Dominic Heale and me, Anne Davies. Our top story tonight:

:00:03.:00:11.

The baby boy born on a bench in Belper.

:00:11.:00:18.

This is baby James. This is his proud mum, who have now up -- who

:00:18.:00:23.

have no idea she was pregnant and will he popped up in the street.

:00:23.:00:30.

Also tonight, Ken Clarke's verdict on the riot. Aware of feral

:00:30.:00:33.

underclass is too big, has been growing and now needs to be

:00:33.:00:42.

diminished. Plus we are at one school that has found out it can

:00:42.:00:47.

apply for cash to repair its crumbling classrooms. And the proof

:00:47.:00:52.

of the pudding - can Holly whip up a winner in the Great British Bake

:00:52.:01:02.
:01:02.:01:07.

Good evening. Welcome to Tuesday's programme. First tonight, a life-

:01:07.:01:12.

changing shock for Jane Eadie from Belper in Derbyshire. Jane felt

:01:12.:01:16.

unwell while she was out shopping. She thought perhaps it was food-

:01:16.:01:20.

poisoning. Then the 44-year-old staggered to a bench in the street

:01:20.:01:26.

and gave birth. Jane had no idea she was pregnant. Well today,

:01:26.:01:29.

recovering from the shock and back home with a beautiful baby son,

:01:29.:01:39.
:01:39.:01:40.

Jane spoke to Jo Healey. It is just amazing. A amazing to

:01:40.:01:46.

have him home, even more surprising for Jane to have him at all. --

:01:46.:01:54.

amazing. This is why. Jane was shopping in Belper and fair -- felt

:01:54.:01:59.

ill. She thought she had food- poisoning, but she was in the last

:02:00.:02:04.

stages of labour. She got some painkillers from the chemist and

:02:04.:02:14.

staggered over here and gave birth. It must have been such a shock for

:02:14.:02:20.

you? You have no idea, did you? didn't. Just an amazing feeling to

:02:20.:02:30.

see him been born like that, in the street. Everyone kept running up to

:02:30.:02:35.

last and congratulating us. We were just shocked. But what about the

:02:35.:02:40.

last nine months? Jenice 44 and thought she had been starting the

:02:40.:02:45.

menopause. She had come of tablets and thought that is why she was

:02:45.:02:49.

putting on weight. Being pregnant did not cross her mind. I could not

:02:49.:02:58.

believe it. It was like a dream. He is ever so gorgeous. He is my

:02:58.:03:07.

little brother. Elizabeth also has a little son, Jane's grandson. Here,

:03:07.:03:14.

he gets to know his newborn uncle. He will be a talking point in the

:03:14.:03:21.

family for generations to come. Next, dozens of crumbling schools

:03:21.:03:26.

have been given a glimmer of hope this evening after been earmarked

:03:26.:03:36.
:03:36.:03:36.

for new money. Nottinghamshire County Council has put in a bid for

:03:36.:03:40.

55 of its schools to be rebuilt. Sarah Teale is at County Hall this

:03:40.:03:43.

evening. Sarah, it sounds as though this could be good news for some

:03:43.:03:45.

schools? Well, yes, it is good news for some,

:03:45.:03:49.

and while I don't want to be a party pooper, of course not all of

:03:49.:03:52.

the schools being put forward will actually get rebuilt. In fact just

:03:52.:03:59.

a handful of those 55 probably. The government has made �2 billion

:03:59.:04:02.

available to rebuild some of the most run-down schools across the

:04:02.:04:04.

country. This is their replacement of the scrapped Building Schools

:04:04.:04:07.

for the Future programme. Only those urgently in need are likely

:04:07.:04:14.

to get the cash. Which is great news for one secondary I went to

:04:14.:04:24.
:04:24.:04:35.

They have papered over the cracks pretty well here, but even the

:04:35.:04:43.

children can point out which parts of the buildings are trash. We have

:04:43.:04:49.

got a hole where the roof has been leaking. The even the walls move.

:04:49.:04:54.

Every way you go it is clear to see just how run-down this court is. In

:04:54.:05:00.

fact, it was due to be completely knocked down and rebuilt, but those

:05:00.:05:10.
:05:10.:05:13.

plans were scrapped. Another victim of the axe coming down on the

:05:13.:05:17.

Building Schools for the Future programme. However, the council has

:05:17.:05:21.

now applied for new money to rebuild it. What would it mean for

:05:21.:05:24.

the staff and children to have a new school and to be taught

:05:24.:05:30.

somewhere modern? It will mean everything. They are desperate to

:05:30.:05:33.

have a learning environment that matches their hopes and aspirations.

:05:33.:05:41.

The council has also a bit of cash for another 10 secondary schools

:05:41.:05:49.

and 40 primary schools to be rebuilt. Not all of them will be we

:05:49.:05:54.

build, will they? We have got money set aside and a long list of

:05:54.:06:02.

schools will get something. And all the schools will find out whether

:06:02.:06:09.

their bids have been successful in December. So those schools that are

:06:09.:06:13.

successful will find that building work actually start this time next

:06:13.:06:21.

year and anywhere between 103 schools will be rebuilt. Thank you.

:06:21.:06:28.

Still to come, after the heat wave I am sorry to say there is a

:06:28.:06:33.

distinct chill in the air. You are certainly right. The

:06:33.:06:43.
:06:43.:06:58.

temperatures have been dropping. Autumn has well and truly returned.

:06:58.:07:01.

Thousands more women are to be offered the chance to save a life

:07:01.:07:04.

by donating blood from their baby's umbilical cord. Leicester's NHS

:07:04.:07:06.

hospitals have already collected over 700 donations of blood which

:07:06.:07:09.

can be used for stem cell transplants. Now the service is to

:07:09.:07:14.

be offered 24 hours a day. This little girl is at the start of her

:07:14.:07:19.

life, but she could have saved one already. That is because the blood

:07:20.:07:26.

from her umbilical cord was collected after her birth. Her

:07:26.:07:31.

mother is pregnant again and hopes to donate once again. It will be

:07:31.:07:34.

discarded as clinical waste anyway and rather than just being thrown

:07:34.:07:43.

away, you can possibly throw lives -- save lives. Years ago I had a

:07:43.:07:48.

young cousin who had leukaemia and unfortunately this kind of thing

:07:48.:07:55.

was not around then. Minutes after birth, blood is extracted from the

:07:55.:07:59.

umbilical cord that contains the stem cells. Samples can be stored

:07:59.:08:05.

for years at Nottingham Trent University. Now be less a

:08:05.:08:10.

hospital's collection service will be around the clock. We have nearly

:08:10.:08:16.

11,000 births a year. We are aiming that by about the very next year we

:08:16.:08:21.

will be doing collections from 40% of that women who deliver here.

:08:21.:08:31.
:08:31.:08:36.

this woman is living proof of how precious the blood is. She had

:08:36.:08:40.

eight success for stem cells transplant. The mother has made a

:08:40.:08:47.

tremendous decision. A small child has given me life and saved my

:08:47.:08:53.

family's life. That child is a hero. And now we can reveal that

:08:53.:08:56.

Nottingham maternity units are in talks to become collection centres

:08:56.:09:06.
:09:06.:09:17.

as well. A schoolboy has denied murdering a

:09:17.:09:20.

woman who was found dead in her burnt out home. Firefighters

:09:20.:09:22.

discovered Jacqueline Bartlam's body at Redhill in Nottinghamshire

:09:22.:09:24.

on Easter Monday. A post mortem examination found she died from

:09:24.:09:27.

head injuries. The boy who's accused of killing her was only 14

:09:27.:09:31.

at the time. He's due to stand trial in January. The University of

:09:31.:09:36.

Nottingham wants to put up three wind turbines and a blimp is being

:09:36.:09:43.

flown to illustrate how tall it will be. The structure could be as

:09:43.:09:53.
:09:53.:09:53.

high as 126 metres. Ken Clarke warned today of a feral underclass

:09:53.:09:56.

that is too big and still growing. The Justice Secretary was speaking

:09:57.:09:59.

at the Conservative Party conference about the summer riots

:09:59.:10:05.

which in Nottingham led to police stations been firebombed. Our

:10:05.:10:10.

political editor was listening to the speech. What else did Jan --

:10:10.:10:19.

Ken Clarke had to say? He battled of some sobering figures. He said

:10:19.:10:25.

each prisoner costs the taxpayer �40,000 a year and there are 80,000,

:10:25.:10:32.

which is an all-time high. So how do you reduce the prison

:10:32.:10:39.

population? Three-quarters of adults who were charged work repeat

:10:39.:10:46.

offenders. One in four of them had been convicted of 10 crimes or more

:10:46.:10:53.

already. They were real offenders, career criminals. I had a few other

:10:53.:10:58.

Troy's words for them at the time when I analysed the first results

:10:58.:11:04.

coming in. The feral underclass in this country is to be, has been

:11:04.:11:13.

growing and now needs to be diminished. -- is too big. With me

:11:13.:11:18.

now is Conservative MP and her Soubry, a former or criminal

:11:18.:11:25.

barrister. With prisons at bursting point, what do we do? We need to

:11:25.:11:31.

change the sentencing Act. Those people who could be on community

:11:31.:11:36.

sentences need to be on community orders that will rehabilitate them

:11:36.:11:40.

and punish them. And is there a feral underclass in a city like

:11:41.:11:46.

Nottingham? I feel there is. And number of my clients came from that

:11:46.:11:53.

background and it exists in other cities. It is a cliche, but it is

:11:53.:11:59.

part of that broken society. So how do we deal with those persistent

:11:59.:12:04.

offenders? There are different types of offenders. One of the

:12:04.:12:11.

things we know from the statistics emerging from the disturbances in

:12:11.:12:21.
:12:21.:12:22.

Nottingham is that we see some of those have committed offences at a

:12:22.:12:30.

lower rate. We need to get hold of them earlier in their offending

:12:30.:12:34.

behaviour. It's also about saying to people, we need to get you

:12:34.:12:39.

sorted out before you commit other crimes and by that time you are

:12:39.:12:46.

looking at several years in prison. Thank you. Tonight Kenneth Clarke

:12:46.:12:56.
:12:56.:12:56.

is that the centre of other headlines over a rift with the Home

:12:56.:13:04.

Secretary over human rights. Market Harborough without its

:13:04.:13:07.

market just wouldn't be Market Harborough, would it? But it seems

:13:07.:13:11.

that after 800 years on the same spot the market might be on the

:13:11.:13:13.

move. To save money the council is thinking about moving its

:13:13.:13:16.

headquarters to the indoor site and relocating the stallholders. As you

:13:16.:13:25.

can imagine, it's caused quite a stir.

:13:25.:13:29.

Since being granted its well charter in the 13th century, the

:13:29.:13:37.

town has enjoyed a market. But the community is not happy the council

:13:37.:13:41.

might move in. We have nothing in the town. If they take this away,

:13:41.:13:46.

they take a part of our heritage. Be it is a crazy idea. They have

:13:47.:13:54.

got good offices now, haven't they? Why spend money changing this?

:13:54.:13:58.

indoor market is owned by the council. It believes it will be

:13:58.:14:03.

cost-effective to move from its current accommodation. The council

:14:03.:14:09.

says it is reviewing its assets. With fewer stop it has double the

:14:09.:14:13.

amount of floor space it needs. It will cost �2 million to renovate

:14:13.:14:19.

the building. If we move in here we can rent out hour space in the

:14:19.:14:22.

headquarters building and that will raise a lot more income for the

:14:22.:14:30.

council and the taxpayer. How much? Probably up to half a million

:14:30.:14:35.

pounds a year. But the traders say the uncertainty is affecting

:14:35.:14:40.

business. We have not had an order for over four weeks because they

:14:40.:14:48.

will not get their extended warranty if we're not here. We have

:14:48.:14:52.

got full-time staff with mortgages and families. It is a concern.

:14:52.:14:56.

understand they have got to make cuts, everyone has, but this is the

:14:57.:15:03.

wrong place to do it. The market brings a lot of revenue into this

:15:03.:15:13.

town. A decision is expected in the middle of November. Still to come

:15:13.:15:17.

on the programme - the hunt for Britain's best baker. Could it be

:15:17.:15:26.

Leicester hope for Holly Bell. The final of the great British Baker is

:15:26.:15:31.

on BBC Two tonight and we will be speaking to Holly live in the

:15:31.:15:41.
:15:41.:15:54.

studio. Today a memorial was revealed dedicated to the miners in

:15:54.:16:00.

Bilsthorpe. This lamp is symbolic, shedding

:16:00.:16:09.

light on memories of those who lost their lives at Bilsthorpe colliery.

:16:09.:16:16.

Paul Smith knows how risky life is down the pit. He survived the last

:16:16.:16:20.

accident there in 1993. Three men died when the roof collapsed on

:16:21.:16:30.

them. It was horrific. I was trapped for three and-a-half hours.

:16:30.:16:34.

This day it reflects on the memory of those who got lost in the

:16:34.:16:44.
:16:44.:16:46.

Connery and the families who are still suffering today. Patricia's

:16:46.:16:51.

uncle died in 1927 when shafts were blooded two years after it opened.

:16:51.:16:56.

He had come over from Ireland as a teenager, technically too young to

:16:56.:17:01.

mind. Quite a few of them had to lie to get a job down the pit and

:17:01.:17:08.

we think this is what happened to him. It was a great tragedy for the

:17:08.:17:18.
:17:18.:17:20.

family and this village. There would not have been a village if it

:17:20.:17:28.

had not been for the pit, so how can they be get it? They have not.

:17:28.:17:31.

Today's Memorial was designed by primary school children, a sign

:17:31.:17:35.

that future generations don't plan to forget the price paid in the

:17:36.:17:45.
:17:46.:17:53.

past. Time now for the sport. We're starting with the chaos at

:17:53.:17:55.

Nottingham Forest and another extraordinary moment. As they hunt

:17:55.:17:59.

for a new manager, we had two senior players get in touch with us

:17:59.:18:02.

today. They don't want to be named, but they did tell us that the

:18:02.:18:05.

majority of the squad would like Billy Davies back. They claimed

:18:05.:18:08.

that that point of view was almost universal among those who played

:18:08.:18:11.

under Billy. This afternoon I took the chance to work out what was

:18:11.:18:18.

going on, in the company of a former Forest striker.

:18:18.:18:28.
:18:28.:18:32.

It is the place for speculation, Twitter. It's amazing the players

:18:32.:18:36.

would get the media involved? were happy with Billy, he got the

:18:36.:18:41.

best out of the players. I am sure he is available and the players

:18:41.:18:51.
:18:51.:18:57.

would love him to come back. other big thing is this idea of a

:18:57.:19:04.

technical director and a first team coach. Can you see that? It works

:19:04.:19:09.

at other clubs abroad and Nottingham Forest is a big club,

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

well supported. A lot of players have moved on and become managers.

:19:20.:19:25.

It seems to work on the Continent, but fails here. People seem to fall

:19:25.:19:29.

out. It would be able to work at Nottingham Forest, they just need

:19:29.:19:33.

to get the right people in charge, the right technical director of

:19:34.:19:42.

football and it will work. Who do you think would be ideal? Frank

:19:42.:19:47.

Clark would be good, but if the manager isn't right and he doesn't

:19:47.:19:53.

get on with the director of football, it will not work. Time

:19:53.:19:57.

pressure is on to get this done. There are good managers out there,

:19:57.:20:01.

but they have to get their technical director in first and

:20:01.:20:06.

then the manager. David Johnson speaking to me earlier.

:20:06.:20:09.

Now, news from Notts County - the new contract for Lee Hughes that

:20:09.:20:13.

Martin Allen talked about the other day has been signed. 18 months with

:20:13.:20:16.

the option for another year for the striker. They have got a game

:20:16.:20:19.

tonight as well. You can get live BBC Radio Nottingham commentary on

:20:19.:20:21.

Notts County's Johnstones Paint Trophy clash with Chesterfield from

:20:21.:20:28.

seven o'clock. At the Rugby World Cup the

:20:28.:20:30.

Leicester Tigers player Manu Tuilagi has been fined for wearing

:20:31.:20:33.

a gumshield showing a sponsor's logo, a week after his brother

:20:33.:20:39.

Alesana was fined for the same offence. Manu was fined 10,000 New

:20:39.:20:40.

Zealand dollars by the International Rugby Board for

:20:40.:20:49.

wearing the gumshield during England's pool game with Georgia.

:20:49.:20:57.

All the things that have happened bring us tighter it together as a

:20:57.:21:05.

team and a Scot. Sometimes bad things are good. Rules are rules

:21:05.:21:12.

and you have to follow them. They are quite strict on how they want

:21:12.:21:19.

things done. $10,000 for wearing the same -- wrong gumshield?! Just

:21:19.:21:22.

imagine if you did something really bad.

:21:22.:21:26.

Now, a reminder that it's the time of year when we ask for you to

:21:26.:21:29.

nominate your Sports Unsung Hero. We want someone from the East

:21:29.:21:32.

Midlands who helps others take part in sport. Someone who goes that

:21:32.:21:37.

extra mile to make a big difference. The awards recognise people like

:21:37.:21:41.

hour 2011 winner who has spent 43 years developing net ball in their

:21:42.:21:51.

region. -- netball in the region. We are also looking for people like

:21:51.:21:55.

John, who has run community football. It doesn't matter which

:21:55.:21:59.

sport they are involved in, we just want to hear about the people who

:21:59.:22:09.
:22:09.:22:28.

go that extra mile way you live. Get your nominations in as soon as

:22:28.:22:38.

you can. Now, the BBC's Great British Bake

:22:38.:22:44.

Off. Tonight is the grand final. Just three top bakers are left to

:22:44.:22:49.

battle it out for the title. One of them is our guest in the studio.

:22:49.:22:54.

Before we meet her, let us have a look at her in action, coming to

:22:54.:23:01.

grips with the infamous Genoese sponge. Holly is struggling to

:23:01.:23:04.

create the necessary for a meat texture. I do not know what has

:23:04.:23:11.

happened there. It is terrible. I could have got away with that in

:23:11.:23:17.

week one, but not in weeks seven. I would love to be in the final.

:23:17.:23:23.

Holly is with us and you have made it. You are in the final tonight.

:23:23.:23:27.

know. Who would have bought it? have seen some of the things you

:23:27.:23:33.

have made and I am not surprised you are there. That is something

:23:33.:23:38.

coming from you because you can bake. My mother used to work on a

:23:38.:23:42.

biscuit store and she has never touched one since. His River Seine

:23:42.:23:49.

with cakes? In our house, I think we are sick of bait goods. I have

:23:49.:23:54.

to practise. They were literally hundreds of all sorts of things

:23:54.:24:02.

coming out of the kitchen. I approach it like a job. This is

:24:02.:24:08.

what I am going to do for the next six weeks whilst we are filming, so

:24:08.:24:12.

I thought I'd just needed to keep practising. It was like homework

:24:12.:24:17.

and for me, it was the only way to do it. Do you think some people

:24:17.:24:27.
:24:27.:24:32.

just turned up and did it on the spot. Some of them did. There was a

:24:33.:24:38.

lot of pressure. It has to be good television, so how much of it is

:24:38.:24:43.

produced and what is real? It was jolly at the start because there

:24:43.:24:47.

are top of you and the pressure is less because there is less chance

:24:47.:24:54.

of you going home, actually. But as it carried on, you are more

:24:54.:24:59.

invested in it and you want a bit more. And it is building up to the

:24:59.:25:09.
:25:09.:25:21.

Are you going to be watching tonight? I am. Fingers crossed. And

:25:21.:25:26.

now for the weather. Well, Alton has returned. It is quite chilly

:25:26.:25:36.
:25:36.:25:37.

down here. -- autumn has returned. Today, 17 Celsius. Ten degrees

:25:37.:25:42.

below what we had yesterday. Wednesday is going to be rather

:25:42.:25:47.
