With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.
First, this lunchtime: An investigation is getting under way
into the cause of a huge fire in the centre of Derby. It destroyed the
roof of the Assembly Room's car park and, with it, the air conditioning,
heating and plant machinery for the venue next door. The full scale of
the structural damage is yet to be confirmed, but people are now being
allowed back`in to collect their cars from the car park.
Though is some bits of loose structure on the building, we are
help making that safe. People can come and collect their cars. If they
present themselves to the reception at the Council house, we will escort
them over. The fire seems to have come from the plant room, the power
station is above the car park. That will have an impact on our ability
to run shows in the adjoining theatre, and leisure centre.
A 20`year`old man has been charged, following an incident in the
Hucknall area of Nottingham. Reece Theison, of no fixed address, was
charged with theft, criminal damage, and possession of a firearm with
intent to cause fear or violence. It follows a ten`hour stand`off with
police in Hucknall, which ended in the early hours of Friday morning,
near a snooker club in the town. He's appearing before magistrates in
the city today. Plans for a new cycle track on part
of a wildlife sanctuary in Derby have been scrapped. The plans had
been approved, despite strong opposition. But a legal challenge by
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust saw work on`site delayed. It can't now be
completed before the bird nesting season, so risks costing more than
the original budget. As a result, the council says it's no longer a
viable option. Some big matches on today in the
football for our local sides. Leicester host Blackpool, with the
Foxes looking to further cement their automatic promotion place.
Forest are hoping to end a winless run, and try to keep in their
play`off place, as they host Doncaster.
And Derby County haven't scored in their last three games, and are
looking to reverse that, as they head to Reading.
In League One, Notts County face Tranmere, hoping to lift themselves
from the bottom of the table. And, in League Two, Mansfield Town
face Northampton. The skies are now clearing nicely,
it will stay fine and dry. After an early`morning shower, a line of
showers developed, but they have not developed. A brisk westerly wind,
maximum temperature of 15 Celsius this afternoon. Overnight, the
breeze continues, clearer skies in the early part of the evening,
before cloud increases. Minimum temperature, eight Celsius, a mild
night. Tomorrow, the better part of the day will be the only morning. We
hold onto brighter weather, but there is some cloud. The high
pressure is starting to sink further south but at the moment, quite
breezy, but try next week. `` dry. Join us again at 7.10pm.
