The Chancellor speaks out against Cabinet members briefing


Philip Hammond has told some colleagues to focus on their jobs,


instead of trying to undermine him because of his views on Brexit.


I am not going to talk about what comes out of a private cabinet


meeting. Five colleagues have done. They should not have done because


cabinet meetings he should be a private space in which we have a


serious discussion. We'll be looking at the implications


of the divisions at Roger Federer the record breaker -


the first man to win a Wimbledon If you believe you can go really


firing your life. I think I did that and I am happy I kept unbelieving


and dreaming, and even I am today. It is fantastic. -- I kept


believing. Tougher punishments for acid attacks


are to be considered by the government after hundreds


of incidents so far this year. The Chancellor, Philip Hammond,


has said Cabinet colleagues who have been briefing the media against him


should instead focus After newspaper reports


about discussions around the Cabinet table,


he said noise was being generated by people opposed


to his focus on jobs He also addressed claims he'd


described public sector Here's our political


correspondent, Eleanor Garnier. He's the man of the moment, though


not for the reasons he'd like. For the second time this week,


the Chancellor has found himself defending private


comments in public. This time accused of saying public


sector workers are overpaid. I have told you, I'm not


going to talk about what They shouldn't have done


frankly because Cabinet meetings are supposed to be


a private space in which we have a You would expect me to put any


discussion about public sector pay in the context of the


fiscal and economic situation that Among the millions of public sector


workers, it's teachers out protesting today,


plus others like police officers and nurses who faced


a 1% pay cap since 2012. Celebrating workers' rights


at a festival in Dorset, the Labour leader accused the Chancellor


of being out of touch. I think he's living


on a different planet to many Public sector workers have had


frozen wages for the past seven Health workers in reality have


had a 14% cut in pay. Many teachers don't stay


on in the profession because they can't afford to find


somewhere to live on the salaries they get and the strain


they are under because of shortages. The Chancellor hinted today


there could be better news for public sector workers


at the budget later this year, but in an unusual move,


he slapped down Cabinet rivals Some of the noise is generated


by people who are not happy with the agenda that I have,


over the last few weeks, tried to advance of ensuring that we achieve


a Brexit which is focused on protecting our economy,


protecting our jobs and making sure we can


have continued rising living


standards in the future. One of the Cabinet's prominent


Leave campaigners, the International Trade Secretary,


denied being behind the briefings. I absolutely deplore


leaks from the Cabinet. I think my colleagues should be very


quiet, stick to their own departmental duties, and I think


that the public expect us to be disciplined and effective,


our backbenchers are furious and the only people smiling at this will be


in Berlin and Paris. Public sector workers


continue to make their As it seems do members


of the Cabinet, who, with the Prime Minister's authority


in tatters, are in no mood to do as they are


told. How much should we make of what


Philip Hammond has said today? The knives are out for the Chancellor


and there are a number of factors playing into this. The row over


public sector pay itself. The Chancellor is intent on the


Government holding its nerve and dealing with the country byes-mac


debt, yet a handful of ministers have made clear they think the


party's position on pay damaged them during the election. But it is


decisions on what type of Brexit we end up with, something that will


affect generations and generations to come, that have a significant


part of the briefings against the Chancellor. With opposition inside


the Cabinet to his insistence that jobs in the economy, rather than


immigration, should take priority during the Brexit negotiations.


Added that the Prime Minister's own weakness and the jostling and


speculation and party leadership and you have got the key ingredients for


a pretty big row. But Conservative backbenchers do not want a


leadership contest and as they prepare the summer break, they are


calling for calm. You mentioned Brexit negotiations would restart


tomorrow morning. Today, the Chancellor touched on annex it built


from the that financial is adamant that Britain will have to pay when


leaving the E will be -- EU will be subject discussion. Boris Johnson


said Brussels to go and whistle if it wanted Britain to pay a hefty


fine. Today, the Chancellor said Britain would paste debts if they


had been verified. There is a key issue around European citizens here


and British citizens abroad. As the Brexit secretary prepares for talks,


he has called for both sides to get down to business. A sign I think


that initial pleasantries over and detox have entered a far more


serious stage. -- and the talks. Roger Federer made history on Centre


Court today, taking the men's single's title at Wimbledon


for a record eighth time. He beat Croatia's Marin


Cilic in straight sets. It's Federer's 19th Grand Slam title


and his second since returning from a six-month break


at the beginning of the year, Mr Cilic, meet the greatest


man to play tennis. Everyone knew the status


of Roger Federer and We had seen his magnificent seven


titles at Wimbledon. Now the unique,


all-encompassing eighth. Marin Cilic of Croatia began


the match trying to be positive, Even when you think you have got


Federer beat, assumed In the first set alone, Federer


displayed his full repertoire. Even when Cilic got his serve


in, there was Federer. The body language of Cilic varied


from anger to something Midway through the second set,


we wondered if he would A blistered foot did not help


but the key factor was Federer. In the final, Cilic won eight games,


Federer has won eight titles. He took the trophy


on its familiar tour. They are waiting


beneath the balcony. As we watch Roger Federer back


at the summit, let's remember that just last year,


he had months away from tennis. There was a knee injury, surgery,


recovery, we were contemplating You know, I always believed that


I could maybe come back and do it again and if you believe,


you can go really far in your life. I kept believing and dreaming


and here I am today. With 19 Grand Slams,


Federer is still well behind Look out for her when she


returns from pregnancy. But in the male game,


Federer is on his own. What if Rod Laver had not


been banned in the 1960s He would surely have won more


than his 11 Grand Slams. Bjorn Borg won five consecutive


Wimbledons but his whole career Pete Sampras won seven times


at Wimbledon, supreme on grass, he never managed the


French title on clay. So, if nobody in tennis quite


compares, is Federer If you compare him to any other


athlete in the world, You talk about Formula 1, running,


basketball, football... I don't think there is anyone


like Roger Federer at the moment. With four children at 35,


Roger Federer won his eighth title Defying time is not simply


restricted to science fiction. Thousands of opposition


demonstrators have gathered outside the Polish parliament to protest


about legislation that gives politicians control over the body


that appoints judges. Critics say the new law -


proposed by the ruling Law and Justice party -


erodes the independence of the judiciary and


undermines democracy. Tougher sentences for people


convicted of acid attacks are to be considered as part


of a government review. The latest official figures suggest


there were more than 400 assaults involving corrosive


substances in England and Wales This report from our home


affairs correspondent, Danny Shaw, contains some


distressing images from the start. This is 21-year-old

by wonder and flowers. Now anyone who comes here can


experience every curve, But only one could really


feel how Clark felt. Lewis Hamilton certainly


started with the same view. Kimi Raikkonen tried


to overtake, but not so fast. Sebastian Vettel, leader


in the standings, had been caught by Max Verstappen,


but charged back at him He wants to play bumper cars or


something. Vettel eventually passed him


but Hamilton was over the horizon. The only question was


whether he could get in and out Kimi Raikkonen was beaten


by Valtteri Bottas for second and Vettel's Championship lead


was about to dramatically deflate. Lewis Hamilton could hardly


have had a better day. It feels amazing to be up here. I am


so proud to see his flags everywhere. We support this weekend


has been immense and I am really proud that I can do this for you


all. Thank you so much of this support. Pushing us. The team did


exceptionally well this weekend. It is the perfect weekend for us.

Only one point stands between Hamilton and Vettel now.


Sebastien, beware, he is catching you.

England have been set a rack of breaking target of 474 to win the


second Test match after South Africa continued to dominate on day three


at Trent Bridge. Hashim Amla top scored on 87 and looking to level


the series, South Africa declared on 343-9. England's openers had to


survive and nervous few overs, closing on 1-0.


After Roger Federer's historic Wimbledon win, British success in


the next doubles when Jamie Murray partner Martin Hingis to victory 20


years after she won her only singles title there. The defending


champions in straight sets. And there was more British success in


the wheelchair doubles. A fourth successive title for the spear,


beating the Dutch opponents. Our correspondent


Andy Swiss is there. The 2012 poster boy, now a man on a


mission, Jonny Peacock hoping to give London another golden night.


Peacock had a point to prove. He missed the last World Championships


through injury but with his home crowd roaring him and this time


nothing would deny him. COMMENTATOR: Peacock is going to take the gold.


He had hoped for a world record, not quite but on the track where he made


his name the double Paralympic champion is now against world


champion. I know I was in good form but when it comes to the final I


don't care about times, it would be a great cherry on top of rising but


at the end of the day people care about medals and that is what I be


able to keep for ever. And successful and familiar face, Aled


Davies winning his third world title in the discus. Again London proving


the perfect stage. In fact after three days, the British team is top


of the medals table and with a week still to go there should be plenty


more to come. Thank you, Andy. That's it from me, but the BBC Sport


website has much more - including how Callum Shinkwin lost


the Scottish Open in a play-off, and A woman is to play the title role


in Doctor Who for the first time Jodie Whittaker,


who starred in the ITV drama Broadchurch, will take


over from Peter Capaldi. She will first appear


as the 13th Doctor in this After half a year of speculation


from fans, not just about who the new Doctor might be, but whether it


would be a man or a woman... Confirmation that the time travel


show is making history. Jodie Whittaker says


she is overwhelmed as a feminist, as a woman,


and as an actor, to be cast It's a role that


demands a huge range of emotion, something Jodie has often


demonstrated from early appearances Me brain don't kick


in until Wednesday when From now on, you don't say


nothing in front of Pete. To playing a mother whose son has


been murdered, in crime A show in which she appeared


opposite a Doctor Who And a former


Doctor in David Tennant. Casting strong female


leads has been a popular strategy with audiences


in films like Star Wars and on TV in Do you think all fans


will welcome a female Doctor? I think most will, I think


some won't be sure, Who is all about change, and this


is potentially a really big, With the BBC having


committed itself to greater diversity, it will be hoping


that today's announcement will not only excite viewers,


but will also clearly demonstrate that the time


travel show has moved firmly That's all from me,


stay with us on BBC1, it's time for the news
