Newsreader: This is the 10 o’clock news on the BBC with Daniel Brown and Gemma Parker.
The terrible earthquake in Turkey has already claimed more than 100 lives. The rescue operation continues and 12 more people were saved today. Desperate crowds of relatives of those who still may be found under the wreckage surrounded the site. The police had to block all access to the dormitory of a boarding school, as the rescue workers are worried that any unauthorized movement towards the building will lead to its total collapse, burying anybody who might be still alive.
And now for domestic news. The government has announced a large-scale plan for creating new jobs. By the end of the coming year more than 100000 new vacancies will be created around the country in tourism, hotel and catering services, and in small and medium enterprises. The new programme is aimed at increasing employment among young people and those without proper qualifications. The rate of unemployment in these groups has risen steadily in the last three years.
Young people taking A levels this year will not only face tough exams at school and competition on the job market, but entry to popular university courses – in management, computing, economics and law – is also very difficult. At the same time, the number of school leavers applying for teacher-training courses has dropped by half in the last five years.
Now to sport. Today Manchester United won their last but one match of the season and made sure of winning the premiership title. Thousands of football fans celebrated the victory through the night in Manchester, but without serious clashes according to police reports. This victory leave Manchester United five points clear of the second team Liverpool.
Finally, the weather report – we are incredibly lucky with spring this year, which once again proves that British springs can be much better than our summers. With the exception of some showers in the Scottish Highlands we’ll have a warm and sunny day tomorrow, with temperatures reaching an unbelievable 25’C! Thousands of motorists will be heading for the seaside this weekend and there are likely to be serious traffic jams on the motorways, so tune in to BBC local radio, which will give you traffic information. Have a nice weekend!
