First tonight the huge business deal centred on this region: Tesco has

:00:00.:00:10.

agreed to buy Wellingborough based wholesaler the Booker Group for

:00:11.:00:12.

Booker supplies food to seven hundred thousand businesses

:00:13.:00:19.

including independent High Street names like Budgens and Londis.

:00:20.:00:24.

Tonight the Wellingborough MP Peter Bone told Look East he hoped

Taken over by Tesco in a deal worth ?3.7 billion.

:00:44.:00:51.

the two together the leading food business.

:00:52.:00:56.

From the distribution centre, Booker supplied 200 cash and carry,

:00:57.:00:58.

He calls them the backbone of his business.

It'll be a stronger supplied chain, we will get more stock

:01:30.:01:35.

and hopefully that prices will be good for the consumers

I'm looking to open new stores with Tesco's and Booker to help

The company employing 1300 people, it has 1.3 million customers

:01:47.:01:53.

It is exceptionally good news and it will hopefully lead to more

:01:56.:01:57.

jobs and more growth for the combined group.

:01:58.:02:06.

A company built on supplying small independent shops, now swallowed up

:02:07.:02:21.

by the biggest. People predicted the demise of retail businesses

:02:22.:02:26.

overtaken by Tesco and now, 2017, Tesco is buying the right to supply

the retailers. Booker, part of the shop steel, now

in footballing circles both here in Cambridgeshire and indeed

home and took him into custody on suspicion of indecency

:03:54.:03:56.

with children, and indecent assault. He's currently being questioned

:03:57.:04:00.

at a police station in the county. Police saying that anyone with

:04:01.:04:02.

concerns should call them on 101. This week we've been

:04:03.:04:09.

celebrating the 50th birthday of Milton Keynes but being one

:04:10.:04:14.

of Europe's fastest growing towns Currently Milton Keynes

:04:15.:04:16.

Hospital has 526 beds were delivered there last year

:04:17.:04:27.

and more than eighty-four thousand Stuart Ratcliffe has

:04:28.:04:32.

been to the hospital 2pm on a Friday afternoon, what is a

:04:33.:04:46.

situation like today? Three empty beds which will be filled shortly,

:04:47.:04:53.

an additional 20 or so definite discharges and a further ten

:04:54.:04:58.

potentials. I have 50 patients in ANA, ten of which definitely need

:04:59.:05:05.

beds. With pressures building, it is the obvious first port of call.

:05:06.:05:11.

Still on red. We flipping a bay to create capacity for the male

:05:12.:05:17.

patients. She manages 526 beds in this hospital and it is a constant

:05:18.:05:21.

juggling act. A new ward with 20 beds is due to open next month. It

:05:22.:05:28.

is part of a multi-million rebuild but with Milton Keynes population

:05:29.:05:32.

booming, will it be enough? We believe the building programmes we

:05:33.:05:36.

have here, the significant investments we are making will allow

:05:37.:05:42.

us to cope with demand. As it stands, do you think the NHS model

:05:43.:05:48.

is sustainable in the future? I absolutely believe it is. The values

:05:49.:05:51.

that drive the NHS, the staff that work here, the level of care, the

:05:52.:05:58.

quality of care is still without question one of the best if not the

:05:59.:06:02.

best in the world. The chief executive also admits the winter

:06:03.:06:07.

pressures means this hospital and the wider NHS are coping but only

:06:08.:06:13.

just. Back on the wards, that means the search for beds and the juggling

:06:14.:06:15.

of resources continues. Events have been taking place

:06:16.:06:18.

across the world today to remember the millions of victims

:06:19.:06:21.

of the Holocaust. In Cambridge, an exhibition

:06:22.:06:23.

at Newnham College tells the story of the children who managed

:06:24.:06:25.

:06:26.:06:28.

around 100 came to live Hello, overnight some clear spells

:06:29.:06:47.

but cloud, too. Further outbreaks of light and patchy rain. Not as cold

:06:48.:06:52.

as last night, temperatures no lower than two or three Celsius. Tomorrow,

:06:53.:06:56.

we start cloudy, further outbreaks of rain at times but not as cold as

:06:57.:07:00.

the last couple of days. Temperatures up to seven or 8

:07:01.:07:07.

degrees. We may see the cloud break before the day is done in parts to

:07:08.:07:12.

allow late sunshine and brightness but the most diverse it would be a

:07:13.:07:16.

cloudy day from start to finish. In a moment, Helen with the national

:07:17.:07:21.

forecast. Sunday, another cloudy day, uncertainty as to how far north

:07:22.:07:26.

the rain will spread, Monday is try with drizzle and more rain on

:07:27.:07:27.

Tuesday. Good evening. Not many would argue

:07:28.:07:43.

that January hasn't been dry, but today, many of us had our first

:07:44.:07:47.

significant rain for some time, because the transition is on from

:07:48.:07:51.

cold, Continental dry air to milder Atlantic air, but the transition is

:07:52.:07:56.

a slow one. So we have had ice today, and freezing fog, in northern

:07:57.:08:00.

England. We had a little sunshine as well in Norfolk, but we still have

:08:01.:08:04.

the cold air around and about in the north. All this rain you can see,

:08:05.:08:10.

which is giving is a wet day in some areas, 10-15 millimetres of rain has

:08:11.:08:12.

fallen, as it comes north there could be some winter it issues. Snow

:08:13.:08:17.

already falling over Scotland, possibly over northern England,

:08:18.:08:22.

possibly some sleet over lower areas and fog. Not particularly nice, and

:08:23.:08:26.

some icy conditions to contend with late in the night across Northern

:08:27.:08:31.

Ireland, as the rain clears away. Again, a word of warning there could

:08:32.:08:35.

be some ice around in the morning if you are heading out, in fact this

:08:36.:08:37.

evening and overnight.
