enough. three hourly wage may not be enough. you have got 10 million people flooding through these airports over the next few days. these extra checks are causing these huge queues, so checks are causing these huge queues, so it is the perfect amalgamation of summer holiday story and brexit together. in the telegraph, a different take on the story. this is saying a minister here saying there should be uk only passport lines. they say to retaliate for brexit queues, so clearly blaming it on a brexit. the idea that the uk the uk even though we're not part of the free showing in travel area should have its own dedicated line. is that likely to you think? —— the shang in travel area. this slightly cancer is a silly season story. if you have newspaper space to fill, it's an unnamed minister. it has to be said. —— this slightly seems like a silly season —— this slightly seems like a silly season story. one wonders if this is notjust subterfuge season story. one wonders if this is not just subterfuge from the eu member states, if they are not just
trying to give us a warning this is something that is going to come after brexit. we should consider british only lanes in the uk if they wa nt british only lanes in the uk if they want to behave like that. such a gentlemanly, on british way. there are people looking ahead to what will happen, the immigration system, will happen, the immigration system, will we be able to cope with a border controls. it will be a huge upheaval. it certainly will be. but evenif upheaval. it certainly will be. but even if we learn to leaving the eu, this would be happening everywhere. let's move on to the sun. this is the sun newspaper, page two. this is a story according to a donald trump. donald trump has had a conversation with malcolm turnbull and he has a p pa re ntly with malcolm turnbull and he has apparently said i spoke to merkel today, and believe me, she wishes she did not do it. this is about opening the door to a large number of immigrants. what do you make of this? i think you are right to say it is as told by donald trump, so
there is always a bit of a health warning on that. a conversation between him and the australian prime minister. it is donald trump saying, he had been told this by angela merkel. it feels right, whether she would have admitted it to the american president i don't know. do they have a very close relationship! talking about angela merkel when there are all those people from across the mediterranean and syria and other places, i think she felt we must be generous, germany must be generous and open our doors. i think it is one of the few mistakes she has ever made, caused an awful lot of trouble and tension and problems in her own country. she is now regretting it, ithink in her own country. she is now regretting it, i think a lot of people in britain would say well, about time. perhaps by the way, you might have been a bit more helpful to david cameron when he was asking you to support more immigration controls in the eu. and you were not helpful. we just don't know. how
public pronouncements are very much still in line with the policy she had when she did open the borders, and of course we know donald trump... this is a president who refused to shake her hand in front of the cameras in the white house. they do not have a good relationship. he does not have the best reputation for being straight up best reputation for being straight up about his previous conversations. we know there is all sorts of enquiries and allegations going on about those kinds of things in america. we have to take this with notjust a pinch america. we have to take this with not just a pinch of salt but a tsunami of salt. a salami of salt like this in army of sugar coming across the eu and an ex—tory. —— in our next story. the president of mexico recently saying this is not how it happened at all, this conversation. can you stop going on about paying for the wall...? conversation. can you stop going on about paying for the wall. . . ? he was getting damaged in the states in the polls because mexico kept denying it was going to pay for the wall. he had spent two years saying a word.
hei had spent two years saying a word. he i suppose trying to twist the president's wrists and saying, can you please stop saying? say it will bea you please stop saying? say it will be a negotiation. of course, there is no reason for the mexican president to say there will be a negotiation. the wall was never going to be paid for by mexico. the point black repeated that. i think this is going to go down as another trump mishap. i'm sure donald trump will be tweeting about it in the morning. on gdi, blood on our hands. this is a story we have covered a lot today. —— on to the eye newspaper. a big problem with mental health ca re particularly a big problem with mental health care particularly the young people. it has been going up the political agenda. really shown words from this judge, who said from dealing with the case of this poor girl in a very unhappy state of mind, trying to kill herself many times. it has been recommended she go to a specialist units that will care for her and bring her back to health. but i believe there is a six month waiting
list for said unit, and thejudge has come out with these tremendously strong words, saying we cannot help this girl something will happen and we will have blood on our hands. if this get something done, getting something moving, it will be beautiful. jeremy hunt early in the week was talking about recruiting extra mental staff, that's wonderful. it's the rhetoric and the talk about parity between physical health and mental health. absolutely, this is in yourface reality. yes, and it seems like such a clear—cut case. she is in care at the moment and she lives in a room where there are no objects, where she has no belongings, where they have had to use restraints on her 117 times in a recent period. because she has tried to take on life so many times. now the judge is saying it is so obvious we need to find some new situation for this girl. it isjust not there because i suppose the resources are not or they have not worked out if they
need a particular amount of care for the situation. either way there is something going very wrong and this will perhaps move things forward. the bbc had figures today showing that some had been waiting over a year to find beds coming out of hospital. desperate, desperate. a related story, with the wider nhs. this is a story coming from tim breaks, he is conducting a comprehensibility efficiency audit. of the nhs. he is saying if the nhs expects more money, then it has to cut waste. it's about efficiencies. what do you make of this?|j cut waste. it's about efficiencies. what do you make of this? i would say actually, yes, and indeed yes. having worked with the health service —— having dealt with the health service, all of us have had dealings with the wonderful health service. sometimes things have to be done twice because things go straight, the wrong thing is asked for. he is talking particularly that hundreds of millions of pounds a year being wasted because patients end up in these emergency surgery beds when if you had done tests more
quickly, they might not have to be there. it's quite a harsh message. i suppose a lot of people say, it plays into, a minister is always trying to say we are putting more money into the nhs. but it could be more efficient. they are comparing how come this hospital can do it? ministers are going to like this message because the nhs is quite often saying we need more people, more money. i think a mixture is needed. we know there is huge variations across the nhs and that is partly because of the structure of it. we certainly do not need a huge restructuring again, we do not top—down control. we do know the nhs has been forced to make billions and billions of pounds of efficiency savings already in 2010, the tinted ten and 2015. 20 billion savings already in 2010, the tinted ten and 2015.20 billion in savings already in 2010, the tinted ten and 2015. 20 billion in that period alone. and more since then as well. of course, the other part to the context of this not really
mentioned here is a massive increase in costs for the nhs as well in terms of the ageing population, and that has come out very heavily in the last few days as well in terms of the changes to the state pension. all these things tied together. all the amazing advances in medical treatment as well. if you concentrate on efficiency savings the whole time, you're not really talking about the whole problem. and sugar! that is not what the nhs needs more of. what's this all about, alison? the eu makes you fat, it is now official. this is a tremendous story, i didn't write it! 0h, tremendous story, i didn't write it! oh, come on! a tsunami of cheap sugar. the basic story is this... it's going to flood in here and wash us all away! it's going to make us eat toffee. there are currently quote in place in europe, you knew, which produces half the world sugar but he doesn't like that. as to how much can be produced. the eu is sweeping away these quotas, so all
is sugar producers are gearing up frantically for october. there will be more sugar, it will be like charlie and the chocolate factory. and the fear about the obesity warning is that producing more sugar brings the price down, and if you brings the price down, and if you bring the price down, manufacturers no longer have an incentive to use less of it in their products. just ata time less of it in their products. just at a time when we are all getting fatter and fatter and in and in because of the sugar. the department of health wants us to eat less sugar and the department of the environment says this is great for british farmers. moving on quickly, a quick word about robert hardy who has died today at the age of 91. just hearing the signature tune to all creatures great and small...m we had it downloaded in the studio on sheet music, i could play. it's just as well we don't! i'm really sad about robert hardy, my to his family. lovely tribute. —— my condolences to his family. graf,
elegant and twinkly. lots of younger people know him from the harry potter films. that's after my time, i remember him in all creatures great and small. we were interviewing one of his co—stars earlier, saying his greatness was because everything had to be done perfectly. do you remember the show! i vaguely remember the tune... i was too young for this show, too old for harry potter. kind of missed out. right, now finally. this is a story we really want to talk about. on the metro. we will talk about moisturiser. i think we are. it might be, because you are always impeccable... moisturiser probably does not very much, she says. what does not very much, she says. what do you think, does it? yes. we think it does. on the other hand, i think helen mirren has some sort of
miraclejeans. i helen mirren has some sort of miracle jeans. i can't helen mirren has some sort of miraclejeans. i can't remember how would she is but she looks amazing. she is also the face of la real, and i believe she has come out and said moisturiser stonework. they will be so pleased with her! what's your view? looks like there will be looking for a new face for l'oreal. open to any offers... he definitely uses moisturiser. i can see. you don't need it! bright, what a good note to end on. thank you very much. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you to my guests, joe and alison. that's it from us, good night. it still feels like summer is on hiatus. we have had some pretty
u nsettled hiatus. we have had some pretty unsettled weather around during thursday, saw some really heavy showers blowing through quickly in the south on a strong wind. further north the winds were that bit lighter. it meant the heavy, thundery showers became very slow moving. it brought some impressive cloud skates for some of our weather watchers. but if you are on your summer holidays, i suspect you might have wa nted summer holidays, i suspect you might have wanted to see a bit more blue sky than that. as we go on into friday, low pressure is still in charge of the scene. spinning up to the north—east, this weather frontier bends its way in, more persistent rain southwards across scotla nd persistent rain southwards across scotland during the night. some showers for northern ireland, north—west england, the further south you are the less showers you will see. largely dry, clearspells. 12 to 15 degrees. tomorrow begins on a soggy note across large parts of scotland. outbreaks of rain, splashing southwards. particularly heavy across the east work will be windier than today. for northern
ireland, some brightness, sunshine, a few showers around for north—west england and wales two. across eastern areas, the midlands, east wales and down into the south—west there will be some sunshine to start there will be some sunshine to start the day. a few showers here and now, starting with a around 15 degrees. the taunton, 16 in cardiff. during the day, not too many showers across the day, not too many showers across the south. a fair amount of dry weather and sunshine. further north, some showers. quite a few showers once again across scotland. probably not quite as heavy as the ones we saw today. temperatures ranging from 17 in the north to maybe 23 towards the south—east. a bit of warmth towards the south—eastern areas. most showers failing during friday night before the start of the weekend we are essentially stranded between high pressure which is trying to build its way in from the south—west and low pressure which are still hanging around up towards the north—east. that will bring us in north—westerly wind, never particularly warm. quite a clutch of showers likely across central portions of the country through the
day. those temperatures just 16 to 21 degrees. sunday should start off financial ride, if rather chilly. some sunshine around, rain spreading from the west later in the day. this is bbc news. i'm vicki young. the headlines at 11pm: the bank of england cuts its growth forecasts and warns that uncertainty over brexit has hit high—street spending and business investment. a seniorjudge condemns mental health support for young people and says the state could have blood on its hands over the case of a suicidal teenager. a british computer expert who shut down the hacking of the nhs has been arrested in america, accused of links to other malicious software. tributes have been paid to the stage and screen actor, robert hardy, who has died at the age of 91.
