Dominic Heale and me, Kylie Pentelow.

:00:02.:00:07.

Tonight, panic at 35,000 feet. A Ryanair pilot takes emergency

:00:07.:00:13.

action after a sudden loss of cabin pressure. "Mayday, Ryanair! Mayday,

:00:13.:00:16.

Mayday!", and he was saying it rapidly as we were going down. I

:00:16.:00:23.

thought my number was up. Also tonight, retail park by day,

:00:23.:00:32.

race track by night. Now the police get tough.

:00:32.:00:38.

And the pressure's on for some, as the hosepipe ban kicks in.

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:56.

And what will the Time Team dig up Good evening. First tonight, a

:00:56.:00:59.

couple say they're grateful to be alive after their Ryanair flight to

:00:59.:01:01.

the East Midlands suddenly lost cabin pressure over the Alps and

:01:01.:01:05.

headed downwards. Jacqueline and Melvin Frater were on their way

:01:06.:01:10.

home from a surprise break in northern Italy. Their plane made an

:01:10.:01:15.

emergency landing in Germany. The German authorities say 13 people

:01:15.:01:19.

were injured in the incident, three of them seriously. The Fraters say

:01:19.:01:22.

they're concerned because this is the second incident of this kind on

:01:22.:01:32.
:01:32.:01:33.

a Ryanair flight in two months, as James Roberson reports. A safely

:01:33.:01:36.

home at Bakers Field in Nottingham, Jacqueline and Melvin Frater

:01:36.:01:39.

reviewed the holiday that should have been a treat.

:01:39.:01:43.

Jackie had surprised Melvin with a short break in northern Italy, but

:01:43.:01:48.

their flight home tending to fear. You could see the whites of the

:01:48.:01:51.

eyes of the people next to you. People weren't panicking but they

:01:51.:02:00.

were not screaming or shouting. minutes into the journey the plane

:02:00.:02:06.

had reached 5,000 feet. Just north of Nagano, is suddenly lost cabin

:02:06.:02:14.

pressure. Boxed remarks -- oxygen masks were released. The plane

:02:14.:02:19.

rapidly descended, at four miles every few merits. The crew turned

:02:19.:02:25.

north and headed for Frankfurt airport in Germany. We overheard

:02:25.:02:29.

the captain saying, Mayday, Mayday! And he was saying it rapidly as we

:02:29.:02:34.

were going down. I thought my number.. I don't know how long we

:02:34.:02:38.

were actually falling. You could tell it was rapidly because of the

:02:38.:02:44.

pressure in your ears. Then the children and babies started crying.

:02:44.:02:49.

It did level out. After several hours, Ryanair flu the passengers

:02:49.:02:57.

home to East Midlands on another plane. -- Ryanair flew. 13

:02:57.:03:01.

passengers were injured in the incident, three seriously. An

:03:01.:03:07.

investigation has started. The Fraters has stop -- are concerned

:03:07.:03:12.

because another aeroplane suffered a similar decompression in February.

:03:12.:03:15.

Apparently, it had happened to other planes of that make but I

:03:15.:03:20.

would like to know exactly what caused it. In a statement tonight,

:03:20.:03:24.

Ryanair said that the captain identified a pressurise social

:03:24.:03:29.

morning and deployed oxygen masks and went down as recommended.

:03:29.:03:33.

Passengers disembarked as normally to be provided with refreshments.

:03:34.:03:39.

The company also apologised to pressures affected by this

:03:39.:03:45.

experience and by the delay. Next tonight, it's here. After

:03:45.:03:47.

months of drought warnings, a hosepipe ban officially began in

:03:47.:03:51.

parts of our region today. Anglian Water is asking people to conserve

:03:51.:03:56.

as much water as they can. But what about the millions of litres they

:03:56.:03:59.

lose through leakage? Simon Ward is at Rutland Water. What's the

:03:59.:04:05.

situation like there this evening, Simon? Anglian Water say it has

:04:05.:04:09.

been the driest 18 months for a century and that is despite the

:04:09.:04:14.

rain we have had in the past couple of days. It has not been enough to

:04:14.:04:19.

prevent the hosepipe ban coming into force. Normally here, we would

:04:19.:04:25.

be knee-deep in water. You can probably see the fishermen behind

:04:25.:04:32.

me. Earlier today, I was out with a leak prevention team to find out

:04:33.:04:38.

how they carry out their work. Listening for leaks. Here in this

:04:38.:04:43.

village, 80 my using traditional and modern techniques. This metal

:04:43.:04:47.

rod is used to listen for water seeping out of underground pipes.

:04:47.:04:53.

At electronic devices are also used to pinpoint leaks. This calculates

:04:53.:04:58.

the time it takes for the League sound to which either sensor and

:04:58.:05:07.

convert that into a distance. -- to reach. Last month, the detection

:05:07.:05:13.

target was Mr, meaning of the loss of 2 million litres each day.

:05:13.:05:18.

have doubled our investment and another 60 people are out on the

:05:18.:05:22.

ground looking for leaks and finding them. But we need a lot

:05:22.:05:30.

customers to help us, so if they spot a leak, we will be out to be

:05:30.:05:36.

sorted out. We frequently go to Rutland Water for sailing. For many

:05:36.:05:42.

people, it is really good. So we are not surprised it has come a

:05:42.:05:46.

long and we are quite ready. don't think it is right. A lot of

:05:46.:05:52.

water is wasted. We don't have baths, we have showers. And I think

:05:52.:05:55.

if people consider how they are using their water, it would make a

:05:56.:06:01.

great deal of difference. James Williams is a keen gardener. He

:06:01.:06:05.

uses rainwater to top up the pond and more to his plants. I think the

:06:05.:06:10.

key issue is adapting how you use water. Being more specific with

:06:10.:06:15.

using it in a spot bases rather than spring it everywhere.

:06:15.:06:19.

Hosepipes are useful. Let's not beat around the bush! But they are

:06:19.:06:23.

not necessary. While efforts are being made to save water, the

:06:23.:06:28.

length of the hosepipe ban will be down to nature in the end.

:06:28.:06:33.

Rutland Water is a source of water for Anglian customers, in Stamford

:06:33.:06:37.

and the surrounding areas, and Anglian Water said to us today the

:06:37.:06:41.

ban is expected to last through the summer, possibly for the rest of

:06:41.:06:46.

the year. That is the bad news. It would take about two months of

:06:46.:06:52.

persistent rain to have sorted out. Other customers served by Severn

:06:52.:06:55.

Trent Water will be happy to know that Severn Trent Water have said

:06:55.:06:59.

they have no plans to bring in a ban this summer.

:06:59.:07:02.

You're watching East Midlands Today. Still to come, the big Easter

:07:02.:07:05.

getaway begins but the airport says passengers won't be held up by

:07:05.:07:11.

border checks. Getting tough on so-called drifters

:07:11.:07:17.

- gangs of youths who race cars at night. It's happening in the

:07:17.:07:19.

Colwick area of Nottingham and police say it's putting lives at

:07:19.:07:23.

risk. Today a sign has gone up warning the drivers that if they

:07:23.:07:27.

carry on, they could be speeding their way to a prison sentence, as

:07:27.:07:37.
:07:37.:07:42.

Jo Healey reports. It is incredibly noisy...

:07:42.:07:47.

residents, for us at the back, it is a horrific problems. For them,

:07:47.:07:54.

it is a thrill. But many fear it could kill. And they say it is a

:07:54.:08:01.

nuisance. It disturbs us a great deal and the sleep of the children.

:08:02.:08:09.

Every night, it is relentless. is what this is about. There is now

:08:09.:08:13.

a court injunction in place and penalties for so-called drifters

:08:13.:08:17.

will be much tougher. It means we can take positive action against

:08:17.:08:21.

the real anti-social behaviour taking place. The ultimate outcome

:08:21.:08:27.

being, if you have reached the injunction, you can go to prison.

:08:28.:08:32.

And that threat is what this warning letter is all about. From

:08:32.:08:37.

this weekend, it will be handed out to the so-called drifters. If they

:08:37.:08:42.

speed and raise their cars, if they create excessive noise, they could

:08:42.:08:52.
:08:52.:08:53.

be guilty of contempt of court. Dash Olympic Park Run -- race. They

:08:53.:09:03.
:09:03.:09:04.

often come out on a Sunday night. We have put in CCTV cameras so we

:09:04.:09:08.

are doing everything possible to try to disperse this. They are

:09:08.:09:12.

concerned it will simply shift the Drifters to another area, so now

:09:12.:09:16.

they are calling for a county-wide injunction.

:09:16.:09:19.

Police have released an image of a man they want to trace in

:09:19.:09:23.

connection with an armed robbery. It happened at a shop on

:09:23.:09:25.

Loughborough Road in Leicester yesterday evening. A man threatened

:09:26.:09:29.

a member of staff with a firearm and demanded money. He left empty-

:09:29.:09:35.

handed. The man was wearing grey overalls with a hood and sunglasses.

:09:35.:09:38.

A man's been charged following an attempted armed robbery at a post

:09:38.:09:41.

office in Leicestershire. The postmaster was approached in

:09:41.:09:44.

Nottingham in February before being driven to his post office in

:09:44.:09:48.

Barrow-upon-Soar. A 30-year-old man has been charged with kidnap,

:09:48.:09:53.

carrying a firearm in public and attempted robbery.

:09:53.:09:56.

Protestors camped on Old Market Square in Nottingham won't be

:09:56.:10:01.

evicted for at least another three weeks. A judge has ruled there

:10:01.:10:05.

should be a trial so that human rights issues can be considered.

:10:05.:10:09.

Occupy Nottingham started their protest almost six months ago. The

:10:09.:10:12.

City Council says it owns the land and that the camp is an

:10:12.:10:21.

unacceptable nuisance, as Quentin Rayner reports.

:10:21.:10:31.

Who's square? ALL: Our square! Who's square? ALL: Our square! A

:10:31.:10:36.

county court judge has agreed to hold a trial, postponing the

:10:36.:10:42.

eviction for several makes. -- several weeks. The camp has been

:10:42.:10:47.

here longer than any other in the city. The protesters claim ancient

:10:47.:10:50.

rights dating back to Edward the First entitle them to protest on a

:10:50.:10:56.

land. Today the judge ruled that a trial was needed to look at the

:10:56.:11:00.

balance of human rights issues. Human rights is a fundamental --

:11:00.:11:06.

fundamental issue. In fact, it is a key point. The right to assembly

:11:06.:11:13.

and a protest. We need to look at this for Occupy Nottingham and the

:11:13.:11:17.

movement as a whole and these rights need to be upheld. At the

:11:17.:11:21.

heart of the matter is that he public highway cannot be used as a

:11:21.:11:25.

campsite in definitely, say the city council. They also say there

:11:25.:11:28.

is a pressing need to remove the camp because of the nuisance from

:11:28.:11:33.

odour and urination issues, which have increased. The council says it

:11:33.:11:37.

has given the protesters countless opportunity to leave and they could

:11:37.:11:40.

still go and avoid the need for a trial.

:11:40.:11:42.

Managers at East Midlands Airport say they're confident there won't

:11:42.:11:45.

be any delays at passport control this Easter, as thousands of people

:11:45.:11:49.

jet off for their holidays. Concerns had been expressed by a

:11:49.:11:52.

number of airlines. They fear UK airports won't have enough Border

:11:52.:11:55.

Agency staff to carry out full security checks, as Tom Brown

:11:55.:12:05.
:12:05.:12:06.

reports. Luggage, check. Sunhats, check. And

:12:06.:12:10.

don't forget the company toy. It is that time of year regain when

:12:10.:12:15.

thousands flocked to the airport, stopping East Midlands rain and

:12:15.:12:23.

snow for some continental sun. are going to Barcelona. Malabar.

:12:23.:12:27.

The two Sharm El-Sheikh. Because it is nice weather. Better than here!

:12:27.:12:32.

Egypt. We are going for a break and to celebrate my husband's 40th

:12:32.:12:40.

birthday. We're going to Egypt. It would be really nice if I could

:12:40.:12:45.

lead England for a bit and come back in two weeks. Is that OK?

:12:45.:12:50.

it could be a bumper Easter for the airport. The number of flying is

:12:50.:12:55.

expected to rise by more than 1,000. It is the 4th consecutive Easter

:12:55.:12:59.

the airport has seen a rise in passengers. But more flying means

:12:59.:13:03.

more strain on border controls and there were fears that a lack of

:13:03.:13:08.

staff could lead to major delays. But here at East Midlands Airport,

:13:08.:13:13.

they say there will be no hold-ups for passengers. We checked

:13:13.:13:16.

yesterday and at the beginning of the week and they are absolutely

:13:16.:13:20.

certain there will be no problems for people coming back over the

:13:20.:13:24.

Easter holidays. But the message to passengers is also not to get

:13:24.:13:28.

complacent. Arrive two hours before and you won't be left hanging

:13:28.:13:38.
:13:38.:13:40.

around. Two Church of England bishops have

:13:40.:13:42.

been offering a free shoe-shining service. Today it's Maundy Thursday,

:13:42.:13:45.

when the Church remembers how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.

:13:45.:13:48.

The Bishop of Sherwood and the Bishop of Southwell & Nottingham

:13:48.:13:52.

joined local clergy to shine shoes in Mansfield. This is my new friend,

:13:52.:13:57.

Alan, and what we are doing, we are cleaning his shoes for him! The

:13:57.:14:01.

reason is, it is what we call Maundy Thursday and we are

:14:01.:14:07.

remembering when Jesus washed feet. We prefer to clean shoes! This is

:14:07.:14:11.

the second deal we have done it. Last year, Nottingham, this year

:14:11.:14:15.

Mansfield. Next year, who knows? Next, to a pile of old stones not

:14:15.:14:18.

far from the former mining town of Clipstone in Nottinghamshire. The

:14:18.:14:22.

ruin barely merits a mention in the history books but its true place in

:14:22.:14:25.

history is about to be revealed. It's an old hunting lodge and is

:14:25.:14:31.

about to star in its own TV show. John Holmes has been to take a look.

:14:31.:14:38.

King John's Palace in a Clipstone. We are told and the Middle Ages it

:14:38.:14:44.

was a hunting lodge fit for a king. What do we know about it? Henry the

:14:44.:14:48.

second had it built when Richard -- Richard the lion heart would not

:14:48.:14:53.

have a meeting. This is the place he chose. Edward the First help

:14:53.:14:57.

Parliament he and Robin Hood popped up a few times. But that is all we

:14:57.:15:02.

understand. There may be more to learn... We have done loads of

:15:02.:15:07.

archaeology on that side of this wall and none on this... Today, the

:15:07.:15:12.

land is owned by two farmers. For Mickey, the arrival of a television

:15:12.:15:17.

crew is not a day too soon. Time Team's visit was a real life-

:15:17.:15:23.

saver. What did you feel when the biggest turned up? Oh, excited! And

:15:23.:15:29.

severely! It was a dream come true! With the archaeology close to the

:15:29.:15:34.

win so badly trashed, the net is spread wider. Two more trenches are

:15:34.:15:39.

added, based on the physics results. The first pegs and a strong radar

:15:39.:15:43.

feature on the southern edge of the site. The second transcends what

:15:43.:15:48.

could be a boundary ditch to the West. Maybe, just maybe, the

:15:48.:15:53.

archaeology will be better preserved at the site edges. Do you

:15:53.:15:56.

know what they found? everything. I am sure I was not

:15:56.:16:01.

allowed to see everything they found. And you are very keen to get

:16:01.:16:05.

what it -- visitors here? This is Nottingham's history and should be

:16:05.:16:10.

shared by everybody. And we have the most iconic forest anywhere in

:16:10.:16:15.

the world. Everybody knows Sherwood Forest. And if this adds to its

:16:15.:16:21.

glory, then that is all the better. A English Heritage and Notts County

:16:21.:16:25.

Council has spent over �100,000 making the ruin save for us to

:16:25.:16:30.

visit. Meanwhile, if like me, your appetite has been whetted, on

:16:30.:16:34.

Sunday, you will be eager to see what the 20 has unearthed.

:16:34.:16:44.

Her intriguing! We are very keen. - - what What's On has unearthed.

:16:44.:16:47.

Have -- what Time Team has unearthed.

:16:47.:16:50.

This is East Midlands Today. Coming up later... I'll be learning how to

:16:50.:16:54.

survive in the forest with just the basics.

:16:54.:16:56.

First tonight, devastating news for Derby County's skipper, Shaun

:16:56.:17:00.

Barker. The club has confirmed he'll be out for the whole of next

:17:00.:17:03.

season. Barker suffered a serious knee injury during the game with

:17:03.:17:06.

Nottingham Forest and underwent surgery last week. It revealed the

:17:06.:17:09.

damage is worse than originally feared and will mean the Rams

:17:09.:17:13.

skipper will play no part in the next season. The club has promised

:17:13.:17:18.

their full support for his rehabilitation and we wish him well.

:17:18.:17:21.

Onto Forest, and a massive game for them this weekend. Victory against

:17:21.:17:25.

Bristol City would lift them well clear of the drop zone. Anything

:17:25.:17:28.

else could see them dragged back into a relegation battle. So little

:17:28.:17:37.

wonder it's being billed as the biggest game of their season so far.

:17:37.:17:42.

He first arrived here as a fresh- faced teenager, turning down

:17:42.:17:46.

Arsenal and Manchester United to join the reds. He said he felt

:17:46.:17:51.

wanted then, so when the call came for Steve McClaren, he returned to

:17:51.:17:56.

where his career first began. quite emotional. I don't want to

:17:56.:18:00.

sound like I am going to cry, but I learned so much. I learned the

:18:00.:18:04.

basics of the game and I had a great education here coming up

:18:04.:18:09.

through the academy. It felt really right. The right situation and

:18:09.:18:15.

scenario for me to come back. I was more than happy to sign. High hopes

:18:15.:18:20.

faded when the clarinet and a new manager took over. Big ambitions

:18:20.:18:25.

instead turn to a battle against relegation. Forest in front again

:18:25.:18:31.

at the City Ground! It is not ability. That is not the issue. It

:18:31.:18:38.

has got to be me. When things aren't going too well, when you are

:18:38.:18:43.

1-0 down and a crowd of getting on your back... What do you do? Do you

:18:43.:18:46.

shrink and disappear out of the game or do you stick your chest out

:18:46.:18:51.

and go, I am going to keep doing the same thing. But the fortunes of

:18:51.:18:56.

Forest have changed in the last few weeks. They have been lifted six

:18:57.:19:02.

points clear of the drop zone. Next up, Bristol City. For me, this is

:19:02.:19:06.

the biggest game of the season and we can't afford to be complacent.

:19:06.:19:10.

We need better results than we have had all season because this game

:19:10.:19:14.

could be the difference between, you know, enjoying the run-in and

:19:14.:19:17.

may be playing some good football and picking up some good results,

:19:18.:19:22.

or also looking over our shoulder the whole time. So a massive,

:19:22.:19:25.

massive game for us. At Leicester City, manager Nigel

:19:25.:19:27.

Pearson has played down suggestions there's been a fallout with star

:19:27.:19:31.

striker Jermaine Beckford. He said he would be included in the squad

:19:31.:19:38.

for their game against Doncaster. have got no control over what gets

:19:38.:19:48.

into the national media. And how I worked... I think things are dealt

:19:48.:19:53.

with in-house for pretty obvious reasons and it is as simple as that.

:19:53.:19:56.

Notts County play Leyton Orient tomorrow, still with a chance of

:19:56.:19:59.

making the play-offs. And manager Keith Curle says his team should

:19:59.:20:04.

play their remaining games without fear. Do we think we can win? Yes,

:20:04.:20:13.

could do. If I am proved wrong, I know we will have had a go.

:20:13.:20:16.

Despite the chilly temperatures, it is the start of the cricket season

:20:16.:20:20.

today. The Woolies were out at Trent Bridge as Notts began their

:20:20.:20:22.

campaign against Worcestershire. The game won't have cheered them up

:20:23.:20:25.

much, Notts all out for 118, Worcestershire currently 127-9 in

:20:25.:20:28.

reply. At Grace Road, Leicestershire

:20:28.:20:34.

managed 249 in their first innings in their game against Glamorgan.

:20:34.:20:37.

And Derbyshire off to a good start against Northants, 286 for their

:20:37.:20:40.

first innings. The visitors 28-3 at close of play.

:20:40.:20:43.

Onto ice-hockey now, and it's play- off finals weekend in Nottingham

:20:43.:20:48.

and Panthers are in the mix once again. After securing their first

:20:48.:20:51.

piece of silverware, the Challenge Cup, last month, the question is,

:20:51.:21:01.
:21:01.:21:01.

can they do it again? Here's Paul. Lifting the trophy and lifting the

:21:01.:21:06.

roof at the National Ice Centre last season. And now Panthers'

:21:06.:21:11.

captain is hoping to do it or loathe regain this weekend. It is

:21:11.:21:15.

just a wonderful feeling for any player, no matter whether it is

:21:15.:21:19.

your first year or your last. You play ice hockey to win

:21:19.:21:23.

championships and to do it with these guys is great. This is by far

:21:23.:21:27.

the most professional team I have been a part of. They booked their

:21:28.:21:32.

place in the semi-final with a dramatic win and a player coach,

:21:32.:21:36.

Corey Neilsen, says his players have earned their place on the big

:21:36.:21:42.

stage. When we do what we do, we can score goals, and that is the

:21:42.:21:50.

message to the players. 30 times this season, we have won by three

:21:50.:21:57.

or more goals. So I told them, it is possible. This is the most

:21:57.:22:04.

successful tenure in Panthers' history. It would be nice to win

:22:04.:22:09.

the League. We have not won it for years and for many of us, it is the

:22:09.:22:14.

only championship we have not won. To finish a championship is always

:22:14.:22:18.

a great way to take this season and go into the summer. They will feel

:22:18.:22:23.

confident going into their game on Saturday having won at all meeting

:22:23.:22:31.

against the sting rays. The winners will play in the final on Sunday.

:22:31.:22:35.

So a busy weekend of Easter sport. Thank you.

:22:35.:22:38.

Next tonight, is your ideal weekend under the stars, just you and

:22:38.:22:42.

nature? If it is, you're not alone. It seems many people are learning

:22:42.:22:45.

how to survive with just the basics. In fact, bushcraft is now so

:22:45.:22:48.

popular, they're running courses on it in Nottinghamshire. So for this

:22:48.:22:51.

month's What's On guide, I went along to Sherwood Pines Forest Park

:22:51.:23:01.
:23:01.:23:10.

So, Mike bushcraft challenge begins with good work. I have already

:23:10.:23:14.

using this. Wow! It is perfectly safe. It is a keeping tool rather

:23:22.:23:32.
:23:32.:23:33.

than a splitting tool. Give it a good whack! Yeah! Yeah! Perfect!

:23:33.:23:37.

There are courses like this through the year learning shelter-building

:23:37.:23:42.

and fire-lighting. If you want to put your hand on there, please, and

:23:42.:23:48.

your right hand on the Boa... No weight on the bearing block.

:23:48.:23:56.

Just get the feel of it. Keep it going. Another 300! At Bosworth

:23:56.:24:00.

Battlefield, there is a day devoted to the countryside, with owl

:24:00.:24:07.

encounters and ferret racing. And why not let Sherwood Forest legend

:24:07.:24:10.

of Robin Hood take you on a tour of Nottingham? He will explain how he

:24:10.:24:19.

became a legend. OK, let's have a go at that... Just roll it round

:24:31.:24:41.
:24:41.:24:43.

bring in the flint and steel. On there... It is Easter weekend, so

there are plenty of egg hunts. A chance to solve Easter clues and

I don't believe him! Now for the Things really brightened up nicely

:25:49.:25:53.

during the day today but I don't think there will be an awful lot of

:25:53.:25:56.

brightness as we go through this Easter bank holiday weekend. For

:25:56.:26:01.

much of the time, it will be quite cloudy, and that will be thick

:26:01.:26:06.

enough to bring us some rain at times. So not too many pictures as

:26:06.:26:12.

lovely as this one. That cloud, which has been breaking up through

:26:12.:26:15.

the day, will continue to break up through this evening and things

will turn willy chilly with his blue shading, showing a widespread

frost, with temperatures in towns and cities down to freezing. The

clear conditions tonight are because of his nose of high

:26:29.:26:35.

pressure which has been dominating. It starts to slip away to the West

:26:35.:26:40.

and weather fronts come in from the North instead. That introduces more

:26:40.:26:45.

cloud and even a few light showers, particularly into the Peak District

:26:45.:26:50.

and down into parts of Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. Temperatures

:26:50.:26:54.

are at 11 degrees which will not feel too bad if you get into some

:26:54.:26:59.

sunshine. On Saturday, some light and patchy rain, probably drying up

:26:59.:27:05.

a bit in the afternoon. The odd brighter spell at 10, 11 degrees.

:27:05.:27:10.

It is a game of spot the difference with the odd dribble of rain and

:27:10.:27:16.

cloud from time to time. But then, as we had to the end of the weekend,

:27:16.:27:20.

another change. These weather fronts pylon from the Atlantic and

will gang up on top of us, bringing quite happy rain at times. --
