The NHS in Devon is facing the biggest budget


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


Tonight hundreds of people attended a meeting in North Devon


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


the Save Our Hospitals Services group.


Meanwhile, the government insists the NHS is adequately funded.


Alongside the enthusiasm, there are other emotions, too,


including concern and fear about the potential changes


to services at North Devon District Hospital.


How dare they contemplate cutting services.

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


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

The financial pressures facing the NHS were highlighted


at this latest meeting at the Save Our Hospital Services


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


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

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


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


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


NHS organisations in Devon say they are reviewing


services to make them safe, sustainable and affordable,


and insist no decisions have yet been made.


More meetings are planned like this across North Devon


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

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


time more than 60 years after it was made.

Great words are shouted here, lines from the greatest

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


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

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


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


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

Siam will be raising money for two local charities and says


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


Ice is our main problem overnight tonight.


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


After that frosty start we will see some sunshine.


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


The biggest problem will be low temperatures tonight and,


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


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


Overnight there is a chance of a shower.


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


Lengthy clear skies in between these showers means a fairly low


Brisk north-west winds so perhaps the coast not faring


too badly but inland, particularly parts of


Dorset and Somerset, here we are going to see


temperatures at or a couple of degrees below freezing.


So it is cold to start with tomorrow.


Hopefully we'll get some sunshine and slightly higher temperatures


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


Those showers perhaps more frequent through the afternoon.


Temperatures getting up to about 9 degrees


On Sunday, generally a lot of cloud around,


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

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


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


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


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


or below freezing, particularly where you
