Hello and welcome to South Today, I'm Jo Kent.

:00:00.:00:00.

Another day - another strike on Southern Rail -

:00:00.:00:00.

now the company tells the union - we'll see you in court.

:00:07.:00:13.

Bedtime battles - behind the scenes at the special clinic treating

:00:14.:00:16.

And tomorrow the chance of some snow. The details shortly.

:00:17.:00:34.

The owner of Southern rail says it will take the drivers union Aslef

:00:35.:00:37.

to the Supreme Court over its industrial action.

:00:38.:00:39.

A second day of drivers strikes draws to a close tonight but there's

:00:40.:00:42.

another walkout planned for Friday with almost all 2,200 services

:00:43.:00:45.

But the union says its concerns are over passenger safety.

:00:46.:00:49.

What do we know about the court case?

:00:50.:00:59.

Southern's owner Govia Thameslink Railway believes it has a case

:01:00.:01:01.

And that's why it's prepared to continue its legal claim

:01:02.:01:05.

despite losing a court case and an appeal last year.

:01:06.:01:08.

Southern wants to replace conductors with 'on board supervisors'.

:01:09.:01:10.

The trains would become Driver Only Operated

:01:11.:01:12.

meaning the drivers open and close the doors.

:01:13.:01:17.

DOO is already in use on three quarters of Southern Trains.

:01:18.:01:20.

But the general secretary of Aslef explained why the union

:01:21.:01:22.

wasn't opposed then - but is now.

:01:23.:01:37.

When it was short trains and the creased football it was little sleep

different railway. With longer trains, with nobody doing the

:01:44.:01:49.

critical role, it is unsafe. Are we likely to see them around

:01:50.:01:51.

the negotiating table this week? The unions and Southern say

:01:52.:01:54.

nothing is planned - but both sides say they're

:01:55.:01:56.

open to talks. However both also say

:01:57.:01:58.

they won't back down. This we are looking for talks with

:01:59.:02:10.

the union, setting around the table for a sensible conversation were

:02:11.:02:13.

both sides listen to each other and really understand the concerns. The

:02:14.:02:18.

unions say it is concern for safety but last week the railways

:02:19.:02:24.

Inspectorate said the way we are operating is perfectly safe and it

is a safe method of operation. Darren Ball travels

into line with comparable councils and includes

stay awake for this - Figures show in the year

:03:52.:03:54.

leading up to August 2013 - sleep disorders accounted for more

You might not have heard of them but sleep fairies are everywhere.

I just want to say well done for good sleeping.

Cathy has suggested Imogen should have happened sleep very.

The last couple of weeks have been great so we're doing really well.

Onto football, and a big night for Southampton at St Mary's

:07:04.:07:10.

in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi final against Liverpool.

:07:11.:07:13.

Saints won the match 1-0, but with a second leg to come

:07:14.:07:16.

at Anfield, they still have plenty of work to do.

:07:17.:07:18.

Kris Temple is at St Mary's - Kris, it sounds harsh -

:07:19.:07:21.

With a home advantage they had to have something to take to Anfield.

:07:22.:07:41.

They won 1-0 as you say but had the chance to win by more, even by four

:07:42.:07:45.

if they were being clinical. Saints took the lead against the run

:07:46.:07:49.

to a chance, and a goal And just before half time Tadic

the same in a fortnight's time. Should have had more than one but

they should have had more than one as well. Amazing, I am Brazilian

:08:35.:08:39.

The first half was fantastic in the second half I enjoyed a lot. We had

a draw at the weekend and got a win, a draw at the weekend and got a win,

:08:43.:08:49.

come on, you read six the one thing it did tonight was restore some

:08:50.:08:56.

positivity. It has been a bit of a rotten run for the team but with the

carrot of a possible trip to Wembley to come, and don't forget Saints

be made up for. They go to Anfield in a good position and we will be

:09:10.:09:14.

following them all the way to Merseyside.

:09:15.:09:14.

That's all from the South Today news team this evening.

:09:15.:09:16.

We're back tomorrow with bulletins in BBC Breakfast and there's more

:09:17.:09:19.

The potential for some snow in some parts tomorrow. Overnight it will be

:09:20.:09:35.

mainly dry but a key north-easterly wind will make it feel a lot colder.

:09:36.:09:39.

In sheltered spots we may have little bit of a frost, the

:09:40.:09:44.

temperature falling to around freezing, this is the temperature in

:09:45.:09:47.

our towns and cities. A dry and bright start with the cloud

:09:48.:09:50.

increasing quickly through the morning and the Met office have

:09:51.:09:53.

issued a yellow Snow warning through the course of the day. The risk of

:09:54.:09:59.

heavy snow which may lead to ice tomorrow night so stay tuned to your

:10:00.:10:02.

local BBC radio station. Through the course of tomorrow morning the rain

:10:03.:10:07.

arrives and the temperature arrives with the rain's arrival but the

:10:08.:10:11.

northerly wind will settle in the coming rain to snow in some places

:10:12.:10:14.

and the rain will be very intense with it is not following Arsenal, so

:10:15.:10:21.

torrential downpours leading to an inch of rain and around an hour with

:10:22.:10:24.

the chance of some snowfall likely for northern parts and we're not out

:10:25.:10:28.

of the woods until Friday morning when there is the risk also of some

:10:29.:10:32.

snowfall moving down to the south of the country, for parts of West

:10:33.:10:36.

Sussex and eastern parts of Hampshire and Berkshire. The

:10:37.:10:40.

northerly winds will begin today the later part of Friday and ice will be

:10:41.:10:44.

a big issue both tomorrow night and through Friday daytime. The snowfall

:10:45.:10:51.

falling on frozen ground. Some snowfall tomorrow, a risk

:10:52.:10:59.

particularly tomorrow evening when the temperature plunges.

:11:00.:11:00.

start to the weekend. Time for the national weather prospects if you

:11:01.:11:03.

are on the move. Good evening, a lot going on with

:11:04.:11:12.

the weather in the next few days, numerous weather warnings in for so

buried in mind if you have travel plans. Lots of isobars on the chart

overnight which means it will be windy for all. The strongest winds

:11:20.:11:22.

in Scotland, lots of wintry showers with snow getting down to

:11:23.:11:25.

increasingly low levels and some wintry showers in Northern Ireland

:11:26.:11:29.

and northern England. A cold night for Northern England, particularly

:11:30.:11:32.

in more rural spots, frosty and I see for some and some of the snow

:11:33.:11:38.

really blowing around over higher ground in Scotland. Strong wind and

:11:39.:11:40.

further snow to take us into tomorrow. It may well make for some

:11:41.:11:44.

tricky travelling conditions. The forecast for tomorrow in the

:11:45.:11:46.

southern half of the UK's quite tricky. We have got mild air bumping

:11:47.:11:51.

into colder air. The boundary between the two,
