This is East Midlands Today with Dominic Heale and Anne Davies. Our

:00:04.:00:06.

top story tonight: Thorntons unwraps some shock news for the

:00:06.:00:14.

high street. As it celebrates its centenary, the chocolate maker says

:00:14.:00:19.

it may close up to 180 stores have been there -- over the next three

:00:19.:00:23.

years nationwide. Or so the news cancer treatment giving hope to

:00:23.:00:26.

patients, this is the first-of-its- kind in the Midlands. This machine

:00:26.:00:31.

can hit it, the exact spot we wanted, and not destroy too many

:00:31.:00:33.

cells. Plus the school that's facing

:00:33.:00:40.

almost a week of strike action by teachers. And I am at Wollerton

:00:40.:00:45.

Hall catching up on those who managed to get a secret look at the

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:01:03.

Good evening and welcome to Tuesday's programme. First tonight,

:01:03.:01:08.

more high street gloom for the East Midlands. The chocolate-making firm,

:01:08.:01:10.

Thorntons, is shedding hundreds of jobs and closing dozens of shops.

:01:10.:01:13.

The company, which is based at Alfreton in Derbyshire, says it

:01:13.:01:18.

wants to expand its online business and develop new products. Anne has

:01:18.:01:22.

more details. The news of the shake-up came at

:01:22.:01:30.

about 7am this morning. At the moment, Thorntons has 364 stores

:01:30.:01:33.

across the country. The plan is to close 120 of those, with the

:01:33.:01:40.

possibility of 60 more being cut. One prediction is that more than

:01:40.:01:43.

1,000 jobs are threatened, but the company hasn't yet put a figure on

:01:43.:01:46.

it. James Roberson has been examining the reaction to today's

:01:46.:01:55.

In Derby this morning, staff at one of the two company-owned stores in

:01:55.:01:59.

the city were trying to attract customers. The future of this

:01:59.:02:01.

Thorntons store, and around 120 others nationwide, is now under

:02:01.:02:06.

review. Over the next three years, dozens of stores could close as

:02:06.:02:16.

their leases expire. It could mean anything between 750 and 1,100 job

:02:16.:02:24.

losses. It is a lot of jobs to lose, and a lot of jobs are going the

:02:24.:02:29.

same way. Were have not got Woolworths, what have we got left?

:02:29.:02:33.

What are we going to do? Are we going to survive? Are don't think

:02:33.:02:38.

it is fair to the high street, they keep taking things into these

:02:38.:02:40.

centres. Thorntons, like other retailers,

:02:40.:02:43.

has seen the drop in footfall on the high street affect sales at its

:02:44.:02:46.

shops. That's despite major revamps of stores like this one in

:02:46.:02:54.

Kingston-on-Thames, and rebranding of products in the last few years.

:02:54.:02:58.

The hot spring has not been good for selling chocolate. Now the firm

:02:58.:03:02.

wants to concentrate on other areas of sales that make them less

:03:02.:03:05.

dependent on those traditional periods like Easter, Christmas and

:03:05.:03:15.
:03:15.:03:17.

Mother's Day bus stop it will focus now on online sales. On creating

:03:17.:03:19.

new lines and slightly cheaper products, and increasing sales

:03:19.:03:28.

through other retailers. We looked at research and we found that one

:03:28.:03:34.

supermarket was serving 60 types of chocolate. There was a great threat

:03:34.:03:36.

an opportunity to businesses like this.

:03:36.:03:39.

Thorntons has also announced that chocolates produced at its factory

:03:39.:03:42.

in Somercotes in Derbyshire will not now be distributed by its own

:03:42.:03:45.

staff. The operation and 134 staff are being outsourced to freight

:03:45.:03:48.

hauliers, DHL. As Thorntons approaches its 100th birthday, with

:03:48.:03:50.

belt-tightening on the cards, it seems centenary celebrations at the

:03:50.:04:00.
:04:00.:04:06.

With us now is Professor Joshua Bamfield from the Centre for Retail

:04:06.:04:09.

Research which is based in Newark. What's your reaction to the

:04:09.:04:16.

decision by Thorntons to shut so many stores? It is a shock reaction

:04:16.:04:21.

but it is probably irrational in the circumstances given that online

:04:21.:04:25.

retailing and selling through other stores seems to be much more

:04:25.:04:28.

successful to them than the existing stores they have got and

:04:28.:04:33.

trade as Thorntons. If you have got a successful product as they

:04:33.:04:36.

certainly seem to have, it makes perfect sense to sell it on line

:04:36.:04:40.

and have a bit of shelf space in the big supermarkets but if this

:04:40.:04:43.

process continues, our high streets will look very different, won't

:04:43.:04:53.
:04:53.:04:53.

they? Yes and Thorntons is one of the most -- more interesting shops.

:04:53.:04:58.

People will regret Thorntons shops closing. Do you see a point where

:04:58.:05:04.

maybe it is just supermarkets with sections for Thorntons and things

:05:04.:05:08.

like that and traditional high- street shops gone? No, I don't

:05:08.:05:12.

think so. We feel that online will grow by perhaps 20% in retailing

:05:12.:05:16.

but we think that really the property owners in high streets

:05:16.:05:21.

have really got to reduce their rent. They have got to bring in

:05:21.:05:24.

more independent stores because that provide the interest and the

:05:24.:05:28.

difference compared to other high streets and there needs to be a lot

:05:28.:05:31.

of remodelling because many retailers complain that existing

:05:31.:05:38.

high streets, these stores are no longer suitable. To go back to the

:05:38.:05:42.

product that Thorntons produces, is it good enough in the current

:05:42.:05:46.

international market? There are rivals for higher end confectionery.

:05:46.:05:52.

That is true and a few years ago, you could say that Thorntons was

:05:52.:05:59.

seen as elegance, and the high end of chocolate product. I am not sure

:05:59.:06:03.

that is the case any more but nonetheless, it is a quality

:06:03.:06:07.

product. It has a good reputation and you could see they will want to

:06:07.:06:12.

defend it as hard as possible. have been hearing an awful lot of

:06:12.:06:16.

shops closing on the high street, is it really bad out there for

:06:16.:06:24.

retailers at the moment? Yes, Next were told they were running up the

:06:24.:06:30.

down escalator and we have been seeing figures something like

:06:30.:06:36.

15,015 1,000 employees have lost their jobs in returning -- 15,000

:06:36.:06:41.

employees. But things look like they are getting worse. Thank you

:06:41.:06:45.

for coming to speak to us. And there was another blow for

:06:45.:06:47.

retailing in Derbyshire as the historic Bennetts store announced

:06:47.:06:50.

it would be closing one of its shops. One of the country's oldest

:06:50.:06:53.

department stores, the company has shops in Derby, Ashbourne and

:06:53.:06:57.

Bakewell. Now the Bakewell store is being closed because of a dip in

:06:57.:07:00.

trade over the last three years. The other two branches will remain

:07:00.:07:07.

Still to come on the programme, the secrets of the Batcave. A

:07:17.:07:19.

tantalising glimpse of the filming And how these pupils are hoping to

:07:19.:07:27.

get first place when it comes to A young mother has appeared in

:07:27.:07:32.

court accused of shaking her seven- week-old baby to death. The 24-

:07:32.:07:34.

year-old denies killing her daughter at the family's former

:07:34.:07:37.

home in Leicestershire. Victoria Hicks joins us now from the city's

:07:37.:07:47.
:07:47.:07:51.

Crown Court. What's the background? The baby was born 6.5 weeks

:07:51.:07:54.

premature and she died when she was just seven weeks old. The

:07:54.:07:58.

prosecution told the court that her mother had gone out in the garden

:07:58.:08:02.

to hang out the washing. She had a cigarette and then returned 10

:08:02.:08:06.

minutes later to find the baby lifeless in her Moses basket. We

:08:06.:08:11.

heard the mother's frantic call to the pan at -- paramedics and that

:08:11.:08:16.

was played to the court. We heard her cry out "my baby is dead, help

:08:16.:08:26.
:08:26.:08:28.

me". She thought the baby's big comedown. Tragically the baby's

:08:28.:08:33.

life-support machine was turned off later that day. The baby's mother

:08:33.:08:40.

held her head in her hands. The prosecution said no natural cause

:08:40.:08:44.

for the baby's death other than injuries consistent with having

:08:44.:08:48.

been shaken. The baby's mother said she shaped the baby to try to

:08:48.:08:54.

revive her but the prosecution says the injuries were not consistent

:08:54.:08:58.

with collapsing first and then being shaken. The baby's mother

:09:08.:09:08.

denies manslaughter and this case Cancer patients in this part of the

:09:08.:09:11.

world are now benefiting from a new form of radiotherapy. Nottingham

:09:11.:09:14.

City Hospital is the first in the Midlands to offer tomotherapy. The

:09:14.:09:17.

multi-million pound machine offers more targeted treatment for head

:09:17.:09:19.

and neck cancers. Our health correspondent, Rob Sissons, has had

:09:19.:09:29.
:09:29.:09:34.

Michael goes for the new form of radiotherapy five days a week with

:09:34.:09:37.

difficult to target tumours, tomotherapy offers hope for the

:09:37.:09:42.

cure. I have got one up the right hand side, one at the back of my

:09:42.:09:46.

tongue and one on the side of my brain. The steamers are being

:09:46.:09:50.

targeted precisely with tomotherapy. Nottingham City Hospital is one of

:09:50.:10:00.
:10:00.:10:02.

only five in the NHS across England which has a machine. We get a

:10:02.:10:06.

spiral of dose distributed in the patient's body. Michael is one of

:10:06.:10:10.

the very first patients to use this equipment in Nottingham and

:10:10.:10:14.

eventually they are hoping to treat up to 30 patients every day.

:10:14.:10:17.

Although he only has the treatment for minutes, it feels longer.

:10:17.:10:25.

was tiring afterwards. Late in the afternoon. It is different to what

:10:25.:10:30.

we have used before and so it is interesting for us. You can see the

:10:30.:10:38.

salivary glands here... Spare in healthy cells -- sparing healthy

:10:38.:10:45.

cells of a high dose of radiation can help improvements. We know that

:10:45.:10:49.

cancer patients do very well indeed after this treatment and it is

:10:49.:10:52.

among the best in the country. However what we want to do is not

:10:53.:10:56.

only cure people but help them to live well in the long term.

:10:56.:11:03.

hopefully after sailing through therapy, Michael wants to go on

:11:03.:11:13.
:11:13.:11:15.

Rob is with us now. This is in addition to a existing techniques,

:11:15.:11:23.

not instead of? Yes, it will offer more options to patients in the

:11:23.:11:27.

East Midlands. There are gruelling treatment but this is another

:11:27.:11:33.

option. These cancers are detected early enough, there is a really

:11:33.:11:37.

good cure rate. A police officer was thrown out of

:11:37.:11:40.

court today after listening to messages on his mobile phone. It

:11:40.:11:43.

happened at Leicester Crown Court while evidence was being given

:11:43.:11:46.

during a murder trial. The officer was asked to leave after he was

:11:46.:11:52.

seen listening to his voicemail. Public meetings have been held

:11:52.:11:55.

about plans to set up a drugs rehabilitation centre next to a

:11:55.:11:58.

primary school. Councillors are considering turning the building,

:11:58.:12:03.

known as Florence House in Hinckley, into a treatment centre. It would

:12:03.:12:06.

be next door to a primary school. Last week, many parents said it was

:12:06.:12:10.

totally inappropriate. The plans have been deferred to allow more

:12:11.:12:15.

time for public consultations. Work aimed at helping vulnerable

:12:15.:12:20.

young children in Nottingham has won a national award. The city

:12:20.:12:22.

council's running several pilot projects aimed at reducing child

:12:22.:12:26.

poverty. The Early Intervention scheme aims to solve problems

:12:26.:12:31.

before children start school and save money in the long-term. It's

:12:31.:12:35.

now been given a national industry award.

:12:35.:12:37.

The political war of words over this Thursday's national strike by

:12:37.:12:42.

public sector workers is warming up. Among those due to walk out,

:12:42.:12:46.

members of Britain's biggest teaching union. But at one

:12:46.:12:48.

Derbyshire school it'll actually be the third consecutive day of action,

:12:48.:12:55.

as Simon Hare reports. Beauty therapy trainees at Heanor

:12:55.:12:58.

Gate Science College were adding a touch of sparkle to their studies

:12:58.:13:01.

today. But for many pupils there are no lessons today and tomorrow

:13:02.:13:05.

over plans to turn it into an academy and on Thursday as part of

:13:05.:13:15.
:13:15.:13:16.

the national action on pensions. have to be mindful of health and

:13:16.:13:20.

safety and we just looked at the day's individually and we do the

:13:20.:13:29.

best we can to work at which students can be in. We planned this

:13:29.:13:33.

action in March and we postponed because we thought we had an

:13:33.:13:36.

agreement with the Government, they went back on that, we tried to get

:13:36.:13:40.

an agreement confirmed with them again. It failed and therefore we

:13:40.:13:43.

had to take this action today and tomorrow.

:13:43.:13:45.

Younger pupils have been given extra homework, but the industrial

:13:45.:13:51.

action has caused problems for some parents. I am on holiday today but

:13:51.:13:56.

my wife works at another school in the area. If I had been at work

:13:56.:14:00.

today and if she was at work today, it would have been a real problem.

:14:00.:14:04.

I can understand the concerns of the parents and the inconvenience

:14:05.:14:09.

but these are key issues for staff and we have to respect that they

:14:09.:14:14.

have the right to express their concerns about future Government

:14:14.:14:16.

policy. A And tomorrow night we'll have more

:14:16.:14:19.

information on how Thursday's strike is expected to effect the

:14:19.:14:29.
:14:29.:14:37.

Earlier today we told you about a family in Nottingham who were

:14:38.:14:41.

desperate to have a shrub area in front of their home cleared because

:14:41.:14:45.

they felt it was dangerous. Kay Greensmith contacted us about this

:14:45.:14:54.

green verge in Arnold that had been left in a state of ruin. Her family

:14:54.:14:57.

are not as happy stepping out of the front garden because of this

:14:57.:15:01.

green verge. They say it has been left in a state of ruin and

:15:01.:15:05.

combined with an uneven footbath, it is posing a serious risk. I am

:15:05.:15:08.

concerned because when I get out of my car I have got a three-year-old.

:15:08.:15:13.

She gets the rose bushes in her eyes. She is walking to school

:15:13.:15:20.

daily and dripping. The steps are not safe. Her mother says she

:15:20.:15:24.

tripped over a slab and fell. Of the most frustrating part is that

:15:24.:15:28.

no one is taking responsibility. Every department we speak to passes

:15:28.:15:32.

you on to another and then back to the original one. Nobody is

:15:32.:15:35.

accepting responsibility for. we approached the borough council

:15:36.:15:40.

yesterday, they said it is unclear who has responsibility for the

:15:40.:15:43.

maintenance of the area but they planned to make the area safe and

:15:43.:15:48.

tidy. 24 hours later, the area has now been cleared up. It family say

:15:48.:15:58.
:15:58.:16:02.

they are delighted and it is a huge The future of Sherwood Pines Forest

:16:02.:16:05.

Park is to be debated following announcements about cuts to the

:16:05.:16:08.

Forestry Commission. Last month the Commission was told it will lose a

:16:08.:16:13.

quarter of its budget by 2015. Tonight members of the public are

:16:13.:16:16.

being asked to give their views on the future of Sherwood Pines and

:16:16.:16:18.

can meet those in charge of overseeing the changes.

:16:18.:16:21.

The Support Derbyshire charity is backing a national campaign to get

:16:21.:16:26.

free eye tests for those over 60. According to research by Age UK,

:16:26.:16:29.

nearly 40,000 people in Derbyshire haven't had an eye test for at

:16:29.:16:32.

least two years. Figures suggest one in every 14 falls suffered by

:16:32.:16:37.

an elderly person is linked to vision problems.

:16:37.:16:40.

Two schools in Nottinghamshire are swapping the whiteboard for the red

:16:40.:16:44.

cross this week. Pupils from East Leake are taking part in a national

:16:44.:16:48.

first aid competition. But the pressure is really on because

:16:49.:16:58.
:16:59.:16:59.

they've won the title for the past English, maths and now first aid.

:16:59.:17:02.

It's all on the timetable here at Lantern Lane Primary. For months,

:17:02.:17:04.

these pupils and a group from neighbouring Harry Carlton

:17:04.:17:10.

Secondary have been given training by St John's Ambulance. Now their

:17:10.:17:13.

skills will be examined at a first aid competition being held in

:17:13.:17:19.

London tomorrow. The pupils will be given a variety

:17:19.:17:22.

of real life settings to deal with. They'll be tested on their

:17:22.:17:25.

knowledge, the treatment they give and how well they work as a team.

:17:25.:17:28.

These incidents are only a rehearsal but some pupils have

:17:28.:17:36.

already had first-hand experience of the real thing. I was in Paris

:17:36.:17:40.

with my family and my dad got a bee sting and they got it out with a

:17:40.:17:46.

credit card. I was out in my garden with my own sister and she fell

:17:46.:17:51.

over and I went inside and washed the wind and put a dressing on.

:17:51.:17:54.

This morning somebody in my class had a nosebleed and I treated them

:17:54.:18:00.

for that. Out in the playground, they are the first on the scene.

:18:00.:18:04.

Because the school is so busy, knowing the difference can save

:18:04.:18:08.

some money's life and putting those skills and showing their friends

:18:08.:18:10.

what they can do can make a difference of.

:18:10.:18:16.

A �1,000 prize is at stake for the winning school. It's an amazing

:18:16.:18:19.

achievement for the children, they have worked so hard since showing

:18:19.:18:24.

an initial interest in first aid and there is a competitive element.

:18:24.:18:27.

We have won for two years at the junior level and they would like to

:18:27.:18:30.

win again. But more importantly, the chance to

:18:30.:18:32.

demonstrate how their newly acquired skills could mean the

:18:32.:18:42.
:18:42.:18:43.

difference between a life lost and Is that boy all right, he looked

:18:44.:18:49.

quite poorly! I am useless at that sort of thing, I could not do

:18:49.:18:52.

anything. A full weather forecast coming up,

:18:52.:18:59.

are we in for another muggy night? Once the showers clear away, we are

:18:59.:19:02.

looking at cooler temperatures tonight so hopefully we might get

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:20.

some sleep tonight! More weather Derby County are close to making

:19:20.:19:23.

their seventh signing of the summer. The Aberdeen striker Chris Maguire

:19:23.:19:26.

is expected to finally join the Rams. The 22-year-old is a Scotland

:19:26.:19:29.

international and was out of contract north of the border, but

:19:29.:19:33.

he'll still cost around �400,000 because of his age.

:19:33.:19:36.

And a sixth signing for Notts County too. Left-sided player Jeff

:19:36.:19:39.

Hughes arrives at Meadow Lane on a free transfer after scoring 11

:19:39.:19:42.

goals for Bristol Rovers last season.

:19:42.:19:45.

Derbyshire bowler Steffan Jones will retire at the end of the

:19:45.:19:48.

season, to take up a job in teaching. The 37-year-old has

:19:48.:19:51.

turned down a three-year deal to stay at the county as player and

:19:51.:19:53.

coach. Meanwhile, Derbyshire have been in

:19:53.:20:01.

cracking form. They got to 367 before reducing Glamorgan to 60 for

:20:01.:20:04.

five. The hosts have recovered since then. But Derbyshire in

:20:04.:20:07.

control. He's the man who makes sure that

:20:07.:20:10.

the Wimbledon fans are always kept in the loop. Mansfield's John Parry

:20:10.:20:13.

made his name as a top umpire and had the odd run-in with John

:20:14.:20:16.

McEnroe but now, as far as the visitors to SW19 are concerned,

:20:17.:20:24.

he's the voice of the tournament. The morning rush for the best seats

:20:24.:20:28.

in the house. But even at this most genteel of sporting tournaments,

:20:28.:20:36.

the fans need a little persuasion to keep calm. In the interests of
