This is East Midlands Today with Anne Davies and me, Quentin Rayner.

:00:05.:00:15.
:00:15.:00:15.

Tonight, hundreds of jobs to go at British Gas.

:00:16.:00:19.

300 staff are told their jobs are going overseas.

:00:19.:00:22.

Also tonight, things are hotting up for Rangers with an earlier than

:00:22.:00:27.

usual warning of fire. Buzz, the women caught up in the

:00:27.:00:30.

breast implant scandal says the Government has acted too little too

:00:30.:00:34.

late. The longer these implants are

:00:34.:00:36.

inside us, the more damage they are doing.

:00:36.:00:43.

And, helping students to fathom out their academic futures. Nowadays,

:00:43.:00:47.

especially with the increased fees, it really is about the cause and

:00:47.:00:56.

getting the right grades. -- course.

:00:56.:01:01.

Good evening, our top story tonight: Hundreds of jobs are to go

:01:01.:01:04.

at a company in Leicester. British Gas Business made the announcement

:01:04.:01:09.

this morning. 300 posts will move overseas. The company say they need

:01:09.:01:19.

to save money and stay competitive. Helen Astle reports.

:01:19.:01:23.

The sunny skies at British Gas business were in short -- sharp

:01:23.:01:26.

contrast to the atmosphere inside the company today, where employees

:01:26.:01:31.

were given the grim news this morning. 300 jobs are to go, both

:01:31.:01:37.

here and at the side in the city. The jobs will move overseas and

:01:37.:01:42.

staff are shocked. It is upsetting because you have got colleagues who

:01:42.:01:47.

had you have worked with for so many years. What is the mood like?

:01:47.:01:52.

Not very good at the moment. But is to be expected, really. Many of the

:01:52.:01:55.

people we spoke to did not want to talk to us on camera. They describe

:01:55.:02:00.

the atmosphere inside as sombre. One woman who has worked here for

:02:00.:02:05.

24 years said the way the situation has been handled is brittle. No one

:02:05.:02:15.
:02:15.:02:28.

This is a disappointment at for the families, and clearly British Gas

:02:28.:02:33.

is a big employer, so it is a great shame. But, if you look at the

:02:33.:02:37.

current employment market, there are a lot of jobs available now for

:02:37.:02:40.

people with skills, and I'm sure that a lot of people come out of

:02:40.:02:45.

British Gas the skills that other companies are looking for. A 90 day

:02:45.:02:49.

consultation period has now begun with staff, but for many here,

:02:49.:02:55.

tonight their future is uncertain. Staying with jobs and a company in

:02:55.:02:59.

Derby is recruiting 300 new workers. AS-System is a French owned

:02:59.:03:03.

engineering firm based at a number of locations in Derby. It works

:03:03.:03:07.

closely with Rolls Royce. The company has already taken on more

:03:07.:03:11.

than 70 new staff and expects the total to be 300 over the next three

:03:11.:03:15.

years. It's keen to employ local engineers, who have transferable

:03:15.:03:21.

skills and want to move into the aerospace industry.

:03:21.:03:24.

You're watching East Midlands Today from the BBC, and there's plenty

:03:24.:03:27.

more to settle down to, including the craftsman who's making a giant

:03:27.:03:29.

throne from an ancient sweet chestnut to showcase

:03:29.:03:39.
:03:39.:03:48.

A woman who fears her health has been put at risk because of leaking

:03:48.:03:52.

breast implants says the Government has done too little too late to --

:03:52.:03:56.

too late. Jane Brown has been campaigning to get the NHS to offer

:03:56.:04:01.

more choice is to women caught up in the breast implant scandal. In a

:04:01.:04:05.

moment, we will hear from the East Midlands MP who heads the Commons

:04:05.:04:10.

health select committee, but first, he is her story.

:04:10.:04:14.

Jane told me at least one of her breast implants is leaking. Eight

:04:14.:04:18.

years ago she had been put in because she was worried about the

:04:18.:04:22.

way breast-beating had left that shape of her body. I was left with

:04:22.:04:27.

very little breast tissue after that, and it just made me really

:04:27.:04:31.

self-conscious. The operation boosted her confidence, but then

:04:31.:04:36.

the problems started. About 2008 I first started noticing problems,

:04:36.:04:40.

particularly with the left one - a deep rippling in them and lumps

:04:40.:04:45.

forming under my arms. The implants were manufactured in France. Some

:04:45.:04:50.

were filled with sub-standard silicon used as matches for love.

:04:50.:04:55.

Jane's private clinic today scan for her, and she knows one of them

:04:55.:04:59.

is leaking. It is really scary because we don't know the effects

:04:59.:05:02.

of this stuff. The thought of that leaking in the is really

:05:03.:05:07.

frightening. I have got it in my lymph nodes, I know because I can

:05:07.:05:11.

feel the lumps there. Kind of like marbles under the armpits, and you

:05:11.:05:16.

can feel them moving around. When I spoke to the NHS surgeon he said it

:05:16.:05:21.

was the silicon that has leaked into the lymph nodes. Some people

:05:21.:05:25.

say this is the price for being vain. I did not suddenly wake up

:05:25.:05:30.

one morning and think I would have a breast job. It was a long and

:05:30.:05:35.

hard decision to have them done. The NHS will remove implants.

:05:35.:05:38.

Pressure mounted today for them also to offer the chance for

:05:38.:05:43.

patients to have them replaced, but had -- perhaps with a top-up fees.

:05:43.:05:47.

A whole year has been wasted, really, from when they were first

:05:47.:05:51.

band to when we found out. The longer these implants are inside

:05:51.:05:55.

Lee, the more damage they are doing. That is where I am keen to get them

:05:55.:06:01.

out as soon as possible. Can Jane turned to the NHS before help about

:06:01.:06:04.

her implants and she had to have her as removed next month. She is

:06:04.:06:10.

not sure whether she wants new ones put in.

:06:10.:06:15.

Earlier I spoke to the chairman of the Commons health select committee,

:06:15.:06:20.

MP locally. I asked him why the committee objected to the end the -

:06:20.:06:24.

- NHS only removing the implants and not replacing them as well.

:06:24.:06:28.

is important to be clear about the principles here, which is that an

:06:28.:06:32.

implantation was made which was faulty in the private sector, and

:06:32.:06:35.

therefore the first responsibility for putting this right rests on the

:06:35.:06:41.

private clinic that inserted the faulty implants. What the NHS has

:06:41.:06:45.

said and the committee agrees with the Government about this is that

:06:45.:06:50.

if the private clinic won't do that, then the woman should be able to

:06:50.:06:56.

rely on a removal of a faulty implant by an NHS hospital when

:06:56.:07:01.

that is clinically required. The NHS should send the bill to the

:07:01.:07:05.

private sector that put that faulty implant in in the first prize. The

:07:05.:07:09.

difficulty arises when a woman chooses to have a replacement

:07:09.:07:12.

implant inserted and in those circumstances the Government is

:07:12.:07:16.

currently saying that it needs to be done on a separate day - in

:07:16.:07:21.

other words, the woman needs to go through two separate operations to

:07:21.:07:26.

have that achieved. The committee things that is not only to find

:07:26.:07:30.

common sense, to require a woman to go through to operations where only

:07:30.:07:35.

one is necessary, it is also very bad medicine, to be putting a woman

:07:35.:07:39.

through to procedures were only one is necessary. What are you

:07:39.:07:43.

suggesting? That the woman pays for the replacement at the same time as

:07:43.:07:49.

removal? Indeed. We think that, where a woman chooses to have a

:07:49.:07:55.

replacement implant, it is clearly continuing to be a private

:07:55.:07:58.

procedure -- no one is suggesting the NHS should pay for this

:07:58.:08:03.

procedure, but it should be open to the woman to have it done while she

:08:03.:08:07.

is in hospital, having the original implant removed. But the Government

:08:07.:08:12.

says that this flies in the face of a founding principle of the NHS,

:08:12.:08:16.

that nobody pays for treatment on the NHS. If you go down this road,

:08:16.:08:22.

it will set an unwelcome precedent. I think that is to interpret the

:08:22.:08:26.

rules, and I am very familiar with the rules and I am committed to the

:08:26.:08:31.

principle that NHS care should be available to everyone for free. No

:08:31.:08:36.

one is saying that there should be a purely cosmetic procedure

:08:36.:08:45.

available on the NHS. But NHS hospitals, many -- they do many

:08:45.:08:49.

private sector procedures. All we are saying is that in these

:08:49.:08:53.

circumstances, a woman should not be expected to go through to

:08:53.:08:56.

operations where only one is necessary, and that the private

:08:56.:09:02.

insertion of a new implant should be available at the same time as

:09:02.:09:07.

the removal of the old implant, the cost of which everyone accepts,

:09:07.:09:11.

including the Government, should be charged to the clinic that inserted

:09:11.:09:21.
:09:21.:09:27.

the faulty implant. Two men have been found guilty of the murder of

:09:27.:09:30.

a former policeman from Leicester. The body of Paul Fyfe, who was 47,

:09:30.:09:35.

was found at a house in Rowlatts Hill in the city last June. He died

:09:35.:09:39.

from a single stab wound to the chest. Mohammed Adnam Hirsi and

:09:39.:09:43.

Ameen Hassan Jogee have been jailed for a total of 42 years.

:09:43.:09:47.

Next tonight, a court's heard the former president of the UDM has

:09:47.:09:51.

been accused of false accounting, of being "palpably dishonest" and a

:09:51.:09:54.

liar. Neil Greatrex repeatedly denied the allegations. He, along

:09:54.:09:57.

with fellow mining union leader Mick Stevens, are both charged with

:09:57.:10:01.

stealing almost �150,000 from a charity. They controlled the money

:10:01.:10:04.

which was meant to care for sick and elderly miners. Nottingham

:10:04.:10:08.

Crown's court's been told they used it instead, to carry out

:10:08.:10:12.

improvements to their own homes. Mick Stevens, who also denies the

:10:12.:10:15.

charges, is due to appear in court tomorrow.

:10:15.:10:17.

Extra patrols are being mounted in the Derbyshire Peak District as

:10:17.:10:20.

concern grows about the threat of moorland fires. Rangers said they

:10:20.:10:23.

had never issued this kind of warning this early, but the dry

:10:23.:10:26.

weather and warm temperatures are ideal conditions for fires to break

:10:26.:10:34.

out. Visitors are also being advised about the dangers. We can

:10:34.:10:40.

just see you there, Carolyn. Blair, I am in the Derbyshire Peak

:10:40.:10:43.

District on what looks like a glorious summer's evening. In fact,

:10:43.:10:49.

it has been a day of short sleeves, shades, and unbroken sunshine. And

:10:50.:10:54.

this is march! Combine that with an unseasonally dry winter, and

:10:54.:10:57.

impending school holidays when there are lots of visitors expected

:10:57.:11:02.

here, and you will understand why Rangers are particularly worried

:11:02.:11:07.

about this tinder-dry bracken. They are signs usually seen in

:11:07.:11:12.

summer, but this year, fire season has come early, and with it, the

:11:12.:11:16.

warnings. The dry winter means a warm, sunny spring could be even

:11:16.:11:19.

riskier than mid- July. Even a simple cigarette could start a

:11:19.:11:25.

wildfire. There is so much dead grass and bracken. All sorts of

:11:25.:11:31.

things that can just burn very easily, potentially the peat and

:11:31.:11:35.

her the catching fire. Once that is a light it can burn underground for

:11:35.:11:40.

periods of days or even weeks. year there were a number of fires

:11:40.:11:45.

in April, but Rangers admit warnings this early are unusual.

:11:45.:11:49.

is certainly showing stress from lack of water. They say if a fire

:11:49.:11:54.

happens now, the results could be far-reaching. We have

:11:54.:11:57.

internationally important species that breed on the moorland, and

:11:57.:12:01.

they are all ground-nesting birds. And also, the animals are starting

:12:01.:12:07.

to have their young, so the Lambs was to be out. Any fires are a

:12:07.:12:16.

potential threat to them. And, it is not just wildlife. Walkers, too,

:12:16.:12:20.

said they have been thrown by the timing of the warnings. I am really

:12:20.:12:26.

shocked about that. I can't even remember that we have had one. To

:12:26.:12:32.

be getting one now is really bad. It is really like a tinderbox up

:12:32.:12:38.

there. It is really very dry. after any fire receding the burnt

:12:38.:12:42.

areas of the Peak District can also be a major operation. With hotter,

:12:42.:12:46.

drier summers and springs been forecast for coming years, it is

:12:46.:12:52.

work that is not going to go away as the risks increase.

:12:52.:12:56.

Just to reiterate, they are asking for no naked flames, cigarettes, a

:12:56.:13:00.

barbecue. To show just how seriously they are taking this risk

:13:00.:13:04.

of fires, they have been training all week here in the Peak District

:13:04.:13:08.

- Rangers, fire officers, gamekeepers, coming together to

:13:08.:13:12.

practise their fire-fighting skills. The hopers, with proper care, they

:13:12.:13:22.
:13:22.:13:23.

won't need to put them into It is a double worry for young

:13:23.:13:27.

people, rising tuition fees and high unemployment. Teenager's face

:13:27.:13:31.

tough choices when deciding whether to go to university or enter the

:13:31.:13:34.

world of work. So universities from across the

:13:34.:13:37.

country came together as today for a fair to highlight what students

:13:37.:13:45.

would get for their money. They came in their thousands. Mind

:13:45.:13:48.

and a half 1000 to be precise over the course of today and tomorrow.

:13:48.:13:52.

Teenagers from across the region, at the end of their school career

:13:52.:13:58.

and now wondering whether to embark on a new one at university. People

:13:59.:14:04.

don't want to go because these are high. A lot of people want to go to

:14:05.:14:14.

college but the fees are high. INDISTINCT.

:14:14.:14:22.

With tuition fees now costing up to �9,000 a year, or respect its --

:14:22.:14:25.

prospective students are asking questions about the quality of

:14:25.:14:30.

courses on offer and what sort of Careers they could lead to in the

:14:30.:14:31.

future. Nationally, university applications

:14:31.:14:36.

are down three per cent. He in Derby they -- there have been eight

:14:36.:14:41.

per cent fewer. A sign of the so- called rush tradition with more

:14:41.:14:45.

established universities seen as a better investment for many

:14:45.:14:51.

prospective students and their parents. We are looking for the

:14:51.:14:54.

complete package, to get the right course with good employment

:14:54.:14:58.

prospects after that. We have noticed people are looking at

:14:58.:15:02.

traditional subjects a bit more, maybe not vocational ones as much,

:15:02.:15:07.

and we would say if you want a job in media or fashion, though is our

:15:07.:15:13.

traditional Careers and still require those courses. People are

:15:13.:15:17.

looking at how to pay accommodation fees. Derby is hoping hosting the

:15:17.:15:21.

event will hope to sell its courses to others who may decide to stay a

:15:21.:15:28.

little closer to home. Simon Hare, East Midlands Today, Derby.

:15:28.:15:33.

Now something you may not be aware of, there are apparently now more

:15:33.:15:36.

herons nesting at the Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire

:15:36.:15:40.

than ever before. I thought you were going from Monty

:15:40.:15:46.

Python joke? There are now 14 s compared to 25 in previous years.

:15:47.:15:52.

Tom Brown has more. Hunting for herons, something that

:15:52.:15:56.

this year seems particularly easy. So far 41 nests have been found at

:15:56.:15:59.

Attenborough Nature Reserve, which now makes it the largest heronry in

:15:59.:16:06.

the county. Once we got beyond 25 and knew we still have more we

:16:06.:16:09.

started getting excited, then we once cut -- once we got be on 30

:16:09.:16:13.

and into the port is we were really excited and knew we were on to

:16:13.:16:18.

record for the site -- into the Forties. Why this increase? The

:16:18.:16:21.

mild winter has certainly helped but the Wildlife Trust has also put

:16:21.:16:25.

it down to the Prime wetland habitat on offer here, including

:16:25.:16:30.

good quality water for of the brain needed to feed the and heron chicks.

:16:30.:16:34.

-- full of the prey needed. The Wild Life Trust says this could

:16:34.:16:37.

lead to even more Herren nests in future. It is great for people

:16:37.:16:41.

visiting the reserve to see the behaviours of herons which they may

:16:41.:16:45.

be wouldn't have seen in the past before at such close quarters. If

:16:45.:16:48.

the increase in numbers will be great news but we are lucky enough

:16:48.:16:52.

to have her heronry of this size here at Attenborough. It is big,

:16:52.:16:56.

you can see it easily and it doesn't hide. Unlike a lot of those

:16:57.:17:00.

little grey or brown things it is easy to see, you don't need a

:17:00.:17:04.

telescope or binoculars or an expensive camera, you can just look

:17:04.:17:07.

here and see quite clearly, it is not difficult to see. With the

:17:07.:17:11.

number of Heron's now creeping into triple figures, it could be more

:17:11.:17:17.

than just the unseasonable weather but helps drawing the crowds. --

:17:17.:17:20.

that helps. From the countryside to the town,

:17:20.:17:24.

Grantham is bidding for a share of funds from the scheme promoted by

:17:24.:17:30.

the retail expert Mary Portas. The government has a �1 million pot of

:17:30.:17:33.

cash to boost town centres. Business leaders in Grantham want

:17:33.:17:37.

to improve the look of the town and attract more shoppers. Market

:17:37.:17:40.

Harborough in Leicestershire has also confirmed it has applied for

:17:40.:17:45.

funding from the scheme. What you do with the 350-year-old

:17:45.:17:47.

tree that has blown down in the wind?

:17:47.:17:55.

Do you have a great big bonfire? No. One man's answer is to make it into

:17:55.:18:00.

a giant throne, of course, as Peter Snow reports, it is all about

:18:00.:18:03.

showcasing Nottinghamshire's skills in Italy.

:18:03.:18:06.

Patrick Turk has worked with would all his life, but his latest

:18:06.:18:10.

commission is a chair, or rather a throne, with a difference. This

:18:11.:18:16.

thing is huge, it is 8 ft high, to the top the seat is just under 3 ft,

:18:16.:18:23.

and the arms of 50 of inches of the ground, so it is huge. -- 50 of

:18:23.:18:27.

inches. Not a normal chair. wood has come from a giant tree,

:18:27.:18:31.

which Patrick named the restoration tree. The so called Restoration

:18:31.:18:35.

tree was planted here in Sherwood Forest by William Cavendish first

:18:35.:18:41.

Duke of Newcastle. 350 years later when it blew down in a gale it

:18:41.:18:45.

provided the wood and the inspiration for some furniture.

:18:45.:18:50.

fact that Patrick works with trees that grow in Sherwood Forest is

:18:50.:18:55.

incredibly inspiring. It is unique, incredibly, and I think the world

:18:55.:18:59.

will want it once they get to know about it as well, and also the fact

:18:59.:19:03.

that he is using traditional craftsmanship. The machine couldn't

:19:03.:19:07.

make a thrown out of these pictures are -- pieces of wood because it is

:19:07.:19:12.

twisted, particularly at the back, where it came off the trunk and was

:19:12.:19:17.

milled, there for every single rail on the side is a different length.

:19:17.:19:22.

The finished Rome will be taken to the International Design Festival

:19:22.:19:24.

in Milan in two weeks -- finished throne. Meanwhile, the first

:19:24.:19:28.

finished panel has returned to the forest. I like to bring some of it

:19:28.:19:32.

back to the woodland it came from, and when the throne is finished her

:19:32.:19:35.

plea of the weather was nice we will bring it here and put it in

:19:35.:19:39.

front of the tree -- hopefully if the weather is nice. The tree is

:19:39.:19:43.

not dead. New buds have appeared and in 350 years' time it could be

:19:43.:19:49.

back to its original height. How fabulous!

:19:50.:19:55.

Beautiful. Good use of an old tree. I would love a throne!

:19:55.:20:01.

And we are all in the pink today. Pretty pink faced as well today in

:20:01.:20:03.

the heat, but is there more to come?

:20:03.:20:08.

Yes, it will last for another glorious day across the East

:20:08.:20:11.

Midlands tomorrow, but advice from me, keep your coats and scarves

:20:11.:20:21.
:20:21.:20:23.

It is cricketing weather, I would say.

:20:23.:20:28.

Need to. We could be playing it now.

:20:28.:20:31.

There is cricket to come, but we will start with football, and while

:20:31.:20:35.

we have been spoiled for the sunshine so far, Notts bowled four

:20:35.:20:41.

goals last night I am afraid. Leicester's pygmies -- East

:20:41.:20:46.

Midlands derby ended goalless. -- not spoilt for goals. The foxes

:20:46.:20:51.

have edged just a little closer to the play-off places.

:20:51.:20:55.

These lads were certainly dreaming of scoring for Leicester before the

:20:55.:20:59.

game, and both sets of fans were arriving confident of seeing lots

:20:59.:21:06.

of goals. Death and at Leicester win, 3-nil. -- definite Leicester

:21:06.:21:13.

win. Confident, 3-0. Easy win for Nottingham Forest. Leicester are

:21:14.:21:20.

going to win for definite. 3-1. Come on you reds!

:21:20.:21:24.

So expectations were high, in the end, though, neither keeper was

:21:25.:21:29.

trouble too much, both sides with the odd chance to grab all three

:21:29.:21:33.

points, forest with some early pressure, without any real cutting

:21:33.:21:38.

edge. Leicester's best chance is probably fell to the two plays it -

:21:38.:21:42.

- players who scored in Saturday's win. Ben Marshall phantoms of in

:21:42.:21:46.

some space with the crowd urging him to shoot -- found himself in

:21:46.:21:50.

some space. He obliged but it missed the goal. Then Lloyd Dyer

:21:50.:21:54.

had a chance to get on the scoresheet and leasing a shot that

:21:54.:22:00.

went narrowly wide -- unleashing. In the second half the Reds had a

:22:00.:22:04.

great chance to break the debt -- deadlock with Dexter backstop's

:22:04.:22:08.

header hitting the bar. But a. Leaves the foxes four points of the

:22:09.:22:15.

play-offs and the reds are away from danger, an important point for

:22:15.:22:19.

them then. All in all we are pleased with the point. We knew it

:22:19.:22:22.

would be a tough game, and it is a measure of how far we have come

:22:22.:22:27.

since last time, which wasn't very good at all. Many sides are

:22:27.:22:33.

slipping up, so a two point drop for as in some ways, but we still

:22:33.:22:39.

believe we have a fighting chance. News from Derby County, Captain

:22:39.:22:42.

Shaun Barker has been under the surgeon's knife today having an

:22:42.:22:45.

operation on the knee he injured during the match against Nottingham

:22:45.:22:50.

Forest. It was a really nasty injury. He dislocated his kneecap

:22:50.:22:54.

and ruptured his medial and cruciate ligaments. He is expected

:22:54.:23:00.

to be out for a year. He has been unlucky in a sense as he has

:23:00.:23:04.

already had injuries, so he knows what to expect. He is a strong

:23:04.:23:07.

enough character to know what he is coming towards, and he will work

:23:07.:23:11.

hard and come better -- come back a better player. In ice hockey, there

Their hopes of a second trophy so that a major setback as they lost

really have to pull something out of the back for Saturday's return

leg at the National Ice Centre. In rugby now, Leicester Tigers have

suspended Ben Youngs for a week after an internal disciplinary

where he was cited for striking an opponent in the win over London

Irish. In cricket, Nottinghamshire's Graeme Swann took

:23:47.:23:50.

six second innings wickets for England against Sri Lanka, but they

:23:50.:23:55.

will have to make history tomorrow to win. England need a record 340

:23:55.:24:00.

runs on the final day. Closer to home, and the domestic

:24:00.:24:05.

cricket season starts next week, but Derbyshire are also planning

:24:05.:24:08.

well beyond this season, they are hunting for future young talent

:24:09.:24:13.

within the county and getting the first team players to help by

:24:13.:24:16.

taking coaching sessions. Jeremy Nicholas has more.

:24:16.:24:19.

A under the new scheme, Derbyshire players now have written into their

:24:19.:24:22.

contract that they must give up some of their time to coach

:24:22.:24:26.

youngsters, and it seems they are only too happy to help. Having come

:24:26.:24:32.

through the system myself, it seems like five minutes and so was he the

:24:32.:24:35.

Academy doing these sessions, so for me personally it is great to be

:24:35.:24:38.

here helping out every way I can, and these lads in the first-team

:24:39.:24:43.

squad at the moment feel the same, I know. It is important for asked

:24:43.:24:46.

to come back and talk to the young guys because it was only a few

:24:46.:24:49.

years ago we were in their position being coached off guys we looked up

:24:50.:24:53.

to playing first-team cricket, so it is definitely important for us

:24:53.:24:56.

to come down and pass on our knowledge. With limited resources

:24:56.:24:59.

to attract top players to the county, Derbyshire had to discover

:24:59.:25:05.

local talent and develop it. -- hope to discover. It is vital. The

:25:05.:25:08.

academy will provide us with the life blood of the future teams. It

:25:08.:25:13.

is going back to how things were when you and I grew up, really,

:25:13.:25:18.

when we saw local Gap -- lads playing from local county side, the

:25:18.:25:22.

likes of Bob Taylor, Geoff Miller, Mike Hendrick, local lads, great

:25:22.:25:27.

for Derbyshire, who represented England. They is nothing better.

:25:27.:25:30.

The players enjoy seeing the youngsters prosper but owners of

:25:30.:25:35.

warning about them progressing too quickly. -- there are warnings.

:25:35.:25:38.

need to keep your eye open to make sure they are not trying to steal

:25:39.:25:44.

my place! -- I need to keep an eye open.

:25:44.:25:48.

It will probably pour with rain next week when the season starts!

:25:49.:25:56.

It will last into tomorrow when we have high pressures and high

:25:56.:26:00.

temperatures for the time of the year. However, at this time of the

:26:00.:26:04.

we have chilly night, which is on the cards tonight. Firstly, Jamie,

:26:04.:26:08.

thank you very much for this picture. He took it yesterday at

:26:08.:26:11.

Loughborough University with his brand new camera and needed lots of

:26:11.:26:17.

patience to get a shot, so thanks for that. E-mail us, the addresses

:26:17.:26:21.

on the screen. We started the week with high pressure in the North Sea

:26:21.:26:24.

which stayed with us for the last couple of days, gradually moving

:26:24.:26:29.

across the UK and slowly today out into the Atlantic. It will cling on

:26:29.:26:32.

for the next 24 hours to bring another beautiful day tomorrow, but

:26:32.:26:35.

will then move away into the end of the week when temperatures will

:26:35.:26:38.

come down quite considerably, you will notice. This evening we have

:26:38.:26:43.

clear skies, lovely early evening sunshine before it gets dark, and

:26:43.:26:46.

then with clearer skies overnight tonight it might get cold enough in

:26:46.:26:50.

rural spots to see frost to start the morning, a little bit of Mr in

:26:50.:26:57.

places, but mostly minivans of four Celsius -- mist in places. Tomorrow

:26:57.:27:01.

morning we will have a chilly start, clear skies and yet again another

:27:01.:27:04.

glorious day right across the East Midlands. A couple of degrees

:27:04.:27:09.

cooler tomorrow, around about 21 Celsius, 70 Fahrenheit. You will

:27:09.:27:13.

notice it is lower, of course, there, but still doing nicely

:27:13.:27:18.

across this time of the year on the coast. High pressure still on

:27:18.:27:22.

Friday but we are in for a decent day, plenty of sunshine but

:27:22.:27:26.

temperatures starting to come down on Friday, 16 Celsius your high,
