Welcome to Friday's BBC Channel Islands News.

:00:00.:00:00.

A St Helier nursery is to close, leaving parents and children

:00:00.:00:10.

Will absolutely devastated. We were not expecting it at all. There was

:00:11.:00:22.

no morning that this was going to happen. -- there was no warning.

:00:23.:00:26.

Innovation backlash - calls for Senator Ozouf to resign.

:00:27.:00:28.

Failure to identify inadequate care - we'll have the latest

:00:29.:00:30.

And this weekend it's less windy and less cold, but still quite blustery

:00:31.:00:41.

tomorrow with the risk of a few showers. I'll have all the details

:00:42.:00:42.

later in the programme. Shocked and angry -

:00:43.:00:49.

that's the reaction of parents in Jersey on the closure

:00:50.:00:51.

of a St Helier nursery. Avranches Nursery looks after 50

:00:52.:00:55.

children, but with it running at a loss of almost ?100,000

:00:56.:00:59.

every year, the parish says We are absolutely devastated. We

:01:00.:01:14.

were not expecting it at all. There was no warning that this was going

:01:15.:01:18.

to happen. It shocking, really. To be honest, I was angry. I was angry

:01:19.:01:24.

for all the kids and the staff. She says used to be stuff. It's going to

:01:25.:01:25.

be such a change. Today's reaction by parents who've

:01:26.:01:27.

just found out their children's We haven't been allowed to film

:01:28.:01:29.

inside Avranches Nursery, and the staff were advised

:01:30.:01:33.

not to speak to the media. The nursery behind me has been open

:01:34.:01:38.

for nearly 25 years, but with a loss The Constable says he couldn't

:01:39.:01:43.

justify keeping it open any longer. Clearly one of the issues we've had

:01:44.:01:51.

to wrestle with is Avranches Nursery doesn't simply cater

:01:52.:01:54.

for parishioners, it also caters for more than 50% of

:01:55.:01:56.

the users are from outside the parish, and it's much harder

:01:57.:02:00.

for the ratepayers of St Helier to justify a loss of that magnitude

:02:01.:02:03.

when it's not even helping Parish plans to move the nursery

:02:04.:02:06.

to another site were rejected by planning and other

:02:07.:02:14.

options were exhausted. Today's decision has left

:02:15.:02:17.

questions over staff jobs, and parents with seven months

:02:18.:02:21.

to find a new nursery There are calls for

:02:22.:02:24.

a Jersey Minister to resign following a damning report

:02:25.:02:34.

into a taxpayer-funded loan scheme. The Innovation Fund was set up

:02:35.:02:36.

to support new business ideas but it's potentially lost

:02:37.:02:42.

?1.4 million of public money. Some politicians say

:02:43.:02:45.

Senator Philip Ozouf, who oversaw the fund,

:02:46.:02:48.

should step down. When a fund is set up, the fund set

:02:49.:03:00.

up by Treasury resources and then passed to the relevant department

:03:01.:03:03.

for administration. So the fund itself was set up under Philip

:03:04.:03:07.

Ozouf's watch as Treasury minister. I was asked to take responsibility

:03:08.:03:16.

to sort out issues to do with the innovation fund, and that's what

:03:17.:03:19.

I've done. I call upon people to read the report, because I've been

:03:20.:03:23.

vindicated in the actions I've taken to stop the waste of public money.

:03:24.:03:26.

A senior Guernsey midwife accused of misconduct in the death

:03:27.:03:29.

of a newborn baby initially claimed the care provided had

:03:30.:03:32.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council says Lisa Granville's initial

:03:33.:03:35.

assessment "flavoured" the subsequent investigation,

:03:36.:03:38.

It follows the death of a baby almost three years ago.

:03:39.:03:43.

Mike Wilkins has been looking at this week's

:03:44.:03:48.

These three Guernsey midwives are charged with misconduct.

:03:49.:03:53.

From left to right, Lisa Granville, Antonia Manousaki,

:03:54.:03:56.

They were working on the Loveridge Ward when a baby died.

:03:57.:04:02.

An investigation found that the baby's heartbeat

:04:03.:04:04.

hadn't been properly monitored and its condition should've been

:04:05.:04:07.

The NMC also said the midwives administered medication

:04:08.:04:11.

Today at a hearing held by the Nursing and Midwifery Council,

:04:12.:04:17.

it was revealed that investigations into the death were hampered

:04:18.:04:19.

because one of the midwives, Manousaki, who was from Greece,

:04:20.:04:22.

struggled with English and that she didn't understand

:04:23.:04:25.

There were also claims that midwives were reluctant to call

:04:26.:04:31.

The NMC claims that had the death of another baby in 2012 been

:04:32.:04:36.

adequately investigate, then the death of the baby in 2014

:04:37.:04:38.

It's been quite unsettling for the people to hear some of the details

:04:39.:04:57.

that have emerged. But I have too stressed that the NMC have been back

:04:58.:05:00.

to the hospital behind me several times and say that it's made

:05:01.:05:01.

tremendous progress. But with several weeks to go

:05:02.:05:03.

and more witnesses to give evidence, a clearer picture should emerge

:05:04.:05:06.

as the hearing continues. Scrutiny leaders say they've

:05:07.:05:15.

been denied the chance to review borrowing plans

:05:16.:05:17.

for Jersey's new hospital. The States will debate

:05:18.:05:19.

borrowing up to ?400 million in the States next week,

:05:20.:05:21.

but a scrutiny panel says the Treasury Minister refused

:05:22.:05:23.

to delay it by four weeks to give enough time for experts

:05:24.:05:26.

to examine the plans. This is the highest level of debt

:05:27.:05:41.

that the island has ever seen. Its ?400 million, and it's important

:05:42.:05:44.

that time should have been allowed for it to be looked at properly and

:05:45.:05:47.

independently, and that is not the case.

:05:48.:05:48.

Changes to Guernsey's education system seem to be being imposed

:05:49.:05:51.

on teachers, rather than being made with their input.

:05:52.:05:53.

That's the warning from the largest teacher's union in the island.

:05:54.:05:56.

The Committee for Education, Sport and Culture says a forthcoming

:05:57.:05:59.

workshop for States members is just the start of the process,

:06:00.:06:02.

but the NASUWT is concerned that their professional opinion

:06:03.:06:06.

We need to sit down with the Department and with the committee at

:06:07.:06:23.

the earliest point in time to thrash this out and lift the uncertainty

:06:24.:06:26.

that's been hanging over for far too long.

:06:27.:06:27.

A 16-year-old student from Jersey says she's heartbroken

:06:28.:06:29.

that she can't go to university because her parents can't afford it.

:06:30.:06:31.

The teenager spoke at a workshop held last night to gather evidence

:06:32.:06:34.

for a major review of the current student finance system.

:06:35.:06:39.

Today the Education Minister said a new bursary scheme could be

:06:40.:06:41.

implemented, as Jessica Banham reports.

:06:42.:06:47.

16-year-old Lara Peters had always planned on going to university.

:06:48.:06:50.

But, because of the cost of tuition fees, her parents can't afford it.

:06:51.:07:00.

It's heartbreaking, because I've worked so hard my entire life. My

:07:01.:07:06.

whole life, I have aimed to be a teacher and go to uni and get my

:07:07.:07:10.

degree so I can come back and be a teacher. I work so hard at school

:07:11.:07:14.

and get all the grades I want, but I can't go to uni.

:07:15.:07:19.

Choosing a child - it's like Sophie's choice all over again!

:07:20.:07:21.

Lara's family aren't the only ones struggling.

:07:22.:07:23.

Scores of people vented their frustrations last night

:07:24.:07:25.

in a workshop with the panel investigating student finance.

:07:26.:07:27.

For the next academic year, the threshold has risen to ?34,500.

:07:28.:07:32.

Any household that earns below that will be given money towards tuition

:07:33.:07:35.

States funding is then adjusted as household income increases,

:07:36.:07:42.

but if it's above ?100 and ?1,000, you'll have to cover all costs.

:07:43.:07:46.

Today the Education Minister also gave evidence to the panel.

:07:47.:07:49.

He revealed a local businessman has offered to help

:07:50.:07:51.

This is somebody that has worked with us closely in education and

:07:52.:08:05.

different areas, and has funded different things. We would welcome

:08:06.:08:08.

any philanthropist on the island they would want to help us with the

:08:09.:08:10.

dilemma that we face at the moment. The panel are hoping

:08:11.:08:11.

to publish their final report But for students like Lara

:08:12.:08:14.

it will be an anxious wait. A Jersey charity has become

:08:15.:08:19.

the latest victim of fly-tipping. The National Trust had to remove

:08:20.:08:22.

a large amount of rubbish, including furniture and a broken

:08:23.:08:27.

toilet, from their land this week - taking up valuable time

:08:28.:08:30.

and money they could be They look after our natural

:08:31.:08:33.

environment and historic sites, but this week the National Trust has

:08:34.:08:43.

been removing rubbish tha'ts been An unslightly display,

:08:44.:08:46.

which they had to get rid Somebody reversed onto the bin and

:08:47.:08:59.

surrounded it with rubbish. There was a toilet, some cupboards, an old

:09:00.:09:03.

chair. An unslightly display,

:09:04.:09:05.

which they had to get rid The major impact is really on our

:09:06.:09:15.

time. With a charitable organisation and we only have a small team. We

:09:16.:09:19.

completely reliant on our membership. It's not fair that our

:09:20.:09:22.

members should be financially burdened with dealing with this sort

:09:23.:09:24.

of problem. The National Trust say they've seen

:09:25.:09:24.

more cases of it recently. This disregard for the area has

:09:25.:09:28.

upset those that use it. Someone has had to make a big effort

:09:29.:09:38.

to get right up here. It's not on the main road. Someone has had to

:09:39.:09:42.

come up here. It's really quite disgusting to see this sort of

:09:43.:09:43.

thing. Fly-tipping is not good. But should that be down

:09:44.:09:45.

to the landowners - especially as there's a concern

:09:46.:09:48.

fly-tipping could get worse when the new commercial waste charge

:09:49.:09:50.

comes in next year. We will certainly request the

:09:51.:09:59.

resources to be able to provide support to those organisations, the

:10:00.:10:03.

parishes and certain charities, to be able to assist them with clearing

:10:04.:10:05.

that waste. The Trust hopes their land will be

:10:06.:10:05.

left in their natural state and only be enjoyed by those

:10:06.:10:08.

who appreciate it. And the only rubbish left

:10:09.:10:10.

is the rubbish that fits Severe winter weather has disrupted

:10:11.:10:13.

travel in the Channel Islands. Flights in and out of the islands

:10:14.:10:22.

have been cancelled because of conditions across the UK,

:10:23.:10:25.

and Condor's fast ferry isn't To tell us how the weather may

:10:26.:10:28.

affect our travel plans this weekend, David Braine

:10:29.:10:33.

has our forecast. Hello, good evening. Still a very

:10:34.:10:47.

blustery wind, I think that's the main feature of the weather at the

:10:48.:10:51.

moment. Those winds continue to be strong overnight tonight. They're

:10:52.:10:54.

slowly dropping but tomorrow we have another windy day. It still feels

:10:55.:10:58.

quite cold because of the wind and are still a risk of showers around,

:10:59.:11:02.

too, and showers still wintry across the eastern side of Britain. Again,

:11:03.:11:07.

check your flight details if it is affecting any of the airlines flying

:11:08.:11:11.

into eastern England. One weather fronts drifting down from the North

:11:12.:11:13.

doesn't really get to us tomorrow. It will introduce more cloud on

:11:14.:11:18.

Saturday. Sunday for all of us is generally a cloudy day. Where on the

:11:19.:11:23.

edge of high pressure. By rock bands of high pressure affecting us on

:11:24.:11:26.

Sunday that could produce rain. -- there are a few bands of high

:11:27.:11:31.

pressure. Tonight, a cold one ahead of us and a night where we will see

:11:32.:11:34.

some frost and the risk of ice as well. There are still showers dotted

:11:35.:11:39.

around. It's a brisk and cold Northwest wind. That sticks with us,

:11:40.:11:43.

easing in the second half of the night. But it won't stop the

:11:44.:11:47.

temperatures dropping, possibly as low as between 2-4 is obvious.

:11:48.:11:52.

Certainly for the larger islands. There will be the risk of ice

:11:53.:11:56.

because we will see showers dotted around. Where they do occur, they're

:11:57.:11:59.

lighter than we've seen recently. Some spas of sunshine in between

:12:00.:12:03.

before more general cloud comes in from the North overnight into

:12:04.:12:10.

Sunday. Eight Celsius is be high for tomorrow. But with a keen Northwest

:12:11.:12:15.

wind. Here are your times of high water. Here are the ways for our

:12:16.:12:33.

surface. -- our surfers. A lot of cloud around on Sunday and Monday

:12:34.:12:40.

next week. At least temperatures of 9-10 Celsius. It is cooled down a

:12:41.:12:43.

bit on Tuesday into Wednesday. Have a nice weekend.

:12:44.:12:48.

Athlete Cameron Chalmers has topped off a successful year by accepting

:12:49.:12:54.

the outstanding performance award from the Guernsey Sports Commission.

:12:55.:12:56.

A packed hall at Beau Sejour gathered to celebrate

:12:57.:12:58.

the island's achievements, but it was Chalmers who took top

:12:59.:13:01.

spot after a year which saw him become the fastest under-20 athlete

:13:02.:13:04.

12 trophies were given in total with the team award is going to go the

:13:05.:13:15.

men's hockey and the British Isles Bowls team. Congratulations to all

:13:16.:13:20.

that took part. I'll be back at 8pm then again at 10:30. See you then.

:13:21.:13:24.

of Devon. You can see much more that scheme on the Sunday Politics this

:13:25.:13:28.

coming Sunday at 11 o'clock on BBC One.

:13:29.:13:35.

A Devon firm which makes yurts is expanding thanks to an EU grant.

:13:36.:13:38.

The firm, in Staverton near Totnes, is taking on three more staff

:13:39.:13:41.

A further ?1 million of European money is is up for grabs

:13:42.:13:45.

by rural businesses in South Devon before the scheme ends.

:13:46.:13:48.

Yurts have become very trendy thanks to pop festivals like Glastonbury.

:13:49.:14:02.

This company which makes yurts has recently received ?15,000 EU grant

:14:03.:14:08.

to help it expand. It has enabled me to grow the business. As a result of

:14:09.:14:13.

getting the grant I'd been able to employ two more people and extend

:14:14.:14:16.

the product line which means that our offering is much better than it

:14:17.:14:24.

was. It is great news. The yurts are handmade in this workshop in the

:14:25.:14:27.

Devon countryside. The cash came from the South Devon coastal local

:14:28.:14:30.

action group which hands out European funds to create jobs. This

:14:31.:14:37.

is a prime example of a small rural business with four people employed

:14:38.:14:40.

at the moment and we're going to employ another three. The future is

:14:41.:14:46.

uncertain. We are looking at other schemes, UK-based schemes. If we can

:14:47.:14:52.

get the same people involved and carry it forward, that is what we

:14:53.:14:55.

aim to do. Brexit means the scheme will end. The good news is there is

:14:56.:15:00.

?1 million left in the pot which could be handed out to rural

:15:01.:15:03.

businesses in South Devon over the next few years. To the untrained eye

:15:04.:15:09.

it might seem like just some canvas over some polls, but it takes

:15:10.:15:12.

skilled craftspeople whose futures have been secured by the grant. I am

:15:13.:15:26.

born and bred in topless. I help -- Totnes. It is very close to fine

:15:27.:15:30.

furniture making, using the skills that I have. At the best of times

:15:31.:15:36.

I'm not an enthusiastic camper but even I think that I could get into

:15:37.:15:41.

this glamping lark! It's time for the sport now and

:15:42.:15:49.

Plymouth's big game with Liverpool is getting ever closer.

:15:50.:15:52.

Natalie's here to tell us more. We're not going to talk about it

:15:53.:15:54.

tonight because with replay tickets rapidly selling out, Plymouth Argyle

:15:55.:15:57.

will have to put the thrill of the FA Cup behind them and get

:15:58.:16:00.

back to business this weekend when they host

:16:01.:16:03.

Stevenage in League 2. The Pilgrims are still

:16:04.:16:05.

second in the division. Doncaster have opened up a

:16:06.:16:07.

four-point gap at the top Derek Adams reckons that rather

:16:08.:16:09.

than being distracted by the Liverpool games, his players

:16:10.:16:13.

have learned from being We have shown that again, go back

:16:14.:16:28.

into the game against Stevenage, we take the experience of being able to

:16:29.:16:34.

close teams down, not allowing them any space but then on the opposite

:16:35.:16:37.

side, we have to go and get on the ball and pass and move it and create

:16:38.:16:40.

chances again, this weekend. Elsewhere our other league 2 sides

:16:41.:16:41.

are on their travels. Exeter are at Grimsby,

:16:42.:16:44.

and Yeovil at Wycombe. In the National League,

:16:45.:16:46.

Torquay are at home to Woking. The Exeter Chiefs will try to keep

:16:47.:16:48.

their faint hopes of staying in Europe alive when they take

:16:49.:16:51.

on Ulster this weekend. They're playing on Sunday, so let's

:16:52.:16:53.

start there and work backwards. In the British and Irish Cup

:16:54.:16:56.

the Pirates are away to Ospreys and it's the Blues versus the Reds

:16:57.:16:59.

with Jersey visiting Cardiff. Meanwhile in League One, Albion

:17:00.:17:02.

are at home to Esher. Well, it started as a joke but now

:17:03.:17:07.

a teenager from Cornwall is preparing to take on an

:17:08.:17:10.

incredible endurance challenge. Next month, 13-year-old

:17:11.:17:13.

Siam Juntakeraket from Bodmin is going to cycle 3,000

:17:14.:17:14.

miles across Australia. He's in good hands - going with him

:17:15.:17:19.

is his coach Bob Brown, who's the first man to have both run

:17:20.:17:22.

and cycled the route. Nothing unusual about cycling to

:17:23.:17:36.

school and back, but Siam Juntakeraket has much bigger plans.

:17:37.:17:39.

A throwaway comment is triathlon coach who was planning on setting up

:17:40.:17:44.

a race across Australia set the wheels in motion for a gruelling

:17:45.:17:48.

record attempt. I rang up and asked them if I could have a go, as sort

:17:49.:17:53.

of a joke to start with, but then they said why not, let's give it a

:17:54.:18:00.

go. And here we are. They will concentrate purely on his record

:18:01.:18:04.

attempt. 44 days, the time to beat. We are aiming to do it in 30 but I

:18:05.:18:09.

have only hired a motorhome for 36 days because of the finances and

:18:10.:18:12.

things like that. It is an average of over 90 miles each day. No

:18:13.:18:17.

pressure, then. They will start for hours north of Sydney and head west

:18:18.:18:27.

with Siam's Perez following behind. It seems like quite a lot to do in a

:18:28.:18:31.

day, but I am prepared. He has the attributes necessary to complete

:18:32.:18:34.

this amazing challenge and I am really proud of him. Bob would know

:18:35.:18:38.

what it takes having run across Europe, the US, as well as crossing

:18:39.:18:43.

Australia on foot and on two wheels. If he had asked to run across

:18:44.:18:47.

Australia with me I would have said no because of his age. Some days I

:18:48.:18:52.

would get days when my feet swelled up and size six at the start of the

:18:53.:18:57.

race up to size 11. What will be the biggest problem next month? It will

:18:58.:19:02.

be the heat, quite bad, I think. But I reckon it will be fine. Me trying

:19:03.:19:07.

to keep up with him, which might be more difficult than it sounds. As

:19:08.:19:11.

well as raising money for two local charities, Siam wants to inspire

:19:12.:19:16.

others on a global scale. I would like to get other children around

:19:17.:19:20.

the world to realise that there is more to life than just their gadgets

:19:21.:19:23.

and their phones, and to get out and feel what it is like to be doing

:19:24.:19:27.

activities, rather than just sitting on a sofa and not really doing much.

:19:28.:19:38.

Good advice for us all! That's right, it is not just children. Good

:19:39.:19:41.

advice coming from a 13-year-old. Amazing, isn't it? Incredible trip.

:19:42.:19:44.

Now how about this for a trip down memory lane?

:19:45.:19:48.

Two sisters have just watched a film of themselves for the first time,

:19:49.:19:51.

more than 60 years after it was made.

:19:52.:19:53.

Back in the 1950s they took part in a production

:19:54.:19:55.

All these years later they have finally seen it

:19:56.:20:01.

and as Clare Woodling reports, it was an emotional moment.

:20:02.:20:09.

Lines from the greatest of our plays, and you out of the rock is

:20:10.:20:16.

one of the most lovely theatres in Europe, the Minack Theatre. 1955 and

:20:17.:20:20.

preparations are underway for Macbeth. Among the cast, 24-year-old

:20:21.:20:27.

Philip Kendall Carpenter. There is me. And there is Macbeth. I can't

:20:28.:20:32.

remember his name. That is Duncan. Duncan, I could be wrong. Her

:20:33.:20:37.

younger sister Vivian also has a role. 60 years on, and memories have

:20:38.:20:42.

come alive as they watch themselves in a newly discovered film for the

:20:43.:20:47.

first time. I think that Don McLeod, who was so good looking. He was

:20:48.:20:53.

putting blood on his sword, bless him. I went out with him a couple of

:20:54.:21:02.

times! Is that the boy? Yes. He was so sweet! They had Macbeth's head

:21:03.:21:08.

wrapped up in a cloth and they dropped it on the stage with a

:21:09.:21:11.

dreadful thud, and it was the biggest turn up that they could

:21:12.:21:20.

find! This huge turnout, every night, kerthump! Did you know that I

:21:21.:21:28.

went swimming? No, no. I bet mother didn't as well. Midnight? Yes,

:21:29.:21:33.

somebody followed me, evidently. I can't remember who. No. Shall I tell

:21:34.:21:39.

you? I was swimming and paddling away and suddenly I was aware that I

:21:40.:21:45.

was not alone? Do you know who followed me? Mac Beth! No, really!

:21:46.:21:55.

They just love cheering them memories. She went swimming with

:21:56.:22:01.

Macbeth. Scandal! -- they loved sharing their memories.

:22:02.:22:04.

Now for a budding young rock photographer the late 1970s

:22:05.:22:07.

was an exciting time to try to launch a career.

:22:08.:22:09.

Mike Searle was just seventeen when he took a cheap camera

:22:10.:22:12.

The snaps he took didn't make it into the music press

:22:13.:22:16.

But decades later his dream has come true and they've ended

:22:17.:22:20.

The Jam Orntoft the Pops in 1979. Mike Searle went to see them that

:22:21.:22:43.

month and took along his Russian-made camera. They were an

:22:44.:22:48.

amazing band, so part of what I wanted to do was capture him jumping

:22:49.:22:52.

with his guitar, Paul Weller, because that was his kind of

:22:53.:22:55.

signature move. I managed to get that. Lacking confidence, Mike

:22:56.:23:06.

didn't do anything with them. The pictures never saw the light of day

:23:07.:23:10.

again until a few years ago. Wanting to set up as a freelance

:23:11.:23:14.

photographer Mike dug them out and put them online and then he got a

:23:15.:23:18.

call. Someone from Universal Music called me and said we have got your

:23:19.:23:23.

photos and we would like to use them in a live album were releasing in

:23:24.:23:27.

the same year, are you interested? Yes, I am! Six months later the

:23:28.:23:32.

finished album was posted to him. I got the package and they opened it

:23:33.:23:37.

up and it was just this shiny, heavy, beautiful piece of art. I

:23:38.:23:41.

would have done it for love, to be honest! So, teenage dreams that

:23:42.:23:51.

finally came true, 38 years later. I think the message is for other

:23:52.:23:54.

people that age, if you do get the chance, follow your passion and

:23:55.:23:58.

really follow it through and good things can happen. Photos that stood

:23:59.:24:06.

the test of time. After the cold and I saw last night,

:24:07.:24:14.

there was a bit more ice to come tonight. Yes, and the risk of some

:24:15.:24:20.

frost for all of us. It's going to be a cold night with a widespread

:24:21.:24:24.

overnight frost and some showers dotted around. Not the snow that we

:24:25.:24:28.

saw last night. One of our Weather Watchers sent in a picture from

:24:29.:24:37.

Exford, and not so slowly, Shaftesbury in some evening

:24:38.:24:41.

sunshine. It is a quieter story this weekend. Less cold, the winds will

:24:42.:24:48.

drop, some showers dotted around the some of those continuing overnight

:24:49.:24:50.

tonight and through the day tomorrow. Mostly falling as rain by

:24:51.:24:56.

tomorrow afternoon. The risk of ice is a real one. Temperatures could be

:24:57.:25:01.

as low as -2, -3, and with a showers we have seen today that could lead

:25:02.:25:06.

to some ice on untreated roads and pavements. So first thing tomorrow

:25:07.:25:10.

could be rather dangerous on minor routes and on pavements. It is a

:25:11.:25:16.

slow transition to less cold air. Out to the west, we have this area

:25:17.:25:20.

of high pressure which continues to did in north-westerly winds. Round

:25:21.:25:24.

the top of that high pressure, several fronts are moving around and

:25:25.:25:29.

eventually they will introduce higher temperatures. It will take

:25:30.:25:32.

some time to get back to double figures but by the time we get to

:25:33.:25:36.

Sunday, with all the cloud rolling around the top of this area of high

:25:37.:25:39.

pressure, we will see some patchy rain and temperatures reaching back

:25:40.:25:44.

up to 10 degrees and probably frost free. Tonight, there's a widespread

:25:45.:25:50.

risk of ice. Still the risk of a few showers dotted around. This was

:25:51.:25:54.

earlier today on Exmoor, where Hamish Marshall went out to take

:25:55.:26:01.

some pictures. A beautiful scene on the high ground near Dulverton. Some

:26:02.:26:08.

of the showers overnight tonight could leave a light covering of

:26:09.:26:14.

sleet or snow. But for most of us clear skies tonight once we lose

:26:15.:26:18.

this first rash of showers, and later in the night, some more

:26:19.:26:23.

showers might turn up, not everywhere, they are pretty

:26:24.:26:26.

isolated, but were they do happen they could bring some sleep or hail.

:26:27.:26:30.

The lowest temperatures will be across eastern parts of Devon,

:26:31.:26:35.

Dorset and Somerset. We have a few showers around at some point through

:26:36.:26:39.

the day but also some sunshine. More general cloud arriving from the

:26:40.:26:44.

North later in the day, turning most of those showers to drizzle all like

:26:45.:26:48.

rain. Temperatures to recover so, by the time we get to the end of the

:26:49.:26:54.

day, between 8-10 Celsius. Still quite breezy with winds from the

:26:55.:26:59.

north-west. The forecast for the Isles of Scilly, blustery again,

:27:00.:27:02.

sunshine and showers before it clouds over. And the times of high

:27:03.:27:11.

water... Although the tides are high there are no expected problems for

:27:12.:27:18.

ports and harbours. And for our surfers... Milder conditions but

:27:19.:27:26.

also cloudier on both Sunday and Monday with temperatures back into

:27:27.:27:31.

double figures. Have a nice weekend. Looking very chilly. That's it.

:27:32.:27:38.

Our late bulletin is at 10:25pm. Have a good evening.

:27:39.:27:41.

Parents are facing an explosion in the number of children saying
