1:35 pm
there has never really been much diversity in the sport, not only with the drivers but within teams. engineers, mechanics, team bosses. i think it would be good to see some more diversity in formula i because it will attract more people to watch the sport, as lewis did when he first came into this sport back in 2007. the fixtures are out for the new scottish premiership season. champions celtic, who are chasing an unprecedented tenth league title in a row, begin at home to hamilton on 2nd august. there will be no crowds, and two full rounds of games on friday nights in october and november to give scotland's national team more time to prepare for their european championship play—offs. there won't be a winter break, to allow last season's cup competitions to be completed. shorter seasons in the divisions below the top tier get under way in october. here's the first round of games.

1:40 pm
promote physical distancing, and new perspex screens. our hospitality and tourism businesses are working hard tourism businesses are working hard to prepare for this reopening, so i wa nt to ta ke to prepare for this reopening, so i want to take the opportunity to thank everyone in this actor who is playing their part. i know how incredibly hard and sipping over the last few months, but your efforts and patience are hugely appreciated. the government is determined to do all we can to make this reopening a success. we know that implementing some of the safety and physical distancing measures can create specific challenges and, of course, reduce the number of people that can be in these places at any given time. that is why we want to give businesses a bit more freedom in their use of outdoor space. today, we have taken an additional step by asking local authorities to put in place a temporary relaxation of planning controls so that it is easierfor planning controls so that it is easier for businesses to use public space. amongst other things, that could provide them with additional space for physically distance seating. that should help businesses in adapting to these new requirements and i hope it will further ensure that should help
1:41 pm
businesses in adapting to these new requirements and d i hope it will further ensure that hospitality in wales the "stay local" requirement, advising people to remain within five miles of their home, has ended today. the first minister, mark drakeford, outlined how the latest scientific evidence on infections from coronavirus in wales had informed the decision to continue the easing of lockdown restrictions. reopen in a safe and physically over the last four review cycles, we will look closely at a number of factors which tell us how much headroom we have and how that headroom can be used. the factors that tell us how much freedom we have include the latest scientific and medical evidence about the transmission of coronavirus in wales, the testing positivity figures, that is to say the proportion of tests that we carried out which are returned as being positive. at the peak of
1:42 pm
coronavirus, 45% of all tests processed by nhs wales laboratories we re processed by nhs wales laboratories were positive. by the end ofjune, that had fallen to 3.5%. we look as well at new confirmed cases, the number of people dying from the disease and access deaths. we look as well at the number of people admitted to hospital with coronavirus and the number of people treated and critical care units. when those figures are heading in the right direction, that creates new headroom for us to go on lifting lockdown restrictions. but having headroom is one thing and using it as another and there are a number of factors you have to take into account in deciding whether and how that headroom can be used. those factors include the ability of the nhs to respond to the virus. the nhs
1:43 pm
has to respond to many other important demands that come through its door every day and we have to find out how much room there is for the nhs to respond to coronavirus. we look at how our test, trace, protect system is working. we look at compliance with the regulations to date. the more we all stick to what we are being asked to do, the more of that headroom becomes available for us to use. where compliance folds away, then our ability to do new things falls away, as well. we look, of course, at patterns of the disease, for example, the way in which multi—agency teams are responding to the three outbreaks and incidents linked to meat and food processing pla nts linked to meat and food processing plants in anglesey, wrexham and merthyr tydfil, and because we
1:44 pm
continue in wales to lift the restrictions in a careful, step—by—step way, we are able to look at the impact of the changes we have already made and what we are learning from them. that final point is at the heart of the welsh approach to easing lockdown. we take the advice we have taken from the world health organization and the scientific advisory group for emergencies very seriously. both have underlined the importance of taking that step by step approach to easing restrictions. and because we do it that way, we have introduced changes gradually and progressively, learning from what we have done to enable us to go further as the conditions allow. and during the three—week period, which is concluding at the end of this week, we have introduced one major change every monday. that has given us an
1:45 pm
opportunity to review and learn from experience. on the 22nd ofjune, shops reopened. on the 29th ofjune, all pupils return to school ahead of the summer holidays. and today, the requirement to stay local has been lifted. 70,000 peoiple in the north western spanish region of galacia have had a second lockdown imposed on them following a spike in cases of coronavirus. the move — which started at midnight local time — will initially last for five days. gatherings will be limited to 10 people. face masks will be mandatory outdoors. it's the second region in spain to introduce a local lockdown after restrictions came into force in parts of catalonia at the weekend. from spain, our correspondent guy hedgecoe reports. the area of a marina on the atlantic coast will be cut off from the rest of spain. movement will be allowed in the zone, which has 70,000 inhabitants, but police will prevent people from entering or leaving without a specific region.
1:46 pm
with 106 new cases of virus in the area, the authorities say this as a precautionary measure which is expected to last five days. translation: detecting these outbreaks early proves that our health system is much readier than in march, and it also shows that we need to learn to live with the virus. we have to remain vigilant and keep social distancing. over the weekend, the regional government of catalonia, in the north—east of spain, put the country of segria into isolation due to a spike in coronavirus cases. two weeks ago, spain's government lifted a strict national lockdown on the grounds that the pandemic was under control but since then, there have been a number of new, mostly small outbreaks. passengers entering england from dozens of countries will no longer have to quarantine from the 10th of july. however, portugal is one of the countries that isn't on the list. the government says the decision is based on scientific assessments, but the portuguese foreign minister has described it as absurd. portugal's tourism board president, luis araujo, said he was surprised and shocked
1:47 pm
by the decision. the first was a surprise and shock, the second was disappointment. the response with the pandemic here in portugal was and iias exceptional, good, timely control measures, a population that complies with regulations, massive testing, so we were surprised with the decision. we know the situation here in portugal, and sometimes reality is quite different from what the decision portrays. we are one of the countries that test more in europe, the first was a surprise and shock, the second was disappointment. the six european countries that test more, more than 1.2 million tests in portugal, more than 10% of the population. that is the strategy being followed by the government and the institutions to track as many situations and as many cases as possible. we want to fight this together,
1:48 pm
this is the way to fight, and the institutions to track as many situations and as many cases as possible. we want to fight this together, this is the way to fight, and we think it is not a matter of just focusing on one item or one statistic. you have to see the overall picture of the situation inside the country. and the overall picture is excellent, everything is working smoothly, the hospitals have almost 60% capacity. so everything is moving very smoothly, and the situation is completely different from what this decision portrays, for sure. italy has given permission for a charity—run ship to disembark 180 meighty migrants rescued in the mediterranean after a stand—off lasting more than a week. the ocean viking, which had also sought permission to land at malta, will now head to a port in sicily, where the migrants will be held in quarantine. aru na iyengar reports. relief and joy from migrants on hearing their cramped conditions may soon be over. these migrants from pakistan, north africa, eritrea and nigeria were picked up afterfleeing libya in four separate rescues
1:49 pm
by the ocean viking, operated by the french charity sos mediterranee. they include 25 children, mostly unaccompanied, and two women, one of whom is pregnant. they have been on the ship for over a week, with tensions rising. fights have broken out and two migrants threw themselves into the sea, but were later rescued. the situation was so bad that ship operators declared a state of emergency on friday. an italian medical team were sent on board to test the migrants for covid—19 and monitor the situation. the ocean viking is due to dock in sicily, where the migrants will be transferred to the moby zaza, a ship charted by the italian government, for 1h days of quarantine. according to the international organization for migration, more than 100,000 migrants tried to cross the mediterranean last
