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

:00:00.:00:00.

Our main story tonight: Taking the pain out of breast screening.

:00:00.:00:08.

Existing machines can be uncomfortable.

:00:09.:00:09.

Now this could be the future - and the first in the world

:00:10.:00:12.

The new machine uses mine detecting technology,

:00:13.:00:17.

Brilliant, painless. It says, it's like having a good meal in a

:00:18.:00:25.

restaurant. I'd go back. Our other headlines

LAUGHTER Women in the west are about to take

:01:08.:01:16.

part in a world first - the trial of a machine that scans

:01:17.:01:20.

for breast cancer, Remarkably, it's the same technology

:01:21.:01:22.

they use to find landmines. The radio wave imaging has

:01:23.:01:26.

taken years to pioneer. And as our health correspondent

:01:27.:01:28.

Matthew Hill reports, it could make the whole

experience less uncomfortable. Melanie White could never

:01:37.:01:39.

of my body for years, It's the way they say, "You may

experience some discomfort." Thanks to this machine,

she's now been able Maria, as it's known,

has got transmitters and receivers arranged under a ceramic cup,

which the breast sits in. When I went up to the breast clinic

:02:02.:02:05.

in Cheltenham, they were saying, I went, "No," and I said,

:02:06.:02:08.

"I know about this radar thing." If you want somebody to do

:02:09.:02:16.

something, you've got to give them a good time and they've got

:02:17.:02:23.

to want to go back. And believe it or not it's been

built on technology similar to ground penetrating radar,

in five cancers are not detected through mammograms,

:02:34.:02:36.

and they also use radiation, so for young women in particular

:02:37.:02:41.

who have to come back year-on-year, the doctors have to consider

:02:42.:02:45.

whether it's worth putting A recent study has shown this

radio wave technology to be just as accurate,

:02:49.:02:53.

and now doctors are about to start a second clinical trial to find out

if it could even be safer It could save lives eventually,

:02:57.:03:00.

because one of the difficulties of mammograms when you are younger,

meal in a restaurant. Melanie is encouraging

:03:21.:03:27.

other women to take part in this new clinical trial,

:03:28.:03:31.

where it is also hoped doctors can find out how well patients

:03:32.:03:35.

are responding to chemotherapy. And since we've put this story up

wish you well, Julie. A 36-year-old man has

:04:26.:04:31.

appeared in court, accused of murdering a woman found dead

:04:32.:04:33.

in Easton in Bristol. Jaici Rocha is charged

:04:34.:04:36.

with killing 40-year-old Karina Batista, who was found

:04:37.:04:37.

with multiple injuries. Mr Rocha has been remanded

:04:38.:04:39.

in custody until Monday. The family of a young man,

:04:40.:04:43.

who's been missing for almost two weeks, say they're baffled

:04:44.:04:46.

by his disappearance. Lewis Ball vanished after leaving

:04:47.:04:48.

a waterside nightclub Police divers have been searching

:04:49.:04:51.

the water near there today. But as his brother Alex

:04:52.:04:56.

told our reporter Andrew Plant CCTV footage from the night Lewis

leaving the nightclub. Now his brother Alex says police

:05:33.:05:40.

have shown him more footage that appears to show Lewis heading away

:05:41.:05:43.

from the water. It's becoming increasingly likely

:05:44.:05:48.

that he didn't enter the water. We're still hoping that

someone is going come That's our one hope at the moment,

that that someone has I think everyone involved

the next chapter of a love story, which began outside a book shop

in Gloucester. As expected, opinions were divided

:07:10.:07:15.

and the strength of feeling was high at the first meeting of a new group

:07:16.:07:31.

set up to tackle the issue of wild Last night, town and parish councils

came together to start try to find a solution to the numbers of boar

all the boar completely culled. We have to find a happy medium

:09:09.:09:11.

somewhere along the way. Hopefully, the three bodies we sit

:09:12.:09:17.

down with may have the answers. Lots to think about, facts to check,

:09:18.:09:23.

more opinions to gauge and a lot of persuading

to do, perhaps. This was a very small first,

:09:27.:09:28.

but vital step on a long road. A river in Gloucestershire

:09:29.:09:37.

which was badly polluted last year The River Leadon was so badly

:09:38.:09:40.

polluted that 15,000 fish died. Investigators were called

:09:41.:09:46.

to the river after fish were seen This week Environment Agency

:09:47.:09:48.

released almost 5000 fish back into the river in an attempt

:09:49.:09:51.

to repopulate it. Some unlikely heroes have emerged

:09:52.:09:54.

in the ongoing battle against homelessness in Bristol

:09:55.:09:56.

- city financiers. Over the last year, an investment

:09:57.:10:00.

fund has been buying up flats in Bristol and is renting them out

:10:01.:10:03.

to people who've been homeless in the past and are now ready

:10:04.:10:06.

to take on a tenancy. Investors get a return

but others have been let to tenants. It's been a bit of a nightmare

for these guys. Bristol City Council has

:11:14.:11:18.

already invested ?5 million into the property fund,

:11:19.:11:20.

hoping to get a good return on its money

:11:21.:11:22.

as well as helping the homeless. What we're doing is unblocking

:11:23.:11:29.

a part of the system, because the private rented sector

:11:30.:11:31.

market has completely dried up. So local authorities

:11:32.:11:34.

are paying millions of pounds on temporary accommodation,

which they have to fund out We can help move people into a home

much, much more quickly. It's not just institutions

:11:52.:12:01.

which are investing. Wealthy individuals

:12:02.:12:03.

are contributing as well. I've lived here for 30 years,

:12:04.:12:05.

so the ability to put some money to work in the Bristol area is very

:12:52.:12:57.

show you some footage of them in a second. They are really quite

:12:58.:13:01.

excellent. They've only been skating together as a pair since last year,

:13:02.:13:05.

less than 12 months, but already they are British champions and

:13:06.:13:09.

they've been in the European Championships as well. Christopher,

:13:10.:13:12.

you have lodged an appeal for some crowdfunding. That's because you

:13:13.:13:17.

want to train more to get to the World Championships and beyond? Yes.

:13:18.:13:21.

People don't really realise how expensive figure skating is. It

:13:22.:13:24.

requires a lot of money. We need to pay for our cows, for our ice, for

:13:25.:13:31.

our trips, for our fitness coach -- we need to pay for our coach. My

:13:32.:13:36.

friends practice six days a week with their coach, three hours a day,

:13:37.:13:40.

but we only have our coach two or three days a week. Zoe, it's not

:13:41.:13:47.

like you don't work hard and train hard as it is. You have children. A

:13:48.:13:52.

hop from home to the ice rink to the school, back to the ice rink, to the

school, to the ice rink. Days start at 6am and finish at 8pm sometimes.

Extra funding would help you train more. Christopher, if you got that

funding how far could you go? Everyone has a dream in life, like

if a CEO listens at the moment, they dream and build their company. Our

:14:21.:14:23.

dream is to go to the Olympics and get a medal. Thanks both, we wish

:14:24.:14:29.

you well. Their fundraising page is on the go fund me .com website, you

:14:30.:14:34.

can find it there. If they do go on and win a future gold at an event,

:14:35.:14:39.

and you help them, maybe you can be happy to have been a part of it.

:14:40.:14:47.

Can we have a go on the gold medal? Share it!

:14:48.:14:49.

Gloucester are in action tonight, looking to bounce back

:14:50.:14:51.

from what their Director of Rugby David Humphreys

:14:52.:14:53.

has called their worst performance of the season.

:14:54.:14:55.

But the Cherry and Whites will have their work cut out

:14:56.:14:58.

as they're up against the reigning Premiership and European

:14:59.:15:00.

Our sports reporter Damian Derrick is at Kingsholm for us now.

:15:01.:15:10.

A defeat by 34-9 last week at Leicester has brought

:15:11.:15:12.

Gloucester's failings firmly into focus.

:15:13.:15:14.

They find themselves down in ninth place in the Premiership table,

:15:15.:15:17.

Alongside me is former Gloucester lock Simon Devereux.

:15:18.:15:24.

You see them on a regular basis. Where is it going wrong? Not taking

:15:25.:15:31.

their chances, a bad start of the season, losing their first three at

:15:32.:15:35.

home and they are not finish things off. The opposition are capitalising

:15:36.:15:39.

on that. Good sides sense that chances. There's good work ethic

:15:40.:15:43.

that but they have to show up at Kingsholm, there's a weakness at the

:15:44.:15:48.

moment. They could finish in the final bottom third, is that

:15:49.:15:52.

Gloucester's level, or should we expect more? They are better than

:15:53.:15:55.

that, they are not finishing things off and the confidence comes from

:15:56.:15:59.

that. They are losing streak and it's easy to get in a winning habit

:16:00.:16:03.

and likewise with losing habit. The fans expect more and deserve more

:16:04.:16:12.

and the way they've been playing, it deserves because it's a tight

:16:13.:16:14.

league. They've lost four games at home this season and the same in the

:16:15.:16:17.

previous two seasons. Two years ago James Hook kicked that penalty to

:16:18.:16:22.

win the match in the final seconds. Can Gloucester fans expect to go

:16:23.:16:26.

home just as happy tonight? We will cling to anything at the moment. I

:16:27.:16:29.

remember that from the halfway line. It was a tight game, could have gone

:16:30.:16:34.

either way. Gloucester were coming off a losing streak then. It's not a

:16:35.:16:38.

confident ground, the sides know that. If they are in the game with

:16:39.:16:43.

20 minutes to go, it goes quiet quickly, but the fans are

:16:44.:16:46.

optimistic. We are keeping the faith and if they can't get a result

:16:47.:16:49.

tonight we are in trouble. Thank you very much.

:16:50.:16:52.

Both our other Premiership sides are in action tomorrow.

:16:53.:16:54.

Bath at home to Harlequins and Bristol away to Leicester.

:16:55.:16:57.

There's another important match happening just up

:16:58.:16:58.

the road from here tomorrow, as Cheltenham Town host Yeovil.

:16:59.:17:01.

It brings together former Glovers boss Gary Johnson and Darren Way,

:17:02.:17:03.

who played and coached under Gary during the club's most

:17:04.:17:06.

They may be galaxies apart when it comes to experience, but they

:17:07.:17:40.

couldn't be closer when sharing in Yeovil's successes. We won the

:17:41.:17:45.

play-off final against Bradford to take little old Yeovil into the

:17:46.:17:49.

Championship and Darren as well as Terry had a big part in that, so the

:17:50.:17:53.

three of us holding up the Cup, which I nearly dropped, by the way.

:17:54.:17:57.

It was heavier than I thought! That was a great moment because we knew

:17:58.:18:01.

how much effort that we'd put into that. Back in 2001, Gary's impact on

:18:02.:18:06.

Darren and the rest of the players was immediate. The following year

:18:07.:18:10.

they won their first piece of silverware, the FA Trophy. He

:18:11.:18:13.

enabled us to create that environment, the environment we

:18:14.:18:17.

wanted to work in. He built a group of players that would become winners

:18:18.:18:23.

and that's what it takes to be in football management. 15 years' on

:18:24.:18:27.

Darren's transition to manager has come as no surprise. He's got it as

:18:28.:18:35.

well, a passion for the game, handle the problems and the highs and lows

:18:36.:18:39.

of professional football. He seems to be doing it very well. Well

:18:40.:18:44.

enough in fact to get one over on his old boss earlier in the season,

:18:45.:18:48.

as Yeovil beat Cheltenham 4-2. But will they be able to put their

:18:49.:18:53.

professional differences aside after the match? We'll have a chat. He

:18:54.:18:57.

came in our office last time and it was quite brief, but after a defeat

:18:58.:19:02.

there's one thing we have got, we've got mutual respect we're both in

:19:03.:19:07.

each other's' souls all the time. I think it's only professionally that

:19:08.:19:14.

we don't make contact as often as we would like -- we are in each other's

:19:15.:19:19.

thoughts all the time. But how will this latest episode end? That match

:19:20.:19:29.

Bristol City are not playing, as their opponents Fulham

We'll have the highlights in our late bulletin

:25:18.:25:21.

little bit more overnight, perhaps lingering into the first couple of

:25:22.:25:29.

hours of Sunday. Towards the back end of Sunday, we could see a bit

more light rain. Aside from that looking effectively dry and the

:25:32.:25:33.

question is the balance between cloud cover and whatever brightness

we happen to get. Here's a wider look at how things are shaping up at

the moment. As we had through the course of demise, there will be an

injection of quite a bit of low cloud into the mix. Some foggy

western areas. That aside it is looking dry. There will be quite a

bit of low cloud developing. It will be most pronounced towards the

south. It could turn the murky through Dorset and neighbouring

areas. Temperatures for all others in a range of Hall -- range of 4-6 C
