It is claimed paramedics couldn't get past these automated bollards.

:00:20.:00:26.

It is a matter of life and death. Plus, driving home the dangers of

:00:27.:00:36.

drinking and driving. Also tonight, Carl Froch speaks of

:00:37.:00:42.

the human cost of his boxing career. If I could do it over again, I

:00:43.:00:46.

probably wouldn't. People don't understand the sacrifices you make.

:00:47.:00:52.

I should be demonstrating how to fly a day gliding and simulating

machine. Year`old I shall be. `` I shall be demonstrating.

were punching in codes, but to no avail. So she was sat here for five

:01:06.:02:32.

or ten minutes. After the paramedic got through, she

:02:33.:02:37.

had to park near the market and had to park near the market and

:02:38.:02:39.

walked the short with their equipment. Obviously they had to

:02:40.:02:48.

bring all their equipment, a chair, and so on, for the patient

:02:49.:02:53.

downstairs. In a statement the City Council told us there had been a

:02:54.:02:54.

fault with the today's load. If this was an opinion

:02:55.:08:15.

poll, which it is not, I would say that the Conservatives have won by a

:08:16.:08:22.

mile given the amount of literature they have got. And we have seen a

:08:23.:08:27.

lot of Cabinet ministers visiting, George Osborne was back in the patch

:08:28.:08:33.

today, I dare say the Prime Minister's chauffeur driver from

:08:34.:08:37.

Downing Street does not get just that `` does not need that now that

:08:38.:08:40.

any more because he will know the A`Z of Newark inside out. One

:08:41.:08:46.

candidate told me he had not seen as many parliamentarians in Newark

:08:47.:08:50.

since the civil war when Cromwell's Roundheads were besieging the city!

:08:51.:08:58.

The constituency is quite a size. Yes, it is a new style of

:08:59.:09:04.

constituency, the boundaries changed at the last election, it runs like a

:09:05.:09:12.

spine through Nottinghamshire, with the Newark there on the right`hand

:09:13.:09:19.

Bridgeford and bring them, `` and Bridgeford and bring them, `` and

:09:20.:09:27.

this weekend we are going to see all the parties actively campaigning,

:09:28.:09:32.

getting their people out. We will see more Cabinet ministers around

:09:33.:09:36.

the constituency this weekend. Labour are promising a mass canvas

:09:37.:09:39.

of the constituency, and UKIP will be there too.

:09:40.:09:40.

You will be busy! And here's the list

:09:41.:09:45.

of 11 candidates standing in the Polling takes place in a week's

:09:46.:09:53.

time, that's next Thursday. Police are being asked to

:09:54.:09:59.

investigate claims of intimidation in a row between

:10:00.:10:01.

local residents and the owners Over the past few months,

:10:02.:10:04.

a number of incidents have been reported to the local council

:10:05.:10:08.

in connection with Mallory Park. Last night new guidelines were

:10:09.:10:12.

agreed, limiting the owners to 92 noisy days ` and 20

:10:13.:10:15.

medium noise days ` per year. The Great Central Railway has missed

:10:16.:10:22.

out on ?10 million of funding The Railway put in a joint bid for

:10:23.:10:26.

the Heritage Lottery Fund money, along with Leicester City Council

:10:27.:10:32.

and York's National Railway Museum. The new museum would bring

:10:33.:10:36.

a number of historic steam trains to the city, and allow visitors to see

:10:37.:10:39.

them run on the They can bid for

:10:40.:10:43.

the money again later this year. We are confident we will get it. We

:10:44.:11:02.

have two strong partners in the National Railway Museum and

:11:03.:11:05.

Leicester City Council. They are keen as we are to see a museum in

:11:06.:11:10.

Leicestershire. It would be one of the biggest tourist attractions and

:11:11.:11:14.

one of the major ones and heritage railway in Europe.

:11:15.:11:17.

It may seem unusually early, but in parts of our region

:11:18.:11:20.

a police summer drink driving campaign is already under way.

:11:21.:11:23.

In Leicestershire they're worried that more drinkers will get

:11:24.:11:26.

behind the wheel as people gather to watch football's World Cup.

:11:27.:11:28.

So today they staged a graphic demonstration of the effects of

:11:29.:11:32.

Here's our social affairs correspondent Jeremy Ball.

:11:33.:11:41.

Imagine ending your night like this, being cut out of a crashed

:11:42.:11:48.

car. This is a demonstration of how fire crews have to deal with the

:11:49.:11:52.

consequences of drink`driving. Sometimes you cannot tell what kind

:11:53.:11:57.

of car it is, the metal tears like paper. We have the World Cup coming

:11:58.:12:03.

up, and there are extended licensing hours. So we are saying to people,

:12:04.:12:07.

go out and enjoy yourselves but do not drink and drive, leave your car

:12:08.:12:13.

at home and get a bus or taxi. But Michael York to take the risk

:12:14.:12:20.

and now he is in jail. He was drunk when he drove into a tree, killing

:12:21.:12:25.

two friends. Other local drivers have lost their own lives. One

:12:26.:12:32.

instance I went to, and driver was rejected from a vehicle on the

:12:33.:12:36.

vehicle ran on top of him. He was 3.5 times over the legal limit.

:12:37.:12:41.

Going to notify somebody they have lost a loved one, that is something

:12:42.:12:45.

some people never, ever comes to some people never, ever comes to

:12:46.:12:47.

terms with it. But it is not just the risk of a

:12:48.:12:53.

crash. Every month around 100 people fail breath tests in Leicestershire,

:12:54.:13:02.

and some lose their jobs. Drink drive campaigns are nothing

:13:03.:13:05.

new. They do it every Christmas, but they hope will `` that by putting on

:13:06.:13:11.

such a graphic demonstration here they can drive that message home.

:13:12.:13:16.

A big step forward for modern crime`fighting and a big

:13:17.:13:20.

The university that developed genetic fingerprinting has come up

:13:21.:13:23.

with a way of getting prints ` off paper.

:13:24.:13:26.

A scientist based at the University of Leicester has found

:13:27.:13:28.

a more efficient way of lifting prints from receipts and

:13:29.:13:31.

cash machine bills, evidence that was previously hidden from view.

:13:32.:13:36.

On a Monday morning nearly 30 years ago, a scientist at the University

:13:37.:13:43.

of Leicester revolutionised the fight against crime with the

:13:44.:13:47.

Now, at the same university, that fight continues.

:13:48.:13:54.

Dr Bond has created a specially tailored UV light source

:13:55.:13:57.

to see fingerprints on till receipts and cash machine statements that

:13:58.:14:01.

This particular technology, because it has no contact with

:14:02.:14:08.

the paper, doesn't rely on chemicals or anything like that.

:14:09.:14:10.

You are purely getting contrast between sweat deposit that is

:14:11.:14:15.

reacting with the dye in the paper, but ever so minutely not visible to

:14:16.:14:19.

the naked eye, and the background paper to help you

:14:20.:14:22.

The best thing about this new technology is that for

:14:23.:14:28.

the police it's quick and easy and it's relatively cheap to purchase.

:14:29.:14:32.

It should offer big advantage when you're looking

:14:33.:14:35.

It may not look as high`tech as a gadget that 007 would use,

:14:36.:14:42.

but Dr Bond's discovery could leave criminals feeling shaken

:14:43.:14:44.

Navtej Johal, BBC East Midlands today, Leicester.

:14:45.:14:50.

Del Boy takes flight Actor David Jason reveals his head

:14:51.:14:55.

Many years ago I used to fly gliders. It was the cheapest way I

:14:56.:15:11.

could get to throw myself into the air and get off the ground.

:15:12.:15:20.

And this week is all about events in the boxing ring.

:15:21.:15:24.

Colin's out and about to tell us more.

:15:25.:15:27.

Just over 48 hours to go until Nottingham's Carl Froch defends

:15:28.:15:30.

his world titles in Britain's biggest boxing match for decades.

:15:31.:15:33.

Today we're here at this club in Carlton with the man who trained

:15:34.:15:37.

Froch as a youngster and some of the fighters he's inspired.

:15:38.:15:44.

Carl himself has been going head`to`head with opponent George

:15:45.:15:53.

So the champion and challenger came face to face today at Wembley for a

:15:54.:16:09.

fight that is rewriting the boxing history books. Plenty of sparring

:16:10.:16:20.

between the two. The tension was tangible. Little wonder with so much

:16:21.:16:30.

at stake. Empty now. 80,000 will be here on Saturday night will stop it

:16:31.:16:39.

the biggest of Carl Frosch's career. He is a world champion fighter but a

:16:40.:16:46.

family man at heart. At the weekend I tried to get away from boxing. I

:16:47.:16:56.

tried to relax. One thing I can't do this close to the fight is eat. It's

:16:57.:17:02.

my daughters birthday today. Some lovely muffins. Ahead of the biggest

:17:03.:17:09.

fight of his career he invited us into Islam. `` into his home. Every

:17:10.:17:21.

single fight I'm lumped in the. And she's played a big part in my

:17:22.:17:27.

success. They are there for the rough times. Operations, injuries.

:17:28.:17:35.

Through the tears and the bad times as well as the good times. The

:17:36.:17:42.

rematch will set him up for life. If I could do it all again I probably

:17:43.:17:49.

wouldn't. It's been so hard. People don't understand the sacrifices. If

:17:50.:17:58.

I could go back and do it again, I would stick with the office job.

:17:59.:18:05.

Instead, it's been alive inside the ring both him and the family. Every

:18:06.:18:10.

time I watching, I can't wait until the bell rings. I give my home and

:18:11.:18:19.

the case. I don't have to worry until the next fight. Boxing is a

:18:20.:18:26.

selfish sport. When I'm fighting, it all just me will stop I'm not

:18:27.:18:33.

concerned about anybody else. If I get to rub wrap `` wrapped up in the

:18:34.:18:39.

emotion, I wouldn't be up to do what I do. I don't want to turn my back

:18:40.:18:49.

on it. I'm still enjoying it. I'm still able to get out of bed, put my

:18:50.:18:55.

socks on. When you can't put your socks on, that's when to turn it in.

:18:56.:19:02.

For now, settling scores is his focus. All the Sammy `` family

:19:03.:19:12.

support adds up to me doing my best. I'm proud of myself. I couldn't have

:19:13.:19:23.

done it on my own though. He says he is fighting for his legacy. Interest

:19:24.:19:27.

in this match has reached epic scale. We will be there.

:19:28.:20:17.

Unbelievable excitement. Set up website you date. Mail is known to

:20:18.:20:28.

many people in Derby. He is part of the club that got promotion seven or

:20:29.:20:36.

eight years ago. Most importantly he is a hugely successful businessman.

:20:37.:20:49.

The good thing about Derby, County is it in a strong position. It

:20:50.:20:55.

doesn't have to panic. We'll make the decisions when they are needed

:20:56.:21:03.

to be made. Season ticket tales are nearly

:21:04.:21:16.

20,000. So back to the event that everyone is talking about. The

:21:17.:21:22.

boxing. This is really where it started. You are responsible for the

:21:23.:21:29.

Phoenix boxing club. How proud you of what Kyle has done. Extremely

:21:30.:21:38.

proud. Could you all see it? I don't think you can. But there were signs

:21:39.:21:42.

he had power and he had good footwork. Let's move on. You watched

:21:43.:21:53.

him come through. How important was this place in steering his career?

:21:54.:21:59.

Very important. He started here very young. System very well and supports

:22:00.:22:08.

the lads here. He'll do it this time. He'll not make the same

:22:09.:22:14.

mistakes as before. Let's talk to some of the young boxers. You going

:22:15.:22:25.

be watching? Definitely. How inspiring is it? Very inspiring. It

:22:26.:22:37.

gives us something to aim for. Again to finish off with Eton. I you next?

:22:38.:22:51.

I don't know, but I will try to be. It's absolutely brilliant, it was

:22:52.:22:56.

doing. They have the flags out for Carl and we will sort or team all

:22:57.:22:57.

the way. Del Boy, Peckham's finest,

:22:58.:23:06.

today swapped South London And he was here to talk

:23:07.:23:10.

about his love of flying.Yes, Sir David Jason is, in fact, an

:23:11.:23:15.

experienced pilot and is supporting a scheme to help air cadets learn to

:23:16.:23:19.

fly, whatever the weather. Arriving here, the pilot is Sir

:23:20.:23:37.

David Jason. Of course, as an actor he is most famous for open all hours

:23:38.:23:39.

and only fools and horses. He was there to meet youngsters in

:23:40.:23:58.

the RAF. They fly powered gliders and underpowered.

:23:59.:24:04.

Get off the television, get off their phones. We're really

:24:05.:24:15.

starstruck. But he's so easily to relate to. A fight slick simulator

:24:16.:24:37.

will help. `` a flight simulator. I've flown faster things missing in

:24:38.:24:41.

my back garden. Not many people knew you were a parrot? Some things we

:24:42.:24:48.

have to keep to ourselves. I used to fly for many years. I used to fly

:24:49.:24:53.

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

:24:54.:25:01.

air and get off the ground. I could fulfil my love of flying. The most

:25:02.:25:07.

difficult thing to fly is a helicopter. I was challenged to try.

:25:08.:25:13.

It took me a long time but I've done it. Is it a yellow helicopter with

:25:14.:25:26.

trotters on the side? Yes it is. I don't have it here today because of

:25:27.:25:33.

the weather. Always up for a challenge, he successfully landed

:25:34.:25:42.

the simulator in a field. I brought it back safely. This boy is going to

:25:43.:25:45.

go a long way. Awful today. Cold and wet. He a

:25:46.:26:10.

soggy flower. Things are looking to improve in the next couple of days

:26:11.:26:17.

or so. The pressure will shift those weather front out of the way and

:26:18.:26:21.

take the rain away. I'm much better looking picture tomorrow. The odd

:26:22.:26:26.

patch of light rain but not as much today. The winds will be a lot

:26:27.:26:34.

lighter and it will be noticeably water `` warmer. Damp and drizzly

:26:35.:26:43.

into the evening. Most of that will fizzle out. We keep the cloud and

:26:44.:26:49.

the temperatures will be up. 10 Celsius is the lowest. Tomorrow,

:26:50.:26:57.

most of us starting off dry. We will see a little light rain in eastern

:26:58.:27:02.

part but that will fizzle out in the afternoon. Hopefully some

:27:03.:27:08.

brightness. Most of us staying quite cloudy. The temperatures will be up

:27:09.:27:16.

to around 15 or 16 Celsius. Into Saturday, not a lot in the way of

:27:17.:27:21.

change. A lot of cloud around but hopefully some brightness in the

:27:22.:27:25.

afternoon. Top temperature 19 Celsius. Uncertainty as far as

:27:26.:27:33.

Sunday goes. Not a bad weekend really.
