Derrick Williams and Bradley Dack scored the goals as Blackburn secured victory over Millwall at Ewood Park.
Williams drove the ball home from 20 yards after there had been little to choose between the sides in the opening exchanges.
The Lions struggled to carve out chances and most of their first-half efforts were from outside the box.
Adam Armstrong almost made it two after the break, only to be denied by Bartosz Bialkowski’s reaction save, but the Millwall keeper could do nothing as Dack slid home Darragh Lenihan’s square ball to seal the points.
Both managers made two changes for their first game after the international break, with Tosin Adarabioyo and John Buckley in for Rovers, and Jayson Molumby and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson making their first Championship starts for Millwall.
Bodvarsson provided the pass for an early shot by Jed Wallace, but it was off target and the visitors fell behind when Williams found the bottom corner after receiving the ball from Greg Cunningham.
Lions boss Neil Harris sent on Matt Smith in the second half to provide a more physical presence up front and Ryan Leonard was only just too high from Bodvarsson’s lay-off.
Millwall’s hopes were ended when Dack found the net for the third time this season and, although Ben Thompson tested home keeper Christian Walton after beating two tackles, they could not find a consolation goal and are now without a win in four league games.
A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of murdering an eight-week-old girl.
The baby was pronounced dead after she was found at a home in the Bermondsey area of south-east London on 26 April.
A post-mortem revealed a number of broken bones and the man, 24, and woman, 21, were held on suspicion of grievous bodily harm in May.
After more tests, the Met said, the pair were further arrested on suspicion of murder.
They have since been released on bail until mid-October as inquiries continue, the force said.
Giovani Lo Celso is unlikely to play for Tottenham Hotspur until the end of October after sustaining a hip injury on international duty.
Lo Celso, who joined Spurs on a season-long loan from Real Betis in August, suffered the injury in Argentina’s 0-0 draw with Chile on Friday.
Spurs revealed the extent of the damage after his country sent him home early.
The 23-year-old has appeared in three Premier League games, but is yet to start a match for his new club.
Beth England’s excellent 25-yard strike gave Chelsea victory over Tottenham in their first Women’s Super League match at Stamford Bridge.
England, who made her international debut for Phil Neville’s team against Belgium last week, fired into the top-left corner within four minutes.
Chelsea could have extended their lead when Guro Reiten and Drew Spence both hit the woodwork in the second half.
The hosts dominated the game in large parts in front of 24,564 fans at the men’s stadium but they were tested by the newly-promoted side.
Spurs were a threat going forward – Rachel Furness and Gemma Davison both had opportunities to equalise either side of half-time.
But it was always going to be a difficult afternoon for Tottenham and they were up against it from the off when Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson poked inches wide from an unmarked position.
There was a carnival feel throughout the match, set in place before kick-off with a DJ set from former JLS singer Marvin Humes and countless popcorn stands around Stamford Bridge.
And on the pitch, the 24,000 fans who had picked up free tickets were rewarded with attacking football and a feast of World Cup talent in the Blues line-up, including England defender Millie Bright, Norway’s Maren Mjelde and South Korea’s Ji So-yun.
The attendance was just over 6,000 short of the record WSL figure set at the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
Five trustees who ran an east London academy where a teacher tried to radicalise pupils have been disqualified from any similar roles.
The Charity Commission investigated Essex Islamic Academy in Barking after Umar Ahmed Haque was convicted of terrorism offences last year.
It found the trustees had failed to safeguard pupils who were shown videos created by the Islamic State group.
The Essex Islamic Academy has been approached for comment.
Haque was initially recruited as an administrative assistant by the academy but he later began teaching classes unsupervised to about 80-100 children.
The Old Bailey previously heard he showed “violent and graphic” footage to children as young as 11 as part of attempts to train an “army of children” for terrorist attacks.
‘No due diligence’
The Charity Commission found the trustees did not check what Haque was teaching and had not applied for an enhanced DBS check which was required for his teaching role.
“Ultimately the inquiry established that no due diligence was carried out prior to Haque taking up employment,” the commission said.
Investigators also found the trustees initially withheld the fact that Abuthaher Mamun, who assisted Haque in his classes and was later also convicted of terror offences, had worked at the charity.
Michelle Russell, director of investigations, said children at the academy “were let down” by the trustees, who have all been banned from holding trusteeships for 10 years.
A new board of trustees have been appointed, after the commission installed an interim manager at the academy in June 2018.
Head coach Danny Ward wants to remain at London Broncos, regardless which division the club are playing in next season, and remains in talks.
Ward, 39, led the Broncos into Super League with a shock promotion final victory over Toronto Wolfpack.
The Broncos could yet be relegated after one season, two points adrift at the bottom, with two games to play.
“I’m speaking to London now, I’m very happy here and I want to extend,” Ward told BBC Radio London.
He joked: “I’m that slack, I sort the lads out first before I get round to myself.
“I’ve not signed my contract from last year yet, or the year before, so that’s the way I’ve always operated.”
Ward’s stock has risen during his time at the Broncos, having gone from age groups coaching to the main job, and was also appointed part of Wayne Bennett’s coaching set-up for Great Britain.
Given the nature of their promotion from the Championship and the challenge to acquire Super League-calibre players at late notice, Ward’s side have earned respect for their performances and results in 2019.
Nine victories, including two successes against the league leaders St Helens and another over champions Wigan, have given the Ealing-based club a chance of survival.
However, they will probably need to win both of their remaining matches to survive.
“London is my home and I’ve been here 12 years now,” Ward added.
“I’ve been involved in every age group, I see it as a long term project and I want to be part of London Broncos in Super League.”
Demonstrations are taking place across the UK against Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament in the run-up to Brexit.
Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in cities including Manchester, Leeds, York and Belfast.
In London, Whitehall has been brought to a standstill, with demonstrators chanting “Boris Johnson, shame on you”.
A small group of counter-protesters, marching in support of the prime minister, also arrived in Westminster.
Mr Johnson’s plan to prorogue Parliament prompted an angry backlash from MPs and opponents of a no-deal Brexit when he announced it on Wednesday.
When Parliament is suspended, no debates and votes are held. This is different to “dissolving” Parliament – where all MPs give up their seats to campaign in a general election.
If this prorogation happens as expected, it will see Parliament closed for 23 working days.
Critics view the length and timing of the prorogation – coming just weeks before the Brexit deadline on 31 October – as controversial.
Protests are taking place in more than 30 towns and cities across the UK, including Edinburgh, Belfast, Cambridge, Exeter, Nottingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.
In Oxford, crowds holding banners gathered outside Balliol College, where Mr Johnson studied at university.
Named “Stop the Coup”, the protests are organised by anti-Brexit campaign group Another Europe is Possible.
The group also said there were protests planned in Amsterdam, Berlin and the Latvian capital Riga.
Shadow chancellor John McDonnell and shadow home secretary Diane Abbott both addressed crowds in London.
“Boris Johnson, this is not about Parliament versus the people, this is about you versus the people,” Mr McDonnell said.
Speaking from a stage near Downing Street, Ms Abbott told protesters: “We cannot allow Boris Johnson to shut down Parliament and to shut down the voice of ordinary British people.”
Journalist and activist Owen Jones, who will speak at the London protest, said: “This is about defending democracy.
“We have an unelected prime minister shutting down the elected representatives of the British public who are supposed to be scrutinising the biggest upheaval since the end of the war.
“I think people who voted Remain or Leave should take to the streets today – no-one voted for a no-deal Brexit.
“There will be Remainers [at the protests] but I’ve had Leavers get in touch with me and tell me they will be marching, too.”
Chancellor Sajid Javid, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, defended the prime minister’s decision to suspend Parliament.
He said: “It’s quite usual this time of year for Parliament to go in to a recess. It’s perfectly correct and appropriate to prorogue Parliament.
“I think it’s absolutely right that this prime minister and his government get the chance to set up their agenda.”
UK divided over what democracy means
It’s a far cry from the numbers that we saw marching through Westminster earlier this year. I think we’d probably measure this one in the low thousands [in central London].
But there are deeply-held passions here, different kinds of passions. Some are here because they don’t like Boris Johnson’s government, some because they are worried about proroguing Parliament, some because they don’t want no deal, some because they don’t want Brexit at all.
There’s been a lot of talk about democracy from the people I’ve spoken to here today, but actually I think what it comes down to is a country which is driven by very different definitions about what democracy actually means.
The Jo Cox Foundation, which was set up in the wake of the Labour MP’s murder in 2016, warned that anger over Brexit “should not spill over into something more dangerous”.
Meanwhile, a petition against the prime minister’s plan to suspend Parliament has received more than a million signatures.
And on Friday, former Tory Prime Minister Sir John Major announced he will join forces with anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller to oppose the decision to suspend Parliament in the courts.
He believes Mr Johnson’s move to suspend Parliament is aimed at preventing MPs from opposing a no-deal Brexit.
The prime minister has dismissed suggestions that suspending Parliament is motivated by a desire to force through a no deal, calling them “completely untrue”.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said: “The idea this is some kind of constitutional outrage is nonsense.”

Climate campaigners’ plans to use drones to disrupt flights out of Heathrow Airport are “criminal and counterproductive”, the airport said.
Heathrow Pause, an Extinction Rebellion offshoot not endorsed by the other group, announced plans to fly toy drones within the no-fly zone, grounding all flights, on 13 September.
Organisers expect up to “a couple of hundred people” to be involved.
Heathrow airport said: “We agree with the need to act on climate change.”
The spokeswoman added: “This is a global issue that requires constructive engagement and action.
“Committing criminal offences and disrupting passengers is counterproductive.”
The activists said they “can’t stand aside” and have to act, with disruption intended to last for a number of days and potentially longer.
The group said the small, lightweight drones would not be flown above head height or on flight paths.
Flying drones over 15.5lbs (7kg) in weight above 400ft (122m) is considered “hazardous” under current legislation.
However, activists plan to operate within the three-mile (5km) no-fly zone surrounding the airport, introduced after drone sightings at Gatwick Airport in December caused about 1,000 flights to be cancelled or diverted.
The airport is to be given one hour’s notice before each drone flight, the group said, with flights planned at regular intervals, ensuring “no aircraft flights will take place”.
Extinction Rebellion said it did “not support” the actions of the new Heathrow Pause group, although both groups share many of the same coordinators.
In a statement the group said: “Extinction Rebellion UK neither condones nor condemns the action and will not be supporting it in any way.”
Scotland Yard said: “Any drone flown into the path of an aircraft has the potential to cause great harm and endanger those on board.
“Anyone caught illegally using a drone within the proximity of an airport can expect to be dealt with in line with the law.”
In a 22-page manifesto, Heathrow Pause said protestors “are prepared to be arrested peacefully”.
“Our readiness and courage are based on the conviction that our actions are a humanitarian act, this is an act of conscience, and this action is proportionate,” the group said.
Iran’s judiciary says it has sentenced a British-Iranian woman and an Iranian man to 10 years in prison after convicting them of spying for Israel.
The woman, who was named as Anousheh Ashouri, was also handed a two-year term for illicitly acquiring money.
She and Ali Johari, an Iranian citizen, were accused of passing information to Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency.
The UK Foreign Office said it had been supporting the family of a British-Iranian dual national held in Iran.
“Our embassy in Tehran continues to request consular access,” it added.
“The treatment of all dual nationals detained in Iran is a priority and we raise their cases at the most senior levels. We urge Iran to let them be reunited with their families.”
Iran has detained a number of dual citizens and foreign nationals in recent years, many of them on spying charges. They include Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian a project manager for the Thomson Reuters Foundation who was sentenced to five years in prison in 2016.
The Iranian authorities do not recognise dual nationality for Iranian citizens and do not grant consular access for foreign diplomats to visit them in detention.
Iran’s judiciary also confirmed on Tuesday that an Iranian employed by the British Council had lost her appeal against a 10-year sentence for spying.
Aras Amiri, who had been working for the UK cultural organisation in London, was detained in Iran in March 2018.
Last week, her fiance told the BBC that she was being used as a “bargaining chip” by Iran’s government. James Tyson said the UK needed to “get on the phone” to Iran and “say this can’t happen”.
He added that Aras Amiri was being held in the same prison as Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, and that the two women were “close” and “very supportive of each other”.
Relations between the UK and Iran have been strained in recent weeks by a row over the seizure of two oil tankers.
On 4 July, an Iranian tanker was seized off the coast of Gibraltar with the help of the Royal Marines on suspicion of breaching EU sanctions on Syria.
The vessel was released on 15 August, but Iran is still holding a British-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf on 19 July for breaking “international maritime rules”.
