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

Our top story tonight: A senior councillor is sacked for

:00:06.:00:15.

joking about the murder of two policewomen.

:00:15.:00:19.

David Stephenson made the remarks following last week's shootings in

:00:19.:00:24.

Manchester. What I did was a poor joke. Perhaps I should have been

:00:24.:00:34.
:00:34.:00:39.

more careful to whom I said it. Plus, we love Lucy.

Leicestershire's new cycling star is life in our studio. And you

could say I have reached the summit in student accommodation. Luxury

apartments, but how do they afford Good evening. Welcome to the

:01:00.:01:03.

programme. First tonight: The joke that got a Conservative councillor

:01:03.:01:07.

sacked. David Stephenson made an off-the-cuff remark about the

:01:07.:01:09.

shooting of two policewomen in Manchester last week. The

:01:09.:01:12.

councillor, a senior cabinet member from the Erewash area of Derbyshire,

:01:12.:01:15.

says it was meant as a joke. But the Conservative Party says it was

:01:15.:01:18.

offensive and unnecessary. Our Political Editor John Hess has the

:01:18.:01:28.
:01:28.:01:30.

For David Stephenson, there was little to joke about and the

:01:31.:01:35.

headlines today. The senior Tory now regrets the remarks that caused

:01:35.:01:40.

offence. Would the benefit of hindsight, if I could turn the

clock back, I would not do it. started outside these council

:01:56.:02:02.

police woman and 200 points for shooting to please women, how many.

:02:02.:02:08.

You get for shooting a lawyer? He thought it was a joker, but the

woman Polly -- complained to her husband he was a member of the

Police Federation and they complained to the Conservative

Party. I am well aware of the hurt that the police officers are

:02:22.:02:25.

feeling at the moment. They it follows the row over remarks about

:02:25.:02:30.

the police made by Andrew Mitchell, the government's Chief Whip. David

:02:30.:02:33.

Stephenson believes that his political sacking as a direct

:02:33.:02:39.

consequence. It seems to me very severe. A look at the firestorm

:02:39.:02:44.

that is taking place in London for a man who used a language that I

:02:44.:02:47.

were not using any circumstances. I do not think it makes the

:02:47.:02:53.

Conservative Party looks sensible and I do not think it is good

more fire. He is sagging is an attempt to damage the Met estate --

limitation by the Conservatives locally. What is uncertainty --

:03:25.:03:29.

uncertain is whether David Stephenson will let it rest there.

:03:29.:03:32.

A new report reveals that bed shortages were partly to blame for

:03:32.:03:35.

the crisis of cancelled NHS operations in Nottingham. Over

:03:35.:03:38.

1,500 procedures were postponed in the first three months of the year.

:03:38.:03:41.

Some days they were ten times the accepted levels in the NHS. The

:03:41.:03:43.

main reason? A shortage of beds. Tonight hospital managers have

:03:43.:03:46.

insisted the same thing won't happen again this winter. Live now

:03:46.:03:56.
:03:56.:03:59.

to our health correspondent Rob Sissons.

:03:59.:04:08.

There had been families and patients caught up in this saga,

:04:08.:04:12.

and the reason for it are many, according to today's report, but

:04:12.:04:17.

the fact that they cut 96 beds have read one hospital the year before,

:04:17.:04:22.

and there was a shortage of beds, Medical Emergency Beds, here at

:04:22.:04:27.

Queen's Medical Centre as the problems unfold it. As the images

:04:27.:04:31.

is kept coming, the hospitals struggled to cope. At the height of

:04:31.:04:35.

the problems, day after day, we featured stories about the

:04:35.:04:39.

inconvenience, disappointment and pain. You know you're going to have

:04:39.:04:44.

it done and then you just drop. Obviously you are nervous about the

:04:44.:04:50.

operation and then it all dyes are you so you're just lost. I am happy

:04:50.:04:54.

it has been done. They should have been done a lot longer before a.

:04:54.:04:57.

The external report said there were not enough beds at the Queen's

:04:57.:05:02.

Medical Centre, and the timing of the transfer of services from one

:05:02.:05:07.

site to another was wrong. One report reveals from an independent

:05:07.:05:12.

expert and authority that we got a number of things right with regard

:05:12.:05:15.

to emergency services at Queen's Medical Centre. It also highlights

:05:15.:05:19.

things we could have done differently and better. Brotherly

:05:24.:05:27.

Jilian. Her life-saving surgery was cancelled three times, but he says

he should never have had to battle so hard. I should not have to fight

:05:38.:05:42.

are too many cheats and -- chiefs and there are not enough Indians.

:05:43.:05:48.

There are not enough for people on the shop floor. The report cost

- the report cost �77,000. could go in and say to the people,

:06:00.:06:06.

right, sort it out, let we schedule things. There will be about 18

:06:06.:06:11.

worked NHS beds in this hospital over the winter, enough, bosses say,

:06:11.:06:17.

to cope. We just heard about the concern about the cost of buying

:06:17.:06:21.

this report. What have the NHS bodgers -- boss has said about

:06:21.:06:26.

that? I think they feel a little bit like, damned if you do and

:06:26.:06:31.

damned if you do not, because they wanted to shine a torch on this and

:06:31.:06:39.

have an external consultancy firm, end but it cost �77,000. I put this

:06:39.:06:44.

concern to the one that the chiefs of the hospital trust, and this is

:06:44.:06:51.

what he had to say. We promised that be would publish these reports

:06:51.:06:55.

so that everyone concerned could read what happened and what we got

:06:55.:06:58.

right and do not get right and it then gives us a very good set of

:06:59.:07:02.

tests to make sure that our services, including this coming

:07:02.:07:08.

winter and beyond, are at a good standard. A one of the reasons they

:07:08.:07:12.

wanted to bring in a consultant was to satisfy the concerns of many of

:07:12.:07:22.
:07:22.:07:23.

the patients. You can see that You can see the details they're off

:07:23.:07:27.

what they actually found out. A new system for bugging operations has

:07:27.:07:33.

been brought in at Nottingham's to hospital, and they are measuring

:07:33.:07:37.

cancellations now, not just the ones are made on the day. They are

:07:37.:07:46.

the 5th trust in England to do that. Still to come:

The students who are quite literally living the high life. And

:07:51.:07:57.

why the times are changing for this historic wallpaper company.

:07:57.:08:00.

Around 1,300 jobs were on offer in Nottingham today. All up for grabs

:08:00.:08:03.

at the city's annual jobs fair. Around 70% were full-time, 30%

:08:03.:08:05.

part-time. But some older jobseekers thought there wasn't

:08:05.:08:08.

much there for them. The organisers say they'll listen to the comments

:08:08.:08:18.
:08:18.:08:27.

when they plan future events. This They want to work. Nearly 4,500

people turned out for the third Nottingham Jobs Fair at the Capital

FM arena. 60 employers, advice teams, 1,300 vacancies, including

:08:40.:08:45.

apprenticeships. There were not any teaching or nursing jobs. I am

:08:45.:08:48.

looking for apprenticeships and I wanted to just see what was out

:08:48.:08:53.

there. Nottingham, like everywhere else, these jobs. Nearly 14,000

:08:54.:08:59.

people here are claiming the dole, that is up by nearly 361 this time

:08:59.:09:05.

last year, but it has been falling over the last three months. For we

:09:05.:09:09.

are hoping that we are living in the right direction. We cannot

:09:09.:09:16.

create these more -- apprenticeships on our own.

:09:16.:09:19.

these three friends felt the jobs they did not do enough for people

:09:19.:09:25.

who were over 50. It is more about apprenticeships than it is about

:09:25.:09:32.

the older people. We might as well be on the scrapheap. I am 54.

:09:32.:09:36.

of the vacancies are part time. Christmas temporary workers are

:09:36.:09:40.

needed. One man was angry with that. He felt that businesses should be

:09:40.:09:44.

offering more hours. It is hard wrenching to see that sort of

:09:44.:09:48.

response. The organisers say they will take on board comments made by

:09:48.:09:56.

people who come to the jobs there. -- jobs fair.

:09:56.:09:58.

An independent review's been ordered into the protection of

:09:58.:10:01.

vulnerable children in Derby after eight men were jailed for sex

:10:01.:10:04.

offences. One was filmed checking two teenage girls into a city hotel.

:10:04.:10:06.

The men were arrested in a crackdown on kerb crawlers who

:10:07.:10:08.

targeted children. The Derby Safeguarding Children Board says

:10:09.:10:17.

it's reviewing the case so that Eight stowaways have been

:10:18.:10:21.

discovered in the back of a lorry that was bound for Nottingham's

:10:21.:10:23.

Colwick Industrial Estate. The men, from Afghanistan and Iran, were

:10:23.:10:26.

found at Calais, hiding in a consignment of soap. They were

:10:26.:10:28.

detected by a sniffer dog working with British immigration officers.

:10:28.:10:31.

The men have been handed over to French police as suspected illegal

:10:31.:10:41.
:10:41.:10:45.

immigrants. Next tonight, how a new 3D scanner

:10:45.:10:48.

is helping police in Leicestershire take measurements at the scene of

:10:48.:10:51.

serious road accidents. The idea is to reduce the length of time roads

:10:51.:10:54.

have to be closed following a collision, saving time and money.

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:06.

Angelina Socci explains. The aftermath at an accident, then the

:11:06.:11:10.

painstaking job for the police are to record what happened and take

:11:10.:11:15.

detailed measurements at the scene, a task that can group -- lead to a

:11:15.:11:20.

road being closed for up to six hours. But now, a 3 D scanner is

:11:20.:11:25.

being used to take images of accident site. The unit houses a

:11:25.:11:31.

laser in this part here, and it is directed at the glass area. The

:11:31.:11:37.

unit spins around at a relatively low-speed. Once it has captured the

:11:37.:11:42.

image, it will take a series of photographs, which we will then put

:11:42.:11:48.

together to make a 3 D image of the scene. The this is the result, a

:11:48.:11:55.

360 degree map of the location. can look at it as an overview. We

:11:55.:11:59.

can walk through and see part of the scene in detail. We only have a

:11:59.:12:05.

certain amount of time where we can keep the roads closed. We only have

:12:05.:12:10.

won a chance to create -- conduct the Virchow investigation.

:12:10.:12:18.

scanner will be used to cut the length of time that a road has to

:12:18.:12:22.

be closed by 30 minutes. The government estimates that the cost

:12:22.:12:27.

to UK trade and industry every time a main roast -- road is closed can

:12:27.:12:32.

be up to �1 million per hour. It is hoped that not only will this

:12:32.:12:35.

device provide accurate measurements, but also save time

:12:35.:12:39.

and money. Luxury isn't a word you'd normally

:12:39.:12:42.

associate with student life, but in these times of higher fees that's

:12:42.:12:45.

what some undergraduates now expect. A new 21 storey tower has just

:12:45.:12:48.

opened in Leicester and every apartment has been snapped up.

:12:48.:12:50.

They're so sought-after that students at London Universities are

Students land used to be about streets of small terraced houses,

want to live in a student house with your mates, that is great, but

:14:23.:14:27.

if you want to have more privacy, that is great, but it will cost you

:14:27.:14:32.

more. Students are prepared to splash out on luxury. These types

:14:32.:14:37.

of places are let out very quickly. The quality of the housing goes.

:14:37.:14:41.

There is the old stereotypical view of poor quality housing, but that

is gone. Word has spread about the stub it will -- summit. A have

ago. After discovering genetic fingerprinting in 1984, he went on

was awarded a Distinguished Honorary Fellowship. He'll now

The weather divides our region. But where was the dividing line?

Yes, a delusion Derbyshire, not so much in knots, and even less in

Leicestershire. More details later Next tonight, the letters which

:16:31.:16:33.

and caused a family fall-out. Marianne Biddle should have

:16:33.:16:36.

received the post, which included a �100 cheque for her disabled

:16:36.:16:38.

brother, in 2003. It finally arrived at her home in South

:16:39.:16:41.

Derbyshire a few days ago, nine years late. Today, the Royal Mail

:16:42.:16:45.

said the letters have only just been found in a disused locker and

:16:45.:16:50.

a postman has been dismissed for withholding mail. Jo Healey reports.

:16:50.:16:56.

Here they are, posted in 2003, delivered just a few days ago in

:16:56.:17:04.

2012. But among them was a cheque for �100. This was a winter fuel

:17:04.:17:09.

payment for Mary and's brother, who is a double amputee. Because he was

:17:09.:17:14.

so ill, she ended all of his paperwork, then, nine years ago, a

:17:14.:17:18.

heating payment never arrived in the post. The this caused friction,

:17:18.:17:23.

not with my brother, but with his wife, because they needed the money.

:17:23.:17:27.

That was the winter fuel payment. I cannot produce it. There was a bit

:17:28.:17:32.

of a rift and it was very upsetting for me because I had don't so much

:17:32.:17:38.

for him. Then, just days ago, the payment finally arrived, nearly a

:17:38.:17:43.

decade late. I could have burst into tears. There was the cheque

:17:43.:17:47.

that caused the pain. The Royal Mail told me they recently found

written to all of the customers to apologise. And nobody has

:18:02.:18:06.

telephoned or send me a personal letter to say that they were so

:18:06.:18:09.

sorry and that this was obviously painful for me. I need something

:18:09.:18:14.

like that. I need somebody to acknowledge that this hurts. Thus

:18:24.:18:27.

appearing now hurts me. -- this I do not know if a better light

the sport. Meet Leicestershire's Lucy Garner

everyone. It should be obvious she's a cyclist. What you may have

:18:43.:18:46.

missed is quite how brilliant she is. On Friday Lucy became only the

:18:46.:18:49.

second woman ever to retain the World Junior Road Race title.

:18:49.:18:51.

There's the famous rainbow jersey to prove it. She's exploded onto

:19:01.:19:03.

18 months ago, we got her riding alongside her sister, for once.

do not really train with her because we argue about directions

:19:06.:19:16.
:19:16.:19:19.

and things. Then a year ago, the A schoolgirl sensation. I watched

The final shot there from your second road race victory. Have you

come down from Cloud Nine yet? Know, I have not. This type of

:19:46.:19:52.

course, I was not expecting to win it this year. Le take a couple of

:19:52.:19:57.

shots -- leads to take a look at a couple of shots of the finish. You

:19:57.:20:01.

can see Mark Cavendish, he has the whole team around him making sure

:20:01.:20:05.

that they get to the finish, and that is exactly what Allen or

:20:05.:20:10.

Barker did for me. How does it feel to have a team like that? It is

:20:10.:20:14.

amazing. Alan are just one a-share bid should as well so I could not

:20:14.:20:24.

have asked for a better person to have led me out. There were Hills

:20:24.:20:28.

on the course and things that you thought would break the group and

:20:28.:20:33.

leave you behind. What happened? had obviously trained for this type

:20:33.:20:38.

of course, but it was totally out of my cupboards and, really. I went

:20:38.:20:43.

around the course the day before and I did like it and I think that

:20:43.:20:49.

is when I thought that I might have a chance again. The course did and

:20:49.:20:55.

-- end up splitting but I managed to stay there. As it now this is

:20:55.:21:00.

the aftermath of the race. You really let your emotions out. This

:21:00.:21:07.

is just tears of utter joy. It was total joy. I was so nervous before

:21:07.:21:10.

it the race and it all came out. Just having the whole team around

:21:10.:21:15.

me and celebrating with the team was so emotional. Then there was

:21:15.:21:18.

the moment with the national anthem. That was quite something.

:21:19.:21:23.

Definitely. There were a lot of Great Britain supporters and the

crowd and they were cheering me and that made it more emotional. Can we

:21:29.:21:33.

just talk about the support that you have had to get to this stage?

:21:33.:21:39.

Your mother was so excited when I spoke to her on Friday and a

:21:39.:21:42.

cyclist sister supports you as well. The yes, they have been behind me

:21:42.:21:47.

the whole way. I would not have been able to get to where I am

:21:47.:21:51.

today without them following me around the country must weeks. My

:21:51.:21:55.

coach as well, he has been there next to me and helping me out

:21:55.:22:01.

baroque all of this experience. It has been great. Do you get a nice

:22:01.:22:06.

little great -- break from the bike? No, I am racing on the

:22:06.:22:10.

bellowed from tomorrow. Well, I enjoy that if you possibly can.

:22:11.:22:16.

That is fantastic. The thank you so much.

:22:16.:22:19.

Couple of other brief bits of news. Derby County's James Bailey has

:22:19.:22:22.

been sent to Coventry. The one time Rams Young Player of the Year is

:22:22.:22:24.

joining them for three months on loan.

:22:24.:22:32.

And a huge coup for Nottingham Panthers. Players in the top league

:22:32.:22:36.

in the world, the NHL, have been locked out after failing to reach a

:22:36.:22:39.

pay deal with the owners. Now one of them, Anthony Stewart, is coming

:22:39.:22:42.

to the East Midlands to play. The right winger's no bit part player

:22:42.:22:45.

at the top level. He played 77 games for Carolina Hurricanes last

:22:45.:22:48.

season. Apparently he stayed in shape this summer by training as a

:22:48.:22:51.

cage fighter. Just a quick bit of rugby news from

:22:51.:22:53.

Leicester Tigers before I go. They've confirmed today they've now

:22:53.:22:56.

signed the South African back row forward Wessel Jooste after sorting

:22:56.:23:06.
:23:06.:23:09.

out issues with his visa. That was brilliant. That was so interesting!

:23:09.:23:14.

And lazy's males match her bike, don't they? -- and Lucy's

:23:14.:23:18.

fingernails matched her bike, don't they? You would notice something

:23:18.:23:21.

like that! Now, at a time when many businesses

:23:21.:23:24.

are struggling to survive, one says it's having its most lucrative year.

:23:24.:23:27.

Anstey makes wallpapers for some of the best shops and designers.

:23:27.:23:30.

Managers say a change in style, where people are choosing paper

:23:30.:23:32.

over paint, means turnover has doubled in six years. From

Loughborough, Kylie Pentelow reports.

:23:36.:23:41.

This is exactly how it was made a century ago, and for a very special

:23:41.:23:48.

orders, Dave can still make it the same way today. So this is an

:23:48.:23:57.

original William Loris. Yes, it is poppy. It is from 1980. -- 1880.

:23:57.:24:02.

That is the historic way, but with each will costing up to �1,000,

:24:02.:24:07.

this won't be gracing the walls of every home. Said this is how it is

:24:07.:24:11.

made today, and the paper they produce is sold in some of the best

stories and to the best designers, like Ralph Lauren. But business has

:24:16.:24:20.

not always been this good. Wallpaper went through a really

:24:20.:24:24.

difficult time in the 90s when minimalism was all the vogue and

:24:24.:24:28.

everyone was painting their walls white or magnolia, but I think

:24:28.:24:36.

cents, wallpapers have come back into vogue and we have doubled our

:24:36.:24:42.

sales over the last six or seven years. We are still growing at 15

and 20 % a year and that is letting us have the chance to make better

:25:02.:25:07.

global attention. And a hit at home as well. They recently created this

:25:08.:25:12.

wallpaper with royal approval, but they cannot tell us where it is

hung. With a pedigree like this, staff at Anstey are hoping that

:25:17.:25:21.

magnolia stays firmly out of fashion and it is wallpaper that

:25:21.:25:30.

I just cannot help thinking about a toddler with a load of prions

:25:30.:25:38.

running around with �1,000 worth of wallpaper! We talked about what

:25:38.:25:42.

they put all the way through that story. Is the weather are going to

:25:42.:25:49.

be a work of art? It had been an eventful start to the week. For

:25:49.:25:55.

tonight, more work rain to come. It comes as no surprise that some of

:25:55.:26:00.

our river levels are high. One thing we need to know about is that

:26:00.:26:06.

we still have an amber warning in force for Derbyshire. Derbyshire

:26:34.:26:40.

become drier and settled for the end of the week. The rain has

:26:40.:26:45.

slowed down. It has pushed its way into parts of Nottinghamshire

:26:45.:26:50.

earlier today, but is starting to track away before it pushes its way

:26:50.:26:54.

back in and slowly pushes east as we go through the early hours of

Wednesday morning. The best of the dry conditions look to be out

:27:02.:27:08.

some mist or fog. The rain will start to clear south as we go
