Nominations have closed, and a picture's now emerged

:00:10.:00:13.

of apparent deals and decisions across a number of our

:00:14.:00:15.

It's clear many people won't have the choice of supporting

:00:16.:00:20.

the party they voted for last time around.

:00:21.:00:22.

Strategic deals, Progressive alliances and pacts. It may be an

:00:23.:00:39.

election more notable for who isn't standing rather than who is. You get

:00:40.:00:45.

any number of seats partly to avoid clashing with Tories who strongly

:00:46.:00:53.

support Brexit. These three all want face a Ukip challenge and one party

:00:54.:00:57.

supporter from the new Forest has switched seats to take on a

:00:58.:01:00.

conservative who boarded to remain. It is about strategic options and

:01:01.:01:06.

not letting the remainder is getting through the back door, so we Brexit

:01:07.:01:11.

MPs and the houses of parliament but most of all we want three or four

:01:12.:01:19.

elite guardians of Brexit. The majority of voters in Dorset wanted

:01:20.:01:23.

to leave the EU yet in the Hall of Dorset there is only one Ukip

:01:24.:01:27.

candidate. None of these constituencies will see a purple

:01:28.:01:32.

rosette at the door. These seven seats clocked up 55,000 Ukip votes

:01:33.:01:39.

the incumbent Conservative voting to the incumbent Conservative voting to

:01:40.:01:47.

leave, Ukip is on the ballot paper. You are going to stand on your party

:01:48.:01:49.

or collars and it is absolutely right the electorate know where

:01:50.:01:50.

stand. I don't think it's a great stand. I don't think it's a great

:01:51.:01:53.

idea for people to be weighing things up. I don't think it helps

:01:54.:02:00.

our democracy. Targeting seats especially with a high-profile

:02:01.:02:04.

candidate isn't unusual. In south Surrey the National health action

:02:05.:02:08.

party wanted to unseat the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt. The Greens

:02:09.:02:12.

agreed not to put up a candidate and some local Labour activists wanted

:02:13.:02:17.

to do the same. They told the BBC, we never win, we've never got any

:02:18.:02:22.

hope of winning. The next day she and two others were excluded from

:02:23.:02:27.

the party. The Greens said they were best placed to try to unseat the

:02:28.:02:31.

Tories and ask others to stand aside. People want us to do grown-up

:02:32.:02:36.

politics and to recognise that if we want to avoid a massive Tory

:02:37.:02:40.

landslide we need to do that and not wake up on June nine and wish we had

:02:41.:02:45.

done things differently. You can't step up an election. Our voters want

:02:46.:02:52.

just going to a pen we point out. It is not enough to just be against the

:02:53.:02:56.

Tories, you have to give positive reasons that is what they will to

:02:57.:03:02.

do. The Greens are big supporters of strategic alliances to tackle what

:03:03.:03:06.

they see as an unfair voting system. Like Ukip, they have agreed not to

:03:07.:03:11.

field a candidate in mid Dorset and North pool, asking voters to back

:03:12.:03:17.

the Liberal Democrats instead. It was put to me that they were

:03:18.:03:21.

interested and the next thing I knew, they had said, the most

:03:22.:03:25.

important thing is to unseat the Conservatives, and that will help,

:03:26.:03:28.

standing aside, she is prepared to do it. But do deals work? In some

:03:29.:03:35.

seats it will be an uphill struggle. Jeremy Hunt got 60% of the vote

:03:36.:03:40.

here, and many conservatives are defending large majorities just like

:03:41.:03:43.

that, which could be hard to overtime. -- overturned.

:03:44.:03:46.

Next, two of the South's hospital trusts have been caught up

:03:47.:03:50.

in a cyber-attack against the NHS - and been locked out

:03:51.:03:53.

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust says it's working

:03:54.:03:55.

with the ambulance service to minimise the impact

:03:56.:03:57.

It's asking people to think twice before going to A and E.

:03:58.:04:01.

The Royal Berks Hospital in Reading says its patient discharge

:04:02.:04:04.

system is affected - it's currently relying

:04:05.:04:05.

There'll be major disruption for drivers this weekend

:04:06.:04:11.

during essential roadworks on the M4.

:04:12.:04:13.

It's been closed between junction 12 at Theale

:04:14.:04:15.

and junction 13 for Chievely since nine o'clock this evening.

:04:16.:04:17.

It won't re-open until early Monday morning.

:04:18.:04:19.

All traffic's being diverted along the A4 with severe delays predicted

:04:20.:04:21.

It's hard to detect, and has one of the lowest survival

:04:22.:04:35.

Now a surgeon from Southampton's been given ?1.4 million

:04:36.:04:38.

Fewer than a fifth of people with oesophageal cancer currently

:04:39.:04:41.

I was really pleased that I gave it a good go.

:04:42.:04:54.

You know, it's another touch of normality -

:04:55.:04:56.

John Goham from Hampshire completed half the London Marathon this year -

:04:57.:05:01.

But John has got oesophageal cancer, or cancer of the gullet.

:05:02.:05:08.

If only 15% of people that are diagnosed survive

:05:09.:05:12.

beyond five years, that seemed like a really low percentage.

:05:13.:05:17.

And that's where this lab at Southampton Hospital comes in.

:05:18.:05:21.

Thanks to over ?1 million of funding from Cancer Research UK,

:05:22.:05:23.

scientists are examining these cancer cells so they can

:05:24.:05:26.

So what we do is the cell comes in the bottom here,

:05:27.:05:42.

that's the tiny blob, and then the DNA bar-coded bead

:05:43.:05:44.

The cell is exploded and the genetic information in that cell

:05:45.:05:48.

is captured on the bead, and we process thousands of cells

:05:49.:05:50.

from each tumour to understand the biology of the disease.

:05:51.:05:53.

It's also hoped that Tim and his team will find new ways

:05:54.:05:56.

At the moment, surgery is long and invasive.

:05:57.:05:59.

Patients like John have their oesophagus removed

:06:00.:06:01.

Surgery can last for up to nine hours.

:06:02.:06:04.

I'd like to do myself out of business.

:06:05.:06:06.

Doing surgery for oesophageal cancer is demanding for the patients,

:06:07.:06:08.

It takes six to nine months to recover from.

:06:09.:06:11.

And I don't have to operate on these people and if we can

:06:12.:06:15.

target treatment better, then I am happy to stop.

:06:16.:06:20.

Yes, we have got a few marathons planned, haven't we, John?

:06:21.:06:23.

John's cancer treatment still continues.

:06:24.:06:24.

He's hoping the work down the road at Southampton Hospital will see

:06:25.:06:28.

That's it from the news team - we're back tomorrow evening at 6:15.

:06:29.:06:34.

Right now, Sarah Farmer's here with your weekend weather.

:06:35.:06:40.

Thank you. We have some rain in the forecast for this weekend. Tonight

:06:41.:06:47.

we have one or two showers and store but most of those on the light side

:06:48.:06:50.

and generally there will be quite a bit of cloud and maybe a few holes

:06:51.:06:54.

the cloud but patchy rain starting to work its way in. A mild night

:06:55.:07:01.

with the temperature at 10-11. A little bit of wet weather first

:07:02.:07:04.

thing but some decent brightness and through much of the day, some bright

:07:05.:07:08.

and sunny intervals and the odd chance of a shower cropping up but

:07:09.:07:11.

lighter than the showers we saw today. Given some sunny breaks the

:07:12.:07:17.

temperature could claim to 1718. Enter tomorrow evening, we will

:07:18.:07:23.

start to see a band of wet weather arising from the south-west, and

:07:24.:07:25.

that is with us through the overnight period into Sunday. It

:07:26.:07:29.

clear through to the east so Sunday is set fine with sunny spells and

:07:30.:07:32.

showers, Monday some A bit of a mixed bag earlier on

:07:33.:07:42.

today, some of us were cloudy with rain. This is the view from one of

:07:43.:07:48.

our weather watchers in Cornwall. But in the Highlands of Scotland, it

:07:49.:07:52.

was completely different, find, sunny and warm. The satellite and

:07:53.:07:57.

radar picture shows the variety of weather we have had. It brightened

:07:58.:08:03.

up into the afternoon, early evening. The north-east of Scotland
