they've quoted pretty patel, who doesn't seem to want much of an appeal system, she's constantly bashing immigration lawyers — now it would appear the churches in her sights, as well. in the case of the bomber, he appears to have become a failed asylum—seekers in 2014. but he did it within —— didn't become a christian within a matter of days or weeks, his conversion didn't fully take place officially until 2017, some three years later, in this atrocity has taken place some four years after that. so it's a bit of a stretch to extrapolate from that that this is happening in a huge widespread way. but see some figures in evidence and, if as thomas harris claims that this has been going on for decades, then surely the home office on the authorities whose default position on asylum seeking is no, no, they would've cautioned on to it. it won'tjust be a

this was created by a culture iced civilisation, they need to be seen in a museum rather than on a gallery in a museum rather than on a gallery in britain. imagine if some of our great traders were in athens and they told us, "we don't think you are fit enough to hold onto it, we will hold onto them and you can come see this." we would have a fit. i see this." we would have a fit. i will give you both your mobile phone numbers, you can continue speaking for 40 minutes, thenjoin us again on air because that is it for the papers this hour, seeing in a bit. —— see you in a bit. good evening, i'm tulsen tollett, and this is your sports news — where we start with european world cup qualifying, and wales made the task of reaching the world cup just a little easier tonight by holding belgium to a draw. the welsh needed a point

to earn a home semifinal in the world cup play—offs in march. kevin de bruyne's early goal was a setback, but wales recovered, kieffer moore equalising before half—time. the 1—1 result means robert page's side will be seeded in the draw, which will be made later this month. arsenal midfielderjordan nobbs has been recalled to the england squad for the lionesses' world cup qualifiers later this month, after being out with an ankle ligament injury. however, her arsenal team—mate leah williamson has picked up a "significant" hamstring problem, which may see her out of action for the rest of the year. williamson came off during the north london derby draw with tottenham at the weekend. as long—term england captain steph houghton is out injured, williamson has had the armband for all four of england's matches under new head coach sarina wiegman. but it's not clear who'll replace her as skipper for their games against austria and latvia this month.

i can't tell you now because we haven't discussed it yet. it's so fresh that lee is not here with us, so we're just taking our time to make that decision and then talk to the squad first. chelsea striker sam kerr has extended her contract at the club for another two years. the australianjoined in 2019 and won the league with chelsea last season. she's scored 39 goals in 47 appearances. kerr said, "i think the club gives me every opportunity to succeed as a player. i can't see myself going anywhere else in the world or leaving europe, having what i have at chelsea." derby county are now 18 points from safety in the championship after being given a further nine point penalty for breaches of the league's accounting rules. the club had already been docked 12 points after going into administration. the rams are now almost certain to be relegated to league one, and a further three—point penalty will apply if they breach the league's profitability and sustainability rules. freddie steward has described scoring his first try for england as the best moment of his life. it came against australia

at twickenham last saturday, and now the 20—year—old leicester full back says, after watching south arica win the world cup final, he's thrilled to have been selected to play against them this weekend. if you'd have told me when i was watching that game that the next time england played south africa, i'd be involved, i would've laughed at you. it's been an incredible two years. it's been a lot of hard work, butjust to have it all happen so quickly has been amazing. it's not an easy, but it's been a fantastic experience, and i'm just grateful for the opportunity to represent england. mercedes have asked for a review of the decision not to penalise red bull's max verstappen, forforcing lewis hamilton wide in the sao paulo grand prix. the incident was "noted" by the stewards, but there was no investigation. mercedes have lodged a "right of review" after new evidence emerged, believed to be the on—board camera footage. it happened as hamilton was trying to pass his title rivalfor the lead — he went on to win the race, cutting the dutchman's lead

to 14 points with three grand prix's to go. staying with formula one, where the driver line—up is now complete for 2022. guanyu zhou will become the first chinese driver to race in an f1 grand prix, when he replaces antonio giovinazzi at alfa romeo next season, partnering current mercedes driver valterri bottas. reginaldo rosario reports. he's been described as a trailblazer that will write a pivotal page in his country's motorsport history by his new team. but guanyu zhou's pass to becoming china first formula one driver has been far from straightforward. born in shanghai, zhou moved to the uk at 12 to pursue his racing career, where he began to make steady progress first in carting, and then single seaters.

he went to the furry driver academy, and then this season his race wins have been amount and title challenge in formula to bring enough for alpha romero to take the plunge. when you are doing the pole position and winning in bahrain, i think you have the ability that he is a front runner. i don't know if, at the end, he will be a champion or not. this won't to change the potential if he's a frontrunner. he also brings in considerable backing from chinese companies — something that played a massive factor in alfa romeo's thinking at the end to move away from the back of the grid next season. it's good news for us, for the company, for our sponsors, and also for the f1 in general. i think at the end, it's a huge push for everybody. he now carries the hopes of 1.4 billion people on his shoulders — and formula one will be

hoping his arrival can help the sport gain traction in a market that has been crying out for a driver of its own. reginaldo rosario, bbc news. young skateboard star sky brown has made her debut in professional surfing at the layback pro women qualifying series in brazil. despite placing second in herfirst—round heat, she was eliminated as she incurred an interference penalty and saw her score reduced. the 13—year old is the youngest professional skateboarder in the world, and won a bronze medal at the 2020 olympics in the park event. for everything else, you can head to the bbc sport website. but that's all your sport for now. wednesday morning will be a little bit colder compared to the last couple of mornings. and, indeed, by day, it'll feel a touch fresher, too. but overall, the next 2—3 days will remain above the average for the time of year. i want to show you the jet stream — and there is a dip in thejet stream at the moment across the uk, and you can see the blue colours —
10:56 pm
so that's the slightly colder atmosphere that's spread across the country into the early hours of wednesday. and, with the clearer skies, that means that, in many towns and cities, temperatures will be around five celsius or so, especially out towards the east and in central parts of the uk. even colder than that in aberdeen, barely above freezing. but that means a lot of bright and crisp weather in the morning, especially across central, eastern, and southern areas of the uk. not necessarily in western scotland and northern ireland, always a bit more cloud here and a chance of catching a shower. and you can see those temperatures actually not far off the average, just a fraction above. but look what happens on thursday — another change in the jet stream. now this time, the jet stream's way to the north of us, it's bulging northwards of the uk and allowing for a stream of really mild air to sweep in from the azores. so, mild south—westerlies across the uk, cloudy and damp in western and northern scotland —
10:57 pm
but where the skies clear, where the sun pops out for any lengthy period of time, temperatures will reach around 15—16, maybe even 17 celsius to the east of the highlands because of something called the foehn effect — you'll have to look that up, not enough time to explain it. but look where we are, nine celsius is the average this time of november — we are talking about 17 celsius, eight degrees above the average for the time of year. and the same pattern continues in a friday, as well — east of the highlands, possibly 17, we could get 16 also east of the pennines, and widely around 14—15 celsius. and then, a reversal in the wind direction — you can see this time, rather than from the southwest, it's coming in straight from the north. now this looks pretty cold, doesn't it? well, it won't be that cold — it will be relatively speaking, but actually, we'll be going down from 15 to around nine celsius, which, of course, is about the average for the time of year, give or take.
