It's been announced that the Dean of Exeter Cathedral,

:00:09.:00:11.

the Very Reverend Jonathan Draper, is leaving his post

:00:12.:00:14.

It comes months after he was described by his own Bishop

:00:15.:00:23.

The Diocese of Exeter confirmed the Dean will retire

:00:24.:00:26.

after a sabbatical ends in August, saying he has achieved considerable

:00:27.:00:30.

change and given the Cathedral a greater mission focus -

:00:31.:00:33.

while his preaching ministry has been greatly appreciated.

:00:34.:00:43.

Today's statement spoke of challenging issues

:00:44.:00:44.

not least financial, and said while progress has been

:00:45.:00:48.

made there are still many challenges ahead.

:00:49.:00:49.

I think it's sad. I think that he...

:00:50.:00:54.

There have been major problems at the Cathedral of recent years,

:00:55.:00:58.

and I think that perhaps he has decided

:00:59.:01:00.

that this is the best thing for the Cathedral itself

:01:01.:01:02.

and for the whole of the congregation.

:01:03.:01:04.

I'm surprised, because he seems to be doing a good job here.

:01:05.:01:10.

But as everything, there's always time for change.

:01:11.:01:14.

"I don't want to see anyone going through the heartache

:01:15.:01:16.

The words of a north Devon woman who lost her 19-year-old son

:01:17.:01:22.

This weekend, Brenda Luckett watched young people be screened in Bude,

:01:23.:01:28.

her family has raised over the last eight years.

:01:29.:01:37.

Not what you'd expect to see a teenager doing first thing

:01:38.:01:40.

But for Nathan, this screening could save his life.

:01:41.:01:44.

He's the same age as Martin Luckett, who died suddenly from

:01:45.:01:47.

Since then, his mum and sister have fund-raised tirelessly,

:01:48.:01:54.

so that other young people can be checked for warning signs.

:01:55.:01:59.

There was a song came on the radio and I nearly

:02:00.:02:06.

started, and I thought, "No, you've got to get on with it.

:02:07.:02:12.

It's still quite emotional, because I see, like,

:02:13.:02:15.

that would be Martin's age, and we don't want to see anybody

:02:16.:02:18.

going through the heartache that we went through.

:02:19.:02:20.

And 200 young people have come to these screening

:02:21.:02:23.

sessions this weekend, because of the awareness raised

:02:24.:02:24.

You may think that this is a condition that affects

:02:25.:02:28.

But we currently know that at least 12 young people,

:02:29.:02:36.

otherwise fit and healthy, every week die suddenly.

:02:37.:02:38.

Stathis thinks every young person should have the option to be tested

:02:39.:02:41.

But Public Health England has told Spotlight it regularly

:02:42.:02:45.

reviews who gets screened, and has found no clear evidence

:02:46.:02:47.

whether screening children would reduce illness or death.

:02:48.:02:49.

Well, my mum's a good friend of the family who organised it,

:02:50.:02:52.

so she thought it was best to go and get checked out and make

:02:53.:02:55.

What do you think he would have made of all the fundraising and all this

:02:56.:03:05.

Yeah, he would have been really proud.

:03:06.:03:14.

In rugby, the Exeter Chiefs are through to their third

:03:15.:03:22.

successive Anglo-Welsh Cup Final, after a comfortable victory over

:03:23.:03:24.

The Chiefs went over four times in the 24-7 win,

:03:25.:03:27.

as they booked their passage for next week's final showdown

:03:28.:03:30.

against Leicester - ironically, the game will be played at Quins'

:03:31.:03:32.

And finally, the South West's Hindu community have been

:03:33.:03:36.

celebrating the Holi Festival of Colours this weekend.

:03:37.:03:38.

It's certainly a vibrant affair as Spotlight's Johnny

:03:39.:03:40.

This is Holi, a Hindu celebration of the arrival

:03:41.:03:51.

But before all that, there's prayers - and lots of eating.

:03:52.:04:04.

Fried bread, some rice, that go fantastically well

:04:05.:04:12.

Which is mixed with vegetables and a lentil curry.

:04:13.:04:19.

Today we're celebrating Holi, which is the celebration of colours,

:04:20.:04:21.

and we celebrate the end of a good harvest and the start of spring.

:04:22.:04:25.

And good over evil, which is a nice message.

:04:26.:04:27.

It's good, clean family fun, with a bit of mischief thrown in.

:04:28.:04:33.

We're planning to split into teams, and we're

:04:34.:04:35.

There isn't many rules, you just take colours and throw it.

:04:36.:04:43.

You're not going to bombard me, are you?

:04:44.:04:45.

Johnny Rutherford, BBC Spotlight, Exeter!

:04:46.:05:00.

On to the weather - here's Holly with the forecast.

:05:01.:05:03.

Some of us are ending the day with some sunshine,

:05:04.:05:06.

and that translates to clear skies into tonight.

:05:07.:05:09.

Some patchy rain still just clearing the Channel Islands,

:05:10.:05:11.

but underneath those clear skies for tonight it will

:05:12.:05:14.

We could see a touch of frost for some prone cold spots,

:05:15.:05:17.

and it's a nippier start tomorrow morning than we've seen of late,

:05:18.:05:20.

Some good spells of sunshine, but gradually cloud will wend

:05:21.:05:24.

its way in from the northwest, and it will tend to lower as well

:05:25.:05:28.

so eventually we'll see some sea fog lapping in,

:05:29.:05:30.

Parts of South Devon, Dorset and of course

:05:31.:05:33.

the Channel Islands staying bright for the longest, and in

:05:34.:05:36.

the sunshine, highs getting up to around 40 degrees.

:05:37.:05:38.

Cloudier skies in general then through Tuesday and Wednesday,

:05:39.:05:40.

a little bit damp at times, but it is staying mild

:05:41.:05:42.

That's all we've got time for. Goodbye for now.

:05:43.:06:07.

Hello, the weather was hit-and-miss today across the UK, bit of

:06:08.:06:11.

sunshine, a few spots

:06:12.:06:12.
