Good afternoon and welcome to the BBC News at One.


In the next hour, the parents of Charlie Gard will return


to the High Court, as fresh medical evidence will be


heard about their terminally ill son, who is being cared


An earlier ruling supported the view of his doctors that nothing could be


done to improve his quality-of-life, and they should be allowed to switch


off his life-support systems. But judges will evaluate new data about


an experimental treatment the parents want their 11 month


-year-old is sum to receive. Our Correspondent


Daniela Relph reports For Charlie Gard's parents, today's


court hearing offers some hope, The court will hear fresh


admissions this afternoon about the experimental


treatment available. Doctors still believe this treatment


won't help 11-month-old Charlie. It's untested on a child


as unwell as he is. But medics have again


turned to the courts, and left it to the legal system


to make the final decision Yesterday, his parents Chris


and Connie delivered a petition of 350,000 signatures


to Great Ormond Street, calling for him to be able


to travel to America for the Everything now hangs on the decision


of the court this week. We're just hoping that


the judge, you know, Because he said last


time it was futile. But clearly it is not


futile, it has a chance. He's been lying there for months


now, when he should have So far, every judge to hear this


case, right up to the European Court of Human Rights, has ruled


against the wishes of Charlie's family and in favour


of Great Ormond Street. His parents believe the new


treatment could prolong Charlie's For doctors, the situation is both


a medical and moral dilemma. Medical science has moved a long


way, and there's really, it feels, like there's an expectation


of cure, of sending out completely normal again.


And sadly, that isn't the case. We only wish we could have


all those therapies to sort As the legal system once again


decides what happens next, 11-month-old Charlie Gard remains


on a ventilator in hospital. Doctors say he can't see your move,


and any treatment would be futile. But his parents think differently


and believe their son is not They want him to be


given one last chance. Our Medical correspondent,


Fergus Walsh, is outside To say this is difficult is an


understatement, as we know, so what are the options for what might


happen next? The judge, Mr Justice Francis is the judge that originally


decided three months ago that Charlie, on the grounds of the


evidence he heard, should be allowed, as he put it, to die with


dignity. Great Ormond Street is going to asking to look at


unpublished evidence it was sent on Friday, and make an assessment


whether it changes that view. This unpublished data came from seven


doctors and researchers, it came from the Vatican's Children's


Hospital, signed by doctors from a number of countries, and said there


was unpublished evidence in animals and children with a similar genetic


condition to Charlie of dramatic clinical improvement. Crucially, it


could help Charlie's rain condition. But as the hospital has made clear


on Friday night, its position has not changed one bit -- brain


condition. He has terrible brain damage, catastrophic and


irreversible. Their position remains that he should be allowed to die and


be ventilator should be withdrawn. We won't get a definitive ruling


today. That may come later, because all sides have to get together and


analyse the evidence. Fergus, thank you.


"Contribute, don't just criticise" - that's the message from Theresa May


to opposition parties at the beginning of a week


which marks her first anniversary as Prime Minister.


The First Secretary of State, Damien Green,


said it was "a grown-up way of doing politics".


Labour says the Prime Minister has run out of ideas.


Our Political Correspondent Iain Watson reports.


What a difference a year makes, today, Theresa May was meeting the


Australian Prime Minister, underlining her message that after


Brexit, she can rekindle strong relationships with other nations.


And she needs all the friends she can get, because she also has the


rebuild relationships with some of her own MPs, and convince sceptical


voters she hasn't ditched everything she has stood for when she entered


Downing Street a year ago. The government I lead will be driven not


by the interests of the privileged few, but by yours. But since then,


there has been a rather large snag, she has lost a majority. She says


she is making a bold offer to the opposition to contribute to her


policies, rather than criticise them. What the primaries double set


out this week is her ambitions for that government, which are unchanged


from what she said when she stood on the steps of Downing Street for the


first time and talk about a country that works for everyone. Some say it


is a cry for help, a plea for help, and she is being timid, not bold.


Outside the Westminster bubble, people think politicians can work


together across party lines, and that is a good idea. Theresa May is


no stranger to political slogans. Brexit means Brexit, strong and


stable, you know them all by now. Today's message to opposition


politician was to contribute, don't criticise. But


here at Westminster, they say the key test is whether this time there


is any real substance behind the Prime Minister's offer. This is a


zombie government. She is under deep threat from her own party. Could you


work with the government. If she wants co-operation, if she wants to


do things in the national interest, she should take up ideas that we put


forward in our manifesto. She should show that she is serious about


incrementing some of that and set up a cross-party commission to do it.


It would be laughable if it wasn't so serious. We are over a year from


the EU referendum, a year since Theresa May took office as Prime


Minister. And yet, she still doesn't have a clue about how to take this


forward. Critics say Theresa May simply wants to get on the front


foot to quell talk of a leadership challenge. Her allies say rebellious


charter has been fuelled by too much per second. But battling on without


an overall majority is a sobering prospect. Iain Watson, BBC News.


Our Assistant Political Editor Norman Smith is at Downing Street.


What's your assessment of this change in tack and how realistic


Frankly, you are more likely to see big, fat flying pigs doing loop the


loops over Westminster before you are to get Jeremy Corbyn's Labour


Party cooperating with Theresa May's Conservative Party. On these big,


thorny social issues, be it social care or employment rights, tuition


fees, the parties are miles apart. It is true to a lesser extent with


other opposition parties. Therein mind, too, that Mrs may has never


shown much appetite for working cross-party. But there is a rather


brutal reason as well, Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party smell blood.


They think today's OfficeMax of weakness. They are not going to help


prop up Theresa May, Babel stampede her into a general election. In a


way, it seems to me, today's message is more directed at her own party,


not the opposition, to say, I am brimming with ideas and energy. "I


Have my Mojo back. There are tough policies are want to sort out." In


other words, there is an agenda beyond Brexit that could go on for


years. In other words, Theresa May is saying to the press echoed


plotters that don't think she only has a few months left at Downing


Street, think again. Norman, as ever, thank you.


255 people survived the Grenfell Tower fire,


that's the first time such a figure has been given


As a result, estimates of the the number of dead


and missing remains at approximately 80.


Our Home Affairs Correspondent Tom Symonds is at the


The police have given quite a bit of information today and detail about


their investigation, haven't they? That's right. This point about


figures is highly controversial. Some claimed there were 500 or 600


people living in the tower. Police have said today that, according to


their own investigations, and they have been quite extensive, they


believe 350 is the number that should have been in the Tower on


that night. They believe 14 people were not in the tower at the time.


Therefore, further investigations say they believe the number of


survivors is around 255, and the number of dead remains around 80. So


again, the police trying to very clearly say what they believe the


impact, in terms of lives lost, and people missing, because some people


are not confirmed as dead, remains at this stage. Their investigations


continue. Two types of investigations, one, going through


the debris in the towel, looking fit human remains. It has come to that.


We were shown pictures of officers sieving through the remains of


rubble inside the tower. All of which will be kept for future


analysis. Bodies that have been removed from the tower are being put


through CT scan is to identify, for example, due Woolery, surgical


implants that might help say who the owner of the body is. And obviously,


parents, relatives, anybody that survived is being kept informed


about all of this because it is highly sensitive work. Tom, thank


you. The High Court has ruled


that the sale of arms The ruling comes after a case


was brought by a pressure group, They argued that the UK had broken


international humanitarian law by selling weapons which had been


used to kill civilians in Yemen, where the Saudis have conducted air


strikes against Houthi rebels In what's become Britain's


longest-running extradition case, a Scottish man has lost his legal


battle against being sent to the US. 38 year old Philip Harkins


denies shooting a man dead during a robbery in Florida in 1999


and has been fighting The European Court of Human Rights


ruled that his rights would not be breached if he were jailed for life


without parole in Florida. It's called the 'gig economy' -


millions of people caught in a grey area of working flexibly


but without the usual workplace protections -


They are considered neither fully Tomorrow, a degree of clarity might


be introduced after an employment review has looked at some


of the issues raised around this particular labour market,


and it's expected to demand a radical overhaul of employment


law with new guarantees Our Economics Correspondent


Andy Verity reports. Lucas is more one of a million


people that get paid by the task. That flexibility suits him, but if


it is a slow day for takeaway is or he is stuck in traffic, it is he


that loses. If you work around ten hours, we can do around ?150. But


when it is a slow day, we do around 70, working for ten or 11 hours.


Sometimes we spend, like, two hours to get one job, to get ?3 50. It is


not good when it is not busy. If he gets sick or has an accident, he


might also have an income, but tomorrow a review is expected to


classify workers like him not as self-employed but as dependent


contractors, entitled to be paid at least the minimum wage. The big fear


of Digg economy companies like Deliveroo is they might have to pay


workers online, rather than doing work. There is a compromise being


proposed where they are required to prove the workers could earn


substantially more than the minimum wage in a reasonable time. The


report is expected to say that if gig economy companies pay people by


task, they have to show workers earn at least a fifth more than an


employee on the minimum wage would. Unions say it could mean less


protection, not more. A piece rate approach could be a step backwards.


We know that approach was taken for cleaners in hotels come they


couldn't clean enough rooms within an hour to qualify for those rights.


Our concern is also Luba drivers and Deliveroo drivers could be expected


to travel so fast around London and the UK, they never qualify for the


national minimum wage. The gig economy companies are popular


because they are efficient and cheap. One thing that helps them to


trim costs if they avoid paying national insurance. It is unlikely


protection for workers can be stepped up without some increase in


costs for consumers. The High Court is to hear fresh


medical evidence in the case His parents hope it will change


earlier rulings and mean he can try experimental treatment


in the United States. What remains of London's DeMarco


after 70 firefighters tackled a blaze there last night.


Coming up in sport, after 13 years at Manchester United Wayne Rooney


is heading back to his childhood team everton.


He says a wining trophy with the club "would be the pinnacle".


Thomas Gainsborough was one of the most famous portrait painters


of the 18th century but very few drawings of his


Now 25 sketches he drew as a young man have been discovered


in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle,


they had been wrongly attributed to another artist.


Our Arts Correspondent, Rebecca Jones reports.


One of Thomas Gainsborough's most famous portraits, painted in 1870,


he was the most important British artist of the second half of the


19th century, yet your visit early drawings were thought to have


survived, until now. They have been undiscovered in this album on a


shelf here in the print room at Windsor Castle and they have been


here for more than 100 years. In 1874, Queen Victoria wrote to the


studio of Edwin Lancia asking for some of his drawings, he had died


the previous year, and she then have these albums bound into this


Victorian finding and it has been kept here in the Royal library at


Windsor Castle since that time. So it's no wonder that the 25 chalk


sketches inside the album were thought to be by Lancia, and then


the historian was sent a box of photographs of the drawings and she


decided a big mistake had been made. I was looking at boxes and boxes of


photographs and I thought I would have a look through these and I just


jumped up from Niger and said -- my chair and said, all of these are


early Gainsborough drawings. And this sketch of a wood near Sudbury


in Suffolk is a compelling reason for why the sketches are by


Gainsborough, because it matches completely when it is laid over the


finished picture. The drawing was covered with a grid of lines which


is how Gainsborough transferred the composition from the small scale of


the drawing to the large scale of the painting. This was his


preparatory study. It is as if we are present in the studio with him


which is a rather wonderful thought. There was also a surprise. The


drawing of the head of a young woman was this covered on the back of one


of the sketches. It has even been suggested this could be


Gainsborough's future wife. Or the pictures can now be viewed online on


the Royal collection website -- all. Rebecca Jones, BBC news.


Theresa May's offer to EU citizens after Brexit has been described


as falling "far short of what citizens are entitled to",


according to senior members of the European Parliament.


The government said the comments are "an unhelpful


Our Europe correspondent Damian Grammaticus is in Brussels.


Pretty strong language in this letter.


How significant an intervention is this?


This is a very clear warning shot coming from the European Parliament,


from the leaders of four of the five biggest groups in the Parliament who


together can marshal a block of two thirds of votes in the Parliament.


And what they said, Theresa May's offer was a damp squib, falling far


short of what citizens already have and they believe that citizens


should have. They say Theresa May's fault will withdraw rights that


citizens enjoy today -- offer. They said that applications would have to


be done individually and it is not clear that some people could lose,


family members might not be able to join them, all sorts of reasons why


they say rights are being degraded. The European Parliament leaders


point out that their Parliament will have to approve the Brexit deal


before it can be tormented and they say very clearly that they will not


approve anything which withdraws rights that people currently have --


before it can be implemented. It is a clear sign that they want a better


deal, and they are not part of the negotiations but they have said they


will seek to block the deal if it continues along these lines. Thanks


for joining us. Brexit will mean higher food prices,


with lower quality and less choice - that's the warning from the former


boss of Sainsbury's, Justin King - His claims are however disputed


by other industry analysts who believe leaving the EU


could give us an opportunity Food and farming combined


are by far our biggest And the EU is involved all along


the chain from what grows in our fields to the labels


on the pack. The EU also guarantees free trade


across the continent, and the man who ran one


of our biggest supermarkets and Remain supporter,


says any threat to this frictionless I think one can say very clearly


what the direction will be. Higher prices, less choice


and poorer quality. Because all of these dimensions have


been improved by these open trading relationships that we've had over


the last 40 years. He also says the EU has


driven up standards, and means we can get fresh


vegetables all year round. But food prices inside the EU


are higher than the global average. So consumer goods manufacturer


and pro-Brexit campaigner John Mills says leaving could give us


an opportunity to lower bills. Food prices inside the EU vary


from food product to food product, but on average they are about 20%


higher than they are in So there is very substantial scope


for food prices coming down if we switch sources of supply


outside the EU. The fortunes of retailers


and the fate of farmers will be in the hands of those


negotiating our Brexit deal And you can see more on that story

The Brexit Effect' President Trump's team has made it


clear he didn't know that his eldest son and son-in-law had met a Russian


lawyer who - during last year's presidential election campaign -


claimed to have damaging information Donald Trump Junior insists "no


meaningful information" was provided about Mr Trump's


then political rival. President Trump and Putin met


for the first time on Friday and a joint cyber security


unit was discussed. Back in Washington, Donald


and Melania Trump arrived home from the G20 summit in Germany


to face more questions about the President's


relationship with Russia. Following his first


face-to-face meeting with President Putin,


Donald Trump suggested the two countries could work together


on a cyber security unit. But following criticism


from his own party, the president The president is still


under huge pressure over claims of Russian interference


in last year's election. There is not anybody


who thinks that Russia didn't And I think we're going to see


what Congress does. But the key issue isn't what Russia


did, it's whether Trump's team colluded with Russia


to influence the election. And that's what the FBI


and Congress are investigating. Now, the New York Times says


they have evidence at least some in the campaign were willing


to accept Russian help. They say sources have told them


President Trump's eldest son Donald Trump junior


and his son-in-law Jared Kushner met with this woman,


Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with links


to the Kremlin, in June last year. On the promise of being given


damaging information Trump Junior has denied


anything of significance Donald Trump has made it clear


he didn't know anything about it. But this is thought to be the first


confirmed meeting between a Russian national and a member


of the President's inner circle. No doubt investigators will be keen


to know more about how A massive fire broke out overnight


in Camden Market in North London. It's taken 70 firefighters and ten


fire engines several hours to get There are no reports of any


casualties and the cause It's the third major fire to hit


the popular tourist attraction Crews spent the morning dampening


down while investigators continue to look into the cause of the fire


which broke out in a building It's estimated about 30-35 small


businesses and stallholders The fire brigade were called


shortly before midnight. Ten fire engines and 70


firefighters attended the scene. The initial crews worked very hard


in extremely difficult conditions to gain access and to prevent


the fire from spreading. It was very aggressive firefighting


in the early stages. This is not the first time fire has


struck Camden Market. In 2008 a well-known pub along


with six shops and 90 market stalls Camden Market is the fourth


most visited tourist attraction in London,


drawing an estimated It's also one of their


busiest times of year. It's right when they


naturally make some money. So, their livelihoods,


that's everything gone. We can't go into there,


definitely, but we want to go and have a look to see if our stock


is damaged or not. Despite the upset, Camden Market


which has over a thousand stalls and shops, said it's open


for business as usual. They will try to find alternative


retail space for those affected. It's massive, magic,


manic Monday at Wimbledon as the tournament enters


it's second week. All 32 remaining singles players


feature today and that means both Andy Murray and Johanna Konta


are on court. Our Sports Correspondent


David Ornstein reports. And wait among thousands


for whom today is unmissable. I came out Friday


about seven o'clock. The wristband grants


you entry and that is Because this is a day


like no other in tennis, all 16 fourth-round matches played


over the coming hours, I think if you're a spectator this


is the best day of the two weeks. I always recommend people come


on this Monday because you see the cream of the crop,


the 16s on both sides. For the men and women


the first week is a week where you are just


trying to get through. Now the business begins


and you can see that, the look of the players,


everyone knows it is now coming down to the crunch and it


makes it very exciting. Hoping to be there until the end


of that week is Johanna Konta, British number one


and remarkably now And after coming through against


Fabio Fognini on Friday, Andy Murray also now faces a French


player, Benoit Paire. If he and Konta win,


Britain will have a man and a woman in the Wimbledon quarterfinals


for the first time since 1973. And David joins us live


from Wimbledon now. It is not just the British players


in action, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, wingers Williams, Nadal,


they are also here today -- Venus Williams. Andy Murray's former coach


is with us. What about the men's side? Maybe the best day of the two


weeks, and we are lucky, we have the big four in action. Murray and


Djokovic will be all right but the others are in for a battle, Federer


against Dimitrov. And Nadal in his match will stop all eyes are on


Johanna Konta? It is a lot of pressure for her to do with them at


the door is wide open, Jia 's been playing some great tennis. I have


commentated on some of her matches -- she has been playing some great


tennis will stop tips for the title? I will go with Nadal, and I will


also jump on the bandwagon and go for Johanna Konta. The weather is


good and the action is underway and it will be fascinating and by the


end of the day we have the quarterfinal line-ups complete and


there might be two British players in it. We will see.


Time for a look at the weather, here's Ben Rich.


Much more changeable through the week ahead, some real ups and downs


in the forecast. One thing heading down is the temperature, some cooler


days and fresher nights too, especially in the south where it has


been so warm and humid. Some rain at times, but still some spells of


sunshine and there has been sunshine so far today, that is a picture from


Shetland. The shower clouds have been building further east and west


and we have had some big showers and thunderstorms that have affected the


near continent and there has been flooding in Paris because of the


thunderstorms. Some of them had been very close to the south-east of


England. We will grow some of our own thunderstorms, through East


Anglia and the south-east, scattered downpours. Further west, a fair


amount of cloud but a fair amount of sunshine. The best for Scotland will


be around coastal areas. Similar story for Northern Ireland. It is a


fairly cool and fresh feel to the weather. Some sunny spells in


England. And for Wales and the South West, temperatures between 15-19 and


a mixture of sunshine and cloud but a there could be some quite poor


travelling conditions if you catch some of the rain and there could be


a shower at Wimbledon. As we go through the evening, some of the


showers will continue, for the rush-hour in the south-eastern


areas, some tricky travelling conditions and then through the


night across England and Wales things will cloud over and there


will be patchy rain, but largely dry in Scotland and Northern Ireland. We


have not seen a area of low pressure for one, but this is coming and it


is hard to work out its exact track, it may go further north and there is


some uncertainty over how much rain we will get. It will turn


increasingly wet for some areas tomorrow. Northern Ireland mixture


of sunshine and showers. Where ever you are, the cooler and fresher feel


will be apparent. The area of low pressure will feel through -- will


move through the southern half of the country and then it will clear


away, and not a bad day on Wednesday, spells of sunshine. But


it will feel decidedly cool poster North Sea coasts, and even further


west, 19-20 is the best we can expect. Thursday looks like we will


have a band of showers working from west to east and Friday should be a


largely Friday. Quite a changeable we get -- a largely dry day. The


temperatures heading down, it is a cooler feel on the way.
