this is bbc news with the latest headlines: people travelling abroad are facing disruption at airports, stations and on the roads, as the half—term getaway begins. more conservative mps publicly declare they have no confidence in the prime minister, after sue gray's report into lockdown parties in downing street. outrage as authorities in texas admit police were wrong to delay storming the school classroom, where a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers. the information i was given turned out, in part, to be inaccurate and i am absolutely livid about that. latin america reports its first case of monkeypox, as the world health organization warns the number of infections will continue to rise.
liverpool and real madrid fans descend on paris to support their teams in the final of european club football's most prestigious prize. and i live at the stadium, six hours until kick off in what promises to be one of the great champions league finals. people are facing huge disruption to their travel plans as the half—term break gets underway. dozens of flights have been cancelled and there have been long delays at ports and on the roads, and for cross—channel services. and there are warnings that the disruption is likely to continue for more than a week. let's take you through the latest developments.
easyjet is cancelling more than 200 flights over the next ten days from gatwick airport, insisting it needs to in order "to provide reliable services over this busy period". there have been long queues at london's st pancras station for eurostar services across the channel, as families head to disneyland paris and football fans try to get to the french capital ahead of the champions league final. and people are being urged to check the latest advice before travelling to the port of dover, where there are huge tailbacks as hundreds of lorries queue to get through. tourists, however, are being given priority. let's go straight to dover then, where we can speak to the bbc�*s simonjones. good afternoon. a lovely day, a less lovely scene, not so surprising below you, there is always a bit of the queue getting into the port, but it is how far back it is stretching.
it is not so lovely if you're sitting in your car in this heat and let me show you the latest situation. you can seejust let me show you the latest situation. you can see just some of the cars and vans waiting to get across the channel. among them, a few anxious liverpool supporters, trying to get to paris for the champions league final tonight. they are anxiously looking at their watches as the hours tick by. on top of this, a lot of tourist traffic, because it is the start of the half term break and a lot of families keen to get away now that travel restrictions have largely been lifted. add into the equation, p ferries is only running two out of its four ferries, that is after 800 of its workers were sacked this year and we now have increased checks after brexit and it is all been described as a bit of a perfect storm, but it is notjust dover that is suffering, we have seen long queues at st pancras station as
people also try to get the eurostar, it is completely sold out. also problems at the airports as well. we know that easyjet have cancelled 200 orso know that easyjet have cancelled 200 or so flights over the next ten days from gatwick airport, some other flights have also been cancelled and that will add to the disruption as well. the advice we often give in situations like this, check before you travel and i think that applies more than ever today.— more than ever today. simon, in terms of how — more than ever today. simon, in terms of how the _ more than ever today. simon, in terms of how the weekend - more than ever today. simon, in terms of how the weekend is - more than ever today. simon, in i terms of how the weekend is likely to pan out, what are they saying that the port? the weekend is at peak, but there will be another pick next weekend as people try to get back either for thejubilee back either for the jubilee celebrations orjust back either for thejubilee celebrations orjust to start back either for thejubilee celebrations or just to start the working week and the school term again. i working week and the school term aaain. ~' ., working week and the school term aaain. ~' . , ., again. i think the warning is that this is going _ again. i think the warning is that this is going to _ again. i think the warning is that this is going to be _ again. i think the warning is that this is going to be a _ again. i think the warning is that this is going to be a tricky - again. i think the warning is that this is going to be a tricky few i this is going to be a tricky few days at the peak is expected to be today, with the football fans added into the equation, but tomorrow will
be very busy in dover as well as people set off on their holidays and then we will have people travelling over the platinum jubilee then we will have people travelling over the platinumjubilee bank holiday and as ever we are being warned to expect delays and people are being told when they turn up at dover, make sure you have plenty of food and drink and what you are not seen here are the lorry drivers caught up in all of this, because on the outskirts of dover, on the a20, there were around 750 lorries queueing to get across the channel and they are parked up on the roads outside of dover, so that the town does not become clogged up. we have had the coastguard going around, giving out food and drink to some of the lorry drivers who have been stuck for hours. we know that tourist traffic is being given priority the moment and the authorities in kent hope the freight will clear over the next day or so because traditionally lorries do not tend to travel on a sunday, but for
lorry drivers today, they are facing a pretty long wait in some pretty hot conditions.— hot conditions. simon jones in dover, thank _ hot conditions. simon jones in dover, thank you very - hot conditions. simon jones in dover, thank you very much. i let's get more on this, then. joining us live now from hertfordshire is lisa minot, the sun's travel edior. lovely to speak to you. you are staying at home this weekend, probably very wise. can you give us a bit of context. some of this is just the nature of the time of year, but there do seem to be some added complications, like the announcement from easyjet, what is behind that? unfortunately it is down to staffing issues, easyjet, like many other airlines during the pandemic, face no income, billions of pounds of outgoings and it took a decision to make a lot of staff redundant and those staff, they perhaps imagine would come back when the schedules came back up and travel was once again possible, but those staff have perhaps found otherjobs, it is not a highly paid industry and the hours are anti—social and in the course of
the last few years, perhaps they found otherjobs and that means they did not have the same number of crew coming back on board as quickly as they thought, they are having to train new crew that takes time and also takes time in terms of vetting for security reasons and that is the reason why we have had the problem. in the industry as a whole, airports have had issues with this as well, they have tried to throw —— michael fly before they could work and they do not have to start yet, to have the full schedules they have to run. that is an interesting way to put it. the contraction was so severe in the airline industry over the last few years, that people thought they would be able to ease back in and from where you sit, is it fair to say that maybe the industry is somewhat underestimated how the recovery would pan out.— recovery would pan out. listen, if the did recovery would pan out. listen, if they did underestimated, - recovery would pan out. listen, if they did underestimated, they i recovery would pan out. listen, if- they did underestimated, they should not have been selling the flights, these are flights that people have booked that are on the schedules, it really is a case that they have put
all of these flights back on, they could see there was huge demand, the minute the restrictions were lifted, people perhaps had not travelled for two years, were desperate to get away, on holidays and to see friends and family and the flights were all in the system, people put to them and then realise they did not have the crew to actually have those flights actually going out as they should do, hence the cancellations we have seen. easyjet points out, normally they will be 425 flights a day coming out of gatwick in the next ten days and they cancelled only 2a, but 2a flights a day for ten days, that is 36,000 people who have had to organise new flights, cancelled trips they have a plan, many months ago and that is not great for the travelling public to have any kind of confidence in the industry. have any kind of confidence in the indust . ., have any kind of confidence in the indust . . ., , , have any kind of confidence in the indust . . , , ., industry. that raises the question of rices, industry. that raises the question of prices, prices _ industry. that raises the question of prices, prices are _ industry. that raises the question of prices, prices are already - industry. that raises the question| of prices, prices are already going up of prices, prices are already going up because of the external factors, like inflation and feel because, if you then add in that there is a kind of lack of supply and a big demand,
thatis of lack of supply and a big demand, that is also going to push prices up further, notjust for those passengers having to rebook flights, because they will be booking at the last minute, but also, presumably, into the summer season as well. that is riaht, into the summer season as well. that is right. we — into the summer season as well. that is right. we are _ into the summer season as well. trust is right, we are going to have to appreciate that airlines have made virtually no money, they have lost billions over the last couple of years, they are going to have to increase flights, they will have increased staffing costs, costs in terms of their fuel and we are going to have to accept that is the case, but i think if people are prepared to accept that flights will be more expensive, if those flights to actually run, if they are on time, not delayed and they do run, they are not cancelled and i think that is where we have got this perfect storm this weekend, with flights being cancelled, at such a busy period, even though there are easyjet customers who are due compensation, it is not going to be any good in terms of wanting to get away, because any flights that are remaining might be hugely expensive and that they will not be able to afford the flights that possibly are
still available. are afford the flights that possibly are still available.— still available. are you worried about the _ still available. are you worried about the stability _ still available. are you worried about the stability of - still available. are you worried about the stability of the - still available. are you worried | about the stability of the airline market? the conversation is interesting, quite properly passengers will be compensated, but that will cost a lot of money as well. it that will cost a lot of money as well. , ~ that will cost a lot of money as well. , . , ., ., , well. it very much is and that is wh ba well. it very much is and that is why ba have — well. it very much is and that is why ba have been _ well. it very much is and that is why ba have been doing - well. it very much is and that is why ba have been doing their l why ba have been doing their cancellations much further in advance. they are telling people before the two weeks are up for departures that their flight is cancelled or their flight has departures that their flight is cancelled or theirflight has been amended and that means they do not have to pay compensation and in the case of easyjet, these 2a flights per day, they will have to pay compensation and that will cost a lot of money. yes, airlines know that there is a huge demand now, but they are also having to look on the outside, what will be happening, what is the impact of the cost of living crisis going to have going forwards, so they are having to be very cautious about how many flights they put on and when they put them on and these half term periods, where lots of families will want to travel at the same time, on top of that, there is thejubilee, people going away for the four day weekend,

injanuary, because effectively and she had that taken away from her in january, because effectively she supported labour in a vote they held calling for a cut to vat on energy bills. the whip was taken away and that meant that she was not able to submit a letter of no confidence in borisjohnson because she no longer technically counted as a tory mp. she has nowjust been readmitted to the party. she counts again and she now says that she has been readmitted and she has resubmitted that letter and that takes us up to eight mps that we know about he have submitted letters since the two —— back at the sue gray report was published. taste back at the sue gray report was ublished. ~ ., back at the sue gray report was published-— back at the sue gray report was ublished. ~ ., ., ~ published. we no other mp said before that _ published. we no other mp said before that they _ published. we no other mp said before that they had _ published. we no other mp said before that they had submitted | before that they had submitted letters but the reality is, we do not actually know how many of the letter states submitted, how many other letters might have been submitted and dare i even suggest the idea, whether they might be some mps who have said they had submitted a letter but have not actually done it, we do not know and we never get

a mid—term government, we have been through a pandemic and facing a cost of living crisis, much of which is due to imported economic factors which the government to sign we are trying to do things to help people but there is a lot we simply cannot stop. you have got to balance those factors, but certainly the anger about party gait will be something that mps are looking at the by—elections and saying, you know, what is the public mood on this and is it suggesting to them that they need a new leaderfor is it suggesting to them that they need a new leader for the is it suggesting to them that they need a new leaderfor the next general election. just need a new leader for the next general election.— need a new leader for the next general election. just in terms of timin: , general election. just in terms of timing. the _ general election. just in terms of timing. the key _ general election. just in terms of timing, the key thing _ general election. just in terms of timing, the key thing here - general election. just in terms of timing, the key thing here is - general election. just in terms ofj timing, the key thing here is that there is no timetable, it could happen at any time, if enough letters were submitted. graham brady who is the chair _ letters were submitted. graham brady who is the chair of _ letters were submitted. graham brady who is the chair of the _ letters were submitted. graham brady who is the chair of the 1922 _ who is the chair of the 1922 committee, he receives the letters, he is the custodian and guardian of them and he said he will tell us as soon as that 5a letter mark is reached and the contest and the whole process of that will take

hardest target in our country. applause. and that's why, as part of a comprehensive school safety plan, it's time to finally allow highly trained teachers to safely and discreetly concealed carry. let them concealed carry. he was speaking at the annual meeting of the national rifle association. outside, protesters gathered, some in t—shirts spattered with red, calling for tighter gun control. i don't have a problem with anybody owning a gun, but i do believe that assault rifles were never meant for civilians. back in uvalde, officials have now acknowledged police made grave mistakes. officers wrongly thought the gunman had barricaded himself in. they took time to organise an operation. while children in other classrooms escaped, those under attack were calling emergency services,
whispering into their phones. the revelations have angered the state's governor. the information that i was given turned out, in part, to be inaccurate. i am absolutely livid about that. ruben heard shots and found out later his great granddaughter had been killed. where was the police that were supposed to be there to protect them kids? where was he? at first they said he was there, he confronted the shooter. and now they are retracting, and saying they are not. i've been watching tv all day, and i watch it at night, until 12 o'clock, wondering why, why, why? that's all i can tell you. on the national stage, the shootings amplified the gun—control debate. but for the families here, the prevailing emotions are shock and grief. sanchia berg, bbc news.
some breaking news coming out of south devon. a large fire, described as an extremely large fire, on—board as an extremely large fire, on—board a yacht off back the coast of turkey. we are told that five fire appliances are in attendance, it is beyond torquay marina, it will be visible for anyone on the seafront at torquay this afternoon, all the emergency services are there, five fire vehicles, there are fears for the safety of the vote moored in the marina and efforts will be under way to ensure the evacuation of anyone on board the vessels that are close by and also the vulnerability of the pier itself. i cannot say it is for definite, but i assume by now that the emergency services will have cleared as much as they can in terms of people. a lot of people put her around on their vessels at the marina at the weekend. this is a big
yacht, it we are is not a small vessel. obviously, with a lot of the small marinas, you cannot manoeuvre a very big vessels in, usually they will moor out a little way beyond the seafront and get a tag back in. i suspect we will probably be getting quite a lot of smoke along the seafront. we are going to try and get you some pictures. just to repeat, there is a fire on board a yacht off the coast of torquay, just beyond the marina in south devon. five emergency vehicles are in attendance until the emergency services are at the same. police, fire service and ambulances, no word of any casualties or injuries and
thatis of any casualties or injuries and that is precautionary, to have the ambulances in attendance. obviously ambulances in attendance. obviously a very busy time of the year, any weekend on the devon coast, i can assure you this time of the year is very busy, particularly in a place like torquay. many families will have arrived in the area this weekend for the half term break. we will bring you any eyewitness reaction or pictures, as soon as we get them. we will move on for now. russian forces are continuing to make gains in eastern ukraine. troops, together with moscow—backed militia units, are reported to have taken another key city in the donbas region. russia's forces say they have taken full control of lyman, close to severodonetsk, the easternmost place under ukraine control which is facing a sustained attack. from kyiv, joe inwood sent this report. the scars of war etched into the fields around lyman. this city has been the scene of fierce fighting for weeks. now, the russians say they have taken it. if true, that leaves
the route open to slavyansk, a key objective for president putin in his war. translation: if the occupiers think that lyman and severodonetsk will be theirs, they are wrong. donbas will be ukrainian. but this is the firepower they are up against. russian multiple launch rocket systems have been devastating in this war. ukraine's leaders say they need them, too. it's understood to be under active consideration by their allies, who say that despite their overwhelming firepower, russia is not having an easy time. they are facing and continue to face a stiff ukrainian resistance, which is why i won't go so far as to say it's too late to provide the ukrainians with any system or capability that they might need. but with each day that passes and each russian gain, the tide of this war seems to be turning against the ukrainians. they know that help is coming. the question is, will it be too late? joe inwood, bbc news, kyiv.
let me provide you with this breaking news, we have had some copy on site, a quote on twitter from devon and somerset fire and rescue services who said we currently have five appliances at torquay marina fighting a fire on an 85 that privately owned vessel, it is a large shot, these keep away from the area. advice from the emergency services, keep away from the seafront for safety, this is because of the risk that the fire appliances are obviously trying, they are fighting a fire on an 85 foot private vessel. we have some pictures from torquay that have just come in and the advice from the fire and rescue services is keep away from the area. if you are in the area, you will not have missed this, that smoke is blotting out the sun for many people enjoying a lovely summer weekend. that is a very
serious fire and they are obviously very concerned about the effects of that and about protecting people in the marina and also ensuring that people are not going to suffer the effects of smoke inhalation. so the fire and rescue services say that five appliances are at torquay marina fighting a fire on board an 85 foot private vessel. a lot of smoke coming out of that ship right now. let's get the latest on the monkeypox outbreak now. latin america has reported its first case. the world health organization says it expects the number of infections to continue to rise. argentina's health ministry says the confirmed case is a man who recently travelled to spain. about 200 monkeypox infections have now been detected in countries outside africa, where the disease is usually found. wendy urquhart reports. the latest laboratory to confirm a case of monkeypox outside of africa. reportedly a ao—year—old man who recently returned from spain to argentina where residents reacted to the news.
translation: where is this going? for example this pandemic, is it going to end or not? i think this is going to continue and they will come one after the other, all the time, unless we become more conscientious. i hope that it is not something that involves to be more and more complicated for our everyday life. of the 200 cases recorded recently, around half in the uk where the health security agency says monkeypox patients should avoid any contact with their pets for 21 days. virologists fear that the virus could get into domestic animals and ping—pong between them and humans. cases are also mounting in spain, one of over 20 countries where the disease has spread. but the message from the world health organization is that this can be controlled. we are afraid that there will be
spreading in community, but currently this is hard to assess as a risk, we think that if we put in place the right measures now, we probably can contain this easily. the who said a mass vaccination programme was not required. smallpox jabs could be given to close contacts of those affected. wendy urquhart, bbc news. the uefa champions league final will kick off in paris tonight. around 60,000 liverpool fans are expected to travel to the french capital to watch their team take on real madrid. the spanish team has won the competition 13 times and liverpool have won it six times, but with both teams at the top of their game, who will take home the trophy? joining me now from paris is our sports correspondent, olly foster.
