Tonight: "Outrageous and rigged against Newcastle."

:00:00.:00:00.

Some of the angry reaction to the news that the child heart

:00:07.:00:08.

surgery unit will have to move across the city to

:00:09.:00:11.

It looks to me like this is designed to shift decision-making from the

:00:12.:00:23.

technical issues involved to the political issues which of course is

:00:24.:00:29.

something very different and I think very, very wrong.

:00:30.:00:30.

Also tonight: Jailed for more than two years.

:00:31.:00:32.

The internet troll who sent death threats to an MP.

:00:33.:00:36.

We're live at the River Wear where the centrepiece

:00:37.:00:39.

of Sunderland's new bridge is being lifted into position.

:00:40.:00:43.

York minster's very own police force is to be given the same powers

:00:44.:00:48.

Why there are sometimes more important things

:00:49.:00:53.

But when tomorrow's games do kick off can our Premier League

:00:54.:01:00.

24 hours after Look North revealed the future of child heart surgery

:01:01.:01:19.

in Newcastle is in jeopardy, there's been an angry reaction

:01:20.:01:21.

In order to continue, NHS England has said

:01:22.:01:24.

the Freeman Hospital will have to bring ALL its specialist

:01:25.:01:27.

Currently some are provided three miles across the city,

:01:28.:01:32.

in the Great North Children's Hospital at the Royal

:01:33.:01:34.

Well our health reporter, Sharon Barbour broke

:01:35.:01:41.

the story and she's outside the Freeman Hospital now.

:01:42.:01:44.

The reaction to the news has been one of shock.

:01:45.:01:48.

Two Newcastle MPs are planning to raise the issue with

:01:49.:01:50.

Here at the Freeman, they say they have to move

:01:51.:02:03.

children's heart surgery to the RVI is a huge and complex task that

:02:04.:02:13.

If they plan the house to work to secure the future of child heart

:02:14.:02:20.

surgery in the north-east. Rachel in Middlesbrough knows how

:02:21.:02:22.

difficult it is to watch your own Her son Theo has

:02:23.:02:25.

needed it three times. We owe them everything, we really

:02:26.:02:34.

do, they are just outstanding. And an outstanding team and we still

:02:35.:02:42.

have contact with them, now, Theo goes... On a three yearly basis,

:02:43.:02:46.

now, a fantastic thing which we would never thought we would see.

:02:47.:02:47.

He's is one of more than 2,000 heart and lung transplants have been

:02:48.:02:50.

performed in both children and adults, at the Freeman Hospital

:02:51.:02:53.

But BBC Look North has revealed for the Freeman Hospital to be able

:02:54.:02:56.

to continue its life saving complex child heart surgery ..

:02:57.:02:58.

NHS England says it needs to be on the same site as other specialist

:02:59.:03:02.

Today Newcastle Hospitals confirmed it was drawing up plans

:03:03.:03:09.

to move everything across to

:03:10.:03:10.

NHS England have made it very clear that they really do wish us to move.

:03:11.:03:23.

What services would go across? We would need to re-equipped to

:03:24.:03:26.

operating theatres, we would need what's a cardiac catheterisation

:03:27.:03:33.

laboratory, a large, dedicated children's intensive care area, a

:03:34.:03:38.

high dependency area, ward beds, and outpatient clinic. Where will the

:03:39.:03:42.

room come in the great north to the hospital do move all of these

:03:43.:03:49.

things? I can't answer that at the minute, specifically, but the trust

:03:50.:03:52.

is having a long, hard look at various options which will

:03:53.:03:55.

inevitably means some building. And new construction at the Royal

:03:56.:04:02.

Victoria Infirmary site. Who will pay for that? The great NHS will

:04:03.:04:05.

have to fund it, but I can't answer that specifically at this moment in

:04:06.:04:09.

time but there is no firm promises anywhere. We will have to look and

:04:10.:04:12.

see what is possible first. Because you don't have an option, do you? We

:04:13.:04:17.

are not seeming to be given an option by NHS England, so....

:04:18.:04:19.

The move will be a huge challenge and will cost

:04:20.:04:21.

many millions of pounds, NHS England say Newcastle

:04:22.:04:23.

Hospitals will have to find that money themselves:

:04:24.:04:28.

The news has drawn strong criticism from Newcastle Mps; Chi Onwurah

:04:29.:04:31.

is writing to the Health Secretary asking "whether forcing it to move

:04:32.:04:34.

across the city is really in the interests of children."

:04:35.:04:37.

Nick Brown MP was also shocked to hear the news.

:04:38.:04:43.

I think it's outrageous. The issue here is a rational argument, and the

:04:44.:04:54.

weight of evidence is clearly a Newcastle by backside, first

:04:55.:04:57.

political decision-making, and there of course we come down to be

:04:58.:05:02.

secretary of state, Jeremy Hunt, so we will both be putting pressure on

:05:03.:05:05.

the secretary of state to at least they fare. -- Playfair.

:05:06.:05:12.

the secretary of state to at least they -- fare.

:05:13.:05:14.

NHS England say Newcastle will have extra time

:05:15.:05:17.

for to draw up their plans, The Hospital trust say the actual

:05:18.:05:20.

move could mean building a new heart and transplant uni on the RVI site,

:05:21.:05:23.

and the whole process could take years..

:05:24.:05:25.

NHS England have recognised the exceptional work of the hospital -

:05:26.:05:43.

especially around transplant - the only child heart transplant

:05:44.:05:51.

The medical teams here welcome that endorsement.

:05:52.:05:58.

But to survive, to continue in the future they have the packed up and

:05:59.:06:00.

move across the city. An internet troll who made

:06:01.:06:05.

anti-Semitic death threats to a Labour MP has been jailed

:06:06.:06:07.

for 27 months. John Nimmo who's 28

:06:08.:06:11.

and from South Shields faced nine charges which included two relating

:06:12.:06:14.

to emails he sent to In one he said she would

:06:15.:06:16.

'get it like Jo Cox', He appeared via video-link

:06:17.:06:23.

at Newcastle Crown Court, The judge said his need for

:06:24.:06:42.

notoriety greatly outweighed his concern for others and that he

:06:43.:06:45.

terrified his victims from his home where he thought he could remain

:06:46.:06:48.

anonymous. Today, the 28-year-old from South Shields was deigned for

:06:49.:06:53.

nine charges related to threatening an offensive messages sent to a

:06:54.:06:57.

number of victims via the Internet. In July last day he sent death

:06:58.:07:02.

threats via e-mail to Liverpool way victory MP, as just weeks after her

:07:03.:07:08.

fellow MP Jo Cox was bad and shot at her constituency office. In one

:07:09.:07:17.

e-mail to miss Berger Khmer sheep would get its like Jo Cox,

:07:18.:07:21.

accompanied by a picture of a knife. In an other come

:07:22.:07:27.

he was also sentenced for threatening to blow up a mosque,

:07:28.:07:36.

saying death will come to all Muslims. In a statement read in

:07:37.:07:40.

court today, from miss Berger, the big concern was not knowing who this

:07:41.:07:44.

was. He could have been residing next door to me and it left me

:07:45.:07:49.

feeling physically sick. In mitigation, his barrister is said he

:07:50.:07:53.

had Asperger's syndrome and lived an isolated life. He said it was

:07:54.:07:59.

unlikely that he wouldn't offend again without therapy due to

:08:00.:08:02.

psychological problems. It isn't the first time he has been convicted for

:08:03.:08:06.

this type of offence, in 2014 was jailed for tweets to MP. He was told

:08:07.:08:16.

his actions had been cowardly and caused fear, misery and paranoia

:08:17.:08:19.

amongst his victims. He also said it was a great concern that he had

:08:20.:08:24.

thought it was fun to get reactions from people whilst abusing them

:08:25.:08:28.

anonymously. And that is need for recognition had stopped any remorse.

:08:29.:08:33.

Nimmo was jailed for 27 months. Three men have appeared in court

:08:34.:08:35.

in connection with a shooting A doorman was injured outside

:08:36.:08:38.

the Tup Tup Palace club in 2015. John Henry Sayers, who's 53,

:08:39.:08:43.

and Michael Dixon, who's 35, both from the Walker area

:08:44.:08:49.

of the city, were remanded in custody accused of

:08:50.:08:51.

"conspiracy to murder." A third man was bailed on a charge

:08:52.:08:53.

of "assisting an offender Police investigating the death

and there's a Land Rover. But Mima has a new direction,

:10:25.:10:27.

styling itself as a useful museum. We started our exhibitions

:10:28.:10:32.

which are about things people are concerned with,

:10:33.:10:34.

about things that are happening in the world, and we have

:10:35.:10:38.

started to respond to what people say they would like to see

:10:39.:10:42.

and what they would like to happen. 100,000 visitors

already come through a plainly finding it useful

enough will stop so did it become So could it become too popular?

:10:49.:10:53.

Pandering to populism? There's nothing wrong with being

:10:54.:11:03.

popular but equally you can be I don't think it's

:11:04.:11:06.

a question of and... Whether it's

:11:07.:11:09.

this or that, it's more a question of can we do a whole range of

:11:10.:11:11.

different activities. Some people of course

:11:12.:11:14.

will still criticise Mima, think it's not for them,

:11:15.:11:18.

but at after a decade that has seen big arts cuts it's still here,

:11:19.:11:22.

should they change their minds and want to see

:11:23.:11:25.

just how useful it is. Work's been going on all day

:11:26.:11:37.

in Sunderland, to lift the central pylon of

:11:38.:11:39.

the new Wear Crossing into place. It's a huge feat of civil

:12:01.:12:04.

all were scheduled to be a 20 hour operation and bentonite they are

:12:05.:12:07.

halfway through. It is also important to remember they haven't

:12:08.:12:11.

tried a structural left on this kind of scale since they raised the

:12:12.:12:15.

London eye nearly 20 years ago, but I am pleased to say that the

operation he is bang on track. They started at first light.

:12:18.:12:28.

Delicate and composite operation to lift the steel monster on to his

Tables are attached to the crossbeam which is then attached to a back

:12:41.:12:46.

called a strand jack which greets the cables through them very slowly,

:12:47.:12:51.

and about six metres and our commit will take 20 hours to move the whole

:12:52.:12:56.

thing upright. With each passing hour, this enormous steel structure

:12:57.:13:00.

creeps higher and higher. And you get a real sense of how it's going

:13:01.:13:03.

to transform the Sunderland skyline completely. Hundreds came down to

:13:04.:13:11.

the banks of the river to watch the drama slowly unfold. I think it's

:13:12.:13:16.

really cool because... Because it goes really high. When it was flat

:13:17.:13:22.

on the barge, there can be you didn't realise how big it was, but

:13:23.:13:25.

now it started to go up it is very, very tall. Once-in-a-lifetime for us

:13:26.:13:29.

to see something like this happening down here, here, so yes. Quite

:13:30.:13:34.

often, we keep track of your progress. Proud Jamaat very proud of

:13:35.:13:38.

Sunderland. Plenty of sleepless nights and I'm

:13:39.:13:44.

glad to say we're here today and very confident that those nights

:13:45.:13:47.

have been worthwhile, we've had a lot of challenges along the way that

:13:48.:13:51.

we've managed to iron them out and we're very happy to see everything

:13:52.:13:52.

going forward according plan. Plenty more coming up;

:13:53.:13:58.

Dawn's here with the sport, plus:

:13:59.:14:02.

Generating new woodland We join volunteers as they plant

:14:03.:14:03.

more than 1,400 new trees And it is a cold weekend to come

:14:04.:14:18.

with some further wintry showers, sleet and snow.

:14:19.:14:25.

Thought to be the oldest police force in the country,

:14:26.:14:28.

the Minster Police have been protecting York Minster

:14:29.:14:30.

and the people who worship there, since the 13th century.

:14:31.:14:32.

They're one of just five similar forces worldwide.

:14:33.:14:36.

But this week the Minster team was formally recognised,

:14:37.:14:39.

and - within the boundaries of the cathedral -

:14:40.:14:41.

will soon hold the same powers to arrest as normal police.

:14:42.:14:44.

The Minster police have been on duty a very long time. For more than 700

:14:45.:14:58.

years, they have guarded the piece here at York Minster, protecting the

:14:59.:15:02.

building and everyone in it on a daily basis. Specialist training for

:15:03.:15:05.

North Yorkshire Police means they will still hold the same powers of

:15:06.:15:10.

arrest as regular constables. From time to time, people have had a bit

:15:11.:15:13.

too much to drink or maybe just a little bit of disorder that has to

:15:14.:15:18.

be dealt with, and we have to be realistic that there could be a

:15:19.:15:24.

crime, so police officers are now trained to recognise that and how to

:15:25.:15:27.

deal with it appropriately and the right level. Cathedral constables

:15:28.:15:31.

were on the beach well before the police force was actually

:15:32.:15:35.

established in 1829. Since the 13th century they have held a vital role

:15:36.:15:39.

in securing York here, and that another few cathedrals like Chester

:15:40.:15:45.

and Lancashire. Last year they were professionally trained for the eight

:15:46.:15:49.

strong team he had the Minster. From disruptive visitors to serious

:15:50.:15:51.

criminals the team are now equipped for every situation but their

:15:52.:15:57.

central role remains to inform and advise the public. It has given us

:15:58.:16:02.

the tools to do the job, more proficiently. Should we encounter a

:16:03.:16:08.

situation we will know what to do, and we will have the confidence to

:16:09.:16:14.

carry out those actions. This week, North Yorkshire Police and the Dean

:16:15.:16:17.

of York signed a memorandum formally recognising their new role. The

:16:18.:16:19.

powers will come into force in May. Volunteers have spent the day

:16:20.:16:24.

planting thousands of trees across the Lake District to help

:16:25.:16:27.

restore woodland and provide some The National Trust's first mass

:16:28.:16:30.

planting will also help boost Mark McAlindon joined volunteers

:16:31.:16:33.

above the village of Braithwaite. On a winter morning perfect

:16:34.:16:41.

for planting trees, an army of volunteers marched up

:16:42.:16:43.

Coledale near Keswick to continue the task of restoring

:16:44.:16:47.

some natural tree and scrubland Over the course of this winter

:16:48.:16:49.

we've been planting This valley, along with lots in

:16:50.:16:58.

the Lake District, would have been wooded at one time,

:16:59.:17:03.

but for various reasons, farming, and there's

:17:04.:17:05.

a massive mine up there, one of the last

:17:06.:17:07.

working mines in the Lake District, so they would have cut

:17:08.:17:10.

down the trees for props, etc. Just about a mile down

:17:11.:17:12.

the back there's a village called Braithwaite, which

:17:13.:17:16.

last year unfortunately got really badly hit in the flood

:17:17.:17:18.

so trees will help to stabilise the soil and hopefully

:17:19.:17:20.

prevent these landslips from In all, across four lake

:17:21.:17:24.

district sites, 1,400 trees were being planted today alone,

:17:25.:17:27.

attracting volunteers keen If you live in such

:17:28.:17:32.

a beautiful place and enjoy the hills

:17:33.:17:37.

as much as I do, it just day a week just to

:17:38.:17:40.

help maintain them. Paths and walls and trees,

:17:41.:17:43.

just everything. The slopes of Coledale as you can

:17:44.:17:46.

see are extremely wet and boggy, so it's a question of what type

:17:47.:17:56.

of tree will thrive in these Well, this is aspen,

alongside willow, volunteers

planting hundreds of these because these types of tree

:18:02.:18:02.

will grow quite happily in wet soil. Aspen and willow grow quickly too,

it won't be long before this valley, Just before the sport,

Bradley Lowery, the five year-old Sunderland football fan who's

:18:09.:18:17.

terminally ill with cancer, has had some special

:18:18.:18:23.

visitors in hospital. The Black Cats' top scorer,

:18:24.:18:25.

Jermain Defoe, and goalkeeper Vito Mannone popped in to see

:18:26.:18:27.

Bradley, along with midfielder A photo of Bradley falling asleep

:18:28.:18:29.

cuddling Defoe has been liked by almost 60,000 people

:18:30.:18:36.

on social media. Yes, very moving -

:18:37.:18:44.

some things really are more important that football even

:18:45.:18:46.

when you're bottom of the league. Something I asked Sunderland boss

:18:47.:18:49.

David Moyes about at this afternoon's pre-match media

:18:50.:18:52.

conference. Footballers are actually

:18:53.:18:56.

good people, they do Sometimes the things that you hear

:18:57.:18:57.

about driving fast cars But our thoughts are with Bradley

:18:58.:19:15.

and his family all the time, But I'd just say that, you know,

:19:16.:19:19.

it does put things in perspective. Maybe it's good for the players

:19:20.:19:23.

to get away, get away from the constant sort of strain

:19:24.:19:25.

and pressure of being in here and then you actually see what it's

:19:26.:19:28.

really like in the real life, and as I said it was good

:19:29.:19:31.

on the players, but we'll just keep hoping and praying that

:19:32.:19:35.

Bradley keeps well. On the pitch Sunderland's surprise

:19:36.:19:37.

4-0 victory at Crystal Palace last weekend has given the players

:19:38.:19:39.

and the manager a much needed confidence boost ahead of tomorrow's

:19:40.:19:42.

Premier League clash with Southampton at

:19:43.:19:44.

the Stadium of Light. No one knows how much last

:19:45.:19:45.

week's win will affect the final outcome in May,

:19:46.:19:49.

but it's given renewed hope. With just two points

:19:50.:19:51.

separating the bottom six, a victory or two can make a huge

:19:52.:19:53.

difference. It can, and we've been

:19:54.:19:55.

in this position once or We've got to make sure we do,

:19:56.:19:58.

this time, and again, we're running out of games, so we've got

:19:59.:20:03.

to probably have a different mindset than maybe we

:20:04.:20:06.

have had in the past. The level of the performance

:20:07.:20:08.

at Crystal Palace was greater than I think it was very hard not to say

:20:09.:20:10.

that the majority of players played some of their best

:20:11.:20:15.

games, some of the best performances, and will

:20:16.:20:18.

need to do it again. Jordan Rhodes has been training this

:20:19.:20:20.

week but medics are insisting the keeper completes his rehab

:20:21.:20:22.

after a knee injury so he wont be I find it hard to

:20:23.:20:25.

actually understand and he's jumping and

:20:26.:20:34.

is getting but yeah, and he's jumping and

:20:35.:20:37.

is kicking but yeah, his time is probably

:20:38.:20:39.

after this weekend, so what I will say

:20:40.:20:40.

is he's very close to playing now. With no game next week David Moyes

:20:41.:20:43.

is taking his squad for a break, not for a spot of sunshine,

:20:44.:20:47.

but some team bonding in New York. I've done it for myself,

:20:48.:20:50.

and I know it's worked and know how it works

:20:51.:20:52.

for the group and also Some of them will get

:20:53.:20:55.

a chance to see some really important sites

:20:56.:20:59.

go and see some things, and we've got basketball games lined up,

:21:00.:21:02.

so we'll probably keep it on a sporty

:21:03.:21:04.

Well the Middlesbrough first team squad have just come home

:21:05.:21:08.

from their Benidorm warm-weather training camp ahead of a home game

:21:09.:21:12.

against in-form Everton, managed by the former Southampton

:21:13.:21:15.

With the Teessiders hovering just one point above the relegation zone,

:21:16.:21:20.

Many Boro fans arriving for tomorrow's crucial home game

:21:21.:21:29.

will no doubt have been envious of their team's mid-winter Spanish

:21:30.:21:32.

break, but will the change of scene improve the club's fortunes

:21:33.:21:35.

you're working hard is still away from home,

:21:36.:21:44.

you're working hard is still away from home, but it's the change

:21:45.:21:47.

Sometimes that's the desired effect and am hoping they come back

:21:48.:21:51.

re-energised and are ready for Saturday was like a game.

:21:52.:21:53.

Ex-Boro player Maddison says Boro need to set their sights higher

:21:54.:21:56.

And some of the games we've played this

:21:57.:22:02.

season we've takien draws inside of wins

:22:03.:22:04.

the possession of football we've had we dominated games at times and yet

:22:05.:22:09.

It's about earning teams, it's about scoring goals and

:22:10.:22:12.

winning games, and you don't get no points for playing pretty football,

:22:13.:22:15.

you get points for putting the ball in the back of the net.

:22:16.:22:18.

Ominously for Boro Everton and star striker Romelu Lukaku arrive

:22:19.:22:21.

Four goals in his last game, he's just scoring

:22:22.:22:25.

goals for fun and that's someone we need, really.

:22:26.:22:27.

Unsettled but hugely talented midfielder Gaston Ramirez,

:22:28.:22:29.

who wanted to join champions Leicester last month,

:22:30.:22:34.

He's going to play now till the end of the season and if he

:22:35.:22:38.

does really well he can get his move at the end

:22:39.:22:41.

of the season but he is

:22:42.:22:42.

an important player for us, he needs to perform for us.

:22:43.:22:50.

Championship leaders Newcastle United don't have fond

:22:51.:22:51.

memories of their first league meeting with Wolves this season.

:22:52.:22:54.

A surprise 2-0 home defeat back in September, which later saw

:22:55.:23:00.

Jonjo Shelvey pick up a five-match ban after being found guilty

:23:01.:23:03.

The influential midfielder will have to keep his cool at Molineux

:23:04.:23:07.

tomorrow tea-time in a game which comes a bit too early

:23:08.:23:09.

for striker Dwight Gayle, nearing a return from injury.

:23:10.:23:11.

The Magpies' boss, meanwhile, concedes that it won't be easy

:23:12.:23:14.

for the top two to pull further clear of the chasing pack.

:23:15.:23:19.

Some teams are doing well, they are on form and everyone can

:23:20.:23:22.

lose points and then it is important to just

:23:23.:23:27.

concentrate on one game can see what happened,

:23:28.:23:28.

but I'm sure that other teams they will be pushing and

:23:29.:23:32.

pushing and as I said before April could be a crucial place because you

:23:33.:23:36.

have so many games and there will be a distance between teams that is not

:23:37.:23:39.

In League Two, Carlisle United will be looking to build

:23:40.:23:48.

on their first win of 2017 last week when they host mid-table

:23:49.:23:50.

You can listen to commentary of that game on BBC Radio Cumbria and BBC

:23:51.:23:57.

Tees will have all the action from Hartlepool's tough away trip

:23:58.:23:59.

Yorkshire's Joe Root and Durham's Ben Stokes

:24:00.:24:03.

have met with Director of Cricket Andrew Strauss as England

:24:04.:24:06.

continue their search for a new captain.

:24:07.:24:09.

Alastair Cook stepped down on Monday after a record 59 Tests in charge.

:24:10.:24:12.

Root who was vice-captain, is favourite to take over

:24:13.:24:14.

but Strauss has so far refused to "rule anyone in or out".

:24:15.:24:17.

The new skipper will be appointed before England's tour

:24:18.:24:20.

Finally good luck to Darlington Mowden Park Sharks Lock

:24:21.:24:28.

forward Tamara Taylor who'll win her 100th cap for England

:24:29.:24:30.

when they take on Wales in the Women's Six Nations

:24:31.:24:32.

She made her debut in 2005. Congratulations to her! Time that

:24:33.:24:47.

the weather now. It's a bit cold out there. Yes,

:24:48.:24:56.

really cold, Jeff. We have same some snow showers as well. Some

:24:57.:25:00.

photographs to show you first of all, this trip taken by James 's

:25:01.:25:07.

afternoon, leaden skies across Wearside, but blazing sunshine for a

:25:08.:25:11.

time elsewhere. Some snow as well, this taken in Teesdale, and our

:25:12.:25:17.

Weather Watchers have sent these end. This weekend, further wintry

:25:18.:25:23.

showers, a cold wind blowing, and lots of great cloud in the forecast

:25:24.:25:27.

as well, so quite a miserable weekend. Tonight a weather warning

:25:28.:25:35.

for snow, valid until ten o'clock tomorrow morning. How that pans out,

:25:36.:25:40.

through the evening and overnight, a lot of clear skies, but gradually

:25:41.:25:46.

for the north-east, showers return, falling as snow, even down to low

:25:47.:25:52.

levels, but we could even see three to six centimetres. Temperatures

:25:53.:25:55.

overnight down at freezing, perhaps above in a fuse box. A cold start

:25:56.:26:01.

tomorrow, quite a great start with continued showers pushing in, and

:26:02.:26:06.

the difference is the north-easterly and easterly wind feeling stronger,

:26:07.:26:10.

so that will add a wind chill factor through Saturday. Cumbria,

:26:11.:26:13.

especially western parts, do best with the dry weather, the tops of

:26:14.:26:20.

the Pennines and students will see snow, as the show was come through.

:26:21.:26:25.

So lower levels, it falls as rain. Temperatures around for five but add

:26:26.:26:29.

on the strength of that wind and it will be feeling bitterly cold.

:26:30.:26:35.

Showers continue to Saturday night into Sunday, falling snow again,

:26:36.:26:38.

ever higher ground, but because they are showers they went the scene by

:26:39.:26:42.

all. Temperatures drop around freezing. Sunday, Breeze coming in

:26:43.:26:49.

from the east, a cold direction, and if you brighter spells especially

:26:50.:26:52.

across Cumbria on Sunday but we see some further showers pushing in

:26:53.:26:56.

again over higher ground, some centimetres, down to lower levels,

:26:57.:27:01.

falling asleep not snow. Temperatures on Sunday about 45

:27:02.:27:04.

degrees, adding on the strength of the wind again and it will feel much

:27:05.:27:09.

colder than that. Pretty, cold, windy, wet over the weekend, what

:27:10.:27:13.

about the start of next week? It will look quite cool on Monday and

:27:14.:27:19.

Tuesday, only a gradual change to something a little bit milder, if

:27:20.:27:24.

you more wintry showers on Monday, one to sunny spells, balmy 8 degrees

:27:25.:27:28.

by Tuesday. A bit party over the weekend,

:27:29.:27:37.

though. A little bit of snow! Have a great weekend, we will see you on

:27:38.:27:38.

Monday.

:27:39.:27:43.
