The Government's being urged to review how much funding

:00:08.:00:52.

it's giving Oxfordshire's GPs, amid fears of an "imminent crisis".

:00:53.:00:54.

Health bosses in the county applied for ?50 million

:00:55.:00:57.

of extra funding - but only received ?2 million from NHS England.

:00:58.:01:01.

The Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee

:01:02.:01:04.

for Oxfordshire has written to the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt

:01:05.:01:06.

warning that several practices have already had to close.

:01:07.:01:09.

But what if GPs weren't here to see us at all?

:01:10.:01:21.

Fears for the future of general practice have been raised

:01:22.:01:24.

And doctors in Oxfordshire say the situation is serious.

:01:25.:01:32.

You've got a drop in GP funding, now at its lowest level for ten years.

:01:33.:01:40.

Now under 8% of the NHS budget. When you think that general practice

:01:41.:01:46.

deals with 90% of NHS contacts each day, that seems a bit ru m. It is a

:01:47.:01:52.

perfect storm and the general practice and the NHS is really

:01:53.:01:54.

struggling. Oxfordshire's Health Overview

:01:55.:01:56.

and Scrutiny Committee has now written to the Health Secretary

:01:57.:01:58.

Jeremy Hunt. It says it has grave concerns

:01:59.:02:00.

about the sustainability of general practice

:02:01.:02:02.

across the county. It points out that

:02:03.:02:04.

Oxfordshire health bosses were granted just ?2 million

:02:05.:02:06.

of the ?50 million they asked for And it says some GP practices have

:02:07.:02:09.

already had to close, risking a "detrimental impact

:02:10.:02:16.

on access to essential care". One of those closures

:02:17.:02:25.

is here at Deer Park in Witney. Patients say it is a huge loss for

:02:26.:02:37.

the area. My husband had cancer, my daughter had cancer, they are both

:02:38.:02:40.

in remission. The doctors here save their lives. If we had been in

:02:41.:02:46.

Witney, no disrespect to the doctors there, we would have waited five or

:02:47.:02:50.

six weeks to see them. We wouldn't have got the diagnosis so quickly.

:02:51.:02:54.

Doctors say they're worried the Government isn't listening

:02:55.:02:55.

Unless government wakes up to the reality of general practice, I

:02:56.:03:04.

really do fear for its continued existence. And of course, if general

:03:05.:03:10.

practice fails, the NHS in its entirety fails.

:03:11.:03:12.

The Department of Health says it's invested ?2.4 billion

:03:13.:03:15.

into the sector to improve care, and is doing more to attract GPs

:03:16.:03:18.

into the profession, including agreeing a pay rise

:03:19.:03:20.

and bringing in flexible working schemes.

:03:21.:03:26.

?20,000 worth of aid has left Oxfam's warehouse

:03:27.:03:29.

in Bicester this afternoon destined for Somalia.

:03:30.:03:32.

Nearly three million people are facing a severe food shortage

:03:33.:03:35.

The charity says that many are reporting the crisis

:03:36.:03:40.

is far worse than the one in 2011 in which 250,000 people died.

:03:41.:03:43.

The shipment from Oxfordshire includes 1.5 tonnes

:03:44.:03:46.

A community application to reopen a swimming pool

:03:47.:03:52.

Swimmers who used the Arthur Hill Memorial Baths submitted

:03:53.:03:58.

a business plan for the site, which closed in December.

:03:59.:04:01.

They had hoped to use new Community Right To Challenge powers

:04:02.:04:04.

But the Borough Council said the bid failed to demonstrate

:04:05.:04:09.

that the proposed financial model was viable.

:04:10.:04:12.

Work's starting on a new ?20 million multi-storey car park

:04:13.:04:15.

It will increase the number of spaces at Foxhall Road

:04:16.:04:20.

The first phase of building work will start this month

:04:21.:04:26.

The work, which includes a covered walkway to the station,

:04:27.:04:31.

A foodbank in Aylesbury says demand has gone up by around 50 percent

:04:32.:04:37.

It's fed nearly 750 people in that time.

:04:38.:04:41.

Each box provides three days' worth of food for people in crisis.

:04:42.:04:44.

Adina Campbell has been to visit the warehouse where the food

:04:45.:04:47.

A new delivery for these volunteers to unload.

:04:48.:05:01.

Three days a week, they come here to this warehouse in Aylesbury,

:05:02.:05:04.

to sort and package up food boxes for those in need.

:05:05.:05:07.

You only need something to go wrong, like you need a car to work, the car

:05:08.:05:14.

breaks down... You have enough money for food or to prepare the car. We

:05:15.:05:18.

would then give them the food for that week to get them over the

:05:19.:05:20.

emergency. There are a handful of food banks

:05:21.:05:23.

in the Aylesbury area. But this is the only one supported

:05:24.:05:25.

by the Trussell Trust, a national network helping people

:05:26.:05:28.

below the poverty line. I'm actually homeless, living in a

:05:29.:05:39.

toilet a sickly at the moment. I used to work at the hospital. --

:05:40.:05:48.

basically at the moment. On the dole, not having a job, being

:05:49.:05:53.

homeless... Without the food banks, do you think you would go hungry? O

:05:54.:05:58.

God, yeah, definitely. Without a doubt.

:05:59.:06:01.

The Aylesbury Foodbank opened exactly one year ago and says

:06:02.:06:04.

demand has doubled during that period.

:06:05.:06:06.

It's fed more than 500 adults and 200 children.

:06:07.:06:13.

As you can see, this warehouse is jam-packed and all the supplies have

:06:14.:06:17.

been divided up to ensure the sorting process is as quick and easy

:06:18.:06:21.

as possible. At the moment, there are more than four times of food,

:06:22.:06:25.

enough to supply 200 families for three days.

:06:26.:06:28.

There are a number of check points across Aylesbury where boxes

:06:29.:06:31.

are dropped off and collected, like this church.

:06:32.:06:33.

But there is some paperwork involved.

:06:34.:06:39.

People have to get a voucher from citizens advice or the police, job

:06:40.:06:47.

centre, a similar organisation, and bring it along to somebody like more

:06:48.:06:52.

plus to redeem it for boxes with food.

:06:53.:06:54.

Back at the warehouse, it's a meticulous operation,

:06:55.:06:56.

Each box is enough to feed a single person or family

:06:57.:07:01.

When you see large families and you are providing multiple boxes for a

:07:02.:07:12.

weeks' worth of food, it can be quite alarming, when you are packing

:07:13.:07:16.

so little into a box but it crucial for them.

:07:17.:07:18.

Transporting boxes using personal cars will soon be

:07:19.:07:20.

A recent donation means the foodbank now has enough money

:07:21.:07:24.

Making deliveries more efficient and a greater number of people aware

:07:25.:07:29.

More children than ever before are on the waiting list to join

:07:30.:07:38.

Almost 1,000 children want to get involved,

:07:39.:07:43.

The Scout Association says that's because there's

:07:44.:07:47.

It says people who want to be involved don't

:07:48.:07:51.

You can do as much or as little as you like. For me, I probably do

:07:52.:08:04.

scouting every week am but there are other roles, casual helpers, you

:08:05.:08:07.

don't even have to commit to once a month. Just for a normal camp. It

:08:08.:08:10.

doesn't have to be every week. They're the flying visitors

:08:11.:08:13.

that no-one wants. English Heritage says the number

:08:14.:08:15.

of clothes moths has doubled in the past five years,

:08:16.:08:18.

and stately homes like Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire

:08:19.:08:20.

are particularly at risk. Waddesdon Manor is a

:08:21.:08:23.

magnet for tourists, but not all of the visitors

:08:24.:08:28.

here are welcome. Left

:08:29.:08:32.

to their own devices, Houses like this are full of

:08:33.:08:45.

textiles of the kind that clothes moths really love. Curtains at the

:08:46.:08:50.

windows, wonderful carpets on the floor. In some rooms, we have

:08:51.:08:56.

tapestries, felt on billiard tables. They absolutely love felt. All sorts

:08:57.:08:59.

of things that are very tempting to them.

:09:00.:09:01.

Clothes moths are not only a problem in stately homes.

:09:02.:09:03.

They've probably get their eye on your property too.

:09:04.:09:05.

English Heritage is researching the spread of the insects.

:09:06.:09:08.

The charity's giving out free traps, and wants people to tell them

:09:09.:09:11.

Clothes moths like warm temperatures and over the last few years we have

:09:12.:09:22.

seen an increase in the general temperature, so there is a thought

:09:23.:09:25.

that that is helping them. We are starting to put central heating on

:09:26.:09:29.

more. If it is much warmer through the year, instead of having one

:09:30.:09:35.

life-cycle, you can get up to three, so far more moths than there used to

:09:36.:09:36.

be. Even the exhibits at

:09:37.:09:40.

Oxford's Natural History Clothes moths have attacked the fur

:09:41.:09:41.

of this fox but staff here say You need to make them as

:09:42.:09:53.

uncomfortable as possible, removing their food sources, give your house

:09:54.:09:57.

a deep clean behind all of the cupboards, under the beds, vacuum

:09:58.:10:01.

the places you don't usually touch. If you want to preserve your jumpers

:10:02.:10:05.

and special items at home, I would suggest you put everything in a bag

:10:06.:10:06.

and put it in the freezer. Regular vacuuming is doing the trick

:10:07.:10:09.

at Waddesdon but the bad news is that a new species

:10:10.:10:12.

of the insect, called the Pale Backed Clothes Moth,

:10:13.:10:15.

is now on the scene. Before we hand you over to Jo Kent

:10:16.:10:26.

for the rest of South Today, here's the story of a tiny kitten,

:10:27.:10:29.

a hotel and dramatic rescue. Tatty had become trapped in the wall

:10:30.:10:32.

of cottage at the Swan Hotel Staff smashed down part

:10:33.:10:35.

of the wall to rescue her. They say it's a mystery

:10:36.:10:39.

how she got there. Tatty is thought to be

:10:40.:10:42.

two to three weeks old and is being cared for at

:10:43.:10:44.

the Blue Cross in Buford. Look at that face! I don't think she

:10:45.:10:53.

will have any trouble finding a home. I will be back at 10:30pm.

:10:54.:10:56.

fought by the rabbits The controversial scheme to build

:11:24.:11:25.

on the landscape which inspired Watership Down has turned

:11:26.:11:31.

a new chapter. The development, near Newbury,

:11:32.:11:33.

originally one of the biggest plans in West Berkshire history,

:11:34.:11:39.

will go ahead but with far fewer By all expectations,

:11:40.:11:42.

campaigners who have rallied to protect the real-life setting

:12:09.:12:14.

for Watership Down say what's happened here,

:12:15.:12:17.

or rather what hasn't, I didn't want this to go ahead

:12:18.:12:19.

in the first place but once planning permission has been given,

:12:20.:12:26.

it's outrageous that these developers and these landowners can

:12:27.:12:29.

sit for five years on this land The falling-out between

:12:30.:12:33.

the developers means one now plans to build around two thirds

:12:34.:12:44.

of the homes they first proposed. Even that's led the council to raise

:12:45.:12:46.

concerns about congestion. The developers say they're working

:12:47.:12:49.

to address those worries. But across town, here

:12:50.:12:51.

near the headquarters of Vodafone, the delays have allowed developers

:12:52.:12:54.

to overturn the council's rejection of their plans for homes on land

the council concedes to their way... I think people will always

:13:11.:13:12.

say "I told you so". People will always say we didn't

:13:13.:13:16.

listen, and yet we did. I think we took everything

:13:17.:13:21.

into account when we were doing our local plan and we delivered

:13:22.:13:25.

a sound local plan. It seems certain these fields

:13:26.:13:28.

will be developed one day, but when, that's one question no-one can

:13:29.:13:34.

answer with confidence just yet. An investigation has been launched

:13:35.:13:40.

into the death of a man held at an immigration removal

:13:41.:13:43.

centre in Dorset. The 43-year-old man,

:13:44.:13:45.

who has not been identified, died at The Verne,

:13:46.:13:47.

in Portland, on Sunday. His death comes weeks after concerns

:13:48.:13:50.

were raised about the effects of detention on the 500 immigrants

:13:51.:13:53.

being held at the establishment. Firefighters are tonight tackling

:13:54.:13:59.

a heathland and gorse fire covering three hectares

:14:00.:14:02.

of Yateley Common in Hampshire. Hampshire Fire Rescue say they've

:14:03.:14:10.

sent three engines and a landrover from Rushmoor and Yateley

:14:11.:14:15.

to the fire. It's the second time the area has

:14:16.:14:17.

been ablaze in less than a week. It was a violent encounter

:14:18.:14:20.

which lasted seconds. And now a jury will decide

:14:21.:14:22.

whether a young student is guilty of manslaughter after killing a man

:14:23.:14:25.

with just one punch. Ryan Cooper hit fellow Isle of Wight

:14:26.:14:28.

resident Gary Stacey after a night But he claims it was in self-defence

:14:29.:14:31.

after he was accosted The prosecution say

:14:32.:14:37.

it was an unprovoked attack. Ben Moore reports form

:14:38.:14:41.

Winchester Crown Court. Mr justice will be listed the events

:14:42.:14:53.

that led to tragedy in the early hours of Valentine's Day last year.

:14:54.:14:56.

A tragedy that centres around two people from the Isle of Wight,

:14:57.:15:01.

20-year-old Ryan Cooper and 49-year-old Gary Stacey. Ryan Cooper

:15:02.:15:06.

was a law student at Southampton University out with friends after

:15:07.:15:10.

returning to Newport at the weekend. He was rejected from the pub at

:15:11.:15:15.

around 2:30am. Gary Stacey had also been there. But it was on the street

:15:16.:15:20.

just before 4am when the two met. The court was reminded how Ryan

:15:21.:15:24.

Cooper and other witnesses maintained Gary Stacey had

:15:25.:15:26.

threatened to knock him out after confusing him with a different group

:15:27.:15:31.

of people. What is captured on CCTV and not in dispute is that Ryan

:15:32.:15:39.

Cooper punched Mr Stacey. The defence say Ryan Cooper was acting

:15:40.:15:44.

in self defence, trying to ward off a fight. The prosecution says this

:15:45.:15:52.

is a cover-up and lies, after Gary Stacey died after falling to the

:15:53.:15:57.

pavement and receiving a blow to the head and a bleed to the brain.

:15:58.:16:05.

Friends and parents described him as distraught as he handed -- dialled

:16:06.:16:11.

999 before handing himself in. But after three weeks of evidence, it is

:16:12.:16:14.

up to the jury to decide what happens.

:16:15.:16:24.

A community campaign to save a 105-year-old swimming pool

:16:25.:16:26.

The Arthur Hill Memorial Baths, in Reading, were closed in December

:16:27.:16:30.

after the Borough Council said it would cost ?700,000 to fully repair.

:16:31.:16:33.

Campaigners raised ?10,000 to start up a community interest

:16:34.:16:35.

But last night the council said the plan was not financially viable.

:16:36.:16:39.

The council will instead invest in new facilities

:16:40.:16:41.

Regrettably, the council decided they didn't want to work with the

:16:42.:16:54.

local community to open a local service. I don't feel we need to

:16:55.:17:01.

pack up and go home. There is a need for undertaking leisure and sports

:17:02.:17:06.

activity here, so we are looking to organise some local fitness and

:17:07.:17:10.

sports events at some period on a kind of pop-up basis.

:17:11.:17:17.

Not totally defeated there! We are talking sporting events and fitness

:17:18.:17:19.

clubs! Absolutely. Should be a really big Easter

:17:20.:17:29.

weekend. Could be very good for Brighton. Wolverhampton Wanderers on

:17:30.:17:35.

Friday. Possible promotion coming up! Very exciting! And Portsmouth

:17:36.:17:41.

fans, after such a tough time. Promotion is coming, it is just a

:17:42.:17:45.

question of when. But they will be backed by a full house on Friday and

:17:46.:17:50.

then a travelling army of 4000 at Notts County on Monday. They could

:17:51.:17:53.

secure promotion over Easter weekend. 18,000 sell-out for that

:17:54.:18:00.

match. Promotion could come on Monday in the East Midlands at

:18:01.:18:05.

Meadow Lane. Results permitting, of course, but we will keep right

:18:06.:18:08.

across it as we go into the weekend. We stay with Portsmouth to feature

the only World Cup winner for England since 1966.

:18:14.:18:17.

Jill Ellis led the United States to women's World Cup glory in 2015.

:18:18.:18:20.

But Jill's life began in Hampshire as the daughter of a Naval officer.

:18:21.:18:23.

A family move to the US would change her life,

:18:24.:18:26.

She's been talking to us from her base stateside.

:18:27.:18:35.

It really is now the global game for women. The level of play has changed

:18:36.:18:42.

dramatically. The athleticism, technique, coaching, attacks.

:18:43.:18:45.

Everything is changing so much, advancing. It's now got a world fan

:18:46.:18:50.

base. The journey for Jo Ellis started in the Hampshire village of

:18:51.:18:58.

cow plane. She lived here till she was 15 and football was always in

:18:59.:19:01.

the family. The memories of those early years and the influence of her

:19:02.:19:06.

football-loving father, John, a Royal Marines Commando, live on.

:19:07.:19:13.

There was a place called Pitt street in Pompey and my dad used to take us

:19:14.:19:17.

there, my brother and me. When the men's game was going on we would go

:19:18.:19:22.

over and usually end up in a fight! Those were my first memories of

:19:23.:19:25.

going to watch the games. Afterwards my dad would take us into the

:19:26.:19:29.

clubhouse and I remember getting a bag of chips and a soda. This is

:19:30.:19:34.

what remains of her field of dreams. The old venue is a retail park in

:19:35.:19:39.

Portsmouth. The family upped sticks in 1980 and went to Virginia, where

:19:40.:19:44.

her dad started a soccer school. She may have become an international

:19:45.:19:47.

manager but such a big job wasn't always the plan. I went to college

:19:48.:19:52.

to play some football and obviously get an education. I never wanted to

:19:53.:19:56.

be a coach. I went on a different tangent and worked in the business

:19:57.:20:00.

world for a couple of years as a technical writer. Got a call to go

:20:01.:20:06.

and do an assistant job at a college and university and I said, guessed,

:20:07.:20:10.

and I took a job and a leap of faith. It's obviously spiralled

:20:11.:20:13.

since there in terms of what I've been able to do. Jill, who was born

:20:14.:20:21.

in 1966, led the US to a World Cup victory and the rear Olympics, and

:20:22.:20:24.

with the women's game growing around the world, competition has become

:20:25.:20:29.

that much harder. -- the Rio Olympics. Does that mean more

:20:30.:20:36.

challenges for the team? Of course. The girl with the can-do attitude.

:20:37.:20:41.

Good story. And I love the way she's retained some of that Hampshire. She

:20:42.:20:50.

talks about. But a bit of American, chips and soda. She means crisps and

:20:51.:20:55.

a drink! Never forgotten her roots. That's

:20:56.:20:59.

brilliant. It's been another lovely day today.

:21:00.:21:02.

Let's take a look at some of your pictures first. This is a lunar

:21:03.:21:11.

halo. And this is in Dorset. That's the

:21:12.:21:18.

rapeseed from the air near Basingstoke. Thank you for your

:21:19.:21:21.

pictures. We are going to get the weather now.

:21:22.:21:26.

We sent Alexis out this evening. She's that Mayflower Park. Making

:21:27.:21:30.

the most of it because I understand it's going to get a bit cloudier?

:21:31.:21:36.

That's right, a bit cloudier over the next few days, but today was

:21:37.:21:45.

lovely, with a high of 16. Elsewhere in land highs of 15. This is the

:21:46.:21:51.

satellite picture from earlier on. We are looking at increasing cloud

:21:52.:21:55.

the most of us overnight, especially during the second part, and that's

:21:56.:21:59.

that swathe of cloud moving eastwards from the Atlantic. The

:22:00.:22:04.

westerly breeze is becoming quite brisk through this evening and will

:22:05.:22:08.

stay so overnight tonight. Temperatures will fall away to

:22:09.:22:12.

around 6-7 degrees in urban areas but possibly down to four or five in

:22:13.:22:18.

the countryside, so a fair amount of cloud by dawn, and a lot cloudier

:22:19.:22:22.

tomorrow than today. Through the morning, temperatures that eight or

:22:23.:22:26.

nine with some brighter spells, but a good deal of cloud. Through the

:22:27.:22:30.

afternoon, with the thickening cloud, we could have the odd spot of

:22:31.:22:33.

rain, being more likely the further north you are. Up in Berkshire, for

:22:34.:22:45.

example. Temperatures reaching 12 or 13 Celsius. Tomorrow night, the

:22:46.:22:47.

cloud starts to melt away and the rain eases through the hours of

:22:48.:22:53.

Thursday morning, so turning chilly in the countryside to start

:22:54.:22:57.

Thursday. Temperatures could drop to as low as four or five, but more

:22:58.:23:07.

like six or seven in urban areas. Temperatures around 11-13 each day

:23:08.:23:10.

but there will be some brighter spells and a good deal of dry

:23:11.:23:14.

weather as well. Friday and Saturday possibly the odds of that --

:23:15.:23:18.

scattered showers. On Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, mainly dry with a

:23:19.:23:22.

good deal of cloud, but some brighter spells. Back to the studio.

:23:23.:23:31.

There are some areas synonymous with the beautiful cars they produce.

:23:32.:23:33.

BMW in Bavaria, Ferrari in Maranello, Ford in Detroit.

:23:34.:23:35.

Tucked away in a Hampshire farm is a project to create a racing car

:23:36.:23:40.

to quicken the pulse of car enthusiasts the world over.

:23:41.:23:42.

BBC South's own petrol-head, transport correspondent

:23:43.:23:45.

Paul Clifton, couldn't resist taking a ride.

:23:46.:23:54.

Take a look at Britain's newest car from a brand-new manufacturer. The

:23:55.:24:04.

Elemental is light, fast and fun. It's also quite expensive. What does

:24:05.:24:10.

?100,000 by you? Well, it doesn't buy a roof! It doesn't buy doors!

:24:11.:24:16.

And on this car, it doesn't buy a windscreen either. The seats are

:24:17.:24:20.

made of carbon fibre and there's no padding. It's quite awkward to get

:24:21.:24:25.

yourself in! Because you end up with your feet level with your waist,

:24:26.:24:32.

just like you do in a Formula 1 car. But what it does have is

:24:33.:24:40.

performance. 0-60 in well under three seconds. 0-100 in under six

:24:41.:24:47.

seconds. This is essentially a road-legal racing car. The car

:24:48.:24:52.

weighs next to nothing. It is all about aerodynamic downforce. At a

:24:53.:24:56.

small industrial unit hidden away on a Hampshire farm, the next car is

:24:57.:25:02.

nearly ready. 75% of this vehicle comes from within 15 miles of this

:25:03.:25:09.

factory. We've got a lot of very small, very advanced manufacturing

:25:10.:25:13.

capability in this area. There are eight staff and half of them used to

:25:14.:25:19.

work for the McLaren Formula 1 team. It's got racing technology and ideas

:25:20.:25:22.

in it but is still designed to drive on the road. Obviously if you go to

:25:23.:25:26.

track and you haven't got a speed limit, you can really start pushing

:25:27.:25:30.

the car, and is capable of doing things most cars cannot do outside

:25:31.:25:35.

of dedicated racing machines. To reach the luggage space, you have to

:25:36.:25:39.

open the engine cover. You probably wouldn't take this car to the

:25:40.:25:43.

supermarket! Somebody who buys this could equally buy a Ferrari, a

:25:44.:25:48.

Porsche, a McLaren, a Lamborghini. Why would they buy yours? They could

:25:49.:25:54.

buy those cars but this is the only road-going car in the world with

:25:55.:25:57.

anything like the levels of downforce you can generate with this

:25:58.:26:01.

car. The aerodynamics are straight out of Formula 1 prototype arena.

:26:02.:26:09.

We're never going to be a Lotus or an Aston Martin, selling 100 --

:26:10.:26:13.

hundreds of thousands of cars. That's not our ambition. We are

:26:14.:26:18.

looking at opening up into the American, European and worldwide

:26:19.:26:20.

markets and ultimately selling anything from 40, 50, up to 60 cars

:26:21.:26:28.

a year. This car really belongs on a racetrack. It is perhaps the most

:26:29.:26:32.

bonkers car I've ever driven on the public highway! Paul Clifton, BBC

:26:33.:26:40.

South today, Hampshire. And you can see he's loving every

:26:41.:26:41.

minute of it! Fantastic! Finally, there's a strange

:26:42.:26:45.

new feature that's appeared off the Sussex coast at Lancing

:26:46.:26:47.

in the last week. A digger which was working

:26:48.:26:49.

on a cable trench for the Rampion Offshore wind farm first

:26:50.:26:51.

became stuck and then was swamped A recovery vessel has now

:26:52.:26:54.

arrived with a giant crane but the construction company says it

:26:55.:26:58.

may take weeks to A local paper asked its readers

:26:59.:27:00.

to name the stranded digger. That's all from us this evening!

:27:01.:27:13.

What a way to finish! Thanks for your company tonight. Goodbye.

:27:14.:27:35.

There have never been so many people in work -

:27:36.:27:37.

that's what the Government keeps telling us.
