The NHS in Devon is facing the biggest budget

:00:13.:00:15.

deficit in England - more than ?550 million by 2020.

:00:16.:00:19.

Tonight hundreds of people attended a meeting in North Devon

:00:20.:00:22.

to voice their fears over possible cuts to local health services,

:00:23.:00:26.

the Save Our Hospitals Services group.

:00:27.:00:30.

Meanwhile, the government insists the NHS is adequately funded.

:00:31.:00:33.

Alongside the enthusiasm, there are other emotions, too,

:00:34.:00:50.

including concern and fear about the potential changes

:00:51.:00:53.

to services at North Devon District Hospital.

:00:54.:00:55.

How dare they contemplate cutting services.

:00:56.:01:05.

The risk is that we'll lose consultant led maternity,

:01:06.:01:07.

paediatrics, neonatal, that they go not to Exeter but to Plymouth.

:01:08.:01:13.

I was born in 1944 and I felt safe, I've always felt safe,

:01:14.:01:20.

and I think from now on people are not going to feel safe.

:01:21.:01:23.

My children or grandchildren are not going to be safe.

:01:24.:01:25.

If we are ill, we are not sure we are going to be looked

:01:26.:01:29.

The financial pressures facing the NHS were highlighted

:01:30.:01:32.

at this latest meeting at the Save Our Hospital Services

:01:33.:01:37.

campaign, but the government insists the NHS is adequately funded.

:01:38.:01:39.

Our health and social care system is in meltdown and once again this

:01:40.:01:48.

week we had the spectacle of the Prime Minister

:01:49.:01:51.

and the government in total denial about the scale of the problem

:01:52.:01:54.

and in an open war with the head of the NHS, Simon Stephens,

:01:55.:01:57.

who challenged the government's claim to put more money in.

:01:58.:02:01.

NHS organisations in Devon say they are reviewing

:02:02.:02:03.

services to make them safe, sustainable and affordable,

:02:04.:02:05.

and insist no decisions have yet been made.

:02:06.:02:11.

More meetings are planned like this across North Devon

:02:12.:02:13.

A look now at some of the other stories in the South West tonight.

:02:14.:02:22.

Three men have appeared in court charged with the murder

:02:23.:02:24.

The body of 31-year-old Stephen Bull, who was living

:02:25.:02:29.

at a shelter for the homeless, was found in a park

:02:30.:02:31.

The three made no plea and will appear before

:02:32.:02:35.

A Devon man who was shot in the head during an armed robbery

:02:36.:02:42.

Chris Tester intervened when his parents were being threatened

:02:43.:02:48.

with a gun at their cafe in Antigua on Christmas Day.

:02:49.:02:51.

He's currently being treated at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital.

:02:52.:02:56.

The family of Josh Clayton are writing to the Chief Constable

:02:57.:02:59.

of Devon and Cornwall Police to request that another

:03:00.:03:01.

force carries out a fresh investigation into his death.

:03:02.:03:06.

The 23-year-old from Taunton was found dead on Tresco in 2015.

:03:07.:03:10.

The inquest into his death collapsed earlier this week.

:03:11.:03:18.

Two sisters have just watched a film of themselves for the first

:03:19.:03:21.

time more than 60 years after it was made.

:03:22.:03:23.

Back in the 1950s they took part in a production

:03:24.:03:26.

All these years later they have finally seen it and,

:03:27.:03:34.

as Clare Woodling reports, it was an emotional moment.

:03:35.:03:39.

Great words are shouted here, lines from the greatest

:03:40.:03:41.

of the rock is one of Europe's loveliest theatres,

:03:42.:03:45.

the Minack Open Air Theatre on the cliffs of Porthcurno.

:03:46.:03:48.

1955, and preparations are underway for Macbeth.

:03:49.:03:51.

Among the cast, 24-year-old Philippa Kendall Carpenter.

:03:52.:03:53.

Here's her younger sister Vivian, who also has a role.

:03:54.:04:09.

60 years on, and memories have come alive as the pair

:04:10.:04:12.

in a newly discovered film for the first time.

:04:13.:04:17.

I think that's Don McLeod, who was so good looking.

:04:18.:04:20.

He's putting blood on his sword, bless him.

:04:21.:04:22.

Oh, he did have a terrible time with the girls.

:04:23.:04:27.

Oh, I went out with him a couple of times!

:04:28.:04:30.

They had Macbeth's head wrapped up in a cloth and they dropped it

:04:31.:04:38.

on the stage with a dreadful thud, and it was the biggest turnip

:04:39.:04:42.

This huge turnip, every night, kerthump!

:04:43.:04:49.

Reminiscing on that summer's production, secrets surface.

:04:50.:04:55.

Yes, somebody came and followed me, evidently.

:04:56.:05:05.

I was swimming and paddling away and suddenly I was aware

:05:06.:05:12.

She doesn't know who followed me.

:05:13.:05:16.

A teenager from Cornwall is preparing to take on an incredible

:05:17.:05:30.

Next month 13-year-old Siam Juntakeret from Bodmin

:05:31.:05:37.

is planning to cycle 3,000 miles across Australia.

:05:38.:05:41.

He's hoping to do it in just 30 days and beat

:05:42.:05:43.

Siam will be raising money for two local charities and says

:05:44.:05:47.

apart from the heat, he thinks it will be fine.

:05:48.:05:58.

Ice is our main problem overnight tonight.

:05:59.:06:04.

We have a widespread frost and tomorrow is not a bad day.

:06:05.:06:07.

After that frosty start we will see some sunshine.

:06:08.:06:09.

More cloud later in the day, also the risk of showers.

:06:10.:06:12.

The biggest problem will be low temperatures tonight and,

:06:13.:06:14.

certainly on untreated roads and pavements, the risk of ice,

:06:15.:06:17.

with temperatures down as low as -1 to -3.

:06:18.:06:19.

Overnight there is a chance of a shower.

:06:20.:06:21.

A few more to come, I think, later in the night,

:06:22.:06:25.

Lengthy clear skies in between these showers means a fairly low

:06:26.:06:29.

Brisk north-west winds so perhaps the coast not faring

:06:30.:06:35.

too badly but inland, particularly parts of

:06:36.:06:37.

Dorset and Somerset, here we are going to see

:06:38.:06:39.

temperatures at or a couple of degrees below freezing.

:06:40.:06:43.

So it is cold to start with tomorrow.

:06:44.:06:45.

Hopefully we'll get some sunshine and slightly higher temperatures

:06:46.:06:47.

Winds still from the north-west and still the risk of showers.

:06:48.:06:51.

Those showers perhaps more frequent through the afternoon.

:06:52.:06:54.

Temperatures getting up to about 9 degrees

:06:55.:06:57.

On Sunday, generally a lot of cloud around,

:06:58.:07:01.

and it's capable of producing a few spots of light rain or drizzle.

:07:02.:07:05.

But the big story on Sunday is temperatures are finally back

:07:06.:07:07.

into double figures, at 10-11 degrees.

:07:08.:07:10.

Next week, more cloud around again on Monday,

:07:11.:07:13.

Tuesday, though, it starts to cool down again and Tuesday night

:07:14.:07:18.

That's all from the late Kim. Goodbye. -- team.

:07:19.:07:31.

5-6 is the best we will have. It stays cold into the beginning of

:07:32.:07:33.

next week as well stop Good evening, a cold, icy

night, but some others have other concerns. This was the scene earlier

:07:44.:07:49.

today, huge waves crashing on to the shoreline at Whitley Bay. We still

:07:50.:07:53.

have the peak of the high tide to come in other parts. This is the

:07:54.:07:59.

flood line number. It's if you have any concerns. The worst of the wind

:08:00.:08:05.

slowly comes -- subsiding. Wintry showers across the North of Scotland

:08:06.:08:09.

and some filtering well inland across the Midlands, giving a light

:08:10.:08:14.

dusting in some places. An icy night, temperatures widely close to

:08:15.:08:17.

or below freezing, particularly where you
