This is East Midlands Today with Anne Davies and me, Dominic Heale.

:00:09.:00:11.

Tributes to a medical student from Derbyshire who's been stabbed

:00:12.:00:13.

Malaysian police say that Ndil Dalton and another student were

:00:14.:00:26.

chased and killed after a row with local men.

:00:27.:00:30.

They were excellent students. They were doing what thousands of

:00:31.:00:36.

students do every year. Also, violence, self harm and

:00:37.:00:44.

suicide is inside Glen Parv`. If you see is someone who is

:00:45.:00:48.

slitting someone's throat whth a knife, you will be scared.

:00:49.:00:54.

And the question about whether Britain should be self`suffhcient in

:00:55.:00:57.

food. And Great British Bake Off returns

:00:58.:01:02.

tonight. This is one of the contestants. This is a clue about

:01:03.:01:06.

what you will see later. Shd will not let me see the West of ht. ``

:01:07.:01:11.

the rest First tonight, a community hn

:01:12.:01:17.

shock as a student from Derbyshire They were among a group

:01:18.:01:21.

of students who were on Neil Dalton was killed,

:01:22.:01:26.

along with Aidan Brunger. Both were on the island of Borneo

:01:27.:01:30.

as part Our reporter Tom Brown is in Neil's

:01:31.:01:32.

home village of Ambergate Tom,

:01:33.:01:36.

details are still quite sketchy The people here are really only just

:01:37.:01:54.

finding out this news. They are only just coming to `` beginning to come

:01:55.:02:03.

to terms with it. Here, we have spoken to some of his old school

:02:04.:02:08.

friends and the cricketers that he played with, and they are all in

:02:09.:02:17.

was the most perfect guy, vdry was the most perfect guy, vdry

:02:18.:02:19.

talented and eight straight a student. He was on a six wedk

:02:20.:02:31.

fourth year medical student at fourth year medical student at

:02:32.:02:32.

Newcastle University. Seven students travelled from the University

:02:33.:02:38.

together, Neil Dalton and Ahdan Brunger were killed at 4am this

:02:39.:02:44.

morning. The police have sahd that they were drinking at a tea shop

:02:45.:02:54.

when a man rebuked them for being too noisy. There was an argtment and

:02:55.:03:02.

four`man pursued the students in a car before they were attackdd with a

:03:03.:03:03.

knife. Today, staff and students have reacted to the news.

:03:04.:03:04.

It is part of their medical training placement. This is very shocking,

:03:05.:03:10.

not expected. I just heard about it this lorning,

:03:11.:03:15.

there was an e`mail to the staff. It is terrible.

:03:16.:03:21.

It is quite worrying. It might put medical students off going to

:03:22.:03:26.

certain places, which is sad. The university itself has s`id that

:03:27.:03:30.

this news has simply come as a huge shock.

:03:31.:03:33.

They were both excellent sttdents, very committed to their studies are

:03:34.:03:37.

becoming doctors. They were just doing what thousands of medhcal

:03:38.:03:40.

students do every year, there were practising clinical medicind in a

:03:41.:03:48.

different setting to learn lore and to enhance their practice when they

:03:49.:03:49.

came back. Four men have been arrested in

:03:50.:03:55.

Borneo, but here the real focus is on supporting

:03:56.:04:07.

and family. He was a young lan, athletic and bright and with a

:04:08.:04:09.

career in medicine and his whole life ahead of him. That has come to

:04:10.:04:10.

a tragically premature end. There are calls for the

:04:11.:04:12.

East Midlands' young offenddrs' jail at Glen Parva to be shut down

:04:13.:04:15.

after it was declared "unsafe". The Chief Inspector of Prisons has

:04:16.:04:17.

today issued a damning report The report found a culture

:04:18.:04:20.

of bullying which is said was linked to high

:04:21.:04:24.

levels of self`harm and suicides. Our social affairs correspondent

:04:25.:04:29.

Jeremy Ball reports. The jail has raised a catalogue of

:04:30.:04:43.

concerns, a sharp rise in arsenals and prisoners being

:04:44.:06:35.

they don't get a prison sentence afterwards. Some of them ard

:06:36.:06:41.

innocent. Far too many go in for short sentences. We have to do

:06:42.:06:45.

something. The prison sent `` prison sdrvices

:06:46.:06:49.

except that Glen Parva has been struggling, but says that those

:06:50.:06:54.

problems are being dealt with and they have ordered a national review

:06:55.:06:56.

of such centres. Nottingham`based Boots is to be

:06:57.:06:56.

taken over Walgreens already owns 45%

:06:57.:06:57.

of the company. It now wants to buy

:06:58.:07:01.

the remaining 55% stake. The deal,

:07:02.:07:03.

worth more than ?5 billion, Boots will remain at its UK

:07:04.:07:05.

headquarters in Nottingham. It's being claimed smells

:07:06.:07:12.

of rotting carcases from a factory near Newark could be affecthng

:07:13.:07:15.

the health of people living nearby. Jay Gee Pears,

:07:16.:07:17.

which makes soap and glue, says it's installing thermal oxidisers to try

:07:18.:07:21.

to control the odours. A GP who lives

:07:22.:07:27.

near the factory says she's treated patients who have breathing problems

:07:28.:07:31.

because of the smells. Still to come, a special fe`ture on

:07:32.:07:48.

the Absolutists, the conscidnces objectives to did not fight in World

:07:49.:07:54.

War I. I think it is very brave for anyone

:07:55.:07:57.

what the majority are doing, it what the majority are doing, it

:07:58.:07:58.

takes courage. Don't sell so called legal highs,

:07:59.:08:08.

they're dangerous. That's the message

:08:09.:08:10.

from Leicestershire Police to local Tests have found many contahn

:08:11.:08:12.

illegal and dangerous chemicals Now the police,

:08:13.:08:15.

together with trading stand`rds These small, brightly coloured

:08:16.:08:32.

packet cheers `` packages containing so`called legal highs are in sale in

:08:33.:08:36.

Leicester for as little as ?5 each and they are very dangerous.

:08:37.:08:41.

Even though they are legal, the different batches can have different

:08:42.:08:45.

strengths. Someone could take this one day and have one reaction and

:08:46.:08:49.

take it another day and havd a severe bad reaction to it.

:08:50.:08:54.

Luke Miller used to be addicted to heroin and crack cocaine. Hd has

:08:55.:08:58.

taken legal highs and says that his experience of them was something

:08:59.:09:02.

that he would forget. I slowly forget myself losing

:09:03.:09:06.

control of my body. I could not walk, my heart was racing. Ly head

:09:07.:09:11.

to did not feel right. I fotnd it really difficult to walk at that

:09:12.:09:15.

point. I had never had an experience as frightening when I was on Class A

:09:16.:09:20.

drugs. Shops across Leicester sellhng

:09:21.:09:21.

packets like these have now been packets like these have now been

:09:22.:09:24.

written to by the police, urging real travellers to think ag`in. ``

:09:25.:09:31.

retailers to think again. We want to read Lester of ldgal

:09:32.:09:34.

highs. Although they are called legal, they are dangerous drugs

:09:35.:09:41.

They make to be legal to possess, but they are not illegal to sell.

:09:42.:09:45.

I think that the packaging hs marketed towards children. Ht is

:09:46.:09:50.

what they did with alcopops. It is run like any other business, but it

:09:51.:09:57.

is legalised drug dealing. Ultimately, if shops continte to

:09:58.:10:01.

sell them, the legal highs could be seized and the retailers prosecuted.

:10:02.:10:15.

East Midlands Airport has sden their profits rise. This is partlx due to

:10:16.:10:26.

car parking charges rise. And passenger numbers increased. The

:10:27.:10:29.

output is now making more money than it did before the recession.

:10:30.:10:35.

It is holiday time at East Lidlands Airport. After the closure of BMI

:10:36.:10:41.

baby two years ago, other ahrlines have stepped in. Passenger numbers

:10:42.:10:45.

are on the rise. The prices are still quite cheap.

:10:46.:10:49.

It is more busy here than when we were here before.

:10:50.:10:56.

Why do think this is? Possibly more money around. People

:10:57.:11:00.

can be more secure in their work that they can spend more money now.

:11:01.:11:04.

Figures show that in the last financial year, 4.3 million

:11:05.:11:08.

passengers used East Midlands Airport. Up 9%. But, in the boom

:11:09.:11:15.

year of 2009, there were 5.4 million passengers. Profits last ye`r was

:11:16.:11:20.

?16.4 million. An increase of 2 .2%. The way that profits are recorded

:11:21.:11:26.

has changed, but it is now overtaking the boom year figure of

:11:27.:11:29.

?40 million. The airport is a major cargo hub. In

:11:30.:11:36.

the last year, carriers havd added new routes and increase the size of

:11:37.:11:41.

the aircraft. Revenue from cargo is now nearly ?10 million, up by 7 00

:11:42.:11:47.

`` ?700,000. The airport has also increased money to increase

:11:48.:11:53.

long`stay car parking, helphng to boost its profits.

:11:54.:11:57.

It is a general economic recovery. We are also putting on airlhne

:11:58.:12:00.

routes that people find poptlar We routes that people find poptlar We

:12:01.:12:03.

have seen a gradual improvelent in confidence and people returning to

:12:04.:12:05.

airline routes that people find airline routes that people find

:12:06.:12:08.

popular. We have seen a gradual improvement in confidence and people

:12:09.:12:14.

returning to travel. We're not where we were, but we are on the road back

:12:15.:12:16.

to recovery. The terminal building is behng

:12:17.:12:18.

redeveloped at the cost of ?12 million. Is a new all meaning that

:12:19.:12:21.

passengers can get through dven quicker. There will be more shops

:12:22.:12:23.

and the whole thing will be ready later this year.

:12:24.:12:24.

Steady growth is predicted. Farmers are warning that Brhtain is

:12:25.:12:40.

in danger of being overreli`nt in cheap food. They highlighted the

:12:41.:12:45.

problem during a cultural `` agricultural show today. Brhtain is

:12:46.:12:50.

coming less capable of feedhng itself.

:12:51.:12:57.

The Bakewell show has been `n annual fixture since Queen Victori` was on

:12:58.:13:02.

the throne. Now Britain strtggles to feed itself, and it is an issue that

:13:03.:13:07.

worries the government. Britain is partly self`sufficient, but it has

:13:08.:13:11.

fallen by 10%. The National Farmers' Union says that if Britain was to

:13:12.:13:14.

rely on its own food so far this year, we would be running ott within

:13:15.:13:18.

days. But have we got enough farmers to grow the food?

:13:19.:13:22.

I think that we have got thd farmers. We have good agrictltural

:13:23.:13:26.

colleges with high standards of education. They are full of young

:13:27.:13:30.

people who are keen to get hnvolved in the industry. We need to make

:13:31.:13:34.

sure that we get them into the industry.

:13:35.:13:36.

The government has responded by with a formally in pounds scheme to help

:13:37.:13:44.

`` a ?4 million scheme to bty food from local farmers, rather than

:13:45.:13:47.

relying on imports, even if it is cheaper.

:13:48.:13:51.

This farmer has been bringing his cows to the show for 30 years. Does

:13:52.:13:56.

he think that Britain can fded itself?

:13:57.:14:00.

I think it is possible, but people want to cut sprays out and

:14:01.:14:04.

fertiliser out. There is a lot of wasteland.

:14:05.:14:09.

Is it Mission impossible? It is not impossible. But would shoppdrs be

:14:10.:14:17.

prepared to pay extra withott imports?

:14:18.:14:21.

I would be prepared to have the good quality.

:14:22.:14:25.

I think that most people wotld like to be more aware of where they are

:14:26.:14:29.

buying the food from and trxing to reduce the food miles, but H think

:14:30.:14:33.

with today's economy, peopld have to override that.

:14:34.:14:37.

The days of people wanting cheaper and cheaper food and worrying where

:14:38.:14:41.

it comes from, I think that they are over now.

:14:42.:14:44.

We have about energy security because of global threats. Farmers

:14:45.:14:46.

and politician said that th`t should include our food as well.

:14:47.:14:53.

Much has been written and spoken about the heroism of the millions

:14:54.:14:56.

of men who went off to fight in the Great War, and about the terrible,

:14:57.:14:59.

But what about those who refused to fight?

:15:00.:15:04.

They too suffered, but for their beliefs.

:15:05.:15:05.

James Roberson's been to two areas of the East Midlands that,

:15:06.:15:08.

a hundred years ago, were wdll`known for their conscientious objdctors.

:15:09.:15:16.

Peaceful now, it is difficult to think of strife and friction in

:15:17.:15:24.

Derbyshire, focused 100 years ago on this building. This local hhstorian

:15:25.:15:28.

showed me the Quakers friends meeting house.

:15:29.:15:34.

We deny outward fighting is with outward weapons.

:15:35.:15:40.

Quakers were anti`war and rdfuse to fight, which angered local people

:15:41.:15:43.

who were losing young man at the front.

:15:44.:15:47.

There was more than one occ`sion when the Quaker businesses `nd

:15:48.:15:54.

people suffered. The local shop was vandalised, the Quakers attdnding

:15:55.:15:58.

the meetings were harassed. Today at a Catholic visitors centre,

:15:59.:16:06.

it used to be occupied by two Quaker families. One man worked for the

:16:07.:16:11.

Midlands Railway and was sacked for refusing to join the war. Through

:16:12.:16:15.

the war years, he was virtu`lly worked to death in British prisons.

:16:16.:16:22.

The prisoner parities did not want a man to die on them, so they try to

:16:23.:16:30.

persuade him to be a clerk, and he refused.

:16:31.:16:32.

They relented and freed aftdr. He and his wife lived into old age The

:16:33.:16:39.

other man was treated more dasily, he was told that he must banish

:16:40.:16:46.

himself and farmer 20 miles away. They had some sympathy with the

:16:47.:16:50.

conscientious objectors, evdn though the military did not, so he moved

:16:51.:16:55.

away. They were called Absolutists. They

:16:56.:16:58.

refuse to do anything to support the war effort.

:16:59.:17:02.

Historian Cynthia Brown showed me where the Chapel of the Church of

:17:03.:17:07.

Christ once stood. Its membdrs were anti`war, including Sidney Collins,

:17:08.:17:13.

who was at 24`year`old membdr of the Absolutists. He refused to fight.

:17:14.:17:17.

Outside, he was made to facd an angry mob.

:17:18.:17:22.

There were crowds of people waiting outside. Somewhat friends, someone

:17:23.:17:27.

not. The hostile people with there. I can hear the noise now, c`lling as

:17:28.:17:38.

cowards and traitors. Traitors and! His daughter said, away frol the

:17:39.:17:41.

crowds, the guards treated him badly.

:17:42.:17:47.

He was whipped and hurt. Sydney was later imprisoned at

:17:48.:17:52.

Dartmoor prison is, but wrote cheerfully to his family, ddspite

:17:53.:17:55.

the hardships. He survived both world wars and Jean was born in

:17:56.:18:00.

1945. He was 55 and I was not intdrested.

:18:01.:18:04.

I was embarrassed to think that he did not take part in the war.

:18:05.:18:10.

Today, conscientious objectors are viewed to different league from the

:18:11.:18:15.

great War. People understand that they were

:18:16.:18:19.

acting out of a strong sensd of religious duty.

:18:20.:18:23.

I think it took courage. Thdre is no doubt that people who refusdd

:18:24.:18:27.

absolutely to do anything, that there conscientious objection was

:18:28.:18:30.

genuine. For anyone to do anything that is

:18:31.:18:36.

different `` different from what the majority are doing takes cotrage,

:18:37.:18:39.

especially as his older brother went to war, so his parents had one son

:18:40.:18:44.

who went to war and one who refused. I think he was brave to do that He

:18:45.:18:49.

always kept his views, to the day that he died, and he was 19 when he

:18:50.:18:57.

died. `` 90 years old. Here is the sport.

:18:58.:19:10.

There could be a new player signed tonight. It is thought to bd around

:19:11.:19:16.

?5.5 million. One signing confirmed today, he joined from Sheffheld

:19:17.:19:23.

Wednesday on a three`year ddal. It is a change for myself, H have

:19:24.:19:29.

been at Sheffield Wednesday for three years now. Always in `nd

:19:30.:19:35.

around the play`offs, pushing to get the league. That is the way that

:19:36.:19:47.

every footballer wants to bd. Derby County has also been busy

:19:48.:19:52.

today. It follows these signing of striker Leon Best.

:19:53.:19:58.

As I meet Leon Best at the training ground, he is all smiles. E`rlier,

:19:59.:20:02.

he had been training with hhs new team`mates and there is no dieting

:20:03.:20:11.

`` doubting his delight at leaving after two seasons, having a knee

:20:12.:20:15.

injury and then out of favotr. Before that, she did play for

:20:16.:20:21.

Blackburn against Derby and scored. We can forget about that ond.

:20:22.:20:25.

Hopefully I will be scoring the goals for Derby this year.

:20:26.:20:29.

Is this your chance to provd what you can do?

:20:30.:20:32.

Definitely. I have been pushed out. I have been running my own, so it is

:20:33.:20:37.

amazing to be back playing with footballers again and being amongst

:20:38.:20:42.

a group. I felt that I have been held back and sometimes handcuffed,

:20:43.:20:50.

so the handcuffs are off now. I thank Derby County for giving media

:20:51.:20:54.

chance to be here and I will work my socks off.

:20:55.:20:57.

What was it about Steve McClaren that made you think that thhs was

:20:58.:21:00.

the manager that you want to work with?

:21:01.:21:04.

As soon as I met him, his energy was amazing. How he was speaking at his

:21:05.:21:08.

ambition for the club and hhmself as a manager.

:21:09.:21:13.

That did it for me. That ambition is of course to go one better than last

:21:14.:21:16.

year and make the Premier Ldague, something that best feels is a real

:21:17.:21:21.

opportunity. The sky is the limit.

:21:22.:21:24.

You believe that the sky is the limit, you have that written on your

:21:25.:21:28.

arm. Yes, it is all down for yourself,

:21:29.:21:32.

how far you are willing to push yourself. And how far you w`nt to do

:21:33.:21:38.

and what you want which even life. It is where they finish last season

:21:39.:21:42.

and continuing, and playing as well as they did. There is no re`son that

:21:43.:21:48.

they cannot get promoted. At Leicester, they remain unbeaten

:21:49.:21:56.

be building up to their campaign be building up to their campaign

:21:57.:21:58.

earlier next week. And in League One, Notts Cotnty have

:21:59.:22:00.

signed 20`year`old former Sheffield United midfielder Elliott Whitehouse

:22:01.:22:02.

on a one year deal. In cricket, Nottinghamshire batsman

:22:03.:22:06.

Alex Hales has hit a hundred for the England Lions today,

:22:07.:22:09.

in their match against Sri Lanka Leicestershire have been

:22:10.:22:12.

in action today. `` they are waiting to start the

:22:13.:22:19.

innings after a rain delay. And finally from me,

:22:20.:22:27.

more success for Kirkby`in`@shfield swimmer Ollie Hynd at the IPC

:22:28.:22:29.

European Swimming Championships He's retained his SM8 200 mdtres

:22:30.:22:31.

medley crown to take his thhrd major It has definitely been busy and

:22:32.:22:46.

emotional. Not had the chance to enjoy it yet, but I sure will do

:22:47.:22:52.

during the next few days. All those medals, I am not sure if

:22:53.:22:56.

he will have the space. He will have to move house.

:22:57.:22:59.

Yes, it's back. The unlikelx TV hit that's helped make baking bhgger

:23:00.:23:02.

than it's probably ever been before. Yes, the Great British Bake Off

:23:03.:23:05.

returns to our screens tonight, on BBC One no less, where it'll

:23:06.:23:08.

probably attract even more viewers. And we're pretty good in thd East

:23:09.:23:11.

Midlands at rising to this sort of occasion, so to speak. Last year's

:23:12.:23:14.

winner was the talented Francis Quinn from Market Harborough and

:23:15.:23:19.

this year we also have a contestant from Sneinton in Nottingham taking

:23:20.:23:22.

part. I've been to check out his piping and whisking today, `nd it's

:23:23.:23:25.
