Wollaston, the MP who first brought to the attention of parliamentary

:00:00.:00:15.

First tonight, a nine`year`old boy is in a critical condition after he

:00:16.:00:22.

fell from a moving coach. It was travelling back to Stamford in

:00:23.:00:24.

Lincolnshire from a rugby tournament when the accident happened.

:00:25.:00:42.

The nine`year`old fell from the entrance door halfway along the

:00:43.:00:47.

coach, suffering severe head and leg injuries. Police confirmed they were

:00:48.:00:51.

20 children and ten adults on`board. Nobody else was injured.

:00:52.:00:56.

The boy 's parents where in the party, on their way home from

:00:57.:01:04.

playing in a rugby tournament. A police investigation is now underway

:01:05.:01:10.

into the door came open. There were some queueing inside the coach from

:01:11.:01:17.

children waiting to use the toilet. Somehow the door has come open. Any

:01:18.:01:23.

idea how this has happened? At this time, no. The boy was taken to

:01:24.:01:29.

hospital in King's Lynn and he has since been transferred to Cambridge.

:01:30.:01:36.

Their parents in the coach, they were devastated last night. They

:01:37.:01:43.

really looked visibly shocked and disturbed and it was a novel

:01:44.:01:46.

experience for them. The coach company have not commented but the

:01:47.:01:51.

Confederation of passenger transport, the body that represents

:01:52.:01:54.

coach operators says they have a fund safety record. We're not sure

:01:55.:01:59.

what has happened on this journey yesterday. Before a driver takes any

:02:00.:02:05.

vehicle out of the depot into service, a number of checks are

:02:06.:02:11.

undertaken. A look at the tyres, the safety features, the seat belt and

:02:12.:02:14.

the seats, and also the emergency doors. Police have appealed for any

:02:15.:02:20.

witnesses to contact their investigation team without delay.

:02:21.:02:26.

Millions of pounds are to be spent offering a more user`friendly

:02:27.:02:30.

service at GP's surgeries. It could mean some of them are open seven

:02:31.:02:35.

days a week and for longer hours. It is part of a government programme

:02:36.:02:38.

designed to make doctors more accessible to patients but the money

:02:39.:02:48.

is only available for a year. Just how easy do you find it to get

:02:49.:02:56.

to see your doctor? Very difficult. You can ring up for an appointment

:02:57.:02:58.

and you then have to wait three weeks. You have to wait weeks for an

:02:59.:03:05.

appointment. That may change for up to 1 million patients across

:03:06.:03:07.

Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for one pilot year. The doctors will

:03:08.:03:14.

have access to a new ?5.2 million fund so their patients will have

:03:15.:03:18.

better access to them. For many years we just expected to people to

:03:19.:03:24.

come along in the morning and that is not always convenient for

:03:25.:03:27.

patients to do that, so I'm looking forward to seeing what successes or

:03:28.:03:33.

failures they have so we can plan accordingly. What sort of thing

:03:34.:03:37.

might you see if your GP surgery is taking part? Longer opening hours

:03:38.:03:44.

possibly from 8am until 8pm, and opening at weekend. Consultations by

:03:45.:03:51.

e`mail and even video. That is a very good idea, especially if you

:03:52.:03:57.

are working, you need to be able to access it at all sorts of times.

:03:58.:04:01.

When GP says there are not enough doctors to make seven`day working

:04:02.:04:08.

feasible long`term. Our concern is that man is being stalked and we

:04:09.:04:11.

have not got a hope in hell of being able to meet and then patients get

:04:12.:04:19.

frustrated. It is a relationship that will change with those taking

:04:20.:04:22.

part of the next year. It is impossible to know what the outcome

:04:23.:04:25.

will be. He wanted a happy ever after and now

:04:26.:04:30.

he has got it. Ady is a young boy, one of hundreds of children in care,

:04:31.:04:35.

looking for a loving family. Three years after we first featured him on

:04:36.:04:38.

East Midlands Today, he has got his wish and has started a new life with

:04:39.:04:48.

new parents. Like most ten`year`olds, Ady love

:04:49.:04:53.

playing on his computer at home but for him, having parents and a place

:04:54.:04:59.

to call home is new. I last met him three years ago, living in a

:05:00.:05:02.

children's home. Social services took the unusual step of allowing

:05:03.:05:06.

him to be on television in the hope of finding him in the family. It

:05:07.:05:10.

worked. Step forward Leanne and Barney who are now a very proud mum

:05:11.:05:17.

and dad. I know people look at him and see lots of notes but we did not

:05:18.:05:25.

ever really see that. He is so affectionate that you cannot help

:05:26.:05:31.

fall in love with him. It has taken the couple long time to be able to

:05:32.:05:35.

foster Ady. In the future, they hope to adopt him. It has taken us a year

:05:36.:05:41.

for him to move in. It has been a long journey. He has been getting to

:05:42.:05:50.

know as a gradual basis. Since moving in with them, Ady has

:05:51.:05:56.

thrived. Before we came here, on a daily basis he was walking maybe 30

:05:57.:06:02.

steps. Two weeks ago, he walked a mile for Sport Relief. He has had

:06:03.:06:08.

his feeding tube removed and he's doing it himself. It is great.

:06:09.:06:13.

Everyone speaks of what we are doing for him at for us, it is what he

:06:14.:06:20.

does for us. He has been brilliant. Sadly, there are more children like

:06:21.:06:24.

Ady who need permanent homes, homes that meet such a difference. I would

:06:25.:06:29.

not change him for the world at all. It does not matter what needs he

:06:30.:06:34.

has, I would not change him for the world. You are staying forever,

:06:35.:06:40.

Anju? That's all for now. The weather is

:06:41.:06:50.

next. High`pressure is in charge so it

:06:51.:06:53.

will be staying dry. Plenty of sunshine until Thursday. We have

:06:54.:07:00.

very indie conditions at the moment. The winds were used to night in the

:07:01.:07:04.

cloud will continue to not a way as well and that means it is quite cold

:07:05.:07:07.

tonight with temperatures down to for degrees. A cold start tomorrow

:07:08.:07:14.

but a beautiful sunny start to the day. Most of us holding onto that

:07:15.:07:23.

sunshine with highs of around 14 degrees. That's it from us, I will

:07:24.:07:30.

leave you with a look at the outlook.

:07:31.:07:33.

will be fresher than today. 12 degrees along the vestry and 16 in

:07:34.:07:37.

London. More sunshine for Wednesday and clouding over towards the end of

:07:38.:07:42.

the week. Your regional forecast will have offered you another fine

:07:43.:07:44.

day tomorrow. That is the story nationwide. High

:07:45.:07:51.

pressure is plonked on top of us. This evening it has been turning

:07:52.:07:55.

quite chilly quite quickly and it will be cold for

:07:56.:07:57.
