With Anna Foster and Tony Livesey. The NHS in England is failing to meet key targets and struggling to cope - even before winter has arrived.

Tony Livesey and Anna Foster with the day's news and sport. New figures show the NHS in England is already failing to meet its key targets and struggling to cope before the demands of winter set in.

The President of the European Council says there's 'a race against time' to save the Schengen agreement - which allows free movement across Europe - in the face of the migrant crisis.

We speak to a woman who had lunch with Hollywood star George Clooney.
