actor Rick Mayle has died suddenly at the age of 56.

:00:00.:00:00.

This is East Midlands Today with Quentin Rayner and me Anne Davies.

:00:00.:00:00.

He's heading up one of the biggest studies

:00:07.:00:10.

I experience hate crime in terms of religion or colour

:00:11.:00:16.

Also tonight, from Rio to Derby via Cardiff.

:00:17.:00:22.

A new way to keep a lid on World Cup drinking.

:00:23.:00:26.

Sometimes we'll see, especi`lly for important matches, it quietdns down

:00:27.:00:28.

for the game itself but there will be a big increase just after that.

:00:29.:00:32.

Find out why this Derbyshird car plant is now blooming

:00:33.:00:39.

And the copper ore from this old mine in the hdart

:00:40.:00:43.

of the Peak District that m`de the fortune of the Dukes of Devonshire.

:00:44.:01:01.

Good evening and welcome to Monday's programme.

:01:02.:01:03.

A Pentecostal bishop who saxs he was judged by the colour

:01:04.:01:06.

of his skin is backing the country's largest ever hate crime survey.

:01:07.:01:12.

There were 600 hate crimes recorded in Nottingham last year but

:01:13.:01:15.

an independent investigation claims there are actually 600 each week.

:01:16.:01:20.

Bishop Paul Thomas says that many people don't bother telling

:01:21.:01:23.

the police about racist and homophobic attacks.

:01:24.:01:26.

Bishop Paul Thomas walks the streets of St Anne's

:01:27.:01:32.

But while spreading the word about his church, he's regularly

:01:33.:01:36.

I experienced hate crime in terms of religion or colour at least once a

:01:37.:01:53.

month. I don't want my children to experience that.

:01:54.:01:56.

That's why he and colleagues at Nottingham Citizens Group are

:01:57.:01:59.

organising an independent inquiry into hate crime to find

:02:00.:02:01.

Nottingham Citizens Group s`ys hate crime is hugely under reported.

:02:02.:02:11.

Life in no place for hate is everyone's responsibility. We want

:02:12.:02:18.

to produce a set of recommendations to deliver change from the police,

:02:19.:02:22.

City Council and community themselves.

:02:23.:02:23.

Nottingham Citizens Group s`ys hate crime is hugely under reported.

:02:24.:02:26.

600 incidents were recorded by police last year but a strvey

:02:27.:02:29.

of taxi drivers suggests thdy experience that amount everx week.

:02:30.:02:40.

We get abused for nothing. Lost of us don't report it because ht takes

:02:41.:02:48.

too long, a few hours. And across the city,

:02:49.:02:50.

at the charity Mencap, bossds told me 98% of learning disability hate

:02:51.:02:53.

crimes go unrecorded. Bosses here are running thehr own

:02:54.:02:55.

campaign to change that and enable When we get the reporting r`tes up

:02:56.:02:59.

it means learning disabilitx crime and all will be taken more seriously

:03:00.:03:06.

and it will be unacceptable to name With education key,

:03:07.:03:12.

they know change won't be qtick or easy but they're determinned

:03:13.:03:18.

their inquiry, launched tonhght is the start of a robust cr`ckdown

:03:19.:03:22.

on hate crime in Nottingham. Our health correspondent has been to

:03:23.:03:54.

the Royal Derby Hospital whdre they have been planning their response to

:03:55.:04:00.

the World Cup increase in drinking. There is nothing like international

:04:01.:04:07.

football to stir up national pride. Even if England are short on goals,

:04:08.:04:13.

they will not be short of advice. And that Derby's A unit, the

:04:14.:04:18.

police, City Council and doctors have advised each other on the best

:04:19.:04:23.

approach. It is an idea frol Cardiff. It was set up in C`rdiff

:04:24.:04:34.

for looking at the data rel`ted to alcohol related injuries. D`ta will

:04:35.:04:40.

be gathered here but patient details will be anonymous. I think ht will

:04:41.:04:50.

be busy. Around seven o'clock people will start but to the game does not

:04:51.:04:54.

start till 11 so people will drink beforehand. We expect a lot of

:04:55.:05:00.

people in the city centre. We want to make sure they are safe. This may

:05:01.:05:08.

be the calm before the storl. A E was quiet today. They saw md a lot

:05:09.:05:16.

quicker than I thought todax. 9 % of patients in AMD should be sden,

:05:17.:05:22.

treated, or sent home within four hours. They have hit it herd for the

:05:23.:05:28.

first time in years. If the buyers have extended licences we whll be

:05:29.:05:33.

busy all the way through thd night. In the East Midlands, there might be

:05:34.:05:37.

more of this but emergency services said they will work hard to keep

:05:38.:05:43.

things safe. How hopeful a will work?

:05:44.:05:49.

They don't want to be killjoys at the end of the day. Most people will

:05:50.:05:55.

have a good time. They just don t want as many injuries as ustal.

:05:56.:06:00.

How long have they been working on this plan?

:06:01.:06:05.

In the case of the Ambulancd Service, months of planning and they

:06:06.:06:10.

have a very thick manual for the World Cup. We will see how ht goes.

:06:11.:06:19.

Fingers crossed it all goes well and that England do well.

:06:20.:06:25.

Plenty more on its way here on BBC East Midlands Today, including

:06:26.:06:28.

Here are Kaye and Geeta to spell it out for you.

:06:29.:06:32.

The weather has certainly been making a racket

:06:33.:06:35.

today. This footage was captured in Ilkeston earlier today. Somd heavy

:06:36.:06:38.

thunderstorms and very largd hail around as well and we are not done

:06:39.:06:41.

just yet. All the noisy det`ils coming up later.

:06:42.:06:44.

And from headlining festivals to a bestselling `lbum, we

:06:45.:06:46.

chat to the band London Gralmar who were in fact made in Nottingham

:06:47.:07:22.

At half past six this morning, firefighters were called to the

:07:23.:07:25.

Druck factory in Groby after reports of smoke inside the building.

:07:26.:07:29.

After a couple of hours, it had become a dangerous fhre.

:07:30.:07:32.

This plume of smoke transferred to a very black, acrid smoke, absolutely.

:07:33.:07:36.

Flames 30, 40 foot, jumping in the air, to be quite honest with you.

:07:37.:07:42.

I suggested to my wife, get your clothes quickly,

:07:43.:07:45.

we are going to evacuate because it was very close to a chemical plant

:07:46.:09:09.

One of the East Midland's most popular

:09:10.:09:11.

nature reserves says it may have to pay out thousands of pounds after

:09:12.:09:14.

They used an axe to attack the drawbridge outside the visitor

:09:15.:09:19.

centre at the Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottingham.

:09:20.:09:22.

CCTV pictures are now being checked as part of the investigation.

:09:23.:09:26.

Repairs to the bridge hydratlics were carried out today.

:09:27.:09:36.

As a charity the money we m`ke here and the money which is going to be

:09:37.:09:44.

spent on repairing the drawbridge should be being spent on protecting

:09:45.:09:49.

The last defendant to give dvidence in the Leicester house fire murder

:09:50.:09:53.

trial has denied knowing about any plan for revenge that night.

:09:54.:09:56.

Akeem Jeffers did however admit being there when

:09:57.:09:58.

a fire was started deliberately killing a family of four.

:09:59.:10:01.

Sarah Teale has been at Nottingham crown court.

:10:02.:10:03.

Sarah, this is the last of the eight accused to give evidence.

:10:04.:10:07.

Well, the 24`year`old says he was at Woodhill in Leicester last

:10:08.:10:12.

But he says he knew nothing about the arson attack or any other

:10:13.:10:18.

During this trial we've heard from some of the other co`accused

:10:19.:10:23.

who claim there was a plan to brick the family home of Abdul Hakim,

:10:24.:10:28.

a man believed to be involvdd in the fatal stabbing of their friend.

:10:29.:10:32.

But Jeffers said he didn't know anything about that either.

:10:33.:10:35.

He said he was on the street with the rest of the group but a van was

:10:36.:10:39.

blocking his view so he didn't see the fire being set or who dhd it.

:10:40.:10:43.

As we know, the wrong house was targeted and Shehnila Taufip

:10:44.:10:47.

and her three children died in the petrol bombing attack.

:10:48.:10:51.

Sarah, what did Jeffers say in explaining why he didn't say

:10:52.:10:54.

He says he didn't realise until the day after how serhous

:10:55.:10:59.

He said I felt sick to my stomach I couldn't believe it.

:11:00.:11:03.

I was devastated that four innocent people had died.

:11:04.:11:07.

He was asked if he was entirely innocent why he didn't tell the

:11:08.:11:12.

He said I was petrified scared and didn't want to tell the police I

:11:13.:11:17.

The court heard he was arrested two weeks after the fire at

:11:18.:11:23.

Leeds Met University where he was doing a business degree.

:11:24.:11:26.

Sarah, this case has been going on for seven weeks now.

:11:27.:11:29.

How much longer is it expected to last?

:11:30.:11:32.

This is the last of the defendants to give evidence.

:11:33.:11:34.

The legal teams will now begin their summing up and the jury is

:11:35.:11:41.

expected to be sent out to consider their verdicts next week.

:11:42.:11:54.

A large car factory is prob`bly one of the most unlikely of loc`tions

:11:55.:11:57.

But the Derbyshire`based Toxota plant has joined forces with the

:11:58.:12:03.

With more details, here's Simon Hare.

:12:04.:12:14.

It's a hive of industrial activity but look closely

:12:15.:12:17.

Toyota's giant car plant at Burnaston near Derby is now home to

:12:18.:12:24.

We've got the county flowers that represent where all

:12:25.:12:30.

The transformation of our industrial land, how domestic

:12:31.:12:38.

gardens, which are 1% of thd entire British land area, are as ilportant

:12:39.:12:43.

Because it's where most people actually engage with wild plants.

:12:44.:12:49.

The 580`acre site has got more than 400 different plant

:12:50.:12:53.

Toyota says it makes economhc as well as environmental sense.

:12:54.:12:59.

Cutting the grass between the buildings is very

:13:00.:13:03.

expensive and so this way you only cut the grass once a year,

:13:04.:13:07.

It leads the way, we believd, in showing what can be done.

:13:08.:13:15.

Roughly, for every 100 years of a hedge's life span,

:13:16.:13:20.

one new species arrives so we've got a hedge created of ten wild, woody

:13:21.:13:24.

plants and climbers that run really right up to the factories hdre.

:13:25.:13:30.

And seeds from flood meadow on this site have now gone

:13:31.:13:34.

into the nation's seed bank to help restore wild flowers to othdr areas

:13:35.:13:38.

Which, in hockey, would makd it a short corner wouldn't it Colin?

:13:39.:14:12.

We're are at Loughborough University to see if Leicester Ladies can win.

:14:13.:14:21.

We are also in Holland for the men's hockey World Cup.

:14:22.:14:24.

Now, it all seems to be happening underground at the moment bdcause,

:14:25.:14:28.

on the day work began to reopen a tungsten mine in Devon, the

:14:29.:14:31.

public now has access to a former copper mine in the Peak District.

:14:32.:14:35.

In its prime during the 19th century, the Ecton mine madd the

:14:36.:14:38.

Near Hartington in the heart of the Peak District, Paul Lortimer

:14:39.:14:45.

and Zoe Stevens take me to the old winding house above the Ecton mine.

:14:46.:14:49.

The winding house built in the 8th century is one of the buildhngs

:14:50.:14:56.

This concrete slab, underne`th is a 1300 feet hole under us. It is

:14:57.:15:08.

deeper than the Empire Statd building.

:15:09.:15:10.

The winding house built in the 8th century is one of the buildhngs

:15:11.:15:14.

revealing what developed beneath the hill 350 million years `go.

:15:15.:15:16.

The copper was discovered 4000 years ago by Bronze Age dwellers, who

:15:17.:15:20.

By the late 18th century, the mine was producing

:15:21.:15:23.

the equivalent of millions of pounds a year in income for the owner,

:15:24.:15:27.

the fourth Duke of Devonshire, and his fabled Duchess, Georgiana.

:15:28.:15:31.

It was at the time they werd landscaping Chatsworth Park, a time

:15:32.:15:39.

when the Cavendish family wdre spending a lot of money so this

:15:40.:15:42.

would have been a significant contributor to their income.

:15:43.:15:44.

As the mine went deeper, thdy needed steam power to lift the ore

:15:45.:15:47.

so a Birmingham built beam dngine was put inside the winding house.

:15:48.:15:51.

200 feet below the winding house, we walked into the mine at one of the

:15:52.:15:55.

We are directly beneath the engine house. That is about 200 fedt above

:15:56.:16:12.

our heads. Below us is another 100 feet to the bottom of the mhne.

:16:13.:16:16.

Unfortunately for the miners, once the winding engine went

:16:17.:16:19.

By the 1850s the engine was gone and copper mining stopped in 18 9.

:16:20.:16:24.

The old winding house becamd a cow shed but now the National

:16:25.:16:27.

Trust have worked to restord it to show both its functions.

:16:28.:16:33.

If you scratch on here, you can smell what it was like in the engine

:16:34.:16:42.

house, and if you scratch this one it is when we had some cows living

:16:43.:16:58.

here. It proves that all th`t glitters virtually is gold.

:16:59.:17:08.

It's a hockey special on Sport tonight because we have two big

:17:09.:17:14.

Behind me, right now, Leicester Ladies are playing the final of the

:17:15.:17:19.

And in Holland, an England men's team stackdd with

:17:20.:17:25.

East Midlands talent have a must`win game in the World Cup.

:17:26.:17:30.

So, tonight we're going to talk stick work,

:17:31.:17:33.

Some quick sports news to start though because Nottingham Forest

:17:34.:17:40.

manager Stuart Pearce is moving swiftly into the transfer m`rket.

:17:41.:17:46.

Medicals today for Dutch striker Lars Veldwijk and Former Lehcester

:17:47.:17:49.

Fryatt's scored at a rate of a goal every three games during his career,

:17:50.:17:54.

which saw him spend the last three seasons at Premier League Htll City.

:17:55.:17:58.

He's rejected a new contract offer from them.

:17:59.:18:08.

Derby County have had an offer for George Thorne rejected by Wdst

:18:09.:18:15.

Leicestershire's Sylvain Guhntoli is back up to second in the

:18:16.:18:18.

World Superbike Championships after two second place finishes

:18:19.:18:20.

In a very tight contest this season, you feel every point will count

:18:21.:18:35.

Behind me this is the Eurohockey Club Champions Trophy. Let's talk to

:18:36.:18:42.

one of the organisers. It is kind of like putting video rope powdr leak

:18:43.:18:49.

together. You must be delighted It is incredible it has all cole

:18:50.:18:53.

together and we are so pleased to have it here. You must be even more

:18:54.:18:59.

delighted to see that Leicester Ladies are winning at the moment

:19:00.:19:05.

2`1. Yes six minutes to go. It is incredible. In a joke we sahd to the

:19:06.:19:12.

team that there was only ond result we wanted and we weren't trxing to

:19:13.:19:16.

put too much pressure but to actually have them in the fhnal is

:19:17.:19:25.

relieved. In terms of the overall prestige of hockey, how important

:19:26.:19:32.

are events like this? Incredibly so. It was last in the UK ten ydars ago.

:19:33.:19:38.

We should do more here. Holland to a lot. We are so pleased to host it

:19:39.:19:40.

here at Loughborough University Still on hockey, the papers may

:19:41.:19:43.

be full of Brazil but it's not the Tonight four hockey players from

:19:44.:19:47.

the East Midlands are facing one of England's men need to beat Belgium

:19:48.:19:53.

to reach the World Cup semifinals. It's being played in The Hague

:19:54.:19:59.

in the Netherlands. And from there Mark Shardlow

:20:00.:20:02.

has sent this report. It may be dwarfed by Brazil but the

:20:03.:20:15.

tournament here is doing its best to bring noise and colour to hockey.

:20:16.:20:22.

England are playing to sell out crowds of 15,000. The East Lidlands

:20:23.:20:29.

is playing its part. A quartet who helped Beeston to the world title

:20:30.:20:34.

are hoping to bring England to success. If you had told us we could

:20:35.:20:42.

have a game against Belgium and then be in the semifinals, we wotldn t

:20:43.:20:48.

believe it. If we beat them, we get the resort `` rewards we deserve.

:20:49.:21:00.

They were thrashed 5`0 by Atstralia. We just have to go on and ilprove.

:21:01.:21:09.

We improved over the summer last year and now hopefully we whll get

:21:10.:21:15.

over the line. Belgium will be tough. We can address a few issues

:21:16.:21:22.

and improve for Monday. England have only reached the semifinal of the

:21:23.:21:28.

World Cup twice in its history. Something like this would hdlp,

:21:29.:21:36.

though. Belgian's women werd late Al for the second half yesterd`y and

:21:37.:21:44.

play started without them. It wouldn't be England in a World

:21:45.:21:49.

Cup it was not tense. Leicester are playing in black you this evening.

:21:50.:21:54.

They had three minutes and 40 seconds to go. You're the club

:21:55.:22:03.

president, how excited I? Wd have just got a penalty corner so

:22:04.:22:08.

hopefully we will convert it. How exciting is it for the team to be

:22:09.:22:16.

playing at this level? We h`ve done a fantastic job this evening. The

:22:17.:22:21.

quality is here to be seen. These are top clubs. This club from Moscow

:22:22.:22:28.

are really top. They have rdally pushed us. We have come back from

:22:29.:22:41.

1`0 down to make it 2`1. All, it has come off the post! This is cooling

:22:42.:22:48.

me. It is brilliant and we have loved every second posting this

:22:49.:22:54.

tournament. I would like to thank the council and all of our sponsors

:22:55.:23:02.

and volunteers and everybodx. Hopefully we will be able to say

:23:03.:23:08.

that Leicester Ladies have won this title later tonight. It could not be

:23:09.:23:17.

more tense. We will bring you the result of this later.

:23:18.:23:24.

We will try to pass that on before the programme ends.

:23:25.:23:29.

From a platinum`selling albtm to supporting the likes of Coldplay,

:23:30.:23:32.

London Grammar are a band that have won both ptblic

:23:33.:23:34.

But while they're named after the capital, they acttally met

:23:35.:23:38.

And as our arts reporter Geeta Pendse found out,

:23:39.:23:42.

their time here has had a huge influence on their mtsic

:23:43.:23:45.

# And I'm so down Caught in the middle. # Performing

:23:46.:23:57.

Performing Strong, a song that has had countless radio

:23:58.:24:00.

With a platinum selling albtm under their belts, it's been

:24:01.:24:04.

Over the weekend, they were performing at the

:24:05.:24:12.

No Tomorrow festival at Willerton hall just a stone's throw away

:24:13.:24:14.

from where they met as studdnts at the University of Nottingham

:24:15.:24:17.

We met, basically, because we were in the same halls.

:24:18.:24:20.

Dan and Hannah met first in about 2008.

:24:21.:24:22.

The first gig we did as a three was Bag Of Nails,

:24:23.:24:26.

We played quite a few shows there and we went on and

:24:27.:24:31.

played in the Bodega and other sort of clubs and bars around and stop it

:24:32.:24:39.

For Hannah, it was very much her first steps

:24:40.:24:43.

# Maybe I'm wasting my young years. #

:24:44.:24:46.

The trio were signed to a l`bel not long after leaving univdrsity,

:24:47.:24:49.

They've also recently won an Ivor Novello award

:24:50.:24:52.

for their songwriting but they say the seeds for many of the songs

:24:53.:24:56.

There are songs which still exist that were just written

:24:57.:25:00.

in our student bedrooms and that's an important thing because they are

:25:01.:25:04.

We began here and made our very first gigs in Notthngham.

:25:05.:25:10.

You know, that's where we wdre born, really.

:25:11.:25:14.

# Yeah, I might seem so strong Yeah, I might speak so long. #

:25:15.:25:21.

It's not long ago they were writing songs

:25:22.:25:23.

Now they're performing around the world but it's clear Nottingham

:25:24.:25:28.

She has the voice of an angdl. Yes, and the heavens opened today.

:25:29.:25:56.

This was the result of some pretty heavy rain today. We have more

:25:57.:26:04.

pictures on our Facebook page. If you have more pictures to sdnd in,

:26:05.:26:13.
