We are back with the late news at 10.15pm.

0:00:000:00:01

Good evening.

0:00:110:00:12

Police will be handing out leaflets at Bristol nightclub

0:00:120:00:14

The Thekla tonight, a week on from the disappearance

0:00:140:00:17

of 26-year-old Lewis Ball.

0:00:170:00:20

Lewis was last seen leaving the club at 3:20am on Sunday morning.

0:00:200:00:23

Police have also released a picture of a woman they think may have

0:00:230:00:26

seen him that night, and who might be able to help.

0:00:260:00:29

Over the last week teams have been searching the area around the club

0:00:290:00:32

and checking through footage taken that night.

0:00:320:00:35

We don't know where he went from there.

0:00:350:00:38

We are looking at CCTV extensively to try to find that out

0:00:380:00:41

but we do know that a woman left at about the same time as Lewis

0:00:410:00:45

and we're keen to speak to that woman.

0:00:450:00:47

She may have information to help us find Lewis.

0:00:470:00:50

She might be able to tell us where he went, what direction,

0:00:500:00:53

so if she is watching this, I'd implore her to come forward

0:00:530:00:57

and I'd ask for anyone that knows her to speak to us as well.

0:00:570:01:00

Police are also continuing to search for a prisoner who absconded

0:01:000:01:03

from Leyhill open prison in South Gloucestershire

0:01:030:01:06

on Thursday.

0:01:060:01:07

Nicholas Briggs is serving a sentence for domestic assault.

0:01:070:01:10

Police say not to approach him but call 999.

0:01:100:01:13

Another prisoner, Anthony McCormick, absconded at the same time.

0:01:130:01:17

He handed himself in at a South Wales Police station last night.

0:01:170:01:22

A woman from South Gloucestershire who was seriously injured

0:01:220:01:24

when she was attacked by two dogs says she's relieved one of

0:01:240:01:28

the animals should now be destroyed.

0:01:280:01:30

Donna Croft was helping out at a kennels in South Gloucestershire

0:01:300:01:33

when she was mauled last August.

0:01:330:01:35

Tracey Miller has been to see how she's recovering.

0:01:350:01:37

Her report contains pictures of the injuries.

0:01:370:01:41

Six months since the horrific attack, Donna is still recovering.

0:01:410:01:47

How are your legs now?

0:01:470:01:48

They're not very nice.

0:01:480:01:49

They sting quite a lot because my nerves are coming back together.

0:01:490:01:52

I've got to see those scars every day so it's had a massive impact.

0:01:520:01:56

It's been tiring.

0:01:560:01:57

I'm exhausted.

0:01:570:01:58

She'd been helping to change drinking water at Baromar Kennels

0:01:580:02:01

when an American pit bull and a King Corso like this attacked

0:02:010:02:05

her and pulled her to the ground.

0:02:050:02:08

Her friend Alan managed to unclamp the jaws of the dog.

0:02:080:02:11

But soon after the attack, the dogs were collected by their owners.

0:02:110:02:15

These dogs, the pit bull had a history and the severity of it,

0:02:150:02:19

I can't understand why they ever managed to walk

0:02:190:02:21

out of those kennels.

0:02:210:02:25

American pit bulls like these have to be registered by law.

0:02:250:02:28

The one involved in this attack was registered,

0:02:280:02:30

which is why police say they had no powers that day to

0:02:300:02:33

seize or destroy it.

0:02:330:02:36

I've just been in and spoken to the owners of Baromar Kennels

0:02:360:02:39

and they've declined to speak to us on camera.

0:02:390:02:42

But South Gloucestershire council have just completed a health

0:02:420:02:44

and safety investigation here and say they have now passed it

0:02:440:02:48

on to their legal department.

0:02:480:02:51

Now a magistrate has ruled that this pit bull must be destroyed

0:02:510:02:54

and it must be handed in.

0:02:540:02:56

She can appeal.

0:02:560:02:58

Obviously the dog will be kept in custody.

0:02:580:03:02

If she does appeal it will go to Crown Court and it will be

0:03:020:03:06

another story again.

0:03:060:03:07

Are you ready for that? Oh, yes, I'm ready.

0:03:070:03:14

In football, the second period is just under way

0:03:140:03:17

in this afternoon's games.

0:03:170:03:18

Here were the half-time scores.

0:03:180:03:19

Matty Taylor's first Bristol City goal got the ball rolling.

0:03:190:03:22

They led 3-0.

0:03:220:03:24

Bristol Rovers were pegged back by Bradford.

0:03:240:03:26

Swindon and Cheltenham were trailing.

0:03:260:03:27

Yeovil got the only goal against Leyton Orient,

0:03:270:03:30

and it was all square at Forest Green.

0:03:300:03:34

It's at a similar stage in the rugby, with Gloucester

0:03:340:03:36

taking on Leicester at Welford Road.

0:03:360:03:37

It's not been easy so far for the away team.

0:03:370:03:40

They trailed 20-3 at the break in the Premiership.

0:03:400:03:43

Bristol players scored five of England's tries as they beat

0:03:430:03:46

Wales 63-0 at Cardiff Arms Park.

0:03:460:03:49

Danielle Waterman and Amy Wilson-Hardy scored two,

0:03:490:03:51

and captain Sarah Hunter also crossed the line.

0:03:510:03:55

Finally, Bath's Queen Square was transformed into a World War One

0:03:550:03:59

field hospital today.

0:03:590:04:00

It was all part of a heritage lottery funded project to celebrate

0:04:000:04:03

the work carried out by local hospitals during the war.

0:04:030:04:07

Actors appeared as soldiers, nurses and doctors -

0:04:070:04:09

and local schools were involved, performing and learning

0:04:090:04:12

about the lives of real local people from the time.

0:04:120:04:15

Well, it was bitter out there for them today.

0:04:150:04:17

Let's see what's ahead.

0:04:170:04:18

Here's Lucy Martin.

0:04:180:04:20

We're sticking with the wintry feel as we move through

0:04:200:04:23

the rest of the weekend.

0:04:230:04:23

Through tonight we will be largely cloudy, some outbreaks of rain

0:04:230:04:27

which could be a little wintry, temperatures falling

0:04:270:04:30

to an overnight low of between zero and three degrees Celsius,

0:04:300:04:33

so looking at a cold start to tomorrow.

0:04:330:04:35

Plenty of cloud around from the word go, again some outbreaks of rain

0:04:350:04:39

which could contain some sleet and snow and as we move

0:04:390:04:42

into the afternoon becoming a little drier with one or two bright

0:04:420:04:45

intervals, temperatures at a maximum of five Celsius with that easterly

0:04:450:04:49

breeze taking the edge off but the good news is as we move

0:04:490:04:52

through the night into Monday we start to draw in some milder air,

0:04:520:04:55

so it looks like Monday will be drier and brighter

0:04:550:04:57

although there will be a strong easterly breeze as well.

0:04:570:05:00

That's it.

0:05:000:05:02

We're back tomorrow.

0:05:020:05:04

Enjoy your evening and the rest of the weekend!

0:05:040:05:06

Bye-bye.
