Good evening, I'm Charlie McArdle welcome to BBC Channel Islands.

:00:00.:00:00.

These are Tuesday's headlines: Counting the cost of fog.

:00:00.:00:10.

While passengers face delays, Aurigny say it's costing them up

:00:11.:00:13.

Snares found on public parkland that could injure pets.

:00:14.:00:29.

To the early 18th century and is quite frankly in this day and age a

:00:30.:00:33.

barbaric thing. Plus, the Ice Maiden's hoping

:00:34.:00:34.

to become the first all-female group For the poor visibility are along

:00:35.:00:51.

the island. Will we see poor weather later in the week? I will have the

:00:52.:00:53.

details later. Stranded passengers

:00:54.:01:09.

providing the boost. And for some the delay is just

:01:10.:01:13.

the beginning of a long journey. It was a similar story in Jersey

:01:14.:01:16.

where the fog's been been doing a well roaring trade

:01:17.:01:22.

over the last few days. Stranded passengers

:01:23.:01:26.

providing the boost. And for some the delay is just

:01:27.:01:27.

the beginning of a long journey. I'm going to London because I have

:01:28.:01:36.

got a transatlantic flight booked to go and see my parents because my

:01:37.:01:41.

father's not very well. It has all been delayed, so I have had to

:01:42.:01:46.

rebook my transatlantic flight was that costs money and I'm still not

:01:47.:01:48.

guaranteed to get off today. Are waiting. I had to book more holidays

:01:49.:01:57.

work, as well. Is this your first visit to Guernsey? Yes. What you

:01:58.:02:04.

think of the Apple's capability to deal with fog? Not very good at the

:02:05.:02:09.

moment. Just rang to get a flight is really difficult. It is not their

:02:10.:02:14.

fault, they are trying their best, but definitely I think the state

:02:15.:02:19.

should be focusing on this issue. It was a similar story in Jersey

:02:20.:02:20.

where the fog's been But it's not just the passengers

:02:21.:02:23.

feeling the pain. Airlines can't insure

:02:24.:02:26.

themselves against fog as it's For a company like Aurigny,

:02:27.:02:28.

the fog's been costing them up Aurigny says it's looking

:02:29.:02:33.

at thermal-imaging technology to try and improve its chances of landing

:02:34.:02:40.

and taking off in foggy conditions. In simple terms, it is a headset

:02:41.:02:50.

that the pilot wears. There is a pilot on the nose of the aircraft

:02:51.:02:56.

which looks through the frog and -- fog and improves our success rate by

:02:57.:02:59.

a factor of half. There are things happening.

:03:00.:03:01.

But another piece of equipment that could minimise fog disruption,

:03:02.:03:04.

The Civil Aviation Authority has told me today that a system called

:03:05.:03:09.

Egnos which uses satellites to cut through the fog should be up

:03:10.:03:12.

and running in Guernsey by the summer at the latest.

:03:13.:03:19.

Illegal, dangerous and a risk to dogs.

:03:20.:03:21.

The recent discovery of three snare traps in a popular walking area

:03:22.:03:25.

in Jersey has sparked warnings to dog owners.

:03:26.:03:27.

But it's the sophistication of these latest devices that has caused real

:03:28.:03:30.

safety concern as Emma Chambers reports.

:03:31.:03:34.

They are used to catch food and vermin.

:03:35.:03:38.

But today they are being described as archaic and inhumane

:03:39.:03:42.

after the discovery of three snares in this area of St Ouen.

:03:43.:03:48.

You can see the long grass is a haven for dogs to run in.

:03:49.:03:52.

The parish centennier showed me where they were found.

:03:53.:03:55.

He says they are illegal in this parkland, but its the way

:03:56.:03:58.

the traps were planted that's worried him the most.

:03:59.:04:03.

We found two, two of these which are more lethal

:04:04.:04:06.

than the original ones we found six months ago.

:04:07.:04:09.

The difference between the snares is that one is stubby wooden

:04:10.:04:12.

pushed into the sand, and it will come out very easily.

:04:13.:04:17.

This one is totally different - long, you can see how long it is -

:04:18.:04:24.

and what will happen is a rabbit or dog or whatever animal

:04:25.:04:28.

is will go along, he'll go in through there and that will pull

:04:29.:04:31.

We are surprised and very disappointed.

:04:32.:04:37.

This is a great dog walking area, these things are dangerous to dogs

:04:38.:04:42.

and we just didn't expect to ever see them again but they are here.

:04:43.:04:46.

The JSPCA is now calling for an outright ban of all snares,

:04:47.:04:52.

not just the self-tightening devices and those on protected land.

:04:53.:04:54.

There's many other methods to catch wild animals that can be caught

:04:55.:04:57.

for food such as rabbits and wood pigeons and then of course

:04:58.:05:00.

there is vermin as well which does have to be controlled -

:05:01.:05:03.

I recognise that but equally there are many other methods you can

:05:04.:05:06.

use rather than something that comes from the early 18th century

:05:07.:05:09.

and is quite honestly in the 21st century a barbaric method to do.

:05:10.:05:13.

The environment department say they are assessing the law.

:05:14.:05:15.

We do follow international best practise, self-locking snares

:05:16.:05:19.

are banned with the bird convection, sliding snares aren't and we do need

:05:20.:05:25.

discussion in the department to see what we are going to do about it.

:05:26.:05:29.

But until that happens, officials are relying on islanders

:05:30.:05:31.

Especially those that shouldn't be used on Jersey's protected reserves.

:05:32.:05:45.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport will this summer rule

:05:46.:05:48.

on whether Jersey's bid to join the football governing body Uefa

:05:49.:05:50.

should be considered by existing member nations.

:05:51.:05:53.

The Jersey FA wants the island to be given international status -

:05:54.:05:56.

it's currently run like a county, affiliated to the English FA.

:05:57.:05:59.

Last year, Uefa officials rejected the application,

:06:00.:06:03.

arguing the island isn't recognised as an independent state.

:06:04.:06:07.

But Jersey believe their bid should at least be put

:06:08.:06:11.

Same-sex marriages could take place in Guernsey as early as May.

:06:12.:06:17.

The law will be reviewed early next month, before being ratified

:06:18.:06:21.

If approved, it could come into effect on the 2nd of May,

:06:22.:06:26.

though couples would need a special licence which takes

:06:27.:06:29.

Jersey Police are donating unclaimed jewellery to the charity

:06:30.:06:37.

The collection of watches, chains, and rings have been in storage

:06:38.:06:40.

at the police station for over three years.

:06:41.:06:44.

Most of the time, the police can reunite owners with their lost

:06:45.:06:47.

or stolen property but that hasn't been the case with this jewellery.

:06:48.:06:51.

Jersey Hospice will sell it to raise money to provide care

:06:52.:06:54.

A woman from Guernsey is part of a team of soldiers hoping

:06:55.:06:59.

to become the first all-female group to cross Antarctica unaided.

:07:00.:07:05.

They are currently doing their final training in a remote part of Norway

:07:06.:07:08.

their 17,000-hundred kilometre journey at the Leverett Glacier.

:07:09.:07:21.

The first leg will see them reach the South Pole,

:07:22.:07:23.

where they will re-supply, before heading onwards

:07:24.:07:25.

The expedition of the Ice Maidens as they've called themselves,

:07:26.:07:28.

will test whether women soldiers can endure the same extreme

:07:29.:07:30.

Heading out across a frozen Norweigan lake, the Ice Maiden Team

:07:31.:07:40.

are at the start of their final training exercise.

:07:41.:07:42.

In September, these soldiers will begin their historic journey

:07:43.:07:45.

and hoping to be among them is Lance Corporal Rin

:07:46.:07:47.

With her day job as a dietician, Rin was the obvious choice to look

:07:48.:07:52.

group of women whose nutrition requirements are different from

them. -- from men. Very little is known

:08:10.:08:12.

about exactly what it will take to sustain a group of women

:08:13.:08:15.

through an expedition like this. So one of the goals is to collect

:08:16.:08:17.

medical data that will show how the female body copes

:08:18.:08:21.

with extreme environments. But there will also be more

:08:22.:08:22.

personal considerations, especially when they're on the march

crossing Antarctica. It is about encouraging women from across the

:09:10.:09:13.

military and women to go out and give things a go. You can achieve

:09:14.:09:18.

anything. We will inspire women to get out and be physically active. It

:09:24.:09:25.

There are seven Ice Maidens - two will be reserves as only five

:09:26.:09:28.

Where they hope to put their names in the history books alongside

:09:29.:09:32.

I wish them all the very best of luck.

:09:33.:09:39.

Some Jersey rugby news now, and prop Simon Kerrod

:09:40.:09:41.

will leave the Reds at the end of the season.

:09:42.:09:46.

The South African is joining the current Premiership

:09:47.:09:49.

Kerrod has been with the club since the start of last year.

:09:50.:09:58.

A day of fog. A window of opportunity opened up. It is

:09:59.:10:04.

beginning to seem like Groundhog Day. Same question, night after

:10:05.:10:10.

night. We still getting fog? Yes. Hold on in there for one more day.

:10:11.:10:14.

It is beginning to feel like Groundhog Day for me. A lot of fog

:10:15.:10:19.

talk. Tomorrow will be cloudy, but the breeze will pick up. That will

:10:20.:10:24.

lift the cloud and a few places, but I doubt we will see much sunshine.

:10:25.:10:29.

Rowell westerly breeze, that will pick up the cloud bases. I think

:10:30.:10:35.

towards the tail end of the day, we will see a bit of light rain.

:10:36.:10:40.

Thursday, it is all change. Here is storm Doris. The main impact of this

:10:41.:10:44.

storm will be across northern parts of the United Kingdom. For the

:10:45.:10:48.

island, we will see heavy rain in the middle of the day. Gusts into

:10:49.:10:54.

the little of the afternoon. 40 or 50 mph gusts. At the moment, poor

:10:55.:10:59.

visibility. The breeze picks up overnight. That should shift some of

:11:00.:11:06.

the low cloud and places. These are the temperatures you should expect

:11:07.:11:10.

by day. Around eight or 9 degrees. A similar start the day tomorrow.

:11:11.:11:14.

Grey, low cloud, Miss. Without breeze, it will tend to pick up in

:11:15.:11:18.

places, so perhaps not as dense as today. Into the afternoon, we will

:11:19.:11:22.

start to see that weather fronts making its presence known. For

:11:23.:11:26.

Guernsey, that rainbow push into the tail end of the day. Temperatures up

:11:27.:11:32.

to ten or 11 degrees. That fact that rain will. Not a good deal of surf,

:11:33.:11:40.

Maine in the west with the wind is picking up. The waves will pick up,

:11:41.:11:46.

too. On the coastlines, poor visibility. Some drizzle, fog

:11:47.:11:51.

patches, as those west, south-westerly patches pick up. Some

:11:52.:11:54.

back have bought shifting places. Tomorrow, some of the last of the

:11:55.:11:57.

mild days are a couple of days. Starting off gay, is -- grey but we

:11:58.:12:06.

could see gale forced gusts. It does quieten down on Friday. Light winds

:12:07.:12:10.

but we should see more in the way of sunshine. Thank you. We say hello to

:12:11.:12:14.

Friday fog -- fog. Before we go, a reminder of our top story

:12:15.:12:25.

in the Channel Islands tonight. That's the cost of fog to one

:12:26.:12:28.

Channel Island airline. Aurigny has confirmed today that

:12:29.:12:31.

paying for hotels and food for stranded passengers

:12:32.:12:34.

as well as a loss of revenue If you have missed anything you can

:12:35.:12:36.

watch today's bulletins on the iplayer and your local radio

:12:37.:12:41.

stations will have hourly We're back at eight with an update

:12:42.:12:43.

and then again at 10:25. Stay with us for the animated

:12:44.:12:51.

version of Archie the Fire dog. And later news of a

:12:52.:12:55.

change in the weather. Well, Storm Doris has been named

:12:56.:12:57.

but what impact will it have on the south-west when it

:12:58.:13:00.

hit us on Thursday? I'll have all the details

:13:01.:13:03.

later in the programme. A woman from Devon has

:13:04.:13:12.

described a simple wooden Sally Morgan has multiple sclerosis

:13:13.:13:15.

and hasn't been able to stand She is now able to be upright

:13:16.:13:21.

for around an hour a day. The frame isn't universally

:13:22.:13:26.

available on the NHS, but now academics at Plymouth University

:13:27.:13:29.

are leading a trial to assess Our health correspondent

:13:30.:13:32.

Jenny Walrond has more. It's a simple but sturdy frame

:13:33.:13:42.

and for Sally Morgan it She has multiple sclerosis

:13:43.:13:44.

and hasn't been able to stand up for Sally has been taking

:13:45.:13:48.

part in a study run by Plymouth University, looking

:13:49.:13:53.

at whether the standing frame is effective in helping people

:13:54.:13:57.

improve their strength. Oh, it's revolutionised my life,

:13:58.:14:02.

really, I would say. Obviously, when you are sedentary,

:14:03.:14:05.

when you are sat down most of the time, all

:14:06.:14:07.

your muscles contract. Whereas now the muscles

:14:08.:14:09.

behind my knees and my quads in my legs, all my those types of things

:14:10.:14:13.

have suddenly become more stretched and my upper body strength has

:14:14.:14:18.

improved and it is freeing up The frames have been made

:14:19.:14:21.

by a family firm for some time. They cost around ?500

:14:22.:14:25.

but, in order to get them commissioned on the NHS,

:14:26.:14:29.

academics must prove that they are effective in improving things

:14:30.:14:32.

such as core strength We are hoping to find out,

:14:33.:14:36.

firstly, to see whether this intervention is effective,

:14:37.:14:40.

because without that kind of evidence then we are unable to often

:14:41.:14:42.

provide this kind of equipment because we need evidence to

:14:43.:14:47.

demonstrate to commissioners of care who purchase these kind of aides

:14:48.:14:51.

and equipment to see whether it is relevant for people and whether it

:14:52.:14:56.

does make a difference to their lives and whether it

:14:57.:14:59.

is cost-effective. For Sally and her husband Matt

:15:00.:15:01.

the change has been obvious. Her legs are less swollen,

:15:02.:15:04.

she is now able to stand for about an hour, and finds it easier

:15:05.:15:08.

to transition from her Well, it's been amazing for Sally -

:15:09.:15:11.

it really has transformed her life. Dealing with MS on a day-to-day

:15:12.:15:18.

basis was really tough for both of us, but it has

:15:19.:15:20.

made her physically more positive, she feels she is able to do

:15:21.:15:25.

more, much more. The trial is ongoing

:15:26.:15:29.

and still needs more volunteers. If the results show that others

:15:30.:15:33.

benefit as Sally has, this could become

:15:34.:15:36.

available on the NHS. There are details about that study

:15:37.:15:43.

on our BBC Spotlight facebook page. You don't have to be a member

:15:44.:15:47.

of facebook to find them. Now a quick round up of some

:15:48.:15:51.

of the other stories tonight An official site built to house

:15:52.:15:55.

travellers at a Devon beauty Teignbridge Council wants

:15:56.:15:57.

to build three more units at the Haldon Ridge

:15:58.:16:01.

site near Exeter. A decision on the additional pitches

:16:02.:16:03.

is expected in April. Plans to pedestrianise parts

:16:04.:16:10.

of Taunton town centre have Taunton Deane Borough Council wants

:16:11.:16:12.

to ban traffic from East Street, Hammet Street and St James Street

:16:13.:16:17.

for an 18-month trial period. The plans are on display

:16:18.:16:21.

at Taunton Library. People are being asked

:16:22.:16:25.

for their views on scrapping free deckchairs for the over 60s

:16:26.:16:27.

on Weymouth Esplanade. Weymouth and Portland Borough

:16:28.:16:31.

Council says scrapping the free pass for those who live in the borough

:16:32.:16:34.

would save ?5,000 a year. The deckchairs have been free

:16:35.:16:38.

of charge for the past 30 years. The Somerset trained horse

:16:39.:16:44.

Thistlecrack that was favourite to win this year's Cheltenham Gold Cup

:16:45.:16:46.

will miss out due to injury. Its not all doom and gloom

:16:47.:16:49.

at Colin Tizzrd's yard though as he does still have the second

:16:50.:16:52.

and third favourites. It's a familiar part of student

:16:53.:16:59.

life, but now communal living is becoming increasingly popular

:17:00.:17:02.

among older people. It's known as co-housing

:17:03.:17:07.

and involves residents living in smaller properties and sharing

:17:08.:17:09.

a kitchen, dining area The idea may help to ease the

:17:10.:17:21.

growing pressure on housing and could be rolled out across the

:17:22.:17:25.

south-west. A number of sites have already been earmarked. Our reporter

:17:26.:17:28.

has been to one scheme in Dorset to see how it works.

:17:29.:17:31.

They live side-by-side but they are not students.

:17:32.:17:33.

They get on well but some have only just met.

:17:34.:17:35.

They eat together but this is not a house

:17:36.:17:37.

There are 14 separate homes here at the

:17:38.:17:43.

But when it comes to gardening and cooking

:17:44.:17:49.

They have one central kitchen and dining

:17:50.:17:53.

For them it is a greener way of living, a

:17:54.:18:03.

And they are therefore each other if they need support.

:18:04.:18:06.

Actually, what this was very important for me was

:18:07.:18:09.

that my son stopped worrying about me,

:18:10.:18:10.

because he knew there were lots

:18:11.:18:12.

of people around who would look out for me.

:18:13.:18:14.

It's sending a message, really, to other people that these things

:18:15.:18:17.

can be done and sustainability is not

:18:18.:18:20.

just about the green aspects and the environment, it's about people

:18:21.:18:24.

living together within a sustainable community.

:18:25.:18:28.

Co-housing is a microcosm of humanity.

:18:29.:18:30.

You have exactly the same issues that any group of people

:18:31.:18:35.

have, it's just that it's an intentional community,

:18:36.:18:37.

so we intend to make the effort to get on with

:18:38.:18:40.

each other and do things together and enjoy life together.

:18:41.:18:44.

According to the most recent figures, there

:18:45.:18:45.

are 7 million single person houses have sold in the UK.

:18:46.:18:48.

And we although about the shortage in housing

:18:49.:18:51.

Well, here in Bridport, 40 miles away from the Threshold Centre, one

:18:52.:18:54.

local group are hoping another co-housing scheme can help to

:18:55.:18:57.

The co-housing movement started in Denmark in the 1960s.

:18:58.:19:03.

It is now growing in popularity with other schemes near

:19:04.:19:07.

In Bridport, they are now confident work will begin here in the spring.

:19:08.:19:12.

We are looking at the sort of lives we want to live in the future and

:19:13.:19:16.

the constraints we may face on our lives in the future, and I think

:19:17.:19:19.

that co-housing will answer many of them

:19:20.:19:22.

because it is flexible and

:19:23.:19:25.

people can have as little or as much company as they need.

:19:26.:19:29.

I suppose a real hermit would need somewhere

:19:30.:19:31.

else, you know, they wouldn't like it.

:19:32.:19:32.

But for most people there are benefits.

:19:33.:19:37.

Particularly single parents, there is a distinctive benefit.

:19:38.:19:40.

The town is very supportive of us, the sort of people that live

:19:41.:19:43.

here, a lot of people are interested in what we are doing and interested

:19:44.:19:46.

The first residents will be moving in to the Bridport co-housing scheme

:19:47.:19:53.

For now, at the Threshold Centre, there are chores to be done.

:19:54.:20:03.

Now they're man's best friend and we must admit

:20:04.:20:06.

We were more than a little pleased to see these

:20:07.:20:09.

dogs with jobs arrive at our studios this morning.

:20:10.:20:12.

Devon and Cornwall Police's Cosmic and Tara, accompanied

:20:13.:20:15.

by their handlers and volunteer puppy walker were here

:20:16.:20:17.

for an interview with Radio Devon's David Fitzgerald.

:20:18.:20:24.

But they're not the only dogs with an important

:20:25.:20:26.

You may remember Archie from the Cornwall Fire

:20:27.:20:29.

and Rescue Service, who appeared on Spotlight last year.

:20:30.:20:32.

Well, now he has a starring role in his very own animation.

:20:33.:20:35.

Reporting for duty and ready for the next shout, Archie the fire

:20:36.:20:48.

dog and his canine colleague Woody have become rather animated.

:20:49.:20:50.

And my name is Woody and I'm learning to become a

:20:51.:20:56.

He is not quite three years old and he's part

:20:57.:21:05.

Archie's role is to assist us in determining potentially the

:21:06.:21:22.

causes of fires and looking for ignitable liquids or hydrocarbons

:21:23.:21:25.

stranger to the spotlight. or develop that fire Archie is no

:21:26.:21:32.

He has already been on our red sofa and is

:21:33.:21:34.

He's also got an important job to do.

:21:35.:21:37.

Get ready, Archie - the alarm is ringing!

:21:38.:21:39.

Archie and Woody's fire investigation adventure shows

:21:40.:21:41.

everything from the paw protectors going on to Archie arriving at the

:21:42.:21:44.

We wait for the firefighters to put out the fire.

:21:45.:21:51.

Now we sniff the whole room, searching for any of the scents we

:21:52.:21:54.

So what we are going to do is test Archie and see if he can

:21:55.:21:59.

Now, Mark, what have you put on this?

:22:00.:22:02.

It's methylated spirits that is on that

:22:03.:22:03.

stick, which is one of the hydrocarbons that

:22:04.:22:06.

Now I'm going to hide it under this door frame.

:22:07.:22:09.

How long do you think it will take him to find it?

:22:10.:22:12.

Well, with a bit of direction from myself, he is purely

:22:13.:22:14.

looking on scent, 20 to 30 seconds, maximum.

:22:15.:22:16.

Archie's skill or mose in helping to find the

:22:17.:22:21.

possible causes of fires has given the animators plenty to work with.

:22:22.:22:24.

Since the release of the film in the early part of last week,

:22:25.:22:30.

we've had several thousand people viewing it already, and we've had

:22:31.:22:33.

some really positive feedback from all over

:22:34.:22:36.

the country and all over the world, actually.

:22:37.:22:38.

And they think it's a great adventure.

:22:39.:22:40.

But there are some serious safety messages in the film.

:22:41.:22:44.

Always remember, if a fire does start - get out,

:22:45.:22:48.

And what about after a hard day's work?

:22:49.:22:55.

And we'd like to hear from you if you have a dog with a job.

:22:56.:23:15.

Whether it's a hearing dog, service dog, guide dog or herding dog,

:23:16.:23:20.

if you rely on your dog day-to-day, why not tell us your story.

:23:21.:23:23.

There are the usual ways to get in touch.

:23:24.:23:36.

Let's see what the weather is doing across the south-west.

:23:37.:23:43.

As long as they're an know whether dogs! We have had a lot of fog

:23:44.:23:52.

across the south-west. We've had low cloud, mist, generally fairly murky

:23:53.:23:56.

conditions, but I think tomorrow we should see the breeze pick-up and

:23:57.:24:00.

that could lift the cloud in places. A largely great, damp day. You can

:24:01.:24:06.

see we have a fair amount of cloud across much of the UK. We haven't

:24:07.:24:10.

had much in a way of sunshine. It is all tied in with this weather front.

:24:11.:24:15.

We are on the southern side of it so we have fairly warm, moist air but

:24:16.:24:22.

it leaves us with fog. Tomorrow the breeze or pick-up, it could shift

:24:23.:24:24.

the cloud in places but we will see the cloud in places but we will see

:24:25.:24:26.

a largely overcast today. On a largely overcast today. On

:24:27.:24:32.

Thursday we have Storm Doris, the greatest impact is further north but

:24:33.:24:38.

we will see gusts of 40 to 50 mph. Acquired today on Friday, light

:24:39.:24:41.

winds and a little more in the way of sunshine. There's been a lot of

:24:42.:24:45.

cloud today. You can see we've had light rain and drizzle two. Earlier

:24:46.:24:53.

today one of our went to the North coast of Cornwall. The breeze is

:24:54.:24:57.

dropping receives an little but you can see the extent of the cloud,

:24:58.:25:02.

it's solid, it's low. Poor visibility, low cloud. Many of us

:25:03.:25:07.

have not seen the sun today. That will continue through tonight. Out

:25:08.:25:11.

there tonight there is a lot of cloud, tonight there will be light

:25:12.:25:16.

rain and drizzle. The breeze picks up but they're still could BC and

:25:17.:25:21.

hill fog. Temperatures by night what you would expect by day, falling to

:25:22.:25:25.

around eight or 9 degrees. That means tomorrow has a similar start.

:25:26.:25:30.

Low cloud, rain. Rain is light and patchy but could turn heavier over

:25:31.:25:36.

them higher ground. The breeze could pick up lifting the cloud but I

:25:37.:25:39.

think you will be fairly lucky if you see the sun. Temperatures still

:25:40.:25:43.

doing very well for the time of year, most places making it into

:25:44.:25:46.

double figures. One or two spots could hit 11 or 12 degrees. For the

:25:47.:25:51.

Isles of Scilly there will be a lot of cloud, mainly dry, but extensive

:25:52.:25:57.

mist and fog, and the wind is picking up in the afternoon and

:25:58.:25:59.

overnight. Here are the times of high water. Roughly three in the

:26:00.:26:06.

morning and afternoon. In terms of service, we have slightly bigger

:26:07.:26:09.

waves towards the north coast, down towards the south we have three to

:26:10.:26:17.

five foot and messy. A breezy day tomorrow, rains from West to

:26:18.:26:22.

south-west. There will be rain and drizzle on and off through the

:26:23.:26:28.

course of the day, visibility moderate or good occasionally poor.

:26:29.:26:32.

Tomorrow is a mild day, very little difference between today and

:26:33.:26:35.

tomorrow. If anything we will see a little more breeze. Thursday we will

:26:36.:26:39.

see a spell of rain early on clearing by lunchtime and while many

:26:40.:26:44.

of us will see sunshine, from lunchtime onwards we will get the

:26:45.:26:48.

in the warning area but we could see in the warning area but we could see

:26:49.:26:54.

some strong winds. In Devon and Cornwall we could see gusts of 40 to

:26:55.:27:01.

50 mph. A slightly cooler at night Thursday into Friday. And we should

:27:02.:27:08.

then see more in a way of sunshine on Friday but it will be cooler. It

:27:09.:27:14.

turns milder through the weekend. Wind is picking up on Saturday, a

:27:15.:27:18.

lot of cloud with some fairly heavy downpours.

:27:19.:27:21.

A reminder of the top story. Major incident has been declared after a

:27:22.:27:28.

fire broke out in the leisure centre in central Exeter. One person

:27:29.:27:32.

received minor burns. We will have the latest on tonight's late news.

:27:33.:27:39.

That is all for tonight from us. Good night.
