Whack to Midlands Today today. Are medical wards for the fit the answer

:00:12.:00:24.

to bed—blocking? We are better prepared than last winter. The

:00:24.:00:31.

leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage is accused of croneyism. Unfortunately,

:00:31.:00:35.

Nigel is picking people who don't argue with him or even sharpen him

:00:35.:00:40.

up. He's just wanting people to agree with him. Graduation success

:00:40.:00:43.

for the woman who had to teach herself to walk and write again

:00:43.:00:49.

after an horrific riding accident. Moorcroft Pottery celebrates 100

:00:49.:00:53.

years of bright and beautiful. But the same can't be said for the

:00:53.:00:58.

weather. The first storms of autumn are on the way. Will the weekend be

:00:58.:01:02.

a total wash out? I'll tell you later. The hospital wards for the

:01:02.:01:19.

medically fit. There are no doctors and all patients are well enough to

:01:19.:01:22.

be discharged. It might sound like a contradiction,

:01:22.:01:28.

but it's the latest idea from a health trust hoping to avoid bed

:01:28.:01:33.

blocking. It's investing £2 million for patients who could go home, but

:01:33.:01:36.

the help they need to look after themselves isn't available. The idea

:01:36.:01:39.

is that beds in specialist wards are then freed up for patients who

:01:39.:01:45.

really need them. Patients being patient. Meet the

:01:45.:01:51.

walking well, all fit for discharge. 89—year—old May Skidmore is healthy

:01:51.:01:55.

but can't go back to her own house. I was took ill. That's why I was

:01:55.:02:05.

brought in here. It's nice because you have company here. There are ten

:02:06.:02:12.

beds here at Rowley serving Sandwell. It could increase to 50.

:02:12.:02:16.

Michael had breathing problems and was homeless. Social services are

:02:16.:02:19.

trying to find him somewhere to live.

:02:19.:02:22.

I've no fixed abode. They are trying to sort me out a place to live. They

:02:22.:02:27.

have helped me a lot. Last onetering they were so busy, there were two

:02:27.:02:32.

days when there wasn't a single bed left across the entire trust. ——

:02:32.:02:39.

last year they were so busy. The wards are managed by a full team

:02:39.:02:44.

of nurses but there aren't any hospital doctors. In an ideal world,

:02:44.:02:48.

this will prevent people from blocking the queue to the hospital

:02:48.:02:51.

bed and it's a better environment for somebody that's medically fit

:02:51.:02:54.

for discharge. Instead of blocking beds on specialist wards, local GPs

:02:54.:02:59.

visit to keep an eye on them. As the GPs, we are coming in throughout the

:02:59.:03:03.

week to make sure they are healthy and ready to go home and deal with

:03:03.:03:06.

any issues that crop up prior to that. Not all bed blockers are

:03:06.:03:12.

waiting for social services' help. No—one from Sandwell or Birmingham

:03:12.:03:15.

was able to talk to us today. The council today said in a statement:

:03:15.:03:32.

The hospital's Chief Executive says everyone must work smarter. We need

:03:32.:03:38.

to make sure that our district nurses and therapists, local GP

:03:38.:03:42.

colleagues and social care colleagues work more closely

:03:42.:03:45.

together to make sure that patients move through the system. Hospitals

:03:45.:03:49.

looking after healthy people may seem strange, but these wards should

:03:49.:03:54.

save money. Our Health Correspondent joins us

:03:54.:03:57.

now. Some people will be thinking, gosh, £2 million, how can the

:03:57.:04:01.

Hospital Trust afford this? Well, they can't really because they are

:04:01.:04:06.

having to make 4% year on year savings themselves but they don't

:04:06.:04:08.

have any choice. If they don't get the patients out of the beds, they

:04:08.:04:12.

can't get people in to have operations done so don't get paid so

:04:12.:04:15.

hospitals are doing all sorts of things. University Hospital

:04:15.:04:20.

Birmingham is opening extra wards, another hospital is buying beds in

:04:20.:04:23.

care homes and putting patients in them temporarily. How bad is the bed

:04:23.:04:28.

shortage? The crisis is severe. Last year, the accident and emergency

:04:28.:04:31.

consultant said the system was at breaking point and it could fall

:04:31.:04:37.

apart. The Government's put in £250 million to the system to try to do

:04:37.:04:40.

something about it, but everyone's keeping fingers crossed that

:04:40.:04:45.

onetering will be mild and they won't have too much flu or

:04:45.:04:49.

norovirus. Coming up in the programme: Back to

:04:49.:04:53.

see Syd Smails, no longer unsung, but very much a hero to his team.

:04:53.:05:00.

A West Midlands Euro MP has resigned from the UK independent party amid a

:05:00.:05:07.

scathing attack on the party leader, Nigel Farage. He quit UKIP last

:05:07.:05:14.

night, accusing Mr Farage of being totalitarian and comparing him to

:05:14.:05:17.

the Zimbabwe President, Robert Mugabe. Here is our political

:05:17.:05:23.

reporter. The party leader versus the old guard. UKIP's men for the

:05:23.:05:27.

West Midlands didn't take kindly to being deselected as a candidate. Now

:05:27.:05:32.

he's jumping ship with some harsh words for his former boss, Nigel

:05:32.:05:35.

Farage. In my view, he isn't a good leader.

:05:35.:05:41.

This is a problem he has with wanting to control every aspect of

:05:41.:05:46.

the party. I would point to that and say he is in fact totalitarian and

:05:46.:05:51.

he's going to such an extreme now that the process by which mens are

:05:51.:05:56.

recruited into the different lists in the different regions is being

:05:56.:06:03.

gerrymandered, in other words fixed. UKIP says its new selection process

:06:03.:06:08.

is fair, but it's no secret that Nige Elle Farage wants to attract a

:06:08.:06:13.

broad range of candidates. He's been accused by the Prime Minister of

:06:13.:06:16.

leading a Prime Minister of fruit cakes and nutters. They are far from

:06:16.:06:21.

totalitarians. In fact, we are the opposite in every respect. Mike's

:06:21.:06:24.

been a member of UKIP for some time, he's worked hard for the party and

:06:24.:06:32.

we wish him well. These The former party chairman isn't the first UKIP

men to leave. Nicky Sinclair was expelled a year after winning

:06:39.:06:43.

historic I have triwhen UKIP came in second place in 2009. UKIP surpassed

:06:43.:06:47.

expect aces last time around. The two seats they won in the West

:06:47.:06:50.

Midlands may now be held by independents but I'm told they fully

:06:51.:06:55.

expect to win them back and more at the European elections next year.

:06:55.:07:01.

That won't stop Mr Nattrass from trying his luck and he intends to

:07:01.:07:10.

stand against UKIP in May. Our Political Editor is with us now.

:07:10.:07:14.

Where does this leave UKIP and the midland? Whenever political parties

:07:14.:07:18.

parade their divisions in public, they suffer a penalty for that.

:07:18.:07:22.

These are particularly scathing comments which reinforce perceptions

:07:22.:07:26.

that UKIP are a bit of a one—man band. But, so far as the effects of

:07:26.:07:30.

personality politics are concerned, remember there's a big difference

:07:30.:07:33.

between European and British domestic elections. In a British

:07:33.:07:37.

election, people vote for individual, personal candidates

:07:37.:07:40.

representing the parties. In Europe, they vote for closed lists of lots

:07:40.:07:46.

of candidates to represent one giant pan regional constituency across the

:07:46.:07:49.

region. The first of the Party Conferences

:07:49.:07:52.

is getting under way. You will be interviewing all three party leaders

:07:52.:07:56.

in the next few weeks on the Sunday Politics, won't you? Is this the

:07:56.:08:00.

beginning of the run—up to the general election? Definitely the

:08:00.:08:04.

quickening of the pace is quite clear and I challenged him about

:08:04.:08:07.

this week's unemployment figures which continue to show our region

:08:08.:08:11.

well above the national average and he said it's all the more reason why

:08:11.:08:15.

the Government must press on with policies to bear down on that,

:08:15.:08:19.

including significantly, his own personal very direct support for

:08:19.:08:24.

high speed rail, Nick Clegg. As that gets going, we'll be creating 50,000

:08:24.:08:29.

jobs just on the HSII project alone in the West Midlands. Those are

:08:29.:08:35.

always wanting to be pressed ahead with, encouraging investment and

:08:35.:08:39.

working hard through apprenticeships and through particularly the network

:08:39.:08:41.

of excellent colleges in the West Midlands to provide the skills to

:08:42.:08:45.

youngsters so that when the jobs become available, it's local

:08:45.:08:48.

youngsters who have a real fair crack of the whip.

:08:48.:08:52.

Going back to the general election, the Liberal Democrats did dreadfully

:08:52.:08:56.

in the local elections, wiped out in Staffordshire. Did Nick Clegg seem

:08:56.:09:01.

concerned? I reminded him about Staffordshire, but he feels very

:09:01.:09:05.

bullish that when the election comes he can present the case that his

:09:05.:09:09.

party, yes he knew they were going to take a hit for what they've had

:09:09.:09:12.

to do politically, but it was the right thing for the country. That's

:09:13.:09:16.

the message eel present. You can see that interview with Nick

:09:16.:09:21.

Clegg on the Sunday Politics starting at 1. 30 on BBC One.

:09:21.:09:26.

A college that had banned students colouring their faces said it

:09:26.:09:34.

provided female security guards to provide checks. The college changed

:09:34.:09:44.

its policy on Vales. —— veils. The college says it needs to be able to

:09:44.:09:50.

identify individuals because of security. You will Muller Wiseman

:09:50.:09:55.

are threatening le ak action against protestors after a blockade last

:09:55.:10:00.

night. Dozens of farmers stage add protest over the praise of milk.

:10:00.:10:04.

Although farmers receive more money for milk now than this time last

:10:04.:10:08.

year, they say high production costs means they are still making a loss.

:10:08.:10:14.

In 1999, Sarah Kemp had a serious horse riding accident which nearly

:10:14.:10:17.

killed her. She was in a coma for two months. She had to learn to eat,

:10:17.:10:23.

walk and write again. She never gave up and today, she graduated from

:10:23.:10:26.

college 14 years on from when she was originally supposed to start

:10:26.:10:28.

studying. We have been to meet her.

:10:28.:10:37.

Against staggering odds, Sarah Kemp graduates in chemistry and applied

:10:37.:10:41.

sciences at Worcester Cathedral. 14 years ago, she nearly died in a

:10:41.:10:46.

horse riding accident. It's all your hard work. You did

:10:46.:10:52.

this. You put me back together. There to watch the nurse who cared

:10:52.:10:56.

for her as she lay in a coma at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

:10:56.:11:01.

For me personally and with all the hard work, it's just amazing. I feel

:11:01.:11:07.

honoured to come and see how well she's done.

:11:07.:11:11.

In 2002, Sarah appeared on Midlandsed Today three years after

:11:11.:11:17.

her fall on Kinver Edge. Injuries included a blood clot on her brain,

:11:17.:11:23.

X—rays show some of the 18 screws and four metal plates which hold her

:11:23.:11:28.

face together. She was bleeding from the eyes,

:11:28.:11:34.

nose, mouth, ears and she was just, it was obviously... Roan dues

:11:34.:11:39.

really. At home in Kidderminster, memories of Sarah learning to

:11:39.:11:45.

swallow and talk again are etched on her father's mind. His helped her

:11:46.:11:50.

write again and kept the child—like scribbles of a then 21—year—old

:11:50.:11:56.

woman. It was dreadful to watch because we were getting where she

:11:56.:11:59.

could hardly touch the paper. I had to teach her how to walk properly

:12:00.:12:10.

because she had this terrible gait. It was really hard just to

:12:10.:12:16.

understand what I was reading on the computer on the research and the

:12:16.:12:19.

books and actually converting that to my English to write down. It was

:12:19.:12:27.

hard. What kept you going?I'm stubborn. Back to the cathedral then

:12:27.:12:33.

and celebrations. We never thought we'd make it here. This is just

:12:33.:12:38.

beyond belief really. She's proved she can do it. That was the whole

:12:38.:12:41.

point, to prove that she could do it. Until you stop and think about

:12:41.:12:46.

it, you suddenly realise, blimey, that was actually quite hard to get

:12:46.:12:51.

here, but I did it. 14 years ago, Sarah had been about

:12:51.:12:55.

to start a nursing degree. She now works in a shop which she combined

:12:55.:12:59.

with studies at Worcester College of technology. As for what's next, she

:12:59.:13:05.

hasn't decided. Inspiring stuff.

:13:05.:13:10.

Now, a report by the Health Ombudsman's criticised the number of

:13:10.:13:13.

people dying from an infection that can be spot and cured. Sepsis, or

:13:13.:13:18.

September seem that, killed 37,000 people in Britain last year, more

:13:18.:13:25.

than breast cancer, bowel cancer and HIV combined —— septicaemia.

:13:25.:13:29.

Specialist nurses have been working for a decade trying to spot signs of

:13:29.:13:34.

it before it's too late. It's estimated they've saved 1,000 lives

:13:34.:13:38.

already. Joining us now is the man behind that wise decision,

:13:38.:13:43.

consultant Ron Daniels from GoodHope Hospital in Birmingham. You started

:13:43.:13:46.

on the mission after an apparently healthy 37—year—old man died from

:13:46.:13:51.

sepsis. Explain the circumstances? This was Joe, he was 37, I was a

:13:51.:13:58.

newly appointed consultant, came on duly and found him literally falling

:13:58.:14:02.

apart in front of our eyes, there was nothing to do to save him and

:14:02.:14:07.

there had been gaps in his care in the preceding hours. I resolved to

:14:07.:14:11.

do this enwith I followed his wife down the hospital corridor and took

:14:11.:14:16.

her into a room to tell her that her strong man wasn't coming home and

:14:16.:14:20.

she was going to have to go home and tell their two young children that

:14:20.:14:23.

daddy wasn't coming home from a condition they'd never heard of. And

:14:23.:14:29.

he'd come in for something routine? Following a vasectomy, he returned

:14:29.:14:34.

to work and developed flu—like symptoms and then characteristic

:14:34.:14:40.

symptoms of sepsis. There have been a staggering number of high profile

:14:40.:14:47.

cases, Pope John Paul II and Christopher Reeve? And Socrates,

:14:47.:14:53.

Johnny Depp's daughter survived it thankfully here in the UK. There are

:14:53.:14:56.

many, many cases of this condition, obviously some of those will be high

:14:56.:15:01.

profile, but we are talking 100,000 a year affected by it. What are the

:15:01.:15:05.

signs? Presumably it's difficult to spot? It is and it's a challenging

:15:05.:15:10.

condition. In the early stages, it can look like flu but there are

:15:10.:15:13.

specific features people might want to look out for. The ombudsman

:15:13.:15:17.

report highlighted these in the early presentations of patients.

:15:17.:15:22.

Severe breathlessness, rapid shallow breathing is one. Patients often

:15:22.:15:28.

become confuse and delirious and slurred speech, some relatives

:15:28.:15:32.

describing a loved one acting drunk even though they had not touched

:15:32.:15:35.

alcohol. A third sign that people can look out for is changing in the

:15:35.:15:42.

skin colour where the skin might become pail, notled. —— notled. You

:15:42.:15:49.

have spread the word across other hospital Trusts now —— mottled. Yes,

:15:49.:15:57.

word has spread across the UK, it's now standard in Scotland and Wales

:15:57.:16:04.

and the ombudsman's highlighted that that should be an important factor

:16:04.:16:07.

in care in a report today. Thank you for coming in.

:16:07.:16:12.

This is our top story: New wards for the medically fit — is

:16:13.:16:20.

this the solution to hospital bed blocking this winter?

:16:20.:16:24.

Your detailed weather forecast shortly from Rebecca and also,

:16:24.:16:29.

written a book, need a publisher? Why you should make abiline for

:16:29.:16:35.

Birmingham this weekend. —— a beeline for Birmingham this weekend.

:16:35.:16:43.

And bee hives discovered in Sutton Park.

:16:43.:16:47.

Syd Smails — the Black Country netball coach, last year won the

:16:47.:16:51.

title of Midlands Unsung Sporting Hero. He said his work in grass

:16:51.:16:55.

roots sport has given him a new lease of life and it's reunited him

:16:55.:17:00.

with old friends. Thunted is on to find this year's hero.

:17:00.:17:07.

The hunt is on. Netball has been Syd smails' love for 50 years and he

:17:08.:17:14.

shows no sign of slowing down. He admits winning the award put a new

:17:14.:17:21.

spring in his step. Last year, it was very emotional for me. It's been

:17:21.:17:26.

a wonderful year. I've almost become famous. Next year, I'll have to go

:17:27.:17:32.

back. He's so vital to the club that their name is Sydney spelt

:17:32.:17:38.

backwards. The publicity brought new recruits and it's brought old faces

:17:38.:17:42.

back into his life. A footballer I played with some

:17:42.:17:47.

30—odd years ago got in touch and we are keeping in touch and also, an

:17:47.:17:53.

old relative from 30 years ago, they got in touch as well. They found

:17:53.:17:58.

that they saw me on the television and looked me up. Winning the unsung

:17:58.:18:03.

hero was a sporting treasure for Syd, but he's just as happy on the

:18:03.:18:10.

court doing what he does best. Who can you nominate? We are looking

:18:10.:18:14.

for an individual or a pair, got to be over 16, and who give their time

:18:14.:18:19.

voluntarily and for no financial reward, to allow other people to

:18:19.:18:23.

participate in sport. You can download a nomination form on the

:18:23.:18:26.

BBC Sport website. Against the odds, a group of writers

:18:26.:18:44.

have managed to get backing to put on a literary festival. With the

:18:44.:18:48.

help of a bank, farmers' market and pub, a Birmingham suburb is seeing a

:18:48.:18:51.

literary festival looking likely to be a major draw this weekend.

:18:51.:19:01.

Preparing for a pub festival. Those with dreams of being published. The

:19:01.:19:09.

writers group are behind the pow wow literary festival bringing together

:19:09.:19:13.

fledgling authors. People offer you constructive

:19:13.:19:17.

criticism and give you different ideas to think about and consider so

:19:17.:19:20.

it's positive. Pow wow has managed to secure

:19:20.:19:25.

commercial sponsorship for their third festival with Mosley's the

:19:25.:19:29.

Prince of Wales peer garden providing the venue. We like to be

:19:29.:19:34.

small, local, flexible and keep the character. As far as I know, we are

:19:34.:19:38.

the only literary festival that takes place in a pub. Most authors

:19:38.:19:42.

will tell you writing the novel is half the battle, the next hurdle is

:19:42.:19:46.

getting published. Festivals like this give young writers the chance

:19:47.:19:50.

to hear from those that know the business. Mosley—based novelist

:19:50.:19:57.

Maureen Carter, the creator of the critically acclaimed DSB Morris

:19:57.:20:01.

novel is about to publish another novel.

:20:01.:20:06.

When you are writing, you are on your own. When you have finished it,

:20:06.:20:09.

you have got to make sure people out there know that it exists. With

:20:10.:20:15.

150,000 new titles every year, how is your name going to come to the

:20:15.:20:20.

forefront? You have to go out and do turns and twirls and twinkle. Pow

:20:20.:20:26.

wow promises a two—day workshop and guest appearances. Who knows from

:20:26.:20:30.

Birmingham beginnings to the next Booker Prize winner?

:20:30.:20:37.

There are collectors around the world, some willing to pay hundreds

:20:37.:20:40.

of thousands of pounds to own the bright and beautiful designs of

:20:40.:20:44.

Moorcroft Pottery. A fraction of them descended on Stoke—on—Trent to

:20:44.:20:51.

join in the centenary celebrations. Retracing the steps of William mar

:20:51.:20:55.

croft as he moved his small team of Potters to his new factory. As they

:20:55.:21:02.

re—enacted the events of 1913, the workers were joined by workers from

:21:02.:21:09.

across the world gathering at the Moorcroft home. Be

:21:09.:21:12.

There's always a wonderful synergy between the decoration and the form.

:21:12.:21:17.

I'm besotted by this stuff because it's the best of British.

:21:17.:21:22.

Moorcroft is art pottery created by highly skilled workers and the

:21:22.:21:27.

skills used a century ago remain largely unchanged. Each piece is

:21:27.:21:32.

still hand—paint and this is the only pottery in the world using

:21:32.:21:36.

these techniques. Before being painted, each piece is individually

decoration. Because it's hand—painted, it's like

hand writing, it's never identical. I've been here 26 years. I think the

its workers that's behind the company's continued success,

:22:00.:22:05.

according to its current owners. Every piece takes hours and hours to

paint. That is the same technique that's been used here in this

:22:11.:22:15.

company for 100 years. That, I believe, is part of its success.

:22:15.:22:20.

As the company celebrates its centenary, it's ware is increasingly

:22:20.:22:24.

sought after by collectors. Traditional skills hoping a 21st

:22:28.:22:32.

Beautiful. If you are having your tea, have a

:22:32.:22:36.

breather because a tiny bug never before found in the Midlands has

:22:36.:22:40.

turned up in cow pats at Sutton park. It's not the first time

:22:40.:22:45.

something now has appeared there and you could help the experts discover

:22:45.:22:50.

more as part of the summer wild life event takes part in Sutton Park.

:22:50.:22:57.

David Greggy—Kumar is there for us. How can people help —— David

:22:57.:23:03.

Gregory—Kumar. If people come down here, they can

:23:03.:23:08.

meet their favourite wildlife presenters, they'll meet baby

:23:08.:23:11.

animals and will be able to take parts in the bioblitz where they try

:23:11.:23:17.

to find as many species as possible. Last time they did that, they found

:23:17.:23:22.

something completely new. Cattle have grazed this landscape

:23:22.:23:26.

for hundreds of years and what they leave behind has shaped the

:23:26.:23:32.

landscape too. Matthew, why were you poking around in cow pow? —— cow

:23:32.:23:41.

poo? You can feigned all sorts, worms, all sorts of interesting

:23:41.:23:48.

things living and feeding. It provides food, resource, also

:23:48.:23:56.

food for birds, swallows and at night bats fly around as well. Now

:23:56.:24:03.

these grubs will become dung beetles and those gathered as part of a

:24:03.:24:06.

weekend held a bit of a surprise. On the back of the beetle they found a

:24:06.:24:13.

tiny fat—headed lolly—pop—like structure and scraped them off and

:24:13.:24:16.

put them under the microscope to have a look. This is what they

:24:17.:24:20.

found. A tortoise—shell mite never recorded in the Midlands before.

:24:20.:24:23.

This isn't the first time something new's turned up in the park. 60 or

:24:23.:24:28.

so years ago, you wouldn't have found this. This is called a gall

:24:28.:24:35.

and there are some healthy acorns and there's a wasp lava in there.

:24:35.:24:43.

Now, this wasp didn't live in this country until about 60 years ago and

:24:43.:24:47.

the first place I found it in Britain was here in Sutton Park.

:24:47.:24:51.

This weekend, you might discover a new species if you look hard enough.

We have come inside now. There's plenty of shelter here in the summer

of wildlife event but the forecast for the next two days isn't too bad.

:25:01.:25:08.

More details on our Facebook page. You will also find a link to other

:25:08.:25:12.

wildlife events happening across the weekend if you can't get here.

:25:12.:25:18.

One final piece of advice for all prospective wildlife enthuse yas, if

:25:18.:25:21.

you are poking around in cow poo, it can be very interesting but do wash

:25:21.:25:26.

your hands afterwards. Great advice.

:25:26.:25:31.

I don't know about you, I got gently drenched this afternoon. Wasn't too

:25:31.:25:34.

pleasant. Will the weather be better tomorrow?

:25:34.:25:37.

A soggy end to the day, a soggy end to the weekend and on top of that,

:25:37.:25:41.

we have autumn storms to contend with. There will be a brief break in

:25:41.:25:45.

that. We have a pleasant day tomorrow with good spells of

:25:45.:25:49.

sunshine, but then through Sunday, stronger winds to contend with and

:25:50.:25:53.

also the return of some rain. There's plenty of rain about to end

:25:53.:25:57.

today. Heavy pulses still to come. We could see up 2010 mm of rain

:25:57.:26:01.

falling in places. It will eventually start to move off through

:26:01.:26:05.

tonight to leave a dry start to our Saturday. Some cloud overnight is

:26:06.:26:11.

helping temperatures a little so they'll stay in double figures,

:26:11.:26:14.

possibly dropping to nine in Herefordshire. We start off Saturday

:26:14.:26:18.

with a bit of cloud here and there. That rain moves off and the cloud

:26:18.:26:22.

will start to break and we'll see the sun come out. It will be a

:26:22.:26:25.

pleasant day tomorrow. The sunshine will help the temperatures. They

:26:25.:26:29.

will manage to get into mid teens for most. Under the cloud, they'll

:26:29.:26:34.

struggle a little. It will be a fine and dry tend to our Saturday,

:26:34.:26:38.

something to enjoy, the calm before the storm, so to speak. It will be

:26:38.:26:42.

clear skies overnight with light winds. Temperatures will fall away

:26:42.:26:46.

and we are looking at them dropping down into single figures, possibly

:26:47.:26:51.

even getting down to six in Herefordshire. Waiting in the wings,

:26:51.:26:57.

the next weather front. It's coupled with a deep low which is causing

:26:57.:27:01.

real substantial wind to come through on Saturday. We could see

:27:01.:27:06.

some really strong gusts on Sunday and there will be some gale force

:27:06.:27:10.

winds coming through as well, particularly to the north of region

:27:10.:27:14.

and then the rain will come in, so it will feel cooler and unpleasant.

:27:14.:27:18.

Temperatures still managing to make it to mid teens, but with the wind,

:27:18.:27:22.

it will feel unpleasant. As we move through to the start of the new

:27:23.:27:26.

working week, staying unsettled with more wind on the cards as well.

:27:26.:27:31.

Diabolical. Thank you! Let us recap on the top
