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

:00:09.:00:13.

about education ` the battle to beat the men grooming young girls.

:00:14.:00:16.

Mourning Father Joseph ` hundreds attend the funeral of the priest

:00:17.:00:19.

found dead in a supermarket car park.

:00:20.:00:26.

Why rising power bill means more work for the woodsmen.

:00:27.:00:31.

The tributes honouring the man thought to be the world's first

:00:32.:00:32.

black professional footballer. First tonight: Children must be

:00:33.:00:48.

taught how to recognise and report abuse at an earlier age. That's the

:00:49.:00:54.

call today from the children's charity NSPCC. It follows

:00:55.:00:58.

yesterday's conviction of two men and three teenage boys for a series

:00:59.:01:01.

of rapes and sexual assaults against underage girls in Peterborough. The

:01:02.:01:06.

city council has launched a serious case review to find out what lessons

:01:07.:01:10.

can be learned from the case, but agrees with the need for better

:01:11.:01:13.

education. We'll be speaking to the Chief Executive in a few moments,

:01:14.:01:17.

but first this report from Emma Baugh.

:01:18.:01:24.

A class of teenagers at Peterborough's local school in a sex

:01:25.:01:30.

education class. It became even more apparent that there have been young

:01:31.:01:33.

people in Peterborough who have been abused, have been groomed,

:01:34.:01:37.

approached, for reasons which are really wrong. Even though none of

:01:38.:01:41.

these young people were affected, the way they teach sex education

:01:42.:01:46.

here has changed. It is only in the last 18 months or so that we've been

:01:47.:01:52.

overtly teaching about child sexual expectation because I think it's

:01:53.:01:55.

really important that schools keep up`to`date with that. It's no good

:01:56.:01:58.

teaching it in the old`fashioned way of just avoiding pregnancy. Sex

:01:59.:02:02.

education is much more important than that, and keeping them safe in

:02:03.:02:05.

terms of error and social health and relationship safety. It was in this

:02:06.:02:11.

part and others around Peterborough that girls were abused by groups of

:02:12.:02:20.

men. Yesterday Hassan Abdulla and Zdeno Mirga were found guilty of

:02:21.:02:23.

multiple rapes and sexual offences. Police say they are now

:02:24.:02:25.

investigating a number of other cases right across Peterborough

:02:26.:02:29.

involving different nationalities from ten different communities. We

:02:30.:02:35.

are invading with a large number of people and urging them to share

:02:36.:02:38.

their experiences, what they've heard and what they believe to be

:02:39.:02:41.

the case. We'll be doing this for some months come. I anticipate

:02:42.:02:45.

further charges and further trials in due course. Child welfare

:02:46.:02:50.

charities say it's never too early to start educating children about

:02:51.:02:55.

the dangers of sexual abuse. In this case in Peterborough, we do have

:02:56.:02:59.

some very young victims. That's particularly important. Parents

:03:00.:03:04.

should think that they don't wait until teenage years to talk to their

:03:05.:03:08.

children about sexual matters but talk to them in their early years.

:03:09.:03:13.

The men in this case face sentencing next month but police say other

:03:14.:03:16.

investigations are very much ongoing.

:03:17.:03:19.

Gillian Beasley is the chief executive of Peterborough City

:03:20.:03:21.

Council. She's also a former child protection officer. The NSPCC says

:03:22.:03:31.

we can't wait until secondary school to educate children about sexual

:03:32.:03:39.

predators ` do you agree? I've listened to your piece and I think

:03:40.:03:43.

there is excellent work happening at the academy you featured and they

:03:44.:03:46.

need to be proactive and work hard in schools to get the message across

:03:47.:03:51.

to young girls. But it is larger than that. I'm a parent and I'd want

:03:52.:03:55.

to know what to look for in my daughter. If her behaviour is

:03:56.:03:59.

changing, things that aren't right. I'd also want to know how to report

:04:00.:04:04.

that on one of the key messages in this case is that our social workers

:04:05.:04:15.

and the police are trusted. There are people to really work with young

:04:16.:04:19.

girls to tell their stories. That's what happened with these case and

:04:20.:04:23.

why these men were convicted. You think parents shy away from sex

:04:24.:04:27.

education is they're worried about taking their child's innocence? I

:04:28.:04:35.

think there will be many parents listening to this today who want the

:04:36.:04:39.

best for their children and if they know education of this kind is going

:04:40.:04:42.

to help them against these predatory and despicable criminals, they'd

:04:43.:04:47.

want to go with it. You were in court to hear these children relive

:04:48.:04:51.

their experiences. They thought they were going to die. It's up to all of

:04:52.:04:56.

us to try to stop this, isn't it? I heard the youngest victim's evidence

:04:57.:05:02.

and it was shocking. I went cold. She was describing how she thought

:05:03.:05:05.

she would be killed and how her family and the people she loved most

:05:06.:05:09.

of the world would be killed. One of the things that has come out of this

:05:10.:05:12.

case is how we must understand the way these men operate, and how they

:05:13.:05:18.

absolutely target young girls. They groom them and use them for sex and

:05:19.:05:24.

that is education as well. It's us understanding as a society how these

:05:25.:05:29.

men work. The city's MP Stuart Jackson says this case should ring

:05:30.:05:32.

people we think immigration ` is that what this is about? `` make the

:05:33.:05:40.

bull rethink immigration. My experience shows that this is not

:05:41.:05:46.

men defined by their ethnicity or background but by a despicable

:05:47.:05:49.

attitude towards children. We've seen the scenario in the Philippines

:05:50.:05:55.

with abuse by the internet in the Philippines. I did an investigation

:05:56.:05:59.

20 years ago of a caretaker who was abusing over 100 children. We've got

:06:00.:06:04.

to understand how these men operate. They're ruthless in their

:06:05.:06:07.

determination to target young girls and we've got to be equally ruthless

:06:08.:06:11.

in the way that we understand how they operate and we wipe out this

:06:12.:06:16.

kind of thing in Peterborough and across the country. Thanks for your

:06:17.:06:18.

time. Meanwhile, an investigation by

:06:19.:06:21.

Northamptonshire Police has led to the breaking up of an international

:06:22.:06:25.

child sex abuse ring. Officers paid a routine visit to a known sex

:06:26.:06:28.

offender in Kettering. They found Timothy Ford was paying a family in

:06:29.:06:32.

the Philippines to sexually abuse children live on webcams. He was

:06:33.:06:36.

jailed last year but the investigation which followed has led

:06:37.:06:42.

to 29 arrests around the world. His disappearance sparked concern

:06:43.:06:45.

across the Catholic community of Luton. Three days later, that

:06:46.:06:49.

concern became shock after Father Joseph Williams' body was found in

:06:50.:06:54.

his car in a supermarket car park. Today hundreds of people ` including

:06:55.:06:57.

the Bishop of Northampton and 5 Catholic priests ` attended his

:06:58.:07:07.

funeral. Anna Todd reports. Every inch a parishioner, a friend,

:07:08.:07:13.

a colleague, all paying tribute to Father Joseph Williams, who served

:07:14.:07:17.

this community, this little church, for two years until his death just

:07:18.:07:22.

after Christmas. So many priests that they had to sit in a side room.

:07:23.:07:28.

The Bishop of Northampton paid tribute to Father Joseph,

:07:29.:07:31.

remembering how worried they'd been when he went missing. The concern

:07:32.:07:35.

and helplessness that we had been feeling was replaced by an

:07:36.:07:43.

anguished, turmoil and grief. It was at the news that he had been found

:07:44.:07:46.

dead while on a simple shopping trip. Father Joseph, just 42 years

:07:47.:07:54.

old, has appeared on December 2 . His body was found three days later,

:07:55.:07:58.

slumped at the wheel of his car in this supermarket car park. Today's

:07:59.:08:03.

service was an outpouring of sadness and disbelief. A lovely man. I still

:08:04.:08:11.

think he's walking among us but as we know, it's not going to be and,

:08:12.:08:17.

as you see, people come in and they loved him. This is a very strong

:08:18.:08:24.

community and lots of people live near the church so there's a great

:08:25.:08:29.

sense of a bond between the Irish and its people in the church and, of

:08:30.:08:34.

course, the priest is the focus for that in different ways. `` the

:08:35.:08:40.

parish and its people. Today Father Joe is a should have been

:08:41.:08:42.

celebrating a belated Christmas with his family in Devon. Instead, his

:08:43.:08:47.

others were in Devon for his funeral. `` his brothers.

:08:48.:08:53.

A jury's heard today that a man accused of helping a serial killer

:08:54.:08:56.

dispose of her victim's bodies had warned she could kill. Joanna

:08:57.:08:59.

Dennehy stabbed three men to death, leaving their bodies in ditches near

:09:00.:09:02.

Peterborough. At Cambridge Crown Court, Gary Stretch and Leslie

:09:03.:09:05.

Layton deny preventing lawful burial of the victims. Stretch is also

:09:06.:09:08.

accused of attempting to murder two men. This report from home affairs

:09:09.:09:17.

correspondent Sally Chidzoy. The jury heard more about the victim's

:09:18.:09:23.

character at the trial today. `` about Joanna Dennehy's character.

:09:24.:09:29.

These men died during the ten day killing spree. Their bodies, one in

:09:30.:09:34.

a black sequinned dress, were found in two ditches near Peterborough at

:09:35.:09:38.

nine months ago. The jury were told that Gary stretch, described as

:09:39.:09:42.

Dennehy's trusted aide, had confided in one witness that she could kill.

:09:43.:09:47.

Carla White lived in the same house as a seven tall Gary stretch, whom

:09:48.:09:52.

she described as a gentle giant She said he told her that Dennehy would

:09:53.:09:59.

kill the victim David Lee `` Kevin Lee because she was distressed he

:10:00.:10:01.

hadn't paid her for decorating work. She said he was very rude and

:10:02.:10:06.

arrogant and that the serial killer had, for no reason, grabbed her

:10:07.:10:11.

throat so she pulled a hammer in self defence. She said Dennehy then

:10:12.:10:16.

apologised. Dennehy had been having an affair with Kevin Lee, a married

:10:17.:10:21.

father of two. She made him put on the dress shortly before he died. A

:10:22.:10:29.

witness said Dennehy told her he was gay. `` she was gay. Another

:10:30.:10:36.

witness, Kieron James, described seeing Gary Stretch leave the house

:10:37.:10:43.

near Peterborough at one night carrying a large, black refuse sack

:10:44.:10:47.

with something heavy inside. He placed it in the boot of his green

:10:48.:10:51.

Astra. The prosecution say he used it to dispose of the bodies. The car

:10:52.:10:56.

was registered in the name of a fictitious company called Undertaker

:10:57.:11:06.

And Sons. The breakfast show presenter for BBC

:11:07.:11:08.

Radio Northampton, Stuart Linnell, has been knocked over by a police

:11:09.:11:12.

car. It happened in Abington Square early this morning as Stuart was on

:11:13.:11:15.

his way to present his show. He s suffered severe bruising and will be

:11:16.:11:19.

off air for a few days. Police have launched an investigation.

:11:20.:11:22.

Fire officers have spent today investigating the cause of a fire

:11:23.:11:25.

which destroyed a warehouse in Newport Pagnell. Crews have

:11:26.:11:27.

continued to monitor the building today. The fire broke out just

:11:28.:11:30.

before two o'clock yesterday afternoon at the Liebherr

:11:31.:11:31.

Distribution Centre. football pitch, and our intention is

:11:32.:11:32.

to make sure that we show enough on the football pitch that we start

:11:33.:11:45.

getting the points. Still to come, how our countryside is being changed

:11:46.:11:51.

as a result of rising fuel prices. And celebrating the life of Roger

:11:52.:11:54.

Lloyd`Pack. We talked with the director who worked with him.

:11:55.:12:00.

Last year, we revealed how Milton Keynes Council had the country's

:12:01.:12:03.

worst record outside London for placing homeless families in Bed

:12:04.:12:06.

Breakfasts and keeping them there too long. Now it's announced plans

:12:07.:12:11.

to spend ?4 million buying homes to rent out instead. It's not just

:12:12.:12:17.

buying ` it's also building. For the first time in 15 years, new council

:12:18.:12:21.

homes are being built to deal with the housing shortage. In a moment,

:12:22.:12:25.

we'll hear from our political correspondent Andrew Sinclair, but

:12:26.:12:31.

first this from Jessica Cooper. Home sweet home for Trooper and 20

:12:32.:12:38.

other people. Every night, this hostel is full. It is hard work. If

:12:39.:12:45.

you have no friends or family, you were on the street. At this time of

:12:46.:12:49.

the year, it is hard for anybody to be on the street. The council is

:12:50.:12:53.

planning to buy homes on the open market to help people most in need.

:12:54.:12:58.

I think something should have been done a long time ago. I don't think

:12:59.:13:02.

the council relies the amount of people that are homeless. They

:13:03.:13:10.

should do more. Won it would take a lot of homeless people off the

:13:11.:13:14.

streets. There are many under underpasses asking for money and

:13:15.:13:18.

food. Milton Keynes has had an ongoing problem with a shortage of

:13:19.:13:22.

places for people to leave. Last month, there were 53 people living

:13:23.:13:26.

in bed and breakfasts. Now the council wants to spend ?4 million

:13:27.:13:31.

buying 40 properties to rent to the homeless. Della mac is a radical

:13:32.:13:37.

step for us at a pragmatic step. It makes a lot of sense, because it

:13:38.:13:40.

allows us to make a difference quickly within six months to our bed

:13:41.:13:45.

and breakfast numbers. But some question whether 40 homes

:13:46.:13:49.

will make any difference in the long run. I think it will solve the

:13:50.:13:55.

emergency situation. The Milton Keynes Council finds it in in the

:13:56.:14:00.

meantime, back and give it another two or three years, and those homes

:14:01.:14:05.

will be occupied and I would imagine at least that number will be needed

:14:06.:14:10.

again. This is the typical property the council will want to acquire. It

:14:11.:14:15.

sounds like quite a lot if you are not used a boy `` buying 40

:14:16.:14:20.

properties in one go, but with the population and grace of Milton

:14:21.:14:24.

Keynes, it is not a huge amount. To acquire 40 properties is not a tall

:14:25.:14:29.

ask. If the plans are approved, buying could start by the end of

:14:30.:14:33.

next month. Next week, for the first time in over 15 years, the council

:14:34.:14:36.

will start building new council houses. Our political correspondent

:14:37.:14:48.

is he up. This is not unique to Milton Keynes Council is to elect

:14:49.:14:51.

councils were not allowed to build any new homes. Add to that the

:14:52.:14:55.

rising cost of the private property sector, and housing lists have

:14:56.:15:01.

rocketed by 70% of the last decade. Milton Keynes had a particular

:15:02.:15:04.

problem. They spent more than ?1 million last year on hotels and bed

:15:05.:15:08.

and breakfast accommodation. The government said we will help you if

:15:09.:15:11.

you come up with a radical solution. Here it is. I have to say

:15:12.:15:16.

that Labour are sceptical. They say this is a desperate measure to avert

:15:17.:15:22.

a disaster. They say the council may end up buying some of the homes it

:15:23.:15:26.

once old `` owned but sod off. Could it be copied by other

:15:27.:15:31.

authorities? Other authorities are watching. People I spoke to suspect

:15:32.:15:35.

other authorities may follow suit. The number of people on council

:15:36.:15:40.

waiting lists have started to come down in recent years, but that is as

:15:41.:15:43.

a lot of people waiting for permanent homes. 13,000 homes in

:15:44.:15:48.

Norfolk and Suffolk, 20,000 in Norfolk. That is partly because the

:15:49.:15:52.

government is starting to allow councils to build again. But it

:15:53.:15:55.

takes time to buy the land, corrupt the plans and build the houses.

:15:56.:16:00.

Being able to buy a ready`made home and put someone in it straightaway

:16:01.:16:03.

is a very risky and expensive way of doing it, but given the way the

:16:04.:16:07.

market is going, they might be a bit of profit when they come to sell the

:16:08.:16:11.

homes. Is the bottom line that the bottom line that there aren't enough

:16:12.:16:15.

affordable homes? Yes. Many people believe that housing will be the

:16:16.:16:19.

next election, not the economy. That is why the government is changing

:16:20.:16:22.

the planning laws to make it easier to build. That is why Labour say we

:16:23.:16:26.

will seize land of developers if they don't do quickly enough. The

:16:27.:16:30.

parties have woken up to how big a problem this is. Thank you.

:16:31.:16:33.

Rising fuel costs are having a significant impact on our

:16:34.:16:35.

countryside because there's a growing demand for wood to burn. 7%

:16:36.:16:39.

of the east of England is covered by woodland, but up until now, only

:16:40.:16:43.

half of it has been managed to produce timber or firewood. But as

:16:44.:16:47.

the cost of power keeps going up, more and more of us are heating our

:16:48.:16:51.

homes with open fires or log burners. That means there is money

:16:52.:16:54.

in it for landowners, who are now actively managing their woodland.

:16:55.:16:58.

This report from our business correspondent, Richard Bond.

:16:59.:17:08.

Any would? Learning how to copy it in a Suffolk wood. These college

:17:09.:17:11.

students are cutting diesel for firewood. These studs can go back

:17:12.:17:20.

for future harvest. These are skills back in demand. This really

:17:21.:17:27.

regenerate quickly, so it will grow in a number of years so you can use

:17:28.:17:31.

it again, is that would you cut down. It will keep on growing and

:17:32.:17:37.

growing. Likes to writing energy prices, the firewood market is

:17:38.:17:40.

booming. There is an increasing number of people with wood`burning

:17:41.:17:43.

stoves. People are concerned about rising cost of electricity and gas.

:17:44.:17:47.

A lot of people are looking outward as another means of heating their

:17:48.:17:55.

homes. Whether by `` via different kinds of burners. We need several

:17:56.:18:00.

new entrants to replace the people that are coming towards retirement

:18:01.:18:04.

age. Over the last ten years, average gas bills have risen by

:18:05.:18:11.

189%. Average electricity bills are now 136%. The cost of firewood has

:18:12.:18:16.

risen too, but not by as much as. It has risen by about 50 or 75%. Most

:18:17.:18:23.

of that is within the last few years. More than 7% of the East is

:18:24.:18:27.

covered with wood land, but only half of it is properly managed like

:18:28.:18:31.

this. That means 200,000 tonnes of timber is unused every year. But

:18:32.:18:38.

rising prices are encouraging landowners to bring neglected words

:18:39.:18:42.

account management. He has invested in this firewood processor. It is in

:18:43.:18:50.

his estate that the students are working in. The value of firewood

:18:51.:18:56.

was very well and was not an economically viable. However, in the

:18:57.:19:04.

last few years, prices have increased significantly, which makes

:19:05.:19:07.

it more viable to provide that service to customers. This is not

:19:08.:19:14.

just good business, it is also great for wildlife.

:19:15.:19:20.

I'm sure most have you have already heard the actor Roger Lloyd`Pack has

:19:21.:19:24.

died. He was 69, and had pancreatic cancer. The actor, who lived in

:19:25.:19:27.

Norfolk, was probably best known for his role as Trigger in Only Fools

:19:28.:19:31.

Horses, and later as the farmer Owen Newitt in the Vicar of Dibley. His

:19:32.:19:34.

more recent appearances included a lead role in the film In Love With

:19:35.:19:38.

Alma Cogan, which was filmed in Cromer. Tony Britten is the film's

:19:39.:19:44.

director, and he's here now. What was it like as a man? He wasn't

:19:45.:19:48.

trigger in real life. Della mac know. He was gentle. Sometimes

:19:49.:20:00.

grumpy. Endearing. In some ways, a private person, but had an enormous

:20:01.:20:06.

breadth of achievement. He was mad about poetry. His wife was a

:20:07.:20:14.

well`known poet, and I first saw him doing a poetry evening at a

:20:15.:20:21.

theatre, and he did well. Was he aware that he was central to

:20:22.:20:25.

some of the great comedy moments in British television? He can't have

:20:26.:20:31.

been aware. Did he resented? I think, sometimes. Hello, Trigger..

:20:32.:20:41.

His name is red. I think for any actor, I think it is a double`edged

:20:42.:20:48.

sword. I have no doubt that the doors Trigger. Open for human were

:20:49.:20:58.

very useful. People may not realise how diverse and after he was,

:20:59.:21:01.

because when he was doing a film with you, it was doing to get a

:21:02.:21:06.

Lasorda spy. He did a lot of stage work as well. It was funny, because

:21:07.:21:12.

I wrote the film for human, which is a nice thing to do, actually writing

:21:13.:21:17.

it film for an actor. He worked on with me. I figured became quite

:21:18.:21:25.

truthful. He said, if you can raise the money, I mean. We've raised the

:21:26.:21:31.

money and we shot it in 2010 in the worst winter in memory. He had been

:21:32.:21:35.

looking forward to jot down the coast from his home. Instead of

:21:36.:21:42.

which, he was clawing his way through the snow. When he wasn't

:21:43.:21:46.

working, he had to go down to London. The interesting thing was he

:21:47.:21:49.

was not an awful man, but he loved it. You moved here in 1970. He was

:21:50.:21:59.

in a film shot around Milton came. They put him up in this little

:22:00.:22:05.

college miles from anywhere. It was about ?2 a week. He loved it and

:22:06.:22:11.

stayed on and kept renting. He had been there ever since. He is a real

:22:12.:22:16.

Norfolk man. Never happier, I suspect. He liked stomping around

:22:17.:22:21.

the wood lands around the college and being on his own. The tributes

:22:22.:22:25.

have been pouring in. What do you think he would have made of all this

:22:26.:22:30.

fuss? I think it would have been a wry smile. I think he would have

:22:31.:22:35.

been chuffed, but he would have wondered what the fuss was about,

:22:36.:22:41.

because he was a proper actor. Thank you so much for coming in.

:22:42.:22:47.

Most of you won't know the name Arthur Wharton, but he was the

:22:48.:22:49.

world's first black professional footballer. He died more than 80

:22:50.:22:59.

years ago, but there is a growing campaign to get a statue in his

:23:00.:23:02.

honour. In its rich, his supporters gathered to hear good news.

:23:03.:23:08.

He is the pioneer and trailblazer. He is an icon and simple. The sun of

:23:09.:23:19.

a minister, are the key to go before Preston and a host of other clubs in

:23:20.:23:24.

the 1980s and 90s. He was a first`class cricketer and sprinter,

:23:25.:23:28.

but his story is hardly known. How big is the statue? It is 16 feet

:23:29.:23:35.

tall. It is beautiful. In Ipswich, some modern sporting heroes came to

:23:36.:23:39.

remember the world's black professional player, and heard how

:23:40.:23:42.

five years of campaigning has finally paid off. It is going to

:23:43.:23:53.

Saint Georges Park. Other's story is fluent, so the statue had to be

:23:54.:23:55.

fluent. Whichever way you walk around it, you have to imagine where

:23:56.:24:01.

the shot came from. Hosting the event was Ipswich's four`time

:24:02.:24:07.

Olympic bobsled. As a young soldier, he was the only black man in his

:24:08.:24:10.

regiment. He understands the isolation. It must've been

:24:11.:24:19.

incredible. At least they did know about some black people. I have a

:24:20.:24:26.

whole empathy with that. Sadly, the story had no happy ending. Shunned

:24:27.:24:30.

by his religious family for adultery, he lost his celebrity

:24:31.:24:34.

status and ended his days down the mines. He died an alcoholic in 1930

:24:35.:24:38.

and was buried in an unmarked grave. FIFA, the UEFA have helped

:24:39.:24:45.

pay for the statue. The boy who conquered racial prejudice to become

:24:46.:24:54.

a sporting hero is honoured at last. Time now for the weather. Low

:24:55.:25:01.

pressure continues to be the theme of our weather. There has been a

:25:02.:25:05.

large area of low pressure that has been moving into the British Isles.

:25:06.:25:09.

There have been shown was rotating around it. Even though we started

:25:10.:25:11.

dry and some of the summer sunshine, over the last few hours,

:25:12.:25:16.

the shells have moved eastwards. Some have been on the heavy side.

:25:17.:25:20.

We'll continue to see showers through this evening and overnight.

:25:21.:25:25.

Still one or two could be heavily. It will be a gusty wind associated

:25:26.:25:29.

with the showers. Lots of cloud around. We're not expecting to be

:25:30.:25:33.

justifiable particularly well tonight. We can expect loads of

:25:34.:25:36.

around five or six degrees. It is mild for this time of year.

:25:37.:25:40.

Tomorrow, it will be showers to start, especially in the morning.

:25:41.:25:45.

They are widespread, but in the afternoon, they will go away and we

:25:46.:25:49.

will see something more dry. Perhaps more bright, but on the whole, it

:25:50.:25:55.

will stay fairly cloudy. Temperatures similar to today, eight

:25:56.:25:59.

or nine degrees, but a more noticeable breeze. It might feel a

:26:00.:26:04.

bit more chilly. By the afternoon into the evening, much of the

:26:05.:26:07.

showers look as though they will die away. Looking ahead to the weekend,

:26:08.:26:11.

we're not far, so what will it have in store? A bit more of the low

:26:12.:26:17.

pressure. That means unsettled, but the detail will be difficult to pin

:26:18.:26:22.

down. Expect lots of cloud, rain at times, but perhaps an East and West

:26:23.:26:29.

divide between Saturday and Sunday. Both are today, it looks as though

:26:30.:26:32.

the West will see the best chance of seeing some rain, if you call to

:26:33.:26:39.

best chance. But is looking dry. Windy for Saturday. Winds are more

:26:40.:26:47.

for Sunday. There will be an Eastern front bringing outbreaks of rain at

:26:48.:26:51.

times. Temperatures will stay steady at around about where they are now

:26:52.:26:56.

by day and night. By the time we get to Monday, we have slightly lighter

:26:57.:27:01.

winds. Clearer skies, cooler temperatures. By Monday, we could be

:27:02.:27:08.

looking at ground frost in places. It is staying unsettled.

:27:09.:27:11.

Temperatures are above average for this time of year. We will see a lot

:27:12.:27:15.

of cloud, but by Monday, hopefully something brighter starting to break

:27:16.:27:20.

through. If you have a barometer, you might want to do a check on your

:27:21.:27:24.

barometer. We have a reading tonight. It is 989 millibars, and

:27:25.:27:35.

that is 29.21 inches. Back to you. Thank you very much.

:27:36.:27:37.

That's all for now.
