Police investigating the murder of a man whose body was found

:00:12.:00:16.

in a village on Christmas Eve say he was moved there

:00:17.:00:19.

The remains of Mohammed Abdurezek, who's originally from Ethiopia,

:00:20.:00:26.

were discovered in the village of Siston near Bristol.

:00:27.:00:29.

It's thought he died two or three days earlier.

:00:30.:00:31.

The discovery of the 31-year-old man's body down this quiet country

:00:32.:00:37.

lane sparked an immediate appeal from the police for information.

:00:38.:00:41.

They've identified him as Mohammed Abdurezek,

:00:42.:00:46.

and that he died from stab wounds but they now think he was

:00:47.:00:49.

We are trying to piece together where Mohammed

:00:50.:00:56.

has been and from that, if we can establish a motive

:00:57.:01:01.

for his death and therefore from that who killed him.

:01:02.:01:03.

At the moment, there is no reason for him to be here.

:01:04.:01:06.

So what we are asking the public for as well,

:01:07.:01:10.

did you see any disturbances leading up to Christmas Eve, the day before?

:01:11.:01:13.

The Wednesday, Thursday, the Friday, which have been reported to police?

:01:14.:01:18.

The body was found here by a dog walker on Christmas Eve morning

:01:19.:01:22.

and they believe it might have been here for two days.

:01:23.:01:24.

There was no wallet on the body or phone and they believe Mohammed

:01:25.:01:27.

memsbers of the public, if you found any identification

:01:28.:01:42.

any phone, mobile phones, older types, please come forward.

:01:43.:01:46.

The police are also looking at CCTV footage, hoping that tracing

A man is still being questioned after the death of a six-month-old

:01:57.:01:59.

baby, found at a home near Bristol on Christmas Day.

:02:00.:02:01.

The 30-year-old was arrested at Britton Gardens in Kingswood.

:02:02.:02:05.

Avon and Somerset Police said the child died despite efforts

The RSCPA has launched an investigation after undercover

:02:15.:02:23.

filming at a dairy farm in Somerset showed cows and calves

:02:24.:02:26.

The footage was gathered by an animal rights group.

:02:27.:02:32.

The owner of the farm says he was appalled when he saw the film

:02:33.:02:35.

and has now sacked the farmhand shown hitting the animals.

He has just kicked that cow square in the face,

:02:56.:02:57.

she gave birth an hour and a half before this footage was taken.

:02:58.:03:00.

And the animal rights group which secretly filmed the farm

:03:01.:03:02.

on the edge of Taunton has described it as shocking.

:03:03.:03:05.

I really don't know what I was expecting to see as far

:03:06.:03:08.

as the handling of the animals, but to see tiny calves and cows

:03:09.:03:14.

who have just given birth being punched and kicked and sworn

:03:15.:03:17.

at in such an aggressive manner I found really shocking.

:03:18.:03:20.

The charity says it chose to hide a camera at Pyrland Farm in Taunton

:03:21.:03:25.

after a tip off from someone living nearby about alleged

:03:26.:03:27.

There is plenty of sawdust on these, so...

:03:28.:03:33.

When we visited the farm today, a local vet was there as well.

:03:34.:03:36.

He said was as surprised as anyone when he saw the film,

:03:37.:03:39.

I just can't understand his behaviour.

:03:40.:03:45.

The farmer himself said he'd now sacked the young farm labourer seen

:03:46.:03:48.

to kick and punch the cows and calves - but he denied there

:03:49.:03:51.

We were really appalled by the behaviour of the young

apprentice, because we take great pride in our dairy herd,

:03:58.:04:04.

we all work very hard to look after them and we'll very proud

we all work very hard to look after them and we're very proud

:04:09.:04:15.

of the way the cows are on this farm.

:04:16.:04:18.

The footage has now been passed to the RSCPA.

:04:19.:04:19.

They say they are investigating, adding they are concerned

:04:20.:04:22.

, horrible images, I am sorry if you found upsetting.

:04:23.:04:31.

The Health and Safety Executive is investigating how

:04:32.:04:33.

a scaffolder lost a leg and hand after a severe electric shock.

:04:34.:04:35.

A fund-raising page has been-set-up for father of two

:04:36.:04:38.

He was working in Swindon just before Christmas when it happened.

:04:39.:04:41.

Bristol is to get a share of more than ?2 million of Government money

to help girls at risk of female genital mutilation, domestic

:04:48.:04:50.

The city has the second highest number of recorded FGM victims

:04:51.:04:58.

in England but also has campaigners fighting to end the practice.

:04:59.:05:03.

The money will go to the Foundation for Women's Health

:05:04.:05:05.

A woman from Gloucestershire, who's walking the coastline

:05:06.:05:12.

of Britain in memory of her daughter,

has reached her fundraising target of ?100,000.

:05:18.:05:19.

After losing five-year-old Elizabeth to a rare immune

:05:20.:05:20.

disorder last December, Natalia Spencer took

:05:21.:05:22.

In all weather and on all terrain, Natalia has walked 20 miles

:05:23.:05:30.

She died shortly before Christmas last year

:05:31.:05:40.

after she was struck by a rare immune disorder called HLH.

:05:41.:05:43.

And because Elizabeth loved the sea, she decided to walk right

:05:44.:05:45.

round the country's coastline - beginning and ending at the last

:05:46.:05:49.

beach they visited together here at the Durdle Door in Dorset.

:05:50.:05:54.

Her mission - to raise ?100,000 for the Bristol Children's Hospital,

:05:55.:05:58.

And with months to go, she's done it.

:05:59.:06:04.

Yes, I am surprised about it, of course and I feel very humbled

:06:05.:06:08.

indeed that people reacted so generously and kind to my walk.

:06:09.:06:14.

And then last month, she was named Endurance Fundraiser

:06:15.:06:16.

of the Year at the national Just Giving Awards.

:06:17.:06:22.

For me it was a very poignant, because it coincided with the day

:06:23.:06:25.

that Elizabeth got ill, the 22nd of November 2015.

:06:26.:06:28.

In the evening, I was told she was not going to live

:06:29.:06:31.

but on the 22nd of November 2016, her name was in the Elizabeth

:06:32.:06:40.

Footprint for Endurance of the Year award, which was so incredibly

:06:41.:06:43.

poignant and meaningful for me and I am very proud

Now Natalia wants to double her fundraising target, as she heads out

:06:46.:06:50.

She hopes to complete her walk on Valentine's Day.

:06:51.:06:53.

And she even went walking on Christmas day.

:06:54.:07:04.

Best of luck with the rest of it. Now let's get the weather. Hello,

:07:05.:07:13.

already forming but in addition to that, some freezing fog patches

:07:17.:07:20.

later on tonight and certainly tomorrow morning, stay the BBC local

:07:21.:07:24.

which stays with us for the rest of this week. The fog is quickly

:07:28.:07:32.

reforming and overnight, it will get down to around zero, possibly even

:07:33.:07:36.

:07:37.:07:41.

it may stick around and quickly reform when it gets dark again, with

:07:42.:07:44.

a top temperature between six and 8 degrees. As for the outlook, as we

:07:45.:07:49.

move through the rest of this week and into the weekend, a lot of cloud

:07:50.:07:54.

on Friday, a few breaks developing. Slightly more of a breeze,

:07:55.:08:00.

south-west winds giving temperatures back up into double figures.
