sclerosis in 2001. Four years ago she decided that one day shd was

Back home in Nottingham and with a gold medal, Daniel Whittingham says

stop you and ask if you werd competing. `` I met loads of people.

:03:22.:03:27.

Yet, just five years ago whhle serving in Afghanistan, Danhel's

:03:39.:03:46.

in service, to compete in the Invictus Games. His rugby tdam won

:03:47.:03:54.

gold for England. On the buzzer the place just went crazy. I have never

heard screaming like it. Thd crowd went mental. We were going round and

:04:35.:04:39.

settle for their second goalless draw in a role in the champhonship.

:04:40.:04:43.

The Reds have dropped to second in the table but remain unbeatdn in the

:04:44.:04:49.

Let's check your weather now for tonight and the start of thd week

:05:22.:05:26.

I hope you made the most of the dry and bright weather today, as there

:05:27.:05:37.

is some rain tomorrow. The cloud will trap the heat in to make it a

:05:38.:05:40.

mild night. Lows of 14 or 14 Celsius. On Monday there is a lot of

:05:41.:05:43.

cloud around and there will be some showers dotted around. The clump up

:05:49.:05:54.

`` not a very good story to tell on Tuesday. Thankfully it improves on

:05:55.:05:57.

Wednesday. Back a little later than ustal, just

:05:58.:05:58.

after 10:20pm tonight. Good evening. For many, September

west of London, way above the average for this time of year.

:06:25.:06:30.

Through the night tonight relatively quiet conditions, with clearer skies

:06:31.:06:34.

in the south. I want to draw your attention to these showers in

:06:35.:06:38.

southern Spain and across the Pyrenees. Moist air may trigger

:06:39.:06:45.

showers over channel coasts by dawn. We could have an issue with dense

:06:46.:06:55.

fog patches in central and southern areas first A foggy start. Showers

:06:56.:06:59.

in the south. These are drift north and east throughout the day. As with

:07:00.:07:04.
