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

:00:11.:00:14.

Our top story tonight: a convicted crime boss pulls the strings, from

:00:14.:00:23.

his prison cell. A bleak future for closer

threatened maternity units. Some women feared the worst. My baby was

:00:28.:00:33.

born quite quickly. If it had happened to me, my husband

:00:33.:00:36.

delivering my baby would not have been ideal.

:00:36.:00:39.

We speak to the residents who have not had there been as collective

with your fame, the positive things Good evening and welcome to

:01:08.:01:14.

Monday's programme. First tonight, a gang boss convicted of murder has

:01:14.:01:18.

won the right to demand the names of officers who write reports about

:01:18.:01:20.

him. He wants to know who is compiling

:01:20.:01:23.

his record as he serves a life sentence in a high security prison.

:01:23.:01:27.

Colin Gunn ran a gang in Nottingham blamed for giving the city its

:01:27.:01:31.

reputation for gun crime. He was finally jailed for ordering the

:01:31.:01:35.

murders of John and Joan Stirland in a vendetta killing. Gunn's

:01:35.:01:38.

serving 35 years, currently in the high security Belmarsh prison in

:01:38.:01:43.

London. It's there he complained that prison officers' names and

:01:43.:01:48.

other information were withheld from copies of his record. The

:01:48.:01:50.

Prisons and Probation Ombudsman agreed and Belmarsh has now

:01:50.:01:55.

arranged to give him uncensored copies.

:01:55.:01:58.

Well, our chief news reporter Quentin Rayner joins us now. What's

:01:58.:02:06.

behind his demand? Colin Gunn complained that since

:02:06.:02:08.

being at the high security Belmarsh prison, reports written about him

:02:08.:02:14.

didn't include names of the prison officers who'd written them. He

:02:14.:02:16.

said officers' names hadn't been removed at his previous high

:02:16.:02:22.

security jail. So he complained to the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.

:02:22.:02:24.

The Prison Service advised the ombudsman that information should

:02:24.:02:28.

only be redacted in exceptional circumstances. So the ombudsman

:02:28.:02:31.

asked Belmarsh to review the records given to Gunn and a

:02:31.:02:37.

governor there decided that he should receive unredacted copies.

:02:37.:02:45.

How did this come to light? The ruling was actually made in May of

:02:45.:02:48.

this year but it's only just come to the public's attention. Because

:02:48.:02:51.

a letter from Gunn has been published in this month's edition

:02:51.:02:53.

of Inside Time, the national newspaper for prisoners. In it he

:02:53.:02:57.

wrote: I know that prison staff up and down the country must hate the

:02:57.:03:00.

thought of us being able to actually see who has written what

:03:00.:03:04.

about us and will try to tell us we are not entitled to see names and

:03:04.:03:07.

redacted information but this is 100% wrong. I hope this will be of

:03:07.:03:10.

help to others. The ombudsman ruled that the names of prison staff

:03:10.:03:13.

should only be removed if there is reasonable expectation that bodily

:03:13.:03:16.

safety or even life itself are put at risk, but the Prison Officers'

:03:16.:03:23.

Association isn't reassured. If the ruling is put in force to

:03:23.:03:26.

the letter, and there is a knee- jerk reaction to it, and every

:03:26.:03:29.

prisoner in a country is good in the name of every single prison

:03:29.:03:32.

officer it has ever made an entry about them or give any information

:03:33.:03:38.

about them, it could place prison officers in severe jeopardy for

:03:38.:03:43.

their safety. Now this isn't the first time the ombudsman has ruled

:03:43.:03:47.

in Colin Gunn's favour. Last year he won the right to be called Mr

:03:47.:03:49.

Gunn by prison officers, complaining he wasn't being treated

:03:49.:03:55.

with respect. The future of two midwife-led

:03:55.:03:59.

maternity units in the Derbyshire will be decided this week. The NHS

:03:59.:04:02.

wants to close the Darley Birth Centre near Matlock and a similar

:04:02.:04:05.

facility in Buxton. It says both units are relics from the past and

:04:05.:04:15.
:04:15.:04:16.

too expensive to keep open. A Maisie came into the world nine

:04:16.:04:22.

months ago. She was born at the Darley Dale birth centre near

:04:22.:04:27.

Matlock. Her mother got what she wanted, a natural birth and she had

:04:27.:04:34.

no pain relief. It was fantastic. I had a really easy second birth and

:04:34.:04:42.

no complications, no problems. family value the Birth Centre so

:04:42.:04:46.

much that they have decided to spread the world -- spread the word

:04:46.:04:52.

of a unit under threat. I did a big bike ride, without leaving

:04:52.:04:57.

Derbyshire. The primary care trusts says it doesn't doubt people's

:04:57.:05:03.

affection for the unit but says there are simply not enough birth.

:05:03.:05:08.

In the last 12 months, only 100 people have used it. Have you been

:05:08.:05:14.

winding its down? At its best it would have been 150 or 160. The

:05:14.:05:20.

guidance we have is that around 300 makes basis Bain the ball -- makes

:05:20.:05:26.

a sustainable Birth Centre. Could it be marketed before? That has

:05:26.:05:32.

been done before. We don't think they are marketed fit enough before.

:05:32.:05:37.

This meeting in 1980 it closed similar units in other towns. In

:05:37.:05:43.

fact, there are now just four stand-alone midwife Redberth units

:05:43.:05:47.

in our region. Darley Dale sells itself with a birth pool and mood

:05:47.:05:50.

lighting. Today's weather has done little to lift the mood of

:05:50.:05:53.

campaigners and it might not be the only winter gloom they have to put

:05:54.:05:58.

up with if Wednesday's closure recommendations go through. Still

:05:58.:06:08.
:06:08.:06:09.

to come on the programme: a hidden army of young carers.

:06:09.:06:16.

A normal childhood for Sophie means caring for her disabled mum. She

:06:16.:06:19.

says it's no big deal but, as you'll, see it it ia, for Sophie

:06:19.:06:24.

and thousands like her. British police officers have

:06:24.:06:27.

travelled to Spain in the hunt for Madeleine McCann. Madeleine from

:06:27.:06:30.

Rothley disappeared in Portugal four years ago. Scotland Yard

:06:30.:06:33.

detectives were asked by the Prime Minister to review the case after

:06:33.:06:36.

Portuguese police dropped its investigation. The Metropolitan

:06:37.:06:39.

Police say last month's visit to Barcelona and previous trips to

:06:39.:06:48.

Portugal were to liaise with other forces.

:06:48.:06:51.

17 people have been arrested in Leicestershire during the first

:06:51.:06:53.

weekend of the Christmas anti- drink-drive campaign. The None for

:06:53.:06:56.

the Road campaign started last Thursday. Police say nine people

:06:56.:06:59.

were over the alcohol limit on Saturday alone. Last year 125

:06:59.:07:01.

motorists were arrested for drink driving during the whole of

:07:01.:07:07.

December. It's not just the roads that are

:07:07.:07:10.

being prepared for the cold weather this year, East Midlands Trains

:07:10.:07:14.

says its improving the way it deals with freezing temperatures. The

:07:14.:07:16.

company's planning special snow timetables and has new anti-freeze

:07:16.:07:19.

in vehicles which can withstand temperatures as low as minus 28

:07:19.:07:24.

degrees Celsius. It also plans to offer passenger information on

:07:24.:07:30.

special screens and through dedicated Twitter feeds.

:07:30.:07:32.

Nottingham City Council has apologised after people living in a

:07:32.:07:36.

block of flats had to wait more than two weeks to have their bins

:07:36.:07:38.

emptied. Residents said they felt ignored by

:07:38.:07:42.

the authority. However, the rubbish was finally taken away less than an

:07:42.:07:47.

hour after our lunchtime programme had reported their complaints.

:07:47.:07:50.

The council says major changes to its bin collection schedules were

:07:50.:07:59.

to blame for the delay. This was the scene at 10am today.

:07:59.:08:03.

The council had not collected the bins at this block of flats since

:08:03.:08:06.

the middle of November. Residents taking out their rubbish were

:08:06.:08:12.

greeted by overflowing bins and piles of bags. It is not on. The

:08:12.:08:15.

council just ignores us. They are ignoring a sound that is the only

:08:15.:08:20.

thing I can say. They are totally ignoring our plight. If this is

:08:20.:08:24.

council care, I don't know what is Foster with of a room beginning to

:08:24.:08:29.

phone up, some residents were forced to put rubbish on their

:08:29.:08:39.
:08:39.:08:41.

patios. -- with the room are beginning to fill up. I found... We

:08:41.:08:45.

are getting desperate. These were the views aired on our lunchtime

:08:46.:08:49.

programme today. Then, at around 2pm, the bins were finally

:08:49.:08:55.

collected. As soon as it is on television, it is clear within 20

:08:55.:09:03.

minutes. Why has the response to the phone calls we've made... Why

:09:03.:09:10.

have they done nothing? It is a side effect to last month's changes

:09:10.:09:14.

to bin collections. It says the new system will save them �700,000 a

:09:14.:09:17.

year but there have been some teething problems. Two weeks on and

:09:17.:09:21.

the rubbish at at least 200 properties is still to be collected.

:09:21.:09:29.

But for the residence here, things are finally back to normal. --

:09:29.:09:33.

residents. A youth project that's facing

:09:33.:09:38.

closure got some unlikely celebrity backing today.

:09:38.:09:40.

The American pop-star, Aloe Blacc, popped into to Nottingham's

:09:40.:09:43.

Community Recording Studio, ahead of a performance in the city

:09:43.:09:53.
:09:53.:10:01.

This is the track that turned him into a overnight recording star. He

:10:01.:10:04.

was visiting Dane Nottingham youth project that is desperately short

:10:04.:10:10.

of money. It has been taking teenagers off the streets for 21

:10:10.:10:20.

years. There are questions for local school children as well.

:10:20.:10:24.

is not about the money you have put about what you can do with your

:10:24.:10:30.

fame. I hope I can inspire the local community to support this

:10:30.:10:33.

project because without it, places will not be able to stick around.

:10:33.:10:41.

We needed. -- we need it forced up and then he listens to some of the

:10:41.:10:47.

young musicians. -- we need it. And then he came and listened to some

:10:47.:10:57.

of them the UN musicians. It gives awareness to the work that we do.

:10:57.:11:00.

Last year, another big name from the musical world came to visit.

:11:00.:11:06.

Feargal Sharkey was here with the culture minister to unveil a new

:11:06.:11:09.

rehearsal space. Now the studio might have to close because of cuts

:11:09.:11:17.

in its funding. We are reaching the point where we could cease to be.

:11:17.:11:20.

People were completely disillusioned, had no way to go, we

:11:20.:11:24.

were bringing parents. We are trying to make sure that kids are

:11:24.:11:28.

not confused because it was a big issue, the riots. I don't know how

:11:28.:11:34.

easy we could have been of places like this were around. Getting

:11:34.:11:38.

support from such a big star is a shot in the arm but it is money

:11:38.:11:45.

they really need here. It will take very much more than a dollar to get

:11:45.:11:51.

this centre up and running. Now it's hard enough caring for a

:11:51.:11:54.

family member virtually full time but it's even harder if you're

:11:54.:11:57.

trying to do well at school too. But that's the reality facing 14-

:11:57.:12:00.

year-old Sophie Walker from Derby, who, with her dad, looks after her

:12:00.:12:02.

mum who suffers from Huntingdon's disease.

:12:03.:12:06.

In the first of our series on carers, James Roberson went to met

:12:06.:12:09.

Sophie, whose only respite from her duties comes through her dance

:12:09.:12:17.

classes. At classes in Derby, Sophie Walker

:12:17.:12:22.

looks like all the other young dancers learning the latest routine.

:12:22.:12:32.
:12:32.:12:33.

For Sophie, this is her knee time. -- me time. But she soon get back

:12:33.:12:37.

to her other eating, washing up and making food, so she can help to

:12:37.:12:44.

look after her mother. She has Huntington's disease. It

:12:44.:12:47.

progressively affects the brain and nervous system. Hadn't really mind

:12:48.:12:52.

because I think I am used to it now. I don't find it as hard. -- I don't

:12:52.:12:57.

really mind. Some people think it is a big deal but it is normal life.

:12:57.:13:01.

Sophie has spent most of her child at helping care for her mother. As

:13:01.:13:06.

her condition has worsened, so he has done more and more so Alpo,

:13:06.:13:10.

from making her bed debating have lost up people say you are doing

:13:10.:13:16.

really well. She just doesn't see what all the fuss is about. She

:13:16.:13:20.

doesn't think she is anything special. So he also has to fit in

:13:20.:13:25.

homework and every week her dancing, her bit of respite care. It gives

:13:25.:13:30.

me a really good break and everyone is fully supportive. It gives me

:13:30.:13:38.

someone to talk to land gives me a break. Because my father a break.

:13:38.:13:42.

Her parents are proud of her daughter who has already won a

:13:42.:13:45.

committee Champions Award and is hoping to be part of the Olympic

:13:45.:13:50.

torch relay. The mother nominated me. I felt really good. I like it

:13:50.:13:54.

when I make my mother pride and she is happy. As long as my mother is

:13:54.:14:03.

happy, I'm happy as well. There could be up to 750,000 teenagers

:14:03.:14:06.

like Sophie across the country. Many are reluctant to admit they

:14:06.:14:09.

care for other people, a point made by Nikki Thompson from the

:14:09.:14:11.

Barnardo's charity earlier this afternoon.

:14:11.:14:15.

The overriding fear for young carers and their parents is if they

:14:15.:14:19.

ask for help it will be perceived that they are not coping and they

:14:19.:14:22.

are frightened that their family will be split up if they do ask for

:14:22.:14:26.

some support. That is not what happens but I think that is the

:14:26.:14:30.

overriding fear. That is the biggest challenge that we all face

:14:30.:14:32.

in terms of identifying young people like Sophie and their

:14:32.:14:38.

parents. Sophie is obviously comfortable with her role. She is a

:14:38.:14:42.

great girl. There are other children who would fear being

:14:42.:14:48.

bullied, is that right? Yes. At Barnardo's, day-in, day-out, we

:14:48.:14:53.

would have lots of young carers who are not coping as well as Sophie

:14:53.:14:57.

and to one not as resilient as Sophie evidently is. One of the

:14:57.:15:02.

many negative impacts of being a young carer can be bullying from

:15:02.:15:12.
:15:12.:15:13.

Piers, which is very distressing. - - peers. No teenager wants to be

:15:13.:15:19.

seen as being different. Sadly, in society, even today, there are

:15:19.:15:23.

tremendous stigmas associated with mental health, physical

:15:23.:15:26.

disabilities and alcohol and substance issues, which many of our

:15:26.:15:31.

young carers parents are experiencing. By association, the

:15:31.:15:35.

young carers are stigmatised as well. I know that Barnardo's

:15:35.:15:38.

supports young carers. There is help out there, isn't there?

:15:38.:15:43.

Certainly, Barnardo works with over 350 young carers in Leicester and

:15:43.:15:47.

Leicestershire every year. There are other young care services

:15:47.:15:54.

throughout the East Midlands. There is a great website younger carers

:15:54.:16:04.
:16:04.:16:05.

.net. You can search in your area. There is a safe chat room as well.

:16:05.:16:11.

Still to come: it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

:16:11.:16:14.

Yes, snow in some parts last night. And there's another cold one on the

:16:15.:16:24.
:16:25.:16:25.

way. I am keeping warm and snug, looking at some of the snowy images

:16:25.:16:28.

that have come in today four cross region. I will be giving you the

:16:28.:16:38.
:16:38.:16:48.

First Nigel Pearson says he'll be looking to tweak his Leicester City

:16:48.:16:51.

squad in the January transfer window. It follows defeat to his

:16:51.:17:00.

old club Hull City at the weekend. Jeremy Nicholas reports.

:17:00.:17:09.

The Hull City Platt -- fans had been... They were not impressed.

:17:09.:17:15.

Another game. That is your people's job to build it up like that. It

:17:15.:17:19.

was a game we are all looking forward to. 10 of the 11 players

:17:20.:17:25.

were signed by Pearson and it was left to his players to open the

:17:25.:17:29.

scoring, nearly. A crucial moment was the sending off of his play a.

:17:29.:17:34.

At first, the second red card seemed harsh but closer inspection

:17:34.:17:38.

showed it wasn't for the initial challenge but for the following

:17:39.:17:42.

trip. Have got no complaints with it. I've seen at a number of times.

:17:43.:17:49.

-- I've got no complaints with it. Friarton made no mistakes from the

:17:49.:17:52.

spot. Leicester were back in the game when David Nugent found

:17:52.:17:57.

himself in space. His shot was straight at the keeper. The shot

:17:57.:18:03.

came back to this other player. His right foot found the bottom corner.

:18:03.:18:08.

The travelling supporters sang, with only got 10 men, and it looked

:18:08.:18:14.

like they were going to win it. But this player scored a goal right at

:18:14.:18:24.
:18:24.:18:26.

We know we've got very good players. The balance of the squad needs

:18:26.:18:30.

tweaking slightly. We will look at that when the January comes but

:18:30.:18:37.

there is a bit of football to be paid between Valand them. --

:18:37.:18:40.

between now and then. Leicester's squad, tweaked or not,

:18:41.:18:43.

learned yesterday they will go to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup

:18:44.:18:46.

third round. So no pressure for either team there. Actually, its

:18:46.:18:49.

probably an unwelcome distraction for Forest in particular. A third

:18:49.:18:52.

defeat on the bounce on Saturday in another game which Forest should

:18:52.:18:54.

have won. This is why they did not. But his

:18:54.:18:56.

injury time and a moment of weakness and Brighton and pick

:18:56.:19:06.
:19:06.:19:08.

Forest. -- unpick. It was a crawl way to lose it. We've got to keep

:19:08.:19:14.

our focus and belief. We cannot turn in a performance like that and

:19:14.:19:18.

there be too much wrong with us. can show you exactly what Steve

:19:18.:19:28.
:19:28.:19:28.

Especially in the second half, passing and movement to savour. In

:19:28.:19:33.

the end there, all for nothing. Like it or not, Nottingham Forest

:19:33.:19:40.

of Ackerman bottom three. -- back in the bottom three.

:19:40.:19:45.

Bit of Forest news today. Former striker Marlon Harewood is back

:19:45.:19:51.

training with the club. He's been playing in China and becomes a free

:19:51.:19:54.

agent next month. Notts County are safely through to the third round

:19:54.:19:58.

of the FA Cup, where a they have the rather dull draw of Doncaster

:19:58.:20:01.

away. But at least they made it past non-league Sutton United.

:20:01.:20:04.

Notts progress was by no means certain until the very end of the

:20:04.:20:07.

game. Jeff Hughes had given them the lead 35 minutes in, but Notts

:20:07.:20:10.

only stayed in front because Stuart Nelson was able to save a Sutton

:20:10.:20:13.

penalty. The Magpies finally finished their non league opponents

:20:13.:20:16.

off in injury time. Hughes again. One final thing from the FA Cup.

:20:16.:20:19.

Derby, who drew against Crystal Palace in the league on Friday,

:20:19.:20:22.

will be at home to guess who? Crystal Palace, in the third round

:20:22.:20:25.

of the Cup. In Rugby, a bit of a relief for me.

:20:25.:20:28.

On Friday I absolutely promised you Leicester Tigers against

:20:28.:20:30.

Northampton would be exciting. So thank goodness it was. Tigers

:20:30.:20:33.

victorious by just five points in a cracking Premiership game at a

:20:33.:20:41.

packed Welford Road. It is fair to say they will not be

:20:41.:20:50.

many Christmas cards sent between these two teams. Northampton's Tom

:20:50.:20:53.
