Finley's fight - the five year-old with a brain tumour finally meets

:00:00.:00:00.

the American surgeon who could change his life.

:00:07.:00:10.

A wealthy businessman accused of historic child sex abuse tells

:00:11.:00:13.

Smoking during pregnancy - researchers in Newcastle offer

:00:14.:00:19.

And we meet a poet offering a door-to-door service,

:00:20.:00:26.

In sport, why a French international will be playing his rugby

:00:27.:00:40.

And why English football's leading man in the middle

:00:41.:00:45.

The American surgeon who pioneered a treatment to destroy brain tumours

:00:46.:01:03.

has told a Teesside family the operation could

:01:04.:01:06.

Five-year-old Finley Ingles travelled to Houston

:01:07.:01:10.

after his family raised ?200,000 from well-wishers to pay for it.

:01:11.:01:16.

Finley can suffer up to 15 seizures a day -

:01:17.:01:18.

but his tumour is too deep to be operated on in this country.

:01:19.:01:21.

Surgeons at Texas Children's Hospital say the laser ablation

:01:22.:01:25.

treatment has improved the health of 80% of its patients.

:01:26.:01:29.

Stuart Whincup sent this report from Texas.

:01:30.:01:39.

It's home to America's biggest Children's Hospital.

:01:40.:01:43.

Ground-breaking brain surgery is performed here,

:01:44.:01:47.

and this is why Finley desperately need it.

:01:48.:01:50.

He's laughing, but feels discomfort and is left confused.

:01:51.:02:05.

The seizure happened as Finley's family were meeting the man

:02:06.:02:08.

who pioneered the surgery that he'll undergo.

:02:09.:02:11.

The treatment is called laser ablation surgery.

:02:12.:02:21.

A tiny hole is made in the skull, the size of the tip of a pen.

:02:22.:02:26.

And using MRI for guidence, a laser is directed where the tumour is,

:02:27.:02:30.

When we are considering our skill at treating

:02:31.:02:37.

this type of haematoma, even in open operations that

:02:38.:02:40.

would incur lots of side effects, it's only about 50%,

:02:41.:02:44.

Even away from the hospital in Houston, Finley's keen to show

:02:45.:02:57.

I'm allowed to get in here because I'm a Dr.

:02:58.:03:06.

For Finley's family, today's appointment did offer reassurance.

:03:07.:03:13.

It filled us with positivity, really.

:03:14.:03:15.

It filled us with a lot of confidence, knowing that he feels

:03:16.:03:17.

the operation will be such a success.

:03:18.:03:19.

Nothing can quite prepare you for your child to have surgery.

:03:20.:03:27.

And with the best will in the world, for all the googling

:03:28.:03:30.

and everything that we've done, actually meeting the man himself has

:03:31.:03:33.

After the years of hospital appointments, tests and scans,

:03:34.:03:36.

Finley is now just 24 hours away from the operation that

:03:37.:03:39.

He'll be admitted to Texas Children's Hospital in the early

:03:40.:03:43.

His family say this is Finley's last hope.

:03:44.:03:49.

His last chance for a happy childhood, free from

:03:50.:03:51.

And we'll have an update on Finley's progress in tomorrow's Look North.

:03:52.:04:09.

A 15-year-old girl has pleaded not guilty to the murder

:04:10.:04:12.

A wealthy businessman, accused of sexually abusing boys,

:04:13.:04:14.

has told a court he's the victim of a police witch hunt.

:04:15.:04:17.

75-year-old Colin Gregg, from Newcastle, was giving evidence

:04:18.:04:19.

in his defence against nine counts of indecent assault.

:04:20.:04:22.

It's alleged the offences were committed over a period

:04:23.:04:24.

of almost 30 years, but today he told a jury,

:04:25.:04:27.

Our correspondent, Peter Harris, reports.

:04:28.:04:37.

Colin Gregg, the court has heard, has said the allegations are wicked

:04:38.:04:43.

lies. Today, he spoke directly to the

:04:44.:04:46.

jury. Under cross-examination, he was as,

:04:47.:04:51.

is it your edition that each of these components is either mistaken

:04:52.:04:56.

or lying? He replied that that was correct. He said that those making

:04:57.:05:01.

false allegations are doing so against a thoroughly decent man. He

:05:02.:05:05.

accepted that while he's a wealthy man, none of the complainant has

:05:06.:05:09.

made a claim compensation, and said he couldn't get any reason why any

:05:10.:05:14.

of them with choose to live. Colin Gregg told the jury, it's very

:05:15.:05:16.

difficult, ... The jury has been told of Colin

:05:17.:05:34.

Gregg's background. That he helped develop the family's bakery

:05:35.:05:37.

business, is a former head teacher, and had driven forward the Yellow

:05:38.:05:44.

Brick Road Charity appeal. He denies nine counts of indecent assault on

:05:45.:05:49.

four boys. He was advised by his own badge start, it did yet any stage

:05:50.:05:56.

assault any young boys? Colin Gregg replied no. The trial continues. --

:05:57.:06:01.

he was asked by his own barrister. Now, for many smokers, kicking

:06:02.:06:04.

the habit can be very difficult. But it's one of the best things

:06:05.:06:06.

you can do for your health - and if you're pregnant, it's vital

:06:07.:06:10.

for the wellbeing of your baby. Newcastle University researchers

:06:11.:06:13.

have discovered pregnant women are almost twice as likely to quit

:06:14.:06:14.

smoking if they're tested with a carbon monoxide monitor

:06:15.:06:17.

at their first midwife appointment. Here's our health

:06:18.:06:19.

reporter, Sharon Barbour. When Melanie fell pregnant with her

:06:20.:06:33.

little girl, Faith, she had been a heavy smoker for years.

:06:34.:06:40.

I started smoking at about 16. In skill, I smoked, I tried to impress

:06:41.:06:44.

the boys, it was the fashion in those days. Then I smoked until I

:06:45.:06:50.

was 40. Faith is her fifth child. She smoked

:06:51.:06:55.

all through her four previous pregnancies, as you didn't know the

:06:56.:06:58.

risks. I never ever thought, I just would

:06:59.:07:05.

carry on like I did. My parents both smoked.

:07:06.:07:08.

But something different happened with this pregnancy that changed

:07:09.:07:16.

everything. There was a breath analysis, my

:07:17.:07:20.

carbon monoxide was above a high-level. There was a red light

:07:21.:07:24.

going off, and he demonstrated what it does to your baby wants you

:07:25.:07:29.

smoke. And it is basically just strangling you, I do try to reach

:07:30.:07:33.

for breath. And I'm thinking, that's frightening. That's the first time I

:07:34.:07:40.

come alleged icon in my head, visualised what it was doing to the

:07:41.:07:46.

little person in my side, you are basically constantly strangling that

:07:47.:07:49.

child. It is as carbon monoxide test the

:07:50.:07:53.

Newcastle University has found cutely helps pregnant mums to quit

:07:54.:07:55.

smoking. What we found was that an interview

:07:56.:08:03.

shown to make sure that all pregnant women were screened for carbon

:08:04.:08:05.

monoxide in early pregnancy, and then put in touch to help stop

:08:06.:08:11.

smoking if they were smokers helped to nearly double quit rates in

:08:12.:08:15.

pregnancy. There's evidence that smoking weed is to lighter birth

:08:16.:08:20.

weight, which leads to problems during pregnancy and birth and later

:08:21.:08:26.

in life. The team studied 40,000 mothers

:08:27.:08:32.

across the North East. Including 10,500 to smoke. The problem is

:08:33.:08:36.

called BabyClear, and from on-site Melanie, it clearly works. There are

:08:37.:08:40.

calls for the approach to be used more often across the country.

:08:41.:08:44.

Sherrin joins me now. Surely now everybody knows smoking can't be

:08:45.:08:50.

good for the baby, why has this worked so well?

:08:51.:08:54.

We hear advice about things like this so often, it now many people to

:08:55.:09:00.

note no longer listen to it. In this, the pregnant mother is taken

:09:01.:09:04.

aside by the midwives and really explains what the smoking is doing

:09:05.:09:10.

to the baby. So that has an impact, really, clearly, one explained. And,

:09:11.:09:14.

of course, the carbon monoxide monitor.

:09:15.:09:19.

The monitor has a big impact? They can test, they can see the

:09:20.:09:24.

reading on the monitor. Melanie had a reading of 24, very high. She can

:09:25.:09:29.

see that and then see the carbon monoxide gas, it is explained how

:09:30.:09:34.

that can damage the baby. A smaller birth weight, potentially death for

:09:35.:09:38.

the baby. And behavioural problems, they are at a higher risk later on

:09:39.:09:42.

in life. Another great thing from Melanie was that she was able to

:09:43.:09:45.

count the savings. She was working around 30 a day, at least ?10 a day

:09:46.:09:51.

she was saving, she said, Hugh was really happy to be saving money and

:09:52.:09:52.

not has smoked during pregnancy. A 15-year-old girl has pleaded not

:09:53.:09:57.

guilty to the murder of seven-year-old Katie Rough

:09:58.:09:59.

in York last month. Katie was found with serious

:10:00.:10:01.

injuries in the Woodthorpe area of the city and died

:10:02.:10:03.

later in hospital. The teenager made a 20-minute

:10:04.:10:05.

appearance by video link Campaigners fighting to save beds

:10:06.:10:07.

at a Northumberland cottage hospital have accused NHS bosses of failing

:10:08.:10:15.

to consider alternatives The plan to permanently

:10:16.:10:17.

shut the 12-bed ward at the Rothbury Community Hospital

:10:18.:10:24.

has already sparked protest marches and a

:10:25.:10:26.

4000-signature petition. But this afternoon NHS managers told

:10:27.:10:28.

a consultation meeting Our political correspondent

:10:29.:10:30.

Luke Walton joins us from Rothbury. Esprit is a geographically isolated,

:10:31.:10:48.

and it also has a lot of older people. -- Rothbury is too

:10:49.:10:55.

graphically isolated. It is said the facility used by vulnerable people

:10:56.:10:59.

is so important. Campaigners gathered today to put that message

:11:00.:11:04.

across to NHS managers. They are meeting behind me for the second

:11:05.:11:07.

time to plot their next step in the campaign. The area's Clinical

:11:08.:11:12.

Commissioning Group say the underuse of this award was not a efficient

:11:13.:11:19.

use of scarce NHS resources. When we looked at the exhibiting

:11:20.:11:23.

over the last few years, we see the beds are being used less and less.

:11:24.:11:28.

There are nurses and staff around for beds that are empty. With the

:11:29.:11:31.

pressures on the NHS, it doesn't make sense to have a resource that

:11:32.:11:35.

is just not being used its full potential. When the halve look to

:11:36.:11:38.

the options going forward, realistically, what we want to do is

:11:39.:11:42.

use is building for the NHS and get more services there, but that won't

:11:43.:11:46.

be, as far as we can see, overnight beds.

:11:47.:11:51.

Whitney is hospital campaigner David Blackburn. Does it make sense to run

:11:52.:11:58.

a ward that is hast empty at a time when NHS cash is so tight?

:11:59.:12:05.

It make sense to the CCG. Because, obviously, financial resources are

:12:06.:12:09.

strapped at the moment. But what you have to consider, as far as Rothbury

:12:10.:12:12.

amenity hospitals concerned, is that these beds are required for the

:12:13.:12:17.

local community. By Justin Rothbury, but the surrounding area. As you

:12:18.:12:23.

said earlier, there are many vulnerable people. We have a

:12:24.:12:26.

population of about 5000 here and Rothbury, of whom 4500 signed the

:12:27.:12:35.

petition to save our beds. What would be the human impact of

:12:36.:12:39.

the closure, and what you think is the alternative?

:12:40.:12:42.

One of the major human impact of the closure is that families, loved ones

:12:43.:12:49.

of people who are in acute beds and had to go to other hospitals have to

:12:50.:12:55.

make that journey all the way over there. Sometimes without the

:12:56.:12:58.

facility of... Do you think there's and

:12:59.:13:01.

alternative? I did. The alternative is what we're

:13:02.:13:07.

calling option six. In the CCG's documents, they had five options. Of

:13:08.:13:11.

which one, in reality, is the only one they're going for.

:13:12.:13:16.

You think these beds have a future? Absolutely. I am convinced of that.

:13:17.:13:21.

That we need these beds in the local community for palliative care, and

:13:22.:13:27.

of life care, respite and four post operative care. Anything that's

:13:28.:13:30.

solution locally. Thank you. This consultation

:13:31.:13:37.

continues into April. We have another public meeting tonight and

:13:38.:13:40.

next month, and public feeling running very high.

:13:41.:13:42.

The Princess Royal was in Newcastle today.

:13:43.:13:43.

Princess Anne - who's the patron of the Citizens Advice Bureau -

:13:44.:13:46.

met volunteers from the organisation, which recently

:13:47.:13:48.

The city is currently celebrating the 800th

:13:49.:13:54.

anniversary of the Mayoralty and the Freemen of Newcastle.

:13:55.:13:59.

Windlestone Hall in County Durham is back on the market,

:14:00.:14:01.

Durham County Council was criticised in an auditors' report

:14:02.:14:07.

for selling the Grade II listed building in 2011 for ?241,000.

:14:08.:14:12.

The council said at the time that, with the upkeep of the hall costing

:14:13.:14:16.

?100,000 a year, the price was a good one.

:14:17.:14:18.

It later emerged that potential buyer William Davenport had used

:14:19.:14:20.

fake documents in his mortgage applications for the Hall.

:14:21.:14:24.

He was jailed for six years for fraud.

:14:25.:14:28.

Newcastle's Dance City has announced plans to open

:14:29.:14:30.

Two new dance studios will be part of a wider vision

:14:31.:14:34.

to create a cultural quarter in the city centre.

:14:35.:14:37.

Funding's been secured to develop the Old Fire Station building,

:14:38.:14:40.

which will house Dance City, along with a new site

:14:41.:14:44.

Plans have also been approved for a 400-seater auditorium,

:14:45.:14:47.

costing more than ?8 million, next to the Sunderland Empire.

:14:48.:14:53.

An iconic, concrete communications tower in Durham, 150 feet tall,

:14:54.:14:57.

is finally coming down, piece by piece.

:14:58.:14:59.

Designed by the famous architect Ove Arup, the mast -

:15:00.:15:03.

which used to tower over Durham's old Police Headquarters -

:15:04.:15:05.

was built back in 1968, and it's long since been overtaken

:15:06.:15:08.

But as Jim Knight reports, the Grade II listed structure isn't

:15:09.:15:14.

As our old Look North pictures show, the County Police Communications

:15:15.:15:21.

Tower was designed to be tall but slim, so it wouldn't block views

:15:22.:15:26.

But now, the carefully sculpted and crafted sections of concrete -

:15:27.:15:32.

so lovingly put together by Ove Arup's back in 1968 -

:15:33.:15:36.

are slowly coming back to Earth, piece by careful piece.

:15:37.:15:41.

It's costing nearly ?500,000 to deconstruct it and move it

:15:42.:15:44.

from the site of the new Aykley Woods housing department.

:15:45.:15:48.

Police say they had no choice, because it would have cost them lot

:15:49.:15:52.

more in lost revenue to leave it where it is.

:15:53.:15:56.

We're pleased to see the end of this particular project,

:15:57.:15:58.

it's costing about ?500,000, which is a lot of money.

:15:59.:16:01.

However, we do think it's good financial sense,

:16:02.:16:10.

because had we left it in place, we would have lost more than that

:16:11.:16:13.

We are fairly high up, where we stand.

:16:14.:16:17.

And when you drive around the area, it does become a bit of a focal

:16:18.:16:20.

point, you can see it from the motorways in the area.

:16:21.:16:23.

And I do think some people are quite attached to it.

:16:24.:16:26.

But of course, this is far from the end of the story for Durham's

:16:27.:16:29.

In just a few months' time, they are going to start work

:16:30.:16:33.

here to resurrect it alongside the new police headquarters.

:16:34.:16:35.

Items belonging to some of the most famous names in music are going up

:16:36.:16:53.

You could snap up John Lennon's sunglasses or a velvet jacket

:16:54.:16:58.

Charlotte Leeming's had a sneak preview.

:16:59.:17:04.

At Ryedale Auctioneers in Kirbymoorside, there's the usual

:17:05.:17:07.

antiques and furniture you'd expect to find.

:17:08.:17:10.

But in one corner of the room, there's a special collection

:17:11.:17:13.

which will have music lovers absolutely drooling.

:17:14.:17:16.

It's a rock and pop memorabilia treasure trove, with items from some

:17:17.:17:22.

the most famous artists of the 60s and 70s.

:17:23.:17:25.

Including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones,

:17:26.:17:27.

So, amongst the album covers, there are some

:17:28.:17:32.

Bit different, that spoon has been signed by John Lennon and Yoko.

:17:33.:17:41.

Lennon's signature has pretty much faded all away,

:17:42.:17:44.

But it's a bit different, and that's what people like.

:17:45.:17:51.

Yeah, did they use that to make their pasta at night?

:17:52.:17:54.

No prizes for guessing who these belong to.

:17:55.:17:58.

John Lennon's, but there's bit of a story behind

:17:59.:18:00.

The back story with those is that John lost his temper

:18:01.:18:06.

on the phone to someone, a producer or an agent or somebody,

:18:07.:18:09.

smashed them on the floor, and got thrown in the bin.

:18:10.:18:12.

So they have had a bit of repair work and a few new parts,

:18:13.:18:21.

And something that is just amazing is this picture here, behind us.

:18:22.:18:30.

And a Rolling Stones fan is going to love

:18:31.:18:32.

I think it's got to be one of my favourite lots of the sale.

:18:33.:18:43.

A life-size picture, would look fantastic in a music bar

:18:44.:18:45.

I've got 50 quid I could give even that, any good?

:18:46.:18:49.

Put a couple of naughts on and we'd be there!

:18:50.:18:51.

# I going way down south, way down south...#.

:18:52.:18:53.

Anything connected to such giants of the music world remains hugely

:18:54.:18:58.

Most items in this auction come from a private

:18:59.:19:01.

One of the priciest will be a black jacket owned by John Lennon.

:19:02.:19:05.

It's one of Ryedale's Auctioneers most exciting sales,

:19:06.:19:13.

and could make that private collector a fair bit

:19:14.:19:16.

Some great stuff there. Wasn't a fan at the time, love and now.

:19:17.:19:33.

It's an! On to the sport.

:19:34.:19:39.

Footballers aren't the only ones jetting off further afield. The

:19:40.:19:41.

The Premier League's leading referee is quitting his job to become

:19:42.:19:44.

Mark Clattenburg - from County Durham -

:19:45.:19:48.

was unveiled on the Saudi FA's live Twitter page, where he introduced

:19:49.:19:51.

himself by saying that Newcastle had the best team in England.

:19:52.:19:54.

The 41-year-old Magpies fan, who's widely considered to be one

:19:55.:19:56.

of the world's best referees, is expected to leave before the next

:19:57.:19:59.

Last year, he officiated the finals of Euro 2016,

:20:00.:20:02.

Clattenburg was in charge at the Emirates on Saturday

:20:03.:20:07.

Newcastle Falcons have signed French international centre

:20:08.:20:15.

The 30-year-old, who's won two European Champions Cups,

:20:16.:20:20.

may find himself involved in another if a resurgent Falcons side can

:20:21.:20:24.

Beating Northampton Saints at Kingston Park on Sunday

:20:25.:20:31.

A host of impressive statistics accompany Maxime Mermoz,

:20:32.:20:36.

who scored for Leicester last weekend,

:20:37.:20:38.

35 Test caps, the winner of two Heineken Cups and French Top 14

:20:39.:20:43.

finals with two clubs, including Toulon, where he played

:20:44.:20:46.

A notable addition to the squad, in a deal that's been

:20:47.:20:53.

I've been speaking with Maxime for maybe 18 months now.

:20:54.:20:58.

And he was probably the forgotten guy at Toulon whilst he was there.

:20:59.:21:02.

He was constantly voted by his colleagues as the best player,

:21:03.:21:07.

but they weren't picking him because, for some unknown reason,

:21:08.:21:10.

they were picking someone else in front of him.

:21:11.:21:12.

Can play 12, can play 13 equally well.

:21:13.:21:16.

And he's one of the few players that can genuinely do that.

:21:17.:21:19.

And is an incredibly talented footballer.

:21:20.:21:21.

Sunday's game against Northampton will see a return to home league

:21:22.:21:24.

action for Tonga captain Nili Latu, who's been out for nearly

:21:25.:21:28.

seven months with a potentially career-ending knee injury.

:21:29.:21:31.

My MCL hasn't been there for the last eight seasons.

:21:32.:21:35.

I done a bit of damage to it while I was paying in Japan.

:21:36.:21:38.

But didn't really bother me playing, so I finally went on tour

:21:39.:21:46.

with Tonga in the PNC, and finally it gave up and my

:21:47.:21:49.

It was probably the hardest seven months in my rugby career,

:21:50.:21:54.

but I'm glad I'm over that hurdle now, and just looking forward

:21:55.:21:57.

For the first time in years, the Falcons and their fans are able

:21:58.:22:03.

to look up the table, rather than nervously

:22:04.:22:05.

And if they win here on Sunday, they could move

:22:06.:22:10.

And having already won more the games this season

:22:11.:22:16.

And having already won more league games this season

:22:17.:22:19.

than during the whole of their previous campaign,

:22:20.:22:21.

that's certainly the aim for Falcons' joint-top try scorer,

:22:22.:22:23.

We want to be in the top six, that's what we're aiming for,

:22:24.:22:27.

But it's a long way off yet, so we've got to take

:22:28.:22:31.

But we know we are getting closer and we can do it.

:22:32.:22:36.

It started as a hobby for Rowan McCabe -

:22:37.:22:38.

knocking on people's doors and offering to write

:22:39.:22:40.

Now, a year on, he's been given an Arts Council grant

:22:41.:22:44.

to continue his work as Britain's only door-to-door poet.

:22:45.:22:49.

David Sillito met him on his rounds in Gateshead and Stockton.

:22:50.:22:55.

My name's Rowan and I'm a door to door poet.

:22:56.:23:03.

So I knock on strangers' doors and write poems for them.

:23:04.:23:05.

I joined him on his rounds, delivering poems in Stockton.

:23:06.:23:18.

I answered the door and there he was stood on his little

:23:19.:23:30.

I said I was busy, but he carried on anyway!

:23:31.:23:38.

How do you become a door-to-door poet?

:23:39.:23:42.

Well, first of all it was to do with boredom, really.

:23:43.:23:46.

You're just bored and you started knocking on people's doors, saying,

:23:47.:23:49.

I had this feeling that anyone could enjoy poetry.

:23:50.:23:53.

I probably am a little bit, but it works.

:23:54.:24:01.

The process always begins with a knock.

:24:02.:24:09.

His mother was German and life wasn't easy when he was growing up.

:24:10.:24:15.

That's my mum and a friend in D sseldorf.

:24:16.:24:18.

We had a lot hostilities, or my mum did.

:24:19.:24:20.

People would be spitting on her in the street and we had

:24:21.:24:23.

This is the poem that's been written for him.

:24:24.:24:26.

Speak - it is all about his habit of speaking out

:24:27.:24:29.

I think it's probably one of the highlights of my life.

:24:30.:24:51.

Like I was saying when we were there, it's moments just like that

:24:52.:24:59.

you just think, best job in the world.

:25:00.:25:01.

What could be better than that, you know?

:25:02.:25:05.

that's nice. Fantastic, yes. Great job, must as

:25:06.:25:26.

good as being a weatherman. Adenoma go on the doorstep, but

:25:27.:25:31.

would make an exception. Not again today, but the wind made it feel

:25:32.:25:36.

colder. This picture sums up the weather over the next few days.

:25:37.:25:41.

Reasonably quiet whether for most of us. It will feel fairly cloudy at

:25:42.:25:48.

times, but generally try and on the mild side. A lot of cloud around

:25:49.:25:51.

this evening, especially in the west, patchy rain here and there.

:25:52.:25:56.

Dying away through the night, Eastern areas drier with clearer

:25:57.:26:01.

skies. The winds lighter than the last few nights, so temperatures

:26:02.:26:05.

dropping lower. Outlying parts of Northumberland, may be called enough

:26:06.:26:10.

for a touch of frost in places, temperatures down to around three

:26:11.:26:15.

Celsius. Further west, temperatures up to seven. Tomorrow we start the

:26:16.:26:23.

dre with sunshine, bit more cloud in the West End the east. Spots of rain

:26:24.:26:29.

possible, but brightness through the day before the cloud built in from

:26:30.:26:33.

the west, through the course of the afternoon. Temperatures will reach

:26:34.:26:39.

10 Celsius at best, when is pretty light tomorrow, mostly from a

:26:40.:26:44.

southerly direction. A ridge of high pressure tomorrow, getting shunted

:26:45.:26:47.

out of the way. Pressure is saying to the east of us, to the North West

:26:48.:26:53.

there will be weather front around. Fairly weak as they come into the

:26:54.:26:58.

high-pressure. Sets us up for a cloudy picture into the weekend.

:26:59.:27:03.

Tomorrow, best of the brightness in the east, temperatures into double

:27:04.:27:09.

figures for many of us. Saturday, cloudy skies on the whole, patchy

:27:10.:27:15.

rain in the west especially. A brisk, south-westerly breeze through

:27:16.:27:19.

the first part of the weekend. Rain and Saturday nights, becoming more

:27:20.:27:22.

widespread. Sunday should seek most places dry and cloudy, temperatures

:27:23.:27:29.

are around 10 Celsius. Fairly quiet, all in all.

:27:30.:27:32.

Thank you very much. That's enough for now, but we're back with a late

:27:33.:27:39.

news and weather, aren't we? See you later, bye-bye.

:27:40.:27:54.

Two challenges await you today, and our genre is Landscape.

:27:55.:28:27.

The conditions are a wee bit challenging.
