This is East Midlands Today. Our top story. The blood test that can

:00:10.:00:15.

find it can serve five years before any symptoms it shows.

:00:15.:00:19.

The they have been working on aid for years and it could

:00:19.:00:24.

revolutionise the way cancer is detected and treated.

:00:24.:00:28.

Also tonight, back in court, the burglar freed from quarter only

:00:28.:00:30.

because it breached his human rights.

:00:30.:00:35.

Plus, the hunt is on for thieves who have stolen the Ashbourne's

:00:35.:00:39.

market. And when is a Stilton not a

:00:39.:00:49.
:00:49.:00:58.

Stilton? Good evening. First tonight, news

:00:58.:01:02.

of a simple blood test that can detect cancer years before the

:01:02.:01:06.

tumour grows. It is a test that could revolutionise the way cancer

:01:06.:01:10.

is diagnosed and treated. Experts at the University of

:01:10.:01:15.

Nottingham have been working on it for 15 years. Now after being

:01:15.:01:18.

tested in America it will launch commercially here in the UK later

:01:18.:01:22.

this year. Our health correspondent is at the

:01:22.:01:27.

opening of a new research centre in the East Midlands where the work is

:01:27.:01:33.

being co-ordinated. Good evening. Good evening. Experts from home and

:01:33.:01:37.

abroad are listening to a lecture at the moment hearing just how far

:01:37.:01:42.

all of this research has come. And how much promise it holds. At the

:01:42.:01:47.

moment, here are some facts. One in three of us according to the NHS

:01:47.:01:51.

will develop cancer at some stage in our lives. One in four people

:01:51.:01:57.

died from it. The hope is to detect all forms of cancer much quicker,

:01:57.:02:01.

treat them more effectively, saving lives and helping more of us live

:02:01.:02:07.

longer. This lady has lung cancer. There is no cure. She has been

:02:07.:02:12.

supported by the Derbyshire hospice. Like most patients she wishes it

:02:12.:02:16.

had been picked up sooner. It was a complete shock, you have no idea

:02:16.:02:23.

before the scan? I have no idea. I had no breathlessness, nothing. I

:02:23.:02:28.

found it frightening. Me and my husband both did when I couldn't

:02:28.:02:33.

breathe properly, we were both thinking it was serious. Do think

:02:33.:02:39.

that there are things inside me and I didn't know about them...

:02:39.:02:44.

Diagnosing cancer earlier is what this research is about. They have

:02:44.:02:47.

detected a -- created a blood test that can pick up the disease in the

:02:47.:02:52.

early stages. This evening, a new centre opened in Derby to promote

:02:52.:02:56.

the work and raise millions. The blood test is already on sale in

:02:56.:03:00.

America where it has been shown to detect lung cancer early. Now more

:03:00.:03:08.

studies are planned. This blood test is I think the most promising

:03:08.:03:11.

and the best test available. It is maybe the only one commercially

:03:11.:03:14.

available but I know of in the United States. There are others

:03:14.:03:18.

that are being tested and researched but nothing is as far a

:03:18.:03:22.

long as this. The University of Nottingham plans to launch the

:03:22.:03:25.

blood test in the UK later this year and develop it for other

:03:25.:03:31.

cancers. Professor Robert CERN knows all

:03:31.:03:35.

about this. You have been working on this fog 15 years. Some people

:03:35.:03:39.

will think it sounds too good to be true, the ability to pick up cancer

:03:40.:03:44.

years before people have symptoms? It has the potential to change the

:03:44.:03:50.

way in which we diagnose and treat cancer. It has taken 15 years to do

:03:50.:03:54.

the research. His is only for lung cancer at the moment? That is the

:03:54.:04:00.

first Test we will develop. It's it is no secret that you have tried it

:04:00.:04:03.

in America and it only picks up lung cancer about 40% of the time?

:04:03.:04:09.

It does at the moment. Since that is the most common form of cancer

:04:09.:04:13.

in absolute numbers it is a huge number of people. Depicted a burly

:04:13.:04:20.

is the most important thing. There it is a very poor outlook for lung

:04:20.:04:23.

cancer patients because it is detected too late. For the majority

:04:23.:04:29.

come late, yes. You are a breast cancer surgeon at Nottingham City

:04:29.:04:31.

Hospital. Is there any chance for this being developed for breast

:04:31.:04:36.

cancer patients as well? I am at the Royal Derby Hospital now. We

:04:36.:04:41.

are about to develop it for breast cancer and then: cancer and liver

:04:41.:04:44.

cancer. That is the reason for having the centre of excellence

:04:44.:04:48.

because we want to give it a focus and develop the funding for that

:04:48.:04:53.

which we do not have. We are forming the centre to get as to put

:04:53.:04:58.

that forward. The test that you are trialling in America cost �100 up

:04:58.:05:03.

to �200 in our money. Will it ever be used for screening at that cost?

:05:03.:05:08.

I often say it is a bit like something starting out more

:05:08.:05:12.

expensive but as more and people use it, the cost drops. To start

:05:12.:05:17.

with, it is more expensive. As it becomes used for screening, the

:05:17.:05:23.

cost will drop. Fan due very much. I am sure you will agree that it is

:05:24.:05:29.

very exciting research -- thank you very much.

:05:29.:05:34.

Next, he was released early from prison so he could care for his

:05:34.:05:38.

five children. Today Wayne Bishop from Nottingham was back in court.

:05:38.:05:43.

Last year, he won an appeal against his sentence for burglary and

:05:43.:05:47.

dangerous driving arguing that it breached his human rights. Now

:05:47.:05:50.

after being convicted for assault, he could face being sent back to

:05:50.:05:55.

jail. This was the moment when Wayne

:05:55.:06:00.

Bishop from Clifton was reunited with his family of but the father

:06:00.:06:03.

of five was released from jail last May after the Court of Appeal ruled

:06:03.:06:07.

that not enough attention had been paid to the effect of a prison term

:06:07.:06:11.

would have on his children. Today he returned to court to face a

:06:11.:06:15.

charge of assault. The judge was shown CCTV footage of the incident

:06:15.:06:20.

which took place at the shop in Broxtowe just a month after Wayne

:06:20.:06:26.

Bishop was released from prison. His brother grabbed a man in a

:06:26.:06:30.

headlock before Wayne Bishop punched them. Both denied the

:06:30.:06:36.

assault. The judge said that he found their story implausible and

:06:36.:06:39.

as Wayne Bishop had refused to give his account of what happened he

:06:39.:06:45.

took that to mean he had no proper defence. The case against his

:06:45.:06:52.

brother has been referred to the Crown Court for a date to be set.

:06:52.:06:58.

Still to come, two people who make a living from looking towards

:06:58.:07:01.

heaven. I will be looking to the sky at

:07:01.:07:07.

night as we forecast further wintery showers.

:07:07.:07:16.

And do join me later on East Midlands Today.

:07:16.:07:19.

Before those heavenly bodies, the Cambridgeshire village fighting for

:07:19.:07:24.

a slice of the Stilton market. Pub landlords in the village of Stilton

:07:24.:07:28.

have produced a cheese which they say should go by the same name.

:07:28.:07:32.

As we all know, by law, no cheese is allowed to be called Stilton

:07:32.:07:37.

unless it is made right here in the East Midlands. But the makers of

:07:37.:07:40.

Bell White say they are prepared to go all the way to Europe to win the

:07:41.:07:46.

right to take the name. This is the cheese which is

:07:46.:07:49.

fighting for the right to be called Stilton. Although it has been

:07:49.:07:52.

produced by a pub in the Cambridgeshire village of Stilton,

:07:52.:07:57.

by law, it is not allowed to take the Stilton name. The blue veined

:07:57.:08:02.

cheese has been made in just six Dairies in East Midlands since

:08:02.:08:07.

being given protected designation of origin status in 1996. Locals

:08:07.:08:11.

believe archive evidence of a long history of cheese production

:08:11.:08:16.

including an original recipe proves that Stilton originally came from

:08:16.:08:21.

the village of Stilton. We have been wanting to make cheese in

:08:21.:08:25.

Stilton for a number of years. Unfortunately, we cannot call it

:08:25.:08:28.

the Stilton and it seems ridiculous that we can make a cheese in

:08:28.:08:32.

Stilton and we cannot call it by the name of the village. Although

:08:32.:08:35.

this may seem like a quaint challenge from a village pub, in

:08:35.:08:41.

reality, it means fighting for a slice of big profits. The Stilton

:08:41.:08:46.

industry estimated to be worth millions of pounds. A million of

:08:46.:08:50.

them a made in the East Midlands every year and 10% are exported

:08:50.:08:55.

abroad. His is a very valuable property, the Stilton cheese. You

:08:55.:08:58.

cannot have people coming along anywhere in the world and starting

:08:58.:09:03.

to use that name. It is projected to protect the local economy and

:09:03.:09:07.

ensure consumers know exactly what they are getting one lay-by Stilton.

:09:07.:09:12.

They know it is made to an approved recipe and only in Derbyshire.

:09:12.:09:18.

Today, customers at this pub gave their vote of approval for the new

:09:18.:09:22.

cheese which is currently called Bell White. It is really lovely.

:09:22.:09:27.

goes on sale in March. Whether it ever will -- whether it will ever

:09:27.:09:30.

win at the right to be called Stilton is something that can only

:09:30.:09:36.

be decided by the European Union. In other news, a council leader has

:09:36.:09:41.

been charged with benefit fraud. Milan Radulovic runs Broxtowe

:09:41.:09:45.

Borough Council in Nottinghamshire. He is alleged to have made a false

:09:45.:09:50.

statement about his income on an incapacity benefit claim form 15

:09:50.:09:55.

years ago. The 56-year-old from Eastwood is reported to have denied

:09:55.:10:00.

the accusations strenuously. He is due before the courts in March.

:10:00.:10:03.

A police force is disputing government figures which they ate

:10:03.:10:06.

they have seen the biggest cut in officer numbers in the country. The

:10:06.:10:10.

Home Office say that Derbyshire Police lost 156 officers last year,

:10:10.:10:15.

that is a 7.5% vol. Before says the figures are misleading because they

:10:15.:10:19.

include officers who moved to new regional units.

:10:19.:10:23.

Police are hoping that a reconstruction of a violent armed

:10:23.:10:26.

robbery at a Nottinghamshire Post Office will lead to vital

:10:26.:10:30.

information. The TV reconstruction to be shown on tonight's Crimewatch

:10:30.:10:35.

programme shows the moment two masked men broke into the Shireoaks

:10:35.:10:39.

Post Office last November. The couple who owned the village

:10:39.:10:46.

business were held at gunpoint. Crimewatch is on at 9pm.

:10:46.:10:50.

Stallholders in Ashbourne had a bit of a surprise this morning when

:10:50.:10:53.

they turned up and found that a vital part of the street market was

:10:53.:10:58.

missing. A bit of make-do and mend it meant

:10:58.:11:01.

that trading could go ahead as normal.

:11:01.:11:05.

There may have looked like a normal day at the market but something

:11:05.:11:10.

very important was missing. Last night, all of the market

:11:10.:11:15.

stalls were stolen. We arrived this morning at 7am to find that there

:11:15.:11:21.

were no stalls. There was someone from the council who came down and

:11:21.:11:24.

said that the stalls had been stolen but we did not know if we

:11:24.:11:28.

would still be able to go ahead with the market. The traders did

:11:28.:11:32.

not let the theft affect them. Instead, they use their

:11:32.:11:35.

imaginations, building stalls out of cardboard and crates.

:11:36.:11:40.

problem is that when it rains, we have got no cover. The stalls

:11:40.:11:45.

normally have sheets on them. We are having to put all of our goods

:11:45.:11:49.

a way or cover them up. A it has definitely made it awkward for the

:11:49.:11:55.

people who use the market. I do not use a stalk so I was lucky.

:11:55.:11:59.

Considering they did not know this was -- this has happened, they did

:11:59.:12:04.

really well. I thought it was the weather that had done it but

:12:04.:12:09.

obviously not. In it is obvious what they have done. At first, I

:12:09.:12:14.

thought it was a new idea. Around 60 of the stalls were stolen from

:12:15.:12:18.

one of the council's warehouses. The dates and rocks had been

:12:18.:12:23.

smashed. The council says it will have to borrow a stalls and do what

:12:23.:12:26.

every can to make sure that Saturday's busiest market goes

:12:26.:12:33.

ahead. In other news, of alcohol-related

:12:33.:12:37.

deaths in the East Midlands increased between 2009 and 2010.

:12:37.:12:42.

That is according to official statistics released today. 579

:12:42.:12:48.

people died as a result of alcohol issues in 2010. That is an increase

:12:48.:12:53.

of 16. The figures also show that more than two-thirds of those who

:12:53.:12:59.

A man's been charged after a woman was assaulted on Bishop Street in

:12:59.:13:02.

Leicester earlier this month. Kristina Leatherland, who's 18, was

:13:02.:13:06.

assaulted on Sunday 15th January. Police have arrested a 39-year-old

:13:06.:13:08.

man in connection with the incident. He'll appear at Leicester

:13:08.:13:12.

Magistrates Court next month. A Leicester MP has spoken out in

:13:12.:13:14.

Parliament today over why businesses in the city cannot claim

:13:14.:13:17.

compensation if they were damaged in last summer's disturbances.

:13:17.:13:20.

Firms can't get any money from the Government as the trouble in the

:13:21.:13:24.

city wasn't deemed serious enough to be classed as a riot. Now

:13:24.:13:27.

Leicester South MP Jon Ashworth has demanded businesses in the city are

:13:27.:13:35.

given more support. Leicester businesses have learned they are

:13:35.:13:38.

not eligible for any money from the police are authority and we have

:13:38.:13:41.

now learned from the Minister for police they are not eligible for

:13:41.:13:46.

any of the Adair compensation schemes. People in Leicester are

:13:46.:13:50.

hugely disappointed and furious about this. Compensation is

:13:50.:13:54.

available for those who suffered loss in the riots. I will chase the

:13:54.:13:59.

issues he has referred to do see if we can make progress to help his

:13:59.:14:01.

retailers. The UK's largest planetarium has

:14:01.:14:04.

been renamed in honour of a famous astronomer. Sir Patrick Moore

:14:05.:14:07.

visited the National Space Centre in Leicester today for the official

:14:07.:14:17.
:14:17.:14:18.

ceremony. Simon Ward got the chance to meet the veteran broadcaster.

:14:18.:14:22.

He has been presenting the BBC television programme the sky at

:14:22.:14:26.

night for more than 55 years and has encouraged it generations to

:14:26.:14:30.

become interested in astronomy. Now what was simply known as the Space

:14:30.:14:40.

Theatre has become the Sir Patrick Moore planetarium. Today he gave

:14:40.:14:44.

his you on separate set -- says Professor Brian Cox. We complement

:14:44.:14:48.

each other. And you have excited people over the generations to

:14:48.:14:52.

become interested in space. Is that your greatest achievement? What I

:14:52.:14:56.

have tried to do is introduce astronomy and bring people into it,

:14:56.:15:01.

which I hope I have done. presence may be visiting the space

:15:01.:15:04.

centre even more special by those - - for those fascinated by the

:15:04.:15:09.

subject or stop I feel as though it is so much more amazing and people

:15:09.:15:14.

need to find out more about it. have always had an interest in

:15:14.:15:20.

science fiction. Obviously, you know, it is life beyond Earth, I

:15:20.:15:26.

guess. Just the discovery of new things. He is an inspirational

:15:26.:15:34.

characters. The first book I read on astronomy was by Sir Patrick.

:15:34.:15:37.

With people like him and other astronauts coming along, it just

:15:37.:15:42.

helps people get interested in astronomy. There is no doubt that

:15:42.:15:48.

this planetarium will inspire people for years to come to look up

:15:48.:15:52.

and find out what is out there. What a lovely man.

:15:52.:15:55.

Still to come, Sally goes wild, in search of a silent killer of the

:15:55.:16:03.

countryside. For our first outing of 2012, I am on the lookout for a

:16:03.:16:08.

bird of prey from Leicestershire. But will I get to see his clearing

:16:08.:16:14.

up yellow eyes? Find out later. And I will be finding out how the

:16:14.:16:22.

boxing binman is doing now he is no longer on the bins.

:16:22.:16:26.

And you saw him just then and you can see him now. Not wearing a pink

:16:26.:16:32.

jumper... But wearing a pink tie. borrowed this!

:16:32.:16:35.

Three East Midlands footballers are in with a chance of competing for

:16:35.:16:39.

Team GB at the Olympics. Derby keeper Frank Fielding is the latest

:16:39.:16:42.

to receive a letter asking if he wants to be considered for

:16:42.:16:44.

selection, along with Nottingham Forest's Chris Gunter and Jamal

:16:44.:16:46.

Lacelles. They'll face tough competition, though, with nearly

:16:47.:16:50.

200 players being considered. Another quick bit of news from the

:16:50.:16:53.

Rams and striker Tomas Sifka has signed for Reading in an

:16:53.:16:56.

undisclosed deal. He was out of contract in the summer and didn't

:16:56.:17:00.

feature in Nigel Clough's plans. In cricket there was a fourth

:17:00.:17:03.

wicket for Nottinghamshire's Stuart Broad and a catch for team-mate

:17:03.:17:07.

Graeme Swann, as England bowled out Pakistan for 257 in Abu Dhabi.

:17:07.:17:14.

England will resume tomorrow on 207 for five, 50 runs behind.

:17:14.:17:17.

Last year, we were with Leicester's boxing binman Rendall Munroe in

:17:17.:17:21.

Japan, as he fought hard but lost in his bid to be world super

:17:21.:17:25.

bantamweight champion. Well, the boxing binman is no longer a binman,

:17:25.:17:29.

so I've been to see how he's doing now he's packed in the job, and

:17:29.:17:36.

find out what we should call him now.

:17:36.:17:41.

Now he has given up the been round, he can bet -- get more rounds in

:17:41.:17:50.

the ring. But since his defeat in Japan, nobody wants to fight terror.

:17:50.:17:59.

He did well because his opponent was one of the best. Rendall

:17:59.:18:08.

schedule off. He is now nine-stone four and when he was on the bins,

:18:08.:18:15.

he was 10. It is a lot of weight to get off. People came out and

:18:15.:18:24.

brought him cups of tea. Good for a big man but no good for a boxer!

:18:24.:18:30.

like my chocolate, my doughnuts! But I miss the lads. We used to

:18:30.:18:34.

have a good bit of banter and I miss the people who used to look

:18:34.:18:38.

after me. Sometimes you have to give away things to achieve things.

:18:38.:18:43.

That is the way it goes. Now key is no longer a binman, he needs a new

:18:43.:18:51.

name. Now people are calling me a machine and bacon call me at the

:18:51.:19:00.

elite fighting machine. -- they can call me. A fight with a fellow Brit

:19:00.:19:03.

is on the cards and then another title shot, but will we ever see

:19:03.:19:12.

him back on the bins? I am a workaholic. If they take me back,

:19:12.:19:16.

why not?! He's a lovely chap. Let's hope he

:19:16.:19:20.

cleans up! Now, there's not long till the Olympic Games, and while

:19:20.:19:24.

we'll all be rooting for Team GB, there'll be a little bit of

:19:24.:19:28.

Derbyshire that's also keeping an eye out for the Aussies. As part of

:19:28.:19:30.

the Olympic legacy programme, Highfields School, in Matlock, has

:19:30.:19:39.

twinned with a school down-under, as Helen Barnes reports.

:19:39.:19:43.

These pupils from Highfields School in that login Derbyshire are seeing

:19:43.:19:47.

how close they can get to the training at times of an Olympics

:19:47.:19:56.

won. -- in Matlock. The challenge has been set by a Australian Emily

:19:56.:20:00.

Seebohm, a swimming medallist in Beijing. Her former school has been

:20:00.:20:04.

twinned with Highfields School. It is one of the first to be twinned

:20:05.:20:09.

with another school from around the globe. It is part of the Education

:20:09.:20:13.

legacy for the 2012 Olympics. project have started, we have done

:20:14.:20:17.

it sub-assemblies and joint project in history, technology, maths,

:20:17.:20:24.

English. Emily is keeping in touch with the pupils from Matlock,

:20:24.:20:32.

answering the questions they send her. I got into swimming with my

:20:32.:20:37.

mum and she taught me how to swim from a baby. Lessons have taken on

excitement among visitors to a nature reserve run by the

Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust. So we asked Sally Pepper and

:22:20.:22:23.

the Goes Wild team to go to Cossington Meadows to see just what

:22:23.:22:33.
:22:33.:22:41.

Although it is more commonly thought of as a nocturnal hunter,

:22:41.:22:47.

this particular bird of prey can also be seen by day. And with daily

:22:47.:22:50.

sightings of them here at Cossington Meadows, we are hoping

:22:50.:22:59.

we might get a glimpse. And to help us catch that glints, we have

enlisted the expert advice of John, from the Leicestershire and Rutland

ornithological Society. What will we see? We have got up to four

:23:13.:23:18.

birds around the reserve at the moment. You can see the trees and

the hedge there, the spindly tree? We have one sat out there are now.

It has got it back to us. Brilliant, aren't they? It is sitting on

The Orkney people call than the catty-faced owl. Because of the

eyes? Yes. Where the you think the roost is? Somewhere in this

triangular field there. Occasionally in low bushes. They

ears are placed slightly higher. One is slightly higher than the

have been a damp day but we got what we came for. The majestic

shorted owl soaring across the nature reserve and then perching.

:24:55.:24:59.

Why don't you come along because into meadows and you could see one

for yourself. -- along to Cossington Meadows.

:25:08.:25:18.
:25:18.:25:20.

I thought it was the long-it owl. One bonus of the early shift is

:25:20.:25:25.

that you get to see those animals on your way in. We also have some

:25:25.:25:31.

amazing photographs sent in, one of which was sent in by Lisa. This

:25:31.:25:34.

captures the skies over the East Midlands today, where we have had

:25:34.:25:40.

some very heavy showers around and hail as well. A further showers

:25:40.:25:44.

tonight and a few affecting the Peak District. Those are falling as

:25:44.:25:48.

snow at the moment and they are pushing across Bristol and Wales,

:25:48.:25:53.

and they have been falling as snow as well. Every chance over higher

:25:53.:25:57.

ground of seeing those showers falling as snow, and at lower

levels, a mixture of sleet and rain. We have got clearer skies the

:26:05.:26:11.

further south you are, so a frost developing. A breezy night, as soap

sheltered in some parts. Cloudy skies with showers on and off

:26:16.:26:20.

through the morning, and a minimum temperature of two degrees.

:26:21.:26:25.

Tomorrow, we have the sunshine and a frosty stuck across the South,

and Ben showers forming across the West, and they will work their way

down. -- and then at showers. We could have hail mixed in, too, over

:26:40.:26:44.

lower ground. A damp afternoon and a bit treacherous on the roads as

:26:44.:26:50.

well if you are travelling anywhere. A maximum similar to today, of six

:26:50.:26:54.

degrees. All changed over the weekend. Well, we think it is

:26:54.:26:59.

changing. Still a question mark over that. But they will gradually

:26:59.:27:04.

brighten up on Saturday and we have this band coming in over Ireland.

:27:04.:27:11.

It will work its way towards us over Sunday. If its stars to come

:27:11.:27:16.

in towards the East Midlands, it will need the cold care. On Monday,

:27:16.:27:21.

we could see some snow. Thank you. If you are into tweeting,
