Hundreds of people have marched through Chelsea to campaign

:00:00.:00:18.

against the closure of children's heart services at the

:00:19.:00:20.

It's one of the leading centres in the country,

:00:21.:00:23.

but NHS England says it doesn't conform to new rules.

:00:24.:00:26.

Liam, here on the right, is eight years old.

:00:27.:00:38.

His family say that without the Royal Brompton Hospital

:00:39.:00:40.

Liam's heart condition means he's treated every six months.

:00:41.:00:46.

When he needs to go for surgery, I can wholeheartedly hand him over,

:00:47.:00:54.

If that goes, I've got to try and trust somebody else and I just

:00:55.:00:59.

It's not just campaigners here, doctors, nurses and local

:01:00.:01:04.

NHS England says the hospital doesn't conform to new rules.

:01:05.:01:11.

Those here say the new rules don't make sense.

:01:12.:01:23.

I think the effect on the Royal Brompton's other

:01:24.:01:25.

And I think NHS England need to go away and rethink their plans.

:01:26.:01:32.

The march has been organised by Trudy Nichols.

:01:33.:01:34.

Anyone who has got a sick child, any parent, I think,

:01:35.:01:38.

you know you'll do anything for your child.

:01:39.:01:40.

Anything to fight for your child, really.

:01:41.:01:42.

I personally feel I will do anything to fight for this hospital,

:01:43.:01:45.

It's not just about a hospital, it's a whole way of life, a community.

:01:46.:01:53.

Campaigners here think NHS England has already made its mind up

:01:54.:01:56.

about these closures, but it says there is a consultation

:01:57.:01:58.

period open now and it's listening to everyone's opinions.

:01:59.:02:00.

That consultation period runs until the 8th of June.

:02:01.:02:03.

In Victorian times, Amelia Dyer is believed to have

:02:04.:02:12.

Now, a family in Reading has made a discovery in their attic,

:02:13.:02:17.

Peter Cooke has been finding out what it is.

:02:18.:02:32.

A clearout of a family loft led Richard Anderson

:02:33.:02:34.

Came across here, and uncovered this bag.

:02:35.:02:39.

Inside, materials used by Victorian serial killer Amelia Dyer.

:02:40.:02:42.

Materials which help Richard's relative arrest her.

:02:43.:02:43.

When I found out that my great, great grandfather was the detective

:02:44.:02:46.

that arrested Amelia Dyer, we put two and two together

:02:47.:02:49.

and realised what a sort of grisly thing we had up in the loft.

:02:50.:02:52.

If you open this up quite gently, because it's very fragile...

:02:53.:03:03.

He's donated it to Thames Valley Police's Museum.

:03:04.:03:07.

This here, very macabre, I'm afraid, but this here is the white edging

:03:08.:03:10.

tape used to actually strangle Helena Fry.

:03:11.:03:16.

Helena Fry just one of hundreds of victims.

:03:17.:03:18.

A lack of support for single mothers led to the creation

:03:19.:03:21.

of baby forming businesses, people acting as fostering agents

:03:22.:03:23.

There was a trade going on with set rates, they paid a weekly fee,

:03:24.:03:36.

the child would more than likely survive,

:03:37.:03:37.

premium, it was pretty much like signing a death sentence.

:03:38.:03:41.

Amelia Dyer was a mother who became known as a monster.

:03:42.:03:44.

She was hanged for her baby farming murders in 1896.

:03:45.:03:46.

A giant "super freezer" is being used by Fulham Football Club

:03:47.:03:49.

It's called a cryotherapy unit, where players spend two-minutes

:03:50.:03:58.

standing in temperatures of minus 120 degrees.

:03:59.:04:02.

This is mainstream practice in Poland for rheumatoid arthritis,

:04:03.:04:06.

any inflammatory pathology, multiple sclerosis we've seen.

:04:07.:04:11.

There's no reason, with the reported feedback about sleep,

:04:12.:04:14.

why this couldn't be used for people with insomnia.

:04:15.:04:18.

A toddler from Essex, who has Down's syndrome,

:04:19.:04:22.

has been chosen to be one of the new faces of the high

:04:23.:04:25.

Lily Beddall from Harlow was approached by a modelling

:04:26.:04:28.

agency, and her mother says she's very proud because "beauty

:04:29.:04:30.

comes in all shapes, sizes and abilities".

:04:31.:04:35.

I just want her to have every possibility in life and never let

:04:36.:04:39.

There's no limits for our little girl.

:04:40.:04:44.

We'll make sure she has every opportunity and does everything

:04:45.:04:46.

Any showers should pass tomorrow morning, leaving a dry afternoon.

:04:47.:04:52.

Hello, the mild areas going to be with us into next week. Things set

:04:53.:05:22.

to be cooler with a return to overnight frost for some. This

:05:23.:05:25.

evening and overnight will be mild across the board, a messy picture,

:05:26.:05:29.

looks like Scotland Northern Ireland and northern England seeing the fair

:05:30.:05:32.

share of the rain, some quite heavy at times. A blustery night. Look at

:05:33.:05:37.

the temperatures, 9-11 C. Tomorrow, mild and windy very windy across

:05:38.:05:42.

England and Wales and there will be rain in the forecast. It starts off

:05:43.:05:46.

quite wet Sunday morning across Northern Ireland, much of Scotland,

:05:47.:05:50.

that band of rain sinking south and east into northern England, North

:05:51.:05:54.

and West Wales, as we head into the afternoon. Behind it, cooler and

:05:55.:05:56.

brighter with
