He says it's because of a postcode lottery.

:00:00.:00:16.

It's not fair, just because you live in a certain area that you

:00:17.:00:20.

plus the family at the front line. Six brothers sent to battle in the

:00:21.:00:55.

front line at the great War. And it may be a little grey but it hasn't

:00:56.:00:59.

put off people who are visiting the Chatsworth County fair this weekend.

:01:00.:01:09.

Good evening and welcome to Friday's programme.

:01:10.:01:11.

They're calling it a new Jarrow march and it was winding its way

:01:12.:01:15.

The marchers arrived in the region yesterday,

:01:16.:01:19.

their avowed aim to stop wh`t they see as the privatisation of the NHS

:01:20.:01:22.

They left Nottingham this morning on their way to Loughborough.

:01:23.:01:29.

They're against private companies operating within the NHS

:01:30.:01:32.

despite Government assurancds the health service will rem`in

:01:33.:01:35.

One of the complaints about budgetary limits is

:01:36.:01:41.

Our health Correspondent Rob Sissons examines the question of

:01:42.:01:47.

whether we really have a National Health Service at `ll.

:01:48.:01:52.

Even getting up stairs can be a struggle.

:01:53.:01:55.

Ian's surgeon recommended a hip arthroscopy,

:01:56.:01:58.

that a keyhole operation but locally the NHS won't fund it for hhm.

:01:59.:02:03.

They would go in and tidy up the torn labrum,

:02:04.:02:06.

which is the coating over the bone, which is torn in my case.

:02:07.:02:14.

Fighting for months, he's been in pain.

:02:15.:02:17.

The NHS said they won't pay because he has an impingement

:02:18.:02:19.

I just want it fixed at the end of the day.

:02:20.:02:24.

I don't agree that because H've got an impingement in my hip th`t I m

:02:25.:02:29.

But in some other parts of Dngland that isn't a barrier.

:02:30.:02:37.

I pay my National Insurance at the end of every month.

:02:38.:02:42.

He knows from Facebook it c`n be a different story.

:02:43.:02:44.

Jenna's in Greater Manchester where patients

:02:45.:02:46.

wouldn't want to be sat in ` car for a couple of hours because it

:02:47.:03:08.

It seems tied up in a load of over`bureaucratised nonsdnse and

:03:09.:03:17.

policy which is basically preventing Ian from having the operation.

:03:18.:03:20.

It's not fair that just bec`use you live in a certain area you should

:03:21.:03:23.

This case raises some big qtestions about the nature

:03:24.:03:39.

It does. We were hoping for more enters tonight. We contacted the

:03:40.:03:51.

Department of Health and thdy told us it is down to local clinhcians to

:03:52.:03:54.

make decisions about spending. As for the Nottingham city clinical

:03:55.:04:09.

commissioning group, they s`id no one was available to do an hnterview

:04:10.:04:13.

tonight. They did a bus a written statement.

:04:14.:04:14.

And how does it explain the situation?

:04:15.:04:16.

This statement says they ard unable to comment publicly. And th`t they

:04:17.:04:30.

have a finite budget for Nottingham. They have to judge the needs of the

:04:31.:04:36.

whole population of the citx. They are following local policy to make

:04:37.:04:39.

sure there is equity across the region.

:04:40.:04:45.

There is a glimmer of hope. They said they will review the policy and

:04:46.:04:51.

look at any new evidence th`t is available.

:04:52.:04:55.

So where does this all leavd Ian then?

:04:56.:05:02.

They think there may be a hhp replacement but he thinks that is to

:05:03.:05:10.

drastic. He has contacted hhs MP and says he will fight on.

:05:11.:05:12.

It's Sarah and Maurice with you this Friday.

:05:13.:05:14.

Still lots to come between now and 7.00pm, including the htge

:05:15.:05:17.

Esteban Cambiosso says he's thrilled at the prospect of joining

:05:18.:05:22.

I hope he has signed up to the British weather. There are signs of

:05:23.:05:39.

some summary whether on the way It should make him feel more at home.

:05:40.:05:49.

Next tonight, the hunt for 12 inmates who are on the run

:05:50.:05:52.

from an East Midlands prison, some for more than 20 years.

:05:53.:05:54.

Derbyshire police admit that all of their efforts to trace them have

:05:55.:05:57.

So they're asking for help from the public.

:05:58.:06:00.

They are the dirty dozen. 12 inmates who either fled or failed to return

:06:01.:06:16.

to prison. That was between 199 and 2006. It was a time when thd

:06:17.:06:21.

authorities didn't issue public appeals to help them trace people.

:06:22.:06:27.

Among them this man. Last sden in 1997. He was convicted of mtrder at

:06:28.:06:34.

Leicester Crown Court in 1977. The police say they haven't givdn up

:06:35.:06:40.

hope of tracing all 12 men. We appreciate their appearances will

:06:41.:06:44.

have changed. It is whether somebody out there has an idea of whdre they

:06:45.:06:48.

might be. We have concentrated on some of the contacts we knew they

:06:49.:06:52.

had at the time they will h`ve new contacts now. The government says

:06:53.:06:59.

open resins are vital to rehabilitating long`term offenders

:07:00.:07:04.

and that the national rate far outstanding inmates has reached a

:07:05.:07:10.

record low. A further 13 inlates since 2007 are outstanding. That

:07:11.:07:13.

brings the jail 's missing total to 25. Derbyshire police says the

:07:14.:07:18.

security of this prison and the inmates which are brought hdre is

:07:19.:07:22.

purely a matter for the Minhstry of Justice. But that the force will do

:07:23.:07:28.

all it can to recapture those who have gone on the run from hdre.

:07:29.:07:35.

A woman from Leicester says she s concerned hundreds of NHS p`tients

:07:36.:07:37.

are facing dangerous delays to deliveries of their medicathon.

:07:38.:07:41.

She's treated at the city's Royal Infirmary but her prescription

:07:42.:07:48.

She says her medication oftdn arrives late and she fears

:07:49.:07:55.

Healthcare at Home has apologised and says it's working

:07:56.:07:59.

I'm really worried because you're not supposed to get

:08:00.:08:06.

stressed or over tired because that can trigger a relapse.

:08:07.:08:10.

The fact that I have all thhs stress and anxiety about getting mx meds,

:08:11.:08:14.

And the fact that I've run out of my medication on several

:08:15.:08:18.

occasions due to the companx's ineptitude, I think is a disgrace.

:08:19.:08:21.

A busy road junction will bd closed from tonight and over

:08:22.:08:29.

the weekend because of work to extend the Nottingham tram network.

:08:30.:08:32.

The junction where Queen's Road East meets University Boulevard will shut

:08:33.:08:35.

It's due to open again on Monday morning.

:08:36.:08:39.

Drivers are advised to allow more time and find alternative routes.

:08:40.:08:56.

All this week we've been commemorating the centenary of the

:08:57.:08:59.

start of the Great War with live broadcasts from France and Belgium.

:09:00.:09:02.

Today we round off the coverage with a remarkable story of six

:09:03.:09:05.

Astonishingly all of them rdturned home safely to Radcliffe on Trent

:09:06.:09:09.

The son of one of those soldiers is Bob Flowers, who's been resdarching

:09:10.:09:12.

his family's history and told me what he discovered.

:09:13.:09:15.

Well, this is where my grandfather and grandmother lived

:09:16.:09:19.

As you can see, it's not very big but it was big enough, obviously.

:09:20.:09:25.

All six boys were eligible `nd of the age to go in the

:09:26.:09:30.

This is George, he was in the Grenadier Guards.

:09:31.:09:35.

This is William in the Sherwood Foresters.

:09:36.:09:41.

He was the next and, of course, Sherwood Foresters is

:09:42.:09:43.

He was in the machine gun corps and he was in Turkey.

:09:44.:09:49.

He was in India and he was hn the King's Own Yorkshire Light Hnfantry.

:09:50.:09:55.

Harold was a Regular and he was in the Lincolnshire Regiment.

:09:56.:10:05.

And, as you can see, he was a colour sergeant.

:10:06.:10:07.

It must've been tough times for your grandmother, waiting for news?

:10:08.:10:10.

There were pretty well used to hardship.

:10:11.:10:17.

Can you imagine living here and waiting for them to comd home?

:10:18.:10:21.

It doesn't seem like 100 ye`rs ago, but it's amazing isn't it?

:10:22.:10:27.

This is St Mary's Church and this is the Cenotaph, of course.

:10:28.:10:34.

Obviously on here, there are the names of many men from

:10:35.:10:36.

Fortunately, my dad and his brothers aren't recorded there because they

:10:37.:10:44.

The chances of that happening were very remote.

:10:45.:10:50.

You would've thought ` although two of them are quhte badly

:10:51.:10:53.

wounded ` but you would've thought that we would have lost one or two

:10:54.:10:58.

It's quite poignant when you think about it.

:10:59.:11:04.

When you see the names and you think, well, we werd lucky.

:11:05.:11:10.

Talk me through the remembrance parade.

:11:11.:11:15.

Well, since 1948 I've never missed a remembrance service paradd

:11:16.:11:20.

It stretched right through the village as far as you c`n see

:11:21.:11:27.

and it was all the men of the First World War and then, subsequdntly,

:11:28.:11:31.

The parade has gradually got less and less because the gtys

:11:32.:11:42.

How interesting has it been for you to research your falily

:11:43.:11:49.

The more you learn about thd First World War the sadder xou get.

:11:50.:11:55.

The trenches, the disease and the hardships.

:11:56.:11:59.

Blokes really wanted to put it behind them.

:12:00.:12:01.

They wanted to forget it because it was so horrible they

:12:02.:12:03.

You can imagine what it was like when they came home

:12:04.:12:08.

and all six of them managed to get through the war and come hole.

:12:09.:12:13.

They've got to pull themselves together and get

:12:14.:12:15.

on with what they've got to do and that's precisely what they did.

:12:16.:12:19.

They all re`established lifd and it was super.

:12:20.:12:23.

It is heartening that they survived. So

:12:24.:12:37.

Thank you, Bob, for sharing such a fascinating story.

:12:38.:12:40.

And thanks to all of you for the kind comments you've made about

parachutists came in in style. I'm heading up there tomorrow and

:16:06.:16:17.

I'm very excited. First,

:16:18.:16:33.

it's taken weeks of negotiations, but finally Esteban Cambiasso is

:16:34.:16:34.

a Leicester City player. The Argentinian internation`l is

:16:35.:16:36.

a genuine world superstar. He's played for Real Madrid

:16:37.:16:38.

and Inter Milan and is potentially We were the only TV camera here at

training this morning. Leicdster City have pulled off a real coup.

:16:56.:17:13.

For them the first option... Pharma legend is now 34 years old.

:17:14.:17:20.

He has joined on a free transfer as part of a 12 month deal. In my

:17:21.:17:39.

country, I think for my futtre for all I need to play in the Premier

:17:40.:17:46.

League. We were always confhdent that once we got him over hdre that

:17:47.:17:54.

we could make it happen. He has been as big a driving force as wd have.

:17:55.:18:03.

To be at the training ground this morning and to see the excitement

:18:04.:18:08.

from the players... And othdr fans to. They were selling shirts very

:18:09.:18:18.

fast. He is an international star. Class. Everybody have spoken to is

:18:19.:18:27.

looking forward to Sunday. Ht's good to be a brilliant day. He is a very

:18:28.:18:38.

good, intelligent player. It will be a big challenge for us. He's one of

:18:39.:18:45.

the most decorated players from Argentina. It is hoped he whll make

:18:46.:18:48.

his Leicester City debut on Sunday. Looks like more signings

:18:49.:18:52.

on the way at Leicester. QPR today said they'd accepted a bid

:18:53.:18:55.

from the Foxes for Danny Silpson. Nottingham Forest manager

:18:56.:19:00.

Stuart Pearce says it's unlhkely he'll be making any more signings

:19:01.:19:03.

before the transfer window closes. But you can't argue with wh`t he

:19:04.:19:06.

and his current squad are doing Pearce takes them to

Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow sitting When a new manager arrives ht's

running this season and as far as results go, the Stuart Pearce reign

:19:22.:19:29.

has had an almost perfect start Unbeaten in six,

:19:30.:19:35.

with five wins and a draw. They've kept four clean shedts

:19:36.:19:39.

and are the league's top scorers with ten

:19:40.:19:43.

goals so far in the Championship. The character of the squad,

:19:44.:19:47.

I've been very pleased with, At times we have been second best,

:19:48.:19:53.

but I really get the impression we Pearce is clearly relishing

:19:54.:20:00.

the challenge at Forest, In his own words, this is more than

:20:01.:20:04.

just a job to him and he sh`res I know the fans are desperate

:20:05.:20:10.

for us to deliver success. That's an easy,

:20:11.:20:16.

throwaway line because everx club in the country has got an epual set

:20:17.:20:20.

of fans that want exactly the same. It certainly does excite me to be

:20:21.:20:24.

working at this football cltb. A good start for the new gaffer

:20:25.:20:27.

then, but tomorrow he faces a big test

:20:28.:20:29.

against a team who have had their It will without doubt be

:20:30.:20:32.

our toughest test of the se`son and if we're not up for the game we

:20:33.:20:39.

will get beaten at Sheffield. We're top of the league

:20:40.:20:43.

at moment this moment in tile. That is the challenge

:20:44.:20:45.

for the players. Can we stay there come Saturday

:20:46.:20:48.

night? But, it's a long season

:20:49.:20:50.

and you've got to make sure that That is the key word for us

:20:51.:20:53.

at this football club, We have to get better

:20:54.:20:56.

and we will keep evolving. Derby County have signed Liverpool's

by everyone around the club. The boys are a good bunch

Sunday is because Trent Bridge hosts a massive One Day International

a capacity crowd will be watching. It's a busy weekend. Were hoping you

:23:48.:24:11.

will have some good news about sunshine.

:24:12.:24:19.

The weekend isn't looking too bad. We've had some brisk winds `nd a few

:24:20.:24:30.

showers. An area of low pressure to the north of Scotland has bden given

:24:31.:24:39.

as some south`westerly winds. We will stay under the influence of

that some time. Eventually the showers will fade away. And Sunday

should be drier, brighter and warmer. The winds have been really

Leicester E today, quite a lot of cloud around. It good to st`y this

way overnight so quite a lot of cloud and showers here and there. It

:25:00.:25:09.

will be a relatively warm nhght with loads of 13 to 14 Celsius. The

:25:10.:25:13.

majority of showers should clear away by the morning. It will be dry

:25:14.:25:18.

with sunshine and brightness here and there. The winds will stay

brisk. Showers will push in throughout the afternoon but the

majority of us will miss those. The breeze will stay where this in the

The winds will ease down th`nks to an area of high pressure whhch is
