since monday, and she £3.6 million since monday, and she said herself that she would've been really ecstatic had she got a couple hundred thousand pounds because that could of done certain bits of research and treatment that she was really interested in, and now it is up really interested in, and now it is up to a 5.6 million, which isjust incredible. 0k, moving on now to the front page of the financial times. a couple of interesting different stories on their front pages. we are to the one at the bottom, which is bp's to the one at the bottom, which is bp's pledge to plough profits back into the uk, fails to quell calls for windfall tax. rachel, talk us through this windfall tax. that's us on the front _ through this windfall tax. that's us on the front page _ through this windfall tax. that's us on the front page of _ through this windfall tax. that's us on the front page of the _ through this windfall tax. that's us| on the front page of the telegraph, rishi sunak needs to hold firm against a windfall tax. he will be hearing a lot about this in the next couple of weeks. essentially, the cost of living crisis, the price of energy has massively spiked. households are really, really suffering, the poorest and most vulnerable households are suffering

but louis senior made it a hatrick late on with these two teams set to meet again in the challenge cup final in just over two week's time. in tennis, it's 25 wins and counting for world number one iga swiatek. he lasted a canadian while struggling with an injury. the result calls into question his fitness had at the french open, which he has won a record 13 times. it's 25 wins and counting for world number one iga swiatek. she beat victoria azarenka at the second round of the italian open 6—4, 6—1. she joins a pretty elite list — only nine players since 2000 have won 25 consecutive matches, including the williams sisters, roger federer, rafa nadal, and andy murray. french sprinter arnaud demarr beat mark cavendish to win stage six of the giro d'italia. it came down to a photo finish — cavendish, on the right of the screen, led out the sprint, but caleb ewan and demarr both

outpaced him to the line. the finest of margins between those two, but demarr, in the leading sprinter�*s purple jersey, just edged it. spain'sjuan pedro lopez keeps the overall race lead. for more on that and everything else, you can head over to the bbc sports website. and that's all the sport for now. hello again. we're looking at a fairly windy day today across northern areas of the country, and there's a bit of rain around as well. this is where the rain's been over recent hours, it's been quite wet in northern ireland. a few splashes from northern england, north wales, but the majority of the rain has been working its way across scotland. it will continue to move its way eastwards over the next few hours, the rain ending to become confined, really, to northwestern areas
10:56 pm
of scotland, where it will be quite heavy at times, quite windy as well. these are kind of temperatures as we head into the first part of friday morning. so it is a mild start to the day, 9—11 celsius. then for many of us, it's a bright enough start as well. some sunshine to come for england and wales, but a different story for scotland, where low pressure will be pushing this band of rain, particularly across northern and western areas. through the day, there should be an improvement with a bit of sunshine coming through across eastern and southern scotland, but perhaps staying quite damp across northern areas, particularly for the northern isles. the rain reluctant to push away. in the sunshine across england and wales, the winds a little bit later to the south, and there will be a bit more of that sunshine, so warmer, temperatures reaching 22 celsius or so, but quite cool underneath those windier conditions in scotland with that rain as well. well, into the weekend weather prospects, well, we have some thundery showers that we are watching to come up from the south. however, on saturday, should be a largely dry day with sunshine for the majority of the country, given those brighter skies
10:57 pm
are working in across scotland, and to a degree northern england and northern ireland as well, we see those temperatures climbing a little bit here. 17 celsius or so for glasgow, 17—18 in parts of northern ireland. but it's in eastern england that we will see that day's highest temperatures — up to 22—23 celsius. saturday night time, there probably will be some thunderstorms coming up from the south. now, these are going to be hit or miss in nature. the first batch of thundery showers probably not bringing a huge amount of rain, but could bring lots of lightning, but, as we get into sunday and then monday as well, there is a greater chance of seeing some heavier downpours develop over time. still on sunday, there will be some places that stay dry with some hazy spells of sunshine. it will start to feel a little bit more humid in the south compared with recent days. 19 celsius in glasgow, still into the low 20s across parts of the south and east, but then monday, we've got rain or thundery showers that will break out a little bit more widely. some of the rain quite heavy.
