We are back with the late news at 11pm.

:00:00.:00:15.

A Torquay man who was shot in the head in Antigua

:00:16.:00:18.

is being flown off the island for urgent medical treatment.

:00:19.:00:21.

Christopher Tester was seriously injured during an attempted robbery

:00:22.:00:24.

at his parents' restaurant on Christmas Day.

:00:25.:00:30.

An appeal has so far raised ?40,000 to try to get him back to the UK.

:00:31.:00:34.

A picture postcard paradise, but this idyllic beach-side

:00:35.:00:40.

restaurant became a crime scene as Chris and his parents

:00:41.:00:42.

were finishing up after serving customers on

:00:43.:00:44.

A masked armed robber held them at gunpoint and

:00:45.:00:53.

during the scuffle the 37-year-old was shot in the head.

:00:54.:00:55.

He has been in an induced coma ever since.

:00:56.:00:57.

Yes, it is true, mate, it is our Chris.

:00:58.:01:00.

Back home in Devon, friends at his local

:01:01.:01:02.

pub have been helping with the

:01:03.:01:03.

fundraising to get him urgent medical treatment as he didn't have

:01:04.:01:06.

I am led to believe the bullet went in under

:01:07.:01:14.

the left temple and exited under the right eye.

:01:15.:01:18.

They are very concerned about swelling of the

:01:19.:01:20.

brain and things like that but he's not well enough at this stage to be

:01:21.:01:26.

Enough has been donated to transfer him by

:01:27.:01:30.

helicopter to one of the nearby French islands.

:01:31.:01:35.

He was agitated yesterday so they have put him into a deeper

:01:36.:01:38.

The agitation apparently is a good sign because it means he was

:01:39.:01:44.

able to hear everything that was going on.

:01:45.:01:47.

Friends and family say Chris is a fighter but they all know the

:01:48.:01:50.

next 24 hours will be critical due to the serious nature of his

:01:51.:01:53.

Hundreds of people are still on Dartmoor tonight

:01:54.:02:00.

following an illegal rave which had to be broken up by police.

:02:01.:02:03.

Around a thousand people gathered near Bellever late last night.

:02:04.:02:05.

In sub-zero temperatures, there were fears for some revellers

:02:06.:02:08.

The police are concerned about safety.

:02:09.:02:31.

About 25 officers have been here all day, the

:02:32.:02:33.

We are living in a world that is grey if

:02:34.:02:42.

you cannot have fun and to us this fun so why is it made illegal?

:02:43.:02:46.

There have been objections to the noise.

:02:47.:02:52.

Local residents reporting it in the early hours.

:02:53.:02:57.

They have closed down voluntarily but I'm going to serve

:02:58.:03:02.

them a formal notice to ensure they cannot come back

:03:03.:03:05.

At its peak it is estimated 1000 were at the illegal rave, now

:03:06.:03:13.

they're worried for those who could get left behind.

:03:14.:03:18.

It was extremely cold last night and several of the

:03:19.:03:21.

people leaving the site have been saying they are really cold and

:03:22.:03:25.

struggling to warm up which is one of the reasons why our ambulance

:03:26.:03:28.

It is getting very cold here now, that's why the emergency services

:03:29.:03:37.

are going through the woods to look for people who are still on site and

:03:38.:03:41.

making sure no one goes unaccounted for.

:03:42.:03:42.

A search for the crew of a missing boat has been suspended in Cornwall

:03:43.:03:54.

following a distress call saying they were taking on water.

:03:55.:03:56.

lifeboat from Padstow, a coastguard team from Bude

:03:57.:03:59.

and a rescue helicopter carried out an extensive

:04:00.:04:01.

search for the Whisky One, but nothing was found.

:04:02.:04:03.

The vessel is still missing, and coastguards say they need

:04:04.:04:06.

to know if the crew made it to safety.

:04:07.:04:09.

Conditions last night were a lot worse than they are today and as you

:04:10.:04:12.

Our RNLI crew work on a voluntary basis, they put their lives at risk

:04:13.:04:20.

incident and it needs to be dealt with.

:04:21.:04:29.

A forty mile an hour speed limit could be brought

:04:30.:04:32.

in across Bodmin Moor to cut the amount of livestock deaths.

:04:33.:04:35.

Speed restrictions were previously introduced at Pensilva after 22

:04:36.:04:37.

ponies died from being hit by vehicles in just one year.

:04:38.:04:40.

It drastically cut the number of pony deaths prompting calls

:04:41.:04:44.

for a 40 mile an hour limit across the entire moor.

:04:45.:04:47.

Cornwall Council has costed a feasibility

:04:48.:04:48.

Time for the weather now, here's Sarah Farmer.

:04:49.:05:00.

Hello and a very good evening to you.

:05:01.:05:02.

We have a chilly end to a bright day and we stick with that

:05:03.:05:06.

chilly theme through the coming days.

:05:07.:05:10.

Tonight as well some patchy frost here and there and then mist

:05:11.:05:13.

and fog, especially in the east of the region where we have yellow

:05:14.:05:16.

weather warnings from the Met Office in place from midnight tonight to

:05:17.:05:29.

noon Wednesday, for the foggy conditions

:05:30.:05:30.

which could prove tricky on the

:05:31.:05:32.

Quite grey skies in the east tomorrow morning,

:05:33.:05:36.

Some of the fog could be stubborn and linger on to

:05:37.:05:40.

Some good brightness further west and in the

:05:41.:05:43.

Cloudy and cool conditions to take us up to the New Year.

:05:44.:05:49.

Good evening. It's a wintry night out there. Temperatures as low as

:05:50.:06:13.

minus three in one or two places already. For some of us the frost

:06:14.:06:17.

never shifted all day long. This shot was taken in Somerset. Tonight,

:06:18.:06:26.

some frost free places in Scotland. Fog will develop as we work through

:06:27.:06:31.

the night. It becomes wide spread. That's the issue in the morning,

:06:32.:06:34.

disruption certainly possible with a lot of people on the move. Check out

:06:35.:06:39.

local radio stations for the latest updates. Warnings in force from the

:06:40.:06:45.

Met Office. Parts of south-west Wales and England seeing early

:06:46.:06:47.

sunshine. Generally a lot of freezing fog around, which will be

:06:48.:06:51.

hard to shift through the day, as we'll see in a moment. The odd

:06:52.:06:55.

pocket of frost further north. Temperatures higher in Northern

:06:56.:06:58.

Ireland and Scotland. Drizzly rain across the western Highlands.

:06:59.:07:02.

Something of a breeze here, but further south, the winds will be

:07:03.:07:04.

light. For that
