Hello. I'm Jenny Kirk.

:00:00.:00:16.

More than 100 people have been taking part in the second

:00:17.:00:19.

privately-funded search for missing airman Corrie McKeague.

:00:20.:00:21.

40 members of the public volunteered to help search and rescue teams

:00:22.:00:24.

They also used drones and a team of dogs specially trained

:00:25.:00:27.

On one of the coldest mornings this year, search teams were out

:00:28.:00:39.

The area is where his phone pinged off a mast a couple of days

:00:40.:00:43.

If he was to try and get back to Honington, as the crow

:00:44.:00:51.

flies, he's got to walk directly behind you.

:00:52.:00:53.

He does know this area because this is where the RAF do

:00:54.:00:56.

This is the second time Suffolk lowland search and rescue have

:00:57.:01:00.

teamed up with the public to look for Corrie.

:01:01.:01:02.

They are covering 4-5 square miles

:01:03.:01:03.

And you can see the terrain they are having to deal with.

:01:04.:01:16.

I have some power around about 60 trained search technicians,

:01:17.:01:20.

I think we have 14 4x4s out who will ferry the teams around.

:01:21.:01:25.

We have five cadaver dogs coming from all over the country.

:01:26.:01:27.

They will go out with team leaders and be given their own search areas.

:01:28.:01:31.

The 23-year-old airman who is based at RAF Honington was last seen

:01:32.:01:39.

in the early hours of Saturday 24 September in Bury.

:01:40.:01:41.

He'd been enjoying an evening out with friends.

:01:42.:01:43.

But nearly four months on, the search team manager says it

:01:44.:01:46.

The search we are conducting now is for body recovery.

:01:47.:01:55.

There is no feasible way that if Corrie has been missing

:01:56.:01:58.

for the length of time that he has, and he is out in the

:01:59.:02:01.

Corrie's mother still has hope of finding her son alive,

:02:02.:02:12.

but understands that might not be the case.

:02:13.:02:14.

She says having the public supporting the search

:02:15.:02:16.

Basildon Council says it has finally finished clearing

:02:17.:02:20.

the former travellers site at Dale Farm in Essex.

:02:21.:02:22.

Travellers were removed from an illegal part of the site

:02:23.:02:24.

Officials say it has been returned to a condition

:02:25.:02:28.

They have cleared more than 180 tonnes of rubbish.

:02:29.:02:42.

The Vice Chancellor of Bedfordshire University Bill Rammell

:02:43.:02:44.

says students from low-income families should not be put

:02:45.:02:46.

off going to university by the scrapping of grants.

:02:47.:02:48.

From this year, students will no longer receive non-repayable

:02:49.:02:50.

maintenance grants which have been replaced with loans.

:02:51.:02:53.

There are concerns it will lead to a drop in people from poorer

:02:54.:02:55.

I would say to anyone with the potential to benefit

:02:56.:03:05.

It's the best investment that you will ever make.

:03:06.:03:08.

The vast, vast majority of people never regret that decision

:03:09.:03:11.

And the benefit will stay with you

:03:12.:03:13.

right the way throughout your adult life.

:03:14.:03:15.

Bill Rammell was speaking on Sunday Politics East.

:03:16.:03:17.

If you missed it you can find it on the BBC iPlayer.

:03:18.:03:26.

Onto football, and with a look at some of the weekend's

:03:27.:03:28.

Pain relief for Norwich as they packed off Wolves 3-0,

:03:29.:03:32.

with goals from Naismith, Brady and Howson.

:03:33.:03:33.

It takes them to tenth in the table, five points from the May mix.

:03:34.:03:37.

Boss Alex Neil said, the lads rolled their sleeves up

:03:38.:03:39.

and got stuck in today, and that's what you want

:03:40.:03:42.

Ipswich lost 2-0 at third placed Huddersfield.

:03:43.:03:50.

Not many sides will get much there this season,

:03:51.:03:52.

but that's little comfort for under pressure Town boss Mick McCarthy

:03:53.:03:54.

who has said, I'll be back on Monday morning with a smile on my face,

:03:55.:03:58.

In League 1, a derby match with eight goals,

:03:59.:04:01.

including three penalties, as MK Dons beat Northampton 5-3.

:04:02.:04:03.

It was Justin Edinburgh's first game in charge of Northampton

:04:04.:04:06.

and the defeat leaves them just four points above the water line.

:04:07.:04:09.

Dons boss Robbie Neilson told BBC Three Counties Radio,

:04:10.:04:11.

it was exciting for the fans, I'm pleased with three points,

:04:12.:04:13.

but I'd rather have won it 5-0 than 5-3.

:04:14.:04:16.

Chris Forrester with the only goal, which leaves Posh in eighth, four

:04:17.:04:20.

In League 2, a tetchy affair as Luton in sixth

:04:21.:04:23.

Skipper Scott Cuthbert had put them ahead with a near post header,

:04:24.:04:27.

but Adebayo Akinfenwa levelled with eight minutes on the clock.

:04:28.:04:30.

Colchester are two points behind them in seventh,

:04:31.:04:32.

but they missed a chance to nudge up a place in the play-offs,

:04:33.:04:35.

A setback, but Col U are still in the zone.

:04:36.:04:38.

Cambridge slipped to tenth and missed the chance to join

:04:39.:04:41.

the play-off gang after losing 3-1 at home to Mansfield.

:04:42.:04:43.

Thus ending their eight-game unbeaten run.

:04:44.:04:45.

It started well as they took the lead on eight minutes.

:04:46.:04:47.

Elsewhere, Stevenage lost 2-0 at Hartlepool.

:04:48.:05:05.

Now with the weather. Here's Elizabeth Rizzini.

:05:06.:05:07.

It was a very chilly start to the day today.

:05:08.:05:09.

Some of our more rural spots got down as low as minus eight Celsius.

:05:10.:05:12.

There will be another widespread sharp frost forming

:05:13.:05:14.

Also patches of freezing fog around as well.

:05:15.:05:17.

We have a Met Office warning out for this fog.

:05:18.:05:26.

It could be very dense, very slow to lift and clear.

:05:27.:05:29.

It will be mostly towards southern parts of our region, parts of Essex

:05:30.:05:32.

Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire also seeing some fog

:05:33.:05:35.

tomorrow morning. Very slow to lift and clear.

:05:36.:05:37.

Visibility on the roads, maybe leading to some travel issues.

:05:38.:05:49.

Keep up-to-date on BBC Breakfast tomorrow morning.

:05:50.:05:51.

Some brightness as we head into the afternoon.

:05:52.:05:53.

Top temperatures only up to three or 4 degrees.

:05:54.:05:55.

More fog problems possibly on Tuesday morning.

:05:56.:05:57.

It will stay largely dry and cold for the rest of the week.

:05:58.:06:00.

Enjoy your evening. Goodbye.

:06:01.:06:19.

of freezing fog. Already warnings in place from the Met office. I will

:06:20.:06:28.

concentrate on the fog as we go through the night. It will become

:06:29.:06:36.

quite dense late on in the night. When you have cloud cover you so

:06:37.:06:40.

much fog and that emojis .4 solo but as you saw last night potentially we

:06:41.:06:43.

could see values are a lot lower than this where the skies remain

:06:44.:06:48.

clear. Tomorrow morning could be a bit of a pea soup. Including the

:06:49.:06:49.

London area. Some patches of fog even further

:06:50.:07:05.

north, hit and miss. If you are on the move, it

:07:06.:07:06.
