  5. Murder witness thought Tanis Bhandari was 'punched, not stabbed'

    John Danks, BBC Spotlight

    A witness to the murder of a Plymouth builder says he thought the victim was only punched, not stabbed.

    Builder Tanis Bhandari was stabbed on New Year's Day by Ryan Williams, 22, from Plymouth. Williams admitted the charge earlier, halfway through his trial at Plymouth Crown Court. Donald Pemberton, 21, from Plymouth, also charged with murder, denies killing him Mr Bhandari.

    Witness Sean Cordon said he could only remember snippets from the night. But he recalled speaking to Mr Bhandari just after the attack and thinking he had been punched in the back before he "just collapsed in my arms." The trial continues.

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    Trapped van

    Handyman Darren Thomas said the electric bollard rose underneath his Vauxhall this morning, turning his rear axle into a "banana".

    He said the operation took so long because the part of the bollard underground bent out of shape and had to be hammered back down once his van was removed.

  7. Defence Review: What about the South West?

    Martyn Oates, Political Editor

    As well as laying out the government's £178bn defence spending plans for the next decade, the prime minister has also been clear that savings need to be made as well.

    In terms of places like Devonport, there are a lot of civilian jobs attached to that.

    The naval base's importance to Plymouth and the surrounding area is also based on its contribution to the local economy, and there'll be some concern as to what the future for those civilian and support jobs is.

  8. Arts health charity hopes legacy 'can be take forward'

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    Cornwall's Arts for Health charity, which has announced it is to close, says it hopes other organisations and individuals can "take forward the legacy" of its work.

    It said that the "increasingly challenging economic climate for small charities has required some tough decisions to be made", when it announced its closure after 14 years. 

    It added: "Our decision in no way reflects upon our staff, who have been ceaseless in their efforts to try to ensure a future for the organisation."

  9. Nicholson slams Torquay defence

    Brent Pilnick, BBC Sport

    Kevin Nicholson

    The Gulls have conceded seven goals in two games after they were thrashed 4-0 by Barrow last week and are now third-from-bottom of the division. 

    "The three goals this week and a couple of the goals last week are just poor defending and individual errors. That's where people have got to stand up and be counted," he said. 

  10. Fire dog Nelson 'popular with everyone'

    Local Live

    A fire dog was "popular with everyone he met", the Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service has said.

    Nelson, the seven-and-a-half-year-old springer spaniel, has died after a short illness. The service said his role "extended beyond fire investigation", with him often helping schoolchildren learn about fire safety. He also had a Twitter account with almost 4,000 followers.

    Senior officers told the BBC the meeting was a lesson-learning exercise to avoid such trouble at future games. CCTV footage will also be analysed to see if prosecutions or banning should can be brought.

  17. HIV patient numbers up 33% since 2010

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    There are 196 people currently accessing care for HIV in the county, up from 148 in 2010.

    Conrwall Council said newly diagnosed HIV incidence was still very low in Cornwall, at 2.8 per 100,000 compared to England's average of 12.3, but that one in five people with the virus did not know they had it, and it was supporting HIV Testing Week to encourage people to get tested.

  20. 'More action needed' to cut malnutrition hospital admissions

    BBC Radio Devon

    More action is needed to prevent hospital admissions for people suffering from malnutrition, the government says.   

    The South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust saw 143 such cases from 2012-14, and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust 132, a Freedom of Information request by the BBC shows.

    The Department of Health said: "Malnutrition is unacceptable. Though the rising figures we have seen may well be in part due to better diagnosis and detection, even more action is required."

  21. Van left suspended on automatic bollard

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    A van has been left suspended on a controversial automatic bollard in Falmouth.

    They're used in town centres to stop traffic, but drivers with permits - such as taxis, buses and delivery drivers - can electrically lower them to the ground, and they will rise once the vehicle has passed.

    Van stuck on bollard

    However, driver Darren Thomas's vehicle has been stuck in his van on top of the bollard since about 11:00. Mr Thomas said Cornwall Council had contacted but had yet to get him down, and that his axle had been left "like a banana".

    Scott Bingham, BBC Spotlight

    The Prime Minister could announce some big news for the South West later during a review of defence and security.

    Some believe there's a slim chance maritime patrol aircraft could be based at RAF St Mawgan in Cornwall. There's also a chance the base might be used to test or operate drones - an expected area of growth.

    HMS Raleigh

    Another important issue is manpower. If there are any plans for expansion of recruitment - particularly in the Navy - that could be good news for HMS Raleigh in Torpoint, and possibly even the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre at Lympstone.

  23. Tucker 'bitterly disappointed' with Launceston loss

    Brent Pilnick, BBC Sport

    Launceston head coach Jimmy Tucker was 'bitterly disappointed' after his side lost 29-26 at Bury St Edmunds. 

    Jimmy Tucker

    Launceston led 19-12 Richard Friend, Ben Hilton and Jamie Salter's first-half tries, but the home side scored three times after the break before Friend got a second late on. 

    "I'm bitterly disappointed, they deserved better. Our forwards put in a hell of a shift, worked really hard and I suppose we've got to give credit to Bury St Edmunds' defence, it held out really well," he said.

    - Diane Turner McParland Much like the pedestrian crossing that was put in St Just a few years ago. Not sure if it actually got finished before it was removed.

    - Damian Dawes: I expect they will spend several thousands changing it back next. Was it Mr.Pollard that Said to the listeners"give it a chance to work and once we have we will review it" ..the thing is ,there was a lot of money wasted on giving something a chance. If the money came straight out of your pocket,or out of your business, would you waste it on ifs or buts?
