A protest march has taken place in the centre of Bristol today

:00:10.:00:17.

against the ?100 million of cuts

:00:18.:00:18.

Councillors will vote on a final savings plan -

:00:19.:00:22.

Cody may only be four years old but the message

:00:23.:00:29.

People here are bemused why a Labour mayor

:00:30.:00:35.

is overseeing budget cuts of more than a 100 million pounds

:00:36.:00:39.

over the next five years while an expensive arena is being built.

:00:40.:00:43.

If he wants a more equal and a fairer city as he campaigned

:00:44.:00:47.

on then he has to refuse to make these cuts, services people in this

:00:48.:00:51.

city rely upon cannot stand the strain these cuts will put

:00:52.:00:53.

It's tragedy. protest on a smaller scale

:00:54.:01:11.

Here this local centre could be shut in the cuts.

:01:12.:01:14.

It's a place people pay their rent money and meet

:01:15.:01:16.

If it closes down people tell me they're worried

:01:17.:01:19.

It will revert back to the old days of the 90s when it just gonna be

:01:20.:01:25.

left derelict and people get so disheartened that's when problems

:01:26.:01:28.

It was a no-go area years ago we don't want it to go back.

:01:29.:01:34.

nobody wanted to help, not even doctors.

:01:35.:01:38.

I came to this place they got me a food bank to give me

:01:39.:01:41.

The nearest centre like this with machines people can use to pay

:01:42.:01:50.

rent for their council homes is in the city centre.

:01:51.:01:52.

Bus prices are extortionate, why should I have to pay an extra ?4

:01:53.:02:09.

to go to central Bristol to pay my rent?

:02:10.:02:15.

It's basically putting my rent up by another ?4.

:02:16.:02:18.

are to blame for the cuts and if he doesn't make savings now,

:02:19.:02:22.

the city could fall off a financial cliff.

:02:23.:02:24.

Two international rugby stars - the Vunipola brothers -

:02:25.:02:26.

returned to their first rugby club today to thank them

:02:27.:02:29.

for kick-starting their careers.Mako and Billy answered questions

:02:30.:02:31.

and then led a training session at the Thornbury Rugby Football Club.

:02:32.:02:34.

That was where their talent was first spotted.

:02:35.:02:35.

Thornbury were probably the first club to give us that platform

:02:36.:02:38.

to push on to higher and the good things and it's always nice to come

:02:39.:02:42.

back and show our face and the fact that they'd played a big role

:02:43.:02:45.

It's good because they are coming back to their old team and he's

:02:46.:02:49.

really inspiring me to be an England player.

:02:50.:02:53.

We are both very proud of the boys doing this and giving something back

:02:54.:03:01.

to the community as a thank you and make people happy.

:03:02.:03:10.

On to rugby and big afternoon for Bath -

:03:11.:03:14.

they beat Quins 22 points to 12 at the Rec.

:03:15.:03:16.

Max Clark scored Bath's only try, Rhys Priestland kicked

:03:17.:03:20.

Bristol conceded eight tries as they lost 50

:03:21.:03:27.

Rob Hawkins and Jamal Ford-Robinson scored Bristol's tries.

:03:28.:03:32.

To football - in League One, Billy Bodin scored a late equaliser

:03:33.:03:35.

to earn Bristol Rovers a point away at Port Vale.

:03:36.:03:38.

Meanwhile, Swindon drew 0-0 against Oldham at the County Ground.

:03:39.:03:41.

Gary Johnson was up against the club where

:03:42.:03:43.

he enjoyed so much success - Yeovil Town - in League 2

:03:44.:03:46.

And his Cheltenham side earned a precious

:03:47.:03:51.

three-points thanks to second half goals from Tin Plavotic

:03:52.:03:53.

And in the National League, Forest Green failed

:03:54.:03:58.

to close the gap on the leaders as they were beated 3-1 by Gateshead.

:03:59.:04:01.

Finally, a Bristol artist is the brains behind a huge treasure

:04:02.:04:05.

hunt up in Scunthorpe that started today - Luke Jerram has created five

:04:06.:04:08.

golden works of art which have been hidden around the town.

:04:09.:04:12.

To find and keep one, would-be code breakers need to study

:04:13.:04:15.

paintings at a local arts centre which have encrypted

:04:16.:04:17.

The gold objects are worth a thousand pounds or more each!

:04:18.:04:21.

Time for a weather check - here's Bee Tucker!

:04:22.:04:22.

Some of us have been lucky enough to see some sunshine today

:04:23.:04:27.

and it's been mild and as it heads through tonight, we will

:04:28.:04:30.

keep quite a lot of cloud cloud, it will tend to lower so we'll see

:04:31.:04:34.

perhaps some mist, some hill fog, perhaps a bit of drizzle, too.

:04:35.:04:37.

Temperatures similar to last night, many places getting down as low

:04:38.:04:39.

as six or 7 degrees and that does mean, tomorrow, quite a grey start.

:04:40.:04:43.

I think the cloud will be thick, low, some mist.

:04:44.:04:45.

Fairly poor visibility and I think the cloud

:04:46.:04:47.

will always be thick enough, particularly

:04:48.:04:49.

towards the West for a little bit of light rain and drizzle.

:04:50.:04:51.

Not as much sunshine, compared with this afternoon

:04:52.:04:54.

It is staying mild as we head into next week.

:04:55.:05:01.

An awful lot of cloud about, it could give some light rain

:05:02.:05:04.

at times and those winds pick up, as well.

:05:05.:05:07.

It has been a mild day to day and some of us have seen some spring

:05:08.:05:25.

sunshine. Blue skies and sunshine here above the River Thames. It has

:05:26.:05:29.

not been sunny everywhere, though. We have got more cloud around across

:05:30.:05:33.

more northerly parts of the country. Some rain to come tonight across

:05:34.:05:37.

Scotland and northern England, all clearing away by the time we get to

:05:38.:05:41.

Sunday morning. And it will be

:05:42.:05:42.
