at the papers over on the BBC News Channel, but now on

:00:00.:00:12.

And now the news for the East Midlands.

:00:13.:00:14.

First tonight, the East Midlands has seen the biggest numerical drop

:00:15.:00:20.

in unemployment anywhere in the country.

:00:21.:00:23.

Over the last three months there were 133,000 people out of work

:00:24.:00:27.

This is the Webhelp call centre at Pride Park in Derby.

:00:28.:00:40.

600 jobs will be created here over the next eight months,

:00:41.:00:43.

handling calls for a big mobile phone provhder

:00:44.:00:47.

In a garden style meeting room, some of the 100 already recruited.

:00:48.:00:52.

It is hard to get a job when you are leaving collegd.

:00:53.:01:00.

You look everywhere, you hand in your CVs.

:01:01.:01:02.

I know before I got this job I handed out about 100 CVs

:01:03.:01:05.

I've been looking for a job for a while now.

:01:06.:01:09.

I have just left university, I have just graduated.

:01:10.:01:11.

In the other half of the buhlding, French owned Webhelp alreadx employs

:01:12.:01:16.

Operation started in Januarx 20 2, in what used to be

:01:17.:01:20.

In a separate development today the German owned cargo comp`ny DHL

:01:21.:01:27.

is to spend ?19 million exp`nding its depot at East Midlands `irport.

:01:28.:01:32.

It's because of increasing demand overseas for our goods.

:01:33.:01:36.

The company can't yet say though if it will mean more jobs.

:01:37.:01:40.

It comes as the East Midlands recorded the biggest drop

:01:41.:01:43.

Figures for the three months to May show there were 133,000 people

:01:44.:01:48.

Our unemployment rate is now just 5.6% of the working populathon.

:01:49.:01:59.

Back at Webhelp, there is a pool table for the staff to relax.

:02:00.:02:03.

The chief executive officer told me the company is playing

:02:04.:02:05.

a long game in Derby and the new roles will be especially

:02:06.:02:09.

We find here that many of otr young people who we employ have actually

:02:10.:02:16.

been on the unemployment register over quite some time, so th`t every

:02:17.:02:22.

single job we are able to ghve here, we probably have something like 20

:02:23.:02:25.

Business confidence is coming back, according to Webhelp.

:02:26.:02:30.

And they say they are hearing that loud and clear.

:02:31.:02:37.

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has told BBC Radio Nottingham that

:02:38.:02:41.

Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust in Nottinghamshire will probably be

:02:42.:02:45.

kept in special measures until further improvements are made.

:02:46.:02:50.

It runs Kings Mill Hospital in Sutton in Ashfield

:02:51.:02:53.

and was one of the worst 11 performing Trusts in England.

:02:54.:02:56.

It was ordered to improve last summer.

:02:57.:02:59.

In the Commons, Jeremy Hunt explained why another

:03:00.:03:00.

Trust ` which runs Grantham Hospital ` will definitely remain in special

:03:01.:03:05.

Whilst United Lincolnshire hospitals and the NHS trust has made progress,

:03:06.:03:11.

including the employment of a additional 140 nursing staff, work

:03:12.:03:15.

remains to be done and the Chief Inspector has recommended they

:03:16.:03:18.

should remain in special me`sures by a further six months.

:03:19.:03:21.

Turning around a hospital which had a significantly high death rates,

:03:22.:03:25.

Police have released figures from an operation targeting suspdcted

:03:26.:03:34.

paedophiles in the East Midlands who access indecent internet im`ges

:03:35.:03:38.

Operation Notarise has prodtced 660 arrests across Britain.

:03:39.:03:42.

In Derbyshire there've been nine arrests.

:03:43.:03:45.

And nine men have been detahned in Leicestershire.

:03:46.:03:47.

Nottinghamshire Police are investigating 30 cases.

:03:48.:03:51.

An airline has said sorry after six passengers were allowed to

:03:52.:03:54.

get on the wrong flight at East Midlands Airport.

:03:55.:03:57.

The holidaymakers were bookdd on a flight to Spain yesterday, but ended

:03:58.:04:02.

They were taken off before ht left but the delay meant the two families

:04:03.:04:08.

The airline's asked the handling agent at

:04:09.:04:13.

A Hong Kong millionaire is bankrolling a multi`million pound

:04:14.:04:19.

campus redevelopment at De Montfort University in Leicdster.

:04:20.:04:23.

It'll have a new centre deshgned to encourage closer economic and

:04:24.:04:27.

Today the dragon that traditionally marks Chinese New Year markdd a new

:04:28.:04:39.

Doctor Jonathan Choi was here from Hong Kong to bang the drum for

:04:40.:04:44.

His new centre will focus on student exchanges and

:04:45.:04:51.

an increase cultural understanding, showcasing anything from Chhnese

:04:52.:04:54.

It's part of a ?136 million campus redevelopment.

:04:55.:05:03.

It is backed by the Chinese government.

:05:04.:05:05.

In the future we hope more Chinese leaders will come over to vhsit our

:05:06.:05:09.

centre, and with the centre we can work well with the UK community

:05:10.:05:12.

Doctor Choi talked of this day as being a groundbreaking occasion

:05:13.:05:15.

in both senses of the word, both the physical foundations being

:05:16.:05:19.

laid in this enormous new cdntre, but also close ties between Britain

:05:20.:05:24.

Is this really just something that the university and the studdnts

:05:25.:05:29.

First of all, the campus transformation whll

:05:30.:05:33.

create a lot of jobs for Lehcester, and also this institute is open

:05:34.:05:37.

for everybody in the local community to come along and attend.

:05:38.:05:41.

Opening in just over a year, the site will give thousands

:05:42.:05:44.

of students the chance to go to China and crucially bring more

:05:45.:05:48.

Finally, before the weather, archaeologists have unearthdd

:05:49.:05:55.

evidence of a grand medieval church in Nottinghamshire.

:05:56.:05:59.

A dig at Rufford Abbey has revealed stonework

:06:00.:06:02.

from an 850`year`old building which was later destroyed by Henrx VIII.

:06:03.:06:06.

The medieval Cistercian mon`stery may have looked something lhke this.

:06:07.:06:13.

There are still buildings wd don't know where they are.

:06:14.:06:15.

The infirmary, or the guest quarters.

:06:16.:06:18.

So we don't know the location of any of those yet, and there is still so

:06:19.:06:21.

much work we could do on thd church itself now that we know it has this

:06:22.:06:25.

structure at the back that we didn't expect to find, and the walls aren't

:06:26.:06:29.

So, it's goodbye from me ` but with your weather now, here's Kexe.

:06:30.:06:39.
