Hello. First tonight, the vhctims of domestic abuse who fear for their

:00:00.:00:13.

future, as plans to shut wolen's refuges in Northamptonshire get

:00:14.:00:19.

under way. If it hadn't havd been for Refuge I probably wouldn't have

:00:20.:00:22.

been here now. He would havd found me and killed me. The region's

:00:23.:00:31.

leading transplant surgeons urge a change in the rules, to savd the

:00:32.:00:35.

lives of patients desperate for a new long. Coming up later, Team GB

:00:36.:00:40.

wins its first Paralympics ledal with a woman from Essex guiding the

:00:41.:00:45.

way. After six years of digging a field in Suffolk reveals its

:00:46.:00:46.

priceless past. We start tonight with the vhctims of

:00:47.:01:03.

domestic abuse, who fear for their future. Plans to shut women's

:01:04.:01:06.

refuges in Northamptonshire are considered. Two women are khlled

:01:07.:01:10.

every week by violent partndrs. And in this region police forces

:01:11.:01:12.

recorded more than 40,000 incidents of domestic abuse last year. The

:01:13.:01:17.

actual number, though, is bdlieved to be much, much higher. But safe

:01:18.:01:21.

havens for victims are expensive to run, and in the last four ydars

:01:22.:01:24.

according to one women's ch`rity, 12 out of 17 in this region have shut

:01:25.:01:30.

down. More are now under threat Louise Hubball has been to leet the

:01:31.:01:34.

women who say they'll have nowhere to go. For the past year, Lxnn has

:01:35.:01:43.

been living in a refuge in Northamptonshire. After 15 xears in

:01:44.:01:47.

a violent marriage, she fled her home and job. Now she can't believe

:01:48.:01:51.

refuges across the county could close. I was absolutely shocked I

:01:52.:01:58.

thought, God, what would happen if the refuge were to close, what would

:01:59.:02:01.

happen to all the other people, where would they go?

:02:02.:02:05.

Bed`and`breakfast and hostels, it would not be appropriate or safe.

:02:06.:02:09.

And what would happen to thd children? And what would happen to

:02:10.:02:17.

you? Well, I probably end up going back home. This drop`in centre

:02:18.:02:20.

continues to provide support victims who are now rebuilding their lives.

:02:21.:02:24.

Emma Barrett was kidnapped, beaten and raped by her former partner in

:02:25.:02:30.

Cambridge. She was moved to a refuge here. If it hadn't been for the

:02:31.:02:34.

refuge I probably wouldn't be here now because he would have found me

:02:35.:02:39.

and killed me, I think. Being taken to a place of safety by the police,

:02:40.:02:45.

it's invaluable. When I havd night terrors and things, which dhd

:02:46.:02:49.

happen, and flashbacks, thex were there, I'd wake up and they were

:02:50.:02:52.

there sitting next to me, m`king sure that I was OK. Refuges have

:02:53.:02:58.

shot across the region, although some have been replaced by services

:02:59.:03:03.

such as outreach support at home or at bed`and`breakfasts. But for some

:03:04.:03:08.

victims, both male and female, the safety and support refuges offer,

:03:09.:03:11.

sometimes hundreds of miles away from home, is vital. It's crucial

:03:12.:03:16.

that there is a network across the country, so we can transfer women

:03:17.:03:20.

and children quickly and imlediately to safety, in order to keep them

:03:21.:03:23.

safe and provide the support they need. The funding used to come

:03:24.:03:27.

through a government progralme, but that money is no longer avahlable. A

:03:28.:03:32.

former Northamptonshire MP, who supported their setup, says this is

:03:33.:03:36.

more damaging than simply rdmoving the county's 68 refuge placds. 0%

:03:37.:03:44.

of children and families affected by domestic violence are witnesses of

:03:45.:03:47.

the violence, and about half of those are affected by it. They need

:03:48.:03:52.

really detailed support and care. That is currently linked, that would

:03:53.:03:58.

go. Northamptonshire Police say reported cases of domestic violence

:03:59.:04:03.

have steadily risen, partly due to increased confidence in offhcers.

:04:04.:04:06.

It's a crime that one in fotr women will experience at some point during

:04:07.:04:11.

their lives. A short while `go I spoke to Robin Brown, who is the

:04:12.:04:15.

Cabinet member for adult social services on Northamptonshird County

:04:16.:04:17.

Council, and asked him, if refuges were shut down what would bd in

:04:18.:04:25.

their place? New services that will be provided. They will focus very

:04:26.:04:31.

much more on the outcome th`t should be achieved for the people tsing the

:04:32.:04:36.

services. Secondly, will not rely purely upon a refuge outcomd. The

:04:37.:04:43.

thing about the places in rdfuges, though, is that they are very

:04:44.:04:47.

different from any other service. They provide 24 hours a day security

:04:48.:04:54.

and protection. Any other txpe of service just can't do that. I agree

:04:55.:05:01.

with you. In fact, that's why some of those services will conthnue The

:05:02.:05:06.

comfort that I've got is knowing that between now and when the

:05:07.:05:09.

services are decommissioned, there will be in place, with the knowledge

:05:10.:05:16.

of the providers of services, a replacement service or repl`cements

:05:17.:05:19.

which will add value to what is currently being given. You `re

:05:20.:05:23.

talking about a lot of diffdrent services here, but can we jtst be

:05:24.:05:29.

clear? At the moment there `re five refuges in Northamptonshire. Are you

:05:30.:05:32.

telling me that after this review there will still be five refuges in

:05:33.:05:37.

Northamptonshire, where womdn or men or their children can go to be safe

:05:38.:05:46.

from violent partners? Whether there will be three, five, seven or more

:05:47.:05:50.

refuges is effectively what the purpose of this review is about All

:05:51.:05:54.

the charities are taking a view which is that they are going to lose

:05:55.:05:58.

all of their funding. They `re in a position of being able to bhd and

:05:59.:06:02.

are involved in discussions about contracts going forward. Thd outcome

:06:03.:06:06.

of that will be determined over the next three months. This revhew is

:06:07.:06:11.

all led by funding and the fact that the Government's giving your council

:06:12.:06:20.

less money to play with. Yot say it's about funding. Yes, it's about

:06:21.:06:24.

using public money in the rhght way. In truth, one of the bdnefits

:06:25.:06:29.

we've got of the way we've now got to work is on the basis of how we

:06:30.:06:36.

work with our partners. When we are putting services out for contract in

:06:37.:06:40.

the future, we make sure we are talking with all our partners, so

:06:41.:06:45.

we've not only used the mondy that we have but also the funding that is

:06:46.:06:48.

available from them as well. In truth, there could be more loney

:06:49.:06:55.

available not less. So you can guarantee me tonight that every

:06:56.:06:59.

vulnerable victim of domesthc abuse in Northamptonshire, after this

:07:00.:07:03.

review, will be just as well protected if not better? I would

:07:04.:07:08.

like to think that they will be better protected than they `re at

:07:09.:07:11.

the moment, because that's the reason why we're doing this review

:07:12.:07:14.

and why we are contracting the services in a different way.

:07:15.:07:21.

Councillor Robin Brown talkhng to me earlier. And there's a national 24

:07:22.:07:24.

hour domestic violence helpline you can call for free. The numbdr is

:07:25.:07:30.

0808 2000 247. A PHD graduate from Cambridge

:07:31.:07:33.

University has been named as one of the missing passengers on the

:07:34.:07:35.

Malaysia Airline flight that's disappeared on the way to Bdijing.

:07:36.:07:39.

Dr Yuchen Li, who's 27, recdntly got married and studied at Churchill

:07:40.:07:42.

College. His wife, who was not on the flight, is still studying there.

:07:43.:07:45.

The college says its sympathy goes to his family, friends and

:07:46.:07:49.

colleagues at this worrying time. A man has appeared in court charged

:07:50.:07:52.

with arson at a mosque in Mhlton Keynes. The fire was discovdred

:07:53.:07:55.

early on Saturday at the Islamic Centre in Manor Road in Bletchley.

:07:56.:08:01.

The building was empty at the time. 37`year`old Richard Bevington, from

:08:02.:08:03.

North Street, was remanded hn custody and is due before Axlesbury

:08:04.:08:12.

Crown Court in a week's timd. The process of getting a lung transplant

:08:13.:08:15.

is a "scandal", according to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. At the

:08:16.:08:19.

moment, one in three patients with the illness dies waiting for one.

:08:20.:08:24.

Only about 20% of lungs don`ted are in good enough condition to be used

:08:25.:08:28.

for transplants in the UK. Currently they're given to the nearest

:08:29.:08:31.

transplant centre, instead of the individuals who need them most. Now

:08:32.:08:36.

the region's leading transplant surgeons are backing the Cystic

:08:37.:08:39.

Fibrosis Trust, calling for a new national system based on nedd and

:08:40.:08:41.

not location. Dawn, Claire and her niece, all with

:08:42.:08:55.

cystic fibrosis. But one of them dies before a suitable lung donor

:08:56.:08:59.

can be found. Claire, from Peterborough, was just 26. Her

:09:00.:09:04.

mother says not enough people appreciate that organ donathon saves

:09:05.:09:09.

lives. It was really frustr`ting and devastating, watching once healthy

:09:10.:09:12.

and vibrant young lady deteriorating, knowing that she

:09:13.:09:18.

really wanted a second chance of life. Bernice, from Suffolk, was

:09:19.:09:23.

lucky. She once needed a st`irlift to get up to her bedroom, hdr life

:09:24.:09:28.

on hold until her operation last December. I can do things that three

:09:29.:09:31.

months ago I wouldn't have dreamt I could do. It's completely changed.

:09:32.:09:38.

Based near Cambridge, this hs the region's specialist centre for the

:09:39.:09:42.

lung transplants, one of five not # nationally. Here, they carrx out

:09:43.:09:46.

around 40 lung transplants ` year, with over half of their pathents

:09:47.:09:50.

surviving for more than fivd years. But one charity says the Bible rates

:09:51.:09:53.

would be even higher if pathents have the option of receiving a lung

:09:54.:09:58.

from anywhere in the UK. At the moment it will be offered to the

:09:59.:10:02.

closest transplant centre in that region. We want to ensure that this

:10:03.:10:07.

precious pool of lungs is dhrected to people in most urgent medical

:10:08.:10:12.

need. There is certainly an aspiration from NHS BT to try and

:10:13.:10:18.

establish a national system, which would certainly help those

:10:19.:10:21.

concerned. For this to happdn there needs to be investment in a number

:10:22.:10:27.

of different areas. Why hasn't that been achieved? There are a number of

:10:28.:10:32.

things which need to be resolved, a lot of them about determining how

:10:33.:10:36.

you structure a clinical system which will allow that to happen

:10:37.:10:42.

Dawn, from Essex, received her new lungs nine years ago. My life

:10:43.:10:45.

absolutely transformed. I'vd just come back from a holiday in Norway

:10:46.:10:51.

where I was skiing. I can rtn, I can cycle, my quality of life I live on

:10:52.:10:56.

my own and I'm fully independent. I love it. Not just a new lifd but the

:10:57.:11:03.

new quality of life. The NHS is reviewing its current systel of lung

:11:04.:11:06.

transplants, but that could take years. There a warning tonight that

:11:07.:11:12.

Northampton is at risk of sdvere flooding because the town doesn t

:11:13.:11:15.

have good enough flood defences The highest water levels were rdcorded

:11:16.:11:18.

in Easter 1998, when two people died. Now a senior civil engineer is

:11:19.:11:21.

claiming it could happen ag`in. Mike Cartwright reports. It is roads

:11:22.:11:31.

under water, Northampton 1988. Thousands of properties flooded two

:11:32.:11:35.

lives lost. Severe flooding that could be seen here again. That

:11:36.:11:40.

warning from Alan Haynes. It adds to the problem. It protects thd retail

:11:41.:11:45.

park, which is what they want, but it doesn't get storm water `way from

:11:46.:11:50.

the town. Council civil enghneer for more than 30 years, walls to keep

:11:51.:11:54.

rising water in could cause flooding elsewhere. What should have been

:11:55.:11:58.

done here was not the soluthon which was adopted in 1998, which was to

:11:59.:12:02.

raise the walls, but to put in some upstream storage to hold water back.

:12:03.:12:06.

The level here would be kept low and we would not have a problem with the

:12:07.:12:10.

storm drains. All we need to happen now with one major storm, as we got

:12:11.:12:14.

in 98, and the system is gohng to fail again. Northampton is growing.

:12:15.:12:19.

Another possible 26,000 new homes will increase the danger of surface

:12:20.:12:24.

water flooding, he says. Thd county council say they would identify

:12:25.:12:30.

problem areas. 16 years ago, far Cotton saw some of the worst

:12:31.:12:32.

flooding. This, the same street today. If river levels are high then

:12:33.:12:38.

surface water could back up. If it can't flow down through the drains,

:12:39.:12:44.

then we could see more floods. At the cafe on the corner, the owner

:12:45.:12:49.

remembers customers canoeing to the door. The fear of flood fear still

:12:50.:12:54.

very real. Just the mess and disruption to business, espdcially

:12:55.:12:58.

for the residents with bestsellers, they spent nearly a year cldaring up

:12:59.:13:03.

and trying to dry out the properties. It's a horrible

:13:04.:13:08.

disruption. Lives ruined, mhllions of pounds worth of damage. People

:13:09.:13:11.

here hope they will never sde a disaster like this again.

:13:12.:13:17.

from central government and ?3 million from private investment.

:13:18.:15:10.

I loved him so much and I knew what he wanted. I just had to be there

:15:11.:15:19.

for him. If it's approved, the assisted dying Bill would allow

:15:20.:15:23.

doctors to prescribe lethal dose of drugs to terminally ill pathents.

:15:24.:15:27.

Opponents say it's a dangerous step. But Heather, who now campaigns on

:15:28.:15:30.

assisted suicide, says the law has change. If you have to speak to two

:15:31.:15:36.

doctors beforehand and you have to be within six months of death, I

:15:37.:15:41.

think those safeguards are puite good. It is far better to t`lk about

:15:42.:15:47.

it before it happens than to have an inquest after the person has died.

:15:48.:16:00.

His brother, Philip, also dhed from Huntington's. The assisted bill is

:16:01.:16:04.

in its early stages in Parlhament. The Government has given MPs a free

:16:05.:16:07.

vote and the Care Minister backside. While many see the existing law as

:16:08.:16:12.

cruel, others believe it offers a crucial protection. The isste one

:16:13.:16:24.

literally of life and death. Lots to talk about from the weekend sport.

:16:25.:16:29.

Here to sum it all up for us is Phil Daley. Football, athletics `nd the

:16:30.:16:32.

Winter Olympics to come, but first Rugby Union. Northampton ard still

:16:33.:16:36.

on course for the treble after reaching the final of the LV Cup.

:16:37.:16:39.

Saints will play Exeter aftdr defeating Saracens. It was `n

:16:40.:16:42.

excellent weekend for Saints, with five of their players involved in

:16:43.:16:45.

England's win over Wales in the Six Nations Championships. It w`s a

:16:46.:16:52.

performance that gives Engl`nd great hope in the build`up to next year's

:16:53.:16:58.

Rugby World Cup. Once again, Northampton's players made ` big

:16:59.:17:02.

impact. Luther Burrell scordd his first try in four games. Cotrtney

:17:03.:17:07.

laws delivered one of his bdst performances. The man of thd match.

:17:08.:17:16.

We've grown a lot as a team during the year. It's been a long time

:17:17.:17:23.

coming to perform like that. It has still left opportunities out there,

:17:24.:17:28.

but the boys were great tod`y and we needed that win after the l`st

:17:29.:17:33.

couple of games. 204I was e`rlier, the club side were making their own

:17:34.:17:37.

headlines, reaching the fin`l of the LV Cup. Winning 26`7, setting up a

:17:38.:17:43.

date with extent `` to next weekend. They did it without their bhg names.

:17:44.:17:54.

England have beaten Wales hdre at Twickenham. It if Italy next for

:17:55.:18:02.

England. They need a big win and Ireland to slip up in Paris to win,

:18:03.:18:06.

while Saints will be favourhtes at Exeter.

:18:07.:18:09.

Late Kick Off returns tonight and they will be reflecting all the news

:18:10.:18:14.

from your football clubs, including weekend wins for Colchester,

:18:15.:18:17.

Stevenage, MK Dons and Peterborough in League One. They will also be

:18:18.:18:21.

looking into the battle to stay in the Football League for Northampton,

:18:22.:18:24.

and Cambridge and Luton's attempts to return. They lock horns hn the

:18:25.:18:28.

Conference tomorrow night. The Hatters are top by a distance and

:18:29.:18:31.

they see no reason why it couldn't be the start of a journey to the

:18:32.:18:39.

Premier League. I think we do have something special. What can we breed

:18:40.:18:45.

from that in getting promothon? It could also be something special

:18:46.:18:50.

We've got to harness this now and develop that. I do believe hf you

:18:51.:18:55.

compare us with a number of other clubs that have been at this level

:18:56.:18:59.

in the past, are actually in the Premier League and the Championship,

:19:00.:19:03.

going back to the original puestion, there is no bounds to what we can

:19:04.:19:06.

achieve. When it comes to vhsually impaired skiing, you're onlx as good

:19:07.:19:10.

as the person guiding you down. Team GB won its first skiing med`ls at

:19:11.:19:13.

the Winter Paralympic Games for 20 years when Jade Etherington

:19:14.:19:16.

collected silver on Saturdax, and guiding her all the way was Caroline

:19:17.:19:22.

Powell, from Basildon in Essex. Silver medals on show and bdaming

:19:23.:19:27.

smiles, too. Jade Etherington, from Lincolnshire, and her guide,

:19:28.:19:32.

Caroline Powell, from Basildon. They only started working togethdr last

:19:33.:19:35.

year, and on Saturday claimdd the first medal for Team GB in the

:19:36.:19:40.

Winter Paralympics in Sochi. Etherington suffers from gl`ucoma

:19:41.:19:44.

and has only around 5% vision. Her guide Powell is not only thdre to be

:19:45.:19:48.

followed, but gives her instructions about when and where to turn and

:19:49.:19:53.

when to go flat out. Saturd`y's downhill went to plan for the pair

:19:54.:19:58.

and could only be beaten by a four`time gold medallist. It crashed

:19:59.:20:02.

past the finish line didn't take the gloss off a fine performancd. We

:20:03.:20:06.

knew Sochi was the aim. We had to work really hard in the last few

:20:07.:20:10.

months and just keep our focus on what we wanted to do, and that was

:20:11.:20:15.

to win a medal. Me and Jade are very honest with each other. We just tell

:20:16.:20:19.

each other how we feel at the beginning of a race, the night

:20:20.:20:23.

before a race. It just works. Our relationship has just grown and

:20:24.:20:28.

grown ever since August, no, ever since April. It is great to finally

:20:29.:20:34.

know that it has paid off. @nd this morning in the Super`G compdtition,

:20:35.:20:38.

their medal collection got dven bigger. Despite dumping a g`te on

:20:39.:20:41.

their way down, the pair finished third to add some bronze to their

:20:42.:20:46.

necks. And it might not be the end of the celebrations yet. Thd pair

:20:47.:20:49.

have more events later in the week and will be hoping their julp for

:20:50.:20:56.

joy is for a gold medal this time. Fantastic stuff. Later in the week,

:20:57.:20:59.

we will look ahead to the ndw Formula One season and Red Bull s

:21:00.:21:02.

chances of gaining yet another title. Next, your chance to see for

:21:03.:21:12.

the first time priceless trdasures discovered in a field in Suffolk.

:21:13.:21:18.

Experts have been working in secret for the past six years. And today we

:21:19.:21:22.

were told what they have fotnd is of international importance. They say

:21:23.:21:25.

it confirms the site's reputation as the Village of the Kings. Kdvin

:21:26.:21:30.

Burch has more. They are incredibly small but their significancd is

:21:31.:21:35.

huge. There is gold, silver, bronze, coins and fragments of jewellery.

:21:36.:21:39.

They were found at Rendlesh`m, 4 centuries old and from a settlement

:21:40.:21:44.

which was once a place for the high ranking, including kings, and

:21:45.:21:48.

thriving international tradd. Sometimes it would have looked a bit

relationship between the arda and Rendlesham, which is where we

craftsmen who were making products for the rich and powerful. Sutton is

southern. Hoo is Hill. We are ready for it. I've always known that one

:23:17.:23:23.

day this kind of fine would be established. The treasures feature

:23:24.:23:27.

in a new exhibition at Sutton Hoo which opens this weekend. As for the

:23:28.:23:31.

site itself, the archaeologhcal work there continues.

:23:32.:23:38.

We loved the weekend. Today was a bit disappointing after that.

:23:39.:23:46.

On Sunday, temperatures reached 20 Celsius. Warmer than the Costa del

:23:47.:23:55.

Sol. Today, temperatures ard much closer to average, around 10

:23:56.:24:00.

Celsius. The biggest differdnce in temperature was actually me`sured at

:24:01.:24:06.

waveform. Yesterday, 19 Celsius Today, 11 Celsius. The reason why it

:24:07.:24:14.

was chillier everywhere, because we had this decaying cold front pushing

:24:15.:24:18.

down from the north`west. It introduced more cloud. We also had

:24:19.:24:22.

winds blowing in from the north`east. Tonight, a lot of cloud

:24:23.:24:27.

around, certainly initially. Then we may well see the cloud breaking up

:24:28.:24:31.

in some places, despite the fact the computer is keeping us largdly

:24:32.:24:35.

cloudy. Where we keep the cloud temperatures down to around four

:24:36.:24:40.

Celsius. Where we get some longer, clearer spells, temperatures could

:24:41.:24:48.

drop to freezing. The winds easing to a moderate north`easterlx. High

:24:49.:24:51.

pressure in charge for the rest of the week. We stay dry. The

:24:52.:24:54.

difficulty will be judging how much cloud we are going to get, `nd

:24:55.:24:58.

therefore how much sunshine and how warm it is going to be by d`y and

:24:59.:25:02.

how cold by night. But tomorrow looks like a cloudy start.

:25:03.:25:06.

Eventually some brightness `nd sunshine coming through. Thd

:25:07.:25:08.

computer is indicating that will happen in the north most frdquently,

:25:09.:25:12.

but those breaks could appe`r just about anywhere. Temperatures inland,

:25:13.:25:18.

around 11 Celsius. If we get any lengthy spells of sunshine they

:25:19.:25:21.

could reach around 14 Celsits. Cooler on the coasts with the

:25:22.:25:25.

onshore breeze. We finished the day again with some other singing more

:25:26.:25:28.

sunshine and others. For thd rest of the week it looks as if weapon state

:25:29.:25:33.

and Thursday will produce some lengthy spells of sunshine. But on

:25:34.:25:38.

Thursday morning, especiallx with the light winds, fog could be a

:25:39.:25:43.

widespread problem. Friday, a weak front pushing down from the north

:25:44.:25:46.

introducing more cloud, but it should stay dry.

:25:47.:25:54.

There's a breaking news story off the coast of Suffolk, a boat has

:25:55.:26:00.

overturned and one man has died Nicky Fox is following the story.

:26:01.:26:04.

Extremely sad news coming ott of Lowestoft this evening. What we do

:26:05.:26:10.

know is that a man wearing ` life jacket was spotted floating in the

:26:11.:26:16.

water, just 400 metres from the sea wall. He was spotted near a capsized

:26:17.:26:21.

boat at Ness Point. A member of the public who was working nearby

:26:22.:26:26.

spotted this debris and the man in the water. He raised the al`rm with

:26:27.:26:32.

the local police. That is when a large search was started. Wd don't

:26:33.:26:36.

know how many other people were also in that boat. That is why they are

:26:37.:26:39.

so keen to try and search the area to make sure nobody else is in the

:26:40.:26:44.

water. Do we know what kind of boat it was?

:26:45.:26:52.

We believe it may have been a small speedboat, although that has not

:26:53.:26:56.

been confirmed. The Coast Gtard are saying they are looking into the

:26:57.:26:59.

possibility that it left Fulston this morning, although that hasn't

:27:00.:27:03.

been confirmed either. What we definitely know with it wasn't a

:27:04.:27:06.

wind farm vessel or anything connected with the wind farls.

:27:07.:27:12.

Will they carry on searching this evening?

:27:13.:27:17.

They will. They have alreadx surged up the river and have already

:27:18.:27:23.

searched the piece of shoreline Peter Byatt is from the Coast Guard,

:27:24.:27:27.

and he says they are doing `ll they can.

:27:28.:27:32.

That is all from us this evdning. We will keep you updated with that

:27:33.:27:39.

story if there are any developments. We will see you tomorrow night.
