Good afternoon. Lancashire Police have released an
EvoFIT picture to try to identify a man's body that was found washed up
on the beach at Fleetwood. A dog walker made the discovery on Monday
at Rossall and the coastguard helped recover it. Officers hope someone
will recognise him and they can find out how he came to be in the water.
Youngsters from across the North West were enjoying a rather unusual
lock`in last night at Blackburn s Anglican Catherdral. There were
bouncy castles and football kickabouts between the pews in one
of the biggest youth events ever held by the Church of England in
Lancashire. Inside this Anglican Cathedral,
there was a midnight mass of activity. Fun and face at this all
might use event. It is really exciting, because you
can meet new friends. It is really brilliant, because it is a chance to
get to know people that have the same beliefs as you and your able to
speak to them about it. These youngster were on a mission to
have fun. There was no time for sleep. But there was time for some
quite reflection This the purpose is to send out the
message that the church is for younger people to. It is a great
occasion to gather them here in the Cathedral and to do things that are
different than what people think happens in church. It is breaking
the mould. This is now an annual event, a new
way of building on the face of young people. `` the faith.
Sport now and in Rugby League Wigan Warriors lost 36 points to 14 to
Sydney Roosters in the World Cup Challenge in Australia this morning.
Wigan battled after half`time and reduced the deficit with a try from
Joe Burgess and two from Josh Charnley, but in the end it wasn't
enough. Staying with Super League, last
night saw Saints beat Hull FC in the match that also represented first
leg of the inaugural Steve Prescott Trophy. The England and Ireland
full`back, who died of cancer in November at the age of 39, played
for both clubs. The walkway linking the Langtree Park Stadium to the
town centre has just been named the player who's also remembered for his
tireless charity work. It has been very emotional, for his
family and for the supporters, but it is also celebrating his and his
contribution to the club. The club went for many years without winning
a trophy. In 1996, with his help, we turn that around with the Super
League title. Football, and Everton's match at
Chelsea kicks off within the hour. Manager Roberto Martinez says his
team needs to bounce back from the disappointment of their last Premier
League match at Spurs. The disappointment that we had I
think is something that we need to change, something that we need to
correct and use the experience that when you are the better side and you
play well, you need to win the football game. We are looking for
that challenge ahead. And here is the weather.
It has not been a bad start to the week. We have seen some sunshine.
There is some rain in some areas, but other places will stay mild
nine degrees. The rain continues to push in this evening and overnight
the winds will pick in, so it is cloudy and breezy. Not very cold,
with temperatures at 89 Celsius A wet and windy day tomorrow, but it
should be mild. I will be back just after 6pm.
Goodbye. Good afternoon. It has been a lovely
start with some very welcome winter sunshine. For the rest of the day,
the further east you are, you will hang onto that for much of the
