Good afternoon and welcome to the BBC News at One.

North Korea has fired a missile over northern Japan,

:01:37.:01:40.

in a move Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, described as

:01:41.:01:43.

The Communist state has conducted a flurry of missile tests recently,

:01:44.:01:50.

but this is the first time it has fired what is thought to be

a ballistic weapon over Japan - the missile landed in the Pacific.

:04:27.:04:30.

many believe that the Korean Peninsula is not

on the brink of war. Despite all of the rhetoric,

:04:34.:04:37.

the bloodcurdling rhetoric that we hear, we have not seen

things such as the North Korea and South Korea

calling up reservists. Preparing logistics chains and

:04:43.:04:52.

bringing resources into the region. But North Korea's missile tests

:04:53.:04:57.

continue to provoke, despite sanctions and international

:04:58.:05:04.

condemnation. The world seems to have run out

:05:05.:05:07.

of ideas on how to stop them. We've had some word from North

:05:08.:05:21.

Korea. Although he didn'tify the latest missile test, the country's

:05:22.:05:27.

Ambassador to the UN Blaked the US saying it has pushed the Korean

:05:28.:05:32.

peninsula and justified his country saying they are right in taking

:05:33.:05:38.

tough counter terror measures. We've heard from China, a key player in

:05:39.:05:42.

this region, that country too has partly blamed the US for what's

:05:43.:05:43.

happened today. Thank you. Our correspondent Rupert

:05:44.:05:45.

Wingfield-Hayes is in Tokyo. With heard Shinzo Abe describe this

:05:46.:05:55.

as outrageous. What more reaction is there there? Rupert? Well, there's

:05:56.:06:01.

been widespread consternation from the public, particularly people in

:06:02.:06:05.

Northern Japan who woke up to this though morning. This is, as far as I

:06:06.:06:11.

can tell, the first time in living memory an air raid sirens went off

:06:12.:06:16.

in Japan for real and people have been told to find shelter. It is a

:06:17.:06:22.

big shock for people in that area. People here, political analysts,

:06:23.:06:26.

said this is political. It is still about politics. This is North Korean

:06:27.:06:32.

brinkmanship. When you live underneath the missile threat as we

:06:33.:06:36.

do here now, that's not much consolation. People in Japan people

:06:37.:06:40.

very vulnerable. Because of that, the Japanese Government will have to

:06:41.:06:43.

make a tough response. It will want to see the United States make a

:06:44.:06:47.

tough response. The danger is whatever the north Koreans are

:06:48.:06:51.

trying to signal, everybody now is going to feel compelled to act

:06:52.:06:56.

tougher. Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, thank you in Tokyo.

:06:57.:06:58.

Tropical Storm Harvey has turned roads into rivers

:06:59.:07:00.

in America's fourth largest city, Houston in Texas.

:07:01.:07:03.

and forecasters warn more is on the way.

:07:04.:07:08.

It's estimated that 450,000 people will need help,

:07:09.:07:11.

and 30,000 people are likely to require emergency shelter.

:07:12.:07:15.

President Trump has promised swift action

:07:16.:07:18.

Trying to paddle to safety in Texas. The floodwaters are expected to rise

:07:19.:07:34.

further with reports elderly people, some in their nineties, are caught

:07:35.:07:39.

up in it all. There's a lot of older people who have strayingled getting

:07:40.:07:42.

out of their houses. A lot of people have come in with their boats and

:07:43.:07:46.

saved them. I'm feeling a little tired. I'm glad to be here. I want

:07:47.:07:52.

to go in and sit down, put my feet up and getting so to eat. We're

:07:53.:07:56.

going to get something to eat. Thousands of people have been

:07:57.:07:59.

rescued. At least nine are reported to have died in the Houston area.

:08:00.:08:03.

The authorities have been explaining why they decided not to evacuate the

:08:04.:08:11.

city. If 6.5 million people had gotten on our roads without a plan,

:08:12.:08:15.

what happened the last time when people were evacuated from the city

:08:16.:08:19.

of Houston? About 100 people lost their lives. Here's the gator moving

:08:20.:08:26.

along. One woman recorded two alligators swimming in her back

:08:27.:08:31.

garden. Not too far from just climbing on into the backyard and

:08:32.:08:36.

getting right here to the patio. This school was turned into an

:08:37.:08:42.

emergency shelter after Harvey became the more powerful hurricane

:08:43.:08:47.

to hit Texas in over 50 years. President Trump will travel to Texas

:08:48.:08:51.

to view things first-hand. It has now been described as a tropical

:08:52.:08:55.

storm. It is an historic amount of water. There's never been anything

:08:56.:09:00.

like it. The people are handling it amazingly well. The people much

:09:01.:09:05.

Texas, as you know, have really persevered. In Houston, forecasts

:09:06.:09:11.

suggest some areas in and around the city could see up to inches of rain

:09:12.:09:18.

today, about 30 cms. In Dallas, a mega shelter's been prepared for

:09:19.:09:22.

evacuees. Volunteers have been setting up camp beds and cots. You

:09:23.:09:25.

have to go through something where you have lost everything in your

:09:26.:09:34.

life and moved away from your home and go through that trauma, you just

:09:35.:09:38.

need to be loved. It is heartbreaking to see the women and

:09:39.:09:43.

children in such need. I wouldn't feel right to be sitting at home

:09:44.:09:49.

when I can help. Estimates suggest the flooding could destroy up to $20

:09:50.:09:54.

billion in insured properties making it one of the costliest storms in US

:09:55.:09:57.

history. Our North America

:09:58.:10:01.

Correspondent Laura Trevelyan What's happening there? Jane, I'm

:10:02.:10:11.

speaking to you from the banks of Colorado River. We are not on the

:10:12.:10:17.

coast of Texas, we are way inland. Look at the river behind me. It is

:10:18.:10:22.

flooded to historic levels. In this small town of Smith ville homes have

:10:23.:10:28.

been evacuated. There's a centre for evacuees. This is a micro cos much

:10:29.:10:32.

of what's happening across the region. In Houston last night over

:10:33.:10:38.

9,000 people had to sleep in the Convention Centre there because that

:10:39.:10:43.

has been so hard hit. The storm now has gone out into the Gulf of

:10:44.:10:47.

Mexico, but there is every possibility tomorrow it may take

:10:48.:10:51.

another swing in the direction of Houston which has already endured so

:10:52.:10:55.

much. All of this is over in Louisiana, the neighbouring state.

:10:56.:10:58.

There are already evacuations underway. They're expecting 7-11

:10:59.:11:04.

inches of rain. President Trump is coming to Texas to see the relief

:11:05.:11:11.

operations. He's very aware of the importance to appear presidentsial

:11:12.:11:14.

and unifying in this trauma here in Texas

:11:15.:11:19.

Listed companies will, from next year,

:11:20.:11:20.

have to reveal the pay ratio between bosses and workers.

:11:21.:11:24.

It is part of a sear yes, sir of reforms to the way firms are run. It

:11:25.:11:33.

has run into criticism from people who say there should be much

:11:34.:11:37.

stronger measures to curb boardroom pay.

:11:38.:11:44.

The Prime Minister has attacked excessive ex-tech tiff pay. The

:11:45.:11:49.

reputation of business as a whole in recent years has been bruised. When

:11:50.:11:54.

a minority of businesses and business figures appear to gain the

:11:55.:11:57.

system and work to a different set of rules. I'm putting you on

:11:58.:12:03.

warning, this can't go on anymore. A change has to come and this party is

:12:04.:12:08.

going to make it. Last year, the chief executives of the 100 biggest

:12:09.:12:13.

companies list in the London were paid an average of ?4.5 million, 12

:12:14.:12:20.

9 times of the salary of an average British worker. A Chief Executive

:12:21.:12:25.

can make a year's salary in less than three days. When boards are

:12:26.:12:35.

setting pay and when they're disclosing pay, they shouldn't do it

:12:36.:12:39.

just with an eye on pay in the board but they should look at pay across

:12:40.:12:44.

the company and be prepared to set out publicly how they can justify

:12:45.:12:48.

boardroom pay in the context of the pay the rest of the workforce get.

:12:49.:12:54.

The proposals have been welcomed by the accountants who report company

:12:55.:12:58.

figures to shareholders. Anything which will boost transparency around

:12:59.:13:03.

this area and make people understand better how companies run and the say

:13:04.:13:07.

different stakeholders can have and the potential for making a

:13:08.:13:10.

difference is Vitaly important. But the reforms can be confusing.

:13:11.:13:16.

Charlie Mayfield was recently paid just over ?1 million. 73 times the

:13:17.:13:23.

ampling pay of non-management staff. The former US head of investment

:13:24.:13:31.

bang Michael Sherwood was paid 45 times as much as the highly paid

:13:32.:13:35.

employees who average over 45,000 each. The The problems with pay seem

:13:36.:13:46.

to be with big companies and if you look at the historical performance

:13:47.:13:50.

who perform the least. They have lobbying power to resist this stuff.

:13:51.:13:55.

But the political impetus does seem to be growing for change. In today's

:13:56.:14:01.

reforms, there's no sign of a previous promise of annual binding

:14:02.:14:05.

votes by shareholders op director's pay. The pay gap between directors

:14:06.:14:09.

and employees will become more obvious than ever. It is less

:14:10.:14:11.

obvious how that gap might shrink. The President of the European

:14:12.:14:14.

Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, has said none of the Brexit position

:14:15.:14:17.

papers published by the UK government are satisfactory,

:14:18.:14:20.

and there is still an enormous amount to be settled before talks

:14:21.:14:22.

about a trade deal can begin. His comments come during the latest

:14:23.:14:26.

round of Brexit talks in Brussels. Our correspondent

:14:27.:14:30.

Adam Fleming is there. What does this tell us about how

:14:31.:14:42.

negotiations are going? Jane, yet more evidence, if more was needed,

:14:43.:14:46.

there is frustration on both sides around this process. Presidents

:14:47.:14:49.

Juncker, the boss of the European Commission, the organisation running

:14:50.:14:54.

these talks on the EU's side has criticised the Government's homework

:14:55.:14:59.

saying its position papers were not satisfactory which will rangle with

:15:00.:15:02.

the civil servants who spent a year writing them. He said things will

:15:03.:15:08.

stick to the EU timetable of settling Brexit-related issues first

:15:09.:15:11.

before talking about trade and the future relationship which will annoy

:15:12.:15:15.

David Davis who wants to do both at the same time. There are

:15:16.:15:17.

disagreements about things on the table. On the rights of EU citizens

:15:18.:15:26.

in the UK after Brexit, the EU wants them overseen by the British Court

:15:27.:15:31.

of Justice. On the issue how much money the EU is owed by the UK, the

:15:32.:15:38.

EU wants to talk about numbers and commitments, the UK will call into

:15:39.:15:40.

question whether they are even allowed to be asked to pay any money

:15:41.:15:46.

at all. That is where we are. Adam Fleming, thank you in Brussels.

:15:47.:15:48.

A four-year-old boy has died after being found in a swimming pool

:15:49.:15:51.

at an activity centre in Bideford, in north Devon.

:15:52.:15:54.

What can you tell us? Police were called here yesterday afternoon,

:15:55.:16:10.

bank holiday Monday about 3.00pm. This four-year-old boy had gone

:16:11.:16:13.

missing. There was an extensive search of the site, including the

:16:14.:16:17.

use of the force helicopter. At the end of that search, the little boy

:16:18.:16:22.

was found in a swimming pool. He was taken to hospital but pronounced

:16:23.:16:27.

dead at North Devon hospital. The police say they are treating his

:16:28.:16:33.

death as unexplained. We've had a statement from the charity Devon

:16:34.:16:36.

Narcotics Anonymous saying the little boy who drowned was with a

:16:37.:16:40.

family who had come here with that group. Have come here every year for

:16:41.:16:44.

the last few years. They say in a statement, something has gone

:16:45.:16:47.

horrifically wrong this time. They say everybody on the camp joined

:16:48.:16:52.

hands here in a circle last night to remember the little boy and to pray

:16:53.:16:56.

for him and his family. In that statement, the group says one of the

:16:57.:17:00.

activities they do is have supervised use of a swimming pool

:17:01.:17:03.

with trained lifeguards. In the last few minutes, the owners of Knapp

:17:04.:17:10.

House issued a statement expressing great sadness and sympathy. They say

:17:11.:17:18.

the group had use of the pool on for recreational use and it was not

:17:19.:17:26.

planned. Thank you. Jon Kay in North Devon.

The Queensferry Crossing was lit up last night in a special show,

:18:10.:18:13.

to mark the formal handover of the new bridge to

:18:14.:18:16.

It will open to traffic tomorrow, joining the Forth road

:18:17.:18:21.

and rail bridges connecting Edinburgh and Fife.

:18:22.:18:23.

Our Scotland Correspondent Lorna Gordon is there.

:18:24.:18:31.

This is one of the busiest transport arteries in Scotland, people who use

:18:32.:18:39.

the other bridges here or who live in the communities on this stretch

:18:40.:18:42.

have watched with interest as the Queensferry Crossing has risen up

:18:43.:18:47.

out of the waters of the fourth and up into the sky and now the UK's

:18:48.:18:51.

tallest bridge is on the verge, finally, of opening.

:18:52.:18:53.

Lighting up Scotland's latest bridge.

:18:54.:18:55.

The Queensferry Crossing in the spotlight before opening

:18:56.:18:57.

In its own right, it is a feat of design,

:18:58.:19:05.

In its own right, it is absolutely amazing.

:19:06.:19:11.

It is in every sense, in every way, an amazing achievement.

:19:12.:19:14.

The scale of this construction is impressive.

:19:15.:19:20.

It's the longest bridge of its kind in the world and this is a chance

:19:21.:19:23.

for some of the many thousands who worked on it to

:19:24.:19:26.

It's the end of a long journey but it's been a wonderful journey.

:19:27.:19:35.

Stressful journey but the most rewarding job I've ever been

:19:36.:19:37.

These guys have put a lot of work into this place.

:19:38.:19:46.

In years to come, there will be grandchildren of mine saying,

:19:47.:19:49.

There are now three bridges across this stretch of the Forth,

:19:50.:19:54.

the legacy of the generations of workers who built them.

:19:55.:19:56.

For some, the story of these crossings, stretching back

:19:57.:20:03.

three centuries, is part of their family's history.

:20:04.:20:05.

My great grandad worked on the Forth Rail Bridge, my grandad

:20:06.:20:09.

worked on the Forth Road Bridge and I worked on the

:20:10.:20:11.

Three bridges, three centuries, all special in their own way.

:20:12.:20:15.

Definitely the Queensferry Crossing because it feels

:20:16.:20:20.

After seeing it all come together, I'm fair away with it.

:20:21.:20:28.

I am proud to have been working on the bridge.

:20:29.:20:32.

Those who travel this busy route have had to contend with plenty

:20:33.:20:35.

of roadworks as the new bridge has taken shape.

:20:36.:20:37.

There have been miles of cones out there for a long time now,

:20:38.:20:44.

while the bridge was under construction.

:20:45.:20:45.

I'm sure people want to see what the bridge looks like.

:20:46.:20:51.

We ask people to drive carefully, keep their eyes on the road.

:20:52.:20:54.

For now, it's all about admiring the view.

:20:55.:20:56.

Tomorrow, a chance for all to enjoy the journey across this latest

:20:57.:21:00.

There is a lot of symbolism surrounding the Queensferry

:21:01.:21:15.

Crossing, next Monday the Queen will officially open the new bridge

:21:16.:21:19.

exactly 53 years after she opened the Forth road bridge, before that

:21:20.:21:25.

51,000 people who won tickets in the public ballot will get to cross the

:21:26.:21:29.

Queensferry Crossing in what is described as a once-in-a-lifetime

:21:30.:21:32.

opportunity. Thank you very much.

:21:33.:21:35.

Today was meant to see Waterloo station in London get back

:21:36.:21:38.

to normal, after nearly a month of disruption because

:21:39.:21:40.

But rush hour services on several lines into Britain's busiest railway

:21:41.:21:44.

station were cancelled, amid signalling problems.

:21:45.:21:45.

The head of Network Rail has apologised to passengers.

:21:46.:21:47.

Our correspondent Dan Johnson reports.

:21:48.:21:54.

The train now arriving at Waterloo is delayed and crowded.

:21:55.:21:56.

And that's one of the better services.

:21:57.:21:59.

Some passengers waited ages for trains that never arrived,

:22:00.:22:03.

others got on board only to find they were being taken

:22:04.:22:05.

They are getting used to this, after a miserable

:22:06.:22:09.

But this morning was supposed to be different.

:22:10.:22:13.

We've all been saying we were sure it would be overrunning.

:22:14.:22:21.

So I had to get a train to Canning Street, walk

:22:22.:22:24.

from Canning Street to Bank, get the tube from Bank to Waterloo

:22:25.:22:27.

and now I am waiting for a train to Kingston.

:22:28.:22:29.

Improvement is good but yeah, it's a bit annoying.

:22:30.:22:33.

Network Rail's orange army took over Waterloo at the start of August,

:22:34.:22:37.

under a huge project to extend the platform is so longer trains can

:22:38.:22:41.

deliver more passengers through the country's busiest station.

:22:42.:22:44.

But important safety checks on new signals took

:22:45.:22:48.

longer than expected, hitting the post bank

:22:49.:22:49.

The station is much quieter at this time of year which is why they do

:22:50.:22:58.

the engineering over the summer, but still a departure board

:22:59.:23:00.

which reads delayed, delayed, cancelled, delayed does not look

:23:01.:23:02.

good for Network Rail after weeks of disruption.

:23:03.:23:06.

So this morning they were here to say sorry.

:23:07.:23:10.

We reopened the station following the most complex

:23:11.:23:13.

and significant engineering project that has taken place at this station

:23:14.:23:16.

There were some delays to the service this morning

:23:17.:23:21.

and that's due to some overrunning work we were doing

:23:22.:23:23.

on the signalling, but we hope to get a normal service back

:23:24.:23:30.

the passengers by this afternoon's peak.

:23:31.:23:32.

People will say this is a huge project, three and a half

:23:33.:23:34.

weeks of disruption, how could it be allowed to overrun?

:23:35.:23:37.

A project like this is extremely complicated and we have had

:23:38.:23:40.

a thousand people working round-the-clock 24 hours a day seven

:23:41.:23:50.

days a week for the last three and a half weeks to deliver it.

:23:51.:23:53.

Problems could carry on here this afternoon and different engineering

:23:54.:23:56.

projects mean some other London stations are closed this week.

:23:57.:24:00.

Waterloo faces further upgrade work in the next few months.

:24:01.:24:03.

Building a better railway isn't cheap and it's far from simple.

:24:04.:24:06.

Dan Johnson, BBC News, at Waterloo station.

:24:07.:24:08.

Despite the endless adverts and the annoying phone calls,

:24:09.:24:10.

the Financial Conduct Authority says fewer than half of people

:24:11.:24:12.

who were mis-sold payment protection insurance,

:24:13.:24:13.

The regulator is launching its own advertising campaign

:24:14.:24:23.

to encourage people to act, before the deadline

:24:24.:24:25.

Our personal finance reporter Kevin Peachey has more.

:24:26.:24:29.

Now the actor is the head of a campaign by the financial regulator.

:24:30.:24:41.

Explaining that compensation claims will be terminated

:24:42.:24:45.

After the 29th of August 2019 you will no longer be able

:24:46.:24:50.

PPI was designed to cover loan repayments if policyholders fell

:24:51.:24:58.

It was mis-sold to people like Eddie.

:24:59.:25:01.

He fought a three-year battle to get his money back.

:25:02.:25:05.

First offer that they gave was ?2.86, whereas the actual amount

:25:06.:25:10.

they ended up paying me was a four figure sum.

:25:11.:25:13.

I had an account with this bank from when I was a little kid,

:25:14.:25:16.

I had my home insurance with them, I had my mortgage with them,

:25:17.:25:20.

I had pretty much everything with them and obviously I don't have

:25:21.:25:22.

that any more because there is a definite distrust between me

:25:23.:25:25.

Eddie's were among the 64 million policies sold in the UK,

:25:26.:25:31.

So far 12 million people have claimed a total

:25:32.:25:35.

Banks have set aside more than ?37 billion to pay people back.

:25:36.:25:44.

A lot of our work over the last few years has shown that this

:25:45.:25:47.

was in fact mis-sold on an industrial scale.

:25:48.:25:50.

So however those numbers go, we think there are millions

:25:51.:25:53.

of people out there who are probably still owed thousands of pounds.

:25:54.:25:59.

The two year deadline will encourage victims to make a claim,

:26:00.:26:02.

which they can do themselves and for free.

:26:03.:26:05.

But it also means more of these, text messages and calls from claims

:26:06.:26:10.

management companies who will offer to do the paperwork but take a cut

:26:11.:26:13.

Claims companies say without them many would not seek

:26:14.:26:18.

Consumer groups want it to be easier to claim yourself.

:26:19.:26:23.

Either way, with billions available in refunds,

:26:24.:26:28.

it's still well short of what Arnie might call a total recall.

:26:29.:26:30.

There could be a thrilling finish in store to the 2nd cricket test,

:26:31.:26:40.

with England and the West Indies both chasing victory at Headingley.

:26:41.:26:42.

West Indies began the day requiring 322 to win and level the series -

:26:43.:26:47.

while England's bowlers needed 10 wickets on the final day.

:26:48.:26:50.

From Headingley, here's Patrick Gearey.

:26:51.:26:59.

At Headingley, they take their heroes seriously,

:27:00.:27:01.

preserving forever the heads and headlines of famous

:27:02.:27:04.

but would this be the day Leeds saw a Lancastrian make history?

:27:05.:27:11.

The only thing dull about this Test match has been this morning 's

:27:12.:27:16.

weather but poor Jimmy Anderson these conditions are perfect as he

:27:17.:27:19.

looks to become just the sixth bowler to take 500 Test wickets.

:27:20.:27:22.

Anderson does some of his best work in the murk.

:27:23.:27:25.

It allows him to move the ball, to deceive the batsmen,

:27:26.:27:27.

His bowling partner, Stuart Broad, should have

:27:28.:27:32.

Few expected the West Indies to bat with the care

:27:33.:27:38.

Their opening pair got through a hazardous first half-hour,

:27:39.:27:42.

but as the clock struck 12, Broad struck first.

:27:43.:27:44.

Getting out is never fun, but it is rarely so frustrating

:27:45.:27:50.

As bowler Broad tried to catch Brathwaite,

:27:51.:28:00.

he inadvertently deflected the ball to the stumps, condemning Kyle.

:28:01.:28:02.

This West Indies team had been proving people wrong all Test long.

:28:03.:28:08.

A match that has held the attention through nearly four and half

:28:09.:28:12.

engrossing days continues to offer something for everyone.

:28:13.:28:17.

Strictly Come Dancing's Class of 2017 lined up at a glitzy red

:28:18.:28:21.

carpet event last night in which new head judge

:28:22.:28:23.

Shirley Ballas also made her first appearance.

:28:24.:28:27.

Bruno Tonioli paid tribute to the show's host for many years,

:28:28.:28:31.

Sir Bruce Forsyth, who died 10 days ago.

:28:32.:28:33.

Our entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba reports.

:28:34.:28:40.

Glitterballs and glamour, sequins and sparkles.

:28:41.:28:44.

This year's new celebrities together for Strictly.

:28:45.:28:48.

They have been busy rehearsing for their launch show,

:28:49.:28:50.

the first to be broadcast since the death

:28:51.:28:52.

There will of course be a special tribute.

:28:53.:28:55.

He is part our lives, he is part of this country.

:28:56.:29:01.

As in previous series, the programme will be aiming

:29:02.:29:09.

to deliver entertainment, and perhaps even the odd surprise.

:29:10.:29:14.

Richard, we saw you come down that red carpet.

:29:15.:29:16.

I'm not sure if they will be good for anyone.

:29:17.:29:23.

But I'm releasing them, they are bubbling like a volcano

:29:24.:29:26.

Debbie, you've loved Strictly as a viewer.

:29:27.:29:35.

How do you think you'll enjoy it as a contestant?

:29:36.:29:38.

I don't think there's any other way to do it.

:29:39.:29:42.

Has your Saturdays band-mate Frankie, who of course did the show,

:29:43.:29:46.

Frankie has been so excited about me doing this.

:29:47.:29:49.

She hasn't actually given me any advice yet but I will definitely be

:29:50.:29:52.

on the phone being like, Frankie, tell me any tips you can!

:29:53.:29:55.

You are the first contestant to be in the show with

:29:56.:29:58.

How do you feel about being a bit of a trailblazer?

:29:59.:30:02.

It shows the way that the show and life in general is going.

:30:03.:30:06.

This country, this world, we need more inclusion,

:30:07.:30:08.

As well as new contestants, there is also a new head judge.

:30:09.:30:13.

Shirley Ballas taking over from Len Goodman.

:30:14.:30:18.

I don't feel too much pressure because I feel I have a good

:30:19.:30:20.

So they've been taking care of me today.

:30:21.:30:24.

I don't feel any pressure at the moment, but we

:30:25.:30:26.

Next month's launch show will give the public their first chance to see

:30:27.:30:32.

It will also be an opportunity for the programme and the viewers

:30:33.:30:39.

to remember Sir Bruce, a man who helped make Strictly one

:30:40.:30:42.

I feel nervous just watching that. Let's move on.

:30:43.:30:55.

Absolutely, wanted to give a perspective of how much rainfall has

:30:56.:31:11.

fallen in Texas, historic rainfall, about over a metre, they could get

:31:12.:31:16.

another 0.4 of the meter and if that happens it is two and a half to

:31:17.:31:20.

three times what London gets in a year. And that has come in just a

:31:21.:31:26.

few days. The red symbol is the centre of the storm, that is what

:31:27.:31:32.

drives the weather system so dreadful conditions continuing. A

:31:33.:31:36.

bit of blue skies and cloud across the UK, hit and miss but a lot more

:31:37.:31:44.

cloudy compared to what we had yesterday. Yesterday was the warmest

:31:45.:31:49.

late August bank holiday Monday in decades. Today the temperature has

:31:50.:31:52.

already dropped in many areas, quite a lot of cloud, we are in the

:31:53.:32:00.

mid-20s, quite far north yesterday, today down to 17 but retaining some

:32:01.:32:05.

of the heat in the south-east, could be up to around 26, 27, 28, warm in

:32:06.:32:12.

the far south-east. Could be a crack of thunder, chance of a bit of rain,

:32:13.:32:19.

but for most of us it's a relatively clear night, quite fresh and

:32:20.:32:22.

steadily turning fresher in the south as well. Different day

:32:23.:32:26.

tomorrow, tomorrow across the southern half of the UK there will

:32:27.:32:31.

be even more cloud and a greater chance of catching rain, could be

:32:32.:32:35.

heavy rain for a time but some of it is moving to the East. I think

:32:36.:32:41.

overall it's the south-east tomorrow which will get the biggest cloud and

:32:42.:32:45.

the more persistent rain, this is what it looks like around 4pm. East

:32:46.:32:53.

Anglia, London, central southern England getting rainfall.

:32:54.:32:56.

Temperatures in the teams for most of us but West are now Northern

:32:57.:33:04.

areas it's a different stories. 17 in Belfast, 15 in Glasgow, still

:33:05.:33:08.

quite fresh but at least you have sunshine but occasionally there will

:33:09.:33:13.

be some showers around. That rain in the south-east will continue into

:33:14.:33:16.

the evening but you get a sense the weather front is moving out of the

:33:17.:33:21.

scene as well so the weather will be improving into Thursday and Thursday

:33:22.:33:26.

and Friday it's a mixture of sun and showers and as we head into the

:33:27.:33:29.

weekend the good news is the weather is looking a bit better.

:33:30.:33:32.

That's all from the BBC News at One, so it's goodbye from me -

:33:33.:33:36.

and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:33:37.:33:40.
