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

:00:00.:00:00.

The top stories tonight: Killed by a hit-and-run drunk driver.

:00:00.:00:07.

As the government reviews sentencing, his parents call

:00:08.:00:10.

Four children taken to hospital after cocaine

:00:11.:00:16.

There was concern they mistook it for sherbert.

:00:17.:00:20.

And Saints hang on by their fingertips to

:00:21.:00:22.

Southampton's footballers made history tonight.

:00:23.:00:37.

They reached their first major Wembley final for 38 years

:00:38.:00:40.

by beating Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield against all the odds.

:00:41.:00:43.

Their 2-0 aggregate win means they're the first team ever to reach

:00:44.:00:46.

Kris Temple is at Anfield for us tonight.

:00:47.:00:50.

Kris, a fantastic night for Saints, the club and the fans.

:00:51.:00:59.

Very much so. A momentous night here at Anfield for the 3500 fans packed

:01:00.:01:11.

into the Anfield Road and behind me, that was where all the drama

:01:12.:01:14.

happened. Lots of chances at both happened. Lots of chances at both

ends but Saints maintained the record of having not conceded in yet

:01:19.:01:23.

cup competition to make their first League Cup final since 1979.

:01:24.:01:26.

As often happens at Anfield, Saints came under intense pressure

:01:27.:01:30.

Then Nathan Redmond create the best two chances of the first half.

:01:31.:01:35.

Dusan Tadic couldn't take advantage of the first.

:01:36.:01:39.

The second, three minutes later, was perhaps even better.

:01:40.:01:42.

This time, James Davis couldn't finish, much to Saints' frustration.

:01:43.:01:48.

In the second half, Fraser Forster made a real hash of a 52nd-minute

:01:49.:01:52.

shot then saved his own bacon with an astonishing stop.

:01:53.:01:58.

After that, Saints' goal led a charmed life until injury time

:01:59.:02:02.

when young substitute Josh Sims broke clear to tee up Shane Long,

:02:03.:02:07.

3500 supporters making the long journey from the south coast. Most

:02:08.:02:26.

of those will be first in the queue for the tickets for the Wembley

:02:27.:02:33.

final when they go on sale. Absolutely brilliant. I and Bob

:02:34.:02:40.

gobsmacked. Shane Long, Magic. They were defending really deep. Wembley!

:02:41.:02:48.

When Shane Long went through, it was brilliant. Absolutely amazing. We

:02:49.:02:56.

are going to Wembley! We will win the cup! Let's go! The EFL Cup is

back to the south coast the mood. A couple from Hampshire whose son

:03:19.:03:22.

was killed by a drunk driver say a consultation about tougher

:03:23.:03:25.

penalties doesn't go far enough. 28-year-old Wayne Moores

that were wrong. Wayne Moores' parents

:04:02.:04:04.

remember their son, In September 2010, he was travelling

:04:05.:04:06.

home to Hampshire on his motorbike when he was struck by a drunk driver

:04:07.:04:13.

who fled the scene. Nothing can prepare parents

:04:14.:04:17.

for seeing their child Every day, that vision

:04:18.:04:21.

comes into my mind. The driver, Donna Hackett,

:04:22.:04:36.

was given a six-year sentence for causing death by careless

:04:37.:04:42.

driving while under Wayne's parents feel the current

:04:43.:04:44.

wording of charges and the penalties given don't reflect the seriousness

:04:45.:04:51.

of road deaths. What message does it

:04:52.:04:54.

give to the criminal? "Oh, don't worry, you're

just a bit careless. The Government's consulting

on whether the maximum sentence for such crimes should be increased

attitudes and save lives. Next some developing news tonight

:06:02.:06:06.

and South Today has been told that plans to devolve greater powers

:06:07.:06:16.

from Westminster to councils along the Solent are

:06:17.:06:18.

now dead in the water. The idea had been to give councils

:06:19.:06:20.

more control over transport, housing and infrastructure along

:06:21.:06:23.

with extra funding. Our political editor,

:06:24.:06:24.

Peter Henley, told me earlier how the controversial idea finally

:06:25.:06:27.

hit the buffers. There was a crunch

:06:28.:06:30.

meeting this afternoon. It was all the MPs at Westminster

:06:31.:06:31.

and a lot of the council leaders. It was intended to try

:06:32.:06:35.

and find a way forward. With the Isle of Wight having

:06:36.:06:37.

changed from independent control to Conservative control

:06:38.:06:40.

and the Conservatives saying they wanted nothing to do

:06:41.:06:41.

with Portsmouth and Southampton, it seemed clear, I am told by MPs,

:06:42.:06:44.

that there was no way forward. Now the council leaders are saying

:06:45.:06:49.

it's dead in the water. ?1 billion of government money has

:06:50.:06:52.

gone away and it will be some time before they find a way of trying

:06:53.:06:56.

to get that back again. The councils will have

:06:57.:06:59.

to think about mergers. This is what's happening Dorset -

:07:00.:07:04.

they're talking about There's a meeting tomorrow

:07:05.:07:06.

to get down that road. It's happening in

:07:07.:07:10.

Oxfordshire as well. Reorganising local government

:07:11.:07:12.

structure, rather than taking existing councils, electing a mayor

:07:13.:07:16.

and making a super authority. These things may sound

:07:17.:07:21.

technical but, in the end, it's about setting the course

:07:22.:07:23.

forward for the next decade. And all the potential money

:07:24.:07:28.

for social care in particular that could have come with this,

:07:29.:07:32.

it looks like that won't happen - they're going to have to go back

:07:33.:07:35.

to the drawing board and find I'm told there was will in the room

:07:36.:07:38.

for some kind of combined transport authority for Hampshire but that's

:07:39.:07:43.

very different to a devolution deal. A school in Poole has written

:07:44.:07:52.

to all its parents after four children came into contact

:07:53.:07:55.

with cocaine on the school premises. One child was found

:07:56.:07:57.

in possession of the drug at Broadstone Middle School

:07:58.:07:59.

and the teachers say the children Anjana Gadgil has been

:08:00.:08:02.

at the school today and earlier It happened on the 3rd

:08:03.:08:05.

of January, the first day back The schools say they found a child

:08:06.:08:09.

with three other children in possession of an unknown

:08:10.:08:13.

substance, a white powder The school says the children

:08:14.:08:16.

believed it to be sweet, They phoned Dorset Police

:08:17.:08:21.

and South West Ambulance who came here and treated the children

:08:22.:08:26.

at the scene and then took them They established that the children

:08:27.:08:29.

hadn't ingested any of the drug, they were all fine and they were

:08:30.:08:34.

discharged on the day. This school here has around 500

:08:35.:08:37.

pupils aged between nine and 13. We don't know the ages or the

:08:38.:08:42.

genders of the children involved. I was here as school ended today,

:08:43.:08:46.

speaking to parents. Some say the school had told them

:08:47.:08:48.

not to speak to us but I did manage I'll make an appointment

:08:49.:08:54.

with the head and speak to her and, until I hear the facts

:08:55.:09:01.

from the different people, They've reacted quite well

:09:02.:09:06.

to it, the headteacher. Do you feel the parents have been

:09:07.:09:13.

given enough information We've been kept

:09:14.:09:16.

informed, that's fine. Has the school had anything

:09:17.:09:20.

else to say about it? The school says it's written

:09:21.:09:23.

to all parents and carers and reassured them that it was dealt

:09:24.:09:25.

with swiftly and it was The police have confirmed

:09:26.:09:28.

that it was cocaine and have arrested a 32-year-old man

:09:29.:09:33.

from Bournemouth on suspicion of drug offences and he's been

:09:34.:09:36.

bailed pending further inquiries. That's all from the South Today

:09:37.:09:45.

news team this evening. Here with our regional

:09:46.:09:47.

weather forecast. Freezing temperatures overnight and

:09:48.:09:56.

a widespread frost but a good deal of cloud, less in the way of fog and

:09:57.:10:01.

more in the way of cloud. Temperatures in the countryside will

:10:02.:10:07.

dip to -2 minus three Celsius. A cold and frosty start to the day

:10:08.:10:11.

tomorrow, quite a lot of cloud first thing but given the strength of the

:10:12.:10:14.

breeze, that should break up the cloud cover. Further north of

:10:15.:10:20.

Berkshire, more cloud during the course of the day into the

:10:21.:10:23.

afternoon. Temperatures tomorrow will reach a high of three or four

:10:24.:10:28.

Celsius. But that icy cold wind coming in from the near continent,

:10:29.:10:31.

temperatures will feel more like freezing. Through the cause of

:10:32.:10:37.

tomorrow night, the possibility of the frost. Through Friday, a frosty

:10:38.:10:44.

start in places. Outbreaks are patchy rain. The winds will be brisk

:10:45.:10:50.

from the south. On Friday night, more persistent rain arriving into

:10:51.:10:54.

the early hours of Saturday morning. A widespread frost tomorrow, cloudy

start, but an icy cold wind coming in from Europe.

:11:00.:10:59.

take a look at the Outlook towards the weekend.

:11:00.:11:07.

Good evening. If you think it was cold today, for many it will be

:11:08.:11:13.

colder still tomorrow. Cold even when we have the sunshine today.

:11:14.:11:17.

This was one of the wonderful weather watcher pictures we had sent

:11:18.:11:20.

in from Cornwall. It contrasts with a cloudy and foggy eastern half of

:11:21.:11:26.

the country, and a bank of cloud. Still foggy, but it is starting to

:11:27.:11:30.

lift. It is being pushed north and west, this bank of cloud. That will

:11:31.:11:33.

continue through the night. We will still have some fog sitting on the

:11:34.:11:38.

hills. Even with the cloud, it will be a cold night, with temperatures

:11:39.:11:43.

away from the far north and west falling to freezing. In the

:11:44.:11:46.

countryside, well below freezing.
