Welcome to Spotlight. so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:00.

Tonight: Are free bus passes to blame for cuts

:00:00.:00:07.

Busy services are facing the axe - the cost of concessionary

:00:08.:00:11.

passes for older people is being partly blamed.

:00:12.:00:14.

We'll assess the potential impact on those who use the services.

:00:15.:00:19.

Plans for the most-flooded town in the country.

:00:20.:00:22.

This is the most important decision people in our town can make -

:00:23.:00:25.

in the last 50 years and then 50 years into our future.

:00:26.:00:31.

But will these multi-million pound flood protection plans be the answer

:00:32.:00:36.

We look back at a catalogue of flooding events.

:00:37.:00:40.

The hidden cost of parking - motorists baffled because

:00:41.:00:42.

the charges are completely obscured by the ticket machine.

:00:43.:00:46.

Before, the prices were on the top and anyone could see them,

:00:47.:00:49.

but now it is very, very difficult, so I'm afraid the council have made

:00:50.:00:53.

And the lovers lured by the lamp - the Somerset tradition

:00:54.:00:59.

which could be extinguished unless a new lighter is found.

:01:00.:01:22.

It's being described as another blow to public

:01:23.:01:25.

Tonight there's anger at plans to cut more bus routes,

:01:26.:01:29.

Local Link has confirmed its axing 11 routes, blaming increased

:01:30.:01:35.

overheads and a fall in the amount of money it gets when people travel

:01:36.:01:39.

The cuts will leave some areas of Torbay with no regular service

:01:40.:01:45.

and local people fear they will be cut off.

:01:46.:01:47.

Here's our south Devon reporter John Ayres.

:01:48.:01:53.

Local Link run some of the more awkward routes around South Devon,

:01:54.:01:56.

Many of these services link residential areas

:01:57.:02:00.

with the hospital and supermarket, making them highly valued

:02:01.:02:04.

by their users, especially among those who find it difficult

:02:05.:02:07.

The number 25 serves the village of Stoke Gabriel.

:02:08.:02:14.

42 buses a week to Paignton will go altogether.

:02:15.:02:16.

My husband has got a car but we don't use it all the time,

:02:17.:02:20.

because he has got MS, and this is my only access way

:02:21.:02:24.

I'm learning to drive, so I haven't actually got a car yet,

:02:25.:02:28.

and there is no way to get out of here unless you have a bus

:02:29.:02:32.

More than 1000 people live here and more homes are on the way.

:02:33.:02:39.

News that this service is to go has horrified the community.

:02:40.:02:42.

One of the reasons those houses were approved

:02:43.:02:44.

is because we are classed as a sustainable village,

:02:45.:02:46.

so we have the bus service, we have the pubs,

:02:47.:02:48.

Take one of those away and we are not quite

:02:49.:02:52.

South Devon has a high proportion of senior citizens

:02:53.:02:55.

Bus companies are reimbursed by the Government through the council,

:02:56.:03:00.

but Torbay picked up ?4 million of that bill last year

:03:01.:03:02.

because there was not enough money to cover it.

:03:03.:03:05.

The Government says funding of local bus routes is for local authorities

:03:06.:03:08.

and it spends ?250 million per year supporting services.

:03:09.:03:17.

Derek French, who runs Local Link, says it has become increasingly

:03:18.:03:20.

difficult to operate in this marketplace with fare-stage routes,

:03:21.:03:22.

due to increased overheads and reduced income, particularly

:03:23.:03:24.

mentioning the concessionary fares and how much they are reimbursed.

:03:25.:03:26.

He says the company will continue to operate in other parts

:03:27.:03:29.

of the transport industry, and they would like to thank

:03:30.:03:32.

their customers for their loyal support over the last 13 years.

:03:33.:03:44.

And on and on and post about whether they would pay to safeguard the bus

:03:45.:03:52.

but it cannot be a contribution, you either pay the full fare or use your

:03:53.:03:58.

past. Torbay Council is looking at ways of keeping these routes going.

:03:59.:04:01.

Obviously, there are other operators in the bay and we also working

:04:02.:04:04.

They are currently building a business case to develop new key

:04:05.:04:07.

transport and we will be looking into the system in any way we can.

:04:08.:04:11.

If there is to be continuity of service beyond April,

:04:12.:04:13.

a new operator will have to be found in the next few days.

:04:14.:04:16.

But which operator will take over if the books don't balance?

:04:17.:04:20.

Lianna Etkind from Campaign For Better Transport told me this

:04:21.:04:22.

This is really bad news, and my heart goes out to all those

:04:23.:04:29.

people who are going to be wondering how to get to their jobs,

:04:30.:04:32.

how to get to school and college, or even how to get

:04:33.:04:35.

I think the local council, now, it's going to be

:04:36.:04:38.

talking to other operators, but will have to think creatively,

:04:39.:04:41.

perhaps resorting to community transport to keep

:04:42.:04:44.

and also keeping in mind the benefits of local buses

:04:45.:04:50.

What do you think the real problem is, here?

:04:51.:04:56.

Because concessions have been cited as to blame.

:04:57.:04:58.

Do you think free bus passes are really damaging the bus system?

:04:59.:05:03.

I don't think it is down to free bus passes.

:05:04.:05:07.

Bus passes are a really important benefit to older

:05:08.:05:10.

and disabled people, and I think that keeps our roads

:05:11.:05:13.

safer by enabling people a way to get out and about and not

:05:14.:05:16.

However, the bus industry has gone to a really hard time recently,

:05:17.:05:23.

and today's news is on top of huge cuts from Torbay Council

:05:24.:05:26.

for supporting bus services last year, and the South West generally

:05:27.:05:29.

has seen some of the highest rates of local authority

:05:30.:05:31.

On top of that, the bus service operators' grant, BSOG,

:05:32.:05:41.

has been cut by 20% by central Government.

:05:42.:05:45.

And briefly, Lianna, you say people should get creative

:05:46.:05:48.

The local authority is very soon, from May, going to get new powers

:05:49.:05:57.

under the Bus Services Bill, and they can use these powers

:05:58.:06:01.

to plan local bus networks, to link timetables up to rail

:06:02.:06:08.

stations, and perhaps to cross subsidise buses.

:06:09.:06:12.

My message to the local council would be, just hang on until May,

:06:13.:06:16.

and think about how the Bus Services Bill might bring

:06:17.:06:19.

Lianna Etkind, thank you very much for joining us.

:06:20.:06:25.

A paediatrician has pleaded guilty to 17 charges relating

:06:26.:06:31.

to indecent images of children while he was working

:06:32.:06:34.

at the North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple.

:06:35.:06:37.

Appearing at Exeter Crown Court today, 47-year-old Jonathan Walsh,

:06:38.:06:41.

seen here in the red jacket, and who now lives in Lancashire,

:06:42.:06:44.

admitted seven charges of making indecent images and ten charges

:06:45.:06:48.

Dr Walsh, who was sacked from the hospital when charged,

:06:49.:06:53.

None of the images relate to children in his care.

:06:54.:07:01.

It's been described as the most important decision Looe has

:07:02.:07:04.

Plans to tackle the constant flooding of the Cornish

:07:05.:07:08.

It'll cost ?55 million, but would help protect

:07:09.:07:11.

the harbour and town as well offer improvements for the fishing fleet.

:07:12.:07:17.

Christine Butler has been in the town to see

:07:18.:07:20.

Valentine's Day three years ago, a combination of high spring tides

:07:21.:07:25.

and south-east gales, which forced a tidal surge

:07:26.:07:27.

It was bad but not out of the ordinary.

:07:28.:07:34.

Tides regularly thrust their way through the drains

:07:35.:07:39.

Everyone in Looe agrees that something has got to be done.

:07:40.:07:42.

Looe is the most flooded town in the country, do you know that?

:07:43.:07:45.

In 2014, obviously, we had the major floods.

:07:46.:07:51.

This is phase one, which is lock gates, a walkway,

:07:52.:07:57.

and sealing the seafront more, and an extension to the pier

:07:58.:08:04.

with a small area of breakwater to protect the lock gates.

:08:05.:08:08.

And the lock gates will be here, and obviously

:08:09.:08:11.

with the south-easterly wind, if you have got that tidal surge it

:08:12.:08:14.

Time and tide wait for no man, but now man can't

:08:15.:08:20.

Every household gets a questionnaire,

:08:21.:08:26.

It is not just for defence that is on the table -

:08:27.:08:30.

the creation of an outer harbour could bring big business

:08:31.:08:32.

This is the most important decision people in our town can make

:08:33.:08:38.

in the last 50 years and then 50 years in our future.

:08:39.:08:42.

If we don't have it, I believe that our fishing

:08:43.:08:44.

And our fishermen, they have to go out on the tide and come

:08:45.:08:51.

back in on the tide, but if we had an outer harbour

:08:52.:08:53.

The floods of 2014 forced the Environment Agency

:08:54.:09:03.

Temporary barriers alongside the quayside which would cost

:09:04.:09:11.

The Harbour Commissioners consider that this will not work.

:09:12.:09:15.

When the tide comes in, it comes up through the walls and it

:09:16.:09:22.

comes up through the drainage system, so raising the walls

:09:23.:09:24.

and building a wall around the harbour would not work.

:09:25.:09:32.

The Environment Agency says it can provide some money to support

:09:33.:09:34.

a scheme but the rest will rely on Cornwall Council persuading

:09:35.:09:37.

Christine Butler, BBC Spotlight, Looe.

:09:38.:09:46.

Now, car-parking is one subject which always attracts a lot

:09:47.:09:48.

Usually it's the charges which are controversial,

:09:49.:09:52.

but it seems the hidden cost of parking is the latest

:09:53.:09:55.

cause of frustration for motorists in Exeter.

:09:56.:10:00.

Hamish Marshall has been to investigate.

:10:01.:10:04.

I have travelled into the city centre and I have

:10:05.:10:07.

All I need to do now is find some change,

:10:08.:10:11.

find out where the machine is, and how much it's going to cost.

:10:12.:10:17.

Well, here's where you pay, but the question,

:10:18.:10:19.

Not very easy, because the charges are hidden behind the machine.

:10:20.:10:26.

It should be very conspicuous, but actually there it is incredibly

:10:27.:10:28.

Before, the prices were on the top and everyone could see them,

:10:29.:10:35.

but now it is very, very difficult, so I'm afraid the council have made

:10:36.:10:39.

And that's led to all sorts of contortions for people

:10:40.:10:44.

trying to see the charges, in case they get caught out

:10:45.:10:47.

I went round to the left-hand side of the well-placed machine.

:10:48.:10:55.

I peered at an angle and then I gradually worked my way

:10:56.:10:58.

down until I figured out it was ?1 per hour.

:10:59.:11:01.

What has actually been going on here?

:11:02.:11:04.

Well, the City Council tell me it was all because they were

:11:05.:11:07.

standardising their car parking boards ride across the city.

:11:08.:11:09.

The problem is, though, the fixings for this one

:11:10.:11:13.

were too low, which means, when the board was put on,

:11:14.:11:15.

They say they are sticking to their contractors

:11:16.:11:20.

to get them to fix it, and they are promising to be

:11:21.:11:23.

lenient if anyone does get caught out on pricing.

:11:24.:11:26.

Just a reminder here that it is ?1 an hour.

:11:27.:11:30.

Hamish Marshall, BBC Spotlight, Exeter.

:11:31.:11:36.

This story has prompted a lot of comments on our

:11:37.:11:39.

Sue says: "Who on earth stood there and decided this was the best

:11:40.:11:45.

place to fix the payment machine...twice the expense for not

:11:46.:11:47.

"Even more challenging for a disabled person to check

:11:48.:11:53.

the parking regulations...and I know because I had to try

Romance is in the air on Spotlight later:

:12:07.:12:10.

The letters from the front line which reveal how love endured

:12:11.:12:18.

And made a man of me. The only one I ever loved.

:12:19.:12:23.

The letters from the front line which reveal how love endured

:12:24.:12:26.

And if roses aren't your thing, choose from 1,700 other species,

:12:27.:12:29.

for the St Valentine's Day flower count.

:12:30.:12:34.

Now do you enjoy a trip to the garden centre,

:12:35.:12:37.

a visit to a gallery, or just chatting over a cup of tea?

:12:38.:12:40.

If you do you might be exactly the kind of person needed by

:12:41.:12:43.

They're calling for more volunteers to buddy up with someone

:12:44.:12:47.

with dementia in a scheme to help tackle loneliness.

:12:48.:12:50.

Harriet Bradshaw has been to Newquay to find out how it works.

:12:51.:12:55.

She's got Alzheimer's, which affects her memory

:12:56.:13:01.

and her thinking, and the knock-on consequences can leave

:13:02.:13:06.

There you go, Pam. Nice and gentle.

:13:07.:13:11.

For Pam, she's getting out more and more now thanks

:13:12.:13:16.

Yeah, we do. Yeah.

:13:17.:13:30.

We are a good partnership, aren't we?

:13:31.:13:33.

Yeah, yeah. We have a lot of fun.

:13:34.:13:37.

They've been paired through a new scheme giving people

:13:38.:13:40.

with dementia the chance to continue the hobbies they love

:13:41.:13:44.

in the community, but there is a shortage of volunteers.

:13:45.:13:49.

The demand is so high for the service in Newquay

:13:50.:13:52.

and St Austell where it's currently being provided, that we've had

:13:53.:13:54.

to close waiting list, and at the moment, for everyone

:13:55.:13:57.

volunteer we have, there are three people waiting to be matched

:13:58.:14:00.

We would like to be able to provide the people

:14:01.:14:03.

with dementia on the waiting list with a volunteer, but also

:14:04.:14:06.

eventually to expand the service across the rest of Cornwall,

:14:07.:14:14.

so that the more people that we have who want to have one to come

:14:15.:14:18.

on board and make a difference, really, the better it is for

:14:19.:14:21.

I find, as well, I've gained more confidence volunteering.

:14:22.:14:24.

I am not one to go out and about much on my own, but,

:14:25.:14:27.

As I say, it's given me more confidence, and,

:14:28.:14:30.

Pam had stopped playing bowls when her husband died,

:14:31.:14:37.

but picking it up again has given her a new lease of life.

:14:38.:14:42.

It's changed my life, getting out of the house and meeting people.

:14:43.:14:47.

The Alzheimer's Society says by 2021 more than 1 million people will be

:14:48.:14:58.

living with dementia, so volunteer work is

:14:59.:14:59.

Harriet Bradshaw, BBC Spotlight, Newquay.

:15:00.:15:08.

Next tonight, love and loss - and today of all days is the perfect

:15:09.:15:12.

opportunity to marvel at the enduring power of love

:15:13.:15:16.

with the release of letters home written by soldiers fighting

:15:17.:15:18.

They've been made public by descendants to mark

:15:19.:15:24.

the forthcoming centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele.

:15:25.:15:26.

John Henderson's been to meet the great-granddaughter of a soldier

:15:27.:15:30.

who wrote to his wife, telling her:

:15:31.:15:32.

"You were the only one I ever loved, the one

:15:33.:15:34.

My darling, if this should ever reach you, it will be a sure sign

:15:35.:15:47.

that I am gone under, and what they of view do not know, but there is

:15:48.:15:52.

one above that will see to you and not let you starve.

:15:53.:15:56.

The language of love undiminished after 100 years.

:15:57.:16:00.

You have been the best and are you deeply. How much, you will never

:16:01.:16:03.

know. Like thousands around him on the

:16:04.:16:09.

battlefield, Private Albert Ford thought constantly about home and

:16:10.:16:11.

his wife and six children who he left behind.

:16:12.:16:17.

The youngest was born in June 1917 and he had already gone to the front

:16:18.:16:20.

so he never saw her. A photograph was taken of the six children to be

:16:21.:16:25.

sent to him, but I do not know whether he did or did not see it.

:16:26.:16:30.

Private Ford was initially a merchant seaman and that his ship

:16:31.:16:34.

was torpedoed and the letters revealed a coach of guilt about

:16:35.:16:38.

taking part in the greatest war. He volunteered to sign up and I

:16:39.:16:43.

think that is why there is this tinge of regret that goes through

:16:44.:16:48.

the letter. It was posted to the front -- he was

:16:49.:16:53.

posted to the front and was killed in action on the 26th of October 19

:16:54.:16:58.

17. The last letter home was made public and in it he tells his wife

:16:59.:17:02.

Edith to marry again if she ever gets the chance.

:17:03.:17:06.

She never did marry again. She kept all of his letters together and died

:17:07.:17:12.

in 1956. Shortly before her death, she claims she saw him in her

:17:13.:17:17.

bedroom. She was certain he had come for her.

:17:18.:17:21.

His great grand daughter who lives in Dartmoor, and do her the latter

:17:22.:17:27.

home is the ultimate love letter. Know that my last were of you...

:17:28.:17:40.

Now it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without flowers, and,

:17:41.:17:44.

if roses aren't your thing, there are plenty of other

:17:45.:17:47.

More than 1,700 different species of flowers have been counted

:17:48.:17:50.

blooming at National Trust properties across the south-west.

:17:51.:17:53.

It's the 12th year for the annual flower count, and although numbers

:17:54.:17:56.

are down on last year, they're still very high and suggest

:17:57.:17:58.

Clare Woodling has been to one of the counts in Saltram.

:17:59.:18:08.

"A flower blossoms for its own joy" -

:18:09.:18:11.

And this year they are in abundance on National Trust properties

:18:12.:18:16.

There will always be the staple things in flowers,

:18:17.:18:22.

things like the snowdrops and camellias at this time of year,

:18:23.:18:25.

they are always in flower, so there's always the familiar

:18:26.:18:27.

things, but with a garden like this, there are 1500

:18:28.:18:30.

That's not different plants, that's different types of plants.

:18:31.:18:33.

And there are always going to be surprises.

:18:34.:18:35.

There is always something that has tried to throw up

:18:36.:18:37.

a flower unexpectedly, and that's always

:18:38.:18:39.

As you can see, there are lots of crocus here in front of us,

:18:40.:18:47.

but they are all the same type of crocus, so although there

:18:48.:18:50.

are hundreds of the plants here, this all only counts as one

:18:51.:18:53.

So you do not have to count every single head?

:18:54.:18:56.

No, otherwise I would be here for weeks if I had to do that.

:18:57.:19:00.

This is a carefully planned and it is the only such

:19:01.:19:03.

It originates from Nepal and has a lovely sweet fragrance.

:19:04.:19:08.

Because it blooms in February, it needs all of the ploys it can get

:19:09.:19:12.

to attract bees and other insects in to help the flowers pollinate.

:19:13.:19:17.

Cataloguing all of the different varieties each year offers

:19:18.:19:20.

a moment to reflect on how the garden is evolving.

:19:21.:19:24.

The chance of doing this flower count is a chance to really be

:19:25.:19:27.

able to focus on that, because we are so busy trying

:19:28.:19:29.

to keep on top of the practical, day-to-day gardening,

:19:30.:19:32.

that it is a really nice opportunity just to slow down a bit

:19:33.:19:35.

and focus on what is actually going on in the garden.

:19:36.:19:38.

These are Helleborus, which are otherwise known

:19:39.:19:41.

They are a really, really lovely looking flower.

:19:42.:19:49.

As the years go on, the data may give an insight into changing

:19:50.:19:56.

weather patterns on native and exotic species, and also

:19:57.:20:00.

what needs to be done to keep these gardens coming up roses,

:20:01.:20:05.

and camellias and snowdrops and crocuses and daffodils and tulips...

:20:06.:20:18.

Now, let's set the scene - a spray of flowers,

:20:19.:20:20.

a nice romantic light, after all, this is

:20:21.:20:23.

But in Somerset a romantic light to rival even this has been lit

:20:24.:20:30.

The St Valentine's Day lamp is the county's

:20:31.:20:34.

only working gas lamp, and every February 14 it's lit

:20:35.:20:39.

by the man who spent months restoring it.

:20:40.:20:42.

The ceremony has seen at least one proposal over the years, but,

:20:43.:20:45.

as Michelle Ruminski reports, the gas lighter is now

:20:46.:20:47.

looking for an apprentice to take on the role.

:20:48.:20:52.

Reg's love affair with a Valentine lamp all began when he found

:20:53.:20:57.

Over nearly three decades, he has put his heart

:20:58.:21:01.

and soul into restoring it, decorating it with symbols of love,

:21:02.:21:03.

All I know is I got carried away and, I think, anyway,

:21:04.:21:10.

I fell in love with the lamp by accident, and it controlled me

:21:11.:21:13.

Because I often say, why ever did I start?

:21:14.:21:18.

But having started, rather like in a romance,

:21:19.:21:21.

And it's fair to say that the Valentine gaslamp

:21:22.:21:30.

has a special place in many other people's hearts as well.

:21:31.:21:33.

I think you can't fault it, and I'm just hoping that people

:21:34.:21:38.

will take good care of it, because you won't find anything

:21:39.:21:40.

How many years have you been going to the ceremony?

:21:41.:21:48.

So it really does mean something to you?

:21:49.:21:52.

Yes, no, it does, and a lot of other people around here as well.

:21:53.:21:55.

None more so than Dave and Sue, Reg's daughter.

:21:56.:21:57.

It was here two years ago that I proposed to sue,

:21:58.:22:00.

It was here two years ago that I proposed to Sue,

:22:01.:22:02.

and they brought with me a heart-shaped red cushion

:22:03.:22:05.

and got down on one knee and popped the question.

:22:06.:22:07.

A great shock, but wonderful shock, and now we are planning to get

:22:08.:22:10.

married and live the rest of our lives together.

:22:11.:22:12.

We will always have that history with the Valentine lamp.

:22:13.:22:15.

But, with Reg growing older and with his family living up north,

:22:16.:22:18.

he is urgently looking for someone to replace him.

:22:19.:22:21.

You see, I am looking for a lamp lighter.

:22:22.:22:30.

Tonight, Reg has done the honours for the 23rd time.

:22:31.:22:38.

Many turned out for this Valentines tradition. Who knows? Maybe it will

:22:39.:22:44.

spark someone else to fall in love with it as well.

:22:45.:22:45.

Michel Ruminski, BBC Spotlight, Frome.

:22:46.:22:49.

Let's hope they keep that tradition going. I hate to spoil the romantic

:22:50.:22:55.

scene here, but there was a risk assessment had to be filled in for

:22:56.:23:00.

this lit candle and we have a man standing by, the editor, to put the

:23:01.:23:06.

candle out if it gets dangerous. But that spoils the romantic ambience.

:23:07.:23:11.

We need someone to fan the flames. Do not do that. It is time for the

:23:12.:23:16.

weather forecast. What is it looking like, Holly?

:23:17.:23:20.

Don't worry. Good. I thought you had left me out. I will say that to the

:23:21.:23:27.

end of the forecast. Yes, do not touch the candle. It is Valentines

:23:28.:23:33.

evening and how lovely. Happy Valentine's Day. Roses are red,

:23:34.:23:38.

violets are blue, and for some of us today the sky was to. Here in

:23:39.:23:43.

Cornwall, a lovely picture and springlike. For many of us it was

:23:44.:23:47.

more grave. Low cloud around and a bit of mist and hill fog as well as

:23:48.:23:52.

outbreaks of rain. And it gradually works its way eastwards and improves

:23:53.:23:56.

from the West. Amazingly, tomorrow, we do it again. Another weather

:23:57.:23:59.

front approaching with some styles of heavy rain in the morning. That

:24:00.:24:04.

rain could be quite lively but also possibly bringing thunder. Brighter

:24:05.:24:09.

in the afternoon, much like today, and a bit less breezy than today.

:24:10.:24:13.

This is the weather bug affecting as earlier and that pushes eastwards.

:24:14.:24:17.

You will see this next weather front waiting in the wings. That will go

:24:18.:24:22.

through to the second part of tonight into tomorrow, and it will

:24:23.:24:26.

clear and then higher pressure building its way in on Thursday. It

:24:27.:24:30.

will settle. Comes with a mist, but first I should break. Light winds,

:24:31.:24:36.

dryness, and brightness. That high-pressure doing its best but we

:24:37.:24:39.

have got a weather front approaching, and then it does start

:24:40.:24:41.

to bring you a bit more cloud and maybe just a little bit of rain.

:24:42.:24:46.

More so later in the day. This great stretch of cloud associated with our

:24:47.:24:49.

weather fronts and patchy rain underneath it. This cloud also quite

:24:50.:24:53.

low but it way eastwards. That rain is coming in from the West. Also

:24:54.:24:58.

these showers working their way towards us. That is the picture

:24:59.:25:01.

through this evening and tonight. Quite heavy showers working their

:25:02.:25:05.

way around midnight, and further ease some starry skies initially but

:25:06.:25:10.

some low cloudy mist and hill fog re-bonding. In the early hours some

:25:11.:25:13.

more persistent rain is working its way in across or more. Some odd

:25:14.:25:17.

rumbles of thunder but also a mild night with loads of seven or eight

:25:18.:25:21.

Celsius. Heading through tomorrow morning and a bed of a wet start.

:25:22.:25:26.

Rain could be heavy through the course of the morning. It worked its

:25:27.:25:30.

way eastwards, good news, becomes showery and those showers peel away.

:25:31.:25:35.

Some sunshine coming out. Quite a springlike look into tomorrow

:25:36.:25:38.

afternoon and the wind will be that bit lighter. Initially a brisk

:25:39.:25:42.

southerly but eases into the afternoon, I ran to the

:25:43.:25:46.

south-westerly. These are top temperatures. Height of ten or 11

:25:47.:25:52.

Celsius. As high as 13 or 14 Celsius, so not a bad look for

:25:53.:25:57.

things at all and much milder than we are used to operate the several

:25:58.:26:00.

recent days, especially last week into the weekend. For the Isles of

:26:01.:26:06.

Scilly, early heavy rain should nip through quickly during the morning

:26:07.:26:09.

and much of the day will have sunshine. The risk of some heavy

:26:10.:26:15.

showers. Not too many. Usual times of high water. For servers, the

:26:16.:26:27.

waves are not looking too big. It could be cleaned along the north

:26:28.:26:32.

coast I suspect at first, but went veering around to become choppy. --

:26:33.:26:37.

file servers. Coastal waters forecast, Winter southerly at four

:26:38.:26:40.

or five, and using a late into the afternoon. Rain or showers

:26:41.:26:46.

visibility moderate or good and light but moderate at times.

:26:47.:26:49.

Overall, not looking too bad over the next few days. Although we have

:26:50.:26:54.

got a view things to watch out for, early rain through tomorrow morning

:26:55.:26:58.

and quite heavy and thundery. Could improve come the afternoon. There

:26:59.:27:02.

looking like the most promising day of the next view, with high pressure

:27:03.:27:05.

in charge and winds lighter than they have been. A bit of mist and

:27:06.:27:10.

fog early on should clear and then persistent sunshine on Thursday.

:27:11.:27:13.

Even though that high-pressure stays in charge for Friday, some cloud

:27:14.:27:18.

working in the risk of a bit more rain by day and perhaps more

:27:19.:27:22.

persistent rain into the evening. Into the weekend, I think it tries

:27:23.:27:28.

to stay settled, and a bit of rain but hopefully not too much.

:27:29.:27:30.

Generally a reasonable but hopefully not too much.

:27:31.:27:33.

Generally a reasonable picture. You have not even have any fizz.

:27:34.:27:39.

Come and join us. This is for Valentines night. Thank you very

:27:40.:27:42.

much. Happy Valentine 's night. See you again tomorrow. Cheers. Cheers.

:27:43.:27:46.

Cheers. # I knew you were trouble

:27:47.:27:57.

when you walked in # Now I'm lying

:27:58.:28:19.

on the cold, hard ground
