Six people have been taken to hospital -

:00:00.:00:10.

two with life-threatening injuries - after a collision

:00:11.:00:14.

between a car and pedestrians on the High Street in

:00:15.:00:17.

The driver of a black VW Beetle is being treated for minor injuries

:00:18.:00:21.

The two most seriously injured pedestrians have been taken

:00:22.:00:25.

Schools in Medway are struggling to recruit and retain teachers

:00:26.:00:30.

and are having to look overseas to fill empty places.

:00:31.:00:32.

The Council says they're losing out to London and more

:00:33.:00:39.

Bansal primary in Medway is classed as outstanding by Ofsted, no mean

:00:40.:00:51.

feat in an area where finding and keeping teachers is a

:00:52.:00:54.

For one, neighbouring London can tempt them away with

:00:55.:00:57.

enhanced salaries but there's another hurdle.

:00:58.:00:59.

I think there has certainly in the past, a view that

:01:00.:01:01.

Medway is a difficult place to work, pupils are challenging and there

:01:02.:01:04.

I think colleagues are working really,

:01:05.:01:07.

really hard to change that and, certainly in Medway schools, results

:01:08.:01:10.

are improving and we expect that to continue.

:01:11.:01:11.

Medway Council is looking as far afield as South Africa and

:01:12.:01:14.

It's holding a recruitment fair on Wednesday.

:01:15.:01:18.

Some say the Government is doing its bit.

:01:19.:01:24.

For the year 2016-2017, there are 15,000 extra trainee teachers

:01:25.:01:27.

What we have seen over the last 20 years, irrespective of

:01:28.:01:30.

different political parties, has been a stability in a number

:01:31.:01:33.

But Government figures show, over the last few years,

:01:34.:01:38.

the numbers leaving the profession have gone up while

:01:39.:01:40.

recruitment targets have been consistently missed.

:01:41.:01:42.

The announcement of ?320 million more

:01:43.:01:43.

for free schools has missed the point, say some.

:01:44.:01:51.

I've always supported good schools expanding.

:01:52.:01:52.

I think I'd much rather see people putting

:01:53.:01:54.

their focus will do that, rather than just building another school

:01:55.:01:57.

and another school, and another school, with no guarantee of success

:01:58.:02:00.

The national union of teachers blames workload for so

:02:01.:02:11.

One third quit within five years of joining.

:02:12.:02:22.

Thousands of people have taken part in the 33rd Hastings half marathon.

:02:23.:02:24.

The winner Ben Fish battled the windy conditions.

:02:25.:02:26.

It's a second win for the man nicknamed the Blackburn flyer.

:02:27.:02:31.

The finish is very tough in that headwind.

:02:32.:02:35.

It is a very hard last two and a half miles along there.

:02:36.:02:38.

My best time was 67:08 when I won it seven years ago.

:02:39.:02:46.

If the conditions were like last week, I

:02:47.:02:48.

But I knew going in that it would be difficult.

:02:49.:02:52.

Football, and it was dreadful weekend of results.

:02:53.:02:54.

Brighton failed to go top after losing to Leeds United.

:02:55.:03:06.

The Leeds goalkeeper Robert Green kept his side

:03:07.:03:08.

Knockaert and Glenn Murray, the Brighton players,

:03:09.:03:11.

It was nearly an hour before the first shot on target.

:03:12.:03:15.

The Seagulls needed a win to return to the top of the

:03:16.:03:19.

championship after Newcastle drew at Birmingham.

:03:20.:03:21.

If Chris Hughton's side is going to win promotion this

:03:22.:03:23.

season, it's going to be a nerve-racking affair.

:03:24.:03:26.

In the League 1, the worst thing for Gillingham

:03:27.:03:28.

After losing to Bolton last week, Gillingham

:03:29.:03:31.

conceded another four goals this week.

:03:32.:03:32.

Mendez Lang got the first after ten minutes.

:03:33.:03:34.

George Parker equalised seven minutes later.

:03:35.:03:35.

Cody McDonald knocked on the door but was

:03:36.:03:37.

From then on, Rochdale ran the show with Mendez Lang

:03:38.:03:41.

The Gills were reduced to ten men just

:03:42.:03:49.

The fourth goal came right at the end of the game.

:03:50.:03:55.

Charlton got off to a good start with a bit of magic from Ricky

:03:56.:03:58.

Tony Watt came close to making it two a couple of minutes

:03:59.:04:02.

later, however the Blades, the bookies' favourite to win

:04:03.:04:04.

promotion this year, kept their composure and

:04:05.:04:06.

In League 2, a very flat game against

:04:07.:04:16.

The home side took the lead before James Collins balanced the

:04:17.:04:22.

The home side held on for the three points, despite

:04:23.:04:26.

But with nine minutes left, Crawley failed to make

:04:27.:04:29.

A very brisk south-westerly wind at times

:04:30.:04:48.

and an awful lot of low cloud, and some misty

:04:49.:04:50.

Now, it's still going to be mild heading to the start of next week.

:04:51.:04:54.

Mild on Monday but rather wet and windy at times.

:04:55.:04:57.

Some outbreaks of light rain and drizzle.

:04:58.:04:59.

Then it's looking colder, but also brighter

:05:00.:05:00.

with some sunshine from Tuesday onwards.

:05:01.:05:02.

We could even see a touch of night-time frost as we head

:05:03.:05:04.

through the middle part of the week, just in the rural,

:05:05.:05:07.

There will also be some outbreaks of rain, as you can see.

:05:08.:05:13.

Turning rather wet, a damp and grey start to the day tomorrow.

:05:14.:05:16.

Still windy and we start the day on a mild

:05:17.:05:18.

note at around 10-11 C in most places.

:05:19.:05:20.

A bit of a grey start, some low cloud and mist over the downs as

:05:21.:05:24.

Staying quiet blustery through the course of

:05:25.:05:26.

tomorrow and theis rain band will put it to a south-eastward through

:05:27.:05:29.

Then turning much colder on on Monday night.

:05:30.:05:37.

By Tuesday, dry with some sunshine but

:05:38.:05:38.

Not sure I like the sound of that. That's it for now. I will have a

:05:39.:05:52.

late bulletin for you at 22 minutes past ten. From all of us here, do

:05:53.:05:55.

have a good evening. Goodbye for now.

:05:56.:06:07.

Hello. For most of March so far it has felt quite mild and springlike

:06:08.:06:13.

but we are in

:06:14.:06:15.
