this is bbc news — the headlines. after the budget, a leading think—tank warns that millions of middle—income families will be worse off next year. but the chancellor says the economy is improving. people should have reassurance that because of the plan we put in place a year ago, to ensure that our economy now is recovering strongly, more people are in work and wages are rising, we can face the future with a bit more confidence. the transport secretary confirms the remaining seven countries on england's travel red list will be removed. arrivals from colombia, peru, panama, the dominican republic, haiti, venezuala and ecuador will not need to quarantine in a hotel. the teenager who murdered two sisters in what he believed was a satanic sacrifice is sentenced
5:01 pm
to life in prison, with a minimum of 35 years. the mother of bibaa henry and nicole smallman says he should never be released. come 35 years�* time, they won't let him out. they won't let him out. i won't let them let him out. a british trawler has been seized by france and another has been fined, amid an escalating row over post—brexit fishing rights. heavy rain has hit northern england and southern scotland — homes have been flooded in cumbria and the council in hawick has advised people in at—risk areas to �*consider plans for evacuating' .
5:02 pm
the chancellor has been defending his budget, saying the government was investing in public services, future growth and people's skills and prioritising those on the lowest incomes. but a leading economic think tank has predicted that millions of people in the uk will be worse off in the short term due to tax increases and the rising cost of living. the institute of fiscal studies predicts that for many middle income families, living standards will fall over the coming year. here's our political correspondent nick eardley hi, how are you? really nice to see you. he's enthusiastic, but how will the public feel about rishi sunak�*s budget? after the treasury's big pitch yesterday, today is about the detail. oh, i do, it's controversial. mr sunak was spending his cash at bury market this morning, but over the next few years he's going to be spending a lot
5:03 pm
of taxpayer money, too, funded by the biggest tax burden since the �*50s. so, will it be worth it? people should have reassurance that because of the plan we put in place a year ago to ensure that our economy now is recovering strongly, more people are in work and wages are rising, we can face the future with a bit more confidence. and yesterday we did take action and noticeably we froze fuel duty, especially when fuel prices are at almost a ten—year high, but also we cut the tax on the lowest paid people, which i think will make an enormous difference. that's a reference to universal credit changes which will allow in—work claimants to keep more of their benefits. wages are set to go up from april for public sector workers, and those on the minimum wage, but the cost of living is going up, too. inflation could make household budgets even tighter. labour says the chancellor should have done more to help with the cost of living. if you look at the tax system, which burdens working people and gives a tax cut to bankers, or if you look at economic growth, that by the end of this parliament
5:04 pm
is set to be just 1.3%, it's certainly not the sort of budget i would have delivered. the big political theme of this budget was that the government is still going to spend money. there were a number of announcements designed to be voter—friendly which mean the state is still going to play a big role in our lives. but many families and many households are facing a tough winter and when the numbers are crunched there are questions over what benefits we'll all feel. experts say millions of people will actually be worse off because of rising costs, higher energy bills, fuel bills, higherfood prices and increases in tax. the worry for the government is for all the chancellor's upbeat delivery, the voters may not get much feel—good factor. high inflation, rising taxes, poor growth, still undermined more by brexit than by the pandemic, will see real living standards barely rising and for many falling over the next year. he's got a bit more money to spend...
5:05 pm
wait, sorry... ..because the economy is in better shape than many expected, but that doesn't mean that there aren't challenging times ahead for many. so what's the verdict of businesses in bury on the chancellor's budget, leaving aside rishi sunak�*s mixup with burnley? let's talk to subrah krishnan harihara from greater manchester chamber of commerce. harihara from greater manchester thank harihara from greater manchester you for being wi has thank you for being with us. what has been the reaction of businesses critically help with business rates? that must be welcome.— that must be welcome. that's absolutely _ that must be welcome. that's absolutely correct. _ that must be welcome. that's absolutely correct. first - that must be welcome. that's absolutely correct. first of - that must be welcome. that's| absolutely correct. first of all, thank you for having me. the 50% reduction in business rates and the fact that business rates will not be payable on increments that's welcome. of course the chancellor was in bari this morning for the party has been the recipient of plenty of that levelling up funds for making improvements to the marketplace was up so that again is
5:06 pm
something that is going to attract more businesses there and probably helps investment in that area. [30 helps investment in that area. do ou helps investment in that area. do you think the governments genuine and serious when it talks about levelling up, as somebody who represent businesses in the northwest?— represent businesses in the northwest? ., ., , ., northwest? there are two things to discuss, northwest? there are two things to discuss. first _ northwest? there are two things to discuss, first is _ northwest? there are two things to discuss, first is what _ northwest? there are two things to discuss, first is what are _ northwest? there are two things to discuss, first is what are the - discuss, first is what are the immediate concerns for businesses? and immediate concerns for businesses are very much similar to what household stays. the first is the current cost of import prices without materials are more expensive, hard to get, supply chain disruption. that's i's eye. on the other side their space with significant shortage of labour. even businesses which are the worst expected sectors and have put staff on furlough and now find it difficult to open up and operate and expand capacity because of the shortages in labour, that is one area where levelling up can have an impact. because levelling up cannot be achieved by a one—off projects for that levelling up cannot be
5:07 pm
achieved by giving a little bit of money for bari and a little bit of money for bari and a little bit of money for bari and a little bit of money for action as in many cases these projects in small local areas are competing with one another for an approval of funds. that is not the way we can actual level up for that from a business point of view levelling up will mean significant improvement in conductivity, investment in business trading skills, etc. that's how we achieve levelling up. that requires a long—term plan which we are yet to see from the government. how long-term plan which we are yet to see from the government.- see from the government. how do you see from the government. how do you see the economic _ see from the government. how do you see the economic outlook _ see from the government. how do you see the economic outlook was - see from the government. how do you see the economic outlook was met - see the economic outlook was met with ed warnings today from various think tanks about millions of people being worse off, households being worse off because of higher taxes, rising cost of living, higher inflation so on. it is business seeing the same as many families and households are? to a seeing the same as many families and households are?— households are? to a large extent businesses — households are? to a large extent businesses are _ households are? to a large extent businesses are impacted - households are? to a large extent businesses are impacted pretty i households are? to a large extent i businesses are impacted pretty much the same way. what we have is a situation where prices are going
5:08 pm
out, inflationary pressures are building but at the same time businesses have become burdened with higher cost of wages, increase in national living wage etc for that while the merits of that cannot be disputed what businesses would have liked his support elsewhere. for example also the national insurance increases. there are other ways in which businesses would have actually received help. an employment element which is available to businesses so have the level of employment enhance, that is something that would've actually alleviate some of the wage pressure. also hate doing i helped recruitment as we had up to the holiday season.— the holiday season. thank you for our the holiday season. thank you for your thoughts _ the holiday season. thank you for your thoughts in _ the holiday season. thank you for your thoughts in your _ the holiday season. thank you for your thoughts in your view - the holiday season. thank you for your thoughts in your view from l the holiday season. thank you for l your thoughts in your view from the northwest. the transport secretary says that from monday morning — there will no longer be any red list countries for international travel into england. that means that arrivals from colombia, peru, panama, the dominican republic, haiti, venezuela and ecuador will no longer need
5:09 pm
to quarantine in a hotel. this decision affects all four nations in the uk. in the last few minutes grant shops have been explaining what the changes will mean for travellers. this is great they will mount not have to go through a mandatory quarantine as a red list reduces to zero countries with up with been able to do this now because the variance of concern that we've been tracking are no longer of concern to the chief medical officers. this will apply throughout the whole of the uk. we always take our advice from the chief medical officers, the experts and they've been saying the reason we can take these remaining seven countries off ? because we are no longer concerned about their particular variance they are all being squeezed by the delta variant in those countries. we no longer have significant effects. i should
5:10 pm
point out that all of this only applies to people coming here who are fully vaccinated. for those who are fully vaccinated. for those who are not afraid it's still predeparture testing, it's a day eight test, those will have to be pcr tests. this is a regime which is much more straightforward but only applies to people fully vaccinated as you might expect. transport secretary. with me now to explain the announcement is our business correspondent simon browning they are keeping the red list but there were no countries on it. one of the implications, does not effectively mean the only difference now is whether you been vaccinated or not in terms of travelling? absolutely correct. firstly the red list is waiting at all of the countries are being taken off of it for now. some hotel rooms are going to be retained by the government. if the epidemiological situation changes in other countries, variance of concern suddenly emerge in the uk government will want to put a quick break on thin those hotel rooms will remain. the big differentiating it
5:11 pm
now if you going to travel is if you are vaccinated you no longer have to quarantine because the countries on the list are no longer seen as in epidemiological threats. those countries will come off the list on monday at four pm. if your w vaccinated you cannot come into the uk. {if vaccinated you cannot come into the uk. . ., , ., , , uk. of course the travel industry will be celebrating _ uk. of course the travel industry will be celebrating they - uk. of course the travel industry will be celebrating they really . will be celebrating they really hated these letters. and a red list was the last one.— was the last one. absolutely delighted- — was the last one. absolutely delighted. airline _ was the last one. absolutely delighted. airline uk - was the last one. absolutely delighted. airline uk have . was the last one. absolutely - delighted. airline uk have already said this is another great step, great move forward to make people feel confident and courage to travel again. we all know what devastating time they have had. and the christmas period for the travel industry is absolutely critical. they had a tough summer because some of these quite difficult regime for a test were still in place, it was quite discouraging for people to travel so lots of people didn't. half term is been a good time for the travel industry. there's lots of people taken breaks in the south of europe, the canary islands but they want christmas back and this is
5:12 pm
encouraging. the thing to remember is that you can travel to foreign countries and come back to the uk the big differences you must still check the regulations of the countries where you are travelling to because lots of countries have different rules. but it's a big change at a good start. france has seized a british trawler as the row over post brexit fishing rights escalates. the french claim the boat was fishing in their waters without a licence and it's been taken to the port of le havre. the french are angry that some of their boats have been refused licences to fish in uk waters — and they've threatened to block british vessels from their ports. one french minister has said we �*need to speak the language of force because that seems to be the only thing this british government understands�*. hugh schofield reports from paris. the british—registered cornelis gert jan was impounded yesterday by the french maritime authorities, who say it was fishing in french
5:13 pm
waters without a proper licence. it�*s now moored in le havre pending possible judicial proceedings against the captain and owner. it�*s clearly intended as a message to the british about what�*s to come from next week, when the french begin to enact reprisal measures in the row over fishing licences. before a french parliamentary committee, europe minister clement beaune spelt out what�*s to happen. from tuesday, he said, no uk fishing boat will be allowed to unload its catch in french ports. there will be intensified inspections on uk goods entering france by ferry and the channel tunnel. and in a second wave of measures, france may raise the tariff on electricity it supplies to the channel islands. france says this is because the uk and the channel islands have failed to keep their side of the deal on fishing licences signed as part of brexit. the british government says that�*s not true. it is very disappointing to see
5:14 pm
the comments that came from france yesterday. we believe these are disappointing and disproportionate, and not what we would expect from a close ally and partner. the measures being threatened do not appear to be compatible with the trading cooperation agreement or wider international law. the licences row flared in may, when protesting french fishing boats sailed in flotilla intojersey waters and london sent in two navy patrol boats in response. today, though, it�*s the french government that�*s starting to act tough. for some, approaching french presidential elections are complicating the picture. it only really make sense to me in terms of french domestic politics because this is really... the licensing issue is a technical matter to be resolved at a technical level, and my understanding is that quite a lot of progress has been made in resolving it. both sides say that talks are still under way over granting more licences, so there�*s a chance this escalating trade war can be averted.
5:15 pm
but neither country is optimistic that it will be. luke pollard is the shadow environment secretary and joins us now from westminster. the government have this bribed the french position here and the french threats as disappointing and disproportionate, not what we would expect from a close ally and partner. do you agree with that assessment? i partner. do you agree with that assessment?— partner. do you agree with that assessment? ., ., , ., assessment? i do. the actions at the french government _ assessment? i do. the actions at the french government have _ assessment? i do. the actions at the french government have taken - assessment? i do. the actions at the french government have taken are i french government have taken are wrong and they�*re disproportionate. but we do need to recognise that there is a problem at the heart of theirs. the botched brexit deal, especially for fishing theirs. the botched brexit deal, especially forfishing has theirs. the botched brexit deal, especially for fishing has seen in norma�*s tensions not only with uk fishers who believe that they were sold out and betrayed by the deal but also by french fishers who feel exactly the same. ? brexit. what we need is ministers on both side of the general to de—escalate, to make sure that their language is
5:16 pm
proportionate and they apparently focus on finding a solution to the problems rather than raising tensions. we already know that this has been going on notjust for a few days or weeks but for many months since the withdrawal agreement was signed. that�*s why we need ministers to get serious about finding a solution to get through this because there will be a temptation on both sides of the channel to sabre rattle, to use violent language and thatis rattle, to use violent language and that is not the way we are going to find a solution that keeps british and french fishers in work and avoids the potential of clashes at sea. because both starting into one another as we�*ve seen in the past risks lives and we can�*t be having that. risks lives and we can't be having that. �* , . , risks lives and we can't be having that. �* , ., , ., ., that. it's a bit unfair on the british government - that. it's a bit unfair on the british government to - that. it's a bit unfair on the british government to say i that. it's a bit unfair on the | british government to say is that. it's a bit unfair on the - british government to say is using violent language. it said that it�*s seeking talks with the french government. it�*s seeking to mediate a way out of this. i do government. it's seeking to mediate a way out of this.— a way out of this. i do hope that is the approach _ a way out of this. i do hope that is the approach that _ a way out of this. i do hope that is the approach that the _ a way out of this. i do hope that is the approach that the british - the approach that the british government takes everyday coming up. sadly in the past we always have good and i haven�*t always enough.
5:17 pm
the key thing is there�*s been a real problem with fish and art at the brexit deal. not only a sense of betrayal on uk fishers, especially allowing foreign boats into the parts of our waters that are closest to the uk mainland but about quota swaps and about how they work in other parts. as an industry we have british boats that regularly fresh and french waters and french boats that regularly fish and british waters. there needs to be a firm focus on resolving this issue not just in the short—term but in the long term. because it�*s in all our interest that we have a safe and sustainable fishing industry. especially when the majority of the fish that we catch as a nation we export and the majority of fish we eat as a nation we import. getting fish over borders is really important. this is a critical time for the fishing industry.- for the fishing industry. you're sa in: it for the fishing industry. you're saying it was _ for the fishing industry. you're saying it was a _ for the fishing industry. you're saying it was a bad _ for the fishing industry. you're saying it was a bad deal - for the fishing industry. you're saying it was a bad deal but i for the fishing industry. you're i saying it was a bad deal but that implies you think we need to do more to help the french fishermen as well as the british my responsibility is special to eight especially as a coastal mp is to get a better
5:18 pm
outcome for british fishers was up certainly there�*s a real sense that they feel betrayed. certainly there's a real sense that they feel betrayed.— certainly there's a real sense that they feel betrayed. there is a sense amon . st they feel betrayed. there is a sense amongst lots _ they feel betrayed. there is a sense amongst lots of _ they feel betrayed. there is a sense amongst lots of british _ they feel betrayed. there is a sense amongst lots of british fishing - amongst lots of british fishing communities that they think the french government stands out for their fishers french government stands out for theirfishers more french government stands out for their fishers more than the british stands out for british fishers. there is real tension here. in that mess we must be very careful to avoid the risk of escalation. because escalation especially at this time where a huge amount of the profits for the entire year for british fishing are made as exported the build—up to christmas for that we had a really tough time as uk fishing industry a sense brexit and because of the pandemic and we need to make sure there�*s no disruption. if both sides of the channel had that firm focus of course both sides will be back in their own fishers. i�*m a strong supporter of british fishing and i want to see us get good outcomes from this. but we need to make sure that we are focused on a solution and that�*s what i hope the uk government will be focused in the uk government will be focused in the next couple of days. because the risk of escalation is a real one and a risk of those classes becoming
5:19 pm
violent i�*m afraid is also real. thank you for your time. a man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing two sisters in a london park. nineteen—year—old danyal hussein must serve a minimum of 35 years, after he was found guilty of the murder of sisters bibaa henry and nicole smallman, who were stabbed to death injune last year as part of a satanic blood pact. an investigation by the police watchdog criticised the response of officers when the sisters were reported missing: their mother has dismissed an apology from the metropolitan police. june kelly reports. mina smallman has been highly critical of the metropolitan police�*s response when her daughters were reported missing, but today she and her husband chris walked into court with simon harding, the senior met detective who led the murder investigation. a sign of the family�*s
5:20 pm
closeness to his team. such a vivacious shot of her daughters, but this was bibaa henry and nicole smallman in what would be the last few hours of their lives. after a picnic with friends during the first lockdown, the sisters stayed on in the park. they were celebrating bibaa�*s birthday together and died side—by—side. a stranger, danyal hussein, was lying in wait watching them, and he was armed with a knife. he�*s believed to have attacked bibaa first. he stabbed her eight times. nicole saw what he had done to her sister and put up a fight. she was stabbed 28 times. because of the initial poor police response, it was the sisters�* friends who launched a search and it was nicole�*s boyfriend who discovered the bodies. danyal hussein was arrested after his dna was found at the scene. he had developed a fascination with satanic ideology, and he had drawn up a plan
5:21 pm
to sacrifice women in a note signed in his own blood. after seeing him sentenced to a minimum of 35 years, mina smallman shared her thoughts. today we�*re celebrating what is wonderful about the metropolitan police. i�*ve never been one to cast a whole organisation by one particular sort of incident. but we do have a problem. we do have an underground that is infiltrated and growing in our met police. because of covid, danyal hussein wasn�*t in court. he appeared by video link from belmarsh top security prison. he showed little respect for the legal process. before the hearing began, he kept throwing his face mask in the air and when the judge began sentencing him, he turned his chair
5:22 pm
sideways so he was not facing the camera. since the murders, bibaa�*s daughter has had a baby boy. he will learn about everything that was lost when bibaa and nicole were taken from their family. june kelly, bbc news, at the old bailey. let�*s get more on that announcement in the last half an hour, that all remaining countries on the �*red list�* for international travel to the uk will be removed from 1st of november. joining me now is gemma haslemere from haselmeretravel in surrey(os) i guess he travel industry is delighted with this news. the end of the last travel as countries was yes, the travel industry is really pleased to hear that we will no longer have hotel quarantine from the first of november. bilge longer have hotel quarantine from the first of november.— longer have hotel quarantine from the first of november. also all the countries at _ the first of november. also all the countries at the _ the first of november. also all the countries at the moment - the first of november. also all the countries at the moment have - the first of november. also all the l countries at the moment have been removed from the red letters. sad to say the red list has a quite that way and still remains and be used as and when necessary. which is
5:23 pm
obviously something that is not great to hear because what we want to do is resist store consumer confidence. having there�*s still overhead to somewhat concerning but relatively understandable. the road however is we have not ended our journey here. the road is a relatively rocky for this industry there�*s lots of hurdles to overcome. to clean out the entry restrictions and to all the countries across the world which remain completely different. still very necessary to make sure you are checking exactly where you are going and what is needed to travel to put up particular as our rates of covid are so high here. it�*s understandable that other countries are quite cautious about letting travellers then. ., �* then. you're right, the red travellers _ then. you're right, the red travellers is _ then. you're right, the red travellers is going - then. you're right, the red travellers is going to - then. you're right, the red i travellers is going to continue then. you're right, the red - travellers is going to continue in existence it�*s just there are no countries on it. effectively now it�*s about whether you been vaccinated or haven�*t been vaccinated. what do you think all of this means for the coming months of the travel industry? what are bookings like for the christmas and new year. for bookings like for the christmas and

a small number of properties have been hit by flooding in cumbria today — as a month�*s worth of rain is expected to fall in just 36 hours. some holiday lets in cockermouth have been affected — but defences installed after 2009 have helped spare the kind of scenes witnessed during storm desmond in 2015. mark mcalindon reports. we are standing at the very point where cocker meets the derwent, the two run through cockermouth and you can see the height the figures now even at the peak has passed at one point this town came close to devastation. by and large, the flood defences here have protected most of the people here but there have been one or two properties where water got in. we�*ve been through this before so it�*s get up, get on with it. yes, it�*s upsetting but we kind of got a bit hardened to it, got used to it, and we just have to crack on and sort it out. of course, back in 2009 and 2015
5:27 pm
anyone he was here cannot forget pictures of water running waist deep and worse on main street saint last night of course was an anxious night for people who own businesses in this town. since the 2009 and 2015 floods, 90% of us haven't got insurance, so if we get flooded this time we have to pay for rebuild and everything, which, you know, goes into hundreds of thousands. we will continue to work with the council and the environment agency, and monitor the river levels and if people need help, then we will mobilize our volunteers to provide that help. further upstream in the derwent it is hoped that keswick has survived the worst of last night�*s water, but everyone will be keeping an anxious watch on the forecast over days to come. mike mcalinden, bbc look north in cockermouth. our correspondent megan paterson is in cockermouth.

5:29 pm
because of that people here are quite quick to act when there is any threat of heavy rainfall behind the river is main street. this afternoon lots of business out there flood defences up specially measured up devices that have been in place are a number of years was up some of them have started to take those flood defences down because they felt that the peak of the river flow had passed, the rain was easing off is up there is a sense of calm preparedness here. people are watching, waiting, they�*re anxious about what the weather might do but they are also used to seeing a lot of heavy rain in this part of the world. over the next 2a or 36 hours the environment agency warning people to be careful, be mindful that the weather is still likely to continue with a lot of heavy rainfall. this bit of hope here as well that the worst is passed with ups for two properties as you know have been flooded. there is hope that there won�*t be too many more to add to that list of the people who are all too familiar that when that water gets into your home or
5:30 pm

5:48 pm
that is critical. and there is a way to do that and there�*s a lot of r&d needed for that. second is we need to invest in the technologies for the future that will continue that and make certain parts of that easier. and we also need to accept that there�*s got to be some change in society in terms of the way we consume and the way we contribute to emissions. and those things together, i think, are really, really important. if those things are done and there are clear plans, 1.5 is achievable, but it�*s not achievable without significant action and steep reduction in emissions over the period to 2030. and there are the little things that we can all do that may seem tiny individually but you aggregate them across millions and it makes a difference. so, you know, i can tell you what i do. i cycle to work, i have reduced my meat consumption, i don�*t fly as much as i used to. it doesn�*t mean i�*ve stopped meat consumption or i will never fly again. i will. i am going to, but i will reduce those things. and i think those aggregate actions across millions make
5:49 pm
a difference as well. on their own, they are not sufficient. but we need to get technologies in place and we need to invest in technologies in the future. people around the world want their governments to take strong action on climate change, according to a new poll commissioned by the bbc. more than 30,000 people were surveyed — across 31 countries — about their attitudes to climate change policies. more than half? 56% — say they want their governments to play a key leadership role. earlier, our environment correspondent matt mcgrath explained that whilst 56% might not sound like a huge majority, it is a significant increase. the opinion polls for us here carried out a very similar surveyjust before the paris climate talks back in 2015, six years ago, and the difference between then and now is quite remarkable. people looking for strong action from their government, strong leadership was... it�*s increased by 25%, essentially, over that period. and it�*s increased in a lot of interesting countries,
5:50 pm
in india and in china. in china, back in 2015, only 18% of people wanted to see their governments take strong action. that has gone up to nearly half of respondents now. so, it�*s an opinion poll, it�*s a snapshot of opinion, but it does show that people are more serious about climate change and want their governments to take more serious action on it. the uk�*s newest polar research ship has completed a year of sea trials and is ready to set sail for it�*s maiden voyage to antarctica. the 200 million pound vessel first made headlines when thousands of people voted to call it boaty mcboatface — but it was eventually named the rss sir david attenborough after the broadcaster and naturalist. it�*s strong enough to sail through metre thick ice sheets in the frozen antarctic seas. our science correspondent rebecca morelle reports from greenwich. heading up the thames, it�*s the most advanced polar ship ever to set sail. it took just four years to build
5:51 pm
and now it�*s spending three days in london before its first voyage to antarctica. and on board, the man it�*s named after, sir david attenborough. i am indeed a very proud man to be standing in this remarkable vessel. i know that the findings made on this ship in the next few years will be of the greatest value and importance to the welfare of the world. this is a state—of—the—art research ship, and here on the top deck is the helipad so scientists and the crew can be brought to and from the ship while she�*s at sea. in here, you have the living quarters — a cosy cabin for two — because the crew on here can stay on board for two months at a time. there�*s room for 30 crew and 60 scientists on the ship. and this is the all—important coffee shop — where, after a hard day of polar research, the crew can come in
5:52 pm
and take a bit of a break. this big hole in the middle of the ship goes all the way from the sea up to here. it�*s called a moon pool, and it means that scientists can access the ocean with their instruments, whatever the weather. the moon pool is really significant because it means we can get these really valuable data points. the southern ocean is one of these places that we don�*t have very many observations from because it�*s so difficult to get there. and the southern ocean might feel really far away from us here in the uk, but it�*s really important for our climate as a whole. it takes up a lot of the carbon dioxide and the heat that we put into the atmosphere. it�*s notjust the water — scientists will be studying every aspect of this rapidly changing ecosystem. it�*s notjust the water — scientists will be studying every aspect of this

from the boy abandoned by his father, to the homeless teenager sleeping on a studio floor in kingston so he could wake up and make music, marley�*s life from cradle to grave is told. marley�*s music provides the context. it brims over with activism, politics and power. whilst it is political, whilst it is heartfelt, whilst there is an element of activism that is inside it and inherent in bob marley�*s music and in the musical...it is also a celebration of him as an individual, of those ideas, of the acceptance of those ideas now. while his music is loved the world over, for those recreating marley�*s life, the rehearsal room became a deeply private place. people have a really personal connection to bob marley, especially because most people in that room are of caribbean descent and, actually,
5:56 pm
most people in that room are jamaican heritage. so they grew up not only with the music, but their parents grew up with the music. and it felt like their parents' stories, like... rita reminds me very much of my own mum. putting the life and music of bob marley on stage has taken years. good news, then — that although the show�*s only been on a couple of weeks, its run has been extended to next year, giving us more chance to go and celebrate. emma north, bbc news. # i hope you like jammin' too!# five is up next with the weather at six pm. next, a lot of flooding, come be on the northwest, and people really worried about what the weather has got in store for them. yes, absolutely. a couple of days now of incessant rain, and parts of southern scotland, we have seen flood warnings increase the impact as well from both flooding and travel disruption. it is in that office amber warning still out for cumbria. amber warning still out for cumbria. a bit of ll in the rain in the past
