This is East Midlands today. Tonight, police prepare for the

:00:04.:00:12.

worst, after last night's riots. In Nottingham, police stations were

:00:13.:00:19.

attacked, and almost 90 arrested. In Leicester, police in riot gear

:00:19.:00:23.

tried to stop you taking control the city centre. Even charities

:00:23.:00:27.

were hit. We just can not believe what has

:00:27.:00:34.

happened, devastated. Also tonight, behind and is on for this man as

:00:34.:00:37.

victims of sexual assault face up to their ordeal.

:00:37.:00:47.
:00:47.:00:48.

I have not come to terms with it. I will be finding out why a more and

:00:48.:00:58.
:00:58.:01:02.

more people are using be PDSA Good evening. Police officers

:01:02.:01:05.

across the East Midlands are again preparing to spend the night on the

:01:05.:01:11.

streets to prevent gangs of youths causing damage and destruction. In

:01:11.:01:14.

the worst outbreak of violence so far, police arrested more than 100

:01:14.:01:19.

people last night. The vast majority were in Nottingham, where

:01:19.:01:23.

89 people were taken into custody. In Leicester, 14 arrests were made

:01:23.:01:27.

for public order, damage and burglary offences. In Derbyshire,

:01:27.:01:35.

two 15 year-old youths are under arrest.

:01:35.:01:38.

The worst outbreak of violence was in the City of Nottingham, where

:01:38.:01:40.

five police stations came under attack, a college was firebombed,

:01:40.:01:43.

gangs tried to break into three pubs, and cars across the city were

:01:44.:01:47.

set on fire and destroyed. There were also reports of children

:01:47.:01:52.

setting fire to trees. Our chief news reporter was out on

:01:52.:01:55.

the streets of Nottingham last night and joins us now from the

:01:55.:02:02.

headquarters of Nottingham police at Sherwood Lodge.

:02:03.:02:11.

Good evening Quentin. Good evening. It is here, of course, much of the

:02:11.:02:14.

effort to control and co-ordinate the operation against the violence

:02:14.:02:20.

and rioting is being co-ordinated. For the third night, running. Last

:02:20.:02:25.

night, this force had to deal with thousands of calls as well as

:02:25.:02:31.

hundreds of incidents. It left three officers injured and so far,

:02:31.:02:34.

more than 90 people arrested. I spent all of last night on the

:02:34.:02:37.

streets of Nottingham, keeping up with some of the events as they

:02:37.:02:47.

unfolded. Captured on a foam, the moment when

:02:47.:02:51.

Canning Circus police station was hit by fire bombs.

:02:51.:02:57.

-- a phone. The damage from the petrol bomb attack can be clearly

:02:57.:03:01.

seen outside the police station. At the time of the attack there

:03:01.:03:04.

were still officers inside the building. The man who filmed the

:03:05.:03:12.

attack from his rooftop just could not believe his eyes. I was scared,

:03:12.:03:16.

making sure they did not see me. When they started throwing bombs at

:03:16.:03:24.

the police station, I was utterly disgusted with what was going on.

:03:24.:03:28.

It was quite scary. I put it was safe, living close to a police

:03:28.:03:34.

station, but apparently not. 20 utes later attacked another

:03:34.:03:39.

police station. It was all over him a couple of minutes. -- youths. The

:03:39.:03:43.

attack here is typical of the type of attacks throughout the night in

:03:43.:03:48.

Nottingham. Quick and sporadic examples of hit-and-run vandalism.

:03:48.:03:52.

Officers here expressed frustration that they could not chase the

:03:52.:03:56.

vandals because they would lose them in the alleyways. By 3am there

:03:56.:04:00.

were 90 arrests, and although there was little looting, officers were

:04:00.:04:06.

alarmed by how many young people were found carrying weapons.

:04:06.:04:09.

Some of the damage was apparent in the darkness last night, but the

:04:09.:04:14.

full extent is only revealed in daylight. Car owners came out to

:04:14.:04:17.

survey the damage to their vehicles on Moorgate Street and Holden

:04:17.:04:19.

Street, close to Canning Circus, where last night's firebombing took

:04:19.:04:25.

place. Residents said between 30 and 40 youths went on the rampage,

:04:25.:04:30.

throwing bricks, smashing windows and jumping on rooves. For some,

:04:30.:04:40.
:04:40.:04:40.

the cost of repairs has cost them in other ways.

:04:40.:04:44.

I have enough money to get to Portugal, but not enough to get

:04:44.:04:52.

back. I cannot pay it for my holiday. An insurance company would

:04:52.:05:02.
:05:02.:05:04.

right of the car. After last night's violence in Leicester,

:05:04.:05:07.

twice as many police officers will be on the streets tonight. The

:05:07.:05:10.

force also reveal that it has refused to send staff to help out

:05:10.:05:20.
:05:20.:05:31.

in other areas of the country. The night the centre of Leicester was

:05:31.:05:35.

locked down as groups of masked troublemakers played cat and mouse

:05:35.:05:41.

with police, attacking shopfronts over several hours. We saw lads on

:05:41.:05:45.

bikes with golf clubs, they started smashing in windows, taking

:05:45.:05:55.

everything. Money has gone, phones gone, Juri... Everything. They have

:05:55.:06:01.

no reason, they are not fighting for the man he got shot in London.

:06:01.:06:06.

There was looting of shops, even Poundstretcher. Children as young

:06:06.:06:16.

as 12 were taking part. What do their parents think they are doing?

:06:16.:06:20.

Do those parents take no responsibility for their kids? Did

:06:20.:06:28.

not ask what they are doing and try to stop them? As tensions rose, the

:06:28.:06:31.

police tried to clear the streets. Nightclub bouncers even found

:06:31.:06:34.

themselves having to stop people leaving, because it was not safe

:06:34.:06:40.

outside. It was a long night. Things are finally under control

:06:40.:06:44.

here, just after 2am. Now we have to think about clearing up the

:06:44.:06:50.

damage. The clean-up has already started

:06:50.:06:53.

but it will take some time. In Leicester, daylight revealed the

:06:53.:06:59.

random nature of the rioting. It seems it is not just the likes of

:06:59.:07:02.

shoe shops and electrical shops which are targets, but even a

:07:02.:07:08.

charity ambulance. Hours after the rioting finished, there were still

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

masked men in the streets of the city.

:07:18.:07:23.

Another day, another city, another riot.

:07:23.:07:30.

Here is part of the aftermath, a burned out minibus for Age Concern.

:07:30.:07:33.

The youngsters who have done the damage are hitting as are their own

:07:33.:07:37.

community, the oldest and most frail members of that community.

:07:37.:07:41.

All of us are devastated and cannot believe what has happened.

:07:41.:07:45.

A new minibus will cost �45,000. The charity says during these tough

:07:45.:07:49.

times, it simply cannot afford it. In the centre of Leicester, more

:07:50.:07:55.

damage. People had been telling me a gang of youths came running down

:07:55.:07:59.

this street, they smashed this window and then ran down here,

:07:59.:08:03.

smashing this door as they went. They smashed another window, and

:08:03.:08:10.

then carried on by attacking one of the oldest businesses in Leicester.

:08:10.:08:14.

I am the grandson of the founder of the company and it is disappointing

:08:14.:08:19.

that this has happened in Leicester. I am saddened that it has happened

:08:19.:08:27.

on our doorstep. Young men Wearing masks and concealing their faces

:08:27.:08:30.

were stopped by the police, one of them told me what happened last

:08:30.:08:40.
:08:40.:08:41.

night. It kicked off and that was it.

:08:41.:08:51.
:08:51.:08:52.

lot of people are saying why? not doing it, everybody else is. It

:08:52.:09:00.

is because of London. It is a sad day for Leicester. We

:09:00.:09:04.

are proud of the city and it is a small number of people, less than

:09:04.:09:08.

150, he decided to get involved in criminal damage to our businesses.

:09:08.:09:13.

This is local people damaging local properties.

:09:13.:09:18.

We should not let these hooligans run our lives. As members of the

:09:18.:09:23.

faith communities, we ask people for calm.

:09:23.:09:28.

Beat in the operation is still under way as costs mount. There is

:09:28.:09:37.

a sense of disbelief. -- v clean up operation.

:09:37.:09:41.

I saw a number of police vans heading South to Nottingham earlier.

:09:41.:09:45.

We are also getting reports that the force has drafted in extra

:09:45.:09:50.

officers from other forces around the country. I will be asking an

:09:50.:09:56.

Assistant Chief Constable about that later in the programme. I am

:09:56.:09:59.

joined in the studio by the Bishop of Sherwood, Tony Porter. He

:09:59.:10:06.

prefers to be called Bishop Tony, or Bishop, but not Your Grace.

:10:06.:10:13.

What thoughts went through your mind when you saw those pictures?

:10:13.:10:21.

was disappointed and depressed. were a policeman for some time in

:10:21.:10:26.

Manchester. He worked in areas, poor areas, many people we have

:10:26.:10:31.

spoken to have no idea why this has happened. The UK having taken

:10:31.:10:38.

matador? -- do you have any taken this? I work with the police

:10:38.:10:43.

closely in Moss Side for many years. This is a continuation of family

:10:43.:10:47.

breakdown. It is sad to say. But when young people have no adult

:10:47.:10:53.

role models, when their role models are elder siblings, who put two

:10:53.:10:57.

fingers up at teachers and the police... They learn from them. We,

:10:57.:11:02.

as a generation, have to take some responsibility. We have not been

:11:02.:11:07.

great role models as parents. single mother on radio this morning

:11:07.:11:10.

said, she tried everything she could with her son but he still got

:11:10.:11:15.

into trouble. She went to court and said, do what you will with him.

:11:15.:11:19.

And the court did not give him a sentence and she had to pay a fine.

:11:19.:11:23.

She said it is not my fault, I do not give any support from the

:11:23.:11:30.

authorities. I understand the frustration. I think that parenting

:11:30.:11:40.

courses are very important. People need to be taught parenting skills.

:11:40.:11:46.

We pray that people will learn from be teaching to be good parents.

:11:46.:11:50.

Some people think, I am a parent, do I need outside interference

:11:50.:11:57.

telling me had to look after my children? And think what we are

:11:58.:12:01.

seeing on the streets, the answer to that is yes. We do not want to

:12:01.:12:06.

force people to do it, we want them to wanted. The hunger to be a good

:12:06.:12:12.

parent means good teaching. Very briefly, as a senior member of the

:12:12.:12:17.

Church, do you ever despair when you see the scenes on our streets?

:12:17.:12:21.

I never despair because we worked together in Moss Side for the good

:12:21.:12:25.

of the community. I have been with the come -- the police in St Anns

:12:25.:12:30.

today and seen wonderful things. I never despair.

:12:30.:12:37.

Thank you. You are watching East Midlands today. A 34-year-old man

:12:37.:12:40.

has appeared in court charged with murdering a woman in Derby.

:12:40.:12:43.

Danielle Thompson, who was 22, was found injured at a house in

:12:43.:12:46.

Chaddesden, early on Saturday morning. She had stab wounds and

:12:46.:12:49.

died in hospital. Martin Shaw was remanded in custody until October,

:12:49.:12:54.

when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court.

:12:54.:12:57.

Derby City Council has paid out 60% more to people who have had their

:12:58.:13:00.

vehicles damaged by potholes compared to the previous year. More

:13:00.:13:03.

than �4,600 has been handed out, almost sixty claims for

:13:03.:13:11.

compensation remain unresolved. The council say it is partly down to

:13:11.:13:21.
:13:21.:13:26.

compensation culture. A woman has described how she tried to fight

:13:26.:13:29.

off an attacker in Leicester as he sexually assaulted her. Today,

:13:29.:13:33.

police released a new image of the suspect who they want to speak to

:13:33.:13:39.

about three indecent assaults that happened on the same day.

:13:39.:13:43.

This is the suspect, walking through Leicester on the morning of

:13:43.:13:48.

Saturday, 8th January, this year. Between 7 and 9 m that day, three

:13:48.:13:58.
:13:58.:14:05.

women aged 25, 74 and 56 were assaulted. -- 7 and 9 am. I went

:14:05.:14:10.

into survival mode. I knew I would never go down without a fight. I

:14:10.:14:14.

had thought, previously, I would have laid down and thought of

:14:14.:14:19.

England of his had happened. But I fought back. Victims have helped to

:14:19.:14:23.

generate his image of the suspect, who is described as a mid-twenties

:14:23.:14:27.

and over six foot tall. One victim says she cannot come to terms what

:14:27.:14:32.

has happened until he is caught. Every time you close your eyes, he

:14:32.:14:37.

is there, in your head. He is just scanning, his face in your head.

:14:37.:14:42.

Every time you go out, you scan the crowds, looking it and hoping to

:14:42.:14:49.

see him. We are concerned, this man has committed three offences,

:14:49.:14:57.

within a short space of time. I am concerned there are more victims to

:14:57.:15:02.

have not come forward. If there are, I urge them to come forward.

:15:03.:15:07.

This afternoon, officers handed out leaflets of the man. Seven months

:15:07.:15:11.

after these crimes were committed, the police hope this latest appeal

:15:11.:15:21.
:15:21.:15:25.

for information will finally lead them to the person responsible.

:15:25.:15:30.

More and more people are using an animal charity. The PDSA says

:15:31.:15:34.

people should be more careful what animals they use, so they know they

:15:34.:15:43.

can look after them properly. Oscar, a Cocker spaniel, visits the

:15:43.:15:49.

People's Dispensary for Sick animals. Be PDSA is a charity and

:15:49.:15:53.

people on means tested in order to benefit from its services. Oscar's

:15:53.:15:57.

owners both lost their jobs. It is now more difficult to pay for

:15:57.:16:06.

treatment. These days you cannot visit the set without a hundred

:16:06.:16:13.

pounds in your pocket. Over the last five years, the

:16:13.:16:22.

demand for PDSA services has increased by over 60%. Be PDSA has

:16:22.:16:27.

just introduced limits on pedigree pets. Owners can now only register

:16:27.:16:32.

one new pedigree animal instead of three. Specially bred animals can

:16:32.:16:35.

tend to suffer more health problems. Vets Citybus should take more care

:16:35.:16:45.
:16:45.:16:47.

in choosing their pets. You have to think carefully about

:16:47.:16:53.

what pets you have. We tried to help people. We are not a finger

:16:53.:16:57.

wagging organisation, we are here to help people.

:16:57.:17:05.

The charity relies on public donations. Pedigree animals are

:17:05.:17:11.

expensive. Unemployed people will have a mongrel. It is a good idea.

:17:11.:17:15.

Private debt build a so extortionate.

:17:15.:17:25.
:17:25.:17:26.

It is a value service, had pleaded all benefit.

:17:26.:17:34.

Hopefully people will benefit. Time for sport. 16 goals and seven

:17:34.:17:38.

penalties coming up after just one night of football.

:17:38.:17:41.

Yes, a goal-tastic sport for you this evening, starting with one of

:17:41.:17:44.

the best cup-ties Nottingham Forest manager Steve McLaren says he has

:17:44.:17:51.

ever seen. Last night's game with Notts County was a belter. Six

:17:51.:17:55.

goals and seven penalties flew into the back of the net on a memorable

:17:55.:18:04.

night. It was the shortest away drive for the best game some had

:18:04.:18:11.

ever seen. A crowd of over 21,000 were there, dizzy chance after

:18:11.:18:16.

chance, right from the off. A truly unforgettable Nottingham derby.

:18:16.:18:21.

County, the underdogs, started of better. Mike Edwards poked them

:18:21.:18:27.

into the lead. Then, it was Forest's Turner, in his classic

:18:27.:18:32.

cup-tie. Nottingham born Louis McGugan scored with a spectacular

:18:32.:18:39.

free-kick. After half-time, good work set-up Robert Feng Li to score

:18:39.:18:45.

his first goal for Forest. -- Finley. 15 minutes to full-time and

:18:45.:18:49.

former Forest man Craig West car announced his arrival in perfect

:18:49.:18:55.

fashion. So, the game went into extra-time. Not so went ahead again

:18:55.:19:03.

with a goal from Hughes. 6,000 not fans thought they were heading for

:19:03.:19:09.

a famous victory, but with seconds to go, wears Morgan, a man born and

:19:09.:19:13.

raised within walking distance of both grounds, spanked the ball at

:19:13.:19:21.

the top corner. -- West Morgan. This took the tie into a remarkable

:19:21.:19:26.

penalty shoot-out. The crucial kick fell to Captain looked Chambers,

:19:26.:19:33.

who scored the vital penalty, which secured the win. Then Neil Bishop

:19:33.:19:43.
:19:43.:19:47.

lifted the final kick of the It it has been a roller-coaster.

:19:48.:19:53.

Our players were fantastic, I thought we had more chances.

:19:53.:19:58.

reminded me of a boxing match, standing toe-to-toe, exchanging

:19:58.:20:02.

blows. We were lucky denied that we stayed on our feet.

:20:02.:20:05.

There were no arrests before, during or after the game, which has

:20:05.:20:12.

prompted great praise for the fans. At Leicester, the only way is

:20:12.:20:14.

Schlup! What a night for youngster Jeffrey

:20:14.:20:22.

Schlup. Sorry about that. He scored a hat-trick on his competitive

:20:22.:20:29.

debut in the Cup win at Rotherham, and he is just 18. Leicester are

:20:29.:20:32.

are the big spenders of the championship, but they may just

:20:32.:20:35.

have found a priceless gem among their own ranks.

:20:35.:20:41.

It took Jeffrey Schlup just 18 second half minutes to notch his

:20:41.:20:46.

three goals and turn the tide -- vitae with Rotherham on its head.

:20:46.:20:49.

It was one-all at the time and Jeffrey Schlup showed real

:20:49.:20:55.

confidence. -- half-time. The other two goals were striker's efforts,

:20:55.:21:01.

have been to put the tie beyond Rotherham's reach. For the record,

:21:01.:21:07.

Leicester scored all of The Gulls last night, despite it being a 4 -

:21:08.:21:17.
:21:18.:21:18.

1 win. -- the goals. Paul Gallacher levelled things up with a rare

:21:18.:21:26.

header. So, not a bad way to make your debut and prove you do not

:21:26.:21:30.

always have to spend millions to bring success.

:21:30.:21:33.

On to Derby, and former defender and local lad Chris Riggott has

:21:33.:21:37.

signed a one-year deal with the club. Some good news for the Rams

:21:37.:21:47.
:21:47.:21:47.

then, after last night's humbling by League Two Shrewsbury. First-

:21:47.:21:51.

round exits are becoming the norm for Derby. Beaten for the third

:21:51.:21:57.

time in a row by a league two side. Derby were down by half-time and it

:21:57.:22:01.

was a former Derby man who did with them. Lionel Ainsworth only played

:22:01.:22:06.

a few games, but he said that all three of Shrewsbury's goals. Nigel

:22:06.:22:09.

Clough thought some of his players did not put enough effort. They

:22:09.:22:15.

were booed off at half-time with Clough facing a tricky team-talk.

:22:15.:22:20.

It was an embarrassing one. I'm embarrassed for us and some of the

:22:20.:22:27.

first-half performances. We got an early goal and the second half.

:22:27.:22:30.

That goal was a first for Chris Maguire, who has moved from

:22:30.:22:33.

Aberdeen. Derby were on the front foot again but Shrewsbury nearly

:22:33.:22:38.

scored a 4th on the break. Theo Robinson finished off a neat move

:22:38.:22:45.

to makes things close but it was not enough. Hoping to get some have

:22:45.:22:48.

his injured players back for Saturday's game at Watford, he

:22:48.:22:50.

might need them. In cricket, Nottinghamshire's

:22:50.:22:53.

Stuart Broad has continued his good form for England in the third Test

:22:53.:22:57.

against India at Edgbaston. He took a wicket with his first ball and

:22:57.:23:00.

added three more victims as India were bowled out for just 224 on the

:23:00.:23:05.

first day. This was star man Sachin Tendulkar going cheaply. Broad's

:23:05.:23:15.

other key wicket was that of MS Dhoni, who went for 77. And England

:23:15.:23:25.

ended the day on 84 To Nothing. Back now to a Allam may store we,

:23:25.:23:29.
