Good evening.

0:00:070:00:08

Residents in a Kent village say it's a miracle that no-one was killed

0:00:080:00:11

or seriously injured in a crash today which brought down phone lines

0:00:110:00:14

and blocked the streets.

0:00:140:00:15

The incident involving a Land Rover and a lorry happened at around 8.30

0:00:150:00:18

this morning in Horsmonden.

0:00:180:00:19

Residents say it highlights the danger of the main crossroads.

0:00:190:00:26

The scene that residents in this Kent village

0:00:260:00:29

woke up to this morning.

0:00:290:00:30

Some said they heard a loud bang and came out of their homes to find

0:00:300:00:33

what has been described as mayhem.

0:00:330:00:35

I got up and had a look at what was going on,

0:00:350:00:44

saw the telegraph pole was down and the phone box has gone,

0:00:440:00:47

and the lorry in the garden.

0:00:480:00:49

A police cordon was put in place to investigate what happened

0:00:490:00:51

and the extent of the damage to an estate agents.

0:00:510:00:54

Telephone lines were down in the village.

0:00:540:00:56

The cause of that clear to see.

0:00:560:00:57

It's a scene of devastation.

0:00:570:00:59

Thank goodness, no-one has been seriously hurt.

0:00:590:01:01

But the potential, there is always a threat for us here,

0:01:010:01:04

we're very worried about it.

0:01:040:01:05

Something needs to be done, in my view.

0:01:050:01:07

I think it's the feeling of the village.

0:01:070:01:11

It's believed the Land Rover failed to stop at a junction,

0:01:110:01:14

heading into the path of the lorry.

0:01:140:01:17

Although it's unclear if speed was an issue,

0:01:170:01:19

residents have long campaigned for better safety measures

0:01:190:01:21

at the crossroads.

0:01:210:01:22

One of those things that we expect to happen every so often,

0:01:220:01:25

because this crossroads is so dangerous.

0:01:250:01:26

People drive too quickly, for one thing, but they also ignore

0:01:260:01:29

some of the road signs.

0:01:290:01:33

It's thought both drivers suffered minor injuries.

0:01:330:01:35

Residents want to see changes to stop anything

0:01:350:01:37

like this happening again.

0:01:370:01:43

Two women who lost their sisters to ovarian cancer -

0:01:430:01:45

together with 40 supporters - have completed a 13-mile walk around

0:01:450:01:48

Bewl Water today to raise awareness of the symptoms.

0:01:480:01:50

Gill Campbell's twin sister Wendy, who lived in Cranbrook,

0:01:500:01:52

put off going to the doctor after mistaking symptoms

0:01:520:01:54

for minor conditions.

0:01:550:01:56

When she DID go, her cancer was too advanced and she died

0:01:560:01:58

just months later.

0:01:580:02:05

It was horrible to see her suffering.

0:02:050:02:07

I don't want other women to have to go through what Wendy went

0:02:070:02:10

through, and I don't want families to have to see their loved

0:02:100:02:13

ones suffer like we had to watch Wendy suffer.

0:02:130:02:15

So it is to raise awareness and to raise funds for much-needed

0:02:150:02:18

research into ovarian cancer.

0:02:180:02:22

Children as young as eight have been found to be sharing inappropriate

0:02:220:02:25

photos of themselves on the internet, according

0:02:250:02:26

to Sussex Police.

0:02:260:02:27

The force is trying to encourage young people to resist sharing

0:02:270:02:30

explicit selfies online.

0:02:300:02:31

They've launched a campaign today to tackle the problem.

0:02:310:02:33

As Charlotte Wright reports, the issue has even been

0:02:330:02:35

tackled by popular soaps.

0:02:350:02:39

You took that photo!

0:02:390:02:40

You posed for it!

0:02:400:02:41

Risky and reckless, a recent plotline in East Enders examines how

0:02:410:02:44

taking a nude selfie can have devastating consequences.

0:02:440:02:46

You sent it to Bex.

0:02:460:02:48

You broke the law.

0:02:480:02:53

Sussex Police say it is a hidden problem among young

0:02:530:02:56

people in the county.

0:02:560:02:57

The point of this campaign is to make them understand

0:02:570:02:59

the consequences of sharing.

0:02:590:03:01

I have this week spoken to a mum who was really concerned

0:03:010:03:04

about her 11-year-old daughter at primary school, who had actually

0:03:040:03:06

made a really big mistake and shared a nude selfie at school,

0:03:060:03:09

and as a result was being bullied.

0:03:090:03:13

And that can escalate.

0:03:130:03:14

That can turn into any form of exploitation,

0:03:140:03:16

particularly child sex exploitation, which is why this is such

0:03:160:03:18

an important issue today.

0:03:180:03:21

The police are trying to reach out to young people,

0:03:210:03:24

using one of the very devices that they are warning them

0:03:240:03:26

about, the mobile phones.

0:03:260:03:27

They have made videos for social media sites

0:03:270:03:29

like Snapchat and YouTube.

0:03:290:03:30

The animations tell the story of a child becoming the victim

0:03:300:03:33

of blackmail and exploitation.

0:03:330:03:34

Police say they are based on real experiences.

0:03:340:03:40

It's a good idea, because people might be looking at stuff they're

0:03:400:03:43

not supposed to and might be chatting to people they

0:03:430:03:45

are not supposed to.

0:03:450:03:47

Me and my wife have both spoken to her and her sister

0:03:470:03:50

about putting stuff on, you know, inappropriate stuff.

0:03:500:03:52

I think she's quite clued up, actually.

0:03:520:03:53

The campaign will appear on social media throughout this month.

Charlotte Wright, BBC South East Today, Hove.

0:03:570:04:06

Now Elizabeth Rizzini has the weather forecast.

0:04:060:04:07

Hello, good evening.

0:04:070:04:08

It was a rather cloudy day today, but there were some spells

0:04:080:04:11

of brightness and sunshine earlier, as spotted by our weather watchers.

0:04:110:04:14

Tomorrow is looking quite similar.

0:04:140:04:15

There will be some brighter spells through the afternoon in particular,

0:04:150:04:18

but it's going to turn windy, particularly blustery, of course,

0:04:180:04:20

near the south coast, with that westerly wind picking up.

0:04:200:04:22

Still quite breezy overnight tonight.

0:04:220:04:24

Lots of low cloud, a bit of hill fog over the Downs, maybe.

0:04:240:04:27

A mild start, with double figures into tomorrow morning.

0:04:270:04:29

So tomorrow, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a bit of drizzle

0:04:290:04:32

just falling from the thickness of the cloud, but certainly,

0:04:320:04:35

most of us seeing a dry day, and the cloud will thin and break

0:04:350:04:38

to give us those brighter spells.

0:04:380:04:39

Just feeling quite windy.

0:04:390:04:41

Top temperatures in the best of any brightness 14 or 15 Celsius.

0:04:410:04:43

As we start the new working week, it's rather wet and grey.

0:04:430:04:46

Some proper rain around on Monday, still windy.

0:04:460:04:48

It will clear to leave us something brighter and cooler.

0:04:480:04:55

That's all from us for now, we'll be back with the breakfast

0:04:550:04:58

news tomorrow morning.

0:04:580:04:59

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

0:04:590:05:00

Goodbye.
