:00:53.:01:03.

Welcome to the programme. Fierce winds and driving rain have caused

:01:04.:01:07.

major disruption throughout the East Midlands. In north Nottinghamshire,

:01:08.:01:13.

a man was killed when he was struck by a falling tree. Thousands of

:01:14.:01:17.

homes are without power this evening and traffic on the M1 was brought to

:01:18.:01:21.

a standstill after a number of lorries were blown over. Many

country parks and tourist attractions were closed for safety

:01:45.:01:48.

risk of falling trees. As you mentioned, there have been major

:01:49.:01:52.

travel disruptions and power cuts as gusts of up to 60 mph swept through

:01:53.:01:58.

our region. Several trees fell around the area as the winds peaked

down, bang. This tree behind us came crashing down with the wind, is just

when we had widespread gusts of between 60 and 70 mph. I have been

grooming young girls in Derby, often cruising around the city, looking

:06:10.:06:14.

for vulnerable youngsters. I wish I could say that isn't the same

:06:15.:06:19.

situation now, but my working reality is I know it happened last

:06:20.:06:22.

week and will potentially happen again this week. The council is

:06:23.:06:28.

currently asking for views on how it should cut its budget. There will

The American civil rights activist Jesse Jackson has been paying

tribute 0 Jesse Jackson has been paying

tribute to a young football coach who was stabbed to death in the

:07:18.:07:22.

street in Leicester. The world renowned campaigner

:07:23.:07:24.

planted a tree at Nirvana Football Club in memory of Antoin Akpom. The

:07:25.:07:30.

20`year old father had been a player and coach there before he died.

:07:31.:07:37.

Eleanor Garnier reports. It is a tribute to a local young man, but it

:07:38.:07:43.

carries a message to the world. The international civil rights

:07:44.:07:46.

campaigner Jesse Jackson turned an act of remembrance into a global

:07:47.:07:49.

call for peace and an end to violence. 20`year`old Antoin Akpom

:08:02.:08:06.

young people here today whose hearts are still heavy yet they are coming

:08:22.:08:25.

all the way from America, in honour of his name. Not a lot of people

:08:26.:08:31.

could say that. That just shows the work that Antoin put in. This isn't

:08:32.:08:37.

the first on the Reverend Jesse Jackson has been to Leicester. A

:08:38.:08:40.

couple of years ago he was given an honorary degree from the Montfort

:08:41.:08:47.

University. Earlier today he was making his mark on another local

:08:48.:08:52.

spot. The new Jesse Jackson Park was opened in front of hundreds of

:08:53.:09:03.

schoolchildren. Back at nirvana FC, Jesse Jackson's daughter added her

:09:04.:09:08.

voice to the tributes to 20`year`old Antoin.

:09:09.:09:15.

The family of a Leicestershire woman who was shot dead are asking anyone

:09:16.:09:18.

with information about her death to come forward. 30`year old Hayley

:09:19.:09:23.

Pointon died from a single gunshot wound at a house at Hinckley in

:09:24.:09:27.

February. Her family say bringing the killer to justice would ease

:09:28.:09:31.

their pain. Police have so far arrested 21 people as part of their

:09:32.:09:35.

murder inquiry. Nine are on bail. So far no one's been charged.

:09:36.:09:41.

The new chair of Nottingham's biggest hospital trust says smoking

:09:42.:09:46.

may be allowed in controlled areas. The health regulator NICE has said

:09:47.:09:49.

that lighting up should be banned in all hospital premises. There've been

:09:50.:09:53.

particular problems in Nottingham at the Queens Medical Centre and at the

:09:54.:09:58.

Maternity Unit at the City Hospital. The Trust's new chair Louise Scull

:09:59.:10:06.

says a compromise may be possible. Derby City Council wants to bring in

:10:07.:10:09.

attacks on supermarkets to help deal with budget cuts. It says it's

:10:10.:10:14.

hoping to spearhead an national campaign. The council says taxing

:10:15.:10:19.

large stalls could bring in around 1 million per year locally. They say

:10:20.:10:25.

they are planning to put pressure on Westminster. The tax already exists

:10:26.:10:29.

in Northern Ireland and Scotland. Next, dementia. It'll be the subject

:10:30.:10:33.

under discussion next week at a special G8 summit in London. That's

:10:34.:10:37.

because international experts forecast that dementia cases will

:10:38.:10:42.

triple worldwide by 2050. But what about closer to home? Well, in our

:10:43.:10:46.

part 0 0 about closer to home? Well, in our

:10:47.:10:48.

part of the world diagnosis rates vary depending on where you live.

:10:49.:10:52.

Campaigners say as well as being under`diagnosed dementia is under

:10:53.:10:56.

researched and often misunderstood. Our Health Correspondent Rob Sissons

:10:57.:11:05.

reports. It's about giving people an

:11:06.:11:10.

understanding of dementia. The future of dementia care started.

:11:11.:11:14.

These volunteers have not diagnosed with it but are willing to become

:11:15.:11:18.

what is called dementia friends, supporting patients and families. We

:11:19.:11:25.

want to encourage numbers of the general public just to become aware

:11:26.:11:28.

of dementia, how it might feel to have dementia. The picture of

:11:29.:11:38.

diagnosis rates is varied. The Nottingham West commissioning group

:11:39.:11:39.

has the highest rate. I think as soon as you might have a

:11:40.:11:53.

possibility, so you can organise your life and get them sorted. They

:11:54.:11:58.

are in England's top ten in Nottingham West for picking up

:11:59.:12:03.

cases. This woman, it is one of the best phase. I have seen too many

:12:04.:12:09.

people just lose their marbles, lose all their pressure in living and

:12:10.:12:12.

being quite incapable of being able to look after themselves. I don't

:12:13.:12:18.

want that to happen to me. I would rather jump off a cliff. Front line

:12:19.:12:23.

GPs say both they and 0 rather jump off a cliff. Front line

:12:24.:12:25.

GPs say both they and thus need to get better at spotting the symptoms.

:12:26.:12:29.

Things like taking medication can become more difficult, more context

:12:30.:12:34.

tasks like preparing a meal, they might be repeating themselves quite

:12:35.:12:38.

frequently asking the same question repeatedly. Dementia is a huge

busy. `` plentiful stop ``. The scaffolding has been up for so

:13:01.:13:04.

long, you might have forgotten what Nottingham station looks like, and

:13:05.:13:06.

the ?50 million redevelopment is still some way off from being

:13:07.:13:10.

completed. It's not to be confused with the recent resignalling work

:13:11.:13:13.

which closed the station for five weeks. This is a much longer`term

:13:14.:13:16.

project which we're promised will establish the station as the Gateway

:13:17.:13:19.

to Nottingham. Quentin Rayner has been to see how things are taking

:13:20.:13:22.

shape. Gone are the days when the front of the station was full of

:13:23.:13:24.

throbbing taxis, open to the elements. From next spring it will

:13:25.:13:29.

be covered, pedestrianised and hoping to attract more than just

:13:30.:13:35.

travellers. We are trying to create a destination station, like we have

:13:36.:13:39.

in St Pancras, people can shop, catch a train wherever they are

:13:40.:13:46.

going. The 6.5 million passengers who use the station every year will

:13:47.:13:49.

also enjoy a new ticket office and refurbished platforms. This new

:13:50.:13:54.

station is all about creating an integrated hub. In future you will

:13:55.:13:58.

be able to park your car in the multistorey car park, audit of a

tram here, and then through this brand`new concourse, 0

travel down into the main station to catch a train. ?50 million as part

:14:07.:14:14.

of a wider investment here, truly well spent. People will see where

:14:15.:14:17.

the money has gone and what the advantages of the work we're doing

:14:18.:14:22.

here are. As a listed building, much has to be preserved. When a

:14:23.:14:25.

suspended ceiling was removed in a cafe, early 20th`century friezes of

:14:26.:14:31.

cherubs chasing each other were revealed. Maintaining the heritage

:14:32.:14:37.

as important as it adds to the character of the station, taking

:14:38.:14:43.

anything away would devalue it. This is the refurbished booking hall

:14:44.:14:46.

which has been restored to its former glory. The original stonework

:14:47.:14:50.

and tiles have been restored by the same Nottingham company that appear

:14:51.:14:55.

in the first place in 1903. The new concourses will be opened by next

:14:56.:14:58.

April but you will have to wait another year before the hub is fully

:14:59.:15:06.

operational. It does look fabulous. Still to come ` the little girl

and it's not until you start probing a way that you realise how

:16:42.:16:44.

vulnerable they are. How significant is the foundry? Fantastically so,

:16:45.:16:52.

it's unique, a purpose`built foundry that is still in use, after 150

years. You can't see this anywhere else. How did it get into this

McLaren's march up the table is gathering pace. Middlesbrough were

trying to put a stop to it but they were up against a Rams team in form.

been a key part of the team's success and was today among four

:20:58.:21:01.

players in the mix for the Championship player of the month

:21:02.:21:02.

award. Leicester City winger Lloyd Dyer has

:21:03.:21:06.

also been nominated for the same award. Nigel Pearson has too been

:21:07.:21:09.

short listed too for manager of the month. The old cliche is the award

:21:10.:21:13.

is often a curse, so not everyone wants Nigel to win it. I don't get

:21:14.:21:25.

why we are still doing well! But obviously, what we do on the pitch,

:21:26.:21:27.

for him 0 obviously, what we do on the pitch,

:21:28.:21:33.

for him and for us, it's for him. Speaking to both the league is

:21:34.:21:35.

obviously why he has been nominated and deserves it. Elsewhere,

:21:36.:21:42.

Leicester Tigers are gearing up for two Games that could define their

:21:43.:21:44.

season. They play Montpelier twice in a daze. The result will decide

:21:45.:21:50.

whether they have any hope of going through to the European knockout

:21:51.:21:55.

stages. The first of those matches on Sunday is at home, that could be

:21:56.:21:56.

crucial. The crowd will be a massive

:21:57.:22:09.

influence on what goes on. The attitude of how the friend turn up

:22:10.:22:12.

and want to play, or don't, will be a massive impact on the result ``

:22:13.:22:22.

the French turn up. We will put them into our poky dressing room, only

:22:23.:22:26.

about four of them will probably fit in there! Hopefully, we will show

:22:27.:22:32.

them how English proficient rugby is played. `` premiership rugby.

:22:33.:22:42.

Hopefully we will combat their physicality with our relentlessness.

:22:43.:22:49.

In France, I think they grind you out a bit more. You think you have

:22:50.:22:54.

broken the back of it after 50 minutes, the neighbouring three or

:22:55.:22:59.

four players on to keep the physical battle going. We're not looking too

:23:00.:23:06.

far ahead, we have just got to get the win here. I think we're good

:23:07.:23:11.

enough to win home and away, I don't see why we can't. These two Games

:23:12.:23:17.

will be the deciding factors in finishing top or not. We probably

:23:18.:23:21.

need to have at least five points out of the two Games if not more.

:23:22.:23:30.

You can hear how they get on on the radio. Not to be mist!

:23:31.:23:42.

A little girl from Nottinghamshire had a big task on her hands this

:23:43.:23:47.

evening. Iris Jaworski, who's two, and suffers from muscular dystrophy,

:23:48.:23:50.

was asked to switch on Southwell's Xmas lights. Her family say they're

:23:51.:23:54.

delighted that she's been asked to do the honours and hope the event

:23:55.:23:58.

will also help raise money for research into her condition.

:23:59.:24:04.

Angelina Socci reports. It's an exciting day for Iris, not only is

:24:05.:24:08.

she responsible for decorating this Christmas tree at her home, she also

:24:09.:24:12.

has another big job ahead of her. She has been asked to switch on the

:24:13.:24:19.

town's Christmas lights. RS is a very local little girl, we are

:24:20.:24:21.

always in the town, people have got to know her and her story, I think

:24:22.:24:30.

it has really touched them. She is a very endearing little girl, and I

:24:31.:24:33.

think they felt it would be a lovely thing to do. Iris was diagnosed with

:24:34.:24:40.

muscular dystrophy a year ago. Her family hope that as was bringing the

:24:41.:24:44.

community together, this will help raise vital funds for charity. The

:24:45.:24:49.

funds will go to two special charities, you must muscular

:24:50.:24:55.

dystrophy campaign, there is real hope there will be a cure. The other

:24:56.:24:58.

one is the school 0 hope there will be a cure. The other

:24:59.:25:04.

one is the school for parents, a fantastic organisation who have

:25:05.:25:06.

helped them immensely over the six to eight months. Not to be out

:25:07.:25:11.

done, her big sister will also be picking the raffle tickets tonight.

:25:12.:25:16.

Says it is an important time for the whole family. It's a lovely,

:25:17.:25:21.

positive thing, that's how we live our lives, planning for the worst

:25:22.:25:25.

but hoping for the best full stop that's what we will continue to do.

:25:26.:25:31.

The community is now hoping that tonight 's event will be just a

:25:32.:25:38.

sparkly as her new shoes. I'm sure it will be. She will be doing the

:25:39.:25:42.

honours in about five minutes! Time for the weather.

:25:43.:25:48.

We really have had a gusty day today, the winds picked up

:25:49.:25:54.

lunchtime, we are now focusing our attention on the storm surge across

:25:55.:25:58.

the Lincolnshire coast. If you live or work out that way, here is the

:25:59.:26:04.

first line number. It was this Atlantic storm which started to

:26:05.:26:09.

track east during the early hours of this morning. The I suppose ``

:26:10.:26:18.

isobars tightened, behind that, the introduction of much colder air. The

:26:19.:26:24.

good news is things will be calmer tomorrow, much lighter winds, but

:26:25.:26:27.

you will notice it feeling really quite chilly. With that in mind and

:26:28.:26:33.

a few showers around, we have a Met Office warning in force with a risk

:26:34.:26:40.

of ice. Be careful if you are heading out on the roads. Generally

:26:41.:26:44.

clear skies at the moment, more cloud towards the West. A few

:26:45.:26:48.

showers moving south as we go through the night stop they could be

:26:49.:26:53.

wintry across higher ground but it then gets drier towards the morning

:26:54.:26:56.

with the good swathes of blue, which means a widespread frost. If you

:26:57.:27:04.

wake up with the sunshine, the best of it is across the East throughout

:27:05.:27:09.

the day, we start to see more cloud across the West, one or two showers

:27:10.:27:12.

possible into the Derbyshire Peak District. On the whole, calmer day,

:27:13.:27:19.

lighter winds, a good deal of dry weather but look at those

:27:20.:27:24.

temperatures. Very cold tomorrow. A quick look at the outlook: Not

:27:25.:27:30.

feeling too bad into the new week. Positively balmy by the new week!

:27:31.:27:42.

Lates news later. See you then full
