With the news now for the East Midlands, I'm Jim Davis.

:00:11.:00:14.

We start with breaking football news.

:00:15.:00:15.

Derby County have sacked their manager Steve McClaren

:00:16.:00:18.

following what they describe as a decline in results,

:00:19.:00:20.

The former England boss had been in the job for just five months.

:00:21.:00:25.

This result was the final straw for the owner.

:00:26.:00:31.

A 3-0 defeat at Brighton, the final game for Steve McClaren.

:00:32.:00:34.

The club statement pulls no punches, describing the all-round

:00:35.:00:37.

decline as "Significant, unexpected and persistent."

:00:38.:00:42.

Owner, Mel Morris, said, "Friday's performance was so far

:00:43.:00:44.

"from what we expect from those wearing the Derby County shirt."

:00:45.:00:48.

Steve McClaren entered his second spell as Derby County

:00:49.:00:52.

manager last October, but a promising start disintegrated.

:00:53.:00:55.

He was sacked tonight along with his assistant

:00:56.:00:58.

Derby are now searching for their fifth manager in 15

:00:59.:01:03.

months, and expect to make an announcement in relation

:01:04.:01:06.

Mark Shardlow, BBC East Midlands Today.

:01:07.:01:12.

Meanwhile, Craig Shakespeare has been appointed as manager

:01:13.:01:14.

of Leicester City until the end of the season.

:01:15.:01:16.

He's been caretaking since Claudio Ranieri

:01:17.:01:18.

Shakespeare is currently preparing to host Sevilla in the second leg

:01:19.:01:22.

of their last 16 Champions League tie on Tuesday evening.

:01:23.:01:27.

Four cyclists have been injured, two of them critically,

:01:28.:01:30.

after being involved in a collision with a car in Leicestershire.

:01:31.:01:33.

It happened near Eastwell, north of Melton Mowbray,

:01:34.:01:36.

Police say two of the riders were taken to Nottingham's

:01:37.:01:41.

Queen's Medical Centre with serious injuries.

:01:42.:01:42.

Another suffered a broken leg, while a fourth had minor injuries.

:01:43.:01:45.

The road has been closed for much of the day.

:01:46.:01:48.

The driver of the car was questioned at the scene.

:01:49.:01:51.

Police investigating the disappearance of

:01:52.:01:53.

Madeleine McCann have been granted ?85,000 to extend the search

:01:54.:01:55.

Madeleine, from Rothley in Leicestershire, disappeared

:01:56.:02:01.

from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal almost 10 years ago.

:02:02.:02:05.

The extra funding has been earmarked for operational costs.

:02:06.:02:08.

Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann,

:02:09.:02:09.

have vowed to never give up hope" of finding their daughter.

:02:10.:02:13.

Around 700 shops and local organisations have signed up to be

:02:14.:02:16.

part of Leicester's first Business Improvement

:02:17.:02:17.

It's hoped the plan will provide a big boost for the city centre,

:02:18.:02:23.

currently the only one in the country without

:02:24.:02:26.

This chocolatier trades at the heart of Leicester,

:02:27.:02:31.

benefiting from the city's vibrant retail scene, but now,

:02:32.:02:33.

he's part of a group looking to boost business for traders

:02:34.:02:37.

We're at the top of our game at the moment, we've got a fantastic

:02:38.:02:44.

arts and culture scene, we've got businesses

:02:45.:02:45.

coming into the city, and actually we need to build

:02:46.:02:47.

on that momentum, and a BID will help that happen.

:02:48.:02:51.

But the scheme would mean local businesses within a certain radius

:02:52.:02:54.

paying around a 1% tax on their rateable value.

:02:55.:02:59.

That contribution will help generate about ?3 million to promote growth.

:03:00.:03:01.

We are the businesses, we put money in, we get

:03:02.:03:09.

to say where it's spent and what we want to

:03:10.:03:11.

It's nothing to do with the council -

:03:12.:03:14.

its purely for the businesses, by the businesses.

:03:15.:03:16.

I think the crucial thing to point out is that it's levy,

:03:17.:03:21.

I think the crucial thing to point out is that it's a levy,

:03:22.:03:24.

The businesses get to decide exactly how this money will be spent.

:03:25.:03:28.

Firms in the proposed area will be balloted

:03:29.:03:30.

If the majority of them vote in favour, Leicester could get

:03:31.:03:34.

its Business Improvement District in place by early next year.

:03:35.:03:36.

Sumeer Kalyani, BBC East Midlands Today, Leicester.

:03:37.:03:42.

More than 80 veterans have joined a new breakfast

:03:43.:03:44.

club in Loughborough, which aims to help past and present

:03:45.:03:47.

The monthly get-together was the idea of local Army

:03:48.:03:51.

She says more needs to be done to combat loneliness and isolation,

:03:52.:03:56.

and to celebrate the bonds that service personnel have.

:03:57.:04:01.

With a look ahead to tonight and the start of a new week's

:04:02.:04:04.

Well, we've had a mixture of a few sunny spells and some showers over

:04:05.:04:10.

the course of this weekend, but we've got high pressure

:04:11.:04:12.

building for the start of the new working week,

:04:13.:04:14.

so we are expecting more settled conditions on the way.

:04:15.:04:17.

Looking at the detail overnight tonight, variable amounts of cloud,

:04:18.:04:19.

mostly dry, and lows of around four degrees Celsius there.

:04:20.:04:21.

And as we go through towards tomorrow morning,

:04:22.:04:23.

we are expecting to start on a bright and at times sunny note.

:04:24.:04:26.

It will be feeling rather springlike with temperatures

:04:27.:04:28.

at around 13 degrees Celsius, perhaps even a touch milder

:04:29.:04:31.

than that in the sunshine, but that cloud will spill

:04:32.:04:33.

in from the north-west over the course of the day.

:04:34.:04:36.

I'll leave you with the outlook - we're sticking with those settled

:04:37.:04:39.

conditions and a mixture of sunshine and the odd shower.

:04:40.:04:46.

We'll be back during BBC Breakfast from 6am.

:04:47.:04:49.

But from all of us here, have a good night.

:04:50.:05:04.

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

:05:05.:05:11.

there was sunshine for western areas during the afternoon, and here are

:05:12.:05:13.

the clear skies at sunset in Northern Ireland. Thanks to weather

:05:14.:05:19.

watcher Robin for this picture, those clear skies have been making

:05:20.:05:23.

their way further east ward. Temperatures are dropping away, we

:05:24.:05:27.

have seen temperatures of freezing in parts of Northern Ireland. More

:05:28.:05:31.

cloud rolling in during the latter part of the night but towns and

:05:32.:05:35.

cities down the five and six m the countryside many of us will see the

:05:36.:05:38.

temperatures a degree or so above freezing, so a slight touch of frost

:05:39.:05:42.

across the rural parts of England

:05:43.:05:45.
