pandemic, questions about how vaccines will hold up, and some will say it's better for them to be overly cautious at this stage as we continue to come out of lockdown. by continue to come out of lockdown. by all means, they can exercise some caution, but at 25% capacity, that i would say is overly cautious. they can afford to be considerably more ambitious. they could do other things with indoor elements, not offer as much food outlets or whatever it is where people tend to gather a bit more, but certainly sitting in a seat or standing out in the open next to a racetrack, that in itself is not a risk. so they can be more ambitious.— in itself is not a risk. so they can be more ambitious. impossible to redict be more ambitious. impossible to predict the _ be more ambitious. impossible to predict the future, _ be more ambitious. impossible to predict the future, the _ be more ambitious. impossible to predict the future, the premier i predict the future, the premier league chief executive wants both stadiums at the start of the new premier league season from hopeful that could happen. in your opinion, is that realistic? i

two men emerged from that break away, joe dombrowski the 29—year—old american writing for team uae and the italian veteran. it was dombrowski who had the strongest legs, while two minutes behind them, the main contenders battled each other. the day would belong to two writers, dombrowski winning his first grand tour stage and finishing 13 seconds later, good enough to put him top of the overall standings. at least for now, the race favourites are still lucky to have their day eventually, but now, the group gained a few seconds on another of the main contenders, simon yates, but at the age of 3a, denmark he is going to enjoy his time in pain, however long it lasts. drew savage, bbc news. danny care says missing out on selection for the british and irish lions has been mentally tough and affected his performance for harlequins against wasps on sunday. the 34—year—old had been told he was under consideration
6:49 pm
for the 37—man squad. but he missed out as conor murray, ali price and gareth davies were selected by warren gatland. everyone talks about the lines, i'm a bit late, oh, no, i preferto play for england. i've got come about, for england. i've got come about, for me is way more importance, but then, the feeling i had on thursday, for me, because i don't know what it's like, i wanted it so badly, and i obviously, this is my last, this will be my last... you never know. when i'm 38. so that's why it was heartbreaking for me, but at the same time, i think i tweeted about it, i could finally sleep. i couldn't sleep two nights before, i couldn't sleep two nights before, i couldn't sleep, i couldn't stop thinking about it, and i kept trying my best to just spend some family time playing with my kids and that's, and ijust kept thinking
6:50 pm
about it, let's be honest, you are still looking up at squad, there are brilliant players there. i hope they go down there and give it a proper good go because it's going to be an incredibly good tour and some amazing memories for those guys. danny kerr speaking to our rugby union correspondent. you can hear more on that on the weekly podcast on bbc sounds. staying with rugby union, more than 3000 fans will be allowed to watch the women's premier 15s final which takes place on sunday the 30th of may at kingsholm. also today london irish have announced... they're aiming to have a team in the competition from 2023. i've been speaking to fiona tomas, women's sport reporter for the daily telegraph, and started by asking her how big a boost it'll be to have fans at the final: these girls in the premier 15 have been playing without fans for i think practically all of the season, so to have fans back to my think it

6:53 pm
women's game is growing. it's heading somewhere. i think despite the challenges that we talked about that covid has presented, i think a lot of clubs certainly in the premier 15 have really upped their game this season. i think, you know, next year will be the fourth year of the premierfifteens, and to see how it is and has grown over the past three years, i think it's been really encouraging, and i want that to continue. that's all from sportsday. manchester, one, leicester city one at half—time. the only way manchester city or confirmed champions this weekend as if —— this evening as if leicester lewis. but for me and the team, that's all for now. good good evening, you are watching bbc

news. the families of ten people shot dead on the streets of west belfast during the troubles have succeeded in a 50—year battle to clear their relative's names. an emotional press conferences afternoon, we heard from some of the victims families. 44—year—old joan conley was a housewife and the mother of eight. her daughter, bree, said the parachute regiment were cowards. my cowards. my mother was no gun woman. the corners finds are clear. she was innocent. her only crime was love. her only love for her family, as she went down to make sure we were all safe. love for a stranger who she tried to help as he cried out in pain. after being shot by the army, unlike mummy, the parachute regiment only had hate in their hearts when
6:55 pm
they gunned down her and the others. they were not peacemakers. they were not brave soldiers, they were nothing but cowards. they shot my mummy, a northern ireland mother of eight from the safety of their barracks. they were cowards, they were cowards then and they are cowards now. they didn't have the courage to appear at the inquest and faceup to their crimes, they didn't have the courage to answer our questions. we deserve answers. why did they shoot my mum? why did they leave her in a field to die? what was their orders and who gave them? who helps them cover up their cowardly act? who ordered the lies to be told? this is the same regiments that's murdered innocent people in the streets of derry a few months later. they are a combat force, not peacekeepers. they have
6:56 pm
blood on their hands. they came here to wreak havoc, killing and maiming wherever they went, and then were given metals for their crimes. there regiment is a disgrace and should be disbanded. my mum's murder has never been investigated, three different soldiers made statements to say they shot my mum, none of these soldiers involved have faced prosecutions. they did not cooperate with the inquest, and they were supported by the mod. they used every dirty trick in the book to block this process. why? why? so that they can get a few extra votes in britain? shame on you, boris! no one should be above the law! we will not accept your amnesty for murderers, we will,
6:57 pm
every victim should have a right to pursue theirjustice. we will never give up, we will fight on. our children come our grandchildren will fight on, you will not win.— fight on, you will not win. speaking in belfast just _ fight on, you will not win. speaking in belfastjust short _ fight on, you will not win. speaking in belfastjust short time _ fight on, you will not win. speaking in belfastjust short time ago, - fight on, you will not win. speaking in belfastjust short time ago, and | in belfastjust short time ago, and we will have plenty more on the findings from that inquest on bbc news later in the evening. now it's time for a look at the weather with chris fawkes. hello there. another dramatic day of weather. a big thunderstorm starting off across east anglia, the midlands and wales. look at this thundercloud in shropshire, some signs of a likely storm. and then we have this. in north wales, a hailstorm kind of making things look like winter had returned here for a time. those really big thunderstorms have been pushing their way northwards across northern england, some very lively looking storms across yorkshire into the northeast as well. and as we look at the forecast this evening and overnight committees areas of heavy thundery rain are going to be pushing their way northwards into
6:58 pm
scotland. so there will be some heavy downpour is working their way overnight and still with some thunder and lightning overnight as well. eventually, the weather will become a little bit quieter further southwards, clear spells developing, and temperatures probably similar to those of last night, around six i can 7 celsius for our local. tomorrow from the low pressure has been with hud�*s for quite a few days. it is with us again. it's another unsettled day. we will see more general rain for a time pushing northwards across scotland and a greater chance of seeing some thunderstorms in northern ireland through the afternoon. the heavy showers in england and wales tending to be across these western areas, the showers generally have bigger gaps between them. so you have a better chance of dodging the downpours, but with lighter wrens, those showers will be slower moving, so if you catch one, it could be with you for a little bit longer. towards the channel islands, little area of low pressure here will bring outbreaks of rain through the afternoon, and there is a chance that this low just afternoon, and there is a chance that this lowjust moves a little bit further northwards. if that happens it would threaten to bring some rain in across southern counties of englund. so that is one
6:59 pm
to watch through wednesday afternoon. by the time we get to thursday, it's a familiar —looking weather charge, really, isn't it? showers, even some longer outbreaks of rain across england and wales, scotland and northern ireland, thunderstorms build particularly through the afternoon. but where we see the sunshine come again, like recent days it won't feel bad. the winds stay quite late, and temperatures a much what we've had over recent days, 14—16 celsius. right he sees one area of low—pressure ease away, but into the weekend, another low—pressure just eases straight back in off the atlantic, and that in many respects but a straight back to square one with the unsettled weather, the showery weather continuing through the weekend and write the way into next week as well. that's your forecast.
7:00 pm
