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
