Dominic Heale and me, Anne Davies. Tonight:

:00:08.:00:10.

The teenage neo`Nazi who buhlt lethal bombs and fantasised

:00:11.:00:11.

about mass murder. Here we go. Michael Piggin `dmitted

:00:12.:00:25.

making bombs and recorded chilling videos threatening to kill Muslims.

:00:26.:00:30.

We are against the Muslim invasion of our country.

Welcome to Friday's programle. First tonight, a teenage

:01:10.:01:13.

neo`Nazi who built lethal bombs has been cleared of terrorism.

:01:14.:01:18.

After deliberating for a fortnight, a jury failed to agree on

:01:19.:01:21.

whether Michael Piggin was preparing to copy the Columbine High School

:01:22.:01:25.

massacre as part of a deadly attack on his home town of Loughborough.

:01:26.:01:36.

However, the Old Bailey heard that Piggin admitted stockpiling weapons

:01:37.:01:39.

and filming threats to kill Muslims. He'll be sentenced for a series

:01:40.:01:41.

of separate explosives and weapons offences next month.

:01:42.:01:42.

and weapons offences next month Piggin pleaded guilty to testing

:01:43.:01:44.

petrol bombs that were stored petrol bombs that were stored

:01:45.:01:52.

in his bedroom. He was making pipe bombs too,

:01:53.:01:55.

a weapon that was used in Northern Ireland.

:01:56.:01:57.

And he built improvised explosive devices,

:01:58.:02:01.

a weapon of choice in Afghanistan. Tonight, a senior detective tells

:02:02.:02:02.

this programme that those improvised this programme that those ilprovised

:02:03.:02:06.

bombs could still have killed people in Loughborough,

:02:07.:02:08.

as our social affairs correspondent, Jeremy Ball, reports.

:02:09.:02:16.

This is a crossbow. Just got it Michael Piggin was obsessed with

:02:17.:02:29.

weapons, guns, explosives. This is footage of him testing Molotov

:02:30.:02:34.

cocktails behind the leisure centre, cocktails behind the leisurd centre,

:02:35.:02:38.

one of a string of home`made videos found by the police. We tre`t this

:02:39.:02:43.

very seriously indeed. Anything of this type where a person is putting

:02:44.:02:48.

together items such as improvised explosive device, one has to assume

:02:49.:02:53.

that they can prove fatal if handled incorrectly and if someone has a

:02:54.:02:56.

particular mindset to use them, it can result in the loss of lhfe.

:02:57.:03:00.

particular mindset to use them, it can result in the loss of life. The

can result in the loss of lhfe. The terrorism investigation was prompted

:03:01.:03:04.

by a search of an macro's home, but it was the last thing policd

:03:05.:03:11.

expected. They came here to look for a knife he used to threaten local

:03:12.:03:14.

schoolboys and they were horrified by what they found. In his bedroom,

:03:15.:03:18.

a swastika flag on the wall and a copy of Hitler's book. Plastered

with newspaper cuttings abott with newspaper cuttings abott

discovered an arsenal of weapons, a discovered an arsenal of weapons, a

large collection of powerful airguns, a machete, partly built

:03:40.:03:45.

pipe bombs. My daughter's bddroom is directly facing the bedroom. My

:03:46.:03:49.

children are playing on the front, next door. Even if this guy had made

:03:50.:03:53.

a mistake and had an accident with these bombs, we are running such a

:03:54.:04:00.

close vicinity. We would have all felt the effects. Terrifying. Really

:04:01.:04:09.

scared. We were so shocked. In this notebook, something more shocking.

:04:10.:04:13.

Michael Piggin had returned detailed plans to carry out an attack. He had

:04:14.:04:19.

plastered the covers with swastikas and English Defence League slogans.

:04:20.:04:23.

He heard swastika is in his jumper. He did not talk to many people. When

:04:24.:04:28.

it came to light, people were not that surprised. They assumed

:04:29.:04:35.

something was a bit wrong with him. The police found a document`ry about

:04:36.:04:38.

the two American students who carried out the notorious Columbine

:04:39.:04:46.

High School massacre. They killed 12 students and one teacher. Injured 23

:04:47.:04:50.

others and then turned the gun is on themselves. Michael Piggin was

:04:51.:04:56.

obsessed with those killings. In his notebook, they found a chilling

:04:57.:05:01.

sticks man sketch explaining how to attack his old school. He drew

:05:02.:05:07.

arrows, writing CO2 and pipd bombs in pockets. Above, he has put,

:05:10.:05:15.

insisted his plans were a fantasy that helped him cope with pdrsistent

:05:16.:05:17.

that helped him cope with persistent bullying and the jury could not

:05:18.:05:21.

reach a verdict. They heard he had a form of autism that had not been

:05:22.:05:26.

diagnosed. It is ready worrying. Still many people do not get

:05:27.:05:28.

diagnosed at the appropriate Still many people do not get

:05:29.:05:29.

diagnosed at the appropriate time. It is really important we phck up

:05:34.:05:36.

people of the UK, which are mosques and other targets,

:05:37.:06:12.

it is extremely worrying and I think the whole nation should be worried.

:06:13.:06:14.

Michael Piggin glorified thd leader Michael Piggin glorified the leader

of the English Defence Leagte. This demo was billed as a peaceful

:06:21.:06:22.

demo was billed as a peaceftl protest against militant Islam but

:06:23.:06:27.

Michael Piggin was obsessed with violence. One of the countrx's

:06:28.:06:29.

violence. One of the country's leading experts on far right

:06:30.:06:35.

extremism. Even though groups like the EDL publicly reject violence,

:06:36.:06:38.

they do give their supporters a set of narratives that might justify

:06:39.:06:43.

violence. In this case, you have a student who is displaying a strong

:06:44.:06:50.

fascination with weapons and far right ideological worldviews. It

:06:51.:06:53.

really is a no`brainer to refer right ideological worldviews. It

:06:54.:06:55.

really is a no`brainer to rdfer that individual to local police agencies

:06:56.:06:59.

individual to local police `gencies or counterterrorism officers. Almost

:07:00.:07:05.

20 people were named on his fitness. They were warned by the polhce they

:07:06.:07:07.

They were warned by the police they had been threatened. The jury was

:07:08.:07:11.

not convinced the threat was real `` on his hit list. Serious questions

:07:12.:07:16.

on his hit list. Serious qudstions have been raised about warning signs

:07:17.:07:21.

that should have been acted on. Our correspondent has been following

:07:22.:07:26.

this trial. Were any concerns raised about his behaviour? There had been

:07:27.:07:31.

a lot of complaints at his school about his extremist behaviour. We

:07:32.:07:32.

about his extremist behaviotr. We are not allowed to identify the

:07:33.:07:36.

school. We heard during the trial from one of his teachers who

:07:37.:07:39.

described how Michael Piggin asked him which gun he would like to be

:07:40.:07:45.

shot with. There are formal processes for referring concerns

:07:46.:07:47.

like that through the Prevent programme. The police were never

:07:48.:07:51.

told about Michael Piggin and the school told us it is becausd the

:07:52.:07:53.

school told us it is because the complaints it received one nothing

:07:54.:07:56.

out of the ordinary and did not indicate what emerged in the trial.

:07:57.:07:59.

indicate what emerged in thd trial. This is the second time a jury has

:08:00.:08:01.

This is the second time a jtry has failed to come to a verdict. The

:08:02.:08:05.

case has been going on for lonths. Why has it been so, located? The

had to decide if he was serious had to decide if he was serhous

have been dropped. That is also why have been dropped. That is `lso why

:08:38.:08:41.

`` less serious offences. Jeremy Ball, reports.

replica of King Richard III's spine. And why they are celebrating 175

:08:50.:09:01.

years of train travel between Nottingham and RB.

:09:02.:09:06.

The whistle also signifies the end of a soggy week. What is in store

:09:07.:09:14.

for the weekend? Join me for the details later in the progralme.

:09:15.:09:18.

Next tonight, the phased closure of Thoresby Colliery

:09:19.:09:20.

Redundancy notices have been sent to almost half the workforce

:09:21.:09:25.

Nearly all the redundancies are compulsory.

:09:26.:09:29.

The Union of Democratic Mineworkers say there's still a way

:09:30.:09:33.

of keeping it open for another four years, but UK Coal

:09:34.:09:36.

expected. UK Coal had announced them last month. All of a sudden, the

:09:37.:09:59.

eventual closure of the mine is eventual closure of the mind is

:10:00.:10:05.

becoming more of a reality. As one worker put it, he said, it was

:10:06.:10:12.

gut`wrenching. The majority of the redundancies will be mine workers

:10:13.:10:14.

who develop new col fleeces. Managers, officials and clerical

:10:15.:10:17.

workers will also be receiving workers will also be receivhng

the managed closure. `` ?10 million. It is dependent on it being matched

you. One of our major hospitals is to

chronic parking problems. Queues for the main car park

:13:35.:13:38.

spent on improvements to schools The county council says there is

:13:39.:13:41.

a huge backlog of school repairs Priority is being given to

:13:42.:13:46.

buildings in the worst condition. The proposals will be discussed by

:13:47.:13:49.

the authority's cabinet on Monday. A man who was injured

:13:50.:14:00.

after being trampled by cattle says clearer warning signs need to be put

:14:01.:14:03.

up to tell walkers of the dangers. Robert Tatler was attacked on the

:14:04.:14:06.

same day that another man was killed Back at home

:14:07.:14:10.

after a four`day stay in hospital, but Robert Tatler from Derbyshire

:14:11.:14:16.

is not yet back to full strdngth. He was attacked by cattle while out

:14:17.:14:22.

walking his dogs near Ashbotrne They very rapidly all got up

:14:23.:14:27.

and all charged towards me, I turned around and waved

:14:28.:14:31.

my arms and made a lot of noise. Didn't make any difference.

:14:32.:14:37.

They came very close. The black cow in particular just

:14:38.:14:41.

turned Luckily, I was wearing a

:14:42.:14:43.

good`quality rucksack with a steel frame and I thhnk

:14:44.:14:47.

that absorbed a lot of the impact. But he has been left with

:14:48.:14:51.

a large swelling on his stolach And another walker, a holidaymaker

:14:52.:14:56.

from Cornwall, was fatally hnjured on the same day and on the same

:14:57.:15:00.

farm. I gather it was a different herd

:15:01.:15:03.

of cows. I think it just shows how

:15:04.:15:06.

unpredictable cows with very young calves, and these were very young,

:15:07.:15:09.

can be, more than I'd ever realised. You need to be told that thdy can be

:15:10.:15:13.

dangerous and attack you I would be prepared, if I h`ve to

:15:14.:15:16.

divert from my footpath, to do that on a temporary basis, rather than

:15:17.:15:21.

get trashed or possibly killed. Farmers often do put up signs, but

:15:22.:15:25.

they say walkers need to be aware of the dangers during calving season,

:15:26.:15:29.

especially if they have dogs. Keep them under close control,

:15:30.:15:34.

keep them on a lead, preferably. If you feel threatened

:15:35.:15:37.

by the cattle, let the dog go. But also be mindful

:15:38.:15:41.

when you enter the field of where the cattle are and do not

:15:42.:15:45.

necessarily follow the footpath But Robert says that is exactly

:15:46.:15:48.

what he did when he was att`cked. He will be taking even more care

:15:49.:15:53.

when out walking his dogs Scientists at the University

:15:54.:15:56.

of Leicester may have proved once and for all that Shakespeard's

:15:57.:16:08.

portrayal of Richard III was wrong. They've put together a 3D replica

:16:09.:16:11.

of the former king's spine. It shows he had severe scolhosis,

:16:12.:16:14.

but he wasn't a hunchback. For years, this bent over, twisted

:16:15.:16:17.

figure has been a common portrayal But now scientists at the University

:16:18.:16:27.

of Leicester have used modern After being dug up

:16:28.:16:33.

in a council carpark, the former king's bones were put through a CT

:16:34.:16:39.

scanner and printed out in 3`D. The result is an exact replhca

:16:40.:16:45.

of Richard's crooked spine. Bruno, the big question,

:16:46.:16:50.

was Richard III a hunchback? Scoliosis is a separate

:16:51.:16:53.

condition to being a hunchback. He has an S shaped curved in

:16:54.:16:59.

his spine whereas a hunchback would But the degree of the curve is

:17:00.:17:03.

so striking. Classically,

:17:04.:17:09.

scoliosis of this type is not But as he got older

:17:10.:17:14.

and had this degenerative change, he would have suffered from

:17:15.:17:19.

an arthritic back and some pain Could his disfigured spine have

:17:20.:17:23.

helped cause his death at Bosworth? I think most doctors would recommend

:17:24.:17:26.

a patient with scoliosis like this But a well`trained soldier with

:17:27.:17:29.

scoliosis would probably be more effective than

:17:30.:17:34.

a badly`trained soldier without scoliosis. In fact, this would have

:17:35.:17:38.

been inconvenient to him, Did Shakespeare do Richard

:17:39.:17:42.

III a bit of a disservice? I would say definitely yes,

:17:43.:17:48.

but it makes a more interesting play. While this solves the mystery

:17:49.:17:51.

of Richard's twisted spine, whether his personality was as

:17:52.:17:54.

twisted will remain Shakespdare s Yes, artistic interpretation is the

:17:55.:18:11.

key. What do we know?

:18:12.:18:15.

A bit of a glimpse into the life of a real King Richard.

:18:16.:18:19.

You might have to battle the a real King Richard.

:18:20.:18:20.

You might have to battle thd weather You might have to battle thd weather

this weekend. The forecast later. Fingers crossed for a good weekend.

:18:24.:18:27.

Today we passed a signific`nt milestone in the history of the

:18:28.:18:30.

It's exactly 175 years since the first train linked

:18:31.:18:35.

In Derby today there were celebrations to mark

:18:36.:18:38.

its transformation from a slall industrial Victorian town into a

:18:39.:18:42.

Carolyn Moses joined the festivities.

:18:59.:19:05.

the first train steamed is way from Nottingham into the city and

:19:06.:19:11.

Derby's railway heritage was born. Queen Victoria was less than two

:19:12.:19:15.

years into her reign and today a little bit of that history was

:19:16.:19:20.

relived. Now this part of the East Midlands has the largest number of

:19:21.:19:22.

Midlands has the largest nulber of rail companies in the world. Over

:19:23.:19:26.

120 companies supply businesses to the rail industry, 25,000 people are

:19:27.:19:30.

region. The railways are critical worth of economic value to the

region. The railways are critical to Derby and Derby is critical to the

:19:39.:19:39.

railways. You cannot celebr`te it railways. You cannot celebr`te it

:19:40.:19:44.

properly without recreating it. It is time to leave for Derby. The

:19:45.:19:54.

route may be the same, but the views have changed since 1839. I think it

:19:55.:19:59.

is an opportunity for us to celebrate Derby's train makhng

:20:00.:20:00.

capacity. We want to make sure that capacity. We want to make sure that

our heritage built around train making gets passed on to the future

for the UK. We are a way `` railway town. It is not the only

:20:18.:20:23.

commemorative event. Others are planned. As Derby celebrates its

place very much at the heart of the UK's railway network and history.

I think platform to full sports. I think platform to full sports

:20:39.:20:43.

Where else would the team be tonight but at Wembley for the way hn?

This is it. The final time Nottingham's world champion Carl

:20:50.:20:55.

Froch check will meet the young pretender George Groves before this
