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

:00:07.:00:10.

Our top story tonight: the Government's under fire over the

:00:10.:00:19.

death of a serviceman in Afghanistan.

:00:19.:00:23.

For family accused the MoD of catastrophic failures. -- the

:00:23.:00:31.

family. We hope the lessons learnt will be taken up and used to

:00:31.:00:38.

advantage to savour their lives. Also tonight: a Nordic nightmare.

:00:38.:00:44.

They couple's dream of a new life in Norway lies in ruins. Suicidal,

:00:44.:00:48.

really. The whole thing has completely ruined our lives.

:00:48.:00:53.

Plus, attacked in class but did the punch that almost Kilcullen

:00:53.:00:57.

actually saved his life? And join me for a live rocket

:00:57.:01:07.
:01:07.:01:14.

Good evening. Welcome to Wednesday's programme. First

:01:14.:01:17.

tonight, a grieving mother has said there is a catastrophic failure by

:01:17.:01:22.

the Government to meet the requirements of our troops. Teresa

:01:22.:01:25.

Woods was speaking after the inquest into the death of her son

:01:25.:01:29.

Corporal Marcin Wojtak, from Leicestershire.

:01:29.:01:33.

He died in Afghanistan in a roadside bombing in Afghanistan.

:01:33.:01:38.

The coroner ruled he had been unlawfully killed by insurgents.

:01:38.:01:41.

Our reporter has been following the inquest and joins us now from

:01:41.:01:48.

Loughborough. Good evening. The coroner said that

:01:48.:01:52.

his death was a tragic event. He died having been in Afghanistan for

:01:52.:01:57.

just over two weeks. He was killed by a roadside bomb. It has been a

:01:57.:02:02.

complicated inquest, agonising for the family, his mother sobbed as

:02:02.:02:08.

the verdict was delivered. His wing commander described him as

:02:08.:02:11.

an amazing human being. It was an honour to be his commanding officer,

:02:11.:02:15.

he said. Throughout the inquest, his colleagues have paid tribute to

:02:15.:02:23.

him. The questions were answered. He died in October 2009. He was on

:02:23.:02:32.

a routine patrol. His vehicle hit a roadside bomb. This is one of the

:02:32.:02:36.

lightly armoured vehicles. Questions have been raised as to

:02:36.:02:40.

its suitability. The vehicles were withdrawn six months after he died.

:02:40.:02:45.

He used to joke that they were like a coffin on wheels. He and his

:02:45.:02:48.

colleagues had been waiting for these two vehicles, mastiffs,

:02:48.:02:56.

heavily protected vehicles weighing 28 tonnes. To date, they have been

:02:56.:02:59.

208 strikes on a master finds no one has been killed. During the

:02:59.:03:03.

inquest, it emerged that he would probably have survived if he had

:03:03.:03:08.

been in a massive but supply lines were haphazard and no one knew for

:03:08.:03:11.

certain when they would arrive. They did arrive 48 hours after he

:03:11.:03:17.

died. After the verdict, his family spoke outside court. It is not

:03:18.:03:22.

surprising that so one met their deaths in effect off. This vehicle

:03:22.:03:27.

was no longer suitable to deal with the increased threat of Afghanistan

:03:27.:03:32.

and that was abolished as well today. I feel there has been a

:03:32.:03:36.

catastrophic failure by the Government to meet the requirements

:03:36.:03:44.

for our troops. Our family is heartbroken in losing him. It's a

:03:44.:03:51.

loss from which we will never recover. He was a kind and loving

:03:51.:03:56.

Gentleman and a gentle man who has paid the ultimate price for our

:03:56.:04:02.

freedom. And we will really, truly this and for ever. He did not die

:04:02.:04:08.

in vain. He was a brave young man and roast all the challenges placed

:04:08.:04:14.

before him. His early talent had been recognised with the award of

:04:14.:04:17.

acting corporal Reich. His girl friend said he had bright plans for

:04:17.:04:25.

the future. We were in the process of buying a house, we had discussed

:04:25.:04:28.

Weddings and what we wanted. He would leave hence for engagement

:04:28.:04:34.

rings around the house! We all knew it was coming. We just needed the

:04:34.:04:44.
:04:44.:04:44.

time. These are the last lone -- last known photographs, taking --

:04:45.:04:48.

taken in the vehicle in which he died.

:04:48.:04:52.

The coroner is going to write to the MoD, asking for confirmation

:04:52.:04:55.

that the vehicles have been withdrawn in certain areas. Outside

:04:55.:05:00.

court this afternoon, his mother accused the RAF of closing ranks,

:05:00.:05:03.

as evidence given today said that Master Oats, the vehicles which

:05:03.:05:10.

could have saved him, were available a week after he died. --

:05:10.:05:17.

Mastiffs. We will leave it there but thank

:05:17.:05:22.

you. Next tonight, a young teenager left

:05:22.:05:25.

fighting for his life after being assaulted by a classmate is back at

:05:25.:05:28.

school. Callum Massey was knocked unconscious and spent three weeks

:05:28.:05:33.

in hospital. Callum's life was saved by the

:05:33.:05:36.

quick action of specially trained school staff and bizarrely the

:05:36.:05:39.

punch that almost killed him could well have actually saved his life.

:05:39.:05:45.

It uncovered a serious heart condition.

:05:45.:05:51.

Happy to be back in the classroom at last. It is exciting because I

:05:51.:05:56.

can see my friends and by teachers. Cullen is 13 and has Asperger's.

:05:56.:06:01.

Last September, he was punched in their head by another schoolboy in

:06:01.:06:06.

the classroom. Luckily, the Academy principle is keen on first aid

:06:06.:06:11.

training for staff. It was the worst nightmare you could ever

:06:11.:06:16.

imagine and I'm thankful that Dr Edwards has -- had the notion to

:06:16.:06:21.

send his staff on Thursday it because it literally saves lives.

:06:21.:06:27.

Without Eddie, my son would not be here. It was a surreal moment. The

:06:27.:06:30.

child was in front of me, unconscious, not breathing and

:06:30.:06:35.

dying. I had to make a decision on what I was going to do next. Are

:06:35.:06:41.

sent him... In hospital, doctors discovered that he had a

:06:41.:06:45.

potentially life-threatening heart condition. It was previously

:06:45.:06:49.

undetected. The people who hate him is not at the Academy any more but

:06:49.:06:53.

he has not been charged with a crime. Because of the circumstances

:06:53.:06:57.

and because of the boys' ages, Nottinghamshire police tried a new

:06:57.:07:00.

approach. It is called restorative justice to what they did was work

:07:00.:07:04.

closely with both the boys' families so the boy who hit Callum

:07:04.:07:09.

is fully aware that what he did was wrong in the heat of the moment. He

:07:09.:07:15.

can now move forward without a criminal record. He has suffered

:07:15.:07:19.

enough. It has not just affected our family, it has affected his

:07:19.:07:23.

family as well. I think he has learnt from his mistakes. Lessons

:07:23.:07:28.

have been learnt all round. Now all Callum wants to do is to carry on

:07:28.:07:38.
:07:38.:07:39.

with his lessons at the school he enjoys.

:07:39.:07:46.

Coming up on the programme: higher, lower. Sally takes a look at our

:07:46.:07:55.

see-sawing winter weather. The ice on that this lake has

:07:55.:08:05.
:08:05.:08:05.

melted but will this mild spell Unemployment in the East Midlands

:08:05.:08:10.

is rising again. That's after months of bucking the national

:08:10.:08:18.

trend. The latest quarterly figures reveal that the jobless total

:08:18.:08:27.

increased by 7,000 to 190,000. That's an unemployment rate of 8.3%,

:08:27.:08:32.

still slightly lower than the national average.

:08:32.:08:34.

Let's find out more from Westminster and our Political

:08:34.:08:36.

Editor. Recent sets of quarterly figures

:08:36.:08:39.

for unemployment in the East Midlands may have given a false

:08:39.:08:42.

sense of security. Last year, and employers in the West Midlands

:08:42.:08:46.

started to increase but in the East Midlands, it looks like we were

:08:46.:08:54.

able to ride the economic downturn. That is not the case today. The

:08:54.:08:56.

regional TUC says the East Midlands figures are, truly depressing and

:08:56.:09:02.

worse than expected. It's certainly not the start to 2012 that

:09:03.:09:07.

coalition ministers would have wanted. So I asked the employment

:09:07.:09:09.

minister Chris Grayling why he thought finding jobs in the East

:09:09.:09:12.

Midlands was getting more difficult. The East Midlands has faced

:09:12.:09:15.

particular challenges. It has depended upon manufacturing in the

:09:15.:09:21.

past. We want to see business growth encouraged through changes

:09:21.:09:26.

to red tape and regulation, through targeted financial support. We went

:09:26.:09:29.

to see that to come -- come together so that prisoners can grow

:09:29.:09:36.

and develop. Isn't there a real danger that the push will get young

:09:36.:09:40.

people and student into work but for people over 50, they will end

:09:40.:09:44.

up on the unemployment scrapheap? We have specific measures targeting

:09:44.:09:50.

young people but we have first-rate support for those who are over 50.

:09:50.:09:54.

The work programme is offering specialist support to those

:09:55.:09:57.

jobseeker's from specialist organisations to what only paid

:09:57.:10:00.

when they are successful at getting somebody in to work and helping

:10:00.:10:04.

them stay there. Alongside that, we have schemes like the new

:10:05.:10:08.

enterprise allowance to help people move from employment into self-

:10:08.:10:11.

employment. They are particularly relevant to older people with

:10:11.:10:15.

experience that can be taken into building them and this has.

:10:15.:10:18.

While the headlines in the papers tomorrow will once again focus on

:10:18.:10:22.

the problems of young people trying to get work, the figures in the

:10:22.:10:26.

East Midlands, when you drill down, reveal that for the over-fifties,

:10:26.:10:29.

there are now getting on for one third of that age group who won a

:10:29.:10:37.

finding it difficult to get work. As we've heard, many older workers

:10:37.:10:42.

say finding another job is extremely difficult. It's an issue

:10:42.:10:45.

we've been looking at this week on East Midlands Today, focusing on

:10:45.:10:51.

the reality of being over 50 and out of work.

:10:51.:10:54.

Today Sarah Teale, in the third of her special reports, has been to

:10:54.:10:57.

one company which says it wants to employ more older staff because of

:10:58.:11:02.

the many benefits they bring to the firm.

:11:02.:11:07.

Trevor knows just how hard it can be finding a job in that your 50s.

:11:07.:11:11.

The 57 year-old wanted to leave the late nights of the sales industry

:11:11.:11:16.

behind him but he had to spend two years hunting for a different job.

:11:16.:11:20.

In the for market place, it is not easy for so one of my age because

:11:20.:11:24.

you are competing with people of younger years. Would you do speak

:11:24.:11:28.

to employers, they may be thinking of the longer term but also

:11:28.:11:34.

thinking about you being past it. Eventually, Trevor got a job here,

:11:34.:11:38.

domestic and General in at Nottingham. You can show that you

:11:39.:11:42.

are worthwhile and bring your experience to the job, rather than

:11:42.:11:47.

your youth and inexperience. Call centres traditionally employ large

:11:47.:11:51.

numbers of younger workers and they have a high staff turnover. But

:11:51.:11:57.

here, the company tries to recruit and retain older workers, who they

:11:57.:12:03.

say bring experience, loyalty and reliability. The company says it

:12:03.:12:09.

recognises the value that mature workers can bring and not just that,

:12:09.:12:12.

they firmly believe that older members of staff have a positive

:12:12.:12:19.

influence on the younger people who work here as well. A also, older

:12:19.:12:22.

workers and the younger workers make a great team the balance.

:12:22.:12:25.

older workers often so that working with younger people queued for the

:12:25.:12:30.

young. Older workers obviously have greater loyalty to the company. You

:12:30.:12:34.

tend to find that sickness absence is often lower and they will stay

:12:34.:12:39.

with us longer as well which is great. A positive message which are

:12:39.:12:47.

older workers hope more firms will heed.

:12:47.:12:50.

A new multi-million pound project led by Leicester University aims to

:12:50.:12:54.

use space technology to help ease road congestion. The scheme began

:12:54.:12:59.

at the National Space Centre today. The plan is to develop new traffic

:12:59.:13:05.

management systems which could cut pollution and increase road safety.

:13:05.:13:11.

The �2.4 million project will be funded by the European Commission.

:13:11.:13:13.

Nottinghamshire police are hunting for an armed robber who's targetted

:13:13.:13:17.

shops and old people's homes. The attacks happened in West Bridgford

:13:17.:13:20.

and Edwalton. Police are warning people to be on the lookout for the

:13:20.:13:25.

man who was filmed on CCTV. He's been seen with a knife and a gun.

:13:25.:13:31.

At the weekend he targeted two care homes.

:13:31.:13:34.

A couple say they've been driven to despair, after their dream of a new

:13:34.:13:38.

life in Norway was shattered. Paul and Andrea Hodgkinson sold

:13:38.:13:41.

everything they owned in Derbyshire, to embrace a new life in rural

:13:41.:13:50.

Norway. But they say the government there has tried to drive them out.

:13:50.:13:53.

The idyllic Norwegian home they bought may be forcibly sold and

:13:53.:14:00.

they're facing living in a tent back in Derbyshire.

:14:00.:14:07.

We first met Paul and Andrea in the 1990s, had their horse blogging

:14:07.:14:12.

business. They had long dreamt of owning their own farm and in 2006

:14:12.:14:18.

Sport this apparently idyllic property in Norway. -- Court. Even

:14:18.:14:24.

in winter, it looked beautiful. This winter, the couple are back on

:14:24.:14:30.

the only piece of land they have left in Derbyshire. The Norwegian

:14:30.:14:34.

government department say their farm in no way is being forcibly

:14:34.:14:39.

sold. There are not telling us how nor what happens of possessions.

:14:39.:14:43.

Removed personal and business items over there, never expecting the

:14:43.:14:49.

saga like this. A the couple had hoped to run a B&B and logging

:14:49.:14:52.

business from the farm that a long running dispute with the Ministry

:14:52.:14:56.

of Transport said that -- meant they couldn't move in. Now they say

:14:56.:15:00.

that because they have not lived in, they must go. Then they have to

:15:00.:15:07.

live on this land in a tent. But as a wood burner. It is not really

:15:07.:15:12.

suitable as somewhere to live. Hodgkinson's have started a paper

:15:12.:15:16.

and online petition but with no money, they cannot mount a legal

:15:16.:15:19.

challenge to the Norwegian government. It should not have got

:15:19.:15:22.

the stage and they don't seem to respect the fact that we are

:15:22.:15:29.

fighting it by ourselves. Over a number of years, it has been very

:15:29.:15:34.

stressful and is a big worry. Suicidal, really. The whole thing

:15:34.:15:37.

has completely ruined our lives. This is a government that gives out

:15:37.:15:46.

the Nobel Peace Prize. I think it is a disgrace.

:15:46.:15:49.

A spokeswoman for the Norwegian Agricultural Authority said she

:15:49.:15:51.

understood the Hodgkinsons had been warned several times that under

:15:51.:15:54.

Norwegian law they must live at the farm permanently to keep it. Since

:15:54.:16:04.
:16:04.:16:06.

they haven't, the law stipulates the farm must be sold.

:16:06.:16:09.

A new centre is to be built for patients from the East Midlands who

:16:09.:16:17.

have a chronic, debilitating, life limiting condition.

:16:17.:16:19.

The Nottingham hospitals charity has begun a �2.1 million

:16:19.:16:21.

fundraising campaign towards the development which aims to provide a

:16:21.:16:24.

homely place for patients with cystic fibrosis.

:16:24.:16:29.

Stewart says he dreads hospital but with cystic fibrosis, is a fact of

:16:29.:16:35.

life. At Nottingham City hospital, patients are put on a generous

:16:35.:16:39.

spirit reward. It is not ideal. These patients have a different set

:16:39.:16:46.

of new routes -- set of needs and the nurses are torn in terms of

:16:46.:16:49.

where they direct their care. Cystic fibrosis affects around 9000

:16:49.:16:54.

people in the UK. It affects the glance that produce body fluids. It

:16:54.:16:58.

hinders the functions of organs like the lungs. Average life

:16:58.:17:04.

expectancy is 36 years. This is the dream, a perfect -- purpose-built

:17:04.:17:09.

centre in the East Midlands. The NHS is putting in �4.5 million. A

:17:09.:17:12.

fund-raising appeal has been started to get the rest. Building

:17:12.:17:18.

should start here later this year. By the way, the parking will be

:17:18.:17:22.

replaced by new spaces created near by. When I heard the news, it was

:17:22.:17:26.

amazing. I have been coming to this hospital since I was three years

:17:26.:17:32.

old. Stewart has never met a never adult cystic fibrosis patients.

:17:32.:17:38.

They are kept apart because of the risk of passing on infections. In

:17:38.:17:41.

the UK is, they are hoping people will be able to talk to each other

:17:41.:17:46.

using video conferencing. At the minute, a there are social networks.

:17:46.:17:52.

There's only so much you can do. The aim to make hospital with the

:17:52.:17:58.

extras feel more like home. It's expected to generate millions

:17:58.:18:06.

of pounds of business with people attending from all over the world.

:18:06.:18:09.

The Agricultural Machinery Show at Newark Showground is the country's

:18:09.:18:12.

largest fair of its kind. But this year, the emphasis has

:18:12.:18:16.

been security. From a combine harvesters to muck

:18:16.:18:21.

spreaders, everything you might need on a farm on the -- at this

:18:21.:18:25.

event. Over two days, thousands of people are expected to visit but

:18:25.:18:28.

attention this time round was turned to ways in which farmers can

:18:28.:18:33.

protect their property. Last year, there was a 61 % rise in

:18:33.:18:37.

agricultural crime in the East Midlands, costing the region near

:18:37.:18:40.

the �10 million. But the forefront of everyone's minds is security.

:18:41.:18:46.

Much of the machinery you see here is usually expensive. Combine Farm

:18:47.:18:55.

vistas of �350,000. -- combine harvesters. Regrettably, rural

:18:55.:19:00.

crime is on the increase because fields and farms are large and

:19:00.:19:04.

difficult to Secure. Many farmers here know only too well what it is

:19:05.:19:10.

like to be targeted by thieves. had a trailer pinched last year, a

:19:10.:19:15.

plant trailer. That was 10 grounds with. Somebody came with a tractor

:19:15.:19:19.

and took it away. Kit with �1 billion is stolen every week in the

:19:19.:19:24.

UK. Security companies are coming up with new techniques to deal with

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:35.

a problem. -- kit worth �1 million. The way our scheme works is by

:19:35.:19:40.

using technology to give our sector, each piece of equipment, a unique

:19:40.:19:43.

and indelible identity which renders it relatively useless to

:19:43.:19:53.

the fees. They cannot shifted on. - - shift it on. To a security is

:19:53.:19:57.

more important than ever to farmers. It is hoped that this will put them

:19:58.:20:07.

back in control of their livelihoods.

:20:07.:20:17.
:20:17.:20:21.

Good evening. For Leicester City, it's a taste of what's possible.

:20:21.:20:24.

For Nottingham Forest, the question is where do they go from here?

:20:24.:20:27.

Leicester had a convincing 4-0 win over Forest in the FA Cup replay

:20:27.:20:30.

last night. But for all Leicester's domination, Forest can still ask

:20:30.:20:35.

what might have been after a miss as bad as many people have seen.

:20:35.:20:39.

Thanks to these two, it was goalless in the original tie but it

:20:39.:20:43.

did not stay that way for long last night. The tempo was fast from the

:20:43.:20:49.

start and his cross was turned into the net. Six minutes gone, 1-0

:20:49.:20:55.

Leicester. Forrester are having a torrid time. They were hanging on.

:20:55.:21:02.

-- Forest. When they did break, they had chances. Two yards out,

:21:02.:21:06.

what was he thinking? Finally, Leicester turned their domination

:21:06.:21:10.

into a bigger league. A swift move from defence and at last, a goal

:21:10.:21:17.

for Jermaine Beckford. Forest still managed to conjure up a chance but

:21:17.:21:22.

Leicester looked more likely to score and they did. It was Beckford

:21:22.:21:27.

again. This was a performance to warm up the fans on an Alice cold

:21:27.:21:34.

fans. Leicester went on to win 4-0. It was their biggest win over

:21:34.:21:39.
