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

:00:00.:00:00.

Our main story tonight: Broken hips lead to the death

:00:00.:00:07.

of thousands of elderly people, but now a Bristol study

:00:08.:00:14.

shows many could be saved if the operation is done quickly.

:00:15.:00:24.

The difference between operating on patients within 24 hours or 36 could

:00:25.:00:26.

be life altering. Our other headlines tonight:

:00:27.:00:30.

The Green party launches its national campaign in Bristol

:00:31.:00:33.

with a plea for opposition parties to work together

:00:34.:00:36.

against the Conservatives. Up close and personal -

:00:37.:00:40.

the six candidates who want to be Metro Mayor line up

:00:41.:00:45.

for a BBC West debate. And her memory lives on -

:00:46.:00:47.

a charity race to reflect the life of a young rider who died

:00:48.:00:50.

from cancer. Hundreds of lives could be saved

:00:51.:00:59.

if people with hip fractures are operated on more quickly,

:01:00.:01:03.

according to the biggest study Researchers at Southmead

:01:04.:01:05.

Hospital analysed a quarter of a million patients

:01:06.:01:10.

and found fewer died if they'd made into the operating

:01:11.:01:13.

theatre within 24 hours. Here's our Health

:01:14.:01:18.

Correspondent Matthew Hill. His report contains pictures

:01:19.:01:19.

of an operation carried Doreen had just had an operation to

:01:20.:01:37.

mend her hip after falling at home. I crawled over because I knew my

:01:38.:01:41.

handbag was behind the chair and I could get my mobile to phone my son.

:01:42.:01:46.

Unfortunately, it was about 14 inches away and I could not in any

:01:47.:01:51.

weight at that back, so after about an hour and a half, I managed to get

:01:52.:01:57.

artificial flowers and I managed to find the longest one which I hoped

:01:58.:02:01.

around the handle and managed to get the handbag and get the phone and I

:02:02.:02:05.

phoned my son and he was over within a quarter of an hour. She was

:02:06.:02:10.

operated on within 36 hours of her fault. Hospitals are given a bonus

:02:11.:02:14.

payment if they are able to get patients such as Doreen into the

:02:15.:02:18.

operating theatre within a day and a half. This patient broker hit last

:02:19.:02:22.

night. She is already being operated on. A study here at Southmead

:02:23.:02:32.

suggests that if patients get their operation within 24 hours, more

:02:33.:02:34.

lives could be saved. Southmead is the leading hospital in the country

:02:35.:02:36.

when it comes to gathering data about how patients do after their

:02:37.:02:39.

operations. Researchers have analysed more than a quarter of a

:02:40.:02:42.

million of patients across the country. 8% more patients died they

:02:43.:02:47.

were operated on between 24 and 36 hours compared to those given

:02:48.:02:52.

surgery within 24 hours. And the risk increased to 20% for those

:02:53.:02:58.

receiving surgery after 48 hours. There are certain patients to

:02:59.:03:00.

benefit from greater time to get them better but before their

:03:01.:03:05.

surgical procedure. Surgical procedures are not without risk. It

:03:06.:03:08.

is only one part of the care we need to give them. We need to support

:03:09.:03:12.

them with their bone health and with getting up their independence and

:03:13.:03:15.

mobility and it is one important part of their care. I think we have

:03:16.:03:19.

shown for the first time that early surgery in those patients we can get

:03:20.:03:23.

better quicker is much better for them. The huge database Southmead

:03:24.:03:27.

built-up identifies those hospitals that have higher death rates. The

:03:28.:03:31.

latest registry shows that patients having this type of operation at

:03:32.:03:35.

Gloucester Royal have been far more likely to die within 30 days in

:03:36.:03:41.

recent years. For instance, in 2014, the death rate was 12.5% compared

:03:42.:03:46.

with the national average of 7.5%. And also Western General Hospital

:03:47.:03:51.

has been an outlier. Western trust say they realised they needed to do

:03:52.:03:55.

better and have already introduced a number of measures to improve

:03:56.:03:59.

outcomes. The Gloucester Royal say their latest figures are now in line

:04:00.:04:06.

with the national average. Now politics.

:04:07.:04:07.

The Green Party chose Bristol today to launch

:04:08.:04:09.

The hastily arranged event came just 48 hours

:04:10.:04:13.

after Theresa May shocked the nation, naming

:04:14.:04:15.

And the Greens have their own radical plan

:04:16.:04:18.

Our political editor Paul Barltrop is here.

:04:19.:04:21.

It could have been because of the beautiful view, a lovely setting,

:04:22.:04:33.

right beside the Clifton suspension Bridge on the edge of the gorge

:04:34.:04:37.

there. PB Beeson was that this is in the Bristol West constituency, which

:04:38.:04:41.

is the Greens top target for this coming general election. In 2015,

:04:42.:04:46.

they came second to Labour. They have helped quite a few council

:04:47.:04:49.

seats in the area. The key messages were things like the NHS, care for

:04:50.:04:53.

the environment, doing more for young people, which they think will

:04:54.:04:56.

do well in the constituency. Bristol West had one of the highest votes to

:04:57.:05:01.

remain in the European Union, so they will make a big issue of

:05:02.:05:03.

Brexit. It is so vital that we send a clear

:05:04.:05:09.

message. We have a Government here that has listened to Ukip. Ukip said

:05:10.:05:17.

jump and the Government have said how high. We are the antidote to

:05:18.:05:23.

Ukip. Is that not what the Liberal Democrats are saying? It is, but

:05:24.:05:25.

they are suggesting doing something of a deal. Look at Gloucestershire,

:05:26.:05:30.

which is one example they have come up with. They would like those two

:05:31.:05:34.

parties to stand aside so they can try to oust the Conservatives in

:05:35.:05:37.

Stroud. They would then stand back and asked the Lib Dems to stand back

:05:38.:05:41.

in Gloucester saw that Labour could put the Conservatives out there and

:05:42.:05:44.

in jobs and, the Lib Dems will be the party of choice to get rid of

:05:45.:05:48.

the conservative there. That is the idea and their candidate has been

:05:49.:05:52.

talking about it since last year. This time, they have actually

:05:53.:05:55.

listened to the leaders of the other two parties. Caroline Lucas, their

:05:56.:05:58.

leader has been telling us a bit more.

:05:59.:06:02.

Under this electoral system, it is very hard for people's views to be

:06:03.:06:07.

properly represented, so people live in safe seats and their drugs do not

:06:08.:06:11.

council we want to look at marginals and Siegfried and have discussions

:06:12.:06:13.

with the other parties and see if they can be in agreement about

:06:14.:06:19.

perhaps having paper candidates a we put more emphasis on one of the

:06:20.:06:23.

other ones to beat an extreme Tory. But what Caroline Lucas did not say

:06:24.:06:26.

there is that at Bristol West, the seat they want the most, it is held

:06:27.:06:30.

by Labour at the moment and they are second saw this will not happen.

:06:31.:06:33.

Certainly not in some of the key target seats like Bristol West,

:06:34.:06:37.

absolutely. But what they say is it will just be in some places. What do

:06:38.:06:41.

the other party thing? I do not think they will warm to the idea.

:06:42.:06:46.

Labour certainly want to put a candidate in every constituency. The

:06:47.:06:50.

Lib Dems would be doing that in principle, but interesting to note

:06:51.:06:54.

that Paddy Ashdown, formal Yeovil MP said today, well done the Greens for

:06:55.:06:59.

reaching out for sensible seat arrangements were these can be done.

:07:00.:07:03.

Labour and Lib Dems should respond positively. Interesting to see where

:07:04.:07:07.

this one ends up. OK, Paul. Thank you.

:07:08.:07:08.

And of course we've got other elections before all that

:07:09.:07:11.

and the six candidates in the running for the West

:07:12.:07:13.

of England Metro Mayor will feature in a special debate tonight.

:07:14.:07:16.

It's a chance for the people in the running for the new role

:07:17.:07:20.

to take questions from the audience on issues including

:07:21.:07:22.

housing and transport - and to outline how they'll

:07:23.:07:24.

promote our region on a national and international stage.

:07:25.:07:26.

80 people, six candidates, one brand new position,

:07:27.:07:40.

This is their interview with you, the voters.

:07:41.:07:42.

almost three quarters of a million eligible voters across Bristol,

:07:43.:07:44.

South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset.

:07:45.:07:47.

And one of these candidates is a metro mayor in the making

:07:48.:07:50.

and will have a new job come May the 5th.

:07:51.:07:55.

You concerned about voter turnout? The idea that we can get more say

:07:56.:08:01.

about our own future is very important. I am not in favour of a

:08:02.:08:06.

soft Brexit. I am actually against Brexit absolutely. I think it will

:08:07.:08:08.

be damaging to the regional economy. This debate putting their policies

:08:09.:08:10.

through their paces in front of an audience of current leaders

:08:11.:08:12.

and members of the public too. And this is the biggest opportunity

:08:13.:08:21.

in a generation that we have to have some control back here. What I want

:08:22.:08:25.

to see as Metro Mayor is the three local authorities working together,

:08:26.:08:26.

but no wider than that. Whoever's elected will be in charge

:08:27.:08:28.

of a billion pound budget. Their portfolio includes

:08:29.:08:31.

planning and housing, Is it worth it? What is the point? I

:08:32.:08:45.

think the really important thing is that it actually makes somebody

:08:46.:08:47.

accountable for the investment and opportunities clearly defined in

:08:48.:08:52.

what those powers are. I see how valuable are green and open spaces

:08:53.:08:56.

are and I will protect them. They need protecting. For wildlife and

:08:57.:08:57.

also for our mental well-being. But the three authorities already

:08:58.:08:59.

have elected leaders. The successful metro mayor will need

:09:00.:09:01.

to work alongside them too. You can't come in like a Bigfoot

:09:02.:09:12.

because actually we are here and if you disturb those relationships it

:09:13.:09:16.

will cause a problem. You have all come over 30 years that I have in my

:09:17.:09:19.

business group tried to do things, failed to have ambition.

:09:20.:09:21.

The vote for the metro mayor is the same day as local council

:09:22.:09:24.

You can watch the whole debate after the late

:09:25.:09:27.

So that's me with "A Mayor for the West of England" -

:09:28.:09:33.

Still to come on tonight's Points West:

:09:34.:09:51.

Signalling the end of the American crayfish.

:09:52.:09:53.

Find out why they're fishing out the foreign invaders

:09:54.:09:55.

And barring the odd spot of light rain, the rest of this week is

:09:56.:10:09.

looking dry, but all change next week. Details at the end of the

:10:10.:10:11.

programme. A scheme which allows former rough

:10:12.:10:13.

sleepers to live in converted council buildings is to be

:10:14.:10:15.

expanded in Bristol. Beds are rented out to those

:10:16.:10:18.

who are free of drink and drug problems,

:10:19.:10:22.

but who can't afford So far there are 19 rooms -

:10:23.:10:23.

it's hoped that will more than double in the next year and be

:10:24.:10:32.

rolled out to other parts So use to sleep down here by the

:10:33.:10:35.

Royals -- Lloyds building? But his zero-hours contract made it

:10:36.:10:46.

hard to rent a room. Christmas Eve I spent a year.

:10:47.:11:02.

Christmas morning I woke up here. So it was a little bit depressing.

:11:03.:11:06.

Fortunately, Clive was spotted by support workers.

:11:07.:11:08.

It's a former community centre in Hartcliffe.

:11:09.:11:14.

Two kitchens, plenty of toilets. There are six of those here with six

:11:15.:11:17.

separate rooms. This old office is

:11:18.:11:17.

now Clive's bedroom. I look back at the sleeping rough

:11:18.:11:32.

and everything and it was a trial but it was my trial and I got

:11:33.:11:36.

through it and I am now starting to come out the other end of it and I

:11:37.:11:40.

have steps in place now. There is a future for me.

:11:41.:11:42.

Mo also rents a room - he didn't want to be identified.

:11:43.:11:44.

He's Somali and moved here from London.

:11:45.:11:46.

And ended up sleeping rough after losing his job.

:11:47.:11:54.

When I have somewhere nice to sleep, I can sort myself out. You seem

:11:55.:12:00.

happy. I feel very happy. The stay on average

:12:01.:12:02.

is four and a half months. This provides a stopgap survey can

:12:03.:12:10.

save up some money. The bread is affordable for a short period and we

:12:11.:12:13.

want them to be looking actively for the work and the idea is that they

:12:14.:12:16.

find themselves and this is just a stepping stone.

:12:17.:12:16.

So six former rough sleepers living in an old communtiy centre.

:12:17.:12:19.

When they first said it was going to be a homeless shelter, we thought we

:12:20.:12:30.

were going to have the worst. Which upset everybody. But they have

:12:31.:12:34.

proven is all wrong. They are tidy and polite. They genuinely are nice

:12:35.:12:40.

people. It is safer all round. There are people there and the building is

:12:41.:12:41.

not getting smashed up or destroyed. The charity behind the scheme wants

:12:42.:12:43.

to convert more buildings. Saying there's a growing

:12:44.:12:45.

need for more beds. Aimed at those who have simply been

:12:46.:12:47.

priced out of Bristol's private A look at the rest of the day's news

:12:48.:12:50.

here in the West and the mainline track was shut for more than an hour

:12:51.:13:03.

near Bath today, to fix a problem which has caused disruption

:13:04.:13:06.

for the last two days. A fault with the points

:13:07.:13:10.

near Oldfield Park meant staff It's led to some

:13:11.:13:12.

diversions and delays. Fewer trains were already running

:13:13.:13:16.

because of work to prepare the station for a new fleet

:13:17.:13:18.

of inter city trains. I am happy to say services this

:13:19.:13:28.

afternoon have been restored to normal after some emergency

:13:29.:13:31.

engineering work by Network Rail. Clearly, when you have a reduced

:13:32.:13:36.

service, a reduced train service then having any other faults on that

:13:37.:13:39.

line can have a knock-on effect on our passengers. But that issue has

:13:40.:13:43.

now been resolved and we had services running as normal. The

:13:44.:13:49.

ongoing work at the station is on time and said to finish on Sunday,

:13:50.:13:53.

so by Monday morning's rush hour, Bath spa should be back to hope so.

:13:54.:13:56.

A protest against a new McDonald's restaurant in Bristol was held

:13:57.:13:59.

The fast-food chain is appealing a decision

:14:00.:14:02.

by the council to refuse planning permission for a new

:14:03.:14:04.

McDonald's say it'll lead to new investment in the area

:14:05.:14:08.

Those against say it'll increase congestion and levels of obesity.

:14:09.:14:17.

Bath's Conservative MP Ben Howlett won't face any charges

:14:18.:14:19.

after an allegation of sexual assault was made

:14:20.:14:21.

Mr Howlett wasn't arrested at the time,

:14:22.:14:24.

but went to a police station voluntarily to speak to officers

:14:25.:14:27.

In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service has said no

:14:28.:14:33.

charges were brought because there wasn't

:14:34.:14:35.

Mr Howlett has always "strenuously denied any wrongdoing".

:14:36.:14:41.

Tickets sold out in just 45 minutes to hear the US

:14:42.:14:43.

Senator Bernie Sanders speak at the Festival of Ideas

:14:44.:14:45.

The politician and activist campaigned to become

:14:46.:14:51.

A group of volunteers in Somerset have been pulling on their wellies

:15:03.:15:08.

and wading into the water, in a bid to rid our rivers

:15:09.:15:11.

The American Signal Crayfish is killing off our native crayfish

:15:12.:15:18.

Sally Challoner has been to see the project on Exmoor.

:15:19.:15:26.

An army of volunteers and experts descend

:15:27.:15:29.

Their mission isn't easy - to track down, and remove

:15:30.:15:36.

or sterilise the invasive American crayfish.

:15:37.:15:40.

Nicky Green is running the project; she's in the middle of a phd to see

:15:41.:15:44.

if this method can bring some kind of balance back to the ecosystem.

:15:45.:15:50.

They've laid traps along a stretch of the river; today

:15:51.:15:54.

she and the volunteers are checking them.

:15:55.:15:59.

Quite a young one, probably no more than a year old, this one. It is a

male, you can tell by the parts which are under year. And this is a

male. are an invasive species -

introduced in the 70's as a potential diversification

:16:15.:16:17.

for farmers, but they spread, killing our native white-clawed

:16:18.:16:21.

crayfish, damaging river banks, If they are left unchecked, they

:16:22.:16:32.

will basically destroy the ecosystem. They will wipe out all of

:16:33.:16:37.

the invertebrate life, plant life, fish, all sorts of stuff. There are

:16:38.:16:43.

many examples of what courses in the south-east of England where

:16:44.:16:45.

literally the only wildlife in the river is crayfish.

:16:46.:16:47.

Part of the funding comes from the Environment Agency.

:16:48.:16:50.

They're interested to see if this method can be

We're returning the big breeding males, having sterilise them, so

not working and so you have fewer eggs hatching out the following

:17:06.:17:09.

spring, which is what we are starting check now. So far, from two

:17:10.:17:16.

years trapping, we have got about 6500 crayfish and that is on just

:17:17.:17:21.

over a kilometre of river and what we have found that the catch rates

:17:22.:17:27.

of the two years have gone down by 30%.

:17:28.:17:30.

Nicky hopes the work will continue, even

:17:31.:17:31.

If you are an American visiting our area, you are very welcome. It is

just your wildlife. Chris Packham has been cleared

when she passed away in the summer. She set up a charity named

after her toy mascot, Our Gloucestershire reporter,

Steve Knibbs, is at Cheltenham Let's join him. Hi, Steve. We will

:18:28.:18:38.

not reveal the winner of the race. We will meet him in a moment, but

:18:39.:18:41.

just to say it has been an emotional day for many people. The money

:18:42.:18:44.

raised today will be used for more research into bone cancer and also

:18:45.:18:48.

to provide specialist equine experiences for those still with

:18:49.:18:52.

cancer and it is because of Hannah's incredible vision for what you

:18:53.:18:53.

wanted her legacy to be. Hannah Francis pushed

:18:54.:18:55.

herself to the limit and despite often being in great

:18:56.:18:58.

pain through her cancer - This was at an international event

:18:59.:19:00.

in Ireland last June. But like her charity,

her driving force was thinking Cancer is evil. I wouldn't wish it

time as she was. I think she would be really proud,

:19:44.:19:50.

very excited. She came to badminton and she came to our yard as well. A

:19:51.:19:55.

very driven young lady with a very wise head on her shoulders. I think

:19:56.:20:00.

she would be very proud of what the whole team have done here.

:20:01.:20:01.

in 1981 following intensive treatment for cancer himself.

:20:02.:20:12.

People have come out in force. I think there was about 600 members of

:20:13.:20:19.

the public applied to write in the race and thankfully I did not have

:20:20.:20:22.

to choose any of them because then I could not upset anybody.

:20:23.:20:24.

the likes of Sir Mark todd, Alice Fox-Pitt and olympic medallist

:20:25.:20:28.

With over ?100,000 expected to be raised

:20:29.:20:31.

Well, we will bring you the last few seconds of the race and we will meet

:20:32.:20:43.

the winning jockey. It was a tough race. The pack stayed together for

:20:44.:20:47.

most of it and there was a member of the Qatar royal family hoping to get

:20:48.:20:50.

the lead and the win but eventually the winning jockey was then more

:20:51.:20:57.

aboard David pipes, three star general. Then it is with us now. You

:20:58.:21:01.

are a flight instructor in the army and used to work for the stables as

:21:02.:21:05.

well. This is your first win at Cheltenham, I take it. Yes, first

:21:06.:21:10.

win. Second is the best I have come before, so it is great to get the

:21:11.:21:15.

win. How does it feel to win? I know you're in it for a personal reason.

:21:16.:21:20.

My daughter Grace has leukaemia and that is the main reason that I

:21:21.:21:23.

decided to apply for the charity raise and it was more sweet that I

:21:24.:21:31.

got the winner as well. So yeah, really pleased. What advice did

:21:32.:21:37.

David give you? He said to jump off handy and see how we go, really. I

:21:38.:21:41.

knew there would be strong pace from the start. And thence we just waited

:21:42.:21:48.

a little bit and picked up nicely. You said earlier that Gracie is

:21:49.:21:53.

doing well. You have also had cancer yourself twice in the past and will

:21:54.:21:57.

know how important it charity like Hannah's is. Yes, it is definitely

:21:58.:22:03.

close to my heart in that I have also had sarcoma in my thigh which

:22:04.:22:07.

we occurred and it has been fabulous to be part of this day and have

:22:08.:22:12.

raised so much money for the charities. Congratulations. Enjoy

:22:13.:22:17.

the rest of the day. As celebrations later. That is Ben Moore, the winner

:22:18.:22:22.

of this race and we think that the charities should benefit well over

:22:23.:22:28.

?100,000. Fantastic effort. That is fantastic. What moving stories from

:22:29.:22:32.

everyone. Cancer is such a terrible thing. And wasn't Hannah a beautiful

:22:33.:22:38.

person? Yes. We had better move on. Ian is upstairs with the weather.

:22:39.:22:39.

Ian. Hello. We will take you through the

:22:40.:22:48.

forecast for tomorrow. We continue the run of effectively dry weather.

:22:49.:22:53.

Much like today, once we have lost the weak front with the rain

:22:54.:22:56.

associated, there will be some showers but a good deal of dry

:22:57.:22:59.

weather and tomorrow brings a broadly similar sort of day in many

:23:00.:23:03.

respects. A fair amount of cloud with some pockets of bright weather

:23:04.:23:07.

during the afternoon. We are injecting a warmer air mass across

:23:08.:23:11.

as as we run through into tomorrow, so inherently it will be a warm day

:23:12.:23:16.

and if the sun does break through and I am sure it will for some of

:23:17.:23:20.

you to the afternoon, it will do pleasant in those conditions, not

:23:21.:23:23.

least as the wind will be liked. Through the rest of this evening, we

:23:24.:23:27.

have had some of these lingering showers running southwards. They

:23:28.:23:32.

will fade away. Then dry during the night. The risk of frost tonight

:23:33.:23:38.

will be reduced. In the south of our viewing area, you may have clear in

:23:39.:23:42.

our skies for it to get relatively cheaply, even here it is minimal

:23:43.:23:46.

risk of frost. For the vast majority, temperatures will settle

:23:47.:23:51.

into 6-9dC as we had through towards daybreak tomorrow. For the most

:23:52.:23:54.

part, there will be cloud around to get things under way tomorrow. As

:23:55.:23:58.

the day wears on, some of that will show signs of becoming more fragile

:23:59.:24:09.

with breaks appearing. Maybe the odd light shower particularly towards

:24:10.:24:11.

the south, but they will be the exception. Most areas dry. The light

:24:12.:24:15.

winds will enhance the mild feel. Even under the cloud, we should get

:24:16.:24:22.

14-15dC. If the sun breaks through, that will be lifted to possibly even

:24:23.:24:28.

17 Celsius. As we continue on into the weekend, it is looking broadly

:24:29.:24:32.

dry through both days. On Saturday, we have that weak cold front running

:24:33.:24:38.

southwards. Colder air behind that. It will be a cooler day on Saturday,

:24:39.:24:45.

but not a market cold one. But if I take you fast forward through the

:24:46.:25:00.

rest of this week, I would not take too literally the cloud amounts.

:25:01.:25:03.

There will be brighter spells. The critical thing is into the start of

:25:04.:25:06.

next week, there will be a much more profoundly cold plunge of error from

:25:07.:25:09.

the Arctic taking shape through Monday. By Tuesday, we will have

:25:10.:25:13.

some showers. That'll the first rain we have seen in some time. Thank

:25:14.:25:18.

you. That sounds really harsh. The overnight temperatures really are

:25:19.:25:21.

cold, especially for fruit growers. It is a bit of a worry. Yes, always

:25:22.:25:28.

a concern for fruit growers. I will see you on the telly later. Bye for

:25:29.:25:29.

now.

:25:30.:25:37.
