speaking about his ordeal. I told them two days ago,

:06:03.:06:05.

for the first time. And they were upset

:06:06.:06:10.

that I never told them. They said, whatever made you think

:06:11.:06:12.

we wouldn't believe you. But I just have this feeling,

:06:13.:06:16.

like this interview, are you sitting there thinking,

before we get there tonight, some storms across south-east England,

:06:44.:06:49.

Hertfordshire and Essex overnight before clear skies follow.
