of pocket The thieves are proving pretty slick operators. The moon pub


in Storrington. It is early morning and CCTV captures unwelcome


visitors. These thieves aren't interested in breaking into the pub,


and they're not here for the all`day breakfast. What these two wanted old


chip fat, used cooking oil. The chef came to see me, she said,


"I think we have lost our waste oil. ones we buy. Had it been a few years


ago when we did get money back from the oil, it would have been great


because somebody else was getting rid of it for others. `` when we


didn't get money back. However, oil has gone up massively. Despite


others' healthy eating messages, we still go through an estimated 650


million litres of cooking oil a year. This is what it is all about,


bio diesel. In order to get that, you need this. Old chip


transesterification. Transesterification. While my grasp


of chemistry might be a laughing matter, the impact oil theft is


having on the legitimate industry is not. It is a big problem. We have a


supplier we use all the time based in Berkshire who we buy oil from. We


pay local approximately 1,200 litres. That is


a value of about ?250. Michael's family have been in the waste


business for generations. His grandfather started out in the


1950s. Nowadays, he's on the road with his dad, travelling across the


south collecting and delivering. On average, we probably lose about 400


litres to 1,000 litres a day that get stolen.


Legitimate companies say the current system encourages the black market.


The Government can help us with tighter policy. At the moment,


they're allowed to have 1,000 litres of bio diesel to be made without


paying any duty. That opens the door for people to begin a bigger


business producing illegitimate bio diesel and not paying any duty. If


someone is stealing the oil and makes it in the garage,


Southampton. I have been finding out more. This is Beechwood Care home in


Southampton. Empty, because for now, it's been closed down. The


Government's Care Quality Commission failed it. As a result, Southampton


City Council withdrew funding and removed its residents. We have two


watch our resident being Council pays between three and ?50


and ?420. People have to understand we can only do so much. Sometimes


are failing simply because there is not enough money.


Across the south, the average amount paid per week


determined the rate paid, and that any published rates should be seen


in that light. Oakwood manager Karen says she has


very few staff, all on the minimum wage, but that everyone's well cared


for. My girls work hard. The residents wonder, they do their own


thing. They are clean. This is my land. They are happy, contented.


This is one of my Raymond. They look nice, they get

No. My home is not dirty. On the day of the visit, that was when one ``


that was when one of the Lady's rooms, she spilt a cup of tea on the


bed. They are making out it was dirty, it was your rants tense.


People will read that and think finished. A shower room is what they


asked. This is in progress? Yes. It has to be redecorated. I have to see


what the finances are. At least that is in progress.


Also at the CQC's insistence, new care plans are being drawn up for


every resident. Everything is being re`modified.

much with the tools I have got. I am sure you have got a view on


that story. E`mail address is on screen if you do. Now finally


tonight, it has been another week of our coastline being battered by


these winter storms. But is the best form of defence actually retreat?


That is what has happened in Sussex where part of a shingle bank has


been opened up deliberately near Selsey.


since the breach was cut. These were once completely covered by shingle.


Winter storms are scouring the beach away. The gap is widening. What I


find truly mind`boggling about coming back here is that over the


years I and a whole generation of BBC South reporters have spent many


wild winters here reporting on the desperate struggle to stop precisely


well before they reached the new bank.


It has been very difficult for us in the past to maintain the shingle


bank here because the waves just crash straight onto that shingle


bank and tear it apart quite quickly. But with the new defences


father inwards, the waves coming over the new intertidal area behind


here will absorb the wave energy and therefore reduce the damage that


could occur to the defences. We're very confident the defences will


stand up and do a very good job for But by medieval times, people were


back and the evidence is under this tarpaulin. You are looking at the


remains of a medieval fence. It stretched some 160 metres. As the


team dug further, they realised this was a 14th century fishing area,


with wooden fences designed to funnel and trap fish as the tide


dropped. Habitats where the tide flows in and


out over the top are one of the richest habitats you can find. It is


full of tiny creatures, tiny snails, worms, that wading birds feed on.


And these birds that come from the Arctic and Scandinavia, they come to


the UK because we are so good for those kind of habitats. And those


habitats are getting squeezed all along the South coast. We are losing


them. This area near Portsmouth illustrates the problem. The salt


marsh is disappearing. Sea levels are rising and the currents scour.


The marsh wants to move inland. I think it is going brilliantly.


When you consider that the habitats that are being created are so young,


they are so newly formed, you would not expect them to be doing miracles


for nature straight off. And already there has been up to 1000 types of


the duck that comes from Arctic, coming to spend the winter and


loving it already. `` the Arctic. Nothing like
