on the BBC News channel, with all the very latest on the dramatic
day's With your news now for the East
Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. Former classmates of a young man who's been
missing now in Derby for three weeks, have been handing out
leaflets in the city today. They've also been filming their own appeal
for information about the disappearance of 20`year`old Nadish
Kunwar. Carol Hinds has more. Family and friends have been
searching for Nadish Kunwar since the end of January. The 20`year`old
studied media production at Derby College, and this afternoon his
former classmates were handing out leaflets. We are just hoping he is
safe. We're just hoping someone might have some information that
might help him. He went missing after a night out in the city centre
three weeks ago today. CCTV records in setting out on his journey home.
It is totally out of character for him, he always let everyone know
where he is, it is really unusual that he has gone missing and we are
concerned for him. His friends are making a short video which will be
posted on social media website. They want to get as much public attention
as possible because they are desperate to find him.
Hospital staff working in some parts of the Leicester Royal Infirmary
have had to be vaccinated against swine flu after an outbreak of the
virus on a children's ward. It affected six children on Ward 12
earlier this week. The unit was closed temporarily, but has since
reopened. All the children infected are said to be recovering. At this
stage, it's believed the outbreak came from a visitor to the hospital.
Lincolnshire Police say two rallies in Grantham today have passed off
peacefully. 250 officers from five forces escorted protestors from the
English Defence League as they marched to voice their opposition to
plans for an Islamic Centre in the town. The other rally was a counter
protest. Police say both were peaceful, and no arrests were made.
It is a real challenge for us. We are able to organise some time in
advance, which helps the cost to us. But we have got a signature can
number of officers here, and that will have an impact on other places.
Campaigners have been in Nottingham today calling for a region`wide
payrise for workers. The TUC held a rally in the city centre, joined by
the MP Lilian Greenwood. They say that while the economy has started
to show signs of growth, worker's wages are still lagging far behind
inflation. It's that gap they blame for the 'cost of living' crisis, as
they call it. Getting a pay rise is the quickest way for people to see
more money in their pockets, and people go out and spend that, and
that helps create other businesses and provide other people with a
salary. The 0 and provide other people with a
salary. The last four years, we have seen a real incomes declining. The
rise of food banks says that for everybody. One in five people are
earning below the living wage. For most people the pound in the pocket
is not buying people what it used to. The people of the East Midlands
and the rest of the country actually need to be earning enough to be able
to go out and purchase and to be able to actually live a decent life.
