VIDEO: Sherlock star spotted in Bristol city centre

The cast and crew of Sherlock have been back in Bristol today.

They were filming scenes on King Street for a Christmas special of the popular TV series. Horses and carts and actors in full period costume transformed the city centre.

The stars, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Gatiss and Martin Freeman, have been spotted at various locations around the West in recent weeks.

Our cameraman nipped into a local pub to get this shot of the actor playing Dr Watson.

A school in Bristol has apologised for listing UKIP as a racist organisation in a lesson.

The party was featured on a slide of far-right groups for a discussion about tolerance. Bridge Learning Campus in Hartcliffe says it was a mistake and has taken steps to ensure it won't happen again.

The school says it has apologised to UKIP which has thanked it for its "prompt and appropriate response".

The slide was used in a class discussion about community relationships and tolerance, and was designed to stimulate debate among our pupils.

It was a mistake for UKIP to have been listed along with the other groups, and I have apologised to the party for its inclusion.

The reference has been removed from the slide and the teacher concerned has apologised and we have taken steps to ensure it will not reappear in future.

Many of the buildings on the former Elizabeth Shaw chocolate factory site in Bristol are to be demolished.

Developers say they are unsafe and need to be pulled down.

But some people nearby say they wanted to be consulted on the demolition.

What's happened is that the generator group South West have put in a sneaky application for the demolition of the buildings before completing the planning process with local people in the area who have strong feelings about exactly what should happen on this site when we're going to have to live with the consequences for decades to come.
