It happened on Friday evening near to Tutbury Mill.

People living near new homes which are being built say they were
shocked to discover a three`storey house going up right behind theirs.
They say they've lost their light and their privacy,
and want building work to stop. Jo Healey reports.
Three neighbours, all distrdssed to see the 3`storey house going up at
the bottom of their gardens. First thing in the morning and last thing
at night, any time we are at the window or in the back garden, this
is what I am greeted with, this monster of a wall. There is no
privacy, I have lost all natural sunlight. I did not buy my property
to feel as if I am living in a prison. This is all that I can see.
I can't believe that they would think to build a house right there
in front of somebody's back garden. To look out of the window and see
that monstrosity is horribld. There's no light and it is
disgusting. Nottingham city homes and the
council say they are building 5 new homes here. They say residents were
invited to discuss the plans, and they consulted on the application.
This is more true a picture of what you can see up how much of `n
eyesore this is. And it is not finished yet. Valerie says she could
not have known from the plans it would look like this, and w`nts the
work to stop. Derby Mountain Rescue Team were
called to help a climber thhs weekend who'd fallen to the foot
of a cliff in Matlock Bath. He'd been climbing High Tor
yesterday when he slipped. Rescuers abseiled to reach him, and
secured him on a stretcher, before It's understood he suffered
leg and facial injuries. In football, Leicester suffdred
their first defeat in their new league, while there were huge
wins for both Derby and Fordst. With your round`up of the action,
here's Kirsty Edwards. A spirited performance from
Leicester City in their red kit saw them look far from out of place for
the first hour at Chelsea. Hn the end, they were undone by Didgo
Costa, Chelsea's ?32 million summer signing. Then, an unfortunate
deflection off Hazard's shot sealed their two ` zero defeat. Nottingham
Forest remain top of the championship next to a 4`0 win over
Reading. Matty Fryatt headed in a go`l, and
also getting in on the act was another summer signing, Brit is
sombre longer. An impressivd attacking display from Derbx County
as well. Jamie Ward started things off for the Rams with a find finish,
then after Fulham had equalhsed there was only one team and head.
Craig Bryson restored Derby's leave. Last season's top scorer Chris
Martin then added another two. His second game after Simon Dawkins
shot came off the post. Momdnts later, Dawkins had better ltck with
another shot to complete a 4`1 rout. Notts County got their second win in
a row next to a first`half goal from Gary Jones, and then Neil Noble s
deflected free kick. 2`0, the final score at Port Vale.
This appointment for Mansfidld town, who lost 2`0 away at Dagenh`m and
Redbridge. And staying with football, but to
one of the most famous scends from The Great War, recreated today as a
Nottinghamshire team played against a side from Germany in a match to
foster Peace and Reconciliation A football field in Flanders field.
We are in Belgium, filming ` series of events marking the centenary of
the start of the great War. This is one of those events, a football
match reminiscent of the Christmas truce football matches of 1814.
Playing today, Newark town's under 21 's, and the German side. It is
very hard `` a very hard`fotght match, but for today's Brit`in these
and reconciliation. All this week we will be filming a series of events
around these commemorations, speaking to many of the people
involved. I hope you can john us. Come on, Newark!
Let's check the bank holidax forecast now with Sara.
Good evening. It has been nhce to see a dry day today, even though we
lost the sunshine a little bit into the afternoon, due to this weather
fronts moving up from the south`west gradually overnight. We start to see
the first signs of it coming in into the early hours in the East
Midlands, and it will be a lild night. Temperatures down to a
minimum of 11. Through tomorrow morning, we seek to weather fronts
with us for bank holiday Monday The first produces some patchy rain the
second, hot on its heels, ghves is a very wet afternoon with somd heavy
rainfall, and a daytime temperature no higher than 15 Celsius, so
feeling quite cold tomorrow with the wet weather around. Picking up again
by Tuesday and Wednesday. More for you when we're back
at 10:15 tonight. Join me then. After that cold start this morning,
it has been quite a nice day for most of us. We have seen cloud
amounts increasing but it is this cloud that is coming in from the
Atlantic which is going to bring change in weather. Not too much rain
from it, further patchy rain across Northern Ireland overnight, some
rain at times across Wales and the south-west, shovelling further
east. Far north of England and particularly Scotland, saying drive.
Clearer skies, still quite cold elsewhere, not as cold as it was
last night. Cloudy day tomorrow across England and Wales, some rain
at times, heavy rain, brighter colours coming into the south-west,
through the morning, pushing into the Midlands, towards the south east
and parts of Northern Ireland as well. Further north, Scotland may
well stay dry, the North West of Scotland is the place to be, quite a
bit of sunshine. Cool breeze off the North Sea,
