:02:21.:02:29.

and said, "I'll be back soon, Nana," and I said, "don't

:02:43.:02:44.

Somebody phoned us and said, "your grandson's in the infirmary."

:02:45.:02:50.

Went down there and sat there until he died.

:02:51.:02:53.

Needless to say, it's a very traumatic time.

I mean, his mum, she is, I don't think it's hit her,

:03:02.:03:05.

but it will, because he was living with me, you know,

It feels freezing today but it is not as cold as it was yesterday. A

lot of cloud around this afternoon and another very chilly afternoon to

:07:38.:07:41.

come, temperatures set to climb over the weekend. Rain is expected

:07:42.:07:46.

overnight so tomorrow is less cold. As we work into the early part of

:07:47.:07:50.

February, we are looking at milder conditions but also unsettled as

:07:51.:07:56.

well. As we go we have got cloud out there, some breaks across the

Yorkshire Dales, and perhaps some along the east coast but this

:08:02.:08:06.

afternoon it will be grey across the Pennines, mist elsewhere. It will

:08:07.:08:12.

feel damp out there although I do not think there will be any real

:08:13.:08:15.

rain to speak. Temperatures getting up to around two or three degrees.

:08:16.:08:22.

Still feeling pretty cold. Through this evening and overnight, we are

:08:23.:08:31.

expecting some name, it will not be as -- some rain, not as cold as last

:08:32.:08:38.

night. Any early cloud and rain will move away eastwards, it might take

:08:39.:08:43.

time to the Far East but elsewhere we should see some sunny spells and

:08:44.:08:47.

three showers sprinkled across the Pennines, and temperatures in the

:08:48.:08:52.

high of six or seven. The odd wintry sharp perhaps.
