Good afternoon. With your ndws now for the East Midlands, I'm Laurice
Flynn. The Ministry of Defence has formally identified ten unknown
soldiers killed in World War I, among them a private from the East
Midlands. The remains of John Richmond from Nottingham were found
during building work in France. It's thought he may have died in 191 in
one of the first French battles of the war. Officials have been working
to match his DNA with that of his surviving family in Ravenshdad.
Private Richmond will be reburied with full military honours hn France
later this year. Some of thd family will go over. I know it will be a
very emotional occasion. It will help us to remember. A headstone
will have his name on, which will be there for future generations. I am
proud that he was there and I have great respect for him that he went
and fought for us and our freedom. Police patrols are being stdpped up
on a railway line as part of efforts to cut anti`social behaviour. The
extra patrols will be on thd Robin Hood Line between Nottinghal and
Worksop on Friday and Saturday evenings. It follows a succdssful
operation last year, which saw a significant reduction in drtnken
behaviour on board trains on the line. Over the years, the Robin Hood
line has had a history of hhgher proportion of issues of
alcohol`related disorder and anti`social behaviour. It's
particularly prevalent on Friday and Saturday nights. We are aimhng to
clamp down on that sort of behaviour.
To sport and in football, Ddrby County host Nottingham Forest, in
the big match of the day. It kicked off at 12.15pm, and at half time the
current score sees Derby Cotnty a goal up. Catch the second h`lf
action on BBC Radio Derby or Nottingham. Both are of course
covering it. We'll have your first look at the action at 5.20pl.
To later kick`offs and at the top of the Championship, Leicester are at
Blackburn. Live Commentary on that game on BBC Radio Leicester from
two. In League One, Notts County host Carlisle at Meadow Land. In
League Two, there's derby action for Mansfield Town too, the Stags are
hosting Chesterfield. It kicked off a few mins ago. Currently no score.
The Nottingham Panthers facd an uphill task to win the Challenge Cup
after last night's defeat. They lost 5`2 in Belfast in the first leg of
the final. The second leg is in Nottingham on Tuesday.
Blue skies and some big clotds today. What's in store for ts, Kaye?
We were lucky with the showdrs this morning. We have bands of them now
starting to push in. In the heavy bursts, they could turn wintry
across the Peak District. The possibility of a little bit of
sleep. Some sunshine in between Temperatures will feel quitd chilly
at seven or eight Celsius. The showers will continue for a time
this evening. They will fadd away for most of us. One or two of them
will continue through the e`rly hours. Again, there could bd a
wintry element to them across higher ground. Turning cold tonight with
temperatures close to freezhng. A dryer, bright start for most of us
tomorrow morning. A couple of these showers will continue into the
afternoon but more sunshine for us tomorrow. Wrap up warmly because it
is feeling cold once again. Back with you at 5.20pm, whdn we'll
have the first pictures of `ny goals in the Derby County and Nottingham
Forest match. Goodbye for now.
