together with dash crofts, he enjoyed a string of hits in the 19705 including "summer breeze" and "diamond girl". his family described him as a "musical genius". time for a look at the weather. here's darren bett. all our weather in the week ahead is coming in from the atlantic. let me take you to the west of the uk in this area of low pressure and cloud is actually a former tropical storm which brought a lot of rain in florida over the weekend. it is not going to bring us much rain but around that area of low pressure we have had some rain and it is staggering slowly north across central and northern parts of
scotland so here it is quite a bit cooler than yesterday. following on from that it is sunshine and showers but here in yorkshire we have some very high pollen levels today. and across southern scotland the showers could be heavy and thundery likewise in the far north east of england. the highest temperatures towards the eastern side of the uk but cooler thanit eastern side of the uk but cooler than it was yesterday in northern ireland. any showers that develop will decline this evening and we see patchy rain moving away from northern ireland and heading into northern england and north wales but largely dying out. clear skies for more southern parts of the uk but quite a one light with temperatures typically ten or 12i quite a one light with temperatures typically ten or 12 i mentioned high pollen levels today in yorkshire but we will see high levels more widely across england tomorrow as it is the peak of the grass pollen season for the post up some sunshine for more southern areas, some cloud for the
north with some showers that do fade away and for the eastern side of uk and much of scotland it should be fine with some sunshine. further west the cloud increases and light and patchy rain. a little bit cooler in places although warmer than today in places although warmer than today in the sunshine in scotland. this is the tropical storm alex and it is unusual to have this close to the uk at this time of the year. it is just going to give us a glancing blow with not much rain. some stronger wind and some increasingly heavy and frequent showers coming into western scotland and northern ireland on friday. but further south across england and wales many places dry with sunshine and quite warm air so even where it is wet in glasgow still 18 degrees. over the weekend the low pressure is going to check to the north of the uk. further
south we have high pressure so what that means is for many northern areas it is going to be windy over the weekend with some wet weather and showers through scotland. further south across england and wales the wind will be lighter and it should feel quite warm in the sunshine. a reminder of our top story... parliament in his first appearance at the dispatch box since winning a vote of confidence. 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. hi, good afternoon. the six—time major champion phil mickelson says he shouldn't be banned from golf�*s pga tour, for signing up to play in the new

that is all your support for now. thank you, often. you are watching bbc news and i amjane hill. thank you, often. you are watching bbc news and i am jane hill. let's take a look at some of the story is making the news this lunchtime and let's start with a topic which is frankly worrying a lot of people in different points of the country. railway workers planning those three days of strikes later this month with a dispute about pay and jobs. people working for 13 train companies are planning to take action and workers at network rail, which maintains the railways throughout the country have also voted to strike. the impact would be felt everywhere, really, certainly across england, scotland and wales and you would probably know the dates they are from june the 21st onwards so they coincide with some very big events, including test cricket, glastonbury and much more
besides. let's talk to the managing director of network rail is north—west and central region and he is the chief negotiator in this current dispute. a very good afternoon to you. how much optimism do you have about talks which we know are planned? what prospect of getting some change here of not putting the british public through this? ., , ., ., , , this? that is our absolute number one priority- _ this? that is our absolute number one priority. the _ this? that is our absolute number one priority. the last _ this? that is our absolute number one priority. the last thing - this? that is our absolute number one priority. the last thing our . one priority. the last thing our industry needs now after the recovery from covid is or would be to disrupt confidence and trust in the rail industry through strike action so that is a clear priority we have and also a bad thing for our staff as well so i'm really hopeful we can find a way through this. are we can find a way through this. are there any of— we can find a way through this. are there any of the specifics that you can actually rebut the or entity, for example it says that 3000 maintenance jobs would be cut out of
11000 and says that the union says that has safety implications. i5 that has safety implications. is that has safety implications. is that accurate or fair? let's be really clear, i've been working for 30 years for the railways and throughout that we have always focused on safety for passengers and our employees. nothing is going to change that. we wouldn't do anything to make anything less safe or less reliable. what we're talking about is using technology, for example cameras on trains to spot defects, and we would do that to avoid sending people out of the tracks because that is dangerous to be standing on the track. that doesn't mean that we don't need as many people as we currently have. i don't think there is a need to make compulsory redundancies. over 1000 managers have left network rail through voluntary settlements and there is plenty of voluntary interest from people who would like to leave if we can agree the right terms. ., ~' to leave if we can agree the right terms. ., ~ ., ., ., , terms. you think that for example that if ou terms. you think that for example that if you could _ terms. you think that for example that if you could entirely - terms. you think that for example that if you could entirely deal - terms. you think that for example that if you could entirely deal withj
that if you could entirely deal with this through voluntary redundancy, whatever sort of rules were talking about but that there are enough people who would apply for this and that it can be done this way. that is absolutely _ that it can be done this way. that is absolutely our _ that it can be done this way. that is absolutely our name _ that it can be done this way. t�*isgt is absolutely our name that is my aspiration. to do that though we have to be able to negotiate and agree with the trade unions a way of implementing those changes. you can't do that unilaterally. there is a real big opportunity, i think, for those who want to go and for us as an industry to reduce our costs if we can make sure that those conversations take place. that is what we have been trying to do but we haven't managed to find a path through that but we are determined to find a way any way anyway we can. ijust wonder to find a way any way anyway we can. i just wonder whether people listening to you will think that the language you are using suggests there is, frankly, not that much hope of certainly the first strike being called off. i mean, it is a couple of weeks away and you tell me if i'm wrong, i would love to be wrong, any travelling member of the public would love this to be called
off, but you are saying very different things to what the union is saying, it seems to me. do think there is any scope?— there is any scope? there is scope and to do that _ there is any scope? there is scope and to do that we _ there is any scope? there is scope and to do that we have _ there is any scope? there is scope and to do that we have to - there is any scope? there is scope and to do that we have to have - there is any scope? there is scope j and to do that we have to have the conversations and up until monday this week we are having positive conversations with the union and we are expecting those conversations to continue so something of a surprise yesterday that in light of the conversations we've been having that actually the strike dates were announced in the relatively short window because it doesn't leave very much time, as you rightly say. me and my colleagues, we get a bed to run railway for passengers and freight users are not able strike action so we want to be out of the service and if we can find a way through this, we will, but it will require both parties to have and continue to engage in constructive conversations. share continue to engage in constructive conversations.— continue to engage in constructive conversations. are we in a situation where travel _ conversations. are we in a situation where travel is _
conversations. are we in a situation where travel is changing _ conversations. are we in a situation where travel is changing so - conversations. are we in a situation where travel is changing so much i where travel is changing so much because of the pandemic and what you are talking about is a reaction to the pandemic and to changing travel patterns among the public and to what extent is that being used as a useful cover to change things structurally? it useful cover to change things structurally?— useful cover to change things structurally? it is not a cover, travel patterns _ structurally? it is not a cover, travel patterns have - structurally? it is not a cover, travel patterns have changed | structurally? it is not a cover, . travel patterns have changed and structurally? it is not a cover, - travel patterns have changed and it is a fact unfortunately. that doesn't mean that the revenue that the rail industry earns through trial companies and network rail is significantly lower, it is still a £2 billion per year lower than it was before covid and a £2 billion has to be filled in some way, doesn't it? on top of that, there is a quote request for pay rises. it is entirely understandable that our colleagues want a pay rise because of the cost of living, but the only way we can do that in the financial environment we have currently is if we are really constructive and creative in finding ways of reducing waste and our costs so that we can create the funds that are necessary
for pay. that is what we want to do, but also putting in the railway a more efficient and safe structure. thank you for now. that was the director of network rails north—west and central region and he probably —— you probably know that the first strike is scheduled, according to the rmt for the 21st ofjune so we will see what progress is made before then. let's turn to berlin because x or because one person has been killed, and a number of others have been of others have been injured, after a car drove into a crowd of people in the german capital, berlin. here are the latest pictures from the scene where police say police say they have detained a man who is 29 years old and they say he
is the driver but they still don't know whether he was acting deliberately. they say the 29—year—old has dual german— armenian citizenship and lives in berlin. the city was initially apprehended by passers—by. the scene of this incident is close to the side of the christmas market terrorist attack of 2016. the actor and singerjohn barrowman was at the scene and posted this on social media. it is really pretty bad, guys. there is all of the emergency services that are trying to help victims and people. there's a lot of people walking with limps and injuries. the car came down onto the pavement. we had dinner in that restaurant last night. the car came down onto the pavement,
then it's come onto the road over there, it has hit somebody and then has gone down the road and come back onto the pavement down that, done that way and come back onto the pavement and gone through a bunch of people, gone through the photograph that i posted of a cafe and then right into a storefront window. but it... the police presence is unbelievable, they are. ..clearing out the area but it was cordoned off. i heard the bang in the crash when i was, we were in a store and we came out and we saw the carnage. and there is helicopters coming in now to airlift people. that is whatjohn barrowman posted on social media after the incident. well, we spoke tojohn barrowman and his husband scott gill, they described what they saw. after we had heard a noise, we were in an uniqlo store, which
was across from the final point of the car, you know, going into a storefront. it was about 10.30 that i heard the initial noise. we came out of the store and we saw a car that had careened through a cafe area and into a storefront window, and we walked around thinking it wasjust — excuse me — thinking that it was just a car accident. and we saw that the person in the car had been pulled out. there was another person on the ground and we thought it was a car crash. so we turned and started walking down the street, and it wasn't until we got midway down the street that we saw the dead body in the middle of the road, and we then kept walking and we then... the police just flew into the area, all the emergency services and where we then crossed off the street, back onto the pavement,
it was in front of a levi's store and a bank where we were going to go change money. at that point, there was a... all the emergency services came into that area because there was multiple people on the ground, and i'm sure that's where the life—threatening injuries happened, because i saw somebody being resuscitated, i saw somebody being literally thrown onto a stretcher and put into an ambulance. there were multiple bodies on the ground there. some people getting up and limping away. it was from... it was like a two city—block... about 300 meters total. yeah, and you could see where the car had come onto the pavement, barreled through people, then gone on to the street where it hit the person on the road and killed them, and then barrelled back onto the pavement and then went into the storefront after going through the cafe area.
it must have been really distressing for both of you to have witnessed, but just what we've been showing now, john, is the images from the video you tweeted earlier. can you just talk us through that? well, i can't really see what you're. .. because we have a black screen, we can't see. you weren't able to show us what you're showing, however, at that point, i was... i know there was one point in the video, my friend — ironically, mikey kay, who is an ex—military guy — and he rang me just to say hello and i told him what was happening, and he said, "look," immediately, he said, "get by a tree "or get by something that puts something big between you "if there's a secondary attack." so i was doing my video from the tree, and scott was over next to me doing some videoing of some of it, taking photographs, because we figured — i mean, you know, no—one was... there were no cameras, there was no nothing there, so we figured to document something of it, but we had no idea that... how horrific it was and just how
those poor people were just going about their daily business. and the night before, we had eaten right at that restaurant on that corner. right at the corner across the pavement. right where the car went across the pavement, and we found out later — we didn't know this at the time, nor when the incident happened — but that is the exact same place where the christmas marketjust opposite...what was it called? breitscheidplatz. and that was exactly where the christmas market crashed, because i said to scott walking home last night, look at all these big, huge bollards that are on the road, on the pavement to stop someone careening through the crowd. and then, ironically, just by the gentleman, the person who was on the ground passed away. there was a bob, one of those bollards which had been exploded huge bollards that are on the road, on the pavement to stop someone because the car had careened right through it. so filled with sand,
it clearly didn't do any difference. the health secretary, savid javid, has said a video showing long waits at the princess alexandra hospital in harlow is �*not what anyone wants to see'. patients in the emergency department on monday night were told they could face a wait of up to 13 hours. jasmine gardiner reports there are 90 patients waiting to be seen. , , ., _ ., seen. this is the video filmed by a atient seen. this is the video filmed by a patient on — seen. this is the video filmed by a patient on monday _ seen. this is the video filmed by a patient on monday night _ seen. this is the video filmed by a patient on monday night showing l seen. this is the video filmed by a | patient on monday night showing a nurse explaining the huge demand in the emergency department. population growth means harlow is earmarked for a new hospital, but not for six years. this morning, on bbc breakfast, the health secretary was play the clip and says that is not a anybody wants to see. we

scotland could be thundery. though showers will fade away this evening, we will see this patchy rain moving across northern ireland, over the irish sea and into northern parts of england and north wales. but a largely dying out. some clearer skies to the south and quite a mild night. temperatures around 10—12 celsius. the first signs of some rain in the far south—west out by the end of the night. looking at the pollen levels for tomorrow. i mention they were very high in yorkshire today, but we have very high levels more widely across england tomorrow. it's the peak of the grass pollen season. there will be sunshine around, we have sunshine running through the east through the morning across scotland and perhaps north east england. those will tend to move away. sunny spells developing but then we have this cloud of patchy and mostly light rain coming into many western areas, a bit damp and misty towards south wales and the south—west of england where temperatures will be a bit more lower than today. but into eastern parts of england and scotland does temperatures will be into the low 20s. now, this is ex—tropical storm alex and that is going to get pushed to the north—west of the uk. strongest winds around and that will be on the far north—west of the country. there won't be much rain as we have seen with that.
still some dampness and cloud left in the south—east of england for a while, but otherwise, we will get some sunshine on friday and a few showers, most those, really, towards northern ireland and into scotland, some of them heavy, driven on by some rather strong and gusty winds as well, but it is quite warm air and temperatures 18 degrees in glasgow and could make 23 in lincolnshire and across norfolk as well. there is our area of low pressure, that ex—tropical storm and over the weekend, it will track to the north of scotland, higher pressure to the south of the uk, so it will be windier across northern areas and we will find showers around as well, mainly in scotland, further in the south of the uk it should be dry with lighter winds and it will feel warmer with some sunshine.
