:00:00.:00:14.

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

:00:15.:00:16.

Next tonight, the inspirational message

:00:17.:00:20.

a young girl dying from cancer left hidden behind her bedroom mirror.

:00:21.:00:23.

Athena Orchard from New Parks in Leicester died last week.

:00:24.:00:26.

It was only afterwards that her parents found her message to them.

:00:27.:00:30.

Dean Orchard recalls the last time he held his daughter.

:00:31.:00:45.

Despite operations and chemotherapy nothing could be done.

:00:46.:00:56.

Dean and Caroline knew that Athena had been writing on the back

:00:57.:00:59.

of her bedroom mirror, but they only found out what she had

:01:00.:01:02.

"Every day is special, make the most of it.

:01:03.:01:06.

You could get a life`ending illness tomorrow."

:01:07.:01:09.

That what makes me think, did she know she was going to get ill?

:01:10.:01:14.

That just stands out to me because it's amazing.

:01:15.:01:21.

"It's not just about the happy ending, it's about the story."

:01:22.:01:26.

Having that mirror with that writing on feels like we still have

:01:27.:01:35.

Right down to the last minute she still

:01:36.:01:39.

She used to say to us "what's going to happen to you lot

:01:40.:01:46.

She also used to say "I'm glad it was me and not any of

:01:47.:01:53.

The Orchards are now trying to raise money for Athena's funeral,

:01:54.:01:58.

whilst taking comfort in their daughter's words.

:01:59.:02:00.

Athena finished her message by writing:

:02:01.:02:18.

William and Patricia Wycherley were allegedly killed by their daughter

:02:19.:02:23.

and son`in`law who wanted to get their hands on the couple's money.

:02:24.:02:27.

Buried in their back garden in Forest Town in Mansfield

:02:28.:02:35.

after being allegedly murdered on the May Day bank holiday of 1998.

:02:36.:02:38.

The prosecution say William Wycherley, then 85,

:02:39.:02:42.

and his wife Patricia, 63, were each shot twice in the bedroom.

:02:43.:02:47.

The alleged weapon was a .38 revolver.

:02:48.:02:50.

Their daughter Susan Edwards and her husband Christopher,

:02:51.:02:53.

It's claimed by the prosecution that they wanted the Wycherley's money.

:02:54.:04:22.

Will UKIP continue their promised political earthquake?

:04:23.:04:28.

Our political editor John Hess has been at the count in Newark.

:04:29.:04:31.

The count is being held in the rather splendid surroundings

:04:32.:04:35.

of the Dome Hall inside Kelham Hall, the headquarters of of Newark

:04:36.:04:38.

The spot itself is pretty historic, this is where Charles I

:04:39.:04:43.

surrenderred to Cromwell's parliamentary forces and certainly

:04:44.:04:46.

the parliamentary forces unleashed during this three`week

:04:47.:04:48.

It might not be on the scale of the 1640s but there's no denying

:04:49.:04:54.

the determination of the Prime Minister to win this

:04:55.:04:57.

That's because UKIP's Nigel Farage spoke and likened winning this

:04:58.:05:02.

parliamentary by`election as causing a political earthquate.

:05:03.:05:06.

The prime minister in tern was determined, he said,

:05:07.:05:09.

Well, the count is underway, we are expecting results sometime

:05:10.:05:13.

If there happens to be a recount we will have to wait

:05:14.:05:17.

Whatever happens we will have full analysis in breakfast news tomorrow.

:05:18.:05:25.

We will be live in Newark marketplace. Join me then.

:05:26.:05:30.

Nottingham's iconic Green's Windmill needs more than ?40,000 worth

:05:31.:05:34.

of repair work so its sails can continue turning.

:05:35.:05:42.

The city council says weather damage means the sails can't rotate without

:05:43.:05:45.

Supporters are now trying to find around ?8,000.

:05:46.:05:50.

The council says it can't meet the full cost of the work.

:05:51.:05:54.

A man from Leicester has created his very own cinema in a garden shed.

:05:55.:05:58.

He has spent ?12,000 converting the shed at the bottom

:05:59.:06:04.

of his garden into a fully operational 12`seater cinema.

:06:05.:06:07.

It's sound proofed and has been designed to mimic

:06:08.:06:10.

I would love to be working in the cinema now like I used to

:06:11.:06:20.

in the '50s, but I don't think that the wife would put up with me being

:06:21.:06:25.

So, I decided it's better to have my own cinema in the back garden and I

:06:26.:06:30.

can go in it every day if I want to without having divorce proceedings.

:06:31.:06:35.

Well, we'll be back first thing in the morning with the result of that

:06:36.:06:39.

But, in the meantime, here's Anna with the weather.

:06:40.:06:46.

We've had a fairly pleasant evening. Things aren't looking too

:06:47.:06:54.

bad tomorrow. It will be dry, but turning increasingly humid through

:06:55.:06:58.

the day. Through the evening and overnight tonight we have clear

:06:59.:07:06.

skies. Temperatures will drop away, a chilly night for June.

:07:07.:07:13.

Temperatures as low as five or six in spots. There are some clouds

:07:14.:07:21.

around, but we will see plenty of sunny spells into the afternoon

:07:22.:07:26.

tomorrow. High cloud starts to develop through the day. It will be

:07:27.:07:28.

fairly warm, 20 high as 24 degrees. Looking forward

:07:29.:07:41.

to the weekend, thundery showers. As you will have seen, I cannot promise

:07:42.:07:45.

you sunshine and blue skies, but I can promise warm. Warmer conditions

:07:46.:07:52.

will be growing up. The heat at the moment is across parts of Spain and

:07:53.:07:58.

south-west France. You can see the orange colour is developing. To the

:07:59.:08:03.

west we have low pressure. Winds
