An investigation uncovers a catalogue of failures that

:00:00.:00:07.

contributed to the death of a man who should have been

:00:08.:00:11.

25 year old Dean Saunders electrocuted himself in jail a year

:00:12.:00:20.

ago despite repeated warnings from his family that he

:00:21.:00:22.

I'm telling you know, if you do not put my son

:00:23.:00:27.

back on constant watch he will kill himself.

:00:28.:00:29.

You won't be able to say you didn't know.

:00:30.:00:32.

His death comes as new figures are expected to show record levels

:00:33.:00:35.

Theresa May was informed of a Trident test carried out

:00:36.:00:47.

when she became prime minister - but Downing Street won't comment

:00:48.:00:49.

The government says it will focus on science, technology and

:00:50.:00:57.

infrastructure in the post-Brexit economy.

:00:58.:00:59.

Overcooked toast, potatoes and crisps -

:01:00.:01:00.

government scientists warn they could increase the risk

:01:01.:01:02.

And coming up in the sport on BBC News, could Nicola Adams be turning

to pursue other career opportunities.

:01:11.:01:30.

Good afternoon and welcome to the BBC News at One.

:01:31.:01:37.

An investigation into the death of a prisoner has found a catalogue

:01:38.:01:40.

of failures contributed to his suicide and he should have

:01:41.:01:43.

25 year old Dean Saunders electrocuted himself

:01:44.:01:46.

at Chelmsford prison in Essex in January last year.

:01:47.:01:50.

The Prison Ombudsman said that staff ignored significant risk factors

:01:51.:01:53.

when they cut back observation of him in jail.

:01:54.:01:58.

It comes as figures due out later this week are expected to show

:01:59.:02:02.

the number of suicides in prisons in England and Wales last year

:02:03.:02:04.

Here's our social affairs correspondent Michael Buchanan.

:02:05.:02:10.

Dean Saunders had no previous history of mental illness

:02:11.:02:14.

but in December 2015 the young dad suddenly became paranoid

:02:15.:02:16.

and delusional, convinced he had to kill himself.

:02:17.:02:20.

I think I'm still, on a day-to-day basis, trying to understand

:02:21.:02:23.

His family were plunged into despair.

:02:24.:02:28.

Within hours he attacked his brother and father with a knife.

:02:29.:02:33.

Already injured, Mark could only stand and watch as his son took

:02:34.:02:36.

He brought the knife down and it did not cut.

:02:37.:02:45.

And that's when we both realised that in his haste to pick the knife

:02:46.:02:52.

up it was the back of the blade that had gone to his throat.

:02:53.:02:56.

As Dean tried to kill himself Mark was stabbed in his stomach

:02:57.:03:00.

but held the knife in place to save his son's life.

:03:01.:03:03.

At that time I thought I cannot let him have the knife.

:03:04.:03:08.

And I put my hand over the top of his so he could not pull it out.

:03:09.:03:14.

He tried to pull it out, I held it in, I could not let him have it.

:03:15.:03:18.

Dean Saunders was charged with attempted murder and sent

:03:19.:03:22.

Though initially on constant watch, three staff, none

:03:23.:03:28.

of whom were medically trained or had read his notes,

:03:29.:03:30.

reduced his observations to every half hour.

:03:31.:03:34.

His family pleaded with officials not to do it, but were turned

:03:35.:03:36.

I said, I'm telling you now, if you don't put my son back

:03:37.:03:43.

on constant watch then he will kill himself.

:03:44.:03:46.

You won't be able to say you weren't aware, because you know.

:03:47.:03:51.

If he kills himself it will be your fault.

:03:52.:03:55.

Efforts were made to move Dean to a secure hospital but a shortage

:03:56.:03:59.

of beds and delays over Christmas and New Year meant

:04:00.:04:02.

On January 4th of last year, Dean Saunders killed himself.

:04:03.:04:10.

His partner now has to raise their son without his father.

:04:11.:04:14.

I suppose I kind of promised Dean, there will never be a day that

:04:15.:04:24.

will pass that Teddy won't know how much you love him.

:04:25.:04:30.

Dean was so looking forward to the point where Teddy would be

:04:31.:04:35.

walking around and running and kicking a football with him.

:04:36.:04:39.

Two days after Dean went, Teddy started walking.

:04:40.:04:42.

Today's report says Dean Saunders should have been in hospital,

:04:43.:04:49.

not in prison, but basic failure contributed to this loving

:04:50.:04:52.

This report comes in a week where there will be focus on the numbers

:04:53.:05:07.

of suicide that have taken place in prisons in England and Wales in the

:05:08.:05:12.

past year. Indeed. Divisional figures provided to one charity

:05:13.:05:17.

suggest the number will be 113, in 2016. If it is around that figure it

:05:18.:05:22.

will show numbers have doubled in nearly five years. What the charity

:05:23.:05:26.

are saying is, when you look at things like staff and budget cuts,

:05:27.:05:31.

at the same time as a rise in prison population, what you have is a toxic

:05:32.:05:36.

mix in these places and prisons themselves are simply not safe for

:05:37.:05:38.

an awful lot of vulnerable individuals. The point the Saunders

:05:39.:05:43.

family want to make, reiterated in this report from the prison

:05:44.:05:48.

ombudsman, prisons simply aren't learning lessons. While the death of

:05:49.:05:53.

Dean Saunders was tragic circumstances, there have been four

:05:54.:05:56.

other suicide at Chelmsford prison, and the same issues have come up

:05:57.:06:02.

again and again. What the Saunders family and many other campaigners

:06:03.:06:05.

want is for prisons to start learning from these incidents, and

:06:06.:06:11.

not, as we heard in the inquest, the paperwork becoming a tick box

:06:12.:06:12.

exercise. Downing Street says Theresa May

:06:13.:06:22.

was told about a Trident missile test carried out in June last year -

:06:23.:06:25.

when she became prime minister. But Number 10 wouldn't confirm

:06:26.:06:28.

or deny reports that the unarmed missile had malfunctioned

:06:29.:06:30.

and veered off course. The defence secretary will now make

:06:31.:06:32.

a statement to MPs this afternoon. Our assistant political editor

:06:33.:06:35.

Norman Smith is in Westminster. The Prime Minister was under huge

:06:36.:06:41.

pressure to reveal how much she knew. We have a better idea but not

:06:42.:06:46.

the full picture. We don't. There is it growing clamour across all

:06:47.:06:49.

parties at Westminster for clarity about what on earth happened with

:06:50.:06:52.

this apparently botched Trident test. Some reports suggesting the

:06:53.:06:58.

missile was so badly off course it was even heading in the direction of

:06:59.:07:02.

the United States. And yet the response from number ten so far has

:07:03.:07:05.

been to pretty much hunkered down and say as little as possible.

:07:06.:07:10.

Theresa May yesterday refusing to answer four times what she knew and

:07:11.:07:14.

when. And today her press spokesman doing pretty much the same sort of

:07:15.:07:19.

thing, merely saying that she was given a briefing about nuclear

:07:20.:07:22.

issues when she moved into number ten and that included this test I

:07:23.:07:28.

HMS vengeance. Crucially not saying on whether she'd been told that has

:07:29.:07:34.

had gone wrong or even indeed if the test had gone wrong. The difficulty

:07:35.:07:38.

is that some of her supporters, former defence ministers say the

:07:39.:07:43.

position is simply not tenable, that the truth, in effect, will be out.

:07:44.:07:47.

And that it is not sufficient to say this is an operational matter of

:07:48.:07:52.

national security. As they say that other countries, including Russia,

:07:53.:07:55.

will probably have known about this test and whether the missile had

:07:56.:07:59.

gone off course. More than that, if you are asking Parliament to

:08:00.:08:05.

sanction ?40 billion of additional spending to upgrade Trident, then

:08:06.:08:09.

MPs have a legitimate right to know. You sense that when the Defence

:08:10.:08:12.

Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, appears in the Commons this

:08:13.:08:16.

afternoon, not voluntarily, he has been forced to appear there, but

:08:17.:08:20.

when he does so he's going to have to do be pretty good at the

:08:21.:08:24.

political bodycheck and Stonewall. Because he's going to face an awful

:08:25.:08:25.

lot of questions. Thank you. The Prime Minister has launched

:08:26.:08:30.

the Government's new industrial strategy for a post-Brexit Britain

:08:31.:08:32.

during her first Cabinet meeting Theresa May says the government

:08:33.:08:34.

will take a "new, active role" - focusing on science,

:08:35.:08:39.

technology and infrastructure. Our industry correspondent

:08:40.:08:40.

John Moylan reports. How can the government drives the

:08:41.:08:52.

economy forward? For the Business Secretary, places like this are part

:08:53.:08:56.

of the answer. It's a new automotive innovation Centre in Warwick,

:08:57.:09:02.

designed to get the centre firing on all cylinders. One of the big things

:09:03.:09:06.

of our industrial strategy is to build on our great successes, but

:09:07.:09:13.

also to make sure we drive growth in all parts of the country. The

:09:14.:09:15.

industrial strategy will be committed to driving very hard to

:09:16.:09:20.

spread the opportunities right across the country and to drive not

:09:21.:09:26.

just jobs but really good, well paying jobs, in all parts of the

:09:27.:09:31.

country. The strategy was unveiled by the Prime Minister at the

:09:32.:09:34.

regional Cabinet meeting this morning in Daresbury in Cheshire. A

:09:35.:09:40.

Green paper sets out key areas from research and development to skills

:09:41.:09:42.

and infrastructure, to boost productivity. But will it help all

:09:43.:09:48.

regions of the UK? We need an industrial strategy that combines

:09:49.:09:51.

hard and soft infrastructure. We desperately need the transport

:09:52.:09:54.

spending the government has talked about and is yet to deliver. But we

:09:55.:09:59.

also need to is his skills strategy, we need to see education right back

:10:00.:10:03.

to early years if we are owing to make sure the Northern economy can

:10:04.:10:07.

flourish. The strategy will play to our strengths, backing areas like

:10:08.:10:10.

battery technology and life sciences. Other sectors will also be

:10:11.:10:14.

able to strike deals for government support. Over the years governments

:10:15.:10:19.

of all shades have blown hot and cold over whether we need an

:10:20.:10:23.

industrial strategy or not. The big test of this plan is whether it can

:10:24.:10:27.

get the economy firing on all cylinders as we prepare to leave the

:10:28.:10:32.

EU. This high-tech auto firm in Berkshire makes gearboxes for racing

:10:33.:10:36.

cars. Its boss once any strategy to deliver certainty for the long-term.

:10:37.:10:42.

We invest millions of pounds a year into people coming to training

:10:43.:10:45.

coming to the expertise coming to technology, into machinery. We are

:10:46.:10:50.

looking for some degree of certainty that the environment we operate in,

:10:51.:10:55.

there is going to be some stability for it right through, so we know if

:10:56.:10:59.

we make the investment we can get a return because things are not going

:11:00.:11:05.

to change around it. ?4.7 billion of funding announced last autumn will

:11:06.:11:08.

back the plan, and there is new money to boost skills in science,

:11:09.:11:13.

technology and maths education. Today Labour called it too little,

:11:14.:11:18.

too late, and the Lib Dems said any strategy while leaving the EU single

:11:19.:11:19.

market is laughable. Our political correspondent

:11:20.:11:22.

Eleanor Garnier is in How important will this be for the

:11:23.:11:32.

government? Of course the biggest challenge in Theresa May's inbox is

:11:33.:11:37.

Brexit. And this is all about equipping the country, getting it

:11:38.:11:41.

ready for Brexit, getting the economy ready for Brexit, too. And

:11:42.:11:46.

that means improving productivity and boosting skills up and down the

:11:47.:11:51.

country, and that's why Theresa May has come to this high-tech campus

:11:52.:11:55.

near Warrington to emphasise the importance of regional development,

:11:56.:12:00.

but also to highlight her government's commitment to investing

:12:01.:12:03.

in places like the North of England and the Midlands. This is not the

:12:04.:12:06.

first industrial strategy we've had from a government of course. What is

:12:07.:12:13.

interesting about this one, is that it is far more active. I think that

:12:14.:12:17.

shows Theresa May thinks the benefits of business success will

:12:18.:12:20.

only spread around the country with the help of government pushing it

:12:21.:12:24.

along. Pressure is on the government to make sure this is not just about

:12:25.:12:28.

one-off cash injections here and there, but it's about the long-term

:12:29.:12:32.

impact. And of course to make sure that those new skills are developed

:12:33.:12:35.

in time ready for life outside the EU. There is also pressure to make

:12:36.:12:40.

sure that this does reach every part of the UK, and not just London and

:12:41.:12:45.

the south-east, and that's of course to meet the government aim of an

:12:46.:12:50.

economy that works for everyone. Labour, though, is worried about the

:12:51.:12:54.

money. They say there simply isn't enough cash being put in to equip

:12:55.:12:57.

the country for the challenges of the 21st century. Thank you.

:12:58.:13:00.

President Trump says he has a busy week ahead -

:13:01.:13:02.

with the focus on manufacturing jobs and national security.

:13:03.:13:05.

That's what he tweeted a short time ago at the start of his first full

:13:06.:13:08.

Our correspondent Richard Lister looks at what else may be

:13:09.:13:12.

This is Donald Trump's workplace, now.

:13:13.:13:20.

He's embarking on programme of radical change.

:13:21.:13:21.

And he's had the Oval Office redecorated, too.

:13:22.:13:25.

Bringing in gold curtains and a bust of Winston Churchill.

:13:26.:13:28.

He said today will be his first proper working day.

:13:29.:13:34.

So what does his to-do list look like?

:13:35.:13:36.

If he sticks to his campaign promises for day one,

:13:37.:13:38.

The former President's health-care reforms which Donald Trump actually

:13:39.:13:45.

He's said he'll withdraw from the transpacific

:13:46.:13:52.

trade partnership with 12 Pacific Rim countries.

:13:53.:13:56.

The White House insists that will happen.

:13:57.:13:59.

President Trump said on day one he would also abolish gun free zones

:14:00.:14:02.

in places like schools, but that will take legislation.

:14:03.:14:04.

I would very, very strongly get rid of the attack on the border.

:14:05.:14:08.

We have a border that is like a piece of Swiss cheese.

:14:09.:14:11.

That border will be the single first thing I do.

:14:12.:14:17.

He has changed his position on the new border wall suggesting it

:14:18.:14:20.

wouldn't be built along the whole border and he might not insist

:14:21.:14:23.

But his supporters will expect some action quickly.

:14:24.:14:30.

And it's not just American borders he's looking at.

:14:31.:14:32.

President Trump has pledged to move the US embassy in Israel

:14:33.:14:35.

The Palestinians say this would undermine their own

:14:36.:14:41.

The White House has confirmed that initial talks are underway.

:14:42.:14:46.

Other foreign capitals are also waiting to see

:14:47.:14:47.

Moscow said today it expected to arrange a first phone call

:14:48.:14:52.

between Presidents Putin and Trump soon.

:14:53.:14:58.

TRANSLATION: We see quite a few things eye to eye on foreign policy.

:14:59.:15:07.

Some things Donald Trump has said closely overlap

:15:08.:15:09.

with President Putin's vision of foreign policy goals.

:15:10.:15:12.

Britain's Theresa May has a ready bagged the first meeting

:15:13.:15:15.

Are you looking forward to meeting President Trump?

:15:16.:15:18.

If his first tweet of the day is any guide, President Trump's primary

:15:19.:15:23.

focus for now will be on domestic issues.

:15:24.:15:25.

Jobs, national security, and manufacturing.

:15:26.:15:27.

The issues on which those who voted for him will judge his presidency.

:15:28.:15:31.

Our correspondent Gary O'Donoghue is in Washington.

:15:32.:15:37.

What an extraordinary start. Absolutely extraordinary started. A

:15:38.:15:44.

battle with the press, over the weekend, over the numbers that

:15:45.:15:50.

attended his inauguration. Perhaps setting the tone for a

:15:51.:15:54.

confrontational and abusive relationship to go forward. This

:15:55.:15:57.

first week he has promised to hit the ground run, today he is having

:15:58.:16:01.

meetings with business leaders and union, which I think is an

:16:02.:16:04.

indication perhaps of trade will be one of the first things he takes

:16:05.:16:07.

concrete steps on, we are hearing that he is planning to sign an

:16:08.:16:13.

executive order, pulling out of the trans Pacific partnership. That will

:16:14.:16:16.

is that deal with the countries in athat that accounts for something

:16:17.:16:21.

like 40% of world GDP that seems dead in the water and what will

:16:22.:16:25.

happen with the wall. Will we see actions on signing some kind of

:16:26.:16:31.

order to start building that wall along the Mexicaner? He has problems

:16:32.:16:35.

with cab neat nominees in the Senatement only two of them are in

:16:36.:16:39.

place. Two more are likely to be voted on this afternoon, but this

:16:40.:16:44.

time, this stage during the Obama's first administration, he had seven

:16:45.:16:46.

in place already. Thank you.

:16:47.:16:50.

And at 7 o'clock the BBC is launching a new series covering

:16:51.:16:54.

Donald Trump's first days as President, the Brexit

:16:55.:16:56.

That's 100 Days with Katty Kay live in Washington

:16:57.:17:02.

If you regularly roast, fry or grill potatoes and bread

:17:03.:17:09.

at high temperatures for a long time - it could increase the risk

:17:10.:17:12.

of cancer - that's according to government scientists.

:17:13.:17:14.

The Food Standards Agency says a potentially harmful compound,

:17:15.:17:17.

But other experts say the focus should be on far more well

:17:18.:17:23.

established foods and habits with links to cancer -

:17:24.:17:25.

Our Health Correspondent Robert Pigott reports.

:17:26.:17:31.

A new warning about food, and one that strikes at the heart

:17:32.:17:34.

Food scientists say best selling products such as crisps, chips,

:17:35.:17:41.

cakes and biscuits contain a molecule called acrylamide that

:17:42.:17:46.

It's created when the sugars in these starchy foods react

:17:47.:17:53.

with the molecules that make up protein at temperatures

:17:54.:17:55.

Starchy foods, when you cook them at high temperatures, toast, roast,

:17:56.:18:00.

The longer and the hotter, the more acrylamide there will be.

:18:01.:18:05.

We know in animal studies it can create cancer.

:18:06.:18:07.

So we are concerned if there is the same mechanism in people,

:18:08.:18:14.

The official advice is to bake, fry and grill food to a lighter colour,

:18:15.:18:18.

follow instruction on packaging carefully, avoid storing

:18:19.:18:19.

potatoes in the fridge, where the cold produces more sugar,

:18:20.:18:22.

and eat a balanced diet to minimise the risk of cancer.

:18:23.:18:24.

Even our daily toast is under scrutiny.

:18:25.:18:31.

The Food Standards Agency says we should go for gold, rather

:18:32.:18:33.

With toast on the menu at this Glasgow cafe,

:18:34.:18:39.

Because we eat quite a lot of burnt toast.

:18:40.:18:55.

Doesn't matter what your eating, there's always something to say,

:18:56.:19:05.

The Food Standards Agency says although manufacturers have

:19:06.:19:08.

significantly reduced the acrylamide content of processed food, over

:19:09.:19:10.

Acrylamide has been round since someone stuck a piece of bread

:19:11.:19:17.

There is no strong evidence that it causes cancer in humans.

:19:18.:19:22.

If you give massive doses to mice they have an increased risk

:19:23.:19:25.

in tumours, but the amount people consume is 100 times less than that.

:19:26.:19:30.

Cancer Research UK says acrylamide may pose a risk to people,

:19:31.:19:33.

but there are bigger proven dangers such as being obese, drinking too

:19:34.:19:35.

. Only two of them are in place. Two more are likely to be voted on this

:19:36.:19:52.

afternoon, but this time, this stage during the Obama's first

:19:53.:19:53.

administration, he had seven in place already.

:19:54.:19:55.

Thank you. An investigation uncoffered a catalogue of failures

:19:56.:19:57.

that contributed to the death of a chance ho should have been in

:19:58.:19:58.

hospital, not prison. And coming up. A beautiful name

:19:59.:20:00.

for a lovely village. The new town of the 60s

his way, he is the fourth driver we have stopped here this morning, and

we have only been out for an hour. No wonder today's figures show such

a huge increase in the number of drivers using their phones while at

operation last November, nearly 8,000 people were stopped using a

mobile phone. That is nearly four times the number, just two years

combination of education, enforcement on our part and changing

New efforts to resolve the six-year old conflict in Syria

:22:53.:22:56.

It's the first time talks between the Syrian government

:22:57.:22:59.

and rebels have been convened by Russia, Turkey and Iran,

:23:00.:23:02.

Our chief international correspondent Lyse Doucet

:23:03.:23:04.

The talks are under way, what has been said this morning? Well, you

:23:05.:23:18.

can see the huddles behind me as journalists from around the world

:23:19.:23:22.

surround either the Government representatives or the opposition

:23:23.:23:25.

representatives, when they come out to brief the press. There is a huge

:23:26.:23:28.

interest in what is happening here, because as you say so much the new,

:23:29.:23:32.

it is the first time that Syria talks over this last six years of

:23:33.:23:37.

the conflict have been convened here in Kazakhstan in Russia's backyard,

:23:38.:23:41.

the first time they have been sponsored by Russia, Turkey and

:23:42.:23:45.

Iran. And the first time that it is the rebel commanders who are sitting

:23:46.:23:49.

at the table and the day began with an Opening Ceremony where again for

:23:50.:23:53.

the first time, rebel commanders sat at the same table in public, with

:23:54.:23:57.

Syrian military generals. Nobody walked out. They listened to their

:23:58.:24:03.

opening statements. Now that might seem like a small step but after six

:24:04.:24:07.

years of a devastating war, and all of your viewers would have seen that

:24:08.:24:12.

the horrific images, this is one small step forward, because it is

Syria, no sooner than the opening ceremony end that the head of the

Government delegation accused the opposition of making a speech he

:27:52.:27:54.

its 50th birthday today. Originally designated a "new town",

:27:55.:27:56.

it's now home to 270,000 people and contributes more

:27:57.:27:59.

than ?10 billion As Graham Satchell reports,

:28:00.:28:00.

the town was a unique experiment Milton Keynes, a beautiful name

:28:01.:28:04.

for a lovely village. Milton Keynes was the last

:28:05.:28:11.

of the post-war new towns. A collection of villages half way

:28:12.:28:13.

between London and Birmingham, it would become home to a quarter

:28:14.:28:16.

a million people. The big inspiration behind

:28:17.:28:19.

Milton Keynes is an American urban designer called Melvin Webber,

:28:20.:28:22.

who wanted to create community without propinquity,

:28:23.:28:24.

which basically means loads of people together, but not

:28:25.:28:25.

all densely packed in. Each square a community,

:28:26.:28:34.

with no real centre. An American-style town,

:28:35.:28:41.

built for the car. Embedded in the master

:28:42.:28:43.

plan were principles. One of them was freedom of choice,

:28:44.:28:47.

and if you think about the grid, it always gives you the option

:28:48.:28:50.

to go another way. Ken Baker was part of the original

:28:51.:28:52.

design team 50 years ago. Milton Keynes has

:28:53.:28:55.

the freedom of choice, And while some do hate it,

:28:56.:28:59.

Milton Keynes is surprising. It has 180 miles of footpaths

:29:00.:29:10.

and cycle tracks, the fastest growing economy in the UK,

:29:11.:29:12.

22 million trees and shrubs. Jill Prince has taken a series

new garden towns and villages, so can they learn lessons

:29:31.:29:43.

from Milton Keynes? Well, this is not part

:29:44.:29:45.

of the original master Milton Keynes is itself

:29:46.:29:47.

is expanding rapidly, but campaigners say new developments

:29:48.:29:52.

here are too densely populated and the original principles

:29:53.:29:55.

of the town have been lost. Myopic people with the wrong agenda,

:29:56.:29:58.

who don't realised the greatness of what they have got,

:29:59.:30:00.

that has been copied all over the world, but here

:30:01.:30:03.

they are busy destroying it. Love it or hate it, nothing

:30:04.:30:05.

with the open spaces, the high minded design principles

:30:06.:30:08.

has been tried since. And 50 years on, nothing

:30:09.:30:10.

like it is planned today. Graham Satchell, BBC

:30:11.:30:12.

News, Milton Keynes. Thousands of apassengers are facing

:30:13.:30:32.

flight delays caused by thick fog in southern England. Heathrow said it

:30:33.:30:39.

cancelled 100 flights because of reduced visibility and City Airport

:30:40.:30:42.

cancelled more. With more here is Chris. Yes, the fog causing problems

:30:43.:30:46.

at airports although the visibility is picking up. It did cause problems

:30:47.:30:50.

not just at the airports earlier today, but also out on the roads,

:30:51.:30:55.

this was captured by one of our weather watcher, the fog in West

:30:56.:31:01.

Sussex and we still have fog patches in the south coast of Sussex,

:31:02.:31:04.

Hampshire and Kent. Things should improve slowly I think this

:31:05.:31:07.

afternoon, across the north and east of the UK yes, in Scotland, we have

:31:08.:31:11.

some sunshine here, and one of our weather watchers sent us this

:31:12.:31:15.

stunning scene, the sunshine in Midlothian, as we go through the

:31:16.:31:18.

afternoon, what will happen, this lump of cloud we have moving in in

:31:19.:31:21.

the Midland, it will push into south-east England. That will

:31:22.:31:26.

probably help lift some of the fog. It will probably stay misty,

:31:27.:31:29.

south-west England, southern Wales in the sunshine, but the north-west

:31:30.:31:33.

of Wales, staying cloudy, one or two showers coming in from the Irish

:31:34.:31:36.

Sea. In Northern Ireland, mixed conditions here, we have some

:31:37.:31:39.

sunshine, some cloud and mist, temperatures in the sunshine s eight

:31:40.:31:44.

degrees in Belfast, northern around eastern Scotland having fine sunny

:31:45.:31:51.

weather through the rest of day. So a big mixture of conditions. It

:31:52.:31:57.

Defra have very high... Probably conditions should improve as we

:31:58.:32:00.

start to draw morph a south-westerly wind overnight. That will bring

:32:01.:32:05.

milder air in. It will push into western Scotland too. For England

:32:06.:32:07.

and Wales it's a different story, again, we are looking at the thes

the coldest weapons with temperatures down to minus six and

again, mist and fog will make an unwelcome return. The foggiest

:32:20.:32:23.

weather will be in the Midlands, into central southern England as

:32:24.:32:27.

well, but there is a potential for getting transport disruption as we

:32:28.:32:29.

start off the day on Tuesday, and some of the fog will linger and

:32:30.:32:34.

loiter into the afternoon, but there will be sunshine outside of the fog

:32:35.:32:37.

banks in England and Wales, with another quiet cold day of weather

:32:38.:32:42.

coming up. For Northern Ireland and Scotland, a south-westerly breeze,

:32:43.:32:45.

bringing cloud, one or two spots of rain, but also bringing milder

:32:46.:32:48.

weather, so temperatures up to nine or ten degrees for the lines of

:32:49.:32:52.

Belfast, and into the western side of Scotland as well. Now we are

:32:53.:32:55.

going to see further changes in our weather towards the middle part of

:32:56.:33:00.

week. As high pressure slips to Europe we will start to get tightly

packed isobar, the winds will be strengthening, coming up from the

south, the winds will help clear the fog and the winds will bring us some

milder weather so towards the end of the week, most of us should have
