A teenage shop assistant threatened by a man with an axe at his family's

:00:11.:00:14.

shop in Gravesend says he was terrified the armed robber

:00:15.:00:16.

A police helicopter was scrambled to search for the suspect,

:00:17.:00:22.

This is the terrifying moment a man brandishing an axe burst into a shop

:00:23.:00:27.

in Gravesend and tried to force the 18-year-old cashier

:00:28.:00:30.

The shop assistant, Havinees, is the owner's son

:00:31.:00:39.

and his two younger brothers, aged 14 and 15,

:00:40.:00:41.

I thought he was joking so I started smiling at first.

:00:42.:00:46.

he wasn't joking and I got really scared.

:00:47.:00:50.

I was worried he was going to hurt my brothers because he, like,

:00:51.:00:53.

got the axe up, trying to, like, threaten me.

:00:54.:00:59.

In all the commotion, one of the brothers was able

:01:00.:01:01.

to alert their dad who was loading up a van at the back

:01:02.:01:04.

My son said to me, "Come in, Dad, quickly.

:01:05.:01:08.

He heard my voice then he ran, opened the door and ran away.

:01:09.:01:16.

The suspect fled out of this door,

:01:17.:01:20.

despite the best efforts of the police helicopter

:01:21.:01:24.

and a dog unit which were called out

:01:25.:01:26.

Havinees says it is made him feel very vulnerable.

:01:27.:01:30.

I wasn't before but now I'm, like, thinking

:01:31.:01:34.

anyone can walk in at any time and then ask for money.

:01:35.:01:38.

Kent Police say the suspect is white, around 5'7"

:01:42.:01:46.

The family of a man from Eastbourne who died of altitude sickness

:01:47.:01:50.

in South America have raised ?10,000 to fund research into the condition.

:01:51.:01:53.

Adam Savory was 25 when he died on a trip to Peru in 2012.

:01:54.:01:56.

The charity set up in his memory is helping a team of sports

:01:57.:02:00.

scientists at Brighton University find out why some people

:02:01.:02:03.

are particularly susceptible to altitude sickness.

:02:04.:02:08.

They've also developed an app to help other travellers.

:02:09.:02:13.

The symptoms are quite subtle and they kind of creep up on

:02:14.:02:16.

you and you may think you have a cold or a hangover or...

:02:17.:02:19.

You don't really think it could be something very serious so it's just

:02:20.:02:23.

it is a problem and just, you know, keeping an eye on it.

:02:24.:02:29.

The Kent MP and chair of the Culture, Media

:02:30.:02:31.

and Sport Select Committee, Damian Collins, says he'd

:02:32.:02:33.

like to see arts organisations innovate more in response

:02:34.:02:35.

Local authorities have reduced their funding for the arts

:02:36.:02:46.

by an average of 20% since 2010 and most councils

:02:47.:02:49.

are planning to cut the money they give to the sector further over

:02:50.:02:52.

Football now and Brighton suffered a humiliating defeat in the fourth

:02:53.:02:56.

They were beaten 3-1 by the non-league side Lincoln City,

:02:57.:03:00.

In form and focusing on Premiership promotion,

:03:01.:03:05.

Brighton Hove's FA Cup run took them

:03:06.:03:07.

The Seagulls started well, a goal from Richard Towell.

:03:08.:03:12.

But then everything went horribly wrong.

:03:13.:03:15.

First, a penalty for Lincoln, then the Albion scored an own goal.

:03:16.:03:19.

The promise of the Imps becoming giant-killers was no longer

:03:20.:03:21.

a fairy tale when Theo Robinson made it 3-1.

:03:22.:03:28.

We have to burden that as a club and certainly

:03:29.:03:33.

But these are tough days and you hope what you can do

:03:34.:03:39.

But being taught a lesson by a club

:03:40.:03:43.

three divisions below Brighton Hove was tough for fans.

:03:44.:03:46.

I'm a big supporter of Brighton and...

:03:47.:03:54.

I don't really mind because I think we are going up to the

:03:55.:04:02.

I'm a little bit disappointed but if we go up to the

:04:03.:04:06.

The last time Lincoln City got to the last 16

:04:07.:04:11.

A historic result which the Falmer Faithful will want to forget.

:04:12.:04:16.

Peter Whittlesea, BBC South East Today.

:04:17.:04:21.

So, let's have a look at the rest of yesterday's football action.

:04:22.:04:24.

In League One, Charlton Athletic were away to Bolton Wanderers.

:04:25.:04:26.

Reduced to ten men, the Addicks came from behind to win 2-1.

:04:27.:04:31.

Gillingham were at home and held to a 1-1 draw

:04:32.:04:34.

Defender Adideji Oshilaja's left-footed shot was enough to earn

:04:35.:04:38.

And in League Two, Crawley's James Collins equalised

:04:39.:04:43.

10-man Notts County went on to win 2-1.

:04:44.:04:50.

Let's take a look at the weather now with Wendy Hurrell.

:04:51.:04:53.

It worked out to be a rather soggy Sunday in the end,

:04:54.:04:58.

And we will see a little bit more rain as we go through this week.

:04:59.:05:02.

This was the beautiful scene at Broadstairs

:05:03.:05:05.

and the beach there throughout this morning

:05:06.:05:08.

and it was a similarly bright picture elsewhere,

:05:09.:05:10.

nut not for long because it clouded over and

:05:11.:05:12.

Although, on the plus side to that, it's going

:05:13.:05:18.

So, still some heavy rain trailing its way through

:05:19.:05:21.

Throughout the night, it clears away to the east

:05:22.:05:24.

so really misty and murky, particularly over higher ground,

:05:25.:05:28.

the downs, but that will keep as well warmed.

:05:29.:05:31.

We will have temperatures no longer than six or seven Celsius.

:05:32.:05:35.

but really quite gloomy, misty, murky condition and I don't think

:05:36.:05:39.

we're really going to shift that as we go through the afternoon.

:05:40.:05:42.

In fact, there could be a little bit of further drizzle

:05:43.:05:44.

However, we're up into double figures and that's going to be

:05:45.:05:48.

Lots of cloud around, maybe a bit brighter

:05:49.:05:51.

but at least we don't have to worry about too many overnight frosts.

:05:52.:05:59.

Z, we will be back at 10pm tonight. Goodbye.

:06:00.:06:11.

There was some sunny and cheerful weather across the UK today.

:06:12.:06:18.

Scotland and the far north of England, but further south, a rainy,

:06:19.:06:23.

ugly picture, and it's still pouring with rain in some places. The week

:06:24.:06:29.

ahead, more spells of rain and some wind towards the end of the week.

:06:30.:06:34.

There is a lot happening here. There's a lot of weather fronts

:06:35.:06:39.

lining up in the Atlantic, a lot of isobars and lots of wind heading in

:06:40.:06:46.

our direction. From tonight and into tomorrow, this unsettled spell of

:06:47.:06:50.

weather continues. Get rid of one area of rain in the early hours of

:06:51.:06:55.

the morning, and then another band of rain comes in. In the north,

:06:56.:07:01.

after that sunny day, clear skies and really cold. The Glens of

:07:02.:07:07.

Scotland could get down to minus ten. Here is the
