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
A new law will ensure that the United Kingdom
will retain its world-class regime of protecting personal data.
Now we will have more control, data protection laws
The government has confirmed a bill will be published in the autumn,
bringing EU regulations due to come in next year onto the statute book.
Internet users will be given more powers to protect their data.
It will be easier for people to find out what information
organisations hold about them and allow them to ask
Firms will no longer be able to rely on pre-selected tick boxes.
Instead, explicit consent will be required to
And the information watchdog will be given more powers to issue fines
of up to ?17 million for serious data breaches.
I think there are a lot of pitfalls ahead if actually
the benefit of this, which is people feeling far more
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
captured more global attention than ever before.
The issue overshadowed this meeting in Manila.

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.
