Tonight: Did a Derbyshire woman die because of a painkiller

:00:00.:00:07.

Kymberley Holden had multiple sclerosis.

:00:08.:00:09.

She collapsed at home after visiting her doctor.

:00:10.:00:18.

Living with depression, the campaigners tackling the stigma

:00:19.:00:26.

surrounding mental health. Plus, how scientists are Nottingham are using

:00:27.:00:29.

the rents to help crack down on fly-tipping. A moment he will never

:00:30.:00:38.

forget, as Leicester City reached the quarterfinals of the Champions

:00:39.:00:39.

League. An inquest has heard that

:00:40.:00:51.

a Derbyshire woman was prescribed ten times the dosage she should have

:00:52.:00:54.

been of a strong painkiller 27-year-old Kymberley Holden had

:00:55.:00:56.

been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and had been

:00:57.:01:05.

to see her doctor for The court heard that there

:01:06.:01:07.

was a high level of the painkiller in her blood when she died due

:01:08.:01:11.

to a prescription error. She had a smile for everyone, that

:01:12.:01:26.

is how Kymberley Holden's dad described her daughter today at the

:01:27.:01:31.

inquest into her sudden death two and I years ago. Temp two, a

:01:32.:01:38.

dispatch officer for an Ambulance Service, was diagnosed with multiple

:01:39.:01:41.

sclerosis a year before she died. Her father and boyfriend described

:01:42.:01:47.

her purse condition was so severe that she needed a wheelchair after

using the usurper right leg. They told the inquest that he had been

feeling unwell in the days leading up to her death. Her boyfriend said

:01:57.:02:04.

that he woke in the middle of the night finding his girlfriend

:02:05.:02:08.

unconscious. She died later in hospital. We also heard from

:02:09.:02:13.

Kymberley's nurse and a toxicologist. From their evidence we

:02:14.:02:20.

learned about a strong painkiller that was said to be a cause of her

:02:21.:02:26.

death, one of the causes per death. Kymberley had been prescribed ten

:02:27.:02:29.

times the dosage that you should have been. In the hours before she

:02:30.:02:34.

died, Kymberley had taken three doses to cope with the tax of pain

:02:35.:02:38.

in her right leg. The postmortem report get the cause of death as

:02:39.:02:48.

debit disease, and an overdose of the painkilling medicine. Tomorrow,

:02:49.:02:52.

the inquest will hear from Kymberley's GP, who prescribed the

The son of a man who took his own life is campaigning to highlight

:02:58.:03:03.

what he says is the secrecy, shame and stigma that still

:03:04.:03:05.

It's a particular issue here in the East Midlands among some

:03:06.:03:11.

Kal Singh Dhindsa's father, Mohinder, struggled

:03:12.:03:14.

Kal says attitudes are changing, but not fast enough.

:03:15.:03:20.

Our Health correspondent Rob Sissons reports.

:03:21.:03:24.

My father took his own life, died by suicide on March 1st, 2006.

:03:25.:03:27.

He is never out of my mind, never out of my memory.

:03:28.:03:39.

His shed, he jokingly calls it his 'Man Cave',

:03:40.:03:44.

is a place where he has done plenty of thinking about mental health.

:03:45.:03:48.

He has also written about his dad's depression.

:03:49.:03:50.

He wants to challenge the stigma of mental illness.

:03:51.:03:54.

The question that kept stirring in my mind was, "Why did he do it?

:03:55.:03:58.

As soon as you can accept that someone has done this

:03:59.:04:03.

because their mind was corrupted and they had a mental illness,

:04:04.:04:07.

you can accept that what they did, they did because they were not

:04:08.:04:10.

Mental health is to be subject for many groups,

:04:11.:04:13.

but that Leicestershire's mental health trust, this psychiatrist says

:04:14.:04:15.

there are some particular challenges in Asian communities.

:04:16.:04:22.

When you have high blood pressure or diabetes,

:04:23.:04:25.

people understand that your body has a problem.

:04:26.:04:28.

When you have a mental health problem, people may actually take

:04:29.:04:30.

Some people may think it is punishment from God,

:04:31.:04:36.

or the effect of karma or past life, and sometimes it is

:04:37.:04:43.

This project in Leicester aims to challenge myths.

Another lady was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

:05:03.:05:10.

Everybody is with me, friendly and I like all the activities.

:05:11.:05:17.

After 30 years of work, the project senses attitudes

:05:18.:05:19.

are changing, moving in the right direction, albeit slowly.

:05:20.:05:22.

Rob Sissons, BBC East Midlands today, Leicester.

:05:23.:05:32.

Police have formally identified the 25-year-old man found dead

:05:33.:05:34.

from stab wounds at a house in Ashby in Leicestershire.

:05:35.:05:38.

Warren Hall was found at a bungalow in Holland Crescent last Thursday,

:05:39.:05:41.

along with a seriously injured woman and an unharmed two-year-old child.

:05:42.:05:50.

The woman, named locally as 25-year-old Sandie Rayne,

:05:51.:05:52.

had suffered stabbed wounds and was airlifted to hospital.

:05:53.:05:54.

The child is being cared for by relatives.

:05:55.:05:58.

Police have named the 52-year-old man who died in a collision

:05:59.:06:00.

Ian Newell, from Grantham, was driving one of the six vehicles

:06:01.:06:06.

Nottinghamshire police are continuing to investigate

:06:07.:06:10.

the accident, which shut the road in both directions

:06:11.:06:12.

A 38-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of causing death

:06:13.:06:16.

by dangerous driving, has been released on police bail.

:06:17.:06:22.

Derbyshire police have been suspended from the Government's

:06:23.:06:23.

It has become the only force in the country to lose

:06:24.:06:31.

the new accreditation, which requires more

:06:32.:06:33.

Inspectors have ruled that it failed to reach agreed standards.

:06:34.:06:38.

Senior officers say they are disappointed by the suspension.

:06:39.:06:40.

They say new mobile recording equipment will be brought into use

:06:41.:06:43.

Still to come this evening: How forensic science is cracking

:06:44.:06:49.

And the Navy club that wants you to join up,

:06:50.:06:57.

and there is always a tot of rum on offer!

:06:58.:07:00.

Next tonight, we're being told major work to repair a railway bridge

:07:01.:07:12.

in Leicestershire which collapsed eight months ago causing travel

:07:13.:07:25.

chaos across the country is finally close to completion.

:07:26.:07:27.

Village life in Barrow Upon Soar has been disrupted since the bridge

:07:28.:07:30.

crumbled onto the Midland Mainline at the beginning of August.

:07:31.:07:32.

It will now re-open at the end of March, but there's a warning

:07:33.:07:36.

Well, yes, this is the bridge that sparked chaos for rail passengers up

:07:37.:07:45.

and down the country at the beginning of August.

:07:46.:07:50.

You may remember this Victorian crossing, which spans

:07:51.:07:52.

the busy Midland Mainline, crumbled onto the tracks

:07:53.:07:55.

during an overnight inspection, stopping trains to and from London.

:07:56.:07:59.

Well, since then, Network Rail engineers have been here working day

:08:00.:08:03.

and night to repair it, removing 200 tonnes of debris,

:08:04.:08:06.

restoring the brick parapet, reconnecting gas and water mains

:08:07.:08:08.

running through the bridge as well as resurfacing the road.

:08:09.:08:14.

All that, as you can imagine, has led to diversions and disruption

:08:15.:08:17.

for those living and working in this community.

:08:18.:08:18.

Here's what villagers told me earlier.

:08:19.:08:26.

The noise led to a lot of sleepless nights. For us not too bad because

:08:27.:08:39.

we can catch up, but for others it must be horrendous. They have got to

:08:40.:08:43.

go to work. So it has affected your quality-of-life? Yes. We have had

:08:44.:08:49.

noise at weekends of people working on the bridge, Scrabble has not been

:08:50.:08:54.

particularly quiet. For me it is the noise and the fact they have these

:08:55.:08:59.

great big trucks and things, you can't even get out of your driveway.

:09:00.:09:01.

This bridge has been open to pedestrians for much of the last

:09:02.:09:05.

eight months and will finally reopen to vehicles on 27th March.

:09:06.:09:10.

But there's more to do, which is why 'finishing-off' work

:09:11.:09:13.

will have to continue later this year.

:09:14.:09:14.

Network Rail has told me there simply isn't enough room

:09:15.:09:17.

on site for all the work to be carried out at once.

:09:18.:09:28.

This is a very constrained site, it is a very narrow road. They have had

:09:29.:09:36.

to face the work in order to make sure we minimise disruption to

:09:37.:09:40.

people. We are sorry for the disruption. We have done everything

:09:41.:09:44.

we can to shorten the time scale, but make sure this old Bridget safe

:09:45.:09:46.

and secure for everybody. Network Rail has been discussing

:09:47.:09:51.

the work it's going to do and the work already done

:09:52.:09:54.

with villagers at a public I'm told that, in total,

:09:55.:09:56.

all the work here will come to around ?1 million and that future

:09:57.:10:02.

work will take place on four Saturday nights,

:10:03.:10:04.

but we don't yet know when. Now that railway bridge

:10:05.:10:19.

in Barrow may be Victorian, but it's a mere baby compared

:10:20.:10:21.

with Swarkestone Bridge The famous causeway

:10:22.:10:23.

running up to the bridge Not surprisingly, a road designed

:10:24.:10:27.

for horses and carts back in the 13th century gets damaged

:10:28.:10:35.

regularly by modern traffic, but now there are plans to put up

:10:36.:10:37.

signs to stop the largest lorries getting anywhere near it,

:10:38.:10:40.

as James Roberson reports. Traffic heading towards and away

:10:41.:10:54.

from Swarkestone Bridge in Derbyshire. The bridge over the

:10:55.:10:57.

River Trent itself is old enough, but the causeway across the flood

:10:58.:11:01.

plain is medieval. Nonetheless, they both get 20,000 vehicles a day over

:11:02.:11:06.

them. There are signs to stop the biggest lorries crossing but there

:11:07.:11:11.

are quite close to the structure. One of the problems is if they

:11:12.:11:15.

haven't read signs a couple of miles away warning of the impending

:11:16.:11:19.

problem, it is too late for them to turn around. You can see the traffic

:11:20.:11:24.

coming up and dine here, there is no work for them to turn around, so how

:11:25.:11:28.

can we preserve the bridge? There are plans to put up flashing signs

:11:29.:11:35.

to give time for a lorries to divert either north or south of the bridge.

:11:36.:11:40.

Linda would like to see an entirely new road across the flood plain.

:11:41.:11:46.

Numerous plans and boots were suggested in 2010. The last costs

:11:47.:11:51.

mentioned in a few years ago were in the region of 20 million. I imagine

:11:52.:11:55.

that would be 50 million night because they always come in more

:11:56.:12:00.

expensive plan for. I am all for preserving it, but it is not fit for

:12:01.:12:05.

purpose in the 21st century. It was not built for cars and people are

:12:06.:12:08.

complaining incessantly about it. The only option is to have another

:12:09.:12:14.

bypass. The council says that because of budgetary constraints

:12:15.:12:18.

those plans have not advanced since 2010, but the new warning lights

:12:19.:12:19.

should go up in May. but the new warning lights should go

:12:20.:12:21.

up in May. A team of Nottingham scientists

:12:22.:12:23.

is using forensic techniques There's been a big rise in illegal

:12:24.:12:25.

waste removal operators Now the Environment Agency is having

:12:26.:12:30.

to spend millions of pounds Fly-tipping costs councils

:12:31.:12:33.

in our region around ?1 million a year to clear up,

:12:34.:12:42.

and, depending on the type of waste, Here at the Environment Agency

:12:43.:12:49.

labs in Nottingham, they are using forensic science

:12:50.:12:52.

to identify if abandoned waste We take a small portion

:12:53.:12:54.

of the sample, place it on this instrument,

:12:55.:13:04.

which is an infrared... This sample was taken

:13:05.:13:06.

from a canister in a warehouse. The computer programme

:13:07.:13:10.

analyses the substance The position of the peaks on this

:13:11.:13:12.

chromatogram tell us what atoms are present in the substance

:13:13.:13:21.

and what their intensity is. From the type of substance that

:13:22.:13:24.

you find you can characterise the process that it comes from,

:13:25.:13:27.

and that might lead to where And it's that chemical fingerprint

:13:28.:13:30.

that allows investigators In particular, the Environment

:13:31.:13:35.

Agency has seen a big rise The Environment Agency estimates

:13:36.:13:42.

that waste crime diverts around ?1 billion a year from legitimate

:13:43.:13:50.

waste disposal businesses and from the Treasury,

:13:51.:13:53.

and they have spent ?65 million And number of companies that are

:13:54.:14:13.

really criminal gangs, that are not complying with the waste

:14:14.:14:15.

legislation. They are telling people they have permits when they don't.

:14:16.:14:18.

They are telling people they have permits when they don't.

:14:19.:14:20.

What we want to do is catch those people and stop them

:14:21.:14:25.

Those responsible can face an unlimited fine and/or up

:14:26.:14:29.

The forensic analysis is playing a vital part

:14:30.:14:32.

The unemployment rate in the East Midlands

:14:33.:14:40.

is at its lowest for more than a decade.

:14:41.:14:43.

Between November last year and January this year the number

:14:44.:14:46.

of people out of work in our region dropped by more than 9,000 compared

:14:47.:14:49.

Despite this, the number of people claiming Jobseekers Allowance rose

:14:50.:14:54.

by almost 2,000 to more than 31,000 claimants.

:14:55.:15:00.

More than ?600,000 is being made available to independent shops

:15:01.:15:03.

in Leicester to help improve their properties.

:15:04.:15:07.

Leicester City Council is offering the funds so that retailers can

:15:08.:15:10.

smarten up their shop fronts and help create attractive

:15:11.:15:12.

Still to come: It's been a wonderful Wednesday weather-wise,

:15:13.:15:27.

Yes, it has been a gorgeous day in the East Midlands,

:15:28.:15:31.

so I have stepped out to enjoy a few of the last rays because it

:15:32.:15:35.

I'll have your details at the end of the programme.

:15:36.:15:47.

Leicester City - officially one of the eight best sides in Europe.

:15:48.:15:53.

Last night, a win up there with their triumphs of last

:15:54.:15:57.

season sent Leicester through to the quarterfinals

:15:58.:15:59.

They beat Sevilla, who are serious contenders for the Spanish title,

:16:00.:16:04.

A display of control, all watched by Nikesh Rughani

:16:05.:16:09.

The atmosphere at the King Power Stadium was electric

:16:10.:16:18.

for arguably the biggest game in Leicester City's history.

:16:19.:16:20.

Once the nerves settled, it didn't take too long

:16:21.:16:22.

for the Foxes to take the lead through Captain Wes

:16:23.:16:25.

A 1-0 win would have sent Leicester through to the quarterfinals on away

:16:26.:16:30.

goals, but they continued to push forward and they sent the crowd

:16:31.:16:33.

into a frenzy when Marc Albrighton made it 2-0 nine minutes

:16:34.:16:36.

Albrighton has just possibly scored the biggest goal

:16:37.:16:46.

15 minutes from the end, Sevilla's Samir Nasri was sent off

:16:47.:16:52.

after head-butting Jamie Vardy and the tie looked to be safe,

:16:53.:16:55.

but the Spanish side won a penalty that could have sent the tie

:16:56.:16:58.

Kasper Schmeichel, though, had other ideas.

:16:59.:17:04.

The Foxes held on for the last ten minutes and secured one

:17:05.:17:14.

of the most famous victories in the club's history.

:17:15.:17:19.

I think it would be memorable for everybody at the football

:17:20.:17:21.

But I think the supporters who got behind us from the first minute.

:17:22.:17:27.

Especially the players, who I thought were outstanding tonight.

:17:28.:17:32.

So, the fairytale continues for Leicester City Football Club.

:17:33.:17:34.

Just a couple of weeks ago things look very bleak indeed.

:17:35.:17:36.

They were staring at the relegation zone in the Premier League, but now,

:17:37.:17:40.

under Craig Shakespeare's leadership, they are into the last

:17:41.:17:42.

eight in Europe and it has left the fans jubilant.

:17:43.:17:46.

This is the Leicester City of last year.

:17:47.:17:54.

I remember when we beat Manchester United 5-3,

:17:55.:17:57.

I thought it couldn't really get any better, then we come

:17:58.:18:00.

The best day in this club's history, I think.

:18:01.:18:22.

Where next for the Leicester glory ride?

:18:23.:18:25.

You can see the badges of the potential

:18:26.:18:30.

The huge names are all there - Barcelona, Bayern

:18:31.:18:33.

But equally, it might be Manchester City, who play tonight.

:18:34.:18:38.

We went out and about to find out who Leicester fans want

:18:39.:18:41.

in the draw on Friday, as you'll see, one

:18:42.:18:43.

Real Madrid. Great experience for Leicester, wouldn't it? Bayer

:18:44.:19:01.

Leverkusen. Definitely Barcelona. Beautiful city, pass, lovely weather

:19:02.:19:05.

at this time of year. If we are going to go out I would like to be

:19:06.:19:10.

against a good team, Barcelona. I would like to see them beat the best

:19:11.:19:18.

teams, Lionel Messi and all of them. Let's keep it going, definitely.

:19:19.:19:19.

I wonder, are we now at the point where the achievement is already

:19:20.:19:25.

so huge it simply doesn't matter what comes next?

:19:26.:19:27.

Right now, former England star Trevor Sinclair is on BBC Five Live

:19:28.:19:30.

watching to see if Manchester City can join Leicester

:19:31.:19:32.

A little earlier, I spoke to him about the scale

:19:33.:19:36.

It is an incredible achievement. You look at Manchester United when they

:19:37.:19:46.

first got into the Champions League, they struggled to make any impact.

:19:47.:19:51.

What Leicester have achieved is incredible. The players must be very

:19:52.:19:56.

proud of themselves and the manager, one of his first games in charge,

:19:57.:20:01.

what a way to start! They are all talking appear like they are almost

:20:02.:20:05.

like a League 1 club that is needed a long way in the FA Cup or

:20:06.:20:11.

something. Can they go further? Who would bet against it? Look at what

:20:12.:20:16.

they achieved last year. I think their league form seems to have

:20:17.:20:19.

suffered because of the Champions League. Claudio Ranieri did tinker a

:20:20.:20:29.

lot this season, playing players out of position. In this competition

:20:30.:20:33.

they will play to their strengths, playing on the counterattack. I

:20:34.:20:39.

think they could surprise a few. I wouldn't bet against them. The fans

:20:40.:20:48.

want Barcelona, half are looking forward to it, have terrified. They

:20:49.:20:53.

will all be difficult games, they will sit in against whoever they

:20:54.:20:57.

play against. When you have the players defending like that, Kasper

:20:58.:21:04.

Schmeichel playing out of his skin, getting the rub of the green that

:21:05.:21:07.

they weren't getting at the beginning of the season, those

:21:08.:21:12.

players will need to play well. If they can do this it will be an

:21:13.:21:18.

amazing achievement. Talking about getting to the semifinal of the

:21:19.:21:22.

Champions League! That would be the holy grail for Leicester City.

:21:23.:21:25.

The draw is on Friday at 11 o'clock in the morning.

:21:26.:21:35.

Just finally, Leicester City weren't the only team playing last night,

:21:36.:21:38.

but I'm afraid it was two defeats for our sides in League Two.

:21:39.:21:41.

Mansfield will be the most disappointed after seeing Colchester

:21:42.:21:43.

leapfrog above them in the race for the play-offs.

:21:44.:21:45.

No surprise that Notts County lost at table topping Doncaster.

:21:46.:21:50.

They gave them a scare, though, with this goal from Richard Duffy.

:21:51.:21:53.

All before Rovers took the lead and then polished it off with this

:21:54.:21:56.

goal into an empty net as Notts desperately hunted an equaliser.

:21:57.:22:06.

Not quite that Leicester's level, but still hunting for glory.

:22:07.:22:11.

Now, were you or someone in your family ever in the navy?
