outside the school for us tonight in Arnold.
The Executive Principal of the Trust which runs Arnbrook Primary told me
this "was a one`off incident which has horrified us all". The police

Nottingham have discovered the number of diagnosed cases of coeliac
disease has quadrupled over the last 20 years. They believe it's because
people are far more aware of the condition. People with coeliac
disease often have to avoid foods which contain gluten, so they don't
suffer unpleasant symptoms. Our health correspondent, Rob Sissons,
reports. Because it is an wheat, you will
find gluten in lots of food. Research by the University of
Nottingham reveals a number of people with coeliac disease who feel
unwell when they eat gluten foods has gone up fourfold in 20 xears.
This is when your small`bowel goes This is when your small`bowel goes

you are anaemic. That could be a strong indication that you should be
tested for coeliac disease. In blood tests one in a hundred people in the
UK test positive for coeliac disease.
They need to avoid wheat, b`rley and rye to avoid gloating and headaches.

But this lady, a gluten`free diet But this lady, a gluten`fred diet
has a way of life. She was not diagnosed for 40 years. My lemory of
childhood was continual illness The joy in all of this is that with all
the things you cannot have, you must use your mind to think about the
different things that are there. Example, polenta, the Americans use
it a great deal. Easdale is `` these days there is more awareness. This

A fire at a Derby supermarkdt is being treated as suspicious.
Officers at the nearby Pear Tree Police Station raised the alarm just
after 3.15am this morning. Four fire engines were called to Super Sam's,
which is said to be the biggest European food store in the city
No`one was injured. Leicestershire police have issued an

frauds. Officers want to question connection with a series of alleged
frauds. Officers want to qudstion a frauds. Officers want to question a
man who told his clients his name was Kamal`Ji. He claims to be a
"spiritual healer" who can help with health, business and relationship

asks for money, defrauding many clients of tens of thousands of
pounds. At the Queen's Medical Centre in
Nottingham just before Christmas. The couple had to face their loss on

Afterwards, they had to stax on the labour ward at the medical centre.
The contrast was amazing because you are in the depths of despair. You
come out and thereafter pictures of newborn babies, fathers with empty
car seats. The worst thing for me was hearing a father outsidd
car seats. The worst thing for me was hearing a father outside making
calls, telling his family hd had calls, telling his family hd had
just had a baby daughter, and knowing that we had to ring round
telling everybody what happdned That's why they've set up Forever
Stars, to raise money for a bereavement suite. That is the only
time you have with your baby. That's the only memories you have of your
baby. To have somewhere comfortable, peaceful, it would just help to make
that a smoother journey for people. So this week, she's meeting bosses

Much of the English Civil War You're watching your regional news.
Much of the English Civil War which changed our ideas about mon`rchy and
republicanism for other happened here in the East Midlands. Newark
was a key Royalist town. So it's highly appropriate that New`rk's
received millions of pounds to set up the country's only national Civil
War museum. James Roberson's been to see how work's progressing.
Enthusiast is re`enact one of the most influential periods of English
history, the Civil War of the mid`17th`century, in which new work
was pivotal. We reported two years ago that the old Magnus school in
the town was going to get a conversion into a national Civil War
museum. Now workers at full tilt. The main building is wrapped in
plastic sheeting to a height of 70 feet. Rooms are unused for decades
are now full of scaffolding and building teams. But perhaps most
spectacular are the oak roof beams of the 1529 building, revealed for
the first time since being instructed during the reign of Henry
VIII. Some of it survived miraculously, others failed
dismally. We need to decide what repairs are needed. The restoration
is being carried out by specialists from Nottinghamshire. There are
areas of rot and insect infestation areas of rot and insect infdstation
which have damaged this part of the roof. You can see the various bits
roof. You can see the variots bits of new joiner reinserted into the
roof. There was a doormat here. There are sections of newsp`per here
and sections that provide rudimentary damp`proofing. The
transformation would be happening without the bulk of the funds, 3.5
million, from the Heritage lottery fund. Without support look like that
from this sort of scheme, wd fund. Without support look like that
from this sort of scheme, wd would have lost the heritage and lost the
buildings. It is a heritage centre for people to enjoy and bring
tourists in. We've got some great interactives describing the scenes.

Time now for sport and the dream continues for Derby!
Well, after a magical Sundax, Derby County are almost all the way there.
County are almost all the w`y there. Almost all the way to the Premier
League. It was one of the best performances of the season ` and by
beating Brighton yesterday, Derby have put themselves into the
have put themselves into thd play`off final. One huge game at
play`off final. One huge gale at Wembley which could be worth
hundreds of millions of pounds ` and a priceless amount of glory. Kirsty
was there, and this is how they did it.
A miserable, grey, wet day. But the biggest day of the season for Derby.
One by one, the team arrive and amongst the fans, nervous excitement
builds. We were up at five o'clock this morning! So this is it, the
moment of truth. Are Derby destined for Wembley?
An early pause in play for some balloon popping but there w`s
nothing deflating about Derby's performance. How about this for a
goal? A cheeky backheel from performance. How about this for a
goal? A cheeky backheel frol Will goal? A cheeky backheel from Will
Hughes just the start of thhngs to come. Top scorer Chris Martin,
Hughes just the start of things to come. Top scorer Chris Marthn, of
come. Top scorer Chris Martin, of course, got in on the act. His goal
all but sealing the win. But Derby weren't finished there. George
Thorne's volley was superb. The Rams had been completely dominant. They
more than deserved yet another. Jeff Hendrick completing the rout. There
was a late consolation for Brighton. No`one cared, though. Just moments
later, the full`time whistld sparked later, the full`time whistle sparked
wild celebrations. This is big. This is really big. We've been working on
this quietly for five or six years now, stabilising the team. Look at
the team we've got. Unbelievable. I'm pretty proud to be part of this.
I've never been involved with anything like this in footb`ll.
I've never been involved with anything like this in football. This
is why you play the game, for something like this. Obviously, it's
a great achievement to turn up and put on such a great victory and
performance for the fans. You can just see them all now. They've been
brilliant all day and I'm sure brilliant all day and I'm sure
they'll fully back us when we get to Wembley. Huge celebrations for a
huge result. The Rams are just one huge result. The Rams are jtst one
win away from the Premier League. huge result. The Rams are just one
win away from the Premier Ldague. Go win away from the Premier League. Go

can't wait for Wembley. Comd on you Rams! THEY CHANT: We're the famous
Derby County and we're going to Wembley! They were awesome today.
From minute one, they just wore Brighton down. Wore them down and
wore them down. It's something Brighton down. Wore them down and
wore them down. It's somethhng you wore them down. It's something you
probably dream of as a kid, leading the team out at Wembley in such a
big game. Everyone deserves this today and hopefully we can finish it
off now. Quite a day ` and quite a couple of
weeks ahead for this man. S`m Quite a day ` and quite a couple of
weeks ahead for this man. Sam Rush weeks ahead for this man. S`m Rush

delighted as you are by the win though. It was fantastic watching it

everyone. For myself and the team. everyone. For myself and thd team.
We've got a fantastic team back at the stadium. You've got to dnjoy
moments like that. They're not all that often in football so you've got
to really enjoy them. They say winning could be worth as mtch
to really enjoy them. They say winning could be worth as much as
?120 million. How does that work? That's probably not an inaccurate
assessment over four or fivd years. assessment over four or fivd years.
It's the TV money, the prize`money. You wouldn't get that all in one go.
But spread over time, it will be very good for the club. Still a big
game to come. A word about the fans. How are you going to make sure
game to come. A word about the fans. How are you going to make stre all
the fans we saw celebrating, everyone who deserves to go, gets a
ticket for Wembley? We'll find out ticket for Wembley? We'll find out
tonight what our allocation will be. We have QPR and Wigan. A bit of a
difference in the allocations. But I'm sure we can accommodate all our
fans. You want Wigan so you can go and dominate Wembley? We'll find out
shortly who we'll get but whatever happens, we'll have a fantastic fan
base. The fans really made xesterday base. The fans really made yesterday
and it was an atmosphere th`t base. The fans really made xesterday
and it was an atmosphere that we've never seen before. Thrilling. I m
sure they'll do the same at Wembley. Are you going to be able to enjoy
the next fortnight or will ht be wrapped with tension? It'll be
enjoyable. A fantastic time for the football club. Thank you for coming
in on such a special weekend. Very much appreciated.

Dubbed as Europe's biggest party, the 59th Eurovision Song Contest
came and went with a bang this weekend. It was, of course, a big
night for the Leicestershire singer night for the Leicestershird singer
Molly Smitten`Downes ` who ended night for the Leicestershire singer
Molly Smitten`Downes ` who dnded up Molly Smitten`Downes ` who ended up
in 17th place. I was in Copdnhagen in 17th place. I was in Copdnhagen
following the highs and lows of the competition. We're supporting
Finland! And Sweden! The weird and wonderful world of
Eurovision. Copenhagen was teeming with fans, contestants and some very
excited members of Molly's family and friends. It's going really
well. We're absolutely having a ball and we're just so proud. And I'm
ready to burst. With the media spotlight on her, Molly seemed to be
taking it in her stride. I'l hoping that when I walk out that door, I'm
going to feel calm, collected, going to feel calm, collected,
confident. In my Zen. This hs the confident. In my Zen. This is the
press tent, where hundreds of journalists and broadcasters are
poised, ready to give their version of tonight's performances. In
poised, ready to give their version of tonight's performances. Hn just a
few hours, Molly will get up on that stage and perform her heart out. And
stage and perform her heart out And then the moment arrived.
# The feeling that I'll never walk alone.
# We're children of the universe #. But when the scores were in, it soon
became clear who the winner would be. And congratulations, Conchita.
Austria, 12 points. GRAHAM NORTON: Well, you can't say
fairer than that. So, Conchhta GRAHAM NORTON: Well, you can't say
fairer than that. So, Conchita stole the show for Austria. It wasn't
quite the top`table finish we would've liked for Molly but it was
certainly better than recent UK entries. Not bad for a
Leicestershire girl who used to have stage fright as a teenager. It was
great. Obviously, we are a bit disappointed but we've all enjoyed
disappointed but we've all dnjoyed it. It's been a great night. I don't
think there's any UK fan gohng home think there's any UK fan going home
tonight who isn't really, rdally tonight who isn't really, really
delighted with that perform`nce tonight who isn't really, rdally
delighted with that perform`nce and how well she did. Ten million people
watched Molly in the UK alone, with her music now showcased worldwide.
Commiserations to Molly but the Eurovision Song Contest alw`ys
throws up a huge surprise. Conchita ` who'd have thought it? I never saw
so many knitted beards in one room! We've had some wild weather this
weekend. Heavy winds and he`vy weekend. Heavy winds and heavy
showers. The isobars have bden showers. The isobars have been
opening out so the winds have been a bit lighter but we're still
struggling to ditch the showers and there will be more popping up
there will be more popping tp through tomorrow. Another day of
through tomorrow. Another d`y of sunshine and showers tomorrow but
hopefully the showers will be fewer and there will be more sunshine.
With the lighter winds, it isn't feeling too bad with temper`tures
into the mid`teens. We didn't manage to escape the showers today. Loads
of them rattling in on the winds. The winds slowly easing through
today and we will see showers continue over the next couple of
hours they should ease down later. One or two across northern parts of
Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire at most of us drying up. Five or six as
a minimum. Tomorrow morning, showers popping up fairly quickly. Once
again, there will be heavy ones so some hail and thunder possible later
in the day. More sunshine in between the showers and less frequent, as
well. In between the showers, in the sunshine, with lighter winds it will
feel pretty pleasant. 14 or 15 as a top temperature. That is a taste of
things to come because things are settling down quite nicely. An area
of high pressure settling across the UK, which will help squash out the
showers. Dreyer from Wednesday onwards so there will be more
sunshine around. And the big thing is that it is warming up quhte
is that it is warming up quite nicely with temperatures up to 0 by
nicely with temperatures up to 20 by the end of the week.
And early taste of summer, hopefully. We love it, don't we? See
you for the late news at 10:30pm. Goodbye.
