6:30 pm
just into the high teens in the very warmest spots. as we take a look at the picture into tuesday, it is going to feel much cooler and fresher, because notice the winds now switching round to a northerly. a lot of dry weather around, but building cloud will bring the chance of catching one or two showers out there, and for many of us, temperatures will actually be a bit below average for the time of year. so we are entering a spell of cooler, more unsettled weather to come, for the rest of the weekend. temperatures gradually coming down, the breeze starts to pick up, some rain around, maybe not as much as you'd like though in the gardens across southern most parts of the uk. this is how it looks all the way into next weekend, and by next weekend, it looks like high pressure is building in from the south, as it starts to turn warmer once again.

6:34 pm
2—1 to win the scottish cup and complete the treble treble. 0dsonne edouard scored both celtic goals. it's the third season running they won all three domestic trophies. with more on their unprecedented achievement, here's chris mclaughlin: for 134th scottish cup final come for celtic, three was the magic number. they were looking for their third successive treble. it wasn't a great game to be honest, the first half was pretty much like the glascow weather, all a little bit dull. they soaked up what celtic could offer, despite this edward chance, the champions offered up very little. it wasn't great all around, actually, this hurts chance sort of summed it up just before half—time. but shortly after the break, the goal the game was crying out for, first blood to the underdogs. but their lead didn't last long, celtic pushed, hard's
6:35 pm
tired, and a penalty was given. edward leffler, providing relief for those in green and white. all a little bit stodgy again until ten minutes before the end, with history in their sites, edward once again, made hampden roar. these fans came along here hoping to see something, something special. and once again, celtic delivered. it wasn't their best performance, these fans won't ca re best performance, these fans won't care about that, because their side have made world football history. the treble treble is theirs. chris mcglocklin, bbc news, hampden park. yelm are probably the best i've ever felt in this club, you will never see this again. it's all about them, i had to whip them a bit at half—time, because we didn't start off the first half. and then, the score, we will come again, but we needed hearts to score before we
6:36 pm
really got our energy levels up, and oui’ urgency, really got our energy levels up, and our urgency, and then the response was brilliant. i told you before the game, the hearts wouldn't let us go off hazy, and as a very big fan, in terms of pressure, emotion, well, they've done it. it shows you the lads relentlessness. in 90 minutes, we are 1—0 down, we believe we are going to win the game to matter what happens, they could throw the kitchen sink at us, and yet again, we held out, we defended well, and we held out, we defended well, and we finished with what we needed. for us, that's phenomenal, for the fans, it's unbelievable, and we had our perfect season. we've done the treble yet again. and we aim not to push on next season. we frustrated celtic for long periods, and we had possession, but you know, we were are playing against against a good side, and we did lose momentum and moments of concentration, in the match, i could come to mind one hand, we lost a couple of goals, and
6:37 pm
that ultimately is what cost us. having guided that trophy, the club has announced that the manager has been offered the job on a permanent basis. since returning in february, lennon has won the scottish premiership, as well as today's scottish cup final. england's women won their penultimate warm—up match ahead of next month's world cup, beating denmark 2—nil in walsall. it was a less than convincing england performance but goals from each half from nikita parris and jill scott proved to be enough, asjoe lynskey reports. in a fortnight‘s time, england's women swap the west midlands for the south of france, the world cup now is coming into view. and these are the final lessons before the summers main exam. denmark haven't qualified this time, but two years ago, they were second out the euros. although this was a friendly england were having to quickly adjust, after that block from jade moore, next denmark
6:38 pm
was stopped by a referee's decision. this finish was ruled out for handball, but next month, when dar checks up, it might be different. in times like this, england need their star quality, and in france, that may often come from paris. nikita paris has just been voted the rightist player of the year, these are the moments she can muster to change an underwhelming first half. and soon from being up against it, england found control. lead with the cross, and a terrific second half or england, again, it's someone on the play, but it was beautifully created! that goal number two would see england through to the finish, but this was a day when denmark were unlucky, on the home side toiled. at the stage, this close to the finals, they know there is work to do. ijust want to do the basics well, pass the ball to each other, it's a bit sloppy at times, sloppy, slow, i was bored watching in the first
6:39 pm
half, and i don't want the supporters to feel that way. i want to play with a better temple, we have to play through the elements, my players were shattered, i've got to say, we have worked so hard, but there are still massive improvements to go. england have one more home farewell to come next weekend, but it's performances go, they hope the world cup looks very different from warsaw, joe linsky, bbc news. a days before their term and opener against scotland and nice. you might gabby logan has been getting the thoughts of casey stony. blue max of the lionesses played their warm—up match for the word up cup today at the banks he stayed in in denmark, it was a 2— no win, but alex, there was still much that he will need to improve in the next seven days when they play their final warm—up match against new zealand. the omega, the need to be better in possession at times, i think of the first half, they gave the ball away, and really dangerous areas, and you can do that
6:40 pm
in world cup, you will be punished. so there are lessons there, but overall, they manage to even though not having the performance, you've got the win. and that's a sign of a good team. casey obviously made a few changes, perhaps expecting some really senior experienced players, not in that line—up. do you think he knows who is best? is he still working it out? i would say he's got eight to nine and that team. i would like to think that you know, he will now probably new zealand game might test that out and see if that's going to be a start against scotland, he will have a good idea, like you say, i think england missed those senior players today, those abilities to keep the ball under pressure, you know, i think they will need that against, obviously new zealand, and the world cup. what kind of chance will new zealand be for them? i think physical, england have matched up well in the past against them, getting those winds, but going into a world cup, it's about performances. i want to see better linkup play, because we saw that in the second goal for mingled today. when you have those patterns of
6:41 pm
play, england looked very dangerous, wa nt play, england looked very dangerous, want to see more about against new zealand. of course in the 12 days that we have to the start of this tournament, the height will build and build commits for those younger less experienced players, coping with that, with their first expense ofa with that, with their first expense of a big tournament. absolutely, i think phil being, will help that, though senior hats are going to be so in vital, so important, those players have been to that tournament, keeping them focused on the game and on the pitch. ignoring all the distractions that are going to be around you at the world cup. you can see that new zealand game the final match 12115, bbc one, next saturday. tranmere will be playing in league one next season after snatching a dramatic late winner in the league two play—off final against newport at wembley. after a goal—less 90 minutes the game appeared to be heading for penalties until connorjennings struck with less than two minutes of extra—time remaining to clinch back—to—back promotions for tranmere. england have lost their world cup warm up match with australia by 12 runs. in a tight game at the hampshire
6:42 pm
bowls in southampson. england won the toss, asked australia to bat but then failed to chase down a victory target of 298. it was the first game australians steve smith and david warner have played in england since their ban over ball—tampering last year.patrick gearey reports. 0n on one hand, this was a friendly, and the other, it was australia. a chance to welcome back david warner. an old friend. hard to take it hazy, but no time for risk so close to a world cup. mark wood felt a twinge, so world cup. mark wood felt a twinge, so off he went for a scan, safety first. another way warner tends to bat, and his first match against england from his ball tampering then, he made 43, and the locals reminded him where he was. he will have to get used to that, as will steve smith, also booed back from his band, batting like he'd never been away. they jeered his band, batting like he'd never been away. theyjeered him to a century, in england, ones weren't enough. pantomime over, england on
6:43 pm
stage, 298 to win, and with just butler battling australia repeatedly found, its behind. england's captain for the day smashed 50, then suddenly, strangely, he was gone. and so was his sides momentum, they lost wickets and with it, their nerve. england ran out of road and the final over, warm—up match turned wake—up call. the final over, warm—up match turned wa ke—up call. patrick the final over, warm—up match turned wake—up call. patrick erie, bbc news will still with cricket somerset beat defending champions hampshire by six wickets to claim the 0ne—day cup at lord's. they were chasing down a target of 245 to win their first 50—over title for nearly 20 years. with the details, michael redford reports. defending the one—day cup is not hazy, it's been ten years since a cou nty hazy, it's been ten years since a county achieved it. hampshire had plans to change that record. they chose to bat for against somerset at lourdes, the right decision, four early wickets suggested not. they needed to dig in. captain sam northeast led from the front reaching 50 from 85 balls. he was gone for 56 though, in hampshire hope of victory surely gone with it,
6:44 pm
not quite. step forward james fuller, he scored his first one—day 50 to help hampshire reach 244 from their 50 overs. was there hope after all. not if tom benton had anything to do with it. he scored 69 in an opening stand of 112, with as a rally. they needed wickets quickly, they got four, three of them from fidel edwards. but in an unbeaten half—ce ntu ry fidel edwards. but in an unbeaten half—century from james hildreth guided somerset to a six wickets win, and theirfirst triumph in a one—day cup and almost 20 years. ten times runners up in domestic competitions, now it somerset‘s turned to celebrate. michael ra dford, turned to celebrate. michael radford, bbc news. lewis hamilton said he had to ‘take his car to the limit‘ to claim pole position for the monaco grand prix — getting the better of mercedes team—mate valterri bottas byjust 800ths of a second. hamilton took pole with his final qualifying lap but the story of the day was another strategic failure by ferrari. trackside for us in monte carlo isjenny gow. well it's turned into a beautiful
6:45 pm
day here in the monaco, certainly for mercedes, they have managed another 1—2 and qualifying, but for ferrari, what could have been, turned into a pretty disastrous day. nick parrot reports. 0n the tight and twisty streets of monaco, ferrari were hoping to turn a corner. their young driver went quickest and final practise, and held the backing of royalty in his hometown. but knowing the place like the back of his hand didn't stop him or his team from making mistakes. theirs was deciding not to send him out for a final lap in the first session of qualifying. as he tumbled down the leaderboa rd, team—mate sebastian was also struggling to make it through. the german took his last chance, but that knocked leclair out, condemning him to start from 16th. today we really only got one driver, they need to understand how, how to make these decisions better. world champion, lewis hamilton, said driving it was like wrestling a
6:46 pm
ball. but he held on to break the track record, and claim pole for the first time since the opening race of the season. that's it i'm talking bout! yes! just the desire and the will to get this poll, it means so much to me, i had to dig deeper than ever, and i'm so glad i got to get that deep, and i'm just really grateful, as i said, to my team, and it was beautiful. i feel amazing. on a circuit where it's difficult to overtake, he will be favoured to beat his team—mate, valerie bottas, for a second race in a row. so lewis hamilton beside himself with joy at getting pole position. so important around a track like monaco, but in short, it was shar leclair, the young for ari driver, who wanted answers from his team. how could they let him just sit there in the garage watching his time, as others went faster and faster. he will start the race in 16th position, and on almighty task
