puts mother and baby at extra risk, so the chief midwife for england is encouraging anyone who is pregnant to get theirjab. we want mums and babies to be safe, and indeed their families, and that's why we encourage and urge every pregnant woman in england today to seek some wise counsel, speak to a health professional, and indeed choose to have the vaccine. across london, at king's college hospital, they have about 20 births a day and about two of the mums have covid. most women who get covid in pregnancy will sail through and be absolutely fine, but we see a small number of women who come in with severe breathing difficulties, and we have to act rapidly — they go on ventilators, have to have an emergency delivery for their baby. and, from our point of view, it feels tragic, because these women will now be almost certainly unvaccinated and we know that if they'd been vaccinated it could have been avoided. avoided, because vaccines can make all the difference. since february, 742 pregnant women have been admitted
5:32 am
to hospital with covid symptoms. almost all, 738, have not been vaccinated. four have had a single dose. none were double jabbed. initially, pregnant women were told they should only get the vaccine if they had a higher chance of catching covid or had underlying health problems. since april, though, the advice has been clear. you should get vaccinated during pregnancy. even so, the best estimates suggest that nine in ten pregnant women are not taking up the vaccine. iona's first baby is due in ten weeks. she's struggling to decide whether to get vaccinated or not. she's worried about what would happen if she caught covid, but has concerns about the vaccine. because it's so new, i think that's why i'm still hesitating. so i think that's what's keeping me from getting vaccinated. almost 200,000 pregnant women across america and the uk have had at least one dose
5:33 am
with no safety issues. meanwhile, though, there are signs the delta variant is affecting pregnant women more severely. in the first wave, a quarter of pregnant women in hospital with covid had moderate or severe disease. now it's closer to half. catherine burns, bbc news. maryam will be here at the top of the hour. but first here's the travel show. this week — some of our favourite memories of new york city. from historical landmarks. what we needed to do was to create a real movement, real quality. two hidden treasures. this view is incredible. where creativity is — this view is incredible. where creativity is everywhere. - creativity is everywhere. somebody has to preserve a record of what we have. it's worth it. and everyone has got a story to

living rooms or rooftops in the area, so we have performances pretty much every night in new york and anybody can host, anybody can attend. the idea is that people make a $10 donation to the musicians, which makes this a much cheaper night out than an evening at the orchestra. two and my hectic day in new york, jesse has fixed me up with a bed for the night. hello! hello, are you finding me somewhere to stay? absolutely, follow me. it is a cab. it is a luxury liner taxicab. wait until you see the inside, you are going to love it. that is lovely. to love it. that is lovel . ., , ., that is lovely. here are some complimentary _ that is lovely. here are some complimentary water, - that is lovely. here are some complimentary water, and i that is lovely. here are some l complimentary water, and here is your official taxi pack. haifa is your official taxi pack. how much does — is your official taxi pack. how much does it _ is your official taxi pack. how much does it cost? _ much does it cost? 39. nothing i am doing is illegal. ijust need to make

5:46 am
told me that out of the subway station in new york there were pictures on the walls, and i thought that was very curious, but what got me going deeper besides the fact that i realised some stations were losing their decor so they had to be recorded, and realising this i got concerned and thought well somebody has to preserve a record of what we have. now, it became a bit of a cause for me to record the embellishments of the station. so this is a rather long project, almost a0 years in the making, and not done yet. actually the earlier station that was built was in 190a, and at that time, there was a great movement called the city beautiful movement, when the maia and his council decided that they wanted to establish
5:47 am
new york as noble and attractive as the old european capitals were, are, which americans and new yorkers had always looked after, and the maia decided that we could do better right here in new york also. a good example of a very high design elements in the subway station, the first subway station, the first subway station, the first subway station, brooklyn, it's just one of the dozen designs that are part of the creative history of the station alone, but it is worth it. what i do when i do my project, i have to do it at night, weekends, often you will find me at the library or on the subway drawing pictures on the wall and taking notes on how many mosaics are there, what colour are they, a general description about any

the major platforms. until next time, dickie planning those trips wherever you may be heading, and we will see you soon. by by. well, friday brought quite a nasty spell of weather to some south—western and southern areas of the uk. gale force winds around coasts briefly. they were very, very strong indeed, brought by storm evert. you can see on the satellite picture here thunderstorms and heavy showers inland, generally a really changeable day, but the weather has now shifted into the southern north sea. it's approaching parts of germany and denmark. behind it, you can see from the motion of the arrows, it's a fairly cool north—northwesterly, so it's going to be a fairly
5:57 am
cool day for most of us. really quite nippy, in fact, in the very far north of the country. sunny spells and showers expected. so let's have a look at the early morning hours. that northerly wind blowing across scotland and along the north sea coast. showers there right from the word go, but i think showers are possible almost anywhere early in the morning, apart from the extreme north—west of the country here. temperatures a little on the fresh side, around 12—13 degrees in some spots. and then tomorrow, a pretty cloudy day for many of us — in the morning at least, to start with. then the sunny spells develop but also the showers, and some of them will be heavy. you can see here in the east of the country and the north, some thunderstorms there, too. showers also breaking out across the south. the best of the weather, i suspect, in the north—west of the country, parts of northern ireland, south—western and western scotland and also cornwall, devon and southern wales shouldn't do too bad on saturday. here's a look at
5:58 am
sunday's weather map. the weather still coming in from the north. we have a weather front crossing the country. that is expected to bring showers to more southern areas of the uk on sunday. they should be more confined towards the very far south towards the end of the day. that's how the day starts, so a little on the chilly side in some areas. those northerly winds, feels quite nippy along the north sea coast, could even be around 1a or 15 degrees during the daytime. best spots, i think, in southern wales, maybe northern ireland again, but i think in southern wales and cardiff up to around 21 degrees or so. so here's the weekend summary again and the outlook into next week, not an awful lot changes. there's no warm weather on the way. i think it's going to stay more or less the same — below average and a chance of some showers. that's it. bye— bye.
