that thinking seems to be that now. that thinking seems to be that if you have vaccine passport requirements for, say, large sports or music venues that already are sort of well ventilated and have preventative measures in place, it will drive people instead into the pubs, where you might not require dollars passports and where there is more laxity over such measures and therefore a higher potential rate of infection —— infection. i'm not sure about the logic of that and where that lies. i know that countries that lies. i know that countries that do have vaccine passports, we look at israel, where they have implemented vaccine passports quite thoroughly, they will have pcr tests as an alternative to him as a vaccine passport or a pcr test, and it's worth pointing out that they are much more affordable and in some cases free to have those tests. so, i'm not sure that the government has really been that thorough in its

leadership in the room from the hosting nation ahead of this summit, and borisjohnson with these comments just keep sort of displaying that he is not really up to the job, which displaying that he is not really up to thejob, which is displaying that he is not really up to the job, which is worrying for us, but also worrying for the world. katy, very quickly, lots of his speech is around us in the lead—up to the top. i speech is around us in the lead-up to the too-— to the top. i think the prime or sees it as _ to the top. i think the prime or sees it as a — to the top. i think the prime or sees it as a chance _ to the top. i think the prime or sees it as a chance to - to the top. i think the prime or sees it as a chance to not - to the top. i think the prime or sees it as a chance to not to i to the top. i think the prime or. sees it as a chance to not to show the uk _ sees it as a chance to not to show the uk as— sees it as a chance to not to show the uk as global influencers, but also has — the uk as global influencers, but also has a — the uk as global influencers, but also has a domestic audience. i'm not sure _ also has a domestic audience. i'm not sure today's comments particularly help with that, most people _ particularly help with that, most people see recycling as one helpful step. _ people see recycling as one helpful step. it's _ people see recycling as one helpful step, it's not unhelpful, and therefore, he was a little off the mark _ therefore, he was a little off the mark with — therefore, he was a little off the mark with that vision.— therefore, he was a little off the mark with that vision. rachel, you end the papers — mark with that vision. rachel, you end the papers around _ mark with that vision. rachel, you end the papers around for- mark with that vision. rachel, you end the papers around for that - end the papers around for that throwaway comment, i loved that. we will catch up at both the a little bit later. thanks forjoining us.

that is it for the papers. back again —— back again at 11:30 pm. that's all for now. good evening. scotland's cricketers have been brought swiftly back down to earth at the t20 world cup in sharjah. the scots qualified for the super 12 stage with three wins out of three in the first group stage, but were hammered by afghanistan today losing by 130 runs. our sports correspondent joe wilson reports. there has never been a more significant occasion for scotland's cricketers. it has demanded dedication, inspiration, qualification. they have now earned games against some of the worlds highest ranked nations and that includes afghanistan. afghanistan's
10:52 pm
includes afghanistan. afg hanistan's men's includes afghanistan. afghanistan's men's team, at least, cricket has meant global connexion and rapid rise. the future is seriously uncertain. their batteries enjoyed themselves here. but there is mark watts to spoil the fun. he's gone, scotland are never down for long. neither, however, was the ball. 11 sixes in afghanistan's 190, neither, however, was the ball. 11 sixes in afghanistan's190, scott follow that. sadly, they couldn't. tough enough facing afghanistan's spin bowlers, but then the big gatekeeper holds a catch like this. the match became afghanistan's occasion. 60 all out. 0ut. well, thatis occasion. 60 all out. 0ut. well, that is world cup cricket. joe wilson, bbc news. so a bruising defeat for the scots but their coach is convinced that his side will come back stronger we've got some world—class players on our team, we've got some world—class players on ourteam, but we've got some world—class players on our team, but given my opportunity, given more time under the pressure like we had this evening, i have no doubt that the performance will keep being more
10:53 pm
consistent, and i don't think tonight because miklos defines us as a team or defines them as individuals. i think it's a game of cricket wrappings turn pretty quickly. you know, character is defined by how much you come back from something like this. staying with cricket — ben stokes says he's �*buzzing' after being added to the england squad for thsi winter's ashes series. the all—rounder�*s been given the all clear after a second operation on a fractured finger and taking time out to prioritise his mental health. speaking to naga munchetty on bbc radio five live — former england opener michael carberry says stokes can expect the usual hostile reception from the aussies when he arrives there he will be copping it, not only in the crowd, it would become nowadays, as people tend to do, they sort of hanging out on media and think they are bit clever, have a pop it in there as well, so i think for me, my only advice to him would be as much as he can, just try and channel his energies when he is on the pitch,
10:54 pm
you know, he doesn't need me to tell them that off the pitch. i think it's about the england squad just trying to get around ten, trying, i suppose, help him avoid certain situations and just have a good to her as he can and obviously someone they can has a great tour, you know commanding england's chances are very, very good. british number one cameron norrie will lead the gb bid to win the davis cup finals after being named in an initial four—man squad. norrie — who won the indian wells masters just a couple of weeks ago — will bejoined by dan evans and doubles specialists joe salisbury and neal skupski. andy murray has ruled himself out of the event so a fifth player will be confirmed in due course. speaking of andy murray, he's just achieved his best result this year with a fine performance to beat wimbledon semi finalist, hubert hurkacz at the vienna open in austria. he had to do it the hard way, in three sets coming
10:55 pm
through 6—1i—6—7 6—3— it's the first time murray's beaten a top 10 player in over a year. but the british number 2 dan evans is already out of the competition — he lost in straight sets to the spanish teenage carlos alcaraz, who'll play murray in the next round. staying with tennis, unvaccinated players are set to be allowed to compete at the australian open but will face two weeks of quarantine and regular testing, according to a letter given to wta players. australian ministers had said players withoutjabs would not be able to enter the country for the tournament. but the wta players�* council says it's been told all competitors will be able to go to melbourne injanuary. a number of players — including 35% of those on the men's atp tour — remain unvaccinated. novak djokovic, the men's world number one and nine—time australian open champion, said last week he didn't want to reveal his vaccination status. 0le gunnar solskjaer called it the darkest day of his managerial career and pundits seem divided on whether he'll be at the helm at manchester united much longer
10:56 pm
following yesterday's humiliating 5—nil home to liverpool is a result that's piled more pressure on the united boss who's lost three of his last four league games. despite questions around his future, solskjaer says he's come too far to give up now. we've been getting the thoughts of united fans. i think he must go, only thing i can say. i think he just needs that chance, i really do. he's got to go. he's a nice guy. probabty— he's got to go. he's a nice guy. probably not the right man for that oh. probably not the right man for that job he— probably not the right man for that “ob. , ., , , ., ., probably not the right man for that “ob. , ., , , ., job. he needs to put his foot down on his guys — job. he needs to put his foot down on his guys and — job. he needs to put his foot down on his guys and tell _ job. he needs to put his foot down on his guys and tell them - job. he needs to put his foot down on his guys and tell them what - job. he needs to put his foot down on his guys and tell them what to l on his guys and tell them what to do. on his guys and tell them what to do i_ on his guys and tell them what to do i don't— on his guys and tell them what to do. i don't think _ on his guys and tell them what to do. i don't think he _ on his guys and tell them what to do. i don't think he is _ on his guys and tell them what to do. i don't think he is doing - on his guys and tell them what tol do. i don't think he is doing plenty of do. idon't think he is doing plenty of that— do. i don't think he is doing plenty of that stuff — do. i don't think he is doing plenty of that stuff but _ do. i don't think he is doing plenty of that stuff but they _ do. i don't think he is doing plenty of that stuff but they haven't - of that stuff but they haven't really — of that stuff but they haven't really got _ of that stuff but they haven't

10:58 pm
leaving some drizzle around some western hills, but to the east of high ground, perhaps some sunshine, many places becoming dry in the afternoon. strong south—westerly winds, very mild day. temperatures widely16—17 celsius, quite a bit warmer than it was on monday for the northern half of the uk. but there is still some rain in the far northwest. that's on that weather front there, and that is going to move its way southwards overnight and into wednesday. it's going to hang around across some different parts of the uk during the day. all the while, though, we are pulling in the air from a long way south, which is why it is so mild for late october. but there is some rain around, which is going to be quite happy over some of the hills. that rain mainly affecting north wales, northwest england, could push back into parts of northern ireland, more especially into southern scotland. to the northwest, there will be some sunshine for a while and some for a while and some showers, and to the south of our rain band, it should be brightening up. a little bit of sunshine coming through, still quite windy, but very mild. temperatures getting up to 18 celsius. now, looking at the rain fall accumulation during wednesday and thursday. i want to highlight the areas that will see the happiest of the rain. these are these bright colours here.
10:59 pm
it looks like it's going to be particularly wet in the southern uplands, but also into cumbria, and that could lead to some because that rain is still around on thursday, it may turn a bit drier across some northwestern parts of scotland and also northern ireland as the rainjust pivots into more of england and wales. through the midlands, much of eastern england, it's likely to still be dry and with a bit of sunshine, those temperatures again reaching 18 celsius. so, a lot going on over the next few days or so. it's going to be quite windy. the winds are going to be in from the southwest, which is why it is going to be so mild, but as we have seen, there will be some rain around, mainly for the western side of the uk, and that will be happy in the hills.
