The right to find out what companies know

:00:08.:00:11.

Under new laws you'll be able to ask for personal data to be erased

:00:12.:00:17.

It will give more control and more power to consumers and citizens

:00:18.:00:24.

to have a say on how their personal data is being used.

:00:25.:00:32.

We'll be asking what it means for the companies involved.

:01:10.:01:11.

There are more British medal hopes on the fourth day of these

championships including Laura Muir in the 1500 metres final.

:01:15.:01:38.

Good evening and welcome to the BBC News at Six.

:01:39.:01:41.

A new law for the digital age - that's our top story tonight.

:01:42.:01:45.

We're all spending more time online - and whether it's for business

:01:46.:01:48.

or pleasure it means companies are collecting a vast amount

:01:49.:01:50.

of information about us, some of it quite personal.

:01:51.:01:57.

Now the government is proposing legislation that will give us

:01:58.:01:59.

a right to see what companies know about us and - in some cases -

:02:00.:02:03.

As our technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones reports,

:02:04.:02:06.

the new law would bring the UK in line with the rest of the EU.

:02:07.:02:16.

Your data, a valuable resource flowing around the world giving

:02:17.:02:21.

companies and governments all kinds of intimate details about how you

:02:22.:02:25.

live your life. Now a new law is supposed to give us all more

:02:26.:02:32.

control. The law is an opportunity to keep up with the changing

:02:33.:02:36.

technology. Companies will have more accountability and consumers will

:02:37.:02:40.

have more control. The new law includes a right to be forgotten,

:02:41.:02:44.

making it easier to find out what data companies hold on you and get

:02:45.:02:48.

it a race. There will be an end to tick boxes on websites which often

:02:49.:02:53.

see consumers handing over data by default and the data watchdog will

:02:54.:02:57.

be able to find up to ?70 million for companies, or 4% of the global

:02:58.:03:00.

turnover. The new law is almost entirely based on

:03:01.:03:16.

a major new European data protection regulation that comes in next May.

:03:17.:03:19.

It is designed to tackle the power of the giant firms which draw our

:03:20.:03:21.

information. We are now leaving a data trail wherever we go, turn on

:03:22.:03:24.

your mobile phone and you could be uploading your exercise details or

:03:25.:03:26.

even your dating preferences. Get on public transport with a travel card

:03:27.:03:29.

and there will be a log of every journey that you make. And pay with

:03:30.:03:34.

a card in a shop or online and even more information about what you like

:03:35.:03:38.

and how you live will end up in the hands of big companies. It is social

:03:39.:03:43.

networks which now hold much of our most sensitive data. In future it

:03:44.:03:47.

should be easier to wipe away things we would rather forget. Though

:03:48.:03:51.

exactly how much power the new law gives individuals is not clear. I

:03:52.:03:57.

think it is a start, it puts a line in the sand certainly to say

:03:58.:04:02.

individuals, their personal data, it gives the sense of control and that

:04:03.:04:07.

is essential for trust and for the protection of a very fundamental

:04:08.:04:10.

right of privacy. Whether or not it will achieve that objective is

:04:11.:04:15.

another thing. Our data is in the hands of all kinds of companies, big

:04:16.:04:19.

and small. All of them have now got to get to grips with very complex

:04:20.:04:23.

new rules or face the threat of big fines.

:04:24.:04:26.

North Korea says it will make America "pay the price",

:04:27.:04:29.

for leading the international condemnation of its missile

:04:30.:04:30.

Over the weekend, the UN Security Council voted

:04:31.:04:35.

unanimously to impose sanctions against the country for carrying out

:04:36.:04:38.

Those tests have increased tensions in the region.

:04:39.:04:44.

Rupert Wingfield Hayes has had rare access to a US military base

:04:45.:04:47.

A relic of the Cold War, on the last Cold War frontier.

:04:48.:04:59.

Just after dawn, I'm riding the chase car as a US

:05:00.:05:02.

spy plane heads out on a classified mission.

:05:03.:05:07.

The pilot will climb to 70,000 feet, and from there, peer

:05:08.:05:09.

Our mission is to provide the capability for our

:05:10.:05:19.

leadership to see what's going on before anybody else.

:05:20.:05:24.

We're up there every single day to deter the North

:05:25.:05:27.

Koreans from deciding one day they can get away with something.

:05:28.:05:34.

From across the border tonight, fresh threats.

:05:35.:05:38.

North Korean state TV warning the US it will pay 1000

:05:39.:05:42.

times for its crime of imposing new economic sanctions on Pyongyang.

:05:43.:05:48.

Meeting in Manila with China's Foreign Minister, the US Secretary

:05:49.:05:51.

of State again called on Pyongyang to return to the negotiating table.

:05:52.:05:57.

The best signal that North Korea could give us that they're prepared

:05:58.:06:00.

to talk would be to stop these missile launches.

:06:01.:06:05.

Here in South Korea at the 51st Fighter Wing, they

:06:06.:06:07.

continue to hope for the best, whilst preparing for the worst.

:06:08.:06:12.

Everybody we've spoken to here agrees that another conflict on

:06:13.:06:15.

the Korean Peninsula would be an utter disaster for everybody.

:06:16.:06:20.

That hundreds of thousands of people would die.

:06:21.:06:23.

But they also say the best way of stopping it happening is

:06:24.:06:26.

And that's why these guys practice and practice and

:06:27.:06:30.

practice - so that Kim Jong-un knows that

:06:31.:06:32.

if he tries to attack the

:06:33.:06:33.

South, there will be an overwhelming and immediate response.

:06:34.:06:38.

I hope that North Korea calculates correctly and

:06:39.:06:40.

So obviously, everyone on this side, and I believe

:06:41.:06:46.

Should deterrents fail, though, we have to

:06:47.:06:55.

As these 8Ns roll down the runway for another

:06:56.:07:04.

practice flight, they are just 48 miles from the North Korean border.

:07:05.:07:07.

The same distance as London to Brighton.

:07:08.:07:10.

In South Korea, the enemy is never far away.

:07:11.:07:14.

Rupert Wingfield Hayes, BBC News, the Osan air base,

:07:15.:07:16.

Jeremy Corbyn returned from holiday today to begin three weeks

:07:17.:07:23.

of campaigning across the country - but on his first day back he's

:07:24.:07:26.

been facing questions about events abroad.

:07:27.:07:28.

When asked about violence in Venezuela, he said

:07:29.:07:32.

he condemned it - but failed to specifically criticise

:07:33.:07:34.

Nicolas Maduro has been accused of jailing opposition leaders,

:07:35.:07:40.

rigging a recent election and presiding over months

:07:41.:07:43.

of protests in which more than a hundred people have been

:07:44.:07:45.

killed, many at the hands of the security forces.

:07:46.:07:48.

Back from holiday and back on the campaign trail.

:07:49.:07:55.

Jeremy Corbyn says he and his party were written off

:07:56.:07:57.

He hopes this summer tour of Britain will build on the progress

:07:58.:08:05.

made in the election, and he will focus once

:08:06.:08:07.

It's no good congratulating firefighters, paramedics,

:08:08.:08:12.

police officers, for running into a burning building

:08:13.:08:15.

as they did at Grenfell Tower, and then denying them the proper

:08:16.:08:18.

reward of decent wages and job security in the future.

:08:19.:08:24.

Enough of this hypocrisy, pay them properly and fund

:08:25.:08:27.

Mr Corbyn insiss he's the only leader offering

:08:28.:08:33.

The next general election isn't due for almost five years

:08:34.:08:39.

but Westminster has been a volatile place recently and Jeremy Corbyn

:08:40.:08:42.

says he wants to be ready for the unexpected.

:08:43.:08:46.

Labour's identified dozens of seats where they believe they can beat

:08:47.:08:49.

And officials say Mr Corbyn is now in permanent campaign mode.

:08:50.:08:59.

But it's events thousands of miles away in Venezuela that some want

:09:00.:09:02.

A disputed vote has given President Maduro's ruling

:09:03.:09:09.

Violent protests have left over 100 dead.

:09:10.:09:13.

Would he now condemn President Maduro after voicing

:09:14.:09:16.

What I condemn is the violence that has been done by any side,

:09:17.:09:23.

Violence is not going to solve the issue.

:09:24.:09:27.

The issues in Venezuela are partly structural because not enough has

:09:28.:09:29.

been done to diversify the economy away from oil.

:09:30.:09:32.

That has to be a priority for the future.

:09:33.:09:35.

But critics say Mr Corbyn needs to go much further than that.

:09:36.:09:39.

Well, I would hope he would first of all

:09:40.:09:42.

condemn completely the dictatorial tendencies of the regime.

:09:43.:09:48.

or 15 years ago as a role model has actually failed, let alone apply

:09:49.:09:54.

The Labour leader is back where he feels comfortable,

:09:55.:09:58.

Over the next few weeks though his aim is to win over those

:09:59.:10:02.

who voted Conservative two months ago.

:10:03.:10:07.

Police have named a one-year-old girl who died when a car hit a wall

:10:08.:10:14.

Pearl Melody Black was killed yesterday when the unoccupied

:10:15.:10:18.

Range Rover rolled down a hill and struck a wall.

:10:19.:10:20.

In a statement her parents described her as "the brightest

:10:21.:10:24.

of stars" and that her death had left "a massive hole"

:10:25.:10:26.

Couples struggling to start a family face a postcode lottery when trying

:10:27.:10:35.

to get IVF treatment on the NHS in England.

:10:36.:10:37.

That's according to the charity Fertility Network UK -

:10:38.:10:43.

it says that in several areas there's been a cut in the number

:10:44.:10:46.

of IVF cycles offered or a reduction in the age at which women qualify

:10:47.:10:50.

Is this about clinical judgment or driven by money? It seems to be

:10:51.:11:04.

money, NHS clinical commissioning groups in England who pay for a

:11:05.:11:08.

local health care say the NHS does not have unlimited resources and

:11:09.:11:12.

they're making difficult decisions every day, balancing the needs of

:11:13.:11:16.

the individual against those of the entire local population. We've known

:11:17.:11:20.

about these restrictions to IDF for some time but the trend seems to

:11:21.:11:24.

have accelerated and in England, of 209 of these groups, 129 will offer

:11:25.:11:29.

just one cycle of IVF and five of them will not provide anything at

:11:30.:11:33.

all. Even though the clinical regulator says there should be

:11:34.:11:37.

pretty full cycles of IVF offered to women up

:11:38.:11:51.

to the age of 40. Some groups now are restricting it to those below

:11:52.:11:55.

the age of 35. Doctor said patients are being let down and left

:11:56.:11:57.

devastated and vulnerable and having to pay for IVF themselves if they

:11:58.:12:00.

can afford it. In contrast the NHS in Scotland offers three full cycles

:12:01.:12:03.

of IVF and in Wales it is too and in Northern Ireland one. Thank you very

:12:04.:12:05.

much. One of Scotland Yard's most senior

:12:06.:12:05.

counter terrorism programme Commander Dean Haydon has accused

parts of the Muslim community of not He said criticism of Prevent

was based on ignorance. He was speaking to Nomia Iqbal,

:12:13.:12:16.

from the BBC's Asian network. It's made some people question

:12:17.:12:21.

whether the Goverment's key strategy to stop people from being

:12:22.:12:27.

radicalised is working. The programme, called

:12:28.:12:32.

Prevent, has been accused of being toxic

:12:33.:12:34.

and stigmatising Muslims. But Scotland Yard's most

:12:35.:12:37.

senior counterterrorism Some of the criticisms

:12:38.:12:40.

:12:49.:12:50.

ignorance, that they don't understand properly

:12:51.:12:55.

how Prevent works... Prevent has been around

:12:56.:12:58.

for nearly 15 years. Teachers, parents and faith

:12:59.:13:01.

leaders refer people they are suspicious about to

:13:02.:13:03.

programme say its work deals with a range of threats across society,

:13:16.:13:23.

including far-right extremism. But some have criticised

it as an attack on Muslims, and are not

convinced by the way Critics say Prevent is not

transparent enough about what it I think we need

focused on safeguarding. So everybody feels confident, right

:13:43.:13:45.

from the beginning, that Prevent is not about spying, not about

:13:46.:13:48.

undermining a particular community, but it is about safeguarding

vulnerable individuals and keeping But critics are calling

:13:52.:13:54.

for an independent review of the And there is concern that until that

happens, Prevent will continue to generate mistrust

on BBC News... With all of the latest reports,

:14:56.:15:02.

Sickle cell disease is the most common and fastest growing genetic

:15:03.:15:05.

The NHS says the condition, which can cause extreme pain

:15:06.:15:09.

and life-threatening infections, affects 15,000 people in Britain,

:15:10.:15:14.

mainly people of African-Caribbean and Mediterranean origin.

:15:15.:15:18.

More than 300 babies are born each year with the condition.

:15:19.:15:22.

Children living with sickle cell are several hundred times more

:15:23.:15:26.

But experimental therapy could bring a glimmer of hope.

:15:27.:15:32.

Colleen Harris went to meet two young people whose lives have been

:15:33.:15:35.

Everyday things ten-year-old Matthew loves.

:15:36.:15:45.

But with sickle cell disease, that fun can come with a world of pain.

:15:46.:15:51.

I mostly have abdominal pain on my right or my left side.

:15:52.:15:57.

It feels like a needle is inside your stomach.

:15:58.:16:01.

So then you don't want to do anything, you just want to have,

:16:02.:16:07.

you just want to rest and hope it goes away.

:16:08.:16:13.

Come for your medication, sweetheart.

:16:14.:16:17.

Around 300 children are born with sickle cell every year.

:16:18.:16:21.

And a stroke is 250 times more common in a child

:16:22.:16:25.

That's one of the worries for Matthew's mum, who's been

:16:26.:16:30.

dealing with his illness since he was six months old.

:16:31.:16:34.

He's very brave, he's a little fighter, like I always say.

:16:35.:16:40.

You know, it's emotionally breaking him down.

:16:41.:16:50.

In a healthy person, red blood cells are usually smooth and round.

:16:51.:16:54.

But when you have sickle cell, some cells are abnormally shaped.

:16:55.:17:06.

They're stiff and sticky, and can clump together.

:17:07.:17:09.

That then blocks blood flow, restricting oxygen

:17:10.:17:11.

20-year-old university student Daniel has survived five strokes

:17:12.:17:14.

I couldn't push myself to do anything, even if I tried.

:17:15.:17:30.

So I just sort of stayed in bed, and I think my mum found something

:17:31.:17:37.

was strange and lifted up my hand, and it would completely drop down

:17:38.:17:40.

The next thing I remember is just my brother carrying

:17:41.:17:44.

So what hope is there for Daniel, Matthew, and thousands of others?

:17:45.:17:48.

Doctors are hopeful that gene therapy will eventually

:17:49.:17:50.

But it's still in the early stages of development, and there are talks

:17:51.:18:00.

The exciting thing that's happened recently is that one child in France

:18:01.:18:05.

has been successfully treated with gene therapy where the bone

:18:06.:18:08.

marrow is taken from the child and then the bone marrow is repaired

:18:09.:18:11.

But it's hopeful that having done it successfully once,

:18:12.:18:15.

this will then expand quite quickly to be more widely available.

:18:16.:18:22.

For Matthew, those are hopes to hold on to,

:18:23.:18:24.

A British woman has been shot and wounded in Brazil

:18:25.:18:29.

after accidentally driving into a poor neighbourhood

:18:30.:18:31.

Eloise Dixon was travelling with her partner and their three

:18:32.:18:35.

children in a popular coastal area near Rio de Janeiro.

:18:36.:18:39.

Their car was attacked after they took a wrong turn,

:18:40.:18:41.

She's reported to have responded well to surgery, and is said to be

:18:42.:18:47.

A 20-year-old British model who says she was kidnapped and held

:18:48.:18:55.

for nearly a week in Italy has returned to the UK.

:18:56.:18:58.

Chloe Ayling says she feared for her life.

:18:59.:19:01.

Italian police believe the model was attacked and drugged

:19:02.:19:03.

before attempts were made to sell her in an online auction.

:19:04.:19:07.

A Polish man who lives in the UK has been arrested.

:19:08.:19:11.

Held captive inside this isolated Italian farmhouse.

:19:12.:19:18.

The bizarre and elaborate kidnap allegation centres on how

:19:19.:19:22.

20-year-old model Chloe Ayling, from south London, was duped

:19:23.:19:25.

into leaving the UK for a photoshoot in Milan.

:19:26.:19:29.

Once inside this fake studio, she is said to have been snatched

:19:30.:19:32.

by three men and injected with the drug Ketamine.

:19:33.:19:36.

Unconscious, she was bundled into this bag, placed in the boot

:19:37.:19:39.

While Chloe Ayling was held captive in this house behind me,

:19:40.:19:44.

the police statement says she was tied to furniture,

:19:45.:19:47.

a chest of drawers, whilst the kidnappers tried

:19:48.:19:51.

to sell her on the dark web, and then raise a ransom.

:19:52.:19:55.

The hideout is surrounded by abandoned houses,

:19:56.:19:57.

TRANSLATION: First of all I saw this English man, this English painter.

:19:58.:20:04.

But before that, there was this Mercedes.

:20:05.:20:07.

The Mercedes disappeared, but they kept the Volvo.

:20:08.:20:18.

Italian authorities say Chloe Ayling was eventually released

:20:19.:20:20.

by one of her captors, and driven to the British

:20:21.:20:23.

Lukasz Herba, a Polish national living in the West Midlands,

:20:24.:20:27.

has been arrested in connection with kidnap and extortion.

:20:28.:20:31.

I've been through a terrifying experience.

:20:32.:20:38.

I feared for my life second by second, minute

:20:39.:20:41.

I am incredibly grateful to the Italian and UK authorities

:20:42.:20:45.

for all they have done to secure my safe release.

:20:46.:20:48.

Milan is a magnet for aspiring models, where the dangers

:20:49.:20:51.

of unscrupulous agencies have long been clear.

:20:52.:20:53.

But this rare case has shocked and baffled investigators here,

:20:54.:20:57.

still trying to piece together exactly what happened.

:20:58.:21:00.

It's Britain's busiest station, but almost half the platforms

:21:01.:21:06.

at London Waterloo are now shut due to major upgrade works.

:21:07.:21:10.

Network Rail says the closures are necessary to improve services.

:21:11.:21:14.

Emma, it still looks busy behind you.

:21:15.:21:29.

It is busy, George, but the trains have been replaced by noisy diggers

:21:30.:21:34.

in this part of Waterloo. This is possibly the biggest and most

:21:35.:21:42.

complex engineering that this train station has seen in a century. Ten

:21:43.:21:47.

platforms are closed until August 29, the day after the bank holiday.

:21:48.:21:51.

That is practically half the station. It is going to involve

:21:52.:21:55.

around 1000 engineers and on-site workers doing shifts around the

:21:56.:21:58.

clock. What they are basically doing, I don't know if you can see

:21:59.:22:02.

it, is extending the platforms to allow longer trains. This will

:22:03.:22:07.

eventually mean an extra 45,000 passengers will be able to go to and

:22:08.:22:12.

from Waterloo during rush hour every day. That's the game. But the pain

:22:13.:22:18.

is big disruption. But for months now, the real bosses have been

:22:19.:22:23.

urging passengers to work from home, find alternative routes, even go on

holiday. They do seem to be heeding that. Because we have had no payoffs

:22:28.:22:31.

today. One commuter said it was the best to meet the dive had. It was so

:22:32.:22:37.

quiet on the trains today. -- the best commute the dive had. We will

:22:38.:22:41.

have to see how things develop over the coming weeks. The big question

:22:42.:22:45.

is, will they get all of this done on time? Emma, thank you.

Cricket now, and England have won the fourth and final Test

:22:49.:22:50.

against South Africa at Old Trafford.

:22:51.:22:52.

They won by 177 runs, and have now won the series 3-1.

:22:53.:22:54.

Patrick Gearey reports from Old Trafford.

:22:55.:22:59.

Day four, the morning after the downpour before.

:23:00.:23:01.

Difficult for England to predict how long Old Trafford would stay dry.

:23:02.:23:04.

But they knew one day like this that's clear could see them right.

:23:05.:23:07.

COMMENTATOR: Well they just went into their shell...

:23:08.:23:09.

Last orders for South Africa this series - score 380 to win.

:23:10.:23:13.

Once it passed, before lunch, Dean Elgar was defenceless.

:23:14.:23:17.

His opening partner could be his early dining partner.

:23:18.:23:20.

Heino Kuhn also couldn't make the break.

:23:21.:23:22.

But in Hashim Amla, South Africa have one of the few players

:23:23.:23:26.

in world cricket capable of endurance batting.

:23:27.:23:30.

It took technology to end England's frustration.

:23:31.:23:32.

They called for it, believing Amla lbw.

:23:33.:23:35.

If his bat had touched ball, he was safe.

:23:36.:23:37.

Was that the moment South Africa knew they were done?

:23:38.:23:45.

Stealing a series win that will make this winter's opponents,

:23:46.:23:55.

England are not perfect, but this was looking

The new Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, says it's incredible and emotional

to be the first woman to play the Time Lord.

:24:08.:24:10.

In her first broadcast interview since being announced in the role,

she praised the fans, who she says have been very

She said she missed much of the bus because she's not on social media.

Oh, it's amazing! Where's that? Is that at Comic-Con? That is

brilliant, she is the first woman to be cast in the role. The show well,

fans. Because in this world particularly, there aren't rules,

:25:14.:25:17.

and that's a great thing, you know. So, hopefully, hopefully, everyone

:25:18.:25:25.

is as excited as I am. Why the hell are you here? She managed to keep

:25:26.:25:30.

our casting secret for weeks, a usual discipline for the role she

:25:31.:25:33.

was filming at the time. A nurse employer is noting a doctor, in a

drama, Trust Me. Bhogle are you sure about this? Playing a fake doctor,

hiding that she had been cast as the doctor, shooting Trust Me proved the

perfect diversion. It was brilliant, actually. The distraction of how

full-on this was an Busquets to all for that was epic. It was a

complete, you know, I could not... Split my attention in any way. So I

I was on set all day. She won't take over from Peter Capaldi on Doctor

wonderful way to start this massive journey. For the rest of your life

as well, it's one of the only role is you can't really say, you are

Before we go - twin panda cubs in Austria have been

celebrating their first birthday by attempting to

The pair, Fu Feng and Fu Ban, were given a selection

of gifts containing sweet potatoes and carrots.

Their mother tried to help the pair get into the boxes,

but one of the twins got distracted with a stick of bamboo.

not too many gifts from the weather, not even sweep the papers and

Scotland and northern England, heavy showers in southern parts of

This will continue, this line of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of

countryside, especially across Scotland, sunspots could get down to

:28:06.:28:09.

one or 2 degrees. Yes, it is August! This weather chart does not look

:28:10.:28:13.

like one you would want to see in August, either. A slow moving

weather front, this area of low pressure trying to roll its way in

Scotland, again the best of the sunshine. There shouldn't be too

Not too bad in the north-west with spells of sunshine, 17-19d. Most of
