Coming up: his administration.

:00:00.:00:00.

A second day of searching for a man missing since an explosion

:00:00.:00:07.

Also: their children were born with heart problems,

:00:08.:00:14.

now two mothers want to get defibrilators into all

:00:15.:00:17.

And left disabled by a brain injury - how music has enabled this man

:00:18.:00:23.

Police have identified the man they believe died in Tuesday's

:00:24.:00:36.

explosion at a block of flats in Oxford.

:00:37.:00:39.

48-year-old Guido Schuette is still unaccounted for

:00:40.:00:42.

Emergency crews have spent a second day searching the rubble

:00:43.:00:46.

of the collapsed flats looking for him.

:00:47.:00:49.

As many as 20 people have been left homeless after the incident.

:00:50.:00:52.

David Lumb has spent the day at the scene

:00:53.:00:55.

More than 60 members of the emergency services

:00:56.:01:02.

Today, police revealed the identity of the man they feared

:01:03.:01:08.

Our strong hypothesis is that Guido died in the fire

:01:09.:01:16.

and we are continuing to offer support to his family.

:01:17.:01:20.

Reminders of the commotion that shook this community

:01:21.:01:22.

Shards of glass about 30m from the blast.

:01:23.:01:29.

And if it wasn't tough enough already, more complications.

:01:30.:01:33.

Firefighters say their search is being delayed because part

:01:34.:01:36.

Because that particular part has become more unsafe we've had to pull

:01:37.:01:42.

back from that area and it's probably likely we'll have

:01:43.:01:45.

to bring in mechanical aid like a digger or something.

:01:46.:01:48.

40 home owners were evacuated following the blast.

:01:49.:01:51.

Only half of them have been able to return home.

:01:52.:01:54.

I want to get my charger for my phone.

:01:55.:01:57.

They won't let me go anywhere near because of the danger.

:01:58.:02:01.

The homes here in Gibbs Crescent are all one-bedroomed flats

:02:02.:02:04.

and we understand three have been completeded gutted and four others

:02:05.:02:07.

Those that have been allowed to go back, are still coming to terms

:02:08.:02:14.

It wasn't a bang, it was like boom, just that echoed.

:02:15.:02:20.

I thought somebody had fell down the stairs

:02:21.:02:22.

Me and my partner were sitting down watching TV.

:02:23.:02:25.

When the explosion happened the chair did lift up.

:02:26.:02:29.

I ran out, I thought the whole Crescent was going to go.

:02:30.:02:44.

Police and fire crews were called to the Nuffield Hospital

:02:45.:02:46.

in Headington after a chemical incident at the swimming pool there.

:02:47.:02:49.

Two members of staff, who had been mixing chemicals,

:02:50.:02:52.

were treated after inhaling "a chorine-type" gas

:02:53.:02:55.

The front entrance to the hospital was sealed off

:02:56.:02:59.

while emergency services made the area safe,

:03:00.:03:02.

There's been no impact on patient care.

:03:03.:03:05.

There's been no impact at all on patient processes in the hospital.

:03:06.:03:14.

Police in Nuneham Courtenay have spent the day investigating part

:03:15.:03:16.

of the A4074 after a man was found critically injured

:03:17.:03:20.

Officers shut the A4074 between the Goldenballs

:03:21.:03:24.

and Berinsfield roundabouts for most of the day.

:03:25.:03:26.

The 20-year-old man from Oxford was discovered on Valentines day.

:03:27.:03:29.

It's thought he was a pedestrian who was hit by a car.

:03:30.:03:32.

He's still being treated in hospital.

:03:33.:03:36.

Two mothers from Swindon have launched a campaign to get

:03:37.:03:39.

life-saving heart defibrillators installed in all of

:03:40.:03:41.

Kayleigh Headland and Sonia Dykes both have children with potentially

:03:42.:03:46.

They've already raised enough money for a unit at one primary school

:03:47.:03:51.

but there are dozens more on their list.

:03:52.:03:53.

Katharine DaCosta has been to meet them.

:03:54.:04:01.

Two of Sonia Dykes' children suffer from the same rare

:04:02.:04:04.

Both have implanted mini defibrillators

:04:05.:04:09.

Tyrone was left badly brain damaged after he suffered a cardiac

:04:10.:04:14.

A decade later Sonia went through the same trauma

:04:15.:04:19.

I found her in the bedroom, on the floor, lifeless.

:04:20.:04:26.

My son, who was 16 at the time, took over CPR while I basically broke

:04:27.:04:32.

down in the corner because I just couldn't cope.

:04:33.:04:37.

you go through that with one child but to go through that twice

:04:38.:04:42.

Kayleigh got in touch with Sonia when her daughter

:04:43.:04:49.

Ellie-Mai was just three months' old when she stopped breathing.

:04:50.:04:55.

Doctors later discovered she had a hole in her heart.

:04:56.:04:59.

When I looked down, she was lifeless and blue

:05:00.:05:02.

people on the ambulance they told me to lay her down on the floor with no

:05:03.:05:08.

When he lay her down, she started to go grey and her

:05:09.:05:13.

Then they just came in and took one look at her and

:05:14.:05:18.

just - yeah, you need to get to hospital.

:05:19.:05:21.

All her organs, everything was shutting down in her body.

:05:22.:05:23.

Now the mums have set up the Swindon Heart Safe campaign.

:05:24.:05:27.

They've already raised enough money to buy a defibrillator

:05:28.:05:29.

for Beechcroft Infant school and plan to continue

:05:30.:05:32.

until all the town's schools are equipped.

:05:33.:05:36.

Because there are a number of children and members of staff as

:05:37.:05:40.

well that may have these underlying conditions that we don't know about.

:05:41.:05:43.

Obviously having the equipment on site means there are enough people

:05:44.:05:46.

trained up and ready to deal with these problems

:05:47.:05:49.

Their parents hope one day all schools and nurseries will be

:05:50.:05:56.

Oxford's only gymnastics club has been told it

:05:57.:06:05.

will lose its new home after a planning

:06:06.:06:07.

Cherwell Gymnastics has a four-year waiting list.

:06:08.:06:12.

It was originally given permission to move into a warehouse

:06:13.:06:14.

The club has also spent around ?20,000 converting

:06:15.:06:19.

the unit at Ashville Way but councillors have now voted

:06:20.:06:21.

unanimously to reject the application to stay.

:06:22.:06:24.

They previously said the premises were registered as a key

:06:25.:06:26.

Music has enabled a man in Aylesbury who suffered a brain injury

:06:27.:06:33.

Eric Aldridge was left disabled after he fell down

:06:34.:06:38.

He believes one-to-one music therapy sessions run by the charity Headway

:06:39.:06:44.

Do you know I've never played like that

:06:45.:06:57.

A trip on the stairs changed 73-year-old Eric's life forever.

:06:58.:07:06.

Previously fit and healthy and walking four miles a day, Eric

:07:07.:07:13.

He's reliant on a wheelchair, can't drive, has poor eyesight

:07:14.:07:20.

His left hand was not functioning and he was very upset about it.

:07:21.:07:28.

He was almost crying and complaining every week

:07:29.:07:31.

like you can see, he is playing, left-hand, right-handed

:07:32.:07:38.

Eric and his family believe his recovery is down to music therapy.

:07:39.:07:48.

It has caused quite a lot of damage to him but he is beginning

:07:49.:07:53.

A lot to do with music, which he adores.

:07:54.:08:01.

Music therapy's one of a range of creative therapies provided

:08:02.:08:07.

We have other projects as well - art, photography.

:08:08.:08:14.

Just to give them an interest, just to try to encourage them to use

:08:15.:08:17.

the areas that are underused or have been injured.

:08:18.:08:24.

Academics at Oxford University say the healing power of music should

:08:25.:08:29.

There's been some remarkable work done with people who were in a coma

:08:30.:08:35.

or in what is called a vegetative state, where music therapists have

:08:36.:08:40.

worked with those people over long periods of time,

:08:41.:08:42.

sometimes sitting and playing music to them, even when they don't seem

:08:43.:08:45.

to be responsive and little by little, some of those

:08:46.:08:49.

people have emerged from their vegetative

:08:50.:08:51.

It's often been reported that people did hear all those things

:08:52.:08:56.

going on and actually found them very important and very powerful.

:08:57.:08:59.

1,500 people in Aylesbury Vale alone have an acquired brain injury

:09:00.:09:05.

but few younger sufferers are using local support services.

:09:06.:09:09.

Headway are encouraging more people to try out music therapy in the hope

:09:10.:09:13.

The weather forecast is on the way - Alexis has the details for tonight

:09:14.:09:26.

We're back tomorrow morning in BBC Breakfast.

:09:27.:09:28.

Through this evening we saw increasing cloud, and overnight

:09:29.:09:35.

tonight there is the possibility of the odd spot of rain, but it

:09:36.:09:38.

should gradually ease during the early hours of the morning,

:09:39.:09:41.

We may have one or two mist and fog patches, particularly down

:09:42.:09:46.

Temperatures tonight dropping to around five or six Celsius.

:09:47.:09:52.

Wind will be fairly light, and will remain so tomorrow.

:09:53.:09:55.

After a misty and murky start, it is an

:09:56.:09:57.

improving picture, slightly more cloud than today, but we will see

:09:58.:10:01.

some sunny spells and it will be feeling pleasant in the sunshine.

:10:02.:10:05.

The wind is fairly light for the west and the south-west.

:10:06.:10:11.

A milder day tomorrow and a mild night to come tomorrow night.

:10:12.:10:14.

To Saturday, we are expecting a cloudy start, maybe

:10:15.:10:18.

some mist and fog patches first thing.

:10:19.:10:20.

And rain on Saturday evening, but the bulk of Saturday daytime

:10:21.:10:25.

should be mainly dry, fair amount of cloud to start

:10:26.:10:28.

with, but brightening up through the afternoon.

:10:29.:10:30.

This weather front will arrive by the evening.

:10:31.:10:33.

That'll produce some rain through Saturday night into the

:10:34.:10:36.

early hours of Sunday, so that may well start on a damp

:10:37.:10:40.

note in places but we are hoping it's going to dry

:10:41.:10:43.

Tomorrow, after a cloudy start, we will see some

:10:44.:10:50.

The possibility of a lot of cloud to start Saturday, but a lot of

:10:51.:10:56.

brighter spells will break through later.

:10:57.:10:57.

A wet start to Sunday, but drying out later on.

:10:58.:11:02.

forthcoming weekend. Here is Nick Miller with a resume of the National

:11:03.:11:06.

weather
