Milton Keynes disguised as Metropolis, its futuristic buildings

selected to double as Clark Kent's home city but 30 years on from

Superman's flying visit and Milton Keynes has become its own mini

metropolis even getting its own edition of monopoly. Over 70% of

:00:36.:00:42.

businesses in Milton Keynes started up in the town and over 60% of them

:00:43.:00:50.

employed no war than five people and by 2013 the latest estimates show

the early days was good road and rail links by transport he was about

to get the first, the government has already thrown its weight behind the

:01:04.:01:06.

new east-west rail link connecting Oxford to Milton Keynes and on to

:01:07.:01:14.

Cambridge. The next step will be airing details about the work and

consulted on routes, we will do it in a sensitive away as possible and

we will also deliver the connectivity we need in the heart of

pieces so watch this space, Milton Keynes is growing. Warehouses here

:01:50.:01:56.

are super size, among them is this business, its Reach global. It is a

:01:57.:02:03.

shop window to our customers, many people come from across the globe to

:02:04.:02:06.

see us so it is important we are in a dynamic working environment. It is

:02:07.:02:12.

a great backdrop to a operation. It is not just manufacturing jobs in

:02:13.:02:17.

Milton Keynes attracts, it has become a successful technology hub

:02:18.:02:19.

attracting digital and creative jobs, too. Jobs that have inspired

:02:20.:02:26.

structural reality work. Here at the visualisation lab at the transport

:02:27.:02:30.

Systems catapult designers are working on ways to help us navigate

:02:31.:02:36.

our towns and cities in the future than one method is by using virtual

:02:37.:02:44.

reality. They made fun of its roundabout -- of the roundabouts but

:02:45.:02:47.

today it is one of the fastest-growing towns in the country

:02:48.:02:50.

with the business pedigree to match but most here regarded a city. Will

:02:51.:02:55.

it ever get the status to match its ideals and exhilarating growth?

:02:56.:02:58.

Pam Gosal is head of Corporate Economic Development

:02:59.:03:01.

and Inward Investment for Milton Keynes Council.

:03:02.:03:03.

I asked her what the secret was of Milton Keynes business success?

:03:04.:03:11.

You have that busy city centre jobs, you have the countryside feel as

:03:12.:03:19.

well and second would-be location, the fact that we have the north and

:03:20.:03:23.

south moving, East and West hopefully, the knowledge with the

:03:24.:03:27.

connectivity and location we have, that there is a good skills pool. It

:03:28.:03:31.

is important for businesses looking to Milton Keynes, the fact that you

:03:32.:03:35.

know our business has a lawyer and accountant there, a printer, we have

:03:36.:03:39.

so many diverse businesses that we have that in one place and last but

:03:40.:03:45.

not least Milton Keynes has much wind, we have a lot of development

:03:46.:03:49.

sites, commercial and residential, which work with our partners include

:03:50.:03:56.

the PB work with partners and make sure that is an investment. With the

:03:57.:03:59.

growing workforce echoes pressure on housing and infrastructure, how are

:04:00.:04:05.

you coping with that? We have the MK futures commission report which is

:04:06.:04:10.

looking at six key priorities, all the challenges we have moving

:04:11.:04:13.

forward whether it is infrastructure or to do with housing or basically

:04:14.:04:24.

IT related to higher education, or mobility with the ground. It is

:04:25.:04:27.

important we are looking at it not just in 50 years but looking 50

:04:28.:04:32.

years ahead. That all costs money at a time when the councils are

:04:33.:04:36.

strapped for cash. You're right, all councils are strapped for cash but

:04:37.:04:41.

this is where it is important that we are in the private sector, Milton

:04:42.:04:46.

Keynes Council has many partnerships not just with public bodies but we

:04:47.:04:49.

have good partnerships with the private sector and it is about

:04:50.:04:52.

enabling the private sector to help deliver our priorities whether it is

:04:53.:04:56.

apprenticeships are looking at tech hubs. Wave back the Prime Minister

:04:57.:05:01.

has been outlining how the economy might work post Brexit, how do you

:05:02.:05:07.

think Milton Keynes will fear? Milton Keynes is an extremely

:05:08.:05:10.

successful place in the fact that after the vote we are still getting

:05:11.:05:15.

a high level of enquiry from international and international

:05:16.:05:19.

businesses are not to forget our businesses are growing a lot one as

:05:20.:05:24.

well so I think to be honest at this moment I could say that it had

:05:25.:05:25.

affected body Keynes. whose body was found in a septic

:05:26.:05:27.

tank at her home in Royston has told a court her daughter had

:05:28.:05:32.

complained of feeling in the weeks before

:05:33.:05:34.

she went missing. also said she felt "uneasy"

:05:35.:05:37.

about her daughter's He denies drugging her with sleeping

:05:38.:05:40.

pills and murdering her. Bailey had suffered from memory

:05:41.:05:58.

lapses and felt dizzy and spaced out in the weeks and months before her

:05:59.:06:01.

disappearance in April. The jury heard from Helen's mother through

:06:02.:06:09.

video link. She said on one occasion Helen was left traumatised after

:06:10.:06:12.

realising she had left her beloved dog on the beach and had returned

:06:13.:06:18.

home without him. We have just one week before she went missing that

:06:19.:06:21.

Helen had called her mother sending anxious, after waking from a file or

:06:22.:06:24.

sleep in the middle of the day. Eileen Bailey broke down in tears

:06:25.:06:30.

were giving evidence, she also said she felt uneasy about Helen's

:06:31.:06:34.

relationship with Ian Stewart due to her state of mind. A police

:06:35.:06:38.

interview with the defendant was played in court and we have in one

:06:39.:06:44.

of the officers involved. This officer said I often found him rude,

:06:45.:06:48.

temperamental, uncooperative and dismissive of us. After the first

:06:49.:06:53.

interview she said he asked and I still suspect? I must be, I must be

:06:54.:06:59.

a suspect. Helen Bailey's body was found in a cesspit under her home

:07:00.:07:03.

three months after she vanished in April last year. The prosecution

:07:04.:07:06.

claimed Ian Stewart sedated his fiancee with sleeping pills before

:07:07.:07:12.

killing her for her money. Ian Stewart denies murder, averting the

:07:13.:07:16.

course of justice of fraud and preventing a lawful burial. The case

:07:17.:07:17.

will continue on Wednesday. Police divers have been searching

:07:18.:07:23.

a lake in Northamptonshire today trying to track down

:07:24.:07:26.

the killer of a pensioner. David Brickwood was murdered

:07:27.:07:28.

in his own home in Northampton So far no one has been

:07:29.:07:30.

charged with his murder, and police are yet to

:07:31.:07:34.

find the murder weapon. Searching the icy water, more than a

:07:35.:07:49.

year after David Brookwood was murdered in his own home. Police

:07:50.:07:54.

today looking for any clue to help track down his killer. We never

:07:55.:07:59.

located the weapon that killed David, and we don't not exactly what

:08:00.:08:03.

was stolen from his address so we are looking for anything that might

:08:04.:08:09.

have been the weapon that has harmed her that anything that could have

:08:10.:08:12.

come from his address. David was described as an honest and caring

:08:13.:08:15.

man and was asleep in his own bed when he was stabbed five times in

:08:16.:08:19.

what police described as a dreadful and violent attack. Despite appeals

:08:20.:08:24.

including one on the BBC's Crimewatch programme, questions

:08:25.:08:29.

remain about exactly what happened. Police say they will continue to do

:08:30.:08:33.

all they can to try and bring his killers to justice.

:08:34.:08:34.

That's how the region is looking tonight.

:08:35.:08:37.

Coming up next the weather with Julie, but from me

:08:38.:08:40.

We'll be back with the Breakfast bulletins from 06.25

:08:41.:08:43.

We might have a little bit of light rain and drizzle to light but be

:08:44.:08:56.

largely dry and under clear skies turning chilly. Temperatures down to

:08:57.:09:01.

-1 or two but we might see some even more, perhaps -5 and we have a

:09:02.:09:05.

yellow warning in place for fog. Some of that will be freezing fog

:09:06.:09:10.

and leads to tricky driving conditions not just an iPod tomorrow

:09:11.:09:14.

morning as well. Some of this fog could linger through the day of or

:09:15.:09:16.

not everywhere, some other should hopefully brighten up with some

:09:17.:09:21.

sunshine coming through. Where that happens highs of around 6 degrees,

:09:22.:09:25.

whether fog lingers temperatures struggling to get above freezing. In

:09:26.:09:29.

finish the day drive but under the clear skies of frost then fog

:09:30.:09:33.

resuming in forming. On Wednesday at cell high-pressure migrating

:09:34.:09:36.

eastwards, the wind picking up little so on Wednesday the frost in

:09:37.:09:42.

the fog should clear more readily if all goes to plan. Then on Thursday

:09:43.:09:47.

we start to drag in much cold air from the continent. After a frosty

:09:48.:09:52.

start plenty of sunshine really feeling very chilly, especially in

:09:53.:09:58.

the wind. Hopefully not quite as cold on Friday, largely dry with

:09:59.:10:02.

brightness and sunshine. We have the

:10:03.:10:03.

For the weekend we will have dry weather with sunny spells and it

:10:04.:10:05.

will be a little bit milder. Good evening. We are continuing to

:10:06.:10:15.

see huge righty in the weather. Getting the detail right is proving

:10:16.:10:23.

to be a challenge. This was in Pembrokeshire and other parts of the

:10:24.:10:28.

UK were gloomy throughout the day. The fog is thickening up right now.

:10:29.:10:34.

Particularly pool on the M5 in south-west England. Very foggy

:10:35.:10:42.

across parts of the West Country. This fog is tending to spread its

:10:43.:10:47.

way further eastwards. Some fog as well across parts of Yorkshire.

:10:48.:10:51.

Northern Ireland and Scotland are mild but damn. This is how we will

:10:52.:10:57.

start the day. At eight o'clock in the morning, quite a lot of fog

:10:58.:11:00.

around which could affect the major airports. What all of us have seen

:11:01.:11:06.

fog. There will be Sunni areas to western fringes of England and

:11:07.:11:12.

Wales. Across Northern Ireland and Scotland it is much milder. Some

:11:13.:11:17.

patchy rain around coming in on the Bruce, particularly over the hills

:11:18.:11:21.

in the West. Much of that will fade away. It will be relatively mild.

:11:22.:11:27.

For England and Wales, much of the fog were clear. Some of it will not

:11:28.:11:32.

sell it will be especially chilly. Quite a contrast in temperatures

:11:33.:11:38.

again. -- so it will be especially chilly. Despite sunshine, it will be

:11:39.:11:43.

on the chilly side. The fog will come back again. On Wednesday

:11:44.:11:48.

morning, Central and eastern parts are particularly prone. Some

:11:49.:11:52.

sunshine will emerge. Rather more cloud for Northern Ireland and

:11:53.:11:56.

Scotland. Most of the rain will be held at bay. Still relatively mild.

:11:57.:12:02.

A real edge to that further south and east. It would be a sign of

:12:03.:12:07.

things to come. On Thursday we will tap into some particularly cold air

:12:08.:12:10.

sitting over the continent for several days now. Europe is frozen

:12:11.:12:17.

at the moment. Some of the freezing cold air will head towards us on a

:12:18.:12:22.

stiffening south-easterly breeze. Some places will not get above

:12:23.:12:28.

freezing, maybe the odd snow flurry. Wherever you are, it will feel cold.

:12:29.:12:31.

All
