tonight's BBC News at Ten. That's it. Now on BBC One we can join the

BBC's news teams where you are. Goodbye.

:00:00.:00:23.

The Scottish and English FAs lobby FIFA to allow players to wear

:00:24.:00:27.

poppies for their match on Armistice Day.

:00:28.:00:29.

Losing their farms and their livelihoods over

:00:30.:00:30.

an error in the law - the tenant farmers trying

:00:31.:00:33.

Also on the programme, Former miners in Scotland call

:00:34.:00:36.

for an investigation into confrontations

:00:37.:00:37.

between pickets and police during the miners' strike.

:00:38.:00:40.

A study that says one in six jobs in the public sector could be

:00:41.:00:46.

And, we're in Germany as Celtic prepare for tonight's

:00:47.:00:51.

Is a poppy a symbol of remembrance or a political statement?

:00:52.:01:11.

That question is at the heart of a row between the Scottish

:01:12.:01:17.

and English Football Associations, and the sport's world

:01:18.:01:19.

Fifa has turned down a request from the FAs for players to be

:01:20.:01:23.

allowed to wear armbands featuring poppies during their world cup

:01:24.:01:30.

qualifying match which takes place on Armistice Day.

:01:31.:01:32.

Our political correspondent Andrew Kerr joins us

:01:33.:01:33.

I am in the garden of remembrance in Princes Street Gardens in the

:01:34.:01:46.

capital. It just opened yesterday. At this special time of year when we

:01:47.:01:51.

look back and we think of those who have given their lives so we could

:01:52.:01:55.

enjoy the freedoms we have today. All around me I am surrounded by

:01:56.:02:00.

simple white wooden crosses, adorned by a simple symbol, the poppy. Our

:02:01.:02:07.

footballers I wanted the chance to wear that symbol so they too can

:02:08.:02:08.

have the opportunity to remember. A simple ceremony, a reminder of

:02:09.:02:21.

sacrifice, people come to remember conflicts in the distant past and

:02:22.:02:25.

recent, painful events, too. The young men who gave their lives in

:02:26.:02:30.

battles like the Somme 100 years ago were just like these young men,

:02:31.:02:36.

friends who banded together. On the 11th of November, Armistice Day,

:02:37.:02:39.

Scotland will play England and the teams want to wear a poppy. We have

:02:40.:02:45.

had a president on this back in 2011. I think it's clear, and the

:02:46.:02:50.

point we are making is this is not a political statement, this is a

:02:51.:02:54.

personal choice, this is a mark of respect for those who have lost

:02:55.:03:01.

their lives in the war. It's thought Fifa under the new regime is more

:03:02.:03:06.

likely to be sensitive to this issue involving the oldest international

:03:07.:03:08.

match in the world. There's certainly political will for a

:03:09.:03:14.

change of heart. I think it is important to commemorate and

:03:15.:03:17.

remember the people who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the world wars

:03:18.:03:20.

and there is no better to do this on Armistice Day, on the 11th of

:03:21.:03:24.

November when England play Scotland. I hope Fifa take the sensible

:03:25.:03:28.

approach and allow the teams to wear a poppy. I think Fifa have badly

:03:29.:03:34.

misjudged this. The fact the game itself takes place on the 11th of

:03:35.:03:38.

November and the fact this is the year to commemorate the Great War of

:03:39.:03:42.

the First World War shows how badly they have it. The poppy is not a

:03:43.:03:51.

political symbol. This year's Poppy Appeal was launched by: skin. People

:03:52.:03:55.

of all ages in Scotland will give this year to help veterans and many

:03:56.:03:59.

will wear a poppy with pride. There's certainly a great deal of

:04:00.:04:02.

support to allow the descendants of those who fought to remember as they

:04:03.:04:09.

meet on a different field of conflict.

:04:10.:04:15.

Stewart Reagan mentioned in that report there is a precedent in 2011

:04:16.:04:21.

when England took on Spain at a friendly in Wembley. Stuart Reagan

:04:22.:04:25.

will be meeting with Fifa in the next couple of days, just pushing

:04:26.:04:29.

their case, hoping that there might be a change of heart, that the

:04:30.:04:32.

English and Scottish players might be able to wear those armbands on

:04:33.:04:37.

Armistice Day. Back to you. Thank you Andrew.

:04:38.:04:44.

Former Scottish miners say the UK government's decision to rule out

:04:45.:04:46.

a public inquiry into what became known as the Battle of Orgreave

:04:47.:04:49.

in Yorkshire during the miners' strike in 1984 makes

:04:50.:04:51.

Campaigners here want an investigation into confrontations

:04:52.:04:54.

between striking miners and police north of the border.

:04:55.:04:56.

In Newtongrange, the old Callery was declared the National mining Museum

:04:57.:05:08.

in 1984. The same year as the most bitter of industrial disputes was

:05:09.:05:13.

unravelling. About 150 pickets were placed by -- faced by police as they

:05:14.:05:19.

left the mind. Striking miners clashed with police, one of the

:05:20.:05:23.

worst instances was just outside Edinburgh. One of those arrested was

:05:24.:05:29.

Alec Bennett. I appeared in court charged with breaching the peace and

:05:30.:05:34.

fined ?100. That was the 20th of December, 1984. I got my P 45 in

:05:35.:05:42.

January and I never worked for three years after the strike.

:05:43.:05:48.

In Westminster today a junior minister faced an urgent question in

:05:49.:05:53.

the Commons 24 hours his boss Amber Rudd ruled out an inquiry into the

:05:54.:06:01.

clashes at Orgreave. Isn't it staggeringly Home Secretary has

:06:02.:06:05.

brushed away an inquiry as unnecessary and is in me even more

:06:06.:06:09.

revealing she wasn't prepared to come to this house today to justify

:06:10.:06:14.

her decision? Some believe there is evidence that the Tory government

:06:15.:06:18.

instructed police to take a harsh approach in Scotland in the

:06:19.:06:20.

aftermath of the violence in Yorkshire. There's a lot of

:06:21.:06:27.

questions about civil liberties and about the politics of the policing

:06:28.:06:33.

of the strike. It goes far beyond individual cases of justice and

:06:34.:06:38.

requires a collective response. Hundreds of miners remain convicted

:06:39.:06:41.

of offences during the strike, more here in Scotland than any other part

:06:42.:06:46.

of the UK, and that's why campaigners say it is imperative

:06:47.:06:50.

that there is an investigation here into the conduct of police. I don't

:06:51.:06:55.

know... I can understand the Tories taking the decision that they did,

:06:56.:07:00.

not to investigate the Tory in government or the Margaret Thatcher

:07:01.:07:03.

government, but for the Scottish Parliament to take the same view as

:07:04.:07:08.

the Tories, I find that strange. I don't know what the reason is. The

:07:09.:07:12.

Scottish Government says it has no plans to it conduct and inquiry to

:07:13.:07:18.

the police here and say the Scottish criminal cases review board can look

:07:19.:07:21.

into cases of those who feel wrongly convicted.

:07:22.:07:24.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon says he hopes to be able to make

:07:25.:07:27.

an announcement shortly on the review of military

:07:28.:07:29.

There are concerns for the future of sites such as the historic

:07:30.:07:36.

Fort George base near Inverness and the Kinloss barracks in Moray.

:07:37.:07:39.

The MOD is keen to close down and sell off dozens

:07:40.:07:42.

A group of tenant farmers is taking the Scottish government to court

:07:43.:07:49.

to try to win compensation for having to leave the farms

:07:50.:07:52.

The farmers say they are the victim of flawed legislation ,

:07:53.:07:55.

and the government must take responsibility.

:07:56.:07:57.

acres have been farmed by the Patterson family since 1996 after

:07:58.:08:13.

they signed a limited partnership lease with the local landlord to run

:08:14.:08:18.

it for ten years. Legislation to try and strengthen the rights of tenant

:08:19.:08:22.

farmers in 2003 should have given them security for decades, but once

:08:23.:08:27.

that law was ruled to be incompetent, their hope of staying

:08:28.:08:31.

beyond their initial lease was not shared, they say, by the landlord.

:08:32.:08:34.

They've now been given notice to leave at the end of the month. I

:08:35.:08:43.

hope that those with power over this wrong legislation, the floor in the

:08:44.:08:52.

law before this week's over. I hope they do provide a means for the

:08:53.:08:54.

farmers who are losing their farms to be able to continue to farm. It's

:08:55.:08:59.

not so much the landlord but the Scottish Government they blame for

:09:00.:09:03.

their situation. Arriving at court in Edinburgh today in and John

:09:04.:09:07.

Patterson argues they are the victims of clumsy legislation and

:09:08.:09:08.

they must be compensated for the victims of clumsy legislation and

:09:09.:09:12.

money they've invested in the farm over the years. It was a flawed law.

:09:13.:09:18.

The Scottish Government said they would look sympathetically upon us,

:09:19.:09:21.

told us to put in a compensation claim and ever since they've been

:09:22.:09:28.

put in, the shop shutters have gone up and now we're standing outside

:09:29.:09:32.

here, having to take it to court. The Pattersons are one of seven

:09:33.:09:37.

tenant farmers from around Scotland taking the government to court, and

:09:38.:09:38.

tenant farmers from around Scotland they are supported by the farmers

:09:39.:09:43.

union. We simply ask government now, don't read this through the courts,

:09:44.:09:47.

stepped in, pay the compensation where it's due and allow the parties

:09:48.:09:52.

to move on from this. The Patterson family have accepted they will have

:09:53.:09:55.

to leave this farm that they've built up over the years at the end

:09:56.:09:59.

of the month, but they're hoping that by highlighting the plight

:10:00.:10:05.

other tenant farmers will be spared the same heartbreak. The Scottish

:10:06.:10:09.

Government won't comment on the court action for compensation, but

:10:10.:10:12.

say new legislation was brought in two years ago to replace the earlier

:10:13.:10:18.

flawed law. Years of uncertainty here have taken their toll, though.

:10:19.:10:29.

My husband... Jim has coped with it, being the head of the family, most

:10:30.:10:34.

of the worry has been an Jim's shoulders, that yes, it has had a

:10:35.:10:41.

terrible and detrimental affect my husband's health, on all of us.

:10:42.:10:44.

Could the controversial law aimed at tacking sectarianism in football

:10:45.:10:46.

Tomorrow at Holyrood, opposition MSPs are launching

:10:47.:10:52.

a challenge to the Government's laws around sectarian behaviour.

:10:53.:10:54.

So why is the offensive behaviour act so offensive to so many?

:10:55.:10:58.

Celtic Park in September, as the old firm teams took to the pitch in the

:10:59.:11:14.

home stands this, effigies draped in an orange scarf and a Rangers scarf.

:11:15.:11:20.

Police have made an arrest over that incident, as well as this, the

:11:21.:11:23.

trashing of the toilets by some Rangers fans. Four years ago the

:11:24.:11:28.

government 's solution was the offensive behaviour at football act,

:11:29.:11:32.

but opposition parties say it was a blunt instrument that damaged free

:11:33.:11:35.

speech. On Wednesday they will debate whether it should be

:11:36.:11:41.

repealed. This Labour MSP said his recent consultation shows large

:11:42.:11:47.

support for that stop you my view is football fans going to football

:11:48.:11:50.

matches should be singing football songs.

:11:51.:11:52.

One of the issues we've seen with the legislation is the police are

:11:53.:11:58.

confused about what songs are illegal and potentially cause public

:11:59.:12:01.

disorder. The judges are confused and the whole thing as ended up a

:12:02.:12:07.

real mess. One possible way forward is to make clubs legally responsible

:12:08.:12:15.

for fans behaviour. Ultimately it's the clubs that attracts people in

:12:16.:12:21.

that, by being entertainment, if you like. But the fans have got a

:12:22.:12:24.

loyalty to the clubs and if they realise the clubs were going to be

:12:25.:12:29.

punished severely, could be punished severely, it might well be that

:12:30.:12:32.

would be the thing, the trigger that would make them change their

:12:33.:12:37.

behaviour is. The legislation always arouses strong feeling among fans.

:12:38.:12:40.

One blogger says it's about free speech. If you take it to its

:12:41.:12:47.

logical conclusion, I may be offended by your tie, it doesn't

:12:48.:12:56.

mean the right I -- have the right to call the police and you taken

:12:57.:13:01.

away. It is nonsense. Many football fans agreed diarrhoea is a problem

:13:02.:13:04.

with Secretary is a problem with sectarianism in some parts of

:13:05.:13:06.

about limits on their free speech. about limits on their free speech.

:13:07.:13:12.

-- many football fans agree there is a problem with sectarianism. They

:13:13.:13:17.

will discuss it tomorrow in the Holyrood debate.

:13:18.:13:21.

A Labour MP who is on trial for allegedly kicking a Yes

:13:22.:13:23.

campaigner on the day of the independence referendum has

:13:24.:13:26.

St Helens South and Whiston MP Marie Rimmer faced two charges

:13:27.:13:29.

following an incident outside Shettleston Community Centre

:13:30.:13:31.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, the 69-year-old was found not guilty

:13:32.:13:36.

of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.

:13:37.:13:39.

Ms Rimmer denies the other charge that she assaulted a woman

:13:40.:13:42.

Stuart Earley had faced criticism over his pay packet of more

The Scottish and English FAs lobby Fifa to be allowed to wear poppies

:14:16.:14:22.

on their shirts for their match on Armistice Day.

:14:23.:14:24.

The runner Laura Muir says that reports of drugs testing failings

:14:25.:14:28.

at the Rio Games puts a question mark over some performances.

:14:29.:14:35.

Almost 90,000 people working for Scotland's public services

:14:36.:14:39.

could be replaced by a machine within the next 15 years, according

:14:40.:14:42.

The study, by Deloitte, says powerful computers will take

:14:43.:14:46.

the place of people who carry out routine jobs.

:14:47.:14:52.

Our business correspondent, David Henderson, is here and can

:14:53.:14:54.

They call this the rise of the machines, controlled

:14:55.:15:01.

by computers, which have become ever-more powerful

:15:02.:15:03.

That allows them to take on tasks normally done by people.

:15:04.:15:14.

The consultants, Deloitte, say the long-term impact could be huge.

:15:15.:15:16.

By 2030, they warn that automation could replace one out

:15:17.:15:18.

of every six jobs across Scotland's public sector.

:15:19.:15:22.

Almost every line of work will be affected, but the study says it

:15:23.:15:25.

could make our public services more productive and reduce

:15:26.:15:27.

Meet the new workers, helping to run a Scottish hospital. Robots like

:15:28.:15:39.

these ones clear floors, pack pills and deliver supplies to the wards.

:15:40.:15:43.

They never tire, rarely need a break and could replace thousands of

:15:44.:15:48.

humans. We estimate that one in six or 80,000 jobs in the public sector

:15:49.:15:53.

in Scotland could be automated by the year 2030. That's not going to

:15:54.:15:59.

happen overnight, but over time people's roles will change. There

:16:00.:16:03.

will be a large number of administrative roles that we simply

:16:04.:16:07.

won't need any more. Technology has already changed our public services.

:16:08.:16:10.

Bin collections like this are a thing of the past. Now, councils

:16:11.:16:15.

rely on fewer people and better machines. Railways too have been

:16:16.:16:22.

transformed with signs like these replaced by the digital revolution.

:16:23.:16:27.

In healthcare, new systems bring new benefits. Patients in remote areas

:16:28.:16:32.

can use a videolink to avoid a long journey to hospital. I spoke to a

:16:33.:16:39.

couple in Skye last month. That journey to come to hospital would

:16:40.:16:43.

have taken them two-and-a-half hours one way. That's a whole day to come

:16:44.:16:49.

and spend actually with 15 to 20 minutes in an out-patient clinic. .

:16:50.:16:53.

Think it's fantastic. That makes a difference to their quality of life.

:16:54.:16:56.

The rise of the machines is being difference to their quality of life.

:16:57.:17:02.

felt across the economy and not just by the public sector. Bringing huge

:17:03.:17:07.

change at work and at home, but it may take time to get the technology

:17:08.:17:12.

right. So, teething problems

:17:13.:17:15.

there for that robot. That sort of experience has prompted

:17:16.:17:17.

union leaders to appeal for caution. They say technology

:17:18.:17:20.

can only do so much. They point to big costly failures

:17:21.:17:22.

when computer systems were brought But it's unlikely they can halt this

:17:23.:17:27.

march towards automation, as our public services look for ways

:17:28.:17:35.

to make your money A look at other stories

:17:36.:17:38.

from across the country. A two-year-old boy is in a critical

condition after falling from a fourth floor window

in the Torry area of Aberdeen The toddler was initially taken

:17:50.:17:51.

to hospital in Aberdeen before Police say their inquiries

:17:52.:17:54.

are at an early stage, but it's not thought to be

:17:55.:17:58.

a criminal act. The 17,000-tonne oil rig which ran

near Carloway on Lewis in a storm while being towed

:18:13.:18:14.

on board a heavy lift ship. An eight-year-old boy was taken

:18:15.:18:22.

to hospital after a collision between a double-decker

:18:23.:18:24.

bus and an industrial vehicle on the southside

:18:25.:18:27.

of Glasgow this morning. He was treated by paramedics

:18:28.:18:29.

and taken to hospital, but his injuries are not thought

:18:30.:18:31.

to be serious. The 43-year-old bus driver has been

reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with alleged

within the community. Despite injuries to several key

:19:15.:19:28.

players, Celtic have made just one change for tonight's

:19:29.:19:30.

Champions League match in Germany. Brendan Rodgers' side take

:19:31.:19:36.

on Borussia Monchengladbach needing to win to have any chance

:19:37.:19:38.

of progressing in the tournament. The manager believes they can but,

:19:39.:19:42.

as Chris McLaughlin reports, the fans who've travelled don't

:19:43.:19:45.

share his optimism. A pretty peaceful morning in

:19:46.:19:53.

Borussia Monchengladbach, a lazy start to the day which didn't last

:19:54.:20:03.

long. Many are here without tickets, but with the belief in a man who has

:20:04.:20:07.

given them some European hope. We want to come here and the only thing

:20:08.:20:11.

we are concentrating on is giving it everything in the game. There is no

:20:12.:20:17.

doubt we can win here. If we perform to the level we know we can, then of

:20:18.:20:21.

course it's a possibility for us, or else we wouldn't be here. But the

:20:22.:20:26.

last time the sides met it was 2-0 to the Germans in Glasgow. Since

:20:27.:20:31.

then, Borussia Monchengladbach struggled domestically, Celtic not

:20:32.:20:33.

so much. As we've done in the league, we need to take that form

:20:34.:20:38.

and the winning mentality into the Champions League. I think if we can

:20:39.:20:42.

do that, then that will help us progress. Like I said, it's a

:20:43.:20:45.

massive game and a game we have to win. Here's why it's a must win.

:20:46.:20:51.

Celtic sit bottom of Group C. It's now very much a fight for third

:20:52.:20:55.

place. Points must be picked up tonight. I'm a Celtic man through

:20:56.:21:01.

and through. We will go there and try to do our best. But 2-1 Celtic.

:21:02.:21:07.

I'm going to go with my heart. I'm going to say we will win 2-1. Do you

:21:08.:21:12.

really think that We will be fortunate to get a draw. Celtic have

:21:13.:21:18.

injuries concerns ahead of this game this evening so too do Borussia

:21:19.:21:22.

Monchengladbach. Their manager said that Celtic's danger comes from the

:21:23.:21:26.

fact they have nothing to lose, oh, what these fans would give for a

:21:27.:21:30.

rare win on the road here in Germany this evening.

:21:31.:21:38.

Scotland's Athlete of the Year, Laura Muir, says that recent reports

:21:39.:21:40.

of "serious drugs testing failings" at the Rio Olympic Games

:21:41.:21:43.

puts a question mark over some performances.

:21:44.:21:45.

The middle-distance runner also believes that those who are caught

:21:46.:21:48.

should be thrown out of the sport for life.

:21:49.:21:50.

The latest accolade at the end of a remarkable season for Laura Muir.

:21:51.:22:04.

Voting Scotland's Athlete of the Year by her peers in the sport. It's

:22:05.:22:09.

a huge honour to be named Scottish Athlete of the Year, considering the

:22:10.:22:14.

long list we had this year. So many names. . Breaking Scottish records

:22:15.:22:21.

this year. The competition is very, very tough. Humble to have won the

:22:22.:22:28.

award. The Olympic Games were the main foe curse of Laura Muir's year.

:22:29.:22:33.

The news announced that thousands of Olympians were not drug tested in

:22:34.:22:38.

Rio. The revelations were condemned with Seb Coe saying it makes for

:22:39.:22:44.

uncomfortable reading. The Muir believes there are doubts over

:22:45.:22:47.

performances. There will be that question mark. You can't judge

:22:48.:22:50.

people until there is the proof, I guess as it were. Disappointed to

:22:51.:22:55.

hear that news. Athletics have come a big way this year, banning Russia

:22:56.:22:59.

from the Games. We are making a lot of big steps forward. I hope it

:23:00.:23:04.

continues. Keep it going. Laura Muir and her coach, Andy Young, train and

:23:05.:23:06.

compete with the hope that all and her coach, Andy Young, train and

:23:07.:23:09.

athletes are clean. Muir has no doubt what should happen to those

:23:10.:23:14.

athletes who take drugs. If your' caught, you're out. That is what I

:23:15.:23:18.

think of it. You shouldn't be given a second chance. For them to come

:23:19.:23:22.

back and do it again, the clean athletes are losing out. If people

:23:23.:23:27.

are caught with drugs, it's obvious it's their fault. They havic taken

:23:28.:23:30.

something, they should be out of the sport. Next on her schedule, the

:23:31.:23:41.

Cross Country Championship and off to South Africa for preparations for

:23:42.:23:45.

next year's World Championships with hopes of a cleaner sport in 2017.

:23:46.:23:54.

She's one of Scotland's top athletes and is European

:23:55.:23:56.

But speed-skater Elise Christie is still trying to get

:23:57.:23:59.

over her biggest sporting disappointment - even though it

:24:00.:24:02.

She trains fast and she talks fast. I like destroyed it to become world

:24:03.:24:15.

champion. She count top She has been me. Slow to get over her biggest let

:24:16.:24:20.

down. If I can accept what happened in Sochi I can move forward towards

:24:21.:24:24.

the next one. I'm in the process of doing that. In the Winter Olympics

:24:25.:24:30.

2014 she had hopes of medal glory. Things couldn't have turned out much

:24:31.:24:34.

worse. COMMENTATOR: She falls. I cannot

:24:35.:24:42.

believe it. She has been penalised so has Elise Christie. She was

:24:43.:24:45.

disqualified in all three events. She prepares for the fist event of

:24:46.:24:55.

this season, a World Cup meeting in Canada. I don't know how I will

:24:56.:25:00.

survive if it happens again if I have a terrible Olympics and I mess

:25:01.:25:04.

it up. All I'm thinking about is that I'm going to do it this time.

:25:05.:25:10.

That's my focus every day. That's why the European Champion is making

:25:11.:25:15.

things harder for herself in training by taking on the boys.

:25:16.:25:20.

Their power is higher than mine. I have to get it spot on to overtake.

:25:21.:25:27.

It taught me about getting the things right, not getting it right

:25:28.:25:31.

because I'm faster. She will be back racing the girls this weekend, or

:25:32.:25:33.

rather the world's fastest women. Now here's Laura Maciver

:25:34.:25:37.

with details of Scotland 2016. Tonight, we discuss Miss Carriages

:25:38.:25:45.

of justice after an event by the Innocence Project in Glasgow. The

:25:46.:25:51.

row with Fifa over footballer's wearing poppy armbands as England

:25:52.:25:54.

and Scotland play on Remembrance Day. Scotland 2016, BBC Two,

:25:55.:26:00.

Scotland, 10.30pm tonight. A cracking start to November, blue

:26:01.:26:10.

sky and sunshine around today and plenty of photos from our weather

:26:11.:26:14.

watchers coming in. The clear skies mean it will be chilly for many. We

:26:15.:26:21.

are dragging in cold air. As it comes over the sea surface picking

:26:22.:26:25.

up enough warmth to produce showers to the north and north-east. That is

:26:26.:26:30.

what we saw today. Windy here with gale force gusts for Orkney and

:26:31.:26:32.

Shetland for the next few hours. Elsewhere it will be dry, the wind

:26:33.:26:37.

will be lighter, it will be colder. Temperatures in towns and and cities

:26:38.:26:40.

around three to five Celsius. In the countryside where we see the blues

:26:41.:26:44.

on the charts down to freezing or sub zero. Tomorrow it's a chilly

:26:45.:26:48.

start. Hours showers to the north and north-east. They will fade away

:26:49.:26:58.

by the afternoon. Temperatures around nine or ten Celsius. The

:26:59.:27:01.

winds will back westerly by the end of the afternoon. More cloud around

:27:02.:27:05.

the north-west. That is the weather front approaching, the sunshine

:27:06.:27:09.

turning hazy by the afternoon. Elsewhere, for the north-east, after

:27:10.:27:12.

a showery morning, dry and bright to end the afternoon. As we head

:27:13.:27:15.

through the rest of the afternoon into the evening we will watch that

:27:16.:27:18.

weather system arrive from the north-west. That signals a change as

:27:19.:27:22.

we head through towards Thursday, with the high pressure we have had

:27:23.:27:27.

slipping away southwards. These weather fronts sweep their way in. A

:27:28.:27:31.

warm front pushing through, so somewhat milder conditions as we

:27:32.:27:35.

head through towards Thursday, fairly cloudy and damp, compared

:27:36.:27:38.

with today and tomorrow. The heaviest and persistent rain in the

:27:39.:27:43.

west and north-west, sopt some wet weather further east as well.

:27:44.:27:48.

Friday, low pressure overhead, a flabby low, not much in the way of

:27:49.:27:51.

wind, a few showers. That then clears away as we head towards the

:27:52.:27:55.

weekend. We will see a few showers on Saturday and Sunday, but the big

:27:56.:27:58.

difference will be the cold plunge from the north. Really quite chilly

:27:59.:28:01.

as we head through towards the weekend. That's the forecast.

:28:02.:28:02.

Jackie. Thank you very much.
