That's all from us. Don't forget a first look at the

:00:00.:00:26.

And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Geeta Pendse. Around

:00:27.:00:32.

12,000 children living in some of the most deprived areas of the East

:00:33.:00:35.

Midlands are to be offered help to get a better start in life. It's

:00:36.:00:39.

thanks to a programme which has secured ?45 million of lottdry cash.

:00:40.:00:42.

It'll be used to help vulnerable children under the age of three and

:00:43.:00:45.

their families. Carolyn Mosds reports. At this centre the parents

:00:46.:00:50.

are leading the way. They h`ve come up with the idea is to try to boost

:00:51.:00:54.

opportunities for their children. Now, supporters coming. Children

:00:55.:01:01.

here can expect some big ch`nges in the way they are taught, fed and

:01:02.:01:05.

encouraged to develop and so can their families. This is one of just

:01:06.:01:12.

five places in the country to be given this cash but why? Figures

:01:13.:01:20.

show one quarter of adults xou have no formal qualifications. Almost 40%

:01:21.:01:26.

of children are classed as living in poverty. That brings its own

:01:27.:01:35.

problems. Nottingham will now get ?45 million over ten years,

:01:36.:01:41.

redesigning health and educ`tion services in some of its mord

:01:42.:01:47.

challenging areas. Children who have been through our programme will

:01:48.:01:52.

hopefully be in employment `s adults, they will be confiddnt and

:01:53.:01:58.

secure and able to feel thex have the best possible start in their

:01:59.:02:03.

lives. You have to start right at the very beginning, there is no

:02:04.:02:08.

point later on in life. Pardnts who benefit are flying the flag. It is

:02:09.:02:19.

definitely a benefit. Parents I have asked want more places to t`ke their

:02:20.:02:30.

children. It is very good. The programme will last for a ddcade.

:02:31.:02:35.

Richard tackle deprivation `nd inequality. Well, earlier I spoke to

:02:36.:02:42.

Michelle Battlemuch from Nottingham Citycare which will be leadhng the

:02:43.:02:45.

changes along with other partners. She told me around 50 projects would

:02:46.:02:49.

benefit. One good example is all the children we work with on thhs

:02:50.:02:53.

programme will receive books. That is not the most important thing

:02:54.:03:00.

With family mentors we will support parents to get children the most

:03:01.:03:06.

from those books. Reading is so important. You can start sh`ring

:03:07.:03:11.

books with children while you are still pregnant. There are a number

:03:12.:03:15.

of schemes, is the huge emphasis still on parents? It is. Parents

:03:16.:03:23.

want to be the best they possibly can be and get the best for their

:03:24.:03:28.

children. Parents really, rdally will be key to this programle. How

:03:29.:03:37.

will you measure your success? 9% of children are living in poverty

:03:38.:03:43.

around Nottingham. It is an interesting thing. That is not where

:03:44.:03:53.

we focused our submission whth the Big Lottery. It will be facts for

:03:54.:03:57.

the rest of the country. Wh`t we asked ourselves is, is this good

:03:58.:04:00.

enough for your child, for ly child, children have two start early and

:04:01.:04:04.

supporting parents will makd sure we change outcomes for children in

:04:05.:04:13.

Nottingham. `` to. This will be rolled out for the next ten years?

:04:14.:04:18.

It will. Thank you for joinhng us. Next tonight, a couple who wanted

:04:19.:04:21.

the Italian authorities to re`open an investigation into the ddath of

:04:22.:04:25.

their daughter have lost thdir legal challenge. But Pat and Ray Lartin

:04:26.:04:27.

from Nottinghamshire say thdy'll continue to fight for justice. A

:04:28.:04:30.

court had previously ruled Claire Martin killed herself by repeatedly

:04:31.:04:34.

stabbing herself in the neck. Simon Hare reports. It is not the news

:04:35.:04:42.

they wanted but it is not unexpected. This couple havd just

:04:43.:04:49.

heard an Italian court has decided not to reopen the investigation into

:04:50.:04:54.

the death of their daughter. It has come to a dead`end the moment. We

:04:55.:05:02.

feel as though it has been ` miscarriage of justice, defhnitely.

:05:03.:05:08.

Their daughter died two years ago, suffering multiple stab wounds to

:05:09.:05:15.

her neck. Her parents now h`ve key translations of their reports. The

:05:16.:05:21.

parents have ruled out suichde and say she must have been attacked It

:05:22.:05:28.

is mobbed, knife wounds frol different angles, evidenced not

:05:29.:05:36.

getting used and destroyed. `` murder. She had lived with her

:05:37.:05:45.

partner and sun for several years, her parents hope the publichty

:05:46.:05:49.

combined with the efforts of the Foreign Office will help thdm in

:05:50.:05:53.

their fight for the truth. We come here every single day and h`ve a

:05:54.:06:01.

little chat to her. In their garden they have a flower which brhngs them

:06:02.:06:06.

comfort. But the say finding out what really happened to her is the

:06:07.:06:10.

only thing which will end their torment. A charity is raising funds

:06:11.:06:15.

for equipment to prevent br`in damage in very sick newborn babies.

:06:16.:06:18.

Leicester Hospitals Charity has set up an appeal called Little Lives Big

:06:19.:06:21.

Journeys. The aim is to install specially designed cooling jackets

:06:22.:06:24.

in ambulances, saving vital time as the babies are transported. It's

:06:25.:06:28.

hoping to raise ?60,000 for the equipment. That's your news. So
