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

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight: a third of Derbyshire's fire stations could close to save

:00:08.:00:19.

money. Dozens of firefighters' jobs could also go. Bosses say the

:00:19.:00:25.

service has to change. We have had a reduction of 62% in fires, therefore

:00:25.:00:29.

we have got to change our delivery service. Also tonight, Steve

:00:29.:00:35.

McClaren is the new man at Pride Park. Hopefully Things Will Work

:00:35.:00:43.

Out. Plus, As A Giant New Landmark Is Moved Into Position, There Is

:00:43.:00:46.

Talk Of Another Tramline For Nottingham. And the grand design

:00:46.:00:51.

with big ideas. Good evening and welcome to Monday's

:00:51.:01:06.

programme. First tonight, a third of Derbyshire's fire stations could

:01:06.:01:08.

close under major changes planned for the county's fire service.

:01:08.:01:14.

Budget cuts of around 40% could also lead to the loss of around a quarter

:01:14.:01:20.

of full—time firefighters' posts. Tonight the government has said the

:01:20.:01:23.

fire service may need to share its resources in order to save the

:01:23.:01:26.

money. Well, our reporter Simon Hare is at

:01:26.:01:30.

one of the stations under threat. Simon, what more do we know about

:01:30.:01:38.

these proposals? This fire station in Derby was only redeveloped in

:01:39.:01:44.

March last year. Under these proposals, all three fire stations

:01:44.:01:50.

in Derby could close and be replaced with one single, central station. It

:01:50.:01:56.

is because of a predicted 40% cut in the fire service budget over the

:01:56.:02:00.

next few years. These changes have been described to me today as the

:02:00.:02:05.

biggest shake—up in fire service cover in Derbyshire since 1947.

:02:05.:02:11.

Derbyshire firefighters at a house that was struck by lightning in

:02:11.:02:15.

July. Under the proposals announced today, the nearest fire station to

:02:15.:02:18.

this incident in the future will be at Ripley and Ilkeston. Other

:02:18.:02:26.

closures would see all three fire stations in Derby merged into one

:02:26.:02:30.

new Central Station. There are currently 31 fire stations across

:02:30.:02:33.

Derbyshire. Under the proposed closures and mergers, that would go

:02:33.:02:38.

down to 20. 78 full—time firefighter posts would also be lost. That is

:02:39.:02:43.

around a quarter of the current total. Over the last ten years the

:02:43.:02:51.

service has seen a reduction of 50% in its call ratio, but we haven't

:02:51.:02:54.

made any significant change to how we deliver service. We have had a

:02:54.:02:59.

reduction of 62% in fires. We have got to change how we deliver the

:02:59.:03:05.

service. When people pick up the phone and dial 999, is a vehicle

:03:05.:03:12.

going to turn up? That will happen and it is a guarantee. The

:03:12.:03:18.

government's minister has said savings could be made in other ways.

:03:18.:03:24.

We should be looking at whether it shares across boundaries. And how it

:03:24.:03:28.

shares with other parts of the blue light service. The local authority

:03:28.:03:32.

is well could make sure there is not this duplication of rising costs.

:03:32.:03:36.

And that the money is funnelled into the front line service that we love,

:03:36.:03:42.

protect and want to keep. Tonight, there is a branch meeting of the

:03:42.:03:47.

Fire Brigades Union taking place. Earlier, I spoke to the chairman of

:03:47.:03:54.

the fur brigade union for his reaction to these proposals —— Fire

:03:54.:03:59.

Brigades Union. The implications of this, the resilience within the

:03:59.:04:05.

organisation, is very worrying. Could be life—threatening? I would

:04:05.:04:13.

hate to sensationalise this but potentially it could. Talking about

:04:13.:04:17.

the response times of up to 75% of households will receive a fire

:04:17.:04:20.

service within ten minutes, that will be reduced. That talk of lives

:04:20.:04:29.

being put at risk has been dismissed as alarmist by the government

:04:30.:04:32.

tonight. The finer details of all the closures will be put on the fire

:04:32.:04:37.

service website from tomorrow. The public will then have 12 weeks in

:04:37.:04:43.

which they can have their say. Thank you. Other news, the house in Derby

:04:43.:04:50.

were six children were killed by their parents has been demolished.

:04:50.:04:54.

Workmen have been taking 18 Victory Road, where the children of Mick and

:04:54.:04:58.

Mairead Philpott died in May last year apart. The house next door has

:04:58.:05:02.

already been knocked down. The work is expected to last another week.

:05:02.:05:06.

New housing will then be built on the site.

:05:06.:05:08.

A man's been 20—year—old Antoin Akpom died after

:05:08.:05:18.

an attack on Kent Street in the city earlier this month. A 19—year—old

:05:18.:05:21.

was arrested in Cardiff last night. Another 19—year—old has already been

:05:21.:05:24.

charged with Mr Akpom's murder and will appear at Leicester Crown Court

:05:24.:05:27.

at a later date. Still to come: A tricky manoeuvre in

:05:27.:05:31.

the middle of the night. A tram bridge is moved into position over

:05:31.:05:33.

Nottingham's ring road. And today there's talk of another

:05:33.:05:37.

line being added to the tram network.

:05:37.:05:47.

seven people have now been charged with murdering four members of the

:05:47.:06:00.

same family in a house fire in Leicester. The bodies of Shehnila

:06:00.:06:03.

Taufiq and her three teenage children were found at their home on

:06:03.:06:06.

Wood Hill earlier this month. Our reporter Eleanor Garnier was at

:06:06.:06:09.

Leicester Magistrates Court this morning and she joins us now.

:06:09.:06:12.

Eleanor, can you bring us up to date? Two men appeared in court this

:06:12.:06:17.

morning. A 19—year—old from Leicester and a 21—year—old who

:06:17.:06:23.

lives in Leeds. They both face four counts of murder. The hearings

:06:23.:06:27.

lasted just a couple of minutes each, and the men spoke only to

:06:27.:06:32.

confirm their names, addresses and that they understood the charges.

:06:32.:06:35.

They have both been remanded into custody and will appear at Leicester

:06:35.:06:39.

Crown Court on Wednesday for a bail hearing. Take us back to when this

:06:39.:06:46.

house fire happened. It was in the early hours of Friday the 13th of

:06:46.:06:54.

September. For members of the family all died after flames engulfed their

:06:54.:06:59.

home. Shehnila Taufiq, her 19—year—old daughter and her two

:06:59.:07:09.

sons, they all died. Today's court appearances are in addition to some

:07:09.:07:18.

earlier charges. Four people, to our both 19, as well as a 16—year—old

:07:18.:07:24.

who cannot be named for legal reasons. They all appeared at the

:07:24.:07:28.

magistrates on Saturday. They each face four counts of murder. Another

:07:28.:07:32.

man, Kemo Porter, who's 18 and facing the same charges, was

:07:32.:07:34.

remanded into custody earlier this month. That is seven people now in

:07:34.:07:41.

total all accused of murdering four members of the same family. Thanks

:07:41.:07:47.

for that. You're watching East Midlands Today.

:07:47.:07:50.

One of the region's leading opponents of the proposed high speed

:07:50.:07:53.

rail link through the East Midlands has been invited for talks with the

:07:53.:07:57.

Prime Minister. The invitation to Andrew Bridgen, the North West

:07:57.:08:00.

Leicestershire MP, came on the day that the Conservative Party

:08:00.:08:02.

conference heard powerful arguments for HS2, despite concerns over

:08:02.:08:07.

escalating costs. This report from Manchester is by our Political

:08:07.:08:16.

Editor John Hess. The anti—HS2 elephant that greeted

:08:16.:08:18.

conservative activists for their conference was deflated today. Could

:08:18.:08:22.

it sense that the Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin have

:08:22.:08:27.

the political wind in his sales on backing HS2? In Manchester, I am

:08:27.:08:35.

proud to support HS2, just as I am proud to support it in cities like

:08:35.:08:40.

Sheffield, Leeds, Nottingham, Derby, Glasgow and Birmingham. All the

:08:40.:08:48.

great cities of this country. But outside the conference all, mixed

:08:48.:08:53.

views for the party's rank—and—file. I don't think it will benefit the

:08:53.:08:56.

expenditure. There are probably better ways of achieving the same

:08:56.:09:04.

aims. I think it is actually good, if it brings jobs, and it also gets

:09:04.:09:07.

investment outside London. I think that is a good thing. The North West

:09:07.:09:14.

Leicestershire Tory MP is shown the latest campaign video by anti—HS2

:09:14.:09:19.

campaigners. It may be rattling a few cages in Downing Street. It has

:09:19.:09:24.

already won him his first HS2 one—to—one with David Cameron. I am

:09:24.:09:29.

grateful to express to the Prime Minister migrate concerns, and I

:09:29.:09:33.

believe the concerns of the majority of people in the country that this

:09:33.:09:36.

whole project is spiralling out of control. Patrick McLoughlin the

:09:36.:09:42.

Chancellor remain upbeat about HS2. The reality is that the image of the

:09:42.:09:45.

white elephant is not going to go away soon.

:09:45.:09:50.

20 shotguns and a stun gun are among weapons handed in as part of a

:09:50.:09:55.

firearms amnesty in Leicestershire. It's been running for ten days. The

:09:55.:09:59.

haul so far also includes 11 pistols, a revolver and nearly 100

:09:59.:10:03.

bullets. Police say they started the county's first amnesty for a decade

:10:03.:10:06.

to remove unwanted and unlicensed firearms from the streets. It

:10:06.:10:12.

finishes on Sunday. The company which leases Mallory

:10:12.:10:15.

Park race track in Leicestershire has been put into administration.

:10:15.:10:20.

Mallory Park Motorsport Limited says it has suffered significant losses

:10:20.:10:23.

after it was forced to limit the use of the track to two days a week.

:10:23.:10:28.

This followed a breach of a noise order. Testing and racing has been

:10:28.:10:33.

cancelled this week. The administrator hopes racing can be

:10:33.:10:39.

enjoyed for years to come. Nearly £50,000 in legal fees has

:10:39.:10:42.

been spent by governors at a troubled Leicester primary school.

:10:42.:10:46.

The headteacher at Uplands Junior in Highfields was suspended by the city

:10:46.:10:50.

council earlier this month and the governors' powers were removed. The

:10:50.:10:54.

school's defended its spending between April and September, saying

:10:54.:10:58.

it was partially for staff matters. The council's investigating.

:10:58.:11:07.

Leicester's bid to become the next UK City of Culture was given a

:11:07.:11:11.

colourful send—off this morning. The final document was brought into the

:11:11.:11:14.

city on a vintage wagon accompanied by the Leicester rock band Kasabian.

:11:14.:11:18.

The bid will go to Manchester, to be considered along with entries from

:11:18.:11:21.

Dundee, Hull and Swansea Bay. Whilst the government is expected to make

:11:21.:11:24.

its decision in November there was only one winner in Leicester today.

:11:24.:11:33.

I think it is important for Leicester to move on as a city.

:11:33.:11:36.

Especially with the arts now, pushing them forward. It should be

:11:36.:11:40.

great for the city. Our kids live here now, our children, the king is

:11:40.:11:49.

buried here as well. Next tonight, it's on the market for

:11:49.:11:53.

more than a million pounds. But a big selling point is it will save

:11:53.:11:55.

you money. That's because a new property at

:11:55.:11:58.

Great Glen in Leicestershire is one of the country's first 'zero carbon'

:11:58.:12:02.

homes. In three years' time, the government

:12:02.:12:06.

wants all new homes to be zero carbon. So could the new home built

:12:06.:12:10.

by a father and son team be the way forward? Jo Healey went to find out.

:12:10.:12:21.

I have always wanted my Kevin Maguire to moment, and this is it.

:12:21.:12:27.

And this is the grand design, and what makes this place so important

:12:27.:12:31.

to you as it could mean no more fuel bills. That is because it has taken

:12:31.:12:36.

technologies that are already around and combined them. So what is so

:12:36.:12:44.

unique about the way this works? It is unique because we take the warm

:12:44.:12:48.

from the sun during the summer when it is abundantly available, and we

:12:48.:12:51.

push it into the ground, underneath the building, which is warmed, and

:12:51.:12:56.

we take it back in the winter to heat the house. So it is the storing

:12:56.:13:01.

of the energy from the sun that matters. Not that bills would

:13:01.:13:05.

probably bother you too much if you could afford this, but there is a

:13:05.:13:09.

lot of interest, and not just from buyers. For the next year, a team of

:13:09.:13:13.

experts will be keeping a close eye on its efficiency. It is a really

:13:13.:13:20.

exciting project. We want to see how the house is really performing in

:13:20.:13:24.

winter. And then to see how it can be rolled out across a much wider

:13:24.:13:27.

market, across the UK and maybe across Europe. How excited are you

:13:27.:13:35.

buy all this? We are thrilled. We are looking forward to building more

:13:35.:13:39.

houses like it. With no energy bills? The houses will be completely

:13:39.:13:47.

self—sufficient for energy. That's an incentive for those of us who may

:13:47.:13:51.

be afford —— able to afford a much smaller version.

:13:51.:13:56.

We like that. Nottingham's tram network could be

:13:56.:13:59.

extended with another new line and a link to the proposed new HS2 station

:13:59.:14:03.

on the edge of the City. Talks are being held about taking

:14:03.:14:07.

the tram out to the Eastwood area and to the high—speed hub at Toton

:14:07.:14:11.

towards Derby. The news came as a new landmark tram

:14:11.:14:15.

bridge was edged into place across one of Nottingham's busiest roads.

:14:15.:14:28.

Mike O'Sullivan reports. Moved by special transporters and

:14:28.:14:31.

lowered with incredible accuracy, this 1000 tonne tram Bridge has

:14:31.:14:34.

become a new landmark in Nottingham. On Saturday night, waste across the

:14:34.:14:42.

A52 dual carriageway. It was euphoria for the team that were

:14:42.:14:46.

here. Many hours of preparation over the last few days have culminated in

:14:46.:14:50.

a fantastic achievement for the team. The bridge is part of a £570

:14:50.:14:56.

million extension of the tram network, building two new lines out

:14:56.:15:01.

to Clifton and Chilwell with work due to finish next year. This bridge

:15:01.:15:06.

is hugely impressive, but the scale of ambition for the tram network

:15:06.:15:09.

does not end here. There is no talk of building a new line out to

:15:09.:15:17.

Kimberley. Looking at Toton makes sense as the HS2 project develops.

:15:17.:15:21.

We are having conversations, we have not got a definitive plan yet but

:15:21.:15:24.

conversation continues and we need to work out what is realistic,

:15:24.:15:28.

affordable and how we can achieve it. There will be a tram stop as the

:15:28.:15:36.

elevated line goes past the hospital. Secondary glazing has been

:15:36.:15:38.

put in place to stop the noise affecting patients. The next big

:15:38.:15:42.

project is a bridge at Clifton, heart of the bridge there collapsed

:15:42.:15:46.

earlier this month. The builders blame engineering design problems,

:15:46.:15:50.

but say that beams are being remanufactured and the job will be

:15:50.:15:57.

completed in November. One of ten bridges and supports being built for

:15:57.:16:03.

the tram extension. A lot of digging going on in

:16:03.:16:07.

Nottingham these days. Exciting stuff in sport. New manager, Colin?

:16:07.:16:15.

Indeed. In just the last hour, Derby County have officially appointed

:16:15.:16:17.

Steve McClaren as their new head coach. The former England,

:16:17.:16:21.

Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest boss replaces Nigel Clough. Our

:16:21.:16:26.

sports editor Natalie Jackson has been following the story and is life

:16:26.:16:30.

for us. It has been a remarkable 48 hours.

:16:30.:16:36.

Tonight, Steve McClaren is back in English management with his old club

:16:36.:16:40.

Derby County. He was all smiles as he arrived for talks at Mallory

:16:40.:16:47.

Park. —— Pride Park. It is great to come back. Hopefully things will

:16:47.:16:54.

work out. Banks very much. The former England boss has been caught

:16:54.:17:00.

at QPR since July. This is his third spell at Derby. He served as a

:17:00.:17:03.

player, then assistant manager in the 90s, helping the club to the

:17:04.:17:09.

Premier League. We have to be challenging for the play—offs.

:17:09.:17:13.

Challenging to get into the top two and the Premier League. He replaces

:17:13.:17:20.

Nigel Clough, who was sacked on Saturday just hours after defeat in

:17:20.:17:23.

the local derby with Nottingham Forest. We have got to assess what

:17:23.:17:29.

we have here. Excellent new players, a great style of football,

:17:29.:17:36.

Nigel has done a great job. We have to develop that and make that

:17:36.:17:40.

better. That is our job. We have two and a half years to do it. He posed

:17:40.:17:46.

for photographs with fans and said he was aware he would have to work

:17:46.:17:52.

within a budget. Ultimately you have to get the balance between the

:17:52.:17:54.

ambitions of what you want, what the owners want, and there is ambitions

:17:54.:18:00.

there. It has stabilised over the last three or four years and now

:18:00.:18:03.

they want to push on. We are all in it together, we cannot wait to get

:18:03.:18:10.

started. Steve McClaren will meet the media is the new Derby manager

:18:10.:18:15.

at a press conference tomorrow. Natalie Jackson is at pride Park for

:18:15.:18:22.

us. What today it been. What a day and what a 48 hours. Nigel Clarke,

:18:22.:18:26.

sacked on Saturday night. Steve McClaren appointed as manager today.

:18:26.:18:33.

A move which has divided fans. After Saturday, there was a slight

:18:33.:18:40.

backlash. Some feeling that idle Clough has been harshly treated. He

:18:40.:18:44.

has had to have the wage bill. Others felt that it was time for a

:18:44.:18:51.

change. The club they want to get to the Premier League, they want to be

:18:51.:18:55.

in the top six. They felt that they needed to bring in a new man. Steve

:18:55.:19:01.

McClaren is that man. He will be in the stands here for the game with

:19:02.:19:05.

Ipswich tomorrow. He will see his new team. Darren wassail will be the

:19:05.:19:16.

caretaker coach. He will get a first look at his new side. Eric Steele,

:19:16.:19:28.

also a former reader there —— former Derby player, will also be part of

:19:28.:19:33.

the stuff. This story will rumble on. We will have more on our late

:19:33.:19:37.

bulletin. Thank you very much indeed. Derby

:19:37.:19:44.

were involved in a huge game on Saturday. The Nottingham Forest fans

:19:44.:19:49.

certainly won't forget as it was the Reds who came out on top in the East

:19:49.:19:52.

Midlands Derby. Kirsty Edwards looks back.

:19:52.:19:59.

This is not just a game. It is the only one that matters doing the

:19:59.:20:03.

season, the biggest game. I would love Derby to win. For these fans,

:20:03.:20:12.

this is the big one. We were so nervous, I couldn't sleep last

:20:12.:20:16.

night. Whoever wins will be walking a bit taller. Bragging rights and

:20:16.:20:23.

the Brian Clough Trophy at stake. Pressure high on both sides. It was

:20:23.:20:28.

forested started brighter, I great chance. Derby got themselves into it

:20:28.:20:35.

and had their chances as well. But the decisive moment came just before

:20:36.:20:42.

half—time. The Forest defender left in acres of space to head in his

:20:42.:20:48.

first for the club. There is no feeling like it. I felt like I was

:20:48.:20:54.

going to implode in euphoria. Forest's manager says his club could

:20:54.:20:58.

have won by more. Missed chances like this he was talking about. Then

:20:58.:21:05.

of course, there was the penalty. Up stepped Henderson, only to be

:21:06.:21:11.

thwarted by the impressive league rant. It led to an intense final few

:21:11.:21:22.

minutes. —— Lee Grant. I am delighted for our fans. We have

:21:23.:21:26.

enjoyed the bragging rights. That is what this game is all about.

:21:26.:21:31.

Regardless of the drama at Forest and Derby, it's Leicester City who

:21:31.:21:34.

remain top dogs in the East Midlands. A 2—1 win over Barnsley

:21:34.:21:38.

saw to that. They fully deserved it as well. Well

:21:38.:21:43.

on top, even at the point where Barnsley had a goal disallowed for

:21:43.:21:47.

offside. After the break the goals came for Leicester. The deadlock was

:21:47.:21:52.

broken in 50 minutes. It was his first goal of the season. This

:21:52.:22:05.

penalty meant the job was done, despite Barnsley producing a

:22:05.:22:10.

consolation goal. Look at some of the Leicester chances generated by

:22:10.:22:15.

their enormous share of possession. Definitely a team in form.

Elsewhere Notts County suffered their seventh defeat of the season

:22:18.:22:21.

in League One. They got off to a good start at Carlisle with

:22:22.:22:24.

midfielder Callum McGregor giving them the lead. But they wasted a

:22:24.:22:28.

host of chances and were punished by two goals from the homeside. Notts

:22:28.:22:31.

are now second from bottom of the league.

:22:31.:22:34.

Mansfield Town are flying in League Two though and will have

:22:34.:22:37.

particularly enjoyed this win over big rivals Chesterfield. Calvin

:22:37.:22:40.

Andrew scored his first goal for the club. They're now unbeaten in their

:22:40.:22:43.

last eight matches and are third in the table. In rugby, Leicester

:22:43.:22:50.

Tigers took full advantage of what must have been Exeter's worst 40

:22:50.:22:56.

minutes for years to take a lead that they would never surrender. Not

:22:56.:23:00.

a bad warm up for the big home game with Saints on Saturday.

:23:00.:23:03.

Nottingham Panthers had a cracking weekend. League leaders Dundee

:23:03.:23:06.

slipped up last night and that meant Panthers' 3—2 win over Belfast was

:23:06.:23:10.

as crucial as it was dramatic. This is Belfast's late goal to make it

:23:10.:23:14.

2—2. But once the face—off is taken, the response from Panthers is

:23:14.:23:20.

unbelievably swift. They are pushed back for a while, but then

:23:20.:23:23.

Nottingham break at high speed and the end result is delivered with

:23:23.:23:29.

real and ash, as you will see. —— with real pan ash. 16 seconds of

:23:29.:23:33.

playing time from puck drop to game winner. You'll take that all day,

:23:33.:23:36.

every day. That is a very nice finish to the day.

:23:36.:23:41.

Indeed. It has certainly been very mild

:23:41.:23:46.

autumn, but Leicester charity is thinking ahead to the time when

:23:46.:23:51.

mercury plummets. It is asking people to donate winter coats to

:23:51.:23:53.

help the homeless and some of the county's most vulnerable families.

:23:53.:23:56.

Leicestershire Cares' Coat Drive will see warm clothing distributed

:23:56.:23:59.

via 14 different charities as Jonathan Cecil reports.

:23:59.:24:13.

Illness related to living in a cold home cost the NHS £1.6 billion a

:24:13.:24:19.

year. Thousands are dying every winter due to the cold. The charity

:24:19.:24:23.

Leicestershire Cares are urging people to donate winter coats to

:24:23.:24:26.

help the county's poorest and most vulnerable people of all ages. We

:24:26.:24:31.

need people to donate their courts because a court is the warmest thing

:24:31.:24:34.

you can have and it is really going to keep you snug over the winter. We

:24:34.:24:38.

are looking for people to donate coats, really we are looking for

:24:39.:24:43.

men's' courts, women's courts and children's courts. They hope to get

:24:43.:24:49.

2500, which will be distributed to 14 charities and community groups.

:24:49.:24:54.

We will have a lot of people coming into our sessions needing courts are

:24:54.:24:58.

clothes, and they can look pretty low actually, because they have got

:24:58.:25:01.

a lot of worries, they are wondering how they are going to afford things.

:25:01.:25:04.

It is nice at the end of the session, if you're able to give a

:25:04.:25:08.

court are clothes, and they go out smiling. One of the solutions, one

:25:08.:25:14.

of their needs, have been met. You can donate at either Tower Street in

:25:14.:25:18.

Leicester or St Mary's Road in market Harborough. There is a

:25:18.:25:22.

particular shortage in children's and small men's courts.

:25:22.:25:29.

As we were saying, it is very warm at the moment. Here is the weather.

:25:29.:25:36.

The weather has given September fine sendoff. Warm spells of sunshine

:25:36.:25:39.

around today. In the next few days we have a battle on our hands. In

:25:39.:25:43.

one corner we have high pressure that has been with us for a few

:25:43.:25:46.

days, in the other corner as swirling area of low pressure out in

:25:46.:25:51.

the Atlantic. The high pressure starts to wander off allowing these

:25:51.:25:54.

weather fronts to work their way in. But back to today, the cloud was

:25:54.:25:58.

with us first thing this morning, but it broke up very nicely

:25:58.:26:03.

particularly through eastern parts. Elsewhere, it did break up very

:26:03.:26:07.

nicely, we saw highs of 19 Celsius in Nottinghamshire. As we go into

:26:07.:26:11.

tonight, we will see prolonged, clear spells overnight. Cloud will

:26:11.:26:16.

start to creep injuring the early hours. It will be breezy, with

:26:16.:26:20.

overnight lows of 10 degrees in built—up areas. Item the

:26:20.:26:25.

countryside, they could dip down into single figures. Tomorrow will

:26:25.:26:29.

be similar, mainly dry, some cloud around, but decent spells of

:26:29.:26:32.

sunshine as well. Some places will wake up with brightness, clear skies

:26:32.:26:37.

overnight. It will be breezy and the cloud will come and go throughout

:26:37.:26:41.

the day. Some good sunshine and highs tomorrow of around 17 degrees.

:26:41.:26:45.

Things start to change as weather fronts start working during the

:26:45.:26:50.

middle of the week. It will be breezy at times, we will see some

:26:50.:26:54.

rain, but temperatures won't do too badly at all. The picture on

:26:54.:26:58.

Wednesday, the first weather front starting to creep into the East

:26:58.:27:01.

Midlands. It will have lost its momentum as it reaches us, becoming

:27:01.:27:05.

more patchy. But on Thursday we could see something a little

:27:05.:27:08.

heavier, heavy pulses of rain for a time. Ring started quite and don't
