:01:51.:01:54.

about that specific intelligence that brought them here in the first

place. What is becoming clear is that whatever they are searching

:02:00.:02:00.

for, they are being very determined. Police searches have continued

:02:01.:02:04.

on Broad Street throughout the day. As specialist officers combed

:02:05.:02:08.

garages and gardens, the sound of concrete drilling

:02:09.:02:13.

echoed down the alley. Neighbours say that they found

:02:14.:02:18.

all the activity quite surreal. As a community, we felt

quite freaked out about It is a bit too close

:02:22.:02:24.

for comfort, isn't it? But there's not much

:02:25.:02:29.

we can do about that. Christopher Halliwell was convicted

informed, and for Becky's dad, John, I am really upset.

:02:53.:03:00.

I am really upset with it all. As a father, that is all I ask.

:03:01.:03:05.

It is upset for all the families. It all should have been

the BBC that there must be more. I mean, I spent a lot of time

with Christopher Halliwell. He was contrite, fully contrite,

crying on my shoulder And there is no question,

from all the information that I gathered when I was running this

enquiry in 2011, that he has Wiltshire Police have not officially

linked any other crimes to Halliwell but they have appealed to him

are setting their budgets today, needing to save tens

of millions of pounds. Wiltshire plans to shed

a hundred jobs in order to balance its books,

:05:44.:05:45.

but Bristol needs This evening, councillors

:05:46.:05:46.

are discussing how to cut ?100 million over

the next few years. Let's join our political editor

:05:54.:05:55.

Paul Barltrop, who's at City Hall. These are difficult days in local

:05:56.:06:07.

Government. Wiltshire Council met this morning after several hours of

:06:08.:06:12.

discussion. They voted through the budget, 100 jobs will go. Year at

Bristol, a meeting began this afternoon and it will go on a lot

:06:17.:06:19.

longer. It is much more controversial. The cuts are much

:06:20.:06:25.

bigger. Many millions of pounds in next four years and there have been

:06:26.:06:29.

protests. In the council chamber earlier, there was heckling from the

:06:30.:06:33.

gallery. The destruction was such that they suspended the meeting and

:06:34.:06:38.

rejected those causing difficulties. -- the disruption. In the run-up to

:06:39.:06:43.

this council meeting, there were protests about possible targets for

:06:44.:06:47.

cuts. This swimming pool in the south of the city so people gathered

:06:48.:06:50.

outside at the weekend, upset that I could lose some of the subsidy and

:06:51.:06:58.

beef or -- and be forced to close. People explained why it is

:06:59.:07:02.

important. It is an important committee resource. If it goes, it

:07:03.:07:06.

would be a real problem for lots of young people and old people. It does

:07:07.:07:11.

not make sense to me. It seems like such a busy swimming pool. The

:07:12.:07:15.

traffic in and out of year is quite high.

:07:16.:07:22.

It comes at a time of falling central Government fund for

:07:23.:07:25.

councils, which the Mayor of Bristol says means cuts are inevitable, if

:07:26.:07:30.

regrettable. Again, in the case of assuming pool, that is the, but we

:07:31.:07:39.

could say, what about other services? If you are elected, you

:07:40.:07:46.

want a leader. Only does help people navigate difficult decisions. What

:07:47.:07:49.

we have is a whole bunch of difficult decisions. If you do not

:07:50.:07:52.

have the appetite for that, maybe you should think about whether you

:07:53.:07:57.

should have been elected. One thing it has been referred to

:07:58.:08:00.

repeatedly in the council meeting today as the financial mess in which

:08:01.:08:04.

Bristol finds itself. A recent report carried out by a former head

:08:05.:08:07.

of the commission concluded officers had the Robert -- had deliberately

:08:08.:08:15.

misled councils about the programme savings in the last two years. It

:08:16.:08:18.

means Bristol finds itself a long way behind other councils. In

:08:19.:08:25.

comparison to Swindon just down the road, it has half the population

:08:26.:08:36.

almost. In terms of libraries, Bristol runs 23. In a matter of

:08:37.:08:45.

months, Swindon will have five. There is a reflection in council

:08:46.:08:52.

tax. If you are a band Dee Holder in the areas...

:08:53.:08:58.

Council taxes at the centre of all this. It will be going up in Swindon

:08:59.:09:03.

and it will be certainly going up in Bristol. We will find out more after

:09:04.:09:07.

the results of the council meeting later this evening.

:09:08.:09:08.

For the moment, thank you. We'll know later where the axe

:09:09.:09:12.

will fall, but one organisation is warning that planned cuts to HIV

:09:13.:09:14.

support services will fuel the growing cases

:09:15.:09:17.

of the disease in Bristol. The Brigstowe charity is waiting

to hear whether it'll If that decision is taken today, it

Matthew Hill reports. If somebody tells you that

you have a disease that can kill There's a lot of people

:09:32.:09:34.

has spoken publically It's a sign of how strongly he feels

about the closure of a charity that It was something I enjoy

support organisation who have been offering advice and support

:10:19.:10:29.

to people living or affected by HIV in the south-west

:10:30.:10:31.

for the past 21 years. The City Council, which is

:10:32.:10:33.

responsible for public health, is proposing cutting the ?86,000

groups and in addition, the stigma is higher in those

groups as well. So, we come in, as well

:10:45.:10:48.

as to support people, to work to break down that

:10:49.:10:50.

stigma as well. And Terence Higgins,

:10:51.:10:52.

the only other charity in Bristol to offer support,

:10:53.:10:54.

is about to close its doors. At best, it will only have one

:10:55.:10:57.

support worker instead of four. Two weeks ago, Points West revealed

:10:58.:11:02.

how HIV infection rates in Bristol are now over two cases for every

:11:03.:11:05.

thousand people tested, but despite this, we are not

:11:06.:11:10.

offering recommended tests to everyone registering

:11:11.:11:15.

with their GP. It is not just support that is been

:11:16.:11:20.

cut, but sexual health treatment, One consultant in sexual

:11:21.:11:24.

health here has told me that the combination of cuts

for both support and treatments Faced with national austerity

:11:31.:11:32.

cuts of ?170 million over the past six years,

:11:33.:11:37.

the City Council will today decide on how much it is prepared to spend

:11:38.:11:42.

on charities like Brigstow. Well, Paul is still

:11:43.:11:54.

outside City Hall for us. Paul, has there been any news

:11:55.:11:57.

on funding for Brigstowe yet? One possibly positive bit of news

:11:58.:12:09.

today from the council meeting is that whilst the ?86,000 is

:12:10.:12:13.

officially still a proposal to cut from that project, they have now got

:12:14.:12:16.

another funding stream which they say they will look at and examine

:12:17.:12:20.

and hopefully find some money for the important work which the project

:12:21.:12:23.

undertakes. One other thing from inside the meeting this afternoon.

:12:24.:12:28.

The Mayor of Bristol announced a new father investigation into the

:12:29.:12:30.

financial mismanagement that went on here over the last few years. Just

:12:31.:12:37.

look at the finances. This will look at the behaviour of senior managers

:12:38.:12:39.

within the organisation, some of whom are subsequently left. It will

:12:40.:12:44.

then take a decision as to whether they should be disciplinary action

:12:45.:12:46.

taken against some of those who were involved.

:12:47.:12:51.

Thank you very much for breaking that awful weather out there. More

:12:52.:13:01.

to come from Paul later after ten p.m..

:13:02.:13:04.

A parish council in South Glouestershire will hold

:13:05.:13:06.

a special meeting tonight to publicly complain

:13:07.:13:07.

Philip Winter was accused last week of posting a racist comment

:13:08.:13:11.

It led to Almondsbury Parish Council receiving complaints

:13:12.:13:15.

Mr Winter says his account was hacked, but this

:13:16.:13:18.

evening his fellow councillors will officially distance

:13:19.:13:20.

It's Seb and Liz with you this evening.

:13:21.:13:23.

Yes, and we've got lots more still to come before seven, including...

:13:24.:13:29.

The schoolgirl scaring her friends with her super strength.

:13:30.:13:35.

I'm just not going to go near her, I think. Is probably a pretty safe

:13:36.:13:38.

option. And the knitted guests who've taken

:13:39.:13:42.

up residence in a West abbey. A coroner has found that failures

:13:43.:13:47.

in communication at a Bristol hospital meant a vulnerable woman

:13:48.:13:50.

:13:51.:13:53.

she should be accompanied 67-year-old Carolyn Brock told staff

she became a voluntary patient at Southmead's Oakwood Ward,

while in the ward after saying After that meeting, they decided

:14:54.:14:57.

that she should not be allowed to leave the ward unaccompanied,

:14:58.:15:01.

but that instruction was not communicated to the people looking

:15:02.:15:04.

after her that Sunday morning. The trust accept that not

all information relating to Mrs Brock's leave arrangements

and increased risk was handed over, As the coroner acknowledged,

:15:15.:15:17.

following our own internal investigation, we have made

:15:18.:15:22.

significant changes to the way information

:15:23.:15:24.

is shared within the team. Our nurses make difficult

:15:25.:15:27.

decisions every day, balancing the clinical needs

to detain informal patients The investigation into

:15:32.:15:34.

Carolyn Brock's death said her care plan had not

:15:35.:15:43.

been sufficiently robust. Changes have since been made

:15:44.:15:47.

to try to make sure that every decision is passed on to everyone

:15:48.:15:50.

who needs to know. It's a marvel of Victorian

:15:51.:15:55.

engineering that's usually The Hewletts underground reservoir

:15:56.:15:57.

supplies all the water Now it's being drained

:15:58.:16:05.

for maintenance - giving our cameras and environment correspondent

:16:06.:16:10.

David Gregory-Kumar a rare 170 years ago, when Cheltenham

:16:11.:16:12.

was running out of water, this was the solution the Victorians

:16:13.:16:17.

came up with - Hewletts Reservoir. And today, we have a rare

:16:18.:16:23.

chance to look around. This is one of our service

:16:24.:16:27.

reservoirs, where we keep water before we deliver it

:16:28.:16:30.

to our customers. We've got it off service

:16:31.:16:33.

at the moment for part of its routine inspection,

:16:34.:16:35.

to give it a checkup, because we're looking after these

:16:36.:16:38.

old Victorian assets and we want to look

:16:39.:16:39.

after them in the long term. When full, this tank

:16:40.:16:42.

can supply Cheltenham 45 million litres of clean water,

:16:43.:16:44.

it is absolutely enormous. So, it is quite hard to get a sense

:16:45.:16:50.

of just how big it is down here. What we have asked Duncan to do

:16:51.:16:54.

is to carry on working that way, down to the far end of the tank,

:16:55.:16:58.

to try and give you an idea It took Duncan a good few

:16:59.:17:01.

minutes to walk to the far I bet there is a really

:17:02.:17:10.

long echo in here. It may be huge down here,

:17:11.:17:13.

but it's also hidden from sight. Most people have no idea

:17:14.:17:19.

the reservoir exists. As you can see, where we're

:17:20.:17:21.

standing at the moment, it just looks like a bit

:17:22.:17:23.

of a green field. People just have no clue

:17:24.:17:25.

at all about what's This is one of our biggest

:17:26.:17:28.

reservoirs where we store clean water and we have got about 500

:17:29.:17:34.

of these across the region. And they range anything

:17:35.:17:37.

from something kind of the size of your bedroom to this one,

:17:38.:17:40.

which is absolutely huge. The good news is everything looks

:17:41.:17:46.

in pretty good shape. So we had it inspected

:17:47.:17:49.

by the engineer last week All the concrete has been

:17:50.:17:51.

here for tens of years and we're going to look after it for tens

:17:52.:17:57.

of years into the future as well. Soon, this vast space will be

:17:58.:18:00.

refilled, which will take about two weeks, and then Hewletts Reservoir

:18:01.:18:03.

will continue to quietly supply water to Cheltenham just as it has

:18:04.:18:05.

done for the last 170 years. Amazing. We really would not know

:18:06.:18:16.

that was under all those green fields. Let's move on to sport.

:18:17.:18:19.

Bristol Rugby have brought in experienced coach Alan Solomons

:18:20.:18:21.

as a consultant in a last ditch attempt to stay in the Premiership.

:18:22.:18:24.

Following heavy defeats to Harlequins and Leicester,

:18:25.:18:26.

they are six points adrift at the bottom of the table.

:18:27.:18:29.

Solomons, who spent three years at Edinburgh before

:18:30.:18:31.

leaving them in September, will stay with Bristol

:18:32.:18:33.

I have known Alan for a number of years. I worked with him in 2001 in

:18:34.:18:48.

Ulster. And Chris and myself had a discussion about it. We thought it

:18:49.:18:51.

would be a good idea to bring his experience to the club, to help the

:18:52.:18:56.

coaching setup. Alan arrived yesterday, we had good meetings. It

:18:57.:19:00.

was our first aid training today and everything has gone very well so

:19:01.:19:09.

far. -- it was our first day training today.

:19:10.:19:11.

Bristol take on local rivals Bath on Sunday looking for their first

:19:12.:19:13.

The favourite for this year's Cheltenham Gold Cup will miss

:19:14.:19:17.

Thistle-crack, trained by Colin Tizzard

:19:18.:19:20.

in Somerset, has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

:19:21.:19:22.

It's not all doom and gloom at the yard as Colin does

:19:23.:19:25.

still have the second and third favourites, Native

:19:26.:19:27.

The West has an up and coming judo star

:19:28.:19:32.

and much of her success is down to her coach.

:19:33.:19:34.

Only in Charlie Whitfield's case, the coach is her dad.

:19:35.:19:39.

Gavin Whitfield introduced his daughter

:19:40.:19:42.

to Judo four years ago and she's already won gold two years

:19:43.:19:45.

Today, the duo had a family showdown in front of her classmates.

:19:46.:19:51.

Charlie can, but only because he taught her all his best

:19:52.:20:04.

She must be really strong because her dad must be really

:20:05.:20:09.

heavy, and I don't know how she flips him over.

:20:10.:20:14.

Like, I was pretty scared of her already, but now

:20:15.:20:16.

I will just not go near her, I think.

:20:17.:20:19.

Charlie has lost count of the medals she has won in just four years,

:20:20.:20:24.

including two consecutive golds at the Western area

:20:25.:20:26.

With dad for a coach, she never stops learning.

:20:27.:20:35.

We can always muck about in the house or down the street.

:20:36.:20:38.

We can always do something when we are both together.

:20:39.:20:40.

Besides her dad, Charlie has another hero.

:20:41.:20:42.

Sally Conway, also from South Gloucestershire,

:20:43.:20:44.

The Olympics. Really?

:20:45.:20:53.

Do you think that is going to happen?

:20:54.:20:56.

I think if I keep putting the effort in, I will get there.

:20:57.:20:59.

She is talking Olympic standard, which is quite a high standard

:21:00.:21:02.

to sort of pitch at such a young age.

:21:03.:21:04.

But it is also, again, determination and that drive

:21:05.:21:06.

So it is great that she is talking of that, but I am sort of doing

:21:07.:21:13.

Charlie is not just a judo star, she is also

:21:14.:21:21.

And she has to make sure she's keeping up with the class,

:21:22.:21:25.

despite training and trips away to judo tournaments.

:21:26.:21:27.

A lot of them don't want to get on the wrong side of Charlie.

:21:28.:21:34.

But just watching her and how determined she is, and also,

:21:35.:21:37.

when she doesn't necessarily win every time, she can come back

:21:38.:21:40.

That is such a great trait for children to see

:21:41.:21:44.

A week Friday, Charlie is in Croatia competing.

:21:45.:21:49.

It is all part of her larger judo journey, and who knows

:21:50.:21:52.

For sure, Dad will always be by her side.

:21:53.:22:01.

You would want Charlie as a mate, wouldn't you?

:22:02.:22:06.

Tewkesbury Abbey has been taken over by nearly a hundred knitted monks.

:22:07.:22:10.

The woolly figures have been made for the Monks In The Abbey

:22:11.:22:15.

Exhibition and those behind it are hoping there could

:22:16.:22:17.

Natasha Turney has been to have a look.

:22:18.:22:20.

Monks have always been a big part of the history of Tewkesbury Abbey.

:22:21.:22:23.

Around 20 woolly visitors took up residence here a few years ago,

:22:24.:22:30.

with the collection growing year-on-year.

:22:31.:22:36.

I thought that as the abbey used to have a monastery attached,

:22:37.:22:39.

it would be a good idea to celebrate this fact.

:22:40.:22:41.

And although the monastery has been pulled down now,

:22:42.:22:44.

we still have this wonderful abbey, and let's celebrate the fact

:22:45.:22:46.

They may only be ten centimetres tall, but they are proving

:22:47.:22:51.

It is really, really nice and unexpected.

:22:52.:22:55.

I am very impressed with the amount of work people have put into this

:22:56.:22:58.

And I hope it continues for a long time.

:22:59.:23:09.

Out of the 91 monks that are here, 85 were hand-knitted

:23:10.:23:12.

Well, they are on outreach in the community, letting people

:23:13.:23:18.

And soon there are set to be even more.

:23:19.:23:24.

Well, the Abbey, in 2021, will be 900 years old since

:23:25.:23:27.

And we hope to have 900 monks here to celebrate a monk for every

:23:28.:23:34.

That works out at around 120 extra each year,

:23:35.:23:40.

and so the church are looking for help from the whole community

:23:41.:23:43.

So, it is going to mean a lot more organising,

:23:44.:23:50.

knitting, crocheting, putting together, and we just

:23:51.:23:59.

hope the community will come and join us.

:24:00.:24:01.

The monks here will stay on display until the end of February.

:24:02.:24:07.

After that, it is time to get the knitting needles out and start

:24:08.:24:10.

Can you make? I think I know the answer but I will ask anyway.

:24:11.:24:20.

I can't, but I am always impressed with people who can. My mother used

:24:21.:24:24.

to knit my cricket jumpers and then shrink them in the wash.

:24:25.:24:27.

Sara Thornton is in the BBC Weather centre.

:24:28.:24:31.

Can you make? -- knit? No, but I know more about the

:24:32.:24:50.

weather. It is not very inspiring the pictures. Pretty cloudy for most

:24:51.:24:54.

of us. Some rain in there as well. Heavy rain in the north-west. You

:24:55.:24:58.

can notice the strike of cloud behind me. That is a frontal system

:24:59.:25:03.

that will sink towards us tonight and introduce yet more rainforest. A

:25:04.:25:08.

lot of it will be knocked out by the Welsh mountains. As we had tonight

:25:09.:25:14.

into tomorrow morning. But there will be some alone, which leads us

:25:15.:25:18.

to a quite damp 24 hours ahead for us. Little bits and pieces of rain

:25:19.:25:24.

coming through the night. You can see it as just some towards us.

:25:25.:25:28.

Crucially, it doesn't quite get to us with any cold the Arsenal will be

:25:29.:25:32.

another mild night. At 10 Celsius, 50 in Fahrenheit, above what we

:25:33.:25:38.

would expect by Dave Lewis time of year. Let alone night. We start the

:25:39.:25:43.

morning on a mild zero, but it is mild and damp and breezy as well.

:25:44.:25:48.

The winds will be a feature of the weather tomorrow. Bits and pieces of

:25:49.:25:52.

rain around. The odd heavy bursts potentially but the rain knocked out

:25:53.:25:59.

mostly by the Welsh mountains. As I said, it is a breezy day and another

:26:00.:26:03.

mild one again. Temperatures like today, the low teens, 12, maybe 13

:26:04.:26:08.

Celsius. If you have any interest in the weather and you have been across

:26:09.:26:11.

the news, you might be aware there is a storm heading for the UK on

:26:12.:26:17.

Thursday. Storm Doris, a named storm from the Met Office. We see it as

:26:18.:26:21.

rain through the morning and then strengthening winds as the rain

:26:22.:26:23.

pulls away into the early part of the afternoon. I want to talk you

:26:24.:26:28.

through the weather warnings. We're not really affected by the very

:26:29.:26:31.

worst of Storm Doris. A lot of it was the north of the UK. This yellow

:26:32.:26:35.

be aware warning for the strength of the wind is just clips into

:26:36.:26:40.

Gloucestershire. Further south, we could even see significant wind

:26:41.:26:46.

gusts. From the cold front, that rain battles through in the morning,

:26:47.:26:49.

it is gone by mid morning and then the sunshine behind it. Temperatures

:26:50.:26:54.

fall away goes on and the wind gusts will be significant. Here are the

:26:55.:26:59.

gusts we are talking about, in excess of 50 mph which could be

:27:00.:27:04.

disrupted for a time. 10 Celsius before that pulls away. Once the

:27:05.:27:09.

winds get in, it will then feel chillier. Friday could start with

:27:10.:27:13.

some ground frost. It is cooler feeling on Friday but lack into

:27:14.:27:15.

double figures by Saturday. Thank you very much. Storm Doris

:27:16.:27:23.

sound so calm. It sounds like a sweet person, not a horrible storm!

:27:24.:27:32.

We are back with you in the Ten O'Clock News. We will have the

:27:33.:27:35.

details from the council budget meeting that we sought Paul at.

:27:36.:27:41.

Still there in the rain, no doubt! Hopefully he will be back in from

:27:42.:27:46.

the rain. We will see you for the Ten O'Clock News. Goodbye.
