Here, on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:10.

A warning that people in Bristol could be more at risk because not

:00:11.:00:18.

enough is being done to detect the virus.

:00:19.:00:20.

The trickshot which has gripped millions.

:00:21.:00:29.

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

:00:30.:00:32.

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

:00:33.:00:34.

It was just a really frustrating experience,

:00:35.:00:36.

and we regretted ever starting the whole thing.

:00:37.:00:38.

And tomorrow will bring an increasingly windy day,

:00:39.:00:40.

still looking comparatively mild but not so on Thursday.

:00:41.:00:42.

There are warnings that people in Bristol are being put

:00:43.:00:55.

at increased risk of contracting HIV because recommended checks for it

:00:56.:00:57.

Rates of infection in the city are so high that some organisations

:00:58.:01:02.

say anyone being admitted to hospital or registering with a GP

:01:03.:01:06.

Our health correspondent, Matthew Hill, reports.

:01:07.:01:12.

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

:01:13.:01:15.

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

:01:16.:01:18.

And its impact was immediate - with people changing

:01:19.:01:23.

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

:01:24.:01:30.

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

:01:31.:01:34.

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

:01:35.:01:38.

there are now more than two living with HIV.

:01:39.:01:43.

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

:01:44.:01:46.

Nice say we ought to be offering everyone being admitted

:01:47.:01:51.

to hospital an HIV test, as well as everyone registering

:01:52.:01:54.

But at the moment, this is simply not happening.

:01:55.:02:00.

And that could put people at risk of HIV infection.

:02:01.:02:04.

Becky was diagnosed with HIV four years ago.

:02:05.:02:07.

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

:02:08.:02:10.

sentence for deliberately infecting her and another woman.

:02:11.:02:15.

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

:02:16.:02:17.

months into the relationship, saying he was HIV positive but

:02:18.:02:20.

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

:02:21.:02:25.

Really sad, because it was so unnecessary.

:02:26.:02:34.

I know that people's lives change, but there

:02:35.:02:40.

And he chose not to say anything and took my choice away from me.

:02:41.:02:44.

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

:02:45.:02:49.

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

:02:50.:02:52.

The City Council's about to run a pilot offering HIV tests

:02:53.:02:56.

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

:02:57.:03:00.

for hospital testing - they say that's down to the NHS.

:03:01.:03:04.

There genuinely needs to be a robust assessment of the costs,

:03:05.:03:09.

and that's what we're doing at the moment - we're

:03:10.:03:11.

negotiating with GPs around the cost and with our NHS

:03:12.:03:14.

As the arguments continue over who should pay for testing,

:03:15.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:24.

Matthew Hill, BBC Points West, Bristol.

:03:25.:03:28.

So are people still aware of the dangers of HIV?

:03:29.:03:31.

In a recent study the Terence Higgins trust found that: One

:03:32.:03:34.

in seven young people did not receive any sex or relationship

:03:35.:03:37.

Three in five say they were not taught about HIV in school.

:03:38.:03:43.

Half of young people rated the Sex and Relationship Education

:03:44.:03:48.

they received in school as either poor or terrible.

:03:49.:03:51.

I asked Alex Sparrowhawk from the charity if he

:03:52.:03:54.

It is a shocking statistic, but unfortunately we're not surprised.

:03:55.:04:01.

We know ourselves at Terrence Higgins Trust that not

:04:02.:04:03.

enough young people are receiving adequate sex and

:04:04.:04:05.

What do you think is the answer, then?

:04:06.:04:10.

We believe that sex and relationships education should

:04:11.:04:14.

be statutory in all schools and should be taught well and that

:04:15.:04:17.

teachers should be trained well to provide it to young people

:04:18.:04:22.

so they can grow up and they can know and be informed how to look

:04:23.:04:26.

Because in the past, there were adverts, there

:04:27.:04:31.

I think definitely HIV and sexual health have

:04:32.:04:38.

fallen off the agenda - especially today, when people

:04:39.:04:41.

with HIV can live healthy lives, thanks to the medication that's

:04:42.:04:44.

But that doesn't mean that it's not a serious condition.

:04:45.:04:49.

It's something that people live with long term and it's something

:04:50.:04:52.

that young people deserve to know about and they should be able

:04:53.:04:56.

to know how they can protect themselves from it, as well.

:04:57.:04:58.

So, I guess if the current trend of education carries on, the next

:04:59.:05:02.

We are calling for them to end the silence with regards to sex

:05:03.:05:07.

and relationships education and for the government to take

:05:08.:05:10.

What are you guys finding on the street here, as well,

:05:11.:05:14.

as to the level of education amongst adults, as well?

:05:15.:05:18.

Education amongst adults is also poor.

:05:19.:05:19.

A survey we ran just before Christmas, we found that one in five

:05:20.:05:23.

people in the UK still believe that you can get HIV from kissing,

:05:24.:05:27.

and that's not true - that's a myth that we thought

:05:28.:05:29.

was debunked a long time ago and unfortunately

:05:30.:05:31.

Do you think people have become just lax about learning about Aids,

:05:32.:05:37.

when in the past it was seen as such a virulent outcome to have?

:05:38.:05:41.

We are 30 years away since the tombstone adverts

:05:42.:05:46.

and there's been no national campaign since then to inform people

:05:47.:05:51.

about HIV and to update them on their knowledge of HIV.

:05:52.:05:54.

It's a very different condition to what it was then,

:05:55.:05:57.

but it's still a very serious condition and it's still something

:05:58.:05:59.

that a lot of people in the UK have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.

:06:00.:06:03.

A retired accountant from Cheltenham who retrained as a masseur has been

:06:04.:06:11.

sent to prison for sexually assaulting some of his clients.

:06:12.:06:16.

Malcolm Baker was found guilty of sexually assaulting six women.

:06:17.:06:18.

Jailing him for 15 months, a judge said it was

:06:19.:06:21.

A Wiltshire MP has called for proceeds from the new Sugar Tax

:06:22.:06:30.

to be spent encouraging inactive children to take up sport.

:06:31.:06:33.

Justin Tomlinson has highlighted the approach used by this Swindon

:06:34.:06:35.

He called a special commons debate this afternoon,

:06:36.:06:39.

saying such clubs could help cut childhood obesity.

:06:40.:06:43.

I would also like to see all school facilities made available for free

:06:44.:06:46.

between the hours of four and six o'clock to any organisation

:06:47.:06:49.

that is doing it as a voluntary activity, so if some parents get

:06:50.:06:55.

together and say, we wish to put on netball club,

:06:56.:06:57.

football club, basketball club, I don't mind, as long

:06:58.:07:01.

as it's a constructive activity for young people.

:07:02.:07:03.

The new tax is being introduced after figures showed

:07:04.:07:06.

the problem was costing the NHS ?6 billion a year.

:07:07.:07:12.

It's all been set up and filmed at a sports bar in Bristol.

:07:13.:07:17.

The pair behind it spent all night getting it right.

:07:18.:07:20.

Now they've got millions of hits online.

:07:21.:07:22.

A golf putt combined with some pool and snooker tricks

:07:23.:07:30.

It takes you on a 500-feet journey that lasts two minutes,

:07:31.:07:37.

Although it didn't feel that way to the two men behind it.

:07:38.:07:44.

They spent all night setting up the trick,

:07:45.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:50.

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

:07:51.:07:53.

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

:07:54.:07:57.

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

:07:58.:07:59.

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

:08:00.:08:04.

Shane O'Hara was the creator of the trick.

:08:05.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:12.

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

:08:13.:08:19.

for the last two hours, we were so frustrated.

:08:20.:08:23.

We didn't want to talk to each other.

:08:24.:08:25.

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

:08:26.:08:29.

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

:08:30.:08:31.

It was just a really frustrating experience,

:08:32.:08:33.

and we regretted ever starting the whole thing.

:08:34.:08:34.

But the two minutes make it worthwhile.

:08:35.:08:36.

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

:08:37.:08:43.

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

:08:44.:08:47.

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

:08:48.:08:50.

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

:08:51.:08:53.

Just have to take some hypnosis to become a little bit

:08:54.:08:57.

more patient and do it, I think.

:08:58.:08:59.

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

:09:00.:09:02.

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

:09:03.:09:05.

Scott Ellis, BBC Points West, Bristol.

:09:06.:09:13.

And you can watch that amazing footage again at bbc.co.uk/bristol.

:09:14.:09:19.

Football now, and Yeovil Town have made it into the quarterfinals

:09:20.:09:22.

They beat Reading under-21s 4-2 in the third round.

:09:23.:09:31.

Cheltenham thrashed Leicester under-21s 6-1

:09:32.:09:36.

and in the National League, Forest Green drew 1-1

:09:37.:09:38.

That's it from us tonight. We're back with you in breakfast tomorrow

:09:39.:09:49.

from 6:30am. For now, I'll say good night and leave you with tonight's

:09:50.:09:52.

forecast. Hello and a very

:09:53.:09:54.

good evening to you. It's a fairly straightforward story

:09:55.:09:56.

as we head on into tomorrow in terms of it becoming

:09:57.:09:59.

an increasingly windy day. Those winds changing

:10:00.:10:01.

to a north-westerly quarter. It will be a fairly mild day

:10:02.:10:02.

for a good part of it, but ultimately colder air will start

:10:03.:10:06.

to spread in from the north. Now, through the rest of tonight,

:10:07.:10:08.

we'll see temperatures barely dropping away from where they sit

:10:09.:10:11.

now, so about five to seven Celsius. There will be thicker cloud

:10:12.:10:14.

the second half of the night, some patchy light rain

:10:15.:10:17.

sinking its way south-eastwards. Some of you still seeing that

:10:18.:10:18.

first light tomorrow. And then we're in for a day

:10:19.:10:23.

where the general complexion of it will be the winds increasing,

:10:24.:10:26.

some bright spells, Mostly dry, just one or two light

:10:27.:10:28.

passing showers but, as I mentioned, it will be turning colder

:10:29.:10:32.

towards the end of it. Now, prior to then,

:10:33.:10:34.

temperatures actually will have been above average,

:10:35.:10:36.

so we're likely to get up as high Not so as we head

:10:37.:10:39.

through into Thursday. Lot of uncertainty

:10:40.:10:43.

still for Thursday. If nothing else, it's looking

:10:44.:10:44.

we are at threat of seeing a wet day developing,

:10:45.:10:47.

but there is a low risk that some A Met Office warning for that

:10:48.:10:50.

applies at the moment. We will update you

:10:51.:10:56.

of course tomorrow. Here's a look now at

:10:57.:10:57.

your national forecast. of the week, and to start the

:10:58.:11:06.

weekend as well. For more on that snow situation, over to Jay Wynne

:11:07.:11:07.

now. Quite a lot going on over the next

:11:08.:11:18.

few
