Good evening, I'm Jo Kent. stories on the BBC News Channel.

:00:13.:00:13.

Human trafficking is happening around us, but could you spot

:00:14.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:20.

by a charity raising awareness of modern day slavery.

:00:21.:00:22.

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

:00:23.:00:31.

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

:00:32.:00:36.

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

:00:37.:00:45.

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

:00:46.:00:48.

on the lookout for signs of such abuse.

:00:49.:00:50.

It's about equipping the community and the general public

:00:51.:00:52.

with the ability to understand that this does exist.

:00:53.:00:55.

You are looking for anything that looks a bit untoward,

:00:56.:00:57.

people that might seem a bit malnourished,

:00:58.:01:00.

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

:01:01.:01:04.

They might not be wearing the right equipment,

:01:05.:01:12.

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

:01:13.:01:20.

This is an important and unacceptable crime

:01:21.:01:21.

that is taking place in our community that we must deal

:01:22.:01:24.

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

:01:25.:01:27.

If they're something that gives you concern,

:01:28.:01:28.

we will take that information, treat it confidentially and we

:01:29.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:35.

here are ever discovered, but better public vigilance could be

:01:36.:01:37.

A man has been arrested after a series of armed

:01:38.:01:48.

robberies in Christchurch in Dorset yesterday evening.

:01:49.:01:51.

Two people were assaulted and goods stolen from a Co-Op

:01:52.:01:54.

store, a service station and another convenience shop.

:01:55.:01:56.

The 23-year-old suspect was arrested on the M3 in Hampshire,

:01:57.:01:59.

A technology company in Basingstoke has signed a multi-million pound

:02:00.:02:09.

deal to produce life-saving medical monitors for the Armed Forces.

:02:10.:02:12.

The contract also secures jobs for the firm as Ben Moore reports.

:02:13.:02:19.

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

:02:20.:02:22.

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

:02:23.:02:25.

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

:02:26.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:33.

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

:02:34.:02:36.

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

:02:37.:02:52.

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

:02:53.:02:55.

Medical tools can be plugged in to do things like ultrasound

:02:56.:02:59.

or complex operations and the ?14 million deal

:03:00.:03:02.

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

:03:03.:03:05.

It is helping sustain 16 high-quality engineering

:03:06.:03:08.

and professional jobs in the Basingstoke and also

:03:09.:03:10.

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

:03:11.:03:13.

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

:03:14.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:20.

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

:03:21.:03:22.

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

:03:23.:03:25.

Nearly 500 monitors have already been deployed with twice that

:03:26.:03:32.

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

:03:33.:03:35.

remain an exclusively military piece of kit for much longer.

:03:36.:03:39.

Football now - if you don't want to know the score turn

:03:40.:03:42.

A trip to White Hart Lane ended in defeat for Southampton -

:03:43.:03:46.

Christien Eriksen and Dele Ali put Spurs ahead.

:03:47.:03:50.

James Ward-Prowse's goal was consolation for Saints.

:03:51.:03:52.

You can see the action on Match of the Day two which follows us.

:03:53.:03:58.

15,000 runners took to the streets in Reading this

:03:59.:04:01.

morning, for it's big annual Half marathon.

:04:02.:04:02.

Well the rain held off for them, but looks like it's

:04:03.:04:08.

Here's Dan Downs with our weather forecast.

:04:09.:04:27.

We have showers moving in at the moment and temperatures tonight are

:04:28.:04:34.

no lower than 10 Celsius. A grey start tomorrow with heavy burst of

:04:35.:04:39.

rain at times and we keep the wind. A mild day with temperatures

:04:40.:04:43.

reaching 11 Celsius. Once that rain clears through and the skies break,

:04:44.:04:48.

it will be a cold night down to three Celsius. The risk of some

:04:49.:04:52.

frost and bright with showers on Tuesday. That is it from us this

:04:53.:04:57.

evening. We are backing BBC breakfast, good night.

:04:58.:05:01.
