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

:00:00.:00:00.

Warnings that people living in Bristol are more

:00:00.:00:08.

at risk of contracting HIV, because the right tests

:00:09.:00:10.

I think it is really important because it stops it then

:00:11.:00:16.

It is part of a decent human being about being tested, isn't it?

:00:17.:00:22.

Especially if you are starting a new relationship

:00:23.:00:23.

We'll be asking who should pay for HIV tests.

:00:24.:00:34.

The Wiltshire MP using a school group to highlight the best way

:00:35.:00:40.

of spending money raised by the new sugar tax.

:00:41.:00:42.

Meet Mimi, the 94-year-old gym bunny giving us a few tips on how to stay

:00:43.:00:46.

We'll bring you secrets of the trick shot that's an online sensation.

:00:47.:01:01.

There's a warning that people living in Bristol are at more risk

:01:02.:01:05.

of contracting HIV because not enough is being done

:01:06.:01:07.

Rates of infection in the city are on the increase and some

:01:08.:01:13.

organisations say anyone being admitted to hospital

:01:14.:01:16.

or registering with a GP should be offered a test.

:01:17.:01:19.

The City Council, in charge of public health,

:01:20.:01:22.

is now looking into it, as our Health Correspondent

:01:23.:01:24.

There is now a danger that has become a threat to us all.

:01:25.:01:29.

It's 30 years ago since the nation was shocked by this

:01:30.:01:32.

And its impact was immediate, with people changing

:01:33.:01:37.

If you ignore Aids, it could be the death of you.

:01:38.:01:44.

But in cities like Bristol, the message is now being forgotten.

:01:45.:01:47.

Latest figures show that out of every 1,000 people here,

:01:48.:01:51.

there are now more than two living with HIV.

:01:52.:01:57.

Two in every 1,000 is the limit where the Government's regulator

:01:58.:02:00.

Nice say we ought to be offering everyone admitted to hospital an HIV

:02:01.:02:05.

test, as well as everyone registering with their GP.

:02:06.:02:10.

But at the moment, this is simply not happening.

:02:11.:02:14.

And that could put people at risk of HIV infection.

:02:15.:02:17.

Becky was diagnosed with HIV four years ago.

:02:18.:02:21.

Her former partner Simon James is now serving a five-year prison

:02:22.:02:25.

sentence for deliberately infecting her and another woman.

:02:26.:02:28.

I got an e-mail from an ex-girlfriend of his about six

:02:29.:02:31.

months into the relationship, saying he was HIV positive but

:02:32.:02:33.

Had he been taking them, you would be fine now?

:02:34.:02:39.

Really sad, because it was unnecessary.

:02:40.:02:45.

I know that people's lives change, but there

:02:46.:02:51.

Becky is living a very healthy life because she is on medication.

:02:52.:03:02.

That's why its so crucial that patients with HIV are diagnosed.

:03:03.:03:05.

But in Bristol more than 40% of new cases are late diagnosis.

:03:06.:03:08.

Well, the City Council is about to run a pilot offering HIV

:03:09.:03:15.

tests to everyone joining six GP surgeries in Bristol, but they won't

:03:16.:03:19.

There genuinely needs to be a robust assessment of the cost and that's

:03:20.:03:27.

We are negotiating with the GPs around cost and with our NHS

:03:28.:03:33.

It's estimated every patient with a late diagnosis of HIV

:03:34.:03:39.

As the arguments continue over who should pay for testing,

:03:40.:03:46.

it's feared more and more patients are being infected.

:03:47.:03:50.

Matthew Hill, BBC Points West, Bristol.

:03:51.:03:53.

We're joined now from our Edinburgh studios by

:03:54.:03:56.

Professor Claudia Estcourt from the British Association

:03:57.:03:57.

Firstly who exactly is responsible for funding theses test?

:03:58.:04:04.

This is a complex area but in the last reorganisation of the NHS it

:04:05.:04:19.

was made clear that HIV prevention sits with local authorities in

:04:20.:04:23.

England and care for people who are HIV positive sits within the NHS so

:04:24.:04:28.

testing is in a no man's land in the middle and you can see when

:04:29.:04:32.

resources are in short supply it can be difficult to persuade one

:04:33.:04:34.

organisation or another that they organisation or another that they

:04:35.:04:38.

are responsible for funding. When you have this no man's land,

:04:39.:04:43.

problems like this are arise. Yes, this lack of clarity is causing the

:04:44.:04:47.

problem. Should people be better educated now? I think in the context

:04:48.:04:54.

of what you have heard in the interviews, there has never been a

:04:55.:04:56.

more optimistic time for the health of April with HIV -- people with

:04:57.:05:04.

HIV. If we diagnose people are late, they can have a great quality of

:05:05.:05:08.

life and are pretty much a normal life expectancy and they are

:05:09.:05:12.

unlikely to pass on the infection. We need to prioritise testing in

:05:13.:05:18.

ways that are underpinned by robust evidence such as the two parent 1000

:05:19.:05:24.

evidence upon which national guidelines are made. Regardless of

:05:25.:05:29.

where it is in the UK, the issue is looking at the level of infection in

:05:30.:05:31.

the local pollution and following the local pollution and following

:05:32.:05:37.

those guidelines. It seems -- population. It seems it is almost

:05:38.:05:45.

going backwards. Do you think there is a level of ignorance about HIV

:05:46.:05:50.

now? I think it has fallen off the agenda of people and that may be a

:05:51.:05:55.

success story because people are so well with HIV but in other respects

:05:56.:05:58.

people are forgetting about testing and that is incredibly sad. The

:05:59.:06:06.

outcomes are so good and people can expect a fantastic quality of life.

:06:07.:06:14.

The Terrance Higgins Trust has done some research and found that many

:06:15.:06:19.

children are not taught about HIV. It is a terrible shame in terms of

:06:20.:06:26.

the school curriculum and in terms of health and relationships and

:06:27.:06:28.

equipping young people for the choices they make in later life.

:06:29.:06:32.

Ensuring people are informed with the facts, they know where to access

:06:33.:06:37.

testing and they know the outcomes are really very good, this will help

:06:38.:06:44.

to the stigma to is -- help to take away the stigma. If people are

:06:45.:06:52.

tested early they can see health benefits. And the cost of care in

:06:53.:06:57.

the future will be dramatically less than if they are tested very late.

:06:58.:07:05.

It doesn't take very many people to be diagnosed for the testing to be

:07:06.:07:06.

cost effective. There was a dramatic twist

:07:07.:07:08.

today at the inquest into the death of 23-year-old

:07:09.:07:10.

Josh Clayton from Taunton. The court heard the bar manager had

:07:11.:07:14.

been in an argument with a group of Polish workers at a party

:07:15.:07:17.

the night he went missing His body was discovered

:07:18.:07:20.

eight days later. The jury was sent home early today

:07:21.:07:25.

in order for the legal teams A retired accountant

:07:26.:07:28.

from Cheltenham, who retrained as a Swedish masseur,

:07:29.:07:33.

has been jailed for 15 months for sexually assaulting six

:07:34.:07:36.

of his female clients. Malcom Baker was told he had

:07:37.:07:39.

completely abused the trust of people who had gone to him

:07:40.:07:41.

for a massage by touching intimate Here's Gloucestershire

:07:42.:07:44.

Reporter Steve Knibbs. He got me to lie on my back

:07:45.:07:53.

and he proceeded to massage my inner thighs, and his hands

:07:54.:07:57.

were going quite high up my inner thigh, to the point

:07:58.:07:59.

where his fingertips were touching my pubic

:08:00.:08:01.

bone at points. The oil from his hands actually

:08:02.:08:03.

went on my underwear, so that was obviously evidence that

:08:04.:08:05.

I gave to the police. And again I thought, "Is he really

:08:06.:08:08.

doing this, or is he not?" It was very subtle at points,

:08:09.:08:11.

very clever and crafty, if you like. Baker, who is married,

:08:12.:08:16.

trained in massage after he retired and set up a treatment room

:08:17.:08:18.

at home in Cheltenham. Shortly afterwards, he taught

:08:19.:08:21.

himself full body massage from the Internet and,

:08:22.:08:23.

over a period of months, took advantage of being alone

:08:24.:08:26.

with some of his female clients. When he was doing my stomach,

:08:27.:08:30.

he was sweating profusely. He had to keep taking

:08:31.:08:33.

the towel to mop his brow, Malcolm Baker has completely

:08:34.:08:39.

disregarded his teachings and abused Baker had trained professionally

placement at all times. I was afraid to be assertive

:09:06.:09:08.

because I knew the door was locked and I wondered what he might do

:09:09.:09:12.

if he picked up on the fact that I know what he was doing was wrong,

:09:13.:09:16.

so I went into survival instinct, It was Becky who first

:09:17.:09:20.

went to the police. When officers then contacted

Baker's female clients, He was found guilty at trial

judgment, or they felt like they were embarrassed,

:09:30.:09:34.

they felt like they might be judged But obviously we want people

:09:35.:09:38.

to understand that we will take this seriously and we will be sensitive

to the victims and we On his website, Malcolm Baker said

:09:46.:09:48.

that he would treat his clients The judge told him today that

:09:49.:09:51.

what he did was a considerable breach of trust for his

:09:52.:09:58.

own sexual gratification. Malcom Baker was convicted

:09:59.:10:01.

at the end of a trial. He denied all the offences,

:10:02.:10:03.

saying that if he had touched his clients sexually,

:10:04.:10:06.

then it was by accident. But he was jailed today for 15

:10:07.:10:09.

months and ordered to pay each Steve Knibbs, BBC Points West

:10:50.:10:53.

consecrated forecast at the end of the programme. Trickier than that

:10:54.:10:58.

trick shot! A Wiltshire school club has been

:10:59.:11:02.

used to try to convince Parliament of the best way

:11:03.:11:04.

to get children active. North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson

:11:05.:11:06.

has tabled a debate on how to spend He thinks the approach used by one

Swindon after-school sports camp Here's our Wiltshire

:11:10.:11:13.

reporter Will Glennon. The skies may be grey,

:11:14.:11:24.

it may be cold and wet, but these children in Swindon

:11:25.:11:27.

are getting active and having fun. They're at a Draycott Sports Camp

:11:28.:11:29.

at Oakhurst Primary School. It's an after-hours club and helps

:11:30.:11:32.

to target the children who aren't I enjoy it because we get to go out

:11:33.:11:35.

and get fit and enjoy some new sports I would have never

:11:36.:11:45.

heard of before. Children, particularly

:11:46.:11:47.

at primary level even, are going home and they can't wait

:11:48.:11:49.

to get on their iPads Although I do believe there should

:11:50.:11:52.

be a balance, you know, I love the thought of children

:11:53.:11:55.

choosing to play sport and choosing to be active,

:11:56.:11:58.

running around, making friends, and I think we've tried to really

:11:59.:12:00.

encourage that fun and enjoyment Figures from the Department

:12:01.:12:03.

of Health say three out of five children aren't taking part

:12:04.:12:09.

in any activity clubs. That's what the government

:12:10.:12:11.

wants to address. It's hoping to use money

:12:12.:12:13.

from the new sugar tax, which will be introduced next year,

:12:14.:12:15.

to help fund more clubs. I love the idea of 100 sports camps

:12:16.:12:22.

going on round the country, and as many sporting

:12:23.:12:25.

clubs as possible. You know, we do ten,

:12:26.:12:29.

11, 12 clubs a week. I think it is a great

:12:30.:12:32.

way to spend the money. Today MPs have been discussing how

:12:33.:12:38.

best to use that money. This club is being held up

:12:39.:12:41.

as an example where it is working. And they want many

:12:42.:12:46.

more just like it. Will Glennon, BBC

:12:47.:12:48.

Points West, Swindon. Well, I'm joined now

:12:49.:12:54.

from Westminster by the MP It was a great debate. It secured

:12:55.:13:12.

cross-party support. I was looking to build on the inspirational work

:13:13.:13:16.

that the Draycott sports camp has done. 200 children over the holidays

:13:17.:13:24.

and slightly more girls than boys. This is so important. One in three

:13:25.:13:29.

primary schoolchildren will leave their skill either obese or

:13:30.:13:33.

overweight. It is a real problem that in adult life costs the NHS ?6

:13:34.:13:39.

billion per year. I want to see Draycott sports camps in all

:13:40.:13:45.

schools, all communities, so young people have the opportunity to be

:13:46.:13:51.

active in evenings and weekends, and I also pushed for free use of school

:13:52.:13:55.

facilities for any voluntary groups who want to put on sports

:13:56.:13:58.

activities. When George Osbourne introduced

:13:59.:14:00.

the sugar tax he said the money will be spent on increasing

:14:01.:14:03.

the funding for sport in primary It is looking at the details. I am

:14:04.:14:19.

broadly neutral on the principle of the sugar tax but if we are going to

:14:20.:14:25.

do that and it raises ?520 million then let's spend it the right way.

:14:26.:14:26.

The important bit is to have regular The important bit is to have regular

:14:27.:14:32.

and sustainable activities. In Draycott sports camps, the kids love

:14:33.:14:35.

it and they are active and it is regular and it will keep going into

:14:36.:14:40.

the future and we just need to encourage more PE teachers to step

:14:41.:14:43.

forward and set up their own and we can create more opportunities to

:14:44.:14:46.

build on the Olympic legacy. They say, "Build it and they will

:14:47.:14:51.

come," but will they? You are competing with interesting

:14:52.:15:00.

games children are playing at home so how do you compete with that? As

:15:01.:15:08.

you saw in the video, it is making it for children. Yes we are kind of

:15:09.:15:14.

eating -- competing with computer games and parents are more safety

:15:15.:15:18.

conscious but it is making it enjoyable, and the strength of the

:15:19.:15:23.

Draycott sports camps is making everyone included and people

:15:24.:15:37.

enjoying it. And I'd like to allow local community people and parents

:15:38.:15:41.

to use school facilities for free. I remember of seeing school facilities

:15:42.:15:46.

locked away. Let's get these things in use because the taxpayer has

:15:47.:15:48.

already paid for them. Now, after the indulgence

:15:49.:15:54.

of the festive period, you may want to take a leaf out

:15:55.:15:56.

of Mimi's book. Mimi Vallas recently decided

:15:57.:15:59.

it was time to lose a bit of weight She goes twice a week and is already

:16:00.:16:02.

dropping the pounds. Well, at 94, she's the oldest

:16:03.:16:06.

gym bunny in town. Mimi Vallas is the very

:16:07.:16:10.

definition of a gym bunny. This 94-year-old is

:16:11.:16:24.

on a flab-fighting mission. Amazing, isn't it?

:16:25.:16:30.

Don't ask me how long I've Mimi pushes through the pain

:16:31.:16:37.

threshold with laughter, Mimi was born into a family of 11

:16:38.:16:45.

children in South Wales in a house Plenty of water here though,

:16:46.:16:52.

although Mimi does like to balance her health drive

:16:53.:16:58.

with her other favourite drink. I've asked her to put

:16:59.:17:02.

a gin and tonic in there She makes me smile, she makes

:17:03.:17:05.

everybody smile around her. She has an absolute huge zest

:17:06.:17:09.

for life and, at the age of 94, For Mimi, one of the best bits of

:17:10.:17:15.

coming here is making new friends. Mimi's 95 in February and,

with her mix of gym and gin, Andrea Ormsby, BBC

:17:27.:17:41.

Points West, Dulverton. A mum from Bath has written

:17:42.:17:54.

a new book to try and help dispel some of the myths surrounding

:17:55.:17:58.

Down's syndrome. She was told he had Down's 24

:17:59.:17:59.

hours after he was born. Caroline has campaigned a lot to try

:18:00.:18:08.

and change perception, Seb has starred in adverts,

:18:09.:18:10.

and now she's written a book, full of anecdotes of how

:18:11.:18:15.

he's enriched her life. Well, Caroline and Seb are with us

:18:16.:18:19.

now to share some of them. It is great to see you here and it

:18:20.:18:36.

was lovely to read the book. You are very taken with seeing yourself on

:18:37.:18:42.

television! Yes. This book is called The Label. We were given his

:18:43.:18:50.

diagnosis after his birth and with the delivery of those two words,

:18:51.:18:58.

everything changed. I felt unnecessarily devastated with the

:18:59.:19:00.

diagnosis and I started to map out what the future held for us and I

:19:01.:19:07.

made a lot of assumptions. Is it is, assumptions? It was a mixture of

:19:08.:19:14.

outdated stereotypes I had in my mind, because I knew nothing about

:19:15.:19:18.

Down's syndrome, and I bought a lot of bikes which just listed problems,

:19:19.:19:27.

and I felt what was missing was the colour of reality. So, bit by bit,

:19:28.:19:33.

the hurt listed, I fell in love with my boy, he is adorable, and I

:19:34.:19:38.

realised that actually he was still my son and he wasn't Down's

:19:39.:19:46.

syndrome. Really, the book is about writing your own story and not sort

:19:47.:19:50.

of pigeonholing your child. What is day-to-day life like? Really

:19:51.:19:59.

typical. I have two other children. He is football mad. Who do you

:20:00.:20:08.

support? Chelsea. He is actually very good at football. His dad is a

:20:09.:20:12.

big Chelsea fan as well. He has a wicked sense of humour. He is very

:20:13.:20:21.

sporty. He is advertising! What's that? Its money. -- Mummy. You have

:20:22.:20:38.

been on the TV before, haven't you? Were have we seen you? You have seen

:20:39.:20:50.

me... In adverts? Did you notice that perceptions of friends

:20:51.:20:54.

changing? What I find is that actually Seb changes perceptions

:20:55.:21:02.

every day. We grew up in a time where people with Down's syndrome

:21:03.:21:07.

went to their own skill and we never got the chance to see beyond that

:21:08.:21:11.

label. What would you like people to take away from the book? It is a

:21:12.:21:17.

very generic book and doesn't actually reference Down's syndrome

:21:18.:21:25.

but I want people to not be bound by text books and leaflets but to

:21:26.:21:31.

experience their own journey. Seb is every bit as different to someone

:21:32.:21:37.

else's child as my other children are. Don't be defined. Seb, you have

:21:38.:21:55.

proved that not all Sebs aren't talentless! -- are talentless.

:23:01.:23:02.

and didn't get it right until long after dawn.

:23:03.:23:06.

Honestly, I thought an hour tops, knock the ball down the stairs

:23:07.:23:10.

a couple of times, I'll get home to bed and be back in work tomorrow.

:23:11.:23:13.

But, no, it turned out to be a whole-night stint.

:23:14.:23:16.

We'd said eight o'clock was our cut-off point completely,

:23:17.:23:20.

Shane O'Hara was the creator of the trick.

:23:21.:23:29.

He's pretty handy with a pool cue, and recalls this latest trick

:23:30.:23:32.

We didn't really speak to each other, myself and Tom,

:23:33.:23:36.

for the last two hours, we were so frustrated.

:23:37.:23:39.

We didn't want to talk to each other.

:23:40.:23:41.

It's brought a lot of fun and made a lot of people smile but,

:23:42.:23:44.

believe me, behind the scenes, there was no smiling.

:23:45.:23:46.

It was just a really frustrating experience,

:23:47.:23:48.

and we regretted ever starting the whole thing.

:23:49.:23:50.

But the two minutes make it worthwhile.

:23:51.:23:53.

The trick's had a million hits around the world already,

:23:54.:23:55.

including a retweet from Bristol golfer Chris Wood.

:23:56.:23:59.

And Shane's promising there's more to come.

:24:00.:24:02.

I would like to do a 1,000-foot version of it, which is definitely

:24:03.:24:06.

And, yeah, you'll have to watch this space.

:24:07.:24:10.

Just have to take some hypnosis to become a little bit

:24:11.:24:19.

more patient and do it, I think.

:24:20.:24:20.

Doing a trick twice as long as this will be the ultimate test.

:24:21.:24:23.

But judging by the popularity of this trick, the world will,

:24:24.:24:26.

Scott Ellis, BBC Points West, Bristol.

:24:27.:24:37.

Now, they join me now. How many hits do you think you have had? You think

:24:38.:24:49.

you have a trick for me. What do I have to do? You have to put the

:24:50.:24:57.

eight ball into the corner pocket. A K, let's see what we can do. Did it,

:24:58.:25:12.

well done. The pressure alone would have made

:25:13.:25:13.

me feel at that!

:25:14.:25:17.

Let's put some more pressure on. Ian has the forecast.

:25:18.:25:23.

I will fast forward to Thursday. We expect a very cold day. Watch this

:25:24.:25:31.

sequence and how rain spreads from the West, south-west during daylight

:25:32.:25:37.

hours. And look at the potential, only potential, for some of that to

:25:38.:25:41.

become snow, particularly across northern parts of our area. There is

:25:42.:25:47.

a Met Office warning, a low risk of snow versus a high risk of rain.

:25:48.:25:55.

This evening into tonight, comparatively mild. Turning windy

:25:56.:25:57.

tomorrow from the north-west. A mild tomorrow from the north-west. A mild

:25:58.:26:01.

day but temperatures slipping away towards the tail end. It looks

:26:02.:26:08.

mostly dry. Here is how things are shaping up, some patchy rain about

:26:09.:26:13.

later tonight, clearing to the south east early tomorrow. Look how the

:26:14.:26:19.

isobars are tightening and moving to the west as the wind starts to come

:26:20.:26:25.

in. The colder air which has origins in the Canadian Arctic. For the rest

:26:26.:26:31.

of this evening and tonight, many areas dry, the second half of the

:26:32.:26:34.

night could have some patchy rain and cloud. Temperatures will stay

:26:35.:26:41.

where they are, around five Celsius. There might be some patchy light

:26:42.:26:46.

rain around the South tomorrow morning. Some brighter spells and we

:26:47.:26:52.

will continue in that vein through the day as the wind continues to be

:26:53.:26:57.

more noticeable. Getting colder but before that getting up to 9-10.

:26:58.:27:03.

There is the outlook, all sorts of shenanigans for Thursday.

:27:04.:27:05.

In summary, shenanigans! That trick shot is on

:27:06.:27:15.
