6:30 pm
damp in places, but cloudy and damp in places, but towards the south, we have lots of sunshine through the evening and clear skies tonight. where we had the heat island in london, 1a degrees tonight. the rest of the country will be closer to 11 or 12. tomorrow, not much to say for england and wales. it is just going to be sunshine right from the morning onwards. temperatures will be skyrocketing. but across northern ireland and scotland, often cloudy with showers. we reached 28 degrees today in the south—east. i wouldn't be surprised if we get around 30 tomorrow already. then during thursday night into friday, we will see this weatherfront approaching the north—west of the uk. this is the north—west of the uk. this is the cooler air in the atlantic that is ready to come our way. you can see this fresh atlantic air ahead of a cold front. and in that heat, coming in from the south across parts of england. so not everybody is going to get the heat. it will be a brief hot spell, but potentially
6:31 pm
reaching heatwave criteria in the south—east. but for other parts of the country, nowhere near as hot. and not many of us do like extreme temperatures. then, surprise, surprise, if you have got any plans for the weekend, it looks as though it is all going to go bang. some of that energy has to go somewhere, reeta. ., ~' , ., that energy has to go somewhere, reeta. ., ~ i. ., .,, reeta. thank you, tomasz. that was — reeta. thank you, tomasz. that was the _ reeta. thank you, tomasz. that was the sac _ reeta. thank you, tomasz. that was the bbc news - reeta. thank you, tomasz. that was the bbc news at l reeta. thank you, tomasz. i that was the bbc news at six. reeta. thank you, tomasz. - that was the bbc news at six. from the team at broadcasting house. you can keep up with the latest development is on the bbc news channel and on the website. now it is time for the news where you are. hello and welcome to sportsday. i'm sarah mulkerrins. coming up,

charges for a number of individuals and yorkshire as the ecb deals with and yorkshire as the ecb deals with a fallout from the azema rafik racism scandal. no room forformer no room for former captain steph horton. and back together at brookline, the rebels return after last week's event that fractured the world of golf. hello and welcome to sportsday. let's start with the news... let's start with that news from the world of cricket today, that the england and wales cricket board have charged a number of individuals with bringing the game into dispute. it follows the allegations of racism made by azeem rafiq
6:33 pm
while a player at yorkshire. the accused, who have not been named, could be banned orfined by the ecb and yorkshire itself has also been charged with breaching the anti—racism rules. let's cross live to headingley, where we can speak to the bbc sports editor dan roan, whojoins us now. dan, can you give us a little more on the developments today? hi, sarah. this is a significant development in what has been a long—running saga. this has cast a shadow over the whole of english cricket for well over a year. the ecb have conducted a complex investigation into the allegations of racism that yorkshire's former player first made a couple of years ago. also, the county's handling of those allegations. you'll remember that they were accused of mishandling it because they found he
6:34 pm
had indeed been found to have suffered racial harassment and bullying chose not to discipline anyone. that sparked outrage. the ecb under pressure launched an investigation of their own and they've now decided to charge a number of individuals who are not named, but also, the county as well. where this goes next is in the autumn. an independent panel will convene, and hear these cases. it's unclear how long will take, but we know that some of these allegations go back an awfully long way. it could take some time. i think today's another reminder thatjust does yorkshire want to move on and make a fresh start, this lingers over and it could be some time until they have closure. for over and it could be some time until they have closure.— they have closure. for everybody tunin: they have closure. for everybody tuning into _ they have closure. for everybody tuning into us — they have closure. for everybody tuning into us this _ they have closure. for everybody tuning into us this evening, - tuning into us this evening, this has been rumbling on for two years, so in terms of the background, how

6:36 pm
just in terms of the way people were treated, but also when it came to underrepresentation and diversity in the sport. and a lack of it when it came to both players, but also coaching staff and administrators, and i think what rafiq did was insured that a big spotlight was shown on this overall issue, not just here but across the game. the ecb found itself under huge scrutiny and a report said racism was intimate and deep rooted in the game, adding unless ecb got it in order, it should be docked public funding. this is to some extent the ecb showing it is taking it seriously and these charges do suggest they are. just seriously and these charges do suggest they are.— seriously and these charges do suggest they are. just briefly, has there been _ suggest they are. just briefly, has there been any — suggest they are. just briefly, has there been any reaction _ suggest they are. just briefly, has there been any reaction or - suggest they are. just briefly, has l there been any reaction or response today? there been any reaction or response toda ? ., , �* there been any reaction or response toda ? . , ~ ., , , today? there has. azeem rafiq issued a brief statement _ today? there has. azeem rafiq issued a brief statement in _ today? there has. azeem rafiq issued a brief statement in which _ today? there has. azeem rafiq issued a brief statement in which he - today? there has. azeem rafiq issued a brief statement in which he said - a brief statement in which he said he welcomed the news but reminded people about how painful the process
6:37 pm
has been, but he also called it necessary and said that he hoped it would mean there would be some closure from this family and other young players in the future. yorkshire had little to say. they noted the findings and made the point that some of these allegations go back. yorkshire of course our preparing. sponsors are coming back, and they have their hosting raced back. the fear will be if they're found guilty as a result, they will have points deducted and they may lose their rights again. those individuals charge, they may face bandsif individuals charge, they may face bands if found guilty. dan individuals charge, they may face bands if found guilty.— individuals charge, they may face bands if found guilty. dan roan, by the -- live —

of the fa and he's taken a keen interest. he took some time speaking to the players and watched a closed training session as well. it was really nice to see him presented with some england shirts with all three of his children's names on them. he was there to wish england women luck ahead of the arrows. 0ver women luck ahead of the arrows. over the years, he's built up quite a rapport with the players —— i have the euros —— ahead of. jill scott took prince william out, but we are told that the duke of cambridge took it in very good spirits. that was nine or ten years ago. really lovely to see him spending time with the players. leo williamson said he had asked about her well—being and her health as well because he knew the importance of all of that going into the tournament, so very lovely to see him taking the time to get to know some of the newer players as

6:44 pm
it's a success before it's even begun. so england women no doubt will be hoping to go one better than the men last summer — and, well, that run to the final feels like a long time ago for gareth southgate and england's men. last night, a humbling by hungary at the end of an international window that has left some fans wondering if the progress has stopped — with questions too for northern ireland and scotland, but not for wales after world cup qualification, joe lynskey looks at how all the home nations have fared. 0na on a tuesday night, a match that should have been straightforward, became extraordinary. flan should have been straightforward, became extraordinary.— became extraordinary. can you believe the _ became extraordinary. can you believe the score? _ became extraordinary. can you believe the score? england - became extraordinary. can you i believe the score? england were beaten - zero — believe the score? england were beaten - zero at _ believe the score? england were beaten - zero at home _ believe the score? england were beaten - zero at home by - believe the score? england were i beaten - zero at home by hungary, believe the score? england were - beaten - zero at home by hungary, a beaten — zero at home by hungary, a team ranked a0 in the world. gareth southgate's time in charge, no game has been booed quite like this. football is emotional, people pay to come and watch. they're going to give an opinion. the team weren't able to deliver tonight. my
