temperatures fairly blustery winter. temperatures easing down, 12—15 for many but still warm across the south with temperatures 18 in london and maybe 20 still in cardiff. however, once that strip of cloud is through the cold front, we will start to see those temperatures coming back a little bit closer to average for the time of year. there will be a lot of dry weather next week as high pressure tends to build them. the exception of scotland, where on monday we will see the wind picked up monday we will see the wind picked up for a time and there will be more general outbreaks of rain but really, that is about it. through the rest of the week, high pressure starts to dominate and we will see temperatures getting closer to average for the time of year, london, 1a or 15 is right and those temperatures just easing back for everyone. a couple of warm days and much more sunshine to come for many across england as we go through tomorrow. thank you. a reminder of our top story... as some of britain's's biggest businesses lobby government over soaring gas cost, the steel industry

released a statement saying the players will tour on the basis that several conditions are met. laura scottjoins us now. what else have they had to stay in the statement? we know that the players were updated on sunday about the latest updates they'd had from cricket australia and the australian government. we knew the board were meeting today, and they released the statement in the last hour saying they've made excellent progress in moving forward with the england's mentor. to facilitate further progress and allow squats to be selected, the ecb gave its approval for the tour to go ahead. it is subject to several critical conditions being met, and they said they look forward to the ongoing assistance in involving these matters. as far as we know, the tour
6:34 pm
is going ahead and will start on the 8th of december. but it is subject to these critical conditions, and we aren't sure what those are. but it is interesting that they have enough players. they are talking about a squad selection, but they needed to give some sort of an update today on their position and their point of view from an ecb perspective. sounds like there are — view from an ecb perspective. sounds like there are still _ view from an ecb perspective. sounds like there are still a _ view from an ecb perspective. sounds like there are still a few— view from an ecb perspective. sounds like there are still a few hoops - view from an ecb perspective. sounds like there are still a few hoops to - like there are still a few hoops to jump like there are still a few hoops to jump through before the players get on that plane for australia. we heard the likes ofjoe route raising their concerns. when are we likely to hear any more about that, if players are going to pull out? joe ——the - - the ccb — — the ccb statement will give them a lot to think about. they've got a
6:35 pm
decision to make, and we know most of the players were thinking about things like whether their families would be able to come and what the restrictions for them would be like. the bubble arrangements, we know a lot of these players have been playing in these environments for most of the last 18 months, and it is this unique setup. they are playing in five different states and australia have some of the strictest restrictions in the world. players will want to know if there was a rise in community cases, what with the ramifications be. these are all things that the players wanted answers to. but we know that there are players who have spoken out about their doubts and uncertainties about their doubts and uncertainties about whether they wanted to be part of this tour. jos butler was one of them and he said he was open to saying no to going. joe root is not

answer. it's very different than the situation in new york. she dealt magnificently with the pressure as she won the title without dropping a set, but now she faces other... even though she wants to continue to play, it's not always quite that easy when you're aware that there are greater expectations of you now. you are... andrew richardson, a coach from childhood, and was part of that magnificent run in new york. he is no longer part of her coaching team, so that is one pillar that has been removed since new york. obviously, new surroundings and new feeling for raducanu, but she's not the only player in this situation

6:52 pm
autographs too long after practice sessions, and she needs to be a bit less nice and say no sometimes. could be another interesting week in the story of emma raducanu. russell, thanks very much. history could be made at old trafford this weekend. the french side would be the first foreign side to lift the trophy. the dragons have completely turned their fortunes around, but this french revolution takes back much longer than that. where there are dragons, there should be smoke. this is at least 700 miles from english rugby league a's heartlands, which seems to have this sport it sold. now they have a team that can fend off their fire in winning this semifinal. catalan move within 80 minutes of becoming the
