Good evening. A woman from Luton has returned home

:00:12.:00:16.

after spending the last few weeks in Nepal searching for her missing son.

:00:17.:00:19.

Margaret Finlay has been working with search and rescue teams in the

:00:20.:00:22.

Himalayan mountains looking for Matthew Allpress, who was last seen

:00:23.:00:25.

trekking near the village of Sikles at the beginning of November.

:00:26.:00:36.

This was to be Matthew Allpress's final expedition before returning

:00:37.:00:39.

home. He was heading to a remote mountain lake but it is built on his

:00:40.:00:43.

way be weather took a turn for the worse. He was trekking up to a pass

:00:44.:00:50.

which was 5600 metres and the experts estimate that when he got

:00:51.:00:53.

there, it would have been around about the eighth or 9th of December

:00:54.:00:58.

and they had about eight feet of snow fall over those two days. What

:00:59.:01:04.

happened after the snow fell is still a mystery. Margaret throughout

to Nepal to help with the search but it was a search that found nothing.

:01:10.:01:14.

How did you feel having reached the end of the search and having to come

:01:15.:01:20.

back to England? Devastated. To be honest, I am glad that I flew out at

:01:21.:01:24.

night so that I could not see the Himalayas out of the window because

:01:25.:01:28.

it was too traumatic. But despite being back home in Luton,

:01:29.:01:36.

Margaret's search continues via the Internet where the search for

:01:37.:01:41.

Matthew has gone viral. I know in my heart that he is still alive. He

:01:42.:01:45.

will be found and I will not leave any stone unturned until I find him.

:01:46.:01:50.

One of the region's busiest train stations has been closed today but

:01:51.:01:54.

not because of the weather. The station at Peterborough has shut

:01:55.:01:57.

down for major renovation work. The project is costing ?43 million.

:01:58.:02:06.

And ?40 million project that has been months in the making. To many

:02:07.:02:12.

platforms, a free clip and new signalling. It is about allowing the

:02:13.:02:23.

trains, making it easier for customers to get onto the trains and

:02:24.:02:26.

also in times of trouble, having greater capacity than incidents. It

:02:27.:02:32.

is thought the ?43 million project will help to cater for a growing

:02:33.:02:40.

number of commuters and obesity's economy. We are seeing more money

come this way and it is very important to us. We need the best

:02:45.:02:49.

possible service into London and also into places like Leeds, York

:02:50.:02:54.

and Newcastle. Peter Barron needs to play an important part along that

:02:55.:02:59.

line. Network rail says the work will improve journeys for belief in

:03:00.:03:07.

a million passengers here. `` 44 million passengers here.

:03:08.:03:10.

In football, the manager of Norwich City is in a bullish mood ahead of

:03:11.:03:14.

this weekend's game at home to Man United. But Chris Houghton admitted

:03:15.:03:17.

today that the team's playing is rather inconsistent.

:03:18.:03:21.

His Christmas list must have had three points against Fulham on it

:03:22.:03:27.

but unfortunately did not work out that way for him. He admits his team

:03:28.:03:34.

are inconsistent. I'm tall yesterday, we were on a brand. We

:03:35.:03:41.

had not been beaten for three games. It is my responsibility and the

:03:42.:03:46.

team's responsibility to get back to a level of consistency that we were

:03:47.:03:53.

at before yesterday's game. Yesterday, Manchester United gave

:03:54.:03:58.

Howell a 2`goal head start and still won. So, any special plans for Wayne

:03:59.:04:12.

Rooney? We will play against him like we play against anybody else.

:04:13.:04:16.

There was no difference. Of course, he is a really good player, a star

:04:17.:04:21.

player, but we have played against lots of very good players. In Gary

:04:22.:04:28.

Hooper, the Canaries also have a player in strong form but they know

:04:29.:04:31.

they will have to be at their very best to get anything tomorrow.

:04:32.:04:40.

The all`important weather now. We have been largely OK.

:04:41.:04:50.

There are still a fuchsia was around and it is quite blustery, but the

:04:51.:05:02.

showers are becoming much more infrequent and as the wind stopped

:05:03.:05:06.

as well, we should see lower temperatures but dry weather. A dry

:05:07.:05:12.

and bright start tomorrow, with a bit of patchy cloud in the

:05:13.:05:16.

afternoon. Possibly some isolated showers across southern parts of the

:05:17.:05:21.

region. Feeling a little bit chilly but the wind is much lighter man

:05:22.:05:26.

today. A light to moderate south`westerly. Dry and bright for

:05:27.:05:30.

the afternoon. Looking ahead to Sunday, it will be a cold start

:05:31.:05:34.

because the temperatures overnight on Saturday are likely to drop

:05:35.:05:38.

further. Maybe more of a widespread ground frost. The sunshine should

:05:39.:05:44.

make you feel comfortable on Sunday and then on Monday, another weather

:05:45.:05:50.

system working its way in. We start the week worked and windy again.

:05:51.:05:53.

That's it. I'm back with the Look East late news at 10.10pm. Bye for

:05:54.:05:54.

now. Good evening. What a week it has

:05:55.:06:13.

been, a stormy start, a law through Christmas, then a wild end to the

:06:14.:06:19.

week, had to keep up, isn't it? This was a vicious area of low pressure

:06:20.:06:25.

last night, but today the winds have been strongest across northern

:06:26.:06:29.

areas, where it is still blowing a gale. That will gradually subside as

:06:30.:06:34.

we go through the night, although a windy night across Scotland with
