this is bbc news. i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 5pm: labour's brexit spokesman, sir keir starmer, says mps who want to stop a no—deal brexit will seek to bring forward legislation against it this week. the route will be by legislation because i believe there has got to be legislation in place to lock this and make it unlawful for him to take us out without a deal. the cabinet minister responsible for no—deal preparations, michael gove, refuses to commit the government to follow pa rliament‘s orders if no—deal legislation is passed. let's see what the legislation says. you're asking me about a pig and a poke. i will wait to see what the legislation the opposition may try to bring forward. meanwhile, the eu's

lead brexit negotiator, michel barnier, says the uk has now reached a "moment of truth". he rejects borisjohnson‘s demand for the irish backstop to be scrapped. hurricane dorian is the strongest ever to hit the bahamas — us forecasters describe the conditions there as "catastrophic". pro—democracy activists in hong kong target the city's airport after a night of violence in which dozens of people were injured. political leaders from across the world gather in poland to mark the 80th anniversary of the start of world war ii, as the german president asks for poland's forgiveness at the event.
5:02 pm
good afternoon and welcome to bbc news. labour says it'll present a bill in parliament this week designed to stop the uk leaving the eu without a deal. sir keir starmer, the shadow brexit secretary, has told the bbc that if the legislation is passed, it's likely to delay the date of departure. the cabinet minister, michael gove, refused to commit the government to implementing such a change even if it's approved by mps — saying ministers would wait to see what happens in westminster this week. here's our political correspondent, susana mendonca. protesters took to the streets across the country this weekend to object to the government's decision to suspend parliament, which has been viewed by some as an attempt to block debate over brexit. there will be more action from mps promising to bring in a new law to prevent no—deal at the end of october. but how do you get politicians from different parties,
5:03 pm
and with very different endgames, to work together? very simple. the route will be by legislation because i believe there has got to be legislation in place to lock this and make it unlawful for him to take us out without a deal. it's a very simple plan. but i was concerned that over the summer, lots of people were talking about different plans. there have been lots of plans. we needed one plan to come back. labour is working with other political parties, including the lib dems and the snp, to force an extension deadline. but the minister in charge of no—deal planning would not be drawn on whether the government would abide by any new law that the mps brought in. for a government to say we won't abide by legislation is impossible, surely? well, we will see what the legislation says when it is put forward. for me, the most important thing is to bear in mind, actually, we already have legislation in place, which an overwhelming majority of mps voted for. we already have an eu withdrawal act, we already have the notice on article 50, the process by which we leave
5:04 pm
the european union. the overwhelming majority of mps voted to do that. the prime minister has insisted he is making progress with the eu. but that claim appears to have been contradicted by the eu's own chief negotiator michel barnier. he said the eu had already shown maximum flexibility on the issue of the irish backstop, which is the insurance policy designed to maintain an open border between the uk and ireland. more ad campaigns to prepare people for a possible no—deal brexit will start this week. but the government insists there will not be food shortages. there will be no shortages of fresh food. some prices may go up, other prices will come down. but that is unlikely to allay the fears of critics who have warned of shortages and delays at the border. that report by susana mendonca. well, earlier, i spoke to susana.
5:05 pm
she explained that it wasn'tjust labour politicians who are angry at the idea of the government ignoring any new legislation, which might be passed to prevent no—deal. we have heard from a former tory minister, who said that mr gove‘s willingness to flout the rules was a disgrace to our democracy. quite angry reactions to that. the government is saying that labour is not giving detail on what the timeframe would be. if it wanted to stop a no—deal brexit on the 31st of october, when would be the date of brexit? it is criticising labour for that. this comes off the back of the protests we have seen over the weekend against the government's decision to suspend parliament, which the government says is about the queen's speech. but critics say that it's about trying to stop to brexit. the forefront of many people's minds is how it is going to hit them in the pocket. one of those things is the subject of food shortages. there has been a lot of concern about this.
5:06 pm
michael gove was asked about this in his interview and he categorically said he thought there would be no food shortages of fresh food. well, we have had a different response from the british retail consortium, who have said that is categorically untrue. that's the quote from them. they have rejected the claims, saying the government's own assessments show the flow of goods would be reduced by a0 to 60% on day one after a no—deal brexit. they are contradicting what we have heard from michael gove. michael gove said a pig and a poke, let's see what the legislation says this week. as far as the week ahead goes, what is coming up? this is going to be a pretty busy week. i think the key thing for the mps want to stop a no—deal brexit, is whether they have the number and the time to get it through parliament. the time is very short. they are also looking at whether they will get enough tory rebels to join them.
5:07 pm
we understand some conservative backbenchers and former ministers are going to be meeting with the prime minister tomorrow. he will be wanting to outline to them where his negotiations with the eu are going, and whether or not that is enough to get them on side. we have seen from michel barnier today, talking about the idea of an irish backstop is not negotiable, as far as he is concerned. that, no doubt, will have an impact on mps who are thinking about going with the opposition. we are expecting more protests as well. there will be a couple of court cases. a very busy week. all the while, we have the government wanting to talk about its spending plans later this week and talking about education spending, wanting to focus on those domestic issues. that is the thing about prompting the idea that the government is going for a general election.
5:08 pm
that was susana mendonca speaking to me earlier. hurricane dorian has become the strongest storm in modern records to hit the northwestern bahamas, according to the national hurricane centre in the united states. the centre said catastrophic conditions were now occurring in the abaco islands, with sustained winds of up to 177 miles an hour. in the us, florida, georgia, and north and south carolina have declared states of emergency. residents have been urged to stock up with enough food, water and medicine to last at least a week. let's get the latest on this. it is a developing story. next, there has been a lot of uncertainty with dorian one thing is for sure — this isa dorian one thing is for sure — this is a huge storm. absolutely. that store making landfall on great abaco in the bahamas. you can see the check of the system here, and it is
5:09 pm
moving towards the bahamas, an indication of where possibly it's going to be going next. we will get to that in just a moment. when going to be going next. we will get to that injust a moment. when i came on shift this morning, it was still category four. tricked into a category five. it's rapidly intensified further as a category five hurricane. you don't see that often. it is something which is just incredible and it is bearing down right now on the northern bahamas, as the national hurricane centre said, catastrophic conditions, about as bad as it gets. what is it bringing? what are the bahamas experiencing? the national hurricane centre, which flies planes into the systems, measure everything else, recorded a win just over 200 mph. those are the gusts which are stronger than the winds —— a wind
5:10 pm
gust over. the winds will drop out, but as the other side of the eye moves in, the winds pick up again. there is rain to go along with that as well. 30 inches of rain, more than 750 mm command that brings flash flooding. and then you got the storm surge. all of those elements made worse by the fact this is slow—moving at the moment, and still intensifying, but may weaken with interaction of the bahamas. as the winds last longer committee rain lasts longer, the storm surge because more of an issue to —— the winds last longer, the rain. with all those elements, you get the storm surge coming in with the i ——
5:11 pm
eye. certainly, as that centre of the hurricane moves in and makes landfall, the conditions get absolutely much worse. let's talk about that track and where it is headed next. there have been a lot of questions about it lying off the coast of the us. if it does will it still have the same disruptive power? when you read about the uncertainty, last weekend, it might have marched through florida. it is still sitting in the centre of it, in this forecast, off the coast of the carolinas. at some stage, it is going to take a turn to the north. the question is when it does that. what sort of impact will be felt in florida? it what sort of impact will be felt in florida ? it may just what sort of impact will be felt in florida? it mayjust parallel that coastline of the southeast of the
5:12 pm
usa, before we get to georgia and on towards the carolinas. you can see the movement of this on the satellite picture is for heading west at the moment for study conceded lying there indicating what the best idea is, but the blue shading shows the range of possibilities. it's still possible it could make landfall in florida before it starts to take that turn to the north, but this forecast track of rain and wind here has it not making landfall, but you can see it's still rainy, windy on the coast of florida. it hasn't made landfall in the southeast usa but there are still been deadly storms. some uncertainty about the track but there will be certainly some impact regardless of the track. no question about it. that power packed. nick, thank you very much for that. and you will be back at the bottom of the half—hour? you will be back at the bottom of the half-hour? i certainly will.
5:13 pm
thank you. let's turn to events in germany. polls have now closed in eastern germany in two regional elections. two states in the former communist east of germany, brandenburg and saxony have been voting today. the far—right afd, alternative for germany party, has won 22.5% of the vote in brandenburg, making gains against the centre left social democrats and chancellor angela merkel‘s christian democrats. damien mcguinness is in berlin for us. he has been looking at those figures, monitoring those poles. just take us through as those results are to trickle in. it can be, at first glance, a quite pleasing picture. —— quite confusing picture. we have two trends. firstly, the afd, the populist
5:14 pm
party, how did they do it? they have got a big boost come away over 20% in both states, but they have not gone quite as good as they hoped. in brandenburg, until today, they were neck and neck with the ruling spd party. they had a come of the afd, to come first. that would have been in historic when —— a historical win for the afd. it would have given them a real boost and it would have meant that it would've paved the way for future coalitions with the afd and other governments in the future, that did not happen. the fact, the afd have done well but not as well as they wanted to for some the other trend we can out from these figures is how did the two ruling parties that govern together, angle of merkel‘s national government, how did they do? —— on the law merkel? they will be breathing a sigh of relief. both of those run
5:15 pm
parties have been running... there been fears, particular in brandenburg, that they might be pushing exec in place by the afd party. that did not happen there likely now, according to current results come and stay in power in both of the states. considering how the poles were looking a while ago, they have done better than expected. angela merkel‘s government will be breathing a sigh of relief. a sigh of relief, but there were talks of cracks in that coalition. yes, it is not a happy marriage. vision i want to be ina not a happy marriage. vision i want to be in a government with angela merkel‘s party. that was the worry about the election today, if the social democrats had done catastrophically badly in brandenburg, that pressure would
5:16 pm
have built on the left—wing party to split from angela merkel‘s conservatives and effectively bring down the government. because that did not happen, it really is a sign for the centre in angela merkel boston party and in the centreleft social democrats that the centre is holding, almost, so it is late sign for stability. the cracks have not gone away. they're just papered over. for now, the coalition is not collapsing but the argument are still going on and that is likely to carry on for the next few months. 0k. will the afd carry on for the next few months. ok. will the afd then be turning their attention to the next election in october? will the future and that's? —— will be feature in that? there is another election in the german states. this was the key one. saxony is the homeland of the afd. this will be a bit of a blow for them. they have made waves, way
5:17 pm
above 20%, but not quite as well as they expected. they have not broken they expected. they have not broken the barrier. if they had done better, it would've paved the way for future better, it would've paved the way forfuture governments. better, it would've paved the way for future governments. that is what they wanted. they have got their eyes on power. that, for now, is not looking like it is good to be the case, so there is no sign of them getting into government either rigidly and certainly not nationally. 0k, damien mcguinness, thank you very much for that. in hong kong, there've been fresh confrontations between police and pro—democracy demonstrators trying to bring hong kong's international airport to a standstill. last night, some protestors on the hong kong metro were beaten by police. with the latest from the airport, here's our correspondent stephen mcdonnell. activists have to an extent at least achieved their goal here at the airport in hong kong. that gate there is where passengers
5:18 pm
would normally come out to reach buses — you can see it is closed. here is a barricade that has been built to stop them coming in or out. the idea was to cause transport chaos. and here are the protesters, the pro—democracy activists, who have again defied the authorities, defied warnings that to have a rally like this risks arrest, risks the potential of being charged with illegal assembly. and they are moving around the airport from place to place, trying to block various parts of the transport infrastructure. the protesters are running in that direction and that's because police have just arrived. and it had to be only a matter of time, given the transport chaos we have seen here today. so this is the movement in action.
5:19 pm
they have a discussion and then work out what to do. the most important thing for them is to try and escape the airport area without being arrested. they have deployed delaying tactics, including building barricades and the like, to try and slow the police down. that is to give these people enough time to walk out of the airport area. but as i say, the priority now in this hit and run strategy, they have done the hit bit — now they need to run. that was stephen mcdonnell. at least 5 people have been killed — and more than 20 injured — by a gunman in the us state of texas. the gunman, a white man in his 30s, was later shot dead by police in the town of odessa. john mcmanus has this report. the terrifying moment a gun suspect crashed his vehicle into a police car, filmed by a bystander in texas. a road chase ended with police
5:20 pm
officers confronting him at this cinema complex then shooting him dead. the chase began after an officer who stopped the man's car for a traffic check was shot. the suspect then drove off, hijacking a us postal van and randomly shooting at other vehicles. just driving around, normal day, and then i hear gunshots. it was at least ten shots, ok. i got one on my door and one went through, ricocheted right here through my wrist. can't get it out yet, because it's a piece of metal. a two—year—old was amongst those injured. as the authorities broadcast warnings, the public were cleared from this shopping mall. there's something, there are people running through the mall. we're not sure why. we need to see what this is. come on, everybody. and this local tv station had to hastily evacuate their studio. 0k, we're going to leave the set—up, we're going to slip awayjust for a minute. we don't know what's going on. he is a white male in his mid—30s. as far as civilian casualties, we have at least 21 victims.
5:21 pm
21 shooting victims. and at least five deceased at this point in time. there's no sign of a let—up in american gun violence. so far this year alone, there have been hundreds of gun attacks. john mcmanus, bbc news. we have got an update on this story, and it concerns a number of people known to have died in this mass shooting. we understand that the number of debt has now risen to seven “— number of debt has now risen to seven —— the number of dead. seven the number of people killed in that shooting in texas. more as we get it. the international committee of the red cross says it believes that more than 100 people have been killed in a saudi—led coalition air strike in yemen. the attack hit a detention centre run by the houthi rebels in the western city of dhamar. the red cross said teams were searching the rubble, but that the chances of finding
5:22 pm
anyone alive were very low. a man has died after two stabbings in basingstoke, which police have described as potentially linked and targeted. he was found injured after police were called to an address last night and died later in hospital. another man was taken to hospital with serious stab wounds after being found nearby shortly afterwards. a 16—year—old is among four people to have been arrested. police investigating a fatal hit—and—run in birmingham have named the victim and appealed for public help to trace an audi estate car. 29—year—old rajesh chand was crossing a road in handsworth in the early hours of yesterday, when he was hit by a vehicle that failed to stop. west midlands police said a 30—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving in connection with the incident. he remains in custody.
5:23 pm
the trade war between the united states and china has intensified with the imposition of new tariffs or taxes on many consumer goods. the us has imposed a 15% tariff on over $100 million worth of chinese imports. china has responded with similar tariffs on us goods. earlier, we heard from our business correspondent kate prescott, who laid out the impacts these additional tariffs would have on consumers. previous tariffs have been on steel and aluminium. these are on things that are really tangible, that people buy every day. clothes, food, shoes, nappies, for example. it is hard to find anything that is not on the list. retailers say they are going to have to pass the cost of this 15% charge on to consumers because it is just too high for them to absorb it themselves. by december this year, there are going to be tariffs on almost everything that america buys from china. this is going to hit
5:24 pm
chinese businesses, too. it makes business harder to do in america, far more expensive. the big question is, when it is going to come to an end? the trade war has been going on for nearly two years. i'm afraid to say, it is not going to be anytime soon. both sides have shown an unwillingness to back down. the chinese state news agency has called president trump today a global bully. president trump said despite a lot of businesses complaining, he says he is not going to back down and the collateral damage in all of is the consumer in china and america. kt prescott there. the president of poland has warned that that the world has not fully learned the lessons from the the nazi occupation of europe during the second world war. speaking during a day of commemorations to mark the 80th anniversary of the start of the conflict, andrzej duda said imperialism had returned to europe. earlier, a ceremony took place
5:25 pm
in the town of wielun, which was the first to suffer aerial bombardment during the conflict. the german chancellor angela merkel and the us vice president mike pence were among those who observed a military parade in the polish capital, warsaw. while the hearts of every american are with our fellow citizens in the path of a massive storm, today, we remember how the gathering storm of the 20th century broke into warfare and invasion, followed by unspeakable hardship and heroism of the polish people. that was mike pence. our correspondent in warsaw, adam easton, gave us this update on today's speeches. the vice president mike pence from the united states was very complimentary of the polish
5:26 pm
resistance, polish refusal to give in, to surrender, to the notjust one but two brutal occupations at the start of the second world war — the nazis and the soviet union. he also referenced contemporary poland, howjohn paul ii came here and inspired the solidarity opposition movement to get together, to feel his support, to overcome and overthrow the communist regime. it was actually the polish president during his speech who was most striking. he talked about the absolute terror the nazi occupation launched here in poland. he said that poland and the world has not fully learnt the lessons from that absolute terror. he said that imperialism is on the rise again in europe today. that was adam easton.
5:27 pm
as war beckoned eight decades ago, britain began evacuating 1.5 million people — most of them children — from cities to the countryside. operation pied piper was the biggest and most concentrated mass movement of people in britain's history. hannah gray has been speaking to some of those wartime evacuees. the sun in the sands, where i first had my alcoholic drink at the age of ten. the age of ten? a glass of cider. roger is 91. he's brought his granddaughter to the village he was evacuated to 80 years ago. ten years old, nearly 11, and of course i was evacuated to the beautiful village of lamberhurst. can you remember the date that you got evacuated? yes, friday the 1st of september 1939. this building here is the former butcher's shop where i stayed for the first five months.
5:28 pm
roger was one of 1.5 million people evacuated at the outbreak of world war ii. archive narrator: so it's goodbye to the cities and danger areas. labelled and loaded and not forgetting their gas masks, the children head for the special train, and they're not worrying, they're off on a holiday. how were you feeling? were you afraid? no, it was great. we loved it because the battle of britain was being fought over us, the skies full of vapour trails, planes coming down in flames, parachutists coming down, we thought it was quite exciting. and this was the kitchen. stone floor. reg and mary remember it vividly too. they were only nine. we stayed in london through the blitz and then we went to, i think, north devon then, and my mum took seven children because the youngest was a baby in arms, so we were all separated.
5:29 pm
we took condensed milk, i had a big bar of cadbury's chocolate but i'm afraid that got eaten before we got to paddington station! so we got to the village and then you're in front of all these people standing there. you get picked out like prize cattle. really did. the good—looking ones, in the end, me and this other boy from paddington who i've never seen since, we was the last two. and i rememberthe children being very nasty to us, calling us bomb—dodgers and "go back to where you live" and all that. later on, every evacuee wants to run away. i had a mate, a fellow i knew up at the recreation club, he run away three times. the police took him back. and a word of advice for younger generations. not to take everything for granted because you never know if war breaks out and the next one would be...
5:30 pm
god knows, you know. but i always tell people, i'd never die on a monday. it's pension day. hannah gray, bbc news. the hand of god would have been a welcome intervention for the pope this morning, who was running late for his weekly mass at the vatican. he eventually arrived at his balcony overlooking st peter's square, where he explained himself to his anxious congregation. translation: before anything, i need to apologise for being late. there was an incident. i was stuck in the lift for 25 minutes. there was a problem with the power and the lift stopped. thanks to god, the fire brigade came. and thank you very much to them. and after 25 minutes of work, they managed to get going. a round of applause
5:31 pm
for the fire brigade. now it's time for a look at the weather with nick miller. hello there. a few showers this evening tonight. we will move away from northern ireland onto part of scotland, northern england, if you two wheels as well but by the side of this area of ticker clotted showers, dry and clear weather to be had —— over to wales as well. low single figures as we start the day tomorrow. a lot of find whether to begin with cloud increasing, some rain into northern ireland quite quickly, moving across. rather light and patchy the further south er. even though there will be more cloud with compared to today, we will stay dry. the winds will be northwest. temperatures start to go up a couple
5:32 pm
of degrees, perhaps a little bit more by the time we get to tuesday. from mid week, they will come down again. that's your forecast. hello, this is bbc news. the headlines.
5:33 pm
labour's brexit spokesman, sir keir starmer, says mps who want to stop a no—deal brexit will seek to bring forward legislation against it this week. the route will be by legislation because i believe there has got to be legislation in place to lock this and make it unlawful for him to take us out without a deal. the cabinet minister reponsible for no deal preparations, michael gove, refuses to commit the government to follow parliament's orders, if no deal legislation is passed. let's see what the legislation says. you're asking me about a pig and a poke. i will wait to see what the legislation the opposition may try to bring forward. the eu's lead brexit negotiator michel barnier says the uk has now reached a moment of truth. he rejects borisjohnson‘s demand for the irish backstop to be scrapped. hurricane dorian is the strongest ever to hit the bahamas, us forecasters describe the
5:34 pm
conditions there as catastrophic. pro—democracy activists in hong kong target the city's airport after a night of violence in which dozens of people were injured. political leaders from across the world gather in poland to mark the 80th anniversary of the start of world war ii as the german president asks for poland's forgiveness at the event. sport and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's connie mclaughlin. good evening. ferrari's charles leclerc has dedicated his first formula one victory to anthoine hubert, the 22 year old frenchman who was killed in a crash at the spa circuit during a formula 2 race yesterday. a minute's silence was held before the belgian grand prix this afternoon. le clerc was a good friend of the huberts as patrick gearey reports.
5:35 pm
for a fora minute, for a minute, the engines fell silent. spa paused for anthoine hubert, killed in a crash yesterday. he was only 22. a tragic reminder of the risks drivers face as an occupational hazard. it's light out, away we go. at these speeds, anything can happen. many of the crowd had come to watch max verstappen, born in belgium but his race was over within a lap, but he was unharmed. lewis hamilton was chasing the two ferraris, a test of strategy and velocity. hamilton took longer in the pits that he might have but in his mercedes he knows he can make up time. he passed a flagging sebastian vettel into second and went after charles liber —— charles mcclair but the man had —— charles mcclair but the man had —— charles leclerc, but he had motivation, he had raced alongside huberfor years.
5:36 pm
motivation, he had raced alongside huber for years. one of the motivation, he had raced alongside huberfor years. one of the moment of his life had been put in a sober context. some things are more important. celtic won the first old firm match of the season, they beat rangers 2—0 at ibrox to maintain their 100 percent start to the season. nick parrott was watching. the atmosphere at an old firm derby can be one of the most intense in football, but that doesn't always help the players on the pitch. rangers had an unbeaten start to protect, celtic are points to make after losing their last two visits to ibrox. stalemate for the opening half—hour, not a single shot on target until odsonne edouard made the first one counts. rangers were making a mark but in the wrong way. and could not take the few chances that came their way. if it had not had been for allan mcgregor, this match might have been over as a contest much earlier. they were into stoppage time beforejonny hayes made sure of the victory, with his
5:37 pm
first goal since december 2017. and just to make things worse for rangers, substitute childrenjones's first old firm derby ended with —— jordanjones's first old firm derby ended with —— jordan jones's first old form first old firm derby ended with —— jordanjones's first old form derby ended with just seconds to go. celtic are now aiming for a ninth successive league title. the early match in the premier league was a cracker at goodison park as everton beat wolves 3—2. three goals inside the first 15 minutes got the fans off their seats, richarlison giving everton an early lead. it wasn't long before roman sieass equalised after great work from traore. but everton were ahead again moments later, alex iwobi with his first league goal for the club. it took until the last 15 minutes for the next goals to come, wolves with a second equaliser, raul himinez with a brave header. but richarlison popped up with a header to score his second and what proved to be the winner.
5:38 pm
wolves actually ended the game with ten men after bole was sent off. everton move up the table to fifth. we started well in the match, they will react well. they way they scored the goals, i didn't like it, and it's something we have to keep working on. but we showed always a fantastic reaction. we react when they drew, 79 minutes, we reacted again. and i think it was a fair result, the three points for us. again. and i think it was a fair result, the three points for usm was a very good game, very result, the three points for usm was a very good game, very good game, like you said, the fight was there, most teams fight for each ball, it was a very competitive game. it's a very tough team at goodison park, being able to score twice, not so good in defence like
5:39 pm
we should and must be. in the north london derby, arsenal are hosting spurs — spurs off to a great start, christian erikson putting them ahead after ten minutes then harry kane scored from the penalty spot. alexandre lacazette got one back just before half time, 2—1 the score, the second halfjust under way. after finishing fourth in the women's world cup this summer, england's women are now looking ahead to the next major tourament when they host the european championships in 2021. jodie taylor has been talking to the bbc and she says the style of football the team are playing is the best that it's ever been. we look over the last few years and over other tournaments, the style and brand of football we are playing now is the best it's ever been. it's just fine margins now, and we went toe to toe in america in the world cup, and the gap really is not that small and the fact that we are able
5:40 pm
to identifies areas we can make huge drives and over the next six to 12 months, two years, is quite exciting. it's the last 16 of the us open tennis, our tennis reporter david law canjoin us now from flushing meadows. david, johanna konta is in action later against karolina pliskova. how do you rate her chances? i think they are 50—50, pretty much. on paper she certainly comes in as the underdog, she is the lower ranked player, karolina pliskova is the lower —— higher seeded and she has won six of their seven previous meetings. howeverjohanna has won six of their seven previous meetings. however johanna konta has won six of their seven previous meetings. howeverjohanna konta has been quite magnificent recently, she could not have played better so far. she has not had a float like pliskova to play against so that is a factor, giving her a chance to get hertiming, she a factor, giving her a chance to get her timing, she will face a much bigger hitting player in pliskova today. but this match is anybody‘s, they are just about to come out on

they are just about to come out on the lewis armstrong court, the second coat here at the lewis open for the last 16 clash. roger federer continues his quest to win the final? he is a 5-2 up against david goffin, he was an early break of serve down, but then he reeled off 15 points in a row against the belgium who has won only one of their previous nine matches. that is a very heavy favourite for this match. it will be interesting to see who comes through. fedor has the set point. we have just lost who comes through. fedor has the set point. we havejust lost the who comes through. fedor has the set point. we have just lost the second seed nadal federer. ash party has just been beaten by wang qiang of china. —— ashleigh barty. thanks david, and staying at the us open, defending champion naomi osaka consoled fifteen year old coco gauff after beating her in straight sets 6—3, 6—0. gauff‘s serving badly letting her down in the second set. and osaka showed her compassion in victory afterwards, with some reassuring words

for the emotional american teenager. it was kind of instinctive because when i shook her hand, i saw that she was tearing up a little and then it reminded me how young she was and then for me, at least when i lose ijust come into the locker room and cry and then i do press here. i love you guys but it's not the greatest. vasily lomachenko has set his sights on become the undisputed lightweight world champion after beating luke campbell. the ukrainian, who is regarded as the pound—for—pound best boxer in the world right now, had a tricky night against britain's campbell in london but shone through as alex gulrajani reports. he came, he saw, and he conquered. the silly limiting her leaves london today with some excess baggage. —— vasily lomachenko leaves london to
5:43 pm
date with some excess baggage. luke campbell vying for a first professional title made his presence felt early against a man who has won the men's three different weight divisions. lomachenko showed his class, the bell saving campbell. he came back and blocked the favourite momentarily. lomachenko regrouped impressively, looking for a knockout win and almost getting it. the bravery and courage of campbell denied him, the hull fighter hanging on anywhere he could. the fight going the distance, lomachenko the clear winner and full of praise for his opponent. he's a very smart fighter, he has a reach. it's a great power, he has a very big power, and a power shut, if he had given me a good shot, yes. campbell's stock has undoubtedly risen despite defeat. for lomachenko, the path to greatness

continues. warren gatland has named his final 31 man squad for the rugby world cup that starts in just under 3 weeks injapan. rhys pratchell, who scored a try yesterday against the irish, is included at fly half, that's as back up that's as back up to dan biggar. lock cory hill is also in the squad despite currently being sidelined with a fractured leg. wales begin their world cup campaign in japan against georgia on the 23rd september. and just before i go congratulations to great britain's alyson dixon who is now the proud world record holder over 50 kilometres. the runnerfrom sunderland was taking part in an ultramarathon for the first time at the 50km world championships in romania and won. the a0 year old knocked more than a minute off the world record which had stood since 1989. that's all the sport for now. at the moment, still currently 2—1
5:45 pm
for tottenham, leading against arsenal. you can find out more on the bbc sport website. now it is time for click. a warm welcome to click. welcome to click. welcome to click, i am spencer kelly. finally we have reached a very special milestone. we have been on air every week of every year, without a break, since we launched in the year 2000, which means this week you are watching season 1, episode 1000. and to celebrate, we are
5:46 pm
making a world first. doing new things is in our dna. i am floating on air. which is why we don't just show you the tech, we use the tech to push the boundaries of what's possible on tv. here is the team. it is marc on camera one and two, simon on camera three and four, jen on five, nima on six and seven, ben on eight and this is thalia on nine. this was the world's first full tv programme to be filmed and edited only on mobile devices. fyi, it was a nightmare. this week's click has been filmed entirely in 360 degrees. this was another world first, where we reinvented how tv was made, for an audience that could look in any direction at any time.
5:47 pm
and this week, for click 1000, we have really gone for it. do i explore the cave, or do i look behind the tree? i'll explore the cave. so turn to page 8a. this is how i spent a lot of my childhood, reading books where i could choose my own adventure, where at every point, i got to decide what happened next, and every time i read it, the story changed. i absolutely loved them. not only was i in a different world, but because i was in charge of the story, that story came to life. it felt so real. come on then, spen.
5:48 pm
so, after choose your own adventure books, came computer adventure games, first with text, and then with amazing graphics. but both would let me explore vast worlds, bigger than any book. the problem is tv doesn't let us do that. it tells one story, it makes one set of choices, and we just sit back and watch. until now. i demand freedom! imagine if everything that you watched was interactive, and if you could change your experiences depending on your mood, your desires, or even how much time you had. if you go online at the address that's on—screen now, you will find a special version of this programme that is interactive. you get to choose which tech stories you hear about, and in how much detail. as you watch, you'll be given options to dive deeper,
5:49 pm
or maybe to look at things from a different perspective, or maybe to skip one entirely. the technology used to make this possible is known as object based media, or obm, and it could be the future of how we watch video content. broadcasters have been developing the tech for years now. bbc r&d has explored the concept with various online tutorials. the step by step nature of obm is particularly useful there. netflix has had a dabble with its puss in boots, and more recently, with charlie brooker‘s interactive bandersnatch. and now, premiering the bbc‘s first ever obm tv show is us. to say it's been a tricky, brain—melting minefield would be an understatement. it's a little bit like trying to pick up ants from space using tweezers with a blindfold on.
5:50 pm
these are all the plans that we've made to figure out how we're going to structure this episode. doing obm is really different because you have to think of the story in different ways, because people might have seen other bits of the story, they might have chosen different path through the story. i have been told to create 700 million versions. it has taken more brainpower than any episode i have ever worked on, and more teamwork, to get the thing out there. trust me, we're not talking to each other the moment. what does that stand for? wizard. but we couldn't have done it without r&d‘s otherworldly expertise. matthew and his team have been devising an obm strategy for the last few years. a couple of years ago we decided we wanted to try and transfer this capability to create this stuff. we were busy engineering it, but we didn't have any tools. so we decided to build a story kit, essentially. custom—made software can handle
5:51 pm
hundreds of pieces of content, like video, audio and text, and put them together on the fly, as viewers make their choices. so it's a tool that is aimed at producers who have no hot software development skills, so the whole idea was to allow these people to then easily use an interface like a drag—and—drop interface like story former, to create those experiences. all in all, we think we have 148 different chunks of video, which to my mind makes about a gazillion different paths through the content. also tons of footage, and we've used up every hard drive that we have. i suppose it's been keeping me up at night, thinking are we going to get it finished in time? it really has been a challenging process. there's been times when i had to dojust like... but we think, we really think, it's been worth it. putting you in the driving seat will mean, hopefully, you at home can enjoy the show more
5:52 pm
than ever before more. at the core of being able to give you all these choices is the idea of branching narratives, possible options that lead onto the next bit, or reroute you to a part where the story can flow from there. to get advice on how to create a multiple—choice click, i went to create one of the creators of the fighting fantasy books i grew up with, ian livingstone. it involves writing multiple storylines at once. and how i used to do it was create a map, on which i kept a record of all the encounters as you went through the adventure. it's giving you a choice like do you want to turn left or right, which is a simple choice, or do you want to try and tiptoe past the sleeping goblin or attack him with your sword. and the choices are quite varied. so when i'm writing i have to keep a record of where the reader would go. so if you make this choice, i need to make sure that they can actually get out of there,
5:53 pm
and then these are all the encounters. they find gold, they find treasure, they find magical items. can i show you our version of an adventure map? this is the layout of this actual interview, which is multichoice. what do you think? minimalist. not too many options, so we should be done in less than four hours. because it can take you days to get through a fighting fantasy game book. good luck on your adventure. but with great power comes great responsibility, i mean, do you really want to make decisions about the tv programme and films that you watch? would you rather just sit back and relax? and also, if you want to talk to your friends about what you've seen, they've seen a different version of the show, you don't have a common ground. and then there's another thing. through interactive experiences, it's possible to get tabs on viewers' habits, and you may be giving out more information about yourself than you think.
5:54 pm
here is more. extrovert or introvert, open to new experience, or more comfortable with tradition? we're using the data you collect while you watch the obm to deliver a specific advert to you. the choices you made gave us an idea of your personality, it's certainly not scientific, but when you try it out, see if we were right. researchers have worked out that even simple data leaks can give indications about your personality. with just 75 facebook likes being as illuminating as asking a work colleague about you. and with 300, as accurate as asking a partner about you. you can infer private stuff from data you might think is not too meaningful. people's personality, people's intelligence, political views, religious views, sexuality, just because you like camping and a few other things. we all recognise when facebook,
5:55 pm
google and instagram do this, showing adverts tailored to our behaviour. this can be good if you're looking for a specific item, but can also be a bit unnerving. people often say online advertising is creepy, so you are talking to a friend, then later on you see an advertisement for the same thing you are talking about. it mayjust be that you were talking to your friend, but then the fact you are talking to someone else, they may search for something, then suddenly you are seeing an ad for something that they're interested in. they infer you are friends and therefore probably have similar interests. if all this creeps you out a bit, we'll look to see some of the tools online that may help obscure your data trail. you might want to get rid of the cookies stored on your browser. these store personal data like your login, email address and what is in your shopping basket. clear the cookies from your web browser using the appropriate menu. in chrome, it is in the history settings. in safari, choose preferences

hello. it may have turned cooler today but there's actually been a fair amount of sunshine, a few passing showers but many places staying dry, cloud certainly built after a sunny start to the day. this is a picture earlier from eastern scotland. it is part of it in scotland and north—east england that have seen a few heavy showers, some thundery as well. high—pressure to the south west of the uk, the flow around that has introduced cooler air from the north—west. and the showers which have been moving southwards during the day. as you go into tonight, still a few showers to be had, a zone of cloud and showers moving away from northern ireland this evening, parts of northern england will see a few of these as well. but away from that, dry and quite clear weather to come allowing temperatures to dip away. if anything a little bit cooler than it was last night up and down the uk, rural spots, temperatures could be into mid to low single figures so clearly cooler than it will be in the town and city centres. into tomorrow, most of us starting dry with some sunshine. the cloud and rain into northern ireland will move across scotland,
5:58 pm
northern england seeing that as well. patchy rain affecting parts of wales and south—west england. much of the midlands, east anglia and the south—east, even though cloud is going to increase after early sunshine, we will stay dry and temperatures here a little bit higher than they have been during sunday. as we look beyond monday, it's an atlantic influence into our weather so there will be further weather fronts, waether systems is coming in. tuesday cloud moving in, some outbreaks of rain, and the further east you are in england, you're likely to stay dry, a few sunny spells, temperature even a little bit higher, as high as 2a celsius. but mid week temperatures are coming down again. why? we have a cold front moving south as we go into wednesday, the isobars are starting to turn around. more of a northerly direction so we will feel a bit of a chill in northern scotland by the end of the wednesday. early rain clearing away from the south—east, some of that rain may be quite welcome. and showers moving across scotland, northern ireland and into northern
5:59 pm
england, wind arrows pointing to the north. so northern scotland only around 12, 13 degrees. 20 at best in the south—east. for much of the uk, sticking around the mid—teens. so briefly teens with a mediocre warm up at the start of the week, and then temperatures after that will be only at or below average of the time of year. some rain times, some sunny spells occasionally too but at times rather chilly nights.
6:00 pm
this is bbc news. i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 6pm: labour's brexit spokesman, sir keir starmer, says mps who want to stop a no—deal brexit will seek to bring forward legislation against it this week. the route will be by legislation because i believe there has got to be legislation in place to lock this and make it unlawful for him to take us out without a deal. the cabinet minister reponsible for no deal preparations, michael gove, refuses to commit the government to follow parliament's orders if no deal legislation is passed. let's see what the legislation says. you're asking me about a pig and a poke. i will wait to see what legislation the opposition may try to bring forward. the eu's lead brexit negotiator, michel barnier, says the uk has now
