Brighton sees the sharpest rise in rough sleepers in the country -

:00:00.:00:11.

and opens its council buildings to house the homeless.

:00:12.:00:15.

We'll be live in the city, and also in Medway -

:00:16.:00:23.

where councillors voted against opening shelters more

:00:24.:00:24.

Kent asks the Government to help pay for asylum seeking children

:00:25.:00:29.

Also in tonight's programme: a Turner Prize winning artist brings

:00:30.:00:33.

some of his biggest works to the south coast -

:00:34.:00:36.

we chat with Keith Tyson in Hastings.

:00:37.:00:38.

at 39, the oldest living tapir in captivity!

:00:39.:00:46.

The goal that saw Brighton through to the fourth

:00:47.:00:48.

round of the FA Cup - and they're queuing round the block

:00:49.:00:52.

People sleeping rough in Brighton could soon be offered the chance

:00:53.:01:15.

to stay in empty council buildings during freezing weather

:01:16.:01:17.

It comes as new figures show the city has had the highest

:01:18.:01:21.

increase in rough sleeping in the country.

:01:22.:01:23.

144 people are now living on the streets of the city,

:01:24.:01:25.

Although they've welcomed the proposals, homeless people we've

:01:26.:01:29.

spoken to on the streets of Brighton say they need a permanent

:01:30.:01:32.

Bedding down and covering up against the biting January air.

:01:33.:01:38.

Claiming a space in the city is tough, such is

:01:39.:01:43.

the demand that those sleeping rough here daren't even move their

:01:44.:01:49.

belongings but many say more temporary shelters

:01:50.:01:50.

Temporary solutions are not necessarily the way forward because

:01:51.:01:56.

it doesn't help the individual to move forward.

:01:57.:02:00.

In order to establish any kind of grounds for a future,

:02:01.:02:06.

you have to have a stable base and some sense of security.

:02:07.:02:12.

Proposed by the Green Group, councillors voted

:02:13.:02:15.

unanimously last night to explore the use of empty

:02:16.:02:17.

council buildings for homeless shelters.

:02:18.:02:19.

A similar scheme's been rolled out in Manchester this winter

:02:20.:02:22.

using a former library and children's home

:02:23.:02:24.

In Brighton, no building has yet been earmarked for the scheme

:02:25.:02:29.

but the council says it is open to options.

:02:30.:02:34.

We don't have as a council lots of vacant buildings, we've...

:02:35.:02:37.

Obviously going to be putting them to immediate use for housing, etc.

:02:38.:02:41.

If there's a possibility that there might be commercial buildings out

:02:42.:02:45.

there that, you never know, voluntary and charities would be

:02:46.:02:48.

able to work with that commercial provider and open up so we're

:02:49.:02:51.

Those who spent years on the streets though

:02:52.:02:55.

say safety in any new shelter is vital.

:02:56.:02:57.

I tended to avoid them having been in a few times, they were

:02:58.:03:01.

noisy, violent, really rather unpleasant, such that actually even

:03:02.:03:07.

the horrors of sleeping rough were better than some

:03:08.:03:09.

They need to be very closely supervised.

:03:10.:03:15.

Something the council says it acknowledges and also says that with

:03:16.:03:20.

new funding from the Government, it will bring the number of

:03:21.:03:23.

Little comfort though for those making their bed here tonight.

:03:24.:03:29.

Juliette, there are reports an increase in migrant numbers has

:03:30.:03:34.

The council told us that around 60% of those sleeping rough here are not

:03:35.:03:49.

actually from this city, they come down here because of its reputation

:03:50.:03:54.

as a tolerant place. Research has shown that out of the 144 rough

:03:55.:04:00.

sleepers here, 11 are EU migrants and style to Iraq seven on non-EU.

:04:01.:04:06.

So not exactly the numbers we are seeing in London but nonetheless

:04:07.:04:09.

contributing to a homeless crisis here made worse by the cost of

:04:10.:04:12.

living and renting. All councillors agreed last night that more terribly

:04:13.:04:17.

shelters are needed but many here argue it is simply a sticking

:04:18.:04:20.

plaster for an increasing problem that needs a more permanent

:04:21.:04:21.

solution. Thank you.

:04:22.:04:23.

Concerns about the plight of rough sleepers have also been raised

:04:24.:04:29.

in Medway following the deaths of two men in December.

:04:30.:04:31.

group had suggested opening council shelters as soon as the temperature

:04:32.:04:35.

drops to freezing but that was rejected last night.

:04:36.:04:37.

Our reporter Sara Smith is in Chatham now.

:04:38.:04:40.

Sara, remind us of the current situation there on cold nights?

:04:41.:04:47.

There is this national protocol that when it is forecast that the weather

:04:48.:04:53.

will be below zero for three consecutive nights, the council has

:04:54.:04:57.

to offer accommodation for those sleeping rough. The Labour group

:04:58.:04:59.

said that should happen after one night but last night at a council

:05:00.:05:04.

meeting, the Conservative led council voted that down. They said

:05:05.:05:08.

it would be too expensive. A bit earlier this evening, I spoke to as

:05:09.:05:18.

-- a rough sleeper. He lost his flight the next flat after being

:05:19.:05:22.

assaulted. It's like being inside a fridge.

:05:23.:05:37.

That is because of the cold? The charity helps rough sleepers here

:05:38.:05:48.

and the founder is here. What did you think about the decision? We are

:05:49.:05:52.

very disappointed in the council's decision last night. We are

:05:53.:05:55.

extremely grateful that some of the Labour group did decide to try and

:05:56.:05:59.

get the one night but unfortunately we were not successful this time.

:06:00.:06:04.

How was provision here? Council provision for rough sleepers is very

:06:05.:06:08.

limited currently. There are a lot of voluntary groups that are out

:06:09.:06:11.

there doing their best but it is not enough. We have a crisis here. What

:06:12.:06:19.

do you say? People will die. We lost two gentlemen between the 24th of

:06:20.:06:23.

December and New Year and if the temptress continued to drop like

:06:24.:06:26.

they do at the moment, we will lose more people in the streets. --

:06:27.:06:29.

temperatures. The council told us that their priority is using the

:06:30.:06:34.

budget to stop people becoming homeless in the first place.

:06:35.:06:35.

Thank you. The controversial plans

:06:36.:06:36.

to build 12,000 homes on green fields in Kent -

:06:37.:06:39.

supported by the local MP. "The Government needs

:06:40.:06:48.

to get its chequebook out because the bill for lone

:06:49.:06:50.

asylum-seeking children when they turn 18 is set

:06:51.:06:53.

to double in Kent" - the stinging words of the leader

:06:54.:06:56.

of the county council, Paul Carter, who says Kent is already facing

:06:57.:06:59.

a ?2 million shortfall after looking after unaccompanied

:07:00.:07:03.

asylum-seeking children. But the number turning 18

:07:04.:07:07.

and still needing support from the council is set to rise

:07:08.:07:10.

from 688 to more than 1000 That will increase the deficit

:07:11.:07:16.

to ?4 million which the council says puts it at "unacceptable financial

:07:17.:07:21.

risk". I've suggested that they vow a bit

:07:22.:07:24.

of the foreign aid budget, after all we are supporting people taking

:07:25.:07:27.

refuge in this country from challenging parts of the globe,

:07:28.:07:30.

therefore it shouldn't fall on the rate payers, the council taxpayers

:07:31.:07:35.

of Kent, the Home Office should be reimbursing us in full and that's

:07:36.:07:38.

what we expect them to do. Well, the Home Office has told us

:07:39.:07:42.

it's "grateful" that local authorities like Kent are caring

:07:43.:07:44.

for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and that funding levels

:07:45.:07:48.

have recently been "substantially That rise means the authority now

:07:49.:07:56.

gets ?200 a week, up from 150. But compare that with the amount

:07:57.:08:01.

given for looking after a minor - such as a 17-year-old asylum-seeking

:08:02.:08:04.

child - for which councils like Kent Our political editor

:08:05.:08:08.

Helen Catt is with us now. Paul Carter has written

:08:09.:08:16.

to the Immigration Minister Robert Goodwill saying he needs to do

:08:17.:08:18.

the honourable thing and pay up - but why is there going to be

:08:19.:08:21.

a sudden jump to ?4 million? It's actually explain that because

:08:22.:08:29.

the council get less money wants the child turns 18. If they choose to

:08:30.:08:33.

stay on an education or training, the council is still financially

:08:34.:08:36.

responsible for them. The Home Office about ?200 a week should be

:08:37.:08:40.

enough to cover their costs. Ken Khalili seems to disagree here. A

:08:41.:08:46.

bit of context, this year Kent County Council has almost ?2 billion

:08:47.:08:49.

to spend so in that sense, this is a very small part of it. Of course, it

:08:50.:08:53.

is true that Kent takes on a higher amount of child asylum seekers than

:08:54.:08:59.

many other areas. We council its remaining optimistic about getting

:09:00.:09:02.

extra cash. We understand that finance officers from the Home

:09:03.:09:05.

Office and the Council are due to meet in the next ten days that the

:09:06.:09:09.

hope that an agreement can be met about that deficit.

:09:10.:09:10.

Thank you. Long-running plans to build a second

:09:11.:09:12.

rail line linking the Sussex Coast to London will be pitched

:09:13.:09:15.

to the Transport Secretary The Brighton Mainline two proposals

:09:16.:09:17.

would include restoring an old line between Hever and Uckfield,

:09:18.:09:26.

building 20 kilometres of new track around Lewes and running trains

:09:27.:09:28.

in to Canary Wharf in London Plans for two huge communications

:09:29.:09:31.

masts, one taller than the The Shard in London, have been rejected

:09:32.:09:35.

by Dover councillors. Two separate companies wanted

:09:36.:09:37.

to build them in Richborough to speed up international

:09:38.:09:40.

high-frequency financial trading. But the council said

:09:41.:09:45.

they would have been an eye-sore Fixed Odds Betting Terminals

a motion calling on Government to reduce high street gaming machine

:09:52.:09:59.

:10:00.:10:01.

on the government to give local authorities more powers to manage

:10:09.:10:19.

development near Folkestone are being welcomed by the local MP

:10:20.:10:21.

despite opposition Damian Collins says

:10:22.:10:23.

that the development of 12,000 homes at Otterpool garden village

:10:24.:10:28.

will provide badly needed homes and The Government hasn't yet set

:10:29.:10:31.

out its plans for house building but it has said it wants

:10:32.:10:35.

to accelerate development. Ministers have already

:10:36.:10:39.

promised funding and support Our environment correspondent

:10:40.:10:41.

Yvette Austin reports. Taking to the streets in protest,

:10:42.:10:52.

anger over plans to build a whole new town much of it on farmland near

:10:53.:11:00.

Folkestone. Villagers optically concerned as the thousands of homes

:11:01.:11:03.

would be on their doorstep and they see the countryside, historic sites

:11:04.:11:08.

and ultimately their way of life would be destroyed. Members of my

:11:09.:11:11.

own family who cannot get on the housing ladder and it's precisely

:11:12.:11:16.

because this development will not address the issue that I am so

:11:17.:11:21.

partially opposed to it. Nobody is saying that you don't need houses

:11:22.:11:25.

but there isn't a need for them, it is the sheer scale of juggernaut

:11:26.:11:32.

that is being thrown at this. We are in danger of losing places that are

:11:33.:11:35.

special. The proposed new town covers a large area south of the M20

:11:36.:11:41.

including the former racecourse. It could see up to 12,000 new homes

:11:42.:11:46.

being built, along with community facilities, commercial space,

:11:47.:11:49.

schools and GP surgeries. We are worried that this is going to suck

:11:50.:11:53.

development into an area that is already powerfully stressed. There

:11:54.:11:57.

are air quality problems along the M20, there are water stresses and at

:11:58.:12:02.

what cost to people's quality? The Government announced funding for the

:12:03.:12:06.

so-called Otterpool last year as part of the plan to speed up

:12:07.:12:10.

much-needed house-building in the south-east. According to the

:12:11.:12:13.

planning Association, the region built 20,000 homes a year between

:12:14.:12:20.

2011 and 2015. It was estimated that 37,000 a year when needed and so to

:12:21.:12:25.

catch up, 53,000 houses need to be built in the south-east every year

:12:26.:12:30.

between 2015 and 2020. We need the jobs and the infrastructure, we need

:12:31.:12:35.

the houses and we have got a site which is right next to iterate in

:12:36.:12:39.

action and a railway station that can deliver a huge economic

:12:40.:12:42.

investment that will benefit all residents for many years to come. It

:12:43.:12:48.

is early days for Otterpool, the council is drawing up a master plan

:12:49.:12:52.

and has started consulting an idea. It is a battle between development

:12:53.:12:53.

and the countryside. And you can see more

:12:54.:12:55.

on that story and the full interview with Damian Collins

:12:56.:12:58.

on the Sunday Politics South East Our top story tonight: People

:12:59.:13:14.

sleeping rough in writing could soon be offered the option should sleep

:13:15.:13:18.

in empty counselling buildings during the freezing weather. The

:13:19.:13:23.

city has had the highest increase in rough sleeping in the country.

:13:24.:13:24.

Also in tonight's programme: Happy birthday to Kingut -

:13:25.:13:27.

And after a bitterly cold week, it's turning less cold as

:13:28.:13:31.

we look towards the weekend but it's going hand-in-hand with strong winds

:13:32.:13:34.

I will have the details for you in the forecast a little

:13:35.:13:41.

If you have a story you think we should be covering an BBC South East

The first exhibition of 2017 at The Jerwood in Hastings breaks

:14:11.:14:12.

all sorts of arty personal bests for the gallery.

:14:13.:14:14.

Turner Prize winner Keith Tyson breaks records for both the most

:14:15.:14:17.

artworks and the largest picture ever displayed there.

:14:18.:14:23.

The show called Turn Back Now features 20 years of what he calls

:14:24.:14:28.

studio wall drawings, intricate striking pictures inspired

:14:29.:14:29.

Robin Gibson met him for a preview of the show.

:14:30.:14:42.

He's an enigmatic figure, happy to talk about his work, his life and

:14:43.:14:46.

The Jerwood show is almost a scrapbook

:14:47.:14:51.

So drawn to this one because, you know, you've taken on

:14:52.:15:00.

Yeah, in there we've got Turner, personal painting, a Lego thing

:15:01.:15:12.

from my child and this is the boat in the background of The Simpsons.

:15:13.:15:15.

But this was to do with the idea of a naval battle

:15:16.:15:18.

He left school at 15 to go to work in his native Cumbria where the idea

:15:19.:15:26.

of a life in art wasn't on the agenda.

:15:27.:15:28.

I was in the shipyard for five years, I wasn't very happy

:15:29.:15:32.

there and I always wanted to go to art college but I was a

:15:33.:15:35.

working-class guy and they said, no, you are going to learn a trade so I

:15:36.:15:40.

became a fitter and turner, tried out nuclear submarines and then I

:15:41.:15:43.

I didn't know I wanted to be an artist, I just

:15:44.:15:47.

It was the right time, he's had critical acclaim, success and a

:15:48.:15:51.

Just look at all of this, every square inch of wall

:15:52.:15:56.

space covered, the Jerwood has never seen anything quite like it.

:15:57.:16:00.

You get the real impression of an artist who

:16:01.:16:02.

Keith is someone that we have wanted to work with

:16:03.:16:08.

since before the gallery opened, he's been on our radar.

:16:09.:16:10.

Sussex-based artist, he won the Turner prize in 2002 and has had

:16:11.:16:17.

sort of international fame and exhibitions around

:16:18.:16:19.

Yes, with a home in the Sussex Downs near Brighton, we can

:16:20.:16:28.

An extraordinary show by an artist for

:16:29.:16:31.

whom working is breathing, it's here until April.

:16:32.:16:33.

Take your time. There's a lot to see.

:16:34.:16:45.

Today marks Holocaust Memorial Day, remembering the millions of people

:16:46.:16:47.

who died during the Second World War at the hands of the Nazis -

:16:48.:16:55.

and victims of other genocides since.

:16:56.:16:56.

This year's theme is "How Can Life Go On?",

:16:57.:16:59.

and groups across the South East have been coming together

:17:00.:17:02.

to remember those who died - and to talk about how similar

:17:03.:17:05.

horrors can be prevented in the future.

:17:06.:17:07.

Dan Leavy 27th, 1945. The Davis camp Auschwitz was liberated. -- January.

:17:11.:17:32.

Millions died here, an atrocity that change what history and the lives of

:17:33.:17:38.

so many. We collapse like that when Hitler marched into Vienna, that was

the end of her world. Her mother managed to escape the Nazis because

:18:17.:18:22.

The key is to make things relevant and give people a link they so what

:18:23.:18:26.

is going on at the moment and what has happened in the past. History is

experience the concentrate on camp themselves. Unthinkable for the

:18:51.:18:55.

generation that came before them. They kept silent deliberately and

:18:56.:19:00.

that is why so many people now are desperately delving into their

:19:01.:19:04.

history because their parents didn't talk because I think so many of them

:19:05.:19:08.

were traumatised, I suspect so many of them had to do things they felt

:19:09.:19:10.

profoundly ashamed of. Promotion to the Premier League

:19:11.:19:18.

might be Brighton's number one goal this season,

:19:19.:19:20.

but tomorrow they turn their attention to avoiding a giant

:19:21.:19:22.

killing in the FA Cup. The Seagulls travel to non-league

:19:23.:19:25.

Lincoln City in the fourth round. While Brighton are top

:19:26.:19:28.

of the Championship, Lincoln are top of the National League -

:19:29.:19:30.

72 places separate the two sides. Brighton famously reached

:19:31.:19:35.

the FA Cup final in 1983, but the furthest Lincoln ever

:19:36.:19:40.

managed was a Fifth Round Tomorrow's game is at

:19:41.:19:43.

the Sincil Bank Stadium - with a modest capacity of 10,000,

:19:44.:19:49.

compared to 30,000 at the Amex. But while the Imps are confident

:19:50.:19:52.

they can cause an upset, as Charlie Rose reports,

:19:53.:19:56.

Brighton would love another trip You can forget Brighton's

:19:57.:19:58.

league-topping Championship because this weekend it

:19:59.:20:05.

is all about the FA Cup. And the Falmer Faithful

:20:06.:20:09.

would love to see a repeat of 1983, which saw

:20:10.:20:12.

the Seagulls make it to the final of In this year's campaign,

:20:13.:20:16.

standing in their way right now are Lincoln,

:20:17.:20:23.

they're top of League 2. OK, it's the National

:20:24.:20:27.

League, but being three divisions below hasn't

:20:28.:20:29.

stopped their fans queueing Licking their lips at the prospect

:20:30.:20:31.

of a giant-killing. They're a premiership

:20:32.:20:39.

team, basically, and we're tough and we've got a great

:20:40.:20:43.

defence and I think we can do it and I think we can get the win
