Good evening. for the news where you are.

:00:09.:00:10.

There's a warning tonight about the use of glue traps to catch

:00:11.:00:13.

pests after two owls became stuck in them.

:00:14.:00:15.

The animals are being cared for at the West Hatch

:00:16.:00:18.

This one was unable to move its wings and wouldn't have survived.

:00:19.:00:23.

The RSPCA says glue traps cause unnecessary suffering to pests

:00:24.:00:27.

The charity is urging people not to use them.

:00:28.:00:33.

His primary wing feathers were stuck into his own flanks here.

:00:34.:00:36.

He had quite a few feathers missing on

:00:37.:00:38.

Without us intervening and actually washing the

:00:39.:00:42.

glue off, there is no way he would ever have flown again,

:00:43.:00:45.

so he would have slowly starved to death or died

:00:46.:00:49.

It's been a busy day on some of our roads,

:00:50.:00:54.

as people make the most of the Easter break, but two years

:00:55.:00:57.

through Bodmin Moor isn't quite over yet.

:00:58.:01:00.

It had been hoped work at Temple would be completed by today,

:01:01.:01:03.

but Cornwall Council says the problems won't continue

:01:04.:01:06.

It's been said that it's the only stretch of single carriageway

:01:07.:01:12.

on an A-road between Scotland and Cornwall.

:01:13.:01:17.

We have been promised that it will be open in time for the main

:01:18.:01:20.

holidays in the summer, which is, you know, good news.

:01:21.:01:22.

It just would have been great news if it was open today.

:01:23.:01:27.

About 2,000 people have turned out in one town in Devon

:01:28.:01:29.

as people across the South West have taken part in traditional

:01:30.:01:32.

Good Friday processions through the streets.

:01:33.:01:34.

Early Christians in Jerusalem would walk what they believed

:01:35.:01:37.

was Jesus' final journey carrying the cross.

:01:38.:01:39.

Many worshippers now act out their own Easter

:01:40.:01:42.

stories in towns and cities as Harriet Bradshaw

:01:43.:01:44.

A brutal story told without shying away from the drama of betrayal,

:01:45.:01:51.

We try to make it realistic enough for people to get a

:01:52.:01:56.

good sense of it, to be moved by it, but not too realistic that they are

:01:57.:02:00.

It was estimated a couple of thousand were

:02:01.:02:04.

in the crowd, with about 100 costumed actors and 70 crew.

:02:05.:02:09.

And at the heart of a tale that is centuries

:02:10.:02:16.

old, it was a young actor who took on the role of Jesus.

:02:17.:02:22.

Just like when you go on the stage in any other

:02:23.:02:25.

production, you do get that stage fright, when you see so many people

:02:26.:02:28.

before you. But it does give a sense

:02:29.:02:30.

of purpose to the way you were acting.

:02:31.:02:32.

Suddenly, you realised the meaning behind the words you were

:02:33.:02:34.

saying, so in a way, it sort of emboldened you, gave

:02:35.:02:37.

you confidence and an understanding of how everything fitted together.

:02:38.:02:40.

Thought to be the first Passion play for the town in living

:02:41.:02:43.

memory, but a tradition that could continue.

:02:44.:02:46.

Everybody was a very good actor, I thought.

:02:47.:02:50.

I liked about the play, when the guy screamed when he

:02:51.:02:54.

got pricked by the sword in his cheek.

:02:55.:02:57.

I thought it was quite powerful, and nice that

:02:58.:03:00.

I thought that the last bit was very well done, and very emotional,

:03:01.:03:05.

And the tale of Jesus' death isn't without his resurrection,

:03:06.:03:11.

touching upon the theme of hope that will be celebrated on Easter Sunday.

:03:12.:03:20.

Born in Dorset he shot to fame predicting the results of football

:03:21.:03:26.

A bit of fun at the time, but octopuses are very intelligent,

:03:27.:03:31.

and John Ayres has been discovering there's now some proper research

:03:32.:03:34.

into their thought processes at an aquarium in Torquay.

:03:35.:03:38.

The point of dropping plastic bricks into this tank is to see if Octavia

:03:39.:03:41.

can find her way through to the food.

:03:42.:03:43.

The test is repeated, and each time, she gets quicker.

:03:44.:03:46.

She may not be as famous as Paul the Octopus,

:03:47.:03:49.

What I could not really grasp about Paul,

:03:50.:03:55.

the World Cup octopus, is how he could distinguish between the

:03:56.:03:57.

technicalities of the Netherlands team and the flamboyance of the

:03:58.:04:01.

Spanish, or indeed, how he was able to watch the matches under

:04:02.:04:04.

But the difference with this is that the testing is

:04:05.:04:10.

actually real, and they believe that octopuses have intelligence similar

:04:11.:04:15.

Student Meghan Davitt is carrying out research for her veterinary

:04:16.:04:20.

She is measuring how long it takes Octavia to work

:04:21.:04:25.

Two of the puzzles that I am using for the study,

:04:26.:04:30.

a simple one is clip-lock boxes and screw-top containers,

:04:31.:04:33.

so she really has to figure out how to get into these boxes in order to

:04:34.:04:37.

get her food, and then I will present these challenges a few

:04:38.:04:40.

weeks later to see if she has learned how to do it, and the time

:04:41.:04:43.

They are inquisitive, they can work things

:04:44.:04:46.

out if we give them puzzles and things.

:04:47.:04:48.

It is just things that they have developed in the wild to

:04:49.:04:51.

Obviously, they have got that, and we need to keep that busy

:04:52.:04:55.

Her ability to do these puzzles has been

:04:56.:04:59.

entertaining the crowds this Easter holiday.

:05:00.:05:01.

Meghan will be carrying out a number of research projects for

:05:02.:05:04.

these animals to help with her degree.

:05:05.:05:10.

Plymouth Argyle must wait for promotion from League Two

:05:11.:05:13.

after drawing against Portsmouth at Fratton Park late this afternoon.

:05:14.:05:16.

it did look like today was going to be the day.

:05:17.:05:28.

Plymouth Argyle knew a win today would secure promotion, as long as

:05:29.:05:34.

other results went their way. And they started well, after this flying

:05:35.:05:41.

header from Jake Jervis puts them in front. But Plymouth moved from

:05:42.:05:46.

Portsmouth piled on the pressure. Portsmouth piled on the pressure.

:05:47.:05:52.

Eventually, a goalkeeping error allowed Portsmouth to equalise. The

Green Army will have to keep the champagne on ice for now. The

Pilgrims need one point from four games to guarantee their place in

League 1. These are the other results today.

:06:11.:06:19.

Torquay United are now just four points from safety with two games to

of the BBC's News at 10. To think that this time last

weekend, temperatures were in the 20s. They got up to 25.5. Much

cooler across the country this weekend. And this headline is true

for the weather next week. That cool air stream from the north will

persist. The mild air tries to get in, but never really wins. What have

we got for the rest of today? The rain we had across Wales earlier

will move southwards, but once the rain reaches you, it will be much

lighter. Across many northern areas, the skies will clear up altogether.

:08:44.:08:48.

It will be a nippy night. Certainly
