We are back with the late news at 10.15pm.

:00:00.:00:15.

With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:16.:00:17.

A murder investigation's been launched in Leicester

:00:18.:00:20.

It's after officers were called to Albion Street just

:00:21.:00:28.

A man was found there with serious injuries -

:00:29.:00:31.

he was taken to hospital, but died shortly afterwards.

:00:32.:00:33.

Police want to speak to anyone who was in the area

:00:34.:00:36.

of Albion Street, Market Street and Bowling Green

:00:37.:00:38.

Campaigners trying to stop the closure of the region's only

:00:39.:00:42.

children's heart surgery unit have taken to the streets.

:00:43.:00:44.

and rally, the latest in a series of them,

:00:45.:00:47.

comes as, this week, a four month consultation

:00:48.:00:49.

started on the closure of the unit in Leicester.

:00:50.:00:51.

NHS England believe the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre

:00:52.:00:53.

at Glenfield Hospital isn't capable of meeting future safety standards.

:00:54.:01:01.

We want to go through the official channels but we also want to show

:01:02.:01:05.

the mood of people and a demonstration is a way

:01:06.:01:07.

of bringing people together and showing that mood.

:01:08.:01:10.

We will do what we need to do to make them stand up and listen to

:01:11.:01:13.

understand it makes no sense to move it.

:01:14.:01:16.

It is a vital service that needs to stay open for us.

:01:17.:01:21.

If you close the unit, there is no unit in the

:01:22.:01:23.

district which can cope with all these patients.

:01:24.:01:26.

So all these patients will suffer a lot.

:01:27.:01:33.

Police investigating the stabbing of a teenager in Leicester have made

:01:34.:01:36.

Officers were called to reports of a fight in Aikman Avenue

:01:37.:01:43.

Five people were arrested - one's been released without charge,

:01:44.:01:46.

Meanwhile this afternoon two boys aged 16 and 17 are helping police

:01:47.:01:50.

A charity that provides hospice care for the terminally ill says thieves

:01:51.:01:55.

LOROS say their shops have been targeted by burglars FIVE times

:01:56.:01:59.

The latest break-in happened in Blaby in the early

:02:00.:02:06.

The thieves came through, forced the door here and basically

:02:07.:02:11.

came straight through and attacked the door frame here.

:02:12.:02:14.

Forced their way in, went inside the shop where there was

:02:15.:02:17.

That is the door which was taken off.

:02:18.:02:28.

It is thought the same people targeted a number of

:02:29.:02:30.

Volunteers here say it has left them feeling sick and angry.

:02:31.:02:35.

Volunteers give their time for nothing and to

:02:36.:02:37.

come in and find that somebody has gone to the trouble of removing

:02:38.:02:42.

relatively small amounts of money and caused actually quite expensive

:02:43.:02:47.

It is thought the thieves only got away

:02:48.:02:53.

with ?65 but the cost to LOROS could be as much as ?1000.

:02:54.:03:00.

All that good work people do for some mindless

:03:01.:03:03.

fool to come in and take a few pounds and cause all this

:03:04.:03:07.

devastation and damage and the demoralising effect on our

:03:08.:03:17.

volunteers and staff who are working so hard

:03:18.:03:19.

to try and raise the money for

:03:20.:03:21.

Football now, and second-half action is just getting under way.

:03:22.:03:25.

At half time - Derby County were 3-0 down to Bristol City,

:03:26.:03:28.

and Nottingham Forest were also three down - at Norwich.

:03:29.:03:31.

In league two, Mansfield Town were leading

:03:32.:03:32.

and Notts County were two up against Cheltenham.

:03:33.:03:37.

Live updates continue now on Radio Derby and Radio Nottingham.

:03:38.:03:46.

It certainly was a cold start for all of us.

:03:47.:03:53.

We saw a dusting of snow in many spots.

:03:54.:03:56.

Some places escaped with a touch of sleet.

:03:57.:03:59.

Overnight and into tomorrow, we still have that easterly wind.

:04:00.:04:02.

We are likely to see showers, some of

:04:03.:04:06.

which again could be wintry as they meet that cold air.

:04:07.:04:10.

We will see them coming through overnight, some of

:04:11.:04:13.

them will be wintry over the highest ground and we may get snow

:04:14.:04:16.

Temperatures ranging between one and three Celsius.

:04:17.:04:20.

A cold start to the day, the easterly

:04:21.:04:24.

Some will be wintry as they clear away, daytime temperatures ranging

:04:25.:04:31.

Something drier and brighter as we start the new working

:04:32.:04:38.

week with temperatures starting to climb finally and we could be

:04:39.:04:41.

back in double figures by the middle of the week.

:04:42.:04:48.

Great line-up on the beat tonight - as always.

:04:49.:04:50.

Guests include Elbow, and The Saturday's Una Healy.

:04:51.:04:52.

A new album too from Leicester's Jersey Budd and The Shrives -

:04:53.:04:55.

from Derby and Grantham - have news to share.

:04:56.:04:57.

That's from six on your local BBC Radio.

:04:58.:05:00.

Back with more for you tomorrow at ten to six.

:05:01.:05:13.

Good afternoon. An afternoon to snuggle up in front of the telly and

:05:14.:05:20.

watch some rugby. It's been a cold winter's day. Not just for humans.

:05:21.:05:28.

This shot was taken earlier. There was some sunshine in Scotland, here

:05:29.:05:31.

a beautiful afternoon. That was the expectation for most. It's bleak out

:05:32.:05:36.

there. A mixture of rain and snow on the radar. You have to go a long way

:05:37.:05:41.

up the hills to find settling snow. Into the evening and temperatures

:05:42.:05:43.

begin to fall again, we could see some of the white stuff turning up

:05:44.:05:47.

again at lower levels across eastern Counties of England and quite a lot

:05:48.:05:52.

of snow piling up over the Pennines in particular on a brisk wind, it is

:05:53.:05:56.

going to feel cold wherever you are with temperatures hovering close to

:05:57.:06:01.

freezing. Tomorrow another raw feeling day.

:06:02.:06:03.

Further rain, sleet and snow.

:06:04.:06:05.
