with Joanne Malin and Nick Owen. The headlines tonight: More money for

:00:05.:00:07.

the region's infrastructure as the Government loosens the purse

:00:07.:00:16.

strings, but business leaders say it's not enough. The government

:00:16.:00:20.

isn't showing power to give commitment to the regions. We'll be

:00:20.:00:23.

asking exactly what today's announcement could mean for the

:00:23.:00:26.

Midlands. Also tonight, Muslim leaders' shock as a mosque is daubed

:00:26.:00:30.

with offensive graffiti. How lemon juice is helping to preserve and

:00:30.:00:37.

restore an historic German bomber. Endangered in the wild, how the

:00:37.:00:40.

birth of this snow leopard cub at Dudley Zoo gives hope the animals

:00:40.:00:46.

may survive. And depending upon which way you look at it, there's

:00:46.:00:50.

some good news and bad news in the forecast over the coming days. Hear

:00:50.:01:00.
:01:00.:01:04.

all about it the later. Good evening. The projected cost of the

:01:04.:01:08.

High Speed Two Rail line through the region shot up by an astonishing �10

:01:08.:01:16.

billion today. The announcement came as the Government set out its

:01:16.:01:19.

Spending Review including news of a �2 billion investment fund that's

:01:19.:01:23.

expected to benefit this region. business leaders in Birmingham today

:01:23.:01:27.

said that fell far short of the �50 billion they'd been hoping for.

:01:27.:01:30.

There are also to be more deep cuts in council spending. Our Political

:01:30.:01:34.

Editor Patrick burns is at the Houses of Parliament now... More

:01:35.:01:38.

pain, which we've come to expect, Patrick, but some gain too today for

:01:38.:01:46.

this region? Little doubt now that our part of the country is in line

:01:46.:01:48.

for a significant chunk of that infrastucture investment the

:01:48.:01:58.
:01:58.:01:59.

Chancellor kept talking about. Don't be surprised if our motorway network

:01:59.:02:03.

is high on the list when the details are mentioned tomorrow. Bob

:02:03.:02:05.

Hockenhull has been assessing reaction to the Chancellor's

:02:05.:02:10.

statement. The Chancellor loosening the purse strings to kick start

:02:10.:02:18.

economic growth. That's at least �10 billion over the next Parliament,

:02:18.:02:20.

that is a sum that local enterprise partnerships can bid for"

:02:20.:02:23.

Aspirations for an infrastructure boost have rarely been higher in the

:02:23.:02:33.
:02:33.:02:34.

heart of England. The West Midlands will want as much of that cash as

:02:34.:02:37.

possible but for some in Birmingham, the amount made available fell way

:02:37.:02:42.

short. We are disappointed because we were expecting a lot more money

:02:42.:02:48.

and we wanted enough more. One major project already underway is New

:02:48.:02:58.
:02:58.:02:58.

Street Station - being rebuilt as part of an �800 million investment.

:02:58.:03:04.

You will see all of the old station structures demolished. A thousand

:03:04.:03:09.

workers, many recruited locally, are involved. It wouldn't be happening

:03:09.:03:12.

without Government cash and it's not just not about improving rail

:03:12.:03:19.

services. This is where they are building the John Lewis complex. It

:03:19.:03:23.

is a construction site now but in 18 months it will be full of shoppers

:03:23.:03:28.

and more importantly, job opportunities. So has the Chancellor

:03:28.:03:30.

done enough to kick-start similar giant projects? The Greater

:03:30.:03:32.

Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership will be

:03:32.:03:41.

responsible for delivering any economic revival. We've been given a

:03:41.:03:46.

reason to believe that we will be invited early in the process. The

:03:46.:03:52.

important thing is it is the beginning of a different process.

:03:52.:03:54.

The budget for one huge infrastructure project for

:03:54.:03:57.

Birmingham - the High Speed Two rail line - shot up today by �10 billion

:03:57.:04:01.

to 42 billion. The Government says it still may not cost that much and

:04:01.:04:03.

opponents are still determined to scupper the whole project. New

:04:03.:04:07.

pictures show what HS2 trains could look like and one of the companies

:04:07.:04:13.

involved believes it's a price worth paying. There are statistics across

:04:13.:04:19.

the world that demonstrates that putting money into infrastructure is

:04:19.:04:28.

more beneficial than making cuts elsewhere and cutting taxes.

:04:28.:04:32.

sentiment that people in the region will hope George Osborne will agree

:04:32.:04:41.

with. Infrastructure projects don't come any bigger than High Speed Two.

:04:42.:04:46.

MPs are preparing to vote in the second reading of the bill. They are

:04:46.:04:53.

still absorbing the news that the cost has shot up to �42 billion. I

:04:53.:04:59.

am joined by two MPs who are strong supporters of high-speed rail.

:04:59.:05:05.

Surely this news is bound to embolden your party colleagues who

:05:05.:05:13.

feel strongly that we should not throw any good money after bad?

:05:13.:05:17.

underlying problem is capacity. There has been a doubling in

:05:17.:05:20.

long-distance rail travel in recent years because of the cost of

:05:20.:05:26.

motoring. The imperative here is one of capacity and although I have

:05:26.:05:31.

reservations about the impact on my constituency, and I am trying to get

:05:31.:05:34.

at the compensation for my constituents, I do think for the

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:47.

West Midlands we need that capacity. Surely the voices will be stronger

:05:47.:05:57.
:05:57.:05:58.

against it? Road capacity between London and Birmingham and the rest

:05:58.:06:02.

of the country will give it the economic growth we need. We need to

:06:02.:06:05.

get the calculations right which is why am worried about the

:06:05.:06:08.

announcement because if we can't get the figures right and do the

:06:08.:06:12.

calculations then those people who don't believe in infrastructure

:06:12.:06:16.

investment will have ammunition. The infrastructure decision itself is

:06:16.:06:20.

right. Moving onto the Spending Review, you are among the

:06:20.:06:26.

signatories of the letter. It is a remarkable display of cross-party

:06:26.:06:29.

unity. 18 MPs wrote to the Chancellor in support of the funding

:06:29.:06:39.

growth. Lord Howe Tyne has said it is more than that. It is 15 billion

:06:39.:06:42.

at the time you bring European monies in the play. It is important

:06:42.:06:46.

that we have written to the Chancellor on a cross-party basis

:06:46.:06:51.

because West Midlands needs to speak with one voice when we compete for

:06:51.:06:58.

the money. One voice is important. The announcement today was 2 billion

:06:58.:07:04.

which is not enough so I hope there will be more money. My thanks to you

:07:04.:07:13.

both. Coming up later in the programme: the challenge for police

:07:13.:07:16.

with more cost-cutting on the way. Could new technology be part of the

:07:16.:07:26.
:07:26.:07:27.

answer to keeping an eye on criminals? Racist graffiti daubed on

:07:27.:07:29.

a Mosque in Worcestershire is being investigated by police. It included

:07:30.:07:32.

swastikas and the initials of the far right English Defence League.

:07:32.:07:35.

Officials at the Mosque say relations between Muslims and other

:07:35.:07:40.

communities are good. Tonight the EDL said they had nothing to do with

:07:41.:07:47.

the incident. Giles Latcham reports. At Redditch, on a mosque still under

:07:47.:07:50.

construction, the Nazi swastika, the initials of the Ku Klux Klan and the

:07:50.:07:57.

far right English Defence League and National Front. Their place of

:07:57.:07:59.

worship defaced, Mosque officials were shocked and saddened - but

:07:59.:08:07.

believe it was an act influenced by events elsewhere. My first reaction

:08:08.:08:13.

is sadness but as you can see, up and down the country, after the

:08:13.:08:19.

incident in Woolwich, there have been incidents highlighted in the

:08:19.:08:25.

press. Council staff were soon on site to help with the clean up.

:08:25.:08:27.

Police believe it began as a break-in by burglars targeting

:08:27.:08:33.

builder's equipment - but turned into a hate crime. I think all of us

:08:33.:08:37.

are really shocked by this activity and we are keen to see the offenders

:08:37.:08:46.

brought to justice and provides support to our residents. Two men

:08:46.:08:49.

have been charged following an alleged arson attack on a mosque in

:08:49.:08:52.

Gloucester last week. A mosque in Walsall was sealed off at the

:08:52.:08:55.

weekend when a device left outside partially exploded. In Redditch,

:08:55.:09:01.

both police and the Mosque committee say community relations are good.

:09:01.:09:04.

But last summer about 100 EDL supporters marched through the town

:09:04.:09:14.
:09:14.:09:15.

and some younger Muslims believe there are tensions. Especially with

:09:15.:09:21.

these younger lots as well, they are making it into more of a racist

:09:21.:09:28.

motivation. Before, it was not like this. It has gone pear shaped.

:09:28.:09:31.

spokesman for the EDL denies they're stirring hatred or that their

:09:31.:09:37.

supporters were involved last night. I do not accept or believe that this

:09:37.:09:42.

was anyone from the English Defence League. We banned the swastika. All

:09:42.:09:49.

you have to do is go on our website. We are proud supporters of Israel.

:09:49.:09:52.

Whoever did though has caused upset and worry. The police's message is

:09:52.:09:59.

one of reassurance, the accent is on harmony. The father of a

:09:59.:10:02.

four-year-old boy alleged to have been starved and murdered by his

:10:02.:10:05.

mother and stepfather has told a court his son was a "normal and

:10:05.:10:08.

healthy" child. Erik Pelka who'd travelled from Poland to give

:10:08.:10:12.

evidence said Daniel Pelka, who died from a head injury at his home in

:10:12.:10:14.

Coventry in March last year, had eaten his food without difficulty

:10:14.:10:19.

during the first year of his life. The senior investigating officer

:10:19.:10:22.

Detective Inspector Chris Hanson said he was shocked at the severity

:10:22.:10:29.

of the boy's emaciation. One of six men on trial for causing explosions

:10:30.:10:33.

in North Staffordshire last year has died. Edvinas Sermuksnis from

:10:33.:10:35.

Belfast was charged with conspiracy to cause explosions last August and

:10:35.:10:44.

making threats to kill. The court heard there were no suspicious

:10:44.:10:48.

circumstances around his death. trust that runs Walsall Manor

:10:48.:10:51.

Hospital has put in a bid to take over the running of Cannock

:10:51.:10:55.

Hospital. It's the latest twist in the health care scandal in

:10:55.:10:58.

Mid-Staffordshire - as Cannock's part of the same trust which runs

:10:58.:11:02.

Stafford Hospital and is now in administration. But, in the new

:11:02.:11:05.

world of NHS competition, Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals are also

:11:05.:11:11.

understood to be keen on on staking a claim to Cannock. To explain all -

:11:11.:11:17.

here's our health correspondent, Michele Paduano. This ward is one of

:11:17.:11:20.

two opened in Walsall to absorb extra patients coming in from

:11:20.:11:26.

Staffordshire. Lisa Ayre has a pulmonary embolism. She lives a mile

:11:26.:11:33.

from Cannock and convalescing nearer home would be an advantage. Panic

:11:33.:11:37.

would be ideal for myself and for my family and friends to come and visit

:11:37.:11:41.

me. Walsall hospital believes that it can provide a range of scanning

:11:41.:11:45.

and diagnostic treatment in Cannock. It says a multi million pound

:11:45.:11:50.

development has been costed and is viable. Our main focus is to use

:11:50.:11:56.

Cannock Chase Hospital as a base for people to get a really good local

:11:56.:12:00.

server so they do not have to travel further afield. Royal Wolverhampton

:12:00.:12:04.

Hospitals is also interested but has not officially made its bid known It

:12:04.:12:06.

plans two new operating theatres and a free bus service from

:12:06.:12:10.

Wolverhampton to Cannock, but would need a �30 million investment.

:12:10.:12:19.

Cannock Hospital is underused and was threatened with closure. With

:12:19.:12:23.

two suitors fighting over it, Cannock's future here looks

:12:23.:12:27.

brighter. I understand that both hospitals were going to do a joint

:12:27.:12:31.

bid, and this shows a new NHS where hospitals are competing against each

:12:32.:12:39.

other. So what do the people of Cannock think? It is easier to

:12:39.:12:43.

commute to Walsall than Wolverhampton. I have no preference.

:12:43.:12:49.

I think, Wolverhampton. They said they would put buses on between the

:12:49.:12:59.
:12:59.:13:00.

two. The Trust special administrator will utimately decide its future.

:13:00.:13:03.

There could be private sector bid as well. Michele Paduano, BBC Midlands

:13:03.:13:09.

Today. This is our top story tonight: Hopes that the region will

:13:09.:13:11.

receive a hefty share of the Chancellor's �2 billion pledge to

:13:11.:13:15.

help businesses, but disappointment it wasn't more. Shefali will have

:13:15.:13:20.

the weather shortly. Also, in tonight's programme: As England take

:13:20.:13:22.

on the world champions in Staffordshire, is women's football

:13:22.:13:29.

breaking through into the big time? And one of the world's rarest and

:13:29.:13:32.

most beautiful creatures, we're live with Dudley Zoo's new snow leopard

:13:32.:13:42.
:13:42.:13:42.

cub. Back to the Chancellor's spending plans now - one man with a

:13:42.:13:45.

keen eye on his finances is Staffordshire's Police and Crime

:13:45.:13:49.

Commissioner. Matthew Ellis is expecting to oversee savings of

:13:49.:13:55.

seven million pounds for each of the next two years. Our Staffordshire

:13:55.:13:58.

reporter Liz Copper followed him throughout a typical day to find out

:13:58.:14:01.

about the difficulties of cutting budgets at the same time as cutting

:14:01.:14:07.

crime. The day begins with an eight o'clock management briefing with an

:14:07.:14:10.

agenda reflecting the impact of government decisions on police

:14:10.:14:20.
:14:20.:14:22.

funding. There are some real chances of making savings on front-line

:14:22.:14:27.

policing. We are working closer together. Next a meeting in Codsall

:14:27.:14:35.

focusing on mental health issues. you could change one thing, what

:14:35.:14:45.
:14:45.:14:45.

would it be? This meeting's followed by a surgery. Parish councillors are

:14:45.:14:49.

here to discuss specific policing problems. It comes amid reports the

:14:49.:14:57.

Police and Crime Commissioner's role could be widened. There is talk of

:14:57.:15:02.

expanding the role to encompass all emergency services. That seems like

:15:02.:15:09.

a unrealistic expectation. The Fire Service is a good candidate, I

:15:09.:15:19.
:15:19.:15:21.

think. I talked to the Prime Minister about it. Inspite of those

:15:21.:15:24.

high level talks, the Fire Brigades Union's attacked those plans, saying

:15:24.:15:27.

"it's not suitable for PCCs' roles to be extended". And not everyone at

:15:27.:15:32.

the surgery's a political ally either. I am sceptical about the

:15:32.:15:38.

Police Commissioner's role and the way they were elected, and the

:15:38.:15:43.

principle of it as well. I think we need to give him time. After the

:15:43.:15:49.

surgery, there is another meeting. Then a chance to speak to officers

:15:49.:15:53.

on the front line. Next the PCC's in Penkridge, hearing from those who've

:15:53.:16:03.
:16:03.:16:05.

been helped by Victim Support. Cost-cutting in the criminal justice

:16:05.:16:09.

system happens in the wrong place. Staffordshire's the only force in

:16:09.:16:13.

the country to use this drone - much cheaper than a force helicopter -

:16:13.:16:16.

and it can beam back pictures to help officers. The PCC wants to

:16:16.:16:22.

invest more in technology to improve services. There are those who would

:16:22.:16:25.

say it is unrealistic to expect improvements in services without

:16:25.:16:32.

more money. It is not easy but I think the sense is that we have

:16:32.:16:37.

sufficiently high ambitions that we have to buy into. This will give us

:16:37.:16:41.

a better chance at succeeding over the years. The day ends with a

:16:42.:16:45.

public meeting ahead of the launch of a four year vision for policing

:16:45.:16:48.

in Staffordshire. Of course, ultimately, it'll be voters who

:16:48.:16:52.

decide just how successful all our PCCs have been. Liz Copper, BBC

:16:52.:16:58.

Midlands Today, Staffordshire. German bomber lifted from the

:16:59.:17:01.

English Channel is now being drenched again inside a hangar in

:17:01.:17:03.

Shropshire. The process should stop the unique aircraft deteriorating

:17:04.:17:07.

further. Only when that's done can restoration of the World War Two

:17:07.:17:12.

Dornier begin. Our reporter Joanne Writtle had exclusive access to the

:17:12.:17:22.
:17:22.:17:26.

delicate operation. In a sorry state and being restored in two greenhouse

:17:26.:17:28.

tunnels in Shropshire, a Dornier 17, the world's only surviving German

:17:28.:17:32.

World War II bomber of its kind. Pictures of it being lifted from the

:17:32.:17:35.

seabed in Kent were beamed around the world earlier this month.

:17:35.:17:39.

Rescued from its watery grave after being shot down in 1940.

:17:39.:17:42.

Conservations teams at RAF Museum Cosford are now revelling in

:17:42.:17:51.

restoring it. There are bits that are amazing. There is painted

:17:51.:17:56.

equipment and I have a piece here which came out of the wreckage. You

:17:56.:18:02.

can still see part of the number and identification mark painted on it.

:18:02.:18:06.

But mostly it's a mass of barnacles. Being drenched in ten minutes bursts

:18:06.:18:14.

with water and citric acid - similar to lemon juice basically.

:18:14.:18:19.

irrigation scheme is on a cycle. We sprayed and keep it wet. We cleaned

:18:19.:18:23.

that off and start off with soft brushes. Hopefully, that will

:18:23.:18:32.

preserve anything that is underneath like the original paint schemes.

:18:32.:18:34.

Dornier gained the nickname "the flying pencil" because of it's

:18:34.:18:39.

narrow fusilage. This Dornier's pencil like fusilage was separated

:18:39.:18:46.

from the wings for its journey to Shropshire from Kent. The RAF Museum

:18:46.:18:49.

conservation team is based here at cost for it. To illustrate how it

:18:49.:18:55.

will be peace to gather in a couple of years' time, look no further than

:18:55.:19:00.

this German fighter plane here. Engineers painstakingly married the

:19:00.:19:03.

fusilage back to the wings on this Fockewulf fighter craft. Such work

:19:03.:19:06.

is a long way off for the Dornier. Visitors meanwhile have had glimpses

:19:06.:19:13.

through windows. A lot better than what I was expecting. I thought it

:19:13.:19:21.

was going to be falling to pieces. Eventually the plane will go to RAF

:19:21.:19:24.

Museum Hendon in London to be displayed, that's if it's not too

:19:24.:19:32.

fragile to move again. Isn't that fascinating? All of those barnacles!

:19:32.:19:34.

Five thousand young football supporters turned out in

:19:34.:19:37.

Staffordshire this afternoon to cheer England's women off to the

:19:37.:19:42.

European Championships in Sweden. They drew 1-1 with the world

:19:43.:19:45.

champions Japan at Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium. And it's the

:19:45.:19:47.

Japanese example the Football Association want to follow to grow

:19:48.:19:56.

the women's game in England. Nick Clitheroe reports. This was more

:19:56.:20:00.

than just another step on the road to the Euros. This was a chance to

:20:00.:20:02.

inspire the next generation. Women's football is already the fastest

:20:02.:20:05.

growing sport in the country but they're not stopping there. Four and

:20:05.:20:08.

a half thousand tickets were given away to schools and colleges to

:20:08.:20:14.

ensure the crowd was young and enthusiastic. I haven't seen England

:20:14.:20:22.

play. I am going to Sweden as well so I am looking forward to it. I

:20:22.:20:27.

have not seen ladies play before. The FA would like to make women's

:20:27.:20:31.

football here as popular as it is in Japan. The match kicked off at

:20:31.:20:36.

lunchtime so it could be shown live to millions back home. It is a good

:20:36.:20:46.
:20:46.:20:46.

chance to play against England, they are very good. 3-1 to Japan!It is a

:20:46.:20:51.

big day for Japan. They will head off to Sweden and go one better than

:20:51.:20:58.

losing the final four years ago. England wanted this game to give

:20:58.:21:00.

them the toughest possible preparation for the Euros but for

:21:00.:21:03.

much of the game it looked as if former Birmingham City striker Eni

:21:03.:21:06.

Aluko's goal would give them a morale boosting win. Japan equalised

:21:06.:21:10.

nine minutes from the end but it looked as if England had won the

:21:10.:21:13.

game in the final minute until an offside flag cut short their

:21:13.:21:16.

celebrations. We have a really tough group. We are taking each game as it

:21:16.:21:21.

comes. I know that is a cliche but they have named it the group of

:21:21.:21:27.

death. We will see. We have some tough games coming up. England play

:21:27.:21:30.

Spain in their first group game on the 12th of July and after today

:21:30.:21:33.

they'll have plenty of new young fans to cheer them on. Nick

Clitheroe, BBC Midlands Today, Burton upon Trent. Despite the

:21:39.:21:42.

rather clinical name, Cub X, is without doubt the cutest attraction

:21:42.:21:45.

at Dudley Zoo in decades. That's because Cub X is a rare snow

:21:45.:21:53.

leopard. Staff still don't know its sex because the cub's had no human

contact to guard against any chance of infection. Sarah Falkland is at

:21:56.:21:59.

the big cat enclosure now. Snow Leopards are very rare these days,

:21:59.:22:08.

aren't they? Estimates are that there are only around 4000 snow

:22:08.:22:17.

leopard left in round the world. He is a handsome man, isn't he? He is

:22:17.:22:24.

the father of the cup. If you think he is handsome, you have not seen

:22:24.:22:32.

his offspring. He is adorable. A tiny big cat. Curious and

:22:33.:22:38.

captivating. He is very confident for an eight-week-old cup. The dad

:22:38.:22:44.

is placid and the mum is feisty so it will be interesting to see which

:22:44.:22:51.

character he takes on. She is still giving milk to her cub but already

:22:51.:23:00.

the little one it is developing a taste. Horse meat, occasionally. It

:23:00.:23:05.

depends what we get. Not easy grabbing lunch when your claws are

:23:06.:23:13.

so small. We put the meat pies so we encourage him to climb up and

:23:13.:23:23.
:23:23.:23:26.

around. The cub is destined to a life in captivity. They are an

:23:26.:23:30.

endangered species under all kinds of threats. Their bones are used in

:23:30.:23:36.

Oriental medicine. As if being squeezed out of their habitat is not

:23:36.:23:40.

enough, some have been blown up by landmines. Even when it is fully

:23:41.:23:50.
:23:51.:23:51.

grown, the cub will never roar. Snow leopards hiss and growl instead. We

:23:51.:23:57.

will find out if the cub is male or female in a few weeks when it is

:23:57.:24:01.

handled for its vaccinations. The consensus is that it is a female

:24:01.:24:09.

because she is so pretty. I think it is cute. I would like to cuddle it.

:24:09.:24:19.
:24:19.:24:21.

It is very pretty. Nice to see him. She is lovely, yes. Well, the cub is

:24:21.:24:29.

part of an international breeding programme. What does that mean? It

:24:29.:24:37.

means that this is part of an international programme and the cub

:24:37.:24:44.

will go to Europe to join another male or female to continue the

:24:44.:24:51.

breeding programme. How long will you keep the cub? Up to about 18

:24:52.:25:00.

months. We are being carefully watched by the father here. A proud

:25:00.:25:06.

daddy. They had a bit of a fight earlier. Ie keeping them segregated?

:25:06.:25:14.

Some of them are segregated. The mum will look after the baby and the

:25:14.:25:18.

baby will make its own way so it is very similar to what we do here. We

:25:18.:25:25.

are being cautious. They can get protective, especially newborn,

:25:25.:25:34.

first-time mothers. Is it a boy or girl? Properly a girl.We will bring

:25:34.:25:44.
:25:44.:25:48.

you the news first. I think it is a boy! Temperatures would seem to

:25:48.:25:55.

suggest things are improving. Beautiful day today. We basically

got a watered down version of what was going on across the Iberian

:25:59.:26:02.

Peninsula and beyond with the air originating from the Azores. Our top

:26:02.:26:03.

temperatures almost matched Gibralter's and Barcelona's.They got

:26:03.:26:06.

twenty two We got just over twenty celsius at both Hereford and

:26:06.:26:14.

Pershore. The North of the region didn't fare as well with Keele

:26:14.:26:18.

reaching only 16 but as you can see from that table, a lot of places

:26:18.:26:22.

were into the high teens but it's likely to get even warmer than that

:26:22.:26:25.

later this week. We have a series of warm sectors to come through. The

:26:25.:26:30.

first tomorrow. The second on Friday and the third on Sunday but while

:26:30.:26:33.

we're at the centre of these, not only will temperatures rise but so

:26:33.:26:43.
:26:43.:26:44.

will the humidity. However, there will be some rain to come from them.

:26:44.:26:47.

It's reasonably clear across us right now though there is this bank

:26:47.:26:50.

of cloud sitting out to the East which is just squeezing out the odd

:26:50.:26:56.

light shower. But they'll die out and the night's looking dry and some

:26:56.:27:06.
:27:06.:27:07.

some clear spells - some isolated mist patches and lows of 11 celsius.

:27:07.:27:11.

So it'll be dry with a bit of sunshine tomorrow morning but, after

:27:11.:27:13.

that, as the first warm sector pushes through, and it's coming

:27:13.:27:16.

through quicker now, we'll see it turning cloudier and wetter through

:27:16.:27:20.

the afternoon with a top temperature of 17 celsius. Let's recap tonight

top stories. George Osborne has announced �11.5 billion worth of
