In is East Midlands Today. Tonight, the airport and airlines no longer

:00:07.:00:12.

flying high. Yes, passenger numbers and profitings plummet as East

:00:12.:00:17.

Midlands Airport as the recession continues to bite P Also could

:00:17.:00:21.

relying on ready made baby foods during weaning affect a child's

:00:21.:00:28.

eating habits? Plus the campaign to save the pub. I think there won't

:00:28.:00:32.

be a community in longer in the village. I thought Mr Cameron

:00:32.:00:38.

wanted to keep communities alive. And I'm in Leicestershire finding

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:52.

out why these cows have benefited with pedometers. -- benefited. Good

:00:52.:00:56.

evening. Welcome to Friday's programme. First tonight, East

:00:56.:00:58.

Midlands Airport's passenger numbers and profits have dropped

:00:58.:01:03.

again. With management saying it is because the recession has continued

:01:03.:01:08.

to unwind. That is right. 400,000 fewer passengers used the airport

:01:08.:01:16.

last year but there are signs of an upturn. Good evening. Yes, a busy

:01:16.:01:20.

day here at East Midlands Airport, 100 passenger and 100 cargo planes

:01:20.:01:24.

in and out of the airport, but over the course of the last financial

:01:24.:01:27.

year, East Midlands Airport no different to other UK airports,

:01:27.:01:32.

there has been a downturn. The view from East Midlands Airport subpoena

:01:32.:01:37.

that it is still being buffeted by economic turbulence. Accuse coring

:01:37.:01:41.

to airport manager, the recession continued to unwind in the last

:01:41.:01:46.

financial year. Redicing passenger numbers. In tough times, it is

:01:46.:01:51.

understandable that some people are choosing not to fly within the UK,

:01:51.:01:54.

or abroad. We went for a week in Devon this year, just because we

:01:54.:01:59.

couldn't afford to go away this year. We had a cost cutting budget

:01:59.:02:04.

one, compared to going abroad. year I took my little boy, I had to

:02:04.:02:07.

take him to Butlins because it is cheaper. East Midlands Airport is

:02:07.:02:11.

part of the Manchester airport group. And its annual report shows

:02:11.:02:17.

how it is doing. In the 2011 financial year, passenger numbers

:02:17.:02:22.

were down by 400,000, to 4.1 million. The third consecutive year

:02:22.:02:27.

that passenger numbers have dropped. Profits have been hit. This year,

:02:27.:02:34.

profit was down by 2.6 million, to 7.1 million. Half of what it was

:02:34.:02:40.

two years ago. The ash cloud in April 2010 didn't help either.

:02:40.:02:45.

Costing the airport round �600,000. Other income streams have been

:02:45.:02:50.

important. Retail and car parking revenue have exceeded expectations.

:02:51.:02:56.

This independent travel agent based in Leicestershire says some people

:02:56.:03:00.

may be considering crewss rather than flying. You are looking at

:03:00.:03:05.

departing from Southampton, Dover, etc, on a seven, 14 night cruise

:03:05.:03:09.

down med and back again. It is more popular, there is more beds on the

:03:09.:03:14.

sea than there is on land on some occasions. The airport says there

:03:14.:03:18.

has been an increase in passenger numbers in the early part of 2011.

:03:18.:03:23.

They are hoping that will continue. Well, the airport told us in a

:03:23.:03:29.

statement a bit more about that upturn. They say from March to July

:03:29.:03:33.

passenger numbers are 4% above the UK market average, which they say

:03:34.:03:38.

is flat. So a bitle bit of improvement. I spoke to the

:03:38.:03:40.

Association of British Travel Agents as well. What they would

:03:40.:03:43.

like to see is the scrapping of the airport passenger duty, there are

:03:43.:03:49.

different levels on that, but they say every time you fly from

:03:49.:03:52.

somewhere like East Midland the Europe, that will cost you �13.

:03:52.:03:57.

Thank you. Next tonight police say they expect more arrests in

:03:57.:04:02.

connection with the murder of a man from Derby. 43-year-old Johnny

:04:02.:04:07.

Assani was assaulted in the city last Sunday afternoon. He died in

:04:07.:04:10.

the Queen's medical centre on Sunday. Three men have appeared in

:04:10.:04:13.

court, officers say they still want more people to come forward with

:04:13.:04:18.

information. Police are investigating another arson attack

:04:18.:04:24.

on hay bales at Nottinghamshire farm. The Fire Service 200 tonnes

:04:24.:04:29.

of hay were set alight. They will burn for a couple of days yet.

:04:29.:04:32.

Yesterday arsonists targeted Fife farms. The farmers affected say

:04:32.:04:36.

they have lost all of their animals' winter feed. Trading

:04:36.:04:42.

Standards officers in Derby have scene seized 900 bottles of bootleg

:04:42.:04:46.

vodka and 150 pacts of counterfeit tobacco. They were discovered in

:04:46.:04:50.

two separate stings on the same day. The City Council has warned the

:04:50.:04:54.

products can cause serious illnesses. It says counterfeiting

:04:54.:04:58.

is on the increase because of tough economic conditions. We have seen

:04:58.:05:05.

the deaths in Boston at the factory there, and more recently in

:05:05.:05:07.

Leicestershire, 100 thousand bottles of ill it is alcohol were

:05:07.:05:13.

seized in a factory. That is why in Derby the Trading Standards team

:05:13.:05:21.

are declaring war on ill it is tobacco and alcohol. We are build

:05:21.:05:26.

uper up for a heck of a weekend with sporting action. Including

:05:26.:05:29.

Leicester City taking on Nottingham Forest. On the road to success, the

:05:29.:05:32.

young people who have decided to get an apprenticeship instead of a

:05:32.:05:37.

degree. And I'm here to find out what these children are up to

:05:37.:05:47.
:05:47.:05:52.

Before all that though, a health expert is warning parents not to

:05:52.:05:57.

rely on prepackaged baby foods food during weaning. Research from De

:05:57.:06:01.

Monfort University suggests that babies who are fed processed foods

:06:01.:06:04.

can develop unhealthy eating habits when they are over. The

:06:04.:06:11.

manufacturers say ready made food can play an important role, as this

:06:11.:06:16.

report says It smell like an apple. A class in healthy eating. These

:06:16.:06:21.

children are enjoying their food. However, new research from De

:06:21.:06:25.

Monfort University suggests parents who rely on ready made food while

:06:25.:06:29.

weaning their baby could have an impact on the way they eat later in

:06:29.:06:34.

life. In a survey doctor Helen could thard found babies who were

:06:34.:06:39.

given more home cooked fruit and veg at six months were more likely

:06:39.:06:43.

to eating it at seven years. She says parents shouldn't rely on

:06:43.:06:47.

ready made food. The reason why these jar foods aren't as good as

:06:47.:06:51.

home-made foods is they are a product, so they rl always the same

:06:51.:06:56.

texture, they are the same taste, whereas if you make your own carrot

:06:56.:07:01.

puree or apple puree you will cook it differently each time and be

:07:01.:07:07.

different varieties of apple. You will mash it up differently, so it

:07:07.:07:11.

will taste different. Of course, baby food is a huge industry, and

:07:11.:07:17.

with strict nutritional guidelines to comply with many manufacturers

:07:17.:07:25.

say using prepackaged food can be a healthy part of the weaning process.

:07:25.:07:29.

They provide well balanced foods. Very often we find people using

:07:29.:07:32.

them for convenience when they are out or for parents to give to

:07:32.:07:36.

somebody who is minding a child during the day. The powder in the

:07:36.:07:41.

jars are good for when you are weaning them, if you haven't got

:07:41.:07:47.

time to blend all the food. If I have the time I prefer to give my

:07:47.:07:50.

own food at home. The aim of weaning is for the baby to eat the

:07:50.:07:54.

same food as the rest of the family. The research suggests home-made

:07:54.:08:00.

food skrould a bearing. Next tonight, the alternative to

:08:00.:08:04.

university. As a record number of students chase every degree course

:08:04.:08:08.

available, it seems that many are also opting to skip higher

:08:09.:08:12.

education all together. Some ployers say they prefer to take

:08:12.:08:17.

young people straight from school, and there are all sorts of

:08:17.:08:23.

opportunities available. Tears of joy as making the grade but not all

:08:23.:08:28.

of the students have their sights set on university. Choosing will to

:08:28.:08:32.

stay on in further education can be a difficult decision, for some not

:08:32.:08:36.

going to university turned out to be the right choice. Ross left

:08:36.:08:40.

school at 16, and started a three year apprenticeship at this

:08:40.:08:44.

accident repair centre in Leicester. Because I had good GCSEs when I

:08:44.:08:48.

left school it was an option for me to do my A-levels but I wanted to

:08:48.:08:53.

get a skill behind me, because once I have that skill, I kl always

:08:53.:08:56.

improvement and -- improvement. I wanted to earn money as well. Bl it

:08:56.:09:01.

is a view shared by Andrew, two years ago he decided not go

:09:01.:09:08.

university, and has no regrets It has been amazing. It has flown by,

:09:08.:09:12.

but no worrys in my life. The only worry is passing the next exam. I

:09:12.:09:16.

am not going to worry about money. I can drive. I have money if I want

:09:16.:09:22.

to go out. One of his managers says there are many benefits for

:09:22.:09:26.

trainees who haven't chosen the academic route. We can mould them

:09:26.:09:33.

in the way the firm wants them to operate. They are young, they are

:09:33.:09:39.

enthusiastic, full of energy, and usually a very keen to learn. We

:09:39.:09:43.

feed off that. With tuition fees increasing next year, some

:09:43.:09:47.

employers believe that more and more students will look at alten --

:09:47.:09:54.

alternative ways to get on their chosen career path. To the other

:09:54.:09:59.

news and detectives investigating three indecent assaults are

:09:59.:10:03.

following up a number of new leads. A man attacked three women in

:10:03.:10:07.

different parts of Leicester. The oldest was 74. Police have been

:10:07.:10:10.

working with the victims to identify a potential suspect.

:10:10.:10:14.

Officers want people with information about the man to come

:10:14.:10:19.

forward. Nearly a quarter of blood donors in Derby aren't turning up

:10:19.:10:25.

for their appointments. Hospitals are missing out on as many as 30

:10:25.:10:28.

units of blood from each session. The department says it could be

:10:28.:10:35.

down to the number of people away on holiday at the moment. The

:10:35.:10:38.

Government's awarded researchs money to develop new medical

:10:38.:10:44.

treatments. The hospital also use the money to help combat digestive

:10:44.:10:52.

diseases and hearing problems. One patient speaks very highly of the

:10:52.:10:56.

departments. It had made me realise I did have a problem, and that the

:10:56.:11:00.

training, it seems to have improved things and following that, having

:11:00.:11:05.

identified the loss of hearing, I was eventually kitted out with a

:11:05.:11:11.

nice hearing aid system, which benefited me no end. You are

:11:11.:11:15.

watching East Midlands Today. Regulars at a village's last

:11:15.:11:21.

remaining pub are fighting plans to redevelop the site it is on. The

:11:21.:11:24.

owners Greene King have applied to build seven house tons lands and

:11:24.:11:29.

the villagers aren't happy about it. We went to meet the campaigners

:11:29.:11:34.

determined not to have last orders called on their local. Records show

:11:34.:11:39.

that there has been an ale house on this site since 1881. For the

:11:39.:11:42.

people of this village it is the only pub left in the village. Which

:11:42.:11:49.

is why they rup in arms over plans to demolish the Foresters Arms.

:11:49.:11:54.

is a community pub and we had Christenings, weddings and funerals

:11:54.:12:00.

and we did a lot for charity, it was the centre of the village.

:12:00.:12:04.

come in winter for darts and dom nose. Summer, we have a game of

:12:04.:12:08.

bingo and it is lovely everybody is so friendly. The owners Greene King

:12:08.:12:12.

say they have been reviewing the pub's future because of a drop in

:12:12.:12:19.

trade. They hope to build seven houses on the site The village has

:12:19.:12:25.

been the butchers and the Forester's Arms. It will be sad to

:12:25.:12:30.

see it go. The pub is one DH Lawrence would have known as a boy.

:12:30.:12:36.

Villagers say it would rip the heart out of the community. If this

:12:36.:12:44.

pub we won't go anywhere else. don't know see why the pubs can't

:12:44.:12:50.

survive. There is the Hay Loft. I can't walk Cowen there If the plans

:12:50.:12:59.

are turned down by the council, the villagers plan to celebrate.

:12:59.:13:03.

Pedometers are often used by walkers and people wanting to lose

:13:03.:13:07.

right but farmers are fitting them to their cows. The more walking a

:13:07.:13:11.

cow does the more likely she is to be ready to get pregnant. Didn't

:13:11.:13:17.

know that! Computers built-in to milks systems can be used to

:13:17.:13:22.

analyse the data. Sigh Monday -- Simon Ward has the been to find out

:13:22.:13:26.

more. Cows walking through a field in Leicestershire. Nothing

:13:26.:13:31.

remarkable in that, but thetz cows are being monitored every step of

:13:31.:13:37.

the way. These. Pedometers count how far they whack. Walking less

:13:37.:13:43.

could mean the cow has gone lame. Every time they come back to be

:13:43.:13:47.

milked it counts how many steps she has done and if she is on heat we

:13:47.:13:55.

will put her in a separation pen or I can hon ter her. The 120

:13:55.:13:58.

Friesians are being trained to return to the farm for milking,

:13:58.:14:03.

they are linked to a new system the cows are getting used to. They feel

:14:03.:14:06.

relief after being milk and they get extra food after going through

:14:06.:14:11.

the system. In the farm building the cows wait for their turn to be

:14:11.:14:16.

milked and this is where all the data is collected. Lacers position

:14:16.:14:20.

the milking equipment. But it is not just about milk. Health

:14:20.:14:25.

information is picked gip system as well. The theory is it should help

:14:25.:14:29.

reduce the vets' bills. You will have earlier indication of any

:14:29.:14:37.

health problem, be it energy shortage because the protein and

:14:37.:14:42.

fat levels become imbalanced in the milk. And masti tis is the bigger

:14:42.:14:46.

issue. It should flag up any signs earlier, you can treat them earlier

:14:46.:14:51.

and you need less antibiotics. the cows on the farm were born

:14:51.:14:54.

through artificial insemination. The next generation will be grow up

:14:55.:15:01.

and be used to having a pedometer fitted and being milked bay robot.

:15:01.:15:06.

So that is what they are. I thought they had got ASBOs. I thought you

:15:06.:15:11.

carried a pink rose if you were going for a date! There is a huge

:15:11.:15:15.

weekend of sport ahead including that local Derby between Leicester

:15:15.:15:20.

City and Nottingham Forest. A game that will see two former England

:15:20.:15:24.

managers clash. More on that in a moment, as well as the weekend

:15:24.:15:31.

forecast from Fog horn Sal. Attention ladies and gentlemen, the

:15:31.:15:37.

weather tomorrow will bring rain and Sunday we will see the sunshine

:15:37.:15:41.

again. I assure you on the television I am a bit quieter than

:15:41.:15:51.
:15:51.:15:54.

She really does not need that! He is not quieter. Now, when was the

:15:54.:15:59.

last time you heard a kuebg coo? I think I might have heard one this

:16:00.:16:03.

summer or maybe seen a turtledove. I don't think I have seen one of

:16:03.:16:07.

those. Experts of the British bird watching fair are warning of a fall

:16:07.:16:11.

in the numbers of migrating birds over the last few years. This year

:16:11.:16:13.

money from the fair will fund projects from Africa, through

:16:14.:16:22.

Europe, to Britain, to find out what is going wrong. Africa

:16:22.:16:27.

features highly in the bird fair as do other countries which lie along

:16:27.:16:31.

migration routes into the UK. Experts are concerned some of our

:16:31.:16:36.

birds are missing. Many of these are familiar. The swallows that

:16:36.:16:40.

nest in garages and barns or kuebgkoo, turtledoves but many are

:16:40.:16:47.

in serious trouble. We have lost two thirds of the cue -- cuckoos in

:16:47.:16:54.

Britain. The turtledove has declined 80%. Simon has seen the

:16:54.:17:01.

decline first hard. Cuckoo. Nightingale. I used to hear

:17:01.:17:05.

turtledoves regularly. Now? If I hear them in Italy I am lucky, so

:17:05.:17:10.

something is happening. Is it us? Climate change? We can't answer the

:17:10.:17:14.

questions a without research and that takes funding. So ticket sales

:17:14.:17:18.

are going towards that research, into why some of our visiting birds

:17:18.:17:23.

haven't been turning up in the spring. We all of us, where ever we

:17:23.:17:26.

live have a responsibility to look after our neighbour, our natural

:17:26.:17:31.

neighbour, be their bids birds, other wild creatures. It is getting

:17:31.:17:35.

serious, if we continue do something, the birds will disappear

:17:35.:17:42.

completely. The bird fair is on until Sunday and organisers hope

:17:42.:17:52.
:17:52.:17:55.

the ticket sales will raise �250,000. From birds of a feathered

:17:55.:18:02.

variety to sport of a weekend variety! Yes, first it is the tale

:18:02.:18:08.

of two former England managers at the city ground tomorrow. Steve

:18:09.:18:12.

McClaren's November face Sven-Goran Eriksson's Leicester City. Five

:18:12.:18:19.

years after Steve replaced Sven as England boss they come up against

:18:19.:18:27.

each other. For years they were friends.

:18:27.:18:32.

# Just the two of us # We can make it if we try

:18:32.:18:39.

# Just the two of us. # Comrades for England and allys they

:18:39.:18:44.

are buddys. On and off the field he is a gentleman. We are good friends.

:18:44.:18:50.

We had five, six year, great years. During those year, Sven was manager,

:18:50.:18:55.

Steve his coach, they took England to a World Cup quarterfinal, this

:18:55.:19:02.

last time they were on the touchline together. Yes, the years

:19:02.:19:10.

go fast, very fast. Yeah, but that is 2006. World Cup. Is that right?

:19:10.:19:14.

That is different tomorrow, when I'm about 20 yards away from him,

:19:14.:19:22.

not sat next to him. It will be the first time they meet as opposing

:19:22.:19:28.

managers. Two ex-England manager, it is not every day that happens in

:19:28.:19:33.

the Championship. It's a big game, an important game, but I'm just

:19:33.:19:35.

looking at Nottingham Forest, making sure that we perform better,

:19:35.:19:43.

and get the result. Both now are rebuilding their reputation, at big

:19:43.:19:47.

expectant clubs so it won't be easy and in the last five fixtures

:19:47.:19:53.

between the two teams there has been plenty -- 20 goals. Travelling

:19:53.:19:59.

with over 4,000 fan, which is fantastic. It is a big game. Always

:20:00.:20:04.

a big game against Leicester. Big for the fans. Between them, they

:20:04.:20:09.

have won major trophys in swede, Italy, Portugal, England and

:20:09.:20:12.

Holland but who will be the king of the East Midlands tomorrow night?

:20:12.:20:18.

There is a lot resting on it. hope he will offer me a nice glass

:20:18.:20:22.

of red wine. And he will. We said after this game we will go out for

:20:22.:20:27.

dinner and whoever loses will pay! Well there is another clash of the

:20:27.:20:32.

Titans this weekend. Remember when these two worked together? Martin

:20:32.:20:38.

Allen, he faces his old boss Milan Mandarich tomorrow. Martin, versus

:20:38.:20:43.

Milan will play out at Hillsborough. Milan Mandarich owns Sheffield

:20:43.:20:47.

Wednesday but he sacked Allen after four gamings, when they were at

:20:47.:20:54.

Leicester. Who will come out on top? Well, my money is on mad dog.

:20:54.:20:59.

We did a big feature on our best performing team. The Rams host

:20:59.:21:03.

Doncaster and if they win, it will be the first time they have won

:21:03.:21:09.

four on the trot at the start of the season since 1905. Now, over

:21:09.:21:13.

the past six years on East Midlands Today we followed the remarkable

:21:13.:21:20.

story of Matt Hampson. He is a Leicester Tigers player wheeze

:21:20.:21:23.

career came to an end after a training ground injury. He has been

:21:23.:21:32.

an inspiration to others and he has told his story in a book. Five

:21:32.:21:37.

years ago, Sunday Times journalist Paul interviewed Matt Hampson and

:21:37.:21:43.

they became friends and Matt persuaded him to write his

:21:43.:21:46.

autobiography. Engage, the last words he heard before he went down

:21:46.:21:52.

in a scrum. He ended up in Stoke Mandeville. The trials and

:21:52.:21:58.

tribulations I have been through since my accident, unbelievable. I

:21:58.:22:04.

wanted to tell people how it is and how it was in hospital. I was at

:22:04.:22:09.

that stage 20 years a sports writer, and I had never been as nervous

:22:09.:22:14.

interviewing anybody as I was the day I walked into Matt. I went in

:22:14.:22:20.

and within five minutes he had me at ease, he has a tremendousable to

:22:20.:22:24.

make people feel relaxed, and good and particularly good about

:22:24.:22:30.

themselves. He called himself the ghostwriter. He is the brains

:22:30.:22:35.

behind the project. I'm, I'm just a prop forward. It might not sound

:22:35.:22:40.

like a funny book but it is packed with humour, around the characters

:22:40.:22:45.

in the spinal unit. He said the guys in there you could make a TV

:22:45.:22:49.

series out of that. The humour among the guys in there. It was

:22:50.:22:54.

really very interesting, and enlightening. It is an amazing

:22:54.:23:00.

story about an amazing person. Matt says his injury has made him a

:23:00.:23:04.

better person. When I was lying in hospital I thought why me?

:23:04.:23:11.

Eventually, it hit me one day, why not me? It could have happened to

:23:11.:23:18.

anyone and I was lucky I was doing, doing something I enjoy and loved.

:23:18.:23:25.

Well done Matt. In rugby the Leicester Tigers face the French

:23:25.:23:31.

super14 side Leon in a preseason match. On to cricket and the rain

:23:31.:23:39.

interrupted game at Taunton. Derbyshire needed to win their game

:23:39.:23:44.

at Chesterfield against north hapbts but the visitors declared on

:23:44.:23:49.

416 for nine and in Wales it is closer after Leicestershire

:23:49.:23:53.

declared on 309 for seven. Glamorgan are 126 for four, and

:23:53.:24:00.

that is all your sport. Thank you Natalie. Doesn't she read well! My

:24:00.:24:04.

mothers youed to say you're never too young to read and mothers are

:24:04.:24:08.

right. I wish my children would remember that. That is why children

:24:09.:24:12.

across the East Midlands are being encouraged to curl up with a book.

:24:12.:24:17.

Thousands of children are taking part and we went to see some of our

:24:17.:24:27.
:24:27.:24:29.

young readers. Here is a novel idea. Take one child, six books, and one

:24:29.:24:35.

summer holiday. The result? An enthusiastic reader with lots of

:24:35.:24:40.

favourite books. Anne Frank. Why is that? Because she had to hide in

:24:40.:24:45.

the attic because the Germans were tried to find her. The magic far

:24:45.:24:50.

away tree. Snow White. Why? Because it has Princess in it. The scheme

:24:50.:24:56.

is part of a national campaign. 12,000 -- 12745 children have taken

:24:56.:25:01.

part in the reading challenge across Leicestershire. 1358

:25:01.:25:06.

children have joined a library, just to take part in the challenge.

:25:06.:25:10.

And six book, that is the number each child has to read to complete

:25:10.:25:15.

the challenge. Schools report there is a summer holiday reading dip and

:25:15.:25:20.

it takes a few weeks to get them back to that level. The challenge

:25:20.:25:24.

keeps them at that level. When they go back to school it is not hard to

:25:24.:25:29.

pick it up again. My children have done it for a few years. It is

:25:29.:25:34.

hoped children here will be off to a flying start as they open a new

:25:34.:25:41.

chapter of their school lives in the next few weeks. They are lovely

:25:41.:25:51.
:25:51.:25:52.

aren't they. They are sweet. They are not like our Foghorn Sal.

:25:52.:25:56.

Sunday there is a charity fun run to raise funds for a much-needed

:25:56.:26:01.

brand-new x-ray machine. I will be there to start the race off. So a

:26:01.:26:06.

there to start the race off. So a need a megaphone. We will tell you

:26:06.:26:12.

there may be a chance over the next, the coming days of sightings of the

:26:12.:26:14.

International Space Station, would you believe. You will be able to

:26:14.:26:18.

see it from where you are, in the East Midlands, what you need to do

:26:18.:26:23.

is look to a west to south-westerly direction, at round about six

:26:23.:26:26.

minute past ten tonight. Hopefully the clear skies will stay with us,

:26:26.:26:30.

you will see it crossing from west to east. You will be able to see it

:26:30.:26:35.

with binoculars. If you want to see more check out the NASA website.

:26:35.:26:39.

Let us look at the weather forecast. We can see we have this system that

:26:39.:26:43.

is starting to move in from the west. For us, we are hopeful we are

:26:43.:26:48.

going to stay dry but we are seeing that cloud spreading its way in, as

:26:48.:26:52.

we go through the next few hours. We should hopefully keep hold of

:26:52.:26:55.

clear spells as we go through the evening. They will be few and far

:26:55.:27:00.

between. The sightings maybe a bit shortlived. Generally staying dry

:27:00.:27:03.

in the East Midlands and the temperatures on the humid side. 13C

:27:03.:27:07.

as your minimum temperature. So we start off Saturday morning, on a

:27:07.:27:11.

warmer note compared to the past couple of mornings. Dry and bright

:27:11.:27:14.

to started, the cloud starts to build in and we see this

:27:14.:27:19.

fragmenting front work up from the south. So it turns patchy and light

:27:19.:27:24.

in nature. Any rain we do see into tomorrow evening. The temperatures

:27:24.:27:28.

21C your high. A much better second half to the weekend. Sunday looks

:27:28.:27:33.
