That's all from me, stay with us on BBC One,

:00:00.:00:47.

More than 15,000 lined the streets of Exeter to pay tribute

:00:48.:00:49.

to the Chiefs rugby team who are now the best club in England.

:00:50.:00:52.

The players showed off the Premiership trophy

:00:53.:00:54.

which they won against the Wasps at Twickenham.

:00:55.:00:56.

John Henderson joined them on the parade.

:00:57.:00:58.

The best team in the country with possibly the best fans.

:00:59.:01:00.

I think it's fantastic, absolutely fantastic,

:01:01.:01:04.

the fact that we have all come together to wish them

:01:05.:01:07.

I think it's fantastic, absolutely fantastic,

:01:08.:01:14.

the fact that we have all come together to wish them

:01:15.:01:16.

It was only in 2010 that Gareth Stevenson kicked the Chiefs

:01:17.:01:23.

On Saturday, with two minutes to spare, his kick

:01:24.:01:26.

The amount of people here, it's unbelievable.

:01:27.:01:30.

Today was not just a celebration of a thrilling defeat

:01:31.:01:32.

of Wasps but a culmination of passion and perseverance.

:01:33.:01:38.

Rebranded and reborn, the Exeter Chiefs have enjoyed

:01:39.:01:40.

a rugby renaissance in the past 20 or so years.

:01:41.:01:45.

The old guard of Bath, Leicester and Harlequins,

:01:46.:01:47.

to name but three, surely have a new superpower to contend with.

:01:48.:01:53.

We have done something no other sporting club in Exeter

:01:54.:01:58.

You can see it means a lot to people.

:01:59.:02:09.

Everybody wants to be the best in sport.

:02:10.:02:15.

The victory tour ended with an official reception at the Guildhall.

:02:16.:02:27.

The support we have had for years has grown and grown.

:02:28.:02:32.

The hangovers will pass but the pride will last a lifetime.

:02:33.:02:45.

Police have said the death of a 15-year-old boy in North Devon

:02:46.:02:48.

and the hospitalisation of two other young people in Plymouth

:02:49.:02:50.

are not down to a bad batch of the drug MDMA.

:02:51.:02:53.

The teenager died in the early hours of Saturday after taking the drug

:02:54.:02:56.

In Plymouth, another young man is said to be

:02:57.:02:59.

A young woman was released from Derriford Hospital last night.

:03:00.:03:04.

Police say both are believed to have taken an overdose of the drug.

:03:05.:03:09.

Police say they're becoming increasingly concerned

:03:10.:03:12.

for the welfare of a man who's missing in Exeter.

:03:13.:03:14.

Dex Johnston was last seen near Exe Bridges in the early hours

:03:15.:03:17.

of yesterday wearing a white t-shirt and khaki coloured shorts.

:03:18.:03:21.

Teams from the Devon and Cornwall police specialist search unit have

:03:22.:03:25.

been looking for traces of the 24-year-old today

:03:26.:03:28.

Some tourism leaders and economists are predicting a labour shortage

:03:29.:03:33.

in the tourist trade in the south west after Brexit.

:03:34.:03:37.

The industry relies on many European staff and as our home affairs

:03:38.:03:40.

correspondent Simon Hall reports, there are fears there won't be

:03:41.:03:45.

This inn relies on European workers and the manager feels

:03:46.:04:00.

if the numbers coming into Britain fall after Brexit.

:04:01.:04:03.

People going to stay in a hotel or, dare I say, going into hospital

:04:04.:04:08.

might find there are less staff there because those sort

:04:09.:04:12.

of place there have European staff working there.

:04:13.:04:14.

Only a short drive away at this hotel, they believe

:04:15.:04:23.

It is quite difficult because there are not many English people that are

:04:24.:04:32.

willing to work in this eerie soap, basically we are covering their

:04:33.:04:37.

spots. We're not taking any jobs, we are just taking the jobs which are

:04:38.:04:39.

available. Only a short drive away

:04:40.:04:43.

at this hotel, they believe they will still have plenty

:04:44.:04:46.

of good-quality staff after Brexit because

:04:47.:04:48.

they pride themselves The local kids, they are either

:04:49.:04:50.

going to be customers or staff, We want them to come in and get

:04:51.:04:55.

jobs and earn money, and get developed and trained,

:04:56.:05:02.

and get a career in hospitality. We do full training here. We are

:05:03.:05:14.

constantly looking for new staff and there are lots of great new

:05:15.:05:19.

positions. And it means a lot to you to have a job like this? Yes, it

:05:20.:05:22.

does. But one south-west economist

:05:23.:05:25.

believes that overall there will be issues in finding staff

:05:26.:05:27.

for the tourist trade after Brexit. I think it's quite possible that

:05:28.:05:32.

there will be significant labour shortages after we come

:05:33.:05:34.

out of Europe. Some of the Eastern European

:05:35.:05:36.

labour won't be available, some will go back to Europe,

:05:37.:05:41.

others won't come. The Conservatives say they will

:05:42.:05:50.

deliver Brexit and reduce net emigration...

:05:51.:06:02.

The Liberal Democrats have promised...

:06:03.:06:31.

Immigration has been a contentious issue in politics in recent years

:06:32.:06:42.

but what happens with a number of people coming into the country

:06:43.:06:46.

after Brexit, the population of the south-west is still expected

:06:47.:06:50.

It is predicted to rise by up to 20% in the next ten years,

:06:51.:06:57.

according to the Office for National Statistics.

:06:58.:07:01.

The large majority of that is due to migration from the

:07:02.:07:03.

rest of the UK, not overseas and most

:07:04.:07:05.

People have lined the route of the south west rail line today

:07:06.:07:13.

to catch a glimpse of the only steam locomotive to have been built

:07:14.:07:16.

This was the Tornado as she went through Exeter today.

:07:17.:07:23.

She entered main line service in 2008 but today is the first time

:07:24.:07:28.

she crossed the Tamar into Cornwall to spend the week at the Bodmin

:07:29.:07:30.

and Wenford Railway carrying passengers for the first few

:07:31.:07:33.

Time now for a look at the weather with Alexis.

:07:34.:07:43.

We've had a good deal of dry weather today. Some brighter spells as well.

:07:44.:07:54.

There is still the risk of rain tonight and coastal mist.

:07:55.:08:00.

Temperatures stay in double figures. With a fairly light south-westerly

:08:01.:08:04.

winds. Through the morning tomorrow, there will be cloud but we hope that

:08:05.:08:08.

will thin and raped to allow for sunshine in some places. Low cloud

:08:09.:08:13.

will linger in the South West. They may be coastal mist as well. Under

:08:14.:08:21.

the cloud cover, and towards the South West, just a high 14 Celsius.

:08:22.:08:24.

A good deal of cloud tomorrow night will thin and break to allow for

:08:25.:08:30.

clearer skies, high-pressure on Wednesday and Thursday and a lot of

:08:31.:08:33.

settled weather. Sunny spells will break through the cloud cover, there

:08:34.:08:37.

maybe mist and low cloud in places and then this weather front will

:08:38.:08:45.

push through till Friday. Still uncertainty about the timing of the

:08:46.:08:48.

weather front slowed Tuesday tuned to the ball cast throughout the

:08:49.:08:54.

week. Looking ahead to the weekend, the chance of the scattered shower

:08:55.:08:57.

but there will be brighter spells as well. Cloud expected over the next

:08:58.:09:02.

few days. Brighter Sunny spells with cloud breaking and inning in places.

:09:03.:09:11.

Temperatures on Thursday and Friday up to 13 -- 18 or 19 Celsius.

:09:12.:09:16.

Goodbye.
