evening. First tonight, a woman accused of causing the deaths of two

:00:20.:00:22.

toddlers by careless driving has spoken of the moments immedhately

:00:23.:00:26.

after the fatal collision. Sharmila Mistry told Leicester Crown Court

:00:27.:00:29.

her car filled with smoke and she thought it was going to explode Her

:00:30.:00:34.

BMW had been hit by another vehicle which forced it towards the

:00:35.:00:36.

pushchairs the children werd sitting in. Eleanor Garnier reports. This is

:00:37.:00:47.

the scene tonight during rush`hour. The crash was just before 10am on a

:00:48.:00:52.

Monday morning in the summer of 2012, it left the scene of

:00:53.:00:57.

devastation. She had been driving down this road, talking on `

:00:58.:01:04.

hands`free device, something she had done for the past 12 years because

:01:05.:01:10.

her job involved hundreds of miles of driving. She accepts she was

:01:11.:01:17.

doing 36 miles an hour in a 30 zone. When she got to this junction she

:01:18.:01:21.

drove through an amber light and was hit by another vehicle on the right,

:01:22.:01:27.

that driver had gone through a red light. When empowered, the whole car

:01:28.:01:33.

jolted. She said she jolted comic she was not going straight `ny

:01:34.:01:37.

more, it she froze, her hands were on the steaming peel but shd could

:01:38.:01:42.

not control anything. She ddscribed how smoke from the bags was filling

her BMW. She thought the car was going to explode. Her car mounted

this pedestrian island knocking the pushchairs of two children, both

:01:54.:01:59.

died of head injuries. The prosecution alleges the driver was

:02:00.:02:05.

distracted by her phone call and because she was over the spded

:02:06.:02:10.

limit, it minimised her chances of avoiding a collision. She ddnies two

:02:11.:02:15.

counts of death by dangerous driving. The trial continues. Next,

the research which may help stroke victims lead a better life. Experts

:02:20.:02:22.

at the University of Nottingham say disabilities caused by the lost

:02:23.:02:25.

common type of stroke could be cut by a third if the body's telperature

:02:26.:02:36.

is reduced after a seizure. So we have had a cardiac arrest and they

:02:37.:02:41.

are worried her rain has suffered it appealable damage so they are

:02:42.:02:45.

killing it. The sooner the rain is cooled, the slow or rain cells will

:02:46.:02:49.

die and the less rain damagd she will suffer. It is all a race

:02:50.:02:57.

against time and it will be when the same principle is tried out on

:02:58.:03:03.

stroke patients in the UK as well. If we start with rolling thhs

patient towards me. Nurses `nd doctors from five UK hospit`ls are

:03:12.:03:15.

being taught how to cool stroke patients. You can take them

:03:16.:03:23.

completely off. Water fills these cooling pads to bring the body

:03:24.:03:30.

temperature down from 37 to 34 with drugs used to stop shivering. When

:03:31.:03:38.

you have a stroke caused by blood clot rain cells start to did because

:03:39.:03:43.

they are not getting enough oxygen. If you cool the body down the body

:03:44.:03:49.

needs less energy and so less bright cells will die. It has been a long

:03:50.:03:55.

journey for these patients, most have had a stroke and adapthng can

:03:56.:04:03.

take months or even years. Ht affected my left hand side. The more

:04:04.:04:10.

we can learn the better it will be for anybody else. 20 yards `s the

:04:11.:04:24.

maximum I can go. It looks like it can reduce the amount of disability

:04:25.:04:29.

after a stroke by one third which can be really dramatic. Acthng fast

:04:30.:04:35.

is important and the results of the clinical trial are not expected for

:04:36.:04:46.

three years. A school has apologised for making some of its pupils wear a

:04:47.:04:51.

sign when they wanted to go to the toilet. The policy was withdrawn

:04:52.:04:54.

after a parent complained that it was degrading. From Derby, Simon

:04:55.:04:57.

Hare reports. Today's edition of the Sun newspaper cold it a scandal and

:04:58.:05:03.

carried a picture of a child where the sign. This school had m`de its

:05:04.:05:09.

eldest boys were the sign s`ying I am going to the toilet, when they

:05:10.:05:14.

needed to do just that. The school said it was to ensure only one child

:05:15.:05:20.

was in there at any one timd but it has now been withdrawn after a

:05:21.:05:25.

parent complained. The headteacher said the sign had been introduced

:05:26.:05:30.

because damage had recently been caused to doors and sinks in the

:05:31.:05:34.

school toilets. Toilets had also been blocked causing a flood.

:05:35.:05:39.

Causing complaints from a p`vement be immediately stop using them. The

:05:40.:05:45.

statement concludes we are sorry if this has caused any distress or

:05:46.:05:52.

upset. Some took it as OK btt we were horrified. It looked lhke he

:05:53.:05:57.

had been branded. They do that in America to criminals. I had no idea

:05:58.:06:03.

anything like this was happdning or going on. I was worried abott it

:06:04.:06:11.

because it is very degrading. I am very surprised schools would do

:06:12.:06:15.

this, usually schools issue toilet passes, they do not have signs that

:06:16.:06:20.

go around the neck to embarrass or humiliate. The head of the campaign

:06:21.:06:27.

that spoke to the Sun newsp`per declined to be interviewed by us and

:06:28.:06:32.

said they did not want to t`ke the issue further. That's your news So

:06:33.:06:36.

it's goodbye from me, but whth your weather now, here's Anna Chtrch It

:06:37.:06:42.

has been a cloudy day with some outbreaks of rain. That is what we

quickly to the south`east. We will see an improvement and most of us

pleasant in the sunshine. On Saturday after a cloudy and frosty

Hello, after the teenage tantrums of the last couple of months, the

:07:39.:07:44.

weather is going to move into more sedate middle age will stop maybe

:07:45.:07:49.

tonight is the midlife crisis because it is still likely -- middle

:07:50.:07:54.

age. Breezy and cloudy for most will stop but it will not be cold, but

:07:55.:07:59.

wet, particularly across Cumbria. The railway -- the rain is reluctant

to move from Northern Ireland, Scotland, increasingly wet across
