the News of the World. That's all from the News at Six.

:00:00.:00:12.

Hello and welcome to Thursday's Look East. In the programme tonight:

:00:13.:00:16.

Students' lectures are disrupted as university and college staff walk

:00:17.:00:24.

out in a row over pay. People are leaving academia and

:00:25.:00:27.

going into Private distributors they cannot raise their families on this

:00:28.:00:31.

income. The nightly soup kitchen getting

:00:32.:00:34.

back on its feet despite a devastating break`in.

:00:35.:00:38.

Who let the water out? The mystery of the Grand Union Canal saboteur.

:00:39.:00:43.

And will Rachel's American Smooth be enough to keep her in Strictly?

:00:44.:00:57.

Good evening. It's been a day of strike action for

:00:58.:01:01.

universities and colleges across the region. Staff, from cleaners to

:01:02.:01:05.

tutors, have walked out in a bitter row over pay. It's affected

:01:06.:01:09.

students' tuition and it's been condemned by the employers. The

:01:10.:01:13.

three unions involved say it's just the start of a campaign for better

:01:14.:01:17.

wages. In a few moments, we'll hear from the University and College

:01:18.:01:20.

Union, but first this report from Mike Cartwright. It is one of the

:01:21.:01:32.

most famous universities. Here, too, they walked out. From three

:01:33.:01:36.

different unions, workers who earn their living in higher education.

:01:37.:01:44.

Professors on the higher pay scale, cleanest `` clean of the lowest

:01:45.:01:49.

side`by`side today. Three unions say they have thousands of members in

:01:50.:01:53.

the city. This man is a cleaner in the chemistry lab. Some sad stories

:01:54.:01:59.

you hear about people when it comes to lighting and heating their

:02:00.:02:04.

houses, paying mortgages, even going on strike, not getting paid. A lot

:02:05.:02:08.

of people have to worry about their pay packet the end of the month and

:02:09.:02:12.

how they will make ends meet. Among them, students supporting the

:02:13.:02:18.

strike. They have taken a pay cut over the next three years and we

:02:19.:02:21.

believe that we'll have a negative effect. It is truly important we

:02:22.:02:26.

have staff who are paid decently. They are being overworked and

:02:27.:02:34.

underpaid. A 1% pay increase far from high enough. They're in ploy is

:02:35.:02:41.

say different. We have made it clear that 1% is the maximum of

:02:42.:02:44.

affordability for institutions that they are to remain sustainable in a

:02:45.:02:50.

competitive environment. We have the unions will return to the table and

:02:51.:02:53.

recognise they have got a good offer. Across the region, people

:02:54.:03:00.

walked out. In Northampton, lecturers said they had no choice

:03:01.:03:04.

but to strike. We have had a 13 effective pay cut over the last few

:03:05.:03:10.

years. That means that people are leaving academia and going into

:03:11.:03:13.

Private industry because they cannot let their families on the income. In

:03:14.:03:17.

Cambridge, both universities that stays strike caused minimal

:03:18.:03:20.

destruction but workers laid if there pay does not improve, other

:03:21.:03:37.

strikes could follow. With me is David Goode, secretary of

:03:38.:03:41.

the Cambridge branch of the University and College Union. You

:03:42.:03:44.

represent the teaching staff on strike today. Lecturers are on

:03:45.:03:46.

salaries of ?33,000 a year upwards. Is it right you should be striking

:03:47.:03:50.

alongside cleaners who earn considerably less? Absolutely. It is

:03:51.:03:57.

fair that we have solid ashtray with the lower paid workers on for

:03:58.:04:04.

ourselves. `` solidarity. We have been consistently underpaid for the

:04:05.:04:07.

last four years, losing approximately 13%. A lot of people

:04:08.:04:14.

in the country and all kinds of professions are in a similar boat.

:04:15.:04:20.

Students we heard from said that lecturers are overworked and

:04:21.:04:23.

underpaid. Many members of the public feel about you only teach the

:04:24.:04:28.

few I was a week and you were already well paid. Who is right The

:04:29.:04:32.

students. They are at the sharp end of what we deliver. They are also

:04:33.:04:37.

playing tuition fees and many of them could not go to lectures today.

:04:38.:04:41.

The students passed a motion on Monday night supporting us and one

:04:42.:04:45.

of the points they trust said it was worth from their point of view the

:04:46.:04:49.

temporary and short lived destruction not a strike rings in

:04:50.:04:55.

order to secure a better paid and better motivated staff in the long

:04:56.:04:59.

term. The government cannot just create money out of nowhere, so if

:05:00.:05:03.

you and your members will be paid more, where'd you suggest the

:05:04.:05:07.

government cuts back's the government does not need to cut

:05:08.:05:13.

back. There is already a surplus in the institution in the UK. The

:05:14.:05:17.

higher education authority reported a 1.1 billion operating surplus in

:05:18.:05:23.

higher education. That is not money that needs to be obtained from

:05:24.:05:27.

cutting from some of. They have the money, they just do not want to give

:05:28.:05:34.

it to us. Tomorrow, you will be working to rule. What does that

:05:35.:05:37.

mean? We will be sticking to tasks and duties which are contractual

:05:38.:05:43.

obligations. We will not be doing things like additional meetings

:05:44.:05:47.

Thank you for joining us to night. Thieves won't stop us feeding the

:05:48.:05:51.

homeless. The message from a soup kitchen in Peterborough after

:05:52.:05:54.

thousands of pounds' worth of their supplies and cookers were stolen.

:05:55.:05:59.

The charity provides food for around 60 people every night. Louise

:06:00.:06:02.

Hubball is with the team now. Louise, how are they coping? They

:06:03.:06:09.

feed around 60 homeless people every night from this unit and what

:06:10.:06:14.

thieves did is they broke in on Tuesday night and stole two

:06:15.:06:18.

handbags, managed to get a set of keys and then came back and help

:06:19.:06:21.

themselves. You can see these shells full of donated food. They were even

:06:22.:06:27.

from. The thieves struck a number of teams, mainly Tina and corned beef.

:06:28.:06:39.

`` tuner. This room is where they prepare the food and heat up the

:06:40.:06:45.

soup. Thieves took three cookers from here which had only been

:06:46.:06:49.

installed three weeks ago. They got away with goods with a value of

:06:50.:06:56.

around three thousand pounds. 1 0 volunteers work for this charity

:06:57.:07:02.

they are absolutely devastated. I am joined by Ian. Tammy what the

:07:03.:07:08.

reaction of the volunteers has been. Speechless. My own feeling when ..

:07:09.:07:15.

Your heart sinks when you first cheered this. Some people have said,

:07:16.:07:20.

you must be joking. I was going to say, throughout the day, you have

:07:21.:07:24.

had a lot of support the generosity of the public in the last 24 was has

:07:25.:07:28.

been overwhelming. We have been inundated on the telephone with

:07:29.:07:33.

offers of support, financial, support with cooking, we have one of

:07:34.:07:43.

which came very early on from the Hindu temple next door. That is so

:07:44.:07:49.

heartening. Very quickly, just come over here with me. The charity is

:07:50.:07:53.

not giving up. It will be out on the streets tonight delivering food

:07:54.:07:59.

A marina on the Grand Union Canal in Bedfordshire has been drained of

:08:00.:08:02.

water after the gates to a nearby lock were left open. Around 30 boats

:08:03.:08:06.

at Grove Lock in Leighton Buzzard were grounded in the early hours of

:08:07.:08:10.

this morning. It's thought it may have been done deliberately. Neil

:08:11.:08:19.

Bradford reports. What a level that Grove Lock marina are now almost

:08:20.:08:24.

back to normal. `` water levels In the early hours of this morning

:08:25.:08:27.

those living here had a rude awakening. Just after 4am, they

:08:28.:08:31.

found they were sitting at the bottom of the canal. These people

:08:32.:08:39.

were among those working by emergency services who have been

:08:40.:08:43.

alerted like a concerned resident. I had to step up from the boat onto

:08:44.:08:49.

the jetty. There was no water in the canal. It was a good scary at the

:08:50.:08:54.

time. You are worried about what will happen to your boat, whether it

:08:55.:08:59.

will get damage. It was Gary. If they go into the jetty and be water

:09:00.:09:06.

comes back in, we will damage our boats. `` it was scary. We have two

:09:07.:09:11.

look after a lot of boats to make sure this did not happen. The marina

:09:12.:09:16.

sits between two blocks only a short distance apart and it appears the

:09:17.:09:21.

water levels dropped after Gates to one of them were opened in the

:09:22.:09:26.

night. It is half term and there are many more inexperienced voters on

:09:27.:09:31.

the canal, but the owners say this is no accident. It is impossible to

:09:32.:09:36.

navigate the lock with both `` with both kids open and it is the second

:09:37.:09:42.

time it has happened. It happened on Saturday during the day. I was able

:09:43.:09:47.

to shut the gates before we got into difficulties. You think it is

:09:48.:09:55.

someone having a prank? Yes. Whatever the reason, the boat owners

:09:56.:09:58.

hope whoever is responsible has now had their fun.

:09:59.:10:05.

Drivers have been faced with a 30`mile diversion and severe delays

:10:06.:10:08.

for most of the day on two separate sections of the A14 in

:10:09.:10:13.

Cambridgeshire. A lorry fire in the early hours forced the westbound

:10:14.:10:15.

carriageway to shut between junctions 20 and 21, where it joins

:10:16.:10:19.

the A1M at Brampton. And a crash involving a jack`knifed lorry and

:10:20.:10:22.

several cars during rush hour shut the eastbound side between junctions

:10:23.:10:26.

32 and 33. One person was treated for neck injuries.

:10:27.:10:32.

The labour MP for Corby says the town's large Scottish population

:10:33.:10:35.

should be given a voice in the debate on Scottish Independence

:10:36.:10:40.

There are more than 7,500 Scottish`born people living in the

:10:41.:10:42.

Northamptonshire town, enough to sustain their own social club. But

:10:43.:10:46.

they won't get a vote in the referendum next September on whether

:10:47.:10:49.

Scotland should remain part of the UK. Sometimes you get the result you

:10:50.:11:06.

want. But on the future of Scotland's relationship with the UK,

:11:07.:11:10.

these people living in Corby will have no more influence than they do

:11:11.:11:14.

one which numbers can up at the bingo. Any of the people who can

:11:15.:11:20.

sure we either born in Scotland or their parents were. They won't get a

:11:21.:11:25.

vote in next year 's referendum on Scottish independence. One

:11:26.:11:28.

conservative borough council `` comes that think they should. They

:11:29.:11:33.

think they should have a say on Scotland's future. I would like to

:11:34.:11:37.

think it would stop them from the stink. They are entitled to vote. Do

:11:38.:11:42.

you identify more as a member of Corby? That's Nutley not. Still

:11:43.:11:53.

proud of the Heritage? Definitely. `` definitely not. If begins to us,

:11:54.:11:58.

I will take it. I am not bothered. For someone who was born in

:11:59.:12:01.

Scotland, would you like to have a say in the referendum? Yes. Scottish

:12:02.:12:08.

family started coming to Corby in the 1930s with the development of

:12:09.:12:12.

the iron and steel works. They found jobs and after the factories closed,

:12:13.:12:17.

the remainder in the town. If they do not live in Scotland and in all,

:12:18.:12:21.

why would they care if it stays part of the UK? It will be more

:12:22.:12:26.

complicated to maintain the business links and family connections big ``

:12:27.:12:32.

because travel will become more difficult. There are genuine

:12:33.:12:38.

concerns about the relationship between people here and in Scotland

:12:39.:12:43.

if they go independent. Whether Scotland decides to go it alone or

:12:44.:12:48.

not, these expats remain proud of their heritage. They may not affect

:12:49.:12:53.

the numbers called out for yes or no in the referendum, but many still

:12:54.:12:58.

want their views and voices heard. And you can see Ben's full report on

:12:59.:13:03.

Sunday Politics East. Etoille and the team will also be looking at the

:13:04.:13:06.

aftermath of this week's storms and whether plans to increase the size

:13:07.:13:10.

of the EU will mean an influx of more foreign workers. That's on

:13:11.:13:13.

Sunday morning from 11:00am. Northampton Saints have submitted

:13:14.:13:16.

plans for a new ?5.5 million stand at Franklin's Gardens. The new North

:13:17.:13:19.

Stand would increase capacity by nearly 2,000 to 15,500. The stand

:13:20.:13:24.

would include a bar, hospitality suites and ten boxes.

:13:25.:13:32.

after this horrible incident, people have vowed to pulled together. They

:13:33.:13:34.

will be out again feeding the homeless tonight, and here are some

:13:35.:13:37.

of the produce they will take with them.

:13:38.:13:39.

still to come in the programme tonight, we are on the Trail of the

:13:40.:13:48.

wail of the coast of Norfolk. And Rachel and Pasha hoping to rise to

:13:49.:13:51.

the occasion in strictly this weekend.

:13:52.:13:57.

Now to some real small fry. But they will grow to be about this big,

:13:58.:14:04.

unless, of course, you are an angler, in which case it is probably

:14:05.:14:06.

out there. They were bred in Nottinghamshire, and today they were

:14:07.:14:09.

released into the Corby boating lake, where numbers have been

:14:10.:14:12.

falling. More than 5,000 carp and roach were brought on the 1.5`hour

:14:13.:14:15.

journey. And it's hoped more people will be encouraged to try fishing.

:14:16.:14:24.

The end of a long journey, the start of a new life. Transported at a

:14:25.:14:31.

steady 10 degrees, so their new home is not a shock to the system. The

:14:32.:14:35.

fish are transported on pure oxygen, so they are quite happy in the

:14:36.:14:38.

tanks. You got to be really careful when netting them out of the tank.

:14:39.:14:42.

Obviously, we don't want to damage them. It has taken 18 months to get

:14:43.:14:46.

to this point, so the last few minutes are important. Here is where

:14:47.:14:51.

they are from. And Environment Agency farm in Nottinghamshire,

:14:52.:14:54.

where they are counted out electronically after being reared in

:14:55.:14:57.

greenhouses in the vital first few months. Della macro we feed them on

:14:58.:15:02.

the little tiny shrimp we have, and then we stuck them into ponds. From

:15:03.:15:06.

there on, we are trying to rear these fish in as natural a way as

:15:07.:15:09.

possible. A big difference for our faces, we are trying to produce fish

:15:10.:15:14.

that are fit for purpose and can cope with life in the wild, and that

:15:15.:15:19.

is not easy. Among the fish being released today is the 10 million

:15:20.:15:22.

fish that has been bred to restock the nation's lakes and rivers. It

:15:23.:15:26.

could be to replace those lost by pollution, but today, they are being

:15:27.:15:29.

released to encourage more people to take up wishing. `` fishing. The

:15:30.:15:36.

people they really want to take up fishing is the next generation,

:15:37.:15:41.

hoping to attract young anglers this afternoon. I am teaching my son the

:15:42.:15:45.

basics of fishing, and how to go about it, what baits to use, how to

:15:46.:15:51.

put it, what hope to use. The basics of fishing, really. It keeps them

:15:52.:15:55.

off the streets, keeps them out of Misti, and it is learning them

:15:56.:15:58.

something. I think it is good, because you get to see the fish when

:15:59.:16:02.

you catch them, and I find this fascinating. Just catching them, and

:16:03.:16:07.

how you put them back in, and how they flap about. While today they

:16:08.:16:12.

are stuffing of the fish, others are stealing them. That has become a big

:16:13.:16:17.

problem throughout the country. We do have a lot of illegal fishermen

:16:18.:16:20.

come down here at night will stop and think once we have gone off

:16:21.:16:24.

site, that we don't return, but we do. We sneaked back in the dark and

:16:25.:16:29.

we. It is part of a nationwide restocking programme. The future's

:16:30.:16:32.

bright for the fish here, even if their new home looks murky.

:16:33.:16:37.

The tens of millions of people who watch Strictly Come Dancing will

:16:38.:16:40.

know that Rachel Riley from Essex is struggling to please the judges. Of

:16:41.:16:44.

course, she's a presenter on the programme Countdown, and has been

:16:45.:16:48.

told she needs to fight to stay on the show.

:16:49.:16:53.

You can't fault the effort. The couple are training 30 hours a week,

:16:54.:16:57.

and on Saturday they'll be hoping to impress with an American Smooth. In

:16:58.:17:01.

a moment we'll hear from her mum, but first Gareth George has been to

:17:02.:17:13.

meet Rachel and Pasha in training. At a secret location in London,

:17:14.:17:20.

Rachel Riley and her partner Pasha rehearse for this Saturday's live

:17:21.:17:24.

show. How nerve racking is it when you go out on that live show? I

:17:25.:17:30.

would be thinking, I going to get my steps? It is pretty terrifying. I

:17:31.:17:35.

can keep myself calm until the music Homs on, and then it is just, where

:17:36.:17:38.

are my? You have got so much adrenaline. Even more nerve wracking

:17:39.:17:46.

when you activate the judges. They were not too kind about Rachel's

:17:47.:17:51.

modern take on a glass of Dublin. You have come out with a lot of

:17:52.:17:54.

aggression and a lot of clean lines and clean for work, and it just did

:17:55.:17:59.

not quite work. That is a great pity. You must have a thick`skinned,

:18:00.:18:05.

have a new, because some of the judges... Do you think they have

:18:06.:18:11.

been a bit rude? The judges, I mean you have to be critiqued, obviously,

:18:12.:18:16.

but the person I want to do well for is Pasha, because he sees me in

:18:17.:18:19.

training, he sees where I have started, where I am at the start of

:18:20.:18:23.

the week, how much effort I put in and how much improvement I hopefully

:18:24.:18:27.

make. Is she a natural density macro Rachel... Sorry, Rachel. Oh, she not

:18:28.:18:33.

here. Rachel is not a natural dancer, so you see on Saturday

:18:34.:18:40.

night, it is actually... It requires hours and hours of hard work for

:18:41.:18:44.

her. But they are still rooting for that her old school, and across the

:18:45.:18:50.

rest of Essex. I am getting things through my letterbox, my old school

:18:51.:18:53.

are supporting me, there posters up in the Indian takeaway and

:18:54.:18:57.

everywhere around! It is really sweet, and having all the support is

:18:58.:19:03.

like having a talking animal. His staunchest supporter is her mum. She

:19:04.:19:09.

is put posters up. She is doing all sorts. It is brilliant. It is her

:19:10.:19:13.

favourite programme. She wants a dance with Pasha, that is a request

:19:14.:19:15.

! Late this afternoon, we spoke to

:19:16.:19:18.

Rachel's mother Celia, and started by asking is she was confident for

:19:19.:19:28.

the weekend. I am 75% confidence. I think she has

:19:29.:19:32.

had a good week of practice, she is really looking forward to it, and

:19:33.:19:36.

she is absolutely loving the dance. And do you love watching here when

:19:37.:19:40.

you see her do that live, or have you got your head in your hands? No,

:19:41.:19:46.

I haven't got my head in my hands, but my heart starts thumping, and

:19:47.:19:49.

When She Was Mine a dance off, I was grabbing hold of the seat in front

:19:50.:19:54.

of me for dear life. And when the judges say unkind things about it,

:19:55.:19:59.

what is your reaction? Well, as a mother, I am obviously feeling for

:20:00.:20:05.

Rachel. The slug in salt was not too kind, but I'm very proud of the way

:20:06.:20:09.

she keeps a smile on their face and she takes it. I don't think I could

:20:10.:20:14.

take the criticism that well. And does she take it OK, order she

:20:15.:20:17.

phoned you up and come and see you afterwards, upset by it all? No, she

:20:18.:20:22.

doesn't mention it at all. She just carries on. It makes it more

:20:23.:20:26.

determined and come back the next week and rectify anything they have

:20:27.:20:29.

mentioned that needs rectifying. It just makes you stronger. Tell me a

:20:30.:20:33.

little bit about how hard she is working at this. She is dancing all

:20:34.:20:39.

the hours she can. She thinks she is wasting time I actually being asleep

:20:40.:20:43.

or eating, and she has lost a lot of weight. And she has got blisters all

:20:44.:20:48.

over her feet, and I Inc you know that she has got a back problem, so

:20:49.:20:53.

she is in pain, but she is going to dance through that pain, and she is

:20:54.:20:57.

very determined to do her very best. And she has an incredible amount of

:20:58.:21:00.

local support. Out important is that? Extremely important. I have

:21:01.:21:07.

been canvassing all my friends and acquaintances. She has her own fan

:21:08.:21:11.

club, Pasha has his own fan club, I have been going round the town with

:21:12.:21:15.

posters. I give a lot of talks to groups. I have asked them to vote

:21:16.:21:19.

for Rachel. Some lovely comments online. She has had lovely Twitter

:21:20.:21:23.

comments from people like Liz Hurley and Sarah Milligan and other sorts

:21:24.:21:27.

of people. Everybody says it is one of the best things they do in their

:21:28.:21:30.

life will stop at leaving it has changed a? Well, for one, she

:21:31.:21:34.

absolutely loves dancing now. She has never dance in her life will

:21:35.:21:39.

stop I only saw the dance at their wedding, and that was the first time

:21:40.:21:42.

I have seen it on the dance floor. I think she wants to carry on dancing.

:21:43.:21:46.

Everybody seems to get the bug from dance thing. I have always had the

:21:47.:21:51.

bug. I used to dance very many years ago. Rachel is now loving it, and

:21:52.:21:55.

she wants to continue. Give her our best wishes. But look at the

:21:56.:21:58.

weekend, and thank you for being with us. Thank you very much indeed.

:21:59.:22:03.

Keep voting ! A humpback whale has been sighted

:22:04.:22:08.

you entered one of these competitions once. Second, not

:22:09.:22:19.

first. You are going to get yourself into trouble ! We are going to talk

:22:20.:22:24.

about Wales now. A humpback whale has been sighted of

:22:25.:22:28.

the Norfolk coast in recent days. It was first spotted at Hemsby early on

:22:29.:22:31.

Tuesday morning, and since then, hundreds of people have flocked to

:22:32.:22:35.

the coast to try to catch a glimpse. It's the first time a humpback whale

:22:36.:22:39.

has been spotted in the waters off Norfolk. Mike Liggins was up bright

:22:40.:22:42.

and early this morning, to see what he could see. Sadly things didn't go

:22:43.:22:51.

exactly to plan. Hemsby, just north of great

:22:52.:22:55.

Yarmouth. This is where Ryan Irvin and his girlfriend Tabatha spotted

:22:56.:23:00.

the humpback whale early on Tuesday morning. They were the first to see

:23:01.:23:04.

it. I just looked out the patio doors, and there was a big blow, and

:23:05.:23:09.

I shouted to Tabatha, Wale ! She came running through, and we get the

:23:10.:23:12.

telescope out, and managed to see it surfacing. We were pretty certain it

:23:13.:23:23.

was a humpback whale. Both Ryan and Tabatha are marine scientists, so

:23:24.:23:26.

could they help this fine the way? Apparently, we had to look for

:23:27.:23:31.

gannets. Bewail associates with a group of gannets. They follow the

:23:32.:23:35.

Wale, looking for an easy lunch. North of the air is Winston, whether

:23:36.:23:38.

Wale was spotted on Tuesday and Wednesday. You could see a long way

:23:39.:23:45.

out, but no Wale insight. So, here's one we made earlier. The humpback

:23:46.:23:48.

whale, to 19 metres long, and 36 tonnes. It is a big Wale, but it is

:23:49.:23:56.

an even bigger C. We have not spotted it yet. Just one or two very

:23:57.:24:06.

curious seals. I've got it. I have filmed it. Andy Lawson filmed it.

:24:07.:24:11.

Here's an action replay. This is what we wanted, but the humpback

:24:12.:24:15.

didn't seem to be around. I now, we had been joined by this man, who

:24:16.:24:18.

came from Nottingham to see the whale. He sensed my frustration. You

:24:19.:24:23.

need to have patience and optimism, but also, you shouldn't forget about

:24:24.:24:29.

where you are and seeing what is around you. Good advice !

:24:30.:24:36.

There was a rumour the Wale had been spotted further north. We're now

:24:37.:24:44.

going to sea. Why has the humpback been a? Experts say, why not? A ban

:24:45.:24:49.

on commercial whaling means that numbers are growing, and it was

:24:50.:24:52.

probably only a matter of time. Sadly, we never did see the whale,

:24:53.:24:56.

but he is out there somewhere, and who knows. One day, he may even let

:24:57.:25:05.

us film him. Patients and optimism. Kind of sums

:25:06.:25:09.

up Mike, doesn't it? Well, he is optimistic, anyhow. The weather now.

:25:10.:25:15.

Good evening. We will see some rain in the next few days, and strong

:25:16.:25:19.

winds. At the moment, quite calm, although you may catch a shower. We

:25:20.:25:23.

have had lots of cloud around today, and it was they cloudy through this

:25:24.:25:27.

evening. This rant gets time to clear first thing, but if you are

:25:28.:25:30.

unlucky, you might catch a shower. For most people heading out for

:25:31.:25:34.

Halloween, it should just about stay dry. A good deal of cloud will mean

:25:35.:25:37.

a mild night. Just the chance of a shower in the first out of the

:25:38.:25:41.

night, and later, perhaps the use what's of light rain or drizzle, but

:25:42.:25:45.

mostly by the end of the night, a dry end. Temperatures for most of us

:25:46.:25:50.

are hanging around ten or 11 degrees, but we might find one or

:25:51.:25:54.

two spots dropped to eight or nine Celsius. Into tomorrow, this is our

:25:55.:26:00.

pressure pattern. An area of low pressure moves in from the

:26:01.:26:04.

south`west. There is a little bit of uncertainty as to how far north it

:26:05.:26:07.

will go, and that will determine how much rain we get, so for many of us,

:26:08.:26:12.

it will be a cloudy start, and gradually, we will see some rain

:26:13.:26:16.

developing into the afternoon. We could see quite a lot of dry weather

:26:17.:26:20.

in the morning. Temperatures around 12 Celsius, perhaps up to 13 in one

:26:21.:26:27.

or two spots, and the wind generally is light and south to

:26:28.:26:30.

south`westerly. Into the afternoon and evening, this is where it could

:26:31.:26:33.

get interesting, because the rain could really turn quite heavy if the

:26:34.:26:37.

low`pressure gas fire, that the moment, it looks like the heaviest

:26:38.:26:41.

rain will affect parts of Essex and Hertfordshire, and that could

:26:42.:26:44.

produce some heavy bursts of rain, some problems or a shower, no doubt.

:26:45.:26:51.

Looking ahead, the next low`pressure system is moving in on Saturday. The

:26:52.:26:55.

significance of this will be the strength of wind, particularly for

:26:56.:26:58.

the evening and overnight, with gusts possible between 40 and 50

:26:59.:27:02.

mph. That could be a problem if you are heading out on Saturday night,

:27:03.:27:06.

the day itself does knowledge bad. It should stay mostly dry, sunny

:27:07.:27:10.

spells in the morning, increasing cloud, and then the wind speed

:27:11.:27:13.

rationing into the evening and overnight. Some rain on that front,

:27:14.:27:18.

some perhaps a bit more persistent into the overnight period. Gradually

:27:19.:27:22.

clearing away, but still windy for Sunday. There is just about a chance

:27:23.:27:26.

of a shower for Sunday, but some sunny spells as well. It looks like

:27:27.:27:30.

a settled darter next week, cooler by day, and overnight, a quick

:27:31.:27:35.

barometer check, 1014 millibars, 29 inches will stop thank you. Not

:27:36.:27:41.

great for fireworks. We will see you tomorrow. Goodbye.

:27:42.:28:24.

Planet Earth - it's unique. It has life.

:28:25.:28:29.

To understand why, we're going to build a planet...up there.

:28:30.:28:36.

These were the objects that were making the Earth.

:28:37.:28:39.

We're now weightless. That's how our planet started.

:28:40.:28:42.

Your arms are a little bit long Is that as small as they go?
