more throughout the evening on the BBC News channel. We are back with

:00:00.3:59:59

the late news With your news now for the East

:00:00.:00:18.

Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. First tonight, Leicester City have

:00:19.:00:21.

been promoted to the Premier League. After ten years out of it, last

:00:22.:00:25.

night's win for the Foxes, plus this afternoon's results for QPR and

:00:26.:00:28.

Derby County, sees City back up. Our sports editor Natalie Jackson's with

:00:29.:00:34.

me now. 21 games unbeaten ` it was a matter of when not if, wasn't it?

:00:35.:00:37.

Yes, Maurice, Leicester City have been utterly dominant in the

:00:38.:00:41.

Championship. Top of the league every week since boxing day. It's

:00:42.:00:48.

been a recording breaking season. We were with fans at the Bull's Head

:00:49.:00:51.

pub in Countesthorpe near Leicester and they couldn't have been happier.

:00:52.:00:54.

With them too was Liecester former captain Steve Walsh.

:00:55.:01:00.

It's been a long time coming. It was 20 years ago in May that I actually

:01:01.:01:04.

scored two goals against Derby County to take us into the Premier

:01:05.:01:07.

League for the very first time. So, you know, I've got special memories

:01:08.:01:12.

of that. I was there last night to see them beat Sheffield Wednesday.

:01:13.:01:16.

Just being with the fans and seeing the results come in, you know, it's

:01:17.:01:19.

a great feeling. I'm amazed it's all gone our way today but what a

:01:20.:01:23.

feeling. I can't wait to get back in the Prem next season and go to some

:01:24.:01:27.

of these big grounds. We've been better than everyone and goals,

:01:28.:01:30.

goals, goals. Premier League! It's a strange way for them to go

:01:31.:01:34.

up, watching today's results and not in front of their home fans.

:01:35.:01:45.

It is issue that they weren't at their owners Stadium but they won't

:01:46.:01:54.

care. They have been through relegation, administration and two

:01:55.:01:57.

play`off heartbreaks so this means everything.

:01:58.:02:03.

There'll be huge celebrations tonight, but when do you think the

:02:04.:02:09.

promotion party will be? They play on Tuesday night and there

:02:10.:02:18.

will be a massive promotion party. If they win the next six games they

:02:19.:02:24.

will have the highest points total ever for a championship team.

:02:25.:02:32.

To more of the day's news now, and police investigating the

:02:33.:02:35.

disappearance of a teenage girl in Leicester have made another arrest.

:02:36.:02:37.

15`year`old Ana Simeonova was last seen by her family in the Lee Circle

:02:38.:02:41.

area of Leicester on March 25th. Police arrested a 29`year`old man

:02:42.:02:44.

last night. He's the eighth person to be held in connection with the

:02:45.:02:47.

teenager's disappearance. A Derbyshire cricketer has been

tomorrow's county match between Derbyshire and Leicestershire has

:03:00.:03:05.

been postponed until June. Back to sport now, and to today's

:03:06.:03:10.

results. As we saw earlier it was a 1`0 defeat for Derby County at

:03:11.:03:13.

Middlesbrough. And Forest went down 2`1 at home to Millwall. It's now 11

:03:14.:03:17.

there will be further showery outbreaks. Between the showers,

:03:43.:03:45.

there will be some dry spells but quite a bit of cloud around. That

:03:46.:03:48.

will stop the temperatures dropping too far. A mild night. Tomorrow we

:03:49.:03:52.

are going to see more rain. It will be breezy but temperatures are not

:03:53.:03:56.

doing badly at all. At first it will be showery but the rain becomes more

persistent over the day. We may see some moderate bursts before it

:04:02.:04:03.

starts to clear eastwards towards the evening. It will be breezy but

temperatures doing as well as today. Monday will also be fairly

:04:09.:04:09.

unsettled, too. The beat is already underway on your

:05:01.:05:16.

Celsius today in parts of East Anglia but it was the bright spot in

:05:17.:05:20.

an otherwise cloudy day and it is the cloud that will dominate

:05:21.:05:24.

tonight, bringing splashes of rain and dryer moments as well

:05:25.:05:26.

particularly in the north-east of Scotland but heavy bursts can't be
