First tonight, the rise in so called sexting among school childrdn.

:00:00.:00:15.

With a stark warning that sdnding intimate pictures among teenagers is

:00:16.:00:22.

a crime. They think it is OK to do that but it is distribution of an

:00:23.:00:27.

indecent image of that person is under the age of 18. And warning

:00:28.:00:33.

also for the police tonight. Forces told it risks endangering the public

:00:34.:00:37.

if it is not properly prepared for budget cuts.

:00:38.:00:41.

The parents fighting for justice for Jamie, killed on his ninth birthday

by a speeding biker with no licence or insurance. I just want this man

:00:47.:00:52.

charged with killing my son. We are waiting, two years down the line we

:00:53.:00:57.

are still waiting. Plus: Brhnging the legend to life. The new Richard

:00:58.:01:01.

III Centre in Leicester opens this weekend and we have a sneak preview.

:01:02.:01:10.

Good evening and welcome to tonight's programme.

:01:11.:01:12.

First, Police say they've seen an `larming

:01:13.:01:17.

rise in the number of cases of so`called sexting among teenagers.

:01:18.:01:19.

Officers in Nottinghamshire are so worried they've written to all

:01:20.:01:24.

secondary schools in the county to warn pupils they're

:01:25.:01:28.

breaking the law when they send or share intimate images.

:01:29.:01:30.

And a children's charity saxs it has even become normal behaviour

:01:31.:01:33.

A sexualised image, sent for fun or flirting, but police say it is

:01:34.:01:47.

increasingly being done by children, unaware that becatse of

:01:48.:01:54.

their age it is illegal. Notts's sexual exploitation unit saxs it has

:01:55.:02:00.

grave concerns about the growth of so`called sexting. We have ` lot of

:02:01.:02:06.

reports coming through of tdenagers sending indecent images of

:02:07.:02:10.

themselves to each other and boyfriend /girlfriend scenarios

:02:11.:02:15.

where they think it is OK to do that but in actual fact it is

:02:16.:02:18.

distribution of an indecent image of that person is under the agd of 18.

:02:19.:02:23.

If others get hold of that hmage, there is no knowing where it could

:02:24.:02:28.

end up. If it is uploaded to the Internet, you will never evdr get

:02:29.:02:32.

rid of that image. The imagd will be there for ever and it will be there

:02:33.:02:45.

for other people to view and download and distribute as well The

:02:46.:02:48.

force has now written to all county secondary schools about the problem,

:02:49.:02:50.

head of the long summer holhday Childline says a recent survey found

:02:51.:02:52.

60% of young people had been asked by someone to send a sexual image or

:02:53.:02:57.

video. 40% have created one and one in four has then sent it. The

:02:58.:03:02.

charity says it is so widespread it has become the norm. Unforttnately

:03:03.:03:06.

it is a common problem. The only thing is that we get to hear about

:03:07.:03:10.

it when it has escalated and people do not know what to do. It hs

:03:11.:03:14.

important we are here to support them in how to deal with wh`t is

:03:15.:03:20.

happening to them and how to remove the images from online if that is

:03:21.:03:24.

the case. As well as giving youngsters practical advice

:03:25.:03:29.

Childline has developed a free app that is including a number of funny

:03:30.:03:33.

but harmless pictures that youngsters can send to others who

:03:34.:03:38.

send them inappropriate images or, if they are asked to send shmilar

:03:39.:03:40.

pictures of themselves. And there's more information

:03:41.:03:45.

and advice for children and parents Next, a warning that public safety

:03:46.:03:47.

could be put at risk, unless a police force replaces more officers

:03:48.:03:59.

with cheaper civilian staff. Government inspectors say

:04:00.:04:02.

the Nottinghamshire Police force hasn't done enough to prepare

:04:03.:04:06.

for future spending cuts. The Derbyshire and Leicestershire

:04:07.:04:09.

forces have been told they're making But in Nottinghamshire

:04:10.:04:11.

the inspectors want urgent changes. In a moment we'll be speaking live

:04:12.:04:14.

to the force's Police and But first let's cross to

:04:15.:04:17.

Nottingham's St Anne's stathon, and our Social Affairs

:04:18.:04:21.

Correspondent, Jeremy Ball. So, Jeremy,

:04:22.:04:24.

why are inspectors so concerned Well, put simply the inspectors

:04:25.:04:36.

think that the Nottinghamshhre Police are at risk of running out of

:04:37.:04:40.

money next year and it comes down to whether they can afford to have so

:04:41.:04:46.

many uniformed officers. Yesterday we heard they were trying to protect

:04:47.:04:50.

front`line jobs by selling off buildings but today the inspector

:04:51.:04:54.

said the force would need to cut bobbies as well and this report

:04:55.:04:59.

pulls no punches. It says the force needs to provide local policing

:05:00.:05:00.

with... This is one of only three police

:05:01.:05:21.

forces who have been told that they would need to make improvemdnts

:05:22.:05:26.

What are other forces doing differently?

:05:27.:05:30.

There are differences. Most forces have been cutting the number of

:05:31.:05:35.

uniformed officers, often bx not recruiting behind the bobbids that

:05:36.:05:40.

retire. It is different herd in Nottinghamshire. They have kept the

:05:41.:05:44.

quite consistent over the l`st three years and that has happened because

:05:45.:05:48.

the Police Commissioner says that is what the public wants. A few years

:05:49.:05:52.

ago we heard that bosses here were raising private concerns th`t the

:05:53.:05:56.

force could not afford that extra recruitment. Now similar concerns

:05:57.:06:00.

have been raised publicly in the inspection reports.

:06:01.:06:04.

How have the gone down with the police?

:06:05.:06:08.

The force told me today it hs making progress. First of all a nulber of

:06:09.:06:13.

officers have already been replaced by cheaper civilians doing jobs like

:06:14.:06:18.

running custody suites and investigating crimes. A whole raft

:06:19.:06:23.

of jobs being done by civilhans The Deputy Chief con or has told BBC

:06:24.:06:27.

Radio Nottingham that she is irritated by the report bec`use

:06:28.:06:33.

inspectors knew that there were further changes in the pipeline and

:06:34.:06:36.

we have not seen the detail of those plans yet but we could put good

:06:37.:06:40.

money on the fact that it whll involve fewer bobbies here hn

:06:41.:06:41.

Nottinghamshire. Paddy Tipping,

:06:42.:06:50.

the Police and Crime Commissioner The Inspector's report says

:06:51.:06:52.

you'll have to deliver local So wasn't it irresponsible to make

:06:53.:06:56.

a promise to protect frontlhne police officers' jobs when ht's

:06:57.:06:59.

clear that isn't affordable? What the report says is that a

:07:00.:07:03.

neighbourhood policing has been protected, not preserved across the

:07:04.:07:09.

country. 16,000 police officers jobs have gone and in Nottinghamshire we

:07:10.:07:14.

have lost 300 over the spending review. Last year we recruited and

:07:15.:07:18.

this year we recruited and H anticipate that next year wd will

:07:19.:07:23.

recruit as well because we want a strong neighbourhood presence in

:07:24.:07:29.

Nottinghamshire. Experts have said that civilians can take on roles in

:07:30.:07:34.

a much more cost effective way than uniformed officers and it is

:07:35.:07:37.

something that other forces are doing you are faced with thd same

:07:38.:07:41.

problems as Nottinghamshire Police so why are you not doing th`t? We

:07:42.:07:44.

are doing that and the report says that. It is pretty clear, if you are

:07:45.:07:50.

investigating IT crime, Intdrnet crime, what you want is not

:07:51.:07:55.

warranted officer, you want somebody with specialist skills and we are

:07:56.:07:59.

recruiting those people, we are recruiting specialist inspectors,

:08:00.:08:07.

inspectors who are looking `t crime where we do not need a CID officer.

:08:08.:08:13.

In the custody suites we ard taking more civilians on so we are doing

:08:14.:08:17.

all of those things. I guess what the inspectors are saying, `nd I

:08:18.:08:23.

think it is right, we need to do it more quickly, but we have a balanced

:08:24.:08:27.

budget and we will have a b`lanced budget next year but in the longer

:08:28.:08:32.

term we need to make some changes. The police recognise that, the

:08:33.:08:36.

inspectorate report says yot need to get your finger out and in fairness

:08:37.:08:39.

to the force, they said to the inspectorate, you have got to do

:08:40.:08:44.

that by July and we have done that. You are saying you are recrtiting

:08:45.:08:47.

and recruiting and recruiting and next year you face a further cut of

:08:48.:08:53.

?8 million, how'd you make ht work with Mac is it Alchemy? You had a

:08:54.:08:59.

programme last night about the closure of police stations. We are

:09:00.:09:04.

making hard choices about the budget. I cannot tell you today that

:09:05.:09:07.

because the government do not announced a grant figures until

:09:08.:09:11.

December how many officers we will recruit next year but, as wdll as

:09:12.:09:16.

recruiting officers, we losd officers as well and I am pretty

:09:17.:09:22.

clear in my mind that what people in Nottinghamshire want is front`line

:09:23.:09:27.

neighbourhood policing. That is what the inspectorate recommend `s well

:09:28.:09:30.

and I can tell you that it hs what the force want as well. You have

:09:31.:09:35.

promised more officers, it hs what your big pledge has been. In reality

:09:36.:09:41.

you will have two cut that back We are recruiting. Over the two`year

:09:42.:09:46.

period we will have recruitdd an extra 100 officers. Can we `fford

:09:47.:09:50.

that? That is something comhng out of this report, you cannot `ctually

:09:51.:09:55.

afford it? What we are doing is the inspectorate say you have rdcruited

:09:56.:09:58.

an extra 100 officers. Can we afford that? That is something comhng out

:09:59.:10:00.

of this report, you cannot `ctually afford it? What we are doing is the

:10:01.:10:07.

inspectorate say you had to change the universally popular. We have

:10:08.:10:10.

done a lot regionally and the report focuses on the work we are doing in

:10:11.:10:15.

the East Midlands with other police forces so cutting back office cuts

:10:16.:10:20.

`` costs gives us the opportunity to maintain front`line policing. Thank

:10:21.:10:21.

the fatal stab wound which killed a Leicester sports coach was less

than four centimetres deep. Following Antoin Akpom's de`th

:11:53.:11:55.

a revenge arson attack was hntended But the wrong house was targeted

:11:56.:11:58.

and four people were killed. Abdul Hakim denies a charge

:11:59.:12:06.

of murder. The police were on the scend of the

:12:07.:12:20.

stabbing on Kent Street in Leicester moments after it happened. @n

officer was passing in an unmarked car. There was a starburst of men

:12:26.:12:31.

running in all directions. Giving evidence behind a screen thd

:12:32.:12:39.

eyewitness said he saw Antohn Akpom fighting in the street with Abdul

Hakim and another man. He s`id it was two against one. He saw red on

:12:44.:12:49.

the top of Antoin Akpom. Thd actual stabbing was carried out by a man

:12:50.:12:54.

who has already been convicted of murder. Abdul Hakim denies lurder

:12:55.:12:59.

but the prosecution say it was a joint enterprise. After being

:13:00.:13:02.

stabbed Antoin Akpom managed to get around the corner to a gym where he

:13:03.:13:06.

collapsed outside. The court heard evidence from the pathologist who

:13:07.:13:08.

said the cause of death was said the cause of death was

:13:09.:13:13.

extensive bleeding due to a stab wound to the chest between two ribs.

:13:14.:13:20.

Moderate to severe force was used. The wound itself was only four

:13:21.:13:22.

centimetres long with the knife itself up to eight centimetres long.

:13:23.:13:27.

After the stabbing on Septelber the 12th eight men went for revdnge at

:13:28.:13:31.

what they thought was the f`mily home of Abdul Hakim. They t`rgeted a

:13:32.:13:38.

house two doors away, killing four members of a family in a arson

:13:39.:13:41.

attack. The murder trial continues. Now to the parents fighting

:13:42.:13:47.

for justice after their son Jamie He was hit by a motorbike two years

:13:48.:13:50.

ago while on holiday on the Earlier this year a coroner ruled

:13:51.:13:55.

Jamie had been unlawfully khlled. Today a special garden was opened

:13:56.:13:59.

in his memory. At this school they have rahsed

:14:00.:14:13.

thousands of pounds to build a garden for Jamie and a pirate ship.

:14:14.:14:20.

It is all in memory of their friend. Jamie's birthday on the beach, it is

:14:21.:14:24.

the last photo of him. One hour after this was taken he was fatally

:14:25.:14:30.

injured. It was shock, I cotld get over, it was his birthday and we

:14:31.:14:33.

were having such a fantastic time and then this happened out of

:14:34.:14:37.

nowhere. The loss, the whold that Jamie has left is unbelievable. He

:14:38.:14:44.

is your son and you think hd is going to be there for ever with you

:14:45.:14:48.

and like that he is taken away from you. It is just a massive void. They

made. Because the police insisted on interviewing Lydia as a witness she

:15:05.:15:09.

was not with her son when hd died. It was disbelief. I don't think I

:15:10.:15:13.

will ever forget the words that they used to tell me he had passdd away.

:15:14.:15:17.

An inquest in Nottingham earlier this year heard claims that the

:15:18.:15:22.

driver was speeding, had no licence and was not insured. The coroner

:15:23.:15:25.

ruled that Jamie had been unlawfully killed. A police report has gone to

:15:26.:15:30.

the prosecutor in Greece but little has been done. I just want this man

:15:31.:15:37.

charged with killing my son. We are waiting, two years down the lane we

:15:38.:15:43.

are still waiting. This has helped, the memorial garden they have built

:17:23.:17:31.

years on there is frustration. The weight loss seems to have plateaued.

:17:32.:17:33.

Time for the exercise lab. H think you are going to go quicker than

:17:34.:17:38.

last time. There is a study called the Swedish obesity surgery who

found that around 12 months after surgery weight gain starts to react.

:17:43.:17:47.

Here they hope that 60 minutes exercise three times a week will

kick`start change. I was spdnding five minutes on a treadmill eight

:17:51.:17:55.

weeks ago but now I can jog for two minutes and I could never jog. You

:17:56.:18:01.

can start small but as long as you gradually build, that is wh`t we

:18:02.:18:05.

have been doing in the programme. It is not all about weight loss.

:18:06.:18:09.

Sometimes you stay the same weight but your body composition is

:18:36.:18:43.

Colin has left us for the glamour of Glasgow.

:18:44.:18:50.

Yes, I want to show you where we are. We are in the heart of Glasgow

:18:51.:18:56.

and so are these Games. That is the River Clyde and behind me you can

:18:57.:19:01.

see some venues for the Gamds. That one is purpose`built and th`t is key

:19:02.:19:04.

for us because it is where the gymnastics will happen so wd hope

:19:05.:19:09.

that Becky Downie and Sam Oldman will win gold in that buildhng. The

:19:10.:19:14.

swimming is three miles to the east of here and we are expecting medals

:19:15.:19:18.

there as well. Medals are what it is all about for so many of thd

:19:19.:19:23.

athletes. You would not want to bet against Lee Hind, the Paralxmpics

:19:24.:19:26.

are from Nottingham. He has won gold in every game apart from thd

:19:27.:19:31.

Commonwealth Games and now he is aiming to complete his colldction.

:19:32.:19:38.

At his family home the pridd in on a's success is clear and thd

:19:39.:19:43.

19`year`old is hoping to brhng more special memories back from Glasgow.

:19:44.:19:46.

I want to try and swimmer bdst time. It is a good opportunhty for

:19:47.:19:51.

me to try and complete the gold medal set of European, world, and

:19:52.:19:58.

Paralympic golds as well as the Commonwealth. I will give it my best

:19:59.:20:02.

and see what happens. Ollie has a form of muscular dystrophy, a muscle

:20:03.:20:08.

wasting condition. He was p`rt of the 2012 Paralympic team. Now the

:20:09.:20:13.

teams are all part of the s`me squad as able`bodied athletes and he is a

:20:14.:20:17.

major part of the English tdam, so much so he was asked to launch their

:20:18.:20:22.

kit. That was different, walking around in my speedos which hs a bit

:20:23.:20:27.

different to being in the pool but it was good front. It was a

:20:28.:20:30.

privilege for me to do it even though it was a bit strange. Ollie

:20:31.:20:36.

is certainly more at home wdaring his speedos in the pool. After all

:20:37.:20:41.
