Now on BBC One, it's time for the news where you

spoken about their ordeal in Afghanistan. They told our

:00:26.:00:28.

correspondence how they werd attacked from three sides while

:00:29.:00:35.

raiding Caliban strongholds. A heartfelt welcome from cheering

:00:36.:00:38.

crowds in Leicester City centre but the last eight months, the ninth 12

:00:39.:00:42.

Royal Lancers had a much more hostile reception in Helmand

:00:43.:00:44.

province where they were targeting the tally van's strongholds ``

:00:45.:00:51.

Caliban strongholds. We would identify the gunmen, the rocket

:00:52.:00:54.

teams and suicide bombings, and the task was to neutralise the threat

:00:55.:01:06.

the soldiers were sent on operations like this and were sent behhnd enemy

:01:07.:01:10.

lines from helicopters. Thex would form on the edges of us and attack

:01:11.:01:16.

the groups, they would attack is from 300 or 600 metres away and we

:01:17.:01:20.

would have to identify them before they could engage us. There was a

:01:21.:01:26.

huge machine gun over to thd left and we had some kind of single round

:01:27.:01:31.

fire, and then to the right some other kind of machine gun. Xou are

:01:32.:01:35.

getting attack from three shdes How frightening is this? It's a real

:01:36.:01:39.

issue for the young lads, so it s a firefight and then move on. Other

:01:40.:01:45.

soldiers supported them using warthog armoured trucks working with

:01:46.:01:52.

local troops. It remains prdtty dangerous. On any single dax we

:01:53.:01:56.

recovered over 2000 rounds of ammunition and a number of rockets,

:01:57.:01:59.

and that was done in a single operation. That took place hn the

:02:00.:02:03.

area where we lost a soldier two months prior. The Lancers all made

:02:04.:02:10.

it back from Afghanistan, btt two of their soldiers came back to

:02:11.:02:12.

Leicestershire with serious injuries, and this week 's parades

:02:13.:02:15.

are a chance to thank them for putting their lives on the line

:02:16.:02:28.

Now, "the lowest of the low". That's how patients describd thieves

:02:29.:02:33.

who stole thousands of pounds of donations from a cancer charity

:02:34.:02:35.

They smashed their way into the centre, in the grounds of Nottingham

:02:36.:02:37.

City Hospital. A man's been

:02:38.:02:41.

Today has not been great as patients at this singing class were putting a

:02:42.:02:49.

brave face on the burglaries. It is a service the people who ard already

:02:50.:02:54.

suffering. I don't think thd people that did this could get any lower.

:02:55.:02:59.

Lower than scum. The servicd this place gives affects all of ts in

:03:00.:03:07.

Nottingham. People that do this sort of thing don't realise how luch hurt

:03:08.:03:13.

they are causing us. The thheves forced their way in through his door

:03:14.:03:17.

and then into the office. It was just hours after the summer fare for

:03:18.:03:23.

the centre and they stole computers. Basically it is the four Apple Mac

:03:24.:03:27.

computers we use, plus a laptop and the worst thing is that the sake

:03:28.:03:31.

that contain the proceeds which had gone well, plus any contribttions

:03:32.:03:35.

made last week, so a fairly substantial amount of cash. Anna had

:03:36.:03:39.

given up her Sunday to raisd money selling summer cocktails. Wd made

:03:40.:03:44.

about ?180 in two hours, whhch is quite amazing. We did reallx well.

:03:45.:03:49.

The strawberries went down well And the pins. After three burgl`ries,

:03:50.:03:54.

computers have been taken bdfore, and the Centre is now reviewing

:03:55.:03:56.

security with the police. A man's been found guilty of

:03:57.:04:06.

murdering a Derby bus driver, who'd David Hunter was found dead outside

:04:07.:04:09.

his home at Breadsall Hilltop Heteny Tarsoly will be sentdnced

:04:10.:04:13.

on Wednesday at Derby Crown Court. A public meeting's been called to

:04:14.:04:16.

discuss a village's concerns about County Council has served

:04:17.:04:19.

an abatement notice on Lood`ll Farm It says the farmer has pledged to do

:04:20.:04:23.

what he can to improve the situation, but residents want

:04:24.:04:26.

assurances they won't face We have to cover up any food that is

:04:27.:04:39.

out and even cover up the c`t food. Things like that. This year the

:04:40.:04:44.

problem has been far worse than previous years, and we want to

:04:45.:04:48.

prevent it happening again, year on year on year.

:04:49.:04:51.

Nearly ?2 million is to be spent recruiting more staff to provide

:04:52.:04:54.

free school meals for infants from September.

:04:55.:04:56.

That's just in Nottinghamshhre, as the county serves up an extra 1 ,000

:04:57.:04:59.

meals a day when government`funded plans are introduced.

:05:00.:05:05.

They've turned up the heat hn the kitchen today at this primary near

:05:06.:05:11.

Nottingham. The pressure is on to provide an extra 75 school dinners.

:05:12.:05:18.

That will be expected every day from September when free school leals are

:05:19.:05:21.

introduced for the infants, the three youngest year groups. We need

:05:22.:05:27.

more pans, chopping boards, more worktop space, but new worktops have

:05:28.:05:33.

been delivered this morning for September, so we will see. @t the

:05:34.:05:39.

moment, Nottinghamshire serves up around 38,000 school meals per day.

:05:40.:05:43.

That will go up by about 12,000 a day in September. The countx is

:05:44.:05:49.

investing ?1.7 million in khtchen expansions and improvements. And

:05:50.:05:54.

they are recruiting another 120 staff. The whole idea was something

:05:55.:05:57.

of a surprise when it was announced by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick

:05:58.:06:01.

Clegg late last year. Maybe there were sceptics who thought they might

:06:02.:06:08.

not follow through but clearly it is the case that it is happening, hence

:06:09.:06:15.

the trial run today. It is ` huge challenge but one we are excited

:06:16.:06:18.

about and we are sure with `ll of the planning in place that we will

:06:19.:06:23.

be ready. Free school meals for infants could save parents or carers

:06:24.:06:27.

?400 per year, cash at the County Council believes might be used to

:06:28.:06:32.

pay for a meal for an older sibling meaning even more school dinners

:06:33.:06:33.

would be needed. I will be back with you at

:06:34.:06:42.

lunchtime, but I will leave you with the weather.

:06:43.:06:46.

A big improvement compared to the weekend with a lot of dry wdather

:06:47.:06:50.

and we are staying with that the rest of the week. We will sde lots

:06:51.:06:54.

of sunshine, particularly through Tuesday and Wednesday althotgh a bit

:06:55.:06:57.

cloudy through Thursday and Friday, but the big thing is that it is

:06:58.:07:01.

warming up with temperatures up to 23 degrees by Wednesday. We stay dry

:07:02.:07:07.

and clear for much of the nhght and the winds are light allowing the

:07:08.:07:10.

temperatures to fall sharplx, so we are downing single figures, seven or

:07:11.:07:15.

eight Celsius but just about staying in double figures in the towns and

:07:16.:07:20.

city centres. Tomorrow, lovdly dry and bright start with sunshhne in

:07:21.:07:23.

the morning and we will see the clouds increasing from time to time

:07:24.:07:27.

but we will stay dry with ddcent sunshine in the afternoon and

:07:28.:07:31.

temperatures a bit higher up to 20 Celsius. From the outlook, dven

:07:32.:07:33.

warmer on fine weather for Friday, before it

:07:34.:07:33.

turns unsettled to tr weekend. There were a few aspects to the

:07:34.:07:47.

forecast today which did not go to plan.

:07:48.:07:50.

There were more showers than expected. The ones which did develop

:07:51.:07:55.

were heavy. They moved through Wimbledon and west London. They have

:07:56.:07:59.

fizzled out now. We have some showers over parts of Scotland.

:08:00.:08:05.

Most places will miss showers tomorrow and stay dry. We have

:08:06.:08:07.
