Good afternoon. the late news at 10.15pm.

:00:12.:00:13.

An appeal has been lodged over the case of Devon teenager

:00:14.:00:15.

Scarlett Keeling who was killed in India in 2008.

:00:16.:00:18.

The 15-year-old was raped and killed in Goa while on a family

:00:19.:00:23.

Two men accused of killing her were acquitted last year.

:00:24.:00:28.

The lawyer representing Scarlett's family has told the BBC that

:00:29.:00:31.

India's Central Bureau of Investigation is now appealing

:00:32.:00:34.

against that acquittal and a hearing is scheduled to take

:00:35.:00:37.

More than 250 performers took to the stage in Ilfracombe today

:00:38.:00:45.

in protest at the closure of North Devon's theatres.

:00:46.:00:48.

The Landmark in the town and Queens Theatre in Barnstaple

:00:49.:00:50.

shut last month after the trust running them went

:00:51.:00:54.

North Devon Council has pledged its commitment to getting

:00:55.:00:57.

the theatres open again as soon as possible.

:00:58.:00:59.

All angry at the news their local theatres have

:01:00.:01:10.

The creative industries bring money into this country, the

:01:11.:01:13.

And although regional theatres don't necessarily get all

:01:14.:01:17.

of that, somewhere like Ilfracombe will.

:01:18.:01:19.

West End theatres of course make billions

:01:20.:01:21.

a year and with those sort of shows and the quality of productions, I am

:01:22.:01:24.

sure that these places could do as well.

:01:25.:01:27.

Those thoughts are backed by the performers who came from across

:01:28.:01:30.

Them not being here would be absolutely devastating to so many

:01:31.:01:36.

So many people have lost their jobs, so many people have lost

:01:37.:01:44.

a home for our classes and it's just such a big thing that it would be

:01:45.:01:50.

It opens so much, not just from being part of a theatre.

:01:51.:02:00.

The musical here is a massive part of

:02:01.:02:02.

what makes the Landmark so special, so to lose it, it's just unthinkable

:02:03.:02:05.

and I think if we can't get it back, Ilfracombe will suffer because

:02:06.:02:08.

North Devon Council has issued a statement saying it is

:02:09.:02:14.

committed to saving the theatres, and hopes to have the keys back next

:02:15.:02:17.

These people are vowing to keep up the pressure to make sure

:02:18.:02:21.

that means the theatre doors would be open again soon.

:02:22.:02:23.

On to football, and Home Park is packed to capacity this afternoon

:02:24.:02:34.

for the match some have described as the biggest Devon derby

:02:35.:02:36.

ever between Plymouth Argyle and Exeter City.

:02:37.:02:44.

Fans were in high spirits as they arrived for the game

:02:45.:02:47.

There's a large police presence in the city with some reports

:02:48.:02:54.

of trouble earlier away from the ground.

:02:55.:02:56.

While Argyle may be nine points ahead of their rivals,

:02:57.:02:58.

the Grecians are in top form, having won their last seven matches.

:02:59.:03:01.

Both sit in the top four of League Two and are

:03:02.:03:03.

Tend to feel more confident than today, but they are doing well,

:03:04.:03:11.

They are going to come in overconfident.

:03:12.:03:15.

Argyle will take them today definitely.

:03:16.:03:16.

And the second half is now underway - if you want to keep up-to-date,

:03:17.:03:24.

don't forget there is full match commentary this afternoon

:03:25.:03:27.

Argyle are currently ahead at Home Park, leading 2-0 thanks

:03:28.:03:31.

Elsewhere in League Two, Yeovil are 1-0 up at home to Orient

:03:32.:03:37.

thanks to a Francois Zoko goal just before half time.

:03:38.:03:42.

And in the National League the half-time score at Plainmoor

:03:43.:03:44.

was Torquay United 0-1 Macclesfield Town.

:03:45.:03:49.

On to rugby, and Exeter Chiefs play Wasps tomorrow,

:03:50.:03:51.

while Plymouth Albion are in action against Coventry at

:03:52.:03:54.

The score at half time was 15-10 in Albion's favour.

:03:55.:03:59.

Well, lots of wintry showers around today -

:04:00.:04:01.

Here's Lucy Martin with the forecast.

:04:02.:04:04.

We are staying with that wintry feel as we move

:04:05.:04:08.

We did see some snowfall today, as captured by our Weather Watcher

:04:09.:04:12.

As we move through this evening and overnight,

:04:13.:04:15.

We will see a few patches of frost developing.

:04:16.:04:21.

Some outbreaks of rain which could contain something

:04:22.:04:23.

Those temperatures falling to an overnight low

:04:24.:04:27.

We are looking at a cold start to the day tomorrow.

:04:28.:04:31.

A few outbreaks of rain and that could be wintry

:04:32.:04:37.

Temperatures reaching a maximum of seven Celsius,

:04:38.:04:39.

with quite strong wind knocking the edge off, particularly

:04:40.:04:42.

But the good news news is that as we move into Monday,

:04:43.:04:46.

starting to see something a bit more springlike.

:04:47.:04:48.

Those temperatures rocketing back into the double figures,

:04:49.:04:51.

but that easterly breeze will really take the edge off.

:04:52.:04:55.

That is all. Next update tomorrow evening at 5:40pm.

:04:56.:05:12.

Good afternoon. An afternoon to snuggle up in front of the telly and

:05:13.:05:19.

watch some rugby. It's been a cold winter's day. Not just for humans.

:05:20.:05:27.

This shot was taken earlier. There was some sunshine in Scotland, here

:05:28.:05:30.

a beautiful afternoon. That was the expectation for most. It's bleak out

:05:31.:05:35.

there. A mixture of rain and snow on the radar. You have to go a long way

:05:36.:05:39.

up the hills to find settling snow. Into the evening and temperatures

:05:40.:05:42.

begin to fall again, we could see some of the white stuff turning up

:05:43.:05:46.

again at lower levels across eastern Counties of England and quite a lot

:05:47.:05:51.

of snow piling up over the Pennines in particular on a brisk wind, it is

:05:52.:05:54.

going to feel cold wherever you are with temperatures hovering close to

:05:55.:06:00.

freezing. Tomorrow another raw feeling day.

:06:01.:06:05.

Further rain, sleet and snow. Most of the snow

:06:06.:06:06.
