First tonight ` a police inspector from Leicestershire's been

:00:00.:00:16.

chosen to reform the way th`t forces across the country use controversial

:00:17.:00:18.

Communities will tell us th`t it has a damaging effect. We need to get it

:00:19.:00:40.

right every time. Also tonight that project that could save the taxpayer

:00:41.:00:45.

millions. And the injured soldier who was

:00:46.:00:59.

warned he might never walk `gain. And as business numbers in case we

:01:00.:01:04.

look at how to list such actions are finding new ways of drawing people

:01:05.:01:05.

in. First tonight ` a police

:01:06.:01:16.

inspector from Leicestershire's been chosen to reform the way th`t forces

:01:17.:01:18.

across the country use controversial Nick Glynn has been seconded to the

:01:19.:01:21.

College of Policing, after the Home Secretary said ethnic minorhties

:01:22.:01:40.

were being targeted unfairlx. Inspector Glynn's been speaking to

:01:41.:01:42.

our Social Affairs Correspondent, When he has not in uniform he has

:01:43.:01:54.

been targeted by members of a neighbouring force. We know we need

:01:55.:02:41.

to make changes. And Derbyshire you are almost three

:02:42.:02:45.

times more likely to be targeted if you are black. People from other

:02:46.:02:48.

ethnic minorities were less likely to be searched. My friend got

:02:49.:03:04.

searched. He found that upsdtting. When I got stopped and searched it

:03:05.:03:16.

made me not want to join thd police. I put myself in their shoes. Now

:03:17.:03:25.

every front`line officer is being trained to use stop and search

:03:26.:03:32.

powers fairly. It has a damaging effect on trust in

:03:33.:03:39.

the police. The Government hs watching stop and search closely. If

:03:40.:03:44.

figures do not improve the Home Secretary says she will change the

:03:45.:03:57.

law. Overall you stop and search figures

:03:58.:04:02.

have come down. But you are still more likely to be stopped in

:04:03.:04:05.

Leicestershire if you are black and if you are white. The use of stop

:04:06.:04:33.

and search is under scrutinx. We are working to improve the way we use

:04:34.:04:40.

our stop and search powers. Most stop and searches tend to bd on

:04:41.:04:45.

suspicion of possessing drugs. Serious as those offences are there

:04:46.:04:50.

more pressing priorities such as burglary and violent crime?

:04:51.:04:55.

Drug`related criminality is a pressing priority for a number of

:04:56.:05:01.

communities. Over 50% of stop and search is around targeting drugs

:05:02.:05:05.

related incidents. The work that is being done, of which we are part of,

:05:06.:05:15.

is aimed at improving the w`y we target those areas that are causing

:05:16.:05:18.

most concern to our communities Is there a feeling that it hs worth

:05:19.:05:24.

stopping black people because they are more likely to commit crime I

:05:25.:05:32.

have two C, completely not. The view is about using intelligence to

:05:33.:05:38.

target areas. To make sure that we can protect our communities and

:05:39.:05:44.

targets patrols in the most effective way. I completely disputes

:05:45.:05:48.

that. You can reassure the black community that they are not being

:05:49.:05:55.

picked on. No particular colmunity is being picked on. But we have

:05:56.:06:00.

improved massively. We are tsing our powers of stop and search, `nd we

:06:01.:06:13.

are working together with community groups, to get this much better

:06:14.:06:25.

Plans to expand a scheme that supports hundreds of troubldd

:06:26.:06:27.

families in Leicestershire could save the taxpayer up to ?50 million.

:06:28.:06:30.

The County Council says it will make the saving by providing

:06:31.:06:32.

targeted practical help and support to families who feel trapped.

:06:33.:06:35.

And with more Government funding coming,

:06:36.:06:36.

thousands more families look set to benefit, as Victoria Hicks reports.

:06:37.:06:51.

This person felt there was no weight at the end of the town now coping

learning curve. It is playthme at this sure start centre. This person

:07:18.:07:24.

sees her support worker is helping them for the future. We are looking

:07:25.:07:39.

at the entire picture. Beforehand it was like I was trapped. I h`ve been

:07:40.:07:55.

taken away from that. The Government estimates vulnerable familids in

:07:56.:07:59.

this region cost the taxpaydr ? 58 million per year. We believd, at the

:08:00.:08:10.

Government has agreed, that we will see a minimum of ?50 million when

:08:11.:08:23.

this scheme is fully operathonal. With more Government funding on its

:08:24.:08:27.

way Leicestershire county council said it had hopes to help 2700 more

world famous specialist intdnsive care unit ECMO may have to be split

children's heart surgery in ECMO, it is an artificial lhne. It

Royal infirmary. It might boost Leicester 's chances

:10:37.:10:41.

of keeping children's heart surgery which is being looked at as part of

:10:42.:10:47.

a new National review. Now the bosses are under pressure to provide

:10:48.:10:51.

all children services on a single site. Heart surgery may movd to the

:10:52.:11:05.

Royal infirmary. This person has had three hdart

:11:06.:11:10.

operations. He parents are tsed to uncertainty over the future of the

:11:11.:11:22.

service. If the way of retahning some level of service is to combine

:11:23.:11:32.

two units to meet the high standards then that has got to be a positive.

:11:33.:11:38.

But this health campaigner says Lester does not get what it needs.

Few experts expect the revidw to be finished this side of the gdneral

of travel. Season tickets and many peak

services are regulated by the Department of transport. It is

unfortunate but somebody has 2p for the railways to be maintaindd.

:14:46.:14:51.

Everything goes up every ye`r. It is too expensive. Look at the dxample

of Italy and Germany. It is so much cheaper. According to the Mhdlands

be 25% more expensive than four years ago. This cannot go on. But

:15:28.:15:37.

the Government argues that the ticket price increases are finding

an expanding and improving service. If you bought a season tickdt from

Nottingham to Derby four ye`rs ago, you would have to find an additional
