Waking up that morning and being told

:00:59.:01:00.

by my grandma that he'd been killed on duty, whilst on duty, was...

:01:01.:01:03.

I don't think I can ever describe that pain that it was,

:01:04.:01:06.

and the pain I've now got to live with for the rest of my lifd.

:01:07.:01:10.

I don't really like to talk about it but when I go away to the

:01:22.:01:25.

They know what to say because they've been through the sale thing.

:01:26.:01:31.

People understood you and they knew why you were tpset.

:01:32.:01:33.

They understood your grief `nd the depth of how upset you were

:01:34.:01:36.

It was amazing having that lifeline, being able to talk to peopld

:01:37.:01:39.

Being able to talk to someone my age about the tragedy th`t we've

:01:40.:01:47.

So now they are saying thank you, raising funds for COPS in Jtly

:01:48.:01:52.

I'm not going to lie, I'm very scared.

:01:53.:01:58.

A man has been arrested after a car hit a tree,

:01:59.:02:10.

killing one man and leaving another in a serious condition.

:02:11.:02:12.

It happened early this mornhng on Welford Road in Leicester,

:02:13.:02:15.

near to the junction with Knighton Lane East.

:02:16.:02:21.

It was confirmed today a horse rider who died

:02:22.:02:25.

during an event in Somerset this weekend was from Leicestershire

:02:34.:02:38.

Rutland's Kendrew Barracks hosted a special event today to mark

:02:39.:02:40.

World War I. It included a special ballet commemorathng both

:02:41.:02:42.

the beginning of the Great War and the withdrawal, 100 years later,

:02:43.:02:45.

of British troops from Afgh`nistan. Simon Ward reports.

:02:46.:02:51.

For this performance, they don't just need dancing skills,

:02:52.:02:53.

This group, called Gravity And Levity,

:02:54.:03:04.

at performing Rites Of War, a piece about soldiers serving in w`rs 00

:03:05.:03:07.

years apart ` the First World War and the conflict in Afghanistan

:03:08.:03:10.

So, normally, our floor would be, obviously, the dance floor.

:03:11.:03:14.

We just flipped our floor by 90 degrees.

:03:15.:03:17.

So it gives a completely different perspective

:03:18.:03:18.

on the work and offers a different viewpoint for the audience `s well.

:03:19.:03:22.

Kind of a bird's`eye view looking down on someone from above.

:03:23.:03:29.

The dance is part of a wider arts and community event at Kendrew

:03:30.:03:32.

Barracks, which was RAF Cottesmore before the Army took over.

:03:33.:03:35.

We have a large military base now in the county.

:03:36.:03:37.

The first time we've had anxone so big coming here.

:03:38.:03:39.

And we wanted to make sure, as a major cultural organis`tion

:03:40.:03:42.

in Rutland, that we did somdthing to bring together the Army

:03:43.:03:47.

community and the local poptlation who have lived here for somd time.

:03:48.:03:50.

And, judging by the reaction, people enjoyed this mix of the

:03:51.:03:55.

Now, let's have a look at the weather. It has certainly bden

:03:56.:04:12.

lacking in sunshine this wedkend. There will be a bit of brightness

:04:13.:04:15.

and we are staying quite settled and quiet. A lot of dry weather and

:04:16.:04:19.

there will be some brightness around as well. We've seen a few showers

:04:20.:04:23.

this evening which are starting to fade so it will be drier tonight.

:04:24.:04:29.

There will be some clear spdlls and temperatures get down to around 11

:04:30.:04:36.

degrees. A bright start tomorrow morning, there will be some sunshine

:04:37.:04:41.

early on. Once again that cloud fills in as the day progresses. Some

:04:42.:04:46.

brighter bit and we will st`y dry all day. Temperatures get up to 18

:04:47.:04:51.

degrees, so not too bad. St`ying quite settled for the rest of this

:04:52.:04:56.

week. Dry weather, temperattres back into the 20s. Good night.

:04:57.:05:02.

Good evening. When the sunshine is out this week it should feel warm.

:05:03.:05:16.

The sun will have to fight through the cloud every now and again. With

:05:17.:05:21.

high pressure in charge, it will be a largely dry week. Only the odd

:05:22.:05:24.

shower to contend with. That is what we have at the moment. Far and few

:05:25.:05:29.

between. One or two showers in the south west and Wales and a few over

:05:30.:05:36.

Norfolk, Suffolk and Kent. Most of you, a dry night. Some clear skies

:05:37.:05:41.

around. Muggy across some western areas. Fresher twaurds the
