Good evening, I'm Edward Sault. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time

:00:00.:00:13.

A Royal Navy warship based in Portsmouth has rescued 14 sailors

:00:14.:00:16.

after they became stranded in the Atlantic ocean.

:00:17.:00:19.

The Clyde Challenger was returning to the UK and got caught up

:00:20.:00:22.

in strong winds and heavy seas which snapped the mast.

:00:23.:00:26.

HMS Dragon was diverted 500 miles and reached the yacht

:00:27.:00:29.

She provided what's been described as "life-saving

:00:30.:00:34.

assistance" to the 14 sailors - 13 of whom were British.

:00:35.:00:39.

We got hit with a wave which knocked us over.

:00:40.:00:42.

Basically the top of the mast hit the water and snapped.

:00:43.:00:46.

The crew just did what we are trained to do.

:00:47.:00:49.

It was quite a big swell so every time the boat went away,

:00:50.:00:54.

we'd lose sight of it before we could see what was going

:00:55.:00:57.

on with our own boat, so it was really quite rough.

:00:58.:01:01.

A woman in her twenties is in a critical condition

:01:02.:01:04.

after falling from the third floor of a block of flats in Southampton.

:01:05.:01:07.

It happened shortly after 10.45 yesterday morning

:01:08.:01:10.

The woman was discovered on the ground by police

:01:11.:01:14.

She was taken to Southampton General Hospital and officers are appealing

:01:15.:01:19.

for anyone who witnessed what happened.

:01:20.:01:22.

A woman from Sussex has been given a 15-month sentence

:01:23.:01:25.

after threatening to kill horses at a yard in Shoreham.

:01:26.:01:28.

Kirsty Geoghegan, who's 25 and from Hove, tried to blackmail

:01:29.:01:32.

stable owners at Buddies Yard into paying her ?5,000.

:01:33.:01:36.

The horses had previously had their tails and manes cut off

:01:37.:01:39.

The stable owners say they're relieved the judge handed out

:01:40.:01:43.

Absolutely gobsmacked that she got a prison sentence but very ecstatic

:01:44.:01:58.

that justice has been served. We went through a horrendous,

:01:59.:02:03.

absolutely horrendous... The messages we receive it and

:02:04.:02:04.

everything we went through. Ambitious plans to completely change

:02:05.:02:06.

the structure of local government in Dorset have been condemned by one

:02:07.:02:08.

of the county's most Six of the county's nine local

:02:09.:02:11.

authorities have backed plans to replace the current set-up

:02:12.:02:14.

with two unitary authorities, but the other three councils

:02:15.:02:16.

want to keep things as they are. This is a very crude map of Dorset's

:02:17.:02:30.

current nine council areas with the economic powerhouse of Bournemouth

:02:31.:02:34.

and pot clean to merge with Christchurch and the other five

:02:35.:02:39.

councils locked together to form a separate military authority in the

:02:40.:02:49.

West. Recently three of the smaller councils have all voted no to being

:02:50.:02:55.

merged with their neighbours. Cheers greeted the merger plans being

:02:56.:03:00.

rejected by Christchurch councillors. It's not democratic.

:03:01.:03:05.

People want to keep control of their own destiny. Bournemouth and Paul

:03:06.:03:09.

can join together if they want to and meanwhile we have a combined

:03:10.:03:14.

authority which is a strong business voice for Dorset. In Purbeck the

:03:15.:03:19.

council vote on the mergers were split 11 - 11, the plans rejected by

:03:20.:03:25.

the casting vote. It is a bad idea. The bigger councils will get all the

:03:26.:03:29.

money and we will not get anything. Do mergers work? Democratically

:03:30.:03:36.

there will be less councillors so less representatives of people,

:03:37.:03:43.

perhaps a conservative stranglehold. This is not rocket science. It works

:03:44.:03:49.

well in Cornwall, Wiltshire. Nine councils cannot be the best optimum

:03:50.:03:53.

arrangement of delivering public service in accountancy the size of

:03:54.:03:59.

Dorset. The final decision rests with the secretary of state for

:04:00.:04:04.

communities and government. There is cause for referendum.

:04:05.:04:06.

Football and Southampton got their first points away

:04:07.:04:09.

from home in 2017 as they beat Sunderland 4-0 yesterday.

:04:10.:04:11.

Manolo Gabbiadini scored twice in his second

:04:12.:04:14.

Southampton appearance - his first goal came

:04:15.:04:16.

The Italian scored again just before the break with a brilliant turn

:04:17.:04:22.

It was perfect preparation for their next game -

:04:23.:04:28.

the League Cup final against Manchester United

:04:29.:04:30.

Let's get the weather forecast. Quite a cloudy night too, with a few

:04:31.:04:45.

showers as well. The showers will start to ease off as we had through

:04:46.:04:50.

the night. The cloud will break up, so clear skies to be had later on,

:04:51.:04:57.

temperatures of three or 4 degrees. Quite a strong easterly wind and

:04:58.:05:01.

that will make things feel quite cold as we had through Monday

:05:02.:05:04.

despite the fact we will see plenty of dry and find weather. The

:05:05.:05:10.

sunshine finally making an appearance. Temperatures around nine

:05:11.:05:16.

or 10 Celsius. But add on the strength of the easterly wind and it

:05:17.:05:20.

will feel cold. Through the rest of the week, there are some showers to

:05:21.:05:25.

take us into Tuesday. They will ease off and then we will see Cryer,

:05:26.:05:29.

brighter weather with highs of 10 degrees. I am back at 11:20pm. Have

:05:30.:05:36.

a lovely evening. Goodbye. Good evening, dull, grey, cold,

:05:37.:06:14.

miserable. And that's just me! The weather hasn't been great leader for

:06:15.:06:19.

most of us, it will be chilly out there with this nagging easterly

:06:20.:06:24.

breeze, wetter weather for Northern Ireland, by the end of the night

:06:25.:06:27.

most of the dampness across parts of Eastern Scotland and North East

:06:28.:06:31.

England, most of the high ground Luus will have faded away as well.

:06:32.:06:34.

But not
