This is East Midlands Today with Dominic Heale and me, Anne Davies.

:00:00.:00:00.

A murder trial hears how a couple were shot dead

:00:00.:00:08.

It is claimed the killers were the couple's own daughter and

:00:09.:00:21.

son`in`law. Their motive was money. Also tonight, the inspirational

:00:22.:00:26.

hidden messages left by a 15`year`old who died of cancer. It

:00:27.:00:32.

is about a happy ending, it is about the story. Plus, the former sprinter

:00:33.:00:39.

facing a new challenge with a little help from his friends. And, what is

:00:40.:00:45.

in yours shared. We meet the man who has converted his into a cinema.

:00:46.:00:52.

First tonight, a court's heard that a Mansfield couple were shot

:00:53.:00:57.

dead and then buried in their back garden, where their remains

:00:58.:01:01.

William and Patricia Wycherley were allegedly killed by their daughter

:01:02.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:13.

Mike O'Sullivan joins us now from Nottingham Crown Court.

:01:14.:01:17.

Mike, the prosecution opened its case today.

:01:18.:01:20.

The prosecution has taken the opportunity to outline the case on

:01:21.:01:35.

the first full day of evidence. They painted a picture of Susan and

:01:36.:01:39.

Christopher Edwards, the witch he 's and son`in`law, a picture painted as

:01:40.:01:46.

people with money troubles who benefited from their deaths and

:01:47.:01:53.

covered it up for 15 years. Buried in their back garden in Forest town

:01:54.:01:57.

in Mansfield, after being allegedly murdered in 1998 on the May Day bank

:01:58.:02:02.

holiday. The prosecution say William and Patricia were each shot twice in

:02:03.:02:10.

their bedroom. The alleged but weapon was a .38 revolver. William

:02:11.:02:15.

was placed on top of his wife in the garden grave. Their daughter Susan

:02:16.:02:19.

Edwards and her husband Christopher denied murder. It is claimed by the

:02:20.:02:23.

prosecution that they wanted their money. The court heard that the

:02:24.:02:29.

Edwards sent out Christmas cards supposedly from the pair from

:02:30.:02:33.

relatives, told neighbours they had moved away and got their pensions

:02:34.:02:38.

paid into an account that they controlled. In all, they got

:02:39.:02:44.

?245,000, including the sale of the house in 2005. The Edwards, it was

:02:45.:02:49.

claimed, were caught out by their own deception. They fled to France

:02:50.:02:55.

after the centenarian society wants to interview William, thinking he

:02:56.:03:00.

was nearing 100 years old. Running out of money, quit the Edwards

:03:01.:03:03.

artists own stepmother asking for help, admitted they had buried them.

:03:04.:03:10.

She contacted the police. The couple were arrested last October, when

:03:11.:03:12.

they returned by agreement to London. The bodies were discovered

:03:13.:03:23.

after 15 years in the garden. Has anything been said about the

:03:24.:03:28.

Edward's defence? They have driven an outline of it so they can

:03:29.:03:32.

distribute it. Susan Edwards say she was staying with her parents when

:03:33.:03:35.

her mother shot her father after an argument late at night. Then

:03:36.:03:42.

Patricia told Susan Edwards that she knew Mr `` her husband had abused

:03:43.:03:48.

Susan as a trial date of the Child. It was also said he hadn't had an

:03:49.:03:56.

relationship... It is claimed Susan Edwards shot her own mother.

:03:57.:04:00.

Christopher said he knew nothing about this until later on and only

:04:01.:04:04.

agreed to bury the bodies. The prosecution says money is at the

:04:05.:04:08.

centre of all of this. They dispute their version of this. Thank you.

:04:09.:04:13.

Next tonight, the grieving parents of a teenager

:04:14.:04:16.

who died from cancer have spoken of their pride after finding an

:04:17.:04:19.

inspirational message that she left hidden behind her bedroom mirror.

:04:20.:04:22.

Athena Orchard, from New Parks in Leicester, passed away last week.

:04:23.:04:26.

It was only afterwards that her parents found the note.

:04:27.:04:29.

They say, they'll treasure what she's written forever.

:04:30.:04:31.

They've been speaking to our reporter Helen Astle.

:04:32.:04:42.

It's the first time I had hoped in six months. Because of where her

:04:43.:04:50.

tumours were, they were so everywhere, I didn't know where,

:04:51.:04:55.

under here, around here, this site, her back. You can't do it. That was

:04:56.:05:02.

my heart. To for about an hour, I didn't want to let her go. Dean

:05:03.:05:11.

orchards recalls the last time he held his daughter. Athena died in

:05:12.:05:16.

her arms special to his arms, she had a form of bone cancer. Despite

:05:17.:05:22.

chemotherapy, nothing could be done. She was so beautiful, amazing.

:05:23.:05:29.

Special. Dean and Caroline new Athena was writing on the back of

:05:30.:05:33.

her bedroom mirror, or they only found out what she wrote after she

:05:34.:05:37.

had died. Every day is special, make the most of it. I wondered if she

:05:38.:05:46.

knew she was going to get ill. That stand out to me. It's amazing. Maybe

:05:47.:05:54.

it's not about the happy ending, it's about the story. I just find it

:05:55.:06:04.

or crew. It is also true. That mirror, with her writing, makes it

:06:05.:06:08.

feel like we still have a part of her. Right down to the last minute,

:06:09.:06:16.

she was happy about herself. She used to say, what will happen to

:06:17.:06:23.

you. When I have gone. She said I am dad it was me, not any of my sisters

:06:24.:06:28.

or brothers. The Orchards are now trying to raise money for their

:06:29.:06:34.

daughter's funeral and taking comfort in her words. She finished

:06:35.:06:39.

her message saying, there is no need to cry, I know you will be by my

:06:40.:06:41.

side. Coming up `

city's streets on weekend evenings. They've helped more than 10,000

:10:02.:10:05.

people across Nottingham over They've been using a room

:10:06.:10:09.

at the Malt Cross, but The Mayor of Leicester has revealed

:10:10.:10:14.

the council won't be continuing with a series of events

:10:15.:10:20.

which were announced after Sir Peter Soulsby had promised to

:10:21.:10:24.

deliver a bigger and better so`called "Plan B", after Leicester

:10:25.:10:29.

lost the title to Hull last year. From hoping, the UK City of Culture

:10:30.:10:50.

2017 is hollow. To heartbreak. Back in November, Lester was left to pick

:10:51.:10:54.

up the pieces of its defeat to rivals the City of Culture title.

:10:55.:10:59.

But the city and its mayor would find. They had a second plan and the

:11:00.:11:05.

loss would not deter them. There is a determination to show that we did

:11:06.:11:10.

not need the title. We can do it anyway. We can do it bigger and

:11:11.:11:14.

better. We don't need to wait to 2017. But seven months later and

:11:15.:11:21.

with a certain kings remain now definitely sitting in the said that

:11:22.:11:28.

no city, things have changed. Now we have the enormous ceremony

:11:29.:11:31.

officiated with King Richard III at the opening of a business centre

:11:32.:11:35.

firmed up July 26. There is, in Leicester, so many good things

:11:36.:11:39.

happening. We don't need a second plan. So it may not have won the

:11:40.:11:43.

title, but Leicester is hoping its current operator `` offering will be

:11:44.:11:49.

plenty to make it a city with lots of culture.

:11:50.:11:53.

Next tonight, a story of human courage

:11:54.:11:55.

Luke Ducille`Irons had to have his left leg amputated,

:11:56.:12:00.

after getting an infection caused by a new pair of shoes.

:12:01.:12:03.

But thanks to a charity which helps injured servicemen, the former tank

:12:04.:12:06.

commander is being given the help he needs to maintain his independence.

:12:07.:12:10.

It's probably the best thing that ever happened in my life, losing my

:12:11.:12:24.

leg. It's not perhaps what you expect to hear but it is heartening

:12:25.:12:29.

advice for Luke. He recently had to have his left leg amputated after an

:12:30.:12:34.

infection that caused in the most everyday of circumstances. A new

:12:35.:12:41.

pair of shoes took the skin of the top of my three toes. Then, been

:12:42.:12:47.

diabetic, it would not heal and became infected. As he also suffered

:12:48.:12:52.

a stroke if you years ago, his rehabilitation will be a tough fight

:12:53.:12:56.

for the former manager of the Jamaican boxing team and keen

:12:57.:13:01.

athlete. Many years ago I did a lot of sprinting 10.4 300. I have

:13:02.:13:08.

managed to get my head around it. lost a leg nine years ago in a road

:13:09.:13:33.

accident. He had to have begins at a surgery on his remaining leg. They

:13:34.:13:38.

came to see me and they helped me. When you have had a dramatic

:13:39.:13:41.

accident, you look at life quite a bit differently. I talking to Luke,

:13:42.:13:49.

and him talking to other members, he will feel a lot better in himself.

:13:50.:13:55.

Although the recovery can take a winding course, Steve says he hopes

:13:56.:13:59.

he and the staff at the War Derby Hospital Boston have looped able to

:14:00.:14:05.

walk a strong and straight line `` boreal.

:14:06.:14:09.

Just three hours left before the polling stations close in the Newark

:14:10.:15:32.

Patel is the leading run`scorer in Division One of the

:15:33.:15:36.

County Championship this season ` averaging nearly 60.

:15:37.:15:42.

One man who did make it into the test side is Stuart Broad.

:15:43.:15:45.

His appearance for Notts this week, confirming his return to fitness.

:15:46.:15:51.

And just one county game to mention, with Leicestershire having a crack

:15:52.:15:54.

at a result against Gloucestershire but running out of time.

:15:55.:16:06.

A quick word of congratulations for Derby County forward, Simon Dawkins,

:16:07.:16:16.

who scored his first international goal for Jamaica last night.

:16:17.:16:18.

He was making only his third start for the Reggae Boyz

:16:19.:16:21.

in the 2`all draw with Egypt, in a friendly at Brisbane Road.

:16:22.:16:24.

Duffield Squash Club's pair of world champions,

:16:25.:16:26.

Laura Massaro and Nick Matthew, both say, they're aiming for medals

:16:27.:16:29.

Nick is defending Commonwealth Champion and travels to

:16:30.:16:34.

the England team assembled there enormous expectations. The men

:16:35.:16:42.

especially dominated and are expected to do the same in Glasgow.

:16:43.:16:46.

You cannot take it the granted, being part of an England team. To

:16:47.:16:51.

make the end and's men's singles team you need to be the top ten in

:16:52.:16:55.

the world. It is tough just to make the teams. But it's Laura masala who

:16:56.:17:02.

could be really special. The reigning world champion knows just

:17:03.:17:04.

what is jumping dasher go possible for her. Confidence comes from

:17:05.:17:10.

winning a title like that and knowing it can never be taken away

:17:11.:17:17.

from you. I never risk confidence or arrogance because it is a fine line.

:17:18.:17:24.

This tea is cut key for Laura. Duffield is an amazing place to look

:17:25.:17:31.

at, every week I turned up when the match. An and there is a full packed

:17:32.:17:36.

out crowd of juniors wanting autographs. I think that is a real

:17:37.:17:40.

reflection of the strength of the moment. Just a PSL match on a

:17:41.:17:45.

Tuesday, we get so many people coming to watch it. England Squash

:17:46.:17:52.

is so healthy, two world championship the micro champions,

:17:53.:17:55.

young players coming through. I hope we can make the best of this

:17:56.:18:00.

generation. Now it's the Commonwealth. Every campaign of the

:18:01.:18:06.

Olympic recognition has failed, this is the moment the squash is ready

:18:07.:18:07.

mission in the sun. The Badminton squad has

:18:08.:18:08.

also just been announced. No surprise that it includes

:18:09.:18:10.

our own Chris and Gabby Adcock. I'm sure we'll be hearing

:18:11.:18:13.

from them soon. All this week we've been looking

:18:14.:18:16.

at how World War One affected And tonight we tell the story

:18:17.:18:19.

of how a Derby footballing legend found himself trapped in Germany `

:18:20.:18:24.

and show how Trent Bridge was transformed

:18:25.:18:28.

into a military hospital. So many heroic performances have

:18:29.:18:29.

been applauded from this pavilion over the years, but during the First

:18:30.:18:39.

World War, it was home to a different sort of hero. When war was

:18:40.:18:43.

declared in August 1914, Notts were playing Surrey at the Oval. The

:18:44.:18:46.

captain of the match was Arthur Carr. He received a

:18:47.:18:50.

telegram telling him he had to report to his depot. He

:18:51.:18:52.

decided to have an innings before he actually went off. We stayed there

:18:53.:18:57.

for one day, and then he went off to report to the depot. Cricket was

:18:58.:19:01.

stopped late in the month. There were more important battles to be

:19:02.:19:05.

won. W G Grace, the most famous cricketer who had ever lived, stood

:19:06.:19:09.

up and said to people it would be unpatriotic to play cricket, while

:19:10.:19:13.

the war was going on, so cricket When the wounded

:19:14.:19:18.

started coming home, Trent Bridge was requisitioned as a military

:19:19.:19:22.

hospital. This is the Long room in the main pavilion. It was built in

:19:23.:19:26.

1886. In 1914 and 1950s it was converted into a military hospital.

:19:27.:19:31.

There would have been 30 or 40 beds in this room alone, in total there

:19:32.:19:34.

were 200 beds in the hospital. The ladies

:19:35.:19:38.

pavilion was also used. 3500 patients went through in all.

:19:39.:19:56.

Six Nottinghamshire cricketers were killed in action, at many stayed at

:19:57.:20:01.

home as they were minors and cold with needed for the war effort. As

:20:02.:20:05.

the chav who left midway through the game to go to the war, a W Carr was

:20:06.:20:12.

mentioned in this report. He came home safely and resumed his career

:20:13.:20:17.

with knots. England's record goal`scorer had just retired from

:20:18.:20:21.

football in 1914 after leading Derby County to promotion. He was the most

:20:22.:20:26.

famous name in the game, the David Beckham of his day. He wanted to

:20:27.:20:30.

coach abroad. He was a great footballer, but is timing was

:20:31.:20:34.

terrible. He had just offered a job as a football coach in Berlin, three

:20:35.:20:39.

weeks later war was declared. By November 1914, he was interned in a

:20:40.:20:45.

camp. It was a concentration camp, but it was not a holiday camp. He

:20:46.:20:49.

said there were more mealtimes than meals. When they first went there,

:20:50.:20:55.

there were 5000 men from all over Germany who were rounded up and sent

:20:56.:21:00.

there. The statue today looks alchemy Derby dugout. Stands saying

:21:01.:21:07.

that Steve Bloomer is watching. They started a football league in the

:21:08.:21:12.

camp and it was based on the hutch they were in. `` heart. Each hut

:21:13.:21:20.

took the name of a football layer. Bloomer played the Tottenham Hotspur

:21:21.:21:24.

and his team used to with illegal the time. At the end of the war,

:21:25.:21:30.

Steve Bloomer came home to Derby went on to great excess as a coach

:21:31.:21:36.

Canada and Spain. His name is still sung before every game ``

:21:37.:21:40.

And if you want to hear more about how sport was affected

:21:41.:21:44.

by World War One ` go the BBC's World War At Home website and

:21:45.:21:48.

There you can hear more about Trent Bridge, and our local cricketers and

:21:49.:21:53.

Now come with us to a place where green fingers meet

:21:54.:22:04.

A man from Leicester has created a cinema in his garden ` for

:22:05.:22:12.

at the bottom of his garden, 76`year`old has a shared, but this

:22:13.:22:31.

is not where he keeps his tools. `` wrote shed. He spent thousands of

:22:32.:22:40.

pounds in installing a 12 seater cinema. I is the cinema! I would

:22:41.:22:44.

love to work in the cinema like I used to in a 1950s. But there be six

:22:45.:22:52.

nights a week. I decided it was better to have my own cinema in the

:22:53.:22:56.

back garden. I can go inside every day if I want to without divorced

:22:57.:23:03.

seedings! The decor has been designed to mimic a 1960s cinema.

:23:04.:23:09.

The seats have come from a cinema up the road. Unsurprisingly, having

:23:10.:23:15.

your own cinema makes you very popular. Movie nights are something

:23:16.:23:21.

special. It's super! So relaxed and comfortable. It brings back memories

:23:22.:23:27.

of what the cinema used to be years ago. It's just what you need. Every

:23:28.:23:35.

home should have one. The room has also been completely soundproofed so

:23:36.:23:38.

if there is a blockbuster, it will not disturb the neighbours. But even

:23:39.:23:45.

during a party, Art will be tucked away where he is at his happiest. I

:23:46.:23:52.

am strictly a projectionist, I am not one of the audience. I get my

:23:53.:23:55.

pleasure from looking through my porthole and seeing everybody

:23:56.:24:00.

enjoying the film. There is not another cinema any worth that I know

:24:01.:24:06.

of, that is anywhere like my cinema. I am pleased that. So, I call good

:24:07.:24:12.

films, the story of the young man with a love of cinema did have a

:24:13.:24:24.

happy ending. So, what to do senior producers do at the BBC? They gave

:24:25.:24:32.

us a lift of films that they might expect to see. In a small cinema.

:24:33.:24:34.
