:00:00.:00:15.

A man has been arrested following the death

:00:16.:00:15.

Police officers and paramedics were called to a property

:00:16.:00:19.

in Britton Gardens in Kingswood in the early hours of Christmas Day,

:00:20.:00:23.

but despite their efforts the baby, who was six months old, died.

:00:24.:00:26.

A murder investigation has been launched following the discovery of

:00:27.:00:43.

a man's body on Christmas eve. He was found in a village in South

:00:44.:00:48.

Gloucestershire. A postmortem examination found he had died from

:00:49.:00:52.

stab wounds. Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen

:00:53.:00:56.

him in the days leading up to his death.

:00:57.:00:59.

Drivers on the M5 near Bristol were heavily delayed

:01:00.:01:01.

after the Avonmouth Bridge and the M49 into Wales were closed

:01:02.:01:04.

There were long delays in and around Bristol as police shut the roads

:01:05.:01:08.

following two accidents which needed to be cleared.

:01:09.:01:10.

The closures effectively cut off motorway access

:01:11.:01:12.

to and from the West Country into Wales for several hours.

:01:13.:01:14.

The Somerset teenager whose family were forced to pay for a potentially

:01:15.:01:21.

life-saving bone marrow transplant say he's hoping to go

:01:22.:01:23.

Daryl Allinson celebrated his 14th birthday on Christmas Eve,

:01:24.:01:29.

one his parents feared he might not see.

:01:30.:01:32.

Clinton Rogers went to see him at his home in Frome.

:01:33.:01:40.

Merry Christmas. Not that long ago, they wondered if he would even be

:01:41.:01:47.

here for Christmas 2016. Now the family has new hope,

:01:48.:01:52.

new optimism for the future. Daryl has been through much

:01:53.:01:54.

in his young life but, five months after his second bone

:01:55.:01:57.

marrow transplant, he says Amazing actually. You have put on

:01:58.:02:12.

weight since I last saw you. Are you feeling better? Yes, I feel so much

:02:13.:02:16.

better. More energy, wanting to do more stuff. It is great to have this

:02:17.:02:21.

energy. Words can't explain how I feel. I am just over the moon, I am

:02:22.:02:30.

so please, I am so proud of him. I just can't thank everybody enough

:02:31.:02:31.

for their generosity. It was the public's generosity

:02:32.:02:34.

in raising close to ?100,000 on a crowd funding website that

:02:35.:02:36.

allowed Daryl to have a second bone marrow transplant

:02:37.:02:39.

at Bristol Children's Hospital. The first transplant failed

:02:40.:02:41.

and his rare leukaemia returned. At that point, NHS England turned

:02:42.:02:45.

down the funding for a second operation based largely

:02:46.:02:50.

on its chances of success. At the time they said these

:02:51.:02:53.

were difficult decisions to make. No-one knows what the future holds,

:02:54.:02:58.

but the boy who celebrated his 14th birthday on Christmas Eve says that

:02:59.:03:02.

if he continues to recover well he hopes to start back

:03:03.:03:04.

at school in the spring, and then return to his

:03:05.:03:07.

try from Motu Matu'u. Final score harlequins 28,

Gloucester 24. Now, a round-up of

the Boxing Day goals. Bristol City lost their fourth

straight match in the Championship, despite first half goals

been a beautiful but chilly day. Hello, good evening. It is a chilly

:04:28.:04:47.

end to a bright day, and both temperatures we will take a tumble

:04:48.:04:50.

through the coming hours. A cold night with clear spells initially,

:04:51.:04:55.

and we will see another hard frost in many parts. By midnight we are

:04:56.:05:00.

seeing some patchy mist and fog developing, freezing fog in some

:05:01.:05:04.

spots, and we do have a yellow weather warning in place from the

:05:05.:05:07.

Met Office for those foggy conditions, valid from midnight

:05:08.:05:10.

tonight, right through until midday tomorrow, giving some tricky

travelling conditions. A great start for many tomorrow morning, cloudy

spells than we are used to, and some of that fog could linger through the

:05:20.:05:23.

morning. Some brighter dimmers as well, and amateurs could read seven

:05:24.:05:30.

or eight -- temperatures. In the cloud and fog those temperatures

:05:31.:05:36.

will struggle. On Thursday, high pressure stays in charge, so staying

dry and settled, though more in the way of cloud as we go through the

:05:42.:05:46.

course of Thursday and towards the tail end of the week. So, a weather

:05:47.:05:52.

warning for stubborn fog through to midday tomorrow, then cloudier and

:05:53.:05:53.

cold into the New Year. I'll be back with a final look
