Good afternoon, and welcome to the BBC News at One.

:01:31.:01:32.

The second round of formal talks on Britain's departure

:01:33.:01:34.

from the EU got under way this morning in Brussels.

:01:35.:01:37.

The Brexit Secretary David Davis said it was "time to get down

:01:38.:01:40.

to business", and that the priority was to decide the rights

:01:41.:01:44.

of British and EU citizens in each others countries.

:01:45.:01:47.

The EU says there has to be substantial progress on this

:01:48.:01:51.

and on a financial settlement and the issue of the Irish

:01:52.:01:54.

border before talks on trade can start.

:01:55.:01:58.

Meanwhile, Downing St has said the Prime Minister will remind

:01:59.:02:00.

colleagues of the need to keep Cabinet discussions

:02:01.:02:02.

private, after a series of leaks over the weekend.

:02:03.:02:04.

They have been getting into position for weeks. Even months. Finally, it

:02:05.:02:15.

is time to talk detail. And for now, they seem to be

:02:16.:02:22.

speaking each other's language. We will now delve into the... We need

:02:23.:02:30.

to examine and compare our respective positions, in order to

:02:31.:02:35.

make good progress. For us it is pont we make good progress, there

:02:36.:02:40.

there will be negotiations and identify the differences so that we

:02:41.:02:44.

can deal with them and identify the similarities so we can reinforce

:02:45.:02:47.

them, and now, it is time to get down to work, and make that

:02:48.:02:54.

successful negotiation. Mr Davis left soon afterwards,

:02:55.:02:56.

leaving much of that work to officials.

:02:57.:03:01.

This week, they will discuss the Northern Irish border which will

:03:02.:03:04.

become an external frontier of the European Union. Then there is the

:03:05.:03:09.

so-called Brexit bill. How to calculate what the UK owes for

:03:10.:03:12.

financial commitments made as a member. And citizens right, what

:03:13.:03:17.

will happen to EU nationals living in the UK and Brits abroad? That is

:03:18.:03:21.

what the Foreign Secretary emphasised at a meeting just round

:03:22.:03:27.

the corner. I am very pleased that negotiations are beginning and as

:03:28.:03:32.

you know, are very fair serious our has been put on the table by the UK

:03:33.:03:38.

Government about citizenship, the value we place on the 3.2 million EU

:03:39.:03:44.

citizens in our country, the very good offer I think we are making to

:03:45.:03:47.

them and the security they can have about their future and I hope very

:03:48.:03:51.

much that people will look at that offer in the spirit it deserves. It

:03:52.:03:57.

is a great offer. Questions about cabinet splits at

:03:58.:04:01.

home, they went unanswered. Union Jack has been taken down

:04:02.:04:04.

already, David Davis is heading home. The really hard work is taking

:04:05.:04:10.

place behind closed door, privately EU officials think the UK is moving

:04:11.:04:15.

closer to their position when it comes to money. There is still the

:04:16.:04:20.

big issue of whether the European Court of jous tips has a say over

:04:21.:04:24.

the lives of EU citizens living in the UK after Brexit. The European

:04:25.:04:28.

Commission tweeted this picture, not so subtle message, we have done our

:04:29.:04:33.

homework, what are you bringing to the table?

:04:34.:04:33.

And Adam Fleming is in Brussels for us now.

:04:34.:04:39.

Do we expect any great leaps forward? I have been cautioned not

:04:40.:04:44.

to, because the words that diplomats have been using with me over the

:04:45.:04:49.

last few days is clarification. Both sides, the EU and the Brits have

:04:50.:04:53.

swapped loads of position papers on a range of issues and this week an

:04:54.:04:57.

Barnesly is going to be about sitting down and asking questions

:04:58.:05:00.

about what did you mean when you wrote that? What do you expect on

:05:01.:05:06.

this clause or that bullet point, so no great leaps forward. We think.

:05:07.:05:10.

Although if there is any progress to be made, we will find out about it

:05:11.:05:14.

on Thursday, because David Davis, the Brexit secretary will be back

:05:15.:05:19.

here for a wrap up meeting with his opposite number Michel Barnier, and

:05:20.:05:23.

we expect, hoping that both men will do a press conference round

:05:24.:05:25.

lunchtime on Thursday, remember, this is just the start of the

:05:26.:05:28.

process. There is going to be further round of talks here in this

:05:29.:05:33.

building, in August, in September, and in October. And October is

:05:34.:05:37.

crunch time. Because it is at that point that Michel Barnier, the EU

:05:38.:05:42.

chief negotiator will decide whether sufficient progress has been made on

:05:43.:05:46.

the issues of citizens' rights and the Brexit bill, for him to

:05:47.:05:51.

recommend to other EU leaders that they open talks about the future

:05:52.:05:54.

relationship, hand is the really juicy stuff the British Government

:05:55.:05:58.

want to start talking about, because that is trade and cooperation in the

:05:59.:06:04.

future. In terms of the political shenanigans back home, the official,

:06:05.:06:08.

the politicians here are lapping it up, but remember, Michel Barnier is

:06:09.:06:11.

working to guidelines that were written for him by national leaders

:06:12.:06:15.

months and months ago, not over the weekend.

:06:16.:06:17.

Our assistant political editor Norman Smith is in Westminster.

:06:18.:06:24.

Norman, the political she Mangans, a series of leaks over the weekend and

:06:25.:06:30.

Downing Street is now going to call for the Cabinet colleagues to stop

:06:31.:06:37.

leaking. They are, but I suspect the prospect of that being heeded is

:06:38.:06:42.

small. This has become so personal, the briefing against the Chancellor

:06:43.:06:46.

directed at damaging him personally u so there is needle and edge in

:06:47.:06:49.

this, added to which the division over Brexit which are fuelling the

:06:50.:06:54.

leaks and the briefing war, are so profound. Bluntly, those round the

:06:55.:06:58.

Chancellor fearful that we are in no shape to leave the EU in 20 months

:06:59.:07:04.

type. Business in particular needs a breathing space to adapt, a

:07:05.:07:08.

transitional period of two years, maybe more than that. The

:07:09.:07:12.

Brexiteers, however, view that as a ruse, to try and delay Brexit, who

:07:13.:07:18.

know, indefinitely to say we are not ready, we need a bit more time.

:07:19.:07:25.

Time. And the other reason her plea for is not to succeed is she did it

:07:26.:07:29.

a few months ago when she said she would demand the mobile phone

:07:30.:07:32.

records of senior civil servants and ministers, she would want to see

:07:33.:07:38.

their e-mail record, and that had no impact and that is when she was at

:07:39.:07:44.

the prime of her power, so how much impact will this latest call have,

:07:45.:07:49.

given she is a diminished figure, so my sense is the leak, they will keep

:07:50.:07:54.

a springing from the Cabinet. Thank you.

:07:55.:07:56.

The Government has announced the first major contracts

:07:57.:07:59.

for the High Speed two rail line between London and Birmingham.

:08:00.:08:02.

Three British firms are among the companies chosen to build

:08:03.:08:04.

tunnels, bridges and embankments - at a cost of ?6.6 billion.

:08:05.:08:06.

The final route of the line north of Birmingham will

:08:07.:08:09.

be announced later, after years of disagreement,

:08:10.:08:10.

but the first trains aren't expected to run until 2026,

:08:11.:08:13.

HS2. Critics say it be the most expensive railway on the plea net.

:08:14.:08:29.

The Government says it is essential for the future of the UK's transport

:08:30.:08:32.

system and the economies of the Midlands and the north. Contracts

:08:33.:08:35.

have been awarded for the first phase of the project, between London

:08:36.:08:40.

and Birmingham. Those first contracts are worth more

:08:41.:08:44.

than ?6 billion. That, says the Government, will bring in 16,000

:08:45.:08:48.

jobs, but already six years in the planning the first trains won't be

:08:49.:08:53.

operational until 2026, by which time 300,000 passengers will be

:08:54.:08:59.

riding on the new network each day. Overcrowding and overcapacity on the

:09:00.:09:04.

existing network is why it backers say HS2 is essential. No

:09:05.:09:08.

contradiction says the Government it is spending billion on

:09:09.:09:11.

infrastructure at a time when public sector pay is still capped at 1%.

:09:12.:09:18.

We have a situation today, where the railways round cities are congested.

:09:19.:09:22.

Where there is not enough space for the freight service, if we are going

:09:23.:09:26.

to have the capacity we need for future we will have to get the

:09:27.:09:30.

express trains off those line, create more space in London,

:09:31.:09:32.

Birmingham, Manchester and more space to get freight off the roads

:09:33.:09:37.

and on to rail. Large swathes of woodland, farmland and some villages

:09:38.:09:40.

will have to make way for the new line. More controversially still

:09:41.:09:46.

expert says the Department for Transport has grossly underestimated

:09:47.:09:49.

the price. Some suggestions the first phase to Birmingham alone

:09:50.:09:53.

could double in cost from 23 billion, to almost ?48 billion.

:09:54.:09:59.

The cost is based on international best standards, and those standards

:10:00.:10:03.

do not apply to the problems we have in the UK, where we are building on

:10:04.:10:07.

a small congested island, full of property owning people in a

:10:08.:10:13.

democracy, and the costs of land take and come penisation is

:10:14.:10:16.

considerable. At such a price others say HS2 will

:10:17.:10:21.

be nothing more than a vanity project and there are better ways of

:10:22.:10:27.

spending public Monday. Lots of much smaller enterprise, they are not as

:10:28.:10:31.

grand, they don't grab the headline, they don't leave a legacy for the

:10:32.:10:34.

politicians who design them but there are all sorts of typically

:10:35.:10:39.

road projects that one much more valuable possible fob economy and

:10:40.:10:43.

that a colossal multi-billion pound new train line, which won't be fully

:10:44.:10:48.

operation alfor-15 years. This project has been mired in delayed

:10:49.:10:52.

and complications but later today the final routes of the northern

:10:53.:10:57.

branches to Manchester and Leeds are due to be announced including what

:10:58.:11:00.

could be a controversial path round Sheffield. Manufacture

:11:01.:11:01.

A man who's terminally ill is challenging the Government

:11:02.:11:05.

to try to overturn the ban on assisted dying.

:11:06.:11:07.

Noel Conway has motor neurone disease, and wants to be able

:11:08.:11:09.

to choose when and where he dies, without putting those who might help

:11:10.:11:12.

The law currently makes it illegal to help someone to die.

:11:13.:11:16.

Our medical correspondent Fergus Walsh is at the Royal Courts

:11:17.:11:19.

Well, Noel Conway was too weak to come to court this morning buzz his

:11:20.:11:34.

lawyers say he is hoping to give evidence via videolink on Wednesday.

:11:35.:11:38.

At the heart of this case, whether or not the current law breaches his

:11:39.:11:44.

human rights, by preventing him from dying with dignity. Noel Conway

:11:45.:11:49.

increasingly relies on a ventilator to help his Bree. His chest muscles

:11:50.:11:57.

are gradually getting weaker. Once, fit and active motor neurone disease

:11:58.:12:02.

has rob him of the ability to walk, as the condition progresses his

:12:03.:12:07.

fears becoming entombed in his body. I will be quadriplegic. In fact I

:12:08.:12:16.

could be virtually cat tonic. I will be in conceivably a locked in

:12:17.:12:19.

syndrome. That, to me, would be a living hell.

:12:20.:12:24.

That prospect is just not one I can accept. This is an issue which

:12:25.:12:33.

polarised opinion, there were demonstrators representing both

:12:34.:12:38.

sides of the argument outside court. Inside, Mr Conway's legal team said

:12:39.:12:41.

the question of what is a dignified death was a matter for the

:12:42.:12:46.

individual, not the state. Under the Suicide Act, any doctor

:12:47.:12:50.

who helps Mr Conway to die would face up to 14 years in prison. The

:12:51.:12:57.

last major challenge to the law involved Tony Nicklinson who, unlike

:12:58.:13:01.

Mr Conway has not been diagnosed as terminally ill. Since then, MPs

:13:02.:13:07.

overwhelmingly rejected proposals to allow assisted dying. Supporters of

:13:08.:13:12.

the current law say it protects the weak and vulnerable. Parliament have

:13:13.:13:17.

rejected the change to the law on ten occasion on ground of public

:13:18.:13:20.

safety and the evidence from other jurisdictions shows that any change

:13:21.:13:26.

in the law to allow assisted suicide is unnecessary, and also dangerous,

:13:27.:13:30.

because it is uncontrollable. But Mr Conway says the law is

:13:31.:13:35.

broken. And condemns him to unimaginable suffering.

:13:36.:13:41.

This case is going to go on all week and we are likely to get a judgment

:13:42.:13:45.

not until October, and then on such a key issue, this may well go all

:13:46.:13:50.

the way to the Supreme Court. Thank you.

:13:51.:13:56.

An American neurologist who's offered to carry out a new therapy

:13:57.:13:58.

on the terminally ill baby, Charlie Gard, has met

:13:59.:14:00.

He is also expected to examine Charlie over the next

:14:01.:14:04.

two days and to meet other medical specialists.

:14:05.:14:06.

Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital believe

:14:07.:14:08.

the treatment won't work, and that Charlie's life support

:14:09.:14:10.

For the parents of baby Charlie Gard, a great deal is riding on the

:14:11.:14:23.

visit of this man. Dr Michio Hirano. A lauded neurologist from the US. He

:14:24.:14:28.

has offered to carry out experimental treatment which he says

:14:29.:14:31.

could improve Charlie's life chances. Much of Charlie Gard's

:14:32.:14:35.

short life has been spent in intensive care. He has a rare

:14:36.:14:41.

genetic condition, and experts say he should be allowed to die in

:14:42.:14:44.

dignity. But after a lengthy legal battle,

:14:45.:14:49.

Charlie's parents hope that decision can thousand be reversed. Dr Michio

:14:50.:14:54.

Hirano and another physician arrived this morning and were met by the

:14:55.:14:58.

medical director, they have been given an honorary contract which

:14:59.:15:00.

gives them full status to examine Charlie Gard. They will also have

:15:01.:15:05.

access to his medical records, and all of the hospitals clinical

:15:06.:15:08.

facilities. So the key thing that the doctors will be looking for

:15:09.:15:13.

today is to ensure that they have absorbed all of the information from

:15:14.:15:17.

the historical notes round this patient, but also, carried out a

:15:18.:15:24.

physical examination themselves to find the signs of his neurology and

:15:25.:15:27.

understand exactly his status at the current time.

Hirano's assessment is to be completed in two day, the findings

:15:36.:15:38.

will be passed to the judge who will decide whether there is hope for

:15:39.:15:40.

Charlie yet. In the past few minutes, Stephen

:15:41.:15:52.

Hough has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for the manslaughter and

:15:53.:15:59.

rate of a 15-year-old girl in 1976. Her body was found by three children

:16:00.:16:04.

playing hide and Seek. Matthew Richards is at court. This is an

:16:05.:16:08.

attack that happened more than 40 years ago. What was said in court?

:16:09.:16:14.

The judge acknowledged this was a very unusual case. Stephen Hough was

:16:15.:16:18.

convicted last week of the red and manslaughter of Janet have as well

:16:19.:16:23.

as a serious assault against. Today he was sentenced to 12 years in

:16:24.:16:29.

prison. Back in 1976, Janet, was 15 years old. She disappeared in

:16:30.:16:34.

January after going to be Leisure Centre. She died after a brutal

:16:35.:16:39.

sexual assault. Although he was questioned at the time, it was

:16:40.:16:43.

another teenager, Noel Jones, who was jailed for manslaughter. He

:16:44.:16:46.

always protested his innocence. Questions are being asked about how

:16:47.:16:50.

he came to be the centre of police investigations. Stephen Hough may

:16:51.:16:53.

have thought he got away with his crime. But he gave a DNA sample to

:16:54.:17:00.

police in 2017. That was traced to samples taken from Janet's body. He

:17:01.:17:06.

was taken to trial. Janet Commons's family were in court to hear the

:17:07.:17:11.

sentencing. They have lost none of the pain they

:17:12.:17:13.

feel. Matthew, thank you. A second round of talks in Brussels

of illegal immigrants The BBC's Panorama programme has

been investigating how the President has been putting his controversial

deportation plans into action. Hilary Anderson has been

to California to meet families who've been split by immigration

arrests, and to talk to the children of detained parents left

:18:11.:18:14.

to fend for themselves. One morning in May,

:18:15.:18:20.

when they were getting ready for school in their home

:18:21.:18:24.

in San Diego, California, border patrol officers came

:18:25.:18:26.

and arrested both of their parents. They just came up to my mum

:18:27.:18:31.

and told her she was arrested Their parents, Rosenda

:18:32.:18:34.

and Francisco Duarte Snr, have been living in America

:18:35.:18:42.

illegally the 21 years. Border patrol initially

:18:43.:18:46.

suspected them of involvement in international human trafficking,

:18:47.:18:50.

but later dropped the accusation. The Duarte parents run

:18:55.:18:58.

the children all moved their beds Francisco, the older brother, now

:18:59.:19:02.

does his best to run the household. The border guards knew

:19:03.:19:09.

they were leaving a teenager They just asked me,

:19:10.:19:12.

are you Francisco? They said, OK, you can

:19:13.:19:15.

take care of them. So they just left you here

:19:16.:19:21.

with all the family? President Trump came to office

:19:22.:19:24.

on a promise to prioritise TRUMP: We have some bad hombres here

are beginning their trip in Warsaw, before moving on to Berlin

:20:51.:20:53.

later this week. The Foreign Office hopes the tour

:20:54.:20:55.

will remind EU countries about the strength of their ties

:20:56.:20:57.

to the UK. Our royal correspondent,

:20:58.:21:00.

Peter Hunt, reports. For a Duke and Duchess,

:21:01.:21:04.

the pleasure of a Wimbledon final will be replaced by flying

the flag in Poland. It's a visit that's already

:21:13.:21:17.

attracted attention here. This is a country that relatively

This visit to Poland and then Germany will inevitably be seen

:21:47.:21:51.

It won't obviously have any impact on the negotiations,

:21:52.:21:54.

but the government hopes their presence will show

:21:55.:21:56.

the strength of the ties that will endure once Britain has

It is a message they brought to Paris in March, and other royals

the UK. As in Canada last year,

:22:14.:22:15.

the Cambridges are coming en masse. For George and Charlotte,

:22:16.:22:18.

such trips are a novelty. Eventually, they will

:22:19.:22:20.

be a way of life. The royal couple have arrived with

followed by his mother and his sister, Princess Charlotte. The Duke

and Duchess of Cambridge briefly chatted with dignitaries before

heading off to meet the Polish president and first Lady. Later in

the week they will head to Germany to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel and

to visit the Brandenburg gate. Roger Federer made history

at Wimbledon for He beat Croatia's Marin

Cilic in straight sets. It's Federer's 19th Grand Slam title

- and his second since returning from a six-month break earlier this

year, following a knee injury. He's been speaking to our sports

:23:14.:23:15.

correspondent, Joe Wilson. He describes this Wimbledon title as

:23:16.:23:31.

beyond his wildest dreams. Monday morning, fresh as a daisy,

:23:32.:23:36.

interviews to do. The Roger Federer, the champion's routine is serenely

:23:37.:23:40.

familiar. Sunday night he did the champions dinner. He looked like

:23:41.:23:44.

James Bond. Nobody does it better. Well, no man at Wimbledon. This was

:23:45.:23:49.

the eighth time. And what he achieved this year was to overtake

:23:50.:23:54.

the seven men's titles of Pete Sampras, a player who inspired him.

:23:55.:23:59.

That makes it personal. He will always be my hero, not because I

:24:00.:24:03.

have surpassed him at Wimbledon. That doesn't change anything for me.

:24:04.:24:09.

Pete still is my guide. After our match in 2001, I wanted to surpass

:24:10.:24:14.

him. I never thought it would be possible in my wildest dreams. If

:24:15.:24:19.

the fans were happy for me again yesterday, it was another incredible

:24:20.:24:27.

day. It is the fortnight went on in Britain, we get to feel close to

:24:28.:24:32.

Federer. Yes, he is just a tennis player, but sometimes sports

:24:33.:24:34.

stretches the perception of what is humanly possible. At 35, Roger

:24:35.:24:40.

Federer is only interested in winning the big matches these days.

:24:41.:24:43.

His greatest triumph is the ability to manage his body. So what does the

:24:44.:24:49.

target now? There is a temptation to throw himself back into the schedule

:24:50.:24:54.

of chasing tournaments around the world, to be ranked world number one

:24:55.:24:58.

again. But is that significant? Even Federer doesn't insure. May be

:24:59.:25:05.

become world number one at least one more time in my career, or a goal to

:25:06.:25:09.

finish the year as world number one. For me, it makes no difference being

:25:10.:25:17.

number one for a week or year end. I have to have a bit of a meeting and

:25:18.:25:20.

discussion with my team about that in the coming week. As four more

:25:21.:25:24.

grand slam titles, Federer says there are no goals. What the

:25:25.:25:31.

appreciated at the weekend was an hour out of the public eye with his

:25:32.:25:32.

family. Joe Wilson, BBC News. England's cricketers face an uphill

:25:33.:25:34.

struggle on day four of the second test against South Africa

:25:35.:25:37.

at Trent Bridge. Set a target of 474 to win,

:25:38.:25:39.

they lost early wickets. At lunch there were 79-4. Here is

:25:40.:25:46.

Patrick Geary. Test cricket is the waiting game.

:25:47.:26:00.

England's task was to stay out there, hang around. Keaton Jennings

:26:01.:26:03.

managed less than ten minutes. Two long days lay ahead. South Africa

:26:04.:26:08.

were so far in front that wickets took on more value than once. So

when the umpire gave Barry -- Gary Ballance not out, they gambled with

their last review. Check the technology. Everything on red. Lbw,

ride. The situation calls for a strange skill in sport, the ability

:26:23.:26:26.

to do nothing. Alastair Cook is an expert. He is a throwback to a more

:26:27.:26:31.

patient age. He holds on until he knows it is safe, then scores. He

:26:32.:26:39.

makes it seem far easier than it is. After all, look what happened to his

:26:40.:26:43.

successor, Joe Root, officially the second best test batsman in the

:26:44.:26:48.

world. Three down, more than 400 behind, but Cook kept going. While

:26:49.:26:53.

he was out there, that was still half full. A couple of minutes

:26:54.:26:58.

before lunch, and fate intervened. England cracked. They must have

:26:59.:27:04.

coped without the great survivor. Few other Englishmen have showed

:27:05.:27:10.

they can handle the weight. Patrick Geary, BBC News. Oscar-winning actor

It's more than a thousand years since the lynx

:27:30.:27:31.

became extinct in the UK, but campaigners hope a decision

:27:32.:27:34.

An application being considered by Natural England could see

:27:35.:27:39.

the wild cats released into Kielder Forest

:27:40.:27:40.

But the return of a major predator is worrying farmers.

:27:41.:27:46.

Last lynx in Britain was killed for its first 1300 years ago. The

:27:47.:27:59.

application going into Natural England today would see them return.

:28:00.:28:06.

Between six and ten released in Kielder Forest in Northumberland.

:28:07.:28:10.

This is a huge conservation milestone. The first licence ever

:28:11.:28:13.

submitted to release lynx on a trial basis to the UK. That is actually

:28:14.:28:23.

how big is real life lynx is. Paul O'Donohoe you from the lynx trust

:28:24.:28:28.

has been doing a consultation, talking, listening, explaining.

:28:29.:28:30.

These children have some big questions. Are lynx dangerous to

:28:31.:28:36.

people? They live all over the world. A healthy wild lynx has

:28:37.:28:42.

never, ever, ever attacked a human anywhere in the world. They may not

:28:43.:28:46.

hurt people, but lynx our expert hunters. Their main prey? Dear. Dear

:28:47.:28:56.

Andre Gray 's -- overgrazed. There's very little around. Not many places

:28:57.:29:04.

for small mammals and birds. Lynx are needed to balance the ecosystem.

:29:05.:29:10.

Not according to sheep farmers, who say that deer are not a problem and

:29:11.:29:15.

lynx would be a threat. Think it is an absolutely stupid idea. For a

:29:16.:29:20.

predator that has not been in this country for a thousand years, to be

:29:21.:29:25.

released where it is going to cause damage to viable business. As far as

:29:26.:29:33.

I am concerned, the lynx will go for the easy target, which will be sheep

:29:34.:29:39.

and lamb. Opinion here is divided. In the local pub, Mike Brown is

:29:40.:29:45.

thinking about his business. One estimate says the lynx could bring

:29:46.:29:49.

in ?30 million a year in extra tourism. It is the most rural

:29:50.:29:54.

village in England, so we need as many tourists as we can get. We rely

:29:55.:29:58.

on tourist trade. That is 99% of the trade we take. We'll Kielder Forest

:29:59.:30:05.

become the land of the lynx? The decision is now in the hands of

:30:06.:30:09.

Natural England. If they say yes, experts predict they could -- there

:30:10.:30:13.

could eventually be as many as 400 lynx in forest across the UK. Graham

:30:14.:30:19.

Satchell, BBC News, Kielder Forest. Now the weather.

:30:20.:30:25.

We have got some very warm weather, if not hot weather, to come for the

:30:26.:30:29.

of this week. Temperatures surging into the high 20s, if not the low

:30:30.:30:35.

30s. We'll see some thunderstorms breaking out Tuesday night,

:30:36.:30:38.

Wednesday. Things will get cooler and fresher towards the end of the

:30:39.:30:43.

week. It is a glorious day today. Plenty of sunshine. Peter Pan has

:30:44.:30:50.

been out. He was in the Gower. Clear skies for the most part. I'd heard

:30:51.:30:54.

making the sunshine hazy. Some of that is affecting southern part of

:30:55.:30:58.

England. Across the north-west, we have got a weather front bringing

:30:59.:31:01.

cloudy skies into Scotland. Underneath that cloud, skies look

:31:02.:31:08.

rather like this. A few passing showers. That is the exception. The

:31:09.:31:12.

cloud will continue to break-up across the Western Isles and the

:31:13.:31:15.

Highlands of Scotland. Maybe Orkney as well. Most of us will end the day

:31:16.:31:24.

sunny. Temperature wise, 28 degrees in the sunshine. 82 Fahrenheit the

:31:25.:31:28.

warmest spot around the Greater London area. Overnight tonight we

:31:29.:31:33.

keep those clear skies. For the most part, temperatures will fall away.

:31:34.:31:37.

Not too uncomfortable a night. However, in southern England and

:31:38.:31:44.

southern Wales, temperatures 17 to 18 degrees, perhaps too warm for a

:31:45.:31:48.

good night's sleep. On Tuesday, an area of high pressure will move its

:31:49.:31:51.

position. That will change the winds little bit. Cooler winds affecting

:31:52.:31:56.

north-east England, eastern Scotland. Temperatures are few

:31:57.:32:01.

degrees lower. Warm air in western Scotland. Highs of 25 degrees in

:32:02.:32:07.

Glasgow. Temperatures peaking in the upper 20s in the warmer spots. As we

:32:08.:32:11.

had through the evening time and overnight, thunderstorms will start

:32:12.:32:13.

to work away across the English Channel. Some of those purposefully

Channel Islands before working into southern England, Wales, driving

:32:19.:32:22.

north into East Anglia. The amount of rain we see will vary a lot from

:32:23.:32:27.

these storms from place to place. The storms will move north. There

:32:28.:32:32.

could be some areas that get a lot of rain in a few hours. Localised

:32:33.:32:36.

flooding is a possibility. It will feel humid as well for Wednesday.

:32:37.:32:42.

Temperatures peaking at 30 Celsius. That is the hottest day we will see

:32:43.:32:46.

in this current warm spell. Things will turn cooler and fresher towards

:32:47.:32:49.

the end of the week as Atlantic air moves in from the West. Temperatures

:32:50.:32:55.

getting close to normal. 22 degrees for London. On the cool side in the

:32:56.:33:00.

Northwest. This weather only with us for the next few days.

Thank you. A reminder of our main

story this lunchtime. A second round of talks in Brussels

:33:03.:33:06.

on the UK's departure from the EU - the Brexit Secretary says it's time

:33:07.:33:10.

to get down to business. That's all from the BBC News at One,
