:01:01.:01:05.

Today from the BBC. Tonight, a ten- year-old child who was born a boy

:01:05.:01:10.

has started the new school term as a girl. The child whose identity be

:01:10.:01:13.

have agree frodtect has gender dysphoria, where a person feels

:01:13.:01:16.

trapped within the body of the wrong sex. Her mother says becoming

:01:16.:01:21.

a girl is not a phase or a choice but who her daughter really is.

:01:21.:01:28.

More now from our reporter. would always choose the stereo

:01:28.:01:32.

typical girls toys. So if you put a truck in front of her, she wouldn't

:01:32.:01:38.

want to play with that. She would want to play with the Bar by.

:01:38.:01:42.

Saffron, not her real name describes how from two-and-a-half

:01:42.:01:46.

her child acted like a girl. Throughout the interview she

:01:46.:01:50.

referred to ten-year-old Libby, not her real name, as her daughter

:01:50.:01:54.

which is how the family have regarded her for years. It was Nat.

:01:54.:02:01.

She grew up, through the years, and just we just new knew that this was

:02:01.:02:07.

the way she was. Mum was buying my boys clothes, so, but whenever I

:02:07.:02:11.

wept over my friends' house I used to dress up in her clothes and get

:02:11.:02:19.

her make up on and stuff. It was, it was nice. Libby has gender

:02:19.:02:23.

dysphoria. Physically she is a boy, but in every other way feels female.

:02:23.:02:27.

Now she is batting with what the family call a media circus. After

:02:27.:02:30.

news leaked she returned to school at the start of term, dressed for

:02:30.:02:35.

the first time as a girl. I was scared what was going to happen,

:02:35.:02:42.

but I was really excited. For me going back as me. Is it too young

:02:42.:02:52.
:02:52.:02:54.

to have made this decision? No. has been our daughter from age two-

:02:54.:02:59.

and-a-half, really. Saffron says staff and other parns have been

:02:59.:03:04.

supportive but a minority aren't. She was being called a freak long

:03:04.:03:09.

before she went back to school as a girl. They will never understand, I

:03:09.:03:13.

don't expect them to. I don't want them do I don't want them calling

:03:13.:03:17.

her a freak. The family hope this will help others. This is is a

:03:17.:03:24.

child and you live with it and you accept your child. No matter what.

:03:24.:03:29.

Libby will take hormone blockers when she is 12. Beyond that the

:03:29.:03:36.

family is take one day at a time. Jaguar Land Rover has been the

:03:36.:03:40.

undisputed star of this year's Frankfurt Motor Show, unveiling not

:03:40.:03:44.

one but three new concept cars, all designed here in the Midlands.

:03:44.:03:50.

Yesterday, it was a modern version of the classic E-type Jag. Today

:03:51.:03:56.

the DC 100 car, successor to the Land Rover Defender, the favourite

:03:56.:03:59.

of farmers the world over. Our correspondent has been in Frankfurt

:03:59.:04:06.

and sent this report. The undoubted star of this year's show, the CX16,

:04:06.:04:11.

two seater forts car, described as the successor to the E-type. It is

:04:12.:04:17.

the car many Jaguar fans have been waiting for. The E-type is such an

:04:17.:04:22.

iconic car. To reproduce that could be a mistake. It has worked well

:04:22.:04:27.

for brands like mini. But I think the pressure is on Jaguar to

:04:27.:04:31.

reinvent itself and to be more modern. But Land Rover was doing

:04:32.:04:37.

its best to steal the show with another iconic model. This time the

:04:37.:04:42.

DC 100 concept. The defender has a successful 63 year ris -- history.

:04:42.:04:46.

It is the model that gave Land Rover its name. Jaguar Land Rover

:04:46.:04:50.

has announced that production of the Defender at its factory will

:04:51.:04:55.

end in 2015, this DC 100 or something similar to this will

:04:55.:05:01.

replace it. For the company's design director refreshing the

:05:01.:05:04.

Defender hasn't been easy. It is about recognising that heritage,

:05:04.:05:08.

the uniqueness of that vehicle, but it needs to be looking forward.

:05:08.:05:13.

There are things that we couldn't do today, that were done back then,

:05:13.:05:15.

particularly in terms of legislation. Although it was well

:05:15.:05:20.

received it is clear ha the DC 100 and its sportier sister unveiled

:05:20.:05:24.

today, are taking Land Rover in a new direction. There is a lot of

:05:24.:05:28.

new Land Rover owners, and if you remember the press conference they

:05:28.:05:31.

were talking about staggering Newmarket, they are looking at

:05:31.:05:36.

China, rush, South America. The market is moving on. We are not

:05:36.:05:40.

just talking about Warwickshire farmers here. For the Indian owners

:05:40.:05:46.

Tata it was a big day and the chairman on hand to witness the

:05:46.:05:51.

unveiling's talked to Midlands Today. It is a lot of promise. A

:05:51.:05:55.

lot of excitement in what we have in new products. Coming from the

:05:55.:06:00.

company. I think this is just a teaser, if I might say so. Having

:06:00.:06:05.

survived one of the toughest recessions in their collective

:06:05.:06:09.

history, Jaguar and Land Rover are powering ahead. Today's unveiling

:06:09.:06:18.

showed how quickly that is happening. Exciting day there. We

:06:18.:06:25.

hope to be talking to Peter live in Frankfurt in a few moments from now.

:06:25.:06:30.

Well, still to come tonight. Changing the boundaries. While the

:06:30.:06:38.

West Midlands could lose five MPs under changes to constituencies.

:06:38.:06:41.

You have caused untold grief and suffering to already grieving

:06:41.:06:46.

families. The words of a magistrate passing sentence on a man who

:06:46.:06:50.

created abusive internet material about dead girls. Sean Duffy was

:06:50.:06:54.

convicted of what is known as traling. Writing offensive message,

:06:54.:06:59.

taking over a dead person's cyber identity, and posting macabre

:06:59.:07:02.

videos. Three families have this region who have lost teenage girls

:07:02.:07:09.

were among Duffy's victims. Lauren Drew was just 14 when she died from

:07:09.:07:14.

a suspected epileptic fit at home in Gloucester. Her parents' brief

:07:14.:07:19.

was made worse by what appeared on her Facebook tribute page. There

:07:19.:07:25.

was a video made, horrific, horror music and open graves, and bodies

:07:25.:07:30.

with maggots, saying this is what I look like now. It was the work of

:07:30.:07:35.

Sean Duffy, from Reading. The unemployed 25-year-old Asperger

:07:35.:07:39.

Syndrome sufferer was described as loner, and a victim of bullying. He

:07:39.:07:42.

was sentenced today to 18 weeks in jail and banned from social

:07:42.:07:48.

networking sites for five years. Duffy posted offensive material

:07:48.:07:50.

about Staffordshire schoolgirl Hayley baits who died in a car

:07:50.:07:57.

crash in autumn of last year. And 15-year-old Natasha McBryde, who

:07:57.:08:03.

threw herself in front of a train in Bromsgrove. Natasha's father

:08:03.:08:07.

said it made him feel physically sick. My feelings towards him, is

:08:07.:08:12.

one of anger, really. Initially. That he and other people in society

:08:12.:08:19.

have to, or are able to or feel they need to stoop to such depths.

:08:19.:08:22.

There are website communities dedicated to creating taunting

:08:22.:08:29.

images and videos. The content is typically racist, and sexually

:08:29.:08:33.

explicit and some so call trolls admit to thriving on other people's

:08:33.:08:37.

pain. You can't imagine anyone's motivation for doing something to a

:08:37.:08:42.

child who has just died. But it was frustrating because we didn't know

:08:42.:08:48.

who did it, and we thought is it someone we know, and I am glad it

:08:48.:08:55.

isn't. This is the UK's first trolling conviction. Union members

:08:55.:08:59.

have voted in favour of strike action at Shropshire council. It is

:08:59.:09:03.

over plans to cut their pay by 5%. As well as changes to their

:09:03.:09:07.

conditions. The council insists pay cuts are necessary to avoid making

:09:07.:09:13.

up to 500 redundancies. It is urging Unison to continue

:09:13.:09:17.

negotiations. A 14-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of

:09:17.:09:23.

causing death by dangerous driving in Wolverhampton, after a stolen

:09:23.:09:27.

motorbike crashed, killing another teenager. He died tat scene in Penn

:09:27.:09:31.

Fields. Police say the motorbike was ridden with a pill I don't know

:09:31.:09:36.

passenger when it left the road. At the age of 91, Teresa Jones hoped

:09:36.:09:42.

to live out her days in the dimension -- diMensa centre. Her

:09:42.:09:46.

needs have been reassessed an her family have been told she can't

:09:46.:09:53.

stay there any longer. Her family have accused the NHS of putting

:09:53.:09:57.

cost before care. It wasn't possible to visit Teresa Jones. The

:09:57.:10:03.

care home didn't think it was in her best interest. She has dementia.

:10:03.:10:07.

She sometimes recognises us but reare not sure she d does.

:10:07.:10:12.

Sometimes we go and we get nothing at all. Three years ago her family

:10:12.:10:16.

who live in Shropshire says they were made to put her into a

:10:16.:10:21.

specialist care home. Now, she is being reassessed. She is not really

:10:21.:10:26.

asked for much from from the country, and it just seems to me

:10:26.:10:30.

that it is wrong to, to turn round at what is approaching the end of

:10:30.:10:36.

her life, and say "We can move you like a, like a piece of furniture,

:10:36.:10:41.

to somewhere that is cheaper." I hope they will say it is not to do

:10:41.:10:45.

with funding, but it is. They are doing it because they want to save

:10:45.:10:50.

money. At this care home the family say that Teresa gets constant

:10:50.:10:56.

supervision. They say the NHS is passing responsibility for her care

:10:56.:11:02.

to Social Services. This year NHS Telford is spending �2.75 million

:11:02.:11:08.

less on continuing care. Nobody was available for interview so they

:11:08.:11:11.

couldn't comment on individual cases. All decisions are based on

:11:11.:11:16.

assessment, and cost isn't taken into consideration. Decisions are

:11:16.:11:21.

taken in partnership where the Local Authority, and the family.

:11:21.:11:27.

Three years down the line the dementia has got worse. They said

:11:27.:11:33.

she can go into a residential unit which is unbelievable. Just don't

:11:33.:11:37.

understand it at all. Tina Dene says they are appealing. It is

:11:37.:11:43.

giving her sleepless nights but he will do all she can. Her mother is

:11:43.:11:53.

still her mother after all. Much more ahead in the programme.

:11:53.:11:56.

Including the priceless collection of Wedgwood from the Potteries and

:11:56.:12:02.

why it could be lost forever. Could the gales return or is that it for

:12:02.:12:12.
:12:12.:12:14.

this week? All the details coming A computer trader, fears this, his

:12:14.:12:18.

could be the first business to fail because of last month's riots. Sham

:12:19.:12:23.

Sharma lost �50,000 of stock and wants to put up security shutters

:12:23.:12:27.

as protect snun the future. But he needs to wait for planning

:12:27.:12:34.

permission. The delay could prove fate toll the business. Like bees

:12:34.:12:39.

round a honey pot A YouTube video captures the moment looters move in

:12:39.:12:44.

on this computer shop in Broad Street. Inside the owner was held

:12:44.:12:49.

by the neck, as round �50,000 worth of stock was stolen. Today the shop

:12:49.:12:53.

is closed and stand empty. The proprietor says he is afraid to

:12:53.:12:59.

restock until he can make his premises secure with metal

:12:59.:13:02.

shuttering. But for that he needs planning permission, by the time he

:13:02.:13:06.

gets it he fears it could be too late. The result of me not being

:13:06.:13:12.

able to open the business again, it is put a pressure on the three jobs.

:13:12.:13:17.

So, if I carry on much longer, like this. I might not be able to open

:13:17.:13:21.

again. Other shops in Wolverhampton and many more across the rest of

:13:21.:13:26.

the was wids were damaged by the rioters, if their insurance doesn't

:13:26.:13:30.

provide enough cover they can apply for compensation from the police an

:13:30.:13:34.

is there is a separate pot of Government money specifically set

:13:34.:13:38.

aside to help businesses get back on their feet. None of that would

:13:38.:13:42.

appear to help Sham Sharma and his planning problem. The City Council

:13:42.:13:45.

suggested he goes for internal shuttering which could be fitted

:13:45.:13:49.

immediately but they say for what he wants there are rules. It is

:13:49.:13:54.

clear while the riots may be fading in many people's memories for

:13:54.:13:57.

businesses like this the impact is still very real and still very

:13:57.:14:05.

damaging. A Wolverhampton council told us that financial help with

:14:05.:14:10.

business rates and to improve security would be available to Sham

:14:10.:14:14.

Sharma. The riots of last month brought into focus the relationship

:14:14.:14:18.

between police and young people. Police see improving relations as

:14:18.:14:26.

one o their top priorities. Let us go live to Joan Cummings. There is

:14:26.:14:30.

lots of smiles here tonight. This is the young celebration, which is

:14:30.:14:34.

basically a consultation process, with West Midlands authority. There

:14:34.:14:38.

has been cheers here-with the young people celebrating themselves and

:14:38.:14:42.

why not? But of course last month we did see some very distressing

:14:42.:14:47.

scenes out on the streets, and tonight the youngsters themselves

:14:47.:14:51.

are going to be asked what did they think caused it. Tom, what is your

:14:51.:14:55.

answer? What do you think caused the riots? I believe it was a

:14:55.:15:00.

minority of people who wanted an excuse to rebel, and they kind of

:15:00.:15:05.

did that, in a way that was violent and not very nice. It is a minority

:15:05.:15:10.

of people. It doesn't display young people portraying them how we

:15:10.:15:15.

should be. Kirby, you involved with getting a space for people in

:15:15.:15:19.

Coventry. Why bother? Does it work. I think it does. If young people

:15:19.:15:23.

start working with the police and like the council at a younger age,

:15:23.:15:27.

it gives a longer time to work together and make things bet for

:15:27.:15:30.

people who are here and just better opportunities for everyone all

:15:30.:15:35.

round, and a better understanding of each other. This isn't really

:15:35.:15:39.

working, these are the good kids what about the rest? One has to

:15:39.:15:45.

accept that in any community there are those children who are greatly

:15:45.:15:48.

challenged, but we still cannot afford give up on those children,

:15:49.:15:52.

they are human being, they have a life. As a community and society,

:15:52.:15:57.

we have got to find a way of working to enhance all our

:15:57.:16:00.

communities to be good citizens of the West Midlands. I have to say we

:16:00.:16:04.

have already heard tonight, that the views of the youngsters here

:16:04.:16:08.

tonight, will be taken into account, we have the Chief Constable coming

:16:08.:16:11.

later, we have the chairman of the police authority, they going to

:16:11.:16:14.

listen and they say they will make a difference. Now back to you in

:16:14.:16:21.

the studio. West Midlands will lose five MPs as part of a plan to cut

:16:21.:16:25.

the cost of Parliament by reducing the number of Parliamentary seats

:16:25.:16:30.

by 50. At the moment, the West Midlands has 63 MEPs of Parliament.

:16:30.:16:35.

That could down to 58 in any election after 2013. Big city

:16:35.:16:38.

losers could include Birmingham and Stoke-on-Trent. Loud low and

:16:39.:16:46.

Leominster which return two MPs could merge, leave Philip Dunn and

:16:46.:16:51.

Bill Wiggin to fight it out for a single seat. Why is this happening?

:16:51.:16:55.

Is it about saving money? That is part of it. The other big point ant

:16:56.:17:01.

this, is that at the moment, some constituencies have as few as

:17:01.:17:07.

55,000 voters, others have as many as t 0 thousand so the big idea is

:17:07.:17:11.

to standardise them round about 76,000. Some MP also lose their

:17:11.:17:16.

seats. They won't be thrilled about that. There are predictions of

:17:16.:17:20.

internal warfare. A challenge nor the whips. Imagine the potential

:17:20.:17:24.

fall out between three Black Country civet MP, mar Joe James,

:17:24.:17:28.

James Morris and Chris Kelly who could find themselves competing for

:17:28.:17:33.

two seats. A similar situation in grum. The other way round for two

:17:33.:17:36.

Labour shadow minister, who may find their constituencies merge

:17:36.:17:41.

into one. Then you have this extraordinary situation with two

:17:41.:17:45.

Conservative MPs on collision courses, if their constituencies

:17:45.:17:50.

are merged into one seat, would you believe it straddling the

:17:50.:17:55.

Shropshire Herefordshire border. will be helpful for each party to

:17:55.:17:58.

work out selection rules so it is clear the basis on which colleagues

:17:58.:18:02.

can stand for their existing seats or neighbours seats. It is

:18:02.:18:05.

difficult and when you lose your constituents which some people will

:18:05.:18:12.

have, that is a painful process, because these are people you work

:18:12.:18:15.

for, you become deeply found of, proud of. I love my constituency

:18:15.:18:19.

and I don't want to lose any of it. There will be winners and loser, so

:18:19.:18:25.

which parties will win and which will lose out? Well funny thing it

:18:25.:18:31.

seems the boundary reviews are to the advantage of whoever is in

:18:31.:18:34.

Government at the time. In this case in our region Labour might

:18:34.:18:39.

expect to lose the most seat, the Conservatives the fewest, which

:18:39.:18:43.

would improve the Tories's position against the others by two or three

:18:43.:18:50.

seats. Thank you P The Wedgwood museum has been recognised by the

:18:50.:18:54.

run yun has been of international significance. Yet the future of

:18:54.:18:59.

what is arguably the finest vam Micks collection in the world hangs

:18:59.:19:06.

in the balance. It hangs on the result of a high court case. This

:19:07.:19:11.

museum is dedicated to the people who have made objects of great

:19:11.:19:14.

beauty from the soils of Staffordshire: But this world

:19:15.:19:19.

renowned collection could be put up for sale. To the dismay of the

:19:19.:19:23.

Wedgwood family. People come from all over the world, from America,

:19:23.:19:27.

and all over Europe, and Japan, they dom Stoke-on-Trent and they

:19:27.:19:32.

look at this collection and they say, wow, this is amazing. So, it

:19:32.:19:37.

would be absolutely ridiculous for this to be scattered across the

:19:37.:19:42.

globe. This is our history. This case reinvolves round pensions.

:19:42.:19:46.

There was a pot paid into my members of the company pension

:19:46.:19:50.

scheme. A separate pot was established for the museum, into

:19:50.:19:54.

which significant donations were made. The problem came, when the

:19:54.:19:58.

company collapsed into administration, with debts. Five

:19:58.:20:03.

workers who I had into this scheme worked for the museum. The question

:20:03.:20:08.

is, whether money from this pot can be used to pay the pension funds

:20:08.:20:13.

deficit. If a Jung decides the answer is yes, the museum's

:20:13.:20:18.

treasure s could go under the hammer. Stoke-on-Trent is the

:20:18.:20:22.

Potteries. Testify founded on the ceramics industry. We are proud of

:20:22.:20:27.

that connection and that connection to Wedgwood, so to have this

:20:27.:20:31.

collection ripped away from us on an obscure legal technicality would

:20:31.:20:34.

be a cultural crime. The future of this collection is expected to be

:20:34.:20:40.

decided by the end of the year. The master potter yosh ya Wedgwood's

:20:40.:20:48.

legacy lies in the hands of a high court judge. Staying in the

:20:48.:20:51.

Potteries, stage three of the tour o Britain has taken place in and

:20:51.:20:56.

different. They were here to see a true global superstar. Cyclist Mark

Cavendish, winner of the green Jersey at the Tour de France. They

:21:21.:21:25.

waited for 45 minutes for him to emerge from his team bus, etch

:21:25.:21:30.

Cavendish's bike was worth a photo. There will be more support here,

:21:31.:21:35.

more general British support here than there is in the tour detrans.

:21:35.:21:40.

Everyone here is British. They will be cheering on the Brits so that is

:21:40.:21:44.

nice. Love Cavendish. I like watching him in the Tour de France.

:21:44.:21:52.

This was no one man race. Geraint Thomas was among the field, along

:21:52.:21:57.

with the current World Champion. It has at thracted a host of world

:21:57.:22:02.

class stars but which one will win? Today's 87 mile stage was hilly and

:22:02.:22:06.

windswept. There was an early break away of three riders but they were

:22:06.:22:11.

caught after gun hill. It all came down to a dramatic bunch finish.

of people, a lot of people come out to cheer us, and that, that is

:22:32.:22:38.

really nice of course. They are cheering you even you were beaten.

:22:38.:22:43.

Yes they do. Stoke's reputation as a cycling city continues to grow

:22:43.:22:47.

and today the likes of Mark Cavendish gave the city that extra

:22:47.:22:56.

What a great atmosphere. Quick word about cricket. The County

Championships coming to the boil. Two days to go. Warwickshire have a

first innings lead against Hampshire who will resume on 57

losing Fife wickets for five runs against Durham. To a long running

mystery that has been solved in the Cotswold. It involves a writing

:23:25.:23:31.

desk, a telegram from Noel Coward and Agatha Christie's knickers.

:23:31.:23:37.

This bureau had lain in a store room for five years. His client

:23:38.:23:43.

bought it from one of Agatha Christie's former homes. Clive took

:23:43.:23:46.

it apart and something fell out when he was working on it. This is

:23:46.:23:51.

what he found. A folded piece of paper. When he opened it he

:23:51.:23:58.

couldn't believe what he was reading. It was a telegram sent in

:23:58.:24:03.

1957 from Noel coward. Dear Agatha Christie I must congratulate you on

:24:04.:24:08.

the Mousetrap breaking the long run record. All my good wishes Noel

:24:08.:24:15.

Coward. So this is an amazing piece of history. The Mousetrap opened in

:24:15.:24:22.

1952 and clocked up nearly 2,000 performance, Noel Coward would have

:24:22.:24:29.

felt pain because the play had taken the record from his play

:24:29.:24:38.

Blyth Spirit You think a. If I have found anything of this ilk again, I

:24:38.:24:44.

should be very lucky. Seen here at the 21st an versery of the

:24:44.:24:46.

Mousetrap Agatha Christie never made any money from her play. She

:24:46.:24:52.

signed the rights over to her grandson before it opened. She was

:24:52.:24:58.

an mieder -- admirer of Noel Coward's, to have an

:24:58.:25:02.

acknowledgement of, you know, her - - achievement would have pleased

:25:02.:25:06.

her very much. It wasn't though just the telegram that Clive found.

:25:06.:25:10.

Crammed into the inside of the bureau was a receipt from a

:25:10.:25:20.

lingerie and night wear company for �24 in the name of ago that city's

:25:20.:25:24.

married name. It is the telegram that stand out. Written with an

:25:24.:25:32.

honesty that people who knew Noel Coward would have come to expect. I

:25:33.:25:37.

don't claim to be an expect, that was a lot of money. �24. Should

:25:37.:25:43.

have gone Marx and Spencers or anywhere es of that ilk. There are

:25:43.:25:46.

anywhere es of that ilk. There are many stores like that. We will get

:25:46.:25:50.

into trouble. Well, the wind were tamer today but you can breathe a

:25:50.:25:53.

sigh of relief because I think it will stay that way for the rest of

:25:53.:25:57.

the week. Just a few slight variations however. But, we can

:25:57.:26:01.

take a look at the isobars at the moment. We are on in the back end

:26:01.:26:04.

of the vicious isobars from yesterday, but our attention turns

:26:04.:26:08.

to that front that moves down the the north and the high pressure

:26:08.:26:11.

that sweeps in from the south-west. As it pulls away, that opens the

:26:11.:26:15.

door to a couple of more fronts, so, let us take a look at tonight, and

:26:15.:26:20.

we can see that there is a bit of cloud round the region, but it is

:26:20.:26:22.

clearer towards the south and because of that temperatures

:26:22.:26:27.

tonight will drop a bit lower, to about 10C. Elsewhere lows round 11

:26:28.:26:31.

or 12. Row can see the effects of that front that is heading down

:26:31.:26:35.

from the north later on. Silt a decaying feature so it will only

:26:35.:26:38.

produce a fou showers for that part of the region and there is more

:26:38.:26:42.

cloud as wellment so for tomorrow it is a fairly pleasant day, I

:26:42.:26:45.

think for the start of the north of the region, I think it could be

:26:45.:26:48.

cloudier there, with some dribs and drabs of rain. That dies away and

:26:48.:26:51.

we start to see the sunshine breaking through during the

:26:51.:26:55.

afternoon. So that will take the temperatures up to 17 or 18

:26:55.:26:58.

tomorrow. Slightly warmer than today, and more so because the

:26:58.:27:02.

winds will be lighter than that westerly direction, just a brisk

:27:02.:27:07.

breeze of round 10-13mph. For Thursday, has the high pressure

:27:07.:27:13.

positions itself over us, the winds are slack, so it is much calmer day,

:27:13.:27:17.

temperatures may be a little lower at 17C, that is because we have a

:27:17.:27:20.

at 17C, that is because we have a lot of cloud that may produce rain.

:27:20.:27:26.

Let us look at the main headlines. The cost of living rises again as

:27:26.:27:29.

inflation gets close to a three year high. And here, a mother tells
