potentially brutal. Sunday, scattered showers but the driest day

:00:00.3:59:59

of the weekend. This is East Midlands Today with

:00:00.:00:39.

Dominic Heale and me, Geeta Pendse. Tonight ` the Health Trust facing a

:00:40.:00:50.

?400 million black hole. Thd NHL `` NHS health trust in trouble. And

:00:51.:00:57.

what is happening tonight whth the life`savers. Good evening. Welcome

:00:58.:01:07.

to the programme. First tonhght a massive shake up of the NHS in

:01:08.:01:11.

Leicester as it confronts a funding crisis. We're being told, whthout a

:01:12.:01:14.

radical shake up, the money will run out, services will have to be

:01:15.:01:17.

slashed and even patient safety could be compromised. Doing nothing,

:01:18.:01:20.

NHS bosses say, would lead to hundreds of millions of pounds of

:01:21.:01:26.

debt in just a few years. It's likely to mean fewer beds in our big

:01:27.:01:30.

hospitals. Our health correspondent Rob Sissons is at Leicester General.

:01:31.:01:44.

Good evening, Rob. Good evening We are told those problems will stack

:01:45.:01:49.

up quick unless something is done. To the tune of ?400 million

:01:50.:01:59.

overspend by 2018 at the projections. We cannot keep up with

:02:00.:02:08.

the rising population. Therd will be a 12% increase in the number of

:02:09.:02:13.

people aged over 65 in the next five years. The solution is a radical

:02:14.:02:18.

shake`up which will mean gohng from three acute hospitals to two.

:02:19.:02:28.

Intensive care, complex surgery and the maternity unit at the gdneral

:02:29.:02:36.

could be transferred to two other hospitals in Leicester. Thrde acute

:02:37.:02:39.

sites are now longer afford`ble or viable. If we do not change

:02:40.:02:46.

something they will be in sdrious trouble in a a few years' thme.

:02:47.:02:53.

Firstly, we will not be abld to sustain clinically the servhces we

:02:54.:02:57.

have at the moment and secondly we will not have enough money so they

:02:58.:03:02.

will be piecemeal cuts. We want to avoid that at all costs. Thdy are

:03:03.:03:09.

seeing more patients over 60 like this one, the NHS has to spdnd money

:03:10.:03:15.

smarter and provide new specialist facilities for patients with

:03:16.:03:22.

dementia. I was in a ward whth five people, for had dementia and me It

:03:23.:03:27.

is the night near being in the ward with them, they scream all night

:03:28.:03:33.

long. Without brave and bold decisions the NHS system will

:03:34.:03:41.

collapse. Practitioners are struggling, no doubt you will have

:03:42.:03:45.

heard patients cannot get appointments with their GP very

:03:46.:03:49.

often and we need to look at things in a different way, how we can

:03:50.:03:57.

provide services. The plan hs to shift services closer to thd homes

:03:58.:04:01.

of patients in the communitx. Saying that is one thing, delivering it is

:04:02.:04:09.

quite another. You have got to get community care right first. That, to

:04:10.:04:14.

me, is an absolute given. It will be one thing we will be really arguing

:04:15.:04:21.

for. So, Rob, some big and bold plans, but will it work? Th`t is the

:04:22.:04:29.

big question. If they do not it will be over to the politicians to see

:04:30.:04:35.

what happens next. There have been planned in the past talking about

:04:36.:04:40.

moving here out of hospitals and closer to the homes of patidnts

:04:41.:04:44.

They say the big difference this time is that if and parts of the NHS

:04:45.:04:51.

and social services are all in this together. They will be a different

:04:52.:04:57.

culture where everyone goes for the same aim. We will have to sde. Thank

:04:58.:05:03.

you. Legal proceedings have begun to remove a group of travellers from a

:05:04.:05:08.

busy car park. Around 20 caravans are on the Park and Ride site at

:05:09.:05:12.

Pride Park in Derby. The City Council says it's served thdm with

:05:13.:05:18.

an order to leave. To tell ts more, Simon Hare joins us from our Derby

:05:19.:05:25.

studio now. Good evening. It is thought the caravans arrived at the

:05:26.:05:30.

site sometime over the weekdnd. There are around 20 caravans their

:05:31.:05:35.

into parts of the park and ride car park. Some are next to Derbx County

:05:36.:05:42.

stadium and others near the new velodrome or multi sports arena that

:05:43.:05:47.

is being built. The car park does remain open to the public and it was

:05:48.:05:52.

thought the travellers got `ccess to the site as the barriers ard left up

:05:53.:05:59.

overnight to allow people to retrieve their cars at any time of

:06:00.:06:06.

day. When we visited the site today to try to get a comment frol the

:06:07.:06:11.

travellers we were threatendd and had to beat a hasty retreat. So how

:06:12.:06:16.

long could it be before thex have to move? The council says it is

:06:17.:06:23.

treating this as a matter of priority. They issued the notice to

:06:24.:06:28.

leave on Monday and because they have not done so they are now going

:06:29.:06:34.

through court, there is a hdaring for this on Wednesday. At the

:06:35.:06:40.

hearing the council will repuest an order for possession and if granted

:06:41.:06:44.

it will be served on the tr`vellers later that day. Bailiffs will then

:06:45.:06:50.

set the date and time for any conviction to be carried out. The

:06:51.:06:56.

travellers told us they planned to leave on in the next few daxs but

:06:57.:07:02.

the local newspaper said thdy were told the travellers had no such

:07:03.:07:07.

aims. Meanwhile a barrier h`s been put up in Leicester to prevdnt

:07:08.:07:10.

travellers returning to an unauthorised site in Beaumont Leys.

:07:11.:07:13.

The obstruction has been buhlt on Beaumont Leys Lane to prevent

:07:14.:07:16.

vehicles moving on to the grass verge. It's been put up by the City

:07:17.:07:19.

Council and will eventually be planted with flowers. Bosses say the

:07:20.:07:22.

obstruction will be too large for anyone to move without conshderable

:07:23.:07:26.

effort. An investigation into claims against Jimmy Savile, has found that

:07:27.:07:29.

children were sexually abusdd at a former convalescent home in

:07:30.:07:33.

Leicestershire. The victims were residents at Roecliffe Manor at

:07:34.:07:36.

Woodhouse Eaves in the 1950s and 60s. The attacks are now behng

:07:37.:07:40.

investigated by Leicestershhre Police. But it wasn't clear whether

:07:41.:07:44.

Jimmy Savile was actually the man who carried out the abuse at

:07:45.:07:49.

Roecliffe. Tax workers in the region are on strike today in a dispute

:07:50.:07:53.

over job cuts. The walk`out forms part of a week of rolling strikes

:07:54.:07:57.

affecting HM Revenue and Customs offices. The Public and Comlercial

:07:58.:08:01.

Services union says years of successive job cuts have left the

:08:02.:08:04.

organisation unable to cope, with delays on telephone lines and

:08:05.:08:10.

backlogs of post. It says there are also plans to close a number of

:08:11.:08:20.

offices. Ultimately the plan is to reduced to 15 locations nathonally

:08:21.:08:27.

and to shed another 12 to 18,00 jobs depending on what happdns.

:08:28.:08:38.

Coming up: A young fashion designer who's already caught the eyd of a

:08:39.:08:41.

high street chain. Chanel Folkes beat hundreds of students to design

:08:42.:08:44.

garments for M, we look at what it's like to take the first step

:08:45.:08:51.

into the industry. A union says it's shocked and terrified by proposed

:08:52.:08:54.

cuts which would see over 100 firefighters lose their jobs. The

:08:55.:09:00.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service has to save over ?7 million

:09:01.:09:05.

over the next five years. Fhre chiefs say lives won't be ptt at

:09:06.:09:14.

risk. Quentin Rayner reports. Firefighters training this lorning

:09:15.:09:20.

but if the cuts go through their numbers could be reduced by up to

:09:21.:09:27.

one quarter. My members are in shock at the moment. We are terrified

:09:28.:09:32.

terrified for our own safetx and for the safety of the public. The

:09:33.:09:38.

implications of what has bedn suggested are so significant. Is it

:09:39.:09:44.

your view that lives will bd put at risk by these proposed cuts? Yes,

:09:45.:09:50.

either firefighters lives or the lives of the public. Leicester will

:09:51.:09:58.

lose the fire engine as well to other bases. Fire chiefs accept the

:09:59.:10:06.

service will not BBC but insist people will not be put in extra

:10:07.:10:13.

danger. It does ensure we are able to meet the risk in that particular

:10:14.:10:20.

area. With the proposals we have put forward we believe we can still

:10:21.:10:24.

maintain adequate resources against the risk in particular areas so

:10:25.:10:29.

therefore we believe that is the case. In Leicestershire there will

:10:30.:10:35.

be a small rise in council tax to reduce the cuts to the servhce, if

:10:36.:10:41.

that is not possible the cuts will come into force next April. A doctor

:10:42.:10:46.

in Derby has opened a shop selling electronic cigarettes in a bid to

:10:47.:10:49.

persuade smokers to quit. John Ashcroft started the store because

:10:50.:10:51.

he believes E`Cigarettes can help people kick the habit. Hundreds of

:10:52.:10:55.

patients have now tried thel and he insists they've very safe. @ny

:10:56.:11:03.

profit he makes will go to charity. I spent many years trying to stop

:11:04.:11:08.

people smoking, I prescribe the lot of nicotine replacement and

:11:09.:11:13.

medication and still do but many smokers are not ready to stop and

:11:14.:11:20.

this is a great alternative. It is dramatically savour compared to

:11:21.:11:26.

cigarettes. `` safer. Newark's new MP has made his maiden speech in the

:11:27.:11:30.

House of Commons. Conservathve Robert Jenrick won the seat in a

:11:31.:11:37.

by`election three weeks ago. Traditionally, new MPs use the

:11:38.:11:40.

maiden speech to pay tributd to their constituency ` but Robert

:11:41.:11:43.

Jenrick admitted that many of his colleagues already know the area

:11:44.:11:46.

well. It is almost unnecess`ry for me to tell the How's about ly

:11:47.:11:53.

constituency because many rhght on rubble members are already

:11:54.:11:58.

surprisingly familiar with ht. It has been said in Newark has not seen

:11:59.:12:02.

so many parliamentarians since the end of the Civil War. True dnough!

:12:03.:12:16.

Every summer hundreds of design students graduate here in the East

:12:17.:12:19.

Midlands. All hoping to makd it in the hugely competitive world of

:12:20.:12:22.

fashion. Key to their success is obtaining industry experience. In

:12:23.:12:25.

the second of our series on local designers, I met a 22`year`old who's

:12:26.:12:29.

already been picked up by a major high street name. Surrounded by

:12:30.:12:32.

designs for her end of year degree show, Chanel has an exciting

:12:33.:12:44.

prospect ahead. She beat dozens of students to design menswear for

:12:45.:12:54.

Marks Spencer 's. I have developed a collection to suit the customer.

:12:55.:13:02.

This is the autumn 2015 collection. The UK menswear market is a growing

:13:03.:13:08.

one so potentially lucrativd for a young designer. She has also won the

:13:09.:13:14.

backing of the city fashion Council who are based here at London's

:13:15.:13:23.

Somerset house. This woman was on the panel who picked Chanel. Often

:13:24.:13:34.

we will just see a quick line`up, there will be a lot of thought

:13:35.:13:39.

process behind that but the development work is necessarily

:13:40.:13:51.

sheared. `` shared. It is unbelievable in a way to thhnk that

:13:52.:13:56.

now I am setting up into a career that I actually enjoy. I do not

:13:57.:14:01.

think there is anything elsd I would want to do. I am very excitdd about

:14:02.:14:09.

the future. Chanel begins a three`month placement with Larks

:14:10.:14:12.

Spencer is next week and hopes that one day her own designs will grace

:14:13.:14:18.

the catwalk in London Fashion Week. Fantastic. We wish her lots of luck.

:14:19.:14:27.

Still to come: The East Midlands Waterways Rescue team who'vd just

:14:28.:14:29.

circumnavigated Britain. Good weather, bad weather, aches, pains,

:14:30.:14:32.

drama...and even dolphins. @nd they did it, as planned, in just over

:14:33.:14:40.

nine days. Full story later. And talking about water, it is time to

:14:41.:14:46.

dig out your umbrella again. I will have your detailed forecast for the

:14:47.:14:53.

rest of the week a little l`ter Now the sport. The footballers `re back.

:14:54.:15:03.

First from me Derby County have agreed a new long term contract with

:15:04.:15:06.

midfielder Jeff Hendrick. The 22`year`old Ireland international

:15:07.:15:09.

has signed a deal that will keep him at the club until 2018. The Rams say

:15:10.:15:13.

they also hope to keep Craig Bryson after they turning down a bhd from

:15:14.:15:16.

Burnley for the midfielder yesterday. They were back at

:15:17.:15:19.

training today. Angela was there too. The summer holidays, all about

:15:20.:15:34.

a bit of relaxation. Putting your feet up may be overindulging just a

:15:35.:15:40.

little. So, spear a thought for this lot. They returned to work today and

:15:41.:15:48.

faced the dreaded fitness tdsts Everyone else seems to be struggling

:15:49.:15:53.

a little bit, I am not lookhng forward to it. You have to do it. It

:15:54.:15:59.

is the tried and tested way of making sure every player is ready

:16:00.:16:07.

for when the season gets underway. Although most of us can do the lot

:16:08.:16:12.

of damage in four weeks, thdse lads cannot. They are in good sh`pe,

:16:13.:16:17.

confident and ready to go again I'd macro it will be as much about

:16:18.:16:24.

mental as physical fitness `fter losing in the finals of the

:16:25.:16:32.

play`off. You cannot dwell on the past two long, eventually it will

:16:33.:16:38.

get the better of you. Todax the focus was about who came out on top

:16:39.:16:46.

for fitness. I just do not want to be at the bottom. I will settle for

:16:47.:16:54.

obscurity but hopefully I al not too close to the bottom. I'd macro can

:16:55.:17:00.

they go one better this timd around? They run into the ndw season

:17:01.:17:08.

is definitely on. I am glad they do not do that to us here! Now,

:17:09.:17:13.

cricket. And the Indians ard here. This summer's tourists feattre some

:17:14.:17:16.

of the Superstars of the global game. Today they began warmhng up

:17:17.:17:24.

for the test series against England by starting a three`day gamd against

:17:25.:17:33.

Leicestershire. And in a money spinner for the Foxes, many of their

:17:34.:17:36.

British based fans went to watch. Today, it was all about the visit of

:17:37.:17:44.

India to Leicestershire. It is massive. We played them thrde years

:17:45.:17:50.

ago. It was Big Ben and it hs big now. It is a great opportunhty to

:17:51.:17:55.

get ticket out to the Asian population of Leicestershird. A lot

:17:56.:18:03.

of people behind me identifx as British Indians and argue to wave

:18:04.:18:07.

the flag for their side. Thd task here is to get them coming back to

:18:08.:18:16.

the ground. We have got to give them a good experience today, we will

:18:17.:18:19.

keep in touch with them and hopefully they will come back. I am

:18:20.:18:24.

macro these guys love their cricket, I am surprised they do not come I

:18:25.:18:30.

love cricket but I do not h`ve too much time. They will come to send

:18:31.:18:40.

the message to England. I al sure we will get revenge this year. Two

:18:41.:18:45.

years ago you guys because 4`0, this year we will beat you to `0. That is

:18:46.:18:53.

my prediction. You saw it hdre first! Well India are at

:18:54.:18:57.

Leicestershire this week, Ddrbyshire next and then the much awaited Test

:18:58.:19:00.

match begins at Trent Bridgd the week after. Last year the thcket

:19:01.:19:07.

office sold out for the Ashds before Christmas, but with two weeks to go

:19:08.:19:11.

there are still tickets left for the first day of the opening match of

:19:12.:19:14.

England's Indian summer serhes. If we take the four days and the one

:19:15.:19:17.

day international that is over 85,000 tickets and in actual fact we

:19:18.:19:23.

have 3000 left. There is an appetite for Cricket in the East Midlands and

:19:24.:19:29.

we are happy that is the case. And disappointment for Nottingh`m tennis

:19:30.:19:31.

stars Jocelyn Rae and Daniel Smethurst at Wimbledon todax. Both

:19:32.:19:34.

faced tough opponents in thd doubles competition and both have gone out

:19:35.:19:38.

at the first round. Rae and partner Anna Smith took the hugely

:19:39.:19:41.

experienced Sam Stosur and Flavia Penneta to three sets. Now, you may

:19:42.:19:59.

remember when this programmd caught up with a team who promised to

:20:00.:20:02.

circumnavigate Britain in nhne days...nine hours....and nine

:20:03.:20:04.

minutes. We're talking about the men from Watersafe UK ` an inland

:20:05.:20:08.

waterways rescue team, based in Derbyshire. To raise ?50,000 for

:20:09.:20:14.

their charity AND for the RNLI, they needed to complete the 999 Challenge

:20:15.:20:18.

around our coast. But did they manage it? James Roberson rdports.

:20:19.:20:21.

Waiting on the quayside in Poole in Dorset. In February the grotp had

:20:22.:20:27.

been doing what they do voltntarily, rescuing people and Rob Petht from

:20:28.:20:34.

the floods in the Thames Valley This month they packed in Ddrby for

:20:35.:20:40.

a voyage to raise money for two charities by going around Britain in

:20:41.:20:44.

this challenge. We will do ht in nine days, nine hours and nhne

:20:45.:20:53.

minutes. Then it was off. Ahead of them 2000 miles and who knew what

:20:54.:21:02.

conditions? We have just got to keep grass. `` Cape Wrath. D9 achieved,

:21:03.:21:21.

will be make it back to pool in the remaining nine hours and nine

:21:22.:21:34.

minutes? `` the nine achievdd. We have had some rough seas but we have

:21:35.:21:39.

got there. I am macro I would do it again tomorrow. The highs wdre to

:21:40.:21:48.

swim with dolphins. Lows were 1 hours on a day becoming rather

:21:49.:21:55.

monotonous. The bonus was ?40,0 0 in all for the two charities whth

:21:56.:22:04.

barely getting wet. I bet it felt good to get to the end and the

:22:05.:22:08.

dolphins was my favourite bht. Absolutely beautiful. And the

:22:09.:22:13.

weather, there is talk of an upside`down rainbow? Yes, ydsterday

:22:14.:22:20.

evening some of you were lucky enough to spot this. It looks like a

:22:21.:22:26.

reverse rainbow. For this to a car you need the sun is especially high

:22:27.:22:32.

in the sky and ice particles inside these clouds which you can see in

:22:33.:22:38.

this picture. It is fairly rare at this time of year. Thank yot to

:22:39.:22:46.

everyone who said them to us. Tomorrow, weather`wise, it hs cloudy

:22:47.:22:52.

and cool with a scattering of heavy showers. Maybe even the odd rumble

:22:53.:22:59.

of wonder. The cloud will qtickly increase and rain arriving from the

:23:00.:23:04.

south`west. It is fairly light rain through the night with a minimum

:23:05.:23:09.

temperature of 12 Celsius. Tomorrow morning it will start cloudx and

:23:10.:23:14.

amp. You will need your umbrella heading out first thing. `` cloudy

:23:15.:23:23.

and damp. The is the yellow warning in force tomorrow afternoon with the

:23:24.:23:28.

rest of localised flooding. Top temperature 16 Celsius. Although it

:23:29.:23:35.

stays unsettled as we head hnto the weekend it looks like they will

:23:36.:23:40.

still be a good deal of dry weather but very little sunshine to be had.

:23:41.:23:47.

Remaining cool on Saturday with a high of 15 Celsius. In two Sunday

:23:48.:23:52.

low`pressure will edge away so although there is a risk of one or

:23:53.:23:57.

two showers it should be brhghter and we should see some sunshine

:23:58.:24:05.

Remaining settled into the new week. It is an improving picture. That is

:24:06.:24:13.

off from ours. Night. Make the most of your weekend,

:24:14.:24:44.

wherever you are. Use the BBC Weather App to stay

:24:45.:24:46.

one step ahead of the weather. I saw you before

:24:47.:24:53.

and I thought you were so beautiful. I always thought love

:24:54.:24:57.

would come into my life. You were with someone,

:24:58.:25:00.

so who was it? Who were you with? Murdered By My Boyfriend,

:25:01.:25:16.

a true story.
