Good afternoon and welcome to the BBC News at One.

:01:58.:02:09.

Tata Steel, which employs about 8500 people across the UK,

:02:10.:02:11.

has announced a new pension scheme to replace the British Steel one.

:02:12.:02:14.

The deal should secure the pensions of tens

:02:15.:02:16.

of thousands of steelworkers, after nearly three quarters

:02:17.:02:18.

of union members backed the change earlier this year.

:02:19.:02:20.

It should secure the pensions of 130,000 pensions and stop the

:02:21.:02:22.

company becoming insolvent. Finalising the pension arrangements

:02:23.:02:24.

is expeced to clear the way for a possible merger with a rival

:02:25.:02:27.

German company. Our correspondent

:02:28.:02:29.

Simon Gompertz reports. It is the deal designed to keep Port

:02:30.:02:38.

Talbot running and salvage the amount from the pension protection

:02:39.:02:43.

fund, the U:K.'s's pension lifeboat. You have to take the risk...

:02:44.:02:47.

Personal circumstances. The first step is to get the ball rolling

:02:48.:02:50.

before we transfer anything. Workers have been going to meetings briefing

:02:51.:02:55.

them on their options, after Tata Steel pledged hundreds of millions

:02:56.:02:58.

of pounds and a share of the business to head off the worst

:02:59.:03:02.

damage to pensions. They see that amount and when they can retire

:03:03.:03:03.

under threat. All of a sudden, you're coming

:03:04.:03:05.

to the end of your working life. You've got two years

:03:06.:03:08.

left and you've got to work another seven years in order

:03:09.:03:11.

to get what you've worked at your entire life without any penalties,

:03:12.:03:14.

and they feel cheated. They are very bitter about it. It

:03:15.:03:23.

looks like the choice facing current and former steelworkers is to opt in

:03:24.:03:27.

to a new pension scheme which may have lower annual increases, to

:03:28.:03:31.

escape to the pension protection fund which pays some 10% less, or to

:03:32.:03:37.

transfer the whole value of cash to a personal pension, giving it the

:03:38.:03:41.

promise of an income for life. The future of workers' pensions is

:03:42.:03:49.

wrapped up with the future of steel in Europe. This is opening the way

:03:50.:03:54.

to a megamerger of Tata Steel in the UK with a bigger rival to try to

:03:55.:03:59.

achieve economies of scale. In the immediate future are the prospects

:04:00.:04:02.

for Port Talbot and all the satellite works in North Wales and

:04:03.:04:05.

so on, they look very good, but in the long run a merger is likely to

:04:06.:04:11.

lead to some rationalisation. There are still complains that workers who

:04:12.:04:14.

have contributed to the company pension scheme in good faith should

:04:15.:04:19.

not now be losing some of their retirement income. The pension

:04:20.:04:21.

protection fund is there to protect the members, not the companies

:04:22.:04:25.

themselves, so I think the issue everyone has is why should they be

:04:26.:04:36.

allowed to join the fund, with Tata Steel worldwide having plenty of

:04:37.:04:41.

cash, as we know? Plenty of questions as Port Talbot reaches a

:04:42.:04:45.

new future. Well workers switched to the new scheme? Will they still have

:04:46.:04:50.

support in future if needed? Simon Gompertz, BBC News.

:04:51.:04:51.

Our Wales correspondent Tomos Morgan is outside the Tata

:04:52.:04:53.

What sort of reaction is starting to come through, Tomos? Well, it has

:04:54.:05:08.

been a year and a half of uncertainty in South Wales. It was a

:05:09.:05:12.

little more than a year ago, this time last year, I was standing here

:05:13.:05:17.

seeing this plant behind me may be closing. There is some positivity,

:05:18.:05:21.

jobs safeguarded as we know, but there has been a sacrifice as well.

:05:22.:05:24.

The detail we were looking for has come out today. Workers will now be

:05:25.:05:29.

able to choose between transferring to a new modified scheme underpinned

:05:30.:05:32.

by Tata, or to remain in the same scheme underpaid by the pension

:05:33.:05:38.

protection scheme itself. However, there will be some disappointment

:05:39.:05:40.

amongst the workforce, because they will lose out on the lucrative

:05:41.:05:44.

pension scheme they originally signed up with when they first

:05:45.:05:47.

worked here, but that was a sacrifice that had to be made

:05:48.:05:50.

according to Tata because if they were not to make that places like

:05:51.:05:54.

the planned behind me would have to close. As Simon alluded to in his

:05:55.:05:58.

piece, this deal pushes for the prospect of a merger with the German

:05:59.:06:03.

giant and many believe there will be some sort of rationalisation if

:06:04.:06:06.

those two do join together and there could be some issues regarding the

:06:07.:06:13.

long-term future of Port Talbot, so really there is some sort of hope

:06:14.:06:16.

for the future with jobs in the long term. From the unions, they are

:06:17.:06:21.

saying this deal was the lesser of two evils. Tomos, thank you very

:06:22.:06:25.

much, Tomos Morgan there from Port Talbot.

:06:26.:06:39.

President Trump has again stepped up the rhetoric against North Korea -

:06:40.:06:42.

warning that US military options were "locked and loaded" should

:06:43.:06:44.

The United States and North Korea have been engaged in a war of words

:06:45.:06:48.

for days with Pyongyang threatening to fire missiles towards

:06:49.:06:51.

the American island of Guam in the Pacific.

:06:52.:06:52.

Earlier China urged both sides to be cautious

:06:53.:06:54.

As the war of words between America and North Korea continues,

:06:55.:07:01.

the US Defence Secretary this week with his Vietnamese counterpart,

:07:02.:07:03.

at a time when security in Asia feels more fragile.

:07:04.:07:08.

The man in charge at the Pentagon is emphasising the 'D' word.

:07:09.:07:13.

I didn't expect all of you to come out here!

:07:14.:07:16.

You can see the American effort is diplomatically-led,

:07:17.:07:21.

it has diplomatic traction and is gaining diplomatic

:07:22.:07:23.

results, and I want to stay right there right now.

:07:24.:07:26.

The tragedy of war is well-enough known.

:07:27.:07:29.

It doesn't need another characterisation beyond the fact

:07:30.:07:31.

But the tone from the President was very different.

:07:32.:07:36.

His message to North Korea's leader feels personal.

:07:37.:07:43.

He has said things that are horrific, and with me he's not

:07:44.:07:46.

He got away with it for a long time, between him and his family.

:07:47.:07:54.

In a tweet this morning, President Trump said military

:07:55.:08:02.

solutions were locked and loaded should North Korea act unwisely.

:08:03.:08:05.

Hopefully, he said, Kim Jong-un will find another path.

:08:06.:08:09.

North Korea has carried out missile test after missile test this year.

:08:10.:08:15.

The latest type could possibly hit Alaska.

:08:16.:08:20.

Each an act of defiance towards America and its allies.

:08:21.:08:26.

Japan's missile defence system is more relevant now.

:08:27.:08:29.

The Japanese government sees pressure via

:08:30.:08:30.

We are currently trying to have as much and

:08:31.:08:46.

strongest possible pressure to the North Koreans

:08:47.:08:47.

so that we will have a way out in a peaceful way.

:08:48.:08:51.

Recent tests of American air defence systems in South Korea.

:08:52.:08:55.

The island of Guam, which Pyongyang identified

:08:56.:08:57.

as a possible target, is also protected.

:08:58.:09:01.

But for all the hot language, the atmosphere on this tropical

:09:02.:09:04.

US territory in the western Pacific is cool.

:09:05.:09:08.

Our correspondent Yogita Limaye is in the South Korean capital Seoul.

:09:09.:09:15.

No sooner does James Mattis try to talk about diplomacy again, that now

:09:16.:09:22.

President Trump comes out again and uses more bellicose language? That's

:09:23.:09:28.

right. In many ways it puts this country, South Korea, in quite a

:09:29.:09:33.

difficult position. As one analyst told me today that government

:09:34.:09:35.

perhaps prefers that the US president does not make such strong

:09:36.:09:40.

remarks. The top national security adviser here spoke to his US

:09:41.:09:43.

counterpart today about how to contain the threat from North Korea,

:09:44.:09:47.

and during that conversation it is reported that America agreed that it

:09:48.:09:52.

would not launch any preventative strike on North Korea without

:09:53.:09:56.

informing Seoul, and what this country has been following, you

:09:57.:10:00.

know, on one hand ramping up its defence capabilities along with the

:10:01.:10:03.

US, but on the other hand because of how much it has to lose, in a way,

:10:04.:10:08.

it perhaps has the most to lose, because if there is any kind of a

:10:09.:10:13.

war that breaks out here and therefore the second track it is

:10:14.:10:17.

pursuing is that of diplomacy. It has always said a Channel 4 dialogue

:10:18.:10:21.

is open with North Korea, and offered it has reiterated this week

:10:22.:10:26.

-- a channel for dialogue is open with North Korea. On the streets of

:10:27.:10:30.

Seoul you would not notice anything different or anything is, but I have

:10:31.:10:34.

to see people here are now getting a bit worried about when this

:10:35.:10:40.

rhetoric. But when it all started on Sunday people were saying, we have

:10:41.:10:42.

heard these threats so many times before, so they were ignoring it,

:10:43.:10:46.

but now it continues and they are a bit worried. I think it would be

:10:47.:10:49.

fair to say they believe there is no reason to panic just yet. Yogita

:10:50.:10:53.

Limaye there in Seoul, thank you very much.

:10:54.:10:57.

Nearly two months after the Grenfell Tower fire,

:10:58.:10:59.

public donations aren't reaching survivors quickly enough.

:11:00.:11:00.

Figures from the Charity Commission show that less than 15%

:11:01.:11:04.

of the money raised has so far been distributed, although it says

:11:05.:11:08.

that the early difficulties in identifying and contacting people

:11:09.:11:11.

who need help are now being overcome.

:11:12.:11:12.

The response to the fire at Grenfell Tower was unprecedented. Close, food

:11:13.:11:26.

and money was donated from all over the world, but with so many

:11:27.:11:31.

organisations collecting funds, the Charity Commission stepped in to

:11:32.:11:35.

help coordinate efforts, with some of the biggest charities. But two

:11:36.:11:39.

months on, figures from the commission shall only ?2.5 million

:11:40.:11:45.

of the ?80 million collected has been distributed to those affected.

:11:46.:11:49.

This whole country and beyond has donated a large and of money to all

:11:50.:11:56.

the victims of Grenfell Tower, yet on the ground there is nothing,

:11:57.:12:03.

these people are not getting the revenue. Grants were announced for

:12:04.:12:07.

residents including ?20,000 for people who lost their homes when

:12:08.:12:11.

moving into a new one. Another ?20,000 to the next of kin of those

:12:12.:12:16.

who died in the fire, and ?10,000 to people who spent a week or more in

:12:17.:12:21.

hospital. With less than 15% of some of these donations making it to

:12:22.:12:26.

those affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower, frustration is

:12:27.:12:29.

building and questions are being raised as to whether this system is

:12:30.:12:34.

actually working, and why it is taking so long for the money to make

:12:35.:12:41.

it to those who need it most. ?2.6 million has flowed out of the funds

:12:42.:12:47.

so far, and also in the next phase charities wanted to engage with the

:12:48.:12:50.

survivors and the communities to understand their views and wishes

:12:51.:12:54.

for what they expected funds to be used for. It comes as residents of a

:12:55.:12:59.

nearby estate in south-east London have been told they will have to

:13:00.:13:01.

move out. Cracks in the walls have been found so if there was a gas

:13:02.:13:05.

explosion of the building could collapse. We are shocked. We feel

:13:06.:13:12.

angry, we feel very upset. And quite confused as well because we are not

:13:13.:13:17.

getting any further answers at the moment. I kind of expected it for a

:13:18.:13:23.

while, because we had doubts about the structural safety of the blocks,

:13:24.:13:27.

relating to gas as well, which was one of the issues apart from the

:13:28.:13:32.

fire, one of the safety issues. But I can't really take it in, really. I

:13:33.:13:36.

think we basically have to move. It is somewhere I have lived for 15

:13:37.:13:41.

years. The council says it is doing all it can to help and is putting

:13:42.:13:46.

residents' safety first, but now there are concerns about the cost of

:13:47.:13:52.

fixing buildings here and across the country. Many now questioning who is

:13:53.:13:58.

going to foot and ever-growing bill. Frankie McCamley, BBC News.

:13:59.:14:03.

The EU's food safety commissioner has called for an end to countries

:14:04.:14:06.

blaming and shaming each other, after eggs were found to contain

:14:07.:14:08.

traces of an insecticide, Fipronil, which can be dangerous

:14:09.:14:11.

The commissioner called for an urgent meeting of EU

:14:12.:14:14.

The contaminated eggs came from the Netherlands.

:14:15.:14:17.

Our correspondent Anna Holligan is at a poultry farm in Dalfsen.

:14:18.:14:25.

Anna? There are 25,000 hen in this barn and it might look and sound

:14:26.:14:34.

like a lot but this is just a tiny fraction of what is a vast industry,

:14:35.:14:39.

and the fact that the contaminated eggs spread as far and as fast as

:14:40.:14:43.

they did is a reflection of the Netherlands status as Europe's

:14:44.:14:48.

largest producer. What started out as a crisis in the Dutch poultry

:14:49.:14:52.

industry is now engulfing politicians, and it has been about

:14:53.:14:57.

what the authorities in the Netherlands and Belgium knew before

:14:58.:14:59.

they went public with that information. As well as that,

:15:00.:15:05.

companies associated with supplying, producing and using this band

:15:06.:15:10.

chemical, Fipronil, has been discussed, and two directors of a

:15:11.:15:14.

Dutch company had been arrested. In terms of the risks, the Food

:15:15.:15:21.

Standards Agency say the amount of Fipronil detected in the

:15:22.:15:24.

contaminated eggs which reached the UK is so low it is very unlikely to

:15:25.:15:30.

pose any risk at all to our health. Anna, many thanks.

:15:31.:15:36.

Air passengers were most likely to be delayed over the last two

:15:37.:15:39.

summers if they flew from Gatwick Airport

:15:40.:15:43.

Data from the Civil Aviation Authority for those periods have

:15:44.:15:47.

been analysed by the BBC, and show that among the ten biggest

:15:48.:15:51.

airlines, Easyjet travellers suffered an average delay

:15:52.:15:52.

Gatwick and Easyjet say many of the delays

:15:53.:15:57.

Our business correspondent Emma Simpson is at Gatwick Airport.

:15:58.:16:06.

It is the time of year of course when the holidays are in full swing

:16:07.:16:14.

and where the airlines and the airports make most of them money,

:16:15.:16:18.

because when the demand goes up, so do the slots, and that is fine as

:16:19.:16:20.

long as there are not any problems. Up, up and away, but how often do

:16:21.:16:23.

they take off on time? The BBC has been

:16:24.:16:26.

looking at the data. Gatwick Airport had

:16:27.:16:28.

the longest delays with Doing much better, Leeds Bradford

:16:29.:16:29.

and Belfast City airports, both with average delays

:16:30.:16:38.

of ten minutes. The summer season can

:16:39.:16:42.

be a pinch point. Gatwick has the single

:16:43.:16:47.

busiest runway in the world with planes often taking off

:16:48.:16:49.

and landing every minute. Things are going smoothly

:16:50.:16:57.

here today, but if this schedule slips it can have

:16:58.:16:59.

big knock-on effects. We absolutely recognise

:17:00.:17:04.

the inconvenience caused to our passengers, but most

:17:05.:17:06.

of the time our flights are ready to go, but they simply cannot

:17:07.:17:09.

depart because we are up against the challenge of congested

:17:10.:17:11.

airspace over our heads, bad weather across the whole

:17:12.:17:13.

European region and European We fly to Europe more than anyone

:17:14.:17:15.

else and, as a result, we are disproportionately more

:17:16.:17:25.

affected. As for the airlines,

:17:26.:17:26.

EasyJet had the longest delays It said having the biggest number

:17:27.:17:28.

of flights was a factor. The shortest delays

:17:29.:17:32.

were at Aer Lingus, with 12 minutes. I think airports like Gatwick need

:17:33.:17:38.

to think about building I think airlines like EasyJet

:17:39.:17:42.

should have, perhaps, more resources for the schedule

:17:43.:17:47.

they are hoping to deliver, but, ultimately, it's

:17:48.:17:51.

us passengers saying, "We want loads of cheap

:17:52.:17:52.

flights, please." The Government reckons 30 minute

:17:53.:17:54.

delays could be the norm unless the airspace above London

:17:55.:18:02.

and Europe is redesigned Here at Gatwick, congestion really

:18:03.:18:20.

seems to me to be the main driver of the delayed. They have been

:18:21.:18:25.

developing new tax six to try to minimise disruption, -- new tactics.

:18:26.:18:30.

A rapid response team can be deployed if a plane is arriving late

:18:31.:18:33.

to get passengers and bags off as quickly as possible. It seems every

:18:34.:18:38.

little helps to get things on the move.

:20:15.:20:18.

the national anthem. But, yeah, it's a special

story, you know? I mean, he was a kid,

:20:21.:20:22.

loved his football. But I could see in his eyes

it was genuine, because as a child, there was nothing I could give him

:20:34.:20:45.

apart from just being a friend. They were best friends

:20:46.:20:48.

and it was a friendship that It was an instant connection

:20:49.:20:50.

and one that continues Even towards the end

:20:51.:20:53.

when he was really struggling and he was in bed, he couldn't

:20:54.:20:58.

really move, I would walk into the room and he'd jump

:20:59.:21:06.

up and his mum's like, So, yeah, for me every time

:21:07.:21:10.

I saw him it was a special feeling. The emotion is still raw,

:21:11.:21:15.

but the impact the little boy has had on Defoe has been

:21:16.:21:18.

a positive one. The Bournemouth striker calls it

:21:19.:21:20.

"a gift" and says he will both be forever grateful that Bradley came

:21:21.:21:23.

into his life. In a funny sort of way I wake up

:21:24.:21:25.

and I think, I don't know, if you've got a headache

:21:26.:21:28.

or you don't feel well or feel If I can see a little kid suffer

:21:29.:21:31.

like that and still fight, then... I mean, for me, there is no bigger

:21:32.:21:36.

motivation to think, "Well, if he can go through that and fight,

:21:37.:21:38.

then I can go through anything." You walked out with him

:21:39.:21:45.

so many times, but was I remember being down the tunnel

:21:46.:21:47.

and he was looking for me, like he does, and I came down

:21:48.:21:52.

the tunnel and gave him a cuddle and Joe Hart said to me, "J,

:21:53.:21:57.

will you walk the team out?" For Hart to do that,

:21:58.:22:02.

that was special. Then we walked out and just standing

:22:03.:22:04.

there singing the national anthem with Brads on Mother's Day,

:22:05.:22:07.

and being back involved in the England squad

:22:08.:22:09.

and actually playing at Wembley. For me, yeah, it was one of the best

:22:10.:22:11.

moments of my career. And you can see the full

:22:12.:22:21.

interview with Jermaine Defoe on Football Focus tomorrow -

:22:22.:22:24.

that's on BBC One at midday. A man who murdered his brother

:22:25.:22:30.

by setting fire to him has been ordered to spend at least 20

:22:31.:22:34.

years in prison. Cameron Logan, who was 23,

:22:35.:22:36.

died in a fire at the family home His girlfriend Rebecca Williams

:22:37.:22:39.

was seriously injured. Last month, 27-year-old Blair Logan

:22:40.:22:46.

admitted murdering his brother and attempting to murder Ms

:22:47.:22:48.

Williams. Our Scotland correspondent

:22:49.:22:51.

Lorna Gordon reports. Blair Logan, a young man

:22:52.:22:55.

who murdered his brother in an horrific attack at the family

:22:56.:22:59.

home on New Year's Day. The 27-year-old had spent weeks

:23:00.:23:03.

planning his violent actions. He stored petrol in preparation,

:23:04.:23:05.

researched injuries What is very clear is that

:23:06.:23:09.

your stated intention, Your motivation was malice,

:23:10.:23:14.

and you planned this attack I accept your violence

:23:15.:23:21.

here was out of character. This was nonetheless

:23:22.:23:30.

an exceptionally serious crime. In the early hours of January 1st,

:23:31.:23:33.

Logan, wearing a mask, had entered the room

:23:34.:23:36.

where his brother Cameron and girlfriend Rebecca

:23:37.:23:39.

Williams were sleeping. He poured petrol over his brother

:23:40.:23:43.

and then set fire to him. It took him 12 days

:23:44.:23:46.

to admit his crime. Rebecca Williams, seen

:23:47.:23:49.

here to the right of her father, suffered devastating injuries

:23:50.:23:55.

for which she's undergone She also now has a tracheostomy,

:23:56.:23:57.

which may be permanent. The horror of what happened in that

:23:58.:24:04.

room will haunt me forever. It was a calculated

:24:05.:24:09.

and intentional attack. Cameron died in the most cruel way

:24:10.:24:11.

in front of my eyes. The judge, Lady Scott,

:24:12.:24:17.

said she could not imagine the pain Logan's parents would endure,

:24:18.:24:19.

losing in effect both of their sons. In sentencing the 27-year-old,

:24:20.:24:23.

she said that while she accepted he had a limited ability

:24:24.:24:27.

to appreciate the consequences of his actions, he acted with wicked

:24:28.:24:30.

recklessness and was fully criminally responsible

:24:31.:24:33.

for what he had done. Lorna Gordon, BBC News,

:24:34.:24:38.

at the High Court in Edinburgh. Britain's top counterterrorism

:24:39.:24:44.

police officer, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley,

:24:45.:24:47.

has said there's been a change of tempo in Islamist terrorism

:24:48.:24:49.

and that it's becoming His comments follow a warning

:24:50.:24:52.

from the former head of MI5, Lord Evans, that the threat

:24:53.:24:57.

from extremists would remain Our home affairs correspondent

:24:58.:24:59.

Daniel Sandford is with me. Mark Rowley in essence it seems

:25:00.:25:14.

saying that tackling this or dealing with it is a responsibility that

:25:15.:25:18.

forced everybody now? Yes, saying it simply can no longer

:25:19.:25:23.

be just the job of the police and security service, MI5. It has become

:25:24.:25:27.

too big for that. He used the phrase a whole system affect, it means all

:25:28.:25:31.

of society to work to protect against the threat of terrorism. Of

:25:32.:25:36.

course he speaks during a very difficult year. In the four years

:25:37.:25:45.

there have been 13 attempted attacks, this year alone there have

:25:46.:25:50.

been four attacks and speaking this morning he expresses disappointment

:25:51.:25:52.

at those successful attacks. We join policing because we want

:25:53.:25:58.

to protect the public. The events of the last six

:25:59.:26:00.

months have been tragic, and they hurt us because we haven't

:26:01.:26:03.

succeeded as much We're going to have to improve

:26:04.:26:05.

what we do, but it's going to take a whole system effect,

:26:06.:26:10.

not simply counterterrorist specialists and MI5,

:26:11.:26:11.

but local policing, councils and the public to be able to deal

:26:12.:26:13.

with something which is becoming more of a cultish movement and less

:26:14.:26:16.

of a small terrorist organisation. Mark Rowley was pointing out that it

:26:17.:26:25.

used to be in the IRA era or Al-Qaeda era there was a group of

:26:26.:26:31.

small but wicked violent men plotting these attacks but now this

:26:32.:26:36.

cultish movement, much wider in society, that is why he is saying we

:26:37.:26:40.

need society's help and at the same time as saying that we have got the

:26:41.:26:46.

director-general of MI5 who retired in 2015 saying that it will not just

:26:47.:26:50.

be another year or two but 20, 30 more years of this and that is why

:26:51.:26:55.

everybody has to focus on the long-term efforts to try to prevent

:26:56.:26:58.

further attacks. All right, thank you, Daniel

:26:59.:26:59.

Sandford. There are three days

:27:00.:27:02.

of competition left at the World Athletics

:27:03.:27:12.

Championships, and British Athletics has just one gold medal,

:27:13.:27:13.

thanks to that remarkable UK Sport's target of between six

:27:14.:27:16.

and eight medals now looks There was more drama

:27:17.:27:21.

in the stadium last night, with Turkey's Ramil Guliyev

:27:22.:27:24.

a surprise winner of Our sports correspondent Olly Foster

:27:25.:27:26.

reports from the London Stadium. He had been promised a national

:27:27.:27:31.

holiday in Botswana if he won But in a week in which he had

:27:32.:27:35.

spent 48 hours in quarantine with the norovirus, it wasn't to be

:27:36.:27:43.

Isaac Makwala's day. Apart from the euphoria

:27:44.:27:45.

of Ramil Guliyev delivering a first world title for Turkey,

:27:46.:27:48.

it was a final laced Take Wayde van Niekerk,

:27:49.:27:50.

so close to a second gold medal. He said he had let

:27:51.:27:55.

Great Britain down. The team captain, Eilidh Doyle,

:27:56.:28:11.

was last in her 400m hurdles final. She has defended British

:28:12.:28:14.

performances here, saying this is a team for the future,

:28:15.:28:18.

but with just three days to go, these are some

:28:19.:28:21.

of the defining images. Medal hopefuls tearful,

:28:22.:28:25.

wondering what might have been. That said, you are measured

:28:26.:28:30.

in medals and Mo may well end up being our only gold medalist,

:28:31.:28:37.

maybe double gold medalist, but he's leaving and

:28:38.:28:43.

going to the road. So five years on from London,

:28:44.:28:47.

when you think about legacy, you would have to say it's

:28:48.:28:50.

probably not great. At least Edwards' world

:28:51.:28:52.

record still stands. Christian Taylor said he would break

:28:53.:28:53.

it, but the USA now have six golds A few nations have underperformed

:28:54.:28:57.

here and that makes these championships wide open,

:28:58.:29:01.

but of course the hosts But that medal target of six

:29:02.:29:03.

looks increasingly unrealistic. They can still make up ground but,

:29:04.:29:09.

as Laura Muir discovered in qualifying for the 5000m final,

:29:10.:29:12.

it is going to be hard. There is still hope,

:29:13.:29:16.

and how about this for 2012 legacy? Dina Asher-Smith carried

:29:17.:29:19.

Jessica Ennis-Hill's Five years on, she is carrying a lot

:29:20.:29:20.

more in tonight's 200m final. How is it going as we gradually get

:29:21.:29:44.

to the weekend? Not looking too bad at all, a little

:29:45.:29:48.

on the cloudy side, as shady day. Nice pictures coming in nonetheless,

:29:49.:29:52.

look at this beautiful one from John O groats, the very far north of the

:29:53.:29:59.

British Isles, and a stunning one from Norfolk because this is where

:30:00.:30:02.

the best of the weather is today across East Anglia and the

:30:03.:30:06.

south-east. A huge chunk of clear sky across the south-east extending

:30:07.:30:09.

into parts of the Midlands as well but many parts of the West have

:30:10.:30:14.

shady cloud and bits and pieces of rain. All of us will be shrouded

:30:15.:30:18.

with cloud by the time we get to the evening but let's have a look at

:30:19.:30:23.

4pm. Scotland and Northern Ireland pretty overcast, a bit of Brighton

:30:24.:30:27.

around Aberdeenshire and Fife which will come and go but some spots of

:30:28.:30:31.

rain there in the south-west and the West, windy as well. Rain at times

:30:32.:30:38.

across Wales, south-western England, the Midlands as well, basically the

:30:39.:30:41.

further east you are the better the weather is. We have already had

:30:42.:30:47.

temperatures up to about 22 in Norwich, a pleasant day. Look at

:30:48.:30:51.

this band of mostly like rain, that we choose the south-east later on

:30:52.:30:55.

and then tonight it will be a pretty cloudy night for most of us, a few

:30:56.:30:59.

showers. There will be some clear spells and what we have got for the

:31:00.:31:03.

next couple of nights is the Perseid meteor shower so given that we get

:31:04.:31:07.

some lengthy clear spells overnight you might just about catch a meteor

:31:08.:31:18.

or two. Not literally, hopefully! Across the weekend, mostly dry, some

:31:19.:31:22.

sunny spells on the way, not looking too bad. The morning might start

:31:23.:31:27.

cloudy particularly across eastern and southern areas, but eventually

:31:28.:31:30.

the sun should be out, scattered clouds, maybe a few showers here and

:31:31.:31:34.

there on Saturday. Overall not a bad day. Sunday is looking a little bit

:31:35.:31:44.

better. This is Saturday night, first of all, if you want to catch

:31:45.:31:48.

the meteor showers this is the night to do it, Saturday night into Sunday

:31:49.:31:53.

we have got clear weather. He is Sunday, looking pretty good, fewer

:31:54.:31:57.

showers, lots of sunshine around, but noticed the blobs of blue, rain

:31:58.:32:03.

from the Atlantic, a quick outlook to Monday, so after a fine weekend

:32:04.:32:06.

it looks like early next week there are still no signs of summer. I

:32:07.:32:19.

don't know what else to say, it is just not happening. The outlook for

:32:20.:32:23.

next week, there you go, Monday looks a little bit unpleasant but

:32:24.:32:25.

hopefully a little bit of sunshine on Tuesday. But the weekend is

:32:26.:32:26.

looking good. Thank you, I think! Tomasz
