lockdown parties in downing street. people are facing huge disruption to their travel plans as the half—term break gets under way. dozens of flights have been cancelled, and there have been long delays at ports and on the roads, as well as cross—channel services. and there are warnings that the disruption is likely to continue for more than a week. let's take you through the latest developments. easyjet is cancelling more than 200 flights over the next 10 days from gatwick airport, insisting it needs to in order "to provide reliable services over this busy period". there have been long queues at london's st pancras station for eurostar services across the channel as families head to disneyland paris and football
6:02 pm
fans try to get to the french capital ahead of the champions league final. and people are being urged to check the latest advice before travelling to the port of dover where there are huge tailbacks as hundreds of lorries queue to get through — tourists however, are being given priority. earlier i spoke to lisa minot, the sun's travel editor, who said staff cuts have caused the delays. unfortunately it is down to staffing issues and easyjet, like many other airlines through the pandemic, they had no income at all, billions in outgoings and they took the decision to make a lot of staff redundant. those staff, they imagined, would come back when the schedules came back and travel was possible, but those staff have found otherjobs. it is not highly paid and the hours are anti—social, so over the last two years perhaps they have found other jobs and that means they don't
6:03 pm
have the same number of crew coming back on board as quickly as they thought and they have to train new crews, and that takes time and also in terms of vetting and security reasons. i think this is the reason we have the problem. the industry as a whole, airports as well, they have issues with this and they have tried to fly before they can walk and they don't have the staff to have the full schedules they are trying to run. an interesting way of putting it, trying to fly before they can walk. i suppose the contraction was so severe in the industry that people thought they could ease back in, and from where you sit, is it fair to say maybe the industry somewhat underestimated how the recovery would pan out? they did underestimate it and they should not have been selling flights. these are flights people have booked that are on the schedules. it really is a case that they put all of these flights back
6:04 pm
on and they could see huge demand, the minute the restrictions were lifted, people perhaps had not travelled for two years and were desperate to go on holidays and see friends and family, so the flights were in the system and people booked and then realised they did not have the crew to actually have those flights going out as they should. hence the cancellations. easyjet point out that normally there would be 425 flights every day coming out of gatwick in the next ten days and they have cancelled just 2a, but 2a flights every day for ten days, that is 36,000 people who have had to organise new flights and cancel trips. and that is not great for the travelling public to have any kind of confidence in the industry. that raises the question of prices. they are already going up because of external factors, inflation and fuel costs. if you add the kind of lack of supply and a big demand, that is also going to push up prices further, notjust for passengers having to rebook flights,
6:05 pm
as they are booking at the last minute, but presumably into the summer season? that is right and we will have to appreciate that airlines have made virtually no money, they have lost billions over the last couple of years and they are going to have to increase flights and will have increased staffing costs and costs in terms of fuel. we are going to have to accept that is the case. if people are prepared to accept flights are more expensive, if they run, they are on time and not delayed and they run, they are not cancelled. that is where we have this perfect storm this weekend with flights being cancelled at such a busy period, even though those easyjet customers are due compensation, it will not be any good in terms of wanting to get away because any flights that are remaining might be hugely expensive and they won't be able to afford the flights that possibly are still available. lisa minot, the travel

editor for the sun. firefighters are battling to extinguish a fire which has broken out on a superyacht in torquay marina. these dramatic pictures were taken from a drone and show billowing smoke from the 85 foot yacht as firefighters try to get the blaze under control. devon and somerset fire and rescue service says it has five fire appliances at the scene of the blaze. there have been no reported injuries at this time. there are fears for the safety of the other boats moored there. you can see that the smoke is impossible to contain, there are 8000 or so litres of diesel fuel on board. we'll now speak to john donavan from devon and somerset fire service. he is incident commander for the yacht fire. a very busy incident for your colleagues in devon? yes, we attended the incident in torquay this afternoon we had reports of an

6:08 pm
but they were not there and it was just the fuel that was the main source of hazard for us. we were able to contain the fire but due to the severity of the fire on the yacht, the yacht has now sunk into the harbour itself. which has presented another hazard, which is the environmental consideration and the environmental consideration and the fuel that is on board. during our firefighting tactics we were able to work with the harbour master and the environment agency and we were able to set up a number of berms in order to contain the fuel that was leaking from the vessel. just to be clear, you are hoping that those booms will contain the fuel because presumably what you don't want it seeping beyond the harbour wall?— don't want it seeping beyond the harbour wall? ~ . ., ., , harbour wall? what we have done is we have utilised _ harbour wall? what we have done is we have utilised the _ harbour wall? what we have done is we have utilised the equipment - harbour wall? what we have done is| we have utilised the equipment from the harbour master and the environment agency and our own environmental equipment in order to

contain some of the fuel that has come out of the vessel. and then we have the environment agency, the harbour master, putting together a clean—up team and implementing an environmental plan to contain that fuel and remove it from the water within the harbour.— fuel and remove it from the water within the harbour. presumably your officers were — within the harbour. presumably your officers were having _ within the harbour. presumably your officers were having to _ within the harbour. presumably your officers were having to do _ within the harbour. presumably your officers were having to do this - within the harbour. presumably your officers were having to do this at - officers were having to do this at the same time as trying themselves to not ingest any smoke. there were a lot of people in the marina, on a lovely summer afternoon, particularly at half term. do you have any idea of the numbers you are having to evacuate? we have any idea of the numbers you are having to evacuate?— having to evacuate? we worked toaether having to evacuate? we worked together with — having to evacuate? we worked together with our _ having to evacuate? we worked together with our partner - having to evacuate? we worked - together with our partner agencies, we had the coastguard and police and the harbour master and the environment agency, the police did a good job so we closed off a majority of the harbour and the main points of the harbour and the main points of interest in torquay so the smoke

6:12 pm
restored to her after losing it injanuary. a short time ago our political correspondent charlotte rose told me more. the reason that she had the whip remoed and to expand to people what that means, it is a form of discipline for mps if they don't do what they are told. to have the whip remoed means you are effectiely no longer a member of the parliamentary party. she had it taken away injanuary because effectively she supported labour in a vote they held calling for a cut to vat on energy bills. the whip was taken away and that meant she was not able to submit a letter of no confidence in borisjohnson because she no longer technically counted as a tory mp. she has just been readmitted to the party. she counts again and she says she has resubmitted that letter. that takes us up to eight mps we know about who have submitted letters since the sue gray
6:13 pm
report was published. we know other mps said a few months ago that they had submitted letters. the reality is, we don't actually know how many other letters have stayed submitted, how many other letters may have been submitted and dare i suggest the idea, whether there might be mps who hae said, "i submitted a letter", but they have not done that because they're currying faour with the public. we never get told! you are right. what we need to be clear about is because we are finding out about something of these now it does not mean these letters are new. two people who have in recent days said they have put
6:14 pm
in a letter hae actually said, it went in a few months ago. we are not necessarily getting any closer to the 50 for letters that would trigger a leadership ballot. we could be ery close. one thing that is worth noting is that even though we did not know about these and they may not be new, we have clearly reached a point with the publication of the sue gray report were enough mps feel angry enough about borisjohnson and his leadership and the government and how it is performing that there are willing to say they have put in letters een if they have done this before and not told us. charlotte rose. tens of thousands of lierpool fans hae not been deterred by transport problems in the uk, to make their way to france. there are reports some een chartered speedboats to cross the channel to get paris where lierpool face real madrid at the stade de france... it is good—natu red, it is good—natured, mostly real madrid fans passing across this walkway into the 75,000 capacity stadium. a few liverpool fans coming
6:15 pm
through as well. he is definitely real madrid! very good—natured and i think everybody is just so excited to have a ticket, 20,000 officially for liverpool, 20,000 for real madrid and then uefa distribute 23,000 amongst member associations, sponsors, partners, 12,000 went on general sale globally and both these teams command a huge global audience and these tickets, some people have paid through the roof for them. but after a couple of flat champions league seasons, this has all the makings of something very special. we will have more on sportsday after the national news. the former us president, donald trump, and other leading republicans hae dismissed calls for gun reform, days after 19 children and two teachers were killed by a teenager with an assault rifle in texas. speaking at the national rifle
6:16 pm
association gun lobby convention in houston, mr trump said the massacre in uvalde was a reason to arm, not disarm. this report from our correspondent, sanchia berg. just days ago, children cowered in their classroom here in uvalde as an armed man came in and started shooting. by the time police stormed in, 19 children and two teachers had been killed. as families grieve and try to understand what happened, some politicians are weighing in. in houston, 300 miles away, former president donald trump condemned the shooting and said the answer was to arm teachers. surely we all agree our schools should not be the softest target, our schools should be the single hardest target in our country. applause. and that's why, as part of a comprehensive school safety
6:17 pm
plan, it's time to finally allow highly trained teachers to safely and discreetly concealed carry. let them concealed carry. he was speaking at the annual meeting of the national rifle association. 0utside, protesters gathered, some in t—shirts spattered with red, calling for tighter gun control. i don't have a problem with anybody owning a gun, but i do believe that assault rifles were never meant for ciilians. back in uvalde, officials hae now acknowledged police made grave mistakes. 0fficers wrongly thought the gunman had barricaded himself in. they took time to organise an operation. while children in other classrooms escaped, those under attack were calling emergency services, whispering into their phones. the revelations hae angered the state's goernor. the information that i was given turned out, in part, to be inaccurate. i am absolutely livid about that.
6:18 pm
ruben heard shots and found out later his great granddaughter had been killed. where was the police that were supposed to be there to protect them kids? where was he? at first they said he was there, he confronted the shooter. and now they are retracting, and saying they are not. i've been watching tv all day, and i watch it at night, until 12 o'clock, wondering why, why, why? that's all i can tell you. 0n the national stage, the shootings amplified the gun—control debate. but for the families here, the prevailing emotions are shock and grief. sanchia berg, bbc news. earlier today president biden spoke about the shooting while giving a commencement address at his alma mater, the university of delaware. tomorrow i will be heading to

6:21 pm
but the message from the world health organization is that this can be controlled. we are afraid that there will be spreading in community, but currently this is hard to assess as a risk, we think that if we put in place the right measures now, we probably can contain this easily. the who said a mass vaccination programme was not required. smallpox jabs could be given to close contacts of those affected. wendy urquhart, bbc news. sci—fi fans have been bombarded this week with news from the star wars universe. a new show, obi—wan kenobi, has launched on disney+ with other spin offs in the pipeline. and after a two—year delay, the annual star wars celebration event is back in los angeles. here's mark lobel. they are coming. stay hidden — or we will not survive.

there's too much violence, too much fear. too much grief. the massacre thrust the issue of gun control back into national focus. gun rights activists say they were horrified by the violence. but the national rifle association went ahead with its convention in texas, supported by its high—profile champion. like others, he insisted the solution had nothing to do with guns. the existence of evil in our world is not a reason to disarm law—abiding citizens who know how to use their weapon and can protect a lot of people. the existence of evil is one of the very best reasons to arm law—abiding citizens. it's taking our babies! the convention was a target for growing outrage over mass shootings with assault weapons, and over the fierce opposition to gun control in the republican party. here in uvalde people say something has to be done, but they are reluctant to get into the bitter partisan debate
6:34 pm
over gun restrictions. and they are consumed with the process of grieving, planning funerals now that will start to take place in the coming days. the sorrow here is mixed with anger over mistakes made by the police. this man, ruben mata montemayor, heard the gunshots from a distance. he found out later they'd killed his great—granddaughter. where was the police that's supposed to be there to protect those kids? why, why, why? there are no answers here. they are beseeching a higher power to help them. barbara plett usher, bbc news, uvalde, texas. a large fire has broken out on a superyacht in torquay marina. witnesses described hearing a bang before flames engulfed the 85—feet vessel. police have declared it a major incident and have evacuated the surrounding area. 0fficers said there have been no reported injuries. in rugby league, wigan warriors have won the challenge cup after snatching victory from huddersfield giants in the final minutes.
