state. Last summer, Josh Walker joined them to work as a translator

:01:38.:01:42.

but found himself being handed a gun and joining the action. One of our

:01:43.:01:47.

snipers saw an Islamic state member and shot them, and they were just a

massive fight. Mortars where fired at us, a little bit of sniper fire

over our heads, so this was the first full on attack. For the first

other foreign volunteers carried either a spare bullet or a grenade

:02:40.:02:43.

Wiltshire Police will give more details about a new line of enquiry

:04:12.:04:14.

- a postcard allegedly sent by Sally Ann after she disappeared,

:04:15.:04:18.

which they say is fake. Here's our Wiltshire

:04:19.:04:22.

Reporter Will Glennon. Sally Ann John was just 23 years

:04:23.:04:25.

old when she disappeared. She was born and brought up in

:04:26.:04:30.

Swindon and lived in the Nythe area. She'd been working as a prostitute

:04:31.:04:35.

in Manchester Road But on the eighth September

:04:36.:04:37.

1995 she vanished. For almost 20 years she was treated

:04:38.:04:45.

as a missing person. Then in November 2014

police declared it was now Specialist dogs trained to detect

after she disappeared. Detectives don't believe

:08:41.:08:45.

early by a selfish act. The driver had plenty of time to act, the

devastation caused continues to be a miserable. We will never forget the

pleasure she gave us. Judge Morris said in sentencing he had taken a

cavalier attitude to using a mobile phone while driving. She said, you

The England women's rugby team are back home after claiming

the Six Nations title for the first time in five years.

:14:01.:14:04.

Eight of the squad play for Bristol Ladies,

:14:05.:14:06.

and we have three of them in the studio this evening with our

:14:07.:14:09.

the Grand Slam, winning all five games.

:14:10.:14:22.

Welcome to Marlie Packer, Izzy Noel-Smith and Poppy Cleall,

:14:23.:14:26.

Has its own Ken? It is such a special occasion for all of us, and

:14:27.:14:40.

after waiting that long, five years, the heartbreak last year, it has

:14:41.:14:44.

been fantastic. Forget team England for one minute, was it nice to go

:14:45.:14:49.

one better than the men? The men won back-to-back, with their six Nations

:14:50.:14:55.

championship. The Grand Slam is such a special thing to win. We are

:14:56.:15:00.

looking at the pictures of you celebrating. You have a lot of fun,

:15:01.:15:09.

danger? How special was it for you? Very special moment. It is my second

:15:10.:15:15.

Grand Slam for England. The last time was in 2012. That was accident

:15:16.:15:20.

last time I had been part of an England six Nations squad, so to

:15:21.:15:23.

come back and get the Grand Slam again had just been awesome. Coming

:15:24.:15:33.

back is great to be with my buddies. You are calm now, but is fair to say

:15:34.:15:38.

you were fairly excitable on Friday night. Have a look at this. We did

:15:39.:15:44.

think it was great to be a tough match, my friend from the West

:15:45.:15:54.

Country with a nice big trophy. Five years, five years. Sorry, mate. I

:15:55.:16:00.

apologise for her. That meant quite a lot, didn't it? I don't know what

:16:01.:16:09.

I was thinking, I've just happy. You are all on contract with England,

:16:10.:16:14.

say you get paid to play rugby these days, but you are a trained plumber.

:16:15.:16:19.

Yes. You been doing a little bit of work today. Just a little bit, my

:16:20.:16:25.

Nan has been on my case for fitting a new radiator. So I look back on

:16:26.:16:31.

the diving ages ago, she got her kitchen refurbished. Goes like this

:16:32.:16:37.

ship is yet having a World Cup winner and grand slam winner? Yes,

:16:38.:16:43.

she loves it. She doesn't watch them live, it gets recorded, visual watch

:16:44.:16:51.

it later. The World Cup is an island, isn't it? This might be

:16:52.:16:57.

perfect preparation. It was great to go out there when the World Cup is

:16:58.:17:01.

going to be, in front of a big crowd of screening for Highland in such a

:17:02.:17:06.

important day, St Patrick's Day. The former great as a team, it was a

:17:07.:17:10.

good fit for us going into the World Cup. You are flying the flag for

:17:11.:17:13.

Bristol as well, and it is nearly the end of last season, you are top

:17:14.:17:18.

of the table. I knew going to win the premiership title fight Bristol

:17:19.:17:20.

ladies in the premiership title fight Bristol ladies got a

:17:21.:17:24.

first-time? It has been competitive, the going into the last game of the

:17:25.:17:27.

season top of the table, don't think that vessel has been there before,

:17:28.:17:32.

so we had to put our heart and soul to winning the premiership. That is

:17:33.:17:37.

all I can say. The game is Friday, last game of the season, better let

:17:38.:17:41.

you get some rest. It has been great to have you in here.

:17:42.:17:51.

Congratulations. I've got if you've plumbing jobs that are jobs for you.

:17:52.:17:59.

There is enough here for a scrum. Just joking.

:18:00.:18:01.

Bristolians have always been sure they live in a great place,

:18:02.:18:04.

Bristol has been named as the best place to live in the UK,

:18:05.:18:11.

in a a survey carried out by the Sunday Times.

:18:12.:18:14.

It took into account all sorts of things,

:18:15.:18:16.

including house prices, schools and the views of readers.

:18:17.:18:20.

Liz Beacon's been out to see what makes the city so special.

:18:21.:18:37.

Bristol, with its bridge and its balloons.

:18:38.:18:42.

But on a day like today, can Bristol really feel cool,

:18:43.:18:50.

Well, Banksy's place in this city is well established.

:18:51.:19:01.

He's at the heart of everything here in Stokes Croft,

:19:02.:19:04.

which easily ticks the box of being cool.

:19:05.:19:14.

It has a funky vibe, it is down to earth and it is real. It is a great

:19:15.:19:26.

place with of young people, but of culture, mostly. I've been here

:19:27.:19:30.

since been 1960s, there is nothing like Bristol. I go quite a few

:19:31.:19:34.

places and I still come back and I like to come back to Bristol.

:19:35.:19:35.

For creativity we're spoilt for choice.

:19:36.:19:37.

But the Paintworks has labelled itself the city's creative quarter,

:19:38.:19:39.

The cool thing if there is lots of young businesses, so they've only

:19:40.:19:55.

been going several months or a feud years, so it is really cool to see

:19:56.:19:58.

different businesses spend up, and us as a group and interior designer,

:19:59.:20:04.

photographer, graphic designer, it is cruel to mix so many different

:20:05.:20:09.

disciplines. Anybody starting out, so we asked the racial, hungry and

:20:10.:20:11.

excited. Of course there's Clifton -

:20:12.:20:13.

it has class written all over it. But Bristol's waterfront has been

:20:14.:20:17.

transformed over the years. And these containers

:20:18.:20:19.

are the latest arrival. Lots of independent... Blowing up

:20:20.:20:27.

over the scene, it is great. If there's one complaint

:20:28.:20:35.

about the city it comes Terrible transport, diabolical

:20:36.:20:37.

parking. But those are subjects for another

:20:38.:20:47.

day, because today it's Well, as if more proof were needed

:20:48.:20:49.

about how creative the West This huge replica

:20:50.:20:59.

of the moon has been installed in the Great Hall

:21:00.:21:04.

at the University of Bristol. It's the work of artist Luke Jerram,

:21:05.:21:07.

the man behind things like pianos in the city centre, boats

:21:08.:21:12.

installed as art in woodland, and the giant water slide in Bristol

:21:13.:21:18.

a couple of years ago. Makarova coming in. It looks just

:21:19.:21:41.

mesmerising. You got a little bit of blue in the studio to try and enjoy

:21:42.:21:47.

it. People can go along and see this, can't a? Yes it is a seven

:21:48.:21:51.

metre diameter sphere, a moon that we have suspended in the building at

:21:52.:21:57.

the top of Park Street, and it is a free artwork installed in the

:21:58.:22:03.

University to celebrate the inauguration of the new Tesla, but

:22:04.:22:07.

it is an opportunity for people to go and inspect the moon as they have

:22:08.:22:11.

never seen a poor. We have got a massive 5.5 GB image imprinted onto

:22:12.:22:17.

the surface, so every detail, every crater and ballet can be expected.

:22:18.:22:22.

It was done in strips and strips and had to be put on. You can also spend

:22:23.:22:28.

time looking at the dark side of the moon. On earth you only get to see

:22:29.:22:33.

the front face of the moon, or these dark patches. This is the first

:22:34.:22:37.

opportunity the public will have to go to the far side of the moon and

:22:38.:22:43.

sort of see what it looks like. You weren't tempted to put any surprises

:22:44.:22:46.

in like Little green men are something like that? There are

:22:47.:22:50.

amazing surprises, so it is incredibly dark on the south pole,

:22:51.:22:53.

that's because it doesn't get any light. Scientists are excited about

:22:54.:22:57.

the size pool because there is ice there in the craters that never

:22:58.:23:02.

melts. Isn't it funny that when was the last time we were on the moon?

:23:03.:23:09.

1972? That is just incredible, it seems that... Abbey ever going to go

Yes, and touring this new artwork around the world, and comparing all

the different cultures, because every culture has been inspired by

Museum of the moon is this new art project that people can moon bathed

Europe. The artwork was very much inspired by living in Bristol and

back the street piano project. They will be 15 or 20 yellows distributed

across the country batter city for people to play. It is a blank canvas

:24:30.:24:31.

for the public to express themselves. It is nice to have you

:24:32.:24:38.

here. There is no support from the City Council, so we are looking for

:24:39.:24:42.

businesses around Bristol and the south-west to support each of these

:24:43.:24:48.

individual pianos. Well the call is there. They are listening. Thank

:24:49.:24:49.

way in Somerset today. Our cameraman captured glorious

green fields and these lambs kicking up their heels

in the spring sunshine. High, Alex. Let's put up the

:25:33.:25:48.

forecast as we head on into tomorrow, this was the things we

:25:49.:25:52.

were seeing earlier stopped it was a bit grim, with a gamut of rain

:25:53.:25:56.

about. Into tomorrow, it is going to be a story of the balance between

:25:57.:26:01.

drier sunnier phases and showers. Some of them will be frequent and

:26:02.:26:06.

heavy. Potential wintry flavour in the uplands, Hill in the lower

:26:07.:26:09.

levels with the heaviest showers. Underpinning that it will be a

:26:10.:26:13.

chilly day, and that is because we're importing Canadian air, albeit

:26:14.:26:19.

in the first day of spring today, it is a winter like pattern that is

:26:20.:26:24.

developing over the next few days. That will be accompanied by quite a

:26:25.:26:29.

number of showers for some of you, particularly health was in the west.

:26:30.:26:32.

For the rest of this evening through tonight, a good deal of dry weather,

:26:33.:26:37.

we can rule out further showers at times, the balance will be more

:26:38.:26:41.

towards drier and clearer weather tonight, but it will be a mostly

:26:42.:26:47.

chilly story but temperatures around one or three Celsius by daybreak.

:26:48.:26:51.

Many of you get underway on a dry and sunny note, but quite quickly

:26:52.:26:55.

showers are starting to pack into the west, you will see a flavour

:26:56.:27:01.

something wintry there. As I mentioned, and lower levels there

:27:02.:27:04.

will be heavier showers which may pack some hail as well as heavy

:27:05.:27:08.

downpours. Not everywhere necessarily seen many of those. In

:27:09.:27:14.

the evening, interaction between a plume of warm air and that cold air

:27:15.:27:20.

from the other side which is developing heavy rain overnight.

:27:21.:27:23.

Temperatures tomorrow will feel a bit chillier, 79 Celsius. Heavy rain

:27:24.:27:32.

overnight on Wednesday, that will gradually clear away. Drive through

:27:33.:27:35.

the course of the afternoon. We will see improvements by the weekend, it

:27:36.:27:38.

will be turning milder by Ben. The 24-year-old man

:27:39.:27:57.

has been charged with murder. You made sure an innocent man

:27:58.:28:00.

is charged! What gives you the right

:28:01.:28:02.

to say that he's innocent? If police wrongdoing

:28:03.:28:04.

is part of this, I want to know. Huntley's definitely

hiding something.
