increase has occurred on radio. One reason waiting lists have gone up,

say the hospital, is because it is the very hospital `` popular

hospital with patients and readers also a high profile government

:00:12.:00:17.

campaign to get potential cancer patients seen. There will be an

:00:18.:00:23.

increase in weekend working, more nurses and the cases. The hope is we

:00:24.:00:29.

can clear our backlog and we are now beginning to plan how they can use

:00:30.:00:32.

that money to get ourselves back into an even keel. Derbyshire GPs

:00:33.:00:41.

say they would not need to refer so many patients if more money was

:00:42.:00:48.

given nationally to GPs. We might be able to make real differences to the

:00:49.:00:53.

pressures on hospitals if we had money, both the outpatient waiting

:00:54.:00:58.

lists and the AMD problems. It could be quicker. `` A and these problems.

:00:59.:01:13.

`` accident and emergency problems. The trust said it will need to

:01:14.:01:18.

recruit more staff and hopefully reduce the waiting times to get back

:01:19.:01:23.

on track within the year. Two wind turbines built in the region can't

:01:24.:01:26.

be switched on because they interfere with the radar at East

:01:27.:01:28.

Midlands Airport. They've been installed for Severn Trent Water,

:01:29.:01:32.

but the company's now having to pay for special software at the airport

:01:33.:01:35.

to help overcome the problem, as Mike O'Sullivan reports. They have

:01:36.:01:42.

become a new landmark in Derby but for four months these wind turbines

:01:43.:01:50.

have been at a standstill. It is because turning the blades at top

:01:51.:01:55.

speed interferes with the radar system at East Midlands Airport.

:01:56.:02:02.

They can trigger a little blip on the theory traffic control system.

:02:03.:02:17.

`` the air traffic control system. That is what they use to see

:02:18.1:14:53

aircraft. At East Midlands Airport around six miles from the Derby

1:14:541:14:53

turbines the say the were consulted before they went up. The airport

1:14:541:14:53

said they are currently working alongside Severn Trent Water and the

1:14:541:14:53

technology provider to install radar technology that will mitigate any

1:14:541:14:53

effect that the wind turbines have on the air traffic control

1:14:541:14:53

computers. The hope is that these machines will be able to begin

1:14:541:14:53

operation later this year. Police are trying to find a pair of robbers

1:14:541:14:53

who threatened to kill a man's dog ` forcing him to hand over his cash.

1:14:541:14:53

It happened while Billy Hyman was walking his pet Jess in

1:14:541:14:53

Loughborough. The robbers stole ?300. Next week we get a chance to

1:14:541:14:53

vote in the European elections, with candidates making immigration one of

1:14:541:14:53

the key battle grounds. The right to move around Europe for work, has

1:14:541:14:53

become a toxic election issue. Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy

1:14:541:14:53

Ball, has been listening to some of the arguments about how it's

1:14:541:14:53

affecting us. Signs in Polish on the streets of Nottingham, the most

1:14:541:14:53

visible effect of the free movement from Europe. Changes that brought as

1:14:541:14:53

everything from the proverbial Polish plumber to workers in the

1:14:541:14:53

farming industry. I am trying to look for a job and I cannot get one

1:14:541:14:53

because the foreigners are taking it. In a job they give foreigners

1:14:541:14:53

less money. If that level of concern appropriate? Polish migrants make up

1:14:541:14:53

just 1% of the established population, including those who have

1:14:541:14:53

been here since World War II. At this community centre they are

1:14:541:14:53

worried about the tone of the debate. I feel threatened, unwelcome

1:14:541:14:53

and sometimes as a second`hand jettison. `` second`class citizen.

1:14:541:14:53

We do the jobs that other people do not want to do. These people

1:14:541:14:53

consider it a two`way process. They have been to work or university on

1:14:541:14:53

the continent as part of the year Rasmus game. I think it is

1:14:541:14:53

small`minded to blame immigration for the recession. It is an issue

1:14:541:14:53

that voters are talking about and that is why it matters so much.

1:14:541:14:53

That's your news. So, it's goodbye from me, and I'll leave you now with

1:14:541:14:53

Mel and your forecast. It has been a day of blue skies one minute, heavy

1:14:541:14:53

showers the next. It will be unsettled over the next few days,

1:14:541:14:53

dry with sunshine and temperatures on the rise. Showers are fading and

1:14:541:14:53

sky is beginning to clear. Overnight lows will drop to seven or eight

1:14:541:14:53

Celsius in built up areas but closer to two or three degrees Celsius in

1:14:541:14:53

rural areas. Temperatures will pick up nicely as the morning gets going.

1:14:541:14:53

We will have good spells of sunshine around tomorrow. The sunshine will

1:14:541:14:53

earn easy. The temperatures will make all the difference, a high of

1:14:541:14:53

17 Celsius. In a few moments we have a full national forecast but for now

1:14:541:14:53

I'll leave you tomorrow evening, but a sunny

1:14:541:14:53

outlook, although it might start to breakdown in some places at the

1:14:541:14:53

weekend. Today the weather was the sort of weather where it couldn't

1:14:541:14:53

really make its mind up. It changed from hour to hour, there

1:14:541:14:53

were storm clouds and thunder and lightning as well. As far as

1:14:541:14:53

tomorrow goes, it will be sunny and warm so you can leave your lawn

1:14:541:14:53

bowlers at home although after today I wouldn't be surprised if you take

1:14:541:14:53

it just in case. You can see some of the big shower clouds moving across

1:14:541:14:53

the country, this is another loop here, the radar scans the horizon

1:14:541:14:53

and tells us where it has been raiding. You can see them over

1:14:541:14:53

Northern Ireland, over eastern England and down to the south-east.

1:14:541:14:53

Towards the end of the night it is going
