chilly old week, George. Rais thank you. That's all from the

:00:00.:00:00.

Clocking off in Corby. 900 jobs go as Solway announce it's closing its

:00:00.:00:14.

factory for good. It was shocking. It was a shock to everybody. Nobody

:00:15.:00:17.

thought it would shut compldtely. Hello and welcome to Monday's Look

:00:18.:00:20.

East. The report Kettering Hospital didn't want you to see. 43 drrors

:00:21.:00:24.

which lead to the death of teenager Victoria Harrison. We will be here

:00:25.:00:32.

later in the programme after decades of disappointment, Cambridgd United

:00:33.:00:36.

finally lift a trophy. And `t Luton Town, they are swapping headscarves

:00:37.:00:37.

for football scarves. First tonight, 900 jobs are to go in

:00:38.:01:02.

Corby as one of the town's biggest employers announces it will close

:01:03.:01:05.

down this Summer. Two weeks ago Solway Foods announced in would cut

:01:06.:01:09.

more than 500 jobs. But at lunchtime today, staff were told that the

:01:10.:01:12.

remaining 400 posts would also go. It's a huge blow for the town which

:01:13.:01:16.

already has one of the highdst rates of unemployment in the region. Our

:01:17.:01:19.

reporter Mike Cartwright is outside the factory now. And, Mike, you were

:01:20.:01:25.

actually there when the news broke. There has been a huge questhon over

:01:26.:01:28.

the future of this factory but nobody expected this news today You

:01:29.:01:34.

could sit on people's faces. They were stunned. Many emerged on

:01:35.:01:37.

mobiles telling their familx and friends the news. People have worked

:01:38.:01:41.

here for 30 years, help famhlies working together. But come the end

:01:42.:01:45.

of the summer, all the jobs will go. They filed from the factory moments

:01:46.:01:48.

after being told it was to close. They knew more than 500 had lost

:01:49.:01:54.

jobs here. Now all of them have We've just been told. So wh`t's your

:01:55.:01:59.

reaction to that? Well, of course, it's a shock. But I've taken

:02:00.:02:02.

voluntary redundancy so tod`y is actually my last day which hs very

:02:03.:02:05.

sad. People must be shocked, aren't they? Yeah, they are, totally. Did

:02:06.:02:08.

they think the factory might actually stay? Yes. They thought a

:02:09.:02:15.

solution would be sought. It was shocking. It was a shock to

:02:16.:02:18.

everybody. Nobody knew they were going to turn around and sax it was

:02:19.:02:21.

going to shut completely. They've asked for voluntary redundancy and

:02:22.:02:25.

people have put in for it. H haven't and I should have done maybd, and

:02:26.:02:29.

got out and got another job as soon as possible but it's frightdning.

:02:30.:02:33.

Yeah, they want to say they tried to get a buyer but nobody bought the

:02:34.:02:36.

factory and they are not getting any more products. So, we are hdre until

:02:37.:02:40.

the summer so that's about ht. The factory, which packs salad, was one

:02:41.:02:44.

of the largest employers in the town. Opened by Princess Anne in the

:02:45.:02:47.

'80s, three decades on, Solway Foods say the site must close. We have

:02:48.:02:51.

fully explored all the options available, they say.

:02:52.:02:57.

Handbrake. Come off the foot brake onto the accelerator. Until Friday,

:02:58.:03:04.

Sean Hall worked at Solway. He's walked straight into a new job. The

:03:05.:03:07.

trainer here helping youngsters learn new skills. Workers at Solway,

:03:08.:03:11.

he says, believed the factory had a strong future. The core staff have

:03:12.:03:17.

been here for more than 20 xears. They've done well. A lot of business

:03:18.:03:21.

has come out of the place. Then it was taken over and within 18 months,

:03:22.:03:25.

it's not viable so a lot of questions are being asked about how

:03:26.:03:29.

genuine it is. We haven't got no grounds to argue it really. A task

:03:30.:03:34.

force had tried to keep Solway Foods in Corby. But couldn't. It hs

:03:35.:03:37.

devastating. 913 people employed there. That's 913 families `ffected,

:03:38.:03:42.

so you can make the multiplx effect yourself. The workforce is loyal,

:03:43.:03:48.

hard`working. They have demonstrated that over many years to Solway. It's

:03:49.:03:52.

disappointing that Solway h`ven t been able to recognise the loyalty

:03:53.:03:56.

of the workforce here in Corby. For more than 500, today was thdir last

:03:57.:04:01.

day of work here. By the end of the summer, all of them, more than 00,

:04:02.:04:10.

will have gone. Members of the task force were surprised by tod`y's

:04:11.:04:13.

announcement and bitterly disappointed. They say they worked

:04:14.:04:17.

hard to try to keep them in this time. Unemployment has been creeping

:04:18.:04:22.

up in Corby. Clearly, there are jobs here. It will be difficult for any

:04:23.:04:25.

town to swallow more than 900 redundancies. Thanks very mtch,

:04:26.:04:30.

Mike. Let's go live to Westlinster and the MP for Corby Andy S`wford.

:04:31.:04:33.

You lobbied hard for this not to happen. But what we've now got is

:04:34.:04:40.

the worst case scenario, isn't it? Definitely. This is what we were

:04:41.:04:43.

trying to avoid with all thd hard work of the task force, the local

:04:44.:04:48.

partners and we were talking to the company in good faith and wd

:04:49.:04:51.

believed it might be possible to keep some jobs at Corby. And then

:04:52.:04:55.

the news came out a fortnight ago, 500 jobs. Today, just as thd

:04:56.:04:59.

consultation closes, they h`ve shocked everyone by saying the whole

:05:00.:05:04.

factory will close. I think there could be a different way forward and

:05:05.:05:07.

I'm incredibly disappointed. So you're telling me that you were

:05:08.:05:12.

genuinely shocked? You didn't think the writing was on the wall? They

:05:13.:05:18.

had two major contracts. We know they lost the biggest contr`ct a few

:05:19.:05:22.

weeks ago, the first big announcement. We met with l`st

:05:23.:05:26.

Monday. I talked of a company and they said they were looking to

:05:27.:05:29.

continue their other contract and in the long term, they could h`ve

:05:30.:05:33.

rebuilt the business. This hs really disappointing. Of course, it's

:05:34.:05:36.

particularly bad news for the families who are going to bd

:05:37.:05:40.

directly affected and all otr focus now has to be on helping people into

:05:41.:05:45.

new jobs. What kind of hope can you offer the workers and their families

:05:46.:05:49.

at home tonight thinking, in a few months, there won't be a job to go

:05:50.:05:55.

to? We were always doing two things with the task force, trying to save

:05:56.:05:58.

jobs and recognising, if jobs went, we had to support people so

:05:59.:06:02.

already, this week there is a jobs fair organised on Thursday. Just

:06:03.:06:06.

around the corner from the company. 30 jobs there, two major colpanies

:06:07.:06:13.

are going into the company with hundreds of vacancies betwedn them,

:06:14.:06:16.

and they are food companies, so people will have the relevant

:06:17.:06:20.

skills. Hopefully, they can find new jobs. I met the boy in a report

:06:21.:06:26.

there, was already found a new job. Unemployment in Corby is ond of the

:06:27.:06:31.

highest in the region. The National office of statistics say it is

:06:32.:06:37.

creeping up. I know you are hopeful but realistically, we are going to

:06:38.:06:39.

hundreds of more people join the dealt you, aren't we? `` dole

:06:40.:06:46.

queue. It is worrying for the workers and families. It shows

:06:47.:06:50.

what's happening across the region, ran the country, some parts are

:06:51.:06:53.

doing OK, the South of Engl`nd but, in Corby, we have very high youth

:06:54.:06:58.

unemployment and we have had this year, 160 more people on thd dole

:06:59.:07:03.

before the announcement. But we re working locally to attract

:07:04.:07:07.

investment. There are some jobs coming along. I hope people will

:07:08.:07:10.

come to the jobs fair, and hf we can support them through the task force,

:07:11.:07:14.

we will do our best. OK, th`nk you very much indeed. Kettering General

:07:15.:07:16.

Hospital has finally releasdd details of a catalogue of errors

:07:17.:07:20.

which led to a teenage girl bleeding to death. 17`year`old Victoria

:07:21.:07:23.

Harrison died after an appendix operation in 2012. The hosphtal

:07:24.:07:30.

carried out an investigation into her death but refused to publish the

:07:31.:07:33.

report, saying it could end`nger the mental health of staff. But a

:07:34.:07:39.

Freedom of Information requdst from the BBC has forced Kettering General

:07:40.:07:42.

to reveal details of 43 mistakes, oversights and errors. In a moment

:07:43.:07:51.

we'll be hearing from the hospital, but first this report from Neil

:07:52.:07:56.

Bradford. This is the Victoria Harris and her family remember. A

:07:57.:08:00.

teenager full of life and whth everything to live for. Last August,

:08:01.:08:05.

aged 17, she was admitted to Kettering General Hospital with

:08:06.:08:10.

appendicitis. A series of hospital blunders meant she never cale home.

:08:11.:08:17.

It just wasn't one mistake. It was 43 mistakes that started with the

:08:18.:08:20.

surgeon, right through to the nurse when she eventually died. The

:08:21.:08:27.

teenager suffered a damaged artery during the procedure. Surgeons had

:08:28.:08:33.

worked to stop the bleeding but not all nursing staff were made aware.

:08:34.:08:37.

Few formal observations werd recorded on the day of surgdry

:08:38.:08:40.

before nursing staff find Vhctoria unresponsive the following lorning.

:08:41.:08:46.

The hospital withheld details of the mistakes because managers fdared

:08:47.:08:49.

releasing them would have an impact on the mental health of the staff

:08:50.:08:54.

concerned. The BBC challengdd that under the Freedom of Inform`tion Act

:08:55.:08:57.

and today the hospital's internal enquiry has been released to the

:08:58.:09:03.

public. It reveals ten staff members were disciplined. There werd a total

:09:04.:09:07.

of 43 mistakes, errors and oversights. They included poor

:09:08.:09:11.

record`keeping, poor communhcation between staff and a failure to check

:09:12.:09:19.

Victoria's abdomen after surgery. And the list goes on with a string

:09:20.:09:22.

of inconsistencies, inaccur`cies and failures. There was no form`l pain

:09:23.:09:29.

assessment, vital signs werd not monitored. And there was no record

:09:30.:09:33.

of discussions with the famhly. Victoria's mother believes ht's

:09:34.:09:36.

important the public know what happened. We have a right to know

:09:37.:09:41.

what our hospitals are doing. If we are going into hospital, ard we

:09:42.:09:45.

going to come home? You know, they have a right to know. Patient groups

:09:46.:09:50.

say hospitals have a duty to be more transparent. Ideally, we wotld like

:09:51.:09:55.

to see them proactively discussing these incidents in public board

:09:56.:10:00.

meetings. As a real demonstration to the public that they serve that they

:10:01.:10:04.

are being open and honest and transparent and learning lessons to

:10:05.:10:09.

make things safer for all of us The hospital has since set up Vhctoria's

:10:10.:10:13.

Legacy. A programme of improvements to ensure the same mistakes are not

:10:14.:10:18.

made again. Victoria's family say it's important the public know the

:10:19.:10:20.

quality of the care they receive. So do the hospital feel thex got it

:10:21.:10:31.

wrong and should have released their report in the first place? @ short

:10:32.:10:35.

while ago, I put that questhon to Kettering's Director of Nursing and

:10:36.:10:44.

Quality, Clare Culpin. The decision wasn't made lightly. It was

:10:45.:10:49.

considered because the internal investigation describes every aspect

:10:50.:10:55.

of care and treatment that Victoria was given and we have to thhnk about

:10:56.:11:03.

protecting the dignity and respecting that patient. And

:11:04.:11:10.

thinking about the detail of that report on our staff, as well. In the

:11:11.:11:18.

words of Victoria's mother, though, she says we all have a right to know

:11:19.:11:24.

what our hospitals are doing. Her mother wanted that report ptblished.

:11:25.:11:34.

Absolutely. I agree. I agred that organisations, particularly

:11:35.:11:36.

hospitals, should be open and transparent. We are not dis`greeing

:11:37.:11:41.

with that. Why did it take ` BBC Freedom of information requdst to

:11:42.:11:45.

get you to publish this report, because the panel that conshdered it

:11:46.:11:49.

ruled that it was in the public interest? Well, what is in the

:11:50.:11:56.

public interest is that you are open and candid and transparent `bout

:11:57.:11:59.

what happened, which is exactly what we have done, what is in public

:12:00.:12:04.

interest is that you actually respond to a tragedy like the loss

:12:05.:12:09.

of Victoria. It was not a qtestion of not releasing it because we

:12:10.:12:14.

didn't want to share it. It is based on being a considered decishon

:12:15.:12:17.

because we actually felt th`t we had shared an awful lot of detahl and

:12:18.:12:22.

been very open around the f`ct that mistakes were made and errors were

:12:23.:12:26.

made and we have been very candid about that. Thank you very luch A

:12:27.:12:31.

man and a woman have been charged with stabbing two people in Wisbech

:12:32.:12:35.

at the weekend. The victims, two men, remain in a serious but stable

:12:36.:12:38.

condition. They were attackdd shortly after midnight on Stnday in

:12:39.:12:42.

Orange Grove. The area in the centre of the town was sealed off for a

:12:43.:12:46.

forensic examination. The ldader of Cambridgeshire County Counchl is

:12:47.:12:48.

quitting his post. Martin Ctrtis says he's going because of the

council's decision to move from a cabinet to a committee systdm of

he'll step down in May. Now it's over to Stewart and Susie for the

rest of the programme. still to come, and amazing ?53

And some wonderful scenes at Wembley, as Cambridge United

:13:26.:13:26.

celebrate winning the A question: what was the biggest

:13:27.:13:34.

airborne operation in World War II? If you said D`day, you would be

:13:35.:13:38.

wrong. The biggest in a single day happened nine months later. It was

:13:39.:13:42.

called Operation Varsity and it involved 40,000 troops. The

:13:43.:13:46.

objective ` securing a bridgehead over the Rhine. Today a service was

:13:47.:13:51.

held at Coggeshall in Essex to mark the anniversary. This report is from

:13:52.:14:00.

Alex Dunlop. Imagine this: Xou are strapped into a six tonne plywood

:14:01.:14:04.

glider, 28 soldiers crammed in the back. Four hours later, you will be

:14:05.:14:09.

to glide behind enemy lines. Survive that, and you will have to hit the

:14:10.:14:12.

ground, pick up your gun and start fighting. David Brooks did `ll of

:14:13.:14:19.

that and is here to tell thd tale. We saw the Rhine, which of course,

:14:20.:14:24.

is a very wide river, and there were smudges of fire around us, `nd

:14:25.:14:29.

several gliders got shot down. And 100 glider pilots were actu`lly

:14:30.:14:32.

killed, and that is why we're here today in of those pilots th`t we

:14:33.:14:38.

lost. It is poignant that the memorial to those menaces they

:14:39.:14:41.

stone's throw from the airfheld where some of those pilots took off

:14:42.:14:47.

60 years ago today. So willhngness to act, as much of their action

:14:48.:14:51.

that gives the state is that they should be remembered... Manx, of

:14:52.:14:58.

course, remember operation Larket Gardening, September 1934, the

:14:59.:15:06.

classic bridge too far. The viewer will remember Operation Varsity

:15:07.:15:09.

review be the most daring and successful airborne operation in

:15:10.:15:21.

history. The soldiers' job was to create a bridgehead to advance

:15:22.:15:24.

across the Rhine. It was dangerous, but it worked. Today, the Army Air

:15:25.:15:30.

Corps, still on active servhce in Afghanistan, organised the service

:15:31.:15:34.

and the Apache fly`past. Certainly through technology, we are `ble to

:15:35.:15:37.

protect ourselves more, but the fundamental basics are very much the

:15:38.:15:41.

same. We are still aviators, prepared to be soldiers on the

:15:42.:15:45.

ground, as they were, and they were soldiers on the ground. The pilot

:15:46.:15:50.

glider regiment no longer exists, but its memory and contribution to

:15:51.:15:52.

Allied victory in Europe is secured. In sport, great goals, great wins

:15:53.:16:01.

and day to remember at Wembley this weekend. Here's Tom.

:16:02.:16:04.

Good place to start. Some shlverware for non`league Cambridge Unhted who

:16:05.:16:08.

won the FA Trophy for the fhrst time. It ended a 45`year waht for

:16:09.:16:13.

victory in a cup competition. The U's hope their Wembley win will

:16:14.:16:16.

inspire them to a return to the Football League after nine xears

:16:17.:16:17.

away. Wembley! Wembley! Cambridge United

:16:18.:16:30.

fans were out in force yestdrday afternoon to see if their tdam could

:16:31.:16:33.

make it third time lucky Welbley Stadium. No promotion on offer this

:16:34.:16:37.

time, but silverware and ?50,00 prize. That combination will be

:16:38.:16:42.

music to their ears. I think they're the best team in the world, but who

:16:43.:16:47.

knows. I've been here twice before and got my heart broken. I don't

:16:48.:16:52.

want to do it again. Amber nation out in force today. That is what

:16:53.:16:56.

it's all about. They almost got off to a flyer inside four minutes.

:16:57.:17:02.

Despite struggling in the ldad below Cambridge, Gosport were out for the

:17:03.:17:05.

challenge, also having some early challenges. In the 39th mintte,

:17:06.:17:14.

though, Bird settle the nerves. Ryan Bird against the keeper! And United

:17:15.:17:21.

take the lead! And for the first time in three attempt, Unitdd are in

:17:22.:17:24.

front. After the break, Ryan Donaldson added goal number two and

:17:25.:17:28.

he was the right place at the right time to make it three zero. He could

:17:29.:17:32.

have had the rarest of Wembley hat`trick when a penalty was

:17:33.:17:36.

awarded. Luke Berry, however, slotted home from the spot. 4`0 the

:17:37.:17:43.

final score, and memories to savour forever. It's amazing. I can't

:17:44.:17:48.

explain how good it is. Adddd it to the rest of your footballing

:17:49.:17:52.

career? It is amazing. I can't even speak. I think we all deserve this,

:17:53.:17:59.

and hopefully, we can use it as a springboard for the rest of our

:18:00.:18:02.

season. If we can get back through the play`offs, it will do us good,

:18:03.:18:09.

but we've got a really tough line up now, want to make sure we are in the

:18:10.:18:13.

play`offs first of all. For a club that has laid a loss for thd last

:18:14.:18:19.

decade, prize of a hundred `nd ?50,000 would make a differdnce the

:18:20.:18:22.

promotion would you worth hhs weight in gold.

:18:23.:18:24.

Now, it's rare you ever see Chris Hughton as animated as this. The

:18:25.:18:28.

Norwich boss was quick to rdgain his composure. But he and the f`ns had

:18:29.:18:32.

just witnessed one of the goals of the season by Alex Tettey. @ 2` win

:18:33.:18:35.

over Sunderland handed them some breathing space in the Premher

:18:36.:18:38.

League. Norwich are seven points clear of the drop`zone with seven to

:18:39.:18:47.

play. It is vital for us pl`ying at home, winning 2`0, and the way we

:18:48.:18:53.

played today is huge for our team, and has brought us confidence as

:18:54.:18:55.

well. Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy admits

:18:56.:18:58.

this week's matches will go a long way to deciding their play`off fate.

:18:59.:19:02.

Town won 2`0 at Brighton, Slith and Murphy scoring, meaning thex're five

:19:03.:19:05.

points off the pace going into home games with play`off chasing Derby

:19:06.:19:07.

tomorrow night, then Nottingham Forest on Saturday. And thex sacked

:19:08.:19:11.

their manager today. For Late Kick Off tonight, I spoke to the Ipswich

:19:12.:19:14.

manager on the golf course `bout the club's progress despite the need to

:19:15.:19:18.

make huge cuts to the playing budget.

:19:19.:19:22.

I tell you what I thought when I came in 16 months ago. Make sure you

:19:23.:19:26.

get enough points to stay in the league. I didn't consider what I

would be doing the following season. That was the remix. At the start of

:19:30.:19:33.

this season, I thought, I h`ve a good squad, I thought we had a

:19:34.:19:38.

chance. And we still have, but we must make sure we stay therd. If you

:19:39.:19:42.

have had a bit more money available, you think that would have m`de a

:19:43.:19:47.

difference? But it wasn't. H know what my room it is. That thd gate.

:19:48.:19:53.

That's the job I've got. People say we haven't spent anything, but we've

:19:54.:19:58.

put ?5 million in this year, just to keep is where we are. We ard

:19:59.:20:03.

adhering to financial fair play I'm not saying everybody else is. In

:20:04.:20:10.

fact, I'm certain they aren't. So within those parameters, we've done

:20:11.:20:14.

well. You mention financial fair play. Is that why things have been

:20:15.:20:18.

cut back, or the owner wishhng to keep a lid on things, or a bit of

:20:19.:20:24.

both? That policy is therefore everybody, supposedly to add here

:20:25.:20:29.

too. Queens Park Rangers can have a huge fine, and the rest of them but

:20:30.:20:33.

we are sticking to it, and within that, we have done really wdll. If

:20:34.:20:38.

it doesn't happen this year, do you think you'll be under more pressure

:20:39.:20:43.

next year to deliver promothon? Listen, the longer you're in the

:20:44.:20:49.

job, the more pressure it bdcomes. But I do worry about that. H would

:20:50.:20:53.

do my job under whatever circumstances I'm doing it. I think

:20:54.:20:56.

what people underestimated the amount of pressure I put on myself,

:20:57.:21:02.

and I get people patting me on back saying doing your job. We mhght miss

:21:03.:21:07.

out on the play`offs, howevdr. I think we've got a chance thhs year,

:21:08.:21:11.

and still have, but to get hn those play`offs, and I `` if I don't think

:21:12.:21:21.

I can do it, there'd be no point me being here, and if Marcus doesn t

:21:22.:21:24.

think I can do it, there'd be no point in being here either. So we

:21:25.:21:28.

continue to try and prove otrselves. They may have had their

:21:29.:21:31.

international stars back, btt it couldn't prevent a second stccessive

:21:32.:21:33.

defeat for Northampton. Saints director of rugby Jim Mallinder

:21:34.:21:36.

insists they're "not down and out", despite losing top spot going down

:21:37.:21:38.

at Sale. More sport on the website, where you

:21:39.:21:42.

can find tonight's team news ahead of Southend's league match with

Oxford. Thank you very much.

About 100 Asian women were `t Luton Town this weekend for the g`me

:21:49.:21:52.

against Chester. It was part of a campaign called "From Headscarves to

:21:53.:22:01.

Football Scarves". The club is trying to persuade more Asi`n and

:22:02.:22:04.

female supporters to go to games. Chettan Partak from the BBC's Asian

:22:05.:22:09.

Network went with them. For most of these women, who lived

:22:10.:22:12.

locally, it's the first timd they've been anywhere near a football match.

:22:13.:22:18.

They're coming to watch en lasse. I'm nervous. I don't know what's

:22:19.:22:21.

going to happen. I know will be very loud. The crowd is quite

:22:22.:22:26.

intimidating. You always here about football hooligans, but bec`use I

:22:27.:22:32.

think there is a large group of us, I think you'll be OK. Today is about

:22:33.:22:39.

these young ladies experiencing something of a haven't in the past,

:22:40.:22:43.

and a lot of them live quitd nearby, and they often see the supporters

:22:44.:22:46.

going up and down the streets, but today, they are going to go to the

:22:47.:22:50.

ground. I think it is about the misconceptions that this colmunity

:22:51.:22:53.

has about football, but also what football supporters have about this

:22:54.:22:57.

community, and I hope will be a real sharing experience. Same echo its

:22:58.:23:00.

really important to have people from the Asian community here, bdcause

:23:01.:23:03.

commercially, they form a significant part of the demographic

:23:04.:23:06.

of Luton, and the numbers attending a relatively small. We want to

:23:07.:23:10.

increase that because we want to increase our revenues. It is good

:23:11.:23:13.

commercially and socially. We want to achieve a better demographic mix.

:23:14.:23:18.

The match sees top of the t`ble Luton town face Chester. Despite the

:23:19.:23:22.

novelty of the experience, lost seem to be having a good time, and have

:23:23.:23:27.

had no problem fitting in. Ht's a really great buys an atmosphere Is

:23:28.:23:33.

actually quite unifying. It was boring at the beginning. But it is

:23:34.:23:38.

pretty cool. The atmosphere is awesome, and everyone is chdering.

:23:39.:23:44.

They are singing tunes, it's quite good. If their first time at the

:23:45.:23:49.

football today, and they bedn a little bit confused about some of

:23:50.:23:51.

the songs they have heard. We've been teaching them the words. The

:23:52.:23:55.

organisers hope seems like this will become less uncommon, and won this

:23:56.:23:59.

match to become one of many for these funds. `` fans.

:24:00.:24:08.

Very chilly overnight, wasn't it? It was. The average lowest temperature

:24:09.:24:15.

this time of year should be three Celsius.

:24:16.:24:17.

As you can see, last night got a lot colder than that. `5 in Norfolk and

:24:18.:24:25.

in many other places, below freezing. So a cold, frosty start to

:24:26.:24:30.

the day today. We have enjoxed a lot of sunshine. This frontal sxstem and

:24:31.:24:34.

the cloud and rain associatdd are still down to the south`west, so we

:24:35.:24:37.

saw a bit more about pushing through, but it stayed dry `nd lots

:24:38.:24:41.

of us enjoyed some sunshine. They are skies to start today, btt

:24:42.:24:44.

eventually, thicker cloud and rain pushes in from the south`west. Most

:24:45.:24:49.

of it is light and patchy, but we can't rule out some heavy btrsts,

:24:50.:24:53.

and even as I speak, there hs some uncertainty as to how far e`st this

:24:54.:24:55.

rain will get. So a good part of rain will get. So a good part of

:24:56.:25:00.

Norfolk and Suffolk could stage I overnight. Lowest temperatures by

:25:01.:25:03.

the end of the night underndath the clearer, drier skies are down to

:25:04.:25:06.

around two or three Celsius, so there might be a ground lost in some

:25:07.:25:11.

places. Elsewhere, if there is an earlier ground frost, it will be

:25:12.:25:15.

gone as the temperatures rise as the rain spreading. Tomorrow, a front

:25:16.:25:20.

brings thicker cloud and rahn, comes to a halt, and then starts to pull

:25:21.:25:24.

away again to the west. So the best of any brightness and sunshhne first

:25:25.:25:27.

thing in parts of Norfolk and Suffolk. Elsewhere, cloudy day with

:25:28.:25:31.

outbreaks of rain. At the France does the pull away to the wdst, it

:25:32.:25:34.

should start to take the thhcker cloud and rain with it. So we should

:25:35.:25:38.

see brighter skies from the east. Temperatures inland could gdt up to

:25:39.:25:45.

nine or 10 degrees. Where wd keep the thicker cloud and rain for

:25:46.:25:50.

longest, and along the coast, with onshore wind, temperatures will

:25:51.:25:54.

struggle up to about seven or eight degrees. Through the afternoon, the

:25:55.:25:57.

last of the thicker cloud and rain clears, with a view showers

:25:58.:26:02.

following. A largely dry end to the day. Into the middle of the week,

:26:03.:26:06.

Wednesday and Thursday, hopdfully some fine and dry weather, but those

:26:07.:26:12.

the chance of showers on both days. On Friday, a good deal of

:26:13.:26:16.

uncertainty, but as it stands, another cold day, perhaps more cloud

:26:17.:26:21.

and outbreaks of rain. Looks like a frost on Tuesday and Wednesday

:26:22.:26:23.

night. Thank you very much. If you took part in Sport Rdlief at

:26:24.:26:27.

the weekend, well done. ?53 million pounds raised so far. The atmosphere

:26:28.:26:34.

in Norwich, as I started up the Sport Relief raised there, was

:26:35.:26:39.

fantastic. Your daughter finished it? Yes, she's only little. So we'll

:26:40.:26:42.

leave you tonight with some pictures, including a speci`l video

:26:43.:26:45.

made for Sport Relief by Dance Matters, a dance school in

Cambridgeshire. Good night.
