Chelmsford Prison has been held partly responsible

:00:08.:00:12.

for the death of a young inmate, who killed himself while being cared

:00:13.:00:15.

The family of Dean Saunders say he was suicidal

:00:16.:00:20.

But today an inquest found he'd been the victim of neglect in prison,

:00:21.:00:27.

and there were serious failings by the private company

:00:28.:00:30.

Dean Saunders' family leaving the coroner's court at the end

:00:31.:00:38.

Dean's partner, the mother of his son, said Dean

:00:39.:00:41.

should have been in hospital, not caged

:00:42.:00:43.

I know what it feels like, I don't want another Dean or another

:00:44.:00:49.

family to have to go through this again.

:00:50.:00:51.

But do you fear they will, if nothing is changed?

:00:52.:00:53.

If nothing changes, it will happen again.

:00:54.:00:59.

There were gasps of relief from Dean Saunders' family

:01:00.:01:01.

when the foreman of the jury read out that Dean's death

:01:02.:01:04.

There were multiple failings at Chelmsford Prison, said the jury,

:01:05.:01:13.

including complacency about Dean's state of mind and circumstances.

:01:14.:01:15.

In an interview with Look East, a former inmate told us

:01:16.:01:18.

what the medical wing of the prison was like.

:01:19.:01:20.

I wouldn't even say there WAS a proper medical

:01:21.:01:23.

So I've just come through myself - there would be a little

:01:24.:01:30.

like that, obviously with glass or

:01:31.:01:33.

bars on to protect the nurse, and from there the queue sometimes went

:01:34.:01:36.

people queueing back up the stairs...

:01:37.:01:41.

And they're all looking for medical help?

:01:42.:01:47.

And by this time people are still waiting in the queue, their

:01:48.:01:51.

dinner's going cold, everyone's getting

:01:52.:01:52.

angry, no-one wants to wait in the queues...

:01:53.:01:54.

And then people trying to jump in... It just causes riots.

:01:55.:01:57.

said the jury were let down by serious failings in both mental

:01:58.:02:01.

I'm just so grateful that someone's finally listened to us -

:02:02.:02:05.

Words can't describe how much we miss him,

:02:06.:02:11.

The blessing is we've got a little bit of him in his son.

:02:12.:02:21.

The family's now urging the coroner to prepare a report

:02:22.:02:23.

highlighting the failings, to try to prevent another needless death.

:02:24.:02:29.

The company which runs the medical wing, Care UK,

:02:30.:02:31.

has issued a statement, offering its condolences

:02:32.:02:32.

It says it's decided to end its contract with Chelmsford Prison,

:02:33.:02:38.

due to insufficient resources available to provide

:02:39.:02:40.

It also adds that it's developed a plan to help

:02:41.:02:45.

It's emerged today that a hospital in Norfolk went

:02:46.:02:50.

to court to evict a patient, who refused to leave

:02:51.:02:52.

The patient had been on the ward at the James Paget

:02:53.:02:58.

Another patient claimed the man treated the ward like a hotel.

:02:59.:03:01.

The James Paget Hospital says its decision to go to court

:03:02.:03:07.

to evict a patient wasn't taken lightly, but the bed was needed.

:03:08.:03:10.

The Portuguese man finally left ten days ago.

:03:11.:03:15.

Another patient on his ward, who didn't want to be identified,

:03:16.:03:17.

is disgusted he was allowed to treat the hospital like a hotel.

:03:18.:03:21.

that it stopped somebody else from being treated.

:03:22.:03:26.

He was getting all the X-rays, he was getting all the treatment,

:03:27.:03:32.

Solicitor Ben Ward says legally the hospital

:03:33.:03:39.

is in a difficult position, as without the patient's consent,

:03:40.:03:41.

It's a very, very difficult predicament for the hospital to be

:03:42.:03:47.

in, and ultimately they've had to take the decision to go

:03:48.:03:50.

And that seems to be the only legal way in which the hospital

:03:51.:03:57.

The MP for Great Yarmouth, Brandon Lewis, praises

:03:58.:04:01.

the way the hospital dealt with the situation,

:04:02.:04:03.

We all have a duty to think about what is right and appropriate,

:04:04.:04:10.

and that was clearly a case where there were opportunities

:04:11.:04:13.

for that person to be where they should have been

:04:14.:04:15.

That's just not fair on the local community.

:04:16.:04:18.

The patient is now understood to be living in Suffolk.

:04:19.:04:21.

He hasn't been available for comment.

:04:22.:04:22.

Tonight, the hospital said it needs to ensure that its limited resources

:04:23.:04:25.

are given to those people who really need them.

:04:26.:04:29.

Meanwhile, experts are predicting that the man's two-year stay

:04:30.:04:31.

cost the NHS ?200,000, and it's unlikely that that money

:04:32.:04:33.

As you may have seen, Donald Trump has been sworn

:04:34.:04:45.

in as the 45th President of the United States.

:04:46.:04:50.

The event was followed across the world.

:04:51.:04:52.

And it was the big talking point at the Bungalow Diner near Colchester -

:04:53.:04:55.

It's a slice of America - but in the county of Essex.

:04:56.:05:09.

And it's got everything you'd want from an American diner.

:05:10.:05:12.

And my breakfast favourite, pancakes with maple syrup.

:05:13.:05:14.

But breakfast aside, today is all about the man who's

:05:15.:05:17.

going to be in charge of the United States of America

:05:18.:05:19.

American businessman Donald Trump is the 45th US president.

:05:20.:05:26.

Today, at the Capitol Building in Washington, he took the Oath

:05:27.:05:28.

of Office, where he promised to protect America and its people

:05:29.:05:37.

and to be a good leader, which his fans embrace.

:05:38.:05:46.

But that's something that some of the ex-pats

:05:47.:05:48.

I don't think he's going to protect our daily lives,

:05:49.:05:52.

things like the cost of healthcare, the cost of food.

:05:53.:05:56.

They're stocking the government with people who don't

:05:57.:05:58.

I think the idea of protecting the American people is THE one thing

:05:59.:06:02.

And he'll do it through the enhancement of national security

:06:03.:06:07.

and through putting a lot of money into the defence sector.

:06:08.:06:11.

President Trump says he wants to make America great again,

:06:12.:06:13.

create more jobs, and be tough on terrorism and immigration.

:06:14.:06:18.

So as the billionaire takes office, his supporters will no doubt mark

:06:19.:06:23.

But those in the anti-Trump camp, those who campaigned against him,

:06:24.:06:31.

will be likely to be anxiously watching his every move

:06:32.:06:33.

Those are your top stories tonight - just time to leave you with

:06:34.:06:43.

Well, it's another dry but cold night -

:06:44.:06:47.

Temperatures in some spots, like last night, might actually fall

:06:48.:06:53.

lower than these values, possibly down to minus 5 to minus 6.

:06:54.:06:56.

Light winds, so we're also looking at some mist and fog,

:06:57.:06:58.

So tomorrow that mist and fog might take a while to clear; once it's

:06:59.:07:06.

gone it's looking a dry day, but we are expecting thicker cloud

:07:07.:07:09.

to spread into some parts, and that could produce a little bit

:07:10.:07:12.

of light rain and drizzle in North Norfolk.

:07:13.:07:14.

The best of any brightness and sunshine expected in the south.

:07:15.:07:17.

Temperatures tomorrow at best around 6 Celsius, 43 Fahrenheit.

:07:18.:07:19.

And it looks like the dry conditions will continue through the afternoon

:07:20.:07:22.

Now, in a moment Helen has the national forecast,

:07:23.:07:25.

but I'll leave you with the outlook, and on Sunday perhaps the better

:07:26.:07:28.

chance of some spells of sunshine once mist and fog has cleared,

:07:29.:07:31.

and it looks like the dry conditions will continue

:07:32.:07:33.

feel cooler. Can we keep it going until the start of the new week? I

:07:34.:07:39.

suspect we can. Unconfirmed about -- concerned about the fog around. Here

:07:40.:07:40.

is Helen with the national picture. Good evening. The weather is upon

:07:41.:07:51.

us. The cloud has made all the difference this week in particular.

:07:52.:07:54.

We have had some wonderful weather watcher pictures, this is Marlowe in

:07:55.:07:58.

Buckinghamshire, this was Conwy earlier in the day. Some areas still

:07:59.:08:04.

have the cloud. What a difference that makes. Edinburgh, the central

:08:05.:08:08.

lowlands, plagued by this band of narrow cloud, overnight more areas

:08:09.:08:17.

share in the frost. Pretty widespread, the frost overnight,

:08:18.:08:20.

cold across northern England, Southern Scotland and Northern

:08:21.:08:22.

Ireland

:08:23.:08:23.
