And now the news for the East Midlands. I'm Dominic Heale. Good

:00:13.:00:17.

evening. First tonight, social services bosses are to give a

:00:18.:00:20.

failing care home more time to improve after meeting residents'

:00:21.:00:25.

families. They haven't paid for new people to go there since December

:00:26.:00:31.

after serious concerns were raised. And problems were still evident at

:00:32.:00:34.

the Eton Park Care Centre at Cotgrave in Nottinghamshire during

:00:35.:00:37.

the latest inspection by the Care Quality Commission. Our health

:00:38.:00:47.

correspondent Rob Sissons reports. This is her in the war. To either so

:00:48.:00:53.

she has always been close to her aunt. She says she was doing much

:00:54.:01:00.

better before going into care. She picked the home Eton Park Care

:01:01.:01:07.

Centre in a rush and soon regretted it. Not happy about the room, the

:01:08.:01:13.

cleanliness. She got so depressed she would not get out of bed and

:01:14.:01:18.

they had to bring her ray commode. It did not get emptied regularly

:01:19.:01:25.

enough. It's not. `` they brought her a commode. A lot of failures

:01:26.:01:30.

were found by the CQC. Residents did not get enough nutrition and were

:01:31.:01:36.

not always protected from the risk of abuse. The home said it was

:01:37.:01:40.

continuing to make improvements and has invested half ?1 million

:01:41.:01:46.

recently. Many of the problems have been caused by management and staff

:01:47.:01:50.

issues and they have now been fully addressed. We are continuing to work

:01:51.:01:54.

hand`in`hand with the Care Quality Commission and the council to

:01:55.:01:59.

improve the facility. Irene is now in hospital. Her niece does not want

:02:00.:02:06.

her back in a care home. This is her room. She lived with us for six

:02:07.:02:11.

months. This is her ensuite. You want her to come back as you might I

:02:12.:02:17.

do. Where she is going to be loved and cared for. `` you definitely

:02:18.:02:22.

want her to come back? The council is giving the home more time to sort

:02:23.:02:28.

things out. A meeting was called to night to try to reassure residents

:02:29.:02:34.

that the council and the CQC is on the home's case. They have been

:02:35.:02:37.

given more time to put things right. The authority says they have

:02:38.:02:41.

seen improvements already but the challenge will be sustaining them.

:02:42.:02:46.

The family of a Nottingham soldier killed on a training exercise have

:02:47.:02:50.

described him as an amazing son, brother, boyfriend and expectant

:02:51.:02:51.

father. 20`year`old Cameron Laing was hit by

:02:52.:02:55.

a trailer which was part of a convoy heading towards Dartmoor. He

:02:56.:03:04.

suffered head and chest injuries. He was serving with a Royal Logistic

:03:05.:03:07.

Corps regiment based in Rutland. Police are still investigating what

:03:08.:03:08.

happened. The mother of Madeleine McCann is

:03:09.:03:12.

supporting a new campaign to help find missing children. Kate McCann

:03:13.:03:14.

from Rothley has been publicising the child rescue alert system which

:03:15.:03:18.

is already used in parts of America and Europe. It comes as the McCanns

:03:19.:03:22.

approach the seventh anniversary of the disappearance of their

:03:23.:03:24.

three`year`old daughter from a holiday resort in Portugal.

:03:25.:03:29.

The UKIP leader Nigel Farage called off a planned walkabout in

:03:30.:03:32.

Nottingham this lunchtime after a protestor hit him with an egg. His

:03:33.:03:39.

visit came a day after he refused to stand in the forthcoming by`

:03:40.:03:42.

election at Newark which it's been announced will take place on fifth

:03:43.:03:48.

June. Our political editor John Hess can tell us more. It is the moment

:03:49.:04:08.

every politician drags. `` dreamt. They are redundant. A lot of people

:04:09.:04:15.

have been hoodwinked into thinking they agree with their policies when

:04:16.:04:19.

they do not. Inside this pub, Nigel Farage brushed up. The worry is it

:04:20.:04:29.

is preventing normal democracy. On the day the Newark by`election was

:04:30.:04:33.

confirmed, no regrets about not standing. In the Commons, the

:04:34.:04:38.

government's Chief Whip officially tells MPs Patrick Mercer is no

:04:39.:04:45.

longer the MP for Newark. The speaker formally kick`starts the

:04:46.:04:48.

by`election campaign. The county constituency of Newark... Polling

:04:49.:04:54.

day, Thursday, the 5th of June. The disgrace of the former MP was

:04:55.:04:59.

revealed today in the committee report that investigated his

:05:00.:05:02.

conduct. He had said he deliberately evaded Commons rules on registering

:05:03.:05:07.

money received for consultancy services. The investigation also

:05:08.:05:10.

condemned him for repeatedly denigrating fellow MPs and using

:05:11.:05:14.

racially offensive language. He had also brought the house into

:05:15.:05:21.

disrepute by involving other MPs. That was because he set up an

:05:22.:05:24.

all`party parliamentary group on behalf of a paying client being

:05:25.:05:30.

represented unknown to him by undercover reporters. Back in

:05:31.:05:33.

Nottingham, this was the closest Nigel Farage came to the Newark

:05:34.:05:37.

constituency. One of the reasons he gave for not standing was that he

:05:38.:05:40.

did not know the East Midlands particular well. He will certainly

:05:41.:05:45.

remember his visit to Nottingham now. That is certainly true! I have

:05:46.:05:51.

only been to Newark once. It was supposed to be a campaign visit for

:05:52.:05:54.

the European elections, but Newark and an egg derailed all of that.

:05:55.:06:02.

Finally, if you're on the road early tomorrow for the morning commute,

:06:03.:06:05.

good luck. It turns out the East Midlands is one of the worst places

:06:06.:06:08.

in Britain for roadworks. According to a new survey, Leicestershire's

:06:09.:06:11.

got the second highest number in the country with more than 1,200 road

:06:12.:06:15.

improvement schemes on the go. Derby was third with 930 and Nottingham

:06:16.:06:18.

fifth with almost 600. 91 UK councils provided information, with

:06:19.:06:20.

unfinished projects now totalling around 10,000.

:06:21.:06:26.

That seems a lot. Now your weather. You may have been caught out in one

:06:27.:06:38.

of the showers today. You will be pleased to hear it looks like

:06:39.:06:43.

tomorrow will be largely dry, as will the bank holiday weekend.

:06:44.:06:48.

Tomorrow feeling colder. Showers dying out tonight. Largely dry

:06:49.:06:53.

throughout the night. A lot of cloud staying with us. The cloud could be

:06:54.:06:59.

thick enough for like terrain. A little bit cooler tonight. `` light

:07:00.:07:08.

rain. We are hopeful in the morning that the rain will sink to the south

:07:09.:07:13.

and behind it it is drier and brighter in the afternoon with long

:07:14.:07:17.

spells of sunshine. However, with the north`easterly breeze, it is

:07:18.:07:21.

feeling colder. Much fresher with a high of just 11 degrees. High

:07:22.:07:24.

pressure is in charge Saturday and for the rest of the bank holiday

:07:25.:07:29.

weekend. Not looking too bad. Here is your outlook for the next

:07:30.:07:31.

on that at the moment, that there will be some sunshine around. More

:07:32.:07:40.

on that in the national forecast. Our weather is taking a turn for the

:07:41.:07:45.

colder. You would be forgiven for thinking that does not bode well for

:07:46.:07:50.

the Bank Holiday Weekend. But as we go through the weekend, temperatures

:07:51.:07:53.

will be performing a U-turn, and recovering, as we will see. England

:07:54.:07:57.

and Wales has borne the brunt of some heavy

:07:58.:07:58.
