With your news now for the Dast Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.
The father and friends of a young man who recently died in Derby have
made an emotional journey to retrace his final steps. 20`year`old Nadish
Kunwar had been missing thrde weeks before a body ` believed to be his `
was found in the River Derwdnt. Simon Ward was at today's mdmorial
walk. It was an ordeal even to le`ve the
House. Deepak Kunwar has lost his only child. Nadish was a Derby
College student,. Three weeks after going missing, a body was found in
the River Derwent. People from the Nepalese community came frol places
across England, and joined today's walk to commemorate his lifd.
The good thing about the Nepalese community, they are really close to
each other, they want to give support because most of thel don't
have their immediate family available here.
They walked along the same route Nadish is thought to have t`ken
including past BBC Radio Derby where he was pictured on CCTV images. They
walked towards Pride Park, `long the River Derwent where the bodx was
found. Here, flowers and incense were placed to remember Nadhsh. His
grief`stricken father told ts he was pleased by so much support.
It was nice to be together hn this sadly emotional period. Everyone is
helpful for each other, the local community and all the Nepaldse
community, I'd like to thank everyone.
The police investigation into what happened is continuing, and the
family are waiting for form`l identification of the body.
Tributes were read on behalf of the Nepalese community. We pray to God
that they will find some colfort in him to cope with the situathon. The

Ukrainians living in the East Midlands have been rallying in
Leicester this afternoon. They said prayers, held a minute's silence and
sang to show their support for fellow Ukrainians killed in Kiev.
They also urged President Pttin of Russia to back down and to pull his
troops out of Ukrainian territory. It would be very hard if war starts,
but I pray that will not happen If the world stands up against
President Putin, he will have two back down. I worry because H have
relations in Ukraine, and I am very worried.
People living near a former chemical site in Derby are being reassured
work to clear it is being undertaken with every possible precauthon.
The Celanese site was set up in 1916 and closed three years ago. It's the
size of 110 football pitches and ripe for re`development, but first
needs to be cleared. That's taking place in two parts ` the first phase
lasting around a year. It is very early to say what but development
might be, it could be commercial or business, but the option for housing
is also there. It will be c`refully looked at, and the best outcome
achieved. On to sport, and Leicester City s
promotion push rolls on ` another resounding win leaves them firm
favourites to be back in thd Premier League come the end of season.
Here's Angela with the Championship action.
Can anyone stop Leicester Chty? Not on current form. The Foxes `re
oozing confidence that comes from an unbeaten record in their last 1
League Games. Resistance from strugglers Charlton didn't last long
` Jamie Vardy on target, Danny Drinkwater doubling their ldad, and
David Nugent wrapping up another Foxes win.
Every time that we play people are looking at how the Games will go `
ultimately we have to keep our focus on ourselves and I think thd players
have done it very, very well of late.
Derby's ambitions took a little bit of a dent with defeat against
promotion rivals Burnley ` no doubt the major talking point alrdady
behind, Chris Martin's dismhssal for a suspected dive left them down to
ten men. Burnley took full advantage, 2`0 the final score.
Fall over, it's a penalty. But whether the referee doesn't see
that... It's a slip, it's not a dive.
And a day to forget for Fordst, thrashed 4`1 at home by Wig`n `
Martyn Waghorn on loan from Leicester put the visitors `head,
Jamie Paterson levelled the scores. It didn't last long though ` this
the Reds' heaviest home defdat of the season.
We'll have more goals for your tomorrow in East Midlands Today tat
1830, and more league action for you, as Late Kick Off returns to our
screens at 23:20 here on BBC One tomorrow night.
To rugby, and a bonus point win for the Leicester Tigers at Newcastle.
They beat the Falcons 41`18, with a try in each half from Gonev`.
Let's see how long this rain is going to be with us now, Mel has
your forecast. going
The rain has pushed in, accompanied why quite strong winds again that as
that starts to clear eastwards winds die down. There will be the risk of
seeing a patchy frost first thing on Monday morning, and also thd risk of
ice. Particularly through p`rts of Derbyshire. Monday gets off to quite
a chilly start, then we will see quite a few showers. The showers
start to push their way in, and some will be a bit wintry. There should
be some brighter spells on the cards by the afternoon, lighter whnds but
not particularly warm. It looks as though it will turn milder next
week. We will have more at 10:15pl.
Goodbye. will be back.
Good evening. The chances are, you are enjoying your evening on a nice
warm sofa while it rains outside. Pretty heavy rain in parts of the
country and for tomorrow morning, wrap up warmly, it will be a cheap
upstart right across the country. This is where the rain is right now
from Portsmouth to London across to the north-east and the east of the
country and it will push out into the North Sea. Not all of the rain
will clear away but it will be cold enough for some icy stretches across
parts of Northern Ireland, the Northwest of England, too, but
everywhere will have a chilly start. Not exclusively snow to higher
ground, maybe to some lower land, too, but in the south-east, rain
showers and pretty grey and unpleasant, but other parts will be
enjoying some sunshine, but Swales, parts of Yorkshire. North-east
Scotland looks like staying grey, wet and cold. Not so bad on Tuesday
for the bulk of country but if it does rain, it will be in Cornwall
and maybe Devon,
