Hello, good evening. stories on the BBC News Channel.

:00:09.:00:09.

Police investigating the death of a man in Whitley Bay have

:00:10.:00:12.

arrested five people on suspicion of his murder.

:00:13.:00:15.

Matthew Davis, who was 39, was found with fatal injuries

:00:16.:00:18.

at the Bermuda Guesthouse on North Parade late

:00:19.:00:20.

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

:00:21.:00:29.

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

:00:30.:00:32.

against pregnant women in the workplace.

:00:33.:00:34.

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

:00:35.:00:38.

than 50,000 women are forced out of their jobs each year

:00:39.:00:43.

because of being a mother or becoming pregnant.

:00:44.:00:46.

The Government said it was committed to removing barriers

:00:47.:00:49.

and was offering greater access to free child care.

:00:50.:00:54.

You would not think so in this day and age,

:00:55.:00:59.

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

:01:00.:01:01.

last year alone lost their jobs through feeling they were being

:01:02.:01:04.

That's one in nine women in the workforce.

:01:05.:01:10.

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

:01:11.:01:15.

There's a warning that more young blood donors need

:01:16.:01:17.

to come forward to protect the blood transfusion service.

:01:18.:01:21.

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

:01:22.:01:24.

unless numbers increase, future demand may not be met.

:01:25.:01:27.

Farah Smith's life was saved by donated blood.

:01:28.:01:33.

At 21 months she had surgery to remove

:01:34.:01:35.

She had 40 blood and platelet transfusions.

:01:36.:01:40.

Without them in her operation, she would never

:01:41.:01:42.

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

:01:43.:01:48.

In the year to March, more than half the

:01:49.:01:51.

donors in the north-east were aged 45 and over.

:01:52.:01:56.

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

:01:57.:01:59.

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

:02:00.:02:01.

We need those new donors, otherwise we won't

:02:02.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:06.

To do that they need to recruit 200,000 new

:02:07.:02:08.

Like Laura, whose blood is particularly valuable.

:02:09.:02:13.

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

:02:14.:02:16.

So it is used in emergencies and things like

:02:17.:02:24.

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

:02:25.:02:28.

And in tomorrow's Inside Out, we hear from donors who gave

:02:29.:02:30.

blood in Peterlee, about their experience

:02:31.:02:32.

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

:02:33.:02:42.

Thousands of people have attended BBC Radio Three's annual

:02:43.:02:44.

Free Thinking Festival at the Sage Gateshead this weekend.

:02:45.:02:48.

The station's been broadcasting music and debate during events

:02:49.:02:51.

featuring 100 speakers, including poet, Ian McMillan,

:02:52.:02:55.

and former hostage, now author, Terry Waite.

:02:56.:03:00.

It's a wonderful thing that BBC Radio Three will get out,

:03:01.:03:03.

meet ordinary people, give ordinary people

:03:04.:03:05.

a chance to question, and bring a different

:03:06.:03:08.

It's music, drama, speech, and we've been making our small

:03:09.:03:14.

contribution to the speech on Radio Three.

:03:15.:03:19.

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

:03:20.:03:23.

marmalade festival at Dalemain House near Penrith in Cumbria.

:03:24.:03:28.

The event began 12 years ago with just 60 entries.

:03:29.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:37.

Football, highlights from Middlesbrough's game at home

:03:38.:03:43.

to Manchester United are on Match of the Day in a few minutes,

:03:44.:03:46.

so quick with the remote if you don't want to know the score.

:03:47.:03:56.

Time for the region's weather. What's this wind blowing in for us?

:03:57.:03:59.

Hope you've had a good weekend, despite the weather being pretty

:04:00.:04:04.

OK, let's have a look at tonight, then.

:04:05.:04:07.

It is a drier story, especially across Cumbria.

:04:08.:04:09.

Yes, we will still see some of those showers drifting

:04:10.:04:12.

Still blustery, temperatures down to six or seven Celsius.

:04:13.:04:17.

Tomorrow morning, we see another band of rain make its way

:04:18.:04:20.

Now, the air behind this is a lot colder, it's also clearer.

:04:21.:04:25.

So brightening up, but feeling colder.

:04:26.:04:28.

I think temperatures lower than that by the end of the day.

:04:29.:04:32.

This is the air mass chart for Tuesday.

:04:33.:04:37.

You can see these lovely blue colours flooding

:04:38.:04:39.

So that's colder air, which will stick around on Tuesday

:04:40.:04:43.

and on Wednesday with the risk of some wintry showers.

:04:44.:04:48.

And here with Colin Briggs from early doors tomorrow.

:04:51.:04:53.

From the late team, have a peaceful night.

:04:54.:05:06.

Good evening. There is some rain coming into the southern half of the

:05:07.:05:12.

UK as we speak. I think by the end of the night it will have got into

:05:13.:05:16.

the Midlands and much of East Anglia as well. A bit of a breeze here as

:05:17.:05:22.

well. Some gusty winds and snow on the hills of Scotland. With all of

:05:23.:05:29.

that going on, it is not particularly cold overnight.

:05:30.:05:31.

Southern areas will hang on to double figures in many towns and

:05:32.:05:35.

cities. A bit of a messy picture for the start of the new week. The rain

:05:36.:05:39.

moves quickly eastwards across Scotland. For Northern England,

:05:40.:05:43.

Wales, the Midlands and South West it is a miserable start to the day.

:05:44.:05:50.

Brighter skies do follow along behind but with some showers. Wintry

:05:51.:05:53.

showers across the hills of

:05:54.:05:54.
