Under huge pressure -

the Prime Minister scrambles

0:00:050:00:07

to find a solution after failing

to reach a deal

0:00:070:00:10

at the Brexit talks in Brussels.

0:00:100:00:13

The Cabinet's been briefed this

morning after discussions stalled

0:00:130:00:15

when the DUP said it would not

accept the proposed deal

0:00:150:00:17

for the Irish border.

0:00:170:00:20

But in the Commons this lunchtime,

0:00:200:00:22

the Brexit Secretary, David Davis,

says he's still optimistic.

0:00:220:00:32

As was made clear yesterday, all

parties remain confident of reaching

0:00:320:00:36

a positive conclusion in the course

of the week.

Mr Speaker, what an

0:00:360:00:41

embarrassment. The last 24 hours

have given a new meaning to the

0:00:410:00:44

phrase coalition of chaos.

0:00:440:00:46

We'll be live in Westminster

and Belfast for all the latest.

0:00:460:00:49

Also this lunchtime:

A warning for parents,

0:00:490:00:51

sex offenders are exploiting

the growing number of children using

0:00:510:00:54

of live online streaming services.

0:00:540:00:56

Fresh hope for millions

of people with type 2 diabetes -

0:00:560:00:59

we'll have the results

of a new trial that doctors

0:00:590:01:01

are calling a watershed moment.

0:01:010:01:04

Mass evacuations in California -

0:01:040:01:05

thousands of people flee their homes

north of Los Angeles

0:01:050:01:08

as a fast-moving wildfire

rips through the area.

0:01:080:01:16

A glimmer of hope for England at

last in the Ashes as they go into

0:01:160:01:20

the final day needing 178 runs to

win the second Test.

0:01:200:01:25

And in sport,

0:01:250:01:26

we'll find out whether Russia will

be banned from the Winter Olympics.

0:01:260:01:29

The IOC will decide

whether state-sponsored doping

0:01:290:01:30

is still part of their regime.

0:01:300:01:34

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News At One.

0:01:520:01:54

"The show is now in London."

0:01:540:01:57

That's what the European Commission

said this morning,

0:01:570:01:59

as they made it clear

that they were ready to resume talks

0:01:590:02:01

as soon as the UK was ready.

0:02:010:02:04

When that will be is unclear.

0:02:040:02:07

This morning Theresa May

has been briefing the Cabinet

0:02:070:02:09

after yesterday's crucial talks

in Brussels ended without a deal

0:02:090:02:12

allowing Brexit negotiations

to move onto the next stage.

0:02:120:02:16

The Prime Minister had to

pull out of a deal

0:02:160:02:19

that would have kick-started

trade talks

0:02:190:02:21

after the Democratic Unionist Party

stepped in and rejected it.

0:02:210:02:23

Our political correspondent Iain

Watson reports from Westminster.

0:02:230:02:32

Labour has branded the Government

and embarrassing and, but the Brexit

0:02:320:02:36

Secretary who was confident of

sufficient progress this week. -- an

0:02:360:02:40

embarrassment.

0:02:400:02:43

It is 320 miles long with almost as

many crossing points, but the

0:02:430:02:47

British and Irish governments do not

want this to become a so-called hard

0:02:470:02:50

border after Brexit with customs

posts and checkpoints, but it has

0:02:500:02:55

now become painfully apparent that

in the current political landscape,

0:02:550:02:59

that is easier said than done. This

morning the Prime Minister said

0:02:590:03:03

there were still encouraging signs.

Our talks with the European Union

0:03:030:03:08

have made a lot of progress, there

are still a couple of issues we need

0:03:080:03:14

to work on.

Here is the core of the

problem - the Irish government said

0:03:140:03:19

to guarantee there was no hard

border after Brexit, rules and

0:03:190:03:23

regulations should remain the same

across the whole island of Ireland,

0:03:230:03:26

but the DUP believes this would

create an internal border between

0:03:260:03:30

Northern Ireland and the rest of the

UK. They and many Conservatives find

0:03:300:03:35

that unacceptable.

Well, I don't

know what possibly unwise promises

0:03:350:03:39

have been made to the Irish

governance, but it would be

0:03:390:03:43

completely unacceptable to the DUP

and many in our party if there was a

0:03:430:03:47

separate arrangement for Northern

Ireland.

And the views of the DUP

0:03:470:03:51

here at Westminster are crucial,

they are propping up Theresa May's

0:03:510:04:02

minority government. Downing Street

are confident they can meet the

0:04:020:04:04

concerns of their Northern Ireland

allies, but in the House of Commons

0:04:040:04:06

today Labour were keen to exploit

the Government's current

0:04:060:04:08

difficulties.

Mr Speaker, what an

embarrassment. It is wanting, this

0:04:080:04:12

despicable, to go to Brussels and

fallout with those on the other side

0:04:120:04:17

of the negotiating table, but quite

another to fall out with those

0:04:170:04:21

supposedly on your own side of the

negotiating table.

We recognise that

0:04:210:04:25

as we exit, we must respect the

integrity of the single market and

0:04:250:04:29

the customs union, but we must

equally respect the integrity of the

0:04:290:04:33

United Kingdom.

But a former Labour

Northern Ireland Secretary there is

0:04:330:04:40

only one way to solve the problem of

the Irish border.

You are not going

0:04:400:04:43

to be able to find a solution to the

Irish border problem and less

0:04:430:04:45

Unionists feel they are remaining

still within the UK, and that means,

0:04:450:04:52

in the same common and customs union

as not just the rest of the UK, but

0:04:520:04:56

the Irish Republic and therefore the

European Union as well. There is no

0:04:560:05:03

alternative to this.

That kind of

deal is unlikely to appeal to the

0:05:030:05:07

ministers who voted for Brexit.

Confident of a deal, Mr Johnson?

And

0:05:070:05:14

Theresa May's Cabinet colleagues

remained tight-lipped on the

0:05:140:05:16

prospect of any de la Torre Iain

Watson, BBC News. -- any deal at

0:05:160:05:22

all.

0:05:220:05:24

In a moment, we'll speak

to our assistant political editor,

0:05:240:05:26

Norman Smith, in Westminster,

0:05:260:05:28

and our Ireland correspondent Chris

Page.

0:05:280:05:32

Will Arlene Foster be talking to the

Prime Minister any time soon?

She

0:05:320:05:37

was invited to London to talk to the

Prime Minister today, but the deputy

0:05:370:05:42

leader, Nigel Dodds will instead

meet with the Chief Whip at

0:05:420:05:46

Westminster, and it is expected that

he may will talk to Arlene Foster by

0:05:460:05:50

phone today and the Prime Minister

will also telephoned the Sinn Fein

0:05:500:05:55

leader here at Stormont, Michelle

O'Neill. The Irish and has been

0:05:550:05:59

holding a meeting in Dublin today.

-- the Irish government. Their

0:05:590:06:04

foreign affairs Minister said Dublin

wanted to give Britain what he

0:06:040:06:07

described as time and space to deal

with difficult political issues, and

0:06:070:06:10

he said that the Irish government

were prepared to work with the

0:06:100:06:13

British Government on what he

described as presentation issues

0:06:130:06:17

around the text that had been agreed

on the Irish border issue, but he

0:06:170:06:20

also said that I -- Ireland would

not move away from the core meaning

0:06:200:06:27

of what had been agreed. So we have

an indication from the Dublin

0:06:270:06:31

government that as regards their

core position on the border

0:06:310:06:34

question, they are not prepared to

move on, but they are prepared to

0:06:340:06:38

move on the language that is used

whenever the draft document is put

0:06:380:06:43

forward for approval. Now, what is

also interesting is that as regards

0:06:430:06:48

what the DUP's next move might be,

the Scottish Conservative leader,

0:06:480:06:52

Ruth Davidson, has made a statement

today that if regulatory alignment

0:06:520:06:58

in the number of areas is the

requirement for a frictionless

0:06:580:07:01

border, the Prime Minister should

conclude this must be on a UK wide

0:07:010:07:05

basis. Two senior figures in the

DUP, the Chief Whip and a former

0:07:050:07:09

Stormont minister, have both

commented on Twitter about that, and

0:07:090:07:13

they have basically said that Ruth

Davidson is thinking along the right

0:07:130:07:16

lines. So perhaps that is the DUP

signalling that one possible

0:07:160:07:19

solution to this might be that the

whole notion of the same rules and

0:07:190:07:24

regulations between Northern Ireland

and the Irish Republic could work if

0:07:240:07:26

the same rules and regulation is

also applied to England, Scotland

0:07:260:07:31

and Wales.

Let's talk to Norman

Smith in Westminster, so little time

0:07:310:07:36

to do this, and it is far more than

playing with words, with

0:07:360:07:40

presentational issues, can Theresa

May rescue it?

It is a huge

0:07:400:07:45

challenge, and the hope is that when

she gets on the blower to Arlene

0:07:450:07:49

Foster this afternoon, maybe she can

begin to smooth things over. The

0:07:490:07:55

view in government is that this is

all a terrible misunderstanding,

0:07:550:07:59

that the DUP got the wrong end of

the stick about what the British

0:07:590:08:02

Government were proposing and what

they were suggesting was a much more

0:08:020:08:06

limited form of cross-border

co-operation, they were never

0:08:060:08:09

suggesting that Northern Ireland

should be halved in or half out of

0:08:090:08:12

the EU. The trouble is that is not

how the DUP view it, they don't

0:08:120:08:18

think they've misunderstood

anything. For them, this is a

0:08:180:08:22

fundamental issue of principle -

they are not prepared to have a

0:08:220:08:27

separate agreement for Northern

Ireland which creates a divide with

0:08:270:08:30

the rest of the UK, which they

believe might threaten their

0:08:300:08:33

position in the UK. And the way

these negotiations have been handled

0:08:330:08:38

have made the mood music all the

harder. Even some Tory MPs have been

0:08:380:08:43

a gas at the idea that the DUP were

not shown the text of the proposed

0:08:430:08:49

agreement, and then on top of all

that, you have the clock ticking

0:08:490:08:53

very, very loudly. With just days to

reach a deal where we know that the

0:08:530:09:00

DUP are tenacious negotiators, which

means that if it is not possible to

0:09:000:09:04

get an agreement in the next few

days, then many MPs believe that the

0:09:040:09:09

UK could be leaving the EU without a

deal.

Norman Smith in Westminster,

0:09:090:09:13

thank you.

0:09:130:09:17

Parents are being warned

about the dangers

0:09:170:09:18

of live online streaming services,

after it emerged sex offenders

0:09:180:09:22

are increasingly using them

to manipulate their victims.

0:09:220:09:25

The warning from the National Crime

Agency follows a week-long operation

0:09:250:09:28

by UK authorities against

child sexual exploitation,

0:09:280:09:29

which led to the arrest

of more than 190 people.

0:09:290:09:32

Angus Crawford reports.

0:09:320:09:36

Hands up all those who have

used live streaming.

0:09:360:09:40

Aged 13 and 14, they know about apps

which let children broadcast

0:09:400:09:43

live from their phones.

0:09:430:09:45

Today, they're talking

about how to do it safely.

0:09:450:09:50

Somebody could be trying

to trick you, couldn't they?

0:09:500:09:53

The apps are quick to download,

easy to use.

0:09:530:09:55

These pupils could go live

in the playground, the street,

0:09:550:09:57

or even their own bedrooms.

0:09:570:09:59

Sometimes it can be quite dangerous,

because if someone's

0:09:590:10:03

following someone that they don't

know, they will be able to see it,

0:10:030:10:07

Like you don't know

who is watching you.

0:10:070:10:09

The real problem with some of these

apps is there's no proper checking

0:10:090:10:12

of age or identification,

so that means a live streaming

0:10:120:10:15

service with a 17 rating could be

used by children as young as this -

0:10:150:10:18

or even younger, eight or nine.

0:10:180:10:22

Look at this - a boy and a girl

on the app Periscope.

0:10:220:10:27

Now read the comments.

0:10:270:10:29

We don't want to identify them -

she is just nine.

0:10:290:10:32

Almost a thousand people

are watching,

0:10:320:10:34

and they're mostly adult men.

0:10:340:10:37

We can't show you

the worst of the comments.

0:10:370:10:40

Periscope told us it had

zero tolerance for this kind

0:10:400:10:44

of behaviour, but we found it

on other apps too, and

0:10:440:10:47

for the children caught up in it,

the consequences can be devastating.

0:10:470:10:51

I found her inconsolable

in her bedroom...

0:10:510:10:54

This is an actress,

but the words are true -

0:10:540:10:57

those of a mother whose

ten-year-old daughter

0:10:570:11:00

tried out the app Omegle for fun.

0:11:000:11:05

He switched his webcam on,

showed her his private parts,

0:11:050:11:10

and asked her to take photos

of herself, which she did.

0:11:100:11:16

She was terrified

by what had happened

0:11:160:11:20

and scared of what she'd done.

0:11:200:11:24

It offers offenders an immediate

connection to children and young

0:11:240:11:28

people that is one to one,

it allows them to manipulate

0:11:280:11:32

children and young people,

offer excitement, sympathy,

0:11:320:11:34

connection, emotional connection,

involve them with games

0:11:340:11:36

and trickery, and we see children

getting basically manipulated to do

0:11:360:11:38

things that ultimately

they're very uncomfortable about

0:11:380:11:40

and don't want to do.

0:11:400:11:47

A campaign video launched today

warning about the dangers of

0:11:470:11:51

live streaming aimed at

young people and their parents

0:11:510:11:57

and posing a stark question -

when children broadcast live

0:11:570:12:01

to the world from their own

bedrooms, can they really stay safe?

0:12:010:12:06

Angus Crawford, BBC News.

0:12:060:12:10

Google has announced plans

to employ 10,000 people

0:12:100:12:13

to search for violent

and extremist content

0:12:130:12:16

on its video-sharing website,

YouTube.

0:12:160:12:18

The website's chief executive says

the company will also track videos

0:12:180:12:21

that risk children's safety

0:12:210:12:22

and will make more use of technology

that finds extremist videos.

0:12:220:12:29

A Spanish judge has withdrawn

a European arrest warrant

0:12:290:12:32

for the former Catalan president.

0:12:320:12:35

Carles Puigdemont fled

to Belgium a month ago,

0:12:350:12:37

with four other ministers,

0:12:370:12:40

after attempting a unilateral

declaration of independence.

0:12:400:12:42

Meanwhile, campaigning has begun

for regional elections in Catalonia.

0:12:420:12:47

The new-car market has declined

for the eighth month in a row,

0:12:470:12:50

according to industry figures.

0:12:500:12:53

Fewer than 164,000 new cars

were registered last month,

0:12:530:12:56

down 11.2% on the same

month last year.

0:12:560:13:00

The Society for Motor Manufacturers

and Traders blamed the Government

0:13:000:13:03

for prompting a sharp drop

in demand for diesel cars.

0:13:030:13:10

Commuters are facing their

biggest jump in average train

0:13:100:13:13

fares in five years,

after the rail industry said

0:13:130:13:15

everything from season tickets

to off-peak leisure tickets

0:13:150:13:17

would rise in cost.

0:13:170:13:20

Prices will go up by an average

of 3.4% from the 2nd of January

0:13:200:13:23

for both regulated

and unregulated tickets.

0:13:230:13:29

But there'll be a previously

announced rise of 3.6%

0:13:290:13:34

for many commuters paying for season

tickets, fares which are regulated

0:13:340:13:37

by the Government and represent

around half of all tickets.

0:13:370:13:41

It's infuriated commuter groups -

fewer than half of passengers

0:13:410:13:44

are satisfied with the value

for money of train tickets,

0:13:440:13:47

according to the passenger

watchdog, Transport Focus.

0:13:470:13:51

Richard Westcott is at East Croydon

station in South London.

0:13:510:13:59

What has been the response to people

you have been talking to there?

0:13:590:14:02

I will give you three guesses! I go

through this process every year, we

0:14:020:14:08

all do, the campaign groups say

enough is enough, you have to freeze

0:14:080:14:13

rises, they go up every year, people

are being priced off the railways,

0:14:130:14:17

young people especially are

struggling because it costs so much

0:14:170:14:19

just to get to work, and yet fares

go up every year because train

0:14:190:14:24

companies and the Government say

they are pumping billions into the

0:14:240:14:28

network for better services, which

costs money. Anyway, you ask what

0:14:280:14:32

people think - we asked some.

0:14:320:14:34

I'm from Leicester,

I travel down to London

0:14:340:14:36

on a regular basis for work,

and it's frankly extortionate.

0:14:360:14:39

It's not just the price as well,

it's also the service,

0:14:390:14:41

which is pretty miserable at times.

0:14:410:14:43

I ended up leaving my job because

the trains were so unreliable,

0:14:430:14:46

so I wouldn't say it's value

for money at all.

0:14:460:14:48

Just imagine if a business

had to take a hit like that,

0:14:480:14:51

where one-twelfth of their income

is spent on travel -

0:14:510:14:53

or probably more.

0:14:530:14:54

It is a high one, but the railways

really need a lot of refurbing.

0:14:540:14:59

So you think, you know,

that money needs to be...

0:14:590:15:02

It's a difficult one,

and I think we have to be prepared

0:15:020:15:05

to pay for what we want.

0:15:050:15:12

Something has been going on on the

railways over recent years,

0:15:120:15:16

successive governments have been

shifting who pays for the railways,

0:15:160:15:19

for the trains and stations and all

the rest of it - less money coming

0:15:190:15:23

from the taxpayer, more from

tickets, and that is why we heap

0:15:230:15:27

seeing these price rises. Anyway,

the good news is that all of these

0:15:270:15:31

rises come into effect on January

the 2nd. Richard, thank you.

0:15:310:15:37

There's encouraging news for people

with type 2 diabetes,

0:15:370:15:39

after doctors in Newcastle

and Glasgow carried out

0:15:390:15:40

a trial on 300 people.

0:15:400:15:42

They say they have reversed

type 2 diabetes in nearly half

0:15:420:15:45

of the patients who took part,

and they're calling it

0:15:450:15:47

a watershed moment.

0:15:470:15:48

The treatment involves

losing a lot of weight,

0:15:480:15:51

by being restricted to just 800

calories a day for up to five months

0:15:510:15:55

on an all-liquid diet.

0:15:550:15:59

The charity Diabetes UK

says the approach

0:15:590:16:01

could help millions of people.

0:16:010:16:05

Our health correspondent,

James Gallagher, has the details.

0:16:050:16:07

Isobel Murray thought she was facing

a lifetime of type 2 diabetes,

0:16:070:16:12

but she's lost more than four stone

on the trial and has now completely

0:16:120:16:15

changed her relationship with food.

0:16:150:16:16

Her disease is in remission.

0:16:160:16:22

It's freedom to live your life again

and know that you're not in that

0:16:220:16:27

cycle anymore and know that I can

control this, and I will never go

0:16:270:16:30

there again, never will I be taking

diabetic medication again,

0:16:300:16:33

I'll do whatever I have to do

to make sure that that

0:16:330:16:36

never happens again.

0:16:360:16:37

She spent 17 weeks drinking these.

0:16:370:16:40

They're nutritionally balanced

soups and shakes to help

0:16:400:16:42

trigger weight loss.

0:16:420:16:43

And that's it.

0:16:430:16:49

There's 200 calories

in a glass and you're allowed

0:16:490:16:51

four of them every day.

0:16:510:16:52

That's just sweet, really,

but that's your lot.

0:16:520:16:54

For up to five months.

0:16:540:16:57

The pancreas is critical

in type 2 diabetes.

0:16:570:17:02

If excess body fat is stored

around the organ,

0:17:020:17:05

then it reduces the production

of the hormone insulin.

0:17:050:17:08

That leads to levels of sugar

in the blood getting

0:17:080:17:11

dangerously out of control.

0:17:110:17:13

But losing weight makes the fat

cells disappear and the pancreas

0:17:130:17:16

work properly again.

0:17:160:17:19

Doctors say 46% of patients

on the trial

0:17:190:17:22

put their type 2 into remission.

0:17:220:17:26

We now have clear evidence that

weight loss of 10-15 kg is enough

0:17:260:17:29

to turn this disease around.

0:17:290:17:31

It's hugely exciting that we can do

that in routine practice,

0:17:310:17:34

with ordinary nurses,

ordinary dieticians, ordinary GPs,

0:17:340:17:36

and ordinary patients.

0:17:360:17:38

I don't have diabetes anymore,

I don't feel like a diabetic,

0:17:380:17:41

so I don't think about it anymore.

0:17:410:17:43

I've got my life back.

0:17:430:17:49

And Isobel says if she can do

it, then anyone can.

0:17:490:17:51

James Gallagher, BBC News.

0:17:510:17:53

Our top story this lunchtime...

0:17:530:17:56

The Prime Minister scrambles to find

a solution after failing to reach

0:17:560:17:59

a deal at the Brexit

talks in Brussels.

0:17:590:18:04

Coming up in sport...

0:18:040:18:10

I am live in Hull where this evening

we will find out which artist is

0:18:100:18:19

taking home the most prestigious

prize in contemporary art, that

0:18:190:18:24

Turner Prize.

0:18:240:18:26

It's the final round of matches

in the group stage of

0:18:260:18:29

the Champions League tonight.

0:18:290:18:30

Manchester United are

hoping to secure top spot

0:18:300:18:32

and qualification for the last 16.

0:18:320:18:34

It's been described

as a planetary crisis

0:18:390:18:43

and now environment ministers

meeting in Nairobi have agreed that

0:18:430:18:46

plastic waste needs to be stopped

from entering the world's oceans.

0:18:460:18:51

Scientists say they're shocked

to discover the effect plastics can

0:18:510:18:54

have on marine life,

endangering animals such

0:18:540:18:56

as turtles which can swallow

foreign items in the ocean.

0:18:560:19:06

The United Nations resolution,

which is set to be sealed tomorrow,

0:19:060:19:08

is not legally binding.

0:19:080:19:09

But ministers hope it

will set the course

0:19:090:19:11

for much tougher policies.

0:19:110:19:12

Our environment analyst,

Roger Harrabin, reports.

0:19:120:19:14

The plastic epidemic is everywhere.

0:19:140:19:17

Here volunteers are clearing up

a beach in Watamu, eastern Kenya.

0:19:170:19:22

The plastic comes from as far

as Indonesia and Japan.

0:19:220:19:28

It is harming animals like turtles

which ingest plastic pieces.

0:19:280:19:31

Half of the turtles brought

in for treatment for eating

0:19:310:19:34

plastics end up dead.

0:19:340:19:37

Here is one lucky turtle

being measured before

0:19:370:19:40

it is put back in the sea.

0:19:400:19:43

It was brought in

sick by a fisherman.

0:19:430:19:47

The man who runs the turtle hospital

says turtles offer an insight

0:19:470:19:50

into pollution of the entire ocean.

0:19:500:19:52

We focus on turtles

because they are endangered,

0:19:520:19:55

but also they are quite

a charismatic species.

0:19:550:19:57

People like turtles.

0:19:570:20:03

It is easier to get people

to like turtles than maybe a ray

0:20:030:20:06

or some kind of weird fish.

0:20:060:20:09

But also because they are

an excellent indicator species

0:20:090:20:11

of ecosystem health.

0:20:110:20:15

At the United Nations in Kenya,

these installations offer

0:20:150:20:18

an artist's insight into the impact

of plastics in the oceans.

0:20:180:20:21

UN environment ministers

are discussing what to do about it.

0:20:210:20:25

Some nations are banning

plastic bags completely.

0:20:250:20:29

Others are more cautious.

0:20:290:20:30

The UN's oceans chief

wants much faster action.

0:20:300:20:38

The plastic, the tremendous amount

of plastic that we use ends up

0:20:380:20:41

in the ocean and the ocean has been

seen as a trash dump where we dump

0:20:410:20:45

everything we don't need.

0:20:450:20:46

That plastic never goes away.

0:20:460:20:49

Mostly it floats on the surface.

0:20:490:20:53

It falls to the bottom.

0:20:530:20:54

And we urgently need

to do something about it.

0:20:540:20:57

Scientists recently discovered that

creatures at the very bottom

0:20:570:20:59

of the sea in the Mariana Trench had

ingested micro plastic fragments.

0:20:590:21:02

Many of them will have been

carried thousands of miles

0:21:020:21:04

from cities far inland.

0:21:040:21:07

In Nairobi, for instance,

they have banned plastic bags.

0:21:070:21:10

But look at this.

0:21:100:21:12

The UN grinds slowly.

0:21:120:21:15

While governments are figuring

out how to progress,

0:21:150:21:17

ordinary people have simply got

to stop doing this.

0:21:170:21:20

Roger Harrabin, BBC News, Nairobi.

0:21:200:21:26

Ferocious winds have whipped up

a fast-moving wildfire north

0:21:260:21:29

of Los Angeles, in California,

threatening thousands of homes

0:21:290:21:33

and knocking out power lines.

0:21:330:21:35

So far, authorities have

said one person has died

0:21:350:21:37

as a result of the blaze

and evacuation centres have been

0:21:370:21:40

opened in schools and fairgrounds.

0:21:400:21:41

Richard Galpin has the latest.

0:21:410:21:45

Fanned by winds gusting at up

to 70 miles an hour,

0:21:450:21:50

this latest fire in California has

been spreading fast

0:21:500:21:53

towards cities on the coast.

0:21:530:21:55

And as the fire advances,

thousands of families have been

0:21:550:21:59

ordered to leave their homes

as quickly as possible.

0:21:590:22:04

You must abide by these

evacuation notices.

0:22:040:22:08

We saw the disasters and the losses

that happened up north

0:22:080:22:13

in Sonoma and this is a fast,

very dangerous, moving fire.

0:22:130:22:17

Already one person has been

killed and there are fears

0:22:170:22:20

of significant destruction.

0:22:200:22:22

But some people still won't leave.

0:22:220:22:27

You can't panic, just kind

of go with the flow.

0:22:270:22:29

That's me.

0:22:290:22:34

We've been here almost 30

years and we've gone

0:22:340:22:36

through floods, fires, you know.

0:22:360:22:38

But it's the wind, you just don't

know where it is going to go.

0:22:380:22:41

My son is a firefighter and I'm not

going to wait around for someone

0:22:410:22:44

to have to come rescue me,

so I am out of here.

0:22:440:22:50

With the strong winds persisting,

the fire now covers

0:22:500:22:52

an area of 25,000 acres.

0:22:520:22:57

And it is continuing

to move steadily westwards,

0:22:570:22:59

towards the coastal cities

of Ventura and Santa Paula.

0:22:590:23:06

We have over 500 firefighting

personnel out on the lines.

0:23:060:23:09

The fire is pushing quickly

towards the city of Ventura.

0:23:090:23:12

We are making sure we are out ahead

of the fire, making sure we have

0:23:120:23:16

evacuations in advance of the fire.

0:23:160:23:18

That is a street going up in there.

0:23:180:23:20

Bad news.

0:23:200:23:23

And now the flames have

reached parts of Ventura,

0:23:230:23:27

with many homes and other

buildings on fire.

0:23:270:23:31

What was already California's most

devastating fire season on record...

0:23:310:23:37

..just got even worse.

0:23:370:23:40

Richard Galpin, BBC News.

0:23:400:23:46

England have been fighting back in

the second Ashes Test in Adelaide.

0:23:460:23:50

This morning, they bowled Australia

out for 138, with Jimmy Anderson

0:23:500:23:53

taking his first five-wicket

haul in Australia.

0:23:530:23:56

England finished on 176-4,

still needing 178

0:23:560:24:02

to win on what could be

a nail-biting final day.

0:24:020:24:04

Andy Swiss has been

watching the action.

0:24:040:24:11

It began a peaceful

Adelaide Tuesday that turned

0:24:110:24:13

into the tensest nailbiter.

0:24:130:24:15

England began with barely

a flicker of hope.

0:24:150:24:17

They needed early wickets and found

them, Jimmy Anderson inspired,

0:24:170:24:22

taking five in total

as his team-mates clung

0:24:220:24:26

onto their catches.

0:24:260:24:28

Australia's lead was growing

all the time though.

0:24:280:24:30

England kept chipping away,

if only they'd bowled like

0:24:300:24:33

this in the first innings.

0:24:330:24:34

By the time Australia

were all out for 138,

0:24:340:24:36

England's target was

still a massive one.

0:24:360:24:38

354, they would need

a record run chase.

0:24:380:24:47

As Mark Stoneman and Alastair Cook

eased them past the 50

0:24:470:24:49

mark, England dared to dream.

0:24:490:24:50

But then a reality

check, both went in

0:24:500:24:53

quick succession and

another soon followed.

0:24:530:24:58

James Vince wafting his

wicket away - not what

0:24:580:25:01

the occasion called for.

0:25:010:25:02

Under floodlights and the fiercest

pressure, Dawid Malan

0:25:020:25:04

and Joe Root hung in there.

0:25:040:25:05

Australia kept appealing,

England kept surviving, just.

0:25:050:25:07

It was pure sporting theatre.

0:25:070:25:10

Root reached a gutsy

half-century as the pair

0:25:100:25:12

rekindled England's hopes.

0:25:120:25:13

But ten minutes from

the close, a final twist.

0:25:130:25:16

Dawid Malan gone.

0:25:160:25:17

Australia are still

favourites, but England

0:25:170:25:19

are 178 runs from

something very special.

0:25:190:25:26

This has been some fight

back from England.

0:25:260:25:31

Barely 24 hours

ago, they looked beaten,

0:25:310:25:33

the Ashes all but gone.

0:25:330:25:38

And yet they still have a chance

of a remarkable win.

0:25:380:25:41

To be honest, we are delighted to be

in this position, to have any chance

0:25:410:25:44

of winning the game,

which we didn't think we would have

0:25:440:25:47

after the first couple of days.

0:25:470:25:48

It's good for us.

0:25:480:25:53

Obviously, there's a huge amount

of work left in this game if we

0:25:530:25:56

have got any chance of winning it.

0:25:560:26:05

And so an enthralling

finale awakes from the

0:26:050:26:07

brink of defeat, a chance of one

of cricket's greatest victories.

0:26:070:26:10

The International Olympic Committee

will announce this evening

0:26:100:26:12

whether it will allow Russian

athletes to compete in next year's

0:26:120:26:15

Winter Olympics in South Korea.

0:26:150:26:17

An independent report

by the World Anti-Doping Authority

0:26:170:26:21

in 2015 suggested senior figures

in Russia's sports ministry were

0:26:210:26:24

complicit in doping by athletes.

0:26:240:26:28

A Kremlin spokesman said Russia

will defend its athletes

0:26:280:26:30

against the allegations.

0:26:300:26:31

Alex Capstick is in

Lausanne, in Switzerland.

0:26:310:26:39

That decision, what is it expected

to be?

Russia's fate will be known

0:26:390:26:46

in next few hours. The crucial

session is just underweight and it

0:26:460:26:50

could end with a ban on one of the

Olympic heavyweights over massive

0:26:500:26:57

doping violations. Things got

serious when a report by Richard

0:26:570:27:02

McLaren was published accusing

Russia of institutionalised doping,

0:27:020:27:05

he said it affected 1000 athletes in

more than 30 different sports.

0:27:050:27:10

Russia has denied there was any

state-sponsored doping but since the

0:27:100:27:17

report, a separate IOC investigation

has corroborated most of Richard

0:27:170:27:20

McLaren's findings and another

inquiry is examining whether it was

0:27:200:27:24

a state led conspiracy. A Russian

delegation is in town to put their

0:27:240:27:28

side of the story and they will

argue a blanket ban is unfair on

0:27:280:27:32

clean athletes. This is being seen

as a test of the IOC's credibility,

0:27:320:27:38

its president, Thomas Bach, has been

accused of being reluctant to punish

0:27:380:27:43

such a powerful and influential

member of the Olympic movement, but

0:27:430:27:47

amid mounting evidence, the signs

are his attitude has hardened

0:27:470:27:50

against Russia. By how far, that

will become clear later today.

Thank

0:27:500:27:56

you.

0:27:560:27:59

It's one of visual art's most

prestigious awards -

0:27:590:28:01

the winner of the Turner Prize

will be announced

0:28:010:28:03

this evening in Hull.

0:28:030:28:05

Previous winners have

included Damien Hurst,

0:28:050:28:06

Grayson Perry and Steve McQueen.

0:28:060:28:10

The prize will be presented

in a ceremony just before 10pm,

0:28:100:28:12

in Hull, marking the end of its time

as UK

0:28:120:28:15

City of Culture 2017.

0:28:150:28:16

The shortlist for the art

award includes two

0:28:160:28:20

artists who are both over 50 -

British painter Hurvin Anderson,

0:28:200:28:22

and Lubaina Himid,

who was born in Zanzibar.

0:28:220:28:27

They will be competing

against German artist Andrea Buttner

0:28:270:28:31

and Palestinian-English artist

Rosalind Nashashibi.

0:28:310:28:34

More than 90,000 people have visited

the Turner Prize exhibition in Hull

0:28:340:28:38

and tonight's award will be

presented by the musician,

0:28:380:28:40

DJ and actor, Goldie.

0:28:400:28:47

Jane Hill is in Hull for us. Welcome

to the Ferens Gallery hosting the

0:28:470:28:56

Turner Prize. We are in the room

exhibiting the work of Lubaina

0:28:560:29:00

Himid, the bookies favourite. A few

more hours to wait whether their

0:29:000:29:05

assessment is correct. Let us talk

to Martin Greene, the director of

0:29:050:29:12

Hull 2017. 90,000 people have

already come together Ferens Gallery

0:29:120:29:16

to see the exhibits. A few more

weeks to run. What do you put the

0:29:160:29:20

fantastic attendance down to?

It

shows the appetite for contemporary

0:29:200:29:24

Art in the UK and by staging it

here, we have a whole new audience

0:29:240:29:28

to the work of the extraordinary

four artists.

Remarkable year, a lot

0:29:280:29:35

going on in the city, only a few

weeks to go. Do you and your team

0:29:350:29:40

have to reflect now on how you take

the successes, the enthusiasms you

0:29:400:29:45

have seen this year, and take it

into 2018 and beyond?

What happens

0:29:450:29:50

next is arguably more important. We

have a 20 year legacy plan, a

0:29:500:29:55

programme for next year, new

buildings, we continue. If you did

0:29:550:29:58

not visit the city this year, come

next year.

Do you feel across all

0:29:580:30:03

artistic disciplines that you have

genuinely engaged local people, that

0:30:030:30:09

this has really benefited the city?

We had a figure at the beginning of

0:30:090:30:13

the year that nine out of ten people

in the city would visit at least one

0:30:130:30:18

cultural event, we have seen

phenomenal audiences at everything

0:30:180:30:20

we have done across the city. I am

really proud of what the city has

0:30:200:30:26

achieved.

Thank you very much,

Martin Greene, director of Hull

0:30:260:30:33

the Turner Prize. There will be a

moment, making its way north and

0:30:550:30:59

east towards the UK through the

course of Wednesday night and into

0:30:590:31:02

Thursday. When it does arrive, it

will bring gusts potentially of more

0:31:020:31:09

than 80 mph, strongest in the north

of Scotland, where we are likely to

0:31:090:31:13

see travel disruption. Keep tuned to

the forecast. Back to the here and

0:31:130:31:19

now, pretty quiet. A cloudy day.

Still mild with temperatures around

0:31:190:31:25

8-10dC. Rain in the north-west of

Scotland which will be persistent at

0:31:250:31:29

times. Elsewhere, the odd spot of

Bristol on coasts and hills in the

0:31:290:31:34

north and west. -- the odd spot of

Brazil. Overnight temperatures not

0:31:340:31:40

too dissimilar to the daytime highs.

Through the day tomorrow, a similar

0:31:400:31:45

day across England and Wales to

today. Still quite cloudy, a few

0:31:450:31:50

more bright intervals, Scotland and

Northern Ireland, the wind picking

0:31:500:31:57

up with rain. Mild and breezy

tomorrow. Later tomorrow, the wins

0:31:570:32:02

will really start to strengthen,

gales on exposed Irish Sea coasts

0:32:020:32:06

and parts of Scotland. Heavy bursts

of rain also crossing south-east

0:32:060:32:14

across the country. From the word go

on Thursday, a windy day wherever

0:32:140:32:18

you are and as the winds strengthen,

we could see gusts reaching 80 miles

0:32:180:32:24

per across Scotland. Enough to cause

significant disruption with Storm

0:32:240:32:31

Caroline bringing rain east and the

wins will be changing direction. As

0:32:310:32:35

the storm clears to the north-east,

we are left with a northerly air

0:32:350:32:40

flow, isobars stretching up to the

Arctic. Colder conditions piling in

0:32:400:32:45

behind the storm, Calder air mass

heading into was the end of the

0:32:450:32:49

week. Friday, different feel to the

weather, sunny spells and wintry

0:32:490:32:54

showers, there could be snow across

Scotland, Wales, south-west of

0:32:540:32:58

England. Some sunshine elsewhere. It

will feel cold. With the wind chill,

0:32:580:33:03

it will feel more like around -3 for

many. Wintry end to the week. Lots

0:33:030:33:11

going on in the weather. From

midweek, Storm Caroline bringing wet

0:33:110:33:17

and windy weather. Then the return

to something colder towards the end

0:33:170:33:20

of the week.
