Good evening, I'm Jo Kent with the news in the south.

:00:14.:00:15.

Human trafficking is happening around us, but would you recognise

:00:16.:00:22.

That's a question shoppers have been asked in Portsmouth this weekend,

:00:23.:00:26.

by a charity raising awareness of modern day slavery.

:00:27.:00:28.

It's estimated that 20,000 people are trafficked

:00:29.:00:30.

into the UK every year, but it's a very hidden crime.

:00:31.:00:32.

This is Maria, just one of thousands of people working in Britain

:00:33.:00:38.

Brought here by a wealthy family, she was forced to work

:00:39.:00:45.

She managed to escape, but many others can't.

:00:46.:00:53.

Which is why the organisation Stop the Traffik wants us all to be

:00:54.:00:56.

on the lookout for signs of such abuse.

:00:57.:00:58.

It's about equipping the community and the general public

:00:59.:01:00.

with the ability to understand that this does exist.

:01:01.:01:02.

You are looking for anything that looks a bit untoward,

:01:03.:01:05.

people that might seem a bit malnourished,

:01:06.:01:06.

people that feel may be afraid if they are doing agricultural work

:01:07.:01:11.

They might not be wearing the right equipment,

:01:12.:01:16.

they might not be taking breaks, so it's so varied.

:01:17.:01:23.

Activists are using this giant gift box to illustrate the problem,

:01:24.:01:25.

on the outside it looks like a present, people

:01:26.:01:27.

The reality, depicted inside the box, is a different story.

:01:28.:01:36.

This is an important and unacceptable crime

:01:37.:01:38.

that is taking place in our community that we must deal

:01:39.:01:41.

with and it is important that we join together in partnerships.

:01:42.:01:44.

If they're something that gives you concern,

:01:45.:01:47.

we will take that information, treat it confidentially and we

:01:48.:01:49.

It's thought only one in five people living in slavery

:01:50.:01:55.

here are ever discovered, but better public vigilance could be

:01:56.:01:57.

A man has been arrested after a series of armed robberies

:01:58.:02:11.

Two people were assaulted and food, alcohol and cigarettes

:02:12.:02:14.

were stolen from a Co-Op store, a service station and another

:02:15.:02:17.

The 23-year-old suspect was arrested following a car crash

:02:18.:02:21.

on the M3 in Hampshire, and was found to be

:02:22.:02:23.

Hampshire technology company has signed a multi-million pound deal to

:02:24.:02:38.

provide medical monitors Furby Armed Forces.

:02:39.:02:41.

When there's a serious injury in battle, time is rarely

:02:42.:02:43.

on anyone's side but the aptly made Tempus Pro monitor is designed

:02:44.:02:46.

to buy patients and medics precious minutes, even hours that can make

:02:47.:02:49.

In Monty Python terms, it's a machine that goes ping.

:02:50.:02:57.

You can just use it for pulse and blood pressure but it does lots,

:02:58.:03:01.

For example, I can transmit the data about the patient to the next level

:03:02.:03:06.

of care so the hospital is ready to receive that casualty and can see

:03:07.:03:11.

It will be used by all Armed Forces but it's more

:03:12.:03:15.

Medical tools can be plugged in to do things like ultrasound

:03:16.:03:20.

or complex operations and the ?14 million deal

:03:21.:03:22.

with the MoD is not only big for those on the front line but also

:03:23.:03:25.

It is helping sustain 16 high-quality engineering

:03:26.:03:29.

and professional jobs in the Basingstoke and also

:03:30.:03:34.

manufacturing jobs and as a result of this contract and other things

:03:35.:03:38.

we've been doing, we've hired another 20 engineers

:03:39.:03:41.

This will save lives not only because it's got real

:03:42.:03:47.

utility as a bit of kit, but because we are capturing

:03:48.:03:50.

all that data, can analyse it and see if we can

:03:51.:03:52.

Nearly 500 monitors have already been deployed with twice that

:03:53.:03:59.

still on order and given its early success, the Tempus might not

:04:00.:04:01.

remain an exclusively military piece of kit for much longer.

:04:02.:04:05.

Onto football, and Southampton lost 2-1 at Tottenham Hotspur

:04:06.:04:11.

in the Premier League First half goals from Christien Eriksen

:04:12.:04:15.

James Ward-Prowse's reply for Saints in the second half proved

:04:16.:04:22.

Well the rain held off for the 15,000 runners who took

:04:23.:04:29.

part in this morning's Reading Half marathon.

:04:30.:04:31.

This was them setting off and well done to all of them,

:04:32.:04:34.

but it looks like we may see some of that rain tonight

:04:35.:04:36.

After a mild entered the weekend, things are turning colder into the

:04:37.:04:52.

new week. Some rain is moving into the region spreading to all parts

:04:53.:04:59.

during the night and low cloud, mist and fog. A mild night and

:05:05.:05:09.

with heavy breasts of burying at times. -- heavy bursts of rain that

:05:10.:05:19.

time. Once that rain clears through, this guys could turn colder. The

:05:20.:05:29.

chance of some frost rerelease. A brighter day on Tuesday with some

:05:30.:05:34.

sunny spells and their chance of showers and some heavy ones. We are

:05:35.:05:39.

back later at 10:20pm. Have a good evening.

:05:40.:06:09.

Hello. For most of March so far it has felt quite mild and springlike

:06:10.:06:18.

but we are in for a bit of a shock next week as we
