Welcome to Midlands Today. The headlines tonight: up to 1000 new

:00:08.:00:11.

jobs in a comeback for car-making in Coventry.

:00:11.:00:17.

It is hugely symbolic to bring car manufacturing back to Browns Lane

:00:17.:00:20.

plant which was the spiritual home of Jaguar.

:00:20.:00:23.

Controversy over a new drama into the police investigation at about

:00:23.:00:27.

Fred West. We should engage with these things and these things

:00:27.:00:31.

should be discussed. The school was destroyed by fire

:00:31.:00:35.

and now children will be starting school in a stately homes.

:00:35.:00:39.

And why are regaining their league status could be on the cards for

:00:39.:00:49.
:00:49.:00:57.

Good evening. Welcome to the start of the weekend. A comeback for car-

:00:57.:01:01.

making in Coventry. Jaguar's former Browns Lane plant

:01:02.:01:07.

is partially reopening. Automotive specialist CPP Global Holdings is

:01:07.:01:11.

moving in with a potential investment of at �75 million. That

:01:11.:01:15.

could create up to 1000 jobs. The same number lost when Jaguar

:01:15.:01:22.

stopped production in 2005. A year later, 2000 jobs went as Peugeot

:01:22.:01:26.

left Ryton. Different to the days when up to 80,000 people and their

:01:26.:01:33.

living from car-making and Coventry was known as Britain's Motor City.

:01:33.:01:37.

The Browns Lane plant in Coventry, once the envy of the world, it

:01:37.:01:42.

produced iconic sought-after cars but since 2005, this is what most

:01:42.:01:47.

of the site has been reduced to. Today was a turning-point. CPP

:01:47.:01:51.

Global Holdings plans to start production of high quality

:01:51.:01:55.

components and specialist cars including the Spyker on the site.

:01:55.:01:58.

We should not underestimate the history of the site. Around the

:01:58.:02:03.

world, people know the names. I think it adds to our story of which

:02:03.:02:09.

adds to our project. -- product. I think Coventry will be the centre

:02:09.:02:15.

for low-volume vehicle design many factoring. Come to re-already has

:02:15.:02:19.

five sites across Coventry employing 250 people. By bringing

:02:19.:02:23.

all production to Browns Lane plant, it plans to create hundreds more

:02:23.:02:28.

jobs. What do those who worked in the city's car industry make of

:02:28.:02:33.

this new chapter in its motoring heritage? Of course it is good news,

:02:33.:02:39.

provided you can get the skilled people. More work for people. I

:02:39.:02:46.

wish it well but it is perhaps the car for the Times, but it is not as

:02:46.:02:50.

I remember it. A it is 50 years ago since this classic a chap Europe

:02:51.:02:58.

was first produced at Browns Lane plant. -- classic Jaguar. The city

:02:58.:03:02.

council says it is prove that Coventry's future as well as its

:03:02.:03:07.

past is synonymous with cars. That is in a city currently with an

:03:07.:03:12.

unemployment rate 2% higher than the national average. I am hoping

:03:12.:03:16.

that when CPP Global Holdings take over the 23 acres on this side and

:03:16.:03:20.

start manufacturing, that will encourage other manufacturers to

:03:20.:03:25.

move on to other parts of the side. If all goes to plan, the multi-

:03:25.:03:30.

million-pound redevelopment project will start next spring.

:03:30.:03:33.

With us now is of Professor David Bailey from Coventry University

:03:33.:03:38.

Business School. I suppose we should not get too excited but it

:03:38.:03:42.

sounds like good news? Let us remember that when Jaguar left,

:03:42.:03:46.

there were over 1000 job losses. CPP Global Holdings will not create

:03:46.:03:50.

anything like that but they have taken a big chunk of the site and

:03:50.:03:54.

it could lead to more engineering jobs. Why are CPP Global Holdings

:03:54.:04:00.

doing this at this time? They have built up a portfolio of businesses

:04:00.:04:07.

and they are expanding. In making the Spyker sports car, there is big

:04:07.:04:10.

overseas opportunities there for growth potential. The what does it

:04:10.:04:15.

mean for Coventry and the motor industry? Symbolically it is hugely

:04:15.:04:20.

important. It also shows that there is a great skilled engineering

:04:20.:04:25.

based in Coventry and a lot of Nis producers in things like low carbon

:04:25.:04:30.

vehicles. A small scale renaissance. The thing we will be able to call

:04:30.:04:35.

it the Motor City again? A niche producer in the future. It is it is

:04:35.:04:41.

all good news. Meanwhile, the annual motoring fast

:04:41.:04:45.

one is moving to Stoneleigh Park. A celebration of British car-making

:04:45.:04:48.

was cancelled this year for the first time but next year's's

:04:48.:04:52.

festival will be at the former Royal Showground. The we will be

:04:52.:04:56.

linking up with universities and colleges in Coventry and

:04:56.:04:59.

Warwickshire are so they can show off their developments. That does

:04:59.:05:03.

the same for automotive companies in Coventry and Warwickshire, of

:05:03.:05:07.

which there are many, they can show off their latest of elements.

:05:07.:05:13.

ahead, we may be into September, but there's still a chance to catch

:05:13.:05:18.

a summer music festival this weekend. Details later.

:05:19.:05:23.

A controversial drama about the Gloucester serial killer Fred West

:05:23.:05:27.

is to be screened this weekend. It is called "Appropriate Adult"

:05:27.:05:30.

and it tells the story of the relationship between Fred West and

:05:30.:05:37.

a housewife who was asked to sit with him during police interviews.

:05:37.:05:43.

I love Rose and I love... But Anna was the one. "Appropriate Adult",

:05:43.:05:47.

Fred West is played on the screen with unnerving realism by Dominic

:05:47.:05:51.

West. The drama explores how the mass murderer manipulated this

:05:51.:05:55.

woman, Janet Leach, who sat in on police interviews but crucially

:05:55.:06:01.

West told her things he would not tell detectives. She called me to

:06:01.:06:10.

warn me. When I got home, we have five minutes together and we agreed

:06:10.:06:16.

we would tell them it was all me. With the case nearly 20 years old,

:06:16.:06:19.

Fred West's daughter has reportedly criticised the producers for making

:06:19.:06:23.

the drama but it is a decision they defend. That is something that we

:06:23.:06:27.

have registered very strongly but the thing is that if you say that

:06:27.:06:31.

you can never discuss any difficult subject because somebody directly

:06:31.:06:36.

affected does not want you to, that could mean, for example, we do not

:06:36.:06:40.

discuss the Holocaust or the Vietnam war the Second World War

:06:40.:06:44.

where as we know atrocious things happened. The worst case is of

:06:44.:06:48.

course the story that will never go away. Hilary Allison was the press

:06:48.:06:51.

officer for the police at the time and says there is a place for

:06:51.:06:55.

dramas like this. Lots of aspects of the investigation have been

:06:55.:07:00.

looked at and used elsewhere. It is really important that other aspects

:07:00.:07:05.

of the inquiry, including the role of Janet Leach should be looked

:07:05.:07:09.

back. As long as it is treated sensitively, it is a positive thing

:07:09.:07:14.

to happen. This is the focal point of the West murders. The house was

:07:15.:07:18.

demolished soon after the investigation. It was a dark

:07:18.:07:22.

chapter in Gloucester's history but the hope is that as time has gone

:07:22.:07:25.

on the perception of the city has changed. We have achieved a lot

:07:25.:07:30.

since then. We have got plans for the future. It is a lot different

:07:30.:07:35.

than it was then. It is going to be even greater in the future. Janet

:07:35.:07:39.

Leach admits that she made mistakes in her dealings with Fred West and

:07:39.:07:43.

work with producers on "Appropriate Adult" to ensure the real story of

:07:43.:07:50.

the crucial relationship could finally be told.

:07:50.:07:53.

Fred West could never be tried for his crimes because he killed

:07:53.:07:57.

himself while on remand in prison in Birmingham. "Appropriate Adult"

:07:57.:08:01.

is being shown on ITV won on Sunday evening.

:08:01.:08:04.

A thousand people have signed a petition calling for better safety

:08:04.:08:08.

outside a school after the death of a 12-year-old who was knocked down

:08:08.:08:11.

by a bus. Since Courtney Holdcroft died in

:08:11.:08:19.

June, there has been a concerted campaign for a road crossing patrol.

:08:19.:08:22.

The bus-stop outside the Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy is

:08:22.:08:28.

quiet today. Once term starts, it will be thronging. This is where

:08:28.:08:32.

12-year-old Courtney Holdcroft died. She was crossing the road after a

:08:32.:08:36.

school concert practice. 1000 people have called on the local

:08:36.:08:40.

council to make this road safer for children. This petition sadly was

:08:40.:08:44.

raised by the death of Courtney but it is not just about that, it is

:08:44.:08:47.

about the future of the children who come to the school and to make

:08:47.:08:51.

sure that we never used another child on this road. Following her

:08:51.:08:54.

death in June, there were many tributes laid outside the school

:08:54.:09:00.

and her family spoke of their loss. She was so confident. Everything

:09:00.:09:05.

that I could ever dream of. She wanted something, she would do it.

:09:05.:09:09.

If I could swap places with her, I would give anything to, anything at

:09:09.:09:15.

all. A new academy has been built here and as the school at -- school

:09:15.:09:22.

prepares for the beginning of term, there is much wilful improve road

:09:22.:09:26.

safety. A you cannot put a price on the life of a child. Anything that

:09:26.:09:30.

we can do around schools, that would be a great way of making sure

:09:30.:09:34.

that we can protect other children in the future. Moving the bus-stops

:09:34.:09:38.

is one option under consideration. Campaigners would also like to see

:09:38.:09:43.

a crossing installed. This road safety petition will be presented

:09:43.:09:47.

to Stoke City councillors when they meet next week. The hope is that

:09:47.:09:53.

the weight of public support will lead to changes.

:09:53.:09:59.

Other news, you pay online retailer Amazon is expecting a flood of job

:09:59.:10:03.

seekers after inviting applications for 900 posts at its new

:10:03.:10:08.

Staffordshire distribution centre. The company is moving in to raise

:10:08.:10:11.

700,000 square foot warehouse in Rugeley. The building has been

:10:11.:10:15.

empty for two years. There is a rethink on a decision to

:10:15.:10:20.

cut services for deaf children in Stoke-on-Trent. It comes after a

:10:20.:10:26.

National Deaf Children's charity took court action accusing the city

:10:26.:10:30.

council of being back less. Only three teachers would have been left

:10:30.:10:36.

for a 200 deaf children in the city. Back to lessons next week and for

:10:36.:10:39.

pupils at a school devastated by fire earlier this year, the new

:10:39.:10:40.

term brings something quite different.

:10:41.:10:45.

They are moving into part of a stately home which has brought a

:10:45.:10:52.

touch of class into the classrooms. Welcome, and interesting 18th

:10:52.:10:56.

century mansion just a couple of miles from Birmingham city centre.

:10:57.:11:00.

One-time home to injured soldiers in the First World War, it has also

:11:00.:11:06.

been home to a group of nuns. Now it is home to 360 schoolchildren. A

:11:06.:11:10.

devastating fire last April which caused �1.8 million worth of damage

:11:10.:11:17.

was the catalyst to them ending up here. The city council has paid

:11:17.:11:21.

�50,000 for alterations over the summer. We have got storage rooms

:11:21.:11:25.

which is something that we did not have before and we have got

:11:25.:11:29.

adequate classroom space as well. We have had an improved playground

:11:29.:11:33.

area, a tarmac area which is now a sports court so we have got netball

:11:33.:11:38.

courts and football courts. We are very happy with the improvements.

:11:38.:11:42.

Even with a portable toilet block to one side, it is an inspirational

:11:42.:11:46.

place for the children to learn. They love the environment. They

:11:46.:11:52.

have actually rebranded the school to call it a Hogwarts. There is a

:11:52.:11:59.

beautiful wooden staircase here. They have even named the teachers

:11:59.:12:03.

characters from Harry Potter as well. Staff volunteered to come in

:12:03.:12:08.

today to help get everything ready for the new terms. It is -- it will

:12:08.:12:11.

be nice to see it full of happy children. It is interesting to see

:12:11.:12:16.

how well the school has adapted and fits into the building. This term

:12:16.:12:21.

at Hogwarts then, they hope to be back at their old school by next

:12:21.:12:31.
:12:31.:12:36.

It is a lovely quiet corner. This is perhaps a pertinent

:12:36.:12:40.

question after last month's riots. Can music turn around the lives of

:12:40.:12:44.

young people? Children had been taking part in a programme in

:12:44.:12:49.

Birmingham which uses music to make them think about choices in their

:12:49.:12:51.

lives. They will work with teenagers who had been excluded

:12:51.:13:00.

from mainstream education. These boys have both been expelled

:13:00.:13:04.

from their mainstream schools. They are now pupils of Creating Higher

:13:04.:13:09.

Heights in Birmingham. It is a non- profit community organisation that

:13:09.:13:14.

provides an alternative education service using music. Meeting the

:13:14.:13:18.

wrong people on the street. I was kicked out of school. Them I got

:13:18.:13:22.

invited to come to Creating Higher Heights. I had been behaving much

:13:22.:13:29.

better and doing more staff with music. That is what I like to do.

:13:29.:13:34.

It gives me something to do. I like music, and if I did not have music

:13:34.:13:41.

I would be out stealing other stuff. But now the service is under threat.

:13:41.:13:47.

Unfortunately, on the two young people that we do have, it is not

:13:47.:13:52.

enough to sustain. These young people from mainstream schools have

:13:52.:13:57.

had their confidence boosted this summer. But during term-time, this

:13:57.:14:00.

service is one of 70 projects across Birmingham where pupils can

:14:00.:14:06.

be referred to if they are excluded from school. The city council says

:14:06.:14:09.

budgets in alternative education are not being squeezed, but it is a

:14:09.:14:13.

competitive industry. It is important to use music and sports

:14:13.:14:17.

as a place where young people can develop, if they do not have that

:14:17.:14:22.

they will be suppressed. And suppressed young people means

:14:22.:14:25.

writing young people. If you give them a place where they can grow,

:14:25.:14:30.

her career, they will become the founders of tomorrow's companies in

:14:30.:14:34.

arts and music. Although many of the students have talked about the

:14:34.:14:37.

benefits of the service, the reality is that is more pupils are

:14:37.:14:47.
:14:47.:14:47.

not referred in the new academic year, this facility could close.

:14:47.:14:52.

We will have more on music a bit later.

:14:52.:14:56.

At the festival season draws to a close, I will be finding out how

:14:56.:15:02.

events like this manage to survive in such an overcrowded market.

:15:02.:15:05.

But what will the weather be like for people going to Festival? Ben

:15:05.:15:09.

Rich can tell us. It has been unbeatable start to

:15:09.:15:13.

September. There will be changes over the weekend, with some rain

:15:13.:15:17.

and it will be a bit cooler. You can join me for the details and a

:15:17.:15:27.
:15:27.:15:29.

Sport now a. The big day is nearly here for fans of the Worcester

:15:29.:15:34.

Warriors, he returned to rugby's Premiership tomorrow. Nothing is

:15:34.:15:41.

being left to chance. The ground will be sparkling, and the players

:15:41.:15:43.

had been giving their all in preparation for life back in the

:15:43.:15:53.

Premiership. It is a World Cup here, so some of these big teams have

:15:53.:15:58.

their stars missing, so it is a great opportunity. To come up in

:15:58.:16:01.

the World Cup here is the best -- the best pop bridge --

:16:01.:16:11.

opportunities. Good luck to the Warriors. There will be full

:16:11.:16:15.

commentary on BBC Hereford and Worcester tomorrow from 3pm.

:16:15.:16:19.

If you are a football fan you may be as a loose end this weekend,

:16:19.:16:22.

with so many players are away on international duty there are no

:16:22.:16:26.

games in the Premier League for the championship. But there is life

:16:26.:16:31.

beyond the top two divisions. Tomorrow has been designated a non-

:16:31.:16:38.

League day. Friday's fun day here. It is time

:16:38.:16:45.

to unwind before it Saturday's big game. Everything has been decided

:16:45.:16:48.

the day before by the boss, Steve Bauer. It is good to see him

:16:48.:16:53.

smiling again. That Harriers might not have much money, but at least

:16:53.:16:56.

the club is alive and kicking in the Blue Square Premier are. The

:16:56.:17:01.

last time we met, in February, Kidderminster were on the brink of

:17:01.:17:05.

administration. But the fans rallied round, disaster was averted,

:17:05.:17:10.

and now with six games gone, they are third in the table. Was there a

:17:10.:17:15.

point when you feared the worst? was pretty grim, I must admit,

:17:15.:17:19.

round about Christmas time. But we got through that, and hopefully it

:17:19.:17:29.
:17:29.:17:29.

is behind us now a. I was at Wrexham for 13 years. That is the

:17:30.:17:34.

only team I have ever played for up apart from this one. So it is a big

:17:34.:17:39.

game for me personally, but also for the team. Tomorrow has been

:17:39.:17:42.

dubbed non-League day, when clubs like Kidderminster take centre-

:17:43.:17:46.

stage and supporters of high profile teams can experience life

:17:46.:17:51.

at the low end of the football pyramid. Some of the teams are

:17:51.:17:58.

offering cut-price admission. Or you could win 100 pints in every

:17:58.:18:08.
:18:08.:18:08.

raffle by supporting Romulus in their FA Cup tie. -- �100. For the

:18:08.:18:12.

Harriers, every day is non-League day. For everyone else, tomorrow is

:18:12.:18:16.

a great reminder that not every club on Planet Football is mega

:18:16.:18:20.

rich. He is good to see Kidderminster

:18:20.:18:25.

getting strong, after that tough time.

:18:25.:18:28.

Birmingham's Hannah England has received the silver medal -- medal

:18:28.:18:33.

she won yesterday. It was a proud moment for the former University of

:18:33.:18:36.

Birmingham student he was an unexpected medallist in the 1,500

:18:36.:18:41.

metres. And there was a personal best for Emma Jackson, in the semi-

:18:41.:18:48.

final of the 800 metres. But it was not enough to qualify for the final.

:18:48.:18:53.

Everywhere you look, there seems to be a festival. Book, -- books, art,

:18:54.:18:59.

film, dance, music. And it seems every taste is catered for, from

:18:59.:19:05.

superstar Rihanna to smaller events attracting just a few hundred. Ben

:19:05.:19:09.

Sidwell is live at the Moseley Folk Festival in Birmingham. Is there a

:19:09.:19:14.

danger that the market is becoming saturated?

:19:14.:19:19.

Your are right. If you look at the UK this year, more than 400

:19:19.:19:24.

festivals. That is a lot of festivals. And the West Midlands is

:19:24.:19:28.

one of the most popular areas. We have had more than 15 here in the

:19:28.:19:33.

last couple of months. But running your own festival is a huge

:19:33.:19:36.

financial risks. Despite that, they have been popping up across the

:19:36.:19:42.

Midlands in all shores of -- sorts of shapes and sizes.

:19:42.:19:49.

Glastonbury. Reading and Leeds. V Festival. And now, Snodfest. It

:19:49.:19:54.

seems everyone these days is putting on a music festival.

:19:54.:19:58.

have a local barrister who is in charge of security. We have a local

:19:58.:20:03.

solicitor who is in charge of stage management. The picturesque village

:20:03.:20:06.

of Upton Snodsbury does not seem the sort of place where a music

:20:06.:20:10.

festival would be held. But for the past four years, villagers have

:20:10.:20:15.

come together to hold a one-day festival which attracted over 1000

:20:15.:20:20.

people last year. What is more amazing, it costs just �8,000 to

:20:20.:20:23.

put on and any profit goes towards giving their local park and

:20:23.:20:28.

playground open. The reason it does not cost that much compared to the

:20:28.:20:32.

other festivals is that it is based on a huge amount of goodwill. Not

:20:32.:20:40.

just from the people who help, but also from the bans. We have 19 bans

:20:40.:20:46.

this year, and they are all playing for nothing. Moseley Folk Festival

:20:46.:20:50.

in Birmingham is now in its 6th year, attracting 2000 people per

:20:50.:20:54.

day to the three day event. But with so many festivals to choose

:20:54.:20:58.

from, and many of them not pulling the crowds, why do festival-goers

:20:58.:21:07.

choose this one? It has a nice atmosphere. With this one, you can

:21:07.:21:14.

can down and so that the vibe. he wants to go for more than one,

:21:14.:21:19.

especially for three days. It is worth it. Over in Tamworth, they

:21:19.:21:24.

are making for -- final preparations for a new festival,

:21:24.:21:29.

Ultrasound. With Tiny Tempah and Madness investing, organisers have

:21:29.:21:34.

had to invest big money to make it a success. We are conscious of the

:21:34.:21:37.

situation in the market, and with some festivals that have not

:21:37.:21:41.

managed to sustain themselves. But from what we have looked at, a lot

:21:41.:21:46.

of them were small events that will make a jump on the bandwagon. And

:21:46.:21:48.

they have overstretched themselves this year, and they have suffered

:21:48.:21:53.

because of it. All three festivals intends to be back next year. The

:21:54.:21:57.

chances are by then, there will be even more competing for the same

:21:57.:22:03.

audience. As you can see behind me, lots of people already enjoying

:22:03.:22:10.

Moseley Folk Festival. We have said festivals are a massive financial

:22:10.:22:15.

risk. How do people managed to put so many on across the country?

:22:15.:22:19.

it has become quite trendy at the moment for everyone to put

:22:19.:22:24.

festivals on. But the main thing for us, it is their 6th year now,

:22:24.:22:27.

it is steady growth every year, taking it easy and not trying to

:22:27.:22:32.

jump through a gap. I think a lot of people tried to make a massive

:22:32.:22:35.

success straight away. The key thing for us is that we have a

:22:35.:22:40.

diverse line-up. And I think compared the other festivals,

:22:40.:22:44.

sometimes it is the same bands playing and it is quite as generic.

:22:44.:22:48.

Do you think of festival like this, it has its own audience, is that

:22:49.:22:52.

what it is about? Is you will survive you have to be slightly

:22:52.:22:56.

different? Yes, I think the line-up is the main things. That has

:22:56.:23:00.

attracted the ball straight away. And the main thing is the venue

:23:00.:23:06.

itself. We are up in Birmingham city centre but we could be in the

:23:06.:23:11.

middle of a forest, that is one of our main attractions. We were at V

:23:11.:23:18.

Festival St weeks ago, the one act of �1 million for 90 minutes. Most

:23:18.:23:27.

people cannot compete with that. Obviously the garage bands that as

:23:27.:23:33.

a bad Budget. We know our limits now it's. And we know if we sell

:23:33.:23:38.

out, what we can afford. And we just have to budget around that.

:23:38.:23:42.

Hopefully we will be here for the next 10 to 15 years or even longer

:23:42.:23:45.

have all stopped any advice for someone who is thinking of setting

:23:45.:23:51.

up a Festival? Taking the easy. I think that festivals have a

:23:51.:23:55.

successful first year and break even, and then they tried to grow

:23:55.:24:00.

too quickly. I would say take your time. They are sold out tomorrow.

:24:00.:24:07.

And a lot of people are coming down here. So I am sure anyone else who

:24:07.:24:11.

wants to start a festival in the Midlands will have success as well.

:24:11.:24:15.

He has been all over the place this summer, hasn't he? He has had a

August. Let me take you back to Bank Holiday Monday, temperatures

:24:53.:24:57.

in some parts of our region only reached 11 degrees Celsius.

:24:57.:25:02.

Elsewhere, only into the mid-teens. Today we have had it a good --

:25:02.:25:06.

added a good eight degrees to that. Can it last into the weekend? It

:25:07.:25:10.

looks as though it will be a warm start to the weekend, but things

:25:10.:25:14.

will cool down as we go through, and there will be some rain

particularly on Saturday night. You can see there is a lot of cloud out

:25:22.:25:27.

some of it has already started to move in. It will continue to stream

its way in throughout the evening. Quite low and thick cloud, it could

:25:37.:25:41.

than 12 to 14 degrees Celsius. Tomorrow morning, there will be a

:25:41.:25:46.

lot of cloud around at the start of the day. But it should be in and

:25:46.:25:51.

break through the day. Particularly, the further east you are. In the

:25:51.:25:55.

afternoon, more a thick cloud working its way into the West. Some

:25:55.:25:57.

rain for Shropshire and Staffordshire by the end of the

:25:57.:26:03.

days. But still warm. Temperatures up to 23 degrees Celsius. Tomorrow

:26:03.:26:07.

night, that weather fronts slits eastwards across the region, that

:26:07.:26:11.

will bring wet-weather for all of us. It should Clear slowly through

:26:11.:26:16.

Sunday, some doubts about how quickly that will happen. But much

:26:16.:26:21.

cooler by then as well, highs of 19 or 20 degrees Celsius. Next week,

:26:21.:26:26.

things look quite unsettled and changeable. Windy with showers on

:26:26.:26:31.

Monday, heavy showers on Tuesday, as temperatures well down. A

:26:31.:26:34.

changeable out look, but at least over the weekend the weather should

over the weekend the weather should I have been to a few festivals in

Finally, after 37 years of broadcasting five days a week for

:27:18.:27:22.

the West Midlands, Ed Doolan has presented his last show in its

current format. He is going to be taking things a little bit more

easy as he will still present a lunchtime show on Friday and a
