And Theresa May has said she will publish her Brexit

:00:00.:00:00.

Wayne Moores was killed in a hit and run -

:00:00.:00:12.

now his family call for drunk drivers to be charged

:00:13.:00:14.

Accused of trying to assasinate Donald Trump.

:00:15.:00:19.

The 20-year-old from Surrey imprisoned in America

:00:20.:00:20.

And trapped in the ice - days of sub zero temperatures that's

:00:21.:00:26.

A couple from Hampshire whose son was killed by a drunk driver say

:00:27.:00:44.

a consultation about tougher penalties doesn't go far enough.

:00:45.:00:47.

Motorcyclist Wayne Moores was 28 when he died after a hit and run

:00:48.:00:54.

The driver was given a six year prison sentence.

:00:55.:01:01.

The maximum possible penalty for drivers who cause deaths

:01:02.:01:03.

through dangerous or careless driving under the influence

:01:04.:01:10.

of drink or drugs is currently 14 years.

:01:11.:01:12.

But in practice the average sentence given is just under five years.

:01:13.:01:15.

The Government is considering introducing life sentences

:01:16.:01:21.

but Wayne Moores' family say all such cases should be

:01:22.:01:23.

Deeply spiritual, had a huge sense of fun.

:01:24.:01:31.

Wayne Moore's parents remember a son lost at the age of 28.

He died after being knocked from his motorbike by a drunk

that. -- nothing can prepare a that. -- nothing can prepare a

:01:37.:01:53.

parent for seeing that. Every day that vision comes in to my mind. I

:01:54.:01:58.

saw it myself. The driver was given

:01:59.:02:13.

a six-year sentence driving while under the influence

:02:14.:02:14.

and served half of that in prison. Wayne's parents feel the current

:02:15.:02:18.

wording of charges and penalties given don't reflect

:02:19.:02:21.

the seriousness of road deaths. What message does it

:02:22.:02:23.

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

:02:24.:02:25.

just bit careless. No!

:02:26.:02:27.

It is people, it is lives! Why, when you get in a vehicle

:02:28.:02:34.

and you drive drunk, and you kill somebody,

:02:35.:02:37.

why is that not manslaughter? The government is consulting

:02:38.:02:39.

on whether the maximum sentence for such crimes should be increased

:02:40.:02:41.

from 14 years to life. Wayne's parents believe that needs

to be backed up by tougher A move they believe would change

other families. Briony, what has the Ministry

:02:57.:03:01.

of Justice had to say about this? Well we asked the Ministry

:03:02.:03:05.

of Justice for an interview instead they gave us a statement which says:

:03:06.:03:08.

"We are determined to make sure those who kill whilst driving under

:03:09.:03:11.

the influence of alcohol or drugs That is why we are consulting

:03:12.:03:14.

on plans that will see the maximum sentence for a number of offences

:03:15.:03:19.

in this area increase No direct answer there

:03:20.:03:21.

to the question raised by the Moores family over whether these kind

:03:22.:03:25.

of cases should be treated as manslaughter -

:03:26.:03:27.

which would be a big legal change. The consultation closes

from all interested The consultation closes

from all interested parties and its response

will be published by May. Four Dorset schoolchildren have

:03:40.:03:43.

been taken to hospital - over fears they had taken cocaine

:03:44.:03:46.

at school, believing Police were called to

:03:47.:03:48.

Broadstone Middle School in Poole on third January -

:03:49.:03:56.

but they hadn't actually taken any. A 32-year-old man has been arrested

:03:57.:03:59.

in connection with the incident. A Southampton man's been shot

:04:00.:04:03.

dead in a Thai resort. It's reported by the Bangkok Post

:04:04.:04:06.

that father of two Tony Kenway was killed in the drivers seat

:04:07.:04:09.

of his red Porsche in the car park The Foreign Office has confirmed

:04:10.:04:12.

it is in contact with local police. The mother of a man from Surrey

:04:13.:04:17.

accused of trying to assassinate Donald Trump says she's looking

:04:18.:04:19.

forward to him coming home so he can 20-year-old Michael Sandford

:04:20.:04:22.

from Dorking went to a Trump rally There he tried to snatch

a policeman's gun. He later said he wanted

:04:27.:04:29.

to shoot Mr Trump saying Michael Sandford, who has

:04:30.:04:32.

Asperger's syndrome, was sentenced to 12 months

:04:33.:04:35.

in prison, but has been told he'll be released in May

:04:36.:04:38.

because of his good behaviour. Our reporter David Allard has been

:04:39.:04:43.

speaking to his mum Lynne and he asked her what her reaction

had been when she was first My heart stopped beating

now just burst into Over the subsequent

:04:50.:04:54.

months when Michael was in detention, what was

it like as a family? I couldn't even speak

:05:00.:05:01.

to him for five weeks. Continuing to be so far apart has

:05:02.:05:11.

been tremendously difficult, too. Ultimately the judge at the

:05:12.:05:17.

sentencing was sympathetic to his mental health issues

:05:18.:05:19.

and he was given 12 months. What do you hope will

:05:20.:05:22.

happen when Michael is I hope he gets to come

home to his loving He will have a lot

of care that he still needs and medication

and support but he has a second chance in life

:05:32.:05:33.

to go forward and make

:05:34.:05:36.

something of himself. Southampton play the second-leg

:05:37.:05:43.

of their League Cup semifinal, Claude Puel's side may be

:05:44.:05:45.

without captain Virgil van Dijk who was injured

:05:46.:05:49.

against Leicester on Saturday. They go in to the game

:05:50.:05:53.

with a 1-0 lead. We are in a situation, of course,

:05:54.:05:59.

I think it is not sufficient to stay just one goal up.

:06:00.:06:03.

And it would be important to score. Days of sub-zero weather have led

:06:04.:06:13.

to long stretches of the Kennet Many narrow boats are trapped

:06:14.:06:16.

in the ice, unable to move. It's also causing problems

:06:17.:06:23.

for the Canal and River Trust - which is trying to keep its winter

maintenance and repair These boats are going nowhere any

:06:27.:06:42.

time soon. While the frozen layer is not especially thick driving forward

:06:43.:06:47.

in these conditions risks forcing up sheets of ice, potentially damaging

:06:48.:06:50.

to both boats and the banks. It also hampers efforts by the canal and

:06:51.:06:54.

River trust to carry out routine repairs like here west of Newbury.

:06:55.:06:57.

If the ice reaches a certain thickness then it does cause

:06:58.:07:00.

us problems with moving boats about in it, obviously.

:07:01.:07:02.

We can recreate a plough wave in front of us, of solid ice,

:07:03.:07:05.

So it causes problems with moving boats and also because locks

:07:06.:07:09.

are mostly Grade II listed structures, we have to use

:07:10.:07:11.

authentic materials, we have to use lime mortar

:07:12.:07:13.

and you can't lay lime mortar below certain temperatures.

While the eyes looks solid and places it is deceptively thin and

:07:40.:07:48.

And now the weather with Holly Green.

:07:49.:07:49.

We have had a lot of fog around for today

:07:50.:07:52.

but that has led to quite an

It's been sent in by weather watcher Dorset Phantom.

:07:54.:08:00.

It is formed in much the same way as a rainbow

:08:01.:08:03.

except because the water droplets in fog are that

it causes of a white colour as opposed to

:08:08.:08:10.

The reason we are getting so much fog is high-pressure has been

:08:11.:08:20.

in charge but as that increasingly slips into the Continent for

:08:21.:08:22.

tomorrow we have a cold southerly or south-easterly coming up and

:08:23.:08:25.

We had a lot of this fog and low cloud around.

:08:26.:08:31.

A bit about this coming through here and there into

:08:32.:08:34.

parts of Hampshire but in general a fairly murky picture.

:08:35.:08:36.

The mist and fog will lift up a bit as we the

:08:37.:08:39.

afternoon but it does then to stay fairly cloudy and grey.

:08:40.:08:44.

Temperatures struggling underneath the cloud.

:08:45.:08:49.

As we go into the night the cloud thickens further.

:08:50.:08:52.

It could get fit enough to bring a bit of rain and

:08:53.:08:55.

drizzle and maybe even a few went to the valleys and snow but it

:08:56.:08:58.

The risk of some ice as we head through

tonight into tomorrow morning as well.

:09:03.:09:04.

A very cloudy start to tomorrow and could

:09:05.:09:10.

Writing up a little as a day goes on but it

:09:11.:09:14.

will feel pretty bitter, especially for you are exposed to that breeze.

:09:15.:09:17.

Cloudy with a bit of rain for Friday and the risk of some heavy thundery

:09:18.:09:20.

Hopefully brighter and dryer for Sunday.

:09:21.:09:23.

The next regional news is at 6.30, more on the BBC News website.

Should've seen Hillary's face. She was stood there with Bill.

:09:44.:09:47.

Because she's going to an event to celebrate

:09:48.:09:53.

a job that she didn't get and the person closest to her, to reassure

:09:54.:10:00.

her, to tell her it's going to be OK,

:10:01.:10:03.

is a person who's already had that job.

:10:04.:10:05.

Yeah. She must be thinking, "Where can I go?"

:10:06.:10:13.

It's just pain, but it doesn't feel like pain,

:10:14.:10:25.

it feels much more violent, dark and exciting.

:10:26.:10:29.
