hello, welcome to the programme. politicians, celebrities and charities have been paying tribute to the cancer campaigner, blogger and podcaster dame deborahjames, who has died of bowel cancer at the age of a0. the host of the �*you, me and the big c�* podcast — also known as �*bowel babe�* — was awarded a damehood in may, in recognition of her tireless fundraising. she had been receiving end—of—life care at home. jon kay reports. right to the very end of her life, dame deborahjames was determined to live every moment to the full. just a few weeks ago, she was at the chelsea flower show to see a rose that had been named after her. cheers! she wanted to make the very most of whatever time she had left. in herfinal weeks, deborah published a book. she started a fund for cancer charities which has raised millions of pounds. she launched a range of clothes, with a rebellious hope t—shirt, that has raise money for charity. and then on father's day, she posted
this image with the words, "my dad is brushing my hair because i have no strength any more". announcing her death last night, herfamily said... i was diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer at the age of 35. we are actually talking about life and death here. it is heart—wrenching at times. come on, mummy, you can go faster than that. so, i have the poo cancer. there's nothing pink about my cancer, it's just brown. so, i was pooing blood and eventually got diagnosed with a 6.5 centimetre tumour up my bum, basically.
deborah was always honest and open about her cancer. she shared her every step of herjourney from endless rounds of chemotherapy to the terrible side—effects of the drug treatment she was on. but, through it all, she was determined to keep smiling, to keep dancing. # singing in the rain. our podcast is about living with cancer, right? and it is about showing life goes on. so if cancer wants me twirling around on the stage and wearing sequins and if it means i have to do treatment and train and dance, then, actually, that is what life is. let's dance through the rain. i love that saying, dance through the rain. prime minister borisjohnson said...
dame deborah leaves behind a large, loving family and two children. she says she was lucky to have five extra years to see them grow up. in herfinal days, she was surrounded by her family at her parents�* home. and in her last interview she said she was convinced that new treatments will be found. cancer should become a chronic disease. i hope it will be in my kids�* lifetime.come a chronic disease. but, i think, there are people doing amazing things and we need to support them and fund them. deborah was made a dame last month. the award presented in person by prince william at her parents�* home. dame deborah wrote her own epitaph. a message posted on social media last night. it said...
chief executive of nhs england amanda pritchard said: speaking earlier on bbc breakfast, the broadcaster tony livesey, who was a close friend of deborah�*s, recalled interviewing her while she was receiving end of life care at home. she kind of asked me to do her last radio interview and i chatted to her in her garden and she reflected on an amazing but short life. and i feel all the fame she�*s getting now, for example, last night i was looking at rylan tweeted, the prime minister, angela rayner, you name it. and all she would have said to them was, "never mind that,
just check your poo." fame was a byproduct. she was this extraordinary burst of life who was given a platform on 5 live and just took it to the max and all she wanted to do was save lives. and i�*m telling you now, if one person goes away from this interview or everything you�*ve done this morning, checks their poo, saves their life, then debs will be very happy. she was remarkable. you know, i did this interview in a garden and she was questioning herself. this is where the humanity came out, she was saying, "have i cut through?" isaid, "debs, have you cut through?" that was the morning prince william was tweeting about her. and she was also honest enough to say right at the end, you know, i�*ve done a deal with the devil, but i�*m frightened now, i�*m frightened of death. and i just thought that spoke volumes as well. and that�*s why she struck a chord with so many people, because it�*s what we�*ll all think when that moment comes. but, you know, i said goodbye to her, put the phone down. and i thought, right, that�*s it. subsequently, she raised seven million quid, printed a best selling book,
launched a fashion range and a flower named after her, turned up at the chelsea flower show. she conned me into thinking she�*d be around forever and that�*s why last night we knew it was coming, but itjust gave you that sinking feeling in your stomach. but i gave the eulogy for rachael bland when she died, and i�*m so proud i did that last interview with debs because it�*s a real testimony to her. teresa whitfield was diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer after seeing deborahjames talking about symptoms on tv. she is now cancerfree. good morning to you. good morning. a difficult morning, _ good morning to you. good morning. a difficult morning, obviously, _ good morning to you. good morning. a difficult morning, obviously, but - difficult morning, obviously, but what tony was talking about then and we have been reflecting on this morning, this raising awareness, saving lives and it seems, you are an actual example ofjust that? i am. i am an actual example ofjust that? i am. lam not an actual example ofjust that? i am. i am not sure an actual example ofjust that? i am. lam not sure how an actual example ofjust that? i am. i am not sure how to follow the tributes that have been going on
this morning, but without deborah, without seeing her on the tv and three years ago, i don�*t think i would have had the courage to go and pick the courage to talk to the gp, i don�*t think i would have realised what the symptoms of bowel cancer were and i don�*t think i would be here today. i was diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer because i listen to deborah and she was, is, a total inspiration and the total rock star. she is the most amazing woman and we have to carry on the good work she has done. just to make sure that everything she has done for the past five years hasn�*t been in vain. he started by saying you don�*t know how you could follow any of that, that was one of the most powerful things i have heard. she would be utterly thrilled to hear your story, because that is exactly of awareness and the impact she wanted to have by
talking so openly about it. if you don�*t mind, i will ask you about your experience, because it is absolutely terrifying at those early stages, not to mention the gruelling treatment, too. tell us a bit about what you went through. i treatment, too. tell us a bit about what you went through.— what you went through. i started feelin: what you went through. i started feeling unwell _ what you went through. i started feeling unwell probably - what you went through. i started feeling unwell probably six - what you went through. i started feeling unwell probably six to . what you went through. i started feeling unwell probably six to 12 | feeling unwell probably six to 12 months before i realised there could be anything wrong. i was very tired and i thought i was working too hard. i did have blood in my to. i went to the gp and i was told i was too young to be worried about anything, to fit and healthy and i didn�*t have enough symptoms to trigger an nhs intervention. i have sent away with tile cream and told not to worry about it, it will clear itself up. that was in the october and in the november i saw deborah on
the tv and i went back in the following january and i went back in february because my symptoms were worse, i was having more blood in my to. this time i had a pain in my tummy. my doctor told me it was probably a you�*re in infection. at that point she asked me what she could do to make me feel better. i said, find out what is going on. i was lucky we have private health care and i was able to go down that route and within three weeks i was diagnosed with bowel cancer, stage iii, stage ii bowel cancer which turned out to be stage iii following surgery. i had six months of chemotherapy and five colonoscopies later i am cancer free, three years later. ., , later i am cancer free, three years later. . . , later i am cancer free, three years later. ., , ., . , ., later. that is fantastic news to hear, without _ later. that is fantastic news to hear, without in _ later. that is fantastic news to hear, without in any _ later. that is fantastic news to hear, without in any way - later. that is fantastic news to i hear, without in any way minimal lies in what you went through before
that. i want to reference your t—shirt for anyone who might not know the phrase, can you explain that for us. this is rebellious hope. deb started the campaign to live life to the full, to have that rebellious hope and she has raised so much money for bowel cancer uk, has raised so much money for all cancer charities at the royal marsden. we have to carry on the campaign and carry on where she left off. she has had five years to save lives and save mine. she has now got a lifetime to change perception of bowel cancer, of bottoms. it is rebellious hope. i wear this with pride this morning. she started by hoping to raise £250,000, we are up
to near 7 million. it is incredible. it has been a delight to talk to you, thank you for coming on and that you are continuing her work as you say, by sharing your story with us. . ~' you say, by sharing your story with us. . ~ , ., you say, by sharing your story with us. . ~' i” you say, by sharing your story with us. . ~ . you say, by sharing your story with us. thank you so much, to reason. thank yom — world leaders are holding talks in madrid on the future direction of nato, in the wake of russia�*s invasion of ukraine. they received a boost after turkey dropped its opposition to finland and sweden�*s membership bids. the secretary—general of natojens stoltenberg says he expects swift ratification of sweden and finland�*s applications. he spoke as leaders gathered for the second day of the summit in madrid. we will make a decision today, or at least at the summit to invite finland and sweden to become members, that�*s unprecedented quick. i think you will hardly find any other accession process with so few weeks between the application that happened in mid—may and the invitation, that
will happen now. then of course, after the invitation we need the ratification process in 30 parliaments. that always take some time but i expect also that to go rather quickly because allies are ready to try to make that ratification process happen as quickly as possible. but, of course, i cannot promise anything on the author of 30 parliaments, they have to make those decisions themselves. in the last few moments, the prime minister has been speaking at the summit. if vladimir putin was hoping that he would be getting less nato on his western front as a result of his unprovoked, illegal invasion of ukraine, he has been proved completely wrong. he is getting more nato, this is a historic summit in many ways, but we have already got two members coming in, finland and sweden. a huge step forward for our alliance. borisjohnson is calling on other nato leaders
to increase their defence spending. the uk defence secretary ben wallace says the world order has changed since the end of the post—cold war �*peace dividend�* when nations cut back on defence funding. that is why this prime minister, when he gave me my spending settlement in 2020, he reversed that trend, and invested in defence, with a £24 billion fund. i am keen, as defence secretary, that at the end of that spending period of 2024, i make the case, for the middle of the decade, and that the threat has changed, and there is a reality check, there is a reality check that i got that settlement, preinvasion, and the 2% on gdp of nato was made in 2014, when russia was not remotely the same level of threat it is now and i�*m keen that, come the middle of the decade, we have a grown—up discussion about how much we need to spend on defence. we can cross live to madrid and our correspondent there mark lowen. good to see you, we will come back to the issue of funding and nations
increasing their spending and everything happening behind you. first thing we want to talk about is what we were talking about 24 hours ago which is the new member applications. there was scepticism it would happen, but we now have the confirmation so what is the latest there? ., ., , ~ , there? late last night turkey lifted its veto on finland _ there? late last night turkey lifted its veto on finland and _ there? late last night turkey lifted its veto on finland and sweden - its veto on finland and sweden joining the nato alliance. so they are to be invited formally to join nato today to become the 31st and 32nd members of the nato alliance. turkey had imposed a veto because it argued that finland and sweden were harbouring what turkey called terrace, which were largely kurdish figures, somejournalists, the members of turkish upper edition groups that turkey says were complicit in the failed coup against president erdogan in 2016. it was retorted that they were not
terrorists. but an agreement was reached that sweden will crack down more on the pkk and look at extradition that fugitives that ecky wants her back to turkey to face justice. so the border between nato and russia will double inside when finland and swedenjoin an president putin is getting the opposite of what he wanted. he invaded ukraine arguing to stop nato expansion and he is getting the polar opposite. that argument alone would make that summit and historic event, but what else are we expecting there now? the talks else are we expecting there now? iie: talks really else are we expecting there now? tie: talks really will focus very much on western resolve towards supporting ukraine with military, with more equipment and more arms, more political support. the ukrainian president is addressing the nato summit by video link today. the
mayor of kyiv was here in a scrum in the press centre last night. he told me that ukraine is very proud and thankful to nato for its support, but it wants even more. there is going to be talk of redefining russia, not as a strategic partner as the nato blueprint from 2010 laid out, but as the alliance�* main threat. that is a sign of how the world has changed in the last 12 years since the last strategic concept, its guidelines, blueprint at which it is redefining today. it will talk about shoring up nato�*s eastern flank with more manpower and firepower. they will talk about other issues, other dangers and threats. the problem of china countering china�*s military expansion. the problem of climate change, cyber security. expansion. the problem of climate change, cybersecurity. plenty on the agenda for the nato leaders to discuss today and finishing tomorrow. discuss today and finishing tomorrow— discuss today and finishing
tomorrow. ~ , ,., i ,, , i, tomorrow. we will be back with you, we are expecting _ tomorrow. we will be back with you, we are expecting significant - tomorrow. we will be back with you, we are expecting significant news . we are expecting significant news lines coming out of madrid throughout the day. thank you. ghislaine maxwell — once a prominent figure in new york society circles — is facing 20 years in a us prison for trafficking young girls to be abused byjeffrey epstein. she issued a statement, apologising to her victims — but herfamily said she would appeal. our correspondent, nada tawfik, was in court. a long—fought victory for annie farmer and all of ghislaine maxwell�*s victims. justice was slow. she was one of the earliest to report maxwell and the paedophile jeffrey epstein to police, in 1996. but today, annie said it was never too late for accountability. maxwell and epstein were predators who were able to use their power and privilege to harm countless individuals, and for far too long, the institutions that should be protecting the public were instead protecting them. and i still hope that we find out more about how that was allowed to occur. maxwell did not look at her victims,
but she did address them. she said she was sorry for the pain they had experienced. she also said her association with epstein, who she described as a manipulative, cunning man, was the greatest regret of her life. her statement felt like a very hollow apology to me. she did not take responsibility for the crimes that she committed and it felt like, once more, her trying to do something to benefit her and not at all about the harm that she had caused. the court allowed others who were not a part of the trial to also confront maxwell. the pain and anguish she caused was plain to see, as several accusers emotionally spoke about the lasting impact of her crimes, such as liz stein. she had a wonderful, full, beautiful life. and so many of usjust didn't have a chance to have that. i think that the closure part of her sentencing is maybe the beginning for a lot of us to start having the life
that we anticipated we might have if we had never met ghislaine maxwell and jeffrey epstein. the british daughter of the disgraced media tycoon robert maxwell ran in the most influential circles, rubbing elbows with presidents and princes. but in court, as she waited to hear her fate, she was supported byjust three members of her family. thejudge the judge rejected that maxwell was being punished in epstein�*s place and she had to accept her role in the horrific scheme. today is a step towards justice and perhaps the horrific scheme. today is a step towardsjustice and perhaps healing for the victims. nada tawfik, bbc news, new york. for many towns and villages, tourism is vital to the local economy — but it can come at a cost to those who live there. a bbc investigation has found that the number of holiday lets
in england has risen by 40% in the past three years — and there are concerns residents are being pushed out of some areas as a result. helen catt reports now from north devon. they come to croyde for the sea, the sand and the surf. tourism isn�*tjust welcome in north devon, it�*s vital. for us, it is everything. it is literally how we operate as a business. we pretty much only open through march till end of october and that is the tourist season. there is nothing here in winter, really. so it is the main time of year that everyone comes down. we welcome everyone down. the pandemic boosted staycationing in places like this, and the number of holiday lets has grown, too. by too much, say some locals. we�*ve got holiday lets. it�*s a holiday let, holiday let. if we are standing here, give me a sense of scale. looking down this road. looking down this road, you have three holiday lets there. there are a further two there. there is a further three right in front of us. wow, so that�*s in not a very large area.
it sort of gives you an idea ofjust how bad things have got. charlotte grew up in the village of georgeham a mile or so from croyde. she and her children have moved back in with her parents because she can�*t find anywhere to rent. it does put a whole stop on your life. you can�*t plan anything. everything comes back to... well, we don�*t know where we are going to be living. so my children don�*t know where they are going to go to college. my youngest son, do you put him into nursery, do you not? i can�*t start back at work. charlotte�*s friend emma set up a campaign group after she, too, was served with a no—fault eviction notice. ijust think it's really unfair that in an area where you have grown up and you have lived, being part of the community, you have been to school, all your friends and family are here, to feel that you are being pushed outjust so somebody can have a holiday, or that somebody can
have a second home just doesn't really resonate as fair. and we have both said we understand that people want to move to the area. we understand that people want to have holidays, especially after being locked up after covid. but there has got to be a balance. figures obtained by the bbc show that here in north devon, the number of holiday lets went up by a third in a period of three years up to november last year. but this isn�*t just an issue facing the south west of england. other tourist hotspots across england are facing similar issues. in scarborough, which includes the resort of whitby, the number of holiday lets rose by 43%. on the isle of wight, the number went up by 39% and there have been significant rises in norfolk, including in great yarmouth, where there was an increase of 44%. high saturations of holiday lets can also have a knock—on for local businesses, like here in keswick in the lake district. there aren�*t enough local people here to work in the businesses, because they can�*t live here. and if they can�*t live here, they can�*t work here. the community is crumbling and it�*s a crisis, it�*s a real crisis.
the government is now launching a long promised call for evidence on the impact of holiday lets in england. there are many benefits to having more accommodation provision in uk. it�*s good for our tourism industry, there is a variety of accommodation offers there. but it can come with a downside, as well. so we want to get the right balance and one of the options is to licence accommodation, at one extreme. or, we could end up doing nothing. and we want to get the evidence base together in order to decide what to do. the challenge for ministers will be finding a balance between harnessing the economic benefits without communities feeling like they are being washed away. let�*s pick through this issue. i�*m joined by martin satch, chief executive of the holiday home association. good morning. can you understand
from the point of view of people who want to settle and live in these towns and villages, their frustration at people with second homes, yes, but also holiday let�*s? yes, absolutely, i can understand that. we do understand there is a need for housing in rural areas and urban areas as well. we understand fully this problem of housing versus holiday accommodation. but we have to remember that holiday accommodation is vital for the tourism industry and is the tourism industry in many parts of the more far—flung parts of the uk that provides prosperity and jobs. so there is no point in curtailing holiday accommodation if that also results in less opportunities for employment for those very same local people. employment for those very same local --eole. ., , employment for those very same local neale, employment for those very same local n-eole. , people. people can absolutely understand — people. people can absolutely understand that, _ people. people can absolutely understand that, but - people. people can absolutely understand that, but it - people. people can absolutely understand that, but it is - people. people can absolutely understand that, but it is the l people. people can absolutely - understand that, but it is the rate.
the number of holiday lets in england has risen by 40% over three years, that isn�*t sustainable, is it? years, that isn't sustainable, is it? ., , , ., ., , years, that isn't sustainable, is it? ., ., , ,., years, that isn't sustainable, is it? .,., , , it? perhaps not and this is a result ofthe it? perhaps not and this is a result of the pandemic. _ it? perhaps not and this is a result of the pandemic. people _ it? perhaps not and this is a result of the pandemic. people have - it? perhaps not and this is a result| of the pandemic. people have been holidaying at home. we hope many of them have discovered that england is a very nice place to have a holiday, also wales and scotland as well. yes, it has gone up and we... what yes, it has gone up and we... what do ou yes, it has gone up and we... what do you want — yes, it has gone up and we... what do you want to _ yes, it has gone up and we... what do you want to do _ yes, it has gone up and we... what do you want to do about _ yes, it has gone up and we... what do you want to do about it - yes, it has gone up and we... what do you want to do about it there because there are various ideas, new builds that wouldn�*t be sold for that purpose, for example? builds that wouldn't be sold for that purpose, for example? putting an kind of that purpose, for example? putting any kind of restriction _ that purpose, for example? putting any kind of restriction exclusively i any kind of restriction exclusively on new builds is probably not going to work because that will simply divert attention to existing builds and there is far more of those. we support a registration scheme for holiday accommodation, so all holiday accommodation, so all
holiday accommodation, so all holiday accommodation should be registered. and potentially some form of licensing might be acceptable to the industry. licensing, registration, do you think that will be enough? potentially, it depends on the details. we don�*t want to go down some very bureaucratic roots and create a huge burden for the industry. we do want to see the opportunity for business owners... bearin opportunity for business owners... bear in mind that we are representing business owners who are offering holiday accommodation for the tourist industry, we are not representing second homeowners who own the second homes for their own use. very often those properties don�*t bring in large amounts of money and prosperity to rural areas and are unoccupied for a lot of time of the year. there is a very clear
distinction to be made between personal second homes and commercial holiday accommodation. irate personal second homes and commercial holiday accommodation.— holiday accommodation. we have to leave it there. _ holiday accommodation. we have to leave it there, but _ holiday accommodation. we have to leave it there, but thank _ holiday accommodation. we have to leave it there, but thank you - holiday accommodation. we have to leave it there, but thank you very i leave it there, but thank you very much. airbnb is making its ban on parties — brought in during the pandemic — permanent. the company says the ban is effective against large or disruptive gatherings. aianb says more than 6,000 guests were suspended in 2021 because of the rule. now it�*s time for a look at the weather with carol kirkwood. sticks now it�*s time for a look at the weather with carol. hello again. today we�*ve got a weather front pushing eastwards with its rain. that will clear and then for most of us, it�*s a day of sunshine and showers. and you can see by midday and into the early afternoon where that weather front will be producing some rain. we�*ve also got these showers, some of which will be heavy, potentially thundery. small risk of catching one at wimbledon this afternoon, but with lighter winds temperatures
up to 23 degrees will feel quite pleasant. now, as we head on through the evening and overnight period, many, but not all of the showers will fade. we�*ve got some more rainjust clipping kent and east anglia as it pushes northwards. and we�*ve also got some showery rain moving northwards across england and wales into northern ireland and scotland by the end of the night. it�*s not going to be a particularly cold night either. tomorrow, this band of showery rain continues to move northwards and we�*ll see a bit more cloud at times across east anglia and kent. elsewhere, sunshine and showers, most of the showers in the north and the west with highs getting up to 21.

of the night, but by half past ten, harmony tan was the star, serving to beat serena after three extraordinary hours. has there ever been a better first round match at wimbledon? for tan and herfamily it meant so much, to win on this court against this player. williams was back here at 40. in 12 months, she had not played one singles match. this is what tennis had missed for a year. made it! by that point they were in a decider and williams was ascending. willed on by the emotion of her emotion of her return, just to break tan�*s serve brought her close to tears. the frenchwoman is ranked 115th in the world but in her first match at wimbledon, here was harmony conducting centre court sound. she fought back not just then
but from four points down in the tie—break to win in a match where even she feared the worst. when i saw the draw, i was really scared, i mean... because, yeah, it�*s serena williams. she�*s a legend and, yeah, i was like, oh, my god, how can i play? and if i can win one game or two games, it was really good for me. williams stays on 23 major titles. one more would match the record but even she can�*t play forever. rafa nadal has 22 but in round one, he was tested. eventually through in four sets. today britain�*s grand slam winners are back for round two. emma raducanu plays caroline garcia then andy murray plays the man who has his name on a court. game, set, match, isner. john isner won the

like so many people have, so this means a lot. she will be back. a great win for heather watson. one of nine british players through, which could be more of harriet dart in action today. that is the most we have seen in these wimbledon championship since 1997. away from events at wimbledon... england�*s women will restart this morning with a lead against south africa after a brilliant recovery on day two. they�*d looked in trouble chasing down south africa�*s total of 284 when captain heather knight was run out. but thanks to the brilliant batting of nat sciver and debutant alice davidson—richards they fought back. both made centuries, davidson—ricards did fall in the final over of the day but england will resume in taunton on 328—6 with a 44—run lead.
about dragovic getting as under way at 130, then we will see emma raducanu up against caroline garcia. she was looking so much more relaxed after that opening—round victory. then andy murray, at the age of 35, how many more chances only have to play here centre court? it is going to be a fascinating matchup when he takes on john to be a fascinating matchup when he takes onjohn izza, later. ——john izza. —— isner. that�*s all the sport for now. let�*s get more now on dame deborahjames, the cancer campaigner, blogger and podcaster, who has died of bowel cancer at the age of 40. since she was diagnosed in 2016, deborah has earned praise for her intimate, frank and often humorous account of living with the disease. our reporter graham satchell looks back at how she inspired a nation, raised millions for charity and connected with thousands of other cancer patients. as she approached the end
of her life, deborahjames was honoured with a damehood. it was presented in person at her parents�* house by prince william. recognition for an extraordinary woman who captured the heart of the nation. for more than five years, dame deborah recorded, documented and shared her life with cancer, she danced her way through most of it. the way she campaigned and raised awareness of bowel cancer was a real boost for other people living with the condition. hello, and welcome to you, me and the big c. we all have one thing in common, we all have or we have had cancer. deborah used this bbc podcast to connect with thousands of other people living with cancer, to share stories, to support and help. whooo, deborah's dressed as a poo! within the space of a minute we are laughing and crying hysterically all at the same time. and that is what cancer is like.
i�*m not going to look at you. a crying poo is not what we need right now. me talking about my cancer helps me get through it. it helps me rationalise the rubbish that i�*m dealing with, and the people, the support that we get from people is helping us just as much as we are helping them. hello, welcome back. thank you. nice to see you. i was going to say it�*s nice to be here, but not as a patient! absolutely. deborah tried every treatment available to extend her life. hello, this is the tiny. probe which is very thin. i�*ve never seen this, i can�*t believe that actually goes inside of me! she was a former deputy head teacher and was endlessly curious about her condition. she was brilliant at communicating and never afraid to poke fun at herself. # i�*m too sexy for my shirt # too sexy for my shirt, so sexy it hurts.
she dressed up as a poo to tell people to check their bowel movements, to go to the doctor if there was anything unusual. her message, never be ashamed. more dancing, this time with her daughter. deborah had two young children. every moment was precious. it�*s been a privilege to just see them blossom into these kind of young adults or tweenagers or whatever we want to call 14—year—olds and 12—year—olds. what it�*s made me realise, actually, is just how much i�*ve been able to witness them grow up since i�*ve been diagnosed with cancer. the blessing of that five years is possibly the difference between them remembering me and not remembering me, and that is huge. # there were nights of endless pleasure # it was more than all your laws allow.
deborah�*s openness, her honesty, her positivity, had a huge impact. deborah, thank you for everything that you've done, thank you for giving so tirelessly when you're going through what you're going through and i know how much that takes out of your body. you are amazing and like you, i shall dance through this, i will get my celine dion, especially for you. i can't shake my hair, i've got no hair left but i'll do it for you. in the final days of her life, deborah started a fund for cancer charities. this is her daughter refreshing thejust giving page as it reached its first million. cheering it is an extraordinary legacy. even at the very end, she was thinking of others. over the last five years, i�*ve campaigned, i�*ve spoken about awareness, i�*ve shared my story for a reason. i don�*t want any other deborahs
to have to go through this. it makes me feel like we are all kind of a bit in it at the end together, and we want to make a difference and say, you know what, screw you, cancer, we can do better. we can do better for people. and we just need to show it who�*s boss. deborah was charming and cheeky, profound and inspirational and she always wanted one last dance. tribute to the life of dame deborah

she delivered explosive testimony. describing how trump had been informed that many in the crowd on the 6th of january were carrying weapons. yet he was furious about security measures. metal detectors were used to find guns and knives. he wanted the screenings stopped to let more people in, ms hutchinson told the committee in previously recorded testimony. i overheard the president say something to the effect of, "i don�*t effing care they have weapons. "they�*re not here to hurt me. "take the effing mags away." donald trump: we are going to walk down and i'll be there with you. - trump did want to go to the capitol but as he ordered the secret service to drive him there he was told it wasn�*t safe. he said something to the effect of, "i�*m the effing president, take me up to the capitol now." when the president�*s secret service agent, bobby engel, refused to go to the capitol, trump got physical. the president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. mr engel grabbed his arm and said, "sir,
you need "to take your hand off the steering wheel. "we�*re going back to the west wing. "we�*re not going to the capitol." mr trump then used his free hand to lunge towards bobby engel. trump has responded, saying this is a "fake story that is sick and fraudulent." today is the first time we have heard exactly what was happening inside the white house on the 6th of january, how the president�*s most senior advisers anticipated the violence and did little to stop it, and then asked trump for a presidential pardon so they couldn�*t be prosecuted. did white house chief- of staff mark meadows ever indicate that he was interested . in receiving a presidential pardon relating to the 6th ofjanuary? mr meadows did seek that pardon, yes, ma�*am. first—hand evidence from someone who was right at the heart of the white house. sarah smith, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news... tributes are paid

to the deaths of at least 50 migrants abandoned in a lorry in texas on monday. 16 other people, including four children, were found alive inside the vehicle. it�*s the worst case of migrant deaths due to smuggling in the us. the white house has described the deaths as horrific and heartbreaking. our correspondent will grant has sent this report. this desolate stretch of rows between train tracks and junkyards is no place to die. yet, more than 50 people lost their lives after being smuggled across the us — mexico border, in unbearable conditions, trapped inside a stifling hot trailer with no air vents or water, more than 20 mexicans, and others from honduras and guatemala were among the dead. everybody�*s looking for something better. the only place is here in the united states. some locals came to pay their respects. visibly upset by the terrible loss of life on their doorstep. we are not animals, we are human beings. and the way they left them here?
it is not a proper thing to do. it is not. it is not human. even as a small prayer vigil was held for the victims in san antonio, this tragedy has fast become political. the republican leadership has accused the biden administration of failing to clamp down on undocumented immigration but president biden said it underscored the need to dismantle the criminal smuggling industry, which preys on migrants. yet, cross—border migration is as old as the state of texas itself. and the answer to preventing such an awful incident transcend party boundaries. this is exactly what i am seeing in my district, the carnage, day after day, and it has to stop. we have to come together to secure our border for the sake of helping innocent people who were trying to come up, many of them trying to come over here for a better life for themselves and their families.
still, still, the likelihood of this tragedy bringing the two sides together to find a common solution, especially ahead of the november midterms, is extremely remote. the investigation into who abandoned the track on this road and left these migrants to their deaths is now in federal hands. but, in truth, the criminal organisations who operate the the people—smuggling routes into texas are so powerful that no one of any real significance is likely to face justice over their deaths. will grant, bbc news, san antonio, texas. the journalist and nobel peace prize winner maria ressa says rappler — the news website she co—founded in the philippines — has been ordered to close. the order was made on tuesday — two days before rodrigo duterte steps down as president. the website has been highly critical of his controversial war on drugs. millions of australian bees are in �*lockdown�* because of an outbreak of a deadly parasite that�*s threatening to cost the honey industry tens of millions of dollars. the verroa destructor mites
were first found at a port near sydney last week and have since been spotted in hives 100 kilometres away. keepers inside a new biosecurity zone will not be able to move hives, bees or honeycomb until further notice, while 400 hives within infested locations will be destroyed. australia was the only continent free of the mites — which are the biggest threat to bees worldwide. now it�*s time for a look at the weather with carol. hello again. we have seen some heavy rain overnight. and first thing this morning across some parts of the country, and that is all courtesy of a weather front which is moving steadily eastwards. now, this second weather front following on behind is going to weaken, but it will still pep up the showers. for wimbledon today we are looking at the rain clearing, and then largely dry for the rest of the day. only a 5% risk of a shower in the afternoon. temperatures getting up to 22 celsius in light winds. that will feel quite pleasant.
if we pick up that same weather front that is producing the rain, you can see where it is, and it is going to bring more rain in across the north—east of scotland. showers following on behind, some of which will be heavy and thundery, a lot of them will be in the north and west. fewer in the south and east and in between, looking at bright spells or indeed some sunshine. temperatures between 15—23 celsius. pollen levels today are going to be high across much of england and wales, very high in east anglia and moderate across all of scotland and northern ireland. heading into the evening and overnight, showers will fade, but not all of them. cast your eye to what is happening in the south—east because we will see rain coming in through kent and east anglia for a time. if we follow this round it is a weather front which will bring rain northwards, through northern england into northern ireland and also scotland. it is not going to be a cold night with all of this going on. tomorrow, all of this showery rain pushes steadily northwards. on the southern side of it
we are looking at a mixture of sunshine and showers, perhaps the showers a bit more widespread tomorrow than today, and with the weather front close to east anglia and east of kent, we could well see a bit more cloud. temperatures down just a notch on today as well, highs of 21. into friday, we have this system, bringing some rain across the far north and east and, behind it, back into that cocktail of sunshine and showers or bright spells. it will be quite breezy on friday with temperatures ranging between 14 and 22 celsius. thereafter high pressure starts to build. that doesn�*t mean it will be bone dry, especially not on saturday. there will be some showers around but sunday is likely to be the driest day of the weekend and as we head into the early part of next week,
this is bbc news. i�*m lewis vaughanjones, and these are the latest headlines in the uk and around the world... crucial talks on the future direction of nato are getting under way in madrid. borisjohnson will call on his fellow leaders to increase their military spending. what we also need to do to make sure that we think about the lessons of the last few months and the need for nato to revise its posture. iam i am live in madrid where nato leaders are said to approve a huge troop increase for the eastern flank and formally invite finland and sweden to join the alliance. tributes are paid to the british cancer campaigner, blogger and broadcaster
