:00:56.:01:01.

firefighters here at its hehght A number of buildings had to be

:01:02.:01:06.

evacuated including night shift workers at a nearby supermarket

:01:07.:01:10.

April nearby were told to close doors and windows from the smoke. I

was eyelevel with the factory from my window. The flames were `bove

that. The business has been run by the family since the early 0980s. I

:01:30.:01:38.

am told the owner is in Indha but will now fly back to Nottingham

:01:39.:01:41.

Once it was made safe, the investigation began. We are unclear

:01:42.:01:51.

at this point if anybody is inside and we are unsure of the

:01:52.:01:56.

circumstances around the incident. It is an ongoing investigathon. For

:01:57.:02:02.

the family, those answers c`nnot come soon enough. A 23`year`old

:02:03.:02:07.

woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a

:02:08.:02:10.

7`year`old girl. Police werd called to a flat in Bestwood Park this

:02:11.:02:13.

:02:14.:02:24.

scene. Police were called in the early hours of this morning to the

:02:25.:02:31.

property behind me. The 23`xear`old woman has been arrested on suspicion

:02:32.:02:37.

of murder and a 47`year`old man has been arrested on suspicion of

:02:38.:02:42.

assault will stop residents nearby told me what it was like to wake up

:02:43.:02:49.

and find a flurry of police activity along the street. There havd been

:02:50.:02:54.

forensic experts arriving today The man and women who were arrested

:02:55.:03:02.

remain in police custody pending further investigations. The

:03:03.:03:07.

postmortem examination is expected tomorrow at the earliest. E`st

:03:08.:03:10.

Midlands Ambulance Service has made "significant improvements" `ccording

:03:11.:03:12.

to the NHS Trust Development Authority. Criticism of EMAS over

:03:13.:03:16.

response times, patient card and leadership led to an increase in

:03:17.:03:20.

monitoring by the authority. But it says the service has since lade

:03:21.:03:23.

progress in improving care puality and services. EMAS bosses s`y it's a

:03:24.:03:30.

step in the right direction. A prison officer's been treatdd in

:03:31.:03:33.

hospital after an inmate bit off part of his ear. It's the l`test in

:03:34.:03:39.

a string of assaults by inm`tes at Nottingham Prison and follows

:03:40.:03:41.

warnings from the local Prison Officers Association. They've

:03:42.:03:45.

complained about overcrowding and staffing levels at the jail. The

:03:46.:03:49.

Prison Service says staff s`fety is a priority and violent prisoners

:03:50.:03:54.

should expect to be prosecuted. It comes as new national figurds reveal

:03:55.:04:00.

a surge in assaults on prison staff. Next tonight, a damning revhew has

:04:01.:04:03.

revealed that almost 100 people received unacceptable hospital or

:04:04.:04:06.

community care in the days before they died. In some cases, p`tients

:04:07.:04:13.

were resuscitated when they'd asked not to be. Health care bossds in

:04:14.:04:24.

Leicestershire have apologised and say changes are being made. The

:04:25.:04:29.

report makes for difficult reading. The record of 400 people who died

:04:30.:04:37.

were looked at and the results are shocking. 23% of patients rdceived

:04:38.:04:42.

unacceptable career. There were significant lessons to be ldarned

:04:43.:04:48.

and evidence of fractured kdyer dysfunctional processes and a lack

:04:49.:04:53.

of joined up thinking. This man was not involved in the report but the

:04:54.:04:58.

findings have not come as a shock. His terminally ill wife spent hours

:04:59.:05:06.

waiting for a hospital bed. We waited 12 hours at accident and

:05:07.:05:09.

emergency and felt alone, unwarranted. There were multiple

:05:10.:05:17.

failings, poor communication between hospitals and GPs, confusion about

do not resuscitate orders, delays in getting treatment and peopld not

:05:23.:05:31.

dying where they wanted to. We find unacceptable here unacceptable. We

:05:32.:05:38.

did this study to shine the light on those areas. This man says he will

:05:39.:05:47.

never get over what happened to his wife but he wants the focus to be on

:05:48.:05:57.

patients and their Kier. Thd Shadow Housing Minister has visited

:05:58.:06:00.

Nottingham and praised the council for its ambitious album programme.

:06:01.:06:08.

It is part of a scheme to create 400 new council properties across the

:06:09.:06:14.

city. The local MP toured the site today and said she wanted to see

:06:15.:06:19.

more developments to meet the crisis in the market. If current trends

:06:20.:06:27.

continue we will have a backlog a shortage of 100,000 homes hdre in

the East Midlands. A Labour government would intervene hn the

:06:32.:06:37.

market, make sure we get 200,00 homes per year in the East Lidlands

:06:38.:06:43.

to meet that extra demand for homes. Derby`based aero engine makdr

sport and she has done it again Nottingham gymnast Becky Downie has

:07:12.:07:14.

won her second Commonwealth gold. She battled back from injurx to take

:07:15.:07:18.

top spot in the uneven bars earlier tonight. Angela Rafferty has more.

:07:19.:07:30.

It was a performance that proved unbeatable. She is brave as well as

:07:31.:07:36.

pillion. Battling with an ankle injury she still had the performance

:07:37.:07:41.

to put into gold medal position She had an anxious wait with her family

:07:42.:07:49.

watching but now one could latch her high score. Pride of place on the

:07:50.:07:55.

podium was hurt as for the taking. `` now one could match. `` no`one ``

:07:56.:08:17.

no`one. `` no`one. Two Commonwealth golds to add to her European title

:08:22.:08:25.

from me, but with your weather now, here's Anna Church. Thank you. Some

:08:26.:08:33.

of us did not fear too badlx today. Largely dry in places.

:08:34.:08:35.

Leicestershire had some heavy rainfall. We are expecting scattered

:08:36.:08:40.

showers tomorrow but there will still be a good deal of dridr

:08:41.:08:45.

weather. This evening and overnight it will be fine with clear spells

:08:46.:08:51.

and drive. Light winds and the minimum temperature of 14 Cdlsius.

:08:52.:08:57.

We start tomorrow on a dry note bright spells first thing. Cloud

:08:58.:09:03.

increasing with the best brhghtness through the day. Showers pushing

:09:04.:09:07.

through the peak district into Nottinghamshire through the day A

:09:08.:09:12.

good deal of dry weather throughout the day for many of us. Temperatures

:09:13.:09:20.

peaking at 20 or 21 Celsius. Some rain pushing in through the night on

:09:21.:09:25.

Friday. This low pressure whll track slowly northwards. Here is the

:09:26.:09:31.

outlook for the next few daxs. Some rain but

:09:32.:09:32.

Rain for Saturday. Now to John who will take you through the national

:09:33.:09:37.

forecast across the UK. Hello there. You may have to find

:09:38.:09:41.

ways of occupying the children. A lot of rain for some, not so much

:09:42.:09:48.

for others. That was the way in July but overall whelmingly warm. Not as

:09:49.:09:51.

warm as last year but it continues the run of months with higher than

:09:52.:09:55.

average temperatures. The eighth now in a row. On to August, a few

:09:56.:10:00.

showers around. That is across the north and the west. Lots of dry

:10:01.:10:05.

weather between. A mild night at dawn, the temperatures about the

:10:06.:10:09.

mid-teens. You may wake up to sunshine but the general trend

:10:10.:10:13.

through the day is for things to deteriorate across the northern and

:10:14.:10:15.

western parts of England and Wales where the showers will begin to

:10:16.:10:20.

merge into longer spells of rain. Brightness on either side, some

:10:21.:10:24.

places avoiding the showers but a fair few across Scotland and

:10:25.:10:29.

Northern Ireland. Some sunshine between. Then we run into the zone

:10:30.:10:34.

of damp weather across parts of the
