Thousands of Southampton football fans are heading to Italy this week

A general strike could leavd them stranded abroad.


Nearly 7000 fans are heading to Milan. It is the biggest exodus in


the club's history. But on Friday, when many of them would be thinking


about coming home, there will be a national transport strike in Italy


and the British Foreign Offhce says that could mean flights and trains


are cancelled. A big headache for fans. Joining me now is Clive Foley,


from one of the fan websites. How worried fans about this? Thdy are


worried, but because of the conflicting stories, it is difficult


to make a plan around it, so we will just have to wait and see. Ht is


such a massive occasion for the fans. Ever since the draw w`s made,


this is the game for fans to go to. 7001 of the most iconic stadiums in


the world and it is a massive occasion for everybody. -- 7000 at


one of the most iconic stadhums It is the inconvenience of this strike


and we will deal with it whdn we get there. If the worst comes to the


worst, we will cycle home! Ht is a confusing picture. Today thd Milan


tourist board told us there wouldn't be any problem at all and British


airways told us that they are liaising with the Italian


authorities to monitor the situation. But at the moment, they


aim to operate a normal schddule on Friday. Even so, there is a chance


that some fans could be str`nded for an extra day in Milan. Hopefully an


extra day for them to celebrate Indeed! Thank you.

clear spells overhead, too, so feeling a little


Temperatures taking a tumbld in towns and cities down to around


Cooler in the countryside btt we do have a north-westerly breezd


overnight and that will do just enough to keep the frost at bay


First thing tomorrow, a bright and fresh start to the day.


We'll enjoy some sunny spells through the day with just


the outside chance of a shower, but for most of us, a dry phcture


Looking ahead to Thursday, we could see a bit of patchx mist


and fog to get the day started and there will be some cloud,


perhaps more so in the east of our region, but we will dnjoy


some bright and sunny intervals at times, too.


As we take a look ahead to the tail end of the week,


it looks like we will see one or two showers through Friday,


but for much of the region, once again, a dry picture.


Into the weekend, it looks like we'll stick


with these settled conditions, so on Saturday, some fine and bright


weather after a chilly start, turning a little blustery


Good evening. As you've just seen from your local outlook, not a huge


amount changes over the next few days.
