it's set to be a chaotic time if you are travelling by rail at all next week. three 24—hour strikes planned across the week on tuesday, thursday, and saturday with strikes on the london underground going ahead on tuesday, as well. for those who have plans to go on holiday by rail, or indeed go to work, the strikes are notjust disruptive, they�* re costly. i think it's just down to greed, isn't it? the government put in, what is it, £16 billion of our money to keep the railways running during the pandemic, and now they're moaning because they're not getting a big enough pay increase. my sister is having cancer treatment in london. that's affecting her treatment next week due to the strike, and she is having to stay in a hotel. everyone deserves fair terms i and conditions and it will impact so many people, especially- post—covid and with petrol prices going up, the daily commute will be
that bit harder for everybody. - the rmt union says a dispute is overjob cuts and a pay rise to mitigate the soaring cost of living for top industry is under pressure to save money because of falling passenger numbers and rail bosses insist reform is needed but it is passengers that will feel the brunt. lots of people will work from home, which we've all, most of us who can, have become accustomed to that over the past few years. so, it could be that it doesn't bite those people quite so much as it would have done in previous years. but for more of the leisure and travel events — you know, glastonbury�*s often mentioned as being one of the big events that's happening next week — the reality is that people willjust have to find another way to travel. the department for transport told the bbc that they are hugely disappointed and felt the strikes were premature and are urging the rmt to reconsider. but with no compromise in sight for the time being, it's set to be a stressful seven days ahead for passengers. vishala sri—pathma, bbc news.
some asylum seekers who arrive in the uk in small boats or on the back of lorries could be electronically tagged under a new home office trial. the prime minister says it's important to "make sure asylum seekers can't just vanish into the rest of the country". critics say the plan treats those fleeing persecution as criminals. our political correspondent damian grammaticas reports. after the plane, chartered at a cost of several hundred thousand pounds to take asylum seekers to rwanda could not leave this week, the legality of the government's policy of deporting those seeking protection here must now be decided by british courts. so, in the meantime, some of those who were due to be on board may be part of this trial and be electronically tagged while their cases are decided. where people come here illegally, where they break the law, it's important that we make that distinction. that's what we're doing
with our rwanda policy, that's what we are doing with making sure that asylum seekers can'tjust vanish into the rest of the country. it's not illegal to seek asylum, but the government is under pressure to stop the channel crossings and tagging rather than detaining some whose immigration cases are being decided has been impossible for several years. ——are being decided has been under consideration for several years. the home office says it could be used in cases where there may be an increased risk of absconding and less incentive to comply with any conditions of immigration bail. i think that the government is chasing headlines. what i want is a serious response, or a serious response, because nobody wants these journeys across the channel to be made, these perilousjourneys. everybody wants to clamp down on the gangs _ that requires grown—up work with the french authorities and upstream work to actually tackle these gangs. you don't do that if you are a government that's asking the national crime agency to make cuts. tagging and monitoring is used for people subject to court or prison orders. those who work with refugees say
extending it to them is cruel and amounts to treating those who come seeking a welcome as criminals. actually, this is a diversion tacticj from the government's complete failure to run the asylum system in an orderly fashion. _ at the moment, we have utter chaos. we have over 100,000 people in the asylum system, - waiting for a decision. we have more than 70,000 waiting over six months - and tens of thousands waiting over a year, . some even waiting up to five years. so, refugee groups say in the face of the huge issues with the asylum system, tagging is a gimmick and no other western nation does it. the numbers involved in the trial is likely to be small. damian grammaticas, bbc news. and enver solomon from the refugee council who you saw there in that report told us earlier what he makes of the plans let's think about who these people are. these are people that are fled places like afghanistan. the majority of people coming across the channel in the first three months of this year were from afghanistan. we know about the taliban, the atrocities being committed there,
the attack on people's human rights, the attack on people's human rights, the attack on women's rights. they will now potentially be tagged, be treated as a criminal simply because they had to flee the persecution in afghanistan to seek safety in the uk. i think this is a nasty, callous, cruel way to treat people who through no fault of their own have had to flee for their lives to try and find a country that should be welcoming. try and find a country that should be welcoming-— try and find a country that should be welcominu. ., ., , . be welcoming. now, the home office sa s that be welcoming. now, the home office says that this — be welcoming. now, the home office says that this tagging _ be welcoming. now, the home office says that this tagging will _ be welcoming. now, the home office says that this tagging will make - be welcoming. now, the home office says that this tagging will make it - says that this tagging will make it easier to maintain contact with asylum seekers that reach the uk and other kinds be dealt with more effectively. as it stands, is it difficult to maintain regular contact and is there a way to do that imposes those claims that doesn't involve tagging?- that imposes those claims that doesn't involve tagging? there are man wa s doesn't involve tagging? there are many ways and _ doesn't involve tagging? there are many ways and there _ doesn't involve tagging? there are many ways and there is _ doesn't involve tagging? there are many ways and there is no - doesn't involve tagging? there are many ways and there is no need i doesn't involve tagging? there are many ways and there is no need to tag people. actually this is a diversion from the government's
complete failure to run the asylum system in an orderly fashion. at the moment we have utter chaos and in the asylum see stem. we have tens of thousands waiting over five years. that is nothing to do with whether the home of his can keep in contact with people. the hummus is failing to actually make regular contact with people simply because it is running a system that is so broken and instead of trying to come up with gimmicks and headlines such as tagging and treating people as criminals the government should focus on running an orderly system and do what is done in germany, for example, and make sure that decisions are made within a matter of months so that people who have a case to stay in the uk are granted protection and those that don't are supported to return to the country from which they come from. would it allow the home _ from which they come from. would it allow the home office _ from which they come from. would it allow the home office to _ from which they come from. would it allow the home office to collect -
allow the home office to collect data on people who abscond? it will allow the home _ data on people who abscond? it will allow the home office _ data on people who abscond? it will allow the home office to _ data on people who abscond? it will allow the home office to treat - allow the home office to treat people as criminals. people that abscond are individuals that you can easily maintain contact with because they have a case where, the home office. we've already had instances of inappropriate action that was challenged in court of the government sharing information via the nhs with the police so there's many, many ways that people can be tracked and kept in contact with. there's absolutely no need to tag them. no other western nation does this and they run orderly asylum systems that aren't chaotic this country. this is a headline grabbing, callous, cruel tactic by the government to cover up the fact that it's failing to run an orderly system and its failing to give people a fair hearing in a timely fashion and ensure that the country holds the un commission of refugees.
andrew solomon, chief executive of the refugee council. well, meanwhile tens of thousands of people are marching in central london right now, calling on the uk government to do more to help tackle the cost of living crisis. trade union leaders, front line workers and community organisations are among those at the demonstration, demanding what they say must be a "better deal" for workers struggling to cope. we've got tens of thousands of people coming from every nation in the uk, from all walks of working life, and they're coming together to tell the government and tight—fasted employers that enough is enough, that working people need to maintain their standard of living. they've had over a decade of real cuts and freezes to pay and they can't take any more, so it's a very simple message — that none us wants to see a country where nurses and social care workers are having to go to food banks to get by. if you earn a living, you have to work for a living, you ought to be able to achieve a fair wage.
and we'll hear from our correspondent matt graveling live with protestors on the march shortly the uk government's new �*cost of living' adviser has said businesses are "obliged" to help people hit by soaring prices. david buttress, who co—founded �*just eat,�* was appointed this week for six months. he said he would focus on convincing food shops, utility companies and the leisure industry to cut costs for consumers. our political correspondent, ione wells, has been speaking to him. talk to anyone on high streets up and down the uk, and everyone is thinking about the cost of living and what changes they can make. i've definitely cut down on fuel and eating out. being careful about how much electricity i use, but i don't think i'm cutting back that much. turning out lights and trying to - get my daughter to turn her fan off at night, and things like that. people are changing how much they buy
but can't control how much goods cost. that's something the government's new cost—of—living tsar, david buttress, wants to change. he founded the delivery chain just eat, but will now have a desk here at the heart of government. but he says his aims are not to change government policy, but to make food, utilities and leisure companies cut their costs to help consumers by the time he leaves the role in the six months' time. i want to work with the bigger industries to make sure that we help people to soften the blow of that, to make their money go further. if you think of all the the money that's spent on marketing and doing deals to promote some of the leisure, big activities that british people enjoy, well, let's take some of that money, let's refocus it onto what really matters to people, which is making prices more competitive. he's not always been a fan of the government, tweeting in the past that decades of neglect by the conservatives have been a contributing factor to child poverty.
so how does he feel about advising them now? you have to bear in mind that i had never met any of the team at number ten, least of all, obviously, the prime minister, and i think it says everything about this government and the prime minister, that, actually, they've put someone like me in place who really cares about it and wants to make a big impact in this area. what's not clear is how he will get businesses onboard and whether they will ask for anything from government in return. his ideas have been welcomed by the trades union congress, but they argue price cuts won't be enough without wages rising. anything that helps hard—pressed families, that keeps down costs is going to be welcomed, but i'm afraid these comments ignore the reality that our cost—of—living crisis is actually a wages crisis. we've had the biggest squeeze on wages in this country for 200 years. real wages are well below where they were in 2008 in real terms. and so what we need to see from governments and also from employers is what they're going to going to do to boost the money in peoples' pockets, to boost wages and to give britain a pay rise it really needs and deserves.
it's been extremely difficult... the government has announced a package of support, including a £400 discount on all energy bills in october, and payments of £650 on people on means—tested benefits. but the new advisor argues it's now time for the private sector to come to the table. ione wells, bbc news. our correspondent matt gravelling is with protesters in central london. thousands of people are much the london starting at portland place at about 12 o'clock and ending up here in parliament square in response to that rising prices. now, this has been organised by the tuc union who have basically said this is the biggest squeeze on earnings for workers in modern history. the people here today are union leaders and you've also got community organisations but, in reality, this isjust

militants have attacked a sikh place of worship in the afghan capital kabul. two people are said to have been killed. the attackers threw hand grenades at the building but the taliban say a car bomb detonated before reaching the temple. the attack is said to be over now, with the authorities carrying out a clearance operation. here's the latest from our correspondent secunder kermani who is in kabul. well, the attack began around 6.30 in the morning, local time, and it seems the assailants tried to force their way into the compound housing this gurdwara, or sikh temple, using hand grenades. and according to taliban officials, guards then opened fire on the assailants, forcing them to detonate a car bomb they had prepared before it reached its target, but that still sent huge plumes of black smoke into the sky and there were, for a number of hours, the sound of gunfire and further explosions coming from the site. around an hour ago, though, the taliban said that they'd fully completed a
clearance operation of the site. all the assailants had been killed. as you say, from the information they've released there were two casualties, one sikh civilian, an elderly man — it appears he was praying at the time, according to some reports, inside the gurdwara — and one member of the taliban security forces who was assisting in the operation tackling the militants. as to who's responsible, there's been no claim so far, but all suspicion will be that it's the work of the local branch of the islamic state group. they've repeatedly targeted afghanistan's tiny sikh community in the past, too — another attack on a temple, a gurdwara, back in 2020, a suicide bombing in the eastern city of jalalabad back in 2018, as well. police in brazil have confirmed that a body found buried in the amazon is that of the missing british journalist dom phillips. a second body — believed to be his travelling companion bruno pereira — is still being examined. mr phillip's sister said he was a "leading light in journalism".katy watson reports. the grim news confirmed — dom phillips' family can now, in the words of his wife, ale, say goodbye to him with love. these are the two men as their friends and family want to remember them —
dom phillips, a passionate journalist writing a book on saving the amazon. his travelling companion, bruno pereira, i think he was a leading light in journalism. he was shining a light on the area which is a global problem and i would like to see any changes that we can make as a positive outcome of a tragedy. his travelling companion, bruno pereira, was an indigenous expert who knew the community so well and was loved by so many here. the authorities are still trying to establish whether the human remains also include those of bruno pereira. suspect amarildo da costa de oliveira confessed to the crime and lead the search teams to the place he buried the two men. authorities are also looking for a third suspect, jeferson da silva lima. they say he's currently on the run. the area where the two men
disappeared is vast, remote and lawless. on the border with colombia and peru, there are illegal fishermen and poachers and drug trafficking, too. indeed, bruno's work trying to protect the indigenous communities from illegal activities made him enemies. he'd been threatened in the past because of his work. police, though, say the investigation suggests the suspects acted alone, not with a criminal organisation behind them. but, that was rejected by univaja, the association of indigenous communities, which had taken part in the search and had been calling for more to be done to find their friend bruno and his travel companion, dom. they believe it was a crime planned in detail. katy watson, bbc news. a new device designed for people living with tourette syndrome is being described as a "game—changer" by campaigners. the wearable gadget aims to reduce the involuntary sounds and movements, known as tics, by intercepting signals to the brain. it's currently being tested in a uk—wide clinical trial. here's navtej johal.
13—year—old milo loves drumming, drama and defeating his enemies in video games. four years ago, he was diagnosed with tourette's syndrome. his mum says at the time she was devastated. you sort of go through a period of, sort of...grief, if i'm honest. you know, you get a diagnosis that you don't know much about — i didn't know anything about it. and, you know, you're scared and you're worried and you're like, "what's going to happen?" when i was diagnosed, ithought, "oh, god, what am i going to do? "i'm going to be bullied for this." i feel like just shortly after that, i think, on that front, it doesn't change anything about, like, who you are as a person and your personality, so as long as you're a good person, people will be nice to you. tourette's is a neurological condition which usually starts in childhood and causes a person to make involuntary movements and sounds known as tics.
if i do tic, if i need to tic, i do it. otherwise, like, very shortly after, it will come on stronger and more of them. are you trying to suppress a tic right now? yeah, lam, to be honest, because when you're talking about it, this is certainly worse. not everyone is able to suppress their tics. milo and his mum are happy for us to show what his tics can look like when they've been building up without release. he says they're not painful. it's easier to do them than to hold them off. but if i'm at school or something, like, i'm not going tojust do them because that'll be embarrassing in class, and i can leave class — i have a card or i can, like, ask to go to the loo and i can do it there. although symptoms usually improve after several years, there is no cure for tourette's.
ok, so this is the - prototype device that we've built for- the clinical trial... but this little device could help to change the life of milo and the estimated more than 300,000 people in the uk with the condition. it's been developed at the university of nottingham. by stimulating that nerve - we're able to change the activity in the brain areas associated with producing tics, - so we can press the button and for a period of time . reduce the likelihood their tics are going to occur — _ without side effects, . without adverse events, without having to travel to get treatment. - so it's a massive game—changer. you! the university has now started a national trial to study the effectiveness of the device. the demand to be involved has been overwhelming. it's been extremely successful. so it's benefited probably around 70% of the people in the trial. i they have seen a marked improvement. i get emails every single day-
from all over the world from people from people asking either. can they buy the device now or can they take part in the clinical trial? i i've even had people willing to relocate from the usa, l from singapore, from australia, to the uk for the purpose - of participating in the trial. soon milo will be one ofjust 135 people to take part in the trial. the group testing the device will use it daily for a month, with everyone giving weekly feedback. if it works, it'll be really good because it'll mean that i can do those things i haven't been able to do before. i'll be able to experience that "childhood magic." it would be amazing. it'll be life changing for so many people, so it's brilliant to get the opportunity to be part of it. the trial will last until the end of the year, and the hope is that within a few years the device may be available for wider public use. milo says he's looking forward to hopefully playing a small part
in helping others like him. navteonhal, bbc news. for the first time, deaf people who use british sign language will be able to contact 999 through a specialised video service. the new system connects users to the police, ambulance, fire and coastguard via a remote interpreter. campaigners have called it a "breakthrough that will save lives". helena wilkinson reports. briony and her husband, andy, are both deaf. last summer, he collapsed. unable to call 999, briony drove him to a&e. interpreter: at that time, i absolutely panicked, - i just didn't know what to do. and i think if i'd had 999 bsl available back then i would've been able to get advice very quickly, i wouldn't have had the stress, i would've been able to stay calm,
i would've been able to know that help was coming to where we were, but obviously it wasn't available back then. and that drive — the drive, when i was trying to drive and watching him struggling to breathe next to me, and, obviously, i couldn't communicate with him because he couldn't sign to me — he was struggling to breathe too much. so i know now that 999 bsl is available, and it's just such a relief that deaf people aren't going to have to go through that experience that i had. 999 british sign language will, for the first time, allow deaf allow deaf people to call directly through to an emergency video—calling service, allowing them to communicate in their first language, bsl, through an interpreter. this is how the new service works. the caller connects to the 999 bsl app on their mobile or online. they press the red button to make the call. that connects them to a bsl interpreter,
who contacts a 999 operator. the conversation is then relayed. your location, please? the deaf community say it's a breakthrough. what is your emergency? the app will be an absolute life—changer. it has been years and years in the coming. deaf people have not been able to access emergency services for years directly. they've been able to do it through text relay but that means you're having to type, you know, "hello, this is the problem." you know, you can imagine doing that — and it's about 75% slower than speaking, so you can imagine trying to have an emergency situation conversation, and that's just not acceptable when you're using written english. if it's life—and—death you need to be able to click, communicate in your first language, directly, and that's what this does, so i'm so pleased to see this here now. ambulance, please. my wife is not feeling _ ambulance, please. my wife is not feeling very— ambulance, please. my wife is not feeling very well. _ the deaf community say this is one more step forward towards equality. helena wikinson, bbc news. now it's time for a look at
the weather with sarah keith lucas hello. my fresher air is now making its way south across the uk and marking that transition we have a weather front along its length. some quite heavy in thundery rain possibly this evening. heatwave conditions continue for spain and for the remainder of the weekend. still some of the very warm air sitting across the most counties of uk at the moment. cool air sits to the north and here is the weather front dividing them. don't take that weather front line, though, front dividing them. don't take that weatherfront line, though, too much as possible for where we will see the rain because shells will break out ahead of it. we are looking basically at some wet weather across much of the midlands, east anglia and southern england into the small hours so some heavy and thundery rain possible but a cooler story by the end of the lights, the likes of london where temperature stayed in the 20s else day saturday. sunday daytime some shows potentially bidding to bother that is imminent. quite a breeze from northern ireland and scotland, take the edge of the temperature is and could bring in a
