Boris Johnson adds his brand of diplomacy to the Brexit debate

:00:00.:00:09.

as EU leaders spell out the problems ahead.

:00:10.:00:15.

The Foreign Secretary is hoping for new ties with India -

:00:16.:00:22.

And he is accused of upsetting old friends like France.

:00:23.:00:25.

If Mr Hollande wants to administer punishment beatings to anybody

:00:26.:00:28.

who chooses to escape rather in the manner of some sort

:00:29.:00:31.

of World War II movie, then I don't think that is the way forward.

:00:32.:00:37.

At the EU Parliament, first formal reactions

:00:38.:00:40.

and they're spelling out the challenges ahead.

:00:41.:00:47.

We want a fair deal for the United Kingdom,

:00:48.:00:52.

but that deal necessarily needs to be inferior to membership.

:00:53.:00:56.

We'll be asking what this means for Brexit negotiations.

:00:57.:00:59.

He was told there was no space for him on a bus -

:01:00.:01:05.

now this disabled campaigner wins at the Supreme Court.

:01:06.:01:10.

We are going to evacuate everyone back home tonight.

:01:11.:01:13.

Their holiday is over - thousands of British tourists flown

:01:14.:01:18.

back from The Gambia after warnings of unrest.

:01:19.:01:20.

Coming up in Sportsday later in the BBC News, tributes to the

:01:21.:01:38.

pioneering Baroness Rachael Heyhoe Flint.

:01:39.:01:40.

The former England captain who helped transform

:01:41.:01:42.

women's cricket has died at the age of 77.

:01:43.:01:58.

Good evening and welcome to the BBC news at Six.

:01:59.:02:02.

EU leaders meeting in Strasbourg have been

:02:03.:02:05.

giving their first formal reaction to Theresa May's Brexit speech.

:02:06.:02:08.

The Prime Minister of Malta, which holds the EU presidency,

:02:09.:02:12.

said any deal had to be inferior to the relationship Britain

:02:13.:02:15.

With both British and EU politicians trying not to antagonise each other

:02:16.:02:20.

Boris Johnson has been blamed for doing the opposite.

:02:21.:02:25.

He's been accused of inappropriate language when he appeared to compare

:02:26.:02:29.

France's President Hollande to a World War II guard

:02:30.:02:31.

Our political editor Laura Kuennsberg explains.

:02:32.:02:41.

Watch out, Foreign Secretary more light. It is his job to bring

:02:42.:02:49.

friends and influence around the world. On tour in India today. The

:02:50.:02:55.

delicate process of leaving the EU begins, rather in delicate words

:02:56.:03:01.

about our old friends and foes, the French. Mr Hollande wants to

:03:02.:03:07.

administer punishment beatings to anybody who chooses to escape rather

:03:08.:03:12.

in the manner of some World War II movie, I don't think that is the way

:03:13.:03:16.

forward. I think it is not in the interests of our friends and our

:03:17.:03:22.

partners. From thousands of miles away he was slammed as crass. Not

:03:23.:03:29.

what you would expect from a Foreign Minister a diplomat told me. Awkward

:03:30.:03:34.

when back home the Prime Minister urges everyone to play nice. The

:03:35.:03:37.

point made was reasonable but the language has to be careful when

:03:38.:03:40.

dealing with colleagues and friends. Boris comes up with extraordinary

:03:41.:03:45.

phrases of which we should all be ashamed. His team said he was just

:03:46.:03:49.

making the point it makes no sense for the rest of the EU to treat

:03:50.:03:54.

Britain harshly but only yesterday Theresa May publicly reminded

:03:55.:03:58.

ministers at home of the need the discipline and with a difficult deal

:03:59.:04:02.

ahead, Britain needs all the friends it has. Language matters, but it is

:04:03.:04:08.

the words and attitudes of European leaders that will be vital.

:04:09.:04:12.

Yesterday the Prime Minister appealed to EU counterparts to

:04:13.:04:16.

behave as good friends, even as we leave. The arch European Jean-Claude

:04:17.:04:21.

Juncker, who leads the commission that will manage the deal. We are

:04:22.:04:28.

not in a hostile mood. We want a fair deal for Britain but a fair

:04:29.:04:32.

deal means a fair deal for the EU. Leaders are in no mood to let

:04:33.:04:36.

Britain divide and conquer, their goal is sticking together. We have a

:04:37.:04:43.

clearer idea of what Britain wants, Angela Merkel said, the most

:04:44.:04:47.

important thing is Europe is not divided. In public and private, this

:04:48.:04:52.

is the reality. Whatever the UK asks for, the rest of the EU will not do

:04:53.:04:59.

a deal when the terms are trade are as cushy outside as in. We want a

:05:00.:05:03.

fair deal for the United Kingdom, but that deal necessarily needs to

:05:04.:05:12.

be inferior to membership. Are you playing hardball? She may smile, her

:05:13.:05:17.

speech yesterday please most of her party, but Theresa May is under

:05:18.:05:21.

attack for not giving MPs enough of a save. It is not so much the iron

:05:22.:05:28.

Lady as the irony lady. I have a plan. He does not have a clue. Next

:05:29.:05:33.

Tuesday it is over to the courts, who could force the government to

:05:34.:05:38.

give detail, more detailed to Parliament, before the technical

:05:39.:05:42.

process of extricating ourselves from the EU begins. In these

:05:43.:05:46.

negotiations it will not always seen that ministers are in charge.

:05:47.:05:48.

Our Europe correspondent Damian Grammaticas is in Strasbourg.

:05:49.:05:55.

I guess EU leaders have had time to digests Mrs May's speech and come up

:05:56.:06:03.

for a formal reaction. What did you make of their language? It is

:06:04.:06:08.

interesting, the comments by Boris Johnson, although some here see them

:06:09.:06:15.

as at best insensitive and at worst offensive, have not made a big

:06:16.:06:19.

impact because here the view is there are serious issues at stake

:06:20.:06:23.

and the important thing to be remembered is what they are saying

:06:24.:06:29.

is the UK needs to understand it is trying to achieve unprecedented

:06:30.:06:32.

things. Theresa May wants a free-trade deal and an unprecedented

:06:33.:06:38.

amount of time within two years and for that she needs goodwill on

:06:39.:06:42.

behalf of the negotiating partners here. What's the Maltese Prime

:06:43.:06:46.

Minister who will chair the EU countries said was that Theresa May

:06:47.:06:53.

had made a political decision to prioritise stopping the free

:06:54.:06:57.

movement of people, and the UK leaving the single market would not

:06:58.:07:03.

achieve as good a deal outside. Very clear on that. Angela Merkel clear,

:07:04.:07:09.

saying outside the EU, the UK could not cherry pick because from the EU

:07:10.:07:15.

perspective, Eddie deal would not offer benefits that would make any

:07:16.:07:19.

other country want also to follow the same path outside the EU and

:07:20.:07:23.

from the EU point of view that is what we do greatest harm to their

:07:24.:07:25.

unity. Two banks - HSBC and UBS -

:07:26.:07:27.

have confirmed they will transfer jobs from London to Europe,

:07:28.:07:30.

after the Prime Minister said Brexit would mean Britain would leave

:07:31.:07:34.

the European single market. Our business editor Simon Jack

:07:35.:07:36.

is at the World Economic Simon, HSBC have talked about this

:07:37.:07:52.

before, they were not bluffing? No, it seems they were not and have been

:07:53.:07:56.

saying for months if we left the single market they would move about

:07:57.:08:02.

1000 high-paid bankers to Paris and we also learned today more about how

:08:03.:08:08.

much business they will take. They will take 20% of HSBC's European

:08:09.:08:12.

banking revenue. They would not split it out but it is in the

:08:13.:08:17.

hundreds of millions, potentially billions of revenue, which is not

:08:18.:08:22.

the same thing as profit but a big chunk. UBS confirmed on plans they

:08:23.:08:29.

could move up to 1000 bankers, most likely to Frankfurt. This will be a

:08:30.:08:34.

hit to the Exchequer. There will be few violins for bankers leaving but

:08:35.:08:38.

these are among the highest-paid people in the country making

:08:39.:08:41.

hundreds of thousand pounds each. The Exchequer will see a hit, there

:08:42.:08:49.

will be erosion of London's place in the global marketplace for financial

:08:50.:08:54.

services. It seems clear that contingency plans, since the speech,

:08:55.:08:56.

has become a reality. It's being hailed as a victory

:08:57.:08:59.

for disabled people. Doug Paulley, who uses a

:09:00.:09:01.

wheelchair, took legal action because he couldn't board a bus

:09:02.:09:04.

in Leeds, when a mother with a pushchair refused

:09:05.:09:07.

to make way for him. Today judges at the Supreme Court

:09:08.:09:11.

ruled that the bus company's policy of requesting but not requiring

:09:12.:09:14.

other passengers to move Our disability affairs

:09:15.:09:16.

correspondent Nikki Fox reports. It has taken almost five years of

:09:17.:09:32.

legal battles to get to this point. How are you feeling? Elated.

:09:33.:09:40.

Finally, Doug Paulley had his day in the highest court in the country.

:09:41.:09:46.

All seven judges agreed the bus company policy of requesting and not

:09:47.:09:51.

requiring a person to vacate the wheelchair space was unlawful. But

:09:52.:09:56.

it is not clear-cut because the judgment does not insist some will

:09:57.:10:00.

move from the space. I am really pleased with the result. I am aware

:10:01.:10:05.

some will be pleased. It has not gone as far as some would like or it

:10:06.:10:15.

has gone to far. This is about disabled people'srights, access, to

:10:16.:10:18.

travel on the bus and hopefully today is a step in the right

:10:19.:10:23.

direction. It began in 2012 when Doug was unable to catch a bus

:10:24.:10:26.

because the space the wheelchairs was occupied by a mother and

:10:27.:10:30.

pushchair. She refused to move which meant dot-macro could not get on.

:10:31.:10:35.

First Group admit that following the verdict they might have to amend

:10:36.:10:39.

training to staff but are pleased drivers will not have to force

:10:40.:10:43.

people off the bus. We welcome the fact the court confirmed a driver is

:10:44.:10:48.

not required to remove a passenger from a boss if they refuse to move

:10:49.:10:51.

from the space, which is important for drivers. The impact of the

:10:52.:10:56.

judgment will have wider implications. Further than just

:10:57.:11:02.

buses. Any service provider or company that has a dedicated space

:11:03.:11:07.

for disabled people, which could be a supermarket disabled bay, access a

:11:08.:11:10.

bald toilet in a restaurant, they will have to make sure wheelchair

:11:11.:11:16.

users get priority. Not all wheelchair users agree. I will not

:11:17.:11:20.

go on the bus and take the woman with the pram. I am disabled, but I

:11:21.:11:27.

am still a man and this just feels not right. What about mothers with

:11:28.:11:33.

babies? It is not as simple as wheelchairs versus pushchairs. It is

:11:34.:11:37.

better to remain a grey area for people to use common sense. Today's

:11:38.:11:42.

ruling paves the way for a closer look at legislation when it comes to

:11:43.:11:47.

prioritising Access for wheelchair users.

:11:48.:11:48.

Unemployment has fallen to its lowest level

:11:49.:11:50.

The number of people out of work fell between last September

:11:51.:11:54.

and November and now stands at 1.6 million.

:11:55.:11:57.

Average earnings were up by 2.7% compared with a year earlier.

:11:58.:12:06.

Thousands of British holidaymakers enjoying some winter sun

:12:07.:12:08.

in The Gambia have been told to cut short their holiday.

:12:09.:12:16.

They are being flown home after a state

:12:17.:12:18.

The Foreign Office is advising people to avoid all but essential

:12:19.:12:21.

There's been political tension in the country ever

:12:22.:12:25.

since the president refused to accept that he lost

:12:26.:12:27.

It's basically that we are going to evacuate everyone back home today.

:12:28.:12:37.

About half the holiday-makers in The Gambia are British.

:12:38.:12:41.

Most are following Foreign Office advice to leave,

:12:42.:12:43.

Asking us to leave is unnecessary, I think, at the moment.

:12:44.:12:49.

But I understand that we need to do it.

:12:50.:12:53.

To me, it feels stupid, because this will all be over

:12:54.:12:56.

But it's not just foreigners fleeing the capital, Banjul.

:12:57.:13:04.

Many Gambians fear possible violence, as the President

:13:05.:13:06.

tries to cling to power, defying his election

:13:07.:13:08.

President Yahya Jammeh at first conceded that he lost,

:13:09.:13:16.

22 years after seizing power, and facing mounting

:13:17.:13:19.

accusations of torturing and murdering opponents.

:13:20.:13:23.

But then he changed his mind, and refused to step down.

:13:24.:13:27.

The man who won, Adama Barrow, fled to neighbouring Senegal.

:13:28.:13:31.

He insists he will be sworn in as President tomorrow,

:13:32.:13:34.

and other West African states, including Nigeria,

:13:35.:13:38.

are preparing their forces to intervene on his behalf.

:13:39.:13:41.

The Foreign Office stresses that one of its first

:13:42.:13:43.

duties is the protection of Britons overseas.

:13:44.:13:49.

So ministers felt they had no choice but to urge those

:13:50.:13:52.

The Americans took a similar decision, more than a week ago.

:13:53.:13:55.

Ministers feel caution has to be the watchword.

:13:56.:13:59.

We have been putting a contingency plan together,

:14:00.:14:03.

should the advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office change.

:14:04.:14:05.

And of course, that happened last night.

:14:06.:14:07.

And the advice, to stop all but essential travel,

:14:08.:14:12.

effectively translates into, you shouldn't go unless you have to,

:14:13.:14:15.

and if you are out there, you really ought to come home.

:14:16.:14:18.

So now, charter aircraft are flying into The Gambia

:14:19.:14:20.

empty, flying out full, as the tourist exodus accelerates.

:14:21.:14:25.

Tonight, Senegal is seeking UN backing for West African

:14:26.:14:28.

Its troops are already massing on the border.

:14:29.:14:30.

EU leaders spell out challenges ahead for Brexit,

:14:31.:14:42.

while Boris Johnson's been accused of inappropriate language.

:14:43.:14:47.

British tennis on a roll, Dan Evans beats the seventh

:14:48.:14:52.

seed to make the third round of the Australian Open.

:14:53.:15:00.

Coming up live on Sportsday, Plymouth Argyle tried to cause a big

:15:01.:15:10.

upset against Liverpool in their FA Cup third-round replay.

:15:11.:15:17.

Nasa scientists say 2016 was the hottest year since records

:15:18.:15:21.

Average global temperatures edged ahead of 2015,

:15:22.:15:25.

and are now 1.1 degrees higher than pre-industrial levels.

:15:26.:15:29.

In fact, it is the third consecutive year that the record has

:15:30.:15:32.

Scientists believe that the El Nino weather phenomenon played a role,

:15:33.:15:37.

but increasing levels of greenhouse gases were the main factor

:15:38.:15:41.

Our science correspondent Rebecca Morelle has more.

:15:42.:15:47.

Our planet is warming, fast, and the latest data suggests that

:15:48.:15:50.

This winter, parts of the Arctic have had a heatwave,

:15:51.:15:57.

temperatures were above freezing when they should

:15:58.:15:59.

While Australia's Great Barrier Reef was transformed to this.

:16:00.:16:08.

Vast swathes of coral were killed off, as the waters warmed.

:16:09.:16:12.

2015 was the warmest year on record up until now,

:16:13.:16:16.

It's beaten it by about 0.1, 0.12 degrees Celsius.

:16:17.:16:22.

Which doesn't seem like a lot, but in terms of the yearly

:16:23.:16:25.

Part of this rise was caused by an El Nino event,

:16:26.:16:30.

a warm ocean current that disrupts the world's weather.

:16:31.:16:33.

But scientists say greenhouse gases were the main driver.

:16:34.:16:36.

This shows how global temperatures have increased

:16:37.:16:39.

The bigger the circle, the hotter the year.

:16:40.:16:45.

And the latest data, collected by Nasa and meteorological

:16:46.:16:48.

agencies around the world, suggest 2016 is the third year

:16:49.:16:51.

The global temperature is edging ever closer

:16:52.:16:58.

Scientists say a rise of two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels

:16:59.:17:05.

could lead to dangerous impacts around the world.

:17:06.:17:09.

So a lower limit of 1.5 Celsius was set by the Paris climate

:17:10.:17:13.

agreement, a global deal that came into force last year.

:17:14.:17:18.

But with carbon dioxide at record levels, scientists say this

:17:19.:17:22.

is a temperature threshold we are on course to surpass.

:17:23.:17:28.

To tackle global warming, the world is being urged

:17:29.:17:31.

to move away from fossil fuels, like coal.

:17:32.:17:34.

But in the US, Donald Trump has said he wants to revive the industry,

:17:35.:17:38.

and has threatened to pull America out of the Paris climate agreement.

:17:39.:17:42.

The woman who brokered the deal is concerned.

:17:43.:17:46.

If the US chooses to exit the road and the path that has been pursued

:17:47.:17:50.

by every other country in the world, it is only going to damage

:17:51.:17:53.

itself, because it will become less competitive.

:17:54.:17:58.

We are moving toward a de-carbonised society.

:17:59.:18:02.

All eyes will now be on this year's data.

:18:03.:18:04.

Already, scientists forecast that 2017 won't be as warm,

:18:05.:18:06.

But they say longer term, unless action is taken,

:18:07.:18:14.

British sprinters, James Ellington and Nigel Levine, have been involved

:18:15.:18:23.

British Athletics said the pair were injured in the crash

:18:24.:18:30.

yesterday in Tenerife but are "conscious and stable".

:18:31.:18:38.

It is believed they have both broken their pelvis. James Ellington has

:18:39.:18:44.

written on his Facebook page that they are lucky to be alive.

:18:45.:18:48.

Police say a 16-year-old girl found on a path, in Rotherham,

:18:49.:18:50.

The body of Leonne Weeks was found on Monday.

:18:51.:18:54.

Her family said they were "devastated" at the loss

:18:55.:18:56.

of their "beautiful daughter and sister".

:18:57.:18:57.

An 18-year-old man is being questioned over her death,

:18:58.:19:00.

and a 26-year-old woman is being held on suspicion

:19:01.:19:02.

Southern Rail services will run a full timetable from next Tuesday

:19:03.:19:11.

after the driver's union, Aslef, called off a planned

:19:12.:19:14.

Fresh negotiations in the long-running dispute over

:19:15.:19:16.

the role of guards on trains are due to take place tomorrow.

:19:17.:19:23.

This Friday, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President

:19:24.:19:26.

But his election campaign was one of the most divisive of recent times

:19:27.:19:31.

and thousands are planning to protest against his presidency.

:19:32.:19:35.

Opposition is particularly strong in California where his plans

:19:36.:19:37.

to deport immigrants and build a wall on the Mexico border,

:19:38.:19:40.

From Los Angeles, James Cook sent this report.

:19:41.:19:52.

What do we think of the beautiful sunshine for a rally today!

:19:53.:19:55.

In California the resistance is heating up.

:19:56.:19:58.

As Donald Trump takes office, fear among the state's 10 million

:19:59.:20:00.

From the streets all the way up to the governor,

:20:01.:20:06.

Isabelle Medina has lived in the US illegally for 20 years.

:20:07.:20:16.

For her and millions like her, Mr Trump's election could mean

:20:17.:20:19.

It was shocking, and at that very moment it was scary.

:20:20.:20:28.

Because our people were thinking, oh, my God, what is going

:20:29.:20:31.

As his campaign wore on, the focus shifted from mass deportations

:20:32.:20:43.

My son Ronald de Silva was murdered April 27, 2002,

:20:44.:20:51.

My husband was shot by an illegal alien.

:20:52.:20:55.

He was murdered by an illegal in 2010.

:20:56.:20:59.

Prioritising the deportation of criminals was also

:21:00.:21:01.

But here on the border there could be a big change.

:21:02.:21:08.

An even bigger wall, paid for, says Mr Trump -

:21:09.:21:10.

A nation built on immigration no longer feels like a refuge

:21:11.:21:15.

Mr Trump's election has thrown up a fundamental question.

:21:16.:21:21.

For many of the new President's supporters, the answer

:21:22.:21:28.

is rooted in history, in a sense of white,

:21:29.:21:30.

Here in Los Angeles, it's a very different story.

:21:31.:21:39.

Deportados, how do we translate that to English?

:21:40.:21:42.

At this museum, students are learning about the founding

:21:43.:21:47.

of LA by Mexicans, Africans and native Americans,

:21:48.:21:49.

It helps explain why California rejects Mr Trump so fiercely.

:21:50.:21:59.

It is almost a situation back to the 1860s with the southern

:22:00.:22:02.

states versus the northern states over the issue of slavery.

:22:03.:22:06.

You know, we're not at that point yet, but California looks

:22:07.:22:09.

like we will be leading the charge against whatever kind of actions

:22:10.:22:14.

Many state agencies here already refuse to help

:22:15.:22:20.

A sour relationship may yet collapse completely as both sides prepare

:22:21.:22:27.

The former England women's cricket captain Rachael

:22:28.:22:37.

She played for England 45 times and helped win

:22:38.:22:44.

She was one of the MCC's first women members, and was made

Britain's Dan Evans has pulled off the best win of his tennis career

:22:50.:23:00.

He knocked out the number seven seed Marin Cilic.

:23:01.:23:03.

Less of a surprise was Andy Murray's easy victory over

:23:04.:23:05.

Russia's Andrey Rublev which takes him through

:23:06.:23:07.

Dan Evans went shopping on Sunday, to buy kit for the Australian Open.

:23:08.:23:17.

Dropped by his sponsor last year, he's come back from the brink

:23:18.:23:20.

of quitting tennis, to beat two of the world's top ten players

:23:21.:23:23.

Today's big scalp, former US Open winner Marin Cilic,

:23:24.:23:29.

who had looked too much for Evans in the first set, as

:23:30.:23:32.

But as the shadows lengthened, Evans came to life, breaking

:23:33.:23:38.

the Cilic serve to take the second set.

:23:39.:23:42.

With belief blossoming in the darkness, he

:23:43.:23:44.

The fourth turned into a battle, Evans saved eight break points,

:23:45.:23:53.

He had to serve to stay in the match, but Evans took his chance.

:23:54.:24:03.

And, what to do after beating the world number seven?

:24:04.:24:06.

Get straight on the phone, there is big news to share.

:24:07.:24:09.

Surely, the biggest win of his career.

:24:10.:24:11.

I had to fight quite hard to get through.

:24:12.:24:14.

It was definitely the situation, and the ranking was

:24:15.:24:16.

With Evans through, Andy Murray was just getting started.

:24:17.:24:22.

He beat the Russian teenager Andrey Rublev in straight sets.

:24:23.:24:25.

But the match wasn't without its drama.

:24:26.:24:27.

For a while, it looked like the world number

:24:28.:24:30.

While Murray has an appointment with an ice pack, Dan Evans

:24:31.:24:35.

is unlikely to be feeling any of his aches and pains.

:24:36.:24:39.

Not a bad day's work, for a player the papers once

:24:40.:24:42.

described as "the most wasted talent in British tennis."

:24:43.:24:46.

Time for a look at the weather, here's Helen Willetts.

:24:47.:24:59.

Tell us this deep chill is coming to an end! That deep chill depends on

:25:00.:25:07.

where you are, it is a really slow-moving weather picture. But

:25:08.:25:10.

what a difference in some parts of the country. It depends on the cloud

:25:11.:25:13.

weather you have it or weather you don't. Where we had the sunshine

:25:14.:25:17.

today in the south is where we had the hard frost. Further north, it

:25:18.:25:23.

was far milder. And, it's pretty much the story for the next couple

:25:24.:25:28.

of nights. We've still got a high pressure, the static weather across

:25:29.:25:31.

the country. And this week weather front which is providing the cloud.

:25:32.:25:36.

It's not in the south, in the south we've got that continental air. For

:25:37.:25:41.

most of us, the cloud acts like a blanket, stopping the temperatures

:25:42.:25:45.

from falling. As we saw this morning, this wonderful Weather

:25:46.:25:51.

Watcher shot from West Berkshire, similar themes across the southern

:25:52.:25:55.

half of the country again tomorrow morning are likely. With the weather

:25:56.:25:58.

front close by, there's more moisture. The potential is there,

:25:59.:26:03.

with breaks in the cloud, the fog to form. Ice and frost across the South

:26:04.:26:08.

with potentially a bit of fog in East Anglia and possibly parts of

:26:09.:26:12.

Wales. It is blanket cloud cover, sitting on the hills, quite a murky

:26:13.:26:17.

morning, really. The cloud across Northern Ireland and the majority of

:26:18.:26:20.

Scotland, some rain towards the north. The north-east of Scotland

:26:21.:26:24.

might do quite well with the frost and fog. How still. Perfect

:26:25.:26:29.

reflection on the canal, there. Pretty much the same through the

:26:30.:26:34.

rest of the day, we might pick up a bit more cloud across East Anglia

:26:35.:26:39.

compared with today. Perhaps not as sunny here. The sunshine prevalent

:26:40.:26:44.

perhaps across parts of the Bristol Channel. Again, east of the

:26:45.:26:49.

Grampians, perhaps east of the Pennines. Temperature is not much

:26:50.:26:54.

higher than recently. Friday, subtle changes again, the cloud could move

:26:55.:26:58.

a bit further south again. The frost and the sunshine best in the south.

:26:59.:27:02.

Pretty chilly with some breaks elsewhere. Not guaranteed, because

:27:03.:27:07.

that weather front is with us. It's very usable, out and about weather.

:27:08.:27:11.

If you have the weekend off, lots of dry weather but hopefully more

:27:12.:27:15.

sunshine than we are seeing at the moment. Do bear in mind it's

:27:16.:27:17.

January, it'll be chilly. EU leaders spell out the challenges

:27:18.:27:30.

of Brexit while Boris Johnson has been accused of inappropriate

:27:31.:27:31.

language. That's all from the BBC News at Six,

:27:32.:27:33.

so it's goodbye from me, and on BBC One, we now join

:27:34.:27:36.

the BBC's news teams where you are.
