Good evening.

0:00:130:00:15

Police in Cornwall say a mutilated lamb could have been the victim

0:00:150:00:18

of a cult-style attack.

0:00:180:00:20

The lamb, called Bounce because of its friendly nature,

0:00:200:00:22

was found with its ears and tail cut off at a farm near Wadebridge.

0:00:220:00:26

It died a few days later - its owner has described

0:00:260:00:29

the attack as barbaric.

0:00:290:00:30

John Henderson reports.

0:00:300:00:36

So both ears have been removed and both ears have been removed tied

0:00:360:00:44

to the body of the lamb on each side and then the TAIL of the lamb had

0:00:440:00:48

been removed at the base very close and tied to the body.

0:00:480:00:51

And it was cleanly removed as well.

0:00:510:01:00

The blue spots show WHERE the wounds were disinfected but a few

0:01:000:01:03

days later he died.

0:01:030:01:04

I was really upset because he was a really nice and friendly lamb.

0:01:040:01:07

And he was really cute.

0:01:070:01:11

Since she began breeding pedigree Hampshire Township in 2005,

0:01:110:01:15

the farmer has never seen anything like it.

0:01:150:01:19

What do you think about the person that has done this?

0:01:190:01:22

That they are a bit sick.

0:01:220:01:24

Who could go in and brutally attack a little animal, it was only a baby,

0:01:240:01:28

three weeks old or any animal, for that fact.

0:01:280:01:30

I can't believe it.

0:01:300:01:34

I still can't believe it to think what he went through.

0:01:340:01:39

Chapel Farm is near Wadebridge and police are keen to speak

0:01:390:01:46

to a man seen near the lambing fields around midnight days before

0:01:460:01:49

Bounce was attacked.

0:01:490:01:50

If anybody can come up with any suggestions,

0:01:500:01:53

they are aware of again we would be interested in receiving information.

0:01:530:01:56

Bounce was named because of his warm and friendly nature.

0:01:560:01:59

Police hope his attack was an isolated incident.

0:01:590:02:08

One of the largest emergency fire exercises ever held in Devon has

0:02:080:02:11

been staged in Plymouth today.

0:02:110:02:12

Around 200 people were involved including fire fighters,

0:02:120:02:14

the police and actors.

0:02:140:02:18

The aim was to prepare crews for tackling fires in the region's

0:02:180:02:21

increasing number of tall buildings.

0:02:210:02:22

Jane Chandler reports.

0:02:220:02:29

There has been a big explosion and now there is a fire

0:02:290:02:32

on the seventh floor of the civic Centre in Plymouth.

0:02:320:02:35

Time to pause and plan before heading in.

0:02:350:02:37

This lintel on the door has collapsed.

0:02:370:02:40

Around 30 people are hurt.

0:02:400:02:44

One person is dead.

0:02:440:02:47

The challenge now is to find the living.

0:02:470:02:50

Basically there has been a fire and explosion and fire is heavily

0:02:500:02:54

involved in the seventh floor.

0:02:540:02:56

We have casualties inside.

0:02:560:02:59

Thick smoke makes it impossible to see the casualties.

0:02:590:03:03

Thermal images are employed and they find them and they are dragged out.

0:03:030:03:10

Sheer physical stress can be a killer in this situation.

0:03:100:03:16

We have a firefighter in the middle of a heart attack.

0:03:160:03:18

This is a twist in the exercise, this is something that none

0:03:180:03:21

of the firefighters were expecting to encounter today.

0:03:210:03:24

It has been known within the fire service to happen operational

0:03:240:03:28

incidents so are trained to deal with it and have defibrillators and

0:03:280:03:31

equipment to handle it at the time.

0:03:310:03:36

In the same way we would have to judge how they react

0:03:360:03:38

to a fire situation, they need to judge to one

0:03:380:03:46

of their own becoming ill and dealing with

0:03:460:03:48

that at the same time.

0:03:480:03:49

It has been a steep learning curve in a high-rise,

0:03:490:03:51

high risk situation for all of those taking part today.

0:03:510:04:00

At all levels we have seen crews engaging with the process

0:04:000:04:02

which is fantastic but also engage with the learning elements

0:04:020:04:05

from the firefighters on the floors tackling the fire right down

0:04:050:04:07

to the command element so we have tested all those elements

0:04:070:04:10

in a realistic scenario.

0:04:100:04:13

The next task to share what they have learned with fire

0:04:130:04:16

crews not just in the south-west but across the whole country

0:04:160:04:19

to save even more lives.

0:04:190:04:29

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue Group were called

0:04:320:04:34

to Polpeor Cove and found a young female dolphin in a rocky pool being

0:04:340:04:38

helped by members of the pubilc.

0:04:380:04:39

A vet checked her over and found she was well enough to be set free.

0:04:390:04:44

Due to the rocky conditions it was decided to take her

0:04:440:04:46

to a neighbouring beach for the release.

0:04:460:04:50

Onto rugby and Jersey took on Nottingham in very wet

0:04:500:04:52

conditions at Lady Bay.

0:04:520:05:02

Time for the weather now - here's Emily.

0:05:050:05:09

Good evening it has been very wet across the south-west today

0:05:090:05:11

and we are continuing with unsettled weather throughout the week ahead.

0:05:110:05:16

Very mild though the rain clears through tonight

0:05:160:05:19

leaving behind cloud, drizzle and a fair amount of mist

0:05:190:05:21

and fog through the night.

0:05:210:05:24

These are the overnight minimum temperatures

0:05:240:05:26

of between eight and 11 degrees.

0:05:260:05:31

Quite a mild start to Monday morning,

0:05:310:05:33

a grey and murky start as well

0:05:330:05:34

and we will see further outbreaks spreading from the west the day.

0:05:340:05:37

Mist and fog may linger in places throughout tomorrow

0:05:370:05:39

but another mild day, temperatures up to 12 degrees

0:05:390:05:42

with southerly wind.

0:05:420:05:43

Tuesday, similar, cloudy and mild with outbreaks of rain.

0:05:430:05:47

Dry and bright for a time on Wednesday.
