Good evening. stories on the BBC News Channel.

:00:10.:00:11.

Six people have been taken to hospital -

:00:12.:00:13.

It follows a collision between a car and pedestrians

:00:14.:00:16.

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

:00:17.:00:23.

The seriously injured have been taken to a hospital in Brighton.

:00:24.:00:30.

Schools in Medway are struggling to recruit and retain teachers

:00:31.:00:37.

and are having to look overseas to fill empty places.

:00:38.:00:40.

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

:00:41.:00:42.

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

:00:43.:00:55.

feat in an area where finding and keeping teachers is a

:00:56.:00:58.

For one, neighbouring London can tempt them away with

:00:59.:01:01.

enhanced salaries but there's another hurdle.

:01:02.:01:03.

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

:01:04.:01:05.

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

:01:06.:01:08.

I think colleagues are working really,

:01:09.:01:14.

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

:01:15.:01:16.

are improving and we expect that to continue.

:01:17.:01:20.

Medway Council is looking as far afield as South Africa and

:01:21.:01:22.

It's holding a recruitment fair on Wednesday.

:01:23.:01:25.

Some say the Government is doing its bit.

:01:26.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:34.

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

:01:35.:01:39.

different political parties, has been a stability in a number

:01:40.:01:41.

But Government figures show, over the last few years,

:01:42.:01:47.

the numbers leaving the profession have gone up while

:01:48.:01:49.

recruitment targets have been consistently missed.

:01:50.:01:54.

The announcement of ?320 million more

:01:55.:01:57.

for free schools has missed the point, say some.

:01:58.:01:59.

I've always supported good schools expanding.

:02:00.:02:01.

I think I'd much rather see people putting

:02:02.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:08.

The national union of teachers blames workload for so

:02:09.:02:17.

One third quit within five years of joining.

:02:18.:02:26.

A man from Seaford is fighting for his life following a road

:02:27.:02:29.

The 23-year-old was riding a motorcycle in Station road

:02:30.:02:36.

in Berwick when he collided with a Land Rover.

:02:37.:02:38.

The motorcyclist was taken to the Royal Sussex

:02:39.:02:42.

The driver of the car was not injured.

:02:43.:02:47.

Kent Police have charged two men after a taxi driver was allegedly

:02:48.:02:50.

threatened and assaulted by two passengers.

:02:51.:02:52.

Two men are reported to have prevented

:02:53.:02:56.

the driver from stopping at Ebbsfleet railway station.

:02:57.:02:58.

The men have been charged with racially aggravated assault

:02:59.:03:01.

Both will appear before Medway Magistrates' Court tomorrow.

:03:02.:03:11.

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

:03:12.:03:14.

Ben Fish battled the windy conditions

:03:15.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:27.

The finish is very tough in that headwind.

:03:28.:03:30.

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

:03:31.:03:33.

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

:03:34.:03:37.

If the conditions were like last week, I

:03:38.:03:39.

But I knew going in that it would be difficult.

:03:40.:03:43.

Now to Elizabeth Rizzini with the weather.

:03:44.:03:51.

a lot of low cloud, and very little in the way of brightness.

:03:52.:03:59.

We also saw misty and murky conditions on the south coast, too.

:04:00.:04:02.

Overnight tonight, the air is still mild and not dropping

:04:03.:04:04.

These outbreaks of rain mostly light and patchy

:04:05.:04:08.

through the night, sticking around into tomorrow's rush hour.

:04:09.:04:10.

This rain band will put it to a south-eastwards through

:04:11.:04:17.

Top temperatures tomorrow still mild, 12-13 C.

:04:18.:04:21.

Turning significantly colder on on Monday night.

:04:22.:04:23.

Chilly on Tuesday, but dry with some sunshine.

:04:24.:04:42.

That's what we all want to see. Now, don't forget, you can keep

:04:43.:04:49.

up-to-date with all the latest news, features and whether by logging onto

:04:50.:04:55.

:04:56.:04:59.
