makes no it's for the people. it makes no sense. we are here for the people. of course, if it's one game, two ins, ican of course, if it's one game, two ins, i can understand, but if it's longer, the reason why you're a journalist is to write for the people. i play, we play for the people. i play, we play for the people. if the people cannot be here, there there's no sense. city due to play real madrid in the champions league next tuesday the 17th. we'll have to see where we are in a wea k‘s we'll have to see where we are in a weak‘s time. taking it day by day, really. england lionesses are in texas ahead of their final match at the shebelieves cup, they play spain tomorrow night. they beat japan last time out after an opening defeat to the hosts the usa. let's cross live to frisco, just on the ouskirts of dallas, our sports correspondent katie gornall is there. katie, england had chances to win by more than the one late goal, they'll want to be more ruthless againt spain? definitely, that was something phil
6:46 pm
neville said to me after that match, they created chances but didn't take them, they're they created chances but didn't take them, they‘ re disappointed they created chances but didn't take them, they're disappointed with that. they took the reintroduction with ellen white with 20 minutes to go to find a cutting edge and deliver a much—needed win. their form had been poor going into that win, they'd had six defeats in nine, so win, they'd had six defeats in nine, so that win has given them, i think, a much—needed confidence boost coming into this game. but what they need now is momentum. they haven't had that for some time, they have won back—to—back games sincejune, so won back—to—back games sincejune, so they want a strong finish to this tournament. neville has said that going home with six points would be considered a success whether or not they go home with the trophy. if they go home with the trophy. if they lose against spain, i think pressure will certainly ramp up on phil neville, though we don't get the sense that his job is in any way under threat, but certainly there is a lot riding on this match against spain reputation —wise. i think six points would do it, that's our aim coming here,
6:47 pm
i think six points would do it, that's ouraim coming here, we i think six points would do it, that's our aim coming here, we know we want to get those points on the board, and as you say, talk about england winning games again. it was a failure, i think as i said before, touching on the prices that we have, touching on the prices that we have, to euros 2021, the younger players have come in and done so well, i think they haven't looked out of their depth at all and that's a pleasing thing for england, there's beena pleasing thing for england, there's been a lot of change in the squad, i suppose, even if you look from the world cup to now, there's a lot of new faces, but i think we just have to keep concentrating on what we are doing and really had internet spain game and get a win. but ultimately put ina game and get a win. but ultimately put in a good performance. another double—header to look forward to, the usa should dispatch the japanese tomorrow and win that cupa third the japanese tomorrow and win that cup a third time? i think that's the expected outcome, the usa arejust a winning machine because the back of a30 winning machine because the back of a 30 game unbeaten run at the moment, so they will be heavy favourites going into this game with japan, who has lost both their games
6:48 pm
at the shebelieves cup so far. but they've been really made to work for it, the usa, in their last game against spain, it was the 87th minute before their midfield rock managed to find a breakthrough, i think that underlined really the challenge for england tomorrow. spain, though they are the lowest ranked side in this tournament, 30th according to the fifa ranking, are widely viewed as the most improved side in women's football. they've done a greatjob so far, been moulded into real contenders i think for the euro 2021 championship, and earlier today phil neville was talking spain up as a top five site. spain will look for us to a statement performance and if that finishes in a draw, it will mean that the trophy gets handed to the usa without them even having kicked both here in dallas. many thanks indeed. let's have a look at some of the day's other headlines. katie 0rmerod has become the first british snowboarder
6:49 pm
to win a world cup title. she finished on the podium in all four of this season's slopestyle events to top the standings and was given the title today when the final meeting in the czech republic was cancelled because of coronavirus. the former england wing chris ashton says he is shocked at the manner of his departure from sale last week. his contract was terminated and though ashton says there was a disagreement with the coaching staff he says he wasn't aware of any problem. he has nowjoined harlequins. ireland's kevin o'brien hit a six off the final ball of a t20 super—over to beat afghanistan in india. they still lost the three match series 2—1. new york look set to become the first american side to play in rugby league's challenge cup when theyjoin the competition next season. the games authorities say they are in advance talks with the club, who hope to join toronto and ottawa in joining the league the year after. new york announced their bid in liverpool today, which will become their uk base. adam wild was there.
6:50 pm
the port of liverpool has witnessed the start of many greatjourneys, plenty heading to new york was today, another launch, but this time, it seems, new york is coming here. negotiations are at an advanced stage for a new york rugby league to enter the game's oldest knockout competition in 2021. new york playing in the challenge cup, but dream is now closer than ever. but before that, they need a team and some fans. how do you go about building a rugby league club? in an area where there is no great rugby league interest? it's easy to say there is no interest, but i've been over to the states before, and had been to watch games in the pubs come in the irish pubs and australian bars and whatnot, there is a massive fan base out there for us, the ideas we will put on a show of what we can do and what we can cheese and certainly grow with the
6:51 pm
challenge cup, with the australian teams and international teams coming to play against us, and that's something we can prove we deserve to be in that competition. —— what we can do and what we can achieve. there is precedence in the game's north american expansion, just yesterday also announced they're joining league i, something that toronto wolfpack did not so long ago. auto announced. so can new york really did the same? —— 0ctober are joining league i. really did the same? —— 0ctober are joining league 1. americans love it, they think it's crazy, the more usual than the more they get into it. so it seemed like a big task but i don't think it is. i think he has worked hard and he has worked really hard, i don't think he will struggle. key to the deal, new york's relationship with liverpool. it's an established menu for rugby league, regular stop for it's an established menu for rugby league, regularstop forthe it's an established menu for rugby league, regular stop for the england tea m league, regular stop for the england team in the international game, and now the international club is trying
6:52 pm
to make this idiot second home. we came across the opportunity that new york were looking for a uk base for when they played their block of games every year. we felt liverpool would be a natural choice for them because the proximity to the clubs that they would be playing against a gives them a great experience for theirteam to gives them a great experience for their team to participate and stay in liverpool to do that. toronto wolfpack remained the example of what might be possible but still, starting rugby league club from scratch in an area with no real by scratch in an area with no real rugby league heritage, no players, no coach, no stadium, remains a huge undertaking, and there will be plenty of people around the world both inside and outside of the game watching new york's journey very closely. the choppy and the mersey today! that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening.
6:53 pm
good evening, you're watching bbc news. back to the coronavirus outbreak now, and in the us, the top democrat in the senate, chuck schumer, has warned america is falling far behind interesting people for the virus. president trump met senators today to discuss the outbreak and urged the americans to stay home. i think the us has done a very good job on testing. we had to change things that were done and that where nobody is fault, perhaps they wanted to do something a different way, it was a different process from the previous administration, and we did make the changes. at the testing has gone very well. when people need a test they can get a test. when professional need a test, and the need to test more people, they can get the test. it's gone really well. the biggest thing we did was stopping the inflow of people early
6:54 pm
on, that was weeks ahead of schedule, weeks ahead of whatever other people would have done, in fa ct, other people would have done, in fact, most people probably would not have done it until now, and that's made a big difference. here, were of the uk's biggest insurers has cut back on cover available in new travel insurance policies because of the outbreak. aviva says people will still be able to buy its insurance but won't be able to ad cover for travel disruption. simon converts is here with me now, major implications for travellers? it is, and it shows the cost the insurance industry can see arising out of people'stravel problems to do with the coronavirus. what happened with aviva is that they are excluding this key clause, call travel disruption, which is one of the clauses that people can resort to if they want to get costs recovered if they cancel their trip oi’ recovered if they cancel their trip or if they have to come back mid—trip and they find that they are

6:55 pm
affected by the coronavirus. and another thing that has happened this evening is another smaller, specialist insurer that covers the uk's biggest online cover of sport strips like skiing and mountaineering has put a notice up on its website saying they have a coronavirus exclusion now, and i'm concerned we will see more of this. what they say is that it is understood in this policy that insurance does not cover any loss, damage, liability or cost and repeated to or resulting from covid-i9 or repeated to or resulting from covid—19 or coronavirus. repeated to or resulting from covid-19 or coronavirus. how do they justify it? they say that insurance is designed to protect us against the unforeseen, something that they can average the cost down, and what they see now is something looming before them, they can see it's a huge cost, they can foresee that it's coming toward them, and insurers tend to exclude that sort
6:56 pm
of thing from their policies. it is important to point out, people who have already bought a policy from either, for instance, that will still be valid, it will still cover coronavirus it issues. —— but a policy from aviva. and there are other big companies which have said there are still offering pulses which cover eventualities people face as a result of travel disruption from coronavirus. —— offering policies. and this big insurer taking the step, is unlikely to affect others? the concern is not that this is welling up behind the scenes, we will see more changes from insurance companies trying to section of this cost they can see coming towards them. —— the concern is that. so, yes, we could see more to come. simon, thanks. time for a look at the weather.
6:57 pm
a wet start to the beach for some, rain tending to ease as we move through the day but left showers in its wake. every night we will see a speu its wake. every night we will see a spell of showery rain for southern coastal counties of england, to the north, dry weather and clear spells before the next rash of schar is to the north—west in the early hours. the contrast in temperatures in the night, temperatures in parts of scotla nd night, temperatures in parts of scotland close to freezing but holding up in double figures for some in the south. a chilly start across north of the uk, showers first thing, they will tend to see south and east as you go through the day. good spells of sunshine around in between and we are looking at a windy day, black circle showing the windy day, black circle showing the wind gusts, brisk south—westerly wind. temperatures, contrast, again, in the north of the uk, highs of around 6—10, more like 11—15 across the south. so higher than we would expect for the time of the year in
6:58 pm
the southern half of the uk, but that looks set to change moving into thursday. this cold front sinks south and east, bringing a spell of showery rain but also introducing a call there are mass, you can see the blue collar spreading across the map. so thursday, we are looking at a cool day across the southern half of the uk, good spells of sunshine around and the chance of some showers, particularly for northern ireland, northern england and scotland. also some spells of rain mixed in and that could fall as snow over high ground. temperatures are maximum of around 9—10. showers and spells of rain clear out towards the east as we move to friday and a ridge of high pressure keeps things fairly settled, this feature out in the west waiting in the wings. friday, we could see one or two i say showers, particularly for coastal areas through the morning, good spells of sunshine around, wouldn't through much of the day ——
6:59 pm
wind increasing through much of the day, temperatures reaching a maximum of around 11 celsius. the weekend, saturday looking fairly cloudy, some spells of rain, a band of rain pushes through the night into sunday, cleaning to sunny spells and showers. goodbye.
7:00 pm
you're watching beyond 100 days. a lockdown in new york state as coronavirus begins to take hold in the united states. the president says insurance companies will waive the cost of coronavirus testing — part one of the administration's response. the health secretary can't actually tell us how many tests have been done. but president trump says its all under control. the testing has gone very well. in italy 60 million people are threatened with fines or even jail if they travel without good reason. in the worst hit areas, doctors say they are making life and death decisions. also on the programme: globally, airlines are under immense pressure. some have been running empty flights to keep the precious slots
