Welcome to North West Tonight with Annabel Tiffin.

:00:00.:00:00.

Six people are killed as a tour bus carrying pilgrims from Manchester

:00:00.:00:09.

Obviously, it's a very bad time for the families

:00:10.:00:17.

One of those who died was a two-month-old baby.

:00:18.:00:23.

New figures show we have more failing secondary

:00:24.:00:29.

Criticism for the North West Ambulance Service as health bosses

:00:30.:00:35.

say its safety and leadership must be improved.

:00:36.:00:41.

How Rufus the rescue dog saved little Betsy's life.

:00:42.:00:58.

Four members of the same family from Manchester have been killed

:00:59.:01:01.

Among those killed is a two-month-old boy.

:01:02.:01:06.

They were on a pilgrimage and were travelling from Mecca

:01:07.:01:09.

Our correspondent Clare Fallon is live in South Manchester for us

:01:10.:01:14.

and there are tributes being paid this evening.

:01:15.:01:27.

They are. Really heartfelt tributes being paid this evening. I have been

:01:28.:01:33.

talking to some of the extended members of this family and I think

:01:34.:01:37.

it's fair to say that they are just absolutely struggling to come to

:01:38.:01:41.

terms with what has happened. They find it just unimaginable. They have

:01:42.:01:45.

been telling me that the relatives may have lost, they have been paying

:01:46.:01:50.

tremendous tribute to them. Exactly what happened is still not entirely

:01:51.:01:54.

clear but I will go through with you the details that we know. 12 members

:01:55.:02:00.

of this family were on this pilgrimage, most of them lived in

:02:01.:02:05.

Manchester although two of them lived in Glasgow. They were on this

:02:06.:02:08.

pilgrimage and were travelling from Mecca to Medina when the crash

:02:09.:02:12.

happened. They were all together in the same vehicle and as you

:02:13.:02:16.

mentioned, among the six people who have been killed, a baby just two

:02:17.:02:20.

months old called Adam. Also killed in this crash, two sisters as well

:02:21.:02:31.

as those who were killed, six people were injured. One of them is in a

:02:32.:02:33.

critical condition and among those people who have been injured is a

:02:34.:02:40.

woman who has lost her two-month-old child, the mother of Adam Angie has

:02:41.:02:44.

also lost both of her parents so this is an incredibly difficult

:02:45.:02:51.

thing to to be dealing with. Earlier, I spoke to the travel

:02:52.:02:53.

company through which the family booked this journey. They have been

:02:54.:03:01.

helping with their trouble. Well cured from Mohannad Arif.

:03:02.:03:02.

Obviously, it's a very bad time for the families

:03:03.:03:06.

Since last night, we were with the families.

:03:07.:03:09.

We were sharing their grief and we were

:03:10.:03:11.

trying to help them out with any they needed.

:03:12.:03:19.

So I think you get a sense there that as well as dealing with the

:03:20.:03:24.

emotional trauma this family is going through at the moment, there

:03:25.:03:27.

are also practicalities that they are dealing with and the most

:03:28.:03:31.

immediate members of the family are travelling out to Saudi Arabia this

:03:32.:03:34.

evening so they can be with their injured relatives. Thank you very

:03:35.:03:35.

much. She will have more at 10:25pm. A man in his 20s is in a stable

:03:36.:03:42.

condition after being It happened in Stockbridge

:03:43.:03:45.

village yesterday evening. Police believe the shooting

:03:46.:03:47.

was targeted, and have increased

:03:48.:03:49.

patrols in the area. Baroness Helen Newlove,

:03:50.:03:50.

whose husband Gary was killed outside their home in Warrington,

:03:51.:03:53.

is urging the Government to strengthen the rights

:03:54.:03:56.

of victims of crime. The Ministry of Justice says it

:03:57.:03:59.

will announce plans "in due course". Baroness Newlove says

:04:00.:04:02.

in the past year only 15% of victims had been given

:04:03.:04:04.

the opportunity to make a statement This review shows that enough

:04:05.:04:07.

is enough and I'm looking for the Government to ensure that victims

:04:08.:04:14.

have the rights that they truly deserve to give them respect

:04:15.:04:17.

and dignity and also the protection that they feel that their voices

:04:18.:04:21.

being listened to. One in six secondary

:04:22.:04:28.

schools in the North West That's according to new figures

:04:29.:04:30.

from the Department for Education. It is more than anywhere else in the

:04:31.:04:41.

country. More than one in eight young

:04:42.:04:42.

people are being taught in schools that haven't managed

:04:43.:04:45.

to meet new national standards. Ian Haslam has been looking at this

:04:46.:04:47.

in more detail and joins us now. Yes, these figures show that young

:04:48.:04:51.

people in our region are more likely than in any other

:04:52.:04:54.

part of the country. And three of the five

:04:55.:04:57.

worst-performing local authorities are in the North West -

:04:58.:04:59.

Halton, Oldham and, with the worst

:05:00.:05:02.

record in the country, Knowsley where every one

:05:03.:05:04.

of the borough's six secondary This was the reaction

:05:05.:05:07.

of parents today. Most of my son's class

:05:08.:05:12.

actually went out of borough I was proud of what they put

:05:13.:05:17.

my children through. The education seems

:05:18.:05:25.

very poor around here. Knowsley Council declined

:05:26.:05:27.

an interview but told us it's "naturally disappointed"

:05:28.:05:29.

and is already making changes. Four of the six secondary schools

:05:30.:05:33.

are now academies and it's recently invested a million pounds

:05:34.:05:36.

to establish an Education Commission That million pounds

:05:37.:05:40.

follows years of problems. Knowsley has long been

:05:41.:05:43.

one of the country's It has the country's

:05:44.:05:45.

worst GCSE results and, when this school stops offering

:05:46.:05:49.

A-level courses this year, it'll make it the only council

:05:50.:05:53.

area in England Our three worst performing

:05:54.:05:55.

areas are all Labour run authorities, but today

:05:56.:06:00.

the Shadow Education Secretary and MP for Ashton-under-Lyne told me

:06:01.:06:02.

Government failings were to blame. We really need to see class sizes

:06:03.:06:07.

reducing again We need good quality teaching

:06:08.:06:10.

and we need decent schools for all our kids, not just

:06:11.:06:14.

for those down south. But all the north-west's worst

:06:15.:06:17.

performing local authorities And they also had nearly half

:06:18.:06:23.

if not over half of their budgets, cut over this period.

:06:24.:06:28.

We asked the Department for Education for an interview.

:06:29.:06:30.

They declined, but say that over the last six years, the gap

:06:31.:06:33.

between disadvantaged pupils and others has narrowed.

:06:34.:06:38.

Let's talk about this further with Damian McNulty

:06:39.:06:41.

Thank you very much for joining us this evening. Why is the Northwest

:06:42.:06:54.

performing so badly in secondary schools? One of the first things to

:06:55.:06:58.

remember is that it's not as simple as just the new progress measure and

:06:59.:07:03.

a high degree of caution needs to be used. We need to think of the hard

:07:04.:07:08.

work and dedication not just of the young people but of the teachers as

:07:09.:07:13.

well. On top of that, there are some unique features within the Northwest

:07:14.:07:19.

that remain challenges for the communities in general. We have

:07:20.:07:23.

heard about social deprivation and I would echo the shadow Secretary of

:07:24.:07:29.

State's view on council funding. It is not unique in that though, is it?

:07:30.:07:34.

Other local authorities would say that their money is tight, they

:07:35.:07:37.

would also say that they have deprivation. It does not really

:07:38.:07:41.

explain why we have come out so badly. No, but we need to look at

:07:42.:07:46.

all the services and look at the educational provision on offer for

:07:47.:07:49.

children from preschool all the way through primary school and into

:07:50.:07:53.

secondary schools. There is no doubt that the councils in the north-west

:07:54.:07:58.

of England have faced a sustained, substantial cuts to services at all

:07:59.:08:03.

ages and supporters of our most vulnerable and most challenging

:08:04.:08:09.

areas. Some people would say that a failing school is purely down to

:08:10.:08:12.

feeling teaching, feeling readership. Well, I refer you back

:08:13.:08:20.

to the simplistic measure. The Northwest of England traditionally

:08:21.:08:23.

has trained many, many teachers more than is required in those teachers

:08:24.:08:26.

go across all of the UK. Many teachers across the Northwest have

:08:27.:08:31.

worked in challenging schools, go on to work on other more successful

:08:32.:08:34.

school so it's definitely not about the calibre of the teaching and

:08:35.:08:38.

learning, it is about those institutions that they work in, the

:08:39.:08:42.

schools, academies, allowing them to focus on their job of teaching and

:08:43.:08:46.

learning and not be focused on other workload intent issues that take

:08:47.:08:49.

away from adding that valued the young people they work with. Are you

:08:50.:08:54.

saying that reports like this, assessments like this are actually

:08:55.:08:58.

more of a hindrance than a help? They certainly can be. If we just

:08:59.:09:03.

judge schools on one simple measure and Knowsley schools from many years

:09:04.:09:06.

have had a bit of a kicking in terms of the academic progression. There

:09:07.:09:13.

are many historic reasons that are very complex that I'm happy to going

:09:14.:09:17.

to around a long legacy over 30 or 40 years of families and children

:09:18.:09:22.

going to traditional schools that those families would have known in

:09:23.:09:25.

the Liverpool area, St Helens area and many have stayed with that and

:09:26.:09:31.

those children tend to be those that attain highest at primary school

:09:32.:09:37.

results. Thank you very much for joining us this evening. You're very

:09:38.:09:40.

welcome. The North West Ambulance Service

:09:41.:09:41.

has been told it has to improve by the health

:09:42.:09:44.

watchdog, the CQC. Inspectors expressed concerns

:09:45.:09:46.

about staff shortages, particularly paramedics,

:09:47.:09:47.

and a lack of training The Trust says it's faced

:09:48.:09:49.

an extremely challenging year Our health correspondent

:09:50.:09:55.

Gill Dummigan reports. The president control room, one of

:09:56.:10:07.

three in the Northwest. Today, they'll deal with around 1100 calls

:10:08.:10:11.

and around 4000 across the three states. The most important thing to

:10:12.:10:15.

remember when you work in the control room is that at the end of

:10:16.:10:21.

every 999 col is a patient and one of our primary focuses in the

:10:22.:10:26.

initial training of staff is that everything has to be patient

:10:27.:10:31.

centric. The report found that the trust was effective and caring but

:10:32.:10:34.

it found that safety required improvement particularly when it

:10:35.:10:38.

came to emergency and urgent care. There were particular concerns with

:10:39.:10:43.

reporting of serious incidents and that some staff needed more training

:10:44.:10:48.

in safeguarding. Di CQC was can particularly concerned about the

:10:49.:10:51.

number of vacancies for Paris addicts at the time of the

:10:52.:10:56.

inspection nearly one in six posts will fill -- paramedics. They said

:10:57.:11:00.

this was causing too much strain on the paramedics who were working.

:11:01.:11:05.

There was no morale in some areas. A lot of the paramedics were working

:11:06.:11:09.

extra hours and overtime to compensate for the staff shortages.

:11:10.:11:14.

There was also reliance on community first responders to attend to

:11:15.:11:18.

emergency calls. The pressure is on the system are well documented. Long

:11:19.:11:23.

queues outside a and E and the last year at 999 calls have gone up by

:11:24.:11:28.

23%. There has been an increase pressure on staff. They have to go

:11:29.:11:32.

out and deal with more intensive tuition and experienced staff are

:11:33.:11:37.

leaving to find less pressurised and better paid jobs. The service as

:11:38.:11:40.

they accept the findings but they have already started solving the

:11:41.:11:44.

problems, particularly in recruitment. Already, they have

:11:45.:11:47.

taken on paramedics from Poland and Finland. We are not taking this

:11:48.:11:53.

lately and we are a learning organisation and the things that we

:11:54.:11:55.

have learned in this report we will be learning from and we have learned

:11:56.:11:59.

from and as I said earlier, we have actually corrected the bulk of them

:12:00.:12:02.

now and some of the things that are outstanding are things that cannot

:12:03.:12:04.

be solved immediately but we have plans to deal with them. This is one

:12:05.:12:08.

of the last of the ambulance trusts in England to be reported on. Of the

:12:09.:12:12.

nine so far rated, seven have been found wanting. Two seriously so. It

:12:13.:12:18.

is a challenging time for the service. The question is whether the

:12:19.:12:21.

response to that challenge can be improved.

:12:22.:12:24.

Overseas fans help make Manchester United the world's

:12:25.:12:30.

How the springador saved Betsy's life and why

:12:31.:12:38.

That might get a few people thinking.

:12:39.:12:50.

Will get some e-mails about that! The former Bishop of Liverpool says

:12:51.:12:51.

being made a Freeman of Liverpool Is being given in large part for his

:12:52.:13:00.

work on Hillsborough disaster. They should change chaired the

:13:01.:13:05.

independent panel. I'm sure you remember. But it also recognises as

:13:06.:13:09.

wider work. He has been speaking to our reporter Andy Gill.

:13:10.:13:10.

We spoke to Bishop James in the Lord Mayor's parlour

:13:11.:13:13.

at Liverpool Town Hall just ahead of the ceremony

:13:14.:13:15.

In 2012, he chaired the Hillsborough Independent Panel.

:13:16.:13:19.

Its report led to new inquests for the 96 people

:13:20.:13:23.

Last year, the new jury decided the 96 had been

:13:24.:13:29.

I asked the bishop what's getting the freedom of

:13:30.:13:32.

It's a huge personal honour. Although, I suppose the great honour

:13:33.:13:44.

has been to serve the people of Liverpool for 15 years and

:13:45.:13:50.

especially the Hillsborough families and the survivors. You recently got

:13:51.:13:53.

a knighthood as well. How does that compare with the freedom of

:13:54.:13:57.

Liverpool? Well, in Liverpool, nothing compares to the freedom of

:13:58.:14:00.

the city of Liverpool! But it's quite interesting because the

:14:01.:14:06.

freedom of the city and, indeed, the United, they are ways of the

:14:07.:14:11.

community recognising the importance of what has been done and the

:14:12.:14:16.

families over the years have always believed that their struggle for

:14:17.:14:20.

truth and justice has not just been for themselves and the survivors,

:14:21.:14:26.

it's not just been for the city even, but it's actually been for the

:14:27.:14:30.

nation. But the award also recognises the bishop's other

:14:31.:14:33.

contributions to Liverpool. He chaired a regeneration panel in the

:14:34.:14:38.

Kensington district and was Bishop during the murders of Rhys Jones and

:14:39.:14:44.

Anthony Walker. One of the features of Liverpool is that when terrible

:14:45.:14:48.

things happen, people come together in extraordinary solidarity. We are

:14:49.:14:55.

talking about the influence you've had as a former bishop of Liverpool,

:14:56.:15:00.

but held the city changed you during your time is your? I remember one

:15:01.:15:04.

senior clergyman of the dioceses taking the aside just after I

:15:05.:15:08.

arrived and saying, Bishop, if you can't laugh at yourself, you'd

:15:09.:15:11.

better pack your bags and go. It was very good advice. And this tumour

:15:12.:15:17.

for which Liverpool and indeed the Hall of the Northwest is famous,

:15:18.:15:23.

this Schumer actually flows from the humanity of the place. There is an

:15:24.:15:29.

earthiness about Liverpool and as you open your hearts to people and

:15:30.:15:35.

they open your their heart to you, I was affected by that earthiness and

:15:36.:15:39.

that humour. The Bishop is now hosting a review of the Hillsborough

:15:40.:15:43.

families' experiences over the past 27 years.

:15:44.:15:49.

Many congratulations to Bishop James for receiving the freedom of the

:15:50.:15:52.

city. We wouldn't normally bring

:15:53.:15:54.

you a story about a council constructing a new entrance

:15:55.:15:57.

to one of its buildings, but the building in question -

:15:58.:15:59.

Preston's Harris Museum - is considered by many to be

:16:00.:16:02.

an architectural gem. The plans to change

:16:03.:16:04.

the Grade One-listed icon are being condemned as

:16:05.:16:05.

a "mutilation" by conservationists. Even if you've never been in it,

:16:06.:16:07.

you'll know it if you know Preston. Slap bang in the middle

:16:08.:16:12.

of the city, the Harris Museum. It's built in the same style

:16:13.:16:15.

as the British Museum, but where the British Museum

:16:16.:16:18.

is approached by a grand flight of steps, the entrance to the Harris

:16:19.:16:21.

is through a side door. There used to be a road here,

:16:22.:16:27.

so the architect couldn't put a flight of steps down

:16:28.:16:30.

from the museum The council believes

:16:31.:16:32.

that the foot of the It puts people off going inside,

:16:33.:16:35.

and they want to put a new entrance right here in the

:16:36.:16:40.

middle of that wall. Incidentally, in case

:16:41.:16:43.

you thought they'd already started building the new entrance,

:16:44.:16:45.

the crane blocking our view today But this gives you some idea

:16:46.:16:48.

of what the door would look like. A door in the front, some entrance

:16:49.:16:54.

in the front, would be one way of allowing greater access

:16:55.:16:57.

and would show to the rest of the city that the Harris

:16:58.:17:02.

was a welcoming place. Critics say the entrance

:17:03.:17:05.

would mutilate the classical facade. This is our city's

:17:06.:17:10.

finest work of art. It's like having the Mona Lisa

:17:11.:17:15.

and saying, "Here, that lass, "I'll take my felt tip out and just

:17:16.:17:17.

put a smile on her." The council's bidding

:17:18.:17:23.

for ?10 million of lottery money and the organisation that protects

:17:24.:17:27.

Grade One-listed buildings would still have to

:17:28.:17:34.

be approve the plan. It would be really good

:17:35.:17:36.

because now people have to go I mean, it's practical but then

:17:37.:17:43.

so are the side entrances. Yeah, it would spoil

:17:44.:17:50.

the building because it looks So I think people more my age

:17:51.:17:52.

would think, oh, what's that? Next step, the council

:17:53.:17:58.

will find out if it's won It is a stunning building though.

:17:59.:18:16.

It's got us talking, that's for sure.

:18:17.:18:17.

Sport now, and while Manchester United may be struggling

:18:18.:18:19.

to return to the pinnacle of the Premier League,

:18:20.:18:21.

they have returned to the top of football's rich list

:18:22.:18:23.

They last topped the table a decade ago, but last year they earned ?515

:18:24.:18:33.

million, more than Barcelona and Real Madrid. Manchester city are the

:18:34.:18:37.

fifth richest club in the world, Liverpool be ninth richest club in

:18:38.:18:40.

the world. What is about the Northwest? But it is United who are

:18:41.:18:41.

making the headlines. Manchester United haven't been

:18:42.:18:43.

the Premier League's number one since Sir Alex Ferguson's final

:18:44.:18:46.

season four years ago. But far from stalling,

:18:47.:18:49.

their commercial momentum And after a gap of over

:18:50.:18:51.

a decade, they're back something the industry's

:18:52.:18:56.

experts have seen coming. They realised that certainly with

:18:57.:19:02.

new media coming along that there were vast opportunities for the club

:19:03.:19:04.

to enhance the money which can be generated from fans,

:19:05.:19:08.

sponsors and so on. United's commercial growth is,

:19:09.:19:11.

of course driven by demand. They count their global fanbase

:19:12.:19:14.

in the hundreds of millions. As there always are, there

:19:15.:19:17.

are plenty of tourist fans And their big sponsors

:19:18.:19:20.

pay a heavy premium. Addidas - ?750 million

:19:21.:19:24.

over ten years. Chevrolet who are on the front

:19:25.:19:28.

of the shirts - just shy But it's the number of deals around

:19:29.:19:31.

the world that tips the balance, including seven mobile

:19:32.:19:39.

phone companies from Azerbejan to the

:19:40.:19:41.

Carribean and Nigeria, separate soft drinks

:19:42.:19:46.

of the fact that United have all of these fans in all

in the transfer market. But tickets and merchandise

remain expensive. Ten years before the

:20:18.:20:21.

takeover in real terms, Manchester United were top

:20:22.:20:24.

of the Deloitte league then and so we're just getting back

:20:25.:20:26.

after, you know, ten years

:20:27.:20:28.

of financial hardship. And with the current ?10 billion

:20:29.:20:30.

Premier League TV deal, there's no doubt they're working

in a favourable financial climate. But it's also fair to say that

terminated the contract of winger Tom Arscott

:21:10.:21:15.

with immediate effect. It comes after Sale complained

:21:16.:21:18.

to the Rugby Football League that one of their players -

:21:19.:21:22.

believed to be Arscott - gave information to a former club

:21:23.:21:24.

before a match between the two. We have some guests in the studio.

:21:25.:21:38.

You may be about to see one of them as she walked past... There she is!

:21:39.:21:39.

They say dog's are a man's best friend.

:21:40.:21:41.

It was definitely the case for 21-month-old Betsy

:21:42.:21:46.

whose life was saved by a rescue dog called Rufus.

:21:47.:21:55.

I don't know who is cuter, ruthless or Betsy.

:21:56.:21:59.

Rufus was staying with Betsy and her mum Emily in Macclesfield.

:22:00.:22:02.

Rufus raced to the rescue and raised the alarm.

:22:03.:22:07.

Along with Emily, Betsy and Ann Lovell from the charity

:22:08.:22:12.

Rufus actually is not your dog, Emily. He is a foster dog. From

:22:13.:22:29.

Labradors in need. You were looking over the Reed after him. Tel was

:22:30.:22:35.

what happens. Betsy had not been very well and then Rufus came in and

:22:36.:22:39.

started polling at me and barking and then I followed him through and

:22:40.:22:44.

Betsy had been sick and so I managed to put her over so that she could be

:22:45.:22:49.

sick so she wasn't in any danger after that. But it was Rufus you

:22:50.:22:55.

raise the alarm. So he sensed something was wrong? Yes, even

:22:56.:23:00.

before the alarm went off on the baby monitor. He was already there

:23:01.:23:03.

letting us know that she wasn't very well. Brilliant.

:23:04.:23:09.

I have a little word of that, I've been too busy! Excuse me. And, Rufus

:23:10.:23:14.

is a cross between a springer spaniel and a Labrador. Are they

:23:15.:23:20.

good pets? Labrador cross make fantastic pets. They are a boil,

:23:21.:23:28.

great family dogs. Britain's top choice as far as a dog goes. We have

:23:29.:23:32.

quite a lot of people on our waiting list and we have some dogs still

:23:33.:23:37.

waiting for homes. We are going to put the website on screen in a

:23:38.:23:42.

minute because Rufus, as you just explains, can't stay with you. He is

:23:43.:23:47.

a foster dog. He stays with us through a short time until he finds

:23:48.:23:52.

his feet. And we do have two other dogs, our own dogs. Once he finds a

:23:53.:23:58.

forever home through the charity, labrador is in need, he will go to

:23:59.:24:03.

that forever home. Before when you came and spoke to us, it was

:24:04.:24:06.

astonishing, he was showing her so much attention and really looking

:24:07.:24:10.

after her. They have an amazing bond. I think they are feeding off

:24:11.:24:14.

each other so she is a bit insecure and then he will pick her up on the

:24:15.:24:17.

other way round. They are very close. She likes to walk on the lead

:24:18.:24:21.

and stuff. I think you can see pictures of them together. Before I

:24:22.:24:27.

got distracted by my new best friends, I was bringing up the

:24:28.:24:31.

website. People can get in touch and they can put themselves through the

:24:32.:24:36.

process to adopt a dog, but it is a proper process and Rufus is up

:24:37.:24:41.

adoption, isn't he? He is, along with some other dogs at the moment.

:24:42.:24:45.

We are a charity entirely run by volunteers will stop we don't have

:24:46.:24:50.

anyone employed by the charity, we all work. We are desperate in the

:24:51.:24:54.

North West particularly for foster homes like Emily. People took on

:24:55.:24:59.

track for us and people to adopt. Fundraiser, sponsor our dogs that

:25:00.:25:04.

are in long-term foster and as a charity... I'm worried she's going

:25:05.:25:09.

to fall off! She's fine. Thank you very much.

:25:10.:25:15.

Thank you Rufus. Thank you Betsy who is the star of the show.

:25:16.:25:18.

They say never work with animals and children!

:25:19.:25:22.

But we like to. We have already mopped a little puddle of the four

:25:23.:25:27.

you'll be pleased to note. Puddles, you know.

:25:28.:25:32.

My favourite thing is that everyone at home is going, all, isn't he

:25:33.:25:39.

gorgeous! And none of them mean you, Roger.

:25:40.:25:45.

We have been stuck in a rut weather-wise but things will start

:25:46.:25:49.

to change. Temperatures will start to fall away this weekend. The

:25:50.:25:54.

result is a reason for this in our reason is that the error is coming

:25:55.:25:58.

from the continent. That will start tonight and the more southern part

:25:59.:26:00.

of the region may start to see temperatures falling a little bit.

:26:01.:26:05.

Just a little bit. When we move into this pattern, an area of high

:26:06.:26:08.

pressure is going to drop the error from the continent. We are going to

:26:09.:26:13.

get stuck in this pattern so we have been in the mild air and we will

:26:14.:26:16.

stay in this pattern and it will take some time for that to change.

:26:17.:26:19.

If you have been looking for bright days, cooler days, that is what we

:26:20.:26:22.

are moving into. At the minutes, I'll about the cloud. The cloud is

:26:23.:26:26.

with us and you can see spots drizzly rain here and there. In the

:26:27.:26:30.

more southern parts of the region, in the early hours we may see a

:26:31.:26:33.

break in the cloud cover here and there so that may allow one or two

:26:34.:26:39.

places to go to two degrees but still the numbers for the most part

:26:40.:26:43.

are pretty good, five and six. First thing tomorrow morning, a lot of

:26:44.:26:46.

cloud cover. One or two spots of rain but from the south, here comes

:26:47.:26:51.

this clear whether moving into parts of the Midlands, Staffordshire and

:26:52.:26:53.

Cheshire and Merseyside. The sun could come out from many places as

:26:54.:26:57.

you head through the afternoon so some brighter skies here and there.

:26:58.:27:01.

Not for everyone but eventually, we will start to feel this cooler air

:27:02.:27:04.

coming in so while the numbers on the chart are six or 7 degrees, that

:27:05.:27:09.

may be at lunchtime and as the cool air comes in, things will start to

:27:10.:27:12.

chill off and tomorrow night there could be a frost in many places. As

:27:13.:27:16.

we go through the weekend, that'll be the pattern. Cold air coming in,

:27:17.:27:21.

not wall-to-wall sunshine but some brighter skies and not one is

:27:22.:27:24.

listening to a word I say! Were sorry. She was very good.

:27:25.:27:36.

And lots of people want to adopt Rufus.

:27:37.:27:39.

Rufus, you have been brilliant to! Thank you for watching, have a

:27:40.:27:42.

wonderful evening., bye-bye! Bye-bye!

:27:43.:27:48.
