I'm Amanda Goodman. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time

:00:00.:00:13.

Organisers say more than 400 people attended an open day

:00:14.:00:16.

as they looked to extend the hand of friendship between religions.

:00:17.:00:21.

Representatives of the Chelmsford Central Mosque said it was important

:00:22.:00:24.

particularly since US president Donald Trump's travel ban.

:00:25.:00:28.

It is part of a series of events being held

:00:29.:00:32.

across the country to promote a better understanding of Islam.

:00:33.:00:39.

But today a call to the community to come to

:00:40.:00:48.

Chelmsford mosque to better understand Islam.

:00:49.:00:49.

Caroline came with her friend and colleague, both are

:00:50.:00:51.

worried about the rise of Islamophobia.

:00:52.:00:53.

There is an outright hate of Islam, knowing full well

:00:54.:00:57.

what Islam is, and there is a fear of Islam.

:00:58.:01:00.

Because often the fear of the unknown, as I said.

:01:01.:01:07.

Events like this bring out the unknown into the known.

:01:08.:01:12.

With all the hatred, I felt it was really important to come

:01:13.:01:15.

We have been friends for a long time, and just to

:01:16.:01:20.

I do not believe in what Trump is doing.

:01:21.:01:24.

Within an hour of opening over 100 people were here

:01:25.:01:34.

hearing first-hand what Muslims are doing in Essex.

:01:35.:01:36.

It is about dispelling myths and cutting a link

:01:37.:01:39.

with what some media has been doing with creating a link between Islam

:01:40.:01:46.

So things like this will help basically show we condemn

:01:47.:01:54.

all forms of terrorism and it does not matter

:01:55.:01:57.

what religion or faith they

:01:58.:02:00.

We are just showing we are part of the society, like anyone else.

:02:01.:02:04.

With Donald Trump planning to rejuvenate his travel ban, and an

:02:05.:02:06.

opinion poll out last week saying more Europeans

:02:07.:02:08.

support his move, it is hoped events like this will improve the people of

:02:09.:02:13.

Chelmsford Muslims have extended a hand

:02:14.:02:15.

of friendship, and they hope it

:02:16.:02:17.

will change some hearts and minds towards their religion.

:02:18.:02:23.

Three men are in hospital after being hit by a car

:02:24.:02:26.

Police say a silver Vauxhall Antara was driven at the group

:02:27.:02:32.

at the Festival Leisure Park at about 5am yesterday.

:02:33.:02:34.

There had been an argument a short time earlier.

:02:35.:02:36.

A man and a 16-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion

:02:37.:02:39.

Police would like to hear from anybody who witnessed the incident.

:02:40.:02:45.

The leader of Suffolk County Council says there needs to be a national

:02:46.:02:49.

conversation about the future funding of social care.

:02:50.:02:54.

The authority agreed to increase council tax by 3% this

:02:55.:02:57.

week in order to put more money into looking after older people.

:02:58.:03:00.

But Colin Noble said today that putting up council tax was not

:03:01.:03:02.

the answer and the extra money would only go so far.

:03:03.:03:05.

It will just about pay for the national living wage.

:03:06.:03:07.

I think all of us agree the national living wage is an

:03:08.:03:10.

important thing for care workers and the lowest

:03:11.:03:14.

said to the people of Suffolk is we want to apply that,

:03:15.:03:18.

and the bulk of it will go to front-line care

:03:19.:03:22.

workers and lowest paid workers, but there has to be a conversation

:03:23.:03:25.

Now the football, and there have been plenty of goals for teams

:03:26.:03:30.

The headline - Forest felled in chainsaw frenzy,

:03:31.:03:34.

as Norwich raised the reds 5-1, including this goal of the season

:03:35.:03:37.

Alex Prichard scored two of their five a day have as Norwich

:03:38.:03:44.

moved to within two points of the play-offs.

:03:45.:03:47.

Boss Alex Neil said, "We could have had nine

:03:48.:03:49.

Mick McCarthy was also delighted as Ipswich won 1-0 at Villa

:03:50.:03:55.

with a late goal from lonanee Hughes, his first four Town.

:03:56.:03:58.

McCarthy said, "I never doubted the character of the team.

:03:59.:04:00.

In League One, Northampton were the only one of our

:04:01.:04:04.

They were the only ones to score, also, beating Chesterfield 3-1

:04:05.:04:08.

John-Joe O'Toole scored twice and Mark Richards got the other.

:04:09.:04:12.

Elsewhere, 1-0 defeats for Southend, Peterborough, and MK Dons.

:04:13.:04:14.

In League Two Luton came from behind to beat Crawley town 2-1.

:04:15.:04:17.

Top scorer Danny Hilton saved the day, scoring both goals to win

:04:18.:04:21.

it and lift the Hatters into fourth, three points off the automatic

:04:22.:04:24.

Colchester beat Barnet 2-1 with goals from Guthrie,

:04:25.:04:28.

Long and Lowe and a second from Brendan Dickenson just before

:04:29.:04:31.

the break leaving them ninth, two points from the pack.

:04:32.:04:33.

Stevenage could also have grand designs on the mix

:04:34.:04:35.

That's three wins on the bounce and they are now four points off

:04:36.:04:40.

the play-off places After goals from Schumacher, Godden and Pett.

:04:41.:04:44.

Matt Godden with eight in eight games now, taking his tally

:04:45.:04:47.

There's been snow in many parts of the region today.

:04:48.:04:55.

But what does the weather hold over the next few days?

:04:56.:04:58.

Good evening. Only a little more cold weather before milder

:04:59.:05:12.

temperatures next week but tonight we have seen the back of any

:05:13.:05:17.

outbreak sort is largely dry night. Feel the cloudy and some clear

:05:18.:05:22.

spoils -- clear spells later on but quite windy. Hopefully no frost. The

:05:23.:05:29.

model that is wind biting along the coast in particular with gusts of up

:05:30.:05:37.

to 40 mph. Some bright spells and even some sunshine. The further

:05:38.:05:40.

south you are the more likely you are to see that. Much higher

:05:41.:05:44.

temperatures than the past few days but not feeling that way because of

:05:45.:05:49.

the wind. Continuing to be quite windy on Tuesday and Wednesday but

:05:50.:05:54.

we start to see double figures, so much milder weather by the end of

:05:55.:05:55.

the week. We're back at 11.20 tonight,

:05:56.:05:56.

a little later than usual. But, for all of us,

:05:57.:06:00.

have a great evening. Good evening, dull, grey, cold,

:06:01.:06:14.

miserable. And that's just me! The weather hasn't been great leader for

:06:15.:06:19.

most of us, it will be chilly out there with this

:06:20.:06:21.
