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

:00:04.:00:12.

Tonight, thousands attend open air prayers for a family killed in a

:00:12.:00:16.

house fire. The coffins were brought to a local park as grieving husband

:00:16.:00:23.

and father, Doctor Muhammad Taufiq Al Sattar, called for peace and

:00:23.:00:30.

unity. All humanity, religions, denominations, nobody wants any or

:00:30.:00:36.

mishaps. Hyde the laboratory mice prompting talk of an Alzheimer's

:00:36.:00:42.

breakthrough. Plus it is claimed there will be thousands of more jobs

:00:42.:00:45.

in the pipeline with a new training centre here in the East Midlands.

:00:45.:00:51.

And the tonnes of wood and rubble cleared by volunteers from the dyke

:00:51.:00:53.

that floods their town. Good evening and welcome to the

:00:53.:01:09.

programme. Thousands of people gathered in Leicester today for the

:01:09.:01:13.

funeral prayers for a family of four killed in a house fire last month.

:01:13.:01:17.

The ceremony at Spinney Hill Park was held to remember Shehnila Taufiq

:01:17.:01:21.

and her three teenage children. Our reporter Eleanor Garnier is there

:01:21.:01:24.

now. Good evening. Just how many people were there? Police estimate

:01:24.:01:32.

they were around 7000 people here, who started arriving around 3:30pm,

:01:32.:01:39.

and by the time prayers started just after 4pm, the crowds were still

:01:39.:01:45.

gathering. Clearly, the cold and windy weather did not put people off

:01:45.:01:51.

coming to pay their respects. It is grief that brought thousands of

:01:51.:01:55.

people together in Leicester today. Mourning the loss of a mother and

:01:55.:02:00.

her three teenage children, their bodies brought to the park by police

:02:00.:02:08.

escort. Row upon row, friends, neighbours, strangers, coming for

:02:08.:02:12.

funeral prayers, and to support this man Doctor Muhammad Taufiq Al

:02:12.:02:18.

Sattar, now a widower and childless, but expressing thanks to

:02:18.:02:23.

people all around the world. From all different the nominations,

:02:23.:02:28.

getting e—mails, cards, telephone calls, that will give me peace and

:02:28.:02:36.

strength in my heart so that I can see this in Leicester and Dublin and

:02:36.:02:41.

throughout the world. —— different denominations. I am not angry, guess

:02:41.:02:49.

macro, my heart is broken. Is silent in reflective prayer, remembering

:02:49.:02:55.

Shehnila Taufiq, her daughter Zainab, and her two sons back row

:02:55.:03:01.

one and Bilal. This has brought everyone together. —— her two sons

:03:01.:03:16.

Bilal and Jamal. This has brought everyone together. Fire engulfed

:03:16.:03:21.

their home. And one more journey before their final resting place by

:03:22.:03:26.

ferry to Ireland, where the doctor worked as a neurosurgeon. On

:03:27.:03:31.

Saturday, in Dublin, their bodies will be laid to rest.

:03:31.:03:40.

Today was about paying respect to those who died and allowing a

:03:40.:03:43.

community to come together to mourn, but seven people have now

:03:43.:03:48.

been charged with the murder of Shehnila Taufiq and her three

:03:48.:03:52.

teenage children, clearly a court case continuing and one man arrested

:03:52.:03:56.

yesterday who remains in police custody. Thank you.

:03:56.:04:06.

Next tonight, landmark research carried out in the East Midlands is

:04:06.:04:09.

being hailed as a breakthrough in the eventual treatment of

:04:09.:04:11.

Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases. A team based in Leicester

:04:11.:04:16.

has shown they can halt brain cell death in mice. However, the

:04:16.:04:20.

Alzheimer's Society has given the news a cautious welcome. They say

:04:20.:04:24.

scientists are still a long way from finding a successful treatment. Our

:04:24.:04:26.

health correspondent Rob Sissons can tell us more.

:04:26.:04:32.

The work they have been doing in this laboratory in Leicester has got

:04:32.:04:36.

people excited around the world. They have had interviews with

:04:36.:04:40.

Canada, America and New Zealand. It is work on the brains of mice

:04:40.:04:45.

getting everyone so excited. The papers were full of it, scientists

:04:45.:04:49.

saying it could be a historic turning point in the development of

:04:49.:04:56.

medicines to treat degenerative new role —— degenerative conditions like

:04:56.:05:06.

Alzheimer's. We were able to do it genetically, but having a drug that

:05:06.:05:10.

can target the pathway is a huge step forward, leading ways for drug

:05:10.:05:16.

companies to develop these further. Both these mice have a rub it

:05:16.:05:22.

neurological disorder. But this one was treated with the compound,

:05:22.:05:27.

showing few symptoms, the other is not treated and moves with poor

:05:27.:05:31.

coordination. This is now opens the way for drug companies to develop

:05:31.:05:37.

treatments for people. It is hugely impressive in the whole Alzheimer's

:05:37.:05:41.

sphere anyway, but we hope we can work with them and colleagues based

:05:41.:05:49.

in Nottingham, chemists there to take this forward. Will it be a game

:05:49.:05:55.

changer? Heather hopes so. She is an ambassador for the Alzheimer's

:05:55.:05:59.

Society in Derby and has early signs of dementia. Her attitude, until

:05:59.:06:04.

there is a cure, make the most of every day. The white there and enjoy

:06:04.:06:11.

life as best you can. In the meantime, —— go out there and enjoy

:06:11.:06:17.

your life. In the meantime, make the best of it. This man died last month

:06:17.:06:23.

after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's in his '40s. His wife

:06:24.:06:31.

says this gives hope to people. We always hope for a cure, but

:06:31.:06:35.

unfortunately, there was not, but this is hopeful that other people so

:06:35.:06:39.

they do not have to go through what we went through. In Leicester, it

:06:39.:06:45.

has taken five years to get this far and two and a half million pounds.

:06:45.:06:51.

This story has been everywhere, huge reaction understandably? I guess it

:06:51.:06:58.

is because of numbers. According to the NHS, the number of people with

:06:58.:07:03.

Alzheimer's in the UK is well over 600,000. As we live longer, of

:07:03.:07:10.

course, more will get it. How far off is the treatment going to be

:07:10.:07:15.

available? There are works going on on other treatments, but in that

:07:16.:07:21.

laboratory in Leicester, they are protecting five maybe ten years

:07:21.:07:27.

before treatment humans. Alzheimer's Society, perhaps understandably,

:07:27.:07:32.

being cautious, what have they said? I believe they are managing

:07:32.:07:37.

people's expectations, because this will take years, and it may not

:07:37.:07:43.

translate to an effective drug. We know the compound given to those

:07:43.:07:49.

mice had a nasty side—effect with their pancreas. In humans, that

:07:49.:07:53.

could mean the treatment does not work. Still a long way to go. But

:07:53.:07:57.

keeping fingers crossed. IQ very much, —— thank you very much, Rob.

:07:57.:08:08.

Coming up, traders who sell so—called legal highs are told to

:08:08.:08:12.

examine their consciences. Plus we find out about the new IVF treatment

:08:12.:08:16.

that increases pregnancy rates by 20%.

:08:16.:08:22.

A court has heard extracts from a teenager's diary in which he

:08:22.:08:27.

describes how he'd carry out a massacre at his school. The Old

:08:27.:08:32.

Bailey was told the teenager from Loughborough, who can't be

:08:32.:08:34.

identified, intended to lock the exits, throw explosives into a

:08:34.:08:37.

classroom and "finish off" any survivors. Earlier the court had

:08:37.:08:42.

been shown weaponry, including pipe bombs, found in the boy's bedroom.

:08:42.:08:49.

Investigators have been trying to get inside a burned—out derelict

:08:50.:08:52.

building in Derby where a man's body was found. The discovery was made on

:08:53.:08:58.

Tuesday night after a large fire at the former Friargate Pine Company

:08:58.:09:02.

building. The cause of his death and the cause of the fire are not known

:09:02.:09:06.

at the moment. Police think they know the identity of the man, but

:09:06.:09:09.

haven't released any further details. Two men have been arrested

:09:09.:09:14.

in connection with the fire. More than £11 million is to be spent

:09:15.:09:19.

improving Nottingham's bus services. Five cities across the UK will

:09:19.:09:22.

benefit from the government's new Better Bus Funding. The idea is to

:09:22.:09:25.

drive up performance and passenger numbers. Nottingham City Council has

:09:25.:09:30.

received the biggest pay out and will be able to choose where the

:09:30.:09:39.

money goes. You are watching East Midlands

:09:39.:09:43.

Today, here on the BBC. Shopkeepers are being urged to stop

:09:43.:09:45.

selling "legal highs", substances that have the same effects as hard

:09:45.:09:50.

drugs. The call has come from a Nottinghamshire charity that helps

:09:50.:09:54.

young people who've taken them. Some have seen friends die. Our Social

:09:54.:09:57.

Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, reports.

:09:57.:10:02.

Getting high doesn't have to mean breaking the law. But that doesn't

:10:02.:10:09.

make it safe. These young men in Sutton in Ashfield have all

:10:09.:10:11.

experienced problems with legal highs. It can be quite frightening.

:10:12.:10:18.

I have seen little green men, I tried to pick them up, tried walking

:10:18.:10:27.

through a door, but it was a wall. I was instantly tripping, could not

:10:27.:10:31.

thing straight, or control my mind or body. It is like your brain turns

:10:31.:10:39.

off. John was only 11 when he started taking legal highs. Three of

:10:39.:10:42.

his friends have died from overdoses. They overdosed on it, not

:10:42.:10:48.

knowing what was in it, did not know how to deal with over diocese ——

:10:48.:10:55.

overdoses. This is what legal highs look like. They're chemical

:10:55.:10:58.

compounds that mimic the effect of hard drugs. But they can be sold as

:10:58.:11:03.

incense or bath salts, as long as they're labelled not for human

:11:03.:11:05.

consumption. And they are easy to get hauled off.

:11:05.:11:10.

Shops like this seldom over—the—counter. And it is

:11:10.:11:13.

perfectly legal to buy them online as well. But one charity is asking

:11:13.:11:17.

traders to examine their consciences. This conference in

:11:18.:11:22.

Mansfield heard why they're so worried. A survey of vulnerable

:11:22.:11:25.

young people found that two thirds of them had taken legal highs. Far

:11:25.:11:29.

more than the number who smoked. We are really concerned. The stuff they

:11:29.:11:33.

are selling is just as damaging as illegal drugs. They may think it is

:11:33.:11:38.

legal, but may have some legal substances such as mephedrone. ——

:11:38.:11:44.

some illegal substances. Legal or not, these young men say they don't

:11:44.:11:48.

want to repeat the experience. But there'll be plenty of others still

:11:48.:11:52.

taking legal highs tonight. Next tonight, a breakthrough in IVF

:11:52.:11:56.

treatment which gives women a 20% greater chance of falling pregnant.

:11:56.:11:59.

It's a relatively simple procedure which is being trialled by

:11:59.:12:04.

researchers at a Nottingham clinic. They say the results are very

:12:04.:12:07.

significant and very promising for women trying to have a baby through

:12:07.:12:16.

IVF. Sarah Teale reports. Let's see what he is up to.

:12:16.:12:20.

This is an exciting time for mum—to—be Jo Cummings from Ripley.

:12:20.:12:24.

She's almost 29 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. After trying to conceive

:12:24.:12:30.

for three years, she fell pregnant on her first cycle of IVF treatment

:12:30.:12:34.

at the Nurture Clinic in Nottingham. She was part of a clinical trial for

:12:35.:12:38.

a procedure called endometrial scratching. A tiny sample of the

:12:38.:12:42.

womb lining is taken away before IVF takes place. It is fantastic to know

:12:42.:12:48.

now how worthwhile it has potentially been for me to take

:12:48.:12:53.

part, but at the time, even 1% more of a chance was worth it. When you

:12:53.:12:57.

feel desperately trying to get pregnant, I read that and thought,

:12:57.:13:03.

if it helps me, or anyone else, it is worth it. There have been greater

:13:03.:13:09.

developments in IVF, such as number of eggs and embryos. The missing

:13:09.:13:17.

part of the puzzle has been implementation. It's something as

:13:18.:13:21.

safe as this to do that, it would be fantastic. 180 women are taking part

:13:21.:13:28.

in the Nurture trials. The first study took place in Brazil.

:13:28.:13:32.

And the results are pretty astonishing. Pregnancy rates are up

:13:32.:13:43.

from 29% to 49%. And live births up from 23% to 42%. Why such a simple

:13:43.:13:52.

procedure works is still a mystery. A lot of anecdotal evidence. People

:13:52.:13:59.

who have had IVF in the past, or infertility investigations, and it

:13:59.:14:03.

has not worked, but the fall pregnant. It may be the lining of

:14:03.:14:07.

the womb regenerating itself. Or maybe complex than that, but that

:14:07.:14:12.

could be an easier way to understand it. Jo says she still can't believe

:14:12.:14:17.

she was one of the lucky ones. It still has not sunk in in, despite

:14:17.:14:20.

seeing him beautifully on—screen all. It amazes me every day. It is

:14:20.:14:32.

wonderful. Wonderful indeed. Lovely.

:14:32.:14:38.

New jobs in the gas industry are being promised with the opening of a

:14:38.:14:42.

£6 million training centre in the East Midlands. Half of National

:14:42.:14:45.

Grid's gas engineers are due to retire in the next ten years and new

:14:45.:14:49.

apprentices are now urgently needed. Simon Ward has been to the centre in

:14:49.:14:52.

Nottinghamshire. National Grid is a company that

:14:52.:14:55.

distributes gas and electricity to our homes on behalf of the energy

:14:55.:14:59.

firms. This training complex is being officially opened today at

:14:59.:15:02.

Eakring in Nottinghamshire. These pipes would normally be under high

:15:02.:15:06.

pressure with gas. For training purposes, high pressure air is used.

:15:06.:15:12.

With so many gas engineers due to retire from the company in the next

:15:12.:15:17.

decade, new staff will be needed and they'll be trained here. Technicians

:15:17.:15:19.

coming into this industry can experience the real physical reality

:15:20.:15:24.

of the equipment and the computers that drive the gas around the UK. We

:15:24.:15:29.

are going to be hiring and training thousands of engineers in the

:15:29.:15:33.

future. This industry needs a lot of talent coming in. We are investing

:15:33.:15:38.

in skills and people. There is another half miles were below ground

:15:38.:15:44.

of pipework. Davey is a big issue in this high—pressure. Trainees working

:15:44.:15:49.

very realistic conditions. The first apprentices studying here in

:15:49.:15:51.

Nottinghamshire have come down from Scotland. We can pick the brains of

:15:51.:15:56.

people with this knowledge, working in the industry for 40 years, and

:15:56.:16:00.

hope lay fill their boots at some point. It is not traditional to want

:16:00.:16:06.

to work in engineering, but interested for me. There must be

:16:06.:16:10.

more women interested in this type of job. The issues of how much

:16:10.:16:14.

energy costs and how it is generated are very much in people's minds at

:16:14.:16:17.

the moment. National Grid says it will stay at the forefront of the

:16:17.:16:23.

industry with this new centre. Beautiful sky there. Very nice.

:16:23.:16:30.

Still to come... A big moment for a mixed up mutt at the Mother of

:16:30.:16:34.

Parliaments. An "almost poodle" called Noodle is crowned Westminster

:16:34.:16:37.

Dog of the Year. But which honourable member does he belong to?

:16:37.:16:49.

Got a glimpse there. Just a tiny glimpse.

:16:50.:16:53.

Volunteers have completed the first leg of clearing blockages from a

:16:54.:16:57.

dyke which caused major flooding in a Nottinghamshire town a few weeks

:16:57.:17:01.

ago. So far, tonnes of debris has been collected from the waterway in

:17:01.:17:04.

Southwell. The group is now demanding that it's regularly

:17:04.:17:07.

maintained by council workers. Quentin Rayner is there.

:17:07.:17:10.

Whenever floods hit Southwell, Potwell Dyke is usually to blame.

:17:11.:17:15.

Unable to cope with sudden surges of rainwater, and clogged by debris, it

:17:15.:17:19.

overflows causing misery and mayhem. In July, three inches of rain fell

:17:19.:17:22.

in just 80 minutes, making the county the wettest place in the UK.

:17:22.:17:27.

Since then, twice a week, a team of volunteers has been clearing the

:17:28.:17:31.

dyke to improve its ability to cope with any future flash floods. In

:17:31.:17:35.

seven weeks, a lot has been removed from the half a kilometre cleared so

:17:35.:17:46.

far. All this huge pile, we have taken to the tip, huge quantities of

:17:46.:17:52.

recycling, metal, plastic, huge rubbish, about 120 bags of what

:17:52.:17:56.

looks like domestic rubbish, but it is nasty and smelly. The problem is

:17:56.:18:01.

the dyke isn't actually owned by anybody with overall responsibility.

:18:01.:18:04.

There's confusion and uncertainty among the 80 or so landowners as to

:18:04.:18:07.

their responsibilities about maintaining it. We are looking for

:18:07.:18:11.

one government agency to take this on board and look after the dyke

:18:11.:18:15.

properly. The County Council, District Council, perhaps. Done

:18:15.:18:21.

piecemeal will not work. We need one board to look and make sure it is OK

:18:21.:18:26.

and clear it when needed. The County Council was at work today, repairing

:18:26.:18:30.

a hole caused by the floods beneath a bridge over the dyke that

:18:30.:18:35.

threatened to rupture a sewer. Last month, hundreds of people packed

:18:35.:18:38.

into the Minster for the first public meeting of the newly formed

:18:38.:18:42.

Southwell flood forum. The County Council has commissioned a detailed

:18:42.:18:45.

flood study, which is expected to be published by next April. Action is

:18:45.:18:49.

promised. It can't come soon enough for those in peril from the Potwell

:18:49.:18:55.

Dyke. Thank goodness we have had a quiet

:18:55.:19:04.

autumn so far. So far, chickens and hatching and whatnot. Now for the

:19:04.:19:08.

sport. First, the chairman wants them in

:19:08.:19:11.

the Championship. Their manager says second place sucks. I am quoting

:19:12.:19:17.

there. No lack of ambition then at Mansfield Town. Back in the Football

:19:17.:19:22.

League after a five year exile, expectations are high. Despite two

:19:22.:19:25.

recent defeats, the Stags have been surprising people this season.

:19:25.:19:27.

Angela Rafferty went behind the scenes at their midweek cup game

:19:27.:19:31.

this with week. An hour before kick—off and this is

:19:31.:19:34.

where you'll find the man who masterminded Stags promotion. Alone

:19:34.:19:37.

in his office, finalising his set pieces for tonight's match. The last

:19:37.:19:42.

three or four years have been fourth from bottom and people calling for

:19:42.:19:46.

my head. But off to a good start. The club seems to have a massive

:19:46.:19:53.

smile on its face. Little wonder. An unexpected defeat last weekend ended

:19:53.:19:56.

an eight game unbeaten run enough to put them into the playoffs.

:19:56.:20:00.

Expectations are high. I wanted to drive on the club. Try and finish as

:20:00.:20:08.

high as we can. For Mansfield fans, a return to the Football League

:20:08.:20:12.

means the world. Something you cannot define, it is in your heart.

:20:12.:20:19.

The add your site. Absolutely fantastic, brilliant start to the

:20:19.:20:25.

season. —— the team is your side. A fantastic start. As the fans

:20:25.:20:32.

streaming, it is down to business. A break from league action this week

:20:32.:20:49.

brought the auld enemy to town. Up against Chesterfield in the

:20:49.:20:52.

Johnstone's Paint Trophy. The Stags' performance outstanding. The result,

:20:52.:20:56.

though, a big disappointment. Gutting, but it is a long season. I

:20:56.:21:01.

have to stay focused, mentally strong, I have good young players. I

:21:01.:21:07.

believe in them. I think they will achieve. A post—match beer with the

:21:07.:21:18.

fans. A chance for the chairman to make clear his vision for the

:21:18.:21:22.

future. We are a championship club. We want to be in the championship

:21:22.:21:28.

season after season. They've proved many doubters wrong already. You

:21:28.:21:34.

would not bet against them doing it again this season.

:21:34.:21:40.

Some other news, Leicester Tigers will hand a debut to winger Miles

:21:40.:21:43.

Benjamin in tomorrow's Heineken Cup clash with Ulster. The game in

:21:43.:21:46.

Belfast will cap Benjamin's return from injury. Ulster's Ravenhill

:21:46.:21:49.

Stadium is already sold out. But we'll be there for you.

:21:49.:21:53.

One of the country's top sprinters is moving to the region. World

:21:53.:21:56.

junior 100m champion Adam Gemili will train in Loughborough for the

:21:56.:22:00.

forthcoming season. The 20—year—old has split from his coach and will

:22:00.:22:04.

Britain's second—fastest sprinter in history and Paralympic star Jonnie

Peacock. He'll divide his time between Loughborough and London

where he's studying for a degree. Finally tonight, our search for the

BBC East Midlands Sports Unsung Hero. We're looking for a volunteer

:22:21.:22:26.

who's given their time and effort to help sport in your community. The

:22:26.:22:30.

winner will get a very special night out at the BBC Sports Personality of

mobiles. Nominations need to be in by next Wednesday. Please get in

:22:55.:22:58.

touch if you know someone, they deserve the recognition.

:22:58.:23:04.

Please do, it is so worth it. 500 Aquaboxes have been packed up

:23:04.:23:11.

ready to leave the East Midlands bound for Syrian refugees in

:23:11.:23:13.

Lebanon. The boxes contain water filters and survival essentials.

:23:13.:23:16.

They have been assembled by volunteers in the Derbyshire village

:23:16.:23:20.

of Cromford. Over two million people die every

:23:20.:23:29.

year due to waterborne diseases. If an earthquake or flood has displaced

:23:29.:23:32.

you, it can have tragic effects on whole communities. The charity

:23:32.:23:38.

Aquabox is trying to help. This morning, 500 boxes of filters and

:23:38.:23:41.

aid worth £60,000 are being shipped to Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Each

:23:41.:23:46.

one goes to a family, containing a family filter which will give at

:23:46.:23:51.

least 18,000 litres of safe drinking water. The rest of the boxes full of

:23:51.:23:56.

emergency aid, tarpaulin, tools to make shelter. Stainless steel cooker

:23:56.:24:02.

parts, plates, bowls, mugs, to enable people to eat. They make the

:24:02.:24:08.

water filters here in Cromford. These smalls pumps can filter all

:24:08.:24:11.

bacteria out, so families can drink safely. It is a project we are

:24:11.:24:18.

immensely proud of. I think the fact we get about 70 volunteers coming

:24:18.:24:22.

here every week to either assemble the pumps or the boxes. They come

:24:22.:24:28.

and enjoy coming. They realise that they are doing something that will

:24:28.:24:34.

help these poor, unfortunate people. There's a constant need for these

:24:34.:24:38.

boxes all across the world. And that needs constant donations.

:24:38.:24:47.

They are brilliant, those water boxes. Great work being done in

:24:47.:24:52.

Derbyshire, as ever. Weather now, it was pouring outside. Not very nice,

:24:52.:24:58.

feeling chillier, because of dramatic changes.

:24:58.:25:07.

Some lovely warm temperatures on Monday, but dramatic come down

:25:07.:25:13.

today, struggling to reach double figures.

:25:13.:25:21.

11 degrees not particularly unusual, but the strength of wind made it

:25:21.:25:26.

feel chilly. A northerly wind particularly felt across the East

:25:26.:25:33.

Coast. That is normally a sheltered wind direction, keeping most of the

:25:33.:25:37.

showers subway, some decent sunshine this morning, but the wind coming to

:25:37.:25:43.

an easterly direction, bringing more showers tonight. Quite a damp night,

:25:43.:25:50.

cloudy, breezy, but all of that will hold temperatures up, so not that

:25:50.:25:57.

much lower than the time highs, around seven or eight Celsius.

:25:57.:26:01.

Tomorrow morning starting cloudy, damp, spit sunspots rain through the

:26:01.:26:06.

morning, but brisk northerly winds continuing, driving the showers

:26:06.:26:11.

through. Tom Dryer sports tomorrow, but staying cloudy and breezy. ——

:26:11.:26:18.

some Dryer sports. Temperatures higher around 13 or 14 degrees. The

:26:18.:26:24.

wind will make it feel cooler. Into the weekend, keeping that strong

:26:24.:26:29.

easterly wind through Saturday. The weather front will edge northwards

:26:29.:26:33.

through the day as well, so not a very good day for Saturday, cloudy,

:26:33.:26:38.

damp, outbreaks of the rain, and the wind making it feel chilly.

:26:38.:26:44.

Hopefully, the wind easing down into Sunday. Some rain around, some

:26:44.:26:49.

cloud, and quite cool, and not much fine of things warming up next week.

:26:49.:26:57.

Never mind. Staying cheerful. Finally, one local pet has been

:26:57.:27:04.

putting their best paw forward. A Leicestershire MP's dog has been

:27:04.:27:07.

crowned Westminster Dog of the Year for 2013. Alan Duncan's cocker

:27:07.:27:11.

spaniel poodle cross, named Noodle, was the proud pooch who took the

:27:12.:27:18.

title in today's competition. This is a dog —— dogafesto, not a

:27:18.:27:35.

manifesto. Noodle once an end to politics and ruff justice! I have

:27:35.:27:44.

never seen him looking so pleased. That is it from us.
