job. It was a Nottingham City Hospital at an outpatient clinic the

day before a procedure to investigate if his lung cancer had

:02:04.:02:06.

should have been sent to a high dependency bed, he died just over an

:02:11.:02:15.

hour after being sent home. he fell, like a dead weight. He bangdd his

:02:16.:02:23.

head and then he just went out and that was it. He was dead. Hhs lips

:02:24.:02:29.

went blue. The trust has wrhtten to say sorry. They have offered sincere

:02:30.:02:34.

condolences, procedures havd changed. Kim said she cannot forget

or forgive. never, ever. Thdy took away my husband. They took `way my

:02:59.:03:04.

his chair watching his war films and his documentaries. She say she can

:03:05.:03:08.

not afford a headstone, it hs nearly 18 months since Richard died and

:03:09.:03:12.

only now that she feels strong enough to talk publicly abott what

:03:13.:03:13.

went wrong. a solicitor

:03:14.:03:17.

in Loughborough says the town's ?15 million Magistrates Court is only

:03:18.:03:20.

being run at 20% of its cap`city. The court now only deals with

:03:21.:03:25.

criminal cases three days a week, following a review by the Mhnistry

:03:26.:03:29.

of Justice. It's meant that many people are

:03:30.:03:33.

having to travel to Leicestdr It opened in 2008 and cost `

:03:34.:03:48.

reported ?50 million. But now there are claims that Loughborough

:03:49.:03:51.

Magistrates' Court stands l`rgely empty with criminal cases only 3

:03:52.:03:55.

days a week and many being dealt with in Leicester instead. One

:03:56.:04:01.

solicitor says it is proving expensive and inconvenient. There is

:04:02.:04:05.

a time and the cost and the fact that Leicester is sometimes at

:04:06.:04:13.

capacity. People sitting around for long periods. How big is thd burden?

:04:14.:04:18.

People have said they cannot get their and they get arrested and

:04:19.:04:23.

taken there by the police which is a burden to them, but it is a burden

:04:24.:04:29.

to the police, too. The changes are made this year following a review of

:04:30.:04:32.

the county's courts. The Ministry of Justice said the decision took into

:04:33.:04:35.

account a deep freezing crilinal workload and the need to make better

use of resources. It says whth criminal creators are still being

How busy court is contrary. But today, six cases were heard here at

:05:05.:05:08.

know the people involved and they know the local circumstances. You're

going to remove that. What `re the solution? I'm not sure. You can t

from a village social club. The tots time group in

Stoney Stanton is used by They say it's a vital resource

:08:30.:08:32.

for the community. But the social club

:08:33.:08:35.

which owns the building is holding firm ` and says the group h`s been

given adequate notice. Enjoying a summer party at this

toddler 's group in Stoney Stanton. There are two sessions a wedk run by

:08:53.:08:55.

volunteers, this group have rented the hall at the village sochal club

:08:56.:09:02.

for a year. But Jackie, who runs the group, says she is worried `bout the

:09:03.:09:06.

future after the committee gave her four`week notice to leave. H'm

:09:07.:09:11.

gutted for the community. They come from all around. We have a family

:09:12.:09:20.

that even come from Corby. They come here because of the social `spect of

:09:21.:09:30.

it. Once a week, the group runs a sessions focused on parents with

:09:31.:09:34.

twins. For many, it is a vital resource. It is devastating,

:09:35.:09:39.

really. We have such a wealth of experience around us, children with

:09:40.:09:43.

different ages. That is avahlable that micro`invaluable to me as a

:09:44.:09:47.

first time mum. Looe`macro ht is great to meet other parents of

:09:48.:09:53.

twins, so if it finishes, it will impact upon others as parents. A lot

:09:54.:10:02.

of the local venues are small. It would not the same kind of freedom

:10:03.:10:08.

flexibility. Jackie says shd will struggle to find another venue like

:10:09.:10:10.

this. She is determined to keep the group going. Have the social club

:10:11.:10:20.

said anything about these claims? We've had an e`mail from thdm, they

:10:21.:10:24.

said they are a not for profit organisation who do try to help

:10:25.:10:27.

community groups. But they have extensive bills to pay an ottright

:10:28.:10:31.

to generate income to pay those bills. They said in a case of this

:10:32.:10:36.

group that they have offered them a peppercorn rent up to this point.

:10:37.:10:40.

But they have bent over backwards to try and help them and the position

:10:41.:10:44.

is now that the 12 month rental agreement has come to an end, which

:10:45.:10:48.

is why they are being asked to move. Up until last Monday, they had not

:10:49.:10:52.

received any correspondence from the group. They were unaware of their

:10:53.:10:56.

problems to relocate. They say there were other groups, they are not the

:10:57.:11:00.

only ones who are being askdd to move as the club try to deal with

after the fire engine they were travelling in overturned

near Bakewell earlier this afternoon, when the crew were

on their way to a building fire Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service

already allowed to reclaim VAT. From today, the arts centre is also

:11:57.:12:03.

being included in the refund scheme. Next tonight, it's a pretty

:12:04.:12:11.

and popular market town. It also gets very busy,

:12:12.:12:13.

especially in August, and especially Yet today, eight weeks

:12:14.:12:17.

of work started to replace Bakewell's gas mains, beginning with

:12:18.:12:27.

the first road closure. Some of the traders aren't

at all happy, as Jo Healey reports. The first cut. Traders said they

will feel at the deepest. wd have a Bank Holiday coming up and `t this

:12:42.:12:47.

time of year, being a tourist town, we need as much trade coming in

:12:48.:12:52.

without disruption. All the customers complain about thd

:12:53.:12:56.

traffic, if you can't find ` space, you can't get in. They'll go

:12:57.:13:03.

elsewhere. It affects the trade Closing roads like this in ` busy

:13:04.:13:07.

market town is never going to be popular. But this work they say

:13:08.:13:15.

simply has to be done. We are replacing gas mains to ensure safe

:13:16.:13:18.

supplies and local homes and businesses for the next century So

:13:19.:13:23.

the existing mains are being replaced by hard wearing pl`stic

reliable gas supplies. More than forward it is the piping nedds

construction, it's something else. There needs to be some bettdr

:13:51.:13:55.

planning, some better understanding from all sorts of people in this

:13:56.:14:00.

town. They need to see how we can work together to produce a timetable

:14:01.:14:05.

that is good for everybody. Until then, the work, which began today,

:14:06.:14:08.

will run for two months. A cafe threatened with clostre

disabilities, that they are learning skills to take them into thd world

of work. I have seen people come along who were not engage vdry

:14:49.:14:51.

easily with people and we h`ve seen them flourish, moving into their own

:14:52.:14:56.

life. Get a paid job, Linton travel alone and gets all the skills that

:14:57.:15:02.

we take for granted. Months ago this rest up on the edge of a

:15:03.:15:06.

reservoir was threatened with closure due to cuts. It was people

:15:07.:15:12.

power that saved it. You can see that they must really like getting

up and coming here every dax. It is lovely, really. Looe`macro H did not

know until I came here `` they join us as individuals and the ldvers

Why those children's books of yesteryear are making

And will this week's weather have a happy ending?

:15:45.:15:52.

If you reach for that centr`l heating but this weekend, you may be

:15:53.:15:59.

doing it again next week. I'll be searching high and low for `ny sign

:16:00.:16:01.

of sunshine, later in the programme. After a decade away, Leicester City

:16:02.:16:09.

are back in the top flight of English football and looking

:16:10.:16:13.

every inch like they belong there. A packed King Power Stadium watched

:16:14.:16:16.

the Foxes start with a draw Ten years this lot have been

:16:17.:16:19.

waiting, No wonder there is so much

:16:20.:16:30.

excitement at the King Power. Roberto Martinez spent ?28 lillion

:16:31.:16:34.

on just a single player and it is not going to get `ny

:16:35.:16:44.

easier for Leicester. Everton really believed thex could

:16:45.:16:48.

gate`crash A proper test for Leicester,

:16:49.:16:50.

less space, less time. Aidan McGeady had a square foot

:16:51.:16:55.

of goal available to him, And they got it

:16:56.:17:05.

from a record signing. It brings more confidence to me

:17:06.:17:12.

as a striker and The Foxes defended well, but close

:17:13.:17:20.

to half`time, a series is of slips So Leicester had to chase rhght

:17:21.:17:32.

through the second half Their reward, when it came,

:17:33.:17:39.

was deserved. Striker Chris Wood says he wants

:17:40.:17:44.

to fight for his place this year. This was a blow landed

:17:45.:17:47.

in that battle. It is a brilliant feeling,

:17:48.:17:49.

I dreamt about it since I w`s This is where I want to be

:17:50.:17:52.

and scoring those goals is dxactly As the game wore on

:17:53.:17:57.

into stoppage time, it remahned agonisingly tight, you'd have to

:17:58.:18:01.

have a good reason to leave, right? A point

:18:02.:18:04.

against Everton was the restlt. The tempo was higher in the game

:18:05.:18:12.

and the boys did feel it. Stuart Pearce says he's ple`sed with

:18:13.:18:19.

what he has seen from his Nottingham Forest team so f`r, but

:18:20.:18:37.

he's not happy with the defdnding. Joe Mason was unmarked

:18:38.:18:40.

as he headed home Bolton's opener. Forest equaliser from

:18:41.:18:44.

Britt Assombalonga part of the Forest attack that h`s been

:18:45.:18:46.

praised by the boss. But he called Bolton's second

:18:47.:18:50.

defensive hash up as David Wheater It was left to Britt Assomb`longa to

:18:51.:18:53.

equalise again after he was brought down in the box

:18:54.:18:58.

and his penalty was unusual, going But he looks

:18:59.:19:02.

like being a handful this sdason. The chairman put his money down

:19:03.:19:07.

and backed our judgement in regard Steve McClaren says he's pldased the

:19:08.:19:10.

Derby County's start the se`son The Rams drew nil`nil at

:19:11.:19:18.

Sheffield Wednesday had not yet to concede a goal in their thrde

:19:19.:19:22.

League Cup games. We have to be creating chances,

:19:23.:19:26.

not taking enough. Notts County's Shaun Derry said

:19:27.:19:29.

their home defeat to Fleetwood is unacceptable ? Notts lost to

:19:30.:19:33.

the Jamie Proctor goal. Mansfield Town beat Oxford 2`1,

Ryan Tafazolli giving them The game was heading for dr`w

when Adam Murray scored Nottinghamshire are very much in the

County Championship hunt after the Kindle fans today. They werd a shaky

Leicestershire clung on to ` draw against Surrey in division two.

:20:18.:20:18.

Great Britain topped the medals table at the European

:20:19.:20:21.

And it's thanks to a brilliant effort from athletes

:20:22.:20:24.

from Loughborough including Adam Gemili and Martyn Roondy.

:20:25.:20:26.

Adam Gemili only took up sprinting in 2012. He was a non`leagud

:20:27.:20:39.

footballer. He is a quick ldarner, or is he just quick. He started a

:20:40.:20:42.

fantastic weekend the Loughborough athletes. His team`mates had already

:20:43.:20:48.

won a gold in the 100. I'm sharing a room with James, he went and won the

:20:49.:20:53.

100 metres. I thought it wotld be nice if we could get two titles in

:20:54.:20:59.

our little camp. Adam Gemilh is part of a group of talented sprinters

:21:00.:21:03.

based in Loughborough. They won gold in the relay, and James Ellhngton

:21:04.:21:09.

got off to a great start. Britain often has battered trouble but there

:21:10.:21:19.

was no sign of a breakdown here No wonder he is so good at rel`y.

:21:20.:21:25.

Richard Kilty took over as they held off the challenge from the French

:21:26.:21:31.

and Germans. They left it all former footballer to bring it home. Adam

:21:32.:21:36.

Gemili said he dreamt of he`ring the national anthem, but it will just

:21:37.:21:42.

sounded as good at an athletics game. When you are part of ` team,

:21:43.:21:50.

you work well together and H dread the three of those guys. To see them

:21:51.:21:53.

coming out with a gold medal is amazing. Martyn Rooney, not a bad

:21:54.:22:02.

pundit but an even better rtnner. He followed up his gold in the

:22:03.:22:07.

individual events buying brhng the 4x4 team to yet another gold. The

:22:08.:22:12.

medals were won in Z?rich, be made in Loughborough. `` but madd.

A 15`year`old from Leicester has won Britain's first gold medal

:22:17.:22:19.

Ben Dijkstra won the triathlon gold in Nanjing in a dramatic race.

:22:20.:22:23.

He was outside of the medals after the swim, but fought

:22:24.:22:26.

It all came down to the running and it was a photo finish bdtween

It took half an hour to dechde that Ben had won Gold.

England's women won the Rugby World Cup in Paris.

:22:40.:22:42.

Leicestershire's Emily Scarratt and Vicky Fleetwood were in

Scarratt, who's from Desford, scored this try to clinch the victory.

:22:48.:22:53.

She also scored a conversion and three penalties.

:22:54.:22:55.

Many pundits have said she was the player of the tournament.

England have waited 20 years to lift the World Cup `
