Trouble in the Cabinet: the Chancellor accuses

:00:00.:00:00.

some of his colleagues of briefing against him.

:00:07.:00:10.

Philip Hammond said they were trying to undermine his attempts to secure

:00:11.:00:13.

a Brexit deal which protected jobs and the economy.

:00:14.:00:19.

I'm not going to talk about what comes out

:00:20.:00:22.

Cabinet meetings are supposed to be a private space in

:00:23.:00:30.

Also coming up on the programme this evening...

:00:31.:00:36.

Tougher sentences for people convicted of acid attacks are to be

:00:37.:00:38.

He did it - Roger Federer makes history - the first man to win

:00:39.:00:45.

To the delight of the crowds, Lewis Hamilton secures

:00:46.:00:51.

his fifth British Grand Prix victory at Silverstone.

:00:52.:01:01.

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, has said Cabinet colleagues who have

:01:02.:01:31.

been briefing the media against him should instead focus

:01:32.:01:34.

After newspaper reports about discussions around

:01:35.:01:39.

the Cabinet table - he said noise was being

:01:40.:01:41.

generated by people opposed to his focus on jobs

:01:42.:01:44.

He also addressed claims he'd described public sector workers

:01:45.:01:49.

Here's our political correspondent, Eleanor Garnier.

:01:50.:01:58.

He is the man of the moment. Though not for the reasons he would like.

:01:59.:02:06.

For the second time this week, the Chancellor has found himself

:02:07.:02:09.

defending private comments in public. This time accused of saying

:02:10.:02:14.

public sector workers are overpaid. Something he did not deny. I have

:02:15.:02:19.

told you, I will not talk about what came out of a private cabinet

:02:20.:02:23.

meeting. Five of your colleagues have. They should not have done,

:02:24.:02:28.

frankly. Cabinet meetings are supposed to be a space where we have

:02:29.:02:33.

a private discussion. You would expect me to put private sector pay

:02:34.:02:37.

in the context of the fiscal and economic situation we face. Among

:02:38.:02:42.

the millions of public sector workers, it is teachers out

:02:43.:02:47.

protesting today, plus others like police officers and nurses who faced

:02:48.:02:54.

a 1% pay cap and 2012. Celebrating workers' rights at a festival in

:02:55.:02:58.

Dorset, the Labour leader accused the Chancellor of being out of

:02:59.:03:02.

touch. I think he is living on a different planet. Public sector

:03:03.:03:08.

workers have had frozen wages for seven years. Workers have had a 14%

:03:09.:03:12.

cut in pay. Many teachers do not stay in the profession because they

:03:13.:03:16.

cannot afford to find somewhere to live on the salaries they get and

:03:17.:03:20.

the strains their under because of shortages. The Chancellor hinted

:03:21.:03:24.

there could be better news for public sector worker the macro

:03:25.:03:30.

workers in the budget later this year but he slapped down rivals

:03:31.:03:36.

talking against him. Some of the noise is being generated by people

:03:37.:03:40.

who are not happy with the agenda I have tried to advance of ensuring

:03:41.:03:46.

that we achieved a Brexit which is focused on protecting our economy,

:03:47.:03:51.

protecting our jobs, and making sure we can have continued rising living

:03:52.:03:58.

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

:03:59.:04:01.

campaigners, the International Trade Secretary, denied being behind the

:04:02.:04:06.

briefings. Absolutely deplore leaks from the Cabinet. I think my

:04:07.:04:10.

colleagues should be very quiet, stick to their own departmental

:04:11.:04:13.

duties, and I think the public expect us to be disciplined and

:04:14.:04:17.

effective. Our backbenchers are furious and the only people smiling

:04:18.:04:22.

will be in Berlin and Paris. Public sector workers continued to make

:04:23.:04:25.

their concerns known, as it seems to members of the Cabinet who with the

:04:26.:04:32.

Prime Minister's authority in tatters, are in no mood to do as

:04:33.:04:34.

they are told. And Eleanor is in Downing

:04:35.:04:35.

Street for us now. How much should we make of this row

:04:36.:04:44.

around the Cabinet table? The knives are certainly out. There is a rabble

:04:45.:04:49.

about public sector pay itself. The Chancellor is intent on fiscal

:04:50.:04:51.

discipline but a handful of ministers have made clear they think

:04:52.:04:55.

the party's stance on pay damaged them during the election. It is an

:04:56.:05:04.

important issue but it is one some see as a short-term dilemma in

:05:05.:05:07.

contrast issues such as what type of Brexit we end up with, and that is a

:05:08.:05:11.

significant part of this briefing from Mr Hammond. There is opposition

:05:12.:05:16.

in the Cabinet to his insistence that jobs come first. Add to that

:05:17.:05:23.

the Prime Minister's own weakness, and the speculation and jostling

:05:24.:05:27.

around the party's leadership, and you have the perfect ingredients for

:05:28.:05:32.

a pretty big row, but the Conservatives do not want a

:05:33.:05:35.

leadership contest. They are calling for calm ahead of the summer break.

:05:36.:05:38.

Eleanor Garnier, thank you. Roger Federer has been

:05:39.:05:42.

crowned Wimbledon champion for a record eighth time,

:05:43.:05:44.

beating Croatia's Marin Cilic Live now to Wimbledon and our

:05:45.:05:46.

Sports Correspondent, Joe Wilson. Hello. Facts and figures tell you a

:05:47.:05:58.

lot about sport and in terms of numbers, Federer is out on his own.

:05:59.:06:02.

But there is also style. What we have seen at this year's Wimbledon

:06:03.:06:07.

is the performance of a true artist. A performance which almost defies

:06:08.:06:10.

time. Mr Cilic, have you met the men's

:06:11.:06:18.

greatest tennis player of all-time? Everyone knew the of Federer and the

:06:19.:06:24.

opportunity of this final. Seven times he had won at Wimbledon, just

:06:25.:06:28.

the record-breaking eighth remained. Marin Cilic began this final trying

:06:29.:06:33.

to be positive. But here is the problem. Assume the point is one. It

:06:34.:06:41.

isn't. Federer broke twice to win the first set, and he showed his

:06:42.:06:47.

full repertoire. Are you serious? Even when Cilic got his serve in,

:06:48.:06:52.

there was Federer. If it does not go right, go left. 36 minutes gone, a

:06:53.:07:01.

set down already, what now? What next? 3-0 down in the second set,

:07:02.:07:06.

Cilic seemed deeply troubled. Whether physical or emotional, for a

:07:07.:07:11.

minute or two we wondered if he would even continue. Cilic played on

:07:12.:07:16.

but Federer breezed through the second set, 6-1. However good your

:07:17.:07:21.

view, it is only fun to watch if it is a match. But depended on Cilic

:07:22.:07:25.

digging in. In the third set there were signs of that. The crowd

:07:26.:07:31.

appreciated it. Cilic had treatment on his blistered foot. It did not

:07:32.:07:35.

help but the key factor was Federer. In the final Federer won eight

:07:36.:07:43.

games. Federer has won eight titles. So he took the trophy on his the

:07:44.:07:49.

Malia tour. He knows the way by now. They will be waiting beneath the

:07:50.:07:58.

balcony. Let's remember, just last year, Federer had months of from

:07:59.:08:03.

tennis. There had been knee injuries, surgery, recovery. We were

:08:04.:08:07.

contemplating the end of his career. Not imagining all this. You know, I

:08:08.:08:11.

believed I could maybe come back and do this again and if you believe you

:08:12.:08:15.

can be really far in your life and I think I did that and I am happy. I

:08:16.:08:21.

kept on believing and dreaming and I am here today. It is fantastic. Is

:08:22.:08:34.

he the greatest sportsman of all time? When you look at his

:08:35.:08:36.

accomplishments, certainly in an individual sport in a global game,

:08:37.:08:39.

it is difficult to think of other athletes who have transcended the

:08:40.:08:41.

sport as much as he has. With four children and at the age of 35,

:08:42.:08:47.

Federer can -- won his title without losing a set. He may have broken

:08:48.:08:50.

into a sweat. Tougher sentences for people

:08:51.:08:52.

convicted of acid attacks are to be considered as part

:08:53.:08:54.

of a government review. The latest official figures suggest

:08:55.:08:56.

there were more than 400 assaults involving corrosive substances

:08:57.:08:59.

in England and Wales This report from our

:09:00.:09:01.

Home Affairs Correspondent, Danny Shaw, contains some

:09:02.:09:04.

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

:09:05.:09:07.

after acid was thrown at her through a car window

:09:08.:09:13.

while she waited at traffic lights. Her cousin Jameel Muhktar also

:09:14.:09:17.

suffered severe burns in the attack in east

:09:18.:09:20.

London last month. A man has been charged with grievous

:09:21.:09:23.

bodily harm with intent. Attacks like this appear

:09:24.:09:27.

to be on the increase. Police provided data for acid

:09:28.:09:29.

attacks between last November 408 incidents were recorded

:09:30.:09:32.

by police in 39 forces. The most commonly used substances

:09:33.:09:41.

were bleach, ammonia and acid. One in five offenders

:09:42.:09:45.

was younger than 18, where the age of the

:09:46.:09:47.

suspect was known. The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd,

:09:48.:09:51.

has now ordered a review to ensure that everything

:09:52.:09:53.

possible is being done Life sentences in the most serious

:09:54.:09:56.

cases are already available. The Home Office wants perpetrators

:09:57.:10:03.

to feel the full force of the law. A lot of victims have said that

:10:04.:10:07.

really their life has been ruined, so why aren't

:10:08.:10:11.

there life sentences? So to really make sure

:10:12.:10:15.

that the whole system really responds urgently and thoroughly

:10:16.:10:18.

to this appalling crime, and at the heart of everything we do

:10:19.:10:22.

must be the victim. The review will also examine

:10:23.:10:26.

whether the 1972 Poisons Act should Retailers will be consulted

:10:27.:10:30.

about measures to restrict sales of Customers may have to provide

:10:31.:10:36.

proof of their age. In the latest attacks on Thursday

:10:37.:10:41.

night, five moped riders in London were allegedly targeted

:10:42.:10:44.

in the space of 90 minutes. A 16-year-old boy has been

:10:45.:10:49.

charged and will appear in The new star of Doctor

:10:50.:10:51.

Who has been revealed. Jodie Whittaker will

:10:52.:10:59.

become the first woman She's best known for her role

:11:00.:11:01.

in Broadchurch and will take Our entertainment correspondent,

:11:02.:11:06.

Lizo Mzimba reports. Time travel show Doctor Who making

:11:07.:11:23.

history. Jodie Tucker says she is overwhelmed, as a feminist, a woman

:11:24.:11:29.

and an actor to be cast as the drama's first female doctor -- Jodie

:11:30.:11:35.

Whittaker. It is a role which demands a huge range of motion,

:11:36.:11:42.

something Jodie has often demonstrated in roles like the

:11:43.:11:48.

trillions. You will have to forgive me, I have been caning it all

weekend. To playing a bereaved mother in award-winning drama

:11:54.:11:59.

Broadchurch. It is complicated. A show in which she has appeared

:12:00.:12:05.

alongside the former Doctor Who companion Arthur Darvel and a former

:12:06.:12:08.

doctor in David Tennant. Casting strong female lead has been a

:12:09.:12:13.

popular strategy with audiences in films like Star Wars and on TV shows

:12:14.:12:18.

like Game Of Thrones. Do you think all fans will welcome a female

:12:19.:12:23.

Doctor? I think most will. Some will not be sure but they should remember

:12:24.:12:31.

that Doctor Who is all about change and this is potentially a really big

:12:32.:12:34.

exciting change to the show. With the BBC having committed itself to

:12:35.:12:38.

greater diversity, it will be hoping that today's announcement will not

:12:39.:12:42.

only excite viewers, but clearly demonstrate that the time travel

:12:43.:12:47.

show has moved firmly into the 21st century.

:12:48.:12:49.

We've heard the Wimbledon men's final result already -

:12:50.:12:51.

but Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes has the rest of the day's sport.

:12:52.:12:56.

Lewis Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix

:12:57.:13:02.

The historic victory moves him to within a point

:13:03.:13:05.

of Sebastien Vettel at the half way stage - after the Championship

:13:06.:13:09.

Leader suffered a dramatic, late puncture.

:13:10.:13:10.

Our correspondent Patrick Gearey reports from Silverstone.

:13:11.:13:18.

Silverstone 50 years ago. A Scotsman in a Lotus board won the British

:13:19.:13:24.

Grand Prix for the fifth time. Jim Clark surrounded by wonder and

:13:25.:13:28.

flowers. Now anyone who comes here can experience every curve, every

:13:29.:13:33.

straight, every tire. But only one could really feel how Clark felt.

:13:34.:13:38.

Lewis Hamilton certainly started with the same view. Everyone behind

:13:39.:13:43.

him. But watch the rear-view mirror. Kimi Raikkonen tried to overtake but

:13:44.:13:48.

not so fast. Hamilton went. More to keep an eye on further back.

:13:49.:13:55.

Sebastian Vettel had been caught by Max but charged back at him full of

:13:56.:13:59.

adrenaline. F1 does dodgems. Vettel eventually passed on but Hamilton

:14:00.:14:03.

was over the horizon. The only question was whether he could get in

:14:04.:14:07.

and out of the pits still ahead? Of course they could. His position

:14:08.:14:13.

would improve. Kimi Raikkonen was beaten by Valtteri Bottas for second

:14:14.:14:18.

and Vettel's Championship lead was about to dramatically be flaked. He

:14:19.:14:22.

went from third to seventh. Lewis Hamilton could hardly have had a

:14:23.:14:27.

better day. These fans have just seen history. Lewis Hamilton's fifth

:14:28.:14:32.

British Grand Prix win, his fourth in a row, and what's more, that

:14:33.:14:37.

title race is definitely on. Only one point stands between Hamilton

:14:38.:14:44.

and Vettel now. Sebastien, beware, he is catching you.

:14:45.:14:47.

Now after Roger Federer's historic victory today,

:14:48.:14:49.

the Centre-Court crowd were also able to enjoy some British success

:14:50.:14:51.

in the tournament's finale - the mixed doubles,

:14:52.:14:53.

after Jamie Murray and the Swiss former Wimbledon winner

:14:54.:14:55.

Martina Hingis beat the defending champions Heather Watson

:14:56.:14:57.

and Finland's Henri Kontinen in straight sets.

:14:58.:14:59.

And there was further British success in the Ladies' wheelchair

:15:00.:15:02.

doubles as Jordanne Whiley and Japanese partner Yui Kamiji

:15:03.:15:05.

won a fourth successive title coming from a set down

:15:06.:15:07.

England's cricketers have been set the formidable target of 474 to win

:15:08.:15:16.

the second test after South Africa declared shortly before stumps

:15:17.:15:18.

Alistair Cook and Keaton Jennings survived a nervous few overs

:15:19.:15:27.

For England's captain, this was a first real test of strength. Joe

:15:28.:15:40.

Root, new to the job. His team in trouble. Now time to show

:15:41.:15:45.

leadership. South Africa were already in the lead. Batsmen Hashim

:15:46.:15:49.

Amla should have been given out here. England chose not to review

:15:50.:15:55.

it, a decision they would regret. Time for the skipper to step in.

:15:56.:16:00.

Whatever he said to Ben Stokes, it worked. Finally, a wicket. But as

:16:01.:16:07.

all captains know, one wicket often brings two. England still struggling

:16:08.:16:11.

but at least something to cheer. There would not be anything more.

:16:12.:16:17.

South Africa's lead growing way beyond 400. A difficult task for the

:16:18.:16:23.

captain, now becoming almost impossible.

:16:24.:16:25.

Sprinter Jonny Peacock will be starting his quest

:16:26.:16:27.

for a second world 100m title at the World Para-Athletics

:16:28.:16:30.

Earlier his British team mate Aled Davies won the F42 discus

:16:31.:16:33.

It's was Britain's seventh gold of the Championships

:16:34.:16:36.

and extends their lead at the top of the medal table.

:16:37.:16:39.

Davies will also defend his shot put world title next Saturday.

:16:40.:16:44.

That's it from me, but the BBC Sport website has details of stage 15

:16:45.:16:47.

of the Tour de France where Britain's Chris Froome still

:16:48.:16:51.

has the leader's yellow jersey, and you can also follow the latest

:16:52.:16:53.

from golf's Scottish Open as well as many other sports stories.

:16:54.:16:56.

The 200th anniversary of the death of one of Britain's greatest writers

:16:57.:17:02.

is being commemorated this week in a series of events.

:17:03.:17:06.

Jane Austen was only 41 when she died, but she left a body

:17:07.:17:09.

of work that has entranced generations of readers.

:17:10.:17:14.

Devotees of Jane Austen are gathering across Britain,

:17:15.:17:27.

Yes, this is my Austen shrine, should perhaps be the word.

:17:28.:17:54.

From the dresses, the blogs and the 100 copies of

:17:55.:17:57.

Pride And Prejudice, Sophie is pure Janeite.

:17:58.:17:58.

For her, Austen is a cultural touchstone.

:17:59.:18:00.

The themes of her stories are still things which concern people today,

:18:01.:18:03.

like the need for money, wanting to find love,

:18:04.:18:05.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man

:18:06.:18:12.

in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

:18:13.:18:16.

In those 23 exquisitely witty words, Jane Austen opened

:18:17.:18:19.

Pride And Prejudice, a book adapted for every generation.

:18:20.:18:23.

Take this same scene between Lizzy Bennet

:18:24.:18:26.

and Lady Catherine De Burgh in three different productions.

:18:27.:18:30.

You are mistaken, madam, I have not been able to account

:18:31.:18:33.

And if I am that choice, why may I not accept him?

:18:34.:18:39.

You have insulted me by every possible method.

:18:40.:18:43.

It was here at Chawton in Hampshire, Jane Austen completed her works,

:18:44.:18:51.

cramming them with 19th century manners, morals and messages

:18:52.:18:54.

The following conversation which took place between

:18:55.:18:59.

The former model Lily Cole is one of the voices of Audible's

:19:00.:19:04.

She says Austen is still influential.

:19:05.:19:11.

I think there are still bigger messages which are relevant today

:19:12.:19:15.

around social critiques, class structures, love and romance

:19:16.:19:19.

and how those two things can interrelate sometimes.

:19:20.:19:23.

Jane Austen was buried here at Winchester Cathedral,

:19:24.:19:26.

having completed around only half a dozen or so works.

:19:27.:19:30.

But 200 years on, such is her continued literary pulling power,

:19:31.:19:34.

she will feature on the new ?10 note to be unveiled here next week.

:19:35.:19:41.

Ironically, Jane Austen made little money herself,

:19:42.:19:45.

but her legacy remains a currency that endures to this day.

:19:46.:19:55.

There's more throughout the evening on the BBC News Channel,

:19:56.:19:57.

we are back with the late News at Ten.

:19:58.:19:59.

Now on BBC One it's time for the news where you are.

:20:00.:20:03.
