This is East Midlands Today. Our top story, the great housing market

:00:06.:00:12.

price drop. As property values hit the bottom, we meet the homeowners

:00:12.:00:15.

who can't sell. I bought the property five years ago and it has

:00:15.:00:19.

been on the market six months. I haven't been able to sell it yet.

:00:19.:00:24.

Plus, a second day of strike action by some teachers in Nottingham.

:00:24.:00:28.

Campaigning against plans for a five term school year. Also tonight,

:00:28.:00:33.

we are in Japan, with adventurer Sarah Outen. It is cold, it is wet,

:00:33.:00:40.

and she is in training to become the first woman to row the north

:00:40.:00:45.

Pacific oaks. And from a shoe factory to Holloway Prison. How

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:01:01.

Alice Hawkins helped change history. Hello. Good evening, welcome to

:01:01.:01:05.

Tuesday's programme. First tonight, the dramatic fall in house prices

:01:05.:01:08.

here in the East Midlands. Some homes in our region have lost more

:01:08.:01:13.

than a quarter of their value since the economic downturn and it is

:01:13.:01:16.

people in the cheapest homes who are facing the biggest losses if

:01:16.:01:21.

they want to move up the ladder. Dominic has the statistics that

:01:21.:01:27.

show how the housing bubble has burst. Well, Easter, traditionally

:01:27.:01:31.

signals a surge in house buying but the last five years have been far

:01:31.:01:35.

from traditional. Let us take a loot at what has happened in that

:01:35.:01:39.

time. -- look. Here in 2007, the market was riding high, of course

:01:39.:01:45.

the downturn hadn't yet started. Then, the average price of a house

:01:45.:01:50.

in the East Midlands was �143,000. Today, according to the Land

:01:50.:01:56.

Registry that has fall into �124,000. A drop of just over 13%.

:01:56.:02:01.

Now within that drop, some types of home have fared worse than others.

:02:01.:02:06.

For data on that we can turn to the Halifax, which issued its latest

:02:06.:02:10.

figures the East Midlands a few days ago. These are average price.

:02:10.:02:16.

Detached houses have seen the smallest drop in five years, at 9%.

:02:16.:02:22.

A semi has seen prices drop by 17%. Bungalow, they have gone down by

:02:22.:02:27.

about the same. Flats and maisonettes are down by more, round

:02:27.:02:32.

21%. But over the last five years the biggest drop by far, has been

:02:32.:02:39.

in the value of terraced houses. A staggering 26%. Serious number, but

:02:39.:02:47.

what does it mean for homeowners? Hello I am Hayley, and I am a

:02:47.:02:51.

schools arts administrator. This is my two bedroom property. I bought

:02:51.:02:55.

the property five years ago. It has been on the market six months and I

:02:55.:03:01.

haven't been able to sell it yet. I bought the property five years ago

:03:02.:03:08.

and paid �138,000. I have been forced to put it on offers round

:03:08.:03:12.

�130,000. This is my estate agent Mark. Mark, is my situation

:03:13.:03:17.

unusual? Unfortunately it is not. Like yourself, a lot of people

:03:17.:03:21.

bought five to six years ago at the peak. Now we are at the bottom so

:03:21.:03:24.

people are struggling to get back their initial investment. Do you

:03:24.:03:28.

see any improvement in the market? We are seeing early signs of

:03:28.:03:32.

improvement. There is more buyers round than last year, and the sales

:03:32.:03:35.

prices are beginning to increase but nothing substantial at the

:03:36.:03:40.

moment. I would like to sell the house as soon as possible, because

:03:40.:03:43.

me and my partner will looking to buy a house together. But I do

:03:43.:03:47.

worry if I have to drop the price any lower I will fall into negative

:03:47.:03:54.

equity. Well only today the Office for National Statistics said there

:03:54.:03:57.

had been zero increase in East Midlands house prices in the past

:03:57.:04:02.

12 months so what is being done to stimulate the market? Our reporter

:04:02.:04:08.

has been to the unveiling of a scheme which uses tax payers' money

:04:08.:04:15.

to get things moving. The town of ar nold. Buying a property here

:04:15.:04:21.

will probably cost a first time buyer round �100,000. Now the

:04:21.:04:25.

council's teamed up with a bank to offer first-time buyers a helping

:04:25.:04:30.

hand. Help with one of the biggest hurdles. The deposit. And offer

:04:30.:04:35.

this first time buyer has snapped up. When we found out we could get

:04:35.:04:39.

this whole scheme involved, we had to go for it because there is no

:04:39.:04:43.

way we could have done it. council has borrowed �1 million

:04:43.:04:47.

from the Government. It will lodged with Lloyds and eastern money from

:04:47.:04:53.

the council. First time buyer also have to get a deposit of 5%, up to

:04:53.:05:00.

a limit of �120,000. The council will then guarantee up to 20% of

:05:00.:05:04.

the cost. What it will give when you are saving and you think I just

:05:04.:05:08.

need that little bit extra, that bit extra to give me the do po it

:05:08.:05:12.

is. So where is it coming from? This this case you can turn to the

:05:12.:05:16.

council is there a chance. I wouldn't be able to afford one. It

:05:16.:05:21.

is nice for people to get a helping hand. It is council money. It

:05:21.:05:25.

should be spent on other things. The only way I managed to get on

:05:25.:05:28.

the ladder was with some inheritance, other than that I

:05:28.:05:32.

would have found it very difficult. We recognise the challenges people

:05:32.:05:37.

face, a lot of people will call on their parents, or just they might

:05:37.:05:44.

be renting and are trying to save, and it is difficult to raise the

:05:44.:05:48.

standard 10% deposit. There will be a big demand from first-time buyers

:05:48.:05:56.

and there is only enough top help round 45 of them. -- to help. A

:05:56.:06:01.

short time ago I spoke to Josh Miller. He is a senior economist,

:06:01.:06:04.

at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. I began by asking him

:06:04.:06:09.

whether the house prices were good or bad for the region. It depends

:06:09.:06:12.

on who you are talking about. For those who are wishing to get on the

:06:13.:06:17.

housing ladder it is probably a good thing, because it makes house

:06:17.:06:20.

morgue accessible. For those wishing to get off the housing

:06:20.:06:24.

ladder it is not such a good thing. When they sell they won't

:06:24.:06:27.

necessarily receive as much. So it is more about a distribution of

:06:27.:06:31.

wealth. Does this mean the market is static because nobody wants to

:06:31.:06:35.

sell? I don't think the market is that static. It is certainly more

:06:35.:06:42.

static than say at the peak of the boom, but sales levels have

:06:42.:06:46.

recovered somewhat. But is it a reflection of the whole country or

:06:46.:06:50.

are we worse. The trends have been similar over the last four years so

:06:50.:06:55.

house prices are down about 20% below their 2007 peak and that is

:06:55.:06:59.

the same for the UK as a whole. Over the last few years, in both

:06:59.:07:02.

the UK and the East Midlands house prices have been bumping along the

:07:02.:07:06.

bottom. That is how I would characterise it. What do you think

:07:06.:07:13.

for the next 12 months? I think over the next 12 months we will see

:07:13.:07:19.

more bumping along the bottom. The riskedst are skewed to the down

:07:19.:07:23.

side. Beyond the next 12 month, I think that the picture is a bit

:07:23.:07:26.

brighter. The economy should have gained a bit more traction, that

:07:26.:07:29.

should feed through to the labour market and in turn the housing

:07:29.:07:33.

market. Well, light at the end of the tunnel. That is a good place to

:07:33.:07:40.

leave it. Thank you. Still to come. The ups and downs of the weather..

:07:40.:07:44.

It has been one of those days where the brolly has been up one minute

:07:44.:07:48.

and down the next. We have more rain to come this week, with slow-

:07:48.:07:51.

moving showers for tomorrow. More for you towards the end of the

:07:51.:08:01.
:08:01.:08:03.

programme. In other news, eight people have admitted taking part in

:08:03.:08:07.

an outbreak of violence that included the firebombing of a

:08:07.:08:10.

Nottingham police station. Today 21-year-old Reiss Wilson pleaded

:08:10.:08:13.

guilty to an arson attack, another man has admitted taking petrol

:08:13.:08:19.

bombs to the building at Canning Circus. The six Hoare others who

:08:20.:08:23.

admitted involvement include these men, Lucas Stapleton and Ashton

:08:23.:08:27.

Alexander. Nottingham City Hospital has been ordered to pay at least �6

:08:27.:08:31.

million in compensation to a boy left brain damaged. He was starved

:08:31.:08:35.

of oxygen at birst. He can't be named for legal reasons. He suffers

:08:35.:08:38.

from cerebral palsy, learning difficulties and problems with

:08:38.:08:44.

speech and feeding T high court heard the hospital made a full and

:08:44.:08:47.

unreserved apology. Plans to create a new football backed free school

:08:47.:08:52.

in Derby will be discussed tonight. Derby County has been given the go-

:08:52.:08:55.

ahead to run the academy along with Derby Moor Community School. It

:08:55.:09:00.

will take up to 50 pupils who have been excluded from other schools.

:09:00.:09:03.

Yuenjiens nearby referral units could suffer if peoples follow the

:09:03.:09:11.

lure of football. Striking teachers in Nottingham marched into a

:09:11.:09:16.

council's HQ demanding a meeting with councillors. Members of the

:09:16.:09:19.

National Union of Teachers are angry about plans to introduce a

:09:19.:09:23.

five term school year. The City Council insists that the move will

:09:24.:09:30.

improve education. A second day of strike action by teachers unhappy

:09:30.:09:34.

with plans for a shorter summer break in Nottingham, with a five

:09:34.:09:38.

term academic year. The City Council say the strike closed 15

:09:38.:09:44.

schools and affect my Lord than 30 others. -- affected more.

:09:44.:09:48.

believe it would be a terrible thing for the schools. I am

:09:48.:09:53.

concerned that the terms will be so long, they will be eight or nine

:09:53.:09:56.

weeks, and we had an eight week half-term before Christmas, and the

:09:56.:10:01.

children were so tired, it was a waste of time them being there.

:10:01.:10:05.

They were beyond it. Parents are divide on whether a five term year

:10:05.:10:10.

is a good thing. One problem for some families is the surrounding

:10:10.:10:15.

council has no plans to adopt the same system, which could cause

:10:15.:10:21.

problems for some. We think people, this is a better work life balance

:10:21.:10:25.

for both those working in schools and for those learning in them.

:10:25.:10:28.

you have any up-to-date evidence that is a good thing? We have

:10:28.:10:31.

evidence from a number of places that the summer holiday is too long,

:10:31.:10:35.

particularly for children in homes where there isn't a lot of money

:10:35.:10:39.

round to go on holidays and children often spend the whole of

:10:39.:10:42.

it in the street where they live, not being stimulate and go

:10:42.:10:47.

backwards in their learning. Earlier there had been pickets at -

:10:47.:10:52.

- pickets at school gates. Only two NUT members were on this picket

:10:52.:10:56.

line before they joined the larger protest. They decided to go into

:10:56.:11:00.

the council offices. In fact the councillor in charge of education

:11:00.:11:04.

wasn't there. I don't think piling into reception is necessarily going

:11:04.:11:09.

to make the case for them. Both sides in the dispute are due to

:11:09.:11:16.

meet tomorrow. Next tonight motorists in Leicestershire and

:11:16.:11:21.

Rutland are being warned to ex paegt -- expect delays ahead of a

:11:21.:11:26.

rer her sal for the Olympic torch relay. It will take place on Friday

:11:26.:11:29.

morning and simulate what will happen when the torch arrives here

:11:29.:11:35.

for real in July. Victoria join us from the National Space Centre in

:11:35.:11:39.

Leicester. Good evening Victoria. Good evening. It is all very quiet

:11:39.:11:43.

here tonight, but at 7.10 on Friday morning, things will be really

:11:43.:11:47.

different. Because this is where it will all begin. The rehearsal for

:11:47.:11:52.

the him -- Olympic torch relay. Let me give you an idea of what things

:11:52.:11:57.

will look like. There will be a rolling convoif 15 vehicles. Up to

:11:57.:12:01.

450 Olympic organisers will come here and there will be more than

:12:01.:12:07.

100 people who will walk or run with the flame over the 80 stretch.

:12:07.:12:10.

Delays on the road are inevitable so let me give you an idea the

:12:10.:12:15.

route it will take. From here, it will travel along the golden mile,

:12:15.:12:20.

and head up to the great central railway where it will travel to

:12:20.:12:23.

Quorn. From Quorn, it will head to Loughborough and on to the

:12:23.:12:28.

university. Then, it is on to Melton, Oakham and across Rutland

:12:28.:12:34.

Water by boat. The torch relay will head to Uppingham. Arriving at

:12:35.:12:38.

Burghley House before finishing in Peterborough by Friday evening. Now

:12:38.:12:42.

this is the only rehearsal of the torch relay taking place across the

:12:42.:12:46.

country. The reason it is here is because of the complexities of the

:12:46.:12:49.

route. It is a chance for the organising committee to put two

:12:49.:12:54.

years of planning to the test.. have a range of transport modes

:12:54.:12:58.

that are taking place and we pass through 12 communities along the

:12:58.:13:02.

route before we arrive into Peterborough. So we have a train

:13:02.:13:07.

moment taking place on the great central railway. We have a flame

:13:07.:13:10.

exchange happening on Rutland Water and we are on the people in valley

:13:10.:13:14.

rail way. It is challenging and there is a lot for us to be exposed

:13:14.:13:19.

to. So look out for the yellow signs along the route warning about

:13:19.:13:24.

delays and avoid them if you can. There won't be a flame on the day

:13:24.:13:27.

and organisers are not encouraging people to line the route. It is a

:13:27.:13:31.

rehearsal. We will cover the event and we will cover the event for

:13:31.:13:38.

real when it happens on July 3rd. Traders in Market Harborough have

:13:38.:13:43.

been given fresh hope they may not be forced to move. There have been

:13:43.:13:46.

widespread protests about the council's plans to release the

:13:46.:13:51.

market hall to a large retailer and to move traders out doors. Now a

:13:51.:13:55.

report commissioned by the council says there maybe scope to keep the

:13:55.:13:59.

market where it is, if it is made more commercially viable. Work is

:13:59.:14:04.

getting under way to rebuild two schools in Leicester at a costing

:14:04.:14:07.

of �48 million. They are Crown Hills Community College and the

:14:07.:14:10.

city of Leicester school. The City Council is one of a handful to

:14:10.:14:15.

secure the cash from the former Building Schools for the Future

:14:15.:14:19.

programme. The UK's biggest industrial auction has been taking

:14:19.:14:24.

place in less shire today. In total almost 700 lots have been going

:14:24.:14:29.

under the hammer. Equipment on sale included trucks, forklift and other

:14:29.:14:34.

plant equipment. Buyers have been coming to the sale from all over

:14:34.:14:38.

the world. Extraordinary sight really. You are watching East

:14:38.:14:43.

Midlands Today. An Sarah Outen is one year into her epic expedition

:14:43.:14:47.

travelling round the world by bike, kayak and rowing boat. The Rutland

:14:47.:14:51.

rower is in final preparation for the most dangerous part of the

:14:51.:14:57.

voyage. She is about to row solo across the north Pacific

:14:57.:15:01.

association oaks. She has been training in Japan and will set off

:15:01.:15:06.

later this week. Sarah teal travelled to Tokyo to meet her. One

:15:06.:15:15.

woman, and heroing boat. This is sar Sarah Outen at her happiest.;

:15:15.:15:21.

just out for a paddle in rougher stuff which is good fuf fun. The

:15:21.:15:25.

26-year-old is in final preparations for her record

:15:25.:15:31.

breaking attempt to solo row the north Pacific Ocean from Japan to

:15:31.:15:39.

Canada. 4 300 nautical miles of dangerous seas. Rowing night and

:15:39.:15:45.

day it will take her up to six months. Bye! This is one of Sarah's

:15:45.:15:49.

training days and as you can see it is windy it is werbgts it is cold.

:15:49.:15:54.

And these are just some of the conditions she is going to have to

:15:54.:15:58.

face out at sea on her voyage. is choppy here, we got a sense of

:15:58.:16:02.

seeing you out there. You are up and down, what is going to be like

:16:02.:16:07.

all the way out at sea? Different to that. This is like small chop.

:16:08.:16:13.

You will get rolling waves as big as the trees, and then on top of

:16:13.:16:18.

that you will get wind waves which can be much smaller. But still as

:16:18.:16:22.

tall as a three storey building, and it is when they start crashing

:16:22.:16:31.

they get tricky. That today, no problem. The one question everyone

:16:31.:16:36.

asks is why she wants to do it? I do it because I love the challenge,

:16:36.:16:39.

the excitement, the adventure, the new opportunities. That feeling of

:16:39.:16:45.

not quite knowing if you are going to make it. Sar Rees attempting to

:16:45.:16:49.

loop the globe from London to London using only human power.

:16:49.:16:54.

Cycling, kayaking and rowing, all the way round the world. The first

:16:54.:17:00.

leg saw her cycle 11,000 miles to reach Japan. The second leg, the

:17:00.:17:05.

Pacific Ocean is treacherous. Only two men have ever bn before rowed

:17:05.:17:10.

this ocean, no woman has ever attempted it. This is incredibly

:17:10.:17:15.

dangerous. Others have failed, others have died. How much do you

:17:15.:17:20.

think about that before you set off? You are out in an ocean, which

:17:20.:17:26.

is changed and dynamic and volatile and dangerous at times. So, I try

:17:26.:17:31.

not to think about the scary stuff, or you know the chance of things

:17:31.:17:35.

going wrong. I have looked at it. Dealt with it for now. There will

:17:35.:17:40.

be times when I have to face it out there, when I am face to face with

:17:40.:17:46.

a dangerous situation, but... You know, just hope for the best.

:17:46.:17:51.

Without a doubt Sarah knows she is facing her most daunting challenge

:17:51.:17:55.

to date. Out there it will be tough. Not just because of the wind but at

:17:55.:17:59.

times it will be cold, I am going to be by myself and that has

:17:59.:18:03.

challenges and so on. I am expecting the Pacific to be the

:18:03.:18:07.

toughest thing I have done. Tomorrow night more from Sarah as

:18:07.:18:12.

we find out how she has helped victims of Japan's tsunami and why

:18:12.:18:20.

she is being mobbed by Tokyo school-children. Wow. She is

:18:20.:18:25.

extraordinary. I would be tempted to catch a plane! Still to come.

:18:25.:18:30.

Why you should use your vote. How Alice Hawkins suffered in her

:18:30.:18:39.

campaign to get equal rights for women. Time for the sport. Here is

:18:40.:18:45.

Colin. It is short and sweet from me tonight. We look ahead to the

:18:45.:18:49.

football tonight. We will start with Forest who can confirm they

:18:49.:18:54.

will be in the Championship next season. Victory at Reading or a

:18:54.:18:56.

defeat forCoventry would be enough for safety, but no-one is about to

:18:56.:19:01.

throw a party. I don't think anybody would be celebrating, it is

:19:01.:19:06.

a case of making sure it is not a disastrous season, and as soon as

:19:06.:19:12.

it is done, put it to bed and look towards the next season, because it

:19:12.:19:15.

has been a terrible season, a club like to shouldn't be in the

:19:15.:19:21.

position we are in. The sooner we get it done the better. Leicester

:19:21.:19:24.

season is likely to come to its final destination tonight. Only a

:19:24.:19:28.

miracle would see them into the play-offs now but all they can do

:19:28.:19:35.

is keep winning. There for us at the match is Paul Bradshaw. They

:19:35.:19:40.

are plea places and six points off the play offs with three games left.

:19:40.:19:44.

First it is Burnley. Is there anything left to play for? They

:19:44.:19:48.

have left it a bit too late, and hopefully, if we can win the last

:19:48.:19:54.

three games and other teams mess up stranger things have happen. Keep

:19:54.:20:00.

the faith. Fingers crossed. Keeping the faith there. Is it a case of

:20:00.:20:03.

inconsistencies costing you dear? Very much so. If you look at

:20:04.:20:07.

performances against the bigger side, we are have played well and

:20:07.:20:14.

fallen flat on the sides we should beat. It is looking to next season,

:20:14.:20:18.

getting it right and it will work out for the best. So fingers

:20:18.:20:24.

crossed but this season is done for me. We will, yes, the Foxes needing

:20:24.:20:32.

a win and relying on teams above them to slip up. Speaking of slip

:20:32.:20:37.

ups Derby could do Leicester a big favour. They are at Cardiff. Scar

:20:37.:20:41.

dif are in one of the play off spots. The Rams are delighted that

:20:41.:20:47.

a top half finish is well in reach. Just the achievement getting into

:20:47.:20:52.

the top half after last year, struggling. Near the bottom and

:20:52.:20:58.

fighting for your lives. It is nice to go into games, like relaxed kind

:20:58.:21:04.

of thing but wanting tho do the best you can wanting to do the best

:21:04.:21:07.

you can. As well as football this is a big Olympic week. We have

:21:07.:21:11.

heard about the torch relay but tomorrow we have a special

:21:11.:21:16.

broadcast to mark 100 days to go to the games. Here is a taster. Sam

:21:16.:21:23.

Oldham is back after an injury. His battle to join Team GB starts again

:21:23.:21:33.
:21:33.:21:40.

this weekend. Here is his Olympic dream. I am Sam Oldham. A gymnast.

:21:40.:21:46.

My Olympic dream is to win a medal as a team at the Olympic Games and

:21:46.:21:51.

hopefully make the all round final. I can remember the first day after

:21:51.:21:55.

we won the bid for the Olympic Games. I can remember hitting the

:21:56.:22:03.

running track at 6.45 thinking this is it. Six years now. For most of

:22:03.:22:08.

us we have been working sort of ten, some of the older guys 20 years

:22:08.:22:13.

just for in sort of moment, competing in a home games is going

:22:13.:22:21.

to be like nothing I have experienced before. Make sure you

:22:21.:22:26.

are tuned in tomorrow. Plenty more Olympic stuff and we think and

:22:26.:22:30.

Kirsty due to be out and about as we celebrate 100 days to go.

:22:30.:22:33.

Speaking of Anne the football results and action on the late

:22:33.:22:41.

bulletin. I am becoming affiliate fod the sports department! An

:22:41.:22:47.

honorary member! Now then, what terms and average law-abiding

:22:47.:22:53.

citizen into a law breaker? In the first of John hom's new series of

:22:54.:22:59.

historic homs he's visits Leicester to learn about a woman who

:22:59.:23:04.

spearheaded one of the biggest reforms the country has seen. The

:23:04.:23:07.

suffragette movement was formed as an action group campaigning for

:23:07.:23:13.

votes for women. By 1907 it was having an impact on our lives. 44-

:23:13.:23:17.

year-old Alice Hawkins journeyed to London and became involved in a

:23:17.:23:22.

pitch battle with police. She was arrested for disorderly conduct

:23:22.:23:26.

outside the gates of the House of Commons and spent 14 days in

:23:26.:23:30.

Holloway Prison alongside 28 other women, including Emily Pankhurst.

:23:30.:23:34.

But Alice was unlike most, who were very middle class, she was lower

:23:34.:23:43.

class, living here in Leicester at 18 Mantle Road where she worked at

:23:43.:23:48.

a nearby shoe factory. My great- grandmother Alice was aggrieved at

:23:48.:23:51.

her lot in life. Alice and other women were paid one third the going

:23:51.:23:57.

rate the men were earning for doing to same job. So for Alice, becoming

:23:57.:24:01.

a revolutionary was about putting bred on the table for children.

:24:01.:24:06.

About getting better pay and conditions. -- bread. The vote was

:24:06.:24:13.

a route to that. But the shoe factory was different. It was a

:24:13.:24:18.

workers' co-operative, encouraging women like Alice to join political

:24:18.:24:23.

organisations. She founded a Leicester branch of the women's

:24:23.:24:28.

union. In November the battles took place in London. The police beat up

:24:28.:24:33.

the suffragettes. A Alice was given 14 days. A year later she met the

:24:33.:24:36.

Prime Minister Lloyd George at the houses of Parliament to plead her

:24:36.:24:43.

cause. She died aged 83, and was laid the rest at Welford Road

:24:43.:24:47.

cemetery. She was buried in a pauper's grave. She was the last

:24:47.:24:54.

one in. There is five others here. She was buried in 1946. Why hasn't

:24:54.:24:59.

it got a grave stone on it? I think the family lacked income at the

:24:59.:25:03.

time she died, so it has never had a headstone. Myself and other

:25:03.:25:07.

members of the family are joining forces and we will put a headstone

:25:07.:25:12.

up to commemorate her. Alice fought all her life for equal rights. She

:25:12.:25:17.

was a determined lady, standing up for what she believed in. A

:25:17.:25:23.

lifelong motto, always use your vote, we suffered for it. There you

:25:23.:25:28.

are. The Dowty Alice haur kins.. What a womanment. What a hat! And

:25:28.:25:31.

What a womanment. What a hat! And what weather. Yes. Interesting

:25:31.:25:35.

weather. Yes a wet week. It will be on and off. We will see showers and

:25:35.:25:39.

another band of rain coming through tonight. One new arrival who isn't

:25:39.:25:46.

too fussed about this was captured by Steve today. So thank you for

:25:46.:25:52.

that Steve. Enjoying a bit of a drink there. We have seen a wind.

:25:53.:25:56.

It has been helping the showers move through quickly and we have

:25:56.:26:00.

seen a bit of sunshine in between those shower, and we still have a

:26:00.:26:06.

few to go now. Before they will start to die away overnight. They

:26:06.:26:10.

could contain hail and there is a chance of hearing thunder. The

:26:10.:26:13.

cloud starts to increase again through the early hours of the

:26:13.:26:16.

morning so the coldest temperatures will be in the far north, down to

:26:16.:26:21.

about 3C before the cloud starts to increase again. This is the first

:26:21.:26:25.

signs of a band of rain pushing up from the south, that will be

:26:25.:26:29.

joining us tomorrow morning and it is going to be quite slow-moving as

:26:29.:26:33.

well. It pivots round across the East Midlands as it is working

:26:33.:26:38.

northwards, giving rain for a period of time. As that starts to

:26:38.:26:42.

clear away, we have got heavy slow- moving showers coming in behind it.

:26:42.:26:47.

They are going to contain hail and they could be thundery. It will

:26:47.:26:52.

feel cooler tomorrow, very lacking in sunshine with all the rain round

:26:52.:26:57.

but the daytime temperature no higher than nine C. It lab breezy

:26:58.:27:00.

south-easterly wind and thu, although the wind is starting to

:27:00.:27:04.

die down we have showers round. On Friday as well, our area of low

:27:04.:27:11.

pressure becomes more flaby, so not producing the wind, but it will

:27:11.:27:16.

give us again very slow-moving showers and they will be heavy and

:27:16.:27:20.

they could contain hail and be thundery. It will be quite a wet

:27:20.:27:25.
