On Spotlight tonight: There is continuing coverages of the

A warning that some coastal resorts are not doing enough

:00:00.:00:07.

Transforming the speed in which prostate cancer is diagnosed.

:00:08.:00:13.

Derriford Hospital unveils a new scanner, one of two available

:00:14.:00:16.

Slipping on the ice, should councils be gritting cycle paths?

:00:17.:00:35.

I slammed into the railings and answer the tarmac. I've got very

:00:36.:00:42.

bruised shoulder. And coming up, I try sport that has

:00:43.:00:47.

its origins in the far east that it has become big hit in the far West.

:00:48.:01:06.

One of the UK's most senior tourism officials says

:01:07.:01:08.

the South West could do more to attract younger visitors.

:01:09.:01:12.

The Chief Executive of Visit Britain Sally Balcombe

:01:13.:01:15.

was speaking in Devon following a new national survey

:01:16.:01:17.

of under 35s which found some had never been to our coastline,

:01:18.:01:20.

With large surfing events such as Boardmasters,

:01:21.:01:27.

the South West is already bringing in a new generation of tourists

:01:28.:01:30.

but it's thought the adventure market could deliver many more.

:01:31.:01:33.

Kirk England reports on challenges of tapping into a younger market.

:01:34.:01:42.

They may be the old days but that people were young. Many of them

:01:43.:01:49.

anyway. Generation some tourist hotspots are struggling to attract

:01:50.:01:55.

now. You have to remember this is the competitive landscape, they have

:01:56.:01:58.

lots of choices, they are the generation that get on planes and

:01:59.:02:02.

fine beaches elsewhere. You have to remember we have a big job to do to

:02:03.:02:08.

attack them. We are doing well but a lot more could be done.

:02:09.:02:13.

The attraction to some is obvious. But is it he surprised that some

:02:14.:02:16.

younger people are giving our coastline amis? It surprises me. But

:02:17.:02:23.

in some ways it doesn't surprise me because you can go to places

:02:24.:02:27.

cheaper. That's our warmer. With better weather. There are part of

:02:28.:02:32.

the south-west do attract younger visitors, this stretch of the North

:02:33.:02:35.

Devon coastline is incredibly popular with surfers but that is the

:02:36.:02:39.

problem. National research shows amongst the end of 35 is, there is

:02:40.:02:45.

still a perception of the English coastline as being old-fashioned,

:02:46.:02:48.

expensive and bit naff. Over time I'm sure there have been times where

:02:49.:02:52.

they have been to places that haven't been great. You see the

:02:53.:02:56.

investment that has been going into places like Torquay and Torbay, Link

:02:57.:03:01.

Road has been put in. These are great places to go now. All the

:03:02.:03:06.

great chefs we have on the coast. If we can get them down we can show

:03:07.:03:12.

them just how good it is. And this is what the south-west has to offer.

:03:13.:03:16.

Both pieces from the national coastal tourism Academy shows to

:03:17.:03:22.

Luzon businesses here should also be offering more shorter breaks where

:03:23.:03:25.

visitors can have adventures, new experiences and fun. A crucial

:03:26.:03:31.

market that we need to take advantage of according to experts.

:03:32.:03:36.

We need to make sure we don't lose this generation, they come now and

:03:37.:03:39.

experiences when they are older and have children or in their later

:03:40.:03:43.

years, they have in astrologer for the coast that brings them back. --

:03:44.:03:49.

nostalgic. Times have changed since these pictures were filmed in St

:03:50.:03:54.

Ives. Many people are hoping we can head back to the heyday where every

:03:55.:03:58.

generation enjoyed seaside holiday in the south-west.

:03:59.:04:00.

A machine which will transform how quickly prostate cancer is diagnosed

:04:01.:04:04.

is about to go into operation at Derriford Hospital.

:04:05.:04:07.

It's one of the most advanced scanners in the country and has been

:04:08.:04:10.

paid for by the Chestnut Appeal Charity.

:04:11.:04:12.

It's cost just over ?100,000 and will allow

:04:13.:04:15.

consultants to make fast and accurate assessments meaning

:04:16.:04:19.

In a moment I'll be talking to Paul Hunter Campbell, a consultant

:04:20.:04:23.

urologist from Derriford Hospital, but first this

:04:24.:04:26.

Being unveiled at Derriford Hospital, the most up to date

:04:27.:04:34.

diagnostic technology for prostate cancer in the country.

:04:35.:04:41.

It's only one of two machines available on the NHS.

:04:42.:04:44.

What this machine very cleverly does is merge two images, an ultrasound

:04:45.:04:47.

That enable surgeons to see more accurately the type of cancer they

:04:48.:04:52.

In men, prostate cancer is most common cancer.

:04:53.:04:57.

Every year, around 47,000 cases are diagnosed in the UK and it leads

:04:58.:05:02.

Without this new machine, patients face numerous

:05:03.:05:07.

biopsies, like Glyn Collis from Plymouth.

:05:08.:05:11.

They take eight to ten needle samples and I had 5% cancer

:05:12.:05:16.

What this wonderful machine will do, and this is me as

:05:17.:05:21.

a layman saying this, they will look up there and this

:05:22.:05:24.

will go in 3-D colour and it will see and it will matchup

:05:25.:05:29.

The money to buy what called the Ultrasound-MRI Fusion machine

:05:30.:05:35.

has been raised by people around Devon.

:05:36.:05:39.

Five years ago, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and after that

:05:40.:05:43.

with the Mega Ride and everything, we do collect lots of money.

:05:44.:05:49.

It'll bring the message home to a lot of men as well,

:05:50.:05:53.

there are things we need to check as well.

:05:54.:05:56.

We're just trying to give back to the community.

:05:57.:06:00.

As soon as we heard about the cause, the effect it can have on people's

:06:01.:06:03.

lives, we were straight in to try and jump on it.

:06:04.:06:06.

The plan now is to have more Fusion machines available on the NHS

:06:07.:06:12.

in the region at Exeter, Torbay and Truro.

:06:13.:06:14.

Jane Chandler BBC Spotlight, Plymouth.

:06:15.:06:15.

And joining me now is consultant urologist Paul Hunter Campbell.

:06:16.:06:23.

How much of the difference will this can make to prostate cancer

:06:24.:06:28.

treatment? It'll make great difference. You

:06:29.:06:32.

heard on the media week or so ago that MRI scans has improved vastly.

:06:33.:06:37.

We can use that to see prostate cancer. They might be surprised to

:06:38.:06:40.

note this is the first time we have been able to use is gamma to

:06:41.:06:45.

visualise it. Previously to that we have had their random biopsy the

:06:46.:06:53.

prostate to locate the cancer. This machine uses the ultrasound which

:06:54.:06:58.

answers target the biopsy and the MRI scan, fuses them together in

:06:59.:07:02.

three-dimensional pattern so we can like scan through the MRI and biopsy

:07:03.:07:07.

the appropriate areas. It is going to make a quicker diagnosis, less

:07:08.:07:11.

biopsies for those who have less significant cancer. There aren't

:07:12.:07:16.

many of them in the UK so where does this but there in terms of the

:07:17.:07:20.

forefront of treatment? This is the first run of this type

:07:21.:07:24.

of machine in the country. There are another couple being important. We

:07:25.:07:29.

are looking to move the south-west to the forefront of this by

:07:30.:07:33.

installing more machines in the upcoming months, one at Tiverton and

:07:34.:07:38.

another one in Torbay and another one into risk. We saw in the report

:07:39.:07:45.

how support the fundraising has received but more fundraising will

:07:46.:07:48.

go on. What you tell those people who have worked so hard to raise the

:07:49.:07:52.

money? Great thanks. What is so

:07:53.:07:55.

heart-warming is it has been a community effort. People of the

:07:56.:08:00.

local area coming together to raise money, a lot of them have been touch

:08:01.:08:05.

by prostate cancer themselves or a relative and they have gone to great

:08:06.:08:09.

lengths, great endeavour to raise lots of money, climbing Kilimanjaro,

:08:10.:08:14.

doing white-water swimming in order to raise money for this to buy this

:08:15.:08:19.

amazing machine. We have more of the same going on this year, please feel

:08:20.:08:23.

free to join us for a wild swim. You can log in online and bulky selfie

:08:24.:08:30.

place. We must leave it there but thank you very much for coming in.

:08:31.:08:33.

And thank you very much to everyone who raised the money.

:08:34.:08:36.

The round-up of some other news in the south-west.

:08:37.:08:39.

A former NHS chief in Devon and Cornwall has pleaded guilty

:08:40.:08:41.

to lying about his qualifications to obtain the chairmanships of two

:08:42.:08:44.

63-year-old Jon Andrewes from Flood Street in Totnes misled

:08:45.:08:47.

NHS appointments boards before being chosen to chair trusts

:08:48.:08:49.

in South Devon in 2007 and the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust in 2015.

:08:50.:08:57.

A group which supports young gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender

:08:58.:09:01.

people in Somerset will carry on running for another year.

:09:02.:09:04.

2BU had been facing closure after the County Council

:09:05.:09:06.

said it would be ending its contract with them.

:09:07.:09:09.

But now, the council has given the group a one-year grant instead.

:09:10.:09:14.

Four more Dorset councils have voted in favour of plans

:09:15.:09:16.

for the county to be carved up into two unitary authorities.

:09:17.:09:20.

Dorset county, Weymouth and Portland, West and North Dorset

:09:21.:09:22.

districts all voted in support of the change.

:09:23.:09:24.

Poole Council also voted for the move on Tuesday.

:09:25.:09:26.

Dorset's other councils will vote by the end of next week.

:09:27.:09:29.

If the new structure is approved, it would go ahead from April 2019.

:09:30.:09:32.

Hundreds of people are expected at Exeter Cathedral tomorrow

:09:33.:09:34.

for a special memorial service remembering BBC Radio Devon

:09:35.:09:36.

presenter Tony Beard, who died a year ago.

:09:37.:09:38.

Tony, known as the Wag from Widecombe, broadcast

:09:39.:09:40.

on the station for 30 years, and many of his loyal

:09:41.:09:43.

listeners are expected to be amongst the congregation.

:09:44.:09:49.

Grit pavements and cycle tracks in the same way as roads -

:09:50.:09:52.

that's the call from cyclists in Exeter after icy conditions this

:09:53.:09:56.

week led to a number of riders comings off their bikes.

:09:57.:09:59.

One took to social media saying they were going over like ninepins.

:10:00.:10:01.

But as Hamish Marshall reports, the Council says it can't afford

:10:02.:10:04.

to treat any more areas than it currently does.

:10:05.:10:11.

Tuesday's ride to work, cold and frosty.

:10:12.:10:14.

So much so that Bridget Walton's headcam became steamed up

:10:15.:10:18.

but that was the least of her problems as

:10:19.:10:21.

I slammed into these railings and then down

:10:22.:10:27.

I have got a very bruised shoulder and a bloddied knee and a few

:10:28.:10:33.

Bridget was using one of Exeter's designated cycle routes.

:10:34.:10:38.

6% of journeys here are by bike, the national average is 2%.

:10:39.:10:43.

And it has bridges like this one costing more than ?5 million.

:10:44.:10:48.

But Devon County Council doesn't go as far as gritting the

:10:49.:10:52.

It says that is in line with what other councils

:10:53.:10:57.

It says it is simply a matter of prioritising its

:10:58.:11:02.

But that's not good enough for Bridget.

:11:03.:11:05.

I think with a little imagination, for example, taking people

:11:06.:11:07.

who do the litter picking and allocating them three days

:11:08.:11:10.

before cold snaps are anticipated to spread salt.

:11:11.:11:12.

It could be done with very limited use of additional resources.

:11:13.:11:16.

That solution may cause problems as litter pickers work

:11:17.:11:21.

for the city council not the county which is repsonsible

:11:22.:11:24.

But would people like resources diverted to cycle and shared paths?

:11:25.:11:29.

I do like to cycle and that would be handy.

:11:30.:11:37.

But, yes, they could probably spend the money on better things.

:11:38.:11:41.

I think it would because I saw somebody coming off their bike.

:11:42.:11:44.

They were cutting in and the tyers went,

:11:45.:11:47.

There's no doubt cycling is popular here in Exeter for leisure

:11:48.:11:51.

So what advice do experts who hire bikes give?

:11:52.:11:57.

If we know it is dangerous and we know there is

:11:58.:12:00.

particular spots, we would advise against those.

:12:01.:12:02.

Obviously, the cycle paths along here are traffic free

:12:03.:12:07.

and are extremely inviting but if we now there are dangerous

:12:08.:12:10.

spots, we would advise cycling on those.

:12:11.:12:11.

Campaigners say other countries have reduced the

:12:12.:12:14.

dangers of ice and cycling cuts traffic and pollution

:12:15.:12:18.

and it is healthy so long as you don't fall off.

:12:19.:12:27.

In a moment we'll have all the sport for you.

:12:28.:12:29.

We'll also meet a paper boy in his 70s.

:12:30.:12:32.

David Rickard gives all his wages to charity,

:12:33.:12:34.

the most recent to benefit from his round - the RNLI.

:12:35.:12:43.

The pull of cold air over us and Europe is about to be replaced by an

:12:44.:12:51.

very much milder air coming in from the south-west. By Sunday, we could

:12:52.:12:55.

have temperatures up to 11 or 12 degrees.

:12:56.:12:57.

One of the first Nature Schools in the country could be

:12:58.:13:00.

The Devon Wildlife Trust says it wants to develop a different type

:13:01.:13:04.

of learning for 3-11 year olds as part of the Government's

:13:05.:13:07.

But it's not the only group wanting to establish

:13:08.:13:10.

a new school in the town as our Environment Correspondent

:13:11.:13:13.

Outdoor learning can inspire children.

:13:14.:13:21.

If everyone goes down to that end and stands together.

:13:22.:13:25.

The Devon Wildlife Trust is already working with a school in Exeter

:13:26.:13:31.

where staff say they value the idea of buidling nature and

:13:32.:13:34.

You see them talking to completely different friendship groups that

:13:35.:13:42.

You see, particularly the girls, being adventurous.

:13:43.:13:45.

You see the boys taking risks and I think that is a

:13:46.:13:48.

These children enjoy outdoor lessons but what do they

:13:49.:13:52.

I want to know why the birds have been hiding and

:13:53.:13:58.

Because it is nice to have fresh air.

:13:59.:14:14.

The Wildlife Trust wants to set up one of the

:14:15.:14:16.

These are schools which can be set up by groups such as charities,

:14:17.:14:21.

They're funded by central government but don't have

:14:22.:14:25.

to follow the national curriculum and are independent

:14:26.:14:27.

The Trust says nature helps teach subjects such as maths and science.

:14:28.:14:34.

There's no subject that you can't teach with the help of the

:14:35.:14:37.

You can teach it outside, you can take a subject

:14:38.:14:40.

like science and look at the structure of the flower

:14:41.:14:42.

or a leaf and you can teach basic principles of geometry along that.

:14:43.:14:46.

There's at least one other proposal for

:14:47.:14:48.

It involves a partnership to establish a Church of England

:14:49.:14:52.

That too would have strong emphasis on outdoor education.

:14:53.:14:58.

There is a lot of stuff on our doorstep here which we should

:14:59.:15:04.

A lot of kids round here have an outdoor lifestyle so I suppose

:15:05.:15:08.

But critics say why does the new school have

:15:09.:15:11.

I think it's a wonderful idea that they want to

:15:12.:15:15.

work with schools but there is no reason why it has to be a free

:15:16.:15:19.

It would be wonderful actually if they could

:15:20.:15:22.

work closely with local authority schools anyway and get parents and

:15:23.:15:25.

Outdoor learning is a growing trend and whether its's provided

:15:26.:15:31.

by the Devon Wildlife Trust or some other provider, it seems more

:15:32.:15:34.

children could soon be learning outdoors in Okehampton.

:15:35.:15:38.

Now, if you see smoke coming from Plymouth's Civic Centre

:15:39.:15:45.

and a huge emergency response this Sunday, don't be alarmed

:15:46.:15:48.

It's one of the largest ever held in Devon and will see 150 fire

:15:49.:15:54.

fighters involved in tackling a simulated blaze

:15:55.:15:56.

It's to help test the procedures for dealing with fires

:15:57.:16:00.

in the region's increasing number of high rise buildings.

:16:01.:16:04.

It was the biggest fire to hit postwar Plymouth.

:16:05.:16:11.

Since then the city's skyline has only gone one way and that is up.

:16:12.:16:18.

As the buildings get taller, the challenges for the

:16:19.:16:21.

If you have a look round our major cities around the

:16:22.:16:27.

country especially in the south-west, we are having more and

:16:28.:16:29.

more high-rise buildings being built.

:16:30.:16:31.

Normally for student accommodation, high-rise flats, so we need

:16:32.:16:35.

to be prepared and aware of the internal structures of

:16:36.:16:39.

Plymouth today looks skywards as well as seawords for the

:16:40.:16:45.

new council house and municipal offices are as up-to-the-minute

:16:46.:16:49.

At 14 floors, the Civic Centre used to be the city's tallest building.

:16:50.:16:56.

It has stood empty for a couple of years but this weekend it'll be

:16:57.:17:00.

the centre of the largest fire drill staged in Devon.

:17:01.:17:05.

If you can imagine coming into here, the breathing

:17:06.:17:07.

apparatus crews first come into, it is going to be dark,

:17:08.:17:09.

Fireman Steve Anderson has been working on

:17:10.:17:14.

turning the building into every firefighter's worst nightmare.

:17:15.:17:19.

We have a few surprises in store but I'm sure they will be able

:17:20.:17:23.

to cope with anything that is thrown at them on the day.

:17:24.:17:26.

So, on Sunday morning smoke will billow down these empty

:17:27.:17:29.

corridors, sirens will sound, actors will scream and fire crews

:17:30.:17:33.

from as far as Yeovil feel and Bridgwater

:17:34.:17:36.

There you go, if you are passing by here at 10:30am on Sunday morning

:17:37.:17:41.

and you see smoke billowing from the Civic Centre don't

:17:42.:17:44.

It's time for the sport now and Andy's here.

:17:45.:17:57.

Exeter City are doing OK, aren't they?

:17:58.:17:59.

A little over two months ago Exeter City were

:18:00.:18:03.

rock bottom of League Two, but a run of nine games

:18:04.:18:06.

without defeat has put them on the brink of the play-off places.

:18:07.:18:09.

Tomorrow, the Grecians have another chance to gain ground on one

:18:10.:18:12.

of the teams above them when they travel to Portsmouth.

:18:13.:18:16.

We haven't done anything different on the training ground, we haven't

:18:17.:18:18.

We were fine before, we weren't that bad before.

:18:19.:18:24.

We were losing games but we weren't conceding that many

:18:25.:18:27.

We were not playing that badly, we weren't making the difference.

:18:28.:18:34.

There's no game for second-placed Plymouth Argyle this week

:18:35.:18:36.

as their opponents Blackpool are in the FA Cup action.

:18:37.:18:39.

Yeovil could do them a favour at Huish Park though

:18:40.:18:41.

by beating Doncaster, the side at the top of League Two.

:18:42.:18:44.

Torquay host Gateshead in the Conference.

:18:45.:18:48.

One cup competition may be over for the Exeter Chiefs

:18:49.:18:50.

with their exit from Europe, but they're still in the mix

:18:51.:18:53.

However, the Cornish Pirates find themselves without a game this

:18:54.:18:58.

weekend after London Welsh were expelled from the Championship.

:18:59.:19:01.

However, there was some good news for one Pirate this week

:19:02.:19:04.

as Tyler Gendall jumped ship and joined Premiership

:19:05.:19:06.

The 22-year-old prop started his rugby career in St Ives

:19:07.:19:10.

and leaves the Mennaye after three seasons with the club's blessing.

:19:11.:19:15.

For him to kick on and go up to Harlequins, everybody has been

:19:16.:19:18.

In terms from a coaching perspective, it is lovely

:19:19.:19:25.

to see a young Cornish lad do so well.

:19:26.:19:27.

For him to go from loosehead to tighthead is no mean feat.

:19:28.:19:30.

He has achieved that this year and I wish him the best

:19:31.:19:33.

Now onto something a little bit different.

:19:34.:19:38.

East meets West in one of the more unlikely settings -

:19:39.:19:40.

The Cornwall Kendo Club is always on the look out

:19:41.:19:46.

for new recruits so I thought I'd go and meet their world-renowned

:19:47.:19:49.

instructor Fujii Sensei, who first brought the sport

:19:50.:19:51.

This was life for a warrior in the Far East.

:19:52.:20:09.

Today in the far West the knowledge and traditions

:20:10.:20:12.

Fujii Sensei first picked up a 'shinai' as a six-year-old

:20:13.:20:18.

It is the longest martial art in Japan, Samurai warriors used to

:20:19.:20:33.

fight it. Sam Dyke disciplines adding here.

:20:34.:20:33.

The sport became a hit in Cornwall when this man returned from Japan

:20:34.:20:36.

It is admittedly tricky word because it has many layers of meaning. It is

:20:37.:20:50.

connected to Zen. Therefore, it is connected to self-development and

:20:51.:20:56.

perhaps enlightenment. But what that means, I am not quite sure because I

:20:57.:20:58.

am not there myself yet! So what keeps those

:20:59.:21:00.

at the start of their journey Sometimes it is the competitiveness

:21:01.:21:09.

and the pure energy you can find in other people.

:21:10.:21:14.

You have to want to try it at some point. If there is something in it

:21:15.:21:18.

for you you will find it and you will keep it.

:21:19.:21:20.

Self-enlightenment and personal development

:21:21.:21:22.

Speed, stamina and strength. You get weaker after 50. That is

:21:23.:21:37.

encouraging, I am nowhere near 50. Honest!. I know he's in his 70s but

:21:38.:21:44.

I thought he would be tougher this. I practice and daisy week. Six hours

:21:45.:21:51.

day, morning, afternoon and evening. I train, train and train. Time to

:21:52.:21:57.

bow out. Thank you for that. While I still can.

:21:58.:22:02.

He was seriously quick. When I had a proper go, he was so fast and he

:22:03.:22:08.

hits me three times before I knew it.

:22:09.:22:13.

He was playing with me like cat and mouse.

:22:14.:22:18.

You have had quite week. I got beaten in table tennis by an

:22:19.:22:19.

94-year-old woman on Monday. Now, a man from Devon has been

:22:20.:22:21.

given a personal thanks for donating his entire

:22:22.:22:24.

wage to charity. Over the years, David Rickard has

:22:25.:22:26.

raised thousands of pounds Yes, the loyal fundraiser has walked

:22:27.:22:29.

hundreds of miles working as a paperboy in East Devon

:22:30.:22:33.

and as Eleanor Parkinson reports 77-year-old David Rickard handing

:22:34.:22:37.

over yet another cheque. This time for ?1,500

:22:38.:22:47.

to the RNLI and the crew So how does he raise

:22:48.:22:50.

so much money on his own? Easy,

he became a paperboy. I am also doing a magazine

:22:54.:22:56.

:22:57.:23:02.

from those activities I donate to a Cornish

:23:03.:23:07.

charity in memory of my Over the past ten years

:23:08.:23:13.

David has walked hundreds of miles to raise more almost

:23:14.:23:20.

?15,000 for seven Cornish charities including the RNLI,

be used to help build The old one is so small there

is barely enough room for the crew It is three times he has been down

:23:33.:23:37.

and presented us with cheques. It is an amazing story,

:23:38.:23:43.

he is such a kind bloke. Hopefully, it'll make a big

:23:44.:23:45.

difference to our new station. We will have better facilities

:23:46.:23:48.

for crew training, there will be a visitor experience,

:23:49.:23:51.

we will have showers and So how do you repay such

:23:52.:23:55.

a loyal fundraiser? With tea and homemade

:23:56.:24:01.

cakes of course. What lovely story. It has been

:24:02.:24:17.

chilly on the paper round this weekend. What has the weekend got in

:24:18.:24:18.

store? Good evening. It looks like we will

:24:19.:24:29.

have milder weather this week. Less of the clear sky because that is an

:24:30.:24:34.

awful lot of cloud covering is. This is the fantastic photograph sent in

:24:35.:24:39.

by one of our weather watchers. Doesn't that look spectacular? Not

:24:40.:24:43.

such good few of the stars tonight. It is milder but there will be some

:24:44.:24:47.

showers around tomorrow, some persistent rain on Sunday. Let's

:24:48.:24:53.

show you the set up at the moment. We've got cloud covering France,

:24:54.:24:57.

Spain and Portugal and that is giving as the rain at the moment. At

:24:58.:25:01.

that the gap on and is cloud out here is the day's whether through

:25:02.:25:08.

the weekend. This cloud out here is Sunday's whether. We do see some

:25:09.:25:15.

rain overnight. It is starting to introduce the slightly less cold air

:25:16.:25:18.

and eventually temperatures will reach double figures as we move

:25:19.:25:23.

through the day tomorrow. The ridge of high pressure that comes our way

:25:24.:25:26.

tomorrow will give us some sunshine, a risk of the few showers and then

:25:27.:25:30.

this weather front arrives and that brings heavy rain across as, windy

:25:31.:25:34.

conditions but temperatures back up to around 11. Closer look at that

:25:35.:25:39.

satellite picture shows you the great we have seen so far today.

:25:40.:25:43.

Some of the show was in the west have been thundery, there is more to

:25:44.:25:46.

come. You will notice brighter colours developing, that is rain.

:25:47.:25:51.

Before that arrived, it has been very murky today.

:25:52.:26:02.

Unfortunately, there wasn't much blue in the sky today compared to

:26:03.:26:06.

yesterday. It has been eight Craig David. Eight cold day and they are

:26:07.:26:12.

made of strong stuff here. On the beach this afternoon in the kind of

:26:13.:26:16.

wind we have seen today, that has been quite brave. Through the

:26:17.:26:20.

weekend, it is getting warmer. It is going to take its time. That is the

:26:21.:26:26.

rain we have tonight. The list eight clearance of that across west or

:26:27.:26:29.

not. Here, some of the lowest temperatures down to three or 4

:26:30.:26:33.

degrees. We can't rule out the possibility of frosts. Tomorrow,

:26:34.:26:39.

we've got some sunshine and some showers. The showers coming on and

:26:40.:26:45.

one of two of those heavy. Atop the visual summary of eight or 9

:26:46.:26:54.

degrees. For the Isles of Scilly, early showers and then mostly fine

:26:55.:26:59.

and dry. Westerly winds. Times of high water. And for our servers,

:27:00.:27:11.

most of the beaches will be messy but some big waves. The coastal

:27:12.:27:14.

waters forecast, the forecast for Sunday and Monday.

:27:15.:27:18.

It is milder. But rather wet. I prefer the cold, dry weather. That

:27:19.:27:37.

is it from us. Do have a lovely weekend. Thanks for your company.

:27:38.:27:38.

Take care. We know you understand the risks

:27:39.:27:52.

associated with your pregnancy. Because I'm smaller, people think

:27:53.:27:54.

my hopes are not so great. You know what it's like when

:27:55.:27:57.

help is needed. You just jump in. Are you saying that

:27:58.:28:06.

he's stalking you now?

:28:07.:28:20.
