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

:00:00.:00:08.

First tonight, a nine-year-old girl with disabilities has hit out

:00:09.:00:11.

at thieves who stole a collection tin which was to help fund

:00:12.:00:15.

Kareena Hayes from Derbyshire says the thieves who stole the tin

:00:16.:00:20.

are horrible and should hand themselves in to the police.

:00:21.:00:23.

Kareena Hayes likes playing with her friends,

:00:24.:00:28.

Kareena also has a form of cerebral palsy

:00:29.:00:35.

Her dad has been raising money for her to have an operation so that

:00:36.:00:41.

hopefully in the future Kareena will be able to walk independently.

:00:42.:00:45.

I hope at the end I'll be able to walk freely

:00:46.:00:48.

It would be the most amazing thing in the world.

:00:49.:00:59.

It's hugely life changing for her, to improve her mobility,

:01:00.:01:04.

remove the spasticity from her muscles and hopefully

:01:05.:01:08.

The operation and the after-care cost almost ?30,000.

:01:09.:01:15.

Family, friends and the local community in Nuneaton have been

:01:16.:01:18.

raising money for Kareena but last week one of the collection tins

:01:19.:01:22.

The charity box was like this, and it's sealed up and we haven't

:01:23.:01:32.

opened it up to see, so it's got her picture on it

:01:33.:01:34.

and everything and I just don't understand how anyone could do that.

:01:35.:01:37.

It's really disappointing because people put money in it

:01:38.:01:41.

for me and they took it and it could have meant more to me

:01:42.:01:48.

The police are urging anyone with any information to contact them.

:01:49.:01:54.

For Kareena, she is desperately hoping she can have the operation

:01:55.:01:57.

A fight in Ashby-de-la-Zouch early this morning

:01:58.:02:14.

has left a man critically ill in hospital.

:02:15.:02:16.

Forensic teams were at the scene in Market Street for much of today.

:02:17.:02:19.

Police want to trace the driver of a silver taxi,

:02:20.:02:22.

which was parked nearby at around 2:30am this morning.

:02:23.:02:24.

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of causing

:02:25.:02:26.

Detectives investigating the murder of a man in Leicester this weekend

:02:27.:02:32.

now want to trace drivers in the area at the time.

:02:33.:02:35.

The man, who hasn't yet been named, was attacked in Albion Street

:02:36.:02:39.

He was found with serious injuries, but died in hospital.

:02:40.:02:44.

Detectives believe taxi drivers and business owners nearby

:02:45.:02:48.

Police have made an eighth arrest in connection

:02:49.:02:52.

A 19-year-old man has been in hospital

:02:53.:02:56.

since a fight in Aikman Avenue on Thursday evening.

:02:57.:03:00.

Police say four men will face no further action.

:03:01.:03:03.

The other four, aged between 15 and 50, have been bailed

:03:04.:03:07.

A man who's been fighting brain tumours since he was a child

:03:08.:03:14.

has officially opened a new MRI unit in Leicester.

:03:15.:03:18.

This new unit in the grounds of the Leicester Royal Infirmary was

:03:19.:03:22.

22-year-old Luke Swain from Lutterworth cut the ribbon.

:03:23.:03:27.

He's been battling tumours on the brain

:03:28.:03:29.

It's helped me quite a lot in the years and obviously

:03:30.:03:37.

looks a lot better than the other ones.

:03:38.:03:40.

I think it's going to help a lot more people.

:03:41.:03:42.

We can do anything and everything on it in terms of MRI.

:03:43.:03:46.

It's got everything that you possibly could need

:03:47.:03:50.

To football now, and Leicester City are nearing the end

:03:51.:03:58.

-- the game has ended. They lost 2-0.

:03:59.:04:07.

A miserable day weather-wise, but let s see what's on the way next.

:04:08.:04:10.

It has been a cold and grey day today.

:04:11.:04:15.

In some spots we've seen some wintry flakes as well.

:04:16.:04:18.

Tomorrow things start to dry up but it still feels very chilly.

:04:19.:04:21.

For tonight still a few showers working their way north

:04:22.:04:23.

but we will eventually start to see things clearing from the south.

:04:24.:04:26.

That clearer air will bring the brightness tomorrow

:04:27.:04:28.

but we should still stay above freezing tonight,

:04:29.:04:32.

temperatures between 2 and 4 Celsius and that breeze helping as well.

:04:33.:04:37.

Tomorrow will be a largely dry start, there might be some mist

:04:38.:04:40.

and fog patches clearing away but then we get that drier air

:04:41.:04:46.

pushing up from the south, introducing some sunny spells -

:04:47.:04:49.

mostly across the south of the region, further north

:04:50.:04:51.

will keep that cloud for a little longer, but temperatures pushing up

:04:52.:04:54.

to 4 to 6 Celsius, so a little better than today but with

:04:55.:04:57.

that easterly breeze it will not feel that way at all,

:04:58.:04:59.

it will feel much chillier but at least

:05:00.:05:02.

the sun is coming out and as we head through the working week,

:05:03.:05:05.

finally we get back into double figures.

:05:06.:05:08.

A Nottingham teenager will play his cello in front

:05:09.:05:10.

17-year-old Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who you might remember is this

:05:11.:05:15.

year's BBC Young Musician of the Year, will play a solo

:05:16.:05:17.

He'll be paying a tribute to those artists

:05:18.:05:23.

The event's broadcast in more than 150 countries.

:05:24.:05:27.

We're back with more for you, later than usual tonight -

:05:28.:05:30.

the other side of the BAFTAs, around 11:30pm.

:05:31.:06:02.

Good evening, dull, grey, cold, miserable. And that's just me! The

:06:03.:06:09.

weather hasn't been great leader for most of us, it will be chilly out

:06:10.:06:13.

there with this nagging easterly breeze, wetter weather for Northern

:06:14.:06:19.

Ireland, by the end of the night most of the

:06:20.:06:20.
