who needed a kidney. the trump organization has been the subject of a long—running investigation by the manhattan district attorney's office. in the last few hours, there has been a major development. in a grand jury indictment unsealed in the new york supreme court, the company and its chief financial officer, allen weisselberg, were charged with tax evasion. mr weisselberg, seen here walking into court alongside his lawyers, has worked at the company since the 1970s, for both donald trump and his late father fred. it's alleged that over 15 years at the company, he avoided paying taxes on $1.7 million of income. he has been charged on 15 counts of tax fraud and with grand larceny in the second degree. he has pleaded not guilty and was released on bail.

let's go to new york and speak to our correspondent samira hussein, who is outside the court. i get the impression because we purposely not seen these charges there is more nest people might have expected. i there is more nest people might have exected. ~ .. there is more nest people might have exected. ~' ., expected. i think the fact that we are seeinu expected. i think the fact that we are seeing there _ expected. i think the fact that we are seeing there are _ expected. i think the fact that we are seeing there are 15 _ expected. i think the fact that we are seeing there are 15 counts - expected. i think the fact that we l are seeing there are 15 counts and they have really outlined just how they have really outlined just how the trump organisation was able to defraud the irs. that is the internal revenue agency, the tax collecting arm here in the us. i thinkjust the way collecting arm here in the us. i think just the way that they have laid it out in the indictmentjust how they went about defrauding, making it clear that this scheme went on beginning in 2005 and went on right up untiljust yesterday according to the indictment. so i think there is a lot of detail in terms of how exactly they were doing
9:03 pm
that. by underselling how much money people were making, not paying payroll taxes, also in the case of the cfo himself also saying that he lived somewhere else when he actually lived in new york and was therefore not paying new york taxes. so i think you are right that many people are probably a little bit surprised byjust the kind of detail that has been involved in this investigation but it's been going on for almost three years. so i think anything less people would have been anything less people would have been a little bit disappointed because after all of this time and effort and money came in to be honest, be put into it and not to get that much out of it, i think there is that part of that, too.— out of it, i think there is that part of that, too. 0k, thank you very much _ part of that, too. 0k, thank you very much for— part of that, too. 0k, thank you very much for that. _ well, after mr weisselberg's court appearance, one of the lawyers representing the trump organization came out and had this to say. the allegations in the indictment are just that, they are allegations. they have to be proven.
9:04 pm
this is... these kinds of cases typically are resolved in the civil context. why? because the law on compensation, on fringe benefits is murky, it's difficult, it's complex. you can have experts disagree. so, these charges are going to be vigorously contested, and they're going to be vigorously contested by people who are experts in the field. and in the last hour, president trump has responded to the indictment through his now preferred method of communication, e—mail, after being banned from all the major social networking sites. in a statement he said, pretty much what we'd all expect, he called the prosecution a political witch hunt by the radical left democrats, with new york now taking over the assignment, continues. let's bring in former

9:15 pm
course is no stranger to loss. he lost his first wife it is very young daughter in a tragic car accident in the 19705 and also lost a son to brain cancer, so we are told that he is speaking to families and urging them not to lose hope. but i to say them not to lose hope. but i to say the hope that they have been cleaning too over the past eight days must be very difficult to hold onto, particularly today. we learned this morning that the early hours, these are to rescue operation taking place around the clock had to be halted largely due to concerns about the remaining part of the building that still standing. that that could also fall. and it was deemed the mound the rescue workers have been operating on over the past eight days just to unsafe now for the operation to continue. not running at the moment but there have been tropical storms here over the past few days. very difficult circumstances for the rescue workers to work under, and it is became too difficult. the rescue operation is not false which of course will be

9:17 pm
operations. they have always said that we need but we need is some luck and that so far is what they have not had. the weather conditions have not had. the weather conditions have been hugely challenging, and day after day the families of those 145 people still unaccounted for have been clinging onto the hope that maybe they might pull someone alive from the rubble. that finally after all these days, they might detect some sign of life. but all the families will be acutely aware that that has not happened now for eight days. we have not seen any sign of life since the first survivors were both directed to the building and the hours immediately after it collapsed on thursday. so i think the president is here trying to console some of the families who he met with, but it is a very difficult day. it's been an agonising wait for them and then to learn that this is rescue operation on which all their hopes are panned has had to pause, just the worst news for them it really.-

which is comprising of three pillars. the first one is all—new electric crossover. second is the battery gigawatt plant up to 35 gigawatts. the third is the micrograde, which will provide 100% renewable energy to our plant but to our suppliers' plants. that's why it's a great day for nissan, for uk and for sunderland. china's president, xijinping, has warned that foreign powers will "get their heads bashed" if they attempt to bully or influence the country. hi5 warning was part of a defiant speech he made at an event marking the centenary of the ruling communist party. china is facing mounting criticism over its alleged human rights abuses and its crackdown in hong kong. 0ur china correspondent john sudworth has the story. the unmistakable hallmarks of communist party rule were front

9:21 pm
the party clung to power by shooting dead hundreds of unarmed protesters. nor any mention of the violence and chaos of chairman mao's rule. and while the focus is on the economic success and china's big leap in living standards, critics fear that xinjiang's internment camps and the crackdown on dissent in hong kong reveal once again the true nature of one—party rule. this former party insider was expelled last year for voicing concerns about the direction the party was taking. she's now in effective exile in the us. translation: in china, _ 100 years old also means a person has lived long and it is time to think of death. if the communist party should

review its mistakes, it should do a redemption, not celebration. but china's rulers, convinced that it's democracy, not authoritarianism, that's in decline, intend to party on. john sudworth, bbc news, taipei. 130 countries have signed up to a new framework for international tax reform. the outline deal aims to ensure that large multi—nationals pay tax in the countries they operate in. the agreement would impose a minimum level for corporate tax. it's been described as the most important tax deal reached in a century. let's talk to our economic correspondent andrew bush. let's go into two constituent parts. first the multinational companies will pay tax where they operate, not what they choose to pay taxes. it's at the end the tax shelters? that is certainly the _ at the end the tax shelters? that is certainly the idea, _ at the end the tax shelters? that is certainly the idea, and _ at the end the tax shelters? that is certainly the idea, and this - at the end the tax shelters? that is| certainly the idea, and this element was driven particularly by concerns
9:23 pm
about big technology companies using the internet so that they can make a lot of money by relationships with consumers in countries where they have no physical presence at all. and the way in which this agreement is intended to address that is by taking a certain level of profit above what you might call a basic level and then allocating part of that additional profit on the basis of where the consumers are so that the government's in those countries are the consumers are can impose their taxes on that element of the profit the companies are earning. it's notjust about big tech, but it was very much motivated by a feeling that some of them simply were not paying their share of taxes in the countries where consumers were generating their business for them. if we are going to build back better, the big debate is where that money comes from. the 0ecd 5ay5
9:24 pm
today the wreck and the minimum tax rate would raise £150 billion a year. that is quite a lot of money. yes, it is but i to say it still has had some criticism from campaigners. they regard the figure of 50% which is being suggested as the minimum rate of corporate tax. i would add that the agreement 5ay5 rate of corporate tax. i would add that the agreement says at least 50%. this is not all definitively nailed down so that does suggest there might be some room in negotiation but i will be a little surprised if we go beyond that. but certainly campaigners reckon that the figures should be higher and that if it were higher, it could generate a lot of additional money especially for developing countries who those campaigners say are getting a bit of a raw deal through this. some of describe this is a money grab by the g7 leading developers. in money grab by the g7 leading developers— money grab by the g7 leading develoers_ , ,, ii g: . developers. in place by 2023 which --eole developers. in place by 2023 which people might _ developers. in place by 2023 which people might think _ developers. in place by 2023 which people might think it's _ developers. in place by 2023 which people might think it's quite - developers. in place by 2023 which people might think it's quite a i developers. in place by 2023 which people might think it's quite a long way away but in tax terms is pretty ambitious when you consider the picture in congress and the moment

9:26 pm
black curtain i'm looking at and when he does we will bring that to you to get his thoughts on what he experienced today in miami. do you stay with us here on bbc news. hello again. the weather's been dry for most of us today with some spells of sunshine coming through during the afternoon. probably the best of the sunshine today was in scotland, but across parts of southwest england, it was also glorious for a time. however, elsewhere, we've seen a few showers pop up. not many, but if you were under one of these bigger clouds, i'm sure those showers would've been quite heavy, particularly across parts of hampshire and sussex as well. so, there are the shower clouds on the satellite picture, butjust zooming a little bit further west. you don't have to go too far west to find some thicker cloud. this is an area of low pressure that's going to be moving our way in time for the weekend, flicking bands of rain across the country. now, before we get there, overnight tonight, it's looking like a dry night for most areas with just a few mist and fog patches forming. there'll be some thicker

cloud developing as well. temperatures mild, 12—14 degrees quite widely. little cooler for north east england and northern scotland — temperatures down to about eight here. any mist patches should clear pretty quickly tomorrow morning and the cloud will thin and break, and again, most of us will have spells of sunshine and dry weather through the afternoon. however, they are going to be showers around. they'll be a little bit more widespread and will tend to focus across eastern parts of england through the afternoon with one or two thunderstorms. but aside from those showers, it will feel a bit warmer, temperatures widely between 20—23 degrees celsius. the weekend, though, takes a turn for the worse. it turns increasingly unsettled with some heavy bands of rain and widespread showers, too. here's saturday's forecast. this first band of rain pushes northwards across to england and wales, reaching scotland and northern ireland later in the day. it'll be followed by showers. now, for the most part, those showers will move through, but across the southwest england, with these convergent winds, that will tend to lock the showers in place across parts of southwest england, so those showers and thunderstorms could be quite long—lasting and may well bring some localised surface water flooding.
9:28 pm
so, we'll have to keep a close eye on those shower bands here. temperatures a little bit down on recent days — 20—21 celsius the top temperatures, and on sunday, it stays pretty unsettled. widespread showers, a few of them turning thundery in nature. one of those days where most places will see a downpour or two. at the same time, it won't be raining all the time. there will be some dry slots and a bit of sunshine. temperatures about 21 degrees at the highest. that's the latest weather.
9:29 pm

this is bbc news, our top stories... at an eagerly— anticipated court hearing in manhattan, lawyers for the trump organisation and its chief financial officer have pleaded not guilty to tax fraud. we are going to take you straight to miami where president biden has been meeting with families of those who have died in the apartment block collapsed last week. let's listen in. ., ' . collapsed last week. let's listen in. ., , . , ., ., in. how difficult things are down here, in. how difficult things are down here. and _ in. how difficult things are down here. and it's — in. how difficult things are down here, and it's wet, _ in. how difficult things are down here, and it's wet, quite - in. how difficult things are down | here, and it's wet, quite frankly, we miss a lot. you know, we have all
9:31 pm
been working in tandem from the moment we got the news of the collapse of the building. i think my colleagues will tell you we cut through the bureaucracy, the one order i gave to federal folks was no bureaucracy, just cut their it's get them whatever they need. that's why we decided to cover, for example, 100% of the search and rescue cost for the first 30 days. not to done often, but necessary here, in my view. fema i5 often, but necessary here, in my view. fema is going to provide temporary housing and other urgent needs for at the survivors. the state department is expediting vi5a5 state department is expediting visas for family members from other countries and from latin america, south america, israel. i want to give a special shout out to the first responders. the international association of firefighters, one of the best organisations in the country, and i particularly want to
9:32 pm
thank the president that came down from boston, he is here with the entire group. you know, these folks, they are always showing up, no matter what. they are risking their lives. you know, there is that old expression, the press that travels at me is tired of hearing aids, but i am not tired of saying it, god made man, then he made a few firefighters. the remarkable, remarkable people. they are always risking their lives to save lives as well as for police and other first responders. i got to meet with a whole bunch of them. we were able to employ nearly 500 personnel, including five other search and rescue teams on the ground today here because of our fema director ordered it. iwant here because of our fema director ordered it. i want to comment —— complement fema, all of those folks are risking their lives to save lives but also holding out hope that those will be found, hope springs
9:33 pm
eternal. when i talk to those first responders, i pointed out that they are under a great deal of stress. we should take advantage, they should take advantage of the mental health facilities that are going to be available because we talk about our military suffering from ptsd, well, seeing what they are seeing, doing what they are doing, understanding how much trauma is involved, iju5t don't want them thinking that they should walk away from help it that is needed. you know, they stand together, and it's really impressive. there is also they need, in addition to this local assistance, to determine the cause of this collapse in the adjacent buildings, how safe are they? there are two outstanding concerns. first, remaining buildings may collapse, the remainder of the building may collapse. we need to determine if it is a preference responders to return to the site to continue their rescue mission. that's being done right
9:34 pm
now, that's why asked that national institute of standards and technology to investigate to see if it is safe to go back and what caused the building to collapse in the first place. we are committed not only to recover, but to be * the safety across the board. the other reason i came down was to meet with the families. the whole nation is morning with these families. they see it every day on television. they are going through hell, and those who survived the collapse a5 are going through hell, and those who survived the collapse as well as those who are missing loved ones, i realise i'm a little late because i spend a lot of time at the families, a whole lot of time, and i apologise for taking so long to get here, because i thought it was important to speak to every single person who wanted to speak to me. so after what you've all covered when i opened up the meeting, i spent the remainder of the time, and i met to such
9:35 pm
incredible people. i sat with one woman who just lost her husband and her little baby boy, didn't know what to do. i sat with another family that lost almost an entire family that lost almost an entire family because —— cousins, brothers, sisters. i watched them as they prayed and pled, god, let there be a miracle, let that something happened to me that's good. i have, like you do, some idea to suffer that kind of loss that so many of them are suffering. you know, they had basic heart—wrenching questions. will i be able to recover the body of my sun or daughter, my husband, my cousin, my mum and dad? how can i have closure without being able to bury them if i don't get the body? what do i do? jail and them if i don't get the body? what do i do? jailand i them if i don't get the body? what do i do? jail and i wanted them to know that we are with them and that the country is with them. our
9:36 pm
message today is that we are here for you as one nation, as one nation, and that is the message we communicated. we will be in touch with a lot of these families continuing through this process. there is much more to be done. we are ready to do it, and again, i think the governor, i think my colleagues, senator scott, senator rubio, i think debbie wasserman schultz for their total and complete cooperation. there is no disagreement, no bickering, everybody is in the same team. it's what america is all about. it's about pulling together, leaving nobody behind. that's what made me feel, the one thing that made me feel, the one thing that made me feel good about this is the cohesion that exists. there is no democrat or republican out there, it is just people wanting to do the right thing for their fellow americans. so people wanting to do the right thing for theirfellow americans. so may god bless the victims and their
9:37 pm
families, may god protect our first responders, and i will take a couple of questions right now. the neck mr president, what were you told today about the likelihood you had said hope springs eternal, but that someday— hope springs eternal, but that someday will be able to be pulled out safely because max— out safely because max president biden giving _ out safely because max president biden giving his _ out safely because max president biden giving his thoughts - out safely because max president biden giving his thoughts after i out safely because max president biden giving his thoughts after a l biden giving his thoughts after a long day down there in miami. he is about an hour late to that press conference and he has been with the families, i think, for around two to three hours this afternoon. they are going through hell, he said, he spent a lot of time speaking to each and every single person. all of them with such heart wrenching questions. a couple of details on things that they are providing. i told you at they are providing. i told you at the top of the programme, they will meet all of the costs of the search and rescue. he said that that fema will provide temporary housing for all of the survivors. the state department is expediting vi5a5 so that family members can get into the country for those who are lost. also, fema bringing in an extra 500 personnel, five new search and rescue teams to alleviate the pressure on those who have been
9:38 pm
searching over the last week. going into the second week of the search and rescue operation. it has been paused for the moment because of concerns over safety on the site, but, of course, for those who have been there from the beginning, it has been a long and traumatic few days. let's bring in soapy long, who was listening to that. as he said, at the outset, soapy, sadly, the president has experience at tuscany has suffered himself because he has lost family members in his own family tragedy. —— sophie. he knows what they are going through. yes. family tragedy. -- sophie. he knows what they are going through.- what they are going through. yes, i think he really _ what they are going through. yes, i think he really does, _ what they are going through. yes, i think he really does, and _ what they are going through. yes, i think he really does, and that - think he really does, and that probably helped his meetings this afternoon. he said that the families were going through hell and he will have experienced that kind of hell. when you listen to the questions, the kind of questions he was being asked, he said that we were waiting for him for a while, he said the reason he was late was because he wanted to speak to every single person who wanted to speak to him. the kind of questions, will i be
9:39 pm
able to recover the body of my husband, if not, how would i get closure? so i think that is quite telling —— telling about the people have been going through of it the past eight days now, he also said that he was here to be with the families. he was also here to thank the first responders who have been risking their lives searching for survivors around the clock for more than seven days now. he said after that we need to find the cause of the collapse, and he also mentioned whether the rest of the building is safe. that at this time it is absolutely crucial, christian, because the search and rescue operation has been halted because at the moment, it is not to say. they are very concerned that there has been a shift, a movement with the remainder of the building, and that could fall also. there have been tropical storms here, a huge amount of rain has fallen, which is basically made the pile of rubble that that block of flats has been reduced to far too dangerous for the emergency workers to continue their work. an agonising wait for the
9:40 pm
families. the president today trying to console some of them, but also deeply frustrating times for those first responders that we saw him meeting a little earlier today. they are desperate to get on with their work. it's been a very traumatic time for them. i was speaking to one of them yesterday about the challenges they were facing, and a lot of them have a huge amount of experience in a sealed, but they said they have never seen anything like it. something unique about the way that the building collapsed in on itself making theirjob even more difficult. he was saying to me that the most difficult thing is that we are human beings, and day after day, night after night, around the clock, they are searching for survivors, but also for bodies, and that the last two bodies to be pulled out of that wreckage where children, a four—year—old and a ten—year—old. an immensely difficult time for them, and of course, an agonising wait for the families. the presidents coming here today to try to consult some of those people, and to think that first responders for all of their backbreaking work, their painstaking work over the past eight days. yes.
9:41 pm
work over the past eight days. yes, indeed. dreadful _ work over the past eight days. yes, indeed. dreadful for _ work over the past eight days. yes, indeed. dreadfulforthe work over the past eight days. yes, indeed. dreadful for the families. sophie indeed. dreadfulforthe families. sophie in miami, thank you very much indeed. the singer britney spears has been invited by republicans to testify before congress about the conservatorship which has controlled her life for the last 13 years. earlier this week, a los angeles court rejected her request for herfatherjamie to be removed from the arrangement. the singer had told the court she was "afraid of her father" and wanted him removed as her sole conservator — a role he has carried out since 2008. let's talk to the entertainment attorney domenic romano who joins us from new york. good to see. i'm glad you're here, actually, because i've been reading the story today. i am fascinated by it because of the testimony that we heard last week. it was quite shocking. i am heard last week. it was quite shocking. lam puzzled by heard last week. it was quite shocking. i am puzzled by what her court appointed lawyer has done. he doesn't seem to have requested for the conservatorship to end. nor for jamie to be removed until two days after she had given testimony.
9:42 pm
right, right. thatjudges ruling here is not on the removal of the conservatorship or the disillusionment of that conservatorship it specifically about removing jamie spears, her father, as co—conservator together with the bessemer trust over her financial affairs. that is the distinction here. yes, that was just, it is presumed that she will now file to end the conservatorship itself. so now file to end the conservatorship itself. . �* . now file to end the conservatorship itself. ., �* , ., itself. so that's running from the 'ud . e, itself. so that's running from the judge. from _ itself. so that's running from the judge. from judge _ itself. so that's running from the judge, from judge penny, - itself. so that's running from the judge, from judge penny, we i itself. so that's running from the i judge, from judge penny, we should see that, what, a5 judge, from judge penny, we should see that, what, as an interim ruling? see that, what, as an interim rulin: ? ~ �* . . see that, what, as an interim rulin: ? ~ �* , , ., ruling? well, it's interesting that it came out _ ruling? well, it's interesting that it came out after _ ruling? well, it's interesting that it came out after the _ ruling? well, it's interesting that it came out after the judge - it came out after the judge presumably heard that testimony very recently where she, you know, advocated for herself and that she could basically take care of herself. but there are two parts to this, the financial, the conservatorship of the estate, which the trust and her father, and
9:43 pm
usually crates will allow that when the subject, when the conservatee i5 the subject, when the conservatee is unable to manage her own affairs or financial resources, then there is a personal conservatorship. here, jody montgomery can as i understand it as her personal conservator, so it is possible that a court, that a judge at a future hearing may determine that there should be an end to the personal conservatorship, but not necessarily the one of the estate, over her affairs. it's interesting to note that over the last 13 years when this temporary conservatorship has been in place, brittany�*s affairs according to reports have gone from her being in debt to establishing a wealth of over $60 million, so it seems that the financial part has worked to this point, but you can understand, one can have sympathy with her desire to retake control of her life, notjust her personal affairs, her health, her personal affairs, her health, her decisions, and also her financial ones.—
9:44 pm
her decisions, and also her financial ones. absolutely. the testimony _ financial ones. absolutely. the testimony she _ financial ones. absolutely. the testimony she gave _ financial ones. absolutely. the testimony she gave us - financial ones. absolutely. the testimony she gave us quite i testimony she gave us quite remarkable. she said she had been forced to take medication, she wasn't able to get married, she wasn't able to get married, she wasn't able to control her own body, she wasn't allowed to have children. it sounded like the conservatorship which was there to protect her had actually taken advantage of her. clearly, there are republicans in congress who watched and saw the reporting who are equally concerned because our freedoms have been stripped away from her. i because our freedoms have been stripped away from her.- because our freedoms have been stripped away from her. i think this is a bipartisan _ stripped away from her. i think this is a bipartisan issue, _ stripped away from her. i think this is a bipartisan issue, frankly. - stripped away from her. i think this is a bipartisan issue, frankly. i- is a bipartisan issue, frankly. i think many people are concerned, it should also be noted that the lawyer for her father called for an investigation into those claims and said if they are true, there should definitely be changes to the conservatorship arrangement. that is one to watch- — conservatorship arrangement. that is one to watch. domenic, _ conservatorship arrangement. that is one to watch. domenic, thank - conservatorship arrangement. that is one to watch. domenic, thank you i one to watch. domenic, thank you very much indeed. to stay with us here on bbc news. stay with us on bbc news, still to come: we talk to two wives who helped save the lives of the others husband — that's next. borisjohnson has said he hopes life
9:45 pm
in england will return to as close to its pre—pandemic state as possible on 19thjuly. the prime minister said he'd set out his plans in the next few days but he warned some extra precautions might still be needed. i know that people are inpatient for us to open up faster and, i know that people are impatient for us to open up faster and, of course, i want to do that, but what i am saying to people as we are now in the final line, i believe. we have to look very carefully at the data, and at the moment, what we are seeing is a big increase in cases, 26,000 as you will have seen, but that is not translating into a big increase and serious illness and death. so, it looks ever clearer that we have broken the vaccination programme, the speed of that...vaccine roll—outs has broken that link between infection and mortality. that's an amazing thing. that gives us the scope,
9:46 pm
we think them on the 19th to go ahead cautiously, irreversibly to go ahead. 0n the 19th, are you going to have the courage of your convictions and say, social distancing will go, masks will go rather than a neutered version of real life? i know how impatient people are to get back to total normality, as indeed am i, and we will be setting out, i will be setting up in the course of the next few days what step four would look like exactly, but i have said it before, we will be wanting to go back to a world that is as close to the status quo anti—covid as possible. try to get back to life as close to it was before covid. but there may be some things we have to do, some extra precautions that we have to take, but i will be setting all of that out.
9:47 pm
a recent uptick in coronavirus cases. let me show you the figures. you will see from the graph that infections are a long way down from those spikes in the winter months, but at the end there, you will see the aptech which is down to the spread of the delta variant. the bastille, of course, is vaccination, the picture much improved now across europe with around 40% of the over eight teams now double jab. the best tool to fight that is vaccination. the picture is much improved across europe, with around 40% of over 185 now double—jabbed. greece is now offering everyone between the ages of 18 and 25 an incentive. everyone who gets double—jabbed will receive 150 euros. because although they have vaccinated 45% of the population, the numbers coming forward more recently has dipped quite significantly.
9:48 pm
so, how will the scheme work? i've been speaking to aki5 skertsos, greece's deputy minister to the prime minister. we do see the younger people do not have the same level of urgency that we see in the older generations. this is probably logical because they don't have the same threat as older people. they see at the same time their parents or their grandparents have been vaccinated, so they don't see the reason they should do it now. but the reason is here, the reason is the new variant, that the pandemic has not gone away. so what we thought is we should give them a small incentive or reward, if you may, that would make them again think they should vaccinate themselves as soon as possible. it is crucially important, this, though, because clearly greece wants to reopen the tourism industry. it's vitally important to the economy. and a lot of these young people will be working in and around the tourist sector. yes. what we are doing is we are giving a prepaid card to every young greek from age 18 to age 25 that has either been vaccinated up to now
9:49 pm
or will be vaccinated until the end of 2021. they will be able to spend this money on specific activities that are related to tourism and culture which have been impacted due to covid over the last 16 months. so we think this is a scheme and a mechanism that is a win—win both for public health but at the same time for the covid—hit industries. can i talk to you about the eu passport scheme, the vaccine passport scheme, which has been unveiled today? clearly that is going to get people moving around the continent, but the uk is not within that system. so what happens when eu tourists arrive at greek ports, greek airports? first of all let me say that this has been an idea of the greek prime minister back injanuary 2021, which was adopted by the eu and was very fast implemented by the european
9:50 pm
commission and all other countries. actually we have administering the european covid certificate since earlyjune, and we have seen more people coming in safely over this month than people who visited greece back in july 2020 when we opened last year our tourist market. we've also seen that because of the vaccine certificate tia wimbush and susan ellis worked in the same department for over a decade. they didn't know each other particularly well, but in a chance encounter in the rest room at work, they made a remarkable discovery. that both their husbands were awaiting a kidney transplant. but that was not the end of the story — far from it — so here pick up the story are the two women themselves tia and susan, join us from atlanta. lovely too happy u5. rights, when you are in the rest room can you

9:56 pm
this is on the weather menu for the weekend, though. it will be bringing some pulses of rain our way. friday's weather picture — well, for most of us it's another dry—looking day. bit of cloud, a few mist and fog patches early on. sunny spells then develop. but into the afternoon, again, we're going to see showers develop. now the showers are going to be a little bit more widespread, some of them heavy and thundery, unlike those we've seen over recent days. now, but greatest chance of seeing the downpours will be across eastern areas of england as we go through the course of the afternoon. top temperatures about 23 degrees. now this weekend, that area of cloud i showed you on the satellite picture a moment ago, well, that's going to be bringing some heavy downpours followed by widespread showers. the first batch of rain will be pushing northwards quite quickly during saturday morning, across england and wales. northern ireland turning wet. scotland seeing the rain in the afternoon, but, behind that feature, we'll see showers following in. now the showers, for the most part, will tend to move through with some bright skies between, but, where the winds converge across parts of south—west england, we may well see a line of slow—moving thunderstorms form.
9:57 pm
they could bring some heavier rain, maybe even bringing some localised surface water flooding. so that's one area to watch for. given that there's more cloud around and more shower activity, temperatures will be just coming down by a degree or two, but still not bad in the sunny spells. on into sunday's forecast, another unsettled kind of day. sunshine and widespread showers, those showers will be turning thundery in places as well. nowhere's immune from catching a downpour, but it won't be raining all weekend. there will be some drier moments between this whole rash of showers. top temperatures about 19,20 degrees or so. a little bit cool for the time of year, but again, not bad in those brighter moments. into next week, well, low pressure is going to be coming in off the atlantic. this is going to be bringing us more wet and, at times, fairly windy weather through monday and tuesday — now there's a fairly decent model certainty about this so it does look like it'll be pretty wet at times. notice how the rain will be pushing further northwards into parts of scotland as well. some sunny spells following before the next batch of rain works in from the south—west later
9:58 pm
in the day and overnight as well. so tuesday, another unsettled one. outbreaks of rain, still quite windy as well, particularly around coasts and hills in the south and west. potentially the far north of scotland seeing some cooler, showery conditions, but perhaps the worst of the rain staying away from here, but for most of us it does look very unsettled. now, beyond that, further into the week ahead, the jet stream pattern, well, we've still got a trough over the uk, so we're expecting it to stay unsettled — really a mixture of sunshine and showers. then we start to see this upper ridge moving into the north—west. that may well settle the weather down from the north—west as we head deeper into the week ahead, but there's a lot of uncertainty about that. but it does look like it will stay unsettled with at least some showers around. that's your weather.
