Good evening, I'm Edward Sault. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time
A Royal Navy warship based in Portsmouth has rescued 14 sailors
after they became stranded in the Atlantic ocean.
The Clyde Challenger was returning to the UK and got caught up
in strong winds and heavy seas which snapped the mast.
HMS Dragon was diverted 500 miles and reached the yacht
She provided what's been described as "life-saving
assistance" to the 14 sailors - 13 of whom were British.
We got hit with a wave which knocked us over.
Basically the top of the mast hit the water and snapped.
The crew just did what we are trained to do.
It was quite a big swell so every time the boat went away,
we'd lose sight of it before we could see what was going
on with our own boat, so it was really quite rough.
A woman in her twenties is in a critical condition
after falling from the third floor of a block of flats in Southampton.
It happened shortly after 10.45 yesterday morning
The woman was discovered on the ground by police
She was taken to Southampton General Hospital and officers are appealing
for anyone who witnessed what happened.
A woman from Sussex has been given a 15-month sentence
after threatening to kill horses at a yard in Shoreham.
Kirsty Geoghegan, who's 25 and from Hove, tried to blackmail
stable owners at Buddies Yard into paying her ?5,000.
The horses had previously had their tails and manes cut off
The stable owners say they're relieved the judge handed out
Absolutely gobsmacked that she got a prison sentence but very ecstatic
that justice has been served. We went through a horrendous,
absolutely horrendous... The messages we receive it and
everything we went through. Ambitious plans to completely change
the structure of local government in Dorset have been condemned by one
of the county's most Six of the county's nine local
authorities have backed plans to replace the current set-up
with two unitary authorities, but the other three councils
want to keep things as they are. This is a very crude map of Dorset's
current nine council areas with the economic powerhouse of Bournemouth
and pot clean to merge with Christchurch and the other five
councils locked together to form a separate military authority in the
West. Recently three of the smaller councils have all voted no to being
merged with their neighbours. Cheers greeted the merger plans being
rejected by Christchurch councillors. It's not democratic.
People want to keep control of their own destiny. Bournemouth and Paul
can join together if they want to and meanwhile we have a combined
authority which is a strong business voice for Dorset. In Purbeck the
council vote on the mergers were split 11 - 11, the plans rejected by
the casting vote. It is a bad idea. The bigger councils will get all the
money and we will not get anything. Do mergers work? Democratically
there will be less councillors so less representatives of people,
perhaps a conservative stranglehold. This is not rocket science. It works
well in Cornwall, Wiltshire. Nine councils cannot be the best optimum
arrangement of delivering public service in accountancy the size of
Dorset. The final decision rests with the secretary of state for
communities and government. There is cause for referendum.
Football and Southampton got their first points away
from home in 2017 as they beat Sunderland 4-0 yesterday.
Manolo Gabbiadini scored twice in his second
Southampton appearance - his first goal came
The Italian scored again just before the break with a brilliant turn
It was perfect preparation for their next game -
the League Cup final against Manchester United
Let's get the weather forecast. Quite a cloudy night too, with a few
showers as well. The showers will start to ease off as we had through
the night. The cloud will break up, so clear skies to be had later on,
temperatures of three or 4 degrees. Quite a strong easterly wind and
that will make things feel quite cold as we had through Monday
despite the fact we will see plenty of dry and find weather. The
sunshine finally making an appearance. Temperatures around nine
or 10 Celsius. But add on the strength of the easterly wind and it
will feel cold. Through the rest of the week, there are some showers to
take us into Tuesday. They will ease off and then we will see Cryer,
brighter weather with highs of 10 degrees. I am back at 11:20pm. Have
a lovely evening. Goodbye. Good evening, dull, grey, cold,
miserable. And that's just me! The weather hasn't been great leader for
most of us, it will be chilly out there with this nagging easterly
breeze, wetter weather for Northern Ireland, by the end of the night
most of the dampness across parts of Eastern Scotland and North East
England, most of the high ground Luus will have faded away as well.
