This is East Midlands Today with Anne Davies and me, Dominic Heale.

:00:06.:00:08.

Our top story tonight: A council relents after sending a

:00:08.:00:18.

bill for grave maintenance to the mother of a dead soldier. Teresa

:00:18.:00:24.

would son was killed two years ago fighting in Afghanistan. Absolutely

:00:24.:00:28.

horrified they would charge for a fallen soldier. He gave his life

:00:28.:00:35.

for this country and he should have had that.

:00:35.:00:38.

Also, gang members handing knives after getting a letter from the

:00:38.:00:43.

police. Plus, the three warning signs of a

:00:43.:00:50.

stroke. Is there speech slurred? But, are two other symptoms being a

:00:50.:00:52.

overlooked? This Christmas very is more than 80

:00:52.:00:57.

years old but is the oldest decoration in the whole East

:00:57.:01:05.

Midlands? -- it this Christmas fairy.

:01:05.:01:08.

Good evening. First tonight, the mother of a fallen soldier has

:01:08.:01:11.

forced a council to withdraw a bill for hundreds of pounds to maintain

:01:11.:01:16.

her son's grave. Teresa Woods is now urging all councils to drop

:01:16.:01:20.

cemetery bills for soldiers killed in action. Tonight, Downing Street

:01:20.:01:30.
:01:30.:01:31.

told us it's pleased the council's relented. Helen Astle reports.

:01:31.:01:37.

Corporal Marcin Wojtak, a corporal in the RAF, he died in 2009 whilst

:01:37.:01:42.

serving in Afghanistan. He was 24 years old. He isn't buried in

:01:42.:01:46.

Melton Mowbray and the family chose not have a smaller military

:01:46.:01:50.

headstone, which would not have incurred military charges, because

:01:50.:01:53.

they wanted to list his tours of duty so everyone could see where he

:01:53.:01:59.

had so it. He said to me, if I ever die in Afghanistan, will people

:01:59.:02:04.

remember me? And I promised him that he would be totally remembered

:02:04.:02:09.

and I would do everything in my power. And this is my -- one of my

:02:09.:02:14.

last things I could do for him. family received a bill totalling

:02:14.:02:18.

�458, a one-off charge for maintenance fees at the ceremony --

:02:18.:02:25.

cemetery. Absolutely horrified they would charge for a fallen soldier.

:02:25.:02:30.

I mean, he gave his life for this country and he should have had that

:02:30.:02:34.

completely free. To research is calling for cemetery fees for all

:02:34.:02:42.

service personnel to be waived. said to David Cameron, make sure

:02:42.:02:47.

that all council officers actually wave every single charge and have a

:02:47.:02:52.

set policy for military families. Of those boys do an extremely

:02:52.:02:55.

important job and this is the last thing you can do for these families,

:02:55.:03:00.

not give them the hassle we are having to go through, and not have

:03:00.:03:05.

to battle, and he can do that by just sending an e-mail to all the

:03:05.:03:10.

council officers and say, weighed every single charge. A drop done.

:03:10.:03:15.

Today, the family met the leader of the council, the council that

:03:15.:03:20.

originally built her. You shouldn't have to be battling for the rights

:03:20.:03:26.

of your son. It wasn't picked up earlier and I am sorry. The policy

:03:26.:03:33.

is there, and I am responsible for the fact it wasn't picked up

:03:33.:03:37.

earlier. As soon as it was spotted, we rectified the situation.

:03:37.:03:44.

Downing Street spokesman said, we welcome the decision to not charge

:03:44.:03:50.

Theresa Woods. Teresa is now going to donate �458 to the Royal British

:03:50.:03:53.

Legion. A little earlier I spoke to Patrick

:03:53.:03:56.

Mercer MP, a former army officer, who agreed with the council's

:03:56.:04:05.

decision to waive the fee. Yes, I do. I think this is sensible.

:04:05.:04:11.

It is not a unique case but it is a most unusual case. And I think the

:04:11.:04:15.

council have acted with great foresight and sensitive that the.

:04:15.:04:20.

Do you think there should be a national policy in regards to this?

:04:20.:04:25.

I don't. I don't think this is something for national government.

:04:25.:04:29.

When these cases come up, they need to be dealt with on their own

:04:29.:04:34.

merits and not... There is not one piece of legislation that will fit

:04:34.:04:40.

all of this. What I would say is the council involved has set a very

:04:40.:04:47.

good example to follow. Is there a concern, where do you draw the

:04:47.:04:50.

line? There were other people that give up their lives for this

:04:50.:04:56.

country, not necessary soldiers. course of their Ara, but I think

:04:56.:05:00.

the armed forces who volunteered to put themselves in danger and to

:05:00.:05:04.

accept death as part of the contract, I do think a special case

:05:05.:05:10.

can be made for them. That is not to say that police officers,

:05:10.:05:15.

firemen etc, all of them of course should be respected and honoured,

:05:15.:05:20.

and neither of this category is go out to seek battle, as soldiers,

:05:20.:05:25.

and airmen. Thank you. A man who almost died after being

:05:25.:05:28.

stabbed has called on the courts to hand out tougher sentences for

:05:28.:05:32.

those who carry knives. New figures show that fewer people are being

:05:32.:05:36.

jailed for possessing an offensive weapon. And as Simon Hare reports,

:05:36.:05:39.

the police in Derby have just recovered almost 500 knives during

:05:39.:05:49.

a month-long amnesty. Off the streets and out of harm's

:05:49.:05:56.

way. Police show of the 483 weapons including swords and machete is

:05:56.:06:01.

recovered by operation Jagger. It is twice as many as the total

:06:01.:06:07.

recovered during a similar amnesty to make years ago. -- two years ago.

:06:07.:06:11.

This man knows more than most about the threat of a knife crime. He

:06:11.:06:15.

almost died after being stabbed. He had been a bouncer at this pub when

:06:16.:06:21.

he was attacked by a man he had earlier turned away. 500 knives is

:06:21.:06:26.

a good result but it is the wrong people that are handing these notes

:06:26.:06:31.

in. These are young people that are displaying these knives above the

:06:31.:06:36.

fireplaces. The actually -- the low-life scumbags, the ones that

:06:36.:06:41.

need to be target, the ones that carry knives, because it is part of

:06:41.:06:45.

their lives, need to be target it. Some of the home-made knives did

:06:45.:06:51.

have a sinister purpose. They are used to create violence or injury

:06:51.:06:55.

to people and I would say to people that if you have got them, there is

:06:55.:07:00.

no excuse to have this on your person or in your house, because

:07:00.:07:07.

what would you use them for? They use is for crime and crime and loan.

:07:07.:07:11.

New figures show that the proportion of people jailed for

:07:11.:07:16.

carrying a knife has fallen to its lowest level for almost three years.

:07:16.:07:22.

Just over a 5th of those convicted of possessing a knife or presents

:07:22.:07:28.

if -- offensive weapon went to prison. People need to get bigger

:07:28.:07:32.

sentences. It is out of control at the moment.

:07:32.:07:35.

A paramedic caught breathing in gas and air while on duty for East

:07:35.:07:38.

Midlands Ambulance Service has been suspended for a year by the Health

:07:38.:07:42.

Professionals Council. Nigel Moore, who was based in Derbyshire, was

:07:42.:07:44.

seen using the anaesthetic gas, Entonox, in a fast response vehicle

:07:44.:07:50.

last September. He told the hearing he'd taken to the gas to relieve

:07:50.:07:55.

stress. Moore resigned from the service earlier this year. East

:07:55.:08:00.

Midlands Ambulance Service declined to comment.

:08:00.:08:03.

Six people have been arrested following a protest at a proposed

:08:03.:08:05.

nuclear waste site near Stamford. Plans to put low level radioactive

:08:05.:08:08.

waste at the Kings Cliffe landfill site were given the go-ahead

:08:08.:08:12.

earlier this year. This morning more than 20 demonstrators gathered

:08:12.:08:17.

there. Police then moved in to disperse them. Several protestors

:08:17.:08:20.

had to be cut free after chaining themselves to concrete-filled

:08:20.:08:23.

barrels. Leicestershire Police say a non-

:08:24.:08:27.

emergency number introduced last month is already being widely used.

:08:27.:08:30.

The 101 telephone number is designed to make it easier for

:08:30.:08:33.

people to report minor crimes and discuss non-urgent matters. The

:08:33.:08:36.

service is currently dealing with around a fifth of all non-emergency

:08:36.:08:43.

calls. Officers expect that figure to rise.

:08:43.:08:46.

Medical researchers in the East Midlands have discovered many

:08:46.:08:48.

people don't know all the key warning symptoms of a stroke,

:08:48.:08:53.

Britain's third biggest killer. A Government advertising campaign has

:08:53.:08:56.

increased knowledge of three signs to look out for, but there are

:08:56.:09:01.

others that people just don't seem to be aware of. Our Health

:09:01.:09:09.

Correspondent Rob Sissons has more details.

:09:09.:09:12.

At the Leicester Royal Infirmary, they have done research into what

:09:12.:09:17.

people know about strokes. They have found there are two classics

:09:17.:09:21.

this -- symptoms that a lot of people don't know about. Frank had

:09:21.:09:26.

one of them but the 71-year-old ignored temporary loss of vision

:09:26.:09:29.

until he was taken into hospital with abdominal pains, and further

:09:29.:09:35.

tests revealed a narrowed artery causing sight problems, a site of

:09:35.:09:39.

many strokes for its doublet was that intermittent and short-lived,

:09:39.:09:45.

it was a matter of split seconds that your eyesight was distorted.

:09:45.:09:50.

Sometimes you thought, have I imagined it? Loss of vision is like

:09:50.:09:55.

a shutter coming down and lifting again. It can be a single episode

:09:55.:10:00.

or multiple. This professor says it is not just loss of vision that is

:10:00.:10:08.

a warning sign. Weakness in the leg. I don't mean pain it or pins and

:10:08.:10:14.

needles. All this sudden, you cannot wait bear on one of your

:10:14.:10:20.

legs, your leg comes out the way. This at campaign seems to have

:10:20.:10:25.

raised awareness of classic symptoms. There is also increasing

:10:25.:10:29.

understanding not only among patients but also the NHS of other

:10:29.:10:34.

warning signs. The East Midlands Ambulance Service did not triage

:10:34.:10:39.

patience as -- with leg weakness as patience that would have had

:10:39.:10:44.

strokes. They have now changed ambulance control and publicity,

:10:44.:10:50.

and people with leg weaknesses may be treated as having had a strict.

:10:50.:10:54.

Picking up minor symptoms could prevent a major stroke later.

:10:54.:10:58.

Officials in the Peak Park say they want to spend extra money trying to

:10:58.:11:01.

boost local jobs despite having to make massive budget cuts. The Peak

:11:01.:11:04.

District National Park Authority has to save almost �2 million over

:11:04.:11:08.

four years. But it says it'll still spend �440,000 creating 50

:11:08.:11:10.

apprenticeships across the area, protecting planning jobs, and

:11:10.:11:17.

employing a business advisor for small firms.

:11:17.:11:20.

A survey of the Derby Hippodrome has found that it hasn't been

:11:20.:11:23.

seriously affected by last weekend's fire. Firefighters were

:11:23.:11:26.

called to the Grade II listed building in the early hours of

:11:26.:11:30.

Saturday morning. The site had been left derelict after being badly

:11:30.:11:33.

damaged three years ago. A structural survey says that no real

:11:33.:11:40.

concerns have been raised about the building's stability.

:11:40.:11:43.

Next year's Summer Sundae music festival in Leicester will be

:11:43.:11:46.

taking place a week later. It's been put back because of the London

:11:46.:11:50.

Olympics. The three-day festival at de Montfort Hall will now take

:11:50.:11:55.

place from 17th-19th August. Last year, it attracted more than 7,000

:11:55.:12:04.

people. Make a note of it in your diary.

:12:04.:12:10.

I think that is called a boutique festival - small but perfectly

:12:10.:12:14.

formed, rather like you. I am going to keep that complement.

:12:14.:12:17.

A charity says it's so desperate for money it's had to open a shop

:12:17.:12:23.

to help boost funds. Derby City free advice on debt, benefits and

:12:23.:12:25.

housing, says it's taken this step because of cuts in council and

:12:25.:12:33.

Government funding. James Roberson reports.

:12:33.:12:38.

In the centre of Derby, this charity shop has just opened, and

:12:38.:12:42.

is run by Derby City Mission, a Christian organisation which helps

:12:42.:12:47.

addicts and the homeless, but also provides advice on debts, benefits

:12:47.:12:51.

and housing. The charity says that it has found its former funding

:12:51.:12:56.

from local authorities has been reduced while central Government is

:12:56.:13:00.

asking Chad is to are together and bid jointly for funds but often

:13:00.:13:05.

this bid still failed despite the time and effort put into them.

:13:05.:13:09.

is the pinch charities are finding. The Government is asking them to do

:13:09.:13:13.

more as part of the "big society" with less and it is getting

:13:13.:13:18.

difficult to do that so we are having to diversify. The mission so

:13:18.:13:22.

is the shop as a way of creating a direct stream of money to keep

:13:22.:13:28.

their advice service go ing. Money is a bit more scarce. Charities

:13:28.:13:32.

have to do this to get funding, it is a shame, but they are

:13:32.:13:35.

resourceful people and it is wonderful to see that kind of

:13:35.:13:44.

effort into the can unity. charity shop, however, in a crowded

:13:44.:13:50.

place. There are lots more near this one. Also nearby, businesses

:13:50.:13:55.

offering finance. The mission hopes their shop can compete for

:13:55.:13:59.

donations in these times. We hope to have a constant stream of income.

:13:59.:14:04.

We hope it works. There is more and more need in this area. More people

:14:04.:14:09.

are finding themselves in debt, more people need benefits, and the

:14:10.:14:14.

poor are getting more squeezed. When even one of the Three Kings

:14:14.:14:19.

needs funds, Derby City Mission hopes its shop will last beyond

:14:19.:14:21.

Christmas. Still to come on the programme:

:14:21.:14:25.

The fairy that's a festive fixture. In over 80 years, she's never not

:14:25.:14:35.
:14:35.:14:43.

been at the top of the tree. Is I suspect she will tell us, too.

:14:43.:14:46.

He's been described as one of the world's leading artists with some

:14:46.:14:50.

of his work being sold for over a million pounds. Now, as part of a

:14:50.:14:51.

touring exhibition, Nottingham Castle is showcasing the sculptures

:14:52.:14:55.

of Anish Kapoor, a man who's already made a mark on the city.

:14:55.:15:05.
:15:05.:15:07.

Whether it is a sculpture designed for the Olympics or Nottingham's

:15:07.:15:11.

very own Sky Mirror, the artist Anish Kapoor has become famous for

:15:11.:15:14.

his larger-than-life pieces that play with the was imagination and

:15:14.:15:18.

perspective. The exhibition at Nottingham Castle is looking back

:15:18.:15:25.

on his 30 year career, from early pigment pieces inspired by market

:15:25.:15:30.

stalls to sculptures in unusual shapes and sizes. He is creating

:15:30.:15:34.

optical illusions, really, which he wants you to explore and discover

:15:34.:15:38.

for yourself, so it is giving the game away a bit, but a piece like

:15:38.:15:42.

this when he is working with the architect of the building, you are

:15:42.:15:47.

not sure. Ins that is best he has carved in the ball or something

:15:47.:15:52.

protruding out of the space? It changes, and the way you changes --

:15:52.:16:00.

the way you read it changes as you move around it. Just like the Sky

:16:00.:16:02.

Mirror, Anish Kapoor loves playing with the idea of mirrors and

:16:02.:16:07.

reflections. In his world, the image is always distorted and quite

:16:07.:16:13.

surreal, so that you have no sense of space and perspective. They are

:16:13.:16:18.

concave forms and they have a focus. As you move, as a viewer, as you

:16:18.:16:23.

move in and out of that point, it is a mystical point in the middle

:16:23.:16:31.

of space somewhere, you are almost captivated by the objects and how

:16:31.:16:35.

it operates in the room. It is 10 years since the Sky Mirror was

:16:35.:16:40.

installed in Nottingham, creating a well-loved and smart. Now staff

:16:40.:16:48.

hope visitors will enjoy a spectrum of his work so far. That is great

:16:49.:16:52.

stuff, isn't it? I love that Sky Mirror.

:16:52.:16:58.

Grey it talent to. -- great talent.

:16:58.:17:01.

The Politics Show this Sunday explores a radical proposal to

:17:01.:17:03.

launch the first co-operative school in the East Midlands. Here's

:17:03.:17:07.

Chris Doidge. From January, De Vinci Community College will be

:17:07.:17:11.

part-owned by parents and the wider community. And pupils will get a

:17:11.:17:15.

seat on the board that runs the school. How will that work and how

:17:15.:17:20.

do those involved view about the idea?

:17:20.:17:22.

Will find out. Join Marie Ashby for the Politics

:17:22.:17:26.

Show from twelve noon on Sunday. All the weekend's football previews

:17:26.:17:29.

to come, including Derby's game tonight but the big atmosphere will

:17:29.:17:39.
:17:39.:17:42.

be at the rugby, Leicester Tigers against Northampton. The big local

:17:42.:17:52.
:17:52.:18:01.

derby and not a ticket to be had at Oh, yes. Welford Road will be sold

:18:01.:18:06.

out. It has been for weeks. Excellent news for the club. When

:18:06.:18:13.

they build this stadium, they didn't think there was going to be

:18:13.:18:18.

enough support to keep it going. It has not panned out that way. Every

:18:18.:18:25.

soldered fixture is a chance to spread Tiger's message. When you

:18:25.:18:31.

get the fixture list, you look at Northampton. So it is the one that

:18:31.:18:35.

players look forward to and especially the fans. Times are hard

:18:35.:18:40.

for everybody and people choose to spend their money elsewhere. But

:18:40.:18:46.

loyal supporters turn out week in and week out. There are a lot of

:18:46.:18:49.

season-ticket holders and we appreciate everybody that turns up.

:18:49.:18:54.

So, it will be full for Tigers first is Saints. It hardly ever

:18:54.:18:58.

lacks drama. Take the Premiership semi-final at the end of last

:18:58.:19:04.

season. A punch by manager Lennie and has since defeat, so will they

:19:04.:19:10.

be thinking revenge? They will have their own motivations and we've got

:19:10.:19:15.

our The Faith Machine, and we will see how it comes to get the.

:19:15.:19:20.

that history is a massive thing. The players come through here and

:19:20.:19:25.

wait with the crowd right above the heads which means they can feel the

:19:25.:19:33.

energy of the fans as they wind themselves up. You wait in the

:19:33.:19:37.

changing room and they start banging their feet, clapping, and

:19:37.:19:42.

you come out and they are roaring. You come down those stairs, 100

:19:42.:19:48.

years old, it has got that old feel. This is a special thing. When they

:19:48.:19:52.

arrive on that pitch, they know they are in for a rough encounter.

:19:52.:20:00.

They always are. It is Tiger's first is Saints.

:20:00.:20:03.

-- Tigers first is Saints. Nigel Clough's looking to avoid an

:20:03.:20:06.

unwanted record tonight, a sixth straight defeat, which would be his

:20:06.:20:09.

worst League run as Derby County manager. In less than an hour, the

:20:09.:20:12.

Rams kick off at Crystal Palace, who beat Manchester United in

:20:12.:20:17.

midweek. At least the players are keeping positive.

:20:17.:20:23.

It is so tight, still. One win and you jump back up there. Two wins

:20:23.:20:30.

and you are in the play-offs. We try to look forward instead of

:20:30.:20:34.

putting doom and gloom on the Games. You have got to take the positive

:20:34.:20:37.

out of it. And you can hear full commentary of

:20:37.:20:40.

the Rams game tonight on BBC Radio Derby. Their coverage gets underway

:20:40.:20:43.

in a few minutes' time. We'll have the goals in our late news.

:20:43.:20:46.

Over the weekend, there's plenty of intrigue for the rest of the East

:20:46.:20:49.

Midlands. There are games at the top and bottom of the Championship,

:20:50.:20:52.

and Notts County's FA Cup adventure into non-league territory. Here's

:20:52.:21:00.

Ross Fletcher. Just over a fortnight ago, Nigel

:21:00.:21:04.

Pearson was wearing the Hull city tracksuit but tomorrow he returns

:21:04.:21:10.

to the KC Stadium but as manager of Leicester City. The midweek win

:21:10.:21:15.

over Blackpool propelled them to the play-off places and Pearson is

prepared for a hot reception at Hull. The focus for me is preparing

:21:21.:21:27.

for the game. And the sub-plots, of course, I am aware of them and the

:21:27.:21:30.

reason for a potential distraction. A but we will prepare for the gay.

At the other end, Nottingham Forest scrambling out of the relegation

zone after their home humbling by Leeds, it is a trip to the Brighton

seaside. It is not my is being in the bottom three but we have got a

:21:44.:21:50.

good squad and good players. And I think, you know, we will be fine,

:21:50.:21:54.

but we need to, as you say, get some confidence back in and get

:21:54.:22:00.

some points of. There is no panic at Notts County but a tricky FA Cup

second-round tie at Sutton United on Sunday. In front of a national

:22:14.:22:15.

TV camera. That is what it is all about. I love it. I enjoy it. It is

:22:16.:22:21.

another game of football, us against them. A big game for this

:22:21.:22:25.

club. They beat the same opposition three years ago in the first round.

:22:25.:22:32.

They are now focused on a repeat performance. All the details on

:22:32.:22:37.

that plus, of course, all the other rugby, ice hockey and everything

:22:37.:22:44.

else is on Monday. Leicester Riders are in action tonight on basketball.

:22:44.:22:53.

Now, it's that time of year again. Ding Dong merrily on high. The

:22:53.:23:01.

Christmas trees are going up, the decorations are coming out. And one

:23:01.:23:04.

woman in Nottingham reckons she's got the oldest Christmas fairy in

:23:04.:23:14.
:23:14.:23:16.

the East Midlands. I suspect that might be it. Tom Brown reports. At

:23:16.:23:20.

this house in Clifton, Christmas preparations begin like anywhere

:23:20.:23:25.

else. Decorations come down from the loft. Some have seen better

:23:25.:23:32.

days. How about this? A Christmas Ferry which is almost 80 years old.

:23:32.:23:36.

She was my late grand mal's and then she was passed down to my

:23:36.:23:43.

mother. And, obviously, my mother passed away, so she is mine and my

:23:43.:23:50.

brother's little ferry. My brother climbs in a raft -- in the loft, so

:23:50.:23:53.

we can put her on the Christmas tree. But we do not know what to

:23:53.:23:57.

put the branches because she is so us look -- so small. This has been

:23:57.:24:04.

going on for You Us. Festival, you've got to get the lights down.

:24:04.:24:07.

There is somebody up and a loft that breaks the Christmas lights in

:24:07.:24:14.

the loft! So when we put it at the top, we say, yes, it is time to put

:24:14.:24:19.

the lights on. It has survived for 80 years, so how much longer can

:24:19.:24:25.

she go on? She can do another generation. We hope so. I am

:24:25.:24:30.

treating her like gold. She will even give you a little wave. She is

:24:30.:24:39.

so cute. A little wave! Was that your little

:24:39.:24:41.

fairy wave? Yes.

:24:41.:24:44.

We asked you in our lunchtime programme if you had any other old

:24:44.:24:46.

decorations from Christmas' past and you didn't disappoint us. This

:24:46.:24:50.

Santa Claus is 91 years old and sits on the Christmas tree of

:24:50.:24:53.

Elizabeth Craig from Melton Mowbray. It belonged to her mother and was

:24:53.:24:58.

bought for her first tree in 1920. This lovely Christmas angel is more

:24:58.:25:01.

60 years old and belongs to Donna Oliver from Grantham, after it was

:25:01.:25:05.

handed from her grandmother. And, finally, John Wood from

:25:05.:25:09.

Leicester sent us this picture of his Father Christmas decoration. It

:25:09.:25:12.

was bought by his father in the 1950s and is still used today, even

:25:12.:25:18.

though he says it's a little worse for wear.

:25:18.:25:21.

I don't think he looks too bad at all.

:25:21.:25:24.

So, if you have any very old decorations from Christmas past,

:25:24.:25:27.

then let us know on Twitter, Facebook or email, at these

:25:27.:25:31.

addresses. And we will try to feature them before Christmas.

:25:31.:25:38.

Oh, yes, we will. Have a ferret around in your loft.

:25:38.:25:42.

Father Christmas coming down from the loft to come up for a start up

:25:42.:25:47.

to you have any? My mum has a schoolmate decoration,

:25:47.:25:57.
:25:57.:26:00.

a shuttlecock angel. I will be putting my Christmas

:26:00.:26:04.

decorations up, but these are the statistics to do with all term

:26:04.:26:10.

which has just come to an end. It was the second warmest on record.

:26:10.:26:16.

Records began in 1910. Many areas across the East Midlands have seen

:26:16.:26:21.

just half the expected rainfall for the period, so, having said that,

:26:21.:26:28.

we did wake up to a frost this morning across the East Midlands.

:26:28.:26:33.

Tonight, we will be much milder with blustery showers and those

:26:33.:26:39.

strong winds. You can send your weather pictures to us as well. We

:26:39.:26:43.

can see this next area of rain accompanied by winds heading from

:26:43.:26:49.

the West. On the radar picture, there have been some showers across

:26:49.:26:54.

that East Midlands. They will continue and wither the patchy

:26:54.:27:04.

aspects of rain. Under that cloud and rain, temperatures will be mild.

:27:04.:27:11.

So, we start off Saturday morning with the rain Clearing. It soon

:27:11.:27:17.

brightens up with good sunny spells. It will be breezy so hang on to

:27:17.:27:22.

your Christmas shopping bags! Temperature-wise, up to around nine.

:27:23.:27:27.

On Sunday, it looks like being largely dry for most of the day but

:27:27.:27:33.

don't rule out the chance of some showers heading our way from the

:27:33.:27:37.
