The spotlight falls on the long delays facing patients in Leicester.

:00:16.:00:24.

It was chaos. There is queueing with people in wheelchairs.

:00:25.:00:28.

Also tonight, the Government steps in to strip the trust of control

over newly created Academy. Plus, the World War I aero`engine

:00:56.:00:59.

Good evening and welcome. First tonight, the continuing crisis at

:01:00.:01:01.

Leicester's accident and emergency unit. It's relied upon by more than

:01:02.:01:07.

a million people, but has proved unreliable when it comes to waiting

:01:08.:01:20.

times. Four hours is the target, and it is not being met.

:01:21.:01:25.

Ever increasing numbers of patients, delays sending patients home and

:01:26.:01:28.

people who don't really need to be there clogging up the waiting room

:01:29.:01:30.

are all part of problem. 0 there clogging up the waiting room

:01:31.:01:32.

are all part of problem. Now health campaigners are preparing for talks

:01:33.:01:35.

with the hospital boss to air their concerns. Our health correspondent

:01:36.:01:37.

Rob Sissons reports. Record numbers of patients are being

:01:38.:01:41.

brought to Leicester's accident and emergency unit. But the 0

:01:42.:01:44.

brought to Leicester's accident and emergency unit. But the centre has

:01:45.:01:48.

been struggling to hit target times. The national waiting time targets

:01:49.:01:51.

for a need apart is is to deal with 95% of patients within four hours.

:01:52.:01:58.

In Leicester the latest week's figures has shown the hospital trust

:01:59.:02:05.

has managed only 84%, and 74% with major cases. That means it is one in

:02:06.:02:11.

only five trusts in the country where 80% of patients are dealt

:02:12.:02:18.

within four hours. Our experience is that it is OK.

:02:19.:02:23.

People are the priority. So they have to do something about it.

:02:24.:02:31.

Hospital bosses at Leicester Royal infirmary say the unit was built for

:02:32.:02:37.

100,000 patients every year, it is now seeing nearly twice that. The

:02:38.:02:40.

aim is to keep waiting time stamp, but the reasons for delay is

:02:41.:02:49.

conjugated. `` are contributed. We cannot cope with the level of

:02:50.:02:54.

demand. We currently have between 60 and 80 patients in our beds on any

:04:04.:04:05.

A Nottinghamshire school is one of ten being removed from the control

:04:06.:04:08.

of a chain of state`funded academies in England. A new sponsor will now

:04:09.:04:14.

have to be found for the Sherwood Academy in Gedling.

:04:15.:04:17.

The decision comes after Ofsted inspectors raised serious concerns

:04:18.:04:20.

about the performance of schools run by the E`ACT trust. Quentin Rayner

:04:21.:04:21.

reports. 0 In 2010 Gedling School was fighting

:04:22.:04:37.

for survival. The County Council considered closing it. Switching to

:04:38.:04:42.

Academy status was an option to keep the school open. The E`ACT trust was

:04:43.:04:47.

chosen to run it, and it's then director`general made his pledge. We

:04:48.:04:51.

will build on the strengths the school has undoubtedly got, and

:05:18.:05:24.

cannot see anything wrong with the school. I want my son to achieve, so

:05:25.:05:32.

it is very disturbing and worrying. The new system was designed to

remove schools from local authorities controls. I think what

:05:37.:05:39.

we are seeing is a demonstrator will failure of the policy in relation to

:05:40.:05:46.

academies. `` demonstrate ball. `` demonstrable.

:05:47.:05:57.

The trust now has to help find new sponsors for the affected academies.

:05:58.:06:06.

The Government says it acts swiftly to address underperformance in all

:07:29.:07:32.

reported on plans to bring Trent Bridge out of the gloom. Costing

:07:33.:07:39.

?150,000 and paid for by donations, the idea was to flood the bridge

:07:40.:07:42.

with lighting. Today The City Council's Deputy Leader caught up

:07:43.:07:46.

with those plans and there is a problem. We have got to consider

bats. It may well be there is a maternity column under the bridge,

but we have got to wait until May at least to find out. He may not look
