The Great Storm 20 years on

On 16th October 1987, southern Britain was hit by hurricane force winds, the worst storm to occur in Britain since 1703. Twenty years on, Britain is remembering the devastation caused by what came to be known as 'The Great Storm.' 15 million trees were uprooted due to the wind, as well as the fact that a wet autumn in general had made the ground very muddy.

The falling trees caused destruction to buildings and vehicles, and blocked roads and railway lines, causing everyone from commuters to school-children to stay at home. There were also black-outs across the area, as power lines were damaged by falling trees and flying debris. People resorted to candles and torches for light, and gas stoves and open fires to cook food.

The storm raged for 4 hours before dawn and claimed 18 lives. The effects of the bad weather were heightened by the fact that most people were completely unprepared because the weather forecasters were caught out.

Earlier that week, weather forecasts had predicted severe weather. But forecasters thought it would miss Britain and only affect the English Channel.

The freak storm caused damage of more than £1billion pounds and hundreds of people sustained injuries.

But could the same thing happen today in Britain? Well, as a result of climate change many people think that sudden and severe weather changes are more likely. However, meteorological technology has improved and now uses satellites to get a much more accurate picture of future weather. So if another Great Storm comes along, the British public should be better warned and prepared!

Sudan teacher arrested over teddy bear

A 54 year old British primary school teacher has been arrested in Sudan accused of insulting Islam's prophet by allowing her class of 7 year olds to name a teddy bear Mohammed. Gillian Gibbons could face several months in jail if she's convicted of blasphemy under Sudanese law. Amber Henshaw has more.

Gillian Gibbons' colleagues at Unity High School in the Sudanese capital said they feared for her safety. They said there were reports that young men had already started gathering outside the Khartoum police station where she's being held.

The 54 year old primary teacher was arrested at her house in the school compound on Sunday afternoon. State media said she was being charged with blasphemy after allowing her class of 6 and 7 year olds to choose their favourite name for a teddy bear they were using as part of a school project. The pupils voted to call the cuddly toy Mohammed.

The school said Miss Gibbons had been following a British educational course designed to teach the children about animals and their habitats. She was taken into custody after complaints to the Ministry of Education.

Unity High School's director, Robert Bulos, insisted that the teacher had made an innocent mistake but he said he was concerned it could have serious consequences. As a result the school has decided to close until January. British Embassy officials in Khartoum are visiting Gillian Gibbons in custody.

Spice Girls launch reunion tour

The British pop group Spice girls have done their first show of the reunion tour - they played Vancouver, Canada. They were famous for bringing the world 'girl power' and are doing more than 40 shows around the world - they plan to hit five continents. Heather Alexander was there.

It was a sell out show - almost 16,000 people packed into Vancouver's GM Place to see the five together on stage for the first time since they broke up.

Many had come dressed as Spice Girls saying they had waited their whole lives to see them.

The five women had a lot to prove in this show and the verdict from fans afterwards was that they had impressed.

Many leaving said they thought it was amazing and most had bought some of the Spice Girls merchandise that was on sale.

With their share of that, plus the percentage of the tickets sales and sponsorship deals, the girls are looking at ten million pounds or twenty million dollars each.

Kenya bees save elephants

Kenyan villagers have struggled for a long time with elephants wandering onto their farmland. New research, however, shows that there may be a simple solution, and one which is kind to the elephants. This report from Sunita Nahar:

It's not mice that scare elephants but creatures much much smaller.

(FX - BEES)

This is the gentle buzz of bees in the English countryside but the angry buzz of their fiercer cousins in Kenya is such that it terrifies the giant beasts.

Lucy King, a zoologist who led a study by Save the Elephant group, says that nearly all the elephants exposed to a recording of bees immediately ran away, in contrast to those who heard a recording of background static. With the bees, they stopped what they were doing, turned to the speaker from where the buzzing was coming and turned their heads from side to side trying to locate the noise. Their trunks were all up in the air until one of them signalled a retreat and they all fled.

Lucy King says angry residents in Kenya have been known to shoot at elephants when they trample their crops. Building electric fences wasn't practical so her group decided to test a Kenyan folktale about bees to save the elephants instead.
