and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Welcome to BBC Points West with Alex Lovell and Sabet Choudhury.

:00:00.:00:00.

A multi-million pound Government contract promises

:00:00.:00:20.

money for maintenance, but it's not exactly

:00:21.:00:22.

And this almost feels like it's second-best.

:00:23.:00:27.

Having a maintenance contract is fine, but it's not what Yeovil

:00:28.:00:30.

What Yeovil has done for 100 years is been an aircraft manufacturer.

:00:31.:00:43.

Trains on a mainline out of Gloucester are stopped

:00:44.:00:48.

after a boulder hit the track, following a landslide.

:00:49.:00:51.

How this nine-year-old is changing the life

:00:52.:00:58.

We hear from striker Ellis Harrison on his four strike weekend.

:00:59.:01:10.

The government has announced details of a contract -

:01:11.:01:23.

worth more than ?250 million - for Leonardo

:01:24.:01:25.

The deal will see the company, previously known as Agusta Westland,

:01:26.:01:29.

providing service and training support for the UK military's

:01:30.:01:31.

But while the government says it will safeguard up to 500 jobs,

:01:32.:01:35.

a union says it's old news and in any case does little

:01:36.:01:37.

to safeguard the long term future of the Yeovil site.

:01:38.:01:40.

Our Somerset Correspondent, Clinton Rogers reports.

:01:41.:01:41.

The Minister in charge of buying things for the Armed Forces came

:01:42.:01:45.

to Yeovil keen to trumpet today's announcement as great news

:01:46.:01:48.

for the local economy, in particular the workforce here.

:01:49.:01:53.

It's a deal that will secure the cutting edge aircraft

:01:54.:02:00.

for the Royal Navy and the army, and I know it will support hundreds

:02:01.:02:03.

of skilled jobs right across the south-west.

:02:04.:02:05.

It's all about these helicopters, the Wildcat.

:02:06.:02:09.

62 of which were made in Yeovil, for service

:02:10.:02:11.

Now, the contract is valued at ?271 million, and it's

:02:12.:02:22.

essentially for the maintenance of the helicopters for

:02:23.:02:24.

But actually, what was announced today was just the latest stage

:02:25.:02:27.

of a 30 year contract that was signed back in 2012.

:02:28.:02:32.

Critics argue that it's really recycling old news,

:02:33.:02:35.

and that in any case, what this place really needs

:02:36.:02:38.

And yet, last year the Ministry of Defence decided not to let even

:02:39.:02:48.

Leonardo build the new Apache attack helicopter, preferring

:02:49.:02:50.

And this almost feels like it's second-best.

:02:51.:03:05.

All the aircraft in this production shed are here

:03:06.:03:07.

The company says it is talking to countries around the world.

:03:08.:03:14.

Not firm orders yet, but like any business such as ours,

:03:15.:03:19.

we know where the customer is, and we know what their

:03:20.:03:22.

And we're working very hard to land those orders this year.

:03:23.:03:25.

There remains a question mark over the equipment used to make

:03:26.:03:29.

the airframes for the Wildcat, and its suggestions that could be

:03:30.:03:33.

Even though the equipment is actually owned by

:03:34.:03:47.

The minister says no decision has not been made yet.

:03:48.:03:51.

Well, fears about the future of the plant were aired

:03:52.:03:53.

Paddy Ashdown, the former MP for Yeovil, told the House of Lords

:03:54.:03:57.

of his concerns that jobs might go overseas.

:03:58.:03:59.

Afterwards he went into our Westminster studios to tell me more.

:04:00.:04:05.

We are polite folk in Yeovil, we love it when a minister comes

:04:06.:04:08.

But I'm honestly not terribly certain why she did.

:04:09.:04:13.

I mean, these aren't new orders she was announcing.

:04:14.:04:19.

They are old orders secured by David Laws

:04:20.:04:21.

What she could be doing is insisting that the kit

:04:22.:04:26.

that the Ministry of Defence owns, that is not allowed to go

:04:27.:04:29.

to Poland with the jobs, unless there is a proper study that

:04:30.:04:34.

takes into account all the factors about whether

:04:35.:04:36.

My view is that if such a study were to take place,

:04:37.:04:50.

Yeovil would be shown to be just as competitive as Poland,

:04:51.:04:52.

and I can't understand why from the last six weeks pressing

:04:53.:04:55.

the minister, she refuses to do this.

:04:56.:04:57.

Do you think by the kit going off to Poland, that spells the end

:04:58.:05:00.

Of course it doesn't, but it means that 200 jobs

:05:01.:05:03.

which could be sustained in Yeovil, if Yeovil is indeed competitive

:05:04.:05:06.

and I think if you looked at the facts in detail,

:05:07.:05:09.

you'll see that they were, those 200 jobs would stay in Yeovil,

:05:10.:05:11.

stay on the Yeovil site and add to the viability of the Yeovil

:05:12.:05:15.

site in what are very difficult economic times.

:05:16.:05:17.

The government promises that it will do everything it can in this

:05:18.:05:19.

post Brexit era to keep jobs in Britain.

:05:20.:05:23.

Why will they not, then, do a proper study to ensure

:05:24.:05:25.

that the jobs can be kept on the Yeovil site and don't

:05:26.:05:28.

necessarily have to be shipped off to Poland?

:05:29.:05:41.

Surely having a maintenance contract is not a bad deal after all, is it?

:05:42.:05:47.

Having a maintenance contract is fine, but it's not what Yeovil's

:05:48.:05:51.

What Yeovil's done for 100 years is an aircraft manufacturer.

:05:52.:05:55.

By the way, some of the most world leading aircraft for the service

:05:56.:05:58.

That's not just assembly and not maintenance,

:05:59.:06:01.

it's the design, the technology, the engineering, all of those

:06:02.:06:03.

high-class design teams which Yeovil is now a centre of the aerospace

:06:04.:06:06.

industry will be damaged if Yeovil's allowed to dribble away

:06:07.:06:09.

and to become just a maintenance and assembly area.

:06:10.:06:12.

I'm determined that won't happen, and I'm sure that the people

:06:13.:06:16.

of Yeovil will believe that if the government isn't prepared

:06:17.:06:18.

to go the last mile to ensure the jobs which could be kept

:06:19.:06:21.

in Yeovil are kept in Yeovil, many people will regard that

:06:22.:06:24.

as a frankly, an insult to the technicians and skilled

:06:25.:06:29.

engineers who for 100 years in Yeovil have provided world

:06:30.:06:34.

beating aircraft for the armed services.

:06:35.:06:36.

You know, they deserve better than that.

:06:37.:06:37.

A body found in the search for a missing Bristol paramedic has

:06:38.:06:44.

been confirmed as that of missing jogger David Skeen.

:06:45.:06:52.

The 51-year-old was last seen on Tuesday after going for a run.

:06:53.:06:55.

He'd recently moved to Wales from the West.

:06:56.:06:57.

A man has been charged with attempted murder after a crash

:06:58.:07:00.

Lukasz Jarosz, 34, from Wilton, near Salisbury, was arrested

:07:01.:07:04.

A 13-year-old front seat passenger suffered a leg injury and remains

:07:05.:07:10.

It is understood that Mr Jarosz found his wife

:07:11.:07:25.

Three people have been taken to hospital after a lorry shed part

:07:26.:07:32.

of its load of stones on to a car during a crash in Gloucestershire.

:07:33.:07:35.

The lorry was carrying a load of Cotswold stone

:07:36.:07:37.

when it was involved in an an accident on

:07:38.:07:39.

A 56-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries

:07:40.:07:43.

and two other people have minor injuries.

:07:44.:07:44.

A large boulder which fell forty feet down a cliff onto a railway

:07:45.:07:48.

line in Gloucestershire is continuing to cause

:07:49.:07:49.

Engineers have spent the day breaking it up into smaller pieces -

:07:50.:07:53.

but Network Rail say the line may not reopen before the morning.

:07:54.:07:56.

A boulder, six feet by four, which came tumbling down a steep

:07:57.:08:08.

It was fortunate train on the other line spotted it first

:08:09.:08:12.

Engineers have been on the track all day, breaking

:08:13.:08:17.

It had clearly broken through metal netting and cables,

:08:18.:08:25.

drilled into the tight cutting to minimise the impact

:08:26.:08:27.

We have had some minor falls from time to time,

:08:28.:08:35.

which is why the netting is there, to help the cutting

:08:36.:08:38.

Well, it's not designed, built to cope with anything

:08:39.:08:42.

of the size that we saw falling onto the track today.

:08:43.:08:44.

Trains from Gloucester to Swindon have been able to pass

:08:45.:08:47.

through here at five miles per hour, but commuters wanting to get

:08:48.:08:50.

from Swindon to Gloucester have had to use a bus service.

:08:51.:08:52.

That may continue while Network Rail's investigations

:08:53.:08:54.

We need to check that all the signalling equipment

:08:55.:08:59.

and the track itself is safe to run trains over.

:09:00.:09:02.

It's pretty robust, but it had a serious knock today.

:09:03.:09:06.

We're also taking some investigations into what is still up

:09:07.:09:14.

there on the cutting wall, to see if there's

:09:15.:09:16.

likely to come down, and what we need to about that.

:09:17.:09:25.

The tight, rocky ravines here are a known problem

:09:26.:09:27.

It's close to this tunnel, which has undergone major

:09:28.:09:30.

repairs in recent years because of instability

:09:31.:09:32.

It could be that CCTV, or remote movement sensors could be

:09:33.:09:36.

installed here in future, which would raise the alarm

:09:37.:09:38.

You're watching Monday's Points West with Seb and Alex.

:09:39.:09:45.

Coming up a little later in the programme...

:09:46.:09:54.

We meet Bristol Rovers' cereal goal-scorer.

:09:55.:10:01.

Although it is fairly mild for the last couple of days, colder

:10:02.:10:05.

conditions developing by Thursday. The rest of your forecast for the

:10:06.:10:07.

end of the programme. We'll be asking him that vital

:10:08.:10:14.

questions. Sir Ranulph Fiennes is this evening

:10:15.:10:17.

battling the elements - about to start climbing the highest

:10:18.:10:19.

mountain in South America. The 72-year-old adventurer

:10:20.:10:22.

from Somerset, who has already climbed four of the world's toughest

:10:23.:10:25.

mountains, is tonight somewhere I think I said at right! At least

:10:26.:10:41.

that's the right amount we think! -- the right mountain.

:10:42.:10:43.

It's part of an ongoing world-record attempt to scale the highest

:10:44.:10:46.

peak on each continent - all to raise money for charity.

:10:47.:10:48.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes doing what he does best, and showing no

:10:49.:10:52.

This evening, he's somewhere on the side of the highest

:10:53.:10:55.

mountain in South America, about to start climbing.

:10:56.:10:57.

We've got to acclimatise, like you do on Everest.

:10:58.:10:59.

And so we're acclimatising for a day.

:11:00.:11:02.

The last sort of camp before the summit day

:11:03.:11:04.

is at about 20,000 feet, or 19,000 feet.

:11:05.:11:09.

The summit day will be the worst of all, and it includes a one mile

:11:10.:11:15.

highly exposed traverse, right across near the top,

:11:16.:11:17.

with a 2000 foot drop immediately below.

:11:18.:11:20.

So far, his exploits have cost him dear.

:11:21.:11:23.

Two heart attacks, a double heart bypass, a cancer operation and half

:11:24.:11:26.

of each of the fingers and thumb on his left hand.

:11:27.:11:31.

But as we know, Sir Ranulph is no quitter.

:11:32.:11:34.

He's trying to become the first person in the world to scale

:11:35.:11:38.

the highest peak on every one of the world's continents.

:11:39.:11:41.

He's already ticked off the ice caps and all of these -

:11:42.:11:47.

if he manages the Argentinian mountain - he'll

:11:48.:11:49.

Over the last 30 years, Sir Ranulph has raised a staggering

:11:50.:11:53.

This time he's fundraising for Marie Curie, a cause close

:11:54.:12:03.

to his heart after he lost his first wife to cancer.

:12:04.:12:06.

It's fantastic what Sir Ranulph Fiennes is doing for Marie Curie.

:12:07.:12:09.

It's an epic challenge, and appreciate the fact that he

:12:10.:12:11.

And it will not only raise funds for the charity,

:12:12.:12:17.

Sir Ranulph knows that it's going to be tough,

:12:18.:12:23.

but he's hoping that with a bit of luck, he'll manage it.

:12:24.:12:33.

We will keep tabs on him as best we can. I hope he does, good luck to

:12:34.:12:37.

him. He is an unstoppable machine. The opening of Bristol's flagship

:12:38.:12:41.

Metrobus scheme may only be nine months away but the City Council has

:12:42.:12:44.

admitted there's still no-one The ?200 million project

:12:45.:12:47.

promises to ease the gridlock in the city

but the roadworks have been Our reporter, Robin Markwell

:12:54.:12:56.

is on Winterstoke Road where some So Robin - with no bus operator,

:12:57.:12:59.

how concerned should we be? This is a huge year for Bristol's

:13:00.:13:14.

transport scene. The biggest, they reckon, since the M32 was opened in

:13:15.:13:19.

the 1970s. With this opening in the autumn of this year, there is still

:13:20.:13:24.

no bus operator chosen to run it. Equally, no fair schedule setup, so

:13:25.:13:31.

donor how much the tickets will be. -- fair schedule -- fare. This is

linking, will take bus passengers to Temple Meads. They reckon it will

:13:45.:13:52.

have -- half journey times. I have been finding out more.

:13:53.:13:55.

For commuters in Bristol, it's become the new dawn chorus.

:13:56.:13:57.

Roadworks upon roadworks, up on roadworks.

:13:58.:14:03.

A city dug up and relaid for the Metrobus scheme.

:14:04.:14:05.

For Paul Turner, his drive in to work has become

:14:06.:14:08.

If you look to your left, there is a vast Hull in the road.

:14:09.:14:16.

A journey that would usually take eight minutes through Bradley Stoke

:14:17.:14:24.

It's been 18 months of absolute Purgatory.

:14:25.:14:27.

We had a situation where the delays in the morning and the evening,

:14:28.:14:30.

coming into work and going home, have been astronomical.

:14:31.:14:35.

The roads are moving again in Bradley Stoke now,

:14:36.:14:37.

and things will improve further with this new link road close by.

:14:38.:14:44.

We very much want to apologise for particularly the fact that it

:14:45.:14:47.

But what we're delivering the end of the day is

:14:48.:14:53.

They've asked us for improved public transport.

:14:54.:14:56.

When it opened in the autumn, that public transport scheme

:14:57.:14:58.

will look a little like this similar project in Cambridge.

:14:59.:15:01.

Guided buses running on dedicated lanes, reliable

:15:02.:15:04.

The scale of the work is best seen from the air,

:15:05.:15:13.

one route heads West- East from Ashton Vale

:15:14.:15:15.

to Temple Meads, the other skirts up to Cribbs Causeway

:15:16.:15:17.

and Emerson's Green, spanning this bridge over the M32.

:15:18.:15:21.

But while the infrastructure is now falling into place,

:15:22.:15:23.

with nine months to go, there's still no word

:15:24.:15:25.

I can't give you a date, because I'm dependent

:15:26.:15:29.

on the negotiations, the conversations that we having

:15:30.:15:31.

with operators, which as I say, are commercially confidential

:15:32.:15:34.

So will all this be the answer to the city's crippling congestion?

:15:35.:15:39.

We will start to find out later this month,

:15:40.:15:47.

when the south Bristol link road opens to traffic.

:15:48.:15:50.

Then, motorists will get an idea if it's all been worth the wait.

:15:51.:15:54.

We find out next Monday that the South Bristol Link Road will open.

:15:55.:16:00.

Once that is open, another major piece of road work begins in South

:16:01.:16:06.

Bristol. We do have an end in sight, it is this autumn, but still plenty

:16:07.:16:09.

of disruption for Bristol's motorists before we get there.

:16:10.:16:11.

Absolutely. Thank you very much. An independent report has

:16:12.:16:15.

declared Bristol's year as European Green Capital

:16:16.:16:17.

'an undoubted success'. Hundreds of events took place

:16:18.:16:18.

in 2015, which saw a rise in the number of visitors

:16:19.:16:21.

to the city. But, following criticism

:16:22.:16:23.

from Liberal Democrats, Today it concluded the year had been

:16:24.:16:24.

well-run, with a positive legacy. We'll have plenty more on that in

A simple act of kindness that's brought joy to two young lives.

:18:55.:19:07.

Oscar, you are very thoughtful. A little star. Staying with stars...

:19:08.:19:13.

There's no doubt who produced the stand out sporting

:19:14.:19:15.

:19:16.:19:17.

goals in his side's big win against Northampton.

:19:18.:19:19.

Ali Durden is here - have they got another big

It was incredible, and so quick. They have another star on their

:19:27.:19:29.

hands. He's the first Rovers player

:19:30.:19:31.

to score four in a game He went on to play in the Premier

:19:32.:19:33.

League and for his country. He is undoubtedly a talent. Would

:19:34.:19:49.

you like to know more about him? Yes.

:19:50.:19:51.

He's still only 22, but has been with the club since he was 15

:19:52.:19:55.

and already played 143 games for them.

:19:56.:19:56.

A career highlight, scoring at Wembley as Rovers were promoted

:19:57.:19:59.

But this was his best performance - including a first-half hat-trick

:20:00.:20:02.
