that you all the pain and discomfort that you had during that time comes back to your —— rowed. and you think, you know, there's a reason why i was so keen to get off that boat last time stop sometimes you were side on, you would certainly capsize and the waves and you would get completely splashed. so there is a humbling thing about being that small and huge ocean that is so violent, so powerful. on the problem is it is the drake passage. so you've got the pacific, the atlantic, the southern ocean, meeting for a very narrow chokepoint, and all this bad weather just comes. but it is the cold. the cold has this element of making you wa nt to cold has this element of making you want to give up. it gives an element of psychologically, when you haven't had much sleep and when you hear that pattern of them saying jamie, ten minutes, you want to just curl up ten minutes, you want to just curl up in ten minutes, you want to just curl upina ten minutes, you want to just curl up in a bowl and ten minutes, you want to just curl up in a bowland go ten minutes, you want to just curl up in a bowl and go to sleep, but you can't. you just have to keep going. and we'll be taking a second in—depth look at the papers with our reviewers, sonia sodha and giles kenningham. that is coming up after the headlines at 11:30pm.
11:31 pm
iam sure i am sure there are many farmers hoping for dry weather. high—pressure is in the forecast but we're not sure how long it will stick around. recently it has been low pressure bringing wind and rain. that low pressure is all that is left of storm at brendan. this weather front all that is left of the wet and windy weather that we saw earlier on tuesday. some rain to clear away from south—eastern parts of england and then the sun will be out. a few showers in the breeze. most of the showers in the north—west towards scotland. the snow level is rising but frequent showers here and it will be windy here as well. elsewhere, breezy. not as windy as it has been. certainly for southern parts of the uk, it is cooler and the northern areas, not quite as chilly. another wasted —— weather system is arriving as we head into thursday. a low pressure system winding its way up together with the weather fronts. for many eastern areas, it could be a dry day
11:32 pm
with some sunshine, increasing cloud and out of the west, the cloud could be thickening up. where was he rain arriving with wind speaking up through the irish sea and into parts of scotland. —— wind picking up. double figures for many parts of the uk. the weather front will bring another dollop of rain and strong winds and will sweep away overnight. a few weather fronts on the scene on friday. they are focusing the showers into bands of showers so it isa showers into bands of showers so it is a day of sunshine, it is a day of showers. very windy across the far north of scotland and otherwise the winds are lighter once again to end the week. these temperatures, six degrees also over the northern half of the uk. still potentially double figures for the south—east of england. once the showers build away, we have this area of high pressure arriving from the atlantic. that is the high pressure i was talking about. that will stick around for a while. we still have cooler winds, stronger winds,
11:33 pm
blowing across scotland and northern ireland, northern england. they will be sunshine and if you showers, maybe wintry. elsewhere should be great —— dry and temperatures close to six and eight degrees. a frost could start on saturday morning and also sunday morning and that is because the high pressure is becoming more dominant. always hanging on to stronger winds in scotland, even on sunday. but it looks like it will be dry for many parts of the country after a chilly start, it should be quite a chilly day. it is milder in the far north—west of scotland. this is the jetstrea m north—west of scotland. this is the jetstream pattern as we head into the early part of next week and with that pattern and that undulation, so we see an area of high pressure. that will be dominant for the first half of the week as a strengthening jet moves across the atlantic. the early pa rt jet moves across the atlantic. the early part of next week, monday, tuesday, perhaps into wednesday, for
11:34 pm
much of the country it should be dry. maybe not quite so frosty. from wednesday onwards, with that stronger jetstream wednesday onwards, with that strongerjetstream propagating across the atlantic, our weather goes more zonal and by that i mean it gets more changeable. the winds start to pick up, they will be sunshine and showers interspersed with bands of rain. it changes in the high pressure doesn't look like it will last. if the is further north, it may last a little bit longer. we are from wednesday, ins
11:35 pm
hello. this is bbc news with ben bland. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first, the headlines. the governement has agreed a rescue deal for flybe, one of the biggest regional airlines in europe, in order to keep the company operating. ministers say they'll review air passenger duty, and the news was welcomed by staff. absolutely ecstatic, yeah, i'm really happy, for myself, and my partner works for flybe so yeah, it's really, really good news for everybody. but the prospect of cutting air taxes on flying has angered some climate campaigners who say it is not consistent with the government strategy. cutting air passenger duty isjust going to make aviation relatively cheaper compared to other forms of transport. it is absolutely the opposite of what we need to be doing. the death of this teenage girl 17 years ago, features in a devastating review
11:36 pm
of child sex abuse in greater manchester. the report says many children were failed by the authorities, and many still are. i want to say that i'm personally disgusted that these children were not cared for and the awful abuse they suffered. i am committed to doing all that we can to ensure that they receive the justice today that they were denied 15 years ago. placing bets using a credit card will not be allowed from the middle of april, to try to reduce problem gambling. and wildfires such as those in australia could become common in other parts of the world by the end of the century, according to scientists, if global temperatures continue to rise. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be
11:37 pm
bringing us tomorrow. with me are sonia sodha, chief leader writer at the observer and the political commentator and former head of press under david cameron, giles kenningham. welcome giles kenningham. to you both and thank you very welcome to you both and thank you very much for being with us. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the financial times leads with london, paris and berlin stepping closer to scrapping the 2015 nuclear agreement with iran. the metro has a story about a love island contestant who has reportedly quit the show after three days. the guardian leads with an exclusive report accusing the government of failing to pass on the details of thousands of foreign criminal convictions to their home eu countries. the mirror calls for a ban on trophy hunting, with stars including sir david jason and liam gallagher backing its campaign. the daily express leads on borisjohnson‘s plea for a public fundraising campaign to allow big ben to chime as britain
11:38 pm
leaves the eu. and the times says boris johnson plans to restore the conservatives reputation as the party of law and order by setting up a cross—whitehall taskforce on criminal gangs. the big story is flybe tonight. 100 billion pound rescue. not without controversy. there are two sets of people not happy with this idea the government will reduce —— review air passenger duty. it is a tax on all flights which is important green tax so environmental groups are unhappy and say it is exactly a step in the wrong direction, we should be looking to increase tax on flying as a form of transport because of the
11:39 pm
impact it has on the environment and then you also have william walsh, a chief executive of the company who owns british airways being cloke —— quoted. not as a prize he is unhappy saying it is a blatant misuse of public funds. flybe operates —— operates one in four domestic flights in the uk but some of those roots are serving parts of the country like cornwall, for example, where there are not great rail links to get to somewhere like manchester so if you are a business person and looking to get around the country quickly, the argument goes, we really need those roots for regional connectivity, so says flybe. a lot of tourists use them to get around andi of tourists use them to get around and i really don't think it should be used as a whole stack —— wholesale review of passenger duty. there were one or two routes operated by flybe weather does need to bea operated by flybe weather does need to be a universal service obligation like have with trains. there needs to bea like have with trains. there needs to be a route. a domestic flights
11:40 pm
are certainly not the answer in general to get around the country andi general to get around the country and i think environmental groups are right to be concerned. we have got to sort our railways out which are quite woeful. they do go to places. this whole point about johnson talking about levelling up. rebalancing the economy and reaching out to these parts of the country that fill remote, quite important. the issues here, is it staying execution or is he staving off the inevitable? execution or is he staving off the inevitable ? what will execution or is he staving off the inevitable? what will happen next? this is a dilemma. you worked under david cameron. this is a dilemma for all governments. if a company is failing, at what point does the government intervene. you saw it with thomas cook. he decided to let it failand with thomas cook. he decided to let it fail and now they are giving it a stay of execution. is it a sustainable business model? the other issue here, flybe accounts for 2500 jobs so there are huge
11:41 pm
implications in terms of what happens. other governments might have thought, well, it is thinking, let it sink. s absolute levels of it is whether they can come up with a solution in the meantime but yes. no easy a nswe rs . solution in the meantime but yes. no easy a nswers. o nto solution in the meantime but yes. no easy answers. onto the daily telegraph. the continuing saga of harry and meghan. it continues to go on. the telegraph says they have had a look at the courts papers in the case in the mail on sunday. they said that meghan‘s father may testify against her. that is right. meghan markle has chosen to sue the mail on sunday over the publication ofa mail on sunday over the publication of a private letter that she sent her father which, of a private letter that she sent herfather which, and of a private letter that she sent her father which, and she says the publication of that letter has breached her privacy. towards the end of last year, she took a very explosive decision to sue the mail on sunday. good on her, i say. it is good to test these things in court. but the telly the —— daily telegraph
11:42 pm
and a couple of other plate —— places have had their hands on the court documents and it sounds like thomas markle, herfather, may be prepared to give evidence against her which would be completely unprecedented. it would lead to a com plete unprecedented. it would lead to a complete tabloid feeding frenzy, i think, and we have already seen that happen. we have seen it happen today, i think, happen. we have seen it happen today, ithink, with happen. we have seen it happen today, i think, with prince harry and meghan. it could be quite u nfortu nate. and meghan. it could be quite unfortunate. there are real questions to be asked around the publication of this letter in the first place. it does really feel like the tabloids are kind of almost exploiting this man to sort of make this family feud public and i am really not sure it is in the public interest at all. i think it is just sort of subjective gossip. a lot of people have quoted the queen, well, not quoted the queen but that whole idea of never explain, never complain and whether it is right for
11:43 pm
any member of the royal family to ta ke any member of the royal family to take kind of legal action against a newspaper. is that generally whatever the rights and wrongs or ins and outs, is generally a good yes to deal with it on a case—by—case basis. yes to deal with it on a case-by-case basis. what you have seen with harry and meghan, they have ta ken seen with harry and meghan, they have taken on being unlimited will hostile towards the press. they don't like it and they are getting on the front foot. is this policy sustainable? on the front foot. is this policy sustainable ? they are on the front foot. is this policy sustainable? they are public figures and you have backdrop of harry and william and diana. people still blame the death of her mother on the press. frankly, idon't blame the death of her mother on the press. frankly, i don't think this strategy is remotely sustainable. it has got to be a lot more subtle, light touch. you deal with stuff on a case—by—case basis. going consta ntly a case—by—case basis. going constantly to walk, i don't think they will win. you can see why they are so angry about it and it is not actually the first time. william and kate took a french magazine to court over publications of topless
11:44 pm
pictures... there is precedent, ok. yes. that takes us onto the mail's, thatis yes. that takes us onto the mail's, that is the headline as well. markle versus markle. they have a picture of meghan in a canadian highway. —— hideaway. there is a thought that they will get more privacy over there. she has emotional connections with the country... they had a nice six holiday. less intrusive and they feel at home. this is where they are going to plan a future. the whole question here is, at the moment, they are trying to have their cake and eat it. they want to have one foot in in terms of getting some public money while still being private figures. i think they should be all one way or the other. the
11:45 pm
issue with this, fundamentally, i would support the principles, the execution behind this whole announcement, a pr campaign has been poorly planned. it feels like it was rushed. it felt like it was going to leg and subsequently you feel like this has happened. you would like to see a slimmed down monarchy, wouldn't you ? see a slimmed down monarchy, wouldn't you? i think having a monarchy at all, selected by birthright, is quite anachronistic ina birthright, is quite anachronistic in a modern society anyway. here in britain, we have this full, fat monarchy. subsidised by the public to cut resident —— cut ribbons. supporters would say they are value for money and they bring in tourists... yeah, there are lots of other celebrity patrons of charities so not to sort of take away from the good work that they do but do we really need such a big, large—scale monarchy? it is getting smaller already. prince andrew... well, he has had to take a backseat and
11:46 pm
rightly given the very serious allegations. the others are going to have to work harder. the interesting thing about this story is actually, prince charles has always seen a slimmed down monarchy as being key to the institution survival and he has talked about it for about the last decade. the irony of this fallout and rift between duck buckingham palace and harry and meghan is we are taking the monarchy in the direction that prince charles would have liked anyway. i think good luck to them. i agree with charles, you have got to make a decision. either you are subsidised by the taxpayer and you are a working royal or you are taking a step back, a private citizen, not taking that money. they have £30 million of wealth between them, they can probably do want to make money. she is a successful actress. this is an awkward transition phase but they need to move quickly in breaking
11:47 pm
free from the formalities of the royals and give up their titles and give up their rent—free residents. quick footnote, it has emerged she wasn't on the line for that summit and sandringham where their future was being talked about. it was thought she would join in on a conference call but she didn't. it will add fuel to the fire that she has been sidelined, this perception that she has been the driving force behind the new approach to what is going on. and they got married, what, 18 months ago, so it has been a very quick process of becoming part of the establishment to leaving it. just talk us through the ft‘s main story, about iran and britain, france and germany, all getting closer to ditching the iran nuclear accord. yes, seemingly they are saying that this could ultimately lead to the re— imposition of un sanctions on the republic. obviously the backdrop is the killing of this iranian
11:48 pm
commander by the us, the one that britain was caught on the back foot. borisjohnson britain was caught on the back foot. boris johnson didn't know britain was caught on the back foot. borisjohnson didn't know about this, came back and they have been trying to lower the temperature down subsequently on this. it feels like it has calmed down a bit, but probably temporarily, and this situation feels very, very dicey and shakyin situation feels very, very dicey and shaky ina situation feels very, very dicey and shaky in a very unstable part of the world. lets go on to the guardian, this is an exclusive, they say, about britain failing to alert european union to about 75,000 criminals. this is a really significant story, so normally what happens when an eu country convicts, their court system convicts, somebody of a serious crime, they would let the air you country that they are from no. so if the criminal once they are out ofjail tries to travel home, the country sort of knows who they are or can keep track of them. what has happened here is that britain has failed to alert eu
11:49 pm
countries. i think it is around 75,000 criminals. it is a huge number, and it has been going on over a period of time. and my colleagues at the guardian who posted this story have seen documents which suggest that the home office is fully aware of this and it has been going on since 2012. they just and it has been going on since 2012. theyjust didn't face up to it because they thought it would be too embarrassing. —— 'fess up to it. it is embarrassing to have this break on the front page of the guardian two we e ks on the front page of the guardian two weeks before we are due to leave the european union. it is absolutely key, relationship with the eu, on things like security, and liaising with international policing, security, at with international policing, security, et cetera, intelligence sharing. this is not a great story to be happening, because we are going to be relying partly on the goodwill of the eu to come up with some of these agreements and sign up to these agreements. it is not a good thing to happen two weeks before we leave the eu. speaking of two weeks before we leave the eu, will the bongs of big bend ring out
11:50 pm
on 31 january at 11pm? —— big ben. borisjohnson was talking about this in his interview. he said britons may be able to bunker bob for a big ben bong. he has called for a public fundraising campaign —— bung a bob. and it will cost £500,000. and mps have said that taxpayers shouldn't bankroll this and there is call for a crowdsourcing campaign for them to ring at 11 p.m.. would you support that? i think it is fine, ring at 11 p.m.. would you support that? ithink it is fine, i am ring at 11 p.m.. would you support that? i think it is fine, i am not sure if i'm going to dip into my pocket, but if people want to do it, it is fine. it is not for us to tell people how to spend their money, but £500,000 is an awful lot of money. there are people sleeping homeless on britain's streets. if you are
11:51 pm
thinking about giving money to this, why don't you give it to a charity like crisis or shelter instead. the reason it costs £500,000 apparently as they would have to put in a temporary floor in order to ring the land temporary floor in order to ring the l and then remove the temporary floor. —— ring the bell. l and then remove the temporary floor. -- ring the bell. it is a historic moment, there are some people who feel positively about it, some people who feel negatively about it, but it should be marked. but the prime ministers asking taxpayers... not taxpayers, but people, to voluntarily cough up £500,000, he should be asking them to donate to charity given that his government have led to an increase in rough sleeping. the express says it will be celebrating our blizzard freedom from the confines of russell's and will secure a great and new chapter in the history of this nation. do you really need big ben to bong? can't you set up a loudspeaker and have a recording? that would be my argument, rather
11:52 pm
than spending £500,000 on it. maybe he should be personally funding it. we will see whether big ben rings out on that night or not. thank you very much indeed for being with us once again. 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, sonia sodha and giles kenningham. goodbye. good evening. we had five fa cup ties this evening, third round replays. all of them avoided extra time, just. league one shrewsbury scored in the 89th minute to knock out champions side bristol city. both sides wasted chances throughout the game.
11:53 pm
but defender aaron pierre came up with the winner, the only goal of the game and the goal that has secured a fourth—round tie, again at home, against the mighty liverpool. cue the customary fa cup pitch invasion. that was the one upset. both premier league sides involved this evening are through. spurs will face southampton after beating championship side middlesbrough 2—1. patrick gearey reports. this was an evening spares could have done without. the replay squeezed in after relentless run of games. still, as good hosts, they put in the mood lighting and sent out a strong team. middlesbrough came with a gift. a stray pass from tomas mejias and the perfect chance for giovani lo celso to settle any early spurs nerves. there has been criticism of tottenham this season for lacking energy, for not doing often enough what eric lamela did
11:54 pm
here. his recent career has been punctuated by injury frustration, evident in the celebration. they really ought to have been more. what a moment this would have been for the 20—year—old, his first tottenham goalflash the 20—year—old, his first tottenham goal flash before his eyes. the 20—year—old, his first tottenham goalflash before his eyes. maybe next time. he is a centre—back by trade but are right back by command, and here he did everything he could to set up his team—mate, who will never have been more thankful that he was offside. middlesbrough was somehow still in this. they hadn't lost a game in a month, and you could see that relief personified in george saville. 2—1, seven minutes to go. barrow had given themselves too much to do. tottenham added another to their collection of chances spurned, but by now the evening was over, the job done chances spurned, but by now the evening was over, thejob done —— borough. newcastle were the other premier league side in action. they were held 1—1 at rochdale just over a week ago, but victory was never in doubt at stjames this evening. they were 3—0 up whenjoelinton broke his long goal drought — only his second for the club and his first since august. they won 4—1, and will play another league one side in the fourth round,
11:55 pm
oxford united. coventry city are going to play their landlords, birmingham, after beating bristol rovers, max biamou with a couple of goals in a 3—0 win. reading stretched their unbeaten run to nine games with a 2—0 win over blackpool at bloomfield road. they will play the winner of carlisle and cardiff's replay, which takes place tomorrow night. there should have been six ties tonight, but tranmere's replay against watford was called off because of a waterlogged pitch. they will try again next thursday. the second day of qualifying for the australian open has been delayed for two hours in melbourne because of the poor air quality due to the wildfire crisis. the first tennis grand slam of the year starts next week, and organisers have been criticised for allowing qualifying to take place. world numberfive elina svitolina posted a picture of the hazardous air quality rating on social media and asked if something bad has to happen before any
11:56 pm
action is taken. slovenia's dalila jakupovic was forced to retire from her qualifier with breathing diffciulties. she suffered a coughing fit and said she was scared that she would collapse. the top seeds continue to fall at the masters snooker. the world number one and reigning championjudd trump is out. he was beaten 6—3 by shaun murphy at alexandra palace. murphy won four frames in a row to move through to the quarterfinals, where he will facejoe perry. two—time winnerjohn higgins is also through after he breezed past barry hawkins, 6—1. jack leach is heading home from england's tour of south africa to fully recover from the illnesses he has had over the last few weeks. the spinner suffered from sepsis in new zealand before christmas, and he hasn't played at all in south africa because of a bout of gastroenteritis, followed by flu.
11:57 pm
that's all the sport for now. hello there. tuesday was a very windy day across the board, including england and wales, thanks to another area of low pressure which moved up from the south. it stays quite blustery today as well, but the strongest of the winds will be across scotland, england and wales should see plenty of sunshine, with just a few showers. you can see low pressure anchored to the north of the uk, that will bring further frequent showers to scotland and northern parts of northern ireland, some of these wintry on the hills. lots of sunshine further south, but we still have the overnight weather front which will be slow to clear from the south—east. a bit of a wet start here. but eventually it will do and we should see plenty of sunshine for england and wales. one or two showers in the west stop fairly breezy, but stronger winds for scotland. lots of showers here, and these will be wintry on the higher ground. temperatures probably a few degrees up on wednesday on what we had on tuesday, the north feeling a little bit cooler than further south, at least you have the sunshine to compensate. that window
11:58 pm
a fine weather is short lived. the next area of low pressure moves in for thursday to bring another wet and windy day. you can see lots of isobars on the charts, but those i closes together further west, so it is western areas which will see the strongest of the winds. heavy rain as well northwards across much of the west of the uk. a little bit of rain just the west of the uk. a little bit of rainjust getting in the west of the uk. a little bit of rain just getting in towards the east later in the day. i could mention a very blustery day for gusts of 50 may be 60 mph across some irish seacoast into the afternoon. some of that rain will continue to be heavy as well. with the milder weather, england and wales ten to 12 degrees, but still on the cool side. scotland and northern ireland, that wet and windy weather sweeping northwards during thursday night. then we start to see more of a westerly or north—westerly chicken for friday, a few weather fronts bringing in showers along the spells of rain. i think friday is a transitional phase from the wet and windy weather something more settled which will arrive from the weekend. we will start to see a bit more sunshine for scotland and northern
11:59 pm
ireland, just one or two showers. most of the showers will be across england and wales. a bit of sunshine in between. notice the temperatures, 5-9d. it in between. notice the temperatures, 5—9d. it will be turning cooler. and that you have it, the blue colours invading later friday and into the weekend. but with high pressure building in, it should be fine and settled for saturday and sunday. so lighter winds for many of us. more in the way of sunshine, but it will be noticeably colder, with the returned overnight frosts. —— return to overnight frosts. tsai
