the BBC news at This is East Midlands Today with

:00:00.:00:00.

Anne davies and me, Dominic Heale: Tonight ` the pressure's on in A

:00:07.:00:36.

Delight of the Derby. What does McLaren think of his chief

:00:37.:00:52.

executive's first year in charge. Welcome to the programme. First

:00:53.:00:55.

tonight, more evidence of the huge pressures being faced by our

:00:56.:01:01.

accident and emergency units. Tonight we can reveal some patients

:01:02.:01:04.

are facing lengthy delays as they're handed over from ambulance crews to

:01:05.:01:09.

hospital staff. Figures we've obtained reveal instances of

:01:10.:01:12.

patients waiting up to four hours to be booked in. Our Health

:01:13.:01:19.

Correspondent Rob Sissons reports. The latest snapshot of the pressure

:01:20.:01:22.

our A unit comes under handover time. It should take no more than 15

:01:23.:01:27.

minutes to handover a patient from ambulance crews to hospital staff.

:01:28.:01:32.

The 12 weeks of data obtained by BBC news shows in the east midlands the

:01:33.:01:35.

average wasn't far off at over 18 minutes but that masks some very

:01:36.:01:42.

lengthy delays. Here's the worst at each hospital from August to

:01:43.:01:45.

November At Kings Mill a four hours wait is being disputed. At

:01:46.:01:49.

Nottingham's Queens medical centre one patient wasited two hours 44

:01:50.:01:53.

minutes for handover to be competed, and over at the Leicester Royal

:01:54.:01:56.

Infirmary a patient handover took one hour 54 mintues. There, they

:01:57.:02:07.

accept they've been under strain. At the moment, because of pressures in

:02:08.:02:11.

the organisation, we are having more patience and we would have liked

:02:12.:02:16.

waiting to be transferred. It is completely unacceptable. The role of

:02:17.:02:20.

Burnley side have too few sides. You're taking action to try and

:02:21.:02:24.

mitigate against that. It'll be a very challenging and Amanda in

:02:25.:02:27.

winter, occasionally patience will wait too long. And balloons trolleys

:02:28.:02:32.

have been fitted with electronic tags. That'll help Clark when the

:02:33.:02:39.

patient arrives in hospital and when the trolley leaves. Here there be

:02:40.:02:47.

patients faster. At peak times it proves hard. The reasons why patient

:02:48.:02:54.

wait too long. The volume of ambulances arrived together,

:02:55.:02:59.

sometimes seven or eight Amblin 's arrive in a few minutes, we can't

:03:00.:03:03.

deal with that. The Air Ambulance Service tall as they are working

:03:04.:03:08.

closely with the hospitals. There is a new BBC website, way can track how

:03:09.:03:13.

your hospital bills this winter, by simply typing in your postcode.

:03:14.:03:17.

There are special pages on Facebook and Twitter where you can have your

:03:18.:03:25.

say. Simply go to the BBC website. Next, High Speed Rail may be years

:03:26.:03:29.

away, but from today our region has faster links with London. For the

:03:30.:03:36.

first time trains are able to travel at a 125 miles an hour cutting

:03:37.:03:39.

journey times from our cities. Not all passengers are impressed though

:03:40.:03:45.

as Mike O'Sullivan reports. The 901 from Derby to London got a

:03:46.:03:49.

special welcome today from the Secretary of State for Transport. It

:03:50.:03:54.

is the first of the faster trains from the city, now able to travel at

:03:55.:03:58.

125 miles an hour, knocking off minutes off the average journey time

:03:59.:04:04.

to the capital. How impressed are passengers? Four minutes is not a

:04:05.:04:11.

lot. Every little bit of speed is good I suppose. An improvement of

:04:12.:04:24.

four minutes is good. Grim. It will probably make quite a big difference

:04:25.:04:29.

to a lot of people. It is a result of a ?70 million investment by

:04:30.:04:31.

network rail. Improvements include realigning the rails and taking out

:04:32.:04:34.

a level crossings, meaning trains can reach the top speed on around 60

:04:35.:04:41.

miles of track. Here in Derby, they have cut four minutes off the

:04:42.:04:46.

average journey time to London. The bus trip will be one hour 20

:04:47.:04:50.

minutes. In Nottingham, they have knocked five minutes off that time.

:04:51.:04:53.

The faster trip will be one hour 31 minutes. In Leicester, just a minute

:04:54.:04:57.

has been shaved off. The fastest time is one hour and five minutes.

:04:58.:05:01.

With even quicker time to come through over the next five years,

:05:02.:05:04.

does it make high`speed rail redundant? One of the reasons is

:05:05.:05:12.

capacity, one of the reasons is the way we are seeing numbers grow. We

:05:13.:05:16.

are 0 way we are seeing numbers grow. We

:05:17.:05:17.

are also seeing more and more railways, people want to see more

:05:18.:05:25.

freight. Time to put your foot down on a liner which previously limited

:05:26.:05:34.

the driver to 110 miles an hour. Later in the programme. Who'll come

:05:35.:05:38.

here ` and how many? The big questions posed by Bulgaria and

:05:39.:05:41.

Romania. Plus: In full bloom. 0

Romania. Plus: In full bloom. One of the last

garden centres in Derbyshire selling these Christmas plants.

:05:47.:05:56.

A man who carried out a fire bomb attack on the constituency office of

:05:57.:05:59.

an East Midlands MP has been jailed for 15 months. A court heard how

:06:00.:06:03.

Paul Leverseidge threw a homemade firework at the offices of the

:06:04.:06:09.

Grantham and Stamford MP Nick Boles. He lived in a flat opposite. He

:06:10.:06:12.

admitted a charge of having an explosive. The defence said his life

:06:13.:06:16.

had fallen apart after his father died and he turned to drugs.

:06:17.:06:21.

Parliamentarians are continuing with their tributes to Nelson Mandela in

:06:22.:06:25.

a special session at Westminster. David Cameron and three former Prime

:06:26.:06:28.

Ministers will travel to the memorial service in South Africa

:06:29.:06:32.

tomorrow. As people continue to sign books of

:06:33.:06:35.

condolence more details have emerged about how he will be commemorated in

:06:36.:06:40.

the East Midlands. Quentin Rayner reports.

:06:41.:06:44.

In Parliament Square the floral tributes grow around Nelson

:06:45.:06:48.

Mandela's statue. Across the way verbal tributes flowed including

:06:49.:06:51.

this from a former Foreign Secretary who met him several times. We all

:06:52.:07:03.

honour him as a hero. Unlike some others who also honoured in that

:07:04.:07:09.

vein, the sickly during my student years, he became also a hero of

:07:10.:07:17.

peace. That is why we remember him. On Saturday a Walk of Freedom will

:07:18.:07:21.

make its way from Nelson Mandela Park to Leicester Cathedral where,

:07:22.:07:23.

as elsewhere, books of condolence have been opened. It was part of the

:07:24.:07:34.

suffering in South Africa. I've met Nelson Mandela several times. It was

:07:35.:07:43.

my duty to comment do this. Is a way to 0

:07:44.:07:44.

my duty to comment do this. Is a way to say goodbye and thank you. It is

:07:45.:07:50.

a remembrance of the time I spent a year. It was a moving occasion. He

:07:51.:07:55.

is the most fantastic man I've ever met. There have been many great men

:07:56.:08:01.

in the centuries, but this is the only great man I've seen. I think

:08:02.:08:07.

years a most inspirational man was obvious not a perfect man, but he

:08:08.:08:13.

did not what many people can do. It is just to pay respect to someone he

:08:14.:08:17.

was completely inspirational. A day of words for a man who rewrote

:08:18.:08:19.

history. A pub landlord and his family have

:08:20.:08:23.

lost everything they own after fire tore through the premises at the

:08:24.:08:31.

weekend. Eddie and Amy Mulgrew lived at the Bridge Pub at Gamston in

:08:32.:08:34.

Nottinghamshire but managed to escape the blaze along with

:08:35.:08:35.

customers. 0 escape the blaze along with

:08:36.:08:38.

customers. The brewery has promised to rehome the couple, and pledged to

:08:39.:08:42.

rebuild the pub which was so badly damaged it'll have to be demolished.

:08:43.:08:48.

Sarah Teale reports. This was the fire at its height on

:08:49.:08:52.

Saturday afternoon. Flames engulfed the Bridge pub, a local landmark at

:08:53.:09:01.

Gamston in Nottingham. Within minutes the blaze had spread

:09:02.:09:04.

throughout the entire two storey pub gutting the whole building. Eight

:09:05.:09:11.

fire engines were called in to keep it under control. The road had to be

:09:12.:09:15.

closed because of the billowing smoke. We were on the scene for 18

:09:16.:09:21.

hours. We had one high`rise appliance and support vehicles.

:09:22.:09:25.

There was quite a lot of flames coming from the roof. There was

:09:26.:09:29.

smoke as well. Fortunately around 30 staff and customers were all

:09:30.:09:37.

evacuated safely. This was The landlord, his wife and their family

:09:38.:09:40.

managed to escape. Also a family home. But the fire has destroyed

:09:41.:09:44.

what was their home just before Christmas. Everybody got out,

:09:45.:09:51.

everything is fine. In terms of Eddie and Amy, they will be looked

:09:52.:09:55.

after. They would like to find everyone he was acquired about

:09:56.:10:00.

them. The brewery is now keen to quash rumours that the pub land will

:10:01.:10:06.

be sold off for development. We're not going to be able to salvage the

:10:07.:10:10.

building itself, so it will be demolished and replaced.

:10:11.:10:16.

Investigations continue on what caused the fire which is believed to

:10:17.:10:26.

started in the kitchen. In a few weeks time Bulgarians and

:10:27.:10:29.

Romanians will gain the same rights as other European citizens to work

:10:30.:10:33.

in the UK. Diplomats from Bulgaria and Romania have repeatedly stressed

:10:34.:10:36.

that they are not expecting a "wave" of migration. But others have warned

:10:37.:10:40.

that tens of thousands could come here every year. We'll have more in

:10:41.:10:44.

a minute from our social affairs correspondent Jeremy Ball, but first

:10:45.:10:48.

Simon Ward has been talking to a group of Romanians who are working

:10:49.:10:49.

and studying at Derby 0 group of Romanians who are working

:10:50.:10:57.

and studying at Derby University. How many of his fellow countrymen

:10:58.:11:01.

will come here next year? That's a more difficult calculation. Dr.

:11:02.:11:04.

Ovidiu Bagdasar, from Romania teaches mathematics at the

:11:05.:11:06.

University of Derby. Some Romanians and Bulgarians already have the

:11:07.:11:10.

right to work here and there's quite a list of jobs that people can do,

:11:11.:11:14.

but all jobs will be open in the New Year. We're discussing the issues

:11:15.:11:17.

with other Romanians at the university. What do you say to

:11:18.:11:24.

people who feel they might be a lot of good look on the jobs? I think

:11:25.:11:30.

that nobody should panic will stop this is my 0

:11:31.:11:30.

that nobody should panic will stop this is my first message. It takes a

:11:31.:11:37.

lot of skill and a lot of confidence for that I'm sure only the people

:11:38.:11:41.

with the right skill sets who can bring a contribution here will come.

:11:42.:11:44.

The wages 0 bring a contribution here will come.

:11:45.:11:47.

The wages are much higher here than in Romania. It is that attractive?

:11:48.:11:52.

Cost of food is much higher in Romania. I don't think there will be

:11:53.:11:59.

a real profit. Surely if there has been an English person and the

:12:00.:12:03.

remaining person going for the same job, the remaining person got it

:12:04.:12:07.

because they have more skills. It is not because it had been preferred.

:12:08.:12:12.

Are you planning on to stay in the East Midlands? I would like to stay

:12:13.:12:19.

near the couple more years to develop my skills even more, because

:12:20.:12:22.

I think it is very different, the you learn here to the way you can

:12:23.:12:27.

learn and enhance your skills and Romania. In ten years, I see myself

:12:28.:12:34.

at home. Dr. Bagdasar is settled here with

:12:35.:12:38.

his family for the moment at least. Next year the UK will be keeping a

:12:39.:12:42.

close eye on the numbers of Romanians and Bulgarians who follow

:12:43.:12:45.

him. Simon Ward. So why are these changes so

:12:46.:12:49.

controversial? And what could it mean for the rest of us? Our Social

:12:50.:12:52.

Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, has been looking at the arguments.

:12:53.:12:56.

There are some real concerns here, aren't there? Yes. Critics are very

:12:57.:13:01.

worried about pressure on services. Things like health, housing, and

:13:02.:13:05.

schools. If you're looking for a job, this means you're likely to

:13:06.:13:09.

face more competition. And there's real concern about new arrivals

:13:10.:13:12.

claiming benefits as well. There are urban myths around that. You can't

:13:13.:13:17.

simply come here to claim the dole. But new arrivals are likely to be in

:13:18.:13:20.

low paid jobs, which eventually entitles them to things like housing

:13:21.:13:23.

benefit. So it's still very contentious. Is there an upside for

:13:24.:13:34.

us? Well supporters think that, overall, these changes benefit

:13:35.:13:37.

Britain's economy. That's because migrant workers have to pay taxes.

:13:38.:13:43.

While increasing numbers of British people are retired, and drawing

:13:44.:13:51.

pensions. There are a lot of these migrants who will be working in

:13:52.:13:56.

places like hospitals. They also have crucial role to play. There is

:13:57.:14:02.

one argument is that about that, we could all be paying more for our

:14:03.:14:08.

shopping. So do we know how many Romanians and Bulgarians are likely

:14:09.:14:11.

to come to Britain? We don't. But we've heard some widely varying

:14:12.:14:14.

predications. At the top end, Migrationwatch thinks we'll see

:14:15.:14:16.

50,000 people a year, coming from Romania and Bulgaria. They've warned

:14:17.:14:20.

that numbers were much higher than expected, last time the rules were

:14:21.:14:21.

relaxed. But 0 expected, last time the rules were

:14:22.:14:24.

relaxed. But the government says that's because Britain was the only

:14:25.:14:38.

major country to let come and work. So ministers think the numbers will

:14:39.:14:41.

be much, much lower. And we'll find out in the New Year.

:14:42.:14:46.

A Nottinghamshire MP has written to the Prime Minister supporting

:14:47.:14:49.

campaigners opposing plans to build on land in her constituency.

:14:50.:14:52.

Planners from Broxtowe Council want five hundred homes to be built at

:14:53.:14:57.

Toton. A government inspector has recommended the plan should go

:14:58.:15:02.

ahead. But Anna Soubry ` the MP for the area ` insists the move is

:15:03.:15:05.

against government policy. She's now calling for the public inquiry to be

:15:06.:15:09.

reopened so those in Toton can have their say.

:15:10.:15:13.

knife has increased in the past year.

Road First, the American chairman of Derby County says the last six years

:15:46.:15:48.

have been much tougher than expected.

:15:49.:16:04.

In an exclusive interview, Andy Appleby says Derby is now where they

:16:05.:16:11.

planned to be four years ago. But he says Chief Executive Sam Rush and

:16:12.:16:14.

Steve McClaren are now giving them a glimpse, promotion is possible this

six years. It does feel like a brand`new start. We are a debtor

gratitude to Nigel Clough for help and a steady the ship. It is not an

:17:18.:17:23.

overnight success. Although it seems like it. Steve is giving us a

glimpse that it is possible. The results going the way they are, it

penalty. Craig Bryson added a third. And there was no way back Blackpool.

:18:23.:18:30.

Martin grabbed his hat`trick. And captain got a tapping at the end to

brilliant for all our teams. Every single one getting Premiership

:19:18.:19:20.

opposition. Couple of tasty rematches in there too. Plenty of

:19:21.:19:23.

history to Forest versus West Ham and to Mansfield's possible trip to

:19:24.:19:26.

Anfield. But Derby against Chelsea is the pick. Leicester City face a

:19:27.:19:31.

challenging December after suffering two defeats in a week to knock them

:19:32.:19:35.

off the top spot. Their next three league games are against clubs in

:19:36.:19:39.

the top six. Meanwhile Nottingham Forest recorded their first win in a

:19:40.:19:45.

month. Mark Shardlow reports. Forest were close to concealing a

:19:46.:19:48.

calamitous goal at Sheff Wednesday, but keeper Karl Darlow made a

:19:49.:19:52.

brilliant recovery. It was an important moment as the game only

:19:53.:19:56.

had one goal, this from Simon Cox, his fourth in five games to put

:19:57.:20:01.

Forest back in a play`off place. A week ago, Leicester City were

:20:02.:20:04.

celebrating being top of the league, but it was the Brighton fans

:20:05.:20:08.

cheering at the weekend. In a poor first`half performance, City found

:20:09.:20:11.

themselves two down before the half`hour mark. Nigel Pearson rang

:20:12.:20:16.

the changes and city pulled themselves back into the game with

:20:17.:20:20.

this header from Andy King. But Leicester had given themselves too

:20:21.:20:24.

much to do. As they committed men forward, Morgan conceded a penalty

:20:25.:20:33.

and Leicester lost 3`1. So Leicester are third. But what a table for our

:20:34.:20:37.

clubs, with Derby fourth and Forest fifth. This coming weekend Leicester

:20:38.:20:40.

are at home to table topping Burnley. In League One there was a

:20:41.:20:45.

first win for Notts County manager Shaun Derry. And he had two loan

:20:46.:20:48.

signings to thank. Celtic's Callum McGregor scored the first at home to

:20:49.:20:52.
