1 euro billion to end a long—running investigation into its taxes. it rounds off a four year investigation that saw authorities raid google‘s paris headquarters in 2016. the guardian says an area of forest the size of the uk is being lost every year around the world, the vast majority of it tropical rainforest, with dire effects on the climate emergency and wildlife. the rate of loss has reached 26m hectares or 64m acres a year. and finally be careful where you place your coffee cup, especially when you're the pilot. a commercial flight bound for mexico with 326 people on board was forced to make an emergency landing when hot coffee was accidentally spilled over the cockpit control panel. the airliner was flying over the atlantic ocean and was forced to turn back and land in ireland. that is one expensive cup of coffee.

with me is fiona cincotta, who's a senior market analyst at city index. let's start with more brexit. you are saying that maybe one day we will not have to lead on brexit — what a hopeful thought. the dup possibly opening a door for boris johnson. possibly opening a door for boris johnson. this is really interesting. the problems we have been seeing as far as the deal going through and the problems relating to it is this i wish backstop problem. —— irish backstop problem. the dup have said they are willing to shift that redline. whereas before they were not willing to accept regulatory checks or anything that treated northern ireland differently from the rest of the uk, there are signs they might be willing to move here
5:47 am
now and that would be really interesting because that would open the opportunity to have a new deal. the reason they have taken this new start, a poll has come out suggesting that northern ireland voters would back a reunification over staying in the uk and that seems to be a tipping point. they need dublin's support. we heard from the irish prime minister that they have not been any proposals put forward but let's see if that opens a new door but further talks by the chief brexit negotiator going to brussels. and the time is definitely running out and it is not the first time we have a centre that! boris johnson, if you cannot get an election, does need a deal. we will
5:48 am
see if there are any developments. in the financial times, the european central bank has announced this package of measures calling for urgent spending to relaunch the stimulus. this is really interesting. it was expected that the ecb would put stimulus measures in place given the state of the eurozone economy. concerns over the health especially of the german economy, the largest economy in the eurozone, and it is in contraction and risks recession. inflation is low across europe and they need to start stimulating the economy. what was not expected was that the quantitative easing was not given a timeline, it is indefinite. also interesting the pushbike mario
5:49 am
draghi to start fiscal spending to boost the economy. mario draghi is going to be leaving the ecb as president, christine lagarde is coming in and she's politically deep rooted so we might see this move towards fiscal stimulus going forward. donald trump, we note he has been fed bashing for quite a while and he also took this opportunity to attack mario draghi. the suggestion of bringing the right lower. mario draghi clear that is not what they are doing. do you think the measures will work?” not what they are doing. do you think the measures will work? i do not think the stimulus on its own will be enough to busy economy. if it is combined with fiscal stimulus, particularly in germany, there is a suggestion that this could start boosting the economies. and how much

google has to pay to and at the french tax probe — i billion euros. certainly an awful lot less could have been lost to pay. how did this come about? remind us. the french authorities have been having a long—running investigation into google for its taxes... they rated their offices. that's right, a couple of years ago. it is an international loophole where google has it head office in dublin and it needs... paszek tax and pace of its tax in ireland stop the loophole hinges on the fact that stuff in dublin must include all sale contracts. the french authorities have been investigating and they believe that google owed i.6 have been investigating and they believe that google owed 1.6 billion euros. the settlement was for i

billion which is significantly less and this comes at a time when google have had other fines as well for their behaviour from the eu. have had other fines as well for their behaviourfrom the eu. 150 billion fine for blocking rival on line search advertising. the european commission find them 43 billion for the android operating system... it is adding up. they earn a lot through revenue as well. let's see if it does affect them. the guardian, a stark and depressing headline. this article, the facts and figures that came from this article really are quite eye—opening. there was the new york declaration to halve deforestation by2020 declaration to halve deforestation by 2020 and with 150 million
5:52 am
hectares... that was five years ago. but the rate of tree loss has gone up but the rate of tree loss has gone up by but the rate of tree loss has gone up by 43%. the otherfigures but the rate of tree loss has gone up by 43%. the other figures coming out, for example, the brazilian amazon deforestation rose by 88% in june compared to the month last year and that is not including the impact of the most recent burning so it is really eye—opening figures. the plans and forests is not as wet as it used to be. —— the plans. as it dries it is more likely to catch fire. it is a vicious cycle. the interesting part as well is the fact that the cost of protecting the forest is a lot less than the cost of shifting to a low carbon emission... but the private sector is not getting involved and supporting it. which does not make
5:53 am
financial sense in that respect. supporting it. which does not make financial sense in that respectm is depressing let's move onto something that can have a little bit ofa something that can have a little bit of a laugh. an accident with a pilot's coffee. the pilot did not put it in the area where it is meant to be point. it kept onto the controls —— spilt. there was smoke... was the actual smoke! 0h, my goodness. that is frightening. diversions cost between 10000 and 80,000 and i imagine the passengers on board were not to keen. can you imagine the pilot over the intercom, awfully sorry, had a little spillage. a technical problem and we have to go back. depending on the
5:54 am
size of the aircraft, 10,000 or 80,000. have you spelt hot liquid way you should not have! not as bad as this. tell us if you have had workplace accidents we can have a laugh about not very funny for the passengers on the plane who had to be diverted back to where they started from. fiona, thank you for taking us through the papers. much more to come. you can also keep up—to—date on the website. and you can reach me on twitter as well. we will be back with the headlines shortly. bye for now. hello there. over the last couple of days,
5:55 am
the remnants of two different ex—tropical weather systems have been in charge of our weather. first we had the leftovers of what was hurricane dorian passing to the north of the uk. we saw outbreaks of rain and brisk winds and during thursday, it was ex—tropical storm gabriel that moved through. not much left of it. just a stripe of cloud moving southwards on a frontal system and as that cold front moves away from the south on friday, and high pressure builds in behind, we will be left with a lot of fine weather, good spells of sunshine, but a significantly fresher feel. humid air that has been associated with that ex—tropical storm being pushed out into the near continent. we start off with quite a lot of cloud in the southern counties of england and the channel islands and a bit of rain but that will clear quite quickly and then a lot of sunshine and dry for the majority. it will be windy in scotland but further south, the winds light. however, in the fresher air, temperatures will be a little bit lower.
5:56 am
top temperatures of 20—21 degrees for plymouth, for cardiff, for london. more like 17 for aberdeen. through friday night, temperatures will dip away. particularly down towards the south, where winds will remain light. further north, more in the way of a breeze and more cloud in across northern ireland and scotland, and some rain pushing back in towards the far north—west. the overnight lows seeing one or two spots down towards the south could get down to around 3 or 4 degrees. high pressure still in charge for most of us as we go into saturday morning, but notice frontal systems trying to squash in towards the north—west, bringing some outbreaks of rain and also some pretty strong winds. now, much of the rain on saturday is likely to be confined to the northern and western parts of scotland. a bit more cloud into northern ireland and the far north of england. further south, once again, a lot of sunshine. those temperatures creeping up in southern parts — 22 or 23 degrees. always cooler and fresher
5:57 am
across the north where it will be windy, particularly windy on saturday night through the far north of scotland. then into sunday, it looks like this frontal system will try to push a bit further south but uncertainty as to how far it will get. maybe some patchy rain into northern england and north wales, for example. to the north of the front, something fresher and to the south on sunday, we could get up to 25 degrees. but looks like all of us getting into fresher air for the start of the new working week. however, with high pressure in charge, it will be largely dry.

good morning. welcome to breakfast with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. 0ur headlines today: "not obeying the law must surely be a non—starter" — a blunt warning to borisjohnson from outgoing speaker, john bercow over the prime minister's pursuit of a no—deal. the only form of brexit which we will have, whenever that might be, will have, whenever that might be, will be a brexit that the house of commons has explicitly endorsed. domestic violence killings in the uk reach a five—year high, contributing to the rise in knife crime. it's catwalk time. as london fashion week gets under
