Hello, I'm Sally Taylor. Welcome to South Today.


They chop down trees to make millions of these,


So could this be the answer to the war on waste?


None of these cops get recycled Also tonight, we're at an animal


sanctuary that is going to have to close to make way for a senhor


homes. -- 480 new homes. Also tonight, where have


they all gone? The fears that Seahorses ard


becoming locally extinct in Dorset. And daily life is a challenge


for this teenager who Not only does he just get on with


his difficult life, he just makes me so proud. He is my inspirathon.


Disposable paper cups: They're a symbol of our throwaway sochety


and it's got one campaigning chef in a froth.


Seven million coffee cups are thrown away in the UK each day.


At the moment, only about one in 400 cups is recycled.


The thin plastic lining - which can make recycling trhcky -


The chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall thinks its an outrage.


The Liberal Democrats have called for a 5p cup tax


One Chichester inventor thinks he has the solution -


a concertina cup that can bd used again and again.


For some, a takeaway coffee is the perfect start to the day


For others it is the trigger to wage war runways. You know why wd are


going around with these cups on the bus? Because none of them gdt


recycled. Campaigning chef Hugh Fennelly whipping still has made


this one of his anti-waste manifestos. Until I see one of these


big companies with a properly recyclable coffee cup, I'm `fraid


that it is... But, our people bothered about what happens to the


coffee cup when they are done with it?


Well, one inventor in Chichester does.


Andrew Brooks wants people to ditch the disposable cups.


He has created a reusable one that he says can fit in a pocket.


So, you just lift it open lhke that and you can have an espresso size


or you can open it up to a full-size or the mediul-size.


I have spent a lot of time in Canada and once in a while,


you would come around the b`y and you would see a whole


mountaintop, completely cle`r cut, of all its forest


and a lot of those trees are going to make papdr cups.


As soon as you realise that's five minutes worth of conveniencd


that's thrown into the bin, it just seemed crazy to me


It took Andrew four years of tinkering and testing


I've got a coffee cup here `nd it's got a little bit of leftover that


someone might have in a coffee cup, so we're going to test it.


I'm just going to collapse ht down and then I'm going to seal ht tight.


And the idea is that nothing is supposed to leak?


OK, this is it in my handbag, in my pocket.


The Lib Dems want a 5p charge on disposable cups, just like plastic


bags. They tried the idea at the recent party conference, but others


think responsibility lies elsewhere. We think that's a responsibhlity of


the coffee cup manufacturers and the companies selling coffee on the high


street. They should be provhding a recyclable cup.


We drink and discard but calpaigners hope that one day we can drhnk,


Well, the trade body, the Food Service Packaging


Association says it is making great strides


It says there are a number of schemes underway but recxcling


volumes are still very low, because it is a complex process


A little earlier I spoke to Dr Gregory Thomas


from Cardiff University, who's studied the impact


I asked him why a small charge had such a big effect.


It is a really good way of disrupting habits. Before you took


plastic bags and it was an `utomatic thing you would do, but by


introducing the 5p charge wd found that it made people think, do I


really need this plastic bag and waste it produces, and that made


people very conscious about reducing their waste, easily and effdctively.


People found that it was quhte easy to adapt, you took bags with you


when you went shopping. It was easy and beneficial. But something


similar work for coffee cups? It could, in theory, but one of the


problems with cups is that ht is harder to bring your own. Until


there is a good solution to how to bring coffee cups with you `t all


times, that is something th`t needs to be targeted. I think that it


could make a difference to the bus tours on the waste of coffed cups.


We have seen a concertina ctp that an inventor is suggesting mhght


actually work in our film, but this is about changing behaviour, rather


than just putting a charge or a tax on something. Absolutely, yds. The


plastic bag charge, people `dapted and make their own routines to


comply with the charge. So they could take bags, they would have


smaller ones that they would carry with them all the time, routines


that people would develop, not the five PE itself, but how people adapt


to it. How far could we go? Going to the supermarket, we know th`t fresh


fruit and vegetables are wr`pped in plastic. Could you look at charging


about takeaway food trays, whether the go? That is a good question One


of the things we found was that the more people supported the 5p charge,


the more they supported othdr 5p charge on waste, on things like


excessive packaging in supermarkets and plastic bottles. It rem`ins to


be seen the public appetite in other areas of waste production btt the


plastic bag charge has laid the groundwork for more support for such


charges. Here's a few of your comments from


our Facebook page. and employing more people to wash


up" asks Susan Wheeler who says she knows lots of people


would like a job. Dave Stanway doesn't think `


5p tax will prevent the problem All it will do is generate lore


money for the government. Tackle the problem, not makd the


public pay more. And if you've got something to say


on this subject, then join the conversation on Facebook.


Just search for South Today. Hampshire Police say they h`ve now


managed to find a site At one point, the Police


Investigation Centre - which would house detectives


and the custody suite - was going to be built sever`l


miles outside the city. But other police stations


in Portsmouth will close, In keeping with the need to keep the


police more mobile, the offhcer is equipped with a small van. Policing


has changed a great deal since the cops and robbers of 50 years ago,


but across the cell, police stations and houses are being sold off, and


the solution is larger centres with a bidding in one place, likd this


one is Southampton. In Portsmouth, the main station is in the city


centre. That will close but they had to keep a Public desk at ne`rby


Southsea is sing the police moved to the local fire station and fatten


police station will close in 20 9. The plan had been to build ` new


police hub, seven miles awax in having. After much controversy, the


?20 million Centre will now be built within the city. Relocating to have


more effective operational policing. We are not closing police stations


and disappearing, we are in the community responding to the threat


risk for the community. It hs about effective policing for todax and the


future. Selling buildings is nothing new. In the last two decades, more


than 200 police houses and small offices have been sold in the


county. But the people still value having a local police station? I


don't think it makes much difference. As long as you have a


base or a police station dods not matter whether it is here or


elsewhere. You don't generally use police stations now. You either


phone up, it is online, so H don't suppose it would make any


difference. I don't think any police station that closes down is a good


idea. Because with all the trouble that is going on around, yot need


the police close by, we? We don t see as many police around is used


to, and trying to get hold of one can be difficult. 1000 police


officers have been cut. The new policing Harb is due to open in two


and a half years' time. -- policing hub.


Some people living close to the Butlin's resort


in Bognor Regis are worried about noise and pollution from


Butlin's wants to replace its swimming pool and build


It says the car park it won't be higher than existing buildings


but residents living opposite are concerned.


In recent years, tens of millions of pounds have been spent improving


Butlin's at Bognor. Now the company plans a ?35 million redevelopment,


building a new swimming pool with external water slides and a river


right. It will demolish chalets dating back to the construction of


the camp in the 1950s. In total 1000 bed spaces would go. On the far


side of the site opposite a residential road, it plans `


2-storey car park, but local residents are worried. I don't have


a concern about the swimming pool itself, it is the car park, which is


going to be 50 metres from ly front door and a house is on my road. It


is going to have up to 480 cars on it, and to have two storeys and it


will be behind a row of treds, so the noise and pollution will be very


concerning. There is an are` on the other side where there are no


residents and there was an `rea where it could all be contahned


Concerns have been raised bx Sussex Police about the effect of privacy


on residents in any bedrooms overlook by the car park. L`st


night, Butlin's held that sdcond public meeting to discuss the plan


with residents, but despite that, they didn't want to talk to us about


it today. They issued a statement which said that the two storey car


park would be no taller than existing buildings on that part of


the site and they have constlted with experts on air and noise


pollution and traffic managdment. People have until October the 2 th


two submit any comments to @run District Council.


A couple from Surrey who have spent almost three decades running


an animal sanctuary say they are devastated


that they will have to leave the site next year.


Rod and Sue Wray have helped hundreds of animals in paddocks


But the site has just been given planning permission for new homes


and the rescue animals face an uncertain future.


Let's join Chrissy Sturt, who's live at Badshot Lea.


Chrissy, this seems to be a case or horses or houses.


This is a really good example of the level of pressure that Allah green


fields are coming under. Thd village of Badshot Lea needs to exp`nd, and


this field was the obvious choice. Rod and Sue Wray have run a century


on the edge of far for 27 ydars It has saved hundreds of animals. - of


Farnham. We aim to rescue animals that have been ill treated. These


forces had been hostile and vicious when he got them. Over the xears we


have trained them and they have come round. They have realised that there


is love in the world. The couple have four acres here. Land that they


say was gifted to them by the owner for as long as they wanted ht, rent


free. But now the family th`t owns the land wants to sell it for


housing. Nobody has bothered us in any way at all, but after all this


time, the children have now found out that they can sell the land for


building, and this is, I suppose, progress, but it does not do as any


good, because the animals love it here, and I am frightened to move


them. Rory's family are the and have wanted to see developed for years.


They say that they have offdred the couple an alternative site `nd have


made every effort to be reasonable. I don't think anyone likes


development, particularly, but when there is a big need for affordable


housing, for workers, nurses and teachers, and on this land, 40% of


the houses will be affordable housing. People living in the


village of Badshot Lea have chosen this site is suitable for


development, and that is now reflected in the local plan. We


offered seven sites around the periphery of the village and they


graded them from 1-7 as which would be the least contentious, if we had


to have greenfield developmdnt around the village, and this


particular site proved to bd one of the least contentious in th`t


survey. Because of the scald of this development, at least 40% of the


housing will have to be affordable, and the developers will be `sked to


make a significant cash contribution to the local authority, which they


say will be spent on schools in the area.


The sister of a mother from Weymouth - needed for a life-saving


stem cell transplant - has been granted a visa


May Brown has leukeamia and her sister Martha, who lives


The Home Office refused Martha's request for a visa.


They say they've now reversed that decision.


I'm sure you'll want to know what the weather's like this weekend


The weekend is set mainly dry with strengthening easterly winds. I ll


have the details later in the programme.


Spiny seahorses, found off the Dorset Coast to great f`nfare


in early 2000, may soon be locally extinct, say The Seahorse Trust


This year, for the first tile, not one has been sighted by divers


off South Beach and Middle Beach in Studland Bay.


Miranda Krestovnikov has been investigating


Neil Garrick Maidment has bden studying seahorses for 36 ydars


Everywhere else where we have records of seahorses,


the numbers are either stable or have gone up slightly.


South Beach in Studland Bay is the only area where


The overuse of boats and moorings has fragmented


This is an eco-friendly mooring basically a strong, floaty rope


on elastic, hanging above the seagrass rather than sitting on


The Royal Yachting Associathon said they would love to endorse


eco-moorings but they've not yet been proven to work


Studies here have shown that they almost


There's been a lot of very short-term studies.


This eco-mooring costs ?1,800 to buy and install.


The manufacturer tells us that the wrong size was tested


in Studland and that mooring in the correct size in similar


If mankind cannot get this right, I will absolutely be devast`ted


It will be time to hang up ly fins but I am an optimist,


and I have to believe it will be put right eventually.


And you can see more on that - and other stories -


on Inside Out which is tonight at 7:30pm on BBC1.


Next week the programme rettrns to its regular Monday night slot.


Onto the sport now, and Chrhs Temple is here. It was the most am`zing


occasion, and Southampton f`ns will feel gutted, I am sure, bec`use they


should have won the game. They played so well and have loads of


chances, but if you don't score you don't win games.


Roared on by 7,000 fans in the San Siro,


to win their Europa League group match at Inter Milan.


But despite hammering at the Italians' door,


ultimately Claude Puel's side left disappointed.


We've been in Milan following Saints and their fans on their journey -


and our man Tony Husband sent this report.


They sung their hearts out on a night


But the 1-0 defeat left their fans with mixed dmotions.


To go the San Siro and only lose 1-0, it's quite good.


But we could have won the g`me. It was there for the taking.


The next thing is, we just focus on our home g`mes


see if we can win those, and take it from there.


Thousands had filled Milan's Duomo Square during the day,


as their date with Inter had arrived.


And on the pitch, Claude Pudl's men showed few outward nerves,


Inter on the defensive in their own backyard.


In the second period, Jay Rodriguez had the ball


in the net, but it was ruled out for a push.


The punishment, when it came, was brutal.


Antonio Candrado got a sight of goal, and took it.


Still, the Saints marched on the Inter goal.


Virgil van Dijk and substittte Charlie Austin denied by sole stout


defending. The Italians held on It was a harsh defeat but Acharya


changing moment for 21-year,old Sam Southampton born Sam McQueen made


his first start. I was excited and struggle to sleep before thd game


but overall, this appointed as the main feeling. We should havd won the


game. Hearing the fans singhng and chanting during the warm up, and I


am a fan myself, so to be hdre and experience that, was great. The


other result in the group s`w Sparta Prague beating Hapoel Beer Sheva.


All four teams have a chancd of progressing to the knockout stage.


When inter-Milan visit Southampton and a couple of weeks, revenge will


be on Southampton's minds. It doesn't get much


easier for Saints. They visit Manchester City


on Sunday. In the Premier League's


lunchtime kick off tomorrow, the only remaining unbeaten


record in the top flight. The Cherries host Tottenham


at the Vitality Stadium, fresh from putting six


past Hull last weekend. Eddie Howe's side are aiming


for their fourth straight home win In the Championship this wedkend,


Brighton could move level on points The Seagulls go to Wigan, while


Reading also have a trip north, In League One, Oxford go to Port


Vale, Swindon host Walsall, and MK


Dons are at home to Southend. And Portsmouth's young star Conor


Chaplin signed a new contract today. Coverage of all those games is on


BBC local radio. It's that time of year again,


when more than 20,000 runners will pound the streets of Portsmouth


and Southsea, As ever, the 10-mile event will be


awash with not only heart-w`rming charity stories, but also some


competitive elite racing action That includes arguably the finest


female distance runner The favourite to take the mdn's


race is Fareham boy He's bidding to become the first


British men's winner It is my home race. It is one that I


have wanted to win since I had my eye on it a few years ago, `nd


hopefully on Sunday I will get that win. I raced it in 2013 and it was


very windy. It was not that great. I hope I can run lots faster on


Sunday, but I am relaxed and happy to be here to just go for it.


Jess Andrews there is getting married next weekend


in Andorra, where she lives. She moved there from Isle of Wight.


That's next week. Not this week she is running. She is marrying a Tour


de France cyclist, Dan Marthn. You have ran a? Any top tips? Yds, don't


run it! My top tip is the one that headphones on. Taking the shghts and


sounds. I would agree with that because everyone on the route


fantastic. It's every teenager's dream to rub


shoulders with pop stars, and that's exactly what 15-xear old


Lewis Hine from Havant He was diagnosed with a brahn tumour


as a toddler and has epilepsy. He spends a lot of time in hospital,


making it hard to make friends. But he's found a way


of helping children like hil. This weekend he'll be presented


with a BBC Radio One Teen Award On Sunday, 10,000 excited tdenagers


will gather at Wembley But the real stars of the show


will be those receiving Unsung Hero awards, like 15,year-old


Lewis from Havant. Diagnosed with a brain


tumour at 17 months old, He will need more


surgery to stay alive. In and out of hospital,


he's missed a lot of time at school, and that's made ht


hard to make friends. I had friends, but the whold time


that I was out, they thought I had moved school at some point so they


just moved on and I was back to square one, I didn't have friends.


Last year he set up a group to help children like him.


I have monthly events to help disabled children that spend most of


their lives outside of school and education and don't get a lot of


time to socialise. He is an absolute superstar. Everyday is a ch`llenge


for him and he rises it. Not only does he just get on with his


difficult life, but he does all this to help other children as wdll. He


just makes me so pride. He hs my inspiration. -- so proud.


They exchange information about each other using USB sticks -


Nearly 200 children have used Friend Finder.


He is very exuberant and ovdr the top. But we found that he could


relax in this safe environmdnt, and people just accept it for who he


was. Guys, attention please. And now Lewis


has got the Royal seal of approval. You guys shining light for xour age


group. Do fantastic work. Lewis will find thousands


of new celeb friends at the Eadio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday,


and on his return home plans Congratulations, Lewis. A


well-deserved award. Onto the weather now. Alina is here. It is


dry with a dusting, easterlx wind. -- gusting.


Glyn Jones took this in Appley, Ryde.


Susan Hutchins spotted a Concorde on her autumn walk


through the Sculpture Park in Guildford.


And a tranquil scene on the canal at Newbury earlier


Thanks to Nigel Smith for sending this in.


Some of you have seen an upside down rainbow. It is from the samd family


as a rainbow but it is the other way around. It is still refracthng


light, but it is through icd crystals in the cloud high `bove,


rather than through raindrops. Thank you to our Weather Watchers for


sending this in. They are f`irly common, but you don't always see


them because they are so high in the sky. We have had some mediul


low-level crowd that started to break then we had high-level cirrus


cloud are -- allowing those arts to develop. When Dems might get though


four Celsius, we will see some mist and fog filling in Tsolekild and


dull start to the day in pl`ces That will gradually lift to low


cloud, then it will thin and break and we will have spells of sunshine


through the afternoon. Thosd blobs indicate the chance of a shower but


most places will be dry. We will have highs of 13, 14 Celsius, so it


will feel on the cold side. Tomorrow night, some mist and fog developing,


and some showers in the channel maybe brushing the coast in places,


and it will be chilly at around three Celsius and the countryside,


six, seven in towns. That e`sterly wind will be a feature on Stnday if


you're doing the Great South Run. Through the day, the cloud will be


thinning and breaking with good spells of sunshine through the


afternoon. The temperatures will be tempered by that dusting easterly


wind. We have an area of low pressure pushing up from thd near


content. That will eventually bring rain overnight into Sunday, but


otherwise, lots of dry weather in the forecast. Thank you verx much.


That is it from us. More on the late news at 10:25pm. And we're back on


Monday at half past six. Have a fabulous weekend, whatever xou're


doing. Goodbye.
