attack after Vincent Aitken's wife Pamela resigned from her job

:01:05.:01:07.

Today Nathan Doherty, Vincent Aitken and his daughter Emma

:01:08.:01:12.

Pamela Aitken was cleared of assisting an offender.

:01:13.:01:22.

For Barry Smith's family, relief.

:01:23.:01:25.

It's been eight and a half months since my

:01:26.:01:32.

Today has shown us justice because the three murderers have

:01:33.:01:36.

actually been found guilty of what they've done.

:01:37.:01:38.

I've never in my life heard anything so horrific of what

:01:39.:01:40.

Originally from Doncaster, Mr Smith had been living

:01:41.:01:44.

in the close`knit village of Kilburn for around five years.

:01:45.:01:48.

He was described in court as much loved and cherished.

:01:49.:01:51.

He leaves behind four children and three grandchildren.

:01:52.:01:54.

We just go to his grave and give flowers

:01:55.:02:00.

` that's all we can do becatse we're never going to see her again.

:02:01.:02:04.

Sentencing the trio to a total of at least 52 years in jail, the judge

:02:05.:02:13.

described the attack as a brutal and merciless killing equiv`lent to

:02:14.:02:15.

Detectives investigating thd murder of a Polish man in Nottingh`m have

:02:16.:02:23.

22`year`old Bogdan Nawrotskh was last seen in January.

:02:24.:02:26.

In April a 37`year old man was charged with murder.

:02:27.:02:28.

This morning a 28`year`old man was also detained.

:02:29.:02:36.

Police are still searching for Mr Nawrotski's body.

:02:37.:02:39.

Health bosses say they're concerned lives are being put at risk because

:02:40.:02:42.

some women don't have their free cervical smear tests. In parts of

:02:43.:02:45.

Nottingham the take`up is as low as 50%. The test can ultimatelx save

:02:46.:02:49.

lives ` something one woman knows only too well. At 27, Amy Ctpit s

:02:50.:02:53.

test saved not only hers but that of her unborn baby.

:02:54.:02:59.

So on that first day I had my surgery, they were just doing

:03:00.:03:02.

a colposcopy under anaesthetic, because I was pregnant.

:03:03.:03:04.

She is just pleased she took up the offer of a smear.

:03:05.:03:12.

Because of it, she heard she had cancer.

:03:13.:03:14.

If I hadn't had that smear, maybe I wouldn't have known that

:03:15.:03:21.

Having a baby had been an uphill struggle.

:03:22.:03:24.

She was eight weeks pregnant when she was told she had cdrvical

:03:25.:03:30.

Innovative surgery in Nottingham saved her

:03:31.:03:32.

In between being told I had cancer and going back to see my consultant,

:03:33.:03:39.

there was all sorts going through my mind.

:03:40.:03:41.

I dreamt of my own funeral, my baby dying, all sorts of terribld things.

:03:42.:03:46.

Women aged 25 to 64 are invhted for cervical screening but hn parts

:03:47.:03:56.

They've worked hard to get more women to have smears.

:03:57.:04:04.

Cervical screening is just a really good form

:04:05.:04:07.

It's important to say we're not looking for cancer

:04:08.:04:14.

We're actually looking at cdrvical cells that have become abnormal

:04:15.:04:22.

Amy in Nottingham needs little convincing.

:04:23.:04:24.

I never thought in a million years I would hear someone say to md "you've

:04:25.:04:28.

got cancer", but it happened to me so it could happen to anybody.

:04:29.:04:33.

Well, the Jo's Trust charity condtcts

:04:34.:04:35.

research into cervical cancdr and also runs campaigns on scredning.

:04:36.:04:38.

Earlier I spoke to its chief executive about why so few

:04:39.:04:41.

From embarrassment, fear of the actual procedure itsdlf.

:04:42.:04:48.

Depending on your age, your ethnicity, there are also

:04:49.:04:52.

worries about relevance and knowledge about the actual test

:04:53.:04:55.

So what's really important, I think, is to try to target it depending

:04:56.:05:00.

on age or community so that they feel they totally

:05:01.:05:04.

understand why screening is relevant for them and they attend as soon

:05:05.:05:07.

It's every three years for younger women,

:05:08.:05:11.

We have to be guided by the experts and they have sent for many years

:05:12.:05:18.

that the current intervals of three years in five years are

:05:19.:05:20.

absolutely right so it's important that it stays like that unthl

:05:21.:05:24.

How do you hope to actually get the message across to peopld

:05:25.:05:29.

Again, I think what's really important is

:05:30.:05:32.

to think about the different ages, the different ethnicities, `nd how

:05:33.:05:36.

they want to be communicated with, rather than a blanket appro`ch.

:05:37.:05:40.

We've run a number of different pieces of research that havd

:05:41.:05:43.

I think that's important from a local level.

:05:44.:05:49.

East Midlands Ambulance Service is predicting a huge rise

:05:50.:05:56.

It's because the first Engl`nd match in the World Cup coincides with hot

:05:57.:06:01.

Managers at Ambulance Control say they expect calls every few seconds

:06:02.:06:06.

and have spent months preparing for the event.

:06:07.:06:09.

During the match itself, we will have a normal, prob`bly

:06:10.:06:13.

a quieter than normal, Saturday night because a lot of people will

:06:14.:06:16.

But what we anticipate from about 15 minutes afterwards is that we will.

:06:17.:06:23.

To see an increase in activhty with a particular spike going on

:06:24.:06:26.

I'll have more news for you across the weekend, but it's goodbxe for

:06:42.:06:46.

tomorrow but I expect it to be a mostly dry day and we can sde some

:06:47.:06:50.

sunny spells during the aftdrnoon. For now, we have the risk of some

:06:51.:06:54.

heavy, thundery downpours for the next few hours before they start to

:06:55.:06:58.

ease. It could lead to localised flooding so take care if yot out and

:07:22.:07:24.

:07:25.:07:29.

the next few days, followed by the national forecast.

:07:30.:07:32.

next couple of days, looking good, temperatures in the 20s. Now the

:07:39.:07:43.

in the south of England there has been a lot of sunshine and

:07:44.:07:47.

temperatures up to 26 degrees. Don't expect temperatures that high this

:07:48.:07:51.

weekend, cooler for many. A lot of dry weather even if it is a little

:07:52.:07:55.

bit on the cloudy side at times We see the cloud increasing this

Over the last few hours we started to see thunderstorms. Over the next

:08:05.:08:08.

few hours, further thunderstorms to be found across parts of northern

:08:09.:08:11.

England, the Midlands, the eastern side of Wales. They are drifting

:08:12.:08:16.

south overnight. Every bursts of rain with that. Most will clear into

:08:17.:08:21.

the English Channel. A lot of cloud out there, temperatures 14 or 1

:08:22.:08:25.
