A good evening from points West. for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:16.

A big clear-up is under way near Warminster in Wiltshire

:00:17.:00:18.

Police seized sound equipment at Quebec Farm in Chitterne

:00:19.:00:23.

and moved on hundreds of people on Saturday night.

:00:24.:00:29.

Another bank holiday weekend, another illegal rave

:00:30.:00:31.

This old farm shed was turned into a remote nightclub.

:00:32.:00:40.

About 500 to 1,000 people crammed into here on Saturday night

:00:41.:00:43.

floor, is even a tent left from

:00:44.:00:49.

People in town centres are brawling with people,

:00:50.:01:07.

party like this there are all from different walks of life

:01:08.:01:11.

and it's all happy and fun and then you go

:01:12.:01:13.

home and get back to your normal day jobs.

:01:14.:01:16.

But it all makes the day job more of a night shift

:01:17.:01:18.

Yeah, they were coming across the field, right across there.

:01:19.:01:22.

Jane and her staff were up all night.

:01:23.:01:25.

Police were called to stop the hundreds turning into thousands.

:01:26.:01:27.

The force helicopter flew above the farm.

:01:28.:01:32.

We had cattle in this field which are now in the

:01:33.:01:37.

shed because the fence is broken there

:01:38.:01:38.

and end of the other end, where

:01:39.:01:40.

back memories of 2009, when 4000 turned up here

:01:41.:01:44.

Just real anger and the adrenaline was rushing because I was

:01:45.:01:55.

so angry at the sheer recklessness of it all.

:01:56.:01:58.

They just do not understand the damage they can cause

:01:59.:02:00.

when they are en masse, and they think they just

:02:01.:02:04.

have the right to go anywhere they like.

:02:05.:02:06.

Things like that shouldn't really be happening.

:02:07.:02:08.

People should have more respect when they come

:02:09.:02:10.

down here to these sort places but, I think it's everyone trying to get

:02:11.:02:14.

there and once you try to get back , you've ghad your pary and you're

:02:15.:02:17.

just trying to get home sop you just stumble across

:02:18.:02:20.

I don't think it's all done deliberately.

:02:21.:02:22.

rave just 15 miles away near Amesbury the following day,

:02:23.:02:26.

it's been quite an Easter weekend for the farmers and villagers around

:02:27.:02:29.

An ATM machine has been stolen from inside the Waitrose supermarket

:02:30.:02:46.

The raid happened sometime between on Saturday night

:02:47.:02:48.

and the early hours of Easter Sunday.

:02:49.:02:50.

Police will not reveal how much money was taken

:02:51.:02:52.

Nurses from India could soon be working at one

:02:53.:02:55.

Staff from Musgrove Park in Somerset have visited Kochi in Southern India

:02:56.:03:00.

In the past, the hospital has recruited from Europe but chose

:03:01.:03:10.

India because of the high standards of nursing there.

:03:11.:03:12.

They're expected to take up positions in Taunton.

:03:13.:03:19.

When it was built 251 years ago the Bristol Old Vic theatre

:03:20.:03:22.

But now, for the very first time the outside wall can

:03:23.:03:26.

It's all part of demolition work taking plae as part of a 25 million

:03:27.:03:30.

pound refurbishment project Lee Madan reports.

:03:31.:03:35.

After years of fundraising and months of demolition work

:03:36.:03:38.

knocking down the building that blocks it from view.

:03:39.:03:40.

The Bristol Old Vic now stands exposed.

:03:41.:03:43.

Behind us you can now see the original theatre wall.

:03:44.:03:48.

When it was first built, it was hidden behind two houses

:03:49.:03:54.

which stood here on King Street, owned by a Mr Foot and a Mr Gill.

:03:55.:03:57.

If you wanted to get to the theatre, you had to knock on the door and ask

:03:58.:04:02.

Depending who you ask, it was either because it was really

:04:03.:04:05.

helpful to hide the theatre, because it was quite a secretive,

:04:06.:04:12.

quite polemic activity to put to put theatre on,

:04:13.:04:15.

and maybe it was just a bit of land that was available and they took

:04:16.:04:19.

Either way, without Mr Foot and Mr Gill's cooperation

:04:20.:04:23.

there would never have been in Old Vic.

:04:24.:04:25.

Their houses have been be placed several times over the years,

:04:26.:04:27.

meaning that the theatre itself has stayed hidden - until now.

:04:28.:04:32.

But, despite the many rebuilds, parts of Mr Foot's house remain

:04:33.:04:35.

We're finding little bits of his house still in existence actually,

:04:36.:04:40.

because even though much of the 18th-century fabric was taken

:04:41.:04:42.

down in the early 20th century, and of course, it's all gone again

:04:43.:04:45.

We found a fireplace, bits of brickwork from his house,

:04:46.:04:49.

so we're trying to bring his character alive again.

:04:50.:04:51.

Maybe when people become and visit here next year when we're reopened,

:04:52.:04:54.

we'll be able to tell the story of Mr Foot a little bit.

:04:55.:04:57.

Not all of the money for this multi-million pound rebuild

:04:58.:05:01.

The public will be asked to contribute to the final push

:05:02.:05:08.

with donations this autumn, then the building work is due to be

:05:09.:05:11.

To football and all of our local sides played today.

:05:12.:05:22.

Bristol City drew 1-1 against fellow Championship

:05:23.:05:24.

In League One, Bristol Rovers beat Oldham at home 1-0 and Swindon lost

:05:25.:05:30.

Cheltenham Town gave their League Two survival hopes a major lift

:05:31.:05:36.

with a 2-1 home win over Grimsby Town.

:05:37.:05:38.

Yeovil had a comfortable 3-0 win over Crewe at Huish Park.

:05:39.:05:43.

And in the National League Forest, Green Rovers bid for promotion

:05:44.:05:46.

was not helped by a 2-0 defeat by bottom of the table Southport.

:05:47.:05:55.

Now, just before the weather, many of you may been looking

:05:56.:05:57.

for the Easter bunny and eggs this weekend but there've been

:05:58.:06:00.

reports of something very different in Somerset.

:06:01.:06:01.

This photo of what looks like a big cat was taken on the Quantocks

:06:02.:06:05.

They managed to get this snap before it disappeared.

:06:06.:06:14.

Well, we did see a little bit of sunshine today,

:06:15.:06:19.

but for most of us it has been largely cloudy.

:06:20.:06:21.

I think as we head through the week, we should see a bit more sunshine.

:06:22.:06:24.

We've got a few showers out there, but they are tending

:06:25.:06:27.

to clear and they've been very isolated today.

:06:28.:06:29.

As we go to tonight, skies will clear and, actually,

:06:30.:06:31.

We got light winds and we could even get temperatures temperatures

:06:32.:06:36.

a little bit lower than this in sheltered rural spots.

:06:37.:06:39.

So, do be prepared for a touch of frost first thing tomorrow.

:06:40.:06:41.

But, it's going to be a beautiful day, dry and bright,

:06:42.:06:44.

a lot of sunshine, almost unbroken for many of us.

:06:45.:06:46.

We might see a bit of fair-weather cloud builing

:06:47.:06:49.

Light winds again, and I think in the sunshine, one

:06:50.:06:52.

or two spots could hit 14, perhaps even 15 degrees.

:06:53.:06:54.

So, it's staying rather settled as we head through this week and,

:06:55.:06:57.

actually, there is very little rain in the forecast.

:06:58.:06:59.

I think on Wednesday we'll see a widespread and quite severe frost,

:07:00.:07:03.

temperatures could well dip below freezing in some rural spots.

:07:04.:07:07.

By day, a lot of sunshine, light winds.

:07:08.:07:09.

We'll see a little bit more cloud pushing in towards the tail end

:07:10.:07:12.

of the week, so perhaps not as cold overnight and temperatures

:07:13.:07:15.

Gosh, I thought we had seen the last of the frost. That's all for the

:07:16.:07:28.

moment, we'll be back later with another date. By my.

:07:29.:07:42.

Hopefully you managed to enjoy some good weather this Easter. It has not

:07:43.:07:49.

been ideal but it has not been that bad. Pretty cold tonight. Sharp

:07:50.:07:54.

frost on the way in role areas and across northern parts. The skies are

:07:55.:07:57.

not clear just yet but they are starting to clear. By the end of the

:07:58.:08:08.

night, those temperatures will tumble across Scotland, maybe as low

:08:09.:08:15.

minus eight. No surprise this time of the year. We do get frost, but

:08:16.:08:19.

this could be even damaging. Tomorrow morning, it is looking

:08:20.:08:25.

sunny for most of us but the wind is light in the sun will be out. A

:08:26.:08:28.

beautiful day

:08:29.:08:29.
