Welcome to Points West - our headlines this lunchtime.

A mother calls for a fresh investigation into her son's death.

:00:14.:00:15.

Tracey Clayton is convinced someone took Josh's life

:00:16.:00:17.

New claims of child abuse in the 80s against former football coach

:00:18.:00:21.

And two older romantics who'd fallen for each other,

:00:22.:00:26.

finally make it official and get hitched.

:00:27.:00:38.

A woman from Somerset calling for a fresh investigation

:00:39.:00:45.

into the death of her son on the Isles of Scilly has met

:00:46.:00:48.

a senior police officer in a private meeting.

:00:49.:00:50.

Tracey Clayton is convinced someone else was responsible for the death

:00:51.:00:53.

of her son Josh on Tresco 16 months ago.

:00:54.:00:55.

Last week a coroner ordered Devon and Cornwall Police to investigate

:00:56.:00:57.

Mrs Clayton has been speaking exclusively to Clinton Rogers.

:00:58.:01:10.

Before I take my last breath, we will know what happened to my boy

:01:11.:01:16.

without a shadow of the diet. We will find out and we will get

:01:17.:01:19.

justice for Josh. When police on the Isles of Scilly

:01:20.:01:22.

found the body of Josh Clayton 16 months ago, they put it down

:01:23.:01:24.

to accidental death. The 23-year-old bar manager

:01:25.:01:26.

vanished after attending His body was discovered

ten days later. Last week an inquest

into his death was dramatically This man, Leroy Thomas, told

the hearing that he'd witnessed Josh arguing with a group of men

after leaving the party. The coroner said the police

:01:43.:01:44.

needed to reinvestigate. Which has given some hope

:01:45.:01:50.

to Josh Clayton's family who remain convinced someone else

:01:51.:01:52.

was responsible for his death. I've had a meeting with Devon and

:01:53.:02:06.

Cornwall police, a senior officer who has assured me he will be

:02:07.:02:14.

reviewing and hopefully look for any gaps that happened throughout the

:02:15.:02:20.

investigation. It definitely wasn't an accident, definitely. I thought

:02:21.:02:23.

it from day one and still believe it now.

:02:24.:02:30.

It's not clear how long those enquiries will take or, of course,

:02:31.:02:33.

what they will uncover, given the amount of time

:02:34.:02:36.

His mother, who until now has said she wanted

:02:37.:02:41.

a new force to investigate, says she will give Devon

:02:42.:02:44.

and Cornwall a week to convince her they are serious about uncovering

:02:45.:02:47.

Fresh allegations of child abuse during the 1980s against a former

:02:48.:03:01.

football coach have been uncovered by the BBC.

:03:02.:03:03.

On tonight's BBC Inside Out West, our own

:03:04.:03:05.

Geoff Twentyman investigates claims made by three former football

:03:06.:03:07.

players from Bristol against Bob Higgins,

:03:08.:03:08.

who ran the Bob Higgins Soccer Academy.

:03:09.:03:12.

A branch of the academy operated on the site

:03:13.:03:15.

of what is now Bath Spa University at Newton St Loe.

:03:16.:03:23.

One-day driving along, put my head down in his laugh and for an hour

:03:24.:03:33.

and a half, drove with my head in his lap. It sounds gross but I can

:03:34.:03:39.

still smell your in through his trousers. It is a graphic thing to

:03:40.:03:43.

say but it is just disgusting. The BBC approached Bob Higgins

:03:44.:03:46.

for comment but he hasn't responded. In the past he has always denied any

:03:47.:03:49.

allegations of wrong-doing. There more on this at 6.30

:03:50.:03:52.

on Points West and the full story is on tonight's Inside Out West

:03:53.:03:55.

at 7.30 on BBC1. Prince Harry's in Wiltshire today

:03:56.:04:01.

to see how former members of the Armed Forces are being helped

:04:02.:04:03.

with their mental health. He's at the Help For Heroes

:04:04.:04:06.

Recovery Centre in Tidworth, which supports ex-service personnel

:04:07.:04:09.

and their families who are living Here's our Wiltshire

:04:10.:04:11.

Reporter Will Glennon. Prince Harry is no stranger, the

:04:12.:04:30.

home for Help For Heroes in Wiltshire. He opened the centre with

:04:31.:04:34.

his brother, Prince William and returned a year or so later with his

:04:35.:04:40.

involvement in the Invictus games. The games for the wounded soldiers.

:04:41.:04:47.

He is coming here today to be shown the mental programmes, the service

:04:48.:04:52.

they provide. With me is a former soldier and his wife. He has done a

:04:53.:04:57.

large mambo -- number of tours with the Army with the Royal Marines.

:04:58.:05:03.

Alan White. Thanks for joining us. You have seen a great deal of action

:05:04.:05:08.

through your career but now you having to deal with the effects,

:05:09.:05:14.

aren't you? I have post-traumatic stress disorder as well as lots of

:05:15.:05:19.

physical injuries. Trying to battle through is quite hard sometimes. How

:05:20.:05:25.

does the centre here help you? Quite a lot over the past few years both

:05:26.:05:33.

with courses and social help. It has been a tent -- centre that I can dip

:05:34.:05:38.

in and out with to get help and general direction. Tony Sewell,

:05:39.:05:43.

sometimes the family members are often forgotten about that you have

:05:44.:05:48.

to deal with it also. We have children and we saw Alan struggle

:05:49.:05:53.

and saw him go downhill and face things he did want to see. It is

:05:54.:05:58.

nice to come here and feel part of another family. Thanks very much.

:05:59.:06:04.

Prince Harry will be arriving here later and will be shown the

:06:05.:06:07.

programmes they have feared the mental health. He will meet some of

:06:08.:06:10.

the real difference the programmes the real difference the programmes

:06:11.:06:12.

do make to people's lives. It was a wedding with a difference

:06:13.:06:17.

for a Gloucestershire couple Marlene Robinson-Franklin

:06:18.:06:19.

and Ronnie Franklin are 79 and 85 They met in the village of Uley

:06:20.:06:26.

and married in a special Marlene and Ronnie believe

:06:27.:06:31.

they're meant to be. Ronnie was married to his first

:06:32.:06:49.

wife, Barbara for almost 60 years. She told him before she died

:06:50.:06:53.

he should find love again. She said to me, "You must

:06:54.:06:58.

find someone else. She said, "I want

:06:59.:07:00.

you to do it for me." Marlene also lost her husband,

:07:01.:07:07.

Austin, three years ago. They'd been married

:07:08.:07:13.

since she was 17. What I'm getting from my

:07:14.:07:17.

family and many overs is, "You're husband, Austin,

:07:18.:07:21.

wouldn't want to see you unhappy. He'd be up there now looking down

:07:22.:07:23.

on you saying, Ronnie, But she's still taking her style

:07:24.:07:26.

from the fabulous fifties. It was all about dreamcoats

:07:27.:07:43.

and petticoats. My skirts were very, very short

:07:44.:07:45.

and when you twirled round, We liked to show what we had

:07:46.:07:48.

underneath which used And her favourite dress

:07:49.:07:55.

from all those years ago Congratulations to them. We have had

:07:56.:08:19.

some lovely clear weather. Hope you haven't had too much fog where you

:08:20.:08:21.

are. Good afternoon, it is cold and

:08:22.:08:29.

remaining Chile over the next few days. Where we had some earlier fog,

:08:30.:08:36.

it is looking overcast. Where we have the clouds, it will feel cooler

:08:37.:08:41.

this afternoon. Light winds everywhere and ties of five to eight

:08:42.:08:48.

Celsius. Fog is also starting to reform and becoming widespread

:08:49.:08:53.

through tonight. Freezing fog may be a problem for tomorrow morning.

:08:54.:08:58.

Temperatures down to minus two Celsius. Tomorrow, Frost to watch

:08:59.:09:03.

out for as well as fog patches and some freezing fog. Motivators lift

:09:04.:09:07.

through the day and lingers in places. More cloud tomorrow

:09:08.:09:10.

afternoon adding to the chilly feel of the weather. From Wednesday

:09:11.:09:17.

onwards, the wind increases and the fog should become less of a problem.

:09:18.:09:23.

Some sunshine through the day. That is it from us. Hopefully we will see

:09:24.:09:28.
