Just two months ago, the Government's Highways England

:00:56.:00:56.

began looking at cutting speed limits on the M1, which, in turn,

Today, few people would deny that pollution is an issue.

Separate research shows that in just one year,

:01:23.:01:26.

3,000 people across our region died after breathing dirty air.

We understand that air pollution is a significant

:01:30.:01:31.

risk to public health, on the scale of obesity,

transport and is committed to spending another ?290 million

York came into the away leg of the semifinal with a 2-1 lead.

:02:13.:02:18.

But Lincoln were the favourites, top of the National League and fresh

:02:19.:02:21.

from a run to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.

:02:22.:02:25.

And they took the lead in the 66th minute when Sean Raggett converted

A penalty was given and Scott Fenwick side

:02:46.:02:51.

:03:41.:03:45.

is going to be like for Hope you've had a lovely weekend. It

:04:02.:04:13.

will turn a lot colder over the next couple of days. As for tonight, not

:04:14.:04:17.

a dry story. We will see a few showers and it will be pretty

:04:18.:04:21.

blustery with strengthening south-westerly winds with lows of

:04:22.:04:25.

seven or eight Celsius. This band of rain pushes in tomorrow, clearing by

:04:26.:04:30.

the afternoon and things will brighten up nicely. It will feel a

:04:31.:04:33.

bit colder and still pretty breezy out there. Here is the air mass

chart for Tuesday. The orange colours are a distant memory and we

Goodbye. Good evening. There is some rain

:04:59.:05:14.

:05:15.:05:18.

of the night it will have got into the Midlands and much of East Anglia

:05:19.:05:22.

as well. A bit of a breeze here as well. Some gusty winds and snow on

the hills of Scotland. With all of that going on,
