to you. There's more throughout the evening on the BBC News Channel. I'm

:00:00.:00:00.

back with With your news now for the East

:00:00.:00:17.

Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. An Italian judge will begin considering

:00:18.:00:19.

tomorrow whether an investigation into the death of a young

:00:20.:00:22.

Nottinghamshire mother should be reopened. Claire Martin's family say

:00:23.:00:27.

they cannot accept a verdict of suicide for their daughter ` who

:00:28.:00:30.

died two years ago from multiple stab wounds to the neck. Carol Hinds

:00:31.:00:35.

reports. More than two years on from the

:00:36.:00:39.

death of their daughter Claire, her parents from Sutton in Ashfield

:00:40.:00:41.

still have many unanswered questions about how she died. I would like to

:00:42.:00:48.

know the official time of death that my daughter died, the time that she

:00:49.:00:55.

was first discovered. The time that the paramedics were actually called.

:00:56.:01:01.

Who identified my daughter? Why we weren't involved or told until

:01:02.:01:11.

3:30pm the following day? She was found in March 2012 with 24 stab

:01:12.:01:15.

wounds to her neck at the home near Naples that she shared with her

:01:16.:01:20.

partner and her son. A local magistrate declared her death

:01:21.:01:23.

suicide and closed the case. Tomorrow, a judge in Italy will

:01:24.:01:26.

decide whether to reopen the investigation. We hope that the

:01:27.:01:33.

judge actually reads the paper. It is quite a lengthy document. And

:01:34.:01:37.

then agrees to the case not being closed. For every question, there

:01:38.:01:41.

are two, maybe three different answers and there should only be

:01:42.:01:49.

one. One answer to each question. This weekend, they took a break from

:01:50.:01:52.

the paperwork to hold their first fundraiser. It was a night of comedy

:01:53.:01:57.

and music. Two of Claire 's favourite pastimes.

:01:58.:02:04.

You'll hear more from the Martins, and their story, on BBC Radio

:02:05.:02:09.

Nottingham's Breakfast tomorrow morning.

:02:10.:02:12.

Police have described as "cowardly" two men who attacked a pregnant

:02:13.:02:16.

shop`worker with a baseball bat. The woman, who's 36 weeks pregnant, was

:02:17.:02:19.

working at the Johal General Store on Park Street in Kirkby in Ashfield

:02:20.:02:24.

on Friday night when it happened. She told us she was hit in the

:02:25.:02:28.

stomach, while trying to block their bat with her arms. The men fled with

:02:29.:02:34.

nothing. She's unharmed, but shaken. Around 30 people have been moved

:02:35.:02:38.

from their homes, after a fire on a modern retirement village in

:02:39.:02:41.

Nottinghamshire. It broke out within the Lark Hill complex in Clifton

:02:42.:02:46.

this afternoon. More than four hundred people live on the site

:02:47.:02:49.

within its flats and bungalows. It was quickly brought under control.

:02:50.:02:52.

There'll be no changes to school holiday patterns in Leicestershire.

:02:53.:02:56.

It's after 86% of people who responded to a County Council survey

:02:57.:03:00.

voted to keep the status quo. From September 2015, all state schools in

:03:01.:03:04.

England will be able to decide their own term dates.

:03:05.:03:07.

Football and a good weekend for three of our teams. Leicester, Derby

:03:08.:03:12.

and Notts County all securing wins. Kirsty Edwards rounds up the action.

:03:13.:03:16.

Not content with the title, Leicester City want to break the 100

:03:17.:03:19.

point barrier and they're almost there after Gary Taylor Fletcher saw

:03:20.:03:23.

them take the lead at Huddersfield. The job was finished off by captain

:03:24.:03:27.

Wes Morgan. Derby County have secured third place despite falling

:03:28.:03:31.

behind to Watford. Jeff Hendrick got them back on level terms. They then

:03:32.:03:35.

edged ahead, this time through Craig Forsyth. Watford had had a man sent

:03:36.:03:39.

off and scored an equaliser before Jeff Hendrick had his second of the

:03:40.:03:44.

day. A cracking strike too. And Chris Martin ensured a fifth

:03:45.:03:48.

straight win for the Rams. No chance of Nottingham Forest joining Derby

:03:49.:03:51.

in the play`offs, there were already 2`0 down when Greg Halford headed

:03:52.:03:55.

in. Any chances were dashed when Yara gave away a penalty.

:03:56.:03:58.

Bournemouth scored it and added another later on to see Forest go

:03:59.:04:04.

down 4`1. Notts County are in with a great chance of escaping relegation.

:04:05.:04:07.

Alan Sheehan with their opener against Swindon. The visitors had

:04:08.:04:12.

two men sent off late on for an off the ball incident and the resulting

:04:13.:04:15.

fracas. When the Swindon goalkeeper went up front corner, Nott

:04:16.:04:18.

capitalised on an empty net with Calum MacGregor's goal making sure

:04:19.:04:23.

of a vital three points. I'm really proud of them. Nothing is achieved

:04:24.:04:28.

yet. I have been in too many last day dramas to feel that everything

:04:29.:04:32.

is done and dusted by now. It definitely isn't. It will go down to

:04:33.:04:37.

the very last day. A disappointing day for Mansfield Town. A 3`1 defeat

:04:38.:04:46.

to Torquay. Notts County ladies beat Portsmouth

:04:47.:04:50.

Ladies two nil in the sixth round of the Women's FA Cup, seeing them

:04:51.:04:53.

through to the semifinal. And in the women's Premier League, Forest

:04:54.:04:58.

Ladies drew one all at Sheffield. In the weekend's basketball, Leicester

:04:59.:05:01.

Riders are through to the semi final of the play`offs. They beat Cheshire

:05:02.:05:05.

by 77 points to 56 in the second leg of the quarterfinal. So they won by

:05:06.:05:09.

33 points on aggregate. Let's check the weather now, Mel has your

:05:10.:05:11.

forecast. Good evening, some places have

:05:12.:05:20.

remained dry and bright with one or two showers around, but they will

:05:21.:05:24.

fade as the night goes on. Increasing cloud. Some shells would

:05:25.:05:27.

be heavy this evening before they clear. One or two dotted around

:05:28.:05:33.

before the early hours of the morning. In most places dry with

:05:34.:05:39.

increasing cloud. Not a cold night with low`temperature is of a turn

:05:40.:05:45.

nine Celsius. Grade to start on Monday, that allows them for some

:05:46.:05:48.

bright and sunny spells. 12 showers in southern parts but a bridge is

:05:49.:05:53.

not too bad and the wind will be quite light.

:05:54.:05:56.

We're back later this evening at 22:15.

:05:57.:06:10.

Good evening. After an unsettled weekend, the same culprit will be

:06:11.:06:16.

staying with us through the early part of the new week. No pressure is

:06:17.:06:21.

set to continue producing a fair number of showers across England and

:06:22.:06:25.

Wales. Still some hefty ones to come through this evening, particularly

:06:26.:06:30.

across the Midlands, South Wales and south-west England. Rain will spread

:06:31.:06:35.

from the south-west of Scotland into Northern Ireland by dawn. A mild

:06:36.:06:42.

enough night. Monday, after a gloomy start for many of us, the cloud and

:06:43.:06:51.

Risley rain across Northern Ireland. A reasonably dry start

:06:52.:06:58.

across England and Wales but come the afternoon, that low-pressure

:06:59.:07:01.

centre is still close by and it looks like it will start generating

:07:02.:07:05.

some pretty hefty thundery showers. A few for south Wales, certainly

:07:06.:07:09.

across southern England and into East Anglia. Some areas will miss

:07:10.:07:16.
