Taking Wolverhampton to Cannes - the latest phase of the city's

:00:00.:00:08.

multi million pound regeneration - looking for international

:00:09.:00:10.

For a few years we've been moving into our economic recovery phase.

:00:11.:00:18.

Now we're into that really confident phase.

:00:19.:00:20.

We'll be looking at how and when this promised regeneration

:00:21.:00:22.

Stalling on pension plans - the BMW workers protesting

:00:23.:00:34.

against the car makers proposals to close final salary scheme

:00:35.:00:37.

Too fragile to touch, the family of a five year

:00:38.:00:39.

old raising awareness of a rare skin disease - which means

:00:40.:00:42.

When you pick a baby up, you'd scoop them under their arms -

:00:43.:00:49.

naturally, that's the way that you'd pick a baby up.

:00:50.:00:51.

Not the historic house, but a small eco-dome made

:00:52.:00:57.

And Hereford was basking in the best of the sun and the temperatures

:00:58.:01:01.

today on the warmest day of the year so far.

:01:02.:01:03.

But will we be so lucky this weekend?

:01:04.:01:05.

The future of Wolverhampton has gone on show on the French Riviera.

:01:06.:01:22.

It's hoped businesses attending an international property convention

:01:23.:01:30.

in Cannes will help to regenerate the City - and create 2500

:01:31.:01:33.

It's part of a multi million pound redevelopment of Wolverhampton.

:01:34.:01:37.

As our Black Country reporter Ben Godfrey has been discovering,

:01:38.:01:39.

the investment has been a long time coming.

:01:40.:01:48.

You have to go back a long way to hear people talking up

:01:49.:01:51.

Wolverhampton as a place of prosperity.

:01:52.:01:53.

But after years of failed regeneration,

:01:54.:01:56.

of missed opportunity, the economic clouds are parting.

:01:57.:02:07.

a staggering ?3.7 billion is currently being invested into

:02:08.:02:13.

Wolverhampton. It's the largest Invesco meant in years.

:02:14.:02:17.

The Mander Centre is being rebuilt, grim old market buildings are making

:02:18.:02:20.

way for a massive retail corridor on the Westside, and the decaying

:02:21.:02:25.

railway station will be rebuilt as part of a

:02:26.:02:28.

And this is i9 - a prestige office development,

:02:29.:02:37.

occupying 50,000 square feet of land next to the historic

:02:38.:02:40.

Today, the plans went on show in Cannes, where international

:02:41.:02:45.

With 2000 and eight in the economic recession, Wolverhampton was hit the

:02:46.:03:01.

same as other people. The last few years we've been moving into an

:03:02.:03:04.

economic recovery phase. Now we're into the really confident phase

:03:05.:03:05.

where we know we can do things. Around 2,500 jobs will be

:03:06.:03:11.

created in the city centre, when the Wolverhampton interchange

:03:12.:03:14.

is complete. There's some brilliant work being

:03:15.:03:20.

done about how you rigid generator cities. If you can keep that 20 to

:03:21.:03:30.

30-year-olds in the city, the city will regenerate.

:03:31.:03:30.

But for many Wulfrunians, large scale regeneration

:03:31.:03:32.

like this is decades overdue, so you can forgive some cynicism.

:03:33.:03:35.

You've got places like Bentley Bridge, St John's retail centre, you

:03:36.:03:45.

can actually do your shopping without coming into town centre. It

:03:46.:03:49.

just ate a little bit more, a bit more shine to it. You have people

:03:50.:03:53.

who live on the street and that is not good if you are doing with

:03:54.:03:57.

generation. You want to take care of your people.

:03:58.:03:57.

With a growing student population, the city is becoming one

:03:58.:04:00.

Investment brings new challenges then, and here the demand

:04:01.:04:04.

for affordable homes has never been higher.

:04:05.:04:08.

Ben Godfrey, BBC Midlands Today, Wolverhampton.

:04:09.:04:15.

Joining us now from Wolverhampton, is Ninder Johal from

:04:16.:04:17.

the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership.

:04:18.:04:18.

There are some big numbers here -

:04:19.:04:20.

for the interchange area and this new office

:04:21.:04:27.

It is all ready been secured and we are hoping if everything goes to

:04:28.:04:37.

plan everything should be up and ready at the end of 2018. Apologies

:04:38.:04:47.

for the interruption. We'll see if we can go back once we've gotten rid

:04:48.:04:49.

of the interloper! How much does the regeneration

:04:50.:04:52.

of the City depend on investors I think if you have great products

:04:53.:05:07.

to sell you need to go where the action is. And the action is where

:05:08.:05:12.

all the global players come together and if that is the place you need to

:05:13.:05:15.

be that is the place you need to be. And if you are not there then you're

:05:16.:05:20.

not serious about your products, your place. You will be missed and

:05:21.:05:25.

people will know that. Well, there is certainly no shortage of

:05:26.:05:27.

enthusiasm in Wolverhampton! The point was made in the report

:05:28.:05:28.

about taking care of the people of the City -

:05:29.:05:31.

not just office space, but affordable homes,

:05:32.:05:33.

plans for that? Absolutely. If you look at Bilston,

:05:34.:05:43.

there is ready and village being built there. We should be looking at

:05:44.:05:51.

another 13 to 15,000 homes. Across the country we are looking at

:05:52.:05:56.

40,000. For the region to work it needs housing, infrastructure and

:05:57.:05:59.

with this kind of investment you are taking all the boxes. Thank you very

:06:00.:06:02.

much. BMW workers at the Hams Hall engine

:06:03.:06:05.

plant in Warwickshire could be going out on strike,

:06:06.:06:08.

in protest at the car makers plans BMW wants to close the current

:06:09.:06:11.

scheme for everyone at the end of May -

:06:12.:06:16.

workers say they stand to lose Hands off our pensions!

:06:17.:06:19.

Hands off our pensions! They've never protested

:06:20.:06:26.

like this before - but then there's never been

:06:27.:06:29.

so much at stake. ?150,000?

:06:30.:06:31.

It's roughly about ?130,000. That's what they reckon they'll lose

:06:32.:06:35.

if BMW push through with a plan to end the current final salary

:06:36.:06:40.

pension scheme by May of this year. Last year BMW reported record

:06:41.:06:45.

profits of ?6 billion. There's real anger here today -

:06:46.:06:51.

in fact, industrial relations are said to be at their

most fraught since the They say they are proud

provision in the past but, crucially, they want

toensure and protect pension With an ageing population though,

:07:08.:07:10.

some argue big companies like BMW can't afford final salary

:07:11.:07:16.

pensions any more. Profitable companies,

:07:17.:07:20.

it's part of the package they offer. Our members have actually

:07:21.:07:24.

given up some of their pay in the past to make sure this

:07:25.:07:26.

pension scheme operates properly. Many of the 600 staff

Today, near Coleshill. Unemployment in the region

:08:01.:08:06.

has bucked the national trend and is on the rise,

:08:07.:08:08.

according to new figures. The jobless total in

:08:09.:08:10.

the West Midlands rose by nine thousand in the last quarter -

:08:11.:08:13.

meaning 160 thousand people That's the equivalent of 5.6%

:08:14.:08:15.

of the working population - 261 motorists have been

:08:16.:08:20.

given new heavier fines for using mobile phones

:08:21.:08:27.

while driving in the West Midlands. In a week-long clamp-down,

:08:28.:08:31.

offenders included 30 lorry drivers, a driving instructor,

and a driver accessing mobile All those caught have

been fined ?200 - A former governor allegedly involved

in the Trojan Horse scandal in Birmingham schools,

is appealing against a ban imposed on him

by the Department for Education. Tahir Alam, who was chair

of governors at Park View in Alum Rock, is barred

is one of the things But for Kim and Paul Lovatt

:09:37.:09:39.

from Stoke-on-trent, cuddles have been few

:09:40.:09:41.

and far betwen. Their five-year-old daughter, Poppy,

was born with a rare skin condition It means her skin is so fragile

from her armpits. There were three main types of EB

from mild to very severe. And Poppy as the type of EB

where as she gets older, hopefully, it will be

:11:18.:11:20.

easier to manage. Mummy does my dressings

and I help her. On her back, there were scabs on her

"caretakers" have volunteered to live without modern comforts

if you look over the river, yes, they are very, very different,

but actually they really balance of the landscape and the mansion

house with something that actually is very 21st-century - for me it's

really, really important. Built with temporary

with other people's What we're trying

:14:24.:14:25.

to do is we're trying to do a project

about climate change. It's the idea that, this world

without traffic jams and central heating and Kim Kardashian

art's always like that, isn't it? If you make art that pleases

:14:52.:14:57.

everyone, it's really rubbish art! So, yeah, when not even trying

:14:58.:15:00.

to please everyone, you know? We're confident that we've

:15:01.:15:03.

made a good thing here. From next week series of volunteer

:15:04.:15:08.

caretakers will live in the dome for a week at a time,

:15:09.:15:11.

turning their back on the comforts of home for a once-in-a-lifetime

experience. Well, I think there's plenty

:15:18.:15:19.

of people that put their names down to be caretakers,

:15:20.:15:22.

so we're one of the lucky ones, There's everything

:15:23.:15:24.

here you need, so... To survive, anyway -

:15:25.:15:27.

let's put it that way. When you live in a space

:15:28.:15:29.

like this you make with what you have and you appreciate

:15:30.:15:32.

everything you have, so it's an exercise of, is almost a social

:15:33.:15:36.

experiment in itself, you know? If you fancy a peek

:15:37.:15:39.

at an artistic life of the grid, the dome opens

:15:40.:15:41.

to the public this weekend. Time for sport - Ian Winter has

:15:42.:15:52.

joined me, not a vintage night if for our football clubs -

:15:53.:15:55.

but one exception. But a couple of well-timed

:15:56.:16:00.

substitutions inspired Wolves to a well-deserved win,

:16:01.:16:03.

away to Brentford. It was quite refreshing

:16:04.:16:06.

to hear both managers agree And Wolves are now four points

:16:07.:16:09.

clear of the Championship It must be infuriating to be

:16:10.:16:13.

a Wolves fan this season. They were booed off on Saturday,

:16:14.:16:20.

and last night, they fell But their battling

:16:21.:16:23.

performance deserved better. And their patience paid off with two

:16:24.:16:26.

goals in the the last four minutes. Matt Doherty made it 1-1,

:16:27.:16:30.

before Heider Costa sealed And both managers agreed,

:16:31.:16:32.

Wolves were the better side Not quite such a rosy

:16:33.:16:39.

picture in League One. Walsall missed the chance to move

:16:40.:16:42.

closer to the play-offs, And just look at the basement battle

:16:43.:16:48.

to avoid relegation. Shrewsbury, who didn't play last

:16:49.:16:51.

night, have that five point cushion above Port Vale,

:16:52.:16:54.

who lost 2-1 defeat at Northampton. but a late, late goal made it

:16:55.:16:57.

a disappointing night It was the same old story

:16:58.:17:02.

for Coventry as Southend scored twice in the first

:17:03.:17:08.

:17:09.:17:10.

at the Festival was more exciting than last night's football, as

:17:11.:17:19.

the Robins lost 3-0 away to Exeter. I'm not too sure about Cheltenham's

some flash photography. Ladies and gentlemen -

:18:24.:18:36.

the reason we're here, the homecoming of the newly-crowned

:18:37.:18:38.

WBA world champion - Kal Yafai. This was the man they'd

:18:39.:18:41.

all come to see. After winning the world title

:18:42.:18:43.

in Manchester in December, Kal Yafai will make his first defence

:18:44.:18:46.

in Birmingham in May. And just keep building

:18:47.:18:48.

World Championship boxing here, in Birmingham,

:18:49.:18:52.

and then bring one of the other champions over

:18:53.:18:54.

to Just having a world title

:18:55.:18:55.

fought here in Birmingham is massive but to be able

:18:56.:18:59.

to bring a unification fight That success has been built

:19:00.:19:02.

on relentless hours in the gym under the guidance of Max McCracken,

:19:03.:19:06.

whose brother Rob came close to being the first

:19:07.:19:09.

Brummie world champion. And while Yafai is the star turn,

:19:10.:19:12.

the full bill showcases the current With Sam Eggington's European title

:19:13.:19:16.

shot and of course that first world title defence for Kal Yafai,

:19:17.:19:22.

this really is an amazing time for boxing

:19:23.:19:24.

in the second city. There's always been a very strong

:19:25.:19:28.

boxing community in Now it's time to reach out

:19:29.:19:30.

to the casual audience, the people that like good

:19:31.:19:34.

sport, good entertainment, and we

:19:35.:19:36.

want them to come along, enjoy

:19:37.:19:37.

the fact that Birmingham has got some

:19:38.:19:38.

great fighters, now world champions as well, and come

:19:39.:19:40.

and follow their journey. Kal's brother Gamal is also tipped

:19:41.:19:44.

to be a future world champion and then there's Sam Eggington who's

:19:45.:19:47.

rapidly climbing The car really compare his story to

:19:48.:19:58.

mind because he's an Olympian. It's hard to beat that. But having a

:19:59.:20:07.

Birmingham world champion definitely pushes Birmingham boxing forward in

:20:08.:20:10.

general. Like I say, it's a big thing and hopefully I can mimic what

:20:11.:20:13.
