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

:00:00.:00:10.

Tonight: Protests, campaigns and petitions. But the axe still falls.

:00:11.:00:22.

Councillors approve a budget cut. If there was an easy way to avoid these

:00:23.:00:26.

reductions, we would do, but there are not.

:00:27.:00:34.

Death in Cyprus, Daniel's grieving family demand answers. Losing your

:00:35.:00:38.

child is unbearable. The fact that we don't know what has

:00:39.:00:45.

happened to him, we have to live with that.

:00:46.:00:52.

Plus, screening for breast cancer, why are 100,000 women still missing

:00:53.:00:54.

out? And, and astonishing eyewitness

:00:55.:01:01.

account of the great War was Erik Lesser famous Christmas Day truce. A

:01:02.:01:05.

voice came over from the German lines, happy Christmas, English.

:01:06.:01:09.

To which we replied, happy Christmas, Fritz.

:01:10.:01:18.

Good evening, and welcome to Thursday's programme.

:01:19.:01:22.

First tonight: Campaigners have been protesting outside Nottinghamshire

:01:23.:01:24.

County Council against planned budget cuts of ?83 million. The

:01:25.:01:31.

final budget was being thrashed out today, but it's expected to lead to

:01:32.:01:35.

hundreds of job cuts, and a reduction in many services.

:01:36.:01:37.

Protesters say the cuts are unnecessary and will have a huge

:01:38.:01:40.

impact on the people of Nottinghamshire. The council,

:01:41.:01:46.

though, say they have no choice and have to make tough decisions. Sarah

:01:47.:01:50.

Teale joins us in the studio with more.

:01:51.:01:55.

This graph shows quite clearly why cuts are having to be made. You can

:01:56.:02:02.

see the funding gap between the budget which is needed to continue

:02:03.:02:05.

running all the current services, and the actual budget which is

:02:06.:02:08.

expected. And the difference is ?154 million which will need to be saved

:02:09.:02:12.

over the next three years. Just over an hour ago, ?83 million of cuts

:02:13.:02:16.

were finalised. The council say they are essential. Protesters disagree.

:02:17.:02:29.

Protesters were in fine voice this morning outside Nottinghamshire

:02:30.:02:34.

County Council. They were here to demonstrate against a cut in funding

:02:35.:02:40.

to Nottingham Playhouse. More protests came later from Unison

:02:41.:02:44.

opposing the principle of all council cuts. During public

:02:45.:02:49.

consultation, 38,000 people gave their views, many showing strong

:02:50.:02:53.

support for the Playhouse. Even famous names joined the campaign to

:02:54.:02:57.

save its funding. Why do you think they have not listened?

:02:58.:03:01.

I think they had made up their mind already. In all honesty, I don't

:03:02.:03:13.

think it is a genuine consultation. This is not about getting them to

:03:14.:03:17.

change their mind, this is about getting them to think about the

:03:18.:03:20.

future and how they can support us in other ways.

:03:21.:03:23.

Why can't they give more money to the most vulnerable people who need

:03:24.:03:26.

our care and support. Amanda agrees with that sentiment, her son has

:03:27.:03:31.

respite care at a short break centre in Chilwell. It has had one year's

:03:32.:03:37.

reprieve from closure but it will still have to shut. To lose it all

:03:38.:03:41.

together will be devastating. To pull him out of that environment

:03:42.:03:45.

and put Tim Sommer Alves is not going to be an easy thing. Not just

:03:46.:03:51.

him or the other adults, it will affect all of them. The council

:03:52.:03:56.

leader call the decision is painful and sickening.

:03:57.:04:02.

120 different savings proposals had been decided, including council tax

:04:03.:04:08.

going up nearly 2%. School dinners increasing by 10p. A reduction in

:04:09.:04:14.

youth centres, closures of day services, and recycling centres.

:04:15.:04:18.

Council reserves of ?42 million are being drawn on to fund capital

:04:19.:04:23.

projects like the widening of roads. These cuts today did not

:04:24.:04:29.

single `` signal the end of thing. There are still millions of pounds

:04:30.:04:33.

of savings to come to close that funding gap.

:04:34.:04:39.

The leader of the council is with us, he has come straight from the

:04:40.:04:45.

meeting. The government has been saying these cuts are relatively

:04:46.:04:50.

modest. Is what you have done today necessary? If there were an easier

:04:51.:04:55.

way of dealing with it, we would have taken that route. There is no

:04:56.:05:03.

alternative for us. This council is dramatically underfunded by the

:05:04.:05:08.

government. We inherited an hundred and ?32 million budget deficit, we

:05:09.:05:14.

lost ?20 million in grants. We have to make savings. Can we talk about

:05:15.:05:22.

efficiency. This document drawn up by the Department of local

:05:23.:05:27.

government, 50 examples of sensible savings, sharing back office

:05:28.:05:31.

functions, cutting free sandwiches in meeting. Have you explored every

:05:32.:05:36.

avenue to become more efficient? I have a copy of that in my briefcase,

:05:37.:05:41.

I have read it. A great many of those things we are doing. We are

:05:42.:05:48.

cutting back. The last thing we want to do is affect front line services,

:05:49.:05:52.

particularly for our most vulnerable residents. We saw in that report,

:05:53.:06:00.

there is a day centre you are cutting. You did say you would make

:06:01.:06:03.

sure vulnerable adults are protected, that does not seem to

:06:04.:06:08.

have happened. Where we can, we are doing. It is not possible because of

:06:09.:06:13.

the huge level of savings we are forced to make, it is not possible

:06:14.:06:18.

to save every single facility people tell us they need. We have looked

:06:19.:06:23.

very carefully where we are cutting, the level of use, alternative

:06:24.:06:32.

facilities available locally. It is a very difficult time for us. Thank

:06:33.:06:36.

you for coming in. A grieving mother from

:06:37.:06:42.

Leicestershire says she'll keep fighting for answers about how her

:06:43.:06:45.

son died, 2,000 miles away. Daniel Brewster from Coalville was found

:06:46.:06:48.

with fatal head injuries while on holiday in Cyprus. His family say

:06:49.:06:51.

the police have dismissed his death as a "drunken Brit abroad". They've

:06:52.:06:54.

been speaking to our reporter Helen Astle.

:06:55.:07:03.

Sometimes, I wake up and I cannot believe this has happened. For

:07:04.:07:10.

current Brewster, it has been a harrowing year. Last June, her

:07:11.:07:15.

23`year`old son Daniel flew to Cyprus to be a best man at a

:07:16.:07:19.

wedding. On a night out before the ceremony, he became separated from

:07:20.:07:24.

his friends. He was later found with serious head injuries under this

:07:25.:07:28.

large concrete plant pot. Police say Daniel must have lifted it up and

:07:29.:07:33.

the plant pot fell onto his head. The container did not break. Daniel

:07:34.:07:39.

died days later in hospital. I wish I could piece together and say this

:07:40.:07:47.

could have happened. It is absolutely feasible. But I find it

:07:48.:07:54.

difficult. Impossible. They cannot understand how he came to be

:07:55.:07:59.

injured, and said the police had been dismissive. I got the

:08:00.:08:02.

impression it was being put down to a Brit abroad, if you drinks, an

:08:03.:08:09.

accident. I asked the police officer if he could accompany us to the

:08:10.:08:13.

scene and explain how this had come about. Although it was only a

:08:14.:08:20.

five`minute ride away, he said he didn't have time to do that. Losing

:08:21.:08:29.

your child, unbearable. But, the fact that we don't know what has

:08:30.:08:33.

happened to him, and we have to live with that. It is so painful. The

:08:34.:08:40.

inquest is due to be held in Cyprus at the end of March. Karen and David

:08:41.:08:44.

are fundraising to pay for a solicitor so they can try to get

:08:45.:08:48.

answers to what happened to Daniel, and why.

:08:49.:08:51.

Still to come: It's colder, but no snow.

:08:52.:08:57.

Here's Anna, with a look ahead to the forecast.

:08:58.:09:05.

Our beautiful spring flowers are set to feel the chill, as temperatures

:09:06.:09:10.

plummet. Thankfully, this note is staying away. More details later.

:09:11.:09:17.

Next tonight: 100,000 women missed out on breast screening in the East

:09:18.:09:23.

Midlands last year. The latest figures are out today. When it comes

:09:24.:09:27.

to 53 to 70`year`olds, our part of the world does better than anywhere

:09:28.:09:31.

else in England. But, as our health correspondent Rob Sissons reports,

:09:32.:09:34.

it still leaves one in five women not taking up the invite. Surely's

:09:35.:09:46.

cancer was picked up early following in routine screening appointment.

:09:47.:09:52.

One year on, she is doing well. She remembers she cannot forget hearing

:09:53.:09:56.

the word which knocked her sideways. I never heard another word after

:09:57.:10:03.

they said the word, cancer. I was shaking. I couldn't tell my family.

:10:04.:10:09.

How do you bring it up? By the way, I have got breast cancer. It is

:10:10.:10:16.

about spotting subtle changes, even before women experience symptoms.

:10:17.:10:20.

Breast screening saves lives but, between one in four and one in five

:10:21.:10:28.

women women eligible for the test do not go for them. The Nottingham

:10:29.:10:32.

Breast Institute says it is simple and quick.

:10:33.:10:34.

The mammogram only takes a couple of minutes. All of the nurses are

:10:35.:10:38.

female. They are used all shapes and sizes. It is not a panful test. Some

:10:39.:10:50.

women find it uncomfortable. Take`up for 53 to 73`year`olds was 80%. 76%

:10:51.:10:55.

was the England average. It means 100,000 missed out on the breast

:10:56.:11:02.

screening. Women aged between 50 and up to 74 will get an invite to

:11:03.:11:06.

screening. If a woman hasn't attended before, please think about

:11:07.:11:12.

going this year if that invitation arrives.

:11:13.:11:20.

For every death prevented, about three cases are identified and

:11:21.:11:24.

treated. Take`up has improved because of mobile clinics. Last

:11:25.:11:32.

year, we had at least 160 ladies picked up with breast cancer, using

:11:33.:11:35.

their mobiles. So it is something we want to carry on with.

:11:36.:11:38.

Women need to be registered with their GP to get an invite.

:11:39.:11:46.

A Nottingham Forest football has been cleared after not king Iman to

:11:47.:11:53.

the ground in a restaurant. He hit the man, insect organs, leaving him

:11:54.:11:58.

needing surgery. It happened in 2012 on New Year.

:11:59.:12:05.

Today, a jury found him not guilty of grievous bodily harm.

:12:06.:12:22.

The factory that was once home to a major Derby employer is to be

:12:23.:12:27.

demolished. Permission's been given to clear the now largely empty

:12:28.:12:30.

celanese plant at Spondon. The chemical manufacturing site's the

:12:31.:12:33.

size of 110 football pitches. At its height, it employed 20,000 people.

:12:34.:12:36.

Most production ended in 2011. It's not yet known what'll replace it.

:12:37.:12:39.

Rolls`Royce says it hasn't yet decided exactly where it will build

:12:40.:12:42.

its next generation of aeroengines. As we reported yesterday the new

:12:43.:12:45.

models will be 25% more fuel efficient than the first versions of

:12:46.:12:48.

its existing Trent engines. Staff will be hoping that Derby is chosen

:12:49.:12:52.

as the main plant to make them. But the firm has emphasised that the

:12:53.:12:56.

aeroengine industry is a global one. Simon Hare has been to take a look

:12:57.:13:03.

at the new technology. Rolls`Royce says the future is

:13:04.:13:06.

bright, the future is turquoise. Turquoise is just the final paint

:13:07.:13:09.

colour we've put on it. Fundamentally, it's a carbon fibre

:13:10.:13:16.

blade under there. This is the latest fan blade

:13:17.:13:19.

technology for its two new generations of engines.

:13:20.:13:21.

It saves significant weight, around 750 pounds for an engine of this

:13:22.:13:25.

size. An airliner that can save that amount of weight can then afford to

:13:26.:13:28.

fly another seven or eight passengers.

:13:29.:13:31.

That will make them more efficient than the existing Trent engines. The

:13:32.:13:34.

latest of which hasn't even entered service yet. For the moment, they

:13:35.:13:38.

have been called "advance" and "ultra" fan. A final decision on

:13:39.:13:43.

their actual names will be taken later. But, for many, there's a

:13:44.:13:47.

bigger question to answer. Will it be built in Derby? We don't know at

:13:48.:13:51.

the moment, is the honest answer. We've developed a lot of the

:13:52.:13:54.

technology here, but also in the rest of Europe. At the moment, it's

:13:55.:14:02.

a technology and research programme, and where we finally do the

:14:03.:14:05.

production will be subject to a much later decision. Although there are a

:14:06.:14:09.

lot of people employed in Derby, we are a global company, so we do use

:14:10.:14:13.

skills around the world. It's tested here, a lot of the design work was

:14:14.:14:17.

done here. But, equally, some of the technology has come from our plants

:14:18.:14:20.

in Germany and elsewhere in the United States.

:14:21.:14:22.

We recognise it is a global company, but they have been here for

:14:23.:14:25.

over 100 years. The two are definitely linked. What is good for

:14:26.:14:27.

Rolls`Royce is always good for Derby.

:14:28.:14:30.

It is hoped the new engines will be ready within ten years.

:14:31.:14:35.

Volunteers at food banks say they're handing out a growing number of

:14:36.:14:40.

parcels to people who are in work, but still can't afford food. Indeed,

:14:41.:14:43.

many charity food projects here in the East Midlands are reporting

:14:44.:14:46.

their busiest year ever. Jo Healey reports.

:14:47.:14:51.

Jess works full`time, but earns little. Something had to give.

:14:52.:15:01.

I was missing meals so my daughter could eat, basically, because things

:15:02.:15:05.

were getting quite tough. Although it was tough, she didn't think she

:15:06.:15:08.

could have food parcels because she works. But so do many people who

:15:09.:15:13.

come here to Ilkeston. It was more the people on benefits and

:15:14.:15:18.

pensioners. But now we've found a massive increase, it has probably

:15:19.:15:21.

tripled now, in the working sector. So, people who have jobs but still

:15:22.:15:26.

need food? Yeah. This is a typical food parcel for a

:15:27.:15:29.

single adult, to last them around three days. They, plus couples, who

:15:30.:15:33.

get a bit more, account for around 70% of the people who come here. And

:15:34.:15:37.

this is a typical children's pack, and they account for 27% of all food

:15:38.:15:45.

parcels handed out here each year. Homeless people account for just 3%.

:15:46.:15:49.

This week, a Shadow Minister visited, and heard they provided

:15:50.:15:56.

2,500 meals here last year alone. Speaking to people, it's a lot of

:15:57.:16:00.

people you would not expect to be here at a food bank, the majority of

:16:01.:16:04.

which are in work or desperately seeking work.

:16:05.:16:06.

Jess says, if she needed to now, she would go to her local food bank in

:16:07.:16:11.

Eastwood. And it seems many more people are having to do just that.

:16:12.:16:22.

Still to come, our latest Great War feature.

:16:23.:16:26.

Time now for the sports news. Coming up: The Leicester lads, in

:16:27.:16:29.

rugby and in cricket. But we'll start with some football

:16:30.:16:32.

news, because Nottingham Forest have lost a third key player to injury.

:16:33.:16:36.

Midfielder Andy Reid is out for up to six weeks with a hernia problem.

:16:37.:16:40.

He's been a big part of Forest's season, but will have an operation

:16:41.:16:43.

this week. All three of our clubs could be

:16:44.:16:47.

represented on the pitch at the iPro for the England Under`21s match with

:16:48.:16:50.

Wales on Wednesday night. Leicester's Liam Moore, Forest's

:16:51.:16:52.

Jamal Lascelles, and Derby's Patrick Bamford and Will Hughes, are all in

:16:53.:16:56.

Gareth Southgate's squad. Rugby's Leicester Tigers now. At

:16:57.:17:01.

Newcastle this weekend, they could well be led again by Ed Slater. His

:17:02.:17:05.

story is incredible. He came very late to the game, he was 21 when he

:17:06.:17:09.

came to Tigers as injury cover. Less than four years on, he's just

:17:10.:17:13.

captained them, and is breaking into the England side. Kirsty Edwards

:17:14.:17:14.

reports. He is a big man who is experienced.

:17:15.:17:27.

Last Sunday was one of his proudest moments yet. It was huge for me.

:17:28.:17:35.

Obviously, I was a big supporter of the club as a kid so I am aware of

:17:36.:17:39.

the people who have done the job before. The people I have played

:17:40.:17:43.

with have got a lot of experience. To lead 0

:17:44.:17:43.

with have got a lot of experience. To lead the side at was massive for

:17:44.:17:45.

me. Ed Slater has established himself at

:17:46.:17:56.

the heart of the side and recently got called up for England. Amazing,

:17:57.:18:01.

considering he only took up rugby at the age of 15 and didn't turn

:18:02.:18:06.

professional until he was 21. I had never heard of him when he turned up

:18:07.:18:12.

wanting to play. OK, you can train with us. He has a great attitude.

:18:13.:18:17.

Physically very good. A little bit of aggression. It shows you don't

:18:18.:18:20.

have to come through academies, you can turn up. Turn up and if you are

:18:21.:18:27.

better than the people we have got, you can play. Which is what he did.

:18:28.:18:33.

He was picked to lead the side last weekend ahead of more experienced

:18:34.:18:37.

team`mates. He jokingly points out he has a 100% record as captain. We

:18:38.:18:43.

were having a laugh about that. I was really happy with the wind. A

:18:44.:18:48.

lot of criticism has come our way particularly after the Gloucester

:18:49.:18:52.

game. It was a big step in the right direction for us as a team, to get

:18:53.:18:56.

that win, to have three on the bounce, it is a huge boost for us.

:18:57.:18:59.

He may have 0 bounce, it is a huge boost for us.

:19:00.:19:02.

He may have trodden a very different path than most in this sport, but Ed

:19:03.:19:06.

Slater is still very much on the road to glory.

:19:07.:19:14.

They play at the weekend, but there was some action last night in ice

:19:15.:19:19.

hockey, with Nottingham Panthers demolishing Coventry 7`2. Amazing

:19:20.:19:23.

what a fully fit squad can do. He's been talked about in the same

:19:24.:19:26.

breath as Sachin Tendulkar. He features on almost every list of

:19:27.:19:29.

future England cricket stars but, even in the middle of preparing for

:19:30.:19:33.

an operation on a hand injury, Leicestershire's Shiv Thakor hasn't

:19:34.:19:35.

forgotten where he's come from. I was with him as he went back to his

:19:36.:19:38.

old school 0 was with him as he went back to his

:19:39.:19:40.

old school to try and inspire a new generation.

:19:41.:19:46.

Around a decade ago, some Leicestershire Police it is stood in

:19:47.:19:53.

this assembly hall, and inspired a young shift back. Now he is doing

:19:54.:19:57.

the same. If we can inspire them, not just to play cricket but to stay

:19:58.:20:01.

active for a long time, we will have a positive incident `` influence.

:20:02.:20:08.

They have certainly not forgotten him here. I have been told, here we

:20:09.:20:18.

are. The first name on there. It made me wonder what people he had

:20:19.:20:24.

actually been. Best to ask my teachers. If I had 30 of him in my

:20:25.:20:31.

class, it would have been lovely. He was quite a caring child. It is not

:20:32.:20:38.

like that now! In the end, it is all about the cricket. This road show

:20:39.:20:46.

links directly into games divertimento. There is no point of

:20:47.:20:50.

doing six Weezer cricket and leaving them. We chain the teachers, the

:20:51.:20:59.

kids as coaches `` train. The man himself has come a long way from

:21:00.:21:04.

being this 11`year`old. A nasty finger injury is on his way right

:21:05.:21:09.

now, but top level England recognition is the target. I am

:21:10.:21:14.

fully aware there was a shake up going on in England. I'm probably

:21:15.:21:18.

six games away from being up there. It is at the back of my mind. I need

:21:19.:21:25.

For many, the centenary of the start of World War One is a time to

reflect on the role played by relatives in the conflict. Through

the BBC's World War One At Home project, we've discovered diaries

and photographs that have lain unseen for years. As well as paper

audio interviews conducted with former soldiers. One tape was

labelled with the name Arthur Tugwell, but no more information.

:22:08.:22:10.

Well, after an appeal on BBC Radio Leicester, his family came forward.

:22:11.:22:13.

I went to meet them, to find out more about Arthur, and the famous

Christmas Day truce of 1914 which he actually witnessed.

the famous Christmas Day truce in 1914.

MAN: During Christmas Eve, there was very little firing from either our

trench, or from the Germans' side. During the night, it ceased

parapet. Candles. He served in the London Regiment,

German lines. Happy Christmas, English. To which we replied, happy
