The sun shall never set on so glorious a human

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:12.

Tonight: A global figure who touched our lives.

:00:13.:00:19.

The day after his death, we reflect on this region's surprising

:00:20.:00:23.

connections with Nelson Mandela. We will do better, so says the new

:00:24.:00:28.

boss of our under fire ambulance service.

:00:29.:00:31.

Staff are said to me, we don't want to be in this position but in a

:00:32.:00:35.

stronger place, back to being an organisation we can be proud of. The

:00:36.:00:41.

man who paid out hundreds for a photo of an Xbox on eBay.

:00:42.:00:49.

I was expecting it to be more bulky, it was a bit slim. I was conned out

:00:50.:00:53.

of my money. Look who is on the programme

:00:54.:01:03.

tonight. Sorry, yes! He's good, isn't he!

:01:04.:01:15.

. Good evening. Welcome to Friday's programme.

:01:16.:01:20.

The influence of Nelson Mandela as a world figure reaches far and wide.

:01:21.:01:27.

Today, the day after his death, it turns out that people in this region

:01:28.:01:31.

have the most 0 turns out that people in this region

:01:32.:01:33.

have the most surprising connections with a man who spent his life

:01:34.:01:36.

fighting racism. Countless others who never met him have been deeply

:01:37.:01:39.

marked by Mandela's life, even though it was lived thousands of

:01:40.:01:41.

miles away. Eleanor Garnier reports.

:01:42.:01:48.

Welcome to Leicester's Nelson Mandela Park. A city that celebrates

:01:49.:01:54.

diversity and one where the life and work of Mr Mandela, a freedom

:01:55.:01:59.

fighter, prisoner, turned president, is extremely significant.

:02:00.:02:03.

I have been talking to one student here from South Africa. She told me

:02:04.:02:08.

how important he is to her and her country.

:02:09.:02:14.

He opened so many doors for even our parents who were unable to work the

:02:15.:02:18.

jobs they wanted to work during apartheid. He has given us hope. He

:02:19.:02:24.

has given us a future. We look forward to doing great things as

:02:25.:02:27.

well. It was that gift of hope that

:02:28.:02:31.

inspired Shirley, a political exile who left South Africa in 1968, and

:02:32.:02:36.

now lives in Derby. I feel ashamed of myself because I

:02:37.:02:41.

had a lot of anger and bitterness because I had to give up my country.

:02:42.:02:47.

But, the more I got to know about Mandela, the more I thought about

:02:48.:02:53.

it, I was ashamed of myself. I was with the American civil rights

:02:54.:02:56.

activist Jesse Jackson yesterday as he visited Leicester. We spoke about

:02:57.:03:02.

Mr Mandela in the hours before he died. The genius of Mandela, 27

:03:03.:03:08.

years in jail, he chose reconciliation over retribution.

:03:09.:03:12.

Reconciliation over retribution, followed by hope, not fear. In

:03:13.:03:21.

1995, but then not in South MP Alan Simpson met Mr Mandela in South

:03:22.:03:27.

Africa. He said, I'm terribly sorry for being delayed. I've been saying

:03:28.:03:31.

goodbye to the Pope. You felt, fair enough. He made us feel the

:03:32.:03:40.

shortcomings were from him. But actually his was the gift of just

:03:41.:03:45.

being in the room. Books of condolence have been opened in

:03:46.:03:50.

Leicester, Nottingham and Derby. Flags across the region are flying

:03:51.:03:54.

at half`mast. People in the East Midlands are joining the rest of the

:03:55.:03:59.

world in marking the death of men `` Nelson Mandela.

:04:00.:04:03.

Next tonight: A service in turmoil? Or a victim of unfair public and

:04:04.:04:11.

media criticism? East Midlands Ambulance Service is rarely out of

:04:12.:04:15.

the headlines. Its ability to respond to cases in a timely way has

:04:16.:04:19.

been under particular scrutiny. Tonight, we're asking the woman in

:04:20.:04:23.

charge just what's going on with our ambulance service. Is it in crisis?

:04:24.:04:29.

But first, here's our health correspondent Rob Sissons, with some

:04:30.:04:36.

of the hard facts about EMAS. East Midlands ambulances are

:04:37.:04:39.

supposed to get to 95% of all life`threatening emergencies within

:04:40.:04:42.

19 minutes. But EMAS missed this target this year by more than 3%.

:04:43.:04:45.

Instead of 95% of cases, EMAS managed only 91.8%. It led to the

:04:46.:04:51.

service's third fine in as many years for missing response targets.

:04:52.:04:55.

On top of that, a separate report by the Care Quality Commission found

:04:56.:04:58.

EMAS had failed to meet three CQC standards, on its care of people who

:04:59.:05:01.

use the service, its staffing, and its training and support. At the

:05:02.:05:07.

time, the service insisted it was on top of the issues, and was

:05:08.:05:10.

improving. But only last month, senior management were summoned to a

:05:11.:05:13.

meeting with NHS England about, again, poor response times. And also

:05:14.:05:23.

this time, patient safety. There'd even been a day when EMAS was unable

:05:24.:05:27.

to handle even the most urgent 999 calls. Let alone those that didn't

:05:28.:05:32.

threaten life. Bradley Watson was playing Sunday

:05:33.:05:35.

football last month in Nottingham when a tackle left him facedown on

:05:36.:05:39.

the ground with a broken leg. What he did not realise what he would be

:05:40.:05:42.

left there for hours before ambulance crew Majak Daw arrived. It

:05:43.:05:50.

was agony, it felt like forever. The pitch was soaking wet, I was worried

:05:51.:05:55.

about myself getting hypothermia. When it came to two hours, I was

:05:56.:06:03.

getting agitated. Two hours and 49 minutes, though, that is not

:06:04.:06:07.

acceptable. The operation the surgeon carried out was three hours.

:06:08.:06:14.

To repair his leg. I understand there are more

:06:15.:06:18.

life`threatening situations. But I don't want anybody to go through

:06:19.:06:21.

pain that that that that amount of time. It was horrendous.

:06:22.:06:24.

Today, I met with Sue Noyes who's in charge of EMAS. 0

:06:25.:06:26.

Today, I met with Sue Noyes who's in charge of EMAS. I asked her what she

:06:27.:06:32.

made of Bradley's case? I can recognise from a patient point

:06:33.:06:37.

of view that isn't an acceptable level of service. I offer my

:06:38.:06:40.

apologies. We keep hearing about these cases.

:06:41.:06:44.

One thing within our quality improvement programme is coming yes,

:06:45.:06:50.

it's about response times, and clinical safety. On a personal

:06:51.:06:56.

basis, I hear and I respond to every complaint we receive. We hear

:06:57.:07:00.

patients and their stories, but we are taking direct action. From next

:07:01.:07:05.

week, we will have a GP within our control centre, and a consultant

:07:06.:07:09.

paramedic in the control centre, to make sure we are providing the right

:07:10.:07:15.

resource to the right incident. And to watch how, when people are not

:07:16.:07:20.

receiving an emergency ambulance, if their situation is deteriorating

:07:21.:07:24.

over a length of time, we can pick that up and respond sooner. How does

:07:25.:07:31.

it feel to be in charge of one of the worst performing trusts in the

:07:32.:07:33.

country? I am enjoying the challenge but I recognise fully that EMAS

:07:34.:07:42.

macro needs rejuvenating. `` EMAS need rejuvenating. People in the

:07:43.:07:46.

East Midlands pay their taxes. When will they get the quality service

:07:47.:07:50.

they want? We are working on a quality improvement programme on

:07:51.:07:56.

better patient care, and we are planning to deliver on our response

:07:57.:08:00.

targets by the end of next quarter, March. And in the meantime to

:08:01.:08:06.

improve. That is our focus. Are you still committed to the controversial

:08:07.:08:12.

sell`off of ambulance stations? That was part of a previous strategy. We

:08:13.:08:18.

have put a short pause on that because we need to concentrate on

:08:19.:08:22.

improving response times. We have winter coming up as well.

:08:23.:08:27.

We'll be updating you on the performance of the Ambulance Service

:08:28.:08:31.

over the coming months. A man who groomed teenage girls for

:08:32.:08:35.

sex over the internet has been jailed for ten years, and condemned

:08:36.:08:39.

as a predator. Ian Sluggett, from Whetstone in Leicestershire,

:08:40.:08:44.

admitted 23 charges. Sluggett befriended the girls on social media

:08:45.:08:47.

sites. He also forced some, as young as 13, to send him explicit photos

:08:48.:08:51.

by threatening them. Quentin Rayner reports.

:08:52.:08:59.

Using several pseudonyms, 40`year`old Ian Sluggett posed as a

:09:00.:09:06.

16`year`old, sending friend requests and making contact with 3000 teenage

:09:07.:09:12.

girls on Facebook. He convinced to 15`year`olds to meet up and have sex

:09:13.:09:16.

with him several times in his van. He demanded explicit photos from

:09:17.:09:22.

313`year`olds by using threats. Sluggett made 5000 calls to

:09:23.:09:27.

113`year`old on his phone. He threatened another that if she went

:09:28.:09:30.

to the police, her life would be over and he would send her naked

:09:31.:09:36.

photos to her friends. He was clearly an organised person, he made

:09:37.:09:40.

concerted efforts to contact young girls using false information, in a

:09:41.:09:46.

very organised manner. That does concern us. The judge told the

:09:47.:09:51.

father of three who is separated from his wife that he is a predator

:09:52.:09:56.

who had cynically deceived and exploited young girls with no

:09:57.:10:00.

concern for the damage he caused. The judge said the case highlighted

:10:01.:10:04.

dangers posed by the misuse of the Internet, and the utter folly of

:10:05.:10:09.

some young people and their attitude towards it. My concern is that there

:10:10.:10:15.

are several thousand contacts on his phone, Facebook account and Skype

:10:16.:10:19.

account. My concern is there are potentially other victims who we

:10:20.:10:24.

would like to speak to. The Internet grooming only came to light because

:10:25.:10:27.

one victim was overheard by a teacher talking about being

:10:28.:10:31.

blackmailed. Sluggett was sentenced to ten years and is said to have

:10:32.:10:32.

been disowned by his family. Still to come: In sport, Colin

:10:33.:10:40.

reflects on the rise and rise of Derby County.

:10:41.:10:48.

We are at Derby County surrounded by these fans enjoying the fact that

:10:49.:10:51.

club is on a roll. And, Hi`de`Hoff! Anne schmoozes the

:10:52.:10:59.

stars of Peter Pan, a panto that's sure to get you hooked.

:11:00.:11:04.

People in Lincolnshire, who were evacuated from their homes last

:11:05.:11:07.

night due to 0 evacuated from their homes last

:11:08.:11:09.

night due to flooding, are facing a second night in temporary

:11:10.:11:13.

accommodation. Flood waters swept through the town of Boston, after

:11:14.:11:17.

yesterday's storm. More than 200 people had to spend the night at an

:11:18.:11:21.

army barracks and a holiday camp just outside Grantham. The county

:11:22.:11:24.

council says a number of them are facing a second night there, as

:11:25.:11:26.

they're still unable to return home. A predatory rapist who attacked

:11:27.:11:32.

seven women, six of them in one night, has been jailed for life.

:11:33.:11:36.

Harbinder Khatkar, from Derby, was described by the judge as a highly

:11:37.:11:40.

dangerous man who, if at liberty, would undoubtedly attack women

:11:41.:11:44.

again. Khatkar, who terrorised six victims in the Normanton area of

:11:45.:11:47.

Derby this year, had also subjected a seventh woman to a similar ordeal

:11:48.:11:51.

two years before. The police say all the victims have been severely

:11:52.:11:53.

traumatised. In court, we heard a statement from

:11:54.:12:10.

one victim. She said how prior to the effect she had been a confident

:12:11.:12:14.

person bringing up her children in a stable home in Derby. Her life has

:12:15.:12:19.

been shattered, she has lost all her confidence. She fears going out

:12:20.:12:23.

alone, she fears a knock at the door, always looking behind her.

:12:24.:12:28.

Hopefully this sentence will be the beginning of her rebuilding her

:12:29.:12:29.

life. The funerals have taken place of a

:12:30.:12:34.

mother and her two children who were killed in a house fire in north

:12:35.:12:38.

Derbyshire. Josie Leyton and her sons Tyler and Jordan died when the

:12:39.:12:41.

property caught fire in the village of North Wingfield last month.

:12:42.:12:44.

Josie's friend Claire James also died. Her funeral was held on

:12:45.:12:46.

Wednesday. A multi`vehicle pile`up caused big

:12:47.:12:51.

delays on the M1 this afternoon. One person was taken to hospital

:12:52.:12:53.

following an accident involving as many as 13 vehicles. Elsewhere this

:12:54.:12:56.

morning, two lorries were involved in a crash on the A38 outside Derby.

:12:57.:13:01.

One of them fell on a car. It took four hours to clear the road. No one

:13:02.:13:03.

there was hurt. Next, a warning to consumers about

:13:04.:13:12.

ordering goods over the internet, from a man who thought he'd bought

:13:13.:13:16.

an Xbox, but only got a photo of one instead. Peter Clatworthy from

:13:17.:13:19.

Nottingham paid more than ?450 for what he believed was a gaming

:13:20.:13:22.

console, even though the advert on eBay actually didn't promise that.

:13:23.:13:25.

Luckily for Peter, he's now got a refund. Mike O'Sullivan reports.

:13:26.:13:38.

He has learned a harsh lesson and now he wants others to beware. Peter

:13:39.:13:45.

Clatworthy from Nottingham is warning people to check the fine

:13:46.:13:51.

print when they buy online. After ordering an Xbox, paying more than

:13:52.:13:58.

?450, this is what he got back. A picture of an Xbox. That is actually

:13:59.:14:05.

what had been advertised online. I was flabbergasted at first. I was

:14:06.:14:10.

expecting the Xbox to be a bit more bulky than it was. It was very slim.

:14:11.:14:15.

I thought, I have been conned out of money. I had to laugh at first. You

:14:16.:14:21.

can't be angry, it's your own fault. What did you say to the person who

:14:22.:14:27.

sold it to you? At first, I said, very funny. He got back to me and

:14:28.:14:32.

said you got what you bought. The auction site was eBay.

:14:33.:14:45.

Very misleading. It says photo but in the description it says 500 bed

:14:46.:14:55.

debates, hard drive, Bluetooth, Wi`Fi. You thought you were buying

:14:56.:15:03.

an Xbox. I really did. In the run`up to Christmas, Peter hopes consumers

:15:04.:15:08.

will check and check again before the order.

:15:09.:15:13.

That would have been a bit of a disappointment. Just a little bit. A

:15:14.:15:18.

little envelope. Time for sport. And some important

:15:19.:15:25.

games this weekend. Colin's been out to Derby County where things are

:15:26.:15:29.

going well for the new man in charge.

:15:30.:15:32.

The Rams, not short of attention. Head coach Steve McClaren has

:15:33.:15:35.

catapulted the Rams up the table! Since he took charge nine games ago,

:15:36.:15:39.

the Rams have won six, drawn two, and only lost one. They are the

:15:40.:15:42.

in`form team, fourth in the Championship, the ones to watch. So

:15:43.:15:45.

this week, Angela Rafferty has been charting the rise o f the Rams.

:15:46.:15:50.

From 14th to fourth in just nine league games, McClaren's men are

:15:51.:15:54.

enjoying a meteoric rise of the Championship table.

:15:55.:16:26.

The whole town is buzzing again. Yes. I wouldn't rule out automatic

:16:27.:16:35.

promotion. When anybody is doing well, no

:16:36.:16:39.

matter who it is, it is a good time. Penmanship, definitely. I

:16:40.:16:44.

would say so, this season or next. Derby County is on the up. We have

:16:45.:16:49.

to make sure we maintain it. That is our job, the players's job, and

:16:50.:16:54.

performance. And about points and not letting people get carried away.

:16:55.:16:59.

We are not even dreaming of promotion, play`offs. In March,

:17:00.:17:05.

April, if we are in the same position, you can say, Derby County

:17:06.:17:10.

are genuine contenders. At present, we are on a very good run with a lot

:17:11.:17:16.

to prove. McClaren has led the team to the top and the feeling there is

:17:17.:17:23.

plenty more `` is that there is plenty more to come.

:17:24.:17:25.

An exceptional start to Steve McClaren. The Steve McClaren era has

:17:26.:17:29.

started in impressive style. But it coincides with a new start for the

:17:30.:17:51.

stadium here. Tomorrow, Pride Park will be re`named the iPro Stadium in

:17:52.:17:54.

a sponsorship deal worth ?7 million. Look, the signs are already

:17:55.:17:58.

up. More on that is a minute but the team Derby and everyone is chasing

:17:59.:18:01.

at the top is of course near neighbours Leicester City.

:18:02.:18:03.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson says many of his team have an extra

:18:04.:18:06.

incentive to perform to stay at the top of the league. 11 first`team

:18:07.:18:10.

players are out of contract in the summer, including Kasper

:18:11.:18:15.

Schmeichel, Wes Morgan and David Nugent. We will have to see if it

:18:16.:18:22.

has an impact. Hopefully it doesn't. Players have focused very well so

:18:23.:18:29.

far in doing the job. Like anybody else, they will want to get their

:18:30.:18:33.

future is sorted out but they have a better chance of doing that if we

:18:34.:18:38.

remain successful. Pearson's contract expires in the summer.

:18:39.:18:44.

Football management is not exactly these most secure job in the world.

:18:45.:18:49.

I don't really think, in some ways, the contract situation is something

:18:50.:18:56.

that I need to be overly concerned about. And it's not going to affect

:18:57.:19:00.

how I do the job one way or the other. I am just cracking on. The

:19:01.:19:05.

next test, a game at Brighton tomorrow.

:19:06.:19:11.

We have come back inside. As have all of these people, to see a proper

:19:12.:19:20.

hero. We will be talking to him in a minute and revealing who that is.

:19:21.:19:28.

First, the rest of the action. Nottingham Forest are eighth in the

:19:29.:19:32.

Championship and a way to Sheffield Wednesday. In league one, Notts

:19:33.:19:41.

County have jailing them. Mansfield are in FA Cup second round action.

:19:42.:19:46.

In rugby, Leicester Tigers have a crucial game in the European cup. I

:19:47.:19:50.

hope you saw our feature yesterday building up to that. And our best

:19:51.:19:56.

wishes to Mark Selby, the defending UK champion. The semi finals this

:19:57.:20:01.

weekend, he is defending his title. Let us meet the man all these people

:20:02.:20:07.

are here to meet. Former club captain at Derby County. A legend.

:20:08.:20:13.

Welcome back! Are you pleased to be back? I am always pleased to be back

:20:14.:20:18.

here. It was a special place for you, what are your best memories? It

:20:19.:20:23.

brings memories back, only good ones. I never had any bad memory

:20:24.:20:29.

from here. Even when I left a long time ago, this club, these people, I

:20:30.:20:36.

always have it in my heart. Wherever I am, Derby County is with me.

:20:37.:20:41.

Walking back in with a lot of people you were around, they are running

:20:42.:20:49.

the place! That is why I am here. I have a strong feeling good and

:20:50.:20:52.

positive things are happening here. I came actually to be a good

:20:53.:20:59.

supporter to my old friends come in improving their home run.

:21:00.:21:05.

What next view, there are some job openings in England. We will see. It

:21:06.:21:09.

is too soon. It is interesting. But... What I intend to do is spend

:21:10.:21:16.

Christmas and New Year with my family, then look for another

:21:17.:21:20.

challenge. If they invited you to be part of things at Derby County,

:21:21.:21:25.

would you jump? We will see. No rush. We will let you get to these

:21:26.:21:34.

people. A real legend here at Derby County. Lots going on at the

:21:35.:21:40.

weekend. Follow it on BBC local radio for commentary.

:21:41.:21:42.

It's that time of the year when men dress as women, women dress as men,

:21:43.:21:48.

and usually everyone lives happily ever after. Yes, the panto season is

:21:49.:21:52.

upon us and, at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham, Peter Pan is littered

:21:53.:21:58.

with star names. I spent a little time this afternoon backstage with a

:21:59.:22:01.

magical mermaid and Captain Hook, aka the lovely Sue Pollard, and the

:22:02.:22:04.

legend that is the Hoff, David Hasselhoff. It was mad.

:22:05.:22:15.

Can I enter a moment. Hi, how are you. It is lovely to see you both.

:22:16.:22:26.

Tuesday sitting down. How is it going, it sounds fabulous. It is

:22:27.:22:30.

going better than last year. Last year, we had no full dress

:22:31.:22:35.

rehearsal. I have heard technical rehearsal is so difficult with so

:22:36.:22:42.

much flying. Do you fly? Not at all. But, each gentleman helping with the

:22:43.:22:50.

flying in the wings, it is almost choreographed, like bell`ringing. It

:22:51.:22:57.

has got to be precise. Health and safety. We've only lost two cast

:22:58.:23:02.

members. They weren't very nice anyway! You seem to be get along

:23:03.:23:07.

like a house on fire. We are old school. We earned our fame! We

:23:08.:23:14.

started off very young. We hit the boards early. That's why we love

:23:15.:23:17.

each other. We have been around the block. I have a co`presenter,

:23:18.:23:23.

Dominic. I wouldn't say he is old but he's not young. He wanted a bit

:23:24.:23:29.

of advice how to retain this ability to be eye candy. Surround yourself

:23:30.:23:34.

with beautiful women. You want to look good for the girls and

:23:35.:23:38.

yourself. You were here 30 years ago. You look as if you must have

:23:39.:23:46.

been two years old. I was ten. I was the youngest! I can't believe I have

:23:47.:23:53.

had to wait all this time to come back to Nottingham to do a panto.

:23:54.:24:03.

You broken all the records already. We haven't even opened up yet! One

:24:04.:24:09.

last thing, how are you finding the area. Do you love it here? I love it

:24:10.:24:16.

here. I am a real fan. I have a little disguise, as walk around and

:24:17.:24:23.

see, and embrace the past because it's still here. It still feels like

:24:24.:24:28.

a medieval city. Will you come back? Absolutely. The main thing is,

:24:29.:24:33.

when he comes back again, he will have deciphered all the accents. "

:24:34.:24:39.

??FORCEDCAPNEXT what was that? What are you talking about? ! "

:24:40.:24:44.

I just wait for my cube if I don't understand anything. I know you have

:24:45.:24:53.

a dress rehearsal. Good luck with the opening night. Don't you just

:24:54.:24:55.

love us! Yes, they do. Fabulous. It was such fun. I could have

:24:56.:25:09.

chatted with all afternoon. I have taken the advice of surrounding

:25:10.:25:13.

myself with beautiful women. Thankfully, things have calmed down

:25:14.:25:17.

after the disruptive weather yesterday. The Atlantic storm has

:25:18.:25:24.

cleared away to Scandinavia. Over the weekend, high`pressure moves in

:25:25.:25:30.

to the south. That will dominate, keeping us really quite settled. The

:25:31.:25:35.

winds will be light at the weekend. Less cold. Generally dry. We may see

:25:36.:25:40.

some sunshine tomorrow. Do you get out and about.

:25:41.:25:47.

Tonight, still fairly cold at the moment. We start to see showers

:25:48.:25:51.

moving in from the north`west with the risk of ice early this evening.

:25:52.:25:56.

The showers may be witchy over higher ground. Then, milder air from

:25:57.:26:01.

the West and temperatures will start to rise in the early hours.

:26:02.:26:07.

Temperatures down to three degrees. A frost free start to Saturday. Less

:26:08.:26:13.

cold tomorrow, feeling milder. Cloud around first thing but that should

:26:14.:26:15.

break 0 around first thing but that should

:26:16.:26:17.

break up. Some lovely sunny intervals the day. Dry for most of

:26:18.:26:24.

us will stop one or two rogue showers in the Peak District. A high

:26:25.:26:29.

of eight degrees in the south`west. Looking further ahead at Sunday. Not

:26:30.:26:34.

too bad. Generally, a bit of cloud around. It looks like a dry day. A

:26:35.:26:42.

high of 10 degrees on Sunday. Two or three degrees higher than what we

:26:43.:26:47.

would expect. A good compromise after the cold day today. The

:26:48.:26:52.

outlook, Saturday, bright spells, more cloud on Sunday. Staying mild

:26:53.:26:59.

on Monday, 10 degrees again. In the middle of next week, it is set to

:27:00.:27:04.

get a little bit colder. A brief cold snap today but milder for the

:27:05.:27:06.

weekend. Finally from us, you may remember on

:27:07.:27:11.

last night's programme, we told you about the two`year`old girl from

:27:12.:27:13.

Southwell in Nottinghamshire, who suffers from muscular dystrophy. And

:27:14.:27:17.

who, this year, was asked to turn on her town's Christmas lights. This

:27:18.:27:20.

was the moment Iris Jaworski waved her magic wand to switch on the

:27:21.:27:27.

lights. She was joined by dozens of local school children. Her parents

:27:28.:27:36.

have said they hope the event will help raise money for research into

:27:37.:27:38.

her condition. That's all from us. Join us again

:27:39.:27:44.

during the ten o'clock news. Goodbye.
