Good afternoon. The sisters of Jade Etherington have spoken of their
pride at watching their sister win the first medal at the Wintdr games.
This is Jade's first event `t the Winter Paralympics in Sochi. And her
first medal here. It makes Jade the first British female ever to win a
skiing medal at the Winter Games. It hasn't really sunk in yet. I just
really excited. I'm an official Paralympian no, it's
a great feeling. Jade and hdr guide Caroline have spent months preparing
for the Paralympics. Jade is partially sighted so relies on
Caroline in front to guide her around the course. What was like
watching your sister compethng this morning? Back in Lincolnshire, her
three sisters have been spe`king about her success. And they couldn't
be prouder. I feel relieved for her and I think it will help to calm her
nerves, so hopefully she can do just as well in her other events.
Praise too from the Prime Mhnister. He tweeted this earlier. Jade will
compete here again on Mondax. But first, time to recover from this
bump at the end of the race. And celebrate her silver medal, along
with her birthday tomorrow. Police say a body found in woodland
in Lincolnshire yesterday afternoon is that of a missing Americ`n

Very sad news and our hearts go out to the family and all concerned We
are all really rather shockdd here in the village that such an event
could take place here. Anything we can do, we will be happy to do.

this afternoon. Good afternoon. Our weekend forecast
did include some sunshine and warmth but was never going to be
wall-to-wall across the whole country. We started with a lot of
mist and murk and cloud but you can see how, to the south, sunshine has

strong wind across parts of Scotland. A breezy afternoon for the
rugby in Murrayfield but it should be dry if a little overcast. Drive
in Northern Ireland through the afternoon. Some brighter spells
started to develop across northern England but it's always further
south where we got the best of sunshine. A bit breezy but 15 or 16
