easterly. Wrap up warmly if you do

have to go out.

Tonight on BBC London News:

0:00:040:00:06

Fears over the fight

against breast cancer,

0:00:060:00:07

as early detection rates

in the capital are some

0:00:070:00:09

of the lowest in the country.

0:00:090:00:11

This could save your life.

0:00:110:00:15

Going for screening means

that you can catch the cancer

0:00:150:00:17

well before you can feel a lump.

0:00:170:00:19

My mum couldn't feel

anything at all, and

0:00:210:00:22

she was religious about checking.

0:00:220:00:23

So if she hadn't gone for the scan,

it would have been too late.

0:00:230:00:26

Also tonight - two people have died

after a fire in a flat

0:00:260:00:29

above a shop in Kingston.

0:00:290:00:31

Snow disruption and delays

on parts of the rail network.

0:00:310:00:33

Were train operators right

to cancel some services?

0:00:330:00:41

Plus, your pictures

of how a blizzard turned

0:00:410:00:43

some of the capital

into a winter wonderland.

0:00:430:00:50

Furbies as you've never

seen them before.

0:00:500:00:52

We meet the man behind the musical

creation that's gone viral.

0:00:520:00:56

A very good evening

and welcome to the programme.

0:01:070:01:10

First tonight - fears over

the diagnosis and treatment

0:01:100:01:13

of breast cancer here

in the capital.

0:01:130:01:18

We know, the earlier

the disease is detected,

0:01:180:01:19

the higher the chances

of successful treatment.

0:01:190:01:21

But according to a major new report,

women in greater London

0:01:210:01:24

are the least likely to be screened

0:01:240:01:26

and early detection rates

lag behind other regions.

0:01:260:01:27

Tolu Adeoye has the details.

0:01:270:01:33

Yes, Riz.

0:01:330:01:35

The figures are stark -

0:01:350:01:37

every year, around 11,500 women

die from breast cancer.

0:01:370:01:40

That's nearly 1000

deaths each month.

0:01:400:01:42

And this is concerning in London,

because here the attendance rate

0:01:420:01:46

at screenings was the lowest

in England last year.

0:01:460:01:49

Just 64% of women who were

invited to a screening

0:01:490:01:52

attended within six months.

0:01:520:01:53

And that falls well short

of the national target of 70%.

0:01:530:01:56

I've been speaking to one woman

who says screening has saved

0:01:560:01:59

the lives of several members

of her family.

0:01:590:02:07

So my mum has had breast cancer, my

aunt, I have add, 12 members of the

0:02:070:02:15

family have all had breast cancer.

Her family knows more than most how

0:02:150:02:20

important detecting cancer can be.

She found a lump while checking her

0:02:200:02:23

own breasts, but she says her mother

was saved by screening.

She went to

0:02:230:02:29

her first possible screening

appointment, slightly younger than

0:02:290:02:31

the normal age, 49 rather than 50,

but her turn came up, so she went.

0:02:310:02:36

She had three tumours, and they

wouldn't have been felt on

0:02:360:02:41

self-examination, so it was

important she went for screening, if

0:02:410:02:44

she thought she was too busy, which

she nearly did, it might have been

0:02:440:02:48

too late.

Greening is offered to

women between 50 and 70 years old.

0:02:480:02:54

-- screening. The vast majority of

women survive for five years after

0:02:540:03:03

screening, but many do not go, why?

We know women in London are busy and

0:03:030:03:07

it can be difficult to attend, and

women are more transient in London,

0:03:070:03:11

they move house more regularly, and

if they are registering with a GP,

0:03:110:03:16

their screening invitation may be

delayed. And we know that London has

0:03:160:03:20

higher rates of BME women, and I are

cultural sensitivities about talking

0:03:200:03:25

about breast screening, breast

cancer, and that can make it more

0:03:250:03:30

difficult for women to attend.

There

is some good news - although below

0:03:300:03:34

the national average overall, more

women are taking up screening than

0:03:340:03:37

ever before. Tower Hamlets had one

of the lowest rates across the

0:03:370:03:41

country, but following a number of

interventions that has been

0:03:410:03:45

significant improvement. They

include offering people second

0:03:450:03:48

appointments if they don't respond

to the first invitation, calling

0:03:480:03:52

people before an appointment, and

going out into the community to

0:03:520:03:55

remind people how important it is to

go for screenings. NHS England says

0:03:550:03:59

it is helping local areas to improve

the consistency of service for

0:03:590:04:03

patients across the country. This

woman says awareness is vital.

It is

0:04:030:04:09

so important to talk about it so

other people are conscious of it,

0:04:090:04:12

they know to check themselves and go

for it so they can be diagnosed

0:04:120:04:16

earlier.

0:04:160:04:17

Two men have died after a fire

in Tolworth in southwest London.

0:04:170:04:19

Five others were taken to hospital

for smoke inhalation.

0:04:190:04:22

The cause of the blaze

is not yet known.

0:04:220:04:24

Yvonne Hall has more.

0:04:240:04:31

The burned-out remains of the

building where two men lost their

0:04:310:04:35

lives this morning. Fire broke out

in a flat above a wine and food

0:04:350:04:40

store in Tolworth near Kingston just

before 5am. A loft conversion next

0:04:400:04:44

door also caught fire. Other homes

nearby had to be evacuated. It took

0:04:440:04:50

50 firefighters nearly three hours

to get the blaze under control. The

0:04:500:04:54

area has been called and off all day

with work now under way to make the

0:04:540:04:58

damaged building safe. -- cordoned

off. These officers are still tried

0:04:580:05:03

to contact all the relatives of the

men who died here before releasing

0:05:030:05:07

their identities. -- police

officers. Five people who live in

0:05:070:05:11

the flat survived but were taken to

hospital suffering from the effects

0:05:110:05:15

of breathing in smoke. They have

since been released. Meanwhile,

0:05:150:05:19

police and fire investigations are

under way to find exactly how this

0:05:190:05:22

blaze started. Yvonne Hall, BBC

London News, Tolworth, near

0:05:220:05:29

Kingston.

0:05:290:05:31

A father of four from South London

who posted homemade videos

0:05:310:05:35

on the internet glorifying

the Islamic State group has been

0:05:350:05:38

jailed for three years.

0:05:380:05:38

50-year-old Gary Staples

from South Norwood loaded up clips

0:05:380:05:40

showing armed IS fighters

and Osama Bin Laden.

0:05:400:05:42

He was found guilty of seven counts

of encouraging terrorism and one

0:05:420:05:45

count of disseminating a terrorist

publication last month.

0:05:450:05:49

Coming up later in the programme:

0:05:490:05:52

The artefacts that reveal more

about the cultural history

0:05:520:05:54

of some of the capital's

diverse communities.

0:05:540:06:00

The wintry conditions have caused

some serious disruption

0:06:070:06:08

in some parts of the capital,

0:06:080:06:10

with rail services

in the east the worst hit.

0:06:100:06:13

More on that in a moment.

0:06:130:06:16

Even central London

saw a five-minute flurry,

0:06:160:06:19

which delighted many

who captured it on camera.

0:06:190:06:21

Here are just some of the pictures

you've been sending in.

0:06:210:06:27

MUSIC PLAYS

0:06:270:06:33

There is no where I come from.

Quite

exciting, quite enjoyable.

I have

0:06:540:07:00

been in London since last year, and

it is the first time I have seen

0:07:000:07:04

this much snow.

I am from Spain, it

doesn't snow much there either, so I

0:07:040:07:10

am excited for the snow.

0:07:100:07:12

So looking lovely.

0:07:490:07:51

If you weren't trying to travel

on parts of the transport network.

0:07:510:07:54

There was disruption, although not

as much as was expected.

0:07:540:07:57

Stations in Essex and Kent did see

delays and cancellations,

0:07:570:07:59

as our transport correspondent

Tom Edwards reports.

0:07:590:08:04

This time-lapse footage from a tower

block shows a snow storm

0:08:040:08:06

engulfing the Greenwich Peninsula.

0:08:060:08:09

Blizzards and snow showers came

and went throughout the day

0:08:090:08:12

in London and the Home Counties.

0:08:120:08:14

Sometimes it was localised,

sometimes thick.

0:08:140:08:17

It meant central London looked more

like Moscow at times.

0:08:170:08:23

And out in Essex, commuters

this morning faced cancellations

0:08:230:08:27

and delays on the trains.

0:08:270:08:29

It's a bit of a worry that it's

going to be cancelled last minute

0:08:290:08:35

when you've already got here,

especially because I planned

0:08:350:08:37

this for like a month.

0:08:370:08:38

They're doing all they can.

0:08:380:08:39

The main trains going

through are working,

0:08:390:08:41

it's just the little stations that

are struggling at the moment.

0:08:410:08:44

This evening, I think

it's going to be

0:08:440:08:45

quite difficult getting back,

so I don't know.

0:08:450:08:47

I think a lot of people

who are working in London are

0:08:470:08:50

probably going to really struggle.

0:08:500:08:51

An amended timetable

was brought in by Network Rail

0:08:510:08:54

and the train companies.

0:08:540:08:56

They thinned out services.

0:08:560:08:57

It meant they could

use more of these.

0:08:570:09:01

I think we were right

to make contingency plans,

0:09:010:09:03

and also to warn customers

what they were going to be,

0:09:030:09:08

and what the levels

of service were going to be.

0:09:080:09:13

I also think we were quite

right now,

0:09:130:09:15

when the weather hasn't proved

as bad as it was predicted,

0:09:150:09:18

to start reinstating services.

0:09:180:09:20

At some stations like Chelmsford,

it took over an hour

0:09:200:09:22

to get on a train as they were full.

0:09:220:09:24

And the overground and TfL

rail also suffered.

0:09:240:09:28

On the roads, ice did mean some

tricky driving conditions in places,

0:09:280:09:31

and longer journeys.

0:09:310:09:34

The M20 was just gridlocked.

0:09:340:09:36

We tried to go some backstreets,

and basically it was just even

0:09:360:09:39

worse, so we had to turn around

and come back due to the weather.

0:09:390:09:42

We'll just have to see

what the weather's like when we get

0:09:420:09:45

a bit further east, so...

0:09:450:09:48

hopefully, we'll make it on time.

0:09:480:09:51

Most transport in the capital hasn't

been badly affected yet,

0:09:510:09:54

although there will still be

apprehension from commuters about

0:09:540:09:56

what lies ahead later this week.

0:09:560:10:02

Well, let's pick up with Tom

at Victoria Station.

0:10:020:10:06

What's the latest?

0:10:060:10:16

Very busy here, actually, at

Victoria Station, big crowds

0:10:160:10:19

gathering, and a lot of delays and

cancellations. You might, for

0:10:190:10:23

example, be able to make out the

train to Orpington cancelled,

0:10:230:10:28

Ramsgate also cancelled, lots of

people standing around, waiting to

0:10:280:10:32

find out when next train home is

going to be. As for the restrictions

0:10:320:10:36

brought in by Network Rail, there

has been a little bit of criticism

0:10:360:10:39

of those behind-the-scenes. The

phrase as I have heard, overkill,

0:10:390:10:45

too draconian, way over the top.

Network Rail, though, they are a bit

0:10:450:10:50

dammed if they do, dammed if they

don't. They said to me, we are not

0:10:500:10:56

weather experts, our information

comes from the Met Office. There is,

0:10:560:10:59

though, a little bit of good news

for commuters - those restrictions

0:10:590:11:04

out into East Anglia, denied they

have been lifted, and TfL Rail and

0:11:040:11:09

the overground are getting a little

bit back to normal. The big question

0:11:090:11:12

now is how long that is going to

last. Riz.

0:11:120:11:17

OK, thank you very much indeed. We

heard that they are not weather

0:11:170:11:22

experts, but Nick Miller is, thanks

for joining us again. Variations,

0:11:220:11:28

really, is what we seen, hard to

predict, puts a lot of pressure on

0:11:280:11:32

guys.

That is the case with snow showers,

0:11:320:11:36

and that has been the forecast over

the last couple of days, some areas

0:11:360:11:39

have add snow shower after snow

shower, particularly in the east of

0:11:390:11:43

London, where as others have had a

dusting, that brief snow shower in

0:11:430:11:49

London, maybe one centimetre out of

that. That is what the weather said

0:11:490:11:52

is delivering at that moment, that

big variety continuing with further

0:11:520:11:55

snow showers. -- we are looking at

Thursday and Friday for an area of

0:11:550:12:02

snow, some doubt about how much we

will see on Thursday, but likely to

0:12:020:12:06

get some snow on Friday, a longer

period of snow. How heavy? That is

0:12:060:12:11

open to debate, we will keep across

that, but the transition from

0:12:110:12:14

showers, hit and miss Komla more of

us seeing a longer period of snow

0:12:140:12:18

later in the week.

And a detailed

forecast later, thank you.

0:12:180:12:25

Wormwood Scrubs is again

under the spotlight,

0:12:250:12:27

just months after a damning report

into conditions there.

0:12:270:12:29

Now, the family of a 46-year-old

prisoner who recently killed himself

0:12:290:12:32

there believe he was let down

by the prison management.

0:12:320:12:34

Marc Ashdown reports.

0:12:340:12:39

Four weeks ago, an inmate

at Wormwood Scrubs

0:12:390:12:40

was stabbed to death.

0:12:400:12:42

Outside, we spoke to

worried relatives of other

0:12:420:12:44

prisoners at visiting time.

0:12:440:12:47

I'm terrified what's

going to happen next.

0:12:470:12:51

Whoever's been visiting today,

they are all really shocked.

0:12:510:12:55

This is Sarah today.

0:12:550:12:57

Tragically her partner died

at the prison on Friday.

0:12:570:12:58

He took his own life.

0:12:580:13:00

She believes the authorities

let him down.

0:13:000:13:03

They could have done more, yes,

cos I was concerned and they said

0:13:030:13:06

to me that they would monitor him

every day, and I don't

0:13:060:13:09

think that was true.

0:13:090:13:10

So, he was on hunger strike?

Yes.

0:13:100:13:12

And I don't think that was true,

that he was getting monitored.

0:13:120:13:17

Her partner was jailed

after he became abusive

0:13:170:13:20

at a betting shop last year.

0:13:200:13:23

After a short sentence,

he was due to be deported

0:13:230:13:25

to his native Sri Lanka.

0:13:250:13:26

He had been refusing to eat.

0:13:260:13:30

The Prison Service has

offered its sincere condolences

0:13:300:13:33

and says a full independent

investigation will be carried out.

0:13:330:13:39

No more prison deaths!

0:13:390:13:42

Protesters outside Wormwood Scrubs

earlier this month again raised

0:13:420:13:44

concerns about conditions inside.

0:13:450:13:52

Repeated inspections have

flagged staff shortages

0:13:520:13:53

and high levels of violence.

0:13:530:13:54

Families just want to know

prisoners are safe.

0:13:540:13:56

London prisons take

people from local courts,

0:13:560:13:58

and there is a churn of people

coming in and out,

0:13:580:14:00

so people will come in on remand

or for short periods of time,

0:14:000:14:04

or until they are transferred

to a longer term prison.

0:14:040:14:06

So there are people coming

and going every day in huge numbers.

0:14:060:14:09

That puts a great strain

on the prison because the staff

0:14:090:14:12

They are awash with drugs, vermin,

they are overcrowded, filthy,

0:14:120:14:15

under resourced, understaffed.

0:14:150:14:18

They are not safe.

0:14:180:14:22

My partner was a loving

person, and...

0:14:220:14:26

I loved him too much,

and he shouldn't have...

0:14:260:14:32

He shouldn't, he shouldn't.

0:14:320:14:36

I just...

0:14:360:14:38

I just wish he was

with me, that's all.

0:14:380:14:40

Mark Ashdown, BBC London News.

0:14:400:14:47

called

0:14:470:14:47

Still to come before seven:

0:14:470:14:54

making music the Furby way. We meet

the East Londoner who has created an

0:14:540:15:02

internet hit with the 90s toy.

0:15:020:15:07

We've heard about the great

things that becoming

0:15:070:15:08

the European City of Culture has

done for places like

0:15:080:15:11

Hull and Liverpool.

0:15:110:15:12

So, could the same happen

here for London with a new London

0:15:120:15:15

borough of culture award.

0:15:150:15:19

Up for grabs more than a million

pounds to the winning borough.

0:15:190:15:23

But as Ena Miller reports -

why announce just one winner -

0:15:230:15:27

when you could have two?

0:15:270:15:31

The London Mayor's call for action.

What Boro couldst... Could prove

0:15:310:15:39

that they deserve the title of

Borough capital of culture and win

0:15:390:15:44

the £1 million? The entries came

flooding in. 22 councils entered,

0:15:440:15:54

two winners for the next two years

were announced at the City Hall

0:15:540:15:58

today. Here is the first one.

The

winner of the London Borough of

0:15:580:16:04

culture 2020 ghosted...

LAUGHTER

0:16:040:16:12

It is Brent.

Our bid has been about

young people and raising aspirations

0:16:120:16:22

for them. Setting up that trust

whether young people will be at the

0:16:220:16:26

heart of it, leading from the front

is going to make sure that young

0:16:260:16:31

people become the next leaders Brent

and London.

What would you say to

0:16:310:16:35

those people who think the money

could be better spent somewhere

0:16:350:16:38

else?

Culture and arts is who we

are. We want young people to be

0:16:380:16:42

doing constructive and useful things

rather than being led astray and

0:16:420:16:46

giving criminal acts, so it is an

investment in young people, in

0:16:460:16:50

communities, but it also brings in

jobs and taxes to our city and

0:16:500:16:54

country.

The Mayor's job was only

done after he announced the winners

0:16:540:16:59

of 2019. And the celebrations

continued all the way to

0:16:590:17:04

Walthamstow.

0:17:040:17:14

I work with young people and the

general consensus is that the

0:17:140:17:17

authorities don't really care, but I

think this is the perfect way and

0:17:170:17:22

the perfect statement to show that,

yeah, we do care.

Leaving all the

0:17:220:17:27

celebrations behind us, we are

entering one of the spaces that will

0:17:270:17:30

benefit from the award. Now, the

council says the money will go

0:17:300:17:34

towards developing culture and will

also go towards protecting the jobs

0:17:340:17:38

that create it.

We need to give more

studio spaces, more office desks.

0:17:380:17:45

Each borough at dart-mac it seems a

challenge that every borough is up.

0:17:450:17:55

Emma Miller, BBC London News. Former

Arsenal striker Ian Wright says he

0:17:550:18:03

cannot make a case for us in Wenger

remaining as manager of Arsenal

0:18:030:18:08

beyond the end of this season. --

Arsene. Ian Wright said the club

0:18:080:18:22

should change managers as soon as

possible.

I want Arsenal to start

0:18:220:18:25

the challenge again and to sign

players that make people excited

0:18:250:18:29

again, I want somebody who will come

into the Arsenal board who will lay

0:18:290:18:34

down the law to people, and a new

manager, whoever that is going to

0:18:340:18:37

be, and the players who are now on

easy street literally. A few of them

0:18:370:18:42

own easy street and read out

properties on it. It will take

0:18:420:18:45

Arsenal a few years to get back into

that because remember, everybody is

0:18:450:18:50

progressing right now and moving

forward, all of them.

Ian Wright,

0:18:500:18:53

speaking there.

0:18:530:18:56

Next, continuing our look at how

different cultures in the capital

0:18:560:18:58

have influenced London.

0:18:580:18:59

It coincides with the BBC's

documentary series Civilisations

0:18:590:19:01

about significant works of art

and what it tells us

0:19:010:19:04

about the people who created them.

0:19:040:19:05

Tonight, Wendy Hurrell

reports on the connection

0:19:050:19:07

between an artefact

in the Wallace Collection and

0:19:070:19:09

the Indian community in Southall.

0:19:090:19:19

Some 300,000 people from the Indian

subcontinent live in the capital. In

0:19:230:19:30

Southall in west London, the colour,

spice and sound of their culture

0:19:300:19:35

makes snowy streets vibrant. Just up

the road in Hayes, traditional

0:19:350:19:43

Indian sweets are being whipped,

rolled and decorated.

When there is

0:19:430:19:47

the birth of a child, someone is

getting married or engaged,

0:19:470:19:52

graduation, any time, Indian sweets

are giving out just to celebrate

0:19:520:19:55

with us the joyous occasions.

They

are named after a word that derives

0:19:550:20:03

from the word for snow. This is a

dagger made early in the 1600s and

0:20:030:20:11

evidence points to it having been

owned by Prince Koran, who became

0:20:110:20:16

the Mogul emperor and commissioned

the Taj Mahal.

There are a number of

0:20:160:20:24

things in the Wallace collection

that are associated with famous

0:20:240:20:27

historical figures. There is a

portrait of the Prince in the

0:20:270:20:32

Victoria and Albert. He he's wearing

gold decorated with stones, and it

0:20:320:20:38

has a duck's head over the top. It

is a dagger of unprecedented

0:20:380:20:42

richness. It is set with something

like 2000 tiny pieces of Ruby,

0:20:420:20:52

emerald and diamond is. -- diamond.

It is a human masterpiece, and human

0:20:520:21:01

beings dug some rare materials out

of the ground and they made that.

0:21:010:21:05

Its presence here tells us about the

British Empire. Its combination of

0:21:050:21:10

Islamic and Hindu styles reveals the

secrets of the Muslim empire. Back

0:21:100:21:14

at the burgeoning sweet shop empire

in Southall, an opportunity for

0:21:140:21:21

cultural exchange.

Rocky road, Eton

mess... We will be adding more

0:21:210:21:29

flavours to match the continents.

0:21:290:21:35

And just to say the programme

Civilisations is on this Thursday

0:21:350:21:37

at nine o'clock on BBC Two.

0:21:370:21:38

The

0:21:380:21:39

0:21:420:21:51

Now, you may remember these toy

creatures from the late '90s.

0:21:510:21:53

But trust me - you've never seen

Furbies quite like this.

0:21:530:21:56

Because an East Londoner who prides

himself on turning junk into musical

0:21:560:21:59

instruments has made an organ out

of them, and it's

0:21:590:22:01

become an online hit.

0:22:010:22:06

So we sent our very own Furby,

Gareth Furby, to meet

0:22:060:22:09

the musical inventor.

0:22:090:22:11

We're inside a disused building

of the Mile End Road in East London

0:22:110:22:15

to meet a 27-year-old

called Sam Battle.

0:22:150:22:20

He's rapidly filling this room

with electronic inventions he's

0:22:200:22:22

built himself.

0:22:220:22:25

This is my lair where I make things.

0:22:250:22:31

Basically, I build this stuff.

0:22:310:22:32

They are musical instruments,

often made out of other

0:22:320:22:35

people's junk.

0:22:350:22:37

When I'm very lucky,

I find it on the streets.

0:22:370:22:39

I've never been shy

of diving into a skip when

0:22:390:22:42

I see one.

0:22:420:22:43

And we're not recommending

you do this at home,

0:22:430:22:46

but this is a skill Sam's taught

himself over the past six years.

0:22:460:22:49

I was quite bad

at physics at school,

0:22:490:22:51

not very good at science,

didn't get very good grades,

0:22:510:22:53

but I am just very practically

minded, so this just

0:22:530:22:56

kind of worked.

0:22:560:23:00

He's starting to make a bit

of a name for himself,

0:23:000:23:02

taking his inventions on tour,

so here are his top three.

0:23:020:23:11

In third place, the musical bike.

0:23:110:23:14

With a synthesiser

and a drum machine on

0:23:140:23:16

it.

0:23:160:23:20

In second place, the megadrone.

0:23:200:23:22

I call it a megadrone

because one pitch would

0:23:220:23:26

be a drone, but this

is

0:23:260:23:29

100 of them.

0:23:290:23:32

The point is to see

what it would sound like.

0:23:320:23:35

If it doesn't exist, build it.

0:23:350:23:41

But even that can't

compare to his newest and

0:23:410:23:43

most ambitious creation.

0:23:430:23:46

At number one...

0:23:460:23:48

This is a Furby organ.

0:23:480:23:52

It takes 45 Furbies.

0:23:520:23:56

I've found them in charity

shops, car-boot sales.

0:23:560:24:01

Each of the Furbies

are assigned a note,

0:24:010:24:04

and they are assigned a key to sing,

so they are singing in tune.

0:24:040:24:09

Of course, for someone

who shares the

0:24:090:24:12

name Furby, which has been traced

back to medieval Yorkshire but was

0:24:120:24:15

then adopted by a toy company,

this is all quite fascinating.

0:24:150:24:21

But even Sam admits

he may have created

0:24:210:24:22

something a little unpleasant.

0:24:220:24:25

I've made a monstrosity.

0:24:250:24:27

This is like Frankenstein's

evil monster.

0:24:270:24:32

What have I done?!

0:24:320:24:38

It's already a viral hit

on the internet, and soon

0:24:380:24:40

they'll be joining him on tour.

0:24:400:24:42

Gareth Furby, BBC London News.

0:24:420:24:50

that is quite something!

0:24:500:24:53

Time for a check on this bitterly

cold weather, and Nick's here.

0:24:530:24:55

It is about to get even colder out

and about tomorrow. Here is another

0:25:010:25:04

view of the snow shower that came

through this afternoon. We have

0:25:040:25:08

another warning out to be aware of

the potential for snow. Some places

0:25:080:25:15

will get nothing and others will

just get a few centimetres overnight

0:25:150:25:18

and into the morning. We expect the

heaviest showers to be well to the

0:25:180:25:21

East of us, running through parts of

Essex and Kent, running through

0:25:210:25:28

Surrey overnight and into the

morning. You could see a snow shower

0:25:280:25:31

just about anywhere. As we saw in

central London today, it doesn't

0:25:310:25:35

take long for that snow to

accumulate to a few centimetres.

0:25:350:25:39

Those are your overnight

temperatures, well below freezing,

0:25:390:25:42

so it will feel bitterly cold in the

morning. Check the situation before

0:25:420:25:45

you head out in case the snow

showers have had an impact during

0:25:450:25:49

the course of the night on the

travel situation near you. A few

0:25:490:25:52

more showers in the morning, but

through into the afternoon, it

0:25:520:25:56

becomes mainly dry, with a bit of

dry, sunny weather around. It does

0:25:560:26:01

nothing for the temperature. This

would be a chilly night at this time

0:26:010:26:04

of year. These are the daytime highs

tomorrow, so some not getting above

0:26:040:26:09

freezing. Factor in the wind, this

is quite breathtaking. This is what

0:26:090:26:13

it will feel like at times during

the day tomorrow. In two minus

0:26:130:26:19

double figures. Talking snow showers

at the moment, a quieter day to come

0:26:190:26:22

tomorrow, but then we are watching

this area of low pressure coming up

0:26:220:26:29

from Iberia and pushing a spell of

snow to southern parts of the UK. As

0:26:290:26:34

we go into Friday, we could see more

widespread snow pushing up across

0:26:340:26:38

our path of the world that may be

lasting some time. This is the

0:26:380:26:41

outlook as we go through the rest of

the week. Look how the temperatures

0:26:410:26:47

head up into the start of next week.

Bitterly cold now, but the end is in

0:26:470:26:51

sight.

0:26:510:26:52

The weather is one of our main

headlines than that. Snow has caused

0:26:550:26:59

major disruption in many areas

across the UK. Treacherous driving

0:26:590:27:03

conditions, train cancellations and

dozens of flight delays. Hundreds of

0:27:030:27:07

schools have been closed and there

could be worse weather to come

0:27:070:27:09

tomorrow.

The international trade Secretary

0:27:090:27:13

Liam Fox says any form of customs

union with the EU after Brexit would

0:27:130:27:17

be a complete sell-out for the UK.

A major report has found women in

0:27:170:27:24

Greater London are the least likely

to be screened for breast cancer.

0:27:240:27:28

London also lags behind other

regions when it comes to early

0:27:280:27:31

detection rates. More on the day's

stories on the website, and lots of

0:27:310:27:35

your snow pictures on our Facebook

page. Thanks for those. I'll be back

0:27:350:27:41

later during the Ten O'Clock News.

Thanks for watching and do have a

0:27:410:27:44

lovely evening. Goodbye.
