And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale.

:00:00.:00:21.

Good evening. Universities across the

:00:22.:00:25.

East Midlands have reported record numbers of inquiries from school

:00:26.:00:27.

leavers on A Level results day. There are more university places

:00:28.:00:30.

available than ever before ` good news for students hoping to

:00:31.:00:33.

make the grade. Navtej Johal reports.

:00:34.:00:45.

And was almost over for these students. In this boy's envelope was

:00:46.:00:58.

exactly what she needed. I cannot describe how I feel right now. Even

:00:59.:01:07.

some of those who did not get what they wanted were still able to

:01:08.:01:16.

celebrate. I did not get what I wanted but with some stroke of luck

:01:17.:01:21.

I have got through. We want to make sure that as many students as want

:01:22.:01:28.

to go to university can do. That is really good for the students and the

:01:29.:01:36.

country in general. Scenes of the the spear where murdered across the

:01:37.:01:42.

region. How are you feeling? Nervous. Gridlock. `` good luck.

:01:43.:01:55.

What did you do? I got into university, I am happy. I have got

:01:56.:02:04.

into my apprenticeship with Rolls`Royce. I am relieved now. I

:02:05.:02:16.

did not have a back`up plan. A day of tension, it tears and triumph.

:02:17.:02:28.

And, as we've seen, not everyone was aiming for a University place.

:02:29.:02:33.

So are more students choosing work instead of a degree?

:02:34.:02:35.

That's a question I put to Sue Husband who is director

:02:36.:02:37.

of apprenticeships at the Skills Funding Agency.

:02:38.:02:46.

Absolutely. They can search for apprenticeships or look at our app

:02:47.:02:58.

which will give them all the opportunities in their area. It

:02:59.:03:02.

gives young people the opportunity to be in the workplace already, not

:03:03.:03:09.

only learning but learning at the same time. It allows them to

:03:10.:03:13.

progress through business and businesses tell as that apprentices

:03:14.:03:20.

are really valuable to them and contribute to the results. Do you

:03:21.:03:26.

feel competition with universities, some of whom are dropping their

:03:27.:03:35.

requirements for students. They are both valuable options and it is up

:03:36.:03:41.

to people to choose what is best for them.

:03:42.:03:47.

A shopkeeper says he's been forced to use weapons to defend

:03:48.:03:51.

his store against petty thieves. Ali Nowroozi has chased away several

:03:52.:03:54.

shoplifters from his corner shop in Derby.

:03:55.:03:56.

He says some have even agreed to hand back the goods they stole.

:03:57.:03:58.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball, reports.

:03:59.:04:10.

This man tried to steal a bottle, he threw a bottle at him and then gave

:04:11.:04:21.

chase with a wooden bar. What do his customers think? He did not expect

:04:22.:04:27.

it, the guy who came in, it serves him right. His very direct approach

:04:28.:04:38.

to protecting his business might raise some eyebrows. He does not see

:04:39.:04:44.

any alternative, having been challenged 20 times in three years.

:04:45.:04:52.

Of course I am angry. I pay tax and everything. Across the East Midlands

:04:53.:05:01.

there was a sharp increase in shoplifting last year. Many thefts

:05:02.:05:10.

are not even reported. Most shoplifting is happening at the big

:05:11.:05:15.

supermarket chains and police say those companies need to do more to

:05:16.:05:22.

protect themselves. They do not advise protecting businesses like

:05:23.:05:27.

this. It is unlikely to deter this shopkeeper.

:05:28.:05:34.

Three more people have been arreste in connection with the death of a

:05:35.:05:38.

seven`year`old girl in Nottingham. The body of Shanay Walker was

:05:39.:05:41.

discovered at a house in Bestwood Park a fortnight ago.

:05:42.:05:44.

She'd died from a head injury. Two women, aged 21 and 53 and

:05:45.:05:48.

a 22`year`old man were arrested on suspicion of murder earlier today.

:05:49.:05:50.

Shanay's aunt Kay`Ann Morris has already been

:05:51.:05:51.

charged with her murder. Born at the lines is to start ``

Next term selected school year groups in Leicester, Leicestershire,

:06:37.:06:37.

Rutland and Lincolnshire will be targeted.

:06:38.:06:41.

Now the weather. This was spotted earlier today, a funnel cloud. Thank

:06:42.:06:53.

you everyone who sent in photographs. It looks like being a

:06:54.:07:00.

mostly dry day tomorrow with plenty of sunshine around. For now we still

:07:01.:07:05.

have a fair few showers pushing through. Those will die out and it

:07:06.:07:12.

will become largely dry and clear for the rest of the night. Foremost,

:07:13.:07:19.

a dry start with any cloud breaking to get decent spells of sunshine

through the morning. In the afternoon there is a potential of a

:07:25.:07:30.

few showers. A good deal of dry weather and warmer with highs

:07:31.:07:34.

are very few showers around. It may be dry Saturday and Sunday, a chilly

:07:35.:07:39.

wind, the national picture again with Louise now.

:07:40.:07:45.

Many of us have been asking the question, where has summer gone?

:07:46.:07:49.

Today, no exception. We started off with a cluster of showers across

:07:50.:07:53.

Wales and the south-west. They gathered in intensity and pace as

:07:54.:07:59.

they pushed furthered east, bringing localised flash flooding and hail

:08:00.:08:01.

with the thunder storms as
