That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me

:00:00.:00:12.

It's almost 6.30 - you're watching East Midlands Today.

:00:13.:00:14.

Tonight, charity shops count the cost after a spate of break-ins.

:00:15.:00:18.

Money for good causes is now being spent on extra security. It is

:00:19.:00:29.

heartbreaking, instead of giving the money to people in need.

:00:30.:00:36.

If ?2 million fine for Wilko after a worker was paralysed in an accident.

And Notts County has a new owner. But can I1 hardy time the club

around? Good evening and welcome

:00:48.:00:56.

to the programme with Anne Davies First tonight, charity shops say

:00:57.:00:58.

they're having to use vital funds on extra security because of a spate

:00:59.:01:05.

of break-ins in the last few weeks. One shop in Leicestershire's been

:01:06.:01:09.

targeted seven times. Another was attacked

:01:10.:01:11.

twice in one day. It's thought some burglars

:01:12.:01:16.

are returning to carry out further raids -

:01:17.:01:18.

with the damage and losses running Charity bosses say it'll

:01:19.:01:20.

make their work saving lives and helping people

:01:21.:01:26.

in need much harder. These raiders broke

:01:27.:01:28.

into the Air Ambulance charity shop early on Saturday,

:01:29.:01:43.

looking for cash. One of them takes a torch

:01:44.:01:46.

and comes straight down They see that the safe

:01:47.:01:48.

is open with no money in, and because the alarm

:01:49.:01:52.

is still sounding, they quickly It is the seventh recent raid in the

:01:53.:02:02.

short list for an last two months. Now it is having to divert thousands

:02:03.:02:05.

of pounds from saving lives to extra security. For this to happen so many

:02:06.:02:11.

times is really upsetting and the moralising. Each mission cost around

:02:12.:02:17.

?1700. We want to invest hard work and money into that as opposed to

:02:18.:02:21.

having to turn the shop into such a secure place. Across Leicester, at

:02:22.:02:29.

this charity, Burke was struck twice on Monday, damaging the shop,

:02:30.:02:31.

breaking the till and helping themselves to biscuits. Bosses

:02:32.:02:36.

believe the same people are responsible and the effect is

:02:37.:02:40.

heartbreaking. Our whole purpose of supporting people who are very

:02:41.:02:45.

vulnerable. We do everything possible to help the community

:02:46.:02:49.

through the services we provide. By breaking in, they have damaged us,

:02:50.:02:53.

really. The cost to us is about ?3000. It is a lot of money to lose

:02:54.:02:58.

money that be going into services. In Nottingham, this charity fun

:02:59.:03:01.

after shot was targeted three times in three weeks over Christmas and

:03:02.:03:08.

New Year. -- furniture shop. The readers smashed up offices and broke

:03:09.:03:12.

a water tank as well as taking money. The overall damage was more

:03:13.:03:19.

than ?10,000. There is a belief that charities are

:03:20.:03:24.

a soft touch and there is no value to the items. But the values, we're

:03:25.:03:31.

saving people's lives. There is anger at what has happened from the

:03:32.:03:35.

public as well as support. Very sad that people want to rob charity

:03:36.:03:38.

shops, one that says lives like this. When you think that the

:03:39.:03:44.

nations go to help people who are really ill or homeless, it is a sad

:03:45.:03:50.

world. -- that the donations. Police say they are investigating the raids

:03:51.:03:51.

on these shops. Earlier, I spoke to Robin Osterley,

:03:52.:04:02.

the chief executive of the Charity Retail Association,

:04:03.:04:05.

and I asked him whether charity shops are an easy target

:04:06.:04:07.

on the high street. No, I do not think they are

:04:08.:04:10.

an easier target than any other retail establishment,

:04:11.:04:13.

to be honest. It might be that there are some

:04:14.:04:16.

people out there who think, charities, soft and fluffy,

:04:17.:04:19.

but actually, these charity shops And it is certainly not the case

:04:20.:04:24.

that they are slack on security or any of those other things

:04:25.:04:30.

that you might think. They are proper retail

:04:31.:04:33.

establishments, located very often in the high street with all the same

:04:34.:04:35.

degree of security and professionalism that

:04:36.:04:38.

other shops would have. But when security is breached,

:04:39.:04:47.

it is obviously very bad Yes, and it is bad news right

:04:48.:04:49.

across the spectrum of bad news, Not only does it have a major impact

:04:50.:04:57.

on them financially, they might lose important stock

:04:58.:05:01.

which they could otherwise sell. Their insurance

:05:02.:05:03.

premiums might go up. Crucially, there is the sapping

:05:04.:05:05.

effect that it has on the morale of staff and volunteers

:05:06.:05:07.

that is so dispiriting. Volunteers are giving of their time

:05:08.:05:11.

and effort and enthusiasm to support charities,

:05:12.:05:13.

and society as a whole in so doing. It is really depressing

:05:14.:05:17.

when someone comes along Takes away from society and takes

:05:18.:05:20.

the profits away from the charity. That is a real shame as far as staff

:05:21.:05:37.

and volunteers are concerned. OK, Robin Osterley, thank

:05:38.:05:40.

you very much indeed. A row breaks out over moves to ban

development next East Midlands Airport, but it is not without

:05:50.:05:51.

controversy. The chain store Wilko Retail has

:05:52.:05:54.

been fined ?2.2 million after a young shop worker

:05:55.:05:58.

was crushed and left paralysed. 23-year-old Corisande Collins

:05:59.:06:05.

from Glenfield now has to use a wheelchair after the accident

:06:06.:06:09.

at a Leicester branch Leicester Crown Court heard today

:06:10.:06:13.

how she only has a 1% Wilko has apologised for failing

:06:14.:06:18.

to meet heath and safety standards. Corisande Collins is a student

:06:19.:06:22.

and was working part-time at the Wilko store at

:06:23.:06:25.

the Beaumont Shopping Centre She was pulling a metal

:06:26.:06:27.

cage, overloaded with The lift wasn't level

:06:28.:06:33.

with the shop floor, and the cage and the heavy load

:06:34.:06:36.

of paint toppled onto her. She was crushed and her

:06:37.:06:40.

spine was fractured. The court heard there was a lack

:06:41.:06:43.

of training and risk assessment. The judge said Wilko had accepted

:06:44.:06:47.

the health and safety failings in this case,

:06:48.:06:50.

but he did take into account the company's annual turnover

:06:51.:06:56.

of more than ?1.4 billion when giving the fine

:06:57.:06:58.

of ?2.2 million. Corisande and her family

:06:59.:07:01.

are happy with the fine. I think it has been very difficult

:07:02.:07:05.

because she was extremely young when this happened,

:07:06.:07:07.

but I think they feel that the end of the criminal case

:07:08.:07:10.

will help her in her rehabilitation. The investigation was carried out

:07:11.:07:15.

by Leicester City Council. I think that the ?2.2 million fine

:07:16.:07:18.

reflects the seriousness of this case, where an employee has suffered

:07:19.:07:21.

devastating injuries following failings by a large

:07:22.:07:23.

company that should know better. When my officers actually

:07:24.:07:32.

investigated this case, we found significant health

and safety failings that could have This judgment today will

as a result of this accident. An inquest's heard how a house fire

:07:54.:07:58.

of those terrorism charges. And we're expecting

later this week. A row has broken out between local

:10:17.:10:20.

farmers and environmental campaigners over moves to ban

:10:21.:10:27.

a chemical found in the world's most Farmers warn a ban would

:10:28.:10:30.

push up food prices. Campaigners want it outlawed

:10:31.:10:34.

because of claims it causes cancer. Either way, the EU has just 12

:10:35.:10:36.

months to decide what to do, as our political editor,

:10:37.:10:39.

Tony Roe, reports. It is locked away safely

:10:40.:10:47.

until it is put on fields, and until very recently,

it was considered the world's Farmers like Andrew Brown,

from Rutland, say that science shows any cancer risks

from eating a balanced So we really have to get these

:11:06.:11:06.

things into perspective. The chemical is needed

to kill weeds. That helps the crops,

:11:13.:11:15.

politicians had Brexit to think about, they could not decide

:11:16.:11:21.

what to do about a report which said glyphosate is possibly

:11:22.:11:24.

carcinogenic ? cancer-causing. So, rather than nodding

:11:25.:11:30.

through its use for a further 15 years, it was extended only

:11:31.:11:33.

for 18 months. Time, then, for opponents

:11:34.:11:35.

to rally for a ban. Several studies are suggesting

that it is causing cancer and other We need to move away

from industrial sized farming. We need to protect our soil, because

:11:43.:11:47.

it is simply not sustainable. The Government says its own experts

:11:48.:11:53.

have examined the evidence and concluded that glyphosate poses

:11:54.:11:58.

no unacceptable risk to human health and they want it kept

:11:59.:12:00.

on the approved list. Andrew Brown says politicians need

:12:01.:12:04.

to take the issue seriously, If it does get taken away, then it

:12:05.:12:07.

will put the price of food up. It will mean we are going to be

:12:08.:12:13.

many more acres to grow the same amount of food,

:12:14.:12:17.

because our yields will drop down and it will be bad

:12:18.:12:19.

for the environment because we will not be

whether they were killed by the H5N8 strain after 12

carry out further tests Next this evening, work's

begun on a major new rail freight interchange

:13:29.:13:39.

on the Derbyshire-Leicestershire border, which should create over

:13:40.:13:40.

seven thousand jobs when it The development - next

:13:41.:13:42.

to East Midlands Airport - also lies close to two villages,

:13:43.:13:50.

where residents remain deeply But a third village -

:13:51.:13:53.

Kegworth - is delighted. They'll finally get the bypass

:13:54.:13:56.

they've been wanting for 80 years. The planes and local councillor

:13:57.:14:13.

Trevor Pendleton show me how close this development will be to East

:14:14.:14:16.

Midlands Airport. In the distance, ground breaking has begun on this

:14:17.:14:21.

huge project. You feel this is a good development because it will

:14:22.:14:24.

bring a lot of jobs to the area? 7000 jobs, which is terrific. In

:14:25.:14:31.

this climate at the moment, employment as it is, we need those

:14:32.:14:36.

jobs. 7000 it will bring. Sited between the airport, Main Road

:14:37.:14:40.

routes and four villages, it will occupy a substantial chunk of land.

:14:41.:14:43.

It will have a new railway line joining in line to the north and to

:14:44.:14:47.

the east, Kegworth will get a new bypass. The East Midlands Gateway

:14:48.:14:52.

will cover 700 acres were 6 million square feet of warehouse is. 900

:14:53.:14:58.

people will build it, 7000 or what they are, plus another 3000 hoped

:14:59.:15:04.

elsewhere. The railway freight terminal, taking 16 trains per day,

:15:05.:15:10.

will cut deep into the hill. This is where the real head itself will be

:15:11.:15:13.

built. The timescale for the whole project as this. January 2017, work

:15:14.:15:20.

started. By September 2017, they will start building the first

:15:21.:15:24.

buildings. By September 2018, the first buildings will be occupied by

:15:25.:15:29.

the end of 2019, the whole development including the Kegworth

:15:30.:15:37.

bypass will be finished. It is very sad for the village. It

:15:38.:15:42.

is better for traffic but it might at some of the shops and businesses.

:15:43.:15:50.

About time. It's been a long time. 1935, we were calling for it.

:15:51.:15:55.

Not everyone is happy with Deflategate way. Many villages have

:15:56.:16:01.

fought the plans. It will impact on everyone here because of the amount

:16:02.:16:04.

of traffic coming in, the people building the thing, the people

:16:05.:16:09.

working here, lorries coming in and out and people trying to get to

:16:10.:16:14.

work. Where all the cars go? Like it or loathe it, they gateway should be

:16:15.:16:16.

up and running within three years. Still to come, there

:16:17.:16:20.

are rumours we could be seeing some of the white stuff,

:16:21.:16:23.

but what does Sara think? We have two chances of seeing some

:16:24.:16:33.

snow tomorrow. One in the former showers across the North West,

:16:34.:16:36.

affecting parts of Derbyshire, but it is a far north this rain goes

:16:37.:16:40.

before it converts to snow, maybe across the East Midlands.

:16:41.:16:48.

Time for sport now on what was a very big day for Notts County -

:16:49.:16:54.

The deal for local businessman Alan Hardy to buy the Magpies

:16:55.:17:01.

Colin Hazelden's at Meadow Lane to tell us more.

:17:02.:17:07.

Yes, Notts County is a proud old club.

:17:08.:17:12.

The oldest league club, in fact, with a history including

:17:13.:17:14.

But recent decades have not been kind.

:17:15.:17:21.

The Munto finance fiasco left the club on the edge of going bust.

:17:22.:17:25.

The most recent owner, Ray Trew, saved Notts from that,

:17:26.:17:29.

but has gone through ten managers in seven years and leaves the club

:17:30.:17:32.

just one place and one point above the league's relegation zone.

:17:33.:17:35.

Now, after a long negotiation, he's sold up.

:17:36.:17:39.

Its cost him millions but Alan Hardy, a businessman who owns

:17:40.:17:41.

the Nottinghamshire Golf Club and runs the Paragon Group office

:17:42.:17:44.

He's already said there will be an announcement

:17:45.:17:47.

I asked BBC Radio Nottingham's veteran Notts County

:17:48.:17:57.

If you want proof of that, it is what has happened today.

:17:58.:18:07.

It was getting on for 12.30 this afternoon when the deal finally

:18:08.:18:10.

was agreed and he became the owner and chairman of Notts County.

:18:11.:18:17.

And within very short order, he went off to interview

:18:18.:18:23.

It is an old phrase, Colin, he does not let the grass

:18:24.:18:28.

And that is why he's talked about making

:18:29.:18:32.

an announcement tomorrow about who the manager might be.

:18:33.:18:34.

That is assuming that it run smoothly.

:18:35.:18:36.

Let's talk about this a little bit more. We have a member of the media

:18:37.:18:46.

team for Notts County here. We'll Notts County fan. You worked here

:18:47.:18:53.

previously, but our people being unfair and Notts County? There were

:18:54.:19:02.

some good times underrate true -- under Ray Trew. But unfortunately,

:19:03.:19:10.

there is a fragmented club community and we have to move on from it.

:19:11.:19:14.

Before we get to the future, the atmosphere here is the problem,

:19:15.:19:18.

isn't it? It has gotten really bad at times, particularly under Jamie

:19:19.:19:24.

Fullarton's either. It is really flat at the minute. It is like

:19:25.:19:29.

people have given up and we need a new Hope. Is Alan Hardy that all? We

:19:30.:19:38.

hope so. We need something to pull the club together and bring good

:19:39.:19:45.

times. First and foremost, we have to maintain our Football League

:19:46.:19:48.

status and bring the good times back. From the perspective of the

:19:49.:19:53.

bloggers you talk to and fellow fans, what can he do? Just keep us

:19:54.:19:58.

in the Football League at the minute and re-instil it as a fun club to

:19:59.:20:03.

support again. You come here and you're a bit down. You want to smile

:20:04.:20:09.

supporting Notts County. We have the blog setup and it has a lot of

:20:10.:20:12.

really interesting stuff at the minute with a variety of views. The

:20:13.:20:15.

common theme is that they want to smile again. Thank you for joining

:20:16.:20:17.

us. Much appreciated. Just staying with

:20:18.:20:20.

football for a moment. Mansfield Town will be the visitors

:20:21.:20:24.

here for the huge local derby this weekend and they warmed up by making

:20:25.:20:27.

Birdwatchers have been trying to catch a glimpse

:23:14.:23:18.

As these pictures from Nottinghamshire birdwatchers show,

:23:19.:23:21.

They feed on rowan berries so tend to head to towns and cities.

:23:22.:23:25.

It's unusual for the waxwings to come as far inland

:23:26.:23:27.

as Nottinghamshire and Derby, where they've also been spotted,

:23:28.:23:33.

which is why there's been a flutter of excitement.

:23:34.:23:44.

They have migrated over from Russia and they are here

:23:45.:23:46.

We usually get a big influx every few years.

:23:47.:23:49.

When they have had a good breeding season and when there

:23:50.:23:52.

is not enough food for them on the continent.

:23:53.:23:54.

We have had a lot of sightings across the county and they

:23:55.:23:57.

are scarce birds, so it is exciting that we are getting all these

:23:58.:24:00.

Beautiful. Dominic has a tale to tell you. When I was eight years old

:24:01.:24:05.

and a junior member of the RSPB, I was the first one to spot a waxwing.

:24:06.:24:14.

People will be working out how old you are if you were eight in 1969!

:24:15.:24:21.

It is a cold day tomorrow if your tractor feed birds tomorrow because

:24:22.:24:24.

it will start to turn quite slowly we think across the East Midlands.

:24:25.:24:29.

Snow and ice as the weather one in force at the moment and it is the

wind that was the main thing today. Very strong gusts out there and

Something to watch out for first thing on Friday morning with

over again for the second half of the weekend.

I was thinking, higher, higher! I do quite like a bit of snow.

:26:03.:26:11.

It wouldn't be winter without snow. It isn't so far.

:26:12.:26:16.

We'll see you for the lean years. Goodbye.

I think my political beliefs are really quite straightforward.

:26:37.:26:40.

I believe that our country needs to work for everyone.

:26:41.:26:42.

Not just for the rich, not just for the privileged,

:26:43.:26:45.

not just for those who know the right people or who've got

:26:46.:26:47.

the loudest voices, but a country that really works for everyone,

:26:48.:26:51.

has the opportunity to be who they want to be.

:26:52.:26:56.

In order to make sure that the country works for everyone,

:26:57.:26:59.

Standing up for the vulnerable, for the voiceless,

:27:00.:27:03.

against those who feel that they're strong and powerful.

:27:04.:27:08.

If you're doing the right thing, then you must do that however

:27:09.:27:11.

difficult it is, even if there seems to be an easier path to take.
