team europe are the underdogs, with nearly all of the 40,000 fans at whistling straits, backing team usa, but they have the more experienced players, as they try to retain the trophy. and there are some dense fog patches around this morning, particularly in the hills in the south and west. a lot of cloud in the west. it will feel warm. details coming up. and strictly�*s back tomorrow night — we find out how this year's contestants are feeling ahead of the big day. good morning. a 38—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of primary school teacher, sabina nessa. her body was found in a park in london last weekend. officers have also released images of another person they'd like to speak to in connection with the investigation, as sean dilley reports. do you recognise this man? if you do, police would like to hear from you, as your information could help officers investigating sabina nessa's death.
6:02 am
police believe the 28—year—old primary school teacher was attacked as she walked through cator park in south—east london on her way to meet a friend. we believe as she walked through the park she was approached by an individual and fatally attacked. sabina's body was sadly found by a member of the public, and we are appealing for anyone who was here on friday evening, and who thinks they saw anything unusual, to come forward. last night's arrest was the second in a case that has hit local people hard. the many poignant tributes reflect a community's loss, as people young and old try to understand. the other arrested man, who is in his 405, was released under investigation earlier this week. detectives believe sabina nessa was attacked at about half past eight on friday night, shortly after leaving her nearby home on astell road. she had been on her way to meet a friend at the depot bar. her body was found near the one space community centre

6:04 am
no petrol or diesel. yet another consequence of the national shortage of lorry drivers. the fuel giant bp supplies about 1200 outlets across the country. some have had to close temporarily, while others have run out of one or more types of fuel. rival supplier esso it's also experienced problems at a small number of the sites it operates in partnership with tesco. the problem isn't a lack of fuel. there's plenty available at the country's refineries. there simply aren't enough tanker drivers to take it to petrol stations. it's part of a much wider problem, a national shortage of lorry drivers. well, it's happened because of a multitude of factors. we've had brexit, we've lost about 20,000 european drivers. we lost 40,000 trucker training tests during the pandemic because of social distancing rules. those tests were cancelled. and we had a historic shortage in this country of tens
6:05 am
of thousands of lorry drivers, and that means we've got a shortage now of 100,000. that's already led to bare shelves in supermarkets and other stores, which people within the sector have warned are likely to get worse in the run—up to christmas. the haulage industry body, logistics uk, says the shortage is a very serious issue, but it has warned consumers against panic buying fuel. that's a call echoed by the government, which says people should refuel as normal. it points out it's already taken steps to make training new hgv drivers quicker and easier. not all petrol retailers are affected by the current problems. morrisons, co—op and sainsbury�*s say their petrol stations are operating as normal. but the fact shortages are occurring at all has highlighted once again how supply chains in the uk are coming under intense strain. theo leggett, bbc news. let's get more from our political correspondent nick eardley, who's in westminster. good morning. so where are we with

6:09 am
fewer ct scans than expected. nhs england says cancer services have now returned to pre—pandemic levels. but the report says if the health service was able to improve that performance by 5%, the backlog would still not be cleared until 2033. and the authors warn that without a big investment in equipment and staff, thousands of people will be left waiting for diagnosis and treatment. dominic hughes, bbc news. restaurant, cafe and pub bosses in the uk, will soon be banned from keeping customer tips left for staff. until now, it's been up to business owners to decide whether the money is divided equally or put back into the company. the government legislation is expected to come into force within the next year. the time now is nine minutes past six. time to look at the weather with matt. good morning. those dark mornings, they are here now for

story this morning. a vigil will be held this evening, to honour the life of 28—year—old sabina nessa, who was killed in london last weekend. her family have paid tribute to her as the "kindest, sweetest girl you could meet", while colleagues of the primary school teacher have described her as "kind, caring and dedicated to her pupils". zoe conway reports. sabina nessa was 28 years old when she died. her sister says she was talented and caring. she taught at his primary school. the head teacher says she was absolutely dedicated to her pupils. this parent, who met her several times, says she was kind. very sad news, very, very sad. we not expect. yeah, she's a kind person and lovely person and, you know, we are missing her. and my son also love her. trust me, last night my son crying a lot because he doesn't want a new teacher. joy's son andrew was in sabina nessa's class.

6:14 am
it's going to be just a time for gentle reflection, and there will be a few people speaking and we will have candles there. along with the grief, there is anger. anger that yet another young woman has been killed. zoe conway, bbc news. 14 minutes past six. let's take a look at today's papers. like many of the front pages, the guardian reports on a warning of fuel shortages at some petrol stations due to a lack of lorry drivers. of course, you can see the photographs are of primary school teacher at sabina nessa, with the news that a 38—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of her murder. �*we're running on empty�* — that's the headline in today's sun. it says there are calls to rip up immigration laws to make it easier to hire foreign hauliers. the times writes that borisjohnson is urging consumers not to panic buy fuel. the paper has also been told that ministers have discussed putting soldiers on standby to drive petrol tankers.
6:15 am
and the bbc news website features the story that restaurant, cafe and pub bosses will soon banned from keeping tips left for their staff. we'll be speaking more about that later in the programme with celebrity chef aldo zilli. take a look inside. lovely picture, really. i quite like this. spot the difference? i don't think you can. so, on the right is melissa's dog. i can't see the name. anyway, she took a picture of the cloud and look at the similarity. just lovely. she caught itjust in time as well. she got it in kentucky. did you ever do that game where you lie down and name the shapes of the clouds in the sky? do you know how quickly they

6:21 am
in order to resuscitate, revive players when they had a blow to the head. we've actually subsequently found out that that exacerbates the blow, because it actually causes the head tojerk back, which is a kind of further problem. but it was the reality of the 60s and 70s. the reality of what footballers like bill are facing in later life has now become a critical conversation. it's not something that happens overnight. but it slowly nibbles at you, at your memory. every day is different. we take each day as it comes, but he knows he's got dementia and he knows there's something different about himself. he talks about feeling different and that he can't think straight sometimes. the first signs were in his sort of mid—60s, sort of forgetting people's names at first. it was misplacing his car keys, losing his wallet. dad was brought up in norwich, knows all the roads like the back of his hand, you know.
6:22 am
and he was driving back from wroxham to where he lived and got lost. and that was where you're thinking, blimey, you know. my bill has melted away and i now have a shell as distinct from a personality. bill's first club is in the town where he and judith met. this weekend spennymoor will host the first adult football match with heading restrictions. so here are the rules for this experimental game. in the first half headers are only allowed inside the box, which means players could still finish crosses, but the number of headers should be reduced. in the second half headers are completely banned. and of course both these rules means that of the high force headers from further away shouldn't happen at all. as to whether or not we see it in real life, who knows? you do need to head the ball in certain moments of the game, you know, from corners, when the goalkeeper is kicking it high. so it will be hard to rule heading out of football completely, but you never know in the future.
6:23 am
players of the future are at the heart of this campaign. these children think the balance between safety and instinct will be difficult to strike. got to work it well, but when you get it well enough, then i think it works fine. i think it's more of a reflex. if, during the game, a ball came towards me and it was aiming for my head, i would header it out of the way because that's just the natural thing to do. but i suppose after the game it might make you think a bit more about it. in the game you just kind of act on instinct, i guess. like, if the ball is coming towards you at head height, you head it. there's nothing much else you can do. i've had an injury from a header, which put me out for about six weeks. so that wasn't good. i've been thinking about it since then, but before that i didn't really think about it much. and is that one header going to ruin your life? is it..? yeah, is it going to stop that goal, is it going to be worth it? bill's family say it isn't worth it,

6:25 am
old's murder believe she was attacked on her way to meet a friend at a pub a week ago. a 38—year—old man has been arrested. the mayor of london says he's still pushing the government to make face coverings on public transport a national requirement to help stop the spread of coronavirus. it's a condition of travel on tfl services. but sadiq khan says fewer people are now wearing masks and wants the police to be able to issue fines. at the moment, we're not getting the help from the government that we need and as a consequence, people who can't keep their social distance, have to use public transport, are taking a lottery over the chance of potentially catching it because if you aren't wearing a facemask, there is more of a chance of you passing it on if you've got the virus. two europe's largest biomedical research institute under one roof re—opens to the public in london this weekend. the gallery at the francis crick institute closed during the pandemic to serve as a covid vaccination centre. it's now reopening with

6:27 am
and temperatures likely to reach 23, maybe even 24 celsius. so still above where they should be for late september. overnight tonight, that cloud continues really across all parts and it lingers into saturday. should stay dry tonight, the minimum temperature, it's going to be another mild one between 12 and 15 celsius. so tomorrow morning, again, might be a bit of mistiness around, that cloud is going to linger through saturday but it should stay dry. you'll notice on sunday, a cold front is edging towards us. could see some showers on sunday but also some sunny spells. that cold front moves across overnight bringing some rain and are behind it, into the first part of next week, it introduces some cool air. so temperatures finally returning to perhaps where they should be for the time of year, so it is going to feel a little chillier. we've got some spells of rain and the weather generally turning a little more unsettled and autumnal. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. plenty more on our website at the usual address.

6:31 am
of the world's top ten players. but after a year's delay because of covid, there was relief on both sides that one of golf�*s most famous events is finally back. there is no question, the ryder cup is a special occasion, but all things considered, has there ever been the prospect of a ryder cup quite as special as this one? after all the world has been through these past two years, it is such a joy and relief to be standing here in front of you today, and in front of so many of you. well, in just a few hours' time, this long—awaited ryder cup will finally be under way and the standard here will be filled will finally be under way and the stands here will be filled with cheering supporters. but one thing is for certain, not many of them will be cheering for europe. # god bless america! america's home advantage has never been greater. because of travel restrictions to the us, there are just a sprinkling of european fans here. but padraig harrington's team have
6:32 am
been busy winning friends. during final practice, they threw gifts into the crowd and received an enthusiastic welcome. but they will know their opponents are ready for the challenge. they're playing great and they're excited to get going. i mean, i can't tell you how excited they are to get going and get that first tee ball in the air. but europe, remember, have won four of the last five ryder cups, including the most recent one in paris in 2018. they might be the underdogs but they'll be hoping once again for a bit of that ryder cup magic. andy swiss, bbc news, whistling straits. it all starts at 1pm our time this lunchtime. the former arsenal manager arsene wenger has defended his plans to hold a world cup every two years. wenger, who is now fifa's head of global development, drew criticism from many within the game after he first proposed the idea to hold more world cups rather than the current one every four years but in an interview with bbc
6:33 am
podcast "the sports desk", he says he is ready "to gamble to make football better. i would say the world cup is such a huge event that i don't think it will diminish the prestige. you want to be the best in the world and you want to be the best in the world every year. so i don't think that to organise a world cup every two years would be diminishing the prestige. derby county manager wayne rooney has promised vows to stay at the stricken club, despite their precarious financial position. the championship side have been placed in administration, and so deducted 12 points. it's left them bottom of the table on nine points adrift of safety. but it's brought out rooney's fighting spirit. listen, i grew up on a council estate in liverpool. i know how tough things can be, i know how tough life can be. what type of person would i be if i walk away now and go and put my feet up, go on holiday and sit in the sun for a few weeks?
6:34 am
i'm prepared to try to get this club into a stable position, stable, first of all, and then hopefully in the future we can start looking a bit further forward. it's not going so well in the league for celtic this season, but they are through to the semi—finals of the scottish league cup after a comfortable 3—0 win over raith rovers. there was a gulf in class, with celtic moving the ball around at ease. and a wonderful finish too from david turnbull to make it 3—0 and set up a meeting against st johnstone. raith rovers played out the final half hour with ten men after dario zanatta's dismissal. in the night's other match, hibernian were 3—1winners away at dundee united, meaning they face rangers in the other semi. anthonyjoshua says he would fight king kong if he was asked as he prepares to take on 0leksandr usyk in london. the wba, wbo and ibf world heavyweight champion defends his titles tomorrow against the former undisputed cruiserweight champion usyk.

6:41 am
a small number of petrol stations have been forced to close due to a lack of available fuel caused by a shortage of lorry drivers. ben's at a bp garage for us this morning. so, i don't know how clear we can be about the numbers, how many forecourts are affected. but it ties into other questions doesn't it, about the supply chain. absolutely, we have talked about this so much come the shortage of hgv drivers which means the different industries have been affected. initially it was food and now it is the turn of places like this. we should be clear, there is not a shortage of fuel, there is a shortage of drivers to get the fuel to filling stations. that's why there is a problem. the latest account from bp is about 100 of its 1200 petrol stations are suffering some shortages, also some esso garages and a few in tesco supermarkets. that's the current
6:42 am
state of play. the worry is it could get worse because here, they have got their big delivery yesterday, the tanks and —— under the forecourt is full. normally they can ring up and get delivery in 24 hours, but it is now taking ten days that delivery to get here. that's because there are not the drivers to drive their trucks. it's a similar scene repeated up and down the country. the problem is that if people change their habits, they go out and bore by more than they normally would, the supply chain comes unstuck. things are delivered just in time, just when they are needed, so if there is any change in the consumption or shopping habits, like we saw in the pandemic at supermarkets, that's when problems begin. let's talk to robert mackenzie at the road haulage association. good morning. let's
6:43 am
talk festival about what people will experience when they wake up this morning. we are told that the shortage of fuel is limited to a certain number of petrol stations. but could this problem get worse? well, it's as simple as this. everything we get in britain comes on the back of a truck. if there is a shortage of hgv drivers, and there is, by100,000, there is a shortage of hgv drivers, and there is, by 100,000, there is an inevitability that we will not get all of the things we want when we want them. the logistics industry is brilliant at organising logistics, so it's not a case of running out of people should not panic buy. but they are struggling and working really hard to get essential deliveries right across the board, notjust petrol but absolutely everything you can think of, to the people who need it. there will be glitches because the supply chain on which we all depend is creaking. forgive me, you might be able to hear that there is one driver that
6:44 am
has just turned up at this petrol station this morning who is not delivering petrol but he is making enough noise! bear with us. talk to us a little bit about how we solve that issue. i know there are mounting calls for the government to change visa rules to get more drivers from abroad to be able to work in the uk. is that the solution?— work in the uk. is that the solution? �* , ., ., solution? it's not the solution, it's art solution? it's not the solution, it's part of _ solution? it's not the solution, it's part of the _ solution? it's not the solution, it's part of the solution. - solution? it's not the solution, it's part of the solution. and i solution? it's not the solution, l it's part of the solution. and it's a very short term part of the solution. but it's better than the government's current idea which is to make lorry drivers work longer hours which is very bad for britain's roads and for them. but we also need more investment to the motorway network to make the job more attractive, we need to treat drivers with respect and just the pay issues, which is happening now. —— we need to address the pay and
6:45 am
condition issues. and we need traineeships from the government. it's not a case of the government saying, it is up to the industry to sort this out. talk to me about that perfect storm as it has been described. the problem is with an ageing workforce, a lack of new drivers entering the industry, a lot of them tiring, and that is on top of them tiring, and that is on top of them tiring, and that is on top of the problems we have talked about means there are not enough drivers —— a lot of them are retiring. yes, we are 100,000 driver short at the moment, we have a historic shortage of 50,000, but 20,000 european drivers have left the industry because of the pandemic, and we have got 40,000 driver exams cancelled because of the pandemic as well. and we have got ageing drivers, the
6:46 am
average age of of driver is late 50s, and we have attrition because there are more drivers leaving the profession every week than there are joining us. latte profession every week than there are 'oinin: us. ~ . ., profession every week than there are 'oinin: us. ~ ., ,, ., �* joining us. we will talk more, i'm sure, joining us. we will talk more, i'm sure. thank— joining us. we will talk more, i'm sure, thank you _ joining us. we will talk more, i'm sure, thank you very _ joining us. we will talk more, i'm sure, thank you very much i joining us. we will talk more, i'm sure, thank you very much rod . sure, thank you very much rod mckenzie at the road haulage association. that is the problem, it's not about a shortage of fuel, it's not about a shortage of fuel, it's about a shortage of the people to get that stuff to places like this. you probably heard this driver has turned up, not quite sure what he is delivering, but it's not petrol. people are still on the roads. think you taking us through that, it is fascinating, we could just sit on this and see what he is delivering... it this and see what he is delivering. . ._ this and see what he is delivering... this and see what he is deliverin: . .. , , ., this and see what he is deliverin: . .. , , . , delivering... it spread. -- it is bread. delivering... it spread. -- it is bread- they — delivering... it spread. -- it is bread. they go, _ delivering... it spread. -- it is bread. they go, vital! - the backlog of people waiting for cancer treatment
6:47 am
in england could take more than decade to clear. according to a report. a report by a medical—research think—tank warns that even if hospitals manage to perform 5% more procedures than before the pandemic, delays in getting a diagnosis mean it could still take until 2033 to eliminate the patient backlog. let's take a look at the figures in more detail. the study found that an estimated 19,500 people that should have been diagosed with cancer, had not been because of missed referrals. it says the pandemic has led to a 37% drop in endoscopies, a 25% decrease in mri scans and there have been 10% fewer ct scans carried out than expected. let's talk about this in more detail now with clinical oncologist professor pat price. good morning. some are listening to those statistics, they might have their mind boggled because there are a lot of numbers in there but the picture seems pretty clear, there is

6:53 am
how much of a learning experience has the whole thing been so far? it's been unbelievable. from finding out what my chest size was to my collarbone to my bellybutton, to putting on sheer, like, snakeskin tops, to learning how to dance. but everything has just been amazing. i thought you were going to give us a flash there! so did i! what's going on? i learnt a lot in rugby which is so unhelpful for dancing. you need stiff ankles in rugby and you need flexible ankles in dancing. you need to be able to lift your arm. yeah, straight, that's something, straight hands above his head. look much pain he's in! but we'll sort that out. i'm not sure the judges need to see that face when i do that. which bit of your body has had the biggest surprise so far? i like these questions! these are the best questions ever.
6:54 am
i would say my entire body. there are things that, when we were in the studio the first day, he was pushing my shoulders back, what's the other one, my hips had to face this way. my legs were doing something very odd. a lot of twisting action she needs to work on at the moment. we need more twisting in your spine. yes, i don't have enough twist in my spine. there is actually quite a serious reason why you wanted to do the show. there is a very serious reason. my beautiful sister, who died five years ago to the day that we started rehearsals, left the world in a glitterball coffin. she was a bit of a disco diva. for real? for real. she had a glitterball coffin? i got her a glitterball coffin. so i'm doing it for her, because she would be thrilled. and she'd be watching slightly like that, probably. i am so sore, i've honestly never been this sore in my life but it's been amazing,

6:58 am
institute under one roof re—opens to the public in london this weekend. the gallery at the francis crick institute closed during the pandemic to serve as a covid vaccination centre. it's now reopening with an exhibition — set in a science lab — exploring the latest cancer research taking place there. one of london's critically acclaimed female directors is calling for theatres to create more opportunities for women like her. ola ince is bring her version of is god is to the royal court. she's keen to see theatres offer more support to female directors. we don't really get to have opportunities like this, we don't really get to take up space and be in big, amazing theatres like the royal court. the royal court is great at championing women, but not every theatre is able to do that. so there is actually probably more women, female directors than there are male, but men get more opportunities, that's not fair, that's how it is.

7:05 am
some have had to close temporarily, while others have run out of one or more types of fuel. rival supplier esso says it's also experienced problems at a small number of the sites it operates in partnership with tesco. the problem isn't a lack of fuel. there's plenty available at the country's refineries. there simply aren't enough tanker drivers to take it to petrol stations. it's part of a much wider problem, a national shortage of lorry drivers. well, it's happened because of a multitude of factors. we've had brexit, we've lost about 20,000 european drivers. we lost 40,000 trucker training tests during the pandemic because of social distancing rules. those tests were cancelled. and we had a historic shortage in this country of tens of thousands of lorry drivers, and that means we've got a shortage now of 100,000. that's already led to bare shelves in supermarkets and other stores, which people within the sector have warned are likely to get worse
7:06 am
in the run—up to christmas. the haulage industry body, logistics uk, says the shortage is a very serious issue, but it has warned consumers against panic buying fuel. that's a call echoed by the government, which says people should refuel as normal. it points out it's already taken steps to make training new hgv drivers quicker and easier. not all petrol retailers are affected by the current problems. morrisons, co—op and sainsbury�*s say their petrol stations are operating as normal. but the fact shortages are occurring at all has highlighted once again how supply chains in the uk are coming under intense strain. theo leggett, bbc news. let's get more from our political correspondent nick eardley, who's in westminster. i suppose it's quite important to put a sense of scale around the problems with the fuel particularly, but it is testament to a wider problem, isn't it, and there are

7:27 am
down for quite a while. and i thought about my postcards, and i said, used to enjoy them. needing a distraction, stu began purchasing postcards in online auctions. and i thought, well, i could open a little facebook group, reach people with the intention of reuniting them with families. and i started putting them on, six at the time, and people started to get interested, and i matched a couple. where do you find the descendants? their descendants, ijust put it on my page. exhausted from his treatment, stu had limitations. people started to pull together to help him to research. i was poorly, and the only way i could, you know, cope was with my researchers. they're fantastic. i'm looking all the time for evidence that will tie the name
7:28 am
to the address and the date. some of the postcards might have a happy birthday, so i will send them a personal message. and how does it feel when she finds them? yes, gotcha! quite early on, stu purchased a postcode that was sent in 1946 to a baby. such a cute card, to a one—year—old, i thought that was absolutely lovely. i put the card on my page. one of my researchers, she contacted me saying, "i've found the baby". then a lady contacted me, "that card is me! that baby is me!" i was chuffed to death. i got a facebook message from stu, talking about this postcard that he'd found. the postcard was sent by her late grandparents. i was amazed. it was for my first
7:29 am
birthday, 74 years ago. when i reunite people like that, i just feel good. i feel like i've given something. i would absolutely love something from my ancestors. i suppose it brought back the memories of them. they're all very long gone. if anything, find out who they are, who they were, where they really came from. when they're still around to answer your silly questions. that's it, i'm going to cry, sorry! ijust wanted to do something and peoplejoined in. out of adversity came something really nice. something usefulfor a big reach of people and i felt really good about it. i felt good about myself. for the first time for quite awhile. part of my recovery, to feel useful. and i think that's,

old's murder believe she was attacked on her way to meet a friend at a pub a week ago. a 38—year—old man has been arrested. the mayor of london says he's still pushing the government to make facecoverings on public transport a national requirement to help stop the spread of coronavirus. it's a condition of travel on tfl services. but sadiq khan says fewer people are now wearing masks and wants the police to be able to issue fines. at the moment, we're not getting the help from the government that we need and as a consequence, people who can't keep their social distance, have to use public transport, are taking a lottery over the chance of potentially catching it because if you aren't wearing a facemask, there is more of a chance of you passing it on if you've got the virus. europe's largest biomedical research institute under one roof re—opens to the public in london this weekend the gallery at the francis crick institute closed during the pandemic to serve as a covid vaccination centre. it's now reopening with an exhibition set in a science lab

7:33 am
as well, perhaps some more cloud feeding in from the west through the afternoon and temperatures likely to reach 23, maybe even 24 celsius. so still above where they should be for late september. overnight tonight, that cloud continues really across all parts and it lingers into saturday. should stay dry tonight, the minimum temperature, it's going to be another mild one between 12 and 15 celsius. so tomorrow morning, again, might be a bit of mistiness around, that cloud is going to linger through saturday but it should stay dry. you'll notice on sunday, a cold front is edging towards us. could see some showers on sunday but also some sunny spells. that cold front moves across overnight bringing some rain and behind it, into the first part of next week, it introduces some cool air. so temperatures finally returning to perhaps where they should be for the time of year, so it is going to feel a little chillier. we've got some spells of rain and the weather generally turning a little more unsettled and autumnal. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in an hour. plenty more on our website at the usual address.
7:34 am
hello, this is breakfast with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. the road haulage association is urging the government to reconsider relaxing visa requirements for foreign lorry drivers, to try to combat the current staff shortages. it comes as a small number of petrol stations were forced to close over a lack of available fuel. we're joined now by the transport secretary grant shapps. good morning. iwonder good morning. i wonder if we could first start specifically with the issue around petrol supplies. can you give us a snapshot of the problem we are facing right now? we problem we are facing right now? - spoke to bp yesterday, the comments they made were from a whole week earlier, they were talking about a long period of time over the summer. they have five, i handful, i think five forecourts closed out of 1200
7:35 am
or so. that was yesterday so that gives an indication, there is no shortage of petrol, there is lot at the refineries, this is as has been described many times about a shortage of drivers, which has been a global problematic covid—19 which had led to less tribes in had led to less tribes —— a global problematic covid—19 which had led to less tribes —— drivers on the road. had led to less tribes -- drivers on the road. , :, , :, ., :, the road. there is no shortage of fuel but if— the road. there is no shortage of fuel but if there _ the road. there is no shortage of fuel but if there is _ the road. there is no shortage of fuel but if there is a _ the road. there is no shortage of fuel but if there is a shortage - the road. there is no shortage of fuel but if there is a shortage of| fuel but if there is a shortage of drivers to get it to the forecourts to be served to car drivers and truck drivers, the problem remains. what is your analysis of the shortage, not necessarily the closures of the forecourts that are closed, what about the shortage? you described closed, what about the shortage? tm. described that accurately, there is plenty of petrol, it needs to get distributed, like all the other goods and services we buy in the supermarket as well, it needs to be got to the location. in terms of the
7:36 am
shortage, we know that there are a lot of drivers who wants to take their hgv, there lorry tests. but their hgv, there lorry tests. but the centre were closed over the coronavirus and about 40,000 could not take their tests over that period of time. we are doing is moving heaven and earth, i have already introduced legislation which has helped to double the number of available testing slots from pre—pandemic levels so we are getting those drivers tested and through and they are joining the marketplace and they are doing so on significantly better salaries as well. so wages have gone up and that is bringing more drivers back into the market as well. we is bringing more drivers back into the market as well.— the market as well. we will come back to the _ the market as well. we will come back to the issue _ the market as well. we will come back to the issue of _ the market as well. we will come back to the issue of petrol - the market as well. we will come back to the issue of petrol in - the market as well. we will come back to the issue of petrol in the | back to the issue of petrol in the pumps in a moment but picking up on one at that thing is, moving heaven and earth is one of those grand phrases, no one knows what that means. in practice, if! phrases, no one knows what that means. in practice, if i were sitting at home now, thinking, i'm listening to the transport secretary and i know there is an issue about not having enough truck drivers, hgv drivers, between now and what are

7:40 am
people are coming in and the case of bp, they use a contractor to deliver their petrol from the refinery stations, they are getting an increasing number of drivers. you already have a attrition in a sector like this with people retiring, but those higher wages which we welcome, i'm pleased to see it, it has been a systemic problem because wages have been undercut and people have been leaving the sector as a result, this is bringing people into the sector, it isn't a question of waiting, there is changes have already been made and we are seeing those tests. can we do a yes and no version of this now? are there more people leaving that industry, truck drivers, then there are joining? the industry says that is a situation. if that is so, then your problem is going to perpetuate, you're not doing anything if there are more leaving thanjoining. doing anything if there are more leaving than joining.— leaving than 'oining. there were over the leaving than joining. there were over the entire _ leaving than joining. there were over the entire coronavirus - leaving than joining. there were i over the entire coronavirus period, and that's why we have this problem, that's why the world has this

7:42 am
are problems with supply and the issueis are problems with supply and the issue is around problems with people to drive the trucks, why not do something now? i don't understand the delay. how does delaying this make things better? for the delay. how does delaying this make things better?— make things better? for a start, there has been _ make things better? for a start, there has been no _ make things better? for a start, there has been no delay. - make things better? for a start, there has been no delay. i- make things better? for a start, i there has been no delay. i already increase the number of tests available by 50% before i changed the law and then got another 50% so we doubled the number of tests. secondly, with regard to things like whether there is a role for the military, obviously if there is, if that can help, we can bring them in. well, can it help? i'm asking you that question. it can help, surely? you can have a driver who is trained with the military who can drive one of these tracks, that can help. there will be technicalities to do with whether they are able to immediately switch over to commercial trucks and so on. there could be other roles for them including the driver testing or training. i'm ruling nothing out, we
7:43 am
are working on lots of different projects, i will say more about those in the future. up until now, we have already doubled the spaces and we are starting to see people coming to the sector to alleviate this problem and what i don't want to do is undermine that in any way as we bring people in, attracted by higher salaries and wages. taste as we bring people in, attracted by higher salaries and wages. we have been asked this _ higher salaries and wages. we have been asked this before _ higher salaries and wages. we have been asked this before and - higher salaries and wages. we have been asked this before and i - higher salaries and wages. we have been asked this before and i will. been asked this before and i will ask it again because because the problems are becoming more acute, are you prepared to relax the rules on european drivers being able to work in the uk? t on european drivers being able to work in the uk?— on european drivers being able to work in the uk? i will do whatever is required — work in the uk? i will do whatever is required if _ work in the uk? i will do whatever is required if that _ work in the uk? i will do whatever is required if that would _ work in the uk? i will do whatever is required if that would help. - work in the uk? i will do whatever| is required if that would help. what i don't want to do, i have been hinting at this, is undercut, as has happened before, with cheaper european drivers, and then find that our drivers dropped out because they are being undercut. that doesn't solve the problem, itjust creates a new problem. i will do whatever is required. there are 6 million europeans with settled and resettled
7:44 am

8:06 am
rival supplier esso says it's also experienced problems at a small number of the sites it operates in partnership with tesco. the problem isn't a lack of fuel. there's plenty available at the country's refineries. there simply aren't enough tanker drivers to take it to petrol stations. it's part of a much wider problem, a national shortage of lorry drivers. well, it's happened because of a multitude of factors. we've had brexit, we've lost about 20,000 european drivers. we lost 40,000 trucker training tests during the pandemic because of social distancing rules. those tests were cancelled. and we had a historic shortage in this country of tens of thousands of lorry drivers, and that means we've got a shortage now of 100,000. that's already led to bare shelves in supermarkets and other stores, which people within the sector have warned are likely to get worse in the run—up to christmas. the haulage industry body, logistics uk, says the shortage
8:07 am
is a very serious issue, but it has warned consumers against panic buying fuel. that's a call echoed by the government, which says people should refuel as normal. it points out it's already taken steps to make training new hgv drivers quicker and easier. not all petrol retailers are affected by the current problems. morrisons, co—op and sainsbury�*s say their petrol stations are operating as normal. but the fact shortages are occurring at all has highlighted once again how supply chains in the uk are coming under intense strain. theo leggett, bbc news. let's get more from our political correspondent nick eardley, who's in westminster. good morning to you. just take us through some of the basics here. there is a clear message to refuel as normal, this is not a panic situation and that has been reiterated many times because of the scale of the issue, but that doesn't hide the fact there is a major

8:11 am
huge backlog of cases we don't yet know about. the report estimates around 19,500 people have not yet been diagnosed with cancer because of missed referrals. diagnostics is a big issue, with the pandemic leading to a 37% drop in endoscopies, a 25% drop in mri scans and 10% fewer ct scans than expected. nhs england says cancer services have now returned to pre—pandemic levels. but the report says if the health service was able to improve that performance by 5%, the backlog would still not be cleared until 2033. and the authors warn that without a big investment in equipment and staff, thousands of people will be left waiting for diagnosis and treatment. dominic hughes, bbc news. restaurant, cafe and pub bosses in the uk, will soon be banned from keeping customer tips left for staff. until now, it's been up to business owners to decide whether the money is divided equally or put back into the company. the government legislation

look how much pain he's in! but we'll sort that out. i'm not sure the judges need to see that face when i do that. which bit of your body has had the biggest surprise so far? i like these questions! these are the best questions ever. i would say my entire body. there are things that, when we were in the studio the first day, he was pushing my shoulders back, what's the other one, my hips had to face this way. my legs were doing something very odd. a lot of twisting action she needs to work on at the moment. we need more twisting in your spine. yes, i don't have enough twist in my spine. there is actually quite a serious reason why you wanted to do the show. there is a very serious reason. my beautiful sister, who died five years ago to the day that we started rehearsals, left the world in a glitterball coffin. she was a bit of a disco diva.
8:25 am
for real? for real. she had a glitterball coffin? i got her a glitterball coffin. so i'm doing it for her, because she would be thrilled. and she'd be watching slightly like that, probably. i am so sore, i've honestly never been this sore in my life but it's been amazing, i'm having so much fun. out of my comfort zone but i think i'm working hard? yes. yeah. you did say it's harder than the olympics and i for some reason celebrated! he's definitely giving it absolutely everything with a smile on his face, he loves it. we'll see how far we get but i don't think there's ever been any olympic champion swimmers who go into world championship dancing. hey! i haven't even done my first dance yet, what am i even thinking about? bbc breakfast is representing, this time, dan walker, what have you made of him so far? he has this grace about him byjust standing there. so i can't wait to see him in a tail
8:26 am
suit, in a ballroom number. because i think it's going to suit him to a tee. i can't wait to see him on the floor. plus nadia is an incredible teacher, and i think he's in incredible, capable hands. i love dan. i love dan, but not as much as my mum. my mum is like, is it all right if we vote dan as well, pet? i was like, mother, come on! howay! because of the way daniel works... she doesn't call me dan, she calls me daniel. i love daniel. that's what you like, you said i can call you, i'm allowed. i said you can call me whatever you like and you've gone for daniel. do many people call you daniel? my mum and nadia. aljaz said you have poise. poise? he said that? he said you look like a dancer. i've already got a new walk, actually, do you want to see it?
8:27 am
i won't walk for you, but this is, this is pre—nadia. this is post nadia, what do you think? whoa. yeah, big change. # talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight # cos we don't need permission to dance. cheering you can watch all of that action on bbc one tomorrow night at 7pm. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning from bbc london. i'm victoria hollins. a vigil is due to be held this who was killed as she walked through a south london park. police investigating the 28 year old's murder believe she was attacked on her way to meet a friend at a pub a week ago. a 38—year—old man has been arrested. the mayor of london says he's
8:28 am
still pushing the government to make facecoverings on public transport a national requirement to help stop the spread of coronavirus. it's a condition of travel on tfl services. but sadiq khan says fewer people are now wearing masks and wants the police to be able to issue fines. at the moment, we're not getting the help from the government that we need and as a consequence, people who can't keep their social distance, have to use public transport, are taking a lottery over the chance of potentially catching it because if you aren't wearing a facemask, there is more of a chance of you passing it on if you've got the virus. one of london's critically acclaimed female directors is calling for theatres to create more opportunities for women like her. ola ince is bringing her version of is god is to the royal court. she's keen to see theatres offer more support to female directors. we don't really get to have opportunities like this, we don't really get to take up space and be in big, amazing theatres like the royal court.
8:29 am
the royal court is great at championing women, but not every theatre is able to do that. so there is actually probably more women, female directors than there are male, but men get more opportunities, that's not fair, that's how it is. well, if you're heading out on public transport this morning, this is how tfl services are looking right now. it's pretty good news, currently all lines are running a good service. woolwich ferry, no service due to strike action. onto the weather now with kate kinsella. good morning. it's a mild start again this morning, temperatures widely in double figures. we do have some mist and some fog patches, a bit of low cloud but that will lift and the cloud breaks. some sunshine this morning, it's going to be another warm day as well, perhaps some more cloud feeding in from the west through the afternoon and temperatures likely to reach 23, maybe even 24 celsius. so still above where they should be for late september.
8:30 am
overnight tonight, that cloud continues really across all parts and it lingers into saturday. should stay dry tonight, the minimum temperature, it's going to be another mild one between 12 and 15 celsius. so tomorrow morning, again, might be a bit of mistiness around, that cloud is going to linger through saturday but it should stay dry. you'll notice on sunday, a cold front is edging towards us. could see some showers on sunday but also some sunny spells. that cold front moves across overnight bringing some rain and behind it, into the first part of next week, it introduces some cool air. so temperatures finally returning to perhaps where they should be for the time of year, so it is going to feel a little chillier. we've got some spells of rain and the weather generally turning a little more unsettled and autumnal. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. plenty more on our website at the usual address.

8:34 am
to the stage as the ryder cup was officially opened in front of thousands of fans. but they know they face some challenge. on paper, america's team is one of the strongest ever with eight of the world's top ten players. but after a year's delay because of covid, there was relief on both sides that one of golf�*s most famous events is finally back. there is no question, the ryder cup is a special occasion, but all things considered, has there ever been the prospect of a ryder cup quite as special as this one? after all the world has been through these past two years, it is such a joy and relief to be standing here in front of you today, and in front of so many of you. well, in just a few hours' time, this long—awaited ryder cup will finally be under way and the stands here will be filled with cheering supporters. but one thing is for certain, not many of them will be cheering for europe. # god bless america! america's home advantage has never been greater. because of travel restrictions to the us, there are just
8:35 am
a sprinkling of european fans here. but padraig harrington's team have been busy winning friends. during final practice, they threw gifts into the crowd and received an enthusiastic welcome. but they will know their opponents are ready for the challenge. they're playing great and they're excited to get going. i mean, i can't tell you how excited they are to get going and get that first tee ball in the air. but europe, remember, have won four of the last five ryder cups, including the most recent one in paris in 2018. they might be the underdogs but they'll be hoping once again for a bit of that ryder cup magic. andy swiss, bbc news, whistling straits. the former arsenal manager arsene wenger has defended his plans to hold a world cup every two years. wenger, who is now fifa's, head of global development, drew criticism from many within the game after he first proposed the idea to hold more
8:36 am
world cups rather than the current one every four years, but in an interview with bbc podcast "the sports desk", he says he is ready "to gamble to make football better. i would say the world cup is such a huge event that i don't think it will diminish the prestige. you want to be the best in the world and you want to be the best in the world every year. so i don't think that to organise a world cup every two years would be diminishing the prestige. next to a record breaking day for england's cricketers as they wrapped up their women's one—day series against new zealand. chasing 245 for victory at derby, captain heather knight hit a century as england got home in the final over to win by three wickets. its their highest ever succesful one day international run chase and means they take an unbeatable 3—1 lead in the series. there's no fairy tale end to the season for wigan warriors, who were said to be devastated after they were beaten
8:37 am
by leeds in the first of the super league eliminators. only one try in the match scored by ash handley, but it was enough to put the rhinos through as they won by eight points to nil. while it's all over now for wigan, leeds go into next week's semifinal against either catalans or st helens. anthonyjoshua has opened up about how he deals with the stress and mental challenge of competing at an elite level. the wba, wbo and ibf world heavyweight champion defends his titles tomorrow against the former undisputed cruiserweight champion oleksandr usyk in london, and says it's the little things in life that matter. it's a lonely sport, yeah. so we're talking now, we're chill, but there will be a time when i'm on my own and thinking about it. when you wake up sometimes, i don't have the best sleep. if you wake up with, thank god i'm awake, thank god for this water i'm about to drink, and i'm happy, it changes the perspective of your day. that's how i've been dealing with all this pressure is, i'm happy to be here,
8:38 am
no pressure, no stress. here on breakfast, we've spoken a lot about the possible link between football and long—term brain injury. this weekend, the first adult match with restrictions on heading will take place to raise awareness of sports—related dementia. it's being organised byjudith gates from the charity head for change. her husband bill played for middlesbrough and has since been diagnosed with a brain injury. fiona trott has been to meet them. right, bill. let's see what we've got here. looking back at a glorious career. that's quite a header that you've had there, isn't it? but one that's thought to have destroyed his health. bill gates quit football at the age of 30. he would head the ball 100 times a day in training, and couldn't bear the migraines any longer. the trainers carried smelling salts in their bags in order to resuscitate, revive players when they had a blow to the head. we've actually subsequently found out that that exacerbates the blow,
8:39 am
because it actually causes the head tojerk back, which is a kind of further problem. but it was the reality of the 60s and 70s. the reality of what footballers like bill are facing in later life has now become a critical conversation. it's not something that happens overnight. but it slowly nibbles at you, at your memory. every day is different. we take each day as it comes, but he knows he's got dementia and he knows there's something different about himself. he talks about feeling different and that he can't think straight sometimes. the first signs were in his sort of mid—605, sort of forgetting people's names at first. it was misplacing his car keys, losing his wallet. dad was brought up in norwich, knows all the roads like the back of his hand, you know. and he was driving back from wroxham to where he lived and got lost. and that was where you're thinking, blimey, you know.
8:40 am
my bill has melted away and i now have a shell as distinct from a personality. bill's first club is in the town where he and judith met. this weekend spennymoor will host the first adult football match with heading restrictions. so here are the rules for this experimental game. in the first half headers are only allowed inside the box, which means players could still finish crosses, but the number of headers should be reduced. in the second half headers are completely banned. and of course both these rules means that of the high force headers from further away shouldn't happen at all. as to whether or not we see it in real life, who knows? you do need to head the ball in certain moments of the game, you know, from corners, when the goalkeeper is kicking it high. so it will be hard to rule heading out of football completely, but you never know in the future. players of the future are at the heart of this campaign.
8:41 am
these children think the balance between safety and instinct will be difficult to strike. got to work it well, but when you get it well enough, then i think it works fine. i think it's more of a reflex. if, during the game, a ball came towards me and it was aiming for my head, i would header it out of the way because that's just the natural thing to do. but i suppose after the game it might make you think a bit more about it. in the game you just kind of act on instinct, i guess. like, if the ball is coming towards you at head height, you head it. there's nothing much else you can do. i've had an injury from a header, which put me out for about six weeks. so that wasn't good. i've been thinking about it since then, but before that i didn't really think about it much. and is that one header going to ruin your life? isit...? yeah, is it going to stop that goal, is it going to be worth it? bill's family say it isn't worth it, and trying to find a solution will form part of his legacy. we want to see what it looks like when you remove heading, in order then to gather the evidence
8:42 am
in order to inform future decision—making. the real bill gates. good looking guy. not so good looking. well, you've done for me all of these years. fiona trott, bbc news, county durham. so many moving stories and people speaking out about this and raising awareness. let's speak now to hayley mcqueen, whose dad, former footballer gordon mcqueen, was diagnosed with vascular dementia earlier this year. thank you for your time, hayley. you're very welcome, hello. t’oe you're very welcome, hello. i've noticed how _ you're very welcome, hello. i've noticed how that _ you're very welcome, hello. i've noticed how that has _ you're very welcome, hello. i've noticed how that has been doing since he last spoke to sally. obviously we have now come to terms with the fact that he's not going to get any better, he's going to get worse. i think for a long time, it's we were all a little bit in denial, it's not vascular dementia, he says he's feeling confused and his head
8:43 am
doesn't feel like, we will get something to fix it and sorted. in football you have an injury and you get over it and you fix it but we have now come to terms with it. went away, managed to take a holiday, we thought it was important to get together, he has three grandkids including my daughter and we just wanted to create special memories for us. a year or so, wanted to create special memories for us. a year orso, he might wanted to create special memories for us. a year or so, he might not remember it and he last about it now. i think what it has been great, —— and he laughs about it now. it's been great we can socialise more now, covid has been a nightmare, the one thing he likes to do is socialise, he was very much the life and soul of the party. hearing from bill's wife, bill is a shell of his former self and my dad is as well, we can all see that. we are appreciating the fact that we have still got him and we can still spend time with him whilst he does recognise us and know who we are. we
8:44 am
are grateful of that. i definitely think being around people and having friends dropping in and out of the houseis friends dropping in and out of the house is going to help. but he gets very tired. one of the things you don't realise with dementia, you just think it is a loss of memory and you are not going to know people in the short term things, but for him, he has to concentrate so hard, he gets very tired because his brain is working overtime. but he's ok. tbts is working overtime. but he's 0k. as you are suggesting, it is a challenge for the whole family to deal with on a day—to—day basis. it must help that families like yours are speaking up en masse, so many former players are coming forward. yeah, and there are people at home who are around those who have not played sport of football, and might be feeling a bit alone. i have a voice, i have a social media following and they want to make sure that people like that who are at home and feeling very alone or depressed know that there is actually help out there. i have been
8:45 am
in touch with alzheimer's society who are wonderful and they have reached out to me to ask if we need help and we have gone to them for, more information, but if you are a wife or husband of somebody who is, they are needing 24/7 care at home and you don't have family around or you don't have neighbours who can help. there are always people who can help, there are experts, and there are these charitable organisations who are very much there to provide you with research, help and care and respite, and prepare you for what might be to come. those will end up with —— there are those who will end up in a home and it's preparing for that emotionally and physically. host home and it's preparing for that emotionally and physically. how much of a ste - , emotionally and physically. how much of a step. how — emotionally and physically. how much of a step, how significant _ emotionally and physically. how much of a step, how significant is _ emotionally and physically. how much of a step, how significant is it - emotionally and physically. how much of a step, how significant is it to - of a step, how significant is it to have this match on this weekend, the idea of football being played with

8:47 am
the ball. if there is a younger generation who are taught to play football in a different way, not heading the ball, i think football will change and for the better as well, it has to. tt will change and for the better as well, it has to.— well, it has to. it will be interesting _ well, it has to. it will be interesting to _ well, it has to. it will be interesting to see - well, it has to. it will be interesting to see how. well, it has to. it will be| interesting to see how it well, it has to. it will be - interesting to see how it works. what else away from this do you think needs to be done? government hel. think needs to be done? government help- there's — think needs to be done? government help. there's only _ think needs to be done? government help. there's only so _ think needs to be done? government help. there's only so much _ think needs to be done? government help. there's only so much the - think needs to be done? government help. there's only so much the pfa i help. there's only so much the pfa and the fa can do. the pfa have failed in the past and they are making really tense now to make sure that they are very much, you know, liaising with the fa, government bodies, to look at what they're going to do going forward as i say as well, with regards to reserves and academy players, things are changing there. i think there is something being brought in next month which is going to implemented to stop access heading of the ball in training. the fa have a wonderful national team manager of the men's team, gareth southgate, who is
8:48 am
behind this programme, leading some of the research with the experts involved. and i think having someone like him as the head of the national team, that will filter through and having somebody so high—profile, making sure that the football association are doing something about it. but i have felt for quite about it. but i have felt for quite a long time that there have just been meetings about meetings, and it's like, we need to have change and it needs to happen very soon. and definitely the government, i think, needs to take charge of this for sure. latte think, needs to take charge of this for sure. ~ ., :, ., , :, for sure. we have to leave this now but it is an — for sure. we have to leave this now but it is an issue _ for sure. we have to leave this now but it is an issue we _ for sure. we have to leave this now but it is an issue we will— for sure. we have to leave this now but it is an issue we will keep - but it is an issue we will keep following and thank you to you and your family, following and thank you to you and yourfamily, all the better following and thank you to you and your family, all the better your dad. so important about the help available to families, things like the out some society. such an important —— the alzheimer's society. tt important -- the alzheimer's socie . . important -- the alzheimer's socie . , ., ,. ., society. it will be fascinating, i don't know _ society. it will be fascinating, i don't know if _ society. it will be fascinating, i don't know if there _ society. it will be fascinating, i
