following a breakthrough in relations. --

:00:00.:00:08.

?45,000,000 is to be spent, giving children a better start in life

:00:09.:00:26.

This is our legacy. This will influence how child care is

:00:27.:00:47.

delivered across the whole country. Plus, the stage is set. 50,000 fans

:00:48.:00:53.

are expected, and I will be finding out how the city of Leicestdr is

:00:54.:00:56.

preparing to welcome home the Fabian. And opening up the caves,

:00:57.:01:02.

you will not believe the history hidden under the Castlerock.

:01:03.:01:16.

Welcome to Tuesday's progralme. First tonight ` around

:01:17.:01:18.

12,000 children living in some of the most deprived areas of the East

:01:19.:01:21.

Midlands are to be offered help to get a better start in life. It's all

:01:22.:01:25.

thanks to a programme, led by parents in Nottingham, which has

:01:26.:01:28.

secured ?45 million of lottery cash. Nottingham is one of

:01:29.:01:30.

areas in the UK receiving money to help vulnerable children under the

:01:31.:01:34.

age of three and their families In a moment we'll be hearing from two

:01:35.:01:37.

of the people behind the lottery bid but first Carolyn Moses has been

:01:38.:01:40.

taking a closer look at the detail of the project.

:01:41.:01:54.

At this centre in Bulwell, the parents are leading the way. They've

:01:55.:01:57.

come up with the ideas to try to boost opportunities for thehr

:01:58.:02:01.

children and now the support is coming. Babies and toddlers here can

:02:02.:02:04.

expect some big changes in the way they are taught, fed, and

:02:05.:02:09.

encouraged to develop. And so can their families. Nottingham hs one of

:02:10.:02:26.

just five places in the country to be given this lottery cash `long

:02:27.:02:29.

Bradford Blackpool and Southend and Lambeth in London. But why? Figures

:02:30.:02:40.

show that a quarter of adults here have no formal qualifications and

:02:41.:02:43.

almost 40% of children are classed as living in poverty. Now that

:02:44.:02:46.

brings its own challenges lhke poor health, low birth weight,

:02:47.:02:50.

behavioural and social problems So Nottingham will now get ?45,000 000

:02:51.:02:52.

over 10 years. Redesigning local health and education servicds in

:02:53.:03:10.

Arboretum, and St Anne's. Yellow mac children have through the

:03:11.:03:25.

Small Steps Big Changes problem as adults will hopefully be in

:03:26.:03:27.

employment, they will be confident, they will be secure, they whll be

:03:28.:03:30.

able to field that they havd had the best possible start in their lives,

:03:31.:03:33.

and this is a fantastic opportunity for us to put that into place.

:03:34.:03:36.

Because you have to start rhght at the very beginning. There is no

:03:37.:03:40.

point later on in life. And parents of those who will benefit are flying

:03:41.:03:55.

the flag. When you talk to

:03:56.:03:56.

play time, more places to t`ke their children, and that is what

:03:57.:04:07.

this means. It will improve the outcomes for babies. Definitely

:04:08.:04:09.

With their social and emotional development. Their language,. The

:04:10.:04:12.

With their social and emotional development. Their language. The

:04:13.:04:14.

program last 3 decades with supporters describing it as a once

:04:15.:04:16.

in a generation opportunity to tackle the unfairness of chhldhood

:04:17.:04:19.

aggravation and inequality. Karen Moses, big seasonal today.

:04:20.:04:21.

Doesn't this really expose ` failure by the council? Well, 150

:04:22.:04:30.

authorities this money, and all of them have areas where there are the

:04:31.:04:35.

areas, where there are more challenges for families. We are

:04:36.:04:38.

celebrating today that the lottery chose to give this money to

:04:39.:04:42.

Nottingham, and to actually support us and our partners with city care

:04:43.:04:46.

of. To really support familhes to have a investment at a level never

:04:47.:04:55.

seen before. Can I do say, ht is 39% of children are classed as living in

:04:56.:04:58.

poverty in Nottingham, and ht would suggest a failure to providd direct

:04:59.:05:03.

support for these children? There are a lot of things that contribute

:05:04.:05:07.

to tell property, and with this government levels of child poverty

:05:08.:05:10.

have gone up. That would be a question you would have to `sk

:05:11.:05:13.

someone at a higher level than me. We are doing what we can, and we are

:05:14.:05:17.

trying to work hard to work for children and make sure we are doing

:05:18.:05:23.

our best for families in Nottingham. Some of that has been taken away.

:05:24.:05:27.

Here we have got an opportunity that we have bid for, and we are

:05:28.:05:30.

celebrating that we can now do more to support those families. Lichelle,

:05:31.:05:34.

can I ask you, how will this money be spent? It will make a difference

:05:35.:05:38.

by connecting with families, I'd think that is 1 of the most

:05:39.:05:42.

important things. Over thesd reports you have heard a lot about dvidence

:05:43.:05:45.

`based programs, and improvhng outcomes for children. That is

:05:46.:05:49.

exactly what we want to do. We are fantastic at bridging progr`mmes

:05:50.:05:53.

together, but if we don't connect with families, we will not lake a

:05:54.:05:57.

difference. That is why we have put this bid together, and why we spoke

:05:58.:06:02.

to 1500 families. You say connecting with families. Tangibly, wh`t does

:06:03.:06:06.

that mean? How will you be spending the money? Parents will be hnvolved

:06:07.:06:11.

in deciding how the money is spent. Obviously, we put in our proposals,

:06:12.:06:15.

and they've funded as on thd basis of those, but actually they wanted

:06:16.:06:19.

us to be very detailed only for the 1st couple of years of this 10 year

:06:20.:06:23.

programme. What we have to do is prove that what we are doing works,

:06:24.:06:27.

and we will do that by meastring and testing everything that we do. If I

:06:28.:06:32.

can as a last question, how will you know if it is working when ht has

:06:33.:06:38.

worked? As Michelle says, there will be a lot of review of the things we

:06:39.:06:42.

do, to make sure that the programmes we are using are working, and that

:06:43.:06:46.

we can see tangible outcomes in terms of children's nutrition, in

:06:47.:06:51.

terms of their readiness for school, in terms of engagemdnt with

:06:52.:06:57.

families. Will it take 10 ydars Michelle? Some of the things will.

:06:58.:07:01.

Some of the programmes will be shorter. We will use a varidty of

:07:02.:07:07.

methods. It is obviously important that everyone knows they ard getting

:07:08.:07:10.

value for money. Thank you to both of you.

:07:11.:07:13.

A couple who wanted the Italian authorities to re`open an

:07:14.:07:16.

investigation into the death of their daughter have lost thdir

:07:17.:07:19.

legal challenge. But Pat and Ray Martin from Nottinghamshire say

:07:20.:07:23.

they'll continue to fight for justice. A court had previotsly

:07:24.:07:27.

ruled Claire Martin killed herself by repeatedly stabbing hersdlf in

:07:28.:07:33.

the neck. That's despite a pathologist saying she'd bedn

:07:34.:07:36.

attacked. With more details, here's Simon Hare.

:07:37.:07:40.

It's not the news they wantdd, but it wasn't unexpected. The M`rtins

:07:41.:07:45.

from Sutton Ashfield in Nottinghamshire have just hdard an

:07:46.:07:48.

Italian court has decided not to reopen the investigation into their

:07:49.:07:51.

moment. Or maybe the Italians think it is a dead`end, but

:07:52.:07:59.

we feel as though it has bedn a miscarriage of justice. Defhnitely.

:08:00.:08:04.

Claire, who was 30, died two years ago. She had suffered multiple stab

:08:05.:08:07.

wounds to her neck. Her pardnts do now have translations of thd

:08:08.:08:12.

forensic reports. The first ruled out

:08:13.:08:16.

suicide and said Claire must have been attacked.

:08:17.:08:20.

It clearly states that it w`s murder. You know, knife wounds from

:08:21.:08:24.

different angles. Evidence not even getting used and destroyed, you

:08:25.:08:32.

know, something out of a Peter Sellers movie, it really is. A

:08:33.:08:37.

farce. The case has received cover`ge in

:08:38.:08:39.

Italy, where Claire had livdd with her partner and son for sevdral

:08:40.:08:42.

years. Her parents hope that publicity combined with the

:08:43.:08:47.

continuing efforts of the Foreign Office will help them in thdir fight

:08:48.:08:50.

for the truth. Some days are easier than others.

:08:51.:08:54.

But none of them are partictlarly good

:08:55.:08:56.

days. No. Are you going to keep on

:08:57.:09:00.

fighting for Claire? Yes. Ydah. Always. The truth is out thdre. It's

:09:01.:09:05.

got to come out. In the garden of their home stands a

:09:06.:09:11.

flower called Claire's Rose. They say it brings them great

:09:12.:09:14.

comfort, but finding out wh`t really happened to her is the only thing

:09:15.:09:21.

that will end their torment. Simon Hare, BBC East Midlands Tod`y,

:09:22.:09:23.

Still to come ` in Sport sole great news for our local gylnasts.

:09:24.:09:33.

In the sport, it is Commonwdalth games selection for Becky Downie,

:09:34.:09:40.

Leah Starkey, and Sam Oldhal. More coming up.

:09:41.:09:45.

A charity is raising funds for equipment to prevent brain damage in

:09:46.:09:50.

very sick newborn babies. Ldicester Hospitals Charity has set up an

:09:51.:09:55.

appeal called Little Lives, Big Journeys. The aim is to install

:09:56.:09:58.

specially designed cooling jackets in ambulances, saving vital time as

:09:59.:10:03.

the babies are transported. Navtej Johal reports.

:10:04.:10:08.

This is a life jacket of a different sort. Leicester Royal infirlary uses

:10:09.:10:13.

these cooling units to keep the temperature of sick newborn babies

:10:14.:10:18.

at the optimum level to prevent them suffering brain damage. It hs what

:10:19.:10:23.

was used to help Vicky and Lichael's son Jude, when he was born

:10:24.:10:26.

after he suffered from a lack of oxygen in the woman. They'rd

:10:27.:10:30.

supporting the campaign known as Little Lives, Big Journeys to get

:10:31.:10:33.

them installed in ambulances. They had to cool Jude down really

:10:34.:10:37.

really crudely with fans and with gloves filled with cold watdr either

:10:38.:10:41.

side of his head, so for thd ambulance to be equipped with a

:10:42.:10:45.

cooling unit, they'd be abld to start the cooling in the hospital

:10:46.:10:48.

born in and on the journey, which for Jude was over an hour, dvery

:10:49.:10:52.

minute counts, really. Every week in the East Midl`nds a

:10:53.:10:56.

baby is transported for cooling treatment using these ambul`nces.

:10:57.:11:00.

The idea is that in future they will receive that treatment as soon the

:11:01.:11:05.

in the ambulance potentiallx preventing brain damage, and even

:11:06.:11:07.

saving lives. Itt can make a

:11:08.:11:10.

cooling is time`critical, so we know that babies have to be cooldd down

:11:11.:11:15.

by the time they are six hotrs old. That's the time when the

:11:16.:11:18.

brain injuries happen. So cool by six hours means we have met the

:11:19.:11:21.

targets. The situation that we were hn was

:11:22.:11:23.

just terrible, it had gone from being the best day of our lhves to

:11:24.:11:28.

earliest opportunity and th`t they are in safe hands with people who

:11:29.:11:35.

Leicester Hospital's charitx is hoping to raise ?60,000 by the end

:11:36.:11:40.

of the year to kit out two other ambulances with the units. Loney it

:11:41.:11:43.

believes could make a life`saving difference. Navtej Johal, BBC East

:11:44.:11:48.

Now, ten years ago a band from Leicester released a debut studio

:11:49.:12:00.

album which shot straight into the top five of the charts. The band was

:12:01.:12:04.

called Kasabian. Since then they've established themselves as one of the

:12:05.:12:06.

country's most high profile and popular groups. This weekend they're

:12:07.:12:09.

coming back to Leicester to perform in front of tens of thousand of fans

:12:10.:12:12.

in their home city. And it's promising to be quite an evdnt. As

:12:13.:12:15.

Made in Leicester but heard, watched and enjoyed around the world.

:12:16.:12:30.

Kasabian 1 of the biggest b`nds in British music, are 6 Judeo `lbum has

:12:31.:12:36.

gone straight to number 1, `nd later this month they are headlinhng

:12:37.:12:40.

Glastonbury. But before that, a very special homecoming. This wedkend

:12:41.:12:46.

they will be performing in Leicester boss Mike Victoria Park, and 50 000

:12:47.:12:53.

fans will be here. I think ht will be really good. Probably thd

:12:54.:12:56.

greatest thing that has ever happened. It is amazing just seen it

:12:57.:13:02.

coming together, we have bedn looking at it on the site plan for

:13:03.:13:06.

so long, and now it is finally here so it is really exciting. The work

:13:07.:13:11.

to transform the park had already begun. The bars are being btilt the

:13:12.:13:17.

toilets are being lined up, and the stage is being set. Come Saturday

:13:18.:13:20.

night, this is where every Kasabian fan will want to be, here at the

:13:21.:13:25.

front, just metres away frol the band. At the gate could also prove a

:13:26.:13:30.

hit for the local economy. The chamber of contents says thd event

:13:31.:13:34.

could bring in almost ?2.5 lillion to the city. As many as 15,000 hotel

:13:35.:13:43.

rooms are booked across the county. Win tickets went on sale last

:13:44.:13:46.

November, the response was phenomenal. We have never sden

:13:47.:13:50.

bookings come through the reservation system so fast `s they

:13:51.:13:55.

did on that morning. You have to go as far as Nottinghamshire or

:13:56.:13:58.

Warwickshire before you see bookings like that. Kasabian have never

:13:59.:14:03.

forgotten the Ritz. This wedkend promises to be a homecoming to

:14:04.:14:08.

remember, not just for the band but also for the city. It is gohng to be

:14:09.:14:18.

a fantastic show. Staying with tourist attractions

:14:19.:14:24.

and did you know that Nottingham is the only city in the country

:14:25.:14:27.

sitting on hundreds of man`lade caves. Some of the most dralatic are

:14:28.:14:29.

beneath the castle. Recentlx, we reported on plans to revamp the

:14:30.:14:32.

castle with the help of a mtlti million pound grant from thd

:14:33.:14:35.

Heritage Lottery Fund. And opening up more of the caves will bd a big

:14:36.:14:38.

part of that, as Jo Healey Inside Castle Rock itself

:14:39.:14:41.

is a network of a quarter of a mile of man`made caves. That makds this

:14:42.:14:45.

mediaeval castle unique. Wh`t is also unique is the stone th`t they

:14:46.:14:47.

are built out of has it own name, it is actually called Nottingh`m Castle

:14:48.:14:51.

sandstone. Let's take a look inside MUSIC PLAYS ` Nick Cave and the Bad

:14:52.:14:54.

Seeds ` Red Right Hand. returned from the Crusades. They

:14:55.:15:05.

were used to get goods from the river then flowing nearby up into

:15:06.:15:12.

the castle. Graham, this is really historically significant. Edward the

:15:13.:15:16.

3rd passed through this tunnel, He did. Him and 24 knights. They

:15:17.:15:21.

used this passageway in 1330 to gain

:15:22.:15:24.

access to the castle, where his usurper was, Roger Mortimer, and he

:15:25.:15:27.

had him arrested, taken to Tyburn and hanged for treason, and

:15:28.:15:31.

continued as King for anothdr 4 years.

:15:32.:15:34.

This is a laser image of th`t tunnel from the castle at the top to

:15:35.:15:38.

the foot of the rock. There are plans now to create a much lore

:15:39.:15:41.

modern link between the two. Nigel, this is where your piece de

:15:42.:15:46.

resistance is going to be, hsn't it? Yeah, this is a very import`nt spot

:15:47.:15:53.

where we are going to put a brand`new large glass elevator that

:15:54.:15:57.

is going to go right up to the solid rock for 100 metres, linking

:15:58.:16:00.

up to the castle. To achieve that and open up more of

:16:01.:16:02.

the cave network, there is ` lots of detailed archaeological work to be

:16:03.:16:06.

done yet. But, if it gets the go`ahead, work should start in

:16:07.:16:09.

2016, more than 800 years shnce the caves where first dug out. Jo

:16:10.:16:27.

Healey, BBC East Midlands today Still to come ` a story that has

:16:28.:16:30.

legs. Quite literally. Africa to help amputees lead more

:16:31.:16:35.

independent lives. Details later. Here's Colin. We are here for 2

:16:36.:17:03.

reasons. 1 of them is standhng on the beam, they are. That is Becky

:17:04.:17:09.

Downie. To know 1's surprisd, she has been chosen for the gymnastics

:17:10.:17:14.

team for the Commonwealth G`mes in Glasgow. Also chosen is called clear

:17:15.:17:20.

Starkey, standing up there `gainst the board. She will lead thd squad

:17:21.:17:25.

for England, and that is a real breakthrough as far as she's

:17:26.:17:28.

concerned. We will be talking to her a little bit later a long. We need

:17:29.:17:32.

to bring you some little `` football news 1st. There is no questhon over

:17:33.:17:41.

Stewart appears's commitment to Nottingham Forest.

:17:42.:17:44.

Just weeks after being named as the new manager Forest were forced to

:17:45.:17:47.

deny rumours Pearce was ready to walk away. And he's faced rtmblings

:17:48.:17:50.

over his World Cup media work keeping him away from the club until

:17:51.:17:53.

His commitment as a player can never be called into question. But

:17:54.:17:58.

amazingly, Stuart Pearce has faced questions recently over his

:17:59.:18:02.

commitments as Nottingham Forest's manager before he even officially

:18:03.:18:06.

pinch of salt. There will bd somebody somewhere trying to sow the

:18:07.:18:13.

seeds somewhere. I can assure you he is totally committed, you

:18:14.:18:15.

know, he's devoted to his football club. Now, I am on the phond to

:18:16.:18:20.

them, texting him, e`mailing him all the time. There is absolutely no

:18:21.:18:23.

first bit of business for the club, bringing in two new strikers,

:18:24.:18:29.

Lars Veldwijk and Matty Fry`tt from home.

:18:30.:18:33.

Matty Fryatt is a proven go`lscorer at this level. I think it is

:18:34.:18:36.

significant that Steve Brucd offered him an improved contract to stay at

:18:37.:18:39.

Hull City in a premiership club So that would give you an indication

:18:40.:18:43.

of what Steve thought of Matty. Lars is a player that I have

:18:44.:18:46.

been to see play a couple of times with Stewart. He is really one for

:18:47.:18:50.

future a little bit, that's not to say he won't be in the squad, but I

:18:51.:18:54.

think it will take a little bit of time to settle.

:18:55.:18:57.

Well, while the hard work continues off the pitch, on it the only

:18:58.:19:00.

action you will see at the loment is from the lawnmowers. But we've got

:19:01.:19:05.

less than eight weeks now until the start of the new season, whdn the

:19:06.:19:11.

real action will begin, and tomorrow we will get to find out

:19:12.:19:14.

just what's in store with the release of the new fixtures.

:19:15.:19:16.

I think it's going to be as tough as it has every been in terms of the

:19:17.:19:21.

competition, but we hopefully will be right up there, competing for a

:19:22.:19:23.

place at least in the play`offs and hopefully in the top two.

:19:24.:19:27.

So, promotion is the aim, then, but how will Pearce motivate thd team?

:19:28.:19:31.

He was Psycho the player, whll he be Psycho the manager?

:19:32.:19:36.

Never judge a book by the cover, you know, he has got a wicked

:19:37.:19:39.

sense of humour. He creates a really good environment to work in. But he

:19:40.:19:42.

will be expected to perform, that is for sure.

:19:43.:19:51.

As you can see year, the development never stops. No wonder they are

:19:52.:19:57.

doing so well. We will talk about their success any moment.

:19:58.:20:03.

In sport, the draw for the first round of football's League Cup got

:20:04.:20:06.

made today and it sent everx one of our teams

:20:07.:20:08.

away from home. The standout ties are the trips for Notts County and

:20:09.:20:12.

Mansfield to Sheffield's Wednesday and United. Games will be played in

:20:13.:20:14.

the week beginning the 11th of August.

:20:15.:20:16.

And in Rugby, a proud moment for Leicester Tigers Ed Slater `s he

:20:17.:20:19.

forced the turnover which ldd to England's fourth try in a

going, as is coach clear St`rkey. How proud are you? I am verx, very

:20:51.:20:59.

proud and honoured to go as 1 of the team coaches. Obviously, we did feel

:21:00.:21:03.

that Becky had earned her place so I was pretty sure that she would be

:21:04.:21:07.

in the team, and I assumed that I would be in the background `s usual,

:21:08.:21:12.

coaching her up to a point `nd then watching her go out with thd team

:21:13.:21:15.

and the other team coaches, but this time I am honoured to be thd England

team coach. You have been f`irly expert `` outspoken in the past

:21:22.:21:25.

about how the England team has handled things, so are you surprised

:21:26.:21:31.

`` surprised to be chosen? @ little bit. Usually we have certain coaches

:21:32.:21:38.

for major events, and yes I have been outspoken, because as personal

:21:39.:21:44.

coaches are the ones who ard here day in day out, and obviously at the

:21:45.:21:48.

Olympics Becky went out on the floor with out me, I was in the

:21:49.:21:53.

background, and at the last Olympics she missed out, and I was a bit

:21:54.:21:57.

outspoken about that. I thotght she should have been there. But I am

:21:58.:22:01.

here coaching Becky and the team, and I will always fight my corner.

:22:02.:22:06.

You are taking on the team that is expected to do great things? Any

:22:07.:22:13.

pressure? Yes, a little bit, but the team are very experienced. H am very

:22:14.:22:19.

proud of them. We have the Liverpool girls with us here today tr`ining as

:22:20.:22:24.

well. We will work together as a team, and have done for manx years.

:22:25.:22:28.

I think they will do a good job We shall wait and see, and watch with

:22:29.:22:33.

interest. Leah Starkey, chosen to be the coach at the Commonwealth Games

:22:34.:22:38.

in Glasgow. Becky Downie and Sam Oldham will be there as well. The

:22:45.:22:49.

last week. This time last wdek, Leicester really sent it off on its

:22:50.:22:50.

way to Scotland. You may remember a few weeks ago, we

:22:51.:22:52.

featured the epic journey of two men who had the ambitious idea of

:22:53.:22:56.

driving a minibus stacked to the roof with 500 artificial legs, all

:22:57.:22:59.

the way to Africa to help alputees out there. It seemed a pretty mad

:23:00.:23:02.

idea ` in an old van with almost 200,000 miles on the

:23:03.:23:05.

clock. In fact I even joked they wouldn't get beyond the Watford Gap.

:23:06.:23:08.

But fair play to them, the pair have proved me wrong and they've come

:23:09.:23:13.

back to tell us how they got on Victoria Hicks went to meet to them

:23:14.:23:16.

and compiled this report. The whole journey was over 4000

:23:17.:23:20.

miles. There were lots of troubles on the way. We broke down pretty

:23:21.:23:23.

much problems to overcome. One of them

:23:24.:23:26.

was just even getting into certain countries. There were lots of issues

:23:27.:23:33.

where that country would want some money off us to allow us to bring

:23:34.:23:38.

the limbs in. We felt a lot of pressure that we had to obvhously

:23:39.:23:42.

succeed and get the legs thdre, it wasn't an option to fail. Sdeing how

:23:43.:23:45.

happy people were, when we got there, and the joy on their faces

and lots of emotion, it was all prosthesis of the department,where

we took the legs to. He had never

:23:54.:23:58.

seen so many legs before. Hd usually receives between 10 and 30 legs from

:23:59.:24:01.

Europe every year. And so when he had 500 on his doorstep, ye`h, I

:24:02.:24:06.

mean, he was really overwhelmed He actually cried and I think we all

:24:07.:24:12.

did, actually, didn't we? Wd all I met a guy called Sheikh, `nd he

:24:13.:24:16.

had lost his legs ten years ago, and they

:24:17.:24:21.

didn't even know what was wrong with the reason why he lost his legs And

:24:22.:24:25.

luckily we had brought a leg which he was able to use within one week

:24:26.:24:32.

of bringing the 500 legs out there

:24:33.:24:34.

we've only skimmed the surf`ce of it, it's a huge problem. So

:24:35.:24:48.

we're going to continue collecting prosthetic legs. We're hoping to

:24:49.:24:56.

collect 1000 by Christmas and have We believe that there are still over

:24:57.:25:00.

20,000 each year which could be retsed and

:25:01.:25:05.

sent across to be used in the Gambia. So, you know, we ard still

:25:06.:25:10.

going to collect from anywhere we can, anyone who has a

spare leg, we are going to try and send it over to the Gambia for

the moment. First of all, I have a picture to show you. This is a field

:25:48.:25:52.

of poppies, which is shining brightly despite the lack of

:25:53.:25:55.

sunshine. Keep these picturds coming in. There are some subtle changes on

:25:56.:26:04.

the week over the next 24 hours or so. High pressure still anchored to

:26:05.:26:07.

the north and the West. That is going nowhere over the next few

:26:08.:26:11.

days, but we had a cheeky wdather front meeting in by the back door,

:26:12.:26:16.

which will produce a little bit of rain tonight, and may still be

:26:17.:26:20.

around first thing tomorrow, so we will wake up to the gloom fhrst

thing tomorrow, but there whll be some brightness and some brdaks in

:26:24.:26:28.

that in the afternoon and a pleasant. Lovely sunshine in

:26:29.:26:32.

southern parts, but the clotd rolling into words the afternoon. A

:26:33.:26:36.

few brighter bits at the molent but that cloud will begin up once again

:26:37.:26:41.

over the next you are is. It will produce a few spots of light rain,

:26:42.:26:46.

nothing particularly heavy, just a sprinkling for the gardens lay be

say, and a very muddy one. Temperatures of 14 or 15 Celsius.

:26:57.:27:01.

Quite uncomfortable for sledping. Tomorrow morning, we started off

:27:02.:27:06.

quite great and a little bit of rain, which will clear off for the

:27:07.:27:10.

afternoon, so it pleasant into the day and feeling warm as well.

:27:11.:27:16.

Temperatures of 20 Celsius. Not much change over the next few daxs.

:27:17.:27:20.

One sporting thing to mention that's happened in the last hour or so

:27:21.:27:23.

Nottinghamshire completed a stunning run chase to pull off a six`wicket

:27:24.:27:26.

win in their LV County Championship Division One match against Liddlesex

:27:27.:27:28.

at Trent Bridge. They hit 387 for four, reaching their target with 11

:27:29.:27:31.
