but domestic abuse campaigners worry about the message it sends. and here at the home of cricket, the start of the test match summer, new captain, new coach, new england? so far, very good. good afternoon. the queen has taken the salute from the balcony at buckingham palace as trooping the colour begins four days of celebration for her platinum jubilee. there are thousands of people here lining the streets, and we've spoken to some who've come from as far away as australia and the us.
in a message to mark the event, the queen, who is the world's oldest reigning monarch, said she hoped the celebrations would create "many happy memories for people." at 96, her mobility is limited, and she restricted her appearance to the palace balcony, instead of inspecting the troops in person, as is traditional. here's our royal correspondent nicholas witchell. for all that she wants thejubilee to be about communities coming together, creating their own precious memories, in the end, it is all about her. after all, there wouldn't be a platinum jubilee if there were not a monarch who has served for 70 years. and so when queen elizabeth came out onto the palace balcony to review her troops, the crowd showed their appreciation. this was the first sight of the queen stop at 96 years of age now,
there are limitations on what is possible. so for the first time, she hadn't reviewed the parade on horse guards parade. guards instead, hadn't reviewed the parade on horse guards instead, they formed up outside the palace are made all the staging set up for saturday's party, and the salute was taken by the queen, accompanied by the duke of kent. in herjubilee message, the queen had said she looked forward to the future with confidence. that, we can assume, was an implied reference to the future of the monarchy, and so once again today we had a glimpse of the future. it was the prince of wales who led the royal party from buckingham palace. also riding on horseback behind charles were prince william, the duke of cambridge, and princess anne, the princess royal. and writing together in one of the carriages, the cambridges�* three
children, prince george, prince louis in the middle, and princess charlotte. hi! as the charlotte. h i as the procession made its way down the mall, a group of animal rights protesters broke through the corn and attempted to disrupt a marching band before being dragged away by police. 0n horse guards parade, the footguards had formed up. plenty to look out for those newcomers to the parade, plenty to get used to for these newcomers who will see it many years —— who will see it many times in years to come. parade, the duke of york, stripped of his role as honorary colonel of the grenadier guards. the prince of wales led to the inspection of the troops on behalf of his mother. it was the first time the edge of the throne has presided over the parade
since 1951 when the then princess elizabeth represented her ailing father, george vi. keen young eyes were watching from the windows overlooking the parade ground. the sussexes, harry and meghan, were also understood to be watching the parade, although they were not visible at the windows. for an hour, the guards regiments demonstrated their matching skills, the colour of their matching skills, the colour of the irish guards was trooped. the spectacle was completed by the household cavalry mounted regiment. at buckingham palace, the royal standard was being raised to signify that the queen had arrived from windsor, ready for her appearances on the palace balcony. in london, the stage has been set, the platinum jubilee celebrations of queen elizabeth ii are under way. nicholas

was this defamation? thejury said... yes. outside, the fans cheered. johnny depp's lawyers emerged to a hero's welcome. today's verdict confirms what we have said from the beginning, that the claims against johnny depp are defamatory and unsupported by any evidence. amber heard's case had video, photographs and hours of emotional testimony. slapped me across the face. he slapped me again. hejust kicked me. however, public opinion was, throughout the trial, firmly behind johnny depp's claim that he was the real victim here. ms heard, in her frustration and in her rage and her anger, she would strike out. i said, "go ahead, hit me."
bam! so, two completely different accounts of a marriage, and one in whichjohnny depp said he was the victim, and that is what the jury has agreed with today. and not only that, they've accepted that amber heard acted with malice, with a reckless disregard for the truth. and remember, amber heard's account of her marriage was, in a uk libel trial two years ago, judged to be substantially true. and yet from the beginning, she was facing a torrent of abuse. campaigners for those who have endured domestic violence are worried. what we are concerned about in this instance is the chilling effect that the media coverage will have on survivors who need to come forward, and so ultimately that can be a very damaging thing. victims are watching this, and they are thinking about, "how will i be treated if i come forward?"
amber heard says she's heartbroken. she did win part of a libel case over an allegation of carrying out a hoax, but forjohnny depp's team, celebrations. in a statement, he said he had his life back — the long legal battle is finally over. david sillito, bbc news, fairfax, virginia. the american comedian bill cosby is facing new allegations of sexual assault in a civil trial, less than a year after he was freed when his conviction in a separate criminal case was overturned. it's alleged the 85—year—old, once known as "america's dad", assaulted a teenage girl at the playboy mansion in los angeles in 1975. he's denied any assault took place. in 2018, cosby was convicted of drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004 and served nearly three years in prison before being released. in the us, four people have been killed in a shooting at a hospital in the city of tulsa in oklahoma. police say the gunman,
who has not been identified, was armed with a rifle and a pistol. he killed himself soon after officers arrived. the motive for the attack isn't clear. and the teenage gunman accused of shooting ten people dead in a supermarket in buffalo, new york, last month has been charged with domestic terrorism. prosecutors allege 18—year—old payton gendron, who earlier pleaded not guilty, was motivated by racial hatred. gendron, who describes himself as a white supremacist, is accused of shooting 13 people in total during the massacre, almost all of them black. here, the government is to ban the use of the type of metal cladding used to refurbish grenfell tower from being used on all new buildings in the future. known as acm, or aluminium composite material, its flammability allowed the fire to spread rapidly. grenfell�*s bereaved families and survivors are marking thejubilee with a street party table, with a place name for each
of the 72 lives lost. the fifth anniversary of the tragedy is in a fortnight. it's day one of the first test between england and new zealand at lords, and england's cricketers have taken a string of quick wickets. joe wilson reports. at lord's, 0ld father time has overseen countless fresh starts. a brave new dawn can soon lose its gleam. ben stokes, the new captain, needed help in this new era. james anderson, a0 next month, to defy age, to dismiss young. will young out, anderson succeeding again, but look at the left hand ofjonny bairstow to clutch that catch. stand by for the next one. easy this time, jonny. 0oh, just teasing us. new zealand were two wickets down, just two runs scored, everything going, everything sticking for england. got it. to continue the theme, a hat—trick of catches for bairstow, a wicket for the recalled stuart
broad. 0k, what about new bowlers? matthew potts, 23, on his debut, dismissing new zealand's captain. that's what a perfect start feels like. well, nothing is ever perfect. jack leach making a brave dive in the field. he was able to walk away but suffered symptoms of concussion. he'll play no further part. but potts does. with that, new zealand five down. —— with that, new zealand six down. three wickets for matthew potts already. at lunch, new zealand 39—6. 0ne already. at lunch, new zealand 39—6. one morning does not make a summer or a recovery but right now the lunchtime picnic around me at lord's, people revelling in it. thank you, joe wilson. they are revelling in it here as well. it is a fantastic atmosphere here.
the crowd behind me was enormous and there were crowds ten deep line in there were crowds ten deep line in the mall. i met people from all parts of the globe. it must be remembered that this is not everyone's cup of tea — and, for some, it's simply an occasion to enjoy the bank holiday and the good weather. but, for those who are here, they're soaking up the sunshine, the pageantry and the spirit of celebration, as well as witnessing a big moment in the country's history. that's all from bbc news this lunchtime, so it's goodbye from me. 0n bbc one, we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.
