Welcome to BBC Points West with Alex Lovell and David Garmston.

Gloucestershire police plan to put some prisoners in hoods to stop them

:00:13.:00:16.

If you are out doing your job to protect the public and somebody spat

:00:17.:00:28.

on you, how would you feel, then you have many months going through tests

:00:29.:00:32.

to see whether or not there is a potential for disease.

:00:33.:00:34.

Critics say the hoods are degrading and over the top.

:00:35.:00:35.

Our other headlines tonight:

:00:36.:00:42.

The conmen who took people's rubbish and then dumped it in a field.

:00:43.:00:48.

Friday night is take-away night but now there's a campaign

:00:49.:00:51.

People come from far afield to admire the Georgian architecture of

:00:52.:00:59.

Bath. And the jewel in the Crown -

:01:00.:01:01.

it's the 250th anniversary Police in Gloucestershire

:01:02.:01:04.

are expected to start using controversial hoods on some

:01:05.:01:13.

offenders - to stop them It would be the first time a force

in our region has tried Those in favour believe it protects

staff and stops them But critics say it's

cruel and degrading. I led him down to the cell

:01:27.:01:29.

and as I was closing the door he hopped and spat right in my eye

:01:30.:01:45.

from, oh, three feet away. Caught on CCTV, a known

drug user spitting at The sergeant, who doesn't

hospital the advice was: "Yes, I've got a three-month-old

:02:04.:02:09.

and a two-year-old." You need to avoid unprotected

:02:10.:02:17.

sex with your wife." It wasn't the best time between us,

:02:18.:02:21.

purely because of this. Then the gravity of what had

happened and the possible Last year, this Ukrainian police

woman died after being spat at by a suspect

:02:29.:02:36.

who had tuberculosis. A third of police forces in the UK

:02:37.:02:38.

already use spit hoods, But now the Gloucestershire Police

:02:39.:02:42.

Federation has voted to try them out It's likely the spit hood would be

:02:43.:02:49.

wrapped up and placed somewhere on the custody officer's uniform,

:02:50.:03:00.

then, if someone spits at them or threatens to split,

:03:01.:03:03.

it can be quickly unwrapped and then Our region's other police forces

:03:04.:03:05.

say they have no plans Dorset Police and Crime

:03:06.:03:11.

Commissioner, who was spat at himself whilst serving

:03:12.:03:16.

as a police officer, has written to the Home Secretary,

:03:17.:03:18.

to ask for an urgent review into the use of spit hoods

:03:19.:03:21.

by police in Britain. Europe and Northern Ireland

:03:22.:03:25.

don't use spit guards. As soon as you start restraining

:03:26.:03:37.

people around the head, accidents happen and people can get

:03:38.:03:39.

seriously injured Gloucestershire police say spit

:03:40.:03:41.

hoods will only be placed A spit guard can only be used

:03:42.:03:44.

if an officer has already been spat at or if the person is actually

:03:45.:03:52.

spitting, so there is an imminent danger that that officer or member

:03:53.:03:56.

of staff or member of the public is going to be

:03:57.:03:59.

assaulted by that spit. Even so, human right groups have

:04:00.:04:01.

criticised the use of spit hoods with Liberty describing them

:04:02.:04:04.

as "Cruel and degrading items that A big clear-up operation

:04:05.:04:06.

is underway in Bristol - after a group of travellers

:04:07.:04:20.

collected people's rubbish, Fridges, sofas and mattresses

:04:21.:04:22.

were all left behind in Stockwood. The council's now looking at ways

:04:23.:04:33.

to protect the site in future. Yesterday the council came

:04:34.:04:36.

and started the clear-up operation. There were all sorts

:04:37.:04:40.

of household furniture items - chairs, tables, several

:04:41.:04:45.

baths, a couple of sofas. And not just sofas but

:04:46.:04:52.

chairs, tables, cookers, mattresses, garden waste,

:04:53.:04:55.

just some of the rubbish left behind in Bristol after a group

:04:56.:04:59.

of travellers departed this green in Stockwood, leaving mess behind

:05:00.:05:01.

on an industrial scale. They can just pitch up

:05:02.:05:05.

wherever they like, do what they like for a short period

:05:06.:05:16.

of time and disappear off and then they leave the council and the local

:05:17.:05:19.

residents trying to put things It's thought they'd been charging

:05:20.:05:22.

local people to clear rubbish and then dumping it, out of sight,

:05:23.:05:26.

behind their caravan, the damage only becoming

:05:27.:05:28.

clear when they moved Bristol Council has

:05:29.:05:30.

called in contractors. This the second skip

:05:31.:05:32.

with more still to go. This video was filmed

:05:33.:05:35.

by another local resident. A place popular with children

:05:36.:05:39.

and dog walkers, now turned into a dumping ground,

:05:40.:05:43.

covered in broken glass. The woods here used

:05:44.:05:48.

as a toilet, too. A lorry arrived as we filmed this

:05:49.:05:51.

afternoon, picking up the pieces and the cost,

:05:52.:05:54.

of course, of the rubbish people had Now the council have the option now

:05:55.:05:57.

of going through that rubbish and trying to work out

:05:58.:06:04.

where it came from. Because people having their rubbish

:06:05.:06:06.

taken away, have the responsibility of making sure whoever is taking it

:06:07.:06:10.

has the right licence. Meanwhile, the council are looking

:06:11.:06:14.

at ways of making this site What a mess. Now we have dramatic

:06:15.:06:26.

pictures of you. There have been flash flooding in parts of Somerset

:06:27.:06:30.

this afternoon. This is Yeovil, and they were taken by a firefighter

:06:31.:06:34.

from Devon and Somerset fire and rescue. They were called in to move

:06:35.:06:39.

a vehicle caught in the floodwater. Alongside the downpours. You can

:06:40.:06:42.

hear T there was also thunder and lightning. Hopefully we won't have

:06:43.:06:46.

more of that. Ian will be clear soon.

:06:47.:06:55.

An independent investigation has been launched into how

:06:56.:06:58.

Gloucestershire Police dealt with a series of 999 calls

:06:59.:07:00.

34-year-old Ashley Simmons called the police on a number

:07:01.:07:03.

His body was discovered in Gloucester Docks two days later.

:07:04.:07:06.

The IPCC will look into the actions of staff at the time

:07:07.:07:09.

and whether improvements could be made to prevent a similar

:07:10.:07:12.

A Somerset artist who created nearly 20,000 shrouded figures to mark

:07:13.:07:19.

the Battle of the Somme has started an even bigger challenge.

:07:20.:07:22.

Rob Heard from Washford made the pieces last year to represent

:07:23.:07:25.

the British soldiers who died on the first day of battle.

:07:26.:07:28.

Now he's making more than 72,000 of them -

:07:29.:07:30.

one for each British soldier whose body was never recovered

:07:31.:07:32.

This was an incredible image. You will never forget that.

:07:33.:07:43.

You're watching Friday's Points West with David and Alex.

:07:44.:07:46.

Stay with us as there's plenty more to come before seven,

:07:47.:07:50.

including: Tip-top in time for the Chelsea Flower Show.

:07:51.:07:54.

We ask a six times gold medal winner how does his garden grow.

:07:55.:07:59.

And tomorrow brings another day of dodging or not. The risk of heavy

:08:00.:08:05.

showers, but it is not looking to be the case on Sunday. Details towards

:08:06.:08:06.

the end of the programme. If you are planning a takeaway

:08:07.:08:16.

tonight, we have news for you about that as well. But first:

:08:17.:08:17.

The Ukip candidate for North Wiltshire has been suspended

:08:18.:08:19.

from the party over a series of tweets he sent about race.

:08:20.:08:22.

Our political editor Paul Barltrop has the details.

:08:23.:08:24.

Well the gentlemen's name is Mack 1. He is the Ukip candidate in the

:08:25.:08:34.

constituency of North Wiltshire. He is a former Army officer. He

:08:35.:08:39.

currently runs a company offering trekking holidays in the Himalayas

:08:40.:08:44.

but he is fairly active on twitter. An anti-racist website has uncovered

:08:45.:08:47.

some of the things he has put on there in the past few years. I have

:08:48.:08:54.

to warn people some of what we are about to talk about is fairly

:08:55.:08:56.

offensive. One reads. "Africa is where humans are animals

:08:57.:09:17.

and animals are human." One refers to Chinese people in a similar way

:09:18.:09:24.

and one is derogatory about him. So what's happened to him? ? We've

:09:25.:09:28.

tracked him down, he is out of the country. He says he regrets what he

:09:29.:09:33.

posted. He didn't mean to cause offence. He claims he is not racist

:09:34.:09:37.

and says he was angry at the actions of the Israeli state. How important

:09:38.:09:42.

is social media, Paul, in general election campaigns like the one we

:09:43.:09:46.

are going through now? Well, we hear a lot of talk about things like

:09:47.:09:51.

twitter. We know Facebook influential in the modern era. I

:09:52.:09:55.

have been out finding out that traditional ways of campaigning is

:09:56.:09:56.

still important. This is what elections are about.

:09:57.:10:06.

Volunteers here getting the message out to voters. At the Greens in

:10:07.:10:13.

Bristol, plenty of young faces, including students fitting it in

:10:14.:10:16.

with exams I come to the library every day making sure I know enough.

:10:17.:10:21.

When I have a free afternoon or free morning, I help out. It is good to

:10:22.:10:26.

have a break from revision, and get out and do something, feel you are

:10:27.:10:29.

making a difference. Leaflets aren't the only way they reach out to

:10:30.:10:34.

voters. You know conventional ways, I would say still make up the most

:10:35.:10:42.

of campaigning but the social media can help. This was a graph, which

:10:43.:10:47.

was seen by 70,000 people people in the constituency. Half a century ago

:10:48.:10:53.

this is what electioneering looked like, candidates meeting people

:10:54.:10:56.

face-to-face on Bristol's streets. It is the traditional way to go

:10:57.:11:01.

campaigning but in 2017, canvassing is still considered important. In a

:11:02.:11:04.

hard-fought seat like this wurnings the parties will have teams of

:11:05.:11:09.

volunteers going out door-to-door every day and in Bristol West, the

:11:10.:11:13.

Green's top target they are pulling out all the stops. It is an

:11:14.:11:16.

old-fashioned message but it works. We are aiming to canvass every

:11:17.:11:20.

single house in the constituency. 70,000. It is similar in the Stroud

:11:21.:11:26.

constituency where Labour activists aim it get their message out on the

:11:27.:11:32.

doorstep If you go on the TV and media you would think it is a

:11:33.:11:35.

presidential campaign, you would think it is president May verses

:11:36.:11:38.

Jeremy Corbyn and the others. We should judge people on the policies.

:11:39.:11:43.

On the doorstep it is one way we can get across what we want to do. Their

:11:44.:11:46.

leaflets are all about their candidates, rather than their

:11:47.:11:51.

leader. Many helped here in the local elections but were happy to

:11:52.:11:57.

work on We were looking forward to having a sit, do you you get

:11:58.:12:03.

knockers knuckle I call t knuckle frenzy. You clearly enjoy it? I love

:12:04.:12:08.

T absolutely love it. The fun has another 20 days to run. We are

:12:09.:12:14.

nearly there and we'll be talking live to four

:12:15.:12:16.

of our westcountry candidates Don't miss it - we'll

:12:17.:12:23.

be talking austerity, the winter fuel allowance

:12:24.:12:27.

and embarrassing political gaffes. Now if you're thinking

:12:28.:12:29.

of getting a takeaway tonight, you might want to watch our

:12:30.:12:34.

next report first. That's because coffee shops and fast

:12:35.:12:38.

food outlets in Bristol are being challenged

:12:39.:12:40.

to offer healthier food. Almost two-thirds of adults

:12:41.:12:45.

in the city are overweight or obese and the council hopes a new awards

:12:46.:12:48.

scheme will lead to more Scott Ellis is in

:12:49.:12:51.

Southmead for us tonight. Scott, what is on the menu there?

:12:52.:13:03.

Well, it does smell great here. But you know the number of takeaways in

:13:04.:13:07.

Bristol has doubled in ten years. This is the central shopping area.

:13:08.:13:11.

We have a kebab shop here, we have pizzas on the go and look at the

:13:12.:13:16.

queue for the fish and chip shop. That's what you like to see. They

:13:17.:13:20.

are being challenged to offer healthier food but you may say it is

:13:21.:13:24.

their job to sell White House bewant it eat, regardless whether it is

:13:25.:13:28.

deep fried or otherwise. But there is evidence to say that it might be

:13:29.:13:34.

good for business because a citizens zones' survey say three-quarters of

:13:35.:13:37.

us want healthier food when we buy at takeaways.

:13:38.:13:41.

Bristol loves its takeaways and cafes - there are 494 in total.

:13:42.:13:44.

That's one for every 896 people, beating Gloucester where it's one

:13:45.:13:46.

And far more than Bath, Taunton and Swindon,

:13:47.:13:50.

where takeaways are much more spread out.

:13:51.:13:53.

But convenience food, or coffee and cake, brings

:13:54.:13:55.

Take aways and food outlets tend to be higher in fat, sugar, salt,

:13:56.:14:03.

This cafe at a community centre in Southmead has already made

:14:04.:14:14.

the changes the counil wants to see more of.

:14:15.:14:16.

Crisps are squirrelled away at the back.

:14:17.:14:19.

Well, they're getting rid of them all together.

:14:20.:14:22.

You will be surprised how people will change.

:14:23.:14:23.

They will have a portion of chips one day, then

:14:24.:14:28.

The jacket potatoes are popular, they can have whatever feeling

:14:29.:14:38.

The jacket potatoes are popular, they can have whatever filling

:14:39.:14:40.

So how's healthy living going down with the customers?

:14:41.:14:43.

I do try healthy things, but I'm not very good at it.

:14:44.:15:00.

I'd quit the cakes and have toast and coffee, and that is it.

:15:01.:15:03.

I will quite happily eat at a healthy cafe.

:15:04.:15:13.

Takeaways like chippies can do theire bit -

:15:14.:15:16.

change from palm to vegetable oil, and offer thicker chips -

:15:17.:15:19.

Would you consider healthy options here?

:15:20.:15:23.

If they were on offer, I might be tempted.

:15:24.:15:25.

Stroud-based TV doctor Dawn Harper of Embarrassing Bodies' fame is

:15:26.:15:34.

backing the scheme. I think we need to take this so seriously. Obesity

:15:35.:15:39.

is an epidemic in this country and it'll bankrupt the NHS in my

:15:40.:15:45.

lifetime if we don't turn the tide. Bristol launches this scheme next

:15:46.:15:49.

week and the council hopes 250 takeaways and cafe also sign up in

:15:50.:15:53.

the first year. Well, the look of this food is making me feel peckic.

:15:54.:15:58.

So let's see what is on the menu this evening.

:15:59.:16:20.

8338 calories in the fish supper is quite a lot and incidentally a

:16:21.:16:28.

ten-inch pizza with meat, more calorific, but you can be healthy by

:16:29.:16:34.

having a much inthiser, Neopolitan-style pizza. The choice

:16:35.:16:37.

is yours, remembering, you are what you eat. People are eating right

:16:38.:16:41.

now. Thank you, Scott. A little bit of what you fancy does you good. But

:16:42.:16:45.

moderation in all things. Although some of those pictures put me off a

:16:46.:16:49.

bit. I was feeling hungry until those. No, I could eat that. But I'm

:16:50.:16:57.

in the going to. -- I'm not going to.

:16:58.:17:00.

The National Police Dog Trials have been held in Portishead today.

:17:01.:17:02.

Teams from across the UK were tested on how they tackle armed offenders

:17:03.:17:05.

and there were points for agility and obedience.

:17:06.:17:07.

Local schools were invited to watch, and meet the newest recruits,

:17:08.:17:09.

The event continues over the next two days.

:17:10.:17:13.

One of the country's best known and most loved

:17:14.:17:19.

locomotives is stopping off in the West this evening.

:17:20.:17:23.

The Flying Scotsman will arrive in Gloucester just after 8.00pm.

:17:24.:17:25.

She'll stay there for half an hour before steaming on past Cam

:17:26.:17:28.

and Dursley arriving at Bristol Parkway

:17:29.:17:30.

If you can't catch a glimpse, there will be another chance

:17:31.:17:42.

to see her when she passes by again on Tuesday.

:17:43.:17:45.

You can have the Flying Scotsman I'll have the puppy. I'll have the

:17:46.:17:49.

takeaway! One of the country's

:17:50.:17:51.

most iconic buildings It's exactly 250 years

:17:52.:17:53.

since the first foundation stone was laid in the Royal

:17:54.:17:56.

Crescent in Bath. Imogen Sellers is in

:17:57.:17:58.

Bath for us tonight - Imogen it hasn't changed

:17:59.:18:01.

much has it? No, you are right, Alex but I think

:18:02.:18:12.

you also have to agree that in this early evening sunshine the Royal

:18:13.:18:18.

Crescent couldn't look any more splendid. When John Wood the Younger

:18:19.:18:23.

first started to build it it was considered a radical piece of

:18:24.:18:26.

architecture. It took more than seven years to finish the terrace of

:18:27.:18:31.

30 houses but while the inside of these buildings has obviously

:18:32.:18:34.

changed quite a will the over the years, the George an facade has

:18:35.:18:39.

barely changed at all in more than two-and-a-half centuries. So much

:18:40.:18:43.

history. So many memories. And I've picked out just a few.

:18:44.:18:54.

Newsreel: People come from far afield toed a mire the Georgian

:18:55.:18:57.

Surely this Crescent of houses, the Royal Crescent stands supreme.

:18:58.:19:01.

This BBC archive may be 60 years' old but very little has changed,

:19:02.:19:03.

except perhaps news reports like this one from 1964.

:19:04.:19:05.

Gosh, they're jolly heavy things, I wouldn't have liked to have been

:19:06.:19:08.

a bearer or a flunky or whatever they were in those days.

:19:09.:19:12.

I don't know we always sort of wanted a sudan chair and it

:19:13.:19:32.

There is a staircase suitable for Sudan chairs,

:19:33.:19:38.

What do you mean, specially-made for them?

:19:39.:19:48.

Yes, this staircase is specially constructed for it.

:19:49.:19:50.

I have to get back to Bristol in a hurry and it takes so long by car.

:19:51.:19:59.

Well, there we are, two-abled body gentlemen have miraculously appeared

:20:00.:20:17.

to take me off for Bristol but provided we're back in time

:20:18.:20:20.

From the banning of tour buses to the colour of the front doors,

:20:21.:20:26.

this World Heritage Site has always been a talking point.

:20:27.:20:29.

I think the Royal Crescent is certainly one of the most

:20:30.:20:31.

I thits an iconic building for this city, for Bath.

:20:32.:20:35.

But it's also one of the key buildings of the 18th century.

:20:36.:20:37.

The museum at number 1 shows what life would've been

:20:38.:20:40.

like for the very first residents but even for visitor,

:20:41.:20:43.

the Crescent was the place to be seen.

:20:44.:20:44.

Something like the Royal Crescent as well as being this

:20:45.:20:47.

extraordinary building, you had to find of think of it,

:20:48.:20:49.

almost as a stage set with this huge pavement that all of these

:20:50.:20:52.

On some days in the summer there could be up to 1,000 members

:20:53.:20:56.

of high society just walking round and about and on the

:20:57.:20:59.

privileged grass over there in front of us.

:21:00.:21:01.

It's still as prestigious an address as it ever was,

:21:02.:21:03.

with the Royal Crescent hotel in numbers 15 and 16.

:21:04.:21:06.

This room would set you back more than ?1,000 a night.

:21:07.:21:07.

So many events have been staged here, from music festival opening

:21:08.:21:15.

nights to the performance of the Three Tenors when the front lawn

:21:16.:21:20.

became the setting for a spectacular open-air concert.

:21:21.:21:26.

It's history is as rich as those who can afford to live here. And for the

:21:27.:21:32.

rest of us, well, we can continue to admire the view.

:21:33.:21:36.

TV show, Hollywood movies have all been filmed here. So many celebs

:21:37.:21:42.

have stayed here, troo, Barry man low, Dame Joan kolly, even the

:21:43.:21:46.

former US President, Ronald Reagan is supposed to have said here.

:21:47.:21:48.

Anniversary celebrations kick off tonight. You can see so. Musicians

:21:49.:21:57.

rehearsing, number one will be commissioned with a specially poem.

:21:58.:22:02.

Parties are going on all over Bath tonight because the anniversary

:22:03.:22:05.

coincides with the launch of Bath festival. Celebration for the

:22:06.:22:11.

anniversary going on all over the weekend and throughout the summer.

:22:12.:22:16.

For me all that remains to be said - happy birthday.

:22:17.:22:17.

That was so lovely, thank you. They always say timing is everything

:22:18.:22:28.

and it's definitely true for the West Ccountry gardeners

:22:29.:22:30.

getting ready for the Chelsea After months of hard

:22:31.:22:32.

work and planning - they need everything,

:22:33.:22:35.

including the weather, to come Andy Howard has been to see one man

:22:36.:22:37.

from Miserden near Stroud who knows a thing or two about getting it

:22:38.:22:42.

right - after all he has At this Cotswold nursery,

:22:43.:22:45.

the plants are grown to be They've come from all sides of it

:22:57.:23:02.

given more water, or less, to be ready for the greatest show

:23:03.:23:07.

of them all. So you really are coming in,

:23:08.:23:10.

inspecting every morning, every plant of every batch to think

:23:11.:23:15.

- OK, how can I adjust where you are now because you want

:23:16.:23:18.

everything to look as good as it possibly can for the

:23:19.:23:22.

time the show opens. And even when they leave

:23:23.:23:23.

Gloucestershire, the job isn't done. It's surprising how much a garden

:23:24.:23:27.

will change, especially in the middle of London,

:23:28.:23:29.

during the week. So you design it for when the Queen

:23:30.:23:32.

araves on the Monday. But you equally need to design it

:23:33.:23:36.

for the last person who comes It is every bit as important

:23:37.:23:39.

as the Royal Family. Not that you would say that

:23:40.:23:43.

to the Queen, obviously. These plants are

:23:44.:23:46.

like Chris's family. Some of them do you proud

:23:47.:23:46.

every single day. And some of them

:23:47.:23:50.

are a complete pain. You think - how difficult

:23:51.:23:52.

can that be to grow? You know they all have their own

:23:53.:23:58.

personalities and characters. Some of them you fall in love

:23:59.:24:05.

with and some of them, quite frankly, you just can't wait

:24:06.:24:11.

to get rid of. Well, considering Chris started

:24:12.:24:13.

gardening at 11-years-old and is a Chelsea gold medallist,

:24:14.:24:15.

he gets it right Maybe it's something to do

:24:16.:24:18.

with talking to his plants. I don't know whether they have

:24:19.:24:21.

feelings but sound is about vibration and vibration

:24:22.:24:28.

causes the plant to shake. It is a bit like plants

:24:29.:24:29.

being moved by the wind. You will find that it is a much

:24:30.:24:32.

stockier plant and you get a better So it is true, you should

:24:33.:24:36.

talk to your plants. There's the occasional cuss

:24:37.:24:39.

word actually, with some of them and you know,

:24:40.:24:42.

if you ever want to get a plant

:24:43.:24:44.

into flower, the thing to do - this is your last

:24:45.:24:48.

warning or you're out. Keep going, you're

:24:49.:24:49.

doing really well. You do at times, you know

:24:50.:24:50.

when the rain is running down your back and there's no-one

:24:51.:24:56.

else around and you can't remember the last time you had

:24:57.:24:58.

a coffee and your socks are soggy you do wonder -

:24:59.:25:01.

what am I doing this for? But then you see the plants

:25:02.:25:04.

and think - that's why. Oh, we agree. Thank you so much for

:25:05.:25:21.

that. There was all the rain in Yeovil today.

:25:22.:25:27.

But thanks to the charity Penny Brohn who invited me

:25:28.:25:29.

to host their lunch today - they raised ?55,000

:25:30.:25:31.

Hi, Alex, well, hello everybody, as we have been showing, some dramatic

:25:32.:25:43.

downpours in southern parts of Somerset in particular, Yeovil and

:25:44.:25:46.

around there taking the brunt of torrential thunderstorms. The

:25:47.:25:50.

forecast tomorrow - for a number of you it will be more of the same.

:25:51.:25:55.

There will be a peak period from lunchtime in to about the

:25:56.:25:58.

mid-afternoon where we will see a growing risk of potentially some

:25:59.:26:02.

heavy downpours but either side of that, of a as we have seen today

:26:03.:26:06.

across many districts, dry, sunny, if rather breezy weather. Sunday by

:26:07.:26:13.

contrast, and any one particular point is looking decidedly low. I

:26:14.:26:17.

suspect most if not all areas will have a dry, fine day and feeling

:26:18.:26:22.

warm under the conditions. Here is a wider look at how things are shaping

:26:23.:26:26.

up. Low pressure dominating the pattern for the time being. The

:26:27.:26:31.

focus for the showers into tomorrow will be the remnants of a week

:26:32.:26:38.

occlusion. They should quickly fade away later through the afternoon on

:26:39.:26:42.

Saturday and by Sunday effectively not a shower in sight T doesn't mean

:26:43.:26:47.

there is not a small risk of one but a lot lower risk compared to

:26:48.:26:51.

Saturday. The showers we have I've been watching them from here here at

:26:52.:26:56.

Clifton, they are fading away now, ditto those over Gloucestershire and

:26:57.:26:59.

elsewhere and ultimately a dray night barring one or two showers in

:27:00.:27:04.

the far west of our viewing area. Temperatures tonight could get

:27:05.:27:07.

chilly under largely clear skies, 2-4 not impossible in some parts of

:27:08.:27:10.

Somerset, for example, but tomorrow we should get under way on a largely

:27:11.:27:15.

dry and sunny note again, barring the risk of one or two showers out

:27:16.:27:19.

towards the west but as we head through lunch time, you can see the

:27:20.:27:23.

threat of showers starting to grow. Rumbles of thunder and possibly

:27:24.:27:27.

hail. Much like today, either side of those in sunnier spots, decent

:27:28.:27:31.

enough. 15 likely. We'll get those temperatures higher as we head noop

:27:32.:27:34.

Sunday. It is looking like ultimately next week drying out and

:27:35.:27:38.

warping up. There we go. A lovely treat. Thank you for joining us

:27:39.:27:42.

tonight. Have a lovely weekend. I will see you on Sunday for the

:27:43.:27:46.

Sunday Politics. Bye for now. Bye.
