station. First, tonight: a judge has condemned a group of Nottingham

:01:08.:01:10.

Forest football fans for starting a mass brawl with rival Doncaster

supporters. Today, four men were sent to prison. One of the

:01:14.:01:16.

supporters, described as a respected grandfather and former town

:01:17.:01:18.

councillor, was jailed for a year. He admitted throwing a bottle at a

:01:19.:01:21.

20`year`old man's face scarring him for life. The fight broke out on a

:01:22.:01:27.

train as fans travelled back from London, last year. The court heard

At Newark Northgate train station last April, three Nottingham Forest

:01:43.:01:45.

fans returning from the Millwall game clashed with seven Doncaster

:01:46.:01:55.

Rovers supporters. Rowdy behaviour began on the journey, then one of

the Forest group rang friends for back`up. Five other men turned up at

:01:59.:02:02.

the station intent, the court heard, on violence and disorder. Mayhem

:02:03.:02:10.

ensued. Fans were spitting at each other, shouting threats and abuse,

:02:11.:02:12.

exchanging punches and kicks, and throwing cans and bottles. As the

:02:13.:02:18.

violence erupted, a female passenger was seen cowering in fear. A

:02:19.:02:32.

customer service employee tried to intervene and was threatened with

:02:33.:02:35.

being thrown under the train. The witnesses described a scene of

:02:36.:02:38.

violence between two rival groups who couldn't care who else got

:02:39.:02:40.

involved. One 20`year`old Doncaster fan

:02:41.:02:42.

received serious facial injuries and will be scarred for life, after a

:02:43.:02:46.

shattered bottle hit him in the face. It was thrown by 54`year`old

Steve Marsden from Newark. This was him arriving at Nottingham Crown

:02:52.:02:54.

Court, today, where the judge was told he was of good character, a

:03:12.:03:14.

31`year`old Jamie Johnston, both from Newark. The judge said was

:03:15.:03:21.

clear that Nottingham Forest fans bore the brunt of the responsibility

for what he called disgraceful violence. When sentencing, he told

screaming into my mother's face that she comes when she's ready. She

:04:45.:04:51.

grabbed her arm, and round the back of the neck, and said, stay there,

:04:52.:04:55.

and you'll wait until I'm ready. She punched her in the chest and pushed

:04:56.:04:59.

her back into her wheelchair. Managers here say that Frith had

:05:00.:05:02.

worked here for five years, and had never had any problems in the past.

:05:03.:05:07.

When questioned about what had happened, she said that she had

:05:08.:05:12.

simply lost it. Frith, who's 29, was immediately suspended last October.

:05:13.:05:20.

Today, Edna's daughters visited the home to tell her that Frith was

Coming up later: A look at the weekend weather with Anna.

:05:47.:06:01.

If you have outdoor plans this weekend, there will be plenty of dry

:06:02.:06:07.

weather. But if you're after a sunshine, 0

:06:08.:06:07.

weather. But if you're after a sunshine, you are in luck. Saturday

:06:08.:06:11.

is looking promising. More details shortly.

:06:12.:06:18.

The daughter and son`in`law of an elderly couple found buried in their

:06:19.:06:21.

back garden in Mansfield, have pleaded not guilty to murder. The

:06:22.:06:25.

remains of William and Patricia Wycherley were discovered in

:06:26.:06:29.

October. They hadn't been seen for fifteen years. Tests revealed they'd

:06:30.:06:33.

been shot. At Nottingham Crown Court, Susan and Christopher Edwards

:06:34.:06:36.

denied two charges of murder. Their trial is due to start in June.

:06:37.:06:42.

A Nottingham man who went missing more than three years ago has been

:06:43.:06:45.

found safe and well. 27`year`old Stuart Higham was last seen in

:06:46.:06:48.

Mapperley Park in January 2011, after spending time with friends. It

:06:49.:06:55.

was thought that he may have travelled to Europe. Officers have

:06:56.:06:57.

now confirmed he's been discovered in Germany. His family's been told.

:06:58.:07:08.

The East Midlands is becoming nationally known for its efforts to

:07:09.:07:11.

use stem cells to treat people with blood cancers. The region now has

:07:12.:07:14.

four Anthony Nolan centres which gather blood from the umbilical

:07:15.:07:17.

cords of new`born babies. That's more than the rest of the country

:07:18.:07:20.

put together. The first units opened in Leicester in 2010. Today, two

:07:21.:07:24.

more were unveiled ` this time in Nottingham. James 0

:07:25.:07:26.

more were unveiled ` this time in Nottingham. James Roberson has more.

:07:27.:07:30.

Taking her daily tablets is a task that 67`year`old Gladys Smith

:07:31.:07:34.

doesn't mind. 18 months ago, she needed a bone marrow transplant for

:07:35.:07:37.

her leukaemia, but no relative was a match. Instead, she had two

:07:38.:07:43.

cordblood transplants to combat the illness.

:07:44.:07:46.

After the transplant, it took a little while ` I'm still quite

:07:47.:07:49.

tired, but quite quickly you start to pick up. I'm fine.

:07:50.:07:55.

Gladys wouldn't be here without staff like Penny Cole from the

:07:56.:07:59.

Anthony Nolan charity. At the QMC's maternity unit in Nottingham, Penny

:08:00.:08:02.

brings another donated the centre to a brand`new centre for technicians

:08:03.:08:14.

called cordblood collectors. ``donated placenta. The blood from

:08:15.:08:17.

the umbilical chord contains stem cells, as valuable as bone marrow in

:08:18.:08:20.

battling leukaemia. The stem cells are highly adaptable,

:08:21.:08:24.

so they can be used to treat a number of conditions. They can be of

:08:25.:08:27.

vital use for people who don't have a related stem cell donor.

:08:28.:08:35.

There are already Anthony Nolan collection centres at the Leicester

:08:36.:08:37.

Royal Infirmary and the last general. Now, another new one is

:08:38.:08:44.

also opening as the Nottingham city. This nurse specialises in blood

:08:45.:08:49.

disorders. Also pregnant, she is planning to donate her baby's

:08:50.:08:53.

umbilical cord blood when she gives birth.

:08:54.:08:58.

I look after patients who will be having transplants, so I'm aware of

:08:59.:09:02.

how important it is to get stem cells from umbilical cord is or from

:09:03.:09:07.

the bone marrow register. When I heard that the hospital would be

:09:08.:09:14.

starting this programme, I was excited by the opportunity to donate

:09:15.:09:19.

my baby's umbilical cord. There is another child constantly

:09:20.:09:24.

Gladys's minds. Somewhere, there is a little man

:09:25.:09:28.

running around he was trying to talk, who I am totally ` I can't

:09:29.:09:34.

tell anybody how much that Littlechild has done for me.

:09:35.:09:42.

That's so nice! Professor Nigel Russell from the

:09:43.:09:45.

City Hospital in Nottingham. How significant is the opening of the

:09:46.:09:48.

two collection centres in Nottingham today?

:09:49.:09:52.

I think it's of great significance. Nottingham is the home of the core

:09:53.:10:00.

cord blood bank itself. We will be able to feed into that with the

:10:01.:10:09.

donations. You do have to get permission from

:10:10.:10:15.

the mothers, don't you? Yes, of course. They gave full

:10:16.:10:20.

consent for the process. There is no harm for the mother or baby.

:10:21.:10:23.

Why is there such a concentration of these centres in the East Midlands?

:10:24.:10:29.

I think because of the core Lloyds Bank location, that's one thing. ``

core blood bank location. They can be sent to any 0

core blood bank location. They can be sent to any transplant centre in

:10:43.:10:47.

the United Kingdom, or abroad. We saw what a difference it has made

:10:48.:10:50.

from that lovely lady. Do we know everything about the benefits of

:10:51.:10:53.

stem cells, or is there more to learn?

:10:54.:11:01.

We are on an early learning curve with the use of cord blood

:11:02.:11:10.

transplants. Our patients have done fantastically well, so we're really

:11:11.:11:15.

pleased. If it's mainly leukaemia?

:11:16.:11:22.

Some rare congenital diseases can also be treated with cord blood

:11:23.:11:31.

transplants. Could it ever be an automatic thing

:11:32.:11:35.

when a baby is born that cord blood is donated?

:11:36.:11:39.

Some of the cord blood is used had been stored for several years

:11:40.:11:44.

already. It can be frozen, and they can pull it off the shelf and take

:11:45.:11:47.

it straight to the transplant centre. The process becomes much

:11:48.:11:50.

more rapid. Thank you very much. Police in

:11:51.:11:56.

Lincolnshire say they'll maintain a business as normal approach in

:11:57.:11:59.

Grantham tomorrow during a planned march by a right`wing group and a

:12:00.:12:01.

counter`demonstration. Members of the English Defence

:12:02.:12:05.

League will be escorted by a large number of police. This report from

:12:06.:12:16.

our Political Editor John Hess. The English Defence League has

:12:17.:12:19.

protested at what it sees as a growing Islamic influence in the UK.

:12:41.:12:45.

We have been asked why we haven't banned these marchers from going

:12:51.:12:54.

peaceably protest. Having allowed them to do that, it is still `` it

Will that persuade local residents? Not far from here, plans for Islamic

:13:15.:13:19.

Everyone is entitled to their own religious views. If they open a new

:13:45.:13:47.

the recent devastating floods, a group of leading environmentalists

:13:48.:13:50.

has told the government that better water management could have

:13:51.:13:53.

prevented some of the recent damage. Their advice comes as a river

Over the past few weeks, Britain has taken a battering. The devastating

that, in future, the Welland will slow all year instead of stagnating

:15:52.:15:57.

in the summer. People in a Derbyshire town could be the ones to

:15:58.:16:01.

decide how it looks in the future. The local council in Ripley wants to

:16:02.:16:05.

hold a public referendum ` so people can have a say about where

:16:06.:16:08.

developers can and can't build. It's thought that could alter the plans

:16:09.:16:11.

which the borough council has for the area. The referendum idea will

:16:12.:16:15.

be considered next month by Amber Valley Council.

:16:16.:16:21.

The story of Richard the Third's rise and fall is to be told at a

:16:22.:16:25.

Conference at the University of Leicester this weekend. The event

:16:26.:16:28.

will include talks from the team of experts who located, unearthed and

:16:29.:16:31.

identified the King's remains. They were found under a council car park

:16:32.:16:35.

in the city over a year ago. Meanwhile, the hunt is on now to

:16:36.:16:39.

find a new manager to run Leicester's Richard the Third

:16:40.:16:42.

Visitor Centre. Still to come ` taking art off the

:16:43.:16:46.

wall and walking all over it. We've been to one of the oldest Churches

:16:47.:16:50.

in the East Midlands which now has a rather special floor.

:16:51.:17:01.

First, could this be the year that our sleeping football giants return

:17:02.:17:13.

to the Premier League? Leicester, Derby and Forest all in the top five

:17:14.:17:24.

in the Championship. But what are the odds? One bookmaker tonight says

:17:25.:17:28.

7`1. A good price! Could it really happen? Angela Rafferty reports.

:17:29.:17:34.

All three teams are pushing for promotion. All three teams sitting

:17:35.:17:39.

pretty in the top five. If it's the Premier League you're aiming for,

:17:40.:17:42.

the East Midlands is the place to be.

:17:43.:17:52.

You need one of these Midland teams in the Premier League. Leicester are

:17:53.:17:56.

the favourites at the moment, Nottingham Forest are fighting

:17:57.:17:59.

behind. It's going to be a very interesting end to the season, I

:18:00.:18:01.

think. 0 think.

:18:02.:18:07.

It's been years since one of our teams have been in the top flight,

:18:08.:18:11.

but could this be the season that all that will finally change?

:18:12.:18:15.

You're talking about three huge clubs. You're talking about clubs

:18:16.:18:20.

that are great rivals. It's always nice for the area, and for the clubs

:18:21.:18:23.

and the supporters to have that rivalry.

:18:24.:18:31.

We understand what it means to our fans, and I'm sure all three clubs

:18:32.:18:34.

would like to finish higher than each other.

:18:35.:18:47.

It's good for the local area, but I'd like to see off on top. Whether

:18:48.:18:50.

we can catch Leicester, I don't know.

:18:51.:18:53.

All three East 0 know.

:18:54.:18:55.

All three East Midlands clubs going up ` it will be amazing, won't it?

:18:56.:18:59.

As long as Leicester go up, I'd like to see Forest and Derby go up with

:19:00.:19:02.

us. Still, 15 games to go and everything

:19:03.:19:05.

to play for. Could Premier League football finally be back in these

:19:06.:19:08.

Midland? And might Leicester, Forest and Derby all be playing there?

:19:09.:19:16.

Well, in League One, Notts County have their own big challenge, to

behind. She was subjected to awful abuse on

social media. She was hoping to put that behind her today, which dreams

of Olympic glory have ended a nightmare.

I really wanted to bounce back. This was my last chance. To have it taken

away, it's just devastating. I will come back in four years, and I will

Let's talk about the weather. It's probably been the quietest weeks

since the start of the year. We've had some dry weather, some sunshine,

tomorrow. Let's talk about the weekend weather. A lot of dry

weather around. Saturday looks the best, with lots of sunshine. It's

:26:19.:26:23.

breezy throughout, with strong, strengthening winds on Sunday. A few

:26:24.:26:27.

showers through the afternoon, and that's how we continued through the

evening. They slowly started to fizzle out, so I dry end to the

Knights. Temperatures will drop down to a low of four degrees tonight.

There are maybe a little bit of grass frost in rural areas. There

will be some lovely sunshine throughout the morning tomorrow. We

:26:51.:26:54.

do start to see more in the way of cloud in the afternoon. It may

produce one or two showers. But I suspect we will remain generally

dry. A high`temperature of nine, but it is a breezy day with

south`westerly winds. On Sunday, the cloud is producing some patchy,

light rain and drizzle. Keep an eye on this area of rain, which starts

moving during the evening. The winds will strengthen, so strong, gusty

winds. That's how we start the new week ` a very wet and windy start on
