Jeremy Paxman And now the news for the East

:00:00.:00:17.

Midlands. A jury's been shown dramatic footage

:00:18.:00:21.

of the moment a Sikh spiritual leader was attacked with an axe

:00:22.:00:24.

during a religious ceremony at a temple in Leicester. The court was

:00:25.:00:27.

told the defendant will allege he'd been sexually abused by the Guru

:00:28.:00:34.

twenty years ago in India. Quentin Rayner reports.

:00:35.:00:45.

Last August, he was in the UK from the Punjab on an official visit. His

:00:46.:00:51.

first function was an early`morning religious visit in Leicester. He had

:00:52.:01:02.

bought a three foot axe in the previous week. He entered the player

:01:03.:01:10.

Hall. Footage shown to the Julie captured him walking up to the

:01:11.:01:14.

platform and wielding the axe. He was quickly overpowered and

:01:15.:01:18.

screaming and shouting could be heard. The leader's right arm was

:01:19.:01:29.

broken and he had a cut to his face. The court was told that he had been

:01:30.:01:40.

heading for the guru's head. The court was told the guru had stayed

:01:41.:01:45.

at the home of the man's uncle the night before. After being

:01:46.:01:50.

overpowered by worshippers he said he did not believe in the living

:01:51.:01:55.

guru. The court heard that since his arrest, he had alleged that the guru

:01:56.:02:02.

sexually abused him 20 years ago in India. The jury was told that

:02:03.:02:08.

whether it was out of hatred or revenge, he had a crystal clear

:02:09.:02:15.

motive for wanting to kill the guru. He denies attempting murder but

:02:16.:02:19.

admits grievous bodily harm. HS2 says up to 600 jobs could be

:02:20.:02:23.

lost when sites are demolished near the proposed East Midlands station

:02:24.:02:28.

in Nottinghamshire. And a company boss in Leicestershire is trying to

:02:29.:02:31.

save a huge car parts factory from being knocked down. HS2 is now

:02:32.:02:34.

looking at the responses from a public consultation period. Mike

:02:35.:02:43.

O'Sullivan reports. At the hamlet of Langton near Kirby

:02:44.:02:48.

in Ashfield, all six homes are set to be 0

:02:49.:02:48.

in Ashfield, all six homes are set to be wiped off the map. I don't

:02:49.:02:54.

want to move, particularly because my husband died 14 months ago and I

:02:55.:03:00.

made a rose garden for him. My grandchildren scattered his ashes so

:03:01.:03:05.

I just can't leave it. It is a tragedy. Supporters point to

:03:06.:03:13.

economic benefits but in Leicestershire, the boss of a car

parts 0 Leicestershire, the boss of a car

:03:15.:03:18.

parts factory employing 450 people is formally objecting. Relocating

:03:19.:03:25.

could cost between 50 and ?100 million. We have got investment

:03:26.:03:32.

decisions to make over the next few years and it is difficult because if

:03:33.:03:39.

you invest any more money with that uncertainty, you could lose out.

:03:40.:03:44.

This is a real company says it can keep its maintenance depot one 350

:03:45.:03:54.

jobs here, despite HS2. Demolition work could mean the results of up to

:03:55.:04:04.

600 jobs. This is an 80 acre site and its layout is largely dictated

:04:05.:04:09.

by railway operations 30 years ago. We believe there's enough space for

:04:10.:04:16.

to exist side`by`side. HS2 says the station development will lead to the

:04:17.:04:19.

creation of 1500 jobs. The region's aerospace industry is

:04:20.:04:22.

being boosted by a multi`million pound support fund. The Government

:04:23.:04:25.

backed programme is protecting thousands of jobs. Our reporter

:04:26.:04:28.

Eleanor Garnier's been to see one Leicestershire engineering firm

:04:29.:04:38.

that's taking on more staff. It does not get any more precise

:04:39.:04:42.

than this. They have been making blades for aeroplane engines here

:04:43.:04:52.

since 1941. The family business employs 124 people but now it is

:04:53.:04:57.

growing. Job numbers will increase and it is more important we do not

:04:58.:04:59.

need 0 and it is more important we do not

:05:00.:04:59.

need to 0 and it is more important we do not

:05:00.:05:00.

need to move away from our local community. We are immensely proud of

the yearly and will be staying on this site for the future. That means

:05:06.:05:12.

around 25 new jobs in the next four years, good news for apprentices

:05:13.:05:18.

like this 21`year`old. I have been given the opportunity to go on a

:05:19.:05:21.

course like this and it has helped me grow as an individual. It is a

:05:22.:05:27.

benefit for me on every level. This is one of the first companies to

:05:28.:05:32.

sign up for the shearling link in growth fund, getting ?1 million from

:05:33.:05:38.

the government pot of money and no other Midlands companies are

:05:39.:05:45.

following in its depths. The aerospace industry is very

:05:46.:05:50.

important. We have a Rolls`Royce and you cannot 0

:05:51.:05:51.

important. We have a Rolls`Royce and you cannot get any better but we

:05:52.:05:54.

also have a huge supply base supplying others as well. The

:05:55.:05:59.

challenge is to make them competitive so they can compete on

:06:00.:06:03.

the global scene. There are already 30,000 people in the East Midlands

:06:04.:06:10.

working in the aerospace industry. With extra money, training and

:06:11.:06:15.

support, it is hoped that number will grow as this region takes a

:06:16.:06:20.

greater share of the global market. In football, there's one important

:06:21.:06:23.

result from the Championship tonight. At the Ipro Stadium Derby

:06:24.:06:26.

County one, Queens Park Rangers zero.

:06:27.:06:34.

A good note to end the news on. That's your news. So, it's goodbye

:06:35.:06:38.

from me but with your weather now, here's Kaye Forster.

:06:39.:06:43.

There's a lot of weather over the next 0 0

:06:44.:06:44.

There's a lot of weather over the next few days and some of us will

:06:45.:06:48.

see snow, he went to the field to the weather. We will pull in some

:06:49.:06:54.

cold earlier so do not be surprised if you see some sleet or snow.

:06:55.:06:58.

Fairly quiet through tonight with the showers fading away. Like twins

:06:59.:07:05.

so the temperature will be below freezing by the morning. `` light

:07:06.:07:11.

winds. The rain will quickly push in with these short, sharp downpour.

:07:12.:07:17.

You can see by around lunchtime it moves through quickly sold dry and

:07:18.:07:22.

bright for the afternoon. The showers turning increasingly when

:07:23.:07:28.

Terry as the afternoon goes on. For the temperature it will feel a bit

:07:29.:07:32.

colder. In a few moments, we will have a full national

:07:33.:07:37.

Good evening. You have my permission to complain about too many repeats

:07:38.:07:45.

with the British weather at the moment because yet again it looks as

:07:46.:07:49.

though our winter weather is set to continue with a repeat of last week.

:07:50.:07:54.

Sunny spells and scattered showers today and this is the next area of

:07:55.:07:58.

low pressure pushing in from the west. It influences our weather for

:07:59.:08:07.

the rest of the week. More rain to come and gales and severe gales to

:08:08.:08:14.

come. Ice is a possible risk. That means a cumulative total perhaps or

:08:15.:08:22.

40-70 millimetres and that is an extra two to three inches. It will

:08:23.:08:26.

exacerbate the flooding we have already got across England at the

:08:27.:08:31.

moment. The cloud, wind and rain is already pushing in from the west.

:08:32.:08:37.

There will be a widespread frost. Ice could be a problem first thing

:08:38.:08:42.

in Northern Ireland. Snow in the hills and maybe in the North East of

:08:43.:08:47.

Scotland we could see snow at lower levels. Rain through northern

:08:48.:08:53.

England and Wales and Somerset. Some of that rain could be quite intense

:08:54.:08:59.

coupled with squally, gusty winds on exposed coasts. In the east it

:09:00.:09:03.

starts off relatively dry, but it will not be long before the wind and

:09:04.:09:10.

the rain spreads further east. Up into the North the snow showers

:09:11.:09:15.

continue on the hills, but by the end of the afternoon we could see

:09:16.:09:20.

wet snow even at lower levels. A cold day. There is a potential for

:09:21.:09:26.

some snow showers at lower levels across England and Wales on Tuesday

:09:27.:09:31.

night and into Wednesday. On Wednesday it is this area of low

:09:32.:09:35.

pressure which is the main factor in Wednesday's weather. More wet and

:09:36.:09:42.

windy weather. An early amber warning has already been issued from

:09:43.:09:47.

the South West. Severe gales are likely as we continue to see some

:09:48.:09:51.

very wet weather coming into central and southern areas. The strongest

:09:52.:09:57.

winds follow in behind those showers. In Scotland you are

:09:58.:10:00.

probably wondering what the
