This is East Midlands Today with Anne Davies and me, Dominic Heale.

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight ` Labour celebrate victory in one of our of key election battle

:00:09.:00:15.

grounds. After 14 years, Labour have ousted

:00:16.:00:21.

the Conservatives out of control in Amber Valley. APPLAUSE

:00:22.:00:31.

. Also tonight, the whole that the High Court rules that King Richard

:00:32.:00:36.

III remained. In Leicester. They will be at the heart of our

:00:37.:00:40.

city and the heart but muted. Captured on a camera phone, a secret

:00:41.:00:47.

visit to Nottingham by Prince Harry. In sports, it's the big match... ,

:00:48.:00:52.

this is Wembley and it's waiting for Derby County. Good evening and

:00:53.:01:04.

welcome to the programme. In the East Midlands, Labour triumph in the

:01:05.:01:08.

local elections. But their celebrations are muted ` because of

:01:09.:01:12.

the impact made by UKIP. Amber Valley swung from Conservative to

:01:13.:01:15.

Labour control for first time in 14 years, with the Tory leader blaming

:01:16.:01:22.

what he called UKIP "interference". And in Derby, while Labour still

:01:23.:01:27.

runs the city, UKIP won two seats. In North Nottinghamshire, Labour

:01:28.:01:29.

kept control of Bassetlaw, and gained a seat from the

:01:30.:01:34.

Conservatives. For more detail on this let's join our Political Editor

:01:35.:01:42.

John Hess, who's in Amber Valley. Good evening. Let's have a look at

:01:43.:01:52.

those results. Labour lost to seek to UKIP that gained two others The

:01:53.:01:56.

Lib dems also lost two seats including that of Amjit Atwal ` the

:01:57.:01:59.

councillor controversially pictured with an AK47 assault rifle. Hardly

:02:00.:02:13.

any change in Bassetlaw. It is the Labour`controlled. It's all change

:02:14.:02:18.

in labour in `` Amber Valley. Those figures do not tell the whole story

:02:19.:02:27.

and the impact of the union. In top voice, jubilant Labour

:02:28.:02:30.

supporters singing the Redcap micro flag. Labour secured the two seats

:02:31.:02:37.

it needed to gain control from the Conservative who had run the double

:02:38.:02:39.

ship Borough Council for more than 14 years.

:02:40.:02:43.

We have been trying for years to get it back for stop no big breakthrough

:02:44.:02:49.

for UKIP, yet the Conservatives claimed their loss on them.

:02:50.:02:53.

It not what we might call a straight fight. It was not on an even playing

:02:54.:03:01.

fight `` this field because of UKIP. The slender majority in this battle

:03:02.:03:06.

ground seems particularly vulnerable. We will have to do what

:03:07.:03:13.

we can to make it the same next year. Local and European elections

:03:14.:03:18.

are not a good guide for general elections. The Liberal Democrats,

:03:19.:03:23.

this is an election they will want to forget. Labour can feel

:03:24.:03:28.

victorious but more in relief. It was a very lengthy night with

:03:29.:03:33.

many delays. They did eventually get a result. Not an awful lot has

:03:34.:03:40.

changed. However, UKIP has made a significant breakthrough, two seats

:03:41.:03:45.

taken from Labour councillors. Obviously, they will be some

:03:46.:03:50.

analysis of figures. UKIP took a seat from Labour, the Conservatives

:03:51.:03:55.

and Liberals. Around the country, they said we just take seat from the

:03:56.:03:59.

Conservative, but tonight we won Labour seats. There is no doubt we

:04:00.:04:05.

have a lot to do in the city. Lots to implement. We will do. We will

:04:06.:04:11.

hit the General Election Trail for the 17th of May next year. Although

:04:12.:04:16.

the leadership of Derby will not change much, there is plenty of food

:04:17.:04:21.

for thought for all the car `` parties for how well UKIP might do

:04:22.:04:28.

in the General Election next year. How significant are the labour and

:04:29.:04:36.

UKIP gains today? This is Amber Valley's council town

:04:37.:04:42.

hall in Ripley. Tonight, the first time in 14 years it is now run by

:04:43.:04:47.

the Labour Party. Winning those two crucial seat off the Conservatives

:04:48.:04:51.

would the minimum that Labour had to do. There will be those locally and

:04:52.:04:56.

nationally that will think that with a year to go into the General

:04:57.:05:00.

Election, Ed Miliband 's party should be pulling much better. That

:05:01.:05:06.

is the UKIP effect. Although the turnout was barely 35%, it has not

:05:07.:05:10.

made the seeping games that certainly some of Nigel Farage's

:05:11.:05:15.

supporters was hoping it would do. Certainly, the impact is there and

:05:16.:05:19.

we will await the outcome of the Euro elections on Sunday night.

:05:20.:05:25.

Whatever the outcome, and also of the Newark by`election, certainly

:05:26.:05:31.

the other parties have got some worries.

:05:32.:05:38.

It has been a long battle fought over 18 who famously died in battle.

:05:39.:05:42.

Today came a ruling that means which the third will stay in Leicester.

:05:43.:05:46.

The High Court decided that the license granted to the city to

:05:47.:05:50.

reinterpret the remains found in the car park is lawful. A group of

:05:51.:05:56.

dissident relatives had called free book to be his final resting place.

:05:57.:06:02.

Leicester relative that they are delighted and plans for a ceremony

:06:03.:06:06.

are underway. In the place where Richard III will

:06:07.:06:12.

be laid to rest, Leicester finally made the announcement it had longed

:06:13.:06:17.

for. If you haven't heard, the result is that the judgement.

:06:18.:06:25.

The justice secretary did not have a duty to consult before issuing the

:06:26.:06:29.

license to the University of Leicester, authorising his choice of

:06:30.:06:32.

the cathedral for the re`interment. For the man who led the search for

:06:33.:06:38.

the remains, it was vindication. I am extremely relieved. It's

:06:39.:06:43.

finally over. We can move on and the cathedral can put into effect

:06:44.:06:47.

planned to be very rigid with great dignity and honour. Very pleased

:06:48.:06:50.

indeed. For the vanquished, defiant

:06:51.:06:56.

disappointing `` disappointment. We will think about it and make some

:06:57.:07:01.

decisions. I am pleased that went to court in the first place. Richard is

:07:02.:07:06.

Richard of York. His heart and soul lies in York even though his body

:07:07.:07:10.

lies in Leicester. Work outside the cathedral is

:07:11.:07:15.

already in full swing. We designing the gardens to reposition the statue

:07:16.:07:19.

of Richard III. The data is a ruling means the plans are no longer in

:07:20.:07:22.

limbo. We will be working very fast indeed.

:07:23.:07:27.

Building work will begin in July. The new design for the tomb will be

:07:28.:07:32.

revealed in three or four weeks' time. We will `` you will recognise

:07:33.:07:40.

it old but it has changed. We will work very hard as a team to make

:07:41.:07:43.

sure that everything is done for Spring 2015. This will be an

:07:44.:07:50.

outstanding, well`planned, civic ceremony. The nation will be

:07:51.:07:55.

watching and will be work centred. No doubt, the Royal family will want

:07:56.:07:59.

to be when presented. It would be an event that the people of Leicester

:08:00.:08:02.

and Leicestershire can feel proud of. This extraordinary story began

:08:03.:08:07.

almost two years ago when originally said's remains were dug up in his

:08:08.:08:11.

council car park. The new visitor centre behind me will be opened by

:08:12.:08:16.

July. By next spring, a stone's throw from where he was originally

:08:17.:08:21.

buried, the anointed king will be reinterred with dignity and honour.

:08:22.:08:33.

From King Richard, to Prince Harry. Later in the programme, the fourth

:08:34.:08:36.

in line to the throne makes a private visit to our region. Camera

:08:37.:08:43.

phone pictures show his surprise appearance at a recording studio in

:08:44.:08:47.

inner`city Nottingham. It is time for another bank holiday

:08:48.:08:52.

weekend. Typically my forecast include some rain and thunder and

:08:53.:08:58.

sunshine. There is even a weather warning.

:08:59.:09:08.

Next: Sending energy to the Middle East from the East Midlands. It

:09:09.:09:12.

sounds like sending polls to Newcastle but it is happening. An

:09:13.:09:19.

environmental waste company in Nottingham has landed a major deal

:09:20.:09:24.

with United Arab error `` emirates for a power that makes renewable

:09:25.:09:30.

power. Doing a visit to Chinook Sciences, it was said that a hundred

:09:31.:09:39.

`` many jobs will be the created. A big day and big business for this

:09:40.:09:44.

Nottingham company. The tread minister, Lord Livingston, announced

:09:45.:09:51.

a major deal. This contract will build one of the world 's largest

:09:52.:09:57.

waste gas facilities. The plant will process a wide range of waste and

:09:58.:10:00.

recycling residues. It would be manufactured here and

:10:01.:10:07.

assembled in the UAE. It will process materials which help to

:10:08.:10:13.

create renewable energy. It's going to create or safeguard 850 jobs

:10:14.:10:21.

across the UK. It is an area where the UK science is absolutely

:10:22.:10:25.

leading. It's good for the Ryman and for jobs. It is good Nottingham in

:10:26.:10:32.

particular. `` environment. It will create 100 jobs in this

:10:33.:10:35.

region and that your hundreds of others. We have been fortunate to

:10:36.:10:42.

have excellent suppliers in the East Midlands. It's a happy day for them.

:10:43.:10:48.

It means sustainability and it will secure jobs. This is the first major

:10:49.:10:54.

deals with the government announced a new programme of investment and

:10:55.:10:57.

medium`sized businesses. The East Midlands is the first region to

:10:58.:11:01.

benefit. It'd hope that it will showcase Nottingham as a centre of

:11:02.:11:08.

high`tech expertise. A teenager charged with four counts

:11:09.:11:13.

of murder has admitted sending a message after the fire talking about

:11:14.:11:18.

killing. Nathaniel Mullings denies, along with seven others, being

:11:19.:11:24.

responsible for an Arsenal `` arson attack which killed men was a

:11:25.:11:29.

bittersweet family. I've failed to kill everyone. The city was upset

:11:30.:11:37.

and angry about the stabbing of his friend and one at bomb earlier that

:11:38.:11:50.

evening. `` Akpom. A fairground operator has pleaded guilty after

:11:51.:11:53.

two teenage boys were flying out of his flight `` ride. In July 2012 the

:11:54.:12:01.

carriage of flipped over, one boy was seriously injured. William

state `` find a ?6,000. The National watersports Centre in

:12:13.:12:15.

Nottingham has reopened after a revamp costing more than six and a

:12:16.:12:21.

half million pounds. It's not just for elite athletes. There are plenty

:12:22.:12:26.

of attractions including a hybrid course, minigolf, cycling and Segway

:12:27.:12:33.

higher. The work has taken 12 months to complete.

:12:34.:12:37.

We have already seen local people coming in saying how improved it is.

:12:38.:12:42.

The whole point was to make it more accessible. Previously, it was a

:12:43.:12:45.

National Sports Centre. It's not elite. So many people in Nottingham

:12:46.:12:52.

have not been here. We wanted to be a place that people can come and

:12:53.:12:56.

enjoy themselves. A man who attacked the leader of a

:12:57.:12:59.

seek spiritual movement with an axe in a Leicester Temple has been found

:13:00.:13:03.

guilty of attempted needle `` the murder. He admitted he had been

:13:04.:13:11.

consumed by hatred by a man loan by `` ring known by many as a leading

:13:12.:13:16.

guru. He alleged the man had sexually abused as a child.

:13:17.:13:25.

CCTV captures him by the biggest and scariest looking axe at a Leicester

:13:26.:13:28.

store. Three days later the 27`year`old was seen walking to the

:13:29.:13:32.

temple with the three foot axe concealed under a shawl. His target

:13:33.:13:39.

was his Holiness, the world leader of the man Dari seeks who was in

:13:40.:13:43.

Leicester as part of an official visit to the UK. He swung the axe

:13:44.:13:51.

and cut his face and broke his arm. Someone who witnessed the attack

:13:52.:13:54.

last August, because the moment it happened.

:13:55.:13:58.

To season one job with an axe onto the stage. Everyone was up and

:13:59.:14:03.

running to the stage to see if his Holiness was alive. To see someone

:14:04.:14:07.

singing and act on his Holiness's head was frightening. The whole

:14:08.:14:11.

community was crying. They also the crying. The children started

:14:12.:14:15.

crying. The bank worker claimed he had been

:14:16.:14:18.

strictly abused as HR world in India by the rigidly leader `` religious

:14:19.:14:25.

leader in the 1990s. The guru repeatedly denied this. He said he

:14:26.:14:31.

only intended to hurt him. The CPS said it was a vicious assassination

:14:32.:14:36.

attempt on a defenceless man. Today at Birmingham Crown Court, he was

:14:37.:14:41.

jailed for 17 years, nearly nine months on from the attack many of

:14:42.:14:45.

the temple's conservation are still haunted by what they saw.

:14:46.:14:56.

No one expected it, but it made a lot of young people very happy.

:14:57.:14:58.

Prince Harry made an unannounced visit to a youth centre in

:14:59.:15:02.

inner`city Nottingham. The prince joined children on the music and

:15:03.:15:07.

film project in sedans. `` Saint Anne 's.

:15:08.:15:14.

This is where the prince turned up completely out of the blue. Staff

:15:15.:15:17.

were expected to meet officials from his charity, but Harry decided to

:15:18.:15:25.

join them. He is no stranger here. Last he made an official royal visit

:15:26.:15:32.

here. He was finalising plans to fund three years of youth work year.

:15:33.:15:38.

Today, he came back for a private visit. At the garage across the

:15:39.:15:42.

road, you can imagine how surprised they were. Paul and Anthony managed

:15:43.:15:45.

to get in snaps. It was a bit of a shock. A massive

:15:46.:15:52.

secret. It is not something you would expect to see when you come to

:15:53.:15:55.

work in the morning. It was a bit of a surprise. I am told Harry spent a

:15:56.:16:02.

good couple of hours here. He spent time with youngsters from Huntingdon

:16:03.:16:05.

primary School, sitting on a film course and having a go on a bass

:16:06.:16:11.

guitar. He also delivered on a promise to record some words for a

:16:12.:16:15.

track of some local musicians. It's pretty clear that Harry is taking a

:16:16.:16:16.

real interest in what is happening you tomorrow. McLaren and Redknapp.

:16:17.:17:14.

Buxton, Keogh and grant. Barker and Derby full stop Derby berserker fans

:17:15.:17:23.

too. Steve versus Harry at the world's

:17:24.:17:30.

most famous stadium. The former England manager McLaren is ingrained

:17:31.:17:35.

in Derby berserker history against Redknapp. He is the experienced,

:17:36.:17:42.

wheeler dealer warhorse who need to go up. There is a lot of pressure on

:17:43.:17:48.

Queens Park Rangers. We want to try to get back in the Premier League.

:17:49.:17:53.

We want to win that game. It is the richest game in football. From

:17:54.:17:56.

Sam Oldham, who goes into the team final on Saturday. A real chance of

:17:57.:19:39.

medals there. There is also T20 cricket.

:19:40.:19:43.

This is where the Going back almost 50 years. Johnny

:19:44.:23:55.

Johnson rings the bell at Highfield School. He was a teacher here in the

:23:56.:24:01.

1960s for five years after his wartime and post`war experience in

:24:02.:24:05.

the RAF. He returned the Newark school to answer questions and today

:24:06.:24:09.

berserker pupils. Speaking of his most famous moment in the legendary

:24:10.:24:17.

Dambuster raid in 1943. What was it like being part of the cat must grow

:24:18.:24:26.

`` dambusters? We didn't know what we were going to do all what the

:24:27.:24:31.

target was until the day of the briefing. MUSIC PLAYS

:24:32.:24:42.

Also there, the low flier who took part in the film.

:24:43.:24:49.

60 feet, 30 tonne of aeroplane. That is low, it was exciting and

:24:50.:24:53.

frightening. What it must have been like doing the real thing in the

:24:54.:24:57.

dark and being shot at, I have no idea.

:24:58.:25:03.

Afterward the school, parents and Jenny Johnson's former pupils

:25:04.:25:05.

gathered outside and talked about his future book. Today it will never

:25:06.:25:12.

be anything other than the school for me. It is absolutely awesome.

:25:13.:25:23.

Yes, he is Dambusters a hero but he is my teacher. I have never

:25:24.:25:29.

forgotten him. The highlight, a fly past by two RAF planes. Eight to

:25:30.:25:34.

coat of Johnny's own wartime vintage. `` Dakota.

:25:35.:25:57.

There is something else happening this weekend. There is a certain

:25:58.:26:03.

football match happening. If you are going to support the rams, allow for

:26:04.:26:07.

some extra rain and thundery showers. Even during the game. Full

:26:08.:26:12.

coverage and commentary on the radio. It is of course another bank

:26:13.:26:19.

holiday weekend. As you would expect, there will be some shout was

:26:20.:26:25.

around and some sunshine. It will feel a little bit warm, especially

:26:26.:26:30.

on Sunday. We got away with the fairly dry day today. There has been

:26:31.:26:32.

a little bit of rain edging into parts of Leicestershire and

:26:33.:26:36.

Derbyshire in the last few hours. There is a little bit of rain

:26:37.:26:40.

around. Before that. Tearaway. Then, it would be largely dry. More in the

:26:41.:26:50.

way of cloud pushing in from the south as we headed toward dawn.

:26:51.:26:54.

Those of 10 Celsius. Tomorrow morning there will be heavy

:26:55.:26:59.

rainfall. There is a yellow warning. Potential of 30 millimetres of rain.

:27:00.:27:05.

Seth is what may be an issue. Here's rain arriving. Possibly thundery for

:27:06.:27:09.

a time. It will clear away to the North. Behind it, every thundery

:27:10.:27:15.

showers. Also some dry and bright spells. Feeling a little bit fresher

:27:16.:27:24.

with 15 and 16 degrees. Sunday will be largely dry and bright in the

:27:25.:27:32.

afternoon. Bank holiday Monday, just allow forces gathered to heavy

:27:33.:27:33.

showers. Dry at times. Let's look at the history
