Good evening. stories on the BBC News Channel.

A new service has been launched in Somerset to cut hospital

admissions and relieve the pressure on accident and

:00:17.:00:19.

It involves doctors responding to some 999 calls

:00:20.:00:23.

Those behind the scheme say it's one of the first in the country

:00:24.:00:27.

with 80 percent of patients being treated at home.

:00:28.:00:29.

Good morning, go ahead. Just to let you know that the GP 909 car from

:00:30.:00:52.

Taunton is online. This is one of two first responders with a GP on

more confiscated problems, mental health, and of life problems.

:01:03.:01:07.

Complicated medical conditions, with ongoing difficult health problems.

:01:08.:01:11.

Not long before such a call comes through. From the police.

:01:12.:01:17.

An elderly woman in confusion, there is concern for her welfare. The

:01:18.:01:26.

doctor goes to assess her, as a GP he can do more than a paramedic,

:01:27.:01:31.

prescribe drugs, and look at medical records. It means he can treat this

:01:32.:01:35.

patient home. It is very likely this lady would have been taken to the

:01:36.:01:39.

emergency department for an assessment by doctors, which would

:01:40.:01:44.

have been distressing for her potentially, making her confusion

:01:45.:01:47.

worse actually. She possibly would have been admitted to hospital

:01:48.:01:52.

directly from there. In two months 80% of those seen by the surface

:01:53.:01:57.

have avoided hospital. Improving patient care, good for the use of

:01:58.:02:01.

the resources and the local NHS, potentially freeing up hospital beds

:02:02.:02:07.

for other patients. It is being funded for another year, and will be

999 three to respond to another call.

:02:17.:02:19.

The mother of a Devon teenager who was raped and killed in India 9

:02:20.:02:22.

years ago has welcomed news of an appeal against the decision to

:02:23.:02:25.

15 year old Scarlett Keeling was on a family trip

:02:26.:02:32.

Last year a court freed the two men charged

:02:33.:02:36.

in connection with her death - but now India's Criminal

:02:37.:02:39.

Investigations Bureau is appealing against their aquittal.

:02:40.:02:40.

A hearing is due to take place tomorrow.

:02:41.:02:44.

At her home in north Devon Scarlett's mum, Fiona McKeown,

:02:45.:02:49.

told us she believes the appeal is good news but doesn't

:02:50.:02:52.

I have only just heard that they are going to launch an appeal in the

:02:53.:03:05.

High Court in Mumbai. It is kind of good, proactive. I really want a new

:03:06.:03:10.

investigation, only half an investigation anyway. Even if these

:03:11.:03:15.

guys go to prison, it will feel like there is more that needs to be done.

:03:16.:03:18.

Onto rugby and the Exeter Chiefs scored five tries as they drew

:03:19.:03:21.

The lead changed hands several times and the Chiefs played the last half

hour with just 14 players after Jonny Hill was sent off

:03:26.:03:28.

They managed managed to hang on for a 35-35 draw.

:03:29.:03:35.

Really good game, really swung like a tennis match. One end to another.

:03:36.:03:46.

Their resolve the end of day. Given that 30 minutes odd they played with

:03:47.:03:52.

14 men, I thought they did well to come out of that the draw. Against

:03:53.:03:56.

them, they are so good, they have done amazing to stay in the game

really. Let's take a look at the weather -

:04:18.:04:22.

brisk breeze picking up from the East. That will be with us through

:04:23.:04:26.

the day tomorrow. Quite a windy day, especially around the north coast of

:04:27.:04:32.

Devon and Cornwall. Plenty of dry and bright weather, just a few

:04:33.:04:36.

showers pushing into Cornwall later in the day. Top temperature around

:04:37.:04:40.

11 degrees, feeling cooler with the strength of the wind. Through the

:04:41.:04:44.

rest of the week, staying mile, the wind gradually easing off through

strong winds starting to develop. The odd spot of drizzle into the far

:05:27.:05:32.

north-east. The wind strengthening here. Already signs of something a

:05:33.:05:38.

little bit miles, temperatures climbing up. However it's not going

:05:39.:05:43.

to feel that warm straightaway. Because of the strength of the wind.

:05:44.:05:48.

The wind however will break up the cloud, so some sunshine into central

:05:49.:05:56.

and Southern areas. The cloud is thickening all the time. The odd bit

:05:57.:06:03.

of drizzle. Some sunny spells and highs of around 80
