when the baby is inside the uterus so what happens then in adult life
has a big impact because the baby can't respond because its programmed

the police in Jersey say the only way to close down an illegal taxi
service would be to join forces It follows comments made
by an officer which were caught He told one of the town's parking
marshalls it would take a serious accident for the police to tackle
the issue of Jersey Lifts. Chris Harrison has been talking to
the Jersey Taxi Drivers Association about their frustration -

by the police officers on camera has been described as unfortunate,
the police admit they're struggling to tackle Jersey Lifts saying...

we had residents who have needs, they have the way to run available

that's then we have to reach out and resolve the problems for them.
Without this facility, we should be adding to a growing population with
need in regards to elderly care. The price of a driving licence
in Jersey is increasing. The new charges that come

sacrifice from wall commemoration. Over the past hundred and 50 years,
lots of people have given their lives already been injured in

us more about how to For some youngsters in Cornwall,
football isn't just a kickabout in the park -
it's an attempt to steer them away from drink and drugs
and stop them fighting. PL Kicks is a nationwide
community programme backed Since 2008, Plymouth Argyle has been
running it in the city, and says it's helped to cut crime
and anti-social behaviour The club is now taking
the idea to some of the more From Redruth, here's
Denis Nightingale. Liam has been excluded from two
schools and been in trouble I'd be getting into fights
and having trouble around the There's quite a lot of trouble
around here all the time. Redruth North used to have
a dreadful reputation for crime and Hard work by local people means life
for youngsters is much Can we have greens that

youngsters something to do I'll take one example
of an estate where crime A total of 80 girls and boys have
taken part in the sessions since last November. I have come here to
stop myself from arguing and fighting. When you play football you
can take your stress out on the ball instead of other people. Confident
that PL Kicks is a winner, Plymouth Argyle and I looking for financial
backing to spread it across Cornwall.
A centre which cares for unwanted Exmoor ponies
and saves them from slaughter says it may have to close in
The Exmoor Pony Centre is launching a public fund raising
campaign and is warning that if it has to close ponies on the moor may
If it weren't for this sanctuary, these Exmoor ponies would probably
have ended up being slaughtered for horse meat. But now the future of
this place is under threat as it struggles to make ends meet. It is
critical at the moment because of a lack of funds. We are finding
ourselves in a position where we will have two cores at the end of
the summer if we can't find the extra income. The Domesday book has
references to ponies on Exmoor at the 11th century. They have had a
chequered history, apparently almost becoming extinct in World War II
when soldiers used them for target practice. And it is the gun that
probably would have been the feed for these ponies. The leaders who
have no use for male falls often slaughtered them explore alternative
home can be found. This centre on the edge of Exmoor has been that
alternative home for around 300 ponies since it opened 11 years ago.
Here the team them and move them on new owners. I adore them. Volunteers
who support the police say they fear for the future of unwanted Exmoor
are poorly is that this place is forced to shut down. To see the
ponies from falls grow into adults and go on and have a future, it is
fantastic. There are no plans to kill these ponies, even if this
place does cause. The centre says they will be taken care of somehow.
But there will be no new intake. Survival of the next generation is
uncertain. How you would feel about running
16.64 miles every day, Well, that's what two Royal Marines
from the South West are doing as part of the 1664
Global Challenge. as the year the Royal Marines were
formed. Today was Day 1, and they
were setting off from We sent our reporter Heidi Davey
along to meet the team. The all-important team fulfil before
the challenge gets underway, but for these two corporals, today is the
start of 100 consecutive days running a very precise 16.64 miles.
Aiming to run at the right place, at a reasonable pace for endurance.
Just been resting the last week or so, trying to stay injury free. You
are feeling confident? Yes. I feel all day. I want to get Day one out
of the way. I am going to take each day at a time. I don't think that
far ahead. Every day just keep plodding along. What flew so I will
get on until the end. Although getting across to the startling was
their first hurdle. We have set off from the Mayflower steps, we are no
en route to Torpoint for the starting line. Once on dry land it
was time to start running. Left, Right, left, right. 1664, stuffing
to do with the beer, it is the Royal Marines were formed. -- it is
nothing to do with the bear. Their journey will take them across
the region over the next few days raising funds for the Royal Marines
charity. At Exeter Chiefs they will run the
match ball into the stadium on Saturday. After Sunday, they will
start heading north before hopefully ending at Buckingham Palace in
August. But tonight they will be enjoying a well earned rest.
A very well earned rest by the look of it.
Now, many artists spend years of hard work trying to make it
But for one 16-year-old from Plymouth, it's
Four months ago Izzie Anson sent this demo of herself singing
to the Radio Devon programme BBC Introducing.
Well, since then Izzie has been chosen by BBC Radio
2's Jo Whiley to play Cheltenham Jazz Festival tomorrow.
What an amazing voice. What is it about a jazz in particular that you
like? I have always loved that. Growing up listening to Nina Simone,
anyway nice, Ella Fitzgerald. Your voice sounds nicer -- your voice
sounds older than your years. How did this southern road to
stardom begin? Where did they pick up on your talents? BBC introducing
picked up on my talent at the end of last year. I sent one of my tracks
into ABC introducing and they played it on Round Table. And it got a good
response which I was not expecting. And you have already recorded out in
Nashville, how did that come about? Last year I was just putting covers
up on Facebook and YouTube, and my dad knows someone who is a producer
in national, and I didn't think he'd be interested, because I didn't
think they were very good, and he messaged me, and said that they want
to come out to National. But so that started. I went out and recorded the
songs which are on my EP. You are currently juggling all of this with
studying for GCSEs. How are you managing that workload? It is a
lots. But my family are very supportive, helping me gets to all
my gigs. It is a busy time of year for you. What do you hope to achieve
in the future? Just writing music, that is all I really want to do. And
this big opportunity tomorrow with the Cheltenham Festival, how are you
viewing ahead of that? Very nervous but really excited. I really hope it
goes well. Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you again at
the end of the programme. Thank you. And before that let us get the
weather forecast. There has been hailstorms, sleet, snow, freezing
cold, so where better to put David Dunn on the roof?
I am not coming up here again, it is freezing, but a smashing view. We
are up on the roof. A lovely view of Plymouth Sound. Good visibility
today. Visibility has been excellent because of the Arctic area, the
clean air, not just here, but all around the course of Devon we have
had good views. You can see the show workload in the
distance. There have been showers, not every where, but some have been
intense. Over high ground they have been falling as sleet, maybe even
snow. We had some sunshine and Plymouth.
The showers only turning up this afternoon. There is one behind the
camera man that looks like it'll had our way. Let us look at what is
happening the next 24-hour is. We have had some good temperatures.
Thomas has been the warmest place in the country today with 12 degrees.
Elsewhere, temperatures no more than or 9 degrees. The other thing is
just who clean the air is. These are the visibility is that we have seen
today, well over 30 kilometres for most of our locations, and that fine
clear area continues, but it also brings the risk of wintry showers.
This is Exmoor from earlier. They fear a dusting of snow. Tomorrow,
there will be more frost overnight. There will be showers. Hopefully
sunshine in between. Like we have seen today. Hopefully it will feel a
that is warmer. You can see the extent of the cloud, it is speckled
cloud, and that is the show workload that we are seeing this evening. The
area of high pressure is in the middle of the Atlantic, northerly
winds tonight and tomorrow morning. Relatively cold wind until later in
the week. Then we start to see a change to milder air. There is the
satellite picture in more detail. More to come overnight. That will
feed away in the second half of the night. Still -- overnight
temperatures close to freezing. Tomorrow a chance of a shower, and a
chance of good sunshine to enjoy. Along the course we will see the
best of the temperatures, nine, ten, even 11 or 12. Largely dry
conditions. The chance of if you passing showers.
Winds are from the north or north-west.
Can I come inside no, please? Go on, then. Thank you. And thank
you for joining all of us on Spotlight tonight.
