from football at the age of 30. the former arsenal midfielder burst on to the scene making his debut for the club atjust 16. he went on to make 197 appearances for the gunners and win two fa cups. however, injuries and form have seen him struggle in recent years and in an instagram post, he said his career had been "slipping away in recent times." he retires having won 3a caps for england. that's all the sport for now. i will have more for you later. let's go back to the news that keir starmer and angela rayner have been cleared of breaking lockdown rules. it follows an inquiry into an event at a labour mp's office in april 2021. in a statement, the police said there was "no case to answer" citing an exemption to lockdown rules for "reasonably necessary work".
1:40 pm
there is political significance to this because both sir keir and his deputy had said that if they were fined, they would resign. we have had a tweet from sir keir starmer in reaction to that news. let's just show it to you. i have always said no rules were broken when i was in durham. the police have completed their investigation and agree there is no case to answer. for me, this was always a matter of principle. honesty and a integrity matter. you will always get that from me. that is sir keir starmer�*s reaction that he and his deputy have been cleared ijy he and his deputy have been cleared by durham police. another line of breaking news coming from canterbury crown court, which is that callum wheeler who is 22 has been handed a life sentence for the murder of 53—year—old pcso julia james. a life sentence with a minimum term of 37
1:41 pm
years at canterbury crown court. that is callum wheeler sentenced to life for the murder of police community support officerjulia james. callum wheeler who is 22 years old, sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term to be served of 37 years. we will have more details on that sentencing at canterbury crown court a little bit later on. let's get more now on the assassination of japan's former prime minister shinzo abe. mr abe was known for his hawkish policies and his signature economic strategy of abenomics. nicknamed the prince, abe came from political royalty as the son of former foreign minister shintaro abe and grandson of former prime minister nobusuke kishi. gareth barlow looks back on his life, and a warning, gareth's report contains some flash photography.
1:42 pm
he was japan's longest—serving post—war prime minister and for shinzo abe, a career in politics was surely his destiny. by the time he was just ten years old, his grandfather and great uncle had both held the post that he would one day secure for himself. born in 1954, by the late 1970s, the young shinzo abe left university in tokyo to study political science in the united states. on his return tojapan, two years later, he joined kobe steel and shortly after worked for his father, who was, by that time, the country's foreign minister. it was in 1993 that shinzo abe won his first parliamentary seat and he would later go on to hold a series of government posts. domestically, as prime minister, he sought to bolster national identity and historical traditions. under his watch, the position of emperor in civic life was reaffirmed and he sought, albeit unsuccessfully, to revise the country's post—war constitution. but it was his economic plan,
1:43 pm
or abenomics, that was perhaps the most high—profile policy of his time in office. 0n the international stage, shinzo abe took a tough stance towards north korea, avoided a trade war with the united states under donald trump, and signed a host of partnerships with regional and western allies. he also worked to strengthen japan's defences and boost military spending. despite winning general elections in 2014 and 2017 with sizable majorities, shinzo abe's personal approval rating suffered in the latter years of his time in office. a series of damaging corruption scandals and a mixed record in confronting the covid—19 crisis damaged his reputation. japan's hosting of the delayed olympic games was unpopular among many in the country, as the world continued to grapple with covid—19. and a visit to a memorial that honours japan's military dead, which includes the remains of people
1:44 pm
convicted of war crimes during the second world war, drew anger from regional neighbours. in 2020, the then 65—year—old announced he would resign from his post as prime minister for health reasons. for many years, he suffered from inflammatory bowel disease but with the condition worsening, prime minister abe said it was time to step down, sincerely apologising to the people of japan for doing so. translation: | needed to fight. against the disease and be treated. and still i have to make important political decisions. i cannot make any mistakes in terms of important decision—making. i cannot do this and so i made the decision not to continue myjob as the prime minister. after a lifetime in politics, shinzo abe will be remembered for not only his historic tenure and time in office, but also for ushering in a new era in both japanese politics and public life.
1:45 pm
a couple of lines coming in from writers about the assassination. they are saying that the police in the city of nara have searched the suspect�*s house and found more guns in the suspect was not house. that search is continuing and the suspect they are saying has admitted to the shooting, the assassination of shinzo abe, the formerjapanese prime minister. that news just in from japan, that the suspect has admitted to the shooting according to the police being quoted by reuters and has also found more guns in the suspect�*s house. ex—fifa president, sepp blatter, and the former uefa chief, michel platini, have both been acquitted by swiss judges in their trial for corruption. prosecutors claimed that a $2 million payment mr blatter made to the president of the european football authority was illegal. they were banned from football activity in 2015 when criminal proceedings were first opened against mr blatter. arriving for the hearing at the court today, blatter insisted
1:46 pm

1:47 pm
infected with the virus last week. now, with the race to become the next conservative leader now under way, will the party be able to hang onto the former red wall seats in the midlands? james bovil has been gauging opinion in dudley. good afternoon. welcome to dudley market. we're in the heart of dudley town centre here and this is part of the dudley north constituency, which voted conservative for the first time in 2019 when borisjohnson became prime minister. so, now that borisjohnson has resigned, i've been asking people here whether the events of the past week have influenced how they'll vote in future. we voted him in, but i'm afraid, at the moment, i wouldn't vote any of the conservatives back in, because i don't think there's anybody that can replace him at the moment. borisjohnson has done really well for the country, but he couldn't keep telling lies as party after party after party
1:48 pm
and letting the people down. people make mistakes and i think a lot of pressure gets put - on people in the mp world. i think all mp5 make a decision- and we've got to stopjust pointing the blame at one person. i always vote labour because they've been good so far. yeah, and conservativeas, to be honest, i didn't see the improvement with them. not at all. we're always voted conservative, always. and i think boris will be back. if boris was still in, - i'd probably vote again. know what i mean? but as the conservative party - as a whole, because they don't stick together, they all went against him. so whoever becomes the next conservative leader will have a tough task on their hands to regain the trust of voters here in dudley. i'll have much more reaction from right across the black country on midlands today at 6:30p.m.
1:49 pm
across the country, people have been digesting news of boris johnson's resignation. jayne mccubbin has been to the lancashire town of garstang, which falls within defence secretary ben wallace's constituency. resigned? carol... honestly? ..was stunned. i cannot believe it. is that right? you're winding me up! val chuffed. yay! we don't talk about politics. you wanna hit the pub again, don't ya? yeah. the pub might get frisky for this lot... take care! ..because pals val and dot might be smiling, but they do not see eye to eye. we only have a fool running the country at the present. i know, but who else would have done what he has done — covid, brexit? - who else got all that? no-one _ the last few years of pandemic politics have had all the stomach churning turns of a blackpool big dipper, as have the last 48 hours in westminster. enough to make you giddy. a lot of people like borisjohnson here, they liked the wit. i thought he was a charismatic person. i did like him. but, you know, there's only so many

1:51 pm
no, i don't think we do. i i feel completely let down. but in the market where mark has worked for 30 years, we chat aboutjohnson's legacy. levelling up. did you see any evidence of that here in blackpool? you can't level up in two or three years, can you? you know, these things take time. things don't happen overnight. borisjohnson was the best around. show me who else is going to do it. you don't think that person exists? i've not seen him yet. johnson said it was eccentric for his party to boot him out, and when he directed thanks to those who'd voted him in, he was thanking people like bernadette. and it's the first time i voted conservative. was it? yeah. because you voted for boris? i voted for boris rather than... the party. ..the party, yeah. so, bernadette, the question is... but... would i vote... will you vote for them again? again? i don't know. so what next? 0ver blackpool's border in bolton, the fylde golf club chat is aboutjust that.
