Good evening and welcome to the programmd.

:00:00.:00:48.

First tonight, Rolls Royce has admitted exposing its workers to

:00:49.:00:51.

high levels of radiation at one of its plants in Derby.

:00:52.:00:57.

A court has heard a piece of equipment, which was supposed to

:00:58.:01:01.

be subject to strict controls, broke while it was being usdd to

:01:02.:01:06.

From Derby Crown Court, Simon Hare reports.

:01:07.:01:17.

The radiation scare happened three years ago. It happened here at

:01:18.:01:25.

Rolls`Royce Marine Power site in Derby. Please of radioactivd

:01:26.:01:29.

equipment used to measure the integrity of welding on comp

:01:30.:01:33.

opponents for nuclear powerdd submarines, simply fell off

:01:34.:01:38.

overnight tests. The radioactive source was only found later by a

:01:39.:01:43.

welder. He picked it up, not knowing what it was, passed it among his

:01:44.:01:47.

colleagues. One even wiped ht on his overalls to try and work out what it

:01:48.:01:52.

was. Several hours later solebody realised just how dangerous it could

:01:53.:01:58.

be. Rolls`Royce Marine Power, which has its main offices in Derby, today

:01:59.:02:04.

admitted seven breaches of environmental and health and safety

:02:05.:02:09.

rules. Representatives of the company were in court to he`r that

:02:10.:02:13.

the firm had used to it yourself techniques on the vital safdty

:02:14.:02:17.

equipment which ultimately failed. The court heard that the incident

:02:18.:02:21.

had been a distressing experience for everyone involved. Workdrs have

:02:22.:02:25.

been left feeling worried that they may develop cancer in later life or

:02:26.:02:30.

be unable to have children. Rolls`Royce has paid compensation to

:02:31.:02:34.

its employees that were involved, but it's still not yet known what

:02:35.:02:37.

longer`term effects the radhation could pose. The company is said to

:02:38.:02:44.

have taken steps to ensure something similar can not happen again. And it

:02:45.:02:45.

is due to be sentenced tomorrow Police in Derbyshire are to crack

:02:46.:02:49.

down on speeding bikers aftdr six The county's sweeping landscape

:02:50.:02:54.

means it's hugely attractivd to motorcyclists from many parts

:02:55.:03:01.

of the UK. Now officers will be switchdd away

:03:02.:03:04.

from road safety education and instead sent out and about

:03:05.:03:07.

on the roads with speed guns. Mike O'Sullivan can join us now

:03:08.:03:11.

from Matlock Bath. Mike, how is this crackdown being

:03:12.:03:15.

received in the centre good evening. Well, many bikers I

:03:16.:03:31.

have spoken to say that it hs a tiny minority that speed excessively

:03:32.:03:35.

along the roads of Derbyshire. The police usually have an enforcement

:03:36.:03:39.

and an education campaign hdre every summer. This summer, it is `ll about

:03:40.:03:44.

enforcing. Catching what ond officer described as the speed freaks. Out

:03:45.:03:49.

on the road with a Derbyshire police traffic officer. After a worrying

:03:50.:03:52.

rise in for talent is involving motorbikes, there is to be `

:03:53.:03:58.

crackdown enforcing the spedd limit. And targeting the bikers who seem to

:03:59.:04:03.

have a need for speed. Some people are sadly speed freaks. Thex like to

:04:04.:04:13.

ride their bikes at speed. That is the bottom line. This is whdre six

:04:14.:04:17.

people, for bikers, passengdr and a pedestrian have died and whhch

:04:18.:04:21.

are's roads in the first six months of 2014. Double the number hn the

:04:22.:04:28.

same period last year. Matlock Bath is a mecca for motorcyclists. It's

:04:29.:04:32.

where they can show off thehr machines as they ride through the

:04:33.:04:36.

county's picturesque but soletimes twisting roads. People tend to open

:04:37.:04:42.

it up more than they do in lore built`up areas. We slow down at the

:04:43.:04:53.

towns anyway. A lot of it is excess speed in the wrong place. It is not

:04:54.:04:57.

all down to speed, it is thd experience as well. Thorogood roads

:04:58.:05:02.

around here, nice sweeping turns. It is for biking. And for speeding The

:05:03.:05:10.

police will now spend less time speaking to bikers about ro`d

:05:11.:05:14.

safety, instead, they will be out enforcing the speed limit. xou could

:05:15.:05:20.

be a very good rider but yot have to be aware that everybody elsd on the

the crackdown is due to last until the crackdown is due to last until

mature rider who is speeding? It is usually be born again guys. They got

:05:43.:05:45.

the license back in the day and now they have a bit of money thdy can

afford to buy there was wanted. If you are a fair weather biker, a

Sunday biker, how much more at risk are you? Practice makes perfect

like anything. The more you ride your bike, the more you unddrstand

:06:04.:06:10.

how powerful bikes these daxs? You call them a Ferrari on two wheels.

:06:11.:06:16.

Look at this. This is a cruhser A lot of revs. You are looking at

:06:17.:06:24.

roughly one horsepower per kilogram. It's like balancing a Ferrari on two

wheels. How do we get someone of your courses? , London says at

Nottinghamshire's reported the country's biggest drop

:06:43.:06:46.

in the number of people killed or seriously injured on its ro`ds.

:06:47.:06:49.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists says the number

:06:50.:06:51.

of people who died or were badly hurt in the county fell frol 44

:06:52.:06:55.

The charity says it shows s`fety measures put in place

:06:56.:07:04.

by local authorities can make a big difference.

:07:05.:07:08.

From next month, patients will be able to usd stroke

:07:09.:07:10.

services at King's Mill Hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a wdek.

:07:11.:07:15.

Managers are planning to extend access to a special clot`busting

:07:16.:07:20.

At present, the service onlx operates at King's Mill for ten

:07:21.:07:25.

It means that patients needhng treatment outside these timds won't

:07:26.:07:30.

have to be transferred to Nottingham City Hospital.

:07:31.:07:35.

Plenty more to come on the programme tonight including

:07:36.:07:38.

Plus ? capturing the industrial sounds of a changing city.

:07:39.:07:43.

The pioneering project that?s recording the past.

:07:44.:07:46.

And looking to the future, the forecast suggests we cotld be

:07:47.:07:50.

recording some rainfall in the next day or so.

:07:51.:08:01.

East Midlands Today can revdal that children as young

:08:02.:08:13.

as eight are to be mentored to stop them being groomed by drugs gangs.

:08:14.:08:16.

Mentors will start working at three Nottingham primary schools

:08:17.:08:20.

As our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, reports, it's `ll

:08:21.:08:25.

Mick has been running youth projects here in Saint Anne's

:08:26.:08:35.

It's about getting teenagers off the streets

:08:36.:08:39.

But for some, that is already too late.

:08:40.:08:43.

So now he's setting up a te`m of mentors to work

:08:44.:08:45.

Gangs and drug dealers will use eight and nine`year`olds for doing

:08:46.:08:52.

little errands ` and that's their apprenticeship, they start of in

:08:53.:08:54.

that world, quite early on, doing those little jobs, and, then, if

:08:55.:08:57.

they show an aptitude for it and have something about thdm,

:08:58.:09:00.

And this is why, quite often, there is a misapprehension that

:09:01.:09:04.

gangs are full of young kids that just blindly follow.

:09:05.:09:06.

Actually, some of them are picked early because they are bright.

:09:07.:09:15.

It was last year's Royal visit to Saint Anne's that promoted

:09:16.:09:18.

Prince Harry's charity, the Royal Foundation, is setting up a

:09:19.:09:21.

The next scheme's going to target up to 30 local children, yotng

:09:22.:09:26.

children judged as a high rhsk of being groomed into criminal gangs.

:09:27.:09:33.

We run sessions in schools, so that's one`to`one mentorhng

:09:34.:09:35.

We do cricket, football, basketball and we've an allotment projdct.

:09:36.:09:41.

We find something they are good at and really push them

:09:42.:09:44.

in that direction so they h`ve something else that is theirs rather

:09:45.:09:47.

than just following everyond else down the negative path.

:09:48.:09:51.

There's been real progress in tackling drug`fuelled violence

:09:52.:09:55.

A decade ago, this area was notorious

:09:56.:09:57.

But recent cuts in youth services have prompted

:09:58.:10:01.

And that is why these new g`ng prevention projects are such

:10:02.:10:05.

Councillors in Leicester medt tonight to recommend that p`rking

:10:06.:10:14.

on pavements should be banndd in parts of the city.

:10:15.:10:18.

They say it's a major probldm and the ban could be extenddd

:10:19.:10:21.

But residents on one street have started

:10:22.:10:25.

They claim there's simply nowhere else to park their cars

:10:26.:10:31.

Almost all of us have seen ht and many of those possibly even do it

:10:32.:10:42.

ourselves. Here in Leicester, pavement parking can be found almost

:10:43.:10:47.

everywhere. Convenient for drivers, but often difficult for passers`by.

:10:48.:10:52.

Generally speaking, it is inconsiderate. It is not fahr on

:10:53.:10:57.

people who are pushchairs or wheelchairs. Per month, the City

:10:58.:11:01.

Council is being tracked by dissolution. Tonight, counchllors

:11:02.:11:03.

will recommend that parking on pavements should be banned. What we

:11:04.:11:09.

are going to do is identify three parts of the city. Leicester South,

:11:10.:11:13.

Leicester East and Leicester West. There, we can begin our expdriments

:11:14.:11:17.

for banning pavement parking. We will learn a lot from that `nd then

:11:18.:11:22.

we will be able to extend bdyond those areas. Calls encroachhng on

:11:23.:11:27.

the pavement is a widespread issue. This video shows cars in Derbyshire

:11:28.:11:31.

using it like a third lane. But Leicester's efforts to stop it not

:11:32.:11:36.

been welcomed everywhere. Rdsidency have began a petition. I can not see

:11:37.:11:40.

any other way we can park otr cars. If you look on the roads, they are

:11:41.:11:48.

very narrow. My neighbour, who is very sick, needs constant mddical

:11:49.:11:51.

attention and for gamblers hs to come through, it will be a big

:11:52.:11:57.

problem for them. It'll be impossible for anyone to get past

:11:58.:12:00.

year. The council says they will listen to concerns and if the plans

:12:01.:12:04.

are approved by the city maxor, bands would not come in and all

:12:05.:12:08.

makes year. But extra enforcement officers are planned in the

:12:09.:12:11.

meantime. So sites such as this maybe it is far less commonplace. ``

:12:12.:12:16.

become far less commonplace. The case of a Nottinghamshire

:12:17.:12:19.

clergyman whose promotion w`s blocked because he's

:12:20.:12:21.

in a same sex marriage, has been The former Conservative Party

:12:22.:12:24.

Chairman, Norman Fowler, spoke about the experience of Canon Jerdmy

:12:25.:12:29.

Pemberton, who lives in Southwell. The Church of England plans

:12:30.:12:32.

to look into the issues. Canon Jeremy Pemberton was

:12:33.:12:36.

the first ordained minister to be married after same`sex marrhages

:12:37.:12:40.

became legal. He and his partner Lawrence

:12:41.:12:44.

Cannington married this year. He is the deputy senior chaplain

:12:45.:12:48.

for United Lincolnshire Hospitals. He recently secured a promotion

:12:49.:12:51.

at Kingsmill Hospital in Nottinghamshire, but he was

:12:52.:12:54.

refused a licence to do the job by the acting bishop of Southwdll in

:12:55.:12:57.

Nottingham because of his m`rriage. I have been a priest for 32 years

:12:58.:13:01.

and I've tried to be a faithful and a hard`working priest where ever

:13:02.:13:07.

I have been, all different kinds And it did feel

:13:08.:13:10.

like that work was being rejected. Now, the issue has been raised

:13:11.:13:19.

in the House of Lords. Given that there were other

:13:20.:13:24.

clergymen at similar risk, will the minister, as a matter of goodwill,

:13:25.:13:27.

look at the position here and see if there is anything that can be done

:13:28.:13:30.

to help reconcile the difficulties? Lady Northover, the Women

:13:31.:13:36.

and Equalities spokesperson was sympathetic, but said it is a matter

:13:37.:13:41.

for the Church of England. So,

step forward the Bishop of Sheffield The recent guidelines of thd house

:13:45.:13:46.

of Bishops states clearly that those who enter a same`sex marriage

life of worshipping communities And also the Church of Engl`nd is

:13:55.:13:57.

about to begin a two`year process of structured conversations to

Last night, two Nottingham gymnasts, Becky Downey and Sam Oldham,

:20:16.:20:18.

turned at the Hydro Gold here in the team finals.

:20:19.:20:23.

For Becky, it was a big achievement because

:20:24.:20:25.

for the first time, she was part of a women's team to take a title at

:20:26.:20:29.

Like many twentysomethings, Becky Downie is keen on balls. But she

:20:30.:20:48.

likes is uneven. She is European champion and now has a Commonwealth

:20:49.:20:51.

team gold. She is a determined woman, who were just not give up

:20:52.:20:57.

after missing out on the Olxmpics. Missing 2012 was difficult. On the

:20:58.:21:06.

bars on Monday, she was on top form an aspiring young, England team At

:21:23.:21:25.

all her experience from the Melbourne games and the paghng

:21:26.:21:32.

Olympics to pull her through. Up and down, carrying a bit of an hnjury,

:21:33.:21:38.

so I was not going to high. But I was pleased with what I did. I had a

:21:39.:21:42.

small mistake at the start, but not much else. Some aldermen injured as
