This is East Midlands Today with Anne Davies and Maurice Flynn.

:00:04.:00:08.

Tonight, could historic phone records help find Madeleine McCann?

:00:08.:00:17.

Six years after she disappeared, investigators examine thousands of

:00:17.:00:20.

mobile phone records from the location at the time. Detectives

:00:20.:00:24.

clearly believe that this could hold the key to solving the case. Those

:00:24.:00:29.

charged with murdering a football coach and four members of the same

:00:29.:00:33.

family in Leicester appear in court.

:00:33.:00:35.

Plus months after floods forced them from their homes, the pensioners who

:00:35.:00:40.

feel they are the forgotten victims. Some people have gone into homes and

:00:40.:00:44.

some with relatives but we have had bungalows that have been trying out

:00:44.:00:47.

for about five weeks and nothing has been done to them. And the everyday

:00:47.:00:52.

arguido that could give our Olympic swimmers an extra edge. —— the

:00:52.:00:58.

everyday moss. They will not have the fatigue as quickly that they get

:00:59.:01:00.

even though they are elite swimmers. Good evening and welcome to Friday's

:01:00.:01:12.

programme. First tonight, detectives from Scotland Yard believe that

:01:12.:01:15.

analysing phone records may hold the key to finding out what happened to

:01:15.:01:20.

Madeleine McCann. Investigators looking for the youngster from

:01:20.:01:23.

Rothley in Leicestershire say their enquiries are "gathering momentum"

:01:23.:01:26.

and that they're now looking at 41 so—called persons of interest. There

:01:26.:01:33.

will also be an appeal on the BBC's Crimewatch programme later this

:01:33.:01:36.

month that promises "fresh and substantive" new information.

:01:36.:01:47.

Her face has rarely been out of the headlines but what happens to

:01:47.:01:50.

Madeleine McCann remains unsold. It is appearance in the Portuguese

:01:50.:01:55.

resort of Praia da Luz in 2007 sparked worldwide interest that

:01:55.:01:59.

despite a tireless campaign led by her parents, Kate and Gerry, six

:01:59.:02:03.

years on there is still no answer. Tonight, fresh hope from Scotland

:02:03.:02:08.

Yard. A briefing to select a journalist revealed that they will

:02:09.:02:12.

be analysing thousands of mobile phone records belonging to people

:02:12.:02:17.

thought to be in the same resort the night she disappeared. Detectives

:02:17.:02:20.

clearly believe that this could hold the key to solving the case. They

:02:20.:02:25.

believe that there is a vast amount of material wished must be analysed

:02:25.:02:28.

and will give them a complete picture as to who was in the area at

:02:28.:02:41.

the time —— which must be analysed. Kate and Gerry describe this as a

:02:41.:02:45.

huge step forward, the case had been dropped by the Portuguese

:02:45.:02:48.

authorities back in 2008. Then there were claims in a book by a former

:02:49.:02:53.

police chief that mother Lynne was dead and her parents had lied. The

:02:53.:02:58.

McCanns denied it and are seeking libel damages. Later this month, the

:02:58.:03:04.

family will feature alongside detectives in the BBC's Crimewatch

:03:04.:03:09.

programme which promises fresh and substantive new information.

:03:09.:03:11.

Together with the results of the phone records, it should offer new

:03:11.:03:15.

hope for the Leicestershire parents still determined to find their

:03:15.:03:16.

missing daughter. So, detectives believe that careful

:03:16.:03:22.

examination of mobile phone records could unlock the mystery of

:03:22.:03:24.

Madeleine's disappearance. But how exactly will this help them? We're

:03:24.:03:28.

joined now by a former police chief superintendent and now senior

:03:28.:03:30.

lecturer in criminology at the University of Derby, Nick Howe. Good

:03:30.:03:41.

evening. Thanks for joining us. First, how significant is this news

:03:41.:03:47.

today? I think it is very significant but we should not

:03:47.:03:51.

underestimate the job at the police will still have to do. What I would

:03:51.:03:55.

say is that it is disappointing that we are six years on and this

:03:55.:03:58.

particular aspect of the investigation has not been conducted

:03:58.:04:02.

deviously, I am surprised. You mentioned the six years —— conducted

:04:02.:04:10.

previously. Will this have been affected by the time—lapse? People

:04:10.:04:15.

get rid of phones on a fairly frequent basis so it adds a level of

:04:15.:04:22.

complexity that will be detrimental to the investigation but I am still

:04:22.:04:26.

confident that it will now be thorough. It is fairly unhelpful

:04:26.:04:30.

that this was not done six years ago. Yes, I am surprised by that.

:04:30.:04:37.

Only the Portuguese police can answer for why they did or did not

:04:37.:04:40.

do what they did. They captured some data but from what we are hearing

:04:40.:04:44.

from the media and announcements from the Metropolitan Police, this

:04:44.:04:47.

will now be a full—scale thorough investigation involving over 30

:04:47.:04:52.

countries where the data and phone details will be examined thoroughly

:04:52.:04:57.

which has to be excellent news for the investigation. It is a vast

:04:57.:05:00.

amount of information, do you have any information about how long this

:05:00.:05:04.

will take to get through? I suspect it will take a long time and will

:05:04.:05:10.

also cost a lot of money. Phone providers do not provide data free

:05:10.:05:14.

of charge generally and the bureaucracy in dealing with 30

:05:14.:05:17.

countries against the backdrop of how long data has been kept for it

:05:17.:05:21.

would compete matters for the investigators. Do you think this

:05:21.:05:26.

could hold the key to finding out what happened to Madeleine? Had this

:05:26.:05:33.

been a British enquiry occurring in the UK, I have to say that this

:05:33.:05:38.

would have been a major line of enquiry and it is a tried and tested

:05:38.:05:41.

method of certainly adding more information for investigators to

:05:41.:05:45.

either substantiate or negate who was present at the scene and follow

:05:45.:05:51.

lines of enquiry like these suspected people. We will keep our

:05:51.:05:54.

fingers crossed. Thanks for speaking to us.

:05:54.:05:56.

Next tonight, eight of the nine people accused of five murders in

:05:56.:05:59.

two separate incidents in Leicester have all appeared in court. Two are

:05:59.:06:02.

accused of killing the football coach Antoin Akpom. The other seven

:06:02.:06:06.

are accused of the deaths of four members of the same family who died

:06:06.:06:10.

in a house fire. Our chief news reporter Quentin Rayner has been in

:06:10.:06:15.

court. The brief hearing is at Leicester

:06:15.:06:19.

Crown Court set out a timetable for a trial date. The parents of Antoin

:06:19.:06:24.

Akpom attended. First to appear was 19—year—old Hussein Hussein, a video

:06:24.:06:30.

link with another 19—year—old Abdul Hakim failed so he did not appear

:06:30.:06:34.

during this hearing. Both are accused of the murder of the

:06:34.:06:37.

20—year—old football coach Antoin Akpom on the 12th of September who

:06:37.:06:40.

died from a single stab wound. They were both remanded into custody. The

:06:40.:06:46.

doc was then filled with six men and one youth charged with four counts

:06:46.:06:51.

of murder. They are all aged between 16—24. Shawn Carter, Jackson

:06:52.:06:56.

Powell, Nathaniel Mullings, a youth who cannot be named because of his

:06:56.:07:01.

age, Eireann web, Hakim Jeffers and chemo Porter were all remanded into

:07:02.:07:05.

custody. There was no application for bail. They are all accuse of the

:07:05.:07:10.

V murder of four members of the same family. Three teenage children and

:07:10.:07:15.

the mother died in a house fire at their home in the Wood Hill area of

:07:15.:07:21.

Leicester. Police working on the presumption of both cases which are

:07:21.:07:26.

linked. We were told that the trial will be heard in front of a High

:07:26.:07:29.

Court judge and is expected to last at least eight weeks. It should be

:07:29.:07:35.

dealt with by March next year. Plenty still to come on the

:07:35.:07:38.

programme tonight, including: can you guess what's driving these

:07:38.:07:39.

regulars at one pub so crazy? Pensioners who were forced out of

:07:39.:07:57.

their homes by severe floods this summer, say they feel like the

:07:57.:08:03.

forgotten victims of the deluge. Back in July, three inches of rain

:08:03.:08:07.

fell in just a few hours at Southwell in Nottinghamshire. Three

:08:07.:08:10.

months on, and the repair work is yet to start.

:08:10.:08:18.

With an overnight forecast of heavy rain again, on this road in

:08:18.:08:24.

Southwell, the sandbags were out in case and not surprisingly. In July

:08:24.:08:28.

after heavy rain, the dyke running through the town rose from a trickle

:08:28.:08:35.

to a torrent. We walked into the kitchen and we noticed there was

:08:35.:08:38.

water coming through the door. Walk further into the hall and it was

:08:38.:08:42.

coming through the front door like a river. This family are one of only

:08:42.:08:46.

four households out of 17 still in situ. They are living on concrete

:08:46.:08:52.

floors with the constant noise of the humidifiers. Across the road,

:08:52.:08:59.

Des is now living temporarily in this flat. He managed to salvage his

:08:59.:09:05.

medals from the Navy from the flood but he's not sure when he will get

:09:05.:09:11.

back to his bungalow. I cannot see people going back as yet. Not for a

:09:11.:09:16.

long time. We have been working in the properties since the day after

:09:16.:09:20.

the floods. So we started work drying out the floods immediately

:09:20.:09:25.

afterwards. We will start work on the site on the 14th of October and

:09:26.:09:29.

we are doing everything we can to make sure people can return. But

:09:29.:09:32.

people still believe that they are not going fast enough. We were given

:09:33.:09:39.

a date a fortnight away roughly and nothing has been done. And now we

:09:39.:09:44.

are getting to the winter. We feel like we were left to it and this is

:09:44.:09:50.

the son who have come to this opinion, elderly people down here

:09:50.:09:54.

that we are not being looked after. We have got in touch with tenants on

:09:54.:09:58.

a day to day basis and spent most of the first week on site. We have

:09:58.:10:02.

absolutely maintained really high levels of contact with tenants, kept

:10:02.:10:05.

them informed of what we are doing and we will continue to do so until

:10:05.:10:10.

they get back in. It is hoped the work will finish for the residents

:10:10.:10:14.

to be back in time for Christmas. A controversial free school, shut by

:10:14.:10:18.

Ofsted on the first day of its inspection, says it will reopen on

:10:18.:10:22.

Monday. The Muslim Al—Madinah School in Derby was shut for health and

:10:22.:10:27.

safety reasons on Tuesday. The school says these issues have now

:10:27.:10:30.

been addressed. A football fan who ran onto the

:10:30.:10:34.

pitch and pushed former Derby County boss Nigel Clough has been banned

:10:34.:10:37.

from football matches for three years. 28—year—old Kaleb Morley from

:10:37.:10:40.

Surrey can be seen here running past stunned players shortly after the

:10:40.:10:43.

attack during last month's game between Derby and Millwall. Today he

:10:43.:10:49.

admitted "encroaching on the field of play". He told Bromley

:10:49.:10:56.

magistrates he'd been frustrated Millwall were losing.

:10:56.:11:01.

It's a name that has legendary status in the African—Caribbean

:11:01.:11:03.

community. Marcus Garvey, an influential human rights activist,

:11:03.:11:06.

who died back in 1940. Today his son visited the Nottingham centre named

:11:06.:11:11.

after his father. Dr Julius Garvey arrived from his home in New York to

:11:11.:11:15.

meet members of the community and attend a civic reception. He's

:11:15.:11:18.

touring the UK to talk about the continuing impact of his father's

:11:18.:11:19.

legacy. Statesman—like and with a touch of

:11:19.:11:34.

celebrity status, Dr Julius Garvey arrived in the Nottingham centre

:11:34.:11:39.

named after his father. Marcus Garvey was an activist who

:11:39.:11:42.

influenced the civil rights movement. It is wonderful, I did not

:11:42.:11:50.

know the centre was here and I had never seen it and I can see what it

:11:50.:11:55.

is doing in terms of supporting seniors. It provides daycare for

:11:55.:12:00.

senior members of the African Caribbean community. To shake his

:12:00.:12:08.

son's hand, it is marvellous. I am proud to know I have met his son and

:12:08.:12:15.

to know he is such a humble person. # Marcus Garvey come to town.

:12:15.:12:22.

He was born in Jamaica and travelled in Central and South America, he

:12:22.:12:26.

formed an association to advance the cause of black people urging them to

:12:26.:12:29.

take pride in their African roots. Marcus Garvey moved to New York in

:12:29.:12:37.

1916 where his organisation grew. He died in London in 1940 and, 24 years

:12:37.:12:44.

later, his body was returned to Jamaica where he was declared the

:12:44.:12:47.

country's first national hero. APPLAUSE.

:12:47.:12:50.

Today his son, himself a heart surgeon in New York, was given a

:12:50.:12:58.

civic reception by the lord mayor of Nottingham ahead of other community

:12:58.:13:01.

events. He is an historical figure that we all read about, the work he

:13:01.:13:05.

has done for black people over the years and to see his son carrying on

:13:05.:13:11.

the same work, it is really important. He is seen as a vital

:13:11.:13:15.

living link to his father's legacy. The promotion of human rights. You

:13:15.:13:21.

jumped up there, hello Daphne. What a great occasion.

:13:21.:13:31.

Ex—soldiers are setting up a recycling service to fund a

:13:31.:13:33.

cash—strapped veterans' charity. Forces For Their Future works with

:13:33.:13:36.

former squaddies who are struggling to live on Civvy Street in

:13:36.:13:38.

Nottingham. Turning rubbish into hard cash, this

:13:38.:13:51.

is how a veteran's charity is dealing with a funding crisis. They

:13:51.:13:55.

are raising money by collecting packaging from shops and then

:13:55.:13:58.

selling it off to a recycling centre. But this is also a wave of

:13:58.:14:03.

the men they are supported to make a new start. Unfortunately when they

:14:03.:14:07.

come out of the army, their door is slammed and then the connection with

:14:07.:14:12.

the forces disappears. It gets them communicating and also raises money

:14:12.:14:15.

for the charity which enables us to carry on will stop Simon is one of

:14:15.:14:21.

over 100 veterans turning to the charity. He needed help more than 30

:14:22.:14:28.

years after leaving the army. I was unemployed and I could not pay the

:14:28.:14:32.

mortgage. I did lose my health, it has made a difference to me. I have

:14:32.:14:37.

been able to make new friends, otherwise I would have been lonely

:14:37.:14:46.

and isolated and not knowing where to turn. They are not just recycling

:14:46.:14:51.

rubbish here, they are recycling military careers and helping former

:14:51.:14:54.

squaddies realise they are not on the scrapheap.

:14:54.:14:58.

Absolutely not. Take a look at this. No, it's not

:14:58.:15:06.

debris from a bit of Maurice's DIY, crispbread or cereal. It is in fact

:15:06.:15:13.

dried moss. One of the 300 varieties of sphagnum moss to be precise. I'm

:15:13.:15:17.

not greenfingered for nothing, and it's grown in New Zealand. I think

:15:18.:15:26.

it grows in America. Many places. Closer to home, it's being used to

:15:26.:15:29.

reduce chorine levels in swimming pools. Swimmers are hoping trials of

:15:29.:15:33.

it in two of our pools will bring all manner of benefits.

:15:33.:15:42.

Some of Britain's elite swimmers training at Loughborough University.

:15:42.:15:45.

Also making a splash today, dried moss from New Zealand. Offering

:15:45.:15:51.

fresh hope that chlorine levels can be reduced here. It absorbs

:15:51.:15:55.

impurities from the water into the leaf and then they get trapped there

:15:55.:16:00.

so when you change the moss after a month, they are gone. And it puts

:16:00.:16:07.

material into the water, natural chemicals like a tea bag. See how

:16:07.:16:11.

they expand? They are then 20 times their size that we put in there. He

:16:11.:16:18.

is a retired vascular surgeon from America but his idea of improving

:16:18.:16:22.

water for swimmers comes from yesterday's men. Nearly 100 years

:16:22.:16:27.

ago, moss was used to treat war wounds. They found out that in World

:16:27.:16:31.

War I before antibiotics, that if they made a poultice out of this and

:16:31.:16:35.

put it over those horrible trench wounds, that the soldiers survived

:16:35.:16:39.

in higher numbers. Swimming group say they are interested to see how

:16:40.:16:47.

the trial goes. You can smell that there is a pool in the building at

:16:47.:16:50.

the moment and we hope that the chlorine is reduced for that reason.

:16:50.:16:55.

They are also trying it in the hometown of Rebecca Adlington. The

:16:55.:17:00.

swimmers' hopes RA is that chlorine levels can be reduced. It ruins your

:17:00.:17:06.

ear —— the swimmers' hopes are that chlorine levels can be reduced. Are

:17:07.:17:11.

used to get sore eyes from the chlorine. The air quality is very

:17:11.:17:19.

irritating with the chlorine. It is grown thousands of miles away. The

:17:19.:17:23.

results of the first European commercial trials are being eagerly

:17:23.:17:24.

awaited over there. I only knew of it being used in

:17:24.:17:37.

hanging baskets. We seem to have had quite a lot of pure water ourselves

:17:37.:17:41.

today. We may have missed the heaviest of

:17:41.:17:44.

the rain overnight but the showers today have kept umbrellas busy. Find

:17:44.:17:48.

out if they are here to stay in your full forecast later on in the

:17:48.:17:49.

programme. It will be great for our swimmers.

:17:49.:18:04.

Coming up on the spot, or the football on the way. But rugby

:18:04.:18:06.

first. Leicester Tigers' director of rugby,

:18:06.:18:08.

Richard Cockerill, has committed himself to the club for the next

:18:08.:18:12.

five years. He's been at Welford Road as a player and coach since

:18:12.:18:15.

1992 and has led Tigers to three Premiership titles and a European

:18:15.:18:17.

runners—up spot. The last Premiership title was won

:18:17.:18:20.

against tomorrow's opponents Northampton. It was notable for a

:18:20.:18:25.

clash with the fourth official which has seen Cockerill get a lengthy

:18:25.:18:28.

ban. Tomorrow at a sold—out Welford Road, he still won't have any

:18:28.:18:34.

matchday involvement. But a long new contract.

:18:34.:18:36.

Derby County, who have been making all the football headlines. With

:18:36.:18:39.

Clough sacked and Steve McClaren back, it's time now to focus on the

:18:39.:18:43.

football. Angela caught up with new boss ahead of his first match in

:18:43.:18:45.

charge at Pride Park. What a week it has been for Steve

:18:45.:19:01.

McClaren, back on familiar territory, fiercely ambitious but

:19:01.:19:03.

admitting that it will take time. Let's not rush, otherwise you fall

:19:03.:19:16.

down. We have seen that in the past, that can happen. We don't want that

:19:16.:19:21.

to happen here so we are all impatient but we must be patient at

:19:21.:19:26.

this, respect and make sure that what we have, we assess and look at

:19:26.:19:30.

and come with us. Take them on board and then it will help. Tomorrow

:19:30.:19:35.

against Leeds is his first official game in charge but he has been down

:19:35.:19:40.

in the dugout already. The game on Tuesday, a real roller—coaster. I

:19:40.:19:44.

endured and then enjoyed Tuesday! And that is what a team does in

:19:44.:19:49.

football, I will probably do the same again against Leeds, a part of

:19:49.:19:54.

it will be endurance and parts of it will be enjoyment. It is about

:19:54.:20:03.

getting the results. Helping them is the Derby favourite in the boot

:20:03.:20:08.

room. We are all looking to go and step up and really make a success of

:20:08.:20:13.

it with the unbelievable support that this football club can get. We

:20:13.:20:16.

all hope to be smiling for many years to come. So now it is down to

:20:16.:20:22.

business, Steve McClaren is back and these players need to deliver.

:20:22.:20:28.

And we will be there. Nottingham Forest are off to

:20:28.:20:33.

Brighton for a 5:30pm kick off tomorrow with the deal for winger

:20:33.:20:36.

Bakary Sako apparently dead in the water, Wolves announcing talks were

:20:36.:20:39.

over. When I went to see Forest boss Billy Davies earlier today, he said

:20:39.:20:43.

changes were still likely at the club. But — even though performances

:20:43.:20:46.

haven't been perfect — he was pleased with the achievement so far.

:20:46.:20:51.

This is probably the most points I have taken in the six seasons I have

:20:51.:20:58.

been involved. Your teams are not renowned for being fast starters. I

:20:58.:21:01.

am absolutely delighted, the most points I have taken probably in 16

:21:01.:21:07.

games, I have taken less points than what I have at the moment. So I am

:21:07.:21:12.

delighted from that point of view. The cop is very much half full, not

:21:12.:21:19.

half empty. —— the cup. And we are very happy with what we have so far.

:21:20.:21:22.

The only thing holding Leicester City away from top spot in the

:21:22.:21:25.

Championship is goal difference. It's been an outstanding start, and

:21:25.:21:29.

a stable one. Not many changes to the Foxes team selection. That's

:21:29.:21:32.

meant only the most limited playing time for summer signing Dean

:21:32.:21:36.

Hammond. But, as I found out, he's willing to wait.

:21:36.:21:43.

Hammond is used to success. At Southampton, he had back—to—back

:21:43.:21:48.

emotions and a Johnstone's Paint Trophy to his name. At Leicester, he

:21:48.:21:52.

is biding his time. We have not changed for a while which is good.

:21:53.:21:58.

It becomes more difficult to keep the group happy at times because

:21:58.:22:02.

players want to play. All I can do is train hard, support the players.

:22:02.:22:08.

They are doing really well at the moment and they deserve to be in the

:22:08.:22:11.

team because we are winning games. All I can do is work hard and when

:22:11.:22:16.

my chances come, the ready. It is about winning games as a group. He

:22:16.:22:21.

has played a big part so far. As far as I am concerned and he will want

:22:21.:22:25.

to play a bigger part himself on the field. His leadership qualities have

:22:25.:22:29.

been recognised with captaincy. And his experience is enough to know a

:22:29.:22:36.

good squad when he sees it. There is real good quality here and good

:22:36.:22:39.

competition for places which is important because it is a long

:22:39.:22:42.

season. Team spirit is brilliant but there is real quality in the group

:22:42.:22:46.

as well. It is about being consistent and that is what we are

:22:46.:22:49.

at the moment. How do you keep winning now? Keep doing what we do

:22:50.:22:56.

and don't change. He says that even though no change means that he stays

:22:56.:23:00.

on the bench. For now. Also in action, Notts County are

:23:00.:23:03.

looking in a better place and are home to Crewe. Meanwhile Mansfield

:23:03.:23:06.

manager Paul Cox somehow missed out on the League Two Manager of the

:23:06.:23:10.

Month award. Still, he may not mind — it's notoriously cursed. The Stags

:23:10.:23:14.

will try to keep their great run going at home to Hartlepool.

:23:14.:23:16.

Elsewhere, Nottingham Rugby host Jersey and Notthingham Panthers are

:23:16.:23:19.

home to Braehead tomorrow night. Plus, all our good wishes go with

:23:19.:23:24.

Beckie Downie. Nottingham's star gymnast is in the final of the high

:23:24.:23:27.

bar at the World Championship tomorrow. It is funny you mention

:23:28.:23:41.

bars! What would drive you to the pub? A

:23:41.:23:45.

quiz, good food or perhaps a big football match? Well, at the back of

:23:45.:23:49.

one Nottingham pub is a small room where people scream, shout and enjoy

:23:49.:23:51.

the thrill of the race. The local — a place to catch up with

:23:51.:24:05.

friends. Can I have a pint of beer please, a packet of peanuts and the

:24:05.:24:09.

star ski and Hutch car? Or have a meal. Can I change my Aston Martin

:24:09.:24:15.

for a Ferrari? What about to raise? In a small room at the rear of the

:24:15.:24:18.

Dragon in the centre of Nottingham, they hold Scalextric race nights.

:24:18.:24:28.

With 138 feet of track and Nottingham horizons to race past, up

:24:28.:24:32.

to six drivers can compete and it is all timed on digital scoreboards.

:24:32.:24:36.

There is that competitive spirit in most people and also a sense of

:24:36.:24:43.

absurdity of racing toy cars around a plastic track but it is a fun

:24:43.:24:49.

thing to do. It is competition that anybody can have a go at. You are

:24:49.:24:54.

transported back to being your ten—year—old self. This pub is

:24:54.:24:59.

bucking the trend in terms of dwindling customer numbers as race

:24:59.:25:02.

nights draw in the crowds. Anything from six people of a 30th birthday

:25:02.:25:12.

party to 30 or 40 people here for a stag do. They in, behave but the

:25:12.:25:16.

amount of people that you don't think you can fit in that one small

:25:16.:25:22.

room... It has been brilliant. It is about having a laugh and you could

:25:22.:25:24.

win a medal with your pint. It is nice to have real cars rather

:25:24.:25:38.

than being on a PlayStation. And you can have more sociability as well.

:25:38.:25:42.

But going on this weekend. How's the weather looking?

:25:42.:25:46.

Not too bad but we certainly missed most of the heavy rain overnight.

:25:46.:25:55.

But we have had 20 showers today. You can see the rain tracking its

:25:55.:25:59.

way north on the radar picture but it left behind a legacy of showers.

:25:59.:26:04.

Also quite easy as well as the lively showers but despite all of

:26:04.:26:07.

that, temperatures have done very well feeling quite humid and we have

:26:07.:26:12.

seen highs of 20 Celsius in Nottinghamshire, widely 19 Celsius

:26:12.:26:16.

across the region. That is not bad when you consider that 16 Celsius is

:26:16.:26:21.

average for this time of year. Still a few showers dotted around and they

:26:21.:26:24.

will gradually start to fizzle out through the evening. Most races

:26:24.:26:28.

remaining drive perhaps with some spots of rain throughout the Peak

:26:28.:26:33.

District. Temperatures should not drop to file with lows of 13 Celsius

:26:33.:26:38.

in towns and cities, possibly into single figures in the countryside.

:26:38.:26:44.

We may see some patches of mist and fog there in the morning but on the

:26:44.:26:46.

whole, the weekend is not looking bad, it is looking drier and we will

:26:46.:26:51.

see some good spells of sunshine. The reason is this ridge of high

:26:51.:26:55.

pressure which works its way in and helps to settle things down. Any

:26:55.:26:59.

mist and fog first thing tomorrow will clear away quickly. Some spits

:26:59.:27:08.

and spots of rain and then skies will brighten. The winds will be

:27:08.:27:11.

much lighter and temperature still doing well with temperatures up to

:27:11.:27:18.

17 Celsius. It does turn cooler into tomorrow night and once again,

:27:18.:27:22.

patches of mist and fog forming as we head into Sunday morning but by

:27:22.:27:25.

the afternoon, we should start to see some good spells of sunshine and

:27:25.:27:31.

temperature still doing really well, highs on Saturday and Sunday of 18

:27:31.:27:33.

Celsius so not bad for October. The summer seems to be going on and

:27:33.:27:43.

on. It is looking nice and orange at the moment. We will have more per

:27:43.:27:45.

you tonight. Goodbye.

:27:45.:27:46.
