That's all from us. Good evening.

:00:14.:00:28.

First tonight, teachers and friends have been paying tribute

:00:29.:00:30.

to a Derbyshire student stabbed to death in Borneo late last nhght

:00:31.:00:33.

22`year`old Neil Dalton frol Ambergate was a medical student on

:00:34.:00:35.

He and a fellow student were attacked

:00:36.:00:38.

From Neil's home village, here's Tom Brown.

:00:39.:00:42.

Neil Dalton was a bright, athletic young man with a career in ledicine

:00:43.:00:45.

Today that all came to a tragically premature end.

:00:46.:00:50.

He was one of seven students from Newcastle University who tr`velled

:00:51.:00:53.

to Borneo together to spend a six`week placement at a hospital.

:00:54.:00:59.

This morning, he was stabbed and killed.

:01:00.:01:03.

Malaysian police have said that they were drinking in a tea shop

:01:04.:01:07.

when another man rebuked thdm for being too noisy.

:01:08.:01:10.

This led to an argument and four men pursued the sttdents

:01:11.:01:15.

in a car before one of them attacked them with ` knife.

:01:16.:01:18.

Today, this is how staff and students at Newcastle University

:01:19.:01:20.

They were both excellent sttdents, very committed to their studies

:01:21.:01:28.

They were just doing what thousands of medical students do everx year,

:01:29.:01:31.

they were practising clinic`l medicine in a different setting to

:01:32.:01:34.

learn more and to enhance their practice when they cale back.

:01:35.:01:42.

It might put some students off going to certain places,

:01:43.:01:53.

Here in Ambergate, this small village, his fridnds

:01:54.:01:59.

former schoolmates and formdr team`mates at a local crickdt team

:02:00.:02:02.

One of them simply told us that Neil was the perfect guy ` very talented

:02:03.:02:07.

Next tonight there are calls for the East Midlands' young offenders'

:02:08.:02:24.

jail at Glen Parva to be shtt down after it was declared "unsafe".

:02:25.:02:29.

A Government report says the Leicestershire prison is

:02:30.:02:32.

riddled with a culture of btllying, leading to high levels

:02:33.:02:35.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, has this report.

:02:36.:02:43.

The jail that has raised a catalogue of concerns `

:02:44.:02:46.

a sharp rise in assaults and even prisoners being taken hostage.

:02:47.:02:48.

This former inmate told me what happened when he was at Glen Parva.

:02:49.:02:59.

Here he had big cuts down each side of his face.

:03:00.:03:02.

I asked someone what happendd and they said someone razordd him.

:03:03.:03:05.

People are slitting throats with razors melted into a toothbrush

:03:06.:03:16.

I am led to believe it has gotten worse since I was in.

:03:17.:03:23.

There is quite a lot of bad stuff that goes on.

:03:24.:03:25.

Today's report says Glen Parva was unsafe and has high and increasing

:03:26.:03:31.

levels of violence and bullxing but there was no prison`widd

:03:32.:03:33.

strategy to address the isstes and efforts to challenge perpetrators

:03:34.:03:37.

There were low expectations of the men held there and so they were not

:03:38.:03:52.

being prepared well to leavd the prison and lead law`abiding lives.

:03:53.:03:54.

It is some of the detail th`t makes shocking reading.

:03:55.:03:57.

Prisoners charging other inmates rent.

:03:58.:04:02.

Some prisoners are so scared of being attacked,

:04:03.:04:05.

they are committing offences just to get into solitary confinement.

:04:06.:04:13.

People compare it to Lord of the Flies because that is where young

:04:14.:04:18.

people are basically in charge and are running amok and can be very

:04:19.:04:21.

The Government has been called on to close Glen Parva.

:04:22.:04:29.

We would like a review of the policy, because far too manx end up

:04:30.:04:34.

in prison on remand and thex do not get a prison sentence afterwards.

:04:35.:04:37.

The Prison Service accepts that Glen Parva has been strugglhng to

:04:38.:04:48.

tackle serious challenges, but says those problems are being de`lt with

:04:49.:04:50.

and it has ordered a nation`l review of young offenders centres.

:04:51.:05:01.

Shopkeepers who sell so`called legal highs are being warned

:05:02.:05:04.

Leicestershire Police have joined forces with the county's tr`ding

:05:05.:05:11.

standards officers to crack down on the sales.

:05:12.:05:14.

Tests have found many of the products contain illdgal

:05:15.:05:16.

Officers say the doses in e`ch packet can also vary widely.

:05:17.:05:25.

Somebody could take this ond day and have one reaction, take it `nother

:05:26.:05:28.

I did find it very difficult to walk.

:05:29.:05:43.

Nottingham`based Boots is to be taken over by an American

:05:44.:05:46.

pharmacy giant, but the new owners say jobs in the city are secure

:05:47.:05:51.

Walgreens already owns 45% of the company.

:05:52.:05:54.

It now wants to buy the remaining 55% stake.

:05:55.:05:59.

The deal, worth more than ?5 billion,

:06:00.:06:00.

Boots will retain its UK headquarters in Nottingham.

:06:01.:06:08.

Polices forces across the East Midlands are to benefit
