Hello and welcome to Look East. On the programme tonight: He killed a

:00:10.:00:15.

man in a row over a parking space. Tonight, Alan Watts is starting a

:00:16.:00:18.

five`year prison sentence. Hundreds gather for the funeral of a

:00:19.:00:21.

26`year`old man found murdered in a Northampton churchyard.

:00:22.:00:25.

An extra ?6 million for a new city railway station.

:00:26.:00:35.

We go behind`the`scenes at Sizewell's new centre designed to

:00:36.:00:44.

deal with an emergency. And he's just a few hours away from

:00:45.:00:47.

being the first double amputee to reach the South Pole.

:00:48.:00:51.

Good evening. A pensioner who killed a man in a

:00:52.:00:55.

row over a parking space has been jailed for five years. Alan Watts

:00:56.:00:59.

was caught on CCTV punching Brian Holmes in the car park of Asda in

:01:00.:01:04.

Biggleswade. The punch knocked Mr Holmes to the floor and he later

:01:05.:01:08.

died in hospital. Today, a jury found the 65`year`old guilty of

:01:09.:01:12.

manslaughter. Neil Bradford has been following the case and joins us from

:01:13.:01:15.

Luton Crown Court. Neil, it didn't take them long to reach a verdict.

:01:16.:01:25.

No, after a trial lasting three days it took them just three hours to

:01:26.:01:29.

reject Alan Watts' version of events, that he was acting in self

:01:30.:01:34.

defence. There was grasping and cries of, yes, in the public

:01:35.:01:37.

galleries. The four`man gave the jury's verdict to the court. They

:01:38.:01:43.

accepted the prosecution's version of events, that this was an

:01:44.:01:46.

unprovoked attack with unnecessary violence, a moment of madness that

:01:47.:01:54.

changed people's lives forever. It lasted a few seconds but was a

:01:55.:01:59.

confrontation with fatal consequences. 64`year`old Brian

:02:00.:02:02.

Holmes had just been given the all clear from cancer. On the 3rd of

:02:03.:02:06.

August, he went shopping with his wife, Christine, at their local

:02:07.:02:10.

supermarket in Biggleswade. Also shopping at Asda on that day,

:02:11.:02:15.

65`year`old Alan Watts, on the right. He parked alongside Brian,

:02:16.:02:20.

who was using a disabled space and he lost his temper because he

:02:21.:02:24.

wrongly believed he was not entitled to park there. CCTV recorded what

:02:25.:02:30.

happened next. After making a sarcastic comment, Alan Watts

:02:31.:02:34.

stepped out of the car and punched Brian Holmes, first with his right

:02:35.:02:39.

arm, then with his left. As Mr Holmes fell to the floor, Alan Watts

:02:40.:02:42.

got back in his car and drove away. The following day, Brian Holmes died

:02:43.:02:49.

from serious head injuries. Today, outside court, his family explained

:02:50.:02:55.

the impact of his death. Brian was deprived of his life and our family

:02:56.:02:59.

have been deprived of a loving husband, father, stepfather and

:03:00.:03:03.

grandad. Many more people have been deprived of a good and loyal friend.

:03:04.:03:10.

Brian was, in every sense of the word, a gentleman, a caring, loving

:03:11.:03:15.

man with no enemies and many friends. He was a man for whom

:03:16.:03:23.

caring was second nature. Alan Watts claimed he was acting in self

:03:24.:03:26.

defence but the prosecution say it was an unprovoked attack and an

:03:27.:03:31.

extraordinary show of violence, a moment of madness that changed

:03:32.:03:35.

people's lives forever. Today, the jury agreed. This shows that you

:03:36.:03:42.

have to think before you act and speak. A family have lost their

:03:43.:03:47.

beloveds gentleman. And that is shown today. Just as he tried to

:03:48.:03:53.

hide from the cameras, Alan Watts tried to hide the truth. But he must

:03:54.:03:57.

now pay the price with a five`year jail term.

:03:58.:04:04.

Giving evidence yesterday, Alan Watts said he was sorry for what had

:04:05.:04:09.

happened. Sentencing him, the judge said this was a case of manslaughter

:04:10.:04:14.

akin to a road rage. He told him he had the opportunity to leave but

:04:15.:04:20.

instead he did not, and there were serious consequences. After the

:04:21.:04:24.

verdict, I heard applause from the family room, as the prosecutor

:04:25.:04:28.

entered, such is their relief that the case is over. But it is not just

:04:29.:04:33.

their lives that have been ruined. Alan Watts' family face their first

:04:34.:04:37.

Christmas without him. A 16`year`old cyclist has died

:04:38.:04:39.

following an accident in Cambridge city centre last night. Beth

:04:40.:04:42.

McDermot was involved in a crash with two cars on Milton Road just

:04:43.:04:46.

before 7pm. She was taken to Addenbrooke's hospital but later

:04:47.:04:49.

died. Long Road Sixth Form College says the student was popular with

:04:50.:04:52.

everyone and was committed to her studies. Police are appealing for

:04:53.:04:57.

witnesses. A Luton man has appeared in court

:04:58.:05:00.

after heroin with an estimated street value of ?40 million was

:05:01.:05:03.

found crammed into the bodywork of a Jaguar car. The National Crime

:05:04.:05:07.

Agency says the car was discovered in Essex on Friday evening.

:05:08.:05:11.

34`year`old Israr Khan from Luton, and a man from Bradford, have been

:05:12.:05:15.

charged with conspiracy to supply heroin.

:05:16.:05:22.

Dirty, poorly maintained and a potential risk to patients. Just

:05:23.:05:26.

some of the findings of inspectors who assessed a GP surgery in

:05:27.:05:31.

Peterborough. The Lincoln Road practice was one of ten across the

:05:32.:05:34.

country which was found to have "very serious failings.

:05:35.:05:42.

This is one of the worst GP surgeries in the country, saying

:05:43.:05:49.

inspectors, with failings that put patients at risk. Those seeing their

:05:50.:05:54.

doctors today were surprised and stunned. Shocking, surprised, very

:05:55.:06:01.

surprised. Does it put you off coming here? Definitely. I need to

:06:02.:06:07.

have a think about it again. I did not think it was like that. The

:06:08.:06:12.

doctors I see here are really good. That inspectors criticised the

:06:13.:06:15.

surgery for being visibly dusty, poorly maintained, with inadequate

:06:16.:06:20.

infection control. Staff were not familiar with fire alarms and risk

:06:21.:06:27.

assessments were not in place. We work closely with NHS England and

:06:28.:06:29.

their Clinical Commissioning Group to try to improve the quality of

:06:30.:06:34.

care. But if we do not find any improvement, we do have enforcement

:06:35.:06:38.

action. We will not tolerate very poor and dangerous practice, and we

:06:39.:06:44.

have had to take action already Across the street, planning

:06:45.:06:46.

permission has been granted for a brand`new surgery. But for the

:06:47.:06:51.

drawings to become a building, GPs here say they need the go`ahead from

:06:52.:06:55.

the NHS. In a statement, the practice say they're building is

:06:56.:06:59.

more than 100 years old, and they do not think it is appropriate for

:07:00.:07:02.

Ponty first century health care. Ponty first century health care

:07:03.:07:05.

They say since the inspection they have had two deep cleans and brought

:07:06.:07:10.

their infection control up to date. Those in charge decided not to go on

:07:11.:07:15.

camera today. What does in charge of a surgery now under scrutiny. ``

:07:16.:07:20.

doctors in charge of the surgery now under scrutiny.

:07:21.:07:23.

" The East Anglian Air Ambulance grounded its helicopters today for

:07:24.:07:26.

engineers to carry out an emergency inspection.

:07:27.:07:27.

The aircraft, based in Cambridge and Norwich, are the same type as the

:07:28.:07:31.

one involved in a crash in Glasgow earlier this month. They were out of

:07:32.:07:35.

action from 9.30pm last night but cleared for use again at 3pm today.

:07:36.:07:39.

The charity says ground crews responded to all call`outs whilst

:07:40.:07:45.

the helicopters were unavailable. Detectives investigating the

:07:46.:07:47.

exploitation of migrant workers in the Fens have arrested four more

:07:48.:07:52.

people. Two women from King's Lynn and two men from Wisbech have all

:07:53.:07:55.

been questioned on suspicion of fraud. They've since been released

:07:56.:08:00.

on police bail. It's the latest development in the operation which

:08:01.:08:07.

saw nine people arrested in October. The Deputy Prime Minister was in

:08:08.:08:10.

Cambridge today to sign a deal which will lead to the city having more

:08:11.:08:13.

control over its economic development. Nick Clegg said the so

:08:14.:08:17.

called city deal would create thousands of new jobs and speed up

:08:18.:08:21.

the building of homes and transport projects.

:08:22.:08:30.

This is a relatively new idea which the government believes will speed

:08:31.:08:33.

up growth and bring major economic edifice to Cambridge. This morning,

:08:34.:08:39.

the Deputy Prime Minister was at a local company that develops remote

:08:40.:08:43.

access software for computers. City Deal status, he said, would

:08:44.:08:49.

encourage or firms like this. Cambridge will be able to grow

:08:50.:08:53.

faster in future, build more affordable homes for people in

:08:54.:08:57.

Cambridge, invest in infrastructure, railway

:08:58.:08:59.

infrastructure, road infrastructure, which needs to keep pace with

:09:00.:09:04.

growth. Cambridge can do that in the future without waiting for the green

:09:05.:09:09.

light from Whitehall. City Deal status gives an area more of a say

:09:10.:09:14.

over development. It will be able to apply for extra grants and borrowing

:09:15.:09:18.

for infrastructure projects at preferential rates of interest.

:09:19.:09:22.

Historically, we have been waiting for government to recognise this and

:09:23.:09:25.

do the job for us. It has not happened. This gives us the

:09:26.:09:29.

opportunity to be given the resources to get on with the job.

:09:30.:09:34.

The full details are being worked on but they are expected to create

:09:35.:09:40.

45,000 jobs and help to build 33,000 new homes. There was another boost

:09:41.:09:45.

for the city today. Government announced ?6 million to go towards

:09:46.:09:50.

the new rail station for Cambridge. It is an important project. It helps

:09:51.:09:54.

to do everything we are here to do today, in terms of making the

:09:55.:09:58.

economy of Cambridge work, but it actually does something that gives

:09:59.:10:03.

better access to this great economy. The mood was one of optimism. There

:10:04.:10:07.

is talk that these announcements could bring more than ?1 billion of

:10:08.:10:13.

investment to the city. Talking about investment is one thing, but

:10:14.:10:17.

it will only be when jobs are created and things start to be built

:10:18.:10:22.

that we will see if city Deal status has really worked.

:10:23.:10:25.

Around 300 people have gathered today for the funeral of Jamie

:10:26.:10:29.

McMahon, whose body was found in a Northampton churchyard in October.

:10:30.:10:32.

The 26`year`old snooker club worker had suffered head injuries. There

:10:33.:10:36.

were so many well`wishers at the service, some had to listen from

:10:37.:10:45.

outside, as Louise Hubball reports. It was a funeral for a young man

:10:46.:10:50.

that friends and family say was taken to soon. It was a funeral full

:10:51.:10:56.

of personal touches. Jane in Marne, making his final journey in a camper

:10:57.:11:02.

van. `` Jamie McMahon. Friends and family wrote tributes in marker pen

:11:03.:11:07.

on his casket. The congregation was 300 strong and full of young faces,

:11:08.:11:13.

lining the driveway. Described by friends as a ray of sunshine, Jamie

:11:14.:11:19.

McMahon was just 26. His ordeal was found in Saint Giles Churchyard in

:11:20.:11:25.

October. `` his body. Police think he may have been attacked after a

:11:26.:11:28.

night out while taking a short cut. There were so many here today, each

:11:29.:11:34.

reflecting on their own memories. More tributes were visible when the

:11:35.:11:39.

casket was lifted into the chapel. There was not enough room for

:11:40.:11:43.

everyone inside, so some spilled out and listened through an open

:11:44.:11:48.

doorway. At one point, spontaneous applause could be heard rippling

:11:49.:11:52.

through the congregation. And there were more personal touches. The

:11:53.:11:56.

messages again and again read that Jamie McMahon will never be

:11:57.:11:58.

forgotten. Two men aged 33 and 19 forgotten. Two men aged 33 and 19

:11:59.:12:06.

have been charged with his murder. With links to royalty and historic

:12:07.:12:09.

connections to Luton, the Wenlock Jug was one of the town's most

:12:10.:12:13.

treasured possessions, until it was stolen last summer. But after a

:12:14.:12:17.

lengthy police investigation the jug was recovered. And today, as Anna

:12:18.:12:21.

Todd reports, it returned to its rightful place, back on display in

:12:22.:12:29.

the Stockswood Museum. The Wenlock Jug, back where it

:12:30.:12:34.

should be and hopefully where it will stay. Prized by Luton, pinched

:12:35.:12:41.

by a burglar, picked up by the police, and is now home at last It

:12:42.:12:47.

is good that it came back because we were worried about it. It is

:12:48.:12:52.

precious and it represents us for a long time. The people that stole it

:12:53.:12:56.

should not have done that because it could have been gone forever. There

:12:57.:13:01.

was always a doubt in my mind that maybe someone would realise it was

:13:02.:13:06.

not made of solid bronze and would melt it, throw it in a river or

:13:07.:13:09.

something. But I always felt in my heart that we would get it act one

:13:10.:13:16.

day. This was the moment when a man used a drain cover to smash and grab

:13:17.:13:20.

the medieval relic. A Crimewatch appeal led the police to a man in

:13:21.:13:26.

Surrey. We executed warrants and found the Wenlock Jug in the Garrard

:13:27.:13:31.

`ish, along with a small drugs factory, some stun guns and

:13:32.:13:37.

bullet`proof vests. At over 500 years old, it has been on quite a

:13:38.:13:41.

journey. Do you know, I feel I have seen this somewhere before. 480 000.

:13:42.:13:51.

journey. Do you know, I feel I have seen this somewhere before. 480,000.

:13:52.:13:55.

seen this somewhere before. 480 000. They are trying to decide whether

:13:56.:14:04.

half a million is too much. ?500,000. Last chance. Any more? It

:14:05.:14:09.

?500,000. Last chance. Any more It was bound for New York, but an

:14:10.:14:14.

export and stopped it in its tracks, allowing Luton Museum a chance.

:14:15.:14:18.

?750,000, and worth every penny. ?750,000, and worth every penny

:14:19.:14:24.

This is one of three in the UK of a similar period and royal

:14:25.:14:28.

connotation. One in the British Museum, one in the Victoria and

:14:29.:14:32.

Albert, and we have got one. We are so lucky. While its attacker is

:14:33.:14:38.

behind bars, the jug is back behind glass, very tough glass.

:14:39.:14:43.

In the varsity rugby match at Twickenham this afternoon, Cambridge

:14:44.:14:46.

University were soundly beaten by Oxford. Although it was tight up to

:14:47.:14:50.

half time, in the second half, despite having their scrum half sent

:14:51.:14:54.

off for foul play, Oxford pulled away to win the match 33`15. It s

:14:55.:14:57.

away to win the match 33`15. It's Oxford's fourth win in succession.

:14:58.:15:05.

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire is holding a special debate tonight looking

:15:06.:15:08.

into the controversial plans for a solar farm on land at Newborough

:15:09.:15:10.

near Peterborough. The City Council's leader, Marco Cereste, and

:15:11.:15:13.

MP Stewart Jackson will be taking part in the discussion which will be

:15:14.:15:16.

broadcast on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire tomorrow night at

:15:17.:15:24.

7pm. You can also hear highlights tomorrow morning on the Breakfast

:15:25.:15:27.

Show with Paul Stainton from 6am. And we'll bring have a report on

:15:28.:15:30.

that debate tonight at 10.25pm. Those

:15:31.:15:31.

Clacton while trying to stop a man who'd fired at two people in the

:15:32.:15:33.

street. PC Dibell is the first police officer in more than 20 years

:15:34.:15:39.

to receive the award. Still to come tonight: The

:15:40.:15:42.

shotputter training for the Olympic Games in 2020.

:15:43.:15:46.

And Duncan Slater from Norfolk is just a few hours away from being the

:15:47.:15:50.

first double amputee to reach the South Pole.

:15:51.:15:58.

After the Fukushima disaster two years ago, the owner of eight

:15:59.:16:01.

nuclear power stations in the UK agreed to spend ?180 million on

:16:02.:16:07.

extra safety measures. The first result of EDF's investment was

:16:08.:16:10.

opened today near the Sizewell B plant in Suffolk. It's cost ?12

:16:11.:16:19.

million and as you'd expect for that money it can withstand earthquakes.

:16:20.:16:25.

The first emergency response centre to be built in the UK since the

:16:26.:16:31.

Fukushima disaster. Today it was opened, a mile from Sizewell B, by

:16:32.:16:36.

the global head of EDF. This centre is intended as an additional line of

:16:37.:16:43.

defence. It will enhance our capability to recover during and

:16:44.:16:51.

after an extreme natural event. There was a review of UK nuclear

:16:52.:16:55.

safety after the Fukushima incident in Japan two years ago. A tsunami

:16:56.:16:59.

caused nuclear meltdowns and the release of radioactive materials.

:17:00.:17:05.

The Office for UK Regulation found UK stations had no fundamental

:17:06.:17:08.

weaknesses but recommended robust off`site back`up. `` Nuclear

:17:09.:17:15.

Regulation. There's already an emergency control centre at Sizewell

:17:16.:17:19.

B itself. This place is in addition to that. The company says it has the

:17:20.:17:23.

ability to take control of the station in a dire emergency. There's

:17:24.:17:28.

a control centre and lots of serious kit. Vehicles carrying diesel

:17:29.:17:32.

generators ` capable of driving through floods. Cutting equipment,

:17:33.:17:38.

firefighting gear... Why build this place? We're not in an earthquake

:17:39.:17:42.

zone and don't intend to get tsunamis... The point is to make

:17:43.:17:45.

sure we can respond to whatever may happen. Some events you can't

:17:46.:17:49.

predict. We've worked on the principle of what the worst thing is

:17:50.:17:53.

that could happen and how we'd be best placed to respond. We want to

:17:54.:18:00.

protect the public, our environment and our personnel. Not everybody's

:18:01.:18:07.

convinced. If there was an emergency around here there would be absolute

:18:08.:18:10.

chaos. No fancy emergency centre will hide that. It won't do a great

:18:11.:18:21.

deal to mitigate the impact of an accident. Sizewell B continued to

:18:22.:18:23.

generate during last week's exceptional storm surge. EDF says

:18:24.:18:27.

the new centre will only add to its resilience.

:18:28.:18:32.

It's been a fairy tale year for the 19`year`old Norfolk shot putter

:18:33.:18:37.

Sophie McKinna. She's broken a British junior record which stood

:18:38.:18:40.

for 30 years, won a Silver medal at the European Under 20 Championships

:18:41.:18:46.

and made her British senior debut. Sophie has also been included on a

:18:47.:18:50.

list of athletes who have the potential to win a medal at the 2020

:18:51.:18:54.

Olympics. She's coached by the former world strongest man Geoff

:18:55.:19:00.

Capes. She may be Britain's number one shotputter, but Sophie McKinna

:19:01.:19:03.

doesn't escape the basic chores. Today it's a short, sharp training

:19:04.:19:07.

session for the 19`year`old. Normally a session's a little but

:19:08.:19:11.

longer, but because of the weather I don't think we'll be doing too much

:19:12.:19:15.

more! ?? WHITE There are few girls as strong as Sophie ` and her coach

:19:16.:19:19.

knows a thing or two about strength. Former World's Strongest Man Geoff

:19:20.:19:23.

Capes was also a shot put champion. He's been working with her since she

:19:24.:19:28.

was 12. I saw a bit of me in her. This aggressive, nasty little piece

:19:29.:19:33.

of work! She wanted to throw the shot out the park but didn't know

:19:34.:19:38.

how. It's just about channelling aggression and everything else, then

:19:39.:19:41.

developing her over a period of time. Sophie's made big strides this

:19:42.:19:46.

year ` making her senior British debut, winning a Silver medal at the

:19:47.:19:50.

European Under 20 Championships and breaking a 30 year British junior

:19:51.:19:54.

record. To cap it all, she's just received funding for the next four

:19:55.:19:58.

years ` deemed as having potential to win a medal at the 2020 Olympics.

:19:59.:20:02.

I just really, really enjoy the sport. As soon as I picked up the

:20:03.:20:07.

shot, I knew it was something I'd really enjoy to do. Basically, I

:20:08.:20:11.

just love athletics ` the atmosphere at all of the different events, not

:20:12.:20:14.

just my own. I've always been a competitive person in whatever I do.

:20:15.:20:19.

30 centimetres... Come on! Fire it up! Sophie's strength is phenomenal.

:20:20.:20:25.

She can lift more than current British weightlifters of her age. If

:20:26.:20:29.

there's a downside, it's people's image of shotputters ` particularly

:20:30.:20:32.

in a world dominated by looks and appearance. If you're a little bit

:20:33.:20:37.

physical... Bigger than most girls... They can look at you

:20:38.:20:41.

sideways... Blinkered. They haven't got a clue about sport, in the

:20:42.:20:45.

realistic sense. They don't realise the effort and time that people will

:20:46.:20:52.

place on training and commitment. Obviously, I'm slightly bigger than

:20:53.:20:55.

the average human being. Slightly stronger, too. But once you have a

:20:56.:20:59.

conversation with somebody, there's always really supportive of what you

:21:00.:21:02.

do. They're interested and even come back to you to ask how you're doing.

:21:03.:21:07.

It's things like that... To me, it's not a massive problem. You have to

:21:08.:21:11.

make sacrifices to get places in your sport. One of them, I suppose,

:21:12.:21:16.

is what you look like. The 19`year`old's target next year is

:21:17.:21:22.

the Commonwealth Games. Her coach won it twice in his heyday. Sophie

:21:23.:21:37.

is keen to lay down her own marker. Very confident! Those weights would

:21:38.:21:56.

crush me! Congratulations to golfer Charley

:21:57.:21:58.

Hull from Northamptonshire who is on the short list for the BBC's Young

:21:59.:22:02.

Sports Personality of the Year award. Charley's been selected as

:22:03.:22:05.

one of three from an original short list of ten. The 17`year`old turned

:22:06.:22:08.

professional this year and made her debut in the Solheim Cup. The winner

:22:09.:22:12.

will be announced at a ceremony in Leeds on Sunday night. Good luck to

:22:13.:22:14.

her! A former RAF gunner who hopes to be

:22:15.:22:18.

the first double amputee to walk to the South Pole is just hours away

:22:19.:22:21.

from making history. Duncan Slater, from Norfolk, lost both his legs in

:22:22.:22:25.

an explosion in Afghanistan. Duncan and 11 other injured servicemen and

:22:26.:22:28.

women set off for Cape Town three weeks ago ` and then on to Novo

:22:29.:22:32.

Airbase in Antarctica. From there, they were flown to the start line

:22:33.:22:47.

200 miles from the South Pole. The start line of the South Pole allied

:22:48.:22:51.

challenge 12 days ago. Three teams racing to be the first to the bottom

:22:52.:22:55.

of the world. Many of these disabled veterans have lost limbs in war. One

:22:56.:22:58.

is completely blind. After this roadside explosion in Afghanistan,

:22:59.:23:01.

Duncan Slater lost both his legs. After months of training, tonight

:23:02.:23:05.

he's in a tent, in a gale, just 16 miles from the South Pole. It's 70%

:23:06.:23:09.

mental. 20% physical. 10% luck. You can see that when you get here. I

:23:10.:23:15.

can't wait. To be able to say we made it. We've worked really hard.

:23:16.:23:26.

The teams are skiing up to ten hours a day, pulling these behind them.

:23:27.:23:29.

Temperatures are dipping to `45 Celsius. Seven days in, those

:23:30.:23:31.

extreme conditions took their toll on some and a decision was made to

:23:32.:23:36.

suspend the race. With advice from my medical team, we felt it was

:23:37.:23:42.

sensible to stop here. It doesn't mean it's over. We proceed to the

:23:43.:23:52.

last checkpoint. We're still skiing. That decision lifted morale. As one

:23:53.:23:57.

united team, they pushed on. This Norfolk`based charity helps injured

:23:58.:24:02.

service personnel back into work. That's where they started. This is

:24:03.:24:07.

the track. They dreamt up this adventure. We're showcasing these

:24:08.:24:12.

individuals coming back from injury and adversity. Duncan is the first

:24:13.:24:17.

double amputee to get to the South Pole. Amazing. Prince Harry has also

:24:18.:24:30.

joined us. Outstanding. Fantastic. He's strong as an ox and helping to

:24:31.:24:35.

pull it all. Great to have him in the tent! He skips around like a

:24:36.:24:41.

ballerina! Tent`mates and team`mates together, Duncan and his fellow

:24:42.:24:44.

veterans should reach the Pole tomorrow afternoon ` Friday the

:24:45.:24:57.

13th... Lucky for them! It looks like hard work!

:24:58.:25:10.

Now for the weather. Chance of some rain on the way. High pressure being

:25:11.:25:22.

pushed eastwards. Milder Atlantic air coming our way. Thicker cloud in

:25:23.:25:31.

the west producing patchy rain. High level cloud ahead of it.

:25:32.:25:40.

Temperatures ` lows of four or five Celsius. Isolated pockets of frost.

:25:41.:25:58.

The breeze starts to freshen. Tomorrow will be governed by two

:25:59.:26:00.

weather fronts. Some rain but not too heavy. Expect

:26:01.:26:06.

a cloudy day with rain at times. Light and patchy. It should start to

:26:07.:26:32.

clear away. Drier and possibly brighter interlude. It will feel

:26:33.:26:40.

slightly less cold. You might feel a little chilly. Rain late afternoon.

:26:41.:26:53.

Much of this out of the way on Saturday.

:26:54.:26:56.

Rain overnight on Saturday. Breezy through the night. Fairly bright but

:26:57.:27:11.

some cloud around. It will stay largely dry. Overnight rain Friday.

:27:12.:27:21.

By Saturday night, another spell of rain. Out of the way on Sunday.

:27:22.:27:35.

Here's the barometer. Thank you. Goodbye.
