There's more throughout the evening on the BBC News Channel, we are back

:00:00.:00:11.

With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:12.:00:17.

An international service was held in Leicester today to pay tribute

:00:18.:00:21.

to nine soldiers from Belgium who died in World War One.

:00:22.:00:24.

They succumbed to their injuries while being treated at the local

:00:25.:00:27.

hospital, which is now part of the University of Leicester.

:00:28.:00:30.

The names of Belgian soldiers who never returned home. Injured in

:00:31.:00:50.

France, they reported that treatment but died shortly after. So many

:00:51.:00:57.

people lied for what they believed to be such a short war and it

:00:58.:01:08.

wasn't. `` died. The event was also attended by representatives from the

:01:09.:01:13.

country. I studied here ten years ago and I wasn't aware there were

:01:14.:01:17.

nine patriots of mine buried here. It is interesting to note that we

:01:18.:01:24.

can publish that a bit more and make it known more to those living back

:01:25.:01:33.

home in Belgium. This man's mother was from Belgium. This reminds me of

:01:34.:01:38.

my mother. It reminds me of many happy times that we went to Belgium

:01:39.:01:46.

for our holidays. At a time when the 100th anniversary of World War I is

:01:47.:01:51.

being commemorated, people here in Leicester say it is important to not

:01:52.:01:54.

all of those who sacrificed their lives.

:01:55.:01:59.

The King Power Stadium was packed, as expected,

:02:00.:02:01.

for Leicester City's first game back in the Premier League.

:02:02.:02:03.

The Foxes have been hosting Everton for their first match back

:02:04.:02:06.

There were high hopes for the game and the season

:02:07.:02:10.

We played really well last season and I think we have a chance against

:02:11.:02:21.

some of the big clubs. If we played like we did last year and attack, we

:02:22.:02:28.

might surprise a few teams. Once we see how we perform against Everton,

:02:29.:02:31.

that is when we will know a little bit more about how the season will

:02:32.:02:33.

go. In the Championship,

:02:34.:02:39.

Forest also drew 2`2 at Bolton, while it was a goalless draw

:02:40.:02:41.

for Derby at Sheffield Wednesday. In League One,

:02:42.:02:44.

Notts County lost 1`0 to Fleetwood. And in League Two, Mansfield Town

:02:45.:02:46.

beat Oxford United 2`1. Another great win for Loughborough

:02:47.:02:49.

athletes at the After James Dasoalu took gold

:02:50.:02:51.

earlier this week in the 100 metres, Adam Gemeli took gold last night

:02:52.:02:55.

in the 200 metres. In a time under 20 seconds, he not

:02:56.:02:59.

only set a new personal best, but also became the first ever Britain

:03:00.:03:03.

to run the 200 metres sub`20 twice. I'm so happy. Just to get out and

:03:04.:03:20.

become a European champion, it is something that was a big target for

:03:21.:03:23.

me this year and to achieve it, it is amazing for me. I am really

:03:24.:03:29.

happy. To break 20 seconds, I did it last year but to do that again it is

:03:30.:03:33.

a great thing. I am sharing a room with James Dasaolu. It would be nice

:03:34.:03:40.

if we could get both titles in our little cam. I have done that.

:03:41.:03:42.

Rutland adventurer Sarah Outen has completed a major milestone

:03:43.:03:45.

in her attempt to cross the world using only human power.

:03:46.:03:48.

She's successfully rowed across the North Pacific, the same

:03:49.:03:50.

stretch that two years ago saw her abandon her attempt and need

:03:51.:03:53.

She restarted the row from Japan 101 days ago and has arrived now

:03:54.:03:59.

From there, she'll continue her trip by road.

:04:00.:04:10.

It has been a cool blustery day today and if anything, the winds

:04:11.:04:17.

will be picking up. There will be a lot of dry and bright weather but

:04:18.:04:21.

the winds will make it feel quite nippy once again. It is try at the

:04:22.:04:26.

moment. We will see little bit of rain pushing into washed in parts

:04:27.:04:35.

and that will slowly go southwards. We are staying into double figures

:04:36.:04:39.

with those of around 12 to 13 Celsius. Tomorrow morning will start

:04:40.:04:45.

off fairly damp. There will be some dry and bright weather in the

:04:46.:04:48.

afternoon. One or two showers following on behind. It will feel

:04:49.:04:55.

quite cold out there and temperatures tomorrow really

:04:56.:04:58.

struggling. We are looking at highs of around 17 to 18 Celsius. That is

:04:59.:05:02.

it for now. Goodbye. The start of the football season

:05:03.:05:22.

reminds us autumn is around the corner and the an autumnal flavour

:05:23.:05:29.

for the next few days. For Sunday, north-westerly winds and some rain.

:05:30.:05:34.

The rain comes from this front crossing
