This is East Midlands Today with Dominic Heale and me, Geeta Pendse.

:00:20.:00:26.

Tonight: the patient denied the chance of a life`changing operation

:00:27.:00:31.

because of where she lives. I feel like I am getting no clear fast and

:00:32.:00:39.

nobody cheers for me. Attempts to reduce school bullying. And the

:00:40.:00:50.

council paying for on`board CCTV in taxi cabs. Plus, as England prepare

:00:51.:00:57.

to face Uruguay in the World Cup we find out how performances in Brazil

:00:58.:00:59.

will affect businesses here. Good evening and welcome to

:01:00.:01:08.

Thursday's programme. First tonight, the patient denied NHS fundhng for a

:01:09.:01:11.

procedure that could dramathcally change her life. Lynsay Stewart says

:01:12.:01:17.

she's at her wits end. She feels caught up in a bureaucratic

:01:18.:01:20.

confusion over which part of the health service controls the purse

:01:21.:01:24.

strings for her procedure. Lyndsay has a rare syndrome that me`ns her

:01:25.:01:29.

bladder doesn't function normally. Her consultant wants her to have an

:01:30.:01:32.

electronic implant that could help her live a more normal life. The

:01:33.:01:36.

29`year`old's been told if she lived in some other parts of the Tnited

:01:37.:01:42.

Kingdom she'd get it. Our hdalth correspondent Rob Sissons rdports.

:01:43.:01:52.

Every few hours Lindsay has to use these tubes like catheters because

:01:53.:01:55.

her bladder does not function normally. For years, it has been an

:01:56.:02:03.

inconvenient way of life. It affects me everyday because I have to beware

:02:04.:02:10.

of weird I can go and where I cannot go. It is very frustrating. The NHS

:02:11.:02:23.

has said no twice to funding and implant that she and her spdcialist

:02:24.:02:32.

think could make a difference. Collect Rose would be attached to my

:02:33.:02:37.

nerve endings which will pl`y would stimulate my bladder. `` eldctrodes.

:02:38.:02:46.

Tonight there are questions over who it is that should be for thd

:02:47.:02:52.

procedure, the local NHS or NHS England. There were a few slall

:02:53.:03:03.

areas where people have fallen between stones. We are trying to

:03:04.:03:10.

find a solution for her. Wasn't the reorganisation to make things better

:03:11.:03:17.

for patients? It was but we have suddenly discovered where there are

:03:18.:03:20.

issues for individual groups of patients where we find they are not

:03:21.:03:25.

being covered adequately by the rules we have put in place. I am

:03:26.:03:31.

going to keep fighting, I do not know how long I can keep fighting

:03:32.:03:35.

for. Some days I feel it is worth it and others I think it is not. But I

:03:36.:03:42.

have got to live a normal lhfe, I am 29, not eating nine. She works as a

:03:43.:03:49.

keener looking for `` looking after elderly people in their homds by Chi

:03:50.:03:54.

does not feel the NHS is looking after her. Realistically, what

:03:55.:03:57.

chance is there of Lyndsay getting this treatment paid for on the

:03:58.:04:01.

health service? The decision could go either way. The good news is that

:04:02.:04:06.

after we have identified thhs case the NHS locally have said they will

:04:07.:04:12.

come up with a policy. The bad news is, that process is likely to take

:04:13.:04:18.

months, the real do not movd fast in the NHS. How likely is it the

:04:19.:04:26.

implant will work? That is ` good question. Clearly the consultant

:04:27.:04:31.

believes it is something worth going for. She feels as though shd has

:04:32.:04:35.

nothing to lose but the NHS has to make sure the taxpayers mondy is

:04:36.:04:40.

used in a cost`effective wax so they will want to look at all thd

:04:41.:04:43.

evidence. And I gather her LP has taken up the fight? Yes, tonight we

:04:44.:04:49.

have heard from the Labour LP for Ashfield who says she has written to

:04:50.:04:58.

the NHS to add them to rethhnk their decision on this procedure. She says

:04:59.:05:02.

she will take it all the wax the top `` to the top, to the Health

:05:03.:05:07.

Secretary, to get the decishon they want. A new method of combating

:05:08.:05:11.

bullying is being rolled out to all schools across Leicestershire. It's

:05:12.:05:13.

called the Restorative Approach and it encourages pupils to resolve

:05:14.:05:16.

their disputes themselves. Two colleges have been piloting the

:05:17.:05:20.

scheme for over a year and both have seen a dramatic improvement in

:05:21.:05:30.

behaviour. Quentin Rayner rdports. You both have to make sure to allow

:05:31.:05:35.

the other person to talk. Hdre and they have embraced the restorative

:05:36.:05:39.

approach. These are student volunteers who over the past year

:05:40.:05:42.

have brought Willie and victim together, made them reflect on their

:05:43.:05:49.

behaviour and resolve the dhspute. We do not say do this and do that,

:05:50.:05:54.

we guide them to come to a decision by themselves so it is not like it

:05:55.:06:00.

used to be saying you stay there and you steered there and getting them

:06:01.:06:06.

separate. It feels a more normal talking to someone around your age

:06:07.:06:11.

rather than an older teacher because they understand the lot mord than

:06:12.:06:18.

maybe what the teacher would. The approach has produced some startling

:06:19.:06:24.

results. It has been used shnce the late 1960s in Denmark. Therd has

:06:25.:06:31.

been a reduction of exclusions, down by 75%. Attendance has been

:06:32.:06:36.

improved. It has had a very positive impact. The role culture of the

:06:37.:06:43.

students and school have ch`nged. People get on better. Now, with the

:06:44.:06:55.

help of an online support P`ck, all schools across the city and county

:06:56.:06:59.

are being encouraged to introduce the new approach. They will need

:07:00.:07:04.

some help with their training, schools will be able to look at it

:07:05.:07:08.

and think where can I start, they will have information and c`n find

:07:09.:07:15.

out who to contact to get stpport. Where they targeted the schdme in

:07:16.:07:24.

this school exclusions have half. It is the philosophy that you talk

:07:25.:07:28.

about it, if you are thinking about doing it, talk about the whole

:07:29.:07:32.

issue. It is not just about bullying but about behaviour as a whole.

:07:33.:07:41.

Talking is better than war. Still to come: England v Uruguay. A far`away

:07:42.:07:46.

game that's good for business back home. Bars and shops are reporting

:07:47.:07:49.

bumper takings as fans get behind the national team. We'll have a

:07:50.:08:02.

special report from Leicestdr. In other news this evening.

:08:03.:08:06.

Nottingham's Queens Medical Centre has been ordered to pay ?8 lillion

:08:07.:08:10.

in compensation after a babx boy was left with severe brain damage. The

:08:11.:08:13.

High Court ruled the hospit`l "failed to provide adequate"

:08:14.:08:15.

post`natal treatment after the boy was born in 2006. Now seven, he has

:08:16.:08:20.

cerebral palsy and acute le`rning difficulties, needing round the

:08:21.:08:24.

clock care. The Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has

:08:25.:08:29.

publicly apologised. The jury has retired to consider its verdict on

:08:30.:08:32.

seven men and a youth chargdd with murdering four members of the same

:08:33.:08:38.

family in a botched arson attack. Shenila Taufiq and her thred

:08:39.:08:41.

children died in the blaze `t their home on Wood Hill in Leicester last

:08:42.:08:45.

September. It's claimed the fire was a revenge attack for the st`bbing of

:08:46.:08:49.

the gang's friend earlier that evening. But they'd got the wrong

:08:50.:08:53.

house. All defendants deny the charges. And the jury has rdtired to

:08:54.:09:01.

consider its verdict in the trial of a husband and wife accused of

:09:02.:09:04.

murdering her parents and then burying their bodies in thehr back

:09:05.:09:07.

garden in Mansfield. Susan `nd Christopher Edwards formerlx of

:09:08.:09:10.

Dagenham deny murdering her parents in Forest Town in Mansfield in 998.

:09:11.:09:15.

The prosecution say they shot dead William and Patricia Wycherley

:09:16.:09:17.

because they wanted to steal their money. There's been major traffic

:09:18.:09:23.

disruption on the M1 in Leicestershire today after ` lorry

:09:24.:09:27.

caught fire. The problems bdgan at 8:30 this morning near junction 23a.

:09:28.:09:32.

These pictures were taken bx people near the scene. There was stationary

:09:33.:09:36.

traffic for much of the day after the M1 was closed northbound between

:09:37.:09:40.

junction 22 for Coalville and the A42 turn`off. Diversions added

:09:41.:09:45.

around two hours to peoples' journeys. Two lanes of the

:09:46.:09:47.

northbound carriageway have now re`opened. Tributes have bedn paid

:09:48.:09:54.

to two men who died when thdir light aircraft plunged into a field.

:09:55.:09:58.

70`year`old John Gill and 76`year`old Alan Eaves died at the

:09:59.:10:02.

scene of the crash next to the M1 in Nottinghamshire last Saturd`y.

:10:03.:10:06.

Witnesses say the aircraft `ppeared to have been deliberately steered

:10:07.:10:11.

away from the motorway. An investigation into the causd of the

:10:12.:10:14.

crash is continuing. With more details, here's Simon Hare. The

:10:15.:10:24.

aftermath of the accident that claimed two lives. The men who died

:10:25.:10:29.

here on Saturday have now bden named. A 70 and 76`year`old. The

:10:30.:10:37.

local councillor had known one of the men for many years. He was a

:10:38.:10:46.

very experienced pilot, it was terrible news. Not only am H shocked

:10:47.:10:51.

but everybody who knows him too Our hearts go out to his wife for her

:10:52.:11:00.

terrible loss. And he did a tour of work for the local communitx? It was

:11:01.:11:05.

his tenacity which pooled as through a very big issue, the prospdct of

:11:06.:11:10.

having one of the biggest l`ndfill sites in our `` in Europe coming to

:11:11.:11:14.

our region. Deezer drawn from where the men had

:11:15.:11:33.

taken off has been closed in the wake of the accident. `` thdy even

:11:34.:11:52.

withdrawn. `` aerodrome. Anx known medical condition has been ruled out

:11:53.:11:58.

as a cause. There is an ongoing investigation. They shouldn't be a

:11:59.:12:04.

problem, but the trouble is, a lot of taxi journeys are. Disputes,

:12:05.:12:07.

incidents, even assaults can cause serious problems for the drhver or

:12:08.:12:17.

the passenger, or both. Now, officials in Nottingham are publicly

:12:18.:12:20.

funding a new scheme to install CCTV cameras in the city's hackndy cabs.

:12:21.:12:24.

They hope it'll protect drivers from abuse and make passengers fdel

:12:25.:12:31.

safer. James Roberson reports. This is an area where thousands of

:12:32.:12:35.

students live in Nottingham and where hundreds of taxi rides per

:12:36.:12:39.

week are taken from these houses into town. Now they can all be safer

:12:40.:12:46.

thanks to CCTV at last fittdd into these cabs. It is activated once the

:12:47.:12:53.

engine is switched on and c`nnot be interfered with by the drivdr. Each

:12:54.:13:01.

driver pays up to ?250 towards it but the rest is paid for by the

:13:02.:13:10.

council as a result of action by the Police And Crime Commissiondrs. The

:13:11.:13:16.

scheme was officially launched at Nottingham University. Studdnts are

:13:17.:13:23.

the biggest users of taxis hn the city. It is something we felt

:13:24.:13:30.

strongly about. Sometimes you can be an easy target in terms of getting

:13:31.:13:35.

ripped off by taxi drivers. We fully support this scheme and are very

:13:36.:13:41.

proud of it. I have felt a few stories where students have not felt

:13:42.:13:48.

safe on nights out. This is a good week for them to note that they will

:13:49.:13:55.

be OK. There has long been ` campaign for better protecthon for

:13:56.:14:01.

taxi drivers themselves. If you are racially abused in your offhce or

:14:02.:14:06.

workplace anyone will say that is unacceptable. So how can it be

:14:07.:14:10.

acceptable for hard`working taxi drivers to be racially abusdd or

:14:11.:14:19.

verbally attacked? I am surd we are all happy to have this sort of

:14:20.:14:24.

scheme and cameras in the c`b. Safety for me and my customdr as

:14:25.:14:30.

well. It is hoped that eventually all 400 cabs will be fitted with the

:14:31.:14:37.

CCTV system in Nottingham. Dducation officials in Derbyshire say 40

:14:38.:14:40.

children were stopped and qtestioned about being out of school in just

:14:41.:14:43.

two days. Council officials carried out the checks in South Derbyshire

:14:44.:14:46.

last week, stopping children as young as six, in known truancy

:14:47.:14:50.

hotspots. They say all but one of the youngsters were with adtlts

:14:51.:14:53.

They're now liaising with schools to investigate whether permisshon was

:14:54.:14:56.

granted for the absences. Workers at Nottingham's Imperial Tobacco have

:14:57.:14:58.

voted to accept a redundancx package, described as "substantial"

:14:59.:15:04.

by the union UNITE. The sitd on Thane Road will close in Max 20`16,

:15:05.:15:18.

with the loss of 540 jobs. `` 2 16. The first round of redundancies will

:15:19.:15:22.

be made in December of this year. And the use of new`style hanging

:15:23.:15:25.

baskets in one part of Notthngham is proving something of a thorny issue.

:15:26.:15:28.

That's because some of the flowers being used by Rushcliffe Borough

:15:29.:15:31.

Council in West Bridgford are fake. It says the plastic petals `re part

:15:32.:15:35.

of a pilot scheme to help it save thousands of pounds a year. But some

:15:36.:15:39.

community groups in the are` say the baskets have lost their bloom. Now,

:15:40.:15:43.

we are of course just minutds away from England's second match of the

:15:44.:15:46.

World Cup against Uruguay. Xes, football fans across the region have

:15:47.:15:49.

been buying their bunting, flying their flags and now many will be

:15:50.:15:54.

gathering in pubs ahead of the game. England's involvement in thd

:15:55.:15:56.

tournament stands to give otr local economy a real boost, but ddfeat

:15:57.:16:00.

tonight could see them knocked out by next week. Tom Brown reports now

:16:01.:16:06.

on how the World Cup in Brazil is being embraced, and exploitdd, by

:16:07.:16:08.

businesses here. Training for tonight's match the

:16:09.:16:22.

England players knew they c`rried the nation's expectation on their

:16:23.:16:27.

shoulders. Fans are ready for the latest chapter in England's World

:16:28.:16:33.

Cup story. They all hope it will not be one of their last. Feeling

:16:34.:16:43.

confident. I think we will sneak it. Success for England means stccess

:16:44.:16:49.

for our local pubs. We are dxpecting another busy one, hopefully at

:16:50.:16:54.

capacity again. We just need England to get those three points so they

:16:55.:16:59.

have the chance of qualifying and we think people will stay to cdlebrate.

:17:00.:17:08.

Other shops have benefited from the desire of fans to look the part

:17:09.:17:15.

They cannot get enough of the bunting. Once we put it out, it is

:17:16.:17:22.

gone. The chamber of mercy says the World Cup will be worth ?100 million

:17:23.:17:30.

to our local economy. `` ch`mber of core mercy. Defeat for Engl`nd cooed

:17:31.:17:38.

see them exit the competition by next Tuesday which would not just be

:17:39.:17:42.

bad news for Rooney and call but for businesses here. What would it mean

:17:43.:17:48.

for you if England got knocked out early? Disappointing. We wotld have

:17:49.:17:55.

to start taking things down in the shop but we still have Brazhl

:17:56.:18:01.

bunting. We are showing every single game and have good responses from

:18:02.:18:07.

other teams as well. Nothing appears to the atmosphere in an England

:18:08.:18:19.

World Cup match. We hope thdy will be extending their stay in Brazil.

:18:20.:18:22.

Staying with the World Cup ` and later in the programme, Navtej Johal

:18:23.:18:26.

has been picking up a few thps from the home nation Brazil. Yes, these

:18:27.:18:34.

kids may have been learning how to play football the Brazilian way but

:18:35.:18:39.

tonight they are all cheering on one team. Now sport. First, Leicester

:18:40.:18:51.

City midfielder Danny Drinkwater is backing former Manchester United

:18:52.:18:54.

team mate, Wayne Rooney, to perform for England against Uruguay, in

:18:55.:18:56.

their crucial World Cup gamd tonight. Drinkwater signed ` new

:18:57.:19:01.

four year contract at Leicester this week. Natalie Jackson reports.

:19:02.:19:11.

Leicester City's player of the year, Danny Drinkwater, says now the

:19:12.:19:17.

fixtures are out the Premier League dream feels real. This year he

:19:18.:19:20.

signed a four`year contract with Leicester. They want eventu`lly to

:19:21.:19:28.

get weird they want to be in the higher half of the Premier League. I

:19:29.:19:36.

just want to be a part of that. He joined in January 2012 in a ?1

:19:37.:19:42.

million deal. His contract was due to expire next year and he says he

:19:43.:19:46.

is confident that over the summer the club can retain their

:19:47.:19:52.

championship winning team. Ht is a tight`knit club so keeping the

:19:53.:19:56.

players were we are, as strong as we are, it is something I would

:19:57.:20:03.

definitely back. He scored dight goals last season and believes his

:20:04.:20:07.

team have a good chance of staying in the top flight. Obviouslx we

:20:08.:20:14.

would love to finish as high as we possibly can but staying in the

:20:15.:20:17.

Premier League we would be happy with for sure. He says he would

:20:18.:20:23.

happily stay with Leicester for the rest of his career. At Notthngham

:20:24.:20:27.

Forest, Stuart Pearce has m`de his third new signing as the Reds

:20:28.:20:29.

manager. 21`year`old former central defender Louis Laing has agreed a

:20:30.:20:33.

one`year deal. He was released by Sunderland at the end of last season

:20:34.:20:36.

and is a former England youth player. Meanwhile, at Notts County

:20:37.:20:42.

confirmation captain Alan Sheehan has turned down a new deal `nd

:20:43.:20:45.

signed for League One rivals Bradford City today. Cricket, and

:20:46.:20:52.

Leicestershire host Nottinghamshire at Grace Road in the T20 Bl`st this

:20:53.:20:55.

evening, with the Foxes still looking for their first win, since

:20:56.:20:58.

their opening victory against Derbyshire. The foxes took `n early

:20:59.:21:20.

wicket. Stunning batting saw two men make half centuries. Leicestershire

:21:21.:21:31.

going well in the case `` Chase Commentary of the game is on your

:21:32.:21:46.

BBC local radio station. Kick`off is just under ten minutes away, but

:21:47.:21:50.

before we go, we have just the thing to whet your appetite ahead of the

:21:51.:21:54.

England match. Yes, we may be 6 000 miles from Brazil, but in a little

:21:55.:21:58.

corner of Nottingham a group of children have been learning football

:21:59.:22:00.

skills inspired by the five`times world champions. Could therd be a

:22:01.:22:05.

future England star among them? Navtej Johal has been to sed them in

:22:06.:22:14.

action. Flex, tricks and glorious free kicks. This is football

:22:15.:22:22.

Brazilian style but we are not in Sao Paulo, we are in Saint @nne 's.

:22:23.:22:28.

For over two years now the central Brazilian soccer school has been

:22:29.:22:31.

teaching kids how to play the beautiful game. Here the pl`y the

:22:32.:22:39.

skill `based version of football played in Brazil with a smaller

:22:40.:22:46.

ball. It is different. We spent a more time on the ball encouraging

:22:47.:22:51.

kids to be expressive, take risks and be comfortable on the b`ll.

:22:52.:22:56.

Children come here never having played football before in their

:22:57.:23:01.

lives and progressing directly through football academies like

:23:02.:23:06.

Nottingham Forest. I like playing in matches and playing with my friends.

:23:07.:23:11.

They help you learn and do not just say do this and do that, thdy

:23:12.:23:16.

actually teach you and if you cannot do stuff, they help you. I tsed to

:23:17.:23:22.

not be able to pass the ball properly but now I can. The skills

:23:23.:23:30.

are all well and good but tonight they are only cheering on one team.

:23:31.:23:36.

England are going to win, it is going to be 2`0. 2`1 to England 2`1

:23:37.:23:50.

to Uruguay. Why Uruguay? Because England are rubbish. So the mood may

:23:51.:23:57.

be mainly, mainly optimistic for now. What a fantastic place and

:23:58.:24:07.

doesn't he have the moves? He certainly does. They are all

:24:08.:24:11.

brilliant and impressive. Now the weather. It is the settled condition

:24:12.:24:21.

this week. Much warmer here in the East Midlands. Now complaints

:24:22.:24:28.

temperature wise but if you are suffering he Fever at the moment you

:24:29.:24:32.

may have some complaints thdre. Pollen levels are set to relain high

:24:33.:24:37.

for the rest of the week. Tomorrow is a dry day and I am expecting

:24:38.:24:42.
