Is a lack of cash putting the South's most vulnerable at risk?


Carers say we're heading for a crisis.


My choice has been to either breach the living wage or to say, "Sorry,


we just can't deliver the service that is right, is legal".


We're with people, we're not with a tin of baked


You can't just say, hang on a minute, it's


Also, we're uncovering a darker side to the South's music scene.


This guy came up behind me and he started trying


to unzip my shorts and put his hand down my shorts.


Anybody who says they're not aware this is happening


And a rare glimpse of a shy creature that's closer than you might think.


First, it's ?1 billion funding shortfall having a devastating


effect on the way we care for our most vulnerable and elderly here in


the South. Government cuts and rising costs have seen some care


providers pull out altogether from local council contracts. We


It's the crack of dawn in investigate a care system in crisis.


It's the crack of dawn in Littlehampton, West Sussex. This is


Jo. She's going to be filming new. Is that OK? Say hi. This is Selma,


she's 26 and lives at home with mother, brothers and sister. She is


on a day out with her carers in the front and back. She likes garden


centres. Hates dogs! Loves Christmas. Is partial to a bit of


chocolate. And a cup of tea. We have four hours with her and sometimes it


can go very quickly because she takes the lead, so she is off. At


other times it can be quite a lengthy process. She used to go to a


day centre and her behaviours were really, really bad and it just


wasn't the right environment for her because she displayed lots of


challenging behaviour. Over the last few months, she's got so much


better. She is one of the 900,000 people in the UK who are looked


after by home care workers. We go to McDonald's twice a week. She likes


chicken nuggets and chips. Can you see the sign? Yes! Do you think it


is an undervalued role? Very much so, very much so. I think the pay


is, and also if my role says support worker, people don't look on it as a


valuable role. Her care is provided by a small family business in


Worthing run by three sisters, Alison, Helen and manager Debbie


funded by West Sussex County Council funded by West Sussex County Council


and things are tight. We don't have enough money. Our focus has to be on


paying the staff as much as we can paying the staff as much as we can


and encouraging the right people to apply for the jobs. The carers are


employing today are still starting on the same level as they were in


2009. Frozen wages mean company companies like this are struggling


to employ qualified staff. State funding is definitely not in a


healthy place. The system is said to be in crisis. The policy director is


Colin Angel. At the moment it's ?16.70 an hour for home care but the


council is paying ?2 an hour less than that. That's a significant


amount and it will impact on what is available for running this service


and will certainly mean care workers' pay is nowhere near as good


as it should be to the valuable work that they do. We discovered nearly


half the councils in the South are paying less than the recommended


minimum of ?16.70 an hour. And underfunding isn't just a funding


problem for care providers. Sometimes we are the only people


they will see in the day. If their families live far and wide, we might


be the only people they see, well, for two or three days, sometimes.


Hazel is a care worker. It is one of the country's biggest care


providers, where she works. It looks after 25,000 people in their own


homes. Our first call of the day is a 45-minute visit to Gwen at home


with husband Terry. Hello! Morning! My early weather detector tells me


it's absolutely frosty out there today! Gwen, what would you like


this morning? Would you like a shower or wash? I think I'll just


have a wash this morning. Gwen used to care for her husband, Terry, but


a few weeks ago she had a knee replacement, which means they both


need care. Me and my wife couldn't get through the day without having


food and that to have, and I can't do it and my wife can't do it now.


She used to do it all before. Come on. Welch is one of the better


paying councils and paste ?2 above the hourly rate recommended, but


with a 90% of councils not meeting anywhere near this, even big firms


like this are struggling. In 2015 this firm made a loss so they've


pulled out of some local authority contracts. Tough choices for the


director. Some councils haven't even been prepared to pay a rate that


meets your living requirements. So I either had to breach living wage


with those councils, which is clearly not acceptable as a thing to


do, or to say sorry, we just can't do, or to say sorry, we just can't


deliver the service that is right and is legal. We've seen few months


two of the top five providers pull out of the market completely. So not


just some contracts, they've pulled out completely. Is there any moral


quandary about pulling out? There definitely is. The really bad thing


is that people we might have been looking after for a number of years,


we can't do it, but the alternative is to pay our staff and illegal rate


and deliver a quality of service and deliver a quality of service


that would be to the detriment of those individuals. The government


recently announced plans to boost funding for social care by allowing


councils to increase tax at a local level. West Sussex plans to add ?46


a year onto the average council tax bill. The leader of the council is


Louise Goldsmith. Is this a permanent solution? No, this won't


resolve the problem by any means. This is the tip of the iceberg. I


can use lots of analogies. What we need is a real national review to


get the money in, to help our elderly and vulnerable residents. We


desperately, desperately want the Government to start a dialogue. We


will help them and work with them but we need proper funding for our


social care. How are you? Good. Back in Worthing, with their next client,


Karen. She gets help from carers three times a day, seven times a


week. Today it is Viv and Jackie. She suffers from epilepsy so you've


got to know... You know, you've got to get a relationship with Karen.


They are completely reliant on the care they get. You can't always tell


from Karen whether she recognises faces but she recognises voices.


That's important for her, I think. Her main aim in life is to have


somebody to hold her hand and she would be happy to sit all day with


somebody holding her hand. That's what she likes to do. But all too


often, that means it's the goodwill of her carers that plug the gap, as


with so many others. We are with a person, not a tin of Beit beans in


Tesco's. So you can't just say, it is five o'clock, I'm off. And you


are very special, aren't you? Yes! Goodwill doesn't last forever and


it's entirely wrong that care workers should be effectively


subsidising council budgets by doing more work than is required of them.


I think we are in a crisis nationally. We can improve the


service, we can work better collectively, but, yes, there is


more money needed. You think there'll ever be a point where it


gets so tight that you think, we can't provide what we want to


provide to the standard we want to? I hope not. I hope not. I've been in


this field for so long, I've looked after and cared for people for so


many years. I owe it to them to keep going. Onto the next one! Yes.


So, would you be prepared to pay more in council tax to prop up a


failing system? These guys have been letting me know what they think. Why


not email me about it? Here is my address below.


Still to come, one of the strangest friendships you will ever see. Just


so loving! Next, going to see your favourite


band play live should be memorable for all the right reasons. But a


growing number of music fans in the growing number of music fans in the


South say gigs are being ruined by strangers gripping them. This is our


report. There's something


going on at concerts. It's leaving people feeling


isolated and violated. For me, that's not how music


should make you feel. And it's putting a lot


of fans off live music. I was, like, 14 when I started


going to gigs with just my friends. And ever since then it's just been,


like, getting groped and felt up. This guy came up behind me


and he started trying to unzip my shorts and put his hand


down my shorts, and he was just grinding behind me


and wouldn't leave me alone. The attack, and that's


what it was ? an attack - It makes me more angry,


then it makes me upset, because it's happened before


so you get over it So what are you hoping


that we can do out of this? It's getting worse and girls


are giving up and we want to talk We all know gigs are loud,


sweaty and crowded. And sadly, these fans say,


so does being groped. Well, a lot of friends of ours


are just getting grabbed like that, especially in university,


I would say. We've almost become desensitized


to it and think that, "Oh, that's, like, normal behaviour",


but really I think Having spoken to people


from all over the UK, I'm finding out it's


a national problem. There's a support group called


Girls Against that's created an online movement to raise


awareness about these attacks. So far, more than 1,000


girls and some guys have been in touch with them,


all with similar stories of abuse, and it makes me want to know


why this sort of thing is still happening


in the 21st century. People are going to feel


like they can take certain Just because they're not


going to get caught. I've definitely been stood next


to it, in close proximity to it happening in clubs and done nothing


about it, so I guess in that sense I think harrassment


happens everywhere. Anybody who says that they aren't


aware of this sort of thing Ben Newby runs a live music venue


and says crowd safety If you guys are aware that this sort


of thing is going on, what are you actually doing to try


and stop this sort of We work with two great security


firms, and from the moment the complaint is made,


security take it seriously. They deal with everyone involved,


they take it away from everybody But for every good security company


like the ones you've got, there are those that don't have


protocols in place. I think you've been


very polite there. There are some companies that


are terrible, and where our frustration comes in is that


when we can spend money and time putting these in place,


why shouldn't everybody? But should it be up


to the venues alone? The Security Industry


Authority regulates every They make sure each security guard


has the right licences I'm checking out everything


the guards learn to Regulations are pretty


thorough, to be fair. With seven separate required


qualifications needed, covering everything from conflict


management to terrorism training. But music venue manager


Danni Brownshill thinks the SIA We add on to their training


ourselves but it'd be more useful if they came to us completely aware


of these things and it'd An independent report found


this SIA training has But here's the thing -


the training holds only one vague mention of sexual harassment


and offers security guards no guidance on how to act if someone


comes to them after being groped. And this is where victims


have a big problem. Some people have been told not


to dress that way if they don't want to be treated that way,


others have been told to forget about it or told,


"Yeah, we'll report it", I wanted to ask the SIA


if it was time they considered adding victim support


to their training. They initially agreed


to an interview but then cancelled, Evidence we had hoped to show them,


till they cancelled. When a fan told the band Peace


about being assaulted at one of their gigs,


frontman Harry Koisser says they felt they had to step up


and protect their fans. We'd never realised that this


happened at our shows The first thing we did


was kind of my gut feeling, which was after then on stage


to say, "If you feel comfortable doing this,


you have to leave immediately". The girl had said that she'd gone


to security that night and explained what had happened,


the guys had said, "There's nothing we can do", and that just


wasn't really good enough. So our tour manager then had


a security briefing made sure Someone else who thinks change


is long overdue is chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee


and Labour MP Yvette Cooper. It's great to see some of the bands


starting to call it out, but you need much stronger


action from the venue, from security, from everybody,


to say this is unacceptable behaviour and if it happens,


we'll take action on it. The Home Office say they're


confident the SIA's licensing I think the Home Office are going


to need to do more about this, because when it's affecting so many


young women going to gigs being treated in this way,


and there's no proper action to follow it up, I think you've


actually got to look back at both the training,


the response, the way the regulation system works,


to make sure that there's strong With the calls for change now


being heard, and with venues, fans and bands leading by example,


maybe we've taken a step towards reclaiming live


music for everyone. On the way, that stunning footage


from the Dorset coast, but before that, time for an update on one of


our stories. Remove these cute little Pomeranian


is? In 2015, we revealed how Hampshire man was selling puppies


smuggled in illegally from Ireland in the back of this man. -- remember


these dogs? We collected our delivery in these glamorous


surroundings at -- surroundings! He didn't want to chat but back at home


in his shed, we found this collection of gorgeous Westies. But


Louis still wasn't playing ball. Mr Sibley? And completely vanished


find some of his smuggled dogs for find some of his smuggled dogs for


sale online, fetching ?350 per puppy. Here, in this previously on


broadcast footage, are some of the 45 puppies seized from him by


Trading Standards. Unfortunately, 11 of them were sick and died. In court


last week, Louis Sibley, wearing it is a -- wearing his sunglasses,


pleaded guilty. He was given a year's suspended sentence,


rehabilitation activity for 20 hours and ordered to pay more than ?6,000


in costs and compensation. There are some good news -- there is some good


news, too. This is Dylan, one of the pups seized by Trading Standards. He


is loving life with his new family. Now, remember Paul, the World Cup


predicting octopus? It appears his skills weren't a one-off, because


the octopus turns out to be even more intelligent than we first


thought. Time to meet a scientist who a sucker for this eight legged


friend. I work for the marine biology


association and I love my job because I get to work with the most


ageing crook -- amazing creatures, no matter what the weather. While I


am fascinated by all our sea life, I do have a particular favourite. An


animal so unlike us, is almost alien, with eight arms, three hearts


and, in my view, a massive personality. Yes, it's the octopus.


I just love them. And today, we are I just love them. And today, we are


out on Plymouth Sound hoping to catch some native specimens.


We've had some success. Now it's time to get these guys back to the


lab. Monitoring our sea life helps us


understand what's happening to our seas. The octopus we usually see of


the South coast is the cold octopus, and while many species are


struggling, with rising sea temperatures, the octopus is


thriving and we want to understand why.


What we see straightaway is an increase in feeding and growth when


the temperature is just a degree or two higher, and this makes sense,


because the octopus is a because the octopus is a


fast-growing, cold blooded animal. Any increase in temperature will


increase metabolism. This is a relative of the octopus. . They grow


up to 65 centimetres long but these babies are just five centimetres


long. It is their feeding time I've trained them to take pieces of fish.


So what I'm doing is moving the fish around to get their attention.


Normally they would only attack moving prey. That's how they


recognise this is food. They are voracious predators. They hunt is


pretty much all the time. And as well as their tentacles, they've got


this amazing beak, almost like that of a parrot, in two parts, and they


use that to inject a neurotoxin into their prey which kills them in


seconds. I could watch them all day! But what I'm really interested in is


the octopus in its natural habitat. In Dorset, there is a man I very


much want to meet. Local diver Colin has regularly seen


at least one octopus of the 18 mile spit at Chesil Beach. What's more,


on his night dives, when the octopus on his night dives, when the octopus


is most active, he has filmed it. Colin has been diving and filming in


these waters most of his life, yet he had never seen an octopus, let


now. As you can see, initially it now. As you can see, initially it


wants to swim away but then settles down in my presence. Colin, this


it? A friend of mine had reported it? A friend of mine had reported


seeing an octopus and we went diving a few days after that at night, and


unbelievably, we came across the same octopus. How can you tell? My


partner named Tim Hank! You can see he has one arm severed so he's quite


easy to identify. Yes, you can really see his missing arm. So


whereabouts are you? This is at a depth of about 14, 15 metres over


the sandy patch. Do you do a lot of diving? Yes, Chesil Beach is close


to my heart. This is the first time I've ever seen one underwater and


I've been diving since the mid-80s. That's amazing. And you saw this guy


in the same place every night? There or thereabouts. We would have a


location and explore around and within a few minutes, we would find


him. That's interesting because we don't know much about territoriality


in octopus. We feel they have a home area they patrol but unfortunately


there's almost no way of gauging there's almost no way of gauging


this in the wild unless you were as fortunate as yourself, and saw them


night after night, so this is really valuable information for us. There


you go. Not troubled by our presence at all. Especially to feed like


that. That's great. So that's that. That's great. So that's


wonderful. We've just seen him sleep there, and that's something quite


red to film because these are quite shy animals, so to capture that on


film is quite amazing. And Colin's remarkable video reveals yet more


about this shy creature. This is wonderful because you can see a rid


of falls under here. These ourselves which reflect light, emitting


globe which can attract predators. globe which can attract predators.


If they are swimming in the sea, these cells will block out their


silhouettes so they become almost invisible. This is really wonderful.


Wonderful footage. And all of this is filmed just our here. Absolutely


brilliant. Incredible to think that brilliant. Incredible to think that


we have native octopus patrolling the sea bed just off Chesil Beach.


As most of us will never see one in the wild, I've come to the sea life


centre in Weymouth to meet a particularly friendly octopus that


will soon be on show to the public. Luckily I get to go behind the


scenes. Meeting me is chief octopus Wrangler Phil. In the heart of the


building, here are the tanks where Phil looks after the octopus. Like


me, he has found each octopus has its own distinct personality, and


his newest one is very friendly. So this is my newest arrival. He's very


grabby, especially for such a young octopus. It normally takes a couple


of months to build up this sort of trust between a keeper and an


octopus, but she loves it! Not worried about folding up or throwing


lots of water at us, as you can see! What do you love about them?


Normally you expect them to run away but just so loving. From the very


first time, love at first sight, almost! Just put a finger in and


they grabbed you! Ha-ha! So you feel she knows you?


Absolutely. Some of them will only come up every now and then for food


but this girl likes to squirt all of the time. She tends to squirt until


I come back so a lot of the time I'll be here for 20, 30 minutes till


she is happy and I can leave her. You can see by her colour at the


what we're doing. If she was scared what we're doing. If she was scared


or worried, she would be a dark colour, like red or close to black,


but with their colours going on at the moment, you can tell she's


interested but not at all worried. Hey! She's absolutely amazing and it


really goes to show the range of personalities that naturally occur


in a species like this. Personality is something we think of being


distinctly human but this shows animals like sharks, octopus,


cuttlefish, they have distinct personalities that we can see and


test throughout their lifetimes. Leading Phil and his octopus behind,


it's time for me to return the specimens we caught in Plymouth


Sound. Octopus alula for a couple of years so it's time for these years


-- these guys to go back to sea. -- only live for a couple of years.


Time to go, little guys! I feel very privileged to work with these


beguiling creatures and I hope I've given you just a glimpse of why I


find these small animals with very big personalities so fascinating.


Fantastic pictures, weren't they? What is an octopus' favourite


Beatles macro song? I want to hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand!


See you next week! Next week, we take a closer look at the honey bee.


Is our sweet tooth threatening its future? We need them so much for


pollination, not just for ourselves and all the fruit and vegetables,


but all the flowers on our landscape and our nature. That's the primary


importance of them. Hello, I'm Riz Lateef
