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

:00:02.:00:05.

Our top story tonight, time for the tarmac tax. Nottingham's workplace

:00:05.:00:15.

parking levy starts on Sunday. There is criticism from business

:00:15.:00:18.

leaders that it will drive firms out of the city. Plus, when it

:00:18.:00:23.

raised as much money as the council had hoped?

:00:23.:00:28.

Also: 10 operating theatres could close as hospitals in Leicester

:00:28.:00:32.

look for more big savings. A of course people are worried and in a

:00:32.:00:36.

sense, we are worried and it is our duty to be worried so refocus on

:00:36.:00:42.

doing this properly. Plus: fears of a fuel shortage

:00:42.:00:46.

spark another day of queues and shortages.

:00:46.:00:51.

And who is a lucky girl? Sally helps smooth for the way for a lamb

:00:51.:01:01.
:01:01.:01:05.

Good evening and welcome to the programme. First tonight,

:01:05.:01:09.

Nottingham becomes the first city in the UK to charge people to park

:01:09.:01:13.

at work and it starts this weekend. Business leaders fear it will drive

:01:13.:01:17.

companies out of the city and stop others from moving in. The council

:01:18.:01:22.

says the money raised will help it to invest in public transport. But

:01:22.:01:25.

fewer spaces than anticipated have been registered and, as a result,

:01:25.:01:33.

the council now faces a �2 million shortfall.

:01:33.:01:37.

It is controversial and will cost businesses thousands of pounds a

:01:37.:01:42.

year. The workplace parking levy comes into force this Sunday. His

:01:42.:01:46.

is the first place in the sup -- in the country to charge people to

:01:46.:01:49.

charge at work. Business leaders fear the charge will drive

:01:49.:01:54.

companies out of the city. This lorry servicing company which has

:01:54.:02:00.

been in Nottingham since 1985 says it will look to relocate. It is

:02:00.:02:04.

like having a 20 % hike in business rates. Imagine having to take that

:02:04.:02:09.

cost with no benefit. One of the lease is up in five years, we will

:02:09.:02:15.

be looking to move out of the zone. Obviously, we will not have to then

:02:15.:02:20.

worry about the cost. Businesses with 10 or fewer spaces will not be

:02:20.:02:25.

charged but companies with 11 spaces or more will have to pay

:02:25.:02:32.

�288 a year for each one. This company will pick up for �5,000

:02:32.:02:39.

bill for its 19 spaces and 30 staff. In this current climate, �5,000

:02:39.:02:44.

represents a significant amount of turnover. We would have to get at

:02:44.:02:48.

least another �150,000 worth of business to stand still. The levy

:02:49.:02:54.

applies to a total of 20,000 car parking spaces. That is 10,000

:02:54.:03:00.

fewer than first expected. The council says it should raise �80

:03:00.:03:04.

million, �2 million short of the target. But council leaders say

:03:04.:03:08.

they are confident the income will meet targets over the next few

:03:08.:03:12.

years and the money will be invested in local transport,

:03:12.:03:16.

including the extension of the tram network. I think the council is

:03:16.:03:19.

here to represent the people of Nottingham and I don't think they

:03:19.:03:23.

are doing that. They have not taken into account how we feel about it.

:03:23.:03:26.

Nottingham may be the first but more than half a dozen other cities

:03:26.:03:32.

are now considering a workplace parking levy.

:03:32.:03:35.

Joining us now is Graham Chapman, Deputy Leader of Nottingham City

:03:35.:03:41.

Council. Councillor Chapman, what do you say to companies who say

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

this is effectively a 20% increase on business rates? I would say that

:03:51.:03:55.

what this city has got to do his advance and it needs to keep

:03:55.:03:59.

transport investment going, especially under present conditions.

:03:59.:04:03.

Without this investment, there would be no additional tramline, no

:04:03.:04:08.

improvement in this station. We would have to take the buses off

:04:08.:04:11.

and would have no prospect of increasing the tram network in

:04:11.:04:16.

future years. Therefore, we've got to keep investment going and the

:04:16.:04:21.

biggest beneficiaries of investment are businesses. Businesses say they

:04:21.:04:26.

are not going to stay here. Nottingham's Forum of Private

:04:26.:04:30.

Business says, it sends out a clear signal to anyone thinking of

:04:30.:04:33.

setting up business in Nottingham, to look elsewhere. We are not

:04:33.:04:36.

finding out. Inevitably, any tax is going to be unpopular. You are

:04:36.:04:40.

going to get a bit of exaggeration and that is what happening. Some

:04:40.:04:43.

business leaders to recognise its benefits. We've had no sign that

:04:44.:04:47.

people are moving out because the costs do not justify it. Moreover,

:04:48.:04:54.

we've had one company relocating with InterCity and another just

:04:54.:04:57.

vacations is it will be near the tramline. It is one of the

:04:57.:05:02.

bargaining tools we have to try and get the Broad Marsh reinvested in.

:05:02.:05:06.

What about the claim for a business and who says you are fading with to

:05:06.:05:11.

represent people. They didn't ask for this lovely. No, they didn't,

:05:11.:05:14.

but sometimes you've got to take decisions for the next 20 years and

:05:15.:05:18.

this is what we're doing. On that basis, we would never have invested

:05:18.:05:28.
:05:28.:05:29.

in Suez, in schools, in anything public. -- sewers. Is it going to

:05:29.:05:32.

take 20 years before you know whether this has worked, whether

:05:33.:05:38.

this has benefited the city? No, I think we will know quite soon. The

:05:38.:05:43.

other advantages it creates jobs. It believers in the millions of

:05:43.:05:48.

pounds worth of government investment. Without the levy, we

:05:48.:05:53.

would not have had the money to pay for our part of the triumph.

:05:53.:05:57.

Briefly, you are not concerned about this �2 million shortfall in

:05:57.:06:02.

the first year. No, because we look over 20 years and we think it will

:06:02.:06:07.

balance out. We are also cutting our cloth. We are very efficient at

:06:07.:06:12.

producing tram systems, and like another of other cities.

:06:12.:06:22.
:06:22.:06:25.

-- unlike. Still to come on the programme: a drug implant that can

:06:25.:06:28.

restore sight. We report from a hospital where 12 patients have

:06:28.:06:35.

already benefited from the new Many fuel pumps across the East

:06:35.:06:40.

Midlands ran dry again today because of panic buying.

:06:40.:06:43.

Even though the threat of strike action by tanker drivers over

:06:43.:06:46.

Easter has been ruled out, drivers have still been queueing to fill

:06:46.:06:53.

their tanks. Simon is at a filling station in Derby now.

:06:53.:06:57.

This petrol station is normally very busy, particularly at this

:06:57.:07:01.

time of night, but as you can see, the forecourt is deserted. That is

:07:01.:07:06.

because the entrance is combed off and as the sign says, no fuel. When

:07:06.:07:10.

the there was some fuel earlier this morning, apparently the cars

:07:10.:07:14.

were queuing out on to the busy road. That was a scene repeated

:07:14.:07:20.

across the region today. Despite the tanker drivers' union saying

:07:20.:07:25.

that they were not going to stage any industrial action over Easter,

:07:25.:07:29.

the panic buying has continued, with some garages and supermarkets

:07:29.:07:33.

have and to lay on staff to control the traffic. As well as the panic

:07:33.:07:36.

leading to the shortage is that everybody was worried about in the

:07:36.:07:40.

first place, it has also led to price rises in some places, with

:07:40.:07:45.

many garages now charging more than one pound 50 a litre for diesel.

:07:45.:07:51.

Here, they are hoping for a delivery sometime overnight. -- 1

:07:51.:07:57.

and 50 and 80. Earlier, my colleague was at a garage when a

:07:57.:08:01.

tanker arrived. The it was delivery time but

:08:01.:08:05.

Rosemary Street service station but they had been out of fuel since

:08:06.:08:10.

yesterday, after record sales. We've been flat out. We are doing

:08:10.:08:15.

four or five deliveries a day. Passing drivers quickly spotted the

:08:15.:08:18.

delivery. I came out and saw everyone queuing and thought I'd

:08:18.:08:23.

better get some petrol. It's getting serious. The last place

:08:23.:08:27.

only allowed me �10. It will be about another 15 minutes before you

:08:27.:08:31.

can get fuel. The garage owner says panic-buying is bad for business.

:08:31.:08:36.

We've sold the fuel anywhere but it is the knock-on effects. If they

:08:36.:08:39.

are not coming in for the fuel, they will not be buying the other

:08:39.:08:43.

stuff either. With the queues have come price rises. James says costs

:08:43.:08:52.

have risen as well. Our price went up so the price has to go up to the

:08:52.:08:57.

customer. It only went up by the same rate. There has been no price

:08:57.:09:02.

hike. If the rush for fuel continues, this 18,000 LEA to load

:09:03.:09:10.

might only last until tomorrow. -- 18,000 litres.

:09:10.:09:13.

Derbyshire Fire Service is so worried about people potentially

:09:13.:09:17.

stockpiling fuel, they've issued -- issued a warning saying not only

:09:17.:09:21.

could you be wishing -- risking your safety but it could lead to a

:09:21.:09:25.

criminal conviction as well. Next tonight, 400 posts could go

:09:25.:09:28.

and 10 operating theatres could close at one of the biggest

:09:28.:09:36.

hospital trusts in the East Midlands.

:09:36.:09:39.

The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has got to make

:09:39.:09:43.

savings of �35 million in the next financial year.

:09:43.:09:46.

The plans, which hospital bosses say won't affect patient care, were

:09:46.:09:51.

discussed at a board meeting today. These are tough times for

:09:51.:09:54.

Leicester's hospitals. This financial year, millions of pounds

:09:54.:09:59.

of cuts had to be made and more are to come. Of course people are

:09:59.:10:02.

worried and in a sense, we are worried and it is our duty to be

:10:02.:10:06.

worried so we focused on doing this properly. We think there are

:10:06.:10:10.

opportunities, not only to preserve frontline services, strengthening

:10:10.:10:14.

them. The way we have been providing services and the

:10:14.:10:18.

challenges on us are that the fund and has to be strengthened. How can

:10:18.:10:23.

you do that? We've got to do both. They have cut a lot of money this

:10:23.:10:26.

year and a lot of jobs over the last of months. They keep cutting

:10:26.:10:31.

their cloth. It can only go so far. Patient care does it affected.

:10:31.:10:36.

Bosses are hoping to reduce the wage bill but over -- by over �14

:10:36.:10:41.

million a year, 400 posts could go. That is two weeks' wages so we are

:10:41.:10:46.

talking about �14 million out of a turnover of �700 million.

:10:46.:10:49.

repetition of this trust has gone down in the last 12 months and that

:10:49.:10:52.

is mainly because of a lack of numbers of staff on the wards.

:10:52.:10:56.

Things need to change. I do understand the need to save money

:10:56.:10:59.

but cutting jobs all the time is never a good thing. The proposals

:10:59.:11:03.

are just that at the moment. They are due to be discussed again next

:11:03.:11:08.

Thursday. A man's died after a van and lorry

:11:08.:11:13.

collided in a lay by near Derby. It happened on the A52 at Borrowash,

:11:13.:11:17.

just after nine o'clock this morning. It meant the dual

:11:17.:11:20.

carriageway out of Derby was closed for almost five hours. The van

:11:20.:11:24.

driver died. Police want to hear from anyone who saw the accident.

:11:24.:11:27.

The sale of the Castle Donington airline BMI has been approved by

:11:27.:11:37.

the European Commission. The company's being bought by IAG,

:11:37.:11:46.

which already owns British Airways and the Spanish airline Iberia. The

:11:46.:11:49.

deal's thought to be worth around a �170 million. It's been given the

:11:49.:11:53.

go ahead, after IAG agreed to give up some of its flights at Heathrow.

:11:53.:11:56.

More patients are benefiting from a new treatment that can restore

:11:56.:11:58.

their sight. Nottinghamshire's Kingsmill Hospital was one of the

:11:58.:12:02.

first to offer it on the NHS. And there's been an encouraging

:12:02.:12:12.
:12:12.:12:12.

response. 12 patients have so far been treated and are doing well.

:12:12.:12:16.

This woman was going blind and a new treatment has saved her sight.

:12:16.:12:22.

A in a plant was put in her left eye, soaked in a very powerful

:12:22.:12:29.

steroid. -- and in plant. She had problems because of a certain

:12:29.:12:35.

condition. Once it is blocked, it gets jammed. It leaks along with

:12:35.:12:40.

fluid form the jammed blood vessels and causes damage to the photo

:12:40.:12:44.

receptors in the retina. A such as the improvement, that she says she

:12:44.:12:47.

can now read. She says the treatment has made a world of

:12:47.:12:53.

difference. Since I had been planned, the fish in his Clearing,

:12:53.:13:03.
:13:03.:13:05.

slowly but surely, so I can now see properly. -- inplant. Putting in

:13:05.:13:09.

the anti-inflammatory drug returns the rest in that way normal state.

:13:09.:13:13.

Brenda got a good result because the problem. Early. I didn't

:13:13.:13:17.

realise how bad it could have been. Before I had a chance to worry

:13:17.:13:23.

about it, everything was cleared up. Within one week. What this shows is

:13:23.:13:27.

just how fault medical red and the treatment has come in the last five

:13:27.:13:31.

years. -- just how far. They've done 12 patients with this new

:13:31.:13:35.

treatment and they are all said to be doing really well. If the

:13:35.:13:45.
:13:45.:13:46.

problems come back, the treatment can be repeated. Trading Standards

:13:46.:13:49.

say that nearly every car-boot sale will have counterfeit goods on

:13:49.:13:51.

offer. Leicestershire officers say this year they've already seized

:13:51.:13:54.

�350,000 of clothing at car boots. Today thousands of pounds of fake

:13:54.:13:56.

designer handbags, tops and footwear were de-branded and

:13:56.:14:01.

donated to charity. Now running one marathon for

:14:01.:14:05.

charity would be more than enough for most of us but how would you

:14:05.:14:10.

fancy running a marathon a day - for a month!?

:14:10.:14:13.

Well, it sounds extreme, but that's the plan of a runner from

:14:13.:14:16.

Derbyshire. Gerard Varan is running more than 700 miles to Switzerland,

:14:16.:14:19.

to raise money for breast cancer research after nine friends of his

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

developed the disease. Out training, Gerard replicates the

:14:34.:14:41.

kind of parts he will encounter. This Sunday, he starts his 740 mile

:14:41.:14:44.

run all the way from Derbyshire to the Swiss village he is from

:14:44.:14:48.

originally. He is doing it after learning the plight of an unusually

:14:48.:14:53.

large number of women in Duffield. Nine people in the village I know

:14:53.:15:00.

of have had breast cancer. It is staggering. I thought it would be a

:15:00.:15:05.

good idea to promote breast-cancer screening and the -- reduce the

:15:05.:15:08.

amount of people who contract the disease. Two of those patients are

:15:08.:15:12.

Tracey and Louise. Gerard is absolutely awesome. I think it is

:15:12.:15:15.

fantastic that he is doing this huge run to raise money for breast

:15:15.:15:23.

cancer. The money is going to press cancer accounts -- campaign, and

:15:23.:15:26.

they fund research so we hope it will make a big difference to help

:15:26.:15:33.

save lives. Following the foot paths, right up to the Swiss /

:15:33.:15:37.

French border of... Gerard will be leaving behind his own wife and

:15:37.:15:40.

four children, and taking to the byways for the run, using the

:15:40.:15:48.

internet and paper maps to find his way. Why run back to Switzerland?

:15:48.:15:51.

Because that is where I've got my roots. It is an attraction to go

:15:51.:15:57.

back home. The landscape gardener who -- hopes to go back in one

:15:57.:16:03.

month. And coming behind now. Hopefully there will be a lot of

:16:03.:16:07.

people waiting for me. That the plan. In all, Gerard is hoping to

:16:07.:16:10.

raise �20,000 for breast cancer research and services in England,

:16:10.:16:19.

France and Switzerland. Good luck! A fantastic effort.

:16:19.:16:22.

Still to come on the programme: April's almost upon us, so it's

:16:22.:16:27.

time for some April weather. We have been truly spoilt this week

:16:28.:16:32.

with the glorious sunshine and the unusually high temperatures, but

:16:32.:16:37.

Mother Nature is about to press the reset button. More details at the

:16:37.:16:47.
:16:47.:16:50.

You could reset so many things in life... Wouldn't it it be

:16:50.:17:00.
:17:00.:17:02.

marvellous to do that? I don't think there is on! First

:17:02.:17:05.

tonight, there are fears that many football league clubs are not well

:17:05.:17:07.

enough prepared to cope with a life- threatening situation

:17:07.:17:09.

involving their players. The football world was shocked when

:17:09.:17:12.

Bolton's Fabrice Muamba suffered a heart attack on the pitch. He is

:17:12.:17:15.

recovering but as Angela discovered there are fewer safeguards in place

:17:15.:17:22.

for professionals at smaller clubs. We are afraid that due to a serious

:17:22.:17:25.

illness to a Leicester player, both clubs have agreed to abandon the

:17:25.:17:29.

match. It was an afternoon which could change one man's life for

:17:29.:17:37.

ever. Leicester City's Clive Clark had suffered a heart attack and was

:17:37.:17:41.

fighting for his life. This was the man who helped save him. We knew

:17:41.:17:45.

straight away it was a serious event. It was literally two minutes

:17:45.:17:50.

into the half-time period, Clive collapsed from a seated position.

:17:50.:17:56.

That is never a good starting point. Clive made a good -- full recovery

:17:56.:18:01.

but his football career was over. Such incidents are rare but the

:18:01.:18:04.

medical response can be the difference between life and death.

:18:05.:18:07.

Safeguards have to be in place for Premier League matches. It's a

:18:07.:18:11.

different story in the lower leagues. There are no specific

:18:11.:18:17.

recommendations within the Football League with vigour -- regards to

:18:17.:18:21.

this. I don't believe everybody is ready for this type of event and I

:18:21.:18:24.

would call upon people like the Football Association, the Football

:18:24.:18:28.

League and the Premier League to sit around the table and try to

:18:28.:18:33.

hammer out some of the issues. Leicester City, they've invested in

:18:33.:18:39.

equipment to make sure they are as prepared as possible. It is a case

:18:39.:18:43.

of belt-and-braces. We are being a little bit of a protected. You

:18:43.:18:46.

wouldn't expect these people to our problems but there is always going

:18:46.:18:49.

to be one or two that maybe slip through some of the screening

:18:49.:18:53.

processes. They are the ones we need to be ready for. The only way

:18:53.:18:56.

we can do that is through adequate training and equipment. That comes

:18:56.:19:00.

at a cost. The big question is, whether it is a price some clubs

:19:00.:19:10.

are willing to pay. Leicester, just one of our Championship teams still

:19:10.:19:14.

in with a shot of making the play- offs. The Rams are also still

:19:14.:19:17.

dreaming. They've got a trip to Bristol City. One man who's just

:19:17.:19:20.

happy to be back out on the pitch is defender Jake Buxton. He's been

:19:20.:19:23.

telling Kirsty Edwards about his trials and tribulations at Pride

:19:23.:19:33.
:19:33.:19:34.

Park. The past few years have been a

:19:34.:19:40.

rollercoaster for Jake. He got a dream move to the Rams in 2009. The

:19:40.:19:45.

next season, his injury nightmare began. Pretty much ruling him out

:19:45.:19:49.

of contention until halfway through this season. Playing week-in, week-

:19:49.:19:54.

out, bearing in mind there was playing in a conference the year

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:05.

before. That is what I missed being injured the most. The buzz. For the

:20:05.:20:08.

club to continue paying me for 14 months whilst being injured, I

:20:08.:20:15.

think that is why it drove me on. And then, after all his injury

:20:15.:20:20.

nightmares, came that dreadful injury to his fellow defender, Sean

suddenly a hero. It is certainly a game he will never forget. I'm not

here, everybody has tried to settle me quickly. The staff, the players,

and the fans as well. I am really enjoying the hit. -- enjoying being

Outside football there are some really big sporting fixtures.

Leicester Tigers play tonight, at home to Worcester Warriors. They're

evening, in Bristol. Play-off hopes for the Green and Whites hanging by

It's been a fantastic week of sunny weather. And before things get back

snaps you've emailed us showing just how strange and lovely this
