Good afternoon and welcome to the BBC News at One.


New laws will be introduced, giving people greater


control over what happens to their online personal data.


The government says the legislation offers "the right to be


forgotten," with proposals in the Data Protection Bill making


it easier to withdraw consent for information to be used.


Companies will have to obtain "explicit" consent.


Here's our Political Correspondent, Leila Nathoo.


But what happens to all the information

comfortable transacting online and their data is going to be


I think it's a good first step to have the regulation in place.


It's how it gets implemented that's the key thing.


The new rules won't only apply to the big tech companies


They will affect every organisation that processes information online.


And the definition of personal data is being expanded, too,


to include things like IP addresses to help safeguard identities.


There is your photo going up online, your tweet, your search,


But then there is a whole back office, which is


the industry of data capture, data processing.


That data is processed and it is then that the insights


are shared with advertisers, principally.


Our digital footprints are growing ever larger.


Ministers say data protection laws must keep pace.


Our Technology Correspondent, Rory Cellan-Jones, is here.


Potentially this could affect millions of people. It is huge, what


we are effectively saying is the European General data protection


regulations and the huge piece of legislation agreed a year or so ago


coming in next May and effectively the government has decided to cut


and paste it and put it into British law so it continues after we leave


the EU. The decision has been made that this harmonisation of data


protection laws across Europe will continue. It is a harmonisation, an


update but also a real toughening up, particularly in relation to this


giant American tech companies who are being told that if they want to


process our data and move it across borders, they have to give us much


more control over it. For those businesses, smaller ones that rely


on moving peoples data around and improving their bottom line by using


it, how will they be effected? This have a huge effect on them. For the


last six months Mike inbox filled up with people wanting to advise small


businesses on how to cope with this new regulation. They will have to be


awake to it, there are big and damaging fine that could affect


them. In all sorts of areas. They have to be careful about data


breaches, telling people about them and being more responsible with data


and in general about what consumers want from that data. Many thanks.


North Korea says it will make America "pay the price" for drafting


tough new UN sanctions over its missile and nuclear


The state news agency says the international


community is infringing North Korea's sovereignty.


The UN's unanimous vote on sanctions follows repeated missile tests


by Pyongyang which have escalated tensions across east Asia.


Yogita Limaye reports from the South Korean capital, Seoul.


"We denounce and totally reject the UN Security


Council resolution on our country, which the US


and hostile forces have fabricated," says


a presenter on North Korea's official news agency, relaying the


country's defiant response to fresh sanctions against it.


It's not what these two men would have liked to hear.

This country, South Korea, has dealt with the threat


from across the border for a long time.


But now that Pyongyang has said it has developed missiles that


are capable of hitting the US, it's made America nervous and has

The issue overshadowed this meeting in Manila.


And even though regional leaders came together

A 20-year-old British model, who was reportedly kidnapped


and held for nearly a week in Italy, has returned to the UK.


Chloe Ayling says she feared for her life after being stuffed


in a suitcase and told she'd be 'sold' online.


Italian police believe the model was attacked and drugged


before attempts were made to auction her on the 'dark


web.' A Polish man, who lives in the UK,


Three weeks on from her release, so we returned to the UK this weekend


to her home here in Surrey. I have been through a terrifying


experience, I feared for my life second by second, minute by minute,


hour by hour. I'm incredibly grateful to the Italian and UK


authorities for all they have done to secure my safe release. I had


just arrived home after being in Italy for four weeks and I've not


had time to gather my thoughts so I'm not at liberty to the anything


further until I have been debriefed by UK police. Just 20 and still


starting out in her glamour modelling career, Chloe Ayling


landed a dream photo shoot in Italy but when she arrived at this disused


shop in Milan she says she was grabbed by someone while another


person injected something into her forearm. She said she woke bound and


gagged in the boot of a car. TRANSLATION: The perpetrator is a


dangerous person, he described himself as a paid killer and part of


an organisation that can add mercenary services, bomb attacks and


kidnappings. Stuffed into a back like this later demonstrated by


Italian police, Cloete said she was taken 120 miles to this remote


farmhouse near during and held for the next six days tied to a wooden


chest of drawers. It is understood her captors demanded a ?230,000


ransom but were also telling her she would be auctioned for sexual


services on the dark web, part of the Internet by a criminal group


known to Europol at the Black Death. But her captivity was suddenly


ended, taken to the British Consulate in Milan after revealing


she had a child. This man, Lukasz Herba, who lives in the UK, is


accused of the kidnapping and was arrested after freeing the young


model and is now facing court in Italy. While Chloe is recovering


here at home now it is understood investigations are continuing in


Italy but also here in Britain and in Poland as well. Matt Cole, BBC


News, Surrey. One of Scotland Yard's most senior


officers has defended the government's Prevent programme,


which is designed to stop people Speaking to the BBC's Asian Network,


Commander Dean Haydon said it had achieved fantastic results and that


critics either didn't want Prevent to succeed or were "ignorant"


about how it worked. Here's our Home Affairs


Correspondent, Danny Shaw. Four terror attacks in three months.


Westminster, Manchester Arena, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. 36


dead, more than 200 injured, the lives of many others devastated. The


attacks raised questions about the strategy for tackling terrorism. One


key part involves supporting people at risk of joining extremist groups


and carrying out terrorist activities, known as Prevent. It has


proved to be highly controversial. The Muslim Council of Britian among


others says young Muslims are being targeted and communities don't trust


it. But a senior police officer says Prevent has delivered fantastic


result and does not agree with what the critics have said. That is based


on sometimes ignorance, that they don't understand properly how


Prevent works. Some of the criticisms come from sections of the


community that don't, for a variety of reasons political or otherwise,


don't want it to work in the first place. The scheme was set up in


2003. It places a duty on faith leaders, teachers and social workers


to refer people to Prevent if they have concerns about them. In 2015-16


7500 cases were referred to the scheme and that year Scotland Yard


says 50 people were stopped from going to Syria where it was feared


they would get involved in the fighting. But this man, who founded


the National Association of Muslim police, says Prevent has lots the


confidence of Muslim communities and said the comments today by Dean


Haydon condemning the cricket at -- critics are not helpful. It is


unfortunate to use the word ignorance, the individuals are


establishment figures who are in favour of an independent review,


these are establishment figures and we need to listen to what people are


saying, understand their concerns and look at how we can move forward


to make sure Prevent keeps all of us safe, or a version which have the


confidence of the community. The government says it wants to learn


the lessons from the attacks this year in London and Manchester and


has set up a review of its entire counterterrorism strategy including


the Prevent programme. It is likely to report back later this year.


Danny Shaw, BBC News. And you can hear the full interview


with Commander Dean Haydon, speaking to Nomia Iqbal on the BBC's


Asian Network. That's 'The Big Debate,


Live at The Met Police.' Police have named a one-year-old


girl who died following an incident with a vehicle in Merthyr Tydfil


as Pearl Melody Black. She suffered fatal injuries


yesterday, after an unoccupied Range Rover rolled down a hill


and hit a wall. The girl's younger brother


suffered minor injuries. Their parents have paid


tribute to the little girl, saying the world will be a darker


place without her. Brazilian police say a British woman


has been shot and wounded She was travelling with her partner


and their three children in Angra Dos Reis, a popular coastal


area around 90 miles from Rio. Officials say the family


were attacked after taking a wrong The independent police watchdog


in Scotland has begun an investigation after officers


failed to realise the body of a missing 64-year-old man


was actually in his own house. The hunt, over several weeks,


included officers with dogs, divers checking rivers


and waterways, and a helicopter. But the whole time Arnold Mouat's


body was at home near Falkirk. Let's speak to our


Scotland Correspondent, Take us through the background to


this. Arnold Mouat and his family moved to bonus about three years ago


and they last saw him just before midnight on the evening of the 6th


of July at their house here in the town -- to Bo'ness. It is thought he


left his property at some point during the night and the next day,


the 7th of July, four weeks ago, he was reported missing. There were a


number of public appeals for information on the whereabouts of


the 64-year-old, people in the area were asked to check outbuildings and


garages and there were a number of large searches involving


helicopters, police dogs and divers as well as dozens of volunteers in


an effort to trace Mr Mouat. At the weekend his body was discovered at


the property and it is understood it was found in a hard to access place


and it was believed it had been there for some time. The police


themselves have referred the case to the Independent police watchdog here


in Scotland which is known as Perk and they are under a great deal of


public scrutiny, not just because handling involving other cases


involving missing persons, most possibly the most high profile being


a case involving a couple whose car left the M9 motorway and was


undiscovered for three days. At the moment Perk have 26 ongoing


investigations and in previous incident as they have had the power


to look at police notebooks and interview police officers involved


or even members of the public. They say that in this instance they will


focus on the initial response from police Scotland including the search


of Mr Mouat's home address, after which, when I have finished their


investigation, they will not be drawn on how long that will take,


but they will report back to the Chief Constable of police Scotland


who will decide whether any internal disciplinary measures have to be


taken. Thank you. The government says people should


have "the right to be forgotten" with plans giving all of us greater


control over online personal data. I'm here at the London stadium where


Laura Muir leads Britain's hopes on day four of the world athletics


Championships. Coming up in sport,


Laura Muir goes for gold at the World Athletics Championships,


in the women's 1500 metres final. And Sophie Hitchon also competes


in the women's hammer final. Disruption expected from major


upgrade works at the UK's busiest train station has not so far


materialised, with many trains quieter than expected


on the first working day More than half of platforms


at London's Waterloo station are closed so they can be extended


to accommodate longer trains. They will remain shut


until the end of August. Adina Campbell is at


Waterloo for us now. This is a major multi-million pound


project at Waterloo. It's affecting half of the station here with


platforms 1-10 behind me, completely shut to rail passengers at the


moment, but on that site platforms are still open. Work here started on


Saturday. Today has been the real test for commuters who had faced


some disruption on their journey, but as you said, many trains have


been running to timetable. It comes as no surprise that work


to upgrade the UK''s busiest train It involves hundreds


of Network Rail engineers, closing ten of the station's


platforms, with disruption Considering how much you've got


to pay, it's ridiculous. It's inconvenient, I guess,


for tourists and people who have to work, but at the same


time, what can they do? Packed platforms with people


scanning information boards. And the engineering work has had


a knock-on effect at other stations. I can't believe there aren't any


rail replacement buses. We've got to figure


it out ourselves. I'm probably going to be very, very


late, but I will deal with it. An average of 270,000 journeys are


made to and from Waterloo every day. In fact, it's the UK's


busiest station. This is an ?800 million


improvement by Network Rail, which is responsible for track


maintenance and some 1,000 engineers and site


workers will be working making room for more seats


platforms and bigger trains, and creating extra


space for passengers. I realise it's going to cause some


disruption for people. But on the other hand,


I think passengers understand that this sort of work is really


necessary to transform But transport groups say rail


passengers will feel These works are going to mean


a month of real disruption and delay, not just here at


Waterloo Station but on other parts of the network which will be taking


the strain as passengers


plan alternative journeys. But hopefully it will be


a case of short-term The improvements are expected


to provide 30% more capacity for passengers during peak hours


from December next year. The work is set to last for the next


three weeks. It's due to finish on the 28th of August, which is the


bank holiday weekend. Rail bosses are urging people, despite it being


quieter than normal, to check before they travel and give themselves


plenty of time and if possible to even take holiday or work from home.


Network Rail have also told us they have half a million bottles of water


lined up to give to commuters and also 120,000 ice creams, so that


might help to ease some of the pain for commuters. Live at Waterloo


station. It was a disappointing


Day 3 for Britain, at the World Athletics Championships


in London, with the heptahlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson finishing


fifth, while Holly Bradshaw said she was "heartbroken


and confused," after only coming The home crowd's disappointment,


gave way to excitement after a thrilling women's 100m,


as America's Tori Bowie powered her way to gold,


beating the favourite, and Olympic Champion,


Elaine Thompson of Jamaica. Well, Andy Swiss is at


the London Stadium for us today. Welcome to the London stadium after


what has been such a dramatic weekend. So many talking points, but


the biggest is that win for Justin Gatlin over Usain Bolt in the men's


100 metre final. Justin Gatlin is a two-time drugs cheat and his father


has now criticised the fans here for booing him, saying it was


disrespectful to the sport. But it didn't stop them last night.


ANNOUNCER: Gold medallist and world champion, representing


the United States of America, Justin Gatlin.


To boo or not to boo, that was the question


for one of sports more uncomfortable medal ceremonies.


The response was mixed, the celebrations muted,


but Justin Gatlin's success here has given the fans and athletics


To me it was more of an "ooo" than a boo, from that point of view.


It's not his fault in any way shape or form.


It's the fault of the federations and Wada for putting the rules


down in such a way that allows him to return.


So really if you want to boo somebody, boo Wada


As for British hopes, well, Katarina Johnson-Thompson


had to settle for fifth in the heptathlon.


In the pole vault, Holly Bradshaw's medal ambitions came crashing down,


And for proof of how fine the margins can be,


how about the women's 100 metres final?


Marie-Josee Ta Lou thought she had won, but instead the desperate dive


of Tori Bowie did it by just 100th of a second.


Most of the medals I've won, most of the championships I've been, so why


not a night? Among tonight's highlights,


Laura Muir goes in the 1500 metres final as British athletes search


for that winning feeling. Laura Muir goes in her final at


9:50pm this evening. Also keep an eye out for Sophie Hitchon in the


hammer. She's a former ballerina who won bronze at the Rio Olympics last


year and she has another real chance of a medal tonight, Clive. And the


Swiss at the London stadium, thank you.


England's cricketers have set South Africa a target of 380 runs


to win the fourth Test test at Old Trafford.


England were dismissed this morning for 243 in their second innings.


But South Africa's second innings was delayed by rain this morning.


Let's get the latest from our Sports Correspondent


Bring us up to date, Patrick. The only thing that has been holding


this Test match up has been the rain, it forced players off early


yesterday and interrupted play again today. But fortunately for England


they keep putting themselves in a stronger and stronger position and


they will now be very confident of winning this match and clinching


this series. Day four, the morning


after the downpour before. England couldn't know how long it


would stay dry but, anyway, one day like this that is clear


could see them right. England only need a draw


to win the series. Moeen Ali doesn't see


cricket like that. Unfortunately for him,


neither did his batting partners. Both of them gone within


quarter of an hour. England had barely finished


their team talk when the rain Eventually the rain moved


on and lunch moved back, Stuart Broad, had


England on their way. At times like this they feel they


can take a wicket with every ball. The technology showed why


he's paid to decide. A temporary reprieve,


Heino Kuhn couldn't survive. Batting is tough, and, for England,


it is looking like a beautiful day. South Africa, 34-2 and in big


trouble. The only proviso for England, more rain expected


tomorrow, but they should think this match should be wrapped up by them.


This England team isn't without its problems but with the Ashes coming


up this winter, they are on the brink of a very impressive series


victory. Patrick Gearey at Old Trafford, thank you very much.


Jeremy Clarkson says he will be off work for quite some time after


contracting pneumonia. The former top Gear start ended up in hospital


on Friday in Majorca. He has thanked fans for their support and said it


was really annoying because he has never had a day off work.


The actor Jodie Whittaker, who'll play the 13th Doctor Who,


has been speaking of her excitement about the role.


In her first broadcast interview since being announced in the role,


she praised the "creative and enthusiastic" fans,


who welcomed her appointment as a female Timelord,


and she's been given some advice by past Dr Whos.


Our Entertainment Correspondent Lizo Mzimba has been to meet her.


On TV and online, more than 15 million people have now watched


Jodie Whitaker's unveiling as the 13th actor and the first woman to


play the lead character in Doctor Who. To the public, the build-up


only lasted about three days because the promo happened on the Friday and


then the reveal was the Sunday. For me, that had been months of secrecy


and silent enjoyment, but not being able to share it with anyone. And


then the relief of it being public knowledge, and knowing it had been


leaked and that anything, it was amazing. Since Peter Capaldi


announced he was leaving the show, there had been months of speculation


about his replacement. For Jodie Whittaker, understandably a


stressful time. You are sat on the secret for three months. I found out


I had got it around late March. It had been quite a long process


previous to that. I had about four weeks left on shooting Trust Me as


well, but your focus had to be on being the doctor. In Trust Me that


Doctor isn't a real one. She plays a nurse who ends up impersonating a


doctor. Are you sure about this question I won't say word. She is


well aware her casting in Doctor Who is likely to bring more viewers to


medical drama trust me which start again this week will stop if


somebody is now watching trust me or a film I did ages ago because they


didn't know me and they want to see who the actor is who is playing the


Doctor, that's just exciting, and it shows how lucky I am in a sense of


the roles I get to play, because they are all so different. And


particularly Kath in Trust Me to Doctor Who, they literally worlds


apart. Literary worlds apart! That next role in Doctor Who has already


inspired many fans, especially those delighted that a woman has been


cast. We can celebrate the fact of differences. I have said before that


I hope my gender isn't a fearful thing for the fans. Because in this


world particularly, there aren't rules, and that's a great thing.


She's proved she can keep secrets in real life. This week millions will


see how she does it on screen before finally becomes the Doctor. Lizo


Mzimba, BBC News. We thought the weather might


regenerate into something but unfortunately it hasn't. A lot of


cloud for many places, Suffolk is just one example from our weather


watchers. There will be rain at times during the coming week.


Generally it will feel cool but if you are in the right place at the


right time you will get some sunshine. A lovely day across the


Scottish islands. At least it was a lovely morning. Further south Moor


in the way of cloud and some outbreaks of rain, particularly


stretching from East Anglia down to the south-west. This rain will come


and go but some bursts might turn heavy as we head into the latter


part of the afternoon. The best of the sunshine will be across Northern


Ireland and central Scotland, 17 degrees Belfast, 18 in Dundee. A


fair amount of dry weather in England and Wales. Then we get into


the band of patchy but occasionally heavy rain in the far south-west and


East Anglia. The far south-east could see some sunshine and if that


happens temperatures could get to 22 degrees. Overnight we keep the band


of cloud with outbreaks of rain, not moving quickly and we could see


thundery downpours off the coast of East Anglia, baby ligature and


Easter East Yorkshire as we go through the night. Clear skies and


light wind and a surprisingly cold night for August, particularly if


you are in a sheltered spot in Scotland, where it could get down to


one or 2 degrees. Tomorrow's weather chart looks a bit of a mess. Still


that were the spot with a slow-moving band of rain in central


areas and an area of low pressure trying to roll in from the


south-east. Just to boil this down in simple terms, England and Wales


tomorrow will have quite a cloudy day with outbreaks of rain. There


could be some vicious and thundery downpours in the south-east that


could cause disruption. The best of the brightness again for Northern


Ireland and Scotland. A few showers but not too many with temperatures


struggling for the time of year at 16-19. Wednesday, we squash the wet


weather down to the south-east. Could be a really wet day across


parts of East Anglia and the south-east. They could be


destruction here. A fairly cool fuel once again. Thursday should be a


rather dry day for many with a chance to draw breath. But by the


end it looks like spells of rain will return and with that, it will


turn quite blustery. Some sunshine to be had in the week ahead, but you


will have to be in the right place at the right time.


The government says people should have the right to be forgotten with


plans giving all of us greater control over online personal data.
