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

:00:05.:00:08.

Our top story tonight: HS2 - the Government admits house

:00:08.:00:17.

prices will fall. The day after the rule was

:00:17.:00:22.

published, concerns grow over the impact of the. Shocked to think it

:00:22.:00:27.

is going to cut Harland in half. Plus, why the police are changing

:00:27.:00:31.

their attitudes to mental health. For five, six years ago we would

:00:31.:00:35.

have had to take somebody we had detained two mis-sell blocker was

:00:35.:00:39.

mentally ill. I do not think that is the right place. -- to a cell

:00:39.:00:44.

block. And why high streets continue to

:00:44.:00:48.

struggle but others go from strength to strength.

:00:48.:00:52.

And me the latest edition here at Twycross Zoo of that is causing

:00:52.:01:02.
:01:02.:01:03.

Good evening and welcome to the programme. The Government has

:01:03.:01:06.

admitted that property prices along the new high-speed rail link will

:01:06.:01:12.

fall in the short term. The proposed new route between London

:01:12.:01:15.

and Leeds was announced yesterday, and already estate agents in the

:01:15.:01:17.

East Midlands are reporting that buyers are getting cold feet and

:01:17.:01:25.

pulling out of sales. Our reporter Geoff Maskell is at Long Eaton in

:01:25.:01:35.
:01:35.:01:35.

Derbyshire, one of the communities directly affected by the HS2 route.

:01:35.:01:43.

Good evening. Nobody wants to talk about a property deal that has gone

:01:43.:01:49.

sour, at least not on camera. But I know about one sale that has gone

:01:49.:01:55.

to pot so far. �10,000 not of the value of their home. But the

:01:55.:01:57.

evidence from the Government is that after the confusion and

:01:57.:02:02.

building phase, property prices could be in for a bit of a boost.

:02:02.:02:05.

If welcome to the North London suburb of totem.

:02:05.:02:10.

But at least it could be in 20 years' time. Derbyshire based

:02:10.:02:14.

developers have an application to build more than 700 houses on these

:02:14.:02:19.

fields. They stretch from the island over there down to the

:02:19.:02:23.

siding at the bottom of the hill, and that will be home to the new

:02:23.:02:27.

HS2 station. And with a 51 minute commute into London, those houses

:02:28.:02:31.

will be effectively closer to the capital than any existing commuter

:02:31.:02:37.

towns. We are going to get Londoners moving in, I think!

:02:37.:02:43.

Pushing up your house prices? Possibly, yes. I think it is very

:02:43.:02:47.

good and will bring some prosperity to the area. At Robert Ellis they

:02:47.:02:52.

have been selling houses in Long Eaton for 25 years and HS2 could be

:02:52.:02:57.

a big change. When it takes place it will have a very positive effect

:02:57.:03:01.

but we did talk about the transport links we already have in the Long

:03:01.:03:05.

Eaton area because we are close to the M1 motorway, the railway

:03:05.:03:11.

station. So people do move into the area for these links and we know a

:03:11.:03:15.

high-speed train into London will move things up again. But first,

:03:15.:03:21.

the market faces its worst fear - uncertainty.

:03:21.:03:25.

At the other branch, they are already dealing with the kind of

:03:25.:03:28.

uncertainty that comes from the extension of the Nottingham tram

:03:28.:03:33.

network, but here they say they are expecting an uplift in property in

:03:33.:03:38.

those areas as well, which is a good bit of news for homeowners.

:03:38.:03:42.

Last night I spoke to Margaret and her neighbours at drink cottages

:03:42.:03:46.

and they were exhausted today by what they had been going through

:03:46.:03:50.

and still have had no communication from the VAT company and were no

:03:50.:03:55.

clearer about what any compensation package might mean from them. --

:03:55.:03:58.

the HS2 company. So, communities, businesses and

:03:58.:04:00.

individuals still trying to assess the impact of the high-speed rail

:04:00.:04:04.

link. But what about the effect on our landscape? Today the National

:04:04.:04:07.

Trust said it was opposed to the line's proposed route through its

:04:07.:04:11.

historic Hardwick Hall estate, as Mike O'Sullivan reports.

:04:11.:04:15.

It wasn't on East Midlands Airport's radar. So it was news to

:04:15.:04:17.

them that a giant 2.5-kilometre tunnel would be built underneath

:04:17.:04:23.

the airport to bring high-speed rail to the region. They're still

:04:23.:04:31.

looking at the implications. I do not think we can expect the

:04:31.:04:34.

Government to have told everybody whose land they were going to

:04:34.:04:38.

tunnel under. I think they would probably say East Midlands Airport

:04:38.:04:43.

should not be an exception to this. After tunnelling under the airport,

:04:43.:04:48.

there is another huge construction job for HS2. It will pass under

:04:48.:04:53.

junction 24 of the M1 motorway and then go under the flood plain of

:04:53.:05:01.

the rivers or under a two mile viaduct to the power station. After

:05:01.:05:04.

two miles of elevated travel, the line will touch ground again as it

:05:04.:05:07.

cuts through Red Hill, near the Ratcliffe Power Station. Then it's

:05:07.:05:10.

onto another viaduct for another mile to get across the River Trent

:05:10.:05:20.
:05:20.:05:28.

and its floodplain. Further North, the most spectacular bridge of all.

:05:28.:05:32.

The landowner is stunned. Never heard anything about it before and

:05:32.:05:41.

it was quite a surprise, probably a shock, to think it was going to go

:05:41.:05:50.

and cut our land in half. Further North, HS2 will run through

:05:50.:05:53.

National Trust land at Hardwick Hall, tucked alongside the M1,

:05:53.:06:00.

which already bisects the estate. We will discuss things with them to

:06:00.:06:04.

get the best possible solution, whatever that might be. We hope

:06:04.:06:08.

people will look at the positive benefits. There could be a lot of

:06:08.:06:11.

jobs and the railway supply industry, regardless of who builds

:06:11.:06:17.

it, the actual trains. The public consultation period for the high-

:06:17.:06:19.

speed rail proposals will end on 29th April.

:06:19.:06:22.

Well, forget high-speed for a moment. Because later in the

:06:22.:06:25.

programme, we'll celebrate a slower pace of life. A camera causes

:06:25.:06:28.

excitement in the Derbyshire countryside. Well, it is the 1930s,

:06:28.:06:35.

when for many, this was as fast as things got.

:06:35.:06:40.

We have been giving with one hand and taking with the other. It is a

:06:40.:06:44.

lot milder now but it is about to get a whole deal wetter and a good

:06:44.:06:50.

deal when as well. Join me for the details later in the programmes. --

:06:50.:06:56.

A police force is training thousands of officers and staff to

:06:56.:06:59.

deal with people who have mental health problems. Leicestershire's

:06:59.:07:03.

Chief Constable has told us that up to a quarter of calls to his force

:07:03.:07:06.

are the result of mental health issues, as our social affairs

:07:06.:07:16.
:07:16.:07:17.

correspondent, Jeremy Ball, reports. A stranger pushed under a moving

:07:17.:07:21.

train in Loughborough. A Nottinghamshire pensioner stabbed

:07:21.:07:24.

to death by his paranoid schizophrenic grandson. Mental

:07:24.:07:29.

health makes headlines when things go badly wrong but for Simon it is

:07:29.:07:33.

a Daily priority. He is in charge of dealing with mental health for

:07:33.:07:38.

police chiefs across the country. Probably 25% of our business has

:07:38.:07:42.

some linked to mental health. It is 3am, who do they turn to? Quite

:07:42.:07:46.

often it is us and that means are patrolling officer who literally

:07:46.:07:51.

saves the life by the way they talk to somebody. You talk about people

:07:51.:07:57.

having a psychotic episode. And now all frontline officers are being

:07:57.:08:00.

trained here to deal with everything from dementia sufferers

:08:00.:08:06.

who are missing or island to preventing suicide. Then needs to

:08:06.:08:10.

be 24-7 access for crisis care for people it is perhaps more immediate

:08:10.:08:14.

ban at the moment, so if an individual is at a point of crisis,

:08:14.:08:19.

they know who to call or their friends and family no mood to call

:08:19.:08:23.

at 3am and then a officers can support them, and I think that

:08:23.:08:29.

could be done more effectively across the country overall. --

:08:29.:08:38.

their friends and family know whom to call. Many of the people end up

:08:38.:08:45.

under lock and key and it is protecting the staff and care staff.

:08:45.:08:50.

Patients, where, at the first stage, we can identify the consultant for

:08:50.:08:53.

that patient and classified the type of offence. It has made a

:08:53.:08:58.

massive difference. Five, six years ago we would have had to take

:08:58.:09:01.

somebody we had detained who was mentally ill to a prison cell and I

:09:01.:09:04.

do not think that is the place where we should be treating

:09:04.:09:08.

somebody. You would not take somebody with a broken leg tour

:09:08.:09:11.

prison cell and expect them to get better. Often these are people who

:09:11.:09:18.

are ill rather than those who have committed a crime. People have this

:09:18.:09:23.

will keep all of us safer in future. -- the police hope.

:09:23.:09:25.

Cuts to services in Derbyshire of �127 million have been approved

:09:25.:09:29.

today. It'll mean big reductions in the budgets for adult services and

:09:29.:09:33.

support for children and young people. It'll also lead to more

:09:33.:09:38.

than 1,000 jobs being lost over the next four years. Derbyshire County

:09:38.:09:40.

Council says the most vulnerable people will be protected but their

:09:40.:09:42.

services will be delivered differently, as Quentin Rayner

:09:42.:09:51.

reports. The Conservative Cabinet met to

:09:51.:09:56.

County Hall today and ratified and other four years of cuts. Between

:09:56.:10:01.

now and 2017, �127 million of savings will be made. 25 million

:10:01.:10:05.

will be cut this year. Exactly where has now been revealed. Almost

:10:05.:10:10.

a million pounds will go from support for children services and a

:10:10.:10:15.

further �9 million from adult care. -- �8 million. �3 million will be

:10:15.:10:19.

saved from the budget for highways maintenance. The council says money

:10:19.:10:29.
:10:29.:10:31.

can be saved by be -- by fixing potholes in other ways. We are

:10:31.:10:34.

focused on their needs and there will be different services

:10:34.:10:38.

delivered in different ways to cope with these budget pressures but we

:10:38.:10:42.

are well practised at this and we have their interests at heart.

:10:42.:10:47.

frontline services be reduced? will be changed as a result of this,

:10:47.:10:50.

as we have already delivered changes. It is the only way to cope

:10:50.:10:55.

with these sorts of pressures. is this denial again - trying to

:10:55.:10:58.

carry on, doing the same as they have done with less money, and if

:10:58.:11:03.

you keep doing that, you end up sailing. Those involved in

:11:03.:11:07.

providing adult care say there will be an impact on services on top of

:11:07.:11:13.

what they are already experiencing. Many are going to have the only day

:11:13.:11:19.

of day care they received taken away, and we have one man going to

:11:19.:11:23.

a centre and it is the only service he received. That is being cut.

:11:24.:11:27.

Since 2000 and, the council has already cut 2000 jobs, and with

:11:27.:11:36.

this latest raft of cuts, it expects to lose 14 another 1,400

:11:36.:11:40.

posts. -- since 2010 of. A 50-year-old man has been charged

:11:40.:11:42.

with a Public Order Offence after a police investigation into disorder

:11:42.:11:46.

at a football match in Leicester. It follows an under-15s game

:11:46.:11:48.

between Blaby and Whetstone Football Club and Leicester Nirvana

:11:48.:11:51.

FC last October, in which players from both teams and the referee

:11:51.:11:54.

were charged with improper conduct. The man is due to appear at

:11:54.:11:59.

Leicester Magistrates Court next month.

:11:59.:12:02.

Roadworks have been blamed for bringing traffic in Derby to a

:12:02.:12:06.

standstill this morning. The three bridges that carry the city's inner

:12:06.:12:09.

ring-road between the Derwent Underpass and King Street, close to

:12:09.:12:14.

the A52, are being renovated. The team behind the bridge project at

:12:14.:12:17.

Derby City Council say that this morning's problems should be the

:12:17.:12:24.

worst that motorists experience during the renovation work.

:12:24.:12:28.

A woman was taken to hospital after being trapped in a car which

:12:28.:12:31.

crashed in Nottingham. Part of Canal Street in the city centre was

:12:31.:12:33.

closed for four hours after the vehicle lost control near the

:12:33.:12:37.

London Road roundabout. A second car drove off. Police are appealing

:12:37.:12:43.

for witnesses. Traders and shoppers in Ilkeston

:12:43.:12:46.

say they need more support from the local council to stop more shops

:12:46.:12:51.

following the Co-op and quitting the high street. The department

:12:52.:12:55.

store is one of seven in the East Midlands to close, threatening

:12:55.:12:59.

dozens of jobs. But over in Belper, many shops say parts of the town

:12:59.:13:02.

there are thriving. Tom Brown has been following the varied fortunes

:13:02.:13:12.
:13:12.:13:12.

of these two Derbyshire towns. The end of the road from one of

:13:12.:13:17.

this town's biggest shops. Last week's announcement that the Co-op

:13:17.:13:19.

department store would close was another blow to the struggling

:13:19.:13:23.

high-street. Today, traders and shoppers Tommy morale in the town

:13:23.:13:28.

is at its lowest binges and that the local council needs to step in.

:13:28.:13:33.

-- local shoppers told me. If they do not step in now, it will become

:13:33.:13:38.

a ghost town like many others. I would like to know what the council

:13:38.:13:43.

will do about it. Sadly, nobody from the council was able to talk

:13:43.:13:46.

to us today but in a statement, they said they were working

:13:46.:13:49.

together with partners to improve regenerate the town centre. But it

:13:49.:13:54.

did not mention any concrete proposals, so what do the people of

:13:54.:13:56.

Ilkeston thing should be done to revive the fortunes of their high

:13:56.:14:01.

street? What they need to do was move with the times and incorporate

:14:01.:14:04.

the customer shopping experience with the internet as well. Get rid

:14:04.:14:10.

of Tesco! They are building another Morrisons down the road, so this is

:14:11.:14:19.

doomed, really, I think. But while sales go down in Ilkeston, bin

:14:19.:14:23.

Belper, thanks to innovative ideas, stores on the streets there are

:14:23.:14:29.

striving and. You can even buy chocolate shoes! It is having the

:14:29.:14:32.

courage to open up the first job and be the first people to do it

:14:32.:14:36.

and also the council has to be behind us with rates and the

:14:36.:14:39.

landlords with their rent. There has to be something in place so

:14:39.:14:44.

these shops can start up and hopefully flourish. Backing

:14:44.:14:49.

Ilkeston, the Chamber of Trade says supporting the businesses is the

:14:49.:14:53.

key to high street revival. The is has been going on for years. All

:14:53.:14:57.

sorts of proposals have been put to the council. They have even agreed

:14:57.:15:01.

some ideas are good but they do not seem to be able to implement them.

:15:01.:15:05.

Two towns separated by 10 miles up worlds apart when it comes to

:15:05.:15:15.
:15:15.:15:15.

confidence on the High Street. Chocolate shoes! That his genius!

:15:15.:15:20.

Everything combine in one! Coming up, the sport, and here's a

:15:20.:15:22.

brief preview. Yes, when it comes to a pay-off,

:15:22.:15:32.
:15:32.:15:34.

you could say our Helen is on a roll. Helen Barnes... BBC East

:15:34.:15:44.
:15:44.:15:45.

Lovely! Now it's time to travel back in

:15:45.:15:48.

time to the village of Kniveton, right in the heart of Derbyshire.

:15:48.:15:52.

We can see what life in the countryside was like in the 1930s,

:15:52.:15:55.

thanks to a local gent, a Mr Wright and his chauffeur, a Mr Radcliffe.

:15:55.:16:05.
:16:05.:16:12.

Here's Teresa Mikula with Go right, turn at the Old Vicarage,

:16:12.:16:16.

and he was the first person in the village to have a car and a

:16:16.:16:21.

telephone. And a refrigerator! I think it was just the novelty of

:16:21.:16:28.

having something. I do not think he was minded that always so he got Mr

:16:28.:16:37.

Radcliffe to drive the car and make the films. Beth Hunt was born in

:16:37.:16:42.

Kniveton and is on one of the films. I don't know what I was doing but I

:16:42.:16:50.

was putting this thing in his hat. They took a lot of films and he

:16:50.:16:54.

used to London to various organisations, like the mothers'

:16:54.:16:59.

union, to show them. Now, some 80 years later, those same films have

:16:59.:17:05.

been shown again as part of the media archive collection. Oh, yes,

:17:05.:17:10.

there were lots of people wanting a film of their parents. And

:17:10.:17:17.

grandparents! My wife's family is on the films. I recognised my

:17:17.:17:22.

father-in-law and his father, who was still living there. Kniveton

:17:22.:17:26.

was quite a remote village in the 30s but this did not concern the

:17:26.:17:33.

residents. People do not want to go out, apart from going to Ashbourne.

:17:33.:17:37.

Apart from that, people did not seem to worry about going out of

:17:37.:17:45.

the village. With people not travelling very far, we were

:17:45.:17:51.

families who very much into married. It was a very good community spirit.

:17:51.:17:58.

Go and they knew how to party! It is 1936 and George V's Silver

:17:58.:18:06.

Jubilee. Everybody had a commemorative mug and there was a

:18:06.:18:11.

tea and races and so on. They now work with local communities to

:18:11.:18:20.

preserve such local history. These films would probably have got lost

:18:20.:18:26.

in time. It is very nice that they should be kept and that the younger

:18:26.:18:36.
:18:36.:18:37.

generation can look at them and see What beautiful pictures! I could

:18:37.:18:41.

watch that for hours. Just lovely! It does make you hanker a bit,

:18:41.:18:46.

doesn't it? Yes, for a gentler pace of life.

:18:46.:18:49.

But we're going to break the spell now, because it is time for the

:18:49.:18:52.

sport. Notts County is in action in League

:18:52.:18:56.

1 tonight, away at struggling Portsmouth. Now, it's a long enough

:18:56.:18:59.

trip to do once, but for many fans, this is the second time they've

:18:59.:19:03.

been down there in just a couple of weeks. Last time around, the match

:19:03.:19:06.

got called off at the last minute because of torrential rain. Kirsty

:19:06.:19:12.

Edwards has been down to see them get ready for round two.

:19:12.:19:17.

It is deja-vu for these fans, off again to the south coast. Notts

:19:17.:19:21.

County saw their impressive away unbeaten run come to an end at the

:19:21.:19:25.

weekend. I am sure they had hoped to get another run going tonight at

:19:25.:19:29.

Portsmouth and in fact, I am sure they would love to get all three

:19:29.:19:33.

points. 12th in League One and eight points off the play-off

:19:33.:19:38.

places. Not where they were hoping to be. But as the fans waited to

:19:38.:19:42.

set off, the mood certainly seemed positive. Still early days yet. Not

:19:42.:19:47.

even February. I am hoping we can get to the play-offs at least.

:19:47.:19:53.

season hangs in the balance tonight, I think. Things will be easier

:19:53.:19:56.

after this one if we can get momentum and get out strikers

:19:56.:20:02.

sought it. After that, we should be OK. So off they go, and indeed the

:20:02.:20:06.

team will have to get very used to sitting on a bus over the next few

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

days. Tonight it is the second of the four a way -- away matches for

:20:16.:20:22.

the team. I sorry if you had trouble hearing the earlier.

:20:22.:20:26.

Hopefully it is now fixed. Nottingham Forest are stepping up

:20:26.:20:29.

their efforts to add to their squad before Thursday's transfer deadline.

:20:29.:20:32.

They've made another offer for Birmingham's Chris Burke. The Reds

:20:32.:20:35.

have already had one bid for the winger, turned down, but Birmingham

:20:35.:20:37.

say they are considering this improved offer. He's actually

:20:37.:20:41.

scored a couple of decent goals against the Reds over the past two

:20:41.:20:43.

seasons. Now, the first ever programme to

:20:43.:20:46.

find Olympic canoe slalom stars of the future has just been run right

:20:46.:20:49.

here in the East Midlands. And it's been so successful, similar schemes

:20:49.:20:52.

are about to start round the country. So, for the first in her

:20:52.:20:55.

series on the Olympic legacy, Helen Barnes has been to meet the

:20:55.:21:05.
:21:05.:21:06.

youngsters who are progressing way 12 months ago, these were just a

:21:06.:21:10.

bunch of ordinary school kids. Then they got picked by talent spotters

:21:10.:21:14.

to do canoe slalom and now they are some of the best up and coming

:21:14.:21:23.

The youngsters have benefited from having training sessions during

:21:24.:21:28.

school time, as well as evenings and weekends. We will really

:21:28.:21:31.

ambitious with the targets we set and they have always delivered

:21:31.:21:35.

whatever we have asked them to. And there progress has been absolutely

:21:35.:21:39.

phenomenal. The kids are all loving it and it is pushing them and they

:21:39.:21:44.

have got focused on getting the gold medal. Etienne Stott was part

:21:44.:21:49.

of canoeing's record 2012 medals and the sport is still on high.

:21:49.:21:55.

think it is really cool. It is part of what the sport thrives on. You

:21:55.:22:00.

need inspiration and a champion to draw the youngsters up and to push

:22:00.:22:04.

the standards amongst the elite athletes. He is a great inspiration

:22:04.:22:08.

for the sport and he is just an inspiration for all of us. You can

:22:08.:22:12.

now think, I can get a gold medal as well. Talent-spotting and

:22:12.:22:16.

training is behind many gold medal successes but these Nottingham

:22:16.:22:22.

youngsters are the first ever in canoe slalom. Be a complicated

:22:22.:22:25.

sport like ours it is difficult to tell what are the most important

:22:25.:22:31.

factors you try to identified in youngsters. -- in a complicated

:22:31.:22:35.

sport. People out there are being coached and learning to canoe on

:22:35.:22:38.

their own and those will be successful as well. We will see who

:22:38.:22:48.
:22:48.:22:55.

gets the prize first! It is really I have been canoeing for 25 years,

:22:55.:23:00.

but so much has changed recently. For a great role models, the

:23:00.:23:05.

opportunities these kids have got our just better than ever. Helen

:23:05.:23:12.

Barnes... For BBC East Midlands Today in Nottingham!

:23:12.:23:16.

A bit of news about Helen herself to leave you with - after 20 years

:23:16.:23:18.

as an international canoeist and two Guinness World Records, she's

:23:18.:23:22.

decided to retire from the top level of the sport. It will miss

:23:22.:23:25.

her. But you can see Helen again tomorrow as she explores whether

:23:25.:23:33.

the Olympic legacy is going far enough. It will be well worth a

:23:33.:23:39.

watch. Trust me! Just like that! Good luck, Helen. In whatever you

:23:39.:23:44.

do. She will be fantastic whatever it is. Next tonight, Twycross Zoo

:23:44.:23:48.

is celebrating a new arrival. A baby gorilla from an endangered

:23:48.:23:51.

species native to Central Africa. Western Lowland gorillas are dying

:23:51.:23:54.

out due to declining habits and hunting. There are estimated to be

:23:54.:23:56.

fewer than 100,000 in the wild, which officially classifies the

:23:57.:23:59.

species as being dangerously close to extinction, as Rebecca Sheeran

:23:59.:24:09.
:24:09.:24:10.

reports. Meet the latest edition at less

:24:10.:24:13.

than four weeks old, this little baby has been clinging so closely

:24:13.:24:20.

to mum, zoo-keeper has still do not know if it is a boy or A Gill.

:24:20.:24:24.

are always excited about these gorilla births. Every birth of a

:24:24.:24:26.

gorilla is an important contribution to the conservation of

:24:27.:24:31.

the species because of the numbers are dwindling. It has made a year.

:24:31.:24:34.

Be it might be small, but this little baby is attracting a big

:24:35.:24:42.

audience. We have been looking forward to seeing it. We've been

:24:42.:24:46.

trying to spy on the baby be on the adults. But Daddy is very

:24:46.:24:51.

protective! In his thought and there are fewer than 100,000

:24:51.:24:58.

lowland rivers in the wild. Hunting and habitat loss are just a couple

:24:58.:25:03.

of the reasons that they are coming so close to extinction. So the

:25:03.:25:08.

birth of his baby is being celebrated. The birth of a baby is

:25:08.:25:11.

actually very important for the whole structure, social structure,

:25:11.:25:16.

of the group, because it brings a whole cohesiveness to their society.

:25:16.:25:21.

A zoo is learning more about the birth of this baby but like any mum,

:25:21.:25:26.

this one is keeping her baby under wraps.

:25:26.:25:31.

The baby does not let go of its mother properly for two years! It

:25:31.:25:41.
:25:41.:25:43.

must be true! That is a miracle. Along milder for us today. This

:25:43.:25:49.

time last week we were struggling to get above freezing. -- a lot

:25:49.:25:54.

milder. But today we have been at 13 degrees. The average for this

:25:54.:26:02.

time of year is about seven Celsius so we have gone from well below to

:26:02.:26:08.

well above. The reason for that is these westerly winds. It is a lot

:26:08.:26:13.

might as well. We have picked up a wondering whether front. So far

:26:13.:26:18.

today, we have had a force-field around us. The rain has been

:26:18.:26:21.

skipping across us but we don't think we will be quite as lucky

:26:21.:26:25.

this evening and overnight, so the cloud will be thickening up and we

:26:26.:26:29.

will see outbreaks of light, patchy rain to start with it through the

:26:29.:26:34.

early hours of the morning. Later on, we see the rain padding up,

:26:34.:26:38.

particularly across parts of Leicestershire, where Grieg could

:26:38.:26:44.

get an inch of rain. -- the rain increasing. Very mild tonight with

:26:44.:26:48.

the temperatures. Tomorrow morning, still some rain kicking around

:26:48.:26:52.

early on but it clears away fairly quickly and behind that, the skies

:26:52.:26:57.

are brighter, with beautiful sunshine for tomorrow morning, but

:26:57.:27:06.

very windy with showers coming in but -- behind that. We have a

:27:06.:27:09.

yellow weather morning in force for tomorrow with gusts of around 40-50

:27:09.:27:17.

miles an hour. A cross wind, a westerly one, going across the M1

:27:17.:27:22.

motorway. Further rain to come through Thursday night from

:27:22.:27:27.

Wednesday. A word of warning - it looks like it is cooling down once

:27:27.:27:31.

again towards the end of the week and into the weekend. Lots of
