into the amber—plus travel category. the sunday times reports that private schools have been accused of taking advantage of covid disruption to a—levels and "playing the system" by lobbying top universities and medical schools to take pupils whose performance is too weak to qualify for a place — even before exam results are published in two weeks�* time. the sunday telegraph leads on reports that premier league football fans, who've not been fully vaccinated, could be barred from attending matches from october under plans expected to be signed off by ministers, the sunday mirror has the same story — but adds it will include all fans — through to league 2 in england. and finally, the sunday express says every victim of crime will be given a named police officer they can call or email about their case as part of a major new blitz by the government.

9:37 am
far less than if the government has to reimpose restrictions on big events which is a deathknell to some of the smaller clubs but also the financial sustainability of grassroots sports is a much, much bigger long—standing issue that predates the pandemic and there has to be better... with the premier league thinking about how it shares the games. huge games in terms of premier leagues which comes in football across the premier league so yes there is a risk but actually the more fundamental problem needs to be sorted out irrespective of the pandemic vaccine passports. it is pandemic vaccine passports. it is something _ pandemic vaccine passports. it is something we — pandemic vaccine passports. it is something we have seen before in that pandemic, isn't it, david? that hold that support and help from the top down in english football? yes. top down in english football? yes, every sector— top down in english football? yes, every sector has _ top down in english football? yes, every sector has suffered - top down in english football? yes, every sector has suffered badly during — every sector has suffered badly during the pandemic. move on from foothali— during the pandemic. move on from football and sport generally, the arts and — football and sport generally, the arts and culture, i mean, the bbc are launching the proms or the launch— are launching the proms or the launch them this weekend and they are now— launch them this weekend and they are now opening out again also asking — are now opening out again also asking for— are now opening out again also asking for covid—19 passport so it seems _ asking for covid—19 passport so it seems to—

9:39 am
factor the impact of removing all restrictions on the 19th. that still needs to filter through because there is a lag so i think we have got to take it with a pinch of salt and we have got to basically see over the course of the next month how the pandemic plays out and whether we see a big bounce in infections or whether it is levelling up. and if it is levelling up levelling up. and if it is levelling up that is because the vaccine is working and more and more people have been vaccinated and, again, thatis have been vaccinated and, again, that is a big protection and big hope that we can somehow survive this but we cannot do it if we cannot keep our vaccine levels up and if we don't get across the back aduu and if we don't get across the back adult population with everyone vaccinated.— adult population with everyone vaccinated. , ., , ., vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this — vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this good _ vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this good news _ vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this good news or _ vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this good news or are - vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this good news or are you i vaccinated. david, why do you sit on this? is this good news or are you a | this? is this good news or are you a bit more cautious about this piece? i think we have to seize every piece of good _ i think we have to seize every piece of good news were given but we have to seize _ of good news were given but we have to seize it _ of good news were given but we have to seize it with caution. it is six days— to seize it with caution. it is six days since _ to seize it with caution. it is six days since freedom day and the impact — days since freedom day and the impact of— days since freedom day and the impact of people moving around, i mean _ impact of people moving around, i mean... freedom day didn't come for me. mean... freedom day didn't come for me my— mean... freedom day didn't come for me. my feeling they's tomorrow

9:41 am
the two things, i would caution again it is early days with the data still coming through but the two trends we seem to be saying is that there is a vice of hospitalisation is not at the sort of scale that we saw over the second wave but there is a vice nonetheless although the link with deaths seems to have weakened. i think what is interesting is that the vice and hospitalisation, actually, the age profile that looks different. we've got more younger people coming in and, you know, we got people who have had one vaccination coming in and there is both the risk of long covid where we have so much unknown about how prolific it is, how long it lasts, long—term impact on people and also the health service we are still danger territory and i think government is right to be cautious and, you know, there will be a big, big question, i think, about as we go into the autumn winter that the nhs will come under huge pressure because it will be the impact of that hospitalisation plus the
9:42 am
backlog of operations and care that it needs to deal with when it was already in the winter that the nhs will come under huge pressure because it will be the impact of that hospitalisation plus the backlog of operations and care that it needs to deal with when it was already under financial pressure and i nhs to deal with the impact of the pandemic. i nhs to deal with the impact of the andemic. , ., ., ., pandemic. david, you are nodding alonr to pandemic. david, you are nodding along to every _ pandemic. david, you are nodding along to every word _ pandemic. david, you are nodding along to every word there. - pandemic. david, you are nodding along to every word there. it - pandemic. david, you are nodding along to every word there. it is i pandemic. david, you are nodding along to every word there. it is a l along to every word there. it is a lonr , along to every word there. it is a long. long _ along to every word there. it is a long. long haul— along to every word there. it is a long, long haul out _ along to every word there. it is a long, long haul out of _ along to every word there. it is a long, long haul out of this, - along to every word there. it is a long, long haul out of this, isn't| long, long haul out of this, isn't it? i_ long, long haul out of this, isn't it? i mean. _ long, long haul out of this, isn't it? i mean, allthese backlogs long, long haul out of this, isn't it? i mean, all these backlogs of operations— it? i mean, all these backlogs of operations and treatments in the nhs _ operations and treatments in the nhs. there's another port out in the papers _ nhs. there's another port out in the papers this— nhs. there's another port out in the papers this morning by the commons pubiic— papers this morning by the commons public accounts committee which shows _ public accounts committee which shows that we spent £372 billion on tackling _ shows that we spent £372 billion on tackling the pandemic in the past 18 months. _ tackling the pandemic in the past 18 months, which works out at about 12,500 _ months, which works out at about 12,500 for— months, which works out at about 12,500 for every taxpayer in the uk, and that's— 12,500 for every taxpayer in the uk, and that's going to carry on rising as other— and that's going to carry on rising as other issues are dealt with in the coming years, and they predict in 20 _ the coming years, and they predict in 20 or— the coming years, and they predict in 20 or 30 — the coming years, and they predict in 20 or 30 years of paying out on this _ in 20 or 30 years of paying out on this so. — in 20 or 30 years of paying out on this so. this— in 20 or 30 years of paying out on this. so, this is going to dominate our lifetime, well, it is going to dominate — our lifetime, well, it is going to dominate our lifetime and be with us

9:46 am

9:48 am
risk of variance coming in so i have got a lot of sympathy and it is an absolute nightmare for policymakers but they do need to be doing some forward planning. they need to be looking ahead, figuring out what might happen and then putting in proper contingency plans we don't have this complete chaos. i guess, david, the — have this complete chaos. i guess, david, the government's _ have this complete chaos. i guess, david, the government's position i have this complete chaos. i guess, i david, the government's position on this as they are having to deal with the here and now because this pandemic is so strong and taking all their attention day on day? yes. you do ret their attention day on day? yes. you do net the their attention day on day? yes. you do get the sense _ their attention day on day? yes. you do get the sense as _ their attention day on day? yes. you do get the sense as well _ their attention day on day? yes. you do get the sense as well that - do get the sense as well that there's— do get the sense as well that there's not much else happening in government apart from fighting the pandemic — government apart from fighting the pandemic. one thing it does say in this telegraph story is that they are trying — this telegraph story is that they are trying to increase the number of rapid _ are trying to increase the number of rapid testing centres from currently about— rapid testing centres from currently about 700 — rapid testing centres from currently about 700 to 2000 which would make it easier— about 700 to 2000 which would make it easier because if the ping didn't require _ it easier because if the ping didn't require to — it easier because if the ping didn't require to self—isolate just to test negative — require to self—isolate just to test negative then it would be easier to -et negative then it would be easier to get a _ negative then it would be easier to get a test — negative then it would be easier to get a test. i mean, when there was the outbreak in the commons last week— the outbreak in the commons last

9:50 am
they need to do on our behalf we have got to make sure that they are properly resourced and, you know, the services have seen year—on—year cuts and critically we have got to make sure we have got enough police officers and so you can name an officers and so you can name an officerfor officers and so you can name an officer for every officers and so you can name an officerfor every case officers and so you can name an officer for every case but if we don't have enough officers at different levels in order to do the job of investigating and bringing cases to justice to the courts it doesn't really matter, so, for me, great, but where's the rest of the plan? great, but where's the rest of the . ian? great, but where's the rest of the lan? , , ~' , plan? david, i guess the key ruestion plan? david, i guess the key question is— plan? david, i guess the key question is how? _ plan? david, i guess the key question is how? and - plan? david, i guess the key question is how? and this i plan? david, i guess the key| question is how? and this all plan? david, i guess the key- question is how? and this all comes back to that recruitment drive for the police force.— back to that recruitment drive for the police force. yes. i mean, priti patelthe the police force. yes. i mean, priti patel the home _ the police force. yes. i mean, priti patel the home secretary - the police force. yes. i mean, priti patel the home secretary has - the police force. yes. i mean, priti patel the home secretary has had| patel the home secretary has had some _ patel the home secretary has had some success in recruiting the offices — some success in recruiting the offices although i must say this week— offices although i must say this week she — offices although i must say this week she has of a setback when the police _ week she has of a setback when the police federation criticised her over— police federation criticised her over the — police federation criticised her over the lack of a pay rise and said they had _ over the lack of a pay rise and said they had no— over the lack of a pay rise and said they had no confidence in her but, nevertheless, crime is always a big issue _ nevertheless, crime is always a big issue it's — nevertheless, crime is always a big issue. it's the second anniversary

of boris _ issue. it's the second anniversary of borisjohnson issue. it's the second anniversary of boris johnson becoming issue. it's the second anniversary of borisjohnson becoming prime minister— of borisjohnson becoming prime minister so i suspect this an attempt _ minister so i suspect this an attempt at trying to show he has got his mind _ attempt at trying to show he has got his mind on — attempt at trying to show he has got his mind on other issues as well that's— his mind on other issues as well that's the — his mind on other issues as well that's the pandemic. this is a good idea, _ that's the pandemic. this is a good idea, i_ that's the pandemic. this is a good idea, i have — that's the pandemic. this is a good idea, i have to say. victims of crime — idea, i have to say. victims of crime always feel neglected and if you had _ crime always feel neglected and if you had an officer who you can ring or email— you had an officer who you can ring or email or— you had an officer who you can ring or e—mail or contact very quickly and easily— or e—mail or contact very quickly and easily who showed some compassion and sympathy for your case and _ compassion and sympathy for your case and was fighting for the victim notjust— case and was fighting for the victim notjust hunting down criminals then that would _ notjust hunting down criminals then that would prove quite popular. as she says. — that would prove quite popular. as she says, we'll see how it goes. i don't she says, we'll see how it goes. don't think she says, we'll see how it goes. i don't think anyone would agree that it is not a great idea, it isjust about the implementation, isn't it? yes, it isjust about the implementation, isn't it? yes, it is just about whether we have _ yes, it is just about whether we have got— yes, it is just about whether we have got enough of the named officers — have got enough of the named officers. ., . ,., ., officers. from the victim point of view that you _ officers. from the victim point of view that you don't _ officers. from the victim point of view that you don't just - officers. from the victim point of view that you don'tjust have - officers. from the victim point of view that you don'tjust have a i officers. from the victim point of- view that you don'tjust have a name that it view that you don'tjust have a name thatitis view that you don'tjust have a name that it is a name that is accessible and in the end of the thing victims care about is justice, so do we have a police force that is sufficiently well resourced to deliverjustice for victims and at the moment yet
9:52 am
there is no so, again, i think this is a good idea but i think it's probably quite superficial and the government needs to be getting the big issues and at the end of it is a price tag and, you know, there is a big battle to be had with a treasury that does not want to spend any more coming out of this pandemic which i think is short—term and foolhardy given some of the huge pressures coming out of the pandemic but a lot of pressures that have existed before the pandemic. the prime minister saying _ before the pandemic. the prime minister saying in _ before the pandemic. the prime minister saying in the _ before the pandemic. the prime minister saying in the sunday i minister saying in the sunday express there is a sense of shock and violation when someone has invaded your life, take on something you love or value or need so we will watch and see what happens with that. let's's move to the observer and finally let's talk about the olympics because according to the observer and olympics fever hits japan of the games begin. some might take finally, mesa, japan getting that olympic fever.— take finally, mesa, japan getting that olympic fever. yes, it has been a difficult and _ that olympic fever. yes, it has been a difficult and controversial- a difficult and controversial olympics. there wasn't that much sports because i don't think people were very worried about holding a
9:53 am
games that was bringing both people from abroad but also, you know, would have people gathering in the heat of the pandemic where their case numbers were rising and, you know, there were protests against the olympics being held so i think for, you know, the games, the olympic committee, it will be a slight relief that there does seem to be huge support, so have the people apparently since the opening injapan have watched some aspect of the game and there seems to be that feeling that, you know, i still remember when the olympics were in london, you get swept up in it. it is a monumental thing when it happens in a place and it seems to be happening injapan and, you know, if it can be done safely i do think it is a bit of relief leaf the fuss, something that we can all cheer on and be hopeful and optimistic about as we can all cheer on and be hopeful and optimistic about the switching cheer on our teams and, you know, take the edge off a pandemic that is really crushing and shading many of us.— pandemic that is really crushing and shading many of us. better side, we have seen demonstrations _ shading many of us. better side, we have seen demonstrations and i have seen demonstrations and protests from those in japan

9:57 am
localised flooding and disruption to transport if you do catch some of these intense downpours. thunderstorms are lots of lightning and hail mixed in with them as well but away from south—east england and the anglia in the midlands as well most places dry, settled on breaking through today. not as hot as recent days but still temperatures getting up days but still temperatures getting up to about 2k days but still temperatures getting up to about 2a or 25 degrees across parts of scotland and northern ireland as well. england and wales typically about 22 or 23 degrees. some of these heavy downpours in the south—east and east anglia will continue through the evening and overnight so still the odd number of thunder and again some surface flooding possible. during the second half of the night, most places will become drier is showers is away and there will be quite a lot local clad putting on across parts of scotland, northern england in bad northern ireland as well. temperatures overnight about 12—16 put into monday and thing still unsettled with this area of low pressure just made its way a little bit further northwards of the north—east that means we will have quite a bit of clout and if you showers for parts of northern and eastern scotland for instance as
9:58 am
well, a little bit of showery rain pushing into the far west later in the day northern ireland as well but as you can see quite a lot of places having a largely dry day, just the chance of the few isolated showers for scotland and parts of wales as well but one in the south on sunday the temperature is around 25 or 28 degrees. moving through into tuesday low pressure is sitting to the north of the uk and then the system here working in towards the west so we have got more showers in the forecast through the day on tuesday and, in fact, much of the week ahead is looking pretty unsettled. some places about 10 degrees cooler than had been giving the past week or so. perhaps some dry weather particularly in the south was the week. bye — bye.
