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

scheme to compensate traders affected by work on Nottingham's

:00:21.:00:24.

tram network has been expanded. Parts of Beeston and Chilwell have

:00:25.:00:27.

been closed for months to allow for construction. Firms say it's hit

:00:28.:00:37.

business hard. Amy Harris reports. This woman has been running this

:00:38.:00:42.

cycle shop in Beeston 421 years. But she is now facing closure, with

:00:43.:00:49.

takings by half. Getting into Beeston has been so difficult that

:00:50.:00:55.

people have come because they are being told it is not affected. When

:00:56.:01:01.

they come and sit in a queue of traffic to 40 minutes, they do not

:01:02.:01:06.

come back. Compensation had been restricted to businesses closest to

:01:07.:01:11.

the works, which meant that she and others missed out. Now

:01:12.:01:15.

Nottinghamshire County Council is extending the area covered. In a

:01:16.:01:19.

statement the council says it is committed to supporting the vitality

:01:20.:01:25.

of Beeston and Chilwell. It said it will consider future applications

:01:26.:01:29.

from businesses outside the financial assistance area who can

:01:30.:01:32.

demonstrate they have been directly affected by the works. It has been

:01:33.:01:37.

cautiously welcomed by campaigners, who have petitioned for action. Now

:01:38.:01:42.

we need to put the money in because we are concerned there will not be

:01:43.:01:47.

enough money. There is two and a half million, but we believe we need

:01:48.:01:53.

more. The campaign now evolves to increase the cash available. At

:01:54.:01:56.

least six businesses have closed, with others leaving and with weeks

:01:57.:02:01.

of travel disruption ahead, campaigners want the pay`outs to

:02:02.:02:07.

grow, not the number of casualties. The Heritage Lottery is helping to

:02:08.:02:10.

remember 30 soldiers from one Leicestershire village killed in

:02:11.:02:13.

World War I. ?8,000 will allow historians in Wymeswold to write a

:02:14.:02:16.

book and create a website about the men. There were only around 700

:02:17.:02:21.

people in the village when they died.

:02:22.:02:29.

Around the country is, generally, 10% of the men who served were

:02:30.:02:36.

killed. In Wymeswold, it looks, so far, about 30% of the men who served

:02:37.:02:42.

were killed, possibly higher. We are talking about the slaughter of those

:02:43.:02:48.

men. Ahead of today's results, and non`league football sides in

Nottinghamshire hosted a ground hop today. It saw kick`off times

staggered at Keyworth, Wollaton, Ruddington and West Bridgford, so

:02:54.:02:56.

fans could go to matches back to back. Crowds also increased, with

:02:57.:02:59.

some fans travelling from Japan, Holland and Sweden. I love the

:03:00.:03:08.

atmosphere. I love the people here. I like to travel and see new places

:03:09.:03:13.

and teams and there are a lot of nice people here. Normally there

:03:14.:03:17.

would be 30, 40 people here and today there is up to 300. There are

benefits. It is cold. I have been known to come in the snow. All of

3`1. The Rams are 11 points clear of seventh, with four games to go.

:03:49.:03:51.

Forest's 5`2 defeat at QPR means it's 12 games without a win for

:03:52.:03:55.

them. In League One, a 4`2 win for Notts County over Port Vale sees the

:03:56.:03:59.

Magpies out of the relegation zone. And in League Two, Mansfield beat

:04:00.:04:01.

Rochdale 3`0. Rugby and Leicester Tigers beat

satellite sequence, because it shows what has been going on over the last

few hours. This band of cloud has been slipping south across England

significance. Quite the story across the north of Scotland . And some

fairly frequent showers to the north and west of Scotland. That is it by

sunshine, although around some of the hills, there might be missed
