Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn. People

:00:15.:00:18.

in Newark have been braving the rain to re`enact a journey made by

:00:19.:00:22.

the town's First World War soldiers Scouts, soldiers and members of the

:00:23.:00:25.

public marched the 16 mile route, among them one man following

:00:26.:00:29.

in the footsteps of his father. They stood in silence as thd rain

:00:30.:00:54.

poured down, just to show their respect for the eighth Batt`lion of

:00:55.:00:58.

the Sherwood Forest as they didn't do 100 years earlier stood hn the

:00:59.:01:03.

same place. They were about to go to war. John Green's father was one of

:01:04.:01:12.

them. He was wounded three times and gassed. He was transferred to the

:01:13.:01:15.

first Sherwood Forest is whdre he won the military Cross. I al lucky

:01:16.:01:20.

to be here, and we are all lucky to be here, thanks to chaps like my

:01:21.:01:24.

father, many hundreds of thousands of them, without them, we would not

be standing here. Soldiers of the Mercian Regiment led the 16 mile

:01:31.:01:33.

march. Many of the public w`tched. Some even took part. The people of

:01:45.:01:49.

here today means a lot. I w`nted to pay my respects because thex fought

:01:50.:01:53.

for us. And without them, what would we have? In 1914, the soldidrs had

:01:54.:02:00.

no idea what they were marching into. Today, nothing, not even the

:02:01.:02:06.

rain, was going to stop York from saying thank you.

:02:07.:02:11.

That heavy rain caused disrtption across much of the East Midlands

:02:12.:02:14.

There was a flood warning earlier for the River Leen `t

:02:15.:02:17.

Derbyshire County Cricket Club's one day match against Essex

:02:18.:02:21.

this evening had to be cancdlled, and a fallen tree is now blocking

:02:22.:02:24.

the road between Stenson and Findern in South Derbyshire.

:02:25.:02:26.

Tributes were paid today in Derbyshire to medical sttdent

:02:27.:02:28.

Neil Dalton, who was killed in Borneo.

:02:34.:02:36.

This morning prayers were s`id at churches in nearby Heage and Belper.

:02:37.:02:40.

Candle`lit vigils have also been held in the street in Malaysia

:02:41.:02:43.

The East Midlands saw the hhghest number of patients facing long

:02:44.:02:51.

Nearly 63,000 patients were left in ambulances for more than half an

:02:52.:02:58.

That's according to Freedom of Information figures

:02:59.:03:06.

Nationally the figure was 300,000.

:03:07.:03:08.

However the Department of Hdalth says it's making good progrdss

:03:17.:03:25.

She will officially take up her role as Archdeacon of Nottingham

:03:26.:03:27.

She's previously been an advocate of women bishops.

:03:28.:03:31.

I hope that it will encourage woman in the spices to see that they can

reach all the positions in the church, and that all doors `re

:03:58.:04:03.

rocket, and it fell to Mich`il Antonio who started the party. Five

:04:04.:04:07.

minutes later, another new boy, Chris Burke curled in a shot. A

:04:08.:04:14.

winning start for Derby County, one of the favourites to go up this

:04:15.:04:18.

season. Newly ripped `` newly promoted Rod Rahm did not m`ke it

:04:19.:04:24.

easy. And a late winner frol Jack Hendrick allowed coach Stevd

:04:25.:04:26.

victory. `` Rotherham. Notts County have seen 17 players leave `nd 4

Northampton. Leicester play their first game
