That's all from the BBC News at Six.

0:00:000:00:11

Hello, welcome to South

today, I'm Sally Taylor.

0:00:110:00:13

Tonight.

0:00:130:00:14

This

0:00:140:00:14

Police say it is unfortunate

they did not catch

0:00:140:00:20

this Shoreham man before he beat

a man to death over an unpaid bill.

0:00:200:00:23

She has spent 600 days

in an Iranian prison.

0:00:230:00:26

Now Nazanin's husband says

they will continue the campaign to

0:00:260:00:28

set her free.

0:00:280:00:29

One of the world's top classical

orchestras joins children

0:00:290:00:31

in Southampton for a very

special performance.

0:00:310:00:33

It is the first time

I have seen them play,

0:00:330:00:36

and playing altogether.

0:00:360:00:37

I'm really happy about it.

0:00:370:00:44

and the Bournemouth beach volleyball

players who got the call to

0:00:440:00:49

represent England at the

Commonwealth Games.

0:00:490:00:51

At the meeting, I was like,

Vicks, we've done it.

0:00:510:00:53

We didn't really

believe it at the time.

0:00:530:00:55

Very surreal.

0:00:550:00:56

It still is, really.

0:00:560:01:04

Tonight, questions have been raised

about whether Sussex police

0:01:090:01:13

could have stopped a violent drunk

from murdering a man

0:01:130:01:15

in a row over £40.

0:01:150:01:18

The force is reviewing its handling

of the case, after Duncan Hearsey

0:01:180:01:21

was jailed for a minimum of 21 years

for beating Alan Creasey to death

0:01:210:01:24

in Lancing last year.

0:01:240:01:29

But it's emerged that,

not only had Mr Creasey called 999

0:01:290:01:31

worried for his safety,

but a pub and a kebab shop

0:01:310:01:34

in the town had also called

999 the same evening,

0:01:340:01:37

because of Hearsey's

aggressive behaviour.

0:01:370:01:41

It's

0:01:410:01:41

Sussex Police said it is

"tragically unfortunate"

0:01:410:01:43

they failed to catch him.

0:01:430:01:44

Piers Hopkirk reports.

0:01:440:01:50

Holding his jeans splattered

in blood from the brutal

0:01:500:01:53

assault on his victim,

CCTV shows Duncan Hearsey walking

0:01:530:01:57

around his neighbourhood

in Shoreham, at one point

0:01:570:01:59

shadow-boxing in the street.

0:01:590:02:01

Minutes before, he had

attacked Alan Creasey,

0:02:010:02:03

kicking him to death

after apparently demanding £40

0:02:030:02:05

for a gardening job.

0:02:050:02:11

It's emerged police had received

a series of calls that evening

0:02:110:02:15

from two pubs and a kebab shop

reporting Hearsey's hostility.

0:02:150:02:18

On the night of the fatal

attack on Alan Creasey,

0:02:180:02:23

police were called on three separate

occasions by people concerned over

0:02:230:02:25

Duncan Hearsey's behaviour.

0:02:260:02:28

Then, at 8:15pm, Creasey

himself called police

0:02:280:02:30

after an altercation with Hearsey.

0:02:300:02:34

Police attended, but left at 8:30pm

to pursue leads, advising

0:02:340:02:36

Mr Creasey to lock his doors.

0:02:360:02:41

They returned to Mr Creasey's

home at 9:10pm to find

0:02:410:02:43

him seriously injured.

0:02:430:02:49

CCTV shows how Hearsey had returned

to Mr Creasey's home

0:02:490:02:52

after the police had left,

and kicked him to death.

0:02:520:02:55

Sussex Police is now

carrying out an internal

0:02:550:02:57

investigation into what happened,

and to examine whether

0:02:570:02:59

lessons can be learned.

0:02:590:03:02

We do need to investigate the matter

to see if the police

0:03:020:03:04

have erred in any way,

and as you've mentioned,

0:03:040:03:09

it is a local investigation

so they will be looking to see

0:03:090:03:12

whether we did everything

we could and everything

0:03:120:03:14

reasonable at the time.

0:03:140:03:16

Mr Creasey's neighbours

described him as a troubled man.

0:03:160:03:19

He has been a nuisance

to the neighbourhood in general.

0:03:190:03:23

Everywhere he went,

he created chaos.

0:03:230:03:26

He wasn't a quiet man,

he was a man looking

0:03:260:03:29

for a fight all the time.

0:03:290:03:31

I can't see the police

have got any blame.

0:03:310:03:34

They were trying to do their job.

0:03:340:03:36

They were looking for Duncan.

0:03:360:03:39

They did tell Alan

to lock the doors.

0:03:390:03:41

But Duncan got back in.

0:03:410:03:43

Sad.

0:03:430:03:53

David Simmons is a councillor

in Shoreham and a retired policeman.

0:03:530:03:55

The nature of the call,

the gravity of the call,

0:03:550:04:00

if that was seen as a high priority,

and it clearly was, they will look

0:04:000:04:03

at a time it took police to respond,

and whether the police could have

0:04:030:04:06

done anything more effectively

to prevent this crime

0:04:060:04:08

in the first place.

0:04:080:04:09

Hearsey was jailed for

21 years for murder.

0:04:090:04:11

Detectives described it

as tragically unfortunate

0:04:110:04:13

that he wasn't arrested sooner.

0:04:130:04:14

The force's professional

standards department

0:04:140:04:15

will make its own judgment.

0:04:150:04:16

Piers Hopkirk, BBC South Today.

0:04:160:04:19

Jo Kent spent the day

in Lancing, and we can

0:04:190:04:21

cross live to her now.

0:04:220:04:23

Jo, why is it that

0:04:230:04:24

Sussex Police are carrying

out their own investigation?

0:04:240:04:34

So, they've now referred it back

to Sussex Police's professional

0:04:340:04:37

standards department,

and asked them to carry

0:04:370:04:38

out their own investigation

0:04:380:04:40

into what happened.

0:04:400:04:45

the IPC has looked into the case in

an assessment phase and has decided

0:04:450:04:50

it did not warrant a full

investigation, so it has said to the

0:04:500:04:56

professional standards department to

carry out an internal investigation.

0:04:560:04:59

They will examine the force their

smug response.

0:04:590:05:08

Before coming back with conclusions.

0:05:080:05:09

They'll be looking to see

if anything could or should have

0:05:090:05:11

been done differently

and whether any lessons can be

0:05:110:05:14

learned following what

happened here back in May.

0:05:140:05:16

The jury at the trial of an Army

sergeant, accused of trying

0:05:160:05:18

to murder his wife by tampering

with her parachute,

0:05:180:05:21

has been discharged,

after failing to reach verdicts.

0:05:210:05:23

Emile Cilliers had

denied all charges.

0:05:230:05:25

The Crown Prosecution Service says

it will seek a retrial.

0:05:250:05:28

Helena Lee was at

Winchester Crown Court.

0:05:280:05:33

The seven women and three

men confirmed to the

0:05:330:05:36

court through the jury

0:05:360:05:37

foreman that there was no realistic

prospect, they said, of them

0:05:370:05:41

reaching a unanimous or majority

verdict on any of the three charges

0:05:410:05:46

that the Army sergeant,

Emile Cilliers, was facing

0:05:460:05:48

during this trial.

0:05:480:05:52

Now, the first charge he was facing

what he was accused of

0:05:520:05:55

tampering with a gas fixture

at the family home in 2015.

0:05:550:05:59

The second charge was

linked to that first

0:05:590:06:03

charge, and he was accused

of endangering the lives of two

0:06:030:06:06

children who were in the house

at the time of that gas leak.

0:06:060:06:16

And the third charge

Emile Cilliers was facing was he

0:06:160:06:19

was accused of sabotaging his

wife's parachute in 2015.

0:06:190:06:22

The prosecution has said

that he had hoped his wife

0:06:220:06:24

would fall to her death.

0:06:240:06:25

She fell 4,000 feet to the ground.

0:06:250:06:27

It was a near miracle,

the court heard, that

0:06:270:06:29

she managed to survive

that incident, although

0:06:290:06:31

she did suffer from

multiple injuries.

0:06:310:06:33

Here at Winchester Crown

Court, the jury has

0:06:330:06:39

failed to reach majority or

unanimous verdicts on all of those

0:06:390:06:41

three charges.

0:06:420:06:43

The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney,

thanked the jury, and he

0:06:430:06:45

discharged them earlier

on this afternoon.

0:06:450:06:51

We know also from the CPS

that they are seeking a retrial.

0:06:510:06:54

The judge did say that he hoped

a retrial, if it took place, would

0:06:540:06:59

take place sooner rather than later,

given these alleged offence took

0:06:590:07:02

place in 2015.

0:07:020:07:08

It's been 600 days since

Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe

0:07:100:07:12

was first imprisoned in Iran

accused of spying.

0:07:120:07:15

Today, her husband,

Richard, who's from Fleet,

0:07:150:07:17

told us she's due back in court next

month on a second charge

0:07:170:07:20

of "spreading propaganda".

0:07:210:07:23

In March last year, Nazanin

travelled to Iran for a holiday.

0:07:230:07:26

She took her daughter with her.

0:07:260:07:27

It was a month later,

as Nazanin prepared to fly home,

0:07:270:07:30

that she was arrested

at an airport in Tehran.

0:07:300:07:32

Details of her arrest began

to emerge a few weeks later,

0:07:320:07:35

with claims that she was involved

in plans for regime change

0:07:350:07:37

in Iran.

0:07:370:07:38

In the summer, the Prime

Minister raised concerns

0:07:380:07:40

about a number of cases involving

dual nationals, with the Iranian

0:07:400:07:43

president.

0:07:430:07:45

At the end of the summer,

Nazanin was sentenced to five years

0:07:450:07:48

in prison for allegedly plotting

to topple the Iranian regime.

0:07:480:07:50

An appeal failed.

0:07:500:07:58

This month, Nazanin

found out she could face

0:07:580:08:00

an extra 16 years in jail.

0:08:000:08:01

Meanwhile, the Foreign Secretary

Boris Johnson held talks

0:08:010:08:03

with Mr Radcliffe, and said

he would consider a trip to Iran.

0:08:030:08:06

As her family back in the UK

continue to fight for her release,

0:08:060:08:09

what hope is there for

Nazanin's future?

0:08:090:08:11

David Allard reports.

0:08:110:08:18

It's an anniversary no

one is celebrating.

0:08:180:08:22

600 days since this family was torn

apart, and now another

0:08:220:08:24

worrying development.

0:08:240:08:31

Neither did yesterday was met by the

deputy prosecutor in prison who told

0:08:310:08:37

her in December she will be taken

back to court, he said it would be

0:08:370:08:42

for the charge of raising and

spreading propaganda.

0:08:420:08:45

But, under Iranian law,

0:08:450:08:46

600 days in prison, a third

0:08:460:08:47

of her original sentence,

also makes Nazanin eligible

0:08:470:08:49

for early release.

0:08:490:08:53

She has this application for early

release. We have this news about a

0:08:530:08:57

new court case which gets in the way

of that.

0:08:570:09:00

It's a legal tangle which Richard

0:09:000:09:02

hopes the Foreign Secretary

0:09:020:09:03

Boris Johnson can cut

through with some

0:09:030:09:04

high-level diplomacy.

0:09:040:09:06

What I said to the Government is it

would be great if he could visit

0:09:060:09:15

mezzanine or get to Iran in time for

the court case and hopefully I can

0:09:150:09:18

go with him. It is important for me

that I stand up and whenever she is

0:09:180:09:24

in trouble that I am alongside her.

That is why I want to go there.

0:09:240:09:28

The Foreign Office isn't saying

0:09:280:09:30

anything about a potential visit,

0:09:300:09:31

but others are putting

pressure on Iran.

0:09:310:09:32

This weekend, the actress

Emma Thompson will lead a march

0:09:320:09:35

of Nazanin's supporters in London.

0:09:350:09:37

A letter will be sent

to Iran's supreme leader

0:09:370:09:39

urging him to free her.

0:09:390:09:43

After 600 days, Richard hopes

there won't be many more unwelcome

0:09:430:09:48

anniversaries before he,

Nazanin and their daughter Gabriella

0:09:480:09:50

are finally reunited.

0:09:500:09:51

David Allard, BBC South Today.

0:09:510:09:56

It's the festive truck that rolls

into town every Christmas.

0:09:560:09:58

But it seems not everyone is sharing

the joy with Coca Cola this season.

0:09:580:10:01

The Coke team were in Bournemouth

today handing out cans

0:10:010:10:04

of the soft drink but,

alongside them, was another group

0:10:040:10:06

handing out toothbrushes.

0:10:060:10:07

Steve Humphrey has

been finding out why.

0:10:070:10:17

It is a festive road show promoting

a soft drink. Those arriving for

0:10:190:10:23

some fears and photos were greeted

by campaigners with toothbrushes,

0:10:230:10:28

urging people to consider the impact

on their dental health and

0:10:280:10:32

waistlines.

She doesn't have them, it is only

0:10:320:10:34

me.

We don't drink a lot of it

0:10:340:10:40

ourselves, we agree.

Special occasions. You have chosen

0:10:400:10:44

the zero sugar option.

I would never give full sugar Coke.

0:10:440:10:48

These sustainable food partnership

says the message is clear.

0:10:480:10:54

A lot more people are aware of the

impact of what you eat and drink on

0:10:540:10:59

your health and well-being.

No one from Coca-Cola was available

0:10:590:11:03

for interview. The company said in a

statement this road show is

0:11:030:11:08

pre-Christmas fun and it points out

only small cans of drink are being

0:11:080:11:12

given away and two of the three

drinks choices are sugar free.

0:11:120:11:17

We have a policy not to market our

products to under trials and will

0:11:170:11:22

not be providing drinks to under

trials unless their parent or

0:11:220:11:30

guardian is happy for us to do so.

In a twist, Bournemouth council

0:11:300:11:33

which backs the sustainable food

city polish it told campaigners they

0:11:330:11:35

couldn't give out toothbrushes as

Coca-Cola had booked the space for

0:11:350:11:41

its event.

We are not actively being aggressive

0:11:410:11:44

to Coca-Cola or anyone else, it is

to get a message out there.

0:11:440:11:50

It is disappointing. The council

says the Coca-Cola truck is very

0:11:500:11:54

popular but it says through sports,

recreation and well-being services,

0:11:540:12:00

it is encouraging everyone to

maintain a balanced healthy

0:12:000:12:03

lifestyle over the Christmas

holidays.

0:12:030:12:14

Later, Europe's first majority black

and ethnic minority orchestra

0:12:150:12:18

comes to Southampton,

to share a stage with 270 children.

0:12:180:12:24

I bet you are feeling peckish

looking at that!

0:12:340:12:37

Reading University scientists have

found cooking in fat is helping

0:12:370:12:39

to keep the planet cooler.

0:12:390:12:40

Fatty acids from cooking create

little molecules that end up

0:12:400:12:43

in the atmosphere, and then

have an effect on cloud formation.

0:12:430:12:46

But researchers have dismissed

the idea that cooking fats

0:12:460:12:48

could be used as a way

to reduce global warming.

0:12:480:12:50

Allen Sinclair has been

finding out how more.

0:12:500:12:59

Fish and chips, we love them, and

nearly 400 billion meals are served

0:12:590:13:04

up by the UK's 10,000 chippies each

year. But as if we needed any

0:13:040:13:10

excuse, there could be another

reason to indulge in the nation's

0:13:100:13:14

favourite takeaway.

Chips can prevent global warming.

0:13:140:13:20

New research is underway at wedding

and they have made a discovery, deep

0:13:200:13:25

frying foods sends tiny molecules of

cooking fat into the atmosphere. It

0:13:250:13:31

hangs around hoping they can clouds

and it helps keeps temperatures

0:13:310:13:37

lower.

These molecules in large quantities

0:13:370:13:44

in urban areas make it easier for

clouds to form.

0:13:440:13:47

Clouds have a massive impact

on climate change because clouds

0:13:470:13:49

are generally believed to cool.

0:13:490:13:50

If you have more clouds,

it could potentially

0:13:500:13:52

lead to increased cooling,

so, a lower temperature

0:13:520:13:54

counteracting global warming.

0:13:540:13:57

Here in Redding there is every hope

their new-found eco-status will

0:13:570:14:02

encourage more of us to opt for some

deep-fried delights.

0:14:020:14:10

There's some good news

for coffee drinkers.

0:14:100:14:13

Research published

in the British Medical Journal

0:14:130:14:16

suggests that drinking three to four

mugs of coffee a day,

0:14:160:14:18

compared to drinking none,

is "more likely to benefit your

0:14:180:14:21

health than cause harm".

0:14:210:14:22

The findings come from researchers

at the University of Southampton.

0:14:220:14:24

They say it's linked to a lower

likelihood of developing

0:14:240:14:27

heart problems.

0:14:270:14:33

If you're drinking three or four,

you can carry on as usual.

0:14:330:14:36

What I should mention

is that we are talking

0:14:360:14:38

about healthy coffee.

0:14:380:14:42

This research is about coffee,

it's not about sugar and syrup

0:14:420:14:44

and some of the things we might eat

0:14:440:14:46

at the same time as drinking coffee

which we know aren't necessarily

0:14:460:14:49

good for us, and have standard

health messages around.

0:14:490:14:51

If you're drinking coffee,

enjoy it, try and make it

0:14:510:14:54

healthy.

0:14:540:14:58

There is the advice.

0:14:580:14:59

Children from schools in Southampton

had the chance to make music

0:14:590:15:02

with some of the world's top

classical musicians today.

0:15:020:15:04

Formed two years ago,

Chineke is the first majority

0:15:040:15:07

black and ethnic minority

orchestra in Europe.

0:15:070:15:09

As Briony Leyland reports,

its members are passionate

0:15:090:15:11

about inspiring people of all creeds

and colour to get involved

0:15:110:15:13

in the music they love.

0:15:130:15:23

Professional perfection,

the Chineke Orchestra in action

0:15:260:15:30

at this year's BBC Proms,

showcasing the talent of black

0:15:300:15:32

and minority ethnic musicians

who haven't always been fairly

0:15:320:15:36

represented on the classical scene.

0:15:360:15:42

Chineke comes from the Nigerian

for a guardian spirit

0:15:420:15:44

which creates good things.

0:15:440:15:46

Part of the orchestra's

mission is to take that

0:15:460:15:48

spirit into the community.

0:15:480:15:53

Today's workshop in Southampton

brought together 270 children

0:15:530:15:55

to play alongside Chineke.

0:15:550:16:00

In recent weeks, many have

been getting to grips

0:16:000:16:02

with instruments for the first time.

0:16:020:16:05

Can everyone point to someone

standing up here playing the same

0:16:050:16:11

instrument?

Loads of clarinets.

0:16:110:16:13

Trumpets? Anyone got a trumpet?

The thing I love is the music, it

0:16:130:16:20

lighters your heart, you feel really

good even if you have had a stressed

0:16:200:16:24

day at school which you always have.

What is it like seeing those

0:16:240:16:30

professional musicians on stage?

I am really happy, this is the first

0:16:300:16:33

time I have seen them playing and

altogether, I am really happy about

0:16:330:16:37

it.

0:16:370:16:38

The members of Chineke,

very happy to provide

0:16:450:16:47

the role models for the next

generation of musicians.

0:16:470:16:52

It is important classical music can

reach out to all types of community

0:16:520:16:56

and by bringing an orchestra of

people who are black and Hispanic

0:16:560:17:00

and Indian descent, it is going to

be easier to access those

0:17:000:17:06

communities, ethnic communities.

If we show it is possible for

0:17:060:17:12

everyone, any creed and colour to do

it, there might be more incentive

0:17:120:17:15

for people.

0:17:150:17:19

Today's event was organised

by the publicly-funded Southampton

0:17:190:17:21

Music Hub which is offering

pupils follow-up lessons

0:17:210:17:24

to build on the happy

0:17:240:17:25

sounds of new beginnings.

0:17:250:17:32

Those children had fun.

0:17:320:17:33

Looks like the children had a great

time at today's workshop.

0:17:330:17:36

Well, tonight, the full Chineke

orchestra is performing

0:17:360:17:38

at the Turner Sims Concert

Hall in Southampton.

0:17:380:17:40

Briony Leyland is there

with the founder member

0:17:400:17:42

of what is an inspirational

group of musicians.

0:17:420:17:45

The stage is set for the concert

tonight, most of the musicians have

0:17:450:17:49

nipped off for a bite to eat but not

our bassist, the founder member.

0:17:490:17:56

Why is the orchestra needed?

The

classical music industry looks like

0:17:560:18:04

the last bastion of the arts which

is underrepresented by our

0:18:040:18:08

community. In towns and in cities,

like with any industry, the greater

0:18:080:18:20

diversity there is, it just adds

more to the mix.

0:18:200:18:24

I want to be in a profession that

truly represents the community I

0:18:240:18:28

live in.

It is not just who plays in your

0:18:280:18:32

orchestra but what you play?

Here, we have up to 40 nationalities

0:18:320:18:39

now. It is not interesting for me to

put an interesting arrangement of

0:18:390:18:47

every shade of brown on stage but it

is so important from the back of the

0:18:470:18:51

stage to the front is represented,

including the music.

0:18:510:18:55

Every single concert we will play a

piece music written by a range of

0:18:550:19:00

composers.

There are some tickets still

0:19:000:19:06

available, the concert begins at

eight o'clock.

0:19:060:19:10

Thank you. Sorry we lost a little

bit of a sound at the beginning.

0:19:100:19:14

The orchestra is on tour. You may

see them somewhere else. Fabulous.

0:19:140:19:18

Time now for the sport.

0:19:180:19:19

Tony Husband is here.

0:19:190:19:23

The build-up to the Ashes and a

solid start.

0:19:230:19:26

A pretty good start. This is the

second day. We were at Hampshire

0:19:260:19:35

last night and the Catrin, James

Vincent, nearly wrote his name in

0:19:350:19:41

the record books. His first big

innings in Test cricket, nearly a

0:19:410:19:48

century.

0:19:480:19:49

Vince found himself at the crease

inside the first half-hour

0:19:490:19:51

of the Ashes series at the Gabba,

and he took his opportunity.

0:19:510:19:54

The 26-year-old Hampshire skipper

faced 170 deliveries, as he dug

0:19:540:19:57

in for a first Test

50 of his career,

0:19:570:19:59

scoring 12 boundaries.

0:19:590:20:00

He was dropped in the 60s.

0:20:000:20:01

But then, with a memorable

century in sight,

0:20:010:20:03

he was brilliantly run out

by Nathan Lyon for 83.

0:20:030:20:06

England finished the day on 196-4.

0:20:060:20:12

It was good.

0:20:120:20:16

I think the anthem is a nice

start to the day, it gets

0:20:160:20:19

shivers going down the spine.

0:20:190:20:21

I was out there pretty early,

so I didn't have too much to

0:20:210:20:24

think about.

0:20:240:20:25

The support from the

Barmy Army was amazing.

0:20:250:20:27

You try to take a

0:20:270:20:28

bit of it in while you are batting,

but maintain focus at the same time.

0:20:280:20:35

Lots of people watching and

listening.

0:20:350:20:37

Last night, Kris Temple was settling

down for a night under the covers,

0:20:370:20:40

watching the cricket, as Hampshire

staged a special screening

0:20:400:20:43

of the first day's play.

0:20:430:20:44

It was a long night,

as play started at the Gabba

0:20:440:20:46

at midnight our time,

0:20:470:20:48

but they had a comfortable view,

and were entertained by former

0:20:480:20:50

England internationals Nick Knight

and Marcus Trescothick.

0:20:500:20:52

Kris didn't last the first session.

0:20:520:20:59

We can carry on if you like!

0:20:590:21:01

Congratulations tonight

to both beach volleyball

0:21:010:21:03

pairings based in our region,

after Commonwealth Games England

0:21:030:21:05

confirmed the selections

of Bournemouth-based Jake Scheaf

0:21:050:21:07

and Chris Gregory in the men's event

at the Gold Coast next year.

0:21:070:21:10

It'll be the first time the sport

features in a Games.

0:21:100:21:12

There was also good news

for Bournemouth's Victoria Palmer

0:21:120:21:15

and Worthing's Jess Grimson.

0:21:150:21:16

They're on the way too,

and I went to meet them

0:21:160:21:18

on a sunny day in Boscombe.

0:21:180:21:25

It's not always as glorious

as this when Jess Grimson

0:21:250:21:29

and Victoria Palmer train,

but it seemed fitting this was one

0:21:290:21:33

of their first full sessions

on Boscombe Beach since discovering

0:21:330:21:35

they were going to the Commonwealth

Games.

0:21:350:21:37

The news came while they

were competing in China.

0:21:370:21:39

We were literally

bouncing around the room.

0:21:390:21:43

We found out, and it

all depended on points.

0:21:430:21:46

For us, that night,

we didn't have any sleep.

0:21:460:21:48

We didn't believe it.

0:21:480:21:52

We had to check about ten

times, can this be?

0:21:520:21:55

We had to wait for the next day

to officially find out.

0:21:550:22:01

Even on the day, we got to

the meeting, Vicks, we've done it.

0:22:010:22:04

We didn't believe it at the time.

0:22:040:22:06

Very surreal.

0:22:060:22:11

Training here on Boscombe Beach

on a sunny morning is one part

0:22:110:22:13

of Vicky and Jess's lifestyle.

0:22:130:22:16

They are unfunded which means

they have to raise all the money

0:22:160:22:18

they can find for competition.

0:22:190:22:20

After training,

they are off to work.

0:22:200:22:24

I am a Dorset Police

community support officer.

0:22:240:22:27

So, I go around in communities

and help them out

0:22:270:22:30

with lower level crime.

0:22:300:22:34

At the weekends, we are here

training three times a day trying

0:22:340:22:36

to get as much as we can

in when our coach comes down.

0:22:360:22:40

We have to be really

dedicated to make it work.

0:22:400:22:43

We never had funding,

and so it is not like we feel

0:22:430:22:46

disgruntled because it

was taken away.

0:22:460:22:48

We have always self-funded.

0:22:480:22:49

If we got funding,

it would be amazing.

0:22:490:22:53

Jess doubles up with work

as a sports therapist.

0:22:530:22:57

Despite splitting their time,

they have forced themselves

0:22:570:22:59

into the world top 50 in 2017.

0:22:590:23:01

And now the pair have their

sights set a lot higher

0:23:010:23:03

at the Games next April.

0:23:030:23:06

We've come up against most

of the teams we will be playing.

0:23:060:23:10

It is a case of getting the real

hard work in to give ourselves that

0:23:100:23:14

opportunity to get that medal.

0:23:140:23:15

Already making history

by representing England in beach

0:23:150:23:17

volleyball in a Commonwealth Games.

0:23:170:23:18

Their ambitions don't end there.

0:23:180:23:26

Good luck to them.

0:23:260:23:28

Now, it's time to

talk pints and paws,

0:23:280:23:30

as we reveal the Berkshire pub that

has been voted Britain's

0:23:300:23:33

most dog-friendly pub.

0:23:330:23:34

The Fox And Hounds in Theale

has regular visits from

0:23:340:23:36

four-legged punters,

0:23:360:23:37

and it seems they're

more than welcome.

0:23:370:23:39

One of the regulars

is Rodney the dog.

0:23:390:23:41

I truly believe that a dog

is part of your family,

0:23:580:24:00

and we are very family-orientated.

0:24:000:24:06

We feature a woofer

of the week on Facebook.

0:24:060:24:09

And, at the moment,

we have just met a St

0:24:090:24:12

Bernard puppy who is to die for.

0:24:120:24:15

He's only 11 weeks old.

0:24:150:24:16

Seriously melt your heart.

0:24:160:24:19

They definitely get

loads of cuddles and

0:24:190:24:20

lots of attention.

0:24:210:24:24

We also do dog treats that

are free to have on the bar.

0:24:240:24:27

Dog beds, dog towels.

0:24:280:24:29

And we do have doggy ice cream.

0:24:290:24:31

So, we are perfect for

every aspect of a dog

0:24:310:24:33

experience.

0:24:330:24:38

If you don't have a dog,

you can borrow Rodney, he's fine.

0:24:380:24:41

BARKING.

0:24:410:24:42

I think I'm a little bit quirky.

0:24:420:24:48

If you have a doggie, get down

there. If you haven't, get down

0:24:480:24:53

there. If you are a doggie, get down

there!

0:24:530:24:55

Time now for the weather.

0:24:550:25:01

Wintry showers, maybe snow on the

way.

0:25:010:25:04

Jeff Daish photographed

the Kelvin Helmholtz clouds over

0:25:040:25:06

Woodley in Berkshire,

which occur when there

0:25:060:25:07

is a strong vertical

0:25:070:25:08

shear between two air streams,

causing winds to blow faster

0:25:080:25:11

at the upper level than

at the lower levels.

0:25:110:25:15

A simpler one here.

0:25:150:25:17

Martin Dolan photographed the cloudy

0:25:170:25:18

skies at Sandbanks this morning.

0:25:180:25:19

And Colin Lennox-Gordon took this

picture of the blue skies

0:25:190:25:21

We had some lovely, sunny conditions

today but it is all change. We are

0:25:250:25:30

seeing a band of rain from the

south. Not everyone will see rain.

0:25:300:25:34

It will be chilly with the lowest

temperatures in the first part of

0:25:340:25:40

the night.

North of this, you won't see much

0:25:400:25:45

rain. Elsewhere, heavy bursts which

will clear in the morning. A low of

0:25:450:25:51

four Celsius.

Tomorrow, the risk of a shower along

0:25:510:25:57

the south coast and Isle of Wight.

Elsewhere, decent amount of

0:25:570:26:02

sunshine. Lighter winds band today.

Temperatures reaching 10 Celsius.

0:26:020:26:08

Feeling more pleasant with lighter

winds in sheltered spots.

0:26:080:26:12

A lovely day tomorrow but tomorrow

night the skies were clear and the

0:26:120:26:17

risk of a wintry shower. There may

be a dusting of snow over the

0:26:170:26:24

Chilterns, Cotswolds and downs.

Elsewhere, a widespread frost. The

0:26:240:26:30

chance of ice on untreated surfaces

on Saturday morning.

0:26:300:26:34

A mainly dry day on Saturday but a

slim chance of the odd isolated

0:26:340:26:39

wintry shower. A dusting here and

there. Mainly dry, plenty of

0:26:390:26:47

sunshine, the winds increasing. A

high of just seven Celsius in the

0:26:470:26:54

day.

In the weekend, some sunny spells

0:26:540:26:58

and wintry showers, a northerly wind

and frosty nights on Saturday. The

0:26:580:27:05

winds will pick up on Sunday which

will prevent a frost.

0:27:050:27:09

A good deal of cloud tomorrow. It

will brighten, a sunny day. Stronger

0:27:090:27:19

winds on Saturday, bitterly cold,

just seven. A shower risk over the

0:27:190:27:24

weekend. Rain on Monday.

0:27:240:27:25

That is getting colder. That's all

from us. Chris was a bit of a

0:27:270:27:36

lightweight not staying up for the

cricket.

0:27:360:27:40

Ayew staying up? Yes. Headphones at

the ready.

0:27:400:27:43

There'll be a news summary at 8pm.

0:27:430:27:44

And we'll be back at 10.30pm.

0:27:440:27:46

Have a good evening.
