Hello and welcome to South Today, I'm Edward Sault.

:00:00.:00:00.

The top stories this Monday lunchtime.

:00:07.:00:08.

Cancelled flights, delayed ferries and crashes on the road as freezing

:00:09.:00:10.

The parents calling on the Government to

:00:11.:00:15.

test all pregnant women for an infection that can be

:00:16.:00:17.

And pressures of a night shift, why more

:00:18.:00:22.

than 40% of junior doctors admit to falling asleep at the wheel.

:00:23.:00:37.

Freezing fog and ice has led to major travel disruption

:00:38.:00:42.

In Dorset, there'd been over a dozen crashes

:00:43.:00:45.

The weather also led to delays on ferry services and at Gatwick,

:00:46.:00:56.

Live to Southampton Airport and our reporter Lewis Coombes.

:00:57.:00:59.

And, Lewis, plenty of delayed and cancelled flights there too ?

:01:00.:01:04.

That's right, it's hard to believe but behind me is what usually is

:01:05.:01:11.

just a bustling regional airport but note flights in or out today at the

:01:12.:01:15.

moment due to the fog. They did get a couple this morning but the

:01:16.:01:18.

problem is that aircraft can't land and pick up passengers. Some have

:01:19.:01:23.

been shipped by bus to Bristol and Bournemouth airports to try and get

:01:24.:01:26.

them to their destinations while others have had to wait in the

:01:27.:01:30.

terminal. I just caught up with one family, they left Dorset at three

:01:31.:01:34.

a.m., excited about going to Disneyland Paris and their plight

:01:35.:01:39.

could be as late as PM. Also problems at Gatwick, planes on the

:01:40.:01:44.

runway for up to two hours and one person on one of them was a BBC

:01:45.:01:48.

reporter Paul Moss. This flight is now two and a half hours later and

:01:49.:01:51.

still nowhere near taking off as far as I can tell. The problem started

:01:52.:01:55.

with the fog, which delayed the flight by two hours but as

:01:56.:01:59.

passengers decided they wanted to get off, presumably because it

:02:00.:02:02.

wasn't worth making the journey, Gatwick seems to have found they

:02:03.:02:05.

don't have stabbed to scored passengers back to the terminal, so

:02:06.:02:10.

there are further delays, which means more passengers want to get

:02:11.:02:13.

off the plane and means further delays and no sign of the party

:02:14.:02:17.

whatsoever. Lewis, what impact have we seen on the region's roads?

:02:18.:02:23.

Widespread disruption there as well. Dorset police reported they had 14

:02:24.:02:27.

incidents before nine o'clock this morning, so a big impact on the

:02:28.:02:31.

commute. Last Monday, just to accidents. In Hampshire, a number of

:02:32.:02:36.

serious incidents, a nine car crash on the M3 this morning and also

:02:37.:02:39.

elsewhere a number of different incidents. The ferries, if you have

:02:40.:02:44.

been trying to get to or from the Isle of Wight, you would have

:02:45.:02:48.

struggled. The Lymington to Yarmouth service has been suspended with

:02:49.:02:52.

Wightlink, the Portsmouth to Fishbourne service is running the

:02:53.:02:59.

two hours delay while the red -- services are running a two hour

:03:00.:03:04.

delay. Today is a good day to stay inside and not try and travel

:03:05.:03:05.

anywhere. Families from the south have given

:03:06.:03:08.

a petition to the Government asking for all pregnant women to be tested

:03:09.:03:11.

for a infection that's A quarter of a million people have

:03:12.:03:13.

signed the petition. Group B Streptococcus

sepsis and pneumonia. Jo Bevan from Basingstoke was two

I gave birth to Faye. I was also very, very poorly

Zaghari-Ratcliffe learned yesterday that the appeal

:03:58.:04:02.

against her five-year sentence on what's been described

:04:03.:04:04.

as "security-related charges". Richard Ratcliffe says his

:04:05.:04:09.

high-profile campaign to get her

:04:10.:04:11.

released must continue. The latest row by conductors is

:04:12.:04:24.

causing disruption for passengers on southern Railway, but less than

:04:25.:04:27.

usual. The company says it is running seven in ten services. Paul

:04:28.:04:31.

Clifton is here. That's not far of the normal service, is it? Southern

:04:32.:04:38.

service even on a good day is the worst in the country. Today is

:04:39.:04:43.

perhaps 15% down on a normal southern day. The RMT Union calls

:04:44.:04:49.

the strike rock-solid. Southern is certainly running more trains were a

:04:50.:04:53.

second member of staff. The union says it is happening six times more

:04:54.:04:56.

often than promised but that is three more trains a day. The biggest

:04:57.:05:00.

changes that drivers are routinely operating train doors on the

:05:01.:05:05.

majority of services. Driver controlled operation, in railway

:05:06.:05:08.

speak. That is not the same as driver only operation. Most trains

:05:09.:05:12.

have on-board supervisors. Bottom line is that during an M Magda

:05:13.:05:18.

Linette RMT strike, most trains can now run. They are running to

:05:19.:05:22.

Portsmouth and Southampton for the first time on a stroke play and some

:05:23.:05:28.

passengers are through to London instead of having to change. One

:05:29.:05:31.

member of the RMT has been sacked in Sussex. It is claimed she bullied

:05:32.:05:35.

other union members who wanted to work on strike days, but she is

:05:36.:05:39.

appealing against that dismissal. What about the talks between the

:05:40.:05:44.

drivers and the company? Three days of strikes this week by drivers have

:05:45.:05:47.

been suspended. The two sides met for three days of peace talks last

:05:48.:05:52.

week and are meeting again today. The other union, the RMT, is

:05:53.:06:01.

excluded from those talks so it's drivers will strike tomorrow. There

:06:02.:06:03.

are 1,000 drivers in the Aslef union, there are 12 in the RMT, so

:06:04.:06:06.

the company says it will run a full timetable tomorrow for the first

:06:07.:06:09.

time in nearly two months. Paul, thank you very much.

:06:10.:06:14.

More than 40% of junior doctors admit to having fallen asleep at the

:06:15.:06:20.

wheel of their cars on the way home. The BBC's inside out programme has

:06:21.:06:24.

investigated the impact that working night shifts is having on staff

:06:25.:06:26.

across the South. It's 8am and junior doctor

:06:27.:06:28.

Sam Jayaweera just finished another Really, really busy,

:06:29.:06:31.

erm, quite stressful, I cover intensive care and we had

:06:32.:06:36.

a full unit of patients. All right, so, if you'd

:06:37.:06:40.

like to come through to To see how working nights

:06:41.:06:42.

affects her driving, we've gone to the Transport Research

:06:43.:06:48.

laboratory in Berkshire. Fatigue is a huge

:06:49.:06:51.

road safety problem. Our own perception of our fatigue

:06:52.:06:53.

tends to lag behind reality and by the time we've realised it,

:06:54.:06:59.

we've already made a very serious mistake which could have

:07:00.:07:02.

led to a collision. Sam is put through series of tests

:07:03.:07:04.

on a virtual motorway. Just 19 minutes in, she starts

:07:05.:07:08.

having micro-sleeps. Micro sleep is a slightly longer

:07:09.:07:12.

blink, up to 15 seconds in duration. For Sam and all drivers,

:07:13.:07:16.

the results come as a wake-up call Inside Out is on tonight

:07:17.:07:27.

at 7.30 tonight on BBC One. A miserable start for many of us

:07:28.:07:45.

across the region, let's find out if it is said to get any better with

:07:46.:07:47.

Emily. It's been a rather chilly start

:07:48.:07:48.

to the week, it's going to remain quite chilly over the next few days

:07:49.:07:52.

and some fog proving quite slow We have got some sunshine breaking

:07:53.:07:55.

through, but we are looking High pressure is with us

:07:56.:07:58.

at the moment, very light winds, that means that fog will reform

:07:59.:08:02.

quite widely through tonight. It does remain dry over the next few

:08:03.:08:04.

days, we should see a bit more in the way of sunshine later

:08:05.:08:08.

in the week as well. So the best of the sunshine

:08:09.:08:11.

is to the west, some more cloud to the north and east,

:08:12.:08:14.

some misty, foggy conditions lingering through much

:08:15.:08:16.

of this afternoon. Particularly, we have

:08:17.:08:20.

got the mist and cloud, remaining feeling cold,

:08:21.:08:23.

highs of 3-5 degrees, seven or eight Celsius

:08:24.:08:25.

at best in any sunshine. And through tonight,

:08:26.:08:27.

the fog will reform We're also looking at a widespread

:08:28.:08:29.

frost through tonight and freezing fog could well be a hazard

:08:30.:08:32.

through tonight and for tomorrow morning, temperatures down

:08:33.:08:35.

to minus two or minus three Celsius. So tomorrow, they'll be frost,

:08:36.:08:37.

some locally dense fog and some Quite slow to clear as well for many

:08:38.:08:40.

places and it may linger locally More cloud through tomorrow as well

:08:41.:08:46.

adding to the chilly feel. Still those light winds and highs

:08:47.:08:50.

of up to eight degrees. A bit of a change for later

:08:51.:08:53.

in the week, though. From Wednesday onwards,

:08:54.:08:55.

the winds increase so mist and fog should become less of a hazard

:08:56.:08:58.

for the second half of this week. There will be some cloud at times,

:08:59.:09:01.

particularly Wednesday and Friday. A little sunshine through

:09:02.:09:05.

the day on Thursday. There will be the risk still of some

:09:06.:09:09.

overnight frosts but it does remain That said, we are back with you at

:09:10.:09:25.
