With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Emily Anderson.

:00:12.:00:13.

First tonight, residents in Derby are clearing up this evening

:00:14.:00:17.

For hours, the water was spouting from the broken

:00:18.:00:23.

main in Chester Green, damaging nearby homes.

:00:24.:00:26.

This traumatic footage was captured at around 2:30am,

:00:27.:00:32.

At 10am, the water burst was much reduced but the houses directly

:00:33.:00:40.

affected showed damage to windows, the roof,

:00:41.:00:44.

Inside one of them, Dawn, too upset to be shown on camera,

:00:45.:00:51.

I was woken up with a horrendous noise of crashing, glass breaking.

:00:52.:00:57.

I couldn't comprehend what was happening.

:00:58.:01:00.

And then some people at the back shouted to get out.

:01:01.:01:06.

It was so ferocious, it's taken them 6.5 hours to close it down.

:01:07.:01:15.

Meanwhile, dozens of other houses had also been flooded,

:01:16.:01:18.

It's literally just destroyed everything.

:01:19.:01:24.

It's destroyed the washing machine, the kitchen.

:01:25.:01:28.

I mean, we've got a dog and cat upstairs.

:01:29.:01:30.

The lady upstairs, who is pregnant, they've just all done their house

:01:31.:01:33.

Tonight, Severn Trent say they've now closed the burst off fully

:01:34.:01:38.

and they've restored water to most houses locally.

:01:39.:01:41.

But it could be several days before the road is fully repaired.

:01:42.:01:50.

Two people have been charged with the murder

:01:51.:01:52.

Timothy Smith, who was 45 and from Tamworth was found dying

:01:53.:01:56.

in a car on the Gelders Hall industrial estate on Thursday night.

:01:57.:02:00.

Mark Law who's 20 and from Sandringham Rise in Shepshed,

:02:01.:02:05.

and a 17-year-old, will appear before magistrates tomorrow.

:02:06.:02:15.

The funeral's taken place of a prominent member

:02:16.:02:16.

Sandy Saunders from Burton Lazars in Leicestershire died

:02:17.:02:20.

Actress Amanda Redman was among the mourners who attended.

:02:21.:02:24.

Last year Sandy Saunders' raised funds for a memorial to the 649

:02:25.:02:27.

members of the club, who were badly burned

:02:28.:02:30.

He was an extraordinary man, actually.

:02:31.:02:35.

I feel so honoured to have known him.

:02:36.:02:38.

It's the resilience and the stoicism that they all have, actually.

:02:39.:02:43.

And I can't quite believe he's gone because he was the sort

:02:44.:02:47.

of man you felt would go on for ever and ever.

:02:48.:02:51.

It's being claimed people affected by HS2 in a Nottinghamshire village

:02:52.:02:55.

are unfairly missing out on compensation.

:02:56.:02:58.

The high speed rail line will go through Trowell,

:02:59.:03:03.

but because it's been classified as an urban village,

:03:04.:03:05.

residents aren't entitled to as much compensation as others.

:03:06.:03:07.

It's a village already split in half by the M1,

:03:08.:03:10.

and now looks set to be sliced again by HS2.

:03:11.:03:15.

Despite this, Trowell Parish Council says it should be seen not only

:03:16.:03:18.

as one village but wholly as a rural village.

:03:19.:03:23.

HS2, however, has classified much of Trowell as an urban village.

:03:24.:03:28.

Which means people affected by the line in the urban part,

:03:29.:03:31.

the area not surrounded by these multicoloured lines,

:03:32.:03:35.

Trowell village on the map is an area which is slightly

:03:36.:03:41.

to the west of the motorway, and the other half of the village

:03:42.:03:45.

And my belief is they just hadn't realised we are actually part

:03:46.:03:52.

The council wants to see the whole of Trowell reclassified as a rural

:03:53.:03:57.

village and delivered its views in a recent consultation.

:03:58.:04:01.

Sport now and a cracking afternoon for all our teams.

:04:02.:04:25.

We'll start with rugby and Leicester Tigers have won

:04:26.:04:27.

Tom Brady pounced on a loose pass from Matt Jess

:04:28.:04:31.

They beat Exeter Chiefs 16 points to 12.

:04:32.:04:36.

It's their first silverware since 2013.

:04:37.:04:41.

Onto basketball and Leicester Riders' Men and Women have both been

:04:42.:04:43.

in action this afternoon in their respective

:04:44.:04:45.

The men beat Plymouth Raiders 82, 67 to retain their title,

:04:46.:04:52.

but the women lost 67, 82 to the Sevenoaks

:04:53.:04:56.

Onto football and in League Two Notts County won with ten

:04:57.:05:03.

Time for a look at your weather now with Alex.

:05:04.:05:09.

Well, we've got more sunshine and showers on the way

:05:10.:05:12.

These fronts coming towards us, the isobars squeezing together

:05:13.:05:16.

as well, so we are expecting some breezy conditions, too.

:05:17.:05:19.

So, looking at the details for tonight, we do have some showers

:05:20.:05:22.

working their way across the region, some slightly drier spells

:05:23.:05:25.

in between those, and a mild night ahead with loads

:05:26.:05:28.

Then, as we go towards tomorrow morning, we've got wet

:05:29.:05:34.

Do watch out, there could be some spray and standing

:05:35.:05:37.

Slightly drier and brighter in the afternoon.

:05:38.:05:43.

Turning noticeably cooler over the next few days.

:05:44.:05:48.

Hello. For most of March so far it has felt quite mild and springlike

:05:49.:06:17.

but we are in for a bit of a shock next week as we will have a blast of

:06:18.:06:23.

Arctic air across the UK making it feel much cooler than it has of late

:06:24.:06:27.

with wintry showers and a return to overnight frosts for a while. The

:06:28.:06:31.

pressure chart shows more weather fronts pushing into many central and

:06:32.:06:34.

southern parts of the country this evening and overnight it will turn

:06:35.:06:38.

quite wet across parts of England and when is towards the end of the

:06:39.:06:40.

night and

:06:41.:06:42.
