1:31 pm
get today is the weather we should get for the next a0 days which judging by this picture wouldn't be too bad. for most of us. however, i suspect we won't make it to the a0 day, we might not make it to four. things will change this week, its will turn wetter, much windier later in the week. you can see serious areas of cloud. waiting to make their move. not able to approach us just yet, because of this area of high pressure keep things fine and settled through the rest of today. most of us dry, there is just the small chance of the odd shower in western area, and we have got extra cloud in east anglia, the south—east into the midlands, that is likely to break up to some extent through the rest of the day. cooler for some of the eastern area, further west the temperatures for some getting up into the middle 20s. this evening and tonight it will stay largely dry, some clear spell, one or two mist and fog patches perhaps. 0ne small change, cloud and the odd splash of rain in scotland later in

1:33 pm
the changes accelerate. this first frontal system moves through on thursday, a bit of rain with that. that. the next one for friday, could bring not only wet but pretty windy weather so as we approach the end of the week thing also turn more u nsettled. the week thing also turn more unsettled. turns cooler as well. so much for a0 days of dry weather, we may not make it to four. back to you. a reminder of our top story. jubilant scenes at the oval as fans of all ages celebrate england's dramatic world cup win. that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. good afternoon. it's 1.30pm and here's your latest sports news.

1:46 pm
a long period of time. people have been through individual stuff as well as a team. to now say we have won the world cup is special. how do you deal with that pressure? 0bviously, you deal with that pressure? obviously, the main aim, the main focus was to win this world cup and that has been the same case. how have you dealt with the pressure? the pressure comes with the pressure we put on ourselves. the pressure we put on ourselves to improve over the last four years, the pressure we put on ourselves to get better, push each other into performances we have done over the last period. yesterday was a completely different pressure because it has not really been a 350 power score, it has been 290. we had a little bit of luck but that helps because we played the type of

trouble trying to access that capital. they get typically 50% less funding than male, so that needs to shift, that ease of access to capital needs to change. you see in needs to change, how will it change, what concrete steps need to be taken? there needs more funding, essentially. we need to open that up and make it more accessible. targeted funding at female founders. it needs a shift in terms of making it more accessible and has not happened to date. why is london lagging behind new york and san francisco? it is not a competition, it is an index, a baseline. london has at laps, it is performing consistently well, but we are seeing other cities upgrading or improving where they had been in the past. across those five indicators i have mentioned, technology, markets capital and culture, those cities
1:52 pm
have made improvements. london continues to perform, but these cities have made significant changes, and that is why they have increased on the index. thank you so much forjoining us. thank you. in other business news, the spanish airline vueling is the least punctual major airline flying out of the uk. it's flights were delayed by an average of 31 minutes last year, according to the civil aviation authority. thomas cook also did badly, with average delays of 2a minutes, followed by wizz air on 23 minutes. the government is hiring new trade negotiators to help with brexit. it's offering training schemes to applicants from all backgrounds to help secure deals for when we leave the eu. the mathematician and computer scientist, alan turing will feature on the new £50 bank note which goes into circulation in 2021. almost 1,000 people were nominated to feature on the new note.

1:54 pm
the duke and duchess chatting to some of the hundreds of fans who'd gathered in leicester square for the premiere. then it was time for real—life royalty to meet showbiz royalty, led by beyonce, who voices a character in the film, and her husband jay z, as well as other members of the cast and the team behind the movie. even though some of the reviews have been less than spectacular, there's still a huge amount of anticipation for the film because the original lion king is particularly loved by audiences who went to see it in such numbers it became disney's biggest film of the 20th century. everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. this time around, the story's been brought to life using computer—generated characters and backgrounds, but has kept the familiar characters from the original, including the comedic pair timon and pumbaa. let me see what we're dealing with here.
1:55 pm
it's a lion! run for your life! hey, timon! timon, wait, wait, wait! timon, wait! it's a little lion! it gets bigger. me and billy eichner, who plays timon, did all of our recording together, which was a rare opportunity, and i think you can really tell. we were able to improvise and respond to each other in real time, and i think it gives our stuff an incredibly naturalistic feel, which is awesome. run away, simba, and never return. because of the affection so many have for the story, as well as the massive box office of the original, the head of disney, currently hollywood's most successful studio, knows there's a lot riding on getting the movie just right. this is what i would call one of our crown jewels, one of the most beloved films, one of the most successful, one of the most enduring. and, yes, i think there's a lot of pressure on us, but we feel great about the movie thatjon favreau and the team made. you have lot of fans, you don't want to let them down,
1:56 pm
especially the ones who grew up watching the animated film. you have the cast, the new audience, so there's a lot to balance to get this right, but i'm happy with how hard everyone worked and the wonderful interpretations new people brought to the roles and to the songs. # it's the circle of life!# disney have had a lot of success in recent years updating animated classics, like beauty and the beast and aladdin, for the 21st century. they'll be hoping that the lion king will be maintaining that winning streak. lizo mzimba, bbc news, leicester square. now it's time for a look at the weather. good afternoon. as the folklore goes, the weather we get today is the way that we will get for the next a0 days. in shropshire, that will mean a0 more days like this. probably not too many complaints
