:00:51.:00:59.

Richard Latham QC told the lurder trial at Nottingham Crown Court it

:01:00.:01:07.

was a botched arson attack. He said it was part of a revenge pl`n for

:01:08.:01:11.

murder just seven hours earlier of 20`year`old football coach @ntoin

:01:12.:01:15.

Akpom. He was stabbed in thd back a mile away. A gang, friends `nd

:01:16.:01:19.

associates had witnessed thd attack and they believed 19`year`old Abdul

:01:20.:01:25.

Hakim had been involved. As retribution, they had intended to

:01:26.:01:29.

set fire to the home of Hakhm's mum but she lived two doors up from the

:01:30.:01:33.

family home and they simply got the wrong house. It was a tragedy. The

:01:34.:01:42.

court heard how petrol had been poured through the letterbox of the

:01:43.:01:49.

terraced house and was ignited. The fire took hold swiftly and dngulfed

:01:50.:01:52.

the stairs, the family's only means of escape. One of the firefhghters

:01:53.:01:57.

said it was the worst domestic fire he had seen in 15 years. Despite

:01:58.:02:03.

valiant efforts from neighbours and the courage of fire crews, nothing

:02:04.:02:07.

could be done to save Shehnhla or her children. The husband and

:02:08.:02:13.

father, Dr Mohammed was in Dublin at the time where he worked as a

:02:14.:02:19.

consultant neurosurgeon. Thd jury was told he had spoken to hhs wife

:02:20.:02:22.

and use child individually just before the fire claimed thehr lives.

:02:23.:02:28.

The gang on trial, Kemo Porter, Tristan Richards, Nathaniel

:02:29.:02:30.

Mullings, Shaun Carter, Jackson Powell and Aaron Webb are all from

:02:31.:02:36.

Leicester. Akeem Jeffers is from Leeds and another youth cannot be

:02:37.:02:41.

identified. They all deny four counts of murder.

:02:42.:02:46.

Detectives investigating thd disappearance of a Polish m`n,

:02:47.:02:49.

missing now since January, have now started a murder investigathon.

:02:50.:02:53.

22`year`old Bogdan Nawrocki was last seen in Radford. Police say they've

:02:54.:02:58.

found forensic evidence which has prompted the change in the nature of

:02:59.:03:02.

their investigation. Four mdn have been arrested.

:03:03.:03:04.

Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine LcCann

:03:05.:03:07.

now know of six new incidents ` since an appeal was made last month.

:03:08.:03:12.

Madeleine from Rothley in Leicestershire vanished nearly seven

:03:13.:03:15.

years ago in Praia da Luz in Portugal's Algarve region. Police

:03:16.:03:19.

are now looking at 18 potentially`linked cases, where a

:03:20.:03:22.

lone intruder broke into villas in the region. The new cases include an

:03:23.:03:28.

assault on a 10`year`old in 200 in Praia de Luz.

:03:29.:03:32.

Next, the machine that recycles and returns patients' blood durhng major

:03:33.:03:37.

surgery. It's called the He`mosep ` and it's made using techniqtes honed

:03:38.:03:42.

in Nottinghamshire's lace industry. Jo Healey reports.

:03:43.:03:45.

Julie needed major open`heart surgery. To have it she would

:03:46.:03:50.

normally need blood transfusions but she is a Jehovah witness. Ghving

:03:51.:03:53.

blood other than her own is against her beliefs. It was important for me

:03:54.:03:59.

to have the surgery done without anybody else's blood as a

:04:00.:04:02.

transfusion into my body. That is where this machine helps. It is

:04:03.:04:06.

ground`breaking but how does it work? During any procedure, there

:04:07.:04:17.

will be an element of blood loss. You can take this blood, concentrate

:04:18.:04:21.

it in a concentrator bag, p`ss it into the blood bag and give it to

:04:22.:04:24.

the anaesthetist to transfuse back into the patient. It is extremely

:04:25.:04:28.

useful for patients because they are getting their own blood back and

:04:29.:04:31.

their own clotting factors. In the past, they would have only got red

:04:32.:04:35.

cells and the clotting cells would have been lost. This process is

:04:36.:04:40.

quicker. It could also benefit costs.

:04:41.:04:45.

Intriguingly, it has been m`de by a family firm at Kirkby in Ashfield

:04:46.:04:50.

once known for its textiles and lace. It has used their expdrtise to

:04:51.:04:54.

develop the filters and microscopic meshes needed to help patients like

:04:55.:04:57.

Julie. It is wonderful. The device itself helped my surgery, mx

:04:58.:05:05.

recuperation afterwards. Shd is one of the first patients to usd the

:05:06.:05:10.

machine. Doctors in Nottingham are part of its first ever UK trials but

:05:11.:05:14.

interest is growing across the world.

:05:15.:05:16.

A Nottinghamshire police officer wrongly convicted of rape h`s been

:05:17.:05:19.

suspended from the force despite an order to reinstate him. Trevor Gray

:05:20.:05:22.

was sacked and jailed beford clearing his name during a retrial.

:05:23.:05:26.

Earlier this month, the Polhce Appeals Tribunal ruled he could

:05:27.:05:29.

return to his job. The Forcd says he's been suspended from duty

:05:30.:05:32.

pending a gross misconduct hearing later this year.

:05:33.:05:36.

A safety warning tonight about e`cigarettes. A fire chief says some

:05:37.:05:39.

might overheat during battery charging. Kim Taylor's car was set

:05:40.:05:44.

alight by an e`cigarette. It caught fire in Leicester after she left the

:05:45.:05:49.

device charging on the back seat. Fire officers believe some

:05:50.:05:55.

e`cigarettes could pose a rhsk. Their savings to be no safety cutout
