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

:00:10.:00:13.

The lamb, called Bounce because of its friendly nature,

:00:14.:00:18.

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

:00:19.:00:21.

Its owner has described the attack as barbaric.

:00:22.:00:26.

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

:00:27.:00:33.

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

:00:34.:00:38.

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

:00:39.:00:41.

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

:00:42.:00:51.

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

:00:52.:01:01.

Since she began breeding pedigree Hampshire Township in 2005,

:01:02.:01:10.

the farmer has never seen anything like it.

:01:11.:01:13.

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

:01:14.:01:16.

Who could go in and brutally attack a little animal -

:01:17.:01:21.

it was only a baby, three weeks old - or any animal, for that fact.

:01:22.:01:25.

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

:01:26.:01:33.

Chapel Farm is near Wadebridge and police are keen to speak

:01:34.:01:36.

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

:01:37.:01:40.

If anybody can come up with any suggestions,

:01:41.:01:45.

we would be interested in receiving information.

:01:46.:01:51.

Bounce was named because of his warm and friendly nature.

:01:52.:01:55.

Police hope his attack was an isolated incident.

:01:56.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:06.

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

:02:07.:02:11.

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

:02:12.:02:19.

on the seventh floor of the Civic Centre in Plymouth.

:02:20.:02:22.

Time to pause and plan before heading in.

:02:23.:02:27.

Blown out this area and this lintel on the door has collapsed.

:02:28.:02:31.

The challenge now is to find the living.

:02:32.:02:39.

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

:02:40.:02:44.

Thick smoke makes it impossible to see the casualties.

:02:45.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:03:04.

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

:03:05.:03:06.

high risk situation for all of those taking part today.

:03:07.:03:11.

At all levels, we have seen crews engaging with the process,

:03:12.:03:14.

which is fantastic, but also engaging with the learning elements,

:03:15.:03:17.

from the firefighters on the floors tackling the fire right down

:03:18.:03:21.

to the command element, so we have tested all those elements

:03:22.:03:25.

The next task is to share what they have learned with fire

:03:26.:03:32.

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

:03:33.:03:35.

A dolphin has been rescued after becoming stranded

:03:36.:03:45.

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue Group were called

:03:46.:03:49.

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

:03:50.:03:53.

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

:03:54.:03:59.

She was taken to a neighbouring beach for release.

:04:00.:04:04.

Time for the weather now - here's Emily.

:04:05.:04:07.

We have got unsettled weather for the week ahead,

:04:08.:04:11.

also very mild weather, and some dry weather for a time

:04:12.:04:14.

tonight after the earlier rain has cleared, but it leaves behind a lot

:04:15.:04:18.

of cloud, some patchy drizzle, also mist and fog to watch out for.

:04:19.:04:21.

These are the minimum overnight temperatures though, very mild,

:04:22.:04:24.

So a mild, misty and murky start to Monday morning.

:04:25.:04:30.

Further rain spreading in from the west throughout the day.

:04:31.:04:33.

Some mist and fog may linger for much of the day as well,

:04:34.:04:36.

but very mild temperatures, at 12 degrees tomorrow afternoon.

:04:37.:04:40.

It will be cloudy with further rain at times.

:04:41.:04:44.

A little bit drier and brighter for a time on Wednesday

:04:45.:04:47.

but then further rain looks likely on Thursday.

:04:48.:04:55.

Good evening. Very soggy down south today. A wash-out of the day for

:04:56.:05:15.

some of us. Scotland, northern parts of England, had sunshine. It's going

:05:16.:05:20.

to be cold. Already is. This is what is heading our way for the week

:05:21.:05:24.

ahead. We need our brollies out and it'll turn Wendy later in the week.

:05:25.:05:30.

The rain is clearing. I wouldn't say necessarily particularly drying out

:05:31.:05:33.

after this rain band boost towards the east, it'll stay damp but cloudy

:05:34.:05:38.

and murky in the north. Maybe freezing fog in places. It will be

:05:39.:05:43.

cold in the glands of Scotland. It could be down to -10 degrees, it's

:05:44.:05:48.

already about -5 or 6 degrees right now.

:05:49.:05:50.
