Dominic Heale and Anne Davies. Our top story tonight, losing benefit

:00:03.:00:13.
:00:13.:00:13.

and losing patience. Dave Hardwick is appealing against the loss of

:00:13.:00:16.

his disability allowance but there's a huge backlog.

:00:16.:00:19.

I have to wait 15 months for an appeal against a Government

:00:19.:00:22.

decision, totally wrong. Also tonight, doing the rounds, the "do

:00:22.:00:27.

not disturb" vests helping nurses to help patients.

:00:27.:00:30.

Plus how the 9/11 attacks changed everything for this Nottinghamshire

:00:30.:00:37.

fire fighter. It changed my life massively and it has taken hours

:00:37.:00:43.

and hours of not only my life but my family's life as well.

:00:43.:00:48.

summer goes out with a bang. The excitement, the ups and downs and

:00:48.:00:58.
:00:58.:01:10.

Good evening and welcome to East Midlands Today. First tonight, a

:01:10.:01:13.

pensioner stripped of �100 per week in benefits says he's being forced

:01:13.:01:19.

to wait 15 months to appeal against the decision. Dave Hardwick from

:01:19.:01:22.

Derbyshire has written to the Prime Minister to complain about the

:01:22.:01:26.

delay. But the Government admits there's now a backlog of 180,000

:01:26.:01:36.
:01:36.:01:39.

cases in the benefit appeals system. Pensioner Dave Hardwick has

:01:39.:01:44.

arthritis, diabetes and other health problems but the Government

:01:44.:01:47.

has stopped part of his Disability Living Allowance earlier this year.

:01:47.:01:51.

He claims that has stripped him of around �100 per week. He is

:01:51.:01:55.

appealing against the decision but has been told it will take 15

:01:55.:02:01.

months to go to a tribunal. I am existing but I am just existing,

:02:01.:02:05.

but people desperately need this money who are far worse off than me

:02:05.:02:10.

and to wait 15 months for an appeal against a Government decision? It

:02:10.:02:13.

is totally wrong. He has also written directly to the Prime

:02:13.:02:16.

Minister to complain about the long wait for his tribunal to be heard.

:02:16.:02:24.

He has not had a reply. He says he is now living on his state pension

:02:24.:02:29.

of around �136 per week. Put money so tight that he has to limit the

:02:29.:02:34.

amount of diesel he puts into his brand new mobility car. A car paid

:02:34.:02:39.

for by the benefits system. I have to go to hospital in Derby four

:02:39.:02:45.

times every few weeks and at the end of the day, that is the only

:02:45.:02:48.

diesel I can afford so I can't use it for getting around and

:02:48.:02:52.

socialising. The Government's tribunal services there has been a

:02:52.:02:56.

large number of increases in tribunal cases going to appeal. The

:02:56.:03:00.

backlog stands at around 180,000 cases. More than half of them are

:03:00.:03:05.

the result of people being denied incapacity benefit. Something which

:03:05.:03:12.

Dave Hardwick was not even claiming. He now wants more resources put

:03:12.:03:15.

into the tribunal system to cut waiting times.

:03:15.:03:18.

To discuss that case and the wider issues, I'm joined now by David

:03:18.:03:20.

Jones, the East Midlands treasurer for the National Pensioners

:03:20.:03:28.

Convention pressure group. That is a long title! How unusual is this

:03:28.:03:31.

case, Dave Hardwick - a pensioner being caught up in a backlog of

:03:31.:03:34.

tribunal cases, more than half of them to do with incapacity benefit,

:03:34.:03:41.

a benefit that Dave Hardwick wasn't even claiming? It is not quite as

:03:41.:03:45.

unusual as you think but I know of one in Gloucestershire and I known

:03:45.:03:48.

nationally they have been picking up a lot around the country.

:03:48.:03:51.

Sometimes they are connected to the disability side which is a real

:03:51.:03:58.

problem. The upshot is that Dave is left with basically a state pension,

:03:58.:04:04.

is that enough given that he needs help? Absolutely not. It is bad

:04:04.:04:09.

enough for a normal pension are to be on the basic pension. Our

:04:09.:04:11.

position is that the basic state pension should be above the poverty

:04:11.:04:16.

level which is �178, that would get rid of means testing and that

:04:16.:04:19.

catches people out because if you lose means testing you lose

:04:19.:04:24.

everything. Is there anything that can be done about this 15 month

:04:24.:04:28.

wait? The Government has brought people in because they were aware

:04:28.:04:34.

that there would be so many people. The national pensions have been on

:04:34.:04:39.

to the Government already and a few months ago, they got a standard

:04:39.:04:43.

reply, they will look at it and they will come back at how they

:04:43.:04:46.

will look at recruiting. My own personal view of this now thinking

:04:46.:04:50.

about it, they need to separated from the tribunal and have a

:04:50.:04:54.

separate way of dealing with it. It is actually going to get worse. It

:04:54.:05:00.

really is. And people who have been denied their benefits, they will

:05:00.:05:03.

have to wait all this time for an appeal and in the meantime, will

:05:03.:05:08.

they get the money back if it is found in your favour? The big

:05:08.:05:12.

question. Let's hope so that is not the problem, the real problem is

:05:12.:05:16.

the fact they have not got things to live on and very often they need

:05:16.:05:20.

care. To be able to have that money particularly if they have got a

:05:20.:05:26.

personal budget, they have got a problem, where do they go? We will

:05:26.:05:32.

leave at there, but Dave, thanks Three men have been sentenced for

:05:32.:05:35.

their part in placing a pig's head near the site of a proposed mosque

:05:35.:05:39.

in Nottinghamshire. Nottingham magistrates heard that the offence

:05:39.:05:42.

was racially and religiously aggravated. All three defendants

:05:43.:05:45.

today were fined, another defendant was given a suspended prison

:05:45.:05:55.
:05:55.:05:56.

sentence in July, for his part in On 23rd June this year, a woman and

:05:56.:06:00.

her young daughter were walking around Collington way in West

:06:00.:06:03.

Bridgford. As they passed this piece of land, earmarked for a

:06:03.:06:08.

possible mosque they found a pig's head stuck on a pole with two

:06:08.:06:14.

deeply offensive words written on the pig. On the ground was spray-

:06:14.:06:24.
:06:24.:06:26.

painted "no mosque here, EDL Nottinghamshire". 41-year-old Wayne

:06:26.:06:35.

and 20 when -- 22-year-old seen here in light coloured coats and

:06:35.:06:38.

20-year-old Robert seen here on the right with a tie. All three

:06:38.:06:48.
:06:48.:06:50.

admitted the role in racially and religiously aggravated harassment.

:06:50.:06:54.

The judge said all three of you should be ashamed, very ashamed.

:06:54.:06:59.

The court also heard on armed forces Day on Nottingham, two days

:06:59.:07:03.

after the pigs had incident, Wayne also shouted highly insulting

:07:03.:07:06.

phrases at some Muslims who set up a stall in Nottingham city centre.

:07:06.:07:12.

For his part in both these incidents, the man with glasses was

:07:12.:07:20.

given fines and costs. Nicholas Long was given fines and costs of

:07:20.:07:25.

�300 as was Adam. In July, another defendant was given a suspended

:07:25.:07:31.

prison sentence for his part in place in the pig's head.

:07:31.:07:34.

Police have arrested a third person in connection with a stabbing in

:07:34.:07:37.

Derby. A 22-year-old man was stabbed on Saturday night at

:07:37.:07:43.

Sunnyhill Avenue outside an off- licence. Police say he is in a

:07:43.:07:46.

serious but stable condition in hospital. A 15-year-old boy was

:07:46.:07:50.

arrested last night. Two men are also being questioned.

:07:50.:07:56.

Coming up later, the tenth anniversary of 9/11. We meet an

:07:56.:07:59.

East Midlands fireman whose life was changed forever by the attack

:07:59.:08:09.
:08:09.:08:15.

It's an important week for Bombardier and its workforce in

:08:15.:08:20.

Derby. On Wednesday MPs will begin an inquiry into why the firm missed

:08:20.:08:27.

out on the �1.4 billion Thameslink contract. But ahead of that, it's

:08:27.:08:29.

emerged that over 800 UK companies that supply Bombardier could also

:08:29.:08:38.

be badly hit. Here's our chief news The effect of the Government's

:08:38.:08:41.

decision to award the huge Thameslink contract to the German

:08:41.:08:44.

firm Siemens has already been felt at Bombardier with the loss of

:08:44.:08:49.

1,400 jobs at its Derby base. The Canadian owners are also reviewing

:08:49.:08:56.

their UK operations. But the wider knock-on effects are still emerging.

:08:56.:08:59.

According to the Unite union, the ripples from Derby have spread to

:08:59.:09:02.

suppliers across the UK from as far apart as Edinburgh and London,

:09:02.:09:05.

taking in major cities such as Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester

:09:05.:09:09.

and Nottingham. Even places not usually associated with train-

:09:09.:09:12.

making such as Weston-super-Mare in Somerset and Horsham in West Sussex

:09:12.:09:17.

will be affected. The union estimates that around 830 firms

:09:17.:09:20.

will be hit putting up to 10,000 jobs nationwide under potential

:09:20.:09:26.

threat. Tomorrow the union will publish a survey of suppliers which

:09:26.:09:29.

will show that a large percentage are laying off staff and fear for

:09:29.:09:33.

the future. And Derby City Council says it's proposing to financially

:09:33.:09:38.

support any judicial review brought by Unite. Despite mass protests,

:09:38.:09:40.

the Prime Minister won't budge, insisting the contract was awarded

:09:40.:09:46.

fairly in accordance with EU rules. 200 people will travel down on a

:09:46.:09:48.

special train from Derby on Wednesday in the hope the Transport

:09:48.:09:51.

Select Committee will disagree with the PM and recommend a retendering

:09:51.:09:59.

of the contract. A man serving a life sentence for

:09:59.:10:05.

murder has absconded from Sudbury Prison in Derbyshire. 41-year-old

:10:05.:10:08.

Steven Blissett failed to return to the prison yesterday after being

:10:08.:10:13.

released on a temporary licence. He was sentenced to life imprisonment

:10:13.:10:17.

for murder in 1997. He's described as five-foot-eight with a slim

:10:18.:10:22.

build. 36-year-old Mark Carter has also absconded. He's described as

:10:22.:10:27.

five-foot-ten with a medium build and a Midlands accent.

:10:27.:10:30.

Officers investigating a fire that broke out at a disused school in

:10:30.:10:34.

Nottingham say it was started deliberately. Firefighters were

:10:34.:10:37.

called to the Old Becket School in West Bridgford just after seven

:10:37.:10:44.

last night. As this viewer's footage shows, the fire was started

:10:44.:10:47.

in a wooden portable classroom. The building has been unused since the

:10:47.:10:56.

school moved to a new site two years ago. No-one was hurt. The

:10:56.:11:00.

Government has approved plans to close two walk-in centres for the

:11:00.:11:04.

NHS despite local opposition. The Nottinghamshire NHS Trust announced

:11:04.:11:08.

it wanted to close the care be in Ashfield and Stapleford centres

:11:08.:11:12.

earlier this year but the county council referred the matter to

:11:12.:11:15.

ministers. The Health Secretary says the centre's can close as long

:11:15.:11:19.

as the local health services which remain offer the same quality or

:11:19.:11:22.

possibly even better. Hospital managers say patient

:11:22.:11:24.

safety has improved since nurses started wearing "do not disturb"

:11:25.:11:29.

vests whilst doing drug rounds. Some patients groups have

:11:29.:11:33.

criticised the idea. But anecdotal evidence in Derby suggests staff

:11:33.:11:36.

have been able to focus better on delivering medication because of

:11:36.:11:46.
:11:46.:11:48.

fewer interruptions. Our health This might appeal to many workers,

:11:48.:11:53.

the first version of what nurses walk on the Derby Hospital's drug

:11:53.:11:58.

round. It was decided to keep the concept of "do not disturb" but

:11:58.:12:03.

give an explanation. To put the programmes on there. Here's the

:12:03.:12:06.

garment second version brought in. Patients do not see red, it is

:12:06.:12:13.

aimed at them and deterring staff from interrupting. It reduces the

:12:13.:12:18.

risk of mistakes. It has made a definite improvement. Not many

:12:18.:12:24.

people interrupting us which is vital. Derby hospitals say it has

:12:24.:12:28.

reduced errors by 10% but could not be specific on exact numbers.

:12:28.:12:33.

Across the NHS in England and Wales, 133,000 drug mistakes were admitted

:12:33.:12:39.

last year. That is an average of 364 per day. In Derby, people had

:12:39.:12:46.

seen the sense of bringing in the garment. I know I would be

:12:46.:12:53.

reassured that they are giving everything there for concentration.

:12:53.:13:00.

Does this give the right message to patients? Surely nurses should be

:13:00.:13:05.

able to multi- task. If we have got patients who require assistance

:13:05.:13:08.

which is non urgent, there are always other people who are able to

:13:08.:13:12.

assist the patient with that. Increasing numbers of hospitals are

:13:12.:13:15.

using similar versions. In Leicester, it is used in selected

:13:15.:13:25.

It does make you stop and not speak to them when they are doing the

:13:25.:13:29.

drug grounds. Probably a good idea. School catchment areas in Leicester

:13:29.:13:33.

are to be reviewed for the first time in more than a decade. The

:13:33.:13:36.

move comes after a family were refused a place for their son at a

:13:36.:13:40.

primary school on their street. Andy and Louise Cooper now have to

:13:40.:13:44.

drive 75 miles a week to take their son Charlie to a school on the

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:13:54.

other side of the city. Victoria The Coopers have their own tale to

:13:54.:13:58.

tell when it comes to school catchment boundaries. This is

:13:58.:14:02.

George, their eldest son Charlie has been at school today. But not

:14:02.:14:07.

at the school on their Street. That is considered out of catchment.

:14:07.:14:12.

spent hours and hours fight in the council, writing to them, trying to

:14:12.:14:17.

get anybody to see sense but we are in an absurd situation. All the

:14:17.:14:22.

children on the street walking past our house to the school, or

:14:22.:14:24.

Charlie's friends and neighbours going to the school, and Charlie

:14:25.:14:33.

Knott. I can show you why this is an absurd situation. You only have

:14:33.:14:36.

to walk 100 metres down to the bottom of the street and there it

:14:36.:14:41.

is, and entrance to the school. Montrose primary school. But this

:14:41.:14:45.

street has a bizarre catchment area. That side is considered in

:14:45.:14:51.

catchment, and the sad that the Coopers is considered out of

:14:51.:14:54.

catchments of the school was not able to offer charlie Cooper a

:14:54.:14:59.

place despite two appeals. Today, the Mayor of Leicester has ordered

:14:59.:15:02.

a review of catchment areas in the City to stop a situation like this

:15:02.:15:06.

happening again. Once the review is completed, we have an opportunity

:15:06.:15:14.

to put it into place and to make sure of that by this time next year,

:15:14.:15:17.

the situation which is frankly appalling, having neglected these

:15:17.:15:22.

catchment areas, is put right and we are able to make sure that

:15:22.:15:27.

children are able, particularly on the doorstep of a school, to attend.

:15:27.:15:32.

It is shocking and disgusting how we have been treated. Thankfully

:15:32.:15:38.

today, it seems that our hard work has paid off and this will affect

:15:38.:15:41.

and benefit all families in Leicester and that, I am very

:15:41.:15:46.

pleased about. Well this review may come too late for the Coopers, many

more families in the City could A new crackdown on metal theft in

:15:54.:15:58.

Derbyshire has led to the arrest of eight people in the first 24 hours.

:15:58.:16:00.

Derbyshire Police launched Operation Calanthia after a surge

:16:00.:16:05.

in metal thefts from homes, churches and railway lines. Four

:16:05.:16:08.

men were arrested on a disused train track in North Derbyshire on

:16:08.:16:12.

Friday. Four teenagers were also arrested in Castle Gresley in South

:16:12.:16:18.

Derbyshire, after lead was found to be missing from homes.

Leicester. The city council's offering cash grants to

:16:24.:16:29.

organisations that can support and advise fledgling firms. It comes

after the city secured European funding to help the local economy.

Another �2 million is to be spent improving city streets and public

It's ten years this weekend since the attacks on the Twin Towers in

:16:43.:16:46.

New York and as we know it, 9/11, sent shockwaves right around the

:16:46.:16:52.

world. This week we're meeting people here in the East Midlands

:16:52.:16:56.

whose lives were changed forever. From terror attacks here in the UK

:16:56.:16:59.

to troops serving abroad or even something as mundane as catching a

:16:59.:17:04.

flight, we've all been affected by the security crackdown. For more,

:17:04.:17:06.

let's join our social affairs correspondent, Jeremy Ball, who's

:17:06.:17:16.
:17:16.:17:20.

I was watching TV and it was an unbelievable sight. The guys were

:17:20.:17:24.

going in and the towers were going down, you knew there would be fatal

:17:24.:17:29.

it is. 2002 was the first anniversary of 9/11, I was

:17:29.:17:34.

wondering what I could do myself. Down at Ground Zero we met a lot of

:17:34.:17:39.

people from New York, firefighters and we got talking to each other,

:17:39.:17:44.

exchanging gifts and T-shirts and caps and things like that. And I

:17:44.:17:50.

managed to make a few friends and we kept in touch. Mark soon got

:17:50.:17:54.

invited to help out with a firefighters' charity. It collects

:17:54.:17:58.

used fire fighting equipment for countries where it is desperately

:17:58.:18:01.

needed. I went to see the chief at that time and asked him if we could

:18:02.:18:06.

help the foundation. Some of the kit has gone to the Philippines,

:18:06.:18:10.

they used to fight fires in flip- flops and short. And we helped out

:18:10.:18:14.

in the floods in New Orleans as well. 9/11 has changed my life

:18:14.:18:18.

massively and it has taken hours and hours of not only my life but

:18:18.:18:22.

my family's life as well. And as New York commemorates the twin

:18:23.:18:29.

tower attacks this weekend, Mark's has been invited to join the

:18:29.:18:34.

memorial services. It would be very emotional, to go to New York, we

:18:34.:18:38.

have been there on numerous occasions and they look after us

:18:38.:18:42.

like we are one of their own. I cannot put into words what 9/11 did

:18:42.:18:48.

to me. It is a big part of our life now. Another story tomorrow from

:18:48.:18:58.
:18:58.:18:59.

someone else's life was changed by nine 9/11.

:18:59.:19:03.

Still to come, a bit of a party at the palace of the peaks. We'll have

:19:03.:19:13.
:19:13.:19:18.

all the highlights of the three-day I wasn't there but I know somebody

:19:19.:19:24.

who was. Yes, but I missed the Red Arrows, but it was terrific on

:19:24.:19:29.

Saturday. We're in an international break so

:19:29.:19:32.

Notts County stepped into the spotlight, and duly delivered a

:19:32.:19:34.

command performance, dominating Bournemouth in a very enjoyable 3-1

:19:34.:19:38.

win. And today - to take a closer look - I get to play with our

:19:38.:19:48.
:19:48.:20:00.

A fantastic win for Notts County at the weekend and with no

:20:00.:20:04.

championship football, only one place for us to take our tactics

:20:04.:20:09.

truck and I am delighted to say, Martin Allen, good afternoon.

:20:09.:20:13.

I usually start the beginning with these things. But I am tempted to

:20:13.:20:23.
:20:23.:20:23.

start with this. This is a heck of belief and the confidence. I

:20:23.:20:28.

believe it is a bit of a South American quality, Lombardo, that

:20:28.:20:34.

sort of quality to him. That goal, the third for Notts County, was the

:20:34.:20:37.

way it started very well. Lee Hughes had not trained for a week,

:20:37.:20:41.

this was the first minute. That is what Lee Hughes has made a living

:20:42.:20:47.

from all these years. He gets his body in behind, he has taken the

:20:47.:20:51.

goalkeeper by surprised and it is rolling into the goal. Actually,

:20:51.:21:00.

this match could have been much better than it ended up being.

:21:00.:21:04.
