A week after the blast, 13 households don't have

We talk to the driver who proved some parking spaces

Emergency services have spent the weekend continuing

:00:31.:00:48.

their investigations into the cause of an explosion and fire

:00:49.:00:51.

Human remains were discovered at the site in Osney Mead

:00:52.:00:55.

on Saturday, but a post-mortem examination was inconclusive.

:00:56.:00:56.

Tenants at 13 properties on Gibbs Crescent are still waiting

:00:57.:00:59.

to hear where they'll be housed long term.

:01:00.:01:04.

Katharine Da Costa has been to meet one woman made homeless.

:01:05.:01:08.

This is currently home for Habiba Gudal.

:01:09.:01:12.

Nearly a week on from the explosion and fire that ripped

:01:13.:01:14.

through her block of flats on Gibbs Crescent in Oxford,

:01:15.:01:17.

she still has nightmares about what happened,

:01:18.:01:19.

and hasn't been allowed back to get her possessions.

:01:20.:01:36.

I am devastated and I cannot sleep at night. I have every five seconds

for all those affected. It is clearly a hugely shocking

incident to happen right And for residents to

:02:07.:02:09.

have their whole lives disrupted in such an abrupt

:02:10.:02:16.

and unexpected way. And I think that we have to give

:02:17.:02:18.

huge praise to our emergency services for responding in such

:02:19.:02:22.

a quick and comprehensive way. Three flats were destroyed

funding to train for Badminton England, based

in the town, has lost its appeal against the decision by UK Sport

:03:57.:04:02.

it's players could win medals in Tokyo.

Their futures betting on the results of the appeal.

:04:31.:04:34.

It is 11:30am and in that building behind me, a June Christy is taking

:04:35.:04:38.

a phone call from UK Sport to find out the result of their appeal. It

:04:39.:04:43.

will have a massive impact on the future of the sport.

:04:44.:04:48.

It was bad news, the appeal had failed.

:04:49.:04:50.

Everyone in Milton Keynes must be frustrated.

:04:51.:04:55.

We are, but we are incredibly resilient and equally determined. It

:04:56.:05:04.

is a big blow. We were looking for ?1.2 million a year to get us to

:05:05.:05:10.

Tokyo. But it is a tough hurdle to overcome. It is not something that

:05:11.:05:14.

will deter our ambition to still deliver medals for Great Britain.

:05:15.:05:19.

Every four years, UK Sport distributes public money in the

:05:20.:05:23.

pursuit of medals. For London, Badminton got ?4.7 million, in Rio

:05:24.:05:28.

it was reduced to ?5.7 million. Which helps when the first Olympic

:05:29.:05:35.

medal in Badminton the 12 years. A few years later, its entire funding

:05:36.:05:38.

was cut. After Rio, we were so positive,

:05:39.:05:43.

there was such a buzz in the centre, Wiwa feeling like Milton Keynes,

:05:44.:05:49.

National Badminton Centre, we will go upwards post-Rio. I feel like it

:05:50.:05:55.

has deflated everyone. Unlike 31 other sports, Badminton

:05:56.:05:58.

will get nothing in the run up to Tokyo. The number of players

:05:59.:06:03.

training here will be cut and staff at headquarters in Milton Keynes

:06:04.:06:06.

have been warned of redundancy. I knew the appeal was imminent, not

:06:07.:06:11.

today. Bad news, unbelievable. They have

:06:12.:06:17.

had the centre in Milton Keynes for a while, it may threaten that.

:06:18.:06:22.

Badminton once more moments like this but these to pick itself up and

to grab a share of an industry that could potentially be worth

billions of pounds. Lift-off of the Falcon 9

of the superpowers, space is more accessible than ever,

and the Government wants the UK The economic benefits of hosting

capable of flying at five times the speed of sound

in the atmosphere, and space flight, the air-breathing sabre rocket

engines will revolutionise travel. London to Sydney

in just a few hours. Space, the final

:08:31.:08:32.

frontier is no more. Sabre could open up a whole

:08:33.:08:35.

world of opportunities. There's been a significant gap

:08:36.:08:37.

between the last big But this potentially is the closest

:08:38.:08:43.

we will get to a whittle jet engine The Government's target

is to see the first launch For a burgeoning and already

very successful space industry worth ?250 million,

:08:54.:08:57.

this is a crucial piece in the jigsaw,

:08:58.:08:58.

and could be in place soon. To be classified as a spaceport,

:08:59.:09:08.

sites will need to be licensed. The Civil Aviation Authority has

:09:09.:09:12.

short-listed Campbelltown, Glasgow Prestwick and Stornoway

:09:13.:09:13.

in Scotland, Newquay in Cornwall It won't need to undergo major works

:09:14.:09:16.

but will have to refuel rockets. The vast majority of take-offs will

:09:17.:09:26.

be horizontal rather than vertical. At first, the commercial spaceports

:09:27.:09:33.

would launch satellites and could also bring zero gravity

:09:34.:09:35.

flights to the UK. Then, ultimately,

:09:36.:09:39.

even space tourism. The opportunities are huge and not

:09:40.:09:44.

even the sky is the limit. The weight of vehicles passing over

:09:45.:09:47.

Marlow Bridge is to be checked, after major problems caused

:09:48.:09:54.

by a 37-tonne lorry. The Grade 1 listed bridge has

:09:55.:09:56.

a three-tonne limit. It had to be closed

:09:57.:09:58.

for two months last autumn Engineers had to assess if any

:09:59.:10:01.

structural damage had been caused. Police are warning drivers of larger

:10:02.:10:04.

vehicles and vans not to attempt to cross the bridge which is only

:10:05.:10:07.

around six feet wide. Now more of today's

:10:08.:10:11.

stories with Sally Taylor. a five-year prison sentence

:10:12.:10:19.

on what are described And also later for a special

:10:20.:10:22.

announcement... I've got some amazing news for all

:10:23.:10:30.

the Southamptoners out there. Well, right here on Saturday,

:10:31.:10:34.

I'll be telling you Frustration is growing in Berkshire

:10:35.:10:38.

over repeated delays to the opening The Shinfield Eastern Relief Road

:10:39.:10:46.

has been dogged by setbacks and should have been

:10:47.:10:51.

finished last summer. Local businesses say it's

:10:52.:10:55.

killing their trade and residents The Swan Inn at Arborfield Cross

:10:56.:10:57.

reopened for business last summer, about the same time the new relief

:10:58.:11:07.

road should have opened. Expected profits are

:11:08.:11:09.

down by at least 15%. We've got quite

:11:10.:11:13.

a good reputation so far, but to try and get

:11:14.:11:15.

here, it's impossible. We lost a lot of trade

:11:16.:11:18.

when they actually stopped work for a week because some

:11:19.:11:21.

of the signs never got moved and basically,

:11:22.:11:24.

it closed down, which no one knew

:11:25.:11:26.

it was supposed to be opened and it wasn't open and it did

:11:27.:11:29.

cost is major problems. When they've got that road closed,

:11:30.:11:33.

the detour is miles, so I tend if I've got to go that

:11:34.:11:38.

way, I don't bother. I'll go to Aldershot

:11:39.:11:44.

or somewhere instead. It's a nightmare here

:11:45.:11:45.

for traffic in the mornings, Melina Harrison says patients

:11:46.:11:48.

at her clinic are often late We're in our 14th year

:11:49.:11:54.

here and I've never known Even getting the business off

:11:55.:12:01.

the ground was easier They're getting so frustrated

:12:02.:12:04.

with the traffic that they actually missed their

:12:05.:12:08.

appointment and, you know, when you're trying to get somebody better

:12:09.:12:11.

and maybe are rehabbing them after they've had disc surgery or

:12:12.:12:14.

something like that, the timing of appointments is really important

:12:15.:12:17.

to their well-being. The road will serve

:12:18.:12:20.

Reading University's huge new Science Park

:12:21.:12:21.

currently under construction. But with so much house

:12:22.:12:25.

building also underway here, it's vital to the local authorities

:12:26.:12:27.

future development plans. In a statement, Wokingham

:12:28.:12:31.

Borough Council told us it shares people's frustration

:12:32.:12:33.

with the delays. It says it doesn't have any control

:12:34.:12:36.

over the contract but it's working with Hochtief

:12:37.:12:39.

and the University of Reading to get

:12:40.:12:42.

the project finished and open. It says though, with

:12:43.:12:45.

complex projects like this, there are always

:12:46.:12:47.

unforeseen problems. Currently issues include water

:12:48.:12:50.

seeping up through the road The contractor Hochtief UK has

:12:51.:12:52.

apologised for the delays and says it's brought in significant extra

:12:53.:12:59.

resources to address the unforeseen challenges

:13:00.:13:02.

it's facing. The road should be open

:13:03.:13:05.

within the next couple of months. Parking and issue but this story is

:13:06.:13:18.

very different. South West Trains is having

:13:19.:13:20.

to repaint part of its car park at Southampton Central station

:13:21.:13:23.

after a driver proved some Jago Lawless got a penalty notice

:13:24.:13:25.

because his car overlapped one And that's when he turned

:13:26.:13:29.

to his tape measure, he proved that the car park

:13:30.:13:35.

doesn't actually meet Keeping between the lines

:13:36.:13:38.

isn't always easy. And it's even harder these days

:13:39.:13:45.

because cars are bigger, but I've been to meet one man who has

:13:46.:13:50.

proved in his case it wasn't It was just over a week ago,

:13:51.:13:53.

46-year-old Jago Lawless was issued a penalty notice because his car

:13:54.:13:59.

just overlapped one of the spaces at

:14:00.:14:02.

Southampton Central Station. My front wheel, where I had pitched

:14:03.:14:05.

the front of the car over so I could actually get out

:14:06.:14:09.

of the door, the front of the car had moved over an inch,

:14:10.:14:12.

two inches over the line. But he felt something wasn't right

:14:13.:14:15.

and as a naval architect by day, who reviews detailed

:14:16.:14:19.

measurements, he took out his own measuring tape to find out

:14:20.:14:22.

what was going wrong. When I first measured the entrance

:14:23.:14:29.

into the car park bay, But because they have

:14:30.:14:32.

angled parking bay over, the parallel with between

:14:33.:14:35.

the lines is actually only 1.978 metres wide which is too small

:14:36.:14:38.

for the After he highlighted

:14:39.:14:40.

the issue to South West South West trains says the car park

:14:41.:14:56.

was painted out before the Government advisers came in and the

:14:57.:14:59.

fee was withdrawn. But it appears small

:15:00.:15:01.

parking spaces isn't In general, all parking spaces

:15:02.:15:03.

are way too small for today's cars. My personal opinion

:15:04.:15:07.

is that I have two children with disabilities

:15:08.:15:09.

and that's even worse because if you don't qualify for a blue badge,

:15:10.:15:12.

you're forced to park I find that parking spaces are a bit

:15:13.:15:14.

too small because whenever I go out with my fiancee,

:15:15.:15:18.

he invariably has to let me out beforehand otherwise I can't open

:15:19.:15:21.

the door properly and squeeze out. Jago tells me he's happy

:15:22.:15:26.

that the company is taking positive steps to widen the spaces and

:15:27.:15:29.

I'm sure that will be thankful that one man

:15:30.:15:38.

really had it taped. Southampton's Craig David has

:15:39.:15:44.

announced he's to play a one-off gig The singer shot to fame

:15:45.:15:47.

as a teenager at the end of the '90s after growing up

:15:48.:15:51.

on a Southampton council estate. He's currently enjoying

:15:52.:15:54.

a spectacular career comeback, with a number one album,

:15:55.:15:57.

and a nomination as best solo male # I feel nothing like this, like

:15:58.:16:13.

this # I have felt nothing like this,

:16:14.:16:18.

like this... This is what is taking Craig David back to the top. 16

:16:19.:16:22.

years since his first album went to number one, he would did it again

:16:23.:16:27.

stopped on the 1st of September, he will play for founds new and old at

:16:28.:16:31.

the Ageas Bowl. The generation think of people who are now discovering my

:16:32.:16:38.

music who would have only followed my last album. The were kids who

:16:39.:16:43.

only just found out about my music. Calling me a new kid! I loved the

:16:44.:16:47.

new kid thing, I will run with that. And then there was a generation who

:16:48.:16:52.

grew up with my stuff from back in 1999. Last year, things really took

:16:53.:16:56.

off again for Craig David. He had a residency and I be there with his DJ

:17:01.:17:04.

people Festival. But the date at the Ageas Bowl will be his first

:17:05.:17:08.

headline show in his home city. You can take the boy out of Southampton

:17:09.:17:11.

but you can't take Southampton at the boy and it's true. Wherever I

:17:12.:17:15.

go, as soon as I come back down the avenue, I feel like I'm home and the

:17:16.:17:20.

crowd responds in that way and any shows that I've done here, either at

:17:21.:17:24.

the Guildhall or at Common People, I could feel that there was an

:17:25.:17:29.

ownership of coming from here and we've got your back. A source on his

:17:30.:17:34.

ties with home that this afternoon, Craig took the time along with his

:17:35.:17:39.

manager to talk to and perform for students at the city's Solent

:17:40.:17:47.

University. When you meet your favourite artist, you kind of get

:17:48.:17:50.

disappointed but I don't feel like that. I was like, yeah, man! That

:17:51.:17:56.

was exciting. To see an idle but is performing five metres from you,

:17:57.:18:02.

it's amazing. Craig David's story is about talent and staying power.

:18:03.:18:05.

Through it all, he has never forgotten his roots. Tickets for his

:18:06.:18:08.

Southampton concert go on general sale this Friday.

:18:09.:18:17.

I like that line, talent and staying power. We know all about that, don't

:18:18.:18:22.

we? I met Craig before the FA Cup final

:18:23.:18:27.

in 2003 and I'm still here! I could be on stage with him. Big

:18:28.:18:30.

Southampton fan and we will hear his spots about that EFL Cup final which

:18:31.:18:33.

is going to dominate the week, really. Later in the week though, so

:18:34.:18:39.

as was his concert, he was keen to talk about saints. Football to start

:18:40.:18:40.

with as well tonight. The two horse race at the top

:18:41.:18:41.

of the Championship saw Brighton leap above Newcastle and back

:18:42.:18:44.

into top spot, although could return to the top if they beat

:18:45.:18:46.

Aston Villa tonight. A double from Sam Baldock

:18:47.:18:50.

in the second half at Oakwell was enough to hand Albion their 20th

:18:51.:18:53.

win of the campaign, Reading on Saturday,

:18:54.:18:58.

then Newcastle a week tomorrow. Meanwhile with no Premier League

:18:59.:19:07.

action this weekend, Good luck to Sutton United

:19:08.:19:10.

and their former Eastleigh boss Paul Doswell, the Surrey club take

on Arsenal tonight live on BBC One. Oxford United's cup dreams ended

:19:17.:19:21.

on Saturday and we start Three and a half thousand Oxford

:19:22.:19:35.

fans were in the north-east aiming for a giant-killing at the home of

:19:36.:19:39.

Premier League opposition. For the first hour, that seemed highly

:19:40.:19:41.

unlikely after Stewart Downing was bundled over in the box, Grant

:19:42.:19:47.

Leadbeater scored from the box. United had been unable to weather

:19:48.:19:53.

the early storm and it got worse. Acrobatics put Middlesbrough two up

:19:54.:19:56.

before the break. But it was far from over. Chris Maguire placed this

:19:57.:20:00.

free kick perfectly to pull a goal back just after the hour mark. The

:20:01.:20:06.

momentum of that goal was ensemble. Within 60 seconds, they swept

:20:07.:20:10.

forward again and although Maguire's effort was boiled, Toni Martinez

:20:11.:20:13.

followed up to level the scores. A replay would have been the right

:20:14.:20:17.

reward for Oxford's endeavours, but four minutes from time, their hearts

:20:18.:20:25.

were broken. We've got one big semifinal coming up that we're all

:20:26.:20:27.

looking forward to and then to be fair, we have about 16 cup finals is

:20:28.:20:32.

night. It's each week for Southampton.

:21:56.:21:56.

We will look forward to that. It was a terrible maritime disaster

:21:57.:21:58.

but the sinking of the SS Mendi is a story that remains largely

:21:59.:22:01.

unknown in the UK. More than 600 people

:22:02.:22:03.

lost their lives when the troopship went down off the Isle of Wight

countrymen, members of the South African Navy have sailed 6000 miles

:22:31.:22:35.

to Southampton to commemorate a tragedy their nation has never

:22:36.:22:45.

forgotten. In February 1917, the trip ship the S S Mendi was on the

:22:46.:22:49.

last leg of her journey from Africa to France. She carried members of

:22:50.:22:53.

the South African native labour corps, forbidden to bear arms, they

:22:54.:22:56.

were recruited to build trenches, railways and roads for the Allied

:22:57.:23:01.

forces. In thick fog, south of the Isle of Wight, the Mendi collided

with the much larger ship. There was effectively cut into by the impact,

:23:23.:23:29.

More than 600 men died. A few bodies washed ashore and were buried but

most were lost at sea, their names recorded here in Hollybrook

are brought to life with this commemoration. Though long honoured

in South Africa, in the UK, the recognition for trips lost on the

:24:10.:24:14.

Mendi have taken time, the story only becoming more known after the

:24:15.:24:19.

wreck was discovered by an Isle of Wight diver in 1974. It is just a

:24:20.:24:24.

horrendous story of loss of life. Almost half the loss of the number

:24:25.:24:28.

of the Titanic and here it is of the Isle of Wight. There are two ways of

:24:29.:24:33.

looking at it. Either it was covered up by the Admiralty for propaganda

:24:34.:24:36.

reasons and row or we have to look the other aspect of was it because

:24:37.:24:41.

they were black people and they were considered, you know, not as

:24:42.:24:45.

important as white people and unfortunately we had to consider

:24:46.:24:51.

that aspect. Now the story of the SS Mendi is being taught to a new

:24:52.:24:56.

generation and in the centenary year, two nations stand together to

:24:57.:24:59.

remember the contribution and sacrifice of men who died far from

:25:00.:25:06.

home in very different things. -- very different times.

:25:07.:25:12.

Remembering the SS Mendi and those who lost their lives. Moving ahead

:25:13.:25:18.

to the weather now. Very mild today with a high of 17 Celsius. That is

:25:19.:25:22.

around 8 degrees above the seasonal average.

:25:23.:25:34.

So, we sat some sunshine today and through the course of this week, we

:25:35.:25:38.

will have some brighter spells here and there. But there will be a great

:25:39.:25:42.

deal of Plaid as well and the chance we could have some outbreaks of

:25:43.:25:46.

rain. Mild start to the week but turning cooler with a brisk, called

:25:47.:25:50.

Westerly winds from Thursday onwards. Through the course of two

:25:51.:25:53.

nights, there will be a good deal of cloud, outbreaks of rain here and

:25:54.:25:56.

there. Could be on the heavy side as well with one or two heavy bursts

:25:57.:26:00.

and president for a time before temperatures fall away by Don to

:26:01.:26:04.

around nine or 11 Celsius so a mild night. It cloudy start to the date

:26:05.:26:09.

tomorrow. Slow, improving picture has to ring for the morning, we will

:26:10.:26:13.

start to see one or two brighter spells more likely the further north

:26:14.:26:18.

and west you are. Generally, cloud tomorrow and another mild day but

:26:19.:26:21.

today's temperatures, culturally different from tomorrow. High today

:26:22.:26:26.

of 17, high tomorrow of 12. Through tomorrow night and the early hours

:26:27.:26:30.

of Wednesday morning, the winds will increase from the south-west. Quite

:26:31.:26:33.

a cloudy night tomorrow night with outbreaks of light and patchy rain.

:26:34.:26:37.

Drier interludes as well with temperatures falling away to around

:26:38.:26:41.

nine or 10 Celsius. A cloudy day on Wednesday. Outbreaks of rain at

:26:42.:26:48.

times and winds will strengthen to touch the force. Even stronger winds

:26:49.:26:53.

inland with one or two brighter spells. Highs of ten to 11 Celsius.

:26:54.:26:59.

On Thursday we start to drop in Calder, Westerly air. That will

:27:00.:27:02.

bring us an area of low pressures of the chance of deals and again. A

:27:03.:27:07.

real squeeze on the isobars. Very cold winds coming directly down from

:27:08.:27:10.

the north and there will be spells of rain during the course of

:27:11.:27:13.

Thursday daytime with a great deal of cloud so a fresh feeling take and

:27:14.:27:18.

it will also feel very cold on Friday with it the chance of the

:27:19.:27:21.

wintry showers. A bit of sweet and even the stall shower here and there

:27:22.:27:27.

with height of 8-7 Celsius. Frost on early Saturday, wet for a time and

:27:28.:27:31.

showers on Sunday. That's always got time for this

:27:32.:27:35.

evening. There is more at 10:30pm tonight and will be back tomorrow at

:27:36.:27:40.

6:30pm tomorrow. Join us then if you can, but have a lovely evening. Good

:27:41.:27:41.

night. You're sponsored to swap

:27:42.:28:13.

clothes? I don't get that. Maybe you wear your mother's

:28:14.:28:15.

clothes? Cool. Yeah, finally. What? I don't get it, what does she wear?

:28:16.:28:18.

No, no... Like, she wears someone else's.

:28:19.:28:20.

Cool, yeah. No, she's... OK, that's too complicated.

:28:21.:28:22.

Do another one. So, like, you get sponsored to let

:28:23.:28:24.

people lick stuff off you for a day. Ugh. No, but, like, you get these

:28:25.:28:27.

flavoured... Not going to happen. You take a selfie and post it on

:28:28.:28:30.

social media or whatever, and then people have to pay

:28:31.:28:38.

to guess who it is? That's a no-brainer,

:28:39.:28:44.

we love the secret selfie.
