and a colleague were both stabbed to death

:01:17.:01:22.

after a late`night confront`tion. We'll have more

:01:23.:01:25.

on the latest developments But first Simon Hare reports

:01:26.:01:27.

on the growing tributes. A high`flying student and great

:01:28.:01:50.

sportsman. Neal Dalton is drawing up the fixtures for a national

:01:51.:01:55.

university football competition Since charged, he had also played

:01:56.:02:07.

cricket. In a statement, a spokesman said he

:02:08.:02:16.

he have a sense of humour sdcond to none. We all feeling this loss. At

:02:17.:02:25.

his former school, shock th`t one of its brightest students, destined for

:02:26.:02:30.

a degree `` a career in medhcine had been `` Red Hat is like crudely shot

:02:31.:02:38.

`` cut short. You want studdnts to take the opportunities but ht takes

:02:39.:02:41.

someone special to do that `nd Excel. He volunteered for a

:02:42.:02:46.

tremendous amount of things. Never any trouble. He embraced school

:02:47.:02:49.

life. His former form tutor issued

:02:50.:02:54.

a statement calling Neil "one of the nicest, most considerate and

:02:55.:02:57.

genuine people you could evdr meet. An exceptional, talented and able

:02:58.:03:00.

student, he was nonetheless modest Without doubt we have lost

:03:01.:03:02.

a fine individual." Simon is with us now. What hs the

:03:03.:03:21.

latest that we know? Four mdn have been arrested in the Kuching town.

:03:22.:03:25.

The police say that the men have confessed to their part in the

:03:26.:03:30.

stabbing and the investigathon is closed. It is now being passed the

:03:31.:03:34.

prosecutors. Different to the announcements you would get in a

:03:35.:03:38.

case like that here. But we know Derbyshire police have appohnted

:03:39.:03:42.

family liaison officers to work with Neal's family. There are

:03:43.:03:49.

practicalities in the times aired. `` in the difficult times ahead

:03:50.:03:55.

Hundreds of people still ardn't in their homes after a largd fire

:03:56.:03:58.

The blaze broke out at a factory on Melton Road,

:03:59.:04:02.

one of the main routes into the city, causing chaos for comluters.

:04:03.:04:04.

Tonight the road is still closed and investigations into the cause

:04:05.:04:07.

of the fire are continuing. No`one was hurt.

:04:08.:04:09.

Footage showing the fire brhgade arriving at the fire this morning.

:04:10.:04:23.

Flames were described as behng 0 feet high and large plumes of smoke

:04:24.:04:27.

could be seen across the city. The fire broke out just after sdven

:04:28.:04:32.

o'clock. Dozens of firefighters tackled the blaze. Homes were

:04:33.:04:37.

evacuated. People have told me how people and firefighters werd running

:04:38.:04:40.

up the streets telling people to get their children and get out. I was

:04:41.:04:46.

working my mum shouted come`down, quickly. There were massive flames

:04:47.:04:50.

and shooting out and we werd scared because our houses right next the

:04:51.:04:54.

building. Flames were coming down the street, trees were on fhre. When

:04:55.:05:00.

we got to this point, the h`ve started coming down, floor by floor.

:05:01.:05:07.

All you could hear was explosions. For the owners, it is a dev`stating

:05:08.:05:14.

day. My cousin got a phone call and he said the factory was burning

:05:15.:05:18.

down. We thought it was a joke. It is a complete disaster. It hs like

:05:19.:05:24.

my heart has been taken out of my body. That business is finished

:05:25.:05:30.

That is our livelihood. At one stage, there were fears that a

:05:31.:05:35.

nearby garage would catch fhre. This woman has a beauty salon. The glass

:05:36.:05:43.

was shattered, they were spray water on the property. It is just

:05:44.:05:48.

devastating. Elderly and vulnerable people were evacuated to a community

:05:49.:05:54.

centre. As well as fighting the fire, there has been signifhcant

:05:55.:05:57.

building collapse so there `re a number of issues which are

:05:58.:06:00.

preventing us getting into the building. But we do have it

:06:01.:06:04.

surrounded and we have a nulber of jets putting out the fire. Tonight,

:06:05.:06:10.

hundreds of people are waithng to get back into their homes.

:06:11.:06:17.

A review into the murder of a young mother, who'd bedn

:06:18.:06:20.

a victim of domestic violence, has made a series of recommendations.

:06:21.:06:22.

It's almost three years since Leighann Wightman was stabbed

:06:23.:06:24.

to death at her home in Netherfield near Nottingham,

:06:25.:06:27.

Now an independent review h`s concluded agencies could have done

:06:28.:06:32.

more to share concerns about Kemp's violence.

:06:33.:06:36.

And it says more questions should have been asked about why Ldanne

:06:37.:06:40.

reported abuse, but then said she didn't want help.

:06:41.:06:44.

Leicester Cathedral has announced the date for the re`interment

:06:45.:06:47.

It'll happen on Thursday 26th March next year and will be part

:06:48.:06:53.

The king's remains will first be taken to Bosworth ` the scene of his

:06:54.:06:59.

final battle ` before arrivhng at the Cathedral on Sunday, March 2nd.

:07:00.:07:03.

They'll lie in a closed coffin for three days before being placed

:07:04.:07:07.

Just one of the ways in which the growing scourge of loneliness among

:07:08.:07:16.

And in the weather, a busy few days ahead with weather warnings in

force. I will have your det`ils forecast later including latest

:07:32.:07:33.

thoughts on ex`hurricane Bertha Residents and staff at a care home

:07:34.:07:38.

say they're angry and upset at having to take down artwork that was

:07:39.:07:41.

designed to help dementia stfferers. Nottinghamshire fire servicd say

:07:42.:07:46.

they strongly advised the rdmoval of the artwork at Clipstone Hall Care

:07:47.:07:50.

home because of safety concdrns for But the home says it's

:07:51.:07:55.

an over`reaction. In this corridor, you can sde the

:07:56.:08:16.

items have been removed. The manager and staff of Amberaget

:08:17.:08:28.

show me `` of Clipstone Hall show me the areas where the artwork has been

:08:29.:08:33.

removed. The Fire Service s`id it was a hazard and the care home staff

:08:34.:08:38.

reluctantly complied. Relathves are angry. It looks like a prison. We

:08:39.:08:46.

are not in a prison. People have come here for the end of thdir

:08:47.:08:54.

lives. It is my wife's home and it should be made as pleasant `s

:08:55.:08:58.

possible. I can't see any dhfference between our halls `` our walls here

:08:59.:09:03.

and walls in hotels and schools Many residents have mentiondd and

:09:04.:09:09.

staff say that bright colours help to calm them and orient thel.

:09:10.:09:16.

Smelling them, the flowers, everything very tactile. Now that is

:09:17.:09:22.

gone, they are a bit down. @nother Notts care work has also bedn told

:09:23.:09:29.

to move artwork. At Clipstone Hall, one resident says that this is not a

:09:30.:09:37.

risk and provides it is usu`l amount of stimulation. His wife Lucy as

:09:38.:09:39.

well. `` it provides a huge amount. A short while ago, Vick McMhllin

:09:40.:09:49.

from the Nottinghamshire Fire We asked him

:09:50.:09:51.

to explain just what advice had been First of all, I would like to

:09:52.:10:07.

express my regret and the dhstress caused to family and members at this

:10:08.:10:13.

care home. I would say that the distress could have been avoided had

:10:14.:10:16.

the care home in question t`ken the advice offered by ourselves and

:10:17.:10:20.

adult social care in Nottinghamshire and also a leading dementia care

:10:21.:10:26.

organisation. What advice you talking about? We have workdd with

:10:27.:10:34.

adult social care in Nottingham and attended workshops on this hssue of

:10:35.:10:40.

providing care in care homes and how to provide it safely without

:10:41.:10:44.

breaching fire regulations. A leaflet has been produced which

:10:45.:10:49.

outlines what can safely be used to provide a positive stabilitx

:10:50.:10:55.

environments... Are you sayhng that they ignored the leaflet and what

:10:56.:10:59.

was on the wall should not have been there or what you saying thdy did

:11:00.:11:04.

not go about it in the right way? The reports I have seen that we have

:11:05.:11:11.

`` that we insisted on having everything removed, is not correct.

:11:12.:11:15.

There are numerous ways that a positive environment can be created

:11:16.:11:20.

in hallways without comprishng our regulations. So there is no reason

:11:21.:11:26.

why her premises should havd been turned into a Vittoria and

:11:27.:11:31.

institution with their walls? That is exactly what I am saying. I'm

:11:32.:11:36.

finding it hard to understand how the advice that was given bx

:11:37.:11:41.

ourselves and other organis`tions has been misinterpreted to the

:11:42.:11:44.

extent that care homes feel that they need to remove everythhng.

:11:45.:11:48.

Let's hope the mix`up gets sorted out.

:11:49.:11:52.

New research out today suggdsts 1 in 10 pensioners in the

:11:53.:11:55.

And more than a third of people in this region have little or no

:11:56.:12:00.

The research comes from the charity, Friends of the Elderly.

:12:01.:12:04.

They say the situation is dhre and it's going to get dramatically

:12:05.:12:07.

Getting old can feel like a frightening prospect, espechally

:12:08.:12:24.

when you on your own. This hs all too true for Brian. He was happily

:12:25.:12:28.

married and his wife was his best friend. When she died, he w`s with

:12:29.:12:38.

nothing. I didn't know what to do. You just sit and watch four walls it

:12:39.:12:46.

was really depressing. Brian's story is not isolated. Age UK close that

:12:47.:12:52.

thousands of pensioners in this region feel lonely. The charity has

:12:53.:12:57.

set project called men in shared is to encourage older men to gdt

:12:58.:13:04.

together and do a bit of DIX. We get that come down here and these are

:13:05.:13:08.

the only people see all week. All they will do all day sweep the floor

:13:09.:13:13.

and make a cup of tea but at the end of the day they go home with a big

:13:14.:13:18.

smile. New research publishdd today by Friends of the Elderly h`s found

:13:19.:13:23.

that 5 million older people in the UK are lonely. That figure hs set to

:13:24.:13:28.

rise to 7 million x 2030. In the East Midlands, one in ten pdnsioners

:13:29.:13:38.

say they feel isolated. And they are not online. The fact that wd are not

:13:39.:13:45.

`` that many people online leans that those who fly would be

:13:46.:13:49.

completely disconnected. Thdy will become a more vulnerable group.

:13:50.:13:56.

Brian now goes to men in shdds. He is making a float for a carnival. He

:13:57.:14:01.

says it is tasks like this which are then conquer the pain of loneliness.

:14:02.:14:06.

You come out and meet peopld and have a laugh and joke. All xou do at

:14:07.:14:11.

home is what people go by. This project is just a small step but it

:14:12.:14:16.

gives men who would otherwise be on their own something positivd in

:14:17.:14:17.

their lives. Thousands of staff at Nottingham

:14:18.:14:22.

based Boots are being reasstred that its remaining 55% stake in Boots `

:14:23.:14:29.

in a multi`billion pound de`l. Before that,

:14:30.:14:33.

it revealed plans for major "cost But Boots says workers here

:14:34.:14:36.

shouldn't be affected. A husband and wife who murddred

:14:37.:14:43.

an elderly couple before burying them in a back garden in Mansfield

:14:44.:14:46.

may have to pay back more than Police say Susan and Christopher

:14:47.:14:50.

Edwards stole over ?286,000 after killing Susan's parents

:14:51.:14:57.

Patricia and William Wycherley. They'd taken cash,

:14:58.:15:01.

sold the Wycherley's home Nottingham Crown Court this week

:15:02.:15:05.

seized ?11,000 from the pair. Police say they'll look to secure

:15:06.:15:11.

more of the cash in coming xears. In the week that's marked

:15:12.:15:30.

the centenary of Britain's entry into World War

:15:31.:15:32.

One, much has been reported about the impact the conflict had

:15:33.:15:35.

on individuals and communithes. But the Great War also had `

:15:36.:15:37.

profound impact on local industry. In Nottingham it saw the beginning

:15:38.:15:40.

of a decline in lace`making from Nottingham is the home of

:15:41.:15:55.

lacemaking. The Queen meets people at their work. In the 1950s, this

:15:56.:16:01.

work has already declined dramatically since the great War.

:16:02.:16:08.

Before then, it has thrived. Nottingham was the global cdntre for

:16:09.:16:15.

lace. Before the war, is employed nearly 40,000 people and hundreds of

:16:16.:16:20.

companies and. Now, there is just this one left. `` 40,000 people at

:16:21.:16:30.

hundreds of companies. So what started the decline? During the war,

:16:31.:16:39.

many men left to go and fight and that `` and they did not return

:16:40.:16:45.

Plus changes to fashion saw a requirement for lace declind. Before

:16:46.:16:56.

the war, many garments had ` lot of lace on them and women more

:16:57.:17:00.

decorative, with a wet out socialising more. During thd war,

:17:01.:17:05.

they had to get out and do wall `` and do work, replacing the len. This

:17:06.:17:10.

is a smart suit from the period of the First World War. Very practical,

:17:11.:17:16.

not at all Lacey. Practical clothing ended the demand for lace. But when

:17:17.:17:21.

the industry was thriving, dxports were worth millions of pounds.

:17:22.:17:27.

Factories like this one and others across the Irrawaddy rally produced

:17:28.:17:32.

the unfinished lace. It was `` across this area. It was taken to be

:17:33.:17:40.

finished, died and made ready to sell. Unfinished lace was also sold

:17:41.:17:51.

to be finished in other are`s. The lace machines work smashed tp and

:17:52.:18:00.

the machinery was used to prop up the trenches. So that is part of the

:18:01.:18:06.

reason for the decline? Yes. We didn't get the stuff to export and

:18:07.:18:10.

also there was no lace at the end of the war. So the industry become

:18:11.:18:17.

another casualty of the gre`t War. Now, only this factory is ldft to

:18:18.:18:22.

keep the tradition alive. Nottingham can be proud of its lace makers

:18:23.:18:29.

people skill. You can't beat a bit of lace. Or a bit of sport.

:18:30.:18:37.

First, three new deals at Derby Cotnty

:18:38.:18:39.

Not for players, but for head coach Steve McClaren,

:18:40.:18:41.

first team coach Paul Simpson and goalkeeping coach Eric Steele.

:18:42.:18:44.

They've all committed their future to the Rams until 2007.

:18:45.:18:46.

McClaren says agreeing to it was a no`brainer.

:18:47.:18:48.

So, a new season brings new contracts for Steve McClaren and his

:18:49.:19:04.

coaching team. No wonder thdn that the head coach had a big smhle on

:19:05.:19:07.

his face on the training ground today. I think it's important to

:19:08.:19:13.

show commitment. We have asked the players to do that. We have asked

:19:14.:19:17.

the players to sign longer contracts for the future. And once thdy were

:19:18.:19:22.

all done, we sat down and thought we had better commit ourselves. If we

:19:23.:19:26.

are successful, that would be the key that we are all committdd, all

:19:27.:19:33.

heading in the same direction. From a squad point of view, it is a

:19:34.:19:38.

fantastic bit of news. Of the left, we have all enjoyed working with him

:19:39.:19:43.

and the coaching staff. I fdel that in the last year, my game w`s

:19:44.:19:48.

consistent. Now a lot of it is down to the manager. It is over 02 months

:19:49.:19:56.

since this team went into the Derby dressing room. They led thel to a

:19:57.:20:01.

club record points total so it is no surprise that the American owners

:20:02.:20:05.

wanted to persuade them. It did not take much to persuade them to sign

:20:06.:20:11.

the new Deal. I flew over to Chicago and met them. They are ambitious as

:20:12.:20:19.

well. I thought we can develop this. We can develop this project and club

:20:20.:20:26.

and get it to where it belongs. There is no doubt on the impact

:20:27.:20:32.

McLaren has had on this teal and prove that the powers that be are

:20:33.:20:34.

very happy with the job he hs doing. On Monday, anger from managdr

:20:35.:20:38.

Stuart Pearce after players were On Tuesday

:20:39.:20:43.

the owner denied deals had been done behind Pearce's back, then xesterday

:20:44.:20:48.

the club smashed their record Stuart Pearce admitted todax that it

:20:49.:21:07.

had been an interesting week at the City ground. But he said th`t the

:21:08.:21:12.

head`to`head between himself and the club's financial people was in the

:21:13.:21:15.

past and that the owner had moved heaven and earth to bring in club

:21:16.:21:24.

record signing. This was a reasonably public fallout on

:21:25.:21:26.

occasion but it is neither here nor there. We have said our peace and

:21:27.:21:31.

got on with it. There is a game on Saturday and I want to deliver a

:21:32.:21:35.

winning performance. Stuart Pearce had been annoyed by sale `` the sale

:21:36.:21:43.

of key players. At the start of the week, if somebody had sent to me

:21:44.:21:49.

that you would sell two plaxers and get one back and turned the revenue

:21:50.:21:53.

over do the football club and invest the money into the football club,

:21:54.:21:57.

would I have done it, I would have done it. I think it is good

:21:58.:22:03.

business. Because it allowed the club to buy this striker. The

:22:04.:22:09.

21`year`old train today and for the first time after completing a club

:22:10.:22:13.

record move from Peterborough for a fee of around ?5.5 million. What

:22:14.:22:19.

about the manager played in use signing for Forest? Definitdly. When

:22:20.:22:26.

I came to the building, he lade me feel welcome. What can you promise

:22:27.:22:32.

the fans? I like to run and score goals. The one thing is that this

:22:33.:22:41.

football club, the owner has backed the manager. He has got the players

:22:42.:22:46.

in that I wanted to bring to the club. Exciting times. I would rather

:22:47.:22:50.

it be like that then in the sedate and quiet and no business bding

:22:51.:22:56.

done. It is certainly never dull here. All this before a ball has

:22:57.:23:01.

been kicked. Stuart Pearce takes charge of his first game ag`inst

:23:02.:23:02.

Blackpool on Saturday. Forest striker Simon Cox johned

Reading today, Jamie Mackie looks likely to go on

:23:10.:23:11.

loan there tomorrow and defdnders Dan Harding and Danny Collins have

:23:12.:23:14.

been made available for transfer. Two more signings for Notts County

:23:22.:23:24.

of players moving in or out From the last kick of the b`ll

:23:25.:23:42.

against Oldham in May, from directly the next day, we were looking at who

:23:43.:23:46.

to bring in and what type of people to let go. 17 gone, 14 brought in.

:23:47.:23:52.

It is a new club. I am hoping now that it would lead us into better

:23:53.:23:54.

times. In cricket, Nottinghamshire's Stuart

including ending the stubborn resistance of Hndian

one game to mention ` Derbyshire in the middle of their home
