The special school under investigation for pupil safdty

:00:00.:00:08.

Will paying by contactless credit cards make travelling

:00:09.:00:18.

And later on: A campaign to celebrate the life of a lerchant

:00:19.:00:22.

who loomed large over Newbury in Tudor times.

:00:23.:00:38.

The future of a special school in Fairford, where all the children

:00:39.:00:42.

were removed in the summer, is in doubt after the counchl

:00:43.:00:44.

revealed it's no longer financially viable.

:00:45.:00:46.

A consultation starts on Monday on plans to close Coln Housd.

:00:47.:00:48.

Separately, a number of investigations are continuing

:00:49.:00:50.

following concerns about thd safety of children at the school.

:00:51.:00:52.

Even before Ofsted published the results of its inspection

:00:53.:00:59.

earlier this year, the council learnt of worrying concerns -

:01:00.:01:04.

most notably a high number of physical restraints being used

:01:05.:01:06.

on pupils and a failure of the school's management

:01:07.:01:09.

As a result, the county council stepped in and removed the pupils

:01:10.:01:14.

And tonight I understand the headteacher and three

:01:15.:01:19.

non-teaching members of staff have been suspended.

:01:20.:01:21.

The school is being run by an interim head, along

:01:22.:01:24.

with an interim board of governors, after the original board

:01:25.:01:27.

And as for the reasons why the children were removed

:01:28.:01:34.

earlier this year, very little at this stage is being made public.

:01:35.:01:37.

I have to be very careful what I say because I don't want to prejudice

:01:38.:01:41.

There are clearly a number of concerns about children's safety.

:01:42.:01:45.

There were no allegations m`de, as far as I'm aware,

:01:46.:01:48.

that have come forward regarding sexual abuse.

:01:49.:01:50.

I know that has been a rumotr that has been going around and I do not

:01:51.:01:54.

The council says demand for Coln House has dropped to such

:01:55.:01:57.

a level that they'll no longer be able to afford to keep

:01:58.:02:00.

That means that the school will be making a crippling loss,

:02:01.:02:05.

By 2018-2019, we will be having to find ?2.5 million just

:02:06.:02:13.

the council mishandled the removal of the pupils

:02:14.:02:18.

Teachers who are still at Coln House are now being given extra training

:02:19.:02:22.

and others are on placements at other schools.

:02:23.:02:29.

But reluctantly, in the current climate, the union accepts

:02:30.:02:31.

that the school won't be able to stay open.

:02:32.:02:33.

Whilst we are saddened by the fact that it might mean,

:02:34.:02:38.

been quite popular and servdd the needs of the community well

:02:39.:02:41.

the case for the lack of financial viability is quite strong

:02:42.:02:43.

and I think it is fair to s`y that, having talked to members,

:02:44.:02:47.

we are quite resigned to thd fact that the most likely outcomd

:02:48.:02:51.

All of the children removed from here in the summer are now

:02:52.:02:57.

at other schools and it now seems increasingly likely they'll become

:02:58.:02:59.

the last intake of pupils to be taught at Coln House.

:03:00.:03:02.

Steve Knibbs, BBC South Today, Fairford.

:03:03.:03:10.

Five men have appeared in court in Oxford charged

:03:11.:03:12.

with historical sexual offences against teenage girls.

:03:13.:03:14.

They were among those arrested during early

:03:15.:03:16.

They're charged with a rangd of offences including kidnap,

:03:17.:03:19.

trafficking and conspiracy to rape between 2000 and 2004.

:03:20.:03:21.

They've been remanded in custody and will appear before

:03:22.:03:23.

A Thames Valley Police officer has been jailed for seven years

:03:24.:03:31.

PC Richard Hale joined the force in 2003.

:03:32.:03:36.

Two years before he'd raped a woman who was then in her 20s.

:03:37.:03:39.

They visited pubs in Witney before he took her to a house in C`rterton

:03:40.:03:43.

House prices are dropping slightly in Oxford, according

:03:44.:03:52.

The analysts, Hometrack, say the average house in Oxford now

:03:53.:04:00.

Hometrack says that since J`nuary, the market has slowed,

:04:01.:04:06.

partly because of economic uncertainty.

:04:07.:04:10.

Bus passengers in Oxfordshire are among the first in the country

:04:11.:04:13.

to be able to pay for their journeys using contactless

:04:14.:04:15.

The new system's part of a multimillion pound invdstment

:04:16.:04:20.

The Transport Minister Andrdw Jones was at today's launch.

:04:21.:04:25.

Katharine Da Costa went along to find out more.

:04:26.:04:29.

Now Stagecoach has installed contactless payment on all

:04:30.:04:35.

of its Oxfordshire buses and Oxford Tube coaches.

:04:36.:04:45.

It is I am very keen to see this technology rolled out. We h`ve seen

:04:46.:04:51.

government support for it across the country. I can see customer benefits

:04:52.:04:55.

and BBC that, you see more people choosing that mode of transport --

:04:56.:05:00.

and where you see that,. It's the first operator outside

:05:01.:05:03.

of London to offer its passdngers The Oxford bus company

:05:04.:05:09.

hopes to do the same It is great because people do not

:05:10.:05:17.

have a lot of change or cash in your wallet or pocket, so it makds it

:05:18.:05:20.

the public transportation that we the public transportation that we

:05:21.:05:25.

have in Oxford. It is quite fiddly to get Carter Cash. Especially when

:05:26.:05:30.

you are buying your ticket. This would definitely be a good hdea

:05:31.:05:32.

To keep up with passenger ddmands in the 21st century,

:05:33.:05:34.

Stagecoach says it's investhng ?15 million in its

:05:35.:05:36.

We want an application to wdeks ago and that allows you to plan out a

:05:37.:05:47.

journey and to track your boss and also pay for your travel on the app.

:05:48.:05:52.

This is another development on that front to make the bus is much more

The Duchess of Cornwall has been in Swindon today to celebrate

:08:48.:08:50.

She named the square outsidd the station in honour of thd man

who helped Brunel establish the railworks there.

People will now walk out into Sir Daniel Gooch Place.

Yes, I am really pleased, it is a great honour to have Her Roxal

in West Oxfordshire to elect It follows the departure

of David Cameron last month, after representing

Witney since 2001. 14 candidates are standing

:09:38.:09:39.

in the by-election. People have until 10pm

:09:40.:09:40.

to cast their vote. Americans living in this cotntry

:09:41.:09:42.

could have a crucial role to play in the outcome

:09:43.:09:44.

of the US presidential election More than 300,000

:09:45.:09:49.

Americans live in the UK - and a study from Oxford University

:09:50.:09:51.

suggests more have registerdd In last night's debate, Don`ld Trump

:09:52.:09:53.

and Hillary Clinton traded blows over everything

:09:54.:09:57.

from immigration to Vladimir Putin. From everything that I see, Vladimir

:09:58.:10:11.

Putin has no respect for thhs person. That is because he would

:10:12.:10:14.

rather have a puppet than... You are rather have a puppet than... You are

:10:15.:10:20.

the puppet! I have made the cause of Children and Families Bill hn my

:10:21.:10:24.

life's work. We will make Alerica great again and it must start now.

:10:25.:10:26.

Earlier I spoke to Dr Halbert Jones from the Rothermere American

:10:27.:10:29.

Institute at the University of Oxford.

:10:30.:10:31.

I asked him if the debates had answered voters questions.

:10:32.:10:36.

I think a lot of voters havd been turned off by the hostility that has

:10:37.:10:43.

been on display in the debates and the personal attacks that h`ve been

:10:44.:10:45.

going back and forth, rather than the focus on the issues. Thhs might

:10:46.:10:50.

have given some insight into the character of the candidates and that

:10:51.:10:54.

might be useful in terms of making decisions for them. When I look at a

:10:55.:10:59.

map of the US Tore Roundabott election time, it looks likd the

:11:00.:11:03.

East and the west coast votd Democrat and the centre seels to be

:11:04.:11:10.

assessment? It generally is, major assessment? It generally is, major

:11:11.:11:14.

concentration of Democratic voters, concentration of Democratic voters,

:11:15.:11:17.

rural states in the centre, the great Plains, the south of the

:11:18.:11:19.

country, they tend to be more Republican. The result is a set of

:11:20.:11:26.

states that are competitive with the changing trends and demographics and

:11:27.:11:33.

the other ones we will be w`tching. Between 200000 and 300,000 dligible

:11:34.:11:36.

to vote in the election, wh`t difference could be me? Americans

:11:37.:11:41.

living here in the UK, parthcularly the ones that come from somd of

:11:42.:11:45.

these more competitive swing states, they could make a real diffdrence.

:11:46.:11:49.

Historically, overseas parthcipation by voters abroad has been qtite low.

:11:50.:11:55.

It the significant number do take up their right to cast ballots, that

:11:56.:11:59.

could start to make a difference, particularly in those days that are

:12:00.:12:08.

really close. Those states would be? North Carolina, Arizona, Ohho,

:12:09.:12:11.

Georgia. The list was just `s the polls are just from each dax and

:12:12.:12:16.

week to week. But some of those states, they are seen to be battle

:12:17.:12:19.

grounds. Can they really make a difference, those votes, from here?

:12:20.:12:26.

I think so. As in Florida, hn 2 00, were the race was so tight that it

:12:27.:12:31.

forced a recount, well after the election day. Late arriving votes

:12:32.:12:37.

from overseas and absent dedpwater did actually swing the election in

:12:38.:12:41.

that state and overall from Al Gore to George W Bush. Briefly, xou are

:12:47.:12:52.

to go and I will send them hn by e-mail shortly. Thank you for that.

:12:53.:12:53.

Thank you. Now more of today's

:12:54.:12:54.

stories with Sally Taylor. Feelings were found any casds of its

:12:55.:13:42.

drivers. One of those is a piano teacher from Hampshire who has said

:13:43.:13:47.

that Havana. Premature retirement. Laura Trant has been to metdr. It

:13:48.:13:53.

was a routine eye test that shows Francis Lee had an undiagnosed mini

:13:54.:13:57.

stroke. She had no idea it had happened. She was not allowdd to

:13:58.:14:00.

drive for one year. She was then forced off of the road for two more

:14:01.:14:06.

years because of confusion with the DVLA. I should have been told by the

:14:07.:14:11.

DVLA that my case could be treated as an exception Alan Tate and this

:14:12.:14:13.

is something behalf have within is something behalf have within

:14:14.:14:19.

their remit. They did not tdll me. I found out completely by chance,

:14:20.:14:23.

completely by chance. If I had not found that out, I would be driving

:14:24.:14:27.

today. Without her car, she had no choice but to retire from hdr job as

:14:28.:14:33.

a piano teacher. Angry, bec`use I felt I was a little boy shotting as

:14:34.:14:37.

loud as I could for justice and no one was listening. I knew, just me

:14:38.:14:43.

that this was wrong. Legal fees and other costs meant Francis spent

:14:44.:14:48.

?30,000 getting back on the road. That money has now been reilbursed.

:14:49.:14:53.

The parliamentary and health service Ombudsman found major feelings and

:14:54.:14:58.

eight drivers' cases. Criticisms in the report I directed at thd medical

:14:59.:15:04.

group of the drivers. Part of the DVLA which considers both drivers

:15:05.:15:08.

with a medical condition ard set to die. They have accepted that they

:15:09.:15:10.

have made mistakes but they have said they are not willing to make

:15:11.:15:13.

sure that people know about those mistakes so others who could be

:15:14.:15:18.

affected can complain and do something had gone wrong and their

:15:19.:15:21.

case, it could be put right. That is a denial of justice for people who

:15:22.:15:25.

could have lost their livelhhood. The DVLA has apologise for how it

:15:26.:15:28.

handled the cases but it makes the point that the eight cases date back

:15:29.:15:33.

to 2009 and it says that since then, the vast majority of the 4 lillion

:15:34.:15:37.

cases it has handled have bden dealt with swiftly and correctly. It also

:15:38.:15:41.

says improvements have been made that are more members of st`ff and

:15:42.:15:46.

there is now and my system, where drivers can give details of medical

:15:47.:15:51.

conditions. It took nine ye`rs to get Francis's is resolved. She is

:15:52.:15:57.

now back on the road with a new lease of life.

:15:58.:16:02.

On two spot. Last night we were previewing it, tonight it is

:16:03.:16:04.

happening, it is happening right now. The moment that Saints fans

:16:05.:16:09.

have been looking for in Milan. The anticipation. Since the tickets were

:16:10.:16:15.

released. Yes, so far, it is evil- zero. Holding their own, we hope.

:16:16.:16:22.

This evening around 7000 Sotthampton fans are on the edge of thehr seats

:16:23.:16:27.

at the San Siro Stadium. Sahnts take on Inter Milan and Europa Ldague.

:16:28.:16:30.

The match is just coming up to half-time. Our sports editor Tony

:16:31.:16:36.

Husband is there. Saints holding their own against the three,time

:16:37.:16:41.

champions big winners at thd moment? Yes, indeed. From behind me I can

:16:42.:16:45.

hear the half-time whistle has just gone. It is evil- zero in the San

:16:46.:16:50.

Siro. More than holding thehr own. Not staying on the edge of their

:16:51.:16:55.

seats, the fans are out of their seats. What a first half from

:16:56.:17:00.

Southampton, the hatful of chances, Jay Rodriguez guilty of missing a

:17:01.:17:07.

few. James Ward-Prowse put one over the top. Martina Purdy one `cross

:17:08.:17:10.

the face of goal. No one cotld get on the end of it. The 7000 fans have

:17:11.:17:13.

been roaring them all almost sucking the ball into the net. Can they

:17:14.:17:17.

break the deadlock in the sdcond half? What a day we have had, let me

:17:18.:17:23.

rewind the clock and look b`ck at some of the scenes from Mil`n

:17:24.:17:27.

earlier today. 7000 fans tr`velling to northern Italy, many of them on

:17:28.:17:32.

flights that that the south and all airports across the country earlier

:17:33.:17:36.

this morning. They have been in great spirits and enjoying their

:17:37.:17:38.

day. They came here tonight and they have seen their side to thel proud.

:17:39.:17:43.

I have got the stories of three fans in particular Ruby will heal from

:17:44.:17:46.

which tells you just how far Saints supporters have come. 19 hotrs,

:17:47.:17:53.

door-to-door through Qatar from Singapore. I just could not miss

:17:54.:17:57.

this after supporting them for God knows how many years, not bding able

:17:58.:18:03.

to see them very often, so ` big event. It must feel very spdcial

:18:04.:18:07.

today. Very special, and wandering around the San Siro Elder,

:18:08.:18:11.

fantastic. I have never been away with since before, Milan is an

:18:12.:18:16.

amazing and lovely place to be, great experience. What a first trip

:18:17.:18:21.

away, how did you come up whth that? I have lived in Southampton for

:18:22.:18:25.

seven years and I have started following the team and going to warm

:18:26.:18:28.

games then I thought let us go to Europe, it has been really good

:18:29.:18:34.

Full-on from Florence, norm`lly I worked on a Thursday night `nd I

:18:35.:18:37.

would not normally be able to come to the game but my company have

:18:38.:18:41.

challenged me to do 1503 te`ts on Twitter and helping -- asking Saints

:18:42.:18:49.

fans to help out. I am requesting people who love to

:18:50.:18:52.

go and what Southampton plaxed to comment. If I can get 1500 re-tweets

:18:53.:18:58.

on this video, they will move the Thursday night to the Fridax night.

:18:59.:19:03.

That would make me very happy. Within eight days we reach the

:19:04.:19:08.

target. Thank you to everyone. Here we are in Milan. I am sure H pressed

:19:09.:19:13.

the re-tweet Button! Are yot looking forward to tonight? Amazing. I never

:19:14.:19:18.

thought that we would watch Saints away in Europe for a long thme,

:19:19.:19:23.

especially other thing that happened six or seven years ago. The fact

:19:24.:19:30.

that we are is outstanding. Confirmation then, half-timd at the

:19:31.:19:35.

San Siro in the group game, Southampton holding Inter Mhlan at

:19:36.:19:38.

the moment and more than holding their own. The home side had a few

:19:39.:19:41.

opportunities before the brdak, they are not out of it but have not won

:19:42.:19:45.

yet in this competition. Sotthampton have a victory and a draw so far. If

:19:46.:19:59.

they can get a victory this evening that it -- they would take ` huge

:20:00.:20:03.

step towards qualifying out of the group and this competition. Live

:20:04.:20:06.

commentary on BBC five live. We will have reaction from the Saints camp

:20:07.:20:07.
