let's discuss this further with former federal prosecutor. welcome to the programme. if we begin with both drake and travis scott, what are their legal ramifications? it travis scott, what are their legal ramifications?- travis scott, what are their legal ramifications? it is such an interesting _ legal ramifications? it is such an interesting case _ legal ramifications? it is such an interesting case and - legal ramifications? it is such an interesting case and if- legal ramifications? it is such an interesting case and if you j an interesting case and if you have any other performer, typically, you wouldn't find some sort of liability if the crowd decided to do something like this and unfortunately for travis scott, he has a specific history of encouraging the sort of behaviour, he has even been arrested for it. so on the civil side, arrested for it. so on the civilside, he arrested for it. so on the civil side, he really does face a lot of liability in my opinion because he has that history, because they were foreseeable events that he was encouraging. as far as drake and any of the other parties that were involved, i think that were involved, i think that investigation needs to expose a further facts about how much they knew, how much responsibility they had, in order to kind of determine what liability they face. but i
5:06 am
think civil lee, travis scott will certainly be in trouble. criminally, that is another thing investigation has to further reveal fact to determine how that will play out how it was run, has a curate was, who will face liability from that point of view? sure, and these venues have a lot of insurance because of these very issues. there are a lot of safety concerns, a lot of precautions they need to take, specifically when they have a performer who has such a history. so again, a lot of this will depend on exactly what facts play out in the investigation at all of these parties could very well face liability and will very well have insurance coverage to cover some of that, to the extent that there has been so much injury, i think a lot of people will get pulled into this and how much involvement they had will probably dictate

5:27 am
for much of scotland and northern ireland, and to the south across southern and eastern england. and this front is set to stick around through wednesday and thursday, slowly making its way south across the uk. turning things quite murky, i think, across southern and eastern england into the small hours of wednesday, but it will stay very mild here. that slightly colder air sneaks further south into scotland into the small hours of wednesday. we could see a patchy frost inside some of the sheltered glens to the north. here's our front on wednesday, still lurking to the south of the uk. it's looking much clearer. further north for scotland and northern ireland, there should be some sunshine, just the chance of a few scattered showers in the far north and west. some sunshine for northern england and wales and an improved picture on tuesday. whereas for southern and eastern counties of england, it will be much grayer, much gloomier and there's a chance some patchy rain on and off. and then for thursday, still the remnants of that weather front close to the south of the uk could mean some thicker cloud around here for a time
5:28 am
and a little bit of rain. but actually for thursday, we are largely focusing on a ridge of high pressure, a lot of fine weather and light winds. i think potentially some rain getting into northern ireland by the end of the day, and the wind starting to kick up and here's why. this area of low pressure looks like it could deepen for the end of the week and come swinging our way from the atlantic. quite a bit of uncertainty as to when and where exactly on friday that low will move in, but do keep it in the back of your mind as the potential for strong winds on friday.
