There was a report of an altercation between a security guard and a

:00:00.:00:24.

member of the public. It was that we know that the young man involved has

:00:25.:00:28.

died as a result of that. How a discredited doctor

:00:29.:00:41.

from Bath is now getting How Bristol Rugby's Tom Varndell

:00:42.:00:45.

could make Premiership history. And rare footage of a West

:00:46.:01:01.

heritage is now being turned A security guard has been questioned

:01:02.:01:03.

on suspicion of manslaughter after a man died outside a shopping

:01:04.:01:07.

centre in Trowbridge. It's thought the man

:01:08.:01:09.

could have been shoplifting, and may have been injured

:01:10.:01:12.

as he was challenged. Our reporter Scott Ellis

:01:13.:01:15.

is there for us this evening. What more can you tell us? It was

:01:16.:01:26.

yesterday afternoon and a man in his 30s was spotted. They think he was

:01:27.:01:33.

shoplifting in the centre of Trowbridge. He is in his 30s and

:01:34.:01:39.

ears from Cornwall. Here's a rough sleeper and he is known to police

:01:40.:01:44.

and store detectives. He was seen coming out of Sainsbury's with

:01:45.:01:47.

bottles of alcohol stashed underneath his jacket next to his

:01:48.:01:50.

stomach stop he is followed by a store detective from Sainsbury's.

Sainsbury's. This is the science shopping centre just in front of

:02:01.:02:05.

Asda in a centre of Trowbridge. There is an altercation between the

:02:06.:02:08.

two of them. The man with the bottles. The ground, the bottles

:02:09.:02:13.

smashed and he gets a very serious stomach injury. The paramedics are

:02:14.:02:18.

called, two ambulances, air ambulances landed the local park.

:02:19.:02:22.

They try to save his life, but he died in the car park just three

:02:23.:02:25.

o'clock this afternoon. It is an eyewitness account.

:02:26.:02:26.

First of all, he just tried to block him and then

:02:27.:02:29.

very adamant that he was getting away with this drink and then,

:02:30.:02:33.

I don't think it was like a thing that he meant to do,

:02:34.:02:37.

And as he tried to grab him, the other guy sort of tried to

:02:38.:02:42.

pull away and he sort of tripped and fallen on top of it.

:02:43.:02:45.

And then there was like loads of people around so I

:02:46.:02:48.

didn't see a lot of what was going on.

:02:49.:02:52.

The man was taken into questioning. The store detective, on suspicion of

:02:53.:02:59.

manslaughter, now released on unconditional bail. The detective

:03:00.:03:02.

told some of the things he was having to weigh up as he

:03:03.:03:03.

investigated this case. There's been various episodes

the schools had just come out. If anyone has permitted, contact the

police. Well, earlier I spoke to James Kelly

:03:42.:03:41.

from the British Security Industry Association and asked him

:03:42.:03:46.

whether he'd heard of such Sadly, such tragedies do happen,

the same requirements. They must use reasonable

force and that reasonable It really revolves around

:04:49.:04:51.

what they honestly and instinctively believe is the threat

:04:52.:05:06.

that they face at that time. But they don't have powers

like the police unless they are operating under some specific

police authorised scheme. I don't know what the

:05:12.:05:13.

circumstances of this It seems like there are

:05:14.:05:15.

lots of different levels and lots of different

:05:16.:05:18.

rules, as well. I think for the regulated sector,

:05:19.:05:20.

it is clear enough. Whether they are a certain

:05:21.:05:28.

security guard or a door supervisor, then their

:05:29.:05:30.

training requirements are different. The concern might be

:05:31.:05:35.

where you have in-house security personnel who

:05:36.:05:37.

are not necessarily subject to the same

:05:38.:05:38.

training requirements might not be vetted as well as the

contract it sector. Do you think that is something

:05:43.:05:46.

that needs addressing? Is something we have called

:05:47.:05:50.

for addressing for a very long time. In a shopping mall, you might have

:05:51.:05:54.

security guards that are regulated on one side of the shopping aisle

:05:55.:05:57.

and on the other side, you might well have in-house guards that

are not necessarily subject to any Unless that particular

for joining us, Mr Kelly. Experts in child health say they're

:06:15.:06:22.

concerned that a former doctor from Bath is being given

:06:23.:06:25.

an international platform for his An MEP invited Andrew Wakefield

:06:26.:06:27.

to Brussels to show Mr Wakefield also says

:06:28.:06:34.

he's met Donald Trump Our Health Correspondent

:06:35.:06:37.

Matthew Hill reports. The BBC is what is

:06:38.:06:46.

known as fake news. It was the fake findings

:06:47.:06:51.

of Andrew Wakefield's paper to decades ago linking MMR

:06:52.:06:53.

vaccinations and autism that caused One of the signs of that is that

:06:54.:06:56.

for a whole generation we had no cases of measles

:06:57.:07:00.

here at the children's hospital. But two years ago a child went

:07:01.:07:07.

into A who was infected. They simpy passed another child

:07:08.:07:10.

who had had an operation and that child was also

:07:11.:07:13.

infected with measels. Yesterday, he was in Brussels

:07:14.:07:15.

to show his new film to some MEPS. An invitation by this Green MEP

dcause such an outcry they had to move the venue outside

the European Parliament. Requiring children to be vaccinated

:07:28.:07:30.

has passed with support. My oldest son, Ian,

:07:31.:07:35.

was walking and running. After the vaccine, he was no

:07:36.:07:37.

longer able to do that. The CBC had known all along

:07:38.:07:40.

there was this MMR autism risk. And his message is now

:07:41.:07:53.

reaching President Trump, who's just appointed someone

:07:54.:07:55.

who agrees with Mr Wakefield to chair an investigation

:07:56.:07:57.

into vaccine safety. I've met with many politicians

:07:58.:07:59.

over the last 22 years. Most of them look at their watch,

:08:00.:08:06.

they look at their phone. They are not interested

:08:07.:08:08.

in what your talking about. Donald Trump gave us 50 minutes

:08:09.:08:15.

to discuss a very serious issue. He understands it coming he gets it,

he intends to do something This leading vaccine

expert is horrified. It is alarming if it is true

:08:22.:08:24.

that people like Andrew Wakefield, who have been

:08:25.:08:26.

comprehensively discredited professionally, are getting the ear

:08:27.:08:28.

of people who are clearly very In the end, when it comes

:08:29.:08:30.

to public health decisions, you have to look objectively

:08:31.:08:37.

at what everybody has put together. The danger is that we have

:08:38.:08:40.

a return of this problem with people not immunising their

:08:41.:08:46.

children with the vaccine and we see more cases of measles,

:08:47.:08:49.

more cases of mumps, rubella, and people die

:08:50.:08:51.

as a consequence of it. Since Andrew Wakefield

was discredited, The big fear now is

1750s Cornwall. By Amanda I am under strict instruction to meet Poldark.

:09:38.:09:40.

You must be in there somewhere. Hello!

:09:41.:09:46.

It's been confirmed that a body found in Bristol harbour on Sunday

:09:47.:09:49.

The 24-year-old, who was from Worle in North Somerset, was last seen

:09:50.:09:54.

leaving the nearby Motion nightclub in the early hours of

:09:55.:09:57.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

:09:58.:10:06.

The fiancee of a Gloucestershire man who was knocked down is appealing

:10:07.:10:09.

An inquest was suspended after it heard Chris Smith may have argued

:10:10.:10:13.

with an unknown man in the minutes before he died.

:10:14.:10:16.

A great brother, a great son, a great uncle.

:10:17.:10:27.

Chris Smith was 41, a doting father of two young

:10:28.:10:33.

In the early hours of the 28th of June last year, he was struck

:10:34.:10:40.

by a white van outside the village of Staunton and died

:10:41.:10:44.

His fiancee Tina Spiers is desperate for the truth.

:10:45.:10:51.

She admits said they'd had a row the previous evening

:10:52.:11:00.

But his movements afterwards are largely unknown.

:11:01.:11:03.

The inquest into Chris' was suspended in December.

:11:04.:11:04.

A witness had given evidence to suggest he may

:11:05.:11:07.

have been seen arguing with someone before he died.

:11:08.:11:11.

Proceedings were halted for the police to conduct

:11:12.:11:13.

We are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

:11:14.:11:18.

We just would like to know how things

:11:19.:11:24.

happened and how we he ended up where he was because

:11:25.:11:26.

it was the completely opposite direction to home.

:11:27.:11:31.

Are you prepared to accept that this was a tragic accident?

:11:32.:11:34.

Because it is so out of character for Chris.

:11:35.:11:39.

Like I said, there was nothing up where he was

:11:40.:11:42.

And it was completely the opposite way to home.

:11:43.:11:47.

There are unanswered questions such as what was the father

:11:48.:11:50.

Why was he in near the middle of the road when struck by the vehicle?

:11:51.:11:56.

Questions the family hope the coroner will address.

:11:57.:11:58.

Any help would be fantastic because we've

:11:59.:12:01.

been left at a bit of a standstill for a while now.

:12:02.:12:05.

Gloucestershire Police have declined an interview but told the BBC that

:12:06.:12:12.

one or two of their inquiries are outstanding, but there is no

Ben Godfrey, Bbc Midlands Today, Staunton in Gloucestershire.

:12:17.:12:26.

Rugby fans could see history made this evening.

:12:27.:12:28.

Bristol's Tom Varndell needs to score just one more try to break

:12:29.:12:34.

Alistair Durden is at Ashton Gate, where Bristol are playing

:12:35.:12:37.

Ali, it's an important night for the team too.

:12:38.:12:48.

Absolutely right. A draw or a win and Bristol are off the bottom of

:12:49.:12:54.

the premiership table and they have changed all 15 players from last

:12:55.:12:58.

week 's Anglo Welsh cup tie for this to. All the big names will be back

:12:59.:13:03.

and they will be well rested as well. That includes Tom Varndell,

:13:04.:13:08.

well known as one of the quickest players in rugby union. We would not

:13:09.:13:12.

look out of place in the Olympics 100 metres, I can tell you. He is

:13:13.:13:16.

one of the best finishes and tonight he has the chance to put himself in

:13:17.:13:20.

the record books as the premiership's all-time top tries

:13:21.:13:21.

Gora. -- scorer. Obviously, scoring tries

:13:22.:13:34.

is what I love to do. The guy on the wing at the end

:13:35.:13:47.

of the most of the moves. The clubs I've been at,

:13:48.:13:52.

I have always enjoyed scoring tries and it hasn't

:13:53.:13:57.

changed since I was young. Any player wants to leave

:13:58.:13:59.

their mark on the game. If I can do that

:14:00.:14:01.

with my try scoring, Varndell's talent for

:14:02.:14:04.

the try line was evident In only his second match he scored

:14:05.:14:07.

a hatrick the fastest And a year later he scored

:14:08.:14:11.

on his England debut. Fastforward 11 years and his try

:14:12.:14:19.

against sale last month took him He is obviously a bit of a freak.

:14:20.:14:35.

Give ball out wide and see him like a racehorse live. It is impressive

:14:36.:14:44.

to see. He's got a lot of pace and there is no substitute for that. I

:14:45.:14:49.

think Jason has helped a lot. He is creating space not just by himself

:14:50.:14:52.

and for Tom and Tom is feeding off that.

:14:53.:14:53.

His recent form has seen him rewarded with a new contract

:14:54.:14:55.

At just 30, he has the chance to add plenty more scores to that record.

:14:56.:14:59.

As you can see on the pitch, the last couple of months

:15:00.:15:03.

I love the city, it is a great city with a great fan base.

:15:04.:15:11.

The last sort of month has been really good for us.

:15:12.:15:15.

If we can do that, we should have a good year.

:15:16.:15:26.

I have got Tom's team-mate Jordan Crane here. You know him pretty

:15:27.:15:34.

well. How big an achievement is this going to be when, not if, he manages

:15:35.:15:39.

to break the record. As you say, it is going to be a formality. As long

:15:40.:15:43.

as he does it. Hopefully it is delighted that can help us get off

:15:44.:15:48.

the bottom of the table. I've known him since we were 16. He is always

:15:49.:15:52.

being the guy who when you give him the ball in space he's going to

:15:53.:15:55.

score a try. Is as quick as quick as it was then? That is one of the

:15:56.:16:00.

things that is incredible about him. At his age, he is not lost any pace.

:16:01.:16:05.

I remember at school when he ran the 100 metres in ten seconds in bare

:16:06.:16:11.

feet, so it is just incredible. What an athlete. Some finisher. This came

:16:12.:16:23.

to light, Bristol has a chance to get off the bottom of the table.

:16:24.:16:26.

Good psychologically. A difficult start to the season. We fought for

:16:27.:16:31.

every single game. The point is that we picked up before we got our first

:16:32.:16:36.

wins were massive. This next five games are going to determine where

:16:37.:16:40.

we end up. We can pick up some points. While the big boys are away

:16:41.:16:47.

at the six Nations. We are a chance and we can get some points to put

:16:48.:16:51.

pressure on Worcester. You made your comeback injury last week. By pride

:16:52.:16:59.

from their returning suite against Leicester? That would be nice. The

:17:00.:17:06.

turnaround was a bit too much from you. The bones were hurting this

:17:07.:17:14.

week. Hopefully I will get in and play some part against Leicester. I

:17:15.:17:17.

hope Bristol get the win. It's also a landmark night

:17:18.:17:20.

for Bath's Semesa Rokodoguni. He makes his 100th appearance

:17:21.:17:22.

for the club in their home game Tomorrow, Gloucester

:17:23.:17:25.

are away at Leicester, that sees the Burns brothers

:17:26.:17:31.

face each other. Billy for Gloucester,

:17:32.:17:33.

Freddie with the Tigers. And in football,

:17:34.:17:37.

these are the games. Swindon have goalkeeper

:17:38.:17:40.

Lawrence Vigoroux available for their game at Bury after his red

:17:41.:17:43.

card against Oxford was overturned. The rugby tonight starts at 7:45,

:17:44.:17:54.

we'll have the results at 22:00 and be able to tell

:17:55.:17:56.

you if Tom Varndell has Rare footage of an aircraft

:17:57.:17:59.

which is part of the West's heritage The Wayfarer was known

:18:00.:18:06.

as the lorry of the skies, and was the first commercial

:18:07.:18:11.

aircraft produced after Well it's now being turned

:18:12.:18:12.

into a documentary and one of the producers, Andrew Warren,

:18:13.:18:18.

joins us in the studio. Thank you for coming in. And sharing

:18:19.:18:27.

this but it is. It is gorgeous. In a loft. How did you come across this?

:18:28.:18:32.

Ladies that I've got this film. My husband used to work at the Bristol

:18:33.:18:36.

aeroplane company. Common have a look. She said that the work of the

:18:37.:18:41.

aircraft? She said I got no idea. We used to just bring a wage packet

:18:42.:18:45.

home. Let's talk about the wayfarer. Not the most glamorous to scripting,

:18:46.:18:53.

the lorry of the skies. It was designed up the road at the lorry

:18:54.:18:56.

housed in Clifton. What they have to do was today called the design staff

:18:57.:19:01.

because it was getting bombed. We certainly didn't want to lose your

:19:02.:19:06.

design staff. It was designed there, very rudimentary, but it was a real

:19:07.:19:12.

workhorse. A five tonne lorry of the airwaves, really. It is absolutely

:19:13.:19:17.

massive. You can get an idea of the scale there if you look at those

:19:18.:19:22.

shots. Do you consider it beautiful? Or is it a lump? I would say it

:19:23.:19:27.

would condiment Concorde lovely in a museum because it is so different.

:19:28.:19:35.

214 of these aircraft were sold. 16 Concorde. Drawing comparisons, in

:19:36.:19:40.

austerity Bristol, not a lot of money about after the war. It had a

:19:41.:19:45.

meal on the table for a lot of local people. Doctor Russell and leisurely

:19:46.:19:52.

freeze the designers of that were very proud of it. It created

:19:53.:19:57.

employment and powered by that great Bristol Hercules engines. We have

:19:58.:20:02.

got more footage of it. Listening to you, you can see the excitement and

:20:03.:20:07.

passion you have. When you first watched the footage, what was it

:20:08.:20:12.

like? Amazing. It is sound film. It is narrated and it gives great

:20:13.:20:17.

detail to how that aircraft can be taken anywhere in the world and

:20:18.:20:21.

simply repaired. Letters have a look at some of the narration in the

:20:22.:20:25.

film. This gives us unobstructed access to the full width of the

:20:26.:20:30.

hold. Any hold itself, ample tying down points are provided. It makes

:20:31.:20:34.

the passengers comfortable while in flight. I love that so much because

:20:35.:20:38.

I could just watch it all day. Is it the freighter or the wayfarer? Is at

:20:39.:20:43.

the passenger one? The wayfarer was the passenger aircraft. First civil

:20:44.:20:50.

aircraft produced by any British producer in the world. It ticked two

:20:51.:20:56.

boxes. The way the doors open: the clamshell doors, that was

:20:57.:20:59.

innovative. The Americans tried it with the Douglas aircraft, but they

:21:00.:21:06.

went from the site. For you go, the DVDs coming out. One thing you have

:21:07.:21:13.

to do come out, Concorde or wayfarer's which one. Interesting.

:21:14.:21:16.

I've got to go for Concorde, but you want a nice cross-section when you

:21:17.:21:22.

open a museum. That is what you're trying to achieve. It is like asking

:21:23.:21:25.

people to choose between their children. It has to be done. I

:21:26.:21:30.

really appreciate that. Good luck with the DVD. What is it called?

:21:31.:21:32.

Wins over Filton. Thank you. It's been one of the hottest hits

:21:33.:21:40.

on TV in a long time and today Some scenes for the new series

:21:41.:21:44.

are being filmed in Wells, which is being transformed

Now, we've had a couple of you asking on our Facebook page

if Ian really is live in our rooftop studio every night!

:24:27.:24:29.

Those are the lights of Bristol right now and who's that down there?

:24:30.:24:50.

Yes, I really am here. Let me remind viewers this is points west are not

Pinewood Studios. We do not have that technology. There are some some

nights where I wish that we did. A cold spell of weather. The forecast

:25:05.:25:08.

this week in, that will remain an underpinning right through the

:25:09.:25:10.

course of Saturday and indeed through Sunday. There will be a view

humiliation of those will very limited. Maybe a centimetre very

a few of this snow flurries during the day. Vulture and parts of Bath

and Somerset. They may take you on a wider view. What remains with us is

increasingly brisk north-easterly flow as we head into Morrow. That is

running these disturbances all the way from the North Sea. On Sunday,

:25:52.:25:57.

everything will shift round to the east. It will be equally cold. An

:25:58.:26:05.

awkward mix on Saturday. The balance between rain, sleet and snow. For

:26:06.:26:12.

the rest of this evening, we will be seeing some light snow. That will

drift away to the south. A largely dry picture. The odd wintry flurries

the grand scheme of things. Temperatures between zero and plus

flurries running in from the north-east. The balance of those in

any one particular district is going to be a little bit awkward, but

really the further north-east you are, the perhaps more prone. The

:26:44.:26:47.

Cotswolds, some as the high ground as he come further south. Nothing of

:26:48.:26:54.

great note, nothing on the scale of previous winters. Nothing like 2010

:26:55.:27:01.

2011. The winters are ticking around there, the wind chill will be huge.

:27:02.:27:06.

A cold day generally. At the strength of the wind and it will

:27:07.:27:13.

feel decidedly better. As it will again as we head through into

:27:14.:27:17.

Sunday. A similar sort of day, similar balance of weather. Next

:27:18.:27:21.

week, temperatures will actually slowly be on the rise. Those of you

:27:22.:27:25.

who are not aficionados of the cold weather, hang in there. There is

hope. Or on a roof. Thank you very much, Ian. By the way, we have got a

:27:31.:27:36.

lovely shot of the moon right now which is beautiful. The full moon is

:27:37.:27:43.

no moon when it isn't peppery. That is real. That is real, too. Goodbye.
