One, it's And now the news for the East

:00:00.:00:17.

Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale. Good evening.

:00:18.:00:19.

First tonight, a terrorism trial has been shown home`made videos which

:00:20.:00:22.

were discovered in the bedroom of a Leicestershire teenager. Thdy show

:00:23.:00:25.

Michael Piggin making threats to kill Muslims. The eighteen`xear`old

:00:26.:00:28.

from Loughborough has denied preparing weapons and plans for a

:00:29.:00:33.

Columbine High School`style attack. Our social affairs correspondent,

:00:34.:00:39.

Jeremy Ball, reports. The jury has been showing sdveral

:00:40.:00:42.

videos that were found when the police searched Michael Piggin's

:00:43.:00:45.

home here on Beaumont Road hn Loughborough. They were found along

:00:46.:00:48.

with weapons and notes about planning an attack. Now in some of

:00:49.:00:53.

the clips he talks about thd URA, and the jury has been told that that

:00:54.:00:57.

stands for the Urban Revolutionary Army. In this clip, Michael Piggin

:00:58.:01:00.

talks about what they want to achieve. Hello great people of the

:01:01.:01:06.

United Kingdom, we are the TRA. We support the EDL and the Knights

:01:07.:01:09.

Templar. We are against the Muslim invasion of our country. Today the

:01:10.:01:13.

Old Bailey has also seen several clips of Michael Piggin testing

:01:14.:01:16.

Molotov cocktails. You hear him talking about a weapons test,

:01:17.:01:19.

talking about making bombs. The jury has also been shown clips of him

:01:20.:01:22.

using this air pistol for t`rget practice and using a cross bow too.

:01:23.:01:28.

The prosecution say, taken together with other evidence, it all shows

:01:29.:01:31.

that Michael Piggin was serhous about preparing an act of tdrrorism.

:01:32.:01:36.

The jury is going to have to decide if he really was serious about

:01:37.:01:39.

carrying out an attack. Jerdmy Ball, BBC Midlands Today, Loughborough.

:01:40.:01:45.

An exact cause still hasn't been established for an explosion at

:01:46.:01:48.

flats on the edge of Derby city centre. It happened in the laundry

:01:49.:01:51.

room of Kenneth House on Ag`rd Street yesterday morning. No`one was

:01:52.:01:56.

injured. The Fire Service h`s ruled out a gas leak and is now blaming a

:01:57.:02:00.

build`up of pressure in a hot water storage tank.

:02:01.:02:03.

Hundreds of comments about ` NHS trust have been removed frol the NHS

:02:04.:02:07.

Choices website because it hs not clear who wrote them ` staff or

:02:08.:02:12.

patients. The concern follows a BBC Newsnight investigation. Tonight

:02:13.:02:16.

though, Nottinghamshire health care insisted the comments were genuine.

:02:17.:02:18.

Our health correspondent, Rob Sissons, explains.

:02:19.:02:27.

Opinions, they are everywhere. The NHS tells us to have our sax. You

:02:28.:02:31.

can post on review sites, ghve gold stars. But what is reliable on the

:02:32.:02:34.

Internet? Authors have got hnto trouble reviewing their own books.

:02:35.:02:37.

Are review sites for health open to the same abuse? Staff in thd NHS are

:02:38.:02:45.

reporting data, I mean that is wrong. The day`to`day reporting is

:02:46.:02:48.

skewing the results. That h`s to be wrong. The Nottinghamshire health

:02:49.:02:53.

care NHS Trust encourages comment on the website Patient Opinion.

:02:54.:02:56.

However, an investigation bx the BBC's Newsnight programme found that

:02:57.:02:59.

half the reviews, more than 100 were posted by NHS staff on behalf

:03:00.:03:04.

of patients. More troubling, the same comments were put on an NHS

:03:05.:03:08.

website without making clear which were posted by staff. NHS Choices

:03:09.:03:11.

has now removed more than 600 reviews of Nottinghamshire health

:03:12.:03:14.

care, but the Trust says just because the staff typed the comments

:03:15.:03:17.

does not mean it is not what patients thought. I think it is

:03:18.:03:26.

justified for staff to sometimes post on behalf of patients, when

:03:27.:03:30.

those patients are elderly `nd cannot use the technology to leave

:03:31.:03:33.

their comments. We believe that our staff are honest and open about what

:03:34.:03:37.

is happening and the culturd of the organisation is to listen to people

:03:38.:03:40.

and to listen authentically and honestly. The word on the street in

:03:41.:03:44.

Loughborough ` not everyone takes the word of Internet reviews at face

:03:45.:03:49.

value. If it is too extreme one way, I think the person has a grtdge If

:03:50.:03:54.

it is too far the other way, I think why is that person doing th`t? I

:03:55.:03:58.

always look at them but I don't know if I trust them are not. I would say

:03:59.:04:02.

they're fairly reliable. It is ultimately about transparency.

:04:03.:04:05.

Patient Opinion is looking `t how to spell out more clearly the source of

:04:06.:04:08.

comments. Rob Sissons, BBC West Midlands Today.

:04:09.:04:12.

People in a part of Leicestdr that was divided by protests and racial

:04:13.:04:16.

tension now say it is a thrhving community. A year and a half ago

:04:17.:04:20.

there was a heavy police prdsence in Thurnby Lodge as people argted over

:04:21.:04:26.

the use of local community centres. As Simon Ward has been findhng out,

:04:27.:04:29.

much of that division has now been healed.

:04:30.:04:33.

This food bank is run by a Luslim group and other volunteers. The vast

:04:34.:04:36.

majority of users are non`Mtslim, including Julie who is pickhng up

:04:37.:04:41.

supplies. At the end of the day we are all living on the same dstate so

:04:42.:04:45.

we have to get on with each other. It sets a route for your kids so

:04:46.:04:50.

they get on and there is no racism. So I think it is a good ide`. It was

:04:51.:04:54.

when the As`Salaam Trust wanted to continue using this former scout hut

:04:55.:04:58.

in Thurnby Lodge that the trouble began. There were regular protests

:04:59.:05:00.

towards the end of 2012. Sole opposed the group using the

:05:01.:05:04.

building. The bitter disputd took months to resolve. Now the @s`Salaam

:05:05.:05:08.

Trust use the Peace Centre building and the former protesters m`nage the

:05:09.:05:13.

old scout hut. They have made many improvements and say it is `

:05:14.:05:16.

thriving community facility. But they did not want to be intdrviewed

:05:17.:05:20.

on camera. Back at the Peacd Centre, they are very busy every Wednesday.

:05:21.:05:25.

If a person has a need, it could be anyone ` why not assist? Our

:05:26.:05:29.

religion exhorts us and teaches us about the rights of our neighbours

:05:30.:05:32.

and the people we see here `re our neighbours. The tension was

:05:33.:05:41.

sustained for a long period of time here on the Thurnby Lodge estate,

:05:42.:05:44.

and now, well things may not be perfect, but many say the community

:05:45.:05:48.

is now much more tolerant. H think people have recognised that

:05:49.:05:51.

everybody has their own views on things and things have really

:05:52.:05:59.

settled down. People here are very friendly and I find it very nice

:06:00.:06:05.

around this area. Theresa is a volunteer at another council

:06:06.:06:08.

community centre. She says that the former protesters wanted thd best

:06:09.:06:11.

for everyone. Having Thurnbx Lodge, because it is such a close

:06:12.:06:15.

community, I think they just did not want to lose things for the children

:06:16.:06:19.

in the area because so many things are being taken away. All those

:06:20.:06:26.

working for the community are planning even more improvemdnts and

:06:27.:06:29.

hoping the peace continues. Simon Ward, BBC East Midlands Tod`y,

:06:30.:06:34.

Thurnby Lodge. So it is goodbye from me, btt with

:06:35.:06:43.

your weather now here is Ch`rlie. Good evening. Things are set to turn

:06:44.:06:47.

much colder into tomorrow evening, but up until that point we hang on

:06:48.:06:55.

to a settled team. Things whll gradually cloud over, you would

:06:56.:07:01.

think the temperatures would still fall but actually the wind will keep

:07:02.:07:05.

that temperature at around six or seven Celsius. A cloudy start on

:07:06.:07:12.

Thursday. By the late morning things will start to clear up, brighter

:07:13.:07:20.

skies, and some sunshine. Some cloud will be brought towards us with some

:07:21.:07:26.

rain. We will see the temperatures fall. Temperatures around 12 degrees

:07:27.:07:31.

tomorrow, night it will be heavy in places.

:07:32.:07:34.

This is the outlook: Bright enough for Friday and the weekend but much

:07:35.:07:36.

colder and some of the showers could have a wintry nature.

:07:37.:07:53.

Cloud coming in from the Atlantic. When it moves through we will get

:07:54.:08:01.

cooler conditions with lively showers. But mild overnight with the

:08:02.:08:05.

south-westerly breeze dragging cloud across England and Wales. As you can

:08:06.:08:12.

see the heaviest rain and strongest winds overnight are confined to

:08:13.:08:15.

Scotland and northern Ireland. Wet and windy here but it is an mild

:08:16.:08:19.

night with the cloud cover and breeze. But, a miserable start to

:08:20.:08:26.

the day in Scotland. Wet and windy, gusty wind through the central

:08:27.:08:31.

lowlands in the morning. Up to 0 miles an hour and maybe more than

:08:32.:08:34.

that over some of the hills. Not pleasant in the morning rush-hour

:08:35.:08:36.

and not pleasant in Northern Ireland either. In England and Wales, a lot

:08:37.:08:42.

of cloud around but maybe a few breaks to the east of the Pennines.

:08:43.:08:48.

Cloudy skies elsewhere and drips and drops of
