Hello. stories on the BBC News Channel.

:00:00.:00:14.

First tonight - a 31-year-old from the Clacton-on-Sea area

:00:15.:00:17.

is being questioned by police about the abduction of a child.

:00:18.:00:19.

Kennedy Palmer, who's 15, disappeared three days ago

:00:20.:00:21.

after leaving for school near Ipswich on Thursday morning.

:00:22.:00:28.

An extensive search by the police and her family ensued.

:00:29.:00:31.

She was found this afternoon in North Essex,

:00:32.:00:33.

A swimming pool in Essex remained closed today after four people

:00:34.:00:35.

were taken to hospital following a chemical

:00:36.:00:37.

Witham Leisure centre was evacuated after two chemicals

:00:38.:00:48.

Eight people were treated for breathing difficulties.

:00:49.:00:51.

The move towards more local devolution continues

:00:52.:00:54.

when the new combined authority of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

:00:55.:00:56.

The meeting in Wisbech will appoint members

:00:57.:00:59.

The new body will have control of an extra ?20 million

:01:00.:01:03.

It comes ahead of the election for a new mayor in May.

:01:04.:01:08.

It is not just about Cambridge, not just about the areas that most

:01:09.:01:12.

It is about those parts of Cambridgeshire

:01:13.:01:17.

and Peterborough that sometimes, perhaps, in the past haven't got

:01:18.:01:19.

In terms of real opportunity through power, through money,

:01:20.:01:23.

and the right leadership to make a difference.

:01:24.:01:25.

The MP for Stevenage says he has no regrets about forcing the Government

:01:26.:01:28.

to change its mind over last week's Budget.

:01:29.:01:30.

Stephen McPartland helped force the Chancellor to scrap a

:01:31.:01:32.

planned increase in National Insurance Contributions

:01:33.:01:33.

The Conservative MP has also recently attacked plans

:01:34.:01:38.

I think occasionally you have to stand up,

:01:39.:01:42.

So for me, I'm standing up for ordinary working

:01:43.:01:45.

families in my constituency and around the country.

:01:46.:01:47.

You know, I am happy to speak out, and if other

:01:48.:01:50.

members of Parliament are happy for me to do

:01:51.:01:52.

I don't speak on anybody else's half.

:01:53.:01:55.

Around 2000 car lovers were in Southend last night

:01:56.:02:00.

since an injunction was granted last year allowing police

:02:01.:02:06.

to prosecute anyone driving dangerously or anti-socially.

:02:07.:02:10.

Essex Police say no arrests were made.

:02:11.:02:15.

From a policing perspective, very happy.

:02:16.:02:17.

The purpose of the injunction was to prohibit vehicles

:02:18.:02:19.

driving in an anti-social manner. Largely, this has been achieved.

:02:20.:02:26.

And I commend the drivers that have been

:02:27.:02:28.

down here, worked with us, engaged with us.

:02:29.:02:33.

Preplanned and complying with the council legislation.

:02:34.:02:38.

is now being trained to sniff out cancer in Buckinghamshire.

:02:39.:02:44.

A dog, caged and waiting to be sold for slaughter in Asia,

:02:45.:02:47.

is now being trained to sniff out cancer in Buckinghamshire.

:02:48.:02:50.

The dog, called Faith, was saved from the South Korean meat trade.

:02:51.:02:53.

Now, she's working with the charity Medical Detection Dogs,

:02:54.:02:55.

They train dogs to identify cancers by smell.

:02:56.:02:58.

She was incredibly disruptive to start with.

:02:59.:03:00.

She had no idea what a home was, what a table was, she thought

:03:01.:03:03.

So frenetic about wanting food and water - these dogs

:03:04.:03:13.

But, you know, to start with she was a complete whirlwind.

:03:14.:03:17.

But with time, careful training and teaching her the boundaries,

:03:18.:03:19.

Well, it's been a mixed bag of sun, showers,

:03:20.:03:26.

For most of us today, it felt quite springlike

:03:27.:03:31.

We also saw a bit a bit of sunshine around as well.

:03:32.:03:35.

Overnight tonight, it is still going to be mild,

:03:36.:03:37.

temperatures not really dropping out of double figures.

:03:38.:03:39.

There will also be a few areas of light, patchy rain

:03:40.:03:42.

And that is still going to be around into tomorrow morning.

:03:43.:03:45.

So this weather front sat just towards the north-west of us.

:03:46.:03:48.

There will be some dry spells at times tomorrow,

:03:49.:03:50.

but an awful lot of low cloud, and still this rather blustery

:03:51.:03:53.

There will be further outbreaks of rain as we head

:03:54.:03:56.

As this rain band pushes its way south eastwards.

:03:57.:04:00.

Behind it, it is going to feel an awful lot colder.

:04:01.:04:03.

Afternoon temperatures 10 or 11 Celsius.

:04:04.:04:04.

So it is still mild tomorrow, but it will feel a bit colder

:04:05.:04:07.

Possibly a touch of patchy rural frost, particularly

:04:08.:04:11.

By the time we get to Tuesday, feeling colder, but also

:04:12.:04:15.

What do we expect from England cos that is all from the East, we are

:04:16.:04:31.

back at 6:25am this morning News and weather. From all of us here, sleep

:04:32.:04:33.

tight!

:04:34.:04:38.
