In tonight's programme: The fight against firearms.

:00:00.:00:00.

Thames Valley Police deal with three gun crimes every week.

:00:07.:00:09.

We'll hear claims that growing numbers of children are getting

:00:10.:00:11.

Also: Given ketamine to treat depression.

:00:12.:00:17.

Why doctors in Oxford want the drug, that's used as a horse tranquiliser,

:00:18.:00:20.

Thames Valley Police has to deal with at least three crimes

:00:21.:00:47.

A BBC investigation has revealed that between January and October

:00:48.:00:51.

last year "firearms" were involved in 158 crimes.

:00:52.:00:53.

A former gang member, who set up a charity to help young

:00:54.:00:55.

people away from gangs, claims children as young as ten

:00:56.:00:58.

The latest weekly haul of guns seized by, or surrendered to,

:00:59.:01:06.

Around 2,000 weapons come to this armoury each year but,

:01:07.:01:11.

despite all of them being destroyed, police have still had to deal

:01:12.:01:15.

with more than 1,000 gun crimes since 2011.

:01:16.:01:19.

This investigation took into account all crimes

:01:20.:01:22.

in which a gun was present, regardless of whether

:01:23.:01:24.

The most commonly used weapons were this, a rifle, a shot gun,

:01:25.:01:30.

however the biggest problem for Thames Valley Police

:01:31.:01:33.

are the moment are these, BB guns or replicas which,

:01:34.:01:37.

as you can see, look a lot like the real thing.

:01:38.:01:43.

Certainly in recent times we have had some good successes

:01:44.:01:47.

when targeting serious and organised criminality and we have managed

:01:48.:01:50.

to seize not only automatic weapons but also ammunition for those

:01:51.:01:53.

So to take those off the streets is saving lives.

:01:54.:01:57.

In the year ending March 2016 there were almost 8,400 firearm

:01:58.:02:02.

This figure is significantly lower than knife crimes,

:02:03.:02:12.

which saw 20,000 more incidents for same period.

:02:13.:02:18.

Gun crime makes up a small proportion of overall crime,

:02:19.:02:20.

So how does Thames Valley compare nationally?

:02:21.:02:23.

It is way below the national average.

:02:24.:02:25.

I think it was about four gun crimes per 100,000 population.

:02:26.:02:31.

That is the scale we are talking about in Thames Valley compared

:02:32.:02:34.

There may be pockets in Thames Valley where

:02:35.:02:42.

And it's these pockets causing concern.

:02:43.:02:47.

In 2007 charity Gangsline was launched to discuss

:02:48.:02:50.

The man behind it is former gang member Sheldon Thomas.

:02:51.:02:57.

You've got to understand where we are talking

:02:58.:02:59.

about the Thames Valley, everywhere has a gangs problem,

:03:00.:03:03.

and we have to stop using geography as trying to,

:03:04.:03:07.

well, they've got the problem there, we haven't got the problem.

:03:08.:03:11.

I was not able to hold a gun until I was about,

:03:12.:03:16.

These guys can get guns now at ten, 11, 12.

:03:17.:03:21.

That is the reason why I say that it is worse now

:03:22.:03:24.

than it was when I was around about 20 years ago.

:03:25.:03:30.

In a response to serious and organised crime

:03:31.:03:32.

Thames Valley Police have now launched Stronghold,

:03:33.:03:33.

a scheme encouraging residents to take ownership of their local

:03:34.:03:38.

Police say they're extremely concerned for a missing

:03:39.:03:58.

Emily Henslowe from Highworth was last seen leaving

:03:59.:04:03.

for Warneford school this morning but she never arrived.

:04:04.:04:05.

Officers along with search and rescue crews and the helicopter

:04:06.:04:07.

An inquest has opened into the death of a five-year-old boy found dead

:04:08.:04:12.

Police launched a murder investigation after the body

:04:13.:04:15.

of Tyler Warmington was found at Bromsgrove Cottages.

:04:16.:04:17.

A 40-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of murder was released

:04:18.:04:21.

The inquest is due to resume in July.

:04:22.:04:24.

Could taking ketamine help treat severe depression?

:04:25.:04:26.

The drug is known as a horse tranquiliser.

:04:27.:04:29.

It's also taken by some people as a party drug although it's

:04:30.:04:32.

Now a study in Oxford has found ketamine has helped some people

:04:33.:04:37.

who haven't responded to other treatments for depression.

:04:38.:04:40.

There's a call for it to be prescribed more widely in the NHS.

:04:41.:04:44.

This is the best she has felt in seven years.

:04:45.:04:51.

Depression and anorexia took their toll but taking part

:04:52.:04:53.

in this NHS drug trial has stopped her from feeling

:04:54.:04:56.

as if she is drowning in her own thoughts.

:04:57.:04:58.

I can take my kids to their friends' birthday parties, go on the odd play

:04:59.:05:06.

date every now and then, actually be present in my kids'

:05:07.:05:10.

lives, which is the most important thing to me.

:05:11.:05:15.

Helen is among the first patients to have this experimental treatment.

:05:16.:05:20.

Doctors can prescribe ketamine as a licensed drug.

:05:21.:05:23.

All the patients in this trial had moderate or severe depression

:05:24.:05:26.

and other treatment had failed but 42 of the 101 patients felt much

:05:27.:05:32.

The doctors in Oxford hope other hospitals will take

:05:33.:05:37.

up their approach and contribute to a central register

:05:38.:05:41.

so side-effects can be monitored, but the Royal College

:05:42.:05:43.

of Psychiatrists is urging caution, saying there

:05:44.:05:46.

are still significant gaps in our knowledge about ketamine.

:05:47.:05:50.

We still do not know what the most effective dose will be,

:05:51.:05:53.

what the most effective dose regime will be, and we do not know

:05:54.:05:57.

what the long-term potential harms of using ketamine are,

:05:58.:06:01.

so I think we have to do more studies before

:06:02.:06:04.

Patients in Oxford receive the drug through a drip in carefully

:06:05.:06:10.

The doctors here believe thousands more people could benefit from this

:06:11.:06:16.

treatment but they warned ketamine should only be taken under

:06:17.:06:19.

Earlier I spoke to Dr Rupert McShane who has been leading the research

:06:20.:06:27.

into the use of ketamine to treat depression.

:06:28.:06:30.

I asked him why a drug used as a horse tranquiliser would help

:06:31.:06:33.

It's actually also used as an anaesthetic.

:06:34.:06:36.

It is the safest anaesthetic in the world, very widely used.

:06:37.:06:39.

It is used in depression, probably because we have

:06:40.:06:42.

We found that it works acutely but the real challenge

:06:43.:06:46.

is to maintain the effect once that has started.

:06:47.:06:49.

When you gave the drug to the patients you gave it

:06:50.:06:52.

to them intravenously, which people might be surprised

:06:53.:06:54.

So we used an infusion of about 40 minutes,

:06:55.:06:59.

and people feel very peculiar when they are having the infusion,

:07:00.:07:02.

but those side effects wear off within about five minutes of the end

:07:03.:07:06.

And then they would come back to be topped up

:07:07.:07:10.

So what we have been doing is just trying to see how we can

:07:11.:07:15.

maintain that effect, and that does involve

:07:16.:07:17.

For some people that means keeping on with ketamine.

:07:18.:07:23.

For others, what we have found is that some people seem to do well

:07:24.:07:26.

enough that they can stop the ketamine.

:07:27.:07:29.

But the majority I have to say have not benefited from it.

:07:30.:07:34.

But because we are treating a population that have

:07:35.:07:37.

resistant depression, nothing else seemed to work,

:07:38.:07:41.

What about the concerns raised by the Royal College

:07:42.:07:49.

of Psychiatrists that you do not know enough about the long-term

:07:50.:07:52.

We do not know all the long-term effects, and that is really

:07:53.:07:59.

What we think we need to be doing is collecting

:08:00.:08:02.

I think it is really important to understand that ketamine

:08:03.:08:12.

is actually a licensed drug already and in the US what is

:08:13.:08:15.

happening is that ketamine clinics are starting up,

:08:16.:08:17.

so what we want to do is to actually monitor all the treatments that

:08:18.:08:20.

are given in this country and also to harness the information

:08:21.:08:23.

that we get from those treatments so that we can work out who to treat

:08:24.:08:26.

Some people use ketamine recreationally, it is known

:08:27.:08:29.

It is illegal to buy it on the streets.

:08:30.:08:33.

How much concern is there about people who hear about this

:08:34.:08:36.

research and may feel depressed and may try to self-medicate?

:08:37.:08:38.

That would be a really silly thing to do.

:08:39.:08:40.

It would be really silly because we have certainly known

:08:41.:08:44.

of people who have tried doing that and it has

:08:45.:08:47.

simply got out of control, and that is a real risk.

:08:48.:08:49.

This is not the end of your research.

:08:50.:08:51.

What we really want to do is get this registry sorted out

:08:52.:08:58.

so that we can monitor all the treatments that

:08:59.:09:00.

I think it would be helpful if there were a few other specialist

:09:01.:09:06.

centres that were interested in taking it on.

:09:07.:09:08.

Bicester library's been celebrating its first year

:09:09.:09:15.

in its new home with a visit from children's

:09:16.:09:17.

The new library's attracted 3,000 members since it opened last April.

:09:18.:09:26.

As well as providing more space for books and public computers,

:09:27.:09:29.

the library hosts regular children's activities, a local history group

:09:30.:09:31.

You know, there are so many things going on that the library has had

:09:32.:09:36.

to be very proactive in attracting people and doing modern

:09:37.:09:38.

It is not a case of libraries being shh, quiet.

:09:39.:09:43.

They are noisy exciting places and that is how

:09:44.:09:46.

they should be and that is how they will attract people.

:09:47.:09:50.

A young boy has raised more than ?30,000 for an Oxfordshire

:09:51.:09:53.

charity, after a story about him and his support dog

:09:54.:09:56.

13 year old Joel Sayer is autistic and says his world

:09:57.:10:03.

changed when Caddie, who was trained by Dogs for Good,

:10:04.:10:05.

Their friendship captured the hearts of the nation after they reached

:10:06.:10:14.

the final of the Friends for Life competition at Crufts this year.

:10:15.:10:17.

He's more than a friend, he's a guardian angel for me.

:10:18.:10:29.

After people saw their inspirational story, Joel set about raising money

:10:30.:10:34.

to give another child a friend for life, like he has in Caddie.

:10:35.:10:37.

He's now raised enough to sponsor another dog through training.

:10:38.:10:41.

At that time before we got Caddie, we had the diagnosis,

:10:42.:10:44.

we had Joel as he was, but there was nobody listening

:10:45.:10:46.

To think that someone else in that situation is going to get the light

:10:47.:10:51.

at the end of the tunnel like we had with Caddie is fantastic.

:10:52.:10:58.

Caddie came into Joel's life through the charity Dogs

:10:59.:11:00.

They train dogs to support people with physical disabilities,

:11:01.:11:04.

learning difficulties, and conditions such

:11:05.:11:06.

For some of the children the social interaction,

:11:07.:11:10.

particularly children with autism, is quite difficult and yet

:11:11.:11:14.

dogs don't judge us in the same way as humans do.

:11:15.:11:17.

So building a relationship with a dog is a much more

:11:18.:11:20.

neutral focus for the child and through building that

:11:21.:11:24.

relationship with the dog they learn other social skills they can take

:11:25.:11:27.

Dogs can really give children the opportunity for children

:11:28.:11:33.

And as their friendship continues to grow so does Joel's confidence.

:11:34.:11:45.

It was eyes to the skies at one Abingdon school this afternoon.

:11:46.:12:01.

Much to the delight of the pupils, parachutists from The Royal Logistic

:12:02.:12:04.

Corps Silver Stars Display Team landed on the Larkmead

:12:05.:12:06.

They'd taken off from nearby Dalton Barracks.

:12:07.:12:11.

It was a chance for the army to meet the local community while carrying

:12:12.:12:15.

The action from last night's Oxford United match is coming up.

:12:16.:12:22.

With the rest of South Today, here's Allen Sinclair.

crimes for every 100,000 - that's below the

:12:30.:12:31.

Joel Campbell is in Dorset for the launch of a new exhibition. We will

:12:32.:12:42.

hear from some of those who fought in these tanks and others who found

:12:43.:12:48.

themselves at the sight of the rest of the Tiger family.

:12:49.:12:55.

A soldier who murdered his former girlfriend at her Bournemouth

:12:56.:12:57.

home has been sentenced to life in prison.

:12:58.:12:59.

Jay Nava, who's 27, will serve a minimum of 21 years behind bars.

:13:00.:13:05.

He was found guilty of stabbing 26-year-old Natasha Wake 11 times

:13:06.:13:08.

Academics from Portsmouth have looked for the first time at the

:13:09.:13:22.

effect on social media of children running away from home. Around

:13:23.:13:27.

140,000 under 18 go missing from the UK each year. A report says

:13:28.:13:32.

publicity appeals trying to find them can remain online for years

:13:33.:13:35.

leaving a negative aftermath difficult to shake off. It suggests

:13:36.:13:40.

children need better protection from a digital footprint and possibly

:13:41.:13:42.

asking old sites to remove stories. Bournemouth's unbeaten run is now

:13:43.:13:52.

five games in the top flight. Tony, they are going great. I was a

:13:53.:14:01.

bit worried about them a couple of months ago. Another valuable point

:14:02.:14:07.

in the Premier league last night. Before kick-off...

:14:08.:14:13.

Anfield remembered the 28th anniversary of the Hillsborough

:14:14.:14:19.

were in front early on as Benik Afobe capitalised

:14:20.:14:26.

on this error, Bournemouth had to show their character though,

:14:27.:14:28.

Phillippe Coutinho levelled and then after half time, Divovk Orgi

:14:29.:14:30.

But Eddie Howe's side dug deep and in form Joshua King grabbed

:14:31.:14:34.

I thought we showed a really good mentality in the game.

:14:35.:14:38.

I thought we defended excellently at times.

:14:39.:14:40.

In the end I don't think anyone can argue we got the draw.

:14:41.:14:43.

I was at St Mary's last night, where Southampton produced

:14:44.:14:46.

an impressive second half display to end Crystal Palace's

:14:47.:14:48.

but there was some new turf on the Saints penalty spot.

:14:49.:14:55.

Palace took the lead with a fine goal from Christian Benteke

:14:56.:14:59.

Palace complained vocally about the equaliser from Nathan Redmond

:15:00.:15:01.

after an apparent push by Steven Davies on Wilf Zaha.

:15:02.:15:07.

In a second half full of chances, Palace hit a post before

:15:08.:15:09.

Maya Yoshida got the last touch to Redmond's cross.

:15:10.:15:12.

Just a minute or so later, James Ward-Prowse competed a fine

:15:13.:15:15.

move to seal a win which lifts Saints to 10th,

:15:16.:15:19.

Where you aggrieved at the nature of Southampton's equaliser?

:15:20.:15:30.

Assistant referee's totally out of order.

:15:31.:15:34.

It is not nice going behind in the game but I

:15:35.:15:37.

think it shows the character we have got in the dressing room and the way

:15:38.:15:40.

the fans got behind us, you know, they really spurred us on.

:15:41.:15:43.

Oxford's promotion hopes were damaged by defeat against Fleetwood

:15:44.:15:47.

last night. But conceded the early goal. The visitors are now third and

:15:48.:15:53.

went back in front through Ashley Eastern and scored a third goal late

:15:54.:15:55.

in the game, as well. In a year's time we'll be

:15:56.:15:58.

into the first few days of competition in the Commonwealth

:15:59.:16:01.

Games. And two Bournemouth-based beach

:16:02.:16:02.

volleyball players hope to be bidding for gold in the inaugural

:16:03.:16:04.

staging of the sport at the Games. Jake Sheaf and Chris Gregory play

:16:05.:16:07.

on the international circuit but missed the Olympics last year

:16:08.:16:10.

when Chris was injured, so they're determined not to miss

:16:11.:16:12.

out on another big event. Think of beach volleyball, think

:16:13.:16:24.

Sun, sand and sea. In this case it is under a roof in Bournemouth. For

:16:25.:16:28.

Jake and Chris it is training. This hard work should result in a place

:16:29.:16:34.

in the England team at the Commonwealth Games were beach

:16:35.:16:38.

volleyball makes its debut. It is huge for the sport. The Commonwealth

:16:39.:16:41.

Games is highly recognised as an event in England. Everybody watches

:16:42.:16:46.

it as they do the Olympic Games. Having beach volleyball there will

:16:47.:16:50.

put it on the map a bit more. And hopefully bringing a medal home will

:16:51.:16:53.

make the country proud of having a beach volleyball team. The pair

:16:54.:16:57.

still work part-time to support their sporting endeavours, and being

:16:58.:17:01.

a close partnership is not without challenges. We have clashes

:17:02.:17:08.

sometimes. And I think when the dynamic is good if those naturally

:17:09.:17:10.

and sometimes one thing outweighs the other but on the court, we share

:17:11.:17:15.

captaincy sometimes, and depending on who is under pressure, somebody

:17:16.:17:18.

will take the lead over the other. Aggressive. You had to adapt always

:17:19.:17:22.

in situations in any type of sport and find a way to win. That is what

:17:23.:17:30.

we try to do. Jake and Chris have a punishing schedule ahead. Up to 12

:17:31.:17:33.

world tour events around the globe. They have to sustain their world

:17:34.:17:37.

ranking to make sure they get their places at the Commonwealth Games. I

:17:38.:17:42.

think we are going for gold. I don't think anything... We are going to

:17:43.:17:47.

win the thing, those of our aspirations. We are going to be

:17:48.:17:52.

working towards that. The Gold Coast will host 23 sports at the 21st

:17:53.:17:57.

Commonwealth Games. These beach buddies could bring a slice of gold

:20:09.:20:12.

after D-Day. When we heard it on the radio, there was a tiger around, we

:20:13.:20:15.

were scared. We knew what it could do. TRANSLATION: It was a very

:20:16.:20:20.

impressive tank. Much more advanced than other designs. I was pleased to

:20:21.:20:25.

operate it. It was the bees knees when it came to technology. Such was

:20:26.:20:31.

the fear of the Tiger in Dorset, Britain developed a special version

:20:32.:20:35.

of the American Sherman tank, squeezing in an extra powerful

:20:36.:20:39.

British gun into the turret. Ken helped to accrue one of the

:20:40.:20:45.

so-called Sherman firefly is. I was in action when one of the fireflys

:20:46.:20:50.

knocked out three of these things in seven minutes. It was not a

:20:51.:20:57.

one-sided story. The man in the Tiger Tank was still in danger.

:20:58.:21:03.

TRANSLATION: Even in a tiger you always had fear for your life. You

:21:04.:21:06.

felt vulnerable. Those who said they were not frightened were lying. The

:21:07.:21:14.

Tiger still draws the crowds. For these men, who knew it on the

:21:15.:21:18.

battlefield, it ties them together still. It was a secret guilt of

:21:19.:21:24.

those who had been in the front line and therefore new when a man was

:21:25.:21:29.

surrendering, you were probably responsible for doing to his

:21:30.:21:34.

comrades what he had been doing to our comrades. TRANSLATION: It is a

:21:35.:21:39.

shame we could not have this relationship before. We are all

:21:40.:21:42.

comrades now. Everything else is forgotten. I am with David, the

:21:43.:21:53.

curator at this museum. Was this such a fierce opponent as our own

:21:54.:21:57.

commanders think it was? It was certainly impressive. A good thing

:21:58.:22:00.

brought the British and the allies is that they never made that many of

:22:01.:22:06.

these famous Tiger Tanks. They were too few to make a difference,

:22:07.:22:10.

luckily. We know they were not perfect. Look behind us here. One of

:22:11.:22:13.

the once you have got here for this show is actually effectively a

:22:14.:22:18.

prototype of one of the versions which did not work at all, the

:22:19.:22:22.

elephant here. They were notoriously unreliable. A lot of them broke

:22:23.:22:27.

down. Not that many were made in the production runs. Thankfully, even

:22:28.:22:32.

though they look big and impressive and with the audience everybody

:22:33.:22:38.

knows they are called Tiger Tanks, fortunately for the Allies they do

:22:39.:22:41.

not do that much damage on the Western front. We are so lucky of

:22:42.:22:45.

course having a range of them here so everybody can see them and see

:22:46.:22:51.

the idea. You can understand why the crews were frightened of them. The

:22:52.:22:54.

chances of meeting one, honestly in wartime, fairly thin. Thank you,

:22:55.:23:00.

David. These tanks will be here for the rest of the summer and beyond.

:23:01.:23:04.

STUDIO: Thank you, Joe. He was in his element! A boyhood dream

:23:05.:23:10.

realised. Alexis had joined us on the sofa. Lovely day again.

:23:11.:23:15.

The good news is it is warming up for the weekend. Sunday potentially

:23:16.:23:20.

the hottest day with a high are potentially 21, 20 two. Some unusual

:23:21.:23:28.

weather photos. This was photographed by Chris in Winslow in

:23:29.:23:33.

Buckinghamshire. A vertical shaft of light formed when sunlight reflects

:23:34.:23:37.

from the services of ice crystals associated with high-level clouds

:23:38.:23:42.

such as Cirrus. This was captured in Portsmouth by Maureen. Thank you.

:23:43.:23:48.

And one more, in Weymouth, taken earlier today, this is the sun

:23:49.:23:51.

pillar here. Clear skies overnight. Chilly temperatures courtesy of

:23:52.:23:57.

clear skies and light wind. Temperatures falling away. In the

:23:58.:24:01.

countryside we could get down to two Celsius, in towns and cities, those

:24:02.:24:07.

of 7-9. First thing this morning, at Bournemouth airport, around 0.5

:24:08.:24:11.

Celsius, similar first thing tomorrow morning, we could have. A

:24:12.:24:15.

lot of sunshine on the tomorrow. Maybe cloudier than today.

:24:16.:24:20.

Particularly further north and east. Generally in the sunshine

:24:21.:24:23.

temperatures up to around 14, may be 15 and even 16 Celsius. Similar to

:24:24.:24:28.

what we had today, especially for cell third spot. Wind light and

:24:29.:24:32.

variable. Similar damages to deny. -- similar spots. Temperatures in

:24:33.:24:38.

the countryside could get down to three or four Celsius. This is in

:24:39.:24:43.

towns and cities. Over the weekend, drawing in warm air from the near

:24:44.:24:47.

continent. We can see high-pressure starting to pull away towards the

:24:48.:24:51.

east. That means we develop a southerly breeze. Fairly light in

:24:52.:24:54.

the course of Saturday. Warm air moving in on Saturday afternoon. On

:24:55.:24:59.

Saturday, ten bridges in the high teens in Celsius. On the coast with

:25:00.:25:05.

sea breeze it will feel fresher. -- temperatures in the high teens.

:25:06.:25:09.

Maybe 14 or 15 at best. Looking at the weekend as a whole, sunny

:25:10.:25:12.

spells, Chile each morning and maybe a touch of frost each morning. Warm

:25:13.:25:19.

on Sunday. Could go up to 21 or even 22 Celsius. Outlook for the rest of

:25:20.:25:22.

the week and into the weekend and next week when it gets cooler.

:25:23.:25:27.

Tomorrow, lots of sunshine, lovely conditions over the weekend, a high

:25:28.:25:31.

of 21 Celsius on Sunday. A warm southerly breeze, fairly light,

:25:32.:25:36.

bringing temperatures into the low 20s in Celsius. All changing next

:25:37.:25:40.

week. A cold front moving in on Sunday night making conditions

:25:41.:25:44.

fresher on Monday, back to the seasonal average. I do, a lot to

:25:45.:25:49.

look forward to. You might remember at school you might have had a class

:25:50.:25:54.

pet, gerbils, rabbits, perhaps. School pupils in Berkshire have been

:25:55.:25:59.

looking after trout! It is part of a major project where schools were

:26:00.:26:02.

given hundreds of trout by a conservation group. Tom Pett work

:26:03.:26:06.

went to reading-macro to find out more. You remember what a brown

:26:07.:26:10.

trout nest is called? -- reading-macro. A school of fish in a

:26:11.:26:19.

tank in a classroom. -- Reading. Children took delivery of these eggs

:26:20.:26:22.

in January. They are now ready to be released into the wild but the

:26:23.:26:25.

journey has not been without jeopardy. All the trout was sucked

:26:26.:26:31.

up into the filter. But some of them survived. How many do you have left?

:26:32.:26:40.

Yesterday the teacher said we had 13. How many did you start with?

:26:41.:26:45.

About 100. It is tougher in the wild. Just 5% of brown trout

:26:46.:26:49.

survived more than one year. It is time to say goodbye to these fish,

:26:50.:26:55.

one by one. Goodbye. Are you sad to see it go? Yes. What was the best

:26:56.:27:02.

part about looking after them? Probably learning about them. Very

:27:03.:27:05.

nice to see children that might not have visited a river or ever thought

:27:06.:27:09.

what lives in it, nice to introduce them to something new. Maybe in

:27:10.:27:13.

future with their parents and grandparents they will return to

:27:14.:27:16.

that part of river. This tributary is now home to the Ridgeway brown

:27:17.:27:20.

trout. After Easter the children are getting eels.

:27:21.:27:26.

Wiping their trout on its way! It is time for us to say goodbye, as well.

:27:27.:27:34.

The next news is here on BBC One at eight o'clock and more at 10.30. We

:27:35.:27:38.

are back tomorrow. We hope you can join us again. Have a good evening.

:27:39.:27:40.

Good night. Stacey and Chris are preparing for

:27:41.:27:53.

marriage by spending a few days living alone with

:27:54.:27:55.

their in-laws to be, and asking them all kinds of

:27:56.:27:58.

questions. Did you get a kiss on

:27:59.:28:00.

the first date? No. What does their in-laws' marriage

:28:01.:28:03.

tell them about each other's I expect you'll want to become

:28:04.:28:05.

a schoolmaster, sir. That's what most of the gentlemen

:28:06.:28:14.

does that get sent down for indecent behaviour.
