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


end, oranges that end. Plymouth Argyle say giving


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.


And no, here is Izzie Anson, to play as oats with her song Storms. -- to


play as out. # I can see why you would just walk

baby # But you never leave me


# You will always stay # I have no reason to love you, baby


# But when I close my eyes your voice

doesn't know what love is # I never thought I would understand


but now I know why storms are named after men
