In tonight's programme: Bird flu in Dorset -

:00:00.:00:09.

cases in the county - but it's feared dozens more swans

:00:10.:00:15.

It's a very serious condition for the birds and it strikes the young

:00:16.:00:25.

ones particularly very hard. I cannot get over the fact that

:00:26.:00:35.

grown adults cannot sit around a table and actually come to some kind

:00:36.:00:39.

of compromise. Miserable is the word. You're being held to ransom

:00:40.:00:41.

effectively. As commuters face another

:00:42.:00:43.

strike the both sides in the Southern Rail dispute go head

:00:44.:00:46.

to head in a televised debate. His boat may be damaged but could

:00:47.:00:49.

Hampshire's Alex Thomson now win And the Wiltshire couple

:00:50.:00:52.

boldly going where no When the opportunity presents

:00:53.:00:59.

itself, you just say yes. An outbreak of bird flu has been

:01:00.:01:14.

confirmed at the famous Abbotsbury Swannery

:01:15.:01:22.

near Weymouth in Dorset. Nine swans have tested positive

:01:23.:01:24.

for the H5N8 strain of the disease. Last month, the government

:01:25.:01:27.

ordered poultry farmers to take precautions -

:01:28.:01:28.

to try to stop the spread of the virus from wild birds

:01:29.:01:33.

to commercial and domestic flocks. One Dorset egg farm says

:01:34.:01:36.

the restrictions are having an impact on the welfare

:01:37.:01:38.

of their chickens, Reporter Steve Humphrey is at

:01:39.:01:40.

Abbotsbury Swannery this evening. But the new discovery of the virus

:01:41.:01:44.

here isn't totally unexpected. There've been cases across Europe,

:01:45.:01:59.

and it arrived here last month, with outbreaks in Wales

:02:00.:02:02.

and Scotland, and a number of English counties,

:02:03.:02:04.

including Gloucestershire, where the wetland reserve

:02:05.:02:05.

at Slimbridge was affected. Since New Year, there've been

:02:06.:02:07.

further cases in Devon and Wales, but the outbreak here

:02:08.:02:09.

is the biggest so far. Confirmation of the presence of the

:02:10.:02:24.

bird flu virus here that Abbotsbury 's winery came after ten dead swans

:02:25.:02:30.

were sent for tests. Nine tested positive for the H5N8 strain of the

:02:31.:02:35.

disease. Very concerned for the birds. It's not a threat to our

:02:36.:02:39.

staff or humans generally, that's been confirmed by the health

:02:40.:02:44.

agencies, so that's the good thing, but it is a very serious condition

:02:45.:02:48.

for the birds down there and it doesn't strike the young ones

:02:49.:02:53.

particularly very hard. So far this winter, around 80 swans have been

:02:54.:02:59.

found dead, double the usual number for the winter period. Back in 2008,

:03:00.:03:11.

the area was hit by the more valuable -- gent hey-mac strain but

:03:12.:03:17.

precautions were put in place. It was a different strain which they

:03:18.:03:21.

thought might be harmful to humans. We lost less birds then then we have

:03:22.:03:27.

this time. At the start of December, the Government ordered poultry farms

:03:28.:03:30.

to bring free range hens in doors and to take precautions in a bid to

:03:31.:03:35.

stop the virus spreading. They say they are disappointed that death

:03:36.:03:45.

Defra didn't tell them about the presence of the virus at Abbotsbury.

:03:46.:03:52.

You want more information? Yes, I feel it isn't good enough. Keeping

:03:53.:04:00.

hens indoors has led to a substantial cut in production. 20%

:04:01.:04:04.

of what we normally get so for us financially, it's quite a big

:04:05.:04:13.

impact, really. the motion was -- the measures imposed to help

:04:14.:04:16.

restrict the spread of bird flu will be in place until February 28.

:04:17.:04:21.

Abbotsbury is closed at the moment. People are hoping the bird flu virus

:04:22.:04:30.

runs its course by the time it is reopened on March 18.

:04:31.:04:31.

A little earlier I spoke to England's Chief Veterinary

:04:32.:04:33.

Officer, Nigel Gibbens, he gave me his reaction

:04:34.:04:35.

We've seen the disease spread through wild birds throughout Europe

:04:36.:04:45.

There is little that can be done because these are wild birds but it

:04:46.:05:00.

does show the level of infection that is present

:05:01.:05:02.

How worried are you that this might spread from there?

:05:03.:05:06.

There's a constant threat from different wild birds.

:05:07.:05:09.

The important thing is we prevent it getting into kept birds,

:05:10.:05:12.

like commercial birds and birds people keep in their backyards.

:05:13.:05:14.

We are keen to advise people to do everything they can to keep birds

:05:15.:05:18.

Public Health England have looked carefully at this and confirmed

:05:19.:05:39.

This is a bird flu that is affecting only birds and hasn't affected

:05:40.:05:44.

people and the Food Standards Agency has said the food

:05:45.:05:47.

Just how concerned are you this year?

:05:48.:05:49.

This is a very serious disease of birds.

:05:50.:05:51.

It is highly infectious and causes diseases,

:05:52.:05:53.

especially in chickens and turkeys, but also potentially swans and geese

:05:54.:06:00.

so it is a particularly serious disease in birds but the good thing

:06:01.:06:07.

is that it's not causing any harm to humans so we need people to keep

:06:08.:06:11.

this disease out of their kept birds, whether it's

:06:12.:06:13.

in their backyard or a commercial poultry farm.

:06:14.:06:18.

Another strike by drivers on Southern Railway

:06:19.:06:20.

The company says no trains will run tomorrow, on Wednesday or Friday.

:06:21.:06:26.

Meanwhile, a strike on London Underground has been

:06:27.:06:28.

causing major disruption for all commuters that was due

:06:29.:06:32.

A BBC news special to be broadcast this evening debates

:06:33.:06:37.

the Southern Rail issues, and hears from passengers.

:06:38.:06:38.

Our transport correspondent Paul Clifton reports.

:06:39.:06:46.

Britain's first rail strike in 20 years has meant misery for hundreds

:06:47.:06:51.

and thousands of people. the debate generated plenty of heat and

:06:52.:06:56.

sunlight, too. It is causing unprecedented disruption to working

:06:57.:07:02.

people. the debate saw the head of Southern's parent company go

:07:03.:07:04.

head-to-head with the leader of the RMT union. There will be a second

:07:05.:07:13.

safety trained person. Guaranteed on every train? Let him speak, for

:07:14.:07:20.

goodness' sake. We will foster a second safety trained person on as

:07:21.:07:28.

many trains as had them before. He won't say it. A second safety

:07:29.:07:35.

trained person on as many trains as we had before this started. What's

:07:36.:07:39.

stopping the settlement of the attitude of the company towards

:07:40.:07:43.

changing the way that trains operated, backed up by Chris

:07:44.:07:48.

Grayling and are refusing to come to compromise. It was a chance for

:07:49.:07:52.

passengers to face the people responsible for ten months of

:07:53.:07:56.

strikes. July I had quit my job and taking a job closer to home, losing

:07:57.:08:02.

myself ?7,000 a year but I did it so I could see my son because you could

:08:03.:08:06.

not get me home on time to do so. Might only -- my journey time is 2.5

:08:07.:08:14.

hours and led to the break-up of our relationship. How did you sleep at

:08:15.:08:21.

night? It's complete and utter nonsense. Afterwards, the company

:08:22.:08:30.

and union had a chat, not formal talks but at least they didn't leave

:08:31.:08:31.

by separate doors without speaking. The Southern dispute has brought

:08:32.:08:35.

misery to thousands of commuters on a daily basis over the past 11

:08:36.:08:37.

months, and every night this week, we're going to be hearing

:08:38.:08:41.

from someone whose life has Tonight, Joe Campbell has been

:08:42.:08:43.

talking to a charity worker now facing a commute which takes two

:08:44.:08:47.

or three times longer Alison wasn't at home today because

:08:48.:09:03.

of her birthday because orbs of getting to the charity office where

:09:04.:09:06.

she works had been scuppered by the tube strike. My very first day, my

:09:07.:09:14.

first week, was when the strike started, so the timing was just

:09:15.:09:22.

unbelievable. It's what happens, you turn up early and find out your

:09:23.:09:25.

claim has been cancelled. Even when the trains are running, getting from

:09:26.:09:30.

Crawley to her office is a nightmare. Alison recorded her

:09:31.:09:35.

journey on this video diary. Finally at Victoria and this is what you

:09:36.:09:40.

get. That isn't enough, you then get handed leaflets telling you things

:09:41.:09:46.

like this. I cannot get over the fact that grown adults cannot sit

:09:47.:09:51.

around a table and actually come to some sort of compromise, agreement,

:09:52.:09:56.

something, and that it would take this long. Alison's job means she

:09:57.:10:01.

can work from home on strike days and she accepts others are in a far

:10:02.:10:08.

worse situation. She says she isn't prounion or management, instead she

:10:09.:10:12.

is on the side of her fellow commuters. I pay almost ?4500 for a

:10:13.:10:17.

season ticket when you don't even get a seat, you get this miserable

:10:18.:10:22.

service, you're surrounded by people who just want to get to work and

:10:23.:10:27.

come home like you. It is miserable, that is the word, you're being held

:10:28.:10:31.

to ransom, effectively. Our transport correspondent

:10:32.:10:35.

Paul Clifton is here - The company and the unions

:10:36.:10:37.

are still poles apart. Last week the drivers' union said

:10:38.:10:43.

they weren't so much on different planets

:10:44.:10:45.

as occupying separate universes. We've had two separate and very

:10:46.:10:50.

detailed industry studies by safety experts which show that driver only

:10:51.:10:56.

operation is safe. And perhaps safer than

:10:57.:11:02.

operation with a guard. The unions have completely dismissed

:11:03.:11:04.

those studies, saying train So from midnight the misery

:11:05.:11:09.

for commuters starts all over again. Tomorrow there will be no trains

:11:10.:11:14.

on Southern Railway at all. The company will lay on buses

:11:15.:11:17.

from Chichester and Horsham, but they will carry just a tiny

:11:18.:11:21.

fraction of the normal passengers. Its advice to passengers

:11:22.:11:24.

is not to travel, and to Wednesday will follow

:11:25.:11:26.

the same pattern. Trains will run on Thursday

:11:27.:11:31.

but be severely disrupted, then on Friday there will again be

:11:32.:11:34.

no trains at all. And a reminder that you can see

:11:35.:11:36.

the debate in full this evening There's also a special extended

:11:37.:11:39.

programme on Radio Sussex and Radio Solent, starting

:11:40.:11:43.

at seven tonight. A new report has found

:11:44.:11:47.

Gatwick Airport contributed ?5.3 billion to the UK's

:11:48.:11:49.

economy last year. The research by Oxford Economics

:11:50.:11:51.

also shows the facility could support an extra 13,000

despite telling workers last year that Brexit would limit its ability

to plan and budget for the future. Today the Goodwood-based company

:13:40.:13:42.

reported a 6% rise in sales. Last year, it delivered just over

:13:43.:13:45.

4,000 cars to customers, the second-highest sales

record in its history. It's consistently voted one

of the best places to live in the hole of the UK,

but over the decades many feel Wokingham Town centre has

:14:02.:14:04.

been showing its age. Now, after five years of delay,

:14:05.:14:06.

work is finally starting on the regeneration of the main

:14:07.:14:11.

shopping area, Peach Street. A completely new public

:14:12.:14:14.

square will be created, but the council is warning of no

:14:15.:14:16.

gain without pain, with severe delays expected in one

:14:17.:14:19.

of the busiest towns in Berkshire. As a main shopping street,

:14:20.:14:21.

Peach Street has been a bit It's going to be

:14:22.:14:30.

very Wokinghamesque. It's not going to be this

:14:31.:14:43.

street you see right now. This redevelopment will cost ?24

:14:44.:14:50.

million but the busy thoroughfare will be down to just one lane

:14:51.:14:53.

for 15 weeks. A stone's throw away,

the popular Rose Street car park Congestion in the town

isn't good, but we need Not a lot of character

:14:58.:15:01.

at the moment, a few shops. I think more independent

shops would be lovely. I work in mental health and I'd

like to see more money Completely redeveloping a main

:15:12.:15:14.

part of the town centre As well as the destruction caused

:15:15.:15:22.

to the thoroughfare, we have counted eating into units

and all those shops had As the council bought

:15:31.:15:34.

to make a profit. They say they're going

:15:35.:15:41.

to make the money back. We would have kept the car park

:15:42.:15:43.

and instead of building houses on Rose Street, we would have

:15:44.:15:48.

created a memorial garden. This is the investment we have

:15:49.:15:51.

wanted for years and years, to stop The Peach Street project is expected

:15:52.:15:54.

to finally bear fruit when it Let's move on to sport. We're going

:15:55.:16:22.

to start with sailing. You don't think of the word exciting when you

:16:23.:16:29.

hear about a round the world race. I've been watching Alex Thomson over

:16:30.:16:33.

the Christmas period. When he was passing Cape Horn, now he's so close

:16:34.:16:44.

to the leader. You slowdown in the doldrums and shall be hoping he can

:16:45.:16:55.

get some wind. It is an amazing event, the biggest challenge of them

:16:56.:16:58.

all. We think it's probably got about a week to go.

:16:59.:17:00.

The gap is just under 100 miles and shortening as Alex Thomson

:17:01.:17:03.

attempts to make history and become the first Briton to win

:17:04.:17:06.

The Gosport sailor aboard Hugo Boss has had a terrific few days

:17:07.:17:11.

as he heads up to the finish in Western France, approaching

:17:12.:17:14.

an area in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans known for light winds

:17:15.:17:17.

and when Thomson sent this update, he'd seen his boat

:17:18.:17:19.

Firmly in the doldrums, had a terrible night last night.

:17:20.:17:30.

There's been some wind that I wasn't expecting and I'm

:17:31.:17:36.

There's definitely going to be another slowdown before we get

:17:37.:17:40.

there, the easterly breeze is going to come in

:17:41.:17:42.

We'll have more on the race tomorrow night.

:17:43.:17:53.

The draw for the FA cup fourth round is coming up at 7

:17:54.:17:56.

o'clock over on BBC2, but only two of the region's sides

:17:57.:17:59.

On a weekend where there was very little magic sprinkled around

:18:00.:18:05.

Michael Appleton's men served up a victory against higher

:18:06.:18:07.

Brighton too, secured their place in the next round.

:18:08.:18:13.

Brighton and Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton was named Manager

:18:14.:18:15.

of the Month for December and January started well too.

:18:16.:18:18.

He made 11 changes to his side, but the gamble paid off.

:18:19.:18:21.

It took a while for the Albion to put league one Dons away,

:18:22.:18:30.

but a free header 18 minutes from time means the promotion

:18:31.:18:34.

chasers are into round four for the seventh time in eight years.

:18:35.:18:43.

The first one put us very much on the road and gave us

:18:44.:18:46.

that lift we needed, probably at a period of the game

:18:47.:18:49.

where MK were pushing to get back as a real threat.

:18:50.:18:53.

Rotherham are bottom of the Championship so perhaps it

:18:54.:18:57.

wasn't a shock that Oxford hit the heights at the New York Stadium.

:18:58.:19:03.

McGuire missed a penalty but before long, Ryan Taylor gave them the lead

:19:04.:19:07.

Rotherham levelled, but Oxford were on course for a convincing cup

:19:08.:19:10.

win when Phil Edwards headed in a corner.

:19:11.:19:12.

Then a dangerous cross made it three.

:19:13.:19:14.

Rotherham made the finish interesting, but this header

:19:15.:19:16.

It would be fantastic if we can get a tie against a Premier League side,

:19:17.:19:25.

to give players and fans a chance to go head-to-head

:19:26.:19:28.

Southampton were seconds from going through at Norwich.

:19:29.:19:35.

The not-for-sale Van Dyke volleyed them in front.

:19:36.:19:37.

The teenage debutant Harry Lewis led to his giving away a penalty,

:19:38.:19:40.

converted by Steven Whittaker to level the scores.

:19:41.:19:46.

This super header sent them through and they won't have wanted

:19:47.:19:48.

a replay with the FA Cup semifinal to come, but that's exactly

:19:49.:19:51.

what the face after Steven Naismith's injury-time header.

:19:52.:20:00.

Details of the draw in a moment, but first, the losers this weekend.

:20:01.:20:04.

Eddie Howe admitted with hindsight he regretted making 11 changes

:20:05.:20:06.

as a virtual Bournemouth reserve team lost at Millwall.

:20:07.:20:13.

There weren't too many recognisable figures on the team bus,

:20:14.:20:16.

but a side that's still valued at 40 million shouldn't have

:20:17.:20:19.

capitulated so easily against third-tier opponents.

:20:20.:20:20.

The home side were in front through Steve Morrison before

:20:21.:20:23.

the break and added two more in the second half

:20:24.:20:25.

through Shaun Cummings and Shane Ferguson in stoppage time.

:20:26.:20:27.

Jaap Stam was back at Old Trafford but it was a visit to forget

:20:28.:20:31.

Wayne Rooney's record equalling goal had United on their way to a 5-0

:20:32.:20:35.

It was game over pretty quickly for the Royals.

:20:36.:20:42.

Goalkeeper Al Habsi had a moment to forget too,

:20:43.:20:44.

And Martin Allen said he enjoyed his return to Brentford

:20:45.:20:53.

but his Eastleigh team from the national league were well

:20:54.:20:55.

beaten by the Championship side who stormed into a 3-0 lead

:20:56.:20:58.

Eyeowe Obileye got on the score sheet but the game was over

:20:59.:21:07.

by the break as Brentford powered their way into a 5-1 lead,

:21:08.:21:10.

the non-leaguers out in round three for the second successive year.

:21:11.:21:14.

All the goals are on the BBC website.

:21:15.:21:16.

The draw is live on BBC2 straight after this programme.

:21:17.:21:20.

Brighton are ball 9, Southampton are 29 along with Norwich.

:21:21.:21:27.

The ties are played over the final weekend of January.

:21:28.:21:37.

Claude Puel says he won't select wantaway captain Jose Fnote

:21:38.:21:40.

in Wednesday's EFL cup semifinal first leg against Liverpool.

:21:41.:21:46.

Southampton's Moroccan international Sofianne Boufal is out

:21:47.:21:48.

of the African Cup of Nations due to a knee injury and Nathan Ake has

:21:49.:21:51.

been recalled by Chelsea from his loan spell at Bournemouth.

:21:52.:21:58.

The local derby on the ice between Basingstoke Bison

:21:59.:22:00.

and Bracknell bees was won by the Bison.

:22:01.:22:02.

They triumphed 5-2 in the English premier league clash last night It

:22:03.:22:05.

made it a weekend double for the Bison, who beat

:22:06.:22:08.

Peterborough Phantoms 6-1 over the weekend.

:22:09.:22:09.

Slovakian Rene Jarolin got 4 of the 6 goals.

:22:10.:22:12.

They won 7-1 at Manchester last night.

:22:13.:22:22.

Some cricket news, and another South African is coming

:22:23.:22:24.

to the region under the freedom of movement clause known in sport

:22:25.:22:27.

David Wiese has agreed a three-year deal at Sussex.

:22:28.:22:34.

The 31-year-old all-rounder has played 20 T20 internationals

:22:35.:22:36.

He has played for Sussex before, having featured

:22:37.:22:39.

The move is subject to English cricket board approval.

:22:40.:22:47.

Would you get into a flap at the prospect of a long trip

:22:48.:22:54.

I did it between Antarctica and Chile and I was scared.

:22:55.:23:07.

If not, how about flying more than three-thousand miles

:23:08.:23:11.

in a microlight over Europe, and the Sahara desert down

:23:12.:23:13.

Well, one couple from Wiltshire are planning to do just that.

:23:14.:23:17.

It's never been officially tried in this class of aircraft.

:23:18.:23:20.

They are often seen in the skies, but how about flying thousands

:23:21.:23:25.

Julian and Sarah are both qualified pilots.

:23:26.:23:31.

They want to take on the Paris to Dakar rally route.

:23:32.:23:33.

It's going to take us to parts of the world

:23:34.:23:38.

we've never been in, it's going to stretch

:23:39.:23:41.

Microlights look like small planes but the wings are essentially

:23:42.:23:48.

The panels are extremely thin and you can lift them with one hand.

:23:49.:23:54.

The couple will take off from Wiltshire, flying down

:23:55.:23:56.

through France and Spain across to Africa through

:23:57.:24:00.

Morocco, Western Sahara and Mauritania to Dakar.

:24:01.:24:06.

The terrain will be remote and inhospitable

:24:07.:24:09.

There are miles where the Sahara desert goes into the Atlantic Ocean

:24:10.:24:19.

We live very long way away from help.

:24:20.:24:22.

-- They don't have complex instruments.

:24:23.:24:30.

Bad weather and cloud will force you down.

:24:31.:24:37.

It's a little cockleshell of a planes so if it gets windy

:24:38.:24:40.

or if it looks like there might be rain to content with, you have

:24:41.:24:43.

Julian and Sarah hope to raise money for the charity Water Aid.

:24:44.:24:50.

Before that, they still need to raise around ?10,000

:24:51.:24:52.

They hope to set off sometime next spring.

:24:53.:25:00.

Good luck. Onto the weather. Let's look at the weather pictures.

:25:01.:25:09.

Dan Mapes photographed the cloudy skies in Mudeford.

:25:10.:25:11.

Cathy Anning captured a buck at Bolderwood in the New Forest.

:25:12.:25:14.

And Anthony Morris took this picture of the cloudy skies

:25:15.:25:16.

A mild started the day and a lot of rain, it has been patchy and

:25:17.:25:32.

drizzly. We will see sunny spells tomorrow. Before that, a mild

:25:33.:25:36.

started a week, breezy with some rain for sun but turning colder from

:25:37.:25:39.

the latter part of Wednesday and more so through Thursday daytime.

:25:40.:25:44.

Overnight tonight, a few clear spells, so the chance of the odd

:25:45.:25:49.

shower and a breeze will increase during the early hours of the

:25:50.:25:56.

morning with the lows of 329 Celsius -- three. Some patchy rain, may be

:25:57.:26:07.

light and drizzly with the high of seven or 10 Celsius. You please

:26:08.:26:13.

tomorrow, feeling cooler and fresher -- a breeze. The chance of light

:26:14.:26:20.

rain or drizzle at times but dry weather as well and temperatures

:26:21.:26:27.

dropping to seven or eight Celsius. Tomorrow will be a lot milder than

:26:28.:26:33.

tonight. Wednesday, a damn, drizzly start but it will improve. Still a

:26:34.:26:38.

lot of cloud through the course of the day. It will feel chilly with

:26:39.:26:42.

the northwesterly breeze digging in, I of nine to 10 Celsius -- highs.

:26:43.:26:54.

The rain will set into the course of Thursday, digging into the North,

:26:55.:27:00.

cold through Thursday daytime, the chance of the odd, isolated wintry

:27:01.:27:04.

shower and snow or sleet but we're not expecting any accumulations of

:27:05.:27:11.

snow in any places. Friday, the odd snow showers possible. Sleet and

:27:12.:27:14.

snow in places and as we look ahead to the weekend, it should be cold

:27:15.:27:19.

with that northerly wind, wintry showers possible, but there will be

:27:20.:27:30.

dry weather as well. United scored four goals, not five, apologies.

:27:31.:27:34.

There'll be a summary at 8pm and we'll be back at 10:30pm.

:27:35.:27:41.
