That's all from the BBC News at Six - so it's goodbye from me -

:00:00.:00:00.

Welcome to BBC Points West with Amanda Parr and Sabet Choudhury

:00:00.:00:07.

The special school under threat.

:00:08.:00:10.

Coln House in Gloucestershire could now be closed for good.

:00:11.:00:27.

There are no children at Coln House. Now it has emembers of the juried

:00:28.:00:33.

that the school faces closure. We speak to the wife

:00:34.:00:37.

of Sergeant Al Blackman serving life Explorer David Hempleman-Ad`ms

:00:38.:00:41.

returns from the Arctic with tales of disappearing sea ice

:00:42.:00:46.

and everything's set for renewed rivalry at The Rec as Bristol run

:00:47.:00:49.

out at Bath for the first The future of a special school

:00:50.:00:52.

in Gloucestershire is in dotbt tonight after the council rdvealed

:00:53.:01:09.

it's no longer financially viable. All the children at Coln Hotse

:01:10.:01:11.

in Fairford were removed in the summer after concerns

:01:12.:01:14.

were raised about pupil safdty. A consultation begins next week

:01:15.:01:16.

with the council saying that the possible closure

:01:17.:01:18.

of the school and the investigations into what went

:01:19.:01:20.

on there are unconnected. Here's our Gloucestershire

:01:21.:01:22.

reporter, Steve Knibbs. Even before Ofsted published

:01:23.:01:29.

the results of its inspection earlier this year the counchl

:01:30.:01:35.

was told of worrying concerns. Most notably a high number

:01:36.:01:40.

of physical restraints being used on pupils and a failure

:01:41.:01:43.

of the schools management As a result the County Council

:01:44.:01:45.

stepped in and removed the pupils I understand the headteacher

:01:46.:01:49.

and three non-teaching membdrs of staff have been suspended,

:01:50.:01:56.

an interim head has been brought in as well as an interim bo`rd

:01:57.:01:58.

of governors after the orighnal As to why the children were removed?

:01:59.:02:13.

Very little is being made ptblic. I don't want to prejudice an on going

:02:14.:02:17.

investigation. There are cldarly a number of concerns about chhldren's

:02:18.:02:20.

safety. There were no alleg`tions made as far as I'm aware regarding

:02:21.:02:25.

sexual abuse, I know that h`s been a rumour that's been going around I

:02:26.:02:31.

want to Scotch that straightaway. The council says that demand for

:02:32.:02:34.

Coln House has dropped and they will not be able to keep it open. That

:02:35.:02:41.

means the school will be making a crippling loss. By 2018, 2009 we

:02:42.:02:47.

will have to find ?2.5 millhon to deal with the deficit. Unions say

:02:48.:02:53.

they believe the council mishandled the removal of the pupils. Teachers

:02:54.:02:59.

at Coln House are being givdn extra training and others are at

:03:00.:03:03.

placements in other schools. The union accepts that the school won't

:03:04.:03:06.

be able to stay open. Whilst we are saddened by the fact that it will

:03:07.:03:11.

probably mean the loss of another school that's been popular. So the

:03:12.:03:15.

needs of the community well, the case for the lack of financhal

:03:16.:03:19.

viability is quite strong. @nd I think it is fair to say that having

:03:20.:03:23.

talked to members, we're quhte resigned to the fact that the most

:03:24.:03:27.

likely outcome is closure at some point next year.

:03:28.:03:34.

All of the children removed from here in the summer

:03:35.:03:37.

are now at other schools - it now seems increasingly lhkely

:03:38.:03:39.

they'll become the last int`ke pupils to be taught at Coln House.

:03:40.:03:42.

It's emerged that a year seven pupil took a knife to school in Bristol.

:03:43.:03:46.

The item was confiscated from the girl who was seen with it

:03:47.:03:48.

Avon and Somerset Police ard currently holding a knife alnesty.

:03:49.:03:52.

There are secure bins across the area from Patchw`y

:03:53.:03:54.

in South Gloucestershire to Taunton in Somerset.

:03:55.:04:00.

A man wanted in connection with a fraud case in Bath is now

:04:01.:04:03.

Mark Acklom, who is 43, is accused of disappearing

:04:04.:04:11.

with more than three quarters of a million pounds.

:04:12.:04:13.

The money was lent to him by a woman he was in

:04:14.:04:16.

Mr Acklom has now appeared on a list of ten most wanted Britons hn Spain.

:04:17.:04:23.

There's been a fire at Bath's oldest department store.

:04:24.:04:25.

Jolly's on Milsom Street had to be evacuated this afternoon.

:04:26.:04:28.

Smoke could be seen inside the building and emergency

:04:29.:04:30.

crews discovered the fire h`d started in a communal

:04:31.:04:32.

stairwell in a residential part of the building.

:04:33.:04:34.

It was extinguished by the sprinkler system.

:04:35.:04:41.

Supporters of a former Royal Marine from Somerset convicted of lurdering

:04:42.:04:44.

an Afghan insurgent say del`ys in reviewing his case

:04:45.:04:47.

Al Blackman, who held the rank of sergeant,

:04:48.:04:49.

is serving a life sentence for the killing.

:04:50.:04:51.

Those campaigning for his rdlease are planning a rally

:04:52.:04:57.

Our Somerset Correspondent Clinton Rogers has been speaking

:04:58.:05:02.

For the past three Clares Clare Blackman has been campaigning to get

:05:03.:05:23.

her husband out of prison. She was heartened when the Criminal Cases

:05:24.:05:25.

Review Commission decided to take a fresh look at his case, but that was

:05:26.:05:30.

almost a year ago. We were lindful that, you know, it wasn't going to

:05:31.:05:35.

be a quick process and we obviously want them to do a truly thorough job

:05:36.:05:41.

of reviewing the case. We c`n't to have confidence in the decision when

:05:42.:05:46.

they reach it. But that said, you know, this is another ten months

:05:47.:05:53.

that Al is not home and the waiting is the hardest part. In 2013, former

:05:54.:06:00.

sergeant Al Blackman became the first British servicemen to be

:06:01.:06:03.

convicted of murder on the battlefield since the Second World

:06:04.:06:09.

War. His life sentence was for shooting a wounded insurgent in

:06:10.:06:12.

Afghanistan. His action and his words leading up to it were captured

:06:13.:06:20.

by helmetcam ras. His supporters who have verx

:06:21.:06:24.

publicly campaigned for his release, this is the last time they took

:06:25.:06:27.

their protest to the streets of London, say he has been harshly

:06:28.:06:31.

treated for a moment of madness on the battlefield.

:06:32.:06:36.

Among them, the best selling author Frederick Forsyth who is highly

:06:37.:06:38.

critical of the body reviewhng the case. They were given flat

:06:39.:06:46.

instructions that this was to be a level one, meaning immediatd, with

:06:47.:06:51.

total urgency applied to it. Since then both the defending barrister,

:06:52.:06:57.

he is one of the best defending barristers have been bewilddred by

:06:58.:07:00.

the fact that they dawdled `nd dawdled. Very, very slowly passing

:07:01.:07:04.

the documents from desk to desk and saying nothing.

:07:05.:07:08.

Commission says the criticisms are unfair. It is treating the case as a

:07:09.:07:12.

priority. But it is a compldx one with a large volume of written

:07:13.:07:17.

argument to consider. One of the main platforms for an appeal now is

:07:18.:07:21.

that the lesser charge of manslaughter on the grounds of

:07:22.:07:25.

diminished responsibility w`s never considered at the original court

:07:26.:07:30.

marshal. A decision on that, whenever it is, will determhne how

:07:31.:07:35.

much longer the former Royal Marine will spend in Wiltshire's Erlestoke

:07:36.:07:39.

Prison. His wife says the c`mpaign to free him will continue.

:07:40.:07:45.

It's Amanda and Sabet with you this Thursday evenhng.

:07:46.:07:52.

The team that brought us the fabulous Warhorse prdsents

:07:53.:08:00.

a new puppet play with its roots firmly here in the West.

:08:01.:08:03.

Yes, it's a big egg, but what on earth did

:08:04.:08:07.

All will be revealed later in the programme.

:08:08.:08:13.

It's now only a matter of days before America

:08:14.:08:15.

The contest is being followed especially closely

:08:16.:08:21.

This evening a full house is expected for a lecture

:08:22.:08:26.

by North East Somerset MP Jacob Rees Mogg -

:08:27.:08:28.

who once said he would back the Republican candidate,

:08:29.:08:30.

Let's join our political editor Paul Barltrop.

:08:31.:08:38.

Well, people have been having their drinks and they are starting to come

:08:39.:08:47.

in. The lecture starts in a few minutes time. 120 seats in this

:08:48.:08:54.

venue. It sold out very fast indeed. Jacobries mooing is the draw. He is

:08:55.:08:59.

talking about Britain in a post Brexit world building up tr`de with

:09:00.:09:03.

the United States and of cotrse enormous interest in that US

:09:04.:09:08.

Presidential election. Well, Jacob Rhys Mogg ruffled feathers when he

:09:09.:09:13.

said if he was an American he would be voting Republican for drfrp, but

:09:14.:09:17.

he changed his mind and he has been explaining why.

:09:18.:09:21.

In the normal course of events I would vote for the Republhcan

:09:22.:09:24.

candidate who happened to bd Donald Trump.

:09:25.:09:26.

The tape recording that camd out was extremely disagreeable

:09:27.:09:28.

and I would find it not possible to vote for somebody who had said

:09:29.:09:31.

On the other hand I am not a Democrat so I would not bd voting

:09:32.:09:36.

for Mrs Clinton and rather Feebly and uncharacteristically

:09:37.:09:38.

Of course, we've had more allegations today from another woman

:09:39.:09:54.

talking about what Donald Trump may or may not have done. Here with me

:09:55.:09:58.

is the director of the Amerhcan Museum. How much interest do you

:09:59.:10:01.

think there is this side of the Atlantic in what's going on back in

:10:02.:10:04.

America? It used to be the case that people

:10:05.:10:10.

would ask me all the time what's happening at the American Mtseum?

:10:11.:10:14.

How is it faring? For the l`st 4 or 15 months I have only been `sked one

:10:15.:10:18.

question - what do you make of Donald Trump? So there is enormous

:10:19.:10:24.

interest, I think, in the election. Trump himself is a phenomenon.

:10:25.:10:29.

Certainly his ascendancy to the nomination is unprecedented and I

:10:30.:10:32.

think even though Hillary Clinton seems to be drawing ahead at this

:10:33.:10:39.

point, and for many fairly obvious reasons, there still could be

:10:40.:10:42.

surprises in the next three weeks. Briefly for you, as an Amerhcan

:10:43.:10:45.

living over here, what do you think of it all? Well, I think it is

:10:46.:10:53.

fascinating. I think that wdaring my director's hat, I can't say

:10:54.:10:57.

anything, but wearing my own hat, so to speak, I hope that the bdst woman

:10:58.:11:01.

wins! Richard, thank you very much. Of

:11:02.:11:05.

course, 19 days to go. It whll be interesting to see what Jacob Rhys

:11:06.:11:09.

Mogg has to say about the United States and possible next prdsident

:11:10.:11:13.

of it in his speech beginning here in a few minutes time.

:11:14.:11:17.

The Duchess of Cornwall has officially named the area ottside

:11:18.:11:19.

Swindon's railway station after a famous engineer.

:11:20.:11:22.

Sir Daniel Gooch Place celebrates the man who helped Brunel establish

:11:23.:11:25.

His effort and ideas gave bhrth to the Swindon we know todax,

:11:26.:11:32.

but he was responsible for so much more, as our Wiltshire Reporter

:11:33.:11:35.

Arriving on one of the new GWR trains into the railway

:11:36.:11:44.

The Duchess of Cornwall bringing royal approval for the man

:11:45.:11:48.

Her Royal Highness named the square outside the stathon

:11:49.:11:52.

as Sir Daniel Gooch Place.

:11:53.:11:59.

I'm really pleased. It is a great honour to have Her Royal Highness

:12:00.:12:06.

with us today. Swindon is a really important place in the history of

:12:07.:12:11.

Great Western Railway and it is great to celebrate that and

:12:12.:12:14.

particularly celebrate the really important role of Sir Daniel Gooch

:12:15.:12:18.

who isn't someone that the railway talks about as much as we should do.

:12:19.:12:24.

A ceremony, a plaque a royal unveiling, Sir Daniel Gooch must

:12:25.:12:27.

have been important and he was. The father of Swindon's rail works he

:12:28.:12:33.

went on to become chairman of the GWR, an eng engineering and pioneer

:12:34.:12:35.

and for 20 years an MP. Born in 1816, Gooch built

:12:36.:12:38.

locomotives, employing thousands. It was thanks to him

:12:39.:12:41.

the Severn Tunnel was compldted He was known to royalty but also

:12:42.:12:46.

to thousands of ordinary people After unveiling the plaque Camilla

:12:47.:12:53.

was shown extracts from the Gooch exhibition from the nearby

:12:54.:12:58.

Steam Museum, and a specially Daniel Gooch was the person who

:12:59.:13:09.

brought the Great Western R`ilway to Swindon. He was very interested in

:13:10.:13:13.

Swindon and developing it and looking after the workers and the

:13:14.:13:17.

community. He did a lot of benevolent work for the people of

:13:18.:13:20.

Swindon. He was a great, grdat man. He was not a fuddy-duddy engineer,

:13:21.:13:24.

he was an entrepreneur. He was a forward thinking man. He loved

:13:25.:13:26.

engines. In his day Gooch's brilliance

:13:27.:13:28.

was widely recognised, but over time, he faded

:13:29.:13:33.

into Brunel's shadow. Maybe now the memory

:13:34.:13:35.

of one our greatest Victori`ns The Transport Secretary Chrhs

:13:36.:13:37.

Grayling has announced a multi-million pound motorway

:13:38.:13:50.

improvement programme It includes work on the M4

:13:51.:13:53.

at junction 15 for Swindon ?5 million has been earmarkdd

:13:54.:13:59.

for the project and ?750,000 is being committed to improvements

:14:00.:14:04.

at the M5 junction 21 for Wdston. It has been confirmed that Radiohead

:14:05.:14:09.

will headline Glastonbury ndxt year. Rumours that the band would return

:14:10.:14:13.

to Worthy Farm began to circulate yesterday when the Radiohead logo

:14:14.:14:16.

appeared in the grass It's now been made official that

:14:17.:14:20.

they'll top the bill One of English rugby's biggdst

:14:21.:14:25.

rivalries is rekindled tonight It's been seven years since the two

:14:26.:14:33.

clubs met in a competitive fixture. This evening they're

:14:34.:14:40.

playing at The Rec in the European Challenge Cup,

:14:41.:14:42.

and our sports editor This might not have the importance

:14:43.:14:43.

of a Premiership match, but these two clubs have wahted

:14:44.:14:56.

so long to play each other `gain that there's a real appetitd

:14:57.:14:59.

and excitement for the game. Their rivalry goes all the way back

:15:00.:15:10.

to October 1888, 128 years `go and it's Bristol who have enjoyed

:15:11.:15:13.

the more wins - 132 to Bath's 8 . It's almost neck-and-neck

:15:14.:15:19.

here at the Rec Bath 50 wins But of course most of those games

:15:20.:15:22.

came in the amateur era. Since rugby went profession`l Bath

:15:23.:15:30.

have dominated here - This will be a special night

:15:31.:15:33.

for Andy Robinson who played his entire career with Bath,

:15:34.:15:40.

winning derbies and trophies. He still lives in the city too,

:15:41.:15:46.

but these days he's Bristol's At least there shouldn't be too many

:15:47.:15:51.

surprises for him tonight. When the boys walked down

:15:52.:16:00.

from the hotel on Thursday They'll understand what it hs like

:16:01.:16:02.

to play at a fantastic stadhum, but also iconic pitch reallx,

:16:03.:16:06.

you know, to play and I think what we're all looking forw`rd

:16:07.:16:09.

to is how we perform. Well, Markry Gan played for both of

:16:10.:16:23.

the clubs down the years. M`rk, it is great to have the fixturd back on

:16:24.:16:29.

the calendar, isn't? Yes. I played here in March 2009. A great

:16:30.:16:35.

occasion. Andy has spoken about it. Not too serious, but they whll want

:16:36.:16:40.

a huge win the the guys havdn't won here for a long timement thd

:16:41.:16:43.

youngsters will want to put in a good performance. Would a whn mean

:16:44.:16:47.

more to Bristol than Bath tonight? Ah, hugely. We played seven and lost

:16:48.:16:53.

seven. Come to Bath, perforl here as well, a good objective, it hs

:16:54.:16:57.

rekindled old friends and old foes together today. Old rivalrids and

:16:58.:17:02.

leave here on a high and obviously the next objective will be to get a

:17:03.:17:06.

good performance in ten days time and we can rest up and I look

:17:07.:17:09.

forward to the premiership latch. Where the tackles that little bit

:17:10.:17:13.

harder when you played Bath or Bristol whichever side you were on?

:17:14.:17:16.

Yes, they were indeed. They are bigger, faster and stronger now and

:17:17.:17:21.

the guys are physical and there is so many cameras around now ` days,

:17:22.:17:26.

you play the game very fair. Not when I played! Who are you going for

:17:27.:17:30.

tonight? Who is going to win it I think Bristol! You think Brhstol!

:17:31.:17:36.

I'm there or thereabouts on the fence, but I would love to see

:17:37.:17:41.

Bristol perform and play re`lly well go out and perform and put their

:17:42.:17:45.

hands up for selection. Neither side are picking their first chohce team,

:17:46.:17:49.

but Bath have included one of their cult heroes on the bench. It is his

:17:50.:17:53.

final game before going back to Australia. Leroy Houston and they

:17:54.:17:56.

are giving everyone one of these tonight, what do you reckon, an

:17:57.:17:59.

improvement? STUDIO: No, Ali! A sea of Ldroys

:18:00.:18:06.

will be exciting, won't it? The director and puppetry tdam

:18:07.:18:09.

behind the massively successful Warhorse have created a new musical,

:18:10.:18:11.

set in Bristol. It's based on a 19th

:18:12.:18:16.

century Victor Hugo novel. It opens to the public

:18:17.:18:19.

at the Bristol Old Vic tonight. Alice Bouverie's been

:18:20.:18:22.

along to rehearsals. They're saying it's

:18:23.:18:32.

a musical unlike any other. Tragedy, comedy, a love

:18:33.:18:37.

story, even puppets. Whatever is happening internally or

:18:38.:18:50.

whether he is trying to say something. The internal process

:18:51.:18:52.

needs to be bigger. The play reunites Tom Morris,

:18:53.:18:54.

the creative genius behind Warhorse, with two of the puppeteers

:18:55.:18:56.

from the original production. We found a lot of understanding of

:18:57.:19:09.

how to use puppets in Warhorse. Now we are starting with that

:19:10.:19:12.

information and being able to programme it into the show from the

:19:13.:19:14.

beginning. So that's great. All this year, the Bristol Old Vic

:19:15.:19:16.

has been celebrating This musical, one of

:19:17.:19:18.

the flagship productions. This theatre is 250 years old and it

:19:19.:19:29.

is easy to think of it as a historical theatre, but the only

:19:30.:19:32.

reason that it survived for 250 years is because it has alw`ys been

:19:33.:19:37.

looking forward, it has alw`ys been inventing new kinds of theatre and

:19:38.:19:40.

it has always been taking rhsks If we want to honour the history of

:19:41.:19:44.

this place, we have to keep doing it. That's what we love doing and

:19:45.:19:49.

that's what we will be doing with this show.

:19:50.:19:54.

The music was written by two local composers.

:19:55.:19:58.

An imaginary Stokes Croft in Bristol is the setting for the storx.

:19:59.:20:01.

And one of the stars of the show is herself a Bristol girl.

:20:02.:20:07.

I never done anything in Brhstol, performed here before. So to be part

:20:08.:20:14.

of a huge celebration like this is such an honour.

:20:15.:20:20.

And it is nice to represent Bristol and for Bristol to be sort of

:20:21.:20:23.

pioneering and bringing out something new for the rest of the

:20:24.:20:24.

country to see. Everyone hopes this show will make

:20:25.:20:27.

it to the West End. The first British team

:20:28.:20:29.

to circumnavigate the North Pole in a single season has returned

:20:30.:20:37.

to the West. The yacht, Northabout, saildd back

:20:38.:20:43.

into Bristol this morning, The crew including our

:20:44.:20:46.

very own adventurer, David Hempleman-Adams are trying

:20:47.:20:49.

to highlight what's happening A landscape very much on thd change

:20:50.:21:03.

I guess? Yeah, the first tile I went out to the Arctic was in thd 80s and

:21:04.:21:07.

it was very different of thd there was lots of ice. Thick ice `nd lots

:21:08.:21:13.

of volume. Now, we went arotnd the north-east and the north-west

:21:14.:21:15.

passage in one season which is unheard of. It is rather sad that

:21:16.:21:19.

you've come back this quickly? Unbelievable. The north-west passage

:21:20.:21:23.

we did in 14 days. Before that, it would take two or three seasons You

:21:24.:21:27.

didn't know what you would face when you headed out there. What was going

:21:28.:21:33.

through your mind at that point Well, the problem because it would

:21:34.:21:39.

take me four years to get the expedition together and I ndver knew

:21:40.:21:42.

if it was achievable. So I wasn t sure if this boat would be stuck

:21:43.:21:49.

somewhere and over winter lhke the other teams that had tried. So at

:21:50.:21:53.

back of my mind I was thinkhng, "How far will we get?" Once we got to

:21:54.:21:58.

half-way around the north-e`st passage, then all the ice wdnt and

:21:59.:22:03.

we had a really quick trip `round. Seeing that, and realising what that

:22:04.:22:08.

meant... It was shocking. H`lfs it like? Shocking. The north-wdst

:22:09.:22:15.

passage, there wasn't one bht of ice not enough ice for a gin and tonic.

:22:16.:22:20.

It is extraordinary and it hs scary as well. It will impact on ts

:22:21.:22:25.

eventually and we just seem to hide from it.

:22:26.:22:30.

You can hide from it, but the consequences are going to bd really

:22:31.:22:36.

terrible, isn't it? Absolutdly. Things are changing so quickly. In

:22:37.:22:41.

my lifetime to see so much change. Is there any way back? The

:22:42.:22:45.

scientists say there is a thpping point and in 20 years time, there

:22:46.:22:51.

won't be any ice at all the North Pole during the summer and ht will

:22:52.:22:54.

have dire con qens of coursd. What do you want to achieve from here? It

:22:55.:22:59.

is a very visual thing. It hs a huge achievement for you guys to have

:23:00.:23:04.

done this. And obviously, everybody has been watching you. What would

:23:05.:23:08.

you like to happen next? Thd only reason I actually did it, it was

:23:09.:23:12.

nice to do the adventure, btt the main thing was awareness. Wd set-up

:23:13.:23:18.

a charity called Wicked Weather Watch, this is for youngsters, they

:23:19.:23:22.

can log on and find out mord about it. It is about the science and

:23:23.:23:26.

actually see what is happenhng. We are going to keep the boat hn

:23:27.:23:31.

Bristol and put on an exhibhtion so schoolchildren or schools c`n come

:23:32.:23:35.

down and visit and they can make up their own mind because my

:23:36.:23:39.

generation, we've messed it up and unfortunately, these youngsters have

:23:40.:23:43.

inherited it. One of the advantages of your crew, I remember, when you

:23:44.:23:47.

set off, you have a very yotng crew member as well, Ben? Yeah. How did

:23:48.:23:53.

he get on? Well, Ben started off in Bristol. Went around the whole route

:23:54.:23:57.

and this poor lad, he had to put up with some grumpy old men! Hd's 4?

:23:58.:24:02.

14. He went out a boy and c`me back a young man. He was an extr`ordinary

:24:03.:24:07.

to put up with it. But I thought it was very important rather than me

:24:08.:24:10.

sort of banging on, I thought it was important that his peer grotp, his

:24:11.:24:14.

age grourngs he blogged on `ldaily basis so he could put his vhews

:24:15.:24:19.

across to that generation which was very important.

:24:20.:24:23.

David, it has been amazing to talk about this subject. Stay with us,

:24:24.:24:27.

because you have seen extrory things in your life, but I want yot to take

:24:28.:24:29.

a look at this! A little earlier we showed

:24:30.:24:32.

you pictures of a very big dgg. It was laid on New Macdonalds Farm

:24:33.:24:35.

in Box in Wiltshire. But take a look at what happened

:24:36.:24:39.

when they cracked it. Yes, inside there was,

:24:40.:24:43.

in fact, another egg Have you seen anything like that? I

:24:44.:24:53.

have seen a few things, but never saw that. How did that happdn?

:24:54.:24:58.

Apparently it is not completely tun heard of and we have had messages

:24:59.:25:05.

from people on Facebook who have had an egg within an egg. Hello both.

:25:06.:25:18.

Just returning to what David was saying about the sea ice, this is

:25:19.:25:22.

something we keep a close on at this time of year in terms of looking

:25:23.:25:25.

towards the seasonal forecast into winter. It may seem

:25:26.:25:30.

counter-intuitive, but we know through research when we get

:25:31.:25:35.

exceptionally low amounts of sea ice this actually can have an effect as

:25:36.:25:42.

we look into the winter in loading the dice in a colder winter for our

:25:43.:25:49.

neck of the woods. At the moment we have low sea ice in that arda. It is

:25:50.:25:55.

one that we are keeping abrdast of. We will keep you updated on the

:25:56.:25:58.

winter thoughts as we get into November. Let's talk about something

:25:59.:26:02.

chilly closer to the current time because it will be a cold nhght We

:26:03.:26:05.

will be under a ridge of high pressure. That means that there is

:26:06.:26:09.

the risk of fog around as wdll. But once we clear that out of the way

:26:10.:26:12.

tomorrow, we should be in for a pleasant enough day. Varying amounts

:26:13.:26:15.

of cloud and sunshine and lhght winds and dry. A wider look at

:26:16.:26:20.

things shows the access of the ridge of high pressure across the top of

:26:21.:26:25.

us, hence a greater risk colpared to recent nights of frost and fog and

:26:26.:26:29.

as we run through into tomorrow we continue with this benign p`ttern

:26:30.:26:34.

and it will be set as we he`d into the weekend turning breezy `nd more

:26:35.:26:37.

particularly so as we get through into Sunday. There had been showers

:26:38.:26:42.

running in from the north. The forecast model deficient on those.

:26:43.:26:45.

We could catch a few of those into Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. But a

:26:46.:26:48.

temporary phase. Through tonight, a good deal of clear sky around.

:26:49.:26:53.

Decent for those of you watching for the meteor shower. But also decent

:26:54.:26:58.

conditions to get some fog forming and some of those could be dense

:26:59.:27:01.

patches where we get them and equally some parts of the

:27:02.:27:05.

countryside could see frost unsuppliesingly with air

:27:06.:27:07.

temperatures as low as two or three Celsius for some. Now I would

:27:08.:27:11.

caution where we have patchds of fog, this isn't just for thd West

:27:12.:27:16.

Country, it could be further on your travels, it could take to mhd-or

:27:17.:27:21.

late morning. But once that process is complete, all of us seeing a

:27:22.:27:25.

decent day and varying amounts of sunshine, light winds, not dxpecting

:27:26.:27:28.

any showers through the course of tomorrow. Temperatures in a range of

:27:29.:27:33.

11 to 13 Celsius. Saturday looking dry. Varying amounts of clotd. The

:27:34.:27:37.

breeze picking up towards the end of the day. There we go. Thank you

:27:38.:27:41.

Ian. This is where we say goodbyd. You're

:27:42.:27:47.

back later. Yes, I'm back in the Ten O'Clock News. Until then, goodbye.

:27:48.:27:48.
