built here. In the sport at Trent Bridge it was

:00:54.:00:57.

India against England, but this belonged to these men.

:00:58.:01:03.

Welcome to the programme. He has been critically injured in a

:01:03.:01:08.

motorbike accident in Bali. He is in intensive care, but the hospital

:01:08.:01:13.

bills are piling up. A former lecturer Matthew Taylor has no

:01:13.:01:17.

medical insurance, it has added to be raggedy experienced by his

:01:17.:01:23.

family. They fear if they money runs out if he could die.

:01:23.:01:30.

It was his dream a job, teaching English to students in Bali. He was

:01:30.:01:34.

involved in a motorbike crash on his way home, he is now critically

:01:34.:01:41.

ill in intensive care. Matthew needs Advanced I see you treatment.

:01:41.:01:44.

Back home in Leicestershire his family had been trying to keep up-

:01:44.:01:49.

to-date with his consider -- with his condition. They need to raise

:01:49.:01:52.

thousands of pounds for his condition. He was not insured

:01:52.:02:02.
:02:02.:02:03.

medically, if they are struggling to find the money. We may need a

:02:03.:02:08.

�100,000 of life savings, that will run out. It is content -- if this

:02:08.:02:12.

condition continues to stay the same, we will have no money in two

:02:12.:02:18.

weeks' time. Doctors say he is in a deep coma and may not recover. His

:02:18.:02:23.

medical bills amounting to �11,000 a week, the family are trying to

:02:23.:02:28.

raise money. They are urging other people to take out medical

:02:28.:02:35.

insurance. Any student or teenager going abroad, please take out

:02:35.:02:39.

medical insurance. Even if your family buyers for you as a

:02:39.:02:46.

Christmas present, you do not understand the stress and strain,

:02:46.:02:51.

and frustration that you have to go for -- go through. The family would

:02:51.:02:56.

like to bring him back home, but that would cost thousands of pounds.

:02:56.:03:01.

They are hoping his condition will improve.

:03:01.:03:04.

Our correspondent has joined us. What is the latest on his

:03:04.:03:11.

condition? He was flown at to Bali to a hospital -- he was flown from

:03:11.:03:15.

Bali to a hospital in Singapore. He it is feared that his condition is

:03:15.:03:21.

deteriorating. As it stands there is nothing that doctors can do. The

:03:21.:03:24.

family are incredibly distressed. They are trying to decide what to

:03:24.:03:31.

do next. Thank you very much. Next tonight, Europe can do it, why

:03:31.:03:35.

can't we? And East Midlands MP says we have a lot to learn from

:03:35.:03:43.

Brussels when it comes to safeguarding jobs at home. He says

:03:43.:03:47.

that the decision to award a huge contract to a German firm, not

:03:47.:03:54.

Bombardier should be challenged. It is now six weeks since

:03:54.:04:02.

Bombardier lost the contract to the German firm Siemens, a �1.4 billion

:04:02.:04:07.

contract to build trains for the Thameslink route across London.

:04:07.:04:13.

Still the outdraw refuses to die down. Siemens were found guilty of

:04:13.:04:17.

corruption charges on other contract. They say that has been

:04:17.:04:22.

addressed. At his Leicestershire home this MP told me it is an issue

:04:22.:04:26.

that this government, and the previous government, they should

:04:26.:04:30.

have addressed it. It appears to me there are very good grounds to

:04:30.:04:34.

question of whether Stevens are appropriate company to handle this

:04:34.:04:38.

contract. I think the government should have taken that into account.

:04:38.:04:44.

It seems to me that there is a case for the government looking again,

:04:44.:04:54.
:04:54.:04:55.

taking legal advice and seeing what the position is. Liberal-Democrat

:04:55.:05:02.

MEP, Bill told me they should look at the position again if they

:05:02.:05:12.

brokered European are rules. The MPs felt that European governments

:05:12.:05:16.

look after their own workers. you put their project out to tender,

:05:17.:05:23.

you keep in mind of two things. The rules as they stand, but also at

:05:24.:05:28.

looking at ways that we can ensure that we did the best deal to the

:05:28.:05:35.

British tax payer, and British Industry. He says that the

:05:35.:05:38.

government should not be afraid at looking again at the awarding of

:05:38.:05:46.

the Thameslink contract. You are watching East MidlandsToday,

:05:46.:05:50.

if you are thinking of heading to the beach, look no further than

:05:50.:05:58.

Nottingham. The Riviera is in the market square. We have been the

:05:58.:06:04.

all-day. Some have hundreds upon hundreds of people, and I tell you

:06:04.:06:08.

you can see that they are all still here. They are having a brilliant

:06:08.:06:13.

time. We will have all the highlights later on. We will tell

:06:13.:06:23.
:06:23.:06:25.

you what the weekend that there will be doing. Join me later on.

:06:25.:06:29.

Detectives investigating the murder of a mother in Nottingham have

:06:29.:06:35.

released on bail or a 26-year-old man who was arrested with

:06:35.:06:38.

connections to the killing. Caroline Coyne's body was found two

:06:38.:06:45.

months ago -- two weeks ago. The police and believe a missing

:06:45.:06:50.

trainer could lead to finding her killer.

:06:50.:06:53.

Almost one we can't flowers mark the spot where Caroline Coyne was

:06:53.:07:01.

found. It was a pathway between two houses. The 28-year-old had two

:07:01.:07:07.

sons, she died of head injuries. These are CCTV images showed her

:07:07.:07:11.

trying to flag down a passing traffic. She tried to do this

:07:11.:07:15.

several times after leaving a family party. She was wearing this

:07:15.:07:21.

pink T-shirts. Hirsute, How right hand trainer is still missing. It

:07:21.:07:26.

is identical to the one I am holding. He is a size 3. It is how

:07:26.:07:31.

right trainer. It is vital we find that. The police are stepping up

:07:31.:07:38.

their inquiries. There is one key question that remains unanswered,

:07:38.:07:45.

why was she so far away from home, so late at night? The other thing

:07:45.:07:50.

that is important is trying to find out what was going through her mind

:07:50.:07:57.

that tonight. I believe she has walked all the way, why was she

:07:57.:08:00.

doing that? She engaged with members of the public, they spoke

:08:00.:08:07.

to her, what was she saying? It is vital that we know what she was

:08:07.:08:13.

trying to do. The police insist that the release on bail of a man

:08:13.:08:18.

and they were questioning is not a setback. The cards tell us that she

:08:18.:08:21.

will be truly mess, and not forgotten.

:08:21.:08:23.

Student nurses working at the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston have

:08:23.:08:27.

been removed because of serious concerns about the hospital. It's

:08:30.:08:32.

school at the Pilgrim, told students the decision was taken at

:08:32.:08:36.

the request of the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Earlier this

:08:36.:08:39.

year the Care Quality Commission threatened to close some services

:08:39.:08:41.

at the hospital after publishing a highly critical

Christmas. A final decision on the future of the New Walk building

someone, and caused those injuries, that is very serious. We are

determined to catch these people. The BKA did they use, a black Audi

:10:46.:10:50.

that the report will lead officers to those responsible. Tesco and

:10:50.:10:57.

have offered a reward, we want to appeal to people who know these

:10:57.:11:02.

offenders, tell us what is -- what was planned, and what took place.

Leicestershire council is to spend �5 million on road repairs. Many

:11:50.:11:56.

roads have developed pot holes in the big freeze last winter. It is

:11:56.:12:01.

part of the County Council a's programme to improve transport.

Plans to reconstruct the Derby's canals have received backing.

supermarkets in our towns and cities. Planning permission has

:12:24.:12:28.

just been granted for a major new store, right next to a busy street

:12:28.:12:33.

full of shops. Many of the traders fear it could put them out of

:12:33.:12:36.

business. But officials say it may actually help to bring more

:12:36.:12:46.
:12:46.:12:48.

customers to the whole area. From Than there is already a market but

:12:48.:12:53.

it is about to make a way for a supermarket. Tesco was last night

:12:53.:12:57.

given permission to build a major new store. In turn, the market will

:12:57.:13:03.

be rebuilt next door where a pub currently stands. Traders are

:13:03.:13:07.

surprisingly upbeat about competing with Tesco. We will compete with

:13:07.:13:14.

prices. They will have lost leaders. We will do our best. Bring it on

:13:14.:13:20.

for me. If 100,000 people visit Tesco, it is up to us to get them

:13:20.:13:23.

interested in our market. across the road there is a district

:13:23.:13:28.

centre with a lot of shops which will be impacted. Tesco will sell

bring you in pot -- input. We certainly need jobs and the sort of

:13:41.:13:47.

jobs Tesco can provide other sort of jobs people are looking for.

:13:47.:13:51.

jobs will be created by the store. Tesco says it wants to be a good

:13:51.:13:55.

neighbour. But many of the small independent traders in the area do

:13:55.:14:02.

not share the optimism of others. It will certainly bring people but

:14:02.:14:09.

not sue these shops. There is a car park over there now. People don't

:14:09.:14:14.

walk over now. Why will they do it then? This store has been here

:14:38.:14:41.

there too. I was there this morning with Sarah Teale, who's still there

:14:41.:14:48.

now. How's it gone this afternoon? It's been brilliant. Earlier today,

:14:48.:14:54.

this beach was heaving! Tonight, the sandcastles have been cleared

:14:54.:15:00.

away, and volleyball has begun. Hundreds of people also came to

:15:00.:15:03.

visit the East Midlands Today Road Show, having a go at doing our jobs.

:15:04.:15:13.
:15:14.:15:32.

It's been such a lot of fun. Here's It is no small job bringing the

of a cricket match going on, I believe?

A packed house at Trent Bridge, the two best Test nations playing. They

:18:08.:18:15.

came to see the likes of Dravid, Dhoni, and Tendulkar. In the end it

:18:25.:18:26.

was Swann and Broad who stopped the I think we can produce the goods

today. 2-0. Top of the world. Thank you very much. They have to remain

:18:47.:18:47.

number one. I would like to see Tendulkar it out, first of all.

:18:47.:18:57.
:18:57.:18:58.

England winning is a dream, India winning his absolute ecstasy.

:18:58.:19:05.

easy win, to be honest. More on Broad in a moment. If you couldn't

:19:05.:19:11.

get a ticket, one option is coming here with a pint. There's no

being made to the new look Stadium, ready for the arrival of football

:19:40.:19:50.
:19:50.:19:58.

So, it is the special one versus the Swedish one, are you excited?

:19:58.:20:05.

Yes, of course, Real Madrid coming here, to our home, fantastic. When

:20:05.:20:11.

you talk about Real Madrid, it is probably one of the best clubs ever

:20:11.:20:16.

faster up to secure the showpiece friendly with the Spanish giants,

:20:16.:20:21.

Leicester have reportedly paid �1 million. What a game to make your

debut end. It is going to be great, this place looks really special.

:20:28.:20:36.

When it is full. It will be even better. Yesterday, as new signings

were introduced, the club was a hive of activity all around. All

these seats in the dug out of our brand new. John pant sill is a new

:20:46.:20:52.

signing. Do you sense this is something new and exciting? I am

:20:52.:20:59.

very happy. Looking at the stadium, it is amazing. No regrets about

:20:59.:21:04.

leaving the Premier League? Not at all. I am so happy to be part of

:21:04.:21:10.

this. And, for this Real Madrid fixture, from 1pm, there will be a

:21:10.:21:16.

huge village for fans on the car park. In your 40 years, have you

:21:16.:21:21.

ever known a time like this? Signings. It is crazy. The training

:21:22.:21:30.

ground. People that are around. The ticket office. The new seating.

:21:30.:21:38.

Everything is incredible. More news from Leicester City, we

:21:38.:21:44.

understand there are on the verge of signing Fernandez. Their 10th

Rebecca Adlington qualified fastest from her heat in the 800 metres

freestyle in a Shanghai. But it has been all about Trent

:21:59.:22:03.

Bridge. And Stuart Broad. When Broad and Swann came together,

:22:03.:22:07.

England were in a world of trouble. Wickets tumbling all around, and

:22:07.:22:10.

only 124 runs on the board. The Nottinghamshire pair promptly set

:22:10.:22:14.

about India with a quickfire boundary feast. Swann didn't fare

:22:14.:22:18.

quite as well as Broad. This ball ended up sending him to hospital.

:22:18.:22:21.

But his resurgent county team mate ending up scoring more than twice

:22:21.:22:25.

as much as any other England player today. A brilliant innings from

:22:25.:22:35.
:22:35.:22:38.

Stuart. 64. England 221 all out. Three great stuff. And then as well

:22:38.:22:41.

a first-ball wicket for England to take at the end of the day. In the

:22:41.:22:46.

end, it was a Nottinghamshire's day. Which is why we have the chief

:22:46.:22:51.

executive with us. It has been a terrific day. Some fantastic

:22:51.:22:56.

cricket which has had the crowd on the edge of their seats. A great

:22:56.:23:02.

start for England. In front of a capacity crowd. Great to have these

:23:02.:23:06.

local heroes performing at this level. Stuart Broad is terrific

:23:06.:23:11.

when he plays for Nottinghamshire. Great to see him on his home ground.

:23:11.:23:17.

And batting so well. It is not just him in the Nottinghamshire team?

:23:17.:23:22.

have seven players representing England over the next week. Graeme

:23:22.:23:32.
:23:32.:23:39.

Swann. Hales and Patel. Hutton and Kelsall. Do you want to take a bet

:23:39.:23:45.

on how this will go? What I can say is we have four houses tomorrow and

:23:45.:23:52.

Sunday. 300 tickets only left on Monday.

:23:52.:23:56.

This is Trent Bridge, a cracking day's cricket. Really well set up

:23:57.:24:06.

for the rest of the game. Hugely busy around Trent Bridge as

:24:06.:24:16.
:24:16.:24:22.

Now it's time for the weather. It is going to warm up nicely over the

:24:22.:24:27.

weekend. We have a lot of cloud around. But it has been lovely and

:24:27.:24:34.

colourful today. Earlier, we saw children and sand castles. Now they

:24:34.:24:41.

have got it ready for a game of volleyball. We have a life DJ. Lots

:24:41.:24:48.

of things to eat. And, fairground rides. It is a party atmosphere.

:24:48.:24:53.
