on the BBC News Channel. I'll be back with the late news at 10pm.

:00:00.:00:00.

Now, Good evening. Special "amnesty bins"

:00:00.:00:20.

have been installed at the Sixfields football stadium in Northampton to

:00:21.:00:22.

try to stop fans taking smoke grenades, flares or fireworks into

:00:23.:00:25.

the ground. Nationally, there's a growing trend for so`called "pyros",

:00:26.:00:28.

which are widely used on thd Continent. The police say it's

:00:29.:00:31.

against the law, and want f`ns to bin their flares with no qudstions

:00:32.:00:37.

asked. The away team arriving at Shxfields

:00:38.:00:40.

today. Most football games `re friendly, but increasingly `cross

:00:41.:00:42.

the country fans light fireworks and flares in stands. Some even throw

:00:43.:00:49.

them onto the pitch. I think the danger of flares is massive, because

:00:50.:00:52.

it is a chemical reaction, so there's a chance of burns, smoke

:00:53.:00:54.

inhalation. There's panic alongst the fans who might find thelselves

:00:55.:01:00.

surrounded by smoke, which can be upsetting for some. This afternoon,

:01:01.:01:06.

police reminded fans of the dangers. They were also warned that taking

:01:07.:01:09.

fireworks into a stadium is a criminal offence. Anyone carrying

:01:10.:01:13.

pyrotechnics was urged to h`nd them in. They can get rid of thel. The

:01:14.:01:18.

police won't take any action with anything that is found in the bins.

:01:19.:01:21.

They'll be thrown away and discarded. We will see it as a

:01:22.:01:25.

positive because they won't be going into the ground, and hopefully it

:01:26.:01:28.

will avoid any youngsters gdtting into trouble later on. They think it

:01:29.:01:32.

is fun, really, and it is not, it is dangerous. I think it is a good idea

:01:33.:01:37.

because it is a dangerous thing bringing in flares, especially when

:01:38.:01:40.

you are bringing children whth you. It could be potentially

:01:41.:01:44.

life`threatening. The initi`tive will carry on for the next three

:01:45.:01:52.

games. There've been calls to improve a

:01:53.:01:55.

road in Norfolk, after a wolan died following a three car collision

:01:56.:01:58.

yesterday. It happened on the A 46 at Loddon. Three air ambulances were

:01:59.:02:02.

called to the scene. The ro`d was closed for six hours, and three

:02:03.:02:05.

people remain seriously ill in hospital.

:02:06.:02:11.

At this time of year, the E`ster holidays, rush`hour is terrhble It

:02:12.:02:15.

is very difficult to find a gap to get onto this road. It is obvious we

:02:16.:02:19.

need to slow down this traffic, a 60 mile per hour road. The onlx

:02:20.:02:22.

solution, I think, can be a roundabout. You can only sax this so

:02:23.:02:26.

many times. We can't allow lives to be lost like this.

:02:27.:02:34.

Six people in Colchester have now received envelopes full of cash in

:02:35.:02:37.

the post. No`one knows wherd it s come from and the only link so far

:02:38.:02:41.

is that some of them live, or have lived, in the same street. Felicity

:02:42.:02:44.

Simper reports. Two envelopes of cash, no note, no

:02:45.:02:48.

name. Dennis Barnes is stumped. Receiving ?300 in total, he did have

:02:49.:02:52.

a theory but now is back to square one. I racked my brains and then

:02:53.:03:00.

realised there is more. That has got me thinking. It is definitely

:03:01.:03:08.

elderly writing. Probably a woman's writing, so I've been told. Now the

:03:09.:03:13.

mystery of the anonymous money doner has deepened with around six

:03:14.:03:15.

residents having received envelopes of cash in the post, three of whom

:03:16.:03:19.

are reported to live, or have lived, here in Wycombe Road. A mild away,

:03:20.:03:27.

war veteran Charlie Williams is also trying to identify the anonxmous

:03:28.:03:30.

benefactor who sent him ?200 in the post. I thought it might have come

:03:31.:03:35.

from an old lady I used to look after. I don't know, but now I find

:03:36.:03:40.

out more people have receivdd ? 00, ?300. What can I say? I havd put the

:03:41.:03:49.

money to one side until the press or police, or whoever, finds ott who

:03:50.:03:52.

sent it to me. Both Dennis `nd Charlie say the money is st`ying in

:03:53.:03:56.

the bank until they find out who it has come from.

:03:57.:04:02.

Football, and just our Leagte One and Two teams were in action this

:04:03.:04:05.

afternoon. In League One, Colchester went down 1`0 at home. They're just

:04:06.:04:09.

two points above the drop`zone. And MK Dons lost away at Port V`le.

:04:10.:04:12.

Peterborough and bottom sidd Stevenage both play tonight. In

:04:13.:04:21.

League Two, a great away win for Southend. They stay in the play`off

:04:22.:04:24.

places. But a draw for Northampton couldn't get them out of thd

:04:25.:04:26.

relegation zone. In the Championship, Ipswich could move

:04:27.:04:29.

into the playoffs with a win at Watford tomorrow. And in thd Premier

:04:30.:04:32.

League, the relegation zone beckons if Norwich lose against Livdrpool on

:04:33.:04:36.

Sunday. Let's get the weather now. We had a

:04:37.:04:42.

little bit more cloud this afternoon. Not the best of days but

:04:43.:04:47.

we see an improvement tomorrow. It is looking dry tonight, and there'll

:04:48.:04:56.

be some clear spells around. Into tomorrow, a better day with

:04:57.:05:01.

brightness and sunshine. Thdre is a chance of one or two isolatdd

:05:02.:05:05.

showers, but the big change will be the wind direction, coming from the

:05:06.:05:11.

east. In the sunshine, tempdratures around 11 or 12 degrees. Watch out

:05:12.:05:15.

for an isolated shower for the afternoon, but generally quhte a lot

:05:16.:05:20.

of cloud around. We should see some sunshine, but then it goes downhill

:05:21.:05:24.

on Easter Sunday. This is the pressure pattern. Low presstre

:05:25.:05:29.

moving in, which means we won't all wake up to rain, but showers

:05:30.:05:38.

spreading in, particularly `cross those serving counties, so dveryone

:05:39.:05:41.

sees rain. As for the start next week, maybe some sunshine btt also

:05:42.:05:51.

showers. I will be back with an update at 10:20pm. Goodbye.

:05:52.:06:11.

Today we have seen temperatures rising if Scotland but again

:06:12.:06:16.

tonight, with the clear skies and light wind temperatures will fall

:06:17.:06:19.

sharply, and for many of us, we are looking at a touch of frost. The

:06:20.:06:23.

satellite picture tells a story nicely. This belt of cloud is

:06:24.:06:26.

sitting in the far north-west of Scotland, we have had this cloud

:06:27.:06:31.

bubbling up across eastern areas and with the northerly wind it has felt

:06:32.:06:34.

cold in East Anglia. That cloud is going to melt away, we will get an

:06:35.:06:38.

easterly breeze picking the cloud back in again later in the

:06:39.:06:40.
