hello and welcome. president putin is expected to hold a ceremony in the next few hours to declare that four ukrainian regions willjoin russia. the kremlin says luhansk, donetsk, zaporizhzhia and kherson voted to join russia in recent, self—styled referendums. but ukraine and the west have dismissed the votes as a sham. ukraine insists its goal of fully liberating the country will never change, regardless of any statements from moscow. our ukraine correspondent, james waterhouse, has been to one village close to the front line, as well as where russia now sees as a new border.
there aren't cues to the front line from this side. war with russia is trying to cause new water. it feels like driving into a vacuum. devoid of communities but not damaged. in the village here, it's mostly women and not many. the men and children have left now. life 11 miles from the enemy is not easy. translation: miles from the enemy is not easy. tuna/mom- miles from the enemy is not easy. translation: there should be a free and _ easy. translation: there should be a free and independent - be a free and independent ukraine. we didn't attack anyone, didn't hurt anyone. and don't want anything. we want to live the way we did before. that was until the village became regularly shoulder. this person only recently able to return home, or what's left of it. the charred remains of a

fears are growing that there may have been many deaths: at least ten have been recorded since the storm struck. president biden said ian could prove to be the deadliest hurricane in florida's history. it is expected to crash into south carolina on friday. our north america correspondent, john sudworth, reports from fort myers. florida had been told to brace for a life—threatening event and the city of fort myers boats were piled on top of each other, parts of the harbour pushed up onto the shore. with the biggest risk coming from the storm surge, well over six feet in places, that left homes and businesses quickly flooded.
you're looking at a storm that's changed the character of a significant part of our state. i mean, this is going to require years of effort. some chose to ignore the evacuation warnings, despite the authorities making it clear the hurricane would put emergency help beyond reach. this is a storm surge that we talked about, ian fits the pattern of increasingly powerful hurricanes in recent years as a result of warming sea temperatures. scientists monitoring them say man—made climate change is having an effect. whoa! today's flight was certainly the roughest that i've been on in my six years of doing this. the worst of the onslaught may now be over, but for the state of florida, the task

government. forecast of uk's economic outlook are usually published through major financial announcements. lejarraga sessions ministers were trying to avoid scrutiny and that has, in part, driven lack of confidence in the markets. now the opr, it's costing methods and forecasts are seen by many as central to the plan to restore stability. but in a series of bbc interviews yesterday, the prime minister seemed keener to talk about cutting taxes and capping energy bills than surging mortgage costs. it sounds like you are seeing prices, what crisis? �* ., ., crisis? i'm not saying that all. i crisis? i'm not saying that all. i think _ crisis? i'm not saying that all. i think we _ crisis? i'm not saying that all. i think we are - crisis? i'm not saying that all. i think we are a - crisis? i'm not saying that all. i think we are a very l all. i think we are a very serious situation, a global crisis brought about by the aftermath of covid and putin's invasion of ukraine. i completely understand that people are concerned but it is very important that we have an independent monetary policy run by the bank of england. more than 1,000 —

the main story this hour: as russia prepares to announce the annexation of occupied regions, the us says it will never recognise its claims to ukrainian territory. let's stay with that story. president biden has warned russia that the united states will never recognise its claims to ukrainian territory. mr biden accused russia of pursuing imperial ambitions and called the referendums it staged in occupied areas an absolute sham. at the same time, the un security council will vote on what they are going to do about the referendums in russian—held areas of ukraine. our russia editor steve rosenberg reports. and a warning — it contains some graphic details. for months, warfelt so farfrom russia's capital. it's feeling much closer now. moscow mobilised.
the special operation advertised on bus stops and billboards. russia calls them heroes, but it needs more, so more men are ordered to the call—up centres and sent to ukraine. conditions are basic. these draftees have no beds. these do, sort of. and he says his group is being sent straight to ukraine without any military training. and the president? he's escalating this conflict. tomorrow, vladimir putin is expected to start the annexation of 15% of ukrainian territory. there's little excitement about that on the streets of moscow. i feel negative about it because it's the territory of ukraine. i think it is historically russian territory.
i think it's a total disaster, not only for ukraine, - but also for the russia. what's more, the kremlin call—up has sparked widespread fear. in all the years i've been covering russia, in all the places i've been, there's one phrase more than any other i've heard from people here — "we must avoid war." this country knows very well the cost of war. millions of people were killed here fighting nazi germany, and yet today, the russian leadership is calling up and sending its citizens to the front line and annexing large parts of its neighbour. and look what can happen to those who oppose war — like artem, who read out an anti—war poem. police raided his flat and the nightmare began. artem's fiancee, sasha, was there when the police burst translation: they dragged me
across the floor by my hair. - they started super—gluing stickers to my face. they threatened to glue my mouth up. then i heard the beating from the room where artem was. they forced him to undress. i heard how they were talking about raping him. they filmed everything they did to artem. they grabbed me by the hair and showed me a photo of him naked and beaten up, covered in blood. russia's invasion is having devastating consequences for ukraine and for russia, too. steve rosenberg, bbc news, moscow. the first coins featuring king charles iii have been unveiled by the royal mint. a special commemorative crown and a 50p will be the first coins to feature the king's portrait. the 50 pence coin is expected

it's one of eight aston martin replicas that were made especially for no time to die and used in matera on location in italy for the chase scene, so it is one of the stunt cars with some gadgets on it as well. and so we come to the sensational aston martin db5 replica stunt car. there was plenty of interest with bids coming in from all around the world. eventually the price reaching, if not an all—time high, but close enough. 2,400,000, this bidder has it, is against you in the uae, if you want to come back in, last chance, the cameras are up. it's not quite gone. it is now. sold to you. add on commission, and this rather battered stunt car sold for more than $3 million.
standby the business. hello. well, it's fairly clear and calm across most of the uk right now, but later on, we are expecting wind and rain to sweep right across the country. a big autumn low is on the way, and here it is on the weather map. a lot of isobars there, and that does mean some very strong winds, especially in north—western parts of the uk. let's have a look at the forecast for the early hours.
you can see that broad band of rain a good squeeze in the isobars here. and really quite chilly. mph in the western isles of scotland, towards the south—west as well. now, here's that band of rain around lunchtime, and then later on in the afternoon, it'll reach other parts of the uk. but the weather will improve out towards the north—west later on in the afternoon. within the band of rain, it'll be very windy and temperatures will be 12—14 celsius. heavy in east anglia and the south—east, by the time we get to early saturday. and here is saturday. that low pressure is very broad and it's still driving our weather. in fact, the winds will remain brisk on saturday, although not quite as strong, but they will blow in some showers off the atlantic. they will be most frequent out towards the north—west here. hail and thunder is quite possible. in southern parts of the uk, given a bit of sunshine, it actually shouldn't be too bad at all.
another weather front to just brush southern parts of the uk. some uncertainty exactly how quickly that rain will clear away on sunday, but the thinking is by the time we get to the afternoon, most of us should have a dry day. of the united states, again, is likely to cause problems and heavy rain inland as well. bye— bye.
