Earlier, I spoke to Sarah Long from VisitEngland.


I asked her why tourism in the East Midlands was doing so well


There are a lot of different reasons. Firstly, the East Lidlands


are a great destination. Thdre are a lot of reasons to go there `nyways.


Fantastic countryside, great cities. There are lots of reasons. How


important our new technologhes? Remax new technologies has proved to


be incredibly important. Those. Communities that are up fivd


invested in new technologies. They are keeping up visitor trends. They


are researching their days out while they are on the go, on their


tablets. Looking ahead, is ` future good? I think it is. Visits to


historic houses were up, th`t is a another reason why the East Midlands


is doing so well. Thank you. Onto football,


and a busy night for our te`ms. In the Championship, Nottingham


Forest won away at Bournemotth, 2`1. In Division One, Notts County beat


Colchester by two goals to one. And in Division Two,

but with your weather now, It has been a decent day, and

cool side, and certainly cold nights to come tonight. It will relain dry.


Temperatures will be going hnto single figures. Maybe as low as four


or five Celsius. Tomorrow morning, a chilly start. A great start, though,


lots of sunshine around in the morning. A lot of clouds increase in


the afternoon, with some isolated showers later on in the day, but


plenty of sunshine in betwedn. Those temperatures are struggling once


again, we will get up to 16 or 7 Celsius.


In a few moments we will have a full national forecast,


but for now I'll leave you with a look at the outlook.


looking at the risk of showers for Friday though.


Good evening. Autumn, August. It's an easy slip of the tongue to make,


but the two do seem mixed up at the moment. Tomorrow morning, you could


be forgiven for thinking it's October, as you step out the door.


It's going to be cold. Why so chilly, well, because we are drawing


the air down from the north and the brisk breeze dies down. The showers


disappear and the temperatures tumble. Towns and cities nine or


ten. In rural areas widely down to four or five degrees and some places


just two or three above freezing.
