She's lost her parliamentary majority, but Theresa May will say her commitment to changing the country is "undimmed" as she gives her first major speech since the general election. The prime minister will also urge other parties to work with her to tackle "unfairness".

A year after taking office following David Cameron's resignation, Mrs May will acknowledge the "reality" of her position in Parliament, where she has reached an agreement with the Democratic Unionist Party to get legislation through. But this, she'll insist, will not prevent her taking "the bold action necessary to secure a better future".

The speech "is a pitch for cross-party consensus", says BBC political correspondent Chris Mason, but also an "explicit acknowledgement of her fragility". Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he hopes for another election in September.

Fire hits north London market

A "significant" fire has hit Camden Lock Market, a popular tourist destination in north London.

Donald Trump Jr has said he met Natalia Veselnitskaya but that "no meaningful information" on Mrs Clinton was shared.

Charlie Gard: Case in High Court

Fresh evidence in the case of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard will be heard later by the High Court. Great Ormond Street Hospital has referred the case back to court after researchers at two international healthcare facilities said they had information about "proposed experimental treatment". Charlie's parents have made several unsuccessful challenges against a decision to end the 11-month-old's life support. But the hospital says treatments being proposed are not a cure. "There is nothing to lose," said Charlie's mother, Connie Yates. "He deserves a chance."

Analysis: Stopping India's vigilante killings

With Theresa May due to give her first major speech since the election, newspapers react to her call for more cross-party consensus.
