In tonight's programme: A double whammy for the Isle of Wight -

:00:00.:00:14.

hundreds of operations are cancelled at St Mary's Hospital and some

:00:15.:00:17.

patients are sent to an independent unit to clear the backlog.

:00:18.:00:22.

Here at Saint Mary 's they have cancelled all day surgery at the

:00:23.:00:28.

last three weeks because they are so busy and running out of bed.

:00:29.:00:31.

Meanwhile, the island's two leading councillors step down -

:00:32.:00:33.

they say they won't act as agents of austerity.

:00:34.:00:36.

In a sense we are just dying a slow death here on the Isle of Wight and

:00:37.:00:41.

short of government intervention I fear that is the course we are.

:00:42.:00:46.

Also tonight: Powered by cow waste - Reading's methane-fuelled

And riding high, the Dorset biker celebrating a British first

:00:49.:00:51.

I'm really drained, physically and emotionally but I'm so happy and it

:00:52.:01:05.

is a dream come true for me. Almost all routine surgery

:01:06.:01:18.

on the Isle of Wight has been cancelled since before Christmas

:01:19.:01:21.

because emergency patients BBC South has learned that more

:01:22.:01:22.

than 260 operations have been Some patients have had to be sent to

:01:23.:01:36.

Southampton to get their treatment done on time.

:01:37.:01:51.

With a rapidly ageing population putting increasing

:01:52.:01:53.

pressure on social care, and major cuts in NHS budgets ahead,

:01:54.:01:55.

the system is facing huge challenges over the next few years.Our

:01:56.:01:58.

Health Correspondent David Fenton is at St Mary's Hospital tonight.

:01:59.:02:00.

David, just how bad are things there?

:02:01.:02:02.

I'm going to start with some good news, today for the first time in

:02:03.:02:06.

three weeks they have been able to do some day surgery because they

:02:07.:02:08.

have been cancelling pretty much everything, including some cancer

:02:09.:02:11.

cases since before Christmas and the problem is the beds are full of

:02:12.:02:18.

emergency patients. 267 cancelled operations, they won't catch up on

:02:19.:02:22.

them so they are now sending some patients to an independent treatment

:02:23.:02:26.

centre run by a private company for the NHS at no extra cost. It cost

:02:27.:02:32.

exactly the same as the NHS, on exactly the same contract and

:02:33.:02:37.

payment method so patients can choose to come to us were rather

:02:38.:02:44.

than waiting. We cancel very few operations.

:02:45.:02:50.

The problem here at St Mary's Hospital is that it is not so much

:02:51.:02:55.

treating the patients, it is finding somewhere to put them.

:02:56.:02:59.

This hospital is full and there are 31 emergency cases on their way in.

:03:00.:03:08.

It's been really busy here. From Christmas Day onwards, it's been

:03:09.:03:13.

busier than I think many of us have remembered it. Over time with got

:03:14.:03:18.

better at dealing with surges in capacity, and in spite of that we've

:03:19.:03:22.

had very large numbers of patients into the hospital and really

:03:23.:03:26.

struggled to get patients out as well. Many patients are elderly,

:03:27.:03:31.

this man has a heart condition and lives on his own but he stopped

:03:32.:03:39.

taking his medication. I'm not a charity person, I never have been.

:03:40.:03:44.

It's easy to say you are taking them when you're not. Age UK found him at

:03:45.:03:51.

home with no heat, light, no food and no money. It is not uncommon to

:03:52.:03:57.

hear similar stories to this, people without food and light. We saw one

:03:58.:04:07.

gentleman home alone, with no money on his mobile phone and not able to

:04:08.:04:11.

top it up. If we hadn't seen him, we don't think it would be here. Where

:04:12.:04:18.

previously would have done more low-level support, shopping and

:04:19.:04:22.

befriending, we are really now going out and keeping people fired and

:04:23.:04:25.

warmth and making sure they can get through day to day. The older we

:04:26.:04:32.

get, the more we cost the NHS. The average 20-year-old costs the NHS

:04:33.:04:37.

about ?900 per year, for someone in the mid-50s that's doubled to almost

:04:38.:04:42.

?2000 per year and by the time we reach 85 it has risen to nearly

:04:43.:04:49.

?8,000 per year. It all adds up to a financial time bomb for the NHS,

:04:50.:04:55.

that now needs to save ?2.2 billion in the south. We will see GP

:04:56.:05:00.

surgeries closing because there's a lot of them, they cost a lot to run

:05:01.:05:04.

and many are running out of money. We will see hospitals closing, and

:05:05.:05:11.

A merging. None of which would be popular, but neither would the

:05:12.:05:15.

alternative - and NHS that runs out of money.

:05:16.:05:18.

You mention in your film they have got to save at least ?2 billion in

:05:19.:05:25.

the south, how will they do that? They are already working on plans to

:05:26.:05:28.

manage that over the next three years but let me give you some

:05:29.:05:31.

figures to show you the scale of what's ahead. Hampshire and the Isle

:05:32.:05:38.

of Wight needs to save ?577 million, Sussex and Surrey, 653 million, and

:05:39.:05:45.

Dorset ?229 million of savings but that is in the future. The crisis

:05:46.:05:49.

now for this hospital and many others is how to deal with this

:05:50.:05:54.

surge of patients they are seeing, emergency patients, but also how to

:05:55.:05:58.

get them out of the hospital that don't need to be there but cannot go

:05:59.:06:01.

because there isn't the proper social care. David, thanks very

:06:02.:06:04.

much. And you can see more on the crisis

:06:05.:06:06.

in Isle of Wight Care on Inside Out The crisis in healthcare is just one

:06:07.:06:10.

of many battles being fought The Leader and Deputy Leader

:06:11.:06:15.

of the Isle of Wight Council stepped down today in what they say

:06:16.:06:19.

is a coordinated effort to highlight the island's

:06:20.:06:21.

struggle with austerity. In a statement, Jonathan Bacon

:06:22.:06:23.

and Steve Stubbings said party politics and ego were being put

:06:24.:06:25.

before the concerns of islanders. Our political editor

:06:26.:06:28.

Peter Henley's with me now. They say they were frustrated

:06:29.:06:32.

with government cuts and growing demand but also frustration

:06:33.:06:44.

that they were trying to do politics in a different way and found

:06:45.:06:47.

they couldn't get central The independents took control

:06:48.:06:49.

from the Conservatives Quite a sweep, winning

:06:50.:06:54.

20 seats in one go. They were promising to put

:06:55.:06:59.

people before politics. Now they're saying politics has

:07:00.:07:05.

beaten them, and with four months left before the elections,

:07:06.:07:10.

half the Cabinet have handed back their jobs suggesting

:07:11.:07:12.

someone else take over. It would only be someone wedded to

:07:13.:07:20.

the Government's austerity agenda that could, I presume, with any real

:07:21.:07:26.

dignity or honesty carry through these policies and for me is not

:07:27.:07:30.

possible. I don't believe in them and I think people are being really

:07:31.:07:33.

damaged by what's going on and a lot of those people are people I really

:07:34.:07:35.

care about. They accept they may be

:07:36.:07:37.

accused of being cowards. In fact the Conservative group also

:07:38.:07:41.

says they've failed in their duty, and Labour called it an abdication

:07:42.:07:44.

of responsibility, but they say it would be dishonest to keep taking

:07:45.:07:47.

decisions they don't believe in. They are also pressing central

:07:48.:07:54.

government to give more powers to a locally elected mayor, what's

:07:55.:07:58.

happening there? It was part of the plan to take more local control.

:07:59.:08:06.

I do believe the Government are still focused on locally elected

:08:07.:08:19.

mayors, and they have a right to talk about the investment we need.

:08:20.:08:22.

So does it look like the island won't be part of this?

:08:23.:08:29.

We will know on Wednesday who is taking charge at a new meeting and

:08:30.:08:36.

the Portsmouth and Southampton leaders have booked a place on the

:08:37.:08:40.

ferry to see who it is. Thanks very much.

:08:41.:08:43.

The family of a man killed by a van driver who'd been using his phone

:08:44.:08:47.

to send a text message say they're outraged he's been allowed

:08:48.:08:50.

to appeal against his nine-year prison sentence.

:08:51.:08:51.

Lee Martin was cycling on the A31 near Bentley in August 2015

:08:52.:08:54.

when he was hit by a van travelling at 60 miles an hour.

:08:55.:08:57.

Christopher Gard was sentenced to nine years for causing death

:08:58.:09:00.

He'd already been convicted of using his phone eight times

:09:01.:09:03.

at the wheel, but magistrates had allowed him to keep his licence six

:09:04.:09:06.

weeks earlier after he said his livelihood depended on it.

:09:07.:09:10.

He's taken my brother 's life, he's robbed us of Lee Martin and he is

:09:11.:09:19.

replaceable and this bloke is now trying to weasel his way out of it.

:09:20.:09:23.

I want there to be justice for my brother and also, you know, what

:09:24.:09:28.

kind of signal does it send out if the sentences reduced?

:09:29.:09:31.

An inquest has heard no-one will be prosecuted over the death

:09:32.:09:34.

of a soldier from West Sussex in a "friendly fire" incident

:09:35.:09:36.

Lance-Corporal James Brynin from Shoreham died during an operation

:09:37.:09:40.

in Helmand Province after being shot by a colleague.

:09:41.:09:42.

The inquest was adjourned last year amid concerns his death may

:09:43.:09:44.

Once Corporal James brining was carrying out work in Central Helmand

:09:45.:10:04.

on October 2013, 22 years old when he died. An inquest opened in March

:10:05.:10:08.

last year attended by his parents. It heard evidence from Lance

:10:09.:10:14.

Corporal Kelly, who said he'd mistaken James foreign insurgents

:10:15.:10:18.

and described how he'd come under fire and believed he saw an

:10:19.:10:23.

insurgent close by. He fired four or five rounds in quick succession,

:10:24.:10:27.

four minutes later he said that when I heard a man down screaming in my

:10:28.:10:33.

ear. In court he accepted he had shot James. After six days the

:10:34.:10:37.

inquest was halted amid concerns there may have been a homicide

:10:38.:10:42.

defence. At the start of today's proceedings, the coroner told the

:10:43.:10:46.

court that the service prosecuting authority had held an internal

:10:47.:10:52.

review, together with evidence from the first six days of the inquest.

:10:53.:10:56.

It decided there was insufficient evidence of a homicide, therefore

:10:57.:11:02.

the coroner 's inquest but now resume. James' family were told that

:11:03.:11:07.

decision last November. The court heard evidence the shooting has had

:11:08.:11:11.

a profound effect on Mark Kelly, who had broken down in tears in an

:11:12.:11:17.

interview with the Household Cavalry. He said to have learned

:11:18.:11:21.

from his mistakes and will be considered for future deployments.

:11:22.:11:24.

The inquest hearing will continue tomorrow.

:11:25.:11:27.

A girl who was born with brain damage at Poole Hospital nine years

:11:28.:11:30.

ago has been awarded more than seven ?7 million compensation.

:11:31.:11:32.

The child suffered near total oxygen starvation in the later stages

:11:33.:11:35.

Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has admitted being fully

:11:36.:11:40.

liable for the injuries, which left her physically disabled.

:11:41.:11:42.

It's apologised and agreed to pay her a lump sum,

:11:43.:11:44.

plus annual payments to cover the cost of her care.

:11:45.:11:53.

Stay with us for the weather forecast with Alexis.

:11:54.:12:00.

After a soggy start of the week, the forecast is mainly settled. Sunny

:12:01.:12:08.

spells at time, a cold spell and mainly dry.

:12:09.:12:11.

A high-tech airborne radar system that'll be the eyes and ears

:12:12.:12:13.

of the Navy's new Portsmouth based aircraft carriers has finally got

:12:14.:12:16.

The way decisions about the Crowsnest radar have been made

:12:17.:12:24.

has come in for criticism from the National Audit Office.

:12:25.:12:27.

But today in Portsmouth the government announced

:12:28.:12:29.

the ?269 million project is going ahead, helping to secure

:12:30.:12:31.

The Royal Navy's big new aircraft carriers will need plenty of

:12:32.:12:49.

protection. With radar equipment on board and in the sky providing early

:12:50.:12:54.

warning of incoming threats. Now the Ministry of Defence is going ahead

:12:55.:12:59.

with the project to fit the latest Crowsnest radar system to Merlin

:13:00.:13:04.

helicopters like these. Looks over the horizon, looks out

:13:05.:13:07.

long-distance, looks high and back covers the gaps. It's a big

:13:08.:13:13.

contract, ?269 million. The Government had faced strong

:13:14.:13:17.

criticism over delays to the project, but today on board HMS

:13:18.:13:21.

dragon in Portsmouth, the message from the minister was positive.

:13:22.:13:25.

Obviously really important to get these things right and it's a really

:13:26.:13:29.

good news announcement today. It's going to sustain almost 200 jobs

:13:30.:13:33.

here in the South. But you would accept that if ministers had got to

:13:34.:13:37.

move on in terms of the positive decision-making, we could have been

:13:38.:13:42.

here a lot earlier? Innovation is really important and we do sometimes

:13:43.:13:45.

have to make adjustments during the procurement process to make sure we

:13:46.:13:49.

have the right cutting edge capability. The Navy is confident

:13:50.:13:53.

the new system will be up and running, and with crews trained by

:13:54.:13:58.

the time the first the aircraft carrier becomes operational in 2020.

:13:59.:14:03.

We accelerated the programme to meet those dates. At the moment we are

:14:04.:14:07.

looking slightly ahead of the carrier requirements so it's looking

:14:08.:14:12.

good. The contract is a boost for industry. It will secure 80 posts in

:14:13.:14:17.

Crawley and another 60 here in have and where they are using the latest

:14:18.:14:22.

technology to make the new system is easy to use as possible. -- in

:14:23.:14:32.

Havant. Altogether 30 of the Navy's Merlin helicopters will be modified

:14:33.:14:34.

to carry the new Crowsnest radar. The money's good and

:14:35.:14:39.

the hours reasonable. Southern Railway, which is enduring

:14:40.:14:42.

months of strikes, has launched It comes amid a new row

:14:43.:14:45.

about whether the drivers' union has changed its attitude to what's

:14:46.:14:54.

called Driver Only Operation. Our Transport Correspondent

:14:55.:14:56.

Paul Clifton is here. Well, Sally, let's

:14:57.:14:59.

see what's on offer. Govia Thameslink Railway,

:15:00.:15:11.

Southern's parent company, wants maintain a constant pool

:15:12.:15:14.

of 200 drivers in training. That's for a four-day

:15:15.:15:16.

week, doing 35 hours. And most drivers work a fifth day

:15:17.:15:19.

as voluntary overtime, Most train operators

:15:20.:15:22.

rely on that overtime. Drivers earn more, and companies can

:15:23.:15:26.

employ fewer people, But an overtime ban by the drivers'

:15:27.:15:30.

union is biting hard on Southern. Even on days with no strike,

:15:31.:15:38.

like today, it means around one Now, let me remind you of

:15:39.:15:41.

something the drivers' Our view is that in the increasingly

:15:42.:15:59.

longer trains in particular, we've got 1100 people, and nobody on the

:16:00.:16:07.

train to serve the critical role to say it is unsafe.

:16:08.:16:09.

Rail magazine has uncovered a letter, signed by Mick Whelan,

:16:10.:16:11.

in which he agrees to run precisely that sort of train.

:16:12.:16:14.

Aslef agrees to drive and operate 12 car DOO trains, it says.

:16:15.:16:18.

The newest, longest trains, carrying the most people,

:16:19.:16:20.

of the type used on Southern and Gatwick Express.

:16:21.:16:24.

Aslef says it has opposed driver-only operation for 15 years.

:16:25.:16:29.

Yet six years ago, here it is signing up to more of it,

:16:30.:16:33.

The union says it was honouring an extension

:16:34.:16:40.

But clearly here it was accepting drivers should do what it now calls

:16:41.:16:46.

a fundamentally unsafe way of working.

:16:47.:16:55.

Plans to build the Reading section of a new cross-Berkshire cycle route

:16:56.:16:57.

The route will eventually stretch from Newbury to Ascot.

:16:58.:17:01.

The first section along Bath Road will cost 450 thousand

:17:02.:17:03.

pounds and should join up existing cycle lanes.

:17:04.:17:05.

But some campaigners say it's been a long time coming and parts

:17:06.:17:08.

Having one big route will hopefully join all those cycle lanes into a

:17:09.:17:27.

cycle network and that's what cyclists really need because you're

:17:28.:17:30.

not just travelling down one road from most journeys, you're going to

:17:31.:17:34.

be travelling halfway across town and you need a route that will take

:17:35.:17:36.

you some distance. A brand new fleet of environmentally

:17:37.:17:38.

friendly buses are due to start running on the streets

:17:39.:17:41.

of Reading this week. Reading Buses have bought five

:17:42.:17:43.

of them at a cost of a quarter As well as having free 4G wifi,

:17:44.:17:46.

they've also got mobile But the new EURO 4 buses aren't

:17:47.:17:50.

fuelled by petrol or diesel Edward Sault has

:17:51.:17:55.

been to take a look. The regal welcome for Redding's new

:17:56.:18:09.

royal bosses but this one is slightly different, and Daisy the

:18:10.:18:13.

cow might be a bit of a giveaway as to why. This is the world's first

:18:14.:18:21.

gas double-decker bus, powered by a sustainable form of the gas fuel,

:18:22.:18:26.

and the source comes from cow waste, their bedding, food stock and other

:18:27.:18:31.

waste products as well. And that was a pivotal reason why the bus company

:18:32.:18:36.

decided to buy five of these at a quarter of ?1 million each. We have

:18:37.:18:41.

some of the poorest air quality in the South in parts of the borough.

:18:42.:18:47.

More people come into Redding every day by bus and therefore it is

:18:48.:18:51.

important that Redding buses was in the forefront of using the greenest

:18:52.:18:58.

and cleanest ones available. It also has some devices you may have not

:18:59.:19:03.

seen in the past such as free 4G Wi-Fi and coat hooks. It's also got

:19:04.:19:09.

a mobile phone charger, you simply take it out of its case, plug it

:19:10.:19:18.

into your phone and leave it to charge whilst you are on the go.

:19:19.:19:23.

It's got some great things on there and it's exciting that it is

:19:24.:19:25.

environmentally friendly and will be extended to other routes. We have

:19:26.:19:30.

got to do something useful with cow waste. These buses will be serving

:19:31.:19:40.

route 33, turning the spotlight onto a Greenaway of travelling.

:19:41.:19:45.

Straight on to sport and Tony husband is here. I got a lot of

:19:46.:19:52.

tweets over the weekend saying to look out for Sam Sunderland.

:19:53.:20:01.

Sam Sunderland broke his ankles, knees and pelvis in a motorbike

:20:02.:20:04.

11 years later his determination to reach the top has been rewarded.

:20:05.:20:08.

He's become the first Briton to win the Dakar rally in any category

:20:09.:20:11.

Formerly known as the Paris Dakar rally, this staging

:20:12.:20:13.

was held in South America and ran through Paraguay.

:20:14.:20:16.

Sunderland, from Poole, but now mainly based in Dubai had

:20:17.:20:21.

led for his team KTM since stage five of 12.

:20:22.:20:23.

It was an emotional moment as he crossed the line.

:20:24.:20:32.

It feels incredible. I'm lost for words. In the last couple of

:20:33.:20:43.

moments, the emotion started to kick in, and it was just a bit

:20:44.:20:48.

overwhelming. It's amazing. I've had an incredible week, and really thank

:20:49.:20:52.

some stages cancelled due to the been a really hard rally,

:20:53.:21:09.

and I'm really drained, physically weather, it was still

:21:10.:21:09.

and emotionally but I'm so happy and and emotionally but I'm so happy and

:21:10.:21:10.

it is a dream come true for me. Loads of people across Hampshire and

:21:11.:21:13.

Dorset very proud of him, congratulations.

:21:14.:21:15.

Alex Thomson has set yet another record in the Vendee Globe single

:21:16.:21:18.

The Gosport sailor covered more than 600 miles in 24 hours faster

:21:19.:21:22.

than has ever been done before, as he continues to try and catch

:21:23.:21:25.

Thomson's damaged bat Hugo Boss has closed the gap tonight

Thomson is attempting to become the first Briton ever to win

:21:35.:21:41.

the race known as the Everest of the seas, a two and half

:21:42.:21:44.

month challenge against the prevailing winds and tides.

:21:45.:21:48.

Earlier today we had this update as he attempts to catch pre-race

:21:49.:21:51.

It's about trying to get as close to our man as possible and I'm

:21:52.:22:01.

struggling a little bit at the moment, not catching him as much as

:22:02.:22:05.

I would like. I'm struggling a little bit with the steering. I have

:22:06.:22:09.

some play in the steering system which basically means when I get to

:22:10.:22:15.

high speeds, the boat becomes a little bit uncontrollable. So I've

:22:16.:22:20.

had a few very near accidental jibes. It is still all to play for.

:22:21.:22:25.

We will have to see what happens but one thing you can count on, I'm

:22:26.:22:29.

going to fight until the end. We are with you, Alex, all the way until

:22:30.:22:32.

the end. Southampton football manager

:22:33.:22:34.

Claude Puel described his side's loss at Burnley this

:22:35.:22:36.

weekend as incredible. Southampton failed to take a string

:22:37.:22:37.

of chances and paid the price when Joey Barton's free kick beat

:22:38.:22:40.

Fraser Forster 12 minutes from time. It was Southampton's fourth

:22:41.:22:43.

consecutive Premier League defeat and they're down to 13th

:22:44.:22:45.

in the table. Here's the key headlines from

:22:46.:22:48.

the rest of the weekend's football. 19 months after signing, Tyrone

:22:49.:23:00.

Minks made his first start for Bournemouth but it was a day to

:23:01.:23:04.

forget. It started well enough, Ryan Fraser going over in the box in the

:23:05.:23:08.

first minute, Stanislas converting from the spot. Eddie Howe criticised

:23:09.:23:17.

for his team selection in the FA Cup, he now says there's everything

:23:18.:23:25.

to for. The unfortunate Mings deflected in Hull's third.

:23:26.:23:29.

Right and suffered their first defeat since September and the

:23:30.:23:33.

manager held his hands up. They are down to second now in the

:23:34.:23:37.

championships. It was the chaplain show at Fratton

:23:38.:23:43.

Park. They got three points despite chaplain missing this first half

:23:44.:23:47.

penalty. He would soon make amends bow, lurking at the far post to turn

:23:48.:23:53.

in Carl Baker's deflected effort. The goal of the game not, Gavin

:23:54.:24:00.

Massey picks his spot into the far corner. But chaplain got the winner

:24:01.:24:04.

and Portsmouth are fourth in the league to table.

:24:05.:24:05.

Finally from me, congratulations to Britain's oldest living Olympian

:24:06.:24:08.

who's celebrating his 100th birthday today.

:24:09.:24:10.

This is Bill Lucas, from Cowfold in West Sussex.

:24:11.:24:12.

He's in the striped top, running in the 5,000 metres

:24:13.:24:13.

He didn't make the final though, which he blames

:24:14.:24:19.

That's because he'd been due to run in 1940 and '44,

:24:20.:24:26.

but the Games were cancelled and he was called up to the RAF.

:24:27.:24:31.

He said the key to a long life is a whiskey every evening. We have the

:24:32.:24:39.

weather for the week ahead. Yes, a little bit cold at times through the

:24:40.:24:43.

course of the week with perhaps a little bit of frost.

:24:44.:24:46.

Sue Cheney captured the grey conditions whilst walking her dog

Lynne Harvey took this picture of a squirrel

:24:52.:24:53.

And Chris Proudfoot took this picture of the low tide

:24:54.:24:56.

Quite a grey day with outbreaks of rain at times but the weather ahead

:24:57.:25:05.

is on improving picture. It should be mainly dry through most of this

:25:06.:25:09.

week with temperatures struggling on Sundays. High pressure remains in

:25:10.:25:14.

charge of the weather, it should be mainly dry. The possibility of some

:25:15.:25:18.

frost overnight tonight and also on Wednesday morning. We may have a

:25:19.:25:25.

frost first thing tomorrow, milder temperatures for western parts and

:25:26.:25:30.

we are looking at loads of freezing. A cloudy start to western areas

:25:31.:25:34.

tomorrow but the cloud will start to be nibbled away by the sunshine.

:25:35.:25:38.

Sunny spells making an appearance, more cloud through the latter part

:25:39.:25:44.

of the afternoon. Otherwise it is going to be a lovely, sunny day with

:25:45.:25:48.

temperatures reaching as high as seven Celsius so in some parts it

:25:49.:25:54.

will feel chilly. More so overnight and under the clear skies the

:25:55.:25:59.

temperatures will plunge to minus forced Celsius in the countryside.

:26:00.:26:03.

Light winds to start Wednesday, and there will be a frost. In some

:26:04.:26:14.

places only reaching a high temperature of four Celsius. More

:26:15.:26:16.

cloud in general on Thursday, we will have this weather front across

:26:17.:26:20.

the country. High pressure still dominating the weather through much

:26:21.:26:24.

of the week. Thursday, temperatures will reach around seven Celsius, and

:26:25.:26:32.

a similar scenario also on Friday. We are expecting a good deal of

:26:33.:26:36.

cloud but Thursday and Friday should be mainly dry. Where the cloud is

:26:37.:26:40.

thickest we should have the odd spot of drizzle. Temperatures on Friday

:26:41.:26:46.

reaching age Celsius, so more mild than tomorrow and Wednesday. High

:26:47.:26:51.

pressure remains in charge of our weather, it should stay mainly dry

:26:52.:26:57.

at the weekend, staying generally cloudy.

:26:58.:27:03.

Looking at the weather, Alex Thompson the Gosport sailor is doing

:27:04.:27:09.

something like 30 knots, we should look at the weather forecast for him

:27:10.:27:13.

to see what will happen. And we heard him talking there, dramatic

:27:14.:27:19.

stuff and the whole interview is on our Facebook page. That's it from

:27:20.:27:22.

us, more tomorrow. Good night.
