With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. This

:00:16.:00:20.

weekend's storm has left a temple in Leicester almost in ruins. The gable

:00:21.:00:26.

end collapsed and a third of the roof was destroyed by the lightning

:00:27.:00:29.

and strong winds. Just an hour beforehand, the temple had been

:00:30.:00:45.

packed with worshippers. Today, this was the damage caused.

:00:46.:00:54.

The entire area was illuminated by the flash of lightning, and at that

:00:55.:00:58.

time, it must have hit the building and the wall and roof of blown off.

:00:59.:01:06.

The total cost of the damage would be about ?250,000, but if the

:01:07.:01:11.

lightning have struck an hour earlier, the human cost would have

:01:12.:01:16.

been a lot greater. Since yesterday, I have been very emotional. You care

:01:17.:01:25.

about the community. As the Temple tries to cope with the destruction,

:01:26.:01:30.

not far away, the residents are coming to terms with what they

:01:31.:01:34.

described as a mini tornado. It was a disaster scene. All over the road,

:01:35.:01:43.

it was like a horror movie. I was gutted. The people on the street say

:01:44.:01:51.

this storm lasted no longer than 20 minutes in total but it would take

:01:52.:01:55.

months to clean up its mess. An area of woodland has been

:01:56.:01:58.

cordoned off by police after the discovery of a bone that's believed

:01:59.:02:02.

to be human. The discovery in woodland near Papplewick in

:02:03.:02:05.

Nottinghamshire was made by a dog`walker. Forensic tests are being

:02:06.:02:09.

carried out. Police will then decide if it's a a criminal matter or an

:02:10.:02:12.

archaeological concern. Police investigating a death in

:02:13.:02:15.

Hinckley have charged a man with murder. Police officers were called

:02:16.:02:20.

to Factory Road in the town on Friday after reports of an assault

:02:21.:02:23.

and a woman falling from a first floor window with a baby. A

:02:24.:02:26.

31`year`old man will appear before magistrates in Loughborough

:02:27.:02:28.

tomorrow. Drugs experts in the East Midlands

:02:29.:02:31.

testing legal highs are warning they're coming across mind`changing

:02:32.:02:37.

chemicals never seen before. In some cases, illegal and dangerous

:02:38.:02:39.

substances are being found in legal`high products.

:02:40.:02:50.

They are known as legal highs, but experts call them new psychoactive

:02:51.:02:56.

substances. We take more in the UK than anywhere else in Europe. Karin

:02:57.:03:03.

is 20 and from Derbyshire. Since first legal high experience she has

:03:04.:03:08.

had plenty more. I had one bad experience where I thought I would

:03:09.:03:15.

die. He was zoning out. You're not thinking anything. When it goes

:03:16.:03:20.

wrong, hospital toxicologists have to find out what patients have

:03:21.:03:24.

taken. If we don't know what these compounds are, it's very difficult

:03:25.:03:29.

for clinicians to give the correct treatment. Unfortunately, we are

:03:30.:03:34.

seeing these cases too late. Legal highs are available on the Internet

:03:35.:03:38.

and in other places. The government will announce in the spring how it

:03:39.:03:42.

plans to deal with the trade. See more of Sarah's investigation on

:03:43.:03:45.

tomorrow night's Inside Out for the East Midlands. That's here on BBC

:03:46.:03:48.

One at 7.30pm. Onto football, the draw that's just

:03:49.:03:52.

been made means Nottingham Forest will meet either Sheffield United or

:03:53.:03:55.

Fulham in the fifth round of the FA Cup if they win their replay at

:03:56.:03:59.

Preston. Meanwhile, in the Championship, Leicester City

:04:00.:04:01.

stretched their lead at the top. With that and yesterday's action

:04:02.:04:10.

here's Mark Shardlow. A storm hit the stadium just before

:04:11.:04:15.

kick`off. Thunder, lightning, hail, rain and wind but the ground just

:04:16.:04:21.

about held it together. A storm that is Leicester City. This was the club

:04:22.:04:31.

record's seventh successive win. The second was a thunderous header. A

:04:32.:04:37.

comfortable win for the league leaders. Derby County seem to be

:04:38.:04:40.

doing well at Blackburn. The home side, though, went ahead at the 47th

:04:41.:04:50.

minute. Another lovely goal from Patrick Bamford made it 1`1. There

:04:51.:05:01.

was a day huge at Knott County. Mansfield town came back from 2`1 to

:05:02.:05:03.

get a point at home to Wycombe. We have had a bit of everything so

:05:04.:05:22.

far today. An awful lot of rain. It could be even more interesting. Some

:05:23.:05:27.

of these showers have the potential to turn wintry. A little bit of a

:05:28.:05:31.

dusting of snow first thing on Monday morning, particularly on high

:05:32.:05:38.

ground. It's very unlikely to be disruptive but you might know it is

:05:39.:05:42.

there. A very icy start on Monday. Further showers on the way but lots

:05:43.:05:47.

of dry weather in there, too. You will notice how cold it has got as

:05:48.:05:52.

well. We have got more wet weather and cold weather to come and more

:05:53.:05:56.

wintry stuff as we go through the week.

:05:57.:06:02.

Until then, plenty more news on our website. Bye-bye.

:06:03.:06:07.

Good evening. will keep going through the nights

:06:08.:06:12.

tonight and as the air turns colder,

:06:13.:06:17.

tonight and as the air turns wintry. A mixture of sleet and snow

:06:18.:06:21.

leaving us with the risk advice The band of rain has cleared his
