  2. 'Clear challenges' over Winchester prison - Brine

    Winchester MP Steve Brine has given his reaction to the news Winchester Prison has been put into special measures.

    In December, the Independent Monitoring Board's (IMB) annual report about the Victorian jail said it had seen increases in self-harm, drug use and violence.

    Quote Message: In the same way schools and hospitals have a strict inspection regime, and special measures status where needed, it’s right we do the same for prisons.
    Quote Message: It’s about facing up to the clear challenges Winchester has and that has to be right. I am speaking to the new Minister and will be in with the Governor soon to scrutinise their turnaround plan. from Steve Brine Winchester MP

  4. Wigan v AFC Bournemouth team news

    BBC Sport

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has confirmed he will not risk Joshua King and Junior Stanislas for their FA Cup replay against League One leaders Wigan Athletic.

    The pair have returned to training but will not feature, with Tyrone Mings and Jermain Defoe also remaining sidelined with long-term injuries.

    Wigan will be without new signing James Vaughan as the striker is cup-tied having made a substitute appearance for Sunderland against Middlesbrough in the third round.

    Forward Jamie Walker is unlikely to feature despite another of Wigan's new signings returning to training earlier than expected following a knee injury, while Shaun MacDonald remains sidelined.

  5. Appeal over Dorset sheep attack

    Police have appealed for information after sheep worrying was reported near Swanage.

    A light brown cocker spaniel, or similar breed of dog, was reported chasing sheep near Worth Matravers on Sunday afternoon.

    The dog spent up to 40 seconds attacking a sheep, which was left motionless on the floor, Dorset Police said.

    It then went back to its owner, who walked away and was joined by four other people.

    Quote Message: We would ask all dog owners to ensure their dog is on a lead whenever it is near livestock. At this time of year farmers may move livestock between fields so be extremely mindful to check. from PC Claire Dinsdale Dorset Police’s rural crime team

  6. Reunion on the cards at Southampton

    BBC Sport

    With Theo Walcott all but confirmed as an Everton player, Southampton are having to look elsewhere after missing out on the attacker - who left St Mary's for Arsenal very nearly 12 years ago to the day.

    The Daily Echo reports the Saints are still keen on Monaco's Guido Carrillo, who worked under Mauricio Pellegrino at Argentinian outfit Estudiantes.

    The 26-year-old is said to be out of favour at the Ligue 1 side having made just two starts all season, but has still scored five goals in 22 appearances this term.

  7. School recieves anti-bullying visit from Andy Day

    CBeebies star Andy Day has visited a Bournemouth school to recognise what the pupils have done as part of the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s "odd socks" campaign.

    Avonwood Primary had held a special assembly on diversity during Anti-Bullying Week last November and every pupil and member of staff wore odd socks for the occasion.

    The campaign encouraged primary schools to show children that everyone is equal and nobody should be bullied for being different.

    Quote Message: We are in a privileged position that enables us to influence younger children’s behaviour for good. Odd Socks Day was such a positive awareness raiser and it was wonderful to see schools like Avonwood get on board.” from Andy Day

  8. Guy Hedger jury sent home

    The jury in the Guy Hedger murder trial has been sent home for the night after being sent out to consider its verdicts this morning.

    The 61-year-old executive was shot dead by intruders at his home in Ashley, near Ringwood, in the early hours of 30 April 2017.

    Earlier the jury at Winchester Crown Court asked to re-hear a 999 call made by Mr Hedger's husband as well as some of his testimony about the shooting.

    Jason Baccus, 42, and Scott Keeping, 44, from Bournemouth, and Kevin Downton, 40, from Winterborne Stickland, deny murder, aggravated burglary and other offences.

    Mr Keeping's wife, Helen Cooper, 40, also known as Helen Keeping, from Poole, denies two counts of assisting an offender.

  14. Guy Hedger jury hears account of fatal shot

    A description of the fatal shooting of Dorset executive Guy Hedger has been read again to a jury at his murder trial.

    His husband Si Hedger-Cooper told how two men wearing balaclavas and armed with a shotgun broke into the couple's house in Ashley, near Ringwood, in April 2017.

    Mr Hedger-Cooper told how he pressed a button setting off loud alarms, in his testimony read out at Winchester Crown Court.

    He said immediately a shot rang out with an "almighty boom" and Mr Hedger said: "I've been hit, I've been hit."

    Three men deny murdering Mr Hedger, as well as aggravated burglary and other offences.

    The jury has resumed its deliberations after retiring to consider its verdicts this morning.

  15. Condor Ferries 'disappointed' at being dropped by Tesco Clubcard

    Condor Ferries has said it will offer discounted crossings to Tesco Clubcard holders, following the supermarket's decision to drop the carrier as a partner on its loyalty card scheme.

    Shoppers collect points for money spent with the supermarket giant and these then become vouchers which can be used for things including Condor Ferry crossings to the Channel Islands.

    Some could be used for four times or two times their value, but to "make things easier" Tesco said most are changing to three times their value. More than 50 partners were also dropped from the scheme.

    However, Tesco defended its move. "The vast majority of Clubcard customers redeem their vouchers at face value, rather than use the rewards scheme, so this change will only affect a small minority of total Clubcard customers," a spokesman told the BBC.

    Condor Ferries
    Quote Message: We have had some customers contact us who save their points just so they can take a day trip to Guernsey. It's disappointing that Tesco has decided to stop working with us without explanation or warning. We hope by providing this day trip offer, we will help to ease any disappointment caused by the move.”
