This is Breakfast, with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

North Korea's most provocative missile launch for years,

:00:13.:00:15.

as it fires a ballistic rocket over Japan.

:00:16.:00:18.

Warning sirens were sounded in Japan as people were told to take cover.

:00:19.:00:23.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has expressed outrage

siren on Tuesday morning as a North Korean missile through over the

country. The rocket was launched from near Pyongyang and flew over

sea to the ease. It is just the latest in a series of military

:02:41.:02:45.

missile test conducted by North Korea this year, but more serious

:02:46.:02:50.

because it went over Japan. The last time that happened was nearly two

:02:51.:02:54.

decades ago. TRANSLATION: The outrageous act of firing a missile

:02:55.:02:57.

over our country is a serious threat. That was Prime Minister

:02:58.:03:03.

Shinzo Abe. At a military base near Tokyo, a military drill was

conducted in response to the missile launch. Across the sea in South

Korea, joint exercises are under way with American troops. They are held

:03:14.:03:17.

every August, and North Korea usually responds with a show of

:03:18.:03:21.

strength. Last year it conducted a nuclear test in retaliation. This

:03:22.:03:25.

year it has flown and missile which had the potential to cause serious

:03:26.:03:31.

harm. --A missile. A strong message that despite international pressure,

:03:32.:03:37.

Pyongyang has no desire to stop. BBC News.

:03:38.:03:38.

Joining us from Japan is our Tokyo correspondent,

:03:39.:03:40.

Good morning to you. What is the response there? We have heard

:03:41.:03:58.

from... AUDIO ISSUES. It seems... Shinzo Abe called at unprecedented.

:03:59.:04:03.

Sorry, we lost you. Could you start again? Absolutely. I think for Japan

:04:04.:04:09.

the fact the Prime Minister has called this unprecedented represents

:04:10.:04:15.

how they view this as something extraordinary that has not happened

:04:16.:04:20.

before. We have seen it from North Korea before, but not a military

:04:21.:04:24.

ballistic missile going over Japan in this way before. It obviously

:04:25.:04:28.

makes Japan feel extremely vulnerable. It also poses a major

:04:29.:04:34.

challenge now for Japan and the united dates how to respond to this.

:04:35.:04:39.

There will be an emergency UN meeting in New York. -- United

:04:40.:04:43.

States. There will be new sanctions announced that the there will be

:04:44.:04:50.

limited options. If there is no response, Pyongyang may feel they

:04:51.:04:54.

have gotten away with it and will be encouraged to do this more, keep

:04:55.:04:58.

pushing the envelope, and doing more of these launches in the future.

:04:59.:05:04.

Thank you so much. More for you later in the programme.

:05:05.:05:08.

The "catastrophic" flooding in Texas is expected to get much worse,

:05:09.:05:14.

with officials warning they expect nearly half-a-million people

:05:15.:05:16.

With waters still rising, helicopters and hundreds

:05:17.:05:18.

of specialist vehicles have been deployed in the rescue effort.

:05:19.:05:21.

An emergency has also been declared in neighbouring Louisiana,

:05:22.:05:24.

Waiting for help to arrive as the floods reached new heights. All day,

:05:25.:05:38.

emergency responders, neighbours, and even complete strangers, have

:05:39.:05:42.

answered pleas for help from those trapped across Euston. And still it

:05:43.:05:47.

has not been in our. -- Houston. There is so much water. -- enough.

:05:48.:06:00.

Resources have been overwhelmed by the epic scale of this disaster. 20

:06:01.:06:06.

helicopters have been flying missions and the entire National

:06:07.:06:10.

Guard of the state has been deployed to aid in the search and rescue.

:06:11.:06:13.

Thousands have been saved, but many more have been desperate. From

:06:14.:06:18.

midnight until where we are today, 290 have been rescued. There are

:06:19.:06:25.

many other people out there in stressful situations and we intend

:06:26.:06:28.

to get to every one of them. They are struggling to stay a -- afloat.

:06:29.:06:36.

Every major highway has been affected. The city's infrastructure

:06:37.:06:43.

is being strained. It has been based since it made landfall. But

:06:44.:06:47.

communities in Texas are just now finding the impact. Authorities fear

:06:48.:06:53.

that the worst is yet to come. President Trump will travel to the

:06:54.:06:58.

state today. He has promised rapid Federal aid. Texas will need it.

:06:59.:07:04.

They face years of recovery in the wake of this unprecedented storm.

:07:05.:07:06.

BBC News, Texas. Amazing pictures. We will talk to

:07:07.:07:16.

people caught up in it later, in about 20 minutes.

:07:17.:07:19.

Brexit negotiations are continuing in Brussels after the EU told the UK

:07:20.:07:22.

it needed to get serious about the withdrawal talks.

:07:23.:07:25.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has expressed

:07:26.:07:27.

concern about the lack of progress made so far and accused Britain

:07:28.:07:30.

of ambiguity on key issues like its exit bill.

:07:31.:07:33.

The UK Brexit Secretary David Davis said both sides had to show

:07:34.:07:36.

Britain's busiest railway station is open for business as usual this

:07:37.:07:45.

morning after nearly a month of disruption,

:07:46.:07:47.

but some minor delays are expected due to signalling issues.

:07:48.:07:50.

Almost half of the platforms at Waterloo Station have been closed

:07:51.:07:53.

since the 5th of August as engineers made changes

:07:54.:07:55.

Network Rail says it's working hard to minimise delays to passengers.

:07:56.:08:02.

Hundreds of the UK's biggest companies will be made to reveal how

:08:03.:08:06.

much more their chief executives are paid compared to their average

:08:07.:08:08.

employee under government measures due to be announced later today.

:08:09.:08:11.

The plans are designed to increase boardroom transparency

:08:12.:08:13.

Firms who face significant shareholder opposition to executive

:08:14.:08:17.

pay deals will also be named and shamed on a new register.

:08:18.:08:26.

More than half of us mis-sold payment protection insurance,

:08:27.:08:28.

or PPI, may not yet have claimed compensation.

:08:29.:08:30.

The regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority,

:08:31.:08:32.

is launching a campaign later today encouraging people to claim before

:08:33.:08:35.

a deadline runs out in two years' time.

:08:36.:08:37.

So far, ?27 billion has been paid out in compensation with major

:08:38.:08:40.

banks, having set aside more than ?37 billion.

:08:41.:08:51.

The number of uninsured drivers on British roads may be increasing

:08:52.:08:54.

for the first time in more than a decade according to new data

:08:55.:08:57.

The Motor Insurance Bureau, which processes claims by victims

:08:58.:09:01.

of uninsured drivers, say there was an increase of 10%

:09:02.:09:04.

That rise could suggest that there are more uninsured people

:09:05.:09:08.

driving on UK roads, but increases in the overall number

:09:09.:09:10.

of drivers and the effect of claims management companies may also

:09:11.:09:13.

My children have been asking me for the last six weeks when does

:09:14.:09:30.

Strictly Come Dancing start? The wait is nearly over.

:09:31.:09:35.

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

:09:36.:09:38.

carpet event last night to mark the show's first launch

:09:39.:09:41.

since the death of Sir Bruce Forsyth.

:09:42.:09:43.

Judge Bruno Tonioli paid tribute to the show's former host on a night

:09:44.:09:46.

when the sequins and sparkles were out in force.

:09:47.:09:49.

Our entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba mingled with the stars

:09:50.:09:51.

Glitterballs and glamour, the new celebrities. They gathered for their

:09:52.:10:06.

launch show. The first to be broadcast since the death of Sir

:10:07.:10:11.

Bruce Forsyth. There will of course be a special tribute. He will always

:10:12.:10:16.

be with us. He is part of the show, our lives, the country. He is with

:10:17.:10:22.

us. As in previous series, the programme will be aiming to deliver

:10:23.:10:26.

entertainment, and perhaps even the odd surprise. Richard, we saw you

:10:27.:10:33.

coming down the red carpet. You have got some moves. I have. I don't know

:10:34.:10:39.

if they will be good for anyone. But they are bubbling like a volcano.

:10:40.:10:45.

You have watched Strictly Come Dancing as if you are. As a

:10:46.:10:49.

contestant? I will make sure I enjoyed it. -- as a viewer. I hope I

:10:50.:10:56.

don't get too nervous. Have you got any advice? She is so excited about

:10:57.:11:03.

me doing this. I have not got advice yet. But she will give me many tips.

:11:04.:11:09.

You are the first contestant to be in the show with a disability. How

:11:10.:11:16.

do you feel being a trailblazer? It shows the way that life in the show

:11:17.:11:21.

is going in general. The country is becoming more inclusive. As well as

:11:22.:11:26.

new contestants, there is also a new head judge. Taking over from Len

:11:27.:11:33.

Goodman. I don't feel much pressure. I have a good amount of experience.

:11:34.:11:42.

We will see on the night. Next month's launch show will give the

:11:43.:11:47.

public their first chance to see the new contestants in action. It will

:11:48.:11:51.

also be an opportunity for the programme and the viewers to

:11:52.:11:57.

remember Sir Bruce, a man who made Strictly Come Dancing one of the

:11:58.:11:59.

most popular shows on TV. BBC News. They have a few weeks to

:12:00.:12:00.

loosen up. Let's get an update on the flooding

:12:01.:12:15.

situation in Texas, which has dominated headlines

:12:16.:12:18.

all over the weekend. There's also been a declaration

:12:19.:12:20.

of a state of emergency CBS News correspondent, Meg Oliver,

:12:21.:12:23.

is in Houston for us now. Tell us, what is the latest

:12:24.:12:37.

situation? It hasn't even stopped raining! The rain just won't quit.

:12:38.:12:47.

It pounded Houston for a fourth consecutive day. It just picked up.

:12:48.:12:55.

It has gotten 40 inches of rain. By tomorrow morning, we could have

:12:56.:13:00.

another foot. Nothing is getting in the way of search and rescue cruise.

:13:01.:13:10.

There have been rescue operations all day. They have asked people to

:13:11.:13:17.

put flags on their roofs so they can be located. It has been an

:13:18.:13:21.

overwhelming job for the first responders. They have been asking

:13:22.:13:24.

for volunteers and the volunteers have responded. All day long we have

:13:25.:13:30.

seen dozens and dozens of people driving into Houston trying to

:13:31.:13:35.

navigate the flood ravaged highways. They were telling fishing boats

:13:36.:13:38.

behind them. Some people have come all the way from Louisiana. One

:13:39.:13:43.

person came from the New York police department who drove all the way

:13:44.:13:48.

down. They are here to help. They are willing to stay as long as it

:13:49.:13:53.

takes to rescue the remaining people still trapped. While we are talking

:13:54.:13:59.

to you we are seeing pictures of people being rescued. Overnight I

:14:00.:14:03.

read desperate messages of people on social media reporting they are on

:14:04.:14:07.

roofs and needing help. What is going on? Social media has really

:14:08.:14:12.

played an important role in all of this. There was one picture, a very

:14:13.:14:18.

moving picture, of senior citizens that were in waist high water. That

:14:19.:14:25.

was as soon as Hurricane Harvey hit. The owners of the care home could

:14:26.:14:29.

not get to them. They put it on social media. Quickly, the rescue

:14:30.:14:35.

teams were able to rescue them. That is the kind of thing that has been

:14:36.:14:40.

going on over and over again. If you cannot get there, at least you know

:14:41.:14:44.

people are being heard, cries for help are being heard. 75,000 people

:14:45.:14:52.

have called the 911 system. On an average day they get 8000. Thank you

:14:53.:15:00.

very much indeed. And now someone else in the US. The US Open. Not

:15:01.:15:11.

good news for the finest of Britain. We expected so much from Johanna

:15:12.:15:16.

Konta after Wimbledon. Playing on a surface that is not her favourite.

:15:17.:15:20.

You would expect she would do better at the US Open. It hasn't gone well.

:15:21.:15:33.

The world number seven was among the favourites for the title. She could

:15:34.:15:39.

have ended the tournament as world number one. The world number 78

:15:40.:15:47.

crawled back to pull off one of her biggest victory is. Juana contests

:15:48.:15:50.

said she simply played better. Kyle Edmund is through to the next round.

:15:51.:15:59.

The British youngster outside the top 200 has also made it through.

:16:00.:16:07.

England will look to bowl out the West Indies today to secure

:16:08.:16:10.

victory in the second test at Headingley.

:16:11.:16:12.

England built a lead of over 300 runs yesterday,

:16:13.:16:15.

before declaring in the final session.

:16:16.:16:17.

And Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is on the brink of joining Chelsea

:16:18.:16:20.

The England midfielder has started every game for the gunners this

:16:21.:16:24.

season, but has refused a deal to remain at the Emirates with just

:16:25.:16:27.

I am sure we will be talking about that story in the paper review in a

:16:28.:16:40.

moment. Not a happy camp. Here's Carol with a look

:16:41.:16:49.

at this morning's weather. Details on Houston as well as the

:16:50.:17:01.

local weather. When Harvey made landfall, he was a category format.

:17:02.:17:15.

--4. Part of the problem with him is that he is half onshore and half

:17:16.:17:21.

inland. He is driving further inland and weakening that one. Warm waters

:17:22.:17:26.

of the Gulf of Mexico in the night it is still picking up a source of

:17:27.:17:32.

energy. All that water is being deposited as we have seen footage.

:17:33.:17:37.

You can see the amount of rainfall, over one metre which has left the

:17:38.:17:40.

catastrophic situation that we have got. This is what's left of Harvey.

:17:41.:17:47.

An improving the situation across parts of Texas. Bringing some less

:17:48.:17:57.

than favourable situation is for the wheezy armour. Turning cooler for

:17:58.:18:03.

ask, parts of the south-east could see that once again. A weather front

:18:04.:18:09.

is sinking south, introducing a fair bit of cloud. Breezy in the north,

:18:10.:18:14.

sunshine and showers. In the south, cloud. Some patchy rain coming out

:18:15.:18:19.

of this and some murky conditions. The same across Wales. Drifting into

:18:20.:18:25.

northern England, this is where our weather front is resting. For

:18:26.:18:28.

Scotland, Northern Ireland and far north England, eight writers start

:18:29.:18:36.

with sunshine and a few showers. With the isobars, also fairly

:18:37.:18:40.

breezy. Temperatures in Aberdeen starting at about 10 degrees. Parts

:18:41.:18:45.

of the far north thing sunshine. Here is this weather front as we

:18:46.:18:49.

drift into the south-east. Some cloud this morning and into the

:18:50.:18:52.

afternoon. Could produce the odd shower. Here is where we will see

:18:53.:19:00.

the highest temperatures. In some parts of the south-east, we could

:19:01.:19:05.

get up to 28 degrees. All aware we have got the cloud. In the north,

:19:06.:19:10.

temperatures not dissimilar to what we saw yesterday. A range from the

:19:11.:19:17.

mid- - high teens. Getting into the south-east and bringing cloud with

:19:18.:19:21.

it, clearer skies. Showers following behind. A band of rain coming from

:19:22.:19:28.

the south-west. Meeting in the direction of Lincolnshire. Tonight,

:19:29.:19:31.

temperatures generally in double figures. Cooler in rural areas.

:19:32.:19:38.

Tomorrow, two bands of rain in the south-east. North of that, sunshine

:19:39.:19:44.

and showers. Quite easy. In the south-east, we could have 28. There

:19:45.:19:51.

could be a temperature of the least 10 degrees. Into the weekend, just

:19:52.:19:59.

to show you the contrast, some sheltered parts of Scotland could be

:20:00.:20:06.

looking at a touch of frost. What a contrast.

:20:07.:20:11.

Time to have a look at the papers. The launch of Strictly is all over

:20:12.:20:26.

the papers. Mollie is one of the favourites this year. And Brexit

:20:27.:20:35.

talks descend into a slanging match as we are told to behave seriously.

:20:36.:20:47.

Yesterday, we mentioned a child who was put into a foster family, a

:20:48.:20:54.

Christian girl who was put in to a Muslim care home. And I liked this

:20:55.:21:02.

story, you are never too old to start getting fit. Even if you start

:21:03.:21:08.

in your 40s and 50s, it can halve your risk of a stroke. It is never

:21:09.:21:17.

too late. The Daily Mirror, Strictly is all over, and breast cancer

:21:18.:21:28.

statins. Painkillers in racing blood pressure for arthritis sufferers.

:21:29.:21:33.

Also quite a lot of pictures of the magic weather from the bank holiday.

:21:34.:21:45.

I have talked before about the bank of Mum and dad helping people buy

:21:46.:21:50.

houses, now there is a story in the Telegraph about parents having to

:21:51.:21:55.

fork out for rent for their kids as well. Research found that parents

:21:56.:22:02.

will find ?2.3 billion of rental payments in 2017, on top of the over

:22:03.:22:10.

$6 billion that they have paid out in mortgage repayments on behalf of

:22:11.:22:16.

their children. We talked this morning about plastic bags. Quite an

:22:17.:22:23.

incredible story. We have to pay 5p in most stores for a plastic bag. We

:22:24.:22:27.

were talking about how Tesco are going to start charging more than

:22:28.:22:32.

that. In Kenya, it is quite different. If you use a plastic bag,

:22:33.:22:40.

you could face four years in prison. They have got the toughest laws

:22:41.:22:44.

against pollution. Anyone who sells or uses a plastic bag would face

:22:45.:22:50.

prison and fines. Even if you arrive at the airport as a tourist, if you

:22:51.:22:55.

have duty-free in a plastic bag and you leave the airport, you are in

:22:56.:23:00.

trouble. You have to leave them at the airport. I will chat about

:23:01.:23:06.

Arsenal in my next autumn. I don't want to miss this story. This is the

:23:07.:23:16.

world's leading mammal, saying that middle-aged men need to be careful

:23:17.:23:23.

in lycra -- Mamil. He says, never wear an aerodynamic helmet unless

:23:24.:23:30.

you are taking part in a time trial at the Olympics. Good advice. See

:23:31.:23:40.

you both later on. Texas is preparing for more flooding

:23:41.:23:41.

as Storm Harvey continues to move Thousands of people have already

:23:42.:23:44.

been rescued in Houston and officials are expecting another

:23:45.:23:48.

half-a-million people to seek Let's speak now to Alan Becerill

:23:49.:23:50.

who's at home in Houston, in the centre of some

:23:51.:23:56.

of the worst flooding. What's the situation

:23:57.:24:01.

where you are now? Good morning. Thank you for having

:24:02.:24:15.

me. Right now we still have reined in the area. It comes and goes.

:24:16.:24:21.

Sometimes it is light, sometimes it is heavy. Conditions keep changing

:24:22.:24:25.

every hour around the area. I live close to the Buffalo by you, one of

:24:26.:24:38.

the biggest exit damns in the area -- Bayou. -- dams. A reservoir in

:24:39.:24:52.

the area, if that opens, that will make the area a lot worse here

:24:53.:24:56.

because it has already experienced a lot of water. You think you will

:24:57.:25:03.

have to leave your home soon? The condition from the authorities is,

:25:04.:25:08.

if you are safe in your home, stay where you are. Most of the roads are

:25:09.:25:12.

blocked. The major interstate highways are on the way. It is

:25:13.:25:17.

difficult to go anywhere. Close to downtown, there is shelter.

:25:18.:25:24.

Authorities have created that. Right now, they have close to 5000 people

:25:25.:25:30.

in that area. They keep moving people from the south and the

:25:31.:25:36.

south-west, from the West and north, you can see the authorities going

:25:37.:25:41.

back and forward with helicopters, trucks, fire trucks. So it is a very

:25:42.:25:49.

challenging situation right now. Getting water supplies,

:25:50.:25:51.

nonperishable foods, that is all we can do at this point in time.

:25:52.:25:57.

Fortunately, we have not lost electricity, that is a big

:25:58.:26:00.

advantage. Hopefully it will stay that way. Thank you for talking to

:26:01.:26:08.

us. Please stay safe. Moving now to a town outside of Houston. What is

:26:09.:26:19.

going on there at the moment? To be honest, we have been pretty lucky.

:26:20.:26:23.

It is still raining, it has been raining constantly since Friday

:26:24.:26:30.

afternoon. Especially the last 12- 24 hours, they have been horrific.

:26:31.:26:36.

The systems around here are keeping us above water, but like everyone

:26:37.:26:40.

else, we need to keep an eye on things. We need to keep an eye on

:26:41.:26:49.

the bayous. I have been very fortunate to this point but I have

:26:50.:26:53.

to keep an eye on the situation closely. Talking about supplies, can

:26:54.:26:57.

you get the food and water that you need? We pretty much stocked up

:26:58.:27:09.

before this hurricane hit, I went to some local supermarkets. The ones

:27:10.:27:14.

that were open and had very long lines. Very limited access to

:27:15.:27:22.

anything. I would honestly say that that is a major concern of mine, as

:27:23.:27:27.

well as flooding, getting my hands on groceries and basic things that

:27:28.:27:32.

you need to live. Lots of luck, please stay safe. Thank you for

:27:33.:27:40.

joining us. The scale of flooding is terrible, it is getting worse.

:27:41.:27:44.

Time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are.

:27:45.:31:09.

I'm back with the latest from the BBC London newsroom

:31:10.:31:12.

This is Breakfast, with Louise Minchin

:31:13.:31:17.

We'll have news and sport in just a moment.

:31:18.:31:22.

And also on Breakfast this morning, we'll be live at the new billion

:31:23.:31:25.

pound Queensferry Crossing between Edinburgh and Fife

:31:26.:31:27.

where last night the first ceremonial crossings over

:31:28.:31:28.

Are there more uninsured drivers on our roads?

:31:29.:31:31.

New figures suggests there are and we'll be finding out

:31:32.:31:34.

And exploring the psychopathic mind, using new letters written by Moors

:31:35.:31:48.

murderer Ian Brady, a new documentary looks

:31:49.:31:50.

at whether psychopaths are born or made?

:31:51.:31:56.

A fascinating question, that, isn't it?

:31:57.:32:02.

But now, a summary of this morning's main news.

:32:03.:32:04.

The United Nations Security Council is to hold an emergency meeting this

:32:05.:32:08.

afternoon, after North Korea fired a ballistic missile over northern

:32:09.:32:10.

The missile, which fell into the sea, triggered loudspeaker

:32:11.:32:14.

alerts warning people on the island of Hokkaido to take cover.

:32:15.:32:18.

Japan's Prime Minister said the launch represented a serious

:32:19.:32:20.

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, said he was outraged.

:32:21.:32:27.

Let's go to our news correspondent Yogida Limaye,

:32:28.:32:29.

who joins us now from the South Korean capital of Seoul.

:32:30.:32:33.

Good morning. What has the reaction been? We have seen a strong response

:32:34.:32:44.

from South Korea. The president has ordered his military to display

:32:45.:32:46.

overwhelming force against North Korea. Four South Korean fighter

:32:47.:32:53.

jets conducted a live bombing drill against the North Korean leadership,

:32:54.:33:00.

a mock drill conducted here. It is significant. In the past three weeks

:33:01.:33:03.

all we have heard from the president is diplomacy and a peaceful

:33:04.:33:07.

resolution to the situation. But the latest testing from North Korea

:33:08.:33:11.

seems to have left him with no option but to respond with force. We

:33:12.:33:16.

also know that top military officers from South Korea and the US have

:33:17.:33:20.

spoken to each other and have said more measures are coming, but they

:33:21.:33:28.

have not said what they will be. Thank you so much.

:33:29.:33:36.

The "catastrophic" flooding in Texas is expected to get much worse,

:33:37.:33:39.

with officials warning they expect nearly half-a-million people

:33:40.:33:41.

With waters still rising, helicopters and hundreds

:33:42.:33:44.

of specialist vehicles have been deployed in the rescue effort.

:33:45.:33:47.

An emergency has also been declared in neighbouring Louisiana,

:33:48.:33:49.

Brexit negotiations are continuing in Brussels after the EU told the UK

:33:50.:33:55.

it needed to get serious about the withdrawal talks.

:33:56.:33:57.

The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has expressed concern

:33:58.:34:00.

about the lack of progress made so far and accused Britain

:34:01.:34:03.

of ambiguity on key issues like its exit bill.

:34:04.:34:05.

The UK Brexit Secretary David Davis said both sides had to show

:34:06.:34:08.

The source of a suspected chemical haze which drifted in from the sea

:34:09.:34:15.

yesterday in Sussex is still not known.

:34:16.:34:17.

People on several beaches had to be evacuated and around 150 people

:34:18.:34:20.

received hospital treatment after reporting vomiting and irritation.

:34:21.:34:22.

Officers say they don't now believe the toxic cloud came from northern

:34:23.:34:26.

More than half of us who were mis-sold payment protection

:34:27.:34:38.

insurance, or PPI, may not yet have claimed compensation.

:34:39.:34:40.

The Financial Conduct Authority, is launching a campaign today

:34:41.:34:43.

encouraging people to claim before a deadline runs out

:34:44.:34:45.

So far, ?27 billion has been paid out in compensation.

:34:46.:35:00.

Now, Notting Hill Carnival, it always throws up something. Have you

:35:01.:35:07.

seen this? I have not. A dancing policeman has become

:35:08.:35:09.

the star of this year's Notting Carnival, after video of him

:35:10.:35:11.

showing off his moves went viral PC Daniel Graham kept crowds

:35:12.:35:14.

entertained with his body-popping. He's no stranger to taking

:35:15.:35:20.

centre-stage though, he was also a contestant on last

:35:21.:35:22.

year's Britain's Got Talent. Look at that! Where does he... How

:35:23.:35:38.

did he learn that? Absolutely fantastic. Look at the crowd. The

:35:39.:35:47.

guy on the PA was giving him some love. Just get him involved in the

:35:48.:35:54.

next few weeks. Was a brilliant idea. I love that they were trying

:35:55.:36:03.

to persuade him to start dancing and he is pretending he doesn't want to.

:36:04.:36:10.

I watched it 25 times yesterday and you start noticing things happening

:36:11.:36:14.

in the background. There are a couple having a an argument in the

:36:15.:36:25.

background. I was transfixed in it. How is that for drama? I have got

:36:26.:36:28.

some drama for you, I am afraid. A dramatic opening day at the US

:36:29.:36:31.

Open where Maria Sharapova beat Sharapova was playing

:36:32.:36:35.

in her first grand slam event And Britain's Johanna Konta suffered

:36:36.:36:38.

a shock first-round defeat against unseeded Serbian

:36:39.:36:42.

Aleksandra Krunic. The world number seven was among

:36:43.:36:43.

the favourites for the title and could have ended the tournament

:36:44.:36:46.

as world number one. Konta won the first set,

:36:47.:36:49.

but the world number 78 fought back to pull off one of her

:36:50.:36:52.

biggest victories. It would be quite obnoxious of me to

:36:53.:36:59.

come in here expecting that I have a right to be in the second round. I

:37:00.:37:03.

am very much aware that to get that opportunity I need to work very

:37:04.:37:07.

hard. So, me losing in the first round is not ideal, as it is not for

:37:08.:37:12.

anybody. Anybody coming here wants to be in for as long as possible.

:37:13.:37:17.

But I lost to a better player today. Unfortunately, that is how sport

:37:18.:37:19.

goes. And Heather Watson's poor run

:37:20.:37:19.

at Flushing Meadows continues. She was knocked out by Alize Cornet

:37:20.:37:22.

in saight sets in the first round. Despite winning the junior

:37:23.:37:26.

tournament in 2009, it's the seventh successive year the British number

:37:27.:37:28.

two has gone out in the first round. She's yet to win a match

:37:29.:37:32.

at the US Open as a senior. It was a better day

:37:33.:37:43.

for Britain's men though. Kyle Edmund won his first

:37:44.:37:46.

round match against Robin Hasse He's joined in the second

:37:47.:37:48.

round by youngster Cameron Norrie after his opponent, Dmitry Tursonov

:37:49.:37:52.

retired through injury Norrie, who is ranked outside

:37:53.:37:54.

the world's top 200, was leading by two sets

:37:55.:37:58.

to love at the time. England have a lead of 321 over

:37:59.:38:02.

the West Indies in the second test going into the final

:38:03.:38:06.

days play at Headingley. England had the better of day four,

:38:07.:38:08.

with six batsmen scoring at least half centuries in

:38:09.:38:11.

the second innings. But the innings of the day went

:38:12.:38:13.

to Moeen Ali, who scored 84 off A win for England

:38:14.:38:18.

will seal the series. The last day pitch, as a spinner,

:38:19.:38:43.

you always look how it will go. Nice for the seamers. It is heart when it

:38:44.:38:53.

is overcast. Hopefully I can get out to bowl tomorrow. -- hard.

:38:54.:38:54.

With the football transfer window closing in two days' time clubs

:38:55.:38:57.

Ant it appears that Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is set

:38:58.:39:01.

The England midfielder has started every game for the gunners this

:39:02.:39:05.

season, but has refused a deal to remain at the Emirates with just

:39:06.:39:09.

Arsenal are looking to make some money from his transfer now,

:39:10.:39:13.

rather than lose him for nothing next summer.

:39:14.:39:15.

Tour de France champion Chris Froome is considering competing

:39:16.:39:18.

in the World Championships in Norway next month.

:39:19.:39:20.

Froome, who's currently leading the Vuelta a Espana,

:39:21.:39:22.

says he's considering both the team and individual time trials.

:39:23.:39:25.

He last rode in the World Championships in 2013 when GB won

:39:26.:39:28.

You would think he might want a rest.

:39:29.:39:33.

Great Britain's Ashley McKenzie was eliminated on day one

:39:34.:39:35.

at the World Judo Championships in Budapest.

:39:36.:39:37.

The two-time Olympian lost in his opening bout in the under

:39:38.:39:40.

British Judo has sent a team of 12 athletes to the event in Hungary

:39:41.:39:45.

including Rio Olympic bronze medallist Sally Conway

:39:46.:39:47.

That is the thing with judo, one mistake and it is over, and I made

:39:48.:40:05.

that mistake. I will assess it. I had to try my hardest to get out of

:40:06.:40:11.

the pinning, but unfortunately I did not. I promised you a story about

:40:12.:40:18.

Arsenal. They are on every front page. It is talking about the broken

:40:19.:40:25.

dressing room. They were defeated 4-0 on the weekend. You would

:40:26.:40:29.

imagine Arsene Wenger would have got an angry, raged, been mortified.

:40:30.:40:36.

According to this he was silent. He was so angry he did not speak. But

:40:37.:40:50.

you might want him to have something to say. What is going on with them?

:40:51.:40:56.

Maybe he needs to be more vocal. I think fans want him to be furious.

:40:57.:41:03.

They want anger. Interesting to see what happens in the next game. Thank

:41:04.:41:05.

you. Britain's busiest railway station

:41:06.:41:06.

is open for business as usual this morning after nearly a month

:41:07.:41:09.

of disruption but some minor delays are expected due

:41:10.:41:12.

to signalling issues. Almost half of the platforms

:41:13.:41:13.

at Waterloo Station have been closed since the fifth of August

:41:14.:41:17.

as engineers made changes Our reporter, Simon Clemison,

:41:18.:41:19.

joins us from Waterloo now. Simon, are services

:41:20.:41:24.

running as expected? Good morning. So, what are the

:41:25.:41:33.

timetable is looking like for today? Any delays? Good morning. Listen to

:41:34.:41:41.

this. It is the gentle buyers of the early-morning commute. -- buzz. It

:41:42.:41:47.

might be strange to want to listen to it after the Bank Holiday

:41:48.:41:51.

weekend. But that is what it is about. Getting Waterloo Station back

:41:52.:41:56.

up to full capacity, in fact, even greater capacity. That is what this

:41:57.:42:01.

engineering work has been about. I have to say, it has not gone

:42:02.:42:06.

according to plan for NetworkRail this morning. You can see delays and

:42:07.:42:18.

cancellations. There have been ?800 million worth of engineering work

:42:19.:42:23.

undertaken here to create longer platforms and have four longer

:42:24.:42:27.

trains. It has been described as some of the biggest and most complex

:42:28.:42:32.

work ever done by the company. For that reason, they say they are

:42:33.:42:36.

having complexities and problems with signalling this morning. For

:42:37.:42:40.

safety, it is putting delays on the early services. How that will pan

:42:41.:42:46.

out during the day, we don't know. I have seen trains starting to come

:42:47.:42:50.

and go from here, so it is looking hopeful. And also to say, it is

:42:51.:43:01.

confusing, we have seen works at Euston and so on, London Bridge. A

:43:02.:43:07.

whole series of works peaked during the Bank Holiday weekend. They are

:43:08.:43:12.

trying to get back to normality. They may be doing it. It does not

:43:13.:43:18.

look very busy. You get the feeling many people are still on holiday. It

:43:19.:43:24.

is a slow return to normal. What an amazing Bank Holiday yesterday.

:43:25.:43:27.

Terrible weather elsewhere in the world. We will have that soon. The

:43:28.:43:31.

headlines. North Korea has fired a missile over

:43:32.:43:37.

northern Japan in a move the Japanese Prime Minister has

:43:38.:43:40.

called an "unprecedented" threat President Trump has pledged his full

:43:41.:43:43.

support for the state of Texas as the region continues to be hit

:43:44.:43:47.

by "catastrophic" flooding caused Yesterday saw the hottest

:43:48.:43:50.

late-August bank holiday Monday on record, with 28.2 degrees celsius

:43:51.:43:58.

at Holbeach in Lincolnshire. Before we get the latest from Carol,

:43:59.:44:01.

our cameras have been out and about capturing your fun

:44:02.:44:05.

in the sun, let's take a look It sounded like a Grade Two piano

:44:06.:44:44.

piece. Good morning. Today, somewhere in Kent could hit

:44:45.:45:19.

21 degrees. Another statistic is that, if you are at all moral

:45:20.:45:25.

yesterday, you will notice a huge difference. The temperature will

:45:26.:45:29.

pick up through the day. For many of us, cool. Quite a bit cooler than

:45:30.:45:36.

yesterday for some. It is also fairly easy. This weather front is

:45:37.:45:43.

fairly weak, producing quite a lot of cloud and murky conditions.

:45:44.:45:51.

Patchy rain across south-west England and Wales. Extending through

:45:52.:45:57.

Yorkshire. To the north, a brighter start. The same across Northern

:45:58.:46:03.

Ireland. One or two showers and a brighter start across Scotland.

:46:04.:46:09.

Temperatures dropping, and showers mainly in the north and west. 14

:46:10.:46:14.

Celsius at eight o'clock in Newcastle. Then, back into some

:46:15.:46:20.

clearer skies in the south-east and East Anglia. Temperatures picking up

:46:21.:46:27.

quickly. Temperature is flirting of the coast of Kent, showers could

:46:28.:46:32.

come off the shore or push away. Through the day, that weather front

:46:33.:46:39.

pushing south-east. It won't get here with the wind offshore. Feeling

:46:40.:46:43.

nice, high temperatures up to 28 degrees. On the other side of that

:46:44.:46:48.

front, much cooler than it was yesterday. And it will be the same

:46:49.:46:53.

underneath the weather front. Tonight and overnight, this weather

:46:54.:46:58.

front pushing down into the south-east. Some spots of rain.

:46:59.:47:02.

Showers coming in on the breeze from the northern half of the country. We

:47:03.:47:07.

have got a band of rain across south-west England, Wales, into the

:47:08.:47:11.

Midlands. Heading in the direction of Yorkshire. Not a cold night, but

:47:12.:47:16.

it will be in the countryside. Tomorrow, a band of rain. A second

:47:17.:47:21.

one coming back into the south-east. That will have an inverse impact on

:47:22.:47:30.

our temperatures. Tomorrow could be 10 degrees lower than today. On the

:47:31.:47:35.

other side, back into a cocktail of sunshine and showers. Breezy in the

:47:36.:47:42.

north, high temperatures 16- 17. Thank you.

:47:43.:47:48.

Hundreds of the UK's biggest companies will be made to reveal how

:47:49.:47:51.

much more their chief executives are paid compared

:47:52.:47:53.

It's part of government plans to increase transparency

:47:54.:47:57.

The government are trying to do something about it.

:47:58.:48:07.

The pay packages of some of our top bosses can be tens

:48:08.:48:10.

Sometimes these high pay packets are challenged by the company's

:48:11.:48:14.

shareholders - but that hasn't stopped many of

:48:15.:48:16.

Today's measures are designed to change that.

:48:17.:48:19.

Under the proposals firms that have seen a shareholder revolt on pay

:48:20.:48:23.

will be named on a new public register.

:48:24.:48:33.

This is one step removed from the original proposal

:48:34.:48:35.

which was to give shareholders a veto on excessive executive pay.

:48:36.:48:38.

Hundreds of our biggest companies will also be forced to reveal how

:48:39.:48:42.

much their chief executives get compared to their average employee.

:48:43.:48:44.

And there are new measures to ensure the employee's voice is heard

:48:45.:48:48.

But it's a step back from having workers on the committees that set

:48:49.:48:52.

Let's talk to Dr Roger Barker who's from the Institute of Directors.

:48:53.:48:57.

Good morning. What are your thoughts on this? Will it have much of an

:48:58.:49:03.

impact? We welcome this as a broadly sensible package of measures, but I

:49:04.:49:06.

don't think it is going to have a huge impact. If you look at what the

:49:07.:49:10.

Prime Minister proposed about a year ago, it is a much less ambitious

:49:11.:49:14.

proposal. That is because of the politics of racks that and

:49:15.:49:17.

everything that has happened over the last year. Broadly speaking, we

:49:18.:49:20.

welcome it. What are your thoughts on how we solve the problem of

:49:21.:49:26.

controversy around CEO pay? It is very important that investors

:49:27.:49:29.

continue to play a very act gives role in holding CEO pay to account.

:49:30.:49:37.

They have shareholder votes every year which they can use to show

:49:38.:49:42.

their discontent or a approval. They have got to keep the pressure on. It

:49:43.:49:46.

is shareholders that should be holding companies to account. The

:49:47.:49:50.

Prime Minister was talking about how the excesses of some bosses are

:49:51.:49:56.

undermining confidence in the social fabric of the country. Do you agree?

:49:57.:50:03.

Yes, if you look at the pay of losses of large companies over the

:50:04.:50:07.

last 10- 15 years, it has really outstripped the performance of the

:50:08.:50:11.

companies themselves and the economy as a whole. I don't think that does

:50:12.:50:15.

anything good to trust in UK businesses. Wards and CEOs,

:50:16.:50:22.

shareholders, they all have a responsibility to try and get this

:50:23.:50:26.

issue under control. Another idea is about having employees' voices heard

:50:27.:50:33.

in the boardroom. Of course, that means you have to have an employee

:50:34.:50:37.

in the boardroom. What do you think that will mean in practice? What

:50:38.:50:43.

they are proposing is that companies are given a choice as to how they

:50:44.:50:47.

can include the employee voice in the boardroom. There are various

:50:48.:50:54.

options given to companies. I think that is a better approach than

:50:55.:50:58.

saying, you must have an employee sitting on your board or committee,

:50:59.:51:03.

because I think companies are different. They have different ways

:51:04.:51:07.

of taking account of the employee voice. Getting a bit more

:51:08.:51:16.

flexibility to companies I think is a good reaction to these proposals.

:51:17.:51:21.

It was the Spanish soap that the BBC hoped would bring a little sunshine

:51:24.:51:27.

to the TV schedules, but Eldorado lasted only

:51:28.:51:29.

25 years on and you may be surprised to learn that the set

:51:30.:51:34.

is still standing, in a forest near to the Costa del Sol.

:51:35.:51:43.

Our arts correspondent David Sillito has been in search of Eldorado,

:51:44.:51:46.

and asks if, in the age of Brexit, is it the right time to revisit

:51:47.:51:50.

Hello. I am looking for Eldorado. OK, I have slightly exaggerated how

:51:51.:52:20.

hard it is to find, but here it is, the original set of the short lived

:52:21.:52:25.

so, Eldorado. Intact, and abandoned. It all feels a bit Indiana Jones.

:52:26.:52:45.

Welcome. He is not your father! There has been a rather unfortunate

:52:46.:52:51.

accident. One of its main styles was Polly Perkins. -- stars. I wouldn't

:52:52.:53:04.

give her any more brandy. I asked her, fancy a trip to Eldorado? What

:53:05.:53:12.

are your thoughts looking at it? It is a terrible shame, what a waste!

:53:13.:53:17.

There were good act is, good storylines here. It was beautiful.

:53:18.:53:24.

Would you want to bring Eldorado back? Yes, why not? There are a lot

:53:25.:53:30.

of people, when I worked in a show or do something, they ask, what

:53:31.:53:37.

happened to Eldorado? -- actors. She is not the only one who would love

:53:38.:53:41.

to see it return. 10 million watched the final episode, but what would

:53:42.:53:47.

today's storyline be? I went in search of the real-life Eldorado set

:53:48.:53:51.

on the Costa del Sol. The jive class was in full swing. Is this Eldorado?

:53:52.:54:00.

I think it is. It seems like Heaven. It is. Of course, Eldorado in 1992

:54:01.:54:08.

reflected a time of deepening European ties. The Brexit vote

:54:09.:54:12.

changed everything. Owuor panicked because of Brexit. They sold their

:54:13.:54:19.

properties, they didn't want to wait to know what was going to happen. Of

:54:20.:54:25.

course, most stayed. People say it is going to be this or that, we say,

:54:26.:54:31.

nobody knows. Nobody has come out and said, this is what will affect

:54:32.:54:37.

you, this is what won't. Whatever happens, happens. It may have been

:54:38.:54:44.

lost to time, by 25 years on, the set is ready to go, just in case

:54:45.:54:49.

someone thinks it is a good time for a turbulent Euro drummer. --

There is one story I wanted to check on. Did you know that apparently,

:55:13.:55:21.

hanging windchimes in the kitchen could be the secret to encouraging

:55:22.:55:26.

fussy children to eat their vegetables? That is according to in

:02:24.:02:28.

The United Nations Security Council is to hold an emergency meeting this

:02:29.:02:33.

afternoon, after North Korea fired a missile over northern Japan.

:02:34.:02:36.

The rocket, which fell into the sea, triggered loudspeaker

:02:37.:02:39.

alerts warning people on the island of Hokkaido to take cover.

:02:40.:02:41.

Japan's Prime Minister said the launch represented a serious

:02:42.:02:44.

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, said he was outraged.

:02:45.:02:47.

Our correspondent, Yogida Limaye, reports

:02:48.:02:49.

from the South Korean capital of Seoul.

:02:50.:02:54.

Japan being woken up by a siren on Tuesday morning as a North Korean

:02:55.:03:04.

The rocket was launched from near Pyongyang and flew over

:03:05.:03:14.

the northern island of Hokkaido, before splitting into three parts

:03:15.:03:16.

It is just the latest in a series of military missile tests conducted

:03:17.:03:26.

by North Korea this year, but a more serious one

:03:27.:03:29.

The last time that happened was nearly two decades ago.

:03:30.:03:33.

"The outrageous act of firing a missile over our country is a gave

:03:34.:03:36.

and serious threat," said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

:03:37.:03:44.

At a military base near Tokyo, a military drill was conducted

:03:45.:03:47.

Across the sea in South Korea, joint exercises are under way

:03:48.:03:52.

They are held every August, and North Korea usually responds

:03:53.:03:56.

Last year, it conducted a nuclear test in retaliation.

:03:57.:04:00.

This year, it has flown a missile which had the potential

:04:01.:04:02.

A strong message that despite international pressure,

:04:03.:04:06.

Joining us from Japan, is our Tokyo correspondent,

:04:07.:04:17.

A certain level of consternation, fear from the public and anger from

the political leadership. You can imagine that people on the West

work up to the sound of sirens. They are usually only here for an

They were told of a public address systems to head full basements and

:04:57.:05:02.

concrete buildings. -- like head for basements. It is something that

:05:03.:05:05.

hasn't happened here since the Second World War. A very new reality

:05:06.:05:10.

for Japan and you can see the response from Prime Minister Shinzo

:05:11.:05:14.

Abe and his angry words, calling it an act of violence against Japan.

:05:15.:05:18.

Just how ruffled and angry the Japanese government is. That North

:05:19.:05:23.

Korea has dead to fly this missile over the top of the country. Thanks

:05:24.:05:27.

for that. We will talk little later in the programme to a rear Admiral

:05:28.:05:32.

about that and also somebody from the Japanese embassy as well.

:05:33.:05:33.

The 'catastrophic' flooding in Texas is expected to get much worse -

:05:34.:05:36.

with officials warning they expect nearly half-a-million people

:05:37.:05:39.

With waters still rising, helicopters and hundreds

:05:40.:05:41.

of specialist vehicles have been deployed in the rescue effort.

:05:42.:05:44.

An emergency has also been declared in neighbouring

:05:45.:05:46.

Louisiana, which is in storm Harvey's path.

:05:47.:05:48.

Waiting for help to arrive as the floods reached new heights.

:05:49.:06:08.

All day, emergency responders, neighbours, and even complete

:06:09.:06:10.

strangers, have answered pleas for help from those

:06:11.:06:13.

We have to save our babies, that's it.

:06:14.:06:33.

Resources have been overwhelmed by the epic scale of this disaster.

:06:34.:06:36.

20 helicopters have been flying missions and the entire state's

:06:37.:06:39.

National Guard has been deployed to aid in the search and rescue.

:06:40.:06:51.

Thousands have been saved, but many more have been desperate.

:06:52.:06:53.

From midnight until where we are today, 290 have been rescued.

:06:54.:06:56.

There are many other people out there in stressful situations

:06:57.:06:59.

and we intend to get to every one of them.

:07:00.:07:02.

Houston is struggling to stay afloat.

:07:03.:07:04.

Parts of the metropolis have been spared.

:07:05.:07:07.

Every major highway has been affected.

:07:08.:07:08.

The city's infrastructure is being strained.

:07:09.:07:12.

It has been days since it made landfall.

:07:13.:07:14.

But communities in Texas are just now finding the impact.

:07:15.:07:20.

Authorities fear that the worst is yet to come.

:07:21.:07:22.

President Trump will travel to the state today.

The state faces years of recovery in the wake of this unprecedented

Brexit negotiations are continuing in Brussels after the EU told the UK

:07:36.:07:43.

it needed to get serious about the withdrawal talks.

:07:44.:07:46.

The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has expressed concern

:07:47.:07:48.

about the lack of progress made so far and accused Britain

:07:49.:07:51.

of ambiguity on key issues like its exit bill.

:07:52.:07:54.

The UK Brexit Secretary David Davis said both sides had to show

:07:55.:07:57.

Our Brussels correspondent Adam Fleming joins us now.

:07:58.:08:00.

What can we expect to take place today? It is day two of round three

:08:01.:08:20.

and we are being warned it will all be very technical. We are told not

:08:21.:08:25.

to expect any breakthroughs. If you look at the scoreboard of where we

:08:26.:08:29.

are, there is still quite a lot of a disagreement. The issue of rights of

:09:00.:09:03.

much money the UK owes the EU for its financial obligations, there is

:09:04.:09:07.

a massive dispute that and what the UK side is going to do it pick

:09:08.:09:15.

apart. The EU wants to talk about how much money they have. We will

:09:16.:09:20.

tell you at the end of the week what they have decided. It sounds like

:09:21.:09:22.

it's going very well. Britain's busiest railway station

:09:23.:09:23.

is open for business as usual this morning after nearly

:09:24.:09:26.

a month of disruption, but some minor delays are expected

:09:27.:09:28.

due to signalling issues. Almost half of the platforms

:09:29.:09:31.

at Waterloo station have been closed since the fifth of August

the public their first chance to see It will also be an opportunity

:12:18.:12:22.

for the programme and the viewers to remember Sir Bruce,

:12:23.:12:28.

a man who helped make Strictly one Back to the main story. North Korea

:12:29.:12:50.

has fired a missile over Japan. The missile was launched shortly after

:12:51.:12:56.

6am local time from a site close to the North Korean capital, John

:12:57.:13:01.

Young. It flew nearly 3000 kilometres and over the northern

:13:02.:13:05.

Japanese island of Hokkaido, triggering warning sirens.

:13:06.:13:11.

The Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, said the launch

:13:12.:13:13.

was an unprecedented, serious, and grave threat to his nation.

:13:14.:13:16.

North Korea has fired rockets over Japan twice in the past

:13:17.:13:19.

- once in 1998 and again in 2009 - but on those occasions Pyongyang

:13:20.:13:23.

claimed those they were satellite launches, not weapons.

:13:24.:13:25.

Just before midnight, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson

:13:26.:13:27.

tweeted that he was "outraged" by what he called North Korea's

:13:28.:13:30.

Joining us from our Southampton newsroom is a former Nato Commander,

:13:31.:13:33.

and security expert, Rear Admiral Chris Parry.

:13:34.:13:43.

Thank you for joining us. How serious is this? What we are seeing

:13:44.:13:52.

is a change in tactics from North Korea. They were thoroughly

:13:53.:13:56.

frightened off by what America said they would do to them if they

:13:57.:13:59.

continue down this path. What they are doing now is trying to provoke

:14:00.:14:04.

America's allies in the region. What we need to understand is the context

:14:05.:14:08.

in which this decision are being made. North Korea, as a regime, is

:14:09.:14:13.

possibly on its last legs. You have extensive salmon, droughts, and used

:14:14.:14:21.

are seeing the start of significant unrest -- famine. All the costs

:14:22.:14:26.

involved in this nuclear programme and it really can't get off the

:14:27.:14:33.

train. What it is doing is trying to get attacked so it can project

:14:34.:14:36.

outwards all the problems it has internally. Do you think that will

:14:37.:14:42.

happen? Rola with these sorts of actions, they are feeling the water.

:14:43.:14:46.

This is something that has happened before -- with these sorts of

:14:47.:14:50.

actions. I wouldn't say the rocket were guided over Japan. They have

:14:51.:14:55.

gone for one of America's allies in the region and I think they will

:14:56.:14:59.

step up the aggravation the more desperate the situation gets in

:15:00.:15:03.

North Korea. And if this is a regime on its last legs, to you think

:15:04.:15:08.

that's what makes it more dangerous? Yes, indeed. We need to understand

:15:09.:15:12.

if you look at the end of the Second World War, you had an Nazi regime

:15:13.:15:16.

that was completed -- committed to fight to the last surrender. If you

:15:17.:15:21.

back them into a corner, they will lash out. I think we will seek

:15:22.:15:25.

escalating levels of violence. The next thing we might need to look out

:15:26.:15:29.

for is the possibility of an underground nuclear test around

:15:30.:15:32.

September nine which is a big celebration day in North Korea and

:15:33.:15:36.

think the intelligence suggests that preparations are being made to that.

:15:37.:15:40.

Another demonstration of how you push outwards all your problems. If

:15:41.:15:44.

you look on social media at the moment, I detect you are seeing

:15:45.:15:49.

increasing unrest in North Korea. Can you also explain to us, the

:15:50.:15:54.

Japanese, there were warnings in Hokkaido. Why would they not shoot

:15:55.:15:59.

it down? Two reasons. One, they probably couldn't because they don't

:16:00.:16:02.

have the system that is deployed to South Korea. I also think they

:16:03.:16:08.

probably plotted its trajectory as it passed overhead, 350 miles above

:16:09.:16:12.

Japan, saw that it would pass over the top and thought, well, actually,

:16:13.:16:17.

we don't want to undercover Alt best systems, when need to save them for

:16:18.:16:22.

the day where we actually do see a missile coming in to land on

:16:23.:16:25.

Japanese territory. I do think we shouldn't be in any doubt that

:16:26.:16:28.

foreign ballistic missile is over other peoples country since all

:16:29.:16:31.

sorts of signals which could be interpreted the wrong way sometimes.

:16:32.:16:35.

Absolutely. It sounds like an extreme dangerous situation. We know

:16:36.:16:39.

there is a meeting later this afternoon with the UN Security

:16:40.:16:42.

Council. What can be done to bring down the pressure and make things

:16:43.:16:44.

better in some ways? I think there has to be a unanimous

:16:45.:16:53.

vote today to say to North Korea, enough is enough. You are not just

:16:54.:17:00.

upsetting the US and its allies, you are upsetting the rest of the world.

:17:01.:17:06.

You are capable of striking a wide region, we know that. We need to

:17:07.:17:10.

come to a situation where you are talking to us, rather than waving

:17:11.:17:14.

your fist. No doubt, at some stage, the world's two superpowers will

:17:15.:17:20.

force you to do it. Very good to talk to you.

:17:21.:17:38.

And after eight o'clock we'll be talking to a senior official

:17:39.:17:41.

from the Japanese embassy in London.

:17:42.:17:43.

We have been talking a lot about the damage from Harvey, Carol has those

:17:44.:17:51.

details and our weather as well. When Harvey made landfall, it was a

:17:52.:17:58.

category four. It has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but

:17:59.:18:02.

we are still seeing a lot of rainfall causing problems.

:18:03.:18:08.

Devastating winds in rock port, the reason we still have all this rain

:18:09.:18:12.

is because the tropical is dorm is half onshore and half offshore --

:18:13.:18:18.

Rockport. It is picking up energy and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico

:18:19.:18:28.

and depositing it across Texas. To give you an idea of the rainfall we

:18:29.:18:32.

have seen in Texas, some parts have seen over a metre. On Tuesday and

:18:33.:18:38.

Wednesday, you will notice that the wind is starting to drive further

:18:39.:18:45.

north. We will see an improvement in Houston, but conditions likely to

:18:46.:18:51.

worsen across Louisiana and Mississippi. We have sunshine and

:18:52.:18:57.

showers today, cool than it was yesterday. Yesterday in Lincolnshire

everybody was mis- sold this payment protection insurance. When you look

:22:44.:22:47.

at how many people have claimed, 12 million people have. ?27 billion has

:22:48.:22:54.

been paid out so far. That is megamoney. If you look at how much

:22:55.:22:58.

the banks have set aside for it, it is ?37 billion. This has cost banks

:22:59.:23:04.

an awful lot of money. Management companies have made a fair whack out

:23:05.:23:08.

of this. It is worth remembering that you don't have to use them to

get this money back. There are lots of options online to do it for free.

pit tour. This is the new crossing, it is one of the busiest routes. The

:24:09.:24:15.

theory is that if you can get to this ridge, if the roads around it

:24:16.:24:21.

are clear, you can get on it. It is a very clever bridge with lots of

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

The high cost of car insurance may make it tempting for some people

:40:07.:40:09.

to drive uninsured, but those drivers could be pushing up

:40:10.:40:12.

New figures suggest the number of uninsured drivers may

:40:13.:40:16.

be rising for the first time in more than a decade -

:40:17.:40:19.

that's according to the Motor Insurance Bureau.

:40:20.:40:21.

The end of the road cars. A scrapyard Norfolk. If they are

:40:22.:40:27.

driven without proper insurance, the police have powers to tow them away.

:40:28.:40:32.

Once a car has been seized by police, the driver has a limited

:40:33.:40:36.

amount of time to get insurance but if they do not, this could be the

:40:37.:40:42.

end of the line. Sergeant Chris from Norfolk's police unit is out on

:40:43.:40:48.

patrol. Cameras on his car in a secret location across the county

:40:49.:40:51.

automatically read hundreds of number plates per hour. The system

:40:52.:40:58.

has flagged up a suspect's car. They track the driver to a cul-de-sac in

:40:59.:41:10.

Norwich. They have just done checks and they heard the driver has been

:41:11.:41:16.

driving without proper insurance. In 2016, police forces seized 145,000

:41:17.:41:21.

vehicles through insurance and says -- offences of which approximately

:41:22.:41:26.

58,000 were crushed. That is more than 1000 per week. The camera is

:41:27.:41:30.

used to identify drivers as part of a system called automatic on the

:41:31.:41:37.

plate recognition. It's database is operated by the insurance euro. They

:41:38.:41:42.

compensate victims of uninsured drivers on the half of the industry.

:41:43.:41:47.

The money comes from ?15 which is added to each premium and the number

:41:48.:41:51.

of claims they are seeing is increasing. Back in Norwich, the

:41:52.:41:55.

uninsured car is towed away. The driver will now have to obtain cover

:41:56.:41:59.

and pay a fixed penalty to get it back or his car could end up here.

:42:00.:42:05.

That's what can happen if you don't go pick your car up. For more on

:42:06.:42:11.

this, we are joined by the motoring editor in the insurance comparison

site confuse.com. It has a big impact. As we heard, all drivers

:42:23.:42:27.

have to pay into this pot and so essentially, it's all the drivers

:42:28.:42:30.

who are legally insured were paying the price. If the honest ones who

:42:31.:42:36.

are picking up the tab. An average of about ?1000 to insure a car is

:42:37.:42:41.

really high. It is and what we are seeing with all the research we have

:42:42.:42:47.

done at confuse.com, it is the cost of motoring overall that is going

:42:48.:42:51.

up, not just insurance. The leather reasons why insurance is going up

:42:52.:42:55.

that its motoring generally going up and in many areas, certainly where I

:42:56.:42:59.

live, I haven't got a choice. There is no public transport so I rely on

:43:00.:43:03.

my car to get me and my family around. Just looking at the

punishments for driving uninsured, six points off the licence, a story

to ?20 per day. ?50 -- ?150 collection fee. Your car will be

:43:15.:43:18.

crushed if it is not collected. Is there anything that can put drivers

:43:19.:43:22.

off and stop them from driving uninsured? I think the real question

:43:23.:43:26.

here is what the cost of motoring hit is in general. We all know our

:43:27.:43:31.

cars are going to be crushed and we know that there are fines imposed if

:43:32.:43:34.

we decide to drive uninsured, as well as penalties on your licence.

:43:35.:43:38.

People are prepared to take the risk and I think that it's because the

:43:39.:43:42.

cost of motoring, across the board, is going up so high. I do know the

:43:43.:43:47.

answer, I think the industry as a whole, whether it be fuel prices,

:43:48.:43:51.

maintenance and obviously the car insurance, road tax. All the

:43:52.:43:54.

associated costs is that I think are putting a lot of pressure on the

:43:55.:43:58.

motorist which is why people are taking the chances. Also the risk of

:43:59.:44:01.

having their car crushed is not enough. A few comments, dancers is

:44:02.:44:06.

probably the astronomical cost of car insurance of fuelling the rise.

:44:07.:44:10.

Lee says it doesn't surprise him. The cost of his insurance has gone

:44:11.:44:14.

up 20% and he has switched providers which has made a slight difference

is that some people can't afford it. Bill says surely it's easy to a

:44:39.:44:43.

Nowadays, you have parking sensors, cameras and radars as well as the

:44:44.:44:47.

bodywork cost. We know the cost of repair is going up. This is

:44:48.:44:51.

reflected in car insurance and also with many more people not owning

:44:52.:44:56.

their car outright and perhaps going to an independent repair shop, more

:44:57.:45:01.

and more cars are bought on some kind of lease purchase or hire

:45:02.:45:04.

purchase scheme which requires the car to actually go back to the main

:45:05.:45:08.

dealer to be repaired which has an associated cost. There are a

:45:09.:45:11.

multitude of reasons. It is not simple to say there is one reason

:45:12.:45:16.

why. But car insurance is definitely going up. The research that we have

:45:17.:45:21.

seen is that it is at 18% last quarter. You think the insurers are

:45:22.:45:29.

justified in the increase? The insurers themselves don't have huge

:45:30.:45:32.

reserves so they are not actually making a vast amount of money from

:45:33.:45:37.

people 's car insurance premiums. They are actually paying this out.

:45:38.:45:41.

The other thing to bear in mind is that we have seen two massive

:45:42.:45:45.

changes to the market recently. We have that changes to improve the tax

:45:46.:45:49.

which is a levy put on your premium by the government and for many years

:45:50.:45:55.

that was bumping around 45 or 6% and that is now 12%. That is huge. --4,

:45:56.:46:02.

five or 6%. In June this year, we saw changes to the discount rate

:46:03.:46:12.

which is the rate where you have a serious life injury, their premiums

:46:13.:46:19.

are being affected as well. We know why premiums are changing but

:46:20.:46:25.

unfortunately, it's a sign of the Times. Thank you for your time.

:46:26.:46:30.

Were to do what you think about it. A lot of people are struggling to

:46:31.:46:37.

pay for car insurance. Ypu're watching

Breakfast from BBC News. North Korea has fired a missile over

northern Japan in a move the Japanese Prime Minister has

called an unprecedented threat President Trump has pledged his full

by catastrophic flooding caused A lovely picture. Thank you, it is

:46:56.:47:17.

from one of our Weather Watchers. Lovely day to start in Essex,

:47:18.:47:23.

yesterday, temperatures reached over 28 degrees. The warmest August day

:47:24.:47:31.

in the UK so far this year. Today, we might see 28, but it is more

:47:32.:47:36.

likely to be around Kent. Today's forecast is one of sunshine and

:47:37.:47:42.

showers, for many of us, cooler than yesterday. In the north of the

:47:43.:47:49.

country, breezy with showers. This weather front is moving south,

:47:50.:47:56.

hoping today is more likely to be 20- 21. Ahead of that, one or two

:47:57.:48:01.

showers. In the south-east, dry and bright. Showers from the word go

:48:02.:48:05.

across Scotland, Northern Ireland and the south-east. Where we have

:48:06.:48:12.

our weather front moving south, the odd spot of rain. If you are heading

:48:13.:48:17.

down the coast, with the offshore wind, it will feel warmer than

:48:18.:48:22.

yesterday. Southern areas, generally a murky start. Brightening up nicely

:48:23.:48:30.

across England. For Northern Ireland, hanging on to sunshine and

:48:31.:48:34.

a few showers. Through the course of the day, breezy. Bright spells

:48:35.:48:43.

across most of Scotland. Temperatures getting up to 17- 19.

:48:44.:48:47.

For northern England in the north-east, some sunshine. Then back

:48:48.:48:51.

into our weather front, slipping south. Producing patchy rain and

:48:52.:48:56.

cloud. That continues into the evening and overnight, could be

:48:57.:49:03.

Sunbury at times. In Kent, for example. Another band coming

:49:04.:49:07.

south-west. North of that, clear skies. Breezy, and some showers.

:49:08.:49:13.

Tomorrow, starting with that scenario across northern England and

:49:14.:49:18.

Ireland. Showers peppering western Scotland. Two bands of rain in the

:49:19.:49:26.

south eventually merging. Wind coming across Norfolk and Kent.

:49:27.:49:34.

Today we could hit 28, tomorrow, at 16 or 17. As we had into Thursday, a

:49:35.:49:41.

lot of dry weather around. A peppering of showers in the north. A

:49:42.:49:47.

few in the south-west, the south-east hangs onto the brightest

:49:48.:49:51.

skies. Temperatures way down compared to what we are looking at.

Thank you very much. All this summer on BBC Breakfast

:50:01.:50:02.

we've been talking to some of the UK's most

:50:03.:50:04.

inspirational businesswomen. This morning Steph's talking

:50:05.:50:06.

to a woman who started Anyone who likes to give themselves

:50:07.:50:09.

a bit of a treat might already We're talking about the upmarket

:50:10.:50:13.

wellbeing fragrance brand Neom Organics founded by Nicola Elliott

:50:14.:50:35.

and her business partner Oliver It was started in 2005 when Nicola

:50:36.:50:38.

was working a 60 hour week at a glossy magazine whilst also

:50:39.:50:42.

training as an aromatherapist. She started small -

:50:43.:50:44.

with a range of 5 candles - but the business now has

:50:45.:50:47.

a multi-million pound turnover with 3 stand-alone shops and it's

:50:48.:50:50.

sold in high end department stores like John Lewis and Selfridges

:50:51.:50:53.

in the UK as well as overseas. Nicola Elliott of Neom

:50:54.:50:56.

Organics joins me now. Tell us about why you

:50:57.:50:59.

started the business. You were working for a magazine?

:51:00.:51:06.

Yes, I was a journalist. I was working crazy hours and I decided to

:51:07.:51:10.

do something that would give me a bit more flexibility. You start your

:51:11.:51:13.

own business and you think it is going to be so much easier, of

:51:14.:51:17.

course, it isn't. I work as hard as I did back then. I had a real

:51:18.:51:21.

vision, I think that is why the brand has become as strong as it is.

:51:22.:51:25.

It was always about creating a well-being brand. It was always

:51:26.:51:28.

about inspiring people to lead naturally healthy lives. I did that

:51:29.:51:31.

alongside my journalism job, I trained as a nutritional list and

:51:32.:51:34.

and aromatherapist. We were set up to be very much helping people with

:51:35.:51:40.

sleep, stress levels, mood, boosting energy. How we could do that in a

:51:41.:51:46.

natural way and how we could start that well-being journey. You are a

:51:47.:51:52.

journalist, very busy, training to be and aromatherapist, when did you

:51:53.:51:57.

take that step? What did you do? I went down to a four-day week, which

:51:58.:52:02.

I would always advocate. It gives you the opportunity to test the

:52:03.:52:06.

market. You don't have to do a full job from one to the other. I created

:52:07.:52:11.

blends, tested them on friends, whether it would help people sleep

:52:12.:52:21.

and so on. Once I got a green light, I took the leap. Try and think of

:52:22.:52:26.

places and ways that you can test it out where you can be a bit more

:52:27.:52:32.

confident. Was at a big investment for you? No, I had sold my car and

:52:33.:52:38.

my business partner had some savings. We got together about

:52:39.:52:44.

?10,000. It was everything we had. We put it into stock. If you have a

:52:45.:52:49.

stock -based business, but is not too bad, we always thought, we've

:52:50.:52:54.

got these candles, we can sell them somewhere if we need to. It is such

:52:55.:52:59.

a big and competitive market, you are fighting with massive brands.

:53:00.:53:04.

How do you make yourself different? How do you do that? You have to have

:53:05.:53:09.

a point of difference. It has to be authentic. I think if we had just

:53:10.:53:16.

created are foils that not nice or candles in a lovely box, that is

:53:17.:53:21.

subjective. I think you've got to have that story. We were really

:53:22.:53:24.

passionate about the well-being story. We were really passionate

:53:25.:53:29.

about testing the blends to see whether they worked. There is a

:53:30.:53:35.

whole lot of smelly candles and bath oils, but how many of them can help

:53:36.:53:42.

you sleep? Boost your energy? That had to be key to the brand, the

:53:43.:53:50.

story and the authenticity. The rest of it is the icing on the cake. The

:53:51.:53:59.

business has grown, what's next? We are on a stall roll at the moment,

:54:00.:54:04.

we have one in Leeds and one in Kings road. We are hoping to open

:54:05.:54:11.

another one around Christmas. The UK is still a big area for us. We will

:54:12.:54:18.

be rolling out our retail. You can come and experience it. That is the

:54:19.:54:23.

future of retail, where you can experience the brand, get involved.

:54:24.:54:29.

You are not just picking up products, we did a discovery test

:54:30.:54:33.

where you can come in and we will find out you've got well-being

:54:34.:54:41.

needs. We figure out the underlying causes. That is key to the future. A

:54:42.:54:50.

product like yours is a treat, not a necessity. How does the business

:54:51.:54:56.

world feel to you? We are in times where people are on low wages and

:54:57.:55:01.

have not seen a pay rise. How does it feel for you? I feel that

:55:02.:55:10.

well-being, right now, when we are in these kind of times, it has to be

:55:11.:55:16.

a necessity. If you can kickstart that journey, we found our

:55:17.:55:25.

business... The lipstick effect, you purchase things to make yourself

:55:26.:55:30.

feel good. You don't need to spend a huge amount to kickstart your

:55:31.:55:36.

well-being journey. People come in and they might prioritise 15 minutes

:55:37.:55:44.

in their bars. They may not be able to go to a spa, but there will

:55:45.:55:52.

maximise that time -- bath. We need to be making well-being a priority

:55:53.:55:58.

and not a luxury. Thank you. I have really enjoyed all the

of uninsured drivers, say there was an increase of 10%

advise yet, but I will be on the phone, Frankie, give me all the tips

you can. You're watching

:11:11.:11:13.

Breakfast from BBC News. North Korea has fired a missile over

:11:14.:11:20.

northern Japan in a move the Japanese Prime Minister has

:11:21.:11:25.

called an "unprecedented" Let's get some more reaction. Thank

:11:26.:11:42.

you for your time on this, Daniel. We know North Korea has said it has

:11:43.:11:47.

fired rockets over Japan before, what is new about these developments

:11:48.:11:53.

over the weekend? North Korea is increasing its capability. They have

:11:54.:11:58.

desired to have nuclear weapons for a long time and delivery systems to

:11:59.:12:03.

strike the United States. So they have been conducting a lot of flight

:12:04.:12:07.

tests recently and increasing the range. This is a new threat the

:12:08.:12:12.

international community is going to have to deal with. Is this a threat

:12:13.:12:18.

to Japan or is this a message to not only Japan, but the rest of the

:12:19.:12:23.

world as well? The first thing we have to think about when we look at

:12:24.:12:27.

these increasing capabilities is North Korea's motivations, what are

:12:28.:12:33.

they trying to achieve? We need to connect their capabilities with

:12:34.:12:38.

their political objectives. North Korea is dissatisfied with several

:12:39.:12:43.

things. First, being the division of the peninsula, they would like to

:12:44.:12:48.

unify the peninsular on its terms. They are dissatisfied with the UN

:12:49.:12:53.

Security Council sanctions. They would like those sanctions lifted

:12:54.:12:57.

and they are dissatisfied with the security architecture in East Asia,

:12:58.:13:02.

which includes bilateral security alliances with the US, Japan,

:13:03.:13:09.

Australia and they would like to see that security architecture

:13:10.:13:14.

dismantled. They will try to use their capabilities for coercive

:13:15.:13:18.

purposes to achieve those political objectives. In terms of pressure the

:13:19.:13:25.

world can exert, what is the best possible outcome for trying to scale

:13:26.:13:29.

back this increased military might we are seeing from North Korea? The

:13:30.:13:38.

international community should be united and cooperate in raising the

:13:39.:13:43.

costs to North Korea. Secondly, the signal should be very clear, the

:13:44.:13:51.

international community's resolve that if North Korea uses these

:13:52.:13:55.

capabilities, they will not achieve their political objectives. That

:13:56.:13:59.

includes a number of things, including alliances, military

:14:00.:14:06.

training, extended deterrence, deterrence by denial, including

:14:07.:14:08.

missile defence systems, economic sanctions. There is a whole tool box

:14:09.:14:14.

of instruments the international community will have two years.

:14:15.:14:18.

President Trump has talked about military action at some stage, is

:14:19.:14:23.

there anything short of that that would make a difference in North

:14:24.:14:30.

Korea? That is an open-ended question, if you are asking about

:14:31.:14:34.

North Korea abandoning its nuclear weapons and delivery systems, I

:14:35.:14:38.

would argue that would constitute revolutionary change in North Korea.

:14:39.:14:44.

It would be a complete reversal and abandonment of their identity, their

:14:45.:14:48.

ideology and their doctrine. Without some fundamental change in North

:14:49.:14:51.

Korea, they are not going to do that. What we have to think about is

:14:52.:14:57.

what the response should be and under what conditions. People talk

:14:58.:15:03.

about a military option, but they stop the discussion there. We have

:15:04.:15:07.

to talk about what conditions and to achieve water. Basically we get back

:15:08.:15:11.

to deterrence. If North Korea were ever to use these weapons or try to

:15:12.:15:17.

use force or coercion against its neighbours, then the international

:15:18.:15:21.

community should be unified in its resolve to respond accordingly.

:15:22.:15:27.

Thank you very much for your time. We are getting reaction from the

:15:28.:15:30.

Japanese embassy here in the UK later on.

:15:31.:15:34.

Here's Carol with a look at this morning's weather.

:15:35.:15:39.

A lovely day for so many people. It certainly was. We have a fine start

:15:40.:15:53.

to the day across parts of the UK. Another beautiful photo from Essex,

:15:54.:15:58.

this lovely, blue sky. It is not like it everywhere. There is quite a

:15:59.:16:05.

bit of cloud around, producing some murky conditions and some patchy

:16:06.:16:10.

rain here and there. It is courtesy of this weather front slowly

:16:11.:16:17.

slipping southwards. There is sunshine and showers. Here is the

:16:18.:16:27.

weather front through this course of the morning. Slowly moving south.

:16:28.:16:35.

Sunshine and showers and breezy for Scotland and Northern Ireland. Kent

:16:36.:16:48.

could hit 28 Celsius. The sun will come out after a murky start. As we

:16:49.:16:55.

head into northern England, we are looking at some sunshine. Sunshine

:16:56.:17:03.

and showers although they will be fairly few and far between. They

:17:04.:17:08.

will be prolific in Scotland but they are showers so not everyone

:17:09.:17:15.

will catch one in between. Moving down into Yorkshire after a cloudy

:17:16.:17:21.

start, it will brighten up in the afternoon. Here goes the weather

:17:22.:17:30.

front, rejuvenating. We could see thunderstorms. Then we have another

:17:31.:17:34.

system coming in from the south-west. There will still be a

:17:35.:17:42.

peppering of showers. It will be a cool night in the countryside. There

:17:43.:17:53.

will be some showers and they will be breezy and eventually the twain

:17:54.:17:59.

shall meet. You will notice the huge difference in temperatures tomorrow.

:18:00.:18:03.

Where we have had 27 or 28 we're looking at 16 or 17. The

:18:04.:18:08.

temperatures tomorrow will be very similar to what we're looking at

:18:09.:18:13.

today. Thursday will have a lot of dry weather around. There will be

:18:14.:18:19.

light breezes and the temperatures will be 13 - 20. Did you call it a

:18:20.:18:41.

dizzy cocktail earlier? Yes. Thank you very much. PPI, we are talking

:18:42.:18:54.

about. We've been talking about it for years. I feel like I've been

:18:55.:19:03.

talking about it forever. I would struggle to find anyone who has not

:19:04.:19:08.

had one of those annoying calls. A lot of people have claimed back

:19:09.:19:11.

money but interestingly, more than half have been mis-sold that have

:19:12.:19:15.

not claimed that back. The figures were something like 50 million

:19:16.:19:26.

policies sold. 64 million of them were salt. If you look now at the

:19:27.:19:37.

number of people who have claimed, ?27 billion has been paid out of

:19:38.:19:41.

compensation. It is a staggering amount of money. It has caused

:19:42.:19:49.

problems for the banks. They've set aside ?30 billion to deal with

:19:50.:19:54.

compensation. There is a new campaign to encourage more people to

:19:55.:20:00.

claim. You don't have to. But they are saying there are still people

:20:01.:20:05.

out there who are owed compensation. In two years you will not be able to

:20:06.:20:08.

do that. That's why they're running this campaign. We've had loads of

:20:09.:20:16.

e-mails from people about this as well saying, I had PPI on my first

:20:17.:20:24.

mortgage. I was young and single, how do I know I was mis-sold at?

:20:25.:20:30.

That is interesting, you can go online, put in your details and the

:20:31.:20:35.

banks will do their work for you. But there are also claims management

:20:36.:20:40.

organisations that will do it for you. There are various messages, one

:20:41.:20:46.

said they got their money back really quickly, another said they

:20:47.:20:50.

are waiting. There are lots of different experiences. Still worth

:20:51.:20:54.

having a go. Until the door closes. Thank you.

:20:55.:20:57.

The newest bridge across the Firth of Forth was lit up last night

:20:58.:21:00.

to mark the symbolic handover of the project from the constructors

:21:01.:21:03.

Building on the Queensferry Crossing,

:21:04.:21:05.

which links Edinburgh and Fife, started in 2011 and now the billion

:21:06.:21:08.

pound bridge is almost ready to open to traffic.

:21:09.:21:12.

Our Scotland Correspondent Lorna Gordon is there for us this morning.

:21:13.:21:17.

It doesn't look busy at the moment because it is not open yet. Not open

:21:18.:21:25.

quite yet but tomorrow it will be busy with commuters, lorries taking

:21:26.:21:31.

the goods throughout Scotland. At the moment there is some last-minute

:21:32.:21:36.

work going on but this is quite a lovely bridge, it is the tallest

:21:37.:21:45.

bridge in the UK and those fans you can see behind me, they shimmer in

:21:46.:21:49.

the late, they are quite special and last night there was a very special

:21:50.:21:52.

display to commemorate this official handing over from the bridge from

:21:53.:21:56.

the workforce to the people of Scotland. Lighting up Scotland's

:21:57.:22:06.

latest bridge. The Queensferry Crossing in the spotlight before

:22:07.:22:08.

opening two drivers for the first time. In its own right it is a feat

:22:09.:22:15.

of design, engineering and construction, absolutely amazing. It

:22:16.:22:20.

is, in every sense, an amazing achievement. The scale of this

:22:21.:22:25.

construction is impressive. It is the longest bridge of its kind in

:22:26.:22:31.

the world. It is a chance for some of the many thousands who worked on

:22:32.:22:34.

it to celebrate the completion. What a night? Fantastic. It is the end of

:22:35.:22:42.

a long journey but it has been wonderful. Stressful but the most

:22:43.:22:45.

rewarding job I've ever been on and I've been on many bridges. S these

:22:46.:22:51.

guys have put a lot of work in. There will be grandchildren who say,

:22:52.:22:57.

my grand dad built that. There are three bridges across this stretch of

:22:58.:23:02.

the fourth. For some, the story of these crossings is part of their

:23:03.:23:12.

families history. Migrate grandad worked on the Forth rail Bridge. My

:23:13.:23:15.

grandad worked on the Forth Road Bridge and I worked on the

:23:16.:23:22.

Queensferry Crossing. Three bridges, three centuries, all special, which

:23:23.:23:26.

is your favourite? Definitely the Queensferry Crossing because it

:23:27.:23:31.

feels most like my bridge. Are you chuffed? After seeing it come

:23:32.:23:37.

together I feel a little bit proud to have been working on the bridge.

:23:38.:23:41.

Was travelling this busy route have contented with plenty of roadworks.

:23:42.:23:48.

What can they expect tomorrow? There have been a lot of cones out there

:23:49.:23:53.

for a long time. There will be a 40 mph limit. I'm sure people will want

:23:54.:23:57.

to see what the bridge looks like. We would ask people to drive

:23:58.:24:01.

carefully and keep their eye on the road. For now it is all about

:24:02.:24:06.

admiring the view and then enjoy the journey across this latest bridge

:24:07.:24:14.

over the Forth. There will be some toing and froing over the next week.

:24:15.:24:20.

It opens tomorrow morning, it stays open for a couple of days, and then

:24:21.:24:26.

it shuts again to allow pedestrians to walk across the bridge. They

:24:27.:24:31.

would not normally be able to do that, but there has been a public

:24:32.:24:35.

ballot and tens of thousands of people will be lucky enough to get

:24:36.:24:38.

that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk across. What makes it even

:24:39.:24:47.

more special is the fact that this is three bridges from three

:24:48.:24:52.

centuries spanning this location. It is a place which many people have

:24:53.:24:58.

identified with. They've travelled across the rail bridge and the Road

:24:59.:25:05.

Bridge and now they will get the chance to travel across the

:25:06.:25:17.

Queensferry Crossing. Thank you very much indeed. Some people have been

:25:18.:25:22.

in this ballot to walk. Somebody sent me a copy of the beautiful

:25:23.:25:27.

invitation with a picture of the bridge.

:25:28.:25:32.

We have some fantastic guests coming up for you. We have John Culshaw. He

:25:33.:25:43.

will do one of his most requested impressions. You can probably guess

:25:44.:25:51.

who that is at the moment. Also, hopefully an impression of someone

:25:52.:25:56.

who is here. There is also a programme we will talk about, I knew

:25:57.:26:04.

Horizon programme, and it asks us, are psychopaths born or made? One of

:26:05.:26:13.

the main things was they were in conversation with Ian Brady,

:26:14.:26:17.

obviously very controversial. We will talk about the rights and

:26:18.:26:20.

wrongs of that. And Jamie Lawson will be on the silver. He was signed

:26:21.:26:28.

by Ed Sheeran and the last time they were both here together. Two years

:26:29.:26:38.

ago. Before they spoke to us, his single was outside number ten. By

:26:39.:26:41.

the time they got back to the station it was number one. The power

:26:42.:26:47.

of BBC Breakfast. I wonder if we will have the same effect today. We

:26:48.:26:51.

will be talking about the programme about psychopaths. We will have the

:26:52.:26:56.

national headlines in a couple of minutes after whatever is happening

:26:57.:26:57.

wherever you are. Hello, this is Breakfast,

:26:58.:30:19.

with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker. Let's get you up to date with the

:30:20.:30:33.

latest headlines at 8:30am. The United Nations Security Council

:30:34.:30:37.

is to hold an emergency meeting this afternoon after North Korea fired

:30:38.:30:40.

a ballistic missile The missile, which fell

:30:41.:30:41.

into the sea, triggered loudspeaker alerts warning people on the island

:30:42.:30:45.

of Hokkaido to take cover. Japan's Prime Minister said

:30:46.:30:47.

the launch represented a serious The former Nato Commander,

:30:48.:30:50.

Rear Admiral Chris Parry, told us that the international

:30:51.:30:53.

community needed to show I think there has to be an

:30:54.:31:08.

absolutely unanimous votes today to say to North Korea, enough is

:31:09.:31:12.

enough. You are not just upsetting the Americans and its allies, you

:31:13.:31:16.

are upsetting the rest of the world. You have the capability to strike

:31:17.:31:20.

over a wide region, we know that, we also need to come to a situation

:31:21.:31:24.

where you are talking to us rather than waving your fist. Be in no

:31:25.:31:32.

doubt, at some stage the world's two superpowers, China and the United

:31:33.:31:34.

States, will come together and force you to do so.

:31:35.:31:35.

We're joined now from our London newsroom by Shinichi Iida,

:31:36.:31:38.

the Minister for Public Diplomacy at the Japanese Embassy in the UK.

:31:39.:31:45.

Good morning, thank you very much for joining us. Can you tell us what

:31:46.:31:49.

you know about what happened overnight?

:31:50.:31:55.

North Korea, as you know, launched a ballistic missile which flew over

:31:56.:31:59.

the Japanese archipelago and landed at the Western Pacific, hundreds of

:32:00.:32:05.

miles east of the Japanese territory, which is causing a

:32:06.:32:10.

massive concern amongst Japanese people and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

:32:11.:32:13.

declared that the government is taking every possible measure to

:32:14.:32:16.

ensure the safety of the Japanese people.

:32:17.:32:19.

He also immediately talked with President Trump of the United States

:32:20.:32:24.

over the phone, they agreed that they would even more closely

:32:25.:32:27.

coordinate with one another and also to convene the emergency session of

:32:28.:32:34.

the United Nations Security Council in order to put even greater

:32:35.:32:38.

pressure on North Korea so it would come to its senses.

:32:39.:32:43.

Thank you so much. Were Japanese citizens, do you think, at any point

:32:44.:32:47.

in danger? Japanese people are very concerned.

:32:48.:32:54.

There is no question about it. As Prime Minister Abe said, North Korea

:32:55.:32:59.

poses an unprecedented threat to Japan and the Japanese people. It is

:33:00.:33:07.

not causing a threat only to Japan that also to the rest of the world.

:33:08.:33:13.

It is an international threat that North Korea poses. In that regard I

:33:14.:33:17.

think it is critically important for the international community to

:33:18.:33:24.

co-operate closely together in order to tackle this crisis. In that

:33:25.:33:29.

regard I think it is quite pertinent that Prime Minister Theresa May is

:33:30.:33:33.

visiting Japan as an official guest of Japan, and she is going to have

:33:34.:33:37.

extensive discussions with Prime Minister Abe he and I am sure that

:33:38.:33:42.

on top of the agenda list will be the North Korean crisis. We expect a

:33:43.:33:47.

great deal of the United Kingdom as well, because the UK is a permanent

:33:48.:33:51.

member of the UN Security Council and it has the embassy in Pyongyang,

:33:52.:33:56.

which Japan does not. You say do expect a great deal from the UK,

:33:57.:34:03.

what sort of thing do you expect? UK has its own communication

:34:04.:34:05.

channels with China and Russia and as I mentioned to Pyongyang as well.

:34:06.:34:13.

Also UK is one of the greatest and closest allies of the United States.

:34:14.:34:18.

UK is a very important strategic partner for Japan because Japan and

:34:19.:34:24.

the UK share such fundamental values like the rule of law, respect the

:34:25.:34:29.

human rights and the market economy. In many regards, Japan and the UK

:34:30.:34:33.

are very key players, whatever the joke -- global issue might be, to

:34:34.:34:39.

work closely. One other question. Warnings were issued and I know

:34:40.:34:43.

Japanese citizens practice for those kind of things, why did you not

:34:44.:34:47.

shoot the missile down? The Japanese government has been

:34:48.:34:50.

clear that it will take every possible measure to ensure the

:34:51.:34:57.

safety of the Japanese people. For the specific reason... And also I

:34:58.:35:03.

want to add that the Japanese have defence forces for that purpose, it

:35:04.:35:06.

has been deploying its missile defence mechanism. The specific

:35:07.:35:12.

reason why they did not shoot down the missile, the Frank answer is I

:35:13.:35:17.

don't know. The Prime Minister's Chief Cabinet secretary referred to

:35:18.:35:20.

that in his press conference that the government has taken every

:35:21.:35:26.

element into consideration for that. I know for a fact that the North

:35:27.:35:30.

Korean missile this time around collapsed into three pieces.

:35:31.:35:35.

Shinichi Iida, thank you very much for your time Breakfast. He is the

:35:36.:35:39.

Minister for Public diplomacy at the Japanese embassy here. You are very

:35:40.:35:40.

welcome. The catastrophic flooding in Texas

:35:41.:35:42.

is expected to get much worse - with officials warning they expect

:35:43.:35:45.

nearly half a million With waters still rising,

:35:46.:35:47.

helicopters and hundreds of specialist vehicles have been

:35:48.:35:49.

deployed in the rescue effort. An emergency has also been declared

:35:50.:35:52.

in neighbouring Louisiana, Brexit negotiations are continuing

:35:53.:35:54.

in Brussels after the EU told the UK it needed to get serious

:35:55.:35:59.

about the withdrawal talks. The EU's chief negotiator

:36:00.:36:03.

Michel Barnier has expressed concern about the lack of progress made

:36:04.:36:06.

so far and accused Britain of ambiguity on key issues

:36:07.:36:09.

like its exit bill. The UK Brexit Secretary David Davis

:36:10.:36:14.

said both sides had to show The number of uninsured drivers

:36:15.:36:16.

on British roads may be increasing for the first time in more

:36:17.:36:23.

than a decade, according to new data The Motor Insurance Bureau,

:36:24.:36:26.

which processes claims by victims of uninsured drivers,

:36:27.:36:30.

say there was an increase of 10% That rise could suggest

:36:31.:36:33.

that there are more uninsured people If you haven't seen this, you really

:36:34.:36:39.

want to watch it! A dancing policeman has become

:36:40.:36:51.

the star of this year's Notting Hill Carnival,

:36:52.:36:53.

after video of him showing off his PC Daniel Graham kept crowds

:36:54.:36:56.

entertained with his body popping. He clearly knows what he is doing!

:36:57.:36:59.

And a side moonwalk! He's no stranger to taking

:37:00.:37:06.

centre-stage, though - he was also a contestant on last

:37:07.:37:08.

year's Britain's Got Talent. He has got talent! And quite clearly

:37:09.:37:17.

flaunting it, much to the delight of the crowd at Notting Hill Carnival,

:37:18.:37:20.

it went down very well, high-fives all over the place.

:37:21.:37:25.

Thank you to whoever sent me the link to Britain's Got Talent with

:37:26.:37:26.

him on. Coming up here on Breakfast

:37:27.:37:28.

this morning... Exploring the psychopathic mind -

:37:29.:37:30.

using new letters written by murderer Ian Brady,

:37:31.:37:32.

a new documentary looks at whether psychopaths

:37:33.:37:34.

are the product of nature There were good storylines here, it

:37:35.:37:36.

was... It was beautiful. The BBC's Spanish soap Eldorado may

:37:37.:37:46.

have lasted only a year, but surprisingly the set

:37:47.:37:49.

is still standing a quarter of a century later -

:37:50.:37:51.

and we'll be taking a look around. And singer Jamie Lawson's life has

:37:52.:37:54.

been a series of happy accidents - from the way he met his wife

:37:55.:37:57.

to working with his He's here to tell us how it's

:37:58.:38:00.

all inspired his new album. But first let's get

:38:01.:38:06.

the sport with Sally. Hello. Good morning. We had such

:38:07.:38:18.

high hopes for Jo Konta at the US Open, playing on her favourite

:38:19.:38:22.

surface, a great performance for Wimbledon. And what happens when we

:38:23.:38:26.

talk about her in those terms? It goes quite badly wrong. Good

:38:27.:38:27.

morning. Its been a dramatic opening

:38:28.:38:28.

day at the US Open - Britain's Johanna Konta suffered

:38:29.:38:30.

a shock first round defeat against The world number seven was among

:38:31.:38:33.

the favourites for the title and could have ended the tournament

:38:34.:38:37.

as world number one. Konta won the first set,

:38:38.:38:39.

but the world number 78 fought back to leave Konta still looking

:38:40.:38:44.

for that elusive first It would be quite obnoxious of me

:38:45.:38:46.

to come in here expecting that I have a right to be

:38:47.:38:50.

in the second round. I am very much aware that

:38:51.:38:54.

to get that opportunity So, me losing in the first

:38:55.:38:59.

round is not ideal, Anybody coming here wants to be

:39:00.:39:02.

in for as long as possible. Unfortunately, that

:39:03.:39:07.

is how sport goes. And there was a successful return

:39:08.:39:13.

to Grand Slam tennis for Maria Sharapova -

:39:14.:39:15.

she beat world number two Sharapova needed a wild card

:39:16.:39:17.

to enter the main draw But Heather Watson's poor run

:39:18.:39:25.

at Flushing Meadows continues. She was knocked out by Alize Cornet

:39:26.:39:28.

you always look how it will go. Hopefully it will be overcast for

the seamers. On the sun is out it is nice to but, when it is overcast it

is not as easy, the wicked feel softer. That helps the spinners.

:40:41.:40:44.

Hopefully I can get a good ball tomorrow.

:40:45.:40:46.

With the football transfer window closing in two days' time, clubs

:40:47.:40:48.

And it appears that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set

:40:49.:40:51.

After refusing to commit his future at the Emirates, he has just a year

:40:52.:41:08.

on his contract. They could lose him for nothing next summer. I am

:41:09.:41:13.

delighted that we have an exclusive response from the Arsenal manager

:41:14.:41:23.

Arsene Wenger. IS Arsene Wenger: I make very clever post-match

:41:24.:41:25.

exclusives while looking a little puzzled. Jon Culshaw, lovely to see

:41:26.:41:34.

you! Thank you very much for that. Here's a good character at the

:41:35.:41:42.

moment! Who do you choose to pick on? I stumbled across Arsene Wenger

:41:43.:41:47.

by accident, in a sense. If you start off with Arsene Wenger and

:41:48.:41:51.

take away the French lilt and make it slightly Scottish, the next voice

:41:52.:41:55.

along a sort of Andy Murray. It was through doing Andy Murray that I

:41:56.:41:59.

discovered Arsene Wenger. That is very good. Only a subtle change. A

:42:00.:42:05.

little pitch shift. We call the phenomena voice neighbours. The

:42:06.:42:09.

mannerisms change completely, that is a huge part? The little catch in

:42:10.:42:19.

the voice is there with the two of them.

:42:20.:42:21.

Are there some people who are particularly obvious as candidates

:42:22.:42:24.

for you to take on? I think so. I remember watching... AS SIMON

:42:25.:42:30.

COWELL: Simon Cowell the first time. AS RICKY GERVAIS: Rudiger base is a

:42:31.:42:47.

little bit more awkward. How many characters can you do? In Dead

:42:48.:42:54.

Ringers there may be 60 characters. But if you add them all up over the

:42:55.:42:58.

years, it probably runs into the hundreds if you have counted every

:42:59.:43:02.

single Worzel Domej, whoever it might be, the different characters.

:43:03.:43:07.

You mentioned dead ringers, and your new show is unscripted, and

:43:08.:43:13.

rehearsed? You had to change things all the time? Certain characters

:43:14.:43:19.

fall by the wayside. A few years ago, Tony Blair, George W Bush, how

:43:20.:43:23.

do you like me now?! But they pass by and you are left with the newer

:43:24.:43:33.

characters. AS BORIS JOHNSON: Boris Johnson is a very popular character

:43:34.:43:43.

right now... AS DONALD TRUMP: and Donald Trump is very happy...

:43:44.:43:51.

Popular right now. It is as though you are having a game of darts but

:43:52.:43:54.

you are not trying very hard. The answer operated by a little stick on

:43:55.:44:01.

the elbow like Kermit the frog. Even if people have the sound turned

:44:02.:44:04.

down, the mannerisms are so recognisable and you know it is

:44:05.:44:08.

Donald Trump. You can post your lips like a tropical fish that wants to

:44:09.:44:12.

be fed... AS DONALD TRUMP: and simply go like that. At the start of

:44:13.:44:18.

each show you ring up a local pizza delivery firm and someone chooses a

:44:19.:44:23.

voice for you to order a pizza advice? This is in the live show,

:44:24.:44:27.

The Great British Take Off. Just before the end of the first act, in

:44:28.:44:31.

a character of the audience's choosing, we will phone the local

:44:32.:44:34.

pizza place and have them delivered to the stage, at the end of the show

:44:35.:44:39.

the audience help themselves, and off they go. It is a very

:44:40.:44:48.

spontaneous moment in the show. AS DAVID ATTENBOROUGH: if you order

:44:49.:44:53.

them as David Attenborough they get delivered very quickly. If you order

:44:54.:44:57.

them as Piers Morgan or Alan Sugar the phone is put down.

:44:58.:45:01.

I love unscripted shows, doesn't make it even more fun for you? Yes,

:45:02.:45:08.

never the same twice. We are led by the audience, they suggest the

:45:09.:45:11.

characters, it determines the anecdotes. It is lovely when it is

:45:12.:45:15.

never the same twice and you can reflect the latest topical news. You

:45:16.:45:18.

can speak about the news that might have happened that day. Over the

:45:19.:45:23.

years, are there still some people that you feel you have not quite

:45:24.:45:28.

got? What makes it more difficult to grab the persona?

:45:29.:45:34.

David Cameron always comes to mind, he was a generic posh, perhaps the

:45:35.:45:44.

odd repeated hand gesture. Very tidy PR, very polished, not many

:45:45.:45:47.

characteristics to latch onto. He would be one of those. Like a wax

:45:48.:45:53.

candle in a gift shop is how I described David Cameron. You can do

:45:54.:45:57.

an accurate impression that people would not care, that was the sense

:45:58.:46:02.

with him. Now there are many more characters, one of my favourite

:46:03.:46:06.

political characters is Michael Gove, take Ronnie Corbett and take

:46:07.:46:10.

away the love ability and charm and make him slightly Machiavellian and

:46:11.:46:16.

mischievous. You have my full support and far be it from me to say

:46:17.:46:26.

anything, far be it from me to be mischievous or top of turn. Do you

:46:27.:46:29.

watch people when you are trying to nail an impression, do you nail the

:46:30.:46:38.

mannerisms over and over again? Yeah, it is easier, you can download

:46:39.:46:44.

the clips. Back in the day it would be lots of tapes in the post and now

:46:45.:46:48.

you can watch it over and over again and you can see the pattern is, the

:46:49.:46:53.

obvious things which make people recognisable. Is it still that

:46:54.:46:58.

situation where some people, if you mercilessly take the Mickey out of

:46:59.:47:02.

them they will get annoyed but it is also a sign they are famous enough

:47:03.:47:07.

for you to be impersonating them so they enjoy it? Most people are quite

:47:08.:47:12.

relieved, it shows they are on the radar and have a character which can

:47:13.:47:17.

be moulded, you can portrayed. I think most people, they say they

:47:18.:47:23.

quite like it anyway. We were mentioned the other day on dead

:47:24.:47:27.

ringers and it made me laugh so I can see that. Debra Stephenson and

:47:28.:47:41.

Jan ravens do a wonderful Stef, the way you don't have taking any

:47:42.:47:51.

nonsense in those interviews. The lovely directness, they do it

:47:52.:47:55.

beautifully. Looking forward to seeing that, thank you.

:47:56.:47:57.

Jon's tour is called The Great British Take Off,

:47:58.:47:59.

The Queensferry Crossing will be opening up tomorrow. We are doing

:48:00.:48:21.

the weather next. Were you going to leave her out?

:48:22.:48:27.

I was not intentionally trying to get rid of you from this part of the

:48:28.:48:33.

programme! Nice recovery by the skin of your

:48:34.:48:35.

teeth. This is a picture from a weather

:48:36.:48:45.

watcher in Essex, lovely blue skies, temperatures getting up now, but a

:48:46.:48:48.

different scenario in Yorkshire, a bit more cloud and some of it

:48:49.:48:53.

further south is producing some rain. Courtesy of this weather front

:48:54.:49:00.

which is working south eastwards, breezy conditions, looking at a

:49:01.:49:06.

mixture of bright spells, sunshine and showers, brightening up across

:49:07.:49:11.

Northern England. Again as this weather front goes south, we will

:49:12.:49:16.

brighten up in Wales and South West England but it will cloud over

:49:17.:49:20.

through much of the South West Midlands. Today parts of Kent could

:49:21.:49:29.

reach 28 Celsius. Dry weather across southern counties, bits of pieces

:49:30.:49:34.

and clouds, Wales brightening up with sunshine, the West Midlands

:49:35.:49:37.

getting cloudy and you can see for Northern England it's getting quite

:49:38.:49:42.

bright. The Isle of Man also seeing sunshine, sunshine and showers in

:49:43.:49:49.

Northern Ireland, and there is a peppering of showers across Scotland

:49:50.:49:55.

but there will be more dry weather than wet weather and looking at

:49:56.:49:59.

bright sunny skies in between. For north-east England behind the

:50:00.:50:02.

weather front as the Clyde pulls away the sun will come out. That is

:50:03.:50:06.

the weather front moving south, getting into the South East through

the course of tonight, rejuvenating across Dover and the cutesy heavy

showers, possibly thundery and a new band of rain coming across

:50:17.:50:19.

south-west England, Wales and the Midlands. Away from that clear

:50:20.:50:26.

skies, chilly start to the day and tomorrow still breezy with sunshine

:50:27.:50:30.

and showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, the

:50:31.:50:36.

rain in the South eventually merging, much later in the south

:50:37.:50:40.

tomorrow than today which includes the Channel Islands and the

:50:41.:50:43.

temperatures will be down on today as well. But in the north looking at

:50:44.:50:47.

temperatures similar values to what we are likely to have this

:50:48.:50:51.

afternoon. As we move into Thursday still a lot of dry weather where we

:50:52.:50:57.

have a clear skies by night, it will be in the start. Showers from the

:50:58.:51:00.

West as we go through the course of the day and temperatures 13 to a

:51:01.:51:03.

high of 20. Thank you very much, my favourite

:51:04.:51:13.

part of the programme as ever! I believe that!

:51:14.:51:19.

It genuinely is, I am crushed you don't believe me.

:51:20.:51:23.

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

:51:24.:51:25.

carpet event last night to mark the show's first launch since

:51:26.:51:28.

Judge Bruno Tonioli paid tribute to the show's former host on a night

:51:29.:51:32.

when the sequins and sparkles were out in force.

:51:33.:51:35.

Our entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba mingled with the stars

:51:36.:51:37.

Glitterballs and glamour, sequins and sparkles.

:51:38.:51:47.

This year's new celebrities together for Strictly.

:51:48.:51:52.

They have been busy rehearsing for their launch show,

:51:53.:51:54.

the first to be broadcast since the death

:51:55.:51:56.

There will of course be a special tribute.

:51:57.:51:59.

He is part of the show, our lives, the country.

:52:00.:52:07.

As in previous series, the programme will be aiming

:52:08.:52:14.

to deliver entertainment, and perhaps even the odd surprise.

:52:15.:52:18.

Richard, we saw you come down the red carpet.

:52:19.:52:20.

I don't know if they will be good for anyone.

:52:21.:52:28.

But I am releasing them as they are bubbling like a volcano

:52:29.:52:31.

How will you enjoy it as a contestant?

:52:32.:52:44.

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

:52:45.:52:48.

She is so excited about me doing this.

:52:49.:52:53.

I have not got any advice yet but I will definitely be

:52:54.:53:00.

You are the first contestant to be in the show with

:53:01.:53:04.

How do you feel about being a trailblazer?

:53:05.:53:07.

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

:53:08.:53:11.

The country is becoming more inclusive.

:53:12.:53:14.

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

:53:15.:53:18.

Shirley Ballas taking over from Len Goodman.

:53:19.:53:21.

I have a good amount of experience around me.

:53:22.:53:32.

I don't feel any at the moment, but we will see on the night.

:53:33.:53:36.

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

:53:37.:53:39.

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

:53:40.:53:44.

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

:53:45.:53:46.

I am sure we will be talking about that a great deal, it starts in four

:53:47.:54:01.

or five weeks and then builds up beautifully. Thank you for joining

:54:02.:54:04.

us this morning. Psychopathy is a mental health

:54:05.:54:06.

condition which we often associate with extreme violence

:54:07.:54:08.

and unthinkable crimes - but are some people born to be

:54:09.:54:10.

psychopaths, or are they made That's one of the questions

:54:11.:54:13.

explored in BBC Horizon's The programme is presented

:54:14.:54:16.

by the psychologist Uta Frith and the series editor

:54:17.:54:21.

is Steve Crabtree, who we'll be First let's take a look

:54:22.:54:25.

at a clip from the programme. Remarkably, children can read

:54:26.:54:35.

other people's emotions from the first few months of life,

:54:36.:54:42.

and it's this ability to read emotions that helps them to moderate

:54:43.:54:45.

their behaviour towards others. But the professor noticed that

:54:46.:54:49.

children classified by psychologists as callous and unemotional did not

:54:50.:54:52.

do so well on the test. She believes it's because these

:54:53.:54:59.

callous and unemotional children don't feel certain emotions

:55:00.:55:03.

themselves - such as fear - that they struggle to recognise

:55:04.:55:06.

them in other people. And it's a trait that

:55:07.:55:11.

continues into adulthood. We're joined now by the psychologist

:55:12.:55:16.

Uta Frith and Horizon's series It's a fascinating debate, what do

:55:17.:55:31.

you think, are psychopaths born or are they a product of their

:55:32.:55:37.

environment? You could see neither. It is not a simple answer. Or both?

:55:38.:55:43.

That is much more likely. A strong narrative has been that society

:55:44.:55:50.

shapes people, people can turn children into monsters and that is

:55:51.:55:57.

something I have been struggling to get away from, not to blame parents

:55:58.:56:04.

or the environment because many people growing up in terrible

:56:05.:56:09.

environments do not grow up to be psychopaths so to become a

:56:10.:56:12.

psychopath, not that you are born like that but you have to have

:56:13.:56:16.

certain genetic predisposition is to go along that path. But there will

:56:17.:56:21.

be choices all the time along that path. We would be very interested to

:56:22.:56:27.

find out what it is that makes some people get really to the dark side.

:56:28.:56:34.

High with those genetic predisposition is manifest

:56:35.:56:41.

themselves? The significant thing is, it's a kind of emotional

:56:42.:56:47.

disorder. It is an inability to resonate emotionally with others, to

:56:48.:56:52.

have that sort of empathy that for us is something that happens

:56:53.:56:56.

completely spontaneously. We are infected by the moods of others, if

:56:57.:57:00.

somebody is afraid we are infected by that but it does not happen like

:57:01.:57:05.

that for psychopaths. They do not have these kinds of feelings.

:57:06.:57:09.

Therefore it is very easy for them if they want to pursue a goal and

:57:10.:57:15.

another person stands in a way, to just get rid of them in a way that

:57:16.:57:19.

is inconceivable if you have this emotional response that is part of

:57:20.:57:27.

our normal make up. That is what is missing. We have a morbid

:57:28.:57:31.

fascination with this whole subject matter, what made you want to make

:57:32.:57:34.

this programme now, hasn't been bubbling away for a while? Firstly

:57:35.:57:40.

we made a couple of programmes before about autism and OCD and we

:57:41.:57:45.

were talking about what the next film could be and we wanted

:57:46.:57:49.

something she knew very little about so we could really explore it in an

:57:50.:57:57.

original way. The other thing is that Horizon is now 55 years old, we

:57:58.:58:04.

have over the decades look that this and looked at the science around it

:58:05.:58:09.

as decades have progressed so every 10-15 years the programme at the

:58:10.:58:13.

series editor will take another look at it and see where the science sets

:58:14.:58:19.

in today's world. I know you wrote ahead of the series to a number of

:58:20.:58:25.

psychopaths and only one responded which in some ways is interesting

:58:26.:58:30.

but also controversial because it was of course Ian Brady. We have a

:58:31.:58:32.

clip from the programme. Here are those letters. He even

:58:33.:58:45.

wrote a Christmas card. He often lists his good deeds, but what I

:58:46.:58:50.

find most interesting, Brady's thoughts about morality. Thoughts he

:58:51.:58:55.

claims he formed during his first stint in prison aim to just -- aged

:58:56.:59:01.

just 17, long before the Moors murders ever took place. He

:59:02.:59:07.

discusses his resolve to emulate the legal and moral elasticity of the

:59:08.:59:12.

privileged. If political leaders can commit murder in times of war, then

:59:13.:59:18.

surely he should be allowed to kill too? It's a fascinating insight into

:59:19.:59:24.

his mind. In fact, it's his attempt to put his own crimes, the kidnap

:59:25.:59:29.

and murder of five children, into context. That is the reality of what

:59:30.:59:41.

he did, it is about these young children and this crime. Do you

:59:42.:59:43.

worry, Steve, but by even reading those letters, you are giving him

:59:44.:59:46.

what he wanted? And it could be upsetting for the families? That is

:59:47.:59:50.

a big question we asked ourselves from the very beginning. In many

:59:51.:59:57.

ways he is dead is now so we are safe to explore that. But we took

:59:58.:00:02.

that really seriously. But that is not a reason not to have done it, if

:00:03.:00:07.

you follow me. My personal view on this is that Ian Brady gave nothing

:00:08.:00:12.

to society whatsoever except misery, that is all he gave. And if in some

:00:13.:00:18.

way being able to look at these letters and try to look at the way

:00:19.:00:23.

his mind works, that we can find something that may be in the future

:00:24.:00:29.

will allow us to identify people like him, that is worth pursuing, is

:00:30.:00:34.

how I saw it. From your perspective, it is a

:00:35.:00:38.

fascinating psychological debate. Could you have got told that Ian

:00:39.:00:42.

Brady at a younger age and may be changed something, made him not do

:00:43.:00:47.

what he eventually did? That is the big challenge. I think we are

:00:48.:00:51.

working towards precisely that, how can you prevent somebody doing these

:00:52.:01:00.

horrible crimes, what ever their lack of emotion is and whatever

:01:01.:01:05.

their own feeling of superiority might be that licenses them to do

:01:06.:01:12.

these things. Yes, we are trying to follow some sort of hopeful

:01:13.:01:19.

possibilities of some kind of treatment approaches. But as you

:01:20.:01:22.

said, we probably had to get in there at quite a young age to make a

:01:23.:01:25.

difference. Thank you both very much.

:01:26.:01:27.

What Makes a Psychopath: Horizon Special is on BBC

:01:28.:01:29.

If you can't catch it then, I am sure you will be able to see it on

:01:30.:01:38.

the iPlayer. Uta Frith and Steve Crabtree, lovely to talk to you.

:01:39.:01:40.

It was the soap set in Spain that the BBC hoped would bring

:01:41.:01:43.

a little sunshine to the TV schedules, but Eldorado

:01:44.:01:45.

25 years on and you may be surprised to learn

:01:46.:01:49.

that the set is still standing, in a forest near to

:01:50.:01:51.

Our arts correspondent David Sillito has been in search of Eldorado,

:01:52.:01:58.

and asks if, in the age of Brexit, is it the right time to revisit

:01:59.:02:02.

OK, I have slightly exaggerated how hard it is to find, but here it is,

:02:03.:02:28.

the original set of the short lived soap, Eldorado.

:02:29.:02:32.

There has been a rather unfortunate accident.

:02:33.:03:01.

One of its main stars was Polly Perkins.

:03:02.:03:08.

I asked her, fancy a trip to Eldorado?

:03:09.:03:15.

What are your thoughts looking at it?

:03:16.:03:18.

It is a terrible shame, what a waste!

There were good actors, good storylines here.

:03:24.:03:27.

Would you want to bring Eldorado back?

:03:28.:03:31.

There are a lot of people, when I work in a show or do

:03:32.:03:40.

something, they ask, what happened to Eldorado?

:03:41.:03:44.

She is not the only one who would love to see it return.

:03:45.:03:47.

Ten million watched the final episode, but what would

:03:48.:03:50.

I went in search of the real-life Eldorado set on the Costa del Sol.

:03:51.:03:58.

Of course, Eldorado in 1992 reflected a time

:03:59.:04:13.

They sold their properties, they didn't want to wait to know

:04:14.:04:30.

People say it is going to be this or that, we say, nobody knows.

:04:31.:04:42.

Nobody has come out and said, this is what will affect you,

:04:43.:04:45.

It may have been lost to time, by 25 years on,

:04:46.:04:51.

the set is ready to go, just in case someone

thinks it is a good time for a turbulent eurodrama.

:08:24.:08:39.

Welcome back. Thank you very much. Louise Mensch and two years ago you

:08:40.:08:44.

were sat here, then on your way... I think the 20 minutes it took to get

:08:45.:08:47.

from here to Manchester train station you wear the number one

:08:48.:08:51.

single. We were outside the top ten, in that time it went to number nine,

:08:52.:08:56.

number five and their number one. I was in the car with Ed Sheeran and

:08:57.:09:02.

he was very excited. I didn't know what to do with myself. He was

:09:03.:09:07.

literally jumping up and down in the car. I hadn't seen him but excited

:09:08.:09:10.

about anything. He seems more excited about my thing than his.

:09:11.:09:16.

Which was quite sweet. Back with another album now, tell is a little

:09:17.:09:20.

bit about it. It has a lot of tracks? Adopt the deluxe version...

:09:21.:09:26.

Maybe I have the deluxe version. There are 17 on that. Happy

:09:27.:09:34.

Accidents, it comes out on the. You have had a couple of significant

:09:35.:09:37.

happy accidents? Both took place in the same place. There is a place in

:09:38.:09:45.

London called The Bedford in Balham, I met Ed bear on the acoustic

:09:46.:09:49.

circuit six or seven years ago. I had only met him once and got a

:09:50.:09:55.

phone call four or five later... Years later. It is also the place I

:09:56.:10:00.

met my wife. Two happy accidents. The reason it is called Happy

:10:01.:10:03.

Accidents is she walked into the wrong room, she was supposed to see

:10:04.:10:09.

a standard comedy show and walked into the wrong room, where I was

:10:10.:10:13.

playing a -- stand-up comedy show. She subsequently told me I was not

:10:14.:10:18.

very funny! And nothing has changed. She sent me a message saying hooray

:10:19.:10:24.

for happy accidents, and that. When she said you weren't very funny,

:10:25.:10:29.

what was your comeback to make sure the nation should lasted longer? I

:10:30.:10:33.

said I would try to learn some jokes. I haven't, I am still not

:10:34.:10:40.

funny. But I did OK, yeah. Ed is essentially your boss, how does that

:10:41.:10:48.

work? Is he overseeing what you are doing, fiddling about? I am on a

:10:49.:10:53.

label with Ed, through Ed that generally does not interfere in the

:10:54.:10:57.

songs I create and make and the album I want to make. I think that

:10:58.:11:02.

is very rare, I get to make the complete record I wanted to make. Ed

:11:03.:11:09.

gives advice, listens in on mixes. We recorded in LA in February, he

:11:10.:11:15.

was over to do the Grammys, I got him for an hour between doing some

:11:16.:11:19.

weird promo house cake and doing a Bee Gees tribute for the Grammys, in

:11:20.:11:24.

the time it takes to get from that place to another place in the car,

:11:25.:11:28.

we listen to my mixes and he is saying we could have some piano in

:11:29.:11:33.

here, maybe, maybe some backing vocals here? I said, I will give it

:11:34.:11:39.

a go. That is how I get it. That is fine. Whenever I read an

:11:40.:11:43.

interview with you, see you anywhere or listen to you on the radio, you

:11:44.:11:47.

seem incredibly laid-back about what has happened to you. Do you think

:11:48.:11:51.

that is because, I'm sure you don't mind me saying, you are into your

:11:52.:11:55.

40s? So the superstardom has come later than it normally comes for

:11:56.:11:59.

people? I think superstardom is pushing it a little bit! Stardom? I

:12:00.:12:12.

try to take it in as much as I can because I know it disappears. I am

:12:13.:12:15.

doing my best to enjoy it while it is here and trying to enjoy the

:12:16.:12:17.

moment. Perhaps that is why. When you were last year you were going on

:12:18.:12:26.

tour with One Direction, that has to be a phenomena in itself? Bat was

:12:27.:12:31.

strange, I am in my 40s opening up for a teen pop boy band. It was very

:12:32.:12:38.

unusual. But those One Direction fans, who are incredibly loyal to

:12:39.:12:43.

One Direction, were incredibly loyal to me. I had a number one album on

:12:44.:12:48.

that tour, so I will forever remember it and always feel very

:12:49.:12:51.

grateful to those guys for having me opening up for them, and to their

:12:52.:12:57.

fans. What is next for you? A launch show for my album on the 13th of

:12:58.:13:03.

September in London The Tabernacle, there are a couple of tickets left,

:13:04.:13:13.

but it is very small. The album comes out on the 29th, in October

:13:14.:13:16.

and November I am touring with James Blunt, I am sure that will be a lot

:13:17.:13:19.

of fun! I hear is a party animal, so I am nervous because I am not. I am

:13:20.:13:23.

not really a drinker, I will not be able to keep up with him. It could

:13:24.:13:25.

be a magical combination! Jamie's new album, called

:13:26.:13:27.

Happy Accidents, is released We're handing over now

:13:28.:13:28.

to the Countryfile Diaries team, when our countryside

:13:29.:13:38.

is bursting with colour and life. It's the season that brings out

the child in us all.
