the Very Reverend Jonathan Draper, is leaving his post

:00:10.:00:18.

It comes months after he was described by his own Bishop

:00:19.:00:21.

as "remote and disinterested" and at challenging times

:00:22.:00:23.

At the age of 65, the Dean will retire

:00:24.:00:28.

The Diocese of Exeter confirmed the retirement,

:00:29.:00:32.

saying he haD achieved considerable change and given the cathedral

:00:33.:00:41.

-- saying he had achieved considerable change

:00:42.:00:43.

a greater mission focus, while his preaching ministry has

:00:44.:00:46.

I asked some of the congregation as they arrrived for even song

:00:47.:00:50.

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

:00:51.:00:56.

and I think that perhaps he has decided that this is the best

:00:57.:00:59.

thing for the cathedral itself and for the whole

:01:00.:01:01.

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

:01:02.:01:06.

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

:01:07.:01:09.

And if it seems like the right change for him, then I think that's

:01:10.:01:13.

I think that all one can do is pray for the Cathedral and all involved

:01:14.:01:18.

I'm sure the bishop knows what he's doing.

:01:19.:01:28.

Today's statement on the diocese's website spoke of the challenges

:01:29.:01:30.

facing the cathedral, not least financial.

:01:31.:01:31.

It said, "While progress has been made, there

:01:32.:01:33.

"The Dean's announcement," it said, "Was made in that context."

:01:34.:01:41.

200 young people were screened for heart problems this weekend

:01:42.:01:45.

thanks to a fundraising campaign in memory of a teenager

:01:46.:01:47.

from north Devon who died of an undiagnosed condition.

:01:48.:01:51.

19-year-old Martin Luckett died suddenly in 2005.

:01:52.:01:55.

Since then his mother and sister have fundraised tirelessly so other

:01:56.:01:58.

youngsters can be checked for warning signs.

:01:59.:02:01.

Public Health England says there's no clear evidence that screening

:02:02.:02:04.

children would reduce illness or death but some doctors believe

:02:05.:02:07.

every young person should have the option to be tested

:02:08.:02:11.

You may think that this is a condition that affects

:02:12.:02:16.

But we currently know that at least 12 young people,

:02:17.:02:22.

otherwise fit and healthy, every week die suddenly

:02:23.:02:25.

and these are young people, less than 35 years old.

:02:26.:02:29.

A young boy and his dog from Cornwall had their moment

:02:30.:02:31.

in the main arena at Crufts this evening after reaching the final

:02:32.:02:35.

of the Friends for Life hero dog competition.

:02:36.:02:38.

Caddie is a specially trained autism assistance Labrador from the "Dogs

:02:39.:02:42.

for Good" charity and was given to 13-year-old Joel

:02:43.:02:44.

He helps calm anxiety and carry out everyday tasks.

:02:45.:02:49.

The pair narrowly missed out on the title but to Joel,

:02:50.:02:52.

Caddie is his "guardian angel" and a winner every time.

:02:53.:02:56.

And he gives me safe because I have autism.

:02:57.:03:07.

For me and by husband and my family, it's overwhelming to think

:03:08.:03:11.

that we're here today, because of somebody had said

:03:12.:03:18.

-- that we're here today, because if somebody had said

:03:19.:03:21.

this five years ago, or even four years ago when we first

:03:22.:03:24.

got Caddie, I would have said there's no way we could possibly

:03:25.:03:26.

have been able to come into a place so crowded, with all these bright

:03:27.:03:30.

lights and the noise and everything, but here we are and that's all down

:03:31.:03:33.

The South West's Hindu community has been celebrating the Holi Festival

:03:34.:03:37.

It's a vibrant affair celebrating the coming of a bright new season.

:03:38.:03:43.

It's a chance for the community to get together pray eat dance

:03:44.:03:46.

and have fun with a bit of mischeif thrown in.

:03:47.:03:54.

-- and have fun with a bit of mischief thrown in.

:03:55.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:03:59.

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

:04:00.:04:02.

And good over evil, which is a nice message.

:04:03.:04:04.

Here's Holly now, with the forecast for the next few days.

:04:05.:04:07.

We've got starry skies overhead for tonight and any lingering

:04:08.:04:11.

rain has been clearing the Channel Islands

:04:12.:04:13.

and underneath these starry skies it could get quite chilly,

:04:14.:04:16.

in fact, we could see a touch of frost in some cold spots.

:04:17.:04:19.

These are more typical temperatures as we push into tomorrow morning.

:04:20.:04:21.

A nippier start than we have seen of late but also

:04:22.:04:24.

Good spells of sunshine initially but we do find cloud thickening

:04:25.:04:28.

from the north-west and it will start to lower as well.

:04:29.:04:30.

Sea fog lapping in, coastal fog, hill fog developing too.

:04:31.:04:33.

Parts of Devon, Dorset and the Channel Islands hanging

:04:34.:04:35.

Given that sunshine lingering a bit more, we could see highs getting up

:04:36.:04:40.

Cloudier skies then unfortunately for Tuesday

:04:41.:04:42.

Hopefully not too much rain and it does at least stay mild.

:04:43.:04:49.

But from all of us here, have a good night.

:04:50.:05:03.

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

:05:04.:05:10.

there was sunshine for western areas during the afternoon, and here are

:05:11.:05:13.

the clear skies at sunset in Northern Ireland. Thanks to weather

:05:14.:05:19.

watcher Robin for this picture, those clear skies have been making

:05:20.:05:23.

their way further east ward. Temperatures are dropping away, we

:05:24.:05:26.

have seen temperatures of freezing in parts of Northern Ireland. More

:05:27.:05:30.

cloud rolling in during the latter part of the night but towns and

:05:31.:05:34.

cities down the five and six m the countryside many of us will see the

:05:35.:05:37.

temperatures a degree or so above freezing, so a slight touch of frost

:05:38.:05:44.

across the rural parts of England and Wales for

:05:45.:05:45.
