Two teenagers have been questioned tonight on BBC1 at 10.30.

:00:16.:00:17.

Two teenagers have been questioned by police following a fire which

:00:18.:00:22.

destroyed a landmark building in Southend. It took 30 firefighters to

:00:23.:00:25.

bring the flames under control, but bring the flames under control, but

:00:26.:00:27.

they could not save the Victorian structure.

:00:28.:00:34.

The dramatic end of the headquarters of the local yacht club, captured on

:00:35.:00:38.

film as firefighters struggled in vain to save anything of thd

:00:39.:00:44.

130`year`old building. They could not stop its wooden structure from

:00:45.:00:48.

being engulfed. It had been the clubhouse of one of the olddst yacht

:00:49.:00:51.

clubs in the world until just a few months ago.

:00:52.:00:58.

It is total. It has completdly gone. It survived a fire in the

:00:59.:01:02.

1970s, but unfortunately thd framework has gone. There is

:01:03.:01:06.

effectively nothing left of the club whatsoever.

:01:07.:01:11.

This was the clifftop buildhng just two days before the fire. All that

:01:12.:01:15.

remains now is the brick chhmney. It had been holding to the yacht club

:01:16.:01:22.

since the 18 hundredths and was a popular landmark.

:01:23.:01:26.

As I walked along here earlher I saw it was still on fire.

:01:27.:01:32.

It was a good club to be in. It is a sad way for it to go.

:01:33.:01:37.

I think it is such a shame, because it is over 100 years old. Irony hope

:01:38.:01:42.

they can rebuild it. I'm taken by surprise.

:01:43.:01:48.

Firefighters were still at the scene when police stopped two teenagers.

:01:49.:01:53.

They were arrested on suspicion of arson, and this evening werd

:01:54.:01:58.

released on police bail. Thd yacht club moved out of the buildhng

:01:59.:02:01.

several months ago after it was found to be subsiding. The clubhouse

:02:02.:02:03.

was due to be dismantled, btt any was due to be dismantled, btt any

:02:04.:02:08.

thoughts of saving it now lhe in ruins.

:02:09.:02:09.

A man is in hospital after ` gang of men burst into his home

:02:10.:02:12.

The police say it happened at a house in Kimbolton Road

:02:13.:02:16.

There were six or seven men in the gang.

:02:17.:02:21.

The victim who's in his 20s was stabbed several times

:02:22.:02:23.

His condition is described as stable.

:02:24.:02:28.

A man has been charged with stealing a bus from a depot in Colchdster.

:02:29.:02:33.

The 40`foot single decker w`s driven out of the yard in Magdalen Street

:02:34.:02:36.

Police stopped it with a stinger`type immobiliser two

:02:37.:02:40.

19`year`old Ashley Barrell has also been charged with drink`driving

:02:41.:02:46.

It's the third bus to be stolen from the same depot in nine months.

:02:47.:02:52.

Experts are warning that thd mild, wet summer we've had is likdly to

:02:53.:02:56.

hasten the end of the region's ash trees.

:02:57.:02:59.

It's two years since the deadly fungus,

:03:00.:03:01.

which causes ash dieback, w`s first found in the UK, in Norfolk.

:03:02.:03:06.

Weather conditions this year are making it spread

:03:07.:03:10.

and it could be several years before scientists develop a tree

:03:11.:03:13.

It takes just a few seconds to find the tiny fungus that threatdns to

:03:14.:03:30.

hope and to find a way `` this lady hope and to find a way `` this lady

:03:31.:03:38.

hopes to find a way to comb`t the disease.

:03:39.:03:42.

The fungus has continued its life`cycle growing on the ldaf

:03:43.:03:48.

stalk. They can be blown up to the air to reach this year's le`ves

:03:49.:03:55.

This tree looks healthy, but in a few years it could be dead. The

:03:56.:04:03.

classic diamond shaped lesions are indications of the disease, and this

:04:04.:04:06.

is the most dangerous time. This year, a mild summer and light winds

:04:07.:04:13.

will have helped the diseasd. Each red dot marks a confirmed ottbreak.

:04:14.:04:18.

Of the 304 in the wild nationally, more than half are in our rdgion.

:04:19.:04:24.

It has progressively got worse and worse, and now the tree is dead

:04:25.:04:30.

The first case was diagnosed at this small wood in Norfolk two ydars

:04:31.:04:33.

ago. In my lifetime we will see `lmost

:04:34.:04:40.

the total loss of ash trees in our woodlands. In the next few

:04:41.:04:45.

centuries, ash trees will no doubt make a comeback.

:04:46.:04:50.

Thousands of ash tree saplings have been planted locally to see which

:04:51.:04:53.

variety is resistant and can survive. Scientists are also mapping

:04:54.:04:55.

the DNA of an ash tree which can the DNA of an ash tree which can

:04:56.:05:01.

fight back against the dieb`ck. There is an ash tree that is a good

:05:02.:05:07.

candidate for some resistance. It is about identifying that resistance,

:05:08.:05:11.

and it is difficult to see how long that will take.

:05:12.:05:15.

Months? Years? I would say probably years.

:05:16.:05:21.

The recovery will be measurdd in decades, perhaps centuries.

:05:22.:05:25.

A crackdown has been launchdd against anti`social behaviotr

:05:26.:05:27.

There's been a wave of complaints about groups of youths intilidating

:05:28.:05:32.

Now police have won a dispersal order which will be

:05:33.:05:36.

It gives them the power to order trouble`makers to leave the area

:05:37.:05:42.

Onto football, and MK Dons have been in training for one of their one

:05:43.:05:50.

Tomorrow they're hosting Manchester United at Stadium MK in the second

:05:51.:05:55.

It's the first time in 19 years that United havd been

:05:56.:06:01.

in the draw this early, aftdr failing to qualify for Europe.

:06:02.:06:04.

Despite the pressure, the Dons say that they're ddtermined

:06:05.:06:06.

The result is not going to be important. I would rather h`ve three

:06:07.:06:20.

points against Crawley next week. Tomorrow is definitely about the

:06:21.:06:23.

occasion, and perhaps it is a glimpse into the future this club

:06:24.:06:24.

could have. Well it's been

:06:25.:06:26.

a typical bank holiday Mond`y. It was a miserable day todax. The

:06:27.:06:40.

rain will continue for the next few hours, and much of the night is

:06:41.:06:47.

looking wet. Many places st`rt tomorrow quite cloudy and wdt. A

:06:48.:06:51.

mild night, temperatures not lower than 12 or 13 Celsius. Tomorrow

:06:52.:06:56.

starts with more outbreaks of rain, but across Northern counties it

:06:57.:07:02.

could clear and brighten up. We could see some sunshine into the

:07:03.:07:06.

afternoon. Temperatures between 17 and 18 Celsius with a moder`te

:07:07.:07:13.

north`easterly breeze. By the end of the day it is looking as if all

:07:14.:07:16.

places will see something a little bit brighter. Things will ilprove

:07:17.:07:20.

for Sunday, but current unsdttled once more on Thursday and Friday

with some showers. I'll be back with more news

:07:24.:07:26.

and weather in the late bulletin. Hello, if you love wet weather, you

appreciate a satellite picture. A big swell cloud around to the west

of Ireland. If you love bank holidays, you would choose different

:07:49.:07:52.

words to describe the weather, but Italy this cloud which are the

:07:53.:07:57.

heaviest rain. In Scotland, you have been derived with lovely sunshine in

:07:58.:08:01.

the north-west. Within the cloudy zone, further outbreaks of rain this

evening. Difficult driving conditions if you are heading back

:08:06.:08:08.

after the long weekend and further heavy showers from the south-west in

southern areas as it goes on. Hill fog around too. We've not seen
