Now on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:11.

There were scenes of jubilation at Home Park this afternoon

:00:12.:00:15.

as Plymouth Argyle sealed promotion with three games to spare.

:00:16.:00:18.

The Pilgrims went into the game knowing that just one point would be

:00:19.:00:22.

enough to guarantee League One football next season,

:00:23.:00:24.

but they completed the job in fine style, thrashing Newport 6-1.

:00:25.:00:27.

Andy Birkett got in amongst the celebrations.

:00:28.:00:32.

Six long seasons of English football English football sports here.

:00:33.:00:38.

The administration, the heartbreak of

:00:39.:00:40.

And I've seen promotions and these boys went

:00:41.:00:53.

to Wembley last season, disappointment but now, absolutely

:00:54.:00:55.

I think I was more excited than the boys, actually.

:00:56.:00:59.

Six years, and now we're finally out!

:01:00.:01:12.

We are now ten minutes after the match and no supporters

:01:13.:01:14.

Still around 15,000 here in the stand.

:01:15.:01:17.

Applauding the players and the manager, who's come back out

:01:18.:01:19.

These fans will keep the faith up at Wembley.

:01:20.:01:23.

to seal that manner, I think is just moving

:01:24.:01:29.

because the fans have been waiting for so long and it's great

:01:30.:01:32.

they've put in a performance like that.

:01:33.:01:34.

Massive club here and we're going into league one now.

:01:35.:01:39.

Andy Birkett reporting from Home Park.

:01:40.:01:45.

Well, Exeter city's promotion push suffered a minor setback today

:01:46.:01:48.

with a defeat against Cambridge United.

:01:49.:01:50.

Meanwhile, Torquay United had to beat Braintree Town

:01:51.:01:51.

to keep their National League survival hopes alive.

:01:52.:01:53.

There's celebrations as well there before this match, the chances of

:01:54.:02:09.

Torquay avoiding relegation looks very slim but this win against

:02:10.:02:13.

fellow relegation strugglers Braintree town has given them a

:02:14.:02:17.

fighting chance of staying in the National League. It started badly

:02:18.:02:21.

with Manny Parry putting Braintree in front after just eight minutes,

:02:22.:02:26.

took united were looking very nervous but then, Brett Williams had

:02:27.:02:30.

a goal disallowed for offside but that seems to fire took united up.

:02:31.:02:35.

Minutes later, he got an equaliser, and puts them in front in the second

:02:36.:02:41.

half and although it was very nervy for the last half-hour, in the end,

:02:42.:02:44.

it was Jordan league within late goal and as you can imagine, fans

:02:45.:02:52.

are delighted. That was amazing. Taking it to the last game, it was

:02:53.:02:58.

brilliant. We did it. The great escape is on. Fantastic, wonderful.

:02:59.:03:04.

Best thing that happens to us. It's probably shouldn't have been

:03:05.:03:07.

disallowed but it sparked is a little bit and great credit to the

:03:08.:03:11.

last comeback and equalised so soon after, otherwise it might have

:03:12.:03:15.

minutes of afternoon. This victory was hugely important for took united

:03:16.:03:19.

but they are no means out of the woods. They have to play Dover

:03:20.:03:25.

athletic and they need wins in the those games but compared to what it

:03:26.:03:29.

was like before today, there really is a chance of the great escape.

:03:30.:03:30.

there really is a chance of the great escape.

:03:31.:03:33.

Fishermen in the Southwest are being praised for the work

:03:34.:03:35.

they're doing to help clean up our seas.

:03:36.:03:37.

Marine litter and discarded fishing gear has been blamed for killing

:03:38.:03:40.

But now the fishermen are working with charities and other industries

:03:41.:03:45.

to tackle the problem as Eleanor Parkinson reports.

:03:46.:03:54.

These fishermen are not just hauling up fish.

:03:55.:03:56.

They have to sift through their catch to get rid of the rubbish

:03:57.:04:00.

but they're not throwing it back overboard.

:04:01.:04:02.

Instead, they put it in special sacks they've been given

:04:03.:04:04.

and they bring it all back to port to put in a dedicated skip.

:04:05.:04:07.

Fish isn't the only thing we catch, unfortunately, at sea.

:04:08.:04:10.

We're catching a lot of plastic bags and mainly plastics.

:04:11.:04:12.

We bring in about two one-tonne bags every trip.

:04:13.:04:18.

I do a six-day trip and I bring to one-tonne bags a week.

:04:19.:04:21.

And these are the bags that we give the fishing boats.

:04:22.:04:23.

And if you look through the skip, you can find just about anything.

:04:24.:04:27.

The bags on the boats are provided by a project

:04:28.:04:30.

So whatever it is, whether it's a piece of old net,

:04:31.:04:35.

whether it's a rope, plastic, polythene sheet

:04:36.:04:38.

wrapped around their ropes, it's dangerous for them,

:04:39.:04:42.

it's dangerous to be left in the sea, it's not good

:04:43.:04:45.

for the marine environment and they are more than

:04:46.:04:47.

The fishermen are also working hard to prevent ghost gear,

:04:48.:04:52.

They drown, they starve and they die of infection.

:04:53.:05:01.

It is of particular danger to seals, because they really highly

:05:02.:05:05.

intelligent mammals that are very curious.

:05:06.:05:08.

So they see a bit of ghost gear floating in a water

:05:09.:05:18.

So they swim over it, around it, under its, through it.

:05:19.:05:21.

And it's the through age that gets them into trouble.

:05:22.:05:23.

These nylon nets won't be thrown away.

:05:24.:05:25.

They be sent to a factory in Eastern Europe, where they'll be

:05:26.:05:29.

And a Cornish company are using the recycled

:05:30.:05:33.

We make the range of swimwear and rash guards that

:05:34.:05:38.

are particularly aimed at active watersports use, either wearing them

:05:39.:05:41.

under wet suits or jumping around, moving in the water,

:05:42.:05:47.

so that our specific use of the recycled nylon yarn.

:05:48.:05:50.

In the south-west, attitudes to marine litter are changing

:05:51.:05:54.

but the threat still exists from other shows.

:05:55.:05:58.

Ghost gear is often brought up into our seas on the Gulf Stream.

:05:59.:06:01.

For the fishermen and the volunteers, their work continues.

:06:02.:06:05.

Now how do you fancy naming a a newborn horse?

:06:06.:06:07.

Now how do you fancy naming a newborn horse?

:06:08.:06:10.

Here she is - the first foal of the season born in the early

:06:11.:06:13.

hours of Easter Sunday at the Miniature Pony

:06:14.:06:15.

There's a competition to find her a name, and the theme

:06:16.:06:19.

The weather hasn't been bad at all over this Easter weekend,

:06:20.:06:25.

We did get a bit of sunshine today, but for most of us, it's been

:06:26.:06:34.

largely cloudy and tonight, a lot of that is cloud will start to break

:06:35.:06:37.

Any isolated showers die away and we'll see

:06:38.:06:40.

largely clear skies so

:06:41.:06:41.

it is going to be quite chilly night, temperatures could well get

:06:42.:06:44.

lower than this in some sheltered approval spots.

:06:45.:06:51.

That does mean a chilly but bright starts tomorrow, with more sunshine

:06:52.:06:58.

than many have seen this weekend. We'll see temperatures doing well as

:06:59.:07:03.

well so a lot of sunshine, light wings, Fairweather cloud during the

:07:04.:07:07.

afternoon, some sparse hitting 14 or 15 degrees. Drive week by day,

:07:08.:07:14.

plenty of sunshine, by night it will be told with the return of frost.

:07:15.:07:20.

Plenty of good news today! Janine Jansen will bring you the latest

:07:21.:07:24.

news around 10:20pm tonight. Have a lovely evening.

:07:25.:07:42.

Hopefully you managed to enjoy some good weather this Easter. It has not

:07:43.:07:49.

been ideal but it has not been that bad. Pretty cold tonight. Sharp

:07:50.:07:54.

frost on the way in role areas and across northern parts. The skies are

:07:55.:07:57.

not clear just yet but they are starting to clear. By the end of the

:07:58.:08:08.

night, those temperatures will tumble across Scotland, maybe as low

:08:09.:08:14.

minus eight. No surprise this time of the year. We do get frost, but

:08:15.:08:18.

this could be even damaging. Tomorrow morning, it is looking

:08:19.:08:26.

sunny for most of us but the wind is light in the sun will

:08:27.:08:27.
