shortly. They have an investigation into why some police forces in the

:00:00.3:59:59

UK are And now the news for the East

:00:00.:00:16.

Midlands, I'm Anne Davies. A woman's been cleared of causing

:00:17.:00:19.

the death of two young children by careless driving. But Sharmila

:00:20.:00:23.

Mistry was found guilty of the lesser charge, careless driving. Her

:00:24.:00:26.

car smashed into the children's pushchairs at a busy junction in

:00:27.:00:30.

Leicester. Here's our chief news reporter, Quentin Rayner.

:00:31.:00:37.

The mother of one`year`old Oliwier Baczyk and the parents of

:00:38.:00:43.

two`year`old Zofia Tabaka sobbed in court after the verdicts were

:00:44.:00:47.

returned. The Polish children both died from head injuries after they

:00:48.:00:51.

were struck by a car while in the pushchairs in August, 2012. Sharmila

:00:52.:00:57.

Mistry was found not guilty of causing death by careless driving.

:00:58.:01:01.

She was on her way to the dismiss meeting and was driving along

:01:02.:01:05.

Narborough Road. She was talking on a hands`free phone and travelling

:01:06.:01:09.

six miles over the 30 mph limit. She went through an amber light as she

:01:10.:01:13.

drove through a junction. Her car was then hit by a red mini Cooper

:01:14.:01:19.

which had gone through a red light. The driver of that car has since

:01:20.:01:23.

died of unrelated circumstances. The collision pushed the BMW towards the

:01:24.:01:27.

children on a pedestrian island. One of the mothers of the children

:01:28.:01:31.

collapsed after the verdict and had to be treated by paramedics.

:01:32.:01:35.

Speaking through her solicitor, Sharmila Mistry gave her reaction.

:01:36.:01:42.

She has to say is that her thoughts are with the family and she is

:01:43.:01:47.

relieved that the jury agree that she was not responsible for the

:01:48.:01:50.

death of the children, but her faults remain, as they always have

:01:51.:01:56.

done, with the family. Fining her ?3000 and is qualifying her from

:01:57.:01:59.

driving for 18 months, the judge told her she had not been aware of

:02:00.:02:03.

her speed, had not noticed the roadworks, and was making a social

:02:04.:02:07.

call on hands`free device. All of which, he said, and mounted the

:02:08.:02:10.

careless driving. The court heard the 42`year`old from Bushby drove up

:02:11.:02:16.

to 200 miles a day and the disqualification will make it

:02:17.:02:19.

difficult for her to maintain her job.

:02:20.:02:24.

A woman who killed her three children has been found dead at

:02:25.:02:27.

Rampton Hospital in Nottinghamshire. An investigation is now underway at

:02:28.:02:31.

the top security hospital. It's understood the body of Theresa Riggi

:02:32.:02:34.

was discovered last night in her room. She killed her three children

:02:35.:02:39.

in Scotland in 2010. East Midlands Airport says it wants

:02:40.:02:43.

to double jobs, passengers and cargo as part of a growth plan for 2030.

:02:44.:02:48.

The airport is now consulting with the local community about its

:02:49.:02:50.

expansion plans. Mike O'Sullivan reports.

:02:51.:02:56.

They are bringing in a new look to the terminal. But they have got even

:02:57.:03:04.

more ambitious plans. The double the number of jobs, passengers and cargo

:03:05.:03:10.

volume here. It is already a big employment site. We expect the

:03:11.:03:12.

airport to grow substantially, possibly doubling, then a similar

:03:13.:03:18.

numbers of jobs created. The airport once to double the number of jobs

:03:19.:03:23.

here to 14,000 by 2030. Bush passenger numbers up from 4.2

:03:24.:03:30.

million to 10 million. And sea cargo volume climbed from 300,000 tonnes a

:03:31.:03:37.

year, to 750,000 tonnes. The airport has bought around 50 hectares of

:03:38.:03:41.

land. The airport says there are no plans to develop the site.

:03:42.:03:45.

Campaigners want to see limits on growth. We have no particular

:03:46.:03:50.

objection, provided you keep the development and the pollution within

:03:51.:03:53.

the existing boundary of the airport. If they try to export it

:03:54.:03:56.

onto land that they have bought recently, it threatens our

:03:57.:04:01.

tranquillity, we will object in the stronger is possible fashion. The

:04:02.:04:05.

airport has been buffeted by the recession and the demise of BMI

:04:06.:04:08.

baby. With passenger numbers down where around 1.2 million on 2009.

:04:09.:04:16.

But profits are back up again from ?40 million in 2009, to nearly ?19

:04:17.:04:23.

million last year. `` ?14 million. It is now looking ahead.

:04:24.:04:28.

A man who underwent a double lung transplant to treat his cystic

:04:29.:04:31.

fibrosis is backing a campaign to help more patients. The Cystic

:04:32.:04:35.

Fibrosis Trust says the way the transplant system operates for those

:04:36.:04:40.

needing new lungs is a scandal. Our health correspondent Rob Sissons

:04:41.:04:47.

reports. Andy was born with cystic fibrosis.

:04:48.:04:52.

It is genetic. Lungs become clogged with mucus. He knows he is lucky to

:04:53.:04:56.

have got a lung transplant. It has changed his life. People have died

:04:57.:05:00.

on the waiting list, when there are measures and develop it that can be

:05:01.:05:08.

put in place, to cut this down. One in five lungs donated are currently

:05:09.:05:11.

used for transplant. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust once the regional

:05:12.:05:16.

system where donated lungs are given to the nearest transplant centre

:05:17.:05:21.

replaced with a national one. We are calling for a national system to

:05:22.:05:25.

make sure the lungs that are donated are got to the people who need them

:05:26.:05:31.

as quickly as possible. A specialist in Nottingham says there is now a

:05:32.:05:34.

lot of determination to improve things. Not all of the lungs are in

:05:35.:05:39.

good enough condition to be used and there is a lot of work looking at

:05:40.:05:42.

reconditioning of lungs, for example, lungs that do not fit

:05:43.:05:50.

patients, many of them are too small. The wait for a transplant can

:05:51.:05:55.

be frustrating. Soon, patients will be using new state facilities. The

:05:56.:06:00.

said there is no nearly finished. `` the centre. Nationally, one in eight

:06:01.:06:07.

patients die while on the waiting list. We want people to talk to each

:06:08.:06:10.

other and find out what their wishes are. The NHS is already reviewed the

:06:11.:06:15.

organs are allocated and is working with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

:06:16.:06:19.

Now news of our football show Late Kick Off. Tonight, an exclusive with

:06:20.:06:22.

the Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies on his five`match touchline

:06:23.:06:27.

ban and his media image. There'll be goals and analysis too at 11:20pm

:06:28.:06:33.

tonight here on BBC One. That's your news. So, it's goodbye

:06:34.:06:36.

from me, but with your weather now, here's

:06:37.:06:40.

we have had some lovely sunshine over the past couple of days. This

:06:41.:06:47.

area of high pressure is going nowhere fast. Staying dry all week.

:06:48.:06:52.

The only hiccup will be the amount of cloud. But there will be some

:06:53.:06:56.

decent spells of sunshine. The cloud is starting to begin at the moment.

:06:57.:07:01.

There will be some holes in it across Northern and Western Isles.

:07:02.:07:08.

Derbyshire will get fairly chilly. Most of us staying around four or

:07:09.:07:12.

five Celsius. Tomorrow morning, starting off with a lot of cloud. It

:07:13.:07:17.

will be a dry start. The cloud will break up into the afternoon. Some of

:07:18.:07:22.

us will see some sunshine. Some areas may cling on to the cloud into

:07:23.:07:26.

the afternoon. Temperatures of 11 Celsius in the sunshine. Here is the

:07:27.:07:28.

outlook. 11 or 12 degrees. This is the

:07:29.:07:34.

outlook. If you are heading somewhere else in the UK, you need

:07:35.:07:39.

the forecast. Hello. The local weather detail you have just heard

:07:40.:07:43.

fit into an overall pattern which is now equivocal in different from the

:07:44.:07:46.

one that gave us our wettest winter on record.

:07:47.:07:49.

We have spent the day watching high pressure pushing across the UK. It

:07:50.:07:53.

is settling our weather down like any area of high pressure. It is

:07:54.:07:59.

here for a while. It is here for this week. The Jetstream has moved

:08:00.:08:02.

north and the wet and whether -- whinny systems have moved towards

:08:03.:08:06.

Iceland. Our weather is now much quieter. Sundays are sunnier than

:08:07.:08:11.

others. In the sunshine from it feels warm. At night it will be

:08:12.:08:15.

chilly. This
