Berkshire. Now it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight ` train bosses apologise for a broken promise of faster journeys

:00:09.:00:21.

to London. They organised this photo opportunity knowing they could not

:00:22.:00:26.

deliver quicker journeys. 15 arrests in Derby as police seized drugs and

:00:27.:00:34.

suspected dangerous dogs. Plus, the streamlining of local government in

:00:35.:00:38.

Leicestershire but will it really deliver on big savings? And could

:00:39.:00:46.

these DIY defences make sandbags obsolete? It is so much quicker. One

:00:47.:00:52.

person could do it instead of the army doing it currently.

:00:53.:01:02.

Hello and welcome to the programme. First tonight, the passengers

:01:03.:01:06.

furious at what they call 'broken promises'. In December, East

:01:07.:01:09.

Midlands Trains announced faster links with London. But it's emerged

:01:10.:01:12.

it made those promises knowing it may not be able to deliver. It

:01:13.:01:17.

discovered, just before the launch, that Network Rail hadn't finished

:01:18.:01:21.

work on the line. But the announcement to passengers still

:01:22.:01:24.

went ahead and rather than faster links, some passengers are suffering

:01:25.:01:29.

delays. Jo Healey's at Derby Station. What's the background to

:01:30.:01:44.

this? Yes, hello. Two months ago in December on Derby station there was

:01:45.:01:50.

quite a fanfare, the Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin

:01:51.:01:52.

announced a new faster link to London, trains could travel at 125

:01:53.:01:58.

miles an hour knocking four minutes of the journey from Derby. But, two

:01:59.:02:03.

weeks 0 of the journey from Derby. But, two

:02:04.:02:07.

weeks before the announcement East Midlands Trains knew that network

:02:08.:02:12.

rail had not completed crucial work on the line. Effectively, at times

:02:13.:02:15.

slamming some of 0 on the line. Effectively, at times

:02:16.:02:20.

slamming some of the trains. Last week East Midlands Trains talked of

:02:21.:02:24.

network rail's failure to deliver the promised line speed improvement

:02:25.:02:30.

on time. They say they underestimated the scale of the

:02:31.:02:34.

work. It was, they said, completely unacceptable. This is what some

:02:35.:02:42.

passengers told us. My last several journeys have been late which is an

:02:43.:02:47.

issue if you have connections and meetings. Everyday I come to this

:02:48.:02:53.

train, it is always ten minutes late. It is normally on time and

:02:54.:02:59.

also coming back from London. It is annoying because I had to catch a

:03:00.:03:04.

connecting bus in Leicester. There was a new `` a united front

:03:05.:03:09.

from both companies apologising but insisting they are small. Look at

:03:10.:03:17.

this. It is a record, one passenger kept in January systematically

:03:18.:03:21.

logging had delays between East Midlands and London. At its worst,

:03:22.:03:27.

trains were cancelled, many many trains were a number of minutes late

:03:28.:03:32.

and in one case there was a half an hour delay. She is furious.

:03:33.:03:39.

Passengers were told to December there would be faster links even

:03:40.:03:43.

though East Midlands Trains and Network Rail knew they may not be

:03:44.:03:50.

able to deliver. We have had what East Midlands Trains said but have

:03:51.:03:53.

they given an explanation as to why they went ahead with the

:03:54.:03:57.

announcement in December? Yes, they have said they went ahead

:03:58.:04:03.

thinking they could mitigate some of the delays so presumably hoping no

:04:04.:04:08.

one would notice but they were caught out by some factors including

:04:09.:04:14.

the bad weather we have been having. The managing directors have

:04:15.:04:17.

apologised again to passengers, they say most of the work should be done

:04:18.:04:24.

by April after that the timetable they promised in December would

:04:25.:04:29.

finally be up and running just four month late.

:04:30.:04:35.

We will leave it there. Coming up. More wild weather on the way. Kaye

:04:36.:04:40.

Derby. Residents say their lives had been made a misery in recent months

:05:02.:05:04.

with drug dealing openly taking place near their homes. And as well

:05:05.:05:07.

as suspected drugs, officers today also seized four dogs, which it's

:05:08.:05:11.

thought could be banned under Dangerous Dogs legislation. From

Derby, Simon Hare reports. It has been six months of evidence

gathering. An 0 It has been six months of evidence

organised crime gang in Derby. For those who do not work the area, if

:05:29.:05:33.

they see you walking around, they will intimidate you.

:05:34.:05:41.

Let's support the teams. A dozen homes in the Peartree area city was

:05:42.:05:46.

searched, officers using a sniffer dog recovered suspected class a and

:05:47.:05:51.

class B drugs and stolen property. 16 people were arrested, among them

:05:52.:05:59.

three women. One of them was taken in for questioning by officers from

:06:00.:06:03.

the National Crime Agency. Residents were too nervous to appear on

:06:04.:06:08.

said the area had become dangerous Jude to the amount of drug dealing

:06:14.:06:16.

taking place. People have been complaining ``

:06:17.:06:25.

Chivu to the amount of drug dealing. The impact on the local community

:06:26.:06:32.

has been unbearable for them and frustrating.

:06:33.:06:35.

I understand the frustration because they see the drug dealing going on

:06:36.:06:39.

and they think what are we doing, what are the police doing but today

:06:40.:06:44.

is to show we have been doing something in the background. Four

:06:45.:06:48.

dogs are suspected of being banned and the Dangerous Dogs Act were also

:06:49.:06:52.

recovered. Tonight, 15 of the 16 people

:06:53.:06:55.

arrested were still being questioned.

:06:56.:07:05.

A Sikh spiritual leader has told a court that allegations that he

:07:06.:07:08.

sexually abused a man who attacked him with an axe "are totally

:07:09.:07:11.

absurd." Harjit Singh Toor from Oadby alleges the abuse took place

:07:12.:07:14.

on a number of occasions at his uncle's house in India when he was a

:07:15.:07:18.

boy. Here's our Chief News reporter Quentin Rayner.

:07:19.:07:27.

The allegations against his Holiness date back 20 years before he became

:07:28.:07:34.

spiritual leader. Harjit Singh Toor claims the abuse took place when he

:07:35.:07:38.

was seven years old at celebrations at his uncles house in the Punjab

:07:39.:07:43.

attended by hundreds. In court, his Holiness gave evidence by video link

:07:44.:07:50.

and he repeatedly denied ever visiting the house or the village.

:07:51.:07:53.

He told the court I have never met him and there is no question of

:07:54.:07:58.

touching him. The defence then suggested at the time of the alleged

:07:59.:08:03.

abuse he told the seven`year`old Harjit Singh Toor not to say

:08:04.:08:07.

anything to anybody and the Guru replied it isn't true. When asked by

:08:08.:08:11.

the prosecution if there was a word of truth to the serious sexual

:08:12.:08:16.

allegations, the Guru told the court absolutely none. It is absurd.

:08:17.:08:23.

Earlier, the Guru described how he had not suspected anything in the

:08:24.:08:29.

temple, he made a swing targeting my head with an axe, I lifted my arm

:08:30.:08:33.

and felt pain. There was a lot of blood. Harjit Singh Toor denies

:08:34.:08:49.

attempted murder but admits GBH. An American clothing company is

:08:50.:08:52.

creating more than 150 jobs in Nottingham at a new customer service

:08:53.:08:54.

centre. VF Corporation owns brands including

:08:55.:08:57.

The North Face and Lee and Wrangler jeans. It's now recruiting staff for

:08:58.:09:01.

a new office on the NG2 Business Park. The firm already employs more

:09:02.:09:04.

than 200 people at the Wrangler UK base in Calverton.

:09:05.:09:07.

There's anger at a decision to spend sixty five thousand pounds of public

:09:08.:09:10.

money sending Nottingham City Council delegates to the French

:09:11.:09:12.

Riviera. Council representatives are attending the Annual International

:09:13.:09:15.

Property Fair in Cannes. They say it's an opportunity to attract

:09:16.:09:18.

investment. Critics argue it's a waste of taxpayers' money, at a time

:09:19.:09:21.

of budget cuts. For the past three years, the cost of the trip's been

:09:22.:09:31.

met by private backers. Scrapping district councils in one of our

:09:32.:09:34.

counties and merging them into one single, big authority, could save

:09:35.:09:38.

around 30 million pounds a year, and cut council tax according to an

:09:39.:09:42.

independent report. It would mean the biggest shake`up

:09:43.:09:45.

in the structure of local government for decades. But could it also help

:09:46.:09:48.

councils struggling to balance their budgets. Our political editor John

:09:49.:09:58.

Hess has more details. Sensing the bins is one of the most

:09:59.:10:03.

valued of local services but is it time to tidy up the council to an

:10:04.:10:09.

merge them? In Leicestershire, seven district councils and the County

:10:10.:10:13.

Council. Accountants suggest replacing them all with one powerful

:10:14.:10:18.

unitary authority. The report was commissioned by a politician, the

:10:19.:10:23.

leader of Conservative run Leicestershire.

:10:24.:10:26.

If you believe the Chancellor going forward in the next ten years, the

:10:27.:10:30.

savings are only going to get greater. Maybe the time has come for

:10:31.:10:34.

a sensible debate about local government.

:10:35.:10:40.

The report targets duplication, eight chief executives and 19

:10:41.:10:45.

directors, merging those posts could save ?15 million. Merging the

:10:46.:10:49.

district and county into one would save 31 point formerly an pounds

:10:50.:10:55.

annually. Setting up the new council would cost ?13 million, says the

:10:56.:11:00.

report but the move would cut council tax. And with the merger,

:11:01.:11:04.

the number of councillors would be cut from 316 to 100.

:11:05.:11:09.

Even if Leicestershire vote for unitary status, the council chamber

:11:10.:11:14.

here would have to be expanded to take more councillors to ensure

:11:15.:11:17.

there was fair representation. For the district councils, the district

:11:18.:11:21.

`` is it a cut too 0 the district councils, the district

:11:22.:11:24.

`` is it a cut too far? The leader of one of the smaller councils

:11:25.:11:28.

speaks out. You end up way Wah with less

:11:29.:11:35.

representation and less ability to connect 0

:11:36.:11:35.

representation and less ability to connect with people.

:11:36.:11:38.

County Hall Tories say it isn't a grab for cash or power but it may

:11:39.:11:42.

take more than a chocolate cupcake for this council leader.

:11:43.:11:49.

A Nottingham mother whose four`year`old child has had major

:11:50.:11:52.

open`heart surgery three times is calling for more to be done to raise

:11:53.:11:56.

awareness of the problem. Her son, who was born with a congenital heart

:11:57.:11:58.

defect, faces an uncertain future. When this four`year old grows up, he

:11:59.:12:11.

wants to race cars. But for now running around is a dangerous

:12:12.:12:17.

activity. You probably can't tell but Harvey was born with a

:12:18.:12:22.

congenital heart defect which means the right side of his heart doesn't

:12:23.:12:23.

work 0 the right side of his heart doesn't

:12:24.:12:25.

work so the left works twice as hard. He already has had three major

:12:26.:12:32.

surgeries. Eventually, he may need a transplant if he has delivered past

:12:33.:12:37.

his 20s. For him, it is normal, makes no difference but as he gets

:12:38.:12:43.

older he will face problems and arguments when he wants to play

:12:44.:12:47.

football and do the things other kids are doing which will be risky.

:12:48.:12:51.

The prognosis is guarded, they don't like to say what the future holds,

:12:52.:12:58.

the only certainty is uncertainty with heart conditions.

:12:59.:13:01.

Somebody in every 20 families is affected. It is time`consuming,

:13:02.:13:08.

heart`rending, it is expensive. It's expensive for the families and the

:13:09.:13:12.

NHS. It is hoped by raising awareness kids like Harvey are able

:13:13.:13:19.

to stay their feet. Good luck to him. How early can

:13:20.:13:28.

doctors find out if a child has a heart defect?

:13:29.:13:30.

Increasingly they find out in the womb, at the 20 week scan or

:13:31.:13:36.

sometimes earlier. That allows doctors to identify the most serious

:13:37.:13:41.

problems. They found out about Harvey's condition when she was

:13:42.:13:46.

pregnant and he was operated on at a day old. Had it not been picked up

:13:47.:13:49.

then, he would not have survived. And what options are available for

:13:50.:13:55.

treating the problem? Surgery, keyhole intervention, medical

:13:56.:13:58.

treatment but in some cases treatments are not needed for many

:13:59.:14:02.

years. There is no magic here. Patients often come back, they need

:14:03.:14:08.

treatment and work later on and also the consultant said they are

:14:09.:14:15.

continually surprised that some people often live veritably

:14:16.:14:20.

healthily into adult hood. Let's keep our fingers crossed for Harvey.

:14:21.:14:26.

A Nottingham head teacher says keeping young people safe online is

:14:27.:14:29.

an impossible issue but one that needs to be tackled.

:14:30.:14:32.

His comments came on Safer Internet Day ` a world`wide event to

encourage more responsible use of the web. To coincide with the event,

:15:04.:15:06.

Students here think the way it is taught needs to be better.

:15:07.:15:12.

We should adapt more lessons, bring in people more specific to teach it

:15:13.:15:16.

and raise awareness. We need to adapt to the internet rather than

:15:17.:15:24.

running from it and being scared. You can find out... If we had more

:15:25.:15:29.

education and teachers gave a small support it would definitely help the

:15:30.:15:32.

younger children especially. There is so much danger, people can

:15:33.:15:41.

get hurt. Girls especially can get predators on there. It is important

:15:42.:15:46.

we tackle it. Hannah from Leicestershire took her

says staff and parents need to get up to speed.

:16:02.:16:05.

It is an impossible issue because as adults we are always learning from

:16:06.:16:09.

the students about what is out there, you only have to see the news

Lots of experiences from parents who have been shocked about what their

kids were looking at online and how easily they find it. The primary

:17:30.:17:32.

with Derby's thrilling win over Queens Park Rangers last night which

:17:33.:17:36.

has blown apart the top of the Championship table. With two teams

:17:37.:17:39.

automatically going up, the win leaves Derby a point from second

:17:40.:17:41.

place. The result strengthens Leicester's position at the top. And

:17:42.:17:45.

it also opens the door for Forest who are hovering waiting for others

:17:46.:17:49.

to fail. It meant so much for the Rams ` and it really was quite a

:18:04.:18:07.

championship but it could have been broken in the 0

:18:08.:18:07.

championship but it could have been broken in the first minute. As the

:18:08.:18:14.

Rams put on the pressure, they almost fluked a goal. The

:18:15.:18:22.

clearance... When it finally came, the goal was a rarity. I had the

:18:23.:18:30.

second in a Rams shirt for him. QPR protested but this was going to be

:18:31.:18:35.

Derby's night. Their first win against the top 16 this season.

:18:36.:18:40.

Derby had plenty of defending to do and the keeper was at his best. The

:18:41.:18:46.

work was tireless. For 90 minutes they did everything needed to keep a

:18:47.:18:51.

clean sheet and claim the points. Even if at times it was unbearably

:18:52.:18:55.

tense. The fourth official decided they had to do it for another five

:18:56.:19:00.

minutes, bring on more agony, more worried and finally relief. The

:19:01.:19:05.

final whistle brought what Steve McClaren says was his finest victory

:19:06.:19:09.

at Derby whilst others are talking about automatic promotion, he is

:19:10.:19:13.

looking at the finish in the top six and the play`offs. We are looking at

:19:14.:19:18.

seventh position and how many points they have got and so that if the

:19:19.:19:25.

target at the present moment. Burnley, QPR, Leicester, they have

win at Huddersfield tonight. They're looking to extend their unbeaten run

:19:49.:19:51.

to a remarkable 16 games. Kirsty Edwards has been to see a man whose

:19:52.:19:53.

goals could be key. He scored eight goals so far this

:19:54.:20:10.

season and he has helped the red go on impressive run. 50 games without

:20:11.:20:12.

defeat `` 15. Simon Cox is loving life at Forest,

:20:13.:20:27.

he has eclipsed last seasons goal tally having only started in 20

:20:28.:20:32.

games. I had a couple of injuries which I am over now which is good.

:20:33.:20:38.

I feel like I am getting back to what I thought was my best. While

:20:39.:20:42.

the striking injury problems are behind him, the same can't be said

:20:43.:20:49.

for a number of his team mates, the captain Chris keirin, the defender

:20:50.:20:55.

and more recently Henry Lansbury and David Vaughan have picked up

:20:56.:20:58.

long`term injuries. Big players for us, influential

:20:59.:21:06.

players. But like I say, it is about the squad game and when one goes

:21:07.:21:10.

down, someone steps in and it gives someone else an opportunity to show

:21:11.:21:15.

what they can do. We are still buoyant and happy and smiles on the

faces. We feel we can go anywhere at any point and get a 0

their impressive run of 15 unbeaten. I am proud of that. I don't see why

:21:32.:21:37.

we can't do another 15 and go to the end of the season. Winning games

will keep us in the play`offs. Looking forward to that. Mansfield

Town's match with Bury 0 Looking forward to that. Mansfield

Town's match with Bury tonight was called off at lunchtime today.

Relentless rain this morning left the pitch in not state for football.

And finally, news from the Winter Olympics that Leicestershire

:21:54.:21:56.

bobsleigher Craig Pickering may be forced to retire because of injury.

:21:57.:21:59.

Pickering ` who lives in Coalville ` was a sprinter who missed London

:22:04.:22:06.

was ruled out of the Winter Games after suffering another back injury.

He's told BBC Radio Leicester it could end his athletic career

the scale of the flooding in the Home Counties and the Westcountry.

:22:48.:22:52.

Some really dramatic pictures here. Of course, the East Midlands isn't

Simon and I bring out some flood barriers. It is quite simple, it

barriers, none of them have flooded. They have been protected. The six

:24:32.:24:37.

properties with the water gates have been fine and protected. I feel much

tonight, some of us could be waking up to a dusting of snow first thing.
