Anne Davies and Dominic Heale. Tonight, new calls for action

:00:08.:00:17.

against internet bullies after the death of a teenage girl. Also

:00:17.:00:22.

tonight, hunger in hospital. The patients most to wait hours for

:00:22.:00:26.

food. Hundreds of meals were delayed so not only were they delayed by an

:00:26.:00:31.

hour or two, they were also delivered wrongly to patients, the

:00:31.:00:34.

wrong meals. Plus a fortnight since the floods but it will take months

:00:34.:00:40.

for this time to recover. And motherhood versus marathons, how

:00:40.:00:45.

children help Paula Radcliffe put her sport in it. They remind you all

:00:45.:00:49.

the time and you think, how did I do something like that? They remind you

:00:49.:00:59.
:00:59.:01:02.

First tonight, fresh calls for an internet clamp-down after a

:01:02.:01:05.

14-year-old girl from Leicestershire was found dead in her bedroom after

:01:05.:01:08.

being targeted by so-called trolls. In the weeks before she died, Hannah

:01:08.:01:11.

Smith had received anonymous messages on the website Ask.fm

:01:11.:01:19.

telling her to take her own life. Today, her headteacher said staff

:01:19.:01:22.

and students at Lutterworth High School are "shattered" by the news.

:01:22.:01:30.

Our reporter is in Lutterworth. Eleanor, sounds like there's

:01:30.:01:40.
:01:40.:01:41.

complete shock at the school. Yes, shock and deep sadness from anybody

:01:41.:01:45.

who knew Hannah at Lutterworth High School where people are trying to

:01:45.:01:48.

come to terms with the enormity of what has happened. Hannah's

:01:48.:01:53.

headteacher said she was a teenager who was well liked and respected by

:01:53.:01:58.

everybody she met. But is somebody who has now gone from all of their

:01:58.:02:02.

lives forever. Bright, bubbly, popular. But also

:02:02.:02:07.

deeply unhappy and a vulnerable victim of online bullying.

:02:07.:02:11.

14-year-old Hannah Smith from Lutterworth took her own life last

:02:11.:02:16.

Friday. It was here at the home she shared with her father and sister

:02:16.:02:20.

that her body was found. Friends and local charities are now paying their

:02:20.:02:27.

respects. It makes you really upset. It is such a shock that somebody so

:02:27.:02:31.

lovely as he would feel like she could not talk to anybody, express

:02:31.:02:35.

how she feels. They are coping as well as they can, to be honest. It

:02:35.:02:40.

is extremely raw. They are going through every emotion you can

:02:40.:02:46.

imagine as a parent would, let alone anybody else. They are hoping now

:02:46.:02:49.

they can start the grieving process now but Hannah's story has been

:02:49.:02:55.

told. It was the social make-up working site, Ask.fm, used by

:02:55.:02:59.

millions around the world -- social networking site where Hannah had

:02:59.:03:06.

turned for help with a question about eczema. Instead, her father

:03:06.:03:09.

said she became a victim of abuse with some people telling her to take

:03:09.:03:14.

her own life. Now it is politicians that have's father wants help from.

:03:14.:03:21.

-- but Hannah's father wants help from. Pauline Latham is a victim of

:03:21.:03:28.

so-called trolls. We are in this age of transparency, everybody can get

:03:28.:03:32.

us very easily and it is the same with the online stuff for

:03:32.:03:36.

youngsters. They can be got out so easily and they do not even know the

:03:36.:03:41.

people who are targeting them very often. This is a major issue for the

:03:41.:03:45.

whole world, not just our county. Cyber bullying is one of the largest

:03:45.:03:52.

forms of bullying there is. It is a way to bully and intimidate somebody

:03:53.:03:57.

and also remain anonymous behind a computer screen. a young life

:03:57.:04:01.

wasted. But now hope that Hannah's story will help prevent more deaths

:04:01.:04:09.

like hers. What has the website said about

:04:09.:04:17.

this? I got a statement from Ask.fm which says that Hannah's death is a

:04:17.:04:21.

true tragedy. The website is used by millions of people around the world

:04:21.:04:25.

and it says it would be happy to help Leicestershire Police with

:04:25.:04:29.

their investigation. It also says that it encourages users and their

:04:29.:04:39.
:04:39.:04:39.

parents to report incidents of bullying and those reports are all

:04:39.:04:43.

read and that if policies are violated, they will be taking down.

:04:43.:04:47.

But that will be of little help to Hannah's family here in Lutterworth

:04:47.:04:50.

who are now grieving after her death. Thank you.

:04:50.:04:53.

So, is anything being done to toughen up the laws on internet

:04:53.:04:57.

bullying? Our political editor John Hess is with us. Have our laws kept

:04:57.:05:07.

up to date with the social media revolution? The law has struggled to

:05:07.:05:12.

keep up the date with the changing nature of the internet. But the

:05:12.:05:15.

Government is now poised to intervene. Only last month, the

:05:15.:05:17.

Prime Minister announced new measures to tackle internet child

:05:17.:05:26.

pornography. On the issue of cyberbullying, there is growing

:05:26.:05:29.

cross-party support for the police and the Crown Prosecution Service to

:05:29.:05:39.
:05:39.:05:41.

take more robust action against the internet providers. MPs are in

:05:41.:05:47.

recess, they must have views? certainly do. For example. Labour MP

:05:47.:05:50.

Stella Creasy - herself a victim of anonymous internet trolls - wants

:05:50.:05:53.

the equivalent of a rape alarm available online to alert the

:05:53.:06:00.

internet provider. And Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry, who's a Government

:06:00.:06:02.

minister and former criminal law barrister, says the internet

:06:02.:06:06.

providers aren't beyond the law and as a publisher, they have the same

:06:06.:06:15.

legal duty as any newspaper or broadcaster. As the Prime Minister

:06:15.:06:20.

said, "a free and open internet is vital". But in no other market and

:06:21.:06:24.

with no other industry do we "have such an extraordinary light touch

:06:24.:06:30.

when it comes to protecting our children". The message is clear -

:06:30.:06:33.

the internet providers are now under notice to get the own house in

:06:33.:06:36.

order. Thanks. Later in the programme, we'll be

:06:36.:06:38.

talking motherhood and marathon running with Paula Radcliffe. And

:06:38.:06:46.

Sara will be here with the weather. After quite a wet spell of weather,

:06:46.:06:50.

the next two or three days will be quite settled but low pressure is

:06:50.:06:54.

just waiting in the wings ready to turn things upside down by the

:06:54.:07:04.
:07:04.:07:09.

hospitals have received an apology after the catering system descended

:07:09.:07:13.

into chaos. Hundreds of mail orders did not arrive and that meant some

:07:13.:07:17.

patients could not take their vital medication. Our social affairs

:07:17.:07:23.

correspondent reports from the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

:07:23.:07:26.

If you're in hospital and trying to get well, you really need regular

:07:26.:07:29.

meals. But here at the Royal Infirmary, some patients have had to

:07:29.:07:39.

wait up to three hours for their food. Sujata was discharged this

:07:39.:07:42.

afternoon, after four days being treated for complications from her

:07:42.:07:45.

arthritis. And after what happened last weekend, she can't wait to get

:07:45.:07:50.

home. I am absolutely shattered. Not to get enough food to eat and then

:07:50.:07:54.

to feel sick all the while and hungry, and to be made to feel as if

:07:54.:07:59.

it is our own fault. They were elderly people in tears, it was

:07:59.:08:02.

horrendous. I am angry. It happened after a new catering

:08:02.:08:05.

system was introduced here last week by a private contractor called

:08:05.:08:07.

Interserve. The changes were supposed to help patients choose

:08:07.:08:10.

their food, using iPads. But hundreds of orders didn't arrive.

:08:10.:08:13.

Today, the company brought in extra staff, to sort out what it's

:08:13.:08:19.

describing as teething problems. are really sorry that we have got

:08:19.:08:25.

off to a bad start and we are very concerned. We have got a lot of

:08:25.:08:28.

people investigating, working through, making sure that we

:08:28.:08:31.

understand what the issues were and we are putting that right at the

:08:32.:08:34.

moment. But this patients' spokesman is

:08:34.:08:44.

worried. And he thinks it shows the risks involved in contracting out

:08:44.:08:48.

vital hospital services. It is vital for them to have the medication on

:08:48.:08:55.

time and I can only happen if the food arrives on time. And his not

:08:55.:08:59.

only patients, nurses and staff had to hold the fort in difficult

:08:59.:09:01.

circumstances. Today they have received an apology from hospital

:09:01.:09:11.

bosses. A young girl was taken to hospital

:09:11.:09:14.

this morning after two cows escaped from a livestock market. It happened

:09:14.:09:17.

at the farmers' market on Scalford Road in Melton Mowbray. Police were

:09:17.:09:21.

called at around 10:30. A woman also suffered minor injuries during the

:09:21.:09:24.

incident. The cows were recaptured and returned to the market by

:09:24.:09:34.
:09:34.:09:35.

midday. I came out of the stalls and it went straight into the stalls,

:09:35.:09:40.

run into the tax office and a young girl on the stalls got injured,

:09:40.:09:44.

apparently. Somebody else got knocked over but he got up, he was

:09:44.:09:49.

all right. He was a farmer, you see. I understand there were a

:09:49.:09:53.

couple of people injured, the most concerning injuries were a

:09:53.:10:01.

six-year-old child who was injured, I understand they have been taken to

:10:01.:10:04.

hospital for a precaution. People need to understand this is half a

:10:04.:10:08.

tonne of least which is dangerous when it is released. -- half a tonne

:10:08.:10:11.

of beast. A Nottinghamshire farmer has been

:10:11.:10:15.

charged in connection with the death of a walker who was killed by a bull

:10:15.:10:19.

on a public footpath. Roger Freeman was walking with his wife through a

:10:19.:10:22.

field in Stanford on Soar in November 2010 when the bull

:10:22.:10:24.

attacked. The 63-year-old from Glen Parva in Leicestershire died from

:10:25.:10:27.

multiple injuries. His wife spent three weeks in hospital. Paul

:10:27.:10:30.

Geoffrey Waterfall has been charged with manslaughter by gross

:10:30.:10:35.

negligence. A mother jailed for 17 years for

:10:35.:10:39.

killing her six children in a Derby house fire has, for the second time,

:10:39.:10:43.

appealed to have her sentence reduced. Mairead Philpott was jailed

:10:43.:10:47.

along with her husband Mick - who got life - after being found guilty

:10:47.:10:51.

of the manslaughter of their six children. Family friend Paul Mosley

:10:51.:10:56.

was also sentenced to 17 years. Their first appeal was thrown out at

:10:56.:10:59.

the end of last month. Mairead Philpott and Mosley will now be

:10:59.:11:05.

granted a short hearing in front of three judges.

:11:05.:11:09.

A pressure group calling for a cut in stamp duty says big tax bills are

:11:09.:11:15.

holding back the housing market. The TaxPayers' Alliance says one in ten

:11:15.:11:19.

sales in the East Midlands were hit by tax bills of �7,500 or more last

:11:19.:11:23.

year. They claim stamp duty scares off some first-time buyers and

:11:23.:11:28.

others who want to move up the property ladder. But the Government

:11:28.:11:31.

insists their other policies do support people wanting to buy a

:11:31.:11:34.

home. Mike O'Sullivan has been investigating how it affects our

:11:34.:11:44.
:11:44.:11:47.

region. value of the house. Up to �125,000,

:11:47.:11:51.

there's no stamp duty. Above that, the duty is 1%. Then it goes up

:11:51.:11:55.

dramatically for a house worth more than �250,000 - it's 3%. It can be

:11:55.:12:01.

as much as 7% for some expensive properties. But for many people in

:12:01.:12:04.

the housing market, this is the critical barrier to moving house -

:12:04.:12:14.
:12:14.:12:18.

the jump from 1-3% at �250,000. The tax bill? At least �7,500. They need

:12:18.:12:23.

to look at a way of changing the rates and thresholds so that not so

:12:23.:12:27.

many people are getting hit by these massive lump sums of money when they

:12:27.:12:29.

are trying to save for a mortgage themselves.

:12:29.:12:32.

In the East Midlands, the figures produced by The TaxPayers' Alliance

:12:32.:12:36.

suggest one in ten transactions takes place at a duty level of 3% or

:12:36.:12:39.

more. And in monetary terms, the alliance reckons those transactions

:12:39.:12:42.

account for 69% of all the residential stamp duty in the

:12:42.:12:52.
:12:52.:12:55.

region. I think the Government's and statistics say that by 2017/18, the

:12:55.:12:59.

money they are raising nonstop duty from housing transactions will catch

:12:59.:13:04.

up with and even overtake the amount of taxpayer taking on alcohol and

:13:05.:13:08.

cigarettes. But is this just a problem for the

:13:08.:13:10.

well-off? The alliance's figures show huge variations in how

:13:10.:13:12.

different places in the East Midlands are affected.

:13:12.:13:16.

In Rutland - one of our most affluent areas - they calculate 36%

:13:16.:13:22.

of all housing sales attract 3% or more stamp duty. In Derbyshire

:13:22.:13:26.

Dales, it's 31%. But at the other end of the scale are places like

:13:26.:13:29.

Ashfield. There, only 3% of transactions are above the �250,000

:13:29.:13:32.

mark. In the cities - both Leicester and Nottingham for example - the

:13:32.:13:42.
:13:42.:13:43.

alliance figures show only 4% of transactions breached that barrier.

:13:43.:13:48.

If you look at specific areas like the East Midlands, 6000 transaction

:13:48.:13:54.

last year alone had to pay up �7,500 on top of their deposit and all the

:13:54.:13:57.

other fees that go along with moving house. This is a tax that hold

:13:57.:14:00.

people back. Well, the Government says nothing's

:14:00.:14:03.

going to change - for now, anyway. In a statement, the Treasury told

:14:03.:14:13.
:14:13.:14:35.

And you can put your house on that. This time two weeks ago, you'll

:14:35.:14:38.

probably remember it was chucking it down, although it would probably be

:14:38.:14:42.

more accurate to describe it as a deluge. A month's worth of rain

:14:42.:14:45.

swamped parts of Nottinghamshire in a matter of hours causing flash

:14:45.:14:48.

flooding and, for some, misery. The clear-up will take months. Quentin

:14:48.:14:52.

Rayner has returned to one of the worst hit towns to see how they're

:14:52.:14:57.

getting on. A fortnight ago, Nottinghamshire was

:14:57.:15:02.

officially the wettest waste in the UK. Three inches of rain fell in

:15:02.:15:06.

just a couple of hours. Streams, Dykes and Becks could not cope with

:15:06.:15:11.

a month's rain and they were overwhelmed. Southwell was turned

:15:11.:15:16.

into lakes. Two weeks on, the scars are still showing and residents like

:15:16.:15:20.

Jackie are coming to terms with being flooded for the second time in

:15:20.:15:25.

six years. I have a temporary set up in here, no dishwasher or washing

:15:25.:15:29.

machine. I have got gas and electricity so I can cook and then

:15:29.:15:32.

I'm coming through to my lounge where I will be living for the next

:15:32.:15:36.

six months in rather spartan conditions. With the dehumidifiers

:15:36.:15:41.

and finds wearing in the background. Where I am standing, they used to be

:15:41.:15:46.

a barn but that has been demolished and cleared away. During the flash

:15:46.:15:49.

flooding, the walls collapsed threatening this cottage. Thankfully

:15:49.:15:52.

it has been saved but it will be months before they have got the

:15:52.:15:56.

house back in order. The district council has sent out 3000

:15:56.:15:59.

questionnaires to assess the full impact of the flooding on the

:15:59.:16:04.

community. All the information that people give us will be fed back to

:16:04.:16:08.

the council and they are responsible for overseeing the watercourses and

:16:08.:16:15.

drains and hopefully that will feed into future action to improve things

:16:15.:16:18.

for the maintenance of the watercourses. and Jackie is already

:16:18.:16:24.

taking action by setting up a Flood Forum. Our main aim is to map the

:16:24.:16:28.

scale of the problem in the whole of the community and then feed that

:16:28.:16:33.

back to the authorities so that they are aware that they need to be

:16:33.:16:37.

clearing ditches, drains, whatever it takes to help the watercourses

:16:37.:16:41.

flow freely and also to help individual residents become more

:16:41.:16:45.

aware of how they can protect their own houses. the market town will

:16:45.:16:55.
:16:55.:16:58.

take months to dry out and that Derby's old hippodrome. A new study

:16:58.:17:03.

has just been published to reveal what the future could hold for the

:17:03.:17:09.

city's famous but now disused theatre. The report, from the City

:17:09.:17:11.

Council and English Heritage, outlines three possible uses for all

:17:11.:17:15.

or part of the building. The Green Lane Hippodrome Theatre, a

:17:15.:17:18.

much-loved landmark but one that has seen significant problems in the

:17:18.:17:22.

past half-decade. Back in 2008, part of the roof collapsed as developers

:17:22.:17:25.

worked on the building, the site has had several fires and some famous

:17:25.:17:34.

faces have tried to raise its profile. Now though, a feasibility

:17:34.:17:37.

study which was commissioned by the council and English Heritage suggest

:17:37.:17:43.

three possible options. The first is to restore the building back to a

:17:43.:17:49.

theatre costing �16 million. The second, to restore the front of the

:17:49.:17:52.

building, lay decking in the interior making an open space for a

:17:52.:17:58.

cafe, outdoor theatre or cinema. Or the third, to restore the front

:17:58.:18:08.
:18:08.:18:08.

developing the remainder into student accomodation. There are lots

:18:08.:18:14.

of areas that could do with money in terms of regeneration. At the end of

:18:14.:18:17.

the day, it is a listed building. It has been there for years.

:18:17.:18:20.

The Derby Hippodrome Restoration Trust also prefer the first option

:18:20.:18:27.

to use it as a theatre. It brings in the most money because that is what

:18:27.:18:34.

they want and it is because of a gap in the market, as they point out in

:18:34.:18:38.

the report. There is a gap in the market for a theatre of that size.

:18:38.:18:41.

The building remains in private ownership but the council is hoping

:18:41.:18:51.
:18:51.:19:11.

the findings to the study will take Coming up, getting back to sport

:19:11.:19:14.

after pregnancy - a very personal look. But first a reminder that once

:19:14.:19:17.

the football starts it comes thick and fast.

:19:17.:19:20.

Four ties in the first round of the League Cup tonight. Forest the only

:19:20.:19:24.

one to have a home draw - facing Hartlepool. Leicester City fans of a

:19:24.:19:27.

certain vintage may not relish a cup game against Wycombe, they'll still

:19:27.:19:30.

remember the FA Cup quarterfinal defeat of 2001. Mansfield will just

:19:30.:19:33.

be delighted to be back. So, sport and pregnancy. After

:19:33.:19:36.

having a baby, how soon should an elite athlete return to training?

:19:36.:19:39.

There were questions in the news when Zara Phillips rode while

:19:39.:19:43.

pregnant, and Paula Radcliffe, now a mum of two, faced similar criticism.

:19:43.:19:46.

The runner, who was based in Loughborough for a decade, has been

:19:46.:19:50.

speaking exclusively to Helen Barnes about her experience.

:19:50.:19:55.

Paula Radcliffe is normally very private about her personal life but

:19:55.:20:00.

while sharing precious photographs, she told me that becoming a mum is

:20:00.:20:10.
:20:10.:20:16.

a mum so I didn't ever want to sacrifice that and I couldn't see a

:20:16.:20:26.

time when my career was able to wind down but I didn't want it too late

:20:26.:20:31.

so I thought, why not have them both? It is a dilemma with many

:20:31.:20:35.

sportswomen. I carried on canoeing but felt concerned. Paula gave me

:20:35.:20:39.

training advice because there is little out there. She juggled two

:20:39.:20:44.

pregnancies and competing at the highest level. The first priority,

:20:44.:20:47.

instead of being whatever time you can run and the quality of your

:20:47.:20:52.

training, it immediately becomes the baby. I have the heart rate monitor

:20:52.:20:56.

to make sure I did not push too hard. Did you deal with any negative

:20:56.:21:03.

comments? Not really, most people were supportive and nice. A few

:21:03.:21:06.

people were looking surprised as you would run across past them and they

average woman is advised not to return to sport for six weeks after

:21:15.:21:19.

giving birth but she was back running after just 12 days. With

:21:19.:21:24.

hindsight, it was too soon because I have had a long labour and quite

:21:24.:21:28.

difficult and my body just had not recovered, the ligaments were not

:21:28.:21:34.

strong enough so that contributed to a sacred stress fracture. After the

:21:34.:21:43.

second one, I did not run for three weeks. -- sacral stress fracture.

has put sport into perspective for her. It reminds you what is

important and brings normality back and makes you see how lucky you are,

to have them. Finally, another runner - Richard

:21:56.:22:00.

Whitehead - and an extraordinary challenge. The Paralympic champion

:22:00.:22:03.

was running with youngsters on Nottingham's beach today. Slightly

:22:03.:22:08.

unusual preparation for his plan to run from John O'Groats to Lands End.

:22:08.:22:17.

40 marathons in 40 days, all for charity. Everyday, it will be hard,

:22:17.:22:23.

getting up in the morning, running 42 kilometres. It is not a fast pace

:22:23.:22:27.

but I am having to do it for a month but for me, I am giving up one month

:22:27.:22:31.

of my life to hopefully support the legacy of great written within

:22:31.:22:36.

sport. So I feel it is a small part of my life that I can give and I

:22:36.:22:39.

feel I have looked up the challenge now with the support my team give me

:22:39.:22:45.

around me. Good luck to him. If you want to look up more about

:22:50.:22:55.

man. A lovely chat with Paula, there.

Now, for the first in a new series of reports on young entrepreneurs

:22:58.:23:02.

who've set up their own businesses. Tonight, we meet a teenager whose

:23:02.:23:06.

company promises to deliver anything the customer is craving. 19-year-old

:23:06.:23:09.

Osh McDonnell from Melton in Leicestershire came up with the idea

:23:09.:23:12.

for a delivery business with a difference. And, in tough economic

:23:12.:23:15.

times, is determined to make it into a thriving success. Rebecca Sheeran

:23:15.:23:25.
:23:25.:23:28.

Meet the teenager who delivers it all, whatever you want, Osh

:23:28.:23:33.

McDonnell will deliver it. He came it -- he came up with the idea in

:23:33.:23:40.

school. My slogan is we will deliver anything but babies! I thought,

:23:40.:23:44.

because it is a fun business, so it needed a fund slogan. A hard day's

:23:44.:23:50.

work. You take off your work clothes, and then you have

:23:51.:23:57.

everything delivered. Dog food, I do a lot of prescriptions. What is the

:23:57.:24:02.

most random thing you have delivered? I have taken a cat to the

:24:02.:24:06.

vets and back so if I ever have dangerous animals, I would not like

:24:06.:24:14.

to transport a steak or anything like that. -- a snake.I have got

:24:14.:24:17.

some milk and chocolate and now it is going to the next place. The

:24:17.:24:24.

worst part is probably the fact that it is 24/7. Especially at the

:24:24.:24:31.

weekends, all through the night. The best part is meeting people, really.

:24:31.:24:36.

I have put old lady's shopping in the fridge for them. I have met

:24:36.:24:41.

people, young people, old people. I just picked up the final

:24:41.:24:44.

prescription and going to the delivery. You create your own job.

:24:44.:24:51.

You don't need to find one, you can make one. And then you can employ

:24:51.:24:57.

people and help the community. How you doing? Good, thanks.There you

:24:57.:25:00.

are, there is your milk and chocolate and your prescription.

:25:00.:25:07.

That will be �9.50. I will grab your change. Also staff we cannot spare

:25:07.:25:12.

off the floor here so Osh will go and pick up prescriptions and drop

:25:12.:25:16.

off samples on things like that so it is rarely enforced. From meals to

:25:16.:25:20.

medicine, it is all in one day's work for this entrepreneur

:25:20.:25:28.

determined to grow his empire. Well, good luck, I hope he becomes a

:25:28.:25:33.

multimillionaire. How lovely. Very enterprising. But can he deliver

:25:33.:25:43.
:25:43.:25:44.

fact, we have got the wet weather behind us and what a difference 24

:25:44.:25:48.

hours makes because we are dry outside and although it has been

:25:48.:25:51.

cloudy at times across the East Midlands, we are starting to see

:25:51.:25:55.

clear spells slowly developing. The cloud gradually clearing from the

:25:55.:25:59.

south of the region first. Remaining dry into the early hours of tomorrow

:25:59.:26:03.

morning and just turning a bit misty out in the rural areas with a

:26:03.:26:07.

minimum temperature overnight 13 Celsius, that is within towns and

:26:07.:26:10.

cities so slightly lower in rural areas. It certainly felt cooler last

:26:10.:26:15.

night, trying to get sleep was a bit better but we are starting off with

:26:15.:26:19.

some early morning sunshine but again similar to today, the car

:26:19.:26:22.

develops into the afternoon and there is a stronger chance of seeing

:26:22.:26:26.

the odd light shower. Lots of them further towards the West Midlands

:26:26.:26:29.

rather than the East Redlands but just the occasional light shower

:26:29.:26:34.

into the afternoon and it could be slightly sharper as well, localised

:26:34.:26:39.

heavy showers as we progress through the afternoon. Daytime temperatures

:26:39.:26:43.

in the sunshine, 21 Celsius at the highest. Still feeling pleasant and

:26:43.:26:46.

the north-easterly breeze tomorrow. We have got a weather front around

:26:46.:26:51.

by the time we get to Thursday and into Friday. Thursday will be a nice

:26:51.:26:54.

day again, the cloud developing with a slim chance of a shower but we

:26:54.:26:58.

also have this weather front waiting to come in on its way in for Friday

:26:58.:27:01.

but it is weakening, the me up against a ridge of high pressure so

:27:02.:27:05.

it will increase the cloud for a time and produce a few showers as

:27:05.:27:10.

well. Temperatures at around 20 Celsius and as we get closer to the

:27:10.:27:15.

weekend, if you have got any plans, we have low pressure close by, it
