And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:13.:00:15.

First tonight, East Midlands Today's been told that several men have now

:00:16.:00:18.

been arrested on suspicion of raping children at care homes.

:00:19.:00:20.

It follows dozens of historhc allegations of abuse centring around

:00:21.:00:22.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball's been following

:00:23.:00:25.

the information and told me about the scale of the investigathon.

:00:26.:00:38.

It is one of the largest police enquiries for several years for

:00:39.:00:57.

local police. Residents at least would say they have suffered abuse.

:00:58.:01:02.

James is one of them and he says he was gang raped and that when he

:01:03.:01:05.

tried to complain, he was not believed. I break down sometimes,

:01:06.:01:12.

when I feel a bit down and hf I have had a drink, I am even worsd. At

:01:13.:01:19.

night time, I wake up and even though I am on sleeping tablets I

:01:20.:01:25.

still wake up with nightmards. How difficult is this investigation

:01:26.:01:30.

proving? It has been really complex and that is because some of these

:01:31.:01:34.

allegations go back more th`n 4 years and that makes it difficult to

:01:35.:01:39.

call operate details of where abuse took place and who carried ht out. I

:01:40.:01:45.

am told that ten men have bden arrested, two of those men `re still

:01:46.:01:50.

being arrested on suspicion of rape and they have been released on bail.

:01:51.:01:56.

A third suspect has died since he was questioned by police. This

:01:57.:01:59.

investigation is still far from over.

:02:33.:02:37.

not... In the short time we were looking after the house, we did not

:02:38.:02:41.

protect the house and we have let her down. Naseem Moghal esc`ped from

:02:42.:02:47.

Uganda bringing with her at the jewellery which was in the family

:02:48.:02:53.

:02:54.:02:57.

and worked until early this year until she was admitted to hospital

:02:58.:03:03.

four months ago. Everything in this house, she has paid for through

:03:04.:03:09.

working in a factory. For a very long time. This is a callous crime

:03:10.:03:14.

committed by individuals who have shown no regard to the feelhngs of

:03:15.:03:19.

this family. They broke in here ransacked it and stole a large

:03:20.:03:24.

amount of the wedding and Asian jewellery and cash. That is why

:03:25.:03:29.

police will do everything they can to bring these people to justice.

:03:30.:03:36.

This sewing machine was tipped over, pits were broken off. They have not

:03:37.:03:41.

told their mother about the break`in, they say it would destroy

:03:42.:03:45.

her. The jewellery is worth thousands of pounds, but her son

:03:46.:03:49.

says the sentimental value hs priceless.

:04:02.:04:03.

into the care he received at the Queen's Medical Centre.

:04:04.:04:06.

The hospital says there is a multi`agency investigation

:04:07.:04:08.

A man who denies murder got his own family to flee

:04:09.:04:18.

from their home just hours before the house, two doors away,

:04:19.:04:21.

was set on fire in a botched revenge attack that killed four people.

:04:22.:04:24.

The fire at Spinney Hill in Leicester killed a mother

:04:27.:04:30.

Severn Trent Water says it's cut the number of water leaks in the

:04:34.:04:45.

And one Derby city councillor has called on the company to also tackle

:04:46.:04:51.

A major water leak here in Leicester.

:04:52.:04:59.

It was being treated this morning within hours of being reported.

:05:00.:05:07.

It is still losing a quarter of the company's supplies everyday.

one time so we rely on customers to notify us of any they sed.

Another water leak at a flash flood last weekend caused

There is a storm drain under the road here

which has obviously collapsdd and caused all this to come up with

:05:54.:05:56.

One of the local councillors is worried that they are not preventing

:05:57.:06:13.

problems caused by the intense weather. They do not have a good

:06:14.:06:18.

record on fixing leaks, but if they are focusing on that at the expense

:06:19.:06:23.

of major infrastructure, thdn there is a problem, because this causes

:06:24.:06:28.

major problems. Severn Trent Water says flash flooding is another

:06:29.:06:33.

challenge and it is investing in larger pipes in order to cope with

:06:34.:06:35.

the volume of rainwater. To sport, and it's been the first

good job. We tried to get ott there with the Australians and we knew

:07:16.:07:20.

they would be fast. We did ` good job. I think we did a good job. We

:07:21.:07:29.

knew from the start we would be thereabouts and it was about riding

:07:30.:07:34.

the waves a little bit and doing what we could. We did our bdst and

:07:35.:07:40.

we knew it would be really hard We clung on and did what we cotld. This
