And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. There's

:00:15.:00:21.

division tonight over a campaign to stop young men travelling to Syria

:00:22.:00:25.

to fight in the civil war. Police are urging Muslim men to st`y away.

:00:26.:00:29.

They're concerned those voltnteering may end up being radicalised. But a

:00:30.:00:32.

Leicester MP who deals with terrorist policing says he doesn't

:00:33.:00:35.

think the campaign will work. Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy

:00:36.:00:45.

Ball, reports. Maybe we can prevent many casualties. And appeal to move

:00:46.:00:53.

to use their powers of perstasion to stop Muslim men from joining a civil

:00:54.:00:59.

war happening thousands of liles away. Youngsters are going out

:01:00.:01:05.

there, lots of Britons are being killed and injured. Going there to

:01:06.:01:14.

fight is not an option, it hs just going to add to the problems there

:01:15.:01:19.

rather than making anything better. The brutal conflict has alrdady cost

:01:20.:01:26.

thousands of lives. Many fedl they are under a religious or moral

:01:27.:01:35.

obligation to fight. Today, the police asked for help and thp`offs

:01:36.:01:40.

about people who might want to travel to Syria for the war. One MP

:01:41.:01:50.

says this strategy will not work. Families do not know it is

:01:51.:01:54.

happening, the people you nded to go to our peer groups and soci`l media.

:01:55.:02:01.

But the campaign has been stpported by two Muslim charities who are

:02:02.:02:09.

sending vital aid to Syria. The say that is the most effective way to

:02:10.:02:17.

help in the Civil War. Sometimes people can get misused without

:02:18.:02:22.

knowing. There are many othdr ways to help. It is about spreadhng the

:02:23.:02:26.

message through whole communities using people power and they are

:02:27.:02:30.

hoping it can save lives. Phctures of the blaze in which a mother and

:02:31.:02:35.

her three children died havd been shown to a murder jury. Thex were

:02:36.:02:39.

told it was started deliber`tely by a gang of men trying to avenge the

:02:40.:02:43.

death of their friend but that they targeted the wrong house. S`rah

:02:44.:02:49.

Teale reports. The house in Leicester was set alight in the

:02:50.:02:55.

early hours of September 13 last year. The mum and her three teenaged

:02:56.:03:02.

children all died. Their father and husband, a doctor who was in Dublin

:03:03.:03:08.

at the time, sat in court w`tching the CCTV being played to thd Judy

:03:09.:03:15.

today. The footage first shows two cars driving past the house with

:03:16.:03:21.

their headlights switched off. The vehicles parked around the corner

:03:22.:03:26.

and eight figures walk back towards the house. Then flames can clearly

:03:27.:03:31.

be seen flickering at the f`mily home as the fire takes hold. The

:03:32.:03:38.

figures are then spotted running from the scene. The prosecutor

:03:39.:03:43.

described how a neighbour hdard panicking noises coming frol the

:03:44.:03:49.

house, crying noises and calls for help. It is alleged seven mdn and a

:03:50.:03:55.

youth were responsible. It was revenge for the murder of a

:03:56.:03:59.

20`year`old who had been st`bbed nearby but the gang had targeted the

:04:00.:04:05.

wrong house. The Julie was then shown CCTV captured after the fire

:04:06.:04:11.

of a man who had got out of the car, taken something from the boot,

:04:12.:04:18.

and disposed of it in a hedge. Forensic teams later found ` petrol

:04:19.:04:25.

can. DNA from another defendant was found on a red cigarette lighter

:04:26.:04:30.

which pleas officers discovdred in rubble outside the house. The men

:04:31.:04:37.

charge all counts `` deny all kinds of marker and the trial continues.

:04:38.:04:52.

`` deny all counts of murder. Now in a month's time we'll get thd chance

:04:53.:04:57.

to vote for the five MEPs who will represent the East Midlands in the

:04:58.:05:00.

European Parliament. Nine p`rty s are standing and if you think it's

:05:01.:05:03.

not important then just consider that these people oversee the EU's

:05:04.:05:06.

annual budget of ?720 billion. Here's our Political Editor, John

:05:07.:05:10.

Hess. It is hard to believe this cafe is in the heart of Leicester.

:05:11.:05:14.

Its owner came to Leicester from Turkey. While he laughs Brussels he

:05:15.:05:23.

is Eurosceptic. In contrast, his assistant wants others to elbrace

:05:24.:05:31.

the EU. If it could just get nicer, friendlier, more together again I

:05:32.:05:37.

Cannes so what will these elections be about? Jobs, migration, the

:05:38.:05:42.

environment and even our melbership of the EU itself. How many buyers

:05:43.:05:52.

will take any notice? I feel that Brussels rules loves but I do not

:05:53.:05:57.

think we can make a difference by voting. We want to come out of the

:05:58.:06:05.

EU. Now, we don't, because then we will lose out of the import /export

:06:06.:06:17.

business. The region's MEPs are these people. The system of voting

:06:18.:06:32.

is different. If more than one third of ours actually vote that will be

:06:33.:06:38.

regarded as a success. We are back with the lunchtime update tomorrow

:06:39.:06:44.

now the weather. We have had a pleasant spring day today btt it is

:06:45.:06:49.

all change for tomorrow as rain is set to arrive from the south. We

:06:50.:06:56.

have clear skies for most at the moment and any showers will die out.

:06:57.:07:01.

Cloud will roll in from the North Sea. The cloud will hold

:07:02.:07:08.

temperatures up. A cloudy and misty start to Friday but starting dry,

:07:09.:07:15.

some brightness through the morning. We will push in from the Sotth

:07:16.:07:21.

during the afternoon and thd rain will become intense as the `fternoon

:07:22.:07:25.

progresses then there is thd potential of Thunder late afternoon

:07:26.:07:31.

and into the evening. Now the outlook and after

:07:32.:07:32.

weekend, you can see what is going on. Sunday might be brighter. Now

:07:33.:07:38.

over to Louise Lear for the national weather.

:07:39.:07:42.

Good evening. Today has been a day of sunny spells and a few scattered

:07:43.:07:45.

showers, but where we see the sunshine, we have also seen some

:07:46.:07:49.

warmth, with temperatures in the high teens. A slightly disappointing

:07:50.:07:53.

story across the far north-east of Scotland. We keep that easterly feed

:07:54.:08:01.

through the night to night, but looking out into the Atlantic, we

:08:02.:08:04.

also start to pick up the south-westerly circulate in, and

:08:05.:08:07.

area of low pressure bringing in some blustery winds for the start of

:08:08.:08:13.

the weekend. Tonight it stays mostly dry, with some fog around. And we

:08:14.:08:20.

pick up the risk of a few showers in the far south-east. Clearer skies at

:08:21.:08:26.

the the South West, and cloudy, murky start our day tomorrow the

:08:27.:08:31.

showers gather in strength and then start to march north and
