is facing uncertainty tonight over its flagship Child

and Adult Heart Surgery Unit. It may have to be moved

:00:17.:00:19.

to the Royal Victoria Infirmary, if Newcastle is to continue

which hospitals can continue Newcastle's Freeman Hospital has

on the standards hospitals have to reach to be able

to continue complex surgery. But for Newcastle, one

:01:31.:01:32.

of the standards is a major concern. And that has major implications,

hospital is enormous. This will be down to local hospitals

to work out and local hospital trusts to work out how this might be

actually have a say. Now, he was Ashington's

favourite son. And today - the bronze

statue of footballing legend Jackie Milburn,

was officially unveiled Two generations down the line,

:07:32.:07:32.

Jackie's granddaughter, and his great-grandchildren

:07:33.:07:43.

were on hand to help Proud moments, of course,

:07:44.:07:45.

but it seems, when you're still at primary school,

:07:46.:07:51.

being related to a footballing legend isn't as easy

:07:52.:07:54.

as it might seem. What do the other kids

:07:55.:07:57.

say at school, then? They say, "Is he really?"

:07:58.:08:00.

And they don't believe us! I asked them and they

:08:01.:08:03.

say, "Is he really?" And then they just

:08:04.:08:09.

don't believe her! Yeah.

:08:10.:08:11.

Yeah. His goals helped Newcastle lift

:08:12.:08:13.

the FA Cup three times in the '50s. He left his indelible mark

on Ashington, Newcastle United and the whole of the footballing

world, as much for his humility and grace as for his undoubted

:08:29.:08:31.

prowess on the pitch. He worked at the pit

:08:32.:08:35.

on a Saturday morning. He'd come out of the pit,

:08:36.:08:37.

had a cigarette, got the bus to Newcastle and played for Newcastle,

:08:38.:08:42.

knocked a few goals in, came home, went to bed for a shift

:08:43.:08:46.

on Sunday night. That's the type of character

:08:47.:08:49.

we're talking about - Are you proud of him?

:08:50.:08:51.

BOTH: Yeah! Why are you proud of him?

:08:52.:08:59.

Because, um... Well, he played very

:09:00.:09:01.

well at football. He scored lots of goals

:09:02.:09:02.

and he did very, very well. And so, after a brief

:09:03.:09:08.

spell out the limelight, "Wor Jackie" is back

:09:09.:09:11.

where he rightfully belongs - at the heart of his home town -

where his memory is Jim Knight,

BBC Look North, Ashington. That's it from me tonight. Here is

:09:18.:09:29.

the weather forecast. Hello. It was pretty chilly out and

:09:30.:09:41.

about today and Cumbria got the best deal. As a mention of snow in the

:09:42.:09:47.

forecast more on that in a second. Tomorrow yes we will see wintry

:09:48.:09:48.

showers, fairly cloudy, and it's showers, fairly cloudy, and it's

:09:49.:09:53.

going to be told. Chilly tonight, temperatures falling below freezing,

:09:54.:09:57.

and tomorrow morning, yes, there's a lot of cloud around, I used to the

:09:58.:10:01.

west, this is where we are likely to see the best of the brightness,

:10:02.:10:04.

across Cumbria, however eastern parts I'm afraid it will be pretty

:10:05.:10:08.

great, pretty murky with showers continuing to come in on what will

:10:09.:10:11.

be a pretty chilly easterly breeze. Highs of about four Celsius.

:10:12.:10:16.

Tomorrow night come into Saturday, it yes, cold, still lose a map, dry

:10:17.:10:24.

at this stage but showers start drifting in from the east, sleet,

:10:25.:10:28.

snow, on high ground, and potentially falling to lower levels

:10:29.:10:35.

as well. As a result of this weather front can hear it comes, slowly

:10:36.:10:39.

making its way in a cross towards the west, so first things Thursday

:10:40.:10:43.

morning we could see a dusting of snow to lower levels, but I don't

:10:44.:10:47.

think we need to get too excited about building snowmen, cat kind of

:10:48.:10:51.

thing, it will quickly turn to rain across the east but high ground, and

:10:52.:10:54.

the Pennines, the Cheviots, the Cumbrian fells, we are likely to see

:10:55.:10:59.

a bit more that snow. A change on the way over the next few days, less

:11:00.:11:03.

cold, then, as we head towards next week,

:11:04.:11:07.

will turn a bit less cold again. All the way up seven

:11:08.:11:08.
