Hello, good evening. Jose Mourinho jumping for joy --

:00:00.:00:12.

Police investigating the death of a man in Whitley Bay

:00:13.:00:15.

have arrested five people on suspicion of murder.

:00:16.:00:18.

Matthew Davis, who was 39, was found with injuries

:00:19.:00:20.

at the Bermuda guesthouse on North Parade on Friday evening.

:00:21.:00:24.

Five men, aged between 26 and 65, are currently in custody helping

:00:25.:00:29.

The Government's been urged to do more to tackle discrimination

:00:30.:00:36.

against pregnant women in the workplace.

:00:37.:00:40.

Wearside MP and Shadow Minister for Public Health, Sharon Hodgson,

:00:41.:00:43.

told BBC's Sunday Politics that more than 50,000 women are forced

:00:44.:00:48.

out of their jobs each year because of being a mother

:00:49.:00:51.

The Government said it was committed to removing barriers,

:00:52.:00:57.

and was offering greater access to free child care.

:00:58.:01:00.

You would not think so in this day and age,

:01:01.:01:04.

100 years after women getting the vote, but 54,000 women

:01:05.:01:07.

last year alone lost their jobs through feeling they were being

:01:08.:01:09.

That is one in nine women in the workforce.

:01:10.:01:13.

Now, if that was in Parliament that would be 21 of us.

:01:14.:01:19.

There's a warning that more young blood donors need

:01:20.:01:23.

to come forward to protect the blood transfusion service.

:01:24.:01:25.

The BBC's Inside Out programme's been told that

:01:26.:01:27.

unless numbers increase, future demand may not be met.

:01:28.:01:29.

Farah Smith's life was saved by donated blood.

:01:30.:01:37.

At 21 months she had surgery to remove

:01:38.:01:41.

Without them in her operation she would never

:01:42.:01:48.

Blood supply at present is adequate, but donors are getting older.

:01:49.:01:53.

year to March more than half blood donors in the north-east were aged

:01:54.:01:58.

Over the last decade we have seen a 40% fall in the number

:01:59.:02:03.

of new donors coming forward to donate for the first time.

:02:04.:02:07.

We need those new donors, otherwise we won't

:02:08.:02:09.

be able to meet the demands of hospitals in the future.

:02:10.:02:11.

To do that they need to recruit 200,000 new

:02:12.:02:16.

Like Laura, whose blood is

:02:17.:02:19.

Only 7% of the population have O negative, and that can be

:02:20.:02:23.

So it is used in emergencies and things like

:02:24.:02:29.

that, if they don't have time to find out people's blood type.

:02:30.:02:33.

from donors who gave blood in Peterlee,

:02:34.:02:36.

about their experience of

:02:37.:02:37.

And Inside Out is on 7.30 tomorrow evening here on BBC1.

:02:38.:02:47.

Judges have spent two weeks tasting 3,000 entries at the annual

:02:48.:02:51.

marmalade festival at Dalemain House near Penrith in Cumbria.

:02:52.:02:53.

The event began 12 years ago with just 60 entries.

:02:54.:02:57.

It's now grown to include entries from around the world,

:02:58.:03:00.

including Japan and Australia, with this year's winner a farmer's

:03:01.:03:03.

Organisers say the festival is helping to save

:03:04.:03:08.

In that 3000 you have so much variety, so many diverse

:03:09.:03:17.

It is an exciting time for marmalade because rather than going downhill

:03:18.:03:22.

and not being eaten, contrary to the suggestion,

:03:23.:03:25.

actually it is becoming more and more popular and being used

:03:26.:03:28.

in so many interesting and unusual ways.

:03:29.:03:31.

Football, and Middlesbrough were in action today for the

:03:32.:03:33.

first time since manager Aitor Karanka left the club.

:03:34.:03:36.

So how did caretaker Steve Agnew's first game in charge end?

:03:37.:03:39.

Easy start to life as a Premier League manager, Steve?

:03:40.:03:48.

The rookie's mission - pit your wits against one

:03:49.:03:53.

Early signs were good, but you need to defend better

:03:54.:03:59.

A Jesse Lingard screamer doubled the lead half way

:04:00.:04:09.

Middlesbrough hadn't scored in the Premier League since January -

:04:10.:04:17.

The softest of goals to gift-wrap three points.

:04:18.:04:38.

Mourinho not hanging around to shake hands with his rival at the end.

:04:39.:04:43.

Both sets of players involved in ugly scenes

:04:44.:04:45.

Middlesbrough remain next to bottom and are now five points from safety.

:04:46.:04:55.

So it's been breezy, but you might have felt the warmth

:04:56.:04:58.

Let's see what's coming next with Owain Wyn Evans.

:04:59.:05:02.

We have seen some pretty heavy rain today across Cumbria,

:05:03.:05:12.

and a weather warning in force up until recently.

:05:13.:05:15.

Tomorrow we will see the rain clearing, turning

:05:16.:05:17.

Wherever we are we will really notice that chill.

:05:18.:05:20.

Overnight, a few fleeting showers, still quite breezy, actually.

:05:21.:05:22.

There will be a lot of dry weather around, cetainly drier

:05:23.:05:24.

across western parts, with lows of six Celsius

:05:25.:05:27.

A blusterly start tomorrow, further outbreaks of rain push

:05:28.:05:32.

across towards the south-east and behind this we're into this

:05:33.:05:36.

cooler air with temperatures probably reaching 10 Celsius,

:05:37.:05:39.

still blustery but turning colder later with the risk

:05:40.:05:42.

Feeling pretty chilly, then, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

:05:43.:05:49.

And that's our summary so far this Sunday.

:05:50.:05:51.

I'll have an update here at around 22.20.

:05:52.:05:53.

Hello. For most of March so far it has felt quite mild and springlike

:05:54.:06:19.

but we are in for a bit of a shock next week as we will have a blast of

:06:20.:06:25.

Arctic air across the UK making it feel much cooler than it has of late

:06:26.:06:29.

with wintry showers and a return to overnight frosts for a while. The

:06:30.:06:33.

pressure chart shows more weather fronts pushing into many central and

:06:34.:06:36.

southern parts of the country this evening and overnight it will turn

:06:37.:06:40.

quite wet across parts of

:06:41.:06:41.
