In tonight's programme - a 16 year jail sentence for

:00:00.:00:10.

a former Oxfordshire scout leader found guilty of child sex offences.

:00:11.:00:13.

Also on the way: defying the odds - we meet the twin boys

:00:14.:00:16.

from Kidlington who survived a rare health condition.

:00:17.:00:26.

And join me in Banbury as I stepped into the world of virtual reality.

:00:27.:00:43.

A former Oxfordshire scout leader's been jailed for 16 years -

:00:44.:00:46.

after pleading guilty to child sex offences.

:00:47.:00:48.

Gary Lane, who's 52, admitted two counts of raping

:00:49.:00:50.

Gary Lane came to know these boys in 2013.

:00:51.:00:59.

The court was told he groomed them with toys

:01:00.:01:02.

He occasionally took them away on fishing trips.

:01:03.:01:07.

And, sometimes, they even stayed at his house overnight.

:01:08.:01:09.

But, it was between January, and also November 2015,

:01:10.:01:13.

that he raped both boys and committed other multiple

:01:14.:01:16.

They were aged just eight and ten at the time.

:01:17.:01:23.

He was also a scoutmaster but it's important to emphasise that neither

:01:24.:01:27.

After he was arrested and bailed, he fled to Scotland

:01:28.:01:32.

He'd missed two court dates during that time before he pleaded

:01:33.:01:41.

here at Oxfordshire Crown Court last month.

:01:42.:01:53.

Now, the officer in charge of this case, who can't be identified

:01:54.:01:55.

for operational reasons, gave me his reaction

:01:56.:01:57.

These victims were cruelly robbed of a normal childhood

:01:58.:02:00.

and even though the sentence could never repair the damage

:02:01.:02:03.

caused by his heedless actions, I hope that the victims

:02:04.:02:05.

and their families can now try to move forward with their lives,

:02:06.:02:08.

knowing that this man is finally behind bars.

:02:09.:02:10.

In victim impact videos played in court, both

:02:11.:02:12.

of the boys said they were sad, upset, and angry about

:02:13.:02:15.

A mother of one of the boys said that their lives had

:02:16.:02:19.

In sentencing him to 16 years in prison, Judge Patrick Eccles QC

:02:20.:02:23.

said there was something with Gary Lane's sexual thinking

:02:24.:02:28.

but he'd shown no remorse for his crimes.

:02:29.:02:34.

A teenager from Aylesbury's appeared in court,

:02:35.:02:37.

charged with murdering his own brother.

:02:38.:02:39.

Brandon Lavender, who's 18, is accused of fatally stabbing

:02:40.:02:41.

Brandon Lavender didn't enter a plea.

:02:42.:02:46.

Police have named a man who died when his car was hit by a train

:02:47.:02:56.

on a level crossing in the Cotswolds.

:02:57.:02:58.

who was 60, was in his landrover with two dogs when the vehicle

:02:59.:03:04.

was struck by a train in Frampton Mansell

:03:05.:03:06.

The incident's prompted calls from residents about the safety

:03:07.:03:11.

Network Rail say the number of deaths at level crossings

:03:12.:03:14.

A thief's been caught on camera at a children's

:03:15.:03:21.

farm in Oxfordshire - stealing ?3,000 worth of power tools.

:03:22.:03:23.

The break-in happened at Fairytale Farm in Chipping Norton,

:03:24.:03:26.

in the early hour of Wednesday morning - and was caught on CCTV.

:03:27.:03:31.

Angle grinders, drills and other power tools

:03:32.:03:33.

The farm was designed with disabled children in mind and relies

:03:34.:03:37.

Next tonight - the Oxfordshire parents who were told

:03:38.:03:43.

their twin boys only had a 50% chance of survival.

:03:44.:03:45.

Charlie and Hayley Lampshire from Kidlington

:03:46.:03:48.

say they're relieved their boys overcame

:03:49.:03:50.

risky health complications - after sharing one amniotic sac.

:03:51.:03:52.

Serena Martin has been to meet the family.

:03:53.:03:56.

In the Lampshire household there's two of everything -

:03:57.:03:59.

two toy monkeys, two sets of shoes and two identical baby boys.

:04:00.:04:05.

But due to a risky pregnancy there was a chance both wouldn't make it.

:04:06.:04:11.

We went from shock to utter joy, finding out we were going to have

:04:12.:04:24.

two and then finding out we were going to the twins like this, it was

:04:25.:04:26.

hard. "Mo Mo" or monoamniotic twins

:04:27.:04:28.

are incredibly rare. They share the same amniotic sack

:04:29.:04:31.

so there's a high risk of them strangling each other

:04:32.:04:34.

with their umbilical cord. There was nothing we could do and if

:04:35.:04:51.

anything had gone wrong, we necessarily know until we went for a

:04:52.:04:55.

scan. Not knowing was the hardest thing. They are quite tightly packed

:04:56.:05:03.

in the same sack. They were always touching. They looked like they were

:05:04.:05:10.

cuddled up together. They have always been very close, right from

:05:11.:05:11.

the beginning. Rowan and Blake

:05:12.:05:17.

defied the odds to be born healthy. And their parents hope their story

:05:18.:05:20.

will bring a glimmer They are much happier when they are

:05:21.:05:31.

together. Even when lying on their play mat, they search each other out

:05:32.:05:38.

and smile at each other. Growing up, we know they are going to be the

:05:39.:05:42.

closest they can be. It's just fantastic.

:05:43.:05:44.

A new type of prosthetic knee - which doesn't need

:05:45.:05:47.

expensive electronics - has been developed in Oxfordshire.

:05:48.:05:50.

The Very Good Knee enables amputees to easily walk up

:05:51.:05:53.

The developers - who are based at the Culham Science Centre -

:05:54.:05:57.

say they're frustrated that the NHS isn't using them -

:05:58.:06:01.

Michael lost his leg in a mining accident when he was just 25.

:06:02.:06:06.

He's had many prosthetics - but last year he had

:06:07.:06:09.

a pin inserted into his thigh bone to attach his new prosthetic leg to.

:06:10.:06:14.

He's one of the first people to try the Very Good Knee.

:06:15.:06:23.

It's the best I've ever had, it's a total life changer.

:06:24.:06:26.

The VGK is the only modern knee joint not

:06:27.:06:36.

controlled electronically - it uses a technology

:06:37.:06:38.

developed by engineers at the Culham Science Centre -

:06:39.:06:42.

"fluidics" which uses the body's own motion.

:06:43.:06:45.

The knee joint in itself is free to move that is for the swing phase

:06:46.:06:49.

when you walk and swing the leg through but when you put your weight

:06:50.:06:54.

down on the leg it stiffens up and give you full support.

:06:55.:06:58.

The absence of electronics means the leg is light

:06:59.:07:01.

and has a high centre of gravity - particularly useful for amputees

:07:02.:07:04.

I don't have to think what the soil is.

:07:05.:07:10.

George had his leg amputated in 2015,

:07:11.:07:17.

He used to be afraid to leave the house.

:07:18.:07:21.

Just the whole confidence of knowing that if I do

:07:22.:07:29.

stumble, it automatically goes into stumble recovery mode and I can

:07:30.:07:32.

recover myself without ending up on the floor.

:07:33.:07:38.

On the other leg, I used to fall over at least once a week.

:07:39.:07:42.

George is back riding his motorbike and walking his dogs.

:07:43.:07:46.

An independent study in Germany found that the Very Good Knee

:07:47.:07:50.

offers equal functionality to the electronic versions -

:07:51.:07:52.

Our knee joint should be made available through the NHS

:07:53.:07:59.

because they do deliver the function and performance that people need.

:08:00.:08:04.

At less than half the price of electronic knees,

:08:05.:08:07.

Orthomobility are hoping the NHS will take up its invention,

:08:08.:08:11.

enabling more amputees to get back on their feet.

:08:12.:08:15.

Schoolchildren in Banbury have been given the chance to get hands-on

:08:16.:08:23.

The high tech kit is now a permanent feature at the space studio -

:08:24.:08:29.

It was officially launched by the town's MP, Victoria Prentis.

:08:30.:08:35.

Jeremy Stern has been finding out more.

:08:36.:08:41.

This is a VR headset and it's connected to this computer

:08:42.:08:43.

From a classroom to a make-believe castle.

:08:44.:08:46.

Just about anything's possible with virtual reality.

:08:47.:08:51.

The barbarian hoardes, or the Vikings, are coming

:08:52.:08:53.

to get me and I have to defend the castle and shoot them with my

:08:54.:08:57.

There's now a virtual reality room

:08:58.:09:14.

at the Space Studio Academy, in Banbury.

:09:15.:09:18.

The pupils don't just play the games they create them.

:09:19.:09:28.

It's definitely like a more futuristic approach to life.

:09:29.:09:30.

Something that I wouldn't consider backing my secondary school but now

:09:31.:09:33.

I'm doing it, it's something I know that I really enjoy.

:09:34.:09:38.

Which will be, like, all the supports, all the stairs, even

:09:39.:09:43.

the floors, even the mesh on the floors.

:09:44.:09:45.

Until you actually start doing it, you learn so much and it's

:09:46.:09:47.

Today the local MP officially launched the suite.

:09:48.:09:54.

Like everyone else, Victoria Prentis enjoyed visiting the virtual world,

:09:55.:09:58.

but there's more to the experience than having fun.

:09:59.:10:02.

I've just been talking to the head about how they

:10:03.:10:04.

can use it for history, how they can use it for drama, how they can use

:10:05.:10:08.

it for all sorts of scientific exploration and it's also great that

:10:09.:10:13.

the children in the space studio who are into this sort of

:10:14.:10:17.

development and programming can use their skills to help

:10:18.:10:19.

Critics of virtual reality say it's a gimmick,

:10:20.:10:24.

Staff at the academy say their new suite is here to stay.

:10:25.:10:32.

A company in west Oxfordshire has successfully re-produced bones

:10:33.:10:40.

from one of the biggest marine reptiles of the Jurassic era,

:10:41.:10:42.

Half of the 1.7 metre skull of a plaieosaur was printed

:10:43.:10:54.

The company, based in Eynsham, used a CT scanner to map

:10:55.:10:58.

the complex skull fragments, discovered in Wiltshire.

:10:59.:10:59.

The 3D printers have produced hundreds of replica artefacts

:11:00.:11:02.

for places like the British Museum and the Ashmolean museum in Oxford.

:11:03.:11:04.

Police in Bicester have released a warning to motorists -

:11:05.:11:07.

after this driver managed to end up in a stream at Bicester village.

:11:08.:11:10.

Using the hashtag "soggy feet" on their Twitter page,

:11:11.:11:12.

the roads policing unit pointed out "When parking, please pay attention

:11:13.:11:15.

Sally Taylor is next with the rest of today's stories.

:11:16.:11:31.

I think it is mad but brilliant. There is no outside so it is a

:11:32.:11:39.

really great thing to do. Really admirable.

:11:40.:11:41.

16 years since it first opened to the public,

:11:42.:11:43.

Southampton's main West Quay shopping centre is now complete.

:11:44.:11:47.

Restaurants, a cinema and a bowling alley have been added

:11:48.:11:50.

It cost ?85 million and is being heralded

:11:51.:11:56.

as an example of the strength of the city's economic revival.

:11:57.:12:00.

But is it the type of growth the city needs?

:12:01.:12:03.

Here's our business correspondent, Alastair Fee.

:12:04.:12:10.

For years, Southampton was on catch up, a trend to it, shop and be

:12:11.:12:18.

entertained began long ago but now, West Quay, you can do all. We appeal

:12:19.:12:27.

right along the south coast. We can now compete with anything, whether

:12:28.:12:33.

it be shopping or leisure in the catchment. To complement the

:12:34.:12:36.

shopping centre, visitors have more than 20 new places to eat, is an

:12:37.:12:43.

complete the package. This will undoubtedly improve Southampton's

:12:44.:12:47.

retail and leisure appeal. That is good for quality-of-life and

:12:48.:12:50.

consumers spending but critics question whether this will bring

:12:51.:12:54.

sustainable long-term economic growth. If you just rely on retail,

:12:55.:13:02.

then you are not heading down a road of long-term sustained high value

:13:03.:13:06.

growth because that's not what retailers about. It is a perfectly

:13:07.:13:12.

respectable industry sector but not the sort of thing that we could be

:13:13.:13:18.

doing and other cities in the south are doing. The City Council has

:13:19.:13:23.

seven large development projects worth ?3 billion of investment

:13:24.:13:26.

opportunities. It says Harper that has been achieved already. A report

:13:27.:13:32.

on urban economic well-being by business advice is ranked

:13:33.:13:35.

Southampton third in England because growth. But another report ranked

:13:36.:13:42.

Southampton is the low-wage, low welfare city and on several other

:13:43.:13:46.

economic measures lags behind Portsmouth. We're trying to make the

:13:47.:13:49.

most of what we have got and trying to make Southampton a place where

:13:50.:13:54.

people want to come and visit and do business in, so people will post the

:13:55.:13:58.

company in a place for the employers want to live and spent time in. The

:13:59.:14:03.

fan that it was aimed at drawing in the crowds who would've travelled

:14:04.:14:07.

along the coast of the same experience. The city will need to

:14:08.:14:11.

look beyond is consumer spending if it is the really light up its

:14:12.:14:13.

long-term future. Imagine putting up with white

:14:14.:14:14.

noise all day, every day. That's what life is like for one

:14:15.:14:18.

in ten adults who endures tinnitus. Campaign groups who represent

:14:19.:14:23.

sufferers say many get a raw deal from their GPs,

:14:24.:14:25.

who often know little about it. Joe Campbell has met one teenager

:14:26.:14:28.

who is facing up to it. You mentioned you were

:14:29.:14:33.

having a ringing sound... Dean Fisher first began to be

:14:34.:14:35.

troubled by a constant ringing If you see an action film, an

:14:36.:14:51.

explosion or bomb just goes off, and then, the camera focuses on one

:14:52.:14:54.

person and they cannot see a thing or they cannot hear anything apart

:14:55.:15:00.

from ringing. That is what I feel like. All I can hear is just this

:15:01.:15:04.

whining in my ears. Tinnitus is not a condition

:15:05.:15:07.

in itself but a symptom resulting from a range of things,

:15:08.:15:09.

from ear infections through stress If you have hearing loss, your brain

:15:10.:15:25.

tries to fill in the gaps. The brain has to turn up again and becomes

:15:26.:15:29.

much more sensitive. It is very common that you would hear something

:15:30.:15:35.

that is a in the year went inner is struggling to hear. This is a

:15:36.:15:38.

waterfall, a waterfall, a bit more like white noise.

:15:39.:15:41.

Experts here at the Royal Berkshire can help with a range of therapies,

:15:42.:15:44.

from relaxation to devices that help mask the noise.

:15:45.:15:46.

But groups representing sufferers say that many feel let down

:15:47.:15:48.

by their first point of contact with the Health Service.

:15:49.:15:53.

They say GPs are often dismissive while unsympathetic.

:15:54.:15:59.

Awareness amongst GPs about tinnitus can be quite low.

:16:00.:16:06.

They may not know what to do when people reporting the test.

:16:07.:16:12.

They might not take it seriously and people are not often, therefore,

:16:13.:16:15.

But the need for proper medical help remains vital.

:16:16.:16:29.

You have been on the golf course today? I have, I met very talented

:16:30.:16:38.

juniors. We will start with football, though.

:16:39.:16:40.

The Reading boss, Jaap Stam, has picked up the Championship Manager

:16:41.:16:43.

Stam says it's a team effort although it is good to be recognised

:16:44.:16:47.

Reading managed four wins in January, two

:16:48.:16:50.

at home and two away, including their match

:16:51.:16:52.

against Bristol City, where they came from two down

:16:53.:16:54.

in the first half to clinch a 3-2 victory.

:16:55.:16:56.

A run of three wins at the end of the month helped catapult

:16:57.:16:59.

It was nice to win something on a personal note as well but I have not

:17:00.:17:09.

done by myself. I have got great staff with me who have helped me out

:17:10.:17:14.

and I've done a lot of work to make the team better, to get results. It

:17:15.:17:19.

is good I get a trophy but it is not only for me but for my team members.

:17:20.:17:22.

Well, Reading are now four games unbeaten as they head

:17:23.:17:24.

into their match tomorrow against ninth-placed Barnsley,

:17:25.:17:26.

who are the visitors at the Madjeski Stadium.

:17:27.:17:28.

Things are tight at the top of the play-off places so the Royals

:17:29.:17:31.

will be looking to consolidate that third place.

:17:32.:17:33.

Meanwhile, Brighton, currently second and just a point

:17:34.:17:35.

behind leaders Newcastle, are also at home and in with a good

:17:36.:17:38.

chance of grabbing points as they host struggling

:17:39.:17:40.

In the Premier League, a long trip north for Southampton.

:17:41.:17:43.

It's their last game before the League Cup final

:17:44.:17:46.

Saints have only managed one league win in 2017.

:17:47.:17:49.

They face a bottom-placed Sunderland, fighting

:17:50.:17:51.

Bournemouth play Man City on Monday night.

:17:52.:17:55.

In League 1, Swindon are the visitors at Bury

:17:56.:17:57.

while Oxford and the MK Dons go head-to-head.

:17:58.:18:00.

And in League 2, Portsmouth host Accrington Stanley.

:18:01.:18:05.

For many youngsters, next week is half term and junior

:18:06.:18:09.

golfers from Romsey Golf Club will be spending it

:18:10.:18:11.

But there'll be no relaxing because they're out to win

:18:12.:18:16.

They're one of three teams representing England

:18:17.:18:20.

in the Home Nations Final, which is being held

:18:21.:18:22.

I caught up with them this afternoon.

:18:23.:18:33.

Like a tea shop, Ramsey golf club's Junior team is flying high and

:18:34.:18:40.

tomorrow the flying off Portugal. You cannot get much higher than

:18:41.:18:45.

that. England is the next level. Top of the top. The England call-up came

:18:46.:18:50.

after months of tough competition, qualifying from the local league,

:18:51.:18:54.

winning regional finals at the top three place in the national finals.

:18:55.:18:59.

We came up against very good teams who pushed us as us as far as they

:19:00.:19:04.

could. We have managed to do it so it feels so much better than winning

:19:05.:19:09.

a few easy games. Like a hole in one, it is left them feeling on top

:19:10.:19:13.

of the world. It is pretty much a dream country. I have just wanted to

:19:14.:19:19.

represent England my whole life. It means everything. We have worked

:19:20.:19:23.

really hard as a team and it is my biggest achievement so I am very

:19:24.:19:27.

proud. And they are definitely in it to win it. At the end of the day, we

:19:28.:19:31.

have got to remember we are still trying to win, we're going there for

:19:32.:19:37.

a reason, so just want to win, but... Like a bunker shot, they know

:19:38.:19:41.

it will not be easy. They are up against the best from elsewhere in

:19:42.:19:48.

England, Scotland and Wales. We will just have to see how it goes. The

:19:49.:19:55.

young players aged 16 to 18 and with experience in the game ranging from

:19:56.:19:59.

two to 12 years now the pressure will be on but I hope the tight-knit

:20:00.:20:04.

team spirit will get them through. We have done very well and to go out

:20:05.:20:07.

there and beat the other teams would be such an achievement for such a

:20:08.:20:10.

small club like us. And beat the other teams would be such an

:20:11.:20:13.

achievement for such a small club like us. Unlike that perfect tricky

:20:14.:20:17.

putt, they are hoping to nail it. -- and the like.

:20:18.:20:19.

The Vendee Globe sailing hero Alex Thomson returns

:20:20.:20:21.

Celebrations are planned to welcome the ocean racer home

:20:22.:20:25.

after his second place finish in the race known as the world's

:20:26.:20:28.

Alex Thomson on board his racing yacht completed a single-handed

:20:29.:20:32.

non-stop circumnavigation of the globe in 74 days,

:20:33.:20:35.

Tomorrow, you'll be able to see Alex in person and this

At 10:15am, a parade of sail or flotilla will start out

:20:45.:20:48.

at Spitbank Fort in the Solent, heading into Portsmouth Harbour.

:20:49.:20:52.

You'll be able to view it from waterfront locations

in and around Portsmouth and Gosport - so Southsea's round

tower, Gunwharf Quays, the Gosport waterfront.

:20:58.:21:00.

At 11am, Alex will bring his boat, Hugo Boss, alongside

:21:01.:21:03.

You'll be able to see all of this from Falklands Gardens in Gosport,

:21:04.:21:08.

where a civic reception will be held at 11:20am.

:21:09.:21:12.

After the formalities are over, Alex will be meeting members

:21:13.:21:15.

The weather forecast in a moment but you'll already know it's not

:21:16.:21:26.

the sort of night to be out in the open unless you have to be.

:21:27.:21:30.

So respect is due to Andrew Fisher, who is spending ten nights in a tent

:21:31.:21:34.

in woods near Farnham to raise money for charity.

:21:35.:21:36.

It's not just the cold he has to contend with because Andrew

:21:37.:21:39.

is also continuing to hold down his day job as the head teacher

:21:40.:21:43.

So it's a quick wash in a bucket before heading off

:21:44.:21:48.

Let's join our reporter, Chrissy Sturt.

:21:49.:21:54.

I know you envy me, really. This very cold, very dark wood in Surrey.

:21:55.:22:11.

Why would you want to sleep in that tent at this time of year? Let's

:22:12.:22:18.

meet the man doing just that, the head of French heights. This is all

:22:19.:22:24.

do with raising money for a school in Malawi you are closely linked to?

:22:25.:22:28.

I am trying to raise enough money as I can for our partner school and

:22:29.:22:33.

inspire my own students to question the quality-of-life they take for

:22:34.:22:38.

granted. You hope this code to achieve? We look to buy desks,

:22:39.:22:44.

stationery, textbooks, contribute to building a house for the headteacher

:22:45.:22:47.

and give them support and friendship as well as teacher training and

:22:48.:22:52.

other equipment. Let's polls there in here from two of your students

:22:53.:22:55.

about what they make of this challenge. I think it is such a good

:22:56.:23:02.

idea because it is such an active way of helping raise money for them,

:23:03.:23:05.

it will make such a big difference. Amazing. I think it is mad but

:23:06.:23:13.

brilliant. It is snowing outside so it is really brave thing do. What is

:23:14.:23:21.

your life actually life they debate the moment? I have tried to strip it

:23:22.:23:27.

back to reflect the life of the phone teachers I consider friends in

:23:28.:23:31.

Malawi. I am carrying my food and water in, cooking over an open fire

:23:32.:23:36.

and live as basic life as I can as well as continuing to work

effectively is a headteacher. It has been pretty gruelling, it has been

:23:41.:23:44.

bitterly cold. Monday night, when it rained for four hours, was very

:23:45.:23:49.

difficult, looks like it will snow tonight, but the point of a

:23:50.:23:55.

challenge is that it is hard and that has inspired my students to

:23:56.:23:57.

think carefully about the things we take for granted. And what have you

:23:58.:24:02.

learned from this? It is easy to get tired, cooking over a fire takes a

:24:03.:24:07.

long time, and there is still peace and quiet that you can find in the

:24:08.:24:11.

world, even on a cold winter's night. We wish you well with your

:24:12.:24:16.

challenge. The weather forecast is up next, spare a thought for Andrew

:24:17.:24:19.

when you listen to that forecast and those temperatures.

:24:20.:24:26.

Give him an extra blanket, give them your cold! We have had some snow

:24:27.:24:34.

today in some places. Red Watch at Rushmoor Fire Station

:24:35.:24:36.

took this video of the light snow You may think it's chilly

:24:37.:24:40.

here in the south but, because of the colder temperatures,

:24:41.:24:43.

along the east coast of the UK and in Europe, Dorset has seen

:24:44.:24:46.

some unusual visitors. Waxwings were spotted in a car

:24:47.:24:53.

park off Ringwood Road in Poole by Ian Ballam,

:24:54.:24:56.

and it's caused excitement Through the course of the night, we

:24:57.:25:10.

are expecting a good deal of cloud, very cold indeed, and maybe some

:25:11.:25:17.

snow showers. It may give a dusting of snow in places first thing

:25:18.:25:21.

tomorrow morning. Where we do have clearing skies, the chance of frost

:25:22.:25:24.

in the countryside. A cold night with temperatures falling to

:25:25.:25:29.

freezing but down to minus one Celsius in the countryside. Quite a

:25:30.:25:33.

lot of cloud about tomorrow, very similar to the day, we will have

:25:34.:25:38.

that cold north-easterly wind, and the continuing snow flurries joined

:25:39.:25:41.

the cause of the day. Dry through the afternoon but the showers may

:25:42.:25:46.

well fall as rain rather than snow. Temperatures reach a high of 3-4 C.

:25:47.:25:52.

To the cause of the afternoon, we will hold onto that cloud cover and

:25:53.:25:59.

that bitterly cold wind. Tomorrow evening, the temperatures will fall

:26:00.:26:02.

away in the risk of snow showers. Temperatures will fall away the one

:26:03.:26:07.

or two Celsius in towns and cities and down to freezing in the

:26:08.:26:12.

countryside. The potential for snow showers first thing on Sunday

:26:13.:26:14.

morning but an improving picture in terms of the snow showers. But we

:26:15.:26:20.

still hold onto that cloud cover and back road east to north-easterly

:26:21.:26:26.

wind. With the cloud, it will feel bitterly cold. Sunday, temperatures

:26:27.:26:30.

will reach a high of five or six Celsius but feel more like two or

:26:31.:26:34.

three Celsius without wind chill. It stays cold in the next week. But we

:26:35.:26:39.

will start to see milder temperatures arrive into the middle

:26:40.:26:42.

part of next week. A good deal of cloud over this weekend, limited

:26:43.:26:46.

brightness, and a strengthening wind on Sunday, that wind will be very

:26:47.:26:53.

raw indeed. But the sunshine makes a return on Monday and Tuesday into

:26:54.:26:58.

next week, now in the way of dry conditions and less in the wake of

:26:59.:27:03.

showers, so fairly settled with high pressure not far away. Chilling,

:27:04.:27:11.

very chilling. Whatever you are doing this weekend, have a great

:27:12.:27:17.

one. We will be back on Monday. Enjoy yourselves.

:27:18.:27:23.
