Good evening. for the news where you are.

:00:10.:00:10.

Two brand new villages are to be built in Devon and Cornwall -

:00:11.:00:13.

plans which have been signed off by the government today.

:00:14.:00:16.

The so-called Garden Villages are proposals to tackle

:00:17.:00:19.

the South West's housing shortage, with Taunton also set

:00:20.:00:21.

The plans include 15 thousand homes near West car close, 5000 homes at

:00:22.:00:40.

Cullompton and 8000 homes across three communities across Taunton.

:00:41.:00:44.

The government is providing 6 million plans nationally to roll out

:00:45.:00:47.

the plans but they will still have to get planning permission.

:00:48.:00:51.

Moss and heather and not a backyard in sight,

:00:52.:00:53.

but soon there could be 1,500 back gardens here as this barren

:00:54.:00:58.

The housing area will go adjacent to the main road,

:00:59.:01:07.

along the strip here with the school behind behind the Sky Tip,

:01:08.:01:10.

which will be retained as part of the heritage park.

:01:11.:01:14.

This is the place of old in the heady day

:01:15.:01:17.

Today, all that's left are ponds, scrubland and towering waste heaps.

:01:18.:01:23.

Some feared it would disappear in the scheme, not so.

:01:24.:01:31.

It is a fundamental part of the plan and it will remain as part

:01:32.:01:34.

People were concerned about when the school would be

:01:35.:01:37.

developed, we said it would be developed right from the very start,

:01:38.:01:40.

People were concerned about employment.

:01:41.:01:44.

There are now plans in place for an employment park,

:01:45.:01:46.

which has now got European funding, so that is good news.

:01:47.:01:49.

We have tried to look at all the aspects people have been

:01:50.:01:52.

concerned about and tried to address them as part of our later proposals.

:01:53.:01:55.

It is not the only garden village plan for the region.

:01:56.:01:58.

Combe in Devon, alongside the M5, will effectively see

:01:59.:02:02.

It's near a motorway, is near a railway line.

:02:03.:02:08.

If you are going to have growth and improvements to towns and areas,

:02:09.:02:12.

these are the best sort of places to put them.

:02:13.:02:15.

There will be a garden town near Taunton.

:02:16.:02:18.

This is what that development looks like.

:02:19.:02:20.

These are the plans for Cornwall's garden village.

:02:21.:02:24.

There have been plans for homes on these old China clay pits

:02:25.:02:27.

for the best part of ten years, but this garden village idea now

:02:28.:02:30.

has government backing, but that doesn't mean to say

:02:31.:02:33.

It still needs planning permission and that will give

:02:34.:02:37.

A man from Torquay who was shot in the head during a robbery

:02:38.:02:48.

at his parents' restaurant in Antigua is being flown back

:02:49.:02:50.

to the UK today by air ambulance, after a crowdfunding campaign

:02:51.:02:54.

37-year-old Christopher Tester was wounded in the attack

:02:55.:02:58.

on Christmas Day while trying to protect his mother.

:02:59.:03:01.

He's due to land at Exeter later tonight, before being transferred

:03:02.:03:04.

Police have issued a health warning following a New Year's Day fire at

:03:05.:03:13.

They say the building on the esplanade could be

:03:14.:03:17.

contaminated with Weil's disease which is linked to rat urine.

:03:18.:03:20.

Officers say anyone who was on the site before the fire

:03:21.:03:22.

could have been exposed and should seek medical attention.

:03:23.:03:28.

Surgeons at the Royal Eye Infirmary in Plymouth are using

:03:29.:03:30.

a new foot-operated computer system to perform cataract surgery.

:03:31.:03:35.

As Kevin Hay's reports, the technology is only available

:03:36.:03:39.

Even the most skilled surgeon can sometimes do with a helping hand,

:03:40.:03:49.

The last step is where to align my implant inside the eye and eliminate

:03:50.:03:57.

completely the guesswork of where it should be placed.

:03:58.:04:00.

This new bit of kit at Derriford's Royal Eye Infirmary

:04:01.:04:03.

keeps the surgeon's hands free and shows them exactly where to cut.

:04:04.:04:09.

Many of us develop cataracts in old age as cloudy

:04:10.:04:12.

patches form in the eye, making the world look

:04:13.:04:14.

The condition is devastating, but the results of surgery

:04:15.:04:19.

I can look out across a valley and pick out things.

:04:20.:04:27.

I don't need to use my magnifying glass so much.

:04:28.:04:34.

So this ?600,000 investment in equipment here is hoping to put

:04:35.:04:39.

this unit at the forefront of eye surgery in the 21st-century.

:04:40.:04:49.

One of North Devon's largest employers is celebrating its 50th

:04:50.:04:51.

Dartington Crystal says its future is looking good despite rising

:04:52.:04:57.

50 years of hypnotic, handmade history.

:04:58.:05:08.

Dartington Crystal based in Torrington is the last

:05:09.:05:11.

large-scale manufacturer of handmade crystal glass in Britain.

:05:12.:05:17.

When the factory opened in 1967, the workforce was mostly Swedish.

:05:18.:05:21.

A point of interest for the reporter.

:05:22.:05:24.

Listen out for the voice of a young Angela Rippon.

:05:25.:05:27.

How do you find working with English workmen?

:05:28.:05:30.

Brian Cook was born and bred in Torrington.

:05:31.:05:41.

He joined Dartington Crystal straight from school

:05:42.:05:44.

I'm now one of the master blowers, one of the top workers

:05:45.:05:53.

I have always loved it here, because it is such a good community

:05:54.:05:58.

and I have loved working here and learning the job,

:05:59.:06:01.

which is very, very interesting once you get into it.

:06:02.:06:06.

In the last few years, we have doubled the turnover and we have got

:06:07.:06:10.

I would not like to say there are never any doubts

:06:11.:06:16.

about the future climate, obviously after Brexit

:06:17.:06:18.

there are still uncertainties, but I think we are able to adapt

:06:19.:06:21.

and change as it comes along and I have every expectation that it

:06:22.:06:24.

200,000 visitors come to the factory every year to watch these

:06:25.:06:32.

A crystal clear day for many of us today.

:06:33.:06:40.

With the forecast, here's Ian Fergusson.

:06:41.:06:47.

We are in for a cold night, more particularly across north and

:06:48.:06:55.

eastern parts as we see a Met Office warning for parts of East and North

:06:56.:07:00.

East Devon, Somerset and Dorset where temperatures will be low

:07:01.:07:04.

enough to give a threat of some slippery surfaces. Temperatures down

:07:05.:07:11.

to freezing all below and in some areas, we could see as locals -4

:07:12.:07:19.

minus five. Could be the old patch of freezing fog around, most areas

:07:20.:07:23.

will be clear of that. A good deal of sunshine and then a bit more

:07:24.:07:31.

cloud around. Eventually by the tail end of the day, thicker cloud is

:07:32.:07:36.

moving in from the north. A few spots of light rain. Temperatures

:07:37.:07:42.

tomorrow getting as high as 6-8 C and through the rest of the week, a

:07:43.:07:45.

lot of dry weather. Rain on Friday. I'm back with the late

:07:46.:07:48.

news at 10.20pm. Good evening. It has been turning

:07:49.:08:11.

colder and clearer and our weather watchers have been capturing the

:08:12.:08:16.

sunshine. Here is the scene in Derbyshire and where we have had the

:08:17.:08:20.

clear skies by day, we are in for a cold night tonight. Temperatures

:08:21.:08:24.

already plummeting, particularly towards the south with some icy

:08:25.:08:29.

stretches across parts of central and southern England, and into

:08:30.:08:32.

Wales. For the north-west, not as cold, as we have the cloud building.

:08:33.:08:38.

But to the south we could see temperatures down to minus four or

:08:39.:08:41.

five first thing Tuesday morning. If

:08:42.:08:43.
