:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:07.

Tonight, a top judge condemns a council for trying to evict a

:00:08.:00:16.

grieving widow and her children. After Claire's husband took his own

:00:17.:00:20.

life, she was told she couldn't stay in the home they shared. I am so

:00:21.:00:28.

overwhelmed that we have won it, and this has really been worth it. I'm

:00:29.:00:33.

getting emotional. Also tonight, how a wrangle over a locked door delayed

:00:34.:00:40.

vital time for this stroke victim. He thought the other side was open.

:00:41.:00:48.

They were unable to get in. Plus the town were easing traffic congestion

:00:49.:00:51.

with a new relief road comes with a catch. 4000 new homes. And the

:00:52.:00:58.

winner is... ? We reveal which of these is our Unsung Hero 2013.

:00:59.:01:11.

Good evening. Welcome to the programme. First tonight, a widow

:01:12.:01:17.

says she feels overwhelmed after a judge ruled that her local council

:01:18.:01:21.

was wrong to try to evict her and her two children from their family

:01:22.:01:25.

home. Leicester City Council was trying to evict Clare Shearer

:01:26.:01:28.

because the tenancy agreement was in the name of her late husband, who'd

:01:29.:01:34.

taken his own life. Clare says the stress has meant she hasn't been

:01:35.:01:37.

able to grieve for him, and any plans for the future have been put

:01:38.:01:46.

on hold. Helen Astle reports. Claire and James were married for

:01:47.:01:50.

six years before he committed suicide in 2011. Their council

:01:51.:01:55.

tenancy was in his name after James had inherited it from his mother.

:01:56.:02:00.

James died, and Clare Shearer says she received a letter asking her and

:02:01.:02:07.

her children to leave. I was mortified. I was having to deal with

:02:08.:02:12.

the death of my husband and this K only two weeks after. Over the

:02:13.:02:16.

following two years, Clare has battled with the council to be

:02:17.:02:22.

allowed to stay in the home. She's had no strict right to stay there.

:02:23.:02:29.

It has left us not been able to plan anything, it has been hard because

:02:30.:02:36.

at the back of my mind is the fact we have to leave. The court ruled

:02:37.:02:40.

today that Leicester City Council had been wrong to try to evict Clare

:02:41.:02:45.

and the girls from their home. I am so overwhelmed we have won it. And

:02:46.:02:50.

this three years fight has really been worth it. I don't want to get

:02:51.:02:57.

emotional... But it is such a relief to know that... You know, we are

:02:58.:03:03.

going to get to keep all these memories. I think I need an apology

:03:04.:03:08.

from the council. It is not a decision to be made lightly. They

:03:09.:03:12.

should have considered and looked at it a lot more and not just gone on

:03:13.:03:18.

there all is and regulations. In a statement, Leicester City Council

:03:19.:03:21.

say that tenancies on council properties can only be passed to

:03:22.:03:25.

another family member in limited circumstances. They go on to say

:03:26.:03:28.

that in light of this judgement, it could be that we need to review our

:03:29.:03:34.

housing allocations policy in light of this case. We are considering our

:03:35.:03:38.

position and we will look into it further.

:03:39.:03:41.

Governors of the troubled Al`Madinah free school in Derby have today been

:03:42.:03:44.

meeting education officials to discuss its future. There's mounting

:03:45.:03:49.

speculation that the trust which runs it could be removed. It's

:03:50.:03:53.

thought the school may then be placed in the hands of an academy.

:03:54.:03:57.

Our reporter Simon Hare is in our Derby studio now. What's the latest?

:03:58.:04:08.

Well, the Department for Education has told us wants to make an

:04:09.:04:11.

announcement on the future of the Al`Madinah school, quickly as

:04:12.:04:16.

possible. As you say, officials have been meeting governors from the

:04:17.:04:20.

school today. No word yet on the outcome of that meeting but there

:04:21.:04:24.

was speculation at the weekend that the trustees who run the school were

:04:25.:04:27.

told they would have to go all the school would lose its funding. It

:04:28.:04:32.

would then have to close. Any formal announcement could be made as soon

:04:33.:04:35.

as tomorrow but the Department for edge of says it will release any

:04:36.:04:40.

details and relevant documents to show what it has taken the decision.

:04:41.:04:45.

`` but the Department for Education. So, what could happen? Well, closing

:04:46.:04:51.

the school would be politically embarrassing for the government.

:04:52.:04:54.

Free schools are a flagship education policy for the government.

:04:55.:04:58.

Doing nothing is not an option. So if the trust was removed, that could

:04:59.:05:02.

see the running of the school passed to an academy or a group of

:05:03.:05:08.

academies. They are established education providers operating

:05:09.:05:11.

outside local authority control. One name we are hearing quite a lot

:05:12.:05:19.

during this situation is that of Barry dei who runs a foundation

:05:20.:05:23.

trust in Nottingham who has got 22 academies across the country, mostly

:05:24.:05:28.

in the East Midlands. He's going to be a favourite of Michael Gove, the

:05:29.:05:33.

Education Secretary. And when I spoke to Greenwood Dale earlier,

:05:34.:05:38.

they had declined to comment. But we will learn the future of the

:05:39.:05:40.

Al`Madinah school in the next couple of hours.

:05:41.:05:43.

Still to come, why Rebecca`Anne's a revelation. Deaf since the age of

:05:44.:05:46.

18, Rebecca's used her memory of music to write songs, and to

:05:47.:05:49.

challenge a few stereotypes about deaf people.

:05:50.:06:05.

A distressed daughter says she's furious that her father, who'd had a

:06:06.:06:10.

stroke, had to wait 26 minutes behind a locked door at a care home

:06:11.:06:14.

before staff opened it to let in paramedics. 89`year`old Leslie

:06:15.:06:19.

Coombs from Nottingham died of a heart attack nine days later. Those

:06:20.:06:25.

caring for Mr Coombs say they did follow correct procedures. But his

:06:26.:06:29.

daughter, Glenis Riley, says she's now considering legal action. James

:06:30.:06:35.

Roberson reports. Glenis Riley and her husband are

:06:36.:06:42.

deeply upset about what happened to Glenys's father last month. Leslie

:06:43.:06:47.

Coombs was an RAF war veteran and a much loved grandfather who had gone

:06:48.:06:51.

to live that sheltered housing complex in Nottingham. One Saturday

:06:52.:06:55.

morning last month, the 89`year`old suffered a stroke when paramedics

:06:56.:07:00.

arrived, no staff on duty were allowed to use codes to access the

:07:01.:07:03.

safe with emergency room keys. That's all it took. These numbers to

:07:04.:07:09.

be given out so they could get this master key up to get into his flat.

:07:10.:07:14.

And they just refused. It is their policy. The home is run by Places

:07:15.:07:23.

For People, but it is run by somebody else on the weekends. It

:07:24.:07:30.

took 26 minutes of anyone to get in. The ambulance crew could see him

:07:31.:07:37.

through the letterbox. He was asking when they were going to come in and

:07:38.:07:40.

help. Nottingham city homes say they have recorded this incident and they

:07:41.:07:42.

say... The faster you act, the more of a

:07:43.:08:03.

person you say. The government's an advertising campaign stresses fast

:08:04.:08:06.

action is needed if a patient is to survive a stroke and recover. This

:08:07.:08:11.

is what I have to live with right now. Would it have made a difference

:08:12.:08:15.

if they had got in straight away? Leslie Coombs died nine days later

:08:16.:08:22.

of a heart attack. Nottingham home says the safety of their customers

:08:23.:08:26.

is of utmost importance. "We are reviewing the current process with

:08:27.:08:32.

the emergency services and changes will be made as a priority." Glenis

:08:33.:08:37.

Riley is considering taking legal action.

:08:38.:08:41.

The company running Mallory Park race track in Leicestershire has

:08:42.:08:45.

been put into liquidation. The decision was made today after a

:08:46.:08:48.

meeting with creditors, who'd put the firm into administration in

:08:49.:08:52.

September. It follows a row over the number of race days allowed at the

:08:53.:08:56.

circuit. Creditors say the site will go back into the hands of the

:08:57.:09:00.

landlord who will decide on any further racing at the track.

:09:01.:09:04.

Three men have appeared at Nottingham Crown Court today charged

:09:05.:09:07.

with the murder of a man from Arnold. The body of Andrew Dosiuk

:09:08.:09:11.

was found at his home in Laneham Avenue last Monday. The 33`year`old

:09:12.:09:16.

died from a gunshot wound. Detectives charged the trio with

:09:17.:09:19.

murder on Friday. They've been remanded in custody.

:09:20.:09:23.

For years, it's been a frustrating bottle`neck for motorists on one of

:09:24.:09:26.

the region's busy east`west trunk roads. Now a new multi`million pound

:09:27.:09:33.

relief road is to be built just south of Grantham, linking the A1

:09:34.:09:36.

and the A52 heading to the East Coast. But for some residents,

:09:37.:09:42.

there's a catch. It's tied up with a planned development of 4,000 new

:09:43.:09:45.

homes. From Grantham, here's our Political Editor John Hess.

:09:46.:09:54.

This is what happens when a high street is also on one of the main

:09:55.:09:58.

routes from the Midlands to East Anglia. But relief it is on its way.

:09:59.:10:03.

At the shape of a new road linking the A52 south of Grantham to the

:10:04.:10:08.

A52. The local economy will get a lift. An estimated ?745 million

:10:09.:10:16.

boost. I think it could be huge. Not only in terms of the retail

:10:17.:10:20.

opportunity but also the out`of`town distribution opportunities with the

:10:21.:10:24.

trunk road, and I think there are plans with regards to a distribution

:10:25.:10:27.

hub around the south side of the town which would take advantage of

:10:28.:10:34.

the new road. The plan also includes building 4000 new homes which an

:10:35.:10:39.

arms this woman, who has lived in little pond and since she was eight.

:10:40.:10:43.

It is a nice little village. And you are likely to have new neighbours.

:10:44.:10:51.

No, not at all. How do you feel about it? It is not good at all. If

:10:52.:10:57.

residents are hoping for a sympathetic hearing from their local

:10:58.:11:00.

MP, they might be disappointed because Nick Bowles is the local

:11:01.:11:04.

planning minister, and he has been urging local councils to speed up

:11:05.:11:08.

such housing schemes. Frankly, there is no it screws for a local

:11:09.:11:13.

authority not to put in a local plan in place. That is a fundamental

:11:14.:11:16.

responsibility of theirs and many authorities have done it. Those that

:11:17.:11:20.

haven't needed to get a move on. It is all quite here, but this time

:11:21.:11:26.

next year, this ancient village might have some noisy neighbours as

:11:27.:11:31.

the road builders move in. Beautiful skies there.

:11:32.:11:34.

Colin's here with the sport later, but earlier today he was out and

:11:35.:11:40.

about meeting someone very special. We are hidden away. He has no clue

:11:41.:11:45.

we are coming. Find out in a few minutes to has won this Unsung Hero

:11:46.:11:53.

2013 award. This time next week, there'll be a

:11:54.:11:56.

special service getting under way at Southwell Minster to bid farewell to

:11:57.:12:00.

Paul Butler as he leaves to become Bishop of Durham. It'll be well over

:12:01.:12:03.

a year before a successor is in place, but the outgoing Bishop

:12:04.:12:06.

denies there'll be a leadership vacuum in the Diocese. As he

:12:07.:12:11.

prepares to take up one of the most senior positions in the Church of

:12:12.:12:14.

England, he's been reflecting on his time there with Quentin Rayner.

:12:15.:12:24.

When Paul Butler arrived almost four years ago, he assumed he would be at

:12:25.:12:29.

Southwell until he retired. He's a priest who never expected to be a

:12:30.:12:32.

bishop. I was very surprised when I was first approached with it. But it

:12:33.:12:38.

is a huge challenge and a huge privilege. It is slightly scary

:12:39.:12:43.

knowing I will be the 73rd Bishop of Durham. He feels he has achieved his

:12:44.:12:48.

aim of being out in the community. Things like transforming lots

:12:49.:12:55.

together, rural support, there have been some good developments in terms

:12:56.:12:59.

of engagement in the community, the relationships with community

:13:00.:13:02.

leaders, City Council, County Council have been great. We are very

:13:03.:13:06.

sorry to see Paul going. He has been a man of the people, out and about

:13:07.:13:11.

in the towns and villages. He has been on his prayer walks, he has

:13:12.:13:17.

clean shoes in the town centres. And he has been around for people to see

:13:18.:13:21.

him. A backlog of appointments in the Church of England means there

:13:22.:13:24.

will not be a new bishop installed until Easter 2015 at the earliest.

:13:25.:13:30.

Added to that, the dean of Southwell has announced his retirement from

:13:31.:13:34.

next year. What effect will this have on the leadership of the

:13:35.:13:39.

dioceses? It is a fantastic leadership team. The real work is

:13:40.:13:43.

done in the parishes. And the parish leadership will get on with what

:13:44.:13:47.

they do well in the parishes because that is where the Church of England

:13:48.:13:55.

is at his bets. `` is at its best. I will take with me great memories,

:13:56.:14:02.

wonderful people, great plays. I will have lots and lots of happy

:14:03.:14:04.

memories. A former Derbyshire soldier who's

:14:05.:14:07.

helped set up a new charity for disaster victims is about to fly out

:14:08.:14:12.

to the Philippines. James Harris from Draycott served with the Royal

:14:13.:14:16.

Engineers for 13 years. He says there's a huge pool of skills among

:14:17.:14:19.

retired military people and their new charity, called Unseen Heroes,

:14:20.:14:25.

has a lot to offer. He and two other colleagues will be flying out

:14:26.:14:28.

tomorrow to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

:14:29.:14:33.

A fresh bid for ?14 million of lottery funding to develop

:14:34.:14:35.

Nottingham Castle has been approved for submission. The Heritage Lottery

:14:36.:14:40.

Fund has asked the city council to resubmit its plans, which include a

:14:41.:14:43.

new visitor centre and greater access to the caves. The council's

:14:44.:14:48.

first bid for funding the revamp was turned down back in May. Second time

:14:49.:14:55.

lucky, we hope! A deaf actress, dancer and now

:14:56.:14:58.

singer`songwriter who lives in Derby says it's her ambition to break into

:14:59.:15:01.

the music industry. Rebecca`Anne Withey worked on the BBC teenage

:15:02.:15:06.

drama Grange Hill. When she lost most of her hearing, she says, she

:15:07.:15:11.

also lost her confidence. But now she's determined to make her musical

:15:12.:15:14.

mark, as our Reporter Satnam Rana's been finding out.

:15:15.:15:24.

Rebecca`Anne Withey is severely deaf with her hearing being lost when she

:15:25.:15:29.

was 18. She uses her memories of music to write songs now.

:15:30.:15:46.

This video filmed at Elvaston Castle is the first song she has recorded

:15:47.:15:53.

with Stephen Heselton, also deaf and works with the deaf charity. There

:15:54.:15:58.

is definitely a stereotype that people believe that you can't hear

:15:59.:16:02.

anything, and that you never did and can't. That's not the case

:16:03.:16:06.

especially with the technology and equipment we have now. I'd like to

:16:07.:16:10.

think that this project demonstrates that actually deaf people can be

:16:11.:16:18.

very talented in the music world. That's a fantastic achievement for

:16:19.:16:21.

Rebecca and it's so important the deaf community is aware that Rebecca

:16:22.:16:25.

has created her own song in that way, and it means the deaf

:16:26.:16:29.

community, hopefully, will become inspired to make their own songs as

:16:30.:16:32.

well. This is just the start for Rebecca.

:16:33.:16:36.

She wants to continue working with Steven and become the first deaf

:16:37.:16:40.

artist in the UK to be signed up I label. `` by a label.

:16:41.:16:49.

Now, something else equally wonderful...

:16:50.:16:56.

That was over egging it slightly. As he prepares for his 100th Test

:16:57.:16:59.

match, England batsman Kevin Pietersen has launched an attack on

:17:00.:17:01.

his former Nottinghamshire colleagues. He's revealed he was

:17:02.:17:04.

given a hostile reception when he signed for the club in the year

:17:05.:17:07.

2000. Pietersen's currently preparing for this week's opening

:17:08.:17:11.

Ashes Test with Australia. He had several falling outs in his five

:17:12.:17:15.

years at Notts and says the issues started as soon as he arrived. When

:17:16.:17:23.

you get to Nottingham, and one of the first songs you hear when you

:17:24.:17:29.

get into the dressing room is I've Never Met A Nice South African, and

:17:30.:17:34.

you hear it all the time, and a young kid starts coming in and

:17:35.:17:37.

stealing the headlines and taking the gloss away from Nottingham's

:17:38.:17:43.

finest youngsters and established players, it hurts a lot of them. I

:17:44.:17:47.

copped a lot of it. I will talk about it when I finish my career in

:17:48.:17:51.

a locked more detail. Notts have declined to comment but it's well

:17:52.:17:54.

known he clashed with a number of members of staff, including the

:17:55.:17:57.

captain, who was once left so frustrated he threw Pietersen's kit

:17:58.:18:00.

out of a top floor dressing room window. More, I'm sure, in his next

:18:01.:18:07.

book! But, first, Carl Froch says he's getting better with age.

:18:08.:18:10.

For the next two nights, we've got exclusive behind the scenes access

:18:11.:18:13.

to the world boxing champion's final sessions in his Nottingham gym. On

:18:14.:18:16.

Saturday, he'll be at a sell`out Manchester arena against fellow Brit

:18:17.:18:19.

George Groves, who's ten years his junior. Mark Shardlow has been

:18:20.:18:23.

finding out the key to Carl's success.

:18:24.:18:30.

It's that time in life when your body starts slowing down. When

:18:31.:18:34.

footballers retire, when newspapers start calling you a veteran. So far,

:18:35.:18:39.

the mid 30s have brought the best out of Carl Froch. At 36 people say

:18:40.:18:46.

I'm getting old, but I am 36 years old but I've been a professional

:18:47.:18:52.

boxer first 11 years. And I am in my physical prime. His last fight was a

:18:53.:19:00.

modern classic. He became four times world champion. And lapped up the

:19:01.:19:05.

celebrity lifestyle by joining ITV's Stepping Out programme. Do you

:19:06.:19:10.

regret being out of that celebrity scene? I never do anything with

:19:11.:19:16.

regrets. I wouldn't take part in something I think I will regret

:19:17.:19:21.

this. I'm you only enjoyed it. I did myself proud. I did Patrick Swayze

:19:22.:19:26.

Prout on my last dance and I pulled it off. You all doubt. I was

:19:27.:19:33.

injured, my lover back was sore. I didn't want to risk it. I had to say

:19:34.:19:38.

to myself, what's more important? Dancing or boxing? Boxing is my

:19:39.:19:43.

livelihood. On Saturday, Carl Froch five to 25`year`old, who is never

:19:44.:19:47.

lost a professional fight and who is annoying him. One thing I've noticed

:19:48.:19:52.

about this fight, you usually respect your opponents. I wouldn't

:19:53.:19:58.

say your friends, but this is not the case with this clean cut George

:19:59.:20:02.

Groves. He is downright rude and I don't like rude people. It has

:20:03.:20:08.

motivated me, it has given me that extra drive. When I get up in the

:20:09.:20:12.

morning, and I think, shall I go tomorrow? I think I am going to go

:20:13.:20:17.

today because I want to do the business with him. The fact he is so

:20:18.:20:21.

arrogant, it's given me the motivation at this late stage of my

:20:22.:20:23.

career. Tomorrow we go on a training session

:20:24.:20:27.

with Carl and his best mate as they prepare for the fight which will

:20:28.:20:31.

have a worldwide pay per view TV audience on Saturday night.

:20:32.:20:33.

Leicester Tigers next Premiership Games are crucial to the season.

:20:34.:20:36.

That's according to the club's Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill.

:20:37.:20:39.

He says, despite all the injuries, he has a strong squad to draw on for

:20:40.:20:43.

the upcoming match with London Irish.

:20:44.:20:48.

We've got a good enough squad and good enough players and we did

:20:49.:20:52.

against wasps. We just didn't play well enough. That is my fault. We

:20:53.:20:57.

need to start putting that right and it starts this weekend. You've got

:20:58.:21:03.

to crack on. It's not all doom and gloom. Somebody's misfortune will be

:21:04.:21:05.

our opportunity. Now, it's time to find out who has

:21:06.:21:09.

won the BBC East Midlands Sports Unsung Hero for 2013.

:21:10.:21:12.

We've gone through all the nominations. We found a final three.

:21:13.:21:17.

And today I made a surprise presentation to the winner. But,

:21:18.:21:22.

first, a quick recap on our finalists.

:21:23.:21:27.

John Ball has written the footprint for coaching football to blind and

:21:28.:21:31.

partially sighted players spending nearly 50 years volunteering. Monica

:21:32.:21:36.

and Shaun White are close to 30 years running the trampoline club.

:21:37.:21:45.

And Colin Magee has half a century of teaching sailing. He has broken

:21:46.:21:49.

down barriers to make the sport available to all. So, now time to

:21:50.:21:58.

present our award. It has gone to Colin Magee. He has no clue it's

:21:59.:22:05.

coming. I am here very proudly to make you the BBC East Midlands Today

:22:06.:22:12.

Unsung Hero 2013, congratulations. I get the impression that you're not

:22:13.:22:18.

often stuck for words, but you are now. I am absolutely flabbergasted.

:22:19.:22:28.

You nominated Colin, why did you do that? He is very special. The time,

:22:29.:22:35.

the effort he has put in to make sailing accessible for everybody. He

:22:36.:22:40.

has helped volunteers who have put ours back into the sport and he

:22:41.:22:44.

never looks for recognition. Let's see if you've gathered yourself. I

:22:45.:22:49.

haven't got over the shop. Tremendous thank you to everybody.

:22:50.:22:54.

It's just something I do and something I love doing, for young

:22:55.:23:00.

people, for disabled people. And getting people on the water. But I

:23:01.:23:07.

am just absolutely overwhelmed. And it is not very often that I am moved

:23:08.:23:10.

to tears. And then it was photos, and plenty

:23:11.:23:14.

of chat. Certainly not lost for words later. Colin Magee will now

:23:15.:23:17.

represent the East Midlands at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year

:23:18.:23:21.

Awards here on BBC One in December, where he has a chance of winning the

:23:22.:23:29.

national award. Goodness knows how he would react if that happens.

:23:30.:23:35.

Colin, we love you, great reaction, fantastic.

:23:36.:23:37.

Kaye will be here any minute with the full weather forecast but you

:23:38.:23:40.

can't have failed to notice that it's getting a lot colder. So no

:23:41.:23:44.

prizes for guessing who's making significant preparations for the

:23:45.:23:47.

freeze. Yes, our gritting lorries are getting ready to go out on our

:23:48.:23:50.

roads tonight. Sumeer Kalyani reports.

:23:51.:23:58.

As temperatures dropped this week, motorists are being warned about

:23:59.:24:01.

treacherous conditions. Cue the winter hero, grip. We fully stocked

:24:02.:24:08.

in terms of salt. Have two tonnes of an hundred thousand tonnes of salt.

:24:09.:24:15.

That's enough to last as 100 days of frost, 15 days of heavy snowfall.

:24:16.:24:22.

Leicester City Council have stockpiled nearly 3000 tonnes. They

:24:23.:24:28.

have a fleet of six trucks to wheel into action. The authority says the

:24:29.:24:33.

onus isn't only on them. We have put out over 100 temp on Mac `` would

:24:34.:24:46.

have put out over 100 grit bins. We have been explaining to people how

:24:47.:24:51.

they can help themselves. With winter at around the corner, and if

:24:52.:24:54.

weather predictions are anything to go by, these gritting trucks will be

:24:55.:24:57.

Council money well spent. It is cold in here.

:24:58.:25:09.

He is a gentleman and he has given me his jacket.

:25:10.:25:13.

Now, the weather. Can I borrow it? It is freezing in

:25:14.:25:18.

here! But we have had some gorgeous sunshine to go with that coldness

:25:19.:25:24.

today, and it got you out snapping. This beautiful photo taken this

:25:25.:25:28.

afternoon. Thank you for that one and keep them coming in. Things are

:25:29.:25:35.

changing unfortunately. We have an area of low pressure pushing in from

:25:36.:25:40.

the North this time which will bring some wet weather tomorrow. Some

:25:41.:25:43.

wintriness in this across the Peak District and that anions. A serving

:25:44.:25:49.

of what an windy weather to go with the coldness. `` wet and windy

:25:50.:25:55.

weather. It is a game of two halves tonight. We dry, clear, the

:25:56.:26:00.

temperatures are falling like a stone. We will see an early frost

:26:01.:26:06.

tonight. By midnight, we will be down to minus one or minus two. The

:26:07.:26:11.

winds cup, and the temperatures recover by the end of the night. We

:26:12.:26:16.

will be above freezing at about three or four. With the comes the

:26:17.:26:20.

wind and rain. It is a crowded, wet and windy start the day tomorrow.

:26:21.:26:25.

The rain is patchy to start off with but we will see a band of heavy rain

:26:26.:26:28.

following on. It clears out of the way by the end of the afternoon so

:26:29.:26:35.

sunshine returning. But the showers could turn wintry. Most of us

:26:36.:26:40.

staying dry into the afternoon. It will be cold again with highs of

:26:41.:26:44.

six. For the latter part of the week, things settle down. An area of

:26:45.:26:49.

low pressure pushes southwards, pressure builds on behind that, we

:26:50.:26:56.

will keep this cool wind. A cool day on Thursday, but mostly dry and

:26:57.:26:59.

bright and it stays that way into Friday. The winds ease down by

:27:00.:27:02.

Friday so it should feel a little bit warmer by then.

:27:03.:27:06.

Good, because I would have to give you your jacket back!

:27:07.:27:09.

Now, after months of build`up, tomorrow morning at 7:45am we'll

:27:10.:27:14.

find out if Leicester is the next UK City of Culture. Up against Hull,

:27:15.:27:17.

Dundee and Swansea Bay, the Culture Secretary will announce the winner

:27:18.:27:20.

early tomorrow morning. Last week, each bid team had their final chance

:27:21.:27:24.

to fight for the title and pitch to the judges. We'll be live in

:27:25.:27:29.

Leicester as they wait for that all important decision. So do join us

:27:30.:27:41.

tomorrow morning on BBC One. Fingers crossed. Go, Leicester, the! See you

:27:42.:27:43.
