Dog owners are being warned they could be prosecuted

:00:00.:00:08.

and their pets shot dead if they allow them to attack sheep.

:00:09.:00:13.

It's lambing season, but one farmer in Sussex

:00:14.:00:15.

Two dogs attacked a flock of 200 sheep belonging to Jack Holt,

:00:16.:00:24.

14 ewes died, between them carrying 24 lambs.

:00:25.:00:32.

Two other ewes had already aborted their lambs because of the trauma,

:00:33.:00:35.

and Mr Holt believes that could just be the start.

:00:36.:00:37.

We have had problems before but nothing on this size.

:00:38.:00:42.

I would say the dogs would probably do it again if they got the chance,

:00:43.:00:46.

but it is down to the owners to control them and just

:00:47.:00:48.

The National Farmers Union says livestock worrying costs

:00:49.:00:56.

the industry ?1.2 million a year, with many losses uninsured.

:00:57.:00:59.

If a dog does worry livestock, the owner can be prosecuted

:01:00.:01:07.

and the farmer has a right to shoot the dog if it is found

:01:08.:01:10.

85% of the South Downs National Park is farmed, but it is popular

:01:11.:01:14.

The park authority has launched a light-hearted campaign to remind

:01:15.:01:19.

One of our favourite birds in the South Downs is the Skylark

:01:20.:01:32.

and it has its nest on the ground, and dogs can disturb birds

:01:33.:01:35.

by rushing at them and their nests and then the birds will fly off

:01:36.:01:38.

and abandon their young if they are scared.

:01:39.:01:40.

The police are investigating an incident involving Jack Holt's

:01:41.:01:42.

flock, the cost of which currently stands at ?5,000.

:01:43.:01:45.

A cheetah at Port Lympne reserve in Kent has escaped.

:01:46.:01:47.

The wild cat was outside its enclosure for nearly half

:01:48.:01:50.

an hour before being enticed back into a safe area.

:01:51.:01:52.

The park was evacuated during a standard procedure.

:01:53.:01:55.

Nigel Farage has confirmed his intention

:01:56.:01:57.

in a television interview to stand for election if the seat

:01:58.:02:00.

he contested in the general election becomes available.

:02:01.:02:02.

The Ukip MEP lost to the Conservative candidate

:02:03.:02:06.

Police are investigating allegations of election fraud in South Thanet.

:02:07.:02:10.

Speaking on the Sunday Politics Mr Farage indicated his parliamentary

:02:11.:02:12.

Winning seats in parliament under a first

:02:13.:02:40.

past the post system is not the only way to change politics in Britain.

:02:41.:02:43.

I would like to think I have proved that.

:02:44.:02:46.

More than 100 former Royal Marines bandsmen known as the All Stars

:02:47.:02:48.

will play their last annual concert at Margate's Winter Gardens.

:02:49.:02:51.

The event commemorates the 11 men killed by the IRA bombing

:02:52.:02:54.

They've long retired from service, and many have not met

:02:55.:02:59.

But within minutes they're bandsmen again.

:03:00.:03:01.

They passed through the Royal Marines School of Music

:03:02.:03:06.

And most have memories of its saddest day.

:03:07.:03:09.

I've heard it go off and of course I did not know

:03:10.:03:13.

what it was and I was driving to Canterbury and it was

:03:14.:03:16.

on the radio and there was ambulances passing me and fire

:03:17.:03:19.

engines and so I thought, this is serious.

:03:20.:03:22.

The annual concert has been taking place every year

:03:23.:03:24.

It began as a way of remembering the 11 who died and to raise money

:03:25.:03:30.

for the disaster fund, but it has gone on to raise around

:03:31.:03:33.

We've got about 800 people coming tonight and it's just

:03:34.:03:44.

It is sad, in a way, but then everything comes to an end.

:03:45.:03:51.

And out of this something else will happen.

:03:52.:03:53.

It will be a moving moment from many in the audience as the bandsmen

:03:54.:03:56.

But it will be proof that even in the face of tragedy

:03:57.:04:00.

And now the weather with Lucy Martin.

:04:01.:04:05.

It was a fairly cloudy and damp end to the weekend,

:04:06.:04:08.

but moving into next week we have something drier and

:04:09.:04:11.

Moving through this evening and overnight the rain fizzles

:04:12.:04:14.

Largely cloudy with some clear spells developing further west.

:04:15.:04:18.

Some high level cloud for a time turning the sunshine hazy,

:04:19.:04:25.

but then some beautiful sunshine moving through in the late

:04:26.:04:27.

Add in the light winds it will feel quite pleasant in any sunshine.

:04:28.:04:34.

More cloud on Tuesday and Wednesday but some brighter

:04:35.:04:40.

Quite a settled picture, mild and also dry.

:04:41.:04:49.

That is all from us. We are back tomorrow morning at 6:30am. Good

:04:50.:04:55.

But from all of us here, have a good night.

:04:56.:05:04.

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

:05:05.:05:10.

there was sunshine for western areas during the afternoon, and here are

:05:11.:05:13.

the clear skies at sunset in Northern Ireland. Thanks to weather

:05:14.:05:19.

watcher Robin for this picture, those clear skies have been making

:05:20.:05:23.

their way further east ward. Temperatures are dropping away, we

:05:24.:05:27.

have seen temperatures of freezing in parts of Northern Ireland. More

:05:28.:05:30.

cloud rolling in during the latter part of the night but towns and

:05:31.:05:34.

cities down the five and six m the countryside many of us will see the

:05:35.:05:38.

temperatures a degree or so above freezing, so a slight touch of frost

:05:39.:05:44.

across the rural parts of England and Wales for instance, Scotland

:05:45.:05:45.

too. We will

:05:46.:05:47.
