We are back with the late news at 10.30pm.

:00:00.:00:09.

The family of a Wiltshire teenager who died just before Christmas say

:00:10.:00:12.

they will work tirelessly to support the air ambulance charity that

:00:13.:00:15.

Hundreds of friends and family gathered to celebrate the life

:00:16.:00:22.

of 14-year-old Hannah Cubin who died when on a sleepover in December.

:00:23.:00:25.

Paramedics from Wiltshire Air Ambulance tried to save her.

:00:26.:00:27.

Now her parents want to raise money and awareness to say thank you.

:00:28.:00:36.

A candle for a life snuffed out too soon.

:00:37.:00:39.

But friends and family of Hannah Cubin are determined

:00:40.:00:41.

something good will come out her death.

:00:42.:00:47.

-- something good will come out of her death.

:00:48.:00:49.

Hundreds came to a gathering today to celebrate her life.

:00:50.:00:51.

Since the 14-year-old died last month, over ?50,000 has

:00:52.:00:58.

been raised in her name, much from anonymous donors,

:00:59.:01:04.

to go to the Air Ambulance Service that tried to save her life.

:01:05.:01:07.

We were just totally dumbfounded that this service

:01:08.:01:09.

existed purely on public donations, utterly dumbfounded.

:01:10.:01:14.

A service that we think is absolutely essential,

:01:15.:01:16.

Hannah was a fit and active teenager.

:01:17.:01:25.

She'd had gone to a sleepover at friends on December 10th.

:01:26.:01:28.

Just before 11pm, she stopped breathing.

:01:29.:01:30.

But supporting Wiltshire Air Ambulance, the charity

:01:31.:01:40.

to help their daughter, gives them some comfort.

:01:41.:01:44.

It is the huge positive that has come out of the worst tragedy.

:01:45.:01:49.

But it is the only way that we could see going forward,

:01:50.:01:52.

because it was a dark place without any positivity.

:01:53.:01:55.

Her dad's motorbike has been renamed.

:01:56.:01:59.

But her memory will live on in her family's fundraising.

:02:00.:02:03.

Imogen Sellers, BBC Points West, Crudwell, Wiltshire.

:02:04.:02:09.

Rescue teams in Wales searching for a missing paramedic from Bristol

:02:10.:02:11.

David Skeen was last seen on Tuesday.

:02:12.:02:14.

The 51-year-old had recently moved to Wales from the west.

:02:15.:02:16.

The body hasn't yet been formally identified but his family have been

:02:17.:02:19.

In rugby this weekend, a dominant Gloucester eased

:02:20.:02:29.

to a bonus point Premiership win with seven tries against Worcester

:02:30.:02:33.

at Kingsholm, including this to start with from Jonny May.

:02:34.:02:36.

In-form Gloucester are eighth, two points below the top six.

:02:37.:02:39.

And Bristol played their part in a superb game at Northampton Saints

:02:40.:02:42.

Mitch Eadie and Jason Woodward here scored the Bristol tries.

:02:43.:02:53.

Let's turn to football and take a look at the weekend's goal action.

:02:54.:02:59.

Bristol City gave debuts to three new signings,

:03:00.:03:02.

but still face a replay after playing out an FA Cup draw

:03:03.:03:05.

Frank Fielding produced a fine save to deny David Ball early on.

:03:06.:03:11.

City had 63% posession, and 18 shots, but couldn't

:03:12.:03:13.

In League One, Ellis Harrison struck a hat-trick inside seven first-half

:03:14.:03:21.

minutes, and ended with four goals, as Bristol Rovers

:03:22.:03:24.

thrashed Northampton 5-0 at the Memorial Stadium.

:03:25.:03:25.

Yes, a really good game today, best

:03:26.:03:28.

Ellis Harrison was superb, thoroughly

:03:29.:03:33.

The team deserved everything they got.

:03:34.:03:36.

Swindon drew 1-1 at home against Shrewsbury.

:03:37.:03:38.

And in the National League, Forest Green closed the gap

:03:39.:03:43.

to second-placed Tranmere to just a point, with a comfortable 5-1 win

:03:44.:03:45.

over ten-man Bromley, thanks in part to a brace

:03:46.:03:48.

Finally, Somerset explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes is preparing

:03:49.:03:57.

to embark on his latest challenge to climb the highest

:03:58.:03:59.

It's the latest adventure in his ongoing mission to become

:04:00.:04:02.

the first person to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest

:04:03.:04:05.

mountain on each continent, all to raise money for the charity

:04:06.:04:08.

We spoke to him via Skype this afternoon

:04:09.:04:11.

and asked him how things were shaping up.

:04:12.:04:23.

We are acclimatising for a day, maybe two days depending

:04:24.:04:25.

on how we feel, headaches and all the rest of it.

:04:26.:04:29.

Then we start the really difficult stuff, if you want

:04:30.:04:31.

Summit day will be worst of all and it includes a one-mile,

:04:32.:04:40.

highly exposed traverse nearly across the top with a 2000-foot

:04:41.:04:42.

It is a massive challenge and we are so grateful he has chosen

:04:43.:04:47.

The fundraising he is doing is incredible.

:04:48.:04:52.

So, he is loving the fact people are really behind him

:04:53.:05:01.

Let's move a little closer to home and check

:05:02.:05:14.

It has been a fairly stagnant weekend, but we have got a more

:05:15.:05:21.

unsettled look to things for the working week.

:05:22.:05:23.

Tonight, a fair bit of cloud out there and it sinks its way down,

:05:24.:05:27.

giving us mist and murk and hill fog, as well as patchy

:05:28.:05:30.

Poor visibility but staying mild with lows of seven or eight.

:05:31.:05:33.

A murky, grey start to Monday morning.

:05:34.:05:35.

Later in the morning, we find outbreaks of rain working in.

:05:36.:05:38.

A few lively bursts with strong winds accompanying the rain.

:05:39.:05:41.

Brighter during the day but the risk of further showers.

:05:42.:05:44.

These are our top temperatures, but it feels chillier

:05:45.:05:46.

Windy at times for this week, especially from Wednesday,

:05:47.:05:52.

turning colder on Thursday with the risk of something

:05:53.:05:54.

We're back in the late news, after Sherlock

:05:55.:06:09.

After a dull weekend for many of us, the weather gets shaken to life this

:06:10.:06:17.

week. The real driver for the first wake-up call is
