    Media captionLegendary captain Bobby Moore was arguably England's most-creative playerTwo of the men who ensured World Cup glory for England's football team 50 years ago are set to take centre stage at Wembley Stadium for a special commemoration of the historic win.Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Geoff Hurst will recount their memories of the 1966 win to an audience of 10,000 people.Actor Martin Freeman will read memories from the late captain Sir Bobby Moore.The event, which will also feature live music, will be simulcast on BBC Radio 2, 5 live and in some English cinemas.The day will also see songs from 1966 rearranged and performed by the likes of James, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Squeeze, Reef, Lemar and the Troggs.
   
       
Chris Farlowe will give a one-off performance of his 1966 number one hit Out of Time - which was number one in the charts on the day England won.There will also be an opportunity for fans to reflect and speak about their memories of the day Alf Ramsey's England side defeated West Germany 4-2 in extra time.
           
    Media captionRadio commentary of England's 1966 victory has been found 50 years onIt was a day when the names of Banks, Cohen, Wilson, Charlton J, Moore, Ball, Stiles, Peters, Charlton R, Hunt and Hurst earned their place in football history.                                                                                                    Bobby Moore and Alan Ball have since died, in 1993 and 2007 respectively. A bronze statue of Moore stands outside Wembley Stadium and is likely to be visited by many of fans attending the commemoration at the nearby arena.1966 World Cup: England's tournament behind the scenesHow Africa boycotted the 1966 World CupSir Geoff Hurst's 1966 England World Cup final shirt goes unsoldAnother bronze statue of Moore being carried by team-mates Hurst, Martin Peters and Ray Wilson, is located near the Boleyn Ground, in Newham, east London. The stadium was until recently the home of West Ham United - the club that proudly claims it "won the World Cup for England" because of the involvement of three of their players.Commentator Barry Davies told BBC 5 live that "it was in extra time that England played like true world champions" and he described the game as a "classic".However, Mr Davies said he believed the best England team to ever vie for the World Cup was actually the team in 1970, which sought to defend England's win but only got as far as the quarter finals. The Wembley Arena event will be aired on BBC Radio 2 and 5 live from 14:50 BST.Then later on ITV there is a documentary entitled, 1966 - A Nation Remembers, which will retell the famous win through the eyes of fans around the country.

                    Mr Trump's remarks about Khizr Khan's wife have caused controversy
               
            Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump drew outrage from Republicans and Democrats by mocking a dead Muslim soldier's mother who stood silently as her husband attacked him in a speech.Mr Trump suggested Ghazala Khan may not have been allowed to speak.Senior politicians said this was no way to talk about the mother of a hero.In an impassioned speech at last week's Democratic National Convention, Khizr Khan said Mr Trump had sacrificed "nothing and no-one" for his country.His son Humayun Khan was killed by a car bomb in 2004 in Iraq at the age of 27.
   
       

           
    Media captionKhizr Khan: "You have sacrificed nothing - and no one!"Mr Trump responded to the criticism in an interview with ABC's This Week. "If you look at his wife, she was standing there," he said, "She had nothing to say... Maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me."But former president Bill Clinton, the husband of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, said: "I cannot conceive how he can say that about a Gold Star mother."                                                                                                    Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine said Mr Trump's remarks were inappropriate."He was kind of trying to turn that into some kind of ridicule," he said, quoted by AP. "It just demonstrates again kind of a temperamental unfitness. If you don't have any more sense of empathy than that, then I'm not sure you can learn it."Some Republicans also rounded on their candidate.Ohio Governor John Kasich, a former rival to Mr Trump for the Republican nomination, tweeted: "There's only one way to talk about Gold Star parents: with honour and respect."Khizr Khan said in an interview on Saturday that Mr Trump was "devoid of feeling the pain of a mother who has sacrificed her son", the New York Times reported.Ghazala Khan said on Friday that she did not speak during her husband's speech to the Democratic National Convention because she was still overcome with grief and could not look at her son's photos without crying.

        Mr Trump's campaign issued a statement on Saturday in which he praised Mr Khan's son Humayun."Captain Humayun Khan was a hero to our country and we should honour all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country safe," he said. "The real problem here are the radical Islamic terrorists who killed him, and the efforts of these radicals to enter our country to do us further harm."But Mr Trump rejected Mr Khan's criticism."While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr Khan, who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false) and say many other inaccurate things," he said.'Tremendous success'In the ABC interview to be broadcast on Sunday, a transcript of which was released by the Trump campaign, Mr Trump was asked what sacrifices he had made."I work very, very hard. I've created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures," he said. "...I've had tremendous success. I think I've done a lot."The remarks prompted ridicule on Twitter under the hashtag #TrumpSacrifices, with users listing such hardships as flying commercial class and playing on a municipal golf course.Khizr Khan, 65, told the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Thursday that his son had sacrificed his life to save those of his fellow soldiers.If it had been up to Mr Trump, he said, his son would not have been in America.Mr Khan asked if Mr Trump had "even read the United States Constitution", and offered to lend him his copy.

                    One of the arrested men was identified as Captain Mustafa Serdar Ozay
               
            Turkey says it has captured all but one of the soldiers who are accused of trying to seize the president during the failed coup.Special forces arrested another 11 soldiers overnight after a two-week manhunt near Marmaris.Recep Tayyip Erdogan was on holiday at the south-western resort on the night of the coup, but fled before his hotel was raided.Special forces located the fugitives in a forested area, reports say.Since the failed putsch Mr Erdogan has cracked down on those suspected of being linked to the coup.
   
       
Tens of thousands of people have been detained or dismissed or suspended from roles in the military, judiciary, civil service and education.What you need to know about failed coup
'What's happening to our country?'
Who was behind coup attempt?
Why did Turkish coup plot fail?
Over the weekend Mr Erdogan announced a sweeping reform of Turkey's armed forces to bring them under full civilian control.Turkish authorities accuse US-based preacher Fethullah Gulen of being behind the coup attempt, something he denies.                                                                                                    The rebel soldiers were spotted by villagers hunting boar in the forested area near Marmaris. Gunfire was exchanged during the operation but no casualties were reported.

                    President Erdogan spoke to CNN Turk via Facetime on the night of the coup attempt
               
            The soldiers arrested in total overnight on Sunday and Monday morning include Major Sukru Seymen, the alleged commander, according to Anadolu news agency. More than 20 other members of the military squad suspected of involvement had already been remanded in custody to face trial, the agency reports.During the coup attempt on 15 July Mr Erdogan spoke live on TV via his mobile phone. He said he had narrowly escaped an attempt on his life.According to official reports the president's security team was tipped off that a squad of soldiers was heading to his hotel and moved him.Turkey has summoned Germany's charge d'affaires to the foreign ministry in Ankara to explain why President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was prevented from addressing a rally in Cologne via a video-link on Sunday. At least 30,000 rallied in the German city in support of the Turkish president.The German authorities said such messages could stoke political tensions among the three million ethnic Turks living in Germany.
           
    Media captionThe women regarded as heroes after Turkey's failed coup attemptTurkey's interior minister said on Friday that more than 18,000 people had been detained over the failed coup. More than 9,000 of them have been formally arrested.Nearly 50,000 Turkish citizens have had their passports cancelled, Efkan Ala told state TV.Analysis by Jonathan Head, BBC News, IstanbulThe sweeping reforms of the armed forces announced by President Erdogan could put the military under full civilian control for the first time in the country's modern history, with the aim of preventing future coup attempts. However dealing with the movement the government blames for instigating the coup will be a more complex task. Millions of Turks are believed to be followers of the exiled Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, many of them successful and influential. More than 60,000 have already been dismissed from state employment; more than 3,000 military officers with suspected links to the preacher have also been sacked. But eliminating them from other areas like business would require a purge on a massive scale, something Turkey's fragile economy may not be able to sustain.

                    Ms Chakrabarti led the campaign group Liberty for 13 years
               
            Labour's deputy leader has said it was a "mistake" for the party to nominate Shami Chakrabarti for a peerage as part of David Cameron's resignation honours.Mr Watson, who had called for Labour to boycott the process, told the BBC he had not been consulted about the move. He praised Ms Chakrabarti as "precisely the sort of person" who should be a peer, but said the timing was wrong.Some Jewish groups have questioned her peerage, so soon after she chaired an inquiry into anti-Semitism in Labour.The former director of civil liberties group Liberty chaired an independent inquiry into anti-Semitism in the party earlier this summer whose conclusion that Labour was not "overrun" by anti-Semitism was contested by some at the time.
   
       

           
    Media captionDeputy Labour leader Tom Watson says the Chakrabarti peerage call is a mistakeChief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said her report's credibility now "lies in tatters" after she accepted the peerage.But spokesman for Mr Corbyn, who has called for wholesale reform of the Lords, said her "legal and campaigning skills" would make her a real asset there while Ms Chakrabarti said it was an "opportunity to help hold the government to account".Who is Shami ChakrabartiCalled to the bar in 1994
Associate Tenant at 39 Essex Chambers
Worked for the Home Office Legal Adviser's Branch between 1996 and 2001
Director of Liberty between 2003 and 2015
Awarded a CBE in 2007
One of Olympic flag bearers at London 2012 Games
Served on the Leveson Inquiry into phone hacking
Chancellor of University of Essex
Those given peerages are entitled to sit in the Lords for life. Before they can take up their seats, they must be approved by the House of Lords Appointments Commission. Opposition leaders have the opportunity to nominate peers on several occasions, including at the end of each Parliament in what is known as the dissolution honours list but also when a prime minister leaves office.  Ms Chakrabarti was Mr Corbyn's only nomination as part of David Cameron's resignation list - which also saw peerages for 13 Conservatives and two civil servants.'Chamber of people'Mr Watson said he was unaware Labour was putting anyone forward and while the "highly regarded human rights lawyer" Ms Chakrabarti was more than qualified to be in the Lords, Labour should boycott rather than legitimise a process in which awards were in the gift of a departing prime minister."The timing is not great for the Labour Party," he  told Radio 4's Today."I do think it's a mistake because I don't agree with resignation honours. I think Labour should be very clear that this is a discretionary power that should be removed from outgoing prime ministers."I don't want laws to be made in the chamber of David Cameron's friends. "I want it to be made in the chamber of people who have served their country with unprecedented distinction."

                    Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said the credibility of Ms Chakrabarti's report "lies in tatters"
               
            Earlier this year, Ms Chakrabarti was appointed to lead an independent inquiry into claims of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party following the suspension of MP Naz Shah and ex-London mayor Ken Livingstone.The review found there was evidence of "ignorant attitudes" but said the "Labour Party is not overrun by anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, or other forms of racism".In a statement posted on Twitter, the Chief Rabbi said: "Shami Chakrabarti has a proud record of public service, but in accepting this peerage, the credibility of her report lies in tatters and the Labour Party's stated intention, to unequivocally tackle anti-Semitism, remains woefully unrealised."

                    The new appointments mean the Conservatives will have more working peers than Labour
               
            Marie van der Zyl, of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said it was "beyond disappointing" that she had been offered a peerage by Labour "following her so-called independent inquiry".And a statement from the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism said: "If anybody still took Shami Chakrabarti's report on anti-Semitism in the Labour Party or Jeremy Corbyn's declared opposition to anti-Semitism seriously, this must be the final straw."But a spokesman for Mr Corbyn said: "Shami Chakrabarti shares Jeremy's ambition for reform of the House of Lords."Her career has been one of public service and human rights advocacy.And Ms Chakrabarti added: "This is a dangerous moment for our country and we share vital human rights values that need defending more than ever before in my lifetime."'Not a reward'Several Conservative MPs have expressed reservations about the list of new peers, as well as some of the 46 other people nominated for various honours, among them former Downing Street staff, Conservative donors and Remain campaign officials.Tim Loughton tweeted: "To have your resignation honours list leaked is unfortunate. "To go ahead with it after such a public outcry about cronyism, chumocracy and bringing whole honours system into disrepute stinks, not least for those on list who actually deserve to be and previous worthy recipients."But a former leader of the House of Lords has defended the process, saying an unprecedented number of Conservative members of the unelected chamber had retired since 2010, including 13 in the past year, and needed to be replaced. "150 peers departed since 2010 (43 Tories). Highest rate of exits since hereditary 'cull' because possible for peers to retire," Baroness Stowell tweeted.She added: "It is a privileged opportunity to do, not a reward for having done. Look forward to welcoming new colleagues".The new appointments mean the Conservatives will have one more life peer than Labour - 207 to 206 - but are still well short of an overall majority, partly due to the large number of crossbench members.

    Media captionOfsted's David Hoare comments - Courtesy Times Educational SupplementOfsted chairman David Hoare went "over the top" when he called the Isle of Wight a "ghetto" but should not resign, Sir Michael Wilshaw says. Ofsted's chief inspector of schools told BBC Radio 4's Today programme Mr Hoare had been "a good chair".Mr Hoare has apologised for his comments about the island, in which he also said "there has been inbreeding".He said he had been trying to highlight the unacceptably poor performance of schools on the island over many years.His comments, made at a recent teaching conference and highlighted in the Times Educational Supplement, prompted a call for him to resign. He has apologised for any upset or offence he may have caused.
   
       
Sir Michael said: "He's handled the board well and he's passionate about raising standards."On this occasion he used inappropriate language and he's apologised profusely for that because he's offended people in the Isle of Wight, and he should have done that."'Low standards'Sir Michael added that while Mr Hoare's words had been "inappropriate", he was raising an important issue.                                                                                                    "He has drawn everyone's attention to the problems of areas like the Isle of Wight and coastal resorts. We undertook a focused inspection of the Isle of Wight four years ago and found standards to be terribly, pitifully low."The reason why London and other big cities are doing well is because they've got good heads and they've got good teachers and people are attracted to those areas."It's much more difficult to attract staff to areas which are less popular and where the challenges are that much greater."

                    Sir Michael Wilshaw says David Hoare should not have to resign over his 'ghetto' comments
               
            'Insulted residents'Mr Hoare, who has a home on the mainland near the island, said education on the Isle of Wight was often a topic of conversation with his dinner party guests."They think of it as holiday land. But it is shocking," he said. "It's a ghetto; there has been inbreeding."Seven state schools were all less than good. There is a mass of crime, drug problems, huge unemployment."Ofsted said the chairman had been expressing his personal views and they did not reflect those of the inspectorate or its chief inspector.But Isle of Wight council leader Jonathan Bacon said he would contact Education Secretary Justine Greening to seek an explanation from Mr Hoare for his comments.He said: "David Hoare's comments about 'inbreeding' and 'ghettos' on the Isle of Wight are truly offensive to the people of the Isle of Wight and bear no relation to the facts."And Ms Lowthion, who is a teacher on the island, said: "'I am absolutely appalled that the chairman of Ofsted thinks it helpful, truthful or professional to describe our families and young people in that way. "I think it reflects more on himself than it does on our hard-working teachers and schools.
           
    Media captionConservative councillor Chris Whitehouse: 'I bet David Hoare can't produce any evidence of inbreeding affecting education anywhere'"It is well-known that coastal towns need investment and support to improve education standards and participation. "He has insulted residents of coastal towns across the country and should resign." Following the outcry, Mr Hoare said: "My intention was to highlight how concerned I am about the unacceptably poor performance of schools on the Isle of Wight over many years and how this is damaging the prospects of young people who live on the island. "Those who know me will realise that I am passionate about improving outcomes for children from our most disadvantaged communities and my comments were made in this context."

        Residents affected by fracking could be paid a proportion of the proceeds of shale gas projects, the government has suggested.A shale wealth fund was unveiled in 2014 to set aside up to 10% of the tax proceeds from fracking to benefit communities in the UK hosting wells.The PM is now considering paying the money directly to individual households instead of councils and local trusts.The plan is one option due to be outlined in a consultation on Monday. What is fracking and why is it controversial?
Fracking go-ahead: What happens next?
It is expected the new fund could deliver as much as £10m to each community that has wells sited.
   
       
BBC business correspondent Theo Leggett said the government had not placed a figure on the amount potentially available to individual households, but said it was understood to be up to £10,000 each.'Ordinary families'The shale wealth fund was established by ex-chancellor George Osborne to allow a percentage of the proceeds from fracking to be given to councils or community trusts to spend.However, speaking ahead of the launch of a consultation on the fund, Theresa May said she wanted to make sure that individuals benefitted personally from the government's economic decisions.                                                                                                    She said the government wanted to help "ordinary families for whom life is harder than many people in politics realise"."This announcement is an example of putting those principles into action," the prime minister added."It's about making sure people personally benefit from economic decisions that are taken - not just councils - and putting them back in control over their lives."Mrs May said the government would look to apply the same approach to other projects in the future.
               
               
               
               
               
           
           
        Lorraine Allanson, a businesswoman in North Yorkshire who campaigns for fracking, welcomed the move, saying money would "go into the homes of families and people who are less well off".She said it could be done "very safely, very quietly" and would boost local economies, and she accused those who opposed fracking of using "doomsday scenarios".However, Mike Hill, an anti-fracking campaigner from Lancashire, said the government was trying to "bribe" local communities."The local community up here in the north-west for example, where I live, has rejected fracking outright," he said."So it's absolutely outrageous that the government is now planning to overrule that local democracy and then try and bribe the local population. Quite frankly, it's disgusting, and it shouldn't be happening."
           
    Media captionThe BBC's David Shukman explains how fracking worksEnergy analyst David Cox, director of London Energy Consulting, agreed that the money would amount to a bribe, but welcomed the suggestion as a way to speed up the process and discover whether the gas could be produced "at an economic cost".Friends of the Earth said a Yougov survey for the Sunday Times last year found more people were opposed to fracking than supported it.Campaigner Tony Bosworth said: "Local people won't suddenly be bribed into accepting this unpopular practice, which poses risks to people and the environment."Greenpeace said the government had "tried to sweeten the fracking pill with cash payments before, and it didn't work".North Yorkshire approvalShale gas is extracted using a controversial process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. It is a way of extracting oil or gas from rocks by pumping liquid into them at high pressure.The government has said the process could provide the country with greater energy security and create jobs. But opponents say it can cause serious environmental pollution as well as disruption for people living near gas wells. In May, councillors in North Yorkshire voted to allow fracking near the village of Kirby Misperton.It is the first application approved since 2011.New licences for the technique, seen by the government as crucial for future energy needs, had been stalled after tests on the Fylde coast, in Lancashire, were found to have been the probable cause of minor earthquakes in the area.Are you in an area threatened by fracking proposals?

            The former Catholic Bishop of Derry, Edward Daly, whose image went worldwide during Bloody Sunday, has died.  He had been ill in hospital.  A spokesperson for the Diocese of Derry said his family was at his beside. A native of Belleek in County Fermanagh, he was 82.The image of the then Fr Daly waiving a handkerchief, as one of the victims of Bloody Sunday, Jackie Duddy, was carried to safety, was one of the most enduring images of the Troubles. He was then a 39-year-old curate at St Eugene's Cathedral in Londonderry having been a priest in the city since June 1962.
   
       
He was appointed Bishop of Derry in 1974, retiring from that role in 1993.

            He was forced into full retirement in 1994 after he suffered a stroke but he continued in the role of chaplain to Derry's Foyle Hospice until February, 2016. He made headlines in 2011 when he said there needed to be a place in the modern Catholic Church for a married priesthood.                                                                                                    He addressed the controversial issue in his book about his life in the church, A Troubled See.Bishop Daly said allowing clergymen to marry would ease the church's problems.He received the Freedom of the City of Derry in 2015.
