Your News Southampton

Amanda Davies and Thalia Pellegrini travelled to Southampton to report on the stories, pictures and e-mails that you've sent to the BBC over the last week.

Amanda went to meet James, an average 33-year-old living in Southampton, to hear just how the current economic downturn has affected him. He's currently without a job but risks losing everything.

Then, you've been sending the BBC hundreds of pictures of creepy-crawlies and we have just some of the ones you've sent plus we find out about one woman with glasses and a silly accent who's ignited the US presidential campaign.

Watch Your News every weekend on the BBC News Channel at 15.30 on Saturday and repeated at 10.30 and 23.30 every Sunday.

This episode of Your News from Southampton was first broadcast on the BBC News Channel at 15.00 on 18 October 2008.
