drama the festival was invented for. That's all from us.

:00:00.:00:14.

With your news now for the Dast Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:15.:00:18.

First tonight, there has bedn huge disruption in Derby after a major

:00:19.:00:22.

fire in the city centre. Thd flames, smoke and efforts to tackle it saw

:00:23.:00:25.

roads closed and buildings evacuated. Pillars of smoke up to

:00:26.:00:37.

100 feet engulfed parts of city before it was brought under control.

:00:38.:00:40.

James Roberson is there for us now. It has not been an easy task to

:00:41.:00:44.

tackle, given its location? No, indeed. Even now, five hours on from

:00:45.:00:51.

the start of the fire, ten levels up in the Assembly Rooms car p`rk

:00:52.:00:56.

behind me, there is still a serious amount of disruption to the city

:00:57.:01:00.

centre as the clear up goes on. It took 75 firefighters to put the

:01:01.:01:05.

blaze under control. Luckilx, no one was hurt, but at its height, the

:01:06.:01:09.

smoke could be seen for milds around.

:01:10.:01:10.

Firefighters, silhouetted against the flames at their height `t around

:01:11.:01:14.

6.30 tonight. Eyewitnesses were shocked by the scale of the fire,

:01:15.:01:17.

which quickly spread across the whole top floor of the building The

:01:18.:01:22.

wind was making the smoke bhllow up. Big clouds of black smoke wdre

:01:23.:01:27.

ballooning above the Assembly Rooms. Later, you could see the fl`mes I

:01:28.:01:31.

could see the flames in the cathedral windows. We'd seen smoke

:01:32.:01:36.

earlier coming from the top floor. There were things starting to

:01:37.:01:39.

explode. There was fire comhng out of the vents. Quite dramatic flames

:01:40.:01:43.

leaping up into the air, and huge clouds of black smoke. Nearby

:01:44.:01:50.

buildings had to be evacuatdd. Some people had driven miles to see

:01:51.:01:54.

dancer Anton du Beke at the Assembly Rooms, only for the whole event to

:01:55.:01:58.

be cancelled. Yeah, we drovd from West Sussex for five hours. We were

:01:59.:02:03.

waiting for my husband to arrive because he had to finish work, so

:02:04.:02:07.

when he came and said "You're not going to see the show because it's

:02:08.:02:11.

on fire", I was worried. We were looking forward to seeing the show.

:02:12.:02:14.

A bit of a disappointment, but it can't be helped, as long as everyone

:02:15.:02:18.

is OK. Tonight, cars are sthll stuck inside the car park is damphng down

:02:19.:02:25.

continues. With me now is Gavin Tomlinson, an

:02:26.:02:29.

area manager with other surd`fire service. Gavin, what caused it? At

:02:30.:02:35.

this stage, we don't know. We just know that the fire started hn the

:02:36.:02:40.

plant room. We will start an investigation with the police in the

:02:41.:02:43.

morning. It burned right through the top floor of that building. What is

:02:44.:02:49.

up there? It serves the Assdmbly Rooms and the car park, providing

:02:50.:02:52.

the hot water, heating and `ir conditioning. It destroyed the

:02:53.:02:57.

entire top floor. You were lucky it did not go down to the lower

:02:58.:03:01.

floors, with a lot of cars `nd fuel. Potentially very dangerous? Yes we

:03:02.:03:08.

had firefighters working thdre, but we withdrew because it becale

:03:09.:03:11.

unsafe. We concentrated on containing the fire and bring it

:03:12.:03:16.

spreading into the Assembly Rooms. Of course, cars are still in there.

:03:17.:03:20.

They probably will not be able to get out until tomorrow. There will

:03:21.:03:24.

also be an assessment tomorrow of what happens over the next weeks and

:03:25.:03:27.

months at the 10th won, where services have been severely

:03:28.:03:29.

disrupted. `` at the temp won. A hospital has apologised after

:03:30.:03:39.

giving a massive overdose of morphine to a three week old baby.

:03:40.:03:43.

Ellie Prudence received 100 times the recommended amount, and somehow

:03:44.:03:46.

survived. The NHS calls it ` "never event", something which, as its name

:03:47.:03:49.

suggests, should never happdn. Our health correspondent has more.

:03:50.:03:53.

It didn't start off as an elergency. She had a runny nose and shd wasn't

:03:54.:03:57.

feeding very well, and in hdr chest, she was wheezing, so I thought I

:03:58.:04:01.

would take her to hospital. That was Kings' Mill in Sutton in Ashfield in

:04:02.:04:05.

Nottinghamshire. It was manhc. People didn't seem to know what they

:04:06.:04:08.

were doing. Struggling with breathing, baby Ellie should have

:04:09.:04:10.

been given 0.27 milligrams of morphine. Instead, she recehved 27

:04:11.:04:14.

milligrams, 100 times the recommended amount. I knew ht was

:04:15.:04:22.

too much morphine. I challenged the doctor and that. But I'm not a

:04:23.:04:28.

doctor, so I really did trust these people. It was human error. Two

:04:29.:04:32.

doctors, two nurses involved. Without proper checks, the dose was

:04:33.:04:37.

given. I said "I don't care what happened, just get in there and help

:04:38.:04:41.

her". It took an hour to iddntify the mistake. Absolutely fumhng. I

:04:42.:04:45.

couldn't understand how that could happen. We were after all in a

:04:46.:04:49.

hospital. We entrusted our daughter to their care. Ellie was tr`nsferred

:04:50.:04:54.

to Sheffield Children's Hospital and intensive care. The family from

:04:55.:04:57.

Newark said care there was fantastic. Nobody expected her to

:04:58.:05:03.

survive. I thought I was gohng to lose her, but part of me kndw she

:05:04.:05:07.

was strong. These procedures that should have been followed, hf they

:05:08.:05:10.

had been followed, my daughter would not have been overdosed. Thd

:05:11.:05:14.

family's solicitor is in Nottingham. She says King's Mill have bden open

:05:15.:05:18.

and honest about the mistakd. Michelle and Carl have been through

:05:19.:05:21.

a harrowing experience, which isn't over for them yet. Ellie is not out

:05:22.:05:27.

of the woods. We don't know the implications for her health in the

:05:28.:05:31.

long term. I didn't stop crxing for a week after it happened, bdcause we

:05:32.:05:38.

nearly lost her. Just absoltte miracle that she's still here.

:05:39.:05:42.

King's Mill Hospital has apologised. It says procedures have been

:05:43.:05:45.

changed, and the lessons will be shared with other hospitals.

:05:46.:05:54.

Derbyshire's chief fire offhcer has been charged with rape.

:05:55.:05:56.

Police say the charge against Sean Frayne relates to an alleged

:05:57.:06:00.

incident in Etwall seven ye`rs ago. The 47`year`old, who is frol the

:06:01.:06:03.

village, was arrested last lonth and charged yesterday. He is dud to

:06:04.:06:06.

appear before magistrates l`ter this month. Derbyshire Fire servhce says

:06:07.:06:09.

he has been suspended until further notice.

:06:10.:06:10.

Uniformed officers have been patrolling an area of Nottingham to

:06:11.:06:13.

reassure people after a ten hour police stand`off. Armed offhcers

:06:14.:06:18.

were called to the snooker club in Hucknall yesterday. Police fired a

:06:19.:06:22.

baton round at a man towards the end of the incident. A 20`year`old man

:06:23.:06:25.

is tonight being questioned on suspicion of possessing a fhrearm

:06:26.:06:28.

with intent to cause fear of violence.

:06:29.:06:31.

Now the weather. We have had plenty of sunshhne so

:06:32.:06:43.

far this week, and we can expect more of the same this weekend. It is

:06:44.:06:47.

generally drier, and it will be feeling warm in the sunshind . You

:06:48.:06:52.

are starting to see cloud increasing this afternoon, and it will continue

:06:53.:06:55.

to push into the night, producing a few spots of rain and light drizzle

:06:56.:06:59.

to Derbyshire and Nottinghalshire, but most of us have a dry nhght full

:07:00.:07:05.

of with the breeze, we should stay fog free tonight, maybe a bht of

:07:06.:07:12.

missed in faces. The cloud should slowly start to break through the

:07:13.:07:15.

morning, and then we should see sunny spells in the afternoon. It is

:07:16.:07:19.

not wall`to`wall sunshine, but where we do get the sunshine, it hs

:07:20.:07:24.

feeling warm. On Sunday, a beautiful start, but more clout in thd

:07:25.:07:28.
