this match was postponed in march obviously because of the invasion from russia. the sfa hastily arranged a friendly match at a charity match between poland and scotland the proceeds of which went towards helping the victims of the ukrainian war. so the sfa feel they have been very supportive and the scotland squad also say that but they say when the whistle goes for 90 minutes or sentimentality will be put to one side as scotland try to get one step closer to qualifying for a world cup for the first time since 1998. time for a look at the weather. here's alina jenkins. we need street party weather! there will be some showers around. some showers this afternoon. not as many
in the last few days but still some showers interspersed with sunshine. you can see where those showers have been congregating scotland and east anglia and the midlands. through the rest of the afternoon some heavy showers across the eastern side of england remaining. feeling warmer than yesterday in the mid to high teens. much of the showers fade away leaving clear skies for many some patchy rain in the far west of northern ireland and through parts of eastern england and south east england. temperatures dropping down to as low as three or 4 degrees overnight in some places. the moral dominating much of the uk. still some outbreaks of rain through northern ireland. plenty of sunshine
to start from any tomorrow. that will fade through parts of western scotland and northern ireland as the rain pushes east. most of us having a dry day and warmer across england and wales with temperatures getting up and wales with temperatures getting up to 21 degrees. at thejubilee weekend it will turn warmer for many with some sunshine around specially further north but an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms developing through the southern half of the uk. 0n developing through the southern half of the uk. on friday we have this area through the irish sea bringing in some showers. elsewhere a dry day and a good deal of sunshine around. really feeling warmer across the southern half of uk, up to 21 or 22 c. cooler along north sea coasts. heading into saturday it starts to get complicated with high pressure
across the north of the uk. france pushing up from france bringing heavy and thundery showers. the wind light as well so they could linger. showers are likely to affect the southern half of the uk and into wales and the midlands. further north it should be drier and warmer but again cooler along north sea coasts. a similar setup on sunday as well. a reminder of our top story... flight cancellations continue as the travel industry struggles with staff shortages. 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. good afternoon, it's 1.30 and here's your latest sports news. paul pogba will leave manchester united when his contract expires this month.
the frenchmanjoined united aged 16 before leaving to joinjuventus. when he returned in 2016 for £89 million, he was the most expensive signing of all time. he made over 200 appearances for united. 0urfootball reporter simon stonejoins us. simon, in a statement the club called it a "low key end to a united career that brought so many individual high moments." perhaps the key word in that is "individual". that's right. some might also question the bit that said so many part of that statement, because in the last appearance that he made for manchester united, he was jeered off against norwich in a poor but i think you're right, paul pogba in flashes has shown why united paid so much money for him, he has shown why
people regard him as one of the best players in the world, but it has beenin players in the world, but it has been in flashes, no consistent period. he scored in the last trophy or the last final at manchester united won in 2017, but it's a measure of what united and pogba have done since then, they have won nothing since then. pogba has not really shone, and really he leaves the club in a desperate state, and with his career at manchester united completely unfulfilled. this departure _ completely unfulfilled. this departure marks _ completely unfulfilled. this departure marks the - completely unfulfilled. this departure marks the start of a summer of upheaval perhaps? i think it will. ithink_ summer of upheaval perhaps? i think it will. i think today's _ it will. i think today's announcement is the first of a few for manchester united, you have people like jesse for manchester united, you have people likejesse lingard and maybe juan mata who are going to leave this summer, along with people they have already announced like nemanja matic, and that means the new
manager has got to bring in new players, there are numerous players being linked with united. frenkie de jong the barcelona midfielder is one that falls into this category. the players that they would like to sign, not all of them want to go and play for a team that is not in the champions league. it's a big sell for manchester united this summer, it's a summer of upheaval, a summer of change, but it's a summer they need to get right, that is what they did not do with paul pogba. simon, thanks forjoining _ did not do with paul pogba. simon, thanks forjoining us. _ gareth bale is also on the move. he said on social media his dream became a reality as he leaves real madrid. it hasn't always been plain sailing for him in his nine—year stint. he won a joint record five champions league titles, but he has come in for criticism from fans and
some members of the media with some saying he was more committed to playing for wales than he was for real madrid. durham seamer matthew potts will make his debut for england tomorrow when they face new zealand in the first test of a three match series. he'll play alongside his county team—mate ben stokes — who captains the side for the first time. james anderson and stuart broad are back for the match at lord's, having been dropped for the series in west indies earlier this year. it will be the first time brendan mccullum takes charge of england as head coach. he has been good, he is all about making everyone feel, in his words, ten feet tall. it's pretty obvious the way that he will speak in the dressing room, because of the way he played cricket and what he did for new zealand cricket when he was in charge of them. it's been a good few days working with him. just hopefully see how this week goes. major champions dustinjohnson and sergio garcia are two of the big names confirmed to play in the first saudi funded liv golf invitational. around £20 million is up for grabs,
42 players have been confirmed including england's lee westwood, ian poulter and richard bland, and northern ireland's graeme mcdowell. one man who won't be there is six time major winner phil mickelson, who's long been linked with the breakaway event, but said he was taking abreak from the game in february. that's all the sport for now. we look forward to seeing you, thank you. let's get more now on the news that within the past 2a hours, both the us and germany have announced that they're to send new weapons systems to ukraine. germany has this morning promised kyiv an air defence system — the iris—t system — which chancellor 0laf scholz says will enable ukraine to defend an entire city against russian air attacks. it comes after president biden confirmed that the us is to provide more advanced rocket systems — something the ukrainians have long been requesting. earlier, we spoke to the former uk ambassador to ukraine, simon smith, to discuss the provision of new weapons systems,
and the impact of economic sanctions on russia. it is hopeful that it will give ukraine new capabilities, but it is the right decision because it is in in our interest to make sure that putin fails in his plan to wipe ukraine off the map. he isn't standing still in his strategy and nor should ukraine's supporters so i think it's very important that the countries supporting ukraine are themselves dynamic and looking at themselves dynamic and looking at the situation, looking at what is needed, looking at what has changed and looking at the changes that they can make in their support to continue to make it more difficult for putin to succeed in his war aims in ukraine. for putin to succeed in his war aims in ukraine-— in ukraine. there are concerns around the _ in ukraine. there are concerns around the risks _ in ukraine. there are concerns around the risks with - in ukraine. there are concerns around the risks with this - in ukraine. there are concerns around the risks with this new| around the risks with this new weaponry being involved, in that it is highly technical. it is precise but there is room for mistakes if
not operated properly. the long—range nature of these missiles means that they are —— they could be accidental incursions into russia, and this is us weaponry, what are your thoughts on that?— and this is us weaponry, what are your thoughts on that? there is risk in any decision _ your thoughts on that? there is risk in any decision that _ your thoughts on that? there is risk in any decision that you _ your thoughts on that? there is risk in any decision that you make - your thoughts on that? there is risk in any decision that you make in - your thoughts on that? there is risk in any decision that you make in a l in any decision that you make in a military campaign and there is risks that have to be carefully weighed and calculated and i'm sure that those countries who are making decisions about what new elements to add to their support to ukraine are taking those risks seriously and making the right calculations. but i do think it is very important, as i said, that this support is kept dynamic, that as the situation on the ground changes come as ukraine's needs in its defence of itself, its country change, but the posture of ukraine's supporters is also changing and that they are also making enhancements to ensure that what it does not happen is that this war becomes a sort of forgotten war,
and that slowly and surely, putin is allowed to make a sort of incremental advance in ukraine because the world attention has gone off. we need to keep active and keep our eyes on what's needed in ukraine. again, with constantly bearing in mind that it is profound in our interests that putin fails. in terms of it becoming a war of attrition that then international attention starts to turn away from, where do you think we are currently? around 30,000 people now daily returning to ukraine having fled after the war broke out. 2.5 million people have returned from those who had initially left. so there are... and that is worth flexion of the fact that the fighting has turned away from those areas which were unsafe, so now the focus is very much on an area where there has been fighting for many years so how far down the path do you think the
situation is to that war of attrition? i situation is to that war of attrition?— situation is to that war of attrition? ~ , ., ., , ., attrition? i think it is at a stage where it can — attrition? i think it is at a stage where it can look _ attrition? i think it is at a stage where it can look like _ attrition? i think it is at a stage where it can look like a - attrition? i think it is at a stage where it can look like a war- attrition? i think it is at a stage where it can look like a war of. where it can look like a war of attrition, it can look like a war in which compared to one or two other phases we have seen in the last few months, you could characterise it as a situation of comparatively less intensity, and one salutes the courage and the confidence of those people going back into ukraine, but i'm sure the message that they don't want to give is that this is a kind of trend towards business as usual, and that this conflict is somehow settling down into some sort of grinding settled state because there is no knowing where putin may decide to go next. i think it would be foolish to assume that because for the time being the aims seem to have concentrated themselves on one area of ukraine, that everyone can sit back and take their feet off the
pedal and lessen the intensity of their support for ukraine once again, truly important that russia does not win this war and it is important that ukraine's supporters keepin important that ukraine's supporters keep in mind how their support can evolve and how could they can enhance that support. 50 evolve and how could they can enhance that support. so when you say important _ enhance that support. so when you say important that _ enhance that support. so when you say important that russia - enhance that support. so when you say important that russia doesn't l say important that russia doesn't win the war, would you rule out any sort of deal on the territory that russia is currently trying to gain in order to end the war? i russia is currently trying to gain in order to end the war?- in order to end the war? i think there is a _ in order to end the war? i think there is a very _ in order to end the war? i think there is a very simple - in order to end the war? i think there is a very simple way - in order to end the war? i think there is a very simple way for l there is a very simple way for russia to end this war, it is simply to withdraw its troops from ukraine. russia is not itself under threat, russia is not itself under threat, russia has decided to invade ukraine, decided to launch this war on ukraine eight years ago and decided to intensify it a couple months ago. and this can easily be rectified by russia withdrawing its troops from ukraine. while it doesn't do that it remains extremely important for us to demonstrate that the costs to russia go on rising,
that putin has made a serious miscalculation in thinking that this is an easy strategy to go in and to snuff out ukraine's independence and sovereignty. ukraine's supporters need to continue to display that it is not a sensible choice and it is a choice whose costs will keep on mounting. choice whose costs will keep on mountina. choice whose costs will keep on mounting-— mounting. the former ukraine ambassador, _ mounting. the former ukraine ambassador, simon _ mounting. the former ukraine ambassador, simon smith. i ambassador, simon smith. residents of shanghai have been celebrating the easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions. 25 million people were forced indoors for 65 days at home or lived indoors for 65 days at home or lived in tents inside their factories to keep some production going to do basic public transport services are resuming in shops are opening. dining out is still banned and most children will not return to face to face killie. robin brant is one of the many residents locked down for the past two months and he has the latest
from shanghai. immense relief. i don't know what you're doing 65 days ago, march to 27th, we were going into a lockdown across this vast city that was initially predicted to last nine days, just nine days. state media saying it would be staggered to try to ease the impact on the economy. that turned out to be 65 days. 65 days of harsh restrictions that have left this city and the people here, frankly, scarred. but things are changing today and the speed at which they are changing is mind—boggling, actually thought we were expecting a gradual piecemeal easing of restrictions but it has come in a big bang and today, the 1st ofjune, people can drive private cars on the roads, there is a basic public transport service, shops are beginning to open, you can get a haircut, you can get takeaway food from a restaurant. all the kind of usual trappings of what may appear normal have returned today. having said that, this is not a full
lifting of the lockdown. interestingly in—state media coverage the word lockdown doesn't feature, they are moving away from that. there are over half a million people here who are still confined to their homes, in areas that are classified as restricted or sealed off. most of the kids are not going back to face—to—face schooling, you can only get take—out food at restaurants. cinemas and gyms are not open. but my life in terms of getting around the city now depends on three things, green code on your smartphone, having a pcr test negative valid for the last 72 hours and of course, wearing a mask. rabin and of course, wearing a mask. robin brant in shanghai. _ now it's time for across the uk. a system which can transform the lives of people with type 1 three terrorists drove a ministries on the bridge before lodging a knife

which you can check. hey, siri. simply by asking siri. what is my glucose? 0k, viewing. you are 5.9 and steady. the monitor holly uses has to be replaced every ten days and costs around £200 a month. but most people have to pay for that themselves. so this huge trial, the first of its type in the world, is going on at hospitals around the country. to see whether it should be funded by the nhs. the majority of those people have already said how much it has change their lives. notjust around bringing blood glucose levels down to their individual goals but also their quality of life. many like holly are hoping the artificial pancreas, it is called, will eventually be funded by the nhs. it has really been life changing for me and itjust gives me that insurance that whatever i'm doing whether it is surgery or sport, or watching tv, the pump has my diabetes under control. the trial runs until november. gill dummigan, bbc north west.
as the country is gearing up for this weekend's platinum jubilee events, one of those preparing to celebrate is 90—year—old piperjackie bogan. he of course remembers the queen's ascension to the throne, and in 1953 he played at an event in hamburg for her coronation. this weekend he willjoin northampton pipe band at the town's platinumjubilee parade. and even at his age, he is still piping strong. i was taught in the school when i was 12 years old and ijoined the local pipe band when i was 15. then i was called up to do my national service with the highlanders and when i went back, they said, go to fort george and get kitted out, you're going to korea. but the pipe major, he said, any pipers in the draft? i put my hands up
and said, yes, sir. so i went to austria instead. we did tours of holland and various other places with the pipe band, but we did play for the coronation at hamburg in 53. it was just one of these things, the weather was good, let's put it that way. i look forward to playing in the parade in abbey street for herjubilee. when i came down here, ijoined northampton pipe band, which is, it is a social band, but the camaraderie is excellent. everybody is so friendly. it teaches you good breathing exercises. i think that is the main thing.
it keeps the lungs good. you've got to be able to fill that bag in two breaths! when the man says, quick, march, you got to be ready to play! i'm very proud to be part of this. i have a lot of respect for the woman. i think the queen is wonderful person. i'm catching up on her in years, but never mind. and nojubilee celebration would be complete without a corgi. and notjust one — in taunton, they've got a whole pack! they've been lovingly produced by local artists and children, and are all now waiting patiently to be discovered. anna varle went to find some.
