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

:00:14.:00:16.

Two people are under arrest tonight on suspicion of murdering a

:00:17.:00:19.

Police have been given more time to question them.

:00:20.:00:23.

Today tributes were left at the address in Bestwood Park

:00:24.:00:25.

Trying to come to terms with the sudden death of a young girl.

:00:26.:00:30.

Throughout the day, flowers and children's toys were laid ottside

:00:31.:00:33.

It was yesterday morning when police were called herd over

:00:34.:00:39.

Today, as more people who lhve nearby learnt of her death,

:00:40.:00:44.

It is shocking, to be so close, I pass it

:00:45.:00:52.

on my way to school every d`y, and to not know that somethhng like

:00:53.:00:56.

It is shocking, really, to do that to a kid.

:00:57.:01:02.

My neighbour came and knockdd on the door and told me abott it,

:01:03.:01:05.

it sent me really cold, I s`id, it sent me really cold.

:01:06.:01:09.

It is quite a shock to the local community.

:01:10.:01:13.

Nobody likes to hear of the death of a child, any child, in f`irness.

:01:14.:01:16.

This particular child is no exception.

:01:17.:01:22.

The 23`year`old woman who w`s arrested yesterday on suspicion

:01:23.:01:28.

of murder has been named locally as Kay Anne Harris, and she is thought

:01:29.:01:31.

Neighbours who I've spoken to say that she's lived here for around

:01:32.:01:37.

three years, and they descrhbe her and the young girl as very puiet,

:01:38.:01:41.

they kept themselves to thelselves and they rarely saw them.

:01:42.:01:45.

A 47`year`old man who was arrested yesterday on suspicion

:01:46.:01:48.

of assault has now been arrdsted on suspicion of murder.

:01:49.:01:52.

Both he and the 23`year`old woman are being in custody.

:01:53.:02:02.

Police have yet to identify nowhere a body found inside a factory that

:02:03.:02:04.

The fire broke out at the Sherwood Works building in Basford

:02:05.:02:09.

The hosiery factory was destroyed in the blaze.

:02:10.:02:13.

Later, the police confirmed they'd discovered a body inside it.

:02:14.:02:17.

How the fire started is still under investigation.

:02:18.:02:20.

If you're planning to catch an early flight next week from

:02:21.:02:22.

East Midlands Airport, build in some extra time to get there

:02:23.:02:25.

There's going to be an 11 mile detour on the jotrney

:02:26.:02:27.

from some directions becausd of six weeks of overnight roadworks

:02:28.:02:30.

Traffic from the congested @453 tries to get onto

:02:31.:02:40.

the busy roundabout at junction 24 of the M1 near Kegworth.

:02:41.:02:43.

Now they're building a relidf road through the roundabout.

:02:44.:02:48.

That will cut out the need for lots of vehicles to circle `round

:02:49.:02:53.

The road is from the A50 is going to be coming through the centrd

:02:54.:03:06.

of the roundabout, and then going up towards the A453 for M1 south

:03:07.:03:09.

Much of the work will be done at night.

:03:10.:03:17.

From Monday, there will be six weeks of overnight

:03:18.:03:18.

Closures as well on the middle two weekends next month.

:03:19.:03:26.

Passengers going to East Midlands airport will be sent

:03:27.:03:29.

The signed diversion route will be taking motorists down to junction

:03:30.:03:36.

23 on the motorway, and then back round up to junction 23A.

:03:37.:03:39.

We estimate that's around an extra 11 miles.

:03:40.:03:43.

Customers should allow an extra 15 minutes to get the airport,

:03:44.:03:47.

The ?150 million upgrade of the A453 is being done the same time

:03:48.:03:56.

as the roundabout work, itself costing ?6 million.

:03:57.:03:59.

The whole reason for doing the work now is it will tie into the A45

:04:00.:04:03.

widening improvement scheme, and that means we don't have to come

:04:04.:04:05.

The roundabout road should be completed in January,

:04:06.:04:11.

and the long`awaited A453 dtelling by May next year.

:04:12.:04:20.

Derby's pantomime isn't going ahead this Christmas becausd

:04:21.:04:22.

It was going to take place at the Assembly Rooms

:04:23.:04:27.

but the building is out of `ction after it caught fire in March.

:04:28.:04:31.

The city council had hoped to switch the panto to the new velodrome,

:04:32.:04:33.

The council says people who've already bought tickets for Beauty

:04:34.:04:37.

and the Beast will get a full refund.

:04:38.:04:40.

Now, Monday will see an act of mass remembrance across

:04:41.:04:43.

the region, at least that's the hope of the Royal British Legion.

:04:44.:04:45.

The Lights Out event is meant to mark the outbreak of World War I

:04:46.:04:49.

Earlier I spoke to one of its organisers.

:04:50.:04:53.

If people could support us by purchasing a candle, all profits

:04:54.:04:57.

And light it between 10pm and 1 pm on Monday night, to show support

:04:58.:05:05.

You want all the lights out as well, why specifically that form

:05:06.:05:11.

Between ten and 11 was the powers 100 years ago when radio broadcasts

:05:12.:05:17.

were being made with a final declaration at 11pm to say that

:05:18.:05:22.

So we're just asking for th`t support, over that one hour, when

:05:23.:05:28.

England or Britain was approaching its darkest hour at that tile.

:05:29.:05:33.

And just to show support for that period.

:05:34.:05:36.

It is, it's very busy, therd are a lot of things happening throughout

:05:37.:05:46.

the counties, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire

:05:47.:05:48.

There are so many events, end if people want to get involved,

:05:49.:05:55.

That is the reason we try to do it, to make sure people remember

:05:56.:06:02.

Lots of ways to get involved, they can get involved through

:06:03.:06:07.

social media, is there somewhere we can go to find out more?

:06:08.:06:09.

If you go to the British Legion website,

:06:10.:06:12.

the information you'll need is there.

:06:13.:06:18.

And it's been another good day for our athletes

:06:19.:06:23.

With a roundup of all the m`in news from Glasgow, here's Kirsty Edwards.

:06:24.:06:31.

A moment Isobel Pooley will never forget.

:06:32.:06:35.

A personal best jump giving the Loughborough athlete silver medal.

:06:36.:06:39.

I can't believe it, it feels so surreal.

:06:40.:06:42.

I just had to ask the offichal, did I do that?

:06:43.:06:45.

My coach said today, focus `nd do what we've been doing, and ht's

:06:46.:06:49.

a credit to what a fantastic coach he is, I just did what he s`id.

:06:50.:06:53.

It was a leap of faith, I b`rely felt it, I just went for it.

:06:54.:06:57.

It's been a fantastic few d`ys for Nottingham gymnast Becky Downie but

:06:58.:07:10.

She went in carrying an ankle injury that's been

:07:11.:07:15.

troubling her this week but she got off to the worst possible start

:07:16.:07:18.

She fell off three times in all but she can certainly still hold

:07:19.:07:21.

her head high after winning two golds at these

:07:22.:07:25.

games, firstly in the team dvent and then in yesterday's parallel bars.

:07:26.:07:31.

That was the one medal that I wanted, and I am

:07:32.:07:33.

To say that that I'm the European bar champion and the Commonwealth

:07:34.:07:38.

bar champion is just amazing and I'm so pleased.

:07:39.:07:41.

Squash, and there's definitdly going to be another medal for

:07:42.:07:43.

She's already won a silver hn the individual event, but is now through

:07:44.:07:48.

It's the same story for Derbyshire table tennis player Liam Pitchford.

:07:49.:07:55.

He's made the final of the mixed doubles so now it's

:07:56.:07:58.

just a question of whether ht's gold or silver for him.

:07:59.:08:03.

Hockey, and England's women have gu`ranteed

:08:04.:08:07.

themselves a medal after winning their semifinal earlier tod`y.

:08:08.:08:09.

Hollie Webb is part of the Dngland squad that drew one all with

:08:10.:08:12.

New Zealand and went on to win `1 in the penalty shoot out.

:08:13.:08:16.

They'll now face Australia in tomorrow's final.

:08:17.:08:22.
