In tonight's programme: so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:00.

Searching a convicted killer's former home.

:00:07.:00:08.

Forensics officers spend a second day digging at the house

:00:09.:00:12.

where Christopher Halliwell used to live in Swindon.

:00:13.:00:16.

Also, the-self employed midwives told they can't deliver babies

:00:17.:00:18.

because they don't have suitable insurance.

:00:19.:00:22.

Join me for high tea at Highclere Castle.

:00:23.:00:25.

You might know it better as Downton Abbey, where a piece

:00:26.:00:28.

Police have been searching a former home of convicted murderer

:00:29.:00:47.

Christopher Haliwell for a second day.

:00:48.:00:48.

Officers have been digging at the back of two terraced houses

:00:49.:00:51.

They say they're acting on specific intelligence they've received.

:00:52.:00:56.

Will Glennon has been there throughout the day.

:00:57.:01:01.

Police searches have continued on Broad Street throughout the day.

:01:02.:01:05.

As specialist officers combed garages and gardens,

:01:06.:01:14.

the sound of concrete drilling echoed down the alley.

:01:15.:01:16.

Neighbours say they found all the activity quite surreal.

:01:17.:01:20.

As a community, we feel quite freaked out about

:01:21.:01:25.

It a bit too close for comfort, isn't it?

:01:26.:01:29.

Yeah, it is, really, but there's not much we can do

:01:30.:01:31.

Christopher Halliwell was convicted last September of his second

:01:32.:01:38.

A taxi driver in Swindon, he killed Sian O'Callaghan in 2011.

:01:39.:01:50.

But Becky Godden disappeared in 2003 and Halliwell was found

:01:51.:01:52.

Police have kept the family informed and for Becky's dad John,

:01:53.:01:59.

I'm really upset, I'm really upset with it all.

:02:00.:02:05.

I mean, I want Becky to be at peace.

:02:06.:02:10.

You know what I mean, it all should have been done six years ago.

:02:11.:02:19.

With eight years separating the two killings, many people believe that

:02:20.:02:21.

Former Wiltshire police Detective Steve Fulcher was in charge

:02:22.:02:27.

In September last year, he told the BBC there must be more.

:02:28.:02:36.

I mean, I spent a lot of time with Christopher Halliwell.

:02:37.:02:38.

He was contrite, fully contrite, crying on my shoulder when I dealt

:02:39.:02:41.

with him and there is no question that from all the information that

:02:42.:02:44.

I gathered when I was running this inquiry in 2011 that he has

:02:45.:02:48.

Wiltshire police haven't officially linked any

:02:49.:02:54.

other crimes to Halliwell, but they have appealed to him

:02:55.:03:01.

There may yet be more victims lying undisturbed and the search

:03:02.:03:06.

Firefighters have now left the scene of the explosion and fire at a block

:03:07.:03:15.

They've been gathering evidence and are working with the police

:03:16.:03:19.

Some residents have been able to return home, but 13 households

:03:20.:03:25.

are still in alternative accommodation and some will need

:03:26.:03:27.

The families of two Buckinghamshire men killed in a head-on car crash

:03:28.:03:34.

in 2014 have listened as a misconduct hearing

:03:35.:03:37.

took evidence against three Thames Valley police officers.

:03:38.:03:39.

It's alleged that they failed in their duty to protect the public

:03:40.:03:42.

after leaving the scene of an earlier road accident

:03:43.:03:45.

without taking sufficient measures to warn other road users

:03:46.:03:48.

At the heart of this misconduct hearing is an accident on a rural

:03:49.:03:55.

stretch of road that cost two men's lives.

:03:56.:03:59.

It is not possible to say whether that accident would have

:04:00.:04:01.

been avoided had three Thames Valley police officers acted differently.

:04:02.:04:04.

The question for the panel and legal experts meeting here in Newbury

:04:05.:04:09.

Did they fail in their duty to protect members of the public?

:04:10.:04:16.

It was in March 2014 at five in the morning when PCs David Stamp,

:04:17.:04:20.

Hugh Flanagan and Caroline Irwin, all on duty at Amersham police

:04:21.:04:26.

station, were called to attend a road accident on the A413

:04:27.:04:30.

between Wendover and Great Missenden.

:04:31.:04:33.

A car had skidded in the road and run into a ditch.

:04:34.:04:36.

The officers left the scene after 20 minutes but half an hour later,

:04:37.:04:40.

two more cars collided head-on on the same stretch.

:04:41.:04:44.

Both drivers, 64-year-old Malcolm Tindall from Tilbury

:04:45.:04:53.

Both drivers, 64-year-old Malcolm Tindall from Aylesbury

:04:54.:04:54.

and Carl Bird, who was 29 and from High Wycombe, were killed.

:04:55.:04:57.

There is disagreement over whether there was ice on the road.

:04:58.:05:00.

Both men's families were here today for the start of the hearing.

:05:01.:05:03.

They have each called for an independent investigation

:05:04.:05:05.

as to why police left the scene of the earlier accident

:05:06.:05:07.

without taking sufficient measures to warn other drivers

:05:08.:05:09.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission

:05:10.:05:12.

This misconduct hearing is expected to last until the end of next week.

:05:13.:05:24.

Ambitious plans to change health services across Oxfordshire,

:05:25.:05:26.

Buckinghamshire and West Berkshire have been rejected by Oxfordshire

:05:27.:05:28.

The local NHS is hoping to save ?480 million and has put

:05:29.:05:33.

a plan to redesign acute services out to public consultation.

:05:34.:05:37.

But councillors say there's been too little information.

:05:38.:05:40.

Sinead Carroll told me what happened at today's council meeting.

:05:41.:05:44.

Well, today, Geraldine, councillors were talking

:05:45.:05:46.

about something called Sustainability and

:05:47.:05:47.

Now, these are things that Clinical Commissioning Groups

:05:48.:05:51.

across the UK have been drawing up, not just here in our region.

:05:52.:05:55.

The aim is to improve efficiency and save money.

:05:56.:05:58.

So the one they were talking about in Oxfordshire today

:05:59.:06:01.

refers to Oxfordshire, West Berkshire and Buckinghamshire,

:06:02.:06:03.

where by 2021, there is expected to be a ?480 million funding gap.

:06:04.:06:06.

Unsurprisingly, it has proved pretty controversial.

:06:07.:06:10.

You'll probably remember some scenes like these here in Banbury,

:06:11.:06:17.

where there have been regular protests against possible

:06:18.:06:20.

downgrading of the Horton Hospital, proposed changes to emergency,

:06:21.:06:23.

maternity and paediatric services there.

:06:24.:06:27.

Essentially, today, the Cabinet at the County Council said they just

:06:28.:06:30.

Some people said it wasn't transparent.

:06:31.:06:36.

I think the biggest reason is because they have cut

:06:37.:06:39.

the consultation in two, there is phase one and phase two.

:06:40.:06:44.

I don't believe, and nor did the rest of the Cabinet,

:06:45.:06:47.

that you can have two separate consultations because what's decided

:06:48.:06:52.

So what happens now, where do we go from here?

:06:53.:06:57.

Well, Hilary Hibbert-Biles, who you just heard from there,

:06:58.:07:00.

says the CCG don't have to actually listen to anything the Cabinet

:07:01.:07:03.

or indeed the full council say, but that they would be advised to.

:07:04.:07:07.

The Government says that cuts have to be made and so far,

:07:08.:07:09.

no other proposals are on the table, so there's an ongoing consultation

:07:10.:07:12.

at the moment and that's about acute services.

:07:13.:07:15.

In May, they'll be a separate consultation that will open

:07:16.:07:18.

and they are about options to change emergency care, Children's Services

:07:19.:07:23.

The sale of land for a new secondary school in Oxford has been approved.

:07:24.:07:29.

The site of Meadowbrook College will be sold by the county

:07:30.:07:32.

council to the Department for Education for ?1.

:07:33.:07:35.

It will enable a new secondary school to be built on the site -

:07:36.:07:39.

with the existing college rehoused elsewhere.

:07:40.:07:41.

If it goes ahead, the Swan School will open in 2019.

:07:42.:07:45.

Independent midwives in Oxfordshire are claiming new rules that stop

:07:46.:07:48.

them practising are unfair and are removing

:07:49.:07:51.

The Nursing and Midwifery council has ruled that self-employed

:07:52.:07:55.

midwives don't have sufficient insurance cover, and therefore

:07:56.:07:58.

Katharine Da Costa has been to meet some of those affected.

:07:59.:08:05.

After a traumatic birth with her first child,

:08:06.:08:08.

Camila Preece from Crowmarsh Gifford employed Liz,

:08:09.:08:10.

an independent midwife, to support her throughout

:08:11.:08:12.

her pregnancy and home birth with daughter Kitty.

:08:13.:08:19.

When I was having my son, I actually went through three different shifts

:08:20.:08:28.

of midwives through labour. When I had the independent midwives, they

:08:29.:08:30.

were with me throughout labour, came to the hospital when I had to

:08:31.:08:34.

transfer and it is that level of care that the NHS isn't able to

:08:35.:08:37.

provide and that makes all the difference.

:08:38.:08:38.

Since 2014, all health professionals must have indemnity insurance

:08:39.:08:40.

in case of compensation claims if something goes wrong.

:08:41.:08:42.

In January, the Nursing and Midwifery Council ruled that

:08:43.:08:44.

around 80 independent midwives like Liz didn't have

:08:45.:08:47.

sufficient levels of cover and would no longer be able

:08:48.:08:50.

Liz says it's destroyed her career and has de-registered

:08:51.:08:57.

as a midwife so she can continue to support her remaining

:08:58.:09:00.

For me, my moral wish to continue to attend my clients' berths trump

:09:01.:09:17.

staying on the register. Campaigners plan to fight

:09:18.:09:19.

the ruling and say women's rights

:09:20.:09:21.

are being ignored. In a statement, the NMC said it

:09:22.:09:22.

"absolutely supports a woman's right Gemma Kingsbury from Oxford's

:09:23.:09:25.

preparing for a home birth She'd employed Liz to care

:09:26.:09:38.

for her but is now planning For me, the risks of being forced to

:09:39.:09:56.

go into hospital and being in the hospital setting, with the lights

:09:57.:09:59.

and different people and having medicalised practices imposed on me

:10:00.:10:06.

is more of a risk than staying at home without anyone.

:10:07.:10:07.

Like many women, Gemma feels there's too much red tape around what should

:10:08.:10:10.

The NMC says its priority is the safety of women

:10:11.:10:14.

Residents in Oxford are asking the city council not to allow

:10:15.:10:24.

Network Rail to back out of a promise to install

:10:25.:10:27.

noise muffling devices on the new line to Bicester.

:10:28.:10:29.

The last section of track on the line to London Marylebone

:10:30.:10:32.

opened in December and permission was granted on condition noise

:10:33.:10:34.

Now Network Rail is asking for that condition to be dropped.

:10:35.:10:39.

Jeremy Thorowgood says he's always been proud of the picturesque

:10:40.:10:46.

golf course at the back of his Oxford home.

:10:47.:10:48.

A place of peace, relaxation and harmony.

:10:49.:10:50.

That was until the new rail line opened from Oxford to London.

:10:51.:10:56.

It sounds like, at its worst, a lorry driving straight

:10:57.:10:59.

There are already these sound barriers to limit noise.

:11:00.:11:05.

But another requirement to install special dampers to make the track

:11:06.:11:08.

quieter has so far not been adhered to.

:11:09.:11:12.

I think it will cause a lot of distress and mental

:11:13.:11:16.

health problems, frankly, because if people can't sleep

:11:17.:11:18.

at night, if they can't enjoy their gardens in the summer,

:11:19.:11:22.

More than 600 people have signed a petition urging

:11:23.:11:28.

Oxford City Council to make sure Network Rail installs the dampers.

:11:29.:11:33.

If it doesn't happen, residents fear the problem will get

:11:34.:11:35.

Passenger trains have never been the major issue,

:11:36.:11:41.

Those trains are going to be running overnight, so we are very worried

:11:42.:11:47.

that they are going to be keeping us up.

:11:48.:11:50.

One o'clock in the morning, you really don't want

:11:51.:11:52.

Network Rail promised to look into whether Silent Track would be

:11:53.:11:58.

worth the significant cost to install.

:11:59.:12:00.

But the way Jeremy sees it, and hears it, is that something else

:12:01.:12:15.

needs to be done. I'll have the headlines at 8pm

:12:16.:12:17.

and a full bulletin at 10:30pm. Now more of today's

:12:18.:12:25.

stories with Sally Taylor. Probably the saddest thing

:12:26.:12:31.

was leaving him at hospital, knowing that we had to come home,

:12:32.:12:33.

and it did feel that we were leaving For more information on Charlene's

message from a champ! I will be telling you how I came

:12:43.:12:51.

back from injury to win the amateur heavyweight boxing title.

:12:52.:12:53.

The search is underway to find the 3,500 workers who'll be needed

:12:54.:12:56.

Much of the town centre has been flattened to make way for new shops,

:12:57.:13:01.

bars and restaurants as part of the scheme, which

:13:02.:13:03.

Supporters say they're not the kind of jobs the new town was established

:13:04.:13:08.

to create but they're vital to Bracknell's future prosperity.

:13:09.:13:14.

A woman from West Sussex who's had breast implants removed

:13:15.:13:16.

following health concerns is urging women to think twice before

:13:17.:13:19.

Annette Stevens from Bognor Regis spent more than ?5,000 on a breast

:13:20.:13:27.

enlargement in 2003 but spent ?6,000 having the implants removed last

:13:28.:13:30.

year because she believed they were poisoning her.

:13:31.:13:34.

Annette Stevens with the implants which were inside her

:13:35.:13:40.

They were not bigger. They were full.

:13:41.:13:51.

Annette told me her implants had leaked.

:13:52.:13:53.

In recent years, she's suffered hair loss, depression,

:13:54.:13:55.

insomnia, memory loss and other health problems.

:13:56.:13:57.

Last October, Annette spent ?6,000 on an operation in Holland

:13:58.:14:01.

She said she felt relieved and has since noticed health improvements.

:14:02.:14:07.

I don't feel so cold any more, I've got a little bit more

:14:08.:14:11.

I feel like my body's thanking me for listening to all of the symptoms

:14:12.:14:19.

that I had that I thought I was just getting old.

:14:20.:14:22.

Annette's implants were manufactured by a company called Silimed.

:14:23.:14:24.

In 2015, their distribution was suspended while the EU

:14:25.:14:26.

Last October, a report by the Dutch public health organisation RIVM

:14:27.:14:30.

indicated the risk to patients was low and the government is now

:14:31.:14:34.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory

:14:35.:14:42.

I don't know why I felt the need to have implants but,

:14:43.:15:00.

if you look at the day and age we're in and how we're bombarded with

:15:01.:15:12.

these pictures of being perfect, you know, boobs aren't everything.

:15:13.:15:16.

Nobody's perfect and it's about loving the skin you're in,

:15:17.:15:18.

loving who you are as a person, and it's taken me quite a long

:15:19.:15:22.

Annette originally chose implants to help her confidence but now says

:15:23.:15:25.

removing them has boosted it even more.

:15:26.:15:32.

A former Royal Marine from Tidworth in Wiltshire who's recovering

:15:33.:15:34.

from post-traumatic stress disorder is now trying for a world record.

:15:35.:15:40.

Louis Nethercott will try to crawl, swim and trek his way

:15:41.:15:42.

across the world's five largest islands unaided.

:15:43.:15:47.

He's already completed the first stage - the jungles of Borneo.

:15:48.:15:50.

Next, he'll head to Papua New Guinea then to Madagascar and Greenland

:15:51.:15:53.

before finishing at Baffin Island in Canada.

:15:54.:15:56.

I found it very hard to relax and chill out.

:15:57.:16:03.

I was always expecting something to happen.

:16:04.:16:05.

Louis was medically discharged from the Marines a few months ago

:16:06.:16:09.

after returning home from the front line in Afghanistan.

:16:10.:16:12.

He wants to raise awareness about the impact

:16:13.:16:15.

My section lost two guys and a few others were injured

:16:16.:16:21.

Something happens when you are on active service and,

:16:22.:16:26.

when you come back, things have changed.

:16:27.:16:28.

I felt like I was sort of in a different world.

:16:29.:16:31.

It took just 40 days for former Marines Louis Nethercott

:16:32.:16:33.

and Anthony Lambert to get across Borneo - the first

:16:34.:16:37.

of the world's five biggest islands they're determined to conquer.

:16:38.:16:42.

For Louis, the challenge has become a way of coping

:16:43.:16:45.

We were just completely on our own in the jungle

:16:46.:16:50.

there with nobody to be seen for miles.

:16:51.:16:56.

It was an incredible experience but it was also incredibly tough,

:16:57.:16:58.

Loads of people go the Poles nowadays, up Everest.

:16:59.:17:02.

We wanted to come up with one that was a bit unique.

:17:03.:17:05.

By taking on this expedition, he wants to raise funds

:17:06.:17:07.

for the forces' charities that are helping him and hundreds

:17:08.:17:10.

To think we've got another four ahead of us, I think we just have

:17:11.:17:18.

to look at one at a time and, once that's done, move

:17:19.:17:21.

If I just think of all four in my head, it becomes

:17:22.:17:25.

The pair will set off for Papa New Guinea

:17:26.:17:29.

They hope to finish all five islands at some point next year -

:17:30.:17:33.

an endurance test that will push them almost to the limit.

:17:34.:17:43.

Got some horse racing news for you, which is disappointing.

:17:44.:17:54.

Dorset-trained racehorse Thistlecrack has been ruled out

:17:55.:17:56.

Colin Tizzard's horse was the favourite for jump racing's

:17:57.:18:02.

blue riband event but has suffered a tendon injury that will keep him

Tizzard still has leading fancies Cue Card and Native

Brighton are back down to second in the Championship

:18:10.:18:19.

after Newcastle's win over Aston Villa last night.

:18:20.:18:21.

Tonight, the teams in third and fourth clash in another huge

:18:22.:18:23.

game for the promotion chasers Jaap Stam's Reading

:18:24.:18:25.

It's live on BBC Radio Berkshire tonight.

:18:26.:18:28.

Tim Dellor will be commentating as the Royals aim to go seven unbeaten.

:18:29.:18:38.

Anybody who has been following these royals know it is the Terriers and

:18:39.:18:44.

cookies have been biting at their heels. Last season these two sides

:18:45.:18:51.

met on four occasions. Earlier this season, Reading beat Huddersfield at

:18:52.:18:55.

the Madejski Stadium. Whichever team wins the night, will finish third in

:18:56.:19:00.

the Champion ship. We kick off here at 7:45pm.

:19:01.:19:02.

Aldershot Town have revealed they've rejected an approach

:19:03.:19:04.

for their management team led by Gary Waddock.

:19:05.:19:06.

In a statement, the national league side say an unnamed League 1 club

:19:07.:19:09.

masked to speak to Waddock and assistant James Rowe.

:19:10.:19:11.

Both men have informed the club they're not interested in pursuing

:19:12.:19:14.

Now to the story of the boxer who recovered from a freak injury

:19:15.:19:18.

to fight his way back to the summit of the amateur game.

:19:19.:19:21.

Greg Bridet saw his Olympic dreams shattered by a series of setbacks

:19:22.:19:24.

but the Heart of Portsmouth boxer who trains at Southampton solent

:19:25.:19:26.

university was back in the ring for a big win this past weekend.

:19:27.:19:35.

Greg Bridet was back in the gym today and he is back on the boxing

:19:36.:19:42.

scene in the big way. This weekend the former heavyweight champion won

:19:43.:19:46.

the English title, quite a comeback for a fighter of Olympic dreams were

I'm not ruling anything out at the moment. Greg Bridet will compete the

Championships next month, further evidence his back punching his

generations for fans. It was such magic. This is a man

autographs. Second in the league and all that, Wembley sticks and

people's minds. Oh, my word! We could be seeing scenes like that

:22:10.:22:10.

again soon. An album of photographs revealing

:22:11.:22:12.

the real Downton Abbey It shows life at Highclere Castle in

:22:13.:22:14.

Berkshire more than 120 years ago - around the time the ITV drama that's

:22:15.:22:18.

filmed there was first set. The album contains 44 photographs

:22:19.:22:21.

of the 80-bedroom house, staff and grounds, providing

:22:22.:22:23.

a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the fifth Earl of Carnarvon,

:22:24.:22:26.

who was best known for helping to discover the Egyptian tomb

:22:27.:22:31.

of Tutankhamen in 1922. A special delivery is one of the

:22:32.:22:50.

UK's most recognisable house is. Thank you. An album that provides a

:22:51.:22:58.

window into the real-life Downton Abbey is returning home after more

:22:59.:23:03.

than a century. It is like a jigsaw puzzle and you were trying to piece

:23:04.:23:06.

things back together again, figure out who was here, the names and if

:23:07.:23:12.

you were not quite sure of something, the piano, I have put in

:23:13.:23:20.

the drawing-room. The 1895 album the 44 photographs was found in a normal

:23:21.:23:24.

house clearance in Dorset. The reason why was there is yet known. I

:23:25.:23:30.

am not sure whether that was Streatfeild, the butler. It was set

:23:31.:23:35.

to go under the hammer with a ?500 price tag but despite huge interest

:23:36.:23:39.

from around the world it has been sold privately to the Highclere

:23:40.:23:45.

estate. Everybody has been delighted with the outcome, it has come back.

:23:46.:23:48.

But it could have gone to an American bidder. It may well have

:23:49.:23:53.

done but sometimes what is so nice is it is not all about money. As the

:23:54.:24:03.

ITV series follows the Earl of Grantham and his family, this album

:24:04.:24:07.

features a snapshot of the life that the fifth Earl, George Herbert and

:24:08.:24:13.

his wife. The famously bankrolled Howard Carter's discovery of the

:24:14.:24:18.

tomb of Tutankhamun in the 1920s. It also marks a visitor Prince Edwards.

:24:19.:24:26.

But it is not just the aristocracy featured here. In 1895, Highclere

:24:27.:24:31.

would have been working house and would have been 60 members of staff

:24:32.:24:35.

here and interestingly this album also shows what life would have been

:24:36.:24:37.

60 members of staff here and interestingly this album also shows

:24:38.:24:40.

what life would be like backstairs. I know my place! I think that is

:24:41.:24:46.

what makes these house is live. Louis and Georgian everybody... That

:24:47.:24:52.

is how it works. The photos could be on display when the house opens its

:24:53.:24:57.

doors in the summer, far from a work of fiction, this piece of history is

:24:58.:25:06.

now back where it belongs. Highclere Castle!

expecting a fair amount of cloud and patchy rain in places, drizzly

:25:33.:25:38.

conditions, but drier periods as well and mild temperatures. Winds

:25:59.:26:05.

breeze will be strong in particular. The rain will continue to strengthen

:26:06.:26:09.

through the early hours of Thursday morning and by Thursday morning we

:26:10.:26:13.

are expecting the next weather system which is part of storm Doris

:26:14.:26:18.

and the area of pressure moving in from the Atlantic. Storm Doris is

:26:19.:26:23.

expecting to affect areas in Midlands but for us in the south,

Oxfordshire has a Met Office wind warning. The rain will be very heavy

:26:29.:26:33.

for the rush-hour dry to work. Most of the rain clears at lunchtime.

:26:34.:26:37.

That is when the winds will try them and that is when we expect the

:26:38.:26:42.

strongest of the winds. Wind gusts in Oxfordshire 60 mph, elsewhere,

:26:43.:26:51.

50-55 mph. The low pressure pulls away into the North Sea and through

the course of Thursday afternoon in the evening, that is when the winds

:26:56.:26:59.

will ease. There is that Met Office wind warning to Oxfordshire on

Thursday through the afternoon in particular. Friday, a lot of cloud.

:27:07.:27:11.

It will break to allow the sunny spells and the odd isolated shower

:27:12.:27:16.

that we expect rain at times do the course of Saturday with showers on

:27:17.:27:22.

Sunday. Fairly cloudy of the next few days, limited brightness, and

:27:23.:27:26.

Doris arrives on Thursday. We have been waiting for that.
