Tonight in the South West, increasing anger over

:00:00.:00:00.

Why should a Devon child be worth that much less than somebody

:00:00.:00:13.

Critics say a plan to make funding fairer doesn't add up and many

:00:14.:00:21.

Also tonight - removing eco boilers from social housing.

:00:22.:00:27.

They're being taken away after elderly tenants struggled

:00:28.:00:29.

to fill them with sacks of wood pellets.

:00:30.:00:34.

At this beauty spot in Exeter, a swan has been killed

:00:35.:00:37.

in what police believe was a deliberate

:00:38.:00:38.

A new way is needed, you just can't see it!

:00:39.:00:45.

And the amateur actors hoping that they'll soon be

:00:46.:00:50.

Headteachers in Devon and Cornwall are writing to parents asking them

:00:51.:01:15.

to get involved in a campaign to change the way

:01:16.:01:17.

After years of criticism that children in the South West receive

:01:18.:01:23.

less money than those elsewhere the Government has introduced

:01:24.:01:26.

a new way of working out how much each child will get.

:01:27.:01:29.

Unions say this will actually leave the region more

:01:30.:01:31.

In Devon, the county council says almost two thirds

:01:32.:01:35.

Our political reporter Anna Varle has more.

:01:36.:01:43.

Does anyone remember the difference between the people that sat

:01:44.:01:45.

on either side of the room when we are having the debate?

:01:46.:01:49.

It's never too young to get engaged in current affairs.

:01:50.:01:52.

But this school is amongst hundreds across the region which is taking

:01:53.:01:59.

politics out of the classroom and direct to Westminster.

:02:00.:02:02.

In Devon, pupils like me are currently worth ?290 less

:02:03.:02:05.

To make it fairer, the government is looking at changing

:02:06.:02:09.

They say we will be better off by a little bit.

:02:10.:02:15.

What we're trying to do is make sure that every single child,

:02:16.:02:23.

wherever they're growing up in England gets the same amount

:02:24.:02:25.

of funding, with then top up in relation to additional needs,

:02:26.:02:28.

whether it's in relation to deprivation which has been based

:02:29.:02:30.

on out of date data up until now, or indeed additional funding

:02:31.:02:33.

But Devon County Council is one local authority which has

:02:34.:02:37.

And it says far from being better off, 61.9%

:02:38.:02:44.

Why should a Devon child be worth that much less than somebody

:02:45.:02:49.

The government's got to do something about it.

:02:50.:02:55.

Unions claim the formula, coupled with increasing

:02:56.:02:57.

costs such as inflation, could lead to the region's schools

:02:58.:03:00.

being ?105 million worse off in the next three years.

:03:01.:03:04.

Which will result in fewer teachers and larger class sizes.

:03:05.:03:10.

We've cut right the way back in recent years anyway.

:03:11.:03:13.

The only thing left to cut unfortunately will be staffing

:03:14.:03:16.

That's why headteachers across Devon and Cornwall are sending out letters

:03:17.:03:21.

to parents asking them to get involved and write to their MP.

:03:22.:03:26.

You can't sit there and say that it's the school's job to do

:03:27.:03:29.

Your children go over, so you've got a bit of a responsibility

:03:30.:03:34.

to make sure you support the school your children go to.

:03:35.:03:36.

The more pressure we put on, hopefully the more

:03:37.:03:38.

Even Devon's Tory MPs are threatening to oppose

:03:39.:03:45.

If these proposals are adopted, we're going to have 15

:03:46.:03:49.

primary schools gaining, 20 losing out, and all the secondary

:03:50.:03:51.

This is clearly neither fair nor acceptable.

:03:52.:03:55.

The government says that under this new formula,

:03:56.:03:57.

schools in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset will benefit.

:03:58.:04:01.

The consultation runs until the 22nd of March,

:04:02.:04:05.

and it's keen to hear from parents, schools, governors -

:04:06.:04:07.

Our Political Editor Martyn Oates is here now.

:04:08.:04:14.

How have we arrived at a situation where Devon is even worse off?

:04:15.:04:22.

We should be clear that this does vary from one local authority to

:04:23.:04:28.

another, and from school to school. So Cornwall Council for instance,

:04:29.:04:32.

says that overall Cornwall would gain from this. But as we heard

:04:33.:04:36.

there, there will be winners and losers among individual schools. A

:04:37.:04:40.

similar situation in Somerset. In Devon, which is an authority which

:04:41.:04:45.

historically has been one of the worst funded in the country, clearly

:04:46.:04:51.

the council believes overall it will be worse off. As one Devon MP said

:04:52.:04:55.

recently in Parliament, after all the years of campaigning to change

:04:56.:04:58.

this, it has ever anticipated that when the changes finally came, Devon

:04:59.:05:05.

would be worse off. And Devon is far from alone. Looking across the

:05:06.:05:10.

country, looking across the Commons more particularly, there are lots of

:05:11.:05:13.

furious MPs who say the outcome for their schools in real areas is less

:05:14.:05:18.

fair. Is the government likely to change its mind? The rural MPs, tend

:05:19.:05:23.

to be Conservative MPs, so it is not great for the government to have a

:05:24.:05:27.

lot of discontented MPs on its own backbenchers. Many of the same MPs

:05:28.:05:30.

also very angry at the moment about the level of grant that the

:05:31.:05:34.

government's offering to local authorities, and that'll be signed

:05:35.:05:38.

off in a couple of weeks. The focus for

:05:39.:05:51.

a lot of this is something called the rural fair share group, which is

:05:52.:05:55.

now almost entirely run by MPs from Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. As the

:05:56.:05:57.

Prime Minister said at premises questions this week, this is still

:05:58.:05:59.

only a consultation, not the final offer. Over the last few years we

:06:00.:06:02.

have seen all of these MPs making a fuss about this kind of thing,

:06:03.:06:04.

threatening rebellions and very often have to say, have been brushed

:06:05.:06:07.

off, sometimes quite briskly by the government. The question is whether

:06:08.:06:09.

this time they can be more successful. Thank you very much.

:06:10.:06:12.

And the debate continues in this weekend's Sunday Politics,

:06:13.:06:14.

that's at 11 o'clock on Sunday Morning here on BBC One

:06:15.:06:17.

with guests Peregrine Mears, Sheryl Murray and Gareth Derrick.

:06:18.:06:20.

A housing association is removing eco boilers from some

:06:21.:06:22.

of its properties after complaints they were unsuitable for the elderly

:06:23.:06:25.

The boilers need to be filled with sacks of wood pellets,

:06:26.:06:29.

but some residents struggled to lift the bags.

:06:30.:06:32.

The equipment had also broken down repeatedly.

:06:33.:06:35.

Westward Housing in North Devon says its dealing with

:06:36.:06:39.

Tony Walker and his wife Jen, who is 68, dread having

:06:40.:06:53.

But if it runs out, their central heating stops working.

:06:54.:07:01.

Jen now has a bad back, and says the couple just can't cope with it.

:07:02.:07:06.

It's not very easy at all, especially if you're

:07:07.:07:09.

not well or, you know, I suffer with asthma and breathing.

:07:10.:07:14.

And, you know my husband, he's not very well.

:07:15.:07:20.

Well, it's not appropriate because we're too old.

:07:21.:07:27.

We're just too old now to be able to cope with it.

:07:28.:07:32.

There are around six Wesward Housing tenants who are either disabled,

:07:33.:07:45.

have limited mobility or are elderly, who have had these

:07:46.:07:48.

There have also been complaints about them not working properly.

:07:49.:07:51.

Up the road, tenant Robert Smith's house now has

:07:52.:07:53.

No one told us what we're going to have to do

:07:54.:08:02.

No one said, you're going to have to fill it up day or every other

:08:03.:08:07.

day, and there was no way would have managed to ash it out once a week.

:08:08.:08:10.

And there was no consultation with us all.

:08:11.:08:20.

In a statement, Westward Housing told us...

:08:21.:08:25.

The manufacturer, Warmflow, told us...

:08:26.:08:39.

Back at the Walkers, and Tony Walker is pretty clear

:08:40.:08:41.

about what he wants done with his wood pellet boiler.

:08:42.:08:45.

I don't want it on site, because it's no use to us.

:08:46.:08:55.

A swan has been killed in Exeter in what police say appears

:08:56.:08:58.

It's the second swan to have been found dead in the past week.

:08:59.:09:03.

The news has shocked and angered people who regularly

:09:04.:09:05.

The birds are a protected species and its' illegal to harm them.

:09:06.:09:11.

Our Environment Correspondent Adrian Campbell reports.

:09:12.:09:16.

Exeter's Swans are familiar and popular site, but in recent days

:09:17.:09:26.

there have been concerns for their welfare after two deaths. On

:09:27.:09:30.

Wednesday this week, Devon and Cornwall police say the body of a

:09:31.:09:34.

swan was found close to this footbridge. Exeter City Council have

:09:35.:09:37.

also told us that on Saturday, the body of a swan was taken to the

:09:38.:09:41.

offer is not far from here, and it is understood that the swan had been

:09:42.:09:47.

decapitated. The RSPB says suggestions that the birds may have

:09:48.:09:50.

been deliberately attacked are disturbing. We don't quite know what

:09:51.:09:53.

has happened here. These animals can be attacked, obviously by other

:09:54.:09:59.

creatures, like foxes. But if it is a person that has done this, then

:10:00.:10:03.

this is a really heinous crime, and it does unfortunately happened to

:10:04.:10:07.

Swans. They do get attacked. Of course, it is against the law. In

:10:08.:10:12.

wild birds in the UK are protected under the wildlife countryside act,

:10:13.:10:16.

so people do see any crimes against bugs, please report it to the police

:10:17.:10:22.

-- if people do. People who live here say they are concerned. I think

:10:23.:10:27.

it's sad and disgusting behaviour. However, it is very unusual.

:10:28.:10:32.

Everyone ranter care about the wildlife, and the majority of people

:10:33.:10:37.

coexist very well. Defra has been informed about what happened, and

:10:38.:10:41.

went a's incident has been reported as a crime. Police are appealing for

:10:42.:10:42.

information from the public. Potholes are the curse

:10:43.:10:47.

of motorists across the region, as council's struggle to keep up

:10:48.:10:49.

with the backlog of repairs. In Devon the local authority has

:10:50.:10:52.

turned to volunteers to help patch up the roads in the first scheme

:10:53.:10:55.

of its kind. Jenny Kumah has been to see

:10:56.:10:57.

what progress they're making, but not everyone is happy

:10:58.:11:00.

with the idea. Ken lives in the village

:11:01.:11:06.

of Halberton, and he's part of the yellow army

:11:07.:11:08.

of volunteer road wardens. He's got training and insurance

:11:09.:11:11.

from the county council, Some people say it's double

:11:12.:11:13.

taxation because, you know, we pay our council tax,

:11:14.:11:17.

all this should be done. The trouble is, when the money

:11:18.:11:21.

won't go round, the money is being spent on childcare

:11:22.:11:23.

and adult social care, So, maintaining the roads

:11:24.:11:26.

is an expensive business, especially in Devon,

:11:27.:11:33.

which has the largest road According to the county council,

:11:34.:11:35.

it would cost ?750 million to complete the backlog of repairs

:11:36.:11:41.

and to get the roads This year, the council

:11:42.:11:44.

got ?45 million from But the council says that it

:11:45.:11:50.

needs around ?15 million So is the scheme a form

:11:51.:11:55.

of cheap labour? I mean, we're finding

:11:56.:12:01.

that the parish councils are coming to us and they're taking pride

:12:02.:12:05.

in their communities, and they're saying that they would like to come

:12:06.:12:09.

and help the county council doing The road wardens scheme means

:12:10.:12:12.

that they are expecting free labour to fill in holes in the road,

:12:13.:12:22.

dig out the ditches and clean signs, but we're all

:12:23.:12:25.

paying our council tax. 11 other local councils have shown

:12:26.:12:27.

interest in the volunteer scheme, It's a big Devon Derby

:12:28.:12:34.

football match this weekend. Our intrepid sports

:12:35.:12:40.

reporter has gone to great lengths to catch a glimpse

:12:41.:12:43.

of the top secret training. And this is how cold

:12:44.:12:47.

it is going to get tonight, Also, more cloud coming

:12:48.:12:50.

in from the east. The Devon composer who

:12:51.:12:55.

wrote the music to one of the most watched -

:12:56.:13:09.

and poignant films in the country has today been back

:13:10.:13:11.

to the Teignmouth School that helped Laura Rossi was asked

:13:12.:13:14.

to compose the soundtrack to the Imperial War Museum's film,

:13:15.:13:17.

The Battle of the Somme. She's been holding workshops

:13:18.:13:20.

with music students to help them understand the film ahead

:13:21.:13:23.

of performances with a live symphony After its release in 1916, The

:13:24.:13:46.

Battle Of The Somme quickly became a must see film. It remains the

:13:47.:13:50.

biggest box office success, it was seen by over half the population,

:13:51.:13:56.

and in the first six weeks it was seen by nearly 20 million people. It

:13:57.:14:00.

was a box office record which wasn't beaten until Star Wars in 1977. Just

:14:01.:14:08.

over 100 years on, it is as relevant today as ever. Over an hour and a

:14:09.:14:13.

quarter of life on the front before and after battle. This film was

:14:14.:14:21.

before censorship came in, so it is the only footage of the British dead

:14:22.:14:24.

and wounded to this day. We still don't see any at all. I actually

:14:25.:14:30.

went to the school long time ago, so I'm from Teignmouth. It is really

:14:31.:14:35.

great to be back. Ten years ago, Laura was commissioned by the

:14:36.:14:39.

Imperial War Museum to score the film for its 90th anniversary. A

:14:40.:14:44.

year after its Centenary, it is now being screened 100 times around the

:14:45.:14:49.

country. The film screenings are in partnership with the Imperial War

:14:50.:14:56.

Museum, through the First World War Centenary partnership. Today, Laura

:14:57.:14:59.

was back at her old school, having a workshop with people. Sometimes,

:15:00.:15:03.

they might have been in a more high-spirited moment. It isn't

:15:04.:15:06.

necessary because it's the war that you want to write something very

:15:07.:15:10.

does present. You want to fit the scenes, and when I was scoring this,

:15:11.:15:18.

there are busy some winded, but in this team they seem quite happy. So

:15:19.:15:26.

let us think how we can relate that -- there are obviously some winded.

:15:27.:15:31.

I was convinced that I'd found my relative who was injured in the

:15:32.:15:36.

Somme, and the War Museum says that they are inundated people thinking

:15:37.:15:43.

it is him, but it is probably not him, so I'll keep looking. Will be a

:15:44.:15:46.

chance people into mass on Sunday to see a screening of the film and here

:15:47.:15:51.

it with the orchestra at Exeter Cathedral tomorrow evening. In the

:15:52.:15:55.

cathedral, be absolutely wonderful. You have the have the acoustic, the

:15:56.:16:00.

space and that whole idea of course with the Cathedral itself. And when

:16:01.:16:04.

this film was originally made. I think the music at a tremendous

:16:05.:16:08.

amount. With many people watching the film and perhaps going away from

:16:09.:16:11.

its thinking what it was about. Though often remember they were

:16:12.:16:16.

moved by piece of music that appears and is suitable for the picture

:16:17.:16:17.

didn't. -- for the picture it is in. There are performances of the Battle

:16:18.:16:26.

of the Somme film with live music at Exeter Cathedral tomorrow

:16:27.:16:29.

and Teignmouth Pavilions on Sunday. It's time for the sport now,

:16:30.:16:35.

and Andy's been going to great lengths and heights to find out

:16:36.:16:42.

about this weekend's Devon derby. Some people are calling this game

:16:43.:16:45.

the biggest match ever played between Plymouth Argyle and Exeter

:16:46.:16:47.

City. It's no surprise to hear it's

:16:48.:16:49.

another sell-out at Home Park with around 15,000 fans

:16:50.:16:54.

expected tomorrow. Local bragging are always at stake

:16:55.:16:55.

when these arch rivals meet, but with both sides in the top four

:16:56.:16:58.

of League Two, they're vying for something far more

:16:59.:17:01.

valuable in the long And both were playing their cards

:17:02.:17:03.

very close to their chests. Well, you can tell

:17:04.:17:09.

this is a big game. We're not even allowed to see

:17:10.:17:11.

Plymouth Argyle training. And it's not just Argyle:

:17:12.:17:15.

Exeter City have been just as cagey. And they're the form team

:17:16.:17:23.

in the whole of the country, 12 games unbeaten, seven wins

:17:24.:17:25.

in a row and a player whose form in front of goal has seen him break

:17:26.:17:29.

a record that stood at the club I didn't know until I'd equalled it,

:17:30.:17:32.

you know, what the record was. So, yeah, there was a bit

:17:33.:17:38.

of pressure before But yeah, it strange pressure,

:17:39.:17:40.

because, you know, you can't Despite five goals in five wins

:17:41.:17:44.

in January, it was his team-mate Ollie Watkins who is named league

:17:45.:17:48.

two Player of the Month. Yeah, some of the lads give him

:17:49.:17:51.

a bit of stick, but no, Loads of assists and

:17:52.:17:54.

a couple of goals. So I don't begrudge him, but I think

:17:55.:17:57.

scoring every game in a month, It shows you how well we've

:17:58.:18:01.

done the last month. Good form in January,

:18:02.:18:13.

great, but it's about And we're all focused on getting

:18:14.:18:15.

to the end of the season The end of the season,

:18:16.:18:23.

the chance to relax. Well, the Argyle squad couldn't wait

:18:24.:18:27.

that long and jetted off to Spain His plan was a bit different

:18:28.:18:30.

to the one you would think, so it was a lot of training up

:18:31.:18:35.

there. Just nice to train in

:18:36.:18:38.

warm weather, really. So does the form Exeter's players

:18:39.:18:39.

are showing at the moment hold any They're not looking

:18:40.:18:46.

as dangerous as us. You know, we've got, you know,

:18:47.:18:51.

a lot of dangerous players, We're obviously ahead of them

:18:52.:18:53.

in the league for a reason. You know, we'll have to be

:18:54.:18:57.

playing at it some more. -- we will have to be banging at it

:18:58.:19:06.

tomorrow. Neither side giving

:19:07.:19:10.

too much away here. For Argyle, they'll be hoping 13

:19:11.:19:11.

is unlucky for Exeter is the Grecians look

:19:12.:19:14.

to extend their unbeaten run. For Exeter, they'll be hoping

:19:15.:19:16.

Argyle are still in Siesta It's good to see you starting to

:19:17.:19:23.

branch out with your reporting. I think we'll have to move on quickly

:19:24.:19:24.

from that! Exeter Chiefs' Jack Nowell

:19:25.:19:27.

and Tomas Francis will line up against each other tomorrow

:19:28.:19:29.

when England take on Wales in Cardiff, in round two

:19:30.:19:32.

of the Six Nations. The 23-year-old Cornishman will be

:19:33.:19:34.

hoping to add to his nine international tries when he replaces

:19:35.:19:37.

Jonny May on the wing. While Francis has also been called

:19:38.:19:40.

up to the Welsh starting line-up. On Sunday, their club team-mates

:19:41.:19:42.

are back in Premiership action The Chiefs beat them the last time

:19:43.:19:45.

the two sides met at Sandy Park in the Premiership semifinal

:19:46.:19:50.

and with Wasps providing five of the England squad,

:19:51.:19:53.

it looks like a good time to play You know, you can't run away

:19:54.:19:56.

from it, they've got a few But I think regardless of that,

:19:57.:20:01.

everyone's where they've got You know, they've got

:20:02.:20:06.

numerous international So it'll be a tough

:20:07.:20:08.

now? Dan Leavy has now impressed Hollywood. Mordred is short listed

don't have to look hard to see it was filmed entirely on location in

Devon and Cornwall. I play Guinevere, and basically when

:22:02.:22:06.

Mordred arrives, I don't trust him at all and I have a bad feeling

:22:07.:22:10.

about him. I can't put my finger on it. But I feel like he's going to be

:22:11.:22:18.

a danger. His idea of what's right isn't necessarily the same as one

:22:19.:22:25.

as's. He sees it black and white, whilst they will see the shades of

grey. With no grant funding, the South Devon players didn't give up.

:22:31.:22:38.

Through blood sweat and tears, panicking, we have done car-boot

sales, jumble sales, crowdfunds. Some of us did a burlesque night,

:22:43.:22:51.

including Mordred. With such a tight budget, everyone mucks in. One of

:22:52.:22:55.

the most brutal characters also had the job of teaching his colleagues

:22:56.:23:01.

how to fight. How hard is it to drum up the rage that they need for the

:23:02.:23:05.

fight? Did it come quite naturally? I think for a lot of people it came

:23:06.:23:08.

naturally. I think everyone was enjoying it, they were having a good

:23:09.:23:12.

time. They're already psyched up anyway. It was a very brutal style

:23:13.:23:19.

of fighting, so, you know, a lot of shield grubs and kicks and very sort

:23:20.:23:23.

of violent stuff. It's going to look very impressive in the film. Could

:23:24.:23:30.

the Southwest's answer to Game Of Throwing take these budding actors

:23:31.:23:43.

all the way to the top? -- Game of Thrones. A lot of violence, and

:23:44.:23:46.

that's just in the studio! A very chilly weekend.

:23:47.:23:54.

It is cold outside. You need to cuddle up this weekend because there

:23:55.:24:00.

is a very cold easterly wind and low temperatures, some of the coldest it

:24:01.:24:04.

has felt so far this winter. Very chilly. There will be a breeze, and

:24:05.:24:09.

wintry showers around. So those will leave some snow over high ground. At

:24:10.:24:14.

the moment, we have high-pressure -- low pressure over Spain and

:24:15.:24:17.

Portugal, dreadful weather. High-pressure to the north, easterly

:24:18.:24:21.

winds. One weather front trapped in the flow. It has the can of cloud to

:24:22.:24:26.

produce snow showers at the moment. They're coming through central parts

:24:27.:24:30.

of Britain and will travel towards us by the end of the night. The risk

:24:31.:24:34.

of a few flurries in the wind, certainly for Dorset and Somerset.

:24:35.:24:37.

By Sunday, the wind is stronger. A similar setup, with a lot of cloud

:24:38.:24:41.

and potentially more wintry showers, too. We continue to see some pretty

:24:42.:24:45.

low temperatures over the next couple of days. We can is definitely

:24:46.:24:49.

a cold one. There are showers and more cloud coming in from the east.

:24:50.:24:54.

In the second half of the night. Some clear skies, and certainly

:24:55.:24:57.

frost possible. This was earlier today on the south coast of

:24:58.:25:01.

Cornwall. Call having some of the best of them join today, will hazy

:25:02.:25:05.

in places. There is quite thick haze, so reduced visibility because

:25:06.:25:12.

of that. For all of us, it is the wind that makes it feel bitterly

:25:13.:25:16.

cold. It will be with us on Saturday and Sunday. The holes you saw in the

:25:17.:25:22.

cloud are already out there, and that means many of us tonight that

:25:23.:25:26.

temperatures will fall very quickly indeed. Possibly as low as -2, if

:25:27.:25:33.

not -3 overnight tonight. For all of us, bitterly cold, in places rusty

:25:34.:25:38.

start to the day. If you are on the terraces watching that important

:25:39.:25:44.

football match, need to wrap up warmly -- frosty start. The showers

:25:45.:25:49.

falling readily as sleet and certainly over high ground, falling

:25:50.:25:54.

as snow. The amount is likely to be small, but you will notice what is

:25:55.:25:57.

falling out of the sky. Temperatures no more than three or four degrees.

:25:58.:26:01.

If you add wind strength, it will feel a lot colder than that. That is

:26:02.:26:06.

the forecast for the Isles of Scilly. A cold wind and wintry

:26:07.:26:09.

showers, quite blustery wind across the island here. Times of high

:26:10.:26:14.

water, here they are for ports and harbours. Portland at 6:47am,

:26:15.:26:21.

Penzance at 440 7p. If you're brave enough to be at the the show this of

:26:22.:26:31.

year, these are the temperatures. That us look at the coastal waters

:26:32.:26:36.

forecast, pretty lively winds. From the East and North East, Force 5-6.

:26:37.:26:41.

A few showers around, Margaret visibility. There is thick haze at

:26:42.:26:50.

sea at the moment. It is the wind direction that dictate our

:26:51.:26:52.

temperature as we move through the next few days. This is Tuesday.

:26:53.:26:56.

You'll notice we have changed the colour. It has been very blue over

:26:57.:27:01.

the last couple of days. By Tuesday, there is some yellow. Those at high

:27:02.:27:05.

temperatures, temperatures in double figures. You'll notice that the far

:27:06.:27:09.

south-west of England has some as well. Be patient, because will lose

:27:10.:27:12.

the court, it will warm up eventually. It may take all the way

:27:13.:27:16.

through to the middle of next week before we get some appreciable

:27:17.:27:19.

sunshine and higher temperatures. The next two days are bitterly cold,

:27:20.:27:24.

exacerbated by the strength of the wind. You will need to wrap up very

:27:25.:27:30.

warmly. Have a nice weekend. Thank you very much, David. Wrap up only

:27:31.:27:34.

if you are going to the Devon derby tomorrow. If not, full match

:27:35.:27:38.

commentary on BBC radio Devon from TPM tomorrow. From all of us on the

:27:39.:27:45.

programme, have a good weekend. Goodbye. -- from two PM.
