Good evening. I'm Charlie McArdle.

:00:00.:00:00.

Welcome to BBC Channel Islands. These are Thursday's headlines:

:00:00.:00:07.

Day two of Guernsey's Population Law debate and it's good news

:00:08.:00:10.

for existing workers and the residents

:00:11.:00:12.

Brexit begins to bite - warning that islanders will be

:00:13.:00:16.

Saving parents thousands - Guernsey extends its trial offering

:00:17.:00:26.

What is happening is that our suppliers, based in Europe or the

:00:27.:00:31.

US, are unfortunately putting up prices.

:00:32.:00:33.

Saving parents thousands - Guernsey extends its trial offering

:00:34.:00:35.

And we have had a warm day today across the Channel Islands. The

:00:36.:00:43.

average for this time of year should be 11 degrees. 19 today, fresh

:00:44.:00:47.

tomorrow. More details later. Guernsey will introduce

:00:48.:00:53.

a controversial new population control regime next week

:00:54.:00:55.

after the government approved New laws governing who can live

:00:56.:00:58.

and work in Guernsey are aiming to help manage the island's changing

:00:59.:01:05.

population, as people are living longer and the working age

:01:06.:01:08.

population continues to fall. The island also needs to do more

:01:09.:01:14.

to be human rights compliant. It's a very complex

:01:15.:01:20.

law but essentially: People will need

:01:21.:01:22.

to have a certificate or a permit Currently, anyone from outside

:01:23.:01:24.

Guernsey wanting to live and work must obtain a housing licence,

:01:25.:01:30.

or make use of higher-priced The new law introduces

:01:31.:01:32.

new work permits. It involves short, medium

:01:33.:01:37.

and long-term work permits for one year, five years

:01:38.:01:41.

and eight years respectively. This would allow anyone who has

:01:42.:01:44.

lived continuously in local market property for eight years to live

:01:45.:01:48.

in Guernsey indefinitely. Well, Mike Wilkins is

:01:49.:01:53.

in our Guernsey newsroom. Mike, the short term permit has

:01:54.:01:56.

come under particular criticism? Yes, Charlie. Many seasonal workers

:01:57.:02:11.

spent nine months on the island in three months away, and the new law

:02:12.:02:15.

will mean they will be able to work in Guernsey for a maximum of five

:02:16.:02:19.

years. Many in the business community say will cause staff to

:02:20.:02:24.

leave the island. Today, deputies voted to allow existing guest

:02:25.:02:27.

workers who have already clocked up five seasons to continue with the

:02:28.:02:31.

nine-month, three-month arrangement indefinitely. The man pushing for

:02:32.:02:34.

the change says it is a short-term solution. It is a boy putting his

:02:35.:02:42.

finger in the dyke, really. That is all it is. It is protecting the

:02:43.:02:46.

people who are here with grandfather rights, not solving the problem.

:02:47.:02:49.

And there was good news for the younger generation of Alderney and

:02:50.:02:56.

Sark? Yes, restrictions are to be relaxed and people from those

:02:57.:02:59.

islands who want to come and live and work in Guernsey.

:03:00.:03:02.

But there are conditions attached, and one of Alderney's

:03:03.:03:05.

representatives told me he wants to see more flexibility.

:03:06.:03:09.

We want the Committee For Home Affairs to look at the proposition

:03:10.:03:13.

again and to bring it back with less restriction. That is the message and

:03:14.:03:18.

what we really need in Alderney to prevent the loss from the catchment

:03:19.:03:22.

area of Guernsey of young talent. That does tend to leave Alderney and

:03:23.:03:26.

had for the mainland, because it is so much easier.

:03:27.:03:32.

The new population law will affect the way people can live and work

:03:33.:03:35.

here, and a politician responsible told me it will be good for the

:03:36.:03:37.

island. It is a very complex law, a

:03:38.:03:40.

Fairlawn, but it is much better and Fairlawn, but it is much better and

:03:41.:03:43.

has much more flexibility than our current housing control law, which

:03:44.:03:48.

is outdated and not fit for purpose. We have spoken with businesses and

:03:49.:03:52.

our community, and I think it is a good law.

:03:53.:03:55.

Tomorrow, the state will return for a debate on the open market, but

:03:56.:04:00.

today, they voted 26-13 in favour of the new population law. From Monday,

:04:01.:04:05.

this legislation will affect many people in very different ways.

:04:06.:04:06.

One of Jersey's biggest and oldest retailers is having to increase

:04:07.:04:09.

Article 50 was triggered yesterday starting the UK's separation

:04:10.:04:13.

Although it will take two years of negotiations,

:04:14.:04:18.

it seems the weakened pound is already costing islanders more,

:04:19.:04:21.

Online shopping is no longer retailers' biggest threat.

:04:22.:04:28.

The impact political decisions across the water have had

:04:29.:04:31.

on the pound are now affecting the foundations of

:04:32.:04:34.

Certainly in our beauty department our suppliers have put up

:04:35.:04:43.

prices pretty quickly, in our accessories area

:04:44.:04:45.

I think our suppliers are waiting to see what happens but they have

:04:46.:04:50.

told us that they are putting up their prices in the autumn -

:04:51.:04:53.

and we have the same situation on the clothing side

:04:54.:04:55.

And it's the customers who are paying for the rise in cost prices.

:04:56.:05:01.

Not really. No, I don't. You ask, I do. It is cost on there.

:05:02.:05:16.

Unfortunately, it goes on to the end consumer.

:05:17.:05:18.

No, but we are all was going to get done, and we? Yes. Hopefully, they

:05:19.:05:23.

will keep as much as possible away from the public, but at the same

:05:24.:05:26.

time, I'm sure costs will go up greatly.

:05:27.:05:26.

Jersey's Chief Minister agrees it's one of the challenges facing

:05:27.:05:29.

the island as Brexit negotiations begin.

:05:30.:05:30.

I've got no doubt that it will be uncertain and there will be

:05:31.:05:39.

turbulence in the political world throughout this

:05:40.:05:45.

turbulence in the political world throughout this negotiation,

:05:46.:05:47.

but we in Jersey are in a very strong position,

:05:48.:05:49.

We've got to continue to fight our corner,

:05:50.:05:54.

make our case heard and look for opportunities I have no doubt

:05:55.:05:57.

will arise throughout these number of years.

:05:58.:05:59.

While the Government flies the flag to secure the island's position

:06:00.:06:01.

over the next few years, shoppers will have to pay the price

:06:02.:06:04.

for the UK's decision to leave the EU.

:06:05.:06:09.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested in connection

:06:10.:06:11.

with a burglary which occurred while the homeowners slept upstairs.

:06:12.:06:17.

A laptop, two guitars, cameras and car keys were taken

:06:18.:06:19.

The police later found the homeowners' stolen car

:06:20.:06:26.

It's been confirmed that three- and four-year-olds in Guernsey

:06:27.:06:32.

will continue to get 15 hours' free-preschool each week.

:06:33.:06:35.

A trial which was due to end in July has been extended for another year.

:06:36.:06:39.

But will fewer providers be willing to offer it?

:06:40.:06:41.

It's a great start, it gets them to socialise.

:06:42.:07:01.

Great learning adventures, play activities, leaning numbers

:07:02.:07:04.

Great learning adventures, play activities, learning numbers

:07:05.:07:09.

and it gives the children a great start in their education.

:07:10.:07:12.

And it's a start that is now more accessible to families.

:07:13.:07:15.

Education's removed the financial barrier, offering 15 free hours

:07:16.:07:17.

of pre-school the year before children start school.

:07:18.:07:19.

Although funded by a cut in family allowance,

:07:20.:07:21.

It's a good idea, and benefits lots of children who'd

:07:22.:07:28.

I think the more they can learn, the more they develop, and the more they

:07:29.:07:40.

can appreciate society and how we all interact together, form a

:07:41.:07:44.

community, so I think it is a fantastic idea. I think it is great

:07:45.:07:46.

for families. Whether it carries on or not

:07:47.:07:47.

is a different story. There's still a question mark over

:07:48.:07:50.

what happens in a year's time. One issue is that pre-schools

:07:51.:07:54.

get a set rate of ?5.90 an hour from the States,

:07:55.:07:57.

but some want to be able to charge Education says it needs

:07:58.:08:00.

longer to look at it. It's a concern that some

:08:01.:08:04.

providers may not be able to provide it at this price,

:08:05.:08:06.

and some may have to pull out, but that is part of the process

:08:07.:08:12.

of assessing what can be done So unlike this pre-school,

:08:13.:08:16.

some may choose not to opt in. But Education says it wants

:08:17.:08:22.

to build up more evidence A 7.5% rise in the price

:08:23.:08:24.

of wholesale milk is to be passed on to customers

:08:25.:08:35.

by many of Guernsey's retailers. A litre of milk currently costs

:08:36.:08:38.

?1.18, but shops including Alliance, Marks and Spencer,

:08:39.:08:41.

Sandpiper and the Co-op are planning a price hike,

:08:42.:08:42.

blaming already low margins. Guernsey Dairy think customers

:08:43.:08:44.

will see the wholesale We would like to think that we have

:08:45.:09:02.

a loyal customer base and they understand the full economics of the

:09:03.:09:06.

actual milk industry on the island. You are not only paying for a later

:09:07.:09:11.

of milk per sale, you are sort of reinvesting money back into the

:09:12.:09:14.

countryside, back into the breed, back into the structure of island,

:09:15.:09:18.

and supporting one of the oldest industries remaining.

:09:19.:09:19.

A collection of rare stamps and coins worth over ?1 million have

:09:20.:09:22.

The luxury asset event is giving islanders a chance to see

:09:23.:09:26.

for themselves the value of these rare prestigious collectibles.

:09:27.:09:28.

The collection includes a block of tuppeny Blues worth

:09:29.:09:31.

just under a million, a stamp with a printing

:09:32.:09:35.

error valued at ?135,000, and the largest gold coin ever

:09:36.:09:41.

These are little slices of history that stood the test of time. They

:09:42.:09:54.

have lived through world wars, they have lived through global conflicts.

:09:55.:09:59.

They have lived through periods of recession and financial instability

:10:00.:10:04.

already, and they are still rare, they are still pressures, they still

:10:05.:10:09.

resonate with history, and that's what gives them their value.

:10:10.:10:11.

What a day for it - more than 450 boys from Jersey's De

:10:12.:10:14.

la Salle College have been on their annual walk.

:10:15.:10:16.

I say walk, but it's more like a hike, -

:10:17.:10:18.

with a distance of 36 miles from start to finish.

:10:19.:10:21.

These are the boys as they were just past St Catherine's

:10:22.:10:23.

Last year, the college raised more than ?14,000 for charity.

:10:24.:10:31.

Ah, that takes me back to my days at De La Salle.

:10:32.:10:34.

I did that same walk far too many years ago to mention.

:10:35.:10:37.

I remember I couldn't walk the next day.

:10:38.:10:39.

Also, all the years I took part, it always rained.

:10:40.:10:47.

David, it was a great day to be out and about?

:10:48.:10:50.

It certainly was, yes, some pretty great temperatures. Normally, we

:10:51.:10:58.

expect to see temperatures around 11-12 in the month of March. Today,

:10:59.:11:03.

we soared up to 19 degrees. A little sunshine and warm air from the south

:11:04.:11:06.

giving us is very good temperatures. Not quite so warm tomorrow. So the

:11:07.:11:10.

rain, some sunny spells, and generally a bit fresher than it has

:11:11.:11:14.

felt today. We have one when a friend coming in later tonight. It

:11:15.:11:18.

will take its time to arrive, so pleasant and warm evening, and then

:11:19.:11:20.

gradually through the night to come, this first weather system will

:11:21.:11:24.

produce outbreaks of rain. Once that moves the other side of us, it

:11:25.:11:28.

introduces, as I mentioned, slightly fresh air. Another one will follow,

:11:29.:11:33.

but will really reach us to later in the evening. Between the two, some

:11:34.:11:37.

fine weather, but by Saturday, risk of seeing some showers around a

:11:38.:11:41.

little area of low pressure. So quite a lot happening in the weather

:11:42.:11:45.

at the moment. Certainly, warm this evening. This is the rain now coming

:11:46.:11:48.

especially. That will creep towards especially. That will creep towards

:11:49.:11:52.

us through the night to come, but initially, a lovely evening, very

:11:53.:11:55.

pleasant. Winds starting to freshen a little bit ahead of that band of

:11:56.:11:57.

cloud and rain. Some of that rain cloud and rain. Some of that rain

:11:58.:12:00.

becoming widespread by the morning. 10 degrees the overnight low, so

:12:01.:12:05.

quite mild. Tomorrow, the rain will peter out quite quickly by

:12:06.:12:08.

mid-to-late morning. The sunshine will be back out, and a fine day

:12:09.:12:11.

with some spells of sunshine, patchy cloud floating by, and not as warm

:12:12.:12:17.

as today, 14-15 the maximum temperature. Those are our times of

:12:18.:12:22.

high water. And for our surfers, clean surfing

:12:23.:12:30.

with southerly winds. Most of our favourable west or north west facing

:12:31.:12:35.

beaches will be between 2-4 feet and clean, and the coastal waters for

:12:36.:12:38.

gas, winds are self south-west of, force for- five, and the risk of

:12:39.:12:42.

showers were generally moderate or good visibility. This looks quite

:12:43.:12:48.

rain overnight tomorrow night, gone rain overnight tomorrow night, gone

:12:49.:12:52.

by Saturday morning. Saturday predominantly dry, slightly cooler,

:12:53.:12:55.

the risk of if you showers. Sunday high pressure comes back, so lovely,

:12:56.:12:57.

settled day, more on Monday. settled day, more on Monday.

:12:58.:13:02.

Charlie. You are saying quite promising. I know rain for tomorrow,

:13:03.:13:06.

but Saturday and Sunday, the temperatures are way down. Quite

:13:07.:13:10.

disappointing, as today has been so gorgeous. Thank you very much.

:13:11.:13:14.

And it we go, quickly gets bored. Ahead of their big cup game on

:13:15.:13:19.

Sunday, Jersey Reds have announced their former hooker will be legal's

:13:20.:13:23.

new forward coach. He will arrive from Australia in the summer to

:13:24.:13:26.

start work on the next season. That is your lot for me from the

:13:27.:13:29.

time being. I'm back just before 8,

:13:30.:13:31.

then again at 10:25. The upgrading of the Georgian

:13:32.:13:33.

Library Roof and other work on the Devon and Exeter Institution

:13:34.:13:48.

will help to protect it's collection of rare

:13:49.:13:50.

books and newspapers - some dating back

:13:51.:13:52.

to the 16th century. As Hamish Marshall reports,

:13:53.:13:54.

the old roof was so heavy it was in danger of bringing

:13:55.:13:56.

the building down. As good as new, but still true

:13:57.:14:04.

to its original design. It's taken five years,

:14:05.:14:07.

but now the library of the Institution, which has an important

:14:08.:14:10.

collection of local books, can have daylight again -

:14:11.:14:12.

the way those who created it two They were designed to let

:14:13.:14:15.

the natural light into the library and 200 years ago they depended

:14:16.:14:23.

on natural light more

:14:24.:14:24.

than anything else. So it's really put us back

:14:25.:14:26.

on a very solid footing. This was the scene last

:14:27.:14:38.

summer when we saw the project - funded by Historic England

:14:39.:14:40.

and the Heritage Lottery Fund - But now this is no

:14:41.:14:43.

longer a building site. It was quite daunting

:14:44.:14:48.

looking at the work that was needed to do, with

:14:49.:14:50.

the unknown aspects of this job. Again with the people

:14:51.:14:53.

you had, it does This crane wasn't here last summer,

:14:54.:14:55.

it's part of demolition of the In fact, builders and staff

:14:56.:15:03.

stood by here on the Institution's roof during the fire

:15:04.:15:10.

last autumn, in case it spread. Well, the roof is now

:15:11.:15:15.

covered with this copper Before this was lead, which was

:15:16.:15:17.

actually so heavy the building was actually moving and here

:15:18.:15:23.

we have got a mixture of the the old and the

:15:24.:15:25.

new. These are the slates that came off

:15:26.:15:27.

when the work began. There wasn't quite

:15:28.:15:30.

enough to cover the building at the end,

:15:31.:15:31.

so some new ones have been And inside, a growing number

:15:32.:15:34.

of students like Oscar are Here it has other people

:15:35.:15:39.

doing other things. It has not just students working

:15:40.:15:42.

on essays, it's sort of a more Times may have changed,

:15:43.:15:45.

but now we have a new chapter in the battle to protect

:15:46.:15:57.

and preserve this rare collection of books,

:15:58.:16:00.

charting the South West Next on Spotlight a first glimpse

time, how one family captured on film the horror

:16:21.:16:23.

of the Torrey Canyon disaster. And sculpting in sand -

:16:24.:16:26.

we'll reveal the finished works After an eighteen month closure,

:16:27.:16:28.

the refurbished Tate St Ives The new extension is still under

:16:29.:16:39.

construction and won't open until the Autumn, but the existing

:16:40.:16:45.

building is hosting a brand new exhibition

:16:46.:16:47.

and Spotlight's Lucie Fisher has So this is Jessica Warboy's sea

or museums to create a work, she goes to the nearest sea, bit of sea

or ocean, to get the natural She throws them in the sea

:17:04.:17:07.

and she actually makes the sea a participant in the work,

:17:08.:17:16.

the sea makes the work. Absolutely and this is a mix

:17:17.:17:21.

of really ceramic art by young contemporary artists,

:17:22.:17:28.

we also have a lot of the potters like Jill Crowley here with some

:17:29.:17:32.

of her absolutely amazing and crazy

:17:33.:17:38.

if I may say teapot. You have got Denise Wren,

:17:39.:17:41.

all she did was elephants. And in here what we have

:17:42.:17:47.

got is the Californian Clay Revolution from

:17:48.:17:49.

the 1950s and '60s. This work is in part a response

:17:50.:17:53.

to the way in which these other artists, these west

:17:54.:18:00.

coast ceramacists work, response - saying people

:18:01.:18:03.

like Barbera Hepworth is as present in my work as much

:18:04.:18:10.

as one of these other Mark Osterfield told me

:18:11.:18:12.

what a relief it is to finally be opening

:18:13.:18:23.

This is our core purpose and this is the first step.

:18:24.:18:31.

So we will be open over the summer, we will have this excellent

:18:32.:18:34.

show for all our visitors and the local community in the summer.

:18:35.:18:37.

But come the autumn, we will be launching

:18:38.:18:39.

the new Tate St Ives and

:18:40.:18:40.

And that step change is well under way outside.

:18:41.:18:47.

On the right we have the new loading bay, which is of a

:18:48.:18:51.

scale that means we can bring in huge artworks to Cornwall,

:18:52.:18:53.

And we've got a really good lift in order to

:18:54.:18:57.

bring them into the gallery and to lower them down

:18:58.:19:00.

and to the left you can just see the edge of the roofscape above our

:19:01.:19:03.

So we have a 500 square metre gallery

:19:04.:19:06.

space, which is the equivalent of all or other gallery spaces

:19:07.:19:09.

And this is the new activity room for families.

:19:10.:19:12.

Come tomorrow it will be a "clayground"

:19:13.:19:14.

After 18 months of closure, everybody here is full of

:19:15.:19:19.

excitement for the new opening tomorrow.

:19:20.:19:27.

Now you may remember a couple of weeks ago we covered the 50th

:19:28.:19:30.

anniversary of the day the Torrey Canyon supertanker ran

:19:31.:19:32.

aground on rocks between Lands End and the Isles of Scilly.

:19:33.:19:35.

Well today marks the day the ship - which polluted much of the Cornish

:19:36.:19:38.

coast causing Britain's biggest ever oil spill -

:19:39.:19:40.

A former fireman has now come forward with some previously unseen

:19:41.:19:44.

footage that was recorded on his family's cine camera

:19:45.:19:46.

and Eleanor Parkinson has been to meet him.

:19:47.:19:57.

This isn't an ordinary film, it is a record of a piece of history. In

:19:58.:20:15.

1967 the supertanker Torrey Canyon spills her cargo of oil and locals

:20:16.:20:20.

can smell it reaching the shore. The home video was shot by Ray Ireland.

:20:21.:20:26.

I wint out in the garden and I could smell it. I said, the oil's coming

:20:27.:20:34.

in. That is the beach. You can see it is just one mass of tar. It is

:20:35.:20:40.

absolutely, like... Melted chocolate. Hundreds of thousands of

:20:41.:20:46.

tonnes of detergent is brought in to try and break up the oil. In some

:20:47.:20:51.

locations it is brought by helicopter. This is the early stages

:20:52.:20:58.

of spraying, they had no automatic pumps. They had a manual pump. Until

:20:59.:21:03.

things progressed and they increased and got some better equipment.

:21:04.:21:09.

Despite their best efforts the detergent didn't work and it wasn't

:21:10.:21:15.

good for those handling it. I know one fire man, after he said, I had

:21:16.:21:22.

to leave the service, he showed his hands and they were bad. As the days

:21:23.:21:27.

passed it was clear the impact on wildlife was huge. Look at that

:21:28.:21:32.

bird. Poor thing can't move, can it? It was all the flying birds that go

:21:33.:21:38.

into the water and that then. It was quite a mess. There was only one

:21:39.:21:48.

place for them - bye-bye. A decision was made to bomb the tanker and she

:21:49.:21:52.

sank. But the coastline took years to recover. Even ten years after the

:21:53.:21:58.

Torrey Canyon, you could remember coming home from a day on the beach

:21:59.:22:06.

and having to sit and scrape the tar off your feet with a lollipop stick.

:22:07.:22:13.

The memories are still as strong as the day of the disaster.

:22:14.:22:16.

And if you want to hear more about the Torrey Canyon disaster,

:22:17.:22:19.

there's a documentary currently available on the BBC Radio iplayer

:22:20.:22:21.

called "Torrey Canyon and the Toxic Tides".

:22:22.:22:29.

I can remember scraping tar off my feet as well.

:22:30.:22:34.

Now, if you've ever been on the beach and tried to impress

:22:35.:22:37.

the family by making something out of sand, you'll know

:22:38.:22:39.

So prepare to be completely blown away by the pros!

:22:40.:22:43.

Artists at an attraction in Dorset have even been painting their sand

:22:44.:22:46.

The team in Weymouth is led by Mark Anderson whose family

:22:47.:22:50.

The idea of using colour was a tribute to my grandfather who

:22:51.:23:03.

started painting with the sand. That was a first. He started with Kong

:23:04.:23:10.

and nearly all of them were made. We are doing the tiger that. Was one of

:23:11.:23:15.

his first. And then Kong as well. We are doing that and that will be

:23:16.:23:20.

coloured throughout the season. Because it is not supporting

:23:21.:23:23.

anything, we wet it down, pack it into place and carve it out using

:23:24.:23:30.

typically a trowel of some sort and then I use a couple of different

:23:31.:23:37.

types of brush to get the effect of an animal, and the fur. A bit of a

:23:38.:23:42.

change this year. We have been asked many times when, if the people can

:23:43.:23:48.

see the sculptors working. We have changed a few from last year and we

:23:49.:23:53.

are going to keep a couple of the most popular ones and change a

:23:54.:23:57.

through and hopefully there is always somebody here working. So we

:23:58.:24:01.

are under a roof and nothing gets washed away. No issues with the

:24:02.:24:07.

weather. Hopefully. The British weather. The good old British

:24:08.:24:16.

weather. Incredible. The detail was incredible. And the good old British

:24:17.:24:22.

weather, but it has been warm today. It has been lovely Daid. Ly --

:24:23.:24:33.

today. We have had some really good temperatures, certainly the warmest

:24:34.:24:38.

day of the year so far. St Helier was top at 19 degrees. Well above

:24:39.:24:46.

the average for the time of year. Where we have had the cloud and rain

:24:47.:24:54.

its around 12 degrees. This stripe of blue, the rain, has been trouble

:24:55.:24:57.

and it has been back and forth across Cornwall. More to come

:24:58.:25:03.

tonight. And ahead of it some breaks in the cloud, but some showers. Not

:25:04.:25:07.

a bad evening for some of us. The forecast tomorrow is not quite so

:25:08.:25:12.

warm A fresher feel to the day. Some sunshine, but also some showers. If

:25:13.:25:20.

anything more persistent rain later in the day. We have a weather front

:25:21.:25:25.

that will move through steadily and by lunch tooichl tomorrow it is

:25:26.:25:31.

across the central part of Britain. We have two systems. This will bring

:25:32.:25:36.

more rain tomorrow night. But it should be going through by the time

:25:37.:25:40.

we get into the start of weekend. Plenty of showers on Saturday. Some

:25:41.:25:44.

hail and thunder. And then high pressure comes back for Sunday. So

:25:45.:25:48.

of two days, Sunday is the better day. That is the picture that we

:25:49.:25:52.

have had tonight with that rain coming and going. It will move

:25:53.:25:56.

across us. But before that we have had some pleasant late sunshine.

:25:57.:26:04.

This was this afternoon in Okehampton. We have had some warmth

:26:05.:26:08.

from the sun and it has been a pleasant day. There is the risk of

:26:09.:26:12.

some showers tonight. But many of us getting away with a dry start to the

:26:13.:26:16.

night. But rain will come in fairly swiftly through the night and be

:26:17.:26:22.

across us by the morning. These pictures filmed by our cameraman,

:26:23.:26:26.

Alex. Thank you for those. Tonight the cloud will produce some rain and

:26:27.:26:32.

continue eastwards. It is mild night at ten or 11 degrees. Some rain in

:26:33.:26:37.

the morning, but moving quickly and the skies will clear, the sun will

:26:38.:26:43.

come out. Before that line of more persistent rain returns late in the

:26:44.:26:49.

day. So a reasonable day. Not a warm as today. 14 the maximum

:26:50.:26:55.

temperature. The Isles of Scilly a bright first half of the day and

:26:56.:26:59.

then it will cloud over. There is the times of high water. Plymouth is

:27:00.:27:06.

9.02. Some reasonable waves for the surfers.

:27:07.:27:19.

Some sharp showers on Saturday. Sunday is a fine day. Monday also

:27:20.:27:26.

fine and dry. Just a bit more cloud. Have a good evening. Thank you,

:27:27.:27:34.

David. We have put that film of Torrey Canyon on our Facebook page

:27:35.:27:40.

and we will be back at 6.30 tomorrow. Good night.

:27:41.:27:43.
