this is bbc news with the latest headlines: after days of queuing at the pumps, the army will begin delivering fuel to petrol stations across the uk from monday. the home secretary says police must "raise the bar" by taking the harassment of women more seriously. a view echoed by the health secretary, sajid javid. the a view echoed by the health secretary, sajid javid. secretary, sa'id javid. the reforms are riaht, secretary, sa'id javid. the reforms right. we— secretary, sajid javid. the reforms are right, we need _ secretary, sajid javid. the reforms are right, we need to _ secretary, sajid javid. the reforms are right, we need to be _ secretary, sajid javid. the reforms are right, we need to be looking i secretary, sajid javid. the reformsi are right, we need to be looking at what government can do to help build that confidence. the queen officially opens the sixth session of the scottish parliament at holyrood. provisional clinical trial results suggest an experimental drug for severe covid cuts the risk of hospitalisation or death by about half. and two new streams of lava pose a further threat of destruction as the la palma volcano forces thousands more to flee.
2:01 pm
good afternoon. the group which represents most of the uk filling stations says the fuel situation is getting worse in london, the south east and parts of eastern england. but the petrol retailers' association also says scotland, the north of england and parts of the midlands have seen what it calls a "distinct improvement". the government has announced that 100 military drivers will start delivering fuel to petrol stations from monday. our business correspondent katy austin reports. there were queues to fuel again this morning in parts of southern england. this is the first time i'm queuing up because my boy normally gets it for me,
2:02 pm
but today, oh, my gosh. the organisation which represents independent forecourts says the supply picture has improved in the midlands, the north of england and into scotland. no problems at all, ijust put £100 in. a few days ago it was hard but i think it's picking up. i there is a warning the situation appears to be worsening in london and the south—east. we've been asking government and i had a long conversation with grant shapps this morning. it's very good. the government are talking closely to industry about the problems and i've asked him that the prioritisation now go to london and the south—east and to the independent forecourts which make up 65% of all forecourts across the uk. 200 military personnel have been called to help with deliveries, 100 of them are drivers. they are currently training before the first cohort to start on monday.
2:03 pm
the first big amount will be working through this weekend, deploying on monday, probably on their own and then by the end of the weekend another 60 or 70 will come online. this comes amid a chronic shortage of hgv drivers across the economy. last weekend visas were announced for 5000 to come in from overseas lasting until christmas eve. that includes 300 fuel tanker drivers. now we know they will be able to start immediately and the length of time they can stay in the uk has been extended to the end of march. a700 of the visas are for food lorry drivers. they won't be able to start until later this month but the length of their stay has also been extended until the end of february. the government still says visas are only a short—term fix and businesses must invest in building the domestic workforce. ministers insist the fuel situation will continue to improve if people buy only what they need.
2:04 pm
even when supply levels return to normal, motorists are being told they should expect to pay more as wholesale prices rise. katy austin, bbc news. let's go live to the conservative party conference which opens tomorrow. is there at the monk. you are absolutely right, there is the fact you have these issues with fuel, you add into the mix for rising energy prices we are seeing, you add inflation which many tory mps are really worried about and you have this nervous air that although the conservative party is in quite a strong position electorally and in
2:05 pm
parliament, there are nervous about exactly what the next few months and weeks are going to look like. specifically on the fuel point, i think there is a hope in downing street that we are past the worst of this, they have been saying that for a few days but it has been a consistent message that even if there are pockets of problems like in the south—east of england, other parts of the country like where i am in manchester are getting better. that said the government is doing some things that it didn't want to do, so we didn't particularly want to send in the army to send petrol tankers around the country from monday but it is also bearing in mind how the government's position has changed over the last couple of weeks when it comes to visas. we hear consistently from boris johnson that he doesn't think hear consistently from borisjohnson that he doesn't think immigration is the answer to supply chain issues. he wants people to get betterjobs and better pay and that will encourage more folk into the hgv
2:06 pm
driving industry, but overnight the pressures are such notjust in a field but in general that 300 emergency visas are being issued in the next few days, and the a500 visas that the government is issuing more broadly for htv drivers, the time for which they will apply has been extended as well. they were supposed to run untiljust before christmas, they will now run until the end of february. there is also another says about those supply chains. and as you say, the backdrop to this conference where boris johnson wants to talk about the economy rebounding after covid, getting some of his plans on track, you can see it back there, getting on with the job, that can be tricky when you have all those other pressures. the uk's home secretary has said police must "raise the bar" by taking the harassment of women more seriously. priti patel said crimes such as indecent exposure and verbal
2:07 pm
abuse should not be taken lightly. she said women should feel confident to call out such offences. ministers have promised reform to the criminaljustice system, after the murder of sarah everard by a serving police officer. simonjones reports. the death of sarah everard prompted an outpouring of public grief. now the government says it's determined her murder will bring about permanent change in how society deals with violence against women and girls. the prime minister says there are too few prosecutions and convictions for sexual violence. the time from report to referral, from referral to court proceedings, from court proceedings to the conclusion — all three of those segments — is far too long. and what you're seeing is the whole system snarled up with evidential problems, data issues, mobile phones disclosure, all that kind of stuff, and it's a nightmare for the women concerned.
2:08 pm
wayne couzens kidnapped, raped and murdered sarah everard. he then dumped her body in woodland in kent. cars registered to him had previously been linked to two allegations of indecent exposure, but he wasn't identified as a potential sex offender. it's claimed couzens also used a whatsapp group to swap misogynistic messages with officers from the metropolitan police, the civil nuclear constabulary and the norfolk constabulary. we've also got to address the issues going on within the police force, and you'll have seen this stuff about the officers on the whatsapp group. we've got to come down very hard on them. the home secretary says the police must raise the bar by taking harassment and flashing more seriously. priti patel told the telegraph, they should not be considered low level crimes. the met says it's putting more officers in places where people feel unsafe. we're absolutely committed to tackling violence against women and girls.
2:09 pm
that is going to be our focus. it is one of our priorities. so you will see us out on patrol in hot spots. but there are calls for more scrutiny of the police themselves. this has been going on for many, many years and i'm rather tired of hearing police forces say "we are going to learn lessons from some tragedy." the lessons don't seem to be learned, and the lessons are that women's suffering of this kind of stuff has to stop. and women up and down the country are saying that. and you have to listen, and police forces are not doing that. and so it has to be listened at a lower level, and i'm sorry that means resourcing and more police available and more money put into policing and into the court system. but we also have to have much better processes of training police and those in the justice system. 0pposition politicians accused the government of starving the police and courts of resources, but there's a growing consensus that the death of sarah everard must act as a watershed moment. simon jones, bbc news.
2:10 pm
earlier we heard from the health secretary sajid javid who said there needs to be more confidence given to women and girls about their safety. what the metropolitan police have said about the reforms they will be looking at is absolutely right. we also need to look at what more government can do to build confidence. this is obviously an appalling, shocking case, and we must make sure that at least something that comes out of this is that we can give more confidence to more women about their own safety. an american private investment company has won a bidding war for morrisons, the uk's fourth biggest supermarket. clayton, dubilier and rice offered almost £7 billion for the group. it's advised by the former tesco boss, sir terry leahy. vaccine passports came into effect for the first time in scotland last night. people need proof of vaccination to gain entry to nightclubs or large events.
2:11 pm
the scheme will be mandatory from the 18th of october. it is being trialled at some football stadiums at scottish premiership matches this afternoon. megan paterson reports. a night out in glasgow. as well as showing id, vaccine passports too. some people will definitely be driven to get vaccinated in order to participate in this kind of event. it's definitely an incentive but my main reason is to be protected, obviously. i don't agree with the whole concept of, like, you know, | having to show something to get into a club — i don't agree with that in terms of freedom. i proof of two doses of vaccines will be shown for people over 18 entering nightclubs and any event with more than 10,000 people in attendance. for some club owners there is concern about what it means for customers. it is disappointing there isn't an option for people who don't want to get vaccinated. we are not respecting their opinions by being able to submit
2:12 pm
a negative lateral flow. at football grounds including ibrox, today will be the first test of the scheme at matches. the app has been plagued with technical problems and although it went live yesterday it won't be enforceable until the 18th, causing confusion for clubs. aberdeen have postponed the trailing of proof of vaccine for entry at sunday's premiership meeting and hearts and rangers say no—one will be refused entry at their test events against motherwell and hibs. with access to the terraces, dance floors and elsewhere soon to be reliant on the vaccine passport, the scottish government's reissued reassurances about the apps capacity, saying systems have been improved to better cope with demand. megan paterson, bbc news. some charities have warned that many vulnerable people are still waiting for a third dose of a covid vaccine. 0fficials recommended the jabs for eligible patients a month
2:13 pm
ago but kidney care uk and blood cancer uk say the rollout has gone "badly wrong". nhs england say all those affected should be offered the injection by the end of next week. there could be a breakthrough in the way we treat covid 19. interim trials suggest a new, experimental drug could cut the risk of hospitalisation, or death, by about half. if authorised by regulators, the treatment will be the first oral, antiviral medication for covid19. mark lobel reports. this is the first covid pill. trial results suggest it can cut hospitalisations or deaths by half. the news of the efficacy of this particular antiviral is obviously very good news. the company, when they briefed us last night, had mentioned that they will be submitting their data to the fda imminently. the data are impressive. pills were given to 775
2:14 pm
unvaccinated, elderly or medically at risk volunteers within five days of them showing coronaviruses symptoms. the data from a phase three trial showed 7.3% of patients on the drug were hospitalised, compared to 1a.1% of those who didn't take the tablets. eight patients who were given a placebo or dummy pill later died of covid, but there were no deaths in the group taking the pill. the trial was stopped early because the pill was so successful. but data still needs to be peer reviewed. so how does it work? as coronavirus replicates itself inside your body, these antiviral pills trick it into using the drug, which then inserts errors into the virus�*s genetic code, blocking the virus from replicating. it completely corrupts the genome of the virus so it can't replicate, and that's the beauty. and then, even if the virus mutates,
2:15 pm
it could be still useful. people are now talking about this, that if we have another coronavirus pandemic in the future, this drug will still work for that coronavirus. because it is agnostic to variants. there are existing clinic—based intravenous treatments which are even more effective, but this appears to be the first pill to treat covid, and as long as it's taken early on could offer an alternative at roughly a third of the price — at $700 per treatment. accessibility is a problem with a monoclonal antibody. for this one, it's a simple pill so obviously a lot easier to administer and a lot easier to administer as an outpatient as well. merck hopes 10 million courses of the treatment will be available by the end of the year. it has agreed to supply the us with close to 2 million, and to license the drug to several india—based generic drug makers, which could supply it to low and middle—income countries.
2:16 pm
for countries that don't have the vaccine available, this could be another stopgap. the us authorities say the drug is no substitute for preventative vaccines, but this is an exciting development — as the us drug company seeks emergency approval within weeks as the first company to report trial results of an effective and relatively cheap pill to treat covid. as others companies also work on similar treatments. mark lobel, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news: the home secretary says police must "raise the bar" by taking the harassment of women more seriously. after days of queuing at the pumps, the army will begin delivering fuel to petrol stations across the uk from monday. provisional clinical trial results suggest an experimental drug for severe covid cuts the risk of hospitalisation or death by about half.
2:17 pm
the queen has been addressing msps at holyrood to mark the opening of the sixth session of the scottish parliament. this will be the snp�*s fourth consecutive term in government, following their election victory in may. the ceremony would normally take place injuly, but was postponed because of coronavirus. alexandra mackenzie reports. the queen and the duke and duchess of rothesay made the shortjourney from the palace of holyroodhouse to the scottish parliament. they were greeted by the party leaders including the first minister nicola sturgeon. msps gathered as the mace and crown of scotland were placed in the chamber, symbolising this new session of parliament. marking this new session does indeed bring a sense of beginning and renewal. the scottish parliament has been
2:18 pm
at the heart of scotland's response to the pandemic, with people across this country looking to you for leadership and stewardship and i hope you will remain at the forefront as we move towards a phase of recovery. due to the pandemic, much of the music was recorded around the country, like here in plockton. and this group of asylum seeking and refugee musicians in glasgow. those of us who sit in the chamber will disagree, often and often vigorously. but in the years ahead we will also, i hope, find the resolve and the courage to reach beyond our disagreements and find consensus and common purpose where we can. the queen also used her speech to reflect on happy memories of the many times she spent
2:19 pm
in scotland with her late husband, the duke of edinburgh. she said this was a time to look to the future and a new generation. alexandra mackenzie, bbc news. delegates at a meeting in the run up to next month's cop26 climate change summit have agreed that a 100 billion dollarfinance pledge has to be delivered on. the money is to help poorer countries cope with rising temperatures. alok sharma, the british minister in charge of cop26, was speaking in milan where climate ministers from around the world are holding talks. it is on all of us but particularly the 620 it is on all of us but particularly the g20 nations. there was a discussion around the fact we need to deliver on the 100 billion a year and i have said many times before,
2:20 pm
and i have said many times before, and i have said many times before, and i repeat again that delivering on the 100 billion is a matter of trust and of course at this conference, we need to start the discussion on what comes in terms of post 2025 but the delivery on 100 billion will be vital. as representatives drift away from this meeting in milan, there is a sense of cautious optimism that there is hope we can really tackle climate change and get to an agreement to that crucial un climate conference in glasgow in a month's time, but also there is a lot of work to be done. in his closing press conference, the us climb convoy said there was the pressure needs to be put on china and india to deliver on what they have promised. to put in writing what they will do to limit emissions and
2:21 pm
reach that climate agreement in glasgow. two major issues have stood out in this gathering and that is that 1.5 celsius threshold, this is the critical number that scientists have said beyond which we get to the much more dangerous impacts of climate change and the more vulnerable nations really want us to stay on the trajectory to keep that target within reach. also finance. developed nations, the richest nations responsible for most of the emissions need to step up and deliver on a promise they made a decade ago to pay developing countries $100 billion every single year to be able to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate. the volcano that's been erupting for the past 11 days on the spanish island of la palma is spewing out two new streams of lava, threatening further destruction. it isa
2:22 pm
it is a river of red hot lava. many homes and crops have been destroyed and thousands of people have been forced to evacuate since the eruption first began last month. it's a new academic year for university students across the uk, and many of them who are returning will get to sit in a lecture hall, and attend their classes in person, for the first time since they started their studies. at the university of bristol, they've been welcoming the return to normality while working to keep everyone safe, as fiona lamdin has been finding out. a new start, a new term. and for these students into this lecture theatre it feels pretty special. it theatre it feels pretty special. it is still worth its rate in gold getting face—to—face tutoring and being able to interact with other students. for being able to interact with other students. ., , 'j~ students. for the first time in 18 months, students. for the first time in 18 months. this _ students. for the first time in 18 months, this lecture _ students. for the first time in 18 months, this lecture theatre - students. for the first time in 18 months, this lecture theatre is l months, this lecture theatre is full. students are being asked to wear masks and maths lecture is
