Eddie Jones, about to win the Six Nations again

:00:00.:00:08.

There have been angry scenes in Canterbury today as NHS bosses

:00:09.:00:12.

clashed with residents over plans to change acute hospital

:00:13.:00:16.

Campaigners believe part of the urgent care centre

:00:17.:00:20.

at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital has been earmarked for closure.

:00:21.:00:23.

Today managers said no decision has been made,

:00:24.:00:29.

but there had been problems trying to recruit doctors.

:00:30.:00:33.

In this packed hall it was a chance for residents and campaigners

:00:34.:00:38.

to question those in charge of the hospital services.

:00:39.:00:41.

Health care is a basic right, and we're talking it as though

:00:42.:00:45.

it is some little plan we have to get together.

:00:46.:00:48.

What are you actually doing about it?

:00:49.:00:54.

NHS bosses were outlining the plan to provide sustainable,

:00:55.:00:56.

safe and better quality services across East Kent over

:00:57.:01:01.

But campaigners say there are more pressing issues,

:01:02.:01:05.

such as the possibility of the temporary closure

:01:06.:01:07.

of the urgent care centre in Canterbury because the hospital

:01:08.:01:09.

is struggling to recruit enough consultants.

:01:10.:01:18.

If we lose the urgent care centre because of doctors,

:01:19.:01:26.

and the patients are moved, and although that is temporary,

:01:27.:01:29.

in nine months' time, if it doesn't come back we'll never

:01:30.:01:31.

get them back and that will see the end of our hospital.

:01:32.:01:34.

Things are serious, and quite rightly the trust is monitoring very

:01:35.:01:37.

carefully the current staffing situation and as they have

:01:38.:01:39.

set out this morning, they have been talking to staff

:01:40.:01:41.

East Kent hospital is in the same boat as every other NHS Trust

:01:42.:01:46.

in the country in trying to make efficiency savings.

:01:47.:01:48.

Campaigner fear at one of the trust's three

:01:49.:01:50.

hospitals will close, but bosses disagree and say

:01:51.:01:53.

the current NHS system is outdated and instead there are better ways

:01:54.:01:57.

Proposals for a full public consultation could be

:01:58.:02:04.

A pensioner who repeatedly stabbed a member of staff at a care

:02:05.:02:09.

home has pleaded guilty to her attempted murder.

:02:10.:02:11.

Fred Butcher was charged following the

:02:12.:02:13.

a knife at the care home in Marsham Street in Maidstone.

:02:14.:02:19.

The 79-year-old was only stopped when a visitor pulled him away

:02:20.:02:21.

A cyclist has been killed after a crash in Whitstable last night.

:02:22.:02:28.

Canterbury Road when he was in a collision with a white Vauxhall

:02:29.:02:34.

van travelling in the opposite direction near Saddleton Road.

:02:35.:02:38.

The cyclist died at the scene, while the driver, a 21 year-old

:02:39.:02:41.

local man, has been arrested and is currently in custody.

:02:42.:02:45.

In football, a win for Gillingham and draws for Crawley and Charlton.

:02:46.:02:48.

Brighton and Hove Albion's home win against Derby last night

:02:49.:02:51.

has put them level on points with Championship leaders Newcastle

:02:52.:02:54.

It was a comfortable 3-0 victory for Brighton last night.

:02:55.:03:08.

Their eighth home league win in ten games, widening

:03:09.:03:10.

their lead over third-place Huddersfield and raising hopes of

:03:11.:03:12.

Unstoppable Anthony Knockaert set the scene, firing

:03:13.:03:21.

from the edge of the area to push Brighton ahead after only five

:03:22.:03:25.

A collision between Derby keeper Carson and team-mate Jacob

:03:26.:03:31.

Butterfield led to the medics being called on in the tenth minute.

:03:32.:03:34.

Play was underway three minutes later.

:03:35.:03:36.

Brighton's dominance did not let up and striker Sam Baldock persisted,

:03:37.:03:42.

tried, tried again and it was the third time lucky, doubling

:03:43.:03:48.

Brighton's lead just shy of half-time.

:03:49.:03:53.

Glenn Murray sealed the Albion's win 12 minutes from

:03:54.:03:59.

full-time, firing in from seven yards off a low

:04:00.:04:01.

Of Brighton's nine matches remaining,

:04:02.:04:03.

eight are against sides at the

:04:04.:04:07.

Now let's have a look at the weather with Kate Kinsella.

:04:08.:04:19.

It has really quite a pleasant day today and it started off under misty

:04:20.:04:24.

skies and visibility was an issue on the coast, as you can see,

:04:25.:04:27.

but come lunchtime the fog lifted and Eastbourne looked more

:04:28.:04:29.

like this, with blue sky and some sunshine.

:04:30.:04:31.

Quite hazy but very pleasant and mild, nonetheless.

:04:32.:04:35.

Tonight, starting off dry but the rain arriving as we head

:04:36.:04:38.

It is a wet start for many first thing tomorrow,

:04:39.:04:44.

Mostly fairly light rain, drying out the further west

:04:45.:04:47.

Under the cloud and rain it will feel cooler,

:04:48.:04:51.

The rain clears overnight Sunday into Monday and the temperature

:04:52.:04:58.

drops, so a chilly early start on Monday but we should see

:04:59.:05:01.

We will be back tomorrow. Enjoy your evening. Goodbye for now.

:05:02.:05:12.

Good evening. Some of us managed to get some decent weather today, not

:05:13.:05:21.

everybody but some of us. Lovely picture from a weather watcher in

:05:22.:05:25.

Northern Ireland, Enniskillen, and in Northern Ireland we have the

:05:26.:05:29.

warmest day of the year for Northern Ireland, 16 Celsius. The Southeast a

:05:30.:05:34.

little warmer weather cloud broke up, 18 Celsius, but we have also had

:05:35.:05:39.

some light rain, and if anything this coming even in the clouds will

:05:40.:05:45.

thicken up again in some areas, so for a number of

:05:46.:05:46.
