Hello and good afternoon, I'm Tom Hepworth.

:00:00.:00:00.

Employers are urged to help staff give up smoking tobacco by allowing

:00:00.:00:10.

A local film maker helps an Oxfordshire

:00:11.:00:17.

And - unseen history, rare footage of the network

:00:18.:00:22.

of railways that once covered the Isle of Wight.

:00:23.:00:38.

There are calls for employers in the south to review policies

:00:39.:00:41.

on smoking to encourage staff who want to give up tobacco

:00:42.:00:44.

Public Health England says so called "vaping" has helped more

:00:45.:00:53.

than a million people stop smoking cigarettes and firms should make

:00:54.:00:55.

Phil from Southampton was a smoker for 24 years before he discovered

:00:56.:01:06.

e-cigarettes two years ago and he got a surprise when he went to his

:01:07.:01:11.

GP... I said I had stopped smoking a year or so ago, he said that I was

:01:12.:01:16.

now a nonsmoker. Since then, my life insurance forms have been filled out

:01:17.:01:20.

as a nonsmoker, which is brilliant from my point of view, saving me a

:01:21.:01:25.

fortune! Public Health England estimates that vaping is 95% less

:01:26.:01:32.

harmful than smoking. Last year guidelines were issued for employers

:01:33.:01:35.

who said that they should support people wanting to quit. But, Phil's

:01:36.:01:43.

employer, like most of the South, does not support the distinction. It

:01:44.:01:49.

is classed the same as smoking, we smoke in the same shade as the

:01:50.:01:53.

smokers and so forth, it is the same, they do not see a difference.

:01:54.:01:58.

I am getting second-hand smoke, which may not be the best thing in

:01:59.:02:01.

the history of the universe given that I am vaping now. But the chair

:02:02.:02:06.

of the Royal can tube GPs has said that vaping should be banned in

:02:07.:02:13.

public places and should not be seen as a choice -- Royal Oak on a dude

:02:14.:02:22.

GPs. Daily, people are mesmerised, I don't know how quickly it will

:02:23.:02:27.

change but it has two. For the time being, anyone wanting to make an

:02:28.:02:32.

informed decision may find that the decision has been clouded.

:02:33.:02:37.

Train drivers on Southern Railway have cut their strike next week

:02:38.:02:40.

But as Alsef union members will stop work on Tuesday,

:02:41.:02:43.

Wednesday and Friday, services will still be disrupted

:02:44.:02:45.

The union has also announced a further three days

:02:46.:03:00.

Southern says its a cynical ploy to reduce the impact

:03:01.:03:03.

It will lay on 200 buses on each strike day.

:03:04.:03:09.

A non-league footballer's apologised for mocking Bournemouth player

:03:10.:03:11.

Harry Arter over the death of his baby daughter.

:03:12.:03:13.

The FA will investigate Hitchin Town player Alfie Barker who made

:03:14.:03:16.

the remarks on Twitter after the Cherries lost a three goal

:03:17.:03:18.

Renee Arter was stillborn in December 2015, the Bournemouth

:03:19.:03:22.

player says there isn't a day that goes by without him thinking of her.

:03:23.:03:25.

The family of a mother accused of plotting to topple the Iranian

:03:26.:03:28.

government expect a court will hear her appeal later.

:03:29.:03:30.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a British-Iranian charity worker

:03:31.:03:32.

Her husband Richard, whose family lives in Fleet in Hampshire,

:03:33.:03:38.

says their daughter Gabriella is having to cope without her mum.

:03:39.:03:43.

She is getting older, and as she does, she asks questions about when

:03:44.:03:50.

we are going back to London, where is daddy, where is money? She talks

:03:51.:03:55.

about prisoners in money's bedroom. -- where is my mummy. She is loved

:03:56.:04:00.

and well looked after. Many of us imagine at some point

:04:04.:04:06.

from Kingston Bagpuize in Oxfordshire certainly has,

but she cant speak and has That didn't stop her though -

with the help of her parents, carers and a local film maker, she's

:04:47.:04:57.

along side of her parents and carers, that has been a real dream

:04:58.:05:01.

come true for Sarah. I really enjoyed making

:05:02.:05:03.

The Little Mermaid We spent the day dressing up

and Sarah was on a beanbag, so it meant she got some

from Ryde Pier to Shanklin. But the railways used

:05:48.:05:51.

to crisscross the island. With archive film you've

:05:52.:05:53.

never seen before, our Transport Correspondent Paul Clifton

:05:54.:05:55.

looks at how the end of the steam The Isle of Wight once had

55 miles of railways. This is 1928, when trains linked

:05:59.:06:02.

most towns and villages. From the 1950s onwards,

:06:03.:06:06.

the lines gradually closed. At the end of 1966, Ventnor died

:06:07.:06:13.

because the line from Ryde to Ventnor served the principal

:06:14.:06:23.

holiday resorts on the island, Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor -

:06:24.:06:25.

and it took Ventnor about 30 years to reinvent itself to become

:06:26.:06:28.

a destination once again. If you look carefully,

evidence of the old railways A platform that hasn't

seen trains in decades. Once called Whitwell Station,

:06:40.:06:48.

here it is in 1897. After 104 years, the last steam

:06:49.:06:53.

train ran on New Year's Eve, 1966. The trains were probably much more

:06:54.:07:00.

busy than an average house on New Year's Eve,

:07:01.:07:08.

and as ever, people were very much coming

:07:09.:07:10.

for their last trip of an era. In reality, the island has

:07:11.:07:17.

two heritage railways. Unlikely survivors

:07:18.:07:19.

from the island's past. And there are no firm

:07:20.:07:22.

plans to update it. They look like a very comfortable

length report on the BBC Good afternoon, it was quite a

:07:38.:07:50.

cloudy morning for most but not all of us, a better chance this

:07:51.:07:54.

afternoon of seeing sunny spells coming through. Pretty but great

:07:55.:07:57.

looking photos from Weather Watchers, this is a nice scene,

:07:58.:08:02.

aside from that cloud! That was Hungerford. That cloud is thanks to

:08:03.:08:06.

this weather front pushing its way through but has it for years, there

:08:07.:08:10.

will be brighter skies coming in and some colder air coming into night,

:08:11.:08:14.

tonight will be very cold. This is the seen so far, cloudy with some

:08:15.:08:25.

holes in the crowd here and there, some of us seeing sunshine and a bit

:08:26.:08:28.

of rain for us as well. That's associated with this weather front.

:08:29.:08:31.

Patches here and there, damp for some of us, but that will clear,

:08:32.:08:33.

bright spells and temperatures average for this time of year. At

:08:34.:08:37.

the end of tonight, skies clear and that means that it will be cold.

:08:38.:08:42.

Widespread hard frost on the way for tonight, missed and freezing fog

:08:43.:08:48.

patches, typical temperatures but it could be as low as minus eight

:08:49.:08:52.

degrees tonight, a very cold start fought morning. Any mist and fog

:08:53.:08:58.

should clear, and it should be a lovely and bright day. Winter

sunshine Fort McMurray, a gorgeous day, if you like the bright weather,

:09:02.:09:11.

-- winter sunshine for tomorrow. On Friday, Al breaks of rain, and it

:09:12.:09:16.

will be mild as we head into the weekend, good on the most part.

:09:17.:09:23.

Thank you, we will be back here at 6:30pm on BBC One. See you then.
