9:30 am
this is bbc world news. the headlines. the two russian men suspected of carrying out the salisbury nerve agent attack three years ago are being sought by police in the czech republic. a senior conservative mp warns borisjohnson he'll lose the support of the so—called red wall voters in former labour seats — unless he resolves the row about lobbying. a day of refelection for members of the royal family, after the queen and the nation bid farewell to the duke of edinburgh. china and the us commit to working together and with other countries on tackling climate change.
9:31 am
once the world's largest iceberg — but now its broken apart — satellite images show the "mega—berg" has virtually gone. time to catch up on the sport. jane dougall is at the bbc sport centre for us. good morning. we are starting with the fa cup. 4,000 fans will be inside wembley to watch the fa cup semi—final between leicester and southampton this evening as part of the latest government pilot event. the winner of that match knows that they will face chelsea in the final after they beat manchester city 1—0 yesterday. before kick—off, there was a minute's silence for prince philip, the duke of edinburgh asjoe wilson reports. wembley in sunshine and in silence for the duke of edinburgh.
9:32 am
two talented teams in good form competing to reach the fa cup final, dark blue of chelsea flowing until the finish. a manager who expected better. the second half again with kevin de bruyne in pain. the star in manchester city's galaxy, his match was over. and soon, chelsea were ahead, timo werner was quick, zack steffen in the city goal was drawn in and thus, the goal was open. commentator: hakim ziyech puts the ball in the back _ of the manchester city net! 1—0 could have been two almost immediately. this time, the goalkeeper was in the right place and hakim ziyech had the regrets. manchester city had their moments, belatedly, but in truth, not many. he has other competitions to consider, but the fa cup opportunity is now chelsea's as the season stretches
9:33 am
towards trophies. joe wilson, bbc news. newcastle are now nine points clear of the relegation places after a vital 3—2 win against west ham. but confirmation came yesterday that sheffield united are relegated, following their defeat to wolves last night. willianjose scored the only goal at molineux to send them down with six games to spare. it's the end of their two—season stay in the top flight, they finished ninth last season, but have only won four games so far this campaign. the only thing we can control is the last six games and it's how we go out that's important now. how we go out, what we try and do in order to get things in place for next season which will be going on behind the scenes. it has been an inevitability about it and everyone has been
9:34 am
waiting for it to happen. it's how we deal with it that's the most important thing. so, sheffield united go down to the championship, but coming up to the premier league next season is norwich city. they lost to 3—1 bournemouth last night, but automatic promotion had already been confirmed because of results earlier in the day. premiership winners rangers face scottish cup holders celtic this afternoon in the fourth round of the competition. aberdeen are already through to the quarter finals after a penalty shoot out win over livingston. ross mccrorie scoring the decisive penalty after the match had finished 2—2 after extra time. not a bad first game in charge for new aberdeen manager stephen glass. world champion lewis hamilton will hope to make it two wins from two this season as he starts from pole for this afternoon's emilia romagna grand prix. the mercedes driver took top spot in qualifying by a whisker at imola, the 99th pole position of his career. just behind are the red bulls of sergio perez and max verstappen,
9:35 am
with hamilton's team—mate valterri bottas down in eighth. it's great, finally we've got the two red bulls there, it's going to make strategy harder. they've got great race pace. i think their pace was a bit stronger than ours. but i'm so happy. he was knocked out in the semi—finals of the monte carlo masters — having beaten world number one novak djokovic earlier in the week — but dan evans still has a chance of silverware in the principality today. he's chasing a first career doubles title — alongside fellow brit neal skupski. yesterday's win in the last four means evans has knocked out the top seeds in both singles and doubles this week. the women's six nations final has been decided after france comfortably beat ireland to seal their place in the match against england next week. france — who're ranked fourth in the world — finished top of their pool and ran riot over the irish defence,
9:36 am
with cyrielle banet scoring two tries as they won by 56 points to 15. and ireland will face italy in a game for third place after they beat scotland in glasgow by 41 points to 20. defending champion ronnie 0'sullivan is through to the second round of the world snooker championship. a reduced crowd watched on at the crucible theatre in sheffield as part of the government pilot scheme to reintroduce spectators. 0'sullivan beat debutant markjoyce ten frames to four, having struggled for large parts of the match, before finishing strongly. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, the papers.
9:37 am
come to our look at today's sunday papers. —— welcome. with me are russell myers, the daily mirror's royal editor and catherine wylie, news reporter at pa. catherine was inside st george's chapel just a few years ago for the wedding of the duke and duchess of sussex. let's take a look at some of today's front pages, starting with... the sunday express has this image of the queen — used by many of the papers — sat alone during prince philip's funeral. a slightly different angle on the sunday telegraph, which reflects on what it calls a "heart—breakingly beautiful day". for the sunday mirror, it's the "loneliest goodbye". the sunday times has a front and back page wrap. 0n the front is this photo from outside st george's chapel. and on the back, this image of the duke of edinburgh's coffin being carried inside, with his family following behind. there's a close up shot of the queen
9:38 am
on the front of the mail on sunday — which also has an image of william and harry. a picture of the queen heading into the chapel dominates the front of the sunday people. and the observer carries an image of her majesty. the paper also reports on warnings from a senior tory mp to borisjohnson that he'll lose support from red wall voters, if he fails to deal with lobbying scandals. so, let's begin. let's start to festival with the sunday mirror's coverage and it is that image of the queen sitting alone. that might be the abiding image of the funeral and of this day. image of the funeral and of this da . . , . , image of the funeral and of this da . . , ., , , ., , image of the funeral and of this da. . , day. certainly, as you rightly say, it is the enduring _ day. certainly, as you rightly say, it is the enduring image - day. certainly, as you rightly say, it is the enduring image of- day. certainly, as you rightly say, it is the enduring image of an - it is the enduring image of an extraordinary event. it features on
9:39 am
a number of different pages today and in the inside coverage you'll see a time and time again. i think it will be an iconic image we will be talking about for a long time, symbolising the queen on her own, she's lost her consort of 73 years but also an indication of the service ravaged by the coronavirus crisis, like many thousands of other families across the country and across the world who have had their plans appended saying goodbye to their loved ones. the queen had to have a reduced congregationalist of just 30 and sitting alone in the chapel, cut a very sad and dejected figure —— a reduced congregation. it is a big space and she looked very alone therejust sitting is a big space and she looked very alone there just sitting there. it is a huge chapel and would usually

9:42 am
doubt the duke would have been in favour of, perhaps lended itself to the intricacies of the duke's wishes being carried out. the music was incredibly inspiring, the steering themes of the bugle players and little parts like the land rover and the military bands. all of those things can be explained in these commentary pieces and they are worth a read today. commentary pieces and they are worth a read today-— a read today. let's have a look inside the _ a read today. let's have a look inside the sunday _ a read today. let's have a look inside the sunday telegraph. | a read today. let's have a look. inside the sunday telegraph. we talked about the queen's loneliness but it also focuses on how her trusted lady in waiting chosen by the queen for her darkest day and there is a piece here all about lady susan hussey. this is quite an interesting angle. i susan hussey. this is quite an interesting angle.— susan hussey. this is quite an interesting angle. i think a lot of --eole interesting angle. i think a lot of peeple were _ interesting angle. i think a lot of peeple were glad _ interesting angle. i think a lot of people were glad to _ interesting angle. i think a lot of people were glad to see - interesting angle. i think a lot of people were glad to see the - interesting angle. i think a lot of i people were glad to see the queen wasn't _ people were glad to see the queen wasn't alone in the state bentley as

9:45 am
be done. the queen and the duke of edinburgh had been planning this for many decades. the land rover started off as a joke when the duke is said to the queen, chuck me in the back of a land rover and be done with it. little pieces like that gave you a sense of his humour that he had right to the end and his love of engineering as well. he was integral in the designing and conception of it over the past 16 years and it added to the ceremony yesterday. that land rover features added to the ceremony yesterday. that land roverfeatures inside added to the ceremony yesterday. that land rover features inside the sunday telegraph. i didn't realise actually that it had started as a jake. that is an interesting little piece of information —— it started as a joke. that says a lot about the character of the duke of edinburgh that he would want his coffin to be

9:48 am
after the funeral as they gathered to waive the queen could buy, you saw prince harry saddle up behind kate and they seemed to exchange pleasantries as they walked back towards windsor castle. then kate peeled off and hung back to allow harry and william to talk. this is the first time harry will have seen his family in more than a year since quitting his royal role with his wife meghan and setting up pain in the us. for a lot of them the first time harry would have spoken to them since the interview with 0prah since the interview with oprah winfrey —— setting up home in the united states. perhaps this could be a thawing of relations and no doubt the queen and the royal family would welcome that considerably.— welcome that considerably. although he had been here _ welcome that considerably. although he had been here for— welcome that considerably. although he had been here for a _ welcome that considerably. although he had been here for a number- welcome that considerably. although

9:50 am
which is synonymous with a naval war cry. the family have had quite a lot of controversy and things to deal with of late so perhaps it is his final wish of being carried three that everyone gets back to the business in hand and stop squabbling. business in hand and stop squabbling-— business in hand and stop saauabblin. , _ ., , , squabbling. yes, let bygones be b ones. squabbling. yes, let bygones be bygones- the — squabbling. yes, let bygones be bygones. the sunday _ squabbling. yes, let bygones be bygones. the sunday times - squabbling. yes, let bygones be bygones. the sunday times has| squabbling. yes, let bygones be - bygones. the sunday times has the same story, peacemaker kate helping to put the princes that on a united front for grandpa. i suppose there is a danger of reading too much into a few seconds of footage of kate breaking the ice between them. yes. breaking the ice between them. yes, well, we talked _ breaking the ice between them. yes, well, we talked only _ breaking the ice between them. yes, well, we talked only about that image — well, we talked only about that image of— well, we talked only about that image of the queen sitting alone, being _ image of the queen sitting alone, being very— image of the queen sitting alone, being very much the image of the day but i being very much the image of the day but i think— being very much the image of the day but i think the image of the family leading _ but i think the image of the family leading the chapel and seeing wittiam — leading the chapel and seeing william and harry comes a close second — william and harry comes a close second i— william and harry comes a close second. i think readers of the papers — second. i think readers of the papers today will feel glad and see that out— papers today will feel glad and see that out of this sad and sombre day, perhaps— that out of this sad and sombre day, perhaps some good has come from it

9:55 am
sunday papers, mainly reflecting on the funeral of the duke of edinburgh but also that tribute to helen mccrory. thank you very much. that's it for the papers this morning. thank you to russell myers and catherine wylie. goodbye. hello. there's a lot of dry weather in the forecast not only for the rest of the day but also through the week ahead. we started off in england and wales on a chilly note, but with some beautiful spring sunshine and it's quite pleasant out there now. it does look as though the beginning of this week will be a bit warmer than last week because of the wind direction, but the wind changes once again. noticeably cooler from midweek and that means we could see a return to more significant night—time frosts. there is some rain around, that said, as you can see across parts of western scotland, out of northern ireland into the isle of man.
9:56 am
that is just bringing more cloud into western fringes of wales and south west england as well. but for the remainder of the day, the further east you go, dry, settled and sunny with a light breeze and temperatures will respond. we could see into the middle of the afternoon highs of 16. a bit cooler into the far north under the cloud, a bit more of a breeze here and staying quite murky to higher ground. that weather front will retreat a little bit further north and west overnight, but it's still sitting out in the atlantic. it's still going to continue to bring quite a lot of cloud into the far north—west. here it will stay mild through the night. we can draw in more low cloud and fog through the vale of york down into lincolnshire perhaps, and into north norfolk as well. not as cold a start as previous mornings. we'll keep those temperatures perhaps up just above freezing. so, on monday, a largely dry story to begin with. that fog will burn back to the north sea, a good deal of sunshine coming through. cloudy with light patchy rain
9:57 am
into the western isles and maybe to the west of northern ireland, here a bit of a nuisance, but in terms of the feel of things, maybe 17 an expected high. it looks likely, as we move out of monday into tuesday, that this area of high pressure is going to build in in from the atlantic and drift steadily eastwards. that will push and weaken the weather front considerably, but more importantly it means a change of wind direction. more of a northerly flow, which will drag the slightly cooler air across the country, and that will mean a change to the feel of the weather. particularly on those exposed east coasts, cooler with the breeze coming in off the sea. take care.
