extraordinary row over council regalia. I will be reporting from

:00:10.:00:13.

the town where the mayor has been banned from wearing his chains of

:00:13.:00:17.

office after being accused of parading in bling. Also tonight,

:00:17.:00:21.

anger as personal tributes to a young woman killed in a cliff woman

:00:21.:00:31.
:00:31.:00:33.

why Britain's store cupboard is bare. And Ghost crosses the great

:00:34.:00:43.
:00:44.:00:55.

divide. One of film's steamiest programme. First tonight, a

:00:55.:00:58.

political row as a mayor's official regalia is described as "bling". The

:00:58.:01:01.

bust-up has erupted in the Nottinghamshire town of Mansfield

:01:01.:01:06.

over who is entitled to wear the civic chains of office. Its

:01:06.:01:10.

directly-elected Mayor Tony Egginton has been banned from wearing them.

:01:10.:01:13.

Instead, the Labour Party says the council's chairman should have the

:01:13.:01:21.

honour. Over to Mansfield now and our political editor, John Hess.

:01:21.:01:25.

It was Karl Marx who famously said that the workers of the world had

:01:25.:01:34.

nothing to lose but their chains. This evening, inside Mansfield Civic

:01:34.:01:38.

Centre, there is a worker far from happy at losing his chains, the

:01:38.:01:45.

mayor. Independently elected 11 years ago,

:01:45.:01:49.

proudly wearing his chains of office on a day of enormous pride for

:01:49.:01:54.

Mansfield, the Olympic homecoming of Rebecca Adlington. But the opening

:01:54.:01:57.

of the new bus station this spring could turn out to be the last big

:01:58.:02:02.

event in which he could wear his chains. The main issue for me is,

:02:02.:02:06.

for the people to enjoy seeing their elected first citizen with the chain

:02:06.:02:12.

of office on, particularly the children. Today, in Mansfield Civic

:02:12.:02:18.

Centre, he showed me the gallery of past council chairman. Labour, now

:02:18.:02:22.

the majority party, says that the chairman should wear the chains, not

:02:22.:02:27.

the elected mayor. He should really be concentrating on running

:02:27.:02:30.

Mansfield District Council, as a medium sized business, and driving

:02:30.:02:35.

the district forward. This is not 20th-century politics. This is

:02:35.:02:40.

parading around in bling. They would normally be here, in a display of

:02:40.:02:44.

civic regalia. But this has become such a sensitive issue that they are

:02:44.:02:48.

locked in a safe and not even the mayor can put them on. What is your

:02:48.:02:54.

reaction? I am disgusted, frankly. He is our first citizen...

:02:54.:02:59.

governorate ombudsman has been asked to intervene. The constitution

:02:59.:03:04.

clearly says that he has the right to carry out ceremonial duties.

:03:04.:03:08.

you are inviting the mayor to an event, you expect to turn up with

:03:09.:03:13.

ceremonial chains. Does it matter? As long as he does a good job for

:03:13.:03:16.

what he has been paid to do, I don't know if it matters if he wears them

:03:16.:03:21.

or not. Mansfield was one of the leaders in having a town mayor, so I

:03:21.:03:26.

think it gives a little bit of a difference. Sadly, rather than doing

:03:26.:03:30.

the work they should be doing for the people that elected them, they

:03:30.:03:33.

are concentrating on trying to undermine me all of the time. I find

:03:33.:03:38.

that sad. Until it is sorted, this Olympic photograph could be the

:03:38.:03:44.

nearest that he gets to the chains. This is a row over politics, rather

:03:44.:03:48.

than bling. There is no sign of it being resolved. In the meantime, I

:03:48.:03:53.

am advised that they are packed safely away inside the Civic

:03:53.:04:02.

The family of a woman killed by a cliff fall on the Dorset coast have

:04:02.:04:06.

been asked to stop leaving tributes near the spot where she died. A

:04:06.:04:10.

holiday camp had agreed to a bench being placed on its land in

:04:10.:04:14.

Charlotte Blackman's memory. But it says items left there for the recent

:04:14.:04:19.

first anniversary of her death make it resemble a "shrine." Charlotte's

:04:19.:04:29.
:04:29.:04:30.

family say they're shocked and Blackman's death, her family

:04:30.:04:35.

returned to the Dorset coastline where she died. The 22-year-old, was

:04:35.:04:40.

caught in the path of a devastating landslide. Her family had already

:04:40.:04:44.

placed a memorial bench in the grounds of the holiday camp where

:04:44.:04:49.

they had been staying at the time of the tragedy. This time, they left a

:04:49.:04:54.

view floral tributes and a couple of small mementos chosen by her younger

:04:54.:04:59.

siblings. After your recent visit, a number of items were left on the

:04:59.:05:02.

memorial bench... Now her mum has received a letter from a holiday

:05:02.:05:07.

camp, asking them not to leave anything else there. We do not feel

:05:07.:05:12.

it appropriate for the area around the bench to be treated as a shrine.

:05:12.:05:17.

I was in shock, quite disappointed and angry. Very angry. I just

:05:17.:05:21.

couldn't believe it, really. They don't want to, sort of, remember

:05:21.:05:25.

Charlotte, that she was a girl that was killed there. They are trying to

:05:25.:05:29.

push it away and forget that part of it. We went to walk on the beach,

:05:29.:05:37.

five of us went down and only four of us came back. The holiday Park at

:05:38.:05:42.

Dorset declined to comment to the BBC. Charlotte's dad says she now

:05:42.:05:47.

wants to bring the memorial bench back to Derbyshire. I would like it

:05:47.:05:52.

to be there, as a reminder, for families to sit on and enjoy the

:05:52.:05:57.

view of Fresh water. To sit and contemplate a little while, and also

:05:57.:06:02.

to remind people that these cliffs are dangerous. Charlotte's family

:06:02.:06:08.

visit her grave every day. They say that is, unashamedly, a shrine to

:06:08.:06:13.

their much loved daughter and sister.

:06:13.:06:17.

Still to come - the young man who woke up and smelt the coffee. A

:06:17.:06:20.

jobless 19-year-old takes matters into his own hands and sets up a

:06:20.:06:30.
:06:30.:06:32.

In a first for the UK, scientists at the University of Leicester have

:06:32.:06:36.

created a database of cat DNA that has already helped to convict a

:06:36.:06:42.

killer. The feline research was used to link the body of dead man with

:06:42.:06:46.

the main suspect in a police investigation on the south coast.

:06:46.:06:49.

There are now hopes it'll help lead to more criminal convictions, as

:06:49.:06:59.
:06:59.:07:04.

University of Leicester where scientists have collected DNA from

:07:04.:07:08.

152 cup from around the country. -- cats. It is that feline research

:07:08.:07:14.

that helped convict David Hilde of manslaughter. Scientist linked his

:07:14.:07:18.

cat's further with eight feline hairs found on the curtain, wrapped

:07:18.:07:23.

around a dismembered torso of David Guy from Hampshire. We were able to

:07:23.:07:31.

say that the suspect's Carter shared its profile with around 2% of the UK

:07:31.:07:38.

population. -- the suspect's cat. That provided good evidence able to

:07:38.:07:42.

link it to the hairs on the curtain. That provided a direct link between

:07:42.:07:49.

David Hilde and the deposition of David Guy's body. This is the first

:07:49.:07:53.

time cat DNA has been used in a criminal trial in the UK. But

:07:54.:07:58.

scientists is hoped that once they have published their database it

:07:58.:08:03.

will help solve many more criminal investigations. I think it could be

:08:03.:08:07.

quite significant. The transfer of fibres has been a long established

:08:07.:08:16.

method. We are adding in that cat hair can be linked to individuals,

:08:16.:08:21.

places or other individuals. It is through the transfer of this animal

:08:21.:08:29.

DNA trace evidence. As any cat owner will know, it is difficult to avoid

:08:29.:08:33.

feline fur. An irritation for many, but one that is welcomed by criminal

:08:33.:08:38.

investigators. Six people arrested as part of an

:08:38.:08:41.

investigation into the death of a resident at a Nottingham care home

:08:41.:08:44.

have been bailed. 86-year-old Ivy Atkin died shortly after the closure

:08:44.:08:49.

of Autumn Grange in Sherwood Rise last year. The Care Quality

:08:49.:08:53.

Commission had raised concerns about standards of care there. Yesterday,

:08:53.:08:58.

11 people, five men and six women were arrested. Two of the men and

:08:58.:09:02.

three women were released onn bail last night.

:09:02.:09:05.

A group of houses in Nottingham has won a prestigious national award for

:09:05.:09:10.

their eco-friendly development. 38 new town houses on Green Street in

:09:10.:09:13.

the Meadows, were named as one of the Best Residential Developments in

:09:13.:09:17.

the UK Property Awards. The Nottingham developer, Blueprint

:09:17.:09:24.

could now go on to compete in the Production at the historic Denby

:09:24.:09:28.

Pottery in Derbyshire has been affected by a dispute over pay.

:09:28.:09:31.

Members of the ceramics workers' union Unity set up a picket line

:09:31.:09:36.

outside the factory this morning. Managers say it's regrettable that

:09:36.:09:40.

they can't offer the staff a salary increase this year. But union

:09:40.:09:49.

officials say it's just the latest pay freeze. These people are not

:09:49.:09:54.

greedy. They are saying, come on, six years? We have had two pay rises

:09:54.:09:58.

in six years. People are working overtime and taking on temporary

:09:58.:10:01.

labour. Those are not the signs that we sometimes come across with a

:10:02.:10:07.

company that has got problems. are hoping if we can have a better

:10:07.:10:11.

year this year, when we get to this time next year, hopefully normal

:10:11.:10:15.

wage negotiations resumed and we can offer a cost of living increase.

:10:15.:10:17.

That is dependent on this year's results.

:10:17.:10:20.

Next tonight, it may surprise you to learn that in Britain we produce

:10:21.:10:25.

less than two thirds of the food we consume. The National Farmers' Union

:10:25.:10:29.

has calculated that if all the food produced in the UK in a year were

:10:29.:10:32.

stored and eaten from January the first, the cupboard would be bare by

:10:32.:10:38.

today. The NFU in the East Midlands claims that Britain is becoming more

:10:38.:10:41.

and more reliant on imports and more needs to be done to support the

:10:41.:10:51.
:10:51.:10:53.

region's farmers. Helen Astle busiest time of the year at his farm

:10:53.:10:58.

in Caldicot, in Rutland. In the next fortnight, the wheat will be

:10:58.:11:02.

harvested. It will then be used to make biscuits. But Andrew is worried

:11:02.:11:07.

about the future. My concern is that if we do not get behind British

:11:07.:11:11.

farmers today, we will not be here to produce the food for tomorrow

:11:11.:11:14.

because the population of the UK is increasing and we need to increase

:11:14.:11:18.

production. We need to back British farmers today so that we are there,

:11:18.:11:24.

ready to produce food, for future generations. Britain used to produce

:11:24.:11:29.

75% of its own food. That has dropped to 60%. The idea behind the

:11:29.:11:35.

NFU campaign is to encourage others to buy British. And also, to reverse

:11:35.:11:38.

the trend. The organisation wants the farming community to be given

:11:38.:11:42.

the confidence to invest in the future. It is in everybody's

:11:42.:11:49.

interest to produce more food. If we put all of the food that we produce

:11:49.:11:53.

in the UK in a pile on the 1st of January, the 14th of August is the

:11:53.:11:57.

date at which that pile would be exhausted, we run out of food and we

:11:57.:12:01.

must go abroad to import more. Every year, we produce a little less. We

:12:01.:12:07.

are just trying to draw attention to that. As well as tended to his crops

:12:07.:12:10.

and sheep, Andrew helped look after the countryside. At times, he says

:12:10.:12:17.

he is overwhelmed by paperwork. amount of red tape means that I am

:12:17.:12:20.

almost farming with one hand tied behind my back. There are

:12:20.:12:23.

restrictions on the amount of fertiliser, the amount of crop

:12:23.:12:26.

protection products that we can use. Other countries do not have the

:12:27.:12:32.

same restrictions, meaning they are free to use these things and produce

:12:32.:12:36.

cheaper. It is a sunny day in Caldicot, but Andrew paints a bleak

:12:36.:12:41.

picture for the future. If we cannot afford to grow the crops, we could

:12:41.:12:44.

see the scenario where there are food riots in cities and shortages

:12:44.:12:49.

in shops. As Andrew prepares to harvest his crop, he is urging

:12:49.:12:55.

others to back his efforts and I British. -- buy British.

:12:55.:12:59.

Earlier I spoke to the Agriculture Minister David Heath. He told me he

:12:59.:13:05.

agrees with much of what the NFU is calling for. The fact is, we produce

:13:05.:13:09.

extremely good food in this country. I want British people to have the

:13:09.:13:12.

opportunity to eat that food. I think that there are still many

:13:12.:13:17.

incidences where we see things on supermarket shelves that could be

:13:17.:13:21.

produced in Britain, where they are imported from abroad. At the same

:13:21.:13:24.

time, there are things that we do not produce, which we will always

:13:24.:13:28.

have to import. We are not going to suddenly start producing coffee

:13:28.:13:34.

beans or lemons. So, let's recognise the fact we are a trading nation. We

:13:34.:13:39.

do need to import some things, but let's recognise the quality of good

:13:39.:13:44.

British produce. What can you do as a government without sparking a

:13:44.:13:48.

trade war to prevent unnecessary imports of food that we can produce

:13:48.:13:52.

perfectly well here? We are keen to ensure that people understand the

:13:52.:13:56.

very high production and welfare conditions under which, for

:13:56.:14:00.

instance, meat is produced in this country, which is not always the

:14:00.:14:04.

case overseas. At the end of the day, the consumer has to make a

:14:04.:14:08.

choice. When they go into a supermarket, they have to decide

:14:08.:14:12.

what they pick off the shelves, or perhaps they may prefer to go to a

:14:12.:14:17.

local butcher and ask exactly where the Filatov meat came from. Does the

:14:17.:14:24.

NFU have a point when it says that made decisions made in Europe have

:14:24.:14:29.

seen farmers worrying more about the protection of the environment than

:14:29.:14:34.

producing food? I don't think that is true at all. I think the two

:14:34.:14:37.

things are entirely compatible. We need sustainable agriculture. That

:14:37.:14:42.

means a sustainable in terms of viable in economic terms, but also

:14:42.:14:47.

in terms of the environment. I see no reason at all why we should not

:14:47.:14:50.

continue to produce top quality food in sufficient quantities and protect

:14:50.:14:53.

the environment at the same time. Thank you very much.

:14:53.:14:57.

Unemployment in the UK has fallen slightly - but gone up in the East

:14:57.:15:00.

Midlands for the second quarter in a row.

:15:00.:15:03.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics show that in the

:15:03.:15:07.

three months to June, the jobless total in the East Midlands was

:15:07.:15:13.

181,000. That's an increase of 4,000 on the previous quarter. The

:15:13.:15:18.

unemployment rate here is now 7.9%. Nationally the jobless total fell by

:15:18.:15:24.

4,000, leaving 2.51 million out of work. Well, one teenager has found

:15:24.:15:28.

an ideal way of avoiding unemployment. He's started his own

:15:28.:15:32.

business. 19-year-old Lee Vernon from Mansfield admits he's struggled

:15:32.:15:36.

to find a permanent job because of a lack of experience. But he recently

:15:36.:15:40.

decided to take matters into his own hands, as Rebecca Brice has been

:15:40.:15:50.
:15:50.:16:00.

would not look twice at a ruined art deco cinema. But Lee Vernon saw it

:16:00.:16:08.

as an opportunity. Is this your work? It is their work, they are

:16:08.:16:15.

teaching me the recipes. The theme and food is inspired by his Russian

:16:15.:16:20.

stepmother. But he is inspired by a very un-Soviet spirit of free

:16:20.:16:24.

enterprise. I don't want to work somewhere, with the hope of being

:16:24.:16:27.

promoted, and then say I am never going anywhere. I don't want a

:16:27.:16:31.

dead-end job. I like a challenge and I like to learn something myself.

:16:31.:16:34.

That's cool, I never really learned anything because somebody was

:16:34.:16:39.

telling me. But I make a mistake, I will do it again. It doesn't feel

:16:39.:16:47.

real yet. I don't think it has quite sunk in. I have always just been

:16:47.:16:51.

Del-Boy, doing the market stalls. To have something like this, it has not

:16:51.:16:55.

sunk in yet. It didn't sink in with the banks either, because he says

:16:55.:17:00.

they were reluctant to lend him money to get him started. The bags

:17:00.:17:04.

let me down big time. They promised me good things and let me down.

:17:04.:17:10.

Where did the finance come from? Google there is something called a

:17:10.:17:15.

start-up loan. I got accepted for a �10,000 loan because I had a good

:17:15.:17:20.

business plan, which will probably be gone in a couple of weeks in this

:17:20.:17:25.

place. But I had a lot of family input, doing all the hours that we

:17:25.:17:31.

can. The whole family put timing, more just handing out leaflets.

:17:31.:17:35.

Every nail, plasterboard and wire, where we could, we have done it

:17:35.:17:39.

ourselves. Obviously we had to have an electrician is in for some of it.

:17:39.:17:42.

But we had such a tight budget we thought, maybe not, but he has done

:17:42.:17:49.

it. He is 19 now, but steaming straight ahead with a 10-year plan

:17:49.:17:56.

for his coffee empire. I will have 60 shops in ten years. I might even

:17:56.:18:06.
:18:06.:18:16.

have one a year. Ten. -- six shops rising star of the business world to

:18:16.:18:20.

stars of a more celestial kind. If you did not see these last night,

:18:20.:18:23.

not much chance of seeing them tonight. The cloud is back and so is

:18:23.:18:33.
:18:33.:18:39.

the rain. But I can offer you some link to sport. But I don't think I

:18:39.:18:46.

can use it, as Colin is presenting. Coming up - the Leicester Riders

:18:46.:18:49.

basketball players flying the GB Flag. But news first, because Derby

:18:49.:18:51.

County Manager Nigel Clough says he's confident young talent Will

:18:51.:18:55.

Hughes will still be at the club when the transfer window closes.

:18:55.:18:58.

18-year-old Hughes played in England under 21's 6-0 thrashing of Scotland

:18:58.:19:02.

last night. He didn't score himself but it was a performance that would

:19:02.:19:06.

have done his growing reputation no harm - a reputation that has seen

:19:06.:19:16.
:19:16.:19:18.

Liverpool become the latest club position. He is not for sale unless

:19:18.:19:23.

somebody really comes in and makes the club a spectacular offer. Even

:19:23.:19:29.

then, we would hope to retain him for this season. That is for his

:19:29.:19:32.

good as much as anything. We are building a team around him and we

:19:32.:19:34.

want him around for as long as we can.

:19:34.:19:38.

An update on the cricket, because all three counties were in YB40

:19:38.:19:41.

action last night - but all three lost! The key games were those at

:19:41.:19:44.

Trent Bridge where Notts Outlaws could have sealed a semifinal place,

:19:44.:19:47.

but got blown away by Worcestershire Royals. And at Bristol, where

:19:47.:19:51.

Leicestershire Foxes made it all too easy for Gloucestershire. But in a

:19:51.:19:54.

very tight group, the Foxes could still make the semis. Derbyshire,

:19:54.:19:56.

already out of the hunt, were comfortably beaten by Lancashire.

:19:56.:19:59.

Big congratulations to Mansfield's Paralympic swimmer Ollie Hynd, who

:19:59.:20:03.

became a world champion last night. Ollie found himself just behind

:20:03.:20:07.

going in to the final turn of his 200 metres medley final. But he

:20:07.:20:12.

powered though to win the gold medal and set a new European record. Older

:20:12.:20:15.

brother Sam Hynd just missed out on a medal though finishing in fourth

:20:15.:20:18.

place. Basketball now, because Leicester

:20:18.:20:21.

Riders Captain Drew Sullivan has a mission - to make sure the Great

:20:22.:20:30.

Britain side fulfil their potential. GB disappointed at the London

:20:30.:20:36.

Olympics - and then lost their funding. After a big campaign, they

:20:36.:20:40.

got it back. But only for a year. What happens next all depends on

:20:40.:20:49.

next month's European Championships. This is a huge few months for

:20:49.:20:52.

basketball's national side and they are going all-out to make it count.

:20:52.:20:57.

They are training the England from all teams at the astonishingly well

appointed St George's Park in Burton. Their coach comes straight

:21:00.:21:05.

from the top league in the world, the NBA. I'm truly enjoying it, it's

:21:05.:21:09.

a great group of players and a great group of people. What they are

:21:09.:21:12.

doing, that I appreciate, is that they are going to make it difficult

:21:12.:21:17.

for me to turn this roster down. started well enough, a comprehensive

:21:17.:21:27.
:21:27.:21:32.

defeat of Porto Rico in front of a are going to play, which I think all

:21:32.:21:38.

of the players here, they are embracing it and it's a matter of

:21:38.:21:43.

going out and putting it into a game situation. At St George's Park,

:21:43.:21:48.

everybody knows how key next month's champion chips are. Future

:21:48.:21:51.

funding depends on a good result in Slovenia. But they can't afford to

:21:51.:21:56.

start thinking about that. We will be prepared, but we have to focus on

:21:56.:22:00.

the task at hand or we will be overwhelmed, thinking, we have to

:22:00.:22:05.

win five games. We don't, we have to win one game at a time. Among the

:22:05.:22:09.

changes, a willingness to look at new faces. Jamell Anderson played a

:22:09.:22:12.

full part in the Championship winning year, and this is his

:22:12.:22:18.

reward. Unbelievable, from start to finish. The staff, facilities, the

:22:18.:22:22.

feeling of being there. It feels incredible. It's an amazing

:22:22.:22:29.

opportunity for me. Leicester Riders season is approaching as well. Can

:22:29.:22:33.

they help the team repeat? This team's year is better than it was

:22:33.:22:38.

last year. I think we have upgraded every position, to be honest.

:22:38.:22:44.

going to do what we did last year, focus on winning and play well.

:22:44.:22:47.

seasons and they can break, for Team GB, this could be one. We will keep

:22:47.:22:52.

an eye on how they do. They have a load of warm up games before the

:22:52.:22:54.

European Championships. It's a production on a grand scale.

:22:54.:22:58.

Just 18 cast members but more than 100 people behind the scenes making

:22:58.:23:02.

it all happen. This week, Ghost the Musical arrived in the East Midlands

:23:02.:23:07.

and with it came special effects, illusions and state of the art

:23:07.:23:17.
:23:17.:23:26.

technology. Angelina Socci has been technically complex shows to come to

:23:26.:23:30.

Nottingham. The cast of ghost of the musical are preparing for their

:23:30.:23:34.

second performance in the city. But it is not just the cast on stage

:23:34.:23:37.

that have a busy few hours ahead of them. Shows have different

:23:37.:23:42.

challenges, whether it is a big cast or big orchestra. The real challenge

:23:42.:23:47.

of Ghost is the technology. It is such a fast-moving show. We have

:23:47.:23:51.

nearly 40 scenes in the show, so the set is constantly moving. You cannot

:23:51.:23:56.

move backstage for all of the equipment. It was brought in ten

:23:56.:24:00.

articulated lorries. The whole production has taken 50 hours to set

:24:00.:24:04.

up. Where we are now, this is the automation computer, one of the most

:24:04.:24:09.

important in the show. It controls all of the flying scenery, that goes

:24:09.:24:12.

on and off stage, the lighting bars and everything is controlled by this

:24:12.:24:17.

one computer. Quite an important part of the show. What would happen

:24:17.:24:21.

if this went wrong? We give people a free drink and people sit around for

:24:21.:24:30.

a while! You have got a few hundred thousand LED lights to maintain?

:24:30.:24:35.

Yes, we have. They become a really big part of the set. Things like the

:24:35.:24:40.

subway scene, the cast appear inside the video. The slots between the

:24:40.:24:43.

LEDs, it achieves a gauze effect, so you can have people within the

:24:43.:24:49.

video. It is full of special effects and allusions designed by the man

:24:49.:24:52.

responsible for many of the magic props in the Harry Potter films. For

:24:52.:24:57.

the cast, there are different challenges to worry about. For the

:24:57.:25:01.

actor, the hardest thing is backstage. The footprint of the

:25:01.:25:05.

stage stays exactly the same. Your path when you leave the stage, how

:25:05.:25:08.

do I get to the other side, where is my quick change, where is my

:25:09.:25:14.

dressing room, where is the toilet? After his two-year run here, the

:25:14.:25:20.

team will spend two weeks dismantling the set before starting

:25:20.:25:26.

all over again in Bristol. It is very easy to get lost in that

:25:26.:25:31.

theatre. You need to have a ball of string. I ended up in the theatre

:25:31.:25:38.

next door, by accident. You can go underground, it is weird.

:25:38.:25:45.

Pyrotechnics in the weather last A roller-coaster of whether in the

:25:45.:25:50.

next few days. Some rain, sun and warmth. The warmth is coming behind

:25:50.:25:54.

this warm front. It is bringing us some rain and you can see the

:25:54.:25:57.

isobars squeezing together. It is going to be fairly windy over the

:25:57.:26:01.

next 24 hours or so. Damp weather, fairly breezy conditions through

:26:01.:26:05.

tomorrow. Do not write tomorrow off. There will be some sunshine to

:26:05.:26:10.

enjoy. In the sunshine, temperatures peaking into the mid-20s. We have

:26:10.:26:14.

seen a bit of everything today. Lovely sunshine around this morning.

:26:14.:26:18.

The clouds have been increasing this afternoon and the warm front is

:26:18.:26:22.

bringing spotty outbreaks of rain. The rain is not particularly heavy

:26:22.:26:26.

or persistent, but it will be on and off through tonight. It might pay up

:26:26.:26:35.

through western parts of Derbyshire, but no scarred -- stargazing.

:26:35.:26:41.

Tonight, we are looking at Lowes of 16 or 17 degrees, very muggy. A

:26:41.:26:49.

completely different feel to things. The clouds will break up in the

:26:49.:26:52.

afternoon. Where we get the break we will be seeing some sunshine and the

:26:52.:26:58.

temperatures will be increasing. 223 or 24 degrees. A few light showers

:26:58.:27:06.

here and there, but most of us staying dry. Another weather front

:27:06.:27:10.

moving through tomorrow night. Some heavy and persistent rain to move

:27:10.:27:13.

through an Thursday night and through tomorrow morning. It might

:27:13.:27:17.

strike its heels on Friday morning, but it will finally tearaway.

:27:17.:27:24.

Brighter, drier weather behind that. Lots of Sunday. -- sunshine. Highs
