awards have contracted the norovirus. Also to, the boy with the

Kenya who was saved by his younger brother. I would have been stuck in

hospital, not able to do anything he didn't give it to me. Plus all eyes

:00:34.:00:41.

on Richard on the eve of the battle to decide where he is buried. And

:00:42.:00:47.

behind`the`scenes with Carl Froch afterward his most controversial

:00:48.:00:55.

fights. The referees are there to support the fighters, it's a sport,

:00:56.:00:56.

we are not in ancient Rome. Good evening and welcome to Monday's

:00:57.:01:07.

programme. First tonight, a sure sign that winter's on the way. Cases

:01:08.:01:14.

of Norovirus are being 0 sign that winter's on the way. Cases

:01:15.:01:16.

of Norovirus are being reported in our hospitals once more. This time

:01:17.:01:19.

it's the Leicester NHS hospitals where patients on five wards have

:01:20.:01:22.

been diagnosed with the winter vomiting bug. The illness,

:01:23.:01:24.

characterised by sickness and diarrhoea, is a major challenge for

:01:25.:01:27.

the NHS. The main problem is controlling the spread. Our Health

:01:28.:01:30.

Correspondent Rob Sissons has been to two of our hospitals to see

:01:31.:01:41.

what's being done. At Leicester 's NHS hospitals, at

:01:42.:01:45.

least 17 patients and nine members of staff have gone down with

:01:46.:01:49.

norovirus. The good news is people usually feel better after 24 248

:01:50.:01:56.

hours. The bad news is, highly contagious and is a really just a

:01:57.:02:02.

cool nightmare to try and contain. Because we have lots of people in

:02:03.:02:07.

hospitals, patients, staff and visitors, whenever norovirus occurs,

:02:08.:02:14.

it can spend quickly. This is one of the wards where patients have been

:02:15.:02:18.

infected with norovirus. The message to visitors is to stop and check

:02:19.:02:21.

that they have no symptoms before they venture through these doors. We

:02:22.:02:27.

have had visitors who have come in and develop symptoms on the ward.

:02:28.:02:31.

These visitors may well have felt well when I left by the time they

:02:32.:02:37.

arrived, they have been more unwell. The problem they have is they are

:02:38.:02:40.

bringing the virus into the hospital, infecting patients and

:02:41.:02:46.

staff. The official NHS advice, if you think you have norovirus, is to:

:02:47.:02:59.

it's not just people. Kingsmill hospital in Nottinghamshire is

:03:00.:03:10.

easier to clean, half of the 550 beds are in 0

:03:11.:03:10.

easier to clean, half of the 550 beds are in single rooms, where

:03:11.:03:13.

patients with norovirus can be isolated. We can close the doors,

:03:14.:03:19.

and there is more space between each bed in the Bay stop modern

:03:20.:03:26.

facilities are one thing but soap and water remains one of the best

:03:27.:03:33.

defences. Hospitals seem to blame visitors but staff and contractors,

:03:34.:03:38.

lots of people can spread it. That's true, and it's difficult to prove

:03:39.:03:41.

conclusively who caused what stop what we do know is there is

:03:42.:03:47.

anecdotal evidence evidence in Leicester of visitors throwing up on

:03:48.:03:50.

the ward, it's thought they had it. But that doesn't let staff off the

:03:51.:03:55.

hook. Can they say that every time they are following 0

:03:56.:03:57.

hook. Can they say that every time they are following to the letter

:03:58.:03:59.

infection control rules in every hospital? So of course, patients

:04:00.:04:07.

themselves campaign a role. `` can play a role. Every winter, there are

:04:08.:04:12.

up to a million cases of norovirus, it's very common, and most people

:04:13.:04:15.

can get it again, because you are not resistant to it. Thanks very

:04:16.:04:20.

much. A Nottingham man's been jailed for

:04:21.:04:24.

nine years after raping a woman in her home after a night out. Mosan

:04:25.:04:28.

Ahmed ` who's 22 and from Forest Fields ` asked to share a taxi with

:04:29.:04:32.

a woman after leaving a night club in October 2012. He got into her

:04:33.:04:36.

house after asking her for a cigarette. He was sentenced to nine

:04:37.:04:41.

years for rape at Nottingham Crown Court and will remain on licence

:04:42.:04:45.

until 2027. Derbyshire Police says it receives

:04:46.:04:48.

250 calls a day from people ringing for help with problems of domestic

:04:49.:04:53.

violence. Now the force is supporting a programme run by North

:04:54.:04:55.

Derbyshire 0 supporting a programme run by North

:04:56.:04:57.

Derbyshire Women's Aid. Its aim is to help people understand and

:04:58.:04:59.

recognise their abusive behaviour and will run in Buxton,

:05:00.:05:01.

Chesterfield, Ilkeston and Swadlincote. Men who are being

:05:02.:05:11.

abusive can volunteer themselves to come onto the programme. The

:05:12.:05:16.

programme is long, about 35 weeks, we expect men to come for two hours

:05:17.:05:21.

a week. But that programme will give them the strategies and tools to

:05:22.:05:26.

stop the abusive behaviour in their family and relationships.

:05:27.:05:30.

Still to come ` it's the eve of battle. Both sides in the Richard

:05:31.:05:34.

III burial row pin their hopes on a judicial review due tomorrow.

:05:35.:05:44.

Farmers in Derbyshire are hoping to stop the spread of TB in cattle with

:05:45.:05:49.

the county's first vaccination programme for badgers. The national

:05:50.:05:54.

farmers union is working with the county's Wildlife Trust to start the

:05:55.:05:58.

vaccinations in the Edale area in the Spring of next year. One farmer

:05:59.:06:03.

who's just had a case of TB in his herd says it could help protect

:06:04.:06:13.

livestock. Mike O'Sullivan reports. Slaughterman arrives at a farm in

:06:14.:06:18.

Edale Derbyshire. This cow is suspected to have TB and is being

:06:19.:06:23.

taken away to an abattoir. A postmortem should confirm things.

:06:24.:06:30.

What I am worried about now is what is going to happen next. We have to

:06:31.:06:34.

have two more clear tests, whether they will show signs of symptoms,

:06:35.:06:40.

we're not sure, have to wait. In Derbyshire, TB in cattle has roughly

:06:41.:06:41.

doubled. Badges get the blame from farmers

:06:42.:06:53.

for the increase. The government is carrying out a cult in the

:06:54.:06:56.

south`west, it's thought to be extended if it is successful. But

:06:57.:07:02.

around Edale, vaccination of badgers may be the way forward. Derbyshire

:07:03.:07:07.

farmers are now working with the Derbyshire wildlife trust to set up

:07:08.:07:09.

the first vaccination programme for badgers against TB next summer.

:07:10.:07:15.

It'll be the first its kind in the county. They have raised nearly

:07:16.:07:21.

50,000 to contribute towards vaccinating badgers. It's very

:07:22.:07:27.

expensive, it is very labour intensive. Edale is in the heart of

:07:28.:07:34.

an area where greater monitoring takes place in the hope that the

:07:35.:07:40.

spread of bovine TB can be halted. For farmer Robert, 0

:07:41.:07:41.

spread of bovine TB can be halted. For farmer Robert, vaccination of

:07:42.:07:47.

badgers offers hope. Anything that will reduce the incidence of TB in

:07:48.:07:51.

badgers will be good, whether it is vaccination or removal. Robert 's

:07:52.:07:58.

cattle cannot be moved off the farm until they get the all clear.

:07:59.:08:02.

It's been a year since a boy from Nottinghamshire received a

:08:03.:08:04.

life`saving bone marrow transplant from his younger brother.

:08:05.:08:09.

10`year`old Archie Andrews from West Bridgford overcame leukaemia when he

:08:10.:08:13.

was three but it returned a few years ago. Rebecca Sheeran reports.

:08:14.:08:23.

Boys will be boys, but these brothers are closer than most. Last

:08:24.:08:27.

year, Archie was diagnosed with leukaemia for the second time when

:08:28.:08:30.

he was just nine. His three`year`old brother Harvey was a bone marrow

:08:31.:08:35.

match and became one of the UK's youngest donors. I helped my brother

:08:36.:08:45.

and didn't hurt me. They took my blood out to Archie. If I didn't

:08:46.:08:53.

have it, I would have been stuck in hospital, not unable to do anything

:08:54.:08:59.

if he didn't give me blood. I'm going to school quite a lot now. We

:09:00.:09:06.

filmed with Archie shortly after he was diagnosed. Since then, the

:09:07.:09:10.

family has raised over ?23,000 for a cancer ward. They have been holding

:09:11.:09:14.

a party to thank everyone who has helped. So many people have helped,

:09:15.:09:21.

whether its fundraising, helping with the other two boys, when you

:09:22.:09:24.

have seen them go through so much pain and be so poorly, I cherish

:09:25.:09:28.

every moment, I don't take anything for granted. He was poorly before

:09:29.:09:35.

but now he is up and about playing God. `` playing football. I am

:09:36.:09:48.

really happy now. And that happiness really shows. Three brothers back to

:09:49.:09:50.

full strength. Professor Ajay Vora is the

:09:51.:09:53.

Consultant who carried out the procedure on the brothers at

:09:54.:09:56.

Sheffield Children's Hospital. Earlier I asked him just how

:09:57.:09:59.

complicated it was, for such a young donor like Harvey. It is very

:10:00.:10:08.

straightforward, he had general anaesthetic and we took about 300

:10:09.:10:11.

mils of what looks like blood from the back of his pelvis, within an

:10:12.:10:16.

hour of the procedure, he was awake and running around. He was home the

:10:17.:10:22.

next day. Extraordinary. Does this mean you might be using younger

:10:23.:10:26.

donors? Because Harvey was very young. He was one of our younger

:10:27.:10:33.

donors, what we have had a donor as young as nine months old. The

:10:34.:10:36.

younger they are, the better they tolerate the procedure. I believe

:10:37.:10:46.

the more usual method an aesthetic? In adults, we would give them an

:10:47.:10:51.

injection that recruit stem cells from the bone marrow into the blood

:10:52.:10:55.

and use a special machine to collect the stem cells from the blood, but

:10:56.:10:59.

the injection we had to give, we don't know the safety of it in

:11:00.:11:06.

children. What would you say to anybody who might be thinking about

:11:07.:11:12.

donating but is worried about it? There is a lot of information they

:11:13.:11:16.

will receive beforehand, and they will find the procedure isn't as

:11:17.:11:22.

difficult and arduous as they would imagine. Thank you very much.

:11:23.:11:29.

Derby could all but lose its mayor to save more than ?100,000 a year.

:11:30.:11:33.

The City Council's considering the move, claiming the job is no longer

:11:34.:11:37.

affordable. Under the proposals, Derby would still have a mayor ` but

:11:38.:11:42.

he ` or she ` would only chair full council meetings and attend a

:11:43.:11:45.

remembrance event. Civic engagements would only be attended if a private

:11:46.:11:51.

sponsor covered the costs. Meanwhile talks have taken place in

:11:52.:11:53.

Ashfield in Nottinghamshire about how the District Council there could

:11:54.:11:57.

cut almost ?5 million from its budget. The savings need to be made

:11:58.:12:01.

over the next five years. More than a million needs to be cut by 2015.

:12:02.:12:05.

The council wants residents to have their say on its proposals and many

:12:06.:12:08.

were encouraged to attend a series of council meetings.

:12:09.:12:20.

From the battle of Bosworth Field to the battle for the bones ` the war

:12:21.:12:24.

of the roses flares up again as campaigners take their fight over

:12:25.:12:27.

Richard the Third's bones to court. A judge will look at the rival

:12:28.:12:31.

claims from Leicester and York over where the king should finally be

:12:32.:12:34.

laid to rest. A decision is expected to be reached in a few weeks. 0

:12:35.:12:36.

laid to rest. A decision is expected to be reached in a few weeks. Helen

:12:37.:12:39.

Astle reports. After skeletal remains found beneath a car park

:12:40.:12:42.

were confirmed as the Kings in February, there has been a fight

:12:43.:12:47.

over whether `` over where ten four should be reinterred. Tomorrow the

:12:48.:12:50.

fight goes to the High Court in London. The Plantagenet Alliance

:12:51.:12:59.

want the remains reburied in York. It says it was the King 's wish. My

:13:00.:13:07.

clients feel that King Richard III had strong links with the North,

:13:08.:13:11.

particularly York. They feel that is the most appropriate place. We

:13:12.:13:15.

wouldn't have taken it this far if we thought we were going to lose.

:13:16.:13:19.

Obviously the decision has to be in the hands of the court, we're

:13:20.:13:25.

confident we will be a fair hearing. Here in Leicester, they are fighting

:13:26.:13:29.

back. Over 34,000 people have signed an online edition calling for

:13:30.:13:33.

Richard III to be reburied in the city. The remains should be buried

:13:34.:13:43.

here, definitely. I think you should be, seeing as his body was found

:13:44.:13:49.

here. It would be great if you went to York, if he was found here, he

:13:50.:13:55.

should stay here. The council gave permission to dig up the car park on

:13:56.:13:58.

the basis that the remains, if we discovered them, would be reinterred

:13:59.:14:04.

in Leicester. So the whole thing seeded on the basis that if we found

:14:05.:14:08.

Richard III, he would be reinterred him. Celebrity .2 Leicester being

:14:09.:14:16.

the place. So over 500 years since his death, it seems there are more

:14:17.:14:25.

battles ahead. Now, here's a brand new piece of

:14:26.:14:28.

clothing that you're more likely to see on a lifeboat than a catwalk.

:14:29.:14:31.

Researchers in the East Midlands have created an antenna that can be

:14:32.:14:34.

embroidered into clothes. It's designed for use by search and

:14:35.:14:38.

rescue teams to save lives. They say its impact could be huge. Navtej

:14:39.:14:43.

Johal reports. This sewing machine is for function

:14:44.:14:49.

not fashion. It is employed ring and antenna into the cloth that could

:14:50.:14:54.

save your life. We will replace this, it is difficult to operate in

:14:55.:15:00.

a hostile environment. This you will wear and not even notice. This joint

:15:01.:15:07.

project has taken three years and around half ?1 million to complete.

:15:08.:15:11.

The embroidery process is quicker and cheaper than using traditional

:15:12.:15:17.

antennas will stop the results could be invaluable in situations like

:15:18.:15:20.

these. A rescue mission carried out last year by the French Navy. It

:15:21.:15:30.

will ultimately save lives. Also, we are looking at medical applications

:15:31.:15:33.

where you can wear this device and it 0

:15:34.:15:33.

where you can wear this device and it will be monitoring print parts of

:15:34.:15:43.

the body functions. We are using the arm, it has particles that make it

:15:44.:15:49.

conductive. The functions are numerous. I believe the sky is the

:15:50.:15:55.

limit where the applications are concerned. This is completely

:15:56.:16:03.

soundproofed, there is no radio interference in here, certainly no

:16:04.:16:06.

mobile signal, it's designed to mimic what it's like in outer space

:16:07.:16:10.

or out at sea. And it's where they have been testing this fabric

:16:11.:16:14.

antenna. The technology has recently been bought by life jacket company

:16:15.:16:18.

who are planning to incorporate it into their products. It is hoped it

:16:19.:16:22.

will be available to be public in a years time.

:16:23.:16:28.

Still to come this evening ` a frosty feel to the weather. We'll

:16:29.:16:35.

have a full forecast from Kaye. And I am with the pupils are unearthing

:16:36.:16:37.

the past in their playground. Look at week gap over there! First

:16:38.:16:52.

tonight ` referee Howard Foster's been backed by the British Boxing

:16:53.:16:55.

board of control today after his controversial decision to stop Carl

:16:56.:16:58.

Froch's dramatic World Title fight with George Groves. It meant Froch

:16:59.:17:04.

retained his two super`middleweight belts on Saturday ` but both the ref

:17:05.:17:08.

AND Froch were booed by the crowd. Mark Shardlow had 0

:17:09.:17:09.

AND Froch were booed by the crowd. Mark Shardlow had the only camera in

:17:10.:17:14.

the dressing rooms after the fight. Ethan Ebanks`Landell it's 2am. Carl

:17:15.:17:20.

Froch heads back to his dressing room. His win earlier this year left

:17:21.:17:32.

a hero, he is the unwitting fill`in, with no sense of victory. There was

:17:33.:17:40.

a stunning start. Carl Froch was down in round one after an amazing

:17:41.:17:46.

reception. He was hanging on. George Groves was winning over the crowd,

:17:47.:17:52.

he was ahead at halfway. It was sensational boxing, but Carl Froch,

:17:53.:17:57.

with enormous strength, was forcing his way back into the fight when the

:17:58.:18:01.

referee intervened in the ninth to give it a dramatic, unsatisfying

:18:02.:18:12.

conclusion. Groves is disgusted! Rose is furious. There is going to

:18:13.:18:18.

be some controversy here. It got stopped too soon. He should have

:18:19.:18:26.

kept it going, really. Do we want him out in a cold `` in a coma? No

:18:27.:18:34.

we don't. He couldn't walk, the referee was carrying him. The fans

:18:35.:18:43.

didn't say that. Carl Froch was the cat `` champion. I am devastated

:18:44.:18:53.

that I was food. I don't get it, I always find a way to win. So I feel

:18:54.:18:57.

I have had that taken away from the tonight. It was tough to watch and

:18:58.:19:05.

tough on Carl Froch to have the glory of victory tarnished with

:19:06.:19:12.

upset fans. I am finishing him off, inflicting some damage, they are

hard job, he estimates based 0 does his job, which is a fantastic,

:19:18.:19:19.

hard job, he estimates based on its second decision. But what do I say

:19:20.:19:25.

to the people that were upset? It's a little bit silly, to be honest. I

:19:26.:19:34.

just thank the fans coming. It will be hard to avoid, for a rematch. But

:19:35.:19:38.

Carl Froch will not give up his world title else easily. `` world

title helps. Onto football, and some very bad

news for Nottingham Forest to start ` Captain Chris Cohen is out for the

:19:48.:19:51.

rest of the season after damaging his cruciate knee ligament in

:19:52.:19:54.

Saturday's match with Burnley. He's been one of the stand`out performers

:19:55.:19:58.

as Forest chase a place at the top. Right now, though, Leicester lead

:19:59.:20:04.

the East Midlands. The foxes are now one of three clubs level at the top

:20:05.:20:11.

of the championship. But you began to wonder whether it would happen

:20:12.:20:16.

after Ipswich scored. Nugent thoroughly enjoyed himself in the

:20:17.:20:22.

second half. David Nugent once more for Leicester! I seem to like this

:20:23.:20:29.

part of the country, every time I come here, I do school, I wish I

:20:30.:20:34.

could play here every week. Forrest told Burnley but believe they should

:20:35.:20:40.

have done better. The referee said handball, Nottingham Forest

:20:41.:20:46.

disagreed. If it wasn't for that decision, you would agree that the

:20:47.:20:49.

rest of the game, it was only one team who deserve to win. It was

:20:50.:20:56.

given and it was scored living Nottingham Forest having to come

:20:57.:21:05.

back. Headed home! It is Simon Cox from a yard out! Derby 's blue tit

:21:06.:21:12.

might not be to everyone's taste but there was plenty of good football on

:21:13.:21:16.

show `` blue tit. I think ten, 11 passes, great cross,

:21:17.:21:34.

great Hall. All three of our teams in the top seven.

:21:35.:21:37.

In League One, new Notts County manager Shaun Derry has now seen his

:21:38.:21:41.

team lose four times in a row. The latest a defeat at Shrewsbury. Notts

:21:42.:21:44.

did have opportunities ` like this Haynes header cleared off the line `

:21:45.:21:48.

but in the end went down to Adam Reach's goal. Notts now seven points

:21:49.:21:52.

from safety at the bottom. And in League Two, what an astonishing game

:21:53.:21:55.

for Mansfield. Nine goals. Brace yourself ` here they come!

a home victory over London Irish. Two penalty tries made the

:22:52.:22:54.

difference ` the second of them coming after a mammoth 13 scrums in

:22:55.:22:57.

a row, including penalties and resets. Huge effort from the Tigers'

Nottingham have been working on an archaeological dig after finding the

Do you remember what it was like when you got down the steps and

turned right? It was pitch black and cold and damp. Memories of two

former pupils, reliving moments in shelters like this but that their

through. Time for the weather. We need this,
