A Labour MP wants more to be done to ensure those who hunt with dogs

:02:32.:02:35.

don't break the law. Chris Williamson, who represents Derby

:02:35.:02:40.

North, is also a trustee for the League Against Cruel Sports. Mr

:02:40.:02:44.

Williamson claims many hunts are still using hounds to kill foxes.

:02:44.:02:47.

majority of those who take part make sure they stay well within the

:02:50.:02:54.

law. A family firm in Nottinghamshire

that's Europe's biggest independent supplier of catalytic converters is

Catalysts, which is based in Mansfield and Huthwaite, handled

:03:09.:03:15.

orders a day. The company says it's now hoping to expand into even more

countries. A Nottingham jewellers has closed

:03:18.:03:22.

its doors for the final time today after more than 150 years of

:03:22.:03:24.

trading. Its current owners say parking charges in the area have

:03:24.:03:28.

forced them out, but as Tom Brown reports, it isn't quite the end for

:03:28.:03:30.

the business. Back in 1854, Britain had just

:03:36.:03:42.

William Taylor had just opened a jewellery shop. 158 years later, it

:03:42.:03:47.

is still going, or at least it was until today. After a downturn in

:03:47.:03:50.

high street trade, the current owners, Andrew Bates and Terry

:03:50.:03:56.

Marshall, decided to close it down. The economic situation is not

:03:56.:03:59.

brilliant. Various things, alterations to traffic flow,

:03:59.:04:04.

parking, that kind of thing, have caused problems. Customers don't

:04:04.:04:10.

like it. They have difficulty getting into town, getting to us.

:04:10.:04:13.

The city council says parking charges are now cheaper and simpler.

:04:13.:04:17.

Customers say the shop will be missed.

:04:17.:04:21.

Very sorry to see it shut, I've been coming years since I was about

:04:21.:04:26.

seven with my father and grandfather, and my mother. It is a

:04:26.:04:32.

family tradition. It is not all bad news, Andrew and Kenny now plan to

:04:32.:04:35.

run the business from antiques fairs.

:04:35.:04:38.

But soon the photos will be all that remains of a shop that opened

:04:38.:04:48.
:04:48.:04:54.

Good evening. It has been a damp day. The trend now is that things

:04:54.:04:57.

are drying out for a time, but after all that moisture through the

:04:57.:05:01.

day, as the temperatures drop, we are likely to see some mist and fog

:05:01.:05:04.

patches forming across the East Midlands. This is the rain that has

:05:04.:05:07.

been crossing over us doing the course of the day, brought some

:05:07.:05:11.

patchy outbreaks of rain on and off through the day. But for now, it is

:05:11.:05:14.

quite dry with cloudy skies. But that is where the mist and fog will

:05:14.:05:21.

start to develop. Temperatures around five Celsius. These showers

:05:21.:05:24.

just hanging around behind me here will be pushing in from the West

:05:24.:05:26.

through the course of early Christmas morning. Pushing in

:05:26.:05:29.

during the morning, some sharper ones during the morning, but less

:05:29.:05:32.

frequent in the afternoon. We might see the odd glimpse of sunshine in

:05:32.:05:40.

between the showers. Temperatures of eight Celsius tomorrow. An

:05:40.:05:43.

unsettled picture for the coming week. The best of the dry weather

:05:43.:05:49.
