and we get at least one very good meal once a fortnight. Clubs like

:00:00.:00:00.

this one are started by volunteers and they are also worried about what

:00:00.:00:11.

could happen. If the nearly double the price, we will lose half the

:00:12.:00:17.

people here. It is a huge increase and a lot of old people will either

:00:18.:00:20.

reduce the amount of meals they have each week or stop taking them all

:00:21.:00:28.

together. When that happens, a lot of older people will move into poor

:00:29.:00:32.

health and many will end up in hospital and put pressure on the

:00:33.:00:38.

local authority and NHS. The council needs to serve `` save money. People

:00:39.:00:50.

would be offered a cheaper microwaveable frozen meal if they

:00:51.:00:59.

couldn't afford the new price. People are saying that you are

:01:00.:01:02.

targeting the most vulnerable in society. The carer organisations

:01:03.:01:09.

have all been informed. Will you listen to them? We are duty bound to

:01:10.:01:17.

listen to them and analyse what the responses are. I hope there will be

:01:18.:01:23.

very good suggestions which will come up during the consultation. How

:01:24.:01:37.

much is this a fatal... The consultation finishes in August. The

:01:38.:01:43.

council says it will listen to people and that is what people hope.

pension goes up by the same amount. has been detained by the Ukrainian

Today. Tonight, though, it seems he might have been released into the

care of the British Consul. Jeremy We hear today of a military

vehicle going up in flames and barricades all

around the city. Graham Phillips at work in the eastern Ukrainian city

of Mariupol. that he was stopped at a checkpoint

:02:27.:02:30.

by Ukrainian forces. After having his papers scrutinised, Mr Phillips

:02:31.:02:36.

was detained. His detention follows

:02:37.:02:43.

what appears to be an online employers at Russia Today, which is

:02:44.:02:48.

funded by the Russian state, to say he was being held and that he'd been

:02:49.:02:52.

asked if he was a Russian spy. Russia Today believes Mr Phillips,

:02:53.:02:56.

who's originally from Nottingham, was stopped in the east of Ukraine

:02:57.:02:59.

and taken to the capital Kiev for questioning by Ukrainian

:03:00.:03:02.

security forces. Russia Today has had radio silence

:03:03.:03:12.

from him and they are extremely concerned. There are various reports

:03:13.:03:19.

about him perhaps already being in the F `` the capital of Ukraine.

:03:20.:03:28.

There are a lot of reports as to where he could be. There are few

:03:29.:03:41.

atmosphere is so poisonous for journalists as here, where the truth

:03:42.:03:45.

is interpreted differently by Russians and Ukrainians. Mr Phillips

:03:46.:03:50.

has made a reference on his social media accounts to calls for him to

:03:51.:03:55.

be arrested and deported from the country. He met them with defiance.

:03:56.:04:04.

The conditions, if any, of his release are not clear.

:04:05.:04:08.

Still to come ` Derby County announce a key part of its line up

:04:09.:04:11.

for Saturday's play`off final at Wembley. Our cameras were there as

:04:12.:04:15.

nine`year`old Rams fan Archie Nelson was told he'll be team mascot for

:04:16.:04:18.

A Derbyshire man is among 17 who've been arrested in the UK as part of

:04:19.:04:29.

an FBI`led international crackdown on a dangerous computer programme.

:04:30.:04:31.

BlackShades software allows hackers to remotely control computers and

:04:32.:04:34.

webcams. Criminals can use it to capture personal information. The

:04:35.:04:41.

man from Derbyshire was detained by the East Midlands Special Operations

:04:42.:04:44.

Unit ` a collaboration of local forces.

:04:45.:04:49.

greater risk of repossession or eviction than anywhere else outside

:04:50.:04:54.

of London, according to the housing charity Shelter. It says one in

:04:55.:04:58.

every 54 homes in the city could soon face a mortgage or landlord

:04:59.:05:02.

possession claim. More than 4000 households across England are at

:05:03.:05:05.

risk of losing their home every week.

:05:06.:05:10.

A Leicestershire brewery has won an award for rescuing closed down and

:05:11.:05:14.

struggling pubs. Everards has invested more than ?11 million to

:05:15.:05:18.

revive the fortunes of nearly 30 pubs by renting them out to

:05:19.:05:22.

micro`brewers and independent real ale champions, Mike O'Sullivan's

:05:23.:05:28.

been to one of the pubs that now should have a thriving future.

:05:29.:05:39.

They are rolling out the barrel at this revitalised pub in Nottingham.

:05:40.:05:48.

It is named after a Royal Navy Admiral who was once cheered to the

:05:49.:05:51.

streets of Nottingham after defeating the French in the 1790s.

:05:52.:05:58.

Today, the campaign for real ale is saying cheers as well. This pub is

:05:59.:06:12.

owned by Everards brewery but rented to a micro brewery with the freedom

:06:13.:06:19.

to run it as they like. To resurrect the rundown pubs and Steven come

:06:20.:06:23.

back to life is absolutely brilliant. Since 2007, Everards has

:06:24.:06:34.

spent ?11.5 million buying up 19 closed pubs and handing over ten of

:06:35.:06:39.

their own to be run by microbreweries or independent cask

:06:40.:06:44.

ale champions. 300 jobs have been created. It has been called Project

:06:45.:06:51.

William after another historic character, they are founder who

:06:52.:06:57.

began as a small brewer in 1840s. We saw that there were too many pubs

:06:58.:07:05.

closing but there was a trend of emerging new breweries so we

:07:06.:07:13.

connected both trends. We wondered how it would work and we are

:07:14.:07:18.

delighted it has brought back so many pubs and revitalised

:07:19.:07:25.

communities. Everards aims to convert another 35 new pubs to the

:07:26.:07:29.

business model in the next five years.

:07:30.:07:33.

On the eve of the European and local elections, the Prime Minister today

:07:34.:07:36.

took his campaign message to Newark, where a crucial parliamentary

:07:37.:07:39.

by`election follows in a fortnight's time. The results of tomorrow's

:07:40.:07:42.

elections will be a key test of whether the Conservatives can retain

:07:43.:07:46.

Newark on June the 5th. Let's find out more from our political editor,

:07:47.:07:49.

John Hess. John, was Mr Cameron's snap visit to Newark a surprise?

:07:50.:07:58.

It certainly illustrates the importance the Prime Minister

:07:59.:08:01.

attaches to defending the Conservatives 16,000 majority in

:08:02.:08:04.

Newark because he turned up with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. It's

:08:05.:08:08.

the second visit David Cameron has made to the constituency in recent

:08:09.:08:12.

weeks. Today was a brief stop`over, but he had time to meet shoppers on

:08:13.:08:16.

market day. The by`election was forced by the resignation of

:08:17.:08:20.

Newark's former Conservative MP Patrick Mercer in a scandal over

:08:21.:08:23.

taking cash for asking parliamentary questions. The big challenge to the

:08:24.:08:28.

Conservatives here, as it will be in tomorrow's elections to the European

:08:29.:08:34.

Parliament, is UKIP. Tomorrow, 3,000 polling stations

:08:35.:08:36.

across the East Midlands will open from seven in the morning until ten

:08:37.:08:39.

o'clock at night. For the elections to the European Parliament, the

:08:40.:08:44.

ballot form will include the names of the nine parties that are

:08:45.:08:48.

standing. And because this election uses proportional representation,

:08:49.:08:53.

you vote for the party. The share of the regional vote for each party

:08:54.:08:57.

will decide the five MEPs that represent the East Midlands. Also

:08:58.:09:02.

there are a handful of local council elections tomorrow ` in Derby City,

:09:03.:09:08.

Amber Valley in Derbyshire, and Bassetlaw in North Nottinghamshire.

:09:09.:09:11.

One third of seats are being contested here.

:09:12.:09:14.

And organising an election on a region`wide scale isn't a simple

:09:15.:09:21.

matter. This is the Kettering Conference Centre. It's also the

:09:22.:09:21.

home of English volleyball, and on Sunday night the Euro results from

:09:22.:09:24.

40 counting centres will be fed to the East Midlands regional election

:09:25.:09:29.

centre. So, as they say in volleyball, a case of set, spike and

:09:30.:09:33.

Firstly, the formal result, perhaps sometime around midnight. I imagine

:09:34.:09:39.

that the media will be able to make accurate predictions about who the

:09:40.:09:45.

five candidates might be for the East Midlands sometime as early as

:09:46.:09:49.

early as 10:30 or 10:45pm, because we will have a number of

:09:50.:09:54.

Why the three`day delay in counting? That is because some

:09:55.:10:03.

countries don't have that their vote until Sunday.

:10:04.:10:10.

A court hearing got underway today over plans for one of the biggest

:10:11.:10:14.

housing developments in Leicestershire for a generation. The

:10:15.:10:16.

judicial review hearing took place at the High Court. It's considering

:10:17.:10:20.

a decision to approve plans for thousands of homes in Lubbesthorpe.

:10:21.:10:23.

The hearing was sought by the Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive

:10:24.:10:26.

Loader. He believes funding arrangements will put a strain on

:10:27.:10:31.

policing. The court was told a decision could be made next week.

:10:32.:10:39.

Chatsworth House is to introduce audio guides in Mandarin after a new

:10:40.:10:42.

surge in interest from Asia. The tourist group Visit Britain asked

:10:43.:10:45.

people in China where they'd most like to go in the UK. The North

:10:46.:10:49.

Derbyshire stately home came second just behind Buckingham Palace. The

:10:50.:10:52.

area's already seen a marked increase in visitors from China.

:10:53.:10:58.

And still on the tourism trail, plans have been unveiled for the

:10:59.:11:02.

transformation of a Nottingham pub, based in a former Victorian music

:11:03.:11:09.

hall. The Malt Cross has been given more than ?1 million by the Heritage

:11:10.:11:13.

Lottery Fund to expand into underground floors and caves.

:11:14.:11:15.

They'll house a heritage education and arts centre, music studio and

:11:16.:11:18.

art gallery. Bosses say they're looking forward to the facelift.

:11:19.:11:26.

He's undoubtedly one of the East Midlands greatest`ever painters, and

:11:27.:11:29.

now his work is to become much more accessible. Derby Museum is putting

:11:30.:11:33.

the finishing touches to its new Joseph Wright Institute. It'll give

:11:34.:11:36.

art lovers from here and abroad unrestricted access to Wright's

:11:37.:11:39.

paintings, sketches and letters. James Roberson reports.

:11:40.:11:55.

Following the spotlight on Joseph Wright's work. Experts at the Art

:11:56.:12:08.

Gallery are checking lighting. The exhibition ties in with the opening

:12:09.:12:17.

of the new Joseph Wright Institute, which is also being prepared in the

:12:18.:12:28.

rooms next door. For decades, the only way to view the hundreds of

:12:29.:12:34.

drawings, sketches, portraits and letters was in the museum's Private

:12:35.:12:36.

archive. Special transparent drawers are being prepared to show them off.

:12:37.:12:44.

This resource is opened to absolutely everyone. We want to

:12:45.:12:54.

welcome everyone from families to academics. It is open to everyone.

:12:55.:13:05.

Next door will be a study Gallery and the display of his influence.

:13:06.:13:16.

These and a new exhibition of Joseph Wright's work will be running until

:13:17.:13:22.

August. They are fantastically evocative and lively. You can almost

:13:23.:13:31.

touch the explosions. The last time his work went abroad to Paris and

:13:32.:13:42.

New York was in the early 90s. Now they want to take it overseas again

:13:43.:13:43.

to an audience which already globally venerates him. It is all in

:13:44.:13:46.

preparation for a major retrospective of his work. We will

:13:47.:13:47.

hold it in about five years. We want to take it internationally. For the

:13:48.:13:48.

children and child in all of us, 18th`century costume is so life can

:13:49.:14:03.

imitate art. The colour for tomorrow will be dark

:14:04.:14:05.

grey. The heavens will open tonight. First, we start with Derby County

:14:06.:14:36.

and Head Coach Steve McClaren says he won?t tell the players his

:14:37.:14:39.

starting line up for the play`off final until Saturday. But it's

:14:40.:14:43.

pretty safe to say goalie Lee Grant will be one of the lucky ones to

:14:44.:14:46.

start against QPR. So with just three days to go until the big game,

:14:47.:14:50.

Kirsty Edwards has been counting Lee Grant is number one at Derby. He

:14:51.:15:12.

is the only player to have been on the pitch for every single minute.

:15:13.:15:17.

It was very different during his first spell with the club as a

:15:18.:15:21.

youngster. Chances were limited and seven years ago when they were

:15:22.:15:23.

winning promotion at Wembley, he had to watch from the stands. How does

:15:24.:15:31.

it feel to now be returning here with Derby, stepping out at

:15:32.:15:37.

Wembley? I want to grab it with both hands and enjoy it because I had the

:15:38.:15:40.

most amazing day going down and supporting them and being part of

:15:41.:15:43.

it. I didn't get a chance to play in it. I didn't get a chance to play in

:15:44.:15:49.

the final but I will this time. I am really looking forward to it. It is

:15:50.:15:54.

as big as it gets. The return of Steve McClaren saw Eric Steele back

:15:55.:16:02.

at the club as well. Your Mac he brought me to the club as a

:16:03.:16:06.

16`year`old so I have come full circle. He has come back with a

:16:07.:16:16.

wealth of knowledge. You get to a stage in your career when you think

:16:17.:16:21.

you know it all and I have learned every day since he has been here.

:16:22.:16:29.

His confidence and his belief that Derby can make the Premier League

:16:30.:16:36.

have grown. The belief has drawn for me, the players and the town and

:16:37.:16:44.

everyone connected with the club. We are doing everything within our

:16:45.:16:47.

power to get the right outcome on Saturday.

:16:48.:16:52.

starting line`up, the name for one very important job on Saturday was

:16:53.:16:57.

confirmed today. A young Rams fan was told they will be team mascot

:16:58.:17:02.

for the day. And Simon Hare was there when the club's well`known

:17:03.:17:08.

full`time mascot helped to deliver the news.

:17:09.:17:12.

Morning assembly at this Derby primary school and a special visitor

:17:13.:17:16.

with an extra special treat for one pupil.

:17:17.:17:22.

Oh, OK. Is there an Archie Nelson around?

:17:23.:17:27.

As a big Rams fan, Archie already knew he was off to

:17:28.:17:31.

Wembley, but he didn't know he has been chosen for a very important

:17:32.:17:35.

I am going to be the mascot to lead the Derby County team out to

:17:36.:17:40.

We've been keeping it secret since Friday.

:17:41.:17:49.

how he would react. He'll be so excited and I think he always

:17:50.:17:57.

expected to get out on that Wembley pitch so he'll love it. You were

:17:58.:18:01.

going anyway, weren't you? Yes. My eldest son and Archie are both

:18:02.:18:04.

season`ticket holders so we got the tickets later on.

:18:05.:18:10.

like, oh, there's Rammy but I didn't think he was going to call my name

:18:11.:18:18.

Did she not tell you she'd entered you for the competition?

:18:19.:18:21.

No. Are you glad she did? Yes.

:18:22.:18:23.

He'll be walking out onto the prestigious

:18:24.:18:25.

pitch and hopefully leading out a victorious team. There's only one

:18:26.:18:28.

mascot per team so it's an incredible opportunity for him

:18:29.:18:31.

today. While some players and managers never get the chance to

:18:32.:18:34.

walk out at Wembley, Archie will have achieved that feat aged just

:18:35.:18:37.

Cricket and England selector and Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket

:18:38.:18:47.

Mick Newell says Harry Gurney couldn't have done any more on his

:18:48.:18:51.

England T20 debut. Gurney took two for 26 in England's defeat to Sri

:18:52.:18:59.

Lanka at the Oval last night, and would have had a third wicket but

:19:00.:19:03.

for the dropping of a simple chance. At the top of the order, Alex Hales

:19:04.:19:07.

smashed 66 as England fell nine runs short.

:19:08.:19:12.

And in the County Championship today. Leicestershire's cricketers

:19:13.:19:15.

have gone down to a heavy defeat ` losing by 278 runs to Hampshire in

:19:16.:19:20.

the County Championship at Grace Road. The visitors declared on 338

:19:21.:19:23.

for nine in their second innings this morning, but the Foxes were

:19:24.:19:28.

skittled out for just 96 with Angus Robson, Ned Eckersley, Niall O'Brien

:19:29.:19:34.

and Rob Taylor all going for ducks. Greg Smith top scored with 39.

:19:35.:19:39.

And in hockey, England International and Leicester Ladies star

:19:40.:19:41.

Nicola White says she is considering her future at the club.

:19:42.:19:44.

together today and in training for the up and coming World Cup. If she

:19:45.:19:50.

leaves Leicester it would leave the side without an England

:19:51.:19:54.

It is a balance between being loyal to the club and what is best for

:19:55.:20:08.

your needs. It is hard because as much as you want to stay at a club

:20:09.:20:12.

and are happy there, sometimes you have to be selfish and think what is

:20:13.:20:16.

right for you at that time. It is a tricky decision but I am going to

:20:17.:20:23.

think about what is best for me. But there is good news, they're hosting

:20:24.:20:29.

a big event in June. apart ` but this morning

:20:30.:20:34.

schoolchildren in Nottingham received gifts from children living

:20:35.:20:37.

in Syria. Last year, St Patrick's Primary School sent boxes

:20:38.:20:40.

full of supplies to the war`torn country. Today, it was the turn of

:20:41.:20:43.

the Syrian children to say thank Holding up their drawings with

:20:44.:20:47.

pride. But these are not the creations of the children from St

:20:48.:20:54.

Patrick's Primary but instead gifts from children living in Syria. This

:20:55.:20:57.

is why. Last year, Saint Patrick's

:20:58.:21:07.

sent supplies for children in parts of rural Syria affected by civil

:21:08.:21:09.

war. They were taken there by a charity Hand`in`hand For Syria. It

:21:10.:21:13.

is estimated there are more than 1 million Syrian refugee children. We

:21:14.:21:18.

managed to put a smile on a lot of children's faces. A smile they

:21:19.:21:24.

missed for the last two or three years, some of them. Some lost their

:21:25.:21:27.

parents so to get them a gift repaired by friends in the UK,

:21:28.:21:32.

especially in Nottingham. The gesture has been returned with

:21:33.:21:37.

children sending back their own home`made gifts. These range from

:21:38.:21:40.

drawings to this 11`year`old's prized possession ` a maths

:21:41.:21:45.

certificate. I felt amazed because they are also beautiful and because

:21:46.:21:51.

they have such little it is hard to think they would draw something so

:21:52.:21:55.

amazing. It is absolutely brilliant. Because on the face of Mickey Mouse,

:21:56.:22:00.

it has the flag of Syria. And it says welcome to Syria. That means

:22:01.:22:06.

that person is waiting for a new start and they are going to be

:22:07.:22:16.

welcomed to Syria. I think they are coping really well because they have

:22:17.:22:20.

hope and it is really amazing because when you have hope you can

:22:21.:22:24.

never give up. Whilst the children here understand the difficulties

:22:25.:22:28.

many face in Syria, their message is We have a lot of rain overnight

:22:29.:23:06.

tonight. It will be a difficult night for travelling anywhere. There

:23:07.:23:13.

is a yellow weather warning because of the intensity of the brain. It

:23:14.:23:21.

will move its way towards the north`west in the early hours. We

:23:22.:23:27.

might see the odd shower head of it. The cloud will increase and then the

:23:28.:23:32.

rain will arrive around 11 o'clock. Difficult driving conditions and the

:23:33.:23:38.

chance of subsurface water flooding. Quite a humid night. Temperatures

:23:39.:23:46.

are live in Celsius. It will clear quite quickly towards the North.

:23:47.:23:51.

Into the afternoon, once the temperatures increase, further heavy

:23:52.:23:55.

and thundery showers are likely. Another misty afternoon. `` Rainey.

:23:56.:24:13.

There will be more showers for Friday and Saturday will be wet as

:24:14.:24:16.

well with the balance of showers through the day. Sunday looks as

:24:17.:24:22.

though the showers will ease a little bit and we could see some

:24:23.:24:27.

sunshine. At the moment it is a similar story for bank holiday
