Tonight, as we go on air, major disruption after the discovery

People have been moved out of the area after grenades were found

:00:00.:00:17.

during roadworks in Plymouth. We'll have the latest

live from the scene. Also tonight - concerns

over the psychological In the most worrying cases,

on the Isles of Scilly - an inquest takes a dramatic turn

after hearing new evidence. And football fever pitch,

as the Green Army gear up to grab One of the main routes into Plymouth

:00:46.:00:48.

:00:49.:01:14.

were dug up at roadworks, and Businesses nearby have been

evacuated after the workers dug up Staff and customers

at Crownhill Retail Park have been told to leave by police officers

:01:20.:01:24.

after the cordon was set up on Tavistock Road,

:01:25.:01:29.

near the turn-off Within the last half an hour, some

:01:30.:01:39.

of the devices have been blown up. Our reporter is at the scene.

:01:40.:01:43.

Tavistock Road has been reopened in the last few moments. It follows

:01:44.:01:50.

after around 2:30pm this afternoon, when police and Fire Service were

:01:51.:01:54.

called out here to Tavistock Road outside the Pizza Hut, where a road

:01:55.:01:58.

workers who were involved in 15 months' worth of improvements had

:01:59.:02:03.

dug up eight white phosphorous grenades in a trench down the middle

:02:04.:02:07.

of the road. A deep and muddy trench at the height of a man, and at

:02:08.:02:14.

5:50pm this evening, we heard a short, sharp, loud bang, a loud

:02:15.:02:20.

site, and we saw a plume of smoke and dust, it rocketed up into the

:02:21.:02:22.

sky and we believe that was the Royal Navy's explosive ordnance

:02:23.:02:29.

disposal team exploding the devices and making the area safe. The cord

and has been in place for hours and the motorists were on diversion, so

:02:34.:02:37.

congestion has been bad this evening. As you see behind me, the

:02:38.:02:42.

cars are now blowing on Tavistock Road and the area is being reopened

:02:43.:02:47.

to the public. -- the traffic is flowing now.

:02:48.:02:49.

Welcome to the age of social media - websites and applications enabling

:02:50.:02:52.

users to create and share content, views, photographs and to social

:02:53.:02:54.

A digital age which can be all-consuming, something

:02:55.:03:00.

raising the eyebrows of child protection experts.

:03:01.:03:04.

They are calling for more research into the psychological impact

:03:05.:03:07.

It comes as a father from west Cornwall has launched a petition

:03:08.:03:13.

calling for an end to what he calls "torture" from a feature on a social

:03:14.:03:17.

So what is Snapchat, and how is it affecting everyday

:03:18.:03:23.

life for not only youngsters but adults as well?

:03:24.:03:28.

With an explanation, here's Tamsin Melville.

:03:29.:03:31.

millions of us of all ages are constantly

:03:32.:03:35.

checking our social media, getting what experts say

:03:36.:03:38.

is like a feel-good hit of dopamine to our brains each time

:03:39.:03:41.

and one dad from Cornwall is taking a stand.

:03:42.:03:48.

Streaks have become mini relationships in kids' eyes,

:03:49.:03:50.

with all the ups and downs, and to lose one

:03:51.:03:53.

He's launched a petition about what he calls a dangerously

:03:54.:03:57.

addictive feature called "streaks" on a social media app

:03:58.:04:00.

called Snapchat, which he says is making his teenager withdrawn.

:04:01.:04:05.

Snapchat sends photos and videos to friends that disappear

:04:06.:04:08.

Streaks measure daily contact with friends.

:04:09.:04:11.

It has become very toxic for teenagers particularly,

:04:12.:04:18.

because it pushes their buttons more so than older people.

:04:19.:04:23.

We don't have the same need to be accepted.

:04:24.:04:27.

Teenagers are growing, they are learning, they

:04:28.:04:28.

learning how to be accepted socially and this has just managed to get

:04:29.:04:32.

straight into that social acceptance button and it pushes it every time.

:04:33.:04:41.

Snapchat did not want to comment on the petition, but it says it has

:04:42.:04:44.

a Trust Safety Team that responds to reports and concerns.

:04:45.:04:48.

Experts say there is an increase year-on-year of young people

:04:49.:04:50.

reporting issues with all social media.

:04:51.:04:54.

In the most extreme cases, constant exposure online and

:04:55.:04:57.

young people feeling that pressure to be online constantly can cause

:04:58.:05:02.

In the most worrying cases, we're hearing from children

:05:03.:05:09.

who really talk to us about feeling suicidal as a result

:05:10.:05:12.

of seeing things, and that constant pressure online.

:05:13.:05:14.

Johnny is just hoping that his petition helps raise

:05:15.:05:17.

awareness of what's a much wider issue.

:05:18.:05:18.

Andy Phippen is a professor at Plymouth University who studies

:05:19.:05:26.

children and digital and social media, he is with us now.

:05:27.:05:29.

Let's talk about the impact potentially that too much social

:05:30.:05:32.

What does the research tell us so far about the potential

:05:33.:05:38.

The answer is there is very little research out there.

:05:39.:05:42.

There are probably two or three people in the country that look

:05:43.:05:45.

The focus has very much been on predatory behaviour and harm

:05:46.:05:48.

So when we talk about internet safety it is about making sure

:05:49.:05:52.

The impacts on mental health are still very poorly understood,

:05:53.:05:56.

and I think they have to be studied in a long-term way.

:05:57.:05:59.

But the genie is out of the bottle - social media is everywhere.

:06:00.:06:02.

Everyone wants to be part of social media,

:06:03.:06:04.

so how do parents manage it and not completely ban their

:06:05.:06:08.

I think, in terms of parents, I think the main thing is to start

:06:09.:06:13.

the conversations early - to have conversations that do not

:06:14.:06:17.

So I have been reading the paper and I am really worried about this,

:06:18.:06:21.

therefore I am going to be anxious about it...

:06:22.:06:24.

Just talk to them about it so they know that if issues arise

:06:25.:06:27.

What do the social media platforms and operators

:06:28.:06:30.

How much do they recognise that what they are doing

:06:31.:06:35.

can become addictive, and put this great pressure on young

:06:36.:06:39.

people to try to get as many likes or friends as possible

:06:40.:06:42.

If you were to ask me about five years ago,

:06:43.:06:48.

I would say that the social media companies aren't doing anything.

:06:49.:06:51.

I think these days they are responding to the fact

:06:52.:06:53.

that there can be negativity as well as positive experiences

:06:54.:06:55.

on social media, that it's not something you can just switch off,

:06:56.:06:58.

and if it wasn't Snapchat, it would be musical.ly,

:06:59.:07:00.

and if it wasn't msical.ly, it would be Twitter.

:07:01.:07:03.

If it wasn't Twitter it would be Instagram.

:07:04.:07:05.

All of these things have similar social aspects to them,

:07:06.:07:07.

and those social aspects are just that.

:07:08.:07:10.

It's a bit like, you know, years ago, it is like going to the pub,

:07:11.:07:13.

or I get invited to a party and someone else hasn't been invited

:07:14.:07:16.

to the party and that means I'm more popular than them.

:07:17.:07:19.

You get to the root causes and it is not about technology but

:07:20.:07:22.

Research is still at its early stages, then, on what effect it

:07:23.:07:27.

might have on mental health, but what are your

:07:28.:07:29.

If this trend continues, where youngsters increasingly have

:07:30.:07:34.

this pressure to be popular on social media platforms,

:07:35.:07:38.

further down the line, what sort of effect do you think

:07:39.:07:41.

I think it could be a major public health crisis.

:07:42.:07:45.

I think it's something we can't stick our heads in the sand and hope

:07:46.:07:49.

the platform providers are going to solve.

:07:50.:07:50.

It's something where we all have to be involved

:07:51.:07:53.

in the conversation around it and admit our own feelings.

:07:54.:07:58.

OK, Professor Andy Phippen, thank you very much indeed.

:07:59.:08:02.

There was a dramatic twist today at the inquest into the death

:08:03.:08:05.

of 23-year-old Josh Clayton, whose body was found

:08:06.:08:07.

The jury heard apparently new evidence from one

:08:08.:08:11.

of the witnesses and were then sent home early in order for the legal

:08:12.:08:14.

Lucie Fisher has been at Plymouth Coroner's Court and joins us now.

:08:15.:08:21.

Leroy Thomas, arriving at court this morning to give evidence.

:08:22.:08:23.

He was working as a painter and decorator on the island

:08:24.:08:26.

at the time of Josh's disappearance, and along with other locals,

:08:27.:08:29.

went to the party where Josh was last seen alive.

:08:30.:08:32.

He'd been involved in an altercation there.

:08:33.:08:34.

In front of the jury today, he made a number

:08:35.:08:36.

He said he saw someone he believes to be Josh outside of the party,

:08:37.:08:45.

having an argument with two or three Polish or Hungarian workers.

:08:46.:08:49.

He said he heard him ranting and raving that he had had enough

:08:50.:08:52.

and that he was going to kill himself.

:08:53.:08:55.

Leroy then said that he left at 2:30am to 3am in the morning,

:08:56.:08:59.

but on the way back had an intuition that something was not

:09:00.:09:01.

right, and he went back to check on the young lad

:09:02.:09:04.

He then said that he could not find him.

:09:05.:09:11.

Josh's disappearance sparked a ten-day search,

:09:12.:09:12.

the largest ever seen on the islands.

:09:13.:09:14.

There were no signs of injury, no signs of drowning.

:09:15.:09:19.

There were no traces of drugs in his system.

:09:20.:09:22.

He had consumed alcohol equivalent to two and a half

:09:23.:09:24.

times the legal limit, and a bloodstained shirt

:09:25.:09:28.

he was wearing had not been analysed as it was not being treated

:09:29.:09:31.

Now brief look at other news in the South West tonight:

:09:32.:09:39.

The Criminal Cases Review Commission has found that the trial

:09:40.:09:43.

of Royal Marine Alexander Blackman was mishandled.

:09:44.:09:44.

Blackman is accused of murdering a wounded Taliban fighter.

:09:45.:09:52.

The conviction could be quashed according to reports in the

about the importance of school food. Nutritious and healthy meals help

children to concentrate, and hopefully they will lead

healthier lives in the future. So school chefs like

:13:56.:13:58.

it's rice with a funny taste, because it does resemble

:13:59.:14:05.

very much like rice. Normally she cooks for 130 children

:14:06.:14:09.

each day, but the competition means she has to make a main meal

:14:10.:14:14.

and dessert for 11-year-olds in 90 minutes, and it must

it's the pupils who really count. Cooking doesn't get

tougher than this. It had a really mild

sort of warmth to it, and it was nice because it

wasn't to spicy. And then the pudding was really

nice because it sort of, kind of, cooled it down,

because it's quite warm. It's quite spicy but the flatbread

cooled down a bit, and the textures went well together and all

BBC Spotlight, Yealmpton. The National Trust property

:15:33.:15:36.

Killerton House is appealing to the public to help

:15:37.:15:37.

with its leaking roof. The building, which houses

:15:38.:15:41.

the Trust's largest costume collection, needs urgent repairs

:15:42.:15:44.

to keep the rain out. As Johnny Rutherford has found out,

:15:45.:15:46.

the repair bill will be ?100,000. Killerton House near Exeter is an

:15:47.:16:02.

18th-century mansion costing 6400 acres. It houses the largest

:16:03.:16:08.

National Trust costume collection in the country but at the moment they

:16:09.:16:12.

are under wraps to protect them from damage.

:16:13.:16:17.

This is a flat roof and it is leaking substantially. The water is

:16:18.:16:20.

coming in through the roof and damaging the internal fabric of the

:16:21.:16:23.

building as well as the exterior fabric. We have been really

:16:24.:16:27.

fortunate to receive a substantial legacy from one of building 's

:16:28.:16:32.

long-standing volunteers Lauren Marshall.

:16:33.:16:36.

That money has helped to get the project started but this don't need

:16:37.:16:40.

to raise ?100,000. Goal there is a lot of painting to be done, we're

:16:41.:16:45.

starting the project. The entire project will cost almost

:16:46.:16:49.

?1 million. The roof has been looking for 15

:16:50.:16:53.

years, we have a really important collection here, a fashion

:16:54.:16:59.

collection, and the contents of Killerton House. We have the

:17:00.:17:02.

opportunity now thanks to this legacy, and hopefully with the

:17:03.:17:04.

additional fundraising we will make the project happen.

:17:05.:17:11.

All of your paintings will have to be removed from the wall to conserve

:17:12.:17:14.

the area. We will replace the lead roof on the

:17:15.:17:18.

old mansion and we will take an opportunity to undertake masonry

:17:19.:17:24.

repairs and parapet repairs and chimney repairs, and then

:17:25.:17:29.

redecorating the outside. Lime wash and painting repairs, so it is spec

:17:30.:17:32.

and span. The house and grounds will remain

:17:33.:17:35.

open throughout the project, but the first floor and stairwell will be

:17:36.:17:39.

closed off. As for the famous fashion exhibition, that will return

the club has won anyway. Earlier in the programme we talked

:19:41.:19:56.

about the downside of apps and social media, but now it is time to

:19:57.:19:58.

focus on the positive. Now, to get your creative juices

:19:59.:20:00.

flowing, Exeter has become a virtual poetry city and organisers think

:20:01.:20:03.

it's the first of its kind The idea came about after

:20:04.:20:05.

the devastating fire at the Royal Clarence Hotel

:20:06.:20:08.

at the end of last year. It's hoped the poetry project

:20:09.:20:11.

will help to capture the emotions of the tragedy and the essence

:20:12.:20:14.

of the city as a whole. Spotlight's Andrea

:20:15.:20:17.

Ormsby has the story. There's a lots of walking, stopping,

:20:18.:20:20.

thinking and walking on again with this poetry project,

:20:21.:20:22.

all with mobile phone in hand. OK, so exeter.poetrypin.info,

:20:23.:20:28.

put that in and you will see where the poem are and they are pinned

:20:29.:20:34.

around, and you can contact the poem that are already in the city

:20:35.:20:38.

or you can add your own. You push the "add poem",

:20:39.:20:41.

write your own poem, click submit and that poem then tags

:20:42.:20:45.

to where you are stood. Chris Jelly is the poet

:20:46.:20:49.

behind this project. I think people are keen

to communicate in any way they can communicate,

into a virtual poetry city. I believe it is the

:21:09.:21:14.

first in the world. That is quite an

:21:15.:21:18.

extraordinary claim. We thought, well, that sounds

:21:19.:21:20.

wonderful because it mixes the creative opportunity,

:21:21.:21:22.

Spotlight, Exeter. Somebody else getting the creative

:22:20.:22:34.

juices flowing is David with the weather. A lot happening. A

:22:35.:22:38.

complicated story with the risk of snow. We have had several warnings

:22:39.:22:42.

issued. I will make it as simple as I can but it is a complicated

:22:43.:22:47.

picture. Good evening. We have cold weather, Arctic are heading our way.

:22:48.:22:52.

The transition between the males air we will have tomorrow and the Arctic

:22:53.:22:57.

are arriving then will be fraught. And it will be contradicted by a new

:22:58.:23:00.

area of low pressure developing on Thursday. Tomorrow is turning

:23:01.:23:05.

colder. Some showers around and a bit brighter as well. We should see

:23:06.:23:08.

Sunny spells developing during the cause of the afternoon. Thereafter,

:23:09.:23:13.

it starts to get very much colder. One layer of cloud approaching us

:23:14.:23:18.

this evening is bringing milder air overnight, so no worries for the

:23:19.:23:21.

temperature tonight. This conference should move southwards and by

:23:22.:23:26.

lunchtime tomorrow it is crossing the channel into northern France.

:23:27.:23:30.

That opens the door for colder air, but even colder are heading our way,

:23:31.:23:33.

developing as the weather front comes from the North Down words.

:23:34.:23:37.

This system in the middle of the Atlantic develops into an area of

:23:38.:23:41.

low pressure, and meets that colder air. That gives us a headache

:23:42.:23:44.

because we are not really sure at this stage whether that means the

:23:45.:23:47.

rain will turn readily to sleet and snow or whether it will fall as

:23:48.:23:52.

rain. There is a risk at and we continue to talk about a risk,

:23:53.:23:57.

particularly across Central part of Britain, and we will see in the

:23:58.:24:01.

south-west of England eventing where the low pressure develops, but a

:24:02.:24:04.

risk of high ground particularly through the afternoon on Thursday,

:24:05.:24:07.

of the rain turning to sleet and then snow. And it all moves away

:24:08.:24:11.

East words and we draw in the really cold air, as we move from Thursday

:24:12.:24:16.

night into Friday. Friday will be a bit of a cold day but another thing

:24:17.:24:21.

you will notice is how windy it is. A combination of low temperatures

:24:22.:24:25.

and Arctic air and guilt force winds means it will feel bitterly cold as

:24:26.:24:31.

we move to the end of the week. -- gale force winds. Temperatures lower

:24:32.:24:34.

through the day of thirsty and overnight Thursday to Friday

:24:35.:24:38.

temperatures like this, many locations getting at or below

:24:39.:24:41.

freezing, on Thursday night, and there is a risk of some snow and ice

:24:42.:24:45.

developing. There into Friday mostly over high ground. You can stay tuned

:24:46.:24:53.

to your local radio if it is causing problems. Tonight there are no real

:24:54.:24:58.

worries. A lot of cloud around producing a use bits of drizzle,

:24:59.:25:03.

today has been a great day. This is Cullerton, where we have had a lot

:25:04.:25:06.

of cloud. It has been misty and there have been spot of drizzle in

:25:07.:25:10.

the wind. Relatively quiet. The breeze is picking up and that Breeze

will bring with it further outbreaks of light rain and drizzle. -- this

is in Killerton. In mild night with no frost forecast and temperatures

:25:23.:25:27.

between six and eight Celsius or most of us. Let's follow the

:25:28.:25:30.

progress of the cloud rolling into night. So outbreaks of rain as I

:25:31.:25:36.

have mentioned, increasingly windy overnight. That is the picture of

:25:37.:25:40.

the weather through the night and tomorrow. A brisk, north-west wind,

:25:41.:25:47.

and temperatures between 6-8 C. We studied a tomorrow with good

:25:48.:25:49.

temperatures but gradually through the day as the cold front moves away

:25:50.:25:54.

from us, and the colder air follows, the temperatures are going to start

:25:55.:25:57.

to come down. A few showers are possible and sunny spells as well.

:25:58.:26:02.

Not a bad day. It is blustery, especially over high ground and

:26:03.:26:06.

along the north coast to Cornwall and Devon, so temperatures starting

:26:07.:26:10.

to come down through the afternoon. Down to six or seven Celsius by the

:26:11.:26:13.

end of the day, the blustery north-west wind. For the Isles of

:26:14.:26:17.

Scilly, showers billing cold in that wind. Highest temperature first

:26:18.:26:20.

thing in the morning, then the temperature continues to drop. Times

:26:21.:26:28.

of high water here. For our servers, most of the north facing beaches

:26:29.:26:32.

will be messy with those north-westerly winds. -- for

:26:33.:26:38.

surfing. The coastal waters forecast, north-westerly six or

:26:39.:26:44.

seven, showers with good visibility. Onto the outlook and what we will

:26:45.:26:48.

see as we head towards the weekend. Thursday for most of us we will see

:26:49.:26:52.

outbreak of rain. The high ground towards the end of the day on

:26:53.:26:56.

Thursday, we could see sleet and snow. A bitterly cold day on Friday

:26:57.:27:00.

with some frequent wintry showers, especially over high ground. Cold

:27:01.:27:05.

and brake on Saturday. Have a good evening.

:27:06.:27:09.

Thank you. A reminder of a story developing while we have been on air

:27:10.:27:13.

tonight. One of the main roads in Plymouth was closed for a time this

:27:14.:27:17.

afternoon after suspected World War II incendiary devices were found. As

:27:18.:27:23.

we see here, they were dug up and blown up this afternoon, but for a

:27:24.:27:27.

while businesses in the area were evacuated. That road reopened as we

:27:28.:27:31.

started Spotlight tonight, so hopefully things in that area on

:27:32.:27:35.

Tavistock Road in Plymouth are getting back to normal.

:27:36.:27:38.

Further updates if there are any in our latest news at 10:30pm, but good

:27:39.:27:40.

night from us. It's back... Let's get ready to

:27:41.:28:25.

grumble. ..with more belligerence... Can you imagine anything more

:28:26.:28:28.

diabolical? ..moaning...
