on street possession of drugs, and while that is an important hssue,
we need the stop and searchds to be focused on the big prioritids.
Robbery, street crime, violent crime, burglary.
Stop and search is a powerful way for police to prevent
crime, but the government is worried that it is damaging community
relations because some groups are being stopped more frequently.

four times more likely than white people to be stopped and se`rched.
That is only slightly less than the previous year.

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,
Mansfield beat Newport County, `0. So, it's goodbye from me,
but with your weather now, It has been a decent day, and
despite those wins. I can't give you a completely dry day tomorrow, but
those hours will be isolated. It will be later. It is paying on that
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.
