hughes has this report. the nhs is facing a huge backlog of non—urgent diagnostic tests and procedures. this new money, known as capital funding that pays for equipment and infrastructure, is designed to clear by the end of this parliament most of that backlog. nearly £6 billion will be used in part to fund a big expansion of diagnostic tests. that means more ct, mri and ultrasound scans. the government aims to create 100 one—stop shop community diagnostic centres across england, including more than a0 already announced. as part of the uk's funding formula for the nhs, a proportionate amount of money will also go to the health services in scotland, wales and northern ireland. the chancellor rishi sunak described the investment as game—changing. health experts have welcomed the extra money, but they point to persistent problems around staffing. "extra scanners are no good. we don't have the trained staff to operate them and interpret the results." if this is new money it's truly

welcome and the devil will be in the detail when it's announced on wednesday. it will help to deliver the proposals the government outlined last month. but what we've got to make sure is that we have the workforce in place to deliver the services. and we've also got to remember this isn't just about waiting lists. we have high demand in mental health, community services and in urgent and emergency care. those pressures on the nhs, being seen right across the uk, show no sign of easing. many will be looking closely at the details in wednesday's budget to see it further help is on the way. dominic hughes, bbc news. let's talk to our political correspondent damian grammaticus in westminster. morning. the budget is not until wednesday but we already seem to know quite a lot?— wednesday but we already seem to know quite a lot? good morning. yes, we are getting — know quite a lot? good morning. yes, we are getting a _ know quite a lot? good morning. yes, we are getting a blizzard _ know quite a lot? good morning. yes, we are getting a blizzard of— we are getting a blizzard of announcements ahead of it, which is announcements ahead of it, which is a sort _ announcements ahead of it, which is a sort of—

6:12 am

6:13 am
with a way of helping us to deal with the rising prices. on wednesday we will get some details. as you have been talking about, some of them leaked already over the weekend. one of the biggest changes that we know about already is the increase in national insurance contributions and that new health and social care levy. a lot of money raised from that. the big question is how that will be spent. let's look at some of the detail we know already. nearly £6 billion will help to try and clear that backlog of appointments and to test. they will be 100 community diagnostic centres as well to do things like ct scans, mris, that sort of thing. we also know the government wants to create 30,000 new school places for children with special educational needs. they are spending more than £2.5 billion on that. also an ounce, some cash for house building to try to free up the house—building market. and changes to get more global shipping to use uk ports. that has been in the headlines lately. you might have missed it over the weekend but the budget will also include some cash for regional
6:14 am
transport schemes. all of that is part of the so—called levelling up agenda. there are all sorts of promises and pledges so far, apprentices, vocational courses, art and culture, plus some help for veterans. but we don't yet know of course is public—sector pay. always a very emotive issue. that is one worry. low paid workers, whether they will be extra help for people. fuel costs that we have talked to so much about, rising sharply. student loans another big issue, nhs —— eight —— hs2. what we will do this morning and over the course of the week is try to answer some of your questions. i have been back to my hometown in bali to look at what people there want to hear from the chancellor. it is a particularly important town as far as that levelling up agenda is concerned. for more than 100 years it has been a label ? labour stronghold. what the people want to see from the tory
6:15 am
government and the chancellor on wednesday? i am also going to answer some questions at ten past seven. i won't, but i will have an expert with me. in aboutan in about an hourfrom in about an hour from now. in about an hourfrom now. i would have a financial expert with me to answer some of your questions. do sendin answer some of your questions. do send in thoughts and comments. lots of rumours and leaks over the weekend. we will try to break down some of those and what they could mean for us. if your kids are kicking around with nothing to do this half term, this next story might provide them with some inspiration. it's about a family of triplets, aged eight, who have been regular litter—pickers for the last two years. now they've been chosen to represent the uk at next week's global climate change summit in glasgow. our correspondent phil mackie went to meet them meet britain's youngest official environmental champions, out on their regular after—school litter pick. i'm mbetmi. i'm waimi. and i'm yimi. and we are the one—step
6:16 am
greener ambassadors! i here i've got a packet of blueberries, i think. i don't know what it is. but who just leaves it here? they've been doing this since they were six, after being inspired at primary school, where they learned about waste and recycling. we've got a plastic bottle. encouraged by their parents, they decided to go out and do something about it. i've got a bag or something. i don't know what it is, but they can'tjust put it in the recycling bin. nottingham city council gave them their litter picking kit and their work has been recognised by the government. it's not just about them being nominated as cop26 ambassadors, but it's also the inspiration behind it. i hope this will inspire more people to think that if six years old could think about their planet, and for two years they've doing what they are doing, i hope they will continue to inspire more people. but obviously i'm very,
6:17 am
very happy and proud of them. thank you. this is not a drill. we are living in the beginning of a mass extinction. esther has helped them spread the message through their own youtube channel. we are talking about a very important part about recycling. we've been keeping these boxes for 18 months. back out on the litter pick the bag is filling up. obviously these people who are gathering together in glasgow, they are going to be making really important decisions. what things would you like them to do? how can they make the world better? recycle. first, i think they should start teaching climate change in school, so when they grow up they can change the world. and we need everybody to do the three rs. i honestlyjust think everybody should try their hardest - to help this environment. time to put the cat in the bag or the bin.

6:27 am
travel and weather where you are. good morning, i'm asad ahmad. one story which has already started to affect thousands of motorists this morning — and that's the introduction of the extended ultra low emission zone. until now, it's applied only in central london — but as of today — it's become 18 times bigger and takes in all roads within the north and south circular roads. the cost of driving into it in cars 12.50 a day. it roughly applies to diesal cars made before 2015 — and petrol ones made before 2006 — but it's worth checking the response to the charge has been mixed as soon as i turn this corner, i think the ulez will start at the top of this road. my mum lives on that
6:28 am
estate at the top. it's a bit unfortunate for me. it's very expensive. a lot of people can't afford to upgrade their cars. less emissions and so on, so, yeah, i'm all for it. i understand a lot of people aren't, but it means some people might have to fork out and get another car. i understand that, but i'm all for it, to be fair. a shop just—off regent street in the heart of london — has been dedicated to david bowie and it opens its doors for the first time this today. it's on heddon street for a very good reason as it's close to where bowie posed for his famous album cover "the rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars". the shop will feature memorabilia and unseen video to mark what would have been bowie's 75th birthday injanuary. do not forget the new ulez charge if you are driving into that area, £12 50. if you are catching the cube, train cancellations are causing
6:29 am
minor delays on the metropolitan line while a signal failure has part suspended the overground between euston and kilburn high road. here's the weather with kate. good morning. it's a day of sunshine and showers. we had a cold front yesterday, which has cleared away. it has left us with fresher air and also a rather fresh to moderate south—westerly wind. it is on that south—westerly wind we will see this wind we will see the showers blowing through. they could be sharp. you might hear a rumble of thunder in one or two of them, but they are isolated and we will get some decent spells of sunshine, as well. despite the wind, temperatures getting up to 16 celsius. overnight, we will get showers blowing into the evening but it should become drier and clearer. minimum temperature dropping into single figures but not especially cold. the minimum — 7 celsius. heading into tuesday morning, we should have a bright start with sunshine, but you will notice the cloud
6:30 am
edging in from the west. that will continue, becoming a largely cloudy but dry day. still breezy on tuesday. as we head further through this week, you will notice it is mild, but slightly milder air coming through as we have through through as we head through wednesday and thursday. then the temperature will be even higher. a maximum of 17—18c. fairly dry until the end of the week. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. hello, this is breakfast with dan walker and sally nugent. coming up on the show this morning. we'll hear tributes to the actor james michael tyler, who played gunther on friends. he's died aged 59. martin hibbert was paralysed from the waist down in the manchester arena bomb. he'll be telling us about his plan to scale mount kilimanjaro next year,
6:31 am
which has gained royal approval. and they did it. after walking 300 miles in memory of their daughters — and raising more than half a million pounds for suicide prevention — mike, tim and andy will be joining us on the sofa for a well—earned sit down. as we've been hearing, the chancellor is planning to announce £6 billion of funding in his budget to ease nhs backlogs and delays. let's get an idea of exactly where one frontline doctor would like that money to be spent. our regular breakfast gp is dr nighat arif and shejoins us now from buckinghamshire great to see you. we are talking about £6 billion of extra funding and one think it will fund is community diagnosis centres. how do you react to that, how much help will it be? fin

6:33 am
needs to be corrected and then you can look at testing and what we can offer the patient. it is great. i am sure with this money, something like over £2 million will be put into the nhs and i hope they have thought about let's get more people into the nhs and more gps, because that is where we are lacking. you mentioned the shortfall — where we are lacking. you mentioned the shortfall of _ where we are lacking. you mentioned the shortfall of 8000 _ where we are lacking. you mentioned the shortfall of 8000 gps. _ where we are lacking. you mentioned the shortfall of 8000 gps. how- where we are lacking. you mentioned the shortfall of 8000 gps. how are l the shortfall of 8000 gps. how are you feeling that shortfall yourself. how does it affect yourjob? ht has how does it affect your “ob? it has not been easy. h how does it affect your “ob? it has not been easy. the _ how does it affect yourjob? it has not been easy. the past _ how does it affect yourjob? it has not been easy. the past 2-3 - how does it affect yourjob? ut u—s not been easy. the past 2—3 months, i have been really exhausted. the worst we have had it in a long time. if i talk about my surgery, the demand has increased by 20%. we have burn—out and colleagues who have tested positive for covid so they are self—isolating at the moment. the morale as a whole is not great.
6:34 am
we have patients who are angry with us and we are vilified in the media for gps not giving face—to—face but remember we were not always able to offer face—to—face before the pandemic. since then the slog has been hard. we have delivered the biggest vaccination programme and now we are delivering flu and the booster programme. i do not know what more we can do as gps. we are depleted in energy completely. i tried to remain positive when i come on here but morale is terrible and i am duty doctor today and i and dreading for the first time in a long time going in because i know it will be horrific, the demand i will have today. will be horrific, the demand i will have today-— will be horrific, the demand i will havetoda. ., ., ., have today. you are always positive when ou have today. you are always positive when you talk— have today. you are always positive when you talk so _ have today. you are always positive when you talk so it _ have today. you are always positive when you talk so it is _ have today. you are always positive when you talk so it is unusual- have today. you are always positive when you talk so it is unusual to - when you talk so it is unusual to hear you say things like this. when you say you are challenged by patients, what do they say to you?
6:35 am
we get a lot of anger. they think everything we do is covid related but we are trying to keep patients safe and we cannot have them just turn up to the surgery, we have to triage out and do it depending on need. patients feel they do not have access. and then issues around signposting. seeing a nurse at the practice is just as good as seeing their gp so patients need to be signposted to the right services and accident and emergency is not sometimes the best place, such as coming to the gp. the other thing is our phone lines are rammed. patients cannot phone into the surgery and i cannot phone into the surgery and i cannot phone into the surgery and i cannot phone out. and home visits and nursing home, care home visits, we struggle to meet the on demand
6:36 am
services because the difficulty is emergencies first come to the gp. we have to take safety precautions to make sure we are not infected by covid and we have to make sure we have winter ready cardiovascular patients, looking out for symptom so we do not miss them and also having preventative medicine delivered. there is a big push this week on the booster programme. has it gone well enough so far? that booster programme. has it gone well enough so far?— enough so far? at the moment, yes, it has done — enough so far? at the moment, yes, it has done so _ enough so far? at the moment, yes, it has done so far. _ enough so far? at the moment, yes, it has done so far. the _ enough so far? at the moment, yes, it has done so far. the booster - it has done so far. the booster programme is being run out of gp surgeries. the pressure is immense in primary care. pharmacies, allied professionals, doing the best they can. it is half term so 12—15 year olds can get the vaccine through the vaccination centres. it is worth going to the nhs website to check because they will need parental
6:37 am
consent. that is where we are trying to capture everybody to get their vaccine. it will be a difficult winter and we have to be prepared but last week on wednesday, when jenny harries put out the slides, the most important i felt as a gp was the number of people severely sick and hospitalised were not vaccinated and children fall into that so use the opportunity at half term to get your vaccines. we wish ou the term to get your vaccines. we wish you the very _ term to get your vaccines. we wish you the very best _ term to get your vaccines. we wish you the very best for— term to get your vaccines. we wish you the very best for your - term to get your vaccines. we wish you the very best for your monday. it will be busy. like you say, she is normally relentlessly positive so if she is telling you it is hard... she is so honest. i'm sure a lot of people will be agreeing with what she's saying. good morning, how are you doing? i am very well. better than ole gunnar solskjaer. liverpool were not very nice to him
6:38 am
yesterday. they were not. the worst defeat they have suffered to liverpool at old trafford. it was embarrassing for united fans. many of the fans were booing and many of them left. i spoke to a danish couple who came from denmark and they left at half time. what if there had been a comeback and won it 6—5? i never understand that. i do not understand leaving before the final will —— whistle. especially with what ole gunnar solskjaer did in 1999. one of the darkest days of his managerial career, that's how ole gunnar solskjaer described manchester united's 5—0 defeat to liverpool at old trafford. the humiliating loss left sir alex ferguson with a face like thunder and many fans wondering if solsjaer is still the right man to lead the club. lydia campbell was watching. commentator: listen to that.
6:39 am
boos at half—time and walk outs 60 minutes in. this was not the derby day that ole gunnar solskjaer wanted. it had taken less than five minutes for naby keita to silence the home crowd. and that was just a sign of things to come. some calamitous defending allowed diogojota to make it 2—0 within 15 minutes. and if they thought it could not get worse, they would have been wrong. salah netting for the 10th liverpool game in a row. and the onslaught continued as he made a fourth break before as he made it four at the break before clinching his hat—trick early in the second half. commentator: there is no stopping mohamed salah. leaving one united legend shaking his head in disbelief. to compound the united misery, pogba was sent off for a poor tackle on keita. as they slumped to one of their worst defeats at old trafford. sad, disappointed. angry, of course. but my emotions, it does not matter
6:40 am
now, apart from what do we do to improve and make sure this doesn't happen again. because human nature, it can go either way, this. of course, players can sulk, i can sulk, or we can come together. for liverpool and salah it was a day to remember, but perhaps the days are numbered for ole gunnar solskjaer. former manchester united manager david moyes is up to fourth in the premier league with west ham after beating tottenham 1—0. look out for a great goal celebration. it was from michail antonio who broke the deadlock with just over quarter of an hour left at the london stadium — his sixth premier league goal of the season. and his matrix—style celebration, probably his best yet. it's moyes' most successful start to a season since 2004 the defeat drops tottenham to sixth.
6:41 am
well, leicester beat manchester united last week and followed it up with victory at brentford. james maddison's first goal in eight months the decisive moment in a 2—1win. leicester are up to ninth in the table. in scotland, rangers returned to the top of the premiership after coming from behind to beat st mirren 2—1. the champions were stunned afterjust four minutes with this cracking strike from connor ronan to give the home side the lead. kemar roofe levelled from the penalty spot and just two minutes later, alfredo morelos scored what turned out to be rangers' winner. his 100th goal for the club. it was a tight finish but max verstappen extended his lead in the title race. the battle intensified when hamilton came within a second of max verstappen but could not get past the dutchman. his advantage in

to take second spot. she did so well, in third place but battling back to get up to second on the last sprint. i am not allowed to chat to you, i have to go to the weather. was that a united fan? stop chatting up everyone. quick, help, good morning. ithink you ever said that was absolutely right. not a particularly cold start. as you can see... the forecast today is one of sunshine and showers, but a noticeable breeze. a weather front is moving across, enhancing showers. it will be breezy. later a weatherfront comes into the west bringing rain but that is much later in the day. we start with showers here across
6:44 am
north and west and a few getting into the south, but a lot of dry weather. some starting on a sunny note. through this morning, we have prolific showers in the north and west and into northern ireland and across northern england. but in between some sunshine. not a cold start. wales and the south—west, showers, some getting into the midlands. skirting southern counties of england, as well. through the rest of the day we will continue with showers. some of them heavy and potentially thundery across north—west scotland in south—east england but a lot of us will stay dry. yesterday, temperatures above 16. today, it will be cooler in the northern two thirds of the country but in the south, likely to see 16. the average this time of year is 10-14. this the average this time of year is 10—1li. this evening and overnight
6:45 am
starting with clear skies. showers fade. the weather front comes in and will introduce more cloud and rain. and breezy conditions. for most, not a particularly cold night. tomorrow we have rain moving steadily eastwards. some of this will be heavy. cloud around. the south—east will have the driest conditions and brightest. temperatures will be higher than today. 11—17. and you can see the next band of rain. a mild night tuesday into wednesday. the rain sinking south. it is a waving front, and the position of the rain could alter slightly. it will be wet in parts of scotland, northern england, north west wales. also at times northern ireland. the driest conditions and highest temperatures in the south—east. and
6:46 am
another breezy day in prospect. on thursday, we have the waving front. parts of northern england and wales, south west. showers in north—west scotland and northern ireland at times but between that some sunshine. but the south—east will again hang on to the brightest weather and also the highest temperatures. on friday and into the weekend, rain will get to eastern areas and day by day, gradually, the temperature will start to slip. in the following week. but it will still be unsettled. i enjoy the waving front. i learn so much every morning from you. it was waving back. ordering your groceries online is supposed to take the stress out of shopping — but that was not the case for tesco customers over the weekend. an attempted hack brought the website and the app down, meaning it was not possible to book deliveries or amend existing orders.
6:47 am
it's now up and running again. joining us now is the consumer journalist and presenter of 5 live's wake up to money, felicity hannah. anybody who does online shopping will know this was a big hit for quite a few people. aha, will know this was a big hit for quite a few people.— will know this was a big hit for quite a few people. a big hit across the weekend. _ quite a few people. a big hit across the weekend, which _ quite a few people. a big hit across the weekend, which is _ quite a few people. a big hit across the weekend, which is peak - quite a few people. a big hit across l the weekend, which is peak shopping period with people planning meals ahead and people adding to their basket over the weekend. it caught potentially thousands of customers out. what will have annoyed people is a lot of people tend to book the slot in advance so you do not necessarily finish your shop in advance but you might book it and fill it with £40 worth of stuff so you have the slot saved and then change it closest to the date and then something like this happens and you cannot change it and potentially your delivery driver showing up with stuff you did not want. in

that hackers can take advantage of. if you get a phone call in the next days and someone is talking about this incident and saying your data has been compromised, take five minutes, think about whether that itself might be a scammer, even without your data being compromised they might use that as a hook. that is helful they might use that as a hook. that is helpful to — they might use that as a hook. that is helpful to know. _ they might use that as a hook. that is helpfulto know. i _ they might use that as a hook. that is helpful to know. i was going to ask you about that but you answered it anyway. really appreciate your time. there was some sad news overnight for fans of the sitcom friends. james michael tyler — who played the coffee shop manager gunther — has died, aged 59. james turned guntherfrom a bit part into the show�*s best known character outside of the main group. let's see him in action. gunther, six glasses. six? you want me tojoin you? oh, i thoughtjoey was here. five is good. have you seen chandler?
6:51 am
i thought you were chandler. i finished it. i did it all by myself. and there's nobody to hug. so what is this, some kind of snake or something? i've got myself a date tomorrow night. - see, didn't i tell you? get out. and when i'm in a cafe, having coffee, or i seel a man with hair brighter- than the sun...|'ll think of you. brilliant moments there. piya sinha—roy is an entertainment journalist based in los angeles. good morning. really sad circumstances with the news that reached us overnight, but gunther
6:52 am
was thought of as the seventh friend. not in the main group but he went from being just the coffee guide to something more important? absolutely. when you have a sitcom with six leads, it is difficult for anyone to come in and steal the spotlight but he did that, going from being a background actor to becoming part of the sitcom. you cannot think about the coffee shop without thinking of gunther. what without thinking of gunther. what has the reaction _ without thinking of gunther. what has the reaction been _ without thinking of gunther. what has the reaction been like in los angeles today?— angeles today? there is a lot of surrise, angeles today? there is a lot of surprise, shock, _ angeles today? there is a lot of surprise, shock, sadness. - angeles today? there is a lot of surprise, shock, sadness. he i angeles today? there is a lot of i surprise, shock, sadness. he was only 59. we just got to see the reunion a few months ago and he was part of that. i do not think fans were ready for that, or expected it, even though he has talked about his cancer diagnosis. it is a shark and sad and people are remembering his best moments and fans of the show will really miss him. you mentioned

nice he was part of the reunion. find nice he was part of the reunion. and how was he — nice he was part of the reunion. and how was he able _ nice he was part of the reunion. and how was he able to transform himself if you like from someone who had a small role in a massive show from the coffee guy, to having an actual name in the show and having a part to play and the lovely relationship he had withjennifer aniston. it really speaks to his talent he was able to shine through in that show. he was not meant to have any dialogue at the beginning and yet without dialogue he was stealing scenes from some of the funniest people we have seen on tv. this is a popular sitcom and he was able to break through that background and come into the foreground. the lines he later delivered, they are so memorable. it speaks to his talent, his physical comedy, his delivery, all of that. he was able to do that for himself.

someone given a tiny part and they are so good... made it his own. time now to get the news where you are. good morning, i'm asad ahmad. one story which has already started to affect thousands of motorists this morning — and that's the introduction of the extended ultra low emission zone. until now, it's applied only in central london — but as of today — it's become 18 times bigger and takes in all roads within the north and south circular roads. the cost of driving into it in cars 12.50 a day. it roughly applies to diesal cars made before 2015 — and petrol ones made before 2006 — but it's worth checking on the transport for london websitejust in case. the response to the charge has been mixed as soon as i turn this corner, i think the ulez will start
6:57 am
at the top of this road. my mum lives on that estate at the top. it's a bit unfortunate for me. it's very expensive. a lot of people can't afford to upgrade their cars. less emissions and so on, so, yeah, i'm all for it. i understand a lot of people aren't, but it means some people might have to fork out and get another car. i understand that, but i'm all for it, to be fair. a shop just—off regent street in the heart of london — has been dedicated to david bowie and it opens its doors for the first time this today. it's on heddon street for a very good reason as it's close to where bowie posed for his famous album cover "the rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars". the shop will feature memorabilia and unseen video to mark what would have been bowie's 75th birthday injanuary. do not forget the new ulez charge if you are driving into that area, £12 50. if you are catching the tube, train cancellations are causing minor delays on the metropolitan

line while a signal failure has part suspended the overground between euston and kilburn high road. here's the weather with kate. good morning. it's a day of sunshine and showers. we had a cold front yesterday, which has cleared away. it has left us with fresher air and also a rather fresh to moderate south—westerly wind. it is on that south—westerly wind we will see the showers blowing through. they could be sharp. you might hear a rumble of thunder in one or two of them, but they are isolated and we will get some decent spells of sunshine, as well. despite the wind, temperatures getting up to 16 celsius. overnight, we will get showers blowing into the evening but it should become drier and clearer. minimum temperature dropping into single figures but not especially cold. the minimum — 7 celsius. heading into tuesday morning, we should have a bright start with sunshine, but you will notice the cloud edging in from the west. that will continue, becoming a largely cloudy but dry day. still breezy on tuesday.
6:59 am
as we head further through this week, you will notice it is mild, but slightly milder air coming through as we head through wednesday and thursday. then the temperature will be even higher. a maximum of 17—18c. fairly dry until the end of the week. much more on the ultra low emission zone and vanessa feltz.

7:02 am
most of that backlog. nearly £6 billion will be used in part to fund a big expansion of diagnostic tests. that means more ct, mri and ultrasound scans. the government aims to create 100 one—stop shop community diagnostic centres across england, including more than 40 already announced. as part of the uk's funding formula for the nhs, a proportionate amount of money will also go to the health services in scotland, wales and northern ireland. the chancellor rishi sunak described the investment as game—changing. health experts have welcomed the extra money, but they point to persistent problems around staffing. "extra scanners are no good if you don't have the trained staff to operate them and interpret the results." if this is new money it's truly welcome and the devil will be in the detail when it's announced on wednesday. it will help to deliver
7:03 am
the proposals the government outlined last month. but what we've got to make sure is that we have the workforce in place to deliver the services. and we've also got to remember this isn't just about waiting lists. we have high demand in mental health, community services and in urgent and emergency care. those pressures on the nhs, being seen right across the uk, show no sign of easing. many will be looking closely at the details in wednesday's budget to see it further help is on the way. dominic hughes, bbc news. let's talk to our political correspondent, damian grammaticus. good morning. lots of spending pledges, which you would expect in a budget week, and there's lots to talk about in the build—up to wednesday? talk about in the build-up to wednesday?— talk about in the build-up to wednesday? talk about in the build-up to wednesda ? ., , , wednesday? yeah, there is. this money for _ wednesday? yeah, there is. this money for the — wednesday? yeah, there is. this money for the health _ wednesday? yeah, there is. this money for the health service - wednesday? yeah, there is. this money for the health service is i wednesday? yeah, there is. this. money for the health service is just money for the health service isjust one of— money for the health service isjust one of four— money for the health service isjust one of four or five announcements today _ one of four or five announcements today we — one of four or five announcements today. we had more yesterday and the day before _

7:07 am
essex police have described this as a tragic incident involving a large—scale response. as part of the investigation eight people have been arrested on suspicion of murder in the early hours of this morning here in brentwood. others with information are being urged to come forward. this is being described as a fast paced investigation. police believe those involved may be known to each other. although we are keeping very much an open mind and we will explore all the possible lines of enquiry, we do think they knew each other, so we think they knew each other, so we think this was an isolated incident. a book of condolence has been opened at a local church. the town's mp is reassuring residence that brentwood is saved. we are extremely lucky that this sort of thing doesn't happen very often here. but to lose two young boys in one evening has really left everyone very upset indeed. i understand that a lot of people will be shocked. but i hope they will be reassured
7:08 am
by the fact the police have said there will be an enhanced police presence in the town in the coming days. forensic postmortems will now be carried out to establish how the teenage boys were killed and how two lives were so tragically cut short. phone networks have agreed to automatically block internet calls from abroad that pretend to be from uk numbers, according to the telecoms regulator, ofcom. the move is intended to stop millions of scam calls made by gangs based overseas. the unprecedented move comes after phone companies were criticised by the national crime agency for failing to tackle a huge rise in scam calls and texts over the past year. tesco's website and app is working again after hackers caused problems with the supermarkets online service. shoppers were unable to book deliveries, or amend existing orders over the weekend. tesco has apologised and said its teams worked around the clock to restore the service.

7:30 am
as soon as i turn this corner, i think the ulez will start at the top of this road. my mum lives on that estate at the top. it's a bit unfortunate for me. it's very expensive. a lot of people can't afford to upgrade their cars. less emissions and so on, so, yeah, i'm all for it. i understand a lot of people aren't, but it means some people might have to fork out and get another car. i understand that, but i'm all for it, to be fair. a shop just off regent street in the heart of london has been dedicated to david bowie and it opens its doors for the first time this today. it's on heddon street for a very good reason as it's close to where bowie posed for his famous album cover the rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars. the shop will feature memorabilia and unseen video to mark what would have been bowie's 75th birthday in january. do not forget the new ulez charge if you are driving
7:31 am
into that area, £12.50. that is if your car does not comply. cancellations causing severe delays on the metropolitan line. a signal failure has part suspended the overground between euston and kilburn high road and the metropolitan line has cleared up in the past minutes. now the weather forecast. it's a day of sunshine and showers. we had a cold front yesterday, which has cleared away. it has left us with fresher air and also a rather fresh to moderate south—westerly wind. it is on that south—westerly wind we will see the showers blowing through. they could be sharp. you might hear a rumble of thunder in one or two of them, but they are isolated and we will get some decent spells of sunshine, as well. despite the wind, temperatures getting up to 16 celsius. overnight, we will get showers blowing into the evening but it should become drier and clearer. minimum temperature dropping into single figures but not especially cold. the minimum — 7 celsius.
7:32 am
heading into tuesday morning, we should have a bright start with sunshine, but you will notice the cloud edging in from the west. that will continue, becoming a largely cloudy but dry day. still breezy on tuesday. as we head further through this week, you will notice it is mild, but slightly milder air coming through as we head through wednesday and thursday. then the temperature will be even higher. a maximum of 17—18c. fairly dry until the end of the week. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in an hour. hello, this is breakfast with dan walker and sally nugent. we can return to our top story. the nhs in england is to receive almost £6 billion in the budget let's return to our top story now
7:33 am
and the chancellor rishi sunak will pledge £6 in wednesday's budget to help the nhs to recover from some of the damage caused by the pandemic. the health secretary sajid javid joins us now from westminster. some clarity on that money. we heard about the £12 billion a year that will come from a national insurance increase next year. is this £6 billion entirely new money and where is it coming from? it is billion entirely new money and where is it coming from?— is it coming from? it is new money. i am full of — is it coming from? it is new money. i am full of praise _ is it coming from? it is new money. i am full of praise for _ is it coming from? it is new money. i am full of praise for everyone i is it coming from? it is new money. i am full of praise for everyone who j i am full of praise for everyone who works in the nhs. this money is about doing even more to support them in tackling waiting lists and ensuring more patients get seen more quickly. this 6 billion we are announcing on wednesday is what we refer to as capital investment but that means investment in physical things that will make a difference in tackling the waiting lists, things like the community diagnostic centres, ct scanners, investment in equipment, beds, buildings, humps,
7:34 am
investment in it so it can free up more time off staffed so they can spend more time with patients. the mone is spend more time with patients. the money is coming from where? the | money is coming from where? the chancellor will _ money is coming from where? tue: chancellor will set out money is coming from where? tu9 chancellor will set out on money is coming from where? tu9: chancellor will set out on wednesday where the money is coming from. today, i am where the money is coming from. today, lam happy where the money is coming from. today, i am happy to talk about what we will do with that funding. irate we will do with that funding. we will hopefully get clarity on that later in the week. i want to talk about nhs staff. we speak to a doctor most monday mornings. this is what a gp said to us earlier. the workforce are exhausted and depleted. she said every colleague she speaks to feels knackered and she speaks to feels knackered and she is not sure how much can be squeezed out of the resolve, the waiting list, by having diagnostic centres. i am sure you speak to nhs staff regularly. the number of extra staff regularly. the number of extra staff required, the 100,000
7:35 am

7:36 am
have joined the past year more than 3000 doctors havejoined the nhs. 9000 more nurses, and that investment will continue on top of the investment announced today. it means investing in the equipment we need that can help free up time of nhs workers. i mentioned extra it investment, putting more than £2 billion into that and this is something clinicians have asked for, which will free up time. diagnostic machines, some of them are quicker and require fewer people working on them to get out more tests. that will help. we will continue to work with friends in the nhs and do everything we can. the with friends in the nhs and do everything we can.— with friends in the nhs and do everything we can. with friends in the nhs and do eve him we can. ,:, . _ everything we can. the point made by man nhs everything we can. the point made by many nhs staff— everything we can. the point made by many nhs staff is _ everything we can. the point made by many nhs staff is the _ everything we can. the point made by many nhs staff is the money - everything we can. the point made by many nhs staff is the money is i many nhs staff is the money is welcome but there are not the people to do the job. you talked about numbers but according to the health foundation there are 10,000 doctors needed and 40,000 vacancies for

they would understand it is not only not good for them but the people they are caring for. it is important at that dialogue with them and if they haven't taken it, they are hesitant to have people and work with them and convince them, ultimately i think the nhs will be safer if the people who worked in it were open to taking the vaccinations necessary to protect them and patients. necessary to protect them and atients. :, , patients. you said it is something ou would patients. you said it is something you would move _ patients. you said it is something you would move towards. - patients. you said it is something you would move towards. how. patients. you said it is something| you would move towards. how big patients. you said it is something i you would move towards. how big a decision do you consider that to be? to say to those in the nhs you cannot work here unless you have a double vaccination? it is cannot work here unless you have a double vaccination?— double vaccination? it is a huge issue as it _ double vaccination? it is a huge issue as it was _ double vaccination? it is a huge issue as it was with _ double vaccination? it is a huge issue as it was with the - double vaccination? it is a huge issue as it was with the care - double vaccination? it is a huge i issue as it was with the care sector and what we have seen with the care sector where we have implemented this policy with the cut—off date november the 11th, so all care workers have to be double vaccinated by that date. what we saw was from
7:40 am
the moment we announced this, the number of people taking up vaccinations has surged. will there be care people who do not take it? there will be and that is a decision for them. there will be and that is a decision forthem. but there will be and that is a decision for them. but it will mean, taking the care sector as an example, the people they look after will be safer as a result of this policy. what as a result of this policy. what about a timeframe _ as a result of this policy. what about a timeframe if— as a result of this policy. what about a timeframe if it - as a result of this policy. what about a timeframe if it was - as a result of this policy. what about a timeframe if it was to | as a result of this policy. what about a timeframe if it was to come in? i about a timeframe if it was to come in? ., ., “ about a timeframe if it was to come in? ., ., 4' , in? i do not think it will be months. — in? i do not think it will be months, we _ in? i do not think it will be months, we have - in? i do not think it will be months, we have to - in? i do not think it will be months, we have to act i in? i do not think it will be - months, we have to act sooner than that. i could not tell you exactly because we onlyjust closed consultation and we need to work on the final decision. lots consultation and we need to work on the final decision.— the final decision. lots of viewers are talking _ the final decision. lots of viewers are talking about _ the final decision. lots of viewers are talking about where _ the final decision. lots of viewers are talking about where we - the final decision. lots of viewers are talking about where we are i the final decision. lots of viewers are talking about where we are in i are talking about where we are in terms of current infections and the possibility of plan b. i would be interested in your views. many would have seen over the weekend, just under 40,000 infections on sunday
7:41 am
and last week you warned of potentially 100,000 infections a day. at what point do you think plan b measures might be needed in terms of numbers of infections? figs b measures might be needed in terms of numbers of infections? 35” b measures might be needed in terms of numbers of infections?— of numbers of infections? as i said last week and _ of numbers of infections? as i said last week and that _ of numbers of infections? as i said last week and that view _ of numbers of infections? as i said last week and that view has - of numbers of infections? as i said last week and that view has not. last week and that view has not changed, we are not at that point, and whether we get there, we will see. the best we can do to prevent us moving to plan b, taking further measures, is to get out and get vaccines, especially 5 million people who have not even had a single dose of the vaccine yet, and also to be cautious. the pandemic is still there, the virus is in our communities, and to be cautious and take sensible action to try to prevent the spread of the virus. fin prevent the spread of the virus. on that issue of taking sensible precautions, on the issue of face masks, if it is something that can
7:42 am
simply be done, to say you need to wear face masks, simply be done, to say you need to wearface masks, because the evidence suggests when it is not mandatory, far fewer wear it. evidence suggests when it is not mandatory, farfewer wear it. if evidence suggests when it is not mandatory, far fewer wear it. if you are trying to be cautious and take care, why is that not something the government could simply say we think you should do this in this situation? surely it is a step simple to impose? we situation? surely it is a step simple to impose? situation? surely it is a step simle to imose? ~ ., ., . , ., simple to impose? we made a decision in jul when simple to impose? we made a decision in july when we — simple to impose? we made a decision in july when we took _ simple to impose? we made a decision in july when we took the _ simple to impose? we made a decision in july when we took the so _ simple to impose? we made a decision in july when we took the so called - injuly when we took the so called step four decision to move from man nation when it came to certain measures including facemasks, to move from mandatory measures such as facemasks. i think that has been the right decision. we said in the winter plan we would keep measures under review and if it was necessary to take further action we would do so. something we keep under review at all times. when we all think about what we can do, there are things we can do where it is
7:43 am
appropriate to wear a face mask, hand hygiene, keep taking tests, especially if you are meeting an elderly friend or relative that is more vulnerable. also get vaccinated. collectively, we all hopefully now know what we can do and getting out there and getting the booster vaccination is one of the booster vaccination is one of the best things you can do if eligible. the best things you can do if eliible. ., , the best things you can do if eliuible. ., , ., eligible. facemasks is an interesting _ eligible. facemasks is an interesting area - eligible. facemasks is an interesting area of- eligible. facemasks is an - interesting area of discussion. you have said you do not have a problem with doing things such as making it mandatory to be double vaccinated to work in the nhs. evidence suggests that facemasks do make a difference to transmission rates. i am interested why you hesitate on that when it could make a difference. we are not when it could make a difference. , are not hesitating. we have been clear on this. the step four decision was to move to guidance and that out and set out the reasons for
7:44 am
that. also recently when we set out the winter plan, notjust with respect to covid but more generally with more viruses around in winter, we set out what actions we could take if necessary. at this point, in terms of action set out under plan b, we do not feel we have reached that point. that said, we have seen case numbers that rose sharply over the past days. now some of them are heading down. they will go up and down. it shows the pandemic is still there and there is still a lot of virus around. we are in a better place today than at any time during this pandemic. if we want to continue heading down the road towards back to normal, let's play our bit and the best thing we can do is get vaccinated. i our bit and the best thing we can do is get vaccinated.— is get vaccinated. i would like to ut a is get vaccinated. i would like to put a quote _ is get vaccinated. i would like to put a quote to — is get vaccinated. i would like to put a quote to you _ is get vaccinated. i would like to put a quote to you from - is get vaccinated. i would like to put a quote to you from a - is get vaccinated. i would like to i put a quote to you from a professor from nervtag who said i am fearful

former manchester united manager david moyes is up to fourth in the premier league with west ham after beating tottenham 1—0. look out for a great goal celebration. it was after michail antonio broke the deadlock with just over quarter of an hour left at the london stadium — his sixth premier league goal of the season. and his celebration in the style of the hollywood film the matrix probably his best yet. it's moyes' most successful start to a season since 200a. the defeat drops tottenham to sixth. well, leicester beat manchester united last week and followed it up with victory at brentford. james maddison's first goal in eight months the decisive moment in a 2—1win. leicester are up to ninth in the table. in scotland, rangers returned to the top of the premiership after coming from behind to beat st mirren 2—1. the champions were stunned afterjust four minutes with this cracking strike from connor ronan to give the home side the lead. kemar roofe levelled
7:52 am
from the penalty spot and just two minutes later, alfredo morelos scored what turned out to be rangers' winner. his 100th goal for the club. it was a tight finish but max verstappen held off lewis hamilton on the last lap to win the united states grand prix and extend his lead in the formula one title race. the battle intensified as hamilton came to within a second of verstappen, but he just couldn't get past the dutchman on the final lap. the red bull driver increases his advantage in the championship to 12 points with five races remaining. hamiltonjust could hamilton just could not get past max verstappen. it is very tense. thank you. world leaders will discuss the climate crisis at a conference in glasgow next week — but what about the people who aren't invited? film—maker and youtuberjack harries wants to make their voices heard, too — so he's been gathering stories
7:53 am
from the frontline of climate change for a new documentary. take a look. around the world, the climate is in crisis. my world is melting. it's a scary thing to think about. this terrifies me. and the people who are paying most are the poorest people in the world. what a gross injustice. our survival is at stake. how are we going toi build a better world? i should use my tools to make some change. so i am travelling the length of the uk to get to the next climate change conference, cop26, where world leaders will discuss the future of life on earth. along the way, i will share stories of people who are on the front lines of climate change. jack. he has just jack. he hasjustjoined us now. he literallyjust jack. he hasjustjoined us now. he literally just sat jack. he hasjustjoined us now. he literallyjust sat down. that was a good sprint, well done. good morning. my watch is talking

7:55 am
are under threat by rising sea levels. they are incredible like a tropical island with sandy beaches. i met an amazing person in the scilly isles raising awareness, she is known as the greta thornburg of the scilly isles. i spoke to someone in the maldives campaigning for change there. the point of the show is to highlight everyone will be impacted by climate change but not equally and it disproportionately affects people in the global south. he spoke to david attenborough. shall we look at that. sir he spoke to david attenborough. shall we look at that.— shall we look at that. sir david attenborough _ shall we look at that. sir david attenborough is _ shall we look at that. sir david attenborough is the _ shall we look at that. sir david attenborough is the reason i. shall we look at that. sir david i attenborough is the reason i wanted to get in this in the first place. he is the hero i grew up watching and he is an icon. i thought there was no better person to kick off the series. it is a big day. at the end of this year, world leaders will gather at cop26, do you think the

7:57 am
feels like he is passing this on to the next generation and all around the next generation and all around the world young people are rising to the world young people are rising to the challenge and it gives me hope. we talk about climate change but it can feel abstract to some. what your programme does is tell personal stories. was that the plan, to make us think about how it impacts on individuals and communities and therefore you think about your own life? ., therefore you think about your own life? . ., , , therefore you think about your own life? . .,, ., , ,., , ., life? that was absolutely the idea. learnin: life? that was absolutely the idea. learning about _ life? that was absolutely the idea. learning about climate _ life? that was absolutely the idea. learning about climate change, i l learning about climate change, i found it overwhelming. it is hard to understand how it impacts us and our lives. it is notjust an environment issue but about human rights. we hear a lot about saving the planet but what is at stake is human wellbeing and the wellbeing of all the life we share the planet with and so climate breakdown affects everyone and the main point is that
7:58 am
it is not equal. one person said we all face the same storm but not everyone is in the same boat. if you take the uk, because where we are located, the effects of climate breakdown will not be as severe here than in countries closer to the equator. because we are a wealthy country and a history of colonisation to some degree, we have resources to adapt. those in the global south will not and they are on the front line. as an industrialised nation, we have a responsibility not only to act on climate change but support countries on the front lines with this issue and in this crucial year, cop26 is happening next week, it is time to step up and take responsibility. thank you very much for coming in. you will continue filming in glasgow with two more episodes to make. seat at the table is out on youtube from today.

it will also be used for new equipment and to overhaul it systems. our health correspondent dominic hughes has this report. the nhs is facing a huge backlog of non—urgent diagnostic tests and procedures. this new money, known as capital funding, that pays for equipment and infrastructure, is designed to clear by the end of this parliament most of that backlog. nearly £6 billion will be used in part to fund a big expansion of diagnostic tests. that means more ct, mri and ultrasound scans. the government aims to create 100 one—stop shop community diagnostic centres across england, including more than 40 already announced. what that really means is investment in physical things that will make a difference in tackling the waiting list. so things like the community diagnostic centres, buying ct scanners for more checkups and
8:03 am
tests, investment in equipment and beds,in tests, investment in equipment and beds, in buildings, in hubs and investment in it, so we can free up more time of dedicated nhs staff to spend more time with patients. as part of the uk's funding formula for the nhs, a proportionate amount of money will also go to the health services in scotland, wales and northern ireland. health experts have welcomed the extra money, but they point to persistent problems around staffing. "extra scanners are no good if you don't have the trained staff to operate them and interpret the results." if this is new money it's truly welcome and the devil will be in the detail when it's announced on wednesday. it will help to deliver the proposals the government outlined last month. but what we've got to make sure is that we have the workforce in place to deliver the services. and we've also got to remember this isn't just about waiting lists. we have high demand in mental health, community services and in urgent and emergency care. those pressures on the nhs,

8:28 am
the cost of driving into it is £12.50 a day. and it roughly applies to diesal cars made before 2015 and petrol ones made before 2006 — but it's worth checking as there are exceptions. the response to the charge has been mixed. as soon as i turn this corner, i think the ulez will start at the top of this road. my mum lives on that estate at the top. it's a bit unfortunate for me. it's very expensive. a lot of people can't afford to upgrade their cars. less emissions and so on, so, yeah, i'm all for it. i understand a lot of people aren't, but it means some people might have to fork out and get another car. i understand that, but i'm all for it, to be fair. a shop just off regent street in the heart of london has been dedicated to david bowie, and it opens its doors for the first time this today. the first time today. it's on heddon street for a very good reason as it's close to where bowie posed for his famous album cover the rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars. the shop will feature memorabilia and unseen video to mark what would have been bowie's 75th
8:29 am
birthday in january. do not forget the new ulez charge if you are driving into the area. will have to pay £12 50 if your car does not comply. there are issues on the metropolitan line and central line and overground is part suspended. good morning. it's a day of sunshine and showers. we had a cold front yesterday, which has cleared away. it has left us with fresher air and also a rather fresh to moderate south—westerly wind. it is on that south—westerly wind we will see the showers blowing through. they could be sharp. you might hear a rumble of thunder in one or two of them, but they are isolated and we will get some decent spells of sunshine, as well.
8:30 am
despite the wind, temperatures getting up to 16 celsius. overnight, we will get showers blowing into the evening but it should become drier and clearer. minimum temperature dropping into single figures but not especially cold. the minimum — 7 celsius. heading into tuesday morning, we should have a bright start with sunshine, but you will notice the cloud edging in from the west. that will continue, becoming a largely cloudy but dry day. still breezy on tuesday. as we head further through this week, you will notice it is mild, but slightly milder air coming through as we head through wednesday and thursday. then the temperature will be even higher. a maximum of 17—18c. fairly dry until the end of the week. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom just after 9. hello, this is breakfast

manchester united did not enjoy their wander down liverpool street yesterday. it almost works. it was at old trafford. liverpool fans were ecstatic. you are there. i was in the away stand. jumping up and down. liverpool performance was clinical and ruthless. some manchester united fans left. more than quite a few. liverpool fans will remember it for years. one of their best away days in a while. but one of the worst for manchester united. some fans left after the second goal after one of their worst performances this season. united are in crisis, losing 5-0 season. united are in crisis, losing 5—0 and down to seventh in the league. naby keita and diogojota had made it 2—nil to liverpool. before mohammed salah added two more before the break. there were boos at half time as the home side went in 4—0 down.
8:49 am
in the second half, salah added the fifth for his hat—trick before substitute paul pogba was sent off, in united's worst ever defeat to liverpool at old trafford. and for some manchester united fans, they had seen enough — many leaving before the final whistle. ole gunnar solskjaer said he went through a raft of emotions. sad, disappointed — angry, of course. my emotions, it does not matter here now, apart from what do we do to improve and make sure this does not happen again. we were incredibly clinical. we played good stuff high up the pitch and put them under pressure with our high press. it was phenomenal, to be honest. as the opponent, you cannot really gain confidence or momentum.
