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

:00:05.:00:08.

Our top story tonight - the death of a Royal Marine, described as a

:00:08.:00:14.

true hero. His family here of the desperate

:00:14.:00:20.

attempts to save him after he was shot on patrol in Afghanistan.

:00:20.:00:26.

Also, as the temperatures plummet, we get ready to start spreading

:00:26.:00:31.

this little lot. Why are so many children developing

type 1 diabetes? I am staying very still, holding

this beautiful are off. Find out more about him later in the

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:00:57.

Good evening and welcome to the programme. First tonight, an

:00:57.:01:00.

inquest has been hearing how a young Royal Marine, described as a

:01:00.:01:05.

true hero, was shot dead in Afghanistan.

:01:05.:01:08.

Lance Corporal Martin Gill was killed while on a routine patrol in

:01:08.:01:13.

Helmand Province. His colleagues described how they tried to save

:01:13.:01:22.

him but couldn't because his injuries were so devastating.

:01:22.:01:26.

Lance corporal Martin Gill returned home to be buried, just two months

:01:26.:01:30.

after being deployed to Afghanistan. The 22 year-old from Nottingham had

:01:30.:01:35.

been on a routine patrol in the village -- a village in Helmand

:01:35.:01:41.

province last June. The mission was to destroy insurgent activity in

:01:41.:01:45.

the area. A corporal told the inquest that when they arrived,

:01:45.:01:49.

they were greeted with friendly faces. He said they were happy with

:01:49.:01:53.

the atmospherics, describing how he and Martin had even been engaging

:01:53.:01:58.

with the local children. But it was towards the end of their short

:01:58.:02:02.

exercise when a sudden burst of gunfire was heard. The corporal

:02:02.:02:08.

described how he saw Martin being hit by the first round of shots.

:02:08.:02:12.

The inquest was told that he had been wearing full body armour and a

:02:12.:02:15.

helmet, but they couldn't have protected him from the bullet which

:02:15.:02:20.

went into his neck and head. His colleagues described pulling their

:02:20.:02:25.

friend to safety and trying in vain to resuscitate him. Afterwards,

:02:25.:02:30.

Martin's family thanked them for trying. For men that were with

:02:30.:02:34.

Martin when he felt could not have been more dedicated in getting him

:02:34.:02:41.

to safety. -- the men. We come to realise in at the past months how

:02:41.:02:45.

strong the bond is with him Bacall and the loss of -- for loss of

:02:45.:02:49.

Martin has hit them as much as it has hit us. Martin's brother,

:02:49.:02:53.

sister and girlfriend sat in the front row of the court has the

:02:53.:02:56.

coroner explained how keen he had been to deployed to Afghanistan,

:02:56.:03:00.

despite the death of his mother just weeks earlier. This was the

:03:00.:03:05.

mark of the man, the inquest heard, passionate and dedicated, and

:03:05.:03:09.

utterly loyal. After listening to all the evidence, the coroner

:03:09.:03:12.

recorded a verdict of unlawful killing. She then read out a

:03:12.:03:18.

tribute which had been paid by Martin's commanding officer. He

:03:18.:03:26.

said, Martin was a marine of rare quality, a true hero, selfless,

:03:26.:03:36.

resolute and courageous to the end. Now temperatures are set to plummet

:03:36.:03:38.

tonight and there are warnings of potentially dangerous driving

:03:38.:03:43.

conditions on the region's roads. Last year of course, some major

:03:43.:03:48.

highways went ungritted as councils began to run out of salt.

:03:48.:03:54.

This year, local authorities are taking no chances. Our reporter is

:03:54.:03:59.

at a highways depot now. Simon, this is the start of a busy night

:03:59.:04:06.

for the gritting lorries. Yes, indeed. We are at a new work,

:04:06.:04:10.

at one of the Nottinghamshire county council depots. There are

:04:11.:04:13.

3000 tonnes of salt in this one should alone. There are others

:04:13.:04:19.

around the county. Tonight, around 24 critters like this one will be

:04:19.:04:23.

out and about on of the roads of a Nottinghamshire, because

:04:23.:04:29.

temperatures could go as low as- nine tonight. Lots more salt will

:04:29.:04:33.

be put on the roads. Let's have a word with Richard Jackson who is in

:04:33.:04:38.

charge. After the problems last year, are you prepared? Have you

:04:38.:04:46.

got enough? We have 18,000 tonnes of salt across the county to make

:04:46.:04:49.

sure we keep our roads moving, whatever the weather throws at us.

:04:49.:04:52.

You've been looking at the latest information from the met Office.

:04:52.:04:56.

How is it looking tonight? Tonight could be a trying night for us. It

:04:57.:05:04.

will be freezing for the next few hours. We will be out... We might

:05:04.:05:09.

even see a spot of rain which UN dues by some of the good work we do.

:05:09.:05:15.

It will freeze again. -- and does some of the good work. The message

:05:15.:05:19.

to drivers as well in the morning is just because it has been treated,

:05:19.:05:23.

don't alter your driving. absolutely, take care. We will have

:05:23.:05:28.

been out and gritted the roots as much as possible. Richard, my

:05:28.:05:31.

thanks. I'm going to go out with one of those crews. You can see

:05:31.:05:38.

more on the matter tomorrow -- more on that tomorrow and on our late

:05:38.:05:44.

bulletin is severe. But to the warm studio.

:05:44.:05:47.

So, they're all prepared for icy roads and a snowy weekend. But how

:05:47.:05:53.

likely is snow? You're not going to believe it but

:05:53.:05:57.

in the last few minutes, it has started to snow! All right, it's

:05:57.:06:02.

not real. But the real deal is likely to come on Saturday. More

:06:02.:06:07.

later. And lifting the lid on the Austrian

:06:07.:06:17.
:06:17.:06:18.

A major report on undercover policing is recommending much

:06:18.:06:21.

tighter controls, following the collapse of a trial of climate

:06:21.:06:25.

activists in Nottingham. Mark Kennedy was one of more than 100

:06:25.:06:26.

activists arrested by Nottinghamshire Police for plotting

:06:26.:06:33.

to shut down Ratcliffe power station. But police didn't know

:06:33.:06:38.

Kennedy was really an undercover detective. Today's report by her

:06:38.:06:40.

Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary says he broke the

:06:40.:06:42.

rules by having intimate relationships and getting too

:06:42.:06:46.

involved in the plot. Mark Kennedy says everything he did had been

:06:46.:06:53.

approved. The sale of the Castle Donington

:06:53.:06:56.

based airline BMI Baby could be completed within a few weeks but

:06:56.:06:59.

that won't affect anyone who's booked flights for this summer. A

:06:59.:07:03.

deal has been agreed in principle to sell the airline to a mystery UK

:07:03.:07:06.

company. But its current owners say the 2012 summer schedule will go

:07:06.:07:10.

ahead as planned. The company's head office will remain in the East

:07:10.:07:15.

Midlands after the sale. An East Midlands energy company

:07:15.:07:18.

wants to build the UK's biggest solar farm on a site in

:07:18.:07:22.

Leicestershire. Photovoltaic panels, like these near Newark, convert

:07:22.:07:28.

sunlight directly into electricity. Lark Energy wants to put 120,000

:07:28.:07:33.

panels on an old airfield near Wymeswold. If it gets the go ahead,

:07:33.:07:36.

the site will take six months to build, cost �40 million and cover a

:07:37.:07:46.
:07:47.:07:47.

hundred acres. Doctors say cases of childhood

:07:47.:07:49.

diabetes have doubled over the past ten years with Nottingham

:07:49.:07:52.

Children's Hospital, seeing more and more youngsters with type 1.

:07:52.:07:57.

These children rely on daily doses of insulin. Our health

:07:57.:07:59.

correspondent has met one youngster from Derbyshire who's been

:07:59.:08:09.
:08:09.:08:10.

diagnosed with the condition. Dominic has to measure his blood

:08:10.:08:14.

sugars every day. The seven-year- old is one of more and more

:08:14.:08:19.

children with type 1 diabetes. the countdown. Without being given

:08:19.:08:25.

insulin, his body cannot break down the sugar. A 13.9. White blood

:08:25.:08:30.

sugar is quite high now. readings are sent to the pump which

:08:30.:08:34.

controls the insulin given to his body. Dominic is not alone. They

:08:34.:08:38.

are seeing more and more children at the Queen's Medical Centre with

:08:38.:08:44.

type 1 diabetes. 10 years ago, it was about 25 new children with

:08:44.:08:48.

diabetes every year. Now it is about 50 children every year. They

:08:48.:08:54.

don't quite know why. One theory is we are all too clean and our new

:08:54.:08:59.

systems don't know what to do it ourselves. If your child starts

:08:59.:09:03.

drinking or reading a lot, for example start sweating the bed

:09:03.:09:07.

again, having been tried previously, a simple blood test or urine test

:09:07.:09:12.

can see what you've got high sugar levels. Which is better? Pump or

:09:12.:09:17.

injections? Pump, because it did half to have needles in my arms or

:09:17.:09:21.

legs. It is a way of life but for mothers and fathers, the diagnosis

:09:21.:09:26.

is hard. Heart-wrenching. It felt like having a baby all over again

:09:26.:09:31.

and having to learn all over again new things. He is a brave little

:09:31.:09:35.

boy. Mummy and daddy are so proud of him as well. Dominic was

:09:35.:09:38.

diagnosed quickly which is good. What his family and many others are

:09:38.:09:44.

now hoping for is that in future, a cure might be found for conditions

:09:44.:09:50.

which are affecting more and more lives.

:09:50.:09:53.

The Church of England's brought in tougher checks, after a string of

:09:53.:09:57.

sham weddings in Nottingham. Nine fake grooms and brides have been

:09:57.:10:01.

jailed after local vicars were duped into marrying them. A tenth

:10:01.:10:04.

man, Phillips Onikoyi, admitted organising the weddings for an

:10:04.:10:12.

immigration scam. The marriage register at one church in Basford

:10:12.:10:15.

showed there were 38 weddings in a year, many involving Nigerians who

:10:15.:10:20.

wanted to stay here illegally. Well, earlier I was joined by

:10:20.:10:22.

Reverend Jonathan MacGillivray, who's the Church of England's dean

:10:22.:10:25.

for Nottingham. He told me the number of marriages involving

:10:25.:10:32.

different nationalities didn't appear out of the ordinary. On one

:10:32.:10:38.

level, it seems extraordinary except if you live in one town

:10:38.:10:44.

where there is a huge Nigerian committee. All marrying Dutch

:10:44.:10:49.

people? Well... Except there are a lot of that from the West Indies

:10:49.:10:52.

who might have reasonable links. Hindsight is a great thing. I

:10:52.:10:55.

believe you have personal experience because you were taking

:10:55.:10:59.

him on one occasion. I had one chap who came with his proofs of

:10:59.:11:03.

identity such as his passport and bank statements, his council tax

:11:03.:11:07.

bill, and his bank statement had something about transactions at

:11:07.:11:11.

Harrods. I asked him what he bought in Harrods and he couldn't explain

:11:11.:11:15.

it. And then I explained to him that I didn't think it was an

:11:15.:11:21.

authentic bank statement. I wouldn't take it any further.

:11:21.:11:25.

seems these gangs are out to defraud. Is it going to bring about

:11:25.:11:29.

any change to how you approach these things? It has already

:11:29.:11:33.

brought huge changes. No longer will I normally be seeing double

:11:33.:11:38.

from non-EU countries, to swear an affidavit, they all go to the

:11:38.:11:44.

bishop's main officer. He is a solicitor. Rather than to a

:11:44.:11:48.

clergyman like me. When you look back on this and the number of sham

:11:48.:11:54.

marriages, do you regret that they went ahead? Are you glad these

:11:54.:11:58.

changes have been made? Of course, yes. The Church wants to be open

:11:58.:12:06.

and welcoming to those who want to commit to another person. But we

:12:06.:12:16.
:12:16.:12:16.

don't want the system to be abused any more than anyone else does.

:12:16.:12:19.

One of the region's most influential politicians is at the

:12:19.:12:21.

centre of an investigation into his travel expenses.

:12:21.:12:23.

David Parsons, the leader of Leicestershire County Council, has

:12:23.:12:25.

been accused of not repaying money that he owed.

:12:25.:12:28.

He denies any allegations of wrong- doing and says all the debts have

:12:28.:12:38.

now been paid. It was political business as usual

:12:38.:12:41.

for David Parsons today, at a conference on reviving the region's

:12:41.:12:47.

economy. He was chairing a session of East Midlands councils, the new

:12:47.:12:51.

body that speaks up for local government. It is in his role that

:12:51.:12:56.

has led to an investigation into his travel expenses. Specifically,

:12:56.:13:00.

it should support and to lobby on his behalf of local councils.

:13:00.:13:06.

auditor's report highlights �5,400 but at one stage was owed by a

:13:07.:13:10.

counsellor Parsons to East Midlands councils. It advanced his travel

:13:10.:13:16.

expenses to Brussels and he was reimbursed by the European Union.

:13:16.:13:19.

The investigation centred on delays in councillor Parsons refunding the

:13:19.:13:25.

cash back to the opposition. I have written cheques and the problem is

:13:25.:13:28.

the Czechs have been lost by East Midlands councils or Leicestershire

:13:28.:13:34.

County Council, which has not helped the situation. David Parsons

:13:34.:13:36.

once close scrutiny of regional funding to make sure the East

:13:36.:13:40.

Midlands gets its fair share but this investigation into his

:13:40.:13:44.

expenses for travelling to Brussels, to lobby EU officials, now puts him

:13:44.:13:53.

under close scrutiny. I think that an apology is needed. We need to

:13:53.:13:58.

change the process so this cannot happen in the future. He must learn

:13:58.:14:02.

his lesson and move on. Councillor Parsons has now repaid all the

:14:02.:14:06.

money owed to East Midlands councils. What we are trying to do

:14:06.:14:10.

is put things on a more transparent footing. I am behind that. Next

:14:10.:14:14.

Monday, a powerful county hall committee will decide whether to

:14:14.:14:20.

take any further action against Still to come on the programme. The

:14:20.:14:23.

fun of falconry. Kylie tempts the birds from the trees in

:14:23.:14:26.

Leicestershire. And the perils of the piece to camera as our Colin

:14:26.:14:36.
:14:36.:15:03.

They're made by the world's oldest and most prestigious manufacturer

:15:03.:15:06.

and today half a dozen of them arrived in the East Midlands. The

:15:06.:15:09.

Bursendorfer pianos have been brought all the way from Austria to

:15:09.:15:12.

Nottingham to be used for a series of concerts in the city. Angelina

:15:12.:15:19.

Socci's been to take a look. Delivering a piano is not an easy

:15:19.:15:24.

task, especially when there is six of them and their total value is

:15:24.:15:29.

nearly half a million pounds. Starting at �57,000, these

:15:29.:15:33.

Bursendorfer grand pianos have been transported from Vienna. They are

:15:33.:15:36.

made out of the best materials available, and they have been made

:15:36.:15:43.

for 200 years. From start to finish, it takes about a year to make one

:15:43.:15:48.

of these instruments, so there is a lot involved. They are one of the

:15:48.:15:52.

oldest piano manufacturers in the world, and they have been played in

:15:52.:16:02.
:16:02.:16:06.

concert halls including Leonard Burnside and. -- Leonard Bernstein.

:16:06.:16:10.

The tone and resonance of the bass strings is fantastic. It is quite

:16:10.:16:19.

inspiring. World-renowned pianists will be tinkling these ivories. It

:16:19.:16:23.

has been 20 years since I played the piano, so is there any hope for

:16:23.:16:33.
:16:33.:16:50.

She did pretty good. Not bad. Have you recovered? Just about. A real

:16:50.:17:00.

"ouch" moment - for me - to come in the sport. But I'm still smiling -

:17:00.:17:02.

unlike Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson last night. He really

:17:02.:17:04.

wasn't a happy bunny after the 2-2 wasn't a happy bunny after the 2-2

:17:04.:17:07.

draw with Middlesbrough. It was all over something he claims the

:17:07.:17:10.

referee did at half time. Pearson was so angered by it he says he's

:17:10.:17:20.
:17:20.:17:25.

going to make a complaint. Kirsty who stole the headlines. The

:17:25.:17:29.

referee went into the Leicester changing room for a word at half-

:17:29.:17:36.

time, and Nigel Pearson's reaction saw him sent to the stands. I am

:17:36.:17:42.

talking to my players, giving them instructions in a calm way, and I

:17:42.:17:46.

have someone interrupting meet mid- sentence when I am talking to my

:17:47.:17:54.

players. I told him where he could go. On the pitch, Leicester City

:17:54.:18:00.

took an early lead through David Nugent. By the break, it was all

:18:00.:18:05.

square, as Middlesbrough were able to head in their own close-range

:18:05.:18:09.

effort. Pearce and watch on from the stands in the second half as he

:18:09.:18:14.

saw Jermaine Beckford denied by the woodwork. The foxes may have

:18:14.:18:19.

thought it had not been then night, but then they went behind to a well

:18:20.:18:23.

taken free-kick. The story was not over there as Jermaine Beckford

:18:23.:18:31.

squeezed the ball in from the squeezed the ball in from the

:18:31.:18:33.

narrowest of angles. The Foxes are seven points of the play-offs.

:18:33.:18:38.

is not what we wanted. It is not what we should be achieving. We

:18:38.:18:46.

should be in league play-offs. for the referee, I doubt he will be

:18:46.:18:56.
:18:56.:18:57.

on Nigel Pearson's Christmas card We had a word with our former

:18:57.:19:00.

referee Frazer Stretton earlier today and he told us that in ten

:19:00.:19:03.

years of refereeing he never once went into the changing rooms at

:19:03.:19:06.

half time. Worth pointing out he is a Foxes fan, but nevertheless, he

:19:06.:19:09.

said referee Gavin Ward looked a "little boy lost". More from

:19:09.:19:12.

Leicester tomorrow with new signing Wes Morgan. Plus, of course, all

:19:12.:19:17.

the build up to the Derby versus Forest game. Bit of rugby now, and

:19:17.:19:20.

four Leicester Tigers make the England team for their Six Nations

:19:20.:19:22.

opener against Scotland at the weekend. Ben Youngs, Dan Cole and

:19:22.:19:32.
:19:32.:19:33.

Tom Croft all start. Geoff Parling in on the Bench. And, while we're

:19:33.:19:36.

talking rugby, it's a big weekend for Nottingham. Final home game of

:19:36.:19:39.

the season before the play-offs and they are determined to draw a big

:19:39.:19:42.

crowd. Much lower prices, family events and a big promotion push.

:19:42.:19:44.

Plus taking their opportunity to cause yours truly some pain. Real

:19:44.:19:52.

pain. It's coming up in my day in the life of Nottingham Rugby. They

:19:52.:19:56.

are calling it the push for the Premiership, and they are taking it

:19:56.:20:01.

seriously at Nottingham, but not so soon as the that they would not let

:20:01.:20:06.

an unfit sports presenter take drool with them. It is about so

:20:06.:20:13.

much more than what is happening on the field of play. The city

:20:13.:20:17.

deserves a Premiership rugby club, and we want to get there, and we

:20:17.:20:21.

want to make sure the people of Nottingham are all aware of what we

:20:21.:20:24.

are doing. More importantly, we need to have more people in here to

:20:24.:20:30.

achieve that. Over lunch, it is a time to work out how they achieve

:20:30.:20:35.

that. This man knows a thing or two about the next step. It would be a

:20:35.:20:41.

very big job, and it needs investment in certain areas. It is

:20:41.:20:48.

a very long season with a very attritional game. But we start with

:20:48.:20:52.

this weekend's game. I am confident that this group of lads are a good

:20:52.:20:56.

group. We have at international expertise in key slots, so it is a

:20:56.:21:02.

case of making sure they will take at the same time. Building up the

:21:02.:21:07.

crowd for the long term is one of the key goals, and they are

:21:07.:21:13.

stopping them young. I do not know what to say. They are being trained

:21:13.:21:20.

by players who play week-in, week- out. It is fantastic. It is good

:21:20.:21:25.

taking tactics of them. We want to build a family club and a community

:21:25.:21:29.

club, and we want to get in the Premiership, so to get out and

:21:29.:21:33.
