Hello, are welcome to Midlands Today.

:00:08.:00:13.

A new route is proposed for the controversial aged it -- HS2 rail

:00:13.:00:16.

line. We thought it was more a less

:00:16.:00:20.

planned and in place. It clear we are concerned it is coming nearer

:00:20.:00:24.

to us. No fresh water for months, the

:00:24.:00:27.

villagers having to rely on standpipes.

:00:27.:00:30.

You take it for granted that you turn the tap on and there is water

:00:31.:00:33.

there. But not be a to have a shower, not being able to wash

:00:33.:00:38.

clothes. Police act on new information into

:00:38.:00:42.

corruption at a council. And this Hallowe'en, we meet the

:00:42.:00:50.

Americans get actor who is over here. Why? To frighten a silly!

:00:50.:01:00.
:01:00.:01:07.

You see people freaking out, you Greeting, welcome to Monday's

:01:07.:01:12.

Midlands Today. Tonight, spreading the plight of further. That is the

:01:12.:01:17.

reaction from some at anti- H has to proposals - hundred campaigners

:01:17.:01:24.

to proposals for alternative route. Labour are proposing a road that

:01:25.:01:27.

follows the child -- Chilton line and would bypass look Leamington

:01:27.:01:32.

Spa and Warwick. They say it would save hundreds of acres of land. But

:01:32.:01:36.

it would also mean trains running much closer to villages previously

:01:36.:01:40.

unaffected. Our transport correspondent has been looking at

:01:40.:01:45.

today's proposals. After months of consultation, those

:01:45.:01:49.

against HS2, like this man, were once again poring over maps in an

:01:49.:01:53.

effort to work out just where the latest proposals could take the

:01:53.:01:57.

controversial line. Although for him, moving the line would be good

:01:57.:02:02.

news, he is still concerned. It is still fairly open. The bridge

:02:02.:02:07.

is not decided. The result at the moment is that Warwickshire is

:02:07.:02:11.

blighted, rather than just the preferred route.

:02:11.:02:16.

It was the Labour Party that proposed the current route, and was

:02:16.:02:20.

to the government is behind the concept, they now that you grow

:02:20.:02:24.

Labour now want the route to be moved. They wanted to follow

:02:24.:02:30.

existing transport corridors like the M40 and the Chiltern Line.

:02:30.:02:34.

This is what it could lot -- this is what it could look like. It

:02:34.:02:39.

could run to Heathrow at - opera Heathrow Airport, as they could

:02:39.:02:46.

take one of several options. So why has Labour done a U-turn?

:02:46.:02:50.

We think it is not sensible to avoid going by your main airport,

:02:50.:02:53.

and so we have suggested that it would be a better idea to do

:02:53.:02:57.

another route. Any change in the alignment could

:02:57.:03:02.

mean misery and bright in places currently unaffected by HS2, like

:03:02.:03:08.

this village near Warwick. Here, up residents are worried.

:03:08.:03:13.

Know. It will ruin a beautiful part of Warwickshire.

:03:13.:03:18.

To bring it so close to a penny populated area, it is very

:03:18.:03:24.

concerning. But so too is Labour's decision to

:03:24.:03:26.

announce his alternative proposals after a major consultation,

:03:27.:03:31.

according to the government. To put forward this route after the

:03:31.:03:36.

consultation, I think it looks suspiciously opportunistic, and it

:03:36.:03:41.

is woefully lacking in detail. Campaigners opposed to be rude say

:03:41.:03:45.

that there will be no business case for us wherever it goes, and they

:03:45.:03:49.

say it still leads to a huge white elephant.

:03:49.:03:52.

This seems to have come out of the blue?

:03:52.:03:56.

It certainly has. I did get quite a lot of annoyance on the path of the

:03:56.:04:02.

government that Labour had chosen to publish this ridge now. They say

:04:02.:04:06.

it is unfair to the 50,000 people who responded to the consultation,

:04:07.:04:11.

as they say it is a big mistake for Labour to leave it so late.

:04:11.:04:15.

So what difference would actually make?

:04:15.:04:18.

Them or be more uncertainty as a direct result of this. The route

:04:18.:04:22.

has already been looked at and dismissed, hence the reason they

:04:22.:04:26.

publish the other route. Labour had already said that to this proposal

:04:26.:04:30.

does not get the backing of the government, then they will still

:04:30.:04:33.

effectively back the existing proposals, so we could be back to

:04:33.:04:38.

square one within weeks. What will happen next? What about

:04:38.:04:42.

the result of the consultation? The consultation took place earlier

:04:42.:04:46.

in the year. Date -- it is unlikely there will be any further delay in

:04:46.:04:52.

the consultation. The government seems likely to give HS2 the go-

:04:52.:04:55.

ahead, and on the existing route that we have been talking about for

:04:55.:05:00.

many months. It seems that even with these new proposals, it is

:05:00.:05:04.

unlikely we will see that much of a delay or that much of a change with

:05:04.:05:10.

the decision to go ahead with it. Later in tonight's programme,

:05:10.:05:14.

reunited at last, the cat at the heart of the MP love triangle court

:05:14.:05:21.

case is found safe and well. But first, families living in a

:05:21.:05:25.

rural part of South Shropshire are suffering drought as their wells

:05:25.:05:29.

and boreholes run dry. Thousands of homes are not connected to the

:05:29.:05:34.

mains water supply, and rely on nature to provide them with water.

:05:34.:05:38.

But with the country experiencing a very dry year, many are being

:05:38.:05:43.

forced to rely on family and friends for water.

:05:43.:05:46.

David and Coraine Oakley have come a mile and a half to get water. The

:05:46.:05:51.

well that supplies their home near Clunton it dried out 12 months ago

:05:51.:05:54.

-- 12 weeks ago. We have been fetching water from

:05:55.:05:59.

our wonderful friends all over the place. We've been as far as

:05:59.:06:03.

Birmingham. All the way to Birmingham.

:06:03.:06:07.

They are filling up at a tank donated by Severn Trent, which is

:06:07.:06:11.

stationed at a nearby farm which has also run dry. The water supply

:06:11.:06:15.

from his farm normally comes from a spring in those hills. But it is

:06:15.:06:22.

running dry, as they have been out of water here for two weeks.

:06:22.:06:25.

The dry ground beans Falmer Jonathan Griffiths is having to

:06:25.:06:32.

feed his sheep with a winter food. -- the dry ground means.

:06:32.:06:36.

It has never happened, had I have been here all my life. It is a

:06:36.:06:41.

whole new experience. Others are warning this localised

:06:41.:06:45.

to drought could jeopardise next year's harvest.

:06:45.:06:50.

At this time, it should be green it now, and you should be able to see

:06:51.:06:56.

rows of seats coming up. The 10,000 people in Shropshire rely on wells

:06:56.:07:01.

and springs for their water. Legally, it is their responsibility,

:07:01.:07:05.

but talks are under way. This area is under stress for water

:07:06.:07:10.

supply, so as part of the planning and development we are trying to

:07:10.:07:13.

restrict development to areas where there are enough water, and then to

:07:13.:07:18.

work with people to try and recycle things like either winter reservoir

:07:18.:07:22.

as all things like rainwater harvesting to make things like

:07:22.:07:26.

washing and washing-machines work. Meanwhile, everyday life is

:07:26.:07:30.

revolving around water. The you take it for granted that you turn

:07:30.:07:34.

the tap on and water is there, but does not appear to have a shower,

:07:34.:07:38.

not being added to wash cloud that proper wash clothes.

:07:38.:07:44.

Many here are praying for rain. Thousands of jobs in the region

:07:44.:07:48.

will be either created or protected by the government's Regional Growth

:07:48.:07:52.

Fund, according to ministers who have been setting out the plans.

:07:52.:07:57.

The grants totalling 100 billion to pounds have been awarded to 22

:07:57.:08:05.

successful bids. -- �100 million. One of the most important benefit

:08:05.:08:08.

is looking at the automotive sector, as looking where industries want to

:08:08.:08:13.

come back to the West Midlands. We see with Elonex, they wish to bring

:08:13.:08:15.

back some of their development and production back to the West

:08:15.:08:19.

Midlands from China. The a public meeting is being held for those

:08:20.:08:24.

affected by the August riots. The Riots, Communities and Victims

:08:24.:08:28.

Panel it is in Birmingham to find out why the disturbances happened.

:08:28.:08:31.

It is also hoping to find out how to stop them happening again. They

:08:31.:08:36.

want people to share their experiences of the disturbances.

:08:36.:08:40.

Staffordshire Police say they have received new information about

:08:40.:08:43.

alleged corruption in Stoke-on- Trent and are making fresh

:08:43.:08:47.

inquiries. The it follows an investigation three years ago.

:08:47.:08:50.

Detectives say they are reviewing information passed to them in the

:08:50.:08:56.

last few days. This was an inquiry which saw three

:08:56.:09:00.

of Stoke-on-Trent's most prominent public figures arrested. Councillor

:09:00.:09:04.

Roger Ibbs, the city's elected mayor Mark Meredith, and

:09:04.:09:08.

businessman Mo Chaudry were all questions. All denied any

:09:08.:09:12.

wrongdoing, and all were released without charge. Investigations

:09:12.:09:16.

surrounded the proposed closure of this council-run swimming pool. It

:09:16.:09:20.

didn't shut, but there have been renewed questions after the city

:09:20.:09:24.

council issued an apology over the matter to Mr Chowdhury. It has now

:09:24.:09:31.

been revealed that settlement cost taxpayers �44,000 in legal costs.

:09:31.:09:35.

Also, Staffordshire Police said it had received a complaint and are

:09:35.:09:39.

reviewing this information. Of the inquiries have been welcomed by

:09:39.:09:43.

independent councillors. I am pleased that the police are

:09:43.:09:47.

going to do further inquiries into this matter, because it needs to be

:09:47.:09:51.

done. It is the talk of the Potteries.

:09:51.:09:56.

For his part, Mo Chaudry, who owns what a world, says the matter is

:09:56.:10:00.

done and dusted. He says he is happy to reveal all details of his

:10:00.:10:06.

agreement with the council. Liz joins us now from our studio.

:10:06.:10:09.

What has reaction been to from the council?

:10:09.:10:13.

When I spoke to members after them, their reaction was swift and short.

:10:13.:10:18.

They said they had nothing further to add. There has been an attempt

:10:18.:10:22.

to debate this issue, at that happened at the full council

:10:22.:10:25.

meeting earlier this month. A group of opposition councillors got

:10:25.:10:29.

together and put forward a motion because they said they wanted the

:10:29.:10:34.

big players to be made there public. However, that motion was defeated

:10:34.:10:39.

after 31 of Labour's 34 councillors voted against it. Separately, a

:10:39.:10:44.

number of individuals have also organised -- a number of

:10:44.:10:49.

individuals and other organisations have attempted to use the Freedom

:10:49.:10:52.

of Information Act to get information. We have asked for

:10:52.:10:55.

details of meetings, for correspondence and e-mails, in the

:10:55.:10:59.

last few days, the council has refused our request alongside those

:10:59.:11:04.

of other people. In our case, the council gave his legal reason by

:11:04.:11:08.

saying it would be too disruptive to release that information, and it

:11:08.:11:13.

could not be in the public interest. The council said it signed a

:11:14.:11:18.

confidentially --, the entry -- confidentiality clause, and cannot

:11:18.:11:23.

reveal any more. The tell us more about Mo Chaudry's reaction.

:11:23.:11:28.

He has a rather different view. He said he had no objection at all to

:11:28.:11:35.

all the information being revealed. He said he would be happy for the

:11:35.:11:39.

council to reveal everything, and he felt he had been treated badly,

:11:39.:11:43.

he said he felt aggrieved and let down by what had happened and he

:11:43.:11:47.

said that throughout his position has remained unchanged.

:11:47.:11:53.

Thank you very much. A cat belonging to the mistress of

:11:53.:11:55.

the Liberal-Democrat MP John Hemming has turned up, safe and

:11:55.:12:00.

well, more than a year after he was stolen -- she was stolen by his

:12:00.:12:04.

wife. The Christine Hemming was given a suspended jail sentence for

:12:04.:12:13.

stealing Beauty. Beauty is back, much to the delight

:12:13.:12:17.

of Emily Cox, a long-term lover of MP John Hemming. The cat belongs to

:12:18.:12:22.

her six-year-old daughter, and she is really delighted.

:12:22.:12:27.

She just smiled and looked so happy, it was the most amazing thing to

:12:27.:12:31.

see her. She knew she had her cat back.

:12:31.:12:36.

And what a journey she has been on. Starting out in the arms of

:12:36.:12:40.

Christine Hemming, wife of John, as she burgled Miss Cox's house in

:12:40.:12:46.

Birmingham -- house in Moseley. Until last week she was missing,

:12:46.:12:52.

feared probably dead. But after Mrs Hemming appeared in court, Miss Cox

:12:52.:12:55.

appeared on Midlands Today. I think it has been worse for my

:12:55.:13:00.

daughter. That has -- she has lost her cat.

:13:00.:13:04.

That reached the ears of a cat lover.

:13:04.:13:07.

My friend said that this cat has not been seen since November, at

:13:08.:13:15.

that rang a bell. That was when she appeared. I thought I should follow

:13:15.:13:19.

this up. A phone call to the Liberal

:13:19.:13:23.

Democrat support Mr Hemming to her doorstep. It is thought Beauty has

:13:23.:13:27.

had a litter of kittens, but they have yet to be located. The saga of

:13:27.:13:37.
:13:37.:13:41.

the MP, the cat, the wife and the Still to come: brewing up a storm

:13:41.:13:45.

in League Two. We meet the hat- trick hero.

:13:45.:13:51.

And find out why it's scaring yourself silly makes people in the

:13:51.:14:01.
:14:01.:14:09.

That was a bit scary! Every year, 2000 people receive free care from

:14:09.:14:13.

hospices in rugby, Coventry and Warwick. But they rely on donations

:14:13.:14:17.

and the cost for just one nurses �30,000 a year.

:14:17.:14:21.

Today, BBC Coventry and Warwickshire launched an appeal to

:14:21.:14:31.
:14:31.:14:35.

help raise money to pay for more We have joined forces to launch the

:14:35.:14:43.

BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Nurse Appeal. 2000 people every year of

:14:43.:14:46.

cared-for by this Hospice, among from Joyce, who died last year.

:14:47.:14:53.

Suddenly, there was help and it is invaluable help. It is stuff that

:14:53.:14:57.

you don't even think about. When somebody is a very her ill, you

:14:58.:15:02.

need help. �30,000 will fund a hospice nurse who in turn can help

:15:02.:15:04.

43 patients this appeal by BBC Coventry and warwickshire aims to

:15:04.:15:07.

increase the number of nurses working at the three centres so

:15:07.:15:16.

that there is no risk of terminally ill patients being turned away.

:15:16.:15:20.

is a great place for end of life care and we are set up with doctors

:15:20.:15:25.

and nurses to what experienced. To turn someone down the field as

:15:25.:15:28.

devastating because we do not know what alternatives are going on out

:15:28.:15:33.

there. Donations of �7 million a year keep Myton hospice running but

:15:33.:15:37.

it also helps famalies such as Meg who was just ten when her dad died

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:51.

two years ago. Myton has helped her come to terms with his death.

:15:51.:15:56.

makes us all feel better to know that we are there for them. Buying

:15:56.:16:01.

items helps to fund this hospice but with more than 600,000 people

:16:01.:16:04.

in their catchment area, if every single one of those people donated

:16:04.:16:10.

just �1, they say they would be able to help you and Yours, at a

:16:10.:16:20.

time when you need it most. Such a worthwhile cause. And you

:16:20.:16:23.

can find more about the Myton Nurse campaign on BBC Coventry &

:16:23.:16:27.

Warwickshire's website. Dan's here with the sport, and not

:16:27.:16:30.

good news tonight for Birmingham City fans.

:16:30.:16:35.

No but exactly how bad remains unclear. A statement has been

:16:35.:16:38.

released to the Hong Kong Stock exchange today by the club's parent

:16:38.:16:40.

company Birmingham International Holdings. It warns that they expect

:16:40.:16:44.

to record a substantial loss for the year ending June the 30th, due

:16:44.:16:47.

mainly to relegation. They also warn investors to exercise caution

:16:47.:16:51.

when dealing in shares in the company. We also learned today that

:16:51.:16:55.

those end of year figures won't now be published until the end of

:16:55.:17:02.

January. What about the fans? How will it

:17:02.:17:08.

affect them? Of course the big fear for fans is that more players will

:17:08.:17:12.

be sold in January harming what so far has been a promising season.

:17:12.:17:14.

They have done very well in the circumstances but they could lose

:17:14.:17:18.

further players. They must be pretty nervous, the

:17:18.:17:22.

players? Some of them are on Premier League

:17:22.:17:26.

wages so it is not so much the money, but if they can get those

:17:26.:17:27.

players of the wage bill, it would help.

:17:27.:17:34.

That is not going to be easy. They didn't win this weekend. In

:17:34.:17:38.

fact matters on the pitch and we didn't have a single winner above

:17:38.:17:42.

League Two this weekend. That could change tonight though as Stoke City

:17:42.:17:45.

host Newcastle United in the Premier League. Newcastle are

:17:45.:17:48.

unbeaten in all 12 league games this season. But Stoke beat them 4-

:17:48.:17:51.

0 when they last met. And there's full match commentary from the

:17:51.:17:54.

Britannia Stadium on BBC Radio Stoke tonight. Coverage starts at

:17:54.:17:58.

seven. Kick-off is at eight. Billy Kee will celebrate his 21st

:17:58.:18:02.

birthday next month. But he's already got the perfect present.

:18:02.:18:05.

Because Billy went home with the matchball on Saturday night, after

:18:05.:18:08.

scoring his first-ever hatrick for Burton Albion. Ian Winter has been

:18:08.:18:13.

to meet him. It's lasagne for lunch. And the

:18:13.:18:16.

Burton Albion lads are always starving after training. Hungry for

:18:16.:18:19.

carbohydrates and even more hungry to build on their excellent start

:18:19.:18:24.

to the season. Not least, their talented young striker Billy Kee.

:18:24.:18:28.

Outside, Paul Peschisolido believes he's snapped up a bargain. In his

:18:28.:18:31.

heyday, Pesch loved popping in the goals for Birmingham, Stoke and

:18:31.:18:35.

West Bromwich Albion, to name just three of his former clubs. So the

:18:35.:18:37.

Burton Albion boss knows a natural goalscorer when he sees one.

:18:37.:18:40.

Someone like Billy, who scored against Burton for Torquay back in

:18:40.:18:49.

April. That goal convinced him that Billy would be perfect for Burton

:18:49.:18:56.

and four months later, he signed him for the princely sum of �20,000.

:18:56.:19:01.

Is that the best �20,000 you've ever spent? Absolutely. I don't

:19:01.:19:03.

want to get too carried away because he is still young but he

:19:03.:19:09.

has all the qualities of being a good player. Billy jumped at the

:19:09.:19:12.

chance to join Burton, just 30 miles away from his mum's home

:19:12.:19:14.

cooking. Normally, his proud parents go to every game. But they

:19:14.:19:16.

missed his match-winning performance at Barnet on Saturday,

:19:16.:19:20.

so this was their Billy at his very best. Goal number one came after

:19:20.:19:23.

just seven minutes. And Burton were off to a flying start. Goal number

:19:23.:19:27.

two was the best of the bunch and doubled Burton's lead after half an

:19:27.:19:30.

hour. And then goal number three completed Billy's hat-trick in the

:19:30.:19:34.

second half to put Burton back in front at 3-2. And they went onto

:19:34.:19:39.

win 6-3. No wonder all the lads signed the matchball which now

:19:39.:19:47.

lives in Billy's bedroom. It was one of those days, everything I hit

:19:47.:19:51.

went in. Lately, my long-range play has not been the best but on

:19:51.:19:56.

Saturday, everything I hit went in. Best hat-trick I've ever seen.

:19:56.:20:02.

want to play at the highest level I can. Hopefully here, and believing

:20:02.:20:08.

in myself more and a compass on. Now, Pesch is hoping Billy's boots

:20:08.:20:11.

to fifth in League Two. Two of our Elite League speedway

:20:16.:20:19.

teams are under new ownership. The Coventry Bees have been taken over

:20:19.:20:22.

by businessman Mick Horton who used to run a team in Peterborough. And

:20:23.:20:25.

the Birmingham Brummies are now owned by the Black Country Training

:20:25.:20:28.

Group. The Brummies have just finished their first season in the

:20:28.:20:35.

top flight since returning to the sport in 2007.

:20:35.:20:38.

And the deadline's passed to enter the BBC Midlands Sport unsung hero.

:20:38.:20:41.

Many thanks for all your entries. Judging will take place this week.

:20:41.:20:47.

The winner will be announced in early December.

:20:47.:20:57.

I saw a great pile of them today, fantastic! Thank you.

:20:57.:21:00.

If you're a mum or dad or grandparent getting the children

:21:00.:21:03.

ready to go trick and treating, here's a spooky fact for you.

:21:03.:21:05.

Halloween is the biggest money spinner for shops with only

:21:05.:21:08.

Christmas and Easter beating it. 31st October has always been big in

:21:08.:21:11.

America where they spend three times as much on Halloween. Now of

:21:11.:21:13.

course, it's really catching on over here too.

:21:13.:21:16.

Our reporter Ben Sidwell has gone to meet one American who's helping

:21:16.:21:23.

up the scare factor here. Ben, who he is then?

:21:23.:21:28.

Halloween, a time for ghosts and ghouls. He can make quite a lot of

:21:28.:21:32.

money if you are a business. If it is bigger here, it is massive and

:21:32.:21:35.

America at the moment. I'm in Burton-upon-Trent and the reason

:21:35.:21:39.

this is happening is because of one scare expert from America, her why

:21:39.:21:43.

have been spending the day with. I must warn you there are Strode

:21:43.:21:51.

images in this report. How Wayne, a day for trickle Creek

:21:51.:21:57.

is -- a trick or treaters, and for scaring yourself is -- silly. It is

:21:57.:22:03.

also big business. Here, they portend a man with plenty of scary

:22:03.:22:10.

experience to create their following attraction. Jared hails

:22:10.:22:15.

from the home of the Hallowe'en celebration, the USA. You see a

:22:15.:22:19.

group of adults coming through, they are cowering and freaking out.

:22:19.:22:23.

You want to scare them as much as possible, that is the whole point.

:22:23.:22:28.

To those of a more delicate nature, there is always a pumpkin to Carter.

:22:28.:22:34.

Of course, it all costs money. As Hallowe'en become too commercial?

:22:34.:22:37.

We have to dig into our pockets for another reason but I think it is

:22:37.:22:41.

nice to have some fun and let your hair down and have a reason to have

:22:41.:22:45.

a laugh and joke about things. children enjoy it so I don't see

:22:45.:22:49.

why we shouldn't continue to commercialise it in a way that it

:22:49.:22:53.

is at the moment. Jared will not be in Britain tonight, he will be at

:22:53.:22:59.

home with his wife. Have been such a big hello Wheen Farm, their house

:22:59.:23:08.

is hard to miss. -- Halloween. We put a lot of effort into decorating.

:23:08.:23:13.

The we like to put a little something for the neighbourhood

:23:13.:23:23.

kids to come to and everybody knows this. -- knows us. Back in Burton,

:23:23.:23:27.

there are plenty of volunteers looking for a frightened of the

:23:27.:23:30.

growth of hollow ring continues, you can't expect to see plenty more

:23:30.:23:34.

attractions like this popping up in the Midlands over the next few

:23:34.:23:41.

years. Jarrett has appeared in many of the

:23:42.:23:44.

biggest scare attractions in America so he knows what he is

:23:44.:23:49.

doing. One of the men that hired him is the eco owner of this

:23:49.:23:54.

adventure park, that is Ivor Robinson. Hallowe'en for you guys,

:23:54.:23:57.

you've invested a lot of money. That must mean it is big business.

:23:57.:24:02.

Yes, sure. Hallowe'en is a number - - one of a number of seasonal

:24:02.:24:07.

events. We had a successful time with it last year so we thought we

:24:07.:24:10.

would build on it this year. We've made the attraction bigger and

:24:10.:24:14.

better. It provides a good qualities get traction in the

:24:14.:24:20.

Midlands. Why bring Jared in? He is the next bid for America but it is

:24:20.:24:24.

a big thing to do for a place like this. He has the acting techniques

:24:24.:24:28.

that we require and he has passed that on to the actors who can see

:24:28.:24:32.

around me. It really is more than just people jumping out and

:24:32.:24:38.

shouting. We have created towards 30 difference it theatrical scenes

:24:38.:24:44.

that the actors work through during the night. Is this sort of thing...

:24:44.:24:51.

I expecting hundreds tonight? have seen it working in other parts

:24:51.:24:57.

of the country and it is successful. It doesn't seem to be so big in

:24:57.:25:00.

Midlands yet but that is what we are going for. We've had hundreds

:25:00.:25:05.

of people already. We are expecting more tonight. We will build on this

:25:05.:25:09.

success in future years. They are here and 11 o'clock tonight. To be

:25:09.:25:13.

perfectly honest, I have planned so -- spend plenty of time here and

:25:13.:25:23.
:25:23.:25:29.

I'm going to leave as quickly as The weather is a lot scarier.

:25:29.:25:33.

Nothing as scary as the freak snowstorms in the States but having

:25:33.:25:37.

said that, the same area of low pressure will affect us this week.

:25:37.:25:40.

It is crossing the Atlantic and reaching our shores. As it does so,

:25:40.:25:46.

it retains a lot of that intensity. Because we introduce a milder air

:25:46.:25:49.

stream, the effects will be different. We will get wet and

:25:49.:25:53.

windy weather but no star. We have a flavour of that coming along

:25:53.:26:00.

tonight. I would get out on the streets sooner rather than later

:26:00.:26:03.

tonight. For the next couple of hours, we will see this band of

:26:03.:26:09.

rain heading our way. It is heavy rain, we are expecting between 10

:26:10.:26:13.

to 12 mm. It is moving quickly so by the end of the night, it should

:26:13.:26:17.

have cleared western areas but where we retain the the cloud and

:26:17.:26:22.

rain, we will see mild temperatures. Values of 10 or 11 Celsius. It will

:26:22.:26:27.

be gusty as the rain band moves through. By the time you wake up

:26:27.:26:30.

tomorrow morning, the skies should have clear. We are looking up quite

:26:30.:26:35.

a bit of sunshine. Copious amounts of it. That will not lift the

:26:35.:26:39.

temperatures higher than two days temperatures. Eyes of 14 Celsius

:26:39.:26:44.

but academic Ready because in the sunshine it should feel as warm. --

:26:44.:26:50.

eyes. Through tomorrow night, which is dry and quite clear initially,

:26:50.:26:53.

we will see evidence of the next band of rain coming through as the

:26:54.:27:03.
:27:04.:27:07.

cloud thickens up from the West. A look at tonight's main headlines.

:27:07.:27:10.

After days of protests, another high profile resignation at St

:27:10.:27:12.

Paul's Cathedral. And a new route's proposed for the

:27:12.:27:14.

controversial HS2 rail line, affecting a whole new set of

:27:14.:27:17.

residents. Inside Out is on in just over half

:27:17.:27:20.

an hour here on BBC One and this week they meet Coventry's Adrian

:27:21.:27:23.

Mason. He's spent more than 15 years in

:27:23.:27:26.

prison for a catalogue of crimes ranging from theft, to driving

:27:26.:27:29.

offences, and in the worst case, armed robbery. But whilst in jail,
