Good evening, I'm Edward Sault with the news in the south.

:00:08.:00:10.

A 40-year-old woman has died after falling from a third floor

:00:11.:00:13.

It happened at 9.40 this morning at Clarendon House

:00:14.:00:25.

The woman was taken to Southampton General Hospital

:00:26.:00:28.

Meanwhile, a woman in her twenties is in a critical condition

:00:29.:00:32.

after falling from a block of flats in Southampton.

:00:33.:00:34.

The woman was discovered on the ground by police

:00:35.:00:37.

at Mede House in Salisbury Street yesterday morning.

:00:38.:00:39.

Hampshire Police say they're not linking the two

:00:40.:00:41.

A Royal Navy warship based in Portsmouth has rescued 14 sailors

:00:42.:00:47.

after they became stranded in the Atlantic ocean.

:00:48.:00:50.

The Clyde Challenger was returning to the UK when strong winds

:00:51.:00:54.

HMS Dragon was diverted 500 miles and reached the yacht

:00:55.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:03.

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

:01:04.:01:09.

We got hit with a wave which knocked us over.

:01:10.:01:11.

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

:01:12.:01:15.

The crew just did what we are trained to do.

:01:16.:01:18.

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

:01:19.:01:24.

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

:01:25.:01:27.

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

:01:28.:01:31.

A woman from Sussex has been given a 15 month sentence

:01:32.:01:34.

after threatening to kill horses at a yard in Shoreham.

:01:35.:01:38.

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

:01:39.:01:41.

stable owners at Buddies Yard into paying her ?5000.

:01:42.:01:46.

The horses had previously had their tails and manes cut off

:01:47.:01:49.

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

:01:50.:01:54.

Absolutely gobsmacked that she got a prison sentence but very ecstatic

:01:55.:02:01.

We went through a horrendous, absolutely horrendous...

:02:02.:02:08.

The messages we received and everything we went through.

:02:09.:02:13.

Ambitious plans to completely change the structure of local government

:02:14.:02:15.

in Dorset have been condemned by one of the county's most

:02:16.:02:20.

Six of the county's nine local authorities have backed plans

:02:21.:02:24.

to replace the current set-up with two unitary authorities.

:02:25.:02:27.

But the other three councils want to keep things as they are.

:02:28.:02:30.

This is a very crude map of Dorset's current nine council areas,

:02:31.:02:37.

with the economic powerhouse of Bournemouth and Poole keen

:02:38.:02:40.

to merge with their neighbour Christchurch, and the other five

:02:41.:02:43.

councils lumped together to form a separate unitary

:02:44.:02:46.

However, three of the smaller councils have all voted no to being

:02:47.:02:58.

Cheers greeted the merger plans being rejected

:02:59.:03:05.

People want to be able to keep control of their own destiny.

:03:06.:03:12.

Bournemouth and Poole can join together if they want

:03:13.:03:14.

to and meanwhile we have a combined authority which is a strong

:03:15.:03:18.

There will be less councillors so less representatives of people,

:03:19.:03:30.

But it also freezes out diversity of opinion.

:03:31.:03:35.

It works well in Cornwall, Wiltshire.

:03:36.:03:39.

It's not a ground-breaking proposal we've got here.

:03:40.:03:41.

Nine councils cannot be the best optimal arrangement of delivering

:03:42.:03:44.

public service in a county the size of Dorset.

:03:45.:03:49.

The final decision rests with the secretary of state

:03:50.:03:51.

If he says yes, there's calls from Greens, Lib Dems and Ukip

:03:52.:03:56.

Now for a look at the weather with Jennifer Bartram.

:03:57.:04:08.

Some cloud and showers through the first part of this

:04:09.:04:12.

We will see some clear spells first thing on Monday morning.

:04:13.:04:17.

And the temperatures down to around three or four degrees,

:04:18.:04:19.

That wind is going to be a feature through Monday.

:04:20.:04:24.

We should see plenty of dry and fine weather through the morning,

:04:25.:04:27.

some sunshine coming through after that cold

:04:28.:04:28.

But that breeze is really going to take the edge

:04:29.:04:33.

Around nine or 10 degrees on the thermometer,

:04:34.:04:36.

Through the rest of the week, it stays mild, with a few

:04:37.:04:40.

Our next updates are in BBC Breakfast.

:04:41.:04:49.

I'm sure most of us are glad to see the back of this weekend. It's been

:04:50.:05:15.

cold, bleak and at times wintry. It provided some beautiful weather

:05:16.:05:19.

Watchers photos, like Sheffield earlier today. I suspect some of the

:05:20.:05:23.

lying snow will be blown around by strong winds starting to develop.

:05:24.:05:29.

The odd spot of drizzle into the far

:05:30.:05:30.
