Thanks for joining us. That's all from the BBC News at

:00:00.:00:10.

This is East Midlands Today with me Anne Davies.

:00:11.:00:12.

Tonight ` tributes to a seven`year`old girl

:00:13.:00:14.

Be a new hands`on approach to police recruitment. With the guns. It is

:00:15.:00:35.

heavier than you would think it would be. An 11 mile deep jdwel ``

:00:36.:00:53.

give tour. He is a father, he is a son, he is far more than just a name

:00:54.:00:57.

on a war memorial. Police have been given more time to

:00:58.:01:07.

question two people in connection with the death

:01:08.:01:10.

of a 7`year`old girl in the They're now both being held

:01:11.:01:12.

on suspicion of murder. Today tributes were left outside the

:01:13.:01:19.

property where the girl was found. Geeta what's the latest with

:01:20.:01:21.

the investigation? Good evening. Police have bden

:01:22.:01:37.

carrying out a postmortem examination today at this property.

:01:38.:01:42.

As they investigate how this a younger girl died. Many herd have

:01:43.:01:48.

lain their tributes only ten minutes ago we saw a very young famhly

:01:49.:01:52.

arrive with that pink balloon, a mark of their respect. The

:01:53.:01:56.

overriding question: How cotld this happen?

:01:57.:01:57.

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

:01:58.:02:01.

Throughout the day, flowers and children's toys were

:02:02.:02:03.

It was yesterday morning when police were called herd over

:02:04.:02:06.

Today as more people who lived nearby learned of her death

:02:07.:02:10.

I passed there taking my kids to school every day

:02:11.:02:18.

and to not know that somethhng like that is going on.

:02:19.:02:20.

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

:02:21.:02:31.

It is quite a shock to the local community.

:02:32.:02:37.

Nobody likes to hear of the death of a child, any child in fahrness.

:02:38.:02:40.

This particular child is no exception.

:02:41.:02:42.

It's quite devastating to local people.

:02:43.:02:49.

Well, the 23`year`old woman who was arrested yesterday on suspicion

:02:50.:02:54.

of murder has been named locally and she's thought to be

:02:55.:02:56.

People I've spoken to said she was living for around three years

:02:57.:03:03.

and they describe her and the young girl as very puiet,

:03:04.:03:07.

they kept themselves to thelselves and they rarely saw them.

:03:08.:03:10.

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

:03:11.:03:15.

of assault has now been arrdsted on suspicion of murder.

:03:16.:03:18.

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

:03:19.:03:29.

Compared to yesterday, the visible police presence on this road has

:03:30.:03:37.

been scaled down considerably. But clearly the death of this

:03:38.:03:41.

seven`year`old girl has unsdttled the community here. An overwhelming

:03:42.:03:47.

our report last night on the quality of care

:03:48.:03:51.

at Leicester's hospitals prompted many of you to get in touch.

:03:52.:03:54.

Including one woman who says she saw her mother waste away on a ward

:03:55.:03:57.

The hospital says changes h`ve been made as a result of thd case.

:03:58.:04:07.

Pam contacted us after our report last night on the quality of care at

:04:08.:04:17.

Leicester 's hospitals. 22% of patients had received unaccdptable

:04:18.:04:22.

care. It was based on figurds compiled up to last summer but

:04:23.:04:23.

Pam's mum died in January after going in for a blockage in her

:04:24.:04:33.

bowel. She was a teacher or the life she was a

:04:34.:04:36.

intelligent woman and we have promised we hoped would nevdr let

:04:37.:04:41.

this happen to her. Even with the pain relief, two weeks of solid

:04:42.:04:49.

pain. She had a miserable end. Mum was a self caring, mobile l`dy when

:04:50.:05:00.

she went in with a bowel obstruction and she had surgery which worked. A

:05:01.:05:07.

cookie while but it did work but she `` it took a while. I watchdd her

:05:08.:05:14.

waist away. Pam made a form`l complaint. She has now had `

:05:15.:05:19.

response at omitting parts of her mother's care were not up to

:05:20.:05:26.

scratch. `` at omitting parts `` at omitting. A spokesman for the

:05:27.:05:34.

University Hospital of Leicdster trust said the nurse in charge of

:05:35.:05:41.

the ward was changed as a rdsult of the car. The job of improving care

:05:42.:05:49.

that never ends. `` the card. Her family say it is no comfort to them

:05:50.:05:52.

and she will be sorely missdd her granddaughter gets marrhed later

:05:53.:05:57.

this month. Police are still trying to hdentify

:05:58.:06:01.

a body found at the scene Firefighters were called to

:06:02.:06:04.

the Sherwood Works building The family`run hosiery factory

:06:05.:06:07.

was destroyed in the blaze. Investigations are also unddrway

:06:08.:06:11.

into how the fire started. A hospital chaplain from

:06:12.:06:20.

Nottinghamshire who became the first clergyman in Britain to havd a gay

:06:21.:06:23.

marriage, has been told a job offer Canon Jeremy Pemberton was refused a

:06:24.:06:25.

licence to work at Kings Mill Hospital, because marrying someone

:06:26.:06:34.

of the same sex goes against the Church's teachings. Sherwood Forest

:06:35.:06:38.

Hospitals have told the Canon today they have withdrawn the job offer,

:06:39.:06:42.

because he doesn't have a lhcence. Police are urging drivers not to use

:06:43.:06:46.

their mobile phones at the wheel after a driver killed a Leicester

:06:47.:06:48.

man soon after texting and calling. Marina Usaceva has been jailed

:06:49.:06:56.

for six years for causing the crash, which killed

:06:57.:07:00.

27`year`old Sukhdeep Singh Johal. She was driving on the A47

:07:01.:07:03.

near Wisbech in Cambridgeshhre Police inquiries found she'd sent

:07:04.:07:05.

and received texts and calls on two mobiles

:07:06.:07:11.

in the 20 minutes before thd crash. The lady had been

:07:12.:07:16.

on the mobile phone. Not just one mobile phone,

:07:17.:07:19.

she had been using two mobile phones all of the journey and her tsing

:07:20.:07:22.

mobile phones in that car h`s killed Please, please please,

:07:23.:07:24.

it is just stupidity to use a mobile phone when you're driving

:07:25.:07:28.

because it can lead to deaths Later in the programme,

:07:29.:07:30.

we'll be looking at the effdcts of this truly global conflict

:07:31.:07:41.

on one Nottinghamshire vill`ge. Passengers travelling to

:07:42.:07:54.

East Midlands Airport are bding warned they face an 11`mile detour

:07:55.:07:56.

on their journey because of six weeks of overnight roadworks

:07:57.:07:58.

on a busy motorway junction. It could affect people trying to

:07:59.:08:01.

get to early morning flights. And there'll be two full wedkends

:08:02.:08:04.

of closures next month. Traffic from the congested @453

:08:05.:08:13.

tries to get onto the busy Now they are building a relhef

:08:14.:08:22.

road through the roundabout. That will cut out the need for

:08:23.:08:30.

lots of vehicles to circle `round The road itself is going to be

:08:31.:08:38.

coming through the centre of the roundabout and then going up towards

:08:39.:08:48.

the A453, and the airport itself. Much of the work will be done

:08:49.:08:57.

at night. From Monday there will be shx weeks

:08:58.:09:05.

of overnight closures betwedn 8 00pm Closures as well in the middle

:09:06.:09:07.

two weekend of next month. Passengers going to

:09:08.:09:11.

East Midlands Airport will be sent The diversion will be taking

:09:12.:09:13.

motorists down to junction 23 on the motorway and then back round

:09:14.:09:19.

up to junction 23A. We estimate that is

:09:20.:09:24.

about an extra 11 miles, and customers should allow `n extra

:09:25.:09:27.

15 minutes to get to the airport. as the roundabout work,

:09:28.:09:29.

itself costing ?6 million. The whole reason for doing the work

:09:30.:09:43.

now that it will tie into the A 53 and the long`awaited A453 dtelling

:09:44.:09:57.

by May next year. Mike's back with us now in the

:09:58.:10:05.

studio and out of the high vis gear. Mike there's quite a lot

:10:06.:10:09.

of other roadworks going on around the nottingham area this

:10:10.:10:12.

summer as well isn't there? The powers`that`be say roadworks

:10:13.:10:13.

will create the minimum disruption In Nottingham there's

:10:14.:10:19.

the on`going tram work. New restrictions affecting the

:10:20.:10:23.

University Boulevard and Quden's Later this month, on the ring road,

:10:24.:10:25.

there'll be restrictions around the roadworks at the

:10:26.:10:31.

Hucknall Road roundabout. Then there's the closure

:10:32.:10:32.

of Glasshouse Street That's for work to improve

buildings around Sneinton m`rket. Officers he had been involvdd in

:10:47.:12:03.

high`profile armed sieges. On the night that I used this a male was

:12:04.:12:10.

threatening to commit suicide. It is hands`on honesty which appe`rs to be

:12:11.:12:16.

paying off. The difference hs huge. Last year we saw almost half of the

:12:17.:12:19.

kids coming through ten intdrested but by the end of that saw policing

:12:20.:12:23.

as a potential career. We h`ve gone from being something anonymous to

:12:24.:12:28.

being something they can relate to. So how have they related to this? I

:12:29.:12:36.

would just like to you Now, because of the letters he is

:12:37.:14:10.

a father, a son, he is a brother and he is f`r more

:14:11.:14:14.

than just a name on a war mdmorial. All the men who served in the

:14:15.:14:18.

Great War from this village have been commemorated

:14:19.:14:20.

:19:55.:19:57.

their last three quarter`finals but are flying at the moment,

:19:58.:20:07.

and Capt James Taylor hopes this I have heard a rumour that

:20:08.:20:08.

a carrot has been dangled I heard Luke Fletcher talking

:20:09.:20:13.

about a trip to Ibiza so that might be the little carrot

:20:14.:20:19.

dangled in front of us. You want to win it regardless,

:20:20.:20:21.

obviously. We've got a number of things to put

:20:22.:20:23.

right from the past few years in the quarter`finals so fingers

:20:24.:20:30.

crossed we can give a performance On to football

:21:52.:21:56.

off three times in all but hs staying positive. It was not the

:21:57.:22:03.

beam that I wanted. I think it was the worst beam I've done in a year.

:22:04.:22:07.

I am pleased with the results I got. No wonder she is happy with her

:22:08.:22:14.

results. Two gold medals, fhrstly in the team event and then in

:22:15.:22:17.

yesterday's parallel bars. That was the one medal that I wanted and I am

have guaranteed themselves ` medal after winning their semifin`l today.

:22:46.:22:51.

They went on to wind 31 with a penalty shoot out. We prepared and

:22:52.:23:05.

try to give it our all. England will now

which is tomorrow. Good luck to them.

:23:16.:23:19.

funding has been secured to extend a major reserve in Rushcliffe.

:23:20.:23:22.

The Notts Wildlife Trust has been granted more than ?500,000 to buy

:23:23.:23:23.

a former gravel pit at Holme Pierrepont.

:23:24.:23:25.

The site's already a haven for wildlife and the investlent

:23:26.:23:28.

will also help fund a three year programme of events and acthvities.

:23:29.:23:30.

A haven for nature and visitors alike. This 140 acre site of wet

:23:31.:23:47.

grassland is a nationally scarce habitat but now thanks to a grant

:23:48.:23:51.

from the National Heritage lottery fund it has a secure future. It has

:23:52.:23:58.

been the trust's most successful fundraising project to date. It is a

:23:59.:24:03.

public backing from day one. Locally we have raised over ?90,000

:24:04.:24:06.

donations in those two nations have actually helped us a lot. It is

:24:07.:24:10.

harder to get the rest of the grant from funding. It's exciting to have

:24:11.:24:24.

people trampling our cause `` behind our cause. One of the girls will
