Palestinian president raises the stakes and takes a gamble by

:00:16.:00:20.

announcing he will be asking for recognition as a member state next

:00:20.:00:26.

week at the UN. TRANSLATION: We will be going to the United Nations

:00:26.:00:31.

to ask for a legitimate right we choose to obtain, full membership

:00:31.:00:37.

of the state of Palestine. Fierce fighting in two Libyan towns still

:00:37.:00:41.

held by pro-Gadaffi forces as the new interim Government gets Libya's

:00:41.:00:46.

UN seat. Europe's leaders are warned by

:00:46.:00:49.

America at a finance summit in Poland that the euro crisis

threatens the global economy it will stop all hope extinguished as

police confirm a four men trapped in a flooded coal mine in South

:00:56.:01:01.

Wales have all been found dead. It may sound like something out of

:01:01.:01:06.

Star Wars, but American astronomers have say they have discovered a

:01:06.:01:16.
:01:16.:01:20.

Hello and welcome. The Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has

:01:20.:01:24.

confirmed he will go to the UN Security Council next week to ask

:01:24.:01:29.

for a full UN membership. It is a bold move because it would amount

:01:29.:01:34.

to an implicit recognition of state of. Washington has already said it

:01:34.:01:39.

will veto any such vote, set in the Palestinians on a collision course.

:01:39.:01:44.

International, televised address, Mahmoud Abbas said he will apply

:01:44.:01:51.

for a state within the 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital.

:01:51.:01:54.

Here is Jeremy Bowen. The campaign for a Palestinian

:01:54.:01:59.

membership of the UN stopped the traffic in a manner in the Israeli

:01:59.:02:03.

occupied West Bank. Israel and the Americans say going to the UN could

:02:03.:02:10.

put a stop to any chance of peace. President Mahmoud Abbas, and a

:02:10.:02:17.

speech broadcast live from Ramallah, announced his determination to go

:02:17.:02:20.

ahead with an application be Americans say they will veto.

:02:20.:02:24.

TRANSLATION: We are going to the UN to ask for the legitimate right of

:02:24.:02:28.

full membership. We will take with us the suffering and hope of our

:02:28.:02:37.

people. He rejected criticism he wanted to not legitimise Israel. He

:02:37.:02:43.

said the occupation and settlement of the lands Israel captured in

:02:43.:02:48.

1967 is that what Palestinians want as a state. Palestinians say they

:02:48.:02:52.

have rehearsed long enough. Their security forces on another practice

:02:52.:02:56.

run are ready for independence, they say, along with all the other

:02:56.:03:03.

institutions a state needs. But Israel's stubbornness, the

:03:03.:03:06.

President said, mean that decisions are at a dead end, so they are

:03:06.:03:13.

turning to the UN. Israel's campaign against includes a video,

:03:13.:03:18.

blaming the Palestinians for not accepting a Jewish state. What

:03:18.:03:24.

about security arrangements? What about Jerusalem? It all needs to be

:03:24.:03:29.

in an agreement. In an agreement you give and take. In a resolution

:03:29.:03:35.

they just take. This is a big mistake. This is not what it seems.

:03:35.:03:40.

Both sides are Israelis. They are rehearsing for an attack by

:03:40.:03:45.

Palestinians on a Jewish settlement in the West Bank. Many Israelis

:03:45.:03:49.

predict a UN vote will touch of such violence. The ingredients of

:03:49.:03:54.

this conflict are always the same. What the Palestinians are trying to

:03:54.:03:58.

do is to change the diplomatic game decisively in their favour. It is a

:03:58.:04:04.

risky strategy, given the hostility of the Israelis and the Americans.

:04:04.:04:07.

The talk of imminent violence may be overdone, but there is no doubt

:04:07.:04:12.

the temperature is rising again. The conflict is going to continue

:04:12.:04:16.

whatever happens next week. The question is whether the

:04:16.:04:23.

Palestinian-UN tactic makes matters better or worse.

:04:23.:04:28.

Let's talk about the implications of the announcement. We are joint

:04:28.:04:33.

from Washington by Ghaith al Omari, a former adviser to Mahmoud Abbas

:04:33.:04:36.

and executive director of the American Task Force on Palestine.

:04:36.:04:44.

Will it make matters worse or better? This as you said raises the

:04:44.:04:49.

stakes. We are in a game of diplomatic chicken, classic and

:04:49.:04:54.

brinkmanship. Everybody will be raising the stakes publicly as

:04:54.:04:59.

intensive activity happens behind the scenes to reach a compromise.

:04:59.:05:07.

The Palestinians might face loss of services on the ground, the

:05:07.:05:12.

Israelis might be isolated, and the UN may be divided. Let's have a

:05:12.:05:17.

look at the Palestinians. It is a unilateral move. The Americans and

:05:17.:05:23.

the Israelis have said that they cannot do that, they have to have

:05:23.:05:26.

they no decision process. But Mahmoud Abbas says in the end, we

:05:26.:05:32.

are going to have made associations. What is he playing at? So he

:05:32.:05:35.

believes in negotiation. He is someone who has spent his whole

:05:35.:05:40.

life advocating negotiations. But there is a sense of frustration.

:05:40.:05:45.

Things have been stalled by reality on the ground and they have been

:05:46.:05:50.

changing in terms of settlement building. He is trying to remind

:05:50.:05:57.

the world that it still exists. The question to ask his do the

:05:57.:06:01.

Palestinians stand to gain or to lose? They are the weaker party in

:06:01.:06:05.

this formula and they might end up losing more than they gain.

:06:06.:06:10.

Washington is unhappy, Congress, of course, and they find a great deal

:06:10.:06:15.

of activities on the West Bank. That money could be threatened if

:06:15.:06:20.

he carries on with theirs. absolutely. I have been involved in

:06:20.:06:23.

the peace process for a long time and I have seen diplomatic

:06:23.:06:27.

disagreements come and go. But there is one thing that has been

:06:27.:06:32.

happening on the ground over the last couple of years. In terms of

:06:32.:06:36.

improving the economy, the institution building and relied,

:06:36.:06:40.

this might be the ultimate victim of this move and that would be

:06:40.:06:47.

truly tragic. That institution building project is working. What

:06:47.:06:52.

about a compromise, a water down membership of the UN, and observers

:06:52.:06:56.

stayed for the Palestinians, like the Vatican? There are many

:06:56.:07:06.
:07:06.:07:08.

similarities. These are being proposed. Tony Blair has been

:07:08.:07:13.

having great efforts to propose ideas. There is a great chance for

:07:13.:07:19.

that. At the end of the day, this is a diplomatic blip and we go back

:07:19.:07:26.

to what will ease matters, getting a closer solution. It has been far

:07:26.:07:29.

easier for Libya's interim Government to get their seat at the

:07:29.:07:35.

UN, despite opposition from some African and Latin American members.

:07:35.:07:39.

The National Transitional Council now hold their seat at the General

:07:39.:07:42.

Assembly. Libyan forces backing the interim Government are renewing

:07:42.:07:48.

their attacks on Sirte and Bani Walid, another one of Gaddafi's few

:07:48.:07:53.

remaining strongholds. In Bani Walid fighters have pulled back

:07:53.:08:01.

under heavy fire. Richard Galpin has this report. This new assault

:08:01.:08:09.

on Bani Walid began early in the morning. Fighters loyal to the

:08:09.:08:13.

interim Government picking their way through the streets, trying to

:08:13.:08:18.

push forward towards their goal, the town centre. But it is slow and

:08:19.:08:27.

dangerous. Close by are Colonel Gaddafi's snipers and other gunmen.

:08:27.:08:32.

There may be more fighters involved in the attack this time, but it is

:08:32.:08:39.

still proving to be a tough fight for control of what is a key town.

:08:39.:08:43.

A new front has also opened up in the battle for the strategic

:08:44.:08:49.

coastal town of Sirte, Colonel Gaddafi's birthplace. Thousands of

:08:49.:08:54.

fighters closing in from the west and south. They are breaking

:08:54.:08:58.

through the outer defences, getting to within a few miles of the centre

:08:58.:09:05.

and taking control of the airport. But here they are facing fierce

:09:05.:09:09.

resistance from Gaddafi's men. While Colonel Gaddafi's men are

:09:09.:09:13.

making what appears to be a file stand in the towns which they still

:09:13.:09:18.

control, in the capital Tripoli more and more are world leaders

:09:18.:09:21.

have been arriving to give their support to the new, interim

:09:21.:09:28.

Government. Today it was the turn of the Turkish Prime Minister.

:09:28.:09:32.

Tayyip Erdogan was following in the footsteps of the British and French

:09:32.:09:38.

leaders who came here yesterday. He also promised to help Libya make

:09:38.:09:47.

the difficult transition to a democratic country. Speaking in

:09:47.:09:50.

martyrs Square in the heart of Tripoli he praised the Libyans,

:09:50.:09:54.

saying they proved it was impossible for any Government to

:09:54.:09:58.

stand in the way of the might and will of the people. It was a barbed

:09:58.:10:02.

comment aimed at the repressive Government in Syria, another Arab

:10:02.:10:12.
:10:12.:10:12.

country in turmoil. A BBC correspondent from BBC Arabic

:10:12.:10:17.

has been injured was reporting from Bani Walid. Mohammad Ballout, seen

:10:17.:10:22.

here, was preparing to go live on air when he and other journalists

:10:22.:10:26.

were targeted by sniper fire. His injuries are not life-threatening

:10:26.:10:31.

and medical teams are looking after him. As fighters loyal to Libya's

:10:31.:10:34.

interim council make their push into Gaddafi stronghold, other

:10:34.:10:38.

members of his inner circle have gone into hiding. Colonel Gaddafi

:10:38.:10:42.

has pledged to continue the fight in Libya, but some senior aides and

:10:43.:10:47.

family members have sought safety in neighbouring Niger. Thousands of

:10:47.:10:51.

sub-Saharan Africans have also crossed through the desert to

:10:51.:10:59.

escape the war. They were caught in Libya's war,

:10:59.:11:04.

hundreds of refugees, most of them from West Africa, who have

:11:04.:11:08.

travelled hundreds of kilometres across the desert. It is thought

:11:08.:11:18.
:11:18.:11:19.

more than 150,000 have already made it to northern Niger. Senior aides

:11:19.:11:24.

of Colonel Gaddafi reach the capital further south. They had to

:11:24.:11:32.

pass through this checkpoint at the city limits. Convoys loyal to

:11:32.:11:37.

Colonel Gaddafi are being escorted through hundreds of kilometres

:11:37.:11:40.

through the sentry points. The authorities here expect more to

:11:40.:11:44.

come as they struggle to secure the past desert borders owner with

:11:44.:11:51.

Libya. The Government has confirmed that Gaddafi's son, among those now

:11:51.:11:54.

here, it remains under close surveillance, his movements are

:11:54.:12:00.

restricted. Under pressure the Government has defended its actions.

:12:00.:12:06.

Ministers say their main concern are the weapons left over from the

:12:06.:12:16.
:12:16.:12:19.

Libyan war or crossing the border. This concentration is not really

:12:19.:12:28.

these people fleeing the war from Libya. The worst is the arms which

:12:28.:12:37.

can be in any hands. This man is another victim of Libya's award. A

:12:37.:12:41.

Libyan national, he was granted permission to stay in Niger after

:12:41.:12:46.

he fled his home country to escape the violence. He opposed Colonel

:12:46.:12:52.

Gaddafi, but his problem is not that, but old members of the Libyan

:12:52.:12:58.

regime are seeking refuge in Niger. TRANSLATION: It is up to Niger if

:12:58.:13:00.

they want to harbour a senior Gaddafi loyalists, but those guys

:13:00.:13:05.

are rich, we are poor and have nothing at all. Neither the

:13:05.:13:08.

Government here, nor are the NTC leaders can help us. They have

:13:08.:13:14.

offered us nothing. More and more a West Africans have left Libya since

:13:14.:13:18.

Tripoli fell. Many have been accused of working as mercenaries

:13:18.:13:22.

to defend the Gaddafi regime. In countries like Niger they benefited

:13:22.:13:27.

from the former Libyan rule and now that relationship leaves the

:13:27.:13:32.

Government here in an awkward situation.

:13:32.:13:37.

These days any meeting involving EU finance ministers is described as a

:13:37.:13:41.

crisis meeting and certainly today European Union finance ministers

:13:41.:13:46.

got together in Poland to discuss the euro-zone crisis. The United

:13:46.:13:50.

States has also warned that the EU's problems have threaten to

:13:50.:13:54.

undermine further the global economy. But ministers in Poland's

:13:54.:13:59.

delayed a decision until October to pay out a second instalment of a

:13:59.:14:04.

bail-out to Greece. Greece will go bankrupt if it does not receive the

:14:04.:14:09.

funds amounting to $11 billion. They had other central European

:14:09.:14:17.

bank said concerted action was needed. It calls for being alert,

:14:17.:14:23.

putting our house in order in all the countries individually. It also

:14:23.:14:31.

calls for collective orderliness. There are a whole load of decisions

:14:31.:14:40.

to be taken and they have to be full and as rapid as possible and

:14:40.:14:46.

implementation of all the decisions that have been taken have to be

:14:46.:14:51.

rapid. Chris Morris has been following events in Poland. First

:14:51.:14:57.

of all, why did they delayed his decision on the second tranche of

:14:57.:15:03.

money to Greece? It is actually the 6th tranche of money, part of the

:15:03.:15:06.

first bail-out to Greece. The reason it has been delayed is

:15:06.:15:10.

because there is not agree more on how to proceed and the policy is

:15:11.:15:14.

one of carrot and stick. They want to give more money to Greece,

:15:14.:15:18.

partly because they are not ready for the consequences were Greece to

:15:18.:15:22.

have to default on its debts, but there are those countries, Germany

:15:22.:15:28.

among them, who still believe that Greece could be doing more. Instead

:15:28.:15:31.

of a proving this next tranche of money right now, they have delayed

:15:31.:15:37.

it for a few weeks. It means there will be plenty more talk in the

:15:37.:15:42.

next few weeks. It is a bit of a higher risk strategy, especially on

:15:42.:15:47.

a day when so many people have come out and said, no more delay, it is

:15:47.:15:54.

time for action. But that is the way this entity works. 17 different

:15:54.:15:58.

governments in the euro-zone and you have to try and crush all their

:15:58.:16:08.
:16:08.:16:10.

different opinions into one He it must raise serious questions.

:16:10.:16:15.

They say that they can. What they cannot do, and they all admitted,

:16:15.:16:19.

his move as fast as the markets might demand. On the one hand, they

:16:19.:16:25.

are criticised for going too slowly, but on the other hand, they are

:16:25.:16:28.

criticised for not consulting their electric and Parliament. That is

:16:28.:16:32.

what is happening at the moment. Some of the agreements made in an

:16:32.:16:36.

emergency summit in July have to be approved by all 17 parliaments in

:16:36.:16:40.

the eurozone and some parliaments are basically dragging their feet a

:16:40.:16:43.

little because they are unhappy about some of the decisions which

:16:43.:16:49.

have been made. So it is a very difficult political mix. Forcing

:16:49.:16:53.

the pace and tried to get a handle on this while also trying to listen

:16:53.:16:59.

to the voters back home. Thank you very much.

:16:59.:17:05.

Now let us look at some of the other main developments. Human

:17:05.:17:08.

rights activists say that security forces in Syria have shot dead at

:17:08.:17:16.

least 15 people. They say that four people died during a raid in a town

:17:16.:17:22.

near Hammad. They fired at random after Friday prayers. They were

:17:23.:17:26.

seeking to prevent pro-democracy demonstrations. The Prime Minister

:17:26.:17:30.

of Pakistan has said that he will take charge of the belief benefit -

:17:30.:17:36.

- belief that that for millions of victims who have suffered from

:17:36.:17:40.

monsoon rains which have not yet recovered from similar floods last

:17:40.:17:43.

year. The Deputy First Minister of

:17:43.:17:45.

Northern Ireland has announced he is going to run for the Irish

:17:45.:17:50.

presidency. His party Sinn Fein has confirmed that the former IRA

:17:50.:17:54.

leader will contest next month's elections. He is due to be formally

:17:54.:17:57.

endorsed by his party leadership over the weekend.

:17:57.:18:01.

Police have confirmed that all four miners trapped in a flooded coal

:18:01.:18:05.

mine in South Wales since Thursday have been found dead. Rescue

:18:05.:18:09.

workers had been searching through a maze of tunnels to try to save

:18:09.:18:13.

the men. Officials say that everything humanly possible meet --

:18:13.:18:18.

humanly possible had been done. A police investigation is under way.

:18:18.:18:22.

The rescue teams said they had that they met such difficult conditions

:18:22.:18:26.

but they worked day and night in the hope of finding at least one

:18:26.:18:31.

miner still alive. This evening, their hopes were finally dashed.

:18:31.:18:39.

can confirm that the 4th dead miner has now been recovered from the

:18:39.:18:44.

Gleision colliery. On behalf of us all, I would like to express our

:18:44.:18:48.

deepest and most sincere condolences to the families of

:18:48.:18:54.

Philip Hill, David Powell, Garry Jenkins and Charles Bresnan. I can

:18:54.:18:59.

confirm that of the four deceased miners, they were found in close

:18:59.:19:05.

proximity to each other, one was on the exit side of the blockage as we

:19:05.:19:09.

know. The other three were covered this afternoon were all found

:19:09.:19:14.

together in the area where they had been working. Families, friends and

:19:14.:19:17.

neighbours suffered an agonising wait for information in the

:19:17.:19:21.

community centre. Over the course of the day, the news just got worse

:19:21.:19:26.

as one by one, the rescue teams found more bodies. They receive

:19:26.:19:30.

messages of support from around the country and around the world. Gifts

:19:30.:19:35.

of food and toys for the children. This has been a crippling growth --

:19:35.:19:40.

crippling blow. One miner, his wife did not want him to go to work

:19:40.:19:47.

yesterday but he insisted. It is just devastated. Not only for the

:19:47.:19:52.

community but for the whole valley. Everybody is devastated.

:19:52.:19:56.

operation had been hampered by the silt and debris carried by the

:19:56.:19:59.

flood which blocked the tunnels where the four men died. There will

:19:59.:20:03.

be an inquiry into the strategy and politicians from all sides said

:20:03.:20:08.

that their thoughts were with the community. I spoke to the commander

:20:08.:20:12.

and it is clear that the emergency services have done everything they

:20:12.:20:15.

can and worked incredibly hard and have not lacked for anything but it

:20:15.:20:19.

is at a desperately sad situation brought everyone concerned.

:20:19.:20:23.

these are tight-knit communities that this is a tragedy not just for

:20:23.:20:26.

those families but for the community as well. News all the

:20:26.:20:33.

amazing rescue effort that happened but sadly it was in vain -- you saw.

:20:33.:20:36.

Mining has long been at the heart of life in these ballets but now

:20:36.:20:40.

the questions will begin about the risks the miners faced and whether

:20:40.:20:45.

their deaths could have been prevented.

:20:45.:20:49.

A London financial trader wept in court this afternoon as he was

:20:49.:20:54.

charged with fraud in connection with a �1.3 billion loss at the

:20:54.:20:59.

Swiss banking group UBS. The 31- year-old was remanded in custody

:20:59.:21:04.

after the hearing. There was a big media presence at

:21:04.:21:07.

the City of London magistrates' court but this was the only glimpse

:21:07.:21:13.

they got of the man accused of a �1.3 billion fraud. He was remanded

:21:13.:21:18.

in custody until another hearing next week. He wept in court as he

:21:18.:21:22.

stood facing charges of fraud and two of false accounting, one of

:21:22.:21:28.

which dated back to 2008. He was a senior trader in the London office

:21:28.:21:31.

of the Swiss bank UBS. He was arrested at his desk in the early

:21:31.:21:36.

hours of yesterday. It is alleged he dishonestly abused his position,

:21:36.:21:42.

causing losses to the bank. His family home is in Ghana. His father,

:21:42.:21:47.

a former UN official, said that the family was heartbroken and hoping -

:21:47.:21:51.

- hoping to hear his son's side of the stories. Whatever the details

:21:51.:21:56.

of the transactions, the big questions being asked are wide work

:21:56.:21:59.

senior managers not aware of what was going on and how could losses

:21:59.:22:04.

of more than a billion pounds been ranked up with out their knowledge?

:22:04.:22:09.

It is not incredible in the sense that it will be very hard to

:22:09.:22:12.

regulate away any of these sorts of accidents happening. It is very

:22:12.:22:15.

difficult to believe it has happened just now when there is so

:22:15.:22:21.

To minimise risks, there is a technique called hedging. A first

but a second transaction puts money on it going down and it can only go

It may sound like something out of Star Wars but American astronomers

:23:27.:23:32.

say they have discovered a planet orbiting two sons. The Saturn size

:23:33.:23:37.

planet has been named Kepler-16b and it is the first concerned --

:23:37.:23:43.

first confirmed solar system of its kind. It circles the true sons

:23:43.:23:47.

every two ended and 29 days but is thought to be too cold to support

:23:47.:23:54.

life. -- 229 days. I am joined by the astronomer David

:23:54.:23:59.

White House. It is a bit like Star Wars. Didn't star was have a planet

:23:59.:24:04.

that went to run two sons? That is right, it is called Tatooine and

:24:04.:24:08.

there's a famous scene with Luke Skywalker watching the double

:24:08.:24:12.

sunset. It is a gas giant so it does not have a surface but if it

:24:12.:24:18.

has a nude, a rocky moon, then if you look to towards it, you would

:24:18.:24:23.

seek the two sons in your Sky because they are smaller than our

:24:23.:24:31.

Sun and one of them is a yellow and the other is a deep red. That would

:24:31.:24:37.

be blocked by dark scars of sunspots on net, much larger than

:24:37.:24:42.

the sunspots on our staff. It would be a spectacular multi-coloured

:24:42.:24:48.

display which you would see in the sky. You are used start and son at

:24:48.:24:55.

interchangeably? The sun is a star? The sun is a typical staff. This

:24:55.:25:01.

just goes to show that because most from planets and most stars are not

:25:01.:25:06.

like our son, solitary stars, they are part of multiple systems. That

:25:06.:25:09.

is the first one we have found where the planet orbits both of

:25:09.:25:15.

them. As we explore the cosmos, we will no doubt find planets which

:25:15.:25:18.

orbit two stars in a figure of eight orbit or something weird like

:25:18.:25:26.

that. Ballet movements in the solar system. What does this tell us

:25:26.:25:33.

about our Earth, or the space? shows us the diversity of planetary

:25:33.:25:40.

systems. One of the major themes of discovery in recent years is that

:25:40.:25:45.

we have found planets orbiting other stars. Before that, we only

:25:45.:25:49.

knew about our own planets. Now we are finding more and more and these,

:25:49.:25:53.

we are finding weird and wonderful combinations. I know it is a

:25:53.:25:57.

typical question but I have to ask, could there be life potentially?

:25:57.:26:01.

Not on the planet that we have found because it is a gas giant.

:26:01.:26:06.

But if it has a rocky moon, that is a possibility. It is a cold planet,

:26:06.:26:10.

so these two sons are not warming it up? If they are very cool but

:26:10.:26:17.

one of them has huge explosions on the surface and that might make a

:26:17.:26:21.

difference to a rocky moon of Kepler-16b. A I have learnt so much.

:26:21.:26:27.

Thank you very much. A reminder of our main story. The

:26:27.:26:30.

Palestinian President has confirmed that he will ask for full

:26:30.:26:34.

membership of the United Nations next week in a national address

:26:34.:26:41.

from the Mahler on the West Bank, he said that he would apply to the

:26:41.:26:44.

Security Council within the 1967 borders with the capital as east

:26:44.:26:50.

Jerusalem. That is all. Now the weather. Enjoy

:26:50.:27:00.
:27:00.:27:03.

It has been fairly cloudy and this weekend is not looking that

:27:03.:27:08.

inspiring. Blustery showers on the cards for tomorrow. More of the

:27:08.:27:13.

same poll Sunday. That is courtesy to an area of low pressure pushing

:27:13.:27:19.

its way into northern Scotland overnight. Some pretty dusty winds

:27:19.:27:23.

to boot. Where ever you are tomorrow, you are likely to pick up

:27:23.:27:27.

one or two showers. In between, some decent spells of sunshine. It

:27:27.:27:35.

is likely they will become banded together in places. Through

:27:35.:27:40.

southernmost counties, it is a bit hit and miss. Sunny spells and a

:27:40.:27:44.

few scattered showers. It is for south-west England and Wales that

:27:44.:27:47.

are exposed to the dusty south westerly winds where they will be

:27:47.:27:53.

showers packing in for much of the day -- gusty south westerly winds.

:27:53.:27:58.

Further north in Northern Ireland, here again, fairly cloudy and at

:27:58.:28:03.

some scattered showers. They will be on the heavy side at times. For

:28:03.:28:07.

northern Scotland, the remnants of the weather front still bringing
