And now the news for the East Midlands.
Five years of work and five years of fundraising, but tonight celebration
for research teams and their supporters trying to discovdr more
about breast cancer. They ddscribe it as putting together one of the
world's most complicated jigsaws. Today another piece was put in
place. This could open the door to new
treatments, maybe even one day a vaccine. For the first time, the
role of a gene, it's called Hage, has been uncovered. This gene is
part of a bigger jigsaw. Thhs gene predicts the prognosis for `
patient. This gene is assochated with how fast breast cancer cells
grow. 2,000 breast tumour s`mples from Nottingham City Hospit`l were
analysed. The gene affects 00% of all breast cancers. It is involved
in an aggressive form of thd disease. But it tends to be more
responsive to chemotherapy than some others. This painstaking work has
taken five years. It has involved two universities in Nottingham.
Paying for the research involves an army of fundraisers. Jill stpported
the charity. Her breast cancer is incurable. We need more personalised
care for ladies so they are not under so much stress. Each
individual will get their own certain type of treatment. This
cancer specialist sees the latest findings as promising. He h`s
already seen cancer survival rates double over ten years. We h`ve now
reached a plateau. The key hs to personalise the treatment for each
individual with breast cancdr. Experts are now looking at ways of
taking this forward. Detectives investigating thd
disappearance of Bogdan Nawrocki in Nottingham have tonight charged a
man with murder. 22`year`old Bogdan was last seen in Radford in January.
A 27`year`old man from Sneinton will appear before magistrates in the
city tomorrow. Another man, arrested on suspicion of murder, has been
bailed pending further enquhries. A man whose lies forced a Ldicester
pub to shut has been spared jail. Joshua Bonehill`Pain from Ydovil in
Somerset claimed that the Globe had banned British armed forces. The
story wasn't true, but quickly spread on social media. Soon, both
staff and the premises were being threatened.
Hired security for extra protection. In August last year, staff `t this
pub in Leicester began to bd abused, even given death threats ovdr the
phone. At first they were confused, but then they found they were the
victim of an internet hoax. A story on this website called the Daily
Bale claimed the Globe pub had barred members of the British Armed
Forces for fear of offending members of the Islamic community. It was all
lies, made up by this man, Joshua Bonehill`Pain. Describing hhmself as
a rising star of the British far right, he arrived at court today in
a Union Flag style tie, aftdr pleading guilty to making the hoax.
In court today, magistrates heard that the pub had to hire security
staff, it had to send some staff home for their own safety, `nd then
eventually had to temporarily close. Some of the phone calls thex were
getting were threatening to fire`bomb the pub, and thre`tening
to send round groups of people to beat up the staff. The backlash
meant lost customers, lost loney and a damaged reputation. Speakhng at
the time, the manager here said there was a genuine fear th`t staff
could be targeted. We had to get our staff home at night in taxis and
generally keep customers aw`re of what was going on, through notices
to inform them it was nonsense. In court today, Bonehill`Pain, now 21,
was given 180 hours of unpahd work. He will spend two years on
probation. Any similar offences in that time could see him put behind
bars. Rough sleepers are twice as likely
to visit A and E and ten tiles more likely to suffer from TB th`n the
rest of us ` that's just sole of the findings of a new survey by
charities in Nottinghamshird. Our chief news reporter has been reading
the study. The two homeless charities which
drew up the report say it is one of the biggest local studies of its
kind. 350 interviews were c`rried out across Nottinghamshire. Keith is
now in a Framework hostel after more than two years living on thd streets
which left him with pneumonha and brittle bones. If you're re`lly
poorly, you have to go to hospital. There is no doctor will havd you
because you are of no fixed abode. I went from 11 stone down to five and
a half. Because you are not eating properly. You don't know whdre your
next meal will come from. You are always cold. It is not very nice.
The findings were presented to an invited audience. They were told
that of the 74% who reported mental health symptoms, only 31% h`d a
diagnosis. Homeless people `re ten times more likely to contract TB.
More than a quarter had to tse A over the last six months because of
the difficulty in registering with a GP. The report calls for thd needs
of the homeless to be included when health care services are
commissioned. The commissioners need to take note of the different
voices, the different needs. And not think that all people are the same.
People have different needs. But with Framework fitting a cut of
almost ?3 million in its cotnty council grant, the charity says it
will be tough just maintainhng its existing services.
I'll have more for you across the weekend, but for now it's goodbye
from me. And with your weekdnd weather, here's Anna.

are expecting more this weekend There will also be some find and dry
weather and a little spring sunshine. The rain will gradually
move northwards over the next few hours. Perhaps heavy for a time
before clearing. We could sde some fog forming, particularly over
higher ground. It will be mhld. The rain will move north and east

Good evening. A bit of a disappointing day. A lot of cloud
around and we saw showery outbreaks of rain. Courtesy of this
continental plume which arrived during the early hours and continues
to drift further north. Into the weekend, this area of low pressure
will influence our weather. It is already arriving bringing gusts of
wind is to the Isles of Scilly and the south-west. Further north, and
easterly feed are dragging more cloud, misty conditions and poor
visibility with light rain. Overnight lows of eight to 10
degrees. A band of persistent rain through Northern Ireland moving out
of Wales and into the North of England and the south-east means a
great, miserable start to Saturday. But a clearance with sunny spells
coming through. All the time that area of low pressure to the
south-west will keep feeding in plenty of showers here and strong
winds as well. I miserable afternoon in prospect. Head
