Good evening. now time for the news where you are.

:00:10.:00:10.

I'm David Allard with the news in the south.

:00:11.:00:12.

A Hampshire man has condemned a court in Iran for rejecting

:00:13.:00:15.

an appeal against his wife's five-year prison sentence.

:00:16.:00:17.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has dual British-Iranian citizenship.

:00:18.:00:20.

The charity worker was detained on what's been described

:00:21.:00:22.

as security-related charges when she took their young

:00:23.:00:24.

It's been nine months since Richard Ratcliffe last saw his wife.

:00:25.:00:32.

Now he's dealing with another setback in the campaign

:00:33.:00:35.

There was a sinking feeling when today bad news came.

:00:36.:00:39.

Her mum and her dad were seeing her in the prison and then,

:00:40.:00:44.

at the same time, there was this press conference going on.

:00:45.:00:47.

It's emerged Nazanin's appeal was actually dismissed in a secret

:00:48.:00:52.

The precise charges against her remain secret,

:00:53.:00:58.

The first was that she'd been head of recruitment for the BBC's Persian

:00:59.:01:04.

The second was that she's married to a British spy.

:01:05.:01:12.

Because of the media campaign that I've been doing and the fact

:01:13.:01:16.

there was 500 pages in her file of media coverage that we'd done,

:01:17.:01:19.

so protesting your innocence is what proves your guilt.

:01:20.:01:21.

Nazanin's supporters have campaigned vigorously on her behalf,

:01:22.:01:26.

highlighting her anguish at being separated from her

:01:27.:01:29.

two-year-old daughter Gabriella, who's now living with Nazanin's

:01:30.:01:32.

Richard says today's news proves Nazanin is a bargaining chip

:01:33.:01:38.

Now it feels like, gosh, there's a whole new phase and I need

:01:39.:01:43.

to find some new energy and a new strategy going forwards

:01:44.:01:46.

Richard Ratcliffe ending that report.

:01:47.:01:51.

Southern Rail says it hopes to run more than 70% of services tomorrow

:01:52.:01:54.

despite a strike by conductors belonging to the RMT union.

:01:55.:01:59.

The 24-hour stoppage is about whether guards or drivers

:02:00.:02:02.

Aslef, the other union involved in the dispute,

:02:03.:02:06.

has suspended industrial action planned for this week, and is to

:02:07.:02:09.

People in Worthing who failed to block a 15-storey development

:02:10.:02:15.

on the seafront say it will destroy the character of the town.

:02:16.:02:20.

The council says it's the only way to regenerate the old Aquarena site.

:02:21.:02:23.

Michael and Jane Janney have been enjoying the winter

:02:24.:02:29.

This drawing shows their home next to the new development.

:02:30.:02:35.

What it doesn't reveal is the 15-storey block at its heart

:02:36.:02:39.

that they fear is about to quite literally cast a shadow

:02:40.:02:42.

Presumably, when the tower block is up, it will take sunlight

:02:43.:02:49.

from our balcony from about three o'clock in the afternoon,

:02:50.:02:53.

This week, councillors took the plunge in granting permission

:02:54.:02:57.

for the development on the site of this former swimming pool.

:02:58.:03:01.

Now closed and derelict, nobody denies the site

:03:02.:03:05.

Local politicians out meeting electors say what's now been given

:03:06.:03:11.

I think it's a good thing for Worthing and it provides some

:03:12.:03:17.

I think it's good for the economy as well and, finally,

:03:18.:03:21.

it's a site that is in desperate need of regeneration and my personal

:03:22.:03:24.

view is those plans we have seen look really good.

:03:25.:03:30.

Nobody will be surprised to find that the developers have expressed

:03:31.:03:32.

pleasure that the decision has gone the way it has.

:03:33.:03:35.

What they say is they now intend to work with the council and local

:03:36.:03:39.

people to ensure that what arises from the site beyond us

:03:40.:03:42.

here is something that everyone in Worthing can be proud of.

:03:43.:03:48.

On to football and Southampton's match against Leicester is on Match

:03:49.:03:50.

of the Day coming up next, so if you don't want to know

:03:51.:03:54.

It was a welcome win for Saints with goals from Ward-Prowse,

:03:55.:03:59.

Rodriguez and Tadic securing a 3-0 victory, lifting them

:04:00.:04:01.

OK, let's see what the weather's got in store for the start

:04:02.:04:07.

Bee Tucker has our regional forecast.

:04:08.:04:09.

Well, we've had some fairly bright conditions through today

:04:10.:04:13.

but we've got some mist, some fog already starting to form

:04:14.:04:16.

out there and temperatures dropping rapidly, so this fog

:04:17.:04:18.

Some parts could escape without a frost and without the fog

:04:19.:04:26.

particularly the further west you are.

:04:27.:04:28.

That fog is going to be slow to clear, if at all.

:04:29.:04:33.

Thick, dense, particularly through rush hour tomorrow.

:04:34.:04:35.

There will be some sunshine but the fog will have an impact

:04:36.:04:38.

on the temperatures, holding them back at just three

:04:39.:04:40.

or four degrees and any brightness, though, highs of eight or nine.

:04:41.:04:43.

There's more on the BBC news website and the news channel

:04:44.:04:49.

Our next updates are in BBC Breakfast just before 6.30am.

:04:50.:04:52.

Good evening. If you are dreading the trudge back to work in the

:04:53.:05:13.

morning I'm not going to help matters. There is the prospect of

:05:14.:05:18.

nasty, freezing fog over the next couple of days. Quite localised but

:05:19.:05:24.

tricky out there on the roads. Disruption possible. Check out

:05:25.:05:26.
