With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:10.:00:18.

First tonight, a new report claims the closure of two pits, including

:00:19.:00:20.

Nottinghamshire's Thoresby Colliery, will cost the taxpayer up to ?75

:00:21.:00:26.

million. UK Coal wants to shut Thoresby in 18

:00:27.:00:30.

months' time, to avoid bankruptcy. More than 500 people would lose

:00:31.:00:34.

their jobs. But the TUC says the Government ought to take a

:00:35.:00:37.

longer`term view, after refusing a bail`out for the firm.

:00:38.:00:42.

It'll be terrible news for the miners, their families, their

:00:43.:00:44.

communities, but Her Majesty's Treasury will lose ?75 million in

:00:45.:00:47.

lost income tax, national insurance, there will be we reckon about ?1

:00:48.:00:50.

billion of damage to the local economy because of supply chain

:00:51.:00:54.

impacts ` frankly there is no economic case for closure. It would

:00:55.:01:04.

be completely the wrong thing to do. The RSPB is offering a reward for

:01:05.:01:07.

information leading to a conviction, over the death of a goshawk.

:01:08.:01:11.

The 11`year`old female was found with two broken legs on the

:01:12.:01:15.

Chatsworth Estate. The charity believe she was caught in an illegal

:01:16.:01:19.

spring trap. They say goshawks have been repeatedly targeted in the

:01:20.:01:22.

northern Peak District, and are now on the brink of disappearing from

:01:23.:01:26.

the area completely. Onto sport, and the final day of the

:01:27.:01:29.

league season in rugby union's Premiership.

:01:30.:01:32.

With their place in the end`of`season play`offs already

:01:33.:01:34.

confirmed, Leicester Tigers beat Saracens 31`27.

:01:35.:01:38.

Derby County are getting ready for their biggest game of the season so

:01:39.:01:40.

far. They take on Brighton tomorrow in

:01:41.:01:44.

the home leg of their play`off semifinal. The winners of the tie

:01:45.:01:49.

will head to Wembley. Derby go into the game with a 2`1 advantage from

:01:50.:01:51.

the first leg. We'll approach it like we have done

:01:52.:01:55.

for pretty much every game this season, especially at home, we've

:01:56.:01:58.

got a very good home form heading into it, and I think that'll stand

:01:59.:02:02.

us in good stead because we'll have near on 30,000 cheering us on, and

:02:03.:02:06.

hopefully they can will us to a victory.

:02:07.:02:08.

Now, if you didn't know, there's a huge singing contest this weekend.

:02:09.:02:12.

No, not Eurovision ` though more on that in a moment.

:02:13.:02:15.

No, this is about the Sweet Adeline International Contest in Nottingham.

:02:16.:02:18.

Derbyshire's Dale Diva decided to perform on the tram on the way to

:02:19.:02:22.

it. They're among more than 1,500 women taking part, for a chance to

:02:23.:02:26.

represent the UK Netherlands at the World Championships in America

:02:27.:02:30.

next year. What did you make of their singing?

:02:31.:02:34.

It was good. Did you expect to see that on a tram? No, not really.

:02:35.:02:39.

What did you make of the singing? Fabulous! Brightened everybody up.

:02:40.:02:42.

Everybody was smiling. It was good. Very good. Did you expect to see

:02:43.:02:47.

that on a tram ever? No, never ` and it brightened the journey up. It

:02:48.:02:49.

were wonderful. Now to that other song contest `

:02:50.:02:55.

Eurovision! Less than two hours now until it kicks off in Copenhagen.

:02:56.:02:58.

Close friends and family of Leicestershire's Molly

:02:59.:03:00.

Smitten`Downes are with her in Denmark. They're supporting the

:03:01.:03:03.

Rothley singer who is representing the UK. She's performing last

:03:04.:03:07.

tonight, singing a song she wrote herself.

:03:08.:03:15.

THEY CHEER. I'm so pleased for her. She's worked

:03:16.:03:19.

so hard over the years to get somewhere, and now it looks like

:03:20.:03:23.

she's taking full advantage of it. Terrific. It's been amazing support.

:03:24.:03:27.

It's just been a real buzz around Leicester.

:03:28.:03:31.

And also live ` and already on air tonight from Copenhagen ` is The

:03:45.:03:48.

proper spring day full of sunshine and showers. Let's check your

weather now for the rest of the weekend. Sara has our forecast.

:03:52.:03:53.

:03:54.:03:55.

finally arrived and they are certainly going to stay with us as

:03:56.:03:59.

well through Sunday. It will be quite a cool day tomorrow, and in

:04:00.:04:02.

between those showers though we're still likely to see a little bit of

:04:03.:04:05.

sunshine. Now, they're continuing throughout the evening and

:04:06.:04:08.

overnight, one or two heavy ones still remaining into the early

:04:09.:04:11.

hours, and still a blustery night with that west`south`westerly wind

:04:12.:04:13.

and night`time temperature of nine Celsius. Throughout tomorrow morning

:04:14.:04:17.

though, the wind remains quite strong and gusty, the showers

:04:18.:04:20.

continue to filter in as well. The odd heavy one's still likely into

:04:21.:04:24.

the afternoon, with a chance of some thunder, but the temperatures

reaching a maximum of 14 Celsius tomorrow. It is going to be a little

building in to finish of the week. Simon Ward will have your updates

:04:35.:04:37.

:04:38.:05:12.

Good evening. We have seen plenty of showers scattered across the country

:05:13.:05:20.

today. There will be drier and brighter spells in between. Low

:05:21.:05:24.

pressure is sitting across the country, with some tightly packed

:05:25.:05:28.

isobars to the south. That indicates some strong winds. They will

:05:29.:05:32.

continue throughout the night, going up to gale force at times. The main

:05:33.:05:36.

focus of the wettest weather across parts of West Wales is this rain. It

:05:37.:05:42.

will not be a particularly cold start to Sunday. Showers, not

:05:43.:05:48.

everywhere, some of us will see drier weather weather window of

:05:49.:05:51.

sunshine around, but be prepared for those showers if you're stepping out

:05:52.:05:57.

in the morning. Throughout the day on Sunday, a bit of an improvement

:05:58.:06:01.

across parts of south-west England
