Good evening. for the late news at 10:10pm.

:00:10.:00:10.

Police are issuing an appeal for information about an unsolved

:00:11.:00:12.

Paul Kelly was stabbed to death outside the Longacre Tavern

:00:13.:00:18.

in the early hours of New Year's Day, 2007.

:00:19.:00:22.

Now, ten years on, they hope someone might

:00:23.:00:24.

Ten years ago this pizza place was the Longacre Tavern.

:00:25.:00:32.

At midnight partygoers here wished each other a happy New Year.

:00:33.:00:38.

Within hours that goodwill had turned sour.

:00:39.:00:41.

A fight that broke out inside the pub spilled out

:00:42.:00:44.

Paul Kelly, a father-of-two, was brutally stabbed.

:00:45.:00:49.

A decade later, and his murder still hasn't been solved.

:00:50.:00:56.

Paul Kelly was 32 years old and originally from Glasgow -

:00:57.:01:00.

his parents travelled to Bath on several occasions

:01:01.:01:02.

Police say at least 20 people witnessed the fatal stabbing -

:01:03.:01:09.

but none of them ever identified the killer.

:01:10.:01:12.

Why are they not coming forward and saying to the police,

:01:13.:01:18.

I mean, there's a saying in Scotland, "You're

:01:19.:01:21.

You're doing the honest and decent thing.

:01:22.:01:27.

In a chilling twist, poems supposedly naming the murderer

:01:28.:01:30.

Now, ten years on, police hope someone will finally

:01:31.:01:35.

I would like to think that after ten years those people

:01:36.:01:40.

know that what they saw, they know how important that is.

:01:41.:01:43.

And I would stress that even information they are not sure

:01:44.:01:46.

if it is important to us or not, I would much rather

:01:47.:01:49.

The murder weapon has never been found.

:01:50.:01:53.

But officers say with so many witnesses someone

:01:54.:01:56.

We've reported on the pressure many of our hospitals have

:01:57.:02:08.

Today a leading GP in the West says doctors surgeries are also

:02:09.:02:12.

struggling to cope with the number of patients this winter.

:02:13.:02:14.

The NHS says it s providing more funding and upgrading buildings

:02:15.:02:17.

and equipment to help with the influx of patients.

:02:18.:02:19.

But Dr Peter Swinyard from Swindon, who chairs

:02:20.:02:24.

The Family Doctor Association, says people should try recovering

:02:25.:02:28.

from a cough or cold at home before visiting their GP.

:02:29.:02:32.

This sort of unexpectedly nasty cold virus, which means more people

:02:33.:02:40.

have to be seen by us, is just the straw that is breaking

:02:41.:02:43.

the camel's back, and it is meaning in some circumstances,

:02:44.:02:46.

and in some surgeries, that especially where they have

:02:47.:02:49.

terrible difficulty in recruiting doctors, that they are having to put

:02:50.:02:51.

off people who are coming in for routine appointments.

:02:52.:02:57.

Bristol City were in FA Cup third round action at Ashton Gate today,

:02:58.:03:00.

but face a replay after failing to get past League One

:03:01.:03:02.

In League One, Ellis Harrison scored four times, including a hat trick

:03:03.:03:12.

in just seven minutes, as Bristol Rovers trounced

:03:13.:03:14.

Elsewhere Swindon drew 1-1 at home against Shrewsbury,

:03:15.:03:19.

And in the National League, Forest Green Rovers

:03:20.:03:23.

To rugby - victory for Gloucester at Kingsholm this afternoon.

:03:24.:03:31.

They ran in seven tries to beat Worcester 55-19.

:03:32.:03:34.

And Bristol picked up a losing bonus point as they lost 32-26

:03:35.:03:37.

Mitch Eadie and Jason Woodward scored the Bristol tries.

:03:38.:03:41.

Woodward kicked the rest of Bristol's points.

:03:42.:03:46.

Finally, the church bells were ringing out across Cirencester

:03:47.:03:49.

this afternoon to celebrate a moment in history.

:03:50.:03:57.

It's 250 years to the day since the first peal of the 12 bells

:03:58.:04:02.

of Cirencester Parish Church took place.

:04:03.:04:05.

It's the oldest church with that number of bells

:04:06.:04:07.

12 bell ringers from across the country came this afternoon

:04:08.:04:14.

to echo the peal of 1767 - each bell rung 5000 times.

:04:15.:04:20.

Let's check on the weather - here's Holly Green.

:04:21.:04:22.

It has been pretty grey for today, and unfortunately all of that low

:04:23.:04:26.

cloud, mist and murk tends to sink its way back down again.

:04:27.:04:29.

So some poor visibilities for tonight, some splashes of rain

:04:30.:04:31.

But all of that cloud does act as a blanket,

:04:32.:04:35.

It keeps us fairly mild with lows of six or seven Celsius,

:04:36.:04:39.

and a frost-free start to tomorrow morning.

:04:40.:04:41.

For many of us, though, tomorrow once again starts on this

:04:42.:04:44.

murky note, a little rain and drizzle in the mix as well.

:04:45.:04:46.

But I think for tomorrow, fingers crossed, slightly better

:04:47.:04:49.

chance of seeing some brightness coming through.

:04:50.:04:50.

Highs getting up to nine or ten Celsius.

:04:51.:04:54.

Change in store though into the new working week.

:04:55.:04:56.

A spell of rain come the afternoon and we we'll

:04:57.:05:00.

Good evening. Our weather can be exciting, just not today. A

:05:01.:05:18.

predominantly grey day and a murky night to come. If you're on the moon

:05:19.:05:21.

on the roads, through tonight into the morning, it could be misty and

:05:22.:05:25.

foggy again in places, especially over the hills, but really just

:05:26.:05:29.

about anywhere. The cloud is the enough to produce patchy rain or

:05:30.:05:33.

drizzle, quite a damp night. Clear skies to the Easterling and

:05:34.:05:36.

anti-stall Scotland and it's here the greatest chance of a touch of

:05:37.:05:44.

frost, but for most, mild great, dismal start to Sunday morning. The

:05:45.:05:46.

mist and fog will lift. There will be a few breaks in the cloud, east

:05:47.:05:49.

of Wales,

:05:50.:05:50.
