Martin McGuinness is stepping down from politics for

:00:00.:00:00.

Ablaze in the Solent - an Isle of Wight ferry catches fire

:00:00.:00:11.

A chap just a few feet from me said, um, "That's a bit weird -

:00:12.:00:17.

"the ferry seems to be on fire." I said, "No, you're joking?"

:00:18.:00:20.

It started quite small, but within seconds, it suddenly got

:00:21.:00:22.

The Good Samaritan boss trying to help the homeless after finding

:00:23.:00:27.

How can this be? Not in the 21st century.

:00:28.:00:34.

My stomach isn't strong enough to step over these people.

:00:35.:00:36.

Making up Jane - Basingstoke's pride as the town prepares to mark

:00:37.:00:39.

the 200th anniversary of the author's death.

:00:40.:00:44.

She was a headstrong woman of her time, but is relevant for us

:00:45.:00:47.

And the end of a dream - the winner crosses the line

:00:48.:00:55.

in the Vendee Globe race, but it isn't Alex Thomson.

:00:56.:01:10.

An Isle of Wight ferry carrying more than 50 passengers caught fire

:01:11.:01:13.

Nobody was injured and the fire was put out, but the Wightlink

:01:14.:01:22.

vessel sailing from Portsmouth was evacuated

:01:23.:01:23.

Allen Sinclair has been following the story.

:01:24.:01:26.

He's live in Portsmouth for us now. Allen, what happened here?

:01:27.:01:30.

Sally, it's here behind me, parked up and going nowhere for a while.

:01:31.:01:39.

We understand the fire broke out in the upper deck in what is thought to

:01:40.:01:44.

be the air conditioning unit, showing clouds of black smoke up

:01:45.:01:49.

into what was the clear blue sky, it was visible from many miles away,

:01:50.:01:54.

thousands saw it. Wightlink described it as a small fire, it

:01:55.:01:56.

certainly looked pretty dramatic. These images show the intensity

:01:57.:01:59.

of the flames and the urgency of staff trying to deal

:02:00.:02:02.

with the emergency aboard the ferry halfway across the Solent heading

:02:03.:02:05.

from Portsmouth toward Fishbourne. Witnesses on dry land could only

:02:06.:02:08.

imagine what was happening as black The fire was in an area not

:02:09.:02:11.

accessible to passengers, but as these images show,

:02:12.:02:19.

still worryingly close. I didn't see it actually

:02:20.:02:21.

start, but soon after, And then, within just a few seconds,

:02:22.:02:24.

there was 18 feet flames and huge black billowing smoke

:02:25.:02:33.

going straight up into the air. The Coastguard took a number

:02:34.:02:36.

of calls, but had already been alerted by the ferry crew itself

:02:37.:02:41.

and told that the fire had been Lifeboats were scrambled

:02:42.:02:44.

and the Isle of Wight Fire Service called to the ferry port

:02:45.:02:49.

as a precaution. Well, it was just really gathering

:02:50.:02:52.

the information initially and just ascertaining that the vessel

:02:53.:02:57.

was content with their situation. We monitored that situation really

:02:58.:02:59.

closely and we were prepared Potentially, it could have

:03:00.:03:02.

been worse, absolutely, but we prepare

:03:03.:03:06.

for this type of incident. We work closely with the ferry

:03:07.:03:09.

companies and this incident As the St Faith pulled

:03:10.:03:11.

into Fishbourne, Wightlink was already playing down

:03:12.:03:16.

the significance The incident broke out and was dealt

:03:17.:03:17.

with by the crew that are trained to deal with these scenarios

:03:18.:03:24.

and passengers were taken care of. They were taken care of in the

:03:25.:03:37.

lounge areas. The situation was taken care of very quickly and the

:03:38.:03:45.

vessel was disembarked of passengers and vehicles normally. St Faith is

:03:46.:03:49.

back in Portsmouth and the investigation underway but a real

:03:50.:03:52.

sense of relief because this could have been far more serious.

:03:53.:03:56.

One other thing worth noting, it was a quiet crossing at a quiet time of

:03:57.:04:06.

year. Just 52 passengers, 13 members of staff. Nobody injured, Wightlink

:04:07.:04:11.

apologise for any alarm caused to passengers but they were back on the

:04:12.:04:15.

normal timetable by lunchtime. Thank you very much.

:04:16.:04:20.

The Conservatives have taken control of the Isle of Wight Council,

:04:21.:04:23.

following the resignation of the Independent leader

:04:24.:04:25.

Jonathan Bacon and Steve Stubbings stepped down in protest

:04:26.:04:28.

at the impact of government cuts saying "politics and ego

:04:29.:04:30.

"were being put before the concerns of Island people".

:04:31.:04:33.

Last night, Tory councillor Dave Stewart was voted

:04:34.:04:35.

in as the new leader, ahead of another

:04:36.:04:37.

A family's being supported by specialist officers

:04:38.:04:41.

after an 11-year-old girl was approached by two men

:04:42.:04:43.

The incident happened near Caversham Primary School

:04:44.:04:47.

A letter sent to parents at the school today says the girl's

:04:48.:04:53.

movements after this are unclear. It's believed she was unhurt.

:04:54.:04:55.

Extra patrols are being carried out in the area.

:04:56.:05:03.

The boss of a company in Newbury is urging business leaders to do

:05:04.:05:06.

more for the homeless after he says he was ashamed to find one

:05:07.:05:10.

of the people working for him was sleeping rough.

:05:11.:05:12.

Adrian Smith, who runs a successful logistics firm,

:05:13.:05:14.

is meeting his local MP to get political backing for a scheme

:05:15.:05:17.

where companies take on homeless workers and offer guarantees

:05:18.:05:21.

to landlords who will house them. Joe Campbell takes up the story.

:05:22.:05:27.

For Joe, this is a trip back to what, for three

:05:28.:05:30.

This is where I used to live. It's a World War II pillbox.

:05:31.:05:37.

I was just having a wander one day, as you do, from this place.

:05:38.:05:43.

I was just having a wander one day, -- as you do, found this place.

:05:44.:05:47.

I think someone lived in here before.

:05:48.:05:50.

They obviously got found out and they tried to bury it.

:05:51.:05:53.

You do what you have to do to survive, I suppose.

:05:54.:05:57.

What makes this home of last resort all the more shocking is that,

:05:58.:06:01.

for much of the time Joe was here, he was holding down a job.

:06:02.:06:05.

It certainly came as a shock to his boss, but it was also

:06:06.:06:09.

a discovery the man who runs this multi-million pound business

:06:10.:06:11.

I always thought he was a little bit scruffy, but nothing, you know,

:06:12.:06:20.

he was working in the warehouse, picking and packing.

:06:21.:06:22.

Um, I just... It was shame.

:06:23.:06:25.

And then, upset, really, I guess was the underlying emotion.

:06:26.:06:29.

Um, how can this be? Not in the 21st century.

:06:30.:06:33.

Joe's tent is still pitched inside the bunker.

:06:34.:06:36.

But he is now in a hotel, paid for by his boss,

:06:37.:06:39.

while he sorts out the deposit for somewhere more permanent.

:06:40.:06:43.

He jokes that the pillbox here is just a short distance

:06:44.:06:46.

"I've never liked a long commute," he says, but make no mistake,

:06:47.:06:50.

that gallows humour is putting the bravest of faces

:06:51.:06:53.

on what was undoubtedly a squalid existence.

:06:54.:06:57.

Many of the 30 or so people getting breakfast from this

:06:58.:07:00.

charity in the town could tell similar stories.

:07:01.:07:04.

The man who helped Joe out says nobody should think they're immune

:07:05.:07:10.

and is urging other bosses to do their part.

:07:11.:07:12.

My stomach isn't strong enough to step over these

:07:13.:07:15.

people, and that's it. Um, I...

:07:16.:07:16.

I'm no Boy Scout. But I've...I've...I've...

:07:17.:07:21.

In my early years, when I was 16, 17, I spent a good few months

:07:22.:07:24.

sleeping on people's floors and sofas, because

:07:25.:07:26.

I fell out with my parents, because I knew everything

:07:27.:07:28.

and they knew nothing. We've all been there.

:07:29.:07:30.

He's neither a pariah, nor somebody to be pitied,

:07:31.:07:36.

but his boss would say just a person making their way in the world.

:07:37.:07:39.

Joe Campbell, BBC South Today, Newbury.

:07:40.:07:47.

Well, often, it seems that initiatives to help the homeless

:07:48.:07:49.

come from charities, and individuals like Adrian Smith,

:07:50.:07:51.

But in Basingstoke, the council has taken the initiative,

:07:52.:07:56.

working with volunteers and other agencies to try to reduce

:07:57.:07:58.

And it's just won government funding for specialist psychologists

:07:59.:08:05.

to work with homeless people to try to turn their lives around.

:08:06.:08:08.

Pete has been sleeping rough in Basingstoke for as long as he can

:08:09.:08:22.

remember. Why do you sleep rough? No problems. Things have gone wrong in

:08:23.:08:31.

my life. -- because I got problems. Tonight, he will use the emergency

:08:32.:08:35.

Night Light Shelter provided by volunteers from the area's churches.

:08:36.:08:39.

It is getting the rough sleepers in, offering them a bed, nice hot meal,

:08:40.:08:46.

just encouraging them. Crowdfunding helped raise ?14,000 to open the

:08:47.:08:51.

night shelter five days a week. For the volunteers it is obvious many

:08:52.:08:55.

rough sleepers have mental health problems. We can focus on the mental

:08:56.:08:59.

health, getting that sorted, then that in able is them and equips them

:09:00.:09:05.

to move on. The government has awarded Basingstoke ?250,000 for

:09:06.:09:10.

specialist psychologists to work with homeless people over three

:09:11.:09:14.

years. To get someone to the point where they can live independently

:09:15.:09:17.

support is needed and we know there are real issues around mental health

:09:18.:09:22.

support at the moment, so they need that dedicated support and help. If

:09:23.:09:27.

that was offered, with you take it? Yes, I probably would. I will not

:09:28.:09:33.

see I would, I would say properly. Yeah. Some rough sleepers and move

:09:34.:09:41.

on, with help. James slept rough, then got into an attack in which his

:09:42.:09:49.

leg was broken. It is worse you're there, you can get yourself sorted,

:09:50.:09:53.

get yourself on the ladder, then onto a flat or some sort of more

:09:54.:09:57.

permanent accommodation. So things are looking better? Yes, definitely.

:09:58.:10:04.

Figures so that the number of rough sleepers rose in Basingstoke from 20

:10:05.:10:11.

to 26, but the council, and volunteers are desperate to help,

:10:12.:10:14.

despite financial pressures they are facing.

:10:15.:10:18.

Over 150 drivers have been stopped for being distracted behind

:10:19.:10:22.

across Hampshire and the Thames Valley.

:10:23.:10:25.

Officers used the high vantage point of an unmarked lorry to film drivers

:10:26.:10:29.

on several of the region's major roads and motorways.

:10:30.:10:32.

Most were caught using mobile phones held below the steering wheel.

:10:33.:10:37.

But one man was seen eating a bowl of cereal

:10:38.:10:40.

And an HGV driver was spotted shaving.

:10:41.:10:46.

That moment's inattention, looking down to look

:10:47.:10:51.

at a phone for a text, playing with the stereo,

:10:52.:10:53.

brushing your teeth, you know, putting your make-up on,

:10:54.:11:00.

putting lipstick on, and bringing the mirror down,

:11:01.:11:04.

which we've seen people doing - all these sort of things are

:11:05.:11:07.

momentarily distracting you from the road ahead,

:11:08.:11:08.

and that's where something can happen and a collision occur.

:11:09.:11:11.

A strike by conductors on Southern Railway will

:11:12.:11:13.

The RMT claims it has been wrongly excluded from negotiations

:11:14.:11:16.

between the company and the drivers' union, Aslef.

:11:17.:11:18.

The drivers have suspended their industrial action

:11:19.:11:20.

and talks have continued for the last two days.

:11:21.:11:23.

But the RMT continues to protest about the transferring

:11:24.:11:25.

of responsibility for operating the doors.

:11:26.:11:27.

Southern says four out of five trains will run

:11:28.:11:31.

Stay with us, later in the programme...

:11:32.:11:41.

Saints knock out the Canaries with a last gasp goal.

:11:42.:11:55.

Councils across the South will be setting their budgets

:11:56.:11:58.

for the coming financial year in the next few weeks.

:11:59.:12:00.

And for many, there are tough choices ahead.

:12:01.:12:02.

In Surrey, there'll be a referendum on putting up council tax by 15%.

:12:03.:12:05.

If passed, it would take the average council tax bill to around ?1,500.

:12:06.:12:11.

The council says cuts to its annual grant from central government

:12:12.:12:14.

of ?170 million a year since 2010 has left it with no choice as costs

:12:15.:12:18.

of adult social care and providing enough school places are spiralling.

:12:19.:12:23.

Well, Surrey isn't the only authority with problems.

:12:24.:12:26.

County councillors in West Sussex have been trying to decide how

:12:27.:12:28.

to close a ?41 million hole in next year's budget.

:12:29.:12:31.

The plan is to raise council tax by nearly 4% and cut spending

:12:32.:12:34.

by almost ?17 million, though the council says

:12:35.:12:38.

many of the cuts are being offset by other measures.

:12:39.:12:40.

Sean Killick is outside County Hall in Chichester.

:12:41.:12:44.

Sean, this sounds like a very difficult balancing act?

:12:45.:12:53.

Good evening, familiar story, rising costs but a drop in income. There's

:12:54.:13:01.

been a big reduction in the money the council receives from central

:13:02.:13:04.

government but 5 million extra pounds is needed because more adults

:13:05.:13:08.

require social care, and a minimum wage rise 40 staff and nearly ?2

:13:09.:13:13.

million is needed for the new apprenticeship V. This is what the

:13:14.:13:15.

council proposes... A 3.95% rise in council tax -

:13:16.:13:22.

which means an extra ?47.70 a year ?16 million of savings,

:13:23.:13:25.

for example stop providing ending a youth travel discount card;

:13:26.:13:35.

and re-procuring a waste contract. But there will be extra spending

:13:36.:13:39.

in some areas, for example more than a million extra

:13:40.:13:43.

for Child Disability Services and ?300,000 extra

:13:44.:13:45.

on accommodation for unaccompanied The council says it carried out

:13:46.:13:47.

a survey asking how big a council Two thirds of the residents surveyed

:13:48.:13:51.

said they would accept a 3.75 increase, because they understood

:13:52.:13:55.

the challenges that are before us We're just 0.25 over that

:13:56.:13:58.

and we know costs are increasing, we know petrol prices are going up,

:13:59.:14:08.

we know food prices are going up, but also the demands on this council

:14:09.:14:11.

and the lack of central funding is also putting

:14:12.:14:15.

huge pressures on us too. Some opposition councillors warn

:14:16.:14:28.

that some of the social care reductions could cause problems in

:14:29.:14:33.

future years. And despite this tens of millions more savings needed, the

:14:34.:14:37.

budget proposal will be discussed at the full council meeting in the

:14:38.:14:41.

middle of next month. Sally. Thanks very much.

:14:42.:14:50.

A document's been accidentally posted online revealing

:14:51.:14:52.

Thames Valley Police is proposing redeveloping its traffic

:14:53.:14:54.

base into a replacement for Reading Police Station.

:14:55.:14:56.

The proposal for the Three Mile Cross site appeared

:14:57.:14:58.

The document was written by the Berkshire Property Partnership -

:14:59.:15:01.

a consortium that consists of the local NHS Trusts,

:15:02.:15:04.

Thames Valley Police, Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue,

:15:05.:15:06.

and all of the Royal Counties' councils.

:15:07.:15:10.

Crews from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service have taken part

:15:11.:15:13.

in training for how they'd respond to a terror attack

:15:14.:15:15.

Actors were used in the exercises at Gibraltar Barracks in Yately,

:15:16.:15:19.

The scenarios included a chlorine gas attack at a leisure centre

:15:20.:15:23.

and an unidentified white powder being spilt.

:15:24.:15:24.

The training looked at how crew would cope in the vital minutes

:15:25.:15:27.

of one of Britain's most celebrated authors.

:15:28.:15:38.

Jane Austen was a Hampshire girl, born and bred.

:15:39.:15:40.

And her anniversary will be marked with a number

:15:41.:15:43.

of events at Chawton, near Alton,

:15:44.:15:44.

where she lived for many years, and in Winchester, where she died.

:15:45.:15:48.

And as Ben Moore can tell us now, she's also getting a permanent

:15:49.:15:51.

just a few miles from where she was born.

:15:52.:15:59.

We can join him tonight at Farleigh House and he can tell us more.

:16:00.:16:05.

Thanks very much, Sally, I am in the library, the octagonal room, and

:16:06.:16:12.

quite a crowd has gathered, here to see this, the model of what we

:16:13.:16:19.

believe will be the first public statue of Jane Austen in the world.

:16:20.:16:24.

As you mentioned there, 20 of places lay claim to this author, -- plenty

:16:25.:16:31.

of places. But it is Basingstoke where she was born.

:16:32.:16:36.

"How quick come the reasons for approving what we like?"

:16:37.:16:41.

wrote Jane Austen in her novel Persuasion and it's hoped the town

:16:42.:16:47.

of Basingstoke will echo that sentiment

:16:48.:16:49.

over a bronze of the world renounced Hampshire author.

:16:50.:16:53.

The vision I have with the piece is that she is walking in the square

:16:54.:16:56.

and it's as though someone's just said, "Good morning, Jane,"

:16:57.:16:59.

and she says, "Morning," back. I mean, she was a real person.

:17:00.:17:02.

She was a headstrong woman of her time, and living in her time,

:17:03.:17:05.

but is relevant for us today walking past her,

:17:06.:17:07.

The statue's certainly taken shape from Adam's early sketches,

:17:08.:17:13.

but finding a real likeness of Jane Austen has historically been

:17:14.:17:15.

a problem, as only two portraits were ever done.

:17:16.:17:20.

I have to go back to study from life, so I have

:17:21.:17:23.

to read between the lines of what was written

:17:24.:17:25.

about her and I have to pull together a real face.

:17:26.:17:28.

Jane Austen was born just a few miles outside

:17:29.:17:30.

The house is long gone, but 200 years later,

:17:31.:17:34.

She even attended social gatherings at the old Assembly Halls

:17:35.:17:46.

that stood here, in Market Square, where her statue will go.

:17:47.:17:48.

It was all such a great influence on her that, while she was here,

:17:49.:17:52.

she wrote the first draft to Pride and Prejudice.

:17:53.:17:59.

To be honest, many other places have been far better at trying

:18:00.:18:02.

to claim Jane Austen, so, on the 200th anniversary

:18:03.:18:05.

of her death, we want to have here a permanent memorial to the fact

:18:06.:18:08.

that she is our most famous of residents.

:18:09.:18:15.

The final, brother in delicate work has started.

:18:16.:18:22.

-- The final rather in delicate work on the main statue has now begun.

:18:23.:18:26.

It'll be cast in April, leaving this town with a sense

:18:27.:18:28.

And the statue will be unveiled in July. Basingstoke says it is

:18:29.:18:35.

re-claiming its favourite daughter and armour as Jane Austen herself

:18:36.:18:41.

wrote in Emma, there is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.

:18:42.:18:45.

Back to you, Sally. Thanks very much.

:18:46.:18:55.

He was one of country's greatest pilots.

:18:56.:18:58.

Captain Eric "Winkle" Brown holds the world record for the most

:18:59.:19:01.

aircraft carrier take-offs, as well being the first pilot ever

:19:02.:19:03.

to take off and land a jet aircraft on a sea carrier.

:19:04.:19:06.

The West Sussex flyer died last year aged 97.

:19:07.:19:08.

And now his logbooks and medals have been

:19:09.:19:10.

saved for posterity - thanks, in part, to the efforts

:19:11.:19:13.

He launched a letter writing campaign after striking up

:19:14.:19:16.

I thought he would never write back, but luckily, he did, so I thought I

:19:17.:19:21.

back and then I'd write to him and he would write back. What kind of

stuff was he saying in his letters? He said, I see you want to be a test

here, the battle on the water at the Von de globe is over, Alex Thompson

:19:42.:19:43.

putting up such a fight. He did indeed. And the man who won

:19:44.:19:56.

is giving a live conference. Armel Le Cleach delivering the victory, he

:19:57.:20:01.

was the favourite, speaking to the media now, on dry land. But if we

look at the pictures is often finishing this afternoon, this

:20:07.:20:09.

happened after he completed the voyage into western France. What

:20:10.:20:13.

pictures there, approaching the finish line, this is 3.35 UK time.

:20:14.:20:21.

And after 74 days, 35 minutes and 46 seconds at sea, he said he faced a

:20:22.:20:26.

formidable rival in Alex Thompson. Very happy for him,

:20:27.:20:30.

because he did a very good race. It was very, very

:20:31.:20:33.

difficult with him. I'm very happy to win

:20:34.:20:40.

and it's the best... Let's talk live to Natalie Pirks

:20:41.:20:46.

who is in Les Sables now, Natalie a remarkable welcome

:20:47.:20:58.

for the French winner? We've had fireworks, music, tears.

:20:59.:21:08.

It is a very, very popular win here, because of course, he is a Frenchman

:21:09.:21:13.

and the one other than our Frenchman has ever won this race in its 27

:21:14.:21:20.

year history. 100,000 people, the organisers estimated, around here

:21:21.:21:23.

waiting for him to come down the canal but people piled onto vessels

:21:24.:21:28.

to see him cross the finish line. Very popular winner but didn't Alex

:21:29.:21:33.

Thompson do well? He gave him a run for his money. And as for Alex, when

:21:34.:21:39.

do we expect to see him finish? We're expecting him at around 6am UK

:21:40.:21:46.

time. At times, that gap was a lot closer. At one point yesterday it

:21:47.:21:51.

was just 34 nautical miles separating the two. Into context,

:21:52.:21:55.

Alex is only the second British sailor to come second in this race

:21:56.:22:01.

after Dame Ellen MacArthur of course in 2001. Two people have died trying

:22:02.:22:06.

to do this race it is 27 years. It is both physically and mentally

:22:07.:22:11.

draining. And his wife Kate told me earlier she's had to put that to the

:22:12.:22:16.

back of her mind, really, to try to not think about how dangerous this

:22:17.:22:19.

is in the three month she hasn't had them around, and he has missed his

:22:20.:22:25.

son Oscar, his sixth birthday, missing Christmas as well, and she

:22:26.:22:28.

is very, very looking forward to getting him back here on dry land,

:22:29.:22:33.

giving him a hug, and he is looking forward to having a hamburger and

:22:34.:22:37.

much deserved cold beer. I bet he is. Fantastic. Thank you for joining

with the big story. Southampton are through to

:22:48.:22:48.

the fourth round of the FA Cup after what many described as a dire

:22:49.:22:51.

replay against Norwich last night. It sets up an attractive home tie

:22:52.:22:54.

with Arsenal in what's become one of the busiest seasons

:22:55.:22:57.

in the club's history. This wasn't an FA Cup tie

:22:58.:22:59.

to capture the imagination, particularly with Southampton

:23:00.:23:01.

so close to the EFL Cup Final. Less than 14,000 were inside

:23:02.:23:06.

St Mary's as Saints boss, Claude Puel,

:23:07.:23:09.

rotated his squad again. Southampton had six Academy

graduates in the starting line-up and they enjoyed the bulk

:23:11.:23:12.

of progression, Championship opposition, Norwich,

:23:13.:23:14.

whose season is sinking fast, failed to land a blow

:23:15.:23:18.

on the Saints goal. They didn't manage a shot

on target all evening. On a freezing night,

:23:21.:23:33.

no-one fancied extra time, but with another half hour looming,

:23:34.:23:35.

Shane Long bundled home the winner. An ugly goal to settle an ugly game,

:23:36.:23:38.

but something to celebrate on his 100th appearance

:23:39.:23:41.

for the club. Just headed it down,

:23:42.:23:43.

the keeper made a good save, and I think I was in a headlock

:23:44.:23:45.

as I was trying to kick the ball in and squeeze inside the post,

:23:46.:23:49.

but we're still in the three competitions, so, you know,

:23:50.:23:52.

we're in with a shout. Saints face Leicester on Sunday,

:23:53.:23:54.

then go to Liverpool It's a season which has been
