been very tight, very tense, so much at stake for both teams, liverpool hoping to win their third trophy of the season after winning the league cup and the fa cup, whereas real madrid are looking to win their 14th champions league title, which would extend their record. if these scores are level at the end of 90 minutes then we could still have extra time, we could still have a penalty shoot—out, so there could be plenty more drama to come, but at the moment, liverpool have plenty of work to do, they are trailing real madrid. it is liverpool 0—i work to do, they are trailing real madrid. it is liverpool 0—1 real madrid. it is liverpool 0-1 real madrid. . ~' , ., madrid. it is liverpool 0-1 real madrid. . ~' �* , madrid. it is liverpool 0-1 real madrid. . �* ,, as we've heard, thousands of liverpool fans have travelled to paris. danjohnson is with some of them. dan. we are six miles away from the stade de france but there are tens of thousands of liverpool fans, perhaps 30,000-40,000 without thousands of liverpool fans, perhaps 30,000—40,000 without tickets, gathered at this fan park that has been created for people to watch on big screens. the atmosphere here all

it still controls. it comes as the russian ambassador to the uk told the bbc that moscow will not use tactical nuclear weapons in the battle for ukraine. our world affairs correspondent caroline hawley reports. russian forces in action in eastern ukraine, where they are making advances. moscow says its forces have captured the town of lyman, an important railway hub, and the key city of severodonestk is now in its sights. translation: if the occupiers think that lyman and severodonetsk - will be theirs, they are wrong. donbas will be ukrainian. but, this is the kind of firepower russia is bringing to bear on the region and, after three months of war, ukraine wants more help from the west to resist. today, president putin spoke to his french and german counterparts, who urged him to hold direct and serious negotiations with ukraine to end the conflict. remember this moment at the start of the war,
when president putin alarmed the world by announcing he had put russia's nuclear deterrent forces on high alert. russia has the world's biggest nuclear arsenal, and this exercise just before the invasion involved nuclear weapons, but the bbc has been told that it is unlikely to use them in ukraine. do you believe that there could be the use of a tactical nuclear weapon in the war in ukraine? no. tactical nuclear weapon in accordance with the russian military doctrine is not used in conflicts like that. so, you do not believe that will happen? i don't think so. can you categorically say it will not happen? we have very strict provision on the issue of the use of tactical nuclear weapon, and it is mainly when the existence of the state is in danger. it has nothing to do with the current operation. but russia does still want to display its military might to the world.
here, a missile is test fired, that president putin says can travel at nine times the speed of sound, its range over 600 miles. the images released today by russia's defence ministry carry a message of the potential reach of its destructive power. caroline hawley, bbc news. you can see the full interview with russian ambassador tomorrow at 9am on bbc one. president biden has urged americans to "make their voices heard" as he renewed his appeal for tighter gun controls. it follows the massacre at a school in texas, in which 19 children and two teachers died. meanwhile, the former us president, donald trump, and other leading republicans have dismissed calls for gun reform, saying the shooting was a reason to arm, not disarm. 0ur north america correspondent barbara plett usher reports. just days ago, children cowered on the floor in this school as a killer armed with assault rifles stalked their classroom. the latest victims of
a uniquely american tragedy. president biden addressed the parents�* heartbreak at a speech at a graduation ceremony. he will be visiting the town tomorrow. those parents are literally preparing to bury their children. in the united states of america, to bury their children. 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 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. travel has been disrupted in parts of the country after airlines cancelled flights
at the start of the half—term break. the companies tui and easyjet apologised, blaming a range of issues, including air traffic restrictions. there were queues at the port of dover too as liverpool fans heading to paris joined other holidaymakers heading across the channel. 0ur correspondent simonjones reports. the great getaway is not so great when you're stuck in queues at dover. football fans and half—term holiday makers faced delays of several hours. charlotte nobbs was trying to hitchhike her way to see family in france after exhausting other options. i was supposed to go and fly this morning back to france. my flight got cancelled so i did a bit of off the top of my head, took a train to dover and hoped i could hitchhike my way back home. well, not home technically, but... lots of disruption. lots of disruptions. how are you feeling? tired. we're only from maidstone, so it's 45 minutes' drive. and it's taken us about six and a half hours, seven hours. seven and a half hours. _
seven and a half hours now, sorry. seven and a half hours to get to this point. as well as a big increase in tourist traffic, p&0 are running a reduced ferry service after sacking 800 workers earlier this year, and there are now increased post—brexit checks. it's adding up to a bit of a perfect storm here in dover. hundreds of lorries were also trying to cross the channel. the coast guard was brought in to distribute food and drink to those delayed. people were queueing around the block for eurostar services at st pancras in london but some won't get away at all. easyjet has cancelled more than 200 flights over the next ten days. rob gore and his three children boarded their tui flight to turkey only for it to be cancelled. he faces missing a family wedding. they've been heartbroken, and when the news was announced on the plane by the pilot, the kids just burst into tears. notjust ours, but every other kid on there. airlines, airports, ports and ferry companies are apologising for the disruption, but are warning there may be more difficult days ahead.
simonjones, bbc news, dover. with all the sport now, here's lizzie greenwood hughes at the bbc sport centre. real madrid still leading liverpool when i can zero in the champions league final. in the rest of the sport... wigan have won this year's rugby league challenge cup — narrowly beating huddersfield 16—14 to extend their win record in the competion to 20. adam wild reports from the tottenham hotspur stadium. wigan, wigan! a new location, the same historic occasion. for 125 years, the challenge cup final has been rugby league's grandest moment. in tottenham for the very first time, a chance for either wigan or huddersfield to make history. pressure, well, plenty, but the giants brought their own for good measure. ricky leutele bursting through for the game's opening try.
leutele the first to score! ahead until half—time. but from the restart, space where there hadn't been space before. wigan hitting back at speed, jai field lighting up this final. the fireworks have begun! as quickly as the space appeared, though, so it disappeared. still, jermaine mcgillvary didn't really need any. somehow finding a way through the tightest gap, the finest margin, but this would be wigan�*s finest hour. just minutes remaining, liam marshall with the game's biggest moment, breaking giant hearts. and so on a day history is made in tottenham, it is the wigan warriors who take home the game's grandest prize. challenge cup winners 2022.

hello. this is bbc news. more conservative mps have confirmed publicly that they've submitted letters of no confidence in borisjohnson, in the wake of the partygate report. more than half a dozen tories have urged the prime minister to step down, since the senior civil servant, sue gray, published her full findings earlier this week, on lockdown gatherings in and around downing street. 0ur political correspondent ben wright has more. the mp for rutland and melton, the mp for brian, he has said he can no
longer defend the indefensible and anne—marie morris who put in a letter at the beginning of the year and had the tory whip withdrawn because she voted with labour on a big vote, and she has resubmitted that letter, that is bringing the number 28 of tory mps that want to bring a vote no confidence. —— brings then i'm better eight. —— brings then i'm better eight. —— brings then i'm better eight. —— brings the number two... the only person that knows is sir graham brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee and he tells nobody. it is a parlour game westminster loves to play but beyond the publicly debate —— declared people, the result we are left guessing about. how likely is it that we will get to a leadership contest? if how likely is it that we will get to a leadership contest?— a leadership contest? if you had asked me that _ a leadership contest? if you had asked me that a _ a leadership contest? if you had asked me that a few _ a leadership contest? if you had asked me that a few months - a leadership contest? if you had| asked me that a few months ago a leadership contest? if you had - asked me that a few months ago and
partygate asked me that a few months ago and pa rtygate was asked me that a few months ago and partygate was brewing, and it was hot, before the met investigated, it felt like there was a move to trigger a no—confidence vote by the dynamics now feel different. sue gray's report has come and gone, we have had rishi sunak�*s statement in the commons offering £15 billion package to try to help people with a gust of living, my sense is that right now today, boris johnson's future, as tory leader, feels a bit more secure than it did a week ago but politics remains really volatile. there are two by elections coming up next month, a lot of tory mps will see how the party does in those. it will be fascinating. 0ther tory mps might decide that it is time for a confidence vote but right now, i think borisjohnson feels a little less perilous than he did a few days ago. vladimir putin says that
russia is open to resuming negotiations with ukraine. he spoke to french president, emmanuel macron and german chancellor 0laf scholz, in a phone call this morning. he told the two leaders that supplying arms to ukraine was dangerous and risked destablising the region. ukraine says any agreement with russia cannot be trusted. they have both blamed each other for peace talks breaking down in late march. earlier, we spoke to the former ukrainian prime minister, volodymyr groysman, to ask how ukraine will keep feeding its people going forward if they can no longer harvest their grain. translation: here, we are not alone. we must not ameliorate the situation from the view of ukraine itself. because here, we are all together in the one boat. and the threat which comes from putin is much wider thanjust
the territory of ukraine. if we imagine that he was successful and he prevented his original plan of conquering ukraine after four days, what would have happened? we would have seen his killers on the eastern borders of nato and the european union. and i see that western governments and western societies, they all understand that it is not only up to ukraine to fight this evil, but for all of us, altogether. if we discuss the topic you asked about, about food, then it is also right to say that putin's actions are provoking a global food crisis, because annually, ukraine harvested 80 million tonnes of grain.
for our internal needs, we only needed 20 million tonnes. the other 60 million, they were exported to other countries, and it was enough to cover the needs of 500 million population outside ukraine. so, indeed, there might be problems and effects which will not only hamper ukraine but also other countries which used to buy ukrainian food. just look at what putin is doing. he is trying to destabilise the media and take it under control. so it is really a priority for the democratic world to stop putin because i believe he is a neofascist. we need every kind of efforts, economic, political, diplomatic,
to eventually get rid of putin and to free russia of putin, and we need to be together and we need to use all possible means. vladimir grossman, the former prime minister of ukraine. let's look now at one of the impacts of the war in ukraine. hundreds of thousands of young russians have left their country — many because they oppose the war. many of them ended up in armenia — a country in the south caucasus which russian citizens can enter without visas. but not everyone feels safe in armenia, which is russia's strategic partner in the region — rayhan demytrie reports.(tx next) a p°p�*up a pop—up russian wedding in this remote armenian town. most of the guests have fled russia. the groom
