That's all from the BBC News at six.

0:00:000:00:00

It's goodbye from me and,

on BBC One, we now join the BBC's

0:00:000:00:12

Good evening.

0:00:120:00:13

Coming up on BBC London News...

0:00:130:00:15

More stop and search

on the capital's streets

0:00:150:00:17

to tackle knife crime.

0:00:170:00:22

We will have the situation we had in

the 80s where we'll have a whole

0:00:220:00:26

generation of youth growing up and

hating the police.

0:00:260:00:37

But the mayor says

"targetted" stop and search

0:00:370:00:39

is a "vital tool" in keeping

the capital safe.

0:00:390:00:41

Also tonight...

0:00:410:00:42

A damning report on the service

provided to Southern

0:00:420:00:44

and Thameslink passengers.

0:00:440:00:45

People should leave each other in

peace.

0:00:450:00:52

Why a Holocaust survivor,

sent to a concentration camp

0:00:520:00:54

aged 14, is sharing her

stories with commuters.

0:00:540:00:58

Thank you, after that, for your

frankness. -- Arthur.

0:00:580:01:13

And we talk to Oscar

winner Meryl Streep

0:01:130:01:15

on her latest film and the Hollywood

headlines.

0:01:150:01:17

A very warm welcome

to the programme.

0:01:170:01:19

It's one of the biggest challenges

facing the Met Police -

0:01:190:01:22

how to reduce knife

crime on our streets.

0:01:220:01:24

Now the Mayor's promised

to "significantly increase"

0:01:240:01:25

stop and search,

as part of a crackdown

0:01:250:01:27

on violent crime in 2018.

0:01:270:01:29

However, one of Sadiq Khan's

mayoral election pledges

0:01:290:01:31

was to cut it back.

0:01:310:01:32

Our Political Correspondent,

Karl Mercer, reports.

0:01:320:01:41

Patrick is only too aware of the

damage knives can do in the hands of

0:01:410:01:44

the wrong person. So is Angeline

Hill. Both Londoners whose families

0:01:440:01:49

have been badly damaged by a crime

that is on the increase again.

0:01:490:01:53

Today, Patrick is in the cafe he

runs in Brixton.

Are you OK?

This is

0:01:530:02:02

where he spends much of his time.

We've filled him last year with his

0:02:020:02:06

son who was stabbed in the heart. --

we filmed him. This woman is

0:02:060:02:15

planning a website for families

affected by knife crime. What do

0:02:150:02:19

they make of this from the are

today? -- the London mayor.

0:02:190:02:25

The measures you are making are

counteracted to what you are trying

0:02:300:02:33

to do. Stop and search will take it

away from the police. They will not

0:02:330:02:41

go to the police when they have

problems. It will take us back to

0:02:410:02:50

youth against police.

I can

understand the initiative. It is

0:02:500:02:54

good to make the public feel safe

but the reality is it will not

0:02:540:02:58

change the problem. The reality is,

why are these kids walking about

0:02:580:03:03

with knives? Luther was 32. There

are a lot of victims who are not

0:03:030:03:09

young people.

City Hall refused

requests for interviews today, we

0:03:090:03:13

could not ask what the mayor meant

by a significant increase in stop

0:03:130:03:17

and search for top tackling knife

crime is seen as a priority. This

0:03:170:03:22

video and a call for schools to

produce knife ones last week. There

0:03:220:03:29

are some who welcomed the news.

Five

years ago, one in ten stop and

0:03:290:03:34

searches resulted in finding

something. Now the figure is about

0:03:340:03:38

one in three, which is loads better.

It is a tool we can use, and an

0:03:380:03:44

important tool. The police will be

wearing cameras, so we can see what

0:03:440:03:50

happens.

Cressida Dick has

previously said you were back an

0:03:500:03:54

increase in stop and search if it

led to lower knife crime. The

0:03:540:03:58

opponents of the mayor said it will

need to be done sensitively.

Young

0:03:580:04:08

people feel victimised. This will

crush community policing, which

0:04:080:04:12

affects all crime in London.

Scotland Yard and the men know this

0:04:120:04:16

will have to be matched by a drop in

knife crime. -- the London mayor.

0:04:160:04:22

Plenty more ahead

tonight, including...

0:04:220:04:23

Recreating part of London's history

as St Pancras Station begins

0:04:230:04:26

its 150th anniversary celebrations.

0:04:260:04:36

It is the UK's biggest rail

franchise. Southern and Thames Link

0:04:400:04:47

services have been. Olic is

0:04:470:04:53

for delays and cancellations.

0:04:530:04:54

He was responding to

a National Audit Office report

0:04:540:04:56

which says they have suffered

the worst disruption of any

0:04:560:04:59

franchise, one which has NOT

provided value for money.

0:04:590:05:01

Here's our Transport

Correspondent Tom Edwards.

0:05:010:05:02

Unreliable, not value for money,

the worst service in the country.

0:05:020:05:05

It won't surprise many passengers

that today there's more damning

0:05:050:05:07

evidence on Govia Thameslink.

0:05:070:05:09

Blighted by industrial action

and a lack of understanding

0:05:090:05:11

from Government, at its worst,

only two thirds of

0:05:110:05:13

trains arrived on time.

0:05:130:05:16

A shabby train service?

0:05:160:05:20

The franchise covers Thameslink,

Southern and Great Northern services

0:05:200:05:22

and today's report outlines how 60%

of delays have been due

0:05:220:05:26

to the operator, mainly

because of industrial action

0:05:260:05:28

and a lack of crew.

0:05:280:05:31

Nearly 40% of delays

are down to Network Rail's

0:05:310:05:33

poor infrastructure.

0:05:330:05:37

I think from a passenger's point

of view, what they don't

0:05:370:05:40

want to hear is people passing

the buck and saying

0:05:400:05:42

it is someone else's fault.

0:05:420:05:44

What they want to know is that

action is being taken to sort this

0:05:440:05:47

out, and to make sure that they see

improvements in service.

0:05:470:05:51

The report also criticises

the Government for trying

0:05:510:05:53

to increase services

as well as introducing new trains

0:05:530:05:58

and getting rid of the guards,

leading to strikes.

0:05:580:06:02

The report says the Government

didn't know about a lack of drivers,

0:06:020:06:05

or the state of the infrastructure.

0:06:050:06:09

I think this report shows

the incompetence and the dogma

0:06:090:06:12

of the DfT and the Government

and seeking to put the blame

0:06:120:06:15

on the trade unions when they knew

they were going to cause this issue

0:06:150:06:18

is a false premise, and seeking

to blame the companies

0:06:180:06:22

who are forced to bid

for what they put out

0:06:220:06:24

there is a false premise.

0:06:240:06:26

If this is dogma,

the dogma has to change.

0:06:260:06:29

The Government says unions

are the main cause of the problems.

0:06:290:06:38

I make no apology for that huge

investment in the network.

The

0:06:380:06:46

introduction of brand-new 12 coach

trains all across the network. What

0:06:460:06:50

I do apologise or is we were not

able to avoid the extraordinarily

0:06:500:06:55

ill judged actions by the trade

unions, who caused massive trouble

0:06:550:07:01

for passengers.

The report does say

reliability on the services is

0:07:010:07:05

improving and it wants the

Government to learn lessons when it

0:07:050:07:09

sets up other franchises.

0:07:090:07:12

Police have released CCTV images

of two men they're hunting

0:07:120:07:16

in connection with an attack

on a shop worker in Mill Hill.

0:07:160:07:21

A 16-year-old boy appeared in court

today charged with murder.

0:07:210:07:23

Marc Ashdown reports.

0:07:230:07:28

He came to London from India ten

years ago and made it his home. BJ

0:07:280:07:33

Patel, here relaxing with his wife,

was a hard-working shopkeeper, but

0:07:330:07:38

pillar of his community. On

Saturday, he was brutally attacked

0:07:380:07:42

and died in hospital a few days

later. Detectives relieved these

0:07:420:07:47

images of people they want to

question in relation to the

0:07:470:07:50

incident. Mr Patel was the main

breadwinner for his family, both

0:07:500:07:56

here and back in India. They have

been left devastated by his loss.

It

0:07:560:08:04

is injustice. Check great man to

leave this world in such a way. It

0:08:040:08:07

is not right. He is an inspiration

for all of us. He guides us every

0:08:070:08:16

time. He is like the best person in

the world.

Floral tributes pile-up

0:08:160:08:29

outside the shop in Mill Hill

Broadway. The community here has

0:08:290:08:34

been left stunned. Members of the

local Jewish community have set up a

0:08:340:08:39

fundraising page to try to help the

family of Vijay Patel. There are

0:08:390:08:45

hoping to raise £1000. Now 600

people have donated, raising

0:08:450:08:50

£16,000. Security is crucial.

All

businesses and their employees are

0:08:500:08:58

very vulnerable, particularly late

at night. If we can share

0:08:580:09:03

information and support businesses

by providing more CCTV in local

0:09:030:09:06

areas we can make them more fun for

businesses have that sense of

0:09:060:09:10

safety. When that a 16-year-old boy

from Brent has been charged with

0:09:100:09:15

murder. He appeared at Willesden

Magistrates' Court this morning.

0:09:150:09:20

Before he died, this picture was

released of him in hospital. He was

0:09:200:09:25

much loved and will be sorely

missed.

0:09:250:09:29

Turning now to the musicians,

who took their campaign to protect

0:09:290:09:31

London's music venues,

to Parliament toady.

0:09:310:09:33

Billy Bragg and Sandie

Shaw were among them.

0:09:330:09:35

Many of the capital's famous

clubs and pubs have been

0:09:350:09:37

threatened with closure,

sometimes because of

0:09:370:09:38

complaints from residents

in new housing developments.

0:09:380:09:40

With the story, here's our political

editor, Tim Donovan.

0:09:400:09:48

Billy Bragg says it was where

he tried things out,

0:09:480:09:51

made mistakes, learned lessons.

0:09:510:09:54

We need a bit more vocals, mate.

0:09:540:09:57

It was in a pub close

to the Blackwall Tunnel,

0:09:570:09:59

like so many other venues long gone.

0:09:590:10:02

Live venues are absolutely crucial

for young people to find out

0:10:020:10:05

whether they can make a living

through their own creativity.

0:10:050:10:13

It is why he and other veterans of

the business were at a photocall in

0:10:130:10:19

Parliament today, calling on

developers to build new homes which

0:10:190:10:23

did not threaten live music.

People

want homes. The developer moves in

0:10:230:10:29

next to a live music venue and build

some flats. People complain about

0:10:290:10:34

the noise and the live music venue

had to shut down.

I understand they

0:10:340:10:39

want to build more houses for people

make lots of money for themselves.

0:10:390:10:43

They should be paying for anything

that actually upsets the community.

0:10:430:10:49

In one of the most high-profile

recent cases, the Ministry of Sound

0:10:490:10:53

nightclub bought off closure when

you flats started to go up in

0:10:530:10:57

elephant and Castle. The deal was

struck in showing the homes had

0:10:570:11:02

extra soundproofing and acoustic

protection. That should be

0:11:020:11:06

obligatory for the developers, says

this MP.

The developers, who are, as

0:11:060:11:12

I describe it, the agent of change.

When they put in a planning

0:11:120:11:17

application may have to take the

necessary measures to make sure the

0:11:170:11:21

venue will not conflict with the new

residence.

The years passed but some

0:11:210:11:28

are still challenging the system.

There was a message for politicians

0:11:280:11:36

in there.

Just bear in mind how

important it is. As I understand it,

0:11:360:11:44

British music is one of our leading

exports and they must get behind and

0:11:440:11:48

support us.

It is not clear whether

that support will be forthcoming

0:11:480:11:53

from the Government. Plans to merge

three NHS trusts have been approved,

0:11:530:12:07

creating one of the largest NHS

trusts in the country. The move was

0:12:070:12:12

agreed earlier this afternoon. It

means the new trust will serve a

0:12:120:12:17

population of over a million people.

It could lead to the loss of some

0:12:170:12:21

services.

0:12:210:12:24

A new study looking at a certain

type of air pollution has found that

0:12:240:12:27

three-quarters of the country's most

polluted post codes are in London.

0:12:270:12:30

Diesel engines are a key source

of nitrogen dioxide gas,

0:12:300:12:32

which has been linked

to respiratory disease.

0:12:320:12:34

Campaigners say safe

limits are regularly

0:12:340:12:35

breached in the capital.

0:12:350:12:37

The new data has named

Hyde Park Corner and Marylebone Road

0:12:370:12:40

as Britain's worst locations.

0:12:400:12:43

If you want to check how

polluted your street is,

0:12:430:12:45

you can go to the science page

of the BBC News website.

0:12:450:12:48

There's an article which lets you

use your post code to get a rating -

0:12:480:12:52

and some tips on how

to avoid pollution.

0:12:520:12:58

Still to come this

Wednesday evening...

0:12:580:13:05

Newspapers on a red carpet. That is

because there is a premiere tonight

0:13:050:13:12

because of the number of Oscar

winners who will be walking down

0:13:120:13:15

this carpet. Join me later to find

out more.

0:13:150:13:25

A Holocaust survivor who was sent to

Auschwitz when she was 14 years old

0:13:250:13:29

has been sharing her story with the

young generation. She spent time at

0:13:290:13:38

passers-by at Liverpool Street

station. An 87-year-old woman is

0:13:380:13:45

hoping to have a chat with

passers-by. She's set up so far in

0:13:450:13:49

Liverpool Street and has encouraged

people to stop and listen to her

0:13:490:13:55

story.

They put us in ghettos and

from there they took us to the camp,

0:13:550:14:02

to Auschwitz.

Lily Ebert is a

Holocaust survivor.

How much do you

0:14:020:14:08

know about the Holocaust?

We were

not taught at school but I educated

0:14:080:14:13

myself.

In times where there is

rising racism and anti-Semitism, her

0:14:130:14:21

message is that we must live

together. That is a powerful

0:14:210:14:24

message.

It was heart-warming that

she was saying we are the same. It

0:14:240:14:34

does not seem we are together,

united, and are the same.

The final

0:14:340:14:39

photo of Lily and her siblings in

Hungary. The family were sent to

0:14:390:14:44

Auschwitz. She and her two sisters

were forced into Labour but the rest

0:14:440:14:54

of her family were sent to the gas

chambers. Does it upset you when

0:14:540:15:01

people say they face stigma and

racism, that it still goes on today?

0:15:010:15:06

Yes. They should know. The truth is

because -- it does not mean someone

0:15:060:15:22

is better or worse than you are.

They are only different.

This statue

0:15:220:15:27

is a reminder of the and accompanied

children who arrived at this train

0:15:270:15:31

station when they fled persecution

in their home towns in Germany,

0:15:310:15:38

Czechoslovakia and Austria. After

World War II very few were able to

0:15:380:15:41

be reunited by their families --

with their families. Lilly shares

0:15:410:15:48

her story with today's is in and

hopes the murder of 6 million dues

0:15:480:15:52

is never forgotten or misunderstood.

0:15:520:15:57

He was never shy of causing

controversy during his days

0:15:570:16:00

at Stamford Bridge.

0:16:000:16:01

Now the former Chelsea

boss Jose Mourinho

0:16:010:16:03

has been trading insults with this

successor, Antonio Conte.

0:16:030:16:07

Well, tonight, Chelsea meet

Arsenal in the first leg

0:16:070:16:09

of their League Cup semifinal.

0:16:090:16:12

We can join our sports

reporter, Chris Slegg.

0:16:120:16:14

Sounds quite personal?

0:16:140:16:22

It has got really quite personal.

Jose Mourinho isn't even involved

0:16:220:16:27

with this match. He is now the

Manchester United manager. But he

0:16:270:16:33

has rather dominated the build-up.

Let's remind ourselves of how these

0:16:330:16:37

words have escalated. It was a week

ago that Mourinho was asked why he

0:16:370:16:42

doesn't seem to be as passionate at

Manchester United as he was in his

0:16:420:16:46

Chelsea days. He questioned back

saying that, because I don't behave

0:16:460:16:50

as a clown on the touchline, it

means I have lost my passion? Many

0:16:500:16:55

journalists took that word clown to

be a reference to Antonio Conte.

0:16:550:16:59

Asked about that, he replied saying

maybe he was talking about himself

0:16:590:17:03

in the past. Sometimes I think there

is a demenza senile, he said in his

0:17:030:17:14

native Italian. Asked about that

Ahmed, Mourinho said, what never

0:17:140:17:20

happened to me and will never happen

to me is to be suspended for match

0:17:200:17:23

fixing. Conte didn't get suspended

but he did get a four-month

0:17:230:17:28

suspension for failing to report

match fixing when he was manager in

0:17:280:17:32

Italy. Conte's response, in the past

Mourinho was a little man, he is a

0:17:320:17:41

little man in the present and for

sure he will be a little man in the

0:17:410:17:44

future. So it has really escalated

throughout the last week, and

0:17:440:17:50

yesterday in his press conference,

Conte was asked whether the League

0:17:500:17:53

Managers Association should come in

to mediate between the two men, and

0:17:530:17:56

this was his response.

0:17:560:17:58

I think we both said

things and we'll see

0:17:580:18:00

what happens in the future.

0:18:010:18:02

I think that he said serious words,

using serious words, and...

0:18:020:18:05

I won't forget this.

0:18:050:18:10

But this is not

a problem from the club.

0:18:100:18:15

It's a problem between me and him.

0:18:150:18:24

As we said, quite personal. Conte

has also criticised Arsenal manager

0:18:240:18:27

Arsene Wenger.

Yeah, he's got his

adversary tonight an old coach. That

0:18:270:18:34

was in response to being asked about

Arsene Wenger's criticism of a

0:18:340:18:41

refereeing decision last week when

these teams met in the league.

0:18:410:18:45

Arsene Wenger laughed that off in

his press conference yesterday,

0:18:450:18:49

saying, I am an old but so is

Antonio Conte. If we get as much

0:18:490:18:55

drama on the pitch tonight as we

have had off it, it should be pretty

0:18:550:18:59

exciting. This is just the first leg

and they will meet again in the

0:18:590:19:04

second leg at the Emirates in a

fortnight. The winner will play

0:19:040:19:08

Manchester City or Bristol city in

the final at Wembley on February 25.

0:19:080:19:13

It's a special year

for St Pancras International,

0:19:130:19:15

as it marks 150 years.

0:19:150:19:16

During that time, the station

has gone through near

0:19:160:19:18

demolition and restoration.

0:19:180:19:20

Today, as part of its anniversary

celebrations, commuters were treated

0:19:200:19:22

to a trip down memory lane.

0:19:220:19:26

Jim Wheble has more.

0:19:260:19:28

Marching to work -

on the phone, making a call,

0:19:300:19:33

often we just pass through stations

totally oblivious to their past.

0:19:330:19:40

That was more difficult

today at St Pancras,

0:19:400:19:43

with a Victorian horse and cart

parked outside, which would have

0:19:430:19:46

transported the product that

basically inspired the building

0:19:460:19:49

of the station.

0:19:490:19:52

At that time, goods and trade

were much more important

0:19:520:19:54

than passenger traffic,

and a key part of that goods

0:19:540:19:57

business was beer from Burton,

from the Midlands, so the ground

0:19:570:20:01

level of the station,

so now you can go down

0:20:010:20:03

and walk through it,

that was solely for the storage

0:20:030:20:06

of beer from Burton.

0:20:060:20:08

It revolutionised beer

drinking in the capital,

0:20:080:20:10

bringing bitter for the first time

to London pubs more familiar

0:20:100:20:14

with a good glass of stout.

0:20:140:20:17

But it wasn't the only thing

that was revolutionary

0:20:170:20:20

about this station.

0:20:200:20:21

This roof was really a wonder

of the time, wasn't it?

0:20:210:20:24

Absolutely.

0:20:240:20:25

When the station opened,

this was the largest single-span

0:20:250:20:27

roof in the world.

0:20:270:20:28

It's 700 foot long, 250 foot

wide and 100 foot high.

0:20:280:20:32

Perhaps if you see an old film

from the '30s or '40s

0:20:320:20:35

with Grand Central Station

in New York, you might

0:20:350:20:37

have seen this.

0:20:380:20:39

You could quite likely do,

because the original Grand Central

0:20:390:20:41

used the design of St Pancras.

0:20:410:20:44

Look around here, it's

completely splendid,

0:20:440:20:47

St Pancras Station -

but, back in the '60s, it was seen

0:20:470:20:50

by some as redundant,

and there were growing calls

0:20:500:20:52

at the time for this place

to be demolished.

0:20:520:20:56

It wasn't for this man,

Sir John Betjeman, one-time poet

0:20:560:20:59

laureate, who mounted a successful

campaign to stop it, perhaps this

0:20:590:21:05

place wouldn't be here right now.

0:21:050:21:07

Now, of course, it's not

just an international

0:21:070:21:09

terminal but a place to shop

and be spontaneously entertained.

0:21:090:21:15

The piano has been so incredibly

successful, hasn't it?

0:21:150:21:18

They have.

0:21:180:21:19

It's captured people's imagination.

0:21:190:21:20

It really has, and we

introduced them in 2012,

0:21:200:21:23

and they have been so popular.

0:21:230:21:26

People absolutely love to see people

play, to hear people play.

0:21:260:21:32

Even the likes of Elton John

have been seen tinkling

0:21:340:21:36

on the St Pancras ivories.

0:21:360:21:39

And, to celebrate all of this,

a special anniversary beer.

0:21:390:21:43

Maybe not in wooden

barrels, but you can't

0:21:430:21:47

always have everything.

0:21:470:21:50

Some of Hollywood's biggest names

are in London tonight

0:21:530:21:57

for the UK premiere of The Post,

starring Meryl Streep and Tom

0:21:570:22:01

Hanks and directed

by Steven Spielberg.

0:22:010:22:03

It's based on the true story

of a battle between journalists

0:22:030:22:07

and the US government

in the early '70s over papers

0:22:070:22:09

regarding the Vietman War.

0:22:090:22:10

Asad Ahmad is in

Leicester Square now.

0:22:100:22:16

I've never been on a red carpet like

this before. We've got quadruple

0:22:200:22:24

Oscar-winning Steven Spielberg on

the carpet, double Oscar winner Tom

0:22:240:22:29

Hanks is there, and I'm joined by

triple Oscar winner Meryl Streep.

0:22:290:22:33

Thank you for joining us for your

first UK interview about the film.

0:22:330:22:36

Tell us about the timing of this

film. We get a lot coming out of

0:22:360:22:42

Washington about fake news. It's

like this film is pushing back a bit

0:22:420:22:46

and saying, the importance of good,

honest journalism is important to

0:22:460:22:50

holding the law and government to

account.

Absolutely, the first

0:22:500:22:57

Amendment was enshrined as the first

Amendment in our Constitution

0:22:570:23:00

protecting free speech and the

freedom of the press. We rely on the

0:23:000:23:04

press to give us the truth and, by

undermining the institutions that

0:23:040:23:08

deliver the truth, themselves,

hard-working, underpaid

0:23:080:23:16

journalists...

I know all about

that! You play a really strong woman

0:23:160:23:21

in this film, a strong woman back in

the early 70s who is the first

0:23:210:23:26

female publisher, who really stands

her ground, very much in a man's

0:23:260:23:29

world. When you were playing that

role, did it surprise you how much

0:23:290:23:34

things haven't changed in nearly 40

years, or how much things have

0:23:340:23:37

changed?

I've lived through that

time. I was graduating from college

0:23:370:23:44

when the Pentagon papers emerged.

And I remember when there were no

0:23:440:23:50

women in business, in corporate

suites. There were very few women

0:23:500:23:54

lawyers, very few women doctors. It

was highly unusual. This woman

0:23:540:23:58

sought was the fulcrum of a pivotal

moment in history, when women emerge

0:23:580:24:04

and all of these opportunities, from

which I've benefited, changed. So,

0:24:040:24:13

yes, she broke ground for many, many

women, first head of a Fortune 500

0:24:130:24:20

country, and she proved, even in the

face of her own insecurities, that

0:24:200:24:23

women can do it.

Meryl Streep

talking to asset Ahmed.

0:24:230:24:29

Let's get a check

on the weather now.

0:24:290:24:31

And Philip Avery has joined us.

0:24:310:24:31

And Philip Avery has joined us.

0:24:310:24:32

Not the most enthralling picture,

but the weather hasn't been that

0:24:360:24:38

enthralling of late. Yesterday was

dreadful, not a speck of sunshine,

0:24:380:24:43

but we did today in some spots. Once

a weather front made its way all too

0:24:430:24:49

slowly for some towards the east,

that allowed much of central and

0:24:490:24:52

western parts of our area to buck

up. I have heard good things about

0:24:520:24:56

the weather in Kent, no great

surprise, when you see that front

0:24:560:25:00

appears to be more of an issue for

the north and east of the region.

0:25:000:25:03

That has a bearing on what we are

expecting tonight and injured in a

0:25:030:25:07

row, towards the north and east we

have the remnants from that front,

0:25:070:25:12

which will produce some rain.

Further west and south-west, this is

0:25:120:25:16

where the skies could stay clear and

we could end up with a foggy start

0:25:160:25:19

the day on Thursday. Bear that in

mind, if you are running up the M40,

0:25:190:25:25

over the Chilterns, you could be in

for a fair amount of fog. Towards

0:25:250:25:29

the east, that is where we have the

greatest chance of the odd spot of

0:25:290:25:33

rain for what essentially will be a

rather dank day. Quite cloudy, and

0:25:330:25:37

that prospect continues on into

Thursday evening and overnight

0:25:370:25:41

through into the first part of

Friday as well. A lot of clout

0:25:410:25:45

around, still the odd spot of rain,

and that cloud sitting quite low in

0:25:450:25:50

the atmosphere, so there will be

some hill fog around than the

0:25:500:25:54

radiation fog for two nights out

west. Friday, yes, the odd passing

0:25:540:25:58

glimpse of the sun but, if you work

on the basis the next few days will

0:25:580:26:02

be cloudy with a prospect of fog and

the odd spot of rain coming through

0:26:020:26:07

where the cloud is the curb, will

not go far wrong. Just in time for

0:26:070:26:12

the weekend, that looks like doom

and gloom, but that weather front is

0:26:120:26:16

slowly working its way to the

western side of the British Isles,

0:26:160:26:19

so the weekend starts on a cloudy

note, but not too cold. There you

0:26:190:26:23

go.

0:26:230:26:24

where we mark 155 years

since the first

Underground line opened.

0:26:360:26:37

But that's it for now.

0:26:370:26:38

More from us at 10:30pm.

0:26:380:26:39

Do have a lovely evening.
