After a nine month battle, the Iraqi government says it has

:00:08.:00:12.

liberated the city held by IS extremists for three years.

:00:13.:00:16.

Mosul is back under the control of Iraqi troops but the price paid

:00:17.:00:19.

Thousands have been killed or injured,

:00:20.:00:23.

displaced from their homes by the fighting.

:00:24.:00:28.

We'll be analysing what the future holds for Mosul and for IS.

a petition signed by their supporters

COMMENTATOR: There goes another one! STUDIO: And Moeen Ali takes six

:01:09.:01:12.

wickets as England beat South Africa The Iraqi government said today

:01:13.:01:15.

that the city of Mosul has been liberated from so-called

:01:16.:01:41.

Islamic State, three years after it was first

:01:42.:01:44.

occupied by the extremists. The second largest city in Iraq

:01:45.:01:46.

was where IS declared Since then, its grip on territory

:01:47.:01:49.

has been gradually reduced it's been targeted in

:01:50.:01:52.

Mosul by the Iraqi army backed by US and

:01:53.:02:05.

coalition air strikes. And has lost ground,

:02:06.:02:14.

street-by-street. Tonight, the Defence Secretary Sir

:02:15.:02:16.

Michael Fallon congratulated the Iraqis and highlighted the role

:02:17.:02:18.

played by the RAF. But as our Defence Correspondent

:02:19.:02:20.

Jonathan Beale has seen in Mosul, victory has come at a cost,

:02:33.:02:37.

teams looking for survivors. But more often, they are

:02:38.:02:43.

just recovering bodies. With the heat, there is also

:02:44.:02:46.

the strong smell of decay. that his brother and his

:02:47.:02:50.

family are still alive. Their house was hit in an air strike

:02:51.:02:58.

just a few weeks ago. It was being used by

:02:59.:03:02.

Islamic State fighters. Ali says that he spoke

:03:03.:03:04.

to his brother on this phone while he was trapped somewhere

:03:05.:03:06.

under the rubble. All they find here

:03:07.:03:09.

is decaying corpses. It's a similar story

:03:10.:03:15.

everywhere they go. the Iraqi Prime Minister

:03:16.:03:17.

was en route to Mosul, to declare the liberation

:03:18.:03:21.

of the city. and surrounded by troops who spent

:03:22.:03:24.

the last nine months trying to wrestle the city from IS

:03:25.:03:33.

control, in the toughest of battles. Even this morning there

:03:34.:03:38.

was the sound of gunfire, the children so used to it,

:03:39.:03:40.

they don't even flinch. Families are making their way

:03:41.:03:43.

through any way they can to safety. This territory up there is still

:03:44.:03:56.

under Islamic State control, a small parcel of land.

:03:57.:04:01.

As you can see, they are pretty desperate.

:04:02.:04:14.

It's hard to celebrate freedom from IS when you have just been

:04:15.:04:17.

These family say they have little food or water.

:04:18.:04:21.

They have left behind loved ones under rubble.

:04:22.:04:22.

Many will carry the scars of this battle for the rest of their lives.

:04:23.:04:26.

These children have been prisoners of IS for much of their short lives.

:04:27.:04:29.

Iraq's Prime Minister has declared their city liberated.

:04:30.:04:32.

But for these families, it has come at a huge price.

:04:33.:04:43.

STUDIO: Well, our Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen is here.

:04:44.:04:47.

What does this moment mean for Mosul and for Iraq? Well, it is cause to

:04:48.:04:55.

celebrate, Islamic State's grip has been prised off Iraq and across the

:04:56.:05:01.

board in Syria as well. But this does not mean peace, it does not

:05:02.:05:04.

mean the end of their ideology, either, these jihadists groups are

:05:05.:05:08.

very good at regenerating themselves. The problem is, Iraq and

:05:09.:05:14.

Syria and other countries in the region have been incubators for that

:05:15.:05:20.

kind of ideology and some of the forces, poor governance, poverty,

:05:21.:05:30.

Shia-Sunni hatred, sectarian hatred, inter-Muslim hatred, all of that has

:05:31.:05:33.

fed in, and those factors are still there. As for Iraq itself, all kinds

:05:34.:05:42.

of risks of renewed civil war. The problem is, the country has been

:05:43.:05:45.

coming apart at the seams, the Kurdish, in the North, are having an

:05:46.:05:50.

independence referendum in September. If Iraq continues to

:05:51.:05:56.

fracture like that, then it will be accompanied by a great deal of

:05:57.:05:57.

violence. The parents of Charlie Gard,

:05:58.:06:04.

the 11-month old who has a terminal genetic disorder,

:06:05.:06:06.

handed a petition to Great Ormond Street hospital today

:06:07.:06:08.

asking for him to be allowed to travel to the United States

11-month-old Charlie is severely disabled and brain damage, his

:07:02.:07:06.

after they say new medical information suggests there are some

:07:07.:07:09.

There is just a lot of people who think what has happened here is

decisions about him have spent very little time with him. We are there

:07:23.:07:27.

24 hours a day. If he was suffering and in pain, we could not sit there.

:07:28.:07:32.

Legally handing in the petition does not change anything but the

:07:33.:07:36.

supporters and the parents are emboldened by new medical

:07:37.:07:39.

information coming from Italy and the United States. Great Ormond

the original ruling. The crux of the matter is, you should have a say

:07:49.:07:51.

over the future of Charlie, says the American pastor now supporting the

:07:52.:07:58.

family. He denies turning this into a religious argument. Should the

courts and government officials be involved in what should be a parent

usurping rights. Great Ormond Street says its doctors have explored every

:08:13.:08:16.

possible treatment, the hospital has requested another High Court hearing

tomorrow, with those of what it describes as the new claims from

:08:53.:08:54.

the number of prison officers was being increased following cuts

:09:21.:09:23.

it is easier to get drugs and phones than it was for me to get funded

to do education. People are stuck in a cell,

23 hours a day, they want escape. Look, people in society go

to bring about improvements, build on what my predecessor,

Liz Truss, did in putting in place

where you think, "For goodness' sake,
