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

:00:00.:00:00.

As we go on air tonight a major incident has

has been evacuated, we will have the has been evacuated, we will have the

:00:00.:00:20.

latest from the scene. Also Tonight as council tax bills go

:00:21.:00:21.

up in Cornwall and services are cut, Well, my message to Government

:00:22.:00:25.

is that they're not helping us. My message to the Government is that

austerity can only go on for so This simple wooden frame is

transforming a woman's life. It's revolutionised my life,

:00:33.:00:42.

really, I would say. Living together separately,

:00:43.:00:44.

the co-housing idea which is gaining popularity, we'll find

:00:45.:00:48.

out how it works. First tonight, a major incident has

:00:49.:01:06.

been declared in Exeter. The Riverside Leisure Centre has

:01:07.:01:09.

been evacuated after Fire crews were called just

:01:10.:01:12.

after four O'clock this afternoon and the health suite was described

:01:13.:01:18.

as "well alight". Swimmers were forced to flee

:01:19.:01:21.

the building after the pool I just remember what I was told at

:01:22.:01:33.

school, left everything and got out. Grabbed my coat but everything else

:01:34.:01:38.

was left in there. Obviously you are thinking of safety so you just get

:01:39.:01:40.

out. I've just been speaking to the

:01:41.:01:58.

incident commander. The fire is still burning, the Fire Service

:01:59.:02:04.

believe it has spread to the roof. They have an aerial platform up

:02:05.:02:08.

there trying to make sure it is contained. It started in the sauna

:02:09.:02:14.

and quickly filled the centre with smoke. They evacuated the people to

:02:15.:02:20.

a nearby cafe where they are being cared for. This major incident is on

:02:21.:02:26.

one of the major routes through Exeter and is causing severe traffic

:02:27.:02:31.

problems. One piece of good news, we have just heard there were only two

:02:32.:02:38.

casualties with only my -- minor injuries.

:02:39.:02:39.

Of course we'll keep across developments and bring

:02:40.:02:40.

There are also all the photographs and information on our BBC Spotlight

:02:41.:02:51.

page. "Many believe local

:02:52.:02:52.

Government is under assault." The words of the leader

:02:53.:02:53.

of Cornwall Council John Pollard, as the authority today became

:02:54.:02:56.

the latest in the south west With council tax rises

:02:57.:02:59.

and cuts to services, The average household in Cornwall

:03:00.:03:04.

will have to pay an extra ?50 per year on its council tax

:03:05.:03:08.

bill from April. It's a rise of nearly 4%,

:03:09.:03:13.

half of which will go Cuts of ?33 million have also

:03:14.:03:15.

been given the go-ahead. Cornwall's decision comes days

:03:16.:03:19.

after Devon and Dorset councillors approved increases of almost 5%

:03:20.:03:31.

along with a near 4% rise in Somerset

:03:32.:03:33.

which prompted angry protests. Tamsin Melville has been following

:03:34.:03:35.

the days events in Truro... It is becoming a bit like an annual

:03:36.:03:42.

production. The same themes, largely the same characters and plot seems

:03:43.:03:46.

to end the same way for the people of Cornwall, bigger bills, fewer

:03:47.:03:49.

services and this plea from the lead leader. My message to the Government

:03:50.:03:55.

is they are not helping us. My message is that austerity can only

:03:56.:04:00.

go once so long, that needs to change. My message is please invest

:04:01.:04:08.

in adult social care. Since 2010 Cornwall Council is made savings of

:04:09.:04:13.

nearly ?200 million. In the coming year there will be another ?33

:04:14.:04:18.

million cut. Not many areas of spending escape but off-loading

:04:19.:04:22.

libraries and leisure centres is key this year. Council tax bills are

:04:23.:04:28.

going up again by ?1 a week for an average band D household. Part of

:04:29.:04:31.

this is the screws of leak for adult social care. Personally I'm happy

:04:32.:04:36.

that's really good. They need to be that's really good. They need to be

:04:37.:04:39.

looked after and not thought of as a nuisance. Surge in the pit of my

:04:40.:04:46.

heart just thinking, more money, more money. We can rob Peter to

:04:47.:04:49.

people as long as we like but not people as long as we like but not

:04:50.:04:53.

everyone will benefit. Councillors could have put another 1% on council

:04:54.:04:58.

tax for social care but this was rejected, with some conservatives

:04:59.:05:02.

themselves angered at the thought. We have to stand firm and canvas

:05:03.:05:05.

central Government and say on social care it is a nationwide problem and

:05:06.:05:08.

they need to fund it from the centre. And what will the ?5 million

:05:09.:05:14.

raised actually fund? A lot of that will get sucked up through the

:05:15.:05:18.

increases to the living wage, the national living wage obviously

:05:19.:05:22.

influence those hikes to the lowest paid, which I absolutely agree with

:05:23.:05:25.

and should happen. So the 2% really will only just cover that. Today's

:05:26.:05:30.

vote also paves the way for around 300 further job losses by 2020.

:05:31.:05:36.

Meanwhile the Government is insisting its financial settlement

:05:37.:05:36.

councils is fair. Tamsin Melville is at

:05:37.:05:37.

County Hall in Truro. So what is the Government saying

:05:38.:05:42.

about its sale settlement councils? It is saying that they have put more

:05:43.:05:54.

money into social care and that the four-year Central meant they are

:05:55.:05:56.

giving councillors means they can plan ahead. But it is not just

:05:57.:06:00.

hearing Cornwall there taking issue. Councils across the south-west

:06:01.:06:04.

grouping together saying there needs to be an urgent review and that

:06:05.:06:07.

Whitehall simply isn't addressing the crisis in social care funding.

:06:08.:06:13.

MPs at Westminster will be tomorrow debating the settlement but it is

:06:14.:06:17.

looking unlikely that any new money for adult social care will be making

:06:18.:06:21.

its way from central Government. Thank you.

:06:22.:06:22.

The pub trade in the South West has added to the growing pressure

:06:23.:06:25.

on the Government to rethink controversial changes

:06:26.:06:27.

Recently we featured concerns from some owners of holiday

:06:28.:06:32.

lets who also face a big increase in bills.

:06:33.:06:34.

Now some pubs say they are also being penalised.

:06:35.:06:37.

The Babbacombe Inn in South Devon says its rates

:06:38.:06:40.

But the Government says increases will be capped and the average bill

:06:41.:06:50.

Martin Strange has been here for 18 years, and

:06:51.:06:55.

has invested heavily in the Babbacombe Inn.

:06:56.:06:57.

His business has grown and so have his business rates.

:06:58.:07:02.

The rates assessment of his pub has risen 650%.

:07:03.:07:05.

Over the next five years it will triple,

:07:06.:07:09.

It's taken away the stimulus to invest in this market and this

:07:10.:07:14.

Because the busier you are, the better you are, the more you

:07:15.:07:18.

grow your business, the more you're going to get taxed.

:07:19.:07:24.

Business rates for shops are based on rents and

:07:25.:07:26.

floor space, but for pubs it takes into account turnover as well.

:07:27.:07:29.

This means the more successful you are the more you pay.

:07:30.:07:32.

But in turn it also means a like-for-like pub not

:07:33.:07:34.

doing so well will pay much less for selling exactly

:07:35.:07:37.

The hospitality trade body ALMR is calling on the Government to

:07:38.:07:43.

At the moment pubs across the country are

:07:44.:07:48.

subsidising the business rate burden by about ?500 million a year.

:07:49.:07:51.

That is ?500 million we think they are paying more than they

:07:52.:07:54.

So we are asking for some temporary help.

:07:55.:07:59.

But whilst some pubs are unhappy, other businesses, like

:08:00.:08:02.

retailers, are expecting their rates to fall because our economy

:08:03.:08:04.

That said, the fall might not be as much as they hope.

:08:05.:08:11.

Retailers, for example, that think they may be in line for a

:08:12.:08:14.

big decrease, they are not going to do as well

:08:15.:08:16.

because that decrease bytransitional relief is being offset

:08:17.:08:18.

against the increases elsewhere in the country.

:08:19.:08:20.

The Department for Communities and Local Government

:08:21.:08:22.

says the average bill for pubs in the south-west will go down.

:08:23.:08:26.

There will be caps on rate rises and there

:08:27.:08:29.

will be transitional relief where the increase is high, and that

:08:30.:08:32.

Martin, though, will be one of those who loses out.

:08:33.:08:37.

And he says it could mean he'll have to put his expansion plans on hold.

:08:38.:08:44.

Businesses are now calling on the Government to drop

:08:45.:08:47.

Our Political Editor Martyn Oates is in Westminster for us tonight.

:08:48.:08:55.

As you say this is by no means confined to tour by. At beginning of

:08:56.:09:03.

the year we heard concerns from St Ives. I am joined by their MP who is

:09:04.:09:12.

one of a few Conservative MPs very unhappy about this. It is worth

:09:13.:09:15.

pointing out that for many businesses in Cornwall the business

:09:16.:09:20.

rate revaluation is positive. More than half will be taken out of

:09:21.:09:24.

business rates altogether. I think the Government has done good work in

:09:25.:09:33.

most respects. But the average increase is 24% across most

:09:34.:09:38.

businesses. But for some it is 60% going up to 100% increase. ?1000 a

:09:39.:09:43.

month sums for in St Ives. Rubicon tolerate that. The secretary has

:09:44.:09:54.

been pretty unsympathetic. He says it is the result of distortion and

:09:55.:09:58.

scaremongering. 32 small businesses have approached me and given me

:09:59.:10:01.

their rent figures on how their rates have increased. We are taking

:10:02.:10:05.

each one of those to the valuation office to get them to look again. I

:10:06.:10:08.

believe there is a mistake being made wasn't Ives, I believe they

:10:09.:10:14.

have concentrated on big business and perceived prosperity there. We

:10:15.:10:18.

need to make sure this formula works so that the small businesses who

:10:19.:10:28.

work hard in St Ives, to then put an extra ?1000 on their business rates

:10:29.:10:31.

they have to get that whether they work or not. Personally business

:10:32.:10:35.

rates doesn't work. It's just an arbitrary figure. Thank you. As I

:10:36.:10:40.

said the Communities Secretary has not been to be sympathetic. There is

:10:41.:10:43.

a rumour that the Chancellor could be rather more is pathetic in his

:10:44.:10:46.

budget in two weeks' time. Thank you.

:10:47.:10:47.

A privately run home in Cornwall that provides care for adults

:10:48.:10:49.

with learning and physical disabilities is being investigated

:10:50.:10:53.

after allegations were made about the care being provided.

:10:54.:10:57.

Bowden Derra Park near Launceston currently has 70

:10:58.:10:59.

Cornwall council says no-one is at immediate risk of any harm.

:11:00.:11:05.

As you can see behind me, this is a sprawling estate. At the top you can

:11:06.:11:19.

couple of the properties. It is in those properties where they care for

:11:20.:11:23.

the adults who have learning and physical disabilities, some of them

:11:24.:11:27.

also have rather complex health care needs. This morning is when we were

:11:28.:11:33.

first alerted to a situation. A joint statement came out saying a

:11:34.:11:37.

number of allegations had been made about the care being received. They

:11:38.:11:43.

have suspended all placements to the home whilst those allegations are

:11:44.:11:47.

currently investigated. What we have also know is that yesterday the Care

:11:48.:11:51.

Quality Commission sent in a team of inspectors. We don't know their

:11:52.:11:54.

findings, but we do know that when they last came in in March 2016 they

:11:55.:12:03.

rated it of overall a good standard. All sides have met today to discuss

:12:04.:12:07.

the allegations which have been public rereleased will stop we know

:12:08.:12:11.

70 adults are being currently cared for here. Just over half of those

:12:12.:12:17.

are on council funded places. The ferry has stressed this afternoon

:12:18.:12:20.

that the allegations have not raised concerns that anyone is at immediate

:12:21.:12:24.

risk of harm. Some of the families who have loved ones in the home have

:12:25.:12:28.

been in contact with their local MP to praise the on-site care. In a

:12:29.:12:33.

statement released this evening the care home has made it clear that the

:12:34.:12:37.

health, safety and well-being of the individuals it cares for is its top

:12:38.:12:42.

priority. It will continue to work closely, it says, with Cornwall

:12:43.:12:45.

Council but its focus remains to providing the same excellent care it

:12:46.:12:48.

has done here for over 38 years. Stay with us for the animated

:12:49.:12:52.

version of Archie the Fire dog. And later news of a

:12:53.:12:56.

change in the weather. Well, Storm Doris has been named

:12:57.:12:59.

but what impact will it have on the south-west when it

:13:00.:13:02.

hit us on Thursday? I'll have all the details

:13:03.:13:04.

later in the programme. A woman from Devon has

:13:05.:13:13.

described a simple wooden Sally Morgan has multiple sclerosis

:13:14.:13:17.

and hasn't been able to stand She is now able to be upright

:13:18.:13:22.

for around an hour a day. The frame isn't universally

:13:23.:13:27.

available on the NHS, but now academics at Plymouth University

:13:28.:13:30.

are leading a trial to assess Our health correspondent

:13:31.:13:33.

Jenny Walrond has more. It's a simple but sturdy frame

:13:34.:13:43.

and for Sally Morgan it She has multiple sclerosis

:13:44.:13:46.

and hasn't been able to stand up for Sally has been taking

:13:47.:13:49.

part in a study run by Plymouth University, looking

:13:50.:13:55.

at whether the standing frame is effective in helping people

:13:56.:13:58.

improve their strength. Oh, it's revolutionised my life,

:13:59.:14:03.

really, I would say. Obviously, when you are sedentary,

:14:04.:14:06.

when you are sat down most of the time, all

:14:07.:14:08.

your muscles contract. Whereas now the muscles

:14:09.:14:10.

behind my knees and my quads in my legs, all my those types of things

:14:11.:14:14.

have suddenly become more stretched and my upper body strength has

:14:15.:14:19.

improved and it is freeing up The frames have been made

:14:20.:14:22.

by a family firm for some time. They cost around ?500

:14:23.:14:27.

but, in order to get them commissioned on the NHS,

:14:28.:14:30.

academics must prove that they are effective in improving things

:14:31.:14:33.

such as core strength We are hoping to find out,

:14:34.:14:37.

firstly, to see whether this intervention is effective,

:14:38.:14:41.

because without that kind of evidence then we are unable to often

:14:42.:14:44.

provide this kind of equipment because we need evidence to

:14:45.:14:48.

demonstrate to commissioners of care who purchase these kind of aides

:14:49.:14:52.

and equipment to see whether it is relevant for people and whether it

:14:53.:14:57.

does make a difference to their lives and whether it

:14:58.:15:00.

is cost-effective. For Sally and her husband Matt

:15:01.:15:02.

the change has been obvious. Her legs are less swollen,

:15:03.:15:05.

she is now able to stand for about an hour, and finds it easier

:15:06.:15:09.

to transition from her Well, it's been amazing for Sally -

:15:10.:15:12.

it really has transformed her life. Dealing with MS on a day-to-day

:15:13.:15:19.

basis was really tough for both of us, but it has

:15:20.:15:21.

made her physically more positive, she feels she is able to do

:15:22.:15:26.

more, much more. The trial is ongoing

:15:27.:15:30.

and still needs more volunteers. If the results show that others

:15:31.:15:34.

benefit as Sally has, this could become

:15:35.:15:37.

available on the NHS. There are details about that study

:15:38.:15:44.

on our BBC Spotlight facebook page. You don't have to be a member

:15:45.:15:48.

of facebook to find them. Now a quick round up of some

:15:49.:15:53.

of the other stories tonight An official site built to house

:15:54.:15:56.

travellers at a Devon beauty Teignbridge Council wants

:15:57.:15:58.

to build three more units at the Haldon Ridge

:15:59.:16:02.

site near Exeter. A decision on the additional pitches

:16:03.:16:05.

is expected in April. Plans to pedestrianise parts

:16:06.:16:11.

of Taunton town centre have Taunton Deane Borough Council wants

:16:12.:16:14.

to ban traffic from East Street, Hammet Street and St James Street

:16:15.:16:18.

for an 18-month trial period. The plans are on display

:16:19.:16:22.

at Taunton Library. People are being asked

:16:23.:16:26.

for their views on scrapping free deckchairs for the over 60s

:16:27.:16:29.

on Weymouth Esplanade. Weymouth and Portland Borough

:16:30.:16:32.

Council says scrapping the free pass for those who live in the borough

:16:33.:16:35.

would save ?5,000 a year. The deckchairs have been free

:16:36.:16:39.

of charge for the past 30 years. The Somerset trained horse

:16:40.:16:45.

Thistlecrack that was favourite to win this year's Cheltenham Gold Cup

:16:46.:16:47.

will miss out due to injury. Its not all doom and gloom

:16:48.:16:50.

at Colin Tizzrd's yard though as he does still have the second

:16:51.:16:53.

and third favourites. It's a familiar part of student

:16:54.:17:00.

life, but now communal living is becoming increasingly popular

:17:01.:17:03.

among older people. It's known as co-housing

:17:04.:17:08.

and involves residents living in smaller properties and sharing

:17:09.:17:10.

a kitchen, dining area The idea may help to ease the

:17:11.:17:22.

growing pressure on housing and could be rolled out across the

:17:23.:17:26.

south-west. A number of sites have already been earmarked. Our reporter

:17:27.:17:30.

has been to one scheme in Dorset to see how it works.

:17:31.:17:32.

They live side-by-side but they are not students.

:17:33.:17:34.

They get on well but some have only just met.

:17:35.:17:36.

They eat together but this is not a house

:17:37.:17:38.

There are 14 separate homes here at the

:17:39.:17:44.

But when it comes to gardening and cooking

:17:45.:17:50.

They have one central kitchen and dining

:17:51.:17:54.

For them it is a greener way of living, a

:17:55.:18:04.

And they are therefore each other if they need support.

:18:05.:18:08.

Actually, what this was very important for me was

:18:09.:18:10.

that my son stopped worrying about me,

:18:11.:18:12.

because he knew there were lots

:18:13.:18:13.

of people around who would look out for me.

:18:14.:18:15.

It's sending a message, really, to other people that these things

:18:16.:18:18.

can be done and sustainability is not

:18:19.:18:21.

just about the green aspects and the environment, it's about people

:18:22.:18:26.

living together within a sustainable community.

:18:27.:18:29.

Co-housing is a microcosm of humanity.

:18:30.:18:31.

You have exactly the same issues that any group of people

:18:32.:18:36.

have, it's just that it's an intentional community,

:18:37.:18:38.

so we intend to make the effort to get on with

:18:39.:18:41.

each other and do things together and enjoy life together.

:18:42.:18:45.

According to the most recent figures, there

:18:46.:18:46.

are 7 million single person houses have sold in the UK.

:18:47.:18:49.

And we although about the shortage in housing

:18:50.:18:52.

Well, here in Bridport, 40 miles away from the Threshold Centre, one

:18:53.:18:55.

local group are hoping another co-housing scheme can help to

:18:56.:18:58.

The co-housing movement started in Denmark in the 1960s.

:18:59.:19:04.

It is now growing in popularity with other schemes near

:19:05.:19:08.

In Bridport, they are now confident work will begin here in the spring.

:19:09.:19:13.

We are looking at the sort of lives we want to live in the future and

:19:14.:19:17.

the constraints we may face on our lives in the future, and I think

:19:18.:19:20.

that co-housing will answer many of them

:19:21.:19:23.

because it is flexible and

:19:24.:19:26.

people can have as little or as much company as they need.

:19:27.:19:30.

I suppose a real hermit would need somewhere

:19:31.:19:32.

else, you know, they wouldn't like it.

:19:33.:19:33.

But for most people there are benefits.

:19:34.:19:39.

Particularly single parents, there is a distinctive benefit.

:19:40.:19:41.

The town is very supportive of us, the sort of people that live

:19:42.:19:44.

here, a lot of people are interested in what we are doing and interested

:19:45.:19:48.

The first residents will be moving in to the Bridport co-housing scheme

:19:49.:19:54.

For now, at the Threshold Centre, there are chores to be done.

:19:55.:20:05.

Now they're man's best friend and we must admit

:20:06.:20:07.

We were more than a little pleased to see these

:20:08.:20:11.

dogs with jobs arrive at our studios this morning.

:20:12.:20:13.

Devon and Cornwall Police's Cosmic and Tara, accompanied

:20:14.:20:16.

by their handlers and volunteer puppy walker were here

:20:17.:20:18.

for an interview with Radio Devon's David Fitzgerald.

:20:19.:20:25.

But they're not the only dogs with an important

:20:26.:20:27.

You may remember Archie from the Cornwall Fire

:20:28.:20:31.

and Rescue Service, who appeared on Spotlight last year.

:20:32.:20:33.

Well, now he has a starring role in his very own animation.

:20:34.:20:36.

Reporting for duty and ready for the next shout, Archie the fire

:20:37.:20:49.

dog and his canine colleague Woody have become rather animated.

:20:50.:20:51.

And my name is Woody and I'm learning to become a

:20:52.:20:57.

He is not quite three years old and he's part

:20:58.:21:06.

Archie's role is to assist us in determining potentially the

:21:07.:21:23.

causes of fires and looking for ignitable liquids or hydrocarbons

:21:24.:21:26.

stranger to the spotlight. or develop that fire Archie is no

:21:27.:21:33.

He has already been on our red sofa and is

:21:34.:21:35.

He's also got an important job to do.

:21:36.:21:39.

Get ready, Archie - the alarm is ringing!

:21:40.:21:40.

Archie and Woody's fire investigation adventure shows

:21:41.:21:42.

everything from the paw protectors going on to Archie arriving at the

:21:43.:21:45.

We wait for the firefighters to put out the fire.

:21:46.:21:52.

Now we sniff the whole room, searching for any of the scents we

:21:53.:21:55.

So what we are going to do is test Archie and see if he can

:21:56.:22:00.

Now, Mark, what have you put on this?

:22:01.:22:03.

It's methylated spirits that is on that

:22:04.:22:05.

stick, which is one of the hydrocarbons that

:22:06.:22:07.

Now I'm going to hide it under this door frame.

:22:08.:22:10.

How long do you think it will take him to find it?

:22:11.:22:13.

Well, with a bit of direction from myself, he is purely

:22:14.:22:15.

looking on scent, 20 to 30 seconds, maximum.

:22:16.:22:17.

Archie's skill or mose in helping to find the

:22:18.:22:22.

possible causes of fires has given the animators plenty to work with.

:22:23.:22:25.

Since the release of the film in the early part of last week,

:22:26.:22:31.

we've had several thousand people viewing it already, and we've had

:22:32.:22:34.

some really positive feedback from all over

:22:35.:22:37.

the country and all over the world, actually.

:22:38.:22:39.

And they think it's a great adventure.

:22:40.:22:41.

But there are some serious safety messages in the film.

:22:42.:22:45.

Always remember, if a fire does start - get out,

:22:46.:22:49.

And what about after a hard day's work?

:22:50.:22:56.

And we'd like to hear from you if you have a dog with a job.

:22:57.:23:16.

Whether it's a hearing dog, service dog, guide dog or herding dog,

:23:17.:23:21.

if you rely on your dog day-to-day, why not tell us your story.

:23:22.:23:25.

There are the usual ways to get in touch.

:23:26.:23:37.

Let's see what the weather is doing across the south-west.

:23:38.:23:44.

As long as they're an know whether dogs! We have had a lot of fog

:23:45.:23:53.

across the south-west. We've had low cloud, mist, generally fairly murky

:23:54.:23:57.

conditions, but I think tomorrow we should see the breeze pick-up and

:23:58.:24:02.

that could lift the cloud in places. A largely great, damp day. You can

:24:03.:24:07.

see we have a fair amount of cloud across much of the UK. We haven't

:24:08.:24:11.

had much in a way of sunshine. It is all tied in with this weather front.

:24:12.:24:16.

We are on the southern side of it so we have fairly warm, moist air but

:24:17.:24:23.

it leaves us with fog. Tomorrow the breeze or pick-up, it could shift

Thursday we have Storm Doris, the greatest impact is further north but

:24:34.:24:39.

we will see gusts of 40 to 50 mph. Acquired today on Friday, light

:24:40.:24:42.

winds and a little more in the way of sunshine. There's been a lot of

cloud today. You can see we've had light rain and drizzle two. Earlier

today one of our went to the North coast of Cornwall. The breeze is

dropping receives an little but you can see the extent of the cloud,

:24:59.:25:03.

it's solid, it's low. Poor visibility, low cloud. Many of us

:25:04.:25:08.

have not seen the sun today. That will continue through tonight. Out

hill fog. Temperatures by night what you would expect by day, falling to

:25:23.:25:26.

around eight or 9 degrees. That means tomorrow has a similar start.

:25:27.:25:32.

Low cloud, rain. Rain is light and patchy but could turn heavier over

them higher ground. The breeze could pick up lifting the cloud but I

:25:38.:25:40.

think you will be fairly lucky if you see the sun. Temperatures still

doing very well for the time of year, most places making it into

double figures. One or two spots could hit 11 or 12 degrees. For the

:25:48.:25:53.

Isles of Scilly there will be a lot of cloud, mainly dry, but extensive

:25:54.:25:58.

mist and fog, and the wind is picking up in the afternoon and

:25:59.:26:01.

overnight. Here are the times of high water. Roughly three in the

:26:02.:26:07.

morning and afternoon. In terms of service, we have slightly bigger

:26:08.:26:10.

waves towards the north coast, down towards the south we have three to

:26:11.:26:19.

five foot and messy. A breezy day tomorrow, rains from West to

south-west. There will be rain and drizzle on and off through the

:26:25.:26:29.

course of the day, visibility moderate or good occasionally poor.

:26:30.:26:33.

Tomorrow is a mild day, very little difference between today and

:26:34.:26:36.

tomorrow. If anything we will see a little more breeze. Thursday we will

:26:37.:26:40.

see a spell of rain early on clearing by lunchtime and while many

:26:41.:26:45.

of us will see sunshine, from lunchtime onwards we will get the

:26:46.:26:50.

in the warning area but we could see in the warning area but we could see

:26:51.:26:56.

some strong winds. In Devon and Cornwall we could see gusts of 40 to

:26:57.:27:02.

50 mph. A slightly cooler at night Thursday into Friday. And we should

:27:03.:27:09.

then see more in a way of sunshine on Friday but it will be cooler. It

:27:10.:27:15.

turns milder through the weekend. Wind is picking up on Saturday, a

:27:16.:27:19.

lot of cloud with some fairly heavy downpours.

:27:20.:27:22.

A reminder of the top story. Major incident has been declared after a

:27:23.:27:29.

fire broke out in the leisure centre in central Exeter. One person

:27:30.:27:34.

received minor burns. We will have the latest on tonight's late news.

:27:35.:27:40.

That is all for tonight from us. Good night.
