75% of the ukrainian demand for electricity has been already met by the supply which has been restored in many regions and cities of ukraine. today we got to know that the city of kherson is on the grid again and that's very important news. people were cut off from early electricity supply, heating and water for weeks after the liberation while the retreating of the russian forces that have destroyed all three main electricity supply lines around kherson. for example, i know such stories from the city of kherson where doctors and nurses and maternity units had to boil water and pour it in bottles and bring these hot bottles to their patients, mothers and newborns to warm them up.
now the hospitals in kherson and in the region of kherson will be the first recipients who will get this electricity back these days and then there are potential blocks of residential houses and private houses in kherson who might get the electricy supply that is absolutely essential. as for kyiv, yesterday at night, finally, many residential areas in the eastern bank of the ukrainian capital got access to electricity after about 30 hours without heat or electricity and water supply. so it's very important to understand that people could not call their relatives, families and friends when the electricity is off so it's very difficult psychologically when you cannot call your family to ask them what is happening to them and where they are.

"this mountain has fallen on the homes that are no longer there," he says. houses were engulfed with people trapped beneath the mud, dozens of firefighters helped
evacuate those they could. a rescue and a search for those still missing. the fear is that as more areas are unearthed, the number of confirmed victims could rise. for the islanders, their tranquillity was shaken by a nightmare. translation: there are some cards facin: translation: there are some cards facing upwards _ translation: there are some cards facing upwards and _ translation: there are some cards facing upwards and have _ translation: there are some cards facing upwards and have shifted - translation: there are some cards facing upwards and have shifted to i facing upwards and have shifted to the side. looking at them, you can't explain how it was possible —— cars. vehicles were tossed aside and battered, hurled by a wave of mud into the waves of the ocean. houses have been cut off, some without power. the authorities calling on residents to stay inside. ischia's narrow streets are caked in the chaos, many of its homes, illegally built over the years, unstable and vulnerable. now an anxious wait for the weather to lift to see the extent of the damage wreaked, turning ischia from island
idyll into rivers of mud. the rain has finally stopped and we drove through a deluge coming up here from the far south of italy. clear away that will help the rescue effort and ease access across from naples to the island because fairies tonight are still suspended on that route, and the latest figures we have our one person died and ii have our one person died and 11 people still missing —— ferries. but the worry is as more mud is clear, what or who will be underneath. mark lowen, many thanks. the uncle of a five year old boy who died on monday says he wants answers from the health secretary about his nephew's treatment. yusuf mahmud nazir died from pneumonia but the family say he was sent away from rotherham general hospital because of a lack of beds. rotherham nhs foundation trust has offered its condolences to yusuf�*s family and have started

molly russell, the 14—year—old from harrow in london who died aged 17, she took her own life after viewing content about self—harm and suicide on social media and her family have tirelessly campaigned to improve online safety and they have responded to this update by saying yes, it is significant, but there is a huge grey area, as always the devil is in the detail and they worry doesn't go far enough because they say the harmful but legal content is what did the most damage to molly's mental health and they say that hopefully there will be no more delays to this process for the sake of other young people. laura trant, many thanks. a damning report on the culture of london fire brigade has found that it's "institutionally misogynist and racist". the independent review was carried out after a black trainee firefighter took his own life. the author of the report says he has "no doubt" similar problems exist in other fire brigades
across the country. london fire brigade is promising immediate changes to its disciplinary processes. louisa pilbeam reports. as wildfires broke out in london this summer, firefighters were praised for protecting the public. but they haven't protected their own, according to a report into london fire brigade, which found it is institutionally racist, misogynistic and has a bullying culture. i sat with a very senior female officer who said to me in tears that whenever she goes into a dangerous incident, she's almost thinking, "will the men around me protect me, given how much they have treated me as dirt back at the station?" that was not one person — that was many, many people. the report found example after example of abuse at all levels. incidents included a black firefighter having a noose above his locker, a muslim firefighter bullied
over his faith with bacon put in his sandwiches, female colleagues being groped and crew members finding their helmets filled with urine. the brigade's commissioner andy rowe said he was deeply sorry for the harm that had been caused. said he was deeply sorry to hear those stories, which so grossly undermine all that we stand for, is genuinely heartbreaking. i know that so many of my people will be appalled by what they have heard and therefore, we must face it head—on with the same courage to resolve these issues. i don't think i can read this report and see a future where some people aren't held accountable for their actions and dismissed as a result, the examples are too horrifying. london fire brigade is the uk's busiest fire and rescue service, employing more than 5,000 people. their union responded with a statement.
the london mayor has also demanded change. this report has to be a watershed moment where we get rid of the institutional racism, homophobia and discrimination that exists in our fire service. the damning report comes as london fire brigade faces criticism for its handling of the grenfell tower fire, but the brigade have confirmed immediate changes to training and disciplinary procedures. louisa pilbeam, bbc news. rail passengers faced disruption today as thousands of train drivers went on strike. 11 companies were affected — with limited or no services. the walkout, by members of the aslef union, is part of a long running dispute over pay. with all the sport now, here's olly foster at the bbc sport centre. good evening. the former scotland rugby union international doddie weir has

there's nothing we can do for you. "there's your care nurse. cheerio.

don't forget to enjoy the guinness and red wine along the way — just never in the same glass. it summed up his zest for life. doddie weir, a man whose charity was matched only by his charisma and his courage. lionel messi's argentina could have been knocked out of the world cup this evening. it was a nervy night in qatar but they beat mexico 2—0 to keep themselves alive in their group. our sports editor dan roan was at the lusail stadium. messi! for all that their talisman has achieved in the game, glory on football's greatest stage has proved elusive for lionel messi. argentina's fans aware if they lost to mexico, he and his team would be out of this, his final world cup. this felt like the tournament's biggest occasion yet and in a raucous atmosphere, it was clear that this was going to be a scrap.

hello, it's not been a pleasant day today. grey skies and outbreaks of rain. a bit better tomorrow but for the rest of this evening and overnight we can expect more rain. having said that. later in the night the weather should start to improve across northern and western areas of the uk. this is the weather front that crossing the country right now. that is the centre of low pressure that weather front will sweep over us through the course of this evening and the first part of the night. and then the early hours of sunday morning we will see the weather improving across the western and northwestern part of the uk. this is what it looks like over the next few hours. the rain will not clear east anglia and the southeast. that's where it was stalled early on sunday morning. elsewhere, where it is dry on sunday morning it will be a little colder. 6 degrees celsius and more like 11 in the london area. this weather front will drag its heels. it's what we call a waving front, it wobbles a little and does not want to clear away towards the east. so that doesn't mean that
in east anglia and the southeast. in fact, probably from central to southern england and possibly even into lincolnshire a bit of uncertainty here. it could be raining through most of the day and certainly in kent you are in for a wet day. elsewhere across the country it would be a bright day with scattered clouds and occasional showers in the west. it ruled will remain blustery. not particularly cold though. tomorrow evening you can see that rain still in kent and sussex. just about clearing the coast of east anglia out in the west we will have more showers. monday and tuesday we will see high—pressure building in from the south west. this ridge of high—pressure means that things dry out. the weather front, or remnants of it, still out in the north sea. but this ridge builds in and that will keep things settled at least for most of us on monday, certainly by tuesday. most of us are in that drier, clear weather. i say clearer, there will be sunshine around on monday. and indeed on tuesday. in places it would be quite foggy, and murky in the morning. where the fog persist it could end up being pretty cold. i think, on balance it is around eight to 10 degrees as far
