The Brexit Secretary David Davis has said he doesn't accept that Irish

:00:07.:00:14.

border issues can be resolved in the first stage of the UK's

:00:15.:00:17.

The EU's Brexit guidelines state that Irish border

:00:18.:00:24.

issues should be tackled, along with citizenship

:00:25.:00:27.

rights and UK payments, before talks on a trade

:00:28.:00:29.

Here's our Economics and Business John Campbell.

:00:30.:00:37.

Last week the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier visited Ireland and

:00:38.:00:46.

gave a speech in which he said he wanted a bold and ambitious trade

:00:47.:00:49.

deal with the UK. He repeated the policy that full trade -- before

:00:50.:00:55.

trade talks could start there would be progress on how the border would

:00:56.:01:00.

be banished after Brexit. But David Davis said that trying to separate

:01:01.:01:04.

the border issue from the trade deal was illogical. How on earth do you

:01:05.:01:10.

resolve the border issue with the north of Ireland and the Republic

:01:11.:01:14.

unless you know what our general borders policy is, what the customs

:01:15.:01:18.

policy is, what the free-trade agreement is, whether you need to

:01:19.:01:21.

charge tariffs? David Davis said that the issue would become the

:01:22.:01:27.

political row of the summer. He is due to meet Michel Barnier after the

:01:28.:01:32.

UK election. It's possible that Michel Barnier can find some wiggle

:01:33.:01:37.

room. His guidelines say that trade talks can start after sufficient

:01:38.:01:40.

progress has been made on the preliminary issues. Much depends on

:01:41.:01:46.

what sufficient progress means in practice.

:01:47.:01:48.

The remains of a Spitfire fighter plane which crashed into a field

:01:49.:01:51.

in County Monaghan in 1942 have been recovered by a group

:01:52.:01:54.

A number of items were excavated near Emyvale yesterday.

:01:55.:01:58.

Our reporter Michael Fitzpatrick was there.

:01:59.:02:02.

Digging up the pieces of the past, the remains of an RAF Spitfire plane

:02:03.:02:09.

have lain untouched in this field for nearly 75 years. The majority of

:02:10.:02:14.

the wreckage was cleared at the time but a number of parts were left in

:02:15.:02:19.

the impact crater. Josie was five when the plane came down near her

:02:20.:02:24.

family home. I can remember crowds of people wanting to take pieces

:02:25.:02:28.

with them. Gathering around to see what happened. It was all exciting

:02:29.:02:37.

for us. The Spitfire pilot safely bailed out of the plane north of the

:02:38.:02:41.

border after his instruments froze. After each layer of birth is scraped

:02:42.:02:45.

away, new parts of the aircraft are revealed. Exciting times, we've come

:02:46.:02:52.

down onto one of the cylinder heads inside the Merlin engine. We don't

:02:53.:02:58.

know it is connected to the rest of the internal crankshaft, but a very

:02:59.:03:04.

strong smell of fuel, a lot of oil. After five hours of digging the

:03:05.:03:09.

Rolls-Royce engine was pulled from the Earth. All of the pieces will be

:03:10.:03:14.

cleaned and catalogue before being handed over to the County Monaghan

:03:15.:03:16.

Museum. Jonathan Rea is still leading

:03:17.:03:18.

the world superbike championship despite being beaten twice in two

:03:19.:03:22.

days by Welsh rival Chaz Davies. A second place finish meant reigning

:03:23.:03:26.

world champion Rea managed to extend his lead, coming

:03:27.:03:29.

away with 40 points. Now a look ahead to later this week

:03:30.:03:35.

when BBC Newsline's Mark Simpson will have the inside story

:03:36.:03:38.

of John McAreavey's recent Six years after Michaela McAreavey

:03:39.:03:50.

was murdered on her honeymoon here in Mauritius, her family is seeking

:03:51.:03:57.

justice. There are things that will stay with me for the rest of my

:03:58.:04:01.

life. So, they came here, 6000 miles, for five days. They appealed

:04:02.:04:06.

to the people of Mauritius for help. They put pressure on politicians and

:04:07.:04:11.

they return to the scene of the crime.

:04:12.:04:13.

And that's on BBC One Northern Ireland on Tuesday night at 10.40 -

:04:14.:04:16.

Now for the weather with Angie Phillips.

:04:17.:04:21.

Good evening, the weather has been quite changeable through the weekend

:04:22.:04:27.

and it's going to remain that way through the week ahead. Rain in the

:04:28.:04:32.

forecast, or showers, locally heavy and quite gusty wind. A bit fresher

:04:33.:04:39.

today, sunshine and showers, some of them heavy but they will fade

:04:40.:04:43.

tonight, only giving way to thickening cloud and more persistent

:04:44.:04:47.

rain overnight with a strengthening south easterly wind but at least it

:04:48.:04:51.

isn't cold, temperatures around 8-10. Tomorrow, eventually things

:04:52.:04:59.

will improve and it will feel warm but it's a miserable start, wet and

:05:00.:05:02.

windy. Not very pleasant for the warning rush-hour, a lot of surface

:05:03.:05:12.

spray. A miserable morning, wet and heavy bursts of rain, eventually

:05:13.:05:17.

moving east. Wet and windy in many parts, especially over Scotland and

:05:18.:05:20.

northern England. The wind not as strong in the South, turning more

:05:21.:05:27.

patchy through the afternoon. Temperatures not too bad, into the

:05:28.:05:32.

high teens. Quite a warm and humid day to come for Northern Ireland,

:05:33.:05:36.

heavy rain moving away leaving patches of light rain and drizzle

:05:37.:05:40.

and we may see temperatures in the east up to 19, 20 degrees,

:05:41.:05:45.

especially with some brightness. Through the week, low pressure in

:05:46.:05:49.

the Atlantic dominating the weather, plenty of white lines packed in,

:05:50.:05:56.

indicative of brisk wind. Quite breezy, quite a damp start in the

:05:57.:05:59.

north-west although things will turn a bit more dry and more fresh. In

:06:00.:06:05.

the meantime, rain bushing south. Warm and humid in the south-east,

:06:06.:06:08.

temperatures freshening up into Wednesday. Still quite wet here. A

:06:09.:06:15.

dry gap behind that, further spells of rain moving into the North and

:06:16.:06:19.

West. These showers could be quite heavy as they will be on Thursday

:06:20.:06:22.

with a risk of hail and thunder.

:06:23.:06:31.
