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

:00:05.:00:14.

Our top story tonight, the bars and pubs facing a law and order levy.

:00:14.:00:18.

Some bars could be charged thousands to help cover the cost of

:00:18.:00:22.

late night policing. In it is a step in the right direction and a

:00:22.:00:31.

reasonable thing for us to ask. And the giant distribution depot

:00:31.:00:36.

which is likely to change the face of online shopping. And Toyota

:00:36.:00:42.

unveils its new car at the Paris Motor Show, a model bringing 1500

:00:42.:00:47.

jobs to the region. And happy first birthday James, but

:00:47.:00:51.

the day of his birth a year ago was a shock because Jane did not even

:00:51.:01:01.
:01:01.:01:07.

Welcome to Thursday's programme. First tonight, bars and clubs will

:01:07.:01:11.

soon be charged for late-night policing. A new "levy" of up to

:01:11.:01:17.

�4,500 has been agreed by local politicians in Nottingham.

:01:17.:01:19.

It's coming in because there's been so much violence around bars that

:01:19.:01:25.

stay open late in the city centre. As a result more than 20 extra

:01:25.:01:29.

police officers have had to be deployed. But publicans say the

:01:29.:01:33.

extra charges could put some out of business. Our Social Affairs

:01:33.:01:42.

Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, can tell us more.

:01:42.:01:45.

It is all quiet now, but come here late at night, at the weekend, it's

:01:45.:01:51.

buzzing. But soon bars and clubs that don't close by midnight are

:01:51.:01:54.

going to face a policing bill. And as you can imagine, they're not

:01:54.:02:00.

happy about it. Nottingham has a thriving pub and

:02:00.:02:05.

club scene making the city centre a magnet for miles around. But it can

:02:05.:02:12.

bring problems. Almost one-third of violent crime takes place around

:02:12.:02:17.

the city centre with a sharp rise at weekends and in the early hours.

:02:17.:02:21.

So now the Police Authority has agreed that the council can

:02:21.:02:25.

introduce a late night levy. should council tax payers be paying

:02:25.:02:31.

for the additional policing costs generated by a licensed premises

:02:31.:02:36.

staying open the a midnight? levy will help pay for 24 police

:02:36.:02:40.

officers focusing on the night time the economy. But is the charge

:02:40.:02:50.
:02:50.:02:50.

their? Most people have had enough. If you're going to give out cheap

:02:50.:02:55.

drinks then someone has to pick up for that.

:02:55.:03:00.

For the busy places that is all right but the ones were not so busy

:03:00.:03:07.

could struggle. It will be more difficult for us to

:03:07.:03:11.

pay on a student budget. We pay for the policing in our taxes so that

:03:11.:03:15.

buyers should not be charged for DUP the late-night venues could be

:03:15.:03:25.
:03:25.:03:27.

charged between �200 and almost �4,500 per year from next summer.

:03:27.:03:31.

Well councillors of course reckoned this new charge is the way to do it.

:03:32.:03:38.

But publicans do not see it that way. What impact do is think this

:03:38.:03:43.

will have? It will have a detrimental effect. A lot of

:03:43.:03:47.

farmers are already closing in Nottingham. And that affects

:03:47.:03:52.

everybody. A lot of people would say, why should you not pay? The

:03:52.:03:56.

Bar's other places making the profits. Why should council

:03:56.:04:00.

taxpayers pay? Will we bring millions of pounds to the city

:04:00.:04:05.

centre and we already give the council over �400,000 in business

:04:05.:04:09.

development funds. And we heard comments St it is a drop in the

:04:09.:04:13.

ocean and the fee would be around the equivalent of one night's

:04:13.:04:21.

takings. That is not true. To make �1,000 you have to take between

:04:21.:04:26.

5007 �1,000 and a lot of bars do not even make that in a week.

:04:26.:04:31.

The new levy is still needs to be rubber-stamped by the licensing

:04:31.:04:34.

committee of the council. They will decide who is going to pay what and

:04:35.:04:39.

how that will work exactly. But the council reckons it could raise

:04:39.:04:43.

several hundred �1,000 per year here in Nottingham.

:04:43.:04:47.

Still to come tonight: What doctors here think of the biggest shake-up

:04:47.:04:56.

of the NHS in its 60 year history. And find out why a Bollywood acting

:04:56.:05:06.

dynasty have chosen at Leicester as the location for their latest movie.

:05:06.:05:09.

The hunt is underway to find 1,000 people to work at the country's

:05:09.:05:14.

biggest distribution centre. The Marks and Spencer depot has been

:05:14.:05:19.

built at Castle Donington and will open next spring. The firm has

:05:19.:05:22.

adopted a new approach in its search for staff. It's particularly

:05:22.:05:25.

keen to recruit people who've had problems getting work in the past,

:05:25.:05:35.
:05:35.:05:35.

as James Roberson explains. It may looked like just another

:05:35.:05:40.

warehouse from a distance but closer in and then inside the

:05:40.:05:46.

massive scale of the new depot begins to hit you. Over 80 ft high,

:05:46.:05:51.

it is divided into three enormous areas. In this one there are

:05:51.:05:58.

already practising of selecting items automatically. The second

:05:58.:06:02.

warehouse will eventually have my 200 Packers and the third is there

:06:02.:06:06.

for expansion. The building is designed to hold around 20 million

:06:06.:06:13.

items. This vast space will hold millions more in future. We will

:06:13.:06:18.

hold 150,000 different types of product here. At Christmas we

:06:18.:06:28.

reckon we can ship 1 million in any one day. We can keep -- can fit

:06:28.:06:33.

billions of packets of sweets in here any one time! The depot there

:06:33.:06:37.

also has its own two mile-long railway link and is close to

:06:37.:06:41.

freight hubs at East Midlands airport. But the company staffing

:06:41.:06:48.

plans are equally radical. It will include amongst the 900 staff still

:06:48.:06:51.

needed, a high percentage of people with disabilities or other barriers

:06:51.:06:57.

that have stopped them previously finding work. A we have an employer

:06:57.:07:00.

making a really public commitment about their desire to employ

:07:00.:07:04.

disabled people as part of their diverse workforce and their

:07:04.:07:08.

willingness to make some changes to make sure disabled people get the

:07:08.:07:12.

same chances and choices as everyone else. The scheme has

:07:12.:07:17.

enabled Adrian to get back into work after an 18 year gap. It is

:07:17.:07:25.

absolutely brilliant. I would not have believed it back in January.

:07:25.:07:28.

The high-tech equipment and all the systems are currently being worked

:07:28.:07:33.

on. Staffing will increase and the depot will fill with goods. Full

:07:33.:07:39.

operation is on the horizon next spring.

:07:39.:07:48.

That is extraordinary. You can fit 12 jumbo jets in there. I do not

:07:48.:07:53.

think they sell those! More coverage of that story

:07:53.:07:55.

including an online photo gallery can be found on our BBC Leicester

:07:55.:08:01.

website. And there's some more positive news

:08:01.:08:06.

on jobs tonight. The Japanese car manufacturer Toyota has unveiled a

:08:06.:08:08.

new model, one which is bringing 1,500 jobs to its Derbyshire

:08:08.:08:13.

factory. The revamped Auris was shown for the first time today at

:08:13.:08:17.

the world's biggest motor show in Paris. From the French Capital,

:08:17.:08:25.

Mike O'Sullivan reports. The razzmatazz and fanfare of the

:08:25.:08:33.

Paris Motor Show. The new Toyota Auris. Towed it

:08:33.:08:37.

unveils its revamped Auris. This is the biggest motor show in the world.

:08:37.:08:42.

Motoring journalists and rivals taking a close look. This is the

:08:42.:08:47.

new Auris that will be built in Burnaston. It is described as more

:08:47.:08:53.

sporty with an upmarket interior. And it is said to be a must succeed

:08:54.:08:58.

carp in a very competitive market. It is must succeed from a sales

:08:58.:09:03.

point of view. We have to sell significant numbers of cars in the

:09:03.:09:09.

biggest sector of the European car market. We will make at least

:09:09.:09:18.

100,000 per year at Burnaston. Toyota is creating 1500 jobs over

:09:18.:09:22.

two years at Burnaston because of the new model. Some will be hybrid

:09:22.:09:27.

cars using battery power and conventional fuel. There will be an

:09:27.:09:32.

estate version being built next year. The business minister came to

:09:32.:09:37.

Paris braising Toyota's contribution to manufacturing.

:09:37.:09:41.

have always make things in Britain but it has taken global investors

:09:41.:09:46.

like Toyota it to remind us of that. They want to be in the east and

:09:46.:09:49.

then -- in the East Midlands because of the skills that are

:09:49.:09:55.

there. They have done a huge amount to revive our manufacturing story.

:09:55.:10:00.

85% of production at Burnaston goes to Europe. So with the Continent in

:10:00.:10:04.

economic crisis, what are the prospects for the new car? Toyota

:10:04.:10:14.

or has always had a strong brand. And with this new Auris, it will be

:10:14.:10:20.

back. Toyota is hoping the launch here in Paris will lead to the car

:10:20.:10:24.

being a triumph both for the company and the workforce in

:10:24.:10:30.

Burnaston. Two members of staff at The

:10:30.:10:32.

Salvation Army in Nottingham have been suspended over allegations

:10:32.:10:37.

they ignored a rape victim's cries for help. 28-year-old Mawawe Karam

:10:37.:10:42.

from Carrington raped the teenager near Sneinton Market in March.

:10:43.:10:47.

He was jailed for ten years. A passer-by told the city's Crown

:10:47.:10:49.

Court he took the victim to the Salvation Army, but was told they

:10:49.:10:54.

only helped males. Police are searching a

:10:54.:10:58.

Nottinghamshire village for a missing 86-year-old woman.

:10:58.:11:02.

Hilda Pearce was last seen at her house in East Bridgford on Tuesday.

:11:02.:11:06.

She has dementia. She went out without her medication or her purse.

:11:06.:11:08.

The police and her family say they're growing increasingly

:11:08.:11:14.

concerned for her safety. For the third time in 18 months,

:11:14.:11:18.

Derby City Council is looking for staff to volunteer for redundancy.

:11:18.:11:21.

The authority says it will have to find �25 million in savings next

:11:21.:11:25.

year because of government cuts. Two previous moves to reduce the

:11:25.:11:28.

workforce led to a total of 760 full and part time staff offering

:11:28.:11:38.
:11:38.:11:38.

to take redundancy. Next tonight, it's the biggest

:11:38.:11:41.

shake up of the NHS since it was created more than 60 years ago and

:11:41.:11:44.

it's gathering pace in the East Midlands. The nine primary care

:11:44.:11:47.

trusts which control most of the health service budgets here are

:11:47.:11:53.

being scrapped. From April they're being replaced by twice the number

:11:53.:11:58.

of GP-led consortia. Our Health Correspondent Rob Sissons reports

:11:58.:12:00.

from Nottingham, where doctors are already increasingly involved in

:12:00.:12:10.
:12:10.:12:14.

making the big decisions. Dr Kalim is a GP in Nottingham. He

:12:14.:12:18.

has seen countless reorganisations of the NHS but this time he is

:12:18.:12:24.

getting very involved. People are worried about the Health and Social

:12:24.:12:28.

Care Bill and the changes coming in. But doctors like myself thought it

:12:28.:12:32.

was a mob poured and opportunity. It is an opportunity that takes him

:12:32.:12:37.

to the centre of decision making. There have been plenty of changes

:12:37.:12:43.

in more than 200 years of this hospital, but this is radical.

:12:43.:12:47.

The doctors are helping shape services for a third of a million

:12:47.:12:52.

patients. Control of the purse strings is in TransTec from my old

:12:52.:12:55.

Primary Care Trust to this, a clinical commissioning group where

:12:56.:13:01.

doctors have a big say. It is massively different. We have had

:13:01.:13:04.

the Primary Care Trust with fantastic managers who did a great

:13:04.:13:09.

job. But they have had difficulty engaging with the specialised

:13:10.:13:14.

medical workforce. In this brave new world the GPs already claimed

:13:14.:13:19.

to have innovated. They have cut waiting times for patients to see

:13:19.:13:23.

podiatrist says. They have set up a crisis response team to help keep

:13:23.:13:29.

elderly patients out of hospital. And for MRI scans, they can now

:13:29.:13:33.

book patients in directly without going through a consultant. The

:13:33.:13:40.

budget is not endless from streets that GPs will not run out of advice.

:13:40.:13:46.

Waiting lists could be improved. The GPs seem to be over burdened.

:13:46.:13:50.

It has worked successfully for years. Whatever the doubts there is

:13:50.:13:54.

one certainty. The clinical commissioning group in Nottingham

:13:54.:13:57.

has its work cut out. Rob's here now. The reforms have

:13:57.:14:03.

been controversial, not all doctors are on board?

:14:03.:14:06.

The British Medical Association told us to date most doctors are

:14:06.:14:11.

apathetic about these changes. They started off thinking it was not a

:14:11.:14:16.

bad idea but it has become clear that finances are getting tight and

:14:16.:14:20.

some are now in doubt about it. Some are said to be enthusiastic

:14:20.:14:28.

and some dead set against it. There not a bad idea at group field

:14:28.:14:30.

their railroaded into something that now looks like something less

:14:30.:14:33.

attractive than they were told at the beginning. They do not have the

:14:33.:14:37.

freedom to do what they won. Patients will be told they have

:14:37.:14:41.

more choice when they have less. The amount of money is being cut so

:14:41.:14:47.

the range of options for patience is not going to be there. It seems

:14:47.:14:52.

we have been talking about this for a long time. What is the timescale?

:14:52.:14:59.

When the transition phase, when it ends it should be in place by April

:14:59.:15:05.

next year. It goes to show that if you tamper with the NHS, it is at

:15:05.:15:09.

your peril. But they have been proud of what they have achieved in

:15:09.:15:14.

Nottingham. The GPS there are taking more of a bigger role in

:15:14.:15:22.

decisions. Still to come, look at you now. A

:15:22.:15:28.

bundle of fun born on a shopping trip in Belper. His mother did not

:15:28.:15:34.

even know she was pregnant, now the baby is one year old.

:15:34.:15:36.

He's considered one of Indian cinema's greatest heroes, so the

:15:36.:15:38.

presence of the Bollywood actor Dharmendra in Leicester has been

:15:38.:15:47.

causing quite a stir. He's shooting his latest film alongside his two

:15:47.:15:51.

sons and hundreds of locals who've been recruited as extras.

:15:51.:16:01.
:16:01.:16:03.

Geeta Pendse went to have an exclusive look behind-the-scenes.

:16:03.:16:09.

When it comes to Bollywood roles, Dharmendra it is high on the list.

:16:09.:16:12.

As star of the silver screen for five decades, his sons have

:16:12.:16:16.

followed in his footsteps. They have chosen the University of

:16:16.:16:21.

Leicester as a location for a movie. And their presence has excited the

:16:21.:16:29.

fans here. People around here are very cordial

:16:29.:16:35.

and warm. We are enjoying it. exciting because they do not get to

:16:35.:16:45.
:16:45.:16:48.

see us. They ask, what are you doing in Leicester?! One of the

:16:48.:16:53.

fans is a university worker who was named after the actor. Watching

:16:53.:16:56.

them grown-up and bent sing them standing right next to you is

:16:56.:17:01.

unbelievable. It is not unusual for a Bollywood movie to film in a

:17:01.:17:04.

foreign location but it seems East Midlands universities are proving

:17:04.:17:09.

popular. This is the third time a Bollywood movie has been filmed at

:17:09.:17:14.

the University of Leicester. And last year a Alastair's were spotted

:17:14.:17:18.

at the University of Nottingham. The family also have a strong

:17:18.:17:28.
:17:28.:17:32.

connection to the East Midlands. daughter in law, she lives in

:17:32.:17:37.

Rutland. This weekend 700 local people will be extras in a wedding

:17:37.:17:41.

sequence. No doubt their presence in Leicester will secured an army

:17:41.:17:51.
:17:51.:17:55.

of future fans. He thinks Rutland is a fairy land!

:17:55.:18:05.
:18:05.:18:05.

Time for the sports news now. We are starting tonight with an

:18:05.:18:08.

event at Loughborough that's the first real attempt to get to grips

:18:08.:18:10.

with eating disorders in the world of sport and especially athletics.

:18:10.:18:13.

It's a problem that's often been ignored or hidden away. But it

:18:13.:18:15.

exploded into the open when one of our leading triathletes retired

:18:15.:18:17.

just before the London Olympics and blamed her problems partly on her

:18:17.:18:19.

sport Nottingham Forest have confirmed the signing of former

:18:19.:18:28.

midfielder Jermain Jenas on a one The real shock from the public came

:18:29.:18:32.

when it athlete colleague said she had suffered real problems with

:18:32.:18:36.

food because of a careless remark from a coach when she was just 16.

:18:36.:18:40.

It is not just lack of knowledge but the subject is somewhat to

:18:40.:18:48.

build. People do not want to approach it. People do not want to

:18:48.:18:52.

talk to athletes about what is going on. Holly may be the one to

:18:52.:18:58.

speak out but she is far from alone. Female athletes are around twice as

:18:58.:19:01.

likely to develop an eating disorder compared to none athletes

:19:01.:19:06.

of a similar age. And for the males that figure is 16 times more likely

:19:06.:19:11.

than an on athlete. Perhaps hardly surprising that sport these days

:19:11.:19:16.

obsessively measures every promoter and closely guides every athlete.

:19:16.:19:19.

The conference today at Loughborough was trying to educate

:19:19.:19:25.

and guide coaches. In sport we have a lot of the same risk factors in

:19:25.:19:30.

the general population but there magnified. Athletes by definition

:19:30.:19:37.

are driven and they are perfectionists. Onstage with Holly,

:19:37.:19:43.

a bit of stardust. Dame Kelly Holmes. It is great to speak to

:19:43.:19:47.

someone who is willing to open up to others and will pass on the

:19:47.:19:53.

message and hopefully help others. Achieving what Kelly Holmes did

:19:53.:19:57.

takes this Divis attention to detail. Spotting when that tips

:19:57.:20:02.

into an unhealthy obsession is a new Challenge for everyone.

:20:02.:20:07.

On to foot fault and at Leicester City to a big money signings seem

:20:07.:20:10.

to be out of favour. The manager confirm today there are not

:20:10.:20:14.

training with the first team but insisted it was just normal squad

:20:14.:20:18.

management. We have got good competition for

:20:18.:20:24.

places. I have made the decision that other people are ahead of them

:20:24.:20:29.

at the moment. If players are not friendly in the team bar on the

:20:29.:20:34.

bench than they have to work that bit harder.

:20:34.:20:39.

Nottingham Forest have confirmed the signing of Jermaine Jenas on a

:20:39.:20:43.

one-month loan from Tottenham Hotspur. Jenas began his career as

:20:43.:20:45.

a teenager with the Reds before leaving them for Newcastle for �5

:20:45.:20:48.

million ten years ago. He has found himself on the periphery at White

:20:48.:20:52.

Hart Lane and so decided to returns to Forest.

:20:52.:20:55.

Now for Notts County it has been a very good start to the season.

:20:55.:20:58.

Results and performances they've put in have been pleasing to watch.

:20:58.:21:01.

For the manager it's all about a long- term plan that's finally

:21:01.:21:04.

coming to fruition. Angela has been to hear more about the philosophy

:21:04.:21:12.

in Keith Curle's world. The Magpies are after a flying

:21:12.:21:17.

start this season, sitting pretty near the top of the table. An

:21:17.:21:22.

unbeaten away record so plenty of cause for optimism. For the man in

:21:22.:21:25.

hot seat there is a sense of satisfaction that his plans a

:21:25.:21:30.

coming together. We tried to introduce a different philosophy

:21:30.:21:37.

about how we wanted to play and the players have bought into it. The

:21:37.:21:40.

supporters are starting to enjoy the football that is being served

:21:40.:21:45.

up. Years spent alongside Neil Warnock have taught him a thing or

:21:45.:21:51.

two. Mostly, a manager cannot do anything. I do not approach even

:21:51.:21:59.

though I am a qualified coach. I have got footballing ideas. I can

They are seeing exciting players. Just an update on the England game,

the first of the Super 8. They needed 180 to beat the West Indies.

England made a horrendous start in batting. England were beaten in the

right. Next tonight, baby James has just

:23:07.:23:12.

celebrated his first birthday. But his arrival a year ago came as a

:23:12.:23:20.

bit of a shock to his mum. That's because, not only was she forced to

:23:20.:23:23.

give birth suddenly on a bench in a busy street in Belper, but she had

:23:23.:23:28.

no idea she was even pregnant! Jo Healey reports.

but the day of his birth a year ago brought shock and grief and trauma

instead of joy. Jane had no idea she was pregnant. So how is she

clothing, one year on? I'm just getting used to the idea.

:23:49.:23:53.

Also getting used to him are his brother and sister in their

shopping and complained of stomach pains. She went over to the chemist

:24:12.:24:17.

to get some painkillers, she came out to sit on the bench and gave

:24:17.:24:22.

birth to James! It does not seem five minutes since he was born. It

:24:22.:24:29.

has gone so quickly. We would not change him for the world. At 45

:24:29.:24:32.

Jane thought you were simply going through the menopause. Being

:24:32.:24:38.

pregnant had not occurred to her, but not any more.

:24:38.:24:48.
:24:48.:24:53.

He is the last! No more surprises! But he is a lovely surprise.

:24:53.:25:03.
:25:03.:25:04.

Even more valuable for being so unexpected. It will not come as any
