ladies this lunchtime. Over two legs, Southampton were very much

:01:05.:01:10.

their underdogs against Klopp's Liverpool. But they came through

:01:11.:01:17.

pretty comfortably. They want 1-0 at fortnight ago and again this time.

:01:18.:01:23.

The fans went home very happy and looking forward to their first final

:01:24.:01:25.

in this competition since 1979. They was defending really deep,

:01:26.:01:28.

but we got them on the counter. When Shane Long went through,

:01:29.:01:31.

I was praying he'd put it in the back of the net,

:01:32.:01:35.

and he only gone and done it. Of course, we can, any

:01:36.:01:38.

team can win the Cup. We haven't conceded a goal yet

:01:39.:01:47.

in this competition, so come on, let's go,

Manchester United at Wembley. The last time, Southampton were the

:02:08.:02:10.

underdogs again that they beat Manchester United. The man in charge

:02:11.:02:12.

spoke to me this morning. We should've been two or three goals

:02:13.:02:17.

up the first leg and like most football people, I thought,

:02:18.:02:21.

one is not enough, And yet the tactics

:02:22.:02:23.

by Claude Puel were perfect. And to finish off with that

:02:24.:02:26.

ball, that was the icing Shane Long has fired

:02:27.:02:30.

them into a 1-0 lead. For the first time since 1979,

:02:54.:02:57.

would have the best interests of the club at heart,

she also shared fans' joy at reaching Wembley saying February

26th will be a brilliant day. Taxi drivers in Winchester are

:03:03.:03:06.

complaining at what they describe as an unfair kick in the wallet

:03:07.:03:08.

from South West Trains. Cabbies are angry at a big increase

:03:09.:03:11.

in the cost of a permit to use Steve Humphrey reports

:03:12.:03:14.

from Winchester. The big complaint among taxi drivers

:03:15.:03:19.

here is that the fee from South West Trains for them

:03:20.:03:22.

to use the taxi rank outside of Winchester Station has gone

:03:23.:03:25.

up from ?308 in 2009, One of the drivers who is upset

:03:26.:03:27.

at the increase is Barry Hussey. Very angry, because we can't

:03:28.:03:37.

increase our fares, but South West Trains can increase

:03:38.:03:42.

the fee that they charge us. You were telling me that the taxi

:03:43.:03:45.

fares haven't increased March 2011 was the last

:03:46.:03:48.

time the fears went up. So you don't mind paying,

:03:49.:03:56.

but you want something The same as they do

:03:57.:03:58.

with the train passengers. 2% or 3%, in line with inflation,

:03:59.:04:04.

but 10-15% a year is Well, South West Trains have told us

:04:05.:04:07.

that, as the number of people using the station has increased,

:04:08.:04:16.

taxi drivers have actually had an increased share of business,

:04:17.:04:18.

and they say that the fee is less Steve Humphrey, BBC

South Today, Winchester. Plans for a combined authority

:04:22.:04:31.

for Solent and an elected mayor because the council's couldn't

:04:32.:04:39.

agree a way forward. The government's said it can't

give the money to just The leader of Hampshire county

:04:43.:04:45.

council says remaining as one whole county delivers value for money

:04:46.:04:48.

for the taxpayer, but the Portsmouth city council leader told us she's

:04:49.:04:51.

'deeply disappointed'. Archaeologists have discovered three

:04:52.:04:56.

almost complete Roman buildings under a West Sussex

:04:57.:04:57.

city centre park. The find in Chichester includes two

:04:58.:04:59.

large masonry houses. Well, let's go live now

:05:00.:05:08.

to Sean Killick who is there and Sean it's survived

:05:09.:05:11.

hundreds of years? Yes, for generations, the people of

:05:12.:05:19.

Chichester have been playing here and having picnics, unaware of what

:05:20.:05:24.

was beneath their feet. Now they know, and it's thanks to David. He

:05:25.:05:28.

used a ground penetrating radar machine to carry out a survey of the

:05:29.:05:34.

park, and slowly, on his screen, he found the complete foundations of

:05:35.:05:40.

the Roman buildings. You can see on the screen, and vertical slice of

:05:41.:05:43.

the ground, so I could see what was going on under there. But it's

:05:44.:05:48.

difficult to see from the little but we were looking at to see exactly

:05:49.:05:52.

what's going on, so we need to download it and put it together to

:05:53.:05:58.

see what's going on. What was your reaction when you discovered it? I

:05:59.:06:07.

came back and did some more. Chichester district Council and the

:06:08.:06:11.

local archaeological group carried out a test dig, and they actually

:06:12.:06:14.

dug down and looked into the ground, and they found what they believe to

:06:15.:06:18.

be actually the remains of these grand houses that were left in by

:06:19.:06:24.

someone of great importance. They say it's a really unusual discovery.

:06:25.:06:28.

It's no surprise to find Roman town houses in a Roman town, but what

:06:29.:06:32.

surprises the completeness was then a town that has been so occupied

:06:33.:06:38.

over the years, that most of the archaeology has been destroyed. It

:06:39.:06:51.

wouldn't be surprised to find this in some more remote places, but

defined in Chichester, where people live and in a park where they play

:06:56.:06:59.

cricket is just amazing. They hope to carry out small scale excavations

:07:00.:07:02.

later in the year to find out more about the people who once lived

:07:03.:07:03.

there. A Berkshire woman has raised funds

:07:04.:07:08.

online to buy a new bike for a stranger who left a note

:07:09.:07:11.

saying their bike had been stolen. Rachel Thomas saw the note stuck

:07:12.:07:14.

to an empty bike-rack Its author Alex said they'd

:07:15.:07:16.

saved up a year for it. The note said Alex would wait

:07:17.:07:20.

by the bike rack at 6pm each day this week, hoping it

:07:21.:07:24.

would be returned. Well, it's a pretty forlorn looking

:07:25.:07:25.

little note, as you see. Everything I read just made me feel

:07:26.:07:28.

sad for the person, really. And that's what motivated

:07:29.:07:31.

me to do something. You can find out what happened next

:07:32.:07:33.

on South Today tonight at 6.30. It's ever so cold out there,

:07:34.:07:36.

we've got a bitter wind, and that's really making it feel

:07:37.:07:48.

ever so nippy indeed. Now, we've had cold air pulling over

:07:49.:07:54.

the continent and it's coming Still, as we push into

:07:55.:07:57.

the afternoon, after quite a cloudy start for most of us,

:07:58.:08:01.

it should brighten up a little bit, I think further north,

:08:02.:08:04.

across the likes of Oxfordshire and Berkshire, it will tend

:08:05.:08:07.

to stay fairly grey. But it's those temperatures that are

:08:08.:08:09.

really the talking point, I think. Some spots not picking up

:08:10.:08:12.

beyond freezing for today. And although further south,

:08:13.:08:14.

those temperatures are a bit higher, because of this brisk

:08:15.:08:17.

southeasterly, they feel much colder than these numbers

:08:18.:08:19.

might otherwise suggest. As we push into the night tonight,

:08:20.:08:26.

we tend to find any Starry skies overhead and that means

:08:27.:08:29.

the likelihood of some frost. Into the early hours,

:08:30.:08:32.

the risk of some rain or drizzle, which could lead to some ice,

:08:33.:08:38.

and we could see a few wintry flurries in the mix as well,

:08:39.:08:41.

but they really shouldn't amount These are our low temperatures,

:08:42.:08:44.

so it is a cold one as we head There is a risk of some

:08:45.:08:49.

ice around initially. Fairly cloudy skies,

:08:50.:08:52.

any brightness in short supply, And then come the afternoon,

:08:53.:08:54.

we start to see some outbreaks that These are our top

:08:55.:09:01.

temperatures for tomorrow. They are bit higher than today,

:09:02.:09:04.

it will feel like a chilly picture. Some uncertainty about

:09:05.:09:07.

the detail into the weekend. Some bright spells on Saturday,

:09:08.:09:09.

but also the risk of Outbreaks of rain for Sunday,

:09:10.:09:12.

but some uncertainty But it should be just

:09:13.:09:15.

that little bit milder. That's all from us this lunchtime,
