Hello and welcome to Inside Out from North Lincolnshireshire. This

:00:11.:00:17.

week we tell the story of six-week- old Jack Marshal and his battle

:00:17.:00:22.

against brain cancer. His story proved an inspiration to thousands

:00:22.:00:26.

of ordinary people as well as celebrities and footballers. I love

:00:26.:00:36.
:00:36.:00:40.

Also, tonight, burning issue - why the Forestry Commission are

:00:40.:00:45.

encouraging woodland owners to cut down trees. Wood fuel is market by

:00:45.:00:50.

which we can actively manage woodlands and produce better-

:00:50.:00:55.

quality timber. And fair weather or foul? We met a

:00:55.:00:59.

man who has set up a network of weather stations across the dales.

:01:00.:01:09.
:01:10.:01:18.

Yes, we have a reading. It's Now, it must be the worst thing

:01:18.:01:22.

that any parent has to face - watching their child die, but when

:01:22.:01:29.

Tracy and Craze Marshall found out their son had terminal brain cancer,

:01:29.:01:32.

they decided to raise awareness about the issue. This film which

:01:33.:01:36.

some people may find upsetting, follows the family during the last

:01:37.:01:46.
:01:47.:01:50.

few months of Jack's short but What Jack's come up against over

:01:50.:01:55.

the last 18 months and how he's come every step of the way is just

:01:55.:02:00.

eye opening. Jack is not sat that moaning, moping about things. He's

:02:00.:02:03.

never whingeed about things, so you just have to dust yourself down and

:02:03.:02:10.

move on. I feel proud, and I'm sure Josh feels proud as well. He's

:02:10.:02:20.
:02:20.:02:21.

amazing, very much braver than me. That's what I think, you know?

:02:21.:02:28.

ten weeks we were told, "That's a really good scan,", we were told,

:02:28.:02:35.

"I'm sorry. Your little boy is going to die." There's nothing

:02:35.:02:39.

anybody can do. Good morning, Jackamo. Hiya,

:02:39.:02:45.

gorgeous. It's September, six months since Tracy and Craig were

:02:45.:02:54.

told their son Jack had just a few days to live. Love you. Organised

:02:54.:03:03.

chaos I think is the best way to describe it. You just try and

:03:03.:03:09.

maintain normality as best you can. But, you know, what is normal?

:03:09.:03:15.

is now six. He was just four years old when doctors found a large

:03:15.:03:21.

tumour in his train. I felt sick. I was panicked. I just kept thinking,

:03:21.:03:24.

that's my little boy on the bed in there, and there's nothing that I

:03:24.:03:31.

can do. After ten hours of surgery, the tumour was removed, but the

:03:31.:03:38.

cancer had already spread. operation had gone well. They'd

:03:38.:03:42.

removed as much as they safely felt they could remove, but the disease

:03:42.:03:47.

had seeded elsewhere on his brain and down his spine. You had that

:03:47.:03:52.

feeling of almost elation at the fact that Jack had come out of

:03:52.:03:57.

theatre, but then you had the wave of panic over the fact that if it's

:03:57.:04:04.

spread, then it must be cancerous. It was, and an aggressive form.

:04:04.:04:09.

Jack needed months of chemotherapy followed then by radiotherapy.

:04:09.:04:15.

Every single morning, I woke up, I would say to Jack, "Good morning,

:04:15.:04:21.

Jackamo, how are you this morning?" And every single morning, no matter

:04:21.:04:25.

what he'd been through, he'd say fine, every single day.

:04:25.:04:30.

How is that? Is that all right? the point came when the doctors

:04:30.:04:35.

could do no more. The family chose to look after Jack at home and not

:04:35.:04:38.

at a hospital or hospice. I didn't want him to be in a strange place.

:04:39.:04:43.

I didn't want us to be in a strange place, whether or not it meant me

:04:43.:04:47.

sitting up throughout the night or us doing medicines constantly, then

:04:47.:04:53.

so be it. He was on nearly 40 medicines when we first came home,

:04:53.:04:58.

but you sort of get thrown in the deep end and learn quickly.

:04:58.:05:01.

Although Jack now needs attention around the clock, the daily

:05:01.:05:05.

routines of family life must go on, especially for the couple's other

:05:05.:05:11.

son, Josh. Love you. Love you too. See you later. All right, mate.

:05:11.:05:15.

doesn't want to go to school, not because he doesn't want to be in

:05:15.:05:22.

school, because he just doesn't want to be away from his brother.

:05:22.:05:28.

Ooh! Is the heating on this morning? Each day now follows a

:05:28.:05:31.

familiar pattern. Since we have came home, I have never not slept

:05:31.:05:35.

in the same room with him. This particular arrangement - definitely

:05:35.:05:40.

in the same bed with him since March just so I can make sure he's

:05:40.:05:48.

still breathing OK, he's not been sick. If cancer is the right word

:05:48.:05:54.

for what it does - it's just destructive from everything from

:05:54.:06:02.

your family life to social lives to normal life. When he was first

:06:02.:06:06.

diagnosed, I sat putting makeup on. Craig said, "Why you doing that

:06:07.:06:14.

now?" I said, "When Jack sees me, he's not like, what's going on

:06:14.:06:19.

here? Not that he's going to think that. He was only four, but to me,

:06:19.:06:23.

I needed to be as normal as possible. There are times when I

:06:24.:06:28.

had to kick her out of the room and say to go and get some sleep. I am

:06:28.:06:32.

here. The doctors and nurses are here. We're fine. Go and get some

:06:32.:06:36.

sleep. I have had to force her into it. Then she's gone to get some

:06:36.:06:46.
:06:46.:06:47.

sleep, but hasn't slept because she's not with Jack. I've got Ben

:06:47.:06:51.

Ten, Sonic. We'll decide on that while I am getting some bits and

:06:51.:06:59.

bobs together. One, two, three. Mind you don't dunk your head on

:06:59.:07:09.
:07:09.:07:12.

# Glory, glory, Man United # Throughout the treatment, nothing

:07:12.:07:19.

ever affected Jack's love of football, especially Man United.

:07:19.:07:23.

like Rooney the best. It was during these months at home that the

:07:23.:07:29.

family started telling Jack's story on Twitter, wanting to give Jack's

:07:29.:07:37.

brain cancer a public face. I love all my best friends. That's very

:07:37.:07:41.

nice. Among Jack's followers are many Premiere League footballers.

:07:41.:07:47.

saw him on Twitter a few times, but it was more my mum. She made me

:07:47.:07:51.

take notice. My mum followed him closely and said to me, there's a

:07:51.:07:56.

little boy called Jack, and he's got the best smile you've ever seen,

:07:56.:08:01.

so I started to follow him. And a day out with the Wilshires in

:08:01.:08:07.

London and then Jack got to meet his biggest hero. As I had said to

:08:07.:08:11.

Jack, you'll never guess who is stood there. Wayne came into his

:08:11.:08:17.

line of sight, and he was just stood around and Jack had not

:08:17.:08:24.

really said a lot all day, and he went, "Rooney, guess what - I would

:08:24.:08:31.

like to kiss you." So Wayne bent down and Jack kissed him. We've met

:08:31.:08:35.

some amazing people along the way. I'm not talking just celebrities.

:08:35.:08:40.

I'm talking did you's and the me's. You know, we never realised that

:08:40.:08:43.

we'd be able to raise as much awareness as we have with Jack

:08:43.:08:47.

fronting that, leading the way with his smile. I think that might have

:08:47.:08:57.

been a small seizure. The summer has now turned to autumn, and

:08:57.:09:01.

Jack's condition has worsened. Where we are now is a little bit

:09:01.:09:06.

more upsetting for me because three weeks ago, it would have been,

:09:06.:09:14.

"Morning, mum", and I'd go, "Morning, Jack," and he'd go,

:09:14.:09:21.

"Guess what, mum? I love you!" We'd have a cut, but it's less than that

:09:21.:09:25.

now. Jack is sleeping most of the time, and the family are beginning

:09:25.:09:28.

to prepare for what's to come. bought this one. The reason I

:09:28.:09:33.

bought this one is to wear to Jack's funeral. I want to be proud

:09:33.:09:36.

about Jack. I don't want to fall apart. I don't know what I'll be

:09:36.:09:41.

like at the time. But for now, the daily routine continues, preparing

:09:41.:09:46.

family meals must be fitted in around caring for Jack. I've left

:09:46.:09:51.

him for a little while on his own now while cooking dinner, and

:09:51.:09:55.

that's enough. The family are reluctant to leave Jack for even a

:09:55.:10:00.

moment. Every second is more precious now than ever. To be

:10:00.:10:09.

truthful, I don't really get to lay don't you? Mummy gives the best

:10:09.:10:19.
:10:19.:10:19.

snuggle. Jack died the next day. I got up

:10:19.:10:23.

this morning. I just thought his eyes didn't look right. He didn't

:10:23.:10:27.

seem like he was there anymore, and his breathing weren't right. As I

:10:28.:10:37.
:10:38.:10:43.

sat down, I just squeezed him, and I never wanted to believe that he

:10:43.:10:49.

would die - even now, sort of. There's that feeling of disbelief.

:10:49.:10:56.

We have been missing Jack quite a lot because one day we walked past

:10:56.:11:01.

the room, and Jack's bed was there, and Jack's not there - a weird

:11:01.:11:08.

Jack's story has always been about making other families aware of

:11:08.:11:12.

brain tumours, and that will still continue - a lasting legacy for a

:11:12.:11:16.

little boy who touched so many people. The way that he was special,

:11:16.:11:21.

the way that he stood out from the crowd can - and I am determined

:11:21.:11:31.
:11:31.:11:33.

will - still make a difference. awareness of it will carry on. I

:11:33.:11:38.

will use pictures of Jack and talk about Jack, not quite the way I

:11:38.:11:43.

envisaged him - being a doctor - but his name is Jack Marshall.

:11:43.:11:53.
:11:53.:11:54.

He'll do what he wants. Coming up on Inside Out, rain or shine. The

:11:54.:11:58.

man trying to help people in the dales help people decide whether

:11:58.:12:08.

As the cost of heating our homes continues to skyrocket, it seems

:12:08.:12:11.

that a form of fuel that's been around for thousands of years is

:12:11.:12:17.

making something of a comeback. Asha Tanner has been hearing how

:12:17.:12:27.
:12:27.:12:28.

chopping down trees for fuel can Imagine a way of heating our homes

:12:28.:12:33.

with something that won't hurt the planet, has a secure supply for

:12:33.:12:41.

centuries to come and is all around We have been using wood as fuel

:12:41.:12:45.

since prehistoric man struck his first campfire, and there's no

:12:45.:12:49.

shortage of this stuff in this part of the world, so what's stopping us

:12:49.:12:53.

from turning all of these trees into fuel? This is what we

:12:53.:12:57.

traditionally think of as biomass fuel - power stations fed by willow

:12:57.:13:02.

and wood pellets, all done on an industrial scale. The Forestry

:13:02.:13:06.

Commission has its sights set on another type of wood fuel - trees,

:13:06.:13:12.

and more specifically, trees belonging to private wood owners.

:13:12.:13:16.

have known this wood since I was a young boy. I have walked past it

:13:16.:13:20.

just about every day of my life, and I got a chance to buy it

:13:20.:13:25.

probably two years ago, and I took the opportunity. When you bought

:13:25.:13:29.

the woodland, what did your family say to you? On the day that we

:13:29.:13:34.

finally signed and I bought it, I brought them down, and I stopped on

:13:34.:13:39.

the roadside and said, "This tree is yours," and she says, "You

:13:39.:13:46.

what?" I said, "We bought the wood. This is our woodland," and they

:13:46.:13:52.

were amazed. Andrew is a sculptor and was planning to use the wood to

:13:52.:13:56.

display some of his work, but felt it was more than just a pretty

:13:56.:14:02.

place. I took some advice from the Forestry Commission about managing

:14:02.:14:07.

this woodland, and they advised me that all Sycamores had to come out.

:14:07.:14:10.

Once you have took them down, you have to do something with them, so

:14:10.:14:14.

the case is that we're chopping it up and hopefully selling it.

:14:14.:14:19.

Who will you be selling it to? plan is to sell it within this

:14:19.:14:24.

local area, within a two-mile radius or so. The demand for wood

:14:24.:14:29.

fuel is rising rapidly. The market has expanded almost tenfold in the

:14:29.:14:33.

last five years. What we can't produce ourselves, we're forced to

:14:33.:14:38.

import, and that leaves a big carbon footprint. But if the

:14:38.:14:41.

Forestry Commission could tap into private owners like Andrew, there

:14:41.:14:46.

could be piles more local timber available, ten million more tonnes,

:14:46.:14:53.

they say, by 2020. Rudy, why do you want to encourage people to use

:14:53.:14:59.

wood fuel? Well, what we've got is 92,000 hectares of woodland in the

:14:59.:15:09.
:15:09.:15:09.

Humber. About half of that woodland is under managed. What about for

:15:10.:15:12.

purists who are worried about the destruction of woodlands

:15:12.:15:17.

themselves? What would you say to them? Well, wood fuel is a market

:15:17.:15:22.

by which we can actively manage woodlands, create better ecosystems

:15:22.:15:27.

and produce better quality timber, so everybody wins - timber, climate

:15:27.:15:32.

change, tackling fossil fuel use and obviously improving the ecofuel

:15:32.:15:36.

system at the same time. On the Zetland Estate in North Yorkshire

:15:36.:15:39.

they run one of the biggest private forestry operations in Yorkshire,

:15:39.:15:48.

but even they only recently turned to wood to heat the estate. We were

:15:48.:15:52.

looking for market for the estate's timber. The high price of oil was

:15:52.:15:57.

driving us towards looking at renewables, and this seemed a great

:15:57.:16:03.

opportunity for us to put the two together. Woodland makes up two-

:16:03.:16:08.

thirds of the Zetland Estate. a long testify term thing, forestry.

:16:08.:16:12.

You're only a custodian of the woodlands for a short period. A lot

:16:12.:16:17.

of the timber we have at the moment was planted way before I started

:16:17.:16:23.

here by different forestry managers and Lords of this estate. They're

:16:23.:16:27.

now producing enough fuel to heat all the estate building, plus the

:16:27.:16:31.

local school. This is all very well in rural North Yorkshire, but most

:16:31.:16:35.

of us don't live on a country estate. What would be a real

:16:35.:16:38.

challenge would be to set up a similar system in the former coal

:16:38.:16:44.

fields of South Yorkshire. This used to be a powerhouse of fuel

:16:44.:16:49.

production and could be yet again, thanks to an EU grant. The

:16:49.:16:54.

partnership came up with a �95,000 grant to help resuscitate this

:16:54.:17:00.

woodland on the outskirts of Barnsley. Lynne, why hasn't it been

:17:00.:17:05.

economic to produce wood fuel? Private forestry owners tend to

:17:05.:17:09.

look at it in, how much is it going to cost us to take this out of the

:17:09.:17:14.

wood? And when you have planted timber 50 years ago, and you're

:17:14.:17:20.

taking it out, at the end of it, you're just going to leave it there,

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:31.

aren't you? We have been able to identify 290-something woodland

:17:31.:17:34.

within the South Yorkshire owner and being able to approach those

:17:34.:17:38.

woodland owners and ask them what more they want from their woodland,

:17:38.:17:43.

how they can manage it better and help them by learning from their

:17:43.:17:47.

European colleagues who are already active in managing their woodland

:17:47.:17:54.

more actively. They've set up a supply chain so that wood can be

:17:54.:17:59.

processed and used in the area. We're used to solid fuel, used to

:17:59.:18:05.

handling solid fuels used to storing fuel, burning fuel. These

:18:05.:18:08.

grants are primarily to drive the wood fuel supply chain, which it is

:18:08.:18:13.

now doing. It is now economic to thin woodlands, and at last we see

:18:13.:18:18.

some light at the end of the tunnel. I bought this wood through money

:18:18.:18:22.

that was earned in the Barnsley area. I am keeping it as good as I

:18:22.:18:30.

can for the area. This is where some of his wood might end up.

:18:30.:18:35.

This woodchip boiler is heating 166 flats in the centre of Barnsley,

:18:35.:18:40.

the biggest community wood-powered installation in the UK. Coal has

:18:40.:18:44.

become expensive over the last few years, but we also want to reduce

:18:44.:18:49.

the amount of carbon that we're releasing from this site into the

:18:49.:18:55.

atmosphere. This particular type of scheme is a very efficient form of

:18:55.:19:01.

heating, far more efficient than single-dwelling heating systems, so

:19:01.:19:06.

it does work out very cheap in terms of running costs. Turning

:19:06.:19:09.

forest owners into wood fuel producers could provide enough fuel

:19:09.:19:14.

to heat a quarter of a million homes, and in the process, preserve

:19:14.:19:17.

our woodlands for future generations. I didn't realise until

:19:17.:19:24.

I bought this wood how important it is. Unless they're maintained and

:19:24.:19:31.

thinned out, they just become dead spaces. I don't truly believe I own

:19:31.:19:41.
:19:41.:19:45.

it. I am just the sort of caretaker As we all know, planning anything

:19:45.:19:49.

outdoor -- planting anything outdoors can be an absolute lottery

:19:49.:19:54.

because of did weather. We sent our weather man who is trying to help

:19:54.:19:59.

out by setting up a series of local weather stations across Yorkshire.

:19:59.:20:02.

We do start the forecast with a severe Met Office warning for

:20:02.:20:07.

further snow. Not only will the showers be big and heavy, but with

:20:07.:20:11.

just a light breeze, they'll be slow moving. A beautiful start to

:20:11.:20:16.

the day, but don't be fooled because it is going to turn showery.

:20:16.:20:20.

I have been forecasting the weather in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire for

:20:20.:20:24.

just over four years. In that time I have seen all kinds of weather.

:20:24.:20:29.

It may be a clee share, but in this part of the world, it really can

:20:29.:20:33.

get four seasons in one day. Most of the time I like to think we'll

:20:33.:20:36.

get the forecast right, but occasionally, things can go wrong.

:20:36.:20:40.

That's what makes the job so challenging. We're going live in

:20:40.:20:46.

just a minute. Take a look. This is a cloudy old day.

:20:46.:20:50.

Advances in technology mean that forecasting is more accurate than

:20:50.:20:54.

ever before, but the weather can sometimes be a little mischievous

:20:54.:20:58.

and difficult to pin down, especially at a local level. So I

:20:58.:21:02.

have come to meet a man who is giving us forecasters, shall we say,

:21:02.:21:07.

a helping hand. Right. We have the wind cups, forward speed. That

:21:07.:21:12.

collects the rain. OK. What about this? And this is the integrated

:21:12.:21:16.

sensor suite that collects all the information, and that goes to the

:21:16.:21:20.

console here. John Livesley has always been fascinated by the

:21:20.:21:26.

weather, and when he retired, he decided to turn his dream of

:21:26.:21:30.

providing a network of local network stations across the country

:21:30.:21:39.

into a reality. I started to offer coverage from Ilkley to Bowness,

:21:39.:21:43.

started with a weather station here, and before I knew it, people were

:21:43.:21:48.

contacting me saying, "Can we have a station please?" Within two-and-

:21:48.:21:56.

a-half years John had had weather stations all feeding data back to a

:21:56.:22:00.

website that can be accessed by anyone. The information off the

:22:00.:22:05.

console gets into the system and is displayed here in these various

:22:05.:22:09.

different charts. So you have the temperatures, UV, solar, rain

:22:09.:22:19.

gauges, a forecast. You can just see that is real-time, not animated.

:22:19.:22:23.

We have a graft button and the webcams. What this means is anyone

:22:23.:22:27.

can log on to a computer and find out exactly what the weather is

:22:27.:22:31.

doing at that moment of time in the Yorkshire dales. The site also

:22:31.:22:36.

offers a forecast, but not in the sort of detail I am used to.

:22:36.:22:40.

observations are really useful and you claim accurate. But what about

:22:40.:22:48.

the forecast - that's vague - precipitation possible within 24-48

:22:48.:22:52.

hours. I understand what you're saying about the vagaries of the

:22:52.:22:57.

forecast, but that forecast could change within five or ten seconds

:22:57.:23:02.

as it computes something else, and the way this system works is it

:23:02.:23:06.

builds up its database of conditions - cause and ec, and it

:23:06.:23:12.

will get more and more accurate with time - literally with years.

:23:12.:23:17.

For John, the project, which he calls MyLocalWeather, really is a

:23:17.:23:22.

labour of love, but it can also be quite time-consuming. Today there

:23:22.:23:26.

is a problem up in Ribblehead. have frequent power cut, which

:23:26.:23:30.

computers don't like, so that may be a combination of factors that's

:23:30.:23:36.

causing the problem, and it's remote, and it's unmanned, and it's

:23:36.:23:41.

cold, and it's wet, and it's grey, but apart from that, it's a great

:23:41.:23:45.

day. In between putting in new station and maintaining existing

:23:45.:23:51.

one, it's almost become a full-time job. And as I speak, we have

:23:51.:23:55.

rebooted this, and I am - fingers crossed, as we speak, it's doing

:23:55.:24:04.

what it should do and downloading fast - I can tell by the way the

:24:04.:24:09.

digits are going. Up next is the Wensleydale Creamery. I have a

:24:09.:24:13.

spare console so I can take that up on to the cherry picker with myself

:24:13.:24:18.

and Phil and plug that in. Hopefully, we can get a reading

:24:18.:24:23.

from there. And the job is a good one, fingers crossed.

:24:24.:24:27.

Mind your head. Health and safety at all times. It takes a few

:24:27.:24:31.

minutes to fit the part, and the weather station is back in business.

:24:31.:24:38.

Yes, we have a reading. It's working. John's weather station

:24:38.:24:42.

aren't just about letting people know what the weather is doing.

:24:42.:24:50.

They also have a practical use. I am off to Dalby Forest to find out

:24:50.:24:54.

more. The forest is a massive tourist attraction bringing in

:24:54.:25:01.

walkers and cyclists from all over, but with 3,000 hectares of woodland,

:25:01.:25:06.

it's also a valuable source of timber and all of this takes

:25:06.:25:10.

careful management. The weather station gives accurate

:25:10.:25:16.

information. We found it's actually got a lot of use for our own forest

:25:16.:25:19.

management, things like checking for fire danger and water stress on

:25:19.:25:24.

the plants and stuff like that we grow. The weather station gives

:25:24.:25:32.

accurate information about rainfall as well as evapotranspiration rates,

:25:32.:25:37.

so rangers know how much moisture is leaving the forest. This morning

:25:37.:25:42.

it was only .5 of a millimetre, which is no stress at all on a

:25:42.:25:48.

plant. As that figure comes up to figures like 20, that's stressful

:25:48.:25:52.

for plant. You can actually monitor that on a live format. So now we

:25:52.:25:56.

know that John's weather stations have their uses, but what about

:25:56.:26:01.

their forecast? I think it's time for a bit of a challenge. OK, then,

:26:01.:26:06.

John. See you there. Bye. Here's the plan. We have set a date in the

:26:06.:26:11.

future - the Kilnsey Show, and on that day, John's going to give his

:26:11.:26:15.

forecast. I'll give mine. We'll see if it's right. Now on to the

:26:15.:26:19.

weather prospects. It's the Kilnsey Show today. How is it looking?

:26:19.:26:24.

looking cool and cloudy, and if I were a girl, which I am, I would

:26:24.:26:28.

probably take my brolly because there is the risk of the odd light

:26:28.:26:33.

shower. Good morning. How are you? Very well. How are you? Very well.

:26:33.:26:37.

I have done my forecast. I think in summary it's probably going to be

:26:37.:26:40.

fairly cloudy, probably mostly dry, but there could be the odd light

:26:40.:26:44.

shower and cool as well. What about you? From the readings at Kilnsey

:26:44.:26:50.

Park, the close base is quite low. It's a light wind, and it is saying

:26:50.:26:55.

that there are increasing clouds with little temperature change, but

:26:55.:27:00.

precipitation is possible within 24-48 hours. Sadly, a gloomy day, I

:27:00.:27:07.

think, for us all. All right, John. I'll see you there. The Kilnsey

:27:07.:27:12.

Show always falls on the Tuesday after the August Bank Holiday. It

:27:12.:27:15.

attracts thousands of visitor, so an accurate forecast is vital for

:27:15.:27:19.

the organisers. The weather forecast is probably

:27:19.:27:23.

the most important thing we have to deal with at the show. We all

:27:23.:27:29.

listen to it. One says one thing, one says another. We try to listen

:27:29.:27:36.

to one that is correct. Like a BBC One? Like a BBC! So John, it's just

:27:36.:27:40.

gone 1.00pm. How do you think we're doing? I think it's a draw. We have

:27:40.:27:46.

both come up with the same forecast - a good old August grey day.

:27:46.:27:49.

Absolutely. It's overcast. We have both driven through a shower on the

:27:49.:27:55.

way here. It feels cool. It does indeed. No factor 24 today. Having

these extremely local weather station can certainly be of use to

:27:59.:28:02.

some people and could be best used to complement the weather forecast

:28:02.:28:07.

by the Met Office. Let's face it - when you live in a place where the

:28:07.:28:10.

weather is so variable, why not take advantage of your very own

:28:10.:28:14.

weather station? And guess what - after we left, it rained all

Six-year-old Jack Marshall caught the nation's imagination with his brave fight against brain cancer. In this special film, Jack's family invited BBC cameras in to document his final weeks. Also Asha Tanna looks at the rise of wood fuel as the price of other forms of energy spirals, and Keeley Donovan tests out the accuracy of mini weather stations in the Yorkshire Dales.
