Good evening. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time

:00:09.:00:12.

An underwater search has taken place after a man went missing

:00:13.:00:15.

51-year-old Andrew Roy failed to show up for work on Friday morning.

:00:16.:00:20.

Today a police search was joined by the RNLI,

:00:21.:00:23.

Mr Roy's family, who live in Cornwall, are being kept informed.

:00:24.:00:32.

The candidates competing to be Copeland's next MP have

:00:33.:00:34.

clashed over the future of the local health service.

:00:35.:00:36.

A review of services at Whitehaven's West Cumberland Hospital

:00:37.:00:38.

could see more patients, including expectant

:00:39.:00:40.

mothers, travelling to Carlisle for treatment.

:00:41.:00:42.

It's become a key issue in the forthcoming by-election

:00:43.:00:44.

as our Political Editor Richard Moss reports.

:00:45.:00:50.

A decision on whether to move consultant-led maternity

:00:51.:00:52.

and other services out of the West Cumberland

:00:53.:00:54.

Some place the blame for the downgrade plans

:00:55.:00:58.

NHS England has come up with a report saying it

:00:59.:01:03.

is safe to travel up to four hours in labour in order to push through

:01:04.:01:07.

the closure of the services in Whitehaven hospital.

:01:08.:01:14.

It is an appalling report, it doesn't make

:01:15.:01:16.

logical sense, but this is the Government line.

:01:17.:01:18.

But the Conservative candidate says she is taking action

:01:19.:01:20.

What I have been doing is speaking with the minister.

:01:21.:01:24.

The health Minister Philip Dunn and what we have agreed in writing is

:01:25.:01:27.

that there will be a professional, Government backed review before any

:01:28.:01:31.

And also, let me be clear, that the issue here is not

:01:32.:01:34.

Other candidates though disagree on the solution

:01:35.:01:39.

We have heard of consultants being told not to bother

:01:40.:01:51.

replying because they are being told there won't be a job here.

:01:52.:01:54.

We're not going to get recruitment under those

:01:55.:01:56.

Whilst the Tories are taking money out of the NHS, both

:01:57.:01:59.

nationally and locally, we're not going to get people here.

:02:00.:02:02.

In Ukip policy, we have said we will waive

:02:03.:02:05.

So we get sufficient staffing for the future.

:02:06.:02:08.

If we had implement our policy a few years ago, we would not be in this

:02:09.:02:12.

The Green Party says the problems are down to the way

:02:13.:02:16.

the Government's running the NHS, while Independent candidates

:02:17.:02:18.

say it's time to change the way the local hospital

:02:19.:02:20.

The Ken Loach film, I, Daniel Blake, set in Newcastle

:02:21.:02:34.

and filmed on Tyneside, is up for five awards at tonight's

They are used in these conditions because they spent ten weeks filming

:03:24.:03:28.

Ken Loach the director, he set the film in

:03:29.:03:32.

He filmed in on location in the city and he cast a Geordie

:03:33.:03:36.

stand-up comedian who's never been in a film before as the lead role.

:03:37.:03:39.

The film is now at five BAFTA nominations.

This is where we could see a touch of snow.

The cloud stopping the temperatures from
