And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Geeta Pendse.
A woman who was abused by the same man over an eight year period says
she's now living in fear all over again.
Keith Williams, who was given FIVE life sentences at Derby Crown Court,
has just been told he's eligible to be released from prison. Simon Hare
The local paper called him a beast when he was jailed 15 years ago.
It's a description of Keith Williams that one of his victims agrees with.
This is a monster, not a man. He is not just a paedophile, here's a
rapist. He is violent. He is evil. He is just a monster. During his
sentence, he managed to get threatening messages to Joe. He will
say things like, tell him I'm ` tell her I'm working out at the gym, as
if to say I'm getting stronger. Tell her I'm coming. Tell her this isn't
over. But today, the authorities confirmed he has been given parole.
He should be released within the next two weeks. The abuse took place
over several years in a pub here on the edge of the Swadlincote in South
Derbyshire. It has since been demolished and since Williams was
convicted, Joe has been trying to rebuild her life. But she says
knowing that he is now eligible for release has made her fearful for the
future. He will not be able to contact Joe or even enter an
exclusion zone of about 20 miles around Swadlincote. But that hasn't
put her mind at rest. You are not talking about a law`abiding citizen,
you are talking about a monster, who lives by his own rules and believes
in his own lies. People need to be aware so they can stay vigilant and
stay safe because this man is very dangerous and whoever is responsible
for releasing him, well, they will be accountable when he re`offence.
The parole board says it only releases prisoners when they are
satisfied they no longer pose a risk. Unlike the newspaper has line,
that is not a view shared by Jo. ` headline.

He was targeted by members of a rival gang but two years on, one of
the suspects still hasn't been caught. That suspect is a man called
Palmer, who grew up and went to school in Nottingham but the police
believe he is now in hiding in Kingston, Jamaica. It was the
country where he was born. Now, detectives are offering a reward of
$1 million Jamaican, that is more than ?5,000, for information leading
to his arrest. This is the murder of a young man that was assassinated in
a car park. It is really important that for the benefit of people in
Nottingham, but specifically the Kinsey's family, we bring everyone
to justice if we possibly can. Police in Jamaica have already tried
to find him in response to an international arrest warrant.
Believe he was part of a gang that killed McKenzie. His friend has
already been found guilty of firing the gun. He will serve 34 years in

are taking guns onto the streets of Nottingham and shooting people. The
man may not have done what he did that night if he had not had that

substantial sum of money up for his arrest. It is a real incentive for
someone to turn him in. leader of Derby City Council.
This evening the Labour party in Derby held an AGM which voted off
Paul Bayliss. Ranjit Banwait was voted in as the new party leader and
will be the council leader until an Next, what will the result of the
European elections mean for the next big political contest? That's the
question on the minds of party In the era of spin doctors, it's
almost reassuring that there is scope for something as old`fashioned
as interesting meeting. Tonight, the representatives of the main parties
have been open to questions and answers from some of the voters who
will be voting for their new MP in just over a week's time. There were
questions on East Midlands Hamblin 's response times, the degrading of
the hospital services, the rail connections. Europe hardly got a
look in. The by`election is proving to be a crucial one. David Cameron
is investing a lot of personal capital in winning this by`election
for the Conservatives. More... Ed Miliband is visiting the hospital
tomorrow. William Hague will be here, together with the deputy
leader of UKIP. A lot of big hitters are coming here. It's another
indication of why the result of this by`election is so crucial.
It has been a complete contrast this week compared with last week. We've
picked up a cool easterly wind and that will bring in some showery rain
over the next couple of days. It will also continue to make it feel
quite chilly. There will be a few showers around this evening. We will
be keeping the temperatures up to night so the cloud, wind and rain
will hold those temperatures up. Tomorrow morning, we will start off
with this rain. It will become more patchy as we head into the
afternoon. It will stay cloudy and quite windy. Fairly disappointing
temperatures. From the Outlook, it looks as though we will stay quite
showery on Thursday with things slowly improving towards the end of
the week. That's it from Thursday and then it becomes drier
with sunshine by the weekend. If you've been sat at home with
miserable Mayweather today wondering why on earth we didn't go abroad for
half term week, we are just going to add insult to injury because people
have been basking in some sunshine across southern Spain. Fairly
overcast skies in Paris but nevertheless, still 17 degrees.
Across eastern England it was cold, 13 degrees with persistent rain.
Better across the north-west Highlands. The reason for the cloud
and rain was this frontal system, rather breezy as well. The rain
continues through the night, some a bit heavy to the east of the
Pennines. Another miserable day in prospect particularly for eastern
