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

:00:03.:00:06.

top story tonight - eight and half years in jail for a former company

:00:06.:00:13.

boss who swindled his way to a fortune. Yes, Max Fraser was the

:00:13.:00:15.

mastermind behind a �100 million fraud which saw hundreds of people

:00:16.:00:23.

lose their jobs. Also tonight, a moment of panic as

:00:23.:00:28.

armed police swoop on a busy shopping street. There was a guy,

:00:28.:00:32.

must have been about five metres away from me. Police surrounded him.

:00:32.:00:36.

There must have been at least 15 of them.

:00:36.:00:40.

Plus... Do people know we have no choice but to close the school?

:00:49.:00:59.
:00:59.:01:05.

why they're counting all the Good evening and welcome to the

:01:05.:01:08.

programme. First tonight, a Leicester businessman has been sent

:01:08.:01:10.

to jail for masterminding a fraud involving "staggering" sums of

:01:10.:01:16.

money. Max Fraser conned finance companies into lending him more

:01:16.:01:22.

than �100 million. He enjoyed a luxury lifestyle, driving racing

:01:22.:01:25.

cars and using the company yacht but his deception had far-reaching

:01:25.:01:31.

consequences. It led to hundreds of workers losing their jobs, and

:01:31.:01:34.

devastated the lives of his wife and two young children. Sarah Teale

:01:34.:01:44.
:01:44.:01:48.

This is Max Fraser. The mastermind behind one of the biggest frauds of

:01:48.:01:52.

its kind in this country. But his deception had a massive impact on

:01:52.:01:58.

those he employed and the companies he conned. Max Fraser was a very

:01:58.:02:03.

charismatic, intelligent man. Very articulate and very persuasive.

:02:04.:02:06.

to some of the documentation that was generated during the

:02:06.:02:10.

investigation. Leicestershire Police spent four years

:02:10.:02:14.

investigating him to get to the bottom of an extremely complex

:02:14.:02:21.

fraud which darted back in 2001. Fraser and a plastics company based

:02:21.:02:25.

in Leicester. -- ran a plastics company. It is still run today but

:02:25.:02:30.

legitimately. Back then, the, was to get finance for these, expensive

:02:30.:02:35.

extrusion machines. Using false invoices produced by Stoke-on-Trent

:02:35.:02:40.

company H T L, he persuaded more than 30 banks and financial

:02:40.:02:45.

institutions to finance 700 of the machines. In reality, only 111 of

:02:45.:02:52.

them actually existed. In six years, he got finance worth �110 million.

:02:52.:02:56.

What was his motivation for doing all this? Purely to benefit for

:02:56.:03:03.

himself? I suspect he had two motivations. The first was for

:03:03.:03:08.

financial gain for himself but also secondly for the company. He wanted

:03:08.:03:13.

the company to be the No. 1 global company in the world for extruded

:03:13.:03:18.

material. I believe his initial motivation was that and the only

:03:18.:03:22.

way he could obtain finance to build these machines, because they

:03:22.:03:26.

will be in line than themselves, was through fraudulent activity --

:03:26.:03:30.

they were building than themselves. And they were robbing Peter to pay

:03:30.:03:34.

Paul. He would have to get finance at the end of the day to pay off

:03:34.:03:38.

the other financed. Max Fraser had all the trappings of the luxury

:03:38.:03:44.

lifestyle. A �1 million pad here which he used to live in. He also

:03:44.:03:49.

enjoyed the use of the company yacht, raced four different sports

:03:49.:03:54.

cars and is said to have had flying lessons. Over-thirties finance

:03:54.:03:59.

companies have lost over �50 million -- over 30 finance

:03:59.:04:03.

companies. Is there knowing how many people he has had an impact

:04:03.:04:10.

on? There is no way of knowing the full impact but it is fair to say

:04:10.:04:14.

that hundreds of people have lost their jobs. His Finance employees

:04:14.:04:19.

have lost their jobs and other people who were creditor was.

:04:19.:04:23.

for Leicestershire Police, this has been one of their most complex

:04:23.:04:28.

investigations. We have recovered over 50,000 documents as a result

:04:28.:04:32.

of the inquiry which all had to be examined individually. That takes

:04:32.:04:39.

time. We took over 200 witness statements, so all the victims. So

:04:39.:04:46.

yes, it was a very complex and time-consuming operation. David and

:04:46.:04:52.

Elizabeth from Hege T L were jailed for five years and three years

:04:52.:04:58.

respectively. Leicester Crown Court was told that he had believed he

:04:58.:05:01.

could trade his way out of trouble but took complete blame for the

:05:01.:05:05.

devastation he had caused his wife and two young children. Mike

:05:05.:05:10.

Fraser's family were not in court today to hear him sentenced to

:05:10.:05:14.

eight years, eight months in prison. The judge told him that he had

:05:14.:05:18.

risked the businesses and the livelihoods of those who had placed

:05:18.:05:25.

A woman who says she has been made seriously ill by the controversial

:05:25.:05:27.

PIP breast implants says the private clinics who put them in

:05:27.:05:32.

should now have to replace them. Tonight though the Government has

:05:32.:05:34.

ruled there isn't enough evidence to recommend the routine removal of

:05:34.:05:39.

the French-manufactured implants. Tara Smith from Newark in

:05:39.:05:42.

Nottinghamshire has set up a Facebook group to campaign to help

:05:42.:05:45.

women caught up in the scandal. Our health correspondent Rob Sissons

:05:45.:05:52.

reports. 700 women have joined this Facebook campaign. She had two set

:05:52.:05:57.

of PIP implants and paid herself in the end to get them removed but

:05:57.:06:00.

believes private clinics should now for others three removal and

:06:00.:06:06.

replacement. I think the clinics should be giving money back and

:06:06.:06:09.

public that the person decide whether they want to go. You have

:06:09.:06:13.

got to remember, we do not trust our clinics any more. She says she

:06:13.:06:17.

did not like her body before the implant and it was initially

:06:17.:06:21.

pleased but told me the first pair ruptured and have the second pair

:06:21.:06:31.
:06:31.:06:31.

of PIP replacements removed as concerns were raised. You can see

:06:31.:06:36.

the runny liquid and I can't believe I have them inside me for

:06:36.:06:44.

three years. Some commentators said it would be wrong for the

:06:44.:06:49.

Government to pick up the bill. insurers for the suppliers and for

:06:49.:06:58.

the clinics have been suggested to get together amateur medical

:06:58.:07:02.

removals and perhaps fund the operation. This woman understands

:07:02.:07:06.

the clinic that put the implants in is no longer in business. It took

:07:06.:07:11.

me a lot of time to find a clinic that I trusted. I read into it for

:07:11.:07:21.
:07:21.:07:25.

a long time and I feel let down now Many of these implants have been

:07:25.:07:30.

put in for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons in the private sector.

:07:30.:07:36.

There have been very few put in by NHS trusts. Certainly in Leicester,

:07:36.:07:40.

University Hospital have never put any of these in so patients who

:07:40.:07:42.

have had reconstructive surgery have nothing to worry about.

:07:42.:07:48.

after spending �23,000 on her breasts on credit cards, Tara

:07:48.:07:55.

Still to come on the programme, the rising costs of renting and buying.

:07:55.:07:58.

As private sector rents rocket, we talk to the couples struggling to

:07:58.:08:07.

afford a home of their own. And after all the excitement of the

:08:08.:08:11.

past few days, the weekend is looking a much calmer affair. All

:08:11.:08:20.

Armed police descended on part of Nottingham city centre this

:08:20.:08:26.

afternoon after reports that an armed robbery was under way. It was

:08:26.:08:29.

just after three o'clock that officers were called to John Lewis

:08:29.:08:35.

in the Victoria Centre as Tom Brown reports.

:08:35.:08:39.

Scenes you would not normally associate with the January sales.

:08:39.:08:42.

This afternoon, Nottingham's bargain hunters were interrupted by

:08:42.:08:47.

armed police following reports of an attempted robbery at John Lewis.

:08:47.:08:50.

I was outside the Victoria Centre going into town. A number of police

:08:50.:08:56.

cars pulled up with blue lights. Being a photographer, I hung about.

:08:57.:09:03.

They were shouting at an individual as tell you be built to stand still.

:09:03.:09:08.

Then they put the weapons and the red dot on his chest. The incident

:09:08.:09:11.

lasted less than one hour. Witnesses say the police were

:09:11.:09:14.

professional but that did was worrying to see them armed on

:09:14.:09:19.

Nottingham Street. There must have been at least 10, 15 of them

:09:19.:09:28.

pointing guns. He did not seem to be armed. It shook me up quite a

:09:28.:09:33.

bit. Police arrested the man on suspicion of attempted robbery.

:09:33.:09:37.

Although they say it there is no evidence that a firearm was used

:09:37.:09:41.

and nobody was injured. Council tax in Leicester could rise

:09:41.:09:47.

by 3.5% from April. The news comes as the City Council reveals its

:09:47.:09:50.

latest proposals to make �40 million of cuts to its budget. �17

:09:50.:09:53.

million could come from adult social care services, whilst the

:09:53.:09:56.

future of Leicester's day care centres is also under threat.

:09:56.:10:00.

There's still no word though on what will happen to the city's care

:10:00.:10:04.

homes for the elderly. CCTV footage has been released of

:10:04.:10:07.

two potential witnesses after a serious assault in Leicester. It

:10:08.:10:10.

happened on the Thursday before Christmas at around 5:30pm on

:10:10.:10:14.

Myrtle Road in the city. 23-year- old Salem Bahrami was stabbed in

:10:14.:10:24.
:10:24.:10:25.

the chest. He remains in hospital in a stable condition.

:10:25.:10:28.

There's a warning tonight that the cost of privately renting a house

:10:28.:10:31.

in the East Midlands will rise again in 2012. Demand is increasing

:10:31.:10:33.

because many first-time buyers are struggling with the big deposits

:10:33.:10:36.

needed for a mortgage. All this as the Government and developers try

:10:36.:10:39.

to get more people onto the property ladder with interest-free

:10:39.:10:45.

loans. Mike O'Sullivan looks at the prospects for tenants.

:10:45.:10:55.
:10:55.:10:55.

This couple are renting a house in Derby. They are both in work but

:10:55.:11:00.

the bigger deposits mean that buying a house is not affordable

:11:00.:11:05.

straight away. It is impossible. For somebody our age, it was not

:11:05.:11:12.

feasible, the amount we are earning. I could not say how many people are

:11:12.:11:19.

even close. maybe a couple of years down the line but at the minute,

:11:19.:11:23.

impossible. Absolutely impossible. The latest figures from the group

:11:23.:11:27.

that owns the property firm in Derby shows that private rents

:11:27.:11:30.

dipped for the first time in 10 months in November. The average

:11:30.:11:35.

private rent in the East Midlands now stands at �542 per month. In

:11:36.:11:40.

one year, high demand has meant that figure has gone up by nearly

:11:40.:11:45.

4%. There's not enough supply for new rental property and we are not

:11:45.:11:49.

building enough houses to begin with. There are not enough

:11:49.:11:52.

incentives for buy-to-let developers to provide the sector

:11:52.:11:56.

enough houses to rent. In Oakham in Rutland, this house and developer

:11:56.:12:00.

told me how they are trying to help struggling first-time buyers.

:12:00.:12:04.

Around 20 new-build homes on the site will be offered for sale under

:12:04.:12:08.

the Government's Firstbuy idea. They will be seeing a five-year

:12:08.:12:12.

interest free loan for up to 20% of the purchase price. The level of

:12:12.:12:16.

interest we have had in a short period of time has been higher in

:12:16.:12:20.

other areas than we operate in. There has not been a lot of new-

:12:20.:12:24.

build development here for the past 10 years so there is a huge demand.

:12:24.:12:33.

Back in Derby, Charlotte and down say they will buy one day. Her --

:12:33.:12:38.

hopefully. I would not want to be renting in two years. Demand for

:12:38.:12:42.

rented property will continue to increase this year according to the

:12:42.:12:51.

property company. We heard in Mike's report there

:12:51.:12:54.

about the Government's Firstbuy idea in which they team up with

:12:54.:12:57.

housing developers to help first- time buyers with deposits. It's run

:12:57.:12:59.

in our region by the East Midlands Housing Association in Coalville.

:12:59.:13:02.

Let's speak to the person who's looking after it, Gail Davies. How

:13:02.:13:05.

much difference can Firstbuy really make to someone who's struggling to

:13:05.:13:15.
:13:15.:13:16.

buy? It is there to help first-time buyers get that first step on to

:13:16.:13:22.

the property ladder. To overcome the difficulties that they are

:13:22.:13:28.

finding at the moment with deposits. The scheme is designed to give them

:13:29.:13:34.

the 20% equity loan which is jointly funded by the homes and

:13:34.:13:40.

communities Agency and the developers with them finding 5% to

:13:40.:13:45.

purchase the other 8%. If that makes sense for. You have got 400

:13:45.:13:52.

people who have taken up this form of help. Why are not more people

:13:52.:13:57.

taking up the idea? It is interest free. It is for the first five

:13:57.:14:02.

years. The scheme has only been running since September last year

:14:02.:14:07.

so it is actually increasing all the time with numbers of people

:14:07.:14:11.

that I interested. It is down to the developers really, to promote

:14:11.:14:15.

the schemes more. Some of them are doing sterling jobs on doing that.

:14:15.:14:20.

Very briefly, have you got enough money for the demand for this

:14:20.:14:27.

scheme? There is not a budget as such as far as the area is

:14:27.:14:32.

concerned. We are looking to help 10.001st time buyers on to the

:14:32.:14:39.

property ladder nationwide up until 20th March 13 -- 10,000 first-time

:14:39.:14:46.

buyers. That is good news, let's hope the scheme has more success in

:14:46.:14:55.

the future. Thank you. Leicester City fans travelling to

:14:55.:14:57.

Nottingham for tomorrow's FA Cup third round match against Forest

:14:57.:15:01.

have been warned by police not to go to pubs around the stadium. Away

:15:01.:15:04.

fans will be allowed to drink within the City Ground and at the

:15:04.:15:07.

bar inside Notts County's Meadow Lane. But police say pubs between

:15:07.:15:10.

the station and the stadiums will not be letting Leicester fans in,

:15:10.:15:19.

before or after the match. Police in Leicester say they're

:15:19.:15:22.

worried about the number of arrests for drink-driving over Christmas.

:15:22.:15:24.

119 people were charged during the force's month-long campaign.

:15:24.:15:27.

Officers say the number of young people drinking and driving is

:15:27.:15:29.

particularly worrying. They're warning motorists that they will

:15:29.:15:31.

continue to target drivers who are over the limit.

:15:31.:15:34.

The Derbyshire student aiming to become the youngest Briton to ski

:15:34.:15:38.

to the South Pole says her expedition has been delayed. 21-

:15:38.:15:41.

year-old Bryony Balen had hoped to arrive by 17th January, exactly 100

:15:41.:15:46.

years after the first British expedition reached the pole. Bryony

:15:46.:15:49.

and her team have had to face temperatures as low as minus 20,

:15:49.:15:59.
:15:59.:16:00.

but she says the trip's still been a great experience.

:16:00.:16:03.

Just like the lady herself, it seems that the new Hollywood

:16:03.:16:05.

portrayal of Lady Thatcher is dividing opinion. Today one group

:16:05.:16:08.

in Derbyshire staged a protest to claim that the new Meryl Streep

:16:08.:16:12.

film The Iron Lady manages to rewrite history. But as you might

:16:12.:16:15.

imagine, it's received a much warmer reaction in her home town of

:16:15.:16:25.
:16:25.:16:26.

The honourable gentleman knows very well that we have no choice but to

:16:26.:16:32.

close the school. It is time in and its cinematic quality have already

:16:32.:16:36.

been questioned but today, it was the film's portrayal of Margaret

:16:36.:16:44.

Thatcher as a champion for women that was being queried. Maggie,

:16:44.:16:48.

Mikey, Out, Out, out. These women claim they are the real Iron Lady's.

:16:49.:16:54.

They supported miners in the North Derbyshire area during the miners'

:16:54.:16:58.

strike and together they came together to stage a protest outside

:16:58.:17:02.

their local cinema which is showing the new film. I have to protest at

:17:02.:17:07.

a film that appears to be rewriting history, that presents her as a

:17:07.:17:10.

heroine and her feminist icon. She, as far as I was concerned, never

:17:10.:17:15.

stood up for women at all. We do not want to sensationalise the life

:17:15.:17:19.

of a lady who caused so much trouble and devastated the lives of

:17:19.:17:23.

so many people in the past. And we think it is it too serious a

:17:23.:17:26.

subject to be trivialised by Hollywood. But unsurprising the

:17:27.:17:29.

pout, The Iron Lady which goes on general release today has received

:17:29.:17:35.

a much warmer reaction in muddy's home town of Grantham. It is good

:17:35.:17:39.

they made a film about her because it put Grantham on the map. We have

:17:39.:17:42.

got to be proud that she is from Grantham. It has not got a lot

:17:42.:17:48.

going for it so at least she was here at the right time. There is an

:17:48.:17:51.

argument for it being left until she has died but I think it is fair

:17:51.:17:59.

I am sure Grantham has got a lot more going for it.

:17:59.:18:02.

Still to come on the programme, a head-count down at the zoo. Do they

:18:02.:18:05.

have more meerkats or are they minus a meerkat or two? Apparently,

:18:05.:18:08.

it's not easy to tell, so at Twycross Zoo they're having a

:18:08.:18:18.
:18:18.:18:27.

Colin is here with the sport. Foxes, Rams... Meerkat as well apparently.

:18:27.:18:31.

Very good! It's one of the biggest weekends of

:18:31.:18:34.

the season for football fans, the third round of the FA Cup. And we

:18:34.:18:37.

have a mouthwatering game in prospect as Nottingham Forest host

:18:37.:18:40.

Leicester City. Leicester are certainly going to make a game of

:18:40.:18:43.

it and so are their fans. The Foxes will be taking 8,000 supporters

:18:43.:18:45.

which, incredibly, should be almost half the crowd. Here's Ross

:18:45.:18:54.

Leicester against Forest always arouses the passions but this FA

:18:54.:18:59.

Cup tie has really captured the imagination of those in blue.

:18:59.:19:04.

Forget about comparing the meerkats, this is about comparing the

:19:04.:19:07.

Leicester and Forest fans. Foxes are taking double the normal

:19:07.:19:11.

allocation to the City Ground and cove -- could even out in the home

:19:11.:19:18.

faithful. It is because of the Rover, it is incredible. Sport at

:19:18.:19:23.

heart. Bragging rights, the East Midlands want to beat them. We will

:19:23.:19:28.

definitely make a massive difference. Forest are struggling

:19:28.:19:32.

to sell that many tickets so for us to have got that many and fought

:19:32.:19:35.

them being the home side, it is showing what great support we have

:19:35.:19:40.

got. The Foxes may well need big backing. They have not won at the

:19:40.:19:46.

City Ground for 39 years. Throwing away a two goal lead at there in

:19:46.:19:49.

August but in Nigel Pearson, they have a manager who is going all out

:19:49.:19:57.

for Cup success. I still have huge respect for our domestic support.

:19:57.:20:03.

In the days now where European football I think is taking centre

:20:03.:20:07.

stage, I think for a majority of football fans in this country, the

:20:07.:20:14.

FA Cup still has huge meaning for. The League may be the priority for

:20:14.:20:19.

Leicester this season but try telling that to the 8,000 fans at

:20:19.:20:26.

So clearly down that end of the A46, they are more than up for it. What

:20:26.:20:32.

about the Reds? Well, they've had the perfect start to 2012. A

:20:32.:20:34.

victory, finally, ending a miserable run of results. And in

:20:34.:20:37.

Steve Cotterill's sqaud is a man very keen to make his comeback.

:20:37.:20:47.
:20:47.:21:02.

A familiar face, he is back where Over the years, I am trying to keep

:21:02.:21:06.

It is extra special for me to try to do it well whenever I play and

try to score as many goals as possible. His career has seen him

play in the Premier League and in China recently. Now he has returned

to familiar ground, rejoining his boyhood club until the end of the

season. It will bring us that physical strength, and he has a

happy thing of getting a goal or two. Mal is a man on a mission.

The man who scored Derby County's winner in the 2007 play-off final,

They go into the game as the form team in the country. Derby were the

Old Trafford was stunning. They have got the semi-final coming up

:22:34.:22:39.

and I hope they have got one eye on that but I am sure they will keep

And that complete my animal run with the Tigers.

:23:10.:23:14.

Just in time for our Animal list. There's a new census taking place,

:23:14.:23:20.

but it's not to count people. Instead, it's a tally of animals.

:23:20.:23:25.

It's all happening at Twycross Zoo. So are they missing meerkats? Have

:23:25.:23:35.
:23:35.:23:37.

a few monkeys gone over the wall? Right, one, two, 3, four elephant.

:23:37.:23:43.

Going pretty well so far. The big count is on. Exactly how

:23:43.:23:49.

many animals are there at Twycross Zoo? Meal, or to the point of

:23:49.:23:52.

counting the animals? It is important for us to know how many

:23:52.:23:56.

we have got in the zoo so the end- of-year stocktaking is a good way

:23:56.:24:03.

of doing that. I expecting any surprises? The keepers keep a check

:24:03.:24:06.

on a daily basis so they do know what is going on each day but we

:24:06.:24:11.

have had quite a few births that we have not found. Some of the

:24:21.:24:28.

There should be about 180 different species and they all have to be

The leaf cutter ants marched right through the toilet building.

3,000,001, 3 million and 2, keep still! 3 million and six leaf

cutter ants, there you go. thanks, but we can't one whole

colony as one. -- we count one whole Colin Nish. It will take

:25:03.:25:13.
:25:13.:25:20.

It is a bit like counting your outfit, an impossible job! And now

:25:20.:25:30.
:25:30.:25:31.

I love counting the near cats. I am sure all the animals have enjoyed a

:25:31.:25:35.

much quieter day that we have had today. We have certainly had

:25:35.:25:37.

lighter winds and the weekend as a whole will be a calmer affair than

:25:37.:25:42.

we have been used to. This was the sun rise this morning, absolutely

:25:42.:25:50.

stunning. Thank you to rob descending this in. It almost looks

:25:50.:25:57.

like the bird was jumping for joy as the sun was coming up. Send your

:25:57.:26:02.

e-mails in with your pictures. This morning, we woke up with the

:26:02.:26:07.

glorious sunrise and a much nicer way to start the day. We gradually

:26:07.:26:11.

saw an increase in cloud as we went through this afternoon. Bigger gaps

:26:11.:26:14.

between the isobars and that is why we have had these light of winds

:26:14.:26:18.

but we have still got a warm front followed by this cold front and

:26:18.:26:21.

this will be pushing through this evening. We could see some

:26:21.:26:25.

outbreaks of rain as we go through the next few hours. The cloud has

:26:25.:26:28.

increased this evening and with it, we are starting to see the light

:26:28.:26:34.

rain and drizzle at times with the wind strengthening with gusts of up

:26:34.:26:37.

to 35 mph, nothing as strong as what we had earlier in the week. It

:26:37.:26:41.

will become drier towards tomorrow morning and we will even see some

:26:41.:26:46.

clear skies before the end of the night. Temperatures dropping down

:26:46.:26:52.

to 6 or seven Celsius. Her as we start Saturday, we are in for a

:26:52.:26:57.

promising start. Lots of sunshine, particularly in the east towards

:26:57.:27:00.

Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. They keep most of the sunshine

:27:00.:27:03.

tomorrow and you will notice that cloud coming in and with it, you

:27:03.:27:07.

might just get some showers across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, the

:27:07.:27:13.

Peak District. For most, it will stay dry feeling a bit breezy at

:27:13.:27:17.

times but not particularly windy. Sunday it should stay mostly tribal

:27:17.:27:21.

with temperatures around nine Celsius put into the new week, we

:27:21.:27:24.

keep hold of the cloud but the temperatures are in double figures
