This is East Midlands Today with Anne Davies and me, Dominic Heale.

:00:04.:00:07.

Tonight: operations are cancelled for a second week at two of our

:00:07.:00:15.

busiest hospitals. Non-urgent operations are postponed

:00:15.:00:20.

in at Nottingham as medics as lacy prize in emergencies. I can only

:00:20.:00:25.

apologise to the patients and their families for the occurrence of an

:00:25.:00:29.

operation being cancelled. Last summer's disturbances, a man

:00:29.:00:32.

admits tried to burn down a police station.

:00:32.:00:38.

Of also denied: at remembering Sam, a teenage victim of cardiac arrest

:00:38.:00:43.

in the young. He lit his life to the follow and it is so said that

:00:43.:00:50.

he got -- society didn't get a chance to fulfil his dreams.

:00:50.:00:54.

Plus where the closure of this chain-store has caused fury among

:00:54.:01:04.
:01:04.:01:08.

Welcome to Monday's programme. First tonight: a hospital boss has

:01:08.:01:11.

apologised for the cancellation of hundreds of operations in

:01:11.:01:15.

Nottingham. Dr Peter Homa who's in charge of the Queen's Medical

:01:15.:01:18.

Centre and City Hospital, admits the disruption to patients' lives

:01:18.:01:23.

is unacceptable. It's a shortage of hospital beds

:01:23.:01:26.

that's causing many of the cancellations. But for patients

:01:26.:01:36.
:01:36.:01:36.

caught up in the delays, the situation can seem baffling.

:01:36.:01:40.

Third time unlucky, Geoff should have been getting ready for

:01:40.:01:44.

hospital today but an operation to treat the impact of cancer on her

:01:44.:01:49.

spine was put off again. It means he is still not walking as tall as

:01:49.:01:53.

he would like. High hopes dashed. It has not been music to his ears.

:01:53.:02:00.

He just want to get your life back together. You get yourself all

:02:00.:02:04.

geared up to have an operation and obviously, you are concerned and

:02:04.:02:08.

worried as to what that is going to be like. And then it is all

:02:08.:02:13.

cancelled so you seem to be at a loss. He is not the only one. 541

:02:13.:02:18.

operations have been cancelled this year. It was bad with 41 last week

:02:18.:02:22.

put off and 10 put off today. They included routine operations on a

:02:22.:02:28.

finger, a knee replacement and surgery to remove Lenin plant. The

:02:28.:02:31.

problem the hospital says is a surge in emergencies, leaving not

:02:31.:02:35.

enough beds for routine planned surgery. Today, the chief executive

:02:35.:02:41.

said sorry, admitting it is unacceptable. I can only apologise

:02:41.:02:45.

to the patients and families that have experienced the distressing

:02:45.:02:48.

occurrence of an operation being cancelled. All of the staff who

:02:48.:02:52.

work at the hospital understand intimately how upsetting that is.

:02:52.:02:57.

But I would like to say that all this within the hospital are

:02:57.:03:05.

working absolutely flat out to make sure the emergency and non- urgent

:03:05.:03:09.

cases receive an excellent service. The situation has been going on

:03:09.:03:13.

since the beginning of the year. When will it be sorted out? We are

:03:13.:03:16.

in the process of sorting it out. We have put additional beds in

:03:17.:03:22.

place. With some on the way, they hope things will East and the

:03:22.:03:32.
:03:32.:03:32.

situation is being reviewed daily. Nottingham is becoming a major

:03:32.:03:35.

trauma unit, the most serious injuries in the East Midlands will

:03:35.:03:41.

be dealt with a. The services being built up gradually. The hospital

:03:41.:03:44.

stresses that that is not having an impact on others. They say it is

:03:44.:03:49.

down to the usual emergencies coming through the door and a

:03:49.:03:53.

shortage of beds. Referred this has been going on for a long time so

:03:53.:03:57.

there is a lot of pressure to sort it out. -- we have heard.

:03:57.:04:01.

People who were expecting treatment tomorrow, what should they do?

:04:01.:04:05.

The latest news tonight is that seven operations, as least seven,

:04:05.:04:12.

have been cancelled tomorrow. Those patients have been counteracted --

:04:12.:04:16.

contacted by phone. But the duration could change but the

:04:16.:04:19.

advice this week is if you got their routine, planned operation

:04:19.:04:24.

coming up, to expect it to go ahead unless you here otherwise. But with

:04:24.:04:28.

the situation being reviewed daily, there could be more cancellations

:04:28.:04:33.

on the way, until this whole thing is sorted out.

:04:33.:04:36.

Next tonight, a Nottingham man has admitted trying to burn down a

:04:36.:04:38.

police station with petrol bombs. Curtis De Jean will be sentenced

:04:39.:04:42.

after 14 other men stand trial for rioting.

:04:42.:04:48.

Their case is due to begin tomorrow. Jeremy Ball has been at the Crown

:04:48.:04:51.

Court in Nottingham today. And he joins us from outside the City's

:04:51.:04:53.

Canning Circus police station which was damaged in the attack. Jeremy,

:04:53.:04:57.

tell us about Curtis De Jean. What did you hear about him at the court

:04:57.:05:04.

today? This afternoon, he admitted

:05:04.:05:07.

basically carrying out an arson attack which could have put lives

:05:08.:05:13.

in station. He also admitted a separate charge of carrying

:05:13.:05:16.

explosives of the court heard that involved him coming here with

:05:16.:05:21.

petrol bombs. This all emerged just as a jury was being sworn in this

:05:21.:05:25.

afternoon. And what does that Dury have to

:05:25.:05:29.

decide when the case does get started tomorrow?

:05:29.:05:33.

They are going to be hearing a case against 14 other men. This is a

:05:33.:05:37.

case against 14 men and boys who come from estates across the city

:05:37.:05:42.

of Nottingham. Today, we heard those 14 have all denied a charge

:05:42.:05:45.

of riot and there have also been accused of violent disorder. We

:05:45.:05:51.

have also heard that six of those 14 are also accused of involvement

:05:51.:05:53.

in an arson attack at Cannings circus.

:05:53.:05:57.

We were told at the time there was not officially any rioting in

:05:57.:06:02.

Nottingham. You will remember there was huge

:06:02.:06:06.

political controversy over this. The authorities in Nottingham have

:06:06.:06:12.

always existed -- insisted the trouble in the cystic -- city was

:06:12.:06:19.

not serious enough to be described as rioting. What has changed now is

:06:19.:06:23.

that the Crown Prosecution Service have looked at this case. They have

:06:23.:06:26.

decided that there could be enough evidence that there was rioting

:06:26.:06:30.

here. We have heard this is because at least 12 people are alleged to

:06:30.:06:33.

have been involved in this trouble together. We will get details

:06:33.:06:39.

tomorrow. Police are investigating the death

:06:39.:06:41.

of an 80-year-old woman at a Derbyshire care home after reports

:06:41.:06:45.

that a wardrobe may have fallen on her. Police were called to the

:06:45.:06:48.

Coach House Nursing Home in Milford near Belper on Easter Monday

:06:48.:06:52.

morning. A post-mortem examination was inconclusive, and police are

:06:52.:06:54.

now working with the Health and Safety Executive to investigate the

:06:54.:06:59.

death. Police are trying to trace party-

:06:59.:07:02.

goers at a hotel in Nottingham, after two people were injured by

:07:02.:07:07.

pellets. Officers were called to the Stage Hotel on Gregory

:07:07.:07:10.

Boulevard on Saturday night. A 17- year-old man and 36-year-old woman

:07:10.:07:16.

were found with minor leg injuries. Police say it's not yet clear what

:07:16.:07:21.

weapon fired the pellets. MPs are to discuss the future of

:07:21.:07:25.

the Midland Mainline tonight. A Commons debate is scheduled for

:07:25.:07:27.

this evening, with changes such as electrification and longer trains

:07:27.:07:35.

up for discussion. The leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, Kay

:07:35.:07:38.

Cutts, has written to eight local MPs asking for their support. The

:07:38.:07:41.

authority says improving the line would cut journey times to London

:07:41.:07:45.

and boost the local economy. Still to come on the programme: the

:07:45.:07:52.

latest in our occasional series on the health of our High Streets.

:07:52.:07:55.

The Prime Minister has launched the Conservative election campaign in

:07:55.:07:59.

Amber Valley. Is that a sign of the voters are about to swing against

:07:59.:08:09.
:08:09.:08:11.

Next tonight: it's official, the whole of the East Midlands has been

:08:11.:08:14.

declared a drought zone. There are no hosepipe bans in place

:08:14.:08:21.

yet because public supplies aren't affected. But rivers, streams and

:08:21.:08:23.

farms are showing signs of the driest 18 months since records

:08:23.:08:31.

began. These crops are safe from are

:08:31.:08:34.

growing at the moment but if the dry spell carries on, farmers could

:08:34.:08:40.

be in trouble. It means we are very low wall reserve water and crops

:08:40.:08:44.

are looking OK because they've had a bit of rain. But we know there is

:08:44.:08:48.

nothing down below at all. If the dry spell continues, there is

:08:48.:08:51.

nothing down there to feed the crops and it could get very serious.

:08:51.:08:55.

What is happening here is happening across the East Midlands. In the

:08:55.:09:00.

last two months alone, there have has just been 40 % of the average

:09:00.:09:03.

rainfall and in the last 18 months, it has been the driest since

:09:03.:09:10.

records began. The rain we've had of late is too little, too late.

:09:10.:09:13.

What we are urging people to do over the summer is be wise with

:09:13.:09:23.

their water used. It is not just fish that will suffer. Back at the

:09:23.:09:28.

farm and for John, the drug could be costly. If we don't get the

:09:28.:09:38.
:09:38.:09:41.

reins, the other crops suffer and this could be very expensive for us.

:09:41.:09:45.

We are talking about an environmental drought. It is a risk

:09:45.:09:50.

to the environment, not the water supply. If we are wise with our

:09:50.:09:54.

water use, we avoid the possibility of getting one next year.

:09:54.:09:58.

advice for all of us is save water now in the hope that things will

:09:58.:10:07.

not get worse in the future. The Prime Minister was in the East

:10:07.:10:09.

Midlands today to kick-start the Conservatives' local election

:10:09.:10:12.

campaign. He spoke to activists in Amber Valley, where the Tories face

:10:12.:10:22.
:10:22.:10:30.

a strong challenge from Labour. After his Far East tour last week,

:10:30.:10:34.

to he was an Alfred will. Inside the committee centre, there was a

:10:34.:10:39.

noticeable lack of the exotica, just a platform of LEA eager --

:10:39.:10:43.

eager Amber Valley candidates hoping to get elected.

:10:43.:10:47.

Traditionally, Amber Valley is classic swing territory but for the

:10:47.:10:51.

last 12 years it has been safely held by the Conservatives has to be

:10:51.:10:55.

third of seats are being contested here on 3rd May and the Prime

:10:55.:11:01.

Minister's visit may indicate some party jitters. This is the real

:11:01.:11:05.

heart of England, because of hard work, independent minds and strong

:11:05.:11:10.

communities. But the trouble with independently minded voters is they

:11:10.:11:15.

might not always vote for you. have frozen the council tax as

:11:15.:11:18.

Labour half oppose that council tax freeze. There are many Conservative

:11:18.:11:21.

councils I could choose from but here we are, in the heart of the

:11:21.:11:25.

country, a councillor is giving good value for money. We need to

:11:25.:11:28.

help them with their family budgets and the council tax freezes a good

:11:28.:11:32.

way to do that. 25 miles away in Nottingham, Labour were unveiling

:11:33.:11:36.

their poster campaign to urge voters to reject the Prime

:11:36.:11:39.

Minister's ambitions for a directly elected mayor. The referendum is

:11:39.:11:43.

also being held on May 3rd. At the number Valley, that prompted a

:11:44.:11:48.

further round of bashing of Nottingham Labour. The only council

:11:48.:11:52.

that will not be transparent, that's right, Labour controlled not

:11:52.:11:56.

ago. Let's take that argument for transparency out around the country.

:11:56.:12:01.

Afterwards, the prime minister warmed to his theme. I hope people

:12:01.:12:04.

in Nottingham will vote for a mayor, someone who can give great

:12:04.:12:09.

leadership. Mayors are a good way to have proper accountability and

:12:09.:12:13.

to have real leadership in our cities. The Tory faithful left

:12:13.:12:18.

feeling upbeat, after all it has not heard -- every day you get a

:12:18.:12:24.

Prime Minister at your local election launch.

:12:24.:12:27.

A family says people need to be more aware of the risk of

:12:27.:12:32.

potentially fatal heart problems in young people.

:12:32.:12:35.

The parents of Sam Wright from Derby were speaking at a charity

:12:35.:12:37.

event in memory of the 19-year-old, who died suddenly just before

:12:38.:12:42.

Christmas. The event was to highlight the

:12:42.:12:45.

shocking statistic that 12 under- 35s a week die in Britain from

:12:45.:12:55.
:12:55.:12:58.

often undiagnosed heart problems. A few moments of enjoyment at a

:12:58.:13:02.

fundraiser for Elaine Wright, Kevin Wright and their remaining son,

:13:02.:13:06.

Mark. They helped helps organise the event in Derby it as -- in

:13:06.:13:09.

memory of their son had died suddenly just before Christmas, on

:13:09.:13:13.

his return home from a run. Sam's friends remember him as full of

:13:13.:13:18.

life. He was a lot of fun. I don't know, it's weird not having him

:13:18.:13:23.

about now because this would have been one of the things he would

:13:23.:13:25.

have turned up to and would have been running around doing

:13:25.:13:29.

everything. If there was anyone who lived their life to the fullest, it

:13:29.:13:35.

was some and it is sad he never got the chance to fulfil his dreams.

:13:35.:13:39.

During the busy event, a moment of reflection as well for the family.

:13:39.:13:43.

Some had been a lifeguard and instructor at the Seoul poll and a

:13:43.:13:51.

keen sportsman. 12 young and fit help the people are dying every

:13:51.:13:57.

week and it is terrible. The family says the recent case in the

:13:57.:14:03.

football world highlights how, on these problems are. This has helped

:14:03.:14:07.

increase awareness and hope it will help save more people. They also

:14:07.:14:13.

believe greater public access to Diouf liberators could start --

:14:13.:14:18.

help those like Reece Geoffrey who died last year. If we could get

:14:18.:14:22.

more people aware of it and hopefully save more lives.

:14:22.:14:29.

fund-raising event raised over �7,000 for a charity but the rights

:14:29.:14:33.

hope that if publicity hope -- helps one more family avoid the

:14:33.:14:43.
:14:43.:14:50.

pain they've suffered, Sam's death will not be entirely in vain.

:14:50.:14:53.

Next tonight - more on our occasional series The Street where

:14:53.:14:56.

we follow the fortunes of three shopping areas in the East Midlands.

:14:56.:14:59.

Tonight we're back in Beeston which is seeing big changes as

:14:59.:15:01.

Nottingham's tram network is extended through the town.

:15:01.:15:04.

The works are forcing the closure of a high street chain store. And

:15:04.:15:10.

that's provoked a furious response. Removing what's left of Wilkinson's

:15:10.:15:15.

in Beeston. You may not believe this chain-store could provoke such

:15:15.:15:19.

strong emotion but its closure has stoked up fury in this town. The

:15:19.:15:22.

building is being demolished to make way for the extension to

:15:22.:15:27.

Nottingham's tram network. The stores shut this weekend, despite

:15:27.:15:31.

2000 residents signing a position demanding that the store remained.

:15:31.:15:36.

It is going to be like a ghost town here. I cannot imagine life without

:15:36.:15:45.

it. I can imagine life without the tram. Wilkinson's is a part of

:15:45.:15:49.

everybody's everyday life. Every time he went in the store, it was

:15:49.:15:56.

for. Everybody is going to miss this door. Everybody unspoken

:15:56.:16:01.

doesn't want the tram. Nobody is in favour of the tram. Nobody.

:16:02.:16:06.

source of support for the tram does exist in the form of councillor,

:16:06.:16:10.

Steve Barber. It's terrible, a disaster that they are chosen to

:16:10.:16:14.

close at this stage, when they could have relocated. It had a

:16:14.:16:23.

number of years to get their act together. It is not the trams fault.

:16:23.:16:28.

The tram is an easy scapegoat. what of Wilkinson's future? It is

:16:28.:16:31.

not looking hopeful. The company says it has genuinely been

:16:31.:16:35.

overwhelmed by the strength of feeling expressed by customers but

:16:35.:16:40.

it says in spite of best efforts, it hasn't found anywhere that is

:16:40.:16:50.
:16:50.:16:53.

suitable, where it can relocate. First tonight, all of our

:16:54.:16:56.

Championship teams went into the weekends fixtures with something to

:16:56.:16:59.

play for, but only one of them came out with anything! Leicester City

:16:59.:17:02.

and Derby were hoping to strengthen their bid for the play-offs, while

:17:02.:17:10.

Forest were looking to distance themselves from the relegation zone.

:17:10.:17:16.

Leicester were looking for three points that the new stadium to

:17:16.:17:26.
:17:26.:17:28.

bolster their hopes. But things didn't go to plan. Daniel

:17:28.:17:34.

Drinkwater brought one back but they only have three games left.

:17:34.:17:38.

We've been playing catch-up for a while so we need a lot to go for us

:17:38.:17:43.

and we got to win our remaining games. It is a tough call but it

:17:44.:17:48.

today is disappointing. It was a similar story at Derby, whose own

:17:48.:17:53.

hopes for making the play-offs were left remote, after this goal.

:17:53.:17:57.

was a brilliant finish. The lad has come on, put his head down and

:17:57.:18:01.

smashed the ball and hit the target. It's something I wish one of our

:18:01.:18:05.

players would have done. We've had similar situations, if not better

:18:05.:18:10.

ones, and failed to do that. Better news for the Reds who picked up a

:18:10.:18:15.

potentially vital home. Against Blackpool. Forest are now seven

:18:15.:18:20.

points clear of the drop zone. Blackpool are a tough nut to crack.

:18:20.:18:25.

There are good team. The counter- attack very well. We knew it was

:18:25.:18:28.

going to be a tough game but we thought probably we deserved the

:18:28.:18:32.

three points. While major issues for our

:18:32.:18:35.

Championship clubs are all but settled, League One Notts County

:18:35.:18:38.

will see the drama continue to the end of the season. And hopefully

:18:38.:18:42.

beyond. The Magpies are in a battle to get the final playoff spot. The

:18:42.:18:52.
:18:52.:19:00.

competition is Carlisle, Stevenage Notts have been out of the

:19:00.:19:04.

championship for 17 years. Their journey back, heavily rests on this

:19:04.:19:08.

game, against a team who won play- off rivals and breathing down their

:19:08.:19:14.

necks on a potential road to Wembley. So, Keith, what you

:19:14.:19:18.

normally do on the bus on the way to the ground? Watch a bit of

:19:18.:19:28.
:19:28.:19:36.

football. It is a big day today. A lot of them are coming around to

:19:36.:19:46.
:19:46.:19:51.

him and appreciate his style of I was allowed to sit on the bench

:19:51.:20:01.
:20:01.:20:08.

with my own, tiny camera, and we The view from the away dug-out is

:20:08.:20:13.

actually the worst in the house. But the pace of the game looks so

:20:13.:20:20.

much faster close-up. There are minutes to go now and if not can

:20:20.:20:24.

come on, this would be a brilliant... As the clock ran down,

:20:25.:20:28.

Damian Stuart headed a free kick off the line to give them the press

:20:28.:20:36.

that advantage -- precious advantage.

:20:36.:20:39.

You can see a longer version of that report on tonight's Late Kick

:20:39.:20:41.

Off, together with extended highlights from the Championship.

:20:41.:20:44.

Former Leicester and Forest man Stan Collymore is on the sofa too.

:20:44.:20:47.

One last bit of football news before we move on. Well done to

:20:47.:20:50.

Mansfield Town, who have secured their spot in the Blue Square

:20:50.:20:53.

Premier play-offs. A return to the Football League perhaps just three

:20:53.:20:55.

games away. Some sporting teams just have the

:20:55.:20:58.

knack of timing their runs of form perfectly. So it is with Leicester

:20:58.:21:01.

Tigers. If you want to win Rugby's Premiership, the secret is to

:21:01.:21:08.

finish strongly. Tigers are going so well, they're setting records.

:21:08.:21:12.

The game at Northampton Saints could have been really tough.

:21:12.:21:16.

Usually a feisty local derby between teams close in the

:21:16.:21:26.
:21:26.:21:39.

standings. Instead, Tigers maul at With all of that in mind, they were

:21:39.:21:42.

not going to leave Franklins Gardens without getting on the

:21:42.:21:48.

scoreboard. The try was quality. Five bonus wins on the trot, a new

:21:48.:21:53.

record, as was the scoreline. And Nottingham Rugby did all they

:21:53.:21:56.

could do by posting a bonus point win at Doncaster. But it wasn't

:21:56.:21:59.

enough and they're out of the Championship playoffs race with a

:21:59.:22:03.

game left to play. Nottingham Canoist and Olympic

:22:03.:22:05.

Silver Medal winner David Florence has qualified for the London

:22:05.:22:09.

Olympics in two events. Some time back Florence set himself the

:22:09.:22:12.

target of making history by winning Olympic medals both on his own and

:22:12.:22:15.

as a pair with partner Richard Hounslow. Some brilliant racing in

:22:16.:22:18.

the qualification event at Lee Valley means that he's still on

:22:18.:22:24.

track to do it. Not so great in the Kayak for Campbell Walsh, though.

:22:24.:22:28.

Distressed and angry with himself for missing out.

:22:28.:22:31.

The pressure was on the former Nottingham Doctor Tim Brabants at

:22:31.:22:34.

the weekend. He won gold in Beijing but has struggled with form after

:22:34.:22:38.

injury and still has to qualify for London. So it's down to a best of

:22:38.:22:41.

three race-off and Brabants, in the blue, held off his rival Paul

:22:41.:22:44.

Wycherley by three one hundreths of a second in the first contest at

:22:44.:22:54.

Holme Pierrepont and become national champion. The pressure is

:22:54.:22:58.

on. It is unimportant here, an Olympic year. I'm feeling strong

:22:58.:23:03.

now and looking forward to the Olympics. Have been watching people

:23:03.:23:06.

qualify in the other sports and I want to be one of those people

:23:06.:23:10.

wearing the GB kit. And the next race-off is in May.

:23:10.:23:13.

Couple of final things to mention: In cricket there's been a flying

:23:13.:23:15.

start to the County Championship for both Nottinghamshire, who are

:23:15.:23:18.

on top of Division One, and Derbyshire, on top of Division two.

:23:18.:23:21.

Both two games, two wins. And in Hockey, Leicester Ladies are

:23:21.:23:25.

national outdoor Champions after beating Reading this weekend. Sadly

:23:25.:23:27.

Beeston's men couldn't match them. They went out in the semi-finals.

:23:27.:23:30.

But that's a brilliant performance by Leicester's women. Outdoor and

:23:30.:23:36.

indoor champs this season. Continuing with a sporting theme

:23:36.:23:40.

really and a look ahead to the London Marathon next weekend and a

:23:40.:23:44.

remarkable woman who's going to be breaking a few records. Yes, Karen

:23:44.:23:47.

Hodgson from Derbyshire needed a new heart in 2006 after suffering

:23:47.:23:54.

from cardiomyopathy. Now she's on track to become the first woman

:23:54.:23:57.

heart transplant patient to ever run in the big event as Tom Brown

:23:57.:24:05.

reports. Today, she is looking forward to

:24:05.:24:09.

her first marathon but looking back, Carole Hodgson knows this they may

:24:09.:24:14.

never have come. I was told I had about a year to live. One year to

:24:14.:24:21.

18 months. I went on to the transplant waiting list. That was a

:24:21.:24:26.

very nerve-racking time because I knew that a lot of people don't

:24:26.:24:33.

make it but I was very lucky. And here I am now, a week away from the

:24:33.:24:37.

big day. I cannot believe it. lived with cardiomyopathy for more

:24:37.:24:42.

than 15 years. She doesn't know who donated her new hardback in 2006

:24:42.:24:46.

but they remain her biggest motivation. I feel I owe it to the

:24:46.:24:51.

person now as well, but as well of the big reasons why a exercise and

:24:51.:24:56.

from, because that kind person signed up so I could have this

:24:56.:25:00.

chance. I want to make the most of it. It has been a long journeys is

:25:00.:25:03.

the day of the transplant but now for Karen and her husband, the

:25:03.:25:08.

finishing line is inside. She is running it for the donor and for

:25:08.:25:14.

her family so it is going to be quite overwhelming. I think there

:25:14.:25:17.

are going to be lots of shoulders to cry on at the end. A mixture of

:25:17.:25:22.

relief and exhaustion and gratitude. It is something I never thought I

:25:22.:25:32.
:25:32.:25:38.

would be able to do. Things are changing tonight and

:25:38.:25:42.

we've got a wet week in store. It might be a band of rain or it could

:25:42.:25:46.

also be showers as well, on and off towards the end of the week. We

:25:46.:25:50.

will keep a close eye on the area of clothes -- I pressure coming in.

:25:50.:25:55.

This was the shot first thing and thank you to Geoff for sending the

:25:55.:26:02.

sin. We have got wet and windy weather on the way tonight. There

:26:02.:26:05.

is an area of low pressure starting to move towards the country and it

:26:05.:26:08.

will produce a band of rain and some very strong winds across the

:26:08.:26:13.

East Midlands as it comes towards the east. But the moment, we still

:26:13.:26:16.

got the broken cloud with us but it will gradually start to increase

:26:16.:26:19.

during the latter part of the evening. Then you'll start to see

:26:19.:26:22.

that rain coming through into the early hours of the morning. That is

:26:22.:26:26.

when the wind will also start to strengthen. A strong and gusty

:26:26.:26:31.

south-westerly wind. Gusts of up to 40 mph as that rain band works its

:26:31.:26:35.

way eastwards. A minimum temperature tonight of four Celsius.

:26:35.:26:38.

We are still around during the rush hour period tomorrow morning so a

:26:38.:26:42.

lot of surface water and spray and gusty winds as well. As it clears

:26:42.:26:46.

the way eastwards, it leaves us with Sky's stars into Brighton but

:26:46.:26:48.

there will be further blustery showers coming through. It will be

:26:49.:26:54.

one of those wet and windy days with a little bit of sunshine. A

:26:54.:26:57.

maximum daytime temperature of 12 Celsius. There is another wet day

:26:57.:27:00.

on Wednesday. A band of rain pushing its way northwards

:27:00.:27:04.

throughout the daytime. The wind is not quite a strong on Wednesday so

:27:04.:27:08.

that rain band a little bit slow moving but it is much needed. We

:27:08.:27:12.

are going to stay quiet and subtle as well as we get closer to the

:27:12.:27:15.

weekend. The temperatures what they should be for the time of year.

:27:15.:27:18.

Once the rain band clears on Wednesday leaving us with a showery

:27:18.:27:21.

theme again for Thursday and Friday, a little bit nippy at night time

:27:22.:27:31.
