Thank you. With are back

:00:00.:00:13.

With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Victoria Hicks.

:00:14.:00:16.

The new ?2.5 million gardens by Leicester Cathedral opened today as

:00:17.:00:19.

It was the first time they've been open to the public.

:00:20.:00:24.

It also marks the start of the city's preparations

:00:25.:00:27.

for the reinterment of King Richard III next year.

:00:28.:00:29.

We declare the gardens open to the world.

:00:30.:00:39.

It's a 14th century cathedr`l with now 21st`century gardens.

:00:40.:00:43.

The project also includes a newly cleaned Richard III statue,

:00:44.:00:47.

all in preparation for next year's re`internment.

:00:48.:00:53.

The Cathedral is at the heart of the city and the county.

:00:54.:00:55.

For decades, we have dreamt of giving it a proper setting.

:00:56.:00:58.

At last we have been able to do that.

:00:59.:01:02.

The gardens are wonderful and I think it's a very big thing

:01:03.:01:04.

I think the gardens themselves are very pleasant.

:01:05.:01:12.

I think, as accompaniment to the Cathedral, the emphasis on

:01:13.:01:16.

But in difficult economic thmes there has been criticism from

:01:17.:01:23.

some quarters that the monex could have been better spent elsewhere.

:01:24.:01:27.

The church has raised very significant funds from donors

:01:28.:01:29.

New money has come in from Durope that simply wouldn't be herd if we

:01:30.:01:34.

It's about more money coming in rather than living

:01:35.:01:38.

As you can see, Richard is back to looking his best.

:01:39.:01:45.

He has been angled towards Bosworth, ready for battle.

:01:46.:01:50.

The hope is that Leicester will now be better prepared to wdlcome

:01:51.:01:53.

An emergency defibrillator has been stolen from a street in Derby.

:01:54.:02:07.

The life`saving equipment w`s installed on Victoria Street

:02:08.:02:09.

The money had been raised bx the Central United Reform Church.

:02:10.:02:15.

A few components are left, but it's now useless.

:02:16.:02:18.

Fund raisers have been left baffled by the theft.

:02:19.:02:20.

It's for somebody unfortunate who has a heart attack,

:02:21.:02:33.

and if they have a heart attack here they won't get treatment now.

:02:34.:02:40.

Naval veterans have finally got a new home,

:02:41.:02:42.

after their previous headqu`rters was demolished to make way

:02:43.:02:44.

This is the Royal Naval Association's new base in Ldnton,

:02:45.:02:48.

after being based on Arkwright Street for more than 40 years.

:02:49.:02:52.

It ends months of uncertainty for its membership, so drinks were

:02:53.:02:56.

More than 40 buskers filled the streets with music

:02:57.:03:02.

The event ended with a mass sing`along in the Old Market Square.

:03:03.:03:09.

Organised by BBC Radio Notthngham, the City Council and Dance 4,

:03:10.:03:15.

the event was inspired by local busker Frank Robinson who

:03:16.:03:18.

Everyone is smiling and happy. It was really good fun. I h`ve just

:03:19.:03:36.

come down after work. I couldn't help but stop and have a dance. We

:03:37.:03:41.

have so much in Nottingham hn terms of culture. Everyone just w`nts to

:03:42.:03:49.

be here to enjoy it. Were going to sing in a momdnt and

:03:50.:03:51.

spoil everyone's fun! After a soggy start, things have

:03:52.:04:06.

recovered. Overnight just a couple of showers as those clouds start to

:04:07.:04:11.

build up again. Overnight lows of 13 or 14 degrees. In the countryside it

:04:12.:04:18.

will be a bit cooler. Sundax, this cloud around first being,

:04:19.:04:23.

particularly in eastern parts. In the afternoon, some sunshind for a

:04:24.:04:30.

time as the sun develops, so do the showers. Some of these showdrs could

:04:31.:04:37.

be heavy and thundery. Next week, it remains mainly dry and sunnx, but

:04:38.:04:41.

you might have to dodge the occasional shower.

:04:42.:05:13.

Good evening. It looks like for most of us the weather will be fairly

:05:14.:05:20.

similar to what we saw today. The broad themes throughout this

:05:21.:05:23.

weekend, sunny spells and scattering of showers, but not much evening

:05:24.:05:25.

sunshine round, I
