Ask yourself how you'd feel to lose someone so special.

:00:18.:00:46.

That's the plea from a man appealing for help

:00:47.:00:48.

after his mother was killed by a gang in Milton

:00:49.:00:50.

Six men broke into the home of Hang Yin Leung, pinning her down

:00:51.:00:54.

The 65-year-old died of her injuries ten days later.

:00:55.:00:57.

Police are treating her death as murder.

:00:58.:00:59.

To me, what's been taken cannot be replaced.

:01:00.:01:06.

So, please, if you have any information on the events that took

:01:07.:01:13.

place on the 31st of January, please contact Crimestoppers

:01:14.:01:16.

Today, Keith Leung paid tribute to his mother,

:01:17.:01:24.

and spoke of the lifelong friend he had lost.

:01:25.:01:31.

I'll just remember her as somebody that was bubbly and energetic,

:01:32.:01:34.

as the way that she would want to be remembered.

:01:35.:01:37.

Mrs Leung's house in Orne Gardens, Milton Keynes, was picked out

:01:38.:01:40.

by the gang of six men who returned on the 31st of January.

:01:41.:01:43.

It was on this night they forced their way inside,

:01:44.:01:45.

Police today were keen to stress that this is no longer a burglary

:01:46.:01:53.

but a murder investigation and they are appealing

:01:54.:01:55.

for the public's help to find those responsible.

:01:56.:01:58.

I'd ask anybody who has travelled between Milton Keynes

:01:59.:02:02.

and Aylesbury on that evening, Tuesday the 31st of January,

:02:03.:02:05.

between 6:30pm and 9:30pm, if they've noticed a car driving

:02:06.:02:09.

erratically, dangerously, with possibly up to six

:02:10.:02:13.

persons in that vehicle, to please contact the police.

:02:14.:02:18.

The thieves that targeted Mrs Leung's home took a number

:02:19.:02:23.

of possessions including a Gold Oyster Rolex

:02:24.:02:26.

and her long-service police medal from Hong Kong.

:02:27.:02:29.

Police want to hear from anyone who may have information about these

:02:30.:02:32.

items and wish to reassure the public that a team of 30

:02:33.:02:36.

officers are dedicated to catching those responsible.

:02:37.:02:38.

Oxford Bus Company says it ran 80% of its

:02:39.:02:46.

services as normal today despite strike action

:02:47.:02:50.

by hundreds of drivers, a claim disputed by the Unite union.

:02:51.:02:53.

But tonight both sides are saying they're willing to enter into talks.

:02:54.:02:57.

Away from the delays and cancellations, there was one

:02:58.:02:59.

benefit for passengers - a flat fare of ?1.

:03:00.:03:02.

William Davies joined the morning and evening commuters to find out

:03:03.:03:05.

8:00am, morning rush hour in Headington.

:03:06.:03:12.

Fewer buses than normal, longer queues and disgruntled

:03:13.:03:14.

commuters texting in to say they'll be late.

:03:15.:03:20.

Most routes run by the Oxford Bus company were running -

:03:21.:03:23.

although with limited service - but some were cancelled entirely.

:03:24.:03:27.

I was waiting for the X90, as I usually do in the morning,

:03:28.:03:30.

but I'm surprised to find out there's a strike and there's

:03:31.:03:33.

There are two bus companies operating in the city.

:03:34.:03:44.

Stagecoach drivers are not involved in this dispute,

:03:45.:03:46.

so although their buses were busier than usual, people were still

:03:47.:03:49.

11am, Cowley Road, after the rush hour -

:03:50.:03:52.

Today's strike is over pay and especially pay on bank holidays -

:03:53.:03:59.

whether or not the 27th of December and the 2nd of January should be

:04:00.:04:03.

classified as such if the previous days fall on the weekend,

:04:04.:04:05.

The company says no, the drivers on strike, yes.

:04:06.:04:15.

It's not all about the money, it's about the strength of feeling

:04:16.:04:18.

of what he's doing because he's beginning to attack their

:04:19.:04:20.

Having this action is no good for anybody.

:04:21.:04:24.

I've been in daily contact with the Unite regional officer this

:04:25.:04:28.

week, either by e-mail or telephone, and I will do so again today.

:04:29.:04:31.

I do hope we can enter into meaningful discussions.

:04:32.:04:35.

1:00pm here in Kidlington and, as you can see, there's no one

:04:36.:04:38.

waiting at this bus stop, an indication perhaps

:04:39.:04:40.

that the impact of today's strike hasn't been too severe on people

:04:41.:04:44.

5:00pm, St Giles' bus stops and buses are full.

:04:45.:05:05.

Both sides in this dispute blame each other for holding up talks,

:05:06.:05:08.

but for passengers the real hold up is getting home.

:05:09.:05:10.

Three Thames Valley Police officers have been disciplined following

:05:11.:05:13.

A panel decided PC David Stamp, PC Hugh Flanagan and PC Caroline Irwin,

:05:14.:05:17.

seen here walking at the back, did not warn drivers of the dangers

:05:18.:05:20.

on the A413 near Great Missenden after a car accident in March 2014.

:05:21.:05:27.

This led to a further crash in which two people died.

:05:28.:05:30.

The officers have given official warnings and will

:05:31.:05:34.

-- have been given official warnings.

:05:35.:05:44.

An inquest into the deaths of the two drivers

:05:45.:05:46.

A council chairman in Oxfordshire has been thrown out of the ruling

:05:47.:05:50.

Conservative group after criticising planners.

:05:51.:05:51.

Last night, saw residents in Sonning Common protesting over

:05:52.:05:54.

plans to build one hundred homes - when they'd agreed to just 26.

:05:55.:05:57.

Paul Harrison from South Oxfordshire District Council said planning

:05:58.:05:59.

officers were "too keen" to approve housing developments.

:06:00.:06:01.

A short time ago, our political reporter Bethan Phillips told me

:06:02.:06:03.

Well, lots of areas in our region have agreed neighbourhood plans.

:06:04.:06:08.

Sonning Common voted on theirs last year -

:06:09.:06:10.

deciding on where homes can be built.

:06:11.:06:14.

One field was supposed to have 26 homes on it.

:06:15.:06:16.

But then a planning application came forward for 95 homes.

:06:17.:06:19.

And there was outrage from residents when officers from

:06:20.:06:22.

South Oxfordshire District Council recommended that for approval,

:06:23.:06:25.

saying it would provide much-needed affordable homes.

:06:26.:06:29.

Campaigners went along to the decision meeting last night

:06:30.:06:31.

to protest and in the end councillors did refuse

:06:32.:06:34.

But the chairman of South Oxfordshire District Council had

:06:35.:06:41.

made comments at a previous meeting which have led to him being excluded

:06:42.:06:44.

He said that planning officers were too keen to push

:06:45.:06:48.

through applications - and he's standing by his comments.

:06:49.:06:53.

Certain councillors there did not like me criticising officers

:06:54.:06:55.

But I'm not prepared, as an individual, to cover up

:06:56.:07:02.

The leader of South Oxfordshire District Council, John Cotton,

:07:03.:07:09.

has said the comments were totally unacceptable, they amounted

:07:10.:07:13.

to personal attacks on officers and that's why he's been excluded

:07:14.:07:16.

Is this raising even more questions about these neighbourhood plans?

:07:17.:07:28.

Well, there is huge pressure for councils

:07:29.:07:29.

to get homes built to deal with the housing crisis.

:07:30.:07:32.

And I think this case may well make other areas nervous about how

:07:33.:07:35.

robust their neighbourhood plans are - albeit councillors did

:07:36.:07:37.

It does also feed in to wider concerns about

:07:38.:07:41.

The charity Shelter says it's producing high-value,

:07:42.:07:47.

poor-quality homes, rather than much-needed starter houses.

:07:48.:07:52.

A tribunal has ruled Oxford City Council is able

:07:53.:07:59.

to charge leaseholders for renovation work to the tower

:08:00.:08:01.

Residents who own their flats are disputing bills of up to ?50,000

:08:02.:08:07.

for work to five buildings in Blackbird Leys,

:08:08.:08:09.

But they say they were under no illusion that the charges

:08:10.:08:14.

A three-day hearing to determine how much they have to pay

:08:15.:08:17.

Pupils at a school near Reading have been getting to know

:08:18.:08:24.

their new classmates - a herd of goats.

:08:25.:08:27.

They're not the first students to get hands on experience -

:08:28.:08:32.

the Warriner school in Bloxham runs a farm.

:08:33.:08:34.

But there was no denying the excitement in Earley.

:08:35.:08:36.

Joe Campbell has been finding out more.

:08:37.:08:39.

Most schools would be content with a couple of gerbils,

:08:40.:08:41.

maybe a hamster or a rabbit, but not here.

:08:42.:08:45.

When I heard that there are goats in our school,

:08:46.:08:49.

I thought it was just, like, a joke because you don't

:08:50.:08:52.

Even though there are a bit smelly, they are really fun to take care of.

:08:53.:09:04.

The goats first arrived here back in September.

:09:05.:09:06.

Since then, they've become very much at home.

:09:07.:09:12.

The youngsters have learned how to do take care of the goats.

:09:13.:09:15.

And looking after these new kids has been something

:09:16.:09:17.

I've learned a lot, I've made some mistakes and it's

:09:18.:09:21.

All the children know which one's the naughty one,

:09:22.:09:27.

But it now looks like the goats are here to stay.

:09:28.:09:38.

I'm back with headlines at 8:00pm and another bulletin at 10:30pm.

:09:39.:09:49.

Sally Taylor and the team are next with the rest

:09:50.:09:51.

of today's news stories - including Oxford United

:09:52.:09:55.

heading off to Wembley after a thrilling win last night.

:09:56.:09:57.

After today's glorious sunshine, there's a scent of spring in the air

:09:58.:10:18.

but sadly, that's going to be washed away with the arrival of rain.

:10:19.:10:34.

Hampshire and Sussex Police have both been judged to "require

:10:35.:10:36.

improvement" in a report by Her Majesty's

:10:37.:10:38.

The forces have been told they need to raise standards on keeping people

:10:39.:10:42.

It says it's "unacceptable" that two-thirds of Hampshire's

:10:43.:10:45.

investigations into domestic abuse don't progress, because the victim

:10:46.:10:47.

Sussex was found to be "inconsistent" in the quality

:10:48.:10:50.

Portsmouth has been named as one of 11 locations that has submitted

:10:51.:10:58.

a bid to become the UK City of Culture for 2021.

:10:59.:11:08.

The city is of course most well known for its rich naval heritage.

:11:09.:11:11.

And how can it beat off competition from the likes

:11:12.:11:15.

Edward Sault is live at Gunwharf Quays.

:11:16.:11:17.

Ed, this isn't the first time Portsmouth has thrown

:11:18.:11:19.

Portsmouth and Southampton joined forces in the past to become UK

:11:20.:11:33.

cities of culture the 2017 but unfortunately, it was not meant to

:11:34.:11:37.

be and they did not make the short list, Hull and Leicester battled it

:11:38.:11:40.

out instead. Portsmouth have regrouped and they want to go it

:11:41.:11:43.

alone in 2021 and they are pretty convinced they can make a go of it.

:11:44.:11:45.

Do you think you can win it this time?

:11:46.:11:48.

If you're not in it, you can't win it anyway, can you?

:11:49.:11:51.

So our view is that we feel we have such a lot to offer in this city.

:11:52.:11:56.

We have got huge areas of deprivation.

:11:57.:11:59.

To be able to regenerate those areas would be just wonderful.

:12:00.:12:01.

And of course, this would help immensely.

:12:02.:12:04.

Of course, this is something that brings in millions of pounds

:12:05.:12:07.

?3 million alone is guaranteed by the Heritage Lottery fund.

:12:08.:12:12.

So what's Portsmouth got that its competitors don't?

:12:13.:12:21.

I've been asking people in the city today.

:12:22.:12:23.

I think they've got a great football club.

:12:24.:12:25.

And you can tell by the fan base what it's all about, really.

:12:26.:12:30.

Massive naval history, military history, beautiful Guildhall,

:12:31.:12:32.

I can't put it in words. I just love it!

:12:33.:12:36.

Some came for the America's Cup, of course, and some come

:12:37.:12:43.

for Victoria's festival, so we're beginning to get more

:12:44.:12:45.

of a reputation and I think to build on those things,

:12:46.:12:47.

to bring people into Portsmouth and see what we can offer

:12:48.:12:50.

to the nation, well, to the world, it would be a really

:12:51.:12:53.

Well, Hull is the current title holder.

:12:54.:12:56.

At the beginning of this year, they had a huge fireworks display

:12:57.:12:59.

to celebrate the start of their year as City of Culture.

:13:00.:13:02.

Hull's had over ?1 billion of investment as a result.

:13:03.:13:07.

But what has Portsmouth got to do to win? They had this piece of advice

:13:08.:13:11.

from Hull earlier. What I would say to Portsmouth

:13:12.:13:13.

and what we learned, an awful lot of the world's history

:13:14.:13:15.

was made a new waterfront an awful lot of the world's history

:13:16.:13:18.

was made on your waterfront and your communities were shaped

:13:19.:13:21.

by what happened on the waterfront. And it's about celebrating that

:13:22.:13:24.

and really projecting just what Portsmouth did and what Hull

:13:25.:13:27.

has done for the world. And I'm sure that Portsmouth

:13:28.:13:30.

will want a piece of Hull's success. 11 cities vying for the prize which

:13:31.:13:42.

will be narrowed down to two. Portsmouth will be keeping their

:13:43.:13:45.

fingers crossed that they finally make the short list. Back to you.

:13:46.:13:49.

Ed, thank you and good luck to Portsmouth.

:13:50.:13:51.

It was the place where she wrote or revised all of her novels.

:13:52.:13:54.

Jane Austen lived in a red brick house in Chawton

:13:55.:13:56.

in Hampshire for eight years, until shortly before

:13:57.:13:58.

For her fans, the house - now a museum - has always offered

:13:59.:14:04.

a glimpse into the kind of life she led.

:14:05.:14:06.

But now, as the bicentenary of her death is marked,

:14:07.:14:09.

the interior has been recreated to make it even more authentic.

:14:10.:14:11.

James Ingham is live at the house now.

:14:12.:14:16.

It is quite something to be standing in the very room where one

:14:17.:14:22.

of our most cherished authors penned her great works,

:14:23.:14:27.

This is the table where Jane Austin were dashed down to and right after

:14:28.:14:33.

breakfast every day, novels like Pride And Prejudice. The house has

:14:34.:14:39.

been a museum since the 1940s but is still revealing its secrets. Tiny

:14:40.:14:43.

fragments of Regency wallpaper founded out of the way corners in

:14:44.:14:45.

the house have allowed curators to reinterpret the interior and these

:14:46.:14:49.

little fragments tell a fascinating tale about the life of the Austin

:14:50.:14:51.

family. -- Jane Austen's family. Specialist decorators and restorers

:14:52.:14:57.

have been working hard to refurbish Jane Austen's home,

:14:58.:14:59.

paying close attention to detail. This wallpaper has been recreated

:15:00.:15:02.

by architectural historians, based on what was left

:15:03.:15:07.

of the original, but it There was a motif in this one

:15:08.:15:10.

which they could not make sense of. And after some puzzling,

:15:11.:15:18.

they realised that there was a manufacturing fault

:15:19.:15:21.

in this paper. This meant it was probably

:15:22.:15:31.

a second, and cheaper. Wallpaper was an expensive

:15:32.:15:33.

and heavily-taxed luxury There was a missing detail,

:15:34.:15:35.

which meant the paper There's a central motif that looks

:15:36.:15:38.

a bit like a little spider. That was meant to

:15:39.:15:43.

have a rosebud there. The person who was hanging the paper

:15:44.:15:47.

didn't have that to go on. If it had been there,

:15:48.:15:50.

he would have understood immediately To commemororate the bicentenary,

:15:51.:15:53.

the museum also has These are two of the treasures,

:16:16.:16:32.

this afternoon and overseeing all that is the curator, Mary, who joins

:16:33.:16:36.

me again now. Tell me a bit more about your plans to celebrate the

:16:37.:16:41.

bison centenary. It is a very important year for the Jane Austin

:16:42.:16:45.

community and the museum. We are delighted with the way the houses

:16:46.:16:48.

looking after two months of redecorating. But we have got plans

:16:49.:16:52.

to do much more in the future. After we have raised the money. This year,

:16:53.:16:58.

we have launched Jane's Fund, a big public appeal for the funds that

:16:59.:17:02.

will allow us to undertake vital repairs, and we will then roll out

:17:03.:17:05.

the redecoration through the house. It is such an old house, I imagine

:17:06.:17:09.

there's a lot of structural work to do as well as decoration. It is,

:17:10.:17:14.

there's a lot of work in different areas of the house and it is a grade

:17:15.:17:17.

one listed building so it needs to be done very carefully. Thank you

:17:18.:17:21.

for joining us. The house reopens after two months tomorrow at

:17:22.:17:28.

10:30am. I'm sure everyone here is ready for an influx of guests keen

:17:29.:17:32.

to see some of the changes that have been made.

:17:33.:17:36.

And Chawton is just one of the locations in the south

:17:37.:17:41.

which will be celebrating Jane Austen's life and work

:17:42.:17:44.

I'm sure you know all the others. And it has a nice tea room.

:17:45.:17:51.

I've been there, very recently. You know all the best

:17:52.:17:54.

tearooms. And where they serve the best cake.

:17:55.:17:59.

Tony is here with the sport. In a moment, we will meet our 85 Rod

:18:00.:18:04.

cricketer, Jean. I'm looking forward to that. A great character who

:18:05.:18:07.

embodies what community sport is all about. But first, Wembley last

:18:08.:18:09.

weekend and more coming. Oxford United have booked

:18:10.:18:13.

another trip to Wembley. They'll play Coventry on April 2nd

:18:14.:18:15.

in the Checkatrade Trophy. The competition was controversial

:18:16.:18:18.

this season as for the first time, Premier League and Championship

:18:19.:18:23.

sides could field Under-23 teams. It led to some farcical moments

:18:24.:18:25.

in the early rounds but ultimately two lower league clubs

:18:26.:18:28.

are in the final as The sweet sound of the final

:18:29.:18:34.

whistles. Oxford United are still in the hunt for promotion from League

:18:35.:18:39.

1, but they already have a date at Wembley in their diaries. They came

:18:40.:18:44.

through a tricky semifinal at Luton, a scrambled effort from Phil Edwards

:18:45.:18:48.

and a deflected shot from Marvin Johnson put the visitors firmly on

:18:49.:18:52.

course for a second successive trip to the National Stadium. I must

:18:53.:18:57.

admit, it's different to last year, it is a fantastic feeling to get

:18:58.:19:00.

there. Last year was more, probably getting there than actually

:19:01.:19:06.

thinking, what we were going to do once we were there. This year, we've

:19:07.:19:09.

got the opportunity to play another showcase final. Now we want to go

:19:10.:19:14.

ahead and win it. It was a nervous night as the Hatters refused to roll

:19:15.:19:19.

over. Isaac Vassell reduced the deficit and then former Oxford

:19:20.:19:21.

striker Danny Hylton equalised with just eight minutes to go. The tie

:19:22.:19:27.

looked set for penalties but United's Magic Johnson still had

:19:28.:19:30.

something left in the box of tricks. I had nothing in my mind other than

:19:31.:19:34.

try to hit the target and I caught it well. Getting to Wembley,

:19:35.:19:38.

arguably the most famous football stadium in the world, what does it

:19:39.:19:42.

mean? It's massive, I've not played there before so it would be good for

:19:43.:19:46.

me but obviously, quite a few of the boys went there last year and it

:19:47.:19:49.
