Good evening. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time

:00:00.:00:08.

A 37-year-old man from Rochester has died in a crash on Chatham Road

:00:09.:00:11.

in Maidstone after his car collided with trees.

:00:12.:00:15.

Police were called to the scene on the A229 slip road

:00:16.:00:19.

towards the Running Horse Roundabout shortly after 3:30am this morning.

:00:20.:00:23.

A pioneering scheme in Sussex designed to tackle loneliness should

:00:24.:00:30.

continue after its current funding expires in June,

:00:31.:00:32.

The project allows doctors to prescribe social activities,

:00:33.:00:37.

Struggling to care for her husband, who has dementia, Anna had

:00:38.:00:44.

But joining a local bowls club has set her well on the way to recovery.

:00:45.:00:53.

Thanks to a prescription from her GP.

:00:54.:00:55.

I was crying a lot for a whole month, and I couldn't get

:00:56.:00:59.

I needed people talking with me and helping me through a very,

:01:00.:01:03.

It's estimated one in five patients who visit their GPs don't primarily

:01:04.:01:15.

Many of them just need somebody to talk to.

:01:16.:01:19.

Under the social prescribing scheme, doctors can refer these patients

:01:20.:01:22.

to voluntary groups, who match them up with activities

:01:23.:01:24.

Social prescribing will save the lives of a lot of older

:01:25.:01:30.

It makes a world of difference to the patient.

:01:31.:01:34.

It means the doctor is freeing up appointments to see other people,

:01:35.:01:37.

Medicine and wellness is more than tablets.

:01:38.:01:42.

What we have to do is commit the will of the Government

:01:43.:01:45.

The pilot project's ?76,000 funding from Crawley Borough

:01:46.:01:51.

But the town's Conservative MP is hopeful it can become permanent.

:01:52.:01:57.

Crawley, several years ago, was designated

That wasn't just a label, that is something that again has

meant that Crawley is in the lead in this issue, and I think we can be

:02:04.:02:07.

in the lead in terms of tackling loneliness as well.

:02:08.:02:11.

The Council says its decision about whether to keep funding

:02:12.:02:14.

the scheme will depend on evidence that it really is helping

:02:15.:02:16.

to reduce the pressure on health and social care.

:02:17.:02:20.

The key challenge currently facing all our local authorities.

Her family say she's left a huge hole in their hearts.

Hundreds of people gathered in Ramsgate today for the 75th

:03:19.:03:20.

anniversary of the Channel Dash. A ceremony and flypast were held

:03:21.:03:23.

at the harbour to mark the day 18 pilots took off from Manston

:03:24.:03:26.

to attack the largest German fleet ever assembled.

:03:27.:03:28.

Only five of the men survived the attack in 1942,

Football, and a sixth successive home league win for Brighton briefly

saw them move to the top of the Championship table.

:03:35.:03:36.

With that and the rest of the weekend's action,

:03:37.:03:38.

It was a pretty one-sided affair at the Amex.

:03:39.:03:42.

12 minutes in, and Tomer Hemed capitalised on a fine cross

:03:43.:03:44.

And after the break, Sam Baldock doubled the lead.

:03:45.:03:48.

More cracks appeared in Burton's defence

:03:49.:03:49.

It made the visitors spark into life, but this header

:03:50.:03:54.

from Glenn Murray ended any hope of a comeback.

:03:55.:03:56.

This free kick from Charlton's Ricky Holmes won't be

:03:57.:03:58.

It would have earned them three points against AFC Wimbledon had it

:03:59.:04:03.

not been for this superb finish from Tom Elliott in stoppage time.

:04:04.:04:06.

He was so happy, he got a yellow card for over-celebrating.

:04:07.:04:12.

It was also his second booking, so he was sent off.

:04:13.:04:16.

In Kent, Gillingham were moments away from being beaten

:04:17.:04:19.

Step up debutant Josh Parker, who snatched this goal in the 95th

:04:20.:04:23.

minute, earning a point for the Gills.

:04:24.:04:28.

In-form striker James Collins was on target to put Crawley

:04:29.:04:31.

But it was two goals from the home side's leading scorer, Danny Hylton,

:04:32.:04:37.

which meant Crawley left Kenilworth Road empty-handed.

:04:38.:04:43.

Let's find out what the weather's going to be like.

:04:44.:04:49.

Just a little more cold weather to come before we see some milder

:04:50.:04:54.

Now, tonight, first of all we see quite a lot of cloud around.

:04:55.:04:58.

But then clearer skies moving in the second half of the night.

:04:59.:05:02.

It's unlikely we'll see frost, though, because of that wind.

:05:03.:05:05.

Temperatures getting down to about two or three Celsius.

:05:06.:05:08.

An easterly, biting wind taking the edge off those temperatures.

:05:09.:05:12.

Although there is a good lot of sunshine on offer,

:05:13.:05:14.

and temperatures up to eight or nine Celsius, it's certainly not

:05:15.:05:18.

going to be feeling that warm because of the wind.

:05:19.:05:22.

But, as we head through the week, well, it's still fairly breezy

:05:23.:05:25.

But some sunny spells around on Tuesday.

:05:26.:05:29.

And a bright and breezy day generally, starting

:05:30.:05:33.

On Wednesday, more cloud around and a few showers,

:05:34.:05:37.

but at least we're seeing some double figures.

:05:38.:05:40.

But by the end of the week it's certainly feeling milder,

:05:41.:05:42.

and also a lot drier than we've had the past couple of days.

:05:43.:05:49.

I'll be back at around 11:20pm with another update

:05:50.:05:53.

For now, from all of us here, have a good evening.

:05:54.:06:10.

Good evening, dull, grey, cold, miserable. And that's just me! The

:06:11.:06:17.

weather hasn't been great leader for most of us, it will be chilly out

:06:18.:06:21.

there with this nagging easterly breeze, wetter weather for Northern

:06:22.:06:26.

Ireland, by the end of the night most of the dampness across parts of

Eastern Scotland and North East England, most of the high ground
