Commonwealth Summit in Sri Lanka. That is all from the BBC

:00:00.:00:08.

This is East Midlands Today. Tonight ` a Government minister says we'll

:00:09.:00:18.

learn to love High Speed rail. Lord Deayton ran the London Olympics and

:00:19.:00:22.

claims there are similarities. I was confronted by the same kind of

:00:23.:00:28.

cynicism. By the time it got to the games, everyone was completely

:00:29.:00:30.

engaged, saw what was in it for them.

:00:31.:00:37.

A chance underground at Nottinghamshire's remaining coal

:00:38.:00:40.

mine. Willie have to dig deeper to find a solution to energy bills?

:00:41.:00:47.

Research to mend broken bones is being used to treat brain tumours.

:00:48.:00:52.

Thousands of ways to raise thousands for Pudsey. All the excitement of

:00:53.:00:56.

Children in Need. A very good evening. Welcome to

:00:57.:01:13.

Friday's programme. I'm on my own tonight ` because as you've probably

:01:14.:01:16.

guessed, Anne's out on Pudsey patrol, getting ready for a mega

:01:17.:01:24.

night of fund`raising. Hello, Anne! Hello. Yes we are indeed, we had at

:01:25.:01:30.

the Nottingham tennis Centre to celebrate Children in Need. It is a

:01:31.:01:34.

charity which relies on your help to change the lives of young people and

:01:35.:01:39.

children. You do just that. We will need some of the people who benefit

:01:40.:01:44.

from the money you raise and many of the people who read that money. We

:01:45.:01:48.

have all sorts going on tonight, lots of fancy dress, face painting

:01:49.:01:53.

and lots of you coming down to join in to make it the best Children in

:01:54.:01:56.

Need ever. Thank you. More from Anne later. But first, a

:01:57.:02:01.

government minister claims HS2 is facing the same kind of cynicism

:02:02.:02:04.

that blighted the build`up to the London Olympics. Lord Deighton ` who

:02:05.:02:11.

ran the games ` now has a high`profile role with high speed

:02:12.:02:14.

rail. He was speaking as plans for the route went on show in this

:02:15.:02:17.

region's first ever public consultation event. Mike O'Sullivan

:02:18.:02:23.

reports. He is the former Olympics boss is trying to turn the ?50

:02:24.:02:30.

billion HS2 project into a one. Head of the games organisation for seven

:02:31.:02:34.

years, Lord Deighton is no cheer of the HS2 group task force, looking to

:02:35.:02:42.

maximise potential benefits. `` he is the chairman. He admits both

:02:43.:02:50.

projects shared similar problems. I was confronted by precisely the same

:02:51.:02:54.

kind of cynicism, will it be worth it, what is in it for us? By the

:02:55.:02:59.

demigod the games, everyone was completely engaged and saw what was

:03:00.:03:03.

in it for them. It was a great thing to have done. I take heart from

:03:04.:03:08.

hoping we can go through the same experience. The HS2 station for the

:03:09.:03:15.

East Midlands is planned for between Derby and the `` Nottingham. The

:03:16.:03:22.

road show made the first of seven public consultation calls to a

:03:23.:03:25.

region today. We are concerned about the environmental impact and road

:03:26.:03:31.

congestion. We have lots of issues in terms of road congestion because

:03:32.:03:36.

of tram developments and this will make it worse. The infrastructure

:03:37.:03:40.

cannot sustain the population which is the air at the moment. Back at

:03:41.:03:46.

Loughborough University is that `` researchers have no doubt about the

:03:47.:03:50.

value of HS2. As an engineer it is good because there will be job

:03:51.:03:55.

opportunities and it helps build the infrastructure. I think it is a

:03:56.:03:59.

brilliant idea. The country needs it. The public consultation period

:04:00.:04:07.

ends in January. If the task force `` the task force is to release a

:04:08.:04:11.

report soon after. Next, the daughter and son`in`law of

:04:12.:04:15.

an elderly couple found buried in their back garden in Mansfield have

:04:16.:04:18.

appeared in court again today. Susan and Christopher Edwards are jointly

:04:19.:04:23.

charged with two counts of murder. Sarah Teale was in court.

:04:24.:04:31.

This was daughter of Susan Edwards and her husband Christopher on their

:04:32.:04:35.

first court appearance, charged with the murders of her appearance in May

:04:36.:04:41.

1998. The elderly couple, William and Patricia Wycherley, lived at

:04:42.:04:46.

this house in the Forest town area of Mansfield for years before

:04:47.:04:51.

disappearing in the late 1990s. Neighbours believed they had

:04:52.:04:55.

emigrated. Following a tip`off last month, police discovered what is

:04:56.:04:58.

believed to be there remains, buried in the back garden. Postmortems

:04:59.:05:05.

revealed they had both been shot. Susan Edwards who is 55, and

:05:06.:05:09.

Christopher Edwards who is 57, were later arrested at the impact was

:05:10.:05:14.

train station. They were charged with murder. They appeared at

:05:15.:05:18.

Nottingham Crown Court today for a brief preliminary hearing. The only

:05:19.:05:24.

spoke to confirm their names. They stood next to each other in the dock

:05:25.:05:29.

while dates were arranged for their case. They will next appear before

:05:30.:05:35.

the court on December 23. They are expected to enter pleas then and

:05:36.:05:40.

until then the R.N. Reminded custody. `` until then they are in a

:05:41.:05:54.

romance. `` remand. Nottinghamshire police say that the

:05:55.:05:57.

body of a woman found in Nottingham is believed to be that of the

:05:58.:06:01.

missing GP, Elizabeth Kinston. Police officers searching for the

:06:02.:06:03.

missing mother`of`two, made the discovery yesterday on grassland in

:06:04.:06:06.

the Dunkirk area of the city. A postmortem examination took place

:06:07.:06:09.

this morning, but the full results are expected to take several weeks.

:06:10.:06:12.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

:06:13.:06:14.

The jury, deciding if a Loughborough teenager prepared a terrorist

:06:15.:06:17.

attack, has been sent home for the weekend. The 17`year`old has

:06:18.:06:24.

admitted possessing explosives. But he's denied plotting to use bombs

:06:25.:06:27.

and guns to settle scores and attack Muslims. The trial heard that

:06:28.:06:30.

Loughborough Mosque was at the top of his list of potential targets.

:06:31.:06:33.

And he'd written detailed notes about how to attack his old school

:06:34.:06:36.

in the town. A Nottinghamshire farmer who

:06:37.:06:39.

admitted killing his wife has been detained indefinitely in a secure

:06:40.:06:41.

hospital. Peter Thurgarland strangled his wife Julia at their

:06:42.:06:44.

home in Maplebeck just after Christmas last year. Nottingham

:06:45.:06:48.

Crown Court heard that the 72`year`old was suffering from a

:06:49.:06:51.

severe mental illness which had developed after their property was

:06:52.:06:59.

flooded in the storms of 2007. The Chancellor, George Osborne,

:07:00.:07:01.

today joined colliery workers underground at the region's last

:07:02.:07:08.

deep coal mine. And he came with a pre`Christmas present for the miners

:07:09.:07:14.

and their families. The Chancellor said the government would pay for

:07:15.:07:19.

coal delivered to ex`miners' homes. The benefit was scrapped when

:07:20.:07:22.

privately`owned UK Coal went bust earlier this year. From Thoresby

:07:23.:07:24.

Colliery, here's our Political Editor John Hess. Clocking off at

:07:25.:07:29.

the end of the shift at the colliery. Some of the 650 miners who

:07:30.:07:36.

work here headed for the showers and home, and the Chancellor headed in

:07:37.:07:42.

the opposite direction, to join the late shift. The visit was no

:07:43.:07:47.

accident. He has been under political treasure to help some of

:07:48.:07:52.

the 2000 miners who were employed by the company and who lost their call

:07:53.:07:55.

allowance when the firm hit financial trouble. Last week local

:07:56.:08:00.

MPs press the government to intervene. There's a lot of people

:08:01.:08:05.

out there worried about the loss of their call and they need support

:08:06.:08:08.

from the government. The government needs to step in and help out. The

:08:09.:08:15.

concession for retired miners was never an issue but the workers of UK

:08:16.:08:20.

coal found that it added to their current energy bills. Is the visit a

:08:21.:08:26.

clue to the contents of his mini budget next month? It has given the

:08:27.:08:32.

main something of a pre`Christmas budget will stop what will be in it

:08:33.:08:35.

for the rest of us to help with soaring electricity bills? I asked

:08:36.:08:37.

why he was making the announcement now. We're helping with the

:08:38.:08:44.

concession for ex`miners. I'm here at the end of the week when jobs are

:08:45.:08:49.

being created in this country, unemployment is down and inflation

:08:50.:08:53.

is down. As Britain recovers from all that went wrong five years ago,

:08:54.:08:57.

we make sure all parts of the country benefit. If he is planning

:08:58.:09:03.

any more help to cushion rising energy bills, he was not letting

:09:04.:09:09.

warned today. `` letting Alaun. A Derbyshire man's admitted murdering

:09:10.:09:12.

his former girlfriend. Cornelius Brown, who's twenty three, pleaded

:09:13.:09:15.

guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to killing Jade Riley`Ward. She was

:09:16.:09:18.

found dead at her home in Somercotes in September last year.

:09:19.:09:20.

A postmortem examination revealed the thirty year old died from

:09:21.:09:25.

multiple stab wounds. Brown who's from Riddings will be sentenced next

:09:26.:09:30.

month. A taxi driver who drove into a

:09:31.:09:34.

Leicester woman while she was on holiday in New York won't face any

:09:35.:09:39.

criminal charges. Twenty four year old Sian Green was injured last

:09:40.:09:42.

August when she was hit by a taxi that mounted a kerb in Manhattan.

:09:43.:09:45.

Her lawyers say she's incredibly dismayed the driver won't be

:09:46.:09:48.

charged, and she'll pursue a civil action for compensation.

:09:49.:09:55.

The family of a Derbyshire teenager, Jess Gauntley, who died from a brain

:09:56.:09:58.

tumour are welcoming new research which it's hoped will improve

:09:59.:10:00.

survival rates. Experts at the University of Nottingham have

:10:01.:10:03.

developed an unusual method of delivering chemotherapy drugs

:10:04.:10:06.

directly to the affected cells of cancer patients. Carolyn Moses

:10:07.:10:19.

reports. The 16`year`old Jess Gauntley was diagnosed last year

:10:20.:10:23.

with a leg and brain tumour. She died in February. `` with a

:10:24.:10:31.

malignant brain tumour. Her family set up a foundation to fund more

:10:32.:10:39.

research. The University researched a powder which can be transformed

:10:40.:10:43.

into a new form of treatment for the same type of cancer that Jess

:10:44.:10:51.

Gauntley hard. It has the consistency like toothpaste. A

:10:52.:10:55.

sergeant would apply this so that it would be moulded like a cab wall. ``

:10:56.:11:03.

like a cavity wall. It would be gradually released over several

:11:04.:11:07.

weeks. When the temp `` tumour is removed, the polymeric directly

:11:08.:11:14.

releases chemotherapy into nearby cells. This avoids chemotherapy

:11:15.:11:21.

drugs running round the whole body and it is hoped to be used for other

:11:22.:11:27.

cancers as well. This new delivery system which can help deliver more

:11:28.:11:30.

directly the chemotherapy drugs to the brain and give another chance to

:11:31.:11:35.

a child, then it has to be good news. This could be used for other

:11:36.:11:40.

tumours for which surgery cannot remove all the cells. One example

:11:41.:11:47.

would be breast cancer. I hope would be to broaden out this project. This

:11:48.:11:54.

might not take too much time. Clinical trials on humans with these

:11:55.:11:57.

conditions could be just three years away.

:11:58.:12:04.

Good news is we hope. From concerts by musical icons to a

:12:05.:12:08.

two month light festival ` those are some of the events that COULD take

:12:09.:12:12.

place if Leicester becomes the next UK City of Culture. For the first

:12:13.:12:15.

time the full bid document has been made public and our arts reporter

:12:16.:12:23.

Geeta Pendse has been taking a look. Arriving to present their beds in

:12:24.:12:28.

London yesterday, the team went before the judges. Now it is the

:12:29.:12:34.

turn of the public to take a look. After ten months of planning, this

:12:35.:12:40.

is it. 146 pages outlining the artistic vision of Leicester and the

:12:41.:12:43.

cost of delivery. What is on the agenda? ?1.2 million light

:12:44.:12:54.

Festival. Concerts up `` concerts, bringing back famous musicians.

:12:55.:13:02.

Lester's two sons, Sir David and Richard Attenborough will be at the

:13:03.:13:07.

centre of an exhibition. It is believed hosting the year will bring

:13:08.:13:10.

in an extra ?38 million from visitors. Geeta is back from

:13:11.:13:15.

Londonderry and joins us in the studio. So what's next? All of the

:13:16.:13:22.

teams have now pitched to the judges. Swansea had their chance

:13:23.:13:29.

this morning. The judges will make a recommendation to the government and

:13:30.:13:32.

next Wednesday the Culture Secretary, Maria Miller, will make

:13:33.:13:37.

the formal allies admit. It is very close. What is even closer is

:13:38.:13:45.

Children in Need, are you a fan? I am a huge fan. I have brought these

:13:46.:13:50.

because I'm such a fan. This does not fit on my wrist.

:13:51.:13:55.

Thanks, Geeta. Well, talking of big cultural events ` it's all happening

:13:56.:13:58.

at the Nottingham tennis centre tonight. A night when anything can

:13:59.:14:01.

and probably WILL happen for Children in Need. Goodbye from Geeta

:14:02.:14:04.

and me and hello again to Anne! Thank you very much. We have a great

:14:05.:14:09.

crowd here at Nottingham tennis centre. Give us a wave everybody. We

:14:10.:14:16.

have Pudsey. There is so much going on, face baking, `` days painting.

:14:17.:14:24.

We have a fantastic tennis match going on next door. Everyone is

:14:25.:14:29.

dressed up as superheroes, one of the themes of Children in Need. It

:14:30.:14:33.

is all about helping people and raising money. We do raising money

:14:34.:14:38.

very well in the East Midlands, we are big on caning. We raised more

:14:39.:14:44.

than ever before last year, over ?1 million. `` we are big on key ring.

:14:45.:14:58.

`` caring. Our cameras have been out around the region today, here they

:14:59.:14:59.

are. Give Pudsey a hug. Put your money in, brilliant. Thank

:15:00.:16:22.

you, everybody. You are amazing. We do do particularly well here. It is

:16:23.:16:29.

the most amazing charity. We have been bonding with groups over the

:16:30.:16:32.

week to help young people and children have a better life, get out

:16:33.:16:38.

of bad situations. One group I met was fantastic. They are called

:16:39.:16:46.

Nottingham photographers hub. It is all about helping people find

:16:47.:16:50.

themselves and get confidence by taking photographs. We have the

:16:51.:16:55.

pictures here, they are special. I went to meet them. Why don't you

:16:56.:17:01.

have a look and make up your own mind about how fantastic this group

:17:02.:17:07.

is. Awarding skills, credits at level

:17:08.:17:14.

one, congratulations. Pleased? Another success story. Ryan has made

:17:15.:17:19.

huge progress. He attends college three times a week. The project

:17:20.:17:24.

takes referrals from lots of organisations. It is about people

:17:25.:17:30.

who had substance `` substance abuse. Young people who have been

:17:31.:17:35.

homeless, young people in the care system. People with learning

:17:36.:17:39.

disabilities. How does photography help Wes mac it is inaccessible

:17:40.:17:49.

medium. Immediately people are interested. Once we get the men we

:17:50.:17:54.

use photography to develop confidence and self`esteem. It

:17:55.:17:59.

allows you to express your feelings and emotions through your

:18:00.:18:03.

photography. If you feel you have no one to speak to, taking pictures

:18:04.:18:08.

help. It is something to look forward to. I thought, I have

:18:09.:18:15.

photography so it brings up my spirits. I have a good time. Does it

:18:16.:18:20.

change your life is coming here? Definitely. Yes. Finding this course

:18:21.:18:29.

has made life so much easier. It was only for a year, but it boosts your

:18:30.:18:34.

confidence and everything. It has changed a lot. Hopefully in January

:18:35.:18:42.

I will go back to college to get a sport qualification. I want to start

:18:43.:18:49.

my own business. I like having a camera in my hand and filming

:18:50.:18:53.

everyone full top I want to do what he is doing. What would you say to

:18:54.:19:01.

people to give to Children in Need? Please guess, there are lots of

:19:02.:19:05.

people who if given an opportunity would be able to achieve what they

:19:06.:19:11.

want to achieve. We had to meet this young lady. What is your name?

:19:12.:19:19.

Megan. You look beautiful. What are you painted as? A tiger? No. Lots of

:19:20.:19:31.

little Pudsey is here. Colin is in the tennis court next door. Hello.

:19:32.:19:40.

We have to see some tennis. You will see a lot of fancy dress costumes.

:19:41.:19:46.

These are the performance teams and they are taking this tournament very

:19:47.:19:51.

seriously. They are playing to win. Here the tennis centre it is more

:19:52.:19:58.

than just playing the game, they want to identify and bring through

:19:59.:20:02.

future champions. I came down last week to see how they do that.

:20:03.:20:09.

There is no doubt about it, Andy Murray's Wimbledon triumph in a

:20:10.:20:21.

national dam. We can win at tennis. In Nottingham, they think this

:20:22.:20:28.

line`up is the answer. The tennis Centre is working on finding the

:20:29.:20:33.

ones who can go to the top. That is the attitude we try and instil, why

:20:34.:20:39.

not you? We try and introduce a can`do attitude. We have the

:20:40.:20:45.

facility and the coaching expertise. We have the environment so why not?

:20:46.:20:50.

The start very young, the starter four. They love it. There is

:20:51.:20:57.

ambition to. I want to go all the way. I want to go to grand slams and

:20:58.:21:07.

everything. 11`year`olds are training 13 hours a week. The

:21:08.:21:12.

hitting gets harder and the competition fiercer. You get a good

:21:13.:21:16.

opportunity to play tennis. You enjoy it a lot. How good do you

:21:17.:21:24.

think you are? I am better than her. I am better than you. I have beaten

:21:25.:21:29.

you lots of times. Older players train alongside younger players.

:21:30.:21:36.

There's no pressure at their age. They can just play and enjoy running

:21:37.:21:47.

around. They are undistracted by the gorgeous tree shadows in this dome.

:21:48.:21:51.

They are beginning to work out what they can achieve. It has supported

:21:52.:21:57.

me throughout my tennis career. It is a long journey but it has helped

:21:58.:22:04.

me develop my game. I have a good relationship with coaches. It has

:22:05.:22:10.

been good. Attitude again, and here they believe they can teach it. You

:22:11.:22:20.

saw there some interviews but here is a performance director. How good

:22:21.:22:25.

is it here? It is fantastic and we have players and parents joining in,

:22:26.:22:29.

everyone is chipping in to do something for Children in Need. Tell

:22:30.:22:35.

us about Freya Christie and what she has achieved in the last few weeks.

:22:36.:22:42.

She has been doing really well. She has made good progress and is

:22:43.:22:45.

currently the youngest British player with the senior tennis

:22:46.:22:51.

ranking which is fantastic. She has just entered the top 100 in the

:22:52.:22:53.

world junior international rankings. Are you confident that as

:22:54.:23:00.

a future champions somewhere in this hall? Why not? They have every

:23:01.:23:06.

opportunity. We have a whole bunch of children and committed parents

:23:07.:23:10.

and they are all invested in trying to be the next Andy Murray. Why

:23:11.:23:16.

not? I am impressed how seriously everyone is taking it distressed ``

:23:17.:23:20.

despite being dressed in fancy dress. Yes, it is very competitive,

:23:21.:23:26.

especially when you get the coaches involved. Thank you very much. It is

:23:27.:23:37.

football's international break but we don't go without completely.

:23:38.:23:40.

Attractive home games for both Notts County and Mansfield this weekend `

:23:41.:23:43.

in Leagues one and two respectively. It's new Notts manager Shaun Derry's

:23:44.:23:46.

first home game in charge. Rugby's Leicester Tigers are in LV Cup

:23:47.:23:50.

action at Worcester tonight ` but arguably the standout games of the

:23:51.:23:53.

weekend are in Ice Hockey. Nottingham Panthers have an away and

:23:54.:23:56.

home double header with big rivals Sheffield Steelers.

:23:57.:23:58.

That is what is going on in the sport, but I am here at the tennis

:23:59.:24:01.

centre. Somewhere I have my fancy dress. I think I should go and get

:24:02.:24:11.

involved. See you later. I love a man involved. Good old

:24:12.:24:17.

Colin. I must introduce this gentleman, Pete Whitehead, head of

:24:18.:24:24.

tennis. You surprised at how many people we have got? It is

:24:25.:24:30.

fantastic, what a great audience. It is brilliant. We have all the

:24:31.:24:37.

coaches out on court to help players. We have a tournament as you

:24:38.:24:41.

said. It is fantastic to have so many people out there. You have all

:24:42.:24:46.

these inflatables which came from the lawn tennis Association? Yes,

:24:47.:24:54.

they sent them up from the O2 Arena. We are privileged to have them

:24:55.:24:59.

appear. It is a fantastic centre and we would like to say thank you very

:25:00.:25:03.

much. What would you say to anyone setting up home with their feet up

:25:04.:25:07.

saying it is too cold to go out tonight? It is never too cold to go

:25:08.:25:13.

out and this is in doors. Come down and have a shot. You may just find

:25:14.:25:18.

the next Greg Rusedski or something. With a bit of luck. Thank you for

:25:19.:25:25.

having us here. Give us a wave, everybody. Do not worry about the

:25:26.:25:32.

cold, just come on down. Will it get any colder.

:25:33.:25:37.

The lady to my left is wearing a pink summer dress, welcome back,

:25:38.:25:42.

Anne. Give us some nice weather please.

:25:43.:25:46.

Anne. Give us some nice It is going to get much colder, a

:25:47.:25:51.

real taste of winter as we head into next week. Not too bad today, more

:25:52.:25:59.

clout than we expected. If you got clear skies, you were lucky. Cloudy

:26:00.:26:05.

overnight tonight. There is an exception in the south`east of

:26:06.:26:12.

Leicestershire and Rutland. You may keep clear skies. That is the chance

:26:13.:26:19.

of some frost forming. For the rest of us it is cloudy. Under the cloud

:26:20.:26:26.

we will see temperatures holding up around five or six Celsius. Not as

:26:27.:26:31.

cold as last night. Tomorrow morning, fog will take its time to

:26:32.:26:35.

clear. Generally it is an overcast day. Remaining dry with a high

:26:36.:26:42.

temperature of nine Celsius. We see a weather front drink `` dropping

:26:43.:26:47.

south on Saturday night. That will bring outbreaks of rain. That is the

:26:48.:26:52.

story on Sunday, a damp day. Some dry spells to be had to stop

:26:53.:26:58.

temperatures around 10 Celsius. This is the outlook for Monday. Take your

:26:59.:27:02.

scarf and gloves because temperatures will get lower

:27:03.:27:06.

throughout the day. It will be bitterly cold. Temperatures will

:27:07.:27:11.

struggle to get higher than five Celsius by the middle of the week.

:27:12.:27:15.

Winter is really on the way. Time to wrap up warm. I think Pudsey might

:27:16.:27:24.

need another court next week. It looks like good fun next door. It

:27:25.:27:30.

is, but it is also really competitive. Did you see the person

:27:31.:27:35.

wearing the Gandalf costume? Very impressive work. This is all about

:27:36.:27:42.

raising money for children. We will meet a lot of the people who have

:27:43.:27:46.

raised the money and lots of the people who have been helped by

:27:47.:27:48.

Children
