just maybe, this year there could be a 2022 uk italianjob! sam ryder, space man, is this year a real contender. he comes out of the darkness and he brings the light, literally. because he is in a kind of crystal maze structure with beams and bars of light. and it pays homage to rock, eltonjohn, freddie mercury, david bowie. i think older viewers will love that, but also his young tik—tok following. 12 million people, and notjust in the uk. so while ukraine has captured people's hearts, italy looks set to yield something rather better than nul points for the uk. # and i want to go home. #. david sillito, bbc news, turin.

time for a look at the weather. here's susan powell. loveit love it or hate it we finally seeing some proper rain across england and wales this morning and further showers pushing across the uk. here is the satellite picture with this area of cloud bringing the more persistent rain and showers dotted about across scotland, northern ireland and the north of england. a wet afternoon to come but getting brighter behind that system. fresher than yesterday thanks to the presence of the rain. in the sunshine it should still be quite a pleasant afternoon and into the evening eastern areas join pleasant afternoon and into the evening eastern areasjoin in pleasant afternoon and into the evening eastern areas join in with that brighter weather. overnight the wind is quite light with plenty of fine weather. rural areas may be
1:32 pm
sliding down into single figures. we start thursday with high pressure to the south of the uk. quite a westerly breeze established between these weather systems in a reasonable amount of fine weather for england and wales, northern ireland but again the scotland getting the wet weather as it has done for much of this week. some that stretching up also to the northern isles. in the brighter spots things go up a couple of degrees on the day. there is then divided not much change with high pressure to the south and france in the far north of the uk. the more wet weather around on friday for the west of scotland and northern isles. more in a way of sunshine for england, wales and northern ireland. by england, wales and northern ireland. by the weekend we start to look at things warming up with high pressure living in and then we hook into some quite humid and warm airfrom the
1:33 pm
continent. it has been awhile since we've been in the circumstances. and then we start to talk about thunderstorms. a fine and warm day on saturday across the uk. saturday night into sunday though looks like it could get lively. these showers could move through a little faster but it looks for the back part of the weekend there will be a chance of some thunderstorms around but also some warmth with temperatures getting up into the 20s. some sunshine for all areas but a few spots may get caught up in those thunderstorms. a reminder of our top story. having a boat on your neighbour's extension, plans to give people more say about housing developments in england. that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.
1:34 pm
good afternoon, i'm isaac fanin, it'sjust after 1.30pm. let me give you your latest sports news. the premier league title race is still on after liverpool beat aston villa yesterday. tonight it's manchester city's turn as they head to wolves hoping to put some breathing room between them and the reds. the two sides are seperated by goal difference. city are going to be short of defenders for the run in as ruben dias, john stones and kyle walker are all injured. regardless pep guardiola's side know that a win or draw would see them go top outright with only two games left the most difficult service in tennis is the service you have to serve to be champion. so it is similar that position. we need six or seven points to be champions. and they will be the more difficult ones. the
1:35 pm
away games with wolves and west ham, we have to do the best of ourselves to do it. from the top of the table to the bottom and leeds can move outside the relegation zone if they avoid defeat against chelsea at elland road tonight. they are currently third from bottom on goal difference and have lost their last two games but managerjesse marsch says that his side won't stop fighting. we still have so much to play for. so our focus is on controlling every moment and being prepared for every moment. so you know and credit to burnley and everton, in a difficult moment they have fought for their live and done what is possible to claw their way back and we will do the same. meanwhile the title in scotland could be decided tonight as celtic go to dundee united knowing anything but defeat will see them lift their 52nd league trophy. a point will do for the hoops. last season they finished 25 points behind rangers. manager ange postecoglou is in his first season in charge
1:36 pm
and he could add a premiership win to the league cup title they won in december. there wasn't a great deal of expectation in terms of success, whether that was because you know me and my own background, orjust the ground we needed to make up. 30 games ago we were a fair way behind in terms of looking like a team that could end up being champions. so 30 games later we have taken an approach that has gotten us to the point. the pga tour have say they won't release players who ask to play in golf's saudi—backed invitational series opener in england next month. the tour said players who take part at centurion golf club injune would be in violation of their regulations. american phil mickelson and england's lee westwood had requested a release from the pga tour to participate. the chief executive of l—i—v golf investments greg norman spoke to bbc sport yesterday.
1:37 pm
no tour in this world, ian, owns golf. not one tour. right? there has been a monopoly in place for 53 years and it's, yes, if the opportunity for players is to go play, you have to play the pga tour. that is it. pure and simple. we are trying to give the players another opportunity to play. them partnering with the european tour sends a signal they're tightening up their control. the players are starting to recognise this. now basketball, and before an nba playoff match last night, one of the games biggest stars chris paul took to the arena wearing a shirt featuring the picture of brittany griner the female player being imprisoned in russia. she had been playing there and was on her way back to the us in february when she was detained at moscow airport.
1:38 pm
they say they found vape cartridges in her luggage that allegedly contained oil derived from cannabis. the biden administration say she is being wrongfully detained but she could face a maximum ten years in prison. that's all the sport for now. good afternoon. some of our main stories this lunchtime. veteran aljazeera correspondent shireen abu akleh has been shot dead while covering an israeli army raid in the occupied west bank. aljazeera says she was shot in the head by israeli forces injenin. but the israeli military says she may have been hit by palestinian gunfire. numerous media outlets including the bbc say the palestinian reporter was wearing a flakjacket with the word �*press�* on it, when she was killed. another journalist was wounded. our correspondent tim franks is injerusalem
1:39 pm
mohamed moawad is managing editor of the aljazeera channel in doha. he explained to my colleague rebecca what he believed happened to shireen abu akleh. it isa it is a sad day forjournalism and journalists. it is crime committed by the occupation forces. they are there doing an operation and then a journalist would intentionally was targeted by a bullet under the ears. she was wearing a helmet and the press vest, but she was targeted. shireen, we have woke up this morning receiving an e—mailfrom shireen, telling our colleagues that i'm heading tojenin. there is an israeli raid. after that we have responded. shireen, you're going to be live on air on the top of the hour. but unfortunately, shireen didn't show up. we called her. she
1:40 pm
wasn't there. i mean, we kept calling her. but then we found these images on social media circulating that she was targeted by a bullet under her ears, while she was accompanied by otherjournalists. accompanied by other journalists. this accompanied by otherjournalists. this is not a cross fire. this area was very safe. she was just entering thejenin and the occupation, the israeli forces was there three days back and they entered jenin without any clash or any resistance from the palestinians. they took down one of the houses. so we are not talking here about shireen covering the war from the israeli or the palestinian side and then was targeted while the israeli or the palestinian were targeting a military area. no, shireen was in a place under the occupation of the the israeli forces according to the international law.

1:42 pm
latest statement from the israeli side was from the defence minister, that was like minutes back. he said that was like minutes back. he said that we are doing an investigation. there might be a fire, cross fire in that area and we are investigating it. so you can't start by placing the blame on a side and then you say i'm going to investigate it. you should have started by saying this is going to be investigated. we didn't start dealing with a crime by placing the blame on others. under international law, the israeli forces are responsible and a journalist wearing a helmet and the press vest, accompanied by other journalists, one of her colleagues was there watching the scene, the heinous crime happening on her. she was like in shock. we have these footages, i'm sure you guys have received it. this was under the
1:43 pm
watch of all the international media and the local media there. this is targeted intentional crime. because who. .. targeted intentional crime. because who... you know in a cross fire, you wouldn't target a journalist under his ears. you wouldn't target him in that area if it is a cross fire and why other journalists weren't. .. that area if it is a cross fire and why otherjournalists weren't... got wounded by these fires. what we are seeing now is a targeted, intentional assassination. i seeing now is a targeted, intentionalassassination. i mean, intentional assassination. i mean, 6am intentionalassassination. i mean, 6am in the morning, she was heading to an area to cover the news. to give voice to the voiceless. she used to do that. she is the second journalist was hired by al—jazeera backin journalist was hired by al—jazeera back in the days after the launch of al—jazeera. more than two decade back, 25 years. and she has been great in reporting accurate and
1:44 pm
impartial objective and neutral. she has been very, very truthful. she is known, well known by the international media as well, because she is usually doing this kind of work and talk every where in palestine trying to report the news, give voice to the voiceless. she is every where and she is by the way a palestinian journalist, but also she has an american citizenship. she travelled the world. she covered the news in london. i met her in london for the first time when i was a correspondent for al—jazeera. she was covering the news in london, the news of brexit in london. she was covering the newses in the us. she is one of al—jazeera's prominent journalists, who we mourn the loss of and who we think that her death is not going to go like this, we are going to held whoever responsible for this accountable and we... we think that the... the israeli forces

1:47 pm
on donald trump�*s election as us president as marc ashdown reports. it�*s a feud that rumbled on for five years. the latest khan v trump instalment played out in front of a packed stanford university event. and we know he used twitter. and he�*s not my biggest fan! the perfect platform to respond to elon musk�*s decision to reverse donald trump�*s twitter ban. that first year, the amount of racial abuse i received on social media increased by 2000%. that led to me having to receive police protection, and a lot of racial abuse. in the last year i think of him being president, once he was banned from twitter, i received the least racial abuse of any time over five years. given tweets were trump�*s favourite method of communication, we will no doubt get a response in due course. applause. no surprise that the mayor�*s
1:48 pm
comments went down well here in the so—called "left coast". i thought his commentary around fake news and how we think about science and whether or not we believe in scientists versus you know these strangers on the internet, was really important to hear. i heard so much about the economics in london, but what it�*s like to be on the ground and hear the stories of his own upbringing, how that relates to how he changes policy in london today was super interesting. i�*m so happy he came to stanford. the focus of this trip, though, is money. next up, a billionaire roundtable. so silicon valley and london have a lot in common. fair to say these tech big hitters could lose $1 million down the back of a sofa and barely notice. the aim, to prise investments away from the bay area and over to its biggest tech competitor, silicon london.
1:49 pm
with baseball coming to the capital, what better place for a catch up with the san francisco mayor. the aptly named london breed. and the honour of that famous first pitch. i�*m relieved! pitching for london successfully! mark ashdown, bbc london, san francisco. now our team at look east report a new weight loss injection could help tackle obesity. it is being used at the luton and dunstable hospital, where staff say they have had promising results. iti where staff say they have had promising results. it i believed one in every four adults is obese that can lead to health problems such as cancer and heart disease. it is a new treatment for obesity, a medication you can inject yourself at home. for barbara, being prescribed the drug has been revolutionary. i prescribed the drug has been revolutionary.— prescribed the drug has been revolutionary. i have noticed a complete _ revolutionary. i have noticed a complete difference _ revolutionary. i have noticed a complete difference in - revolutionary. i have noticed a

1:52 pm
for more than three decades, scientists have investigated the cause of so—called gulf war syndrome — a collection of chronic health problems that affected more than a quarter of the coalition troops deployed during the first gulf war in 1991. now a new study by researchers in texas indicate the nerve gas sarin is to blame. caroline hawley has this report. the war to dislodge iraq from neighbouring kuwait was short, but it�*s been described as the most toxic in history, and it�*s had devastating long—term consequences for many of the soldiers who served. though, for 30 years, no—one knew exactly why. kerry fuller was one of them — a fit 26—year—old at the time of the war. now it�*s a battle for him just to get out of bed. i was getting illness after illness, breathing problems, chronic fatigue — run down all the time. and when i questioned whether it could be anything to do with my service in the gulf
1:53 pm
or what we were exposed to, the military line was, "you�*re talking nonsense, there�*s no evidence — two paracetamol, crack on." kerry suffers excruciating joint and muscle pain. at night, he says he wakes the whole house, screaming. the new research blames health problems like his on the nerve agent sarin, that was released into the air when saddam hussein�*s chemical weapons caches were bombed. the scientists involved say it�*s a breakthrough which vindicates the veterans. but the ones who became ill, our new study shows, are the ones that have the weak form of a gene that normally protects you from nerve gas. and so the people with the strong form of the gene, most of them did not get ill. and you say that definitively now — no kind of ifs, no buts — this is the end of the mystery, as far as you�*re concerned? that�*s correct. due to all the controversy over the many studies that
1:54 pm
have been done so far — all of which had different defects of one type or another — we designed this study over a number of years to be the definitive study, to answer all of the criticisms of studies in the past, so that we would get itjust right. we hope that what our findings will do will lead to a definitive treatment for this disease that would relieve them of some of these symptoms. kerry fuller has not only a huge array of symptoms — including memory problems — but also an arsenal of medication to help with them. that�*s the new lot. yeah. yeah? his daughter, rebecca, has to go to doctors�* appointments with him, because he struggles to process the information he�*s given. he now wants the ministry of defence to act on the american findings. i just hope they take it seriously and do the right thing and understand it�*s...
1:55 pm
for most of us, it isn�*t about money — it�*s about being able to access the right medical treatment. it�*s not a lot to ask... ..for what we did. the mod says it�*s indebted to all those who served — like kerry — and that it�*s already sponsored what it called significant research. but he wants tangible help, and fears that the latest study will simply be swept under the carpet. caroline hawley, bbc news. we heard about the mayor of london�*s trip to silicon valley. elon musk said he will reverse the twitter ban on donald trump once he takes over the company. the richest man in the world agreed a $41; billion takeover bid. but he said it is not a done

1:57 pm
low energy about the deal today i thought. i�*m not necessarily 100% sure that elon musk is going to buy twitter. so lots of reasons why donald trump might not come back on. but the door is more ajar than it ever has been for the former president to make a twitter return. our american technology reporter. more from two. now it is weather time with susan. hello. our early rain is clearing from wales and the south—west of england and we will see drier weather chasing its way east across the remainder of england. in the next few days a lot of fine weather. it will become warmer for all of us. of fine weather. it will become warmerfor all of us. here is of fine weather. it will become warmer for all of us. here is the system that brought the rain earlier and high pressure trying to build from the west and over night. skies clear overnight for much of the uk. showers will still continue to bother western scotland and it will
