The Chancellor speaks out against Cabinet members briefing

:00:07.:00:08.

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

:00:09.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:20.

I'm not going to talk about what comes out

:00:21.:00:23.

They shouldn't have done frankly because Cabinet meetings are

:00:24.:00:28.

supposed to be a private space in which we have a serious discussion.

We'll be looking at the implications of the divisions at

are to be considered by the government after hundreds

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

:02:03.:02:06.

the Chancellor has found himself defending private

comments in public. This time accused of saying public

going to talk about what They shouldn't have done

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

:02:58.:03:01.

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

somewhere to live on the salaries they get, and the strain

there could be better news for public sector workers

at the budget later But in an unusual move

:03:27.:03:29.

he slapped down Cabinet rivals Some of the noise is generated

:03:30.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:42.

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

:03:43.:03:49.

a Brexit which is focused on protecting our economy,

:03:50.:03:52.

protecting our jobs and making sure we can

have continued rising living

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

:03:56.:04:05.

Leave campaigners, the international trade Secretary,

:04:06.:04:07.

denied being behind the briefings. I absolutely deplore

:04:08.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:11.

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

:04:12.:04:14.

that the public expect us to be disciplined and effective,

:04:15.:04:18.

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

:04:19.:04:24.

in Berlin and Paris. Public sector workers

:04:25.:04:26.

continue to make their As it seems do members

:04:27.:04:28.

of the Cabinet, who, with the prime minister's authority

:04:29.:04:33.

in tatters are in no mood to do as they are

:04:34.:04:35.

told. How much can we make of what the

:04:36.:04:47.

Chancellor said today? Well the knives are certainly out for the

:04:48.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:55.

public sector pay, the Chancellor is intent on the government holding its

:04:56.:04:59.

nerve and dealing with the country's debt, yet a handful of ministers

:05:00.:05:03.

have made clear that they think the pot position on pay damaged them

:05:04.:05:07.

during the election. Yet it is decisions over what type of Brexit

:05:08.:05:12.

we negotiate, something that will affect generations to come, that are

:05:13.:05:17.

a significant part of the briefings against the Chancellor. With

:05:18.:05:21.

opposition inside the cabinet to his insistence that jobs and the economy

:05:22.:05:26.

rather than immigration should take priority during the negotiations.

:05:27.:05:31.

Add to that the Prime Minister's own weakness and the speculation about

:05:32.:05:34.

the party leadership and you've got the ingredients for a pretty big

:05:35.:05:38.

row. But Tory backbenchers don't want a leadership contest and as

:05:39.:05:41.

they get ready for their summer break they are calling for calm. You

:05:42.:05:59.

mentioned the Brexit negotiations rich start again tomorrow, the

:06:00.:06:02.

Chancellor also mentioned the issue of an exit bill. Yes, the financial

:06:03.:06:04.

settlement Britain will have to pay on leaving the EU will be a key

:06:05.:06:07.

subject for discussion. Last week Boris Johnson the Foreign Secretary

:06:08.:06:09.

said Brussels could "Go whistle" if it expected the UK to pay a big

:06:10.:06:12.

fine. Yesterday the Chancellor said Britain would honour its debts as

:06:13.:06:15.

long as the vicar had been verified. Another key factor, the rights of

:06:16.:06:18.

citizens here and British citizens abroad, remember the government

:06:19.:06:23.

offering on this issue got a lukewarm response in Brussels. Above

:06:24.:06:27.

the Brexit secretary prepares for these talks he's called for both

:06:28.:06:31.

sides to get down to business. A sign, I think, that the pleasantries

:06:32.:06:35.

are over and the talks have entered a much more serious stage. Eleanor

:06:36.:06:40.

Garnier, in Downing Street, thank you.

:06:41.:06:41.

Roger Federer has made history on Centre Court taking the men's

:06:42.:06:44.

single's title at Wimbledon for a record eighth time.

:06:45.:06:46.

He beat Croatia's Marin Cilic in straight sets.

:06:47.:06:48.

It's Federer's 19th Grand Slam title - and his second since returning

:06:49.:06:51.

from a six-month break at the beginning of the year,

:06:52.:06:53.

Mr Cilic, meet the greatest man to play tennis.

:06:54.:07:04.

Everyone knew the status of Roger Federer and the significance of this

:07:05.:07:07.

We'd seen his magnificent seven titles at

:07:08.:07:11.

eighth. Marin Cilic of Croatia began the match trying to be

:07:12.:07:20.

Even when you think you've got Federer beat, and assume the point

:07:21.:07:24.

In the first set alone, Federer displayed

:07:25.:07:30.

Even when Cilic got his serve in, there was

:07:31.:07:39.

The body language of Cilic varied from anger to something

:07:40.:07:48.

Midway through the second set, we wondered if he

:07:49.:07:52.

A blistered foot did not help, but the

:07:53.:07:55.

He took the trophy on its familiar tour.

:07:56.:08:06.

They are waiting beneath the balcony.

:08:07.:08:12.

As we watch Roger Federer back at the summit, let's remember

:08:13.:08:16.

just last year, he had months away from tennis.

:08:17.:08:19.

There had been knee injury, surgery, recovery.

:08:20.:08:22.

We were contemplating the end of his career.

:08:23.:08:29.

You know I always believed I could maybe come

:08:30.:08:32.

back and do it again and if you believe, you can go

:08:33.:08:35.

I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am

:08:36.:08:44.

today with the eighth, it's fantastic.

:08:45.:08:46.

With 19 grand slams, Federer is still well behind

:08:47.:08:48.

Look out for her when she returns from pregnancy.

:08:49.:08:57.

But in the male game he is on his own.

:08:58.:09:00.

Watching today the what if man, what if Rod

:09:01.:09:02.

Laver had not been banned during the 1960s

:09:03.:09:04.

Laver had not been banned during the 1960s for

:09:05.:09:06.

turning professional, he

:09:07.:09:07.

would surely have won more than his 11 grand slams.

:09:08.:09:09.

Bjorn Borg won five consecutive Wimbledons but his

:09:10.:09:11.

whole career was squeezed into seven years.

:09:12.:09:13.

Pete Sampras won seven times at Wimbledon, supreme on grass he

:09:14.:09:16.

never managed the French title on clay.

:09:17.:09:19.

So if no one in tennis quite compares, is Federer the greatest

:09:20.:09:22.

If you compare him to any other athlete in the world I

:09:23.:09:28.

think he is right up there, whether you are talking

:09:29.:09:30.

about Formula 1, basketball, running, football, I

:09:31.:09:32.

don't think there is anyone like Roger Federer at the moment.

:09:33.:09:37.

Let's appreciate the facts, with four

:09:38.:09:45.

children at 35, he won his eighth title here without conceding a set,

:09:46.:09:48.

defying time is not simply restricted to science fiction.

:09:49.:09:50.

Thousands of opposition demonstrators have gathered outside

:09:51.:09:53.

the Polish parliament to protest about legislation that gives

:09:54.:09:56.

politicians control over the body that appoints judges.

:09:57.:10:01.

Critics say the new law, proposed by the ruling Law

:10:02.:10:03.

and Justice party, erodes the independence

:10:04.:10:05.

of the judiciary and undermines democracy.

:10:06.:10:13.

Tougher sentences for people convicted of acid attacks

:10:14.:10:15.

are to be considered as part of a government review.

:10:16.:10:21.

The latest official figures suggest there were more than 400

:10:22.:10:23.

assaults involving corrosive substances in England and Wales

:10:24.:10:25.

This report from our Home Affairs Correspondent,

:10:26.:10:28.

Danny Shaw, contains some distressing images from the start.

:10:29.:10:34.

This is 21-year-old Resham Khan after acid

:10:35.:10:39.

was thrown at her through a car window while she waited at traffic

:10:40.:10:42.

Her cousin Jameel Muhktar also suffered severe burns in the

:10:43.:10:47.

A man has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

:10:48.:10:53.

And attacks like this appear to be on the increase.

:10:54.:11:01.

Police provided data for acid attacks between last

:11:02.:11:02.

408 incidents were recorded by police in

:11:03.:11:05.

The most commonly used substances were bleach, ammonia and

:11:06.:11:12.

acid and one in five offenders was younger

:11:13.:11:14.

than 18 where the age of the

:11:15.:11:16.

The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, has now

:11:17.:11:20.

ordered a review to ensure everything possible is being done to

:11:21.:11:23.

Life sentences in the most serious cases are already

:11:24.:11:33.

The Home Office wants perpetrators to feel the full force

:11:34.:11:37.

A lot of victims have said that their life has been ruined

:11:38.:11:44.

So to really make sure that the whole system really responds

:11:45.:11:48.

urgently and thoroughly to this appalling crime, and at the heart of

:11:49.:11:51.

The review will also examine whether the 1972 Poisons Act should

:11:52.:11:58.

Retailers will be consulted about measures to restrict sales of

:11:59.:12:02.

harmful chemicals, customers may have to provide proof of age.

:12:03.:12:10.

In the latest attacks on Thursday night,

:12:11.:12:11.

five moped riders in London were allegedly

:12:12.:12:13.

targeted in the space of

:12:14.:12:14.

A 16-year-old boy has been charged and will appear in

In the past few decades China has become a superpower due to its

:12:19.:12:43.

economic transformation, it has become a trading superpower.

:12:44.:12:45.

Now Beijing hopes to go further, with plans to finance and build

:12:46.:12:48.

nearly a trillion pounds of infrastructure in

:12:49.:12:50.

In a series of reports, our China Editor, Carrie Gracie has

:12:51.:12:53.

been following the 7000 mile rail route from China to the UK.

:12:54.:12:56.

Today she reaches the end of her journey.

:12:57.:12:58.

With Brexit driving the UK's search for new markets abroad, is China's

:12:59.:13:01.

What opportunities might the Chinese plan offered to Brexit UK?

:13:02.:13:06.

Shall we have jam first or clotted cream first?

Ting Ting plans to take her pitch from an Essex tearoom to China.

:13:15.:13:19.

A communist state perhaps, but one with a healthy

:13:20.:13:21.

appetite for the rituals of the British ruling class.

:13:22.:13:28.

Her jam is with berries straight from the Tiptree farm.

:13:29.:13:31.

China's consumers getting choosy about food quality, a huge market

:13:32.:13:35.

I think we're still at the beginning of the journey.

:13:36.:13:39.

We are starting small by introducing new things.

:13:40.:13:45.

And a few things, the Chinese are curious consumers,

:13:46.:13:47.

Another challenge, to cut the time from

:13:48.:13:52.

British strawberry farm to Chinese tea table.

From the British end of the new Silk Road back to its start.

:14:22.:14:25.

Three weeks later and those British goods from the train are on display

:14:26.:14:33.

It's a local stir-fry which captures the crowd.

:14:34.:14:42.

British companies can benefit from China.

:14:43.:14:43.

Peter Budd surveys landmarks his firm has helped put

:14:44.:14:45.

China has promised billions to build across 60 countries and he worries

:14:46.:14:50.

UK companies are slow to seize the moment.

:14:51.:14:55.

There is a degree of cynicism about China as a market.

:14:56.:14:59.

A lot of them have had experiences way back in the past and they don't

:15:00.:15:03.

It's quite upsetting actually sometimes,

:15:04.:15:08.

because there's more opportunity here than we are actually taking.

:15:09.:15:14.

The ancient Silk Road was about following opportunity.

:15:15.:15:18.

Back then it was driven by private traders from many countries.

:15:19.:15:24.

The new version is Chinese state money and muscle.

:15:25.:15:27.

If it succeeds, it will make China a superpower again.

:15:28.:15:32.

Even mightier perhaps than the empires of old.

:15:33.:15:37.

But if it fails, it'll leave a legacy of bad blood which poisons

:15:38.:15:40.

China's future and taints even the grandeur of the past.

Lewis Hamilton is now just a point off the F1 Drivers'

:16:08.:16:11.

Championship lead after winning a record-equalling fifth

:16:12.:16:13.

Our correspondent Patrick Gearey reports on a dramatic

:16:14.:16:16.

A Scotsman in a Lotus Ford won the British Grand Prix

:16:17.:16:21.

Jim Clark surrounded by wonder and flowers.

:16:22.:16:24.

Now anyone who comes here can experience every curve,

:16:25.:16:29.

But only one could really feel how Clark felt.

:16:30.:16:32.

Lewis Hamilton certainly started with the same view.

:16:33.:16:34.

Kimi Raikkonen tried to overtake but not so fast.

:16:35.:16:40.

Sebastian Vettel, leader in the standings, had been

:16:41.:16:49.

caught by Max Verstappen, but charged back at him

:16:50.:16:51.

Vettel eventually passed him but Hamilton was over the horizon.

:16:52.:17:04.

The only question was whether he could get in and out

:17:05.:17:07.

Kimi Raikkonen was beaten by Valtteri Bottas for second

:17:08.:17:14.

and Vettel's championship lead was about to dramatically deflate.

:17:15.:17:16.

Lewis Hamilton can hardly have had a better day.

:17:17.:17:25.

It feels amazing to be here, it feels great to see all these

:17:26.:17:30.

flights, the support has been immense and I'm proud that I could

:17:31.:17:35.

do this field. Thank you for your support, pushing us, the team

:17:36.:17:38.

faultless this weekend, it is a perfect weekend for us.

:17:39.:17:42.

Lewis Hamilton's fifth British Grand Prix win,

:17:43.:17:45.

his fourth in a row, and what's more, that title

:17:46.:17:47.

Only one point stands between Hamilton and Vettel now.

:17:48.:17:51.

Sebastien, beware, he is catching you.

:17:52.:17:52.

Patrick Gearey, BBC News, Silverstone.

:17:53.:17:58.

England have been set a record-breaking target of 474

:17:59.:18:00.

to win the second Test, after South Africa continued

:18:01.:18:02.

to dominate on day three at Trent Bridge.

:18:03.:18:07.

Hashim Amla top scored on 87, and looking to level the series,

:18:08.:18:10.

England's openers then had to survive a nervous few overs,

:18:11.:18:18.

After Roger Federer's historic Wimbledon win,

:18:19.:18:21.

there was British success in the mixed doubles -

:18:22.:18:23.

when Jamie Murray partnered Martina Hingis to victory,

:18:24.:18:26.

20 years after Hingis won her only singles title there.

:18:27.:18:30.

They beat the defending champions Heather Watson

:18:31.:18:34.

and Henri Kontinen in straight sets.

:18:35.:18:37.

And there was further British success in the ladies' wheelchair

:18:38.:18:41.

doubles, as Jordanne Whiley and Japanese partner Yui Kamiji won

:18:42.:18:45.

a fourth successive title, coming from a set down

:18:46.:18:47.

Amputee sprinter Jonnie Peacock relived memories of London 2012

:18:48.:18:55.

by winning the T44 100 metres title in the same stadium at

:18:56.:18:58.

the World Para-Athletics tonight - Britain's eighth gold

:18:59.:19:00.

Our correspondent Andy Swiss is there.

:19:01.:19:08.

The 2012 poster boy, now a man on a mission, Jonny Peacock hoping to

:19:09.:19:16.

give London another golden night. Peacock had a point to prove. He

:19:17.:19:20.

missed the last World Championships through injury but with his home

:19:21.:19:24.

crowd roaring him and this time nothing would deny him. COMMENTATOR:

:19:25.:19:29.

Peacock is going to take the gold. He had hoped for a world record, not

:19:30.:19:33.

quite but on the track where he made his name the double Paralympic

:19:34.:19:38.

champion is now against world champion. I know I was in good form

:19:39.:19:42.

but when it comes to the final I don't care about times, it would be

:19:43.:19:47.

a great cherry on top of rising but at the end of the day people care

:19:48.:19:50.

about medals and that is what I be able to keep for ever. And

:19:51.:19:55.

successful and familiar face, Aled Davies winning his third world title

:19:56.:19:59.

in the discus. Again London proving the perfect stage. In fact after

:20:00.:20:05.

three days, the British team is top of the medals table and with a week

:20:06.:20:09.

still to go there should be plenty more to come. Thank you, Andy.

:20:10.:20:14.

That's it from me, but the BBC Sport website has much more -

:20:15.:20:17.

including how Callum Shinkwin lost the Scottish Open in a play-off, and

:20:18.:20:20.

A woman is to play the title role in Doctor Who for the first time

:20:21.:20:28.

Jodie Whittaker, who starred in the ITV

:20:29.:20:34.

drama Broadchurch, will take over from Peter Capaldi.

:20:35.:20:36.

She will first appear as the 13th Doctor in this

:20:37.:20:38.

After half a year of speculation from fans, not just about who the

:20:39.:20:50.

new Doctor might be, but whether it would be a man or a woman...

:20:51.:20:55.

Confirmation that the time travel show is making history.

:20:56.:20:59.

Jodie Whittaker says she is overwhelmed as

:21:00.:21:03.

a feminist, as a woman, and as an actor, to be cast
