The tragedy of little Harry House. night. Daniel, thank you very much.

:00:15.:00:28.

As the two-year-old's killer is sent to prison for 18 years,

:00:29.:00:31.

a judge says we may never know the extent of his mistreatment.

:00:32.:00:36.

"No-one will ever know the extent of your mistreatment of Harry."

:00:37.:00:39.

The words of a judge today as she sentenced Josephe Eke

:00:40.:00:41.

to a minimum term of 18 years for the murder of

:00:42.:00:44.

The court heard how the little boy was brutally kicked and punched

:00:45.:00:53.

Harry House was left with Josephe Eke. He had a fractured skull and

:00:54.:01:05.

bruising all over his body. Josephe Eke always denied killing Harry

:01:06.:01:15.

House. Did you assault him? I haven't been like that towards him.

:01:16.:01:20.

The trial heard he was a heroin addict and had footage -- had

:01:21.:01:26.

footage of him assaulting Miss O'Neill. This was her reaction.

:01:27.:01:32.

Justice the Harry. Harry should be a three and a half

:01:33.:01:57.

-year-old boy, looking forward to school and unfortunately that life

:01:58.:02:01.

has been taken from him. The investigation team is sad and it has

:02:02.:02:05.

been an emotional investigation and we have had a picture of Harry up in

:02:06.:02:10.

our crew room for the whole time. I am pleased justice have been served

:02:11.:02:16.

but it was a sad day Joseph showed no apology for his death. Harry's

:02:17.:02:23.

family will now try to move on from their heartbreak.

:02:24.:02:27.

Part of one of the south's major roads has been closed

:02:28.:02:29.

for much of the afternoon after a major accident.

:02:30.:02:31.

There have been a number of injuries in the crash,

:02:32.:02:34.

involving three lorries and a car, on the M3, near Winchester.

:02:35.:02:36.

Matt Treacy is live for us, near the M3, tonight.

:02:37.:02:39.

Despite the bad weather, work is continuing to remove the vehicles

:02:40.:02:57.

involved in that crash eight hours ago.

:02:58.:03:01.

Emergency services were called just before 10.30 this morning

:03:02.:03:03.

to an incident involving at least three lorries and one car.

:03:04.:03:06.

For a time this morning, the motorway was shut

the air ambulance to land, part of a huge response from

:03:09.:03:12.

It caused significant traffic jams in the area.

:03:13.:03:22.

One person was taken to Southampton General

:03:23.:03:24.

Another was taken to Winchester hospital with minor injuries

:03:25.:03:27.

and a third person was treated here at the scene.

:03:28.:03:33.

This has caused traffic delays in the area and this is a significant

:03:34.:03:39.

part of the roadwork coming from the south coast coming up to the north.

:03:40.:03:43.

Less than a mile in that direction as the A34, a major intersection

with the motor macro three. Ten miles in both directions. -- M3. In

hours still to come. It's claimed tonight that health

and Ambulance Services here have a combined total of more

:04:32.:04:38.

than 4,500 vacancies - and hundreds more GPs

:04:39.:04:41.

and nurses are needed According to the British

:04:42.:04:43.

Medical Association, increasing workloads,

:04:44.:04:46.

under-investment, and pay issues, are just some of the reasons staff

:04:47.:04:47.

are leaving the profession. So how do those hoping to be elected

:04:48.:04:50.

into the next government Our Health Correspondent,

:04:51.:04:53.

Nikki Mitchell, joins me. With 30 years experience in neonatal

and paediatric nursing, Filling shifts which hospitals can't

fill because they have I work as an agency

:05:04.:05:07.

and a bank nurse. I am there because there

:05:08.:05:16.

is a shortage of nurses. There are a lot of stories, people

:05:17.:05:18.

going home completely demoralised, Those sorts of shifts

:05:19.:05:21.

and your workload is intense. You are not getting the breaks

:05:22.:05:28.

and people need a period of refreshment where they can

:05:29.:05:30.

eat and drink. Going home very late,

:05:31.:05:34.

that is becoming more frequent. At University Hospital

:06:05.:06:08.

of trained staff meant checks were late or missed and some

of the mental health wards at Saint James'

:06:34.:06:36.

Hospital in Portsmouth. More investment is

:06:37.:06:38.

definitely required. The trusts are doing all they can

:06:39.:06:39.

to maintain the best staff to maintain patients

:06:40.:06:42.

but unfortunately the situation is becoming unsustainable

:06:43.:06:48.

and we need to look to a future government to put in place

:06:49.:06:51.

a national workforce strategy that So what do the political

:06:52.:06:53.

parties have to say? We want to cite up a national

:06:54.:06:57.

workforce strategy. Second thing, we want to make sure

:06:58.:06:59.

the EU nationals are working in the NHS and care sector

:07:00.:07:02.

and can remain here. Thirdly, we want to make sure

:07:03.:07:04.

bursaries are given to nurses that want to train and we want to remove

:07:05.:07:08.

the pay cut because in the south-east and south,

:07:09.:07:11.

it is very expensive to live. We do need to focus on how

:07:12.:07:14.

quickly we can train people in the workforce without any way

:07:15.:07:17.

compromising our standards and we need to make sure people

:07:18.:07:19.

feel their work is rewarding, they are not overburdened

:07:20.:07:22.

by bureaucracy and that they do get The first thing we would do

:07:23.:07:25.

is remove the 1% pay cap so staff Secondly, we guarantee EU citizens

:07:26.:07:43.

the right to stay in the UK after Brexit. We do that as part of the

:07:44.:07:49.

negotiation. Thirdly, provide more support the student nurses. We need

:07:50.:07:54.

to extend training places and the bursary for students. We need to

:07:55.:07:58.

value staff and make them feel welcome and supported when they are

:07:59.:08:02.

at work and help stop people leaving. Ukip says it will increase

:08:03.:08:07.

the number of training placements the doctors, nurses, midwives and

:08:08.:08:11.

other health professionals and pay their tuition fees if they commit to

:08:12.:08:12.

working for the NHS. Bridget is keen to stress that being

:08:13.:08:28.

a nurses hugely rewarding. She just wishes there were enough of them to

:08:29.:08:33.

meet the soaring demand. In the past, I have not wanted to talk

:08:34.:08:37.

about the crisis because it worries the general public but I personally

:08:38.:08:44.

think it is time for people to become worried. Given the years it

:08:45.:08:48.

takes to train nurses, doctors and other professionals, the unions

:08:49.:08:52.

representing them believe it will take successive governments to solve

:08:53.:08:55.

the critical staff shortage once and for all.

:08:56.:08:58.

Our Health Correspondent Nikki Mitchell is with me now.

:08:59.:09:00.

We heard there about staff shortages in hospitals,

:09:01.:09:02.

mental health units and community teams, how serious is the situation

:09:03.:09:05.

GPs are struggling with increasing workloads.

:09:06.:09:13.

They're exhausted and are worried their patients

:09:14.:09:16.

Just last week we heard of yet another of the South's GP surgeries

:09:17.:09:28.

There was a poll of 22 of their current trainees and of those, only

:09:29.:09:43.

eight in ten to go directly into general practice in the UK. The

:09:44.:09:48.

others are taking leave, going to work abroad and they are retraining

:09:49.:09:52.

in other specialties. One of them is considering leaving medicine before

:09:53.:09:54.

they have started. It is not good. As we're just days away

:09:55.:09:57.

from the general election, we're entering that final push

:09:58.:10:00.

in the campaign for our votes. Our reporter Ben Moore has spent

:10:01.:10:02.

a whole day travelling across the south to talk to people

:10:03.:10:05.

who often feel Early in the morning, Portsmouth,

:10:06.:10:20.

the city is waking up and people are coming off the ferry. There are 4

:10:21.:10:23.

million people who live in the south of England and over the next 24

:10:24.:10:28.

hours, we will try and talk to as many as possible in a day. At the

:10:29.:10:34.

fish market, there are strong opinions but not everyone wants to

:10:35.:10:40.

talk. The main topic for those working on our coast seems still to

:10:41.:10:47.

be Brexit. We are governed by the EU and the fishing laws. We are leaving

:10:48.:10:51.

the EU so we should be able to make our own rules but we are not.

:10:52.:10:58.

Everyday is a struggle. They promise waiters are going to go up but they

:10:59.:11:04.

never go up. When you focus for something as big as Brexit and you

:11:05.:11:13.

don't see a change... Why bother. Eastleigh is a marginal. There are

:11:14.:11:18.

those here that feel marginalised. When the Conservatives got in, they

:11:19.:11:23.

introduced bedroom tax and it has affected my mum, my brothers. I

:11:24.:11:30.

don't see why I should vote Conservative. They have damaged my

:11:31.:11:36.

life so far. I met Lynn who was leaving after signing on. Her bad

:11:37.:11:40.

knee has cost her job and ?10,000 for a private -- private operation.

:11:41.:11:50.

I always voted Tory but I am not impressed at the moment. They are

:11:51.:11:56.

hitting me and my group the same all the time. Bang, bang, bang. You've

:11:57.:12:03.

got my son who is talking about emigrating. I'm going to lose my

:12:04.:12:11.

grandchildren as well. Down the road, Allison and Katie are hard at

:12:12.:12:17.

work. They will vote for the first time this week. I am a single parent

:12:18.:12:22.

and I work. It is finding someone to have my child. We struggle and that

:12:23.:12:26.

is the main thing for me. Childcare and finding hours that fit around

:12:27.:12:35.

that. It is hard to find mat. The town centre Bracknell in Berkshire

:12:36.:12:39.

is undergoing a rebuild as you can see. This is Tory heartland but the

:12:40.:12:46.

voters here do now have a chance to restructure the political landscape.

:12:47.:12:50.

Edging towards the Conservatives. At the end of the day, we are still

:12:51.:12:54.

doing all right and there still loads of jobs and lives of

:12:55.:12:57.

developments happening. Tough times ahead with Brexit but although they

:12:58.:13:03.

have not done a great job, they've done a job. I've not heard that

:13:04.:13:15.

before. Exactly. As the light starts to fade, those voting for the first

:13:16.:13:18.

time on Thursday are out on Bournemouth beach.

:13:19.:13:29.

We are asking whether you guys are voting or not or whether you care

:13:30.:13:41.

about it. Despite you not voting, they are switched on. I don't trust

:13:42.:13:46.

anyone. You agree with some of the policies but not all that them. All

:13:47.:13:53.

the friends I knew before didn't vote and now they are. It has been a

:13:54.:14:00.

long day and is not just the places we have been that so different but

:14:01.:14:06.

what people want this election. There is fundamental concerns

:14:07.:14:09.

Brexit, the NHS, education. There are a lot of other concerns also.

:14:10.:14:15.

Wage rises, student debt, house prices and there is still voter

:14:16.:14:20.

apathy. That feeling that no matter what the politicians say about how

:14:21.:14:24.

different they are now, that they are really not working in the

:14:25.:14:27.

interests of the ordinary man and woman. That perhaps is still the big

:14:28.:14:35.

issue as the sun begins to set on another general election.

:14:36.:14:42.

Operations and other medical treatments were cancelled, today,

:14:43.:14:44.

after a fire broke out at Chichester's St

:14:45.:14:46.

The hospital had to be evacuated and fire crews attended the blaze,

:14:47.:14:51.

If you want to know what the weather is like this week, stay with us.

:14:52.:15:04.

It will be wet and windy at times this week. I will have the weather

:15:05.:15:12.

for the week ahead shortly. It is a big day for Ben Ainslie in

:15:13.:15:28.

Bermuda. We were talking about the weather on Friday and how important

:15:29.:15:32.

the weather is. Do we know what the weather is like in Bermuda?

:15:33.:15:37.

In the last half hour, Ben Ainslie's Portsmouth based

:15:38.:15:39.

Land Rover BAR team have been in action in their first race

:15:40.:15:42.

in the America's Cup challenger semi-finals in Bermuda.

:15:43.:15:46.

Racing yesterday was cancelled because of light winds

:15:47.:15:48.

but that certainly wasn't a problem today and played very much

:15:49.:15:51.

Our Sports Editor Tony Husband is in Bermuda where the competition

:15:52.:15:57.

is still under way right now, Tony.

:15:58.:16:09.

We have some real drama here on this first day of the semifinal racing.

:16:10.:16:16.

The first race was underway between the Portsmouth base Land Rover BAR

:16:17.:16:25.

and a Kiwi team. Whilst Sir Ben Ainslie team -- Ben Ainslie's team

:16:26.:16:30.

sustained some damage, the boat is being brought in. They will have to

:16:31.:16:35.

do a wind change. They will have to take this one off and they will have

:16:36.:16:40.

to get the other one on and then try and get back out on the water in

:16:41.:16:45.

time to phase the Kiwi's in today's second scheduled race in about 30

:16:46.:16:51.

minutes time. Real drama. We can show you pictures of what happened

:16:52.:16:55.

during the race. They made a reasonably good start. The wind

:16:56.:16:59.

conditions were favourable but then big problems struck for them and

:17:00.:17:04.

therefore they had to retire from the wet -- retire from the race.

:17:05.:17:12.

Let's bring in Martin, the CEO of the team. The boat has arrived back

:17:13.:17:17.

and it is extremely tight. We will try and change the win. It is a 24

:17:18.:17:22.

metre wing. We don't normally change the wing on the water because of the

:17:23.:17:28.

difficulty but it is our only option here. We have ten minutes before we

:17:29.:17:34.

can get out there. This isn't something we have rehearsed or would

:17:35.:17:38.

do normally. These wings have been incredibly reliable and we have been

:17:39.:17:42.

out in bigger winds than this. This is a new one but it happens in

:17:43.:17:48.

sport. A big challenge here and we are not sure whether we will get out

:17:49.:17:52.

but we will do everything we can. Is it fair to say our America's Cup

:17:53.:17:59.

challenges in the balance? It will be pretty windy and we will see what

:18:00.:18:03.

it will happen. It is a blow today and we will have to give away that

:18:04.:18:09.

first race and it will be very tight to get out the second but we will do

:18:10.:18:13.

everything we can. It is part of being in a team race and you face

:18:14.:18:19.

these things. This is not a routine procedure and it would be very

:18:20.:18:22.

tricky to see if we can pull this off. We appreciate you joining us.

:18:23.:18:28.

We have unfolding drama on the water behind us. They are busy trying to

:18:29.:18:33.

get the boat out there. If they don't, there will be more racing but

:18:34.:18:39.

Maude drama. Artemis and Japan will be out there also. Back to you.

:18:40.:18:44.

Cricket and our bowlers have been in fine form

:18:45.:18:46.

in the County Championship today wrapping up impressive wins for both

:18:47.:18:48.

by an innings and 94 runs for their third win of the season

:18:49.:18:54.

They restricted the visitors to just 100 and 67 in the follow on.

:18:55.:18:58.

And there was an impressive win too for Sussex, beating

:18:59.:19:01.

Worcestershire by an innings and seven runs.

:19:02.:19:05.

The visitors were bowled out for 260, Sussex overseas signing

:19:06.:19:10.

South African Vernon Philander taking three for 30.

:19:11.:19:14.

We understand Liverpool are now the firm favourites to sign

:19:15.:19:17.

Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk.

:19:18.:19:18.

However, no deal's been reached with Southampton yet and Liverpool

:19:19.:19:23.

Meanwhile, four Saints players are among five from our region to be

:19:24.:19:28.

selected for the England Under 20 ones squad for the forthcoming

:19:29.:19:32.

Southampton's James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond, Jack Stephens

:19:33.:19:45.

and Matt Targett all feature along with Reading's John Swift.

England face Sweden in their opening group game

:19:48.:19:49.

Surrey Storm's hopes of reaching the netball Superleague finals

The Guildford based defending champions had to settle

for a disappointing fifth place league finish after a close

Weymouth's Beach classic volleyball tournament will go ahead after local

:20:05.:20:19.

businesses stepped in to sponsor the event. Many international and

:20:20.:20:24.

national players battle it out. A fundraising came has played off and

:20:25.:20:32.

it will play at the end of July. It is a good note to finish on. We will

:20:33.:20:38.

have the weather now and we will be joining Alexis in a moment. First,

:20:39.:20:45.

your pictures. We have this stunning picture of the blue skies over the

:20:46.:20:51.

weekend. Colin photographed this sunshine at the River Avon. Alexis

:20:52.:21:02.

is here. There is a lot of wind around.

:21:03.:21:06.

We may have some gale force winds coming up. We have some blustery

:21:07.:21:14.

conditions overnight night. The chance of gales for the coast. The

:21:15.:21:20.

driest of the days will be Wednesday and Friday. Overnight tonight, a

:21:21.:21:24.

period of rain. Once the rain dissipates, it will dissipate into

:21:25.:21:31.

showers. Quite a mild night to come. Tomorrow, the showers will continue

:21:32.:21:36.

and they make the heavy for a time. Temperatures tomorrow afternoon will

:21:37.:21:43.

reach a high of 17 Celsius. There is the risk of hail and thunder.

:21:44.:21:47.

will have glorious sunny spells. Patchy cloud through the afternoon

:22:06.:22:09.

but in the sunshine, temperatures will do very well indeed reaching 17

:22:10.:22:15.

to 18 Celsius. That is around average for this time of year. The

:22:16.:22:23.

wind will be brisk. We have more blustery conditions along coastal

:22:24.:22:27.

stretches. This is the next period of rain moving in from the Atlantic.

:22:28.:22:31.

The Windies brisk, stronger for the south coast. Through Thursday, we

:22:32.:22:38.

will have some heavy rain at times. Some dry interludes as well. Friday,

:22:39.:22:43.

some dry periods with a high of 18 Celsius. Through the weekend, rain

is possible but it is uncertain as that timing of the rain band moving
