:00:11.:00:14.

top story tonight, the paedophile who deceived charities so he could

:00:14.:00:23.

abuse boys. He used to betas and offer us chocolate. And then he

:00:23.:00:26.

would say nothing had happened afterwards.

:00:26.:00:33.

Also tonight, Bomardier's lost contract, how the Government spent

:00:33.:00:38.

millions on consultant. Plus these East Midlands soldiers

:00:38.:00:41.

risking their lives to train the Afghan army.

Good evening. Welcome to Tuesday's programme. First tonight, a special

:01:00.:01:03.

investigation by the BBC's Inside Out has revealed how a paedophile

:01:03.:01:07.

deceived charities to gain access to vulnerable children. Former

:01:07.:01:10.

headteacher Derek Slade from Mickleover in Derby is now serving

:01:10.:01:13.

a 21-year sentence for abusing boys at a boarding school between 1978

:01:13.:01:20.

and 1983. Back then, alarm bells about his behaviour had been rung

:01:20.:01:26.

in a BBC programme for Radio 4 with investigative reporter Roger Cook.

:01:26.:01:30.

But, as Roger now reports, Slade went on to abuse boys in India at a

:01:30.:01:40.
:01:40.:01:42.

school paid for by a Leicester When Derek Slade was finally

:01:42.:01:45.

convicted of child abuse, his victims had become grown men. They

:01:45.:01:51.

are still living with the legacy of that abuse. I tried to commit

:01:51.:01:57.

suicide within six months of leaving school. I am a loner.

:01:57.:02:02.

Several failed relationships. I have tried time and time again.

:02:02.:02:09.

Back in 1982, the BBC Radio 4 check point programme had exposed Derek

:02:09.:02:14.

Slade's reign of terror with the help of some pupils and staff.

:02:14.:02:20.

pupils made to swap clothes. whole of his backside was covered

:02:20.:02:27.

in bruises. They were every colour. Even though the sexual abuse

:02:27.:02:32.

remains covered up, it made national headlines and he resigned

:02:32.:02:39.

later on. Further accusations made access to children difficult for

:02:39.:02:43.

him so Slade took on a false identity. Years later, he launched

:02:43.:02:46.

an organisation called International British education

:02:46.:02:49.

projects and then exploited his connections to abuse more children

:02:50.:02:55.

at more schools abroad including this school in India, funded by a

:02:55.:03:01.

Leicester charity. We tracked down some of their's victims. How many

:03:01.:03:08.

of you were beaten by a Slade? All of you? He used to beat us every

:03:08.:03:12.

Sunday. He used to beat us and then take notice and then offered

:03:12.:03:15.

chocolate. He would review afterwards and say nothing had

:03:15.:03:22.

happened. -- he would rob you afterwards. Much of the school was

:03:22.:03:27.

paid for by the Leicester Gujarat earthquake Relief Fund. Another

:03:27.:03:35.

charity also gave Slade funds. He was given a glowing account of

:03:35.:03:38.

children across the world and they admit they did not check his

:03:38.:03:43.

credentials. In all our lives, we make mistakes and this was a very

:03:43.:03:50.

grave mistake that made me think that if I was to pass by this ever

:03:50.:03:55.

again, I would never do this again. So how was he caught and convicted?

:03:55.:03:58.

The full story in a special 30 minute programme they did tonight.

:03:58.:04:03.

And that programmes, An Abuse Of Trust, goes out on BBC One at

:04:03.:04:08.

10:35pm. Next tonight, the soldiers from

:04:08.:04:11.

Leicestershire and Derbyshire who are now playing a crucial role in

:04:11.:04:16.

Britain's exit strategy from Afghanistan. The 9th/12th Royal

:04:16.:04:18.

Lancers are fighting and patrolling alongside Afghan troops in Helmand

:04:18.:04:21.

province. They'll be in charge of security when British forces

:04:21.:04:23.

finally come home. Our social affairs correspondent, Jeremy Ball,

:04:23.:04:33.
:04:33.:04:34.

Afghan tours are less about fighting a war and trying to win

:04:34.:04:44.
:04:44.:04:44.

BP's. This is a tank regiment patrolling on foot. The Royal

:04:44.:04:49.

Lancers are working with soldiers from Afghan's National Army,

:04:49.:04:53.

helping them to do skills on their own. We are using interpreters but

:04:53.:04:56.

it is a bit of a struggle but they seem to be picking up on everything

:04:57.:05:00.

we are teaching them so it seems to be be getting better for them.

:05:00.:05:05.

are letting them lead the patrols to the Afghan locals concede that

:05:05.:05:08.

the Afghan national army are doing it for themselves and hopefully

:05:08.:05:12.

take over. Some East Midlands soldiers are running high where

:05:12.:05:18.

patrols protecting Afghanistan's busiest roads, that makes them a

:05:18.:05:22.

prime target. This was one of several improvised bomb was

:05:22.:05:28.

discovered and last week, Paul Watkins was shot dead on patrol. It

:05:28.:05:32.

is being investigated whether his killer was wearing an Afghan

:05:32.:05:35.

National Army uniform. This is how they were training just before

:05:35.:05:39.

their deployment and now almost all of them have been in real firefight.

:05:39.:05:45.

We have had come to that with insurgents which lasted about

:05:45.:05:49.

around five hours. That was my first small arms contact, quite a

:05:49.:05:53.

surreal feeling. These love hearts on local taxes are pretty surreal

:05:53.:05:59.

as well. In a place where peace is still a long way off. Where the

:05:59.:06:02.

Royal Lancers are keeping this part of Helmand province open for

:06:02.:06:05.

business. It's emerged today that millions of

:06:05.:06:08.

pounds of public money was spent on private consultants as part of the

:06:08.:06:10.

Thameslink train deal that's left Derby's train-making industry

:06:10.:06:15.

fighting for its life. It's feared that Britain's last train-builder,

:06:15.:06:18.

Bombardier, could close after the loss of the Thameslink deal to a

:06:18.:06:25.

rival firm, Siemens. The trains will now be made in Germany. To

:06:25.:06:27.

tell us more, our reporter Simon Hare joins us from Bombardier's

:06:27.:06:37.
:06:37.:06:40.

Good evening. Bombardier front page news again today, this is the Daily

:06:40.:06:45.

Mirror talking about 15 million Train robbers in relation to the

:06:45.:06:48.

amount of money the Government is said to have paid to private

:06:48.:06:56.

consultants to advise it on the awarding of that lucrative

:06:56.:07:00.

Thameslink contract. Somebody else says that �20 million of public

:07:00.:07:04.

money could also be spent. I am joined by the Derby North MP, Chris

:07:04.:07:09.

Williamson. It sounds like a lot of money but it is only 1% of this

:07:09.:07:13.

very lucrative contract, isn't it? Surely the Government should get

:07:13.:07:17.

the best advice it can? In to a huge sum of money and one thing

:07:17.:07:21.

that is a kick in the teeth to the Bombardier workforce is that these

:07:21.:07:24.

are consultants and have been working on how to give away the

:07:24.:07:30.

last train manufacturing factory in the UK. His inability to build

:07:30.:07:34.

trains, if this decision is not reversed, will be gone for it.

:07:34.:07:38.

of the money was spent apparently by the previous government, the

:07:38.:07:47.

Labour government will stop I am afraid that is a. I am afraid that

:07:47.:07:53.

is a rather pathetic smokescreen. The outcome is disastrous. If the

:07:53.:07:56.

Government does not do the right thing. Rolls-Royce went bust 40

:07:56.:08:00.

years ago and the Government did the right thing and saved it. It is

:08:00.:08:05.

now an icon. It can be the same for Bombardier. This is a centre of

:08:05.:08:09.

rail technology excellence and it is vital to the sector in this

:08:09.:08:13.

country for the Government to reverse its decision. Thank you for

:08:13.:08:23.
:08:23.:08:34.

your time. From Bombardier, back to A man who allegedly conned Peter

:08:34.:08:37.

A man who allegedly conned Derbyshire pub landlords out of

:08:37.:08:40.

thousands of pounds is on a list of the ten most wanted suspected

:08:40.:08:43.

fraudsters in the UK. Peter Stead is accused of posing as an

:08:43.:08:46.

entertainer and the brother of Peter Kay. He offered to put on a

:08:46.:08:49.

comedy night to raise money for Lewis Mighty, a youngster suffering

:08:49.:08:52.

from cancer. His family want to take him to America for specialist

:08:52.:08:54.

treatment. Stead was allegedly given cash to secure bookings but

:08:54.:08:57.

failed to turn up to perform. The car-marker Toyota has announced

:08:57.:09:00.

a dramatic fall in profits and has plunged into the red. The Japanese

:09:00.:09:03.

company, which has a factory at Burnaston in Derbyshire, says net

:09:03.:09:07.

profit fell by 99% in the three months to June. It made a loss of

:09:07.:09:09.

just under $1.5 billion. It's blamed the earthquake and tsunami

:09:09.:09:13.

in March for a fall in sales. But it predicts sales will rise over

:09:13.:09:15.

the coming year. Next, the museum shut by council

:09:15.:09:18.

cuts that could be re-opened by local people. Grantham Museum

:09:18.:09:20.

closed its doors when Lincolnshire County Council decided it was no

:09:20.:09:24.

longer viable. Now volunteers have committed themselves to re-opening

:09:24.:09:33.

the museum in June next year. Geoff Getting to grips with the scale of

:09:33.:09:37.

the task, these volunteers are among 200 people who have come

:09:37.:09:41.

forward to save Grantham Museum. Anybody across the East Midlands

:09:41.:09:44.

will know what it is like to be involved in voluntary organisations

:09:44.:09:48.

but let's not forget the great work being done for generations by

:09:48.:09:52.

people coming together with a common aim which is not necessary

:09:52.:09:56.

for personal profit. For the Diamond Jubilee weekend this week

:09:56.:10:02.

next year, it will be open again. �30,000 had been pledged to upgrade

:10:02.:10:05.

the building but the district council is offering volunteers a

:10:05.:10:08.

deal on the rent. Were it was founded 100 years ago,

:10:08.:10:13.

Grantham Museum was that set up by volunteers like Henry Preston here

:10:13.:10:17.

he used to run the water works. The charge for contemporary as it had

:10:17.:10:20.

to make this museum modern, interesting and relevant but still

:10:20.:10:25.

pay the bills. I still perceive it as taking on something that I am

:10:25.:10:31.

passionate about, having something in the community. I do not want it

:10:31.:10:36.

to go. We have got plans for a shop to make it successful, we want to

:10:36.:10:41.

get corporate sponsors and have a scheme for friends of the museum so

:10:41.:10:47.

a whole set of plans to raise the profile of the museum. Every member

:10:47.:10:50.

of the group here and all the other volunteers have a different room,

:10:50.:10:55.

we have got to try somehow to get them close together so they can

:10:55.:11:01.

work together a. Are the home of Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher,

:11:01.:11:08.

cramp and certainly has a story to tell, and the Iron Lady has a story

:11:08.:11:14.

to tell. If we can manage the funding carefully and well, we will

:11:14.:11:20.

reap the rewards without some of the costs back go into local

:11:20.:11:23.

authorities and big organisations getting involved. The museum is due

:11:23.:11:27.

to open its doors next June to coincide with the Diamond Jubilee

:11:27.:11:32.

Wildlife experts at the Attenborough Nature Reserve near

:11:32.:11:34.

Nottingham are warning blackberry pickers to be extra careful when

:11:34.:11:39.

rummaging for fruit. This year, the berries have ripened much earlier

:11:39.:11:41.

than usual, coinciding with the bird breeding season. Geeta Pendse

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:11:53.

For many, blackberry picking is a highlight at the end of the summer.

:11:53.:11:57.

But this year in some places, the fruits have ripened much earlier.

:11:57.:12:01.

And as visitors flocked to Attenborough Nature Reserve in

:12:01.:12:04.

Nottingham, some staff say that because are disturbing the nests of

:12:04.:12:08.

young chicks without realising. As well as a source of food, these

:12:08.:12:13.

brambles are prime locations for birds to nest. Partly because these

:12:13.:12:16.

groups are forming and uninviting to predators like crows and weasels

:12:16.:12:21.

but people walking through, it is also exposing their nests. Last

:12:21.:12:31.
:12:31.:12:34.

week, staff were exposed to this nest which was left empty.

:12:34.:12:37.

chicks have been eaten by a predator which may not have seen

:12:37.:12:41.

the nest otherwise or been able to access it because of the thick

:12:41.:12:44.

vegetation. The main problem is that the berries have ripened at

:12:44.:12:50.

the same time as the bird's breeding season. People are being

:12:50.:12:54.

warned to stick to the paths and not wade through vegetation. It

:12:54.:12:58.

seems in many cases, visitors were unaware of the problem. I was very

:12:58.:13:02.

surprised because I thought they had flown the nest by now. It is

:13:02.:13:05.

not something that one would normally think about. I should be

:13:05.:13:09.

aware of this. People have obviously gone right into the

:13:09.:13:13.

bushes at the back so we are trying to stay across the border here and

:13:13.:13:17.

not tried to go into them too much. Staff hope that people continue to

:13:17.:13:24.

enjoy the berries were the -- while the sun is out but hope people take

:13:24.:13:27.

care of the wildlife as well. Nottinghamshire's fire authority is

:13:27.:13:32.

consulting on plans to radically change the way the service is run.

:13:32.:13:35.

More than �6 million needs to be cut from its budget over the next

:13:35.:13:39.

four years. Up to 80 part-time firefighters may go, and some

:13:39.:13:41.

traditional fire engines could be replaced with smaller fast response

:13:41.:13:47.

vehicles. The consultation will last 12 weeks.

:13:47.:13:50.

The sister of a soldier who was killed serving in Afghanistan has

:13:50.:13:54.

completed a sponsored skydive in his memory. Lance Corporal Liam

:13:54.:13:57.

Tasker was a dog handler and had been based at Melton Mowbray before

:13:57.:14:02.

being deployed. He was shot dead while on patrol in Helmand province

:14:02.:14:08.

in March. His sister Laura and her friend Emma Rushton are hoping to

:14:08.:14:11.

have raised thousands of pounds for the armed forces charity Help For

:14:11.:14:16.

Heroes. It's the first in our new series

:14:16.:14:19.

Historic Holmes, looking at the industrial legacy of the East

:14:19.:14:24.

Midlands with John Holmes. This week he explores the uprising of

:14:24.:14:28.

the Luddites who targeted knitting frames. A protest against

:14:28.:14:38.
:14:38.:14:48.

mechanisation which began in The year is 1817 and here in the

:14:48.:14:52.

Galleries of Justice, 21-year-old Daniel Biggar will is about to be

:14:52.:14:56.

sentenced to death for attempted murder. His hanging sounded the

:14:56.:15:04.

death-knell of the Luddite uprising It is hard to believe that our

:15:04.:15:09.

story begins with a simple domestic seen here in Calverton. A local

:15:09.:15:13.

Rector was in love with a man who was in love with knitting and so he

:15:13.:15:19.

tried to impress her with a knitting machine that spared the

:15:19.:15:24.

whole process up. It caused a revolution when it caught on. After

:15:24.:15:28.

a series of bad harvests and the war with France, the four of loss

:15:28.:15:34.

of jobs and starvation was the last straw. 200 years ago here in

:15:34.:15:39.

Nottingham, the No 10s' frustration erupted a revolution of frame

:15:39.:15:43.

smashing which started in Arnold West 60 frames were destroyed in

:15:43.:15:48.

one night. Support was strong. The authorities could not find out who

:15:48.:15:56.

did it. The writers published a declaration. An address in Sherwood

:15:56.:16:02.

Forest, Ned at large. He did not exist but 30 years earlier somebody

:16:02.:16:11.

had smashed up two machines. He became known as the patron of the

:16:11.:16:21.
:16:21.:16:22.

Luddite. The response was to make frame breaking a capital offence.

:16:22.:16:26.

They were never against technology, they claimed the frames were

:16:26.:16:35.

turning out an inferior garment. The legacy? The Luddite sadly means

:16:35.:16:41.

someone who opposes technology, not somebody who embrace his

:16:41.:16:51.
:16:51.:16:51.

It is scary seeing John Holmes with a sledge hammer in his hands!

:16:51.:16:54.

Still to come on the programme, that brooch. Its owner almost sold

:16:54.:16:58.

it for a tenner. Its guide price at auction was �10,000. So what did it

:16:58.:17:08.
:17:08.:17:15.

We know the answer but we will not tell you. Somebody told me anyway.

:17:15.:17:19.

Time for the sport. Nottingham Forest's manager Steve

:17:19.:17:22.

McClaren says there's still a lot of work to do. It was team photo

:17:23.:17:26.

day at the City Ground, but there aren't enough new players for

:17:26.:17:28.

McClaren's liking. He made his thoughts clear to BBC Radio

:17:28.:17:37.

Nottingham. We are still not at this stage where I would say the

:17:37.:17:43.

squad is complete. We are ready with our squad for the rest of the

:17:43.:17:47.

season. There's are still what I feel is a lot of work to be done

:17:47.:17:50.

off the field for. Derby County have signed the

:17:50.:17:52.

Republic of Ireland international Kevin Kilbane from Hull City. The

:17:52.:17:55.

34-year-old joins on a six-month loan. He can play both midfield and

:17:55.:17:58.

fullback and will play in tomorrow's friendly with Aston

:17:58.:18:02.

Villa. It's the same time every year, so I

:18:02.:18:05.

don't know why the start of the football season comes as a surprise.

:18:05.:18:11.

But it does, and it's this Saturday. So, it must be the week to look

:18:12.:18:14.

ahead for all our football clubs, Derby, Forest and Leicester, over

:18:14.:18:17.

the next couple of days. But tonight it's Notts County, where

:18:17.:18:24.

manager Martin Allen is outlining a clear philosophy. I want people to

:18:24.:18:34.
:18:34.:18:43.

be happy. Award our players to be # Happy days. # Ready to race to #.

:18:43.:18:53.
:18:53.:18:54.

We will compete to get the ball back if we do not have it. When we

:18:54.:18:59.

score, we will love it. And the club for everybody who pays for a

:18:59.:19:03.

ticket. Everybody who has the privilege of playing for Notts

:19:03.:19:09.

County will be happy. Making it Notts County happy has a lot of

:19:09.:19:12.

players to do with places like this, a lot of time and energy spent in

:19:12.:19:17.

making it look that much more professional. If you're a fan, the

:19:17.:19:20.

improvement that would really cheer you up would be one that happened

:19:20.:19:30.
:19:30.:19:31.

here, on the pitch. Money, all his money. Football clubs are like pack

:19:31.:19:36.

men who eat away at it. Cash required to pay the new and old

:19:36.:19:40.

players' wages so what about them? Have they bought into the whole

:19:40.:19:45.

Happy Days philosophy? When you are on your knees, it is hard to put a

:19:45.:19:48.

smile on your face but we have got some great characters and the

:19:48.:19:53.

gaffer has got his own take on things. He is fantastic. It has

:19:53.:20:02.

been good and the Boys Are Back, he has gutted the way he wants it.

:20:02.:20:06.

should win every game, full houses every week, I will be the happiest

:20:06.:20:16.
:20:16.:20:16.

man in the well. # These happy days In rugby, two Leicester Tigers

:20:16.:20:19.

players have had their World Cup hopes ended. Hooker George Chuter

:20:19.:20:22.

and number eight Thomas Waldrom have been released from the England

:20:22.:20:24.

training squad. Away from the heady heights of Test

:20:24.:20:26.

cricket, two county games started today. Durham opener Michael Di

:20:26.:20:29.

Venuto has been the stand-out player on Day One of Notts' visit

:20:29.:20:35.

to the Riverside. Meanwhile, honours even so far in the wooden

:20:35.:20:38.

spoon clash at Grace Road. But at least Leicestershire's James Taylor

:20:38.:20:42.

is pressing for a full England Test place. An excellent 76 for England

:20:42.:20:49.

Lions. Fifties for the Notts pair Alex Hales and Samit Patel too.

:20:49.:20:52.

Next to a new cult hero. Nottinghamshire's Scott Elstone has

:20:52.:20:57.

never played a first class cricket match. But he found himself

:20:57.:20:59.

fielding for England at Trent Bridge yesterday. The game ended

:20:59.:21:02.

with him being cheered every time he touched the ball. And he

:21:02.:21:05.

received a modern day accolade too. He was trending on Twitter. Mark

When millions are watching on television, nobody wants a catch

like this but he had never played championship cricket, how much to

:21:18.:21:24.

be feeling? At first, or between nerves. A run at it as quick as I

:21:24.:21:28.

could and relief when I got it in my hands. After that, he developed

:21:28.:21:34.

a fan club. Absolutely, I would not call myself a hero but certainly

:21:34.:21:38.

the cheers were a very good experience. A substitute in cricket

:21:38.:21:42.

is not the 12 best player, they are not allowed to bat or ball and

:21:42.:21:46.

unlikely to be able to field in a specialist catching position. What

they tend to be for England is open coming cricketers who are dynamite

expected to take every chance -- coming on as a 12th man. But he is

experience. He looks like a good fielder, so it is nice to have him

:22:23.:22:27.

there. It was not all a fairy-tale, he dropped this very difficult

:22:27.:22:31.

chance. A couple of the senior England players said don't worry

:22:31.:22:35.

about it, concentrate on the next one. His date finished in triumph

:22:35.:22:44.

but only just with the second catch. Absolute relief when it went in. It

:22:44.:22:48.

was just relief, I have just been very, very lucky and I thank the

:22:48.:22:52.

people who have supported me up until now with what I have been

:22:52.:22:58.

doing, so thank you. Trust me, the Nottinghamshire dressing room will

bring him back down to earth but it will take a while.

:23:01.:23:04.

Fantastic. Finally an update from last night's

:23:04.:23:06.

programme. The forgotten brooch which turned out to be a treasured

:23:06.:23:12.

collectable sold at auction today for an astonishing �31,000. Jill

:23:12.:23:15.

Cousins was two days away from selling the brooch for a tenner at

:23:15.:23:18.

a local antiques market when experts told her just how valuable

:23:18.:23:21.

it really was. She decided to sell it and today is much the richer.

:23:21.:23:31.
:23:31.:23:40.

Something close to �10,000. Oh, my God! Oh crikey! TV gold, the moment

:23:40.:23:43.

Jill Cousins found that just how valuable her forgotten broached

:23:43.:23:48.

really was. The brooch by the Victorian designer and architect

:23:48.:23:54.

William Burgess was featured on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow. When

:23:54.:24:00.

jewellery experts called it his most wanted item. Gill, from Market

:24:00.:24:05.

Harborough, realised she had it went she went back onto the show

:24:05.:24:09.

and said that instead of selling it for �10 at an antiques fair as she

:24:09.:24:13.

had planned to, she could get around �10,000 for it. And more

:24:13.:24:18.

surprises came today when it actually ended up selling for

:24:19.:24:28.
:24:29.:24:33.

�31,000 at auction in Exciting wasn't quite the word! If

:24:33.:24:38.

I had been at home in private, I would have been jumping up and down

:24:38.:24:43.

screaming but it is not bad at all, it was very exciting. Wonderful.

:24:43.:24:49.

Two rival bidders helped to push the price up, much to her surprise.

:24:49.:24:53.

I actually did not think it would sell. I was convinced it would not

:24:53.:24:58.

and I was making sure I was not too disappointed but certainly never

:24:58.:25:05.

expected this. It is... Out Of This World, just wonderful. So the moral

:25:05.:25:09.

of the story is make sure you have a rummage through your trinkets

:25:09.:25:19.
:25:19.:25:23.

because you never know what hidden I shall check my hand by! --

:25:23.:25:33.

Another hot and sticky day to day across the East Midlands and it has

his picture was captured by Graham from Rutland, so thank you for that.

:25:44.:25:49.

It must have been hot working out there. We will stay hot and humid

:25:49.:25:53.

overnight as well and the only change across the south-east corner

:25:53.:25:58.

of our region is a few showers developing and they seemed to

:25:58.:26:02.

become a bit more active throughout the evening. Some could be quite

:26:03.:26:06.

heavy and thundery and slow-moving as well. We do not lose them

:26:06.:26:09.

totally, remaining with us along the Lancashire coastline until the

:26:09.:26:17.

early hours of the morning -- the Lincolnshire coast line. It will be

:26:18.:26:23.

difficult to get some sleep where it is quite muggy. We will see the

:26:23.:26:26.

showers becoming widespread throughout tomorrow and again, they

:26:26.:26:31.

will become quite heavy. Quite thundery as well as the day goes on.

:26:31.:26:38.

Temperatures even warmer than to date, highs of 27 Celsius but it is

:26:38.:26:47.

actually 81 Fahrenheit so we finally reach the 80s. The change

:26:47.:26:50.

comes in in the early hours of Thursday morning and it is a plume

of rain coming up from the Continent and what it will do is

become quite heavy and persistent, possibly thundery and the

:26:58.:27:02.

opportunity for it to cause some localised flooding as well because

:27:02.:27:06.

the ground is so dry, Senate will be a wet day on Thursday. A big

:27:06.:27:15.

change to what we have been getting used to -- so it will be a wet day.

:27:15.:27:20.

On Friday, if this hot and humid weather has not made you feel

:27:20.:27:22.

uncomfortable, temperatures will come down to what they should be

:27:22.:27:27.

for this time of year, possibly a bit lower. Highs of around 19
