the evening on the BBC News Channel. And I'll be back with

:00:00.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:20.

First tonight, the police are investigating the death of a woman

:00:21.:00:23.

in Derby. Her body was found this morning on Hartington Street by a

:00:24.:00:26.

passer`by. Her death is being treated as suspicious. The area has

:00:27.:00:29.

been cordoned off, while forensic examinations continue.

:00:30.:00:32.

Police are also investigating the death of a man found in a derelict

:00:33.:00:36.

building in Nottingham this weekend. His body was found on land on

:00:37.:00:39.

Sneinton Hermitage off Manvers Street. The police have not yet

:00:40.:00:43.

identified him nor released any information about how he died.

:00:44.:00:47.

Villagers living near an animal waste processing plant are

:00:48.:00:50.

threatening to sue the company if it fails to reduce the smells coming

:00:51.:00:55.

from the site. The factory at Low Marnham near Newark processes animal

:00:56.:00:58.

remains left over from the meat industry. It says it's operating

:00:59.:01:02.

within all laws and standards and is in the process of installing a new

:01:03.:01:07.

system to burn off the odour. Residents say the smell is

:01:08.:01:10.

unbearable. We are used to factories, we are

:01:11.:01:14.

used to smells. We have the Newark factory that we get a smell from, we

:01:15.:01:18.

have fertilisers. But this is a completely different smell. It is

:01:19.:01:21.

vile. Meaty yoghurt. It's a smell that you can taste. It lingers and

:01:22.:01:25.

it lingers for hours. You can't get it out of your house or your body.

:01:26.:01:32.

Police searching for a teenager reported missing in Leicester say

:01:33.:01:35.

she's been found safe and well. Ana Simeonova hadn't been seen since

:01:36.:01:38.

last month. The 15`year`old handed herself into a police station last

:01:39.:01:41.

night, after being a being recognised in the street. A

:01:42.:01:43.

29`year`old man arrested in connection with the case remains in

:01:44.:01:46.

police custody. Seven other men arrested have had their police bail

:01:47.:01:50.

cancelled. The head teacher at a troubled

:01:51.:01:53.

junior school in Leicester has resigned. Tim Luckcock was suspended

:01:54.:01:57.

from Uplands Junior School, in the Highfields, last September. The

:01:58.:02:02.

governors were also removed over concerns about how the school was

:02:03.:02:06.

being run. A spokesperson for Leicester City Council says it will

:02:07.:02:10.

now recruit a permanent head. Official celebration plans for

:02:11.:02:13.

Leicester City's promotion to the Premier League are yet to be

:02:14.:02:16.

announced, but that hasn't stopped the fans or players. They've been

:02:17.:02:19.

enjoying the news that the Foxes will start next season back in the

:02:20.:02:24.

top flight. With more on that and the rest of the weekend's football,

:02:25.:02:27.

here's Kirsty Edwards. Captured on camera, the moment the

:02:28.:02:30.

Leicester players found out they had been promoted. Just like the fans,

:02:31.:02:34.

they had been watching the results come in yesterday, with scorelines

:02:35.:02:37.

going their way in the games involving QPR and Derby. It had all

:02:38.:02:42.

been made possible after the Foxes' game on Friday night, Riyad Mahrez's

:02:43.:02:45.

goal setting them on their way to a win over Sheffield Wednesday. The

:02:46.:02:50.

visitors had made it all square for a time but Leicester had been so

:02:51.:02:54.

resilient this season and a brilliant Anthony Knockaert free

:02:55.:02:57.

kick in the second half sealed the 2`1 win. It was a win leaving the

:02:58.:03:04.

team looking forward to the Premier League. It's fantastic for the boys,

:03:05.:03:08.

and credit to the manager as well. He has picked the right team and he

:03:09.:03:13.

has got the boys going. It has not been easy games every game.

:03:14.:03:16.

Sometimes you have to dig in, sometimes it's been comfortable.

:03:17.:03:19.

It's been fantastic. And I'm proud to represent Leicester and be the

:03:20.:03:23.

captain. Look at this here at the King Power Stadium today. The shirts

:03:24.:03:27.

are already printed up. And no wonder. After a ten year absence,

:03:28.:03:30.

top`flight football is returning to Leicester.

:03:31.:03:35.

Elsewhere, Derby County are hoping they can join Leicester. They are

:03:36.:03:39.

still firmly in the play`offs despite falling to a 1`0 defeat to

:03:40.:03:42.

Middlesbrough yesterday. Nottingham Forest are now five

:03:43.:03:45.

points off the play`off places, a Jara own goal setting them on their

:03:46.:03:49.

way to a 2`1 defeat at home to Millwall. Jamie Paterson's

:03:50.:03:54.

second`half goal turning out to be a mere consolation.

:03:55.:03:58.

Notts County found themselves down to ten men at Brentford with Haydn

:03:59.:04:02.

Hollis sent off and giving away a penalty just half an hour in. Former

:04:03.:04:06.

Notts man Alan Judge scored twice for the home side with Jimmy

:04:07.:04:10.

Spencer's goal not enough to stop Notts slipping back into the

:04:11.:04:15.

relegation zone. No such problems for Mansfield Town,

:04:16.:04:18.

a great free kick from Colin Daniel earning them a win over Morecambe.

:04:19.:04:27.

Despite being wet at times, and cold, around 5000 people took part

:04:28.:04:32.

in today's 10K in Derby. This year's event included an elite wheelchair

:04:33.:04:35.

category for the first time. Among competitors was Baroness Tanni

:04:36.:04:38.

Grey`Thompson and Phil Hogg from Heanor, who went on to win the race

:04:39.:04:43.

in under 28 minutes. We train hard, we train really hard.

:04:44.:04:47.

I train twice a day, seven days a week. For us to be able to race on

:04:48.:04:51.

home soil, it is eight miles away from where I live, it's pretty

:04:52.:04:54.

important. This is the first time we've done the 10K wheelchair race

:04:55.:04:58.

and we're into double figures. If you look at comparable events in the

:04:59.:05:01.

country, some don't achieve that. So for us to do that in all our first

:05:02.:05:06.

year is quite exceptional. Let's check the latest on the

:05:07.:05:09.

weather now. Charlie has our forecast.

:05:10.:05:11.

Good evening. Well, a showery evening will turn into a rather wet

:05:12.:05:16.

night once we get into the early hours of Monday morning. You can see

:05:17.:05:20.

some showers creeping up. Then the rain will start to move in. It might

:05:21.:05:24.

turn heavy for some of us just before dawn on a very mild night.

:05:25.:05:28.

The rest of the rain spreads in with earnest as we go through rush hour,

:05:29.:05:31.

turning very heavy for a time indeed. It won't be a pleasant day

:05:32.:05:35.

through the first part of it. It will slowly start to dry out into

:05:36.:05:39.

the afternoon. There is good news to come. High pressure will build

:05:40.:05:43.

itself nicely into play for Tuesday. That will make sure we see the

:05:44.:05:47.

weather return to a drier and more settled path. However it will just

:05:48.:05:50.

be a little bit cooler. More at 22.15.

:05:51.:06:03.

Good evening, after a fairly mild weekend, a fresher week in store for

:06:04.:06:13.

the week ahead. Moreshine at times but not a huge amount tomorrow

:06:14.:06:18.

because that's shaping up to be a wet day for just about all of us.

:06:19.:06:21.

The rain developing through the night and it is still wet at the

:06:22.:06:25.

moment in southern counties. Watch how the rain becomes more extensive

:06:26.:06:29.

and heavier with a strengthening breeze. For northern England and

:06:30.:06:34.

Northern Ireland, a colder feel to the night. In northern Scotland,

:06:35.:06:42.

there will be temperatures in sheltered spots. A mild start for

:06:43.:06:45.

Monday. If you escape through

:06:46.:06:47.
