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

:00:20.:00:22.

:00:27.:00:31.

walk. It was an ordeal even to le`ve the

:00:37.:00:40.

House. Deepak Kunwar has lost his only child. Nadish was a Derby

:00:41.:00:46.

College student,. Three weeks after going missing, a body was found in

:00:47.:00:49.

the River Derwent. People from the Nepalese community came frol places

:00:50.:00:52.

across England, and joined today's walk to commemorate his lifd.

:00:53.:00:56.

The good thing about the Nepalese community, they are really close to

:00:57.:01:00.

each other, they want to give support because most of thel don't

:01:01.:01:02.

have their immediate family available here.

:01:03.:01:06.

They walked along the same route Nadish is thought to have t`ken

:01:07.:01:09.

including past BBC Radio Derby where he was pictured on CCTV images. They

:01:10.:01:14.

walked towards Pride Park, `long the River Derwent where the bodx was

:01:15.:01:18.

found. Here, flowers and incense were placed to remember Nadhsh. His

:01:19.:01:22.

grief`stricken father told ts he was pleased by so much support.

:01:23.:01:27.

It was nice to be together hn this sadly emotional period. Everyone is

:01:28.:01:33.

helpful for each other, the local community and all the Nepaldse

:01:34.:01:36.

community, I'd like to thank everyone.

:01:37.:01:39.

The police investigation into what happened is continuing, and the

:01:40.:01:42.

family are waiting for form`l identification of the body.

:01:43.:01:49.

Tributes were read on behalf of the Nepalese community. We pray to God

:01:50.:01:56.

that they will find some colfort in him to cope with the situathon. The

:01:57.:02:01.

police investigation into what happened is continuing, and the

:02:02.:02:04.

family are waiting for form`l identification of the body.

:02:05.:02:07.

Ukrainians living in the East Midlands have been rallying in

:02:08.:02:11.

Leicester this afternoon. They said prayers, held a minute's silence and

:02:12.:02:14.

sang to show their support for fellow Ukrainians killed in Kiev.

:02:15.:02:18.

They also urged President Pttin of Russia to back down and to pull his

:02:19.:02:27.

troops out of Ukrainian territory. It would be very hard if war starts,

:02:28.:02:34.

but I pray that will not happen If the world stands up against

:02:35.:02:37.

President Putin, he will have two back down. I worry because H have

:02:38.:02:54.

relations in Ukraine, and I am very worried.

:02:55.:02:58.

People living near a former chemical site in Derby are being reassured

:02:59.:03:01.

work to clear it is being undertaken with every possible precauthon.

:03:02.:03:04.

The Celanese site was set up in 1916 and closed three years ago. It's the

:03:05.:03:08.

size of 110 football pitches and ripe for re`development, but first

:03:09.:03:11.

needs to be cleared. That's taking place in two parts ` the first phase

:03:12.:03:19.

lasting around a year. It is very early to say what but development

:03:20.:03:23.

might be, it could be commercial or business, but the option for housing

:03:24.:03:29.

is also there. It will be c`refully looked at, and the best outcome

:03:30.:03:32.

achieved. On to sport, and Leicester City s

:03:33.:03:35.

promotion push rolls on ` another resounding win leaves them firm

:03:36.:03:39.

favourites to be back in thd Premier League come the end of season.

:03:40.:03:42.

Here's Angela with the Championship action.

:03:43.:03:44.

Can anyone stop Leicester Chty? Not on current form. The Foxes `re

:03:45.:03:48.

oozing confidence that comes from an unbeaten record in their last 1

:03:49.:03:52.

League Games. Resistance from strugglers Charlton didn't last long

:03:53.:03:55.

` Jamie Vardy on target, Danny Drinkwater doubling their ldad, and

:03:56.:03:58.

David Nugent wrapping up another Foxes win.

:03:59.:04:04.

Every time that we play people are looking at how the Games will go `

:04:05.:04:08.

ultimately we have to keep our focus on ourselves and I think thd players

:04:09.:04:11.

have done it very, very well of late.

:04:12.:04:13.

Derby's ambitions took a little bit of a dent with defeat against

:04:14.:04:17.

promotion rivals Burnley ` no doubt the major talking point alrdady

:04:18.:04:19.

behind, Chris Martin's dismhssal for a suspected dive left them down to

:04:20.:04:22.

ten men. Burnley took full advantage, 2`0 the final score.

:04:23.:04:28.

Fall over, it's a penalty. But whether the referee doesn't see

:04:29.:04:31.

that... It's a slip, it's not a dive.

:04:32.:04:35.

And a day to forget for Fordst, thrashed 4`1 at home by Wig`n `

:04:36.:04:38.

Martyn Waghorn on loan from Leicester put the visitors `head,

:04:39.:04:40.

Jamie Paterson levelled the scores. It didn't last long though ` this

:04:41.:04:44.

the Reds' heaviest home defdat of the season.

:04:45.:04:50.

To rugby, and a bonus point win for the Leicester Tigers at Newcastle.

:05:02.:05:05.

They beat the Falcons 41`18, with a try in each half from Gonev`.

your forecast. going

:05:13.:05:16.

The rain has pushed in, accompanied why quite strong winds again that as

:05:17.:05:21.

that starts to clear eastwards winds die down. There will be the risk of

:05:22.:05:26.

seeing a patchy frost first thing on Monday morning, and also thd risk of

:05:27.:05:33.

ice. Particularly through p`rts of Derbyshire. Monday gets off to quite

:05:34.:05:36.

a chilly start, then we will see quite a few showers. The showers

:05:37.:05:42.

start to push their way in, and some will be a bit wintry. There should

:05:43.:05:47.

be some brighter spells on the cards by the afternoon, lighter whnds but

:05:48.:05:52.

not particularly warm. It looks as though it will turn milder next

Goodbye. will be back.

:05:58.:06:10.

Good evening. The chances are, you are enjoying your evening on a nice

:06:11.:06:15.

warm sofa while it rains outside. Pretty heavy rain in parts of the

:06:16.:06:18.

country and for tomorrow morning, wrap up warmly, it will be a cheap

:06:19.:06:22.

upstart right across the country. This is where the rain is right now

:06:23.:06:26.

from Portsmouth to London across to the north-east and the east of the

:06:27.:06:29.

country and it will push out into the North Sea. Not all of the rain

:06:30.:06:33.

will clear away but it will be cold enough for some icy stretches across

:06:34.:06:41.

parts of Northern Ireland, the Northwest of England, too, but

:06:42.:06:44.

everywhere will have a chilly start. Not exclusively snow to higher

:06:45.:06:48.

ground, maybe to some lower land, too, but in the south-east, rain

:06:49.:06:53.

showers and pretty grey and unpleasant, but other parts will be

:06:54.:06:56.

enjoying some sunshine, but Swales, parts of Yorkshire. North-east

:06:57.:07:02.

Scotland looks like staying grey, wet and cold. Not so bad on Tuesday

:07:03.:07:06.

for the bulk of country but if it does rain, it will be in Cornwall

:07:07.:07:09.

and maybe Devon,
