I'm Allen Sinclair. On tonight's and on BBC One we now join the BBC's

:00:00.:00:07.

I'm Allen Sinclair. On tonight's South Today we reflect on the two

:00:08.:00:10.

year battle over term time holidays and what it has cost the family from

:00:11.:00:17.

here who fought and lost the case. It was 60 quid. If I had my time

:00:18.:00:20.

again I would probably pay because it has been hugely stressful. A

:00:21.:00:26.

father's anguish as a man that broke into his house and climbed into his

:00:27.:00:30.

daughter's bed is found not guilty of sexual assault. Old enemies

:00:31.:00:36.

united to remember the fearsome firepower of the iconic Tiger tank

:00:37.:00:41.

at a new exhibition. It is a shame we could not have this relationship

:00:42.:00:45.

before. Now we are all comrades. Everything else is forgotten.

:00:46.:00:59.

"You are not the final arbiter of what's right for your child!"

:01:00.:01:02.

Those the words of a furious Isle of Wight father, Jon Platt,

:01:03.:01:05.

as he today lost a legal challenge against a fine for taking

:01:06.:01:09.

his daughter on holiday during school term time.

:01:10.:01:11.

The Supreme Court ruled against Mr Platt, even though he'd

:01:12.:01:15.

won earlier legal battles against what started out

:01:16.:01:17.

as a ?60 fine, imposed by the council.

:01:18.:01:24.

It means after two years the case will now go back before

:01:25.:01:27.

Whatever happens there, today's outcome will have

:01:28.:01:29.

repercussions across the country - because it's an issue that affects

:01:30.:01:32.

In 2015, truancy prosecutions were up by more than 20%

:01:33.:01:36.

with action taken against nearly 20,000 families.

:01:37.:01:41.

That led to more than 11,000 fines being issued,

:01:42.:01:46.

and in eight cases parents were given jail sentences.

:01:47.:01:52.

The Isle of Wight has long been on the map as a holiday destination but

:01:53.:01:58.

in the last two years it is the foreign holiday plans of one

:01:59.:02:01.

Highland family which have hit the headlines. In 2015 Jon Platt refused

:02:02.:02:07.

to pay a fine for taking his daughter to Florida during term

:02:08.:02:11.

time, winning his case at the magistrates and High Court, arguing

:02:12.:02:15.

despite the holiday her overall attendance was regular, as required

:02:16.:02:20.

by the law. I looked at the legislation and it said children

:02:21.:02:23.

must attend frequently and I made the decision that my child had done.

:02:24.:02:29.

And the one decision I made was not to pay that penalty notice and I was

:02:30.:02:33.

taken to court and everything that happened since is out of my control.

:02:34.:02:38.

He normally handles PPI claims but since the publicity over the case

:02:39.:02:41.

they have had hundreds of cases from parents looking for support. Money

:02:42.:02:46.

has successfully been used to challenge fines for term time

:02:47.:02:51.

holidays around the country. I was shocked at how many people it has

:02:52.:02:55.

affected. And these situations people are in where they are being

:02:56.:03:01.

refused time off for their children and the reasons to me seem perfectly

:03:02.:03:08.

reasonable. Now the process of fines has been stopped in its tracks. The

:03:09.:03:11.

Supreme Court ruled today regular attendance means in accordance with

:03:12.:03:17.

school rules, meaning a good overall attendance is not a defence for

:03:18.:03:21.

unauthorised absence. Jon Platt said it was a shocking decision. It is no

:03:22.:03:26.

longer, if it ever was, about turn time holiday. It is the state taking

:03:27.:03:31.

the right of parents away when it comes to making decisions about

:03:32.:03:35.

their children. You cannot take your child away from school without

:03:36.:03:39.

permission. You can't say it is all right if you attend 95% of the year,

:03:40.:03:47.

90%, 85%. Take a charred away from school for a day and you risk

:03:48.:03:50.

prosecution and being fined. -- child. The council said it provided

:03:51.:03:56.

clarity for what constitutes regular attendance in school. It was echoed

:03:57.:04:01.

by the Department for education saying that it damages life chances.

:04:02.:04:05.

But on the island there is much support for the local father who

:04:06.:04:12.

took on the authorities. The prices tourist companies charge you for

:04:13.:04:16.

taking kids on school holidays is ridiculous. As long as you're not

:04:17.:04:21.

doing it every week, take them, take them for a week. There should be a

:04:22.:04:26.

certain amount of time that parents are allowed to take their kids out

:04:27.:04:31.

in term. Jon Platt must go back to the magistrates court. He said he

:04:32.:04:34.

will plead not guilty. If convicted he faces a ?1000 fine and a criminal

:04:35.:04:38.

record. Earlier this afternoon,

:04:39.:04:40.

we caught up with Jon Platt, from our central London studios,

:04:41.:04:42.

along with Neil Richards, who's a Hampshire teacher, a father,

:04:43.:04:46.

and a regional representative I asked Jon Platt if the case had

:04:47.:04:59.

been a burden upon him and his family.

:05:00.:05:01.

It's nearly two years and it has been exhausting.

:05:02.:05:03.

How have you dealt with that pressure?

:05:04.:05:05.

You have been at the centre of a media storm today.

:05:06.:05:09.

Going on holiday is my solution to it.

:05:10.:05:13.

After the hearing in January I went on holiday and I am taking my wife

:05:14.:05:17.

Neil Richards, you are a local teacher but also a parent.

:05:18.:05:24.

Do you have sympathy with the situation

:05:25.:05:25.

Jon found himself in and his solution?

:05:26.:05:31.

As a parent I have enormous empathy for anyone, any

:05:32.:05:37.

parent who wants to take their children on holiday but as a

:05:38.:05:41.

teacher, as a member of the union, I cannot

:05:42.:05:43.

agree with what Jon did and I

:05:44.:05:45.

agree with the decision today in the Supreme Court.

:05:46.:05:49.

Taking your child out of school is disruptive to your child

:05:50.:05:55.

and the education of other children in their class.

:05:56.:05:58.

He is entitled to his view, he is a parent.

:05:59.:06:05.

In my view he should be able to have his children in school

:06:06.:06:08.

100% of the time if that is what he feels is best for his child.

:06:09.:06:11.

What I would say to Neil is that if you

:06:12.:06:14.

believe that every absence from school

:06:15.:06:17.

has a negative impact, I have

:06:18.:06:25.

research paper 171, which shows taking your child in a family

:06:26.:06:29.

holiday correlates positively with educational outcomes.

:06:30.:06:33.

If every absence had the same negative impact

:06:34.:06:35.

on children's education, that would justify the school never taking them

:06:36.:06:38.

All absences are not the same and the impact

:06:39.:06:44.

At least now we have clarity, don't we?

:06:45.:06:48.

I guess from a school point of view it helps.

:06:49.:06:50.

It is a clear outcome from the Supreme Court.

:06:51.:06:54.

I hope there is a realistic interpretation of the outcome so

:06:55.:06:57.

in, there has been a free for all in recent months.

:06:58.:07:10.

Statistics have risen rapidly with unauthorised absence.

:07:11.:07:17.

Nearly 200,000 unauthorised absences in the last year alone, compared

:07:18.:07:19.

There were over 300 million absences because of illness.

:07:20.:07:34.

The figures you are saying, the number of unauthorised

:07:35.:07:37.

absences has risen dramatically, the number

:07:38.:07:38.

A bigger proportion are unauthorised.

:07:39.:07:40.

That is a reflection of policy and not fact.

:07:41.:07:45.

The number of children missing school, 0.4% of

:07:46.:07:48.

the possible days in school, were lost to family holidays.

:07:49.:07:53.

And the government has gone through this

:07:54.:07:55.

enormous amount of litigation to try and squash 0.4%.

:07:56.:07:57.

As we said, Jon, you have been at the centre of this.

:07:58.:08:06.

I will certainly consider the Supreme Court verdict

:08:07.:08:15.

in any decisions I make in the future.

:08:16.:08:19.

If the school rules say I can take my child out of school for

:08:20.:08:26.

ten days year, I will probably at times have

:08:27.:08:29.

If they say that my child must be in school every

:08:30.:08:32.

single day, unless the

:08:33.:08:33.

school authorise it, I will probably have to move my child

:08:34.:08:36.

Joanna has been catching up with your comments and she is live in the

:08:37.:08:53.

newsroom tonight. It has divided opinion on the Facebook page today.

:08:54.:08:57.

Mark asks, how can a teacher decide my daughter can have a reward day

:08:58.:09:02.

and I cannot? Why are the kids finishing at midday tomorrow for

:09:03.:09:06.

Easter holidays? David disagrees and says it is a good decision. Why

:09:07.:09:11.

should any parent be allowed to disrupt the education of children

:09:12.:09:14.

whose parents do not take their offspring away on holiday during

:09:15.:09:18.

term time? Jonathan Harmer, holidays are a luxury and not a right. I had

:09:19.:09:23.

my first overseas holiday when I was in my 30s. I did not cry about it by

:09:24.:09:28.

-- like some righteous entitled parents. Tracy is backing Jon Platt.

:09:29.:09:35.

She said she had taken her son out of school for a week since 2009 and

:09:36.:09:42.

his education had not suffered as he has learned from life rather than a

:09:43.:09:46.

book and blackboard. A lot of parents make the point of the

:09:47.:09:50.

costings of holidays. John Shapley said, that is right, bully the

:09:51.:09:54.

parents out of more money. Why not take action on holiday companies

:09:55.:09:57.

charging extortionate rates? Thank you. Other news now.

:09:58.:10:03.

A man who broke into a house in Weymouth and got into bed

:10:04.:10:06.

with a six-year-old girl has been found not guilty of sexually

:10:07.:10:09.

Jervaise Kevin Jones was asleep in the bed when police arrived.

:10:10.:10:12.

He maintained throughout that he had not interfered with the girl.

:10:13.:10:15.

The case centred on the events taking place

:10:16.:10:21.

early one morning in a terraced house in Weymouth last October.

:10:22.:10:28.

In court there was no dispute that the

:10:29.:10:30.

26-year-old Jervaise had broken into a house and got

:10:31.:10:32.

The question at the heart of the trial was whether he had

:10:33.:10:36.

Today, after deliberating for almost four hours

:10:37.:10:41.

the jury found him not guilty of sexually assaulting a child under

:10:42.:10:47.

the age of 13 and not guilty of trespassing with intent

:10:48.:10:50.

For legal reasons the girl and her family cannot be identified.

:10:51.:10:54.

Her father spoke to us after hearing the not

:10:55.:10:56.

His words are spoken by a BBC journalist.

:10:57.:11:04.

It is something we're feeling very deeply.

:11:05.:11:08.

It's not something that is going to go away.

:11:09.:11:10.

The court was told police found Jervaise Jones asleep

:11:11.:11:18.

and naked from the waist down when they arrived at the house.

:11:19.:11:23.

He had been out drinking in Weymouth and said he had no recollection

:11:24.:11:26.

The jury heard he had a series of previous convictions

:11:27.:11:32.

for theft, drug offences and assault.

:11:33.:11:34.

Defence barrister Nick Robinson said Mr Jones had not

:11:35.:11:37.

committed any previous sexual offences.

:11:38.:11:44.

He told the jury it was remarkable that none of Mr Jones DNA

:11:45.:11:47.

Next Monday, in a separate and unrelated case, he is

:11:48.:11:57.

due to be sentenced for drug offences

:11:58.:11:59.

and an assault on a police constable.

:12:00.:12:05.

A BBC investigation has found more than 1,000 gun crimes have been

:12:06.:12:08.

investigated by Thames Valley Police in the past six years.

:12:09.:12:11.

Firearms were involved in 158 incidents between January

:12:12.:12:15.

and October last year - up from 152 for the whole

:12:16.:12:18.

The Office for National Statistics says there were four gun

:12:19.:12:27.

crimes for every 100,000 - that's below the

:12:28.:12:29.

Joel Campbell is in Dorset for the launch of a new exhibition. We will

:12:30.:12:41.

hear from some of those who fought in these tanks and others who found

:12:42.:12:46.

themselves at the sight of the rest of the Tiger family.

:12:47.:12:53.

A soldier who murdered his former girlfriend at her Bournemouth

:12:54.:12:56.

home has been sentenced to life in prison.

:12:57.:12:57.

Jay Nava, who's 27, will serve a minimum of 21 years behind bars.

:12:58.:13:03.

He was found guilty of stabbing 26-year-old Natasha Wake 11 times

:13:04.:13:06.

Academics from Portsmouth have looked for the first time at the

:13:07.:13:21.

effect on social media of children running away from home. Around

:13:22.:13:26.

140,000 under 18 go missing from the UK each year. A report says

:13:27.:13:31.

publicity appeals trying to find them can remain online for years

:13:32.:13:33.

leaving a negative aftermath difficult to shake off. It suggests

:13:34.:13:39.

children need better protection from a digital footprint and possibly

:13:40.:13:41.

asking old sites to remove stories. Bournemouth's unbeaten run is now

:13:42.:13:50.

five games in the top flight. Tony, they are going great. I was a

:13:51.:13:59.

bit worried about them a couple of months ago. Another valuable point

:14:00.:14:06.

in the Premier league last night. Before kick-off...

:14:07.:14:11.

Anfield remembered the 28th anniversary of the Hillsborough

:14:12.:14:16.

were in front early on as Benik Afobe capitalised

:14:17.:14:23.

on this error, Bournemouth had to show their character though,

:14:24.:14:26.

Phillippe Coutinho levelled and then after half time, Divovk Orgi

:14:27.:14:28.

But Eddie Howe's side dug deep and in form Joshua King grabbed

:14:29.:14:32.

I thought we showed a really good mentality in the game.

:14:33.:14:36.

I thought we defended excellently at times.

:14:37.:14:38.

In the end I don't think anyone can argue we got the draw.

:14:39.:14:41.

I was at St Mary's last night, where Southampton produced

:14:42.:14:43.

an impressive second half display to end Crystal Palace's

:14:44.:14:46.

but there was some new turf on the Saints penalty spot.

:14:47.:14:52.

Palace took the lead with a fine goal from Christian Benteke

:14:53.:14:55.

Palace complained vocally about the equaliser from Nathan Redmond

:14:56.:14:59.

after an apparent push by Steven Davies on Wilf Zaha.

:15:00.:15:04.

In a second half full of chances, Palace hit a post before

:15:05.:15:07.

Maya Yoshida got the last touch to Redmond's cross.

:15:08.:15:11.

Just a minute or so later, James Ward-Prowse competed a fine

:15:12.:15:13.

move to seal a win which lifts Saints to 10th,

:15:14.:15:17.

Where you aggrieved at the nature of Southampton's equaliser?

:15:18.:15:28.

Assistant referee's totally out of order.

:15:29.:15:32.

It is not nice going behind in the game but I

:15:33.:15:35.

think it shows the character we have got in the dressing room and the way

:15:36.:15:38.

the fans got behind us, you know, they really spurred us on.

:15:39.:15:41.

Oxford's promotion hopes were damaged by defeat against Fleetwood

:15:42.:15:45.

last night. But conceded the early goal. The visitors are now third and

:15:46.:15:52.

went back in front through Ashley Eastern and scored a third goal late

:15:53.:15:53.

in the game, as well. In a year's time we'll be

:15:54.:15:56.

into the first few days of competition in the Commonwealth

:15:57.:15:58.

Games. And two Bournemouth-based beach

:15:59.:16:00.

volleyball players hope to be bidding for gold in the inaugural

:16:01.:16:02.

staging of the sport at the Games. Jake Sheaf and Chris Gregory play

:16:03.:16:05.

on the international circuit but missed the Olympics last year

:16:06.:16:08.

when Chris was injured, so they're determined not to miss

:16:09.:16:10.

out on another big event. Think of beach volleyball, think

:16:11.:16:23.

Sun, sand and sea. In this case it is under a roof in Bournemouth. For

:16:24.:16:27.

Jake and Chris it is training. This hard work should result in a place

:16:28.:16:33.

in the England team at the Commonwealth Games were beach

:16:34.:16:37.

volleyball makes its debut. It is huge for the sport. The Commonwealth

:16:38.:16:40.

Games is highly recognised as an event in England. Everybody watches

:16:41.:16:45.

it as they do the Olympic Games. Having beach volleyball there will

:16:46.:16:49.

put it on the map a bit more. And hopefully bringing a medal home will

:16:50.:16:52.

make the country proud of having a beach volleyball team. The pair

:16:53.:16:56.

still work part-time to support their sporting endeavours, and being

:16:57.:17:00.

a close partnership is not without challenges. We have clashes

:17:01.:17:06.

sometimes. And I think when the dynamic is good if those naturally

:17:07.:17:09.

and sometimes one thing outweighs the other but on the court, we share

:17:10.:17:14.

captaincy sometimes, and depending on who is under pressure, somebody

:17:15.:17:17.

will take the lead over the other. Aggressive. You had to adapt always

:17:18.:17:21.

in situations in any type of sport and find a way to win. That is what

:17:22.:17:28.

we try to do. Jake and Chris have a punishing schedule ahead. Up to 12

:17:29.:17:32.

world tour events around the globe. They have to sustain their world

:17:33.:17:36.

ranking to make sure they get their places at the Commonwealth Games. I

:17:37.:17:41.

think we are going for gold. I don't think anything... We are going to

:17:42.:17:46.

win the thing, those of our aspirations. We are going to be

:17:47.:17:51.

working towards that. The Gold Coast will host 23 sports at the 21st

:17:52.:17:56.

Commonwealth Games. These beach buddies could bring a slice of gold

:17:57.:17:57.

has opened in Dorset, featuring the fearsome fighting

machines, and the people To mark the event, four

:18:58.:18:59.

veterans from that conflict, two German and two British,

:19:00.:19:03.

had an extraordinary meeting. This is the Tiger Tank. One of the

:19:04.:19:18.

most feared weapons of the Second World War and just beyond you can

:19:19.:19:21.

see a collection of the relatives. The biggest gathering since the

:19:22.:19:25.

conflict itself, as it were. Coming to the belly of the beast as it

:19:26.:19:31.

were. Four inches of steel armour to keep the crusade. And this is the 88

:19:32.:19:36.

millimetre gun which was guaranteed to strike fear into the hearts of

:19:37.:19:40.

those who faced it. Today some of those who fought their war from

inside these cramped positions and some of them who were in their

sights, came together once more. It is wonderful we can meet like

impressive tank. Much more advanced than other designs. I was pleased to

operate it. It was the bees knees when it came to technology. Such was

of the American Sherman tank, squeezing in an extra powerful

:20:35.:20:38.

British gun into the turret. Ken helped to accrue one of the

:20:39.:20:43.

so-called Sherman firefly is. I was in action when one of the fireflys

:20:44.:20:49.

knocked out three of these things in seven minutes. It was not a

:20:50.:20:56.

one-sided story. The man in the Tiger Tank was still in danger.

:20:57.:21:02.

TRANSLATION: Even in a tiger you always had fear for your life. You

:21:03.:21:05.

felt vulnerable. Those who said they were not frightened were lying. The

:21:06.:21:13.

Tiger still draws the crowds. For these men, who knew it on the

:21:14.:21:16.

battlefield, it ties them together still. It was a secret guilt of

:21:17.:21:22.

those who had been in the front line and therefore new when a man was

:21:23.:21:28.

surrendering, you were probably responsible for doing to his

:21:29.:21:32.

comrades what he had been doing to our comrades. TRANSLATION: It is a

:21:33.:21:38.

shame we could not have this relationship before. We are all

:21:39.:21:41.

comrades now. Everything else is forgotten. I am with David, the

:21:42.:21:51.

curator at this museum. Was this such a fierce opponent as our own

:21:52.:21:56.

commanders think it was? It was certainly impressive. A good thing

:21:57.:21:59.

brought the British and the allies is that they never made that many of

:22:00.:22:05.

these famous Tiger Tanks. They were too few to make a difference,

:22:06.:22:09.

luckily. We know they were not perfect. Look behind us here. One of

:22:10.:22:12.

the once you have got here for this show is actually effectively a

:22:13.:22:16.

prototype of one of the versions which did not work at all, the

:22:17.:22:20.

elephant here. They were notoriously unreliable. A lot of them broke

:22:21.:22:26.

down. Not that many were made in the production runs. Thankfully, even

:22:27.:22:31.

though they look big and impressive and with the audience everybody

:22:32.:22:37.

knows they are called Tiger Tanks, fortunately for the Allies they do

:22:38.:22:40.

not do that much damage on the Western front. We are so lucky of

:22:41.:22:44.

course having a range of them here so everybody can see them and see

:22:45.:22:50.

the idea. You can understand why the crews were frightened of them. The

:22:51.:22:53.

chances of meeting one, honestly in wartime, fairly thin. Thank you,

:22:54.:22:59.

David. These tanks will be here for the rest of the summer and beyond.

:23:00.:23:03.

STUDIO: Thank you, Joe. He was in his element! A boyhood dream

:23:04.:23:09.

realised. Alexis had joined us on the sofa. Lovely day again.

:23:10.:23:13.

The good news is it is warming up for the weekend. Sunday potentially

:23:14.:23:19.

the hottest day with a high are potentially 21, 20 two. Some unusual

:23:20.:23:27.

weather photos. This was photographed by Chris in Winslow in

:23:28.:23:31.

Buckinghamshire. A vertical shaft of light formed when sunlight reflects

:23:32.:23:36.

from the services of ice crystals associated with high-level clouds

:23:37.:23:41.

such as Cirrus. This was captured in Portsmouth by Maureen. Thank you.

:23:42.:23:46.

And one more, in Weymouth, taken earlier today, this is the sun

:23:47.:23:50.

pillar here. Clear skies overnight. Chilly temperatures courtesy of

:23:51.:23:55.

clear skies and light wind. Temperatures falling away. In the

:23:56.:24:00.

countryside we could get down to two Celsius, in towns and cities, those

:24:01.:24:06.

of 7-9. First thing this morning, at Bournemouth airport, around 0.5

:24:07.:24:10.

Celsius, similar first thing tomorrow morning, we could have. A

:24:11.:24:14.

lot of sunshine on the tomorrow. Maybe cloudier than today.

:24:15.:24:18.

Particularly further north and east. Generally in the sunshine

:24:19.:24:21.

temperatures up to around 14, may be 15 and even 16 Celsius. Similar to

:24:22.:24:27.

what we had today, especially for cell third spot. Wind light and

:24:28.:24:31.

variable. Similar damages to deny. -- similar spots. Temperatures in

:24:32.:24:37.

the countryside could get down to three or four Celsius. This is in

:24:38.:24:42.

towns and cities. Over the weekend, drawing in warm air from the near

:24:43.:24:46.

continent. We can see high-pressure starting to pull away towards the

:24:47.:24:50.

east. That means we develop a southerly breeze. Fairly light in

:24:51.:24:53.

the course of Saturday. Warm air moving in on Saturday afternoon. On

:24:54.:24:57.

Saturday, ten bridges in the high teens in Celsius. On the coast with

:24:58.:25:03.

sea breeze it will feel fresher. -- temperatures in the high teens.

:25:04.:25:07.

Maybe 14 or 15 at best. Looking at the weekend as a whole, sunny

:25:08.:25:11.

spells, Chile each morning and maybe a touch of frost each morning. Warm

:25:12.:25:18.

on Sunday. Could go up to 21 or even 22 Celsius. Outlook for the rest of

:25:19.:25:21.

the week and into the weekend and next week when it gets cooler.

:25:22.:25:26.

Tomorrow, lots of sunshine, lovely conditions over the weekend, a high

:25:27.:25:30.

of 21 Celsius on Sunday. A warm southerly breeze, fairly light,

:25:31.:25:35.

bringing temperatures into the low 20s in Celsius. All changing next

:25:36.:25:39.

week. A cold front moving in on Sunday night making conditions

:25:40.:25:42.

fresher on Monday, back to the seasonal average. I do, a lot to

:25:43.:25:48.

look forward to. You might remember at school you might have had a class

:25:49.:25:52.

pet, gerbils, rabbits, perhaps. School pupils in Berkshire have been

:25:53.:25:58.

looking after trout! It is part of a major project where schools were

:25:59.:26:01.

given hundreds of trout by a conservation group. Tom Pett work

:26:02.:26:05.

went to reading-macro to find out more. You remember what a brown

:26:06.:26:09.

trout nest is called? -- reading-macro. A school of fish in a

:26:10.:26:18.

tank in a classroom. -- Reading. Children took delivery of these eggs

:26:19.:26:21.

in January. They are now ready to be released into the wild but the

:26:22.:26:24.

journey has not been without jeopardy. All the trout was sucked

:26:25.:26:30.

up into the filter. But some of them survived. How many do you have left?

:26:31.:26:38.

Yesterday the teacher said we had 13. How many did you start with?

:26:39.:26:44.

About 100. It is tougher in the wild. Just 5% of brown trout

:26:45.:26:48.

survived more than one year. It is time to say goodbye to these fish,

:26:49.:26:53.

one by one. Goodbye. Are you sad to see it go? Yes. What was the best

:26:54.:27:00.

part about looking after them? Probably learning about them. Very

:27:01.:27:04.

nice to see children that might not have visited a river or ever thought

:27:05.:27:07.

what lives in it, nice to introduce them to something new. Maybe in

:27:08.:27:12.

future with their parents and grandparents they will return to

:27:13.:27:15.

that part of river. This tributary is now home to the Ridgeway brown

:27:16.:27:19.

trout. After Easter the children are getting eels.

:27:20.:27:25.

Wiping their trout on its way! It is time for us to say goodbye, as well.

:27:26.:27:33.

The next news is here on BBC One at eight o'clock and more at 10.30. We

:27:34.:27:37.

are back tomorrow. We hope you can join us again. Have a good evening.

:27:38.:27:38.

Good night. Stacey and Chris are preparing for

:27:39.:27:52.

marriage by spending a few days living alone with

:27:53.:27:54.

their in-laws to be, and asking them all kinds of

:27:55.:27:57.

questions. Did you get a kiss on

:27:58.:27:59.

the first date? No. What does their in-laws' marriage

:28:00.:28:02.

tell them about each other's I expect you'll want to become

:28:03.:28:04.

a schoolmaster, sir. That's what most of the gentlemen

:28:05.:28:13.

does that get sent down for indecent behaviour.

:28:14.:28:16.

Evelyn Waugh's classic novel. Have you ever been in love,

:28:17.:28:18.

Mr Pennyfeather? No, not yet. The fire escape is very dangerous

:28:19.:28:21.

and never to be used.

:28:22.:28:25.
