Thank you very much. That is it from both of us for

:00:00.:00:15.

With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. #n A

:00:16.:00:21.

two`year`old girl fighting a rare form of cancer is to undergo

:00:22.:00:24.

specialist treatment overseas. It's hoped it'll not only save young

:00:25.:00:27.

Bethany's life, but also her face. The family from Nottingham leave for

:00:28.:00:30.

America on Tuesday, as Tom Brown reports.

:00:31.:00:45.

Four`year`old Kano is high `` this four`year`old boy knows how

:00:46.:00:50.

important family is, especially since his sister has cancer. I was

:00:51.:00:58.

scared when Bethany was sick. Bethany has a rare muscle tumour in

:00:59.:01:01.

her left cheek. If she had it removed here she could lose most of

:01:02.:01:05.

the left side of her face and an eye. Now, the NHS is flying Bethany

:01:06.:01:10.

and her parents to America. There they offer proton beam radiotherapy

:01:11.:01:13.

for a more controlled and more effective treatment. You can almost

:01:14.:01:19.

see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully this is the bit

:01:20.:01:24.

that will finish it off and we will come back and that is hopefully

:01:25.:01:31.

done. And her brother will be there to after a charity and the local

:01:32.:01:34.

community chipped in to pay for his flight. Will you be happy to there

:01:35.:01:40.

with her? Yes, because I am her brother. Because I keep an eye on

:01:41.:01:47.

her, like my mummy said. The family leave on Tuesday to begin the 12

:01:48.:01:51.

weeks of treatment that could begin the end of Bethany's cancer ordeal.

:01:52.:01:55.

#n Police have been investigating what's been going on in Leicester to

:01:56.:01:59.

leave three people in need of hospital treatment. Three men were

:02:00.:02:05.

found with injuries in Rowan Street late last night. Two had been

:02:06.:02:09.

stabbed, one had a fractured rib. All three were arrested.

:02:10.:02:11.

The owner of Britain's largest private aquarium says the cost of

:02:12.:02:14.

electricity is forcing him to get rid of his exotic fish. After a

:02:15.:02:18.

mistake on his metre reading, Jack Heathcote was faced with an ?11,000

:02:19.:02:21.

arrears bill, as Quentin Rayner reports.

:02:22.:02:28.

Few of us will forget Jack swimming with his tropical fish in the

:02:29.:02:33.

basement of his home. It is Britain's biggest private aquarium

:02:34.:02:37.

but heating and filtering the water costs ?6,000 a year. The exotic

:02:38.:02:41.

fish, some of which weigh five stone, have to be sold or given away

:02:42.:02:45.

and replaced with cold water river fish to slash the bill. It is a

:02:46.:02:53.

tremendous blow. It has cut me up. I went to great lengths to provide a

:02:54.:02:55.

suitable home for these creatures and now I have got to get rid. Jack

:02:56.:03:00.

thought he was budgeting correctly but a misreading of the meter

:03:01.:03:08.

suggested he faced an 11th thousand pounds arrears bill, which has been

:03:09.:03:13.

revised to 4000. The way they have behaved has been atrocious. This

:03:14.:03:17.

should have recognised they made the mistake and been apologetic for it,

:03:18.:03:22.

and not been trying to charge me this enormous bill. British Gas say

:03:23.:03:29.

Mr Heathcote has not paid anything for months despite offers of help,

:03:30.:03:32.

and they seldom accurate meter readings. He is appealing against

:03:33.:03:36.

the arrears bill. British Gas is threatening disconnection.

:03:37.:03:40.

In Championship football tomorrow, fourth placed Derby host second

:03:41.:03:43.

place QPR ` the very side that brought McClaren back to English

:03:44.:03:49.

football. I could not say a bad word about

:03:50.:03:57.

him. Hopefully, the respect is there. The respect will be there in

:03:58.:04:03.

a matter what the result is. And to the weekend's ice hockey,

:04:04.:04:06.

which saw Nottingham Panthers beat Sheffield 5`2 last night. But a

:04:07.:04:09.

short while ago saw them defeated 4`3 at Hull, when it went to

:04:10.:04:11.

penalties. After a wet and windy weekend, more

:04:12.:04:19.

settled conditions tomorrow. Tonight, the concern is nice, which

:04:20.:04:24.

is why there is a weather warning in place. `` the concern is ayes. The

:04:25.:04:29.

skies are clearing and temperatures are dropping away. They will be

:04:30.:04:35.

close to freezing and some places. We are expecting frosts. Tomorrow, a

:04:36.:04:38.

settled day on the cards. The wind is much lighter. There will be like

:04:39.:04:42.

charmers around which may turn Widgery, particularly over higher

:04:43.:04:49.

ground. `` light showers around. Highs of five or six degrees. More

:04:50.:04:54.

wet and windy weather to come on Tuesday, unsettled and cold this

:04:55.:04:57.

week. Carol Hinds will have more for you

:04:58.:05:00.

in BBC Breakfast tomorrow, for now from your weekend team ` good night.

:05:01.:05:08.

Good evening. A little welcome news in this forecast, unfortunately As

:05:09.:05:15.

we have seen today the number of severe flood warnings has risen

:05:16.:05:21.

dramatically. We are fearful with more rain and

:05:22.:05:25.

gales forecast for the week ahead that will compound the problems

:05:26.:05:31.

With coer, air there is a
