will simply be, we have had the idea will simply be, we have had to cancel your holiday flight and we will offer you another one. you have months to organise that, which is a bit better. it means like anyone like me who is waiting for the usual last—minute bargains will be stuck, i'm afraid. we have seen chaos over easter, chaos at the start of half term at the end of half term. i think the airlines now will be looking to manage that sensibly during the summer. i think the government people are aware of their rights when these things go wrong. thank ou ve when these things go wrong. thank you very much. _ when these things go wrong. thank you very much, simon. _ now it's time for a look at the weather with matt. the sunshine continues for much of scotland and northern ireland through the afternoon. it stays on the soggy site. the far north will stay dry. parts of wales as well and heavy showers to fit south wales and
south—west england. the odd isolated shower elsewhere but skies will brighten a bit, i9 shower elsewhere but skies will brighten a bit, 19 in the south—east. highest temperatures western scotland at our northern ireland 20—22. this evening and overnight, certainly this evening showers possible across southern counties of england ten the day, clearing through to tomorrow morning, heavy rain in northern england which pictures towards east anglia. clearest conditions across scotland and wales. monday itself, outbreaks of rain drizzled across eastern parts of england, brisk and rather chilly north— north—easterly wind easing through the day. mostly a dry day on monday, a few showers in the south and wales but in the sunshine starting to feel a touch warmer again. hello, this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, first the headlines.
a platinum party at the palace to celebrate an historic 70—year reign. prince charles pays a heartfelt tribute to �*mummy�* you continue to make history. you laugh and cry with us. and most importantly, you have been there for us for these 70 years. the nation's favourite bear kicked off the concert with a private audience with the queen, marmalade and all. happyjubilee, ma'am. and thank you. for everything. that's very kind. the final day ofjubilee celebrations will end with a huge pageant near buckingham palace later. street parties are also set to be held across the uk in what is being called the big jubilee lunch. explosions shake kyiv, in the first russian assault on ukraine's capital for weeks.
meanwhile, closer to home, the welsh national football team will take on the ukraine side in a world cup qualifier later today. sport and for a full round—up, from the bbc sport centre, here's gavin. good morning. it's set to be a tense day at lord's, england need just 61 runs, to win the first test match against new zealand. half—centuries from ben stokes and joe root have given england hope they can start head coach brendon mccullum's reign with a victory, asjoe wilson reports. stuart broad urged england to believe and then he made things happen. that was daryl mitchell, dismissed for 108, and suddenly, wickets seemed to be falling with every delivery. actually, they were. broad on one of his charges. and soon, new zealand were 285 all out, which meant if england could score 277 in their second innings, they'd win.
"if." here are three england batters, alex lees, ollie pope and then johnny bairstow, clattered. new zealand's bowlers were too good. ben stokes had made one when this happened, and then this was spotted. colin de grandhomme overstepped. no ball. captain, you're back in. so could stokes make the most of his reprieve? england were depending on him and he was delivering, but here comes a ball he could not avoid, caught for sa and this time definitely out. but what about the former captain? crucially for england, joe root is 77 not out. five down and 61 to win. with root, england sure have hope. joe wilson, bbc news, lords. today sees one of the most important football matches in the history of both wales and ukraine. the two teams meet in cardiff, to play off for a place at this year's fifa world cup in qatar. wales are looking to reach their first world cup since 1958.
but plenty of neutrals will be backing ukraine, as they aim to boost their war—torn country after their semifinal win in scotland. gareth bale is expected to lead wales out and he'll put all that to one side once the whistle goes. we understand what an awful thing is going on in ukraine. our hearts and everything goes out to the kids, the families, the people of ukraine. and yeah, we have all felt awful during this time and not really been able to do too much, but it's a game of football. football is on the line and we want to win and that's the only thing. england players were jeered when they took a knee before their nations league defeat in hungary, despite the crowd being mostly children. hungary were supposed to be playing the game behind closed doors as punishment for discriminatory behaviour by fans. jeering was clearly audible, when the players made the anti—racist gesture just before kick—off. the only goal of the game came from dominik szoboszlai's second half penalty, as england made a disappointing start to their nations league campaign.
there were sort of pantomime boos when our team came out to warm up. that was different with the taking of the knee, but that felt like inherited thinking to me. and what i would say is, i hear that still in our stadiums, as well, so that's why we do it. that's why we continue to take that stand. it's a huge match for rafa nadal later. he's going for a record—extending 14th french open title when he meets casper ruud in the men's singles final. victory would take the 36—year—old to 22 grand slam titles, two clear of 20—time major winners novak djokovic and roger federer. norwegian ruud has trained at nadal�*s academy in mallorca since 2018. he isa he is a great guy and he has a great family, honestly, that's the main thing. and then as a player, of
course i respect a lot him. he did... a lot of great things the last couple of years. he is the number... which number, eight, seven in the world, so... the ranking by itself. that's all the sport for now. on the bbc news channel it's now the papers. hello and welcome to our look at what's in this morning's papers. with me is property and personal finance commentator anne ashwood. today's front pages, then. the sunday telegraph reports on a "teatime treat for the nation", as it shows a picture of her majesty with paddington bear, the surprise sketch which opened the platinum jubilee concert last
night at buckingham palace. "ma'amalade your majesty?" the same scene is on the front of the mail on sunday. the sunday times also features the queen and paddington, saying the night was a "party of a lifetime for the world's grandmother". "thank you for being there for us, mummy." the sunday express quotes prince charles'sjubilee tribute speech at the concert. the observer reflects on a long weekend of celebrations on its front page, describing the festivities as a "carnival of memory". and a picture of brian may performing on the victoria memorial monument is on the front of the sunday mirror, so, let's begin. pretty much wall—to—walljubilee celebrations. ijust pretty much wall—to—walljubilee celebrations. i just wanted pretty much wall—to—walljubilee celebrations. ijust wanted to, we were looking at the front pages and i wanted to flick through the sun on sunday because it shows pretty much

it. the young royals, wall—to—wall coverage of this. as you say, one of the standout moments was that little film with paddington and that is a great headline there on the front of the mail on sunday. just picking up the mail on sunday. just picking up the little bits from the speech that prince charles gave, the sunday express, thank you for being there for us, mummy is what they pick out as their headline. just underlining obviously she is his mother, described in another paper as the nation's grandmother, just that remainder she has been in the fabric of all of our lives as a central figure who is just so familiar to us all. most of us haven't met, but we feel like we know her. you all. most of us haven't met, but we feel like we know her.— feel like we know her. you do feel as if ou feel like we know her. you do feel as if you know _ feel like we know her. you do feel as if you know the _ feel like we know her. you do feel as if you know the queen. - feel like we know her. you do feel as if you know the queen. it's - feel like we know her. you do feel| as if you know the queen. it's true that a great deal of people actually dream about meeting the queen, but i
feel this weekend people who did not know exactly how they felt about the queen realised how much they cherish her majesty and also appreciated her wit which came through in that extraordinary little vignette with her majesty and paddington, which began proceedings, where paddington bear comes to tea with her majesty, there are some mishaps and the queen reveals to us what she keeps in that glorious handbag, that she uses to message whether she wants to move on or whether she needs now to go to another place, she keeps a marmalade sandwich. this morning i had a marmalade sandwich in commemoration of that glorious thing. hat marmalade sandwich in commemoration of that glorious thing.— of that glorious thing. not in your handbaa? of that glorious thing. not in your handbag? not— of that glorious thing. not in your handbag? not in _ of that glorious thing. not in your handbag? not in my _ of that glorious thing. not in your handbag? not in my handbag, . of that glorious thing. not in your. handbag? not in my handbag, those are very nice — handbag? not in my handbag, those are very nice handbags. _ handbag? not in my handbag, those are very nice handbags. but - handbag? not in my handbag, those are very nice handbags. but it - handbag? not in my handbag, those are very nice handbags. but it was . handbag? not in my handbag, those are very nice handbags. but it was a| are very nice handbags. but it was a really beautiful put together piece, where at the end, paddington and her majesty tapped their beautiful bone
china in time with we will rock you and it got the concert off to an unexpected start and it's that ability of the queen to continue to surprise us that i think we remember again this weekend. let’s surprise us that i think we remember again this weekend.— again this weekend. let's turn away from the jubilee _ again this weekend. let's turn away from the jubilee to _ again this weekend. let's turn away from the jubilee to real— again this weekend. let's turn away from the jubilee to real politics, - from thejubilee to real politics, which is about to kick back end with a vengeance with talk around the confidence vote potentially and the prime minister looming. the sunday times has polling that indicates the paper says the tories are facing a crushing by—election defeat as voters spurnjohnson over lies the paper says. the tories are on course for defeat in the wakefield by—election trailing labour by 20 points in a key read wall seat that could help determine whether boris johnson survives as prime minister in the first public poll and the contest the conservative vote has collapsed to just 28% down 19.3
points on the 2019 general election whenjohnson won an 80 seat majority by targeting northern working—class seats and labour's traditional heartlands. it seats and labour's traditional heartlands— seats and labour's traditional heartlands. , ., heartlands. it is back to life, back to reality moment _ heartlands. it is back to life, back to reality moment when - heartlands. it is back to life, back to reality moment when we - heartlands. it is back to life, back - to reality moment when we tomorrow it seems as if there have been as many as 67 letters of no confidence going against the prime minister, meaning that there will could be a vote triggered on his leadership, either as early as this week, we ready for that? i don't feel that, i want something to come down from the festivities of the jubilee weekend, but possibly after these key by—elections which are coming up on the 23rd in tiverton and honiton, but here as the sunday times is writing about, in wakefield, where there was i think about a majority of the conservatives about three have thousands and it looks as if that's going to be overturned, which could be the key for the mps to move
against borisjohnson and elsewhere in the sunday times, these mps are called the most perfidious electorate in the world and it seems as if because there is no tribal commitment to boris, they may be more ready than they were earlier in the year to overturn him. the observer _ the year to overturn him. the observer has _ the year to overturn him. the observer has an _ the year to overturn him. the observer has an article written by the shadow secretary digital culture media and sport and it says that labour is now the true party of patriotism. tell us about that one. very, very interesting piece. referring to the perception during the carbon era that the labour party was not patriotic. this is a lucy powell, the shadow secretary for culture, essentially aligning labour very, very clearly with patriotism and with institutions such as the bbc and saying that it
differentiates them from the conservatives whom they claim are not sufficiently patriotically and committed to the institutions that in which we all have faith. this is pretty key because this might cause some people who were about to vote at the elections to think, a vote for labour is a vote for britain and we have all got a slightly deeper sense of nation after thisjubilee bank holiday weekend, where that will take us, whether it be transient or not, who knows but it's a very interesting intervention at this moment and again on another front page, lisa nandy, another person on the shadow front bench, talking about labour's commitment to levelling up. labour is moving its tax onto the law occupied with things we would traditionally associate with the tories such as patriotism and these huge commitments to level up britain.
there has not been the progress we could have expected. the there has not been the progress we could have expected.— could have expected. the travel chaos we have _ could have expected. the travel chaos we have been _ could have expected. the travel chaos we have been talking - could have expected. the travel i chaos we have been talking about this morning seems potentially 10,000 brits are stranded abroad as a result of cancelled flights. the sunday times says heathrow orders airlines to ditch a third of passengers, they say that more flights have to be cancelled, airlines have to cut by one third the number of passengers flying by terminals at certain times until the 3rd ofjuly warning that without a reduction in demand the operation would not be considered safe. something obviously causing real difficulty for people right now and it looks like it will go on.- it looks like it will go on. people will be watching _ it looks like it will go on. people will be watching this _ it looks like it will go on. people will be watching this in - it looks like it will go on. people will be watching this in airports l will be watching this in airports thinking are we ever going to take off and it seems as if heathrow has decided to act as it did at the time of the icelandic volcano and
radically cut down the numbers of flights and heathrow terminal five between 5am and 6pm there will be cuts of about, huge cuts and meanwhile, one third for the whole of the airport, that's going to cause more chaos. it would also bring up the cost of flights which made it her people from booking and thus lessen some of the pressure, but this is another looming row the government needs to cope with because the government has been accused of being insufficiently flexible where the government says the travel industry overreached itself promoting holidays without taking the trouble to employ people that it needs for these jobs. such is the chaos in airports, if you were thinking about taking a job in the airline industry at any kind of role, you would not be that keen because who wants to put themselves up because who wants to put themselves up to be shouted at by an i rate
public in an airport when their luggage has not arrived and their flight has been cancelled? still. flight has been cancelled? still, the blame game _ flight has been cancelled? still, the blame game going - flight has been cancelled? still, the blame game going on - flight has been cancelled? still, the blame game going on about why things have come to this. the observer says the minister was warned that staff crisis would lead to travel chaos according to the aviation union, saying the aviation minister was warned injanuary aviation union, saying the aviation minister was warned in january that this sort of chaos was inevitable. there was a telephone call apparently with the aviation unions in late january in which he was told the industry would not be able to cope with higher demand unless it receives help to offset chronic staff shortages.— receives help to offset chronic staff shortages. this is a really interesting _ staff shortages. this is a really interesting story, _ staff shortages. this is a really interesting story, the - staff shortages. this is a really interesting story, the aviation | interesting story, the aviation minister whom we have mostly had grant shapps, the transport secretary of state during all of this, it seems the focus is turning on these conversations that were had with the minister saying that once
people start to travel again, the airports will not be also cut but the government was not contention would be that the industry was helped by for low payments and did not start early enough to recruit. quite often, people at the top of business will say that the time to take action is before you see the light at the end of the tunnel. that is when you need to take action and some airlines actually did try to, did start recruiting, but the industry and the airports did not start and now of course they face huge employment checks in trying to get new people. but this is another thing that is going to predispose people to really feel that the government needs to get a grip. 0ur prime minister was described by one of his predecessors, the greased piglet, the man who is always able to get out of any mess. the test of that ability is going to be in the next few weeks when he tries to face
down his mps and sort out the things that people really worry about, people who have not been away for two years, want to get on a site and have some certainty to be able to do so and do so at a reasonable price. they feel as if they paid by the rules and is now the industry not only the travel industry and other sectors should be ready to respond to demand. sectors should be ready to respond to demand-— to demand. thank you very much. en'o the to demand. thank you very much. enjoy the rest _ to demand. thank you very much. enjoy the rest of _ to demand. thank you very much. enjoy the rest of your _ to demand. thank you very much. enjoy the rest of your sunday. - to demand. thank you very much. | enjoy the rest of your sunday. that is at work the papers for now. we're going back to the platinumjubilee now, and as we've been hearing the queen wasn't well enough to attend the epsom derby yesterday. it's only the fifth derby she's missed in her 70—year reign. mike bushell has been looking back at majesty's long relationship with the sport, during the last seven decades.
such is her majesty's love of racing that even on the day of her coronation, the fitness of her first ever derby horse as queen was uppermost in her mind. the morning of the coronation, someone said, how are you? she said, "it's all right. "i've just heard from the trainer and aureole is fine this morning." it was high in her thoughts. archive: and now, to watch the coronation derby, - comes her majesty the queen. and just four days later, in the 1953 derby, the nation was backing aureole to provide an end to coronation week as 750,000 fans gathered on epsom down. even the commentators were caught up in coronation derby fever. archive: feel like a snack before getting down to business? - real slippery eels, they're lovely! now aureole moves up to take second... in the end aureole had to settle for second, but the world had been awakened to the queen's passion for racing. the queen: aureole's - always been an independent and frankly naughty character. and her majesty's love, influence and impact on the sport would continue to grow over 70
years, right up to today, whether winning or losing. we have had, for the last 70 years, a queen whose private passion has| been horse racing and whose interest has been in actually breeding racehorses. she now has more horses than she's ever had. it makes the world look in at horse racing on a different level. - she gives it respectability. when you talk to her about her- horses, she can remember exactly when everything was injured, or was it back, when it - was hurt, which foal iti had and when it had it. amazing knowledge. you can see her when she gets with racing people. her shoulders drop and she relaxes, and she chats away. from the royal box up there, her majesty has witnessed all but four derbies throughout her reign over the decades, and that includes missing the last two due to the pandemic. but despite owning the winners of over 1,000 races in british
racing, her majesty has never enjoyed success on this famous course in the most prestigious flat race of them all, the derby. so, while this trophy has so far eluded her majesty, she has made history and celebrated victory in other famous races. the first reigning monarch to win the gold cup at ascot in 2013, when estimate triumphed, lifting the trophy she was there to present. and in her silverjubilee year in 1977, her horse dunfermline was victorious in the other big epsom race, the oaks stakes, with willie carson wearing the royal silks. that was unbelievable. it's still possibly my greatest moment in racing, winning the silverjubilee in silverjubilee week. it's a fairy tale for the queen, a fairy tale for me, but we thought it wouldn't happen, because we thought we were asking too much. thejourney home that night, i don't remember. i floated.
when you put the colours on, you know, you feel better. the chest comes out, you come up more upright. you feel as though you've grown. that's how you feel! but it's not about winning for her majesty. it's about the journey for her horses. she never moans at herjockeys if they lose, and can be full of praise when they win. just ask hayley turner, who rode the same royal winner two years running at newbury. so, we're out on the podium and she's presenting me with my prize, just holding it, getting the photo, she goes, "0h, we've done this before, haven't we ? " i said "yes, ma'am — you should pay me a retainer." and she looked at me...and went "0h!" and it was like five seconds of — iwas like, "oh, i've pushed my luck here." it was fine, then. it's nice how much she cares about horses. i'm lucky that i get to chat to her about that, with someone that shares that it me. her influence and love for the sport and this day is stronger than ever.
last year, she ran more horses- and won more races than any other time in her 70—year reign. the queen's contribution has been. greater than anyone before or since. now it's time for a look at the weather with matt. hello. it is certainly a mixed picture out there for the last day of the platinum jubilee weekend. the dry, sunny weather through the rest of today continues for much of scotland and northern ireland. england and wales, though, still plenty of cloud around and for some of you, rain will be there or thereabouts all day long. some of the more persistent rain will be across parts of northern england, not wales, but easing relative to this morning. there will be some drier moments, quite misty here. south of that, a few lighter showers around, though, some heavy ones developing across wales and the south—west, as we go through into the afternoon.
some brighter breaks, but as i said, the best of those, west cumbria, into scotland, northern ireland, highs of 22 in western scotland. feeling much cooler, though, northern england and the midlands. it is of course the platinum pageant later and we are keeping fingers crossed, it is looking optimistic that during the pageant itself, things should be dry, but there will still be some showers, especially later this afternoon and evening, and that is as this line of thunderstorms develop, wales, south—west, through towards parts of the south—east. away from that, the rain turns heavier this evening across northern england for a time, and then slides its way back towards east anglia and lincolnshire. driest weather and clearest conditions tonight, to the north and west of the uk, where it will be another cool night, temperatures down into mid single figures for some as we start monday morning. but of course, monday, the return to school, return to work for many of you, we have still got the remnants of today's rain, this area of low pressure lingering across eastern areas to begin with. it is creeping away, but brings a bit of a damp start across some eastern counties of england.
quite windy here, quite cool as well, but away from that, a lot more dry weather on monday, a brighter day for england and wales. even though there is more cloud and certainly cloudier for northern ireland. sunniest across scotland, a few showers later through wales, southern england, more especially towards devon and cornwall and the channel islands. still cool down those eastern coasts, temperatures creeping up, though, for many, as we go into tuesday. winds will be lighter, a dry, bright, sunny start for the most part, any morning mist and fog clearing. northern ireland, wales, southern parts of england still the chance of one or two showers, but as you can see, temperatures rising. most notably across eastern counties of england after a cool few days we have lost that easterly wind. as for the rest of the week, mid—week onwards, well, it is low pressure in the atlantic dominating things. that is going to throw weather fronts our way, bringing spells of wet and windy weather at times, some of that will coincide with night—time, so it does mean there will still be some dry and bright weather and when the sun is out, it should feel reasonably pleasant. temperatures around average for this stage injune. bye for now.
i'm annita mcveigh outside buckingham palace, where the queen's platinum jubilee celebration continue. # good times never seemed so good #. a platinum party at the palace to celebrate an historic 70—year reign. prince charles pays a heartfelt tribute to "mummy". you continue to make history. you laugh and cry with us and, most importantly, you have been there for us for these 70 years. the nation's favourite bear kicked off the concert with a private audience with the queen — marmalade and all. happyjubilee, ma'am.
