There's more throughout the evening on the

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

:00:15.:00:19.

A family whose home is to be flattened to make way for the high

:00:20.:00:23.

speed rail network is calling for a better compensation package. The

:00:24.:00:25.

government says it needs to finalise the route through our region before

:00:26.:00:28.

details of compensation can be considered. Mike O'Sullivan reports.

:00:29.:00:38.

The plan is to put HS2 right next to the motorway at Nottingham Road in

:00:39.:00:45.

not all. Andrew Ingram and his family live in one of four

:00:46.:00:47.

semidetached houses that will have to be not down. He says homeowners

:00:48.:00:53.

deserve a minimum pay`out. To cover the cost of redecorating

:00:54.:00:57.

property, getting kitchens and bathrooms after the standard you

:00:58.:01:01.

require or have already got. The family have lived here 20 years,

:01:02.:01:04.

extending and renovating the property. Under the current HS2

:01:05.:01:10.

incision arrangement, they get an extra 10% on top of the value of the

:01:11.:01:14.

house. For them that is properly around ?16,000.

:01:15.:01:19.

10% how moving elements they call it, but I have said that 10% or

:01:20.:01:26.

property like this is not enough to get a property to the standard you

:01:27.:01:31.

wanted to be. The government have said they cannot

:01:32.:01:35.

comment on compensation until final decision is made on the route that

:01:36.:01:38.

this year. A new fashion brand has started in

:01:39.:01:41.

Derbyshire, opening its first shop this weekend. The brand employs more

:01:42.:01:45.

than a dozen staff and looks on track to make a million this year `

:01:46.:01:48.

but that's not the exceptional thing. It's the fact it's been

:01:49.:01:50.

set`up by a teenager, as Carol Hinds at 16, Dylan decided to customising

:01:51.:02:02.

T`shirt in the garage of his family home. Nearly two years on and he is

:02:03.:02:09.

running his business. I started off just around my

:02:10.:02:13.

village, and people were showing interest, my friends and they were

:02:14.:02:18.

posting it on Facebook, and from there people said, I would want one

:02:19.:02:23.

of these. We rocked our logo together, we

:02:24.:02:28.

looked at what he can do, and then he just saw everything in this one

:02:29.:02:34.

T`shirt, he ran with it, and then once he had done this 1am a geek

:02:35.:02:38.

into me and said, I could do another one.

:02:39.:02:43.

The company now employs 15 people. Has thousands of online followers in

:02:44.:02:47.

the UK and America. I've produced something people are

:02:48.:02:52.

interested in. It's nice to invent something which people are so

:02:53.:02:58.

hard`core about. This year should see an turnover ?1

:02:59.:03:03.

million. My dream would be to move to London,

:03:04.:03:14.

get my own shop in London. A sci`fi convention in Nottingham

:03:15.:03:18.

has proven to be a victim of its own success. Thousands of people, many

:03:19.:03:21.

in fancy dress, turned up to the EM`CON at the Albert Hall. Many who

:03:22.:03:25.

had bought tickets in advance of the event say it's been massively

:03:26.:03:27.

over`subscribed, leaving hundreds queuing for hours unable to get in.

:03:28.:03:30.

Organisers have not returned our calls or emails.

:03:31.:03:34.

I've come here to meet some of the actors from red wharf and game of

:03:35.:03:41.

thrones, and we have find out that the people organising it has sold

:03:42.:03:47.

more tickets than the room for inside, so there are a lot

:03:48.:03:49.

disappointed people inside. A busy footbridge in Derby, built

:03:50.:03:53.

just seven years ago, has been closed suddenly because of safety

:03:54.:03:56.

fears. It follows reports of it "bouncing" more than usual, as

:03:57.:03:58.

people walked across it. The footbridge crosses the city's inner

:03:59.:04:01.

ring road. Engineers have now found some of its bolts have sheared.

:04:02.:04:05.

To the weekend's football now. Colin Hazelden has our round`up.

:04:06.:04:09.

Leicester City were most completely in control against Blackpool when

:04:10.:04:11.

they somehow manage to go behind not long before half`time. But they

:04:12.:04:18.

stayed together and kept attacking and levelled the game with this

:04:19.:04:24.

special goal. The ball was put up beautifully for Wes Morgan before

:04:25.:04:29.

Kevin Phillips made sure of three points. 17 points is the gap for

:04:30.:04:38.

third. Reading were unable to see off Derby. Forest have just two

:04:39.:04:48.

points from the last six games. In league one county went to dash one

:04:49.:04:58.

behind at the half`hour mark. Rovers magpie harps with a late winner.

:04:59.:05:07.

Mansfield conceded a penalty, so the home team took a point.

:05:08.:05:11.

Let's check the weather now, with Sara.

:05:12.:05:18.

We held onto those lovely blue skies for a large part of the day before

:05:19.:05:21.

the clouds started to increase, and it will continue to do so

:05:22.:05:25.

overnight. Small amounts of patchy light rain or drizzle at times, a

:05:26.:05:31.

mild night, a minimum temperature of seven Celsius, and a cloudy start to

:05:32.:05:37.

Monday. Still a little drizzly at times. There is a chance of a cloud

:05:38.:05:42.

sinning and breaking to allow sunshine. And improving picture

:05:43.:05:46.

although it looks quite cloudy at the moment. Daytime temperatures

:05:47.:05:50.

increasing, but it duster and windy through the middle part of the

:05:51.:05:51.

week. through

:05:52.:05:56.

We will have more when we're back at 10:15pm.

:05:57.:06:09.

Good evening. Apologies for sounding Southeast centric, but it is

:06:10.:06:16.

difficult when London had a high of 20 this afternoon, 68 Fahrenheit.

:06:17.:06:20.

Lovely sunshine across England, Wales and eastern Scotland. Some

:06:21.:06:30.

cloud on west facing coasts, and they struggle to get into double

:06:31.:06:32.

figures. More cloud

:06:33.:06:34.
