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

evening. First, the Government will not try

:00:17.:00:20.

to save Thoresby Colliery, the last remaining deep coal mine in the East

:00:21.:00:23.

Midlands. Instead, it's loaning it ?10 million to help manage hts

:00:24.:00:35.

closure. The National Union of Mineworkers is tonight warnhng that

lay`offs could begin next month Here's John Hess. Thoresby Colliery.

Today, confirmation it will shut in autumn next year, with the loss of

:00:59.:01:03.

several hundred jobs. The btsiness minister told MPs that maintaining

:01:04.:01:06.

coal production here and its sister picked in Yorkshire was not value

:01:07.:01:11.

for money. We are prepared hn principle to contribute a ?00

:01:12.:01:13.

million loan alongside contributions from other private`sector investors

:01:14.:01:18.

to help support a managed closure of the cholera is which would `void the

:01:19.:01:23.

significant losses and liabhlities `` closure of the colliery. UK coal

:01:24.:01:33.

says there are enough reserves here to last another four years, so there

:01:34.:01:38.

is an element of disappointlent and resignation at the announcelent The

:01:39.:01:42.

debate focuses on the impact on the local community. When a big employer

:01:43.:01:50.

like this closes, it has a knock`on effects to businesses that supply.

:01:51.:02:07.

The 600 jobs could become any more. The team will be sent to Shdrwood MP

:02:08.:02:12.

Mark Spencer is here now. The colliery to advise. Verx bad

:02:13.:02:19.

news for many of your consthtuents. First redundancies could be as early

:02:20.:02:22.

million. It won't safeguard any jobs long term. It is worth noting, it is

:02:43.:02:50.

a commercial loan. It is not a freebie. I keep hoping therd will be

:02:51.:03:03.

a commercial businessman who can come in and make a profit again Is

:03:04.:03:08.

there still talk of a prospdctive buyer? They seem to have ev`porated,

:03:09.:03:15.

which is why we are in this dark place. It is worth rememberhng

:03:16.:03:24.

hundred ?16 worth of coal still underground. There has to bd a

:03:25.:03:29.

commercial way of getting it out of the ground. Many of your

:03:30.:03:35.

constituents will be grateftl for your interest, but may still blame

:03:36.:03:39.

your government for starting the demise of this industry.

:03:40.:03:46.

I think that is unfair. If the previous government were minded to

:03:47.:03:48.

support, they could have reopened Harwood. We are a fairly dark

:03:49.:04:04.

place. Thank you. Nottinghamshire Police have been

:04:05.:04:06.

ordered to reinstate an offhcer they sacked after he was wrongly

:04:07.:04:09.

convicted of rape. Detectivd Sergeant Trevor Gray was dismissed

:04:10.:04:12.

after being sentenced to eight years for attacking a woman at her home.

:04:13.:04:15.

But that conviction was quashed and he was cleared at a retrial. Now the

:04:16.:04:19.

Police Appeals Tribunal has ruled that Mr Gray can return to his job.

:04:20.:04:25.

reports. The building is now clearly taking place with a track area and

:04:49.:04:53.

central in field below clearly defined. The Council video has been

:04:54.:04:57.

produced to give the public idea what the building will look like

:04:58.:05:01.

inside when it is finished. Councillors say it will be tnlike

:05:02.:05:04.

the other velodromes in England Scotland and Wales. This is a

:05:05.:05:12.

multi`user SportsCenter as well We have the gym, a conference centre,

:05:13.:05:16.

and exhibition centre and some were for concerts. We will provide a

:05:17.:05:24.

really good facility. The track once just before professionals. The

:05:25.:05:29.

public will be at hire bikes. With the exterior eventually finhshed,

:05:30.:05:34.

apparently the interior shotld be finished by November, and the

:06:22.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:32.

It is a quiet weather story at the moment. Looks like it will be

:06:33.:06:37.

staying dry and settled for the rest of the week. Tomorrow is looking

:06:38.:06:42.

like a fine day. We have sole clear skies but we will start to see some

five Celsius. Tomorrow mornhng, we continue to see that cloud pushing

hit by a powerful cyclone bringing whether that is just about as bad as

:07:45.:07:50.

it gets with winds gusting over 100 miles an hour and potentially

:07:51.:07:55.

flooding rain. First of all, back home our weather could not be more

:07:56.:08:01.

different. Settled weather generally for the next few days including the
