in germany, where voters will elect a new chancellor tomorrow. the uk government is set to formally announce a visa scheme on sunday that will make it easier for foreign drivers to work in the uk. it's expected the scheme will be temporary and issue visas for about 5,000 drivers to tackle the hgv driver shortage. the road haulage association estimates the uk is short of about 100,000 hgv drivers — with existing shortages made worse by the pandemic and brexit. the bbc understands the government will also announce a raft of longer—term measures including training up more drivers and addressing the backlog

of driving tests. 0ur transport correspondent, caroline davies reports. chicken, milkshakes, now petrol. a shortage of lorry drivers continues to bite across the uk, and as the problem grows, there is more pressure on the government to make changes. bp reported they were having trouble getting their petrol to some pumps. there is enough fuel, just not enough drivers to take it to the petrol stations. although the problem only affected a small number of sites, people worried that they could run out, began to buy more than they normally would, leading to huge queues, despite the government reassurances. now one firm, eg group, who run 400 petrol stations, have said they are limiting each customer to £30 of fuel, excluding hgv drivers and emergency services. there is plenty of fuel and the issue is obviously the lead time of getting it from terminal to forecourt, and we ask the motorist to be sensible, do not alter your refuelling patterns. if you have a need to refuel,
12:03 pm
obviously go and get fuel, but bearing in mind that some of the sites, you might be in a queue, so keep a little bit of fuel in your vehicle in order to drive to an alternative site if you have to. but there's plenty of fuel around and people should not panic buy. until now, the government has resisted calls to provide temporary visas to eu drivers to help fill the gap as it has argued it does not want the uk lorry drivers to drop out because they are undercut by cheaper eu labour. however, last night, the government said it was looking at temporary measures, although it stressed these would be strictly time—limited. there is increasing pressure to take some action, particularly to stop the crisis getting worse in the run—up to christmas. caroline davies, bbc news. tom reddy willjoin join them. he's handed his notice in.

12:07 pm
informed about the realities of it. the government is introducing this temporary visa scheme to enable drivers to come here from abroad. to try to help with the shortfall. 5000 drivers will be able to come for six months to work. what you think about that? it’s months to work. what you think about that? �* , ., months to work. what you think about that? �*, ., , ., that? it's vital, absolutely vital. it is lonl that? it's vital, absolutely vital. it is long overdue _ that? it's vital, absolutely vital. it is long overdue and _ that? it's vital, absolutely vital. | it is long overdue and something that? it's vital, absolutely vital. - it is long overdue and something the industry myself have been pushing for quite hard. there is no certainty that it is the solution but at least we have to have the mechanism in place of allow that to happen. perhaps the problem is with increasing salaries they have been tempted away from the tankers into other roles which may carry less response ability. i think that may have happened and that is why we sin problem. but there is no guarantee that eu workers want to come back because conditions in those eu countries have risen and in many cases they can be closer to their family on the job is just as appealing there. we can hope, always positive in this industry, it will help, at least in the meantime because that is the only short—term solution. i because that is the only short-term solution. , ,., ~' because that is the only short-term solution. , ,., ,, ., because that is the only short-term solution. , ., , solution. i spoke to somebody earlier who —

solution. i spoke to somebody earlier who works _ solution. i spoke to somebody earlier who works for - solution. i spoke to somebody earlier who works for a - solution. i spoke to somebody l earlier who works for a company solution. i spoke to somebody - earlier who works for a company that trains lorry drivers and asked what the sort of shortest period that it's possible for there to be between someone deciding to be a lorry driver and actually getting on roads and he said two weeks. 0bviously currently there is the backlog in driving tests, which it can be up to an 18 week for a driving test, is that is not possible. but in terms of actual safety and experience, i mean, how skilled a job is it? what experience does somebody need to be able to safely drive a lorry? so does somebody need to be able to safely drive a lorry?— safely drive a lorry? so it's a question _ safely drive a lorry? so it's a question of— safely drive a lorry? so it's a question of the _ safely drive a lorry? so it's a question of the licensing, i safely drive a lorry? so it's a question of the licensing, it| safely drive a lorry? so it's a l question of the licensing, it is only one small part of it. once you have a license in your hand as you mention, it is very severe, so two weeks is a perfect scenario, you could be looking at months. to do with delays in the licensing organisation as well. we need that to level up as well. yeah, to be honest, once you have the license you are looking i8 honest, once you have the license you are looking 18 months before you are perhaps an experienced useful
12:09 pm
drive in the industry. it takes a lot of on—the—job experience, nothing you can learn under training. this is not to be, you know, forgotten about and this is why the visa is so important. because 0k we could put 100,000 drivers through or whatever over the next year but they need that time to gain experience. there is a problem with ensuring these drivers as well, insurance companies don't want to know less than two is exposed because of inexpensive drivers. tom, thank ou because of inexpensive drivers. tom, thank you very _ because of inexpensive drivers. tom, thank you very much _ because of inexpensive drivers. tom, thank you very much for _ because of inexpensive drivers. tom, thank you very much forjoining us. let's speak to our correspondent peter harris. he isa he is a petrol stationjust he is a petrol station just outside leeds. tell us what is happening. shes leeds. tell us what is happening. is you can leeds. tell us what is happening. 23 you can see it is fairly busy, i don't think you can call it chaotic in any case though. there are certainly some queues here but very manageable. they have actually brought some marshalls on, i don't if you can make out some people there in yellowjackets if you can make out some people there in yellow jackets just if you can make out some people there in yellowjackets just keeping things in order. so things pretty much under control here, which is a
12:10 pm
picture that other retailers are giving us. yes, there have certainly been some problems yesterday and some drivers clearly were spooked by the possibility of shortages of fuel but sainsbury�*s was saying while they have been busy on their forecourts, only a small number of sites were actually closed. bp said it closed around about 20 out of 1200 forecourts that it has. so clearly a limited problem in that respect. but obviously with this wider issue as the road haulage association have said, we are short of about 100,000 hgv drivers in this country. and as you've been discussing, that is why are expecting some kind of announcement from the government over the weekend, temporary visas, 5000 lorry drivers coming into the country to try and alleviate that problem. and possibly something around training as well. the government though has remained, there isn't actually a shortage of fuel. there is plenty up the refineries and if people stick to their normal buying habits then
12:11 pm
we should be ok. so clearly, as you can see here, it is easy. we couldn't say it is chaotic, it is certainly quite manageable still at the moment, which of course his what government will hope people do, stick to what you normally do. thank ou, stick to what you normally do. thank you. peter- — a tense diplomatic and legal standoff between the united states, china and canada has come to an abrupt conclusion. the huawei executive meng wanzhou is flying back to china after being released from home detention in canada, following the temporary resolution of a us legal case against her. in return, china has released two canadians it had imprisoned on espionage charges. david willis reports. leaving her home in vancouver for the last time, after nearly three years of house arrest, meng wanzhou, a key figure in one of china's biggest companies, was facing extradition on charges of helping to evade us economic sanctions on iran. she was freed suddenly after striking a deal with us prosecutors, which saw her admit in a virtual appearance before a new york
12:12 pm
courtroom to lying to banks on huawei's behalf. in return, the usjustice department dropped its extradition request. over the past three years, my life has been turned upside down. it was a disruptive time for me as a mother, a wife, and as a company executive. but i believe every cloud has a silver lining. it really was an invaluable experience in my life. huawei is the largest telecom equipment manufacturer in the world, but its success unnerved the trump administration, which accused the company of using its technology to spy on the us. meng wanzhou's detention was all the more controversial given
12:13 pm
she is the daughter of huawei's founder, and it prompted the arrest of two canadian citizens in china — diplomat michael kovrig coverage and businessmen michael spavor — in what the canadian government branded an act of hostage diplomacy. to the delight of the canadian prime minister, they have now been released as well. about 12 minutes ago, the aircraft carrying michael kovrig and michael spavor left chinese airspace and they are on their way home. they boarded at about 7:30 0ttawa time, along with dominic barton, canada's ambassador to china. meng wanzhou left canada on an air china flight bound for shen zen, but any prospect of a thaw in the adversarial relationship between the united states and china may prove to be short lived. huawei remains on a trade blacklist here and still faces charges
12:14 pm
of corporate espionage. david willis, bbc news, los angeles. let's speak to charles parton, former senior british diplomat in china, and associate fellow at the council on geostrategy. he's in clapham, south london and is also a friend and is also a friend of michael kovrig. thank you very much forjoining us. have you been able to speak to michael since he was released? ida. michael since he was released? no, i haven't. i would _ michael since he was released? no, i haven't. i would say _ michael since he was released? no, i haven't. i would say i _ michael since he was released? no, i haven't. i would say i worked - haven't. i would say i worked relatively closely with michael in beijing but i wouldn't describe myself as an intimate of him and certainly not the last three years. 0k, certainly not the last three years. ok, so it has obviously been a huge thing for him and his loved ones that he has now been released. in what has been described as hostage diplomacy. how would you explain hostage diplomacy? that diplomacy. how would you explain hostage diplomacy?— diplomacy. how would you explain hostage diplomacy? that is precisely what is. it's an _ hostage diplomacy? that is precisely what is. it's an indication _ hostage diplomacy? that is precisely what is. it's an indication that - what is. it's an indication that china, orthe what is. it's an indication that china, or the chinese communist party, is not prepared to stand by
12:15 pm
the dictates of international law or agreement that it signed, just an instance of that it has a consular agreement with canada and that late lays down conditions that when people are arrested that you are allowed to visit them and that was never allowed. so it is undoubtedly a very good lesson to us on to more governments in the way that china is prepared, frankly, to go well beyond any norms of international accepted behaviour or law in order to pursue the communist party's aims. and clearly was hostage diplomacy, they deny that all along nothing i think reinforces that more than a moment she is released, so are the two michael's. and right through the crisis from the start whenever there was a move in america or canada or in anticipation of it, within a day or two the chinese made a move. so they arrested the two michael's nine
12:16 pm
months after she was arrested. and thenit months after she was arrested. and then itjust went on and on like that with the trick solution the underlying quite clearly that this was hostage diplomacy. and it is not the first time, they did in 2014, again with canadians, because the americans had arrested a for spying, taking military aviation secrets which he eventually pleaded guilty to. and he was injailfor two years on trumped up charges. so there is a pattern there and it is extremely worrying, i think of the future. yeah, you said there are lessons to be learned but what lessons can be learned? ~ ., be learned but what lessons can be learned? . ., , learned? well, i mean the first lesson is to _ learned? well, i mean the first lesson is to understand - learned? well, i mean the first lesson is to understand the - learned? well, i mean the first. lesson is to understand the nature of the chinese communist party and the fact that it won't stick by legal agreements or by the norms of international behaviour. and another lesson to learn is thatjust how
12:17 pm
close the communist party and the company are the effort that the communist party has put in to getting them at one away from the processes ofjustice in canada and america is a very good illustration. and therefore you know i think uk, the us, japan and other countries that have turned their backs on two to —— turn to. he will not use huawei. to -- turn to. he will not use huawei-— huawei. in terms of hostage diplomacy — huawei. in terms of hostage diplomacy and _ huawei. in terms of hostage diplomacy and if _ huawei. in terms of hostage diplomacy and if a _ huawei. in terms of hostage diplomacy and if a high - huawei. in terms of hostage i diplomacy and if a high profile chinese citizen is arrested in wales in the world, presumably what you are saying is exactly the same
12:18 pm
scenario could unfold again. what can be done to stop that? i scenario could unfold again. what can be done to stop that?- can be done to stop that? i don't think a great _ can be done to stop that? i don't think a great deal— can be done to stop that? i don't think a great deal can _ can be done to stop that? i don't think a great deal can be. - can be done to stop that? i don't think a great deal can be. in - can be done to stop that? i don't i think a great deal can be. in terms of certain individuals and i'm one of certain individuals and i'm one of them but there are many others actually when i talk to fellow think tankers, academics and people in other areas. we are not prepared to go back to hong kong or china because although the risk of being arrested is extremely small, the consequences are extremely large. so if there were to be a disagreement of sums political sop to uk and china we might well find that a british citizen gets arrested. and a lot of people are not prepared to take that risk. i think that is very dangerous in the long term because if countries aren't talking to each other as much as they should, it is extremely bad for understanding. so we're to get this sort of iron curtain of ignorance imposed i think i beijing's behaviour and it is not
12:19 pm
good for the world.— i beijing's behaviour and it is not good for the world. thank you very much forjoining _ good for the world. thank you very much forjoining us. _ prince andrew's us lawyers have accepted he has been served with legal papers alleging that he sexually assaulted virginia giuffre in 2001. it follows a dispute over whether the prince had been formally notified of the civil claim against him. ms giuffre is seeking unspecified damages. prince andrew, has consistently denied the allegation. sunday marks the end of a political era in germany, when voters go to the polls to choose a leader to replace angela merkel, who's spent 16 years as chancellor. a generation of young germans have known no other leader. one of the big issues of the election campaign has been climate change — with activists holding rallies in cities across the country. ros atkins is in potsdam for us, at a town hall meeting held by the spd candidate 0laf scholz. high. you join me wear as we see
12:20 pm
german democracy in action because one of those candidates who would like to replace angela merkel is doing a town hall here in a square ljy doing a town hall here in a square by supermarketjust over here. you can just about spot through the crowd and he is taking questions from people gathered here. he is the leader of the social democrats, they're on the centre—left of the german political spectrum. at the moment there in the lead by the not ljy moment there in the lead by the not by much in the polls. they were third going back a couple of months' time. we watching very closely to see how all the candidates make their pitch to replace angela merkel because they all acknowledge she is a titan of german politics, she shaped german politics really the last 16 years, is all of them have to step out of her shadow and try to create a vision of what they will do with germany if they in charge. thank you, ross. a book of condolence has been opened in south london in memory
12:21 pm
of the 28—year—old primary school teacher, sabina nessa, who was attacked and killed a week ago. hundreds of mourners gathered for an emotional candlelit vigil in kidbrooke last night. more than 500 people gathered at pegler square, not far from where a wanted suspect was captured on cctv. 0ur correspondent megan paterson is in south london where the vigil took place last night. let's speak to megan paterson, who's there for us now. what's the latest there? lots and lots of flowers. the number that growing every time we come to you actually, megan. growing every time we come to you actually. megan-— growing every time we come to you actually, megan. absolutely. by the hour we have _ actually, megan. absolutely. by the hour we have seen _ actually, megan. absolutely. by the hour we have seen a _ actually, megan. absolutely. by the hour we have seen a steady - actually, megan. absolutely. by the hour we have seen a steady stream | actually, megan. absolutely. by the l hour we have seen a steady stream of people coming down to leave cards, flowers, candles, posters, messages written by children. the community coming out again today to show their solidarity and show their sorrow and to grieve for sabina nessa near the scene where her body was found last saturday afternoon by a member of the public walking her dog. and just down the trees is a community centre and that is where the book of condolence has been open this morning. the community centre has been shot most of this week because
12:22 pm
it has been within the police cordon and it has been part of that murder investigation scene. the staff there this morning telling me they thought it was really crucial that they opened up today. normally on a saturday they would have children's football lessons on in the centre. they have rearrange those and they have devoted the centre to that book of condolence. there is a quiet room for prayer and reflection. they are inviting the community to go in there and to share their grief and their tributes to sabina nessa. that book will be given to her family and they hope can be a space where the community comes back together because of this week of course much of this park has been cordoned off. there has been a level of anxiety, a level of fear about walking around the space, a space that people are very used to using. it is a very well used park here. so that book of condolence opening this morning. at the square last night as you say hundreds of people turned out that visual, very moving. we heard from sabina �*s sister. a system much missed by herfamily, by her nieces,
12:23 pm
by the children who she taught at her at the prime school. many of the people that visual didn't know win but were moved to go and pay tribute to her. discussions now this morning about women's safety, how we try and make people feel safe in this community, notjust here in this community, notjust here in this community but across london and across the country. so reflection here again as the murder investigation continues. thank you, me . an. the labour leader sir keir starmer has arrived at the party's conference, with all signs that his proposed changes to the way the leader is elected have been shelved. sir keir had wanted to ditch the one—member—one—vote system and return to giving trades unions and mps two—thirds of the votes cast in any future contest. but the idea faced strong resistance from many on the left of the party. 0ur correspondent helen catt has the latest. that particular issue that had been suggested earlier this week, that switching the one member one moment when you elect a labour leader, to
12:24 pm
the electra college where mps vote would count for a third and union votes would count for third. that we understand has been abandoned but there are still plans to try and change the way that some elements of the leadership election would work. so what we understand is that they are looking to increase the number of nominations mps that someone would need to get to get the ballad of moment. at the moment 10% of the parliamentary labour party, 10% of labour mps need to nominate somebody for them to become a candidate. it is understood that they are proposing increasing that to 25%, which of course is quite a bit of a jump. when i think that is still likely to face some resistance. 0bviously, likely to face some resistance. obviously, we have seen of the last few days as you say a backlash to some of these planned changes. last night, the former leaderjeremy corbyn accused sir keir starmer of trying to shut down debate and isolate the grassroots. sources close to keir starmer say they're trying to put these changes through because there will better connect
