And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale.

:00:14.:00:16.

The unions claimed a million workers walked out across the UK.

:00:17.:00:21.

The Government claimed most public sector staff reported for work

:00:22.:00:24.

But whatever the actual figtres schools, the fire brigade and other

:00:25.:00:29.

services across the East Midlands were disrupted today by one of the

:00:30.:00:33.

Here is a round`up from our Political Editor John Hdss.

:00:34.:00:44.

Library worker Rosie, from Nottinghamshire has lost

:00:45.:00:47.

She regrets that, but then she has already lost

:00:48.:00:51.

a big chunk of her salary because of council budget ctts.

:00:52.:00:54.

That is why she joined todax's national strike

:00:55.:00:57.

I went from 37 hours just down to 19 at the time.

:00:58.:01:07.

So, you know, my wages have been greatly reduced

:01:08.:01:10.

and I have a nine year`old at the moment and it is difficult

:01:11.:01:14.

sometimes to try to make thd money stretch until the end of thd month.

:01:15.:01:17.

Teachers, civil servants, and council care workers also backed

:01:18.:01:20.

There was a similar big turnout in Leicester.

:01:21.:01:27.

Fire Crews, angered over the raising of their retirelent age,

:01:28.:01:30.

We are making a stand along with other public services

:01:31.:01:35.

In Derby, while public servhce workers gathered for a rallx, fire

:01:36.:01:41.

reservists covering for strhking full time crews were called to a

:01:42.:01:44.

school. A fire had broken ott in the roof. No one was hurt.

:01:45.:01:50.

There was a similar incident in Leicestershire.

:01:51.:01:56.

This is what trade union solidarity looks like.

:01:57.:01:58.

It is a show of strength but will it change the mindset of the government

:01:59.:02:02.

on public service pay, condhtions and austerity budget cuts?

:02:03.:02:06.

I think they are wrong and it will affect services and it

:02:07.:02:09.

will affect people who have nothing to do with the dispute whatsoever.

:02:10.:02:12.

I also think they are wrong because some of them are based on b`llots

:02:13.:02:16.

With a very small percentagd of people actually voting

:02:17.:02:20.

I personally would not want to see more strikes because these workers

:02:21.:02:25.

are sacrificing a day's pay and that is because some of these people are

:02:26.:02:30.

With the government talking about another four years

:02:31.:02:37.

of public sector pay cuts, there may be further stoppages between now

:02:38.:02:40.

The national rehabilitation centre for injured soldiers is

:02:41.:02:49.

The Ministry of Defence says new facilithes

:02:50.:02:53.

at Stanford Hall near Loughborough will open within the next four years

:02:54.:02:56.

They will replace the outdated centre for seriously injured

:02:57.:03:00.

If we start to get a conflict that delivers casualties in the future,

:03:01.:03:09.

we have a state`of`the`art place to treat them so we will need to think

:03:10.:03:12.

seriously about how we retahn the skills that we have learned

:03:13.:03:15.

tragically, over the past fdw years with the levels of complex trauma

:03:16.:03:19.

that we have had and the levels of head injury trauma that we have had.

:03:20.:03:23.

Figures show 13 people have been fined for hogging the middld lanes

:03:24.:03:26.

The new powers to levy fines were granted to

:03:27.:03:30.

Officers can hand out on the spot penalties of up to ?10 .

:03:31.:03:38.

It has been a day of Royal celebrations across Derbyshhre

:03:39.:03:40.

Thousands of people lined the streets to welcome the Pueen

:03:41.:03:43.

The Royal couple arrived at Matlock this morning, before moving

:03:44.:03:47.

The sun shone for the thous`nds who thronged to Derbyshire waithng, for

:03:48.:03:54.

Accompanied by Prince Philip, she arrived not by Royal tr`in,

:03:55.:04:03.

It has been 22 years since the Queen has been to Matlock.

:04:04.:04:14.

The crowds made sure it would be a visit which would not be

:04:15.:04:17.

Many of them were lucky enough to share

:04:18.:04:23.

Our daughter was playing in the music ensemble so we would

:04:24.:04:30.

not have missed this day for all the earth.

:04:31.:04:33.

We only saw the turquoise bobbing hat from where we were,

:04:34.:04:36.

I'm just really excited to see the Queen

:04:37.:04:41.

After Matlock, it was into the royal car and they visited

:04:42.:04:45.

It was granted the royal se`l of approval two years ago.

:04:46.:04:53.

Local children sung to her before she met some of the

:04:54.:04:59.

Then it was onto sun`drenchdd Chatsworth House,

:05:00.:05:08.

where hundreds upon hundreds of well`wishers had arrived hours

:05:09.:05:12.

earlier to make sure they h`d secured a spot to see the Qteen

:05:13.:05:16.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh slowly worked

:05:17.:05:20.

their way through the crowds which lined the route to thd house.

:05:21.:05:25.

They were then introduced to local food and drink producers who

:05:26.:05:28.

presented the couple with a hamper of Derbyshire's finest

:05:29.:05:32.

She spent a long time looking at all of this didn't she?

:05:33.:05:35.

His Royal Highness was obviously very keen on some

:05:36.:05:38.

of the products and asked a lot of questions and spoke to us

:05:39.:05:41.

She asked if she would be able to fit it in her helicopter to take it

:05:42.:05:47.

home, so we all had quite a giggle with her, to be honest

:05:48.:05:50.

It was a memorable experience for many who came here.

:05:51.:05:53.

It was amazing and she looked beautiful.

:05:54.:05:56.

It has been amazing, I have never seen the Queen before

:05:57.:06:05.

She is quite smaller than I actually thought she would be.

:06:06.:06:09.

The crowds stayed to wave her goodbye, all in agreement there

:06:10.:06:18.

That is your news. So, it is goodbye from me, but with your weather now,

:06:19.:06:31.
