A round-up of today's national and international news.
When times arc hard sacrifices are made - Mr Tulley must decide the future of his boatyard, Liz must decide whether Debbie can cope at the Herald. But for light relief, Waggoners' Walk assembles this week for the all-night UFO sky-watch. Donald Fitzroy unveils his detecting equipment to an admiring Arthur; a sceptical Maurice paces the Heath; an enthusiastic Gray receives a friendly visitor ... but not from outer space. Shirley receives a too friendly visitor, and George receives a visitor for dinner ... but something startling puts him off his food.

Live commentary on this Home International championship game.
After opening their title defence against Wales on Saturday, ENGLAND bid to keep up an impressive sequence against the Irish - just one defeat in this fixture in the last 22 years.
Ron Greenwood 's team put five past Ireland in their last meeting - a win that helped put them into the European Championship finals in Italy next month. But they may find the opposition tougher tonight, under the new managership of Billy Bingham.
