Good afternoon, I'm Lewis Coombes with your news in the South.

:00:11.:00:13.

A convicted murderer from Weymouth is on the run after breaching

:00:14.:00:16.

Police are looking for Jamie Frater, who was jailed for life in 1993

:00:17.:00:22.

for stabbing a teacher to death in Bournemouth.

:00:23.:00:24.

Frater has previously escaped from prison on two other occasions.

:00:25.:00:28.

The public are advised not to approach the 43-year-old

:00:29.:00:31.

More than 100 anti-Donald Trump protestors gathered

:00:32.:00:36.

in Southampton this afternoon to highlight their anger over

:00:37.:00:39.

It tied in with other women-led protests across the world organised

:00:40.:00:44.

as a show of solidarity and call for equal rights.

:00:45.:00:47.

Today was President Trump's first day in office after winning one

:00:48.:00:50.

of the most divisive political campaigns in US history.

:00:51.:00:55.

To think that he's got so far just makes my blood boil.

:00:56.:00:58.

I think it's also the fact that he's got no political

:00:59.:01:01.

experience at all because, at the end of the day,

:01:02.:01:04.

He is protecting the values of the richest people in the country.

:01:05.:01:09.

We need to build bridges, not walls, I think is the essential thing.

:01:10.:01:14.

We generated so much interest so, yeah, Southampton was united and I'm

:01:15.:01:18.

so proud of Southampton for turning out today.

:01:19.:01:20.

20 tonnes of aid collected by a Hampshire charity

:01:21.:01:24.

Volunteers from the Portsmouth group Don't Hate, Donate got a big

:01:25.:01:29.

response to their appeal for supplies to help people

:01:30.:01:32.

who've lost their homes in Syria's civil war.

:01:33.:01:34.

Last night, all the aid was packed ready for its long journey.

:01:35.:01:38.

Box by box, all of the aid supplies were passed along a human chain

:01:39.:01:45.

and stacked in the shipping container in which it'll be

:01:46.:01:48.

transported to its final destination in Syria.

:01:49.:01:54.

You want to do anything you can and this is something that I can do.

:01:55.:02:02.

For me, it's demonstrating the best in humanity.

:02:03.:02:05.

People are hearing and then the word's spreading,

:02:06.:02:08.

People have donated blankets, clothes, food and medicines -

:02:09.:02:14.

many motivated to help after seeing TV reports of the misery caused

:02:15.:02:18.

I think it was probably because I spent most evenings

:02:19.:02:24.

watching the news in absolute despair and I felt like I had to do

:02:25.:02:27.

Everybody from all communities came together and I think it's just shown

:02:28.:02:34.

that love coming across and that willingness to help as well.

:02:35.:02:37.

The Portsmouth-based charity Don't Hate, Donate used a big event

:02:38.:02:41.

in the city's Guildhall Square to publicise its

:02:42.:02:44.

The aid will be distributed by inexperienced team in Syria.

:02:45.:02:51.

So we work with British humanitarian aid workers

:02:52.:02:55.

on the ground over in Syria, and they are ready.

:02:56.:02:59.

They've got a fantastic team in place and they distribute

:03:00.:03:02.

it to the most needy on the ground there.

:03:03.:03:04.

The charity is now planning to send another consignment of aid

:03:05.:03:08.

Steve Humphrey, BBC South Today, Portsmouth.

:03:09.:03:15.

Onto sport and, in the Premier League, Bournemouth came from behind

:03:16.:03:17.

Goals from Joshua King and a late strike from Benik Afobe helped claim

:03:18.:03:22.

a point for Eddie Howe's side, who are now without a league win at

:03:23.:03:26.

In the Championship, after Brighton's victory last night

:03:27.:03:30.

kept them in the hunt for promotion, Reading failed to keep up

:03:31.:03:33.

with the pace, losing 3-2 away to play-off rivals Derby County.

:03:34.:03:37.

In League 1, MK Dons came out on top in an eight-goal thriller

:03:38.:03:40.

against Northampton while Oxford secured an impressive 4-0 win away

:03:41.:03:44.

The weather put paid to Portsmouth's game at Crawley in League 2 -

:03:45.:03:53.

And it was a cold day for most of us.

:03:54.:03:57.

Here's Bee Tucker with your weather forecast.

:03:58.:03:59.

We've had a bit more cloud push in through this

:04:00.:04:04.

afternoon so I think, for some of us tonight,

:04:05.:04:06.

We can even see a little bit of drizzle, perhaps even some sleet

:04:07.:04:11.

I think there will be a few breaks tonight so, rurally,

:04:12.:04:14.

And that does mean we do run the risk of seeing some ice

:04:15.:04:19.

on the roads first thing tomorrow, some mist, shallow fog.

:04:20.:04:22.

I think it's a slow burner so it will start off

:04:23.:04:25.

We should see more sunshine developing

:04:26.:04:27.

So a bright afternoon, marginally less cold than today.

:04:28.:04:31.

And it does stay settled as we head through the week,

:04:32.:04:33.

mainly dry, quite bright, but rather cold.

:04:34.:04:35.

And a reminder that our current affairs programme Sunday Politics

:04:36.:04:39.

will be talking to the recently departed leader of the Isle of Wight

:04:40.:04:43.

Good evening. It does not get warmer. If you check the UK as a

:04:44.:05:20.

whole, it has been one of the coldest days so far. The hard frost

:05:21.:05:24.

to come in areas where it stays clear, parts of East Anglia, the

:05:25.:05:29.

south-east, fog across Scotland, at West, a change, showers and parts of

:05:30.:05:33.

Wales and England, some snow on high ground as well. Meanwhile, down

:05:34.:05:37.

under through the early hours, Andy Murray will be getting ready for his

:05:38.:05:41.

next match in the
