homes in Hartington Street xesterday morning. It's an area known for high

year. Network Rail and Brithsh Transport Police are tackling the

:02:57.:02:58.

problem by reintroducing safety trains, as Jo Healey reports.

:02:59.:03:08.

Look at the risk they are rtnning. Trains travel up to 125 milds an

:03:09.:03:14.

hour and can take a mile and a quarter to stop. If someone is on

:03:15.:03:18.

the tracks train cannot stop quickly. This attack and thhs

trespassing happened locallx. These are reasons why safety trains had

train but it is staffed by officers from British Transport Police and

:03:34.:03:37.

staff from British rail. If they see anything going on that should not

deal with it. There were 57 reports of trespassing and vandalisl on this

:03:50.:03:54.

line last year. On tracks across the East Midlands there were more than

:03:55.:04:00.

500 incidents, with 14 reported just last week. The delays they caused

There's a call for more bushnesses to start exporting to Brazil. A

:04:40.:04:42.

trade mission from the East Midlands has been out to the city of Sao

:04:43.:04:46.

Paulo to meet potential customers and partners. Here's Mike O'Sullivan

:04:47.:04:49.

with the first in a series of special reports from South @merica.

:04:50.:04:52.

They call the Brazilian supdr city of Sao Paulo the New York of the

:04:53.:04:57.

tropics. It is a World Cup venue, a place for World Cup protest as

:04:58.:05:01.

well. It is big with 30 million people and it is big on bushness.

:05:02.:05:06.

Doing business in Sao Paulo means getting around the legendarx traffic

:05:07.:05:11.

problem. Some Brazilians do it by helicopter. This building h`s a

:05:12.:05:16.

helipad 24 stories up. Can our businesses get to lift off hn this

:05:17.:05:20.

economic powerhouse to make their export ambitions take flight?

:05:21.:05:25.

Six businesses and organisations have come here on a four`dax trade

:05:26.:05:30.

mission from the East Midlands. This is their market briefing from UK

:05:31.:05:36.

Trade Investment, the govdrnment trade agency that setup the trip.

Back home this man's firm elploys 11 people making specialist eqtipment

:05:46.:05:50.

for everything from laboratories to Labour `` laser printers. Wd have to

:05:51.:05:55.

export, the market in the UK is pretty saturated. We are dohng OK in

:05:56.:05:59.

the States which will continue to grow but we must find growth

:06:00.:06:03.

elsewhere as well. Many companies are not making Brazil a high

:06:04.:06:07.

priority. We have set a target to double our exports which is

:06:08.:06:12.

achievable but stretching. They say that this could be a city and

:06:13.:06:16.

country that stretches the horizons of our businesses.

:06:17.:06:21.

Tomorrow night Mike looks at how the Triumph motorcycle company hs taking

:06:22.:06:23.

part in that Brazilian economic miracle.
