And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Anne Davhes.

:00:14.:00:17.

First tonight, police recorded 600 hate crimes in Nottingh`m last

:00:18.:00:20.

year but an independent investigation claims there `re

:00:21.:00:23.

Nottingham Citizens Group is organising an inquiry to sed how

:00:24.:00:30.

widespread the problem is and it has the support of a Pentecostal

:00:31.:00:34.

bishop who says he's judged by the colour of his skin all the time

:00:35.:00:40.

Bishop Paul Thomas walks thd streets of St Ann's in Nottingham every

:00:41.:00:44.

week, but while spreading the word about his church, he is regtlarly

:00:45.:00:48.

I experience hate crime in terms of religion or colour

:00:49.:00:55.

I don't want my children to go through or have

:00:56.:01:00.

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

:01:01.:01:06.

organising an independent inquiry into hate crime, to find

:01:07.:01:09.

Leaving no room for hate is everyone's responsibility and that's

:01:10.:01:15.

why we're launching this report to produce and capture a sn`pshot

:01:16.:01:18.

of what hate crime looks like in the city and produce a sdt of

:01:19.:01:22.

recommendations that will ddliver change from the police to

:01:23.:01:25.

City Councils and the community themselves.

:01:26.:01:30.

Nottingham Citizens Group s`ys hate crime is hugely underreportdd.

:01:31.:01:34.

600 incidents were recorded by police last year.

:01:35.:01:39.

But a survey of taxi drivers suggest thex

:01:40.:01:41.

People abuse, people swear, all sorts.

:01:42.:01:47.

Most of us don't report because it takes too long.

:01:48.:01:52.

Two, three, four hours waiting for the police.

:01:53.:01:57.

And across the city at the charity Mencap, bossds told

:01:58.:02:00.

me 98% of learning disability hate crimes go unrecorded.

:02:01.:02:05.

They're running their own campaign to change that and enable

:02:06.:02:09.

When we get the reporting r`tes up, it means that learning disability

:02:10.:02:15.

hate crime and all hate crile will be taken more seriously and then

:02:16.:02:19.

With education key, they know change won't be quick or easy, but they are

:02:20.:02:28.

determined their inquiry, launched tonight, is the st`rt of

:02:29.:02:32.

An investigation is under w`y to find out how a fire

:02:33.:02:44.

Firefighters from across Leicestershire spent

:02:45.:02:48.

the day tackling the blaze, while resident s had to stay indoors spare

:02:49.:02:55.

with their windows and doors closed, who as Navtej Johal reports.

:02:56.:02:59.

This mobile phone footage c`ptured the fire that brought this

:03:00.:03:03.

Leicestershire village to a standstill.

:03:04.:03:04.

At half`past six this morning, fire crews were called to the Druck

:03:05.:03:07.

factory in Groby after reports of smoke inside the building.

:03:08.:03:11.

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

:03:12.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:19.

absolutely flames 30, 40 foot, jumping in the air.

:03:20.:03:24.

I suggested to my wife, get your clothes quickly because

:03:25.:03:27.

we're going to evacuate, because it's very close to a chemic`l plant

:03:28.:03:30.

Around 50 firefighters workdd on bringing the blaze under control.

:03:31.:03:36.

700 staff were evacuated from the building, while people living

:03:37.:03:39.

nearby were warned to stay hndoors and close doors and windows.

:03:40.:03:44.

There had been a nitric acid leak at the factory but the Fire Service

:03:45.:03:48.

is still investigating what caused this fire.

:03:49.:03:52.

There has been significant damage to the building itself.

:03:53.:03:55.

People are being allowed back into their homes.

:03:56.:03:57.

We initially carried out an evacuation due to the smoke

:03:58.:04:00.

plume but we want to reassure people that the smoke plume was no worse

:04:01.:04:05.

Several hours on from when the fire started, it's still very

:04:06.:04:09.

But the Fire Service has told us that

:04:10.:04:14.

what was a large, hazardous fire could've become a major inchdent

:04:15.:04:17.

were it not for the swift work of the fire crews here this morning.

:04:18.:04:28.

Finally, the football is about to kick off in Brazil but spard a

:04:29.:04:31.

thought for the emergency sdrvices on standby to pick up the pheces.

:04:32.:04:36.

As the drinks industry expects a boost in takings,

:04:37.:04:39.

so A departments are expecting more patients, as our health

:04:40.:04:43.

There's nothing like international football to stir

:04:44.:04:50.

..fill the pubs and get your heartbeat racing.

:04:51.:04:58.

Even if England are short on goals, they won't be short of advice.

:04:59.:05:04.

And at Derby's Accident Elergency unit, the police, City Council

:05:05.:05:07.

and doctors have been advishng each other on the best approach.

:05:08.:05:10.

It's an idea from Cardiff they're trying out

:05:11.:05:14.

It's a system that was set tp in Cardiff for really looking

:05:15.:05:17.

at the data associated with violent and specifically alcohol`related

:05:18.:05:21.

So information gathered herd on where trouble happens

:05:22.:05:27.

and why will be shared but patients' details will be anonymous.

:05:28.:05:31.

Are you expecting it to be very busy on Saturday?

:05:32.:05:33.

I think what'll happen is, people will make their way out

:05:34.:05:38.

The problem is the game doesn't start till 11

:05:39.:05:43.

o'clock at night, so there will be quite a bit of preloading, H think.

:05:44.:05:46.

Obviously we're playing against Italy,

:05:47.:05:48.

the World Cup at stake, that we d expect people in the city cdntre.

:05:49.:05:51.

What we're seeking to do is ensure that they are safe.

:05:52.:05:54.

This might be the calm before the storm.

:05:55.:05:56.

A lot quicker than I thought they would do.

:05:57.:06:02.

They hope the World Cup won't push up waits.

:06:03.:06:05.

There's a national target to meet ` 95% of patients in A seen,

:06:06.:06:08.

treated, admitted or sent home in four hours.

:06:09.:06:10.

Here, they've hit it for the first time in years.

:06:11.:06:13.

I think if the bars have extended licences, we'll be busy all

:06:14.:06:19.

In the East Midlands, there might be more of this, but

:06:20.:06:24.

the emergency services say they ll work hard to keep things safe.

:06:25.:06:30.

That's your news for now, so it's goodbye from me,

:06:31.:06:33.

Thank you, we have had some very lively weather and this is the

:06:34.:06:48.

-- over to jay now. Good evening, it was the warmest day

:07:34.:07:46.

of the year. Warm for some, but thundery for others. This line of

really intense thunderstorms moved through. Large hail and gusty winds

:07:51.:07:55.

and rain as well. That moved away and now we look towards the south

:07:56.:07:58.

and you can see the rain moving northwards. So let's look at the

cloud which is heading our way and some of it does look really quite

threatening particularly in the south-eastern corner there. That's

Northern Ireland by dawn. Another mild night. 12 Celsius in the north

:08:24.:08:27.

and maybe 13 Celsius or 14 Celsius in the south. To start the day

:08:28.:08:30.

across Northern England, it's looking good. It is dry and bright,

:08:31.:08:35.

but there will be wetter weather around the borders and up towards

:08:36.:08:45.

Shetland it will be wet. Heavy showers around in Northern Ireland.

:08:46.:08:48.

There could be thunder to go with
