Good evening. That's all from us.

:00:12.:00:14.

First tonight the amazing project made in Derby to

:00:15.:00:17.

A quarter of a million ceramic poppies have

:00:18.:00:21.

Almost 900,000 are being planted at the Tower of London,

:00:22.:00:26.

each one symbolising a fallen serviceman or woman.

:00:27.:00:28.

Today, the artist behind the project said he'd been

:00:29.:00:31.

A work of art, a memorial but also a fundraising effort. Pouring out of

:00:32.:00:51.

the tower of London, last week the first instalment of poppies were

:00:52.:00:54.

officially revealed to the public and put on sale. The hope is to

:00:55.:00:58.

raise millions of pounds for charity, but no one predicted just

:00:59.:01:03.

how quickly the poppies would sell. At a studio in Derby, the artist has

:01:04.:01:10.

been amazed at how the public have embraced the project. With 250,000

:01:11.:01:15.

poppies sold within seven days. It's quite a shock that so many people

:01:16.:01:18.

have got behind it. It's not a fun thing I have produced. It's

:01:19.:01:22.

something that has a meaning behind it. It has a really big meaning for

:01:23.:01:26.

lots of people. I am really happy that people are actually wanting

:01:27.:01:31.

them. Each poppy is sold for ?25 with a net proceeds split between

:01:32.:01:37.

six military charities. ?2. 50 from every poppy goes to charity. So if

:01:38.:01:43.

we sell all that's 2. ?2.2 million. If we sell all, all the Ned proceeds

:01:44.:01:47.

will go to charity. We are being coy about that because we are still

:01:48.:01:50.

making them, still building at the moment but that could be many

:01:51.:01:53.

millions of pounds by the time we are finished. The team in Derby

:01:54.:01:57.

continue to produce poppies around the clock. The last poppy will be

:01:58.:02:00.

planted on Remembrance Day. Next, how people here are helping

:02:01.:02:05.

victims of the conflict in Gaza. Hospitals

:02:06.:02:08.

in the East Midlands are collecting thousands of items of medical kit to

:02:09.:02:10.

send to the war`torn region. They're appealing for equipment

:02:11.:02:13.

the NHS says it no longer needs. The first consignment went out today

:02:14.:02:15.

from hospitals in Derby and Nottinghamshire, as our health

:02:16.:02:18.

correspondent Rob Sissons reports. This is like all the airways. You

:02:19.:02:31.

have the tubes in. They say it's kit the NHS no longer wants, but Gaza

:02:32.:02:36.

needs. We have seen it on the television with the children, with

:02:37.:02:41.

their eyes, I have found eye shields. At kings Mill they've

:02:42.:02:45.

collected hundreds of items in a couple of days. We are told it's

:02:46.:02:49.

things the NHS would either throw away, past the expiry date or use

:02:50.:02:55.

Father training. We are diligent in what we acquire and how we use it.

:02:56.:03:00.

It's only those stuff which have gone past the time or times opened

:03:01.:03:05.

up and not used during surgery. They hope this will save lives. I was

:03:06.:03:10.

really thinking we are not going to have that much but when I searched

:03:11.:03:14.

around we have expired things, things that reps have given us over

:03:15.:03:19.

the years and never used them. Nightly TV images of the devastation

:03:20.:03:23.

and injuries in Gaza prompted a surgeon in Derby to do something. He

:03:24.:03:28.

set about getting Derby hospitals to gather unwanted equipment and

:03:29.:03:31.

encouraged other hospitals like Kings Mill to get involved. This is

:03:32.:03:36.

not about politics at all. It's purely us as medical caring

:03:37.:03:39.

professionals with a duty of care trying to aleave ate the suffering

:03:40.:03:43.

of fellow `` alleviate the suffering of fellow human beings. Here, 35,000

:03:44.:03:48.

items collected are off on the first leg of the journey to Gaza. It's

:03:49.:03:52.

hoped international charities will get the aid through. And for the

:03:53.:03:55.

children, some toys. The parents of a Derbyshire medical

:03:56.:03:59.

student stabbed to death last week in Borneo have described him as

:04:00.:04:02.

caring, thoughtful and witty and say 22`year`old Neil Dalton from Belper

:04:03.:04:05.

was killed with a friend. Neil never thought twice

:04:06.:04:11.

about helping others. He achieved so much and made

:04:12.:04:17.

so many friends. Four men have been arrested

:04:18.:04:19.

for murder. Police in Borneo say

:04:20.:04:22.

the four have admitted the crime. Two men who killed an Iraqi refugee

:04:23.:04:27.

have been found guilty of murder. Patryk Strutkowski and

:04:28.:04:30.

Pawel Bugajski carried out the attack in the Meadows area

:04:31.:04:32.

of Nottingham in January. They used a belt to strangle

:04:33.:04:36.

56`year`old Hama Faraj Noori. Archaeologists working on a

:04:37.:04:39.

"lost" medieval manor`house in Leicestershire say they've

:04:40.:04:46.

discovered further buildings The 12th century house

:04:47.:04:48.

in the village of Croxton Kerrial disappeared from maps by the 1800s,

:04:49.:04:57.

as Paul Bradshaw reports. This field in Leicestershire has

:04:58.:05:07.

been hiding a secret for more than 800 years. This is the complex.

:05:08.:05:15.

Basically, the Manor House here, beyond that we have the massive

:05:16.:05:19.

barn. Evidence of other buildings going around what we think was a

:05:20.:05:24.

cobbled yard. Again, dating from around the 12th century, we have

:05:25.:05:27.

evidence of that and wonderful pottery from that date. A group of

:05:28.:05:30.

amateur archaeologists have been digging this site since 2012 and

:05:31.:05:36.

have made some remarkable finds. This is the star find which has come

:05:37.:05:43.

out of the well. It's a late 12th century jug, and it's been down

:05:44.:05:47.

there for about 800 years at the bottom of the well. We were the

:05:48.:05:53.

first people to see it for about 8 hunsz years `` 800 years.

:05:54.:06:00.

With all the benefits of medieval mod`cons. The Lord would have had a

:06:01.:06:04.

private chamber at the top. This is a private toilet. Every new and

:06:05.:06:08.

again some peasant would have had to clear this out and spread it on the

:06:09.:06:12.

fields and use it for fertiliser. The dig will continue until next

:06:13.:06:14.

year. In the Capital One Cup it's

:06:15.:06:18.

finished Tranmere 0, Forest 1. Michail Antonio getting the goal

:06:19.:06:23.

for Forest after 11 minutes. And Sheffield Wednesday 3,

:06:24.:06:25.

Notts County 0. That's the news. But we need to know

:06:26.:06:37.

how the weather looks. I will leave you with Kaye.

:06:38.:06:42.

It's been a blustery day today. We are still being influenced by brisk

:06:43.:06:51.

westerly winds. Tomorrow we will get slow improvements through the day.

:06:52.:06:55.

The winds will be easing down and there will be fewer showers. So more

:06:56.:06:57.

in the way of sunshine. We have seen a few showers this

:06:58.:07:03.

evening. One or two will continue through the night. The majority

:07:04.:07:07.

fading through the early hours. It's generally dlie with clear ``

:07:08.:07:13.

generally dry with clear spells. Tomorrow morning there will be some

:07:14.:07:16.

showers around from the word go but they will be fewer and further

:07:17.:07:20.

between and they will be lighter, as well. In general, more sunshine into

:07:21.:07:25.

the afternoon. The winds slowly easing down, so feeling better.

:07:26.:07:29.

Highs of 19 or 20. That's it from us. I will leave you with the

:07:30.:07:31.

outlook. Matt is of a messy couple of days with some

:07:32.:07:35.

heavy rain and showers but here'sing Matt with the national weather.

:07:36.:07:40.

Good evening. Given the recent change in weather conditions I am

:07:41.:07:44.

esure a few of you have mentioned "autumn" who would blame new western

:07:45.:07:48.

Scotland today a mid-August day, driving wind, strong winds,

:07:49.:07:52.

temperatures at one po incompetent were just 13. A better day tomorrow,

:07:53.:07:56.

here, though. The cloud we have had today will work southwards. You will

:07:57.:08:00.

notice still unstable air across England and Wales. Lively

:08:01.:08:02.

thunderstorms through today. They are fading away by in large. One or

:08:03.:08:06.

two showers in the West but longer, clearer periods here. We still have

:08:07.:08:10.

that cloud, pushing through to the Scotland, Northern Ireland, north

:08:11.:08:13.

Wales and the north Midlands by the end of the night. But rather than

:08:14.:08:17.

persistent rain, away from the

:08:18.:08:18.
