military activity in the area tonight. That is all from

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight ` a police force under fire over a rape investigation. Former

:00:09.:00:17.

policeman Trevor Gray was acquitted, but only after his wife tracked down

:00:18.:00:23.

a key witness. It raises a puestion, did they have a preconceived idea

:00:24.:00:27.

that he was guilty? Also denied, the firm 's tr`ining an

:00:28.:00:32.

army of apprentices, and thdre are more in the pipeline.

:00:33.:00:38.

Plus, why we should all learn to use defibrillators. If it happened and

:00:39.:00:42.

you didn't know what to do, and you're stood there waiting for

:00:43.:00:47.

someone who does. And how this woman's swapped the

:00:48.:00:52.

suburbs for the mud and blood of a battlefield hospital.

:00:53.:00:59.

Welcome to Friday's programle. First tonight, the Police Federathon says

:01:00.:01:05.

the case of a detective who was wrongly convicted of rape r`ises

:01:06.:01:08.

serious questions about the integrity of the original

:01:09.:01:10.

investigation carried out bx Nottinghamshire police.

:01:11.:01:17.

Trevor Gray only cleared his name after his wife tracked down a key

:01:18.:01:20.

witness who'd been missed bx the police. The former detectivd now

:01:21.:01:24.

wants his job back, but the Force says it's waiting for the ddcision

:01:25.:01:29.

of an appeal tribunal. Here's our Chief News reporter Quentin Rayner.

:01:30.:01:36.

Former detective Trevor Grax is a free man only because his whfe

:01:37.:01:41.

turned detective. After he was wrongly convicted, she discovered a

:01:42.:01:45.

key witness had not been tr`ced With an four days of her putting out

:01:46.:01:48.

an appeal, the taxi driver was found. His evidence was crucial in

:01:49.:01:54.

overturning the conviction. The family complained about the way the

:01:55.:01:57.

case was investigated, only to find the officers assess in their

:01:58.:02:00.

complaint were the same ones who carried out the original

:02:01.:02:04.

investigation. I have littld, if any, faith in that team. I

:02:05.:02:11.

complained about themselves and the manner in which they conducted the

:02:12.:02:14.

investigation. Integrity, honesty, transparency? Questionable. The

:02:15.:02:19.

police Federation is funding his appeal. It raises the assumption

:02:20.:02:26.

that they had a preconceived idea that the start that they have

:02:27.:02:28.

apparently not even looked for that is... Such a crucial defencd

:02:29.:02:33.

witness. It raises the question with me, did they have a preconcdived

:02:34.:02:39.

idea that he was guilty and they have a preconceived idea th`t he was

:02:40.:02:41.

guilty and therefore stop looking for the truth? The IPCC is `lso

:02:42.:02:46.

looking at the case. Absolutely delighted. The IPCC commisshoner has

:02:47.:02:51.

assured me that a fully inddpendent investigation will be carridd out.

:02:52.:02:56.

Nottinghamshire police said Mr Gray is appealing his dismissal. In a

:02:57.:03:04.

statement, the force said, we take any report of sexual assault and

:03:05.:03:08.

rape extremely seriously and have a duty to investigate such

:03:09.:03:10.

allegations. Whoever they are made against. Trevor Gray says hd just

:03:11.:03:14.

wants his job back. His appdal should be heard by June.

:03:15.:03:19.

Next tonight ` learning a skill and getting paid for it. In the old days

:03:20.:03:23.

apprenticeships were a common route into the world of work ` and now

:03:24.:03:26.

they're back. Across the country the numbdr of

:03:27.:03:29.

apprenticeships is rocketing as the Government encourages more companies

:03:30.:03:34.

to give young people a chance. Which is why the Skills Minhster was

:03:35.:03:38.

in Leicester this afternoon visiting a state of the art training academy

:03:39.:03:42.

run by one of our biggest elployers. Mike O'Sullivan is there now.

:03:43.:03:52.

Give us a clue who this employer is. It is a big`name company, British

:03:53.:03:56.

Gas, which could trace the hndustry back to 1822 here in Leicester, when

:03:57.:04:00.

the gas street lighting was turned on. Today the company emploxs around

:04:01.:04:04.

about 4000 people in Leicestershire alone. It has got the

:04:05.:04:09.

state`of`the`art training academies. Part of the apprenticeships boom

:04:10.:04:13.

across the region. The skills Mr takes a look at some hands`on

:04:14.:04:19.

training. This is the British Gas Academy in Leicester. 50 people

:04:20.:04:23.

apply for each training place. Graduates and the over 20 is

:04:24.:04:28.

competing. Really lucky to be here, there was a lot of good people in

:04:29.:04:32.

the interview. I want to get as much out of this as I can. If yot have

:04:33.:04:37.

got a keen eagerness to learn, why not? The government is pourhng lots

:04:38.:04:43.

of money into subsidising apprenticeship training. Just over

:04:44.:04:49.

?1 billion nationally in 2009/1 . And around ?1.4 billion last year.

:04:50.:04:55.

The number of apprenticeship starts in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshhre and

:04:56.:04:59.

Leicestershire, and their corresponding cities, stood at more

:05:00.:05:03.

than 33,000 last year. That is up more than 73% on 2009`10. At British

:05:04.:05:13.

Gas, they received ?9,000 from the taxpayer towards the ?40,000 cost of

:05:14.:05:20.

training each apprentice. Wd have got leading facilities, which you

:05:21.:05:26.

can see here today. And we `re proud to have that. We offer the hndustry

:05:27.:05:34.

engineers. I want to see thd new norm that people, when they leave

:05:35.:05:38.

school, either go to university or into an apprenticeship. It hs our

:05:39.:05:42.

job in government not to push them one where the other, becausd

:05:43.:05:45.

university is right for somd people but not for everybody, it is our job

:05:46.:05:49.

to make sure there are good options available. British Gas hopes to

:05:50.:05:53.

train hundreds more engineers this year at this Academy. The mhnister

:05:54.:05:59.

was here as part of National apprenticeships week, the rtn`up to

:06:00.:06:03.

that, which is next week. In Nottingham, the city council is due

:06:04.:06:08.

to announce that they are t`king on 50 new apprentices in the

:06:09.:06:11.

:06:16.:06:19.

to be started on Wednesday. For details, search online or check out

:06:20.:06:24.

social media. Thanks very much indeed.

:06:25.:06:30.

Still to come ` skills of a different kind. Thousands of

:06:31.:06:33.

schoolchildren learn how to save a life.

:06:34.:06:36.

Plus, from art heavyweights to new talent. While Nottingham's Light

:06:37.:06:40.

Night is going to be an illtminating experience.

:06:41.:06:47.

The man accused of the attelpted murder of a Sikh spiritual leader is

:06:48.:06:51.

to face a retrial after a jtry failed to reach a verdict. Harjit

:06:52.:06:54.

Singh Toor from Oadby in Leicestershire attacked the Guru

:06:55.:07:00.

with an axe at a Leicester temple. His Holiness Sirisat Guru Uday Singh

:07:01.:07:03.

suffered a broken arm and a cut to his face. Toor said he only intended

:07:04.:07:08.

to hurt him and has admitted grievous bodily harm. The rdtrial is

:07:09.:07:13.

due to start at the end of next month.

:07:14.:07:16.

Next tonight ` creating a gdneration of life`savers. Thousands of

:07:17.:07:20.

children are taking part in the new Heartsafe campaign.

:07:21.:07:24.

It's about learning what to do if someone has a cardiac arrest. A

:07:25.:07:27.

local heart specialist wants to train every secondary school pupil

:07:28.:07:32.

in Leicester and Leicestershire Our health correspondent Rob Sissons

:07:33.:07:35.

reports A union says staff `t a Derbyshire factory have been

:07:36.:07:38.

completely devastated by thd news that 360 jobs are to go.

:07:39.:07:42.

There are about 60,000 cardhac arrest a week. About half of these

:07:43.:07:48.

are attended by the emergency medical services, and only 00%

:07:49.:07:54.

survive. Minutes are vital. Thousands of people will be involved

:07:55.:08:00.

in Heartsafe, one aim, to create life`savers. If you don't t`ke the

:08:01.:08:08.

head back, you won't get anx air in. Would you know what to do whth

:08:09.:08:12.

somebody stopped breathing properly? The pupils are being taught CPR

:08:13.:08:21.

Ante to use a later. `` and how to use eight fib relate. The children

:08:22.:08:29.

are fantastic. They act straightaway. Lights will bd saved.

:08:30.:08:34.

The idea came from a heart specialist to dreams of mord lives

:08:35.:08:40.

being saved. These pupils are first target, beyond that, straight into

:08:41.:08:44.

other years in schools, famhlies, sports clubs. Heartsafe has a

:08:45.:08:53.

high`profile backer. If it happened, and you're just stood here waiting

:08:54.:08:58.

for someone who does... One`woman collapse playing rounders. People

:08:59.:09:08.

gathered around me, kicking me. It is amazing, the people who have come

:09:09.:09:13.

together. You don't expect ht to be a strenuous as it is. The bhg hope

:09:14.:09:19.

is that today's children will be tomorrow's life`savers.

:09:20.:09:42.

A union says staff at a Derbyshire factory have been completelx

:09:43.:09:45.

devastated by the news that 360 jobs are to go. Sandvik in Swadlhncote is

:09:46.:09:48.

closing production of construction machinery and moving the opdration

:09:49.:09:51.

to Northern Ireland. The firm blames the slow pace of the global economic

:09:52.:09:54.

recovery. James Roberson reports. Today, the factory here in

:09:55.:09:56.

Swadlincote is quiet, as thd vast majority of workers are at home day

:09:57.:09:58.

jesting the information that 36 jobs are to go. News the unhons say

:09:59.:10:01.

that came completely out of the blue. The jobs are to go ovdr the

:10:02.:10:07.

next 12 months as the firm consolidates this factory's

:10:08.:10:08.

operations with its plant in Northern Ireland. The community the

:10:09.:10:13.

subcontractors in the supplx chain, they are affected. It is devastating

:10:14.:10:22.

for those members in the workplace. Sandvik, which makes heavy

:10:23.:10:26.

construction machinery, says they could not run two UK plans. Hence

:10:27.:10:32.

the move to County Tyrone. We have not seen any real market recovery

:10:33.:10:38.

since the post`financial crhsis of 2009. The local MP says she is

:10:39.:10:43.

hopeful other firms like Toxota Nestle and Brunel health care may

:10:44.:10:51.

have alternative positions. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. No stone

:10:52.:10:55.

will be left unturned. Workhng with Unite, working with managemdnt,

:10:56.:10:59.

rectors, we want to make sure those that want to have another job will

:11:00.:11:04.

find one. My next step is to get some cancers from the company, we

:11:05.:11:07.

were just told about this yesterday. We are totally in the

:11:08.:11:13.

dark. 80 jobs are being ret`ined in Swadlincote. The union starts talks

:11:14.:11:22.

tomorrow `` on Monday. Nottinghamshire county council has

:11:23.:11:25.

been criticised for dropping a welfare scheme for people f`cing

:11:26.:11:27.

financial hardship. The council approved the axing of the Wdlfare

:11:28.:11:30.

Assistance Fund yesterday as part of its budget plans for the next

:11:31.:11:32.

financial year. One of the biggest charities in the

:11:33.:11:36.

county says the decision will hurt those already suffering the most.

:11:37.:11:45.

Navtej Johal reports. This man has had a rough six months.

:11:46.:11:50.

He has Asperger's syndrome `nd spent a month in hospital after stffering

:11:51.:11:55.

psychotic episodes. Despite his situation, he was not eligible for a

:11:56.:12:00.

Nottingham county council scheme, set up to help vulnerable pdople as

:12:01.:12:04.

he was still employed. I felt rejected. If I can't get thd funding

:12:05.:12:13.

in my circumstances, who can? Through the help of a charity and a

:12:14.:12:17.

food bank, he has managed to get by, but he is one of many who h`s been

:12:18.:12:22.

turned down. One in four have had their application approved. And only

:12:23.:12:27.

around 10% of the money has been spent so far. Charities havd

:12:28.:12:31.

criticised the authority for making the criteria too harsh. The

:12:32.:12:36.

eligibility criteria is incredibly rigid. Many people find it `lmost

:12:37.:12:41.

impossible to access the fund, which explains the underspend. I think we

:12:42.:12:48.

targeted the resources perfdctly. We can use some of the fund we have not

:12:49.:12:53.

spent to provide services to people we have got a statutory is

:12:54.:12:57.

responsibility to. The council decided to end the fund as part of

:12:58.:13:02.

next year's budget. But where can people turn? Supporting people

:13:03.:13:08.

through our benefit advice service, we will retain full benefit workers,

:13:09.:13:11.

support people through supporting people programme. Even though he did

:13:12.:13:17.

not get the hell, this man hs hoping he can move on to a better chapter

:13:18.:13:21.

in his life. `` did not get the help.

:13:22.:13:24.

From Tracy Emin to Sarah Lucas, illuminating works by some of the

:13:25.:13:26.

UK's best known artists are featuring in a new exhibition of

:13:27.:13:31.

neon creations. It's part of Nottingham's annual

:13:32.:13:34.

Light Night ` an event that could also turn the spotlight on the work

:13:35.:13:39.

of local artists. Geeta Pendse reports.

:13:40.:13:46.

If you are rushing to catch a train at Nottingham station, it would be

:13:47.:13:52.

very easy to miss this building But those inside are hoping you will

:13:53.:13:54.

pause for a minute so they can illuminate your thoughts. From Tracy

:13:55.:14:04.

M into Sarah Lucas, these ndon works have been brought together `s part

:14:05.:14:09.

of Nottingham's Light Night. It all came about at this woman met Andy

:14:10.:14:18.

Colin Shaw, . A curator who happens to be friends with the artists. It

:14:19.:14:23.

is a great thing to have thdse artists exhibit out of London in a

:14:24.:14:29.

gallery in this crazy littld gallery on top of a really old building in

:14:30.:14:33.

the middle of Nottingham. It is quite special to have art of this

:14:34.:14:39.

calibre. In order to create this light effect, these tubes are

:14:40.:14:44.

moulded out of glass in temperatures of up to 500 Celsius. They `re then

:14:45.:14:52.

filled with argon gas and sdaled off so that when they come into contact

:14:53.:14:55.

with the source of electrichty, you get this light. Tonight, thd

:14:56.:15:00.

spotlight will also be on ndw talent. These porcelain sculptures

:15:01.:15:03.

were made to collaborate Thd Great War. `` to commemorate the great

:15:04.:15:13.

War. These works will be lighting up the walls for another six wdeks

:15:14.:15:24.

You need to go up how many flaws? I think there is a fourth floor, tiny

:15:25.:15:26.

little room. Still to come ` more evidence of our

:15:27.:15:30.

personal connections with the Great War. I meet the proud nephew of this

:15:31.:15:33.

young Nottingham woman who volunteered to be a nurse and lost

:15:34.:15:42.

her life in Northern France. It is time for sport. Doubld trouble

:15:43.:15:48.

tonight. Why have one sports presentdr when

:15:49.:15:53.

you can have two? Natalie is here because we want to take a closer

:15:54.:15:57.

look at our other two clubs first. She will take a look through it

:15:58.:16:00.

Let's start with Leicester, shall we? Can they continue to stdam

:16:01.:16:05.

roller the division? The bookies certainly think so, they have got

:16:06.:16:13.

them 10`1 to go up. They have also got odds of 33`1 for Leicester to

:16:14.:16:19.

avoid defeat between now and the end of the season. And why not?

:16:20.:16:24.

Leicester are looking good on the training field, they are eight

:16:25.:16:27.

points clear at the top of the championship. 13 games unbe`ten

:16:28.:16:32.

they have only lost once at home all season. Tomorrow they play Charlton

:16:33.:16:36.

at the King Power Stadium. Charlton have been a little bit of a bogey

:16:37.:16:46.

team. They are side that have been tough opponents for us in rdcent

:16:47.:16:53.

years. They managed to beat us earlier in the season. It whll be a

:16:54.:16:56.

tough game. They have got good players, tremendous spirit, Chris is

:16:57.:17:03.

very thorough in his prepar`tion. We know it will be a tough gamd and we

:17:04.:17:08.

will do our best to win it. That is Chris Powell. Angel`

:17:09.:17:12.

Rafferty will be at Leicestdr tomorrow for us and we'll h`ve a

:17:13.:17:15.

special feature on Monday. But what about Forest, Nat? There is quite a

:17:16.:17:19.

story there, isn't there? Yds. Injuries dominating ahead of the

:17:20.:17:22.

Wigan game at the City Ground tomorrow. We've got a graphhc here

:17:23.:17:29.

which shows the extent. Nind players out, nearly a whole team. Shx of

:17:30.:17:33.

them first`team regulars. The headline news is that Jack Hobbs has

:17:34.:17:40.

an ankle stress fracture. That is a serious injury, it means thd

:17:41.:17:43.

shortest timescale for him being out is six weeks. 6`10 weeks. On a

:17:44.:17:50.

slightly brighter note, Andx Reid has had his hernia operation today,

:17:51.:17:54.

and the early signs are that that went well. Thanks for a much indeed.

:17:55.:18:00.

At the beginning, I said thd big game is Derby's. They are in third

:18:01.:18:04.

place, and they go up against Burnley.

:18:05.:18:11.

This is the Derby County kit room. Everything is ready in here to take

:18:12.:18:15.

away for the big game. The players are ready as well. Time to see just

:18:16.:18:17.

how far Derby County have come. It is certainly one which everyone

:18:18.:18:36.

on the outside will be lookhng to. Can Burnley maintain what they are

:18:37.:18:41.

doing? Can Derby continue their innocence climb to the top dchelons

:18:42.:18:50.

of the Championship? We havd got a chance to play at an even bdtter

:18:51.:18:55.

level. I give everything evdry day. We will try our hardest. Much has

:18:56.:19:09.

been said about the free`flowing attacking football under Stdve

:19:10.:19:13.

McClaren, but just recently, we have seen a different side. Less goals,

:19:14.:19:20.

but at the back Derby have been unbreakable, they have kept three

:19:21.:19:27.

clean sheets in a row. We wdre disastrous against Yeovil and

:19:28.:19:30.

Birmingham, we conceded fivd goals in two games. That was a big shock.

:19:31.:19:35.

We have looked at that, addressed it. Trying to get the balance

:19:36.:19:40.

between still attacking and scoring goals, but making sure that we are

:19:41.:19:45.

not that open but we can throw leads away. They certainly have not been

:19:46.:19:51.

doing that lately, the Rams are unbeaten in their last seven games,

:19:52.:19:56.

including five wins. What c`n they do against second`place Burnley Big

:19:57.:20:01.

test for the team to see just how far we have come. Let's hopd we give

:20:02.:20:09.

a performance and get a restlt. In League One, it's another tough

:20:10.:20:13.

assignment for Notts County. They're struggling but have to face high

:20:14.:20:16.

flying Rotherham away from home Notts currently four points from

:20:17.:20:19.

safety. And Mansfield Town owe their fans a performance after behng

:20:20.:20:22.

hammered by Bury. They're off to East London to take on Dagenham

:20:23.:20:25.

Redbridge who are seven places but only two points above them.

:20:26.:20:29.

In cricket, Nottinghamshire's Michael Lumb is making his One Day

:20:30.:20:33.

debut for England in today's first ODI against the West Indies. His

:20:34.:20:36.

Outlaws colleague Alex Hales had been expected to play too btt was

:20:37.:20:40.

ruled out because of the knde strain. Stuart Broad was captain for

:20:41.:20:43.

the first time, won the toss and fielded. The West Indies made 2 9`6

:20:44.:20:51.

in their 50 overs. England were 67 without loss, with Michael Lumb at

:20:52.:21:08.

58. In rugby, we previewed Leicdster

:21:09.:21:12.

Tigers last night ` they're off to Newcastle on Sunday and it's an

:21:13.:21:15.

opportunity to cement their place in the all important Premiershhp Top

:21:16.:21:17.

Four. And Nottingham Panthers homd game

:21:18.:21:19.

with Sheffield tomorrow night is close to yet another sell ott. Less

:21:20.:21:23.

than a couple of hundred se`ts left last we heard.

:21:24.:21:26.

Now to the last in our week`long series of features about thd Great

:21:27.:21:29.

As the conflict raged on, Dorothea was sent to a succession of vast

military hospitals in Northdrn France to help treat thousands of

:21:36.:21:38.

injured soldiers. In rare moments of relaxation she wrote a serids of

:21:39.:21:41.

Dorothea Crewdson was a voltnteer nurse who from 1915 tended wounded

British soldiers behind the front line in France. Her diaries,

:22:40.:22:43.

beautifully illustrated with pen and ink sketches, paint a vivid picture

:22:44.:22:50.

of her water, water which she bore stoically. This is the beginning of

an entry on the 22nd of Aprhl. This is a sad, sad war indeed. It goes on

wrote a letter to her parents, raking the news that she didd of

than fortunate. Wonderful, gentle and loyal, helping her mind as well

I'm afraid it is looking quhte slim, as this particular solar storm

Yes, I kind of orangey one. We will leave you with this picture.
