Good evening. The top story. A senior police officer has been

:01:06.:01:10.

remanded into custody after being charged with sexual offences

:01:10.:01:14.

against a charge. Inspector Russell Dew had been suspended from

:01:14.:01:20.

Nottinghamshire Police while investigations were carried out.

:01:20.:01:25.

This is Inspector Russell Dew, aged 44, and an inspector based at

:01:25.:01:29.

Mansfield police station. He was arrested by officers from his own

:01:29.:01:35.

force. He is accused of having sex with a child under 16. He is also

:01:35.:01:41.

accused of a less serious sexual offence against the same child. The

:01:41.:01:45.

girl was 13 years old at the time of the alleged offences, which are

:01:45.:01:51.

said to have happened last year when he was off duty. Today, during

:01:51.:01:58.

a 45 minute hearing at Sheffield magistrates', Inspector Russell Dew

:01:58.:02:03.

spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth. For much of the

:02:03.:02:08.

hearing he sat with his head bowed, looking at the floor. He was

:02:08.:02:18.
:02:18.:02:24.

refused bail. He will appear in court or in a week.

:02:24.:02:29.

Next, the business secretary Vince Cable was in the region to talk to

:02:29.:02:35.

the Derby train make a bomb RDA. It faces the loss of 1400 jobs. The

:02:35.:02:38.

pace again after the company last the Thames like contractors Siemens.

:02:38.:02:42.

The government refused to consider -- consider reopening the bidding

:02:42.:02:50.

process, despite pressure. I have spoken to the civic leaders and

:02:50.:02:55.

management. Private conversations, but they commuter -- communicated

:02:55.:02:59.

their concerns. I tried to stress the importance of keeping

:02:59.:03:09.

bombarding a year. Vince Cable would not be drawn into any

:03:09.:03:12.

commitment to bombarding a today. We are dealing with the decision

:03:12.:03:17.

that has been made on a legal process. There are legal

:03:17.:03:22.

complexities if it were reopened. I will certainly report back to my

:03:22.:03:27.

colleagues everything I have heard and I have not -- heard a lot of

:03:27.:03:33.

new points. This has become a lightning rod for worries about

:03:33.:03:37.

British work migrating abroad. The government is keen to show it is

:03:37.:03:43.

supporting British workers. Norton motorcycles at Castle Donington

:03:43.:03:46.

became a beneficiary of a loan scheme to boost British exports

:03:46.:03:52.

today. We have managed to get funding to put more money into the

:03:52.:03:58.

supply chain, which will give us the volume to exporting to Europe.

:03:58.:04:04.

To get valuable export sales to help us grow. This scheme is likely

:04:04.:04:13.

to feel long-term for bombarding a workers. -- bombarded a.

:04:13.:04:17.

Nottinghamshire County Council is looking at cutting funding it gives

:04:17.:04:22.

to organisations caring for victims of domestic violence. They want to

:04:22.:04:28.

save 18% of the budget by reducing duplication of the work done by a

:04:28.:04:34.

number of women's shelters. Around 13,000 calls are answered here each

:04:34.:04:39.

year. They are from women and children who have experienced

:04:39.:04:46.

domestic abuse. Many need a refuge. Nottinghamshire County Council is

:04:46.:04:52.

starting a consultation to cut funding to over �912,000. They say

:04:52.:05:00.

it will reduce confusion and maximise potential for income.

:05:00.:05:04.

have minimised the cuts where we can. We are working together. Part

:05:04.:05:09.

of the consultation is the police, probation and health, so that we

:05:09.:05:16.

get the best services for victims. We want to give reassurance she and

:05:16.:05:23.

put the victim in the middle of this. This is two months of

:05:23.:05:31.

consultation. We are joined by the executive director of Women Aid

:05:31.:05:41.
:05:41.:05:42.

Integrated Services. Does the council and a point?

:05:42.:05:46.

We understand why they are trying to streamline. There is a

:05:47.:05:52.

significant cut in there. They gave 1.3 million towards various

:05:52.:05:55.

organisations in the can see working with domestic abuse and

:05:55.:06:02.

they want to cut that to 900,000. That is more than bureaucracy. We

:06:02.:06:09.

are concerned. Your organisation act as a referral system. How might

:06:09.:06:17.

you be affected? We run a 24-hour helpline for women and children. At

:06:17.:06:25.

the moment, we receive 13,000 calls each year. We are worried that we

:06:25.:06:31.

will get women who cannot get into a refuge for get other help because

:06:31.:06:40.

the amount of help will be reduced -- or get. With women and children

:06:40.:06:47.

suffer because of these cuts? believe so.

:06:47.:06:57.
:06:57.:06:59.

There is a consultation period. We have the sport later and Mark is

:06:59.:07:03.

at Trent Bridge. This ground has seen sensational

:07:03.:07:08.

cricket over the past few days. And history has been made by the

:07:08.:07:18.
:07:18.:07:18.

hometown hero and man-of-the-match Stuart Broad.

:07:19.:07:23.

The RSPCA believes that dog breeders could be behind a rise in

:07:23.:07:27.

dumped pedigree dogs. They suspect the animals are abandoned when they

:07:27.:07:33.

can no longer produce puppies. Officers in Derby say finding homes

:07:33.:07:41.

for them is a struggle. This has been this animal's home

:07:41.:07:46.

for five months. Workers at the centre in Derby believe this animal

:07:46.:07:51.

was abandoned because she was no longer able to breed. They reach

:07:51.:07:56.

the end of their breeding cycle. What happens then? Who will take

:07:56.:08:04.

them on and look after them? We need her to have a nice home for

:08:04.:08:08.

the rest of her life. Staff say there is an increase in similar

:08:08.:08:14.

cases. They recognise most breeders are responsible. There is an

:08:14.:08:19.

element where they are looking to make quick money. I do not say it

:08:19.:08:24.

is in this case. But some people I used in the animals to make money

:08:24.:08:27.

and at the end of their lifetime when they are not making money,

:08:27.:08:31.

what happens to them? There has been plenty of interest in other

:08:31.:08:36.

animals at the shelter, but five months on, and this one is still

:08:36.:08:44.

waiting for a family. Police hunting the killer of a

:08:44.:08:48.

young mother are following up information gathered at the weekend.

:08:48.:08:55.

Officers spoke to 200 people in cars and buses in the St Ann's area

:08:55.:09:00.

in the early hours of Saturday near to where Caroline Coyne's body was

:09:00.:09:06.

found. Police have arrested three people

:09:06.:09:10.

in connection with an armed robbery at Frankie and Benny's at Giltbrook

:09:10.:09:16.

Retail Park. The two men aged 25 and a woman are being questioned

:09:16.:09:26.
:09:26.:09:27.

about the raid. They took cash before leaving in a stolen Mercedes.

:09:27.:09:31.

How often have you watched the Antiques Roadshow and wondered if

:09:31.:09:37.

you had something valuable in the attic? That is what happened to

:09:37.:09:44.

Gill Cousins. She was watching the show when an expert described a

:09:44.:09:51.

broached by a Victorian designer as his most wanted item. -- a brooch.

:09:51.:09:59.

She realised she had the very peace of jury in her home. She was going

:09:59.:10:05.

to sell it for �10 at a local sale. But she did take it to the Antiques

:10:05.:10:10.

Roadshow. This is a valuable object. Somebody

:10:10.:10:14.

lucky enough to buy back from you would have walked away with

:10:14.:10:23.

something close to �10,000. I was within two days of selling it. I

:10:23.:10:30.

forgot to take it to the market. Tomorrow, it goes up for auction in

:10:30.:10:40.
:10:40.:10:42.

Market Harborough. I spoke to the auctioneer. Can I ask you to

:10:42.:10:48.

explain why it is so special? incredibly special. It was designed

:10:48.:10:54.

by William Burgess, a Goliath of Victorian design. It was probably

:10:54.:11:00.

made for somebody who was part of the Pre-Raphaelite group. It was on

:11:00.:11:04.

its way to a local antiques market. We should be grateful it did not

:11:04.:11:10.

make it. Absolutely. It was fortunate my client did not sell it

:11:10.:11:15.

there and brought it in for me to advise her on its potential.

:11:15.:11:19.

got this wonderful clue from watching the Antiques Roadshow. It

:11:19.:11:25.

is everybody's dream to find a piece like this. We all seem to

:11:25.:11:31.

know more about antiques now because of programmes like the

:11:31.:11:36.

Antiques Roadshow. How where is this? It is very rare for something

:11:36.:11:41.

of this importance to arise. It is probably eight years before the

:11:41.:11:45.

last piece we walked through the door here. I feel proud to be able

:11:45.:11:51.

to offer it for sale. There is a guide price of �10,000. Will it

:11:51.:11:56.

make that? We are looking to get as close as we can. With the emotion

:11:56.:12:06.
:12:06.:12:07.

thrown into the auction, maybe more. A Nottinghamshire teacher who

:12:07.:12:11.

allowed a sixth-former to stay overnight at his home has been

:12:11.:12:17.

suspended for six months. Richard Pratt was a trainee at the Minster

:12:17.:12:21.

School it when it happened in 2009. The General teaching Council said

:12:21.:12:25.

that he even though he was an experienced teacher, he did not

:12:25.:12:28.

maintain professional boundaries and failed in his duty of care by

:12:28.:12:34.

not letting the pupils' parents know where she was. A lamp left

:12:34.:12:38.

switched on by a family was responsible for damaging four

:12:38.:12:44.

houses in Newark. Nobody was hurt and the Fire Service believes that

:12:44.:12:52.

was because the family had a smoke alarm. An exhibition by Royal Crown

:12:52.:12:56.

Derby to commemorate the launch of the Titanic has returned to Derby.

:12:56.:13:02.

It boasts more than 100 new exhibits, including clothing warned

:13:02.:13:08.

by the actors in the famous film. Last night, the series that sends

:13:08.:13:13.

shivers down the spines of entrepreneurs was back on the BBC.

:13:13.:13:19.

Sitting in one of the chairs was a new dragon. Hilary Devey is based

:13:19.:13:22.

in Leicestershire and runs a distribution firm. As well as being

:13:22.:13:27.

the new star of the show, she is also lashing the government

:13:27.:13:36.

transport policy. Hilary Devey is having to get used

:13:36.:13:41.

to being a well-known face and the media attention it brings. I will

:13:41.:13:49.

give you 120,000. A new dragon has entered the Den. She has gained a

:13:49.:13:53.

fortune in excess of �100 million in haulage after having a good idea

:13:54.:13:57.

to set up a freight distribution business in the heart of the

:13:57.:14:03.

country. Companies bring goods every day it to a harbour in

:14:03.:14:07.

Leicestershire and her company makes short when the lorries leave

:14:07.:14:12.

they are as full as possible. It keeps empty lorries off the roads

:14:12.:14:18.

and saves fuel costs. Most of the trailers are almost five metres.

:14:18.:14:22.

They carry more goods and that reduces pollution and lorry numbers.

:14:23.:14:26.

But the European Commission wants to standardise trailers at four

:14:26.:14:30.

metres because bridges in the rest of Europe are not as high as in the

:14:30.:14:38.

UK. Hilary Devey is furious. There are 10,666 hauliers in this country.

:14:38.:14:46.

By introducing this, I would say 75% would be put out of business,

:14:46.:14:51.

creating more unemployment. For what reason? We have a motorway

:14:51.:14:57.

network adequately equipped to carry double decked trailers.

:14:57.:15:00.

industry has support from the Federation of Small Businesses,

:15:00.:15:06.

which plans a lobby of the European Parliament. East Midlands MEPs back

:15:06.:15:08.

them and the Department of Transport will oppose the plans. It

:15:08.:15:14.

does not mean it will not go through. Why do we have to emulate

:15:14.:15:22.

what every other country is doing? I disagree. Vehemently. Meanwhile,

:15:22.:15:27.

Hilary Devey is concentrating on expanding into Europe. She will be

:15:27.:15:32.

filming with the Dragon's den and the inside out programme in the

:15:32.:15:40.

East Midlands which has followed her fortunes throughout 2011.

:15:40.:15:49.

She was very good last night. The Leicestershire landscape that has

:15:49.:15:56.

found a new home in the capital in a prestigious art competition. And

:15:56.:16:01.

the weather will paid its own picture with orange on the weather

:16:01.:16:11.
:16:11.:16:13.

chart as temperatures reach up to 26 degrees.

:16:13.:16:23.

And now the sport. Coming up, Jose Mourinho, Kaka and

:16:23.:16:28.

the stars of Real Madrid, but first, remarkable days for Stuart Broad.

:16:28.:16:32.

Two weeks ago he was in danger of being dropped it from England. Now

:16:32.:16:38.

he is the golden boy after a sensational and historic few days.

:16:38.:16:44.

Tonight, our reporter is live at Trent Bridge.

:16:44.:16:50.

England beat India by 319 runs. You can see the last of the spectators

:16:50.:16:58.

are leaving. That is pretty much the England team coach with Stuart

:16:58.:17:04.

Broad on board behind me. Saturday, we can look at that because it was

:17:04.:17:09.

absolutely special. Stuart Broad taking the first hat-trick against

:17:09.:17:13.

India and the first Test match hat- trick at Trent Bridge. When the

:17:13.:17:17.

third wicket went down, the scenes were incredible. Stuart Broad has

:17:17.:17:22.

often been compared to Ian Botham, who was watching, and this sort of

:17:22.:17:27.

performance with five wickets for zero runs turned the game and will

:17:27.:17:32.

continue to have him talked about in those terms. He is the golden

:17:32.:17:37.

boy of English cricket. It was not just about Saturday for him. On

:17:37.:17:45.

Friday, he rescued England went he scored 66 runs. He scored 44 today

:17:45.:17:50.

and took a vital wicket that sent England on their way to this

:17:50.:17:54.

astonishing victory. 319 runs against the best team in the wild

:17:55.:17:59.

and Stuart Broad collected the man- of-the-match performance. He was

:17:59.:18:05.

not the only local boy who was a hero today. Out in the field was a

:18:05.:18:12.

Scot Elston, the fielding substitute. He was on the field

:18:12.:18:19.

even though he had not played a first-class match before. He is a

:18:19.:18:25.

much in demand to talk about his story. He was burnt -- born in

:18:25.:18:33.

Burton-on-Trent. His image is plastered across the broad more

:18:33.:18:38.

Centre in Nottingham, a bridge onto which the Indian team passed on

:18:38.:18:41.

their way to Trent Bridge. Little did they know he would be one of

:18:41.:18:47.

the men to defeat them at Trent Bridge. This is an historic victory.

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

A sensational performance by Stuart Broad and England winning.

:18:58.:19:02.

Leicestershire and England wicketkeeper Paul Nixon is to

:19:02.:19:10.

retire at the end of the week. Tier East Midlands world champions,

:19:10.:19:13.

Mansfield's Becky Adlington won her first world title with a nail-

:19:13.:19:18.

biting swim in Shanghai, while Liam Tancock joins her by collecting

:19:18.:19:24.

gold in the 50 metres backstroke. Rebecca Abington won a thrilling

:19:24.:19:31.

race, coming from behind on the final length. She and her coach

:19:31.:19:35.

have won dulled at national, European and Olympic and world

:19:35.:19:43.

level. I cannot believe it. It was all my coach kept saying. You have

:19:43.:19:49.

the set. Nobody can take that away from year. I am so happy. It is

:19:49.:19:53.

something I can look back on. It will be amazing to hopefully tell

:19:53.:20:01.

my children one day. Tonight the national press are speculating

:20:01.:20:05.

David Beckham is coming to Leicester. Away from that, we

:20:05.:20:11.

understand that Robbie Keane and a shame longer our targets. And this

:20:11.:20:20.

is -- Shane longed. And this is after they came to Leicester. It

:20:20.:20:26.

felt like a Hollywood premiere. Thousands were there to see Real

:20:26.:20:32.

Madrid arrive. It is mind-blowing. Amazing. An incredible achievement

:20:32.:20:39.

for them to get Real Madrid to Leicester. Jose Mourinho will know

:20:39.:20:45.

he has been to Leicester tonight. Part of the world domination plan,

:20:45.:20:55.
:20:55.:20:57.

I believe! This was the moment the fans were waiting for. The famous

:20:57.:21:02.

players in the white shirts of Real Madrid at their club. There was a

:21:02.:21:09.

record crowd in the stadium to see the Spanish champions. But, the new

:21:10.:21:14.

stars from Leicester did not disappoint. The biggest cheer of

:21:14.:21:19.

the first half came when substitute Ronaldo started warming up. Before

:21:19.:21:27.

half-time, they took the lead. As it was only a friendly, at the

:21:27.:21:32.

interval there was a change of kit and after a defensive mix-up,

:21:32.:21:39.

another goal for Real Madrid. But, in the sweltering heat, Leicester

:21:39.:21:48.

City were resilient. Finally, they got their reward.

:21:48.:21:53.

It finished 2-1. What a way for Leicester to start their new season

:21:53.:21:59.

in the championship. It is good for everybody, the club and the players,

:21:59.:22:06.

everyone in the club. A great day of football. I believe this team

:22:06.:22:12.

with this manager, I believe, very soon, they will be in the

:22:12.:22:18.

Premiership. So Ronaldo and Real Madrid say goodbye to Leicester

:22:18.:22:22.

City and the special one says the Swedish one will have Leicester in

:22:22.:22:28.

the Premier League soon. And the Swedish one is on BBC Radio

:22:28.:22:33.

Leicester's phone-in as we speak. You can listen again on the eye

:22:33.:22:39.

player. Finally, we must mention Alfreton Town Football Club as they

:22:39.:22:43.

compete in the Conference for the first time. They warmed up with a

:22:43.:22:49.

game against Sheffield Wednesday and they won 14-0. Brilliant. That

:22:49.:22:54.

is it from the on a day that England won the Test match at Trent

:22:54.:23:01.

Bridge. Ever since 1789, the Royal Academy

:23:01.:23:06.

of Arts has hosted the annual Summer Exhibition. It is the

:23:06.:23:10.

largest contemporary show in the wild. Artists are desperate to take

:23:10.:23:16.

part. This year, two students from Loughborough has their work

:23:16.:23:21.

selected from thousands of entries. Every year the Royal Academy of

:23:21.:23:27.

Arts has around 12,000 entries from artists hoping to be part of the

:23:27.:23:30.

Summer Exhibition. It is the largest contemporary art exhibition

:23:30.:23:36.

in the wild. For the first time, two laugh but students have been

:23:36.:23:43.

picked -- in the world. -- to Loughborough students. It has been

:23:43.:23:48.

a whirlwind few months for the students at Loughborough University.

:23:48.:23:53.

Neither imagined they would have the chance of being picked. Jane

:23:53.:23:58.

returned to study fine art after raising a family. Her painting

:23:58.:24:03.

almost did not make it in. We had trouble leaving Loughborough. We

:24:03.:24:06.

are battling against rush-hour traffic to get through London for

:24:06.:24:11.

the 6pm deadline. We got to the back of the academy and had ten

:24:11.:24:16.

minutes to get the working in! works are entered anonymously so

:24:16.:24:21.

that judges do not know who the artist is. Emma's painting was

:24:21.:24:25.

inspired by the Leicestershire landscape. It was a big moment to

:24:26.:24:31.

see her work in the gallery. I felt proud and excited to be around such

:24:31.:24:38.

fantastic work. Some of my heroes. While it is a great honour to be

:24:38.:24:43.

picked, for new artists it is also a chance to have their work cells.

:24:43.:24:47.

In both their cases they have had buyers who have loved their

:24:47.:24:52.

paintings -- work sold. For Jane, it is personal, because her work

:24:52.:24:56.

was produced after her mother passed away. I think my mother

:24:56.:25:01.

would have been really pleased. And the weekend we trotted off, it was

:25:01.:25:10.

Mothering Sunday. -- dropped it off. Sitting alongside famous artists,

:25:10.:25:16.

but two hope it is just the beginning for them.

:25:16.:25:20.
