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

Tonight ` could the authorities have prevented the death of a toddler?

:00:10.:00:23.

Two`year`old Riley swallowed his mother methadone. People were not

sufficiently sited on the needs of this little boy. Also, store wars in

Leicester as independent shopkeepers take on Tesco. Plus, give me a tram

after midnight. Our Nottingham's new fleet is being tested in the wee

small hours. And the astronauts who became a big hit in cyberspace.

You are weightless. You get so used to flying, touching something with

:00:56.:01:00.

your finger and flying across the room. Good evening and welcome to

:01:01.:01:14.

the programme. An investigation into the death of a toddler has found he

:01:15.:01:18.

would probably still be alive today if concerns about his care had been

:01:19.:01:21.

shared correctly. Two`year`old Riley Pettipierre, from Belper in

:01:22.:01:23.

Derbyshire, died after swallowing some of his mother's methadone. A

:01:24.:01:26.

report that's just been published has ruled there were "significant

:01:27.:01:29.

failings" by the authorities. Simon Hare reports.

:01:30.:01:42.

Reilly dies after swallowing some of his mother's heroin substitute. She

:01:43.:01:47.

poured it into one of his drinking beakers at his father moved it

:01:48.:01:52.

within his reach. The youngster was found lifeless at the family flat in

:01:53.:01:59.

Derbyshire. His parents were convicted of manslaughter and

:02:00.:02:04.

jailed. But now a so`called Serious Case Review has ruled health workers

:02:05.:02:09.

and the police could and should have told social workers about the family

:02:10.:02:16.

circumstances. This report, whilst it identifies some good practice in

:02:17.:02:20.

the work undertaken with the mother, doesn't find there were

:02:21.:02:26.

serious failings. Failings in the way the focus was maintained on the

:02:27.:02:31.

mother and people were not sufficiently sited on the needs of

:02:32.:02:35.

the little boy. The methadone should have been stored in this box but she

:02:36.:02:41.

had been selling it on to find her habit for illegal drugs. Days before

:02:42.:02:47.

the death, police had been tipped off about drug dealing at the

:02:48.:02:51.

property. But they were not aware a child was at the address. The

:02:52.:02:57.

tragedy is on that day that Reilly died, the information around drug

:02:58.:03:01.

dealing at the address would have been June four will `` for review

:03:02.:03:05.

and we would have decided what enforcement activity to take.

:03:06.:03:10.

Officials say action has been taken to stop something similar from

:03:11.:03:15.

happening again. Today's report concludes that have social services

:03:16.:03:18.

been told about the living conditions, he would still be alive

:03:19.:03:26.

today. A supermarket giant has called a

:03:27.:03:29.

meeting with a Leicester MP because of a row over plans to open a new

:03:30.:03:32.

store in 0 of a row over plans to open a new

:03:33.:03:34.

store in the City. Tesco says its new express shop will create twenty

:03:35.:03:37.

jobs. But independent traders in the Clarendon Park area have told us

:03:38.:03:41.

they're furious about the plans. Eleanor Garnier is there now,

:03:42.:03:44.

Eleanor it sounds like this is getting quite heated.

road is the bank that Tesco wants to turn into a new store. But they have

:04:06.:04:11.

a fight on their hands, there is a well`organised campaign group

:04:12.:04:15.

determined to ruin the plans. Queens Road, Leicester with a

:04:16.:04:20.

reputation for independent shops and cafes. Over the years, the national

:04:21.:04:25.

chains have crept in and now Tesco wants to join the club. It has taken

:04:26.:04:31.

over an old bank and says a new store will create 20 jobs. The

:04:32.:04:36.

independent shops cannot take any drop in trade whatsoever. Because of

the 0 drop in trade whatsoever. Because of

:04:41.:04:41.

the economic situation, we are hanging on by our teeth and any drop

:04:42.:04:49.

in trade could see the end of us. They say they will create 20 jobs

:04:50.:04:54.

but how many jobs will be lost? Chris 0 0

:04:55.:04:54.

but how many jobs will be lost? Chris employs seven staff, if the

shop goes, that will be seven jobs gone. I have walked up and down

:04:59.:05:05.

Queens Road and every shop now has these say no to Tesco signs. There

were a couple 0 these say no to Tesco signs. There

:05:08.:05:09.

were a couple of traders who said they are in favour of a new store.

:05:10.:05:14.

Interestingly, they would not speak on camera. We go where we are wanted

:05:15.:05:20.

and there is support for this store, it will bring lots of people to this

:05:21.:05:24.

side of the street and this area of the road, we think it will be a

:05:25.:05:31.

great addition and it will be welcomed. 2000 people have signed

:05:32.:05:35.

the petition, the traders are against Tesco but I am sure people

:05:36.:05:39.

have different views so I am launching a survey to get views and

:05:40.:05:44.

I am putting the concerns of residents and traders directly to

:05:45.:05:48.

Tesco. As word got out a news camera was in the area, campaign is

:05:49.:05:54.

mobilised. This is a fight that is only going to get louder. Their rear

:05:55.:06:00.

is some way to go before Tesco can bring in the builders, they have

:06:01.:06:04.

secured the release and it has planning permission to be used as a

:06:05.:06:08.

shop but they need consent from the City Council for a cash machine and

:06:09.:06:13.

signs for the store. Local campaigners tell me if the plans go

:06:14.:06:19.

through, they will boycott not only the store but all Tesco shops and

:06:20.:06:25.

products. Later in the programme ` coming home ` for Christmas. Des

Malbon was forced out of his bungalow by this Summer's flash

floods. Now, he's home and dry. A woman's appeared in court charged

:06:30.:06:41.

with the murder of a Derbyshire pensioner. 70`year`old Sandra

Bainbridge was discovered in her home on Short 0

Bainbridge was discovered in her home on Short Row in Belper on

:06:45.:06:46.

Tuesday night. Andrea Cutler, who's 37 and from Derby, appeared before

:06:47.:06:49.

city magistrates accused of her murder. She's been remanded into

:06:50.:06:52.

custody to appear at Nottingham Crown Court next week.

:06:53.:07:02.

Dramatic footage has been released of the moment a jeweller is attacked

:07:03.:07:05.

in his Leicestershire home by a robber posing as a delivery man. He

:07:06.:07:09.

uses a taser stun gun on Nigel Blackburn, who falls to the ground

:07:10.:07:13.

with the burglar on top of him. But Nigel's screams alert his fiancee

:07:14.:07:16.

and her friend, who chase off the attacker with kitchen knives and a

:07:17.:07:19.

cleaver. The robber, who's from Lancashire, has been jailed for

:07:20.:07:20.

eight years. An appeal is underway to improve

:07:21.:07:30.

maternity facilities for women who deliver still born babies. The

:07:31.:07:35.

Leicester Baby Loss appeal aims to raise ?100,000 for a new bereavement

:07:36.:07:39.

delivery suite. On average 17 babies are stillborn every day in the UK.

:07:40.:07:43.

Our health correspondent Rob Sissons reports.

:07:44.:07:55.

The joy of a healthy baby, Keith and his wife know about the shattered

:07:56.:08:00.

dream, a stillbirth. They are returning to the counselling room

:08:01.:08:03.

they set up for other grieving parents at Leicester general named

:08:04.:08:08.

after their lost daughter. It took a long time for me to accept that that

:08:09.:08:13.

had happened and I felt at the time that when I gave birth, the baby was

:08:14.:08:20.

going to be born alive and it would be OK. It is important we try to

:08:21.:08:25.

discover the reasons for this, 20 years on, the figures are the same.

:08:26.:08:32.

You never get over the loss of that baby. Even 0 0

:08:33.:08:32.

You never get over the loss of that baby. Even if you have others. Last

:08:33.:08:39.

year, there were 10,000 babies born at Leicester, there were over 200

:08:40.:08:46.

stillborn. The current setup for delivery is not ideal. The worst

:08:47.:08:51.

thing is being in the area where you have other mothers giving birth to

:08:52.:08:55.

live babies, listening to those babies being born and crying when

:08:56.:08:57.

that isn't happening for 0 babies being born and crying when

:08:58.:09:00.

that isn't happening for you. The plan now is to create a more private

:09:01.:09:04.

space. This is the main delivery suite, the delivery rooms are down

:09:05.:09:13.

there. What we aim to do is develop the room up there near the offices

:09:14.:09:19.

so it is out of the way from the main delivery suite and the noise.

:09:20.:09:25.

We are trying to make it the best it can be under the circumstances, you

:09:26.:09:29.

never get over losing a baby, you never would. You think of that baby

:09:30.:09:34.

at every stage of its life. Money from the appeal will improve

facilities at the Royal Infirmary. The latest batch of Army Reservists

:09:42.:09:45.

have held their passing`out parade at the Prince William of Gloucester

:09:46.:09:47.

barracks at Grantham in Lincolnshire today. For them, it marked the end

:09:48.:09:51.

of an intensive, two week training course. But for the new Army

:09:52.:09:53.

Reserve, 0 0 course. But for the new Army

:09:54.:09:55.

Reserve, it's the start of a big recruitment push as the regular Army

:09:56.:09:58.

faces big cuts. Here's our political editor John Hess.

:09:59.:10:07.

Drilled up and ready for inspection, these reserve this completed the

:10:08.:10:13.

first stage of training at the Prince William of Gloucester

:10:14.:10:19.

barracks run them. Next? I have commando training. They are among

:10:20.:10:27.

more reservists which the government hope and offset the Treasury squeeze

:10:28.:10:31.

on military budgets. The MoD wants to expand the Army reserves to

:10:32.:10:36.

30,000, a third higher to make up for cuts in the regular forces. It

:10:37.:10:43.

is doable. We have looked at the Australian and Canadian models. We

:10:44.:10:47.

can have a larger percentage of the army being made up of reserves. Anna

:10:48.:10:53.

Soubry visits the hate queue of the reserves formerly known as the

:10:54.:10:58.

Territorial Army near Nottingham. We have a good history of reserves and

:10:59.:11:02.

we want to build on that and quite frankly these passing out parade,

:11:03.:11:06.

which the public what the reserves are about, shoulder to shoulder with

:11:07.:11:12.

serving personnel. The Shadow Defence Secretary fired this salvo.

:11:13.:11:16.

Can you reduce the number of regular troops at the speed and in the

:11:17.:11:20.

quantity the government are doing? And also recruit the reserves to

:11:21.:11:26.

plug the gap? There are issues and that is the concern people have. The

:11:27.:11:31.

regular Army is being cut by 20,000 in the next seven years, the MoD

:11:32.:11:36.

hopes these reserve list and more to follow will be a bigger part of

:13:57.:13:59.

awareness of rape and sex attacks has been criticised by a women's aid

:14:00.:14:02.

charity. The force's Christmas campaign includes an adaptation of

:14:03.:14:05.

the poem The Night Before Christmas. It's aimed at potential attackers.

:14:06.:14:10.

But Midlands Womens Aid has called for it to be withdrawn because it

:14:11.:14:14.

says the poem trivialises the long term effects of rape. A police

:14:15.:14:17.

spokesman says the poem was written using accounts from victims and

rapists. A multi`million pound redevelopment

Everyone wants to spend Christmas at home if they can, but one pensioner

:15:17.:15:19.

had almost become resigned to spending it elsewhere. Along with

:15:20.:15:23.

others, Des Malbon was forced out of his bungalow after flash floods

:15:24.:15:25.

swept through Southwell in Nottinghamshire five months ago.

:15:26.:15:29.

Since then he's been living in temporary accommodation. The good

:15:30.:15:32.

news is that with days to go he's moved back in, and now has plenty to

:15:33.:15:44.

celebrate. Quentin Rayner reports. In July, a trickle turned into a

:15:45.:15:49.

torrent, a months worth of rain fell in 80 minutes and they could not

:15:50.:15:55.

cope with the water. A group of pensioners bungalows was hit forcing

most to move out. But now they are returning, including wall Navy

veteran Des. Fantastic, there were no words for it. Wonderful. I will

another flood. Very very worried, in the back of my mind, it is not far

:16:41.:16:52.

away now. Water came over the hedge at the top. It's taken five months

:16:53.:16:57.

to dry out and repair the bungalows, too long, says Des. It is

:16:58.:17:01.

disgusting. I could have been back sooner. I am not looking at myself,

:17:02.:17:10.

the old folk around me. Des has turned 91 and will be dressing up as

Elvis at his birthday party. He has what he wanted to Christmas, being

back at home. Happy birthday and happy Christmas, Des. Over to the

It is a massive week at Leicester City, three really important games

football in focus. I have had a baby girl, three months old, the best

:19:16.:19:20.

a close`knit bunch here. I am enjoying it. And no lack of

:19:21.:19:26.

confidence at head of three huge fixtures. What is the best of the

:19:27.:19:38.

matches? Six points would be nice. Nottingham Forest go into a home

:19:39.:19:41.

game with Ipswich tomorrow in fifth spot, eight points off the top.

Manager Billy Davies met with the chairman this week to discuss

:19:45.:19:47.

January targets and say despite suggestions on social media of

:19:48.:19:50.

problems behind the scenes he and the chairman have a great

:19:51.:20:06.

relationship. One change kit created a fuss because it was a shade of

:20:07.:20:10.

red. And the one they're wearing against Charlton at the weekend?

:20:11.:20:13.

Well, it definitely reminds us of something.

:20:14.:20:24.

You can see the link straightaway, the club have gone out of their way

:20:25.:20:32.

to embrace it and have fun with it. It really doesn't matter what Derby

:20:33.:20:37.

County wear, look at the record, only lost once and a Steve McClaren.

:20:38.:20:45.

The only danger is overconfidence. Feet on the ground, focus and

:20:46.:20:51.

concentrate. Make sure we do it on Saturday.

:20:52.:20:54.

Heroes are nothing without balloons, that part is played by Charlton

Montpellier on Sunday in the Heineken Cup ` a victory would be a

Centre will host a pre`Wimbledon tournament from 2015 onwards. Great

as a warm up tournament. And finally from me good luck to a

really top man. Colin Magee from Burbage in Leicestershire has given

:23:10.:23:12.

up nearly 50 years to volunteering, getting thousands of young people

into sailing. He is our BBC East Midlands Sport Unsung hero 2013

Unsung 0 contention to win the National

Unsung Hero Award at the BBC Sports Personality event this weekend.

I have met him, he is a great guy, and of course hope he scoops the

:23:29.:23:35.

title! Leicester played host to a visitor

:23:36.:23:38.

today who became famous floating around many miles above planet

:23:39.:23:42.

Earth. Yes, retired NASA astronaut Chris Hadfield was at the University

:23:43.:23:45.

of Leicester visiting the Space Research Centre. He became an

:23:46.:23:48.

internet sensation earlier this year with his series of videos about life

:23:49.:23:51.

on the International Space Station. Our reporter Navtej Johal went to

:23:52.:24:05.

meet him. Chris Hadfield here. One small video for him, one giant

:24:06.:24:11.

internet sensation for mankind. Chris was the first Canadian to walk

:24:12.:24:18.

in space and has orbited the planet 2500 times but these videos helped

:24:19.:24:22.

him become a social media phenomenon. He was at the space

:24:23.:24:27.

research Centre where he held a Q and A with some lucky students. It

:24:28.:24:34.

was a nice interaction, to see their studies and the areas they are

:24:35.:24:38.

becoming expert in and to increase my own understanding through their

:24:39.:24:45.

eyes. Until I was 12, I wanted to be an astronaut. Incredible. I am

:24:46.:24:50.

presenting in front of one of my biggest heroes. The most unusual

:24:51.:24:55.

thing on a space station is adapting to the fact you are weightless. You

:24:56.:25:00.

get so used to flying to touching something with your finger and

:25:01.:25:06.

flying across the room and moving effortlessly, you are adapted to

:25:07.:25:11.

having a superpower. What advice do you have two young and old to

:25:12.:25:16.

achieve becoming an astronaut? Physical fitness, you have to be in

:25:17.:25:21.

shape, and advanced technical education and we need people who

:25:22.:25:24.

have proven ability to learn complicated things as

:25:25.:25:27.

decision`making, proven ability to make decisions and stick with them,

:25:28.:25:32.

especially when the consequences matter. Wise words from a man who

:25:33.:25:37.

once said he wasn't destined to become an astronaut, he turned

:25:38.:25:44.

himself into one. What a bloke. I would love to fly.

the west and then the rain will eventually arrive to end the

generally dry on Sunday with some lovely sunshine, I will join you.
