Theresa May visits one of the South's last

:00:00.:00:16.

Labour constituencies in a Tory charm-offensive.

:00:17.:00:19.

An inconvenient truth - millionaire homes everywhere

:00:20.:00:21.

And sailing into view - the largest ship to ever visit

:00:22.:00:28.

It's one of the last patches of red in the south of England.

:00:29.:00:49.

But Theresa May wants to turn it blue.

:00:50.:00:51.

And today the Prime Minister came to the Labour constituency

:00:52.:00:54.

The seat has been held by Labour's Alan Whitehead since 1997.

:00:55.:00:57.

He currently has a majority of a little less than 4,000.

:00:58.:01:00.

It's number 44 on the list of target seats the Conservatives

:01:01.:01:03.

Our political editor, Peter Henley, attempted to catch up with Mrs May

:01:04.:01:10.

A knock at the door and look who is here, the Prime Minister.

:01:11.:01:15.

Theresa May did not spend long in Warwick Road.

:01:16.:01:19.

And mostly talked to loyal Conservatives.

:01:20.:01:22.

But she kept a promise she had made at Prime Minister's Questions.

:01:23.:01:26.

She will find those schools in despair...

:01:27.:01:30.

Southampton Labour MP Alan Whitehead challenged her to visit a school

:01:31.:01:34.

where parents had volunteered to clean toilets to save money.

:01:35.:01:37.

It is perfectly possible I might find myself in Southampton.

:01:38.:01:44.

At some houses, she went in for a chat but didn't stop long.

:01:45.:01:47.

The Prime Minister is talking to people

:01:48.:01:50.

She doesn't want to talk to us, she says today is not

:01:51.:01:56.

the day for interviews with the regional press.

:01:57.:01:59.

There has been criticism of the Conservative campaign for not

:02:00.:02:01.

You never know what is going to happen in Warwick Road.

:02:02.:02:12.

As genuine as you can be in front of the cameras.

:02:13.:02:14.

A long way to drive for ten minutes' chat.

:02:15.:02:24.

The visit was carefully stage-managed, limited to one street

:02:25.:02:26.

in Southampton with access to the Conservative leader

:02:27.:02:28.

But we sent our own cameras out after the event to get

:02:29.:02:34.

reaction to the visit on Warwick Road, in Shirley.

:02:35.:02:37.

It was clear not everyone wanted to chat to the Prime Minister

:02:38.:02:43.

David Bryan filmed Theresa May inside knocking at his front

:02:44.:02:50.

But as he said on Twitter, he was too scared to answer.

:02:51.:02:54.

She asked if we would be supporting her, which obviously we will.

:02:55.:03:04.

And mentioned some of the things which are of interest to us such

:03:05.:03:07.

as supporting small business, looking after landlords.

:03:08.:03:09.

And you are welcome to as well, to meet my father who wasn't able

:03:10.:03:16.

He has always voted Conservative and after this visit,

:03:17.:03:22.

She is a wonderful lady and we had a nice little chat.

:03:23.:03:31.

We have had the Speaker of the House come here

:03:32.:03:34.

before in this road, Dr Horace King, years ago.

:03:35.:03:37.

But the first time for a Prime Minister.

:03:38.:03:39.

This street was carefully selected, but in different parts

:03:40.:03:44.

of the constituency, there may be different views.

:03:45.:03:46.

And even here the Prime Minister had questions to answer.

:03:47.:03:49.

There seems to be no access to speak to her.

:03:50.:03:51.

There's lots of questions, things I'd like to discuss with her.

:03:52.:03:54.

No. Why is that?

:03:55.:03:58.

Because I fundamentally do not agree with Conservative policy.

:03:59.:04:02.

Well, the Prime Minister said was probable she would visit

:04:03.:04:06.

Southampton and she did today, spending just under 30 minutes

:04:07.:04:09.

door knocking on houses here in Warwick Road on the city.

:04:10.:04:13.

Historically, this constituency has been Labour for the past 20 years.

:04:14.:04:17.

Theresa May's visit shows that she wants to change it

:04:18.:04:20.

from red to blue in next month's general election.

:04:21.:04:22.

And following on from South Today earlier this evening,

:04:23.:04:31.

we would like to make it clear that pooled pictures and interviews

:04:32.:04:34.

about political visits are arranged between broadcasters

:04:35.:04:35.

There's been a fifth arrest in the investigation into the murder

:04:36.:04:41.

Mr Hedger was killed on April 30th at his home in Ringwood.

:04:42.:04:49.

He died as a consequence of gunshot wounds.

:04:50.:04:52.

A 45-year-old man from Poole has been arrested

:04:53.:04:54.

on suspicion of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary.

:04:55.:04:59.

Three other men have been charged with murder and a woman has been

:05:00.:05:02.

A man who takes toys to children in Syria spoke

:05:03.:05:07.

to volunteers and charity workers tonight in Portsmouth.

:05:08.:05:13.

Rami Adham, also known as the Toy Smuggler, carries dolls,

:05:14.:05:15.

puppets and teddy bears across the Syrian border

:05:16.:05:18.

The event was hosted by the charity Don't Hate Donate which raises money

:05:19.:05:23.

for supplies to help people in Syria.

:05:24.:05:25.

It was my first trip, 2012, when I...

:05:26.:05:29.

After I had done my humanitarian aid delivery, I took out these toys,

:05:30.:05:34.

And I have never done anything in my life that has brought me more

:05:35.:05:42.

joy than having these moments and giving these toys to these kids.

:05:43.:05:47.

There is still death and suffering on a daily basis,

:05:48.:05:49.

so it is really important that even when the media goes quiet and it

:05:50.:05:54.

seems that the people in Syria are having a break,

:05:55.:05:56.

that we realise, no, people are still completely,

:05:57.:05:59.

100% reliant on the food and medical aid that we provide.

:06:00.:06:05.

With its blue flag beach, luxury homes and stunning views,

:06:06.:06:09.

Sandbanks is often seen as the jewel in the crown of the south coast.

:06:10.:06:12.

But it risks losing that reputation after the council closed public

:06:13.:06:15.

toilets used by people taking the the ferry across Poole Harbour.

:06:16.:06:21.

Residents say some people are now relieving themselves in gardens.

:06:22.:06:25.

I wanted to use the loo just before I get on the ferry

:06:26.:06:32.

because on the other side, we've got a long walk.

:06:33.:06:35.

But the toilets seem to be currently unavailable.

:06:36.:06:38.

Well, last month, this toilet block was closed

:06:39.:06:40.

The nearest public loos now are half-a-mile back up the road.

:06:41.:06:46.

The closure has also had an unpleasant knock-on

:06:47.:06:48.

for the people who live in this exclusive enclave.

:06:49.:06:51.

We get people coming in and urinating in our garden.

:06:52.:06:55.

And also in Midway Path, which leads to the sea opposite.

:06:56.:06:58.

The council press office sent us this statement.

:06:59.:07:28.

But that will take time, and as many people told me,

:07:29.:07:30.

David Allard, BBC South Today, Sandbanks.

:07:31.:07:42.

It's the biggest container ship to ever dock in the UK.

:07:43.:07:45.

One of the largest ships in the world.

:07:46.:07:47.

The MOL Triumph arrived in Southampton this afternoon.

:07:48.:07:49.

If you laid every container on the vessel, end to end,

:07:50.:07:52.

they would stretch from the South Coast to London.

:07:53.:07:54.

Let's talk to James Ingham, who's in Marchwood.

:07:55.:08:02.

Yes, we have got a really great view of the ship from just across

:08:03.:08:07.

Southampton Water. It is an impressive sight. The MOL Triumph is

:08:08.:08:11.

400 metres long, nearly 60 metres wide. Let me step aside for one

:08:12.:08:17.

moment while you look at some of those 20,000 containers being

:08:18.:08:21.

unloaded here. They have come across from Asia on this, her first trip to

:08:22.:08:29.

northern Europe. The Triumph was briefly the largest container ship

:08:30.:08:33.

in the world. But now a larger one has just been delivered to South

:08:34.:08:37.

Korea. Despite her size, the Triumph is more efficient than Bill 's --

:08:38.:08:45.

boats built just five years ago. It even has special paint that reduces

:08:46.:08:46.

friction in the water. As you build bigger ships,

:08:47.:08:47.

they burn more fuel, But per container, because you are

:08:48.:08:50.

carrying more containers, the carbon footprint of the ship

:08:51.:08:53.

is actually going down James Comey a lot of interest in

:08:54.:09:04.

lots of people have come to see this lots of people have come to see this

:09:05.:09:08.

ship arriving. We took this footage from on-board. We have speeded it

:09:09.:09:15.

up. It shows the way that she came alongside effortlessly. The ship

:09:16.:09:21.

will stay here until the weekend before going to Hamburg and then

:09:22.:09:23.

back to Asia. It is crewed by just back to Asia. It is crewed by just

:09:24.:09:27.

20 people. Just 20 people on that huge ship. Southampton Airport says

:09:28.:09:32.

it has been a really proud day to have this ship alongside here. --

:09:33.:09:37.

Southampton port. That's all from the South Today
