Ireland. And that is With your news now for the East

:00:00.:00:19.

Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. The family of a teacher from

:00:20.:00:22.

Leicestershire who is believed to have been murdered in Bali say they

:00:23.:00:28.

are consumed by overwhelming grief. Anne`Marie Drozdz had only recently

:00:29.:00:31.

arrived on the Indonesian island when she was found dead. Police in

:00:32.:00:35.

Bali think her death could be linked to a robbery. A man's been arrested.

:00:36.:00:41.

Emily Anderson reports. A bright, passionate and courageous

:00:42.:00:44.

woman who was an unsung hero, just some of the words used to describe

:00:45.:00:47.

Anne`Marie Drozdz.The 49`year`old teacher had been in Bali for five

:00:48.:00:54.

days. Her body was found late on Thursday afternoon in the villa

:00:55.:00:57.

where she had been staying in the tourist district of Ubud. Anne`Marie

:00:58.:01:05.

grew up in Hinckley Leicestershire. Back home, her family say they are

:01:06.:01:09.

struggling to deal with what has happened. You read about it and hear

:01:10.:01:15.

about it, but you never expect it is going to happen to you and when it

:01:16.:01:19.

does, it hits you like an express train. How has this left you

:01:20.:01:22.

feeling? It is almost impossible to describe. You start to feel hollow.

:01:23.:01:26.

You feel raw. You do not want to do the things that you normally do.

:01:27.:01:29.

Anne`Marie taught in international schools all over the world. She had

:01:30.:01:33.

gone to Bali to set up a social enterprise because she wanted to

:01:34.:01:36.

improve the lives of young people on the island. She was courageous

:01:37.:01:40.

because she did not choose the easy places to go and teach English. She

:01:41.:01:44.

taught in some of the more remote parts of the world, as it seems to

:01:45.:01:55.

us. And so, for all of that to go, it feels such a tragic waste of a

:01:56.:02:14.

life. Anne`Marie's family say they want her body to be brought back to

:02:15.:02:18.

the UK, with her final resting place in her home town of Hinckley, so

:02:19.:02:22.

that she can be with her family and they can be with her.

:02:23.:02:24.

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, was in Nottinghamshire again today,

:02:25.:02:27.

this time an unannounced visit. He handed out leaflets in Bingham

:02:28.:02:30.

before heading to Newark where next month voters will be choosing a

:02:31.:02:33.

successor to Patrick Mercer. Now, making that process run smoothly is

:02:34.:02:37.

all down to one man, as Quentin Rayner reports.

:02:38.:02:39.

When this man made this announcement at Westminster... I'm going to

:02:40.:02:42.

resign my seat in God's county of Nottinghamshire in the town of

:02:43.:02:45.

Newark. ..this man knew that things were going to get hectic. I thought,

:02:46.:02:49.

crikey, we're going to be busy and we're going to be in the spotlight.

:02:50.:02:53.

The stakes are high in Newark. The Prime Minister has already been up

:02:54.:02:56.

to support the Conservative candidate. UKIP is hoping to return

:02:57.:02:59.

its first`ever MP to Parliament. It is down to Andrew Muter to mobilise

:03:00.:03:03.

a team of 400 to staff more than 100 polling stations and deliver the

:03:04.:03:06.

count, with all eyes on the constituency. It is daunting but

:03:07.:03:09.

tremendously exciting as well. I love elections and being part of

:03:10.:03:13.

them. I am really looking forward to it. Why? It is a great opportunity

:03:14.:03:16.

to show Newark, to show democracy and to show the whole world how it

:03:17.:03:22.

works. What I have here is the writ which commands me to hold the

:03:23.:03:28.

election. Over on the rear side of it is where I will put the name of

:03:29.:03:33.

the successful MP and return it to Parliament. Recounts permitting, the

:03:34.:03:35.

result should be declared sometime after three o'clock in the morning

:03:36.:03:39.

And here are the names of the 11 candidates standing in that

:03:40.:03:44.

by`election next month. There was drama as thousands of

:03:45.:03:47.

spectators cheered on Britain's top cyclists when the Milk Race returned

:03:48.:03:50.

to Nottingham. Olympic champion Laura Trott was among the cyclists

:03:51.:03:54.

competing in the elite women's race. However, the men's race was halted

:03:55.:03:58.

for 40 minutes after a rider was injured in a collision. An off`duty

:03:59.:04:01.

paramedic, who'd herself taken part in an earlier race, gave emergency

:04:02.:04:04.

treatment. One of the unfortunate things that happen with racing, but

:04:05.:04:08.

it is just one of those things. It is something you always feel that

:04:09.:04:11.

you should do. If you're trained in that area, you will jump in and try

:04:12.:04:15.

and do what you can. Definitely. In football, Derby County must play

:04:16.:04:18.

another season in the Championship after losing 1`0 in this weekend's

:04:19.:04:21.

play`off final at Wembley. The Rams fans leaving the famous stadium had

:04:22.:04:25.

seen their side dominate QPR only to concede a goal in the very last

:04:26.:04:29.

moments of play. It means they miss out on the Premiership and all its

:04:30.:04:33.

riches. But supporters we spoke to were staying positive. It has been a

:04:34.:04:36.

great day. Wembley is a fantastic place to go. QPR played well, we

:04:37.:04:40.

played better. The best team lost today. Never mind. We were robbed.

:04:41.:04:46.

QPR never even touched us. Never mind. All to do next year. At least

:04:47.:04:50.

we play Forest again. We can beat them 5`0. One slip, that is it.

:04:51.:04:57.

Over. Never mind, next season. To the weather. Let's see what's in

:04:58.:05:00.

store for the Bank Holiday. Mel Coles has the details.

:05:01.:05:04.

store for the Bank Holiday. Mel Coles Good evening. With the

:05:05.:05:06.

exception of parts of Derbyshire, many places have seen drier,

:05:07.:05:09.

brighter conditions today but the unsettled theme continues this week

:05:10.:05:12.

and The Met Office has issued an early warning for rain on Tuesday.

:05:13.:05:17.

Back to tonight, and many places enjoying decent spells of evening

:05:18.:05:20.

sunshine. We will keep the clear skies as we head through the night

:05:21.:05:24.

which may mean we see patches of mist and fog on Monday morning. Not

:05:25.:05:27.

a cold night, though, with overnight lows of nine degrees. A decent start

:05:28.:05:31.

the Bank Holiday Monday and good spells of sunshine around in the

:05:32.:05:34.

morning. The cloud will increase as the day goes on and there will be

:05:35.:05:38.

the risk of some showers which have the potential to be heavy. Decent

:05:39.:05:42.

spells of dry weather as well and temperatures not doing too badly

:05:43.:05:45.

either. Tuesday looks as though it will be turning wet.

:05:46.:05:49.

Congratulations too to Keyworth's Sam Oldham, who has taken silver in

:05:50.:05:53.

the high bar at the European Gymnastics Championships. More on

:05:54.:05:56.

that, and from me, later than usual, at 10:55.

:05:57.:06:09.

Good evening. Some of us had a pretty good soaking. It downpours

:06:10.:06:17.

around with thunder and lightning. It wasn't so bad everywhere. The

:06:18.:06:22.

satellite picture across the Midlands, East Anglia and the south

:06:23.:06:26.

coast, the Isle of Wight. A beautiful end to the day. You can

:06:27.:06:31.

see further west and north and that is where the storm clouds will

:06:32.:06:35.

remain. Most of England through the cause of the night

:06:36.:06:36.
