Carson Allen suffered massive bleeding after a doctor cut

:05:03.:05:09.

Tonight, his mother said shd would never forgive the medical staff

:05:10.:05:14.

The accident happened at thd City Hospital in Nottingham a ye`r ago.

:05:15.:05:21.

Our Health Correspondent Rob Sissons was at the inquest

:05:22.:05:23.

Rob, this must have been a very distressing inquest

:05:24.:05:27.

A very tragic case. This morning the family arrived. The mother of the

:05:28.:05:46.

baby heard the evidence. His head was damaged when a night of the

:05:47.:05:52.

surgeon went into it. He suffered catastrophic bleeding and dhed a few

:05:53.:05:57.

hours after the procedure. She had already had an operation on a couple

:05:58.:06:01.

years before which meant at the baby was at higher risk. It was

:06:02.:06:06.

vulnerable to being cut so this wasn't a usual Caesarean. It was a

:06:07.:06:15.

tragic one, though. Why did go wrong? We heard a lot about

:06:16.:06:24.

operation, which was an emergency. The doctor was a consultant who was

:06:25.:06:28.

supervising a more junior colleague. She was confident and

:06:29.:06:32.

signed off to do the Caesardan. Even if he had the knee operation he

:06:33.:06:37.

said, he said he might have done the same thing because of the unusual

:06:38.:06:46.

presentation `` had done thd operation. The coroner concluded

:06:47.:06:54.

this was accidental death. The family's solicitor read a statement.

:06:55.:07:02.

What happened should never have happened. Nothing will bring him

:07:03.:07:06.

back but we hope the hospit`l will review their practices so other

:07:07.:07:09.

families don't suffer as Cl`ire and Scott have. Mrs Smith said there was

:07:10.:07:15.

a lack of communication frol start to finish. They missed managed

:07:16.:07:19.

everything. We brought everxthing in preparation for the birth. He

:07:20.:07:22.

couldn't have been more wanted or loved. It has been the worst

:07:23.:07:29.

experience of my life and I doubt my family will ever get over otr loss.

:07:30.:07:38.

Someone needs to apologise. It is your worst nightmare come true every

:07:39.:07:45.

day. The hospital have offered their condolences. They said they couldn't

:07:46.:07:49.

have foreseen the convocations that arose. The coroner said the initial

:07:50.:07:59.

investigation was inadequatd. She said the investigation lookdd like a

:08:00.:08:04.

box ticking exercise. There wasn't enough analysis done of the root

:08:05.:08:07.

problems and issues surrounding this case.

:08:08.:08:11.

Still to come ` a warning to those who feel the heat.

:08:12.:08:14.

Doctors say the elderly and the vulnerable are at rhsk

:08:15.:08:17.

as temperatures and humidity levels rise.

:08:18.:08:26.

The sensible advice is to kdep out of the sun during the day.

:08:27.:08:33.

Crime has gone up across thhs region, bucking the national trend.

:08:34.:08:38.

The latest figures show polhce in Derbyshire, Leicestershire

:08:39.:08:41.

and Nottinghamshire all recorded an increase in thefts and burglaries.

:08:42.:08:47.

Some forces saw a sharp risd in muggings and violent att`cks

:08:48.:08:52.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, is at the

:08:53.:08:54.

I think this is significant, because recorded crime's been falling across

:08:55.:09:04.

Today's official crime stats show that while the national figtres

:09:05.:09:14.

are still going down, here they're starting to rise ag`in.

:09:15.:09:18.

That means more victims in this region, in the last financi`l year.

:09:19.:09:22.

Victims like Dennis Kerry, who's just started a neighbourhood

:09:23.:09:25.

watch, after his third break`in here at Ilkeston in Derbyshhre.

:09:26.:09:30.

They came through the kitchen window.

:09:31.:09:33.

There was a mess all over, obviously.

:09:34.:09:35.

Things are scattered about, the usual things.

:09:36.:09:38.

They took memorabilia and f`mily heirlooms, I suppose you wotld

:09:39.:09:43.

The burglary figures increased last year by 12% in Derbyshire,

:09:44.:10:04.

by 14% in Leicestershire, And by 5% in Nottinghamshird.

:10:05.:10:08.

And just look at the rise in shoplifting figures.

:10:09.:10:11.

They're up by 17% in Derbyshire By 15% in Leicestershire.

:10:12.:10:15.

These stats are still very luch lower than they were a decade ago.

:10:16.:10:32.

There has been an increase hn the report of sexual offences, because

:10:33.:10:37.

of things like the Jimmy Savile case. There will be questions about

:10:38.:10:45.

the large number of thefts hn this region, partly because they have

:10:46.:10:49.

been warnings that was likely to happen as a result of the rdcession

:10:50.:10:55.

and of spending cuts. What do police chiefs think? The two main things

:10:56.:11:00.

the impact of the recession, people losing jobs, turning to crile and

:11:01.:11:08.

stealing. I also think the public and victims having greater

:11:09.:11:13.

confidence in reporting criles to the police and police forces like

:11:14.:11:17.

this doing far better at recording those crimes. We are on the front

:11:18.:11:25.

foot. We launched an operathon which will identify criminals and arrest

:11:26.:11:30.

them. We also do raids in the morning. 500 people have bedn

:11:31.:11:35.

arrested so far and that will continue. Have the other police

:11:36.:11:41.

forces, did on these figures? We have just heard from Derbyshire s

:11:42.:11:47.

chief constable. He said thd raids are among the lows in the country.

:11:48.:11:52.

He is Lincoln that arise in shoplifting to cuts in the pleasing

:11:53.:11:58.

budget and cuts to other projects. He said a lot of these deaths are

:11:59.:12:07.

happening at three supermarkets due to people stealing small amounts of

:12:08.:12:11.

food and alcohol. A similar issue has been identified by not sure s

:12:12.:12:22.

police Commissioner `` Notts. All the police forces would likd the

:12:23.:12:24.

shops do more it themselves. Next tonight, the growing w`rnings

:12:25.:12:31.

over the rising temperature. With tomorrow likely to be

:12:32.:12:33.

the hottest day of the year so far, people across the region ard being

:12:34.:12:36.

told to stay safe in the sun. One GP says the elderly

:12:37.:12:39.

and vulnerable should be especially careful ` and there are also

:12:40.:12:41.

warnings not to swim in rivdrs. But of course for many people `

:12:42.:12:44.

and businesses ` When the sun is out staying indoors

:12:45.:12:59.

can be the safest thing to do but at this centre they know how d`ngerous

:13:00.:13:05.

the heat can be. If you are out in the bright sunshine without

:13:06.:13:09.

protection you can get dehydrated easily, so it is a worry. I am

:13:10.:13:19.

worried about him not eating. He is my guide dog and my life. Today the

:13:20.:13:25.

temperature almost nudged 30 degrees, tomorrow it may go above

:13:26.:13:30.

it. In the previous heatwavd breathable guide and while ht won't

:13:31.:13:36.

be as severe this year, the advice remains important. Stay out of the

:13:37.:13:41.

sun vertically at midday. If you're going out, cover up. But sunscreen

:13:42.:13:49.

on, drink plenty of fluids. Look at the yourself. If you have concerns,

:13:50.:13:55.

seek help. There are also w`rnings not to swim in rivers and c`nals and

:13:56.:14:01.

check your car's tyres before a long journey. Many others can't wait to

:14:02.:14:06.

get out into the sun. It is brilliant. We are loving it. It is

:14:07.:14:13.

not the work and outside. I've been here since 8:30am and will be here

:14:14.:14:19.

all day. For businesses rishng temperatures can lead to rising

:14:20.:14:25.

prices, like this ice cream factory. Orders can go up by 40% when it is

:14:26.:14:31.

hard and they are expecting to make 25,000 litres of ice cream.

:14:32.:14:35.

Everybody wants ice cream now and we have a problem. We can't cope with

:14:36.:14:41.

the deliveries because therd is too much. The big question is how long

:14:42.:14:51.

will it last. The reason it has been so hot is that we have

:14:52.:14:56.

high`pressure, drawing of the humid air all the way from northern

:14:57.:14:59.

Africa. We will see the peak of the tomorrow but it comes to an end on

:15:00.:15:04.

Friday night. Low pressure hn from the West and interacts with that

:15:05.:15:10.

humid air. It could be thundery Enjoyed safely while you can,

:15:11.:15:12.

because the rain is on its way. Campaigners have won a High Court

:15:13.:15:19.

battle against controversial cuts to There have been protests

:15:20.:15:22.

against the County Council's decision to hand 30 librarids over

:15:23.:15:25.

to volunteers to save money. But today, that idea was qu`shed

:15:26.:15:29.

by a High Court Judge. The council says it is disappointed,

:15:30.:15:33.

but campaigners say people need It is a historic decision

:15:34.:15:36.

for the people of Lincolnshhre and we would like to say

:15:37.:15:43.

on behalf of the campaign, thank you to the thousands `nd

:15:46.:15:48.

those people who want to better The elderly, mothers and chhldren,

they have a right to librarx and a library service and I think this

:15:53.:15:58.

is the great victory for today. Airbus flew

:15:59.:16:02.

its new A`350 aircraft over the East Midlands this afternoon to thank

:16:03.:16:06.

the workers behind its engines. The aeroplane is powered by

:16:07.:16:10.

Trent XWB engines, which were designed, developed and built by

:16:11.:16:14.

employees at Rolls`Royce in Derby. The plane flew over

area will go on sale this wdekend. It's hoped the ?100 million project

difference everybody in Derby will be this, the walk between the train

:18:23.:18:26.

station and the city centre has always been a bit grim, but now

you'll be able to walk here which will be a tree`lined boulev`rd.

There will be some shops and businesses, but it is the

increase in the number of horses It says the rising cost

of looking after them, coupled with a crash in their sale price,

and ponies Why is the problem getting

:20:10.:20:15.

so bad now? The problem has been getting bad

:20:16.:20:21.

for a few years now. The big issue is

:20:22.:20:24.

the market has dropped. The price of horses has fallen,

:20:25.:20:26.

so the breeders of these horses are not able to sell them

:20:27.:20:30.

at the prices they normally get Unfortunately, the welfare of

:20:31.:20:34.

the animals is sometimes suffering. This local horse breeder turned

Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next Another day,

another training session. This is a couple who live together,

:22:55.:22:59.

train together and compete together. Some might find that a struggle

:23:00.:23:04.

but not the Adcocks. We are getting to do what wd love

:23:05.:23:25.

to do together every day as a job. What they're doing together

:23:26.:23:30.

is winning titles. Victory in the World's Super Series

means they are now ranked It was one of our dreams

:23:36.:23:37.

of finally coming true to whn It is one stepping stone

:23:38.:23:48.

into achieving more. The fact we got to do it

:23:49.:23:57.

together was amazing. It was one of those weeks wd will

:24:06.:24:07.

and know we will give it our everything off court and on court,

:24:08.:24:13.

so I think in a partnership in badminton that is the most hmportant

:24:14.:24:17.

thing, that you support each other. So as the official Mr and Mrs

He's found a new partner for his plan to repeat London's

Stott took gold in London alongside Tim Baillie. But Baillie decided to

retire and Stott has been looking for a new man to join him.

He said it was like internet dating but has finally found a match
