Police are appealing for information after a woman in her thirties was sexually assaulted while watching Hitman: Agent 47 - at the CINEMA.

Only 14 people are thought to have attended the late-night showing of the action thriller where the assault took place at the Odeon cinema in Bath.

A 44-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and another assault relating to the same victim, which happened later that night in Corsham in Wiltshire.

Police want to speak to cinema-goers who went to the 10.30pm screening of the film on Saturday 29 August.


Ask Ellie update: Week 1 Update

Letitia Bright Asked Ellie about autism

Hi ellie my question is why is the help available for autistic children diagnosis first? So many families are left with little or no help while awaiting the ASD assessment. The assessment waiting lists are so long and meanwhile parents and children are left to suffer.

I also have another question why has the criteria for Educational health care plans gone up? Many children with special needs are not getting the help they desperately need and are not reaching their full potential. Surely there must be a way for parents and children to get the help they deserve without the constant fight and battles with health professionals and schools. We already have so much to deal with.

– Question via Facebook

Hi Letitia

Just to let you know I have been in touch with The National Autism Society They tell me they have been inundated with questions like yours and have started a campaign to get earlier diagnosis.

They tell me they are finding the right person to answer your question and will be in touch asap.

I am also speaking to people locally.

Will let you know when I have more. Ellie

A fleet of "number two" buses - powered entirely by poo - could be picking up passengers in Bristol next year.

Wessex Bus is hoping to run a 20-strong fleet in Bristol while rival operator First West of England is looking to bring 110 poo-powered double deckers to the city.

The UK's first ever bio-bus, powered by methane gas extracted from human waste, began services in the city last year on the appropriately named No 2 route.

The route currently runs from Cribbs Causeway to Stockwood.
