held after the defeat of the nazis. he was addressing the united nations for the first time since russia invaded. russia has again denied its forces were responsible for killing civilians in ukraine. that's despite growing evidence of atrocities in the country, with the focus currently on the city of bucha, near kyiv. new satellite images taken in mid—march by space imaging firm maxar, appear to show bodies lying in the streets — while russian forces were still in control of the area. nato chiefjen stoltenberg described it as "unbearable brutality". president zelensky says more than 300 people were killed and tortured in bucha — he's been addressing the un security council in the last hour after visiting bucha himself. meanwhile, the eu commission president, ursula von der leyen, and top diplomatjoseph borrell will visit kyiv this week to meet president zelensky. it comes as the eu has outlined six new sanctions against russia. they include an import ban on coal,
on transactions of four key banks, and a ban on russian ships accessing eu ports. anna foster has the latest from ukraine. let's hear what mr zelensky had to say this afternoon. translation: right away, the russian milita and translation: right away, the russian military and those _ translation: right away, the russian military and those who _ translation: right away, the russian military and those who gave _ translation: right away, the russian military and those who gave them - military and those who gave them orders must be brought tojustice immediately for war crimes in ukraine. anyone who has given criminal orders and carried them out by killing our people will be brought before the tribunal, which should be similar to the nuremberg tribunal is. i would like to remind russian diplomats that men like... had not escaped punishment for crimes in world war ii. i would also like to remind you that adult... also did not go unpolished. none of
them escape the punishment but the main thing is today it is time to transform this system of the united nations so therefore i propose to convene a global conference and we can do it here in peaceful kyiv in order to determine how we're going to reform the world system, how we will rely, how do we establish guarantee of recognition of borders and integrity of states and countries, how do we assert the rule of international law? it is now clear that the goals set in san francisco for the creation of a global security organisation have not been achieved and it is impossible to achieve them without reforms. therefore, we must do everything in our power to pass on to the next generation an effective
un with the ability to respond preventively to security challenges and just guarantee peace, prevent aggression and force aggressors to peace. have the ability and determination to punish if the principles of peace are violated. there can be no more exceptions or privileges. everybody must be equal. all participations of international relations regardless of economic strength, geographicalarea... relations regardless of economic strength, geographical area... would make un security council. let's go to moscow. let's go to moscow and our correspondent steve rosenberg. what is the likely reaction to the two zelensky�*s called for that nuremberg style hearing. if two zelensky's called for that nuremberg style hearing. if you think the leadership _ nuremberg style hearing. if you think the leadership of - nuremberg style hearing. if you think the leadership of the - nuremberg style hearing. if gm. think the leadership of the russian federation is about to put its hands up federation is about to put its hands up and say yes, we committed war crimes and catch the next plane to
nuremberg for a war crimes tribunal don't hold your breath. what russian officials are doing right now is what they have done for years. every time they are accused of something by the west, whether that is the salisbury poisonings or accused of meddling in us elections or accused of shooting down the malaysia airlines flight or accused of attempting to murder aleksei navalny, that is to deny everything and to point the finger back so in this particular case we heard the russian ambassador to the un say that all the accusations made against his country were on grounded and he pointed the finger back at president zelensky and accused ukrainian troops of war crimes. this is a pattern we've seen for many years. is a pattern we've seen for many ears. ., , is a pattern we've seen for many ears. . , ., ., years. privately, though, in that background. _ years. privately, though, in that background, what _ years. privately, though, in that background, what pressure - years. privately, though, in that background, what pressure is i background, what pressure is president putin and those around him in the kremlin likely to feel, if

removed from the united nations human rights council which is what the american ambassador to the un has suggested this afternoon. weill. has suggested this afternoon. well, it would be a _ has suggested this afternoon. well, it would be a symbolic _ has suggested this afternoon. well, it would be a symbolic move - has suggested this afternoon. vii it would be a symbolic move but i don't think it would change much and i think the russians will be half expecting it. ithink i think the russians will be half expecting it. i think back to what happened i think it was a month ago and sergey lavrov was making a speech and address to the human rights council remotelyjust after russia had begun its offensive in ukraine and i think about 100 diplomats walked out of the hole and refused to listen to mr lavrov. that was a signal, i think, of what a large portion of the international community thought about what was she was doing so i don't think it would come as a surprise to russia if they were kicked out of human rights council but i don't think it change the direction in which russia is moving. the direction in which russia is movinu. ,, ., ., ., ~ moving. steve, for the moment, thank ou ve moving. steve, for the moment, thank you very much- — moving. steve, for the moment, thank

these people have had no choice but to get out by themselves, as that official aid convoy is still unable to make progress. and they are in a sense now the luckier ones, because, of course, the fear is, south of here, behind the russian lines that they've come through, the war is likely to get much worse. russia has laid siege to mariupol for over a month now. nearly 5,000 people, including more than 200 children, have been killed, say ukraine officials. this is your home? lubov shows me what's left of where she lived. with her son and granddaughter, she sheltered in the basement for days. "this was my daughter's house," she says. but others want to get back to mariupol. evgeny left for a work trip just before the invasion. he texts his wife, svetla na,
every day, but there is no answer. they last spoke a month ago in a desperate call during the shelling, and now their home is gone. translation: it doesn't exist any more. - it's been destroyed by shelling or an air strike. i don't have anywhere to go. and i still don't know whether my wife is alive or not. they are urgently trying to track down those missing or trapped, as the world braces to see what else lies beyond these front lines. but for some, at least, it's the end of a journey of fear and survival. tom bateman, bbc news, zaporizhzhia in eastern ukraine. a man who stabbed his neighbour to death outside their homes in gloucestershire has been found guilty of murder at bristol crown court. 52—year—old yann arslan
stabbed father—of—three, matthew boorman 27 times following a long—running neighborhood dispute near tewkesbury, last october. mr boorman�*s family are expected to make a statement outside the court today. a man has pleaded guilty to the murder of 18—year—old bobbi—anne mcleod. she disappeared near her home in plymouth last november. her body was found in woodland a few miles away, three days later. 24—year—old cody ackland was charged with her murder. jenny kumah has the background to the case. bobbi—anne mcleod, just 18 years old when she went missing. the student was last seen not far from her home at this bus stop on the 20th of november at around 6:00 in the evening. she was due to meet friends for a night out but never arrived. after three days of searching, police found her body in a wood near the coast, about seven miles from her home. cody ackland, a guitarist in a local music band, was arrested and charged
a few days later. police said there was no known link between him and the victim. at the time, her brother said on social media... "until we meet again, sis, i love you." singing. this song was made in tribute to the teenager. liv and bobbi—anne mcleod had been friends since primary school. she was funny. very funny. she had you in stitches. you'd walk into a room and she just would light up the whole place. she was just brilliant, a brilliant person. a number of vigils were held in plymouth for people to pay their respects and to raise concerns about women's safety. the city once again in shock at tragedy, united in mourning. the murder camejust three months after the mass shootings in keyham, which left five people dead. women were really scared, understandably so, because it was such a random crime.
a young girl was going out to meet her friends in the early evening, and she ended up being murdered. it's absolutely shocking, so it's not surprising people, lots of people in the community were really scared about what actually happened. the council, together with partner organisations, have set up a commission to tackle violence against women. lynn gooding runs a regional domestic abuse and sexual violence charity and has submitted evidence to the commission. the city's got the safer streets three funding, so there's an awful lot of work going on with that money. so, there's investment in things like cctv. there's, you know, cameras going around the city, improved lighting. today's guilty plea means that bobbi—anne mcleod's friends and family have been spared the distress of a lengthy trial, but the grief continues for her loved ones for a woman described as funny and brilliant by her friends. jenny kumah, bbc news.
the former housing minister lord barwell has told the inquiry into the grenfell tower fire that the government at the time had a "completely false picture of the level of fire safety" in england. lord barwell said he was briefed that the number of fires was falling and he got the impression a review of safety guidelines was "not life critical." he said with hindsight he had gained a "completely false" awareness of the situation. the government has commissioned a review of the latest scientific evidence on fracking. there has been a moratorium on shale gas extraction since november 2019, but the business secretary, kwasi kwarteng, said that in the light of russia's invasion of ukraine it was "absolutely right" that all possible sources of domestic energy were explored. leading footballers and reality television stars are to be banned from advertising gambling. the advertising watchdog says the new rules, which come into force in october, will protect children. let's speak now to james grant. he's a recovering gambling addict and the founder of the big step which is a campaign to end gambling advertising in football.
james, thank you very much. we will talk about your experience in a moment but what is your view of this change that has been announced? deafening. yes, ithink change that has been announced? deafening. yes, i think it is a positive small step in the right direction which will really start to de—normalise gambling to a generation of young people who have just been bombarded with gambling messaging and marketing but probably more relevantly messaging and marketing but probably more releva ntly to messaging and marketing but probably more relevantly to this story is it will start to de—glamorise gambling to young people. if you see peter crouch, harry redknapp, jose mourinho in adverts for gambling those companies are completely legitimised. people think these are completely safe, trustworthy, household names in gambling companies shouldn't have never been household names in football should have never promoted products that we associate with addiction, that cause addiction and sometime suicide so it is a positive move but we would advocate the government and football
itself to go a lot further. haifa advocate the government and football itself to go a lot further.— itself to go a lot further. how much further, itself to go a lot further. how much further. though. — itself to go a lot further. how much further, though, because _ itself to go a lot further. how much further, though, because gambling| itself to go a lot further. how much l further, though, because gambling is a legitimate activity?— a legitimate activity? gambling is a lecitimate a legitimate activity? gambling is a legitimate activity _ a legitimate activity? gambling is a legitimate activity were _ a legitimate activity? gambling is a legitimate activity were 20 - a legitimate activity? gambling is a legitimate activity were 20 or- a legitimate activity? gambling is a legitimate activity were 20 or 30 i legitimate activity were 20 or 30 years ago gambling was a legitimate activity without this complete normalisation and saturation of our screens. i think people would have seen this news today and thought this is good news, because people are fed up with the level of gambling advertising that we have to put up with, notjust in football but across society and seeing celebrities, multimillionaires promote a product that they know will be causing harm to people is deeply irresponsible and people were able to gamble, if they wanted to, before advertising and it is just gone too far and that is why the gambling act is currently being reviewed because more and more people are being hand and young people are being hand and young people of the collateral damage of this. we have already got 55,000 children addicted to gambling in this country and i really feel we are storing up problems for a whole
generation of young people, might myself at 16, who just that gambling is this normal disc three innocent activity but millions of us aren't buying gambling including families bereaved by gambling related since i know that it can be quite the opposite of that —— hand by gambling. i opposite of that -- hand by gambling-— gambling. i believe it is for yesterday _ gambling. i believe it is for yesterday since _ gambling. i believe it is for yesterday since you - gambling. i believe it is for yesterday since you had . gambling. i believe it is for i yesterday since you had your gambling. i believe it is for - yesterday since you had your last bet. it is also your birthday and you had a gambling disorder, an addiction for 12 years. congratulations on the four years and also on your birthday. how did you should stop?— you should stop? thank you, and i didn't think _ you should stop? thank you, and i didn't think at — you should stop? thank you, and i didn't think at that _ you should stop? thank you, and i didn't think at that point _ you should stop? thank you, and i didn't think at that point in - you should stop? thank you, and i didn't think at that point in my - didn't think at that point in my life i would see 32 years old, to be honest, and as much as they want to celebrate the fact i'm four years in recovery i am painfully reminded of the fact that so many aren't here to talk about this campaign or talk about gambling because gambling takes hundred of lives every year and families that are left behind
and families that are left behind and these are preventable deaths. i stopped from a really low moment. it took me from the brink of not wanting to be here any more and i had no option. it was either take my own life. gambling and, fortunately, touch wood i stopped rambling and have stayed stopped and it was a case of not watching football for a few months, sadly, because i'm just getting triggered by the amount of advertising. i couldn't watch a football match without wanting to put a bet on but there was so much... there wasn't a lot of support out there at the time but there is now. gamban and gamstop both block yourself from gambling which is really great. i would say to anybody who has a gambling to study in specialist treatment. what study in specialist treatment. what would ou study in specialist treatment. what would you say _ study in specialist treatment. what would you say to — study in specialist treatment. what would you say to family _ study in specialist treatment. what would you say to family members were concerned about a relative, particularly a child under 18 who seems to be too invested in this activity? j

there's been a landslip whilst they have been bushwalking. it is a rescue and recovery operation. unfortunately, today, as part of that landslide, there's been a man and a boy that have passed away in this incident. a fifth member of the family, a teenage girl, was physically unhurt and managed to raise the alarm. the 15—year—old is being treated for shock in hospital. recent heavy rain is thought to have made the ground unstable. 0ther hiking tracks in the blue mountains were closed because of flood damage and the risk of rock falls. but the british holiday—makers were on a path that was considered to be safe. as a precaution, the local council is closing some of its walking trails. the issue is, it's not unprecedented. this is the third summer in a row it's happened, and we know the climate is changing,
but i'm so concerned that i'm just not taking any chances. with our own walks today, those in high—risk areas are closed pending a full assessment. ijust won't take any risks. a police investigation into the incident is continuing. ambulance officials say it was simply a freak accident. phil mercer, bbc news, sydney. the entire chinese city of shanghai — home to 25 million people — has entered a covid lockdown. until now, there have been separate measures for the eastern and western sides, but now everyone living there has been told to stay at home. reported cases have risen to more than 13,000 a day. residents in some areas of the city said, the strict policy meant no—one was allowed to leave their housing compounds, not even to collect essential provisions. elon musk has been given a seat
on the board of twitter after becoming the the social media firm's single biggest shareholder. twitter says the tesla billionaire's passionate belief in the services the platform provides is exactly what the company needs. more than 100 organisations have withdrawn from the uk's first international lgbt—plus conference because of the government's handling of proposals to make conversion therapy illegal in england and wales. it emerged last week that the legislation would protect gay and bisexual people, but not apply to people with gender dysphoria. the bbc understands that a decision on whether the event will still go ahead this summer will be taken later this week. the number of children in state schools in england who were absent because of covid has stabilised. figures from the department for education show 100 and 79 ——figures from the department for education show 179,000 pupils were off on the 31st march because of the virus. almost one in 12 teachers were unable to work. here's our education correspondent, elaine dunkley
the end of term and the children at stapeley broad lane primary in cheshire are excited about making easter treats. what colours might we use at easter? and teaching assistant miss morris is glad to be back after being off sick with covid. it has been a difficult term. is that where you are going to put it? it's just been really hard work for teaching staff. there is no support. there is no extra staff. we can'tjust call on somebody to come from another classroom, because with eight members of staff off, there is nobody else to call on. the school hasn't had to shut or send year groups home this term but learning and catching up is still being disrupted. it's had quite a big impact on learning and what we've been doing with our friends and at school. but at the moment, i think i'm doing fine, because the teachers have helped us get back to the places that we were. next term, there will be more changes. in england, children with covid can return to school after three days. however, they're advised to stay at home if they are unwell or have a high temperature. the government has also confirmed that schools will no longer be able
to order free lateral flow tests. it's this attitude that it's just disappeared. these parents still have concerns. i think one of the biggest issues with the testing is the fact that it's not going to be free for schools, for teachers, for pupils, and for the whole environment, and that's going to have a big impact. for me, it's only going to get worse. for my son, he's in year 6, so he's expected to do his sats exams. he's had time off where he has had covid. you can't get the true measure of his ability based on the last few years. so, how is tension created here? just down the road at malbank school and sixth form, tests and exams are also weighing on the minds of pupils who've just received results for their mock exams. in just a few months, they'll be sitting gcses and a—levels. myself having covid, that took a few, like, three weeks out of before the mocks, so that was pretty hard to deal with. teachers being off didn't really help at all, because this is one of the most important years we are going to have. see you later. have a good evening. whilst pupils are preparing to sit
exams, the head is worried about getting the staff to ensure they go ahead. typically, we would have quite a lot of the retired community eager to come and support us as exam invigilators, and that is proving incredibly difficult. quite understandably, they're very concerned about coming into a school setting. relaxing the rules and learning to live with covid is part of the government's plan, but high numbers of absences in some schools has meant no let—up from the pressures of the pandemic. elaine dunkley, bbc news, in cheshire. now it's time for a look at the weather with susan powell good evening! it has looked very different between the top and tail of the uk this afternoon. this is the isle of wight this afternoon with blue skies and sunshine levels across parts of england and wales we have seen then thatis england and wales we have seen then that is the low teens but in aberdeenshire there is a covering of snow and hear daytime highs have barely kept above freezing. there is the cold air at the moment to the north of ukraine through wednesday
we have seen low pressure rolling across the northern half of the uk, pulling colton, told the earth and for all of us. for this evening and overnight the majority of the uk stays them out there. pushing its way further north into scotland for a while so the fosters little more limited here first thing on wednesday. to the south, overnight lows in double figures, every mile start to wednesday. wednesday will be a day i think punctuated by punchy, thundery showers. there'll be some sunny spells between times that some of these could give the heavy downpour and it will be windy across the board and particularly the northern half of the uk where they will be gales and you can just see the temperatures of the uk where they will be gales and you can just see the temperature is already starting to nudge down and by thursday and friday they will be scratching around in single figures. the cold weather is set return.

described it as 'unbearable brutality�* ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky says more than 300 people were killed and tortured in bucha, near the capital kyiv. from lviv — anna foster reports. buildings and lives reduced to rubble. bucha is a horror of what is left behind. russia claims images of bodies left behind were faked but new satellite images show them there before russian troops left. ukraine's foreign minister has called it the tip of the iceberg. there are real fears even larger atrocities are still to be revealed. this is north—west of kyiv, another devastated town that has just been reclaimed by ukrainian forces. translation: when they were here they looted the flats, the houses, i
especially in the centre. everything is ruined, everything is damaged, all the flats have been robbed and vandalised. i cannot even look at this, it makes me want to cry. these buildings, i saw them being built when this was a small village. it makes me want to cry. fierce fighting in the east is still forcing thousands of people to flee. today, the train from kharkiv, the army says ukraine's second city is coming under renewed pressure. people are arriving here in the relative safety of lviv all the time and they bring with them painful memories and fresh stories of horror, of life on the russian front line and a fear that everyday could their last. this woman and her children just left kharkiv, since the first day of this war, the 24th of february, they have been hiding in the basement of a school, that was shelled by russian forces.
everything was very scary. we even felt the ground move. thank god the walls remained intact in the basement but the roof broke. yesterday was sasha's11th birthday, he spent it on a train fleeing his home. i received some candy, i really like them because i can get nothing more than that now. i will get my present one day. anna saw children killed when a bomb hit near her house, she could not stay in kharkiv any longer. i was worried for my parents. another besieged city, mariupol, is still without aid. yesterday, a red cross team heading there was detained, they have now been released but the need is growing. after five weeks of fighting, the situation is desperate.
joining me now is malachy browne, from the visual investigations team at the new york times. he was part of the team who analysed those satellite pictures we've been seeing today, which appear to show bodies lying in the streets in bucha during the russian occupation of the area. well, when the images of bodies strewn across streets and basements emerged over the weekend, ourfirst task is to try to verify those coming from the western and professional organisations and journalists and that's what we did and we focused on the bodies that were strung across half a mile and bucha. and russia issued an order to
deny any responsibility and that the soldiers have withdrawn before these parties emerged. looking at sub imagery on the technologies platform, there are able to identify dark spots emerging around march nine, tenth and 11th at these exact locations and mapped out his victims that were found across bucha. and we contacted higher resolution imagery and confirmed that those bodies were on the street when russian forces were in control of bucha and they remained there for three weeks until the russians withdrew and ukrainian organisations and western media went and. �* . , ,., organisations and western media went and. �* . , ., ,, . and. and the support would ukraine has said rather— and. and the support would ukraine has said rather than _ and. and the support would ukraine has said rather than what _ and. and the support would ukraine has said rather than what russia i and. and the support would ukraine | has said rather than what russia has said. how clear is that what we are actually seeing? in said. how clear is that what we are actually seeing?—

ground at the precise location where the fired a high—caliber missile. and a pillar that collapse besides them. and it was very graphic and we weren't sure of the circumstances but this new video that we're looking at today confirms that russian military fired on an apparent civilian in that location and that was an area that they're in control of, there are other people shot out and at that intersection. how useful might this video evidence p in the event that there is a prosecution? is p in the event that there is a prosecution?— p in the event that there is a rosecution? . . .. . prosecution? is critical evidence because it _ prosecution? is critical evidence because it establishes _ prosecution? is critical evidence because it establishes a - prosecution? is critical evidence because it establishes a key i because it establishes a key journalistic question and a question for investigators, when did these atrocities happen and we can see those bodies are emerging in early
march. and those images. government access to even higher definition satellite imagery than we have access to and i do not know, whether scientific, un—proof, supports residence witnesses are telling us we have reporters and photographers and bucha and members of her own team will been going around talking to residents who have witnessed people being shot. they said they may be members of ukraine's territorial defence that were left behind, fighting age men were assassinated and we have confirmation that there is over 400 people in a mass grave in bucha. likely from a variety of causes. but there's so many bodies being found there's so many bodies being found there and bodies that have been stacked on top of each other in the morgue and the authorities are so
overwhelmed that they can no longer perform autopsies and it sounds like an appalling scene.— an appalling scene. thank you so much for talking _ an appalling scene. thank you so much for talking to _ an appalling scene. thank you so much for talking to us. _ the green party has outlined plans to ease the soaring cost of living as it launches its local election campaign in england and wales. the party's co—leaders accused the government of failing voters on living costs and the environment. at the campaign launch, carla denyer and adrian ramsay promised insulation projects to reduce energy needs and keep homes warm. this may, on the 5th of may, we've got local elections coming up and it's a fantastic opportunity to get new hard—working people elected to represent you. greens are standing up and down the country. we've got a really strong track record of hard work and success in pulling the council on the right direction, whether that's on measures to help
tackle the cost of living crisis or the climate crisis and very often those solutions are the same so, for example, in lewes district council where greens are part of the administration, they've rolled out a scream because the lewes model which is about retrofitting all of the council homes in not just lewes but six council model models including green led brighton and hove as well and that is going to lower people spills and is also going to train up a workforce of retro fitters, installers and so on who will then be able to turn their attention to private housing in the region so it is not just sticking to what the council has the power to do but it is also leveraging that effect onto housing across the entire area and that, those are the kind of innovative ideas that green councillors are already leading on across england and wales. if we can get more greens elected, we can get more of that kind of stuff done. the new cricket season starts in england later this week. while each of the counties are ambitious for success, all of them know that the last few months have been dominated by a row over racism.
last november, the former yorkshire player, azeem rafiq, described english cricket as "institutionally racist". the full effects of his testimony are yet to be felt across the sport. joe wilson has been looking at the impact it has had so far as the players prepare. in derbyshire, anuj dal, like hundreds of professional cricketers, has been preparing. spring brings the new season. but the winter was deeply disturbing. azeem rafiq's testimony, his experience of racism, must be game—changing, the game agrees. yeah, but how? what azeem showed in that testimony that he made was that, now, the south asian players and players from different backgrounds now feel as if they've got someone there that's spoken out about issues that are there within the game. and i don't think there is that stigma any more, because now people are thinking, how can i be actively positive to encourage guys and make sure that we all get given the same opportunity and all get treated the same? and all essentially feel the same and feel respected. and that, for me, is a huge one.
it's worth pointing out that azeem rafiq actually spent a month of his career on loan here at derbyshire, from yorkshire. he said he felt valued and welcomed. surely, that should be the basic requirement of any county dressing room. ithink, importantly, it's about creating the right culture. you know, we've had numerous chats with the players. the players have had training. policies are great. i think we are in a good place as a club with our policies, and people know where they need to go if there are some issues, and speak out. but ultimately, it's about the people and culture they create. as a vice chair of the cricket players union, the pca, anuj dal told mps about his early experiences before derbyshire. there were instances as i was growing up where asian players in particular were stereotyped as being lazy, stereotyped as having to work doubly as hard to be afforded a position in professional cricket. well, anuj is now a coach. alongside his playing career,
he runs a coaching business. he connects with the public and he knows that communities must be convinced of cricket's credibility. it is a tough one, because azeem's testimony was so powerful, and i think a lot of parents would have really responded to that and thought, you know, maybe the game is not what we think it is. and that, to me, was quite heartbreaking. and unfortunately, that may be the case with certain parents, but i think there's that natural background just so much love and passion for the game that i hope it swings the other way. anuj dal is english cricket's true all—rounder. there is one job above all he accepts and relishes — he is a role model. joe wilson, bbc news, derby. two notebooks belonging to charles darwin have been returned to cambridge university library, more than 20 years after they went missing. the notebooks, which include the scientist's famous tree of life sketch,
are worth millions of pounds and were thought to have been stolen. but mystery still surrounds who took them and where they have been. 0ur arts correspondent rebecca jones has this exclusive report. they're safe, they're undamaged, they're home. charles darwin's precious, priceless notepads, which have been missing for more than 20 years. but their return couldn't be more mysterious. they were left anonymously at cambridge university library in this pink gift bag, containing the books the notebooks were originally stored in, and an envelope with this simple message. inside, the two notebooks, wrapped tightly in clingfilm. i was shaking — you can hear that in my voice — and i felt joyful. did it make you cry? erm... can i say that? there have been tears. there have been tears, and i think there still will be, because we're not over the emotional roller—coaster. it means so much to us to have these home. this is where the gift bag was left, outside the librarian's office, but with no cctv, the library doesn't know who put it there, or, indeed, where the notebooks have been and why they've been returned now. like many other buildings,
we don't have cctv in places where people are regularly just passing through. 0ur cctv monitors the front of the building, it monitors the back of the building, so we have passed the cctv that we have available to the police, and that's a matter for their live investigation. the notebooks were last seen in november 2000, when they'd be removed to be photographed. despite various searches, they never turned up, and 15 months ago, the bbc first highlighted the library thought they'd been stolen. one of the notebooks features darwin's tree of life sketch, which helped inspire his theory of evolution. there are some of the most remarkable documents in the whole history of science. i honestly think... i mean, the theory of natural selection and evolution — these are the notebooks in which that theory was put together. many intriguing questions remain. where do you think they've been? it is a mystery. they're in good condition, so they haven't been handled much. they've clearly been looked after with care, wherever they have been, and the important thing is that they have ended up back here. so, while darwin's ideas
helped enlighten the world, the notepads now carry a secret story of their own — a secret which may never be fully revealed. rebecca jones, bbc news, cambridge. when it comes to dream venues for playing music, a modest two—up—two—down might not be many artists' first choice. then again, it depends who used to live there. unsigned musicians are being offered the chance to play a gig in a very special house which played a pivotal role in pop history. we gavejohn maguire 'a ticket to ride', and he went to take a look. there some please remember all the lives but times of change. liverpool, it is been restored to look as it did when paul mccartney lived here as a teenager.—

it's been a really different day across the uk between north and south today. across of the most counties, blue skies and sunshine and this was the isle of wight behind me in many parts of england and wales with temperatures in the low teens, close to london. but take a look at this image from further north across aberdeen sure, yes, thatis north across aberdeen sure, yes, that is fresh snow and there's a bit more to come here for the remainder of the day. you can see the picture looks like if you take a look at our air mass, arctic air sitting across the northeastern region of the uk and everyone else in atlantic air thatis and everyone else in atlantic air that is why it has been so mild. to the course of this evening and overnight, it was his milder air pushing into northern scotland for a time as the slow stretches north but actually it will be the colder air that winds out. and the area of what or whether pushing up to the northern aisles. with a friend pushing away eastwards and behind, quite a few showers packing up for
wednesday in the wind strengthening and the temperatures overnight, nine or10 and the temperatures overnight, nine or 10 degrees, very mild just the chance of the patchy frost in scotland. very much punctuated by heavy showers, marching across strong winds, some lightning, some hail and some thunder and already feeling a little bit cooler as you start the week. getting into the mid—teens for many and we're looking at 11 or 12 through wednesday. wednesday night, the core there really starts to dig down behind her area of low pressure and so, after that despite from the snow, it looks like this weather front cutting in with the cold air through the small hours of thursday could mean some fresh snow, some heavy snow for the times and potentially pushing down to the central swathes of scotland for the time on thursday and some which are showers and potentially pushing down into the pen nines as well. thursday generally a quarter day but one offering up quite a bit
of sunshine. still chilly northerly wind and that should say thursday and friday and what you should be looking at is the corridor that is across scotland at the moment sinking all the way south across the uk in this frontal system potentially running into the south early on friday. and it looks like a pushed further south and to the south of the uk, we mayjust escape with some rain but some slight question marks of where they could be a bit more winter across southernmost reaches of the ut on friday but certainly, it is a good look at much colder day for the end of the week and some winter showers will push and to northern in eastern reaches. also still quite chilly to start the weekend but sunday, changing wind direction in a southerly with temperatures coming up southerly with temperatures coming up as they do so, and will come the rain.
today at six, we're live in the ukrainian capital, kyiv, ukraine's president tells the united nations that russian troops are killing for pleasure. in one northern city, satellite images show streets littered with bodies. president zelensky says this is the reality of life, under russian control. translation: the world is yet to see what they have done in other- occupied cities and regions of our country. geography might be different, the cruelty is the same. crimes are the same. and accountability must be inevitable. russia response, telling the un that no civilians suffered under their control of bucha. further evidence of destruction in the south in
