Hundreds gathered outside Bath's Central Library today

:00:09.:00:11.

to protest against plans to close the facility.

:00:12.:00:12.

Bath and North East Somerset council wants to move to a smaller

:00:13.:00:15.

building to save money, but many aren't happy with the idea.

:00:16.:00:18.

If silence is golden inside libraries, outside today

:00:19.:00:29.

CHANTING: What do we want? ALL: The library.

:00:30.:00:34.

Where do we want it? ALL: Here!

:00:35.:00:37.

As word has spread in Bath of council plans

:00:38.:00:40.

So, opposition has organised itself into a clear message

:00:41.:00:45.

Today, we're showing the city of Bath and other councillors

:00:46.:00:50.

and the government how much we love this library,

:00:51.:00:52.

I think it's an investment in the future.

:00:53.:00:57.

If we cut this, were cutting possibilities for our

:00:58.:01:00.

Bath and North East Somerset Council says it needs to plug

:01:01.:01:05.

a ?49 million hole in its budget by 2020 and they say by moving

:01:06.:01:09.

the library away from this location that will save ?800,000 a year

:01:10.:01:13.

The council says it wants to start a new chapter -

:01:14.:01:20.

moving it into a building that already has other public services.

:01:21.:01:24.

It's unclear whether any books would actually be displayed

:01:25.:01:27.

there, though people could order the title they wanted online.

:01:28.:01:31.

We have to keep with the modern age and move forward -

:01:32.:01:35.

so providing better Wi-Fi services and more computers and family space.

:01:36.:01:39.

Plans will be shown at the end of the month and the council say

:01:40.:01:46.

Meanwhile, the online petition to stop the library

:01:47.:01:51.

moving has already had several thousand signatures.

:01:52.:01:59.

A 40-year-old man convicted of trafficking women

:02:00.:02:01.

from the Czech Republic to Bristol to work in the sex industry has been

:02:02.:02:04.

brought back to the UK to serve his sentence.

:02:05.:02:06.

Vojtech Paloc fled before he could stand trial,

:02:07.:02:08.

Avon and Somerset Police officers collected him from Prague

:02:09.:02:14.

overnight and now he'll serve a nine-and-a-half year jail term.

:02:15.:02:18.

The birthplace of 50s film actress Diana Dors was marked

:02:19.:02:20.

It was unveiled before family, friends and fans

:02:21.:02:24.

And the famous 1959 pink Cadillac given to Diana Dors by a major film

:02:25.:02:29.

The actress's colourful career won her many fans and she's always

:02:30.:02:34.

One of her early films in 1947 had its premiere

:02:35.:02:44.

So Diana very much held Swindon to her heart and I

:02:45.:02:49.

think the local people also are proud that she was born in Swindon.

:02:50.:02:55.

Football: Bristol City lost 3-2 in the Severnside

:02:56.:02:57.

Tammy Abraham's 18th goal of the season looked to have settled

:02:58.:03:02.

the tie but Cardiff hit back with two late goals.

:03:03.:03:05.

Defeat as well for Bristol Rovers who lost 3-1 away at Fleetwood.

:03:06.:03:08.

:03:09.:03:11.

:03:12.:03:14.

A late winner from Yaser Kasim secured a superb victory for Swindon

:03:15.:03:18.

In League 2 Yeovil drew 1-1 at Wycombe.

:03:19.:03:23.

Kevin Dawson scoring from the spot for the Glovers.

:03:24.:03:25.

And Cheltenham earned a precious 3-0 victory

:03:26.:03:27.

against relegation rivals Accrington.

:03:28.:03:29.

Finally two goals from Marcus Kelly put Forest Green Rovers

:03:30.:03:31.

into the third round of the FA Trophy as they beat Chester.

:03:32.:03:37.

And in rugby Gloucester are away at Treviso

:03:38.:03:38.

The start was delayed while they found a pitch fit to play on.

:03:39.:03:49.

Latest door -- score is Treviso zero, Gloucester 29.

:03:50.:04:00.

Time for a weather check now with Bee.

:04:01.:04:06.

Light winds tonight and a lot of towns staying damp. Really,

:04:07.:04:14.

temperatures potentially below freezing so we could see ice on the

:04:15.:04:23.

roads tomorrow. Milder air pushes in so it will be more of the wet stuff

northern Wales and England too. A chilly night across the East, much

milder. Tomorrow, everything nudges further east which gives us an issue
