That's all from the BBC News at Six.

Welcome to BBC Points West

with Alex Lovell and David Garmston.

0:00:050:00:07

Our main story tonight -

the 96-year-old

0:00:070:00:09

attacked on his own doorstep.

0:00:090:00:11

Jim Booth was the victim

of a distraction burglar

0:00:110:00:14

who used a hammer

when he was challenged.

0:00:140:00:22

And he was bleeding

all over his face.

0:00:220:00:24

We brought him in and

sat him in the chair.

0:00:240:00:26

Sat him in here, he'd been

knocked on the head

0:00:260:00:28

with a hammer.

0:00:280:00:30

It's emerged that Mr Booth

is a war hero

0:00:300:00:32

who's danced

with the Duchess of Cornwall.

0:00:320:00:34

We'll have the latest

in the police hunt.

0:00:340:00:38

Our other headlines tonight -

a row over nuclear waste.

0:00:480:00:50

Plans to store double the amount

at Hinkley within concrete blocks.

0:00:500:01:00

A watchful Christmas -

0:01:010:01:03

how seasonal markets are being

guarded to prevent terror attacks.

0:01:030:01:09

And happy birthday to PC Jayden -

the police give a little boy

0:01:090:01:13

waiting for a heart

transplant a special present.

0:01:130:01:19

Good evening.

0:01:230:01:25

A 96-year-old former naval

officer has been attacked

0:01:250:01:27

with what's thought to be a claw

hammer by a burglar

0:01:270:01:30

at his home in Taunton.

0:01:300:01:32

Tonight, he's in hospital

with serious injuries.

0:01:320:01:36

Our reporter Lee Madan

is in Taunton now.

0:01:360:01:41

And when Tom opened the door,

Jim said, "I've been attacked".

0:01:410:01:45

And that was where it

started, wasn't it, Tom?

0:01:450:01:48

And he was bleeding

all over his face.

0:01:480:01:51

We brought him in and

sat him in the chair.

0:01:510:01:54

Sat him in here, he'd been

knocked on the head

0:01:540:01:56

with a hammer.

0:01:560:01:59

And he came in here for us to phone

for the ambulance and the police.

0:01:590:02:04

Police say a man knocked at Jim's

door yesterday afternoon,

0:02:040:02:06

between 4:00 and 5:00.

0:02:060:02:09

He asked if he wanted any

work done to the house.

0:02:090:02:11

When Mr Booth refused,

the man attacked him with what is

0:02:110:02:14

thought to have been a claw hammer.

0:02:140:02:17

I saw Jim's son this morning,

because he came here last night to

0:02:170:02:22

go to the hospital with him,

and he said he has got a fractured

0:02:220:02:25

skull, and he was with the doctor

for a fair while.

0:02:250:02:32

And he had a problem

with his hand,

0:02:320:02:34

a big bash on his hand.

0:02:340:02:37

Mr Booth is one of the last

surviving heroes of World War II,

0:02:370:02:40

serving as a Lieutenant Commander

in the Navy,

0:02:400:02:43

and played a crucial

role in the D-Day landings.

0:02:430:02:46

His latest battle has

seen him take on the man

0:02:460:02:49

police are still trying to find.

0:02:490:02:51

One male, around 30

to 35 years of age,

0:02:510:02:55

clean-shaven, dark-ish hair,

described athletic, stocky build.

0:02:550:03:05

No real accent was noted,

no height was given.

0:03:050:03:08

He was wearing jeans

and dark clothing.

0:03:080:03:10

Mr Booth has been well

known to the BBC.

0:03:100:03:13

He featured on Points West

two years ago, when he

0:03:130:03:16

danced with the Duchess of Cornwall,

saying he was delighted to have

0:03:160:03:19

stolen a dance with her.

0:03:190:03:22

Tonight, forensic teams

are still working at

0:03:220:03:23

Mr Booth's house, looking

for clues about his attacker.

0:03:230:03:33

Police have put an extra patrols all

day today and are keen to reassure

0:03:380:03:43

the public that incidents like this

are very rare. Police want to hear

0:03:430:03:48

from anyone who witnessed anything

yesterday are have been contacted by

0:03:480:03:53

somebody knocking at their door

asking if they wanted work done.

0:03:530:03:58

People are advised call 101 or

Crimestoppers..

0:03:580:04:12

The jury in the trial of an army

sergeant from Wiltshire,

0:04:120:04:14

accused of attempting

to kill his wife, has been dismissed

0:04:140:04:17

after failing to reach verdicts.

0:04:170:04:18

Victoria Cilliers survived a 4,000

foot fall when her main

0:04:180:04:20

and reserve parachutes failed

in a jump at the

0:04:200:04:23

Army Parachute Association

at Netheravon.

0:04:230:04:24

Emile Cilliers has always denied two

charges of attempted murder

0:04:240:04:26

and a third of damaging

a gas fitting.

0:04:260:04:28

The Crown Prosecution Service has

said it will seek a retrial.

0:04:280:04:38

Plans by the energy company EDF

to change the way it handles

0:04:400:04:43

high level radioactive waste

at Hinkley Point in Somerset

0:04:430:04:45

is causing anger locally.

0:04:450:04:46

The company wants to double the size

of a proposed waste store

0:04:460:04:49

on the Hinkley C site,

and make other changes, too.

0:04:490:04:52

Clinton Rogers has been

assessing local reaction.

0:04:520:04:53

It's the idea that it is our

grandchildren's grandchildren

0:04:530:04:56

that will pick up the pieces.

0:04:560:05:00

They said it will be months

with X-amount of nuclear waste

0:05:000:05:03

that will never go away.

0:05:030:05:05

And it's the high-grade waste.

0:05:050:05:07

Among those who live

in the shadow of Hinkley Point

0:05:070:05:09

there is a mixture of fear and fury.

0:05:090:05:13

My concerns are about the long-term

effects of having a lump of concrete

0:05:130:05:16

on the edge of an area of

outstanding natural beauty that is

0:05:160:05:19

going to be there essentially

forever because they haven't

0:05:190:05:22

sorted out what they're

going to do

0:05:220:05:24

with the very nasty stuff inside it.

0:05:240:05:31

EDF has always said that all high

level radioactive waste

0:05:310:05:34

produced by Hinkley C,

including spent fuel rods,

0:05:340:05:35

will need to be stored on site.

0:05:350:05:45

Right now, there is nowhere

else for it to go.

0:05:450:05:48

But now EDF has applied to double

the size of its waste store,

0:05:480:05:51

and they also want to change

the method for handling

0:05:510:05:53

high-level radioactive waste,

0:05:530:05:55

choosing now a system where

it is encased in concrete blocks.

0:05:550:05:58

In a statement, EDF has told us

that it is a safe and robust system

0:05:580:06:02

used across Europe and the USA.

0:06:020:06:04

But opponents say switching

from a method where the high-level

0:06:040:06:07

waste is held in water to what's

known as a dry system has dangers.

0:06:070:06:13

The problem with dry

storage is that it relies

0:06:130:06:15

on the integrity of a concrete

block, that a concrete block

0:06:150:06:17

containing waste material

will last forever.

0:06:170:06:21

The leader of West Somerset Council

says he's more concerned

0:06:210:06:23

by the plans to increase the size

of the storage building.

0:06:230:06:27

It will be the last

building left on site.

0:06:270:06:30

When the decommissioning takes

place, which is going to be a long

0:06:300:06:33

time from now, the reactors will go,

but that building will be left there

0:06:330:06:38

when the rest of the site

has been flattened.

0:06:380:06:42

EDF says there is no plan

to increase the amount of waste

0:06:420:06:45

stored here, merely

to change the system.

0:06:450:06:48

Well, it's the Environment

Department which will make

0:06:480:06:50

the final decision,

but that won't be

0:06:500:06:52

for some while yet.

0:06:520:07:01

You're watching Thursday's Points

West here on BBC One.

0:07:010:07:06

Still to come tonight -

0:07:060:07:08

they were meant to ease

pressure on the NHS,

0:07:080:07:10

but have online GP consultations

been a success?

0:07:100:07:15

And the little boy waiting

for a heart transplant who's been

0:07:150:07:20

given a very special birthday

treat by the police.

0:07:200:07:24

Five people have been

arrested in an armed

0:07:280:07:30

police operation in Swindon.

0:07:300:07:32

It happened in Devizes

Road in Old Town.

0:07:320:07:34

Five people were arrested

and are currently in custody

0:07:340:07:37

at Gablecross Station.

0:07:370:07:40

Wiltshire Police say

they are still investigating.

0:07:400:07:44

Extra security measures

are in place for this year's

0:07:440:07:46

Bath Christmas Market,

which has started today.

0:07:460:07:50

Large concrete bollards have been

positioned around the main

0:07:500:07:53

pedestrian areas for public safety.

0:07:530:08:00

It's in line with other cities

who've stepped up their security,

0:08:000:08:03

as the UK terror threat

remains at severe.

0:08:030:08:05

Imogen Sellers is in Bath now.

0:08:050:08:07

Imogen.

0:08:070:08:15

Having said all that, it couldn't

feel more festive for the opening

0:08:150:08:19

night of the Bath Christmas murky.

Now in its 17th year, it is a good

0:08:190:08:23

and ever, but without -- market.

0:08:230:08:34

But without wanting to be

bah humbug about it,

0:08:340:08:36

events like this present

major security challenges.

0:08:360:08:38

And this year, more than ever,

safety is a top priority.

0:08:380:08:40

A sign of the times we're living in.

0:08:400:08:42

Concrete bollards forming a barrier

around the Bath Christmas Market.

0:08:420:08:44

After the attack on a festive market

in Germany last year,

0:08:440:08:47

security has

become even more crucial.

0:08:470:08:49

Police stress there

is no specific threat,

0:08:490:08:51

but organisers are not

cutting corners.

0:08:510:08:53

Hundreds of CCTV

cameras are in place.

0:08:530:08:56

The advice to visitors -

be vigilant, but have fun.

0:08:560:08:59

There is no known risk, so it is not

done for any other reason.

0:08:590:09:03

We want people to come

to Bath and feel safe,

0:09:030:09:11

and we know that we have done

everything we can to protect people

0:09:110:09:14

so they can relax and have a nice

time while they're here.

0:09:140:09:17

With over 200 stalls,

it would be hard not to

0:09:170:09:19

eat, drink, and be merry,

and, of course, shop!

0:09:190:09:21

This year, the market has extended

out to three more streets,

0:09:210:09:24

in the hope of creating a bit more

space for the thousands of shoppers

0:09:240:09:27

that come every day.

0:09:270:09:31

And this year, 80% of

the stallholders are from

0:09:310:09:34

Bath and the South West.

0:09:340:09:35

The last Christmas

market was one of the

0:09:350:09:37

best markets from

that point of view.

0:09:370:09:39

When I was thinking about trading

here, I came and had a look

0:09:390:09:42

last year, and there

were lots of local artisans.

0:09:420:09:45

So not stuff that's

imported from overseas.

0:09:450:09:49

Previous years, local

shopkeepers have

0:09:490:09:50

complained that the market has

affected their trade.

0:09:500:09:53

The Bath Chamber of

Commerce disagrees.

0:09:530:09:56

It says the whole city

benefits to the tune of

0:09:560:09:58

nearly £20 million.

0:09:580:10:01

Even yesterday evening,

before the market

0:10:010:10:03

officially opened, it was busy.

0:10:030:10:04

We had a bustling

town centre, so I see

0:10:040:10:07

all these extra people

coming into our city,

0:10:070:10:09

wanting to spend money in Bath.

0:10:090:10:12

And if the thought of

trying to park in Bath

0:10:120:10:14

fills you with dread,

Great Western have laid on

0:10:140:10:17

an extra 24 trains into

the city for this weekend.

0:10:170:10:25

I'm joined now by

the Chief Executive

0:10:250:10:27

of Visit Bath, David James.

0:10:270:10:29

David, it feels so Christmassy,

but you've had to take security

0:10:290:10:32

extremely seriously this year.

0:10:320:10:37

It is always a top priority and we

have had to take extra measures this

0:10:370:10:40

year because of the situation. But

our number one priority is safety,

0:10:400:10:45

we hope everyone will have a great

experience here.

0:10:450:10:48

You've extended the market, too?

0:10:480:10:53

We have 60 extra stalls, spread out

around the city, so you will see a

0:10:530:10:57

difference this year. We are very

excited about this change. The grand

0:10:570:11:03

opening was about five minutes ago,

so it is now officially opened.

0:11:030:11:08

Great atmosphere for a magical

Christmas.

0:11:080:11:10

Well, the market is now officially

open,

0:11:100:11:12

and this year it goes

on until December 10th.

0:11:120:11:14

I'm off to do a bit of shopping.

0:11:140:11:22

The University of Bristol has

revealed plans for its new

0:11:220:11:24

£300 million campus.

0:11:250:11:28

It says they wants to transform

the seven-acre site by Temple Meads

0:11:280:11:31

to create education and research

facilities and accommodation

0:11:310:11:34

for 1,500 students.

It will also be a car-free zone,

0:11:340:11:39

with the aim of being

carbon neutral by 2030.

0:11:390:11:44

The Vice Chancellor

of Bath University has narrowly won

0:11:440:11:47

a motion of no confidence.

0:11:470:11:49

Dame Glynis Breakwell faced

criticism over her salary

0:11:490:11:53

of £468,000.

0:11:530:11:56

350 staff called her

for resignation, but in

0:11:560:12:02

a meeting of the university senate,

she beat a vote of

0:12:020:12:04

no confidence by 19 votes to 16,

with 2 abstentions.

0:12:040:12:09

Now to something that affects

practically all of us -

0:12:090:12:11

getting to see your GP.

0:12:110:12:14

There's a national shortage of them,

and the average waiting time to

0:12:140:12:17

get an appointment is now 13 days.

0:12:170:12:21

Online and video consultations

were introduced to try to help,

0:12:210:12:24

but they haven't been "the silver

bullet" they were hoped to be,

0:12:240:12:27

according to a new report

from Bristol University.

0:12:270:12:31

Sally Challoner reports.

0:12:310:12:34

They're on the front line when it

comes to keeping us all healthy.

0:12:340:12:37

But getting to see your

doctor can take days.

0:12:370:12:41

There's a shortage of GPs,

0:12:410:12:43

1,000 lost in the last

two years alone.

0:12:430:12:46

The government is trying

to recruit, including from abroad,

0:12:460:12:49

but something else needs to be done,

like video consulting.

0:12:490:12:57

Obviously things like acute chest

pain and life-threatening

0:12:570:12:59

illnesses of that sort, bleeding

or the spirit through stress,

0:12:590:13:02

they need urgent 999 calls,

but for things

0:13:020:13:07

that are not pressing and urgent,

it is a very good addition to the

0:13:070:13:10

normal way of seeing your GP.

0:13:100:13:14

This surgery in South

Gloucestershire was one

0:13:140:13:18

of 36 trialling an e-consultation

system in the west.

0:13:180:13:20

They've since changed the system,

and the way they use it,

0:13:200:13:22

and take-up is now better.

0:13:230:13:24

But does it save time?

0:13:240:13:34

It probably adds time. By the GP's

availability, it means that people

0:13:350:13:42

will probably consult for a less

urgent things. We have become a

0:13:420:13:45

source of advice that could be found

on the web.

0:13:450:13:48

The doctors' union, the BMA,

agrees it's just another

0:13:480:13:50

route to overworked GPs,

and a face to face consultation

0:13:500:13:53

will pick up signals and clues that

could be missed online.

0:13:530:13:56

But what do patients think?

0:13:560:14:04

I think it is fine but I personally

prefer seeing my doctor in person.

I

0:14:040:14:09

went to my GP today, you have to

ring on the morning at a specific

0:14:090:14:12

time and that was not an appointment

when you want it. You can tell

0:14:120:14:15

people waste time, going there,

sorting out the appointment, so I

0:14:150:14:20

think it is a good idea.

0:14:200:14:21

We bank online, shop online,

book our holidays online,

0:14:210:14:23

so it's a natural progression.

0:14:230:14:24

But, according to this report,

0:14:240:14:26

we shouldn't ditch

the good doctor just yet.

0:14:260:14:31

Well, Dr Jeremy Horwood

from the University of Bristol

0:14:310:14:34

was involved in that study.

0:14:340:14:37

Earlier, I asked him

what their research revealed.

0:14:370:14:47

We evaluate an online consultation

system where patients can write a

0:14:500:14:53

four month and send it to their GPs.

We felt that usage was quite low

0:14:530:14:56

during the file. But these things

take time, it took us a while to get

0:14:560:15:04

used to online banking and shopping.

40% of those were also a

0:15:040:15:09

face-to-face consultation, so it is

maybe people getting the workload

0:15:090:15:11

for GPs.

So are you say no to that

system and other online

0:15:110:15:17

consultations?

No, I think are some

things when you have a simple

0:15:170:15:22

request, to struggle with quite

good, but other times, GPs need to

0:15:220:15:26

see you, so it is not replacing the

face-to-face.

In this country, we

0:15:260:15:31

have also vital bits for diseases

like cancer, because people do not

0:15:310:15:34

go to the GPs hourly enough. We do

not want to discourage the

0:15:340:15:40

face-to-face.

This could be

something that increases patient

0:15:400:15:46

access. But it should not replace

the face-to-face. The problem is

0:15:460:15:51

that while it improves patient

access, it could be duplicating the

0:15:510:15:55

workload of GPs and putting more

pressure on GPs that are very scarce

0:15:550:15:59

at the moment anyway.

Is there a

danger that with increasing

0:15:590:16:06

pressure, that everybody might be

fobbed off with an online

0:16:060:16:10

consultation with the really need to

be in that surgery?

Yes, lots of

0:16:100:16:14

surgeries are basically doing

telephone consultation first, they

0:16:140:16:19

are trying to think of different

ways for people who do not have to

0:16:190:16:25

go to a GP. Some things can be done

over the phone or online, but some

0:16:250:16:30

things need to be face-to-face.

But

with limited resources, should we

0:16:300:16:36

just be aiming for face-to-face

consultations and funding the GP

0:16:360:16:40

service as against would still be?

That would be great, but there was

0:16:400:16:44

nothing in the Budget about extra

funding for private care.

0:16:440:16:50

Interesting to talk to, thank you.

0:16:500:16:55

A new way to help people

with hearing problems to communicate

0:16:550:16:58

with staff when they have to go

to hospital in Gloucestershire

0:16:580:17:00

has been devised.

0:17:000:17:01

It's been developed

with the county's Deaf Association,

0:17:010:17:03

and is proving so popular, it's

being rolled out across the country.

0:17:030:17:10

Andy Howard has been

to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

0:17:100:17:12

to see how it works.

0:17:120:17:19

Hospitals.

0:17:190:17:20

They can be dramatic,

emotional,

0:17:200:17:23

and even confusing

places for anyone.

0:17:230:17:25

But what's it like

if you can't hear?

0:17:250:17:32

You might not even know your

name has been called.

0:17:320:17:35

And when you see a doctor,

it can get worse,

0:17:350:17:37

like when Kim had

a problem with her neck.

0:17:370:17:46

INTERPRETER:

And they put a brace

on, which was really tight,

0:17:460:17:48

and I tried to explain that

I couldn't breathe.

0:17:480:17:50

It was actually quite

frightening, had to

0:17:500:17:52

take my hearing aids and my glasses

off, and I was getting quite

0:17:520:17:55

anxious.

0:17:550:18:01

This went on for a considerable

time, and I was quite

0:18:010:18:03

tearful, because there

wasn't any communication.

0:18:030:18:05

I was told a story of a deaf patient

who died in a UK hospital,

0:18:050:18:08

because they couldn't communicate.

0:18:080:18:09

And that's where this card comes in.

0:18:090:18:11

It has all the information

the hospital needs,

0:18:110:18:13

and means an interpreter can

be called to help.

0:18:130:18:23

It provides credible evidence of the

need for communication support. We

0:18:290:18:34

put this information on Facebook

locally, and within 24 hours, we had

0:18:340:18:38

had 10,000 responses.

0:18:380:18:41

The idea came

from the NHS in Gloucestershire,

0:18:410:18:43

and the whiteboard of Carol McIndoe.

0:18:430:18:44

It's now hoped the card will be

adopted across the country.

0:18:440:18:49

Absolutely blown away

by the reaction.

0:18:490:18:53

There were responses

from all over the UK,

0:18:530:18:59

saying, "we want these cards here".

0:18:590:19:06

Because our deaf community

experiences exactly the same

0:19:060:19:10

problems as yours worth. -- were.

0:19:100:19:16

It's the little card

which is already

0:19:160:19:17

making a huge difference,

and it started in Gloucestershire.

0:19:170:19:26

Sounds like a good idea.

0:19:260:19:28

The Gloucestershire paralympic world

champion, Andy Lewis,

0:19:280:19:29

was honoured with a doctorate

by the

0:19:290:19:31

University of

Gloucestershire today.

0:19:310:19:32

Andy, who's from Lydney,

became the first ever paralympic

0:19:320:19:34

triathlete to win gold

at Rio last year.

0:19:340:19:36

He received an MBE earlier

this year, and today

0:19:360:19:38

was awarded a doctorate

of philosophy for his achievements.

0:19:380:19:41

Since winning gold, he's now given

up his job at Airbus

0:19:410:19:44

to concentrate on being

a full-time athlete,

0:19:440:19:47

with a focus on defending his title

at the Tokyo games in 2020.

0:19:470:19:57

Going back all those years, when I

first touched base with the

0:19:590:20:02

University of Gloucestershire to

help me on my sporting journey, to

0:20:020:20:04

be brought back your years later for

a doctorate is just fantastic.

0:20:040:20:10

Everyone who has just done their

degrees and doctorates now, all the

0:20:100:20:13

effort they put into it, I know what

that takes in any sense, because I

0:20:130:20:18

have had to do the same thing to get

to Rio, but the way that they have

0:20:180:20:22

done it is fantastic and to be

invited here is an honour.

0:20:220:20:25

Also honoured today

was Dame Janet Trotter,

0:20:250:20:27

the Lord Lieutenant

of Gloucestershire, who became

0:20:270:20:29

the University's first

vice-chancellor when it was founded

0:20:290:20:31

in 2001.

0:20:310:20:35

The BBC has a new home in Somerset.

0:20:350:20:39

Staff at BBC Somerset moved

into offices on the edge

0:20:390:20:42

of Taunton this afternoon.

0:20:420:20:45

As the station approaches its 30th

birthday, the move marks

0:20:450:20:47

a significant commitment by the BBC

to the future of

0:20:470:20:50

broadcasting in the county.

0:20:500:20:53

Charlie Taylor had the honour

of being the first voice heard

0:20:530:20:56

from the new studios.

0:20:560:21:03

With the BBC Somerset News at two

o'clock, I'm Charlie Taylor.

0:21:030:21:09

And if you want to tune in,

remember the frequency is 95.5 FM.

0:21:090:21:16

Very smart building. They will be

pleased with that.

0:21:160:21:19

Now, what a day it's been for one

little boy from Somerset.

0:21:190:21:21

His name is Jayden,

and he's five today.

0:21:210:21:23

Jayden's been very poorly,

0:21:230:21:25

and desperately needs

a heart transplant.

0:21:250:21:27

His family are determined to make

every day count for him.

0:21:270:21:30

And today, a team from

Avon And Somerset Police

0:21:300:21:33

stepped in to help them take that

to a whole new level.

0:21:330:21:38

Here's Amanda Parr.

0:21:380:21:41

Birthday presents everywhere,

but they're quickly forgotten

0:21:410:21:43

when Jayden hears a siren.

0:21:430:21:53

He knew they were coming.

0:21:530:21:54

He's been counting down

the sleeps all week.

0:21:540:21:56

And, sure enough, first

thing this morning,

0:21:560:21:58

and with maximum drama,

two officers arrived

0:21:580:22:01

in Midsomer Norton to pick

up their latest recruit.

0:22:010:22:06

Pretty soon, they were off

to catch a criminal.

0:22:060:22:10

It's not real life,

but it feels like it.

0:22:100:22:13

Everyone here is off shift,

and happily giving their own time

0:22:130:22:15

to make one little

boy's wish come true.

0:22:150:22:23

Absolutely amazing. I don't think

they realise. I thought my family

0:22:240:22:27

was at breaking point, and I wasn't

looking forward to what tomorrow

0:22:270:22:31

brings at all. But he has made us

smile this week, there are days we

0:22:310:22:36

don't smile.

He will fight this, he

is a fighter. He will get the call,

0:22:360:22:45

he will get his new ticker as he

calls it, but that is what keeps us

0:22:450:22:50

going as a family.

His grandmother

told me that he had this dream of

0:22:500:22:56

being a police officer, and it

resonated with me, because I had a

0:22:560:23:00

similar dream when I was a young

boy. And that is all I wanted to do,

0:23:000:23:04

and I been doing it for nearly

years. And I am lucky enough that I

0:23:040:23:09

was able to fulfil and live my

dream, and I thought, let's make

0:23:090:23:13

that happen for this boy, even if it

is just for one day.

Policeman to a

0:23:130:23:21

five-year-old boy is driving fast,

dogs, horses, so it is all the

0:23:210:23:26

excitement of what you see on the

TV.

0:23:260:23:27

He must have done well -

PC Jayden was promoted at lunchtime.

0:23:270:23:30

Quite a step up to Chief Constable,

and the hat may need

0:23:300:23:33

a slight adjustment.

0:23:330:23:34

But he takes it all in his stride.

0:23:340:23:36

He and his family are good at that.

0:23:360:23:39

They will cherish today's

memories forever.

0:23:390:23:49

Avon And Somerset Police, that was

phenomenal. The boys and girls in

0:23:550:23:58

blue have done us all proud. We hope

Jayden gets home soon and kicks down

0:23:580:24:06

the door at home. The fair that he

has, it has these hot. -- bear.

0:24:060:24:21

Time now to take a look

at the weather forecast.

0:24:210:24:23

Ian's up on the roof.

0:24:230:24:25

The wind has died down for tonight.

Those of you to the south of

0:24:280:24:35

Bristol, parts of North Somerset, we

have had some showery rain which has

0:24:350:24:42

affected those areas for quite some

time. The rainfall radar sequence

0:24:420:24:46

shows that that remains in place,

but down towards the south-west, we

0:24:460:24:53

have the frontal zone developing,

delivering some rain which will rush

0:24:530:24:58

along southern coastal counties

during the course of tonight. And

0:24:580:25:02

for our region, it is uncertain. For

Dorset and parts of culture, we will

0:25:020:25:07

catch some of that. -- Wiltshire.

You can see the area of rain

0:25:070:25:16

departing out in to south-eastern

parts of England overnight. Barring

0:25:160:25:22

a few showers in the morning for

some of you, a brighter prospect,

0:25:220:25:26

but the door is getting opened now

too much colder air coming in from

0:25:260:25:29

the north. There is the scene in the

early hours of Saturday morning,

0:25:290:25:33

setting us up for a colder weekend.

For the time being, temperatures

0:25:330:25:39

around seven or eight Celsius across

the region. Showers will continue

0:25:390:25:42

for a while across the northern

areas. And by tomorrow morning, a

0:25:420:25:47

few showers out towards the west.

Many areas starting dry tomorrow.

0:25:470:25:52

Risk of frost will be higher for the

north, parts of Gloucestershire, but

0:25:520:25:57

elsewhere still a chilly night. And

then tomorrow, some of the early

0:25:570:26:03

showers tend to fade away. For many

of you, some dry and bright weather

0:26:030:26:09

as the day moves by. The winds are

lighter than we have been seeing

0:26:090:26:12

over the last couple of days. By the

time we are into the evening,

0:26:120:26:17

showers will return to some areas

from the north-east. Temperatures

0:26:170:26:22

tomorrow, as you can see, a chilly

day, but at least the winds will be

0:26:220:26:26

light enough not to add any

significant wind-chill. Different

0:26:260:26:30

story at the weekend, breezy days.

In many respects, Saturday will be

0:26:300:26:36

glorious in terms of the amount of

sunshine. Risk of showers out

0:26:360:26:39

towards the west of Somerset, and

possibly a bit of snow as well.

0:26:390:26:46

Might even turn wintry at lower

levels. But the general theme,

0:26:460:26:50

barring Monday which is milder,

colder weather through the rest of

0:26:500:26:54

this month into early December.

0:26:540:27:01

I judge the weather based on what he

is wearing. Today the brown polo

0:27:050:27:12

neck came out.

0:27:120:27:12

That's all from us for now.

0:27:120:27:14

We'll be back with the late bulletin

after the 10:00 news.

0:27:140:27:16

Have a good evening.

0:27:160:27:17

Bye-bye.
