This is East Midlands Today with so it's goodbye from me and

:00:00.:00:13.

This is East Midlands Today with Sarah Teale and me Dominic Heale.

:00:14.:00:16.

Tonight: A grieving family's agonising wait for answers. First

:00:17.:00:19.

tonight: The brother of a tdacher who was murdered on the holhday

:00:20.:00:23.

island of Bali says his famhly are enduring an agonising wait for

:00:24.:00:27.

answers about how she died. When the alleged assailant broke ten, was she

:00:28.:00:33.

asleep, did she come back to the villa and find him there? Wd do not

:00:34.:00:40.

know. And bare knuckle boxing comes to the region but is it barbaric or

:00:41.:00:47.

just a bit of fun? Plus the killer who murdered his love rival starts

:00:48.:00:58.

the 23 year jail term. And the farm where animals die of old agd. Good

:00:59.:01:05.

evening and welcome to the programme. The brother of the

:01:06.:01:13.

teacher who was murdered on the holiday island of Ali says the

:01:14.:01:23.

family are enduring an agonhsing wait for answers about how she died.

:01:24.:01:32.

`` Bali. Anne`Marie Drozdz was found dead at her home in May. Her family

:01:33.:01:35.

here in Hinckley say they'rd horrified that photographs of her

:01:36.:01:38.

body are online. And that they still have no idea about what happened.

:01:39.:01:41.

Anne`Marie's brother, Greg Drozdz spoke exclusively to our reporter

:01:42.:01:44.

Helen Astle. It has been a terrible nightmare. At times it has been

:01:45.:01:48.

overwhelming. We have thrown ourselves into the practicalities of

:01:49.:01:54.

trying to deal with the aftdrmath. Then in the quieter moments when we

:01:55.:01:58.

start to reflect we become very very sad. The 49 euros was working

:01:59.:02:09.

as a teacher in Bali. Six wdeks on from our death her family still have

:02:10.:02:15.

questions as to what happendd. Was she in the villa at the timd when

:02:16.:02:20.

the alleged assailant broke in, what's she asleep, or did she come

:02:21.:02:24.

back to the villa and find him there? We still do not know. What we

:02:25.:02:31.

do know is that she was in ` fight, it she put up the struggle `nd she

:02:32.:02:40.

lost. She was strangled with a rope. Because the Indonesian medi` is not

:02:41.:02:44.

quite as restricted as it is here you do not have to go very far

:02:45.:02:50.

before you find a picture of a corpse. Indonesian police h`ve been

:02:51.:03:00.

investigating a suspect. He has been in custody for a month. The family

:03:01.:03:10.

say the waiting for an cancdr is a nightmare. It is a very distressing

:03:11.:03:18.

time. Bali has the dual repttation, some people call it paradisd but for

:03:19.:03:32.

us it is hail. Next tonight, a bare knuckle boxing night is due to take

:03:33.:03:36.

place in Hinckley on Saturd`y. It has been described as are B`rry for

:03:37.:03:45.

some people. Our reporter h`s been following the story. `` described as

:03:46.:03:58.

barbaric. Whether it is Carol Froch at Wembley Stadium or a grotp of

:03:59.:04:06.

kids training at their local cop `` club on a Wednesday night, ht

:04:07.:04:13.

attracted interest. A planndd fight this weekend is proving

:04:14.:04:18.

controversial. The gloves are off and this man cannot wait. Hd is

:04:19.:04:25.

training for the bare knuckle boxing event at Hinckley on Saturd`y. It is

:04:26.:04:32.

exciting. It is what people want to see. It is an old generation thing

:04:33.:04:38.

that you cannot find in othdr combat sports. The hope to post thd fight

:04:39.:04:46.

here at the Hinckley United football club. Ill macro I was brought up

:04:47.:04:57.

here at a young age. It is ` gentleman's sport. Every fighter I

:04:58.:05:00.

have ever known has always been a gentleman. Today, reaction to the

:05:01.:05:10.

sport is mixed. I do not like it at all. It sounds barbaric. I think it

:05:11.:05:17.

will be good. It is a sport that has been away for many years. If they

:05:18.:05:24.

want to have a punch`up it hs their choice. I'd macro it is thotght to

:05:25.:05:30.

be one of the biggest public events of this sport in the UK. Thd

:05:31.:05:40.

question is, is it safe? Anxone participating or supporting the

:05:41.:05:45.

fight was also acting illeg`lly I do not think this has changdd. It is

:05:46.:05:50.

the practice that was banned for good reasons a century ago. We

:05:51.:05:55.

cannot have people attempting to seriously injure another person We

:05:56.:06:00.

have medics, an ambulance on stand`by, a hospital tent. Ht is

:06:01.:06:10.

better on the wall for safety. I am hoping it is a very quick fhght and

:06:11.:06:16.

I knock him out. I am a strhpper on the weekends and I have a couple of

:06:17.:06:25.

jobs booked in for after thd fight! Whether this weekend's fight is even

:06:26.:06:33.

legal should become clear l`ter in the week. Should fight like this

:06:34.:06:40.

even take place? I do not think so. It is very dangerous. You are

:06:41.:06:45.

hitting somebody's body and head with bare knuckles. You are not only

:06:46.:06:51.

damaging your own hands, it is much safer with gloves. They would say

:06:52.:06:57.

they have a long history and the long tradition, does it not deserve

:06:58.:07:02.

a place in the sports books? I do not know whether they deserve a

:07:03.:07:06.

place in history, it is all gone. You have got to be safer now. Before

:07:07.:07:14.

we hear from the police we have to assume this weekend's game will be

:07:15.:07:21.

going ahead but it is controversial. You're watching East Midlands Today.

:07:22.:07:24.

Still to come: The farm where cows can end their days naturallx, away

:07:25.:07:27.

from the shadow of the slaughterhouse. Plus, as thd pollen

:07:28.:07:36.

count peaks, a warning, it hs an offence to drive if your hax fever

:07:37.:07:38.

tablets make you drowsy. The father of two young children has

:07:39.:07:48.

been told he will serve at least 23 years in prison, for murderhng a man

:07:49.:07:51.

who was having an affair with his wife. Heteny Tarsoly was fotnd

:07:52.:07:55.

guilty on Monday of killing David Hunter with a crowbar. Sentdncing

:07:56.:08:00.

him at Derby Crown Court today, the judge said he understood thd

:08:01.:08:03.

provocation Tarsoly was suffering, but that was no justification for

:08:04.:08:09.

such a murder. James Roberson reports. It was in January this year

:08:10.:08:21.

that 54`year`old a good hunter was found dead. He had had and ` fair

:08:22.:08:26.

Isle with the hon Mary and ` fair Isle with a handy alien wom`n

:08:27.:08:28.

colleague while they both worked as bus drivers. `` he had an affair

:08:29.:08:47.

with a hunky avian colleagud. `` Hungarian. Her husband attacked Mr

:08:48.:09:01.

Hunter when he heard his wife was having a relationship with him. The

:09:02.:09:08.

judge accepted that he feardd he would lose his relationship with his

:09:09.:09:12.

wife and children because of the divorce but that was no exctse for

:09:13.:09:24.

hitting his rival with a crowbar and killing them. We are pleased justice

:09:25.:09:32.

has been served and it is over but that does not bring David b`ck. Two

:09:33.:09:39.

families have been destroyed because of the actions of that night. When

:09:40.:09:45.

released from jail, he will be deported back to Hungary. Hd is not

:09:46.:09:54.

expected to see his children again. Portuguese detectives investigating

:09:55.:09:56.

the disappearance of Leicestershire girl Madeleine McCann are bdginning

:09:57.:09:59.

to interview 11 possible witnesses. The questioning of four suspects has

:10:00.:10:02.

already taken place. Our Correspondent Jeremy Cooke has just

:10:03.:10:07.

sent this report from Praia da Luz. We now know that the questioning of

:10:08.:10:13.

the four new potential suspdcts in this case was concluded last night.

:10:14.:10:19.

Today, the focus of attention has been on a list of 11 potenthal

:10:20.:10:24.

witnesses. They have been interviewed down the road at the

:10:25.:10:31.

local police station. Local police officers have been asking the

:10:32.:10:35.

questions but Metropolitan Police officers have also been in

:10:36.:10:39.

attendance. This whole development in the case seems to have come from

:10:40.:10:46.

the work of the British teal of place officers investigating this

:10:47.:10:50.

case. No`one is making any comment on or off the record for thd link

:10:51.:11:04.

with these witnesses might be to the suspects from the case all those

:11:05.:11:12.

years ago. We were told the questioning of the four suspects was

:11:13.:11:16.

concluded yesterday evening and unfortunately the interviews have

:11:17.:11:21.

led to no new developments `nd we are back to where we were sdven

:11:22.:11:25.

years ago. A man from Nottinghamshire has been ch`rged

:11:26.:11:27.

under terrorism laws. 19`ye`r`old Adeel Ulhaq from Sutton`in`@shfield

:11:28.:11:30.

will appear before the Old Bailey on the 18th of July. It's alleged he

:11:31.:11:34.

was raising money for charity, which was to be used to fund terrorism in

:11:35.:11:44.

Syria. It has been announced the Queen is to visit Derbyshird next

:11:45.:11:51.

week. She'll be in Matlock on the 10th of July along with the Duke of

:11:52.:11:55.

Edinburgh. The royal party will visit the John Smedley knitwear

:11:56.:11:58.

factory nearby, before going to meet the crowds at Chatsworth Hotse. Next

:11:59.:12:01.

tonight: A Police Commissioner says the way to stop the children of

:12:02.:12:04.

criminals from offending thdmselves is to offer them more support. Clive

:12:05.:12:07.

Loader was speaking as agencies across Leicestershire and Rttland

:12:08.:12:10.

launched a new Young Adult Project. The aim is to stop youngsters

:12:11.:12:13.

getting involved in crime. Our Social Affairs Correspondent Jeremy

:12:14.:12:24.

Ball reports. This boy finally has somewhere to lay his hat after three

:12:25.:12:30.

years without a home. He moved to this supported bedsit just weeks

:12:31.:12:37.

before his birthday. He was only 15 when his mum kicked him out because

:12:38.:12:45.

of trouble. His life was sphralling out of control. I was staying out,

:12:46.:12:51.

drinking, I was then with the wrong crowd. It led to problems, stealing

:12:52.:12:58.

from shops, eventually I got arrested. His story is all too

:12:59.:13:08.

common. Tonight the project met to discuss how to stop young pdople

:13:09.:13:14.

getting drawn into crime in the first place. There are stark

:13:15.:13:19.

statistics about young people who end up behind bars. 25% of xoung men

:13:20.:13:28.

locked up in young offenders institutions are already fathers.

:13:29.:13:34.

65% of the children of prisoners go on to offend themselves. We can give

:13:35.:13:43.

them skills, look after thel, mentor them and give them support. When I

:13:44.:13:50.

was on my own I thought it would not make any difference, I would go to

:13:51.:13:54.

jail and I could not be doing better than I was doing anyway, I had no

:13:55.:13:59.

peers about anything. I'd m`cro he is living proof that young offenders

:14:00.:14:05.

can turn their lives around. He is at college learning skills for the

:14:06.:14:11.

music industry and he has even made up with his mum. When it coles to

:14:12.:14:16.

farming, one community group in Leicester is going back to hts

:14:17.:14:19.

roots. Plans are in place to create a dairy where cows would be milked

:14:20.:14:23.

by hand and bulls would plotgh the fields, just like they did centuries

:14:24.:14:27.

ago. And when they're too old to work, the animals won't be facing a

:14:28.:14:30.

trip to the slaughterhouse. Sumeer Kalyani's been to the Ahims` Farm to

:14:31.:14:42.

find out more. It is the ultimate retirement home for cows. These two

:14:43.:14:47.

are no longer producing milk. They will spend their old age behng

:14:48.:14:52.

looked after at this farm in Leicestershire. A cow can lhve to 20

:14:53.:15:02.

years of age but in a lot of conventional Davies they ard killed

:15:03.:15:08.

when they no longer produce milk. We do not think that is a way to treat

:15:09.:15:26.

them. `` Davies. `` Gary 's. `` dairies. We argue there is ` strong

:15:27.:15:39.

reason to use boules to clotd the earth. They do not compress the

:15:40.:15:44.

Earth and there are green rdasons like not having to use fuel. The

:15:45.:15:51.

principal of the daily foundation behind this project are keen to

:15:52.:16:02.

uphold. This is how real sl`ughter free daily farming should h`ppen.

:16:03.:16:09.

Plans are already in place to create a commercial TV farm at this site.

:16:10.:16:17.

Up to 40 cows would be milkdd by hand. `` dairy. Still to cole, slip

:16:18.:16:29.

sliding away. Bristol's had one San Francisco's had one and now, it

:16:30.:16:32.

seems, Derby is to get a gi`nt water slide of its own. Next tonight: If

:16:33.:16:36.

you get hay fever you probably have to rely upon a daily dose of

:16:37.:16:40.

antihistimines. But did you know it can be an offence to drive hf your

:16:41.:16:46.

tablets make you drowsy? Thd pollen count was at its peak today and many

:16:47.:16:50.

sufferers will have been re`ching for their medication. But ndw

:16:51.:16:54.

research shows many drivers ignore the warnings on the side of the

:16:55.:17:03.

packs. Here's Jo Healey. Thhs should be lovely, a stroll in the park on a

:17:04.:17:08.

gorgeous day but for many it just means itchy eyes, a streaming nose

:17:09.:17:15.

and constant sneezing. This morning I got to work and my eyes wdre

:17:16.:17:21.

itching and my throat was clammy. It makes your nose itchy and when you

:17:22.:17:30.

sneeze it is really annoying. Some medication for hay fever can make

:17:31.:17:36.

you unfit to drive. New resdarch shows nearly one third of drivers do

:17:37.:17:41.

not realise this and nearly one half do not even bother to check yet it

:17:42.:17:48.

is an offence to drive when unfit through drugs and that incltdes hay

:17:49.:17:55.

fever medication. A nurse who specialises in allergies saxs there

:17:56.:18:02.

are alternatives. The old ones like Britain are quite sedating. They are

:18:03.:18:08.

best to avoid if you have to drive. You have to check you are not

:18:09.:18:15.

getting drowsy on your medication. Why is the pollen count so high We

:18:16.:18:23.

had a lot of good weather through June and Noreen saw nothing to wash

:18:24.:18:32.

the pollen grains away. `` no green to wash the pollen away. `` rain.

:18:33.:18:45.

Now the sport. First from md, Derby County have reiterated midfhelder

:18:46.:18:48.

Craig Bryson isn't for sale, but has he had his head turned by the

:18:49.:18:55.

promise of the Premier Leagte? Matty James has signed a new four year

:18:56.:19:23.

deal for Leicester. QPR are said to be the latest club interestdd in

:19:24.:19:27.

signing Craig Bryson. The R`ms have already rejected a bid from Burnley,

:19:28.:19:30.

but in the last seven days Derby have secured the futures of four key

:19:31.:19:33.

players including loyal defdnder Jake Buxton, as Kirsty Edwards

:19:34.:19:38.

reports. The season ended whth grey skies over Derby. Heartbreak as the

:19:39.:19:43.

dream of Premier League was truly snatched away at the final hurdle.

:19:44.:19:50.

This is another club dwelling on what might have been. The ftture is

:19:51.:19:56.

bright and this young man is pleased to be a part of it. I am pldased I

:19:57.:20:05.

will stay. When Derby made ht clear they wanted me to stay it w`s easy

:20:06.:20:14.

to get it on. They pushed md to say I wanted to stay as well. The club

:20:15.:20:23.

are working hard to keep thd spine of the team together. Will Hughes

:20:24.:20:27.

just signed another four`ye`r contract yesterday. They recognise

:20:28.:20:36.

the commitment and quality of performance from the lads l`st

:20:37.:20:42.

season. I think it has been good for the football club. The new Deal

:20:43.:20:50.

comes five years after she joined the club. It did not take hhm long

:20:51.:20:54.

to get his name on the scordsheet and since then he has had a number

:20:55.:21:03.

of roles. He has cult hero status with the fans. He was voted player

:21:04.:21:15.

of the season last year. I dnjoyed last season. We progressed `s the

:21:16.:21:22.

season went on and the club has moved forward since I came here I

:21:23.:21:28.

just thought we could take ht one more step. Cricket and Engl`nd today

:21:29.:21:40.

confirmed Nottinghamshire's Stuart Broad is in the squad for the first

:21:41.:21:44.

test against India at Trent Bridge next week. Nottinghamshire lost

:21:45.:21:46.

their County Championship g`me against Warwickshire this afternoon

:21:47.:21:48.

by three wickers. But they've moved eight points clear at the top of the

:21:49.:21:52.

table. And in the tour match at Derbyshire. Onto tennis and on the

:21:53.:21:56.

day when Andy Murray was knocked out of Wimbledon, two East Midl`nds

:21:57.:21:59.

teenagers, one from Nottingham and one from Derby, played their first

:22:00.:22:17.

ever match at SW19. Murray's family is steeped in tennis, but otr two

:22:18.:22:21.

youngsters have made it the hard way. Mark Shardlow reports. It was

:22:22.:22:29.

quite a day for Marcus Waltdrs and a long way for the toddler who picked

:22:30.:22:39.

up a racket in front of his parents. He was two years old, I rang the

:22:40.:22:48.

tennis centre and a gentlem`n came on the phone and said if yot have

:22:49.:22:52.

got a two`year`old who can hit the ball I want to see them. He is

:22:53.:23:00.

full`time with tennis and does his schoolwork at night. The boxs both

:23:01.:23:08.

played together in the doubles. Although they put up a spirhted

:23:09.:23:17.

fight the lost 2`1. It has been really good, also getting thckets to

:23:18.:23:23.

go and see the matches. I w`s getting treated like you do as a

:23:24.:23:30.

player, free water and free towels. You get escorted to the courts. Both

:23:31.:23:35.

families have made sacrificds to get the boys this far. I am a driving

:23:36.:23:43.

instructor, I do bits of cldaning for people and I do tailoring. I am

:23:44.:23:53.

a driving instructor and his dad works for Marks Spencer 's. Well

:23:54.:24:06.

done to them both. And finally from me a huge congratulations to Katie

:24:07.:24:09.

Boulter from Woodhouse Eves in Leicestershire. Kate, who is 17 is

:24:10.:24:13.

through to the third round of the juniors. She will find out tonight

:24:14.:24:16.

at eight o'clock who she pl`ys tomorrow in her next match. Finally

:24:17.:24:19.

this evening: Bristol's had one San Francisco's had one, and now it

:24:20.:24:23.

seems, Derby is to get one too. Yes, a giant water slide, it's hoped

:24:24.:24:26.

will be coming to Mickleover later in the year, and organisers are

:24:27.:24:30.

already being flooded with hundreds of requests to take a ride on the

:24:31.:24:33.

slide. Paul Bradshaw has more. Fun in the sun. A street in Bristol was

:24:34.:24:38.

turned into a water in May with hundreds of thrill seekers riding a

:24:39.:24:42.

giant water slide. It is a scene that could soon be coming to this

:24:43.:24:47.

street. Plans are underway for a 100 metre slide to be built herd later

:24:48.:24:54.

in the year. The start of the slide will be up there. It is too

:24:55.:25:01.

inflatable sites with a slightly section in between. It will run down

:25:02.:25:10.

to the edge of these trees. He has received three times the nulber of

:25:11.:25:13.

applications than can be accommodated. I think it is a

:25:14.:25:20.

wonderful idea, especially for the kids. It is not for me personally

:25:21.:25:26.

but I think you ought of people will have a good time. Indira Gahniyeva

:25:27.:25:31.

it is a cultural thing if it carries on year after year. These grills and

:25:32.:25:38.

spill could be repeated in Derby on Sunday seven September. I al

:25:39.:25:48.

volunteering to be the reporter when that comes. I think there are a few

:25:49.:25:56.

in the studio would fancy a go. I am from Derby so I think I shotld go

:25:57.:26:04.

for you! Some pleasant sunshine around earlier today but cloud has

:26:05.:26:07.

been increasing gradually throughout the afternoon. Although the cloud

:26:08.:26:14.

will be with us tomorrow it should be remaining warm and largely drive.

:26:15.:26:20.

Pollen levels have been verx high today. They will remain that way for

:26:21.:26:26.

the next couple of days before the rain starts to clear. High pressure

:26:27.:26:34.

has been in charge giving as dry and settled weather throughout today.

:26:35.:26:38.

They will be more in the wax of cloud pushing in from the North West

:26:39.:26:44.

tonight, some fairly thick with spots of rain or drizzle. L`rgely

:26:45.:26:49.

dry for the night and mild `nd humid. The lot of high cloud around

:26:50.:26:57.

first thing on Thursday morning The cloud will continue to incrdase and

:26:58.:27:02.
