New laws so you can find out just how much information

:00:00.:00:08.

From social media - to online shoppping and loyalty cards -

:00:09.:00:12.

companies will be forced to reveal what they know

:00:13.:00:14.

It will give more control and more power to consumers and citizens

:00:15.:00:22.

to have a say on how their personal data is being used.

:00:23.:00:27.

People will also be able to ask companies to delete personal data -

:00:28.:00:30.

We'll be asking how effective it will be?

:00:31.:00:33.

America flexes its military muscles as North Korea says tough

new sanctions won't stop it developing its nuclear programme.

:00:38.:00:42.

Why are women struggling to have children finding it increasingly

:00:43.:00:45.

difficult to get IVF treatment on the NHS in England?

:00:46.:00:50.

It is hugely unfair, it deals a crushing blow

:00:51.:00:52.

to people who are already at a significant life low.

:00:53.:00:56.

We hear from the 20-year-old British model who says she was kidnapped,

:00:57.:00:59.

drugged and held for nearly a week in Italy.

or face the threat of big fines. This is clearly going to create a

:04:19.:04:27.

lot of work for the companies involved but why is it happening

:04:28.:04:31.

now? It is happening now because last year the European Union agreed

:04:32.:04:36.

a massive new data protection law, the general data protection

:04:37.:04:41.

regulation and Britain is effectively cutting and pasting that

:04:42.:04:45.

and putting it into UK law. We could have decided to go our own way and

:04:46.:04:49.

do something different but the government has looked at what is a

:04:50.:04:52.

gold rush in the use of data right now and it has become a very

:04:53.:04:55.

valuable resource and it wants companies to be able to trade freely

the EU is doing, but it means lots of work for organisations big and

:07:43.:07:46.

way of stopping it happening is to be ready,

:07:47.:07:50.

and that's why these guys practise and practise and practise,

on this side, and I believe North Korea does as well,

:08:08.:08:09.

no one wants war. Should deterrence fail, though,

:08:10.:08:15.

we have to be ready to go. As these A10s roll down the runway

:08:16.:08:28.

for another practice flight, they're just 48 miles

from the North Korean border. The same distance as

:08:32.:08:33.

London to Brighton. And South Korea, the enemy,

:08:34.:08:35.

is never far away. Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, BBC News,

:08:36.:08:39.

Osan Airbase, South Korea. Couples struggling to start a family

:08:40.:08:44.

face a postcode lottery when trying That's according to the charity

:08:45.:08:46.

Fertility Network UK, which says that in several areas,

:08:47.:08:54.

there's been a cut in the number of IVF cycles offered or a reduction

:08:55.:08:57.

in the age at which women qualify Since the start of the year,

:08:58.:09:01.

IVF treatment has been halted Richard and Terry know all about the

:09:02.:09:16.

emotional highs and lows. They were allowed one round of IVF through the

:09:17.:09:20.

NHS which failed. They then had to go private for the next one and

:09:21.:09:25.

their baby son was born. So they experienced the joy of parenthood,

:09:26.:09:29.

though Richard feels it was unfair that while they had to pay others in

:09:30.:09:33.

neighbouring areas would get more than one free IVF cycle. We know how

:09:34.:09:38.

it feels to have a happen to you and that's why we think it's absolutely

:09:39.:09:43.

outrageous that the postcode lottery for IVF treatment even exists,

:09:44.:09:48.

because it is hugely unfair, it deals a crushing blow to people who

:09:49.:09:53.

are already at a significant life low. Health regulators say the NHS

:09:54.:09:57.

should provide up to three cycles of IVF for women aged up to 40.

:09:58.:10:03.

The latest figures compiled by fertility campaigners highlight the

:10:04.:10:07.

extent of the IVF lottery. Of the local commissioning groups who pay

:10:08.:10:11.

for health care in England, 129, more than half, now offer just one

:10:12.:10:16.

cycle of IVF and five areas in the Southeast including Croydon and

:10:17.:10:20.

parts of Essex and Norfolk don't offer any. The NHS in Scotland,

:10:21.:10:25.

meanwhile, offers three cycles to women who need it up to the age of

:10:26.:10:31.

40. In Wales, women can expect two rounds of treatment, while in

:10:32.:10:34.

Northern Ireland it's just one for those who are eligible.

:10:35.:10:37.

Some doctors in the field argue there is too much variation and that

:10:38.:10:43.

some NHS managers are ignoring national guidelines drawn up by

:10:44.:10:45.

regulators. They recommended three cycles of IVF

:10:46.:10:50.

treatment, full cycles for couples or individuals who need fertility

:10:51.:10:54.

treatment. The fact this has not been taken up across the country is

:10:55.:10:59.

a scandal, quite frankly. In some areas they are cutting the

:11:00.:11:04.

upper age limit from 40. This Bristol couple's baby son was born

:11:05.:11:09.

after IVF on the NHS, but under new plans in the area they wouldn't have

:11:10.:11:13.

qualified as only women aged between 30 and 35 will be eligible. Local

:11:14.:11:17.

health chiefs know that is out of line with the regulator's view, but

:11:18.:11:22.

they say money is tight. The guidelines are there as guidelines

:11:23.:11:26.

and I think the NHS budget is under tough times. I think we need to

:11:27.:11:35.

think of how best we spent the money, so of course the amount of

:11:36.:11:37.

money we get relates to how much money we spend. There is intense

:11:38.:11:40.

financial pressure on the NHS, commissioners say there are not dumb

:11:41.:11:42.

at unlimited resources and difficult choices have to be made. Hugh Pym,

:11:43.:11:47.

A brief look at some of the day's other news stories.

:11:56.:11:58.

Police have named a one-year-old girl who died when a car hit a wall

:11:59.:12:02.

in Merthyr Tydfil as Pearl Melody Black.

:12:03.:12:05.

She was killed yesterday after an unoccupied Range Rover

:12:06.:12:07.

Her parents described her as "the brightest of stars"

:12:08.:12:12.

and said her death had left "a massive hole" in their hearts.

:12:13.:12:16.

A British woman is recovering in hospital after being shot in Brazil.

:12:17.:12:19.

Eloise Dixon from South London was driving with her partner

:12:20.:12:22.

and three children when they took a wrong turn into an area

:12:23.:12:24.

She was shot twice but is now stable after undergoing surgery.

:12:25.:12:31.

The Food Standards Agency says a "very small" number of eggs

:12:32.:12:34.

from European farms at the centre of a contamination scare have been

:12:35.:12:37.

The risk to public health is described as "very low".

:12:38.:12:42.

Millions of eggs have been withdrawn from shops and warehouses

:12:43.:12:44.

Tesco will stop selling 5p carrier bags at the end of the month.

:12:45.:12:52.

After that, the supermarket will only offer "bags

:12:53.:12:54.

Tesco says that despite the Government clamping down on free

:12:55.:13:03.

single-use bags in 2015, it still sells 700

:13:04.:13:06.

It's hoped the move will encourage shoppers to re-use more bags.

:13:07.:13:10.

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has condemned the violence in Venezuela,

:13:11.:13:13.

but stopped short of criticising the country's president,

:13:14.:13:17.

Nicolas Maduro, who he has expressed support for in the past.

:13:18.:13:22.

More than 100 people have died in anti-government

:13:23.:13:24.

protests in Venezuela over the past few months.

:13:25.:13:28.

Now, Mr Corbyn is facing calls to publicly criticise

:13:29.:13:30.

Our political correspondent Vicki Young reports.

:13:31.:13:35.

Back from holiday and back on the campaign trail.

:13:36.:13:38.

Jeremy Corbyn says he and his party were written off

:13:39.:13:41.

He hopes this summer tour of Britain will build on the progress made

:13:42.:13:47.

at the election and he will focus once again on public services.

:13:48.:13:50.

It's no good congratulating firefighters, paramedics,

:13:51.:13:55.

police officers, for running into a burning building as they did

:13:56.:13:59.

at Grenfell Tower and then deny them the proper reward of decent wages

:14:00.:14:02.

Pay them properly and fund the services properly.

:14:03.:14:14.

Mr Corbyn insists he's the only leader offering

:14:15.:14:16.

The next general election is not due for almost five years

:14:17.:14:22.

but Westminster's been a volatile place recently and Jeremy Corbyn

:14:23.:14:25.

says he wants to be ready for the unexpected.

:14:26.:14:29.

Labour's identified dozens of seats where they believe they can beat

:14:30.:14:33.

the Conservatives next time around and officials say Mr Corbyn is now

:14:34.:14:36.

But it's events thousands of miles away in Venezuela that some want

:14:37.:14:43.

A disputed vote has given President Maduro's ruling

:14:44.:14:50.

Violent protests have left over 100 dead.

:14:51.:14:59.

In the past, Mr Corbyn has voiced support for Mr Maduro, even phoning

:15:00.:15:02.

What I condemn is the violence that has been done by any side,

:15:03.:15:14.

Violence is not going to solve the issue.

:15:15.:15:21.

The issues in Venezuela are partly structural because not enough has

:15:22.:15:23.

been done to diversify the economy away from oil.

:15:24.:15:25.

That has to be a priority for the future.

:15:26.:15:27.

But critics say Mr Corbyn needs to go much further than that.

:15:28.:15:30.

Well, I would hope he would first of all condemn completely

:15:31.:15:35.

the dictatorial tendencies of the regime and then accept that

:15:36.:15:41.

what was seen ten or 15 years ago as a kind of role model has actually

:15:42.:15:45.

failed, let alone apply that kind of system to the UK.

:15:46.:15:50.

The Labour leader is back where he feels comfortable,

:15:51.:15:52.

Over the next few weeks, though, his aim is to win over those

:15:53.:15:58.

who voted Conservative two months ago.

:15:59.:16:00.

A 20-year-old British model, who says she was kidnapped and held

:16:01.:16:10.

for nearly a week in Italy, has returned to the UK.

:16:11.:16:12.

Chloe Ayling says she feared for her life.

:16:13.:16:15.

Italian police believe the model was attacked and drugged,

:16:16.:16:18.

before attempts were made to sell her in an online auction.

:16:19.:16:24.

A Polish man who lives in the UK has been arrested.

:16:25.:16:26.

Held captive inside this isolated Italian farmhouse,

:16:27.:16:31.

the bizarre and elaborate kidnap allegation centres on how

:16:32.:16:34.

20-year-old model Chloe Ayling, from south London, was duped

:16:35.:16:39.

into leaving the UK for a photoshoot in Milan.

:16:40.:16:41.

Once inside this fake studio, she is said to have been snatched

:16:42.:16:45.

by three men and injected with the drug ketamine.

:16:46.:16:49.

Unconscious, she was bundled into this bag, placed in the boot

:16:50.:16:52.

While Chloe Ayling was held captive in this house behind me,

:16:53.:16:57.

the police statement says she was tied to furniture,

:16:58.:17:00.

a chest of drawers, whilst the kidnappers tried

:17:01.:17:03.

to sell her on the dark web, and then raise a ransom.

:17:04.:17:07.

Three weeks ago, Chloe Ayling finally fled her captors but stayed

:17:08.:17:10.

She is back in the UK and the details are only

:17:11.:17:15.

I've been through a terrifying experience.

:17:16.:17:19.

I feared for my life second by second, minute

:17:20.:17:21.

I am incredibly grateful to the Italian and UK authorities

:17:22.:17:25.

for all they have done to secure my safe release.

:17:26.:17:28.

Italian authorities say she was freed after being driven

:17:29.:17:31.

to the British Consulate in Milan by this man, Lukasz Herba,

:17:32.:17:34.

a Polish national living in the West Midlands,

:17:35.:17:35.

now charged with kidnap and extortion offences.

:17:36.:17:40.

But there are conflicting reports about this case,

:17:41.:17:43.

why Chloe was seen shopping with her captor

:17:44.:17:45.

She was told that she was going to be sold to somebody

:17:46.:17:50.

She was told that people were there, watching her and ready

:17:51.:17:58.

So she thought that the best idea was to go along

:17:59.:18:05.

with it and to be nice, in a way, to her captor,

:18:06.:18:12.

because he told her that he wanted to release her somehow and sometime.

:18:13.:18:17.

Milan, the world's fashion capital, has always been a draw for aspiring

:18:18.:18:21.

models and unscrupulous agents are not uncommon, although this rare

:18:22.:18:25.

case has shocked and baffled Italian and British police,

:18:26.:18:28.

now working to piece together exacted what happened.

:18:32.:18:33.

The Speaker of the South African parliament has announced that

:18:34.:18:39.

tomorrow's vote of no confidence in the country's President,

:18:40.:18:42.

Jacob Zuma, will be held by secret ballot.

:18:43.:18:47.

The opposition have called for the vote to be held in secret,

:18:48.:18:52.

She said her decision had been taken to ensure a credible outcome.

:18:53.:18:58.

Protesters outside Parliament welcomed the announcement. Mr Zuma

:18:59.:19:01.

has been implicated in several corruption scandals.

:19:02.:19:03.

Sickle cell disease is the most common and fastest growing genetic

:19:04.:19:06.

The NHS says the condition, which can cause extreme pain

:19:07.:19:11.

and life-threatening infections, affects 15,000 people in Britain,

:19:12.:19:13.

mainly people of African, Asian and Mediterranean origin.

:19:14.:19:16.

More than 300 babies are born each year with the condition.

:19:17.:19:19.

Children living with sickle cell are several hundred times more

:19:20.:19:22.

But experimental therapy could bring a glimmer of hope.

:19:23.:19:28.

Colleen Harris went to meet two young people whose lives have been

Everyday things ten-year-old Matthew loves.

:19:32.:19:41.

But with sickle cell disease, that fun can come with a world of pain.

:19:42.:19:48.

I mostly have abdominal pain on my right or my left side.

:19:49.:19:54.

It feels like a needle is inside your stomach.

:19:55.:19:58.

So then you don't want to do anything, you just want to have,

:19:59.:20:06.

you just want to rest and hope it goes away.

:20:07.:20:10.

Come for your medication, sweetheart.

:20:11.:20:15.

Around 300 children are born with sickle cell every year

:20:16.:20:19.

and a stroke is more than 300 times more common in a child

:20:20.:20:22.

That's one of the worries for Matthew's mum, who's been

:20:23.:20:27.

dealing with his illness since he was six months old.

:20:28.:20:31.

He's a little fighter, like I always said.

:20:32.:20:35.

You know, it is emotionally breaking him down.

:20:36.:20:44.

In a healthy person, red blood cells are usually smooth and round.

:20:45.:20:51.

But when you have sickle cell, some cells are abnormally shaped.

:20:52.:20:58.

They are stiff and sticky and can clump together.

:20:59.:21:03.

That then blocks blood flow, restricting oxygen

:21:04.:21:07.

20-year-old university student Daniel has survived five strokes

:21:08.:21:13.

I couldn't push myself to do anything, even if I tried.

:21:14.:21:24.

So I just sort of stayed in bed and then I think my mum found

:21:25.:21:28.

She lifted up my hand and it would completely drop down,

:21:29.:21:33.

The next thing I remember is just my brother carrying

:21:34.:21:38.

So what hope is there for Daniel, Matthew, and thousands of others?

:21:39.:21:43.

Doctors are hopeful that gene therapy will eventually

:21:44.:21:45.

But it is still in the early stages of development and there are talks

:21:46.:21:54.

The exciting thing that's happened recently is that one child in France

:21:55.:21:58.

has been successfully treated with gene therapy, where the bone

:21:59.:22:02.

marrow is taken from the child and then the bone marrow is repaired

:22:03.:22:05.

But it is hopeful that, having done it successfully once,

:22:06.:22:11.

this will then expand quite quickly to be more widely available.

:22:12.:22:14.

For Matthew, those are hopes to hold onto for a chance of a healthy life.

:22:15.:22:18.

Cricket now and England have won the fourth and final Test

:22:19.:22:26.

against South Africa at Old Trafford.

:22:27.:22:27.

They won by 177 runs, meaning they win the series 3-1.

:22:28.:22:30.

Patrick Gearey reports from Old Trafford.

:22:31.:22:35.

Day four, the morning after the downpour before.

:22:36.:22:38.

Hard to predict how long Old Trafford would stay dry

:22:39.:22:44.

but England knew one day like this that's clear could see them right.

:22:45.:22:47.

Last orders for South Africa in this series.

:22:48.:22:50.

Rain offered them temporary protection but when it cleared,

:22:51.:22:54.

Heino Kuhn and Temba Bavuma could also sit down early for lunch.

:22:55.:22:59.

But in Hashim Amla, South Africa have a rare endurance batsman.

:23:00.:23:03.

For a while, England could see no way past him

:23:04.:23:06.

He was safe if his bat had touched the ball.

:23:07.:23:11.

The third umpire thought it hadn't - out.

:23:12.:23:14.

Was that the moment South Africa knew they were done?

:23:15.:23:17.

De Kock, De Bruyne, departed, sent on their way by Moeen Ali.

:23:18.:23:21.

Captain Du Plessis could only watch and eventually follow.

:23:22.:23:23.

The game was finished by the Man of the Match

:23:24.:23:28.

It had taken a while but it was now looking like a beautiful day.

:23:29.:23:35.

So all done before tomorrow's predicted rain.

:23:36.:23:37.

England are not perfect but Joe Root's first series

:23:38.:23:40.

as captain has finished with an impressive win

:23:41.:23:42.

and with the Ashes coming, Australia will have been watching.

:23:43.:23:48.

It's the start of something. It's going to take time to develop.

:23:49.:23:51.

If we want to be more consistent and make sure that we, you know,

:23:52.:23:58.

we keep challenging the best teams in the world, then we are going

:23:59.:24:01.

to have to continue to look to improve and develop individually

:24:02.:24:03.

Will this be the side that faces Australia in Brisbane?

:24:04.:24:10.

But they have just lifted above them in the world rankings.

:24:11.:24:13.

Athletics, and a frustrating day for Team GB.

:24:14.:24:24.

At the World Championships, short on ago, Laura Muir agonisingly missed

:24:25.:24:28.

out on a medal in the women's 1500 metres.

:24:29.:24:30.

Earlier, Sophie Hitchon finished seventh in the women's hammer.

:24:31.:24:33.

From the London Stadium, Natalie Pirks reports.

:24:34.:24:37.

Scotland's very own Laura Muir, running for Great Britain. The odds

:24:38.:24:43.

and talented field were stacked against her. Britain has never had a

:24:44.:24:48.

champion in the women's's 1500 metres so going out hard and fast

:24:49.:24:52.

was the clear decision. Only one tactic here, run for gold. But the

:24:53.:24:57.

second lap was slow, giving others the chance to get in the game. On

:24:58.:25:02.

the bell, Laura Muir made her move. With grit and determination etched

:25:03.:25:05.

on her face, she dug deep with bronze well within her grasp the

:25:06.:25:11.

final straight but from nowhere, 800 metres specialist Caster Semenya

:25:12.:25:14.

found speed and perfect timing to snatch it away. 0.07 seconds

:25:15.:25:21.

separated Laura Muir from her first global medal. I gave it everything I

:25:22.:25:25.

could but the last 15 metres, I tied up and before I knew it, she went

:25:26.:25:29.

past me but I gave everything I could. I think considering the

:25:30.:25:33.

disruptions I've had this year, you know, I gave it all I could and that

:25:34.:25:38.

was all I could do. Sophie Hitchon's jubilation at her surprise bronze in

:25:39.:25:42.

Rio was one of the highlights of the Games and the former ballerina got

:25:43.:25:45.

off to a great start in the hammock age. But Poland's Anita Wlodarczyk

:25:46.:25:51.

was setting the gold standard and Sophie Hitchon's Forth throw went

:25:52.:25:57.

nowhere. She never recovered. British tears are unfortunately

:25:58.:25:59.

becoming a familiar image at these championships. Could not quite find

:26:00.:26:06.

the rhythm I had in qualification. I knew I was in better shape and just

:26:07.:26:12.

disappointed. Not producing it tonight. World record-holder and

:26:13.:26:16.

Olympic 400 metres champion Wayde van Niekerk is attempting to emulate

:26:17.:26:19.

Michael Johnson this week by doubling up in the 400 and 200

:26:20.:26:24.

metres. It means he will race six times in six days. With no Usain

:26:25.:26:31.

Bolt in the 200, there will be a new world champion but there are a

:26:32.:26:36.

number of British athletes hoping to crash the party. Daniel Talbot

:26:37.:26:38.

tracked Wayde van Niekerk all the way in the first heat to make it

:26:39.:26:42.

through to Wednesday's semifinal and Zharnel Hughes made it through as a

:26:43.:26:46.

fastest loser. The trio is completed by Mitchell Blake, Britain's second

:26:47.:26:51.

fastest 200 metres runner of all time. Natalie Pirks, BBC News at the

:26:52.:26:54.

Let's speak to our Sports Editor Dan Roan, who's at the London Stadium.

:26:55.:27:01.

Desperately disappointing for Laura Muir. She was so close and it has

:27:02.:27:08.

been a frustrating day the Team GB. It has, ever since Laura Muir broke

:27:09.:27:13.

Kelly Holmes' British 1500 metres record, she's been regarded as the

:27:14.:27:16.

best chance the country has of a medal, outside of Sir Mo Farah.

:27:17.:27:22.

She's had a fantastic breakthrough season, especially indoors, the

:27:23.:27:26.

24-year-old Scottish athlete but in truth, she was always up against it

:27:27.:27:32.

a highly competitive field in the 1500 final. Faith Kipyegon, as you

:27:33.:27:37.

saw in the report, she won the race and Caster Semenya, the South

:27:38.:27:40.

African who many feel has an unfair advantage because of her naturally

:27:41.:27:43.

elevated testosterone levels are denying Laura Muir a bronze medal

:27:44.:27:50.

and she adds to a growing list of British athletes, the likes of Holly

:27:51.:27:54.

Bradshaw and Sophie Hitchon, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, who have

:27:55.:27:56.

finished just outside the medals and it means after the fourth day of the

:27:57.:27:59.

World Championships, the British team only have one solitary gold

:28:00.:28:04.

medal from Sir Mo Farah. They will hope for a few more, perhaps in the

:28:05.:28:09.

relay and Sir Mo Farah runs again in the 5000 metres at the weekend but

:28:10.:28:13.

when you compare it to the seven medals they won in Beijing two years

:28:14.:28:16.

ago, it is going to be hard for them to match it this time around. Some

:28:17.:28:21.

other News for you, Wayde van Niekerk, the best chance the sport

:28:22.:28:25.

has of replacing Usain Bolt as its biggest star, his chances of success

:28:26.:28:28.

in the 200 and 400 metres have improved because Isaac Makwala,

:28:29.:28:34.

Botswana, as pulled out with illness and it could be rated this statement

:28:35.:28:37.

from the local organising committee which says a number of cases of

:28:38.:28:41.

gastroenteritis have been reported in one of the official hotels for

:28:42.:28:44.

the World Championships and those affected have been supported by

:28:45.:28:47.

medical staff and further advice and guidelines have been issued to team

:28:48.:28:50.

doctors and support staff as a result. Dan Roan, thank you.

:28:51.:28:53.

From bucket and spades at the beach to nipping across the Channel

:28:54.:28:55.

Brits have a long history of seeking out sun or

:28:56.:29:00.

But our holiday habits have changed dramatically over

:29:01.:29:06.

the past couple of decades, according to new figures from

:29:07.:29:08.

The great British holiday. It has changed a lot over the last century.

:29:09.:29:17.

This is Blackpool in the 1920s when huge numbers flocked to the seaside

:29:18.:29:23.

in search of sunshine and sand. By the 1970s, overseas holidays were

:29:24.:29:28.

still mostly reserved for the most affluent of Britons, with Butlins

:29:29.:29:31.

and Brighton remaining popular summer destinations closer to home.

:29:32.:29:36.

But the arrival of low-cost airlines in the 1990s began the boom in

:29:37.:29:40.

foreign travel. 27 million flu overseas in 1996. 20 years later, 45

:29:41.:29:47.

million Britons chose to spend their holidays abroad. Over the past 20

:29:48.:29:53.

years, there's been a revolution in travel and that has been driven by

:29:54.:29:59.

the budget airlines. If you go back to November 1995, when easyJet

:30:00.:30:03.

started up, basically the number of people travelling has doubled and

:30:04.:30:06.

many of them are simply taking advantage of cheap fares to go right

:30:07.:30:12.

across Europe. But while we are flying further afield, we are

:30:13.:30:16.

spending less time there, with a seven night stay proving three times

:30:17.:30:19.

more popular than a fortnight away for Britain's last year. And

:30:20.:30:23.

remember the so-called booze cruises of the 90s, a chance to stock up on

:30:24.:30:28.

alcohol and cigarettes? Those have all but disappeared. In their place,

:30:29.:30:32.

cruises of a different kind have soared in popularity since the 1990s

:30:33.:30:36.

with more than four times as many now being taken. And the top spots

:30:37.:30:41.

for Brits are France and Spain, still, the most popular destinations

:30:42.:30:44.

with Spain topping the poll. The number of visits there are up by 87%

:30:45.:30:49.

in the last 20 years. We could do with a bit about Spanish sunshine

:30:50.:30:53.

here! The weather is coming up soon but that is

:30:54.:30:55.
