The Labour candidate for the Stoke-on-Trent Central

:00:00.:00:07.

by-election, Gareth Snell, says he'll stand behind party

:00:08.:00:09.

leader Jeremy Corbyn, despite previously calling him

:00:10.:00:11.

Mr Corbyn was in the Potteries today to drum up support ahead

:00:12.:00:17.

He's a man with two by-elections on his hands.

:00:18.:00:26.

Jeremy Corbyn was in Hanley today, for one reason.

:00:27.:00:29.

Go out there, convince people to vote for Gareth to be

:00:30.:00:32.

Go out there, and get the support for him!

:00:33.:00:43.

Labour's candidate Gareth Snell is a local councillor,

:00:44.:00:46.

This election is going to be fought toe-to-toe with Ukip.

:00:47.:00:51.

Jeremy is the leader, I will be supporting him,

:00:52.:00:53.

he will be supporting me, and on the 23rd February I

:00:54.:00:56.

look forward to being elected to Parliament.

:00:57.:00:59.

And in the purple corner, Ukip's Paul Nuttall also set

:01:00.:01:01.

There's no doubt that this is Labour's seat to lose.

:01:02.:01:08.

The challenge on February 23rd will be getting voters

:01:09.:01:10.

In the 2015 general election, this constituency had one

:01:11.:01:13.

I didn't even know there was anything going on!

:01:14.:01:23.

I knew we were due for one, I didn't know when it was exactly.

:01:24.:01:28.

With the window for nominations still open,

:01:29.:01:30.

But Keira the collie has already made hers.

:01:31.:01:35.

Emma Thomas, BBC Midlands Today, Stoke-on-Trent.

:01:36.:01:41.

And a full list of all candidates for the Stoke Central by-election

:01:42.:01:44.

And of course there'll be more on the Sunday Politics

:01:47.:01:49.

A man's been arrested in Belgium in connection with the murder

:01:53.:01:55.

of a man who was shot in West Bromwich.

:01:56.:01:58.

33-year-old Carl Campbell was killed as he sat in a car

:01:59.:02:00.

Police say a 24-year-old man was detained earlier this month

:02:01.:02:05.

and his extradition to the UK is being arranged.

:02:06.:02:08.

Two other men have already appeared in court charged with murder.

:02:09.:02:13.

It's been revealed a plane was in a near miss with a drone,

:02:14.:02:16.

just 500 feet above a primary school.

:02:17.:02:19.

The aircraft was on its final approach into Birmingham Airport

:02:20.:02:22.

last September when the pilot spotted the device hovering

:02:23.:02:24.

The UK Airprox Board said despite the near-miss,

:02:25.:02:29.

the flight was able to go on to land.

:02:30.:02:32.

Police have been unable to locate the drone, or its operator.

:02:33.:02:37.

The police watchdog says it's investigating an officer who pulled

:02:38.:02:41.

In football, Wolves are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup

:02:42.:02:44.

after a thrilling 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.

:02:45.:02:47.

The visitors took the lead after just 53 seconds.

:02:48.:02:49.

Richard Stearman left unmarked to head in Helder Costa's free-kick.

:02:50.:02:52.

Costa then set up Andreas Weimann, who calmly doubled Wolves'

:02:53.:02:54.

Liverpool scored late on to set up a frantic finale, but Wolves held

:02:55.:02:58.

We knew what we had to do coming here, we know

:02:59.:03:07.

Whoever it was we played, it was going to be a top, top team.

:03:08.:03:12.

We knew what we had to do, we had a game plan, we went into it,

:03:13.:03:15.

We've got such pace up front with Weimann, Costa and Nouha.

:03:16.:03:19.

It was one of those games where we really came out on top.

:03:20.:03:22.

Meanwhile in the Championship, Birmingham's poor run continues,

:03:23.:03:24.

In League One, Walsall drew 3-3 with Bury.

:03:25.:03:30.

Finally, in rugby's Anglo-Welsh Cup Wasps

:03:46.:03:50.

And Worcester were beaten 28-22 by Harlequins.

:03:51.:03:58.

It's been quite a miserable day for most across the region.

:03:59.:04:00.

Here's Alex Hamilton with the latest forecast.

:04:01.:04:06.

We've had a mixed bag so far this weekend,

:04:07.:04:09.

We've got a messy array of fronts coming in our direction,

:04:10.:04:13.

As for tonight, we will have some clearer spells at times,

:04:14.:04:19.

but more showers moving across the region.

:04:20.:04:22.

A few mist patches here and there, and a chance of some frost forming,

:04:23.:04:27.

and icy patches as well on untreated routes.

:04:28.:04:32.

Tomorrow morning, some mist patches in place,

:04:33.:04:36.

brighter spells here and there in between the showers.

:04:37.:04:38.

Later on in the afternoon, more rain moving across the region,

:04:39.:04:41.

I'll leave you with the outlook, things are turning milder,

:04:42.:04:48.

but more unsettled over the course of the weekend.

:04:49.:04:53.

We'll be back tomorrow evening at 6:20pm.

:04:54.:04:55.

Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

:04:56.:05:13.

Hello. If you don't like the cold weather, it certainly felt a lot

:05:14.:05:19.

better for you today, at least across the southern half of the UK.

:05:20.:05:23.

Still pretty chilly in northern areas, even some sleet. When we see

:05:24.:05:27.

this transition from one type of weather to another, we get a lot of

:05:28.:05:31.

variable weather. That's what we've had today that is what is on the way

:05:32.:05:35.

tomorrow. Sunshine and showers today, and tomorrow will be quite a

:05:36.:05:40.

mix as well. Lots of clouds in the Atlantic ready to come our way. The

:05:41.:05:47.

short term, just bits and spots of rain in the western areas, some rain

:05:48.:05:51.

in the North least. Cold enough for some ice to form in Northern

:05:52.:05:54.

Ireland, northern England and parts of Scotland. In the south it should

:05:55.:05:58.

be frost free, all in advance of this weather front which will spoil

:05:59.:06:03.

the weather for many of us across the southern half of the UK

:06:04.:06:04.

tomorrow. Pretty

:06:05.:06:07.
