BBC weather website. That is it all from the BBC's News at

:00:00.:00:00.

Here in the East Midlands: Tonight, the unused fire control centre

:00:00.:00:20.

that's costing taxpayers a fortune. This building has been closed since

:00:21.:00:28.

2007 and cost the taxpayers ?8 million in rent alone.

:00:29.:00:39.

I was drinking six litres a day. For a stand`up comedian, I couldn't

:00:40.:00:43.

stand up any more. Searching the stolen metal, police carry out spot

:00:44.:00:48.

checks on scrap dealers in Leicestershire.

:00:49.:00:53.

And, a song for Rose, written by children for a friend who died from

:00:54.:00:56.

cancer. We sat around a piano and put some

:00:57.:01:02.

stuff together and had an amazing song which expressed our feelings

:01:03.:01:04.

about Rose. Good evening, welcome to the

:01:05.:01:14.

programme. First tonight, it's emerged that an

:01:15.:01:18.

empty fire control centre is costing taxpayers in the East Midlands

:01:19.:01:24.

?5,000 a day. It's been dubbed a costly white elephant by one local

:01:25.:01:31.

MP. The building was one of nine around the country designed to

:01:32.:01:34.

replace smaller control rooms, but was scrapped 0

:01:35.:01:34.

replace smaller control rooms, but was scrapped three years ago. Now,

:01:35.:01:37.

it could be used as a regional office for police forces from across

:01:38.:01:44.

the East Midlands. Our reporter Simon Hare is at the building for us

:01:45.:01:56.

now. Good evening. We are just be a 50 at

:01:57.:02:02.

Castle Donington, on a busy industrial estate. A hive of

:02:03.:02:07.

activity everywhere except here. The building is empty. Despite that, it

:02:08.:02:12.

costs the taxpayer ?5,000 a day which adds up to ?1.8 million a

:02:13.:02:19.

year, ?1.3 million of that is rent alone. The government is signed up

:02:20.:02:26.

to continue paying that until 2032. As white elephants go, they don't

:02:27.:02:30.

come much bigger than this. It was supposed to be a fire control centre

:02:31.:02:36.

for the whole of the East Midlands. It was part of a project to replace

:02:37.:02:40.

46 smaller control rooms across the country, with nine regional control

:02:41.:02:42.

centres. It 0 country, with nine regional control

:02:43.:02:46.

centres. It began in 2004 under the Labour government. It was hoped it

:02:47.:02:51.

would provide a better coordinated response to emergencies. The

:02:52.:02:56.

building in Castle Donington was completed in 2007. But there were

:02:57.:03:00.

major problems and, with costs spiralling, the nationwide project

:03:01.:03:06.

was scrapped in 2010, having wasted ?469 million. It is an outrage that

:03:07.:03:14.

taxpayers have to work that hard to pay their tax for politicians to

:03:15.:03:19.

waste that money. Someone should be held accountable, there should be an

:03:20.:03:23.

investigation into why we have got to this. 0

:03:24.:03:24.

investigation into why we have got to this. Now, there are reports it

:03:25.:03:27.

could be used by police. But it is thought that would bring

:03:28.:03:32.

in a fraction of what it cost the government to lease it. And at a

:03:33.:03:37.

time when the fire fighters union is campaigning against cuts to the

:03:38.:03:40.

service and their terms and conditions.

:03:41.:03:45.

For what it would settle our pensions dispute, one of these would

:03:46.:03:51.

pay for it straightaway. It is galling. A sentiment shared by all

:03:52.:03:55.

taxpayers who have helped to pay for this building.

:03:56.:04:01.

To cut the ongoing Bill, could this building now be used by the police

in the East Midlands? We have seen collaboration between the different

:04:08.:04:12.

forces in the region. They are also under increasing financial pressure.

:04:13.:04:17.

Could they cut costs by sharing more backroom functions and basing them

:04:18.:04:21.

here for the whole of the East Midlands? That idea is being

:04:22.:04:25.

considered although it is said to be at a very early stage.

:04:26.:04:27.

A former Miss Nottingham finalist has been cleared of selling gun

:04:28.:04:32.

components illegally. Rebecca Draper sold 0 0

:04:33.:04:32.

components illegally. Rebecca Draper sold firing pins for lethal weapons,

:04:33.:04:38.

from her airgun shop in Radford. But, today, a judge said the law was

:04:39.:04:41.

"very uncertain", and the firearms charges were dropped. Our social

:04:42.:04:44.

affairs correspondent Jeremy Ball reports.

:04:45.:04:53.

Rebecca Draper arrived at Nottingham Crown Court today expecting to go on

:04:54.:04:57.

trial and facing the prospect of a five year prison sentence. Miss

Jaeger was accused 0 five year prison sentence. Miss

Jaeger was accused of 0 five year prison sentence. Miss

:05:00.:05:02.

Jaeger was accused of committing for firearm offences at her family's

:05:03.:05:07.

business. She was charged with selling components for this handgun

:05:08.:05:14.

and three police issue pistols without authority. They included

:05:15.:05:20.

fire pins. Rebecca Draper denied she had broken the law and when the

:05:21.:05:25.

prosecution's expert witness pulled out, the charges were dropped. It

:05:26.:05:31.

has been an emotional time for the family.

:05:32.:05:35.

The possibility of a five`year sentence, at the age of 27, it has

:05:36.:05:41.

been daunting for me. I wouldn't know how to face it. It was the

:05:42.:05:47.

arrest of one of her customers which sparked the investigation. A former

:05:48.:05:52.

clay pigeon shooting champion who is now facing prison. This pistol was

:05:53.:06:01.

found hidden in a tub of chocolate in his home. Police discovered more

than 100 live bullets. They suspected they were being supplied

uncertain, and that she needed to tread carefully `` the judge said.

Finally, relief that those charges have been listed. `` lifted.

:06:25.:06:35.

Still to come: If you're fed up with this December gloom, there's

:06:36.:06:36.

brighter news 0 this December gloom, there's

:06:37.:06:40.

brighter news on the way, from Kaye. About time too, there has been a lot

:06:41.:06:44.

of this around, but we will be emerging from the gloom tomorrow

:06:45.:06:49.

with lots of blue sky on the way. Join me for more details later in

:06:50.:06:50.

the programme. Around 80% of people in Nottingham

:06:51.:06:57.

want the sale of super`strength beers and ciders to be banned,

:06:58.:07:00.

according to the first public attitude survey in the city. Some of

:07:01.:07:03.

those backing the findings include heavy drinkers. The report, by the

:07:04.:07:07.

campaign group Nottingham Citizens, revealed a similar number of people

:07:08.:07:10.

believe street drinking is also a problem. Quentin Rayner reports.

:07:11.:07:25.

Andy Caddy has been a heavy drinker for 20 years. A former stand`up

:07:26.:07:32.

comic, it was no joke. I was drinking 0

:07:33.:07:32.

comic, it was no joke. I was drinking six litres of cider a day.

:07:33.:07:36.

For a stand`up comedian, I knew I couldn't stand up any more. Beers

:07:37.:07:43.

and cider is of more than 5.6% are classified as super`strength and are

:07:44.:07:45.

often cheaper. 0 classified as super`strength and are

:07:46.:07:48.

often cheaper. A single count may contain more alcohol than the daily

:07:49.:07:53.

safe limit for a man. Nottingham Citizens sake 76% of those surveyed

:07:54.:07:59.

want all shops to stop selling it. The people have spoken, retailers

:08:00.:08:02.

should hear what the people are saying. This is not an acceptable

:08:03.:08:07.

practice. It is targeting the most vulnerable. A hardened drinker like

:08:08.:08:14.

myself, it's not a problem, you will always find money. It is the young I

:08:15.:08:21.

am worried for. The council says 80% of city centre off licences have

:08:22.:08:25.

pledged not to sell this type of alcohol. But people have mixed views

:08:26.:08:28.

of a ban. There are too many young ones

:08:29.:08:34.

being, spending money on it, getting drunk, acting ridiculously. I don't

:08:35.:08:40.

agree. I don't think it is for the retailers to make that decision.

:08:41.:08:45.

I think somebody else has two really push the point.

:08:46.:08:48.

I don't think they should stop selling it. If they did, a lot of

:08:49.:08:52.

the people would turn to crime, because, when you have been a

:08:53.:08:58.

drinker for so long, or an addict, crime is the only thing you know. It

:08:59.:09:03.

is estimated the health care and policing associated with alcohol

:09:04.:09:07.

misuse costs each taxpayer ?170 a year.

:09:08.:09:10.

Buildings in part of Nottingham were evacuated today, after a fire at a

:09:11.:09:16.

factory. Emergency crews were called to Midland Shelving on Coventry Road

:09:17.:09:19.

in Bulwell at around 11.30am this morning. The road was sealed off,

:09:20.:09:24.

and part of the tram network was disrupted. Properties nearby were

:09:25.:09:27.

evacuated because of concerns that cylinders could explode. Fire

:09:28.:09:30.

officers are expected to be there for a number of hours tonight.

:09:31.:09:42.

At this stage of the incident, the predominant risk is from those

:09:43.:09:45.

cylinders. We have established effective cordon is in liaison with

:09:46.:09:51.

the police. We are happy public safety is not compromised, but as a

:09:52.:09:54.

precaution, we have asked the public to stay indoors.

:09:55.:09:56.

The body of a man has been found at a house in Leicester. Police were

:09:57.:10:02.

first called to Aylestone Lane in the city yesterday. The home has

:10:03.:10:06.

also been damaged by a fire, which was out when the officers arrived.

:10:07.:10:08.

Leicestershire Police, the Fire Service and a pathologist are trying

:10:09.:10:12.

to find out what caused the fire and the man's death. The area is

:10:13.:10:15.

cordoned off while investigations continue.

:10:16.:10:18.

A man from Leicestershire is to stand trial for the attempted murder

:10:19.:10:22.

of a Sikh religious leader. It's alleged that Sri Satguru Uday Sing

:10:23.:10:25.

Ji was attacked at a temple in Linden Street in Leicester in

:10:26.:10:28.

August. He was treated in hospital for head injuries. Today,

:10:29.:10:31.

27`year`old Harjit Singh Toor, from Oadby, pleaded not guilty to the

:10:32.:10:34.

charge. The trial is expected in February.

:10:35.:10:39.

Three houses had to be evacuated, after it emerged that work by

:10:40.:10:44.

builders had left them at risk of collapsing. Tonnes of soil had been

:10:45.:10:47.

removed from beneath the foundations of one of the terraced properties on

:10:48.:10:51.

Violet Street in the Normanton area of Derby. The two neighbouring

:10:52.:10:54.

houses were also declared unsafe. The hole is now being filled with

:10:55.:10:56.

concrete. Officials say householders or landlords should seek advice when

:10:57.:10:58.

carrying out similar work. Before you start your grand design,

:10:59.:11:15.

come and talk to the local authority, come and get some advice

:11:16.:11:20.

about whether or not you're building requires building regulation

:11:21.:11:24.

approval. And get the advice as to whether what you are planning to do

:11:25.:11:25.

is going to be safe. Police in Leicestershire are warning

:11:26.:11:30.

scrap metal dealers they could face thousands of pounds in fines if

:11:31.:11:33.

they're caught trading illegally. Under new laws, scrap metal can't be

:11:34.:11:37.

bought with cash, and dealers must have a licence. Our reporter Eleanor

:11:38.:11:41.

Garnier has been out with the police, as they conducted spot

:11:42.:11:43.

checks. A surprise visit by Leicestershire

:11:44.:11:52.

Police, on the hunt for stolen metal, and signs of illegal dealing.

:11:53.:11:58.

Just check there is a record of the metal coming in, and a record of it

:11:59.:12:04.

going out. So it can be traced. Copper piping and car wheels, even

:12:05.:12:09.

kitchen sinks, it is all big business for scrap metal merchants,

:12:10.:12:14.

but it is costing the rest of us. The government says metal theft

:12:15.:12:20.

costs the UK economy ?220 million a year. Through disrupted train

:12:21.:12:26.

services, desecrated war memorials, damaged church roofs. Now, a new law

:12:27.:12:29.

has been brought in to help police cut down on the crime. It has helped

:12:30.:12:34.

the police dramatically, most dealers are complying with

:12:35.:12:38.

legislation. Photographic ID is required. And tracing where the

:12:39.:12:46.

money has come from and going to. It has eradicated a good percentage of

:12:47.:12:54.

the theft we were having. The theft of metal is slowing business up. We

:12:55.:12:57.

don't get so many people in because if they don't have ID we have to

:12:58.:13:01.

turn them away. Police officers claim domestic metal theft is down

:13:02.:13:06.

80% in Hinckley since the new law came in.

:13:07.:13:08.

A charity which supports air ambulance services in the East

:13:09.:13:12.

Midlands has issued a warning about fraudsters. Hoax leaflets like this

:13:13.:13:16.

one are being sent out, asking for donations of clothing. But they

:13:17.:13:21.

don't include a registered charity number or proper contact details.

:13:22.:13:24.

The company originally responsible for the bogus leaflets was shut down

:13:25.:13:27.

and prosecuted more than two years ago.

:13:28.:13:31.

Fire fighters had to use breathing apparatus to tackle a fire in

:13:32.:13:36.

Leicester this afternoon. The Fire Service were called to a shop on

:13:37.:13:39.

Abbey Park Road. There were no injuries, but the gas and

:13:40.:13:42.

electricity supplies were disconnected as a precaution. The

:13:43.:13:45.

roads in the area are now back open this evening.

:13:46.:13:47.

This year's Download music event has been named the country's Best Major

:13:48.:13:52.

Festival. The three`day event at Castle Donington beat off

:13:53.:13:54.

competition from Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, at the UK

:13:55.:13:59.

Festival Awards. Iron Maiden was one of the headline acts this year. The

:14:00.:14:04.

veteran band were back in the East Midlands 25 years after their last

:14:05.:14:05.

appearance at Donington. More men and women die from it than

:14:06.:14:11.

any 0 More men and women die from it than

:14:12.:14:13.

any other cancer. 0 More men and women die from it than

:14:14.:14:15.

any other cancer. And yet, with early diagnosis and treatment, more

:14:16.:14:19.

people would survive. One expert in Nottingham is convinced there's now

:14:20.:14:22.

a need to bring in a national screening programme for lung cancer.

:14:23.:14:27.

Dr David Baldwin, a lung cancer specialist, is campaigning for

:14:28.:14:30.

targeted screening of those most at risk, typically in their sixties and

:14:31.:14:36.

seventies. He pulled together fresh evidence to present to the decision

:14:37.:14:42.

makers in the new year. Our health correspondent Rob Sissons reports.

:14:43.:14:49.

A lung cancer tumour, sadly detected too late. That is often the problem.

:14:50.:14:58.

Could one solution be targeted mass screening? This expert argues, yes,

:14:59.:15:06.

in the Lancet. Three quarters of our people who come to our clinics have

:15:07.:15:10.

cancer which is unfortunately incurable. If you catch it early,

:15:11.:15:15.

you can take it up with surgery and people can be cured. Lung cancer is

:15:16.:15:19.

on the increase with 3000 new cases across the region every year. With

:15:20.:15:25.

2400 deaths annually, it is the biggest cancer killer.

:15:26.:15:31.

We think that CT scans are the way forward for people with high risk.

:15:32.:15:36.

CT scans are not cheap. Then there is the criticism smokers have

:15:37.:15:41.

brought it on themselves. But Doctor Baldwin has sympathy. People get

:15:42.:15:44.

addicted to smoking at an early stage.

:15:45.:15:49.

The vast majority of people intent `` in our clinics are former

:15:50.:15:56.

smokers. Surely's lung cancer was discovered when she was being

:15:57.:15:58.

investigated for a stomach complaint.

:15:59.:16:02.

If I hadn't had to go to the hospital for this other complaint,

:16:03.:16:06.

it would never have been spotted. I never felt ill with my chest. If it

:16:07.:16:12.

is voluntary screening, you don't have to go. Like many of her

:16:13.:16:18.

generation, she had smoked 50 years, so `` 50 years.

:16:19.:16:26.

This is a giant pair of inflatable lungs, the latest trick at the

:16:27.:16:30.

Kingsmill hospital to raise awareness of lung cancer. One of the

:16:31.:16:33.

biggest health challenges of our age.

:16:34.:16:35.

There are screening programmes for breast, bowel and cervical cancer.

:16:36.:16:40.

Will lung cancer be added to the list?

:16:41.:16:47.

The short answer is, one day, maybe. The committee that evaluates

:16:48.:16:51.

all the evidence looks at the evidence and is led by that. It is

:16:52.:16:56.

waiting for the results of a pilot study in Liverpool 0

:16:57.:16:59.

waiting for the results of a pilot study in Liverpool which is already

:17:00.:17:03.

doing CT scans and looking as it whether it improves long`term

:17:04.:17:06.

survival. The results are not until 2015.

:17:07.:17:09.

What are the symptoms the NHS urges people to look out for?

:17:10.:17:14.

The main symptom they always go on about is a persistent cough. If you

:17:15.:17:18.

have had a cough which has lasted more than three weeks, the advice is

:17:19.:17:23.

to get it checked out. Who knows, it could be something more sinister

:17:24.:17:27.

than a virus or common cold. The other thing to say is, a lot of

:17:28.:17:33.

other symptoms, things like breathlessness, unexpected weight

:17:34.:17:37.

loss. In the early stages, there can be no symptoms and no pain.

:17:38.:17:41.

It's something many of us don't like to think about, what happens to us

:17:42.:17:47.

when we die? As thousands of us are choosing to be buried, across the

:17:48.:17:51.

region there's only so much space left in our graveyards. In

:17:52.:17:54.

Leicester, the city council has launched a consultation so, in the

:17:55.:17:58.

long term, they can meet the demand for burial space. Helen Astle

:17:59.:18:07.

reports. Already, the final resting place for

:18:08.:18:12.

thousands of people, with new graves being dug every day. This is the new

:18:13.:18:16.

extension which is likely to be filled within the next 25 years.

:18:17.:18:22.

Then what? How long do people want the exclusive use of a grave for? At

:18:23.:18:28.

the moment it is 99 years and there is a cost. We want to give more

:18:29.:18:32.

affordable options for burial which could involve a shorter period. One

:18:33.:18:37.

proposal in Leicester is people have a 30 year lease on a burial starts

:18:38.:18:45.

`` site. This means the plot could then be reused. It is wrong, it

:18:46.:18:51.

should be how it is now. I know families who have used the same

:18:52.:18:56.

place. I don't think it is a good idea. You pay for a plot to put your

:18:57.:19:02.

own family there, then for somebody else to go, it is wrong.

:19:03.:19:09.

It is wrong, that is why my Gran is at a natural burial ground. Almost

:19:10.:19:14.

half of cemeteries could run out of space in 20 years. In Nottingham, it

:19:15.:19:18.

is estimated there could be 70 years of space. 0

:19:19.:19:22.

is estimated there could be 70 years of space. As our city graveyards

:19:23.:19:26.

full up, what is the alternative? Here, there is a natural burial

:19:27.:19:32.

site. No headstones, plenty of room to expand, and increasingly popular.

:19:33.:19:38.

We only did 25 in the first year. Now it is 150. It has increased year

:19:39.:19:46.

on year. Leicester City Council's

:19:47.:19:50.

consultation finishes in the New Year. It says we may not like

:19:51.:19:53.

talking about burials but with a growing population we need to, so

:19:54.:19:56.

ultimately we can all be at peace. Time now for the sport.

:19:57.:20:05.

Leicester City look to extend their lead at the top of the Championship

:20:06.:20:08.

table tonight, as they travel to Sheffield Wednesday. The Foxes are

:20:09.:20:11.

three points clear, and the team were in great spirits as they left

:20:12.:20:15.

the King Power Stadium for Yorkshire earlier today. Natalie Jackson

:20:16.:20:21.

reports. Ahead of this Sheffield Wednesday

:20:22.:20:26.

game, this team of brimming with confidence. Why not? They have won

:20:27.:20:32.

There are far too many occasions managers lose their jobs when maybe

it is the first wobble. When you are involved in management, it can be

quite a lonely job from time to time. You have to get on with it.

Whittle was ten, and a pupil at Nottingham Girls High School. She

all about their song. You told me to live, you told me to

a daughter who was always happy, bright with a zest for life.

:24:28.:24:35.

She was very jolly all the time when I visited her in hospital. We wrote

:24:36.:24:39.

a song about her because she was always really musical. She liked the

music. We split up into groups, violins,

clarinets, flutes. In the end we formed it together and maybe music

for the song. We sat around a piano and put stuff

together. By the end of the day we had an amazing song to express our
