Nato summit: Divisions exposed

Competing agendas threaten to make the birthday celebrations somewhat tense.

Competing agendas threaten to make the birthday celebrations somewhat tense. Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, says he will oppose the alliance's plan for the defence of the Baltic if it does not back Turkey over its fight against groups it considers terrorists. President Trump has also hit out at French plans to tax digital giants from next month, which will chiefly affect the US tech sector.

Also on the programme, a US woman who says she was brought to Britain aged 17 to have sex with Prince Andrew has implored the British public to "stand beside her" and typhoon Kammuri is lashing the Philippines with torrential rain and winds of up to 150 kilometres an hour.
