Welcome to BBC Points West with Alex Lovell and David Garmston.

:00:00.:00:00.

The students bombarded with racist abuse.

:00:00.:00:09.

one of their tormentors is alleged to be a fellow student

:00:10.:00:14.

Some people think they can kind of pass everything off as a joke

:00:15.:00:20.

Cos I think it is something they have never experienced,

:00:21.:00:23.

it's hard for them to understand the way it is going

:00:24.:00:26.

The university says it cannot act until there is

:00:27.:00:29.

an official complaint - we'll talk to a Vice Chancellor.

:00:30.:00:41.

Police divers search the Feeder Canal in Bristol

:00:42.:00:43.

for a young man who went missing from a nearby nightclub.

:00:44.:00:47.

Take a pew - churches open up for the homeless

:00:48.:00:50.

And remembering the day when two lions escaped from a circus

:00:51.:00:55.

and wandered into a school in Devizes.

:00:56.:01:04.

Two University of Bristol students have told us they're being subjected

:01:05.:01:09.

to racial harassment on social media, including by another

:01:10.:01:13.

Say they have been sent texts, messages and an abusive video.

:01:14.:01:26.

From the very beginning of Lee Madan's report,

:01:27.:01:28.

there is extreme racist and offensive language -

:01:29.:01:30.

we've decided to broadcast it to highlight what the students have

:01:31.:01:32.

They have called me "a dirty stinking coon".

:01:33.:01:38.

They have called me "an S-word flinging ape".

:01:39.:01:42.

They have called me "a gorilla who has thrown

:01:43.:01:44.

They have called me the N-word flat out.

:01:45.:01:50.

A lot of monkey jokes, like Bobo the ape, or Bubbles the monkey,

:01:51.:01:53.

after Michael Jackson, and just things like that.

:01:54.:01:56.

Timi Ariyo and Tami Sotire have spent the past year being targeted

:01:57.:01:59.

It led to this video being sent to hundreds of students on Snapchat.

:02:00.:02:17.

So many of my friends from Bristol and friends

:02:18.:02:19.

from home saw the video, and were like, wow, I've never

:02:20.:02:22.

seen anything like that, I didn't know it still happened

:02:23.:02:24.

The University of Bristol students were also sent racist comments

:02:25.:02:28.

on the instant messaging service What'sApp, as well as

:02:29.:02:30.

And I do think it is like the pack mentality, obviously.

:02:31.:02:47.

They feel like if they say it in a group, they're less likely

:02:48.:02:50.

for one person to get in trouble because they do it, like...

:02:51.:02:53.

They all comment together or they will all say the same things

:02:54.:02:56.

on a group chat or tweet the same thing, so it is hard to kind

:02:57.:02:59.

One of the bullies is also a student in

:03:00.:03:03.

They have not reported the bully into the University

:03:04.:03:07.

because they told me they do not know how to, and say they are not

:03:08.:03:11.

confident race issues would be taken seriously.

:03:12.:03:14.

During freshers', so many people were like, oh, my God,

:03:15.:03:16.

Given the mix of people who come here, it is quite white

:03:17.:03:20.

middle-class, I think a lot of people don't have

:03:21.:03:23.

The university now need to take it on themselves to protect

:03:24.:03:27.

all of the students of every single race, every background,

:03:28.:03:29.

and make sure we are all treated fairly and equal.

:03:30.:03:33.

Timi and Tami hope that by speaking out now,

:03:34.:03:36.

they can help spread the message that racism will not be tolerated.

:03:37.:03:45.

Well, earlier I spoke to the University of Bristol's

:03:46.:03:48.

Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education, Judith Squires.

:03:49.:03:52.

I asked her what she thought of the reports of racism?

:03:53.:03:57.

Well, I was saddened and shocked, frankly, when I saw the report,

:03:58.:04:00.

It is unacceptable anywhere, and it is not acceptable

:04:01.:04:06.

And so, as a university that takes a zero tolerance approach to any

:04:07.:04:10.

form of racism or hate crime, we were keen to ensure

:04:11.:04:16.

that we would be able to take appropriate action if any such

:04:17.:04:19.

Well, we know from the film that one of the people involved appears to be

:04:20.:04:26.

Is that young man still with you tonight?

:04:27.:04:30.

As far as I'm aware no complaint has been brought forward so we have not

:04:31.:04:34.

Because we have a disciplinary procedure which requires students

:04:35.:04:47.

to come forward to make complaints, and we would require evidence of any

:04:48.:04:50.

activity that would require us to take disciplinary action.

:04:51.:04:55.

Saw the evidence you've seen on the television today, that isn't

:04:56.:04:57.

enough for you to initiate proceedings against that young man?

:04:58.:05:01.

I don't have sufficient evidence right now to know

:05:02.:05:04.

Do you think there is a place for him at Bristol University?

:05:05.:05:08.

We would need to take disciplinary action.

:05:09.:05:10.

There is no place for any racist behaviour or any hate crime

:05:11.:05:13.

Some people might find it difficult to understand why you are so laid

:05:14.:05:18.

back about it and not proactive, saying, look, there is obviously

:05:19.:05:22.

I would say, we are not at all laid back about this issue,

:05:23.:05:29.

If any students experience any kind of racism or hate crime or any

:05:30.:05:35.

kind of unacceptable behaviour, we actively encourage them to come

:05:36.:05:40.

The students in this case have not done that,

:05:41.:05:46.

and we will take action as soon as students bring

:05:47.:05:49.

We always do look at those very seriously.

:05:50.:05:54.

The problem is, I guess if you're away from home

:05:55.:05:56.

for the first time and you're 18, 19, 20 years old, going

:05:57.:05:59.

into an institution like the University of Bristol,

:06:00.:06:04.

with its fine tradition and all its hierarchy,

:06:05.:06:07.

Can you not reach out in some way to the students?

:06:08.:06:13.

We do work very carefully with our students, we do a lot

:06:14.:06:16.

of work to support them when they first arrive,

:06:17.:06:18.

We have special training courses for them to make them clear

:06:19.:06:23.

that they understand what is acceptable behaviour

:06:24.:06:26.

We provide support and counselling for them.

:06:27.:06:29.

They have wardens within their residence who they can speak to.

:06:30.:06:32.

They have personal tutors in their academic departments

:06:33.:06:35.

who they can speak to, and our students union has a just ask

:06:36.:06:38.

service which is there precisely to provide them with the guidance

:06:39.:06:41.

that they need on any issues that they want to raise.

:06:42.:06:44.

Briefly, do you think this is damaging to

:06:45.:06:46.

It is not the kind of activity that we want to have

:06:47.:06:51.

It has got no place within the university.

:06:52.:06:54.

And we will work very firmly to eradicate any such

:06:55.:06:57.

Thank you very much indeed for coming on the programme tonight.

:06:58.:07:01.

Police divers today joined the search for a 24-year-old man

:07:02.:07:07.

The students involved say they are still considering whether to make a

:07:08.:07:14.

complaint, and with that permission, Points West has passed all details

:07:15.:07:17.

of their report on to the authorities.

:07:18.:07:18.

Police divers today joined the search for a 24-year-old man

:07:19.:07:20.

who went missing after a night out in Bristol.

:07:21.:07:22.

Deakon Wilkins, who's from Worle, was last seen on CCTV at the city's

:07:23.:07:26.

His family and friends have heard nothing since.

:07:27.:07:30.

Deakon's parents started their day at Cabot Circus.

:07:31.:07:38.

Friends and family helping them to hand out leaflets.

:07:39.:07:42.

Just holding it together, really, just...

:07:43.:07:44.

Everybody has been so good, it's just keeping busy,

:07:45.:07:47.

People that saw it advertised, some family, some good friends,

:07:48.:07:56.

and we're hoping to just keep it in the forefront of people's minds,

:07:57.:08:00.

and people that haven't seen it will see it as well.

:08:01.:08:04.

And less the one mile away, the police search had

:08:05.:08:08.

a depressing twist to it, with divers deployed metres

:08:09.:08:12.

Just to put this all into a bit of context, the building behind me

:08:13.:08:18.

is the old Royal Mail building, and this warehouse is a nightclub,

:08:19.:08:22.

where Deakon Wilkins was on Friday the 13th.

:08:23.:08:25.

He would have come and turned right out of the nightclub

:08:26.:08:27.

and crossed that bridge, and then this road with the barrier

:08:28.:08:30.

is the Feeder Road, you can see in the distance,

:08:31.:08:33.

police have been conducting their search in this sort

:08:34.:08:36.

This afternoon, police confirmed Deakon has not used his bank

:08:37.:08:42.

But the detective leading the investigation was keen to stress

:08:43.:08:47.

that he is still keeping a very open mind.

:08:48.:08:51.

We have been working closely with a police search adviser

:08:52.:08:54.

in respect of where we ought to conduct searches.

:08:55.:08:57.

We have had a conversation today, and we have agreed that today

:08:58.:09:00.

seems like, you know, the right time to search the water.

:09:01.:09:07.

As I said, it is very close to where he went missing,

:09:08.:09:10.

so it may be that we find something that gives us an idea

:09:11.:09:13.

But you're still keeping an open mind?

:09:14.:09:17.

I mean, I do not know where Deakon is at the moment,

:09:18.:09:21.

and I will continue to keep an open mind on till we find him.

:09:22.:09:27.

And so the wait for news goes on for two parents who are finding

:09:28.:09:31.

It must be a nightmare for them, and we really hope there is good news to

:09:32.:09:49.

bring you on that story. why a shortage of fruit and veg

is to look into the death of a young Josh Clayton's family say

:10:08.:10:18.

they're convinced that someone else was responsible for what happened

:10:19.:10:23.

to him on Tresco in September 2015. The investigation comes

:10:24.:10:28.

after new evidence came to light Dorset Police have also been brought

:10:29.:10:31.

in to review the original investigation by

Ann Furneaux was found at a house in Pilgrims Way

:10:46.:10:47.

on Thursday morning. Her death is being

:10:48.:10:51.

treated as murder. Her husband Edward Furneaux

:10:52.:10:53.

died after his car hit a tree on Kewstoke Road

hopes to reduce staffing naturally, as people leave.

:11:27.:11:31.

There will be less staff, but we have been working on this, and there

will probably be less full-time posts, but most of those will come

from vacant post that we have been keeping an eye on, across the whole

at Vale Wildlife Hospital. The swan was left with a bolt

when Taunton's Northern Inner Our Somerset Correspondent

Clinton Rogers has Already two years behind schedule,

:12:24.:12:28.

and still counting. I think people are getting

:12:29.:12:36.

a bit fed up with it, That would sort them

:12:37.:12:39.

out, wouldn't it? It is a mile long stretch of road

:12:40.:12:45.

on the northern side of Taunton, which is designed to ease congestion

:12:46.:12:49.

in a rapidly expanding town. A town that already has its fair

:12:50.:12:54.

share of traffic jams. But this project has been beset

:12:55.:12:58.

with technical difficulties come not least over the construction

:12:59.:13:02.

of a new bridge. I am telling them to get

:13:03.:13:06.

workers out here and get And this week, for the first time,

:13:07.:13:08.

the county council, which is already paying more than ?11 million

:13:09.:13:13.

on the project, came out fighting. We employed what we thought

:13:14.:13:17.

was a competent contractor to do this project a number of years ago,

:13:18.:13:20.

and here we are, January 2017, Whenever this road finally does

:13:21.:13:24.

open, the question is, who is responsible for all

:13:25.:13:31.

the technical problems, and all the delays,

:13:32.:13:33.

and he was going to pick up the bill, which is getting

:13:34.:13:36.

bigger all the time? The fact is, both sides

:13:37.:13:40.

are blaming one another, And it is a row that has become now

:13:41.:13:43.

a formal legal dispute, and the loser could be faced

:13:44.:13:48.

with a very big bill indeed. The contractor, Carillion,

:13:49.:13:52.

is refusing interviews, The council, though,

:13:53.:13:58.

is adamant - we are not I'm not a charitable person,

:13:59.:14:11.

I'm not prepared to give it. So now the lawyers are involved

:14:12.:14:19.

in a dispute which could And of course push up the final bill

:14:20.:14:22.

even higher for whoever has to pay. If you live in Bristol you will have

:14:23.:14:42.

seen the number of people sleeping rough in the city has risen sharply.

:14:43.:14:47.

On any data can be dozens of people spending the night outside, and at

:14:48.:14:51.

this time of year temperatures often fall below freezing.

:14:52.:14:55.

For the first time, as part of this project, some of the city's churches

:14:56.:14:59.

are offering beds for the night will stop Andrew is at one of them for us

:15:00.:15:05.

now. What is the idea? That is the view from the street,

:15:06.:15:08.

the church where we are. The temperature a couple of minutes is 1

:15:09.:15:13.

degrees, just above freezing. Inside, it is much warmer. They are

:15:14.:15:17.

putting down some of the temporary beds, 12 tonight. Blow-up mattresses

:15:18.:15:25.

and duvets. Dinner is in the oven over there. We have got David from

:15:26.:15:31.

the homeless charity to tell us why this is necessary. You have got 65

:15:32.:15:34.

emergency beds, at you have still got perhaps 75 people sleeping

:15:35.:15:39.

rough. Give us an idea of the scale of the problem?

:15:40.:15:44.

Yes, we set up an additional 35 bed this time last year. Before that

:15:45.:15:47.

there were 30 beds already running by charities in the city. All of

:15:48.:15:52.

those charities working very closely together. But we have got far too

:15:53.:15:56.

many people out on the streets of Bristol every night.

:15:57.:16:00.

The beds are full and you still have people outside?

:16:01.:16:05.

Yes, absolutely. Lots of people come to Bristol hoping they can get into

:16:06.:16:09.

accommodation here. We have got a team that goes out and helps people

:16:10.:16:14.

on the street, saying you can get help and another local authority

:16:15.:16:17.

area, they need to get help there. We have got people ultimately into

:16:18.:16:20.

supported housing or private sector accommodation. But we have got

:16:21.:16:27.

rising house prices and rent prices, so there is less available

:16:28.:16:30.

accommodation in the city. Thanks very much indeed. We have

:16:31.:16:36.

also got someone who has come from a budget meeting. Thank you for coming

:16:37.:16:39.

so quickly. We are big and rich city, relatively. Any to be doing

:16:40.:16:42.

more to get these people off the streets.

:16:43.:16:45.

Exactly, and that is what we're doing. This is also the supply of

:16:46.:16:50.

housing. What we are saying is that some of these crisis, we can only

:16:51.:16:54.

tackle them by the city mobilising. This is one expression, responding

:16:55.:16:59.

to an appeal we have made to Bristol, across business, voluntary

:17:00.:17:02.

sector, faith groups, to tackle rough sleeping.

:17:03.:17:06.

We have got perhaps six to five bed, but more people out on the streets.

:17:07.:17:13.

Duminy to put more money into this? -- do we need to?

:17:14.:17:20.

There are is an important to funding. We need to protect people

:17:21.:17:25.

in private rental as well. There are also mental health and sustenance

:17:26.:17:33.

issues. -- substance abuse. What we did was put an appeal out to the

:17:34.:17:38.

city to help us take on the challenge, and we are pleased to say

:17:39.:17:41.

that churches, businesses and the voluntary sector are stepping up. We

:17:42.:17:45.

need more people to come forward, empty buildings. It is not a

:17:46.:17:48.

long-term solution but it is a solution to the challenge we face

:17:49.:17:51.

right here and right now. Thank you very much. This is a

:17:52.:17:56.

four-week trial, it is already had two weeks, there is another couple

:17:57.:18:00.

of weeks left. If it is successful, there are people coming here

:18:01.:18:03.

tonight, then it could happen for a slightly longer period next year.

:18:04.:18:08.

Thank you very much. Pass on our thanks for the volunteers and

:18:09.:18:11.

everyone therefore what they are doing on this cold night.

:18:12.:18:14.

Wet weather in Italy and Spain is continuing

:18:15.:18:18.

to affect the availability of some produce here.

:18:19.:18:19.

Importers and wholesalers in the West say they've seen

:18:20.:18:22.

so could that be good news for local growers?

:18:23.:18:28.

Andy Howard was up early today to find out.

:18:29.:18:34.

By the time the West Country weeks, business is most done for the day at

:18:35.:18:41.

the Bristol fruit and veg centre. This place opens at 2am, selling to

:18:42.:18:47.

shops, restaurants and supermarkets. But these warehouses are almost

:18:48.:18:51.

empty. When the going is good and all guns

:18:52.:18:55.

blazing, this section would be completely full of tomatoes. Two,

:18:56.:19:02.

three, four pallets deep. We would be selling roundabout ?5 50, ?6. At

:19:03.:19:08.

the moment we could double that. Absolutely crazy. This is not

:19:09.:19:13.

short-term, this will be over the next six weeks.

:19:14.:19:15.

Here is the lesser spotted courgette. Two months ago, this

:19:16.:19:21.

would have been worth 35p. At the moment, it is ?1 50. If you tick the

:19:22.:19:28.

box as a whole, that is usually about 4- ?5. Now, ?20. The question

:19:29.:19:38.

is why? The answer is whether? This company imports fruit from his

:19:39.:19:44.

homeland of Spain, but this is his family farm.

:19:45.:19:49.

This year I think we lost around 45% of the harvest. It was all flooded,

:19:50.:19:55.

and some of the areas we had to cut down the trees.

:19:56.:20:01.

And that is why a shortage of citrus fruit is predicted in a fortnight's

:20:02.:20:05.

time. We rely on Spain, Italy and France for more than half of our

:20:06.:20:10.

fresh produce. But local growers are encouraging us to return to our

:20:11.:20:15.

roots. Well, root vegetables. With Somerset Cale picked as an

:20:16.:20:21.

alternative to Mediterranean greens. In two years, we do not know exactly

:20:22.:20:24.

what the nature of our relationship will be with Spain, so it is a good

:20:25.:20:29.

practice run just to help local farmers by trying their produce, and

:21:45.:21:46.

celebrating our 60th anniversary, and looking back at some

:21:47.:21:54.

of the stories that have made And in April 1980 a story

in Devizes captured Two African lions

:21:59.:22:05.

were on the loose - they escaped from a circus

:22:06.:22:10.

and went to a nearby school. It all ended well -

:22:11.:22:16.

and with some spectacular memories, as our Wiltshire reporter

:22:17.:22:19.

Will Glennon found out. It was April 28, 1980, and normal

:22:20.:22:33.

life at Devizes school was about to be shattered. The circus was in town

on the green next door. Somehow, to Lyoness Open escaped and got into

the school. We were certainly aware that the

:22:44.:22:47.

lion was walking down the path towards us.

:22:48.:22:51.

Vanessa and Karen were pupils at the time, and remember the whole thing.

:22:52.:22:55.

I think to start with we were frozen with shock, but then there was a lot

:22:56.:23:00.

of noise, a lot of panic and screaming, and that unfortunately

:23:01.:23:08.

frightened the lion, and she ran towards us, and she jumped through a

:23:09.:23:14.

glass door. I remember being out and about, I

:23:15.:23:19.

had my lunch, and members of staff coming out and just shouting that we

:23:20.:23:23.

all had to go into our tutor rooms. Because there were lions in the

:23:24.:23:26.

school, which obviously made everyone move rather quickly, and we

:23:27.:23:31.

spent the whole time looking out the window trying to see Lions

desperately. A Points West reporter and film crew

:23:35.:23:38.

were quickly dispatched, and the story went across the whole country.

:23:39.:23:46.

It seems they had escaped from a circus in a neighbouring field. One

their pocket in 1980. We have two imagine what it was like for the

:24:05.:24:07.

children to be facing a real lifeline. Were they thinking, this

:24:08.:24:11.

is it, it's all over? Or were they thinking, we will have a great tale

to tell. What was the reaction? Someone really excited, and panic

from the girls, they were screaming. We just ran in there and shut the

door. I was excited. Memories resurfaced recently on the

Graham Norton show. In the distance I saw what looked a

:24:34.:24:37.

great Dane coming towards us. It came up the steps towards us and

:24:38.:24:41.

smashed through the plate glass window behind me. It was a lie in.

-- Lagan. The Lions were tranquillised and

recaptured, and no one was hurt, but that April day will always be

:24:58.:25:03.

It is a good story. Money, we had a lion and will today?

Bring pets to school day. Let's catch up with the weather, how

:25:17.:25:21.

is the fog today? As many of you can attest, it was

:25:22.:25:29.

quite extensive and dense, last night we were seeing visibility

:25:30.:25:33.

dropping past the M5towards Devon, down to 50 metres, and this forecast

:25:34.:25:37.

will be something of a d j vu experience. Let me take you through

it. Once again, we will look at the risk of fog forming across these

:25:42.:25:47.

eastern areas of our region. Again some of that will be lingering for

:25:48.:25:51.

quite awhile during the first half of tomorrow. Elsewhere, it will be a

:25:52.:25:56.

day of varying amounts of cloud and bright and sunny spells. It will be

:25:57.:26:01.

a dry one for us all. Another Met Office warning, this caters for

:26:02.:26:06.

areas from around my head any where eastwards. -- Minehead. A greater

:26:07.:26:13.

threat of seeing fog of freezing fog, and that will have a disruptive

:26:14.:26:18.

influence of you out and about the roads. Here is a wider look at how

:26:19.:26:21.

things are shaping up. The footprint for the fog forming across central

:26:22.:26:27.

and southern England. As we run through the night into tomorrow, it

:26:28.:26:31.

lingers for quite a while. Effectively lying through a good

:26:32.:26:36.

part of the day. It may be a similar story tomorrow. Through the rest of

:26:37.:26:40.

this evening, varying amounts of cloud, the fog forming readily,

:26:41.:26:45.

particularly where it has been already due course of the day. And

:26:46.:26:50.

towards the end of the night, we are unlikely to have seen temperatures

:26:51.:26:53.

as low as we did last time, but nonetheless there will be some areas

:26:54.:26:58.

getting down to -2, minus three. Further west, could be temperatures

:26:59.:27:08.

above freezing. Into tomorrow, the longevity of some of those areas of

fog of freezing fog, and the best of any brightness out towards the West.

:27:13.:27:17.

Where we have fog, it will tend to lift, and foreign banks of low

cloud, which could be stubborn across parts of Wiltshire.

:27:21.:27:25.

Temperatures tomorrow getting up perhaps to seven Celsius. Much

:27:26.:27:29.

colder on Thursday, brisk south easterly wind, thick cloud, some

:27:30.:27:39.

snow with that maybe as well. We have put the story about the

:27:40.:27:44.

Lions on our Facebook page. We're off to panic buy some

courgette. Otherwise, we will see you tomorrow.

You might get the impression that history is just a record

Very often, the line between fact and fiction

In this series, I'm exploring how three turning points in our history

have been manipulated to become our greatest historical legends.
