This is East Midlands Today with Kylie Pentelow and Dominic Heale.

Our top story tonight: The convicted killer released from

:00:09.:00:19.
:00:19.:00:20.

prison who went on to stab two neighbours to death.

:00:20.:00:25.

This is self-styled angel of mercy, Andrew Dawson and these other flats

where he will two innocent men. is an evil man. He planned both of

:00:30.:00:33.

these murders and planned to escape from the police.

:00:33.:00:39.

Also, the crashers caused by a blind spot on foreign lorries and

the families left to grieve. We know we cannot bring my father

:00:43.:00:47.

back. But what we would like to highlight is the prevention of

:00:47.:00:51.

other families having to go through what we have suffered.

:00:51.:00:55.

These massive turbines will be fully operational and the first

:00:55.:00:59.

commercial wind farm in Leicestershire.

:00:59.:01:05.

Fine out why this question, "do you want salt and vinegar on that".

:01:05.:01:10.

Might be a thing of the past. Good Evening, welcome to Monday's

:01:10.:01:15.

programme. First tonight, the convicted murderer who was released

:01:15.:01:18.

to kill again. Andrew Dawson dubbed himself "the Angel of Mercy" after

:01:18.:01:24.

stabbing two neighbours to death. He'd moved into their block of

:01:24.:01:27.

flats in Derby just weeks before. Probation officials insist Dawson

:01:27.:01:30.

was handled correctly and there was no indication he would commit

:01:30.:01:35.

further murders. Simon Hare was at Nottingham Crown Court earlier

:01:36.:01:45.
:01:46.:01:46.

today when Dawson was sentenced. Good evening.

:01:46.:01:49.

Andrew Dawson was today told by a judge that he'll serve the rest of

:01:49.:01:51.

his life behind bars. He'd previously been released after

:01:51.:01:55.

serving almost 30 for killing a man. Today he admitted two similar cold-

:01:55.:02:02.

blooded murders. Committed while he was out on licence from prison.

:02:02.:02:05.

This was the moment Andrew Dawson was arrested. He'd been traced to

:02:05.:02:09.

Whitehaven in Cumbria. He jumped into the harbour but was eventually

:02:09.:02:13.

pulled from the sea and a taser had to be used for him to be fully

:02:13.:02:15.

restrained. He'd been named by Derbyshire police as the prime

:02:15.:02:18.

suspect in the murder of his neighbour, 66 year old Dave

:02:18.:02:21.

Matthews. Just hours after Dawson's arrest, police discovered the body

:02:21.:02:24.

of a second man 58 year old, Paul Hancock, who'd been filmed by a

:02:24.:02:28.

shop's security camera on the day he died. Both were found in the

:02:28.:02:31.

bath at their separate flats at Waterford Drive in Chaddesden in

:02:31.:02:35.

Derby last July. They'd been repeatedly stabbed. Andrew Dawson

:02:35.:02:39.

had only moved into the same building just weeks beforehand.

:02:39.:02:42.

Today he went on trial after denying murder, but changed his

:02:42.:02:51.

pleas to guilty after hearing details of the case against him.

:02:51.:02:56.

is a very evil man. He planned both of these murders. And he had

:02:56.:03:00.

planned to escape from the police. He certainly made a lot of attempts

:03:00.:03:04.

to destroy forensic evidence. Dawson's flat police discovered a

:03:04.:03:06.

notebook which bore the impression of a letter he'd written confessing

:03:06.:03:10.

to one of the killings and signed "Yours, the Angel of Mercy". As a

:03:10.:03:13.

teenager, Dawson was given a life sentence in 1982 after admitting

:03:13.:03:16.

the murder of an elderly man in his flat at Ormskirk in Lancashire,

:03:16.:03:22.

where Dawson's originally from. He'd been released on licence from

:03:22.:03:24.

Sudbury Prison in 1999, but was subsequently recalled to Nottingham

:03:24.:03:34.
:03:34.:03:36.

Prison three times. We always knew he was difficult. But there was

:03:36.:03:40.

nothing in all of the years to indicate the things we heard in

:03:40.:03:44.

court that he was planning to kill again. If When Dawson was arrested

:03:44.:03:46.

he was armed with seven kitchen knives. He told psychiatrists he

:03:46.:03:50.

felt driven to kill both men as he feared he was about to be recalled

:03:50.:03:53.

to jail again for assaulting a previous landlord.

:03:53.:03:56.

A final report into how Dawson was handled is due to be submitted on

:03:56.:04:00.

Wednesday. It's expected to conclude all correct procedures

:04:00.:04:05.

were followed. We heard that he later confessed to wanting to kill

:04:05.:04:08.

someone at Markeaton Park in 2007 after being arrested But for the

:04:08.:04:11.

families of Dave Matthews and Paul Hancock, several questions remain

:04:11.:04:20.

and Dawson's full life sentence has come too late.

:04:20.:04:22.

The Department for Transport today dismissed claims that it could

:04:22.:04:25.

after all reopen a multi-million pound rail contract in favour of

:04:25.:04:31.

the Derby-based train maker Bombardier. Documents leaked to a

:04:31.:04:33.

national newspaper appeared to contradict the Prime Minister's

:04:33.:04:43.
:04:43.:04:44.

claims that his hands were tied on the issue.

:04:44.:04:47.

The Prime Minister in South Africa today on a trade mission. Absent is

:04:47.:04:50.

Colin Walton, the boss of Derby- based Bombardier. Although invited

:04:50.:04:53.

to accompany the Prime Minister, he dropped out after a call from

:04:53.:04:56.

Downing Street at the weekend. Could Bombardier's anger over

:04:56.:05:02.

losing a government rail contract be the reason? Maybe this is

:05:02.:05:05.

another reason? Department for Transport documents leaked to the

:05:05.:05:07.

Daily Mirror appear to question David Cameron's assertion that he

:05:07.:05:13.

was powerless to intervene. A clause in the original tender

:05:13.:05:16.

document that awarded the contract to build new carriages for

:05:16.:05:18.

Thameslink to Seimens rather than Bombardier, gives the government an

:05:18.:05:21.

option to reconsider the deal. think they should be looking very

:05:21.:05:24.

hard, particularly in light of the Mirror's article today. They should

:05:24.:05:27.

be look very hard at awarding it to Bombardier because it means so much

:05:27.:05:32.

to the local people. The Department for Transport, in a brief statement,

:05:32.:05:34.

said the clause allowed only minor changes to the original contract

:05:34.:05:39.

awarded to Seimens. But it's further ammunition for Derbyshire

:05:39.:05:42.

MPs when they see the Prime Minister on his return from South

:05:42.:05:46.

Africa. We need some confidence in Derby and if the Prime Minister

:05:47.:05:51.

does a U-turn, it'll be the best U- turn he's ever made. 1400 jobs are

:05:51.:05:55.

to go at Bombardier in Derby. The Thameslink contract and the very

:05:55.:05:57.

future of Britain's last-remaining train makers is now to be

:05:57.:06:06.

investigated by the influential Commons Transport Committee.

:06:06.:06:09.

You're watching East Midlands Today, later: When cyclists and

:06:09.:06:14.

pedestrians clash. We find out why the police are having to step in,

:06:14.:06:23.

in what's supposed to be a bike- free zone.

:06:23.:06:27.

The twin sister of a woman who was murdered in Australia says she had

:06:27.:06:32.

expressed concern about her safety before her death. Sally Brooks died

:06:32.:06:35.

on the day she was due to return permanently to Nottinghamshire with

:06:35.:06:42.

her three children to begin a new life.

:06:42.:06:45.

This is one of the last photos of Sally Brooks, taken in May visiting

:06:45.:06:49.

her father in Stapleford who's very ill. Sally had decided to return

:06:49.:06:52.

home so that her twin sister Alison could help bring up her three

:06:52.:06:56.

children. For two and a half years she'd struggled as a single parent

:06:56.:06:59.

and full time IT consultant having been married for ten years in

:06:59.:07:04.

Australia. On July 1st, the alarm was raised when she failed to pick

:07:04.:07:07.

up her children from school. She was found at her Melbourne home

:07:07.:07:16.

with serious head injuries and died ten days later. I thought the last

:07:16.:07:20.

of my twin sister was more than I could bear. But it was nothing

:07:20.:07:23.

compared to seeing the faces of her children when they were told by the

:07:23.:07:29.

police she had been deliberately hurt. Worse was to come when we saw

:07:29.:07:33.

the three children crying hysterically by her bedside, trying

:07:33.:07:37.

to wake her up. We know the meaning of heartbreak.

:07:37.:07:41.

The family home was already sold and 48 year old Sally was selling

:07:41.:07:48.

other household items via the internet. We're hoping to find

:07:48.:07:52.

information from anyone who might have been in sales with the victim,

:07:52.:07:56.

that might help with information as to who has done this.

:07:56.:07:58.

During a news conference Alison said her sister had expressed

:07:58.:08:01.

concerns about her safety and was asked how the childrens' father had

:08:01.:08:10.

taken the news that she was returning to England. It was

:08:10.:08:12.

eventually consented to after some difficulties.

:08:13.:08:15.

Sally was described as an exceptional mother who lived for

:08:15.:08:18.

her children. Her twin said she would forever be half instead of

:08:18.:08:22.

whole. The family of a man who was killed

:08:22.:08:27.

by a lorry driver say a special lens could have saved his life.

:08:27.:08:29.

Michael Matthews from Burbage in Leicestershire died last year in a

:08:29.:08:34.

crash on the M1. His wife was severely injured. His family say

:08:34.:08:38.

the lorry driver couldn't see their car because of a blind spot as the

:08:38.:08:43.

HGV was left-hand drive. Michael's widow spoke to our reporter, Helen

:08:43.:08:53.
:08:53.:08:53.

Astle. We had been together since I was 18

:08:53.:09:03.

and I married when I was 19. He was just my best friend. Pat Matthews

:09:03.:09:06.

talking about her husband, Michael. Last year they were making their

:09:06.:09:10.

way home on the motorway when a left-hand drive lorry pulled into

:09:10.:09:15.

the path of their car. Michael lost his life and Pat says she has been

:09:15.:09:20.

given a life sentence for what has happened. A lorry driver, the

:09:20.:09:23.

Czechs as Backley and national spend the next six months of his

:09:24.:09:28.

life in prison after pleading guilty to causing death by driving

:09:28.:09:34.

without due care and attention. dad was sideswipe, hit on the rear

:09:34.:09:39.

bumper which spun the car around. The car spun several times and hit

:09:39.:09:44.

the Embankment and it flipped the car over and landed on the roof.

:09:44.:09:49.

The this was a left-hand drive a lorry, my steering wheel would be

:09:49.:09:53.

here and my blind-spot would be over there and that is the problem.

:09:53.:09:57.

Looking in that mirror, anyone driving along the right hands side

:09:57.:10:04.

of the lorry, cannot be seen. In 2009, 18 people were killed by

:10:04.:10:11.

foreign left hand lorries. That is one death every few weeks. The

:10:11.:10:17.

family is launching a campaign to make it legal for all left hand

:10:17.:10:21.

drive lorries to be fitted with a special lens which reduces the

:10:21.:10:25.

blind-spot. If it saved somebody else's life, then we would be very

:10:25.:10:30.

grateful. Something has got to be done. We cannot bring my father

:10:30.:10:34.

back, but what we would like to highlight is the prevention of

:10:34.:10:38.

other families having to go through what we have suffered. The family

:10:38.:10:43.

is writing to the Prime Minister to highlight their campaign. Pat is

:10:43.:10:47.

waiting for possible further surgery but says she will never

:10:47.:10:51.

recover from what has happened. More former residents of a

:10:51.:10:55.

children's home are to take legal action against two councils. 21

:10:55.:10:58.

people now claim they were victims of physical and sexual abuse by

:10:58.:11:03.

staff while they were at Beechwood Children's Home. The property on

:11:03.:11:06.

Woodborough Road in Nottingham was owned and operated by the county

:11:06.:11:09.

council up until 1998, when ownership transferred to the city

:11:09.:11:15.

council. It was closed in 2006. The Government's announced that RAF

:11:15.:11:19.

Cottesmore at Oakham is to be turned into an Army base. It was

:11:19.:11:23.

the home of the Harrier aircraft until last year. Since March it's

:11:23.:11:26.

been a satellite base to RAF Wittering near Stamford and it was

:11:26.:11:30.

due to close next year. Now the Defence Secretary says after 2015

:11:30.:11:38.

Cottesmore will house a major new army unit.

:11:38.:11:42.

Police in Derby are hoping to speak to the victim of a stabbing later.

:11:42.:11:45.

The 35 year old was attacked on Stanton Street in Normanton early

:11:45.:11:49.

on Saturday morning. Officers say it looks like he was trying to

:11:49.:11:55.

break up an argument. Police in Leicester were today

:11:55.:11:58.

targeting cyclists who ride in pedestrian areas of the city.

:11:58.:12:01.

Officers were in the New Walk area advising and encouraging cyclists

:12:01.:12:11.
:12:11.:12:12.

to use different routes, as Paul Bradshaw reports.

:12:12.:12:15.

Can I stop you a moment? There's been a ban on cycling along

:12:15.:12:21.

New Walk for many years. And today Police were enforcing the bye-law.

:12:21.:12:25.

We are trying to let people know why we're here and to think from a

:12:25.:12:28.

different perspective. To some cyclists, the restrictions seemed

:12:28.:12:36.

unfair. I understand they have to police this so people can use it as

:12:36.:12:41.

a pedestrian area but in other places they have cycle paths. But

:12:41.:12:47.

lots of people agreed something has to be done. It is long overdue.

:12:47.:12:50.

Some come down at a reasonable speed but sometimes you have to

:12:50.:12:55.

jump out of the way. Quite a few pedestrians walk a bit so you can

:12:55.:12:59.

understand where they come from. Become down here 20 miles an hour

:12:59.:13:06.

it seems and it's obvious it is will accident waiting to happen.

:13:06.:13:10.

At the end of the day the message to cyclists was clear - on your

:13:10.:13:12.

bike! They divide communities - to some

:13:12.:13:14.

beautiful, others a blot on the landscape. But one thing looks

:13:14.:13:18.

certain - there will be more wind turbines in our region in years to

:13:18.:13:21.

come. The government wants to produce 15% of UK energy from

:13:21.:13:24.

renewable methods by 2020. At the moment it says only 3% of our

:13:24.:13:30.

energy is generated this way. Well, in the first of a new series, Simon

:13:30.:13:32.

Ward was given access to Leicestershire's first commercial

:13:32.:13:42.
:13:42.:13:44.

wind farm. Harnessing the power of nature is

:13:44.:13:50.

not new, but a modern wind farm and turbine industry is in comparison

:13:50.:13:56.

to this old windmill. But opinions are divided on the issue - should

:13:56.:13:58.

refund them to benefit the environment? Or, are they a waste

:13:58.:14:02.

of money and a blot on the landscape. Their numbers are

:14:02.:14:08.

increasing across the East Midlands. This is the low spinning wind farm

:14:08.:14:12.

near Gilmorton, Ashby magnet and Donson batters. It is the first in

:14:12.:14:16.

the county and is due to be operational this summer. Graham

:14:16.:14:20.

Jordan lives about 2.5 miles away and is convinced about the benefits

:14:20.:14:25.

of the wind farm. I didn't find it difficult to become a supporter

:14:25.:14:29.

because the people against it made such strong claims that were

:14:29.:14:36.

clearly, they were myths and lies. Scientifically they are in

:14:36.:14:40.

experienced. I know the science, that is why I took exception to it.

:14:40.:14:44.

They put a poster outside my house and told me five miles from the

:14:44.:14:48.

site, the whole area would be devastated. That is a very strong

:14:48.:14:55.

term. The Blades are 125 metres high. The company behind the

:14:55.:15:00.

project claims it will provide electricity for 5,000 homes.

:15:00.:15:04.

Platforms block the view inside but this ladder reaches 80 metres up.

:15:04.:15:09.

An escape plan shows a technician could throw themselves out when an

:15:10.:15:13.

abseil type system in an emergency. Local environmentalists have been

:15:14.:15:18.

keeping an eye on the development of this Leicestershire wind farm.

:15:18.:15:22.

It is the way forward. Obviously they cost money to construct, but

:15:22.:15:27.

in contrast to conventional power stations and installations, the

:15:27.:15:32.

wind is free. It is inexhaustible, so it is an no-brainer.

:15:32.:15:37.

everyone agrees. Local opponents failed to stop planning permission

:15:37.:15:42.

being granted and they are still worried. You will read 12 things

:15:42.:15:46.

and six of them will say there won't be any problems. You read

:15:46.:15:52.

another six, No It's one not be fine it will be horrendous. Until

:15:52.:15:55.

it is operational, you are living with a constant uncertainty.

:15:55.:15:59.

Opponents say they are concerned about the health effects of noise

:15:59.:16:03.

and so called flicker, when light comes through the turbines at

:16:03.:16:09.

sunrise and sunset. We continue to campaign against them. At the

:16:09.:16:12.

moment we are carrying out a health survey within the community to find

:16:12.:16:17.

out how well the community is now and we were repeated in the year to

:16:17.:16:20.

find out the detrimental effect the turbines have had on the health of

:16:20.:16:27.

the community. In terms of bigger wind turbines, figures show there

:16:27.:16:29.

are 13 Bills and operating in the region. But the scene is changing,

:16:29.:16:35.

with 22 more large turbines given approval and many planning

:16:35.:16:39.

applications in the pipeline. With the benefit of real experience, how

:16:39.:16:45.

do people opposed to wind farms feel after some time? This is

:16:45.:16:48.

Nottinghamshire, it went into operation towards the end of last

:16:48.:16:52.

summer. This man and his wife can see it from their front garden and

:16:52.:16:59.

say the turbines can occasionally be heard at night. I believe at a

:16:59.:17:05.

125 metres from bottom to the top. I think myself overlooking the

:17:05.:17:10.

village, further back they would have been better. But this lady

:17:10.:17:16.

lives even closer to the turbines. I always think they can't build

:17:16.:17:19.

underneath it and it preserves the countryside in that respect. I

:17:19.:17:24.

cannot hear anything and the trees around me obscure a lot of them

:17:24.:17:31.

anyway, although I can see them from to spring's aspects. --

:17:31.:17:35.

different aspects. There is no perfect solution for energy at the

:17:35.:17:39.

moment. Fossil fuel have their problems at the moment and wind

:17:39.:17:44.

farms cannot give us everything. The battles will rage on but with

:17:44.:17:47.

more wing turbines being given approval they are increasing

:17:48.:17:52.

presence on our landscape. And tomorrow, we'll be talking to a

:17:52.:17:55.

company which has designed a new type of off-shore wind turbine

:17:55.:17:59.

system. It says it could double the amount of power generated by

:17:59.:18:09.
:18:09.:18:12.

existing off-shore wind farms. We have a wind of a new signing at

:18:12.:18:18.

Nottingham Forest? Frustrated Forest fans can rest a

:18:18.:18:21.

little easier this evening. The club have made their second signing

:18:21.:18:23.

of the summer. It's former Manchester United, Middlesbro, West

:18:23.:18:25.

Brom and Fulham midfielde,r Jonathan Greening. And Mark

:18:25.:18:31.

Shardlow has been to meet him. is 32 and has been a substitute in

:18:31.:18:34.

both Champions League and Europa League finals on the winner of the

:18:34.:18:40.

Championship. Jonathan Greening is a Forest player. I am happy. I'm

:18:40.:18:44.

glad it is all sorted now. It is nice it is sorted and I am here now

:18:45.:18:49.

and ready to of rock and roll. is moving from a Premier League,

:18:49.:18:55.

but once regular football and was impressed with the pitch. I have

:18:55.:18:59.

known Steve McLaren a long time he was my assistant manager at

:18:59.:19:01.

Manchester United and at Middlesbrough as my manager. When I

:19:01.:19:07.

first spoke to him, he told me his aims and wanted to get this club

:19:07.:19:14.

back into the Premier League. They have been close the last couple of

:19:14.:19:17.

seasons and hopefully they can go that step further. It is definitely

:19:17.:19:22.

the best league in the world. has played at the city Ground a

:19:22.:19:29.

number of times. I scored four goals in the 8-1 victory with

:19:29.:19:33.

Manchester United 4 star and he is hoping the look continues. He will

:19:33.:19:36.

be training with his colleagues for the first time tomorrow.

:19:36.:19:39.

Leicester City are looking for four more signings. The Championship's

:19:39.:19:42.

big spenders are currently on a two -eek European tour. Natalie Jackson

:19:42.:19:52.
:19:52.:19:52.

has caught up with them in Stockholm.

:19:53.:19:58.

We are in Sweden for Leicester City's ten-day tour. We have been

:19:58.:20:02.

behind the scenes with the team and been up close and personal with the

:20:02.:20:06.

owners and they say what goes on tour, stays on tour but we will

:20:06.:20:12.

have all of the secrets in Sweden and East Midlands today some --

:20:12.:20:15.

tomorrow. Meanwhile, Derby County are denying

:20:15.:20:17.

reports they've approached Leicester about signing their

:20:17.:20:20.

former skippe,r Matt Oakley. Derby start their more modest tour of the

:20:20.:20:23.

north west of England tomorrow. Now, the revival of Donington Park

:20:23.:20:25.

racing circuit continues with the first ever visit from the World

:20:25.:20:28.

Touring Car Championships over the weekend. It's fast and tight racing

:20:28.:20:31.

in cars that look almost like something you and I might drive.

:20:31.:20:35.

But we don't drive them the way these guys do. As I found out in

:20:35.:20:37.

some style from the Championship Leader.

:20:37.:20:41.

Rob Huff is that man. The only Brit in the Championship and the

:20:41.:20:44.

definite star of the weekend at Donington. With the World Touring

:20:44.:20:47.

Cars now a key part of the parkland circuits programme. But what's it

:20:47.:20:56.

really like to drive? Time to find out. It is a fantastic circuit. It

:20:56.:21:06.

is Grace -- great for the racing. It will be close this weekend.

:21:06.:21:11.

can see what you're thinking, not the Championship driver, but he

:21:11.:21:15.

said he needed help. I will take you round the circuit and we will

:21:15.:21:19.

get you fully kitted out. You can pretend you are a racing driver for

:21:19.:21:24.

the evening. Just been whipped around the course, I have a

:21:24.:21:30.

sneaking suspicion this might be scary.

:21:30.:21:38.

4th here late braking. We have a 1.6 turbo engine, slick tyres,

:21:38.:21:41.

massive brakes and a stiff suspension. You won't want to drive

:21:41.:21:51.

this down your local high street. Matt was some braking, goodness me!

:21:51.:22:01.

Hard on the brakes, third gear, second gear. That was all some. He

:22:01.:22:05.

is the only Brits in it, and I can see why.

:22:05.:22:08.

Amazing! As for the racing? Well, as dramatic as ever, with Rob Huff

:22:09.:22:11.

taking two second places to maintain his Championship lead. And

:22:11.:22:20.

highlighting the one bit of the experience I missed. It is a non-

:22:20.:22:24.

contact sport. We are touring car drivers and won't shy of using the

:22:25.:22:31.

bumpers. That is when it has entertaining. Yeah. Happy to stick

:22:31.:22:37.

to what I did. Whatever the consequences personally. Hat hair.

:22:37.:22:40.

In boxing, it was a brave effort, but Derby's Ovill McKenzie who we

:22:40.:22:43.

featured last week, missed out on the British and Commonwealth light

:22:43.:22:46.

heavyweight title. Mckenzie, from Derby, was beaten on points by Tony

:22:46.:22:50.

Bellew in Liverpool. In cricket, the dates have been

:22:50.:22:55.

announced for the Twenty20 quarter finals. Leicestershire will play

:22:55.:22:58.

Kent on Saturday 6th August. Whilst Notts take on Somerset the

:22:58.:23:06.

following day with an afternoon start. 1:45pm.

:23:06.:23:09.

And a quick mention of an event at Braunston Leisure Centre in

:23:09.:23:11.

Leicester tomorrow night. They've got both the England under 16

:23:11.:23:14.

basketball team in action and a special game involving the medal

:23:14.:23:19.

winners for the GB Special Olympic team. Well worth your support.

:23:19.:23:22.

It's the usual question they ask when they're about to wrap your

:23:22.:23:25.

fish and chips: "do you want salt and vinegar on that"? Well a

:23:25.:23:28.

Leicester chip shop owner believes he's come up with a way of adding

:23:28.:23:31.

vinegar without making your dinner soggy. Our condiments correspondent

:23:31.:23:35.

Angelina Socci's been finding out more.

:23:36.:23:39.

We all know what's it like, you buy your fish and chips, you get them

:23:39.:23:43.

home and all the vinegar has soaked through to the paper. Well fear not

:23:43.:23:47.

because this shop believes it's found a solution. Lefteris

:23:47.:23:50.

Eleftheriou has been running his fish and chip shop on Welford Road

:23:50.:23:54.

for the past 30 years. But recently decided to come up with a dry

:23:54.:24:04.

alternative to vinegar. I have a friends who works in ingredients

:24:04.:24:09.

and flavourings. I asked him about three years ago if it was possible

:24:09.:24:13.

to do salt that tastes like Vennegoor. It took him three years

:24:13.:24:18.

and we have had some samples. Eventually about a week ago he came

:24:18.:24:22.

with a sample that tastes nice. This is the ingredient and here's

:24:22.:24:25.

the science. It includes salt, sugar and dextrose and when

:24:25.:24:34.

combined is supposed to taste like salt and vinegar. I think this is

:24:34.:24:39.

the right combinations. The flavour is nice and you can taste the

:24:39.:24:42.

vinegar. The salt and vinegar is the right combination. The dry

:24:42.:24:45.

sprinkle contains one third less sodium than normal salt. But do

:24:45.:24:51.

customers approve? It is quite nice All Star had to me it tastes lovely.

:24:51.:24:56.

Better than soggy chips. You can taste the Vennegoor. Deathly taste

:24:57.:25:03.

the salt, but it is not soft. don't like a lot of vinegar.

:25:03.:25:05.

his customers seem happy, Lefteris is hoping that other places will

:25:06.:25:09.

pick up on the idea. The shop is now busy developing the packaging

:25:09.:25:12.

for the product and looking at ways to market it. Only then will they

:25:12.:25:22.
:25:22.:25:24.

know if it's really worth its salt And vinegar!

:25:24.:25:29.

There was me thinking the height of sophistication was spray on vinegar.

:25:29.:25:37.

Makes me want some fish and chips for my tea.

:25:37.:25:44.

We thought we wouldn't see many showers in Nottingham but it has

:25:44.:25:49.

rained very heavily within the last hour. One new arrival was captured

:25:49.:25:58.

the of the day at the marina. We have a few showers with us at the

:25:58.:26:01.

moment and as you might get more prolonged period of rain during the

:26:01.:26:06.

early part of this evening. Gradually we will see the showers

:26:06.:26:10.

diminishing. There won't go away totally overnight. If you will come

:26:10.:26:15.

back in in the early hours of the morning. It has been a blustery day

:26:15.:26:20.

and the wind will ease off overnight. Minimum temperatures

:26:20.:26:25.

around 11 Celsius. Tomorrow morning, starting with a lot of cloud,

:26:25.:26:30.

brightness at times but the showers developing. The wind will be much

:26:30.:26:34.

lighter, so the showers, as they become heavier into the afternoon

:26:34.:26:38.

and if you find yourself into the afternoon, it will be there for

:26:38.:26:43.

quite a bit of time and some thunder also possible. Temperatures

:26:43.:26:50.

will be warmer. Highs tomorrow of 20 Celsius, so improving slowly.

:26:50.:26:54.

The wind direction much changed again coming from the north by the

:26:54.:26:58.

middle part of the week and then a north-easterly. We still have

:26:58.:27:02.

showers by the time we get to Wednesday. We will get to see a

:27:02.:27:07.

small amount of sunshine in between those showers. On Thursday there is

:27:07.:27:12.

a weather front, so it will be quite a showery day. The wind

:27:12.:27:16.

continues to come from the North East. It will have an impact on the

:27:16.:27:21.

temperatures. We will see them in the region of around 16 or 17

:27:21.:27:24.

Celsius through the middle part of the week. Night-time temperatures

:27:24.:27:29.

not doing too badly. The wind will also ease down a bit. Towards the

:27:29.:27:33.

weekend, although high pressure is not building in, it should ease off

:27:33.:27:35.
