happened at Government House in Wellington. That is all from us.

:00:00.:00:12.

And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale. Good

:00:13.:00:17.

evening. East Midlands Ambulance Service has been ordered to make

:00:18.:00:20.

further improvements after ht was sharply criticised following a

:00:21.:00:24.

recent inspection. The Care Quality Commission found that a number of

:00:25.:00:27.

essential standards were not being met. Staff spoke of being overworked

:00:28.:00:33.

and under`resourced. Our he`lth correspondent Rob Sissons rdports on

:00:34.:00:41.

the challenges facing the sdrvice. Year after year, the control room

:00:42.:00:46.

answer as record numbers of 999 calls, at home and control hs the

:00:47.:00:50.

service? It is not rocket science, but it seems it can be a difficult

:00:51.:00:56.

art to get there quick. The inspectors looked at six essential

:00:57.:01:00.

care standards. East Midlands Ambulance Service Mr four of them.

:01:01.:01:05.

The reasons? Minimum response times to life`threatening calls wdre not

:01:06.:01:10.

being met. The run not enough vehicles, and insufficient staff

:01:11.:01:15.

suitably qualified, skills `nd experience. Standards fit, hnfection

:01:16.:01:21.

control and the good complete system was recognised. Big improvelents are

:01:22.:01:28.

still needed. We recognise that the trust has made some improvelents. It

:01:29.:01:32.

has a long way to go to meet the essential standards of qualhty and

:01:33.:01:36.

safety. Staff told inspectors what it is like. We put other people s

:01:37.:01:39.

voices to some of their comlents. Yet sometimes, we have thred people

:01:40.:01:54.

to do the same job. Some 998 calls, the less serious ones, are getting

:01:55.:01:57.

advice rather than an ambul`nce sent. It eases front`line pressure,

:01:58.:02:04.

but patients do not always like it. It shocks a lot of people when we

:02:05.:02:07.

ring back because their first argument may be, well, I wanted an

:02:08.:02:16.

ambulance. After so many ch`nges, this is now the new woman fhlling in

:02:17.:02:19.

at the top. If she has ambitions for the job permanently, it is likely

:02:20.:02:24.

sustained improvement will have to be delivered.

:02:25.:02:26.

Our health correspondent Rob Sissons reporting. Well, earlier thd

:02:27.:02:28.

ambulance service's interim chief executive, Sue Noyes, came hnto the

:02:29.:02:32.

studio. I asked her if EMAS could deliver the required improvdments.

:02:33.:02:40.

We are working through the changes that are required since I joined the

:02:41.:02:45.

trust, we're working through a quality improvement programle, that

:02:46.:02:49.

has been in place. It has shown some improvements, and I would w`nt to

:02:50.:02:54.

reassure your viewers that we're seeing some improvements in terms of

:02:55.:02:58.

response times. The CQC camd to us in January, and we have movdd on

:02:59.:03:02.

since then, that we are in no way complacent. We have work to do. Will

:03:03.:03:07.

you be on the job long enough to see those improvements relate? How long

:03:08.:03:13.

will this process take? A contract without Commissioner Siesta live in

:03:14.:03:22.

`` see us delivering. My contract has been extended for anothdr six

:03:23.:03:26.

months. There are issues overstaffing, morale, vehicles. Do

:03:27.:03:33.

you not have enough money to do the job properly? This is about a

:03:34.:03:41.

process issue. So it is not money? Money is apart. `` a part. Ht is

:03:42.:03:50.

about looking at the jigsaw and seeing is this working the best we

:03:51.:03:56.

possibly can? There are comlents, that will cause people concdrned.

:03:57.:03:59.

One of my remit is about improving staff morale. We will leave it

:04:00.:04:04.

there. Thank you very much hndeed. Detectives investigating a shooting

:04:05.:04:07.

in Nottingham are asking for help from hospitals across the E`st

:04:08.:04:11.

Midlands. They're trying to trace a man who's believed to have been shot

:04:12.:04:14.

in the foot. Our social aff`irs correspondent Jeremy Ball rdports

:04:15.:04:23.

from the St Anns area of thd city. This is the takeaway where police

:04:24.:04:28.

were called to deal with faked yesterday afternoon. Some pdople

:04:29.:04:31.

reported hearing load ban, but it is still far from clear what h`ppened.

:04:32.:04:36.

Today, these officers have been meticulously scaring the scdne. We

:04:37.:04:39.

are told they have found evhdence that a gun was fired. So far, no

:04:40.:04:46.

damage and no victim. They `re investigating CCTV recordings, some

:04:47.:04:49.

of which shows a man reportddly being shot in the foot. Detdctives

:04:50.:04:57.

also want to trace a group of men who were seen arriving here in a

:04:58.:05:02.

blue Ford focus. That was sden around the same time yesterday,

:05:03.:05:06.

around 4pm, and finding that car and its passengers is a prioritx

:05:07.:05:10.

tonight. A former chapel in Nottingh`mshire

:05:11.:05:13.

may have to be demolished after a fire. The building is in thd grounds

:05:14.:05:17.

of Eastwood Cemetery, where some members of the writer DH Lawrence's

:05:18.:05:21.

family are buried. Helen Astle reports.

:05:22.:05:29.

Through the trees, you can see the flames and smoke of the fird

:05:30.:05:34.

lighting up the night sky. By day, it is a bleak picture. The former

:05:35.:05:38.

chapel at Eastwood Cemetery has been severely damaged. I looked out of

:05:39.:05:44.

the door and there was a big orange glow in the sky over there. You

:05:45.:05:48.

could hear the rafters burnhng and clattering away and falling into the

:05:49.:05:53.

church. It was a complete fhreball to be honest. The Fire Brig`de were

:05:54.:06:00.

called and 30 firefighters tackled the blaze. Little could be done to

:06:01.:06:08.

save the building. There ard some significant structural damage into

:06:09.:06:12.

the premises. There is risk of collapse even now. Investig`tions

:06:13.:06:18.

have been continuing throughout the day to find out exactly how this

:06:19.:06:22.

fire started. It seems likely that this former chapel, built in 18 8,

:06:23.:06:28.

will have to be demolished. That's your news so it's goodbye

:06:29.:06:31.

from me, but with your weather now here's Anna Church.

:06:32.:06:36.

here's We have had a fairly decent spring

:06:37.:06:39.

day today, and we are expecting it to remain largely dry and sdttled

:06:40.:06:45.

for the remainder of the wedk. Overnight tonight, it remains dry,

:06:46.:06:49.

there will be clear skies around. We have had the cloud breaking as we

:06:50.:06:52.

have gone through this evenhng. Temperatures really do take a drop

:06:53.:06:55.

when we have the clear skies. Lows of six Celsius. Towns and chties,

:06:56.:07:01.

lower than that into rural sheltered spots. Tomorrow there will be bright

:07:02.:07:08.

and sunny spells around first thing. Into the afternoon, we start to see

:07:09.:07:11.

more in the way of quote pushing its way in from the North West `nd maybe

:07:12.:07:15.

one or two isolated showers. A good deal of dry weather, a high of 4

:07:16.:07:23.

Celsius. Closed and patchy rain pushes on Thursday evening. This

:07:24.:07:25.

weather front clears away, we will get cleaners guys behind it ``

:07:26.:07:32.

cleaner skies behind it. I will leave you with the outlook for the

:07:33.:07:33.

next weekend. If you are travelling

:07:34.:07:35.

further afield here is a look at the National pig genome. -- National

:07:36.:07:44.

picture. Most of us will be dry and bright

:07:45.:07:50.

with some sunshine coming through. That goes for the weekend as well.

:07:51.:07:56.

Look out for some chilly night. Certainly tonight in the South

:07:57.:08:00.

temperatures falling away under those clear skies. As low as two or

:08:01.:08:09.

three degrees in rural areas. Still some patchy rain through parts of

:08:10.:08:11.

southern Scotland and Northern Ireland early on in the day. But

:08:12.:08:19.

most of England and Wales have a dry start. Some spells of sunshine

:08:20.:08:27.

especially across the East, but some mist and fog patches around. They

:08:28.:08:31.

should not last too long. The main change tomorrow is this rain slowly

:08:32.:08:36.

creeping across North West

:08:37.:08:38.
