Baulk website it's coming from, everything that we can to be able to
assist the police in their investigation.
The pilot scheme did give them out of hospital.
The footballer who lost both legs after being hit by a car.
Break and I am getting a lesson in chess, 12-year-old who is tipped as
being a future grandmaster. The mother of the missing
airman Corrie Mckeague Has told Look East
that press coverage of his membership of
adult dating websites is not helpful to the inquiry
and is distressing to his girlfriend There has been speculation
about Corrie Mckeague's private life since he went missing on a night out
in Bury St Edmunds in September. Today his mother said reports
of his membership to adult sites was not a revelation,
in fact she and the police have known about it all along and it's
been part of the inquiry We'll hear from her in a moment,
but first this from Alex Dunlop. Look at moments not at home to note
is that Corrie Mckeague is popular and outgoing. His mother has been on
the front line handing out leaflets and helping the physical search.
From the outset, she has acknowledged that he had been using
popular dating websites like this one. Sometimes lies have reported...
She says that it has never been a secret and was known to his family
long before he went missing. Suffolk police say they have been aware of
it. This is part of their investigation. The they have told
Luke Cammack needs to that is good to be a father. A profile that is
good to be a father. A provider achieves good to be a mother. His
brothers took to social media to the rate latest reports are a
distraction. Anything that has not been said doesn't need to be said.
Things to do with his personal life or not help the investigation or
anything... All these things. She was last seen in the early hours of
the 24th of September. He was enjoying an evening out with
friends. Those who met him that night told me he was very engaging.
Baulk he was coming up to tables and saying hello. He was nice. Meanwhile
private investigators say they are still unanswered questions not least
about an area known lately as the Or shoot where he was last seen on
CCTV. He didn't magic himself out of there. Any vehicle that left their
there should be more work done on that to discount it. The mystery
surrounding this young M and's disappearance has heightened public
interest in his private life. His mother is adamant that the focus
must turn to the search for him and hopefully his safe return.
My boys talk to me and the centimes tell much. In this instance, I am
acting so glad that we do have that open relationship that they are able
to talk to me because nothing has come as a surprise. We have been
able to really help the police from the very beginning. You can access
his accounts on those websites because you have access to his
passwords. Has that led you to come up with any theories as to whether
there was any involvement in his disappearance? Response I get to
that is the police response. The social media sites are still a line
of enquiry, and the police don't want any more said about it just
now, so I am not good to say anything about anything that is on
there. I do have access to it and the police are aware of that. But
not before the police had finished monitoring his phone. You can see
that some people listening to this might think that those kind of sites
might have made him more vulnerable. That was why we didn't close them
down. As soon as we found out that he was missing, just like the
police, the first thought is, has he just try to walk home? Has something
happened to him? The absolute immediate thought after that is
could any of these sites had anything to do with this? Could he
have an arranged to meet someone and it has not been who he thought? Azmi
said, he would put himself in vulnerable situations because he
believed that he could handle this kind of thing. The effect that press
has an ice doesn't... I feel so bad for April, she is a young woman who
is pregnant, is not something she should be having to go through. How
is she coping? She has been very upset about it. Half absolute main
focus is try to find Corrie. Every time I mention her name or someone
else mentioned her name, it crashes her. People are talking about her
instead of Corrie. Your resilience has always been astounding, but now
your family and Corrie's lifestyle is coming under this kind of
scrutiny. How does that make you feel? As a police officer, I'm OK
with it coming under scrutiny. Itchy be looked at. As a family, our
resilience at being able to cope with it, it is difficult. Corrie's
personal life, it's April's bacilli. It is not been kept a secret. It is
part of the investigation and hopefully it can be ruled out and we
can move on to wear Corrie is and try to find him.
The jury at an inquest into the death of a prisoner
has retired to consider its conclusion.
Dean Saunders was jailed after he attacked members
Weeks later he was found dead in his cell.
Gareth George is outside the inquest in Chelmsford now.
At the outset of this hearing in January, the senior coroner told the
jury that they would be looking into whether the state authority did I
did not do everything they could to prevent Dean Saunders's death. It
has been a harrowing hearing. 28 witnesses. The coroner spent much of
the afternoon serving up the jury retired just after four o'clock.
Dean Sanders parents have been here every day of the hearing. Mark
Saunders told the jury that he believed his son had been let down.
Even Saunders died in the prison on January 16. Yet electrocuted himself
using wires from a GP in his cell. He was in prison after stabbing his
father in a paranoid episode. Signs he was acutely mentally ill went
acted upon. His parents say he should have been in hospital. They
have criticised the decision to take him off constant watch and to check
on him only every half hour. A private company has the contract to
run health care at the prison. Among 20 witnesses, the health care
manager told the jury she was part of the team that decided to take
Dean of suicide watch. None of the team is medically qualified. Dean
Saunders's partner, clear, has told the hearing how a nurse at the
prison had assured her that Dean was safe. And it has been very difficult
for Dean Saunders's family to sit and listen to the evidence they have
heard of the course of these last few days. The jury has been giving a
list of 24 questions to consider and they include if the decision to
deeply because the observation of Dean Saunders and based on financial
considerations? Another question is, why is there a fairly to transfer
Dean Saunders to a mental hospital urgently? They will resume
deliberations tomorrow. The region's Ambulance Service says
people in Norfolk who fall will no longer automatically be
taken to hospital. In a pilot scheme running
until March, medical teams in specialist vehicles will asist
people at the scene. With the NHS under
increasing pressure, health bosses say this is one way
they can relieve the strain - Gaby lovely shift. And
occupational therapists, on-board the early intervention vehicle. The
asset to non-urgent calls for people who have had false. 87-year-old less
how it is in... He's been looked after neighbours at the failover
chopping a log in the garden, injuring his head and arm. It is not
the first time he has called for help. It started off falling off a
bike, then a ladder, then the steps. E.g. Work in tandem. Matt says he is
his medical needs and Helen establishes how well he is coping.
They want him back to his house and referrals are instantly made to
community nurses, a process that would have taken longer in A How
many falls in the last year? Be carried out an ECG and pulse checks
and breathing. My colleague has assessed his walking and mobility. I
can link directly packaging to be the nursing and therapy, social
services, depending on what I find I can call directly to other services.
Less's case is typical of the calls received each month. By sending out
an early intervention vehicle, ADCs pressure on A This afternoon the
team are out again, this time the Met field, and other 87-year-old man
has fallen over and hit his head. Next thing I knew I was backwards
and hit up here. The team begin the assessment process all over again.
The early intervention falls team has only been on the road for a
week. Two vehicles will soon be in operation, aiming to relieve the
pressure is on her struggling health system across the board.
Still to come tonight, the weekend weather. The footballer who lost
both legs after being hit by a car. Now he is taking on a two-day
cycling challenge. And I am getting a lesson from a 12-year-old who has
been tipped at being a future grandmaster at yes. -- chess.
This week we've been looking at the impact of building
a new nuclear power station at Sizewell on the Suffolk coast.
Of course for many local companies, it offers a huge opportunity.
More than 1,000 have already put their names forward
hoping to win contracts which could be worth hundreds
But there could also be huge pressure on services
This from our environment reporter Richard Daniel.
The late 1980s. Construction on Sizewell B is underway. The end Flex
of thousands of workers brought money, jobs and problems too. There
was heavy drinking, prostitution and drugs. This resident says ever
social problems. We don't have enough pleasing. We weren't ready
for the displacement, they were so many people standing at the tills
with bottles of whiskey. People felt the town didn't belong to them any
more. The Mac around 5500 people live around here. At the peak of
destruction they would be more at Sizewell. About half of those would
be living in or near the town. EDF all with happy a code of conduct.
They will be testing and a hotline for complaints. Already in the plans
are having an effect. This the agent has seen increased interest in
property investors. At the moment Sizewell does provide the town and
businesses with a lot of work and we do many short and long-term lets. We
are gearing up for the future. There would be a lot more business coming
to town and everybody will benefit. The town council says Sizewell C
could be a huge economic opportunity for late stone. At the moment it is
not supporting it. It says there is insufficient information about the
impact on GP services, schools, policing and the annual in-service
and transport and the environment. Reed and there is a lot more detail
that needs to come to the council and we would hope to work with EDF
before we get to the next age. At a recent meeting, local companies were
offered to sign up. 1000 already have. EDF has already placed
contracts worth... If Sizewell C was built, plenty of opportunities could
lie ahead. But there are still many misgivings.
Late this afternoon I asked him if he was concerned about that
many of the smaller local roads would be unable to cope with a big
We can listen to how huge the impact is going to be.
We can do some studies on the impact in terms of
That will help us get a better idea of
how we can decide that traffic flow and what we can do in the local area
You don't deny that it will make life
miserable for some people who live near those roads over the next few
I think the key thing is that we listen to their concerns, we do
our very best to mitigate the impact.
No doubt there will be some impact but it is up to us to make
The other concern is the volume of people
coming to work there will
There will be a number of people who will come to

We have a very comprehensive accommodation strategy
taking into account local available needs, the needs
We have got proposals for accommodation strategy which are
designed to provide accommodation for workers and minimise traffic

Part of the accommodation strategy is to make the accommodation
There will be restaurants, sports facilities.
A number of the workers will probably go home

offered some business opportunities for the local entertainment
If they are going to use the restaurants and pubs,
If they go to go home, they are not going to use
We are offering a facility where people
have a choice to make, but some of them will go out,

We don't want them indulging in anti-social behaviour, and we will
We will enforce a drug and alcohol policy.
Drunkenness is anti-social behaviour, is it?
And people who did that would lose their job?
It depends who they are and where it happened.
How many times would I have to get falling down drunk
before you thought that was too many times?
I don't know, I haven't thought that through.
We have a policy on drugs and alcohol,
They may be subject to random checks.
We can see if there is a pattern of behaviour
and we will offer people counselling, assistance, and if that
behaviour doesn't improve then we will have to take

and despite the recent relation. Manager in his fifth year. There's a
growing feeling among fans that the changes needed. The manager is still
under pressure. We're building for the next few matches, but also next
season. We need to let him get on with it. Players have got to stand

cycling challenge in May, the next task facing Ipswich is Huddersfield

With fantastic. It's been confirmed the grey seal

guys over Gorleston on see this afternoon. Not a cloud in the sky a
little bit further down the coast. It is a thank you for this lovely
photograph of a sunset together hey bridge in Essex. I love these pale
wintry skies. It wasn't a beautiful blue sky this afternoon for
everybody. Thicker cloud starts to break up a bit, but the next few
hours it can still produce a little bit of light drizzle. By evening it
should break and we should see clear spells. It is going to be a cold
one. Temperatures could fall a little lower than these values. It
is a sharp widespread frost. Thicker cloud into was the coast where
damages will be close to freezing and not above. Light winds. Freezing
fog and possible some nice too. High pressure in charge. Light winds mean
that the mist and fog might take a and it will be a frosty start for
for many of us. Frost should eventually clear and cloud should
disappear as well. More generally in terms of sunshine tomorrow expected.
Temperatures around six Celsius. We hold onto mainly light
north-easterly winds. It looks like that winter sunshine will continue
through the afternoon, but under clear skies tomorrow evening.
Temperatures falling away pretty quickly. That is Friday, Saturday.
High pressure shifts position. More cloud would get cot up in the
circulation. Sunny spells symbol, but they will be more cloud around.
Fog will take a while to clear. The further south, you're better chance
of brightness. Sandy is the day where we are expecting decent sunny
spells, but a chilly day with temperatures of freezing. Saturday
and Sunday night it will be called. Monday, cold and frosty start, mist
and fog. They will still be decent spells of sunshine followed by
another very cold night. It is Thursday night, so it is barometer
night. If you want to check, it should be around 1036 millibars.
That is 30.59 inches of mercury. Like you very much. That is all from
eyes. Have a very good evening. Good night.
