tomorrow. That's

:00:00.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:18.

A two`year`old girl who's had cancer since she was 11 months old ` is

:00:19.:00:22.

back home in Nottingham after life`saving treatment in America. We

:00:23.:00:26.

last told you about Bethany Topley in February before her family flew

:00:27.:00:31.

out. Now, Tom Brown's been catching up with their progress. A

:00:32.:00:38.

well`deserved Easter treat as two`year`old Bethany enjoys life

:00:39.:00:45.

back home after 12 weeks of specialist radiotherapy in America.

:00:46.:00:50.

She was due to have 30 sessions but responded so well, she finished

:00:51.:00:56.

after 23. That was brilliant news to find out that we could come home

:00:57.:00:59.

early and see the family because they were really missing the

:01:00.:01:04.

grandparents and great grandparents. Just to know the treatment was

:01:05.:01:08.

working was brilliant news. We're very proud of she coped with it. She

:01:09.:01:17.

is braver than I could be. We last saw Bethany in February, a few days

:01:18.:01:21.

before she had left. She had stayed in the UK, it could have left

:01:22.:01:25.

needing facial reconstruction and blind in one eye, but after being

:01:26.:01:29.

funded by the NHS, she was able to have the pioneering treatment

:01:30.:01:34.

abroad. We're so grateful for the NHS for us to have that chance, an

:01:35.:01:44.

extra chance of life as such. She's as good as new? Yes. How does that

:01:45.:01:58.

make you feel? Happy! The annual Easter day service at

:01:59.:02:01.

Leicester Cathedral was broadcast to around a million people this year.

:02:02.:02:09.

After months of planning and a long day of rehearsals yesterday, the

:02:10.:02:13.

multicultural service was broadcast live on BBC One this morning. New

:02:14.:02:18.

Christians were baptised and confirmed, before 500 worshippers

:02:19.:02:20.

filled the Cathedral for the service. I think lots of people

:02:21.:02:31.

worked extremely hard, preparing the music, rehearsing the whole service,

:02:32.:02:34.

putting the whole thing together and making sure it all came together in

:02:35.:02:39.

one hour exactly, so we could go from here to Rome and to the Pope is

:02:40.:02:44.

in the world. So Lester was the warm up act for the Pope, and that was

:02:45.:02:52.

very special. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought it was really, really

:02:53.:02:58.

inspirational. I think it reflected some of the variety of the cultures

:02:59.:03:04.

within Leicester. We have seen some of the rehearsals, it was all very

:03:05.:03:07.

professional, lovely, nice service. Look out for more on this on our

:03:08.:03:15.

Facebook page. To sport, and it's been a good

:03:16.:03:18.

Easter for our Championship footballers with wins for all three

:03:19.:03:21.

sides. Angela Rafferty starts her round up of the bank holiday games

:03:22.:03:24.

with Derby County's Good Friday action.

:03:25.:03:30.

Derby County have done it. Their pace in the `` place in the

:03:31.:03:36.

play`offs is guaranteed. They didn't have the best start. But nerves

:03:37.:03:43.

settled, and they took the lead, George Thorne with his first for the

:03:44.:03:47.

club. Chris Martin made it 2`0, victory was no more than they

:03:48.:03:52.

deserved. Six months ago, we wouldn't have dreamt of being in

:03:53.:03:55.

this position but now we are there, we have to plan for it. Leicester

:03:56.:03:59.

City are on the brink of bagging the title thanked to do this,

:04:00.:04:03.

record`breaking 28th win of the season. All they can do is carry on

:04:04.:04:14.

winning in style. It's nice to be able to produce a season in which we

:04:15.:04:17.

can actually say that we have fulfilled our potential. Forest's

:04:18.:04:24.

win over Birmingham, their first in 13. They are within three points of

:04:25.:04:29.

the play`offs. A blow for Notts County, who went behind a battled

:04:30.:04:35.

back. Sloppy defending cost them dear. Back in the relegation zone.

:04:36.:04:39.

Mansfield were hoping for five wins in a row but Accrington had other

:04:40.:04:46.

ideas. A great start but an equaliser leaves their play`off

:04:47.:04:48.

hopes hanging by a thread. Nottinghamshire's Lee Westwood has

:04:49.:05:00.

won golf's Malaysian Open. Westwood finished at eighteen under for the

:05:01.:05:03.

tournament, seven clear of those in second. It's his 41st tour victory.

:05:04.:05:09.

Let's check the weather now for the rest of the Easter weekend.

:05:10.:05:14.

Happy Easter. Look out for some rain the next few hours. Some heavy

:05:15.:05:22.

pollsters will track their way through parts of Leicestershire and

:05:23.:05:28.

into Derbyshire as well. It is largely dry in the early hours of

:05:29.:05:31.

bank on a day Monday, we're in for a very mild night. `` bank holiday

:05:32.:05:38.

Monday. A bit of a cloudy start but as we go into the afternoon, expect

:05:39.:05:42.

to see some brightness and maybe some blue sky and sunshine, we

:05:43.:05:46.

should stay free of showers and what is going to be a very mild and maybe

:05:47.:05:49.

even warm day. Hello. Well, it was another lovely

:05:50.:06:14.

sunny day across the north of the UK. What a difference over the

:06:15.:06:16.

south. The rain set in for the course of the afternoon. There's

:06:17.:06:20.

more of that to come. It has been getting heavy across southern

:06:21.:06:25.

England. A narrow band for London, for the south Midlands, to south

:06:26.:06:31.

Wales and the south west. Lots of water on the roads. Overnight it

:06:32.:06:33.
