That is all from us. Don't forget there's a first look

:00:00.:00:16.

Good evening. An inquest's been told that a

:00:17.:00:22.

control room mix`up meant an ambulance took five hours to reach a

:00:23.:00:25.

man in need. Further delays in hospital meant it was sever`l hours

:00:26.:00:28.

before Stewart Maltby received treatment for his dehydration. So

:00:29.:00:31.

why did it take so long for the ambulance to arrive? When the GP

:00:32.:00:47.

went round to his house in Nottinghamshire, he said he was very

:00:48.:00:51.

vulnerable and he needed an ambulance within two hours, maximum.

:00:52.:00:59.

There was a mix`up at the Albulance Service, somebody did not thck a box

:01:00.:01:08.

at the centre and it bought it was four hours. In the end it took five

:01:09.:01:14.

hours to reach the house, shx hours into the Queen's Medical Centre and

:01:15.:01:16.

14 hours before the dehydrated patient got fluids. Have thdy made

:01:17.:01:21.

any improvements in the Ambtlance Service? We heard at the inpuest,

:01:22.:01:27.

that there had been improvelents. Arriving today was the family

:01:28.:01:33.

solicitor who cross`examined a lot of the witnesses. He was told there

:01:34.:01:36.

had been improvements and the Ambulance Service had a dedhcated

:01:37.:01:41.

team were dealing with thesd calls, GP urgent referrals to hosphtal and

:01:42.:01:46.

the computer system had been changed to stop this happening again. What

:01:47.:01:49.

about the problems when he finally got to the hospital? The chronology

:01:50.:01:55.

is difficult to follow becatse of gaps in the medical records. Not

:01:56.:02:00.

everything was written down. But a picture emerged today of st`ff being

:02:01.:02:05.

rushed off their feet. We hdard from a nurse who said with hindshght they

:02:06.:02:09.

should have done more checks with fluids but thought the ward was

:02:10.:02:16.

understaffed and this is back in November 2012 and we know the

:02:17.:02:19.

patient died two days after being admitted into hospital. Thank you.

:02:20.:02:26.

Bin the blade and keep out of prison is the message being sent to

:02:27.:02:29.

teenagers at schools across Leicester. The warning is p`rt of a

:02:30.:02:32.

hard`hitting police road show visiting secondary schools hn the

:02:33.:02:35.

city which aims to show the dangers of being involved in knife crime.

:02:36.:02:38.

Victoria Hicks reports. Knife crime isn't a game. The

:02:39.:02:55.

message being taught to teenagers across the city. Leicestershire

:02:56.:03:01.

Police recorded 441 night rdlated offences in the past year. Ht is a

:03:02.:03:04.

crime some students at this community college have experienced

:03:05.:03:09.

first hand. I looked out of my window and saw one guy take out a

:03:10.:03:15.

long knife and stab somebodx. The guy was on the floor bleeding and

:03:16.:03:19.

coughing up road. I know soleone who has carried a knife in school for a

:03:20.:03:22.

friend. They were found with the knife so they were excluded. This

:03:23.:03:29.

young offender was 16 when he was involved in knife crime. We cannot

:03:30.:03:34.

identify him because of his age and his supervision order. He asked in

:03:35.:03:39.

for his phone and then pulldd out a blade. I did not know anythhng was

:03:40.:03:45.

going to happen. So I am associated in knife crime. Before I kndw it, he

:03:46.:03:50.

took the phone off him and was walking away. That was it, H wasn't

:03:51.:03:55.

the begin of person to walk away and say stop. We all know that hs an

:03:56.:04:03.

offensive weapon? This colldge excluded two of its pupils last year

:04:04.:04:10.

for carrying a knife. An attempt is being made to rescue

:04:11.:04:14.

an ambitious project to cut domestic energy bills on one of the country's

:04:15.:04:19.

biggest housing estates. A Nottingham MP is demanding the

:04:20.:04:22.

government reconsiders its decision to scrap a multi`million potnd

:04:23.:04:30.

scheme to make homes much w`rmer. And tonight there is a hint of a

:04:31.:04:34.

change of heart. Here's our Political Editor, John Hess.

:04:35.:04:42.

They have got a lot in common, related and living in simil`r homes

:04:43.:04:45.

on the same state, but when it comes to the cost of heating their homes,

:04:46.:04:52.

there is a big difference. Katrina's domestic fuel bills are

:04:53.:05:00.

rising. She pays ?135 a month. It is really cold inside and the heating

:05:01.:05:06.

bills are increasing. Her sister`in`law's bills this xear of

:05:07.:05:11.

?400 cheaper because they h`ve a government backed scheme. It stays

:05:12.:05:17.

warmer longer and the boiler doesn't run for as long. The Labour MP wants

:05:18.:05:25.

the government to reinstate the project and is raising the hssue in

:05:26.:05:29.

Parliament. It is good for `ll others, not just those living in

:05:30.:05:33.

those homes, but if we can bring down energy for everybody. Hn a

:05:34.:05:40.

Parliamentary debate, Lilli`n Greenwood won this concession from

:05:41.:05:43.

the government. We are workhng closely with Nottingham on ` new bid

:05:44.:05:49.

for our green deal communithes. They have put in a robust propos`l. Far

:05:50.:05:54.

from being dead and over, the scheme has every reason to be optilistic.

:05:55.:05:59.

The government says home insulation costs are coming down rapidly

:06:00.:06:03.

without the need for a levy on domestic fuel bills to warm up those

:06:04.:06:09.

cold homes. We have plenty of football news

:06:10.:06:14.

There's been a full set of latches played this evening.

:06:15.:06:31.

That's your news. So, it's goodbye from me but now the weather.

:06:32.:06:41.

We have had some beautiful sunshine this sat noon. Some others had to

:06:42.:06:49.

wait a little while before we saw the sunshine, but it was worth the

:06:50.:06:55.

wait. Tomorrow we'll start off a misty and murky with fog to content

:06:56.:06:58.

with. But eventually the sunshine will be coming back through for the

:06:59.:07:02.

afternoon. Clear skies at the moment, and cloud will be rolling

:07:03.:07:06.

back in in the early hours `nd we will see this mist and fog forming

:07:07.:07:09.

by the end of the night. Quhte chilly for some, under clearer skies

:07:10.:07:14.

it will be close to freezing. Tomorrow morning, a murky start low

:07:15.:07:21.

cloud around with mist and fog. Eventually the mist will cldar but

:07:22.:07:24.

the cloud will take longer through the day, so it might linger across

:07:25.:07:29.

northern and western parts. The best of the sunshine is in the south and

:07:30.:07:30.

east. But it Thursday. It will brighten up as the

:07:31.:07:34.

day goes on. Here is the UK forecast.

:07:35.:07:40.

Plenty of dry weather over the next few days, especially across southern

:07:41.:07:44.

areas. That is courtesy of high-pressure, keeping the weather

:07:45.:07:51.

fronts at bay to the north-west It was cold and grey across southern

:07:52.:07:59.

areas today. Further north, lots of bustling sunshine after a cold
