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

:00:00.:00:11.

Tonight: The disabled twin girls who've missed months of schooling.

:00:12.:00:20.

One option is a school a mile away but they would have to get there by

:00:21.:00:25.

wheelchair. We would have to do this every day in the cold and the

:00:26.:00:31.

brain, it is not a solution. Also tonight, the murder of Rosie May

:00:32.:00:37.

Storrie, her killer loses his final appeal.

:00:38.:00:42.

Plus, no new cash for a railway built in the 1940s, the 1840s.

:00:43.:00:49.

And, why Paul Smith thinks dyslexia is a plus point on a CV.

:00:50.:00:54.

We are very curious, we don't follow the crowd. Anyone who is looking for

:00:55.:00:59.

a creative member of staff, here we are!

:01:00.:01:06.

Good evening. First, tonight, the ten`year`old

:01:07.:01:14.

twins who, their parents say, have missed out on months of schooling.

:01:15.:01:18.

The girls both have disabilities, and need to be assessed by the

:01:19.:01:23.

council. The family have been waiting since last June for some

:01:24.:01:26.

kind of decision, but they're still waiting. There may be places at a

:01:27.:01:29.

mainstream school over a mile from home, but the girls would have to

:01:30.:01:33.

travel there in their wheelchairs, because the council won't fund

:01:34.:01:35.

special transport. Jo Healey reports.

:01:36.:01:46.

Their first day yesterday, ten years marked by surgery. Two years ago,

:01:47.:01:55.

the underwent a pioneering operation on their spines. Last June, they

:01:56.:01:59.

moved from Birmingham to Derby. Since then, that concern has not

:02:00.:02:03.

been just their health but their education. My favourite subject is

:02:04.:02:15.

maths and English at school. And my friends. I miss going back to

:02:16.:02:20.

school. They are highly dependent. We have been struggling throughout

:02:21.:02:24.

and haven't been able to get any schooling, home education, it has

:02:25.:02:29.

been uphill. Derby City Council has a school in mind. The family say it

:02:30.:02:34.

is a mile from their home. The council will not give them special

:02:35.:02:39.

transport. Their wheelchairs won't fit 0

transport. Their wheelchairs won't fit in a 0

:02:40.:02:39.

transport. Their wheelchairs won't fit in a car. They are prone to

:02:40.:02:45.

infection, they are very weak anyway. We are worried they will end

:02:46.:02:50.

up in hospital again and if we have to do this every day in the cold and

:02:51.:02:55.

rain... He said the council doesn't want them to have their electric

:02:56.:02:59.

chairs at school. How much do you need your wheelchairs with you? We

:03:00.:03:06.

need our school `` our chairs. I can't stand, my legs hurt. If you

:03:07.:03:13.

walk, your legs hurt. We can walk a little bit but we have to get back

:03:14.:03:19.

into our chairs. I am really worried in terms of safety for my daughters.

:03:20.:03:25.

I am frustrated as to why they have been out of school for so long.

:03:26.:03:30.

Today, they set off to school for their first assessment. Before

:03:31.:03:34.

long, they had to turn back, one of the chairs have broken down.

:03:35.:03:38.

Jo Healey is with us now. Jo, what are Derby City Council saying about

:03:39.:03:42.

this tonight? In the past hour, we have finally

:03:43.:03:47.

had a statement from the council, from the Director of learning and

:03:48.:03:53.

inclusion. She says since the family moved to Derby, they have worked to

:03:54.:03:58.

secure a school place and have found a good local school to provide for

:03:59.:04:04.

the needs of the children. She said the family have been encouraged to

:04:05.:04:09.

apply for help with travel, transport, but that will begin with

:04:10.:04:15.

being reimbursed for fuel. Those heavy wheelchairs can't fit into

:04:16.:04:22.

their car. The council says it puts the needs of children first and

:04:23.:04:26.

works with parents to ensure their needs are met consistently and

:04:27.:04:30.

fairly. What they are not giving is a date for when the girls can

:04:31.:04:32.

finally start school. The father of a Lincolnshire man who

:04:33.:04:38.

murdered 10`year`old Rosie May Storrie has vowed to fight on to

:04:39.:04:42.

clear his son's name. Paul Smith was found guilty of suffocating Rosie

:04:43.:04:45.

May at a Christmas party in Leicestershire in 2003. High He's

:04:46.:04:48.

now lost his latest appeal against his conviction and sentence. Amy

:04:49.:04:49.

Harris reports. Rosie May Storrie, age nine, filmed

:04:50.:05:06.

at home in 2002, with her pet rabbit. A year later, she would be

:05:07.:05:12.

dead. Rosie Mabe was killed at a Christmas party at this house in

:05:13.:05:17.

Normanton near Grantham by another guest. 17`year`old Paul Smith. He

:05:18.:05:22.

was convicted of suffocating her, and sentenced to 14 years in jail.

:05:23.:05:29.

He has always denied murder, and he has previously attempted to change

:05:30.:05:33.

the verdict. Today, it was announced the Court of Appeal refused an

:05:34.:05:39.

appeal against his conviction. It is welcome news for Rosie May's family.

:05:40.:05:45.

Finally, it means we can get on with our lives and go forward in a

:05:46.:05:49.

positive way. This man is quite clearly dangerous. We hope that he

:05:50.:05:58.

will be dealt with in the right way going forward. A decision that can't

:05:59.:06:05.

be reversed. But Paul Smith's father says the fight to clear his son's

:06:06.:06:10.

name will go on. One of the thoughts was to go back to the criminal cases

:06:11.:06:15.

is a huge miscarriage of justice. I will continue 0

Their way of giving other young people the future that Rosie May was

:06:47.:06:47.

denied. A 71`year old`woman was airlifted to

:06:48.:06:54.

hospital, after a bus and tractor crash in a Leicestershire village.

:06:55.:06:59.

Witnesses say a single`decker bus collided with a tractor, before

:07:00.:07:02.

smashing into a wall on North Street in Rothley this morning. Three other

:07:03.:07:05.

people were taken to hospital as a precaution. The road had to be

:07:06.:07:08.

closed, while emergency services rescued the woman, who had serious

:07:09.:07:10.

leg injuries. The bus was quite well lodged in the

wall. 0 0 The bus was quite well lodged in the

stepped onto the bus, the bus was in a good mess.

:07:31.:07:31.

There's been a sharp rise in the number of homeless women in

:07:32.:07:36.

Nottinghamshire. A two`week long survey, carried out last year, found

:07:37.:07:39.

617 homeless people in the county, which included 250 women. That's a

:07:40.:07:42.

rise of 10% in three years. The survey also found one in five people

:07:43.:07:46.

had been asked to leave home by their parents, with the same number

:07:47.:07:49.

suffering from mental health problems.

:07:50.:07:51.

A school that was forced to close today, after pupils came down with

what's thought to be norovirus, will open again tomorrow. Diseworth

:08:09.:08:19.

forecast. And there are warnings of a wintry

:08:20.:08:27.

blast. We are in for the coldest day of the

:08:28.:08:32.

winter this week. The big question is, will we finally be seeing some

:08:33.:08:38.

of this? All the details later. We get a sneak preview of what will be

:08:39.:08:44.

inside Kim Richard III's visitor Centre in Leicester.

:08:45.:08:48.

The government has rejected calls for more cash to improve one of the

:08:49.:08:56.

region's main east`west rail links. A transport minister says there

:08:57.:09:00.

isn't a business case to justify it. That's despite lobbying by regional

:09:01.:09:05.

MPs and local councils. They claim the Castle Railway Line from

:09:06.:09:08.

Nottingham to Lincoln, via Newark, should be a top priority. Here's our

:09:09.:09:18.

political editor John Hess. Good evening. I have some railway

:09:19.:09:24.

figures. Ten years ago, the Newark Castle

:09:25.:09:26.

line carried 650,000 passengers. That's a lot.

:09:27.:09:31.

Last year, that figure had fallen to 350,000, almost half.

:09:32.:09:36.

So, is the Castle Line really a suitable case for investment when

:09:37.:09:37.

it's got a faster rival? The East Coast Main Line from Newark

:09:38.:09:49.

gets passengers into London in just over one hour and 22 minutes. It

:09:50.:09:54.

would take you just as long on the Castle Line from Newark to

:09:55.:09:58.

Nottingham, a third of the distance. The government is talking

:09:59.:10:04.

about North`South high speed rail, but it is cross country we need

:10:05.:10:09.

help. There are always too many people on it. If 0

:10:10.:10:10.

help. There are always too many people on it. If the trend was more

:10:11.:10:13.

frequent it would be better. The Castle Line opened in 1846 and is

:10:14.:10:21.

regarded as an important railway. Local politicians want new

:10:22.:10:25.

investment to cut journey times. We all want this to succeed, as far

:10:26.:10:32.

west as Nottingham. Last month, councillors lobbied MPs

:10:33.:10:41.

to upgrade the Castle Line. It has emerged that message has yet to

:10:42.:10:47.

reach a transport minister. The Trans `` the department has received

:10:48.:10:51.

no comment from the councils. We haven't seen a business case for

:10:52.:10:59.

proposed improvements. The councils say they are disappointed. The

:11:00.:11:04.

business case has been made. Maybe on the Castle Line, these things

:11:05.:11:07.

take much longer to arrive. John, how much money are we talking

:11:08.:11:12.

about? East Midlands councils, an umbrella

:11:13.:11:19.

organisation which punches its weight in Whitehall on behalf of the

:11:20.:11:25.

region, it reckons an investment of ?700,000 a year over three years,

:11:26.:11:31.

would help. To start cutting journey times. A big chunk of initially come

:11:32.:11:36.

from regional transport budgets, with the Department For Transport

:11:37.:11:40.

picking up the tab. There is a big problem. As we know, we have

:11:41.:11:47.

high`speed rail coming through, the electrification of the Midland Main

:11:48.:11:53.

line. As far as the department is concerned, the Castle Line is 0

:11:54.:11:55.

line. As far as the department is concerned, the Castle Line is not a

:11:56.:11:57.

priority. Which is where this political lobbying will have to go

:11:58.:11:58.

from here. Governors at a Leicester school will

:11:59.:12:07.

vote next week on whether to become the city's first secondary to

:12:08.:12:10.

convert to an academy. An application by Rushey Mead School

:12:11.:12:13.

has already been approved in principle by the government. If the

:12:14.:12:16.

plans go ahead, it would mean the school would move out of local

:12:17.:12:19.

authority control. The authorities in Nottinghamshire

:12:20.:12:22.

are trying to decide how to deal with waste in the future. A new deal

:12:23.:12:25.

could see 60,000 tonnes of rubbish sent to Yorkshire. More

:12:26.:12:28.

Nottinghamshire waste could also be sent to the Eastcroft incinerator in

:12:29.:12:31.

Nottingham. It will have spare capacity until 2017. Proposals

:12:32.:12:34.

suggest other rubbish may be taken to a processing plant in Sheffield.

:12:35.:12:44.

After eight years of planning, developers have submitted proposals

:12:45.:12:49.

to build 4,500 homes on farm land to the north east of Leicester. The

:12:50.:12:52.

?445 million project would see houses, schools, health care

:12:53.:12:55.

services and shops built here, near Hamilton and Thurmaston. The

:12:56.:13:00.

developers, Commercial Estates Group, say thousands of construction

:13:01.:13:03.

jobs will be created. But a local action group is campaigning to halve

:13:04.:13:07.

the number of homes planned for the area.

:13:08.:13:15.

This whole area, a beautiful corner of rural England, could be

agricultural land, and for the people who live here, we think

:13:30.:13:34.

transport problems will be huge because the infrastructure cannot

back. That was 0 Next: Don't let dyslexia hold you

:13:38.:13:40.

back. That was the message today from the world famous fashion

:13:41.:13:43.

designer Sir Paul Smith. At a special awareness`raising event at

:13:44.:13:46.

the University of Derby, Sir Paul told us his dyslexia had made him

:13:47.:13:48.

more creative. Signing one of his own designs in

:13:49.:14:00.

aid of a cause close to his heart. Sir Paul Smith is known for his

fashion brand. Closer to home, he is patron of the Nottingham `based

:14:08.:14:14.

dyslexia Association. I wish it was called something else... Instead of

:14:15.:14:17.

concentrating on the difficulties dyslexia can bring comic he believes

it helped him become a designer and sufferers are often more creative.

:14:32.:14:38.

message to employees at the event at the University of Derby, organised

pike undergraduates. Sarah has gone on to higher

:14:45.:14:48.

education despite being expelled from school. I was aggressive and

:14:49.:14:53.

unhappy but, finding out it was because I had dyslexia, it gave

:14:54.:14:57.

meaning and I knew why I was behaving like that.

:14:58.:15:00.

Since then, I have gone from strength to strength.

At two`day's event, dyslexic students were offered help. Sir Paul

:15:18.:15:22.

Smith said his biggest regret is his lack of education. He left school

:15:23.:15:28.

without qualifications. But it hasn't prevented him enjoying the

:15:29.:15:29.

sweet smell of success. He is great.
