It's emerged that people living tonight. Newsnight is

:00:00.:00:19.

It's emerged that people living near Nottingham's tram works were

:00:20.:00:21.

offered six weeks' accommod`tion in a hotel because the noisd

:00:22.:00:25.

at night was so bad. People in 120 properties

:00:26.:00:26.

near the tramline extension in Beeston were made the offer.

:00:27.:00:34.

And twenty six of them accepted The work's due to go on

:00:35.:00:36.

until early next year. The local MP is unhappy

:00:37.:00:39.

and thinks a better compens`tion package should be available.

:00:40.:00:42.

Well earlier, I spoke to MP Anna Soubry and asked her for her view of

:00:43.:00:45.

the situation facing her constituents in Beeston.

:00:46.:00:55.

Has been over 18 months that they have been put through a nightmare.

:00:56.:01:16.

So with that accepted by thd company that people have been having a

:01:17.:01:25.

terrible time? There was an acceptance that it meant people

:01:26.:01:29.

would not get a good night's sleep. The bigger picture is peopld have

:01:30.:01:35.

worked in the middle of a htge piece of infrastructure for well over 18

:01:36.:01:39.

months and the lives have bden made intolerable. These people should not

:01:40.:01:45.

have had to have it like thhs. It has been dreadful for them. I wish

:01:46.:01:49.

people would wake up and re`lise they have had a rotten time and they

:01:50.:01:51.

should do the right thing bx them. A teenager from Nottingham hs

:01:52.:02:02.

thought to have become the country's youngest bone marrow donor today.

:02:03.:02:04.

He's Ethan Buttress, a 17`year`old student.

:02:05.:02:05.

Today's procedure though was made possible by

:02:06.:02:08.

the work of another local student. Adrian Sudbury died in 2008

:02:09.:02:10.

but before he lost the fight against leukaemia he campaigned

:02:11.:02:13.

for teenagers to become donors. James Roberson reports.

:02:14.:02:15.

It May be six years since their son died but

:02:16.:02:22.

their pride in him shows no end The video shows news footagd taken

:02:23.:02:25.

of him during his final months while he battled with leukadmia

:02:26.:02:32.

and wrote a blog about it. I was in such a unique position to

:02:33.:02:36.

try and change something th`t offered quite a simple solution to

:02:37.:02:38.

a major problem in our country. It seems a bit rude

:02:39.:02:41.

if I am not bothered. He had become a journalist hn

:02:42.:02:44.

Yorkshire and took his camp`ign for young people to register as donors

:02:45.:02:47.

all the way to Downing Stredt, meeting the ten Prime Minister.

:02:48.:02:49.

He said if more people know how simple and

:02:50.:02:55.

easy it is and how straightforward and safe it is to do this m`ny more

:02:56.:02:59.

people will want to join. That was what sparked the Rdgister

:03:00.:03:04.

And Be A Lifesaver programmd. The person donating today is

:03:05.:03:10.

from his old school. We wish Ethan all the best today.

:03:11.:03:14.

This is not the end of the story. Adrian went to college,

:03:15.:03:19.

that has been so supportive with what we want to do.

:03:20.:03:23.

And to think something that came from our son has now saved

:03:24.:03:27.

as many as potentially 14 lhves We feel very proud about wh`t Adrian

:03:28.:03:37.

started. Police are concerned

:03:38.:03:39.

for the safety of a teenager with cerebral palsy who's gone mhssing

:03:40.:03:42.

from his home in Derby. Michael Bado is 17

:03:43.:03:44.

and walks with a limp because of the condition he has.

:03:45.:03:47.

He went missing at around 7 o'clock this morning from his home

:03:48.:03:49.

in Princes Street in Derby. He's a Slovak

:03:50.:03:51.

and doesn't speak English. Police are asking people

:03:52.:03:53.

in the area to check gardens and outbuildings and if anyone sees

:03:54.:03:56.

Michael, to ring 101. The scientist who developed genetic

:03:57.:03:59.

fingerprinting has been honoured with a new portrait

:04:00.:04:01.

at the University of Leicester. Sir Alec Jeffreys returned to

:04:02.:04:03.

the university where he carried out his groundbreaking research,

:04:04.:04:06.

to unveil the portrait. Today marks the 30th anniversary

:04:07.:04:09.

of the moment when his famots scientific breakthrough was made.

:04:10.:04:21.

When I first set up this department and gave a talk about the ability of

:04:22.:04:31.

DNA. When it came out peopld just fell over laughing and thought I had

:04:32.:04:38.

lost the plot. The thought xou do not combine DNA with forenshc

:04:39.:04:43.

science but time has proven me right.

:04:44.:04:47.

14 recovering addicts from Loughborough are spendhng

:04:48.:04:50.

a month trying to save the lives of abandoned babies.

:04:51.:04:52.

They're going to South Africa to build a nursery in a place that s

:04:53.:04:55.

suffering from an AIDS epiddmic Our Social Affairs Correspondent,

:04:56.:04:56.

Jeremy Ball, heard about the distressing

:04:57.:04:57.

conditions driving the projdct. The rehab centre we're formdr

:04:58.:05:14.

addicts are preparing for something that could soon save lives.

:05:15.:05:19.

They are going to convert a disused church hall into ` warm

:05:20.:05:28.

for up to 50 abandoned babids. It will save my `

:05:29.:05:31.

change my life too. In my old life I was probably very

:05:32.:05:33.

selfish and it is getting something back.

:05:34.:05:35.

Doing something positive for the project over there will be

:05:36.:05:38.

beneficial to me and my development in my recovery.

:05:39.:05:40.

This man runs the Carpenters Arms Centre and came up

:05:41.:05:43.

with the project after visiting South Africa and seeing horrific

:05:44.:05:46.

pictures of the bodies of unwanted babies who had been abandondd.

:05:47.:05:49.

There was one that had been thrown out of a moving car on a motorway.

:05:50.:05:51.

In one place the dreams were blocked and they

:05:52.:06:02.

found 14 babies stuck in thd pipe. I cried and cried about it.

:06:03.:06:13.

It really got to me. We could not walk away from it.

:06:14.:06:26.

Eventually they hope to build a whole village, a place for

:06:27.:06:29.

foster families to raise those abandoned babies giving thel a life

:06:30.:06:31.

and a future. That's your news. So, It's goodbye

:06:32.:06:32.

from me but here's your weather Thank you. We have had the beautiful

:06:33.:06:44.

September day to day and thhs trend of settled weather is set to

:06:45.:06:49.

continue on the rest of the week. It will be dry and fine with stnny

:06:50.:06:54.

spells. It will state settldd tonight with clear spells and light

:06:55.:07:02.

winds. A rather chilly night with some mist and fog patches. That mist

:07:03.:07:06.

and fog will remain first thing but will quite quickly clear. It will be

:07:07.:07:13.

a decent day with plenty of sunshine to be had but this code will roll in

:07:14.:07:18.

as we go through the day. Where we do get cloud it will break to get

:07:19.:07:23.

some sunshine. Feeling pleasant for the time of year. Another dry and

:07:24.:07:28.

settled the on Friday. The cloud will break to give sunny spdlls

around, more breeze as well. Still dry.

rest of the United Kingdom? English MPs would want to

:07:38.:07:43.

Plenty to talk about by day and by night. The mornings are distinctly

:07:44.:07:57.

chilly. A lot of clear sky out there today on the satellite picture, a

:07:58.:08:02.

bit of fair weather cloud. The thicker, rain-bearing cloud is still

:08:03.:08:06.

kept well at bay. There seems to be some sort of force field keeping

:08:07.:08:10.

that thicker cloud away from the UK. That is provided by a block of high

:08:11.:08:14.

pressure and these blocks take some shifting. For the time being, the
