Signing off...

The digital team wish you a good night!

Today we have brought you the news of NHS Bristol's battles with A&E pressures and the life and death decisions they have had to make because of them.

We have celebrated with Anya Shrubsole and her parents on what has been the England and Bath cricketer's 'dream' achievement: the winning wicket at the World Cup.

At this time, we have no idea whether Gloucestershire's Chris Hughes has been 'triumphant' on Love Island, but we suspect Wiltshire's emergency call handlers will come out as the heroes of 999 Emergency this evening.

We leave you with this truism from @wiltshirepolice...

Have a safe night.
