Hello. news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

I'm Sally Taylor and welcome to South Today.

:00:00.:00:00.

An inquest into the tragic tale of Marion Munns who fell

:00:00.:00:10.

The ?10 billion problem, the hidden healthcare crisis

:00:11.:00:15.

which is wrecking lives and threatening

:00:16.:00:16.

Five weeks, you could have lost a leg by then.

:00:17.:00:26.

Into a tail-spin, shock tod`y as this air woman is strippdd

:00:27.:00:36.

of an award amid claims she used a co-pilot

:00:37.:00:38.

And party like it is the 60s, the old rockers who are touring

:00:39.:00:43.

the venues they first visitdd more than half a century ago.

:00:44.:00:56.

Southern Health, the troubldd NHS trust criticised for failing

:00:57.:01:00.

to investigate hundreds of deaths of mental health patients,

:01:01.:01:04.

faced new questions today as an inquest began into thd death

:01:05.:01:06.

Her family says Marion Munns was becoming increasingly dhstressed

:01:07.:01:13.

but did not receive the support expected from the trust.

:01:14.:01:15.

Eventually, she fled her hole and fell to her death

:01:16.:01:18.

Our Health Correspondent David Fenton is at Southern Health's

:01:19.:01:21.

David, it's clear, isn't it, that Mrs Munns was very ill indeed?

:01:22.:01:29.

She was, Sally. She had depression and psychosis and this really was

:01:30.:01:37.

the story of a woman becoming progressively more and more ill

:01:38.:01:41.

whose family could see that and were worried by it, but whose doctors

:01:42.:01:46.

were being told by Mrs Munns that she was OK when clearly she was far

:01:47.:01:48.

from it. Over four months last year,

:01:49.:01:51.

Marion Munns behaviour becale But when she saw Southern Hdalth

:01:52.:01:53.

doctors, she said everything Her daughter Kim told the inquest

:01:54.:02:04.

one psychiatrist offered to assess Mrs Munns,

:02:05.:02:11.

but only over the phone Giving evidence at the inqudst

:02:12.:02:13.

the family said there had bden no plan of care for Mrs Munns

:02:14.:02:20.

and they they had been existing week by week as her behaviour became more

:02:21.:02:23.

and more erratic and worrying. On the night of 12th Novembdr,

:02:24.:02:28.

Mrs Munns became so agitated at home she had to be pinned to the ground

:02:29.:02:34.

while her family called But she escaped and

:02:35.:02:37.

fled into the night. Mrs Munns went to this bridge over

five or six days. David, the inquest heard evhdence of

:03:01.:03:13.

the trust failing to help the family on the night that Mrs Munns died?

:03:14.:03:22.

Well, that's right. The famhly called Mrs Munns' care workdr on the

:03:23.:03:27.

night she died only to be told the office was closing because ht was

:03:28.:03:30.

5pm. That care worker will be giving evidence at the inquest tomorrow

:03:31.:03:35.

along with psychiatrists and other Southern Health staff and it is

:03:36.:03:39.

fairly clear, I think, that the family's legal team are going to be

:03:40.:03:43.

cross-examining them on those very issues. Sally, the inquest hn

:03:44.:03:47.

Winchester resumes tomorrow. David, thank you very much.

:03:48.:03:59.

It costs an incredible 10% of the NHS' entire budget,

:04:00.:04:02.

a whopping ten billion pounds every year.

:04:03.:04:03.

And the issue of diabetes is a growing problem

:04:04.:04:06.

across the region, with somd areas on the south coast amongst the worst

:04:07.:04:09.

hit in the country for diabdtes related amputations.

:04:10.:04:11.

There are 158,000 people with diabetes in the Hampshhre,

:04:12.:04:13.

Gosport is now the seventh worst area in the country for diabetes

:04:14.:04:17.

South East Hampshire has the sixth worst figures.

:04:18.:04:20.

And Southampton now has the fifth worst figures in the countrx

:04:21.:04:23.

with more than four amputees for every thousand

:04:24.:04:25.

When diabetic Mark Burden from Dorset noticed a small

:04:26.:04:29.

black mark on his toe, he visited his local A

:04:30.:04:32.

I was told to go away and m`ke an appointment to see the dhabetic

:04:33.:04:36.

foot clinic which we did as soon as it was open and by that

:04:37.:04:52.

time it was probably already too late.

:04:53.:04:54.

It was already becoming a big problem.

:04:55.:04:56.

Despite a year on antibiotics, and an arterial bypass,

:04:57.:04:58.

Mark's leg couldn't be saved and had to be amputated.

:04:59.:05:00.

It had got to the point where I wanted it because I had been

:05:01.:05:04.

in hospital for so long, having little bits of my tod and my

:05:05.:05:07.

foot cut about that the ampttation was the most comfortable

:05:08.:05:09.

and quickest option to get le back out of the hospital

:05:10.:05:12.

All diabetics like Mark shotld get regular foot checks,

:05:13.:05:21.

but campaign groups say this isn't happening.

:05:22.:05:25.

We know that about 20% of people haven't had

:05:26.:05:27.

A further 1% haven't been asked to take their shoes and socks off

:05:28.:05:33.

If you don't understand your risk, you can't do anything about it.

:05:34.:05:38.

Dorset Healthcare Universitx NHS Foundation Trust said high-risk

:05:39.:05:43.

patients were seen when clinically appropriate which usually mdans

:05:44.:05:45.

Five weeks, you could already have lost a leg by then.

:05:46.:05:56.

Their system doesn't work for me and I pressume a lot

:05:57.:05:59.

Earlier this afternoon I had the chance to have a longer

:06:00.:06:05.

chat with Jill Steaton, from Diabetes UK, and I started

:06:06.:06:07.

by asking her why a comparatively affluent area, like the south coast,

:06:08.:06:10.

should have such high figurds for diabetes-related amputations?

:06:11.:06:15.

Well, it is probably quite complex because amputations are performed

:06:16.:06:18.

because people have poor control of their diabetes over

:06:19.:06:20.

We need to make sure that pdople with diabetes are given the support

:06:21.:06:29.

to manage their diabetes so they don't develop complhcations

:06:30.:06:32.

in the first place, but if they do get problems,

:06:33.:06:35.

we need to make sure that the right things are in place.

:06:36.:06:39.

We need to make sure that pdople are having their annual foot checks

:06:40.:06:42.

and they are given the right advice based on that.

:06:43.:06:44.

If they have got problems they should be referred to foot

:06:45.:06:47.

protection teams and to multidisciplinary foot care teams

:06:48.:06:49.

and we know a number of places have been slow to put those

:06:50.:06:54.

foot protections teams and multidiscipline foot care

:06:55.:06:55.

When you go to see a doctor, you would expect that.

:06:56.:07:02.

Is this down to doctors not checking people properly?

:07:03.:07:04.

Or is it down to people's lhfestyles because there are two

:07:05.:07:07.

Everyone with diabetes should have their feet checked

:07:08.:07:11.

If they have got problems, they go more than that.

:07:12.:07:20.

It is usually a practise nurse who is doing that foot check.

:07:21.:07:26.

We know that a number of people who go to have their feet checked

:07:27.:07:34.

don't get asked to take thehr shoes and socks off and get asked how

:07:35.:07:37.

They need to have their foot looked at and their nerves tested

:07:38.:07:42.

and their pulses checked and to make sure everything is working `ll right

:07:43.:07:45.

and if it is not working all right, they need to be referred

:07:46.:07:48.

to a specialist team as quickly as possible to get the care

:07:49.:07:51.

they need and sometimes those foot teams are not in place.

:07:52.:07:54.

So at Diabetes UK, are you concerned at what the figures show?

:07:55.:07:57.

It's always worrying when fhgures increasing and amputation r`tes

:07:58.:07:59.

are rising in some areas and people with diabetes are rising

:08:00.:08:01.

which is also going to incrdase the number of amputations so yes,

:08:02.:08:04.

it is very worrying that we have this problem.

:08:05.:08:06.

What we need to do is make sure that the NHS services,

:08:07.:08:09.

a clinical commissioning groups who commission services makd sure

:08:10.:08:12.

that they don't get complacdnt about some figures improving

:08:13.:08:14.

and actually really invest in future.

:08:15.:08:15.

There's more on this on Inshde Out on BBC One tonight at 7.30pl.

:08:16.:08:25.

There is a key vote this evdning on proposals for three

:08:26.:08:27.

of the biggest councils along the Solent to join forces.

:08:28.:08:30.

Portsmouth and Southampton have already said they want

:08:31.:08:32.

to have a combined authoritx which would have its

:08:33.:08:37.

Last week the Isle of Wight council narrowly rejected the plan,

:08:38.:08:41.

but the final decision rests with the Executive which has

:08:42.:08:44.

Later on South Today, success for British Athletes

:08:45.:08:48.

as thousands took to the streets of Portsmouth in the Great South

:08:49.:08:51.

She became the poster girl for female aviators everywhdre.

:08:52.:08:59.

Tracey Curtis-Taylor, who dubbed herself the "Bird

:09:00.:09:05.

in a Biplane", was lauded for her solo trip from Cape Town

:09:06.:09:10.

Later, she flew from Farnborough, in Hampshire, to Sydney,

:09:11.:09:14.

But she has been stripped of an award for her Cape Town

:09:15.:09:18.

flight in a row over whether she used a co-pilot

:09:19.:09:21.

She is one of the most celebrated women in aviation who traversed the

:09:22.:09:37.

globe in this open cockpit by plane. Now one of Tracey Curtis-Taxlor s

:09:38.:09:40.

previous expeditions is unddr a cloud. Three years ago she flew

:09:41.:09:45.

10,000 miles across Africa supposedly alone. But this weekend,

:09:46.:09:50.

the light aircraft associathon confirmed members voted to rescind a

:09:51.:09:54.

prestigious trophy for solo flying. The row began after a key tdam

:09:55.:10:00.

member Sam Rutherford claimdd Tracey Curtis-Taylor only flew a slall part

:10:01.:10:05.

of the journey solo. He told the BBC that on that basis, he had `dvised

:10:06.:10:09.

her not to accept awards, btt was ignored. Tracey Curtis-Taylor is a

:10:10.:10:17.

celebrated aviation, who was emulating Lady Mayor's crossing of

:10:18.:10:23.

Africa. She was uncontactable today, but says:

:10:24.:10:47.

But in the uncompromising aviation world, definitions tend to be set in

:10:48.:10:53.

stone. Solo means what it s`ys. You are the only person in the cockpit.

:10:54.:10:57.

If the flight is half an hotr, and you're the only person in there

:10:58.:11:01.

that's solo. Equally, sever`l thousand hours flying around the

:11:02.:11:04.

world is also solo. Floss ldgal minimum to call it solo. Thd legal

:11:05.:11:08.

definition means that you h`ve to be the only person in the cockpit.

:11:09.:11:13.

The row has not affected Tr`cey Curtis-Taylor's passion for flying.

:11:14.:11:16.

Last year she completed a 14,00 mile three month flight frol

:11:17.:11:20.

Farnborough to Australia. Only last month her latest endeavour to fly

:11:21.:11:26.

across the US ended suddenlx in the arropeb za desert and there could be

:11:27.:11:32.

rough weather ahead for her retractors as she says she hs

:11:33.:11:33.

considering legal action. Unions were summoned to Parliament,

:11:34.:11:38.

this afternoon, to give evidence to MPs about the Southern R`il

:11:39.:11:41.

strike which has caused chaos for commuters in Sussex,

:11:42.:11:43.

Surrey and Hampshire. Our Political Reporter Mark Coles

:11:44.:11:45.

followed the meeting and johns us Well, Sally it was mostly ddtailed

:11:46.:11:57.

technical evidence about thd wider impacts of rail franchises, but the

:11:58.:12:00.

chairman asked a question, what are the prospects, she said, for a

:12:01.:12:03.

resolution of the Southern Rail dispute? Mick Cash from the RMT took

:12:04.:12:09.

the bait and said, "I want ` meeting with the transport secretarx. He

:12:10.:12:13.

said the problem lies as much with the department as the company that

:12:14.:12:20.

runs Southern Rail." What I can t understand is why MPs who rdpresent

:12:21.:12:25.

constituents of southern constituents are prepared to accept

:12:26.:12:28.

less for their constituents than what we've got in Scotland, what

:12:29.:12:32.

we've got in Great Western `nd on the East Coast. So the ball is

:12:33.:12:37.

firmly in the DFT's hands and I m hoping they will sit down whth us

:12:38.:12:41.

because we put viable soluthons to them and I hope we can get `round a

:12:42.:12:45.

table and solve it. One of the MPs, the Sussex MP, wasn't having any of

:12:46.:12:49.

that. He rounded on Mr Cash and said he was playing politics. In

:12:50.:12:54.

exceptional circumstances, when it is safe to operate the train, as it

:12:55.:12:58.

is on 40% of the network, I want to go home rather than wait another

:12:59.:13:01.

hour. I don't think it is s`fe for people to have to get off the train

:13:02.:13:04.

and not be able to leave thd station. So, to me, your issue about

:13:05.:13:10.

safety is gamesmanship and H put it to you what this really comds down

:13:11.:13:14.

to, if your members are not critical to the operation of that tr`in then

:13:15.:13:18.

all of a sudden when you call a strike it doesn't make any

:13:19.:13:21.

difference. Needless to say the union leaders disagreed. Thdy said

:13:22.:13:26.

rail privatisation has been a spectacular failure and the dispute

:13:27.:13:31.

about conductors on Southern Rail was evidence that rail franchising

:13:32.:13:34.

wasn't working. Mark, thank you very much.

:13:35.:13:39.

Work to carve a new badge into a hillside at Fovant

:13:40.:13:42.

The Flanders poppy, which is 25 metres across,

:13:43.:13:45.

sits alongside eight other regimental badges.

:13:46.:13:46.

It's the first new chalk emblem since 1970, and marks the 100th

:13:47.:13:49.

It's a building which has bden around since Tudor times.

:13:50.:13:56.

A mansion once owned by one of Henry VIII's most senior advisers.

:13:57.:13:59.

But, perhaps rather approprhately, it's losing its head.

:14:00.:14:01.

The roof of The Vyne mansion, in Basingstoke,

:14:02.:14:03.

They're giving King Henry VHII a professional deep clean bdfore

:14:04.:14:13.

The Tudor monarch made several visits to the Vyne.

:14:14.:14:20.

The property houses a collection of art and furniture

:14:21.:14:25.

dating back 500 years, but two years ago water leaked in.

:14:26.:14:30.

It is 150 years since the l`st major work on the roof so now

:14:31.:14:34.

the National Trust is starthng a ?5 million restoration project.

:14:35.:14:38.

We know this was once part of a major Tudor mansion.

:14:39.:14:40.

Henry came here at least three times.

:14:41.:14:42.

Twice with Catherine of Aragon and once with Ann Berlin.

:14:43.:14:47.

We know that everyone learns Tudors when at school so Henry VIIH,

:14:48.:14:50.

that iconic historical figure and we want to make sure

:14:51.:14:54.

that we preserve this buildhng because it has been here for over

:14:55.:14:57.

500 years and we want to make sure that people learning the Tudors

:14:58.:15:00.

in years to come will have ` chance to step in the footsteps

:15:01.:15:03.

of when Henry came here with Ann Berlin.

:15:04.:15:05.

They will rebuild collapsing chimneys and crumbling parapets

:15:06.:15:07.

We will have the opportunitx to look at a lot of the detail

:15:08.:15:13.

of the carpentry and constrtction and we will be able to see how

:15:14.:15:17.

someone from the 16th century was thinking about how

:15:18.:15:19.

they would configure a roof of this size.

:15:20.:15:21.

The lawn around the house is being discovered with

:15:22.:15:24.

Stone work is being protectdd with wooden casing and everx paving

:15:25.:15:29.

stone to be lifted is being numbered so it can be precisely

:15:30.:15:32.

Inside the roof, they have tncovered marks, carved for

:15:33.:15:35.

What we have got here is a protective mark.

:15:36.:15:40.

It was believed at that timd demons and witches could enter the building

:15:41.:15:43.

and by using the circle marks, they are common on churches known

:15:44.:15:55.

as consercration crosses, it was believed they could

:15:56.:15:56.

keep the bad spirtsz from out of the building.

:15:57.:15:59.

The superstitious markings have inspired the charity to start

:16:00.:16:01.

a fund-raising project towards the restoration costs.

:16:02.:16:04.

People can draw their own ddpictions on the back of the new roof tiles.

:16:05.:16:14.

The Vyne have stay open throughout the 18 month project and visitors

:16:15.:16:17.

will be able to go on an aerial walkway to get a bird's eye view

:16:18.:16:20.

Something I didn't know was interesting was those circlds.

:16:21.:16:31.

The sun shone for thousands of runners from across the region

:16:32.:16:43.

at yesterday's Great South Run in Portsmouth.

:16:44.:16:46.

It was the 27th staging of `n event which has been in the city now

:16:47.:16:50.

for more than a quarter of a century, and there was plenty

:16:51.:16:52.

There hasn't been a British winner in the men's race at the Grdat South

:16:53.:17:02.

Run since Mo Farah in 2009. But Chris Thompson produced a fhne run

:17:03.:17:06.

to outpace his local rival to take victory over ten miles. The

:17:07.:17:10.

conditions so often treacherous on a Sunday in October, played to the

:17:11.:17:16.

elite athletes favour. Thompson at 35, turned the tables on Olxmpian

:17:17.:17:21.

Vernon, the pair finished in the reverse order last week in

:17:22.:17:25.

Birmingham. The winning margin 6 seconds. A British one and two,

:17:26.:17:29.

three was completed through Matt Sharp in. In the women's race, this

:17:30.:17:37.

athlete had a great South Rtn debut to remember. She outpaced hdr rivals

:17:38.:17:42.

by a minute with a sprint fhnish to claim victory. But for so m`ny

:17:43.:17:46.

others this run was about r`ising funds for charity. 25,000 would take

:17:47.:17:51.

part in events this weekend and many more will be inspired. It is amazing

:17:52.:17:54.

how many people have been pdrsuaded over the years to get involved and

:17:55.:18:00.

take part. We had a AK yestdrday and many hundreds of those will go on

:18:01.:18:04.

and tackle the ten miler next year. Yeah, it is brilliant. Even in

:18:05.:18:09.

places you expect to be quidt, there is kids with bowls of sweets and

:18:10.:18:13.

people playing loud music and when you hear your name, you get a spring

:18:14.:18:18.

in your step. I would do it again. Next year will be the 28th staging

:18:19.:18:24.

of this event. The Great Run proving great for Portsmouth too.

:18:25.:18:27.

Meanwhile an appeal has gond out for anyone who might have found

:18:28.:18:30.

an engagement ring which has been in a family for generations.

:18:31.:18:33.

Lee Mallon from Bournemouth posted this on social media,

:18:34.:18:35.

the ring was lost somewhere on the course yesterday

:18:36.:18:37.

Southampton ended a run of six consecutive defeats

:18:38.:18:47.

at Manchester City with a point at the Etihad yesterday.

:18:48.:18:51.

Saints took the lead when Nathan Redmond seized on a poor

:18:52.:18:54.

back pass from John Stones to put Claude Puel's men in front.

:18:55.:19:01.

Stones had a goal disallowed for off-side before the bre`k.

:19:02.:19:03.

Then after half time Kelechi Ihenacho levelled things up.

:19:04.:19:05.

Saints are eightth and feelhng good despite a busy period of fixtures.

:19:06.:19:09.

They have been on a bit of a tough run at the moment,

:19:10.:19:13.

but we have been in good form and it was just about taking

:19:14.:19:16.

a positive mindset into the game and once we went 1-0 up we felt

:19:17.:19:19.

a little bit comfortable, btt it is still a difficult place to come

:19:20.:19:22.

We're going to take it as a positive and take into the Cup

:19:23.:19:25.

The main talking point at Bournemouth was an appardnt elbow

:19:26.:19:32.

by Moussa Sissoko in the face of midfielder Harry Arter, Sissoko

:19:33.:19:36.

Edie Howe said he was even happier than after the 6-1 win over Hull

:19:37.:19:42.

last week as the Cherries, who hit the bar through
