Good evening and welcome

to BBC Channel Islands.

0:00:030:00:05

I'm Clare Burton with

the headlines here tonight.

0:00:050:00:08

Big changes for States workers -

staff finally learn how new pay

0:00:080:00:11

and conditions will affect them,

but some unions aren't happy.

0:00:110:00:21

The issues around shift pay, meal

breaks, the valuation process,

0:00:210:00:27

pensions, all that has not been

resolved.

0:00:270:00:30

A hike in property tax

for Guernsey as the budget

0:00:300:00:32

for next year is approved.

0:00:320:00:37

After a fine day today with good

spells of sunshine it is all strange

0:00:370:00:41

for tomorrow, if not cloudy with

rain. Stay tuned for the forecast.

0:00:410:00:50

Thousands of public sector staff

in Jersey today learnt

0:00:530:00:55

how they'll be affected by a major

overhaul of the States workforce.

0:00:550:00:58

For many it'll mean

a pay rise of up to 20%.

0:00:580:01:03

But others will see their wages cut.

0:01:030:01:05

There are also changes to working

hours, shift pay and meal breaks -

0:01:050:01:08

which the Government believes

will provide a simpler,

0:01:080:01:12

fairer system.

0:01:120:01:13

But some unions are angry the final

offer has been put to workers

0:01:130:01:16

without their agreement.

0:01:160:01:17

Emma Chambers has more.

0:01:170:01:21

Paramedics, civil servants,

nurses and manual workers -

0:01:210:01:23

the people who keep us healthy

and keep the island's

0:01:230:01:25

services ticking along.

0:01:250:01:27

But the time has come

for the Government to

0:01:270:01:29

change how these jobs -

as well as thousands of others -

0:01:290:01:32

are structured and paid.

0:01:320:01:34

The Government is modernising

the public sector to get rid

0:01:340:01:36

of what it's described as historical

inconsistencies and

0:01:360:01:39

an unfair framework.

0:01:390:01:44

It wants to reduce the current 75

pay grades and 20 sets of terms

0:01:440:01:47

and conditions within the States

of Jersey to 10 pay grades and 1 set

0:01:470:01:50

of T's and C's for all.

0:01:500:01:52

This will result in pay increases

for many between 7% and 21%.

0:01:520:01:59

This is about us meeting our

obligation as an employer to reward

0:01:590:02:02

people fairly, appropriately.

0:02:020:02:12

And you get the right pay for the

job compared to similar jobs in the

0:02:130:02:17

organisation. That has to be done.

0:02:170:02:20

But the Union Unite have hit back

saying this is a premature move.

0:02:200:02:23

Despite negotiations

spanning three years,

0:02:230:02:24

they still have concerns around

pensions, evaluation process

0:02:240:02:26

and fixing pay possibly below

the cost of living until 2020.

0:02:260:02:31

Under the circumstances

we will be recommending

0:02:310:02:34

rejection of the offer,

we need to get back

0:02:340:02:36

around the table.

0:02:360:02:39

There were some members of staff

who are going to do quite well out

0:02:390:02:42

of it but that won't apply

to everybody, some are going to be

0:02:420:02:45

financially hurt, and hurt badly.

0:02:450:02:48

States employees have already

starting seeking advice

0:02:480:02:50

within hours of the new changes.

0:02:500:02:53

We've received a large number

of emails as well as phone calls

0:02:530:02:56

at our branch office at this stage

it wouldn't be correct for us

0:02:560:03:01

to give too much information as many

members of staff are still waiting

0:03:010:03:04

to receive their information packs

but we've had varied responses.

0:03:040:03:09

The second phase of the pay deal

is still yet to be put

0:03:090:03:13

to uniformed services,

executives and teachers.

0:03:130:03:15

Union members now have to decide

whether they accept this final deal

0:03:150:03:18

which will cost the States

£47 million over

0:03:180:03:23

the next four years.

0:03:230:03:29

Guernsey's budget for

2018 has been voted

0:03:290:03:32

through by States members,

with very few changes

0:03:320:03:33

and little opposition.

0:03:340:03:37

But there was no shortage of passion

during some of today's speeches,

0:03:370:03:39

with issues such as Aurigny's debts,

fuel supplies and high-paid civil

0:03:390:03:44

servants all featuring.

0:03:440:03:45

Earlier our reporter

Mark Inchley joined me

0:03:450:03:47

from our Guernsey studio to explain.

0:03:470:03:50

Well, it's been described as

a budget the States can be proud of.

0:03:500:03:53

The headlines remain a 5%

increase in personal

0:03:530:03:56

income tax allowance,

increases on fuel,

0:03:560:04:01

alcohol and cigarettes

as well as on property tax or TRP.

0:04:010:04:04

Also money transferred

into States reserves

0:04:040:04:08

for the first time in a decade.

0:04:080:04:09

President of the Policy and

Resources Committee Gavin St Pier

0:04:090:04:12

described it as a fair and balanced

budget where low and middle income

0:04:120:04:15

earners would be better off.

0:04:150:04:21

But the debate did raise

other issues didn't it?

0:04:210:04:23

Yes a few.

0:04:230:04:25

The most passionate or emotional

speech of the day came from

0:04:250:04:27

Alderney Representative Louis Jean

who said it was time to stop blaming

0:04:270:04:30

Alderney for losses made

by the States-owned airline Aurigny

0:04:300:04:34

and he called for a forensic

analysis of its accounts.

0:04:340:04:38

The island itself is

very concerned over it

0:04:380:04:41

and the businesses are affected

by it and it's very serious.

0:04:410:04:46

Every man woman and child wants

a resolution to this and certainly

0:04:460:04:51

doesn't want to see the island

threatened or blamed for what's

0:04:510:04:56

going on when it's actually,

we feel, the management of Aurigny's

0:04:560:04:58

fault for not addressing

these problems.

0:04:580:05:02

In response, Aurigny said it

provided an incredibly high level

0:05:020:05:06

of service to the Alderney community

and refuted any claims

0:05:060:05:09

that it doesn't support

the island's economy.

0:05:090:05:12

But there were other issues raised

during the States debate.

0:05:120:05:15

Deputy Peter Ferbrache complained

that there had been no review

0:05:150:05:18

of high-paid civil servants as part

of the wider transformation

0:05:180:05:20

of the States.

0:05:200:05:22

And Deputies Barry Paint

and Lester Queripel called for more

0:05:220:05:25

information about a review of how

fuel is delivered to the island

0:05:250:05:29

in future, threatening to leak

damaging information to the media

0:05:290:05:33

if they weren't given answers

by the end of the week.

0:05:330:05:39

Jersey's Treasury Minister has been

0:05:390:05:41

reassuring business leaders Jersey

IS a transparent and

0:05:410:05:43

well-regulated tax jurisdiction,

following revelations

0:05:430:05:46

in the Paradise Papers.

0:05:460:05:52

The documents showed Apple

chose Jersey to shelter

0:05:520:05:54

some of its profits,

saving the company billions

0:05:540:05:56

in corporation tax.

0:05:560:05:57

The arrangement isn't illegal -

and the Jersey Financial Services

0:05:570:06:00

Commission argues there's no

evidence the firm

0:06:000:06:01

did keep cash here.

0:06:010:06:03

But Senator Alan Maclean told

a Chamber of Commerce lunch

0:06:030:06:05

the attention was 'unwanted'.

0:06:050:06:11

And the fact that this has come out

as unwanted, we would prevent it had

0:06:110:06:16

not happened. But we have to be

realistic, there will always be

0:06:160:06:21

circumstances like this and tell

other big or small and issuers, it

0:06:210:06:24

can get twisted in the national

international media to look at times

0:06:240:06:29

of much worse than perhaps is the

case. I think the facts when they

0:06:290:06:33

come out in this issue will prove

that jersey has not been involved in

0:06:330:06:37

any wrongdoing.

0:06:370:06:40

An inquest has heard hospital staff

lacked the necessary

0:06:400:06:42

training to use equipment to move

a patient who fell from

0:06:420:06:45

a hoist and later died.

0:06:450:06:46

The 83-year-old woman

from St Clement was being

0:06:460:06:48

cared for on Oak Ward

at Jersey's St Saviour's Hospital

0:06:480:06:50

last March, when she fell

after being bathed.

0:06:500:06:53

As a result, the health department

has replaced the equipment and given

0:06:530:06:56

staff more training.

0:06:560:06:57

Marian McNamee was at

this morning's inquest.

0:06:570:06:59

The inquest heard how the patient,

Mary Cornish, had finished her usual

0:06:590:07:02

bathing routine when she fell

from the hoist being used

0:07:020:07:04

by nurses to lift her.

0:07:040:07:09

She hit and cut her

head on the ground.

0:07:090:07:18

She was transferred

to the General Hospital and later

0:07:180:07:20

developed bronchial pneumonia,

the recorded cause of death.

0:07:200:07:23

An inspector's report was read

to the inquest and we were given

0:07:230:07:26

access to a photographic

reconstruction where it could be

0:07:260:07:29

seen that a seat belt hadn't been

used with the hoist.

0:07:290:07:32

It was also found that staff

did not have appropriate

0:07:320:07:34

or up-to-date training to use

this specialist equipment.

0:07:340:07:37

Describing what she termed

weaknesses in the system,

0:07:370:07:40

the inspector recommended changes.

0:07:400:07:43

As a result the hoists have been

replaced and there is now a detailed

0:07:430:07:48

and regular training plan in place.

0:07:480:07:52

After the hearing Mrs

Cornish's daughters gave

0:07:520:07:54

the BBC this statement.

0:07:540:08:01

The family went on to tell us

they're encouraged that the health

0:08:160:08:19

department has taken action to keep

patients safe in the future.

0:08:190:08:23

Marian McNamee, BBC

Channel Islands News, Jersey.

0:08:230:08:29

Gun owners in the Channel

Islands who wish

0:08:290:08:31

to surrender their firearms can do

so from Monday, as part

0:08:310:08:34

of a national police appeal.

0:08:340:08:35

The Guernsey and Jersey forces

are joining a two-week British

0:08:350:08:38

campaign called Operation Aztec

urging people to hand in any

0:08:380:08:42

unlawfully held or unwanted

guns and ammunition.

0:08:420:08:45

Police say the amnesty

is an opportunity to get more

0:08:450:08:48

firearms out of harm's way.

0:08:480:08:51

Work to turn a Victorian fort

in Alderney into a luxury hotel

0:08:510:08:54

could start next year.

0:08:540:08:57

Plans to redevelop Fort Tourgis at

a cost of £17.5 million had stalled.

0:08:570:09:01

The developer blamed

the delay on the global

0:09:010:09:06

financial crisis and Brexit,

but he's now confident

0:09:060:09:08

work can start in 2018.

0:09:080:09:13

You're watching the BBC

in the Channel Islands.

0:09:130:09:15

Later in Spotlight with Justin

and Victoria, an injured

0:09:150:09:17

Royal Marine prepares to row solo

across the Atlantic,

0:09:170:09:20

helped by a Jerseyman who completed

the challenge 20 years ago.

0:09:200:09:23

helped by a Jerseyman who completed

the challenge 20 years ago.

0:09:230:09:29

First the weather and Dan is here.

0:09:320:09:38

Quite cool in the wings today but

bright, all change for tomorrow,

0:09:380:09:43

milder but a not cloudy. This is

earlier today, tomorrow a lot damper

0:09:430:09:48

for many. Cloud, missed and fork

with rain and drizzle as well. Today

0:09:480:09:53

between the areas of cloud, good

spells of sunshine but thanks to a

0:09:530:09:59

ridge of high pressure, short-lived

but that'll decay overnight and

0:09:590:10:05

allowing weather fronts to move in

for tomorrow. This one bringing a

0:10:050:10:09

lot of cloud and rain tomorrow and

the edge of that high pressure, for

0:10:090:10:12

the weather fronts push in for

Friday and into the weekend bringing

0:10:120:10:17

rain at times. At the moment, dry,

clear skies and temperatures dipping

0:10:170:10:22

quite swiftly this evening. Into

single figures but we start to see

0:10:220:10:28

the cloud pushing and and rain the

soil temperatures starts to pick up

0:10:280:10:32

again, like twins overnight,

north-westerly 's. Tomorrow starts

0:10:320:10:38

rather dumb, mist and fog, rain

through much of the morning. Feeling

0:10:380:10:44

and for the showers, bright spills

into the afternoon. Highs of 14.

0:10:440:10:54

Times of high water...

0:10:540:11:02

As for our coastal waters, wins

coming west north-west, generally

0:11:070:11:14

good visibility. Into Friday, still

a future was around, bright and

0:11:140:11:23

sunny spells but also breaks of

rain, milder and to Friday and that

0:11:230:11:28

of the weekend but winds picking up

and becoming breezy into the

0:11:280:11:32

weekend, wins from a northerly

direction which starts to make it

0:11:320:11:35

feel cooler. By Sunday, temperatures

could be ten or 11, a few showers

0:11:350:11:42

was around but bright and sunny

spells at times but also cold by

0:11:420:11:46

night. A bit of everything in our

forecast. That is

0:11:460:11:49

night. A bit of everything in our

forecast. That is the news and

0:11:490:11:51

weather from BBC Channel Islands

this Wednesday evening. I am back

0:11:510:11:54

after the news at 10pm.

0:11:540:11:59

And after a fine day today it's all

change for tomorrow, becoming a lot

0:11:590:12:02

cloud. Milder though with some

outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Stay

0:12:020:12:05

tuned for the forecast.

0:12:050:12:09

Now how does the idea of spending

three months at sea,

0:12:090:12:12

battling 30ft waves,

all alone in a tiny

0:12:120:12:14

rowing boat sound?

0:12:140:12:15

Doesn't appeal?

0:12:150:12:18

Well for one former Royal Marine

from Devon those are the challenges

0:12:180:12:21

he'll face next year as he attempts

to become the first physically

0:12:210:12:24

disabled person to row solo

and unsupported from Europe to South

0:12:240:12:27

America.

0:12:270:12:29

Lee Spencer - who lost his right

leg in a freak accident

0:12:290:12:34

aims to leave Gibraltar in January:

all being well he'll reach Venezuela

0:12:340:12:38

some 3,500 miles later.

0:12:380:12:40

It's a massive challenge,

but as John Henderson reports,

0:12:400:12:42

Lee has form when it comes to rowing

across the Atlantic.

0:12:420:12:52

I need to get as fit as I can be, as

strong as I can be and as fat as I

0:12:520:12:59

can be. I'm doing that one well!

Because in January Lee Spencer will

0:12:590:13:05

be leaving his Devon driveway to row

across the Atlantic on this. A seven

0:13:050:13:11

metre long boat.

If you go that

side.

It fills a bit unstable. But

0:13:110:13:19

the former Royal Moraine hopes to

roll into the record books.

I'm the

0:13:190:13:26

first physically disabled person to

row from Europe to mainland South

0:13:260:13:34

America and the second one is want

to break the able-bodied record.

Lee

0:13:340:13:37

has form when it comes to rowing

oceans. He was part of the four-man

0:13:370:13:40

legless boat that became the first

all amputees crew to make it across

0:13:400:13:45

the Atlantic. Lee lost his right leg

when he was hit by debris as he

0:13:450:13:49

helped at a car accident. His solo

row is about changing perceptions

0:13:490:13:56

around disabilities.

It is only when

I was rowing last time that I

0:13:560:14:00

realised that and still the same

person, nothing has changed.

Lee

0:14:000:14:04

will spend up to 18 hours a day on

the oars. There are six in case they

0:14:040:14:09

snap go overboard. He will shelter

from wild weather in a cosy capping.

0:14:090:14:15

His food with vacuum packed and his

toilet is a bucket.

I suppose having

0:14:150:14:21

road before, I kind of know I can do

it. But so low, thousands of miles

0:14:210:14:30

away, if anybody knows what going it

alone is like, it's this man. John

0:14:300:14:36

rode across the Atlantic 20 years

ago.

It was fantastic to have that

0:14:360:14:41

space and be in the middle of the

Atlantic with no wind whatsoever. It

0:14:410:14:45

was calm and I could see hundreds of

miles in every direction, five

0:14:450:14:50

kilometres deep, it was my own

private swimming pool.

And like

0:14:500:15:00

before, Lee will be jumping into the

Atlantic to take a dip and clean his

0:15:000:15:03

boat.

It will be a little bit more

scary on my own but I'm looking

0:15:030:15:06

forward to it.

It'll be raising

money for two charities that help

0:15:060:15:10

service men and women but aware that

rowing across the Atlantic solo is

0:15:100:15:13

something else.

If the ocean says

not you, not today, there's nothing

0:15:130:15:15

you can do about it.

But who bet

against the rowing Marines making

0:15:150:15:21

history on the high seas.

Incredible.

0:15:210:15:26

A Somerset veteran of World War two

is doing all he can to make sure

0:15:260:15:30

the sacrifices of his generation

are never forgotten.

0:15:300:15:31

At 94, Stan Tooze braves

all weathers to sell poppies.

0:15:310:15:34

And he has no intention

of stopping any time soon.

0:15:340:15:36

Clinton Rogers has been to meet him.

0:15:360:15:46

According to Stan, a hat is all you

need, even if it did drop below

0:15:460:15:50

freezing last night. Nothing deters

this 94-year-old war veteran from

0:15:500:15:55

his outdoor dayshift. And so on duty

as the years most days in the

0:15:550:16:04

Taunton supermarket.

No, I don't

feel the cold. I'm too young for

0:16:040:16:07

that!

I'd like to know what your

muscles are.

Just the Second World

0:16:070:16:15

War.

Modest as well but always the

main attraction here.

He gives is

0:16:150:16:22

100% support, he is therefore

everything come sunshine, or rain,

0:16:220:16:28

he's always there.

Stan was part of

the sixth airborne division of the

0:16:280:16:36

Parachute division. He saw active

service in Belgium towards the end

0:16:360:16:39

of the Second World War. Inevitably,

their memories are still vivid.

One

0:16:390:16:45

day my mate was there one second on

the next thing he was knocked down

0:16:450:16:51

dead. I was still left.

It is why he

feels a duty to help raise money for

0:16:510:17:02

the Royal British Legion, to honour

the memory of his fallen colleagues.

0:17:020:17:05

How long do you think you will carry

on selling the poppies?

And 94. Get

0:17:050:17:14

another six years!

At the very least

I'd say. And I don't doubt it for a

0:17:140:17:22

minute, what a great man. I love the

line that is too young to feel the

0:17:220:17:27

cold. Now, I wonder what he would

make of this?

0:17:270:17:30

Could this be the shortest

stretch of double yellow

0:17:300:17:32

lines in the country...?

0:17:320:17:33

At just two feet long the freshly

painted markings in Hayle are barely

0:17:330:17:36

the length of a pram.

0:17:360:17:37

Cornwall Council says contractors

who'd been digging up the road

0:17:370:17:40

were simply replacing the existing

yellow lines - which as you can see,

0:17:400:17:43

were rather faded.

0:17:430:17:48

You might remember earlier this week

on Spotlight we featured Exeter

0:17:480:17:51

animator Ashley Thorpe

and his feature-length horror film.

0:17:510:17:54

Well it's won an award in New York.

0:17:540:17:57

Borley Rectory picked up

Best Animated Feature Film

0:17:570:17:59

at the Buffalo Dreams film festival

- which champions

0:17:590:18:01

independent movies.

0:18:010:18:04

The spooky film tells the tale

of a haunted house in Essex.

0:18:040:18:12

When the Countess of Wessex agreed

to come to Devon to help celebrate

0:18:120:18:15

the region's agricultural industry

she probably didn't expect to come

0:18:150:18:17

face to face with pink sheep.

0:18:170:18:22

Who would?

0:18:220:18:23

Who would?

0:18:230:18:24

But that's exactly what she

encountered at Agrifest today,

0:18:240:18:26

a major farming show

at Westpoint next Exeter.

0:18:260:18:28

And as Chloe Axford discovered

the brightly coloured sheep didn't

0:18:280:18:31

phase the royal visitor.

0:18:310:18:34

I don't get to go to many farming

chosen when I was told I was coming

0:18:340:18:39

here today I was a bit worried that

I might not be dressed quite right

0:18:390:18:42

for a day with livestock. But it

turns out I'm wearing exactly the

0:18:420:18:45

right colour. That's because today

is less how now Brown cow and more

0:18:450:18:53

hello, pink sheep. These died in the

wall use are due to be auctioned off

0:18:530:18:57

a cancer charity. So you are the

pink sheep expert. To the animal 's

0:18:570:19:02

mind?

Well, I didn't because she got

lots of attention and cuddles and

0:19:020:19:06

stuff so she loved it.

Research out

this week claim sheep can recognise

0:19:060:19:14

celebrities. So will recognise this

one? The Duchess of Wessex is

0:19:140:19:20

visiting as patron of a charity and

as much as you like the sheep she

0:19:200:19:24

wasn't tempted to take them home.

I'm not sure my husband would fight

0:19:240:19:28

me for that one. It's a wonderful

way of showing support for a charity

0:19:280:19:33

and I think it's a bit of fun.

Pink

sheep aside, this is big business

0:19:330:19:39

and those competing taken extremely

seriously. That's because a win here

0:19:390:19:44

can push the animal's Valley

write-up.

Is big competition and

0:19:440:19:49

obviously you want to make the best

of your animal, so you do the best

0:19:490:19:52

to bring it out and try and beat the

opposition.

Is it quite cut-throat?

0:19:520:19:58

Sky yes, it can be. Right, so time

to find out how to beat the

0:19:580:20:06

opposition. So this is your cow.

He's about to go in the Ring Fish

0:20:060:20:13

show so can you tell me what you are

doing?

And brushing up so he'll be

0:20:130:20:16

fluffy and prepped up for the judge

to look like he has been prepped.

0:20:160:20:21

Once in the ring, the cow came third

and, yes, I do know he is a steer

0:20:210:20:26

and not a cow. But now for the

auction everyone has been waiting

0:20:260:20:31

for. £2200 for a pink sheep, what a

bargain. I'm tempted to put a bid in

0:20:310:20:40

myself, I could do with a new

woollen jumper. BBC Spotlight, West

0:20:400:20:45

point. Lovely! Very well sprayed on,

isn't it?

0:20:450:20:50

Very well sprayed on, isn't it?

0:20:500:20:52

When staff at a residential care

home asked Lizzie Picken how she'd

0:20:520:20:55

like to celebrate her hundredth

birthday she told them

0:20:550:20:57

she wanted 100 birthday cards.

0:20:570:20:58

Well after Lizzie's request

was shared on social media more

0:20:580:21:01

than 1,000 were posted to her.

0:21:010:21:05

Today, as she celebrated her

centenary she was presented

0:21:050:21:07

with them which included one

from the Queen.

0:21:070:21:09

John Danks reports.

0:21:090:21:15

The morning post arrives and it's

all for one person.

Hello,

0:21:150:21:22

congratulations!

Thank you.

Lizzie

Pickering, 100 years old today.

It's

0:21:220:21:30

wonderful it's like being the Queen

Birthday!

Around 300 birthday cards

0:21:300:21:36

arrived for today including one the

real Queen.

Oh my goodness me!

What

0:21:360:21:41

she didn't know is that hundreds

more had already been delivered.

I

0:21:410:21:47

cannot believe it! I don't know that

many people!

All this from an appeal

0:21:470:21:55

for cards that staff put on social

media to help Lizzie celebrate her

0:21:550:21:59

big day. Alan Mak it just went

viral, everyone started commenting

0:21:590:22:05

and retweet in it and reposting

everywhere.

Every started saying

0:22:050:22:09

lovely, can I send a card? Then we

had children writing cards. Lizzie

0:22:090:22:15

was just so excited about the whole

situation. She thought it would be

0:22:150:22:19

absolutely hysterical to get this

many cards but busy we never

0:22:190:22:23

expected to many.

Well, I couldn't

-- I could have wept with joy

0:22:230:22:29

because everyone has been so kind.

I'm quite overwhelmed with it.

0:22:290:22:41

Lizzie never married nor had

children. Her older sister is 103

0:22:410:22:46

but wasn't able to travel down from

Birmingham where she lives. Two of

0:22:460:22:50

her oldest friends from her time as

a midwife in Plymouth was there

0:22:500:22:54

today.

Something I didn't expect

that it's fantastic.

I would say the

0:22:540:23:01

same because we've known each other

for a very long time and each

0:23:010:23:06

birthday, we think will this be the

last one? Here we are, we've got to

0:23:060:23:10

100 and still going strong.

Now with

more than a thousand cards from all

0:23:100:23:15

over the world, she's going to be

busy Lizzie.

Al never get through

0:23:150:23:19

them! And have to an extra year!

BBC

Spotlight, Plymouth. What a lovely

0:23:190:23:30

story. And, Lizzie, to wish you a

very happy birthday. And if you

0:23:300:23:34

plough through all those cards you

should find one from all of us on

0:23:340:23:38

the Spotlight team at some point. I

hope you've had a lovely day. Yes,

0:23:380:23:43

happy birthday. Now, onto the

weather forecast. It was a gorgeous

0:23:430:23:46

morning gorgeous morning this

morning implement.

0:23:460:23:48

What a lovely... It's all change for

tomorrow and Fred. It was quite a

0:23:480:23:55

cold start for many of us today,

some frost around. Also some mist

0:23:550:24:00

spots. This one caught on the way to

Tavistock.

0:24:000:24:04

spots. This one caught on the way to

Tavistock. But it's it is up for a

0:24:040:24:05

fine and dry day with plenty of

sunshine around. We can take a look

0:24:050:24:09

at some pictures from earlier today.

This was taken from a drone operator

0:24:090:24:14

who has been to Lyme Bay today. Some

good spells of sunshine, blue skies

0:24:140:24:19

from many others, the sea has become

a bit calmer as well as the day has

0:24:190:24:24

gone on. Still have that westerly

wind with as though so it has been

0:24:240:24:29

feeling on the cool side but the

sunshine making up for that,

0:24:290:24:32

becoming milder for tomorrow. If we

take a look at tomorrow's outlook

0:24:320:24:36

then I'm afraid it's a lot cloudier,

some hillfort and brain injuries and

0:24:360:24:42

around overnight and into the

morning. We should see it clearing

0:24:420:24:46

some parts for some sunny spells to

develop but nothing like the

0:24:460:24:49

sunshine we have seen today. You can

see will the sunshine in a cloud

0:24:490:24:54

sandwich today. This has been a

clear spot thanks to a ridge of high

0:24:540:24:59

pressure that has been building in

for today. But it is short lived and

0:24:590:25:04

is retreating now allowing weather

fronts to move in. Further weather

0:25:040:25:07

fronts around the edge of this high

pressure coming in for Friday and

0:25:070:25:11

indeed as we head into the weekend.

Will see further outbreaks of rain

0:25:110:25:15

on Friday and to start the day on

Saturday. Also will start to see the

0:25:150:25:19

wind is picking up. You can see by

Saturday those isobars are quite

0:25:190:25:23

tight together. A breezy day to

start those winds coming in from a

0:25:230:25:31

northerly direction so it will feel

on the chilly side into the weekend.

0:25:310:25:34

Temperatures of 9-10 Celsius by

Sunday. Today though the cloud is

0:25:340:25:37

hung on in the south-west of the

country. For most of the day it is

0:25:370:25:42

being clear skies, a bit more cloud

pushing in through tonight. Through

0:25:420:25:45

the night will continue to see that

Bush the north and north and west

0:25:450:25:49

and thickening North... Mainly rain

and drizzle around overnight. A cold

0:25:490:25:56

start to the night in eastern areas,

with temperatures dropping to want.

0:25:560:26:02

As the cloud pushes in, the

temperatures will pick up again

0:26:020:26:05

through the night. Mild start

tomorrow, more than today. Still

0:26:050:26:09

some outbreaks of rain and light

drizzle. Into the afternoon, we will

0:26:090:26:13

see that cloud breaking a bit to

allow some sunny spells in for some

0:26:130:26:18

of us. Most of those showers

clearing. The wind so coming from

0:26:180:26:24

the North west, moderate.

Temperatures up from today. A high

0:26:240:26:29

of 13-14 Celsius. Looking at the

Isles of Scilly, rather cloudy here.

0:26:290:26:34

Some brightness coming through

particularly into the afternoon, the

0:26:340:26:36

chance of some showers around

though. High waterfall Bideford

0:26:360:26:42

tomorrow... The waters forecast

seasonal north-westerly four or five

0:26:420:26:53

picking up later with occasional

drizzle and generally moderate or

0:26:530:26:57

good visibility except any rain

showers. Our outlook then as we go

0:26:570:27:02

towards the weekend sees cloud

around on Friday. Some outbreaks of

0:27:020:27:05

rain through the morning, perhaps

brightness coming through the middle

0:27:050:27:09

part of the day before a heavier

band of rain in the evening. This

0:27:090:27:14

weather front brings further rain

perhaps on Saturday. But coming dry

0:27:140:27:18

and brighter as Saturday goes on. By

Sunday it will be a lot cooler,

0:27:180:27:25

temperatures are 9-10 degrees. Sunny

spells around but also heavy showers

0:27:250:27:28

at times. That's it from me, have a

good evening.

0:27:280:27:32

at times. That's it from me, have a

good evening. That's all from the

0:27:320:27:36

team here. Thank you for all of your

e-mails on our top story tonight, we

0:27:360:27:40

will try and include some of them on

the programme is an tomorrow. From

0:27:400:27:43

others here, good night. -- from all

others here, good
