the department for transport said it is "focused on minimising disruption for passengers this summer", and that as part of this, it was working with airports on when it could be appropriate to allow additional night flights, which would be subject to consultation. our business reporter noor nanji has more. we have already seen big queues at airports this summer. now come warnings of more disruption. with a new wave of flight cancellations expected to be announced next week. the cancellations are triggered by an amnesty on take—off and landing slots which ends this friday. it compounds existing problems. we are now ri . ht in compounds existing problems. we are now right in the _ compounds existing problems. we are now right in the midst _ compounds existing problems. we are now right in the midst of— compounds existing problems. we are now right in the midst of the _ compounds existing problems. we are now right in the midst of the peak- now right in the midst of the peak summer travel season but were still experiencing problems and lack of manpower not only for airlines but across airports, ground in some cases border control staff so the mix of high volumes and lack of
people as causing a tremendous dislocation at many airports. british airways services from heathrow are likely to bear the brunt of the cancellations. a spokesperson from the airline told the bbc that they welcome the new measures adding... add to that the threat of strikes and ba cabin and ground crews over a pay dispute. so what should you do if you are caught up in all of this? crucially, i know what my rights are if anything is cancelled and that is to get a replacement flight on the same day if there is anything available that will take me there at the airline's expense. and then furthermore, hotel accommodation if need be and compensation if it is the airline's fault which its technical issues or staff shortage, it generally is. in technical issues or staff shortage, it generally is-_ technical issues or staff shortage, it generally le— technical issues or staff shortage, it generally ia— it generally is. in europe, there is more bad news _ it generally is. in europe, there is

union who are employed by stagecoach in merseyside due to strike over pgy- in merseyside due to strike over pay. the first strike is expected for this coming monday and seven more are expected over the month of july. russian state media is reporting that two british men have been charged with "mercenary activities" by moscow—backed separatists in eastern ukraine. dylan healy is said to have been helping as a volunteer aid worker when he was taken prisoner in april. russia says andrew hill, from plymouth, surrendered this afternoon, a spokesman for the foreign office issued a statement. it said " "we condemn the exploitation of prisoners of war and civilians for political purposes and have raised this with russia. we are in constant contact with the government of ukraine on their cases and are fully supportive of ukraine in its efforts to get them released. dominik byrne is from the humanitarian aid agency the presidium network, which works on the ground with communities in war zones. he's been in contact
with dylan's family. of understand the process and are trust in the process. i do know that they're having regular conversations with both the british government and the red cross and the red cross as being really good at trying to monitor the situation the best that they can and they are actually trying to get access to dylan at the moment to sure his welfare is ok and being treated 0k. but of course they are very scared. they want their son home as quick as possible. and they are worried about the situation. our ukraine correspondentjoe inwood in kyiv had this update on the two britons captured by russian forces. so, it is most likely they are being held in the donetsk people's republic, one of the breakaway republics in the east of this country. if this follows the same pattern as it did for shaun pinner, aidan aslin and brahim saaudun,
the three men who were charged and sentenced to death, then they will be put in front of an unrecognised court, in a process which could last any length of time, really. but it is possible they will plead guilty, as the other three men did, despite the fact they were not fighting, or at least one of them was not fighting, for the ukrainians. but i think probably what we need to do is read behind what is going on here. there is a lot of speculation that actually this is being directed by the kremlin, and what they are trying to do is put these men's lives in danger as a sort of negotiating tactic. so, their families will be hoping that whatever the outcome of any trial, and we probably should expect that to happen, we will probably see a prisoner swap at some time. but as ever, these things are very uncertain. joe inwood in kyiv. a vigil will be held in east london today in memory of zara aleena — the 35—year—old solicitor who was killed while she walked home from a night out last weekend. zara's friends, family — and anyone who wishes
to join the event — will walk in silence along the same route which she took. a 29—year—old man has been charged with her murder. celestina olulode has more. zara aleena — described by herfamily as insightful, empathetic, independent and fearless. she had a really big heart. and so she would very easily connect with people's pain, very easily connect with their need, and she was always the bigger person. "i'll help you, i'll sort that out." her mother's only child, the 35—year—old was at the start of her legal career when her life ended suddenly. last weekend she was attacked on her way home in ilford,
east london. zara's aunt fara says she's speaking out to protect the rights of all women. this is the most horrific experience that we've had as a family, that we've experienced and that zara's experienced. and there's nothing that can change that for us. but there is something we can do. and that is to say that this shouldn't have happened. she shouldn't have had her entitlement to walk home taken away. zara's family have invited friends, loved ones and those affected to walk the io—minute journey home from where she was attacked. we'll never get through this. but it will help us. somehow, in some way, it will help us. celestina olulode, bbc news. a parliamentary watchdog is to examine allegations of sexual misconduct by the former conservative deputy chief whip, chris pincher.
the mp resigned from his role earlier this week after being accused of groping two men at a private members club, and has now been suspended from the conservative party. the party says it would not pre—judge the investigation and urged people to respect the process. our political correspondent helen catt has more in chris pincher�*s constituency in staffordshire this morning it was all quiet. chris pincher himself is not spoken publicly since he resigned as the deputy chief whip on thursday night after being accused of groping two men at a private club in london. he said in his resignation letter that he had drunk five too much and embarrassed himself. he remains the mp for tamworth and some constituents told us they were unhappy at his saviour. you make very disappointed in him because we have always voted tory and we always will, and i love

come round to a decision that many had felt was pretty inevitable. labour said it showed the prime minister had had to be dragged kicking and screaming to suspending chris pincher who has been one of his key allies. number ten insisted that it had acted swiftly as soon as a formal complaint had been it is the parliamentary watchdog which will examine the facts of the allegations but it has raised a lot more political questions for number ten. there's been a huge rise in the number of people checking bowel cancer symptoms on the nhs website, following the death of dame deborahjames.visits to the website increased from 2,000 on tuesday to 23,000 on wednesday. dame deborah had been living with the illness since 2016, and worked tirelessly to raise awareness of its symptoms — and reduce the embarrassment of discussing them. graham satchell reports. dame deborahjames dressed up as a poo, to raise awareness of the symptoms of bowel cancer. in posts on social media, she took people through the common signs. again and again, she urged anyone who had worries never to be embarrassed, and to see their gp. dame deborah died on tuesday. her tireless campaigning has had a remarkable impact. this morning, nhs england has revealed a tenfold increase
in traffic to their webpages about bowel cancer, up from an average of 2,000 a day to more than 23,000 on wednesday, the day after dame deborah died. deborah did the unthinkable, in getting people to talk about bowel cancer and encouraging people not to be embarrassed or prudish. so deborah was just an extraordinary spirit, full of courage and determination, to raise awareness about the importance of early detection, because generally if you detect cancer early, the chances of cure are much greater. in a statement, the health secretary for england, sajid javid, said: deb is sat next to me in a poo costume. are you going to wear that for the whole podcast? well, the problem is, because it's designed for a 6—year—old, i can't really breathe in it. deborah's last words, posted on instagram, were "check your poo,
it mightjust save your life." today shows the impact her words are already having, and the countless lives that will be saved as a result. graham satchell, bbc news. more than a million people are expected to gather to celebrate the lgbt+ community's annual pride march in london. it's the first time the event has taken place in the capital since the pandemic and is the 50th anniversary of the uk's first rally. 0ur lgbt and identity correspondent lauren moss is at hyde park corner, lauren. well, they might as well and truly under way. well, they might as well and truly underway. it well, they might as well and truly under way. it set up a little while ago under that archway there at hyde park corner led by the original founding members of pride from 1972, the gay liberation front. they led the gay liberation front. they led the way on a bus and they are being
followed by 30,000 people who will head down piccadilly, haymarket and the theatre district to trafalgar square which is where they started the march in 1972. at a time and they feared arrests just for kissing each other in public which they did 50 years ago is actually the location where it finished so this march is pain, edge to those places that they passed 50 years ago and you can see the crowd is very excited behind me. there are loads of people in fancy dress. it is a real explosion of colour. rainbow flags everywhere you look and after a few years away with a covered 19 pandemic there is no doubt about that that pride is back loud and proud. many posters here saying it is a celebration but it is also a protest for equality in the lgbt key community here and elsewhere. we caught up with siddique khan and wished him a happy pride and find out what it means to the capital to be hosting this event back here this weekend. it is be hosting this event back here this weekend. , ., ., , . ,,

important for people here to behave in a safe levels. if people have symptoms of covid take a test and don't comfort up if you think you have monkeypox check it out and don't come full stop understand how you can make yourself safe and other is really important rise to be her celebrating pride and also showing that we are allies to this really important community. i that we are allies to this really important community.- that we are allies to this really important community. i been speaking to the original — important community. i been speaking to the original members _ important community. i been speaking to the original members who _ important community. i been speaking to the original members who founded l to the original members who founded the first pride in 1972 people going to the first pride this year and there is a concern about how it has become corporate and commercial. how do we think we can get those big names and get the money in and have the events whilst also still standing for what it is supposed to at its heart? you make those veterans who first marched in 1972, it is on their shoulders we stand today to make the progress we've made as well. i think it is important to recognise that actually there is diversity within this community. it is not one view from this community. it is to listen and
understand what people want to recognise but anybody who is from this community should feel comfortable taking part in this parade but clearly it is expensive, there is more than 1.4 million people here today. that is four times the size of the mardi gras in sydney so we've got to recognise a difference of opinions but to make sure we can have a pie that is successful and as many people as possible feel included and feel that this is their day. they would like it to be bigger and say it is one of their smallest brides in a capital city. is there any opportunity in the coming years to expand that march with 30,000 people marching, some people have not been able to march this year were turned away? there are many people taking part in one form or another. i have been told it is possible, to break all records today. i know the rest of the world is looking at london and seeing us as a beacon of openness and inclusiveness and diversity of those who organise pride if they want to make the actual parade bigger, of course there are
challenges but opportunities as well for looking forward to today being a success and then we'll see what happens next year. the success and then we'll see what happens next year.— success and then we'll see what happens next year. the mayor of london talking _ happens next year. the mayor of london talking to _ happens next year. the mayor of london talking to our _ happens next year. the mayor of - london talking to our correspondent. the tech giant google says it will delete location data that shows when one of its users in the united states visits an abortion clinic — amid concerns information could be used in future prosecutions. it comes as protests have been taking place in across australia today — over last month's supreme court ruling overturning the constitutional right to abortion in the us. the suspected driver of a truck found abandoned in the us state of texas with dozens of bodies inside has been charged with migrant smuggling resulting in death. fifty— three people from mexico and central america lost their lives in the deadliest case of human smuggling in us history. officials say zamorano had been unaware of an air conditioning failure. he was found hiding in the bushes near the truck on monday. mexican officials say he initially tried to pass himself off as one of the survivors.

# hello, it's me # i was won... oh, i'm so happy to be here! an emotional adele playing at hyde park. # to go over... help me! her first full live show since 2017. # they say that time's supposed to heal you # but i ain't done much healing # hello from the other side! and the first after leaving thousands of fans disappointed after postponing a las vegas residency. tonight's verdict? she's the best we've ever seen, absolutely outstanding. amazing. amazing, amazing. delighted, it was brilliant. and the set, just — she did everything you ever wanted to hear. the performance was amazing, it was great. yep, her first concert. she loved it, didn't you? loved it! but tonight has been more than just an evening of adele. it's been a day—long celebration of women in music,
with an all—female lineup of supporting acts for one of the biggest musical events of the year. # when a woman wants her man from acts like gabrielle, whom adele adored growing up... # i'm telling you i got a master plan # you been on my mind for a while now # trying to get you off # �*cause this ain't right now ..to a collection of new artists like mahalia, who was delighted to be part of such a symbolic line—up. i would say in the past a lot of festival line—ups have been pretty much male—dominated, and i think we are seeing a shift. but i think we as women also have to be a part of the change, we have to put ourselves forward to do those bills, to do those lineups, and i think you can really see that we're all trying to put ourselves in everyone's faces. will it make a big difference, do you think? i hope so, i really do hope so. because there's a demand for it, there's women like myself who want to see other women on stage, and so many other people that want to see their favourite female acts as well.
so hopefully it does, yeah. # tainted view of us it's an issue that has become more prominent in recent years... # trying! ..with many applauding what adele has done on her return to live performing after a long five years for her fans. # we're both none the wiser # lizo mzimba, bbc news, hyde park. now it's time for a look at the weather with ben it is looking pretty mixed out there. just as it has been, really, through the past few days. a mix of sunshine and showers and some of the showers are actually pretty heavy at the moment. this is the earlier radar picture and you can see hefty gambles at the moment. this band of rain sinking south eastwards. it
