quality of care is still there. Newark used to have its own A but

:02:03.:02:07.

the NHS decision to close it a few years ago has been hugely

:02:08.:02:08.

controversial. People are ddeply controversial. People are deeply

:02:09.:02:14.

worried about the downgrading of the A here. Labour's pledging to have

:02:15.:02:21.

48 hour access to GPs. That is good for health services but it hs also

good for the hospital as well stop you have people coming to the

:02:43.:02:50.

We need more doctors and nurses working in the hospital providing

the service we all need. It is an issue for the Conservative

always hard work. I was elected in a by`election so we take nothing and

:03:09.:03:14.

nobody for granted. It was market day in Newark today the weather was

:03:15.:03:18.

so awful there were more TV crews and politicians than shoppers. It

:03:19.:03:23.

may have been unseasonably cold but in new work it is getting

:03:24.:03:27.

politically hot and it is the issue of the NHS that is turning up the

:03:28.:03:28.

of the NHS that is turning tp the temperature.

:03:29.:03:34.

And here's the full list of candidates standing in the Newark

And there's been more polithcal drama in the region, a high`profile

:03:39.:03:46.

casualty at the helm of one of our biggest local authorities.

:03:47.:03:50.

Labour's Paul Bayliss, who led Derby City Council, has been dropped

:03:51.:03:54.

His former deputy, Ranjit B`nwait, is now expected to take control

:03:55.:04:01.

A chat in a dark the cafe after what has been called something of a coup.

:04:02.:04:16.

Ranjit Banwait and his supporters last night brought out their

:04:17.:04:20.

political knives to get him elected as the new leader of the ruling

:04:21.:04:21.

Labour group. Paul Bayliss hs a Labour group. Paul Bayliss is a

alternative not with my Labour councillors that the city of Derby.

I want to deliver quality, excellent public services. That is debating

walloped around the head with a saucepan. He had to apologise after

using an analogy on domestic violence. May I suggest you give the

:05:06.:05:11.

opportunity for counsellor Ranjit Banwait to withdraw what he said.

:05:12.:05:15.

The council chamber is an extraordinary place. Perhaps we need

:05:16.:05:20.

to get away from the kind of showmanship politics that goes on.

:05:21.:05:26.

You are ambitious. Is there a danger that that ambition can perh`ps

Next tonight, binge drinking by students. Two East Midlands

:06:31.:06:32.

universities are taking part in a Government`backed pilot project

:06:33.:06:35.

targeting alcohol abuse among undergraduates. The aim is to reduce

:06:36.:06:40.

booze fuelled crime and promote healthier lifestyles. One t`rget is

:06:41.:06:48.

the traditional student pub crawl. Geeta Pendse reports.

students is targeting the ctlture of binge drinking. We want to encourage

:07:10.:07:14.

them to take the right action. The union need to take the lead to make

:07:15.:07:19.

sure alcohol is a sensible part of life not an irresponsible p`rt of

:07:20.:07:24.

life. It is this kind of behaviour that the scheme wants to crack down

:07:25.:07:28.

on. Residents close to Loughborough University have complained hn the

:07:29.:07:29.

University have complained in the past about late night student

:07:30.:07:34.

deceptions. The university hs involved in the pilot. A lot of

:07:35.:07:38.

those issues are students coming home from nights out and being too

:07:39.:07:39.

loud. This is one of the thhngs that loud. This is one of the things that

:07:40.:07:42.

we will be looking at. We w`nt to we will be looking at. We want to

:07:43.:07:47.

make sure they are not as drunk as they aren't the consequences they

:07:48.:07:52.

can have. So, what do they plan to do? Ideas include promoting

:07:53.:08:00.

healthier lifestyle choices, tackling alcohol fuelled sttdent

:08:01.:08:01.

tackling alcohol fuelled student initiation ceremonies and ptt

:08:02.:08:07.

crawls, and creating alcohol free spaces. Its reaction from students

:08:08.:08:12.

have been mixed. I think it has got stage where you can't reverse it. It

:08:13.:08:20.

is a culture now. Some are still big drinkers and someone to get out of

:08:21.:08:24.

the way. Sometimes we have to organise things for people for

:08:25.:08:29.

drinkers and there definitely needs to be more ideas. There was behind

:08:30.:08:34.

the scheme hope it will promote healthy attitudes towards drinking
