Hello and welcome to South Today. been saved if the police

In tonight's programme: The downgrade of maternity services

:00:00.:00:00.

at Banbury's Horton Hospital is extended as the NHS

:00:07.:00:10.

in Oxfordshire discusses ?200 million of savings.

:00:11.:00:14.

Can a new approach to recruitment engender gender equality

:00:15.:00:20.

Reading's methane-fuelled buses make their debut.

:00:21.:00:40.

It's been announced the downgrade of maternity services

:00:41.:00:43.

at the Horton Hospital in Banbury is being extended again

:00:44.:00:46.

The move, made on safety grounds, sparked anger

:00:47.:00:52.

Oxford University Hospitals Trust said it was down to a shortage

:00:53.:00:57.

of doctors, and only five out of nine doctors are likely to be

:00:58.:01:01.

The downgrade means that expectant mothers needing doctors at present

:01:02.:01:08.

have to travel to the John Radcliffe Hospital.

:01:09.:01:10.

Well, the extended travel time has led to the MP for Banbury,

:01:11.:01:13.

Victoria Prentis, urging patients to log their journey

:01:14.:01:15.

Chrissy Ansell from Banbury makes the 60-mile round trip

:01:16.:01:21.

to the John Radcliffe each week in order to visit her family.

:01:22.:01:27.

Talk me through the way that we are going to go

:01:28.:01:33.

I think it's best if we go on the A4260 because the motorway

:01:34.:01:40.

is 12 miles longer but also it gets chock-a-block with

:01:41.:01:44.

You were saying that the Horton was somewhere you had to use

:01:45.:01:52.

It was just before Christmas and I had the unfortunate accident

:01:53.:02:01.

where I fell out of the loft, and the loft ladder went in my leg,

:02:02.:02:05.

which opened pretty badly and was bleeding profusely.

:02:06.:02:09.

So we're just coming through Adderbury now.

:02:10.:02:17.

She's had quite a lot to say on this matter and she wants people

:02:18.:02:24.

I hope to be able to feed this into the consultation is real evidence

:02:25.:02:40.

about what time it takes people to get the better appointment rather

:02:41.:02:44.

than taking things of Google maps. The journey times are an important

:02:45.:02:50.

factor. Although the population in Banbury has grown, medical sciences

:02:51.:02:56.

is not fast, people are getting older, but that distance has not

:02:57.:03:03.

changed. We are just leaving Dennington now. We had been driving

:03:04.:03:10.

for just over 20 minutes. We are going to the John Radcliffe. How

:03:11.:03:13.

long do you expect the rest of this journey to take? I would say another

:03:14.:03:21.

25 minutes minimum. If I was sat here is one of the decision-makers,

:03:22.:03:28.

what would you say to me? I would say to think very carefully about

:03:29.:03:34.

what you are doing. This is people's lives here. There are other places

:03:35.:03:39.

you could cost cost of it as costs you're talking about. We are just

:03:40.:03:45.

coming into the John Radcliffe now. It is almost exactly 50 minutes

:03:46.:03:48.

since we lived your home in Banbury. It triggers the same time back and

:03:49.:03:52.

we could have gone to the Horton ten times. Now we have struggled to find

:03:53.:03:58.

a parking space. That is right and it can take as much as an hour, if

:03:59.:04:00.

not bit more. Well, tonight, details have been

:04:01.:04:04.

released suggesting more services are to be moved

:04:05.:04:06.

from the Horton Hospital to the JR. ?200 million of savings has to be

:04:07.:04:08.

found by the county's clinical The proposals will now

:04:09.:04:11.

be put to the public. Katharine DaCosta has been

:04:12.:04:15.

looking at the details. A short time ago, I asked

:04:16.:04:16.

her what more we know. Well, it seems that the idea's

:04:17.:04:19.

to centralise more services to the John Radcliffe Hospital in

:04:20.:04:22.

Oxford. Now, that's not going to be good

:04:23.:04:25.

news for people campaigning to keep Health bosses stress

:04:26.:04:29.

they are investing in the Horton. It'll become a centre

:04:30.:04:34.

for diagnostics and outpatient appointments so that patients can be

:04:35.:04:37.

seen and treated closer to home. Under the plans, though,

:04:38.:04:41.

the most seriously ill patients Maternity services may be

:04:42.:04:44.

permanently downgraded due Acute stroke services could also

:04:45.:04:50.

transfer to Oxford to make it a large specialist unit

:04:51.:04:56.

for the whole region. Meanwhile, the overall strategy

:04:57.:04:59.

is to keep people out of hospital Another 48 are

:05:00.:05:02.

earmarked for closure. We've only seen these proposals,

:05:03.:05:09.

we've only had them for a matter of hours, but what reaction

:05:10.:05:12.

has there been? Well, some of the concerns

:05:13.:05:15.

are that this consultation's in two parts and that,

:05:16.:05:17.

actually, many of the Some feel the sheer size of it

:05:18.:05:19.

will put many people off engaging Healthwatch Oxfordshire feel

:05:20.:05:28.

many of the changes have already started to be put in place before

:05:29.:05:33.

the public's even been consulted. They've already closed down beds

:05:34.:05:38.

in the JR and they've closed They've done that before

:05:39.:05:41.

the consultation starts, I mean, if there is a big swell

:05:42.:05:50.

of public opinion against it, is it actually going

:05:51.:05:58.

to make any difference? The second phase is expected

:05:59.:06:02.

to start in May - looking at A, children's services and community

:06:03.:06:05.

hospitals - with the fear that, to make more savings,

more community hospitals may We'll have more reaction and more

:06:13.:06:17.

thank you very much. Investigations are continuing

after a man in his 60s died when a light aircraft

:06:23.:06:24.

crashed in Oxfordshire. Emergency services were called

:06:25.:06:26.

to the Aston Rowant Nature Reserve The aeroplane had taken off

:06:27.:06:28.

from Turweston Aerodrome There was thick fog

:06:29.:06:33.

in the area at the time. Police in Milton Keynes are trying

:06:34.:06:38.

to trace a mother who's been missing since she dropped her daughter off

:06:39.:06:41.

at school on Friday morning. Sherena Begum, who's 29, was last

:06:42.:06:44.

seen in Helford Place in Fishermead. She'd walked to school

:06:45.:06:49.

with her daughter in heavy snow. She was wearing a blue dress

:06:50.:06:52.

and a brown robe-like jumper. 14 council-run day care centres

:06:53.:06:57.

for elderly and disabled people have been recommended

:06:58.:07:01.

for closure in Oxfordshire. The county council is proposing

:07:02.:07:04.

the closures in order Under the plans, funding

:07:05.:07:06.

for privately-run services would also be cut by hundreds

of thousands of pounds but more If anyone were to say

:07:12.:07:15.

that it is most definitely a long-term solution,

:07:16.:07:21.

we are not perhaps being realistic, but what we are doing is,

:07:22.:07:25.

as of today, making sure that the service we have

:07:26.:07:28.

in Oxfordshire is giving the Oxfordshire people

:07:29.:07:30.

what they need. The UK Atomic Energy Authority

:07:31.:07:34.

based in Culham is hoping to increase gender equality

:07:35.:07:36.

with a new recruitment process. Those hiring people wouldn't see

:07:37.:07:40.

names at the shortlist stage to try and stop unconscious

:07:41.:07:44.

bias against women. It's part of measures being tried

at Culham to increase the number At Culham's nuclear fusion

:07:59.:08:02.

women into science, Currently, 10% of engineers and 15%

:08:03.:08:04.

of scientists here are women. The UK Atomic Energy Authority says

:08:05.:08:11.

it's an imbalance they're What needs to change is the culture

- and for it to become normal, for it to become a nonevent that

you are a woman in You're just a scientist,

:08:21.:08:23.

you're an engineer, you're not a female scientist

:08:24.:08:26.

or a female engineer. Alex Davis is a process

engineer at Culham. She thinks women are being put

:08:30.:08:32.

off jobs in science You give boys Lego and you give

:08:33.:08:35.

girls dolls and make-up and, suddenly, you've raised an entire

generation of people who are conditioned to think,

:08:43.:08:44.

these are my hobbies, these are my interests,

:08:45.:08:47.

these are what I want The UK Atomic Energy Authority has

:08:48.:08:49.

now signed up to a gender equality accreditation scheme

:08:50.:08:55.

to try to attract more women into It wants to make its labs

:08:56.:08:58.

more female-friendly. Some of the tangible things that

:08:59.:09:04.

you can do are gender-blind recruitment practices

:09:05.:09:07.

at the short listing stage. This is something that's been

:09:08.:09:11.

in the news recently. Family-friendly working

:09:12.:09:14.

policies, flexible working. A lack of female scientists

:09:15.:09:18.

and engineers is not just a problem at Culham Science Centre -

:09:19.:09:21.

it's happening across the country. But it's hoped measures being tried

:09:22.:09:25.

out here could encourage more women to embark on careers

:09:26.:09:28.

in this industry. The new town of Milton Keynes

is celebrating its 50th There'll be celebrations throughout

the city has been successful. 50 years on, it's now one

:10:51.:10:56.

of the fastest-growing towns in the country,

home to more than 10,000 businesses, a place where you'll find sport,

innovation, leisure. But, with its population expected

:11:04.:11:06.

to rise to more than 300,000 in the next ten years,

this town, with ambitions to become a city, faces challenges -

on the River Thames in Henley. Emergency services helped free

to recover the car. The driver was described as a bit

shocked by a passerby. Now more of today's

:11:39.:11:44.

stories with Sally Taylor. After a soggy start of the week, the

:11:45.:12:06.

forecast is mainly settled. Sunny spells at time, a cold spell and

:12:07.:12:09.

mainly dry. A high-tech airborne radar system

:12:10.:12:12.

that'll be the eyes and ears of the Navy's new Portsmouth based

aircraft carriers has finally got The way decisions about

:12:15.:12:17.

the Crowsnest radar have been made has come in for criticism

:12:18.:12:25.

from the National Audit Office. But today in Portsmouth

:12:26.:12:28.

the government announced the ?269 million project

:12:29.:12:30.

is going ahead, helping to secure The Royal Navy's big new aircraft

:12:31.:12:47.

carriers will need plenty of protection. With radar equipment on

board and in the sky providing early warning of incoming threats. Now the

:12:54.:12:56.

Ministry of Defence is going ahead with the project to fit the latest

:12:57.:13:02.

Crowsnest radar system to Merlin helicopters like these. Looks over

:13:03.:13:06.

the horizon, looks out long-distance, looks high and back

:13:07.:13:12.

covers the gaps. It's a big contract, ?269 million. The

:13:13.:13:15.

Government had faced strong criticism over delays to the

:13:16.:13:20.

project, but today on board HMS dragon in Portsmouth, the message

:13:21.:13:24.

from the minister was positive. Obviously really important to get

:13:25.:13:28.

these things right and it's a really good news announcement today. It's

:13:29.:13:31.

going to sustain almost 200 jobs here in the South. But you would

:13:32.:13:36.

accept that if ministers had got to move on in terms of the positive

:13:37.:13:41.

decision-making, we could have been here a lot earlier? Innovation is

:13:42.:13:45.

really important and we do sometimes have to make adjustments during the

:13:46.:13:49.

procurement process to make sure we have the right cutting edge

:13:50.:13:51.

capability. The Navy is confident the new system will be up and

:13:52.:13:55.

running, and with crews trained by the time the first the aircraft

:13:56.:14:03.

carrier becomes operational in 2020. We accelerated the programme to meet

:14:04.:14:06.

those dates. At the moment we are looking slightly ahead of the

:14:07.:14:10.

carrier requirements so it's looking good. The contract is a boost for

:14:11.:14:16.

industry. It will secure 80 posts in Crawley and another 60 here in have

:14:17.:14:21.

and where they are using the latest technology to make the new system is

:14:22.:14:26.

easy to use as possible. -- in Havant. Altogether 30 of the Navy's

:14:27.:14:35.

Merlin helicopters will be modified to carry the new Crowsnest radar.

:14:36.:14:40.

The money's good and the hours reasonable.

:14:41.:14:43.

Southern Railway, which is enduring months of strikes, has launched

:14:44.:14:46.

It comes amid a new row about whether the drivers' union has

:14:47.:14:55.

changed its attitude to what's called Driver Only Operation.

:14:56.:14:57.

Our Transport Correspondent Paul Clifton is here.

:14:58.:15:00.

Well, Sally, let's see what's on offer.

:15:01.:15:12.

Govia Thameslink Railway, Southern's parent company,

:15:13.:15:14.

wants maintain a constant pool of 200 drivers in training.

:15:15.:15:17.

That's for a four-day week, doing 35 hours.

:15:18.:15:20.

And most drivers work a fifth day as voluntary overtime,

:15:21.:15:23.

Most train operators rely on that overtime.

:15:24.:15:27.

Drivers earn more, and companies can employ fewer people,

:15:28.:15:31.

But an overtime ban by the drivers' union is biting hard on Southern.

:15:32.:15:39.

Even on days with no strike, like today, it means around one

:15:40.:15:42.

Now, let me remind you of something the drivers'

:15:43.:15:50.

Our view is that in the increasingly longer trains in particular, we've

:15:51.:16:06.

got 1100 people, and nobody on the train to serve the critical role to

:16:07.:16:08.

say it is unsafe. Rail magazine has uncovered

:16:09.:16:10.

a letter, signed by Mick Whelan, in which he agrees to run precisely

:16:11.:16:12.

that sort of train. Aslef agrees to drive and operate 12

:16:13.:16:15.

car DOO trains, it says. The newest, longest trains,

:16:16.:16:19.

carrying the most people, of the type used on Southern

:16:20.:16:21.

and Gatwick Express. Aslef says it has opposed

:16:22.:16:25.

driver-only operation for 15 years. Yet six years ago, here

:16:26.:16:30.

it is signing up to more of it, The union says it was

:16:31.:16:34.

honouring an extension But clearly here it was accepting

:16:35.:16:41.

drivers should do what it now calls a fundamentally unsafe

:16:42.:16:47.

way of working. Plans to build the Reading section

:16:48.:16:56.

of a new cross-Berkshire cycle route The route will eventually stretch

:16:57.:16:58.

from Newbury to Ascot. The first section along Bath Road

:16:59.:17:02.

will cost 450 thousand pounds and should join up

:17:03.:17:04.

existing cycle lanes. But some campaigners say it's been

:17:05.:17:06.

a long time coming and parts Having one big route will hopefully

:17:07.:17:27.

join all those cycle lanes into a cycle network and that's what

:17:28.:17:29.

cyclists really need because you're not just travelling down one road

:17:30.:17:33.

from most journeys, you're going to be travelling halfway across town

:17:34.:17:37.

and you need a route that will take you some distance.

:17:38.:17:39.

A brand new fleet of environmentally friendly buses are due to start

:17:40.:17:42.

running on the streets of Reading this week.

:17:43.:17:44.

Reading Buses have bought five of them at a cost of a quarter

:17:45.:17:47.

As well as having free 4G wifi, they've also got mobile

:17:48.:17:51.

But the new EURO 4 buses aren't fuelled by petrol or diesel

:17:52.:17:56.

Edward Sault has been to take a look.

:17:57.:18:04.

The regal welcome for Redding's new royal bosses but this one is

:18:05.:18:11.

slightly different, and Daisy the cow might be a bit of a giveaway as

:18:12.:18:20.

to why. This is the world's first gas double-decker bus, powered by a

:18:21.:18:24.

sustainable form of the gas fuel, and the source comes from cow waste,

:18:25.:18:28.

their bedding, food stock and other waste products as well. And that was

:18:29.:18:34.

a pivotal reason why the bus company decided to buy five of these at a

:18:35.:18:40.

quarter of ?1 million each. We have some of the poorest air quality in

:18:41.:18:44.

the South in parts of the borough. More people come into Redding every

:18:45.:18:49.

day by bus and therefore it is important that Redding buses was in

:18:50.:18:56.

the forefront of using the greenest and cleanest ones available. It also

:18:57.:19:00.

has some devices you may have not seen in the past such as free 4G

:19:01.:19:09.

Wi-Fi and coat hooks. It's also got a mobile phone charger, you simply

:19:10.:19:12.

take it out of its case, plug it into your phone and leave it to

:19:13.:19:22.

charge whilst you are on the go. It's got some great things on there

:19:23.:19:25.

and it's exciting that it is environmentally friendly and will be

:19:26.:19:30.

extended to other routes. We have got to do something useful with cow

:19:31.:19:39.

waste. These buses will be serving route 33, turning the spotlight onto

:19:40.:19:41.

a Greenaway of travelling. Straight on to sport and Tony

:19:42.:19:51.

husband is here. I got a lot of tweets over the weekend saying to

:19:52.:19:53.

look out for Sam Sunderland. Sam Sunderland broke his ankles,

:19:54.:20:02.

knees and pelvis in a motorbike 11 years later his determination

:20:03.:20:05.

to reach the top has been rewarded. He's become the first Briton to win

:20:06.:20:09.

the Dakar rally in any category Formerly known as the Paris Dakar

:20:10.:20:12.

rally, this staging was held in South America

:20:13.:20:14.

and ran through Paraguay. Sunderland, from Poole,

:20:15.:20:17.

but now mainly based in Dubai had led for his team KTM since stage

:20:18.:20:22.

five of 12. It was an emotional moment

:20:23.:20:24.

as he crossed the line. It feels incredible. I'm lost for

:20:25.:20:42.

words. In the last couple of moments, the emotion started to kick

:20:43.:20:46.

in, and it was just a bit overwhelming. It's amazing. I've had

:20:47.:20:51.

an incredible week, and really thank you to the team and organisers. It's

:20:52.:20:53.

been a really hard rally, even with been a really hard rally, even with

:20:54.:21:10.

and I'm really drained, physically weather, it was still one

:21:11.:21:10.

and emotionally but I'm so happy and and emotionally but I'm so happy and

:21:11.:21:11.

it is a dream come true for me. Loads of people across Hampshire and

:21:12.:21:14.

Dorset very proud of him, congratulations.

Alex Thomson has set yet another record in the Vendee Globe single

:21:17.:21:19.

The Gosport sailor covered more than 600 miles in 24 hours faster

:21:20.:21:23.

than has ever been done before, as he continues to try and catch

:21:24.:21:26.

Thomson's damaged bat Hugo Boss has closed the gap tonight

:21:27.:21:32.

on Banque Populaire to 85 miles, and they're about to turn due east

:21:33.:21:35.

Thomson is attempting to become the first Briton ever to win

:21:36.:21:42.

the race known as the Everest of the seas, a two and half

:21:43.:21:45.

month challenge against the prevailing winds and tides.

:21:46.:21:49.

Earlier today we had this update as he attempts to catch pre-race

:21:50.:21:52.

It's about trying to get as close to our man as possible and I'm

:21:53.:22:02.

struggling a little bit at the moment, not catching him as much as

:22:03.:22:06.

I would like. I'm struggling a little bit with the steering. I have

:22:07.:22:10.

some play in the steering system which basically means when I get to

:22:11.:22:16.

high speeds, the boat becomes a little bit uncontrollable. So I've

:22:17.:22:21.

had a few very near accidental jibes. It is still all to play for.

:22:22.:22:26.

We will have to see what happens but one thing you can count on, I'm

:22:27.:22:30.

going to fight until the end. We are with you, Alex, all the way until

:22:31.:22:33.

the end. Southampton football manager

:22:34.:22:35.

Claude Puel described his side's loss at Burnley this

:22:36.:22:37.

weekend as incredible. Southampton failed to take a string

:22:38.:22:38.

of chances and paid the price when Joey Barton's free kick beat

:22:39.:22:41.

Fraser Forster 12 minutes from time. It was Southampton's fourth

:22:42.:22:44.

consecutive Premier League defeat and they're down to 13th

:22:45.:22:46.

in the table. Here's the key headlines from

:22:47.:22:49.

the rest of the weekend's football. Town Trail from this second-half

:22:50.:23:08.

volley. But new signings were to play their part. After joining for a

:23:09.:23:16.

third loan spell, bed grabbed when put his shot on level terms. Both

:23:17.:23:24.

sides pressed hard for the winner. James Henry denied the post. Charlie

:23:25.:23:33.

Cockett's cross picked out Kasim, and the Iraq International found the

:23:34.:23:41.

net. A first league win in seven. Oxford United arrived at Wimbledon

:23:42.:23:46.

unbeaten in 2017. They looked on course for that record to continue.

:23:47.:23:52.

The dons responded in style. Dean Parrott smashed in an equaliser of

:23:53.:23:56.

the bar and turned provider for the winner. His cross was met by the

:23:57.:24:02.

head of Sean Kelly and United's unblemished start to the year.

:24:03.:24:09.

who's celebrating his 100th birthday today.

:24:10.:24:11.

This is Bill Lucas, from Cowfold in West Sussex.

:24:12.:24:13.

He's in the striped top, running in the 5,000 metres

:24:14.:24:14.

He didn't make the final though, which he blames

:24:15.:24:20.

That's because he'd been due to run in 1940 and '44,

:24:21.:24:27.

but the Games were cancelled and he was called up to the RAF.

:24:28.:24:32.

He said the key to a long life is a whiskey every evening. We have the

:24:33.:24:40.

weather for the week ahead. Yes, a little bit cold at times through the

:24:41.:24:44.

course of the week with perhaps a little bit of frost.

:24:45.:24:47.

Sue Cheney captured the grey conditions whilst walking her dog

Lynne Harvey took this picture of a squirrel

:24:53.:24:54.

And Chris Proudfoot took this picture of the low tide

:24:55.:24:57.

Quite a grey day with outbreaks of rain at times but the weather ahead

:24:58.:25:06.

is on improving picture. It should be mainly dry through most of this

:25:07.:25:10.

week with temperatures struggling on Sundays. High pressure remains in

:25:11.:25:15.

charge of the weather, it should be mainly dry. The possibility of some

:25:16.:25:19.

frost overnight tonight and also on Wednesday morning. We may have a

:25:20.:25:26.

frost first thing tomorrow, milder temperatures for western parts and

:25:27.:25:31.

we are looking at loads of freezing. A cloudy start to western areas

:25:32.:25:35.

tomorrow but the cloud will start to be nibbled away by the sunshine.

:25:36.:25:39.

Sunny spells making an appearance, more cloud through the latter part

:25:40.:25:45.

of the afternoon. Otherwise it is going to be a lovely, sunny day with

:25:46.:25:49.

temperatures reaching as high as seven Celsius so in some parts it

:25:50.:25:55.

will feel chilly. More so overnight and under the clear skies the

:25:56.:26:00.

temperatures will plunge to minus forced Celsius in the countryside.

:26:01.:26:04.

Light winds to start Wednesday, and there will be a frost. In some

:26:05.:26:15.

places only reaching a high temperature of four Celsius. More

:26:16.:26:17.

cloud in general on Thursday, we will have this weather front across

:26:18.:26:21.

the country. High pressure still dominating the weather through much

:26:22.:26:25.

of the week. Thursday, temperatures will reach around seven Celsius, and

:26:26.:26:33.

a similar scenario also on Friday. We are expecting a good deal of

:26:34.:26:37.

cloud but Thursday and Friday should be mainly dry. Where the cloud is

:26:38.:26:41.

thickest we should have the odd spot of drizzle. Temperatures on Friday

:26:42.:26:47.

reaching age Celsius, so more mild than tomorrow and Wednesday. High

:26:48.:26:52.

pressure remains in charge of our weather, it should stay mainly dry

:26:53.:26:58.

at the weekend, staying generally cloudy.

:26:59.:27:04.

Looking at the weather, Alex Thompson the Gosport sailor is doing

:27:05.:27:10.

something like 30 knots, we should look at the weather forecast for him

:27:11.:27:14.

to see what will happen. And we heard him talking there, dramatic

:27:15.:27:20.

stuff and the whole interview is on our Facebook page. That's it from

:27:21.:27:23.

us, more tomorrow. Good night.
