in Yorkshire, and was amongst the first women to be ordained
a priest in the Church of England in 1994.

has been fool of worship and music and affection and lots of people
happy to be together to come today. Wonderful.

After lots of Sunderland pressure, the transfer window signing from
Napoli put them ahead, and he has just got a second, so Southampton
lead 2-0 early in the second half. Brighton are currently 2-0 up.
Swindon won a goal down at half-time and no goals between Oxford United
and MK Dons. And in League Two, a goal
from Matt Clarke after just two minutes gave Pompey the half time
lead against Accrington Stanley. Good even in. Sticking with the
wintry feel as you move through the rest of this weekend, plenty of
cloud around and a few outbreaks of rain and there could be something
wintry in the mix as the temperature falls into an overnight low of
between one and three. Eat cold start to the day with plenty of
clouds around and it could be wintry as well of higher ground but some

like we will see something more springlike by the time you get to
Monday, the dry and bright with wind as well.

Good afternoon. An afternoon to snuggle up in front of the telly and
watch some rugby. It's been a cold winter's day. Not just for humans.
This shot was taken earlier. There was some sunshine in Scotland, here
a beautiful afternoon. That was the expectation for most. It's bleak out
there. A mixture of rain and snow on the radar. You have to go a long way
up the hills to find settling snow. Into the evening and temperatures
begin to fall again, we could see some of the white stuff turning up
again at lower levels across eastern Counties of England and quite a lot

going to feel cold wherever you are with temperatures hovering close to
freezing. Tomorrow another raw feeling day.
Further rain, sleet and snow. Most of the snow focussed over the Peaks
and Pennines. Rain and sleet
