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

:00:13.:00:14.

First tonight, new figures showing an annual increase in thefts

:00:15.:00:19.

There was a 12% rise in burglaries in Derbyshire.

:00:20.:00:24.

They rose by 14% in Leicestdrshire and were up by 5%

:00:25.:00:27.

Figures for shoplifting show a largdr rise.

:00:28.:00:31.

Up 17% in Derbyshire, 15% in Leicestershire.

:00:32.:00:35.

Recorded crime's been falling across this region for more than a decade

:00:36.:00:41.

but now ` against the national trend ` it seems to be on the up.

:00:42.:00:46.

That means more victims likd Dennis Kerry who's just started

:00:47.:00:49.

a "neighbourhood watch" ` after his third break`in,

:00:50.:00:52.

They came through the kitchen window.

:00:53.:00:58.

There was a mess all over, obviously.

:00:59.:01:01.

Things are scattered about, the usual things.

:01:02.:01:04.

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

:01:05.:01:07.

Distressing as any burglary is, overall, the crime figures `re

:01:08.:01:16.

It's claimed some of the rise may be linked to the recession

:01:17.:01:21.

Our Social affairs correspondent Jeremy Ball spoke to

:01:22.:01:25.

I think the two main things are probably

:01:26.:01:30.

People perhaps losing jobs, turning to crime

:01:31.:01:34.

I also think the public and victims having greater confidence

:01:35.:01:43.

in reporting crimes to the police and police forces like this do far

:01:44.:01:48.

We launched, last September, operation Tiger.

:01:49.:01:57.

That's about being on the front foot, identifyhng

:01:58.:01:59.

criminals, arresting them and doing raids in the mornhng.

:02:00.:02:03.

500 people have been arrestdd so far since last September

:02:04.:02:05.

It's cost ?100 million` and it's hoped the redevelopment

:02:06.:02:12.

of Derby's Castleward area will transform the city centre

:02:13.:02:15.

and show that city centre lhving isn't just for the young.

:02:16.:02:18.

The first new homes go on s`le at the weekend.

:02:19.:02:21.

So this is a roof terrace, as you can see.

:02:22.:02:29.

It's due to last a decade, before all 800 homes

:02:30.:02:46.

There are houses still being built in suburbs.

:02:47.:02:54.

But we have already had an incredible level

:02:55.:02:56.

What we are building is somdwhere that has a good mix of housds

:02:57.:03:01.

A range of two, three and four`bedroom homes go

:03:02.:03:08.

About three quarters of the homes are for sale, but we are also

:03:09.:03:18.

working with the housing association who are doing a quarter of them for

:03:19.:03:21.

The cost of living here should be relatively cheap.

:03:22.:03:25.

One doesn't have to travel very far to do anything.

:03:26.:03:27.

It is proposed to provide a new school on site here,

:03:28.:03:30.

We will, of course, be workhng with the local NHS to make sure there are

:03:31.:03:36.

We are creating a big base, a big neighbourhood, something whhch can

:03:37.:03:41.

stand on its own on the edgd of the city centre and people can recognise

:03:42.:03:45.

it as a place, people can s`y, I live here, I'm happy to livd here.

:03:46.:03:48.

But perhaps the biggest difference for everybody in Derby will be this.

:03:49.:03:53.

The walk between the train station and the city centre has alw`ys been

:03:54.:03:57.

a bit grim, but now you will be able to walk along here, which whll be

:03:58.:04:01.

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

:04:02.:04:07.

the reintroduction of homes here that is hoped will give it

:04:08.:04:11.

With tomorrow set to be the hottest day of the year so far,

:04:12.:04:25.

people across the region ard being told to stay safe in the sun.

:04:26.:04:28.

One GP says the elderly and very young are most at risk

:04:29.:04:31.

When the sun is out, staying indoors can be the safest thing to do.

:04:32.:04:37.

At this Age UK centre in Lehcester they know how dangerous

:04:38.:04:41.

If you are out in the bright sunshine, without adequate

:04:42.:04:46.

protection and enough fluid, you get dehydrated so easilx.

:04:47.:04:51.

I have problems with him not eating because of the wdather.

:04:52.:04:57.

I'm very worried, he is my guide dog.

:04:58.:05:00.

Today, the temperature almost nudged 30 degrees.

:05:01.:05:05.

In the 2003 heat wave 3000 people died and though this week's weather

:05:06.:05:12.

won't be quite as severe, the advice remains important.

:05:13.:05:16.

Stay out of the sun, partictlarly between midday and about 3pl.

:05:17.:05:20.

If you're going out, put suncream on, drink plenty of fluids,

:05:21.:05:28.

There are also warnings not to swim in rivers or canals and check

:05:29.:05:37.

your car's tyres and cooling system before a long journey.

:05:38.:05:41.

But, of course, many of us can't wait to get out in the sun.

:05:42.:05:46.

and I'm probably going to be here all day.

:05:47.:05:58.

So the big question, how long will it last?

:05:59.:06:00.

Nothing lasts for ever, but the reason it has been

:06:01.:06:02.

so hot is because you have high pressure situated in the sotth

:06:03.:06:05.

and east of the UK, allowed to draw up very hot, humid air all

:06:06.:06:09.

We will see the peak of the heat tomorrow.

:06:10.:06:12.

It comes to a very spicy end on Friday night.

:06:13.:06:15.

Low pressure pushing in from the west.

:06:16.:06:16.

As it interacts with that htmid air there is a potential

:06:17.:06:19.

So enjoy it safely while yot can, because the rain is on its way.

:06:20.:06:28.

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

:06:29.:06:37.

It is certainly heartening tp. Wait until tomorrow. Those temperatures

:06:38.:06:45.

will be soaring into the 30s, the hottest day of the year so far. It

:06:46.:06:50.

does look like that will trhgger some thunderstorms on Fridax night.

:06:51.:06:54.

Quite acquired at the moment. We will start to see the cloud

:06:55.:06:57.

increasing from the south l`ter on in the night and if you showers by

:06:58.:07:02.

the end of the night as well. They shouldn't be too troublesomd, but

:07:03.:07:04.

that feminism will be down to 1 that feminism will be down to 1

:07:05.:07:12.

degrees, a very muggy night. `` temperature will be down. Not

:07:13.:07:21.

wall`to`wall sunshine but fdeling hot and humid with temperattres

:07:22.:07:26.

getting up to around 30 to 31 degrees. That he'd will be

:07:27.:07:30.

triggering some of these thunderstorms. Some torrenthal

downpours on interludes and Sunday quieter

:07:32.:07:36.

weather coming our way. But active weather heading for the UK.

:07:37.:07:46.

It was a warm one today. We have a few thunder storms across the UK

:07:47.:07:50.

tonight. Tomorrow we do it all again but both the heat and the storms

:07:51.:07:54.

will have more intensity. Tomorrow we break through 30 Celsius. Today

:07:55.:07:59.

we got to 29 Celsius in the London area. The hottest day of the year.

:08:00.:08:05.

We got to the mid-30s in western Franced the heat has sparked this

:08:06.:08:09.

area of cloud. Providing a bit of a show across south-west England.

:08:10.:08:16.

Strong and Gothsy winds. Lots of lightening flashes. The Wales and

:08:17.:08:22.

the Midlands could see intense rain. You may be woken by a thunder storm

:08:23.:08:26.

but you may not be able to sleep because of the heat and the

:08:27.:08:32.

humidity. A warm night and a misty start tomorrow. The possibility of

:08:33.:08:39.

one or two showers in the south east o England and the East
