News #3 Dogs

News about dogs, trains, water, a prize, sports, and weather.

Good evening, and welcome to the ten o'clock news.

Tonight's main news: two people have been arrested after three dogs were found in an emaciated condition in a city centre flat over the weekend. The two people have been remanded in custody. For now the dogs are being cared for by an animal welfare group and they are expected to make a full recovery.

There will be a train strike tomorrow. City Rail are striking for an expected 24 hours due to wage cuts. Normal train services should resume on Saturday.

The local council is requesting that residents decrease the amount of water that they use due to a water shortage. Hosepipes are banned, and residents are being asked to take showers, not baths.

Now for some good news. A local man has won a national slimming prize. Peter Holden, from Abercorn Avenue, has lost a total of 61 pounds in the past eighteen months, bringing his weight down to thirteen stone. He says his weight loss has given him a new lease of life.

A sports day is being held for the local community this Saturday on the common. There will be different sporting events, including a mums' and dads' race, a football tournament and a tomato throwing contest. Please come along and bring your sports clothes!

And now for the weather. Temperatures are gradually rising and today should be 22 degrees. This warm weather is expected to last for a few days, so ensure you have your suntan lotion on! On Tuesday a cold front from the south will cause temperatures to drop, but only by a few degrees.

Well, thank you for listening. That's all for today. See you tomorrow!
