If you have heard a rumour that things will get colder and sweet,

:00:00.:00:10.

Recruitment crisis, the search for social workers to help

:00:11.:00:15.

Southampton's failing services. Also tonight, in the programme. Watching

:00:16.:00:24.

somebody suffer with cancer is horrible. Absolutely horrible.

:00:25.:00:30.

Seeking legal action. The family of a teacher who died of

:00:31.:00:35.

asbestos`related cancer. Later in the programme with Amelia

:00:36.:00:39.

and me. The rise and fall of Stephen Yaxley`Lennon, founder of the

:00:40.:00:42.

English Defence League in Luton And Stevenage square up to Premier

:00:43.:00:44.

League Everton, in the FA Cup. Good evening. First tonight,

:00:45.:00:52.

Northamptonshire is in urgent need of experienced social workers to

:00:53.:00:55.

overhaul its failing children's services. In all, 85 permanent staff

:00:56.:01:01.

are needed ` that's nearly a third of the entire department. The latest

:01:02.:01:05.

Ofsted report branded child protection in the county as

:01:06.:01:12.

inadequate and unacceptably poor. In a moment, we'll be hearing from the

:01:13.:01:15.

council, but first, this report from Stuart Ratcliffe.

:01:16.:01:19.

The death of a four`week`old Northamptonshire girl led to a

:01:20.:01:22.

Serious Case Review by the Safeguarding Children Board. She

:01:23.:01:27.

died apparently of natural causes while sharing a bed with her

:01:28.:01:32.

parents, who were both drug users. The risks were not fully appreciated

:01:33.:01:35.

and the the Child Protection Plan rushed. Just three months before

:01:36.:01:40.

this report, Ofsted rated the children services as inadqeaute in

:01:41.:01:43.

all five categories it was assessed on, saying management was

:01:44.:01:45.

consistently poor and staff reported being at tipping point. Now

:01:46.:01:53.

Northamptonshire is in the middle of its turn`around plan, but for this

:01:54.:01:57.

to work, it needs more social workers, and permanent ones, not

:01:58.:02:02.

ones supplied by agencies. Out of 232 social workers, 63 are temporary

:02:03.:02:05.

agency staff, and of the 50 senior social workers, half of them are

:02:06.:02:17.

from agencies. But the real issue is money. A social worker who is

:02:18.:02:22.

employed direct way by the county council costs the local authority

:02:23.:02:27.

around ?3000 a month. An agency worker costs around 5000. So now the

:02:28.:02:31.

recruitment drive to get more social workers to relocate to

:02:32.:02:33.

Northamptonshire is under way, but the question is, will they come

:02:34.:02:41.

Earlier, I spoke to the head of Children's Services in

:02:42.:02:43.

Northamptonshire, Alex Hopkins, and asked him just that ` will social

:02:44.:02:46.

workers want to join a failing service? One of the things that is

:02:47.:02:56.

really interesting about social workers and people who work in child

:02:57.:03:00.

protection if they don't do that kind of job for an easy life, they

:03:01.:03:04.

do it because they want to make a difference. They want to make a

:03:05.:03:07.

difference to children's lives. So a lot of them are interested in coming

:03:08.:03:11.

somewhere where it is re`challenging and they can make a real difference.

:03:12.:03:17.

But how did the service get to this position where so many of your good

:03:18.:03:22.

people have gone? Is this just a mismanaged service? I don't think it

:03:23.:03:26.

is fair to say so many good people have gone. There are national issues

:03:27.:03:30.

in terms of the kind of agency with staff working in social care up and

:03:31.:03:34.

down the country but having a stable, permanent workforce is

:03:35.:03:37.

absolutely critical to the improvements I need to make. And

:03:38.:03:42.

what incentives are you giving people to come to the county? OK, so

:03:43.:03:47.

we now have very competitive salary rates in terms of basic pay. We are

:03:48.:03:52.

offering relocation, we are offering very clear up career progression and

:03:53.:04:00.

they a lot of work we have put into making sure management supervision

:04:01.:04:03.

is there. All of those are leaky things for those who work in social

:04:04.:04:08.

work and child protection and those are in place. `` really important

:04:09.:04:15.

things. We will carry on with this recruitment until we have the number

:04:16.:04:19.

of staff that we need. It is just so, so critical to what we need to

:04:20.:04:23.

achieve, so this recruitment will continue until we get there. So

:04:24.:04:29.

meanwhile, the most vulnerable children are at risk? That is

:04:30.:04:34.

absolutely not the case. We have workers and A. Compliment but at the

:04:35.:04:37.

moment, a number of those are agency staff so they are not permanent

:04:38.:04:45.

members of staff. `` and staff compliment. But I want members who

:04:46.:04:50.

are committed to this county and to this authority.

:04:51.:04:53.

A 15`year`old boy has appeared in court accused of the attempted

:04:54.:04:56.

murder and rape of a 14`year`old girl in Luton. The girl was attacked

:04:57.:05:01.

in Lewsey Park on Sunday night. She's still in a critical condition

:05:02.:05:04.

and being treated at Addenbrooke's Hospital.

:05:05.:05:09.

A woman has received a suspended sentence for causing the death of

:05:10.:05:12.

her partner's two daughters by dangerous driving. Marie Easter was

:05:13.:05:17.

driving to the cinema in Peterborough a year ago when she

:05:18.:05:21.

crashed into a ditch on the A47 at Wisbech. The car flipped over,

:05:22.:05:25.

killing seven`year`old Jessica and her ten`year`old sister, Tamzin

:05:26.:05:29.

Marie Easter was given a two`year suspended sentence and disqualified

:05:30.:05:36.

from driving for four years. The family of a teacher who died

:05:37.:05:40.

from cancer say she was exposed to asbestos for more than 20 years at a

:05:41.:05:45.

Luton school. They're now threatening to take the council to

:05:46.:05:48.

court and they want others who may have been affected to come forward.

:05:49.:05:57.

Watching somebody suffer with this particular cancer is horrible.

:05:58.:06:03.

Absolutely horrible. Your brain gets starved of oxygen and you will be

:06:04.:06:08.

sitting there looking all right but your brain is dying. For Ian, the

:06:09.:06:13.

past two years have been tough. His wife Hazel died after contracting

:06:14.:06:18.

and asbestos`related cancer. She spent 20 years teaching at a primary

:06:19.:06:22.

school in Luton and now her family is convinced she contracted her

:06:23.:06:27.

illness through her work. The school was built in the late 30s and in the

:06:28.:06:35.

construction... It kept falling down into the classrooms and you could

:06:36.:06:39.

see it as well. Quite heavy air currents in the classrooms in the

:06:40.:06:44.

lofts because in the sunlight, you could see the dust in the air. It is

:06:45.:06:50.

not unusual for properties built before 1980 to contain asbestos The

:06:51.:06:55.

council admits many of its buildings contain the toxic material but the

:06:56.:06:58.

authority says it is unclear when Hazel would have come into contact

:06:59.:07:02.

with it. In a statement today, it said...

:07:03.:07:19.

But Ian is now consulting with a lawyer over possible legal action.

:07:20.:07:27.

We are no closer to reaching a resolution with Luton Borough

:07:28.:07:33.

Council. I ask them at the back end of 2012 to supply us with documents

:07:34.:07:43.

about the existence and building including asbestos, but even now,

:07:44.:07:47.

they have not supplied me with this document and it seems likely legal

:07:48.:07:51.

proceedings will follow due to their failure to engage. An appeal has

:07:52.:07:56.

gone out now to other families who may have been affected by asbestos.

:07:57.:08:00.

Next, to GCSE results, with latest figures for the region showing all

:08:01.:08:03.

of our local authorities have seen an improvement in grades. Top of the

:08:04.:08:07.

class is Hertfordshire, with just over 65% of pupils achieving five A

:08:08.:08:14.

to C grades in core subjects. And here are the others, with Bedford,

:08:15.:08:16.

Cambridgeshire and Milton Keynes also above the national average But

:08:17.:08:23.

there's always room for improvement. Part of driving up grades is finding

:08:24.:08:26.

the new, inspirational headteachers of the future, as Emma Baugh

:08:27.:08:27.

reports. 20 years in industry and army

:08:28.:08:45.

service. Now on the education front line. Matthew Van Lier is being

:08:46.:08:50.

fast`tracked to leadership, a new kind of teacher. I think really

:08:51.:08:56.

coming from industry, it helps you understand the expectations of

:08:57.:09:01.

employers, so I am able to say the difference between a great C and a

:09:02.:09:09.

great D is not just a grade but it can mean the difference between

:09:10.:09:12.

employment or not. ?? WHITE The two teachers at the St John Fisher

:09:13.:09:15.

Catholic High are part`funded by the Future Leaders programme, a charity

:09:16.:09:18.

which aims to raise students' achievements by developing teaching

:09:19.:09:21.

staff. They have a culture of no excuses in terms of what we do every

:09:22.:09:26.

day. We have to plan our lessons appropriately for the classes and we

:09:27.:09:30.

really have to give 100% all of the time for everything we do, not just

:09:31.:09:33.

in class but also leading across the school. The scheme is to help in

:09:34.:09:37.

areas seen as deprived but the school says all students benefit. I

:09:38.:09:43.

think he is much more than just a teacher. He gives us revision

:09:44.:09:51.

sessions and assemblies. You are not afraid to ask for help because he

:09:52.:09:54.

understands and can connect with you and can help you on a one`to`one

:09:55.:09:59.

level. The latest figures show last Year 7 out of ten students left with

:10:00.:10:04.

five good GCSEs grades compared to four out of ten the previous year.

:10:05.:10:09.

Making it the most improved school for GCSE results in Peterborough.

:10:10.:10:14.

Five years ago, the school was in special measures but has now been

:10:15.:10:22.

turnaround `` turned around. We do employ good teachers but this extra

:10:23.:10:26.

focus on leadership, especially with those identified with skills to

:10:27.:10:28.

change schools and make a difference, is something additional

:10:29.:10:31.

and something we are really benefiting from. You find it sad you

:10:32.:10:37.

are having to look to a charity like this to bring up standards? It is

:10:38.:10:40.

not we are having to look to them, it is just something being offered

:10:41.:10:44.

to schools and it is of huge benefit. More than 500 schools

:10:45.:10:48.

across the region could sign up for the leadership scheme. The charity

:10:49.:10:52.

says it could help all students whatever their background.

:10:53.:10:56.

Council workers in Bedford are to receive a new living wage instead of

:10:57.:11:00.

the official minimum wage set by the Government. It means low`paid

:11:01.:11:07.

workers will earn an extra ?40 a week, boosting wages to ?14,000 a

:11:08.:11:11.

year. It's hoped this will reduce the number of people supplementing

:11:12.:11:12.

their wages with benefits. have been helped to take up

:11:13.:11:19.

alternative work or are in training." There will be more on

:11:20.:11:23.

that story on the Sunday Politics programme BBC One at 11am.

:11:24.:11:28.

`` still to come, paramedics will be trained from scratch. And

:11:29.:11:40.

Commonwealth countdown after a disappointing 2013, can Olympic

:11:41.:11:44.

medallist Robbie Grabarz bounce back in the high jump?

:11:45.:11:50.

The former leader of the English Defence League has been jailed for

:11:51.:11:54.

mortgage fraud. Stephen Yaxley`Lennon from Luton was a

:11:55.:11:56.

co`founder of the far`right organisation in 2009. So what impact

:11:57.:12:00.

has the EDL had in Luton and beyond? This report is from Debbie Tubby.

:12:01.:12:10.

Tommy Robredo sin, former leader of the EDL, is again behind bars in

:12:11.:12:17.

solitary confinement after the court heard his life is in danger. He has

:12:18.:12:22.

been justly punished by the courts. We think partnerships with our

:12:23.:12:25.

community are much longer than they were before the EDL and will

:12:26.:12:30.

continue to be. I am now convinced of that so that really was not the

:12:31.:12:35.

legacy they had hoped but it is the legacy we are pleased has happened.

:12:36.:12:41.

Tommy Rowe Benson was the face of the English Defence League, his

:12:42.:12:44.

protests against Muslim extremists attracted thousands of people. It

:12:45.:12:51.

began in Luton in 2009 after Muslim protesters shouted insults as the

:12:52.:12:54.

Royal Anglian Regiment march through the town. But in October last year,

:12:55.:13:00.

he genetically quit, saying the far right extremism within its ranks. ``

:13:01.:13:06.

he dramatically quit. When I am saying something, it is me, it is

:13:07.:13:09.

nobody else within my organisation saying something like something

:13:10.:13:14.

stupid, throwing bricks. He has now been jailed for mortgage fraud. One

:13:15.:13:18.

of the properties was here in Luton. This person represents the

:13:19.:13:23.

contingency group set up in light of the EDL. We macro it will be a good

:13:24.:13:28.

time for him to sit and reflect on the damage he has caused around

:13:29.:13:34.

Britain and not only Luton. Him going into prison and all of the

:13:35.:13:39.

limelight that the EDL has received in the last few days as a result of

:13:40.:13:44.

this, I think it reinforces the fact that the EDL are long gone and this

:13:45.:13:50.

is probably the end of them. Many believe the demise of the EDL will

:13:51.:13:54.

be good for the town full top Luton is very nice to live in still.

:13:55.:13:58.

Gluten is diverse with many people so it is looking like an EDL Muslim

:13:59.:14:03.

clash is not good, real or what happens here every day. `` Luton is

:14:04.:14:11.

diverse. I don't think anybody you speak to seize the EDL as a negative

:14:12.:14:18.

force. Him being in prison has no affect on the EDL group, he says,

:14:19.:14:22.

and it will continue the fight he started.

:14:23.:14:30.

Just to clear up the name, Stephen Yaxley`Lennon actually called

:14:31.:14:32.

himself Tommy Rowe Benson while he was with the EDL. `` Tommy

:14:33.:14:36.

Robinson. Ambulance bosses have launched an

:14:37.:14:40.

ambitious plan to hire 400 staff and train them as paramedics from

:14:41.:14:43.

scratch. The East of England Ambulance Service has been beset by

:14:44.:14:45.

difficulties With poor response times and missed targets. But

:14:46.:14:48.

arguably the biggest problem is recruitment. Last year, the

:14:49.:14:53.

managers' aim was to take on 149 extra staff. The reality: 40

:14:54.:14:58.

paramedics left the organisation, 44 joined. A net gain of just four. So

:14:59.:15:11.

now, new tactics. You will not be a state riveted

:15:12.:15:14.

paramedic until full completion of the 2.5 year programme so you only

:15:15.:15:19.

undertake the training `` a state approved paramedic. You will take

:15:20.:15:25.

time out in the classroom to undertake further development before

:15:26.:15:31.

you reach the final paramedic stage. So it will be 2.5 years before these

:15:32.:15:35.

people fill the gaps that you need filling? They can operate as

:15:36.:15:42.

clinicians during that period as they develop throughout. Soap for

:15:43.:15:47.

people concerned about the arrival of an amulet is or a paramedic,

:15:48.:15:52.

nothing has changed? It will clearly increase the numbers quite quickly,

:15:53.:15:58.

working alongside already qualified staff and developing over those

:15:59.:16:01.

periods so it will have a significant impact initially in the

:16:02.:16:05.

numbers of staff we have available to response to our patients. But not

:16:06.:16:12.

fully qualified staff? They will be working alongside fully qualified

:16:13.:16:15.

staff while developing and as I said before, they will undertake a period

:16:16.:16:21.

of initial training so they will have clinical qualifications very

:16:22.:16:26.

early on in their career to work alongside clinicians. If I am taken

:16:27.:16:31.

ill, I might not get someone fully qualified to treat me? You might not

:16:32.:16:36.

get someone who is a qualified paramedic, they will have a student

:16:37.:16:43.

and a paramedic but they will be working with an already qualified

:16:44.:16:47.

clinician. Family people have you got to a fully qualified

:16:48.:16:53.

paramedics? `` how many people? We have got around 1000 staff that we

:16:54.:17:02.

employ and 900 are qualified paramedics. And when this training

:17:03.:17:09.

starts, you. Have 900 fully qualified paramedics and 40.5 years

:17:10.:17:12.

after that you will probably still have 900 fully qualified paramedics

:17:13.:17:19.

`` and four 2.5 years. That is right but we will be increasing numbers,

:17:20.:17:24.

they may not be at the paramedic level to reach state registration

:17:25.:17:28.

but they can still deliver a clinically qualified service working

:17:29.:17:29.

alongside colleagues. Thank you. Primary schools in Suffolk are

:17:30.:17:38.

languishing at the bottom of the league tables with nearly one in

:17:39.:17:41.

three pupils failing standard English and maths tests. And as

:17:42.:17:44.

we've reported, officials have promised to turn things around.

:17:45.:17:47.

Today, we were invited to see an example of how they are trying to do

:17:48.:17:51.

that. It's all about new teaching techniques which have already been

:17:52.:17:52.

successful in parts of London. We have started to learn this new

:17:53.:18:10.

method, haven't we ? This teaser seems simple, all we need to work

:18:11.:18:15.

out... And many children are there in the class? There are doubtless

:18:16.:18:18.

many ways of working but at this primary School, these nine and

:18:19.:18:22.

ten`year`olds are using a new technique which has proved a huge

:18:23.:18:28.

success in schools in London. It is called the primary advantage maths

:18:29.:18:30.

programme which comes from the schools in Hackney. The children are

:18:31.:18:36.

using a pictorial and concrete method to increase their conceptual

:18:37.:18:40.

understanding of maths. These boxes, bars and blocks to break things down

:18:41.:18:45.

and visualise the relationship between numbers. Emma has 25 toy

:18:46.:18:51.

cars... Even younger pupils on this table are grasping the concept.

:18:52.:18:54.

Small blocks are won and big blocks are ten. I experienced this method

:18:55.:19:04.

and I thought it makes sense. To see that replicated is stunning and it

:19:05.:19:08.

makes you think however hard it is, it is worthwhile because it will

:19:09.:19:12.

have an impact. Forging closer partnerships with inner London

:19:13.:19:16.

schools is the key to driving up levels of attainment. Staff are

:19:17.:19:19.

being trained at the capital and are now pioneering the plan on this site

:19:20.:19:25.

and eventually 12 others as well, backed by ?70,000 from a special

:19:26.:19:30.

challenge fund. Are used to be quite scared about fractions. This makes

:19:31.:19:36.

it clearer for me. I taught my parents have to do it. They are not

:19:37.:19:41.

as good as me yet! I suppose the danger is if you are under pressure

:19:42.:19:44.

and on the spotlight to get better results, you can end up clutching at

:19:45.:19:49.

straws. The team here believe this new method of teaching maths has so

:19:50.:19:53.

much to offer in the words of one of them, " we are not reinventing the

:19:54.:19:57.

wheel, we are simply using the best spokes".

:19:58.:20:01.

In the football this weekend it's the fourth round of the FA Cup. Our

:20:02.:20:05.

only survivors are two of our smaller clubs. Stevenage are rock

:20:06.:20:10.

bottom of League One. They're at home to Everton. But this report

:20:11.:20:13.

from Tom Williams starts with Southend. Their manager Phil Brown

:20:14.:20:16.

comes up against his old team Hull City ` for the first time.

:20:17.:20:24.

For Phil Brown, the Premier League highlights must seem 1 million miles

:20:25.:20:28.

away. This is what he calls real football, back to basics and a

:20:29.:20:32.

chance to get his hands and feet dirty. He made his name at Hull, he

:20:33.:20:38.

is said to rebuild his reputation at Southend. My overriding emotion is

:20:39.:20:43.

to win the game, progress to the next round, put out our best

:20:44.:20:50.

performance of the season because we need two and I will shake Stephen's

:20:51.:20:55.

hand whatever the result and waved to the fans and we will move on. He

:20:56.:21:01.

remains Hull's most successful ever manager, guiding them to the top

:21:02.:21:06.

flight for the first time in 104 years. Despite his achievements, he

:21:07.:21:10.

is often remembered for this, add 4`0 down, he conducted a team time

:21:11.:21:17.

hitch talk in full view of the people and the crowd. It is what off

:21:18.:21:26.

a duck 's back. It stays with you. They didn't talk about the win at

:21:27.:21:33.

Wembley, or the Emirates, or the history, so it is different now and

:21:34.:21:36.

we are taking Premier League opposition and we will hopefully do

:21:37.:21:41.

our best foot forward. Do you give your side a chance? Yes, I will be

:21:42.:21:49.

keeping them out at half`time, regardless at half`time. This is a

:21:50.:21:53.

chance for a major scalp. Debate has been raging for the importance of

:21:54.:21:59.

the FA Cup and Middlesbrough have a chance for a serious giant`killing

:22:00.:22:03.

and so far the competition has been highly lucrative. This year's cup

:22:04.:22:08.

run has banked them well over a quarter of ?1 million. Stevenage may

:22:09.:22:12.

be close to the bottom of a league but they have become known in the

:22:13.:22:20.

cup upset. We must make sure that the FA Cup retains its status, that

:22:21.:22:29.

the magic does not die, and the money still means everything. When I

:22:30.:22:35.

left here in round four, when I went up to Preston, the money that was

:22:36.:22:39.

made that season in the FA Cup literally built the training ground

:22:40.:22:43.

so there is a massive legacy from what the FA Cup has helped to

:22:44.:22:47.

create. It is everything it gives you a chance to be, a competitive

:22:48.:22:53.

league one club. The stadium is a sell`out as is Southend with the

:22:54.:22:55.

focus firmly on the manager. The country, the world is eyeing an

:22:56.:23:01.

upset and can either man deliver? It'll great if they could.

:23:02.:23:05.

The high jumper Robbie Grabarz was one of the surprise success stories

:23:06.:23:09.

of London 2012 securing a bronze medal with a jump of 2.29 metres.

:23:10.:23:14.

But 2013 wasn't so good. He could only finish eighth in the World

:23:15.:23:18.

Championships. So with the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow just

:23:19.:23:21.

six months away does he still have what it takes? With the indoor

:23:22.:23:24.

season starting this weekend a chance for us to find out.

:23:25.:23:34.

If 2012 was a personal highlight for Robbie Grabarz, 2013 was a

:23:35.:23:40.

shattering experience. The European champion was humbled on the world's

:23:41.:23:45.

stage, high jumping had just got higher and Robbie could only a ``

:23:46.:23:55.

matches Olympic height. You often do not feel confident and we have

:23:56.:24:00.

managed the knee injury well, I just could not jump as high as I could.

:24:01.:24:04.

He honed his technique at the high performance Centre in Birmingham in

:24:05.:24:08.

summer. This first hurdle to overcome is in Glasgow this weekend,

:24:09.:24:10.

the opening indoor meeting of the season.

:24:11.:24:14.

Do you think you have to prove to people that you are still capable of

:24:15.:24:18.

winning medals on the big stage? The most important thing is proving that

:24:19.:24:22.

to myself. I put more pressure on myself than anyone else and I know

:24:23.:24:26.

what I am capable of time proving that and hoping to do it again.

:24:27.:24:30.

Historically, he has responded well when the chips are down, losing his

:24:31.:24:35.

funding before the Olympics only to storm back with bronze and that was

:24:36.:24:38.

at a height of two per 29 metres but a medal at the World Championships

:24:39.:24:42.

last year, the bar had risen a further nine centimetres. The depth

:24:43.:24:48.

is incredible admen's high jump at the moment so I am looking at

:24:49.:24:51.

jumping personal bests to be in with a medal shout let alone winning

:24:52.:24:58.

championships. So it is tough but it is great, you need to get into great

:24:59.:25:03.

shape, you will never get away with a bad day. You need to bring your

:25:04.:25:07.

best. With a point to prove, Robbie is a dangerous proposition will stop

:25:08.:25:10.

in the year of the common wealth games, he knows he has to jump

:25:11.:25:14.

higher than ever before. That is to stand a chance of landing on the

:25:15.:25:16.

podium once again. He is very engaging, isn't he?

:25:17.:25:26.

Throwing yourself over a bar that high, it is amazing.

:25:27.:25:31.

Look how well we did for some chat today even though it was chilly.

:25:32.:25:36.

Across the east we saw plenty of sunshine especially in the morning

:25:37.:25:42.

`` look how we did for sunshine today. We look at the detail of the

:25:43.:25:48.

last few hours, you can see the rain is starting to arrive in western

:25:49.:25:53.

parts of the region and it will move east through this evening and

:25:54.:25:56.

overnight. It looks for the most part as if it will be light and

:25:57.:25:59.

patchy. Some heavy bursts possible that the range of mostly be cleared

:26:00.:26:08.

away by tomorrow morning. It brings us cloud said temperatures not as

:26:09.:26:13.

low as last night, a low of four Celsius seems to be what we can

:26:14.:26:16.

expect and we should be frost free. We starts tomorrow with the best of

:26:17.:26:23.

the weekend weather. It should stay dry with blustery showers arriving

:26:24.:26:27.

later that an area of low pressure spinning in across the British Isles

:26:28.:26:30.

on Sunday, it will turn our weather wet and windy through Sunday. First

:26:31.:26:35.

thing tomorrow, some rain or drizzle to clear and there will be some

:26:36.:26:39.

misty conditions particularly across the eastern half first thing but it

:26:40.:26:42.

should lift into low`level cloud and there should be some brighter

:26:43.:26:47.

spells. Also we have got some milder air said temperatures climbing to 10

:26:48.:26:51.

Celsius. It could also be quite windy. This is where the showers, in

:26:52.:26:58.

the afternoon, and into the evening. Some of them heavy, they may have

:26:59.:27:02.

hail mixed in and significant amounts of this through the evening

:27:03.:27:05.

as the temperatures dropped tomorrow night and it will mean some icy

:27:06.:27:10.

conditions out there. Here is our pressure pattern, low pressure

:27:11.:27:13.

across the British Isles turning our weather wet and windy but the low

:27:14.:27:17.

does not get anywhere, it sticks around and the significance of that

:27:18.:27:21.

means it a bring in colder air for the start of the week and

:27:22.:27:25.

temperatures will go down. We may be in for a cold snap but before that,

:27:26.:27:30.

you can see how unsettled it is. Rain showers for Monday and some

:27:31.:27:33.

cold nights with the risk of frost and some icy conditions.

:27:34.:27:37.

I think I will stay inside on Sunday. That is all for now, have a

:27:38.:27:41.

good weekend, goodbye.
