Midlands, I'm Anne Davies. First tonight, it started with two hours

:00:19.:00:21.

of botched surgery, it ended with months of poor health that cost a

surgery in the wrong area. Lalitaben Patel suffered rain damage because

:00:33.:00:35.

of mistakes during gall bladder surgery. The 71`year`old died seven

:00:36.:00:39.

months after the operation, which was performed at the Leicester Royal

:00:40.:00:54.

Infirmary. It was two hours before operating threatre staff noticed

things were going wrong and called in someone senior to take over.

Managers have apologised to the family. Our reporter has been

:01:00.:01:03.

following the case, this should not have happened, should it? That is

:01:04.:01:10.

right. There were three holes made any major artery that blessed to the

:01:11.:01:16.

haemorrhage and it was a result of that that this woman did. The

:01:17.:01:27.

hospital trust say they have brought in checks to make sure local doctors

:01:28.:01:33.

are up to the same standards as full`time staff. Tonight the

:01:34.:01:36.

Department of Health have told us they want to have much offer checks

:01:37.:01:45.

carried out on locums. The GMC are still investigating this surgeon. He

:01:46.:01:51.

cannot operate in the private sector and if he does laparoscopic

:01:52.:01:56.

operations, they have to be done under supervision. The investigation

:01:57.:02:01.

into his case is ongoing. Customers have reacted angrily to the news

:02:02.:02:04.

their local building society branches are to close. The

:02:05.:02:06.

Nationwide says shutting its Derbyshire Building Society branches

:02:07.:02:09.

is a "logical" decision. It means the brand will disappear from the

:02:10.:02:16.

High Street. Simon Hare reports. This woman has been using her local

:02:17.:02:21.

branch of the Derbyshire Building Society since childhood but she has

:02:22.:02:28.

just been told it is going to close. We have always had this building

:02:29.:02:33.

society, it has always been there. In the current economic climate you

:02:34.:02:37.

cannot buy brand loyalty and they are throwing it away. Nationwide

:02:38.:02:47.

merged with the Derbyshire in 2008. The brand was in doubt following the

:02:48.:02:52.

financial crisis. The number of branches did close but now it has

:02:53.:02:56.

been announced the further ten across the county will shut with 17

:02:57.:03:02.

others being merged or rebranded as nationwide. When other branches shut

:03:03.:03:09.

in recent years nationwide said customers did not have far to travel

:03:10.:03:13.

to places like this one which is also no closing. In a statement it

:03:14.:03:20.

said that the closures and rebranding was the next logical step

:03:21.:03:26.

in integrating its businesses. The Derbyshire brand is expected to

:03:27.:03:29.

disappear from the high street over the course of one weekend later this

:03:30.:03:36.

year. Derby City Council has saved more than a ?100,000 a year in

:03:37.:03:40.

pothole work after taking over the job from a private company. The

:03:41.:03:42.

council's own team have been repairing 90 potholes a week on

:03:43.:03:46.

average compared to the 55 a week fixed by the private company,

:03:47.:03:49.

Carillion. The move has saved the authority ?110,000 a year. Carillion

:03:50.:03:54.

says its roads maintenance service was "robust and efficient". The

:03:55.:04:01.

University of Nottingham will celebrate the tenth anniversary of

:04:02.:04:04.

its Ningbo operation in China this year. The idea for a Chinese campus

:04:05.:04:07.

came from the business relationship between the University's former vice

:04:08.:04:10.

Chancellor and one of China's top nuclear scientists. The Ningbo

:04:11.:04:16.

campus was formally opened in 2006 and is now home to almost 6,000

:04:17.:04:22.

students. A supermarket has promised to try to move a Nottingham cash

:04:23.:04:26.

machine ` after it proved rather more challenging for customers than

:04:27.:04:31.

usual. The unique ATM's been built on the side of a road in Basford.

:04:32.:04:39.

Carolyn Moses went to see it. The cash machine, the way we check our

:04:40.:04:44.

bank balance and get hold of notes. But this one is proving a little

:04:45.:04:50.

harder than most to use. This cash machine Bierley comes up to my knee

:04:51.:04:57.

and I am not all, it is 15 inches off of the ground. That means you

:04:58.:05:03.

have to go that little bit further to get your cash. You have to really

:05:04.:05:10.

bend down to have a look at it. It is a bit of the pain. It is all

:05:11.:05:17.

right for small or disabled people because they find it easier to get

:05:18.:05:22.

to. The folder is quite dirty and you have to bend down, it is not the

:05:23.:05:28.

easiest one to use. It causes strain on the knees and ankles, it would be

:05:29.:05:34.

better if it was higher. It does suit this pint sized punter and

:05:35.:05:42.

Sainsbury's says it has not had any customer complaints. They now have

:05:43.:05:47.

plans to relocate what is written's blows machine and then cashpoint

:05:48.:05:53.

customers can walk tall. On to tonight's football, and there's a

:05:54.:05:56.

full set of results. In the Championship Ipswich beat Derby

:05:57.:05:58.

County 2`1. League leaders Leicester City had a 1`1 draw with Yeovil. And

:05:59.:06:02.

Nottingham Forest, under caretaker manager Gary Brazil lost to Charlton

:06:03.:06:05.

1`0. In league One, it finished Crewe one, Notts County three. And

:06:06.:06:08.

in League Two, Mansfield beat Hartlepool 4`2. In Ice Hockey, it's

:06:09.:06:15.

the been the second leg of the semi final of the Challenge Cup. It

:06:16.:06:17.

finished Nottingham Panthers four, Belfast one. Panthers were three

:06:18.:06:23.

goals down from the first leg, so that's 6`6 on aggregate. Panthers

:06:24.:06:38.

won any penalty shoot out. Now the weather. We are in between weather

:06:39.:06:45.

fronts at the moment but we have another one pushing in for tomorrow

:06:46.:06:50.

morning. We will start dry and bright with some sunshine for the

:06:51.:06:55.

morning. We are starting dry tonight and we will remain dry for the rest

:06:56.:07:00.

of the night. Some holes in the cloud so temperatures will fall

:07:01.:07:04.

away. Some of us close to freezing by morning. The dry and bright start

:07:05.:07:10.

for many of us with some sunshine during the morning hours but the

:07:11.:07:14.

cloud will thicken and we will have scattered showers by the afternoon.

:07:15.:07:19.

Some of these could be wintry by the afternoon. Wherever you are it is

:07:20.:07:24.

going to feel cold in those winds. The outlook is for conditions to

:07:25.:07:31.

stay cool and showery for the rest of the week.

:07:32.:07:33.

might be wintry. Feeling chilly at 10 degrees. The outlook, it stays

:07:34.:07:37.

chilly and temperatures look like they will pick up towards the eight

:07:38.:07:42.

-- weekend. In early spring, a bit of sunshine

:07:43.:07:46.

makes the difference. Today we had some sunshine in the far east of the

:07:47.:07:51.

UK and in the far west. In Northern Ireland and East Anglia,

:07:52.:07:55.

temperatures climbed into the teens. But for most of us, it was gloomy

:07:56.:08:00.

and temperatures were at sixes and sevens. Single figure temperatures

:08:01.:08:04.

will feature heavily over the next few days. We are already seeing the

:08:05.:08:09.

weather coming in from the east pushing the weather to the West so

:08:10.:08:13.

we will see showers continuing in the night. Isolated showers. Most

:08:14.:08:20.

towns and cities just about avoiding a frost but in rural areas we will

:08:21.:08:24.

seek pockets of frost and fog patches for the morning. Some

:08:25.:08:29.

showers across the West but it will brighten up in the West, however in

:08:30.:08:33.

the East the cloud thickens, the winds pick up and out rakes of rain

:08:34.:08:36.

coming from the North Sea. It will be a different day across East

:08:37.:08:42.

Anglia. Feeling much colder. Five or six Celsius with outbreaks of rain

:08:43.:08:47.

and some of the rain could be on the heavy side at times across the

:08:48.:08:48.
