# how could i dance with another? # i saw her standing there.# sir paul mccartney wows glastonbury and brings on surprise guests bruce springsteen and dave grohl. hello and welcome if you're watching in the uk or around the world. there have been several large explosions in the ukrainian capital, kyiv, after apparent russian missile attacks. the city's mayor says ambulances and rescuers have been sent to the scene. the attacks come hours after president zelensky made another plea for ukraine's allies to provide air defence systems. the war will dominate a summit of g7 leaders which is getting
under way in germany and how to deal with russian aggression. anisa kadri reports. the destruction of a residential building in a russian cruise missile attack on kyiv. a number of people were pulled from the rubble, including a 7—year—old girl. officials say they're searching for her mother. translation: the building _ has been destroyed and we understand that there are people under rubble. they are alive. the rescuers are trying to get them out. there is a lot of smoke and we are doing our best to rescue them as soon as possible. meanwhile, after the fall of the ukrainian city of severodonetsk, civilians have been fleeing. ukraine says its retreat is a tactical withdrawal to fight from higher ground in neighbouring lysychansk, which has also come under heavy bombardment. severodonetsk is a significant strategic loss for ukraine and russia's biggest victory since it captured the port of mariupol.
ukraine will dominate talks between g7 leaders who are meeting in germany amid tight security. in his message to them, the ukrainian president said sanctions on russia aren't enough. translation: ukraine needs more assistance with weapons, _ and that's air defence systems, the modern systems which our partners have, should not be on the sites or in storage, but in ukraine, where they are now needed. they are needed here more than anywhere else in the world. as world leaders meet at this luxury hotel in bavaria, divisions are emerging in the west. after four months of fighting, some say it would be better for the war to end, even if that means ukraine giving up territory. good to see you. good to see you. but that would be resisted by the leaders meeting here. they're expected to put on a show of unity, promising more weapons for ukraine and sanctions for russia. we have to say together. yeah. as

well they offer ukraine? ice practical terms, what more support well they offer ukraine?— well they offer ukraine? joe biden has actually _ well they offer ukraine? joe biden has actually said _ well they offer ukraine? joe biden has actually said that _ well they offer ukraine? joe biden has actually said that the - well they offer ukraine? joe biden has actually said that the g7 - well they offer ukraine? joe biden has actually said that the g7 will l has actually said that the g7 will announce, for example, an import ban on russian gold, which he said will strip tens of billions of dollars from vladimir putin's war machine, from vladimir putin's war machine, from his coffers. we don't know whether that is actually set in stone yet. there will be a final communique from the leader is probably on tuesday we think. that is certainly whatjoe biden has said on arrival. i am looking at a screen, seeing what is happening at this luxury secluded resort where they are meeting. looks as though most of the leaders are meeting inside and they will be greeted officially by olaf scholz the chancellor, germany is hosting the event is and has the presidency of the g7 at the moment. as you say, there will be a lot of focus on ukraine. they will talk a lot about sanctions, their efficacy, whether they could do more and financial support for ukraine. and possibly
military support, too. i think there is certainly a unity amongst these leaders, a sense that they are not going to back down, that they want to keep supporting ukraine, not least of course because they have president zelensky dialling in via video link to talk to them tomorrow. they will also be talking about the cost of living and how that is being exacerbated by the invasion of ukraine. what might come out of that? it ukraine. what might come out of that? , ., ., , ukraine. what might come out of that? , ., ., that? it is hard to say but you are uuite that? it is hard to say but you are quite right. _ that? it is hard to say but you are quite right. of— that? it is hard to say but you are quite right, of course, _ that? it is hard to say but you are quite right, of course, they - that? it is hard to say but you are quite right, of course, they are i that? it is hard to say but you are l quite right, of course, they are not just focusing on the situation in ukraine itself, they are looking at the consequences worldwide. they are going to want to talk about energy security, they are going to want to talk about how to make sure that there is enough food to go round, given that grain and wheat are difficult to get out of ukraine at the moment. that will put pressure on particularly african countries, for example. there are a number of countries who have been invited as special guests, including the south
african leader. this will be discussed against a huge cost of living crisis. many people will be looking to their leaders to come up with solutions, they are under political pressure, look at emmanuel macron of france who has been so weakened in recent parliamentary elections and borisjohnson, with his own troubles at home. they leaders know they are under considerable pressure. it is worth pointing out that there are demonstrations, always demonstrations, always demonstrations around these kind of summits. the ones we have seen haven't been as extensive as we have seenin haven't been as extensive as we have seen in previous years but some of the people, for example, among the 5000 demonstrators who gathered in munich yesterday afternoon are voicing their concerns that the g7 perhaps is all about talking and no real action, that they are very individually concerned themselves about the cost of living crisis. also about climate change. that is something which germany would have liked to have pushed forward. olaf scholz is very keen indeed to try
and get the countries to sign up to what he calls a climate club, a coalition of the willing, countries who want to sign up to restrictive measures to lower emissions. it is a controversial suggestion and it is possibly pushed into the background. one subject alone will dominate here and that is ukraine.— and that is ukraine. thank you very much. and that is ukraine. thank you very much- jenny _ and that is ukraine. thank you very much. jenny hill _ and that is ukraine. thank you very much. jenny hill reporting - and that is ukraine. thank you very much. jenny hill reporting at - and that is ukraine. thank you very much. jenny hill reporting at the i much. jenny hill reporting at the g7. at the g7 borisjohnson has defended his comment that he is "actively thinking" about a third term, which would require him to win the next two general elections. the statement came despite criticism of his leadership and speculation that he could face another attempt by his mps to remove him from office. here's our political correspondent, tony bonsignore. those comments were off camera yesterday, to reporters. he was asked, actually, about a second term and it was sort of classic borisjohnson in a way — his answer was, "second term? well, i'm thinking about a third term." and, obviously, that has angered
some, particularly his critics within the party. others love it. you know, they see it as very much in keeping with the way the prime minister approaches things. but he was asked about it on camera just in the last hour or so. this is what he had to say... what i'm saying is that this is a government that is getting on with delivering for the people of this country and we've got a huge amount to do, that's what i'm trying to get at. so, in the immediate future, we've got to get people through the current global inflationary pressures, the post—covid, ukraine—exacerbated inflationary pressuress that people have got, the energy price spike that we've got. but, at the same time, we've got a massive agenda of reform and improvement, a plan for a stronger economy, whereby we have to reform our energy markets, our housing markets, the way our transport networks work, our public sector, we've got to cut the costs of... of government and we've got to make sure that we grow our economy by reducing
the burden of taxation on business and on... on families and have better regulation. that's a huge agenda of work. plus, i'm here in the g7 in germany, getting on with the job of... of standing up for british values that we express around the world — democracy, human rights and freedom — and continuing to work with our partners on that terrible problem in ukraine. so a pretty long answer there from boris johnson to quite a simple question. i think the way he is trying to portray this, to frame this, is that, "we are a government that are here for the long term," because what he understands and what his party understands is the problems that are facing the country are deep and very difficult, whether the cost of living or ukraine or various structural problems in the economy. so i think he's trying to turn it into quite a positive and saying, "we're here for the long term." to be honest, victoria, i think his supporters will love this sort of stuff. his detractors will go, "well, he's delusional," the word that's been used, so i don't think it changes
the dial hugely. 20 people, reported to be young adults, have died in a nightclub in south africa. it happened in the enyobeni tavern in the scenery park area of east london. it's not clear whether the young people died from poisoning oi’ some other cause. a major police investigation is taking place. let's talk to our southern africa correspondent shingai nyoka who's in harare. can you tell us about what's gone on? police and community members, who are very distressed, still outside this night club, trying to understand what happened in the early hours of the morning. what the police have confirmed is that at least 17 people are dead. they say they received distress calls both for the police and emergency services in the early hours of this
morning. they really haven't said much more than that. eyewitnesses, some of them that were in the club, say that they just saw people fainting. reporters that are at the scene right now say that bodies were strewn all over the floor, on the tables, as well as on the chairs of this two story nightclub. it seemed as if they were sleeping. some of these pictures had been posted on social media. we haven't been able to confirm that this is actually from that nightclub. there are still a lot of questions about what happened. a lot of questions about what happened-— a lot of questions about what ha ened. . ~' ., ., , happened. so, what kind of theories are there about _ happened. so, what kind of theories are there about how _ happened. so, what kind of theories are there about how these _ happened. so, what kind of theories are there about how these people i are there about how these people died? well, the major suggestion is that they might have died in a stampede. but, at the department of community safety say, some of these bodies didn't have any visible wounds. there is another suggestion that they might have died from some form of poisoning, from some form of gas. the pictures that we had seen on
social media just appear to show people that are asleep on the table, sleep on chairs, as well as on the dance floor. it will only become clear in the next few hours, when the police release their statements. but what we have also seen is videos of what appears to be the nightclub last night, which was packed to capacity. so there is also a suggestion that it might have been too crowded. suggestion that it might have been too crowded-— suggestion that it might have been too crowded. ., ~ , ., , . ., too crowded. thank you very much for talkin: to too crowded. thank you very much for talking to us. — too crowded. thank you very much for talking to us, thank _ too crowded. thank you very much for talking to us, thank you. _ the former us president, donald trump, has hailed the supreme court ruling that overturned the right to abortion as a victory for the constitution, the rule of law, and life itself. protests for and against the decision have continued for a second day. some women in states where bans have come into force are rushing to make alternative arrangements, after clinics closed their doors and cancelled appointments. simonjones reports back up! angry scenes in los angeles as police confront protesters who are demanding that the right to abortion remains.
all chant: we want abortion on demand! anger, too, outside the supreme court in washington. i want to do something with you guys — a little therapeutic screaming. people determined that their voices are heard. screaming. don't kill your baby! but in mississippi, those who backed the supreme court's ruling gather outside an abortion clinic, emotions running high on both sides of the debate. my father is my king and he is not in you. he's not in you. you're in need of a saviour today. you're in need of a saviour. you don't know god. i know him more than you will ever know him. god does not hear your prayers. yes. — oh, he does hear them. no, you are for the devil. and a political divide, too. the court handed down a victory for the constitution, a victory for the rule of law and, above all, a victory for life.
this breakthrough is the answer to prayers of millions and millions of people. jill and i know how painful and devastating this decision is for so many americans — and i mean so many americans. the decision is implemented by states. my administration is going to focus on how they administer it and whether or not they violate other laws. like deciding to not allow people across _ like deciding to not allow people across state lines to get public health — across state lines to get public health services. we're going to take actions _ health services. we're going to take actions to— health services. we're going to take actions to protect women's rights and reproductive health. following the ruling, around 26 states looks set to ban abortions, except for when a woman's life is at risk, but a growing number of businesses say they will support those who need abortions, such as bank of america, which will cover travel costs. and prominent figures are continuing to speak out. obviously disappointed about the decision made and, you know, i just... really, for me, i mean, obviously,
i feel bad for future women, and women now, but i also feel bad for those who protested for this i don't even know how many years ago, but protested for this and are alive to see that... see that decision be reversed. but as the ramifications of the ruling sink in, the divisions in society remain as strong as ever. simon jones, bbc news. the prince of wales accepted a suitcase containing a million euros in cash from a former qatari prime minister, according to the sunday times newspaper. clarence house says the donations were passed immediately to charities — and all the corrected processes were followed. i'm joined now in the studio by our reporter leigh milner. fill us in with some of the detail of the sunday times is alleging. that prince charles accepted a suitcase containing i million euros in cash from a former qatari prime minister. this is one of three

people dead and 21 others injured. shots were fired at a popular gay venue in the capital oslo and led to authorities postponing the city's pride parade. gail maclellan has the latest. it was the celebration before the big lgbtq+ event of the year. the first pride march in three years. instead, a man went on a rampage with at least one automatic weapon, killing two and injuring over 20. the suspect, a norwegian who came from iran as a child, was arrested quickly after the shooting started. translation: the suspect has been known to the intelligence services. i he has a long history of violence and threats and was known to us since 2015, with concerns that he was radicalised as part of an islamist network in norway. the shootings happened near the london gay pub, and a jazz club in the central area, packed with people on a warm summer night. some hid in the pub's basement,
many made calls to loved ones. personally, for me, i know a lot of the people that were outside london pub last night, and i know a lot of the volunteers that we have in oslo pride, i also know people that were there and were either witnesses or injured last night. so this has definitely been a really hard hit to our community. flags and flowers were laid near the scene of the attack. norway's royal family spoke of the strength of the community. translation: it's important that we defend who we are, l that norway is a country where you are allowed to love who you want and be with you want. as a result of the attacks, the country's threat level has been raised and police temporarily armed.

he said, "that's a tough question, i would have to say "the best of the beatles." steve coogan kindly agreed that he would review the show for us. the rolling stones have only ever written about eight brilliant songs whereas the beatles have done about 50. # get back, get back # get back to where where you once belonged...# it seems impossible we were able to have experience it. hunter davies said in an article recently that we are lucky to have him among us. that is how i feel tonight. from the west coast of america... the first guest star of the evening... ..dave grohl. ..was a big surprise. # how could i dance with another # when i saw her standing there?# this is a big moment because it is the first time that dave grohl has appeared on stage since the death of his drummer, taylor hawkins. # when i saw her standing there...#

the ice age creature has been named nun cho ga, meaning "big baby animal". the mammoth was unearthed after a gold miner called his boss over to examine something that was hit by his bulldozer in the mud. now it's time for a look at the weather with owain wyn evans. hello, everyone, i hope you are doing all right. plentiful supply of heavy, blustery showers yesterday and more to come for many of us today. we are seeing some brightness, not a complete right off as far as the unsettled weather is concerned. the reason we are seeing this is down to what we are having here on the pressure chart, an area of low pressure, nearby not going anywhere in a hurry. you can see the wind swirling around and they are introducing those heavy and blustery downpours. showery spells of rain moving in from western part and you can see the weather front trading
from parts of scotland, northern ireland and north—west england and western wales. eventually creeping into the south—west of england. there is an east— west split, the further east you go, the drier it is and the warmer it is. top temperatures 23 celsius across south—eastern parts england. parts of wales and northern ireland in particular cooler and we have the heavy downpours as mentioned. i have spoken about the wind already. thanks to the presence of the low pressure, the wind gusts will be in excess of 40, 50 miles an hour in the isle of man, anglesey and western coastal fringes. breezy and blustery but how is it looking at glastonbury? quite windy with some heavy showers but it will brighten up heavy showers but it will brighten up and we will see some sunshine at times. let's head through this evening. the weather front is a very slowly creeping across towards the east, introducing the heavy downpours and with it. again, you could hear the odd rumble of
thunder. eastern parts of england remaining dry but we can't rule out the odd shower here as well. top temperatures reaching 11 or 12 celsius as far as our low flu is consent tonight. the low pressure i was speaking of earlier is moving across to the north. —— as far as our lows are concerned. another low creeping in from the west over the next 24 hours. monday starts dry and we still have the heavy downpours moving across towards the east. this is the low pressure introducing the weather front into parts of northern ireland. another windy one, these are the average wind speeds with gusts in excess of what we are seeing here. top temperature is quite similar, 22 or 23 celsius. fairly unsettled at times this week, i think, thanks to the low pressure. temperatures will rise for a bit at times and i will keep you posted. that is how it is looking. see you soon.
