An inquest into the death of 16-year old Paddy Dear heard how he'd been

:00:24.:00:27.

suffering from acute tonsillitis and blood poisoning.

A bright young rugby-mad teenager, Paddy Dear had his whole life ahead

of him. But his life was ended a year ago on a school trip to Wales.

:00:48.:00:52.

He left one o' of the classrooms to go to toilet, but never returned.

:00:53.:00:59.

The septicaemia has set in, causing confusion and disorientation and his

:01:00.:01:04.

body was found later at the bottom of these cliffs. Dale Fort has been

:01:05.:01:10.

used as a base for school field trips since the end of the Second

:01:11.:01:15.

World War. The centre's manager told the inquest students are warned of

:01:16.:01:21.

the danger of cliffs. The coroner recorded a narrative conclusion

:01:22.:01:29.

noting Paddy died of injuries after falling from height when having

:01:30.:01:40.

septicaemia. Fe with can take some pride that his name has help lower

:01:41.:01:46.

the number of deaths. The inquest is another step in the long grieving

:01:47.:01:50.

process for the family. They're hoping his legacy can live on and no

:01:51.:01:53.

other families have to go through what they have.

:01:54.:01:58.

A World War Two bomb found in north west London has now

:01:59.:02:01.

Specialist officers were brought into make it safe.

:02:02.:02:08.

Residents living near by are being allowed to return home.

:02:09.:02:13.

The parents of a six month old baby are challenging doctors in court

:02:14.:02:16.

Charlie Gard is receiving round the clock treatment

:02:17.:02:20.

at Great Ormond Street hospital for a rare genetic condition.

:02:21.:02:25.

With no accepted cure for the disease, hospital bosses

:02:26.:02:28.

believe he should be allowed to die with dignity.

:02:29.:02:30.

But his parents want to take their son to America

:02:31.:02:32.

There's been a warning to people living in Hertfordshire

:02:33.:02:38.

after a dozen women had their drinks spiked on nights out.

:02:39.:02:41.

One woman from Harlow says she no longer feels safe after it

:02:42.:02:44.

Police are advising everyone not just women to be extra vigilant in

:02:45.:03:03.

the town centre. By day an is historic town, but after dark,

:03:04.:03:14.

Hertford has a thriving night life. It is a place Carrie says she

:03:15.:03:20.

doesn't feel socialising in again, a night out ended after she took a

:03:21.:03:24.

slip from her drink. She is convinced it had been spiked. It was

:03:25.:03:32.

quite early in the evening, about 9pm if that, having our first drink

:03:33.:03:37.

and chatting and then I stood up or stood back and just felt completely

:03:38.:03:44.

disownier Taited and -- disorientated and unbelievably

:03:45.:03:53.

unwell. The increasing number of suspected drink-spiking attacks has

:03:54.:04:00.

led the police to warn people the type of drugs are all designed to

:04:01.:04:05.

incapacitate. The consequences are dire. One would take it and collapse

:04:06.:04:11.

and die straightaway. What we are appealing for is people to be aware,

:04:12.:04:18.

be cautious around it. A test kit has been developed so people who

:04:19.:04:23.

suspect their drink may have been tampered with can check it. It part

:04:24.:04:26.

of a campaign called not in my drink. It is actually clever

:04:27.:04:32.

chemistry, it is pale yellow, you spot the drink on there and it

:04:33.:04:37.

changes orange or red and that identifies there is a drug present.

:04:38.:04:43.

Carrie's reported her suspected drink-spiking incident to police,

:04:44.:04:47.

but still feels wary going out and she is grateful her friend was there

:04:48.:04:51.

to help her get home. Without that, she believes things would have been

:04:52.:04:53.

a lot worse. A self-driving car is having

:04:54.:04:56.

its first major trial on our roads. The Japanese car maker Nissan hopes

:04:57.:04:59.

tests on the vehicle will reassure drivers that the technology

:05:00.:05:02.

can work here. Here's our Transport

:05:03.:05:03.

Correspondent Tom Edwards. Look - no hands! This is a

:05:04.:05:19.

self-driving car. Radars, lasers and cameras mean the car can drive

:05:20.:05:25.

itself. It is safe? Yes. No problem. Very stable. It is being trialled in

:05:26.:05:31.

east London and we were give an 20-minute spin. Why have you come to

:05:32.:05:37.

London? Because the British Government are proactive to

:05:38.:05:42.

accelerate this technology to improve the traffic. 90% of traffic

:05:43.:05:50.

accidents are caused by human errors and a machine will never be

:05:51.:05:54.

distracted. It is not intelligent enough yet, but we are confident we

:05:55.:05:57.

can improve the performance of the system. Our journey was not without

:05:58.:06:02.

incident. Here the driver had to take over from the computer. Didn't

:06:03.:06:09.

see that. This is not the expected vehicle. There are lots of hurdles

:06:10.:06:17.

ahead for self-driving cars, not least perception and legislation,

:06:18.:06:21.

but the capital is involved in testing this new technology.

:06:22.:06:26.

That's it for now from me, but lets find out what the weather's

:06:27.:06:29.

It is looking lively at the moment. There is a cluster of thunder storms

:06:30.:06:38.

just to the west of London. They should clear away in the next hour

:06:39.:06:42.

or so and once they do, they're going to continue to push east and

:06:43.:06:45.

we start off Saturday on a beautiful note. A lot of sunshine. Saturday

:06:46.:06:51.

the best of the two days. Clouding over from the west into the

:06:52.:06:54.

afternoon. But with the sun and temperatures up to 12 degrees and

:06:55.:06:59.

lighter winds, it will feel better. Make the most of Saturday if you

:07:00.:07:04.

can. Sunday looks like a real stinker. If you're sat on the

:07:05.:07:08.

touchline watching the kids play football first thing, you will need

:07:09.:07:16.

your waterproofs. It will be wet and windy. Some sunshine in the

:07:17.:07:23.

afternoon. Top temperatures on Sunday around 11 degrees. Here is

:07:24.:07:29.

the weekend outlook and Jay has more details. Good night.

:07:30.:07:40.

Good evening, mixed fortunes this weekend. Today we saw a fair share

:07:41.:07:46.

of rain. This is the view one of our weather watchers in Doncaster. Not

:07:47.:07:50.

particularly inspiring. This weekend there will be some rain, but some of

:07:51.:07:56.

us will get away with a dry start. This is the satellite and a lovely

:07:57.:08:03.

day in northern Scotland. But cloud and rain and thunder and lightning

:08:04.:08:12.

in this area. Our main area of rain is stuck across Northern Ireland and

:08:13.:08:18.

Scotland. Some snow over higher ground. And windy. Four or five

:08:19.:08:25.

degrees in Glasgow and Belfast. Seven or eight for Cardiff and

:08:26.:08:30.

London. In the morning a miserable start in the east of Scotland with a

:08:31.:08:35.

cold wind. A lot of cloud and rain.

:08:36.:08:36.
