Now on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:13.

A major town centre development in Dorchester has been waived through,

:00:14.:00:17.

despite the fact that the 180 new properties will not include

:00:18.:00:20.

Last night the council gave planning permission to a scheme to convert

:00:21.:00:27.

The entire site will now go for high-end housing,

:00:28.:00:33.

after the developers argued affordable units would

:00:34.:00:36.

Cells designed to confine but soon an address to impress.

:00:37.:00:46.

There will be 60 apartments in the old prison plus 125

:00:47.:00:49.

No affordable homes will be on offer.

:00:50.:01:00.

It's all very well having wealthy, retirees coming here,

:01:01.:01:03.

or wealthy families moving in, that's great.

:01:04.:01:06.

Where is the provision for local people?

:01:07.:01:14.

Developers plan to renovate the old Victorian prison,

:01:15.:01:17.

They've successfully argued that including affordable housing

:01:18.:01:22.

West Dorset Council usually insists on 35% affordable homes.

:01:23.:01:28.

Developers can negotiate that down but no allocation is very unusual.

:01:29.:01:34.

So what does the council have to say to local people

:01:35.:01:36.

We would have loved to have seen affordable homes on the site.

:01:37.:01:41.

We are trying our hardest to put forward more homes and affordable

:01:42.:01:44.

As part of our policy, we are doing everything

:01:45.:01:49.

I think there should be affordable housing for the young people.

:01:50.:01:54.

I mean, they are never going to get on the ladder,

:01:55.:01:57.

You get a lot of people now from other places

:01:58.:02:00.

and they are buying just to rent out and they don't give

:02:01.:02:03.

Quite disappointing, I think, because you've got to have

:02:04.:02:08.

affordable housing for local people because otherwise they are not going

:02:09.:02:10.

to be able to live in the locality, especially young people.

:02:11.:02:13.

Regeneration begins now but not without controversy.

:02:14.:02:36.

A man from Cornwall has given up his right to anonymity to tell

:02:37.:02:43.

Spotlight how he was drugged and abused as a child.

:02:44.:02:47.

In his moving account, which you may find upsetting,

:02:48.:02:49.

Justin Stubbings describes how he was injected with a drug

:02:50.:02:53.

which left him unable to move whilst he was a patient

:02:54.:02:56.

So far almost 100 people have contacted the police to say

:02:57.:03:03.

they were also abused as children at Aston Hall in Derbyshire.

:03:04.:03:09.

Justin Stubbings lives a quiet life in Cornwall

:03:10.:03:11.

Back in the '60s he was a patient at a psychiatric hospital,

:03:12.:03:18.

Aston Hall in Derbyshire, after he had attempted

:03:19.:03:21.

The superintendent psychiatrist at Aston Hall was Dr Kenneth Milner.

:03:22.:03:28.

One night Justin Stubbings says he was taken to a small padded room

:03:29.:03:31.

He injected me in this arm with what I now know is sodium

:03:32.:03:38.

amytal, then he injected me in the other arm with something else

:03:39.:03:43.

And then placed a pad over my face and dropped ether underneath my nose

:03:44.:03:52.

and then I fell backwards into sort of semiconsciousness.

:03:53.:03:58.

He said I'm going to take you back to your childhood.

:03:59.:04:02.

He would take me back to a memory where my brother

:04:03.:04:05.

And I was screaming and rolling about and trying to stop this

:04:06.:04:12.

from hitting me and I can remember that vividly.

:04:13.:04:14.

Did it feel like you were being hit at the time?

:04:15.:04:17.

And I can remember putting my hands behind me to try and stop

:04:18.:04:22.

When he woke up he says he found his hands had been tied

:04:23.:04:27.

Medical records show that Justin Stubbings had been

:04:28.:04:31.

injected with sodium amytal, described as a truth drug,

:04:32.:04:35.

but even then there were concerns about this treatment and it had

:04:36.:04:38.

The police in Derbyshire have now interviewed almost 100 people

:04:39.:04:44.

who say they were illicitly drugged and abused as children

:04:45.:04:47.

They say they are now reviewing hospital records and seeking

:04:48.:04:52.

Dr Kenneth Milner, who had no training as a children's

:04:53.:04:56.

psychiatrist, worked at Aston Hall for almost 30 years before he died.

:04:57.:05:02.

Justin Stubbings says he hopes that by talking openly

:05:03.:05:04.

about his experience he will encourage

:05:05.:05:06.

Leyton Orient captain Liam Kelly has been given a six-game ban

:05:07.:05:15.

after he was charged with violent conduct by the FA during a match

:05:16.:05:20.

It relates to an incident at Home Park on Tuesday night where

:05:21.:05:25.

a ball boy was pushed to the ground in front of the away end.

:05:26.:05:29.

The 27-year-old midfielder had denied the charge.

:05:30.:05:33.

The parents of a terminally ill boy from Devon have thanked a benefactor

:05:34.:05:36.

who funded a specially adapted car to allow him to travel

:05:37.:05:40.

He has Tay-Sachs disease which means he can't move and suffers seizures.

:05:41.:05:46.

His parents didn't qualify for help under the Disability Living

:05:47.:05:49.

Allowance because Stanley is under three years old.

:05:50.:05:52.

Well, after we featured their story, an anonymous benefactor and a local

:05:53.:05:56.

Let us take a look at the weather forecast with Holly Green.

:05:57.:06:09.

Hello, good evening, we are continuing to keep a mild

:06:10.:06:11.

feel as we head through this weekend but the air is also quite moist

:06:12.:06:14.

as well, so there will be a fair bit of cloud,

:06:15.:06:17.

maybe some mist and fog patches at times.

:06:18.:06:19.

Hopefully some bright spells to be had and mostly it's dry as well.

:06:20.:06:22.

We have got high pressure in charge but we've also got some weak weather

:06:23.:06:26.

That could bring a little bit of rain but it is more likely

:06:27.:06:30.

And, indeed, we could see a few showery outbreaks of rain tonight

:06:31.:06:34.

I think the bulk of the night is dry but the risk of some low cloud,

:06:35.:06:39.

mist and fog patches, though underneath that cloud it

:06:40.:06:41.

should be fairly mild with lows down to seven or eight degrees.

:06:42.:06:44.

Into tomorrow morning, a murky start perhaps.

:06:45.:06:46.

In general, quite cloudy for tomorrow but I think some bright

:06:47.:06:49.

spells is certainly a possibility, perhaps to the north of high ground

:06:50.:06:51.

the best chance of seeing those bright spells.

:06:52.:06:53.

A couple of showers here and there, perhaps moreso along the north

:06:54.:06:56.

coast later on in the day and it is milder, temperatures

:06:57.:06:59.

easily getting into double figures, possibly 12 or 13 degrees.

:07:00.:07:01.

Similar into Sunday maybe little rain around first thing.

:07:02.:07:04.

Generally a dry day, some bright spells perhaps

:07:05.:07:06.

Again we hang onto this mild feel so where we do get some sunshine it

:07:07.:07:12.

That is it from the Friday Lake team. Next bulletin is at tomorrow

:07:13.:07:28.

evening at 5:10pm. Do have a lovely weekend. Goodbye.

:07:29.:07:32.

part of next week, we could see 16 Celsius in a few spots. Here is knit

:07:33.:07:36.

with the National output.

:07:37.:07:39.
