There is not a great deal of changing weather pattern. More good

weather to come. But the chance of a change the weekend.

:00:58.:01:01.

Join me for the full weather forecast shortly.

:01:02.:01:03.

Repairs to a giant model dinosaur sparked a fire at a Jersey

:01:04.:01:06.

Tamba Park in St Lawrence had to be evacuated after the fire started

:01:07.:01:10.

in a greenhouse where staff were welding teeth

:01:11.:01:12.

No-one was hurt, but it took three fire engines and nearly 20

:01:13.:01:26.

firefighters to bring the flames under control,

:01:27.:01:28.

Thick black smoke could be seen for miles, after a welder doing dino

:01:29.:01:32.

dentistry at the St Lawrence theme park sparked a big fire.

:01:33.:01:35.

Staff were doing routine maintenance on the exhibit when it caught fire.

:01:36.:01:38.

Flames soon spread to plastic on the roof, on to a car

:01:39.:01:41.

We noticed some black smoke appearing from behind the

:01:42.:01:54.

greenhouses and then there was some explosions and bounds. The smoke got

:01:55.:01:59.

a lot worse, building up into the scary. We decided to stay

everywhere. but it took 19 firefighters

a couple of hours to bring They say the smoke was particularly

particular, involving plastic, is going to involved in some nasty

chemicals. The firefighters limited the fire very quickly, to eliminate

:02:34.:02:34.

any risk. Roads close to the the park

were closed for several hours Visitors praised the Tamba

and assaulted her while she thought he was someone else.

:03:21.:03:23.

Alison Moss was at the start of the four-day trial

:03:24.:03:26.

in Jersey's Royal Court. This is not the archetypal

:03:27.:03:31.

rape case of struggling and shouting to stop,

:03:32.:03:33.

the court was told by the prosecution,

:03:34.:03:36.

but it was still rape, with the traumatic consequences

:03:37.:03:40.

associated with it. On this the first day

:08:32.:08:35.

once-in-a-lifetime trip Not one of sorrow, but one

:08:36.:08:37.

of hope and empowerment. They are from homes that

:08:38.:08:44.

were very violent to them. Mothers that have,

literally, disowned them. Fathers who have run

away from children, And for them, that is a painful

thing, but thank God, they are young and can easily

doesn't matter how bad things were, And it was well received

by these students. I thought I was absolutely amazing.

:09:04.:09:22.

The things we take for granted, they regard as privileges, but it was

:09:23.:09:25.

great to see them enjoying themselves and fantastic to watch

them. It is amazing that they have such a positive attitude to life.

:09:31.:09:39.

You can be seven years old and have the confidence to get up on stage

:09:40.:09:40.

and sing and dance. This is the second time they have

been invited to the school. We are very proud of our

international links and this just links in very well with that.

Jersey is an island. We are part of the world and part

:09:49.:09:51.

of growing up and being educated is to understand how

:09:52.:09:54.

that world works. And for the first time, the choir

:09:55.:09:56.

is taking their message to Guernsey, where they will be

Jack Nowell has become the first ever Exeter Chiefs player to be

The 24-year old was today named in the 41-man squad for the summer

:13:33.:13:37.

The first the Cornishman heard of his inclusion

:13:38.:13:40.

was when the touring party was announced on television.

:13:41.:13:43.

And as Andy Birkett found out, there was quite a celebration.

:13:44.:13:54.

Jack Nowell, Exeter Chiefs and England.

:13:55.:13:55.

To be named in that is obviously a massive

:13:56.:14:02.

thing for myself and for the

:14:03.:14:04.

I'm very excited, it's any rugby players dream.

:14:05.:14:10.

Not only play into the country but a chance to go on

:14:11.:14:14.

tour with the Lions is massive and to be given a chance now is go

:14:15.:14:17.

It's a chance the popular Cornishman has

:14:18.:14:21.

Everyone around the club is naturally delighted.

:14:22.:14:23.

To have a current British Lion in your team is

:14:24.:14:26.

For it to be one of the players that has come to your

academy system and have only played their Premiership rugby year at one

:14:32.:14:34.

club and becoming international here and now become a British line, it

:14:35.:14:39.

doesn't really get any better than that from the club's perspective

:14:40.:14:42.

for me as well, the fact that it's happened to such a good

To be honest, I was home this weekend,

:14:56.:15:01.

they treat me the same as

:15:02.:15:09.

and take bike rides along the green and things.

:15:10.:15:11.

Identical bid to much different, but their role

:15:12.:15:13.

It's nice to be able to share that with them.

:15:14.:15:20.

Can you just talk me through this Jack about your dream of being a

:15:21.:15:23.

You notice a shirt no? Yes I am wearing the shirt. I was given on a

:15:24.:15:37.

tour when I was younger, but I was never as I be wearing one in my

career. Delete that now though. A nine-year old from Cornwall has

:16:20.:16:23.

penny sweets, sherbet and everything. She's doing this to

In his own: 01 hygiene certificate and dad Steve has sorted out her own

years ago with her first sticker shock and now she asked me to make

impressed by your ingenuity. This young lady, what and entrepreneur at

such a young age. I take my hat off to her. Especially for the charity

:17:16.:17:19.

that she is raising money for. And even at the tender age of nine, she

:17:20.:17:24.

is already coming up with their own sales techniques. It would be

:17:25.:17:35.

quicker to serve people, these sweets equal a pound, so it would

:17:36.:17:41.

take me ages to sell these as individually but how about these ?1

:17:42.:17:48.

packs. They would love to her own shop and by the looks of it she

:17:49.:17:51.

knows exactly what to do to make it happen. A successful businesswoman

in the making their I think. Lots of people start in the market don't

they? A 17-year-old fisherman from Cornwall at is the subject of a

:18:05.:18:09.

documentary that has won the in International film Festival.

:18:10.:18:14.

Spotlight has gone to meet the people who made the film.

:18:15.:18:29.

A weather-beaten face, the sort of face you read about from good

:18:30.:18:38.

writers. Shot over a period of three years, this portrait of fisherman

:18:39.:18:41.

Malcolm Baker has won plaudits in Britain and America. Last month, it

:18:42.:18:47.

picked up on the ward at San Francisco's International Ocean film

:18:48.:18:50.

Festival. The idea for the film came about when Austrian Leo cataract

:18:51.:19:00.

came to work in Cornwall. I was fascinated by his life his work and

:19:01.:19:06.

I got to know him a bit better which then became me not going back to

:19:07.:19:14.

Austria so I would just like to stop and stay little bit with Malcolm

:19:15.:19:22.

which we did for seven years. But Knockin was initially reluctant to

:19:23.:19:30.

be the subject of the documentary. He won in the end. The traditional

:19:31.:19:39.

skill set Malcolm learnt are celebrated in the film. But in call

:19:40.:19:43.

centre day, there is no one to follow him when he retires. That's

:19:44.:19:56.

the downside of it, now, really. But that's life I suppose. But some

:19:57.:20:01.

skills are being passed on through the's project. These children from

:20:02.:20:05.

Austria on and exchange programme benefit from Malcolm's has a

:20:06.:20:15.

experience. It's about how people see changes for young people living

:20:16.:20:18.

here. There are so many people in the film that it is a community

:20:19.:20:29.

film. Those 25 in a string... But what was the hardest part of being

:20:30.:20:32.

in the film from Malcolm? Two trying not to square swear. The film makers

:20:33.:20:42.

are trying to arrange some local screening soon. I like his style.

:20:43.:20:52.

Now in the last hour and a half the 20 17th tool ships regatta has got

:20:53.:20:57.

underway in South Devon. The race features some of the world's largest

:20:58.:21:06.

sailing ships. This was the scene in the Torbay at the start of the first

:21:07.:21:11.

leg to Portugal. We've seen some lovely blue skies, but what are

:21:12.:21:15.

conditions like the overs. Here's the forger. The winter get that

:21:16.:21:24.

strong, but nice calm seas. That's not going to change that much, the

:21:25.:21:28.

fine weather continues. Quite a big change come the weekend I'll come to

:21:29.:21:33.

that in a second. Perhaps more cloud around them recently but we've had

:21:34.:21:39.

some lovely sunrises and sunsets. This was Dorset in the morning, some

:21:40.:21:44.

lovely flowers and courts in flower. This was the sunrise this morning in

:21:45.:21:50.

Charlestown. Glorious condition through most of us, there has been a

:21:51.:21:57.

bit of cloud floating around but it continues to be fine this evening.

:21:58.:22:00.

Overnight, there is a bit more in the way of cloud coming our way and

:22:01.:22:04.

that will drift across us by the morning. So there is a bit more

:22:05.:22:07.

cloud around tomorrow morning how much rain we will see but I think

:22:08.:22:12.

little if any and the cloud should break up with any tool either

:22:13.:22:17.

sunshine through especially in the afternoon. This area of high

:22:18.:22:23.

pressure is pretty strong and is weakening the low pressure coming

:22:24.:22:27.

from the north. By the middle of the day on Friday we do have weather

:22:28.:22:32.

systems trying to make progress. This is the one that arrives on

:22:33.:22:37.

Saturday which brings a band of cloud and returns northward. So

:22:38.:22:40.

Sunday looks like it will be a largely fine day. Quite a big change

:22:41.:22:43.

on this weather front as it comes down from the North later, overnight

:22:44.:22:48.

on Sunday night and into Monday. We leave the area of high pressure and

:22:49.:22:52.

for those that need it the could be some significant rainfall on Monday.

:22:53.:22:59.

Until then lots of fine and dry weather and relatively mild. As that

:23:00.:23:04.

weather front arrives on Sunday into Monday the cold air flights in, so

:23:05.:23:07.

make the most of the warmth that were going to see over the next few

:23:08.:23:13.

days because it does cooldown early next week. That is the weather front
