You can see more on all of today's stories on the BBC News Channel.

:00:00.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:15.

First tonight, Severn Trent has apologised to thousands of customers

:00:16.:00:21.

in Derby who've been affected by a huge water main burst.

:00:22.:00:24.

At its height, 7,500 homes and businesses were affected.

:00:25.:00:28.

Dozens of properties have been damaged in Chester Green

:00:29.:00:33.

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

:00:34.:00:39.

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

:00:40.:00:46.

affected showed damage to windows, the roof, the doors,

:00:47.:00:52.

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

:00:53.:00:57.

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

:00:58.:01:03.

I couldn't comprehend what was happening.

:01:04.:01:06.

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

:01:07.:01:15.

Meanwhile, dozens of other houses had also been flooded,

:01:16.:01:17.

It's literally just destroyed everything.

:01:18.:01:22.

It's destroyed the washing machine, the kitchen.

:01:23.:01:26.

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

:01:27.:01:28.

Moved our cars down the road, and we were slowly watching it

:01:29.:01:32.

rise and rise and rise and ruin everything.

:01:33.:01:35.

My kitchen's flooded, the whole garden's flooded.

:01:36.:01:37.

But that is the extent of it, so, hopefully, it'll be OK

:01:38.:01:42.

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

:01:43.:01:47.

and they've restored water to most houses locally.

:01:48.:01:49.

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

:01:50.:01:58.

Two people have been charged with the murder

:01:59.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:08.

A 20-year-old man from Shepshed, and a 17-year-old, will appear

:02:09.:02:13.

It's being claimed some people affected by HS2 in Nottinghamshire

:02:14.:02:20.

are unfairly missing out on compensation.

:02:21.:02:24.

The high speed rail line will go through Trowell,

:02:25.:02:26.

but some residents may not get as much as others.

:02:27.:02:31.

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

:02:32.:02:36.

and now looks set to be sliced again by HS2.

:02:37.:02:41.

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

:02:42.:02:45.

as one village but wholly as a rural village.

:02:46.:02:49.

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

:02:50.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:02:58.

the area not surrounded by these multicoloured lines,

:02:59.:03:01.

Trowell village on the map is an area which is slightly

:03:02.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:19.

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

:03:20.:03:23.

Sport now and it was a great afternoon for the Leicester Tigers.

:03:24.:03:44.

The Tigers beat Exeter Chiefs by 16-12 to win the Anglo-Welsh cup.

:03:45.:03:52.

Onto basketball, and success for the Leicester Riders men's team today.

:03:53.:03:55.

They beat Plymouth Raiders 82-67 in the BBL Trophy final

:03:56.:04:01.

Bad news for the women though, they lost to the Sevenoaks Suns.

:04:02.:04:09.

Time for a look at the weather now, here's Alex.

:04:10.:04:11.

Well, I'd grab your brollies for tomorrow because we've got some

:04:12.:04:17.

These fronts coming towards us, the isobars squeezing together

:04:18.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:24.

Looking at the detail tonight, dry for a time, a few showers

:04:25.:04:27.

working their way across the region, and a mild night tonight

:04:28.:04:30.

Now, watch out tomorrow morning, there could be some spray

:04:31.:04:33.

and standing water on the roads as this wet weather

:04:34.:04:36.

We are expecting highs of 12 Celsius and slightly drier

:04:37.:04:40.

and brighter weather as we go through the afternoon.

:04:41.:04:43.

Sunshine and showers on the way, noticeably cooler, though,

:04:44.:04:49.

We're back tomorrow morning from 6:25am.

:04:50.:04:55.

Good evening. There is some rain coming into the southern half of the

:04:56.:05:15.

UK as we speak. I think by the end of the night it will have got into

:05:16.:05:19.

the Midlands and much of East Anglia as well. A bit of a breeze here as

:05:20.:05:24.

well. Some gusty winds and snow on the hills of Scotland. With all of

:05:25.:05:32.

that going on, it is not particularly cold overnight.

:05:33.:05:34.

Southern areas will hang on to double figures in many towns and

:05:35.:05:38.

cities. A bit of a messy picture for the start of the new week. The rain

:05:39.:05:41.

moves quickly eastwards across Scotland. For Northern England,

:05:42.:05:46.

Wales, the Midlands and South West it is a miserable start to the day.

:05:47.:05:52.

Brighter skies do follow along behind but with some showers. Wintry

:05:53.:05:56.

showers across the hills of Scotland. The cold Iraq continues to

:05:57.:06:04.

filter its way in. Through the evening, once the sun goes

:06:05.:06:08.
