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

:00:04.:00:08.

Our top story tonight: The mum who died days after a

:00:08.:00:17.

gastric band operation. Out inquest hears Clare White had struggled

:00:17.:00:22.

with her wait for years before opting for surgery.

:00:22.:00:26.

I am tributes act school for a six- year-old boy who drowned with his

:00:26.:00:31.

grandmother in a lake. He simply loved life. He tackled everything

:00:31.:00:37.

with enthusiasm. And boxer Carl Froch backtracks

:00:37.:00:42.

over claims he deliberately prolonged this title fight.

:00:42.:00:46.

comments I made in hindsight, I shouldn't have said. But it was a

:00:46.:00:53.

throwaway comment. And bowing out at 92, but is there

:00:53.:01:03.
:01:03.:01:08.

Good evening. First tonight, she was so desperate to lose weight,

:01:08.:01:11.

but the surgery that she hoped would finally sort out her obesity

:01:11.:01:16.

problems ended up taking her life. Clare White was 37 when she died

:01:16.:01:19.

from a blood clot after undergoing an operation to fit a gastric band

:01:19.:01:25.

at the Royal Derby Hospital. An inquest into her death was held

:01:25.:01:28.

today. Our health correspondent Rob Sissons was at that inquest and

:01:28.:01:38.
:01:38.:01:42.

joins us now. Rob, why did she want this surgery?

:01:42.:01:47.

Good evening. She tried with diets, but always ended up putting the

:01:47.:01:51.

weight back on. She tried medication. So she turned to the

:01:51.:01:57.

Royal Derby Hospital for gastric surgery, to try and finally lose

:01:57.:02:04.

weight. She leaves a widow were and three children. It has left a huge

:02:04.:02:07.

hole in their lives, the fact that there were complications following

:02:07.:02:12.

the operation and that she sadly died. What was the evidence from

:02:12.:02:18.

the Royal Derby Hospital? Here at the Royal Derby Hospital they have

:02:18.:02:22.

developed and regional centre for of the city surgery. They have done

:02:22.:02:26.

hundreds of these operations. Paul leader, the consultant who carried

:02:26.:02:31.

out the operation, said his theory was maybe the gastric band had

:02:31.:02:37.

caused tiny porous, not visible to the naked eye, that would have let

:02:37.:02:41.

bacteria from the gut travel to another part of the body and cause

:02:41.:02:45.

infection. The post-mortem examination that was carried out

:02:45.:02:49.

following her death revealed she died of a blood clot, but she did

:02:49.:02:54.

not feel well in the days after the operation and ended up in intensive

:02:54.:02:58.

care before her condition went downhill. So, a complicated case.

:02:58.:03:07.

And one that is not quite finished? No, her widower, Craig, had lots of

:03:07.:03:11.

questions, he found it very complicated. He said his brain was

:03:11.:03:15.

being fried by the evidence. He was obviously -- was obviously a

:03:15.:03:19.

complex case and the coroner himself as a manager and the case

:03:19.:03:27.

after killing all the evidence. He will deliver his verdict on Friday.

:03:27.:03:30.

Next tonight, a 6-year-old boy who drowned has been described by his

:03:30.:03:35.

head teacher as someone who simply loved life. The bodies of the boy

:03:35.:03:38.

and his grandmother were pulled from a lake in Lincolnshire. Police

:03:38.:03:41.

say inquiries are continuing, but there are no suspicious

:03:41.:03:51.
:03:51.:03:51.

circumstances. Helen Astle reports. After the shock, come the questions.

:03:51.:03:56.

But what happened here, we may never truly know. But we do know at

:03:56.:03:59.

grandmother and her six-year-old grandson lost their lives at this

:03:59.:04:03.

late in Lincolnshire. This afternoon, the police named the

:04:03.:04:08.

pair as Don Molineux and Laurence Marlet me Mills. It is thought they

:04:08.:04:13.

may have got to view the ducks on their way to their home in kept it.

:04:13.:04:17.

This morning, the boy's head teacher pay tribute to him. He was

:04:18.:04:23.

such a special little boy. He simply loved life. He tackled

:04:23.:04:27.

everything with enthusiasm. He relished the challenge, he had a

:04:27.:04:32.

wonderful sense of humour. He was chatty, sociable, and he had

:04:32.:04:37.

impeccable manners. He just loved everything about school and he

:04:37.:04:42.

would run to get here every morning. Meanwhile at the village church,

:04:42.:04:48.

Campbells are being let and prayers being said. I visited the family

:04:48.:04:53.

yesterday and found them in terrible grief. As we would expect.

:04:53.:04:56.

They are an open and from the household, people have been coming

:04:56.:05:02.

and going. I think the family are aware what a friendly and

:05:02.:05:08.

supportive village and a delightful school he attended. We have had a

:05:08.:05:12.

special assembly for the children and they know that they can speak

:05:12.:05:15.

with any one of us at any time if they have any questions. Throughout

:05:15.:05:21.

the day, people have been coming here to pay tribute to Laurie and

:05:21.:05:24.

his grandmother. Many locals have been visibly upset, saying because

:05:25.:05:29.

of with his family, who lived just up the road from here. For Laurie's

:05:29.:05:35.

Mann, she has lost her mother and her six-year-old son. And she may

:05:35.:05:38.

never know why. Nottinghamshire Police have been

:05:38.:05:41.

severely criticised for failing to give proper care to a teenager who

:05:41.:05:45.

died in custody. The family of Reece Staples called it incredible

:05:45.:05:48.

that four different police officers ignored the teenager when he told

:05:48.:05:51.

them he had swallowed packets of cocaine and feared he would die.

:05:51.:06:01.
:06:01.:06:03.

Sarah Teale reports. The father of Reece Staples led the

:06:03.:06:07.

inquest today, saying he could not come to terms with the fact that

:06:07.:06:13.

his dying son was denied vital medical assistance. Reece died in

:06:13.:06:18.

police custody after a cocaine packet Burston his stomach. He had

:06:18.:06:21.

smuggled that drugs from Costa Rica and the day after he arrived back

:06:21.:06:26.

in this country he was arrested for a different defence and taking to

:06:26.:06:31.

the police station. Four different officers ignored him when he told

:06:31.:06:35.

them he had swallowed drugs. He collapsed are as later in the cells

:06:35.:06:42.

and died on arrival at hospital. Thus, the officers eliminated at a

:06:42.:06:45.

stroke the possibility of his survival through hospital treatment

:06:45.:06:50.

and surgery. Had he only received medical help, at least he would

:06:50.:06:56.

have had a fighting chance of life. The inquest heard that Reece would

:06:56.:07:03.

have died anyway, because his cocaine levels were so high. But an

:07:03.:07:04.

Independent Police Complaints Commission reports criticised

:07:04.:07:14.
:07:14.:07:17.

Five police officers have since been disciplined for gross

:07:17.:07:21.

misconduct, but the inquest heard that staff have not received

:07:21.:07:25.

training on guidelines introduced in 2007, stating that anyone

:07:25.:07:29.

suspected of swallowing drugs should be given immediate medical

:07:29.:07:34.

treatment. The jury returned a verdict of death by misadventure.

:07:34.:07:39.

The coroner said he was confident that the police had changed their

:07:39.:07:41.

practices to make sure that frontline officers were aware of

:07:41.:07:48.

what to do is something similar happens again.

:07:48.:07:50.

So, why weren't frontline officers trained to follow guidelines put in

:07:51.:07:56.

place two years before Reece Staples died? Well, that is the

:07:56.:07:58.

question our chief news reporter Quentin Rayner put to

:07:58.:08:05.

Nottinghamshire's Assistant Chief Constable, Paul Broadbent.

:08:05.:08:10.

I am absolutely not satisfied, that that is a feeling on the force,

:08:10.:08:14.

they did make -- did not make sure officers were aware of the

:08:14.:08:17.

guidelines, both personally in writing and having received a

:08:17.:08:22.

briefing. Obviously, back for the, there have been no deaths of a

:08:22.:08:26.

similar nature since the time of Reece's death. But why did it take

:08:27.:08:29.

a further two years for all frontline officers to receive the

:08:29.:08:36.

training? Reece died in June 2009. Within a short time, the attention

:08:36.:08:40.

of officers was brought to the existence of the policy, and a

:08:40.:08:44.

short time after that, with the IPCC recommendations came out, a

:08:44.:08:48.

formal briefing was delivered. So there was a lot on between his

:08:48.:08:54.

death and the time that that training was completed. What

:08:54.:08:59.

aspects of the five officers response alarmed you the most?

:08:59.:09:03.

guess it was the fact that a number of the officers were told by Reece

:09:03.:09:08.

that he had taken some drugs, and foreign number of reasons, all

:09:08.:09:12.

those officers did not respond as quickly as they should have done.

:09:12.:09:16.

We are presented with people on a daily basis who tell us lies. If

:09:16.:09:19.

they told us the truth all the time, maybe they would not be as much

:09:19.:09:27.

crime. But unfortunately, or five officers should have, between them,

:09:27.:09:30.

Dr but Reece had told them and should have taken more decisive

:09:30.:09:33.

action and for that, I apologised. Still to come on the programme:

:09:33.:09:37.

Water levels on the slide. As the Government issues drought warnings,

:09:37.:09:47.
:09:47.:09:51.

we have the latest aerial views of Lots of controversy today around

:09:51.:09:54.

the sport of boxing, and our own Carl Froch is right in the middle

:09:54.:10:00.

of some of it. It is because of a live interview he gave to BBC Radio

:10:00.:10:04.

Nottingham. In it, he said he could have finished his 2005 Commonwealth

:10:04.:10:08.

title defence against Ruben Groenewald in the 4th round.

:10:08.:10:11.

Instead, he deliberately avoided doing so because of bets placed on

:10:11.:10:18.

him finishing it in the 5th. Let's hear what exactly Carl said to

:10:18.:10:28.
:10:28.:10:28.

Robin Chipperfield about trying to end the fight in a particular round.

:10:28.:10:32.

I have done it a more than one occasion and it was right fight,

:10:32.:10:37.

but that is not illegal. I can say, I ended to stop him in round five,

:10:37.:10:47.
:10:47.:10:47.

if I am good enough to do that, fair enough. My friends,... Again

:10:47.:10:51.

say if I'm good enough to step on the gas to stop it, that is my

:10:51.:10:55.

privilege. That is what I did in this particular fight at the Arena.

:10:55.:10:59.

But the problem with that is, I held him up in round four. It was

:10:59.:11:03.

there for the taking and they held them up. I could have got done

:11:03.:11:06.

myself in round four. Well, Colin Hazelden has been

:11:06.:11:09.

following all of this. It sounds controversial to me, has it been?

:11:09.:11:12.

It's certainly had plenty of attention. Lots of reaction in

:11:12.:11:15.

places like Twitter and the most read story on the BBC website for

:11:15.:11:18.

most of this morning. It's not actually the first time Froch has

:11:18.:11:21.

said something along these lines. He made less direct comments about

:11:21.:11:24.

this immediately after the fight and in his autobiography. But, as

:11:24.:11:26.

one expert pointed out to me, because of cricket's scandals,

:11:26.:11:35.

times have changed. External perceptions are everything. No one

:11:35.:11:38.

wants to call suspicion down on themselves. Just think before

:11:38.:11:41.

speaking, in many respects. We think carefully about the

:11:41.:11:46.

consequences. Carl Froch said clearly he had not gambled, so he

:11:46.:11:50.

had done nothing wrong. But it is not as simple as that.

:11:50.:11:52.

So what's Carl Froch had to say today?

:11:52.:11:55.

He's been all over the media, mostly talking about the brawl

:11:55.:11:58.

between Haye and Chisora you may have seen on the news. And of

:11:58.:12:01.

course, he's been asked about what he said. A "throwaway comment" not

:12:01.:12:09.

to be taken seriously is his line. I think it has been flagged up

:12:09.:12:13.

because of the cricket issue. But in hindsight, I should not have

:12:13.:12:16.

said that throwaway comments which are set on the radio. A fight

:12:16.:12:21.

prediction is what it is. It is something fighters are like to do,

:12:21.:12:26.

to generate media attention. That is basically all I did.

:12:26.:12:30.

Will it end here, do we think? It looks like it. The British

:12:30.:12:33.

Boxing Board of Control say they've spoken to Carl, who's explained the

:12:33.:12:36.

comments. They think it's an old story. It will get discussed at the

:12:36.:12:39.

next meeting, but certainly, the indications we're getting is that

:12:39.:12:48.

Police believe a body which was found in Leicestershire yesterday

:12:48.:12:52.

is that of missing man Stuart Taylor. Officers were called to

:12:52.:12:55.

fields at Foxton near Market Harborough yesterday afternoon. The

:12:55.:12:58.

discovery was made by a dog-walker. Stuart Taylor was last seen in

:12:59.:13:01.

December and enquiries are continuing.

:13:01.:13:04.

Thieves used a mechanical digger to carry out a ram-raid on a cash-

:13:04.:13:08.

point at a Co-op store in Leicestershire. The digger was

:13:08.:13:11.

stolen from a farm in Long Clawson and then rammed into the Co-op at

:13:11.:13:15.

Asfordby at around 4am this morning. The cash-machine was damaged. It's

:13:15.:13:20.

not clear how much money was stolen. The thieves escaped in a red pick-

:13:20.:13:24.

up truck. Charities in the East Midlands tell

:13:24.:13:27.

us more people than ever before are relying on food parcels to make

:13:27.:13:32.

ends meet. Many can't afford to heat and eat. As Marie Ashby

:13:32.:13:35.

reports, food parcels have now become a lifeline for some people

:13:35.:13:45.

who you wouldn't expect to be living hand-to-mouth.

:13:45.:13:48.

Joseph's Storehouse In Love produced hub around a dozen people

:13:48.:13:53.

when it opened its doors three years ago. -- in Loughborough

:13:53.:13:58.

helped around a dozen people. Now they help thousands the. Sudden

:13:58.:14:02.

changes in circumstances and redundancies have proved more

:14:02.:14:06.

people on to the breadline. We are seeing more and more of the people

:14:06.:14:09.

who you and I would pass in the street and never think they would

:14:09.:14:13.

have to come somewhere like this. It is a very humbling thing for

:14:13.:14:17.

people to have to come here. It is really a matter of circumstances

:14:17.:14:23.

for me and with my daughter being special needs, and then my wife

:14:23.:14:28.

contracting an enormous. I have had to rely on income support. It has

:14:28.:14:34.

been very helpful. All this food at FareShare's new depot in Leicester

:14:34.:14:40.

would have ended up in landfill. Instead, it is shared out between

:14:40.:14:45.

charities around the city. Three years ago, they distributed 40 tons.

:14:45.:14:52.

That has trebled. Over the last four quarters, we have distributed

:14:52.:14:56.

over 120 tons of food. You think of the articulated lorries we see on

:14:56.:15:00.

our roads each day, that the equivalent of killing six of those

:15:00.:15:10.
:15:10.:15:10.

completely. -- that is equivalent to filling. This couple said they

:15:10.:15:16.

could not survive without their food parcels. FareShare says it is

:15:16.:15:19.

expanding to meet demand. There's more on this on tonight's

:15:19.:15:22.

Inside Out programme here on BBC One at 7.30pm, along with a profile

:15:22.:15:24.

of an East Midlands environmentalist who's enlisting

:15:24.:15:27.

the help of local school children to help save the coral on the other

:15:27.:15:31.

side of the world. Still to come on the programme, the

:15:31.:15:35.

Foxes snare the Canaries in the FA Cup. They needed a fifth-round

:15:35.:15:38.

upset in East Anglia and they got it. Now the fans are dreaming of

:15:38.:15:48.
:15:48.:15:49.

The Environment Department is warning that the East Midlands is

:15:49.:15:52.

at high risk of severe water shortages if the drier-than-average

:15:52.:15:58.

winter continues. Anglian Water says that levels at Rutland Water

:15:58.:16:01.

are worryingly low. Staff say the reservoir is under 70% capacity

:16:02.:16:06.

because of two dry winters and a lack of rain last summer and spring.

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

We sent Carol Hinds to check the level at one Derbyshire river.

:16:16.:16:21.

It is one of the shortest but prettiest rivers in Derbyshire.

:16:21.:16:25.

Villagers say the Bradford is only just recovering from one of its

:16:25.:16:30.

driest summers. For water has come back again but we had virtually no

:16:30.:16:35.

river -- water in the River Taw from August to December. It is

:16:35.:16:39.

coming back but no where near to the extent it should be. The river

:16:39.:16:43.

Bradford runs through part of the White Peak. The organisation

:16:43.:16:46.

looking after the areas as low levels cannot be blamed solely on

:16:47.:16:51.

the weather. His shoe such as the underground drainage and through

:16:51.:16:55.

the limestone, so the loss of water in some rivers is disappearing

:16:55.:17:02.

through cracks in the limestone, whether they be natural cracks or

:17:02.:17:10.

due to mines. There is due to be a meeting to discuss what could be

:17:10.:17:16.

the worst crisis over water levels in England since 1976. What can

:17:16.:17:21.

make a difference now is starting to save water now. At the moment,

:17:21.:17:25.

the river and water levels are no where near strong enough to get us

:17:25.:17:30.

through the summer. We will be in trouble again this summer. That is

:17:30.:17:33.

why tomorrow night, the Bradford redaction group will be meeting to

:17:33.:17:39.

discuss how to protect this precious resource. -- the Bradford

:17:39.:17:45.

at River action group. Time for the sport now, with Colin.

:17:45.:17:48.

Some big results for us this weekend, but Notts County are

:17:48.:17:51.

stealing all the headlines. They've named Keith Curle as their new

:17:51.:17:54.

manager less than 48 hours after the shock sacking of Martin Allen.

:17:54.:18:00.

Kirsty Edwards has more. Yes, never a dull moment! Who would

:18:00.:18:04.

have thought that at the end of last week, we would be stood here

:18:04.:18:09.

today talking about a new manager and Notts County. 48 hours after

:18:09.:18:13.

Martin Allen's surprise sacking, former Mansfield Town boss Keith

:18:13.:18:16.

Curle has been officially named as the new man in charge. He was

:18:16.:18:21.

actually recommended to the club by Neil Warnock, who he worked and at

:18:21.:18:27.

Crystal Palace and, more recently, at QPR. Give the guy a chance. See

:18:27.:18:35.

what he can do. But he has a lot to live up to of the Martin Allen.

:18:35.:18:41.

-- after Martin Allen. Both of his clubs are languishing but I will

:18:41.:18:47.

give him every chance. Martin Allen's final act as manager was a

:18:47.:18:52.

dismal 3-0 defeat at Hartlepool. Despite that, they're lying 11th in

:18:52.:18:59.

the league positions. Not disastrous. The club are keeping

:18:59.:19:03.

tight lipped saying it is being dealt with privately. Also

:19:03.:19:08.

announced today, the departures of the system manager and the first

:19:08.:19:17.

team coach, John Scofield. So, Keith Curle becomes their 7th

:19:17.:19:20.

manager in less than two and a half years. He will be here in the dug-

:19:20.:19:24.

out for the first time on Wednesday night.

:19:25.:19:27.

Nigel Clough has today confirmed that Derby County are talking about

:19:27.:19:31.

bringing in a director of football. But he's stopped short of welcoming

:19:31.:19:38.

the idea, as Jeremy Nicholas reports.

:19:38.:19:44.

Derby fans were reflecting on a 4-0 drubbing and there were reports the

:19:44.:19:48.

manager was unhappy about plans to bring in a director of football to

:19:48.:19:52.

work with him. It was suggested he was on a collision course with the

:19:52.:19:56.

club about the appointment. We have been assured talks are taking place

:19:57.:20:03.

and there has been no fall-out. But he doesn't sound too enthusiastic.

:20:03.:20:06.

We are looking to improve in any way we can but we are certainly not

:20:06.:20:13.

on a collision course. Anybody in training has far too much respect

:20:13.:20:18.

for John. So you would welcome a director of football? No, we are

:20:18.:20:23.

talking about it. Derby would not comment on speculation on who the

:20:23.:20:26.

director might be but it is widely thought to be Ross Wilson from

:20:26.:20:33.

Watford. That being said, forest needed to start well. The first of

:20:33.:20:41.

was forgettable, however. But then this happened. It was like Forrest

the first half and would have stayed that way if not for a

No such doubts about Nottingham Panthers' weekend. They beat

Sheffield Steelers, their biggest rivals. Fantastic! It has been a

busy old day! A 92-year-old bandsman is hoping to

retire after more than 80 years of playing. The only problem is, he

needs someone to take his place. Bob Taylor, from Melton, first

picked up a horn when he was six and has played in almost 30 bands

:23:59.:24:09.

He knows how to blow his own trumpet, well, bass, and he should

because he has had over 86 years of experience. Bob Taylor has had

loads of experience with the horn after picking his first one up aged

six. I was fascinated. What does this do? What does that do? And my

:24:38.:24:43.

uncle was a bandmaster. So bass was in his blood, and since then, Bob

:24:43.:24:48.

has gone on to play in more than 30 bands, even playing in London's

:24:49.:24:53.

Royal Albert Hall. He started Tornado Brass almost 30 years ago

:24:53.:24:57.

but he says the time has come for him to put down his music and make

:24:57.:25:02.

way for somebody younger. But that might not be as easy as it sounds.

:25:02.:25:09.

Locally, he is known as Mr Music, because in Milton, he has been

:25:09.:25:15.

associated with music for many, many years. Fill his shoes? No. It

:25:15.:25:21.

can't be done. Fill his seed? We hope so. So, has you run out of

:25:21.:25:31.
:25:31.:25:33.

puff? Not quite, it seems. I want to play it again with Tornado Brass

Well done, Bob! Absolutely! Here's They headline for the weather is

that temperatures are starting to rise and stay mild. Thank you for

this photo. Cast your mind back when we had the snow. The park had

:26:14.:26:22.

to cancel their Snowdrop weekend but this weekend, it is on.

:26:23.:26:26.

Temperatures are at around seven degrees on average. By Thursday we

:26:26.:26:31.

expect them to be as high as 16! We are expecting a gradual increase as

:26:31.:26:35.

we go through the next couple of days and that is because of getting

:26:35.:26:40.

the milder air. A lot of cloud through this evening and that

:26:40.:26:44.

produces a few spots of light rain and drizzle as we go through the

:26:44.:26:48.

evening overnight tonight. The cloud is holding the temperatures

:26:48.:26:55.

up with a low of just five degrees. A frost-free night tonight. Maybe a

:26:55.:26:59.

few spots of light rain in the morning but becoming drier in the

:26:59.:27:03.

afternoon and then seeing the cloud break to give some sunny spells but

:27:03.:27:08.

any sunshine will be at a premium. Already starting to see those

:27:08.:27:13.

temperatures rise. As we go further into Wednesday, it will be a windy

:27:13.:27:18.

day and we could get gusts of up to 40 miles an hour, with outbreaks of

:27:18.:27:23.

rain gradually moving east through the day. But then we get the

:27:23.:27:28.

introduction of the warm air, also 15, 16 degrees on Thursday with
