Peter, thank you. That's all from the BBC

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight, joy and relief as Bombardier lands the ?1 billion

:00:09.:00:18.

Crossrail contract. This order should secure the future of this

:00:19.:00:22.

factory for five years and provide a bumper payday for the whole East

:00:23.:00:29.

Midlands economy. The Leicestershire Theatre at the centre of a police

:00:30.:00:33.

child sex investigation. And complaints arising about these `

:00:34.:00:37.

websites which check applications online but come with a hefty price

:00:38.:00:45.

tag. And former Tiger Matt Hanson makes it a special day for the new

:00:46.:00:49.

school. These children deserve everything they get. It is great to

:00:50.:00:56.

have, especially a facility they can access. Good evening. First tonight,

:00:57.:01:09.

the best possible news for Derby and its proud history of train`making.

:01:10.:01:15.

Bombardier, based in the city, has won a contract worth ?1 billion. It

:01:16.:01:22.

will help to safeguard the jobs of hundreds of staff who work for the

:01:23.:01:23.

company 0 hundreds of staff who work for the

:01:24.:01:25.

company and hopefully help to provide work for the engineers of

:01:26.:01:28.

the future. Our reporter, Simon Hare, has spent the day at the

:01:29.:01:32.

factory and joins us now. Simon, it sounds big but just how significant

:01:33.:01:42.

is this order? Well, if you consider that each of these vehicles behind

:01:43.:01:49.

me costs about ?1 million and this order is for 600 of them and when

:01:50.:01:53.

you add the associated costs, this is worth ?1 billion. An incredible

:01:54.:02:02.

boost to the East Midlands economy. It has received massive welcome

:02:03.:02:12.

across politicians. On Twitter, Derby North, Chris Williamson,

:02:13.:02:14.

tweeted that the long campaign to secure the Crossrail contract had

:02:15.:02:17.

been successful. Pauline Latham, the Conservative MP for Mid`Derbyshire,

:02:18.:02:20.

said it was brilliant news. And even the Prime Minister was on Twitter

:02:21.:02:24.

earlier saying it was great news for Bombardier and Derby. Derby is a

:02:25.:02:33.

city very proud of its railway heritage. You do not have to look

:02:34.:02:40.

too closely to see that Derby is a proud railway town. It might be a

:02:41.:02:45.

city that employs more in aerospace and the automotive industry but

:02:46.:02:50.

there probably would not be here if it had not been for the engineering

:02:51.:02:56.

know`how already here. 1500 people work at Bombardier. The current

:02:57.:03:01.

order book lasts until next year. But news of today's order guarantees

:03:02.:03:08.

work for the next five years. This is a walk`through vehicle, similar

:03:09.:03:14.

to Crossrail. Kevin has been here 27 years and says there is relief among

:03:15.:03:18.

the workers that they know their future is secure. There was

:03:19.:03:23.

apprehension about not knowing. The uncertainty is the biggest fear and

:03:24.:03:28.

as soon as they got that news, everybody was jumping for joy. The

:03:29.:03:34.

?1 billion order will provide trains for the new Crossrail route. It goes

:03:35.:03:39.

through and under London. Ahmadi able make the trains which carry

:03:40.:03:45.

passengers on the line. Today, the Secretary of State for transport

:03:46.:03:50.

dropped in to see where the investment was going. He denied it

:03:51.:03:55.

was purely political after criticism three years ago when an even bigger

:03:56.:04:01.

order went to a German company. They have won this because the workforce

:04:02.:04:06.

put together an excellent deal. They won this overwhelmingly. It is great

:04:07.:04:11.

news for manufacturing in the East Midlands. We have invested ?20

:04:12.:04:18.

million of our own money on this platform, the core technology, and

:04:19.:04:24.

we did that without any order. This year is the 175th anniversary of

:04:25.:04:29.

train building in Derby, which has provided work for generations.

:04:30.:04:34.

Today's announcement means that although the designs might have

:04:35.:04:37.

changed, it remains an industry and a career for the future. Yes, there

:04:38.:04:45.

was a time when young people here would choose if they were going to

:04:46.:04:49.

work for Rolls`Royce or the railway but in reality, few jobs coming up

:04:50.:04:56.

in the railways. But there will be many more apprenticeship schemes as

:04:57.:04:59.

part of this and I am joined by Angela Dean, the head of engineering

:05:00.:05:04.

at the University of Derby. Great news? Absolutely great news. And

:05:05.:05:11.

also for the new university technical College which starts in

:05:12.:05:15.

two years and will take those very young people into apprenticeship

:05:16.:05:19.

schemes. As well as students, we have 800 students in Derby studying

engineering and they are in different areas 0

engineering and they are in different areas like manufacturing,

:05:26.:05:27.

production, electronic engineering and mechanical engineering and they

:05:28.:05:35.

have opportunities behind us. They have ruled out railways? ! It was

:05:36.:05:39.

very difficult to persuade people to move into this industry because

:05:40.:05:42.

people were training in this industry for a long time but that

:05:43.:05:46.

has changed in the last few years so it is not only Bombardier, it is the

:05:47.:05:52.

supply chain that has lots of opportunities for people to enter

:05:53.:05:55.

those areas. Derby has a largest concentration of supply companies

:05:56.:06:01.

that feed into this? Absolutely, over 200 companies in Derby and it

:06:02.:06:05.

is one of the places that has the highest proportion of advanced

:06:06.:06:10.

technology jobs, 12%. Better than anywhere else. That means there is a

:06:11.:06:15.

great opportunity for people in the East Midlands and our students to

:06:16.:06:21.

enter those areas. Many thanks. Great 0

:06:22.:06:21.

enter those areas. Many thanks. Great news for the engineers of the

:06:22.:06:24.

future but also from any of the workers here who we have been

:06:25.:06:28.

talking to. They are pleased they have worked for the next five years.

:06:29.:06:33.

All thanks to this ?1 billion contract. Bombardier back on track.

:06:34.:06:39.

Coming up later: The fast track to Olympic glory. The Winter Games in

:06:40.:06:42.

Sochi haven't even started but Nottingham speed skater John Eley is

:06:43.:06:51.

already bursting with pride. Leicestershire Police are

:06:52.:06:53.

investigating allegations of child sex offences connected to a theatre

:06:54.:06:59.

in Hinckley. Two men have been arrested. Meanwhile, the local

:07:00.:07:03.

council isn't issuing any licences for children to take part in shows

:07:04.:07:07.

and the police are appealing for any information that could help their

:07:08.:07:11.

inquiries. The officer leading the investigation has described it as

:07:12.:07:14.

complex and delicate. Helen Astle reports. Performances have been

:07:15.:07:24.

staged here for more than 40 years and now the theatre itself is under

:07:25.:07:30.

the spotlight. Last rubber, police started investigating allegations of

:07:31.:07:35.

children being sexually abused. They do not know how many victims there

:07:36.:07:42.

are. We have arrested two people so far and they are connected to the

:07:43.:07:47.

theatre but the offences were not committed at the theatre itself, it

:07:48.:07:51.

was away from the theatre. The two people banned from the theatre at

:07:52.:07:56.

our request have not been arrested but if information leads us to

:07:57.:08:00.

believe they are not responsible people to be part of that, then we

:08:01.:08:07.

will. The council increased in number of visits made to the theatre

:08:08.:08:12.

to ensure that children were safe. The authorities decided not to issue

:08:13.:08:16.

any licenses for children to take part in forthcoming productions.

:08:17.:08:21.

Parents are being urged to speak to their children and if they have any

:08:22.:08:23.

concerns, they should contact police. It is a very delicate

:08:24.:08:29.

issue, we realise it is sensitive and we do not 0

:08:30.:08:30.

issue, we realise it is sensitive and we do not take these cases

:08:31.:08:34.

lightly. It is very complex. We would like people to speak to our

:08:35.:08:39.

trained detectives. The men arrested have not been charged, they are on

:08:40.:08:44.

bail and the police have also carried out searches at for

:08:45.:08:48.

premises, including the Concordia. Nobody from the theatre wanted to

:08:49.:08:53.

talk to me on camera. They did give me a brief statement, saying they

:08:54.:08:57.

were cooperating with all of the agencies and it would be

:08:58.:09:03.

inappropriate to comment further. Derbyshire's Fire Service may back

:09:04.:09:07.

down on plans to close a third of its stations. During a three`month

:09:08.:09:11.

consultation, 85% of people disagreed with the proposals. The

:09:12.:09:16.

service now says any closures are a last resort. It is proposing to

:09:17.:09:20.

reduce its staff requirements, although it wants to avoid

:09:21.:09:23.

compulsory redundancies. The county's Fire Authority will discuss

:09:24.:09:26.

the proposals next week. A 27`year`old man has been cleared of

:09:27.:09:30.

the murder of a teenager who was shot outside a Nottingham pub.

:09:31.:09:33.

Malakai McKenzie was killed near The Hub in Sherwood in April 2012. This

:09:34.:09:39.

afternoon, Shakir Robinson was found not guilty of playing a part in his

:09:40.:09:44.

death. Another man, Cameron Cashin from Basford, has already been

:09:45.:09:49.

convicted of Mr McKenzie's murder. Representatives from one of

today in connection with alleged safety failings in the management of

X`ray materials. The Health and Safety Executive says it relates to

:10:02.:10:04.

possible breaches at this factory in Derby three years ago, when it was a

:10:05.:10:08.

former site for Rolls`Royce Marine Power Operations. The case has now

:10:09.:10:16.

been referred to the Crown Court. Some parents at a Derbyshire primary

:10:17.:10:19.

school say they're angry that the head teacher has temporarily left

:10:20.:10:23.

the school in the wake of a critical report. St Giles Primary School's

:10:24.:10:26.

Ofsted rating plunged last autumn from outstanding to inadequate. Some

:10:27.:10:32.

parents were unhappy about how the school was performing but others

:10:33.:10:35.

have told the BBC that everyone involved with the Matlock school

:10:36.:10:38.

should be backing it and the head. Here's James Roberson. Happier days

:10:39.:10:48.

in 1992 at St Giles, when the Queen came to open officially the

:10:49.:10:53.

Newbuildings. Not so happy days now. Far from growing, the school is

:10:54.:10:58.

actually shrinking. It confirmed that since September, 15 children

:10:59.:11:05.

out of 107 have left. It is understood that the long`standing

:11:06.:11:09.

headmaster of the headmistress has left a post after some parents

:11:10.:11:14.

handed in a 25 name inspection to Ofsted. The parents have lost

:11:15.:11:19.

confidence and they are unhappy with the school 's direction since the

:11:20.:11:24.

last report, when a school went from outstanding to inadequate and was

:11:25.:11:28.

put into special measures. In a statement, the chair of governors

:11:29.:11:32.

said the governing body continues to work closely with Derbyshire County

:11:33.:11:37.

Council and the Board of Education. I can confirm that the head will not

:11:38.:11:41.

be in school for the time being. We are continuing to work together to

:11:42.:11:45.

put interim arrangements in place. One parent told us of camera that

:11:46.:11:51.

most parents wanted the head's removal and they believe mass many

:11:52.:11:56.

as 25% of children have left. The parents support the school. I'm not

:11:57.:12:01.

worried about my son 's education and can only get stronger if would

:12:02.:12:05.

just support us. And not be so negative. I will not be taking my

:12:06.:12:10.

son away. I hope everyone shows support, it is a community school.

:12:11.:12:15.

The way some parents have behaved is the opposite of the 0 0

:12:16.:12:18.

The way some parents have behaved is the opposite of the Christian ethos

:12:19.:12:20.

and I find it very disappointing. I am very angry. Ofsted have not

:12:21.:12:26.

commented officially but they say that any complaints received about

:12:27.:12:29.

any school are taken seriously and thoroughly investigated. There's

:12:30.:12:34.

been a huge rise in the number of complaints about websites offering

:12:35.:12:36.

online form`checking services which do very little yet charge huge sums

:12:37.:12:43.

of money. Trading Standards say in January they received twice as many

:12:44.:12:46.

complaints as they did for the whole of last year. Sarah Teale has joined

:12:47.:12:52.

us in the studio, Sarah, what kind of websites are we talking about

:12:53.:12:58.

here? They're independent companies which offer some kind of checking

:12:59.:13:01.

service for applications like passports or tax returns. But the

:13:02.:13:05.

problem is they're designed to look like the official websites so people

:13:06.:13:08.

don't realise they're paying for something they may not even need.

Nottinghamshire Trading Standards say the problem is escalating.

:13:14.:13:18.

Throughout the whole of last year they received 41 complaints about

this sort of practice. So far this year, they've already had 24

:13:22.:13:26.

complaints. I've been speaking to Rebecca 0

:13:27.:13:26.

complaints. I've been speaking to Rebecca Hardiman from West Bridgford

:13:27.:13:29.

in Nottingham, who lost hundreds of pounds after filling in her annual

:13:30.:13:38.

tax return form. I used Google for tax returns and at the very top

:13:39.:13:45.

there was this gateway. I went through and I filled in all of those

:13:46.:13:50.

things and at the end they asked me for ?100. Did you think you are just

:13:51.:13:56.

paying the tax? I did. I could not understand is why it came out at

:13:57.:14:02.

?400. I was just horrified. I was really annoyed with myself because I

:14:03.:14:05.

am usually very careful. What do you think about the company? It is

:14:06.:14:10.

borderline legal but it is so deceptive. I hope justice comes to

:14:11.:14:16.

them. Rebecca was told she wasn't entitled to any of her money back

:14:17.:14:19.

and that particular website has now suspended operations. But there are

:14:20.:14:22.

many other similar companies out there, and not just for tax returns

:14:23.:14:25.

but also for driving licences, European health forms, visas, and

:14:26.:14:28.

passports. Trading Standards told me one man from Retford paid ?99 for

:14:29.:14:32.

what he thought was a fast`track passport. To avoid these checking

:14:33.:14:35.

companies, make sure you get to the official Government websites. He

:14:36.:14:44.

turned up at the passport office expecting to collect his passport,

:14:45.:14:48.

which he did, so that part of the service was provided. He had an

:14:49.:14:52.

appointment but he was not expecting to be asked for another ?140. They

:14:53.:14:58.

are not a legal? I am afraid not. With the existing legislation, at

:14:59.:15:03.

the moment they are being very clever and they just keep on the

right 0 clever and they just keep on the

OK. Thank you very much indeed. Beware. A Nottingham pub has been

:15:25.:15:30.

forced to cancel a planned Valentine's event following

:15:31.:15:32.

complaints. A barmaid at the Old Angel Inn in Hockley designed this

poster for an alternative speed`dating night. Nottingham City

Council had to intervene as the posters breached the licensing act.

A feminist group says that the language used was highly offensive

and that offering free shots of spirits to all women taking part

could have put some of them at risk. The references to these unpleasant

:16:03.:16:05.

dehumanise women and to excuse abuse and assault. It is just a play on

words. And the term that I used was supposed to be empowering as much

:16:14.:16:19.

as... It was not meant to offend, just to grab attention. It might be

:16:20.:16:24.

safer for us not to comment on that. I was going to say there was

:16:25.:16:30.

lots of sport, that it is not Friday! We do have action. Forest's

:16:31.:16:38.

remarkable run continues. 14 games unbeaten and their latest win has

:16:39.:16:42.

booked them a place in the FA Cup fifth round. It wasn't pretty and

victory against Preston North End didn't come easy. Here's Angela. And

inform Nottingham Forest came up against Preston and they proved

:16:55.:16:57.

tough to beat but they did enough. Jamie Mackie opened the scoring with

:16:58.:17:02.

his first FA Cup goal in seven years. Worth the wait. It was not an

:17:03.:17:12.

eye for the faint`hearted as the home side pushed for the equaliser.

:17:13.:17:17.

They might have felt hard done by when this handball appeal was turned

:17:18.:17:25.

down. What followed was an onslaught that called for desperate defending.

:17:26.:17:29.

No wonder the final whistle could not come soon enough. But deep into

:17:30.:17:34.

injury time, with almost the last kick, Henderson delivered this

:17:35.:17:40.

strike. The better team lost the game. We scored the goals, some very

:17:41.:17:45.

good goals. We defended very well. But I have to say, credit has to go

:17:46.:17:50.

to the home team. They were the better team. And I think we were

:17:51.:17:57.

very fortunate. Forrest will go through. Next up, Sheffield United,

:17:58.:18:04.

led by Nigel Clough. It should be some showdown. Someone who won't be

:18:05.:18:08.

featuring for Forest for the foreseeable future is midfielder

:18:09.:18:11.

Henri Lansbury. He's been ruled out for up to three months with a

:18:12.:18:17.

fractured lower back. Given Forest's run of form, little wonder that

Leicester's Nigel Pearson, whose team are ten points clear at the

top, is also in the running. But certainly not getting carried away.

January was very good as well. So everybody 0

January was very good as well. So everybody who is here is determined

to push on, really, from the position we have got ourselves into.

Onto cricket and a first senior England call`up for

:18:52.:18:54.

Nottinghamshire's Harry Gurney. The 27`year`old has been named in the

:18:55.:18:57.

squad for their tour of the West Indies and could also feature at the

:18:58.:19:01.

ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh after being named as a travelling

:19:02.:19:04.

reserve. He joins Alex Hales, Michael Lumb and Stuart Broad on

:19:05.:19:09.

tour. And finally, a Nottingham speed skater will be the man who

:19:10.:19:13.

carries the GB flag at tomorrow's opening ceremony of the Winter

:19:14.:19:16.

Olympics. Jon Eley, who's at his third Winter Olympics, says he's

:19:17.:19:19.

surprised and delighted by the honour. As he arrived in Sochi, John

:19:20.:19:28.

Eley thought all he had to focus on was skating. But now he has a

:19:29.:19:32.

distraction. He will lead his country into the opening ceremony.

:19:33.:19:37.

Fantastic, an amazing feeling and I did not expect. I got called back

:19:38.:19:42.

from breakfast and I thought, have I done anything wrong? It was good

:19:43.:19:47.

news. He is awarded for his experience and his chance for a

:19:48.:19:51.

medal. Jack Whelbourne and Elise Christie start on Saturday. With the

:19:52.:19:57.

national centre being built, we have brought a great group of guys and

:19:58.:20:01.

girls together and the support we have had as truly brought this team

together well and it is just the hard work paying off. Walking behind

will be ice dance 's neck dockland and Penny Coomes. But they might

also have their eyes on competition. They go in the team event. `` Nick
