shaking your head. That is horrible. That is all from the

:00:00.:00:11.

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

:00:12.:00:16.

Tonight: Good news on jobs. Bosses say our big fall in unemployment is

:00:17.:00:18.

unprecedented. New figures show we are leading the

:00:19.:00:22.

way. Is the economic recovery in the bad? Everyone seems more confident

:00:23.:00:30.

than last year. More smiles. Also, an inquest is told of the final

:00:31.:00:35.

moments of a woman who died on a crossed channel swim.

:00:36.:00:42.

Plus, a major coup for Donington Park. It is to become the

:00:43.:00:47.

headquarters for the world's first electric car racing Championships.

:00:48.:00:53.

And I will be getting used to life in the slow lane on England's

:00:54.:00:54.

shortest motorway. Welcome to Thursday's programme.

:00:55.:01:11.

First tonight, solid signs of strong economic recovery in the East

:01:12.:01:14.

Midlands. We've seen the biggest drop in unemployment of any region

:01:15.:01:17.

in the UK, according to official figures. One business leader says

:01:18.:01:20.

the fall in unemployment is unprecedented. Certainly, local

:01:21.:01:27.

firms are taking on more staff. But are they offering high`quality jobs?

:01:28.:01:29.

Here's our political editor John Hess.

:01:30.:01:36.

If you want to find out why the economy seems so bright in this

:01:37.:01:41.

region, you need to come to a place like this. This place likes

:01:42.:01:45.

mouldings `` makes mouldings for industry. It has taken on extra

:01:46.:01:52.

staff over the last six months and aims to take on an additional ten

:01:53.:01:56.

people over the next year. We service a number of different

:01:57.:02:00.

industries and we are seeing investments over the years of

:02:01.:02:03.

recession, they are starting to buy across all industries, from

:02:04.:02:09.

electrical to building. In the 0

:02:10.:02:09.

electrical to building. In the East Midlands, 149,000

:02:10.:02:14.

registered out of work. That is down 16% on the last quarter and 21.6%

:02:15.:02:20.

over the last year. We have never seen it on this scale before. We are

:02:21.:02:25.

seeing a combination of factors. There is real job growth and many

:02:26.:02:29.

companies are taking on additional people. We are also seeing the

:02:30.:02:33.

effects of Bennett reform so people are looking more vigorously for

:02:34.:02:37.

work. And the degree of people still remaining in training and education.

:02:38.:02:42.

Are these new jobs secure or just temporary? Most people are saying we

:02:43.:02:48.

will take someone on for one year, two years or on a temporary vacancy

:02:49.:02:54.

in order to work out how it goes. At Westminster today, one of our senior

:02:55.:02:57.

MPs questioned whether the economic upturn was at the real deal. We need

:02:58.:03:02.

to have a debate on real action given that under this employment no

:03:03.:03:09.

longer seems to be a root out of poverty `` under this government

:03:10.:03:13.

employment no longer seems to be a root out of poverty. Is the economic

:03:14.:03:20.

upturn reflected on the street? I feel better than I did a year or so

:03:21.:03:24.

ago. I feel my job specs have improved. Feeling quite confident. A

:03:25.:03:30.

little bit more secure. Financially, my wages have gone up. Overall, I

:03:31.:03:39.

think, yes, things are looking up. The changes to benefit payments may

:03:40.:03:43.

also have been a factor. But looking at the figures, there is no doubt

:03:44.:03:46.

our region economically is leading the way.

:03:47.:03:56.

Lucy Haynes is the regional head of the bosses' organisation the CBI and

:03:57.:03:59.

she's in our Leicester studio. Obviously, this is encouraging. Why

:04:00.:04:00.

are the latest 0 Obviously, this is encouraging. Why

:04:01.:04:02.

are the latest job numbers so good here in the East Midlands? I think

:04:03.:04:07.

one of the reasons for that is because of the diverse range of

:04:08.:04:10.

sectors that we have in the East Midlands. There has been talk about

:04:11.:04:16.

the rebalancing of the economy and I think perhaps we are starting to see

:04:17.:04:20.

that in the East Midlands. It really is good news. It is good news that

:04:21.:04:25.

we are seeing labour market recovery, we are seeing businesses

:04:26.:04:30.

take people on. There has been a huge dent in the levels of youth

:04:31.:04:34.

unemployment which is obviously really important. We have seen

:04:35.:04:40.

increasing levels of part`time employment and full`time employment.

:04:41.:04:46.

Really good signs. Is this a jobs recovery based on short`term

:04:47.:04:48.

contracts and low pay or are these good, sustainable jobs? There is

:04:49.:04:54.

nothing to suggest that. We are seeing increases in levels of

:04:55.:04:58.

part`time employment, but we are also seeing part time employed

:04:59.:05:04.

people going into full`time as well. I think one of the issues in the

:05:05.:05:08.

East Midlands is very much around productivity. That is the measure of

:05:09.:05:10.

output and time needed 0 productivity. That is the measure of

:05:11.:05:14.

output and time needed to do that. What we really need to see in the

:05:15.:05:18.

East Midlands is increased productivity. We need businesses

:05:19.:05:22.

selling more. We need to see them becoming more efficient. Then we

:05:23.:05:27.

will be able to see them pay their staff more and hopefully take on

:05:28.:05:30.

more people as well. Thank you very much.

:05:31.:05:40.

A court's been hearing about the final moments of a swimmer from

:05:41.:05:43.

Leicestershire who died while attempting to cross the English

:05:44.:05:46.

Channel. Susan Taylor died from swimming in the sea for long enough

:05:47.:05:49.

to make her heart stop. Helen Astle reports.

:05:50.:05:51.

Today her brother and parents came to the coroner 's court to hear

:05:52.:05:58.

answers. Why did she die? The 34`year`old had given up her job to

:05:59.:06:01.

start training to swim the channel in the hope of raising money for a

:06:02.:06:08.

charity. The challenge got under way in the early hours of the 14th of

:06:09.:06:14.

July last year. Then with just a mile to go update stopped. In

:06:15.:06:20.

distressing evidence, the court heard that she suddenly collapsed.

:06:21.:06:24.

Her brother a paramedic who was on the support boat following her

:06:25.:06:28.

described what happened. Susan was showing signs of fatigue, she kept

:06:29.:06:34.

going, but soon she was sick and she had to stop again. I told her to get

:06:35.:06:39.

out. Susan then lay on her back and seemingly became unconscious. She

:06:40.:06:42.

then rolled over onto her front and lay facedown in the seat motionless.

:06:43.:06:53.

`` in the C. David then helped to pull the one to the support boat.

:06:54.:06:59.

She wasn't breathing. She was airlifted to hospital but she died

:07:00.:07:02.

before she could be treated. Following her death, thousands of

:07:03.:07:07.

people donated money to the hospice, over ?100,000 has been raised. A

:07:08.:07:11.

representative from the charity spoke on behalf of the family. Susan

:07:12.:07:16.

was a wonderful person dedicated to helping those less fortunate than

:07:17.:07:19.

herself. It was a great comfort that Susan died trying to accomplish her

:07:20.:07:26.

childhood ambition in aid of such worthy causes. We have received

:07:27.:07:32.

support from many people. The coroner recorded a verdict of

:07:33.:07:40.

misadventure. He said that she was not undertaking the swim for glory,

:07:41.:07:44.

she was doing it because of her love for other people. She has probably

:07:45.:07:48.

achieved far more in her life than many of us can hope to.

:07:49.:07:55.

Still to come: Plugging a hole ` built during the industrial

:07:56.:07:58.

revolution, this canal's sprung a leak. Lots of them. Now it's been

:07:59.:08:01.

emptied so repair work can get under way.

:08:02.:08:09.

It has been an interesting day weather`wise. Heavy showers at

:08:10.:08:14.

times. The main concern over night is ice.

:08:15.:08:21.

Next tonight, some big news from Donington Park today. It's to become

:08:22.:08:27.

the multi`million pound headquarters for the world's first

:08:28.:08:37.

electric motor racing Championships. It's being hailed as a critical leap

:08:38.:08:40.

forward for the company which took over the running of the race track

:08:41.:08:44.

some three years ago. It secures the future of the track and promotes

:08:45.:08:47.

Britain as a leading innovator in energy`efficient cars. Sarah Teale

:08:48.:08:50.

has the full story. It has had a somewhat chequered past

:08:51.:08:53.

over the last few years but this is the exciting future for Donington

:08:54.:08:57.

Park. The circuit is to become the global headquarters for formula

:08:58.:09:08.

capital E. It is a game changer for the new company that took over in

:09:09.:09:12.

2010 and have been slowly rebuilding. A great programme of

:09:13.:09:16.

racing. It needed something like this to really kick ass into the

:09:17.:09:21.

bigger league and put Donington Park on the international map. With big

:09:22.:09:26.

money and big names like Richard Branson and Leonardo DiCaprio

:09:27.:09:30.

involved, Donington Park was up against ferocious worldwide

:09:31.:09:35.

competition. The fact is that Britain is the home of the worldwide

:09:36.:09:40.

motorsports industry. This is a great location. Next door to an

:09:41.:09:44.

international airport. The logistics partner is DHL. They are here. The

:09:45.:09:50.

motorway and railway is here. There is a good and well trained workforce

:09:51.:09:56.

in the area. This is an exciting new development in the world of

:09:57.:09:58.

motorsport. The cars will look very similar to the traditional ones we

:09:59.:10:04.

are used to seeing. They will be powered exclusively by electricity

:10:05.:10:10.

and capable of reaching speeds of up to 150 miles an hour. The races will

:10:11.:10:14.

start in September and take place around the streets of ten cities

:10:15.:10:20.

worldwide including London. The racing teams will also use the

:10:21.:10:24.

Donington Park circuit testing and development work on the racing cars

:10:25.:10:28.

which means the famous faces involved will be flying in to watch.

:10:29.:10:32.

It will be the case that Leonardo DiCaprio is bound to come and see

:10:33.:10:36.

how it is doing. I am sure that may well be quite a popular day in the

:10:37.:10:40.

district. There is no doubt this is a major coup for the Donington

:10:41.:10:46.

Park, placing it at the heart of a new vision for the future of the

:10:47.:10:54.

motor industry. The police in Derbyshire have asked

:10:55.:10:57.

a man to stop fundraising in the name of six children who died in a

:10:58.:11:01.

house fire started by their father Mick Philpott. The Catch Me When I

:11:02.:11:05.

Fall appeal was set up in the wake of the fire in 2012 to help other

:11:06.:11:09.

local children. But relatives of the Philpott children wanted it stopped

:11:10.:11:17.

from raising money in their name. In a statement, the police said they

:11:18.:11:20.

had investigated the way the appeal was being run and had found no

:11:21.:11:24.

wrongdoing. Even so, they've advised that no further money be collected.

:11:25.:11:26.

Mick Philpott, the children's mother, Mairead, and a family friend

:11:27.:11:30.

Paul Mosley are all serving prison sentences for manslaughter.

:11:31.:11:32.

New figures suggest crime in Nottinghamshire isn't falling as

:11:33.:11:35.

much as in other parts of the country. There's been a 1% drop in

:11:36.:11:39.

the number of reported offences last year, compared to a 10% fall across

:11:40.:11:43.

England and Wales. There was a large rise in shoplifting and sexual

:11:44.:11:46.

offences and 1,300 extra violent crimes in the county. Officers have

:11:47.:11:49.

blamed changes in the way crimes are collated and say people are also

:11:50.:12:04.

more confident about reporting them. An alcohol`free bar is opening up in

:12:05.:12:06.

the East Midlands. It's run by a charity that helps people

:12:07.:12:16.

with drink problems and has been given a grant of ?340,000 from the

:12:17.:12:20.

National Lottery. A Government survey suggests around one in eight

:12:21.:12:24.

people in our region never drink alcohol. The venue is also aimed at

:12:25.:12:27.

people who do, but fancy a change from a boozy night out.

:12:28.:12:30.

A stones throw from the Old Market Square, it looks like a club. If you

:12:31.:12:34.

arrive so that here, you will leave that way. There is not a drop of

:12:35.:12:39.

alcohol here. People are looking to be more healthy and everyone is more

:12:40.:12:45.

aware of addiction issues as well. Should more of us switch to alcohol

:12:46.:12:49.

free alternatives more often? In the East Midlands, one in five people

:12:50.:12:53.

were drinking at a level that increases the risk of damaging their

:12:54.:13:00.

health. 83,000 alcohol related hospital admissions were reported in

:13:01.:13:04.

2011 and 149 people died from alcohol`related causes. Jason told

:13:05.:13:09.

me drink was killing him until he quit nine years ago. He is one of

:13:10.:13:12.

the first to sample the alcohol free bar. It is ideal for Nottingham.

:13:13.:13:22.

People in recovery, it is ideal. People are getting more

:13:23.:13:26.

health`conscious and not going on mad benders like in the 80s and

:13:27.:13:32.

90s. Cheers. Plenty of media attention today, but will be public

:13:33.:13:35.

give it a second glance when it opens next week to estimate the

:13:36.:13:39.

people who hand out National Lottery money are convinced it is a good

:13:40.:13:42.

cause. They have granted over ?300,000 to the venture set up by a

:13:43.:13:50.

Nottingham drugs and alcohol charity. We have funded a project

:13:51.:13:54.

similar to this recently in Liverpool. That has shown success.

:13:55.:14:01.

With around 100 drink choices and alcohol free cocktails, they are

:14:02.:14:12.

hoping to shake up Nottingham's nightlife great idea.

:14:13.:14:17.

We will see if it catches on. Striking lecturers have accused

:14:18.:14:20.

their university of bullying them, by docking them a full day's salary

:14:21.:14:23.

for a two`hour strike. Staff at Nottingham Trent University took

:14:24.:14:26.

part in a national stoppage this morning over pay. But their managers

:14:27.:14:29.

have taken legal advice and say, along with 40 other universities,

:14:30.:14:32.

they are entitled to dock strikers a whole day's money, even though the

:14:33.:14:39.

walk`out only lasted two hours. We have members here today who I have

:14:40.:14:42.

not seen take industrial action before. I think it has angered our

:14:43.:14:46.

members sufficiently to force them to come out. They are being bullied,

:14:47.:14:52.

essentially. It is a democratically voted for strike and to say they

:14:53.:14:56.

will dock as the day's paper two hours is frankly disingenuous. ``

:14:57.:15:04.

the day's pay. Plans to revamp the main entrance to

:15:05.:15:07.

Nottingham's Victoria Centre have been approved. The design includes

:15:08.:15:09.

an extended glass entrance with lighting panels which change colour.

:15:10.:15:13.

The centre's owners say it's a key part of its ?40 million

:15:14.:15:15.

refurbishment which starts next month. The city council's already

:15:16.:15:18.

approved proposals for similar entrances at the Clock Tower and

:15:19.:15:20.

Glasshouse Street. A leaky pipe's a pain at the best of

:15:21.:15:25.

times. But a canal that's leaking is an entirely different kettle of

:15:26.:15:28.

fish. On the Erewash Canal in Nottinghamshire, a loch's been

:15:29.:15:30.

drained so repair work can get under way. While they're at it,

:15:31.:15:39.

they'll fix a set of lock gates and repair the brickwork. All part of a

:15:40.:15:42.

nationwide, ?45 million programme of canal repairs. Amy Harris reports.

:15:43.:15:48.

Stepping into the past, these workmen are storing and repairing

:15:49.:15:57.

this loch in Derbyshire. It dates back to the Industrial Revolution.

:15:58.:16:01.

Not surprisingly, it is in need of a face`lift and there is a fair bit to

:16:02.:16:06.

do. We have got a 250`year`old canal and we have got to keep it working.

:16:07.:16:11.

Each loch takes a bit of tender loving care. 0

:16:12.:16:11.

Each loch takes a bit of tender loving care. Pointing, brickwork

:16:12.:16:17.

repairs. It is required to keep the canal in tiptop condition. This is

:16:18.:16:24.

one of 100 lochs across the country undergoing repair work for the

:16:25.:16:28.

benefit of the 33,000 bows that pass through them every year. `` boats.

:16:29.:16:34.

It will cost ?50,000 and take up to four weeks. But while the loch is

:16:35.:16:43.

closed, to boats, it is open to the public on Sunday. You would not

:16:44.:16:49.

believe it, but their role people living here who did not know the

:16:50.:16:54.

canal and the loch was here. It will be eye opening. I hope they come and

:16:55.:16:58.

have a look. It is part of their heritage. The loch will be open from

:16:59.:17:03.

10am until 4pm. Read chance to see the of engineering from the past and

:17:04.:17:11.

the work to protect its the future `` a red chance.

:17:12.:17:18.

Still to come: Is this the world's worst motorway?

:17:19.:17:22.

It's just one mile long, doesn't go anywhere and the roadworks are

:17:23.:17:33.

never`ending. Full story later. Talking about never`ending...

:17:34.:17:38.

Colin, take no notice! It gets harsher and harsher.

:17:39.:17:41.

I will get on with it. First, it's not until March, but the

:17:42.:17:45.

build up to the Derby`Forest match has started already. Today Derby

:17:46.:17:47.

confirmed they're changing where away fans will sit at the iPro

:17:48.:17:51.

Stadium from next season. Rams supporters will be behind both goals

:17:52.:17:55.

and the away fans moved to a corner. Interestingly, the club will trial

:17:56.:17:58.

the plans at that Forest game. Natalie Jackson explains.

:17:59.:18:04.

From next season, the 0 Natalie Jackson explains.

:18:05.:18:05.

From next season, the South stand here at the iPro Stadium becomes a

:18:06.:18:15.

home fans only area. It means Rams supporters can sit behind both

:18:16.:18:19.

goals. 0 supporters can sit behind both

:18:20.:18:21.

goals. The away fans will be tucked away over there in the south`east

:18:22.:18:27.

corner. Chief Executive says it gives the head coach Steve McClaren

:18:28.:18:33.

home advantage. Certainly, Steve is behind it. For him and the players

:18:34.:18:37.

to come out to an arena where all of the fans behind the team is

:18:38.:18:41.

fantastic. It will help spur them on. Chief operating officer John

:18:42.:18:52.

Vickers has widely consulted fans. We sometimes have 4500 away fans

:18:53.:18:58.

hide the South stand goal making noise. `` behind. We feel we are

:18:59.:19:10.

giving away the home advantage. Since we left the baseball ground,

:19:11.:19:15.

we have not had a central area of the home supporters. I think it will

:19:16.:19:20.

be much better. We have always wanted to be behind the goal and

:19:21.:19:24.

push them into the corner. We have spoken about it further number

:19:25.:19:28.

years. The club will trial the plans at the coming East Midlands derby

:19:29.:19:36.

giving Forest and allocation of 2700 tickets. I see no point in entering

:19:37.:19:45.

into a tit`for`tat exercise and giving them 0

:19:46.:19:46.

into a tit`for`tat exercise and giving them 2000 and leaving 700

:19:47.:19:51.

unsold seats. The game with Forest is on the 22nd of March.

:19:52.:19:57.

Other news form the Rams, Derby have signed Nuneaton goalkeeper Kelle

:19:58.:20:00.

Roos on a two`and`a`half`year deal for an undisclosed fee.

:20:01.:20:05.

Leicester City Manager Nigel Pearson has confirmed they've turned down a

:20:06.:20:08.

second bid from Fulham for young defender Liam Moore. Moore has

:20:09.:20:13.

impressed with his performances at the heart of the Leicester defence

:20:14.:20:17.

this season. Pearson says as far as he's aware he's the only player the

:20:18.:20:20.

club have received official bids for this January. And he's hoping

:20:21.:20:23.

attention from the Premier League isn't a distraction. I think there

:20:24.:20:30.

is always the danger when their respective Laois and surrounding

:20:31.:20:33.

players' future is that it can have an adverse effect. `` when there is

:20:34.:20:46.

speculation. Hopefully it will not have a negative effect.

:20:47.:20:50.

Nottingham Forest have sent striker Ishmael Miller back to Yeovil on

:20:51.:20:53.

loan until the end of the season. He's already spent a month there

:20:54.:20:56.

scoring three goals. Finally from me, the Nottingham

:20:57.:20:59.

woman who took up Brazilian jujitsu as a student and now she says she's

:21:00.:21:03.

love my life 0 English, he has got a real star. I

:21:40.:21:43.

love my life and I love jujitsu being a big part of my life. Vanessa

:21:44.:21:49.

is a special girl. She is one of the most dedicated students I have over

:21:50.:21:55.

here. Vanessa only picked up the sport four years ago. Already, she

:21:56.:22:00.

is a world champion at purple belt, beating opponents who have more

:22:01.:22:02.

experience and who are often much bigger. Nice. I have had people say

:22:03.:22:11.

to me, you feel like a 100 kilo guy but you are 50 kilos. What is going

:22:12.:22:18.

on? That is a nice feeling. But being the best requires a relentless

:22:19.:22:23.

training schedule and Vanessa has to fit it all around her job as a home

:22:24.:22:29.

carer. She has to do her overnight shifts and she goes all the way

:22:30.:22:32.

through the night and the next morning she is here training. It is

:22:33.:22:33.

a contrast. One day I 0 morning she is here training. It is

:22:34.:22:38.

a contrast. One day I would like to do jujitsu completely full`time. If

:22:39.:22:44.

that is what I have to do to reach my goal is, then that is what I will

:22:45.:22:48.

do. Her goal this week is a brown belt title at the European

:22:49.:22:50.

Championships in Lisbon. That would leave her just one below the top

:22:51.:22:54.

division of lap belt and her ambition does not end there ``

blackbelt. I am going to the moon. The sky is not the limit for me. I

:23:01.:23:05.

am going beyond that. I want to be the best.

:23:06.:23:11.

All that in just four years. Remarkable performance from her and

:23:12.:23:18.

she is really going along way. Just shows what is positive thought

:23:19.:23:22.

does. You have to believe you will get to the top.

:23:23.:23:25.

Don't mess with Vanessa! The shortest motorway in England has

:23:26.:23:28.

opened in Leicestershire. It's just one`mile long and I suspect the

:23:29.:23:32.

chances of getting stuck in a traffic jam are pretty low.

:23:33.:23:36.

I think you are right there! So, what exactly is it used for and

:23:37.:23:40.

where is it? Our reporter Eleanor Garnier's been finding out.

:23:41.:23:44.

Motorways are of course the driving, not for walking. You might

:23:45.:23:49.

think I am taking a bit of a risk. If this was a real motorway, you

:23:50.:23:53.

would be right. Luckily for me, it isn't. Which works here. I am going

:23:54.:24:00.

to find out what he does. `` Richard. This is a one mile stretch

manager for the Highways Agency. Here we do a lot of operational

:24:14.:24:19.

training in a safe environment where we can replicate the motorway

:24:20.:24:24.

without having to affect the public by closing motorways. Highways

:24:25.:24:29.

officers from across the country come to the motorway to do their

:24:30.:24:36.

training, whether it is towing vehicles, putting up screens around

:24:37.:24:40.

accident or even organising the traffic, it can all be done here. It

:24:41.:24:45.

allows us to develop our skills in a safe environment and also learn from

:24:46.:24:49.

our mistakes. We are constantly changing and learning new skills.

:24:50.:24:53.

Coming to a facility like this gives us the opportunity to learn more

Officers still need to do some training on a real motorway, but 90%

:25:05.:25:08.

of the courses the new staff can be done here. While they get on with

:25:09.:25:12.

their training, I am going to relax in the slow lane. Or should I save

the highways workers, they do a vital job.

:25:33.:25:35.

You don't think about them having to practice doing stuff like that but

:25:36.:25:39.

it is quite obvious. Dangerous on the motorways,

:25:40.:25:44.

especially when it is wet like today.

:25:45.:25:49.

Despite the fact we had such a wet start to the day and we certainly

:25:50.:25:54.

saw some pretty lively showers as well with the sky is really
