overlooking the statue of G`ndhi in Leicester after it was ddfaced.

:00:19.:00:21.

The graffiti made reference to the Golden Temple Massacre hn India

:00:22.:00:25.

` the thirtieth anniversary of which was being marked today

:00:26.:00:28.

A bronze statue of Mahatma Gandhi has stood proudly in

:00:29.:00:34.

Leicester's Golden Mile for five years, a symbol of Leicester's

:00:35.:00:39.

But it's been daubed with graffiti, upsetting the charity that

:00:40.:00:44.

It's hugely disrespectful bdcause we can't see any reason for anx sort

:00:45.:00:50.

This is a cohesive communitx and we had a lot of support from everybody.

:00:51.:00:58.

The graffiti makes reference to 1984.

:00:59.:01:00.

That's when the Indian Army were ordered into the Golden Temple to

:01:01.:01:04.

Sikhs marched through London today to mark 30 years since thosd raids

:01:05.:01:11.

and to protest about what they claim was India's failure to

:01:12.:01:14.

prevent the deaths of thous`nds of Sikhs in rioting that sale year.

:01:15.:01:19.

Here, Leicestershire Police are investigating the vandalism.

:01:20.:01:22.

We have had this before but now we are going to have a serious

:01:23.:01:28.

conversation with the authority to look at

:01:29.:01:30.

I think we'll be looking at CCTV, more police patrols.

:01:31.:01:35.

A garland quickly replaced the graffiti,

:01:36.:01:37.

symbolising peace and respect, both teachings of Mahatma G`ndhi.

:01:38.:01:46.

Around 150 people were at an illegal rave in Rutland

:01:47.:01:49.

overnight with many more stopped from attending by police.

:01:50.:01:52.

Police received reports of loud music and large groups on private

:01:53.:01:56.

Rather than disperse those there in the dark, officers worked instead

:01:57.:02:01.

It is a dark section of the wood and we have to deal with it

:02:02.:02:09.

from a safety perspective for the officers and people

:02:10.:02:11.

involved, so, as you can sed, we have the roadblocks on and that is

:02:12.:02:15.

A villages' local councillor says he won't give up the fight agahnst a

:02:16.:02:23.

traveller site that's stood nearby without permission for five years.

:02:24.:02:26.

The travellers own the land at Barlestone near Hinckley,

Tucked away in the Leicestershire countryside is a traveller site

:02:30.:02:36.

They arrived here on Good Friday back in 2009 but five years on,

:02:37.:02:42.

they still don't have permanent planning permission.

:02:43.:02:46.

In the nearby village of Barlestone residents have complained

:02:47.:02:49.

And the local councillor has been handing out leaflets, urging

:02:50.:02:54.

There are six sites in the `rea and they will basically comd here

:02:55.:03:05.

for what they need, and while some of them are probably

:03:06.:03:08.

fine and we probably don't dven notice them, there are the onesthat

:03:09.:03:11.

fine and we probably don't dven notice them, there are the ones that

:03:12.:03:14.

This is the only site of those six without permandnt

:03:15.:03:19.

The traveller application w`s rejected by Bosworth and Hinckley

:03:20.:03:22.

Borough council and said thdre would be an unacceptable increase

:03:23.:03:24.

in traffic an adverse affect on the countryside's appear`nce

:03:25.:03:27.

The travellers have appealed and their case will now be heard

:03:28.:03:30.

The vast number of travellers realise that going through the

In this day and age people do deserve a decent place to lhve.

:03:48.:04:01.

It is illegal because it hasn't got planning permission,

The region's newest MP will have his first day proper at Westminster

He told today's Sunday Politics for the East Midlands he was

:04:29.:04:33.

looking forward to day one ` but also conscious he's being

:04:34.:04:36.

Normally young MPs entered the House of Commons as one of a big class,

:04:37.:04:41.

the class of 2014 is one and that is me .

:04:42.:04:45.

That is good for new work as well but we will have more profile.
