Good evening. Welcome to South Today.

:00:00.:00:00.

Service families say their complaints for improved

:00:00.:00:08.

It doesn't seem like we're important enough to care about making

:00:09.:00:14.

Calls for tougher sentences on the organisers of dog

:00:15.:00:19.

fighting as the RSPA records an increase in incidents.

:00:20.:00:25.

Three-year-old Marla's delight with her prosthetic arm

:00:26.:00:29.

Instead of that, "Oh, poor you," we get a, "Wow!

:00:30.:00:35.

I'm looking forward to getting to dry land again.

:00:36.:00:45.

And Gosport's Alex Thomson pushes hard to the finish,

:00:46.:00:48.

but has he got enough time to beat the Frenchman in the lead?

:00:49.:01:12.

The armed forces covenant says accommodation provided to military

:01:13.:01:14.

families should be 'of good quality, affordable and suitably located.'

:01:15.:01:16.

Yet, tonight we can reveal that families in the South are living

:01:17.:01:19.

Six months ago the firm in charge of maintaining them was threatened

:01:20.:01:23.

with losing its multi-million pound contract unless things improved.

:01:24.:01:25.

The Public Accounts Committee says they have, but that's not

:01:26.:01:28.

the experience of residents as Lewis Coombes reports.

:01:29.:01:32.

It's the battle that's closer to home.

:01:33.:01:34.

Military families fighting for an acceptable standard

:01:35.:01:37.

These are just some of the pictures sent to BBC South.

:01:38.:01:44.

Kim is married to an RAF pilot based in Hampshire.

:01:45.:01:47.

After 13 years, he's decided to leave his job,

:01:48.:01:50.

partly due to the state of military housing.

:01:51.:01:53.

A small leak from their boiler resulted in their lounge ceiling

:01:54.:01:56.

being replaced as it took nine months to fix what was initially

:01:57.:01:59.

Kim was heavily pregnant and recently diagnosed with cancer.

:02:00.:02:06.

I just don't know what happens between the people being called

:02:07.:02:08.

The process doesn't seem to work, the administration or the computer

:02:09.:02:13.

It did affect my health cos I was just so stressed about it

:02:14.:02:18.

and I was so focused about it and I felt so helpless.

:02:19.:02:22.

Carillion Amey maintains 47,000 homes in a five year contract

:02:23.:02:25.

If Carillion Amey is being paid by the MoD to do a certain job,

:02:26.:02:33.

BBC South has been inundated with families on e-mail talking

:02:34.:02:40.

about their experiences, but unwilling to do so on camera

:02:41.:02:43.

over fears of the consequences it could have on their jobs.

:02:44.:02:47.

It includes a solier of 22 years who's weighing up whether to leave

:02:48.:02:50.

the military because he's embarrassed about the standard

:02:51.:02:53.

of accommodation he's providing his family.

:02:54.:02:56.

A group of MPs have been tasked with holding those in charge

:02:57.:02:59.

Those wives are sitting looking after three kids

:03:00.:03:05.

while their husbands are flying Typhoos out of Akrotiri.

:03:06.:03:08.

That's not an acceptable support system.

:03:09.:03:11.

It should certainly not be leaving families in the state of young

:03:12.:03:14.

children and no heat, for example, and if that's happening,

:03:15.:03:17.

MoD figures show the average rent fo an unfurnished three bedroom service

:03:18.:03:23.

It's subsidised to help keep forces mobile, but families feel more

:03:24.:03:29.

It doesn't seem like we're important enough to care about making

:03:30.:03:34.

We expect our homes to be up to standard and then it

:03:35.:03:41.

Carillion Amey has apologised to Kim and insists it is "working hard

:03:42.:03:46.

for service personnel and their families and

:03:47.:03:48.

focusing on how they can improve things further.

:03:49.:03:51.

In a statement the MOD said "it will absolutely not hesitate to take

:03:52.:03:55.

Earlier, I spoke to the MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan,

:03:56.:04:06.

I began by asking her how things had changed over the past six months.

:04:07.:04:12.

Carillion Amey have made some real efforts to progress.

:04:13.:04:15.

They've improved their computer systems and tracking.

:04:16.:04:19.

That side of things is now working much better.

:04:20.:04:21.

The challenge that continues is, and it's something I raised

:04:22.:04:24.

in the Public Accounts Committee hearing that we had yesterday,

:04:25.:04:27.

is that actually stuff still isn't getting completed.

:04:28.:04:30.

A plumber might arrive, have a look, work out that he doesn't

:04:31.:04:33.

That can be logged as solving the problem and one

:04:34.:04:38.

of the challenges I set the department yesterday was to get

:04:39.:04:41.

some real clarity on what actually fixing the problem does look like.

:04:42.:04:45.

So that Carillion Amey have nowhere to go on that.

:04:46.:04:48.

1,300 complaints to the contractor in just one month.

:04:49.:04:51.

So on the ground, are you actually hearing the true story?

:04:52.:04:58.

Certainly families are contacting me and one of the challenges I have

:04:59.:05:01.

acting as their advocate here in Parliament is that many

:05:02.:05:04.

families still don't feel confident enough to actually contact me.

:05:05.:05:07.

I know you've set up this personal hotline.

:05:08.:05:12.

Families don't want to use it because of reprisals.

:05:13.:05:15.

They are concerned, they're not going to get in touch with you.

:05:16.:05:18.

They're not confident about getting in touch with you.

:05:19.:05:20.

I think that's the real challenge we have.

:05:21.:05:22.

I have confirmation from the head of people for the Army that it's

:05:23.:05:28.

absolutely fine for people to contact me on these matters,

:05:29.:05:30.

it's got nothing to do with defence, this is all about housing

:05:31.:05:33.

They can contact me privately anyway and we can work out how

:05:34.:05:38.

The Carillion Amey team are getting much better

:05:39.:05:43.

Otherwise people wouldn't be coming to us saying -

:05:44.:05:48.

The MoD is still holding about ?4 million from the contractor

:05:49.:05:53.

Do you anticipate they'll be hanging on to that even further and could it

:05:54.:05:58.

be that if the contractor doesn't come up with the goods

:05:59.:06:01.

and doesn't finish the job, they could terminate the contract?

:06:02.:06:05.

Yesterday the MoD people that we had in Public Accounts Committee talking

:06:06.:06:10.

to us were indicating that things had improved a lot

:06:11.:06:13.

and that they were minded to continue for now because change

:06:14.:06:17.

But I think we must be absolutely on top of this and I would urge

:06:18.:06:23.

families to contact me privately, so that I've got a much clearer

:06:24.:06:25.

Six months ago I spoke to you, we're speaking now.

:06:26.:06:30.

What will have changed in six months' time, do you think?

:06:31.:06:34.

I would hope that six months from now, I will be hearing

:06:35.:06:37.

from many former families who are frustrated by not getting

:06:38.:06:40.

the repairs done that they need so that their families

:06:41.:06:43.

Southern Railway is to resume a full train service from next

:06:44.:06:51.

Tuesday, for the first time since last summer.

:06:52.:06:53.

It held talks with the drivers' union all day.

:06:54.:06:55.

Aslef has suspended its strikes and overtime ban.

:06:56.:06:58.

But the RMT union, which represents conductors, is still due

:06:59.:07:01.

Southern says it will run four out of five trains that day,

:07:02.:07:06.

including serving Portsmouth and Southampton for the first

:07:07.:07:08.

Farmers say sheep attacks are on the rise and are calling

:07:09.:07:14.

for tougher action against dog owners whose pets attack

:07:15.:07:17.

In the last few days there have been fresh attacks in Sussex.

:07:18.:07:25.

Farmers there have met the Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne

:07:26.:07:27.

Sussex is a very rural area, we have a lot of farms,

:07:28.:07:32.

And these incidents are particularly distressing.

:07:33.:07:36.

The farmers are saying - are you taking it seriously?

:07:37.:07:38.

And my message to them is yes they are.

:07:39.:07:43.

But my plead to the public is whenever you see it,

:07:44.:07:46.

please do report it because intelligence is vital.

:07:47.:07:50.

More than 400 calls about organised dog fighting in the South have

:07:51.:07:53.

been made to the RSPCA in the past ten years.

:07:54.:07:58.

Now the animal charity and other campaigners are calling

:07:59.:08:00.

At the moment the maximum sentence is six months in prison.

:08:01.:08:06.

A warning that Peter Cooke's report contains some distressing images.

:08:07.:08:13.

The hidden world of illegal dog fighting.

:08:14.:08:18.

But animal rights groups say it's also been found on our streets.

:08:19.:08:22.

Rival gangs using animals as weapons.

:08:23.:08:25.

There is a strong link to dog fighting with crimes such

:08:26.:08:31.

as domestic violence, violence towards the elderly,

:08:32.:08:35.

And that's why it needs to be a recordable offence,

:08:36.:08:40.

rather than something that isn't properly recorded

:08:41.:08:43.

Because if it isn't recorded properly then the resources aren't

:08:44.:08:47.

put into investigating and catching the criminal.

:08:48.:08:51.

Despite 422 calls about organised dog fighting to the charity

:08:52.:08:56.

in the south since 2006, a tenth of the national total,

:08:57.:09:00.

only 137 people have been convicted nationwide.

:09:01.:09:05.

Now politicians and animal welfare groups want the current maximum six

:09:06.:09:08.

months sentence extended up to five years.

:09:09.:09:13.

Mike Butcher works as an investigations officer

:09:14.:09:15.

He's been trying to catch those using dogs to fight

:09:16.:09:21.

Even for any form of cruelty, six months nowadays is just outdated.

:09:22.:09:27.

You get five years abroad in Europe, longer than that in America,

:09:28.:09:31.

and we are in this country, we prosecute more dog fights

:09:32.:09:34.

than anybody else probably, we probably catch more dog

:09:35.:09:37.

Yet we're the lowest sentencing, so it's a bit weird, really.

:09:38.:09:42.

Hello. Hello.

:09:43.:09:43.

Both animal welfare groups are also calling for a register

:09:44.:09:47.

of banned owners and a review of the Dangerous Dogs Act.

:09:48.:09:50.

But the Government says it already has the right laws in place

:09:51.:09:53.

to tackle those using dogs for illegal purposes.

:09:54.:10:01.

The Isle of Wight Council could elect a new leader this evening,

:10:02.:10:04.

after surprise resignations earlier this week.

:10:05.:10:06.

The Leader Jonathan Bacon and Deputy Leader Steve Stubbings

:10:07.:10:10.

both stepped down on Monday, in what they said was a coordinated

:10:11.:10:12.

effort to highlight the island's struggle with austerity.

:10:13.:10:16.

The Council will meet at County Hall in Newport tonight.

:10:17.:10:20.

Workers at the Atomic Weapons Establishment sites

:10:21.:10:21.

in Aldermaston and Burghfield have been on strike today.

:10:22.:10:25.

It's the first of two 48-hour strikes.

:10:26.:10:27.

The action is over the long-running pensions row.

:10:28.:10:30.

AWE has previously said it's committed to putting-in-place

:10:31.:10:33.

arrangements, which ensure the long-term affordability

:10:34.:10:35.

Later, we'll be joining Kris Temple in a pub for the latest on Gosport

:10:36.:10:45.

sailor Alex Thompson, and here's Alexis.

:10:46.:10:48.

I've been finding out why this beach in Southampton

:10:49.:10:51.

'Give us more money or police services could suffer.'

:10:52.:11:04.

That's the message from those in charge

:11:05.:11:05.

today as they lobby the government for extra money.

:11:06.:11:11.

The force needs to save ?23 million by 2021.

:11:12.:11:15.

For which they've identified ?10 million worth of savings.

:11:16.:11:19.

But that still leaves them needing to plug a gap of ?13 million.

:11:20.:11:23.

The Chief Constable and the Police and Crime Commissioner claim they've

:11:24.:11:26.

already made all the savings they can and they're

:11:27.:11:29.

a victim of the national police funding formula.

:11:30.:11:32.

Our home affairs correspondent, Emma Vardy, reports.

:11:33.:11:41.

The thin blue line is being stretched ever more thinly. In

:11:42.:11:47.

Hampshire, the force has lost hundreds of art is supposed in

:11:48.:11:51.

recent years and it seemed a specialist teams cut back and more

:11:52.:11:54.

than 30 police stations are said to have been closed or it is set to go.

:11:55.:11:59.

Today, the Chief Constable appealed directly to the Government for more

:12:00.:12:03.

money. I am concerned because I wasn't concerned I would have penned

:12:04.:12:09.

a letter to the Minister. It is a very serious issue. The formula

:12:10.:12:17.

isn't fair. What we do know is it's a great police force and we have

:12:18.:12:19.

already made significant changes. We are a really efficient constabulary.

:12:20.:12:22.

Today is about securing our financial future in the longer term.

:12:23.:12:27.

Hampshire says it is around 25% underfunded compared with other

:12:28.:12:31.

forces, getting less money for policing. But the Government is

:12:32.:12:35.

changing the way it calculates how much each force should get. That's

:12:36.:12:39.

why Hampshire is making its case now. In a number of places around

:12:40.:12:44.

Hampshire, police have moved out of the traditional police stations and

:12:45.:12:49.

into shared buildings with the council and Fire Service, like here

:12:50.:12:53.

in Southampton Civic Centre. That is cheaper. Before it says it got out

:12:54.:12:57.

all the savings that can in they need another option. The current

:12:58.:13:02.

national funding formula which is two thirds of my money is not fit

:13:03.:13:06.

for purpose. There is a process at the moment are updated and I'm

:13:07.:13:08.

giving the evidence to the Minister to nature we get the funding

:13:09.:13:13.

nationally and they are funding locally. Police are being forced to

:13:14.:13:17.

get ever smarter to make their limited resources go further, like

:13:18.:13:21.

here at the frantic innovations centre set up at Portsmouth

:13:22.:13:24.

University where Hampshire now uses its students and volunteers

:13:25.:13:28.

alongside experienced officers to help fight cyber crime. The Home

:13:29.:13:32.

Office said today it believes there is no question the police still have

:13:33.:13:37.

the resources to do their important work, but will be considering

:13:38.:13:40.

Hampshire's case and that of other forces in the coming months.

:13:41.:13:41.

Emma, if funding isn't increased for Hampshire,

:13:42.:13:44.

It's been made very clear today that Hampshire Police do believe there

:13:45.:13:53.

are services could be under threat. What police do, they assess risk and

:13:54.:13:57.

then the deal with crimes as they happen. With resources being

:13:58.:14:00.

stretched, the bark of that would have to be set that much higher. --

:14:01.:14:04.

bar. That could mean the police would not be able to attend as many

:14:05.:14:08.

crime scenes as they once did I would have to get even less time to

:14:09.:14:13.

the less serious offences. To some degree, that is already happening.

:14:14.:14:16.

For example, some crimes are now dealt with over the phone where once

:14:17.:14:20.

upon a time he might have had a police officer, to see you in

:14:21.:14:24.

person. That's the kind of stuff for the public will not have the

:14:25.:14:32.

difference. Is the Government decides to allocate funding to

:14:33.:14:34.

different police forces is being reviewed now for the first time in

:14:35.:14:37.

over ten years. The chance to influence this doesn't come along to

:14:38.:14:42.

police forces very often. That's why we've seen Hampshire appealed

:14:43.:14:45.

directly to the police minister, Brandon Lewis, very publicly today.

:14:46.:14:49.

What we know is the Government will decide to make a decision on this

:14:50.:14:54.

next month, whether they agree with Hampshire's case, Hampshire has told

:14:55.:14:58.

us they think the Government is listening and that it does see this

:14:59.:15:02.

kind of unfair deal and it believes it's getting. -- that it believes it

:15:03.:15:04.

getting. Three year old Marla Trigwell

:15:05.:15:06.

was born without a hand. It's never been an issue for her,

:15:07.:15:08.

but now things could That's because she's just started

:15:09.:15:11.

using a prosthetic hand. This was one made on a 3D printer

:15:12.:15:14.

for just a few pounds. James Ingham has been

:15:15.:15:18.

to meet her family. This was the moment Marla opened her

:15:19.:15:21.

very special Christmas present. Her smile says it all -

:15:22.:15:25.

this prosthetic hand It's a boost to her confidence and

:15:26.:15:27.

it's a psychological boost for her. So, when she meets people,

:15:28.:15:38.

instead of that, "Oh, Marla's hand was made

:15:39.:15:40.

at a community workshop in Newbury Members of this club who love

:15:41.:15:48.

working on technical projects offered to help,

:15:49.:15:53.

turning a design that's freely To do it was actually not

:15:54.:15:57.

very difficult at all. You've got the fingers, the palm,

:15:58.:16:03.

the lower arm, the upper arm, the connecting pieces,

:16:04.:16:08.

put them together and you can get I'm quite proud that this has turned

:16:09.:16:11.

out better than I'd expected and it's really changing the lives

:16:12.:16:19.

of young Marla and her family. Materials for this

:16:20.:16:24.

hand cost only ?30. More traditional

:16:25.:16:28.

prosthetics are thousands. And Marla wouldn't be

:16:29.:16:30.

able to get one of them The NHS can't provide a functional

:16:31.:16:33.

prosthetic until they're much older, Whereas with the 3D printing,

:16:34.:16:40.

they're available now. She's three and a half

:16:41.:16:46.

and she's already using one. Marla is very able with just her one

:16:47.:16:51.

hand and she and her parents may decide never to wear a more

:16:52.:16:54.

advanced prosthetic. But by using this lightweight

:16:55.:16:58.

plastic hand, she will be better Marla's mum Joanne writes

:16:59.:17:01.

a blog, with another mum, about their experience bringing up

:17:02.:17:12.

daughters with Marla's condition. You can read that at

Alex Thompson has admitted that Vendee Globe glory is now

The pretty confident here at the Sea horse. Alex was very much in

:20:01.:20:05.

positive spirit is hoping that he did take over the leader. We will

:20:06.:20:09.

have the latest situation at our late bulletin.

:20:10.:20:18.

Southampton's hectic fixture schedule continues tonight,

:20:19.:20:20.

as they bid progress in the FA Cup at the second attempt.

:20:21.:20:23.

Claude Puel's side host Norwich in a third round replay,

:20:24.:20:25.

after being pegged back in the last minute in the original

:20:26.:20:28.

Saints have lost four league games in a row,

:20:29.:20:31.

but have a league cup semi-final next week too.

:20:32.:20:33.

The winners tonight host Arsenal in round four.

:20:34.:20:35.

Reading have completed the signing of Liverpool defender Tiago Ilori

:20:36.:20:38.

The 23-year-old Portugese centre-half has moved

:20:39.:20:41.

to the Madejski Stadium for an undisclosed fee.

:20:42.:20:45.

The owner of Dorset-trained horse Cue Card has confirmed that he'll

:20:46.:20:48.

run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March, rather than

:20:49.:20:50.

With his stablemate Thistlecrack the odds-on favourite

:20:51.:20:59.

for the blue riband race, the Colin Tizzard yard had mooted

:21:00.:21:02.

the possibility of Cue Card diverting to another race.

:21:03.:21:04.

But owner Jean Bishop has said today that Cue Card

:21:05.:21:07.

Here at the Sea horse, Alex is going to try and bring back the action. He

:21:08.:21:20.

is going to try and call back in about an hour's time together is the

:21:21.:21:23.

latest update but he is really tired. He's had a problem with an

:21:24.:21:29.

anemometer and he is suffering from a lack of sleep. Fingers crossed,

:21:30.:21:34.

Alex, you can do it. Everyone here at the pub is behind you. He has

:21:35.:21:38.

certainly got the support, the support of so many people. We will

:21:39.:21:43.

have all the news for you tomorrow and tonight on the late bulletin.

:21:44.:21:44.

He's 75 years old and an ex pharmacology lecturer.

:21:45.:21:47.

Yet, Richard Evans from Southampton, has chosen to spend his retirement

:21:48.:21:49.

doing something completely different.

:21:50.:21:51.

He's made it his weekly duty to regularly clean litter

:21:52.:21:53.

from the city's Weston Shore beach - no matter what the weather.

:21:54.:21:57.

This morning, I joined him on his cleaning round!

:21:58.:22:07.

When I came to Southampton in 2001 and I walked down

:22:08.:22:12.

on our Western Shore, I thought this is a lovely beach,

:22:13.:22:15.

So I started picking it up and gradually it's taken on my life.

:22:16.:22:27.

# I can see clearly now the rain is gone.#

:22:28.:22:32.

Come rain or shine, retired pharmacologist Richard Evans

:22:33.:22:34.

is found litter picking along the shingle of

:22:35.:22:37.

A lot of it comes down if there's nice weather,

:22:38.:22:42.

you get a lot of people down and people leave

:22:43.:22:44.

Even though they've carried their food there,

:22:45.:22:53.

they don't think to carry the wrappings away.

:22:54.:22:55.

16 years of picking up litter is certainly not

:22:56.:22:57.

His wife thinks he's barmy, but Richard's unpaid work

:22:58.:23:01.

There's no doubt that Richard's an absolute star player

:23:02.:23:06.

of ours and few have done more to keep Western Shore as clean

:23:07.:23:09.

and green working partnership with the council as he has.

:23:10.:23:12.

And it's a pleasure and a privilege to go litter picking alongside him.

:23:13.:23:17.

The amount that he collects is phenomanal.

:23:18.:23:21.

The famous 2014 Valentines Day storm, that brought incredible

:23:22.:23:24.

amounts of lots of mud on this beach.

:23:25.:23:29.

I think it's my way of trying to create heaven on Earth.

:23:30.:23:44.

# It's going to be a bright, bright sunshine day.#

:23:45.:23:53.

He is certainly a local hero. If we all did a little bit of that, we

:23:54.:24:02.

would have a clean world. Lots of litter on our beaches but he is

:24:03.:24:04.

helping clear it. Onto the weather. Very cold over the next few days. We

:24:05.:24:17.

saw temperatures plunge last night going to around minus six Celsius.

:24:18.:24:21.

This was the scene first thing. The glow of the sunshine over the water

:24:22.:24:26.

in the Basingstoke with the morning frost. Temperatures dropped down to

:24:27.:24:30.

around minus six Celsius tonight but tonight not as low. We are expecting

:24:31.:24:34.

widespread frost with freezing fog patches. Temperatures tonight in the

:24:35.:24:40.

countryside could drop as low as minus five. These are temperatures

:24:41.:24:46.

in our towns and cities. Currently minus three Celsius. We will see

:24:47.:24:52.

those temperatures tumble away. The farther north and west you are,

:24:53.:24:55.

temperatures will be above freezing, it still the chance of frost through

:24:56.:24:59.

parts of Oxfordshire. A lovely bright start of the day tomorrow

:25:00.:25:03.

with frosty conditions in the morning, sunny spells in the

:25:04.:25:07.

afternoon and cloud feeding in northern and eastern areas with

:25:08.:25:10.

temperatures reaching a high of five or seven Celsius and the winds will

:25:11.:25:14.

be light. In the evening, the cloud will thicken and it won't be as cold

:25:15.:25:20.

as last night. Lows of around two or three Celsius, hovering above

:25:21.:25:24.

freezing. Some clear spells and the chance of frost on Friday morning.

:25:25.:25:28.

For most of us on Friday we will see a sunny spells but there is the

:25:29.:25:31.

chance we could have the odd patch of rain. Not amounting to too much,

:25:32.:25:37.

high-pressure remaining in charge of our weather. The best of the

:25:38.:25:39.

sunshine will be very southern coastal counties. As we look ahead

:25:40.:25:48.

to the rest of the week, tomorrow is a lovely sunny day, a chilly start,

:25:49.:25:52.

more cloud the further north you are and we will see cloud started

:25:53.:25:55.

filling from the east during the course of the day, arriving from the

:25:56.:26:00.

north sea. Friday, some sunny spells and over the weekend there will be

:26:01.:26:04.

varying amounts of cloud that we are hopeful that cloud will start to sin

:26:05.:26:08.

and break with the breeze and we will see some sunny spells.

:26:09.:26:13.

There'll be a news summary at 8pm and we'll be back at 10.30.

:26:14.:26:17.

Hello. I hope you're well. I really do.

:26:18.:26:57.

Because if you're not, then chances are the NHS won't be able to

:26:58.:27:01.

look after you as well as it should. And that's wrong.

:27:02.:27:04.

Because the Labour Party created the NHS 70 years ago on
