weather. 341 millimetres of rain in this part

:01:22.:01:44.

of Cumbria. Still some rain to come this evening but nowhere near as

:01:45.:01:46.

significant in terms of rainfall totals. It is spreading across parts

:01:47.:01:52.

of West Scotland, down towards the Lake District. We could see if other

:01:53.:01:57.

ten or 30 millimetres quite widely before the night goes through. That

:01:58.:02:01.

rain pushes through steadily eastwards overnight and we will see

:02:02.:02:04.

a scattering of showers following on behind. Slightly quieter weather

Widespread fraud the North and West. As they go through the day, the

:02:35.:02:40.

showers, the heaviest will be across the West course, down through

Northern Ireland and the West coast of Scotland. The Eastern areas

seeing some sunshine. The winds will swing to the West, sex and 8 degrees

the average temperatures. Once that early morning rain clears, it will

:02:58.:03:03.

be a fresher today. -- six and 8 degrees. Those of high-pressure as

windy weather. Especially as we move to Wednesday. Wednesday will be when

:03:37.:03:39.

is worth stressing that yes, there is another thing, but nowhere near

:03:40.:03:42.

as extreme as the weather event of the weekend. Also some dry spells.

:03:43.:04:06.

You are watching BBC News with Clive Myrie. We will look at the

:04:07.:04:12.

newspapers in a moment. Firstly, the headlines.

:04:13.:04:21.

More than 40,000 homes have been affected by flooding and power

:04:22.:04:23.

outages, after record rainfall across parts of Northern England.

:04:24.:04:25.

The Prime Minister says there'll be an investigation

:04:26.:04:27.

The Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has called

:04:28.:04:30.

for a "total and complete ban" on Muslims entering the United States -

:04:31.:04:34.

the White House has dismissed the statement was "contrary to US values

:04:35.:04:36.

A family that lost three people in the Glasgow bin lorry crash,

:04:37.:04:40.

is to go ahead with a private prosecution of the driver after an

:04:41.:04:43.

inquiry found that the tragedy could have been avoided, if he hadn't

:04:44.:04:46.

A man appears in court charged with attempted

:04:47.:04:51.

In sport we will give you the pick at a London Underground station.

:04:52.:05:03.

In sport we will give you the pick of the fixtures from the third round

:05:04.:05:07.

of the FA Cup draw. And we will give you the latest update from that

:05:08.:05:10.

match in the Premier League between Everton and Crystal Palace.

:05:11.:05:18.

And we hear Abbott Michel Platini taking his Fifa ban right to the

:05:19.:05:23.

top. And we will give you more information on BBC Sport personality

:05:24.:05:24.

of the year. Firstly, The Papers. A good evening and welcome to our

:05:25.:05:50.

look ahead to The Papers. We speak to the political commentator,

:05:51.:06:03.

Miranda Green. And also Christopher Hope, the chief political

:06:04.:06:11.

correspondent for the Telegraph. Here are the latest headlines...

:06:12.:06:36.

The Financial Times leads with the news that oil prices have reached

:06:37.:06:42.

their lowest level for almost seven years.

:06:43.:06:44.

the success of the French far-right party the Front National in the

:06:45.:06:48.

country's regional elections and says mainstream politicians are

:06:49.:06:51.

The Metro warns that the flood-affected areas

:06:52.:06:53.

hit by another six inches of rain over the next 24 hours.

:06:54.:07:01.

says thousands of new homes are set to be built on green belt land in

:07:02.:07:05.

what it calls "the biggest relaxation of planning protection

:07:06.:07:09.

The Guardian leads with the floods in Cumbria, saying that

:07:10.:07:12.

the Prime Minister is coming under pressure to review the government's

:07:13.:07:15.

And The Mail carries a criticism from the health

:07:16.:07:18.

ombudsman that families affected by medical blunders are being fobbed

:07:19.:07:21.

Only one place to begin, Miranda Green, with the floods.

:07:22.:07:30.

Yes, terrible news. You cannot imagine what that must be like,

:07:31.:07:35.

clearing out your home after the last day of edge and expecting and

:07:36.:07:39.

waiting for another one. Watching people on the news programmes, it is

:07:40.:07:44.

the idea that it is Christmas time, the time of year when everyone wants

:07:45.:07:47.

to be at home with the family and also, for a lot of people, you think

:07:48.:07:53.

of the people from Carlile, the thought that the flood defences had

:07:54.:07:57.

been put in place, especially after the last appalling flood, and here

:07:58.:08:01.

they are again. We all just feel for them so much. Carlisle. -- Carlile.

:08:02.:08:11.

In one case, the metal looks at a family who had been flooded a few

:08:12.:08:14.

years ago, they had new defences built and still the same problem. So

:08:15.:08:23.

much rainfall in 24 hours. No wonder people are wondering where has all

:08:24.:08:28.

the money gone, the company is doing its best and they are trying to do

:08:29.:08:31.

with this problem and spend money accordingly. It happens while we are

:08:32.:08:37.

looking at the issues of global warming in Paris. Perhaps there is a

:08:38.:08:41.

connection there. Jeremy Corbyn has said that the weather is very bad.

:08:42.:08:50.

This is going to be a pattern looking forward. The science is

:08:51.:08:56.

clear, murk warmer air means it can hold more moisture. It is a simple

:08:57.:09:01.

as that. Even climate change deniers, or at least those that

:09:02.:09:06.

leave it is not man made responsible for that, they would agree with that

:09:07.:09:11.

sentiment. The front page of the Daily Mail, the photograph, after

:09:12.:09:14.

the flood, the clean-up, what you were seeing, Miranda, you know,

:09:15.:09:21.

coming up to Christmas, people have the presence, all of the festive

:09:22.:09:24.

tinsel, whatever, it has been destroyed. It is awful. Yes, this

:09:25.:09:31.

pro-women on the front page of mild, desperately trying to get rid

:09:32.:09:37.

of all of the mud and the sludge. -- this poor woman. The feeling that

:09:38.:09:43.

you know that she might have to do it all over again in a few days'

:09:44.:09:55.

time. It is quite upsetting. It is not clean water, it is dirty and

:09:56.:09:59.

smelly water, that picture captures the misery of the old thing really

:10:00.:10:04.

well. But what does the government do? The front page of the Telegraph,

:10:05.:10:08.

record rainfall and more flooding on the way. This was a freak

:10:09.:10:12.

occurrence, but as we have discussed, there was a freak

:10:13.:10:17.

occurrence two years ago, there is a pattern, there seems to be something

:10:18.:10:20.

going on. Is it simply the fact that, Miranda, we are spending too

:10:21.:10:25.

much time in five areas, that we should actually should not be living

:10:26.:10:31.

in those areas? That is really difficult, because somewhere like

:10:32.:10:34.

Cumbria, historic towns, there is clearly an issue in some parts of

:10:35.:10:39.

the UK with building on flood plains. It is debatable whether, you

:10:40.:10:44.

know, some of those housing developments should have been

:10:45.:10:47.

allowed to go ahead. We saw that in the flooding a few years ago. But

:10:48.:10:52.

this, you know, over the last couple of days, Carlyle is an ancient

:10:53.:10:56.

settlement, it was a Roman settlement. It is not a question of

:10:57.:11:06.

wanting to sort of start again on an erroneous recent plan, we have got

:11:07.:11:10.

to find a way like the low-lying countries of Europe have done.

:11:11.:11:15.

Planning for this, in a country like the Netherlands, it is a major part

:11:16.:11:20.

of their spending on infrastructure to make sure that the human

:11:21.:11:26.

settlements are safe. We have got to be creative in terms of how we deal

:11:27.:11:30.

with this problem. And we have to spend money on it. It is

:11:31.:11:34.

interesting, that takes us to your story, Christopher, bold homes on

:11:35.:11:40.

green belt, that is the headline. Yes, green belt is a protected area,

:11:41.:11:47.

the ribbon of land around houses and cities that stops the Rubens role

:11:48.:11:56.

that you see in America. It is an area for the Conservatives. They are

:11:57.:12:00.

talking about building on bits of green belt. This is an argument for

:12:01.:12:08.

the younger generation who have not had it as good as the older

:12:09.:12:14.

generation. If they are worth less than ?250,000, outside of London, it

:12:15.:12:23.

is a good opportunity, I think, for people to say, for people to release

:12:24.:12:29.

the value for the younger ones, it is not a bad idea, we will wait and

:12:30.:12:36.

see what happens. But some people will say, not in my

:12:37.:12:41.

backyard. Absolutely, it depends on your perspective. Can you see it as

:12:42.:12:51.

an important role for people to protect rural areas, defended beauty

:12:52.:13:01.

of our nature? It depends whether it is at the end of your road. This

:13:02.:13:07.

idea of the baby boom and people of that generation having it easy and

:13:08.:13:12.

the people living no growing up and not having their own place to live,

:13:13.:13:16.

it is interesting to know whether that older generation is beginning

:13:17.:13:20.

to worry enough about its own grandchildren to want to see action,

:13:21.:13:24.

so is there that intergenerational anxiety and well that allowed policy

:13:25.:13:28.

to change? The government should give out the message that older

:13:29.:13:32.

people, let the kids, give them a chance and let them on the housing

:13:33.:13:39.

ladder. That is as old people still vote! Did I say that? Did I say

:13:40.:13:46.

that? OK, there is a furious row over Tyson Fury. Miranda, you are a

:13:47.:13:51.

big boxing fan, I will start with you. I live for it! This guy has

:13:52.:13:58.

gone from hero to zero", the space of a few days after winning the

:13:59.:14:01.

heavyweight title. It has been a long time since someone from Britain

:14:02.:14:11.

had that. What is the problem? It is that his unexpected victory has lead

:14:12.:14:14.

to unexpected levels of media attention and I heard various people

:14:15.:14:17.

on the radio today to try to defend them and say, poor Tyson Fury, he is

:14:18.:14:24.

not used to this, he is not surrounded by slick PR types to tell

:14:25.:14:27.

him what to say and what not to say, well, he has unfortunately said

:14:28.:14:30.

a few things that he should not have said. Misogynist, slightly

:14:31.:14:39.

sexist... I would say that he had quite eccentric use. Interesting way

:14:40.:14:46.

of putting it! He has his own strong interpretation of religion and he

:14:47.:14:49.

believes that women should have a very restricted role, essentially a

:14:50.:14:55.

domestic low, and he expressed that quite literally. He is very against

:14:56.:15:01.

legalising homosexuality, which would turn the clock back several

:15:02.:15:06.

decades. And he has got himself into a bottle of trouble. The problem is

:15:07.:15:11.

that he is on the short list for BBC Sports Personality of the Year and

:15:12.:15:14.

people want him off of the short list. But who are the people? Well,

:15:15.:15:25.

it is a petition. He is such an antihero, that could draw votes.

:15:26.:15:30.

Well, you could take him off the list and that would stop that from

:15:31.:15:36.

happening. We will go back and look at the

:15:37.:15:40.

headlines again later with Miranda. Now it is time for Sportsday. Thank

:15:41.:15:42.

you for that

:15:43.:15:43.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
