Now the news in the East Midlands, I'm Jo Healey, good evening. An

estimated quarter of a million shoppers were searching for Boxing

:00:21.:00:23.

Day bargains today in our biggest retail centres. Queues formed early

:00:24.:00:27.

in Derby, Leicester and Nottingham, and some shops were predicting their

:00:28.:00:31.

busiest trading day of the year, as John Hess reports.

:00:32.:00:40.

Looking for a bargain, this was Nottingham's Victoria Centre, as

:00:41.:00:43.

shoppers showed little post`Christmas retail fatigue in

:00:44.:00:47.

hunting for that deal. Is it worth coming into the sales? Gasquet.

:00:48.:00:51.

There are lots of things in the shops that are not online. `` yeah.

:00:52.:00:59.

We are from New Zealand and we are by all of our winter clothes. We

need these things. I am tight all year round normally! We were

:01:27.:01:34.

predicting 85,000 shoppers through the door and it is more like 90,000.

:01:35.:01:38.

So is 0 the door and it is more like 90,000.

:01:39.:01:40.

So is this an indication that the retail sector is showing signs of

:01:41.:01:45.

recovery? There are green shoots and it looks more positive and feels

:01:46.:01:49.

more positive now within retail, so I am hoping for a good year.

:01:50.:01:54.

Tonight, we tell experts are number crunching today's figures and there

is a collective sense of relief, because compared to this time last

Police are investigating a fire which destroyed a cafe and shisha

:02:07.:02:10.

bar in Derby. Fire crews spent two hours tackling the flames, which

:02:11.:02:13.

engulfed the Riverside Cafe in the Chester Green area of the city. The

:02:14.:02:17.

alarm was raised in the early hours of Christmas Day and the cause isn't

:02:18.:02:22.

yet known. More than 100 young people are now

:02:23.:02:25.

volunteering at one of our hospital Trusts. The teenagers, who are from

:02:26.:02:30.

six different schools, work at the Royal Derby and London Road

Community Hospitals. Nursing staff say their help is invaluable, as

Angelina Socci reports. These students have been

:02:43.:02:45.

volunteering for the past year at the Royal Derby Hospital. For two

in health care and it is really good experience to talk to the patients

:03:07.:03:10.

and have that interaction you don't necessarily get in your day`to`day

:03:11.:03:14.

life. But it is not just the volunteers who are benefiting. They

:03:15.:03:20.

are finding it very beneficial they have somebody to just chat with them

:03:21.:03:23.

and they are getting a better insight into a younger person's life

:03:24.:03:29.

as well, from the point of view of the patients. Sometimes our

but cannot do for as long as we would like. `` at. And recently,

:03:41.:03:49.

nurses and volunteers have recently had their work recognised for their

:03:50.:03:51.

compassionate care. Onto football, and the results from

now, with Sara. Good evening. We will start to see

developing out in the Atlantic and is now starting to work its way in,

:04:25.:04:28.

increasing winds and pushing through this band of rain as well. It will

:04:29.:04:35.

be heavy at times but will pick up a bit as it travels eastwards. The

brightness in between and although there is a small amount of rain

:04:51.:04:53.

around on Saturday, the rest of the weekend is not bad.

:04:54.:04:57.

That it for now. I'll be back at 10.15pm with more from the East

Midlands. Have a good evening. Hello there, most of us have had a
