This is East Midlands Today. Out of story, the deaf in prison and a

:00:10.:00:15.

child killer. Paul Hutchins and was serving life for the murder of

:00:15.:00:23.

schoolgirl Collete Arram. A breakthrough on breast cancer.

:00:23.:00:32.

was like a eureka moment. It was quite exciting. Find out why the

:00:32.:00:35.

residents of this day 10 -- residents of this day centre might

:00:35.:00:41.

actually be good. Fund or frightening? With only one week to

:00:41.:00:51.
:00:51.:00:56.

Hallowe'en, would you answer the A very good evening to you, welcome

:00:56.:01:02.

to the programme. The notorious killer found dead in his prison

:01:02.:01:09.

cell after his wife decided to divorce him. 52-year-old Paul

:01:09.:01:11.

Hutchison was beginning a life sentence for the murder of Collete

:01:12.:01:21.
:01:22.:01:24.

Arram. Our correspondent has followed the inquest. This council

:01:24.:01:28.

chamber became as a courtroom today, with a jury sitting over here, and

:01:28.:01:33.

watching. There were relatives of a killer, and relatives of a victim.

:01:33.:01:38.

It goes back to a crime almost or three decades ago. The body of

:01:38.:01:43.

Collette Aaron was found in a field near her home in Keyworth. It was

:01:43.:01:51.

almost 17 years since -- until Paul Hutchison was captured. The

:01:51.:01:57.

evidence heard here that he became depressed because his divorce

:01:57.:02:01.

papers came through. He asked his wife to come to prison so you could

:02:01.:02:04.

say goodbye. That visit was cancelled, he was found dead the

:02:04.:02:10.

next day. So how did he die? Essentially it was an overdose of

:02:10.:02:17.

prescription drugs. They found almost twice the legal dose of

:02:17.:02:22.

anti-depressants in his bloodstream. That prompted a lot of questioning

:02:22.:02:26.

about whether he should have those drugs. The staff at Nottingham

:02:26.:02:31.

prison decided it was safe to give up him his medication in seven day

:02:31.:02:35.

box-set. That was despite the fact he was on suicide watch, and he was

:02:35.:02:42.

previously caught holding dozens of pills in a sock. The deputy coroner

:02:42.:02:45.

said that his conviction was not relevant to the care that he had

:02:45.:02:52.

been entitled to. Tomorrow the jury will be back here to decide what is

:02:52.:02:55.

to be made of all this. Thank you very much.

:02:55.:03:00.

Residents and friends are they Derby Day Care Centre took their

:03:00.:03:05.

protest to the city council offices today. They handed in a 650 strong

:03:05.:03:11.

petition in the hope that the plans to close Whitaker Day Centre may be

:03:11.:03:17.

reconsidered. For 73-year-old John Wallace, the

:03:17.:03:21.

Whitaker Day Centre is more than just a service. In his words, he

:03:21.:03:27.

wakes up in his house, and then he comes home. When I come here I get

:03:27.:03:34.

made very welcome. The atmosphere when you walk in here is beautiful.

:03:34.:03:40.

For him and the people that use the centre, they may be forced to look

:03:40.:03:44.

elsewhere. The council wants to move it to a day centre or another

:03:44.:03:50.

street. The council says the number of people abusing both centres is

:03:50.:03:55.

decline, the savings could be as much as �300,000. It is a saving

:03:55.:04:00.

that is opposed by the Labour group. They handed in a petition to the

:04:00.:04:04.

city council. We do not agree with this proposal to close Whitaker Day

:04:04.:04:14.

Centre. Most of the service users are in their late Eighties and 90s.

:04:14.:04:20.

We are very disappointed that they are not listening. Earlier this

:04:20.:04:24.

year the city council designed personal budgets enabling lb people

:04:24.:04:28.

to stay at home for longer. The council saying -- the council says

:04:28.:04:34.

that getting people out of their homes is important. I was they were

:04:34.:04:43.

ramifies closes. My doctor would not like that. -- if this closes. I

:04:43.:04:48.

may try and take my own life again. The council says that if the plans

:04:48.:04:53.

to close the centre go-ahead, all these services will be still on

:04:53.:05:03.
:05:03.:05:05.

offer, that at a different location. Medical experts have done research

:05:05.:05:10.

to see whether drugs can reduce the chance of breast cancer. The team

:05:10.:05:16.

at the Queen's Medical Centre have shown that it is possible taking

:05:16.:05:20.

beta-blockers. We will be marking breast cancer awareness month with

:05:20.:05:29.

a special report. We look at how this research could save lives.

:05:29.:05:36.

It is this drug which is a beta- blocker that researchers here are

:05:36.:05:42.

most interested in. It is used sometimes to treat anxiety, their

:05:42.:05:48.

research says it could help in the fight against cancer. At the

:05:48.:05:51.

Queen's Medical Centre this expert saw that patients taking beta-

:05:51.:05:55.

blockers were less likely to develop secondary cancer. They were

:05:55.:06:02.

more likely to survive. He analysed thousands of patients results.

:06:02.:06:06.

sit down and do the statistics, it was like a way you -- it was like a

:06:06.:06:13.

eureka moment. It was quite exciting. Women given beta-blockers

:06:13.:06:18.

had a fewer secondary cancers. They live longer. In the first study the

:06:18.:06:25.

records show that 466 patients who took beta-blockers saw a 76%

:06:25.:06:30.

reduction in death rates. The plan is now to look up to -- the plan is

:06:30.:06:37.

to now look at two 40,000 cases. The research has been welcomed by

:06:37.:06:42.

this campaign in Derbyshire. She is the first women the wake it -- in

:06:42.:06:46.

the UK to have a visit to the sector middles she runs a national

:06:46.:06:54.

helpline. Breast cancer the women, it is their biggest fear. This will

:06:54.:07:00.

help give treatment for a lot of people. Anything caught at an early

:07:00.:07:07.

stage will be helpful. They could be a clinical trial next year.

:07:07.:07:11.

In other news, a man has admitted causing death by dangerous driving

:07:11.:07:17.

following a crash on the A46 this month. Two cars and a lorry were

:07:17.:07:22.

involved in the collision in the work. Martin Casey has pleaded

:07:22.:07:28.

guilty to the charges. He has been remanded in custody. Sentencing is

:07:28.:07:31.

next week. Three people in Derbyshire had been

:07:31.:07:36.

charged as parties they -- as part of a police crackdown on fuel theft.

:07:36.:07:40.

It follows a series of incidents where drivers have build up their

:07:40.:07:45.

cars and driven away about paying. The number of so-called dry bobs

:07:45.:07:50.

has increased by a quarter. You are watching East Midlands Today.

:07:50.:07:55.

He was tortured and murdered in his own home in a quite Lincolnshire

:07:55.:08:00.

visage -- village. It has been two years is the killing of Alan Wood.

:08:00.:08:05.

Police are searching for new information. There have been a

:08:05.:08:11.

handful of arrests, a DNA profile, and CCTV footage. No charges have -

:08:11.:08:17.

may no charges have been brought. Described as gentle, kind and well-

:08:17.:08:24.

liked, it is two a year since 52- year-old Allen would was murdered.

:08:24.:08:29.

-- Alan Wood was murdered. He was bound and Tait, and suffered

:08:29.:08:34.

repeating to knife wins. They have the attempt made to decapitate him.

:08:34.:08:38.

They have done this Jerez -- horrific thing. They are walking

:08:38.:08:46.

around. What else are they going to do? They could add not have done

:08:46.:08:51.

this without having done something before. They tortured someone in

:08:51.:08:55.

their own home for a few hundred pounds. It is completely

:08:55.:09:01.

bewildering. Police released CCTV pictures that show a suspect using

:09:01.:09:07.

his credit card to withdraw money in Stamford. Despite an appeal on

:09:07.:09:14.

the BBC earlier this year, the case remains unsolved. At this incident

:09:14.:09:18.

room, more than 10 detectives are working full-time on the

:09:18.:09:22.

investigation. They have collected almost 3,000 pieces of evidence,

:09:22.:09:28.

and investigated 16,000 possible suspect both in the UK, and abroad.

:09:28.:09:31.

This is one of the biggest investigations we have ever carried

:09:31.:09:36.

out. Thousands upon thousands of staff hours have been used. We have

:09:36.:09:44.

lobbied details of almost 60,000 people. 16,000 telephones, a huge

:09:44.:09:48.

investigation over here, and elsewhere. Police are urging anyone

:09:48.:09:53.

who has information to contact them. They are adamant that this case

:09:53.:10:03.

remains very much open. Creeper residents from

:10:03.:10:07.

Nottinghamshire may have to spend a second night away from their homes

:10:07.:10:12.

because they fear of exploding gas cylinders. They became CB heated in

:10:12.:10:17.

a fire in the early hours. It meant a rude awakening for the people of

:10:18.:10:24.

Selston, they were taken to the emergency centre for their safety.

:10:24.:10:28.

Fire officers have been keeping a close eye on the gas cylinders,

:10:28.:10:33.

after they were heated by a fire on some outbuildings. We could not go

:10:33.:10:37.

within 200 yards of the cylinders, they were being sprayed to prevent

:10:37.:10:43.

an exploding. We are taking regular temperature readings, so they'd be

:10:43.:10:47.

can monitor the status. We have a thermal in it -- thermal imaging

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:10:58.

camera. Families were evacuated at 2am. This woman spotted the blaze.

:10:58.:11:01.

I bought a neighbour's kitchen was on fire. When I actually looked, it

:11:01.:11:07.

was a garden shed. My husband said ring in 999, I did that, and left

:11:07.:11:13.

the house. The exclusion zone meant traffic into Selston was diverted.

:11:13.:11:20.

The authorities were prepared for a 24 hour cooling. What we have got

:11:20.:11:25.

to do is look at hotel accommodation if necessary. We were

:11:25.:11:31.

the cat bringing food to people, they will remain comfortable here.

:11:31.:11:35.

Despite the exclusion Grote -- exclusion zone been reduced, some

:11:35.:11:41.

residents have gone to hotels for the night. It will continue until 2

:11:41.:11:48.

am this morning. For thousands of youngsters, it is

:11:48.:11:54.

a night of fun, a night to dress up. There are some people Halim, along

:11:54.:12:00.

with trick or treating can be a frightening experience. A new

:12:00.:12:06.

poster campaign hopes that they will be fewer nasty surprises.

:12:06.:12:13.

For these two it is their first time trick or treating. They are

:12:13.:12:19.

two years old. They are more sweet and scary. Here is a slightly

:12:19.:12:28.

different situation. Would you answer the door to these two? This

:12:28.:12:33.

Hallowe'en, with help from a new poster, Cliff is hoping that

:12:33.:12:38.

trickled treatise will stay away. It is worrying with young teenagers

:12:38.:12:44.

coming in. They go over the top. They throw stones at the window. We

:12:44.:12:49.

have a spree of the window. We have had incidents of people having

:12:49.:12:52.

fireworks per pre-let the box. I'm sure the young people do not

:12:52.:12:58.

realise how tragic, and how worried they can make the old people feel.

:12:58.:13:02.

Last year Leicestershire police received hundreds of calls from

:13:02.:13:07.

members of the public. Often the cause is a great deal of upset,

:13:07.:13:15.

people want to cower and hide behind their lines. -- blinds. If

:13:15.:13:19.

someone has his poster in the window, we asked people to respect

:13:19.:13:25.

that. Youngsters do not worry me, that young teenagers do. I think,

:13:25.:13:31.

are they going to do anything nasty? Will they try any injured

:13:31.:13:37.

knee. If they behave themselves, it is all right. Are they going to

:13:37.:13:40.

behave themselves? If there is a problem, we are being urged to call

:13:40.:13:45.

the police. Officers are hoping that trick or treaters will take

:13:45.:13:55.

notice of the posters, or else the Still to come on the programme: A

:13:55.:13:57.

vivid description from schoolchildren. But of WHAT

:13:57.:14:07.
:14:07.:14:09.

exactly? And the trees, and then he tried to find this were all!

:14:09.:14:18.

A survey released today suggests nearly two-thirds of sixth formers

:14:18.:14:23.

would consider an apprenticeship as an alternative to a degree. The

:14:23.:14:25.

survey was commissioned by BBC Inside Out to test the likely

:14:25.:14:30.

impact of the tripling of university tuition fees next year.

:14:30.:14:33.

Tonight Marie Ashby follows 17- year-old Tom James as he tries to

:14:33.:14:39.

decide between going to university and an apprenticeship in accounting.

:14:39.:14:42.

And you can find out what Tom decides on Inside Out tonight at

:14:42.:14:49.

7:30 on BBC One. What we're doing this week is continuing with the

:14:49.:14:54.

personal statements. At this college in Nottingham, most of

:14:54.:14:57.

Tom's friends are filling in their application forms. He wants to

:14:57.:15:02.

study accounting, so will a university degree guarantee him a

:15:02.:15:07.

job? The published figures show 40% of students who studied accounting

:15:07.:15:11.

at demand for it went on to graduate level employment, compared

:15:11.:15:17.

to 90% at Loughborough University. What is everyone around you telling

:15:17.:15:20.

you to do? Everyone is telling me to get University, because

:15:20.:15:26.

everybody thinks I am quite clever. I don't think they know too much

:15:26.:15:30.

about the whole tuition fees, the extent of it. It is unbelievable,

:15:30.:15:34.

the amount of stress it is causing for student at this time, they have

:15:34.:15:40.

really never have to think so much about it, not only if they are

:15:40.:15:44.

going to university, which university, but what are the other

:15:44.:15:51.

options. So, Tom is trying an alternative. He has given a part of

:15:51.:15:55.

his summer holiday to attend a four-day taster course in

:15:55.:16:03.

accounting,. It is definitely helping. I have always been quite

:16:03.:16:07.

narrow-minded, I always wanted to be an accountant, go into business.

:16:07.:16:14.

This has strengthened my view. take on the dead they had to take

:16:14.:16:18.

on the Good University, it will cost them over �100,000 to pay it

:16:18.:16:23.

back. You're not going to take any of that debt on if you start

:16:23.:16:33.
:16:33.:16:36.

earning. You can find out what he decides, tonight at 7:30pm. Lots of

:16:36.:16:42.

activity, all of a sudden, and the sports office. It was a fairly

:16:42.:16:45.

normal Monday, then we have at some breaking news, it is beginning to

:16:45.:16:49.

look as if Sven Goran Eriksson might have left Leicester City. It

:16:49.:16:54.

follows that the 3-0 home defeat to Millwall, which left fans booing

:16:54.:17:02.

the team. What do we know? Lots of rumours in the last hour.

:17:02.:17:06.

Unconfirmed by both the club, and by Sven Goran Eriksson himself, but

:17:06.:17:11.

we are led to believe that he has left Leicester City this evening.

:17:11.:17:15.

He is meeting with the chairman at the Walkers Stadium, and his

:17:15.:17:19.

performance against Millwall at the weekend, when they lost 3-0,

:17:19.:17:23.

appears to have been the final straw. Sven Goran Eriksson, after

:17:23.:17:28.

just over 12 months in charge, becomes the second former England

:17:28.:17:33.

manager inside a fortnight to lose their job at an East Midlands club.

:17:33.:17:37.

What has his record a bit like? has been mixed, and that has been

:17:37.:17:41.

the problem. The owners want promotion to stop the have made an

:17:41.:17:48.

awful lot of money available, about �10 million. They beat Derby County

:17:48.:17:56.

4-0, but also some aloes of. He has won 24 out of 55, but of the last

:17:56.:17:59.

27 games, only nine winter. They were going backwards on Saturday,

:18:00.:18:04.

and it seems to have been the final straw for the Leicester City owners.

:18:04.:18:09.

We understand he will be confirmed as an ex-manager of Leicester City

:18:09.:18:14.

within the next hour or so. First, what a difference a week

:18:14.:18:16.

makes in football. Last Monday, Nottingham Forest boss Steve

:18:16.:18:19.

Cotterill had only just been appointed. But in just seven days,

:18:19.:18:25.

he's worked some sort of magic. Two games, two wins - the perfect start.

:18:25.:18:28.

So this afternoon Natalie got the Tactics Truck out of the garage to

:18:28.:18:38.
:18:38.:18:43.

find out what's changed at the City Well, there is certainly a

:18:43.:18:48.

different atmosphere around the training ground here today. Their

:18:48.:18:52.

goalkeeper says their team have their mojos are back, and that is

:18:52.:18:57.

down to their new manager. He says the new Steve has been totally

:18:57.:19:05.

supportive to the back four, unlike the old Steve. I think there was a

:19:05.:19:10.

perception around the old manager, I think myself, Chambers, we all

:19:10.:19:16.

came under a bit of criticism. I think behind the scenes as well,

:19:16.:19:24.

which was a bit unjust. A little bit unfair as well. For somebody to

:19:24.:19:29.

criticise them, I find it hard to criticise him, because he always

:19:29.:19:34.

gives you everything he has got. he was delighted to see centre-back

:19:34.:19:40.

Wes Morgan score the first goal on Saturday. It was a great ball in by

:19:40.:19:45.

Lewis. He is up early, it is a great header. That was the area we

:19:45.:19:51.

were looking to hit. But Kevin Phillips soon got an equaliser.

:19:51.:19:56.

shot crept in under my hands, I am a bit disappointed by it, but

:19:57.:20:03.

thankfully, he digs me out a bit! Yes, Radoslaw Majewski's goal was a

:20:03.:20:10.

beauty. So they won 2-1, even with 10 men, for the new manager. He is

:20:10.:20:14.

enthusiastic, full of beans, there is don't negativity, everything is

:20:14.:20:19.

positive. At the minute, it is a good environment to come in and

:20:19.:20:25.

work in. I wouldn't say it in a didn't believe it, I think he will

:20:25.:20:33.

Where Forest were delighted, Derby were left frustrated, and Leicester

:20:33.:20:38.

shocked by the way the weekend worked out.

:20:39.:20:45.

His name is Mason Bennett, he is 15, and the youngest ever Derby player.

:20:45.:20:48.

During the game against Middlesbrough, he forced a really

:20:48.:20:55.

smart near-post save, and more spectacularly, hit the bar. I think

:20:55.:21:01.

it was a good debut. If he had been 22 and played like that, you would

:21:01.:21:06.

have said, that is OK, but to do it at 15, very encouraging. We are

:21:06.:21:10.

very excited about his future. fact that Ben Knight couldn't quite

:21:10.:21:18.

caught summed up Derby's day. They will play worse than this and win.

:21:18.:21:23.

Derby and their fans never gave up. The final tally showed they hit the

:21:23.:21:33.

woodwork and astonishing four times. The goal just never came.

:21:33.:21:36.

In League One there was a bizarre incident at Notts County, which saw

:21:36.:21:39.

Brentford's manager get sent off. It should have been a simple free

:21:39.:21:44.

kick, but just watch Brentford manager Uwe Rosler, as Brentford

:21:44.:21:50.

attempt to take it. Protestations of innocence, tempers flaring. More

:21:50.:21:54.

playground than touchline. But he was sent to the naughty corner,

:21:54.:21:58.

forced to watch the game away from the dug-out, safely seated in the

:21:58.:22:05.

stands. I studied my technical area, I stood still. -- stood in my take

:22:05.:22:09.

the goal area. The person who did the free-kick was probably not very

:22:09.:22:14.

happy, but I was a bit. I have done this sort of thing in the past,

:22:14.:22:17.

perhaps the ref could have said, don't do it again to stop a bit

:22:17.:22:26.

harsh, really. Uwe Rosler's frustrations grew. But honours were

:22:26.:22:31.

even went just 10 seconds into the second half, Bradford equalised to

:22:31.:22:39.

leave the feisty game with a final score of 1-1.

:22:39.:22:41.

In ice hockey Nottingham Panthers have booked their place in the

:22:41.:22:44.

Challenge Cup semi-final - and they did it by crushing old rivals

:22:44.:22:47.

Sheffield. In front of a packed arena, Brandon Benedict and Marc

:22:47.:22:51.

Levers both found in the net in the second period - goals which put

:22:51.:22:54.

Panthers well in control of the match. In the end, Sheffield had to

:22:54.:22:57.

pull their goaltender to try and avoid being shut out - and that

:22:57.:23:03.

left the empty net at Matthew Myers' mercy. An excellent win.

:23:03.:23:07.

That was Saturday. Not quite so good yesterday - a 4-3 defeat at

:23:07.:23:13.
