A Torquay man who was shot in the head in Antigua

:00:14.:00:15.

is being flown off the island for urgent medical treatment.

:00:16.:00:18.

Christopher Tester was seriously injured during an attempted robbery

:00:19.:00:21.

at his parents' restaurant on Christmas Day.

:00:22.:00:28.

An appeal has so far raised ?40,000 to try to get him back to the UK.

:00:29.:00:32.

A picture postcard paradise, but this idyllic beach-side

:00:33.:00:38.

restaurant became a crime scene as Chris and his parents

:00:39.:00:40.

were finishing up after serving customers on

:00:41.:00:42.

A masked armed robber held them at gunpoint and

:00:43.:00:51.

during the scuffle the 37-year-old was shot in the head.

:00:52.:00:53.

He has been in an induced coma ever since.

:00:54.:00:55.

Yes, it is true, mate, it is our Chris.

:00:56.:00:57.

Back home in Devon, friends at his local

:00:58.:00:59.

pub have been helping with the

:01:00.:01:01.

fundraising to get him urgent medical treatment as he didn't have

:01:02.:01:04.

I am led to believe the bullet went in under

:01:05.:01:12.

the left temple and exited under the right eye.

:01:13.:01:16.

They are very concerned about swelling of the

:01:17.:01:18.

brain and things like that but he's not well enough at this stage to be

:01:19.:01:24.

Enough has been donated to transfer him by

:01:25.:01:28.

helicopter to one of the nearby French islands.

:01:29.:01:33.

He was agitated yesterday so they have put him into a deeper

:01:34.:01:35.

The agitation apparently is a good sign because it means he was

:01:36.:01:42.

able to hear everything that was going on.

:01:43.:01:45.

Friends and family say Chris is a fighter but they all know the

:01:46.:01:48.

next 24 hours will be critical due to the serious nature of his

:01:49.:01:51.

Hundreds of people are still on Dartmoor tonight

:01:52.:01:58.

following an illegal rave which had to be broken up by police.

:01:59.:02:00.

Around a thousand people gathered near Bellever late last night.

:02:01.:02:03.

In sub-zero temperatures, there were fears for some revellers

:02:04.:02:05.

The police are concerned about safety.

:02:06.:02:29.

About 25 officers have been here all day, the

:02:30.:02:31.

We are living in a world that is grey if

:02:32.:02:40.

you cannot have fun and to us this fun so why is it made illegal?

:02:41.:02:44.

There have been objections to the noise.

:02:45.:02:50.

Local residents reporting it in the early hours.

:02:51.:02:55.

They have closed down voluntarily but I'm going to serve

:02:56.:03:00.

them a formal notice to ensure they cannot come back

:03:01.:03:03.

At its peak it is estimated 1000 were at the illegal rave, now

:03:04.:03:11.

they're worried for those who could get left behind.

:03:12.:03:15.

It was extremely cold last night and several of the

:03:16.:03:19.

people leaving the site have been saying they are really cold and

:03:20.:03:22.

struggling to warm up which is one of the reasons why our ambulance

:03:23.:03:26.

It is getting very cold here now, that's why the emergency services

:03:27.:03:35.

are going through the woods to look for people who are still on site and

:03:36.:03:38.

making sure no one goes unaccounted for.

:03:39.:03:40.

A search for the crew of a missing boat has been suspended in Cornwall

:03:41.:03:52.

following a distress call saying they were taking on water.

:03:53.:03:54.

lifeboat from Padstow, a coastguard team from Bude

:03:55.:03:57.

and a rescue helicopter carried out an extensive

:03:58.:03:59.

search for the Whisky One, but nothing was found.

:04:00.:04:01.

The vessel is still missing, and coastguards say they need

:04:02.:04:03.

to know if the crew made it to safety.

:04:04.:04:07.

Conditions last night were a lot worse than they are today and as you

:04:08.:04:10.

Our RNLI crew work on a voluntary basis, they put their lives at risk

:04:11.:04:17.

incident and it needs to be dealt with.

:04:18.:04:27.

A forty mile an hour speed limit could be brought

:04:28.:04:30.

in across Bodmin Moor to cut the amount of livestock deaths.

:04:31.:04:32.

Speed restrictions were previously introduced at Pensilva after 22

:04:33.:04:34.

ponies died from being hit by vehicles in just one year.

:04:35.:04:37.

It drastically cut the number of pony deaths prompting calls

:04:38.:04:42.

for a 40 mile an hour limit across the entire moor.

:04:43.:04:45.

Cornwall Council has costed a feasibility

:04:46.:04:46.

Time for the weather now, here's Sarah Farmer.

:04:47.:04:58.

Hello and a very good evening to you.

:04:59.:05:00.

We have a chilly end to a bright day and we stick with that

:05:01.:05:03.

chilly theme through the coming days.

:05:04.:05:08.

Tonight as well some patchy frost here and there and then mist

:05:09.:05:10.

and fog, especially in the east of the region where we have yellow

:05:11.:05:14.

weather warnings from the Met Office in place from midnight tonight to

:05:15.:05:26.

noon Wednesday, for the foggy conditions

:05:27.:05:28.

which could prove tricky on the

:05:29.:05:29.

Quite grey skies in the east tomorrow morning,

:05:30.:05:34.

Some of the fog could be stubborn and linger on to

:05:35.:05:37.

Some good brightness further west and in the

:05:38.:05:40.

Cloudy and cool conditions to take us up to the New Year.

:05:41.:05:46.

Good evening. It's a wintry night out there. Temperatures as low as

:05:47.:06:12.

minus three in one or two places already. For some of us the frost

:06:13.:06:16.

never shifted all day long. This shot was taken in Somerset. Tonight,

:06:17.:06:25.

some frost free places in Scotland. Fog will develop as we work through

:06:26.:06:30.

the night. It becomes wide spread. That's the issue in the morning,

:06:31.:06:33.

disruption certainly possible with a lot of people on the move. Check out

:06:34.:06:37.

local radio stations for the latest updates. Warnings in force from the

:06:38.:06:43.

Met Office. Parts of south-west Wales and England seeing early

:06:44.:06:46.

sunshine. Generally a lot of freezing fog around, which will be

:06:47.:06:50.

hard to shift through the day, as we'll see in a moment. The odd

:06:51.:06:54.

pocket of frost further north. Temperatures higher in Northern

:06:55.:06:57.

Ireland and Scotland. Drizzly rain across the western Highlands.
