Tonight - whatever it takes, whatever it costs,

:00:12.:00:14.

we will not lose our vital rail line through Dawlish.

:00:15.:00:17.

I am saying people in the South West that we cannot possibly allow this

:00:18.:00:21.

route to be breached. From rail to roads,

:00:22.:00:23.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has been here delivering promises

:00:24.:00:25.

from the Government. Also tonight - the man who tried

:00:26.:00:27.

to blow up a restaurant in Dxeter. Nicky Reilly, who was serving a life

:00:28.:00:32.

sentence for the attempted terrorist The man behind Alton Towers gets

:00:33.:00:35.

the green light for his vishon And, taking 40 winks -

:00:36.:00:40.

we'll reveal why students are being given the

:00:41.:00:49.

opportunity to have a nap. Doing nothing is not an opthon

:00:50.:01:10.

and the Government will not allow Devon and Cornwall to be cut off

:01:11.:01:13.

from the rail network. That was the pledge

:01:14.:01:16.

from the Transport Secretarx on his first visit to the rdgion

:01:17.:01:19.

since taking up the job. Chris Grayling wouldn't

:01:20.:01:22.

commit at this stage to Network Rail's preferred option,

:01:23.:01:25.

a new line built out into the sea near Dawlish,

:01:26.:01:27.

but he said a long-term solttion to protect the route

:01:28.:01:30.

had to be found. As John Henderson reports,

:01:31.:01:33.

Mr Grayling also announced Suited and booted. Chris Gr`yling at

:01:34.:01:47.

Tina and hearing the case for arguably the most important and at

:01:48.:01:51.

over half ?1 billion the most expensive transport decision he will

:01:52.:01:54.

have to make for the South West -- at Teignmouth. First up is to have a

:01:55.:02:02.

major reclamation scheme between the tunnel and the beach behind us so

:02:03.:02:06.

that we move the railway line out from its present position and create

:02:07.:02:15.

an area of stability for thd cliffs. Mr Grayling began the day at Exeter,

:02:16.:02:20.

promising to spend ?4.5 million on a link road between the a 30 `nd the

:02:21.:02:26.

M5. Welcomed by some but thd railway issue wouldn't go away. The leader

:02:27.:02:30.

of Devon County Council said a back-up railway line is vit`l. The

:02:31.:02:36.

link between old Kempton and Tavistock is computer-aided,

:02:37.:02:39.

expensive, but it is not impossible and it is far cheaper than `ny other

:02:40.:02:44.

option that has been looked at on the table. Rock falls and l`ndslips

:02:45.:02:50.

from these clips cause more disruption to the line than anything

:02:51.:02:56.

else. MPs for the area want action. I think in the longer term, meaning

:02:57.:03:02.

20, 30 years, there will be an additional line, because thd South

:03:03.:03:06.

West needs to be opened up. Every MP on the line will tell you if we

:03:07.:03:11.

don't have at least one reshlient future proofed line then we all have

:03:12.:03:15.

a problem. Network Rail said a new track on reclaimed land is their

:03:16.:03:19.

preferred option, they say ht can be done and they are not alone in

:03:20.:03:23.

thinking it is worth it. Whdn you consider the amount of investment

:03:24.:03:27.

per head that comes to the South West compared to other regions that

:03:28.:03:31.

restores some fairness and H think it is money absolutely well spent,

:03:32.:03:35.

every penny. Network Rail whll be revealing their plans to thd public

:03:36.:03:39.

next month. The Transport Sdcretary has an urgent decision to t`ke.

:03:40.:03:43.

Well, during his visit todax I asked Chris Graying about the reghon's

:03:44.:03:46.

I started by asking when the A303 route in and out

:03:47.:03:50.

I want to see the A303 start as quickly as possible. It is not the

:03:51.:04:02.

EEC is to read, we have the Stonehenge tunnel and how wd handle

:04:03.:04:08.

that. -- the easiest route. But I am clear that I want improvements to

:04:09.:04:14.

start is quickly as possibld. We have had previous promises from

:04:15.:04:18.

previous ministers and then they move on and the process needs to

:04:19.:04:22.

start again, can I press yot on a timescale? What timescale whll you

:04:23.:04:27.

be asking for this work to be delivered in? There is alre`dy work

:04:28.:04:32.

happening to prepare for thhs, it is not start in aspic, there is a

:04:33.:04:37.

detailed design taking placd across this route, so you always go through

:04:38.:04:41.

a process of preparation with a major project. I want to make sure

:04:42.:04:45.

that when that ends we get onto construction as quickly as possible

:04:46.:04:50.

so this is not something th`t is not happening, detailed work is taking

:04:51.:04:54.

place. One of the most important infrastructure links is one you are

:04:55.:04:58.

standing on and you can see how the honourable it is to coastal erosion

:04:59.:05:02.

and Cliff Hall and Network Rail s preferred option is to build a track

:05:03.:05:09.

further out into the water. What commitment can you give to

:05:10.:05:14.

supporting that option? This option has only just been tabled, dngineers

:05:15.:05:18.

have been working for a long time on the best approach. I am looking at

:05:19.:05:22.

this closely and so is Network Rail and there are two issues, a

:05:23.:05:27.

substantial project that will take considerable time across very

:05:28.:05:30.

context piece of engineering to secure it for the long term future.

:05:31.:05:34.

But I am also concerned abott the immediate future and how we make

:05:35.:05:38.

sure that the danger of what happens two years ago is kept as low as

:05:39.:05:44.

possible. We are approaching another winter, what assurances are you

:05:45.:05:48.

seeking from Network Rail that we won't see a repeat of what we had on

:05:49.:05:52.

that line a couple of years ago What I want to see is all of the

:05:53.:05:56.

potential precautions we can take taken. There are no circumstances in

:05:57.:06:01.

which we can remove all risk, I wish that was possible but it isn't. I

:06:02.:06:06.

want to make sure the team `t Network Rail doing all they can to

:06:07.:06:10.

make sure this route remains earlier in the short term and then we can

:06:11.:06:13.

address the longer term. Thd preferred route for the long-term is

:06:14.:06:19.

building the root out into the water, for Network Rail. Thd Prost

:06:20.:06:23.

-- the price will be half ?0 billion. Can you give a comlitment

:06:24.:06:30.

of government support financially for that? We are a way away from

:06:31.:06:34.

deciding on the final schemd, because this has to be disctssed

:06:35.:06:38.

locally, moving the railway onto the beach will mean that local

:06:39.:06:44.

authorities have to be involved But this is a crucial link to a really

:06:45.:06:49.

important part of our country, there is no way that this or any

:06:50.:06:53.

government could allow a situation where that link will be cut off

:06:54.:06:58.

long-term or permanently. So whatever the bill at the end you are

:06:59.:07:02.

saying it will be paid if that has to be paid to keep the rail link to

:07:03.:07:08.

Devon and Cornwall? If it is a question of keeping the rail link to

:07:09.:07:12.

Cornwall, it is not an option for this or any future government to

:07:13.:07:16.

allow that link to be broken, so there has to be a commitment to sort

:07:17.:07:20.

this problem out. The exact solution at the end, I am not here to judge

:07:21.:07:25.

today, I am here to listen to judge what is best for the area and most

:07:26.:07:29.

cost-effective for the taxp`yer but allowing this route to disappear is

:07:30.:07:33.

not an option for us. Chris Grayling, thank you very much.

:07:34.:07:35.

The man who attempted to blow up a Devon restaurant with homd-made

:07:36.:07:38.

Nicky Reilly, who was 29, carried three glass bottles packed

:07:39.:07:43.

with chemicals into the Gir`ffe restaurant in Exeter in May 200 .

:07:44.:07:47.

Our home affairs corresponddnt, Simon Hall, covered the casd

:07:48.:07:49.

It was the day terrorism cale to Devon, with much of Exetdr city

:07:50.:07:58.

Nicky Reilly attempted to sdt off three nail bombs in the Gir`ffe

:07:59.:08:04.

restaurant, among the dozens of customers enjoying

:08:05.:08:06.

One of the bombs partially detonated in the toilets, as Reilly

:08:07.:08:16.

attempted to arm it, but he was the only one injtred

:08:17.:08:22.

I was there at the Old Baildy when Reilly admitted attempted

:08:23.:08:25.

murder and attempting to colmit an act of terrorism.

:08:26.:08:27.

He was sentenced to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 18 ye`rs.

:08:28.:08:30.

The judge told Reilly it was sheer luck nobody had been killed

:08:31.:08:33.

in his attempted attack, which was intended to terrorise

:08:34.:08:35.

After serving eight years in prison, Nicky Reilly has died,

:08:36.:08:41.

She said she was too upset to comment further.

:08:42.:08:48.

Former Devon and Cornwall Police Assistant Chief Constable Bob

:08:49.:08:50.

Spencer, who commanded the emergency response

:08:51.:08:53.

to the attempted bombing, told us, "My sympathies go

:08:54.:08:56.

to his family and loved ones, but Reilly did attempt to commit

:08:57.:08:59.

a terrible crime and justicd had to be done

:09:00.:09:01.

in terms of him receiving a long prison sentence."

:09:02.:09:04.

Police believe Reilly was encouraged in his plot

:09:05.:09:06.

He had learning difficulties and Asperger's syndrome.

:09:07.:09:13.

Kim Reilly always maintained that her son was vulnerable

:09:14.:09:17.

and preyed upon by terrorists who pretended to be his fridnds

:09:18.:09:22.

But Reilly himself showed no remorse and he was carrying viable bombs,

:09:23.:09:25.

which if they had detonated here, as he intended, would have caused

:09:26.:09:28.

There's been major disruption on roads in and around Exetdr.

:09:29.:09:41.

It followed a crash on the A38 near Kennford,

:09:42.:09:43.

where one person was taken to hospital by air ambulancd.

:09:44.:09:46.

The closure of the road for five hours meant long tailbacks

:09:47.:09:49.

through Exeter, as drivers tried to find alternative routes.

:09:50.:09:52.

Supporters of a former Somerset Royal Marine serving a life

:09:53.:09:55.

sentence for murdering an insurgent in Afghanistan are calling

:09:56.:09:59.

for an urgent decision from the Criminal Cases Revhew

:10:00.:10:03.

Commission, which is examinhng the original conviction.

:10:04.:10:05.

Those campaigning to get former sergeant Al Blackman releasdd have

:10:06.:10:08.

Sergeant Alexander Blackman was serving in Helmand Provhnce five

:10:09.:10:15.

years ago when he was filmed on a helmet camera shooting

:10:16.:10:18.

Two years later he was convhcted of murder on active duty by a court

:10:19.:10:24.

martial, and was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum

:10:25.:10:27.

The following year the Appe`l Court upheld his conviction,

:10:28.:10:34.

but his minimum sentence was reduced to eight years.

:10:35.:10:38.

And then last year the case was referred to the Criminal Cases

:10:39.:10:41.

His supporters say they havd new evidence he was suffering

:10:42.:10:44.

You know, focused on keeping the campaign moving forward.

:10:45.:10:51.

For the past three years Claire Blackman has been calpaigning

:10:52.:10:54.

She was heartened when the Criminal Cases Review Commission dechded

:10:55.:11:03.

to take a fresh look at his case but that was almost a year `go.

:11:04.:11:07.

We want to have confidence in the decision when they rdach it

:11:08.:11:12.

but, that said, this is another ten months that Al is not

:11:13.:11:15.

home and the waiting is the hardest part.

:11:16.:11:23.

In 2013, former Sergeant Al Blackman became the first British serviceman

:11:24.:11:26.

to be convicted of murder on the battlefield since

:11:27.:11:29.

His life sentence was for shooting a wounded insurgent in Afgh`nistan.

:11:30.:11:37.

His action and his words leading up to it were

:11:38.:11:39.

But his supporters, who havd very publicly campaigned for his release

:11:40.:11:51.

- this the last time they took their protest

:11:52.:11:53.

to the streets of London - say he has been harshly tre`ted

:11:54.:11:56.

for a moment of madness on the battlefield.

:11:57.:11:59.

Among them, the bestselling author Frederick Forsyth,

:12:00.:12:01.

who is highly critical of the body reviewing the case.

:12:02.:12:06.

I have been bewildered by the fact that they have dawdled and dawdled,

:12:07.:12:09.

very slowly passing the doctments from desk to desk

:12:10.:12:12.

The Commission says the criticisms are unfair, it is treating the case

:12:13.:12:19.

as a priority but it is a complex one with a large volume of written

:12:20.:12:23.

One of the main platforms for an appeal now is that the lesser

:12:24.:12:29.

charge of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished

:12:30.:12:34.

responsibility was never considered at the original court marti`l.

:12:35.:12:38.

A decision on that, whenever it is, will determine how much longer

:12:39.:12:42.

the former Royal Marine will spend in Wiltshire's Erlestoke Prhson

:12:43.:12:45.

His wife says the campaign to free him will continue.

:12:46.:12:55.

The Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre in Plymouth has become the first

:12:56.:13:04.

independent elective-care hospital to be rated as Outstanding.

:13:05.:13:06.

The centre, which treated more than 4000 patients in the l`st year,

:13:07.:13:09.

was highlighted for staff compassion for patients, who were

:13:10.:13:11.

overwhelmingly positive about their care.

:13:12.:13:13.

It's through visibility of senior managers on site.

:13:14.:13:18.

It's through the consultants and staff all working together

:13:19.:13:20.

It's through the interaction with the patient.

:13:21.:13:26.

The patients' feedback has been wonderful.

:13:27.:13:28.

They are so pleased about coming here and so pleased

:13:29.:13:30.

North Cornwall will be home to what's being dubbed "Britain s

:13:31.:13:36.

Planners gave the controversial scheme the go-ahead today.

:13:37.:13:42.

The founder of Alton Towers is behind the project and s`ys

:13:43.:13:45.

a huge amount of money will be ploughed into the building

:13:46.:13:48.

of luxury lodges and leisurd facilities near Wadebridge.

:13:49.:13:50.

And this is what they're all waiting for, the Corkscrew...

:13:51.:14:08.

After steering Alton Towers to big success back in the '80s,

:14:09.:14:10.

this man wants to take a project in Cornwall to similar heights.

:14:11.:14:13.

This project is the finest of its type in the UK,

:14:14.:14:16.

Developer John Broome has already rebranded and is revamping

:14:17.:14:20.

the former Crealy theme park near Wadebridge.

:14:21.:14:22.

Now planners have given him the go-ahead to turn these `cres

:14:23.:14:24.

of Cornish farmlands next door into what he says will be

:14:25.:14:27.

It is good for the staycation industry, brilliant for Cornwall,

:14:28.:14:34.

and it's a national-league, international-league facility.

:14:35.:14:43.

And Cornwall is going to have a very good time of it.

:14:44.:14:49.

The vision - more than 200 holiday lodges, a tropical pool,

:14:50.:14:53.

restaurants and activities centre, and claims of more

:14:54.:14:55.

But while most of the planndrs may have been convinced,

:14:56.:15:02.

worries from some living ne`rby about the reality of what it will

:15:03.:15:05.

There are a lot of people who think this will be economically vdry

:15:06.:15:12.

positive but equally a lot of residents are very concerned

:15:13.:15:16.

about the scale of the development, the visual impact, traffic lovements

:15:17.:15:21.

along very narrow lanes in this area, and the use of

:15:22.:15:24.

what is good-quality agricultural land over therd.

:15:25.:15:35.

And a mile or so down creek is this B restaurant where the

:15:36.:15:39.

Tomlinson family moved a few years ago from the Midlands.

:15:40.:15:41.

We moved down to Cornwall for the idyllic dream

:15:42.:15:43.

of being in the countryside, the peace and quiet.

:15:44.:15:45.

I think the environmental ilpact as well as the infrastructure, the

:15:46.:15:53.

roads can't support it. John Broome was behind an attempt to turn

:15:54.:15:57.

Battersea Power Station into a mini Las Vegas 30 years ago. Leaving

:15:58.:16:02.

County Hall today he says hd is confident this venture will proceed

:16:03.:16:07.

and things can get moving straightaway.

:16:08.:16:10.

Cream teas, pasties, cider, cheese, all food we're very famous

:16:11.:16:12.

for here in the South West, but what part do our culinary

:16:13.:16:15.

delights play in people's holiday experience?

:16:16.:16:18.

Well, apparently it can makd a huge difference to the way

:16:19.:16:21.

A new study has revealed the importance holidaymakers

:16:22.:16:24.

John Ayres has been to St Ives, where the study was carried out

:16:25.:16:34.

St Ives is a beautiful placd, with its beaches and its galleries,

:16:35.:16:37.

but now more and more the experience is becoming about food.

:16:38.:16:41.

Most of what is in this report I think as a tourism region

:16:42.:16:44.

we would have assumed anywax, but it does bring into sharp focus

:16:45.:16:47.

just how important food is to the local economy.

:16:48.:16:53.

40 years ago ice creams, fish and chips and pasties

:16:54.:16:55.

They're still popular now but the trend is towards good

:16:56.:17:02.

For decades Matthew Stevens has been providing

:17:03.:17:06.

We are selling spider crabs, we're selling the John Dorids

:17:07.:17:16.

Here in St Ives that was unheard of, 20, 30 years ago.

:17:17.:17:27.

You may have got cod and chhps and maybe plaice and chips `nd a few

:17:28.:17:31.

prawns and a cocktail but now we're looking at all sorts of seafood

:17:32.:17:34.

Over the years the cafes and restaurants have had to adapt.

:17:35.:17:36.

Visitors expect the food to be locally sourced.

:17:37.:17:38.

A lot of these people come from cities where they have a very

:17:39.:17:41.

big choice of very good restaurants, so when they come on holidax St Ives

:17:42.:17:45.

needs to supply places that can emulate some

:17:46.:17:47.

They talked about how they could sort of smell the pastries,

:17:48.:17:50.

they could see the fishing boats coming in, it was really

:17:51.:17:53.

They also talked about how they were willing to support

:17:54.:17:56.

the local businesses and they purposely avoided chain

:17:57.:17:58.

restaurants and any kind of restaurants that they

:17:59.:18:00.

Now, I would be the first to admit that perhaps I should eat a little

:18:01.:18:07.

bit less but when I'm on holiday, like most peopld,

:18:08.:18:09.

Straightaway you think, oh, we'll have a clotted cream tea

:18:10.:18:17.

when we come down here, and a pasty, so, yeah,

:18:18.:18:19.

we do like to eat a lot when we're on holiday.

:18:20.:18:22.

We don't want to appear as food snobs but it would probably put us

:18:23.:18:25.

off if it was all burgers and junk food.

:18:26.:18:31.

We're looking for more qualhty stuff and local produce and just taking

:18:32.:18:34.

the benefits of what you can get locally really.

:18:35.:18:36.

I think now there's far too many eating places down the front,

:18:37.:18:38.

it's changed from when I was last here 30 to 40 years ago,

:18:39.:18:42.

there used to be a lot of amusements, different

:18:43.:18:44.

Now it's just concentrated on eating and drinking places.

:18:45.:18:47.

The success of the food outlets passes right down

:18:48.:18:50.

the chain to the suppliers, farmers and fishermen.

:18:51.:18:52.

But while the report was very positive about the way it's

:18:53.:18:55.

going here it did warn that becoming too popular and not having

:18:56.:18:58.

the infrastructure to support it could have the opposite effdct.

:18:59.:19:08.

If you can't have nice food when you're on holiday, when can you

:19:09.:19:14.

2000 fossils discovered by an amateur collector in Dorset

:19:15.:19:17.

are going on display in a new museum purpose-built

:19:18.:19:20.

From crocodiles to previously unknown species,

:19:21.:19:23.

plumber Steve Etches has am`ssed what is now an internationally

:19:24.:19:25.

renowned collection of finds dating back 150 million years.

:19:26.:19:27.

Steve Etches was in short trousers when he found his first fossil, this

:19:28.:19:46.

tiny sea urchin in his back garden in Dorset. It is now on display

:19:47.:19:53.

amongst much grander finds hn the new museum which brings to life

:19:54.:20:06.

Jurassic Kimmeridge. It was a tropical sea, we have fish `nd

:20:07.:20:12.

animals interacting and somd of them predating. Steve is a plumbdr by

:20:13.:20:17.

trade but he has always found time for fossil collecting. He h`s

:20:18.:20:22.

discovered a host of new spdcies, like this it clear saw. It hs rather

:20:23.:20:31.

like a modern dolphin, he h`s pointy teeth. This is a juvenile btt under

:20:32.:20:38.

its rib cage it is stuffed full of food. Until now his collecthon was

:20:39.:20:41.

housed here, in his convertdd garage. Every art for -- artefact

:20:42.:20:48.

has now been taken down the road to its new home. It might sink in when

:20:49.:20:55.

everything is done and dustdd. I am sharing it with everything. You

:20:56.:21:00.

can't live forever so hopeftlly I am safeguarding it for the futtre. Some

:21:01.:21:07.

2000 fossils are already here and there is space for new finds,

:21:08.:21:11.

meaning Steve has no excuse for taking his work home with hhm.

:21:12.:21:14.

What are you going to do with your garage? My wife has some iddas, she

:21:15.:21:21.

has designed what she wants. Also the dining room, because it took

:21:22.:21:25.

over that. Hopefully we can invite some friends round for dinndr there

:21:26.:21:29.

now. His workshop is also bding moved to the museum so visitors can

:21:30.:21:34.

watch how he peels back the layers of time. This knowledge has earned

:21:35.:21:39.

him respect from academics worldwide, who have much to learn

:21:40.:21:44.

from a man who turned a hobby into a life's work.

:21:45.:21:46.

What an amazing collection. How much sleep did

:21:47.:21:48.

you get last night? We don't sleep at all, do wd?

:21:49.:22:01.

We don't get a lot of sleep, unfortunately.

:22:02.:22:02.

There are plenty of surveys warning of the dangers of a lack of sleep.

:22:03.:22:05.

And it seems one local univdrsity is taking them seriously.

:22:06.:22:08.

The chaplaincy at the University of St Mark

:22:09.:22:10.

and St John in Plymouth is helping weary students by

:22:11.:22:12.

But before you judge this move, or the students, take a look

:22:13.:22:17.

University life has changed, a more nine-to-five culture has

:22:18.:22:28.

developed as undergraduates pay fees to study here, so if they choose

:22:29.:22:31.

to sleep in the day, that's up to them, right?

:22:32.:22:34.

Well, that's what people here at Marjon think.

:22:35.:22:38.

Next to the university chapdl, a nap room has been set up

:22:39.:22:42.

for students to take snoozes between their studies.

:22:43.:22:44.

But is there really a need for this at university?

:22:45.:22:49.

A lot of people have this sdnse of students from the old daxs,

:22:50.:22:52.

The Young Ones and things lhke that, with students just lying around

:22:53.:22:55.

That could not be further from the truth these days.

:22:56.:22:58.

Students are often working laybe one, two, three jobs

:22:59.:23:02.

combined with their studies, plus family, so with the additional

:23:03.:23:07.

stresses of modern life, always being on with social media

:23:08.:23:10.

and mobile phones, actually the chance to take a break

:23:11.:23:13.

Nick wants his chaplaincy to be as relaxed as possible.

:23:14.:23:22.

The addition of the nap rool is an important part

:23:23.:23:24.

Students don't just do their degree and that's it,

:23:25.:23:34.

some of them belong to sports, some of them run societies.

:23:35.:23:39.

Me myself, I run the choir here at Marjon and I also do hockey

:23:40.:23:47.

as well so I'm constantly on the go, so...come in here, have a n`p,

:23:48.:23:51.

recharge your batteries and then go and do it again,

:23:52.:23:53.

It's a quirky idea but I was curious to find out just how

:23:54.:23:58.

I've been out reporting on the road all day and I could do

:23:59.:24:02.

Let's just hope BBC management are watching this.

:24:03.:24:13.

I quite like the idea of a hammock, actually.

:24:14.:24:28.

We have a nap room here, it's called the newsroom.

:24:29.:24:33.

Make sure you are not asleep by the time I come back to you. Thdre is

:24:34.:24:37.

some quite interesting weather for the next three or four days. First

:24:38.:24:42.

of all we have more mist forming, some fog patches first thing this

:24:43.:24:46.

morning, certainly some frost overnight tonight but once the mist

:24:47.:24:51.

clears it should be a nice day with some sunshine. There has bedn an

:24:52.:24:55.

east-west split with the sunshine today but the bigger satellhte

:24:56.:24:59.

picture shows the curl of cloud to the East, that is one area of low

:25:00.:25:03.

pressure which has hardly moved the 24 hours, but down here there is a

:25:04.:25:08.

new area of low pressure. Wd still have high pressure for the day

:25:09.:25:13.

tomorrow but by the time we get through tomorrow evening and

:25:14.:25:16.

Saturday into Sunday this area of low pressure becomes the dolinant

:25:17.:25:21.

feature. It will squeeze up against that high and squeeze the isobars,

:25:22.:25:26.

giving us afresh if not strong to gale force easterly wind by Sunday

:25:27.:25:30.

evening, and the potential for that to produce some outbreaks of rain

:25:31.:25:34.

but the timing is uncertain. Quite a contrast of weather types from one

:25:35.:25:40.

side of our patch to the other, glorious sunshine for a good part of

:25:41.:25:44.

Cornwall, rather grey for E`st Devon, Somerset and Dorset. A few

:25:45.:25:50.

spits of light rain even now but most of that will fade away

:25:51.:25:54.

overnight and in the small hours we will get some length lead clear

:25:55.:25:59.

skies, allowing the temperatures to drop pretty fast. -- some ldngthy.

:26:00.:26:04.

We could start tomorrow with not only mist and fog but also

:26:05.:26:09.

temperatures not far above freezing. For most of us away from thd coast

:26:10.:26:14.

there is a chance for some frost, maybe even on the car windscreens.

:26:15.:26:19.

Once we get rid of that and the mist and fog it is a nice day. The East

:26:20.:26:25.

of Devon has had stubborn cloud today but it is much more in the way

:26:26.:26:30.

of sunshine. Very light winds, not much to stir the air, so if you have

:26:31.:26:35.

some sunshine and avoid the mist and fog first thing in the mornhng you

:26:36.:26:39.

should have a pretty good d`y, 3 or 14 degrees. For the Isles of Scilly,

:26:40.:26:43.

fine and dry with spells of sunshine, very similar to the

:26:44.:26:48.

weather today. The times of high water, Portland, 10:49am, F`lmouth,

:26:49.:26:56.

9:33am. Lovely surfing condhtions today, the waves are not quhte so

:26:57.:27:00.

big tomorrow but still usable. On the north coast between thrde and

:27:01.:27:10.

five degrees and clean. There are the coastal waters forecast, force

:27:11.:27:15.

three to four from the south-east, generally fair with good visibility,

:27:16.:27:19.

and the outlook as we go through the weekend is more cloud, cert`inly a

:27:20.:27:25.

lot more on Sunday, a strong easterly breeze developing, maybe a

:27:26.:27:29.

bit quieter and the potenti`l overnight for some patchy r`in.

:27:30.:27:37.

Still awake? We stayed awake for all of that and

:27:38.:27:43.

I will have to stay awake a bit longer because I will be back for

:27:44.:27:45.

the late

:27:46.:27:46.
