10:02 pm
a quick reminder about the importance of nato here. the north atlantic treaty organization is a military alliance between 30 member states founded in 1949, whose members agree to defend each other against attacks by third parties. nato is now on track to comprise 32 countries, as finland and sweden, two previously neutral countries, have been cleared for membership. russia is very unhappy about that. the united states has announced that more troops, planes and ships will be based in europe to strengthen the alliance. president biden said this was because president putin had "shattered" the peace with russia�*s invasion of ukraine. 0ur political editor chris mason reports from madrid. the prime minister of the united kingdom... 0ne after another, they arrived, the leaders of the world�*s largest
10:03 pm
military defence alliance marking the moment it is getting bigger. nato sees russia as a significant and direct threat to its security, and its most powerful member is acting accordingly. nato is strong, united, and the steps we're taking during this summit are going to further augment our collective strength. to that end, today, i'm announcing the united states will enhance our force posture in europe. america�*s sending more warplanes to the uk and boosting its military presence across europe. british troops are already deployed in estonia. the prime minister likes to repeat the uk has europe�*s biggest defence budget and there�*s been a big increase in funding, but critics point out the army is shrinking. and remember, ukraine is not in nato, and so support for it is more indirect — and, in the view of this ukrainian mp here, nowhere near enough. we need ten times more help to win this war and to end this war-
10:04 pm
in favour of the whole world as soon as possible. - and we need it urgently, - because for us every day means lives — unfortunately, - sometimes hundreds of lives. expect more support for ukraine to be announced before this summit concludes. it�*s great news for nato... ukraine�*s invasion has provoked terror among russia�*s neighbours. the leaders of finland and sweden have decided to ditch their neutrality, and nato is welcoming them in. a very important day in the sense that we are seeing expansion of the alliance, which is exactly the opposite of what putin wanted. he wanted less nato, he getting more. there is an energy here born of necessity, a collection of countries confronted by an aggressive russia awoken from an era of shriveling defence budgets. there is a real sense here of a dangerous future and a clamour for the money to match.
10:05 pm
and it�*s all because of president putin, meeting his own allies in turkmenistan today. he�*s transformed how the west sees itself and its security. tonight the leaders gathered for dinner at a museum here in the spanish capital, the soundtrack provided by a ukrainian orchestra. the war has changed the picture of how the west sees itself and its security. chris mason, bbc news, at the nato summit in madrid. newly released footage from ukraine has established that a shopping centre in the city of kremenchuk was hit directly by a russian cruise missile. the death toll from monday�*s strike in the east of the country has risen to at least 18 while more than 30 people are still missing. russia says it doesn�*t attack civilians and claims the target was an ammunition warehouse. 0ur europe correspondent
10:06 pm
nick beake reports. the brute force of russia�*s strike. a cruise missile fired from a plane hundreds of miles away, plunging towards ukrainian families doing their shopping. 18—year—old daria has been looking for her mum ever since. larissa, a cleaner, was at work in an electronics shop. translation: i am so composed, not because i don't feel _ anything, but because i need to support my relatives. that�*s how it is easier for me, but what i feel is emptiness. many more families have been searching in desperation. four days before the strike, shopping centre management told staff it would no longer be evacuated during air raid alerts. there�*s now a criminal investigation into that decision.
10:07 pm
it�*s obvious that many people simply didn�*t stand a chance. the operation here is now moving to dismantling the remainder of the building. the impact on families here in kremenchuk will be felt for months and years to come. but you�*ve got to remember that russia continues to kill civilians across this country. at least five people were killed this morning in this strike on a residential block in mykolaiv. but from elsewhere in the same southern city, russia was releasing this footage, claiming it had destroyed a training base for foreign fighters. russia says that it doesn�*t hit civilian targets. russia says it doesn�*t kill civilians. what do you say to that? translation: i know what the truth is, but i think it won't matter- because this won�*t return my mother to me, it won�*t return children
10:08 pm
to hundreds of other parents. the uk�*s ministry of defence says it�*s possible russia�*s missile was intended to hit another target nearby, but it didn�*t. and moscow is prepared to live with the consequences. nick beake, bbc news, kremenchuk. let�*s speak to our russia editor, steve rosenberg, whojoins from that summer today several robust messages being sent to russian president putin. then speak to our russia editor, steve rosenberg, whojoins us to our russia editor, steve rosenberg, who joins us from moscow now. how has that been received, steve? , ., , , steve? yes, on paper, this looks like an embarrassing _ steve? yes, on paper, this looks like an embarrassing defeat - steve? yes, on paper, this looks like an embarrassing defeat for l steve? yes, on paper, this looks. like an embarrassing defeat for the kremlin. foryears, president putin has been complaining about too much nato and russia�*s borders. the russians have demanded an end to nato enlargement to the east, even sight of nato enlargement as a justification for the invasion of
10:09 pm
ukraine. and what of the russians got as a direct result of that invasion? even more nato, 300,000 nato troops on high alert, finland and sweden now poised tojoin nato troops on high alert, finland and sweden now poised to join the alliance. welcome in the last few minutes, vladimir putin has been commenting on the situation and today�*s events. he said he wasn�*t surprised, that nato has been preparing for confrontation with russia since 2014, and on the subject of sweden and finland joining the alliance, he said, let them do that, but if they deploy nato military infrastructure, russia will respond symmetrically. one more thing. i think we can expect. the kremlin will try to use nato�*s response today to boost, to reinforce the narrative it�*s created for the domestic audience year, a narrative which says that russia is a besieged fortress surrounded by enemies. it will try to rally people around the flag and around the president. steve, many thanks again. the latest

analysis in moscow, steve rosenberg. the duke and duchess of cambridge have paid tribute to dame deborahjames, the campaigner and broadcaster who died of cancer yesterday at the age of 40. they described her as inspirational and brave, a woman whose legacy would live on. charities have also praised dame deborah�*s work following her diagnosis for bowel cancer in 2016. last month, she launched the bowel babe fund, to raise money for new treatments and research. our correspondent helena wilkinson reports. # i'm singing in the rain...# dame deborahjames faced her cancer diagnosis her own way, determined to keep smiling despite gruelling treatment. her family have described her as an amazing wife, daughter, sister, mummy, and said even in her most challenging moments, her determination to raise money and awareness was inspiring. hello, and welcome to you, me and the big c... deborah spoke about living with cancer as co—host of a bbc podcast.
10:11 pm
so, i was pooing blood, and eventually got diagnosed with a 6.5cm tumour up my bum, basically. and she gave hope to so many others. when i got my third diagnosis in 2019, she was the first person that i called. emma campbell met deborah while they were both campaigning. that passion to raise awareness and spread awareness of early detection of bowel cancer and also to show that, as long as there are options and as long as there is hope, you can continue to find reasons to smile in life. last month, deborah revealed that she was receiving end—of—life care at home. i have a really loving family who... ..i adore. they�*re just incredible. and, erm... ..all i knew i wanted was to come here and be able to relax, knowing that everything was ok.
10:12 pm
deborah was later honoured with a damehood, delivered by prince william. today, the duke and duchess of cambridge said she was inspirational and her legacy will live on. her campaigning has already touched so many. without deborah, without seeing her on the tv three years ago, _ i don't think i would have had the courage to go and pick. the telephone up to talk to the gp, i don't think i would have i realised what the symptoms of bowel cancer were, and i actually don't think i would be here today. . deborah�*s family have shared some of herfinal thoughts. "find a life worth enjoying, take risks, love deeply, "have no regrets and always, always have rebellious hope. "and, finally, check your poo — it could just save your life." dame deborah did invaluable work to raise awareness of bowel
10:13 pm
cancer and its symtoms. it is the fourth most common cancer and the second biggest cancer killer. the deborahjames fund, which has raised over £7 million, was established to raise money for new treatments — in particular personalised, targeted drugs. our medical editor fergus walsh has been to meet one patient taking part in a trial of a new experimental medicine. i�*m leading a normal life, doing things that i didn�*t think i�*d do again. i feel very lucky. richard condie from surrey was diagnosed with bowel cancer seven years ago. it�*s since spread to his liver. i was told i had about 12 months to go. we�*ve beaten that. in october, he started on an experimental immunotherapy at the royal marsden hospital. the drug, given as a weekly infusion, directs natural killer cells in his immune system to target the cancer.
10:14 pm
since then, most of his tumours have shrunk. in a small study, a third of patients on this immunotherapy saw their cancer stabilise. but, as with all new drugs, larger trials are needed to assess its effectiveness. well, we've got thousands of drugs in development. the future looks, i think, good. i've seen amazing transformations in cancer care, and we can cure cancers that were hitherto incurable. we can control cancers that we couldn't control. come on, then. i�*m getting old! these new personalised treatments target genetic markers found in some tumours, like richard�*s, enabling them to distinguish more easily between healthy and cancerous cells. i�*m coping very well. the side effects are minimal. the drugs i had before, chemotherapy, did have some bad side effects in terms of tiredness and suchlike.
10:15 pm
this is hardly noticeable. he is back to the richard that i knew, years before all of this started. and it's taken the edge off the fact that he has still got it. come on. richard knows that his cancer will eventually get the upper hand. but the four drug trials he�*s been on have extended his life and helped to discover the cancer treatments of the future. fergus walsh, bbc news, surrey. and you can watch the documentary deborahjames: the last dance on iplayer now or on bbc one at 8:30 tomorrow evening. a royal spokesman has confirmed that millions of pounds in cash donations were paid to one of prince charles�* charities, but that it hadn�*t happened since and wouldn�*t happen again.
10:16 pm
the comment came after the sunday times reported that charles, seen here in edinburgh today, was handed around £2.5 million pounds in banknotes by a former prime minister of qatar between 2011 and 2015. clarence house insisted all correct procedures were followed. our royal correspondent sarah campbelljoins me now. what else can we say about this episode? what else can we say about this e - isode? what else can we say about this eisode? , ., , episode? there were reportedly three meetinas episode? there were reportedly three meetings and — episode? there were reportedly three meetings and at _ episode? there were reportedly three meetings and at at _ episode? there were reportedly three meetings and at at least _ episode? there were reportedly three meetings and at at least one of- episode? there were reportedly three meetings and at at least one of them | meetings and at at least one of them the prince accepted a huge amount of cash from sheikh hamad binjassim, lodged a nomination banknotes, according to the sunday times somewhere in fortnum & mason carrier bags. the money was immediately handed over to the prince of wales charitable fund and according to the policy auditing was all correct. it has been a few days since this story broke and the prince has been
10:17 pm
subject to comment and criticism over whether he should have accepted the money at all. a senior palace officials estimate we briefing and responded —— asked in a briefing and responded —— asked in a briefing and responded it has not happened for more than half a decade, it would not happen now. that was then, this is now. in other words, what would have seemed acceptable when these cash donations were given between 2011 and 2015 would not be acceptable now. whether a knot that will satisfy critics is one question. also there are no rules against cash donations to charity but the charity commission says it will look at the information and see whether there was any role for them. thank you, sarah campbell. farmers across the uk are cutting back on food production as they struggle with soaring costs, according to a study by the national farmers�* union. it found that a third of farmers say they�*re cutting back on crops such as wheat for food because fertiliser has trebled in price. instead they are planning to grow
10:18 pm
wheat for animal feed because it needs less fertiliser. the nfu says it will make the uk more reliant on foreign imports at a time when the war in ukraine is creating food shortages. our business editor simonjack reports. if ukraine is the breadbasket of the world, lincolnshire is the breadbasket of britain. it produces one eighth of the uk�*s food, but there�*s a chill wind blowing through the farming industry. rising costs, labour shortages and pressure from supermarkets is causing a crisis of confidence. we�*ve got this massive shortage from ukraine and russia... andrew ward says a quadrupling of fertiliser prices mean his crop could be down this year. if the fertiliser is so expensive and it�*s not viable to apply the maximum amount, then the tonnes we get will be less, which means there will be less food. we are only about 65% self—sufficient in the uk at the minute, and that�*s dropping all the time, and so we need to get more food produced in the uk and not less, and we need to rely less on imports. i have never known it
10:19 pm
so volatile, so stressful. i get up in the morning and sometimes i wonder why am i doing that? as this graph shows, farmers�* costs have risen even faster than food or general prices, which mean something�*s got to give — prices must rise or some farmers will go bust. livestock farmers are under the same pressures, plus last year thousands of pigs were destroyed thanks to a post—brexit shortage of butchers and abattoir workers. many are now cutting herd sizes. we sell about 3,500 pigs a week... tom allen, in oxfordshire, says he�*s losing £30 to £40 per pig, which means he�*s downsizing. we�*ve reduced by about a third. the industry as a whole now is getting in for 20, 25% of pig producers stopping producing pigs, quite often mainly independent producers, like myself. what that means is that there will be a shortage of pig meat coming quite quickly. agriculture�*s facing a lot of challenges. you�*ve got high input prices like feed, fuel, fertiliser, limited ability to pass that on,
10:20 pm
labour shortages mean it is hard to process some of these products, and that means that farmers are rearing fewer animals and planting fewer crops, which makes the uk more reliant on foreign imports at the worst possible time. this lincolnshire field was very nearly converted into a solar farm, and farmers face often confusing options about how to use their land, with demand for rewilding, biofuels, even housing, competing with food while eu—era subsidies taper off. the nfu says food should always be the top priority. the road that we�*re on is a very uncertain one. i think we have to redefine what we look like outside of the eu. we�*re an island nation. food security should be treated with that same national interest as defence is, and that needs the right policies in place for food production, forfarming businesses to thrive, for consumers to continue to have access to high—quality, affordable food. the government said it recognised the pressure on farmers and had brought forward existing subsidy payments and issued 10,000
10:21 pm
additional migrant worker visas, but if farmers are to survive, food prices look certain to head higher still. simon jack, bbc news. one of britain�*s most popularfood brands, heinz, has stopped supplying tesco with most of its products in a dispute over pricing. baked beans, ketchup and tomato soup are among the familiar products affected. our business correspondent emma simpson has more details. what is going on? this is a row between two very big household names — kraft heinz, the giant food manufacturer, and tesco, britain�*s biggest retailer, and of course we�*re talking about products which are sold in huge quantities every week, like the nation�*s favourite baked beans. it�*s already resulting in gaps in some of tesco�*s supermarket shelves and its website. as we heard in simon�*s piece just there, the food supply chain is grappling with unprecedented cost pressures.
10:22 pm
and as a result, suppliers, big and small, have had to negotiate with retailers about price rises, it�*s been going on for months. this disagreement has resulted in heinz hitting the pause button on supplying tesco with most of its products. heinz says commodity and production costs are rising and it want to provide products at the right price which doesn�*t compromise on quality. tesco says it�*s laser—focused on keeping the cost of the weekly shop in check and that it wants to protect shoppers from what it describes as unjustifiable price increases. both sides say they are working to resolve the situation as quickly possible. this relationship is too important not to do a deal. who blinks first? huw. thanks very much, emma simpson, our business correspondence. the only survivor of the group behind the november 2015 paris attacks has been found guilty
10:23 pm
of terrorism and murder charges. salah abdeslam received a rare full—life prison term for his role in the gun and bomb attacks that killed 130 people. the court convicted all 20 men put on trial, 19 of them on terrorism charges. the trial was the largest in modern french history and lasted more than nine months. the r&b singer r kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison tonight by a us federal court in new york after he was found guilty of sexually abusing women, boys and girls for decades. the 55—year old singer was convicted of all nine counts against him, in the sex trafficking trial, which took place in september. our north america correspondent nada tawfik was in court and sent this report. r kelly�*s victims were ignored and vilified for years, mainly black americans who felt their voices weren�*t valued. this sentence means everything to them. there wasn�*t a day in my life until this moment that i actually believed that the judicial system would come through for black and brown girls.
10:24 pm
i stand here very proud of myjudicial system, very proud of my fellow survivors and very pleased with the outcome, 30 years that he�*d do this, and 30 years is what he got. i never thought that i would be here to see him be held accountable for the atrocious things that he did to children. i don't know what else to say except that i'm grateful. i'm grateful for today. # i believe i can fly...# his star power was his shield. he used his inner circle to exploit minors, women and men. they all came from varied backgrounds but were similar in their adoration for kelly. once under his control, he required than to follow a degrading set of rules. they had to call him daddy and they weren�*t permitted to leave their rooms for any reason without his permission. he also directed every aspect of the sexual abuse with him and others and recorded many of the instances. for years, his crimes
10:25 pm
were an open secret, including his marriage to the late r&b singer aaliyah when she was just 15 years old and he 27. the stories from a documentary called surviving r kelly stunned the public and led to calls to mute his music. chanting: mute r kelly! mute r kelly! it also shone a light on an industry said to be rife with harassment and abuse. the music industry hasjust not even begun to have its reckoning. it isn'tjust one person who is, like, a a skeevy predator. it's the scaffolding, it's the system, it's the star machine. r kelly�*s legacy will no longer be defined by his voice. he�*ll forever be remembered as a sexual predator. welfare church was clearly affected by this case of serial rape. —— well, thejudge was. she

by this case of serial rape. —— well, the judge was. she said by this case of serial rape. —— well, thejudge was. she said he had indifference to human suffering and forced his victims do unspeakable things. kelly chose not to give a statement but his lawyer said the 55—year—old was devastated by the sentence and would be appealing. studio: thank you, nada tawfik in new york. tennis, and it�*s been a very disapointing day at wimbledon for britain�*s emma raducanu, whose championship is over after she was outplayed by france�*s caroline garcia, the world number 55, in a second—round match on centre court. andy murray was also defeated today. our sports correspondent laura scott reports. deja vu on day three. the same three stars on centre court as monday, but would it be the same story? making a statement early, novak djokovic playing every trick in the book to give thanasi kokkinakis the run around. commentator: he knew that was coming. wrapping up a commanding victory in exactly two hours. umpire: game, set and match, djokovic. home hopes were high,
10:27 pm
harriet dart making it ten brits in the second round for the first time since 1984, but the tests would only get harderfrom here. cameron norrie made life hard for himself, going to five sets in his tussle for a third round spot, but after his opponent suffered cramp, his path to victory was clearer. time for all eyes on the british women�*s number one emma raducanu. it was a shaky start, up against the relentless power of caroline garcia, a former world number four. the winners just kept flying past her. commentator: oh! it�*s too good! there were signs the tide was turning on the second set. oh! phenomenal! but despite the will of the crowd, it wasn�*t the result they wanted, as garcia flew into round three. raducanu out, but not down. even when, you know, it was tough at the end there,
10:28 pm
they wanted to see me and they wanted to see more and, yeah, it was just a really nice feeling to have. standing at six foot ten, john isner is an american ace machine. murray�*s done best with his back against the wall. two sets to love down, into a tie—break, he found that something extra. commentator: hold on... no, no. no! _ that's all he needs! they believed, he believed. but isner had more than his serve. he had this. and this was a tennis masterclass byjohn isner. murray making his earliest ever exit from wimbledon. after that match, john isner described andy murray as one of the greatest ever players, saying the locker room was lucky to still have
10:29 pm
murray in it. butjust like serena williams last night, murray was askedif williams last night, murray was asked if we would ever hear him play at wimbledon again. he said he didn�*t know, he would like to budget is impossible to make long—term plans when you have a metal hip. studio: thank you, laura scott at wimbledon. time for a look at the weather. here�*s ben rich. angry skies offjersey earlier this evening, a sign of things to come because while most of us had sunshine and showers, as you can see from the earlier radar picture, cloud has been gathering down south and bringing outbreaks of rain, the rain now working across the english channel into southern england and driving northwards overnight with heavy bursts, it could be quite sporadic, drierspells heavy bursts, it could be quite sporadic, drier spells too. tomorrow morning starts with rain across much of scotland, especially the north—east, this rain across county
10:30 pm
antrim and county down could be enough to cause poor travelling conditions, surface water and spray. the rain will continue to journey northwards and we are back to sunshine and showers, some heavy, thundery and slow—moving with very light winds, sunny spells in between, could see patchy rain gracing the coast of east anglia and temperatures 16 to 21 degrees. for wimbledon tomorrow the chance we could see the logic shower, it may into a play at times but not all the time, there could be spells of sunshine and showers in the mix for wimbledon on friday, as for many others, some heavy and thundery, more of a breeze, rain in the morning in north—east scotland and in the afternoon across parts of ireland, temperatures 15 to 22. when will things settle down? we are waiting for this area of high pressure which is trying to building through the weekend but it is taking
