Tonight on BBC London News - millions of commuters face major

:00:08.:00:10.

travel disruption as talks to avert a Tube strike breakdown.

:00:11.:00:16.

Nightmare, absolute nightmare. It stinks, it is not good especially

:00:17.:00:22.

with what is going on with Southern at the moment.

:00:23.:00:25.

So where does this leave the Mayor's relationship with the tube unions?

:00:26.:00:28.

Also tonight - a claim that people died after a computer meltdown

:00:29.:00:30.

at the London Ambulance service on New Year's Day.

:00:31.:00:33.

The people of London were failed on New Year's Eve.

:00:34.:00:35.

They were watching their loved ones and their friends

:00:36.:00:37.

suffering, waiting, not knowing if and when help is going to arrive.

:00:38.:00:41.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -

:00:42.:00:43.

the security measures bringing about a change in tradition.

:00:44.:00:48.

hoping for a giant killing - we speak to one of the FA Cup's

:00:49.:01:00.

Good evening and welcome to the programme.

:01:01.:01:13.

Millions of commuters face major travel disruption next week

:01:14.:01:18.

after talks to avert a 24-hour Tube strike collapsed this afternoon.

:01:19.:01:22.

Industrial action is due to start on Sunday and will pretty much

:01:23.:01:25.

shut down all Zone 1 stations on Monday.

:01:26.:01:28.

The ongoing row is over job cuts and the closure of ticket offices.

:01:29.:01:31.

Here's our Transport Correspondent, Tom Edwards.

:01:32.:01:36.

Arriving for talks, there was some optimism that this

:01:37.:01:41.

long-running, acrimonious dispute could be resolved.

:01:42.:01:44.

Is this about the unions showing the mayor who is boss?

:01:45.:01:51.

Absolutely not, it is about having a safe London Underground

:01:52.:01:53.

for the 4 million people that use it nearly every day.

:01:54.:01:56.

This dispute goes back to the closure of the Tube ticket

:01:57.:01:59.

offices under the previous mayor Boris Johnson in 2015.

:02:00.:02:01.

The unions always hated the policy, saying it was unsafe,

:02:02.:02:05.

But the closures happened and around 840 jobs went.

:02:06.:02:14.

London Underground says it saves ?50 million annually.

:02:15.:02:17.

Now under a new mayor, both sides agree more staff

:02:18.:02:21.

are needed on the Tube but the sticking point is how many

:02:22.:02:24.

And by three o'clock, talks had collapsed.

:02:25.:02:31.

No agreement on extra station staff numbers.

:02:32.:02:35.

Very disappointed to find London Underground were unable today

:02:36.:02:42.

to put one additional job on the table that they

:02:43.:02:45.

hadn't put on before. A miserable response

:02:46.:02:47.

from them to a crisis across London Underground stations.

:02:48.:02:50.

We are now in a total crisis situation, so there needs to be

:02:51.:02:53.

something fairly drastic immediately as well as a longer-term solution

:02:54.:02:56.

Tonight, commuters were disappointed.

:02:57.:03:02.

From the last strikes, there were hours of delays.

:03:03.:03:05.

It took like four hours when normally takes like half an hour.

:03:06.:03:08.

These strikes are not good, especially with what has

:03:09.:03:14.

The bad news for commuters is there is going to be considerable

:03:15.:03:20.

disruption from Sunday at 6pm and all day Monday.

:03:21.:03:25.

On Monday, all Tube stations in Zone 1 will be shut.

:03:26.:03:29.

The Victoria and the Waterloo City lines won't run.

:03:30.:03:32.

And there will be a severely reduced service on all other lines,

:03:33.:03:35.

What we will be doing is adding 50 additional buses

:03:36.:03:43.

What we will be doing is adding 150 additional buses

:03:44.:03:47.

We are putting our travel ambassadors out into the stations

:03:48.:03:53.

as well, to help to give people advice and our clear advice

:03:54.:03:56.

to people is to make sure that they check before they travel

:03:57.:03:59.

All sides concede a lack of staff on the Tube is a problem and this

:04:00.:04:04.

strike is a blow to the new mayor who wanted better

:04:05.:04:07.

It is also a blow to commuters who face wretched journeys next week.

:04:08.:04:15.

Well, our Political Correspondent, Karl Mercer, joins me now.

:04:16.:04:18.

Karl - a new year, a new Mayor but the same old story on the Tube.

:04:19.:04:24.

And one that has haunted previous mares at City Hall as well. Sadiq

:04:25.:04:35.

Khan spent a lot of his first eight months saying that he wanted to talk

:04:36.:04:38.

to unions, that was how to avoid strikes. In February he told a

:04:39.:04:44.

newspaper that he would be the mayor who delivered zero days of strikes

:04:45.:04:47.

on the Tube. That clearly hasn't happened. They believe Transport for

:04:48.:04:52.

London had offered a good deal on this. When I caught up with him

:04:53.:04:57.

earlier, I put it to him, what would it mean if the strikes were to go

:04:58.:04:58.

ahead. Will it be a sign of personal

:04:59.:05:01.

failure if this strike did go ahead? You've put a lot of store by their

:05:02.:05:05.

not being strikes on your watch. I think strikes are

:05:06.:05:08.

a failure on all sides. If strikes take place and that

:05:09.:05:11.

means trade unions, TFL, all of us have failed

:05:12.:05:14.

in resolving this amicably. Acas are doing their bit

:05:15.:05:16.

and the trade unions have been doing their bit to give them credit,

:05:17.:05:19.

they have been talking. They have been speaking

:05:20.:05:22.

on Wednesday, Thursday and today and we are going

:05:23.:05:26.

to carry on talking. It can't be beyond our width

:05:27.:05:28.

to resolve this amicably. We have heard since one of the

:05:29.:05:37.

unions will be back talking tomorrow, the RMT will not be back

:05:38.:05:42.

on the mayor has given us an updated statement saying the strikes are

:05:43.:05:45.

unnecessary and he urges the unions to call it. He says it will cause

:05:46.:05:51.

misery and disruption to millions of Londoners. It is not the end of the

:05:52.:05:56.

dispute either, remember. All the latest on that as it happens.

:05:57.:05:59.

And of course the Tube network isn't the only rail system

:06:00.:06:01.

We are broadcasting a special debate about the ongoing rail

:06:02.:06:07.

crisis with Southern - you'll be able to watch that

:06:08.:06:09.

on Monday 9th January at 7.30pm here on BBC One.

:06:10.:06:15.

Lots more to come including - the nightclub that was closed

:06:16.:06:18.

after a number of drug-related deaths reopens with

:06:19.:06:21.

A whistle-blower has claimed that people lost their lives as a result

:06:22.:06:37.

of a computer failure at the London Ambulance Service.

:06:38.:06:41.

BBC News can reveal that at least one 999 patient died

:06:42.:06:44.

during the technical failure in the early hours

:06:45.:06:47.

The service say staff were trained effectively in using a manual

:06:48.:06:52.

back-up system and continued to prioritise patients

:06:53.:06:54.

in the same way. Jon Ironmonger reports.

:06:55.:06:59.

With an investigation under way into the technical meltdown

:07:00.:07:02.

at the London Ambulance Service, one death is now being looked

:07:03.:07:04.

at to see if the computer problems were a contributing factor.

:07:05.:07:07.

The BBC has heard damning claims from a whistle-blower that the real

:07:08.:07:10.

The people of London were failed on New Year's Eve.

:07:11.:07:17.

They were watching their loved ones and their friends suffering,

:07:18.:07:20.

waiting, not knowing if and when help

:07:21.:07:23.

Do you think there is a chance that people might have died as a result

:07:24.:07:30.

of this computer failure? Without a shadow of a doubt.

:07:31.:07:32.

If you've had a cardiac arrest, we aim to get

:07:33.:07:35.

you within eight minutes. It wouldn't have happened.

:07:36.:07:37.

Shortly after midnight when the streets of London

:07:38.:07:44.

were packed with people, the multi-million pound computer

:07:45.:07:49.

system which logs emergencies and assigns ambulances, collapsed.

:07:50.:07:52.

For five hours, control staff were forced to process hundreds

:07:53.:07:55.

The service say they had been given effective training.

:07:56.:08:01.

The BBC has seen leaked photographs of the internal staff Facebook page

:08:02.:08:04.

which suggests that some employees felt under extreme pressure

:08:05.:08:07.

on New Year's Day, one member questions why so many patients

:08:08.:08:10.

had to suffer, while workers are described as being

:08:11.:08:13.

in tears, shell-shocked, frustrated and angry.

:08:14.:08:16.

Staff are trained to cope in the event of technical

:08:17.:08:21.

difficulties and it is not the first time that the computer

:08:22.:08:25.

But never before, we understand, for such a long period

:08:26.:08:30.

We are very sorry to anyone who experienced delays during those

:08:31.:08:36.

issues on New Year's Day, we are obviously taking

:08:37.:08:38.

the matter very seriously. And to that end, we have

:08:39.:08:41.

launched a full and comments extended investigation.

:08:42.:08:44.

In 2015, the London Ambulance Service was placed

:08:45.:08:47.

Since then, it has taken steps to improve.

:08:48.:08:53.

The Care Quality Commission said it would follow up concerns

:08:54.:08:55.

about control room problems during a planned

:08:56.:08:58.

It's a British tradition which has become one of London's most popular

:08:59.:09:05.

But the Changing of the Guard is to be 'changed' -

:09:06.:09:11.

under new security measures brought in by the Met.

:09:12.:09:14.

Frankie McCamley is at Buckingham Palace with more on this.

:09:15.:09:17.

Police here say there is no evidence of a planned attack here. However,

:09:18.:09:34.

they have decided to bring in extra security measures early because they

:09:35.:09:37.

have been taking into account those planned terror attacks in Berlin and

:09:38.:09:47.

Nice which were particularly targeted at large crowds of people.

:09:48.:09:54.

The hope is, that this age-old tradition will continue to run as

:09:55.:09:55.

smoothly as possible. It's one of London's

:09:56.:09:59.

most popular ceremonies, dating back to the 17th century,

:10:00.:10:02.

when the old guard responsible for protecting Buckingham Palace

:10:03.:10:06.

and St James' Park formally hands over responsibilities

:10:07.:10:09.

to the new soldiers on duty. Thousands of people come to see

:10:10.:10:13.

the Changing of the Guard every single week but those crowds, paired

:10:14.:10:17.

with the location of this ceremony at Buckingham Palace,

:10:18.:10:21.

makes this a high-profile With a bomb attack in the '80s

:10:22.:10:24.

by the IRA leaving 11 soldiers and seven horses dead,

:10:25.:10:31.

with many more injured. And since, the recent attacks

:10:32.:10:34.

in Europe have led to security Extra barriers are being put

:10:35.:10:38.

in place, the roads around Buckingham Palace are to remain

:10:39.:10:46.

closed throughout the ceremony and the days the Changing

:10:47.:10:49.

of the Guard takes place It will make the area and that

:10:50.:10:51.

event considerably safer. The intention of the police

:10:52.:10:58.

in planning for this is to protect the public,

:10:59.:11:04.

protect crowds that gather for this iconic occasion

:11:05.:11:07.

and in creating distance, closing roads, stopping hostile

:11:08.:11:12.

vehicles getting near the event will obviously make it safer

:11:13.:11:15.

for everybody attending. It's also hoped the Changing

:11:16.:11:20.

will make it easier for drivers It is very sad but it seems

:11:21.:11:23.

like a sign of the times. Because here we are in London

:11:24.:11:28.

and we are just as likely to have a terrorist attack

:11:29.:11:31.

as anywhere else It surprises me that they want

:11:32.:11:33.

to put it on the same day every week because that seems rather

:11:34.:11:38.

predictable and I would have thought they would want to be a bit less

:11:39.:11:40.

predictable than that. If you are going to put

:11:41.:11:43.

more guards around it, you make people more

:11:44.:11:45.

nervous around things. They would rather have more manpower

:11:46.:11:47.

implemented on the place so that they can move

:11:48.:11:52.

around between the crowd so that they can move around

:11:53.:11:57.

between the crowd and check things. The main security measures are now

:11:58.:12:00.

undergoing a three-month trial. If successful, they could become

:12:01.:12:03.

a permanent fixture in the capital. Video footage of a teenager

:12:04.:12:05.

being attacked in a Brixton takeaway The 18-year-old was stabbed

:12:06.:12:08.

and whipped with a belt in Dallas Chicken on 2nd January

:12:09.:12:14.

by three masked men. One man has been arrested,

:12:15.:12:17.

but the Met are hoping this CCTV will help find

:12:18.:12:24.

the four other suspects. A new victim of the Hatton Garden

:12:25.:12:28.

burglary has come forward - claiming to have lost up

:12:29.:12:31.

to ?7 million. The heist - over the Easter Bank

:12:32.:12:35.

Holiday weekend of 2015 - is believed to be Britain's

:12:36.:12:38.

biggest ever burglary. If this new claim is true - the sum

:12:39.:12:42.

stolen would reach ?21 million. The six men convicted of taking part

:12:43.:12:45.

in the heist were sentenced to between six and seven

:12:46.:12:48.

years in prison. An explosion on a boat in south-east

:12:49.:12:52.

London sparked a huge fire It took more than 80 fire fighters

:12:53.:12:55.

to control the blaze which spread The former Royal Navy minesweeper

:12:56.:13:02.

was being used as an arts venue, after being salvaged by a group

:13:03.:13:09.

of friends almost 20 years ago. The cause of the fire

:13:10.:13:11.

is under investigation. One of London's most famous

:13:12.:13:15.

nightclubs is to re-open this evening after it was closed

:13:16.:13:18.

because of safety concerns. Fabric in Islington was criticised

:13:19.:13:22.

and had its licence taken away after a number

:13:23.:13:25.

of drug-related deaths. Its owners say a raft of strict

:13:26.:13:29.

new security measures Marc Ashdown's report

:13:30.:13:31.

contains flashing images. Once voted the best club

:13:32.:13:39.

in the world, the party The doors reopened for the first

:13:40.:13:43.

time tonight after its forced closure last year following

:13:44.:13:48.

the drug-related deaths Its owner says the past

:13:49.:13:50.

year has been tough. I don't think there is any kind

:13:51.:13:59.

of pleasure or relief that we have We are obviously delighted

:14:00.:14:02.

we will be reopening but I don't think we will be looking back over

:14:03.:14:07.

this particular chapter with any kind of fond memories,

:14:08.:14:10.

let's just say that. Islington Council took away

:14:11.:14:12.

the club's license in September, Fabric had been involved in six

:14:13.:14:15.

drug-related deaths in four years. The drug culture was

:14:16.:14:21.

prevalent in the old club These deaths, theae are real people

:14:22.:14:26.

and this is a real family that has been devastated.

:14:27.:14:34.

It is my job to protect people. An inquest this week heard how

:14:35.:14:37.

18-year-old Jack Crosley died after smuggling drugs into the club

:14:38.:14:43.

in his underwear. Today was just about understanding

:14:44.:14:46.

what happened to Jack, how it happened and how we can avoid

:14:47.:14:48.

it happening to anyone If Fabric shuts, there will be

:14:49.:15:01.

another club opening up, another venue. There is a new scanning

:15:02.:15:05.

system and there will be tougher security searches. Once inside the

:15:06.:15:10.

club, there is better lighting, more CCTV and covert security staff will

:15:11.:15:15.

be patrolling and anyone caught in possession of drugs, faces a

:15:16.:15:19.

lifetime ban. 150,000 people signed a petition to save the club,

:15:20.:15:26.

including top DJs and artists. This isn't only a club, if you look at

:15:27.:15:30.

pop music today or pop culture, drugs are littered throughout the

:15:31.:15:34.

entire culture. So the idea that dance music culture is to blame is

:15:35.:15:38.

ridiculous. Extra police will be patrolling tonight for the grand

:15:39.:15:44.

reopening. The club insist it will operate a zero tolerance policy. It

:15:45.:15:47.

is up to customers to make sure it stays open.

:15:48.:15:49.

From London stadium where it is West Ham against Manchester City tonight.

:15:50.:16:04.

To Sutton united taking on AFC Wimbledon, we will be looking at the

:16:05.:16:06.

FA Cup third round weekend. And after a couple of cold, crisp

:16:07.:16:08.

mornings, it is out with the frost and in with the cloud

:16:09.:16:11.

for the weekend. All this week we've been looking

:16:12.:16:13.

ahead to the Government's crucial Brexit negotiations in March

:16:14.:16:23.

and what they may Immigration and the free movement

:16:24.:16:26.

of people from the EU will feature So - would it be damaging to London

:16:27.:16:32.

if we saw the end of unlimited We'll be discussing that

:16:33.:16:38.

in a moment, but first here are the views

:16:39.:16:43.

of two London firms. We employ about 240 people and about

:16:44.:16:59.

70% UK, 20% Europe and 10% rest of the world. My vote was to stay in

:17:00.:17:09.

but I am quite excited and there are lots of good things happening as a

:17:10.:17:14.

result of moving out. The reality is, any restrictions, we will

:17:15.:17:20.

manage. We have got 60 million people in the UK and we can work

:17:21.:17:26.

with them. We have 10% of our staff coming from either side of Europe so

:17:27.:17:29.

we manage with them. So it is nothing to worry about, we will sort

:17:30.:17:36.

it may be. We will sort it. I am Chris Williamson and we have a

:17:37.:17:46.

people working in our architects in London, probably about 35 people

:17:47.:17:50.

from the European Union. The biggest concern most people have is the

:17:51.:17:54.

uncertainty and we need to know a bit more clarity about whether

:17:55.:17:59.

people can stay and whether we are going to still be able to attract

:18:00.:18:03.

the brightest and the best people, which is what we want to do. Andreas

:18:04.:18:08.

moved over from Spain with his family and he came for an interview

:18:09.:18:11.

and we offered him a job. He moved here in February. It is not a great

:18:12.:18:18.

situation to be in. I know a lot of architects worried about the

:18:19.:18:23.

investment, will it still flow into London and into the UK? A lot of

:18:24.:18:29.

projects have been put on hold while people look at what might happen.

:18:30.:18:32.

Let's get more on this now from an organisation

:18:33.:18:36.

which represents London's business community - London First

:18:37.:18:39.

You've published a report today on the challenges London is facing

:18:40.:18:44.

in the run up to Brexit - what have you found?

:18:45.:18:48.

I think our top point is whatever you think about Brexit in the long

:18:49.:18:56.

term, whether it will be great or difficult, it is going to absolutely

:18:57.:19:00.

create uncertainty for the next five or ten years. What we need to do is

:19:01.:19:04.

double down and take the actions we can. What you might think of as the

:19:05.:19:08.

no regret actions, we need to make sure we tell the world we will

:19:09.:19:13.

remain a business and we need to invest in our infrastructure. We

:19:14.:19:16.

have been saying we will remain open for business but in concrete terms,

:19:17.:19:20.

what do you want to see? Our report says firstly, around immigration and

:19:21.:19:27.

make sure we signal to the world that after Brexit, we will remain

:19:28.:19:31.

open to the will's talent. We of course need to re-emphasise our own

:19:32.:19:34.

efforts to train people in the country but we also need to be open

:19:35.:19:39.

to global talent. The other thing we need to do is to keep the city

:19:40.:19:44.

working by investing in the housing crisis and transport. Remaining open

:19:45.:19:50.

to talent in policy terms, what policies do you want to see to

:19:51.:19:53.

enable that to happen? We want to see a liberal visa regime. At the

:19:54.:20:02.

moment, something like 80% of those people from the European Union who

:20:03.:20:05.

are working in London and the rest of the country would not be eligible

:20:06.:20:10.

for a visa. If we switch that off overnight, that would be a calamity

:20:11.:20:15.

for our economy. We can find these talented people from a larger

:20:16.:20:20.

market, the rest of the world? And that is great. As long as we have an

:20:21.:20:23.

immigration regime allowing businesses across the country to the

:20:24.:20:27.

other acts as the people it needs to generate the wealth of the country

:20:28.:20:30.

as a whole, that will work. But nobody will disagree with you in a

:20:31.:20:34.

way, everyone says we want an open system and the best people. I'm not

:20:35.:20:40.

sure that is true. If you set arbitrary targets and the number of

:20:41.:20:43.

people you will have Andrew Netto that off, that is not a system

:20:44.:20:47.

allowing people to recruit who they need. We have run out of time but

:20:48.:20:53.

thank you. Now there's a weekend of FA Cup

:20:54.:20:55.

action to look forward to - it's the third round which is

:20:56.:20:58.

when the Premier League teams join the competition and lower league

:20:59.:21:01.

sides hope to cause a shock. First up is West Ham

:21:02.:21:04.

who host Manchester City. Chris Slegg is at the London Stadium

:21:05.:21:06.

for us ahead of tonight's kick-off. The first FA Cup action here at the

:21:07.:21:21.

former Olympic stadium. The young mascots warming up. West Ham could

:21:22.:21:27.

do with some FA Cup magic because the problems in the Premier League

:21:28.:21:32.

all season. Manchester City, big spenders, they will be favourites.

:21:33.:21:37.

But no reason why Slaven Bilic's hammers cannot go on an extended cup

:21:38.:21:42.

run this year. Crystal Palace got to the final last season. Wigan beat

:21:43.:21:51.

Manchester City in the final. This is the Premier League elite.

:21:52.:21:55.

Tomorrow across the capital, there is a tie that uses FA Cup history.

:21:56.:22:01.

AFC Wimbledon travel to Sutton united who caused one of the

:22:02.:22:03.

greatest third-round shocks of all time.

:22:04.:22:06.

Emotional scenes here at Gander Green Lane, Sutton.

:22:07.:22:08.

Few among the 8,000 crowd present that day will ever forget non-league

:22:09.:22:11.

For 18-year-old Kelly, it was particularly special.

:22:12.:22:19.

27 years on, she is still moved by the memories.

:22:20.:22:23.

So emotional because it was my brother Matt Hanlon

:22:24.:22:26.

Just an incredible moment, one of those things you dream

:22:27.:22:32.

about happening but never actually think it is going to.

:22:33.:22:35.

Who was the chap you were with in the crowd that day?

:22:36.:22:44.

He was my boyfriend James and today, he is my husband.

:22:45.:22:47.

That is the romance of the FA Cup for you!

:22:48.:22:51.

Also on the terraces that day, Geoff Martin, who has been

:22:52.:22:54.

inspired to write his own FA Cup third-round song.

:22:55.:23:00.

# Tell you about the day we beat Coventry!

:23:01.:23:05.

The FA Cup history of Sutton United just goes before us and nobody

:23:06.:23:10.

involved in this club will ever forget the achievements of the past

:23:11.:23:12.

but now we are looking to build the achievements of the future.

:23:13.:23:15.

This fixture also strikes a chord with aficionados of AFC

:23:16.:23:18.

The re-formed club played their first ever fixture here -

:23:19.:23:23.

a pre-season friendly in July 2002. They lost 4-0.

:23:24.:23:26.

They will be hoping for a better result

:23:27.:23:30.

on Saturday and of course, plenty has changed since that day.

:23:31.:23:34.

In Round 2, the Dons came from 3-0 down with ten minutes

:23:35.:23:37.

left to beat Curzon Ashton, and now want to do justice to the original

:23:38.:23:43.

I know it probably doesn't carry all the way to the top any more

:23:44.:23:53.

but it's massive to be able to know what might be round the corner

:23:54.:23:56.

and Wimbledon obviously have their own history

:23:57.:23:58.

but we desperately want to do well in the Cup.

:23:59.:24:01.

Sutton caused a mini shock in Round 2 with a 96-minute winner,

:24:02.:24:05.

seeing off League 2 Cheltenham, but which south London

:24:06.:24:08.

team will be singing when they are winning tomorrow?

:24:09.:24:10.

So much excitement about that time, also live on BBC London tomorrow,

:24:11.:24:25.

:24:26.:24:30.

long-term future at the den, for Millwall. Tonight, West Ham against

:24:38.:24:40.

Now let's check on the weather with Ben Rich.

:24:41.:24:46.

Chris had a job keeping warm there. It was freezing. He was modelling

:24:47.:24:53.

the scars very nicely! Scars may not be so necessary over the weekend but

:24:54.:24:57.

neither will sunglasses. We will lose the cold and crisp start to the

:24:58.:25:02.

day and we will see more cloud spreading in. We will stick with

:25:03.:25:05.

that cloudier theme as we go through the weekend.

:25:06.:25:11.

It would be quite as cold. A lot of clout through today and some of that

:25:12.:25:18.

actually no spreading its way southwards and eastwards across the

:25:19.:25:22.

London area and bringing some outbreaks of rain. Fairly light and

:25:23.:25:27.

patchy for the most part. A pretty soggy story if you are heading out

:25:28.:25:31.

and about this Friday night. The temperatures, well below freezing.

:25:32.:25:40.

Tomorrow morning we start off perhaps with some patchy rain but

:25:41.:25:43.

that will clear quickly and are largely dry day. You have to squint

:25:44.:25:47.

at the map to see much in the way of brightness. Some cloud will be quite

:25:48.:25:53.

low and there could be some misty nuts on the hills. Double digit

:25:54.:25:57.

temperatures. This is a selection of the FA Cup fixtures.

:25:58.:26:07.

Largely dry and mild as the story for Saturday night. A lot of cloud,

:26:08.:26:14.

some murkiness on the graphics, particularly over high ground but

:26:15.:26:19.

temperatures again holding up. Sunday, it is more of the same. More

:26:20.:26:26.

cloud and mist and murkiness and largely dry weather. Some breaks in

:26:27.:26:29.

the cloud and perhaps some sunny spells. A change into the start of

:26:30.:26:36.

next week. This weather fronts swinging southwards on Monday

:26:37.:26:40.

bringing rain late in the day. Blustery winds with that as well.

:26:41.:26:44.

For the weekend, largely cloudy and dry and not as cold as it has been.

:26:45.:26:47.

Say goodbye to the frost from now. A terminally ill man has begun

:26:48.:26:52.
