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

:00:02.:00:06.

Our top story tonight: A convicted conman is back in court

:00:06.:00:10.

for duping the elderly. Carl Mould took money for mobility aids that

:00:10.:00:15.

were never delivered. I felt a complete idiot for handing the

:00:15.:00:25.
:00:25.:00:27.

money over... As I said, I trusted the man.

:00:27.:00:31.

Also, tales of regret from women who did not turn up for their

:00:31.:00:36.

cervical smear test. I have got friends whose mothers have got to a

:00:36.:00:41.

certain age and now have cancer because they did not go for it.

:00:41.:00:46.

Plus, a mayor for Nottingham if the voters a vote yes. Who will be in

:00:47.:00:50.

the race for the top job? And why Melvis from Matlock wants

:00:50.:00:54.

to be buried with his hero. wasn't born a king and I haven't

:00:54.:01:04.
:01:04.:01:05.

lived like one, but, by God, I want Good evening and welcome to the

:01:05.:01:08.

programme. First tonight, the convicted conman back in court

:01:08.:01:11.

after his company took thousands of pounds from the elderly and

:01:11.:01:15.

vulnerable for mobility aids that were never delivered. A judge

:01:15.:01:18.

branded Carl Mould and his former business partner unfit to trade

:01:18.:01:23.

with old folk. And he warned them that if they appeared before him

:01:23.:01:33.

again, he'd send them to prison. Mike O'Sullivan has this report.

:01:33.:01:37.

Leaving the county court in Nottingham, convicted conman, Vic -

:01:37.:01:42.

- Carl Mould, in trouble again. This time for John be running a

:01:42.:01:45.

company that charged the elderly and vulnerable thousands of pounds

:01:45.:01:50.

for mobility age that never arrived. The judge said you were unfit to

:01:50.:01:54.

sell goods and services to the elderly in their own homes? What do

:01:54.:02:01.

you say? His business partner was more apologetic. I am very sorry to

:02:01.:02:06.

have been part of any business to do with that. I hope to rectify the

:02:06.:02:11.

situation. What went wrong? I went into business with the wrong person.

:02:11.:02:18.

Carl Mould, who called himself Nick, and his partner ran a business from

:02:18.:02:24.

Nottinghamshire. They would use a cynical ploy during visits to a

:02:24.:02:29.

customer's home. Winning up the office pretending to get a discount.

:02:29.:02:36.

-- phoning up. As complaints came in, the pair abandoned a firm. One

:02:36.:02:41.

victim was this 82-year-old, who handed over thousands of pounds for

:02:41.:02:46.

a reclining chair. I felt a complete idiot for handing the

:02:46.:02:53.

cheque over. But... As I say, I trusted the man. The judge said

:02:53.:02:56.

both men were unfit to sell goods and services to the elderly in

:02:56.:03:02.

their own homes. The sentence has been adjourned until 2014 and he

:03:02.:03:05.

said if they were ever in this sort of trouble again, he would send

:03:05.:03:10.

them to prison. Trading Standards have had at 120 complaints in 12

:03:10.:03:15.

months'. Obviously, we would have liked them to be sent to prison

:03:15.:03:18.

today but it is quite a good decision the judge has made because

:03:18.:03:23.

it has given them a three-year monitoring period, so if they

:03:23.:03:27.

commit an offence, they will be sent straight to prison. Both men

:03:27.:03:30.

said they have reimbursed the customers they have personally

:03:30.:03:33.

dealt with. And Mike is with us now. You've

:03:33.:03:37.

reported on the actions of Carl Mould before? Yes, that's right.

:03:37.:03:40.

East Midlands Today and our sister programme, Inside Out, have

:03:40.:03:43.

featured Carl Mould's activities before. In 2001, he was jailed for

:03:43.:03:47.

three years for deception. He was a builder back then who overcharged

:03:47.:03:53.

an elderly lady by around �30,000 for some dodgy building work. In

:03:53.:03:56.

2008, he was in the broadcasting game, charging thousands of pounds

:03:56.:04:01.

to train up people who wanted to work as TV presenters. The trouble

:04:01.:04:09.

was that many people were disappointed with the results. Then,

:04:09.:04:12.

despite being exposed on Inside Out, he set up a second media training

:04:12.:04:18.

firm. One man spent �5,000. The police investigated but the matter

:04:18.:04:28.
:04:28.:04:32.

has remained on file. Almost 1,000 women a year die from

:04:32.:04:35.

cervical cancer - a stark figure and perhaps enough to persuade you

:04:35.:04:38.

to go for a smear test when it's offered. In Derbyshire, 25% of

:04:38.:04:42.

women fail to attend their appointments. And when we asked

:04:42.:04:45.

women in the centre of Nottingham today, some of them admitted they

:04:45.:04:53.

failed to get regular checks, too. I go every time they asked me to go.

:04:53.:04:58.

When they send my letter I booked my appointment and I go. I didn't

:04:59.:05:03.

used to go but when I did and it was abnormal, is get me to death.

:05:03.:05:06.

Friends whose mothers have got was certain age have now got cancer

:05:06.:05:13.

because they did not go. But others took the option and did. I had one

:05:13.:05:19.

and then I didn't go for 13 years, but then I wanted to try for a baby

:05:19.:05:23.

so I went and got checked out. haven't had the time at the minute

:05:23.:05:27.

to go. Women have got to take responsibility for their health, so

:05:27.:05:32.

they should go. We always get letters reminding us to go. So they

:05:32.:05:35.

should. Mel Davies from Derbyshire put off

:05:35.:05:38.

her test by 18 months and now believes she could have received

:05:38.:05:40.

vital medical treatment much sooner if she'd made an appointment, as

:05:40.:05:49.

Geeta Pendse reports. On the road to recovery now, but

:05:49.:05:54.

three years ago, Mel Davies' life changed dramatically when she was

:05:54.:05:58.

diagnosed with cervical cancer. She had put off Bopara routine smear

:05:58.:06:03.

test 18 months, an action she now regrets. If I hadn't left is so

:06:03.:06:08.

long and had gone when they called me, I could have gone and my

:06:08.:06:11.

treatment might... It might not have been but it might have been

:06:11.:06:16.

less severe and just pre-cancerous cells that might not have developed

:06:16.:06:21.

into early stages of cancer. It has been tough for Mel and her partner.

:06:21.:06:25.

She now is unable to have children but now she is determined to stop

:06:25.:06:30.

other women making the same mistake. Everybody thinks it won't happen to

:06:30.:06:35.

them. I was like that. I didn't understand how important it was and

:06:36.:06:40.

that it would pick up pre-cancerous cells. The whole connection between

:06:40.:06:46.

the Tests and cancer. Figures from last year show around a quarter of

:06:46.:06:50.

women ignored letters inviting them to attend a smear test. Mel is

:06:50.:06:55.

hoping this will make women think twice and attend that appointment.

:06:55.:06:58.

Joining us from our Leicester studio now is Mike McHugh, from the

:06:58.:07:03.

city's Primary Care Trust. Good evening.

:07:03.:07:06.

Mel's story shows just how important it is for women to attend

:07:06.:07:11.

their screening appointments. is correct. We are very lucky to

:07:11.:07:16.

have a test like this. We have very few tests of cancer which can

:07:16.:07:20.

detect cancer at the precancer stage, which is what cervical

:07:20.:07:26.

cancer screening tests do. And yet we still have considerable numbers

:07:26.:07:33.

of women who do not come forward. Why do so many fail to turn up?

:07:33.:07:38.

think there is a variety of reasons. Sometimes his is to do with the

:07:38.:07:45.

procedure issues -- it is to do with. To be called, you must be

:07:45.:07:51.

registered with a GP. Your address that is recorded must be current.

:07:51.:07:56.

And a lot of patients move and then do not tell their GP they have

:07:56.:08:01.

moved. Or they changed address and don't say and they get lost in the

:08:01.:08:10.

system. The other big reason is to do with lack of understanding and

:08:10.:08:16.

awareness and appreciation of the benefits of having screening.

:08:16.:08:23.

Hopefully, tonight's report will put that to rest.

:08:23.:08:26.

A man from Derbyshire has been charged with manslaughter after the

:08:26.:08:29.

death of another man. It's alleged that he injected drugs into a 36-

:08:29.:08:33.

year-old man at a house in Derby Road in Ripley last September. The

:08:33.:08:36.

man subsequently died. The 40-year- old will appear before magistrates

:08:36.:08:38.

in February. Two men from Derbyshire who were

:08:39.:08:41.

jailed for using bullying and aggressive techniques to sell

:08:41.:08:45.

mobility aids have had their sentences reduced. Former director

:08:45.:08:49.

of REO Marketing Rodney Stone will now serve two years. Former Sales

:08:49.:08:53.

Manager Geoffrey Moore has had his term cut to two and-a-half years.

:08:53.:08:57.

The Court of Appeal ruled that they should have been sentenced on the

:08:57.:08:59.

basis that they neglected their duty, rather than having an

:08:59.:09:03.

involvement in what their staff were doing.

:09:03.:09:07.

You're watching East Midlands Today. Still to come, make the most of the

:09:07.:09:14.

mild weather, as there's a change on the way. Yes. The milder weather

:09:14.:09:19.

hardly had a chance to come in before it is on its way out again

:09:19.:09:23.

her and we are turning wet and windy tonight. More weather towards

:09:23.:09:30.

Nearly 350 cases of harrassment on social networking sites were

:09:30.:09:35.

reported to Leicestershire Police last year. It comes as the

:09:35.:09:38.

Leicester City striker David Nugent has been receiving a series of

:09:38.:09:40.

abusive messages on Twitter from a Southampton supporter, following

:09:40.:09:48.

their match this week. An internet expert believes this type of

:09:48.:09:57.

behaviour will be less common in the future. The internet has

:09:57.:10:01.

evolved very quickly before we have even thought about how it changes

:10:01.:10:06.

people's behaviour, so I think as we think more about it and change

:10:06.:10:10.

the design and learn more about how we ought to behave online, I hope

:10:10.:10:15.

this will change. And we need to be mindful that people can be quite

:10:15.:10:18.

positive online as well. Well, it's not just social

:10:18.:10:21.

networking sites that are a source of hate crimes. A project set up to

:10:21.:10:23.

monitor hate incidents in Leicestershire recorded more than

:10:23.:10:27.

1,000 in a 12-month period. Now a new campaign is underway to

:10:27.:10:28.

encourage people, particularly those with mental health

:10:28.:10:38.
:10:38.:10:39.

difficulties, to report when they've been bullied or harassed.

:10:39.:10:45.

Fiona Pilkington killed herself and her 18-year-old daughter in 2007

:10:45.:10:48.

after a decade of violence, vandalism and taunts by local

:10:48.:10:53.

teenagers. More than four years later, hate crimes are still a

:10:53.:10:56.

problem for Leicestershire. The monitoring project has recorded

:10:56.:11:02.

more than 1,200 incidents in a year. I have had trouble if I have been

:11:02.:11:06.

out somewhere and people have made comments about me being

:11:06.:11:14.

schizophrenic. You know, being crazy and things like that. Here

:11:14.:11:19.

they come to give me pain, here they come to give me grief, let

:11:19.:11:23.

alone the heartache, I never thought they would be so cruel...

:11:23.:11:29.

Too Reza's experiences inspired her to write this poem about harassment.

:11:29.:11:34.

She has helped to set up a support group. Today's conference brought

:11:34.:11:39.

together health professionals, support groups, councils and the

:11:39.:11:42.

police. They focused on what else can be done to help hate crime

:11:42.:11:50.

victims, particularly those with health and mental health issues.

:11:50.:11:54.

gives the message that we, the statutory bodies, do take it

:11:54.:11:58.

seriously and we want to help them and bring the people to account to

:11:58.:12:03.

hurt them on a daily basis. message of this year's campaign is

:12:03.:12:07.

that nobody should suffer in silence.

:12:07.:12:11.

London's got one. So has Leicester and Mansfield. Now an all-powerful

:12:11.:12:13.

directly-elected mayor could be running Nottingham within months if

:12:14.:12:20.

city voters back the idea. The Government today said mayoral

:12:20.:12:23.

elections for Nottingham and ten other big English cities would be

:12:23.:12:30.

brought forward and held in November. But all that depends on a

:12:30.:12:34.

Yes vote for the whole idea in a referendum in early May. So is big

:12:34.:12:38.

political change on the cards for Nottingham? Let's find out from our

:12:38.:12:47.

political editor, John Hess, who is outside Nottingham Council House.

:12:47.:12:51.

David Cameron has had some political bust-ups with the Labour

:12:51.:12:57.

leadership here before. Now he's facing another. That's because

:12:57.:13:00.

Labour Nottingham is to campaign for a No vote in the mayoral

:13:00.:13:03.

referendum in the city. Undaunted, the Government today pressed ahead

:13:03.:13:07.

with its plans for London-style mayors for our big cities. If the

:13:07.:13:10.

people of Nottingham vote yes, Nottingham's very own Mayor Boris

:13:10.:13:13.

or Ken could be in charge of this city and the council's multi-

:13:13.:13:23.
:13:23.:13:34.

If you look around the world, most cities of the kind of standing at

:13:34.:13:37.

Nottingham has are led by individuals who have a clear

:13:37.:13:43.

mandate. They punch above their weight on its national and

:13:43.:13:46.

international levels. We think it is right for the people of

:13:46.:13:55.

Nottingham to make a decision as to whether they want that, too. Other

:13:55.:13:57.

Midland cities such as Birmingham and Coventry will also have a

:13:57.:14:01.

referendum in May on whether to have a mayor in charge. So why is

:14:01.:14:03.

Nottingham's current council leader, Jon Collins, so opposed? The Labour

:14:03.:14:06.

group in the city council will be campaigning very vigorously against

:14:06.:14:12.

the proposals because at �1 million extra cost over the next few years,

:14:12.:14:17.

we just think it is a waste of money and we think that local

:14:17.:14:19.

people will recognise that and not supported.

:14:19.:14:29.
:14:29.:14:34.

So, John, who are the likely candidates? I have to tell you that

:14:34.:14:37.

one national newspaper said Ken Clarke might throw his hat into the

:14:37.:14:45.

ring! I wouldn't put money on that! Alan Simpson and other big names.

:14:45.:14:50.

Even the fashion designer, Sir Paul Smith. And how about a job share?

:14:50.:14:55.

Torvill and Dean? I wouldn't rule it out. The speculation won't end

:14:55.:15:03.

there. Campaigners are fighting to stop

:15:03.:15:07.

the sale of a historic building and claim the council has no right to

:15:07.:15:10.

sell it. The Gilstrap Centre at Newark Castle was given to the town

:15:10.:15:13.

by Sir William Gilstrap. It's currently used as a tourist

:15:13.:15:16.

information centre. But the District Council wants to sell the

:15:16.:15:19.

building to the County Council, who plan to turn it into a registry

:15:19.:15:29.

office. Once it is sold and goes out of the scheme of the Trust, it

:15:29.:15:34.

is then fair game. Once Notts County Council owns it, it is

:15:34.:15:38.

outside the Trust, therefore it can be used for any purpose whatsoever.

:15:38.:15:48.
:15:48.:15:50.

It could become a cafe. A mother who campaigned for 26

:15:50.:15:54.

years to bring her child's killer to justice has decided to tell the

:15:54.:15:57.

world her story by publishing a book about the murder of her

:15:57.:16:00.

daughter Colette Aram. Colette was just 16 and a trainee hairdresser

:16:00.:16:02.

when she was abducted in the Nottinghamshire village of Keyworth.

:16:02.:16:06.

She was raped and strangled before her body was dumped in a field. The

:16:06.:16:09.

BBC's first ever Crimewatch programme featured the case, but it

:16:09.:16:11.

wasn't until 2010 that Paul Hutchinson was convicted of murder.

:16:11.:16:14.

After more than two decades, Jacqui Kirby has finally managed to find

:16:14.:16:17.

some closure, and she joined us here in the studio earlier this

:16:17.:16:24.

week. Why did you write the book? Because

:16:24.:16:29.

I felt it was the one last thing I could do for Colette. And I also

:16:29.:16:32.

wanted to give hope to other families that have gone through or

:16:32.:16:36.

will go through what we went through for 26 years, to never give

:16:36.:16:42.

up hope. And also to give Joe public an insight into the kind of

:16:42.:16:47.

things that happen within families when something like this happens.

:16:47.:16:51.

It is the devastation it leaves behind. It has a knock-on effect

:16:51.:16:56.

within the family unit. It is an incredibly difficult book to read

:16:56.:17:00.

for all sorts of reasons, but you think there is some positivity in

:17:00.:17:06.

it because there is a message of hope in the end? Yes, I think so.

:17:06.:17:12.

For me, it was a kind of healing process as well. I was going to ask

:17:12.:17:17.

you that. Did you feel that by the end of writing the book, you were

:17:17.:17:21.

in a better place than at the beginning? Are absolutely. Off and

:17:21.:17:28.

I was sat at the computer writing it in tears. -- often. But since I

:17:28.:17:32.

have written the book I can talk about the events and about Colette

:17:32.:17:37.

much more easily than before. I couldn't have sat for any length of

:17:37.:17:41.

time and spoken to anybody. When I did interviews before, they would

:17:41.:17:45.

have to stop the interview because I would break down. But since I

:17:45.:17:50.

have done that, I feel I have the ability to talk about it. It might

:17:50.:17:55.

sound strange and I can't explain it myself. There is no forgiveness

:17:55.:18:02.

in this book, is there? No. How can you forgive someone for doing that?

:18:02.:18:06.

He not only destroyed her life, but he destroyed our lives as well.

:18:06.:18:13.

you said you hoped it would give other families hope? I hope so.

:18:13.:18:19.

Never give up. Always to hope that eventually, somebody... The

:18:19.:18:23.

perpetrator will be brought to justice. It took a long time and

:18:23.:18:28.

happened in the end. Thank you so much for coming in. Thank you.

:18:28.:18:32.

Still to come on the programme, who lives in a house like this? We meet

:18:32.:18:35.

the man from Matlock who lives for Elvis Presely, and now he wants to

:18:36.:18:45.
:18:46.:18:52.

Before that, we have the sport. Thank you. Good evening.

:18:52.:18:55.

Starting with rugby, and are the days when Leicester Tigers are a

:18:55.:18:59.

dominant force in European rugby over? The club's Director of Rugby

:18:59.:19:02.

says a salary cap imposed on English clubs means this country

:19:02.:19:05.

will continue to struggle. The Tigers' European campaign ended at

:19:05.:19:07.

the weekend, with the quarter finals dominated by Irish and

:19:07.:19:11.

French teams, who are free to have a much higher wage bill, as Jeremy

:19:11.:19:12.

Nicholas reports. Leicester have developed a taste

:19:12.:19:15.

for European travel, with the club having won the Heineken Cup twice.

:19:15.:19:20.

But this year, they are out already. Perhaps they were not good enough

:19:20.:19:26.

this year but in the end, we have played six, won four. Despite a big

:19:26.:19:31.

win at the weekend, tigers are out of Europe. Only Saracens went

:19:31.:19:35.

through out of the England teams. Are we missing out because of the

:19:35.:19:42.

salary cap? French clubs have a higher salary cap of 7 million each

:19:42.:19:46.

season. Edinburgh and Cardiff are joined by Saracens, the only

:19:46.:19:50.

English club in the knockout stages, but English clubs have to keep

:19:50.:19:54.

their wage bill to 4 million. have to be realistic in that, like

:19:54.:19:58.

any sport, professional sport is about how much money you have and

:19:58.:20:03.

what you do with it. If you don't have the funding, then it will be

:20:03.:20:07.

difficult against teams that do have the funding. In previous

:20:07.:20:12.

seasons, the Tigers have top their group. But this season, despite

:20:12.:20:18.

having topped four of their groups, they are out. We were stung. It is

:20:19.:20:26.

a shame. With the regionalised Celtic sides now more likely to

:20:26.:20:32.

feature every season, this is what he said. When you battle hard to

:20:32.:20:36.

make sure you have a qualifying Cup the next season, you have to put

:20:36.:20:41.

draw with Preston, as Kirsty Edwards reports.

Notts County came into this game looking to put an end to their

there wasn't too much to get the fans on their feet. If the odd

There are now 11 points off the play-offs and 10 points off the

relegation zone. We're very sad to report the death

Now, there are fans of Elvis, and then there's Matlock's "Melvis"!

:23:25.:23:27.

Yes, that's the nickname enjoyed by Elvis Presley superfan Melvyn

:23:27.:23:32.

Haymes. He's been toasting the memory of The King, who would have

:23:32.:23:36.

just had his 77th birthday had he lived. Melvyn has turned his

:23:37.:23:39.

Derbyshire home into a shrine to the singing superstar, and even

:23:39.:23:49.

wants to be buried with him! James Roberson explains.

:23:49.:23:59.
:23:59.:23:59.

At first glance, this flat looks almost normal. But it hardly takes

:23:59.:24:03.

a closer inspection to see who really dominates here. The Matlock

since he was 12. There is no stopping yet because I have got

more room yet. Two or three suitcases and a good start in them

:24:19.:24:25.

yet! It has gone on to become an obsession with everything about the

:24:25.:24:30.

singer, who died prematurely in 1977. Even that has gone into a

:24:30.:24:35.

home-made coffee table. Everybody in Matlock knows that Melvyn is mad

:24:35.:24:41.

about all things Elvis. They nicknamed me Melvis and it has

:24:41.:24:46.

stuck with me for years. But if Melvyn loves Elvis, the same cannot

be said of his family! My daughter says, when I go, this is going with

me. Everything will go! They are burying it all could be missing a

trick. Melvyn has spent thousands on the collection. However, when he

:25:05.:25:10.

does finally go, he has the music all planned. I would like to be

dressed in my suit, which I had made, and in a cardboard cut-out

:25:15.:25:24.

placed on the lid of the coffin. I wasn't born a King and I have never

lived like one, but, by God, I want to go out like one!

:25:33.:25:38.

Well, it is literally his funeral. He can do what he wants!

:25:38.:25:43.

That is true. But hopefully, not a long time yet.

:25:43.:25:48.

We were trying to think of Elvis songs to go with the weather.

:25:48.:25:58.
:25:58.:26:02.

Thank you. We have had this lovely photo from Tom, just before his

:26:02.:26:06.

camera battery ran out. Thank you for that. The cloud is increasing

:26:06.:26:13.

and we have had rain sitting over here, bringing a soaking today.

:26:13.:26:18.

Some showery bursts of rain but the wind will also be a big feature and

:26:18.:26:24.

we could see gusts of up to 50 mph. It will be tracking its way to the

:26:24.:26:28.

East into the early hours of the morning and producing some heavy

:26:28.:26:33.

rainfall if you are travelling anywhere overnight. Some colder air

:26:33.:26:42.

coming in overnight but the ice is further West. First thing tomorrow,

:26:42.:26:46.

the band of rain is still with us, giving us a very wet start to the

:26:46.:26:52.

day. Still very windy as well and a few showers around. You might even

:26:52.:26:57.

notice the odd snow shower as well, affecting the Peak District. We

:26:57.:27:02.

could even have hail and thunder as well. The rain will ease off later

:27:03.:27:08.

in the day, leaving sunshine and fewer showers as well. A maximum

tomorrow of a degrees. The strength of the wind will make it feel

:27:12.:27:18.

colder, however. Quite a bit of cloud on Friday and the chance of a

:27:18.:27:22.

few wintry showers as well, but as we get to the weekend, we have high

:27:22.:27:27.

pressure coming in from the South and a warm front trying to come in
