And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale.

:00:00.:00:15.

First tonight, ambulance crdws in Leicester were prevented

:00:16.:00:18.

from reaching a man who'd collapsed in a shop, because of bollards

:00:19.:00:21.

While a paramedic tried to get through,

:00:22.:00:25.

the shopper was revived by ` young first aider, working in the shop.

:00:26.:00:29.

He says if the delay had been any longer, the man may have didd.

:00:30.:00:33.

Here's our Chief News reporter Quentin Rayner.

:00:34.:00:36.

Shortly after 2pm yesterday afternoon a man in his seventies

:00:37.:00:38.

collapsed with a suspected heart attack in a shop on high Street.

:00:39.:00:42.

Staff member and trained first aider, 24`year`old

:00:43.:00:45.

Scott Marshall, carried out CPR for real for the first time.

:00:46.:00:49.

I saw the gentleman collapse on the floor by these army tunics.

:00:50.:00:53.

I immediately checked for a pulse, a sign of life `

:00:54.:00:56.

So I immediately started chest compression and after about five or

:00:57.:01:00.

His colleague dialled 999 immediately and was in constant

:01:01.:01:04.

Within minutes, a paramedic arrived but could not get past

:01:05.:01:09.

the automatic traffic bollards into the pedestrianised zond.

:01:10.:01:12.

BBC Radio Leicester's Martin Ballard witnessed her frustration.

:01:13.:01:16.

As I approached up the high street, I could see she was getting really

:01:17.:01:20.

She was trying to speak to him through the intercom

:01:21.:01:23.

and street cleansing workers were punching in codes, but no avail

:01:24.:01:26.

So for a good five to ten minutes she was sat here with nowhere to go.

:01:27.:01:30.

After the paramedic finally got through, she called an ambulance.

:01:31.:01:35.

But the crew had no luck and had to park in the market and walk to

:01:36.:01:40.

I was very cross when it came, because obviously, they had to

:01:41.:01:44.

In a statement, the city council told us thdre had

:01:45.:01:52.

been a temporary fault with the keypad at these bollards.

:01:53.:01:55.

It has been reset and is working normally.

:01:56.:01:57.

All the emergency services are going to be contacted with

:01:58.:02:01.

the up`to`date passcodes is to make sure they can get through.

:02:02.:02:04.

But a common complaint is that when you press the call button,

:02:05.:02:10.

At this time exactly a week from now, the polls will have just

:02:11.:02:22.

closed in the much`anticipated Newark parliamentary by`election.

:02:23.:02:24.

Today, it was the turn of Green Party leader Natalie Bennett

:02:25.:02:27.

And she had a tough message for energy firms hoping to dxploit

:02:28.:02:31.

Here's our Political Editor John Hess.

:02:32.:02:34.

This is no tourist sightseehng visit to Newark Castle.

:02:35.:02:37.

Greens leader Natalie Bennett has ambitions

:02:38.:02:39.

for her party to scale the political ramparts of this constituency and

:02:40.:02:43.

I think we can be confident of a strong showing in this by`election.

:02:44.:02:49.

We had a strong showing in the East Midlands and around the country.

:02:50.:02:53.

We all had a strong local election result, including Solihull,

:02:54.:02:57.

not far from here, where we are now the opposition on the council.

:02:58.:03:03.

The party's candidate David Kirwen represents NHS staff

:03:04.:03:05.

But after the Euro elections, can the Greens be considered just

:03:06.:03:10.

In the European elections in East Midlands, the Greens polled

:03:11.:03:16.

just under 6%, finishing fotrth and beating the Liberal Democrats.

:03:17.:03:19.

Could they build on that in the by`election?

:03:20.:03:23.

In the Euro elections, the Greens supported anti`fracking

:03:24.:03:26.

protesters who set up a camp near a proposed shale gas drilling

:03:27.:03:29.

site on the northern edge of this Nottinghamshire constituency.

:03:30.:03:33.

The Green party favours a b`n on fracking.

:03:34.:03:36.

This is because the fact is, first of all,

:03:37.:03:38.

we have to leave at least 50% of our known fossil fuel reserves

:03:39.:03:42.

in the ground if we are going to avoid catastrophic climate change.

:03:43.:03:45.

And so we should not be looking for more.

:03:46.:03:47.

But there is also grave and rightful concern about local

:03:48.:03:50.

environmental impacts ` certain ones including lorry movements

:03:51.:03:52.

and water use, but also risks of spillages, risks of disasters.

:03:53.:03:56.

So will the Greens leave more than a passing impression

:03:57.:03:59.

on the Conservative's grip of the constituency?

:04:00.:04:02.

And here's the list of 11 candidates standing in the

:04:03.:04:12.

Polling takes place on June the 5th ` that's next Thursday.

:04:13.:04:20.

And finally, Del Boy ` Peckham's finest ` today sw`pped

:04:21.:04:23.

He was here to talk about his love of flying.

:04:24.:04:27.

Sir David Jason is, in fact, an experienced pilot and is supporting

:04:28.:04:30.

a scheme to help air cadets learn to fly, whatever the weather.

:04:31.:04:34.

Arriving at RAF Syerston in Newark, the pilot Sir David Jason.

:04:35.:04:43.

Of course, as an actor, he is most famous for Open @ll Hours

:04:44.:04:47.

He was there to meet RAF yotngsters who use Syerston and want to learn

:04:48.:04:59.

to fly unpowered gliders and powered ones like this Vigilant

:05:00.:05:05.

He has come to hand over a cheque from an RAF charitable trust for

:05:06.:05:09.

Get off the television, get off the iPhones and the iPad.

:05:10.:05:16.

Sometimes when the weather is bad, a flight simulator will help to

:05:17.:05:26.

Then it was time to try to Vigilant simulator himself.

:05:27.:05:33.

People know you as an actor, I don't think many knew you were a pilot.

:05:34.:05:38.

Some things we have to keep to ourselves, as it were.

:05:39.:05:42.

I used to fly, many years ago I used to fly gliders.

:05:43.:05:45.

It was the cheapest way I could get to throw myself into the air

:05:46.:05:51.

It was a way to fulfil my love of flying.

:05:52.:05:56.

More recently somebody challenged me and said the most difficult thing to

:05:57.:06:01.

fly was a helicopter and would I try and learn to fly one of those.

:06:02.:06:05.

It says Trotter's Independent traders on the side.

:06:06.:06:13.

If you want any hooky gear, you know where to come.

:06:14.:06:18.

Always up for a challenge, Sir David successfully landed

:06:19.:06:20.

That's your news, so, it's goodbye from me.

:06:21.:06:36.

But with your weather now, here's Kaye.

:06:37.:06:44.

It is in pretty cold, cloudher miserable all day. But things are

:06:45.:06:50.

slowly improving over the next 24`hour is also. The rain whll

:06:51.:06:51.

24`hour is also. The rain will eventually fizzle out so it'll be a

:06:52.:06:55.

dry and hopefully a bit brighter later in the day. We still have a

:06:56.:06:58.

fewer spots of rain are that the moment, they will fade away late in

:06:59.:07:02.

the night, so we drive out through tonight. Quite a lot of clotd again

:07:03.:07:04.

tonight. Quite a lot of cloud again and I will hope the night, so we

:07:05.:07:05.

drive out through tonight. Puite a drive out through tonight. Quite a

:07:06.:07:08.

lot of cloud again and that will be temperatures up, so not longer than

:07:09.:07:11.

ten or 11 Celsius. Tomorrow morning, most of the starting of dry. There

:07:12.:07:12.

will be one or two showers `cross will be one or two showers across

:07:13.:07:15.

eastern parts, but these will fade away late on in the day. Hopefully,

:07:16.:07:18.

there will be some breaks in the cloud later, too. We have got

:07:19.:07:24.

lighter winds tomorrow, so will feel a bit warmer with highs of around 15

:07:25.:07:26.

a bit warmer with highs of `round 15 or 16 degrees.

:07:27.:07:29.

In a few moments we will have a full national forecast, but for now,

:07:30.:07:36.

Good evening. Most of us look like ending the week on a dry note. Some

:07:37.:07:42.

of us end it today on a particularly wet note. Notably across parts of

:07:43.:07:47.

south-west England and up into the Midland, a line of vicious storms

:07:48.:07:52.

and thunder in there too. They have been spreading further west in parts

:07:53.:07:57.

of Wales and southern counties. They'll tend to fade away the rest

:07:58.:08:01.

of the night, but one or two lingering on. Most other places

:08:02.:08:06.

having a quiet night. Cloud and mistiness out there.

:08:07.:08:10.

Across the glens of northern Scotland, temperatures will get well

:08:11.:08:13.

down into single fir. But for most of the rest of us, a relatively mild

:08:14.:08:18.

night staying in double digits. One or two showers from word go across

:08:19.:08:21.

the south-west which will be the focus for any showers tomorrow.

:08:22.:08:24.

There won't be that many. Most of the country will have a quiet day,

:08:25.:08:27.

albeit rather cloudy. Through the afternoon, a snapshot,
