Hello and welcome to Look East. In the programme tonight: Did these men

:00:07.:00:14.

fear for their lives or were they willing accomplices? The judge sums

:00:15.:00:18.

up in the trial of two men who are accused of assisting Peterborough

:00:19.:00:24.

serial killer Joanna Dennehy. A life transformed by birdsong. A

:00:25.:00:30.

treatment for tinnitus as growing numbers of children are diagnosed.

:00:31.:00:36.

Later: No end in sight to the soggy weather. The experts said we will

:00:37.:00:42.

have to get used to seems like this. We have had four incidents where

:00:43.:00:45.

motorists have driven into floodwater. And how to make your

:00:46.:00:52.

debut for England. Saints player Luther Burrell gets off to a

:00:53.:01:04.

fantastic start in the Six Nations. First, the words of the judge in the

:01:05.:01:10.

trial of two men accused of assisting the Peterborough serial

:01:11.:01:15.

killer Joanna Dennehy. Summing up, Mr Justice Spencer told the jury, if

:01:16.:01:19.

you believe the men feared for their lives, they should be cleared of any

:01:20.:01:25.

wrongdoing. Gary Stretch and Leslie Layton denied being willing

:01:26.:01:28.

accomplices during the killing spree last spring when Joanna Dennehy

:01:29.:01:32.

murdered three men and tried to kill two more. Our correspondent joins us

:01:33.:01:40.

from Cambridge Crown Court. As this case reaches its closing

:01:41.:01:46.

stages, this was the day the judge, Mr Justice Spencer, went over the

:01:47.:01:51.

details and the evidence for the benefit of the jury. He said, do not

:01:52.:01:57.

allow yourselves to be influenced by in motion. You must put aside all

:01:58.:02:01.

feelings of sympathy and of prejudice. The judge told the jury

:02:02.:02:07.

is, cuatro men and eight women, that the prosecution had sought to prove

:02:08.:02:11.

that Gary Stretch and Leslie Layton were willing participants in helping

:02:12.:02:16.

Joanna Dennehy in the disposal of the bodies of her three victims

:02:17.:02:21.

They were all stabbed in the Hajj during her 10`day killing spree But

:02:22.:02:25.

he said the defence case was that the men were acting under duress.

:02:26.:02:31.

They say you should not underestimate the evil and malign

:02:32.:02:34.

influence of Joanna Dennehy. The judge told the jury as if they

:02:35.:02:38.

believed the men were in fear of death or serious harm they could

:02:39.:02:42.

claim they were acting under duress and should be found not guilty.

:02:43.:02:47.

Would a reasonable person placed in the defenders' situation have been

:02:48.:02:52.

driven to act in the way they did? The men have not given evidence in

:02:53.:02:58.

their own defence. The victim was' bodies were all found in ditches

:02:59.:03:04.

last March. Joanna Dennehy then stabbed two men in random attacks,

:03:05.:03:12.

but they survived. Leslie Layton denies perverting the course of

:03:13.:03:16.

justice and two counts preventing the lawful burial of two victims.

:03:17.:03:22.

The judge said the juror 's had plenty of evidence on Joanna

:03:23.:03:28.

Dennehy. He said, she could be charming and pleasant, but there was

:03:29.:03:34.

a much darker side to her. She has already admitted three murders and

:03:35.:03:39.

two attempted murders and summing up will resume at Cambridge Caravan

:03:40.:03:43.

Court tomorrow morning. The jury is expected to go out sometime in the

:03:44.:03:50.

afternoon to consider their verdict. `` Cambridge Crown Court. The Labour

:03:51.:03:55.

Party has launched an investigation following allegations of vote

:03:56.:03:57.

rigging in Luton. It follows growing concern that

:03:58.:04:02.

dozens of new Labour members could have been signed up in an attempt to

:04:03.:04:06.

influence the outcome of local party elections. It is known as membership

:04:07.:04:11.

packing. According to the Luton South MP, Gavin Shuker, he says

:04:12.:04:19.

democracy no longer exists in his constituency.

:04:20.:04:22.

Headteacher's please and crime commission has been a Labour member

:04:23.:04:27.

since the age of 15. Now he is concerned candidates like his deputy

:04:28.:04:32.

are not being reselected. He suspects foul play. You can see

:04:33.:04:37.

evidence of it. It is the underlying cause behind the two councillors we

:04:38.:04:45.

have seen being deselected. My deputy and Councillor Robin Harris,

:04:46.:04:49.

the council finance chief. That to me suggests there is something

:04:50.:04:57.

amiss. Luton Labour's investigation is underway. Looking for evidence of

:04:58.:05:02.

people joining the party to influence elections. Luton's MPs I

:05:03.:05:06.

the only two Labour have in the whole of the Eastern region. The

:05:07.:05:11.

council is Labour majority. This is an important part of the world for

:05:12.:05:17.

the party. Could this be damaging? It is clear membership packing has a

:05:18.:05:21.

direct effect on those people who get elected. In some parts of my

:05:22.:05:26.

constituency around local government selections, for example, the person

:05:27.:05:34.

who gets elected is not the best person necessarily, it is whoever

:05:35.:05:37.

has signed up enough members. Others in the party say it sounds like sour

:05:38.:05:43.

grapes. In all parties when you have a hotly contested election, when

:05:44.:05:47.

rival candidates will get their supporters along to a meeting to

:05:48.:05:51.

vote for them, it has happened for years and the people who lose do not

:05:52.:05:56.

like losing and they complain about things being undemocratic. That is

:05:57.:06:00.

part of the hurly`burly of politics. But it does not stack up

:06:01.:06:07.

says Ollie Martins and he hopes the investigation will uncover why

:06:08.:06:13.

capable councillors are being deselected.

:06:14.:06:16.

Our political reporter has been following this story closely. You

:06:17.:06:21.

have spoken to the local party. What did they say? They told me the

:06:22.:06:27.

investigation began today and was commissioned by the general

:06:28.:06:30.

secretary of the National party It is not clear what he is looking into

:06:31.:06:35.

other than these allegations of membership packing. One option open

:06:36.:06:40.

to him is to place the constituency into special measures which would

:06:41.:06:44.

effectively wrestle control away from the local party and place it in

:06:45.:06:49.

the hands of the National party It is not clear whether that would go

:06:50.:06:54.

any way to solving the problems This is deeply embarrassing for

:06:55.:06:58.

Labour. Absolutely and it has revealed pretty deep and bitter

:06:59.:07:04.

wounds in some areas. Some people say it is a serious problem and some

:07:05.:07:09.

people say it is not a problem and refute the claims. The regional

:07:10.:07:13.

party on Friday said it would be happy with the way the selections

:07:14.:07:17.

have been conducted. But that combined with the resignation of

:07:18.:07:23.

this very experienced counsellor in charge of the finance budget weeks

:07:24.:07:27.

before the budget is due to be revealed is very embarrassing for

:07:28.:07:32.

the party and this investigation is not clear whether it will heal those

:07:33.:07:38.

wounds. An inquest has begun into the death of a pensioner from

:07:39.:07:42.

Northampton killed in a house fire that was started by her son in law.

:07:43.:07:47.

75`year`old Mavis Clift died in the fire on New Year's Day in 2008. Her

:07:48.:07:52.

son`in`law was charged with murder but died on remand in prison.

:07:53.:07:57.

It was a ferocious house fire that took the life of an innocent

:07:58.:08:03.

pensioner. Just hours before, 75`year`old Mavis Clift had been

:08:04.:08:08.

celebrating the start of 2008 with her family. As they slept her home

:08:09.:08:14.

was deliberately set alight. The man responsible was Paul Barber, the

:08:15.:08:18.

estranged husband of Mavis's daughter Susan who had moved back in

:08:19.:08:23.

with her parents to get away from him. For eight months since their

:08:24.:08:28.

split he had harassed and subjected her to abuse. On New Year's Day he

:08:29.:08:34.

drove to the house in Northampton and poured petrol through the

:08:35.:08:40.

letterbox. After it was ignited the fire spread rapidly, trapping the

:08:41.:08:44.

family upstairs. Firefighters found Mavis Clift's body in the bedroom at

:08:45.:08:49.

the front of the terraced house Paul Barbara was arrested and

:08:50.:08:54.

charged with her murder, but died in March, 2009, at Woodhill prison in

:08:55.:09:00.

Milton Keynes while awaiting trial. It later emerged Susan and her

:09:01.:09:05.

family had contacted police more than 32 times about his behaviour

:09:06.:09:11.

between March and September, 20 7. It is now acknowledged there were

:09:12.:09:14.

serious failings in the way the police and other agencies had dealt

:09:15.:09:19.

with the case. Today the start of an inquest into the death of Mavis

:09:20.:09:35.

Clift the jury were told it is not their job to find people guilty or

:09:36.:09:38.

innocent, but to establish how she died and what the circumstances were

:09:39.:09:40.

surrounding her death. The hearing is expected to last 25 days.

:09:41.:09:42.

A police officer from Stevenage has been given 12 months in prison for

:09:43.:09:46.

corruption. 35`year`old Erfan Hussein, an officer with

:09:47.:09:49.

Hertfordshire police, stopped speeding drivers and ordered them to

:09:50.:09:56.

hand over a fine which he then kept. Assessment of birdsong has

:09:57.:09:59.

transformed the lives of a young boy suffering from tonight is.

:10:00.:10:04.

11`year`old Leo Bamford from Luton suffered so badly that it kept him

:10:05.:10:09.

awake at night. But the treatment from Addenbrooke's Hospital means

:10:10.:10:15.

his condition is now improving. Imagine if whenever there was

:10:16.:10:18.

silence and you try to concentrate you could hear this.

:10:19.:10:24.

It is what 11`year`old Leo suffers from, constant tinnitus. My one is a

:10:25.:10:30.

high`pitched sound that continues for a long time. It does not stop.

:10:31.:10:39.

When do you hear it? Every time Does it ever go away? No. How does

:10:40.:10:48.

that affect you? If I do not get an night's sleep, in the morning I will

:10:49.:10:54.

not concentrate. He now relies on this sound box which makes a noise

:10:55.:10:59.

at night which masks the ringing in his ears and let him sleep right

:11:00.:11:06.

through. You turn the sound up and then you put it onto this. Which

:11:07.:11:14.

sound do you use? I use the bird sound. Those who suffer here a

:11:15.:11:20.

variety of sounds in the inner ear. For some people it is a ringing for

:11:21.:11:26.

some it is a buzzing. It is thought around one in 100 are affected so

:11:27.:11:31.

badly it causes them real distress. At the moment there is no known

:11:32.:11:36.

cure. Leo drew this picture when he was eight. It helped his doctor

:11:37.:11:41.

identified the problem. At Addenbrooke's Hospital they are

:11:42.:11:45.

seeing more children with senators. It might be that there are more

:11:46.:11:49.

children with the problem, but it might also be there is a greater

:11:50.:11:54.

understanding this can be a problem amongst parents and GPs and ear nose

:11:55.:12:00.

and throat surgeons and audiologists. Their ICDs and local

:12:01.:12:07.

radio stations that play birdsong, but Leo's life has been transformed

:12:08.:12:11.

by this device, which gives him something many of us take for

:12:12.:12:17.

granted, a good night's sleep. Two people are being treated in hospital

:12:18.:12:22.

tonight after a chemical spill at a school in Northampton.

:12:23.:12:26.

150 staff and pupils at Greenfields School and Sports College were all

:12:27.:12:31.

safely evacuated this morning. Due to the nature of the chemical spill

:12:32.:12:37.

we have had the fire brigade, police and ambulance. This is a school for

:12:38.:12:41.

people with severe disability, so we have had to get the children home

:12:42.:12:45.

which is quite an operation. Tendring District Council and has

:12:46.:12:49.

now apologised to his colleagues in a letter.

:12:50.:12:56.

Still to come: An amazing debut in the six Nations full Luther Burrell.

:12:57.:13:00.

Plus, the remarkable sound of a pianist

:13:01.:13:09.

with one hand. The Environment Agency has been

:13:10.:13:18.

defending itself today over complaints about its handling of the

:13:19.:13:22.

flooding crisis in Somerset. And closer to home, the Agency has

:13:23.:13:25.

repeated its assertion that it cannot afford to defend all of the

:13:26.:13:30.

areas prone to flooding. As you can see from this weather map, produced

:13:31.:13:34.

by The Met Office, parts of Essex have been deluged in recent weeks,

:13:35.:13:37.

and today many areas around the river Chelmer are still under flood

:13:38.:13:40.

water. So, what can be done here? Alex Dunlop has tonight's special

:13:41.:13:46.

report. When a site like this or this

:13:47.:13:52.

prompts a weary sigh, you know this is an issue which will not go away

:13:53.:13:56.

soon. In Essex, some drivers braved floodwaters. More than half a dozen

:13:57.:13:59.

had to be rescued from their vehicles. I would really ask

:14:00.:14:04.

motorists, stop and look at water, and think can you get through it?

:14:05.:14:08.

The fact you have stopped indicate you probably can't. Turn around and

:14:09.:14:13.

go another way. Meanwhile, in Cambridgeshire, this farmer says the

:14:14.:14:15.

flood water is threatening to ruin his livelihood and that of others.

:14:16.:14:22.

If we get a larger flood or more rain, the site will flood. It is

:14:23.:14:30.

just absolutely common sense. The weather has been exceptional. Part

:14:31.:14:33.

of the fans have seen three times the average rainfall for January.

:14:34.:14:37.

Because of this rapidly changing Atlantic pattern, there is no time

:14:38.:14:41.

for the water to drain away, so you end up with one lot of water falling

:14:42.:14:46.

on the soil to keep it saturated and the next lot of rain comes through,

:14:47.:14:49.

and it can't go anywhere but run straight up into the rivers drains,

:14:50.:14:53.

and cause the stress on the water management systems. Long`term

:14:54.:14:57.

solutions are planned. This weekend, the Ireland agency showed off a ?28

:14:58.:15:01.

million defence scheme for Great Yarmouth. Another is on the cards

:15:02.:15:04.

babes which. But today, the agency chairman said there is no bottomless

:15:05.:15:10.

purse. We could face a stark choice Dashti protect town or country from

:15:11.:15:14.

flooding. How do you decide whether to build fences and where to

:15:15.:15:18.

prioritise? Recently, the drive has been around protecting prebuilt

:15:19.:15:22.

property, but making those kind of decisions, we are also mindful of

:15:23.:15:26.

the commercial benefits defence schemes can bring, not only

:15:27.:15:29.

protecting properties but also jobs. Some experts say which is that back

:15:30.:15:34.

and take the long view, and it is not good news. Since the last ice

:15:35.:15:38.

age, written has actually seesawed so that Scotland has been rising and

:15:39.:15:44.

East Anglia has sunk by several millimetres per year. Scotland is

:15:45.:15:48.

still rising and East Anglia is still sinking. Is a noticeable in

:15:49.:15:52.

our lifetimes? There is a measurable change every year, and that is

:15:53.:15:57.

making the local sea level rise and making that more of a problem in

:15:58.:16:01.

East Anglia than elsewhere in the country. Ultimately, it is

:16:02.:16:04.

politicians who designed where our defences go. They are about to

:16:05.:16:09.

announce next year's flood protection budget. The government

:16:10.:16:12.

engineers and environmentalists acknowledge that some places may

:16:13.:16:15.

have to be sacrificed so that others can be saved.

:16:16.:16:18.

A wealthy businessman from Norfolk is being touted tonight as the next

:16:19.:16:21.

chairman of the education watchdog Ofsted. The speculation was

:16:22.:16:25.

triggered by the removal of the current chairman Sally Morgan. That

:16:26.:16:29.

decision, by the Education Secretary Michael Gove, has led to claims of

:16:30.:16:34.

cronyism. The first name connected with the vacancy is Theodore Agnew.

:16:35.:16:39.

He is the founder of a chain of new academy schools in Norfolk and

:16:40.:16:48.

Suffolk and a Tory supporter. He is little highly influential, and

:16:49.:16:55.

he founded the Inspiration Trust, which runs seven academy schools

:16:56.:16:58.

across Norfolk. Now he is also one of the front runners to become the

:16:59.:17:02.

new head of Ofsted. The son of a Norfolk farmer, Mr Agnew was a Tory

:17:03.:17:06.

party donor and in 2010, he advised Michael Gove, with whom he is a keen

:17:07.:17:13.

supporter. He is a most remarkable man, and he has come into education

:17:14.:17:19.

with a real mission to raise educational standards. It is the

:17:20.:17:22.

only job he wanted to do in governments, and he is making a

:17:23.:17:26.

difference. The Ofsted jobs available because Michael Gove has

:17:27.:17:30.

ousted the current occupant, Labour peer Baroness Morgan. She has called

:17:31.:17:35.

the decision politically motivated. Like Mr Gove, Mr Agnew is a firm

:17:36.:17:39.

believer in the academy system and strong leadership in schools. That

:17:40.:17:43.

goes to the heart of the problem. Good leadership in schools is what

:17:44.:17:46.

tends them around, and that is what I am absolutely focused on in our

:17:47.:17:51.

trust, that we will have really good leaders, and that is what will lift

:17:52.:17:55.

the standards. With the prospect of someone so close to government

:17:56.:17:59.

heading Ofsted, that has not done down well with teachers, and their

:18:00.:18:03.

union said it would oppose his appointment. The appointment of

:18:04.:18:07.

someone like Theodore Agnew raises very serious concerns about how

:18:08.:18:10.

independent Ofsted will continue to be. There are already concerns about

:18:11.:18:16.

how it operates, but to put in someone so closely linked with

:18:17.:18:18.

government really does raise questions about whether it cannot

:18:19.:18:22.

break effectively in an independent manner. So far, Mr Agnew has not

:18:23.:18:26.

commented on the speculation about the Ofsted role, but for many, his

:18:27.:18:30.

closeness to Mr Gove and his conservative credentials mean he is

:18:31.:18:32.

very much a front runner. Right, let's have a look at the

:18:33.:18:36.

sport. If you watched the rugby this weekend, you will know the name of

:18:37.:18:39.

Luther Burrell. Yes, the Northampton centre played a starring role in the

:18:40.:18:43.

Six Nations epic in Paris. Watching the game for us was Tom Williams.

:18:44.:18:46.

Indeed. As debuts go, it was a heartbreaking

:18:47.:18:50.

one for Northampton Saints' Luther Burrell, in the Six Nations on

:18:51.:18:52.

Saturday. He's received widespread praise helping England launch an

:18:53.:18:55.

astonishing comeback from 16`3 down, scoring under the posts, only to be

:18:56.:18:59.

cruelly denied as France scored the match`winning try, two minutes from

:19:00.:19:10.

time. From cold nights playing for Rotherham at Sedgley Park to an

:19:11.:19:13.

England debut in the Calder another Stade de France. Luther Burrell's

:19:14.:19:18.

rise to the red Rose has attracted plenty of headlines, but there was

:19:19.:19:22.

no room for romance in Paris. The French flair was back. England were

:19:23.:19:29.

in trouble. At half`time, it couldn't come soon enough. Luther

:19:30.:19:33.

regrouped alongside his team`mates, and within minutes, he was living

:19:34.:19:36.

the dream, running under the posts to give England and unlike the

:19:37.:19:39.

lead. Few had heard of Luther Burrell when he signed a few years

:19:40.:19:44.

ago. He failed to secure a premiership first`team place, and

:19:45.:19:46.

had even been loaned out to championship clubs, but the Saints

:19:47.:19:51.

thought he was worth something. It proved a wise investment. Watching

:19:52.:19:54.

back home, a former team`mate who had watched England beat the French

:19:55.:19:59.

during the 90s. He was one of many impressed by his turnaround in

:20:00.:20:04.

fortunes. He did what has he has been doing well all season. He took

:20:05.:20:07.

the ball, had a great physical presence, did not look fazed at all.

:20:08.:20:11.

I have no doubt this will be his only cap. Sadly, the dream was not

:20:12.:20:16.

to last. A late change saw him move to the wing, and England took

:20:17.:20:20.

advantage of the defensive confusion. It was a cruel and to an

:20:21.:20:24.

unforgiving match. We are in that game, we have a few phases together,

:20:25.:20:27.

we played well, we made a couple of errors, we didn't go off to the gate

:20:28.:20:32.

is the start, but we are very disappointed. On the flip side,

:20:33.:20:35.

France were fantastic. They really came at us, and fair play to them

:20:36.:20:39.

for getting a try at the end. It just shows you can't shut off before

:20:40.:20:45.

80 minutes. A frenetic finish to a memorable match, but an unlucky

:20:46.:20:46.

loser. Now to football, and Norwich, along

:20:47.:20:50.

with Newcastle, have been charged by the FA for failing to control their

:20:51.:20:53.

players during last week's Premier League match. Bradley Johnson and

:20:54.:20:56.

Loic Remy were both sent off after a scuffle involving several players.

Johnson's ban was overturned. The clubs have until 6pm on Wednesday to

respond to the charge. Now from one scrap to another, and

:21:05.:21:08.

City's fight for survival. The bare facts make pretty grim reading. In

:21:09.:21:11.

24 league games, Norwich have scored 19 times ` less than a goal a game.

:21:12.:21:18.

They've failed to score at all on nine occasions. In the two games

:21:19.:21:22.

against Cardiff this season, they've had a whopping 58 shots, scoring

:21:23.:21:29.

just once. 27 of those efforts came at Cardiff on Saturday, with Robert

:21:30.:21:32.

Snodgrass scoring after just five minutes but in just 80 seconds after

:21:33.:21:36.

the break, the home side turned the game on its head.

:21:37.:21:38.

just once. 27 of those efforts came at Craig Bellamy with the first.

:21:39.:21:42.

Kenwyne Jones made it 2`1. Norwich came agonisingly close to snatching

:21:43.:21:45.

a deserved equaliser but defeat means they've slipped to 15th, with

:21:46.:21:50.

just one win in nine. Two points clear of the drop zone. I don't

winner. Their goalkeeper had a good day, but if we make mistakes like we

did, we have got to be scoring goals, and we are finding that at

:22:13.:22:14.

moment. The transfer window might have

:22:15.:22:17.

closed but many of our teams with smaller budgets are counting the

:22:18.:22:20.

days before the loan window re`opens. MK Dons need a new striker

:22:21.:22:23.

after going 324 minutes without a goal. They've lost their last three

:22:24.:22:26.

games including Saturday's 1`0 defeat against Tranmere. The

:22:27.:22:31.

manager's desperate for more firepower in a bid to make the

:22:32.:22:36.

play`offs. Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy praised

:22:37.:22:39.

David McGoldrick after he scored the only goal in Saturday's win over

:22:40.:22:42.

Bolton. The striker converted a penalty ` his 15th of the season `

:22:43.:22:46.

keeping Ipswich in the Championship play`off race.

:22:47.:22:49.

And Paula Radcliffe is targeting one final appearance at the London

:22:50.:22:53.

Marathon. She's 40 now. The Bedford runner withdrew from the London

:22:54.:22:56.

Olympics because of injury but she says she probably only ask her foot

:22:57.:22:59.

to do one more marathon, which she hopes might be London next year.

come on the breakfast show the day is new. It is a new Day dawning, and

:23:52.:23:56.

Thank you. It hasn't been a bad day. Plus three times, with the

:23:57.:24:00.

winds gusting. But a great deal of sunshine, especially in the east.

:24:01.:24:04.

More cloud in the West, as the weather front moves slowly towards

us, but it still has a way to go. We start fine and dry with some clear

:24:10.:24:12.

spells, but eventually that pushes in from the West. Most of it light

:24:13.:24:16.

and patchy, though we cannot rule out the odd heavy burst. Behind

down to two Celsius or even lower in some spots. The potential for icy

patches for some of us and a bit of frost, but not everywhere. The rain

:24:34.:24:40.

perhaps holds on until first light. Then tomorrow, the weather front

:24:41.:24:44.

pulls away, taking the last of the rain with it. There's the area of

low pressure brings some wet and windy weather. More about that in a

:24:48.:24:52.

minute, but tomorrow, the between two systems, and not a bad day.

:24:53.:24:57.

Largely fine and dry. We are likely to see a few showers moving

:24:58.:25:01.

through, but for most of us a dry day with some brightness and

:25:02.:25:03.

sunshine at times. Temperatures not doing too badly, up to around eight

:25:04.:25:09.

Celsius in some places, that is 46 Fahrenheit, so close, it not above

average for the time of year. We start with light winds, but by the

afternoon, a moderate to fresh southerly, so quite blustery

:25:20.:25:23.

afternoon. Any showers will rattle through quite quickly in the second

:25:24.:25:26.

half of the day. We finished largely fine and dry, give or take one or

:25:27.:25:31.

two showers. But Tuesday night, later on, and into Wednesday

:25:32.:25:35.

morning, we expect some wet and windy weather to arrive. The winds

:25:36.:25:41.

are strong, perhaps gale force at time around the coast, with gusts of

:25:42.:25:46.

around 50 miles an hour. That the moment, the strongest winds are

:25:47.:25:50.

expected during the early hours of Wednesday morning and afternoon.

:25:51.:25:53.

Wednesday of self, as well as the wind I mentioned and rain, it is

:25:54.:25:57.

likely to be heavier, and Babs Jaya slots before some more heavy rain

:25:58.:26:00.

later in the day. A pretty awful day, and one we are watching. More

:26:01.:26:04.

details tomorrow. Hopefully by Thursday, that really wet and windy

:26:05.:26:09.

weather will be out of the way. A quieter day, still quite blustery,

:26:10.:26:14.

but the Windies is to a moderate fresh south`westerly, and Thursday

:26:15.:26:17.

is looking largely fine and dry with just a scattering of showers. Friday

:26:18.:26:22.

is looking dry, lighter winds still, although we are watching an area of

low pressure at the moment. It should stay to the south, keeping

the rain there. We will keep you posted. Thank you very much.

Before we go, a quick mention about tonight's Inside Out.

:26:34.:26:35.

It features a remarkable musician called Nicholas McCarthy from

Colchester. Nicholas is a very gifted pianist, even though he only

OK, you can put me down.
