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

:00:05.:00:09.

Tonight a local vicar urges parents to wake up to the threat of

:00:09.:00:19.
:00:19.:00:20.

internet bullying. His comments came as a book of

:00:20.:00:25.

condolences was opened for trawling the victim Hannah Smith. Even here

:00:25.:00:29.

the internet has an effect and it comes right into our homes and into

:00:29.:00:34.

our children's bedrooms and people said all the things to our children.

:00:34.:00:39.

The moment a man commits two of the so called Fatal Four of driving

:00:39.:00:45.

offences. He is texting as he drives. I saw the phone in his hand.

:00:45.:00:49.

Plus the furniture recycling project that is helping Mansfield's

:00:49.:00:53.

military veterans. And in a bit of a spin, the

:00:53.:01:03.
:01:03.:01:07.

launderette worker who has cleaned Good evening and welcome to

:01:07.:01:08.

Wednesday's programme. First tonight:

:01:08.:01:11.

Special prayers are being said and a condolence book has been opened

:01:11.:01:14.

in memory of a Leicestershire teenager who, according to her

:01:14.:01:19.

father, took her own life after being bullied online. 14-year-old

:01:20.:01:24.

Hannah Smith was found dead at her home in Lutterworth last Friday.

:01:24.:01:28.

Now the local vicar is warning that no community, not even market towns

:01:28.:01:38.
:01:38.:01:39.

like his, is safe. Eleanor Garnier reports.

:01:39.:01:46.

Candles in memory of a daughter, sister, friend and neighbour. All

:01:46.:01:50.

lit for fourteen-year-old Hannah Smith who took her own life last

:01:50.:01:54.

Friday. Her body was found by her 16-year-old sister and her father

:01:54.:01:59.

said that Hanna had become a victim of online bullies, getting

:01:59.:02:03.

anonymous messages telling her to take her own life. Her death has

:02:03.:02:07.

left Lutterworth in shock. Everybody will be talking about it

:02:07.:02:11.

and someone on the checkout will have a two-year rolling down her

:02:11.:02:16.

face so it has been a very big deal. The shock is a big part of that and

:02:16.:02:20.

obviously it is just really sad, it is tragic. As more flowers are laid

:02:20.:02:24.

at the family home here in Lutterworth, there is increasing

:02:24.:02:28.

concern about the scale of online bullying, with parents being warned

:02:28.:02:32.

about the signs they need to look out for. Young people might be more

:02:32.:02:36.

secretive about their online behaviour, perhaps hiding the use

:02:36.:02:43.

of their phone or perhaps becoming withdrawn. Very similar symptoms to

:02:43.:02:47.

other types of bullying so any changes in your child's behaviour,

:02:48.:02:51.

perhaps start thinking and looking at the information that is

:02:51.:02:55.

available online and in leaflets. The focus now is to support

:02:55.:03:00.

Hannah's family and also a message of caution about the powers of the

:03:00.:03:05.

Web. It teaches us and challenges us and it acts as a warning to was

:03:05.:03:08.

about the power of the internet that even in someone like

:03:08.:03:12.

Lutterworth where it is comfortable and relatively prosperous that

:03:12.:03:16.

actually the internet can have an effect. It comes right into our

:03:16.:03:21.

homes, right into our children's homes -- bedrooms and p+horrible

:03:21.:03:24.

things to our children. Friends and family have been coming to the

:03:24.:03:30.

church all day as the book of condolence fills up. The community

:03:30.:03:35.

here is trying to hold on to every memory it has of a young life taken

:03:35.:03:41.

too soon. A military charity's helping young

:03:42.:03:44.

veterans return to civvy street by setting up a furniture recycling

:03:44.:03:50.

scheme. They've filled a warehouse in Mansfield with donations that'll

:03:50.:03:55.

help the former soldiers make a new start. And the project's also

:03:55.:03:59.

planning to train them up for new careers. Our Social Affairs

:03:59.:04:07.

Correspondent Jeremy Ball reports. Maureen is clearing out the house

:04:07.:04:12.

where she was born after losing her father three months ago. Derek

:04:12.:04:16.

Palmer was a soldier who fought in the second world war and took part

:04:16.:04:20.

in the D-Day landings. Now all his belongings have been handed over to

:04:20.:04:24.

a military charity. My dad would have liked this so much. He talked

:04:24.:04:28.

a lot about his Army days and he would have thought this was really

:04:28.:04:32.

good, rather than just throwing things away, helping others, he

:04:32.:04:36.

would have liked it. They have been lovely while we have been clearing

:04:36.:04:39.

and they have been respectful and look at that things. They have just

:04:39.:04:42.

been really like its -- they have just been really nice for my dad

:04:42.:04:46.

would have liked that more than anything. They are going to bring

:04:46.:04:51.

Derry's furniture here to this huge warehouse. Look at how much they

:04:51.:04:55.

have already collected. It has come from homes and businesses and the

:04:55.:04:59.

local council as well and it is all going to be used to help

:04:59.:05:04.

Mansfield's military veterans. someone we come across military

:05:04.:05:08.

veterans through the charity we can refurbish them and when they

:05:08.:05:11.

improve they can come and get involved here in repairing

:05:11.:05:15.

furniture and delivering and suchlike. They can look good on a

:05:15.:05:19.

CV or for a potential employee in the future but hopefully as it

:05:19.:05:25.

grows it will provide employment as well. Ricky has found a full time

:05:25.:05:29.

driving job after this charity helped him to turn things around.

:05:29.:05:33.

He had been so traumatised by his experience in Afghanistan that he

:05:33.:05:37.

made four separate suicide attempts and he eventually admitted himself

:05:37.:05:41.

to a psychiatric hospital. I just couldn't cope with it any more.

:05:41.:05:47.

Dreams, nightmares, sleeplessness, flashbacks. You fall down a well

:05:47.:05:51.

and you are at the lowest point in the well and you see there is no

:05:51.:05:55.

way to climb out. Gradually through time and help I have started to

:05:55.:05:59.

climb and I am getting higher and higher every day. Every day is a

:05:59.:06:03.

big jump for me. This charity has already helped dozens of homeless

:06:03.:06:07.

veterans get back on their feet and to allow civilians in need are

:06:07.:06:14.

being offered help as well. What a brilliant scheme.

:06:14.:06:17.

Still to come: Is playing outside childs play? Apparently not. We've

:06:17.:06:20.

been to an event that teaches youngsters about the joys of the

:06:20.:06:30.
:06:30.:06:31.

great outdoors. A man's in hospital with serious

:06:31.:06:36.

injuries after a shooting in Nottingham. Police cordoned off the

:06:36.:06:39.

scene on Woodborough Road in St Anns as they investigated the

:06:39.:06:43.

incident which happened around 10:00pm last night. The van in

:06:43.:06:46.

which the injured man is thought to have travelled is being

:06:46.:06:50.

forensically examined. The victim's in a stable condition at the

:06:50.:06:55.

Queen's Medical Centre. Labour has selected Nick Palmer to

:06:55.:06:59.

try to win back the Nottinghamshire constituency he lost in one of the

:06:59.:07:05.

closest results of the last general election. The former MP had held

:07:05.:07:08.

the suburban seat of Broxtowe for 13 years. It's among the most

:07:08.:07:12.

politically marginal constituencies in the country. His decision to

:07:12.:07:17.

stand again means a rematch against the Conservatives' Anna Soubry.

:07:17.:07:20.

She's now a health minister and one of the best known political names

:07:20.:07:24.

in the East Midlands. At the last election Nick Palmer lost by only

:07:24.:07:28.

389 votes. Campaigners fighting to save

:07:28.:07:30.

children's heart surgery at Leicester's Glenfield Hospital were

:07:30.:07:33.

due to meet health bosses in London today, who are leading another

:07:33.:07:39.

review of the service. A previous decision to stop children's heart

:07:39.:07:44.

surgery in Leicester was overturned. The aim is to provide a better

:07:44.:07:49.

service with fewer, larger centres across the country. Campaigners

:07:49.:07:52.

were meeting officials from NHS England to put forward the case for

:07:52.:07:58.

keeping surgery in the city. Next tonight:

:07:58.:08:02.

It's been a chastening day for dozens of drivers in Leicestershire.

:08:02.:08:05.

This morning police carried out a blitz on those committing one or

:08:05.:08:13.

more of the Fatal Four offences. If you're unfamiliar with the

:08:13.:08:15.

phrase, it's actually the term used by the emergency services to

:08:15.:08:18.

summarise the four most likely causes of fatal road traffic

:08:18.:08:26.

collisions. And they are drink driving, speeding, driving while on

:08:26.:08:35.

a mobile phone and driving without a seatbelt. Jonathan Cecil reports.

:08:35.:08:39.

This driver is committing two offences. He is not wearing a

:08:39.:08:44.

seatbelt and he is using a mobile phone. He may get three points and

:08:44.:08:50.

a �60 fine for losing his own -- using his own and another �60 for

:08:50.:08:55.

not wearing his seatbelt but he may not that they either. Instead of

:08:55.:09:00.

being prosecuted here we are issuing a fixed penalty ticket and

:09:00.:09:05.

he may be eligible for an awareness course to educate him not to do it

:09:05.:09:09.

again. Over 300 people are being killed or seriously injured on

:09:09.:09:16.

these roads every year because of Fatal Four. This morning's Clinic

:09:16.:09:20.

saw 24 vehicles stopped, 19 for having a seat belt and three using

:09:20.:09:25.

a mobile phone and three vehicles were seized for having no insurance.

:09:25.:09:29.

There is nothing worse for a legitimate driver to be struck by a

:09:29.:09:32.

driver driving a car with no insurance and we are doing our

:09:32.:09:36.

level best to take these drivers off the road and, as you have seen

:09:36.:09:40.

this morning, we took the car into the car-park and within half an

:09:40.:09:44.

hour back of was recovered to a vehicle recovery so that is one of

:09:44.:09:48.

the road. Leicestershire police will continue to operate these

:09:48.:09:52.

teams throughout the country until they see a dramatic improvement of

:09:52.:09:55.

its motorists. The Home Office has rejected

:09:55.:09:58.

recommendations for greater scrutiny of the new Police and

:09:58.:10:00.

Crime Commissioners, following the controversial suspension of an East

:10:00.:10:05.

Midlands chief constable. Now a senior Nottinghamshire politician

:10:05.:10:08.

says the Home Office's decision calls into question the role of the

:10:08.:10:12.

panel set up by the government, as a check on the power of the

:10:12.:10:22.
:10:22.:10:24.

Commissioners. This report from our Political Editor John Hess.

:10:24.:10:28.

This hall will soon be the new headquarters for Nottinghamshire's

:10:28.:10:32.

police commissioner but it is not just about bricks and mortar. My

:10:32.:10:35.

mum's into power of the police commissioners are making a real

:10:35.:10:39.

impact according to the Home Office. Lincolnshire's commissioner

:10:39.:10:42.

certainly made an impact. He suspended his chief Constable

:10:42.:10:46.

within weeks of taking office over a suspected conflict of interest.

:10:46.:10:50.

The jeep was later reinstated but the court costs involved prompted

:10:50.:10:55.

MPs to investigate. A judge has described the decision that you

:10:55.:11:00.

took as perverse and irrational. accept entirely the High Court

:11:00.:11:06.

judge's criticism. We think that the best way in which you can

:11:06.:11:09.

scrutinise it is for the police and crime panels to be doing their job

:11:09.:11:13.

as effectively as possible. Home Affairs Committee recommended

:11:13.:11:16.

greater scrutiny of the commissioners, their budget and

:11:16.:11:20.

their financial interest. Today the policy at -- today the politician

:11:20.:11:24.

in charge of scrutinising Nottinghamshire's commissioner

:11:24.:11:28.

learn the government had rejected the calls for greater

:11:28.:11:31.

accountability. I think is a great mistake. This is a cross-party

:11:31.:11:35.

committee back came up with sensible recommendations and

:11:35.:11:39.

concerns. They should have paid notice, not just throw it away,

:11:39.:11:42.

they should have paid notice to what was put before them and come

:11:42.:11:45.

back with their comments instead of rubbishing it. The Government says

:11:45.:11:48.

the final quarter of a cow will be in the ballot box when

:11:48.:11:52.

commissioners what the voters to give them a second term in office.

:11:52.:11:55.

Our Political Editor John Hess joins us in the studio.The Police

:11:55.:12:02.

Commissioners must be rather relieved tonight. Certainly Alan

:12:02.:12:07.

Hardwick has been in a get to know you session with the local public

:12:07.:12:11.

today. That would in Stamford and despite the grille he had at the

:12:11.:12:16.

hands of Keith Vaz, he is actually quite easy about greater scrutiny

:12:16.:12:20.

and says he gets on with his chief constable and he welcomes the call

:12:20.:12:23.

for a greater declaration of financial interests. The committee

:12:23.:12:28.

had wanted a central register of financial interests but the

:12:28.:12:34.

government says it is not its job. It is up to each commissioner. Home

:12:34.:12:39.

Office ministers have been fairly dismissive of the calls for at

:12:39.:12:43.

greater accountability from Keith Vaz's Committee. The Government is

:12:43.:12:48.

saying that the existing legislation is robust enough.

:12:48.:12:52.

that the end of the matter for Keith Vaz? Keith Vaz does not give

:12:52.:12:56.

up easily. I suspect he and his committee suspect there is an issue

:12:56.:12:59.

here and you can guarantee there will be a further report from his

:12:59.:13:03.

committee by the time they celebrate their first anniversary.

:13:03.:13:09.

Thank you very much. In other News tonight:

:13:09.:13:11.

Mallory Park race track near Hinckley in Leicestershire has

:13:11.:13:14.

agreed to change its racing hours. It follows complaints from local

:13:14.:13:19.

residents over increased noise and disturbance from the circuit. The

:13:19.:13:21.

track's managers met with the borough council and residents, and

:13:21.:13:31.

will now submit a revised calendar by the end of the month.

:13:31.:13:36.

Planning permission is likely to be granted to night for a new King

:13:36.:13:44.

Richard III visitors' centre in Leicester. The multi million pound

:13:44.:13:47.

exhibition is expected to attract about 100,000 people a year. Helen

:13:47.:13:55.

Astle reports. But if plans are approved the

:13:55.:14:00.

visitors' centre will be fit for a king. It will be fitted out with

:14:00.:14:03.

interactive displays to tell how we found Richard III in the last year

:14:03.:14:07.

or so. An interesting thing about it is if you look at the window you

:14:07.:14:13.

can see where King Richard III's body was found in the monastery

:14:13.:14:17.

side. The former school in the City is going to be transformed so that

:14:17.:14:22.

visitors can learn about the life, death and discovery of King Richard

:14:22.:14:25.

III. What is really exciting is what it will bring for the people

:14:25.:14:29.

of the city as well as the people who visit and we will create a

:14:29.:14:31.

world-class visitors' centre that people from all over the place will

:14:31.:14:36.

be able to enjoy. It is in Leicester, and that to me but,

:14:36.:14:40.

because I grew up in Leicester, is the most exciting thing. On the

:14:41.:14:45.

outside this is what it could look like, with plans for a new

:14:45.:14:49.

courtyard garden, Cafe, entrance hall and viewing balcony. If

:14:49.:14:52.

planning permission is granted the work is set to start in earnest at

:14:52.:14:58.

the end of the month. It will cost �4 million addition be finished by

:14:58.:15:02.

next spring to coincide with the retirement of Richard III's remains

:15:02.:15:10.

at Leicester Cathedral. Something to look forward to.

:15:10.:15:13.

Playing outside during the long summer holidays used to be

:15:13.:15:16.

something that all children did, but not any more. So a group of

:15:16.:15:19.

youngsters from Nottingham were part of a special scheme today to

:15:19.:15:22.

re-introduce kids to the delights of the great outdoors. Youngsters

:15:22.:15:25.

in Bulwell were involved in the 26th national Playday event,

:15:25.:15:27.

sampling all sorts of activities like baseball, face-painting and

:15:27.:15:37.
:15:37.:15:44.

zip-wires. Paul Bradshaw reports. Fun in the sun. These children are

:15:44.:15:50.

making new friends at this park. It is all part of a national play day

:15:50.:15:54.

campaign that is encouraging children to literally get out more.

:15:54.:15:58.

It highlights the importance of play in their lives. This is about

:15:58.:16:01.

saying that you need children -- places for children to play and

:16:01.:16:04.

adults must give them more opportunities to play because that

:16:05.:16:08.

is what children do. They play and they learn and they develop and it

:16:08.:16:13.

is how they grow physically and in every way. A survey released today

:16:13.:16:17.

found that more than 50% of adults said they played at every day when

:16:17.:16:23.

they were growing out. -- growing up, compared to less than a quarter

:16:23.:16:29.

of children today. 40% of today's children say they want to play out

:16:29.:16:32.

more. There are lots of children and you start to get to know them

:16:32.:16:37.

and you start to play with them every day after school. It brings

:16:37.:16:42.

all the community together and it is really nice for the kids to play

:16:42.:16:46.

outside. If you can get an open space to play then you get more fun

:16:46.:16:50.

out of it. It is nice to have this sort of thing so you can supervise

:16:50.:16:54.

and they can still explore. There are lots of activities like face

:16:54.:16:58.

painting and everyone is really friendly. Parents can come and

:16:58.:17:01.

socialise. Quite a lot of parents and brought picnics and it is great

:17:01.:17:05.

to see all the parents and children in the community having a great

:17:05.:17:08.

time. There will be plenty more opportunities to have a good time

:17:08.:17:11.

with more events taking place across the East Midlands throughout

:17:11.:17:20.

the summer. I used to stay out until I got

:17:20.:17:22.

hungry! Still to come, the laundrette

:17:22.:17:26.

worker who's in a bit of a lather. Sue's cleaned up on the

:17:26.:17:36.

Euromillions, now her head's in a spin as she plans how to spend it.

:17:36.:17:39.

Before that it is Natalie with that the sport:

:17:39.:17:41.

First football because there were wins for Leicester, Forest and

:17:41.:17:49.

Derby last night in the first round of the League Cup. Three goals for

:17:49.:17:53.

Forest. Derby in the hat for second round for the first time in five

:17:53.:17:56.

years and another good away win for Leicester.

:17:56.:18:02.

The manager was full of praise for the 1140 City fans who travelled to

:18:02.:18:08.

Wycombe. They did not have to wait long to see a goal. Andy Keogh

:18:08.:18:14.

tripped and David Nugent scored the penalty. Wycombe were a nuisance at

:18:14.:18:23.

times, showing flashes of real quality. It was one-one. With this

:18:23.:18:28.

game fetched two the extra time there was a last-gasp winner that

:18:28.:18:34.

put the foxes in the second round. At the City Ground 10,000 saw

:18:34.:18:39.

Nottingham Forest get up and running in style. Their precise

:18:39.:18:46.

Polish playmaker picked out the man of the match to make it 2-0. Matt

:18:47.:18:50.

Derbyshire was out of form and out of the team last season but his

:18:50.:18:54.

goals pre-season and his looping third last night shows he is

:18:54.:18:57.

growing in confidence and despite conceding a soft goal, Forest were

:18:57.:19:03.

efficient and too good for our people. Derby's first-round victory

:19:03.:19:07.

was at Oldham and it was the quality of the goal that pleased

:19:07.:19:13.

the manager the most. It was worked well right from Richard Kiel in the

:19:13.:19:21.

back. There were seven passes down the field. The thing that made the

:19:21.:19:25.

fans smile the most was this ironic cheeky celebration towards the

:19:25.:19:32.

empty stand. Mansfield were our only team to be knocked out of the

:19:32.:19:36.

Capital One Cup last night at the Tranmere but as the old cliche goes,

:19:36.:19:40.

it gives them a chance to concentrate on the leader, after

:19:40.:19:45.

all this is their first first season back in six long years.

:19:46.:19:48.

And Notts County play tonight in the League Cup 1st round. They're

:19:49.:19:53.

at home to Fleetwood Town but will without Gary Liddle.

:19:53.:19:57.

They have completed a signing of the Celtic midfielder. He was

:19:57.:20:05.

signed in time to be eligible to play this evening.

:20:05.:20:08.

Onto cricket and Notts say they're hoping for a record Twenty20 crowd

:20:08.:20:10.

ahead of their quarter final match against Essex tomorrow. 13 thousand

:20:10.:20:13.

people are expected at Trent Bridge for the evening game. Today the

:20:13.:20:16.

players trained there, including James Taylor who's back from

:20:16.:20:19.

England duty. Notts have been knocked out in the last eight of

:20:19.:20:22.

the T20 for the past two seasons. This year they want to go one

:20:22.:20:28.

better. We obviously played some good

:20:28.:20:32.

cricket and we are a good team and we believe that. There is a lot of

:20:32.:20:35.

confidence going through the group at the moment in all forms of

:20:35.:20:39.

cricket. If we turn up and play I don't think Essex will come near us.

:20:39.:20:43.

The crowds this year have been as good as I can remember since I have

:20:43.:20:46.

been in the club in the last five years and we have been spoiled and

:20:46.:20:49.

the last few years because the Test matches have had excellent weather

:20:49.:20:52.

of fantastic crowds so hopefully we will see that again.

:20:52.:20:55.

Well, with Notts' push for silverware and England and

:20:55.:20:58.

Australia playing in the Ashes, there's been a lot of attention on

:20:58.:21:00.

top level cricket this summer. But for one team in Nottinghamshire,

:21:00.:21:03.

just having the opportunity to play the game is an achievement in

:21:03.:21:06.

itself. The county's blind cricket team is going from strength to

:21:06.:21:15.

strength, as Tom Brown reports. Rarely does a sport get so little

:21:15.:21:19.

coverage but mean so much to its players. This is blind cricket.

:21:19.:21:27.

Here in Nottinghamshire it is a sport on the up. Our team is about

:21:27.:21:29.

everyone having an equal opportunity and creating

:21:29.:21:33.

independent than getting people to have a new social structure and

:21:34.:21:37.

friends but, as well we have a lot of players who want to win and they

:21:37.:21:40.

want to be competitive and play at the next level. The rules of the

:21:41.:21:44.

game a very similar to its fully sighted counterpart but the ball is

:21:44.:21:49.

the size of a small football and contains ball-bearings to help the

:21:49.:21:54.

minimum of four players per team who are totally blind. I lost my

:21:54.:21:57.

fight two years ago and being involved in cricket and having

:21:57.:22:01.

support from my team mates really did help me through what was and

:22:01.:22:04.

still is at times a very difficult period. What is the sport like to

:22:04.:22:09.

play? It is tremendous. It is great to be back into sport. It is

:22:09.:22:13.

competitive. When you lose your site those sort of things go out of

:22:13.:22:20.

the window. This team was set up in 2009. They play in blind cricket's

:22:20.:22:24.

national development lake, one below the country's top division.

:22:24.:22:26.

Am I right in thinking you have even beaten some fully sighted

:22:27.:22:31.

teams? We have indeed! Some people think it will be easy but once they

:22:31.:22:37.

give it a go they realise it is not easy. The cricket club really --

:22:37.:22:42.

the cricket club recently did the Three Peaks Challenge to raise

:22:42.:22:46.

money and they have lofty ambitions and a desire to be judged on not

:22:46.:22:50.

they -- not what they can see but what they can do. The National

:22:50.:22:55.

League awaits? I does. I think they will get a surprise because we are

:22:55.:23:01.

new and people really do not know how good we are. Yet.Yet, exactly

:23:01.:23:04.

And because they are going well at the top of their league, the

:23:04.:23:08.

national league should not be too far away.

:23:08.:23:11.

Well done dies. That is fantastic.

:23:11.:23:14.

So impressive. Now, you know when someone has a

:23:14.:23:18.

big win we often say that they've cleaned up? Well, here's the story

:23:18.:23:21.

of someone who really has! Yes, a launderette worker from

:23:21.:23:23.

Nottinghamshire is celebrating after becoming one of the latest

:23:23.:23:31.

EuroMillions millionaires. James Roberson has more.

:23:31.:23:36.

It is a working life in the launderette and dry-cleaner in

:23:36.:23:42.

Balderton in Inuit that she had had for 15 years. Now pursue call it's

:23:42.:23:50.

life outside work has changed for ever. -- Sioux Cawley's life. Now

:23:50.:23:53.

she can enjoy something of a champagne lifestyle. She is

:23:53.:24:02.

toasting something where she has won a million pounds. I was

:24:02.:24:07.

checking it and checking it and then I got my husband to check and

:24:07.:24:11.

then he asked what it meant because he does not do the lottery it is me

:24:11.:24:17.

that does it. I told him we had won �1 million. She says it will give

:24:17.:24:21.

her, her husband and her family security. We will be all right for

:24:21.:24:26.

retirement now. That has covered that, hasn't it? We do not have to

:24:26.:24:30.

worry about that. My son and my grandson will be all right. As for

:24:30.:24:34.

her win getting her life in has been, absolutely not. She may have

:24:34.:24:37.

taken the lottery to the cleaners but she fully intends to keep

:24:37.:24:47.
:24:47.:24:48.

working at the launderette. What a lucky Lady X might well done.

:24:48.:24:51.

Well, it's that time of year again when thousands of people flock to a

:24:51.:24:54.

picturesque Derbyshire village for the Bakewell show. The annual two-

:24:54.:24:57.

day event is still going strong after 183 years. Despite the rain,

:24:57.:24:59.

the attractions went ahead, including a horseback display,

:24:59.:25:07.

animal contests, cooking demonstrations and classic cars.

:25:08.:25:11.

Numbers are really dying out now but it is still very important to

:25:11.:25:15.

get out there and get known. At the moment, particularly with of the

:25:15.:25:19.

milk price, it is important to get the public on your side to hope

:25:19.:25:23.

everyone supports us during that time. A really nice show. It is

:25:23.:25:27.

excellent with the stalls and the agricultural content and it is all

:25:27.:25:31.

really interesting for the public. We have been two other shows as

:25:31.:25:35.

well but of course they have been cancelled. It is OK, we have not

:25:35.:25:41.

been here that long but it is quite a big show. I remember when we were

:25:41.:25:45.

there and it poured with rain. Yes, it has been better this year.

:25:45.:25:47.

Yes, it has been better this year. We had you to fact.

:25:47.:25:51.

Thank you very much. The yes, it is quieter now. We do

:25:51.:25:54.

not have the he told the thunderstorms but we have pleasant,

:25:54.:25:59.

warm sunshine. It is down to flabby high pressure which is keeping the

:25:59.:26:02.

weather fronts away from a fat the moment but this little feller is

:26:02.:26:07.

lined up for as later in the week. For the time being it is fairly

:26:07.:26:10.

quiet. There will be some shout was popping up through the day tomorrow

:26:11.:26:14.

but most of us will have the warm sunshine again and it will be

:26:14.:26:18.

warmer tomorrow with the temperatures creeping into the

:26:19.:26:23.

twenties. We have seen a few heavy showers across the south-east. They

:26:23.:26:27.

have not really affected us but they did throw us a bit more cloud

:26:27.:26:31.

in the afternoon. The cloud is already starting to fade away so it

:26:31.:26:35.

is a dry night Again and the cloud will continue to melt away during

:26:35.:26:40.

the night. It is going to be quite chilly for the time of year. These

:26:40.:26:44.

are the temperatures in the towns and city centres but in a more

:26:44.:26:49.

rural spot by the morning we could be as low a six degrees. It will be

:26:49.:26:52.

an epi starred first thing tomorrow morning but we will be compensated

:26:52.:26:56.

with the sunshine. A lot of it around in the morning. The cloud

:26:56.:26:59.

will build into the afternoon and there will be quite a few showers

:26:59.:27:05.

popping up but they will be light and isolated with decent amounts of

:27:05.:27:08.

sunshine in between that. It will feel much warm up with the

:27:08.:27:13.

temperature reaching May the 23 degrees. It will go downhill

:27:13.:27:23.
:27:23.:27:23.

tomorrow evening as the weather fronts moved in. We will have some

:27:23.:27:27.

rain but it will fizzle out as it reaches us and it will just be

:27:27.:27:30.

spits at the box by the morning. The rain should clear away on

:27:30.:27:34.

Friday and it will be dry and bright on Saturday but more rain on

:27:34.:27:38.

Sunday. It sounds like a flappy high to me!

:27:38.:27:42.
