to leave The Pods in Scunthorpe at around 11.20am
this morning, and people from the swimming pool used foil

It's not clear yet when the pool might re-open.
A lifeboat that will be the fastest and most agile on the Lincolnshire
coast has been welcomed to its new home in Skegness
There's been a lifeboat at the resort for almost 200 years.
Our reporter Jill Archbold saw it arrive.

Once you step on the boat, it just gets in your blood
You see all of the people on the beach.
We've never seen it before like this and were never
It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we're really lucky to have it.
The lifeboat came ashore at exactly 13.17, the same number
It's very touching, isn't it, when you look see so many
As an ex-sailor, I know very well that coming
I think it's absolutely fabulous the way it demonstrated what it
served Skegness for more than 25 years will now be replaced

I didn't come to Lincoln School until I was 14 because I was
supposed to go to public school but I failed Common Entrance.
But I did meet wonderful people here.
One of the highlights of Lincoln School for me
In football, Lincoln City were hoping to continue
Brighton and Hove Albion, who are top of the Championship
table, were the visitors to Sincil Bank.
Our sports reporter Simon Clark saw the game.
We have just witnessed one of the most amazing cup ties that this
extraordinary competition has grown up and its many, many years. And it
is extraordinary for the way that then non-league side Lincoln city
came back because they went behind. To the school., a good call, as
well. I don't know what they said at half-time, but side was changed.
They were back with a penalty, taken by Alan Power. Soon after, Nathan
Arnold scored, he predicted rise in and it was put past his own keeper
by one -- breaking defenders. To add the
cream to the crop, they will Robinson taking advantage of a
breaking mistake to make it three. And they are through. They are
through to the fifth round of the FA Cup. Fancier cannot believe what is
happening and neither can I. Lincoln city have made it through. The goals
to one. -- three goals to Elsewhere, Scunthorpe United
came from behind twice in their League One game
with Port Vale. Tom Hopper scored the winner
in a 3-2 victory. In League Two, Grimsby Town
lost 2-nil at Stevenage. And in the National League,
North Ferriby United lost We should see a little more
in the way of brightness tomorrow but overnight tonight a mixture
of variable amount of cloud and a few showers
feeding in from the West. I think these will start to fragment
by the time that they reach East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire,
but we could see a couple Some clear skies, so this
will enable a bit of frost maybe some ice to form with temperatures
in towns and cities I think we'll start the day tomorrow
on a pretty decent note. We'll see some really nice spells
of sunshine through the morning as well as maybe one of two showers
and then things will cloud over from the south-west,
bringing some rain. Hello. If you don't like the cold
weather, it certainly felt a lot better for you today, at least
across the southern half of the UK. Still pretty chilly in northern
areas, even some sleet. When we see this transition from one type of
weather to another, we get a lot of variable weather. That's what we've
had today that is what is on the way tomorrow. Sunshine and showers
today, and tomorrow will be quite a mix as well. Lots of clouds in the
Atlantic ready to come our way. The short term, just bits and spots of
rain in the western areas, some rain in the North least. Cold enough for
some ice to form in Northern Ireland, northern England and parts
of Scotland. In the south it should be frost free, all in advance of
this weather front which will spoil the weather for many of us across
the southern half of the UK tomorrow. Pretty cloudy, wet
picture. Rain not
