Good afternoon. Soldiers will parade through

:00:12.:00:14.

Grantham later to mark the disbandment of their regiment and a

:00:15.:00:17.

formation of a new one. The parade will mark the disbandment of 160

:00:18.:00:20.

Transport Regiment which has been based at Prince William of

:00:21.:00:23.

Gloucester Barracks since 1995. At the same, a new unit will be formed

:00:24.:00:27.

` the 160 Lincoln Squadron based in Sobraon Barracks in Lincoln.

:00:28.:00:34.

Veteran Lincolnshire MP Sir Peter Tapsell says he expects his

:00:35.:00:36.

Conservative group to choose a replacement within months. The

:00:37.:00:39.

member for Louth and Horncastle, who's the longest`serving MP in the

:00:40.:00:42.

Commons, confirmed his decision to stand down last night. He didn't

:00:43.:00:46.

comment on reports that London Mayor Boris Johnson may stand for his

:00:47.:00:50.

seat. But says his successor has a lot of hard work to do. I am staying

:00:51.:01:01.

on for another 14 months. I am merely, as a matter of courtesy and

:01:02.:01:06.

sense, telling the association I am giving them one year of warning to

:01:07.:01:10.

not stand again. So they can get a jolly good candidate. And he would

:01:11.:01:17.

take one year to get well`known, it is a very big city.

:01:18.:01:19.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce says his team face a pivotal time in

:01:20.:01:22.

their Premier League season. George Boyd will miss today's game with

:01:23.:01:26.

West Bromwich Albion after being suspended for spitting at Manchester

:01:27.:01:29.

City's Joe Hart last weekend. Bruce says both teams need the points

:01:30.:01:34.

today. A big game for both clubs. And if we can win it, it would set

:01:35.:01:38.

us up very nicely for the most pivotal couple of weeks, I think. We

:01:39.:01:42.

have got back`to`back away games after this one in quick succession.

:01:43.:01:48.

So if we can get off and running to a good start tomorrow, it will be

:01:49.:01:52.

terrific. That game is on BBC Radio

:01:53.:01:54.

Humberside's FM frequency later today. Scunthorpe's game with Burton

:01:55.:01:58.

is on AM. Grimsby Town travel to Nuneaton Town. You can hear that on

:01:59.:02:07.

Digital and online. And Lincoln City are also away, they make the journey

:02:08.:02:10.

to Gateshead. BBC Radio Lincolnshire have that game from 2pm.

:02:11.:02:14.

Hundreds of shire horses from across Europe are in Grantham this weekend.

:02:15.:02:17.

The Shire Horse Society's National Show is the world's largest

:02:18.:02:20.

gathering of the breed. Spectators are coming from Australia and the

:02:21.:02:23.

USA, as Kate Sweeting reports. When you are a champion shire horse

:02:24.:02:26.

stallion, getting ready takes time. This is Benefactor and his owner Ron

:02:27.:02:30.

Calder has been breeding these animals since the 1970s. They are

:02:31.:02:33.

gentle giants. Now everyone has come to use them in riding and it is a

:02:34.:02:37.

great pleasure to see them, and just have them for pleasure. They are

:02:38.:02:40.

getting ready for the Shire Horse Society's national show which is

:02:41.:02:43.

taking place in Grantham this weekend. It is attracting 300

:02:44.:02:48.

enthusiasts from all over the world. Hard to believe, then, that this

:02:49.:02:52.

breed was once on the brink of extinction. In the early 60s we were

:02:53.:02:58.

down to only about 14 horses that year, and gradually we have managed

:02:59.:03:01.

to increase the numbers since then. We are at about 400 a year now, but

:03:02.:03:06.

they are still recognised as a rare breed in the country.

:03:07.:03:08.

This weekend, the competition will be fierce but Ron is hoping that he

:03:09.:03:12.

and Benefactor can bring home some silverware.

:03:13.:03:21.

It has been a bright start to the day.

:03:22.:03:23.

Let's get the weather forecast now, with Jennifer Bartrum.

:03:24.:03:25.

Hello there. After a bright morning for many of us, we will see more in

:03:26.:03:29.

the way of showers this afternoon. Some of the showers could be fairly

:03:30.:03:33.

heavy, we could see some hail and thunder, possibly even sleet and

:03:34.:03:36.

snow over the higher ground. It is going to be a chilly day,

:03:37.:03:39.

temperatures no higher than eight or nine degrees. The showers continue

:03:40.:03:42.

overnight, we could see some problems with ice by tomorrow

:03:43.:03:46.

morning, it is going to be a chilly night, temperatures dipping back to

:03:47.:03:48.

around three degrees Celsius. A chilly start to Sunday, showers

:03:49.:03:51.

continuing with bright spells in between.

:03:52.:03:55.

chilly start to Sunday, showers Not so great then. That is all from

:03:56.:03:57.

us for a lunchtime. Goodbye. Hello. The weekend started with

:03:58.:04:13.

snowcapped hills and blue sky. Since then, more clout has built and the

:04:14.:04:17.

showers have broken out widely. Some heavy downpours and hell stones. --

:04:18.:04:25.

he'll stones. This is all part and parcel of the colder weather

:04:26.:04:28.

weekend. There is a wintry
