Good evening. so it's goodbye from me

:00:12.:00:14.

A head teacher in Wiltshire is warning that his school is one

:00:15.:00:17.

of hundreds in the West that are losing out under changes

:00:18.:00:19.

Class sizes will be increasing. Parents will see older textbooks and

:00:20.:00:28.

fewer resources and some things never used to do, we won't be able

:00:29.:00:37.

to. We will see the benefits from funding plans and who is losing out.

:00:38.:00:43.

The Wiltshire couple murdered in the gun attack

:00:44.:00:48.

An inquest hears about their final moments.

:00:49.:00:53.

Carol Vorderman targets Number 10 in her campaign to win a knighthood

:00:54.:00:56.

And we look back at the village which kept its own

:00:57.:01:01.

A head teacher in Wiltshire is warning that his school is one

:01:02.:01:15.

of hundreds in the West that are losing out under changes

:01:16.:01:18.

Tim Gilson from Marlborough School in Wiltshire says

:01:19.:01:20.

But whilst some school are suffering under the changes,

:01:21.:01:25.

Our political editor Paul Barltrop reports from Wiltshire.

:01:26.:01:34.

After years of pleading for help, schools across the West hoped last

:01:35.:01:37.

month's announcement would be the help they needed.

:01:38.:01:42.

But after looking in detail at the figures, many

:01:43.:01:44.

For while overall nearly 900 schools across the region

:01:45.:01:48.

will get more funding, 340 will get no increase.

:01:49.:01:51.

In fact, most will be worse off, including this one.

:01:52.:01:59.

This school is officially outstanding. Raised by step, pop

:02:00.:02:04.

Europeans and facing a financial hit that has bunting ahead to go public.

:02:05.:02:11.

-- that is prompting. It is important everyone understands they

:02:12.:02:14.

will be locations. I have to say to parents that they will see class

:02:15.:02:18.

sizes increasing, older textbooks, they will see fewer resources and

:02:19.:02:23.

some things we used to do, we won't be able to do the same. Today,

:02:24.:02:27.

parents suggested the letter from the school warning of cuts. The

:02:28.:02:31.

Government's claim that an unfair funding system is being fixed rings

:02:32.:02:34.

hollow. We are in the bottom of their 10% in

:02:35.:02:40.

the country for funding. It seems incomprehensible. If something

:02:41.:02:46.

should not be cut, it is education, especially a school like this, which

:02:47.:02:49.

is doing very well. Teachers, especially at the school,

:02:50.:02:53.

are so dedicated and passionate. I just think it is a real shame that

:02:54.:02:58.

what they do is going to be compromised. Healing about maths

:02:59.:03:00.

teaching at the Gloucester primary school, the shadowy Education

:03:01.:03:06.

Secretary. Teachers here and everywhere feel that the Government

:03:07.:03:15.

has got its sums wrong. They are trying to hoodwinker parents.

:03:16.:03:17.

Parents are not stupid. They concede and sells schools have the moment.

:03:18.:03:21.

The school here today are concerned that if they have more money cut

:03:22.:03:25.

from their budget, it will impact on staffing levels and the ability to

:03:26.:03:29.

provide some great resources that are seen in the school at the

:03:30.:03:32.

moment. Hoping to taste success, the Schools Minister. Each the secondary

:03:33.:03:39.

school in Swindon, a bowler his skills will on average gain. But he

:03:40.:03:43.

says the Government simply does not have the money to give more

:03:44.:03:49.

everywhere. After every national formula change some will win and

:03:50.:03:53.

some will lose. We have capped any losing school to 1.5% per year, 3%

:03:54.:03:58.

in total. It is a fairer system that reflects more accurately the needs

:03:59.:04:01.

of schools. The Government is standing firm. Despite the

:04:02.:04:05.

controversy, the changes will be in by 2020.

:04:06.:04:08.

Well, as you heard there, it's a mixed picture.

:04:09.:04:11.

Some schools will get more from the new way

:04:12.:04:14.

in which the funding will be calculated, but others fear

:04:15.:04:16.

they'll lose out and have to make serious cuts.

:04:17.:04:22.

Overall in Wiltshire, they'll be just over

:04:23.:04:27.

?6 million a year better off, although as Paul explained,

:04:28.:04:29.

that won't mean more money for every school.

:04:30.:04:33.

It's the same picture in Swindon, where in general, schools will be

:04:34.:04:36.

more than ?3.5 million better off, although the local council is clear

:04:37.:04:39.

that there'll be winners and losers there too.

:04:40.:04:43.

13 of its primary schools will get less money.

:04:44.:04:47.

South Gloucestershire schools are getting a similar

:04:48.:04:48.

Somerset looks to gain the most overall with ?13 million more

:04:49.:04:58.

available, with secondary schools there on average getting

:04:59.:05:00.

In Dorset, the budget's going up overall by ?4.5 million,

:05:01.:05:03.

but the council's told us that there, 15 primaries

:05:04.:05:05.

and two secondaries will see their budgets cut.

:05:06.:05:07.

In Gloucestershire, the overall budget is up

:05:08.:05:16.

However, it's a very different outlook in Bristol.

:05:17.:05:21.

There, the council says it expects its schools to be

:05:22.:05:23.

about ?2 million worse off - with primary schools losing

:05:24.:05:26.

Just looking at that list, it seems every area apart from Bristol has

:05:27.:05:42.

more money. Yes, because broadly more money is

:05:43.:05:45.

going into education. This new formula was meant to correct some of

:05:46.:05:50.

the unfair aspects of the old formula, which had long been

:05:51.:05:53.

complained about. But if you look at the bigger picture, what we have the

:05:54.:05:56.

moment is more children going into schools, going through schools.

:05:57.:06:01.

Schools frankly after do more work. And we have rising costs. The pay of

:06:02.:06:05.

teachers going up, pension contributions going up. The

:06:06.:06:08.

apprenticeship levy going up for schools as well. The national living

:06:09.:06:13.

wage coming in as well. School say that overall, a lot of things they

:06:14.:06:16.

routinely do cost them more. Even those with a bit more money might

:06:17.:06:20.

not feel better. In one of the skills you went to today, it was

:06:21.:06:25.

built under the Private Finance Initiative. The cost fixed and they

:06:26.:06:31.

cannot spend less, for example, on maintenance. You have his contract

:06:32.:06:36.

and get nice new buildings but they are maintained and serviced and so

:06:37.:06:40.

on. For instance, you cannot save a bit of money by not painting your

:06:41.:06:45.

conscience or cleaning as much. Where can you save money but you

:06:46.:06:48.

might things like teachers and textbooks, and that has an impact.

:06:49.:06:53.

Schools in Swindon are under huge pressure to improve standards. How

:06:54.:06:59.

can a manager with their settlement? Swindon did see something of a rise

:07:00.:07:04.

but even then, a mixed picture. Some of the schools, I think 16 and total

:07:05.:07:12.

will either have the same money or less than before. One of the reasons

:07:13.:07:16.

the minister Wenger today is because of step, the inspectors, had been so

:07:17.:07:21.

critical of the schools there a few weeks back. Local MPs are unhappy.

:07:22.:07:26.

Schools are unhappy. The minister came in today. He was unapologetic

:07:27.:07:30.

but he did say that standards were starting to rise in Swindon and he

:07:31.:07:33.

was encouraged by what he saw today. Briefly, Bristol has seen his budget

:07:34.:07:39.

going down. Yes, urban schools generally getting less money.

:07:40.:07:43.

Bristol was not one of the biggest funded and it is not one of the

:07:44.:07:45.

biggest losers. An inquest into the deaths

:07:46.:07:48.

of a Wiltshire couple who died in an attack on a Tunisian beach

:07:49.:07:50.

resort has been told Eileen Swannack and her partner

:07:51.:07:53.

John Welch were among 38 people killed when an Islamist gunman

:07:54.:07:58.

targeted Sousse in June 2015. Our Wiltshire reporter Will Glennon

:07:59.:08:03.

was at today's inquest Here today at the Tunisia inquest at

:08:04.:08:14.

the Royal Courts of Justice, the court heard about John Welch and

:08:15.:08:19.

Eileen Swannack from Welch. John was 74 and Eileen was 73. They were on

:08:20.:08:27.

holiday together and where on the beach outside their hotel in Sousse

:08:28.:08:38.

on June 26 2015. A gunman went on the rampage, killing 30 people,

:08:39.:08:45.

including 30 from the UK. -- 38 people, including 30. This computer

:08:46.:08:53.

animation shows how the gunman left the hotel grounds, turned to his

:08:54.:08:57.

right and shot Eileen and John. Sergeant Paul Griffiths was part of

:08:58.:09:00.

the British police team that try to reconstruct what happened. Because

:09:01.:09:06.

there were no British suspects, there has been no criminal

:09:07.:09:10.

investigation. Today, Sergeant Griffiths confirmed that John was

:09:11.:09:13.

found dead on the beach. He had been shot in the neck and chest. Eileen

:09:14.:09:21.

had also been shot dead. Moving portraits were painted of John and

:09:22.:09:24.

Eileen. She has been described as full of energy, with a lust for

:09:25.:09:28.

life. She loved Tunisia and this resort in particular. She was a

:09:29.:09:34.

great-grandmother but had a real sense of fun and enjoyed

:09:35.:09:37.

socialising. Scores of people turned out for her funeral in the village

:09:38.:09:45.

of Biddestone in Wiltshire. John was also a great grandparent and a keen

:09:46.:09:50.

sportsman. He was a healthy man who, it was said, had years of life left.

:09:51.:09:56.

He was kind, caring, generous. He knew many people in the local area

:09:57.:10:02.

and is greatly missed. The inquest will continue into next month as it

:10:03.:10:05.

tries to establish exactly what happened in Tunisia. Whether proper

:10:06.:10:13.

travel advice had been given to people beforehand and whether the

:10:14.:10:15.

Government did actually believe that there was any risk of such an attack

:10:16.:10:17.

taking place. Just before we move on, a quick

:10:18.:10:30.

correction to our top story. We mentioned Marlborough School, but

:10:31.:10:36.

that was incorrect. That was my mistake.

:10:37.:10:39.

The family of a 24-year-old who's been missing for almost two weeks

:10:40.:10:42.

say they just want him to get in touch.

:10:43.:10:46.

Deakon Wilkins, from Worle, disappeared on the 14th

:10:47.:10:47.

of January after leaving a nightclub in Bristol.

:10:48.:10:49.

The search for him continued today, as Andrew Plant reports.

:10:50.:10:52.

We are outside Motion nightclub here in Bristol.

:10:53.:10:57.

That is the car park where, right now, police are meeting

:10:58.:10:59.

What they are doing is organising what they are calling a more

:11:00.:11:04.

thorough search of the local area to try to figure out what happened

:11:05.:11:07.

to Deakon after he left the club here in the small hours 12 days ago.

:11:08.:11:11.

But at exactly the same time, if you look through this hole

:11:12.:11:14.

in the wall, you will see police teams over there using divers

:11:15.:11:16.

to search the water, which is just a few metres away

:11:17.:11:19.

Deakon vanished after leaving the nightclub at 4.30am

:11:20.:11:23.

His family and friends have spent 12 days desperate for news.

:11:24.:11:31.

We have got 20, 30 people coming up today.

:11:32.:11:34.

People we don't even know coming to help out,

:11:35.:11:44.

through social media, to help try and find him

:11:45.:11:47.

Today, they walked different routes he could have taken.

:11:48.:11:51.

Miriam taking a week off university to help search the streets

:11:52.:11:56.

Any kind of sign, just to get it out there so people know that

:11:57.:12:01.

And if they know anything, to get in contact with us

:12:02.:12:04.

Today, Deakon's family and friends searched along pathways and nearby

:12:05.:12:11.

parks and handed out leaflets to the public, hoping someone

:12:12.:12:14.

Meanwhile, police continued to search the water nearby

:12:15.:12:17.

as the mystery of Deakon's disappearance goes on.

:12:18.:12:24.

Alex and David with you, thanks for joining us.

:12:25.:12:35.

Carol Vorderman leads campaigners to Downing Street demanding

:12:36.:12:40.

a knighthood for the last British Dambuster,

:12:41.:12:42.

Looking back 100 years to when a Gloucestershire village

:12:43.:12:48.

That is still to come. First, an update for you.

:12:49.:13:03.

Two University of Bristol students who've suffered racist abuse

:13:04.:13:06.

on social media have today made an official complaint

:13:07.:13:08.

Timi Ariyo and Tami Sotire handed over a file of evidence showing how

:13:09.:13:16.

they've been targeted in offensive messages and a video

:13:17.:13:18.

by a group of young men, including another student

:13:19.:13:20.

They said they were pleased with how the meeting went.

:13:21.:13:29.

Following the statement they made on the BBC the other day, I didn't

:13:30.:13:32.

But the university is showing a lot of support and I think some good

:13:33.:13:37.

We are looking to start disciplinary procedures quickly,

:13:38.:13:41.

with the individual who is one of our students.

:13:42.:13:43.

And we're also looking to work with other universities for other

:13:44.:13:46.

The University of Bristol also says it's also looking at ways to make it

:13:47.:13:54.

easier for students who are dealing with such abuse to come forward.

:13:55.:13:57.

A secondary school in the Forest of Dean has shut its doors

:13:58.:14:00.

until Monday because more than 150 students and staff are unwell.

:14:01.:14:03.

In a letter to parents, the head of Dene Magna

:14:04.:14:06.

says they are suffering from a sickness bug.

:14:07.:14:08.

Professional cleaners are being brought in to sterilise the school.

:14:09.:14:15.

The National Trust says it won't support plans for a park

:14:16.:14:17.

The preferred location for the scheme, at Bathampton Meadows,

:14:18.:14:26.

was approved by councillors last night, despite

:14:27.:14:28.

The National Trust says it believes it will scar

:14:29.:14:31.

Carol Vorderman and the Gulf War veteran John Nichol have taken

:14:32.:14:41.

a petition to Downing Street to try again to get a knighthood

:14:42.:14:44.

for the last surviving British Dambuster.

:14:45.:14:50.

George "Johnny" Johnson, from Bristol, who's 95,

:14:51.:14:52.

which became famous for destroying some of Germany's dams

:14:53.:14:55.

Johnny Johnson was one of 125,000 men who served under

:14:56.:15:02.

None of them ever received even a campaign medal.

:15:03.:15:10.

Then Johnny was snubbed in the New Year's Honours List.

:15:11.:15:12.

If those other people deserve their awards, that's fine,

:15:13.:15:15.

Today, Carol Vorderman and former Gulf War veteran

:15:16.:15:19.

John Nichol marched on Downing Street -

:15:20.:15:20.

with a brief stop outside Buckingham Palace -

:15:21.:15:22.

to deliver a petition to knight Britain's last surviving Dambuster.

:15:23.:15:25.

This is overnight. Overnight, yeah.

:15:26.:15:28.

100 since we have walked from the park.

:15:29.:15:35.

Tell me about your personal involvement with

:15:36.:15:37.

He is representative of every single one

:15:38.:15:45.

of those young men of Bomber Command.

:15:46.:15:46.

People forget the level of the sacrifice.

:15:47.:15:49.

If you served in Bomber Command, there was almost a

:15:50.:15:51.

50-50 chance that you would die during the war.

:15:52.:15:53.

Half of the Royal Air Force has been killed.

:15:54.:15:57.

Half of an army regiment has been killed.

:15:58.:16:04.

Those figures now would bring down a government.

:16:05.:16:07.

It would bring down a government if that

:16:08.:16:09.

Back then, it was a simple fact of life.

:16:10.:16:13.

After the war, the men of Bomber Command were held at arm's

:16:14.:16:16.

There had been massive loss of life when they

:16:17.:16:19.

But in the last three weeks, over a quarter of

:16:20.:16:25.

a million people have signed a petition to recognise

:16:26.:16:27.

Johnny Johnson and, by extension, all his comrades.

:16:28.:16:29.

Johnny is pleased and the veterans

:16:30.:16:31.

and their families are pleased that

:16:32.:16:32.

attention has been given to them once again.

:16:33.:16:34.

And I think it shows the depth of respect that we have both

:16:35.:16:38.

for Johnny Johnson as an individual, but

:16:39.:16:51.

also for who he fought with, and those he says that,

:16:52.:16:53.

if he were offered a knighthood, he would accept on behalf of.

:16:54.:16:56.

And those are the 55,573 men who died as a

:16:57.:16:59.

One of the surprising things about today is

:17:00.:17:02.

There is no march, it is just Carol

:17:03.:17:05.

Yet this story has captured the imaginations of news

:17:06.:17:08.

If public opinion carries any weight, Carol

:17:09.:17:13.

hopes Johnny's name will be on the next Honours List in June.

:17:14.:17:20.

A new report says the Bristol and Bath area is now leading

:17:21.:17:27.

the country with their booming economy and seeing

:17:28.:17:29.

That same report warns that many aren't feeling the benefits,

:17:30.:17:40.

because there's also been a sharp increase in the cost of house prices

:17:41.:17:43.

Robin Markwell is in Bristol for us this evening.

:17:44.:17:51.

I am at the launch of this new report by the Resolution Foundation

:17:52.:17:57.

here. The panel includes a Mayor of Bristol, just about to discuss the

:17:58.:18:02.

findings. The news contained inside is bittersweet. Like London, the

:18:03.:18:05.

economy in Bristol is doing very well indeed. Also like London,

:18:06.:18:09.

Bristol is becoming a place where Bristolians cannot afford to live.

:18:10.:18:14.

They will uses event tonight to Colin and new politicians here -- to

:18:15.:18:22.

call on the new partition being elected here in May, the metro

:18:23.:18:26.

Mayor, to do more. It's up, up and away

:18:27.:18:29.

for Bristol's booming economy. Other cities still lag below

:18:30.:18:33.

where they were before the financial crash but a report out today shows

:18:34.:18:35.

Bristol soaring above them all. Only London has outpaced it in terms

:18:36.:18:45.

of economic growth. From a living standards perspective, the

:18:46.:18:47.

employment rate has kept rising and it is the highest in the country.

:18:48.:18:51.

While the economy hots up, the housing market

:18:52.:18:53.

For estate agents in the city, they've never had it so good.

:18:54.:19:02.

We've seen an increase in prices of 10%,

:19:03.:19:10.

New figures show the cost of renting across Bristol and Bath has soared -

:19:11.:19:23.

up an average of ?100 a month in the last five years.

:19:24.:19:26.

Rising house prices also means it's harder for young people

:19:27.:19:28.

In 2001 around seven in ten of 25 to 39 year olds

:19:29.:19:34.

owned their own home here in the West.

:19:35.:19:36.

Last year that figure had fallen to just over half.

:19:37.:19:40.

For Angie Palmer - who lives in Bristol's Bedminster area -

:19:41.:19:43.

This is the dining room. The kitchen is out there. Two-bedroom terrace

:19:44.:19:51.

and it is 920 5p per month in rent. Leg-mac that is a lot. -- ?920 per

:19:52.:19:59.

month in rent. She works as a graphic-designer

:20:00.:20:02.

but it's still not enough to cover Demand for properties on her street

:20:03.:20:05.

was so intense she took this place I have a good job, get my wage is

:20:06.:20:15.

less than my rent. It is baffling but that is the situation and I am

:20:16.:20:19.

not the only one in this situation. I live off tax credits. It is not

:20:20.:20:24.

ideal and it is difficult. But it is how it is.

:20:25.:20:28.

Politicians are all too aware of the scale of Bristol's housing

:20:29.:20:35.

shortage and the new metro mayor elected this May is being urged

:20:36.:20:38.

Without enough affordable housing in the city,

:20:39.:20:41.

Bristol's economic successes could be short-lived.

:20:42.:20:46.

Earlier, we were talking about the sacrifices of the previous

:20:47.:20:54.

generation. Johnny Johnson and Bomber Command.

:20:55.:20:59.

But the experiences of young men joining the army

:21:00.:21:01.

made into a performance at the Bristol Old Vic.

:21:02.:21:05.

Their stories were collected by poet Owen Sheers,

:21:06.:21:07.

whose book was so moving that it was made into a radio play.

:21:08.:21:10.

The drama tells the story of three young men from Bristol.

:21:11.:21:14.

It is the story of their service but the story of their

:21:15.:21:17.

It is about the aftermath of conflict, and really

:21:18.:21:20.

How those concentric circles of damage can spread

:21:21.:21:23.

from the individuals, through families,

:21:24.:21:24.

The story looks at the physical and mental scars of war,

:21:25.:21:31.

and the film rights for it have just been bought up.

:21:32.:21:36.

The spacecraft which took Tim Peake to the International space station

:21:37.:21:39.

and back has gone on display at London's Science Museum.

:21:40.:21:44.

The Soyuz capsule, complete with scorch marks from re-entering

:21:45.:21:47.

Earth's atmosphere, was unveiled by the man himself.

:21:48.:21:52.

The Wiltshire astronaut, who wants return to the space station soon,

:21:53.:21:56.

said he hoped the display would inspire the public.

:21:57.:22:00.

As he does. Gosh! That capsule would really

:22:01.:22:10.

primitive, doesn't it? -- looks really primitive.

:22:11.:22:12.

The extraordinary story of a Gloucestershire community

:22:13.:22:14.

and its resident gorilla has been brought back to life in a new book.

:22:15.:22:17.

The village archivist in Uley stumbled across pictures

:22:18.:22:20.

of the gorilla, called John Daniel, which had been kept since the 1900s.

:22:21.:22:23.

The gorilla, called John Daniel, or Johnny to his friends, became a

:22:24.:22:37.

member of the village of Uley in the early 1900. He was bought from a

:22:38.:22:40.

department store in London as a gift to Alice Cunningham who lived in the

:22:41.:22:43.

village. She treated him like a human child. He had free reign. He

:22:44.:22:48.

just loved the children. They loved him as well. His bet a lot of time

:22:49.:22:55.

with the children. Also, he used to sit in the village green outside the

:22:56.:22:58.

pub, hoping the folk would come out and give him a glass of cider. He

:22:59.:23:03.

adored cider. He was a bit of a drinker? He was! In 1989, the BBC

:23:04.:23:10.

made a documentary about him, complete with re-enactments and

:23:11.:23:15.

memories. We treated him like he was one of us. The other difference was,

:23:16.:23:19.

she was a gorilla and we were humans. When he lost his temper...

:23:20.:23:27.

He would stomp is -- thump his hands. He would take your hand and

:23:28.:23:34.

go to school with you. The teacher gave him a still to sit on and he

:23:35.:23:40.

would sit with someone one day and another person the next. John Daniel

:23:41.:23:47.

played with the children on this clean. But having cider at the local

:23:48.:23:55.

pub was shot left. -- shoplift. He was sold to America. She thought he

:23:56.:24:02.

would be for a home in America but she was diseased. He was going to a

:24:03.:24:08.

circus. Bannerman Bailey's Circus. He just didn't cope with that at all

:24:09.:24:16.

after life he had in Uley. Alice was ardently sent for in a new life in

:24:17.:24:22.

America, but the guerrilla guide before she could reach. It was said

:24:23.:24:25.

he died of a broken heart. The story is being told again thanks to

:24:26.:24:30.

Margaret. We were lucky to have him and it is that the village on the

:24:31.:24:32.

map again, hasn't it? Is that for real? It is so sad. I am

:24:33.:24:41.

sad now. Who died of a broken heart? The

:24:42.:24:45.

gorilla. Yes, died of a broken heart. I think

:24:46.:24:52.

we should move on. I know... We will look at the weather for a pick-up. I

:24:53.:24:58.

have to lift everyone's spirits now? Something much better in terms of

:24:59.:25:02.

the weather story. Change on the way. I have heard words like roll

:25:03.:25:12.

and bitter. -- raw. Some sunshine came through but with the winds, it

:25:13.:25:20.

has felt very raw indeed. Change coming in the way of the stripe of

:25:21.:25:23.

cloud to the West. And what is behind that as well. We will lose a

:25:24.:25:27.

dominating high pressure that has been with us for the past few days

:25:28.:25:30.

and see whether systems shifting in from the south and West. That starts

:25:31.:25:35.

tomorrow afternoon. It is a slow process but eventually in the coming

:25:36.:25:39.

days things are becoming that bit more unsettled. And with it, as you

:25:40.:25:42.

might expect from the south-west, something a bit milder. There will

:25:43.:25:47.

be spells of rain at times and that will continue to be quite breezy.

:25:48.:25:51.

That change does not start until tomorrow afternoon. So, tonight,

:25:52.:25:54.

we're looking at a pretty settled night of weather. You can see,

:25:55.:25:58.

though, because we have blues to the north and east, already we are

:25:59.:26:03.

starting to see something that little bit less cold nudging in from

:26:04.:26:07.

the south and West. There is a bit of a spread in temperatures. We're

:26:08.:26:11.

all quite close to freezing but probably, Gloucester and Wiltshire,

:26:12.:26:15.

yes, subzero temperatures overnight, whereas just like the above towards

:26:16.:26:19.

the south and West. Might see a flurry of snow but it is generally

:26:20.:26:23.

dry. Might have some bargain and first thing tomorrow, though. A dry

:26:24.:26:28.

start, brightness and fast. In the afternoon, that rain band suites in

:26:29.:26:33.

from the South West and that will bring us the change. Temperatures

:26:34.:26:38.

around three or four Celsius but as he got through tomorrow evening,

:26:39.:26:40.

temperatures continue to lift. Up to 78 Celsius. That rain pushes on with

:26:41.:26:47.

the milder air. -- seven or eight Celsius. For Saturday's cell, a

:26:48.:26:55.

little dry weather around. You could pick up a shower. If you do, it is

:26:56.:27:00.

more likely towards Gloucestershire. If we are trying to be clever about

:27:01.:27:05.

it, the Bristol Channel. Temperatures knocking on the door of

:27:06.:27:08.

double figures. I think we will see those double-figure is eventually on

:27:09.:27:12.

Sunday, although eventually this low pressure brings more rain. You can

:27:13.:27:15.

see frontal systems in from the south and West as we go through the

:27:16.:27:18.

second after the weekend into next week. We can see the impact on the

:27:19.:27:22.

temperatures here, back to double figures.

:27:23.:27:25.

Good news. It has been boning freezing. A little bit more good

:27:26.:27:34.

news. -- blooming freezing. George this one, who was said with

:27:35.:27:37.

crossbows in the head, is now standing up, drinking on his own and

:27:38.:27:47.

a bit better. The fund for his treatment is now ?5,000. --
