we are back with the late news at 11pm, now on BBC One it's time

:00:00.:00:12.

Police are tonight investigating the unexplained deaths

:00:13.:00:16.

The two bodies were found at a property in St Austell.

:00:17.:00:21.

Spotlight's Eleanor Parkinson has the latest.

:00:22.:00:24.

The bodies of the two men were found in a rented flat in this building

:00:25.:00:28.

The police haven't revealed how they died but say

:00:29.:00:31.

Officers from Plymouth have been drafted in,

:00:32.:00:36.

along with a forensic team and a number of fire officers.

:00:37.:00:41.

This block of flats has been sealed off all day while officers

:00:42.:00:44.

search around the building and inside the property.

:00:45.:00:51.

The police say the two men who died are a 31-year-old local man

:00:52.:00:54.

and a 22-year-old man originally from Plymouth.

:00:55.:00:55.

They say another man arrested at the scene on suspicion

:00:56.:00:58.

of burglary is not thought to have anything to do with the deaths.

:00:59.:01:01.

Obviously I don't know exactly what's happened but, no,

:01:02.:01:05.

it's appalling that something like this can happen.

:01:06.:01:09.

The results of postmortem examinations are expected tomorrow

:01:10.:01:15.

but the Fire Brigade have already ruled out the possibility

:01:16.:01:17.

There are hopes that a man from Torquay shot in the head

:01:18.:01:24.

during an attempted robbery in Antigua could be flown back

:01:25.:01:26.

Chris Tester was attacked at his parents' restaurant

:01:27.:01:33.

The 37-year-old was due to have an operation today.

:01:34.:01:37.

An appeal to fly him home has raised almost ?70,000.

:01:38.:01:43.

An investigation has been launched after a pilot briefly lost control

:01:44.:01:45.

Ice built up on an Aurigny flight from Guernsey to Manchester, causing

:01:46.:01:55.

It happened on the 21st of December as the aircraft was climbing.

:01:56.:01:59.

The flight returned safely to Guernsey.

:02:00.:02:01.

The Bishop of Exeter says Exeter Cathedral is moving forward,

:02:02.:02:08.

after a scathing report found "widespread feelings of discontent"

:02:09.:02:10.

The Visitation, chaired by a retired High Court judge, was commissioned

:02:11.:02:17.

by Bishop Robert Atwell soon after he took office.

:02:18.:02:23.

The Christmas market is vital for many people to buy presents

:02:24.:02:26.

but the rental income it brings in boosts Exeter

:02:27.:02:29.

It's got 81 staff and an upkeep of ?1.5 million a year.

:02:30.:02:37.

The Visitation found no major legacies and a ?4 million repair

:02:38.:02:40.

And we are delighted to be undamaged and open.

:02:41.:02:47.

The report also found widespread feelings

:02:48.:02:50.

of discontent with the Dean, the Very Reverend Jonathan Draper.

:02:51.:02:55.

He was criticised for a lack of spiritual leadership and pastoral

:02:56.:03:07.

care which was said to emanate from him.

:03:08.:03:09.

The Bishop and the Dean have promised to work together to find

:03:10.:03:12.

a way forward and we're told that so far that is working.

:03:13.:03:15.

There has been a real sense of people coming together at every

:03:16.:03:17.

level in the Cathedral's life, volunteers, people on the cathedral

:03:18.:03:20.

staff, the various congregations, and there's a real sense

:03:21.:03:22.

of camaraderie and teamwork, and that has released people's

:03:23.:03:25.

energies and there's a real sense of a common purpose with a common

:03:26.:03:28.

vision, and that's the thing which gives me much encouragement.

:03:29.:03:34.

Bishop Robert wants a progress report from the chair

:03:35.:03:36.

of the Cathedral Council, which governs the

:03:37.:03:38.

The RSCPA has been called, after undercover filming at a dairy

:03:39.:03:47.

farm in Somerset showed cows and calves being punched and kicked.

:03:48.:03:51.

The footage was gathered by the Animal Equality welfare charity.

:03:52.:03:53.

The owner of the farm says he was appalled when he saw the film

:03:54.:03:57.

and has now sacked the farmhand shown hitting the animals.

:03:58.:04:02.

More than 6000 litres of Guernsey milk has been poured down the drain

:04:03.:04:05.

on the Channel Islands, after Christmas sales failed to meet

:04:06.:04:07.

expectations following a drop in demand compared to last year.

:04:08.:04:14.

The discarded milk has a market value of around ?3000.

:04:15.:04:18.

A surfer from Cornwall has been describing how he was crushed under

:04:19.:04:21.

tonnes of water at a big wave competition in Portugal.

:04:22.:04:29.

Tom Butler was in a World Surf League event

:04:30.:04:31.

He was taken to hospital where he was treated

:04:32.:04:35.

for a split ear, bruised ribs and a suspected lung injury.

:04:36.:04:39.

As I landed and fell I slapped the water really hard and I had

:04:40.:04:42.

an outstretched arm so then that left all my rib cage exposed

:04:43.:04:48.

to the water and I slapped really hard and hit basically my ribs

:04:49.:04:51.

and my lungs and that knocked all the wind out of me.

:04:52.:04:54.

A dog charity in Devon is calling for people to stop bringing rescue

:04:55.:04:58.

The founder of K9 Focus says the growing number of dogs

:04:59.:05:01.

being brought in from Europe is making an existing

:05:02.:05:04.

Spotlight's North Devon reporter, Andrea Ormsby, has the story.

:05:05.:05:12.

Lynne Hall's rescue charity, K9 Focus, is asked by dog pounds

:05:13.:05:16.

to take at least 30 dogs, with another five to seven

:05:17.:05:19.

We have more dogs coming in that are abandoned in this country.

:05:20.:05:28.

We have a lack of funds and on top of it we have the problem of dogs

:05:29.:05:32.

coming in from abroad, which seems to have doubled

:05:33.:05:34.

from previous years, and I don't know where we're

:05:35.:05:37.

We just cannot offer homes to all these dogs.

:05:38.:05:44.

Des and Penny Matthews got their two rescue dogs from abroad.

:05:45.:05:46.

We do understand in this country there is lots of dogs but they do

:05:47.:05:50.

have a better life than these type of dogs in Hungary.

:05:51.:05:53.

You know, they have nowhere to go, so if they're not put out

:05:54.:05:56.

for fostering and somebody adopts them then, you know,

:05:57.:05:58.

I think what people don't realise is that in this country we're

:05:59.:06:03.

putting a dog to sleep every two hours and we just don't

:06:04.:06:06.

have the homes for them, so that every dog that comes in,

:06:07.:06:09.

one of our dogs here is actually being put to sleep.

:06:10.:06:15.

This dog's ears and tail were cut off when she was in Lithuania

:06:16.:06:23.

and after six months in K9 Focus kennels she still has no home.

:06:24.:06:26.

A grey seal pup found close to death on Jersey's north coast has been

:06:27.:06:30.

flown to Guernsey to be looked after in a special facility.

:06:31.:06:35.

The three-week-old pup was found on Bonne Nuit Bay on Tuesday

:06:36.:06:38.

and will now spend the New Year with the GSPCA.

:06:39.:06:43.

The Channel Islands marine rescue team says lifting him from the beach

:06:44.:06:46.

was a life-saving operation as he was undernourished

:06:47.:06:48.

and will need treatment in the months ahead.

:06:49.:06:51.

Time for the weather now - here's Dan with the forecast.

:06:52.:07:00.

It is turning cloudier towards the close of the year. With more breeze

:07:01.:07:07.

around the cloud should disperse more readily. Some health likely in

:07:08.:07:15.

the West. Milder night than recently, we could see some frost in

:07:16.:07:19.

the East where there are clear patches. Tomorrow a lot cloudier

:07:20.:07:23.

than today, we could see spots of drizzle the air. Brighter spells

:07:24.:07:28.

further east and despite these numbers being a degree or two up on

:07:29.:07:35.

today it won't be anywhere, with a lack of sunshine and the breeze. It

:07:36.:07:39.

stays rather cloudy for New Year's Eve, a band of rain pushing through

:07:40.:07:45.

early on New Year's Day, then colder and brighter.

:07:46.:07:48.

I'll be back with more from the Spotlight newsroom

:07:49.:07:50.

I hope you can join me for that. In the meantime, have a very good

:07:51.:07:56.

evening. Temperatures have dropped away

:07:57.:08:19.

shortly and we have seen some fog, particularly through the Midlands.

:08:20.:08:25.

We do have some clout drifting in from the west. By the end of the

:08:26.:08:31.

night, towards the East Midlands as well. Further north, more of a

:08:32.:08:34.

breeze from the south-west, bringing in a weather front. Keeping the

:08:35.:08:40.

temperatures at seven or 8 degrees. Freezing or just below to the

:08:41.:08:44.

south-east corner. Fog will live to low cloud and generally speaking a

:08:45.:08:49.

lot more cloud than we saw today. Northern Scotland is the focal point

:08:50.:08:53.

for wet and windy weather. Confined to the north and west of Scotland

:08:54.:08:56.

where temperatures

:08:57.:08:57.
