It has to be that man, the coach, Eddie Jones, about to win the Six

Good evening. Nations again

:00:00.:00:16.

Dame Vera Baird, the Police and Crime Commissioner

:00:17.:00:19.

for Northumbria, has criticised comments made by a

:00:20.:00:20.

Lindsey Kushner QC said women should protect themselves from rapists

:00:21.:00:27.

But the Commissioner says the the remarks would discourage

:00:28.:00:39.

women from reporting rape and she would have preferred her

:00:40.:00:42.

to have focussed her comments on the perpetrators.

:00:43.:00:45.

It would be good to make a very big statement that that completely put

:00:46.:00:51.

predatory behaviour is now recognised for what it is, and the

:00:52.:00:56.

fact that it is preying on someone who is honourable, who might be less

:00:57.:01:02.

able to fight back, that makes the rape much worse. So yes, I think

:01:03.:01:06.

there should be an enhanced sentence for that.

:01:07.:01:09.

The SNP's demanded the UK government releases its

:01:10.:01:11.

correspondence with Nissan to show what assurances

:01:12.:01:12.

Last year, the Government wrote to Nissan offering

:01:13.:01:16.

guarantees, but is refusing to provide the details.

:01:17.:01:19.

Through a Freedom of Information request in October, the SNP wanted

:01:20.:01:23.

The SNP's now complained to the Information Commissioner,

:01:24.:01:28.

calling for an urgent probe into what they say is a "desperate

:01:29.:01:33.

The government says the letter would only be released

:01:34.:01:37.

once its details were no longer "business-sensitive".

:01:38.:01:41.

From today, collections from the now closed Durham Light Infantry Museum

:01:42.:01:44.

were opened to the public, relocated to a new site

:01:45.:01:46.

The university's Palace Green Library is the new home

:01:47.:01:55.

Durham County Council said the permanent museum at Aykley Heads

:01:56.:01:59.

of delivery, a big collection centre of delivery, a big collection centre

:02:00.:02:11.

at Spennymoor where you can see any of the Medel collections. The

:02:12.:02:17.

archive is still in the original place. Then we've got this space

:02:18.:02:21.

which is the Durham Light Infantry collections Gallery. It's nice that

:02:22.:02:24.

they're keeping it alive although we're quite sad that they're closing

:02:25.:02:29.

the bigger exhibition. This is in a lovely place, lots of people visit

:02:30.:02:34.

the Cathedral and many more people might pop in on spec and see it.

:02:35.:02:41.

It's sad that it had to move. I had visited it where it was. That is sad

:02:42.:02:47.

that through circumstances it has had to move here, but this is

:02:48.:02:49.

excellent. They were hoping for a semifinal

:02:50.:02:56.

place in the FA Cup but Middlesborough's Cup

:02:57.:02:58.

dreams are over. They were beaten at the Riverside

:02:59.:03:00.

2-0 by Manchester City. There has not been a lot to cheer at

:03:01.:03:06.

the Riverside this season, but a trip to Wembley could have changed

:03:07.:03:09.

all that. A key FA Cup fixture which, prior to kick-off, was all

:03:10.:03:14.

set to raise morale. We need something to kick-start the end of

:03:15.:03:18.

the season. I'm hoping we could win, but Middlesbrough give you

:03:19.:03:26.

surprises. It would pep them up, I think, and make them play better, I

:03:27.:03:30.

hope. But Middlesbrough's FA Cup dream wasn't to be. David Silva

:03:31.:03:36.

scoring just two minutes in and Sergio Aguero sealing victory in the

:03:37.:03:41.

67th minute. I think we were very nervous. I think they were beaten

:03:42.:03:44.

before they went out. Lots of effort, worked hard, just lacked

:03:45.:03:50.

quality. He's not going to change his formation after being here three

:03:51.:03:53.

years, but he has to do something. Monday morning Aitor Karanka's men

:03:54.:03:59.

will be back to business, staying in the Premier League now their main

:04:00.:04:00.

priority. And in the FA Vase

:04:01.:04:04.

semi-final first leg... Better news for South Shields. They

:04:05.:04:10.

won 3-1. In the Championship, Newcastle lost

:04:11.:04:17.

at home to Fulham 3-1. In League 2, Carlisle lost

:04:18.:04:20.

to Cambridge United 3-0 and Hartlepool lost

:04:21.:04:22.

to Notts County 2-1. York drew 2-2 with Sutton United,

:04:23.:04:23.

Gateshead beat Wrexham 2-0. Berwick Rangers lost

:04:24.:04:26.

to Cowdenbeath 3-1. It was a bit wet in many parts

:04:27.:04:27.

today. Let's get the weather now

:04:28.:04:34.

for the rest of the weekend, Plenty of mist and Merck but we have

:04:35.:04:44.

also got some rain making its way in from the West. A view breaks here

:04:45.:04:50.

and temperatures holding up between eight and ten, a mild night. I'm the

:04:51.:04:54.

rain we have got a slice of something a touch brighter before

:04:55.:04:58.

the next area of rain pushes in. It's breaking up over the Pennines

:04:59.:05:02.

and it is brighter behind that. Something much drier and brighter

:05:03.:05:04.

for the new working week. Good evening. Some of us managed to

:05:05.:05:20.

get some decent weather today, not everybody but some of us. Lovely

:05:21.:05:24.

picture from a weather watcher in Northern Ireland, Enniskillen, and

:05:25.:05:27.

in Northern Ireland we have the warmest day of the year for Northern

:05:28.:05:32.

Ireland, 16 Celsius. The Southeast a little warmer weather cloud broke

:05:33.:05:37.

up, 18 Celsius, but we have also had some light rain, and if anything

:05:38.:05:42.

this coming even in the clouds will thicken up again in some areas, so

:05:43.:05:47.

for a number of us it is going to be a cloudy and damp night. Mild at

:05:48.:05:52.

around nine or 10 degrees. Tomorrow, a mix of a day, rain in the morning

:05:53.:05:56.

across the south-east, London, Lincolnshire and maybe some sunshine

:05:57.:06:00.

across central areas of the UK, and then a few spots of rain in the

:06:01.:06:05.

west, and further west some sunshine. A mixed bag on the way.

:06:06.:06:08.
