you sit up and take notice of it, you sit up and take notice of it, you do take it serious and there is a chance for us to qualify. south african sides will be joining european club rugby's elite from next season. the stormers, bulls and sharks will play in the champions cup. they've been playing in the united rugby championship for a few season alongside irish, welsh and italian sides. the lions will play in the challenge cup. 0rganisers say their inclusion will bring �*a new level of elite rugby'. manu tuilagi will miss england's tour of australia because of surgery on a knee problem. injuries have plagued the sale sharks centre. since the 2019 world cup final, he's only played six games for england. in a statement, sale said "a summer of rest and a full pre—season is the best course of action". iga swiatek is through to the final of the french open, with a dominant straight—sets victory over daria kasatkina. the world number one tookjust 64 minutes to make her second

it is something that i have obviously let drift for a long time. it has been a difficultjourney to get to this point. but over the last couple of years, it has become a lot easier. and i think that it is really important that people like me are willing to sit here and do this. i don't think this needs to be a new story but i think, at the moment, it really does because we need to see the climate change so that people do feel they can be their true self and live happily and comfortably in their own skin. and that needs to transcend into football. that's all the sport for now. a wicket has just fallen between england and new zealand, zach crawley. test match special is on the bbc sounds app. there's a live page too on the bbc sport website. around 2 million people are expected
to go abroad during thejubilee bank holiday weekend and airports deal with staff shortages and high demand. the transport secretary grant shapps has told the heads of travel companies at a meeting that they should do their bit to improve they should do their bit to improve the situation. let's speak to our travel correspondent, simon browning. simon, what is the latest on the situation today for travellers? i am ha - to situation today for travellers? i am happy to say _ situation today for travellers? i am happy to say it _ situation today for travellers? i am happy to say it seems _ situation today for travellers? i —.n happy to say it seems like the situation is finally improving, after what has been a really difficult week for so many travellers going on holiday through the jubilee travellers going on holiday through thejubilee weekend and half—term. i have spoken to the bigger pots today, manchester, gatwick and heathrow, and they are all reporting no issues. the caveat is, it is still incredibly busy. millions of people, to 2 million people expected to take flights out of the uk this weekend on international trips heading to the beaches for a bit of sunshine to see friends and family. but the airports are still really busy, they point to the fact there are still pinch points within the airports. check—in is very busy, security is busy, but they say
things are improving after a difficult week. we had so much about tui cancelling six flights a day from manchester, they have said things have returned to normal, they highlighted 80% of passengers, that is 34,000 who have had holidays disrupted this week, have now rebooked holidays. there has been a bit of advice and backtracking today. one big union advised people because of the queues at check—in to may just take because of the queues at check—in to mayjust take hand baggage. to stop the big queues. but that has been pulled up on and one of the aprot say if you just take hand baggage, that will hit security because there will be so many bags, so you have just got to be prepared to queue. but today, things operating much better and the airports and airlines are happy. better and the airports and airlines are ha - . . , better and the airports and airlines are ha--. . , better and the airports and airlines areha.._ . , . are happy. that is some small consolation — are happy. that is some small consolation for _ are happy. that is some small consolation for travellers, - are happy. that is some small- consolation for travellers, perhaps. what more do we know between that meeting between travel bosses and the government?— meeting between travel bosses and the government? transport secretary grant shapps _ the government? transport secretary grant shapps and — the government? transport secretary grant shapps and the _ the government? transport secretary grant shapps and the aviation - grant shapps and the aviation minister effectively summons some of the big airline and aviation bosses to talk in a big zoom. lots of
things talked about about these problems in the media for the last week. we know there is chronic understaffing at a lot of these sectors of the airport. and the government want to know how they can solve this. the airline bosses and aviation companies were asking for special visas for eu workers so that eu workers can fill some of these gaps in ground handling and capering —— catering companies. we understand from a couple of sources this morning the government pretty much rebuffed that idea and said it was not possible. the aviation industry is quite frustrated by that, they have thousands, tens of thousands of gaps to fill. steve heb, the boss of jet2, thought that would be a good idea because he says so many workers missing from the economy after brexit and they can be helped if we got visas for some eu workers. the department for transport today say was the government listened to those suggestions and they were noted, nothing further was added. so it looks like that won't happen. and we are still facing a situation where
the summer holidays are coming. everyone will be going back on holiday and the airports need to fill those big jobs. so a big challenge, they have set up a working group to solve some of these issues. but i suppose over the coming weeks, they need to fill these jobs we don't see any more of these jobs we don't see any more of these big queues and disruption for so many people who want to see the sun for their family holidays. ﬁnd sun for their family holidays. and we will continue _ sun for their family holidays. and we will continue to keep an eye on things, thank you, simon. johnny depp has said he feels at peace after winning his libel case against his ex—wife, amber heard — following her claims in an article that she was a victim of domestic abuse. he has been awarded more than $10 million in damages, whilst ms heard was awarded $2 million for winning part of her libel case against him. domestic abuse campaigners say they're concerned the verdicts could send the wrong message to victims — as david sillito reports. mr foreperson, is this the verdict of the jury? — after six weeks in court, and six years of angry accusations after their divorce,
the court — and millions across the world — watched the jury's judgment on amber heard's declaration that she had suffered domestic violence at the hands ofjohnny depp. 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. cheering 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. and 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's 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're 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 her 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. i'm joined now by david johnson, who is chief executive and founder of the strategic vision pr group. he specialises in crisis communications and reputation management. thank you forjoining us today. first, what effect do you think this verdict will have onjohnny depp as my career and how hollywood views him when it comes to undoing some of the damage the allegations had in the damage the allegations had in the first place? i the damage the allegations had in the first place?— the first place? i think it completely _ the first place? i think it completely vindicates i the first place? i think it i completely vindicates him. the first place? i think it - completely vindicates him. i think hollywood now will embrace him with open arms. and his star is on the is again. i think hollywood was waiting
to see how the jury would react, how public opinion in the united states would react. and based on that, they are now team johnny. ﬁnd would react. and based on that, they are now team johnny.— would react. and based on that, they are now team johnny. are now team “ohnny. and as we heard in the report. — are now team johnny. and as we heard in the report, public— are now team johnny. and as we heard in the report, public opinion _ are now team johnny. and as we heard in the report, public opinion it - are now team johnny. and as we heard in the report, public opinion it was - in the report, public opinion it was very much throughout this onjohnny depp as my favour. what role do you think the court of public opinion played in all this? ﬁlth. think the court of public opinion played in all this?— think the court of public opinion played in all this? oh, it played a massive role. _ played in all this? oh, it played a massive role. and _ played in all this? oh, it played a massive role. and let's _ played in all this? oh, it played a massive role. and let's not - played in all this? oh, it played a l massive role. and let's not forget, johnny depp's legal team and prt knew it. everything they did, from the way they presented their case to the way they presented their case to the way they presented their case to the way that they held after court sessions with the media, to their social media strategy, to their various appearances was all tailored to win the court of public opinion. because by winning the court of public opinion, hollywood would react. �* , ~ ., public opinion, hollywood would react. �* , ~' ., ~ , react. and they knew that. amber heard did of— react. and they knew that. amber heard did of course _ react. and they knew that. amber heard did of course when - react. and they knew that. amber heard did of course when part - react. and they knew that. amber heard did of course when part of i react. and they knew that. amber i heard did of course when part of her libel case and yes, public perception has seemed to be all
about viewing this as a victory, perhaps that is the wrong word, for johnny depp, why do you think that is? ,, ., ., , johnny depp, why do you think that is? ,, ., , ., , is? several reasons. i advised la ers is? several reasons. i advised lawyers and — is? several reasons. i advised lawyers and celebrities, - is? several reasons. i advised lawyers and celebrities, you l is? several reasons. i advised i lawyers and celebrities, you have is? several reasons. i advised - lawyers and celebrities, you have to not only win in the court room, you have to win in the court of public opinion. and what we seemed to see was a disconnect between amber heard's pr team and her legal team. her legal team was fighting in the court room, but they were not fighting to win in the court of public opinion. and her pr team seemed to be mired in chaos. she fired her publicist mid—trial. and then her new publicist that she hired became mired in controversy because he had his own meetoo issues. there was no coordination. the other thing is damaging news with amber heard came out byjohnny depp's team. smart legal and pr
strategy would have been to be proactive and get any damaging news about amber heard out themselves so they could control the narrative. instead, they always seemed to be behind, reacting, ratherthan being proactive. and finally, johnny depp knew how to play it for the tv cameras. amber heard did not seem ready for prime time. and that hurt her as well. ready for prime time. and that hurt her as well-— her as well. david, from a pr persoective. _ her as well. david, from a pr perspective, someone - her as well. david, from a pr perspective, someone like i her as well. david, from a pr - perspective, someone like yourself, do you see how some people might find it a bit odd or think perhaps talking about the pr side of things muddies the waters in the world of justice? i muddies the waters in the world of 'ustice? ., , , ., ., justice? i do fully understand that. but more justice? i do fully understand that. ltut more and _ justice? i do fully understand that. but more and more, _ justice? i do fully understand that. but more and more, attorneys - justice? i do fully understand that. but more and more, attorneys are | but more and more, attorneys are realising that it is notjust winning the verdict in the courtroom, it is winning in the courtroom, it is winning in the court of public opinion as well. and thatis court of public opinion as well. and that is why they do a pr strategy. a
client can win massively with the jury. but if the public believe it, it is never going to change their opinion. ﬁn it is never going to change their oinion. ., it is never going to change their oinion. . ., ,, , it is never going to change their oinion. . . ,, , ., ~ it is never going to change their oinion. . ., ,, , ., ~ opinion. on what happens. thank you very much. — opinion. on what happens. thank you very much. david. — opinion. on what happens. thank you very much, david, for— opinion. on what happens. thank you very much, david, for your _ opinion. on what happens. thank you very much, david, for your thoughts i very much, david, for your thoughts and forgiving your insight. thank you. david johnson. more than three and a half thousand beacons are being lit across the uk and the commonwealth this evening. members of the royal family will be at buckingham palace for the lighting of the principal beacon — a 21—metre tree of trees sculpture. robert hall is injersey where ceremonies will also take place to light beacons. the most southerly spot in the british isles to have a beacon event this evening. a bit more about the beacon, but take a look at this view. what a spot to have that event! if you don't knowjersey, that is elizabeth castle in the distance.
the port of st helier in front of me here. and this area is actually part of victorian fortifications that were built in the napoleonic times to protect the town and, indeed, the island. and another great tradition is that jersey has a bailiff, the head of the civic community. tim le cocq, you are now — as of today — sir timothy le cocq. lam. many congratulations. thank you very much. i wanted to just talk a little bit aboutjersey�*s special place, before we talk about some of the practicalities of what you're going to do. becausejersey�*s always had this special link with france. very proudly part of britain, but there is a link, isn't there? well, yes, very much so. until very recently, all our laws were written in french. and french is still a permitted language in our courts and in our states assembly, so we have real current links with our french roots, definitely. and the queen, of course, here is the queen, but she's also jersey's duke. can you tell me about that? yes, well, when william the conqueror invaded england in 1066, jersey and the other channel islands were also, even then, part of the duchy of normandy. so, in effect, we were part of william's possessions. so the queen's right
is following on from william's right, and william's right was as duke of normandy, so she's our duke. so, you drink toasts to her. we do. jersey dares to be different an awful lot and you're different tonight with your beacon. tell me about that. well, the beacon — as you can see, hopefully, over my shoulder — is a virtual beacon. and it will be lit at the normal time when all the other beacons are lit throughout the british isles, but it will be virtual and it will be followed by a laser show. so there won't actually be any fire. it will be ecologically sound, environmentally friendly. and we hope it's going to be spectacular. we're certainly expecting it's going to be. it has been a little bit of a rolling celebration here. because of covid, you weren't able to mark your traditional liberation. all the islands mark their liberation from the german occupation at the end of the second world war. 77 years this year. for the first time, you were able to mark that in some style. and in a way, that sense of celebration has rolled on, hasn't it? well, it has. we had a marvellous liberation day, which we celebrate in may.
and we had, at the same time, a visit from the earl and countess of wessex, which made it a particularly special occasion for us. so they came over and delivered a message from her majesty the queen. and we had a liberation day of the type that we had hoped to have. everybody together, thousands of people, beautiful weather, and a marvellous occasion. and in a sense, they came over, in part, because it's her majesty's platinum jubilee year. so that sense of occasion has, i think, continued and rolled into these platinum jubilee celebrations that we're having over the next couple of days — starting now, of course, with the lighting of the beacon. i think in all the islands... i was talking to organisers in guernsey and in alderney and in sark, there is this sense that, we are definitely... that we can pull out all the stops, finally. because it's been tough, in a way. the islands had to almost shut themselves down for a brief period, like so many other places. yes, i don't think it was any worse for us than it has been for many people throughout the united kingdom and, indeed, in great britain.
but it was tough and people did have lockdown, and we weren't able to celebrate, as you say, liberation day, for the last two years. so really, islanders welcoming the opportunity to come out on a particularlyjoyful occasion like this, an amazing achievement on the part of her majesty the queen, and to come out and celebrate it. and i'm very much expecting they're going to come out in significant numbers. tim le cocq, sir timothy le cocq, thank you very much indeed for talking to me. great pleasure. as i say, this beacon is special. special island, special group of islands, and we hope that we'll be getting those pictures into the national and international picture of that beacon event this evening. robert hall from jersey, one of the places across the british isles and indeed the commonwealth where there will be ceremonies to do with the beacons being lit. and the queen will be at windsor castle. what beacons being lit. and the queen will be at windsor castle.- will be at windsor castle. what is ha -renin will be at windsor castle. what is happening there. _ will be at windsor castle. what is happening there, charlotte? - will be at windsor castle. what is happening there, charlotte? as l will be at windsor castle. what is i happening there, charlotte? as you can see behind me, the final
finishing touches being made to one of thejubilee beacons in the grounds of the castle. the wood has been loaded in and that will be lit on fire at about quarter to ten this evening. the queen herself is going to be inside the castle grounds, she will be starting the ceremony for the lighting of the beacons. and people here in windsor are very excited, very many of them. because the queen lives here for most of the year, this is her official residence really now for most of the year. and the town has been done up completely for thejubilee, you can't fail to realise it is thejubilee. there is miles of bunting, union flags draped in the windows of pubs, restaurants, shops. even dogs have been decorated here. i have seen so many with jubilee bow ties and bandannas, lots of children in fancy dress. and i have to tell you, the pubs are already very busy. so i think the people of windsor all ready to celebrate with the queen. lovely, charlotte, thank _
celebrate with the queen. lovely, charlotte, thank you. _ celebrate with the queen. lovely, charlotte, thank you. the - celebrate with the queen. lovely, charlotte, thank you. the beacon | charlotte, thank you. the beacon lighting is a quarter to ten. messages from abroad have been coming in from world leaders — in a moment, we'll hear from the president of france emmanual macron — but first here's the president biden and the first lady of the united states — and their message to the queen.
our two countries. through the dark days when your family welcomed general de gaulle in your home to hisjoy to welcome general de gaulle in your home to his joy to welcome you, you have been a constant presence and a source of wisdom for the leaders of our two countries.— our two countries. president macron's — our two countries. president macron's message - our two countries. president macron's message for - our two countries. president macron's message for the i our two countries. president - macron's message for the queen. now, the conclusion of trooping the colour was the spectular fly—past, but not everyone seemed to enjoy it. here's prince louis — the youngest son of the cambridges of the balcony waving at the planes with his great—grandmother, the queen, next to him. but the noise soon become too much for him. that is a brilliant picture. that expression! royal or otherwise, that could be any kid. i love the fact that could be any great grandson. dealing with the noise. royal or otherwise, kids will be kids. now for a royal weather forecast, this
is ben. i can't promise a royal weather forecast, it isjust i can't promise a royal weather forecast, it is just me, sorry about that. it wasn't too bad for the events in central london today, there has been a decent start to the jubilee weekend a decent start to thejubilee weekend for a decent start to the jubilee weekend for many. a decent start to thejubilee weekend for many. and as we saw, it was nice enough for the fly—past, the red arrows going overhead at st paul's cathedral. but it wasn't a bright story everywhere. lots of cloud overhead for a weather watcher in bangor, county down. northern ireland having the raw end of the deal today, the radar showing outbreaks of rain. there have been showers elsewhere as well. as we go through this evening and tonight, though showers continue in some places, we will see increasingly wet weather developing across north wales, northern england into southern scotland and low cloud across the north—east of scotland. but elsewhere, clear spells, across the north—east of scotland. but elsewhere, clearspells, not quite as chilly as it was last night. tomorrow, we will see outbreaks of rain to start across
parts of north wales. northern england commitments southern scotland. rain breaks up into showers, some will be heavy, possibly thundery, some showers into northern ireland, south—west england. and some of this misty and murky and great low cloud around north sea coasts. that pegs the temperatures back, 15 or 16 degrees. down to the south, 21 in cardiff, 22 in london and western scotland standing out as one of the bright and warm spots for the day tomorrow. i think western scotland will do quite well into saturday. high pressure lingering here. to the south, we see a frontal system starting to throw cloud and potentially some scattered showers and thunderstorms across southern counties of england into wales and the midlands through the day. but showers hit—and—miss, still a lot of dry weather around. quite murky along north sea coasts and on the cool side, the best of the sunshine further north and west. look at that temperature in the western highlands, 22 degrees. saturday
night, all ice to the south because showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread and extensive, spreading to east anglia, the midlands, parts of wales, northern england through sunday. so heavy thundery rain continues to work northwards, may be getting into northern ireland by the end of the day. to the south of that, a lot of cloud cover some sunny breaks and still the chance of the odd shower or thunderstorm. to the north, the best of the sunshine. and again, the highest temperatures, 21 degrees in western scotland. but yes, the increasing chance of heavy showers drifting from the south as we head deeper into the weekend.
this is bbc news. i'm luxmy gopal. the headlines — celebrations have begun for the queen's platinum jubilee, with the trooping the colour ceremony kicking off four days of special events. prince charles took the salute on behalf of the queen during the ceremony at horse guards parade. the queen was joined on the balcony at buckingham palace by working members of the royal family, which did not include prince harry and meghan. thousands lined the mall to watch the ceremonies, which were being broadcast around the world. the ceremony on the balcony was marked with a special fly—past to celebrate the queen's 70 years on the throne. prince andrew will miss tomorrow's service of thanksgiving at st paul's cathedral after testing positive for covid. and i'm katty kay live from buckingham palace,
