Tonight - the four hospitals facing closure.

:00:00.:00:11.

It's been recommended that Ashburton, Bovey Tracey,

:00:12.:00:12.

Dartmouth and Paignton hospitals should be shut.

:00:13.:00:15.

I just cannot understand, with the pressure on

:00:16.:00:20.

Torbay Hospital, why they're closing Paignton beds.

:00:21.:00:23.

Also on the programme tonight, when did you last use the library?

:00:24.:00:26.

The question being posed in a consultation over

:00:27.:00:29.

whether to close 10 out of 17 in Plymouth.

:00:30.:00:32.

Preparing for the world of work - the new approach to help youngsters

:00:33.:00:35.

And chaos on the East Devon coast - the lessons learned from the Napoli

:00:36.:00:43.

First tonight a story which has been hotly debated on BBC radio Devon

:00:44.:01:18.

this week, and firmly defended by the council.

:01:19.:01:20.

Libraries - a place for people to borrow books,

:01:21.:01:23.

get online and seek advice, but a public consultation will start

:01:24.:01:25.

on Monday on whether to close 10 of Plymouth's 17 libraries.

:01:26.:01:30.

The local authority says it wants to expand its online services

:01:31.:01:32.

and invest in fewer, but better library buildings.

:01:33.:01:34.

Some critics have described the plans as short-sighted.

:01:35.:01:36.

Tracey Ullman pokes fun at the demise of the library due

:01:37.:01:50.

But there's no singing and dance here.

:01:51.:01:54.

Efford Library is one of ten which might close under new plans

:01:55.:01:57.

unveiled this week by Plymouth City Council.

:01:58.:01:59.

It's just down the road from High View primary School,

:02:00.:02:02.

where some of the pupils have decided to take action.

:02:03.:02:05.

Keen supporters of their local library, they've started

:02:06.:02:07.

I'm hoping that it's going to work because I know that lots of people

:02:08.:02:15.

really like that library, because it's not so

:02:16.:02:17.

The books really help to exercise your mind.

:02:18.:02:26.

When they see that we really like this library

:02:27.:02:29.

then they will say, "Let's not close this down.

:02:30.:02:33.

Let's keep it for the people who like this library."

:02:34.:02:37.

Award-winning children's author and illustrator

:02:38.:02:39.

He believes libraries are valuable places which shouldn't be lost.

:02:40.:02:48.

If we lose them, I think will be closing our horizons for children.

:02:49.:02:52.

Closing down possibilities for older people to have something

:02:53.:02:55.

The council argues smaller library buildings,

:02:56.:03:00.

like this one, can't offer the range of services it wants to provide.

:03:01.:03:03.

Our customers tell us they want help with IT skills.

:03:04.:03:06.

They want an opportunity to seek jobs.

:03:07.:03:08.

They want to be able to access council services,

:03:09.:03:11.

You simply can't do that if you haven't got

:03:12.:03:16.

There are places where people can meet and interact.

:03:17.:03:24.

They're the heart of every community in Plymouth,

:03:25.:03:26.

and when you take the library away you rip out the heart

:03:27.:03:29.

Plymouth City Council says it wants fewer but

:03:30.:03:34.

better equipped buildings - like its new Central Library.

:03:35.:03:36.

A public consultation starts on Monday.

:03:37.:03:38.

And you can see more on Libraries and other stories on this week's

:03:39.:03:44.

NHS bosses have recommended the closure of four cottage

:03:45.:03:58.

The decision came this afternoon after 12 weeks of consultation over

:03:59.:04:03.

the plans to shut Dartmouth, Paignton, Ashburton

:04:04.:04:05.

Hamish Marshall is at Paignton Hospital for us now.

:04:06.:04:17.

These plans were controversial when they were first raised. Now as we

:04:18.:04:27.

near a final decision. It was here in Paignton the public meetings were

:04:28.:04:31.

so busy that even the local MP could not get into them as people queued

:04:32.:04:37.

to try and save the hospitals. In short, Bovey Tracey, Paignton,

:04:38.:04:41.

Dartford and Ashford hospitals are too close. In total, that would mean

:04:42.:04:45.

around 60 beds affected. The body that will make that decision says

:04:46.:04:48.

people will still get a good level of care.

:04:49.:04:49.

There's a significant number of people currently

:04:50.:04:50.

in hospital who actually, if there were services again

:04:51.:04:53.

available in their community at home, would be able to get

:04:54.:04:55.

So the idea is that these proposals, by putting in the investment

:04:56.:04:59.

in services that will help those people, will enable those people

:05:00.:05:02.

to stay out of hospital and also to get home much quicker -

:05:03.:05:05.

which is what they've told us they want.

:05:06.:05:13.

Here in Paignton, x-rays and the minor injuries unit as well as the

:05:14.:05:19.

beds are going to go. The people here tonight he told me they're

:05:20.:05:22.

absolutely distraught at what looks as if it's not going to have to

:05:23.:05:26.

happen in this case. They're concerned that any plans put in will

:05:27.:05:28.

not work. And they talk about community care,

:05:29.:05:29.

but it's very poor at the moment. And district nurses particularly

:05:30.:05:34.

are really struggling, because they can't recruit

:05:35.:05:38.

and their caseloads A final decision on this is due to

:05:39.:05:54.

take place next Thursday. What we were told today were the

:05:55.:05:57.

recommendations ahead the CCG meeting. Already campaigners are

:05:58.:06:03.

trying to have one final protest - one of those will take place in

:06:04.:06:08.

Ashburton tomorrow. Hamish, thank you. E-mails of anger are already

:06:09.:06:11.

coming into us tomorrow here on Spotlight.

:06:12.:06:14.

All this week we've been reporting from inside our hospitals, as senior

:06:15.:06:17.

figures in the NHS try to deal with rising demand for services.

:06:18.:06:20.

Derriford began the year on the highest state of alert,

:06:21.:06:22.

meaning there were no more beds available and operations

:06:23.:06:24.

To round off our week of coverage Inside Our NHS,

:06:25.:06:28.

our reporter Kirk England has been given exclusive access behind

:06:29.:06:31.

the scenes as he followed the man who has to make the difficult

:06:32.:06:34.

decisions about who gets a bed and who doesn't.

:06:35.:06:36.

...Seven, eight, we've got nine patients in the emergency

:06:37.:06:39.

A lot of the pressure on the NHS comes down to one thing - numbers.

:06:40.:06:45.

And this is the man who's got to make it all add up.

:06:46.:06:50.

So in terms of capacity currently, how are we looking?

:06:51.:06:52.

Greg Dix has to make sure there are enough beds to treat

:06:53.:06:55.

So we've got a few extra trolleys today with nobody on them,

:06:56.:07:02.

It's just before nine o'clock and, after the busiest few weeks

:07:03.:07:07.

the hospital has ever had, today is beginning well.

:07:08.:07:10.

Even the football hasn't added to the pressure.

:07:11.:07:13.

Certainly this week appears to be a better week.

:07:14.:07:19.

We've had a relatively low attendances coming

:07:20.:07:22.

But, equally, the patients that are coming in are sicker patients.

:07:23.:07:28.

So they have been going into general beds within the hospital.

:07:29.:07:32.

Whilst it's quieter in the emergency department, the pressure

:07:33.:07:37.

is on in a ward down the corridor, where some patients are moved onto.

:07:38.:07:42.

This ward has 20 beds, and we have 20 patients here currently.

:07:43.:07:44.

So there will be ward rounds several times today,

:07:45.:07:48.

and there patient will be discharged to enable some capacity

:07:49.:07:51.

We've been allowed to film behind the scenes at the daily meetings,

:07:52.:08:04.

where key decisions about managing staff and

:08:05.:08:06.

We've got no capacity at the moment on an MAU.

:08:07.:08:10.

Bed availability within the cumulative there is one.

:08:11.:08:12.

We are awaiting two HSGs who are medically

:08:13.:08:15.

On a day-to-day basis we have four site meetings within the hospital

:08:16.:08:20.

on a minute by minute, hour by hour basis.

:08:21.:08:22.

Understanding which patients are coming in electively

:08:23.:08:25.

and non-electectively before surgery or emergency admissions.

:08:26.:08:27.

We have to balance that around beds that are available at any

:08:28.:08:30.

one time, and that's a really difficult decision.

:08:31.:08:33.

And sometimes a difficult decision can mean cancelling

:08:34.:08:36.

operations when services are stretched to capacity.

:08:37.:08:42.

The first two weeks after Christmas, from my experience,

:08:43.:08:45.

But I think we coped very well in terms of keeping patients safe.

:08:46.:08:51.

Today it feels much calmer, and patients are hopefully getting

:08:52.:08:53.

a much better experience of care when the hospital's back to normal.

:08:54.:09:00.

Greg Dix from Derriford Hospital ending that report by Kirk England.

:09:01.:09:03.

On to other news from around the region.

:09:04.:09:05.

Protestors in Cornwall trying to halt a new super quarry

:09:06.:09:07.

on the Lizard returned to the High Court today.

:09:08.:09:09.

They say there's been no assessment on the environmental impact

:09:10.:09:12.

of reopening Dean Quarry near St Keverne.

:09:13.:09:17.

Time's running out to register interest in becoming a firefighter

:09:18.:09:19.

A recruitment drive has been taking place for the first

:09:20.:09:24.

Young people in Cornwall are being failed when it

:09:25.:09:33.

comes to preparing them for the world of work.

:09:34.:09:36.

Schools took on responsibility for offering their own careers

:09:37.:09:38.

guidance in recent years, but that's been rated as the worst

:09:39.:09:41.

in the country at providing links with businesses.

:09:42.:09:43.

But now Cornwall's education and business worlds have come up

:09:44.:09:46.

with an idea to improve what's on offer.

:09:47.:09:48.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

:09:49.:09:55.

For teenagers these days, it might not always be used it forward.

:09:56.:10:03.

-- it might not always be straightforward.

:10:04.:10:06.

Research suggests that today's youngsters will have six careers

:10:07.:10:09.

and 17 jobs in the course of a lifetime.

:10:10.:10:12.

Have you guys got any idea yet on how you need

:10:13.:10:14.

These 14- and 15-year-olds at a Truro secondary school

:10:15.:10:18.

are preparing presentations under the watchful eye of Paul

:10:19.:10:20.

from Cornish cream company, Rodda's - the school's link

:10:21.:10:22.

Why is it important to learn about business?

:10:23.:10:27.

The idea is for the students to talk to a conference of business people

:10:28.:10:31.

and get more companies signed up to work in schools.

:10:32.:10:34.

Unless you choose business studies for GCSE, it's

:10:35.:10:38.

So you don't understand how you need to be in interviews

:10:39.:10:44.

and what you need to write on a CV, and things like that.

:10:45.:10:47.

It's not actually part of the national curriculum,

:10:48.:10:49.

So I think it is important to have opportunities

:10:50.:10:53.

like this, for children to learn about business.

:10:54.:10:56.

The more access they can have to people that are in business,

:10:57.:10:59.

and the more knowledge they can get from those people,

:11:00.:11:01.

the easier it is for them going into the workplace,

:11:02.:11:03.

Having someone like Paul partnered with the school is just part

:11:04.:11:08.

of a much wider push to improve the quality of careers

:11:09.:11:10.

As government-backed analysis reveals, it's the worst

:11:11.:11:14.

in the country at linking schools with local businesses.

:11:15.:11:19.

40% of employers and 16-18 -year-olds were poorly

:11:20.:11:22.

or very poorly prepared for the world of work.

:11:23.:11:24.

But only 30% of employers offered work experience.

:11:25.:11:28.

A teacher can stand at the front of the class and say it's really

:11:29.:11:32.

important to get a C, it's really important to get an A.

:11:33.:11:35.

But unless they've got the motivation or aspirations,

:11:36.:11:37.

it's very hard to get through to some students who aren't

:11:38.:11:40.

So having businesses available so all teachers can embed it

:11:41.:11:45.

The hope is by making sure there's a proper career

:11:46.:11:49.

strategy across Cornwall, more aspirations come true.

:11:50.:11:57.

Two women from Plymouth who managed to land ?50,000

:11:58.:12:00.

from the TV programme Dragons' Den say their business is booming.

:12:01.:12:02.

Rachel Day and Merry Whitaker appeared on the BBC Two programme

:12:03.:12:05.

on New Year's Day, asking for investment for their

:12:06.:12:14.

Johnny Rutherford went to see how the Dragons have helped them out.

:12:15.:12:26.

Hello. We run Love Keep Create. We're here today to ask you for

:12:27.:12:34.

?50,000 in return for a 10% equity share in our business.

:12:35.:12:38.

After a gruelling quiz of questions from the Dragons, the two Dragons

:12:39.:12:41.

managed to tempt Deborah Meade in. I'm going to make you an offer and

:12:42.:12:46.

following those words would be rude of me not to make you an offer on

:12:47.:12:49.

the basis that you've asked. I felt numb. I couldn't quite

:12:50.:12:54.

believe it. I felt like I want the next 20 minutes to go by really

:12:55.:12:57.

quickly just so we could say, yes, thank you, goodbye!

:12:58.:13:03.

The girls were mad business increments -- they run their

:13:04.:13:07.

business in Plymouth and turn old clothes into keepsake of toys and

:13:08.:13:10.

blankets. It's this big. I've brought my children's old clothes

:13:11.:13:14.

here. The day what they can make with ease. The business started

:13:15.:13:18.

after Rachel made a keep fit for her husband crafted from Bassong's baby

:13:19.:13:22.

grand when he was serving in Afghanistan -- crafted from their

:13:23.:13:26.

son noes baby grows. Now with the Dragon on board, businesses

:13:27.:13:30.

flourishing. Debra has been down here for a

:13:31.:13:34.

business meeting. She has met one of our team and the businesses

:13:35.:13:38.

flourishing. She has the great contacts are we which have helped us

:13:39.:13:41.

move on to the next part of the plan, if that makes sense.

:13:42.:13:47.

Being on the Dragons' Den, that helps us to plan and moving forward,

:13:48.:13:50.

knowing that we can take more people on permanent contracts.

:13:51.:13:55.

We have our dragon, and here is one for you.

:13:56.:13:59.

Fantastic! Plastic, brilliant. Thank you ever so much.

:14:00.:14:05.

Tens years ago, a major maritime disaster was unfolding.

:14:06.:14:07.

Later in the programme we'll look back at the grounding

:14:08.:14:09.

of the Napoli, and asking what lessons were learned.

:14:10.:14:12.

And memories from the man sent down on a helicopter

:14:13.:14:14.

Jay O'Donnell will be here to describe how all 26 people

:14:15.:14:20.

Jack Nowell and Henry Slade have both been included in England's

:14:21.:14:37.

34-man training squad for the upcoming

:14:38.:14:38.

Six Nations Championship, but hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie misses out.

:14:39.:14:40.

Nowell has been in fine form since his return from injury

:14:41.:14:43.

and stands a good chance of playing against France in two weeks' time.

:14:44.:14:46.

The Cornishman is being rested for this weekend's trip

:14:47.:14:48.

to Clermont Auvergne in the Champions Cup.

:14:49.:14:50.

The Chiefs must win and hope other results go their way to stand

:14:51.:14:53.

any chance of making it through to the last eight.

:14:54.:14:58.

If we go there and don't perform well than qualification,

:14:59.:15:00.

if it's even possible, it doesn't really matter.

:15:01.:15:02.

The important thing is we focus on our level of performance.

:15:03.:15:05.

That will drive us forward and give us an opportunity to qualify,

:15:06.:15:08.

or potentially make us a better team just by going out there and really

:15:09.:15:11.

Wins for the Cornish Pirates and Jersey in the British and

:15:12.:15:17.

Irish Cup tomorrow will most likely see them both through

:15:18.:15:20.

Meanwhile, Plymouth Albion are in National One league action

:15:21.:15:23.

The glamour of Premier League opposition in front of a packed

:15:24.:15:29.

house will be a distant memory for Plymouth Argyle when they return

:15:30.:15:33.

to League Two action against Cheltenham Town tomorrow.

:15:34.:15:35.

Elsewhere, Exeter City will be looking to extend their unbeaten run

:15:36.:15:38.

to nine games when they welcome Colchester to St James Park.

:15:39.:15:41.

Yeovil travel to Blackpool and in the National League,

:15:42.:15:43.

It's hard to believe this was ten years ago,

:15:44.:15:54.

but a decade on from the beaching of the MSC Napoli, authorities say

:15:55.:16:02.

the disaster was a "turning point" in how stricken

:16:03.:16:07.

You may remember the scenes where people searched

:16:08.:16:10.

through the many containers filled with cargo, which washed up

:16:11.:16:13.

Here's a reminder of the astounding sequence of events of a decade ago.

:16:14.:16:21.

But as every member of the crew was rescued,

:16:22.:16:25.

the nightmare of the MSC Napoli was only just beginning.

:16:26.:16:29.

With cracks in its hull, the ship had been listing badly

:16:30.:16:32.

since it got into difficulty 46 miles from the Cornish coast.

:16:33.:16:35.

The decision to turn to Portland was abandoned amid fears it

:16:36.:16:40.

would break up in the channel, threatening the world renowned

:16:41.:16:43.

Faced with limited choice, the vessel was beached

:16:44.:16:51.

in the relative calm of Lyme Bay, off Branscombe.

:16:52.:16:53.

The Devon shoreline never busier in January.

:16:54.:17:00.

Mile after mile littered the ship's containers and their cargo.

:17:01.:17:04.

Treasure hunters carried away what they could.

:17:05.:17:07.

Top of the range motorbikes, nappies and pet food

:17:08.:17:11.

As the biggest accident at sea at the time unfolded,

:17:12.:17:15.

Hundreds of people descend on this stretch of East Devon coastline

:17:16.:17:22.

to ponder the washed-up cargo of the Napoli.

:17:23.:17:26.

There was concern that thousands of tonnes of oil would leak out.

:17:27.:17:29.

The MSC Napoli was broken up in the end with explosives.

:17:30.:17:34.

It took 2.5 years before every scrap was recovered from the shoreline.

:17:35.:17:40.

Authorities both here and in France now work much more closely

:17:41.:17:44.

It may be the first and last time we see a bonanza on the beach.

:17:45.:17:52.

Adrian Campbell has been hearing from some of the people who helped

:17:53.:17:57.

Ten years on and John Hughes, a local fisherman, remembers

:17:58.:18:02.

all the flotsam and jetsam that washed ashore.

:18:03.:18:05.

Well, Branscombe will never, I hope not, see anything like that again.

:18:06.:18:08.

It put Branscombe on the map, without a shadow of a doubt.

:18:09.:18:11.

People from all over the world were ringing up saying,

:18:12.:18:15.

The Napoli and its cargo came ashore around the same time

:18:16.:18:26.

Now at schools, they're learning all about the ship

:18:27.:18:31.

I think people shouldn't have taken the items on the beach

:18:32.:18:36.

because some of them were other people's belongings.

:18:37.:18:38.

Other people might have wanted them back.

:18:39.:18:42.

Some got really sad because they saw their stuff being taken away

:18:43.:18:45.

Some people didn't want to take things because they found out

:18:46.:18:50.

that there was a toxic waste that might have spilt on everything.

:18:51.:18:53.

As well as concerns about chemicals, an oil spill killed birds

:18:54.:18:56.

It was only when it got a little bit darker that the atmosphere changed.

:18:57.:19:05.

There was quite a lot of characters starting to go down there.

:19:06.:19:09.

By the time we got back to the car park at the village hall,

:19:10.:19:13.

It's all so lovely to hear the children that were babies

:19:14.:19:26.

at the time reliving what their parents have told them,

:19:27.:19:28.

and it comes to life or them really as well.

:19:29.:19:31.

So with a good few days remembering it.

:19:32.:19:33.

The removal of the Napoli was a remarkable achievement.

:19:34.:19:35.

But it's a small detail that really stand out.

:19:36.:19:39.

Then there was the container full of Bibles.

:19:40.:19:47.

That was the only thing that was left on the beach at one time!

:19:48.:19:50.

I think they were in Swahili or something.

:19:51.:19:57.

Ten years ago, the 62,000-tonne Napoli ran aground

:19:58.:19:59.

Now ten years on all that remains here is the anchor -

:20:00.:20:04.

all 13.5 tonnes of it, a permanent reminder

:20:05.:20:07.

I remember standing on that beach as if it were yesterday.

:20:08.:20:23.

The ship got into trouble a couple of days before running aground.

:20:24.:20:25.

All 26 crew were winched from the decks in an operation

:20:26.:20:28.

involving two Seakings from RNAS Culdose.

:20:29.:20:30.

Royal Naval Airman Jay O'Donnell saw them all in safely and joins us now.

:20:31.:20:36.

Of course, we remember the beach pictures, as we've just seen. But

:20:37.:20:44.

you must remember that they are incredibly clearly. What was that

:20:45.:20:46.

rescue like in terms of what you've done? Well, it was really funny

:20:47.:20:51.

because I was due to go home. I finished my shift and we were all

:20:52.:20:54.

talking about the weather that was becoming a bit of an issue. We were

:20:55.:21:00.

going to train and we were talking, randomly, about Jackie in the sick

:21:01.:21:03.

bay with her lover daffodils. Then off we went. The other went and they

:21:04.:21:09.

said there was 26 people in the water 45 miles away. -- the other

:21:10.:21:14.

went. There was a surge of manpower. The first aircraft got ready. I went

:21:15.:21:19.

into the second aircraft with the diving kit and off we went with a

:21:20.:21:21.

bit of trepidation, but adrenaline is not white what scene greeted you

:21:22.:21:28.

-- what scene greeted you when you finally got to the location? It was

:21:29.:21:32.

fantastic and also quite awesome in the fact that the waves were just

:21:33.:21:35.

gigantic. I'd never seen the sea so angry. Amongst all the missions we

:21:36.:21:41.

had done, I couldn't believe it. 70 knots of wind and 40-50 foot waves.

:21:42.:21:46.

You got all the men off safely. There must have been some pretty

:21:47.:21:49.

hairy moments during that time? There were a few full of the hardest

:21:50.:21:55.

part was getting on the lifeboat. Securing it, I didn't have any

:21:56.:21:59.

communication. The guys didn't need any English so that hampered things.

:22:00.:22:03.

I carried on and what I knew I had to do, probably the main problem

:22:04.:22:07.

that I had I reflected on was that at one point as the lifeboat got

:22:08.:22:12.

pulled up the wave, before it flipped over the top, the winch

:22:13.:22:16.

wire, my lifeline as well, got caught around the metal guard rails.

:22:17.:22:20.

I had to climb up on top to release it. At that moment I really had to

:22:21.:22:25.

stop and think for a couple of seconds and just remember thinking,

:22:26.:22:31.

somebody's here, helping me, as it came off. I remember you talking

:22:32.:22:36.

about this previously when there was one more to take off, a large chap

:22:37.:22:39.

who wanted to do all of his belongings with him. How did that

:22:40.:22:45.

situation unfold? It was typical. As we got rid of most of the guys on

:22:46.:22:49.

the first aircraft, then the second aircraft, the lifeboat became

:22:50.:22:52.

unstable and was spinning as well as flipping over the waves. Typically,

:22:53.:22:58.

the largest man in the bed, who was six foot five and large, had his

:22:59.:23:02.

whole worldly belongings. He didn't speak English and really didn't want

:23:03.:23:05.

to let them go. I forcibly made him drop his bag and try to usher him

:23:06.:23:12.

out. He was really difficult. I think you are suffering quite a bit

:23:13.:23:16.

and he ended up going overboard in the rescue harness. I had to pull

:23:17.:23:20.

him back on the ship. And you're still in the well maybe, we can see.

:23:21.:23:25.

Love it, still flying in Merlin Mark two now daily. I'm testing in my job

:23:26.:23:34.

and it's fantastic. We are really busy. We will never forget it. Jay,

:23:35.:23:39.

good to see you after all these years. Thank you for coming in.

:23:40.:23:41.

You may remember a few weeks ago we met Danny Claricoates,

:23:42.:23:44.

who was part of a team taking part in a charity challenge to scale

:23:45.:23:47.

Well, the good news is that Danny and his fell

:23:48.:23:52.

The two former Commandos, who both served in Afghanistan,

:23:53.:23:56.

reached the sumit of Mount Vinson with their team mates

:23:57.:23:58.

The boys are now in Chile awaiting a flight home.

:23:59.:24:06.

Well done to them. We can remember clearly what the weather was like

:24:07.:24:12.

ten years ago. Not quite so called this weekend, I hope?

:24:13.:24:17.

Very different. It with a howling westerly gale on the day of the

:24:18.:24:22.

accident. It looks like we will continue to see this dry but cold

:24:23.:24:26.

weather. There are some subtle changes coming this weekend, a bit

:24:27.:24:29.

:25:21.:25:22.

Thereafter it begins to move away again. This is the beautiful Sunday

:25:23.:25:26.

and by Monday the high pressure comes back. For many of us today,

we've had glorious, unbroken sunshine. Earlier today myself and
