Tributes to the Oxford author who created Inspector Morse.

:00:00.:00:12.

Also, charged nearly ?1500 for four Ed Sheeran tickets -

:00:13.:00:16.

an Oxfordshire woman tells the Government why

:00:17.:00:18.

And later on - who would you like to drop by on your 87th birthday?

:00:19.:00:25.

Well, for Pam in Sonning, it was her Hollywood heartthrob.

:00:26.:00:40.

Tributes have been paid to Oxford author Colin Dexter

:00:41.:00:44.

He created the character Inspector Morse,

:00:45.:00:50.

which spawned the TV series - and in which he made

:00:51.:00:53.

The actor Kevin Whately said he loved being on set

:00:54.:00:56.

Lewis! Oxford's most famous detective, a character that captured

:00:57.:01:11.

millions. Today Kevin Whately - the man

:01:12.:01:12.

who played Morse's sidekick - We've been lucky to have him for 30

:01:13.:01:25.

years, and 30 years of his wonderful plots and characters and what have

:01:26.:01:32.

you, so it's a of feelings. I said there are two characters we have to

:01:33.:01:37.

have if we do come back, and one of them is going to beat Cavan, and

:01:38.:01:44.

secondly, the city of Oxford. -- Kevin Whately.

:01:45.:01:46.

The Trout pub in Wolvercote featured in a number of Morse episodes.

:01:47.:01:49.

Bosses say it s become a Mecca for fans of the series.

:01:50.:01:54.

There is a massive following for Colin Dexter, I think he was a

:01:55.:02:02.

really influential person and series so everyone comes to see where it

:02:03.:02:07.

was filmed. We have so many fanatics who come in and ask us questions.

:02:08.:02:11.

Colin Dexter was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire

:02:12.:02:14.

He was also given the Freedom of Oxford.

:02:15.:02:20.

Cullen was a delightful man with an emperor sense of humour and his

:02:21.:02:26.

jokes were often about himself as much as anybody else. We gave him

:02:27.:02:32.

the freedom of the city because he was such an important person in

:02:33.:02:35.

drawing attention to Oxford through the Morse series on TV.

:02:36.:02:38.

The Randolf hotel - home of the Morse bar -

:02:39.:02:40.

A statement said Colin would often visit the hotel. Thousands of people

:02:41.:02:54.

come to Oxford every year because of its connections with moss, and

:02:55.:02:59.

places like this bar will make sure he is remembered for years to come.

:03:00.:03:02.

Police investigating a murder in Milton Keynes say they have

:03:03.:03:04.

several new lines of inquiry after an appeal on

:03:05.:03:06.

Hang Lin Leung died 11 days after her house

:03:07.:03:10.

was broken into and ransacked at the end of January.

:03:11.:03:13.

Some of her possessions were found off Weedon Road in Aylesbury.

:03:14.:03:16.

Police believe they may have been thrown from a car.

:03:17.:03:26.

They say they're following a number of new lines of enquiry.

:03:27.:03:31.

Next, getting hold of tickets for sold out events

:03:32.:03:33.

like concerts and the high prices you can be asked to pay online.

:03:34.:03:36.

An Oxfordshire woman has been giving evidence to the Government

:03:37.:03:38.

Claire Turnham, who lives near Witney, was charged nearly

:03:39.:03:42.

?1500 for four Ed Sheeran tickets on the website Viagogo.

:03:43.:03:44.

Ed Sheeran - popular is an understatement.

:03:45.:03:50.

He is currently holding nine of the ten top spots

:03:51.:03:54.

Hardly surprising, then, that tickets for his concerts

:03:55.:03:59.

Viagogo, a secondary selling website, provides a place for fans

:04:00.:04:04.

to buy tickets when they've sold out elsewhere.

:04:05.:04:07.

It said that there were, you know, thousands of people

:04:08.:04:09.

looking at these tickets, I was next in line, and that

:04:10.:04:12.

I had a chance to buy the last four tickets,

:04:13.:04:15.

which I was actually really excited about.

:04:16.:04:16.

But Claire Turnham from Witney's happiness was short-lived.

:04:17.:04:19.

The tickets had been ?263 each, I was unaware of that, but on top,

:04:20.:04:26.

they had added an extra approximately ?350 in fees.

:04:27.:04:32.

She complained to Viagogo and got refunded.

:04:33.:04:35.

Since then, she's started a Facebook group to help hundreds of others

:04:36.:04:38.

At the moment, they can hide behind certain things and it's not great,

:04:39.:04:44.

and that's why there's some confusion and anger.

:04:45.:04:46.

Today, Claire and Ed Sheeran's managements made their case

:04:47.:04:49.

I think there should be a cooling-off period.

:04:50.:04:53.

People should be allowed, particularly under this

:04:54.:04:56.

pressure selling situation, to have the protection

:04:57.:05:00.

of the law which states that if you are in this situation,

:05:01.:05:04.

you have a right to pencil your purchase within

:05:05.:05:07.

Viagogo didn't reply to our request for a response today.

:05:08.:05:15.

They decided not to attend the committee hearing either.

:05:16.:05:22.

A pedestrian is in a critical condition after being hit by a car

:05:23.:05:25.

It happened on Marlborough Street near to

:05:26.:05:28.

Milton Keynes General Hospital on Saturday afternoon.

:05:29.:05:30.

A 53-year-old man was hit by a silver Peugeot 307.

:05:31.:05:32.

More than half the building projects to extend Oxfordshire's schools

:05:33.:05:39.

have missed their deadlines in the past three years.

:05:40.:05:42.

It's led to some schools having to use temporary classrooms

:05:43.:05:44.

and, in some cases, having to say no to extra pupils.

:05:45.:05:48.

Here's our political reporter Bethan Phillips.

:05:49.:05:56.

Lessons are now in full swing in Windmill Primary

:05:57.:05:58.

But to get to this point the school had more than its share of problems.

:05:59.:06:02.

The delays just got longer and longer, so come Christmas 2014

:06:03.:06:05.

there was still no word when building was going to begin,

:06:06.:06:08.

who our contractor would be and by this time, time

:06:09.:06:10.

And this school isn't alone - out of 39 building projects

:06:11.:06:14.

in the past three years that were supposed to provide new places

:06:15.:06:20.

by the start of the school year, only 19 were completed on time.

:06:21.:06:23.

Five extensions took an extra year or more to complete.

:06:24.:06:25.

And in two cases headteachers had to say no to taking

:06:26.:06:28.

It has a lot of impact because you have a class of children

:06:29.:06:34.

who need a classroom, which means you have

:06:35.:06:36.

to put them into a space that is a temporary measure.

:06:37.:06:39.

That's not a great way for any child to start a school year

:06:40.:06:42.

and for teachers not to feel they have the resources

:06:43.:06:44.

they need in that space, and that block of time is a big deal

:06:45.:06:48.

Some say these issues show serious problems with the system.

:06:49.:06:53.

I fear too much of it is down to sheer bad project management.

:06:54.:06:58.

We've been building schools for 150 years.

:06:59.:07:02.

We know the school term starts in September.

:07:03.:07:04.

It should not be rocket science for project management to ensure

:07:05.:07:08.

Oxfordshire County Council has said it's "extremely concerned"

:07:09.:07:14.

Contractor Carillion says it's working closely with the council.

:07:15.:07:22.

Plans have been approved for a ?30 million student

:07:23.:07:26.

accomodation scheme on Oxpens in Oxford city centre.

:07:27.:07:29.

The scheme will create more than 500 new beds.

:07:30.:07:31.

The project alongside the railway would see the demolition

:07:32.:07:34.

of the Oxford Business Centre, but also create commercial

:07:35.:07:37.

Health bosses in Milton Keynes are proposing to limit the number

:07:38.:07:43.

of gastric band operations in a bid to save money.

:07:44.:07:46.

The Milton Keynes Care Commissioning Group only wants

:07:47.:07:52.

to carry out weight loss procedures in exceptional circumstances.

:07:53.:07:54.

The move is part of a wider consultation

:07:55.:07:59.

running this month to save almost ?10 million next year.

:08:00.:08:02.

A Wiltshire farmer's hoping to put kid on the menu in homes

:08:03.:08:05.

Lizzie Dyer from Cricklade gave up her office job and created

:08:06.:08:08.

the Cotswold Kid Meat company four years ago.

:08:09.:08:16.

The meat is low in fat and high in protein -

:08:17.:08:18.

so can it compete with lamb and veal?

:08:19.:08:20.

Katharine Da Costa has been to Lizzie's farm to find out more.

:08:21.:08:23.

These inquisitive billies are being reared on a 30-acre farm

:08:24.:08:25.

in Cricklade near Swindon, but most are killed at birth.

:08:26.:08:28.

That's because although demand for goat s milk and cheese has

:08:29.:08:31.

soared in recent years, there's been no appetite

:08:32.:08:34.

Lizzie Dyer hopes that's about to change.

:08:35.:08:39.

I was shocked that it's so widely eaten on the continent but not here,

:08:40.:08:44.

and then when I started to look into it I realised that these

:08:45.:08:48.

billies were being born on the dairies and were being

:08:49.:08:51.

dispatched at birth and I thought hang on, we can find a nice little

:08:52.:08:55.

blueprint here to rear a by-product sustainably and produce

:08:56.:09:03.

a good-quality meat at the end of it.

:09:04.:09:06.

Lizzie started with 20 kids four years ago

:09:07.:09:08.

It's already the largest free-range kid farm in the country.

:09:09.:09:12.

As well as producing the meat, the skin is sent to an organic

:09:13.:09:16.

tannery and made into rugs and cushion covers.

:09:17.:09:19.

These little guys are just ten days old.

:09:20.:09:22.

They'll live here on the farm outside in the fields for nine

:09:23.:09:26.

months until they're sold for meat, and it's particularly healthy meat -

:09:27.:09:30.

lower in cholesterol than chicken and higher in iron than beef.

:09:31.:09:36.

Lizzie's selling direct to a growing number of customers and businesses

:09:37.:09:40.

across the Cotswolds, including here at The Wild

:09:41.:09:42.

I'll break the shoulders down and the neck and I'll braise

:09:43.:09:48.

that for a little while, and then with the leg

:09:49.:09:50.

and the saddles, they're so delicate and delicious,

:09:51.:09:53.

you can just grill them and serve them like that.

:09:54.:09:56.

So it's not like the old goat you think of in a curry that

:09:57.:09:59.

No, the kid that Lizzie's breeding is so delicious and the flavour

:10:00.:10:04.

So as they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

:10:05.:10:10.

Here we go, so Lizzie's kid, lovely anchovy and rosemary,

:10:11.:10:16.

Go on, Lizzie, tuck in, it smells amazing.

:10:17.:10:24.

The rosemary lifts up the kid flavour.

:10:25.:10:30.

The anchovy matches with it and it's soft and tender.

:10:31.:10:37.

As her business takes off, Lizzie hopes kid meat will one

:10:38.:10:40.

day be a firm favourite on the Great British menu.

:10:41.:10:50.

Keep watching to find out about George Clooney's surprise visit to a

:10:51.:10:59.

care home. I'll be back at 10:30pm. Stay weather is because Terry has

:11:00.:11:11.

learned has all the sport from Poole. We were the football club on

:11:12.:11:18.

the rotor summer, up or down, all staying with the status quo. The

:11:19.:11:24.

Biddick lament Poole Town face is coming up -- the predicament.

:11:25.:11:35.

The jury in the trial of a Hampshire businessman charged

:11:36.:11:38.

with the manslaughter of one of his closest friends in a boating

:11:39.:11:41.

incident has gone out to consider its verdict.

:11:42.:11:44.

Ryan McKinlay from Gosport was killed when the TurboJet Rib

:11:45.:11:47.

driven by 34-year-old Aaron Brown collided with the swimming platform

:11:48.:11:49.

of his yacht off the Isle of Wight in June 2015.

:11:50.:11:52.

His hired skipper, Paul Carey, seen here piloting the Rib

:11:53.:11:55.

before the fatal accident, and outside Winchester Crown Court

:11:56.:11:57.

today in the blue shirt, was found not guilty of driving too

:11:58.:12:00.

fast in contravention of shipping regulations.

:12:01.:12:04.

Protestors led by a woman from Dorset went to Downing Street

:12:05.:12:06.

today to hand in a petition demanding that rules

:12:07.:12:09.

surrounding the sale of static mobile homes be changed.

:12:10.:12:12.

They're angry that under current arrangements,

:12:13.:12:16.

owners have to hand over 10% of their home's value to the site

:12:17.:12:19.

They say the rule is outdated and needs changing.

:12:20.:12:25.

All these people behind me, and thousands over the country, are

:12:26.:12:28.

literally trapped in their homes by this 10% commission charge.

:12:29.:12:35.

That they have to give to the park owner.

:12:36.:12:37.

Basically, they cannot move on because at the end of the day, if

:12:38.:12:41.

they try to buy something different to what they already have,

:12:42.:12:44.

it's got to be inferior because they don't have the money after parting

:12:45.:12:47.

There's to be another rail strike by the RMT union

:12:48.:12:53.

The action will take place on Saturday the 8th of April,

:12:54.:12:57.

The dispute is over staffing and the role of conductors.

:12:58.:13:02.

Southern's owners had offered fresh talks if industrial

:13:03.:13:05.

King Alfred the great's statue, the giant lion, and the Charles Dickens

:13:06.:13:23.

Memorial, all public monuments that serve as artworks for all. But as

:13:24.:13:27.

tastes change and text and he develops, what does public art look

:13:28.:13:33.

like in the digital age? Our reporter is live, where a new piece

:13:34.:13:37.

of art has been unveiled. Do we call this a monument statue or sculpture

:13:38.:13:44.

or what? It is very, very modern. There is me waving, I am not the

:13:45.:13:51.

piece of art. This is here. The man behind it is Adam. You are a local

:13:52.:13:57.

boy. What is this, and how does it work? It as a digital canvas wrapped

:13:58.:14:02.

around the building. We are delighted to have this opportunity

:14:03.:14:06.

to show a very playful piece that picks up on the members of the

:14:07.:14:11.

public's movements and translates them into abstract forms for them to

:14:12.:14:17.

interact with and get lost in and explore. And let go of anything. Why

:14:18.:14:23.

have you didn't? We wanted to take the normal experience of the

:14:24.:14:28.

interactive part display you find that an art gallery and take it onto

:14:29.:14:33.

the street so everyone can enjoy it, everyone in the community can

:14:34.:14:37.

experience a playful, engaging art piece that asks questions about

:14:38.:14:41.

space and how we cure rate our public area, and something that is

:14:42.:14:46.

interesting in the ever-changing landscape of our wonderful Worthing.

:14:47.:14:49.

It has even got to be reporters excited. Let's bringing Caryn, you

:14:50.:14:58.

from the Worthing trusts. Why did you get involved? We are a charity

:14:59.:15:05.

which works with local council, and it is exciting, it will help change

:15:06.:15:09.

the way people look at Worthing, get people down there and have lower,

:15:10.:15:12.

but also flag of the digital economy. It is a great example of

:15:13.:15:19.

it. It will engage people. The main thing is to come and play. And have

:15:20.:15:23.

a debate about digital art, what is art, digital art? Get involved. It

:15:24.:15:35.

got the thumbs up from these, what about these people here? Do you like

:15:36.:15:43.

it? Yes! Sally, you can see for yourself until the 2nd of April in

:15:44.:15:48.

Worthing. Great to see you waving, I've thought it was you I saw, I

:15:49.:15:55.

could recognise the gloves. You know me too well.

:15:56.:15:58.

Onto sport, and tonight Tony's at the club that doesn't quite know

:15:59.:16:01.

what it's short or long term future is, despite success on the field.

:16:02.:16:04.

Let's join him now at the Tatnam ground, home of Poole Town.

:16:05.:16:14.

By the way, no gloves. Let's get on with the sport. Interesting story,

:16:15.:16:20.

we are getting towards the end of the football season and fans are

:16:21.:16:24.

dreaming about promotion. On paper, in theory, that would be the

:16:25.:16:29.

scenario for Poole Town, going very well, winter nights and they're up

:16:30.:16:32.

into the play-off places. But this is a club which has come a long way

:16:33.:16:38.

very quickly, all the way to the Hampshire leagues and playing

:16:39.:16:42.

National League now. The ground isn't actually up to National League

:16:43.:16:45.

South standard. You can see they worked hard, but it is resembling

:16:46.:16:51.

the end of the school field. They have a big inspection next week from

:16:52.:16:54.

the National League. If they don't meet the requirements, they could be

:16:55.:16:58.

relegated, and all that at a time when putting so much evidence to try

:16:59.:17:02.

and get the club promoted. The improvements have been going on, we

:17:03.:17:06.

can see this bit of terracing which was opened at the weekend for their

:17:07.:17:12.

game here, a 3-3 draw. But they need to keep working to try and get this

:17:13.:17:16.

ground sorted. Otherwise, they could be in the creases duration of going

:17:17.:17:24.

promotion and ending up relegated. I spoke to the manager and asked them

:17:25.:17:28.

how he's kept the players' form up. At the start of the season there was

:17:29.:17:31.

a certain amount of apprehension as to what the league would bring and

:17:32.:17:35.

how we would cope in the league, and the players have been exceptional.

:17:36.:17:40.

To be in the decision we are in, within touching distance of the

:17:41.:17:44.

play-offs with six weeks is still to go, it's been a monumental effort. I

:17:45.:17:50.

must be honest, it's taken me by surprise, but they deserve an awful

:17:51.:17:55.

lot of credit. And against the backdrop of this uncertainty over

:17:56.:17:58.

the stage and your state is in the National League, to stay in this

:17:59.:18:03.

division, to get promoted, the fear of relegation, how have you managed

:18:04.:18:09.

to deal with it? Players are players insofar as they want to play

:18:10.:18:12.

football and concentrate on winning matches. It is easier for them, or

:18:13.:18:17.

at more straightforward to concentrate on the job in hand. The

:18:18.:18:21.

uncertainty around the club is not great in terms of dealing with

:18:22.:18:27.

sponsorship and trying to get things organised. And planning ahead, it

:18:28.:18:32.

just makes life difficult. I will be pleased when the inspection has

:18:33.:18:36.

taken place, and hopefully it will go our way. How confident are you

:18:37.:18:41.

you will get the green light and the club can stay at this level, if not

:18:42.:18:47.

go to the next one? I know there's been a huge effort from everyone.

:18:48.:18:51.

The fund raising has been difficult and a lot of people have stepped

:18:52.:18:55.

forward in terms of that. There has been the practicalities of getting

:18:56.:18:59.

stuff done in a short timescale, so there's a lot of people doing a lot

:19:00.:19:04.

of work to achieve that. From what I am told, we are positive about the

:19:05.:19:08.

inspection, but it is one of those things, until that happens and you

:19:09.:19:13.

get the tech in the right box, there is uncertainty. Yes, it is fingers

:19:14.:19:23.

crossed for his team. Onto the pitch, we are in March and look at

:19:24.:19:26.

the quality of the page, is fantastic. They've worked so hard.

:19:27.:19:31.

Behind the goal, that terracing, it is always had a covered stand but it

:19:32.:19:36.

is proper terracing now. Things going well for Poole Town, now they

:19:37.:19:39.

just need to prove they can get through the inspection.

:19:40.:19:43.

Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse says

:19:44.:19:45.

he will fulfil a "life-long ambition" if he makes his debut

:19:46.:19:48.

The 22-year-old has been called-up to the full England

:19:49.:19:56.

squad for the first time, alongside team-mate Nathan Redmond.

:19:57.:19:58.

He's now hoping that manager Gareth Southgate will involve him

:19:59.:20:00.

in the friendly against Germany in Dortmund tomorrow night.

:20:01.:20:04.

Firstly I am ready. The manager thinks that as well, otherwise he

:20:05.:20:10.

wouldn't have included me. It'll be a great occasion if I do so. I'm

:20:11.:20:15.

just looking forward to enjoying the week and making the most out of my

a little careful about activities But Pat Adams from Sonning has

:20:31.:20:33.

thrown caution to the wind. As she approached her birthday,

she let it be known that a visit from a certain high profile

Pat. She is grey. Now I know what happened to the birthday flowers I
