He came second in the Vendee Globe - but in this town he is the number

Absolute determination. Not giving up. It's just the most amazing

endeavour. With Alex Kane England all the time there is just such

:01:41.:01:49.

excitement. As he says, the objective now is to put together a

The ferry service between Hythe and Southampton has been

:02:11.:02:12.

Hampshire County council's agreed to pay ?50,000

:02:13.:02:19.

in emergency funding for a replacement ferry to be

:02:20.:02:21.

chartered while the main ferry has a refit.

:02:22.:02:23.

The authority's also paid a subsidy to the privately run business

:02:24.:02:26.

The first ever female Dean of Winchester has been installed

:02:27.:02:29.

at a special service at Winchester Cathedral

:02:30.:02:31.

The Very Reverend Catherine Ogle began her ministry began

:02:35.:02:37.

a priest in the Church of England in 1994.

:02:38.:02:39.

She told South Today she wants the church to be open to everyone.

:02:40.:02:48.

It's such a wonderful experience, it's almost overwhelming, because I

:02:49.:02:58.

am deeply aware of the great history of this place and the 38th Dean of

:02:59.:03:04.

Winchester, which is a remarkable inheritance, and the cathedral today

:03:05.:03:07.

has been fool of worship and music and affection and lots of people

:03:08.:03:12.

happy to be together to come today. Wonderful.

:03:13.:03:12.

Onto football, and Southampton, with only one win in their last

:03:13.:03:16.

seven Premier League games, are hoping to improve that record

:03:17.:03:19.

After lots of Sunderland pressure, the transfer window signing from

:03:20.:03:33.

Napoli put them ahead, and he has just got a second, so Southampton

:03:34.:03:40.

lead 2-0 early in the second half. Brighton are currently 2-0 up.

:03:41.:03:48.

Swindon won a goal down at half-time and no goals between Oxford United

:03:49.:03:50.

and MK Dons. And in League Two, a goal

:03:51.:03:54.

from Matt Clarke after just two minutes gave Pompey the half time

:03:55.:03:57.

lead against Accrington Stanley. Good even in. Sticking with the

:03:58.:04:09.

wintry feel as you move through the rest of this weekend, plenty of

:04:10.:04:12.

cloud around and a few outbreaks of rain and there could be something

:04:13.:04:16.

wintry in the mix as the temperature falls into an overnight low of

:04:17.:04:20.

between one and three. Eat cold start to the day with plenty of

:04:21.:04:25.

clouds around and it could be wintry as well of higher ground but some

:04:26.:04:30.

breaks, the temperature reaching a maximum 5-6 with the easterly breeze

:04:31.:04:35.

taking the edge. Another cloudy day with outbreaks of rain but it looks

:04:36.:04:38.

like we will see something more springlike by the time you get to

:04:39.:04:41.

Monday, the dry and bright with wind as well.

:04:42.:04:43.

Before we go just a reminder that our current affairs programme

:04:44.:04:45.

the Sunday Politics is on at 11 o'clock tomorrow here on BBC One -

:04:46.:04:49.

and council reorganisation in Dorset is among the topics under

:04:50.:04:51.

Good afternoon. An afternoon to snuggle up in front of the telly and

:04:52.:05:19.

watch some rugby. It's been a cold winter's day. Not just for humans.

:05:20.:05:26.

This shot was taken earlier. There was some sunshine in Scotland, here

:05:27.:05:29.

a beautiful afternoon. That was the expectation for most. It's bleak out

:05:30.:05:35.

there. A mixture of rain and snow on the radar. You have to go a long way

:05:36.:05:39.

up the hills to find settling snow. Into the evening and temperatures

:05:40.:05:42.

begin to fall again, we could see some of the white stuff turning up

:05:43.:05:46.

again at lower levels across eastern Counties of England and quite a lot

:05:47.:05:50.

of snow piling up over the Pennines in particular on a brisk wind, it is

:05:51.:05:54.

going to feel cold wherever you are with temperatures hovering close to

:05:55.:05:59.

freezing. Tomorrow another raw feeling day.

:06:00.:06:04.

Further rain, sleet and snow. Most of the snow focussed over the Peaks

:06:05.:06:10.

and Pennines. Rain and sleet

:06:11.:06:11.
