Further coverage from the Olympic Stadium, featuring
Britain's trio of Jack Buckner , Ian Hamer and the much-improved 23-year-old
Rob Denmark running for places in the 5,000m final. Plus the conclusion of the men's long jump, the final event of the decathlon, and a roundup of the afternoon's main action, with men's team captain Linford Christie (200m) and the irrepressible Kriss Akabusi (400m hurdles) leading
Britain's hunt for medals.
Michael Buerk presents the last in a series of reconstructions of real-life rescues featuring the emergency services, actors and those people involved in the rescues themselves. Tonight: a diver's face mask shatters after an accident and with precious oxygen escaping from his tanks, his workmates have only a few seconds to get him to the safety of a diving bell; and a Birmingham woman jumps from her burning home carrying a baby in her arms, when flames cut her off from the rest of her children.
Firefighters are called to try to save the family. Plus tips on how to protect your home from fire, and video reporter
Fiona Foster out on the frontline with the rescue services.
