That's all from the BBC News at Six - so it's goodbye from me -

:00:00.:00:08.

Hello, welcome to South Today, I'm Sally Taylor.

:00:09.:00:10.

She could have been saved - ambulance staff are criticised

:00:11.:00:13.

after a five-year-old girl collapsed and died outside her school.

:00:14.:00:17.

We can't pay it, say residents on a Hampshire housing estate,

:00:18.:00:20.

who face repair bills of more than ?20,000.

:00:21.:00:23.

It's actually work they should have been doing all these years and now

:00:24.:00:27.

they're causing us extreme distress by asking for huge amounts of money

:00:28.:00:29.

HORN TOOTS Cheer the Saints on!

:00:30.:00:37.

Saints fans both here and abroad get behind their team

:00:38.:00:41.

I'll be in Singapore, but still supporting the boys.

:00:42.:00:46.

Pocket size and perfect - fond memories of childhood reading

:00:47.:00:57.

A five-year-old girl from Berkshire died needlessly,

:00:58.:01:12.

because ambulance staff sent to help her failed to use

:01:13.:01:14.

a simple defibrillator to restore her heartbeat.

:01:15.:01:20.

Lilly May Page-Bowden died from natural causes, but today,

:01:21.:01:23.

the coroner recorded that her death was contributed to by neglect.

:01:24.:01:28.

Her family say they've finally been given answers

:01:29.:01:30.

Allen Sinclair was at the hearing, and joins us from outside

:01:31.:01:35.

It was here where Lilly May collapsed, as she ran out of school

:01:36.:01:46.

as normal at the end of the day to meet her mum and nan,

:01:47.:01:50.

What nobody knew then was that she had a genetic

:01:51.:01:55.

Two of the mums here that afternoon were trained nurses.

:01:56.:01:58.

They carried out chest compressions while they waited for an ambulance.

:01:59.:02:05.

But that's when mistakes started happening.

:02:06.:02:07.

The first paramedic wasted precious seconds carrying

:02:08.:02:09.

And then, once inside, took some minutes more

:02:10.:02:16.

before connecting her to a defibrillator.

:02:17.:02:17.

Crucially, the paramedic then misinterpreted the information

:02:18.:02:19.

the machine gave her, and chose not to use it

:02:20.:02:21.

Other medical staff arrived afterwards also failed to spot

:02:22.:02:28.

that she could and should have been given an electric shock.

:02:29.:02:33.

Had Lilly May been defibrillated within 15 minutes of her collapse,

:02:34.:02:36.

she would have survived and would still be with us.

:02:37.:02:39.

The coroner has found that Lilly May's death was contributed

:02:40.:02:41.

to by neglect on the part of South Central Ambulance Service,

:02:42.:02:48.

and we hope that everyone involved in this inquest will have learned

:02:49.:02:52.

from these events and that a child will not die

:02:53.:02:55.

again in the future for want of defibrillation.

:02:56.:03:04.

In response, South Central Ambulance Service have released a statement...

:03:05.:03:20.

It is also worth paying tribute to Lilly May's family, who have tried

:03:21.:03:28.

to get something positive out of this tragedy, as fundraising for

:03:29.:03:34.

this area and vying much-needed equipment for each school. Thank

:03:35.:03:39.

you. -- and purchasing much-needed equipment.

:03:40.:03:41.

A woman from Southsea in Hampshire has died after being attacked,

:03:42.:03:44.

alongside her husband, by a gang of robbers

:03:45.:03:46.

Sue Howarth and Robert Lynn were tied up and tortured

:03:47.:03:49.

at their farm at Dullstroom about 160 miles north

:03:50.:03:51.

east of Johannesburg. They'd moved to area some years ago.

:03:52.:03:54.

Our reporter Sophia Seth has been following the story

:03:55.:03:56.

and joins me now. What more do we know?

:03:57.:03:58.

Well, Sally, the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday.

:03:59.:04:01.

I've been speaking to the local paper, who've interviewed

:04:02.:04:03.

He's now back at home and is recovering from his injuries.

:04:04.:04:06.

He says that both he and his wife Sue were woken up

:04:07.:04:09.

The intruders then tied them up, covered their heads

:04:10.:04:13.

Robert was hit on the head with a gun, cut with knives

:04:14.:04:19.

He received severe burns to his stomach.

:04:20.:04:23.

It's unclear the extent of Sue's injuries,

:04:24.:04:26.

but there are reports locally that she received gunshot wounds.

:04:27.:04:29.

Sue, who was 64, died in hospital on Tuesday.

:04:30.:04:31.

Yesterday, a memorial service was held for her.

:04:32.:04:33.

It was attended by her friends and members of the local community.

:04:34.:04:38.

There were some flowers in memory of Sue.

:04:39.:04:44.

The community is in uproar, especially because Sue

:04:45.:04:47.

was a very well-loved woman and she was passionate about

:04:48.:04:50.

they've called her a woman with a heart of gold.

:04:51.:04:57.

She was forever getting money for the border collie rescue.

:04:58.:05:04.

Sally, the couple were attacked by intruders,

:05:05.:05:10.

of the night on their farm and I've been told

:05:11.:05:12.

From the point of New Year's Eve till this date, 21st of February,

:05:13.:05:17.

56 attacks and 18 murders that we are aware of.

:05:18.:05:19.

They've been brutally attacked, in the sense of being pulled out

:05:20.:05:22.

of bed, tied around the neck with a garbage bag, being stabbed,

:05:23.:05:26.

blowtorched, raped and then, the end result, pulled away

:05:27.:05:29.

Today, it's being reported that five people have been arrested.

:05:30.:05:35.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office also says it's in touch

:05:36.:05:37.

A postmortem is due to take place and, once that is completed,

:05:38.:05:41.

Sue's ashes will be flown to Southsea to be buried

:05:42.:05:43.

A big operation is gearing up to get tens of thousands

:05:44.:05:52.

of Southampton fans to Wembley for Sunday's League Cup Final.

:05:53.:05:56.

Special coaches and extra trains are being laid on, but Saints

:05:57.:05:59.

supporters are being warned about possible travel

:06:00.:06:01.

congestion with a rugby international also taking place.

:06:02.:06:02.

Excitement is building both at home and abroad.

:06:03.:06:06.

Briony Leyland is live outside St Mary's stadium.

:06:07.:06:10.

Sally, this will be one of the main pick up points for fans on Sunday.

:06:11.:06:16.

More than 100 coaches will carry them to Wembley.

:06:17.:06:22.

In all, 35,000 people expected to make the journey by road and rail.

:06:23.:06:27.

It's a really big event for the city, everyone getting excited.

:06:28.:06:32.

For those watching the game in Southampton, there will be free

:06:33.:06:35.

bus travel for anyone wearing team colours, as

:06:36.:06:37.

Your alley in call for Saints finds being cancelled from both near and

:06:38.:06:54.

far. That is not your size. This couple left Southampton for

:06:55.:06:58.

Australia in 1972 as newlyweds, following the progress of Saints

:06:59.:07:03.

from a distance and travelling back especially for Sunday's EFL Cup

:07:04.:07:11.

final. I want to go. It was on. I said, if they have the draw tonight,

:07:12.:07:16.

I will be looking for a ticket. It is taking an opportunity when it

:07:17.:07:21.

arises, you have to take it, life is too short to sit back and see should

:07:22.:07:26.

have, would have, could have. They will be making the journey with

:07:27.:07:34.

other fans by coach. There are over 100 colleges in a logistical

:07:35.:07:37.

operation that is also a Labour of love. It is great for the city, from

:07:38.:07:42.

the company and for the fans, we go to the matches, so it is all

:07:43.:07:48.

important for us. How thoughtful are you? I think we can do it. We went

:07:49.:07:55.

up to Liverpool, watched the game, nervous, that goal went in, I

:07:56.:08:00.

thought, our name is on the cup. Southampton may be the underdogs but

:08:01.:08:05.

that was also true in 1976, when beating the same opposition

:08:06.:08:08.

Manchester United in the same stadium in the FA Cup final.

:08:09.:08:12.

And that is when Ted Bates was the boss.

:08:13.:08:16.

The landlord and landlady of the Southampton pop have happy memories

:08:17.:08:19.

of those heady days. People take their seats on Sunday even though

:08:20.:08:24.

she finds it hard to look when the stakes are high. I just get so for

:08:25.:08:31.

them. I just get beyond excited. But on Sunday I shall have eyes front.

:08:32.:08:40.

Not long to wait now and to relieve the tension high about a little game

:08:41.:08:42.

of football? The nickname comes from its history

:08:43.:08:51.

as a charge football club. I think one Sunday many people will be

:08:52.:08:54.

offering up some prayers. Thanks very much.

:08:55.:08:58.

An NHS investigation is underway after a member of the House of Lords

:08:59.:09:01.

said his 21-year-old son killed himself days after being turned

:09:02.:09:04.

away from hospital, because of a lack of beds.

:09:05.:09:06.

Lord Nicholas Monson said his son, Rupert Green from Guildford,

:09:07.:09:08.

had suffered from psychosis as a result of an addiction to

:09:09.:09:11.

Lord Monson says he's declaring "war on skunk" in memory

:09:12.:09:18.

of his youngest son, who died last month.

:09:19.:09:23.

Nicholas Monson says 21-year-old Rupert had become paranoid,

:09:24.:09:26.

aggressive and depressed through his use of skunk.

:09:27.:09:30.

He'd been treated in hospital in Essex last year.

:09:31.:09:32.

But after Christmas and the New Year, Rupert

:09:33.:09:36.

deteriorated and his mother brought him here to a mental health

:09:37.:09:38.

The family say he was well treated here, but after that,

:09:39.:09:45.

The nurse there assess him and she says, "This young man

:09:46.:09:52.

is really in a very bad state, I'm going to call

:09:53.:09:55.

round the hospitals." Not one hospital would take him.

:09:56.:10:00.

If it was true that there were no hospital beds in that particular

:10:01.:10:07.

Surrey and Borders Trust, I think they call it, they should have

:10:08.:10:11.

placed elsewhere outside, but they didn't.

:10:12.:10:15.

The Surrey and Borders NHS Trust has apologised and said...

:10:16.:10:23.

Meanwhile, Rupert's father is calling for tougher laws

:10:24.:10:26.

and enforcement against stronger formers of cannabis such as skunk,

:10:27.:10:31.

but says he wants less-potent forms of cannabis decriminalised and sold

:10:32.:10:34.

It would be of a certain standard. You would know what was in it.

:10:35.:10:42.

You wouldn't be worried that you're actually being sold something

:10:43.:10:45.

What people think is cannabis isn't cannabis,

:10:46.:10:48.

I think the people who actually produce it should be

:10:49.:10:55.

An inquest is to be held into Rupert's death.

:10:56.:11:01.

Sean Killick, BBC South Today, Aldershot.

:11:02.:11:10.

Later, Tony Husband is enjoying a bit of silverware in the studio.

:11:11.:11:15.

He is getting very excited. I certainly am, Sally!

:11:16.:11:20.

But can Saints lift this trophy on Sunday?

:11:21.:11:23.

Claude Puel, Jose Mourinho, Cedric Soares and Peter Rodrigues,

:11:24.:11:26.

plus a couple of surprises help us preview one of the biggest games

:11:27.:11:29.

Three people have been charged after a police raid

:11:30.:11:37.

on an underground bunker in Wiltshire yesterday

:11:38.:11:40.

which uncovered the county's biggest-ever cannabis factory.

:11:41.:11:41.

Thousands of plants worth more than ?1 million were found

:11:42.:11:44.

inside the former MoD nuclear bunker at Chilmark near Salisbury.

:11:45.:11:48.

The three men, who all live in Bristol, face charges including

:11:49.:11:51.

and conspiracy to hold people in slavery.

:11:52.:11:54.

They'll appear in court in Swindon tomorrow.

:11:55.:11:59.

The threat of having to pay maintenance bills of at least

:12:00.:12:02.

?20,000 has been hanging over them for two years.

:12:03.:12:06.

Now, residents of a housing estate in Andover are being taken

:12:07.:12:09.

to a tribunal by their land owner - the Aster Group.

:12:10.:12:14.

Many of Asters' leaseholders are living on low incomes and fear

:12:15.:12:19.

if they're forced to pay, some may lose their

:12:20.:12:21.

Nikki Mitchell has been to meet them.

:12:22.:12:25.

I complained bitterly for years and eventually it was fixed but you can

:12:26.:12:31.

see if made no difference, it was not fixed properly, what is still

:12:32.:12:34.

running down the walls. Angela Bob, the leaseholder, please ?90 a month

:12:35.:12:41.

of maintenance but is now facing a one-off bill of 30,000 barrels from

:12:42.:12:47.

her landlord Michael to follow peers. -- ?30,000. They are causing

:12:48.:12:52.

extreme distress by asking for huge mix of money we do not have. There

:12:53.:12:58.

are 125 people in the same situation, people like Sean, who is

:12:59.:13:02.

worried he will lose his sight if he is forced to pay. Since these bills

:13:03.:13:07.

I have had trouble sleeping, my stomach doing somersaults, I feel

:13:08.:13:11.

absolutely dreadful. I don't understand how that bill can be

:13:12.:13:15.

lumped on people and expect them to pay it. Effectively, young families,

:13:16.:13:22.

retired people, people with special needs, and it's something that

:13:23.:13:26.

people have not got a lot of its money. And more estimated demands on

:13:27.:13:30.

bills keep arriving and all coming with an additional 15% admin charge

:13:31.:13:37.

I Aster. I am calling on Aster to be transparent on how that admin fee is

:13:38.:13:42.

made up, calling on them to identify the amount of money in that meant in

:13:43.:13:47.

this fund that residents pay into, so that could be subtracted from the

:13:48.:13:53.

overall bill. Piedt clique declined a request for an interview but said

:13:54.:13:58.

the work is absolutely necessary. -- the Aster Group declined. They have

:13:59.:14:02.

said they will work with residents who are in any financial problems to

:14:03.:14:08.

deal with issues. They have said you can play it over five years, but

:14:09.:14:14.

that is about ?480 per month. ?480 plus mortgage and service charge is

:14:15.:14:18.

her entire pension gone with no money left for food and bills.

:14:19.:14:24.

Want to sport, Tony husband is here, we are all wearing some red tonight,

:14:25.:14:31.

which I think if other important. We can hear you now.

:14:32.:14:36.

Good job it is all about what you see after some signed problems. Over

:14:37.:14:42.

130 years of Southampton history only winning one major trophy. At

:14:43.:14:47.

around half past six on Sunday, could Southampton be lifting the

:14:48.:14:50.

show see? Fingers crossed. I will not touch it and curse it. Hopefully

:14:51.:14:57.

Southampton will be the people to get their hands on this.

:14:58.:14:59.

The team news headlines tonight ahead of Southampton's first major

:15:00.:15:01.

Boss Claude Puel could keep faith, with 23-year-old defender

:15:02.:15:05.

Jack Stephens in defence, but he's admitted to being impressed

:15:06.:15:07.

by recent free transfer signing Martin Caceres,

:15:08.:15:09.

the former Barcelona and Juventus player.

:15:10.:15:11.

Saints have been training back at their Staplewood base

:15:12.:15:13.

for the past couple of days after their camp in Spain.

:15:14.:15:16.

Another new arrival, Manolo Gabbiadini, who scored

:15:17.:15:17.

at Sunderland in their last outing, seems certain to start.

:15:18.:15:23.

Both managers gave their final press conferences today.

:15:24.:15:25.

History is fascinating when you put these two clubs together.

:15:26.:15:28.

There's Southampton's surprise victory over United

:15:29.:15:32.

in the 1976 FA Cup Final, but then, the Reds delivered

:15:33.:15:36.

perhaps the cruellest blow to Saints in 2005,

:15:37.:15:38.

winning at St Mary's to relegate them from the Premier League

:15:39.:15:42.

and start five of the darkest years in Saints history at

:15:43.:15:44.

Here's messyrs Mourinho and Claude Puel.

:15:45.:15:47.

It will be fantastic, of course, to take good result,

:15:48.:15:49.

I can understand, of course, all the good atmosphere around

:15:50.:16:00.

the team and with the fans, but it's important for us

:16:01.:16:04.

to keep focus and with good concentration about our game.

:16:05.:16:08.

If they want more than us, they win. So we have to be...

:16:09.:16:12.

We have to be sure that they don't want more than us.

:16:13.:16:15.

That's...that's the point. They want a lot.

:16:16.:16:18.

Of course they want a lot. But, um, I don't think...

:16:19.:16:25.

I don't think they want more than us.

:16:26.:16:29.

Well, Claude Puel said this afternoon he's told some

:16:30.:16:36.

of the players who will start on Sunday, but not all of them.

:16:37.:16:39.

One player with major final experience is the Portuguese

:16:40.:16:43.

He played in his country's Euro 2016 victory over France last summer.

:16:44.:16:46.

And the chance to lift a trophy at Wembley Stadium inspires him

:16:47.:16:49.

I think every player knows about Wembley,

:16:50.:16:52.

about all the history that Wembley has and, to be playing in this kind

:16:53.:16:56.

of stage, for every player, it should be a reason for them

:16:57.:17:01.

to be proud, to feel proud, because, when I was young,

:17:02.:17:03.

I looked to the older players and I saw them playing in these kind

:17:04.:17:07.

I will have the pleasure to be there, um, and I feel this

:17:08.:17:14.

is a great opportunity also for me to be enjoying the moment and

:17:15.:17:20.

that you will always remember in your life.

:17:21.:17:32.

Southampton's only major cup final victory at Wembley -

:17:33.:17:36.

setting aside winning the Johnstone's Paint trophy in 2010

:17:37.:17:38.

- was the 1976 final, when they beat United 1-0,

:17:39.:17:41.

thanks to Bobby Stokes' late goal in front of almost

:17:42.:17:43.

100,000 at Wembley, including Her Majesty the Queen.

:17:44.:17:48.

No apology for showing that to you again.

:17:49.:17:51.

The man who lifted the cup, Peter Rodrigues, will be at Wembley

:17:52.:17:54.

on Sunday and he says he'll be delighted to see another

:17:55.:17:57.

Saints skipper join him for a place in history.

:17:58.:17:59.

They really play well, they knock it about.

:18:00.:18:02.

Haven't scored many goals, but they've got the...the new guy

:18:03.:18:05.

now, who looks pretty sharp, so that's going to be a little,

:18:06.:18:08.

I'm happy and I'm proud of it and you can't take it away,

:18:09.:18:15.

but it'd be nice to sort of get another skipper alongside me

:18:16.:18:18.

Now, Saints were given 32,000 tickets for the game on Sunday, so,

:18:19.:18:24.

rest assured, pubs and clubs will be packed as fans

:18:25.:18:27.

who can't be in the capital gather to watch the big game.

:18:28.:18:30.

It's a 4.30 kick off here, but of course, all around the world,

:18:31.:18:40.

expat fans and global supporters will be glued to TVs,

:18:41.:18:43.

Here's a few of them who've been in touch with us.

:18:44.:18:46.

This is Stella and Damian. We are in Portland, Oregon.

:18:47.:18:50.

"If you can't win it for us, win it for the puppies!"

:18:51.:18:57.

On behalf of all the Dubai Saints and all the

:18:58.:19:02.

fans in the Middle East, I just want to wish Saints

:19:03.:19:05.

all the best for Sunday. Ring home the trophy, lads.

:19:06.:19:09.

I'll be in Singapore, but still supporting the boys.

:19:10.:19:13.

Good luck, Saints, and bring home that trophy!

:19:14.:19:25.

As well as the support of fans around the globe,

:19:26.:19:28.

Saints have been given this message by one of Southampton's

:19:29.:19:30.

I'm really looking forward to this one, do you know what I mean?

:19:31.:19:34.

Everyone is sort of putting us as the underdog and kind

:19:35.:19:38.

of Manchester United kind of seem to be the one that going to take it,

:19:39.:19:42.

but I just feel like, if Southampton play like we know

:19:43.:19:44.

we can play, and we've seen sparks of brilliance throughout these,

:19:45.:19:47.

I think we're going to cause some trouble on Sunday, know what I mean?

:19:48.:19:50.

It's a long time coming, some silverware.

Excellent! Great to have the trophy. I have some more set dressing. You

have spared no expense. Absolutely, official Southampton cup final

scarf. Looking forward to that. And you have more goodies going there.

:21:21.:21:25.

Now, they were possibly the first book characters you ever read about.

:21:26.:21:27.

I'm talking about Peter and Jane, stars of the

:21:28.:21:29.

Reading University is home to tens of thousands of artworks

:21:30.:21:32.

from the publisher and it's staging new exhibition

:21:33.:21:34.

And it comes as the first new illustrations to be commissioned

:21:35.:21:38.

in 40 years for the titles were about to be put on show.

:21:39.:21:41.

Now a museum piece, Ladybird's pocket size ideal for little hands

:21:42.:21:45.

was no mere marketing ploy back in their heyday.

:21:46.:21:49.

It was this size, because of paper rationing.

:21:50.:21:51.

So what they had to do was figure out how to create an entire book

:21:52.:21:55.

in one piece of paper, and that sort of created

:21:56.:22:00.

the Ladybird book we know and love, and so this was introduced in 1940.

:22:01.:22:03.

It's also really interesting, because you find this

:22:04.:22:07.

in what is the story of printing, so this is the actual

:22:08.:22:10.

If you look very closely, you can see two technicians actually

:22:11.:22:15.

looking at what is a Ladybird book, with one side and then

:22:16.:22:18.

If you're of a certain age, of course, it's very likely

:22:19.:22:22.

that this is one of the first books you ever got to read.

:22:23.:22:25.

Of course, once you've mastered the basics, well,

:22:26.:22:30.

that opened the door to an entire world of Ladybird books.

:22:31.:22:32.

The collection here includes many favourites and thousands

:22:33.:22:34.

"Jimbo works hard all week and only has a few hours at the weekend

:22:35.:22:43.

He spends these hours watching sport."

:22:44.:22:45.

At last night's gallery launch, two lifelong fans, now behind

:22:46.:22:51.

a successful series of parodies using Ladybird's artwork.

:22:52.:22:59.

When you got a Ladybird book as a kid, you knew someone

:23:00.:23:01.

Ladybird isn't a cosy world, but it's quite a reassuring world.

:23:02.:23:06.

These, though, are left certain times, reflected

:23:07.:23:10.

in the first factual volume in nearly a generation.

:23:11.:23:13.

It was all kicked off by a phone call from Clarence House,

:23:14.:23:16.

where Prince Charles had requested to do a book on climate change,

:23:17.:23:20.

in a Ladybird format, because he wanted a simple book that

:23:21.:23:25.

people who didn't understand climate change could pick up,

:23:26.:23:27.

read and then know more about the subject.

:23:28.:23:33.

Artwork for the new book, inspired by Ladybird's past,

:23:34.:23:37.

will be the newest addition to the collection here.
